I am Keeping the Feasts

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.

Shabbat Shalom To the Royal Family,


I wanted to share with you the schedule that Brother Aike has set up and Yehovah has blessed him with. There is a lot of work that goes into this that is done ahead of time. Many people to meet and talk with. AIke has done this work. The dates are still being adjusted as we too wait and watch for the New Crescent Moon Sunday evening. Then we must adjust our dates to fit Yehovah’s schedule. Also, note that we are speaking to many Christian groups and for them, this is Good Friday and Easter Sunday. So if you get confused reading this schedule then Good Friday for them is The Passover day. Yes, we are going to share with them the truths.

Your donations have helped to make this all possible. Thank you to each person who has shared in this work with us. May Yehovah bless each of you.

Over the next few weeks, I am going to be more difficult to reach as I try to finalize my teachings for each of these speaking engagements and interviews.

I have also just received word that Nehemiah’s group has this year found Aviv Barley. This is a good year.

We have added a new section to the website. It was the idea of one of our readers. But it entailed a lot of work that I just did not have time to do.

So Jan Sytsma said she would take each article that we have posted since 2005 and edit out those things like local updates or some of my rants and post by category each teaching so that all of you can go there and read just what you want to study. Our Thanks to Jan for doing this and for James who has now set up the new section and has been posting the articles that Jan has edited.

Under the tab for the Library, we have this new section titled Library Article Archives. This section has all of our teachings by subject. You can get there by this link.

All of our weekly articles with all the other things they have in them can still be found by the year they were published at our link Archived Newsletter Directory.

There is still much more work to be done. So do keep these people in your prayers and check the new link out especially as we approach Passover Season.


I am Keeping the Feasts This year too

Many, many people now are wanting to keep the Holy Days. Many Christians are flocking to keep Passover. For them, Passover is kept on Good Friday and the wave sheaf day on Easter Sunday. For them, this makes perfect sense. Passover, after all, was on Good Friday. We read in the scriptures that Jesus died just before the Sabbath, that is why they had to get Him in the grave so fast. These same people know that Wave Sheaf day is Easter Sunday.

For many of these people, the sighting of the Crescent moon means nothing not to mention the barley. What do we need barley for anyway? What has that to do with the death and resurrection of Jesus?

They and many of you say that you do not have to clean out the leaven from your homes because that was just for the Jews. Or we have Messianics saying that you do not have to clean out the leaven because that was symbolic of the cleaning of your mind.

Then we have the Jews themselves who go by the Hillel Calendar created in 352 C.E. and instituted by Rambam in the 12th Century. To this calendar, over time they have added the Metonic cycles created a Greek named Meton of Athens and incorporated by Hillel.

The depiction of the 19 years of the Metonic cycle as a wheel, with the Julian date of the Easter New Moon,

from a 9th-century computistic manuscript made in St. Emmeram’s Abbey (Clm 14456, fol. 71r)

The Jews also over time brought in the use of Postponement rules that moved the Fall Holy Days by one, two or three days so that you would not have a Feast day next to the weekly Sabbath. And I have read in the past year or so that they will begin to use this same postponement rule for Passover.

And the most recent invention are those people who desire to be very different. The Lunar Sabbath people or the Enoch calendar people changing the Sabbath or the Holy Day season outright.

Daniel 7:19-25 “Then I desired to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the rest, exceedingly terrifying, with its teeth of iron and claws of bronze, and which devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet, and about the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn that came up and before which three of them fell, the horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things, and that seemed greater than its companions. As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them, until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given for the saints of the Most High, and the time came when the saints possessed the kingdom.
“Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast,
there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth,
which shall be different from all the kingdoms,
and it shall devour the whole earth,
and trample it down, and break it to pieces.
As for the ten horns,
out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise,
and another shall arise after them;
he shall be different from the former ones,
and shall put down three kings.
He shall speak words against the Most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
and shall think to change the times and the law;
and they shall be given into his hand
for a time, times, and half a time.

We are not yet at this stage of the 4th beast. But all the signs are there to it charging out of the gate very soon and very unexpectedly by most of the world. But the saints are going to be in his control for 3 1/2 years and if you do not know how to figure out when each Holy Day is, or what the signs are that you are to use in order to follow Yehovah’s lead, then you will be deceived and killed.

I have asked this many times and do so now again.

If the keeping of the Sabbath and Holy Days is so important and you will be blessed for doing so then, why did Yehovah allow 6 Million Jews to be killed in WW II?

The answer is because they did not keep the Holy Days at the proper time nor did they keep the Sabbatical years. At least not since the Zoar Stones of about 515 CE. or the earthquake in 749 which is our last reference to the Shmita Year.

They were keeping the weekly Sabbath but they postponed the Holy Days in the fall and they stopped keeping the Shmita.

Now let me ask you who believe in Jesus or Yehshua. Do you think that just because you believe that Messiah came and rose from the grave and that you have faith that you are any better than those 6 million Jews that Hitler ordered murdered?

No, you are not. You are going to perish the same as they did unless you repent.

Luke 13:1-9 There were some present at that very time who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree
And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

These people who Pilot had killed and those who were killed by the tower were all Jews who were keeping the Sabbath and Holy Days and they also kept the Sabbatical years at this time. And yet Yehshua said to the Apostles that unless the Apostles themselves repented they too would perish. Then right after that Yehshua talks about the barren fig tree. And this is explained in Luke 3.

Luke 3:7-9 He said therefore to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.”

It says good fruit. Are you producing good fruit or is it bad fruit or the type that is of no use?

Romans 2:12-13 For all who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified.

I guess the law is not done away. You must be a doer of the law in order to be justified. A doer, which mean you better know the law in order to do it. Those who claim to be saved by grace and it alone are deceiving themselves. Your faith will not save you and does not give you a get out of jail card or a go directly to heaven card.

James 2:14-26 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.

You must repent from not doing the law. From not caring for others.


‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

Mathew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

Those who do not keep the law are told to leave. They do not and did not obey the Torah so they are thrown out first.

In the Parable of the Ten Virgins, we are told about those who do obey the law but did not prepare to keep the law.

Matthew 25:7-13 Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was shut. Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

I liken these who are told ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ those who keep the Torah but do so according to their own false teachings. They keep the Sabbath at a different time or the Holy Days like the Jews by postponing them or they use the Enoch calendar or some other version of it.

Then we have the parable of the wedding in Mathew 22. But this one guest would not wear the white robes and was kicked out.

Mat 22:8-10 Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.’ And those servants went out into the roads and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests.

I liken this person to those who adopt the Holy Days of the Torah and add them to their former beliefs but do not change. They collect all teachings in the hopes that one of them will get them in. But they do not do the work to prove which one is true and which one is false.

Our web site since the founding of it in 2005 has had the motto of ‘Prove all things.’

1 Thes 5:19-22 Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.

Prove it and test it and then once you have done so, hold on to it and do not then go looking for evil false teachings to satisfy your itching ears.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

You say you believe in the Sabbath but you have no problem shopping on the Sabbath or going to work on it. You do not keep it Holy.

You say you believe in Passover but you mix it with Easter and Good Friday.

You say your Torah observant but you have not proven what calendar to follow or you just keep the Hillel calendar because it is easy and all your friends do.

You like the facts about the Sabbatical year but instead of keeping it you say it is for those in the land only so that you do not have to do it.

‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

“How do you Love Yehovah?”

 John 14:15-17 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

We showed you earlier about the Fruit of the Fig tree. Again listen to Yehshua as He explains this from the point of view of the Vine.

John 15:1-11 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine dresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

Those teaching you to keep the Holy Days using systems not found in the bible are causing you to try and bear your own fruit by your own methods. You are not abiding in the true vine of Yehshua. You will be thrown away or told I never knew you, you workers of lawlessness. You workers of Satan who do not keep the law. Yes, Satan is going to keep the Feasts this year and he wants you all to join him keeping them according to his own schedule and not Yehovah’s.

1 John 5:2-3 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.

How do you love Yehovah? By keeping the commandments. When He says to be here at this time then you are there at that precise time and not one, two or three days later.This year is the year you’re going to get it right!!!

This year you’re going to keep each of the Holy Days at the proper time and learn about them and prove them to be at that time. You are going to do the calculations and know how to do it and be able to teach others all based on the Torah.

Many use the calendar to lead you away from the truth shown you by keeping the Holy Days. Now prove each aspect of it so that you know. Do not be led astray any longer. Time is almost up.

Is there such a thing as the 13th month? We have shown you the facts in this article. Where is the 13th month found in the bible? Go and study it.

Why do we need Barley? Where is this found in the bible? Go to our library and look under Wave Sheaf Day. This is such a huge number of teachings to understand.

What about de-leavening our homes some say we do not have to do this. Again go to our Library under Passover and look up those articles about this very thing.


When is the Passover Meal eaten the 14th or the 15th? Again we have these articles in our Library under Passover. Here is one article about this very subject.

When is Passover? The 13th or 14th or 15th. Here is another one.  Which day is the Passover meal on. Understanding the Chronology.

We have this year shared with you the fast of the First Born and that that was the event Yehshua was doing when he ate with the Apostles the night before He was killed. Yehovah & The Fast of the First Born, The Pidyon Ha’bon

What about the calendar? Is it the Hebrew Calculated one created by Hillel in 352 CE? Is it the one that uses the Crescent moon to begin the month? How do you prove it? Not arguing over it. But how do you prove it from the scriptures?

If you use our search engine to look up a subject or this subject you get all these articles on our page. But my all-time favourite one is the one I wrote to begin this website back in 2005.

Conjunction or Sighted Which? And then with this, you have to read about The Return of Yahshua. This is how to prove it and know whether or not we are to use the Hebrew or crescent moon calendars to keep the Holy Days.

And if you can’t find the subject write me and I will see what I can dig up. I have proven these things beyond all doubts. I have shared these things with you so that you can do the same things and prove them. Not to follow me.

I want to be one of those who welcomed at the wedding Feast and not thrown out. I want to be in His Kingdom and already keeping the laws of the Kingdom before it is set up. I want to know Yehovah and it is by keeping the Holy Days at the right time and by keeping the Sabbatical years at the right time that you are showing Him you love Him. We just read that in 1 John.

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.

 We put on those white Robes of righteousness by keeping the commandments and not compromising them or adding to them or doing them when it is convenient.
Psalm 119:160 The sum of your word is truth,
and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
:142 Your righteousness is righteous forever,
and your law is true.
:172 My tongue will sing of your word,
for all your commandments are righteousness.

    Greetings Joseph,
    You wrote: “Those teaching you to keep the Holy Days using systems not found in the bible are causing you to try and bear your own fruit by your own methods.”
    This then is judged on what system does the Bible teach. I explained the 3 things Yahweh set out in His word to determine the moa’dim in the comments section of your March 1 newsletter.
    If my so called “system” is Biblical and yours is not, will you “be thrown away or told I never knew you, you workers of lawlessness. You workers of Satan.” That might be a bit harsh to be telling people don’t you think.
    You wrote: “Why do we need Barley? Where is this found in the bible?”
    The question is not “do we need the barley.” Of course we use the barley every year. The question is, where in the Bible is the barley added to the sun, moon and stars as things given by Yah to determine the moa’dim?
    Maybe you can help me understand a point you made about the crescent/conjunction debate. You wrote: “The ones that are chosen are taken while their fellow workers are left behind, how can this be a Feast day if they are still working. If it was a conjuncture moon it would have been predicted in advance and on a day or two before. But, because it is a sighted visible crescent moon that marks the beginning of the first day of the new month. The seventh month, Tishri 1. The Feast of Trumpets, because it is sighted and not known for sure whether it is today or tomorrow, that the Feast begins. That is why the brethren are still working along side those that won’t be keeping the Holy days at the right time or in the right month.”
    This seems to indicate those sighting the crescent are working on a feast day because they don’t know it’s a feast day. Would they not see the crescent and stop working? Because they don’t know “whether it is today or tomorrow” would they just go on working anyway?
    One last thing if I may without wearing out my welcome. You wrote: “But Yahshua said we would not know which day was the Feast. With a calculated conjunctured Moon you do know what day the Feast is and in effect are calling Yahshua a liar.”
    Yahshua did not say that.
    Mr 13:32 But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
    If what you wrote was correct then Yahshua and the host of angles would not know the Feast day. Is Yahshua and the angles from their place in heaven looking for the crescent? Do they not know when the feast days are? Are they using Yahweh’s “system” or one of our man-made “systems”?
    Shalom to all.

      It is not harsh to warn people of the errors of their ways. That is what I am doing and you still refuse to change.
      The barley is a direct result of the Sun warming the earth and making it grow.
      Yehshua said no man knows the day or the hour of His coming. The Feast of Trumpets is all about the day He comes. It is a Feast that comes at a day and an hour no man knows because it comes on the 1st day of the 7th Month. The 1st day is determined by the moon being sighted. So because it can be sighted at the end of the 29th day of the previous month to start the New month or if not sighted then a 30th day is declared. It is this variability that shows us that no man can know the day or the hour until the moon is actually sighted. This proves which method you are to use to start the month. Why do you fight Yehovah?

    Good Newsletter Joseph , AS USUAL. Thank You for your time and study .
    Dave Smith … about the Barley being in the BIBLE… the term AVIV is a term STRICTLY associated with the BARLEY grass. ITs an adjective DESCRIBING the ripeness of a BArley seed . It is VERY SPECIFIC. When the scripture says “determine the month of the AVIV” it means make a decision as to when the Barley will be ripe enough to make bread FOR THE WAVE SHEAF offering during Unleavened Bread FEAST. There is no other word used to make that communicated to the reader. It is very specific. It cannot be used for refering to wheat or grapes or pumpkins because it is the CROP that is referred in the word AViv that is the ONLY crop that comes first thing in the spring that COULD mark the 1st month of the year.. I hope that clears it up for you .

    Greetings Joe,
    There is no point in saying I refuse to change, I’m fighting Yah or you refuse to change, you’re fighting Yah. We disagree, we see things differently and you have said you have learned and changed in the past as have I. My ignorance or your ignorance doesn’t necessarily make either of us hell bound or evil, just makes us wrong.
    You wrote: “The barley is a direct result of the Sun warming the earth and making it grow.” Is that a quote from Captain Obvious or are you trying to link the barley to one of the 3 things Yah gave us to determine the moa’dim?
    You never answered my question.
    This seems to indicate those sighting the crescent are working on a feast day because they don’t know it’s a feast day. Would they not see the crescent and stop working? Because they don’t know “whether it is today or tomorrow” would they just go on working anyway?
    Also the question about Yahshua and the angels looking down from heaven also do not know the day of the Feast of Trumpets, according to you, because they apparently can’t see the crescent. Sorry, but to me that ridiculously.
    Glenn Caron: There is no scripture that says “determine the month of the AVIV.”
    De 16:1 Observe (shamar) the month of Abib, and keep the Passover
    shamar – to keep, guard, observe, give heed.
    Ex 34:18 The Feast of Unleavened Bread you shall keep. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, in THE APPOINTED TIME (moa’dim) of the month of Abib; for in the month of Abib you came out from Egypt.
    By the way, the word aviv is a noun not an adjective (check out Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Hebrew Dictionary) except for Ex 9:31.
    Shalom to all,
    David Smith
