Hardening of your Heart & The Barly is Aviv 2010

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

The Second Sabbatical Year of the 119th Jubilee Cycle

March 13, 2010

Shabbat Shalom Brethren,

I just got word from Nehemiah Gordon that the Barley is Aviv and that Passover will be determined once the New Moon is sighted.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote you about what I thought was one of the reasons for the severe earthquake in Haiti. This week a reader sent me the following link http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/expatnews/7397964/Voodoo-practitioners-shrug-off-blame-for-Haitian-quake.html

You should read it and as you do consider what it says in Revelations as the judgments of Yahweh are poured on mankind; that mankind did not repent of their sins. They hardened their hearts and continued to rebel against Yahweh and would not obey His Torah.

Since Haiti we have had major earthquakes in Chili, Taiwan, Alaska, Fiji, Philippines, Greece, Argentina, Tonga, Japan, Micronesia, Costa Rica, China, Mongolia, Indonesia and Colombia all of a 4.5 Magnitude or greater. But there has also been hundreds of a lesser magnitude and even here in Ontario and Quebec and throughout the USA. Most of the ones I have mentioned here happened from March 3, 2010, to March 10, 2010.

Most of the Christian evangelists and even some of the News media are wondering if these events are the earthquakes of Mathew 24 that Yahshua spoke of. They are guessing and do not know; But you Brethren, have no need to wonder, you know because you have been following and proving the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycle. You know that we are about to enter the third Sabbatical Cycle at this Aviv and you also know that during the next 7 years you can expect Pestilence as we are warned in Leviticus 26. That is why you were not caught unaware by the Swine Flu Pandemic.

Take a look at the headline news for the past few months from South America.

Argentina: drought has killed 700.000 cattle and delayed sowing Feb 2010

Here are some more south American disasters that you might want to keep in mind from http://www.reliefweb.int/rw/dbc.nsf/doc108?OpenForm&emid=DR-2010-000029-TTO&rc=2
• Haiti: Floods and Mudslides – Mar 2010
• Chile: Earthquake – Feb 2010
• Caribbean: Drought – Feb 2010
• Mexico: Floods and Landslides – Feb 2010
• Haiti: Earthquakes – Jan 2010
• Bolivia: Floods – Jan 2010
• Honduras: Drought – Dec 2009
• Peru: Floods and Landslides – Dec 2009
• Ecuador: Drought – Nov 2009
• Argentina/Uruguay: Floods – Nov 2009
• Brazil: Floods – Nov 2009

• Paraguay: Floods – Oct 2009
• Bolivia: Drought – Oct 2009
• Haiti: Floods and Mudslides – Sep 2009
• Guatemala: Food Insecurity – Sep 2009

You also know from our studies that Pestilence almost always goes with famines, and this is also what we are expecting during this next 7 year period as well. As well because you have been proving these things to yourselves and not just believing me because I said so, you also know that the only place where earthquakes and Pestilences and famines were mentioned together was in Mathew 24 when Yahshua described the next 7 years period. In the very next verse Yahshua says in verse 8 that All these are the beginning of sorrows. This is just the beginning. Ponder on that. It is now just getting to the point where there will be sorrows. Sorrows is also translated as birth pangs and also as troubles.

The Orthodox and Hassidic Rabbonim Declare “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” – Reported by ben Yosef – March 22, 2001.
At the Western Wall today and in yeshivas and synagogues and religious schools throughout Israel the sound of shofar blasts, the singing of Hebrew Psalms and cries and tears and wails of repentance were heard in response to a declaration by the Gedolei Yisrael (Great Ones of Israel) formally recognizing the beginning of the “time of Jacob’s trouble.”

The next verse of Mathew 24 is verse 9 and Yahshua warns us that 9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

This video is very disturbing but you need to be aware of what is already taking place. People are being killed for what they believe now. I showed you one like this from India a few weeks ago. This one is from Nigeria. Are you ready for this or are you still playing religion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KownXxNaxaM

In order for the nations of the world to hate us, we have to speak out and proclaim the True Torah message. Otherwise they will never know who we are. You can no longer hide behind the door of your home. We all have to begin to speak up and warn them of what is coming and why. The Guys at work keep asking me more questions with each earthquake. They say when they see that I no longer come to work then they will worry, but they will not do anything until it is too late. That day is fast approaching.

You all need to decide if you’re ready to support this work during the next 7 years; the next 7 years will be the last 7 years that we will be able to warn the Nations of North America, Canada and the USA.

Brethren this is all explained in great detail in the book The Prophecies of Abraham. You need to read it. There are some of you who are sitting on your wallets like Fort Knox; the Sabbatical year of rest when you do not have to tithe is coming to an end. In the first year of this third cycle you will be expected to give 10% to Yahweh so that He can do His work and bless you. You must soon decide who it is that is doing that work and support them. The great thing is you can decide who that is.

Let me tell you what Sightedmoon.com has been doing. We have been selling the book The Prophecies of Abraham at a small profit on each book. But we have given away almost as many as we have sold. I have paid for advertising on Facebook, and this week I begin a $5000 dollar ad campaign bringing Christians to the web site to buy the book and to see what we have posted at www.sightedmoon.com . As I told you a few weeks ago the hunters are coming and I am now throwing my nets into bigger waters. This ad campaign is going to be seen by 60 million Christians and runs for two months. If you have any marketing skills and would like to help, I could use some help.

I am also going to do a book interview with a major Christian Radio station in Southern Ontario with a listening audience of 7 million. These interviews also cost just under $1000 to do.

There has been just a hand full of people who have sent money to help once in a while. There has been one elderly lady who has consistently sent $50 each month all the way from Australia. Yahweh is the one who is going to bless these people. All you have to do is read it in Malachi and believe it. Put Him to the test, He dares to.

Many of you have written to tell me how much you have learnt from the News Letters. I greatly appreciate that. I do this on the weekends and in the evenings after working a full time job and most of this is paid for from my own wages. There is much we have to do in the next 7 years, actually there is a ton of things to be done in preparation before the next Sabbatical cycle of war. The word still has to go out during this time period, and we need to prepare for it now. A number of you have written to tell me to keep you in the loop as to what we are trying to do in Israel. I will be writing to you soon, but the obstacles we are facing are huge. The proverbs 31 woman which is Israel went out and prepared things for the family and did not sit around and wait for her husband to do everything. She worked too. We need to be working and we need to be doing it now.

You can now get up early in the morning and watch the last stages as the moon goes down in the east just before sunrise. Then we can be looking for the New Moon about March 17. We are also waiting on word from Jerusalem about whether or not the Barley is going to be ripe for the wave Sheaf offering on the first day of the week after the weekly Sabbath. It has now been confrimed by Nehemiah Gordon on FB.

You can read about the Barley and why it is needed to determine the beginning of the year at http://www.karaite-korner.org/abib.shtml

So right now we have two variables to deal with. One is whether or not the barley is going to be ripe. The other is when the New Moon will been seen. Until these two things have been determined then we cannot know exactly when Passover and the days of Unleavened bread will be. Only once these things have been determined will we know which days to keep Holy. It is very hard to book flights and hotels and to plan your trips for the season. And this is exactly why Yahshua said ‘No man can know the day or the hour.’ Unlike those who use the conjunction to determine the holy days. They can know with precision years in advance, but by doing it this way they null and void the saying that Yahshua said. By using the conjunction you will know the day and the hour but by using the sighted moon method you will never know the day or the hour and this year is another case in point.

Once we know the time for the spring Holy Days then we will know about when the fall Holy days begin. Again we will not know for sure until the New Moon is sighted to begin the seventh month. This first day of the seventh month is the Feast of trumpets or Feast of Blowing. This first day is determined by the sighted moon and again the Hebrewism about No man can know the day of the hour is true for this time as well. But you all should know that the Feast of Trumpets is the day that represents when Yahshua will return on. Just as Passover represented the time when He would be killed, so the Feast of Trumpets on the first day of the Sighted moon of the seventh month represents the day He will return.

Yahweh keeps us on the edge of our seats in anticipation twice a year.

With the sighting of the New Moon this week marks the end of the 2nd Sabbatical year in this the last Jubilee cycle of this the sixth day of man.

At Sukkot this past fall myself and three other men read the Torah as we are commanded to do from the Watergate at the Temple. We did this with crowds of people shuffling by and wondering what we were doing. We did not stop until we had finished it.

During this Sabbatical year we are also commanded to forgive those who owed us money. This commandment also applies to forgiving anyone who has sinned against us. We are to forgive all debts during this year. Let no one owe you anything as the New Year is about to come. The real Rosh Hashanah.

Many of you did not plant this past year in accord with Leviticus 25 of letting the land rest. We did this from Aviv to Aviv. And now Aviv is about to begin a new year when we can plant and trim and harvest and put down what grows.

We put down food and only ate what we had stored up trying to obey Yahweh and draw closer to Him. Soon you will be able to go out to a restaurant again. Many of you only learned of the Sabbatical year part way through it. You did not have time to prepare and store up. But when you did find out you did the best you could. We are going to continue to eat from our stored up foods until the new crops come in and as they do then we can eat the fresh harvest and be weaned off the old. I did this even when I was in Israel, so it can be done even as you travel. Again this is why it says that we would eat the old store until the eighth and ninth year and this is speaking of the barley. May Yahweh bless you abundantly for working at obeying Him and showing yourself approved.

I would like to share the prayer I am offering up at this time in this the end of the Sabbatical year. You can and should say your own. I am just sharing what I wanted to thank Yahweh for as we draw to the close of this sabbatical Cycle.

Our Father, all powerful and all merciful, Yahweh. How awesome it is to be able to say your name. Whether it is Yahuweh Yahovah or Yahweh. My Elohim, my teacher;
Each day, each week, each year, and now with each Sabbatical Cycle you have shown us and taught us your Torah, our Torah on how we are to live and conduct our lives so that all in your Kingdom will live in peace and harmony.

With each thing that you teach us, when we obey and begin to do what you have shown us, you then teach us something new.

You showed me how to keep the Sabbath over many years. Then you showed me how to keep the Holy Days. It was just 5 years ago you showed me the need to keep the Holy Days according to the Sighted moon to start the month. And at the same time the need to do so according to the Barley being Aviv. Once I started to do that you then revealed to me the Sabbatical and jubilee cycles with so much clearer understanding of what the scriptures meant because of this new perspective.

Once I was doing this you made it possible to go to Israel, to your home, to my home and you revealed so many things to me at this time that my head spun. You also made peace in Turkey and in Iran at this time so that it was possible to go to Noah’s Ark and again you revealed things to me that I am in awe over. It is just so unbelievable.

You gave me the opportunity to share with so many others the things I was learning and then we all could learn together. This has been such a great trip, and I thank you so much for what you have done and all the brethren that I have met.

Each week you test us with whether or not we are going to keep the Sabbath. You test us again on each of the Holy Days to see if we will take the time to keep our appointment with you.

And now with the revealing of the Sabbatical year you again put us to the test to see if we would keep it. Many of us did, and some found out only after it was too late to store up food. But they did what they could with what they had.

And now that we have kept this Sabbatical year you have again revealed something even more profound and unbelievable, You have shown us the Prophecies of Abraham. The information in this teaching and the understanding that this has shown us is beyond words. Those who have read it are shocked.

I know you will top this and I am in awe of what you have already revealed to us and how you also can conceal the same thing from those who will not obey.

You have shown us that this year of 2010 is the year to return to our Home; That the curse of 2730 years is now over for the House of Israel. We have been fasting in repentance of the sins we have done against you and the sins our fathers and ancestors have done all this time against you and the Torah to which our fathers had agreed but would not do. We have fasted to draw near to you. Keep us in the middle of your palm and do not let us fail to be obedient, but finish the work you have begun in us.

We have tried to do what we were shown to do in this Sabbatical year. We will not have kept it totally correct. Forgive us our mistakes and help us to improve and to be better equipped for the next one in 2016-2017. Father this one will be even harder to keep as you have shown us that the world will be going to war at this time, and there will be famines and earthquakes and pestilences, and that is on top of the severe weather and the ongoing Terrorism. Father watch over us and protect us and our families.

As we come to the end of this Sabbatical year we can see the work that must be done during the next 7 years. It is beyond our capabilities and beyond the scope of any one person. It can only be done if it is done by your hand. Guide us Father with your strong and gentle hand to do the mighty works that will have to be done in this next Sabbatical cycle. Inspire us all, your flocks around the world to stand together and to shout out this last warning to Israel and then to the rest of the world. Help us to be heard above all the rest. Open the doors that we need to go through, and give us the courage to go through them with boldness.

My Father Yahweh, thank you. Thank you for showing us these truths at this time. Thank you for revealing to us the Sabbatical year so that we can have the opportunity to keep it Holy and let the Land, the earth which is your footstool rest. Thank you.

Finally Father, there are more and more brethren coming to understand your ways who live in countries that hate this way of live. Countries who want to wipe Israel off the map. Please watch over them and protect them in the days and years to come.

Again Father thank you for the opportunity to keep this Sabbatical year. Please now bless us and equip us to do the work that now must be done. Give us the courage of David and the Wisdom of Solomon. Give us the spirit of Elijah and the endurance of Noah and of Moses. Father encourage us and bless us as we go forward to do the work you have ordained to be done in preparation of the arrival of our Groom and your Kingdom. Again I give you thanks for all you have done for us and revealed to us and I ask for you to bless us individually and as a whole; to enhance the gifts and talents we each have and to bless us so that the world will know you are with us and we ask this in the name of the one who is to Save us. Yah Shua.

Holger has written to advise me of his essential Oils Healing course in the Galilee at Passover this year. You can read what he has to say at Healing Course on Essential Oils under the essential oils.

Hardening Your Heart

This is my favorite time of the year. It is pregnant with meaning. Passover, The Exodus, The Passion and Crucifixion. The Ten Commandments. It is just an awesome time for studying the scriptures. It is because this time of year is so full of Hindsight that we can get a glimpse of or come to understand the deeper meaning of the other Holy Days.

I have received a number of favorable comments about the Pride of Ephraim which we spoke of last week. Thank you. Many of you thought I was writing about you last week. This too was a compliment and I am glad to know so many took what I said personally.

We are nearing the time of the Exodus and Passover once again and there are some things we all need to consider.

As we have been fasting for a number of weeks now and humbling ourselves before Yahweh, we should be realizing that we are doing this to repent of our evil ways which are an abomination to Yahweh.

Yes we are doing as Daniel did as he pondered the end of the 70 weeks of captivity on Judah. And we are doing this as we come to the end of the 390 year times 7 curse on Israel. But at the same time we are also to putting out of our lives the leaven which puffs up. This is done symbolically by actually hunting for leaven and removing it from our homes. It is work and it is hard work. This is actually where we get the expression spring cleaning from. We do this to draw closer to Yahweh.

We have done it our way for 2730 years, it is now time to try it Yahweh’s way.

Because it is Passover season I want to focus this message on just one point. It is about the Hardness of the heart.

We read in Ex 4:21 And the Yahweh said to Moses, “When you go back to Egypt, see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh which I have put in your hand. But I will harden his heart, so that he will not let the people go.

You should take a moment and read all of Exodus 7.

We can read how Pharaoh’s heart was hardened in Exodus 8:19, 9:7, 9:35, and 14:4 as well.

In each case it was Yahweh that hardened the heart of Pharaoh.

So instead of reading right over something it behooves us to ask ‘what is hardening of the Heart? What does this expression really mean to us today?’

Here is what Strong’s has to say about it.

We have another example of Yahweh hardening the heart of Sihon
De 2:30 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass through, for Yahweh your Eloim hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate, that He might deliver him into your hand, as it is this day.

Here we are told another meaning of the Hard heart. Obstinate. We can read in Isaiah 48: 1 “Hear this, O house of Jacob, Who are called by the name of Israel, And have come forth from the wellsprings of Judah; Who swear by the name of Yahweh, And make mention of the El of Israel, But not in truth or in righteousness; 2 For they call themselves after the holy city, And lean on the Eloim of Israel; Yahweh is His name: 3 “I have declared the former things from the beginning; They went forth from My mouth, and I caused them to hear it. Suddenly I did them, and they came to pass. 4 Because I knew that you were obstinate, And your neck was an iron sinew, And your brow bronze,

We read in Psalms about our ancestors who did not change their hearts as a warning to us. Ps 78:8 And may not be like their fathers, A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation that did not set its heart aright, And whose spirit was not faithful to God.

In Job 41:24 When Yahweh asked Job about Leviathan , we are told that this monster has a heart of stone. Stubborn, rebellious, stiff necked, obstinate, difficult, apostolic, violent, rough, offensive, intolerable, cruel and hard. It is also a heart that has become dull, loosing the power of understanding.

This is indeed an extremely serious thing to become hard of heart, to become dull, and loosing the power of understanding. It is the heart of Satan, Leviathan, the serpent. Could this heart be in you? Before you all deny this stop and take a hard look at the way you are. The way things are in your family. Just ask your spouse or your kids, and listen carefully.

When Yahshua says in Mathew 15: 7 Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: 8 ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. 9 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”

What is Yahshua talking about? He is talking about the condition of the Heart. One that is unwilling to OBEY the commandments of Yahweh and would rather keep the traditions of those around them so that they fit in with society and do not stand out.

We are about to celebrate Passover. It is commanded by the torah. From doing this we learn so much about the death of the Messiah and the forgiveness of sin. But the world does not want to keep Passover. They fight it. Instead they keep Easter Sunday and worship a Rabbit that lays eggs. They have developed a hard heart.

Could we develop this hard heart? Could this Hard heart be in us Today?

YES on both accounts!!!

Look at Mark 6 starting verse 30 this is immediately after the execution of John. Yahshua had gathered the disciples to teach them and a crowd had gathered. In verse 34 Yahshua had compassion on the people as it says to do in Deut 15:7 “If there is among you a poor man of your brethren, within any of the gates in your land which Yahweh your Eloim is giving you, you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother,

He then took five loafs of bread and two fish and fed the five thousand. Right after this They saw Yahshua walking on the water and were afraid. Then in verse 52 it says For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened.

What is this? The Apostles hearts were hardened. Why?

Again in Mark 8 we read that Yahshua again fed four thousand from just seven loafs and a few fish. In verse 14 the disciple forgot to bring any food except for one loaf and when Messiah began to warn them of the leaven of the Pharisees, they did not understand.
In verse 17 Yahshua rebukes them Mr 8:17 But Yahshua, being aware of it, said to them, “Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened?

Do you not yet perceive nor understand?

To get the answer to this you need to read John 5-6. This is another sermon on its own. Verse 63 of John 6 says 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

The Apostles saw the miracles of feeding the multitudes, not once but at least twice. They saw the sick being made well. The dead brought back to life and yet in all this they were not sure He was the Messiah. Their hearts were still hard.

Listen to the Rebuke of Stephen just before he was murdered. Ac 7:51″You stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears! You always resist the Holy Spirit; as your fathers did, so do you. 52 Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who foretold the coming of the Just One, of whom you now have become the betrayers and murderers, 53 who have received the law by the direction of angels and have not kept it.”

These people resisted the Spirit having received the LAW and did not keep it.

Ephesians 4: 17 This I say, therefore, and testify in Yahweh, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of El, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling,( in other words whose hearts have been hardened) have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But you have not so learned of Messiah, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Yahshua: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to Yahweh, in true righteousness and holiness.

What is to become of those with this hard heart?

Ro 2:5 But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of Yahweh,
If you have a hard heart how do you make it not hard? You should know this. Are your hearts still hard that you do not yet understand what I am saying?

Mr 12:30 And you shall love Yahweh your Eloim with all your heart , with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.
This is talking about the first four of the Ten commandments.

1 John 2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 4 He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of Yahweh is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

1 John 3: 4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.

1 Ti 1:5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm. 8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed Yahweh which was committed to my trust.

To avoid sin we need to be keeping the law. The ten commandments. This will teach us how to have love from a pure heart. One that is not hard.

Lu 6:45A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

Joh7:38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
Rivers of living water is the same as rivers of the Holy Spirit.

In Luke 8 starting in verse 4 we read concerning the good seed.

15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience

Our Heart is like a plot of garden soil. If it is worked up and planted it will yield a good crop. If it is not worked, that is if you do not read the bible and study various subjects then the ground becomes hard, even stony and no crop will grow.

Hebrew 3: 7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you will hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness, 9 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years. 10 Therefore I was angry with that generation, And said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, And they have not known My ways.’ 11 So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’ ” 12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living El; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” 16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? 17 Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

Hebrew 4: 6 Since therefore it remains that some must enter it, and those to whom it was first preached did not enter because of disobedience, 7 again He designates a certain day, saying in David, “Today,” after such a long time, as it has been said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua had given them rest, then He would not afterward have spoken of another day. 9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of Yahweh. 10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as Yahweh did from His.
11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of Yahweh is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

I leave you with this last word. 2 Pet 2:1 But there also came to be false prophets among the people, as also among you there shall be false teachers, who shall secretly bring in destructive heresies, and deny the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 And many shall follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, 3 and in greed, with fabricated words, they shall use you for gain. From of old their judgment does not linger, and their destruction does not slumber. 4 For if Elohim did not spare the messengers who sinned, but sent them to Tartaros, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be kept for judgment, 5 and did not spare the world of old, but preserved Noah?, a proclaimer of righteousness, and seven others, bringing in the flood on the world of the wicked, 6 and having reduced to ashes the cities of Sed?om and Amorah condemned them to destruction – having made them an example to those who afterward would live wickedly, 7 and rescued righteous Lot, who was oppressed with the indecent behaviour of the lawless 8 (for day after day that righteous man, dwelling among them, tortured his righteous being by seeing and hearing their lawless works), 9 then ???? knows how to rescue the reverent ones from trial and to keep the unrighteous unto the day of judgment, to be punished, 10 and most of all those walking after the flesh in filthy lust and despising authority – bold, headstrong, speaking evil of esteemed ones, 11 whereas messengers who are greater in strength and power do not bring a slanderous accusation against them before the Master. 12 But these, like natural unreasoning beasts, having been born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheme that which they do not know, shall be destroyed in their destruction, 13 being about to receive the wages of unrighteousness, deeming indulgence in the day of pleasure, spots and blemishes, revelling in their own deceptions while they feast with you, 14 having eyes filled with an adulteress, and unable to cease from sin, enticing unstable beings, having a heart trained in greed, children of a curse, 15 having left the right way they went astray, having followed the way of Bil?am the son of Be?or, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, 16 but he was rebuked for his transgression: a dumb donkey speaking with the voice of a man restrained the madness of the prophet. 17 These are fountains without water, clouds driven by a storm, to whom the blackest darkness is kept forever. 18 For speaking arrogant nonsense, they entice – through the lusts of the flesh, through indecencies – the ones who have indeed escaped from those living in delusion, 19 promising them freedom, though themselves being slaves of corruption – for one is a slave to whatever overcomes him. 20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of the Master and Saviour ????? Messiah, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the first. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the set-apart command delivered unto them.

These are very strong words that Peter is writing here. I urge each of you to read it again and to do so slowly. Do not harden your hearts and resist the Holy Spirit that is now flowing in these the very last days.

Fast and pray to Yahweh to soften your heart and to help you to understand the error of your ways and as David said to know even your secret sins. Then repent from doing this again; That is turning 180 degrees and fleeing from the wrong way of life.

OK one more point.
In 1 Samuel we are told in chapter 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of Yahweh, He also has rejected you from being king.”

We are warned in Deuteronomy 18: 10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer,

Do you grasp just how abominable stubbornness and rebellion is to Yahweh? It is equal to the most detestable things on His list. Do not harden your heart and repent of your rebellious and stubborn ways. Do it while you have time.
