Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,
We are in the process of switching from one account to another based on our own web site. James has been working away on this for the past couple months and we are now about to begin the process of switching things over one step at a time. It could take a month to complete and there will be some hiccups along the way. I ask that you bear with us as we work out the bugs.
This means that once we make the switch there will be automatic emails that go out. This is meant to go to new people who sign up for the Newsletter in order to introduce them to all our products. Yes this means you will also get them even though you got them before on the old system. Sorry. Please bear with us and pray we can make it all work so that as more people join us they can learn where to start.
Many of the things you take for granted involve a great deal of work on James and my part to make them work seamlessly. Hours and hours of teaching videos to learn how to do these things. All of this on top of our normal editing and writing of the book. We have also produced a new power point for our tour of the Philippines. And I hope we can record it at some point and share it with all of you.
Again I am asking for your patience as we work through this change over during the next month which I will be doing while on tour.

We just got back on this week and we look forward to stirring things up once again.
Just discovered Emails
Just Discovered Emails-over 500 of them
Last weekend, James called me, very earnestly. It is the voice I have heard before when some sort of disaster has struck our web site and he did not know how to fix it. But that was not the problem this time. I braced myself for what ever he was about to say, Then he said:
Do you remember asking where all the emails were going from the funnels? I said yes and that we were told there were none. So I stopped worrying about them. James said well they lied to us. James just found them by chance and there were over 500 emails from the brethren going back over a year.
I was dumbfounded. I have tried to answer all the emails addressed to sightedmoon personally. 500 emails I had not replied to. I was stunned. So if you have written to or replied back to this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) telling you the newsletter is ready then I may not have gotten it. My email is (email@example.com) I have now gone through these 500 and responded to those that needed to be responded to. I apologize for not discovering this sooner.
Here is one person who wrote April 7, 2023.
Shabbat shalom Brother Joseph.
Wow that’s such a loaded question. You know I got converted back in the early ’80s to Christianity. Graduated 4-year Bible College. But honestly brother I feel it was all wasted time. I began listening to Michael Rood. And how he preached about the Torah. I used to believe in the eternal security of the believer. The whole Grace thing blown out of proportion. And then I’ve listened to you. I honestly believe that my previous faith was worth nothing. That I was just deceived. I totally believe with all my heart that keeping pure Torah is the way to know our father. I don’t have it all figured out. I am keeping the Sabbath every Saturday. And every High holiday. I know that we are presently on the Feast of unleavened bread. I want to keep all his Feast holidays. I am trying to learn how. As best I can from his word. I believe with all my heart that most of Christianity will probably be lost. I do believe that only those that keep his Torah out of love for him. And not out of just keeping it because it is a set of rules. I believe these are the people whom he loves and whom he’s called. I feel like a baby. I see what needs to be done but I’m not really sure how to do it. I’m talking about keeping the feasts and such. I know this week I kept Passover exactly as it was first given an exodus. I had my sandals on my feet and my staff in my head and I roasted a little bit of lamp on a fire. Of course I did not sacrifice a Little Lamb. Because I am not sure if that’s what we are supposed to do. But if I knew that it was I was surely have done it. I know this is the week of unleavened bread. And we’re supposed to eat unleavened bread for 7 days. And I plan to do that and I am doing that. But I’m a little bit confused. Because I am uncertain if unleavened bread is the only thing that I am supposed to be eating. Or if it’s okay to eat other food also. As long as I am daily eating unleavened bread. And I read where it says that during these seven days we should make a fire unto him. I’m imagining this is baking unleavened bread. And offering by fire. But I’m not sure. I’ve recently purchased all of your books. God has blessed you. And I honestly believe that you are his mouthpiece. I feel like a sponge. I want to learn all that I can. I have a lot of friends and family and people whom I believe will be lost. I want so badly in my heart to know his word. And how to keep his Torah. So that I might teach them so that they could find Salvation also. It is with tears in my eyes right now and on my cheeks that I write this to you. I guess I don’t know what else to say Brother Joseph. I want to say that I know him. I’m trying that’s all I know. Sincerely Jeff
Joseph,I have been following the Christ from a Hebraic perspective for a bit more than 20 years, but was brought up in a Baptist church. We currently attend two Christ-following congregations: one is the Baptist church I was born into and returned to after a 40 year hiatus, the other is a Sabbath-keeping congregation that aspires Torah-observance. At the Baptist church, I consider myself something of a missionary as I attempt to reveal the Pentateuch: the Hebraic perspective to the conventional church. The pastor and I were boys together and we are now in our 60s. Thus far, he ‘just can’t see it’, but asked sincerely that I pray for him. Please join me as I do so!My goal is to find out what GOD’S doctrine is, as opposed, perhaps, to what we’ve been taught. In order to accomplish this, I read Scripture with Strong’s and its dictionaries alongside. Having been fed – and fed myself from the wrong source for so many years prior to the Hebraic perspective, I’ve become untrusting of books that provide the RIGHT education – they ALL claim that!I don’t know why it became important that I tell you these things, but well, there it is!Take care, Brother,Bruce Graham
For months just like you Joe you tried to get someone who owed u money to pay u, me too since july ive been trying to get paid $1,300 plus years worth of house keeping. total of 2,600. I am a broke person. hardest thing for me evr to have to do as it was so desperately needed. but i just released him from his debt to me. a rich man, being allowed not to pay me.months of pure pain. that certainly was hard, all i can say is i hope Yah blesses me for obeying Him. radiator went out in my van,3 days ago, was able to pay off the fridgerator. Thank you and everyone who obeyed Yah .Im not considered a widow, even thoe we were close to beig remarried, but i am disabled and have tried hard to better my life, i can only pray Father heals my body or takes me HOME. i was stuck out in the wilderness without access to eternet the past 3 days my dad helped me pay for my van repair that i couldnt cover, and the rest of my thanks is to all you who helped me this past yr. please thank all who obey Yah and helped the widows and orphans and me the disabled. . . wondering if thats why my blood pressure dropped to hypotension all night passover night. i thought i was dying, i called my daughter to tell her i loved her, the next day my bp was still fluctuating but im back to al most normal. they think i had a blood clot and took the aspirin in time to thin it out.

Much love,
Psalm 28:7Yahuah is my strength and my shield.
My heart trusts in Him, and I was helped.
Therefore my heart leaps for joy,
and I will praise Him with my song
Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I’ve been studying your charts and watching as many of your videos as possible. Randy just announced approximately 35 minutes ago Yehovah has given us Abib Barley. I’m so excited. The Sabbatical year has begun and Passover is here. I’m hustling to get everything ready for Passover. I’m just a little concerned that I’m not completely ready for this Sabbatical Year food wise. But Yehovah is faithful and I’m going g to trust in him. Thank you so much again Brother Joseph for all you do for Yehovah and your Brethern. I am so thankful that you did not close up shop in 2020. Thank you Brother.
Its hard for me to express into words why I will keep the Land Sabbath, only its within my whole being to keep it. He is my life, my being. My whole life depends on Him. There is no where else to go. To see some of the brethren means so much to me. I love you all. Phyllis
The Shmita Year of 2023
We are now in our 3rd month of the Sabbatical year. How does it feel? Excited? You are now almost 1/4 way through the Sabbatical year. You are allowed to eat some of the food you have stored away. LOL. I know looking at it each day wondering if it was enough still plays on your mind. So eat some of it and let the Sabbatical year be a blessing to you and your family.
Brethren find a way to obey. Stop finding excuses why you can’t do this or that.
If you just discovered this was the Shmita year, then stock up now for the remainder of the year. Don’t plant or harvest this year. Obey Yehovah.
The Shmita Year of 2023
Aviv 1 on February 21/22, 2023 began the 7th Year of Rest. You can prove this by understanding that 2 King 19:29 spoke about a 49th and 50th-year land rest. Knowing this was 701 and 700 BC, you can then count by 7 or 49 and land on every Sabbatical year or every Jubilee in history. All of our proof’s line up with this understanding.
We want to encourage you to watch and share this video of our teaching at GLC about the Sabbatical Year.
In this Sabbatical year, you are:
- Not to Plant
- Not to Harvest
- Stock up on Food in the 6th year
- Forgive Debts
- Read the Torah Out Loud on the 1st day of Sukkot.
These are the basic rules that you are to keep in order to be blessed by Yehovah. As of this writing, it is not too late to stock up for the year.
There are 365 days in the year. Let’s just say there are 400 days, in case there is an Adar Bet next year. You can buy 400 Cans of Soup to have one meal of soup each day during the year. One can of soup costs about $2, so for $800 you have a year’s supply of soup. But if you are not going to eat soup every day then take out half and buy canned beans, vegetables and fruits.
You can do this. Do not say you can’t do this. Find the will to find a way to get this done. Find excuses as to why you will obey. We are coming into the 5th curse over the next 7 years. That curse is famine and it will be so bad that people will eat their own children. So stock up on food now so you can obey Yehovah. And extra food will be a welcome blessing later.
Brethren, this is not that hard to do. What it takes is the willpower to do it: that and a little planning. You can buy meat throughout the year. It is not a ban on meat. You can also eat anything that grows of itself during the year. But do not plan on living off of those things that come from the ground. It they fail then you have no food. Stock up now, and if something grows, they are a bonus, but they are also free game for the neighbours and the animals. So they might eat it before you do. Plan ahead and stock up now. You still have time to get it done.
I received this email this week and want to share it and answer it with you all.
Message: Hello Joseph
I was wondering – are we allowed to still buy “old stock” from the store up to 22 Feb 2023? Most products have Production dates and Sell by dates on them. I am staying away from fresh vegetables and fruit but if I can see on a canned item or on frozen vegetables that the Production date in well outside of the beginning of the Shmita year, I am allowed to buy it?
As you might know, we (South Africa) are sometimes without power for up to 8 hours, sometimes more, a day. I therefore did not invest in an extra freezer or fridge for we are expecting the collapse of the grid any day and all those frozen things will have to be thrown away. I have stocked up for the Shmita year, but still have this impression on my spirit that I have to keep doing it for as long as I can – especially canned goods.
Personally I do not see why I can’t, because it is old stock. Nowhere do I read in the Torah that you are not allowed to buy the old stock in the Shmita year (provided of course that you can find a Production date on the can/container that is well outside the beginning of our Shmita year. But, my understanding of it may be wrong, so I would really appreciate your input.
As I always do here is my standard answer as to what you are to do during the Sabbatical year.
- Not to Plant
- Not to Harvest
- Stock up on Food in the 6th year
- Forgive Debts
- Read the Torah Out Loud on the 1st day of Sukkot.
Each person is different. Each person has a different culture they live in. Some do not have electric power. Some are called and discover this information and the sabbatical year has already begun. Yehovah has called each of us from the walk we are in. Different races, different problems. But He HAS called you to begin NOW to obey. So, start to obey from that point on with all your might and all your ability. But Start!!!
Joe Dumond Rules
In answer to Melanie, these are now what I do. They are not written in Torah. This would come under Joe Dumond rules, which must be changed when found to be out of alignment with Yehovah’s Laws. Each of you will develop you own rules for you and your family. I might not agree with them but so long as we are all keeping the 5 rules of the Shmita year then do not judge others who are trying to obey. Let Yehovah judge them. Let Yehovah bless them according to what they do right and what they do wrong. But do not let us go around attacking each other, and especially those who are trying.
I have stocked up my food for the upcoming year. Here in Ontario, Canada, I will use Shavuot as another one of my benchmarks. I will explain in a moment.
Here in Ontario, I will continue to buy and eat apples that were grown in Ontario up until about Shavuot 2023. This means any apples marked as product of Ontario would have been grown and harvested in 2022. New Apples will not be available from Ontario until some time in the summer of 2023. So my cut off date will be Shavuot 2023. Potatoes grown here in Canada either from Ontario or Prince Edward Island, the main place potatoes are grown in Canada will not come on the market until about August. Again, I can use last years stocks up until my cut off date of Shavuot 2023.
Here in Ontario, our lettuce and most fresh fruit and vegetables comes from around the world and take about 7 days to go from being picked to the store. So for me, as of Passover 2023, I will not be eating any fresh greens from the stores. I will eat only what I have already bought before that date which is now passed. Most canned fruits and vegetables are from last years harvest. So canned goods I will continue to stock up on. I believe I will finish this the week after the Days of Unleavened Bread. I know there is no yeast in them, but I have had many problems to resolve with my wife about storing food here in the apartment, which is forcing me to be very precise in all I do.
Now if I am going to use Shavuot as my cut off date for those things grown here in Ontario, then next year when the Sabbatical Year ends at Aviv in 2024, then I also will continue to not eat those things grown in Ontario, until they come into season here locally. For example, I will wait until August before eating Apples again. I will wait until August before I eat new potatoes.
After Aviv 1 in 2024, when fresh strawberries begin to arrive on the store shelves in Ontario I will wait until around the 1st of the second month before I eat them. I am doing this because the shelve life is about a week or two. So if I wait until the 1st of the 2nd month, then those fresh products will have been harvested in 2024 after Aviv, when we can then again harvest. In the past I have waited and to set the date at Shavuot.
Here is an example from the Bible you need to understand and once you do then can decide what to do for yourself. It is upon this understanding that I set the date for myself of Shavuot.
Lev 25:20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our increase!
Lev 25:21 Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
Lev 25:22 And you shall sow the eighth year, and eat of old fruit until the ninth year; until its fruits come in, you shall eat the old fruit.
The Barley was sown around Sukkot in the fall. It is harvested after Passover. In a Sabbatical year you could not harvest the barley in the Sabbatical Year. You would not be able to plant in the Sabbatical year in the fall. This then meant you would not have a barley crop the year after the Sabbatical year at Passover. This is now the 8th year. In the fall around Sukkkot in the 8th year, you could plant but would not be able to harvest until Passover in the 9th year.
What ever the crop or food you are desiring to plant or harvest, in what ever part of the world you you live in, you must plant and harvest according to the Sabbatical Year rules from Aviv to Aviv.
So each person must figure out when Strawberries are planted and harvested according to this understanding. When Potatoes are planted according to this understanding. Our society does not obey Yehovah. So each of us must read the labels and decide if this is kosher or not. To this day, I do not drink any wine harvested in the year 2016 or 2009 both Sabbatical years I have kept.
We all must obey. Do the best you can and pray Yehovah helps you to understand and to be able to obey.
If you want to use aquaponics or soilless planting then you must decide if this is kosher or not. I am not going to come up with an entire Targum or set of Tamudic do’s and don’ts. Read the rules or read Lev 25 and then you decide. You are called to be a King and Priest in the Kingdom of Yehovah. As a King and Preist you must uphold the Law of Yehovah and enforce it. As a King or Priest in the Kingdom, is what you are going to do, upholding those laws? Is what you are going to do pleasing to Yehovah? You must decide. I am not your judge.
Php 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, cultivate your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Php 2:13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
Php 2:14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings,
Php 2:15 so that you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation. Among these you shine as lights in the world,
Php 2:16 holding forth the Word of Life, so that I may rejoice with you in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain nor labored in vain.
Some are asking how to do you travel? When you go to someones home what do you do? YOU can assume that those people are obeying Yehovah and you eat. Or you can pull out your own food from your purse and eat it in front of them. Again I am not your judge. You must decide what to do.
Joshua crossed the Jordan in the 50th year. He did not plant anything the year before or this year. And yet he ate everything they captured from the cities of the Caananites. They did not obey Yehovah. Joshua ate their food.
There is not commandment telling you you cannot eat. I have given you Joe Dumond rules above. They are not Yehovah’s rules. You must decide what you are going to do.

THE SABBATH 101
The Sabbath 101
I have been asked a number of times for the basics of keeping Torah. I have told those asking where to look but still more come and they are overwhelmed by the amount of articles, videos and books to go through. I never set out for it to be like that. But we have been posting a weekly newsletter since 2005. That is about 938 newsletters which have been viewed 9,701,688 times. We have written 8 books selling 5,439 copies as of this week. We have created about 552 videos, which have had 2,778,234 views as of today.
Just looking at these numbers tells me we are doing something right. And at the same time we continue to dive deeper into the things we are teaching. But for the new people it can be over whelming.
I had the great opportunity to visit Batman, Bat-woman and Alfred, and I even stayed in the Bat-cave. Batman has compiled a number of teachings that are geared for the new person and those just starting out in this walk. He also put together three of the books we now offer at Sightedmoon. I want to make all of these available for you to take advantage of, but you can’t tell Batman.
Here is the video section.
Scripture Lessons for the Kingdom is exactly that, short lessons for those new to Torah. We have taken many of the lessons from the website and condensed them down into one to two-page lessons. While these do not cover everything, they will cover the basics and give you a good starting place for your journey into the Word of YHVH. We hope you enjoy this book and look forward to hearing back from you and your stories about this journey.
We also have a third book about the covenant titled I Do. It is an e-book only format.
The servants of the groom are announcing the wedding, but will the bride prepare herself properly to say “I do”? I do is a short book that both teaches and challenges one who has accepted the betrothal to the Lamb to do that which will prepare them for that great day when the groom arrives.
We read through the entire Torah along with the Prophets and the New Testament, once over the course of 3 1/2 years. Or according to the Sabbatical Cycle which means we read it all twice over a 7 year period. This allows us to cover more in-depth rather than being rushed to cover as much as is covered on an annual basis. We allow all to comment and take part in the discussions.
Septennial Torah Portion
If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 7th year which is the 7th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to the proper date, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about:
1 Corinthians 4-5
If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.
Spokesman Club Manual
At our most recent leadership meeting we discussed how it was going in relationship to letting others speak at sightedmoon.com on Shabbat.
We had a wide range of discussions on it. On the whole, meetings are now too long, is the one complaint I am hearing. We still want to do the midrash and the Torah studies.
Some only want to come and have me teach. This puts a lot of pressure on me to prepare a sermon each and every week. My goal here at sightedmoon.com is to teach people the torah and how the Jubilee Cycles along with the Holy days teach you the plan of salvation. Another goal I have is to have people capable of teaching these things to others.
In order to do the second goal we must have a place for people to practice and fail at giving teachings. This is also why we allow and encourage midrashes. So people know how to argue in love about the many and various false teachings they are going to be presented. Iron sharpening Iron.
I have asked Shane Diltz to help me by looking after this aspect of sightedmoon.com. He organizes the speakers and makes sure their subject is kosher.
Many years ago while I was attending the WWCG, they had this program to teach you how to speak. After our meeting I went out and found it on line. I want to encourage you all to go through it and do each step in the speaking program. Practice on your spouse or on your dog or cat. But practice before you come to give your presentation to us. Practice.
Your goal is to teach us the subject on your heart and to do so in 15 Minutes 20 Minutes TOPS. Going forward we will shut you down after so many minutes. We may give you a one minute warning. But we will shut you down. We want you to learn how to pack your presentation in small but powerful punches. We want you to learn. And we are going to allow you to do so at sightedmoon.com.
Please do look over the manual. Prepare your subject according to one of the learning courses and practice. We look forward to your presentation and growth.
Many of the fonts do not transfer over well, so I will give you the link to the manual and you can read it on the original site. https://www.hwalibrary.com/cgi-bin/get/hwa.cgi?action=getacmanuals&InfoID=1397922400&page=&return=bklets
There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on the Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our YouTube channel.
What are we doing and why do we teach this way?
We are going to discuss both sides of an issue and then let you choose. It is the work of the Ruach (Spirit) to direct and to teach you.
The medieval commentator Rashi wrote that the Hebrew word for wrestle (avek) implies that Jacob was “tied”, for the same word is used to describe knotted fringes in a Jewish prayer shawl, the tzitzityot. Rashi says, “thus is the manner of two people who struggle to overthrow each other, that one embraces the other and knots him with his arms”.
Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle. We are Wrestling with Yehovah as we grapple with His Word. It is an intimate act, symbolizing a relationship in which Yehovah and I and you are bound together. My wrestling is a struggle to discover what Yehovah expects of us, and we are “tied” to the One who assists us in that struggle.
Today, many say Israel means “Champion of God”, or better — the “Wrestler of God”.
Our Torah sessions each Shabbat teaches you and encourages you to constantly challenge, question, argue against, as well as view alternative views and explanations of the Word. In other words, we are to “wrestle with the Word” to get to the truth. Jews worldwide believe that you need to wrestle with the Word and constantly challenge Dogma, Theology, and views or else you will never get to the Truth.
We are not like most churches where “The preacher talks and everyone listens.” We encourage everyone to participate, to question and to contribute what they know on the subject being discussed. We want you to be a champion wrestler of the Word of Yehovah. We want you to wear the title of Israel, knowing that you not only know but are capable of explaining why you know the Torah to be true with logic and facts.
We have a few rules though. Let others talk and listen. There is no discussion about UFO’s Nephilim, Vaccines or conspiracy-type subjects. We have people from around the world with different world views. Not everyone cares who is the President of any particular country. Treat each other with respect as Fellow wrestlers of the word. Some of our subjects are hard to understand and require you to be mature and if you do not know, then listen to gain knowledge and understanding and hopefully wisdom. The very things you are commanded to ask Yehovah for and He gives to those who ask.
Jas 1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.
We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.
We start off with some music and then some prayers and it’s as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.
Sabbath services begin at 12:30 PM EDT where we will be doing prayers songs and teaching from this hour.
Shabbat Services will begin at about 1:15 pm Eastern.
On the Holy Day, Shavuot, we will be having two meetings. One at 10 AM Eastern and the afternoon will be 2 PM Eastern. Look forward to seeing you all there.
We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.

Did You Know This?
Did You Know This?
Did you know how much Scripture was used in the Coronation?
King Charles and Queen Camilla have been formally crowned in a ceremony that was watched by millions around the world.
Mark Austin takes a look back over the historic day when the son of Queen Elizabeth II, King Charles, was crowned alongside his wife Queen Camilla.
Among a whole lot of ‘Church of England’ and Charles’ own input to the event there were many things from the Bible that we shouldn’t miss…
13:40 Garter King of Arms, Samuel Strachan “Your Majesty, we, as children of the Kingdom of God, we welcome you in the name of the King of Kings.”
HRH Charles III responds “In His name and in His example I come not to be served but to serve.”
14:55 King Charles was given a Bible. (See Deu 17:18-20 below)
“Sir, to keep you ever mindful of the Law and the Gospel of God, as The Rule, of for the whole life and government of Christian Princes receive this Book the most valuable thing that this world has to offer. Here is wisdom. This is the Royal Law. These are the lively oracles of God.”
14:28 The Oath
In the Oath was the line:
“Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel?”
17:33 Charles spoken oath:
“I Charles do solemnly and sincerely in the presence of God profess, testify, and declare that I am a faithful Protestant, and that I will, according to the true intent of the enactments which secure the Protestant succession to the Throne, uphold and maintain the said enactments to the best of my powers according to law.”
18:02 Two copies of the Oath brought forward. This is the only time the monarch will write and sign a covenant with his people.
18:57 The King kneels before the Altar and says
“God of compassion and mercy whose Son was sent not to be served but to serve, give grace that I may find in thy service perfect freedom and in that freedom knowledge of thy truth. Grant that I may be a blessing to all thy children, of every faith and belief, that together we may discover the ways of gentleness and be led into the paths of peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
20:25 THE ANOINTING
The choir sings the anthem. Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anointed Solomon king. And all the people rejoiced and said: God save the King! Long live the King! May the King live forever! Alleluia! Amen!
Archbishop of Canterbury:
Be your hands anointed with holy oil. Be your breast anointed with holy oil. Be your head anointed with holy oil, as kings, priests, and prophets were anointed. And as Solomon was anointed king by Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet, so may you be anointed, blessed, and consecrated King over the peoples, whom the Lord your God has given you to rule and govern; in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Archbishop of Canterbury:
Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who by his Father was anointed with the Oil of gladness above his fellows, by his holy Anointing pour down upon your Head and Heart the blessing of the Holy Spirit, and prosper the works of your Hands: that by the assistance of his heavenly grace you may govern and preserve the People committed to your charge in wealth, peace, and godliness; and after a long and glorious course of ruling a temporal kingdom wisely, justly, and religiously, you may at last be made partaker of an eternal kingdom, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Presentation of Regalia
Archbishop of Canterbury: Receive these spurs, symbols of honour and courage. May you be a brave advocate for those in need.
Receive this kingly Sword. May it be to you, and to all who witness these things, a sign and symbol not of judgement, but of justice; not of might, but of mercy. Trust always in the word of God, which is the sword of the Spirit, and so faithfully serve our Lord Jesus Christ in this life, that you may reign for ever with him in the life which is to come. Amen.
Archbishop of Canterbury: Receive the Bracelets of sincerity and wisdom, tokens of God’s protection embracing you on every side.
The Robe and Stole Royal
Archbishop of Canterbury: Receive this Robe. May the Lord clothe you with the robe of righteousness, and with the garments of salvation.
Receive this Orb, set under the Cross, and remember always the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ.
Receive this Ring, a symbol of kingly dignity, and a sign of the covenant sworn this day between God and King, King and people.
Receive this glove. May you hold authority with gentleness and grace, trusting not in your own power but in the mercy of God who has chosen you.
The Sceptre and Rod
Receive the Royal Sceptre, the ensign of kingly power and justice; and the Rod of equity and mercy, a symbol of covenant and peace. May the Spirit of the Lord which anointed Jesus at his baptism, so anoint you this day, that you might exercise authority with wisdom, and direct your counsels with grace; that by your service and ministry to all your people, justice and mercy may be seen in all the earth: through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
King of kings and Lord of lords, bless, we beseech thee, this Crown, and so sanctify thy servant Charles upon whose head this day thou dost place it for a sign of royal majesty, that he may be crowned with thy gracious favour and filled with abundant grace and all princely virtues; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, supreme over all things, one God, world without end. Amen.
The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you, and give you his peace.
O Lord, grant the king a long life, that his years may endure throughout all generations. He shall dwell before God for ever. O prepare thy loving mercy and faithfulness, that they may preserve him. So shall we always sing and praise thy
Enthroning The King
Archbishop of Canterbury: Stand firm, and hold fast from henceforth this seat of royal dignity, which is yours by the authority of Almighty God. May that same God, whose throne endures for ever, establish your throne in righteousness, that it may stand fast for evermore.

Laws Concerning Israel’s Kings
Deu 17:14 When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;
Deu 17:15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
Deu 17:16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
Deu 17:17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.
Deu 17:18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:
Deu 17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:
Deu 17:20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
Yehovah Alone Chooses the King
Last week, King Charles the III was crowned in an elaborate coronation ceremony. I got up early to watch it as this is a once in a life time event. The last time this sort of thing took place was 70 years ago when Queen Elizabeth was Crowned Queen in 1953.
All I have been able to watch of that ceremony have been mostly in black and white pictures or some dated videos. So to see this coronation live and in colour was thrilling to say the least. To be there would have been awesome too, but I would not have seen all that I was able to see on T.V.
The thing that disappointed me was the ignorance of many of the brethren who were saying Not my King or they were spreading the false accusations about him being the the anti-christ and showing their complete lack of knowledge of the Bible and a total lack of respect for the office Yehovah created.
I was so disgusted with them, that I felt angry just to be around them and I asked myself, why do I even bother to share anything with these people who appreciate nothing?
So, first of all, let me share with you who created the office of the King.
Israel Demands a King
1Sa 8:1 And it happened when Samuel was old, he made his sons judges over Israel.
1Sa 8:2 And the name of his first-born was Joel, and the name of his second was Abiah, judges in Beer-sheba.
1Sa 8:3 And his sons did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after ill gain and took bribes and perverted judgment.
1Sa 8:4 And all the elders of Israel gathered themselves and came to Samuel to Ramah.
1Sa 8:5 And they said to him, Behold, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
1Sa 8:6 But the thing was evil in the eyes of Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed to Jehovah.
1Sa 8:7 And Jehovah said to Samuel, Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you. For they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.
1Sa 8:8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even until this day, works with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods, so they do also to you.
1Sa 8:9 And now listen to their voice. Only, you shall surely protest solemnly to them, and show them the kind of king who shall reign over them.
Samuel’s Warning Against Kings
1Sa 8:10 And Samuel told all the Words of Jehovah to the people who asked a king of him.
1Sa 8:11 And he said, This will be the privilege of the king who shall reign over you. He shall take your sons and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and his horsemen. And they shall run before his chariots.
1Sa 8:12 And he will appoint commanders over thousands, and commanders over fifties, and some to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and make his weapons of war and weapons for his chariots.
1Sa 8:13 And he will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers.
1Sa 8:14 And he will take your fields and your vineyards and your olive-yards, the best, and give them to his servants.
1Sa 8:15 And he will take the tenth of your seed and of your vineyards, and give it to his eunuchs and to his servants.
1Sa 8:16 And he will take your male slaves and your slave girls, and your finest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
1Sa 8:17 He will take the tenth of your sheep, and you shall be his servants.
1Sa 8:18 And you shall cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and Jehovah will not answer you in that day.
The Lord Grants Israel’s Request
1Sa 8:19 But the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel. And they said, No, but we will have a king over us.
1Sa 8:20 And we shall be, also we, like all the nations, so that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.
1Sa 8:21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he repeated them in the ears of Jehovah.
1Sa 8:22 And Jehovah said to Samuel, Listen to their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said to the men of Israel, Every man go to his city.
The people demanded a King because Samuels’s sons were corrupted. They were not following Yehovah. Yehovah was supposed to be our King. But reluctantly, Yehovah allowed us to have a human being as a King. But it was Yehovah who chose Saul as King. Not any man did this. Yehovah Himself decided who would be King.
Saul Chosen to Be King
1Sa 9:1 And there was a man of Benjamin, and his name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power.
1Sa 9:2 And he had a son named Saul, a young and handsome one. And there was not a man among the sons of Israel more handsome than he, being taller than any of the people from his shoulder and upward.
1Sa 9:3 And the asses of Kish, Saul’s father, were lost. And Kish said to Saul his son, Please take one of the servants with you and rise, and go look for the asses.
1Sa 9:4 And he passed through mount Ephraim, and passed through the land of Shalisha, but they did not find them. And they passed through the land of Shaalim, and nothing there. And he passed through the land of Benjamin, but they did not find them.
1Sa 9:5 And they came to the land of Zuph, and Saul said to his servant who was with him, Come and let us return lest my father quit caring for the asses, and be anxious about us.
1Sa 9:6 And he said to him, Behold now, in this city is a man of God, and an honorable man. All that he says surely comes to pass. Now let us go there. Perhaps he can declare our way to us, how to go.
1Sa 9:7 Then Saul said to his young man, But behold, ifwe go, what shall we bring the man? For the bread in our vessels is gone, and there is no present to bring to the man of God. What do we have?
1Sa 9:8 And the young man answered Saul again, and said, Behold, I have found the fourth of a shekel of silver. I will give it to the man of God to tell us our way.
1Sa 9:9 (In the old days in Israel, when a man went to inquire of God, he said this: Come, let us go to the seer, for the prophet of today was before called a seer.)
1Sa 9:10 And Saul said to his young man, Your word is good. Come, let us go. So they went into the city where the man of God was.
1Sa 9:11 As they went up the hill to the city, they found young women going out to draw water, and said to them, Is the seer here?
1Sa 9:12 And they answered them and said, He is. Behold, he is before you. Hurry now, for he came today to the city, for there is a feast of the people today in the high place.
1Sa 9:13 As you come to the city, you shall immediately find him before he goes up to the high place to eat. For the people will not eat until he comes, because he blesses the feast. Afterwards those who have been invited eat. And now go up, for about this time you shall find him.
1Sa 9:14 And they went up into the city. When they had come into the middle of the city, behold, Samuel came out to meet them, to go up to the high place.
1Sa 9:15 And Jehovah had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying,
1Sa 9:16 Tomorrow about this time I will send you a man out of the land of Benjamin. And you shall anoint him to be leader over My people Israel, so that he may save My people out of the hand of the Philistines. For I have looked on My people because their cry has come to Me.
1Sa 9:17 And when Samuel saw Saul, Jehovah said to him, Behold the man of whom I spoke to you! This one shall reign over My people.
1Sa 9:18 And Saul drew near to Samuel in the gate and said, Please tell me where the seer’s house is.
1Sa 9:19 And Samuel answered Saul and said, I am the seer. Go up before me to the high place. For you shall eat with me today, and tomorrow I will let you go, and will tell you all that is in your heart.
1Sa 9:20 And as to the asses which were lost to you three days ago, do not set your mind on them. For they are found. And on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on you and on all your father’s house?
1Sa 9:21 And Saul answered and said, Am I not a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? And is not my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? Why then do you speak so to me?
1Sa 9:22 And Samuel took Saul and his young man and brought them into the room, and gave them a place at the head of the invited ones, about thirty persons.
1Sa 9:23 And Samuel said to the cook, Bring that part which I gave you, of which I said to you, Set it beside you.
1Sa 9:24 And the cook took up the shoulder and that on it, and set it before Saul. And Samuel said, Behold that which is reserved! Set it before you and eat. For until this set time it has been kept for you, since I said, I have invited the people. And Saul ate with Samuel that day.
1Sa 9:25 And they came down from the high place into the city, and he spoke with Saul on the top of the house.
1Sa 9:26 And they arose early. And it happened about the spring of the day that Samuel called Saul to the top of the house, saying, Up, so that I may send you away. And Saul arose, and both of them went out, he and Samuel outside.
1Sa 9:27 They were going down to the end of the city, and Samuel said to Saul, Tell the servant to pass on before us and pass on. And you stand still awhile, so that I may cause you to hear the Word of God.
Saul Anointed King
1Sa 10:1 And Samuel took a vial of oil and poured on his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because Jehovah has anointed you for a leader over His inheritance?
1Sa 10:2 When you have departed from me today, then you shall find two men by Rachel’s tomb in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah. And they will say to you, The asses which you went to seek are found. And, lo, your father has quit caring for the asses and sorrows for you, saying, What shall I do for my son?
1Sa 10:3 And you shall go forward from there, and you shall come to the great tree of Tabor. And there you shall meet three men going up to God to Bethel, one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a skin of wine.
1Sa 10:4 And they will greet you and give you two loavesof bread, which you shall take from their hand.
1Sa 10:5 After that you shall come to the hill of God, where the garrison of the Philistines is. And it will happen to you when you come there to the city, even you shall meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a harp and a tambourine and a flute and a lyre before them. And they shall prophesy.
1Sa 10:6 And the spirit of Jehovah will come powerfully on you, and you shall prophesy with them, and shall be turned into another man.
1Sa 10:7 And it will be when these signs have come to you, you will do for yourself what your hand finds; for God is with you.
1Sa 10:8 And you shall go down before me to Gilgal. And, behold, I will come down to you to offer burnt offerings and to sacrifice peace offerings. You shall stay seven days until I come to you and make known to you what you shall do.
1Sa 10:9 And it happened when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, God changed him with another heart. And all those signs came on that day.
1Sa 10:10 And they came there to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him. And the Spirit of God came on him, and he prophesied among them.
1Sa 10:11 And it happened when all who knew him before saw him, behold, he prophesied among the prophets. And the people said to one another, What isthis that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?
1Sa 10:12 And a man from there answered and said, And who is their father? Therefore it became a proverb, IsSaul also among the prophets?
1Sa 10:13 And he finished from prophesying, and he came to the high place.
1Sa 10:14 And Saul’s uncle said to him and to his young man, Where did you go? And he said, To look for the asses. And when we saw that they were nowhere, we came to Samuel.
1Sa 10:15 And Saul’s uncle said, Please tell me, what Samuel said to you.
1Sa 10:16 And Saul said to his uncle, He told us plainly that the asses were found. But he did not tell him of the matter of the kingdom of which Samuel spoke.
Saul Proclaimed King
1Sa 10:17 And Samuel called the people together to Jehovah to Mizpeh.
1Sa 10:18 And he said to the sons of Israel, So says Jehovah, the God of Israel, I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all kingdoms, of those who oppressed you.
1Sa 10:19 And you have this day rejected your God who Himself saved you out of all your calamities and your tribulations. And you have said to Him, But set a king over us. And now present yourselves before Jehovah by your tribes and by your thousands.
1Sa 10:20 And when Samuel had caused all the tribes of Israel to come near, the tribe of Benjamin was taken.
1Sa 10:21 When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their families, the family of Matri was taken, and Saul the son of Kish was taken. And they looked for him, but he could not be found.
1Sa 10:22 And they inquired of Jehovah further, Has the man yet come here? And Jehovah answered, Behold, he is hiding himself among the baggage.
1Sa 10:23 And they ran and brought him from there. And when he stood among the people, he was taller than all of the people from the shoulders and upward.
1Sa 10:24 And Samuel said to all the people, Do you see him whom Jehovah has chosen, that there is none like him among all the people? And all the people shouted, and said, Let the king live!
1Sa 10:25 Then Samuel told the people the duties of the kingdom, and wrote in a book and laid it up before Jehovah. And Samuel sent all the people away, each to his house.
1Sa 10:26 And Saul also went home to Gibeah. And a band of men went with him, whose hearts God had touched.
1Sa 10:27 But the sons of Belial said, How shall this man save us? And they despised him and brought him no present. But he was silent.
Do you see that Yehovah chose Saul? Do you see how He did it these two times? He told Saul things that would happen to him and they all happened that same day. Then He again showed all the people how He chose Saul by telling them he was hiding in the baggage.
Notice that some of the people rejected Saul as their King. They were called Belial.
Here is what that means:
H1100 (Brown-Driver-Briggs) בּליּעל belı̂ya‛al
1a) worthless, good for nothing, unprofitable, base fellow
1c) ruin, destruction (construct)
It was only by the mercy of Saul that those who were labeled as Belial, were spared. How many of you are Belial?
Saul Defeats the Ammonites
1Sa 11:1 And Nahash the Ammonite came up and camped against Jabesh-gilead. And all the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, Make a covenant with us, and we will serve you.
1Sa 11:2 And Nahash the Ammonite answered them, With this I will make a covenant with you, when all your right eyes are dug out and I will make it a reproach on all Israel.
1Sa 11:3 And the elders of Jabesh said to him, Bear with us seven days, so that we may send messengers to all the territory of Israel. And then if there is no man to save us, we will come out to you.
1Sa 11:4 Then the messengers came to Gibeah of Saul, and told the news in ears of the people. And all the people lifted up their voices and wept.
1Sa 11:5 And, behold, Saul came after the herd out of the field. And Saul said, What is wrong with the people that they weep? And they told him the words of the men of Jabesh.
1Sa 11:6 And the Spirit of God came powerfully on Saul when he heard those words, and his anger was kindled greatly.
1Sa 11:7 And he took a yoke of oxen and cut them in pieces, and sent throughout all the territory of Israel by the hands of messengers, saying, Whoever does not come out after Saul and after Samuel, so shall it be done to his oxen. And the fear of Jehovah fell on the people, and they came out as one man.
1Sa 11:8 And when he numbered them in Bezek, the sons of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand.
1Sa 11:9 And they said to the messengers that came, So shall you say to the men of Jabesh-gilead, Tomorrow by the time the sun is hot, you shall have help. And the messengers came and told the men of Jabesh, and they were glad.
1Sa 11:10 And the men of Jabesh said, Tomorrow we will come out to you, and you shall do with us all that seems good to you.
1Sa 11:11 And it was so on the next day, Saul put the people in three companies, and they came into the middle of the army at the morning watch. And they killed the Ammonites until the heat of the day. And the ones who remained were scattered, so that two of them were not left together.
The Kingdom Is Renewed
1Sa 11:12 And the people said to Samuel, Who is he that said, Shall Saul reign over us? Bring the men so that we may put them to death.
1Sa 11:13 And Saul said, There shall not a man be put to death this day, for today Jehovah has worked salvation in Israel.
1Sa 11:14 Then Samuel said to the people, Come and let us go to Gilgal and renew the kingdom there.
1Sa 11:15 And all the people went to Gilgal, and made Saul king before Jehovah in Gilgal, and there they sacrificed sacrifices of peace offerings before Jehovah. And there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.
So Yehovah chose Saul to be King over the people. He was to the people, Yehovah’s representative here on earth. And who amongst you today in 2023, rejects the King Yehovah has set over the people of Israel?
Do you not know that all the kings and queens of Europe are descendants of this same line and related to the King of England? When they assume the office of the King of their nation, they are sworn in.
But only the British Royal House has an elaborate coronation. Only here, and do you know why? Because they are the King of Kings, the King of all the kings here on earth. They are the highest ranking authority here on earth, and they are subject to the Creator of the Universe. Yes, they bow before the Bible and swear to uphold the Bible and its laws. If you watched the coronation, you would have seen a number of times the King acknowledging God, Yehovah, as supreme.
Right there in 1 Samuel 10:24 is the expression that we still say to this very day. Long live the King!
Yes, Saul would go on to be found not worthy of the office of King and Yehovah would take it away from him. Yehovah would deal with Saul, not those who did not like him as their King. Yehovah and Yehovah alone dealt with His kings.
The Lord Rejects Saul
1Sa 15:1 And Samuel said to Saul, Jehovah sent me to anoint you to be king over His people, over Israel. And now listen to the voice of the words of Jehovah.
1Sa 15:2 So says Jehovah of Hosts, I will visit Amalek with what he did to Israel, how he set against him in the way when he came up from Egypt.
1Sa 15:3 Now go and strike Amalek, and completely destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
1Sa 15:4 And Saul gathered the people together and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen and ten thousand men of Judah.
1Sa 15:5 And Saul came to a city of Amalek and lay in wait in the valley.
1Sa 15:6 And Saul said to the Kenites, Go! Depart! Get down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them. For you showed kindness to all the sons of Israel when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
1Sa 15:7 And Saul struck the Amalekites from Havilah, as you come to Shur, which is over across from Egypt.
1Sa 15:8 And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive. And he completely destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.
1Sa 15:9 But Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep and of the oxen and of the fatlings and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not completely destroy them. But everything that was vile and feeble they completely destroyed.
1Sa 15:10 And the Word of Jehovah came to Samuel saying,
1Sa 15:11 It repents Me that I have set up Saul to beking. For he has turned back from following Me and has not done My commands. And it grieved Samuel, and he cried out to Jehovah all night.
1Sa 15:12 And when Samuel rose up early in the morning to meet Saul, it was told to Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and behold, he set up a place for himself, and has gone around and passed on and gone down to Gilgal.
1Sa 15:13 And Samuel came to Saul. And Saul said to him, You are blessed of Jehovah. I have done the command of Jehovah.
1Sa 15:14 And Samuel said, What then is this bleating of the flock in my ears? And what is the sound of the herd which I hear?
1Sa 15:15 And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites. For the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen to sacrifice to Jehovah your God. And the rest we have completely destroyed.
1Sa 15:16 And Samuel said to Saul, Stop! And I will tell you what Jehovah has said to me tonight. And he said to him, Speak.
1Sa 15:17 And Samuel said, When you were little in your own sight, did you not become the head of the tribes of Israel? And Jehovah anointed you king over Israel.
1Sa 15:18 And Jehovah sent you on the way and said, Go and completely destroy the sinners, Amalek, and fight against them until you destroy them.
1Sa 15:19 Why then did you not obey the voice of Jehovah? Why did you fly on the spoil and do evil in the sight of Jehovah?
1Sa 15:20 And Saul said to Samuel, Yes, I have obeyed the voice of Jehovah, and have gone the way which Jehovah sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have completely destroyed the Amalekites.
1Sa 15:21 But the people took from the spoil, of the flocks and herd, the best of the things devoted to sacrifice to Jehovah your God in Gilgal.
1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Does Jehovah delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of Jehovah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice! To listen is better than the fat of rams!
1Sa 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idol-worship. Because you have rejected the Word of Jehovah, He has also rejected you from being king!
1Sa 15:24 And Saul said to Samuel, I have sinned. For I have disobeyed the command of Jehovah, and your word, because I feared the people and obeyed their voice.
1Sa 15:25 And now please pardon my sin and turn again with me so that I may worship Jehovah.
1Sa 15:26 And Samuel said to Saul, I will not return with you, for you have rejected the Word of Jehovah, and Jehovah has rejected you from being king over Israel.
1Sa 15:27 And Samuel turned around to go, and he laid hold on the skirt of his robe, and it tore.
1Sa 15:28 And Samuel said to him, Jehovah has torn the kingdom of Israel from you this day, and has given it to a neighbor of yours who is better than you.
1Sa 15:29 And also the Glory of Israel will not lie nor repent, for He is not a man that He should repent.
1Sa 15:30 Then he said, I have sinned. Please honor me now before the elders of my people and before Israel, and turn again with me. And I shall worship Jehovah your God.
1Sa 15:31 And Samuel turned again after Saul, and Saul worshiped Jehovah.
1Sa 15:32 And Samuel said, Bring here to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came to him daintily. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past.
1Sa 15:33 And Samuel said, As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women. And Samuel cut Agag in pieces before Jehovah in Gilgal.
1Sa 15:34 And Samuel went to Ramah. And Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.
1Sa 15:35 And Samuel never again saw Saul until the day of his death, for Samuel mourned for Saul. And Jehovah repented that He had made Saul king over Israel.
After Yehovah had rejected the King, which Yehovah had chosen, Yehovah then chose another King in his place. Do not forget that it is Yehovah each time who chose the King. Not one person did. In fact, those who rejected Yehovah’s choice were called Belial. Again, am I describing you when I say this?
Now read how Yehovah chose the next King.
David Anointed King
1Sa 16:1 And Jehovah said to Samuel, How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and go. I will send you to Jesse of Bethlehem. For I have seen a king for Me among his sons.
1Sa 16:2 And Samuel said, How can I go? If Saul hears, he will kill me. And Jehovah said, Take a heifer of the herd in your hand with you and say, I have come to sacrifice to Jehovah.
1Sa 16:3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do. And you shall anoint for Me whomever I name to you.
1Sa 16:4 And Samuel did what Jehovah said, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming and said, Do you come peaceably?
1Sa 16:5 And he said, Peaceably. I have come to sacrifice to Jehovah. Sanctify yourselves and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
1Sa 16:6 And it happened as they came in, he saw Eliab and said, Surely Jehovah’s anointed is before Jehovah.
1Sa 16:7 But Jehovah said to Samuel, Do not look on his face, nor on his height, because I have refused him. For He does not see as man sees. For man looks on the outward appearance, but Jehovah looks on the heart.
1Sa 16:8 And Jesse called Abinadab, and he passed him before Samuel, but he said, Also Jehovah has not chosen this one.
1Sa 16:9 And Jesse passed Shammah by, but he said, Also Jehovah has not chosen this one.
1Sa 16:10 And Jesse passed seven of his sons before Samuel, but Samuel said to Jesse, Jehovah has not chosen these.
1Sa 16:11 And Samuel said to Jesse, Are all the young men here? And he said, There remains yet the youngest, and behold, he keeps the sheep. And Samuel said to Jesse, Send and bring him, for we will not sit down until he comes here.
1Sa 16:12 And he sent and brought him in. And he was ruddy, with beautiful eyes and good form. And Jehovah said, Arise, anoint him. For this is he.
1Sa 16:13 And Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers. And the spirit of Jehovah came on David from that day forward. And Samuel rose up and went to Ramah.
Everything you have read thus far shows you Yehovah is the one who chooses the Kings, not men. Yehovah is the one who decides. And we all must respect that choice and serve the King because that is what we wanted when we rejected Yehovah and got Saul.
Respect for the Office
Respect for the Office
There are many brethren who claim to be servants of the King of Kings and yet they have posted endless memes of the King of England and making all sorts of jokes about him. They even accuse him of being the anti-christ.
And yet they say they eagerly await the arrival of our King Yehovah. They have no respect for the office that King Charles holds. They are Belial. Hypocrites who think they are serving Yehovah, while at the same time destroying the office Yehovah made.
Yet we have just shown you how it was Yehovah Himself who placed the Kings over Israel. It was Yehovah who picked King Saul and then after rejecting him, Yehovah chose David. And then later promised King David he would always have an heir to sit on that throne until Mashiach comes. Read about the covenant made with King David by Yehovah.
The Lord’s Covenant with David
2Sa 7:1 And it happened when the king dwelt in his house, and when Jehovah had given him rest round about from all his enemies,
2Sa 7:2 the king said to Nathan the prophet, See now, I live in a house of cedar, but the ark of God dwells within curtains.
2Sa 7:3 And Nathan said to the king, Go, do all that is in your heart, for Jehovah is with you.
2Sa 7:4 And that night the Word of Jehovah came to Nathan saying,
2Sa 7:5 Go and tell My servant David, So says Jehovah, Shall you build Me a house for My dwelling?
2Sa 7:6 For I have not dwelt in a house since the day that I brought up the sons of Israel out of Egypt until this day, but have walked in a tent, even in a tabernacle.
2Sa 7:7 In all places in which I have walked with all the sons of Israel, did I speak a word with any of the tribes of Israel, those I commanded to feed My people Israel, saying, Why do you not build Me a house of cedars?
2Sa 7:8 And now so shall you say to My servant David, So says Jehovah of Hosts: I took you from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel.
2Sa 7:9 And I was with you wherever you went, and have cut off all your enemies out of your sight, and have made you a great name like the name of the great ones in the earth.
2Sa 7:10 And I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them so that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more. Neither shall the sons of wickedness afflict them any more, as before.
2Sa 7:11 And even from the time that I commanded judges to be over My people of Israel, so will I cause you to rest from all your enemies. Also Jehovah tells you that He will make you a house.
2Sa 7:12 And when your days are fulfilled, and you shall sleep with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who shall come out of your bowels. And I will make his kingdom sure.
2Sa 7:13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.
2Sa 7:14 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the sons of men.
2Sa 7:15 But My mercy shall not leave him, as I took itfrom Saul, whom I put away before you.
2Sa 7:16 And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever.
2Sa 7:17 According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.
What part of forever do you not understand? The throne of King David would stand forever. And it stands even to this day or else Yehovah is a liar.
Yehovah made the same promise to Solomon.
1 Kings 2:4 that Jehovah may continue His Word which He spoke concerning me, saying, If your sons take heed to their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul saying, there shall not be a man of yours cut off from the throne of Israel.
1 Kings 6:12 As to this house which you are building, if you will walk in My statutes and do My judgments and keep all My commandments, to walk in them, then I will perform My work with you which I spoke to David your father.
1 Chronicles 22:9 Behold, a son shall be born to you who shall be a man of rest. And I will give him rest from all his enemies all around. For his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness to Israel in his days.
10 He shall build a house for My name. And he shall be My son, and I will be his Father. And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.
Psalms 89:28-39 (MKJV)
28 I will keep My mercy for him forever, and My covenant shall stand fast with him.
29 Also I have set his seed forever, and his throne as the days of the heavens.
30 If his children forsake My Law, and do not walk in My judgments;
31 if they profane My Precepts, and do not keep My Commandments;
32 then I will visit their wickedness with the rod, and their sin with stripes.
33 But I will not completely take My loving-kindness from him, and I will not be false in My faithfulness.
34 I will not break My covenant, nor change the thing that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness that I will not lie to David.
36 His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before Me.
37 It shall be established forever like the moon, and like a faithful witness in the heavens. Selah.
38 But You have cast off and rejected us; You have been angry with Your anointed.
39 You have turned away from the covenant of Your servant; You have defiled his crown to the ground.
King David unlike many of you, had great respect for the office Yehovah created. Even though he knew Saul was going to be removed, David still respected the office. In fact, he had so much respect for the office, that when he did do a very minor thing against that office, David was grieved for having done so. Do those of you who post all those memes about King Charles have David’s heart? Will you feel remorse for what you have done against the office Yehovah has instituted? Will you remove those memes and ask Yehovah for forgiveness, or will you wear your badge of Belial?
David Spares Saul’s Life
1Sa 24:1 And it happened when Saul had returned from following the Philistines, they told him, saying, Behold, David is in the wilderness of En-gedi.
1Sa 24:2 And Saul took three thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and went to seek David and his men on the front of the rocks of the wild goats.
1Sa 24:3 And he came to the folds of the flock on the way, where there was a cave. And Saul went in to cover his feet. And David and his men remained in the sides of the cave.
1Sa 24:4 And the men of David said to him, Behold, this is the day of which Jehovah said to you, Behold, I will deliver your enemy into your hand so that you may do to him as it shall seem good to you. And David arose and cut off the skirt of Saul’s robe secretly.
1Sa 24:5 And it happened afterward David’s heart struck him because he had cut off Saul’s skirt.
1Sa 24:6 And he said to his men, Far be it from me, by Jehovah, if I will do this thing to my lord, Jehovah’s anointed, to stretch forth my hand against him, since he is the anointed of Jehovah.
1Sa 24:7 And David held back his men with words, and did not allow them to rise against Saul. And Saul rose up out of the cave and went on his way.
1Sa 24:8 And David arose afterward and went out of the cave, and cried after Saul, saying, My lord the king! And Saul looked behind him. And David bowed his face to the earth and prostrated himself.
1Sa 24:9 And David said to Saul, Why do you hear man’s words, saying, Behold, David seeks to do you evil?
1Sa 24:10 Behold, your eyes have seen today how Jehovah had delivered you today into my hand in the cave. And one said to kill you. But I had pity on you. And I said, I will not put forth my hand against my lord, for he is Jehovah’s anointed.
1Sa 24:11 And, my father, behold! Yes, see the skirt of your robe in my hand. For in that I cut off the skirt of your robe and did not kill you, know and see that there is neither evil nor transgression in my hand, and I have not sinned against you. Yet you hunt my soul to take it.
1Sa 24:12 May Jehovah judge between me and you, and may Jehovah avenge me of you. But my hand shall not be on you.
1Sa 24:13 As the ancient proverb says, Wickedness proceeds from the wicked. But my hand shall not be on you.
1Sa 24:14 After whom has the king of Israel come out? After whom do you pursue? After a dead dog? After a flea?
1Sa 24:15 May Jehovah therefore be judge, and judge between you and me, and see, and plead my cause, and deliver me out of your hand.
1Sa 24:16 And it happened when David had made an end of speaking these words to Saul, Saul said, Is this your voice, my son David? And Saul lifted up his voice and wept.
1Sa 24:17 And he said to David, You are more righteous than I, for you have rewarded me with good, but I have rewarded you evil.
1Sa 24:18 And you have shown this day how you have dealt well with me, because when Jehovah shut me up into your hand, you did not kill me.
1Sa 24:19 For if a man finds his enemy, will he let him go completely away? And may Jehovah reward good for what you have done to me this day.
1Sa 24:20 And now, behold, I know well that you shall surely be king, and that the kingdom of Israel shall be established in your hand.
1Sa 24:21 And swear therefore to me before Jehovah that you will not cut off my seed after me, and that you will not destroy my name out of my father’s house.
1Sa 24:22 And David swore to Saul. And Saul went home, but David and his men went up into the hold.
After reading this, you must ask, where is that throne of David now?
It is obvious to anyone with just half a brain. King Charles is sitting on that throne as one descended from King David and King Solomon in fulfilment of Yehovah’s promises to these two men. Again I ask, why do so many, who claim to be believers of the Torah, treat Yehovah’s office for His King here on earth with such distain and disrespect? Because they are ______ fill in the blank but the word starts with m and ends with n, and has an r in the middle.
Long LIve the King
Long Live the King
Even though many have forgotten what many of the traditions mean, we who study our Torah ought to know and understand. So much was on full display for all to see today. Please understand what you are missing. The King, represents Yehovah here on earth.
Do you not understand that this pomp and ceremony represents our Yehovah, whom the King represents here on earth?
1Sa 8:9 And now listen to their voice. Only, you shall surely protest solemnly to them, and show them the kind of king who shall reign over them.
Today’s coronation was done in the name of the King of Kings. Yehovah. That goes all the way back to King Saul. God Save the King.
2Sa 5:5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years over all Israel and Judah.
2Ch 23:11 And they brought out the king’s son and put the crown on him, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him and said, Let the king live!
2Ki 11:12 And he brought forth the king’s son, and put the crown and the testimony on him. And they made him king and anointed him, and clapped their hands and said, Let the king live!
2Sa 16:16 And it happened, when Hushai the Archite, David’s friend, had come to Absalom, Hushai said to Absalom, Let the king live, let the king live!
1Sa 10:25 Then Samuel told the people the duties of the kingdom, and wrote in a book and laid it up before Jehovah. And Samuel sent all the people away, each to his house.
Learning the Truth
History Lessons 101
History Lesson 101
If you are still reading down to here, then you know I am annoyed at the lack of respect the brethren are showing to the office of Yehovah, who is KING of KINGS. Yehovah has set King Davids’s throne here and established it forever. Upon that throne today sits King Charles III a direct descendant of King David.
I also know many of you have not ever read the introduction I have shared in The 2300 Days of Hell. Or if you did you have forgotten what we showed you there.
So here is your homework. Re-read the first 250 pages of the 2300 Days of Hell and relearn where the throne of David went.
You can also go here to read about Joseph of Arimathea who was also of that same Davidic line, as was Yehshua. Go to this link and scroll to the bottom and begin to read all those articles about Joseph and what he did and WHERE he did it. Ignorance is a choice people make when they refuse to open up a book and read but choose to turn on the boob tube and empty their brains of all knowledge, filling it with useless trivia. I leave you with a choice.
Here is a link you can use to get the 2300 online now. https://sightedmoon.org/2300-days-of-hell55091767
I would give it away if I knew people would appreciate the information given to them. But they don’t. Yes, I am soured by the comments the brethren are making about our King. They do not appreciate anything. So buy the book. No gifts from me today.
