Shabbat Shalom To the Royal Family,
This is going to be a very short and light News Letter as many of you are already keeping the Feast somewhere. But I also know that some of you are at home wondering how to keep the Feast.
do you recall my introduction email last week? If not it went like this.
First, there was a solar eclipse across the entire USA and then there was Cat 5 Hurricane Harvey that flooded Houston. Then there was Cat 5 Hurricane Irma that destroyed some of the Caribbean Islands and did damage to Florida. And while this was going on North Korea and President Trump were exchanging words about nuking each other to smithereens.
Then another Cat 4 Hurricane Jose which was followed by Cat 5 Hurricane Maria which again devastated the Caribbean and utterly destroyed Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. At the same time, there were two earthquakes in Mexico at 8.1 and 7.1 magnitudes.
All of this has been going on during the 40 days of repentance leading up to the Day of Atonement this Sunday starting the night before at the end of the Sabbath.
Then the worse event of all, even worse than North Korea detonating the largest Atomic Bomb ever, causing a 6.3 earthquake, was the NFL kneeling during the National Anthem and taking the top news stories this past week. Never mind the people in Puerto Rico with no electricity or communications, nor gas nor water or food. Never mind those in the Virgin Islands with the same problems or those in Houston who are still dealing with the flood after effects, or Mexico where they are still digging out the dead looking for survivors. No, the big news on most stations was the NFL Millionaires disrespecting the flag and the armed forces.
Seriously, the biggest news came during the last 10 days of Awe and it was not any of what I have said above. The real news story during these 40 days of repentance is the bombshell that went off in Germany Sept 24, 2017, when for the first time since WW II the German people elected back into the Bundestag the AFD which are equated to the Nazi’s before World War II. The AFD went from zero seats to 13% of the vote or 88 seats of a possible 630 seats to become the third largest party.
So now add to this long list of things that happened during the 40 days of repentance one more event. The very night that Atonement was over Sunday night, a man with an automatic machine gun began to mow down people at a Country Music concert in Vegas. At this time of writing 58 dead and 500 wounded.
Yehovah is disciplining us but no one is listening. It is going to get worse.
Email this Week
But before I begin this week, I want to share some emails from last weeks News Letter.
You are so right. With everything we have witnessed the last 40 days and for foot ball to be the main concern for so many – it is a sad world we are living in
Somewhere I read and He causes the image to speak. With today’s modern technology (& our idiot boxes talking to us) gay marriage and acceptance of anything goes. We have become a peculiar people and just a remnant of believers (Even the division between the brothers – rotating sabbath – flat earth- one day in heart of earth instead of 3- the list goes on and on!! Stand firm & Carry on brother
You are so right and you are loved

I have been searching through the teachings on this site as well bought and read through a couple of the books. At the same time, I have been searching out a church to attend. My question is what denomination of church would you recommend for someone wanting to align to the teachings presented in the writings? I notice where the Church of God is referenced in some of the newsletters, but I also noticed in the preface of the books that the Church of God may not be entirely aligned with the teachings. Could you give me a recommendation on what denomination would be best to align with?
The next one is one excited lady and we did write her back and answered each of her questions.
Dear Mr Dumond”,
Since May this year I have been receiving your newsletter after a reliable sister in Christ posted something from your site on Facebook. The name “Sighted moon” really freaked me out. It sounded positively new age, at least. Maybe even wiccan (?) or worse. The first few articles I just skimmed through. There was just so much I did not understand and could not relate to, and I was on my way to unsubscribe when something about the Sabbath (not Sunday) caught my eye. Since then I was hooked.
Having read too much in too short a time, my mind is reeling, bursting and, hopefully, expanding. Some words and concepts are very foreign. The references to the moon and days from Adam, etc. are intimidating, so I tend to ignore them, especially because I do not read the archived newsletters in sequence. The read is difficult on my phone, so I press the “convert to pdf” and email it to my laptop to print out or just read. The hard copy of “2300 days of hell” that I ordered, is soooo full of facts and information that I cannot even absorb the half of it. At present there is absolutely no continuity in the topics I read, which leaves me even more confused.
Some of my initial questions got answered when I re-read some articles. The three days and three nights only became clear on the third read. The stuff on “Grace” in Galatians and Romans is very precious, because that is exactly the arguments I have been getting for the past year when I mentioned that God was convicting me regarding the Sabbath. That one point, and your teaching and explanations that come through in most of what you write, is what keeps me reading and researching the rest of what you stand for. Still, I battle with the information overload. 🙂
Please forgive me for using statements like “I read somewhere” or “I saw/heard/read” – 99% of that is on your site or You Tube teachings, but I am gorging on the information too much to really recall what was where. It creates a problem for me. I copy and paste extracts from various articles on Word documents, and can never refer back to them because I neglected to add the web page to the information.
If you do not mind, I would like to ask some questions. The first one stems from what the church I visit teaches.
– I re-read a book on the seven feasts, from the perspective of the Dutch Reformed Church – where Sunday worship and the “rapture” features very strongly. For a long time I suspected the rapture-teaching to be false, but can still not say WHY – apart from believing that the saints on earth during the tribulation, will be the ones ministering the truth. But, will the Holy Spirit still be around to convict sinners? Is that the period that commences mid-2020? (Oh dear, I am even more confused that what I thought.)
– You referred me to Michael Rood (time of sighting of the moon on Thursday 21st). He has numerous short videos on YouTube – does he underwrite the principles you teach?
In one of your newsletters was a link to Schalk and Elsa Klee in South Africa, http://www.setapartpeople.com/ – now in the Netherlands. There was also a referral to Avi ben Mordechai at https://cominghome.co.il – both these mention Torah principles – are they following the Sabbatical and Jubilee years? (I do not want to spend time with other convictions at present.)
– Why are ?? used in front of/after common names (David, Abraham, etc). Also after something like G5424?
– I read somewhere that in “2012/2013, Israel was invaded by the king of the North”. Who was this “king” – Palestine being supported by extremist Moslem countries?
– I listened to the “10 Tribes” teachings, but I cannot say that I understand clearly. Even after reading about it in “2300 …”. The map is very small and unclear. Could you perhaps make a note available with columns, like “Son” ; “taken to ….. as POW”; “Migrated to ….”; “Now known as …”; “Future role”. And a bigger map? (So, I like being spoon fed, ok.)
– In one recent newsletter you referred to the growing scarcity of oils (you mentioned Jojoba); in another there was reference to vibrations being in all of creation. What was that about? I haven’t come across the starting point of such conversations yet.
– The Torah. Are those five books the same as in a regular Bible? Is what I read in the KJV the same as what a Jewish Rabbi would read in the synagogue?
– For the first time in my life, during the week end of ‘Trumpets & Sabbath, I read Leviticus. The whole book. You teach much on the proviso for the blessings, and even more on the curses. The impression I have is that you use only the Sabbath, the seven year cycles and Jubilee laws, but what about all those other laws God gave Moses? Or, does “living Torah” include the laws regarding uncleanness of women during/after menstruation and after child birth, etc. etc.? (Is a leprous house one being infected with mould?) Do you eat the fat of animals; discard the off fall organs; etc.?
Do you eat pork? If not, what about Romans 14 and 15?
– What does “the anointed to be cut off” (2020) mean?
– What is the (70th) Shabuwa – in a nutshell? I read that the “2300 . . . ” was initially named that.
– In your “Sabbatical and Jubilee Calendar” (My printout is grayscale, which makes it even more difficult to understand) – there are 7 cycle-columns, with 7 year-rows. I understand that the top row represents the Sabbatical years, and at the end of the 7 X 7 = 49th year is the Jubilee year. (Is that cluster of 49 a Shabuwa?) The question is: is there special significance to the years in the “Sabbath” (7th) column? Those clusters are numbered up to 120, the 120th being complete in 2045. Is there significance to those cluster-numbers?
– What is the situation with the farm? From the disjointed information gleaned from some old/some new newsletters, I am aware that you wanted to buy a farm and a kibbutz – did you accomplish that? What exactly is the purpose of the farm? Sometimes it sounds as if you are inviting people to go there to work/live. Is it now or later? You want to demonstrate what obedience to God’s Sabbatical instructions will make to produce, I gather. Do you consider it a safe haven during the period of persecution?
– The Wave Offering. I read “barley”; I read “Aviv” – what is all that in simple English? And how do people in other countries, that maybe experience Winter right then, go about having young barley to wave? Please forgive me, but I must ask – is it not legalistic? Do you do the offering of oil and flour as well? How do you decide which parts of God’s instructions are valid for today and which are not?
– Do you perhaps have some basic, elementary, KISS write-ups that can be used when first approaching people with the new information regarding:
Keeping the Sabbath
Keeping Sabbatical years
We are all children of Abraham (Israelis) / Part of the 10 Tribes
The seven feasts. And what is the 8th day feast?
The time line for the coming years
– You said that you are not a Christian. That, if I believe what you believe, I am not a Christian. OK. This really floored me, but after some prayerful thought, I understand what you meant. I have to agree. But what am I then?
– Is it possible to accept these new truths without being able to live them out? At present I am “being a hypocrite” – saying that I have come under conviction to adopt a new life style, but having no way to demonstrate or practice it.
It has been more than a week since the salutation was typed. There is still much unasked, but until another time, I bid you
Jo your latest newsletter is amazing. Stephen has taken 3 hours to read it andI have taken one hour so far. Excellent.

This final note was sent via facebook and it made my day. It also inspired this weeks title.
Good afternoon! Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. I purchased your book 2300 days and read it. WOW.. It pushed me to find your videos on YouTube and I watched them. I’m so stirred up, constantly thinking of these things. Blows away everything I’ve been taught all my life but I KNOW this is truth! How do I go from here?? I have 3 young boys and we CRAVE right teaching, to know and understand.. I found your website too, now I understand the difference between milk and meat in the word!
It’s my honor! I’m so shaken, I MUST learn! I need to teach my boys and those around me. We are Jewish believers but don’t understand anything really till now! We will pray for you to have strength to continue teaching and be received by those who give audience to your words., I will read the articles and learn. Please if you are ever close to East Tennessee we would welcome you to come teach us and we will take care of you here! Our hearts are hungry for the light of the true path you have pointed out. How have we not known this for years??! I can’t go back now that I know.
As we have been telling you we have been working with our brethren in the Philippines. I just wanted to share his latest email to us and show you what you have been able to help us to achieve.
Seasons Greetings /Chag Sameach Brother Prophet Joseph,
This is the usual end of the month ministry update. The present celebration of the Biblical Holydays are always better than before.
Our hard work and dedication to spread the truth has paid off . By seeing more and more believers come the truth of the Torah and celebrating the biblical holydays , there is nothing more satisfying to the soul that seeing christians celebrating the biblical holydays. To my estimate knowing the different christian and messianic groups that are celebrating the feast of Yom teruach and Yom Kippur so far, is around 20 thousands filipinos more or less in Manila and in the provinces have celebrated and have gathered together for the feast this year.
The feast of Yom Teruah/ Feast of Trumpets in Congress last Sept. 20 was attended at least by 150 delegates from pastors and bishops and some congressmen. Thou they don’t understand yet the sightedmoon, that will come later thou. This is history in the making. This hasn’t happened before in the history of the Republic of the Philippines.
As to the network of churches that I personally influenced over the years, I don’t think that these pastors whom I was used by YHVH to open their eyes to the truth will ever again go back to their previous ways of doing church traditions.
Several of these pastors have resigned from their old christian organizations. Yes, they were persecuted for celebrating the biblical sabbath and the feast of YHVH. Yet there’s much work to be done. From my personal network, so far 18 ministers with their elders and members have celebrated the Feast of Trumpets last Sept. 21, 2017 according to the sighted moon, also during the feast of Yom kippur.
Il be passing the word that the feast of sukkot/tabernacles will begin on Oct. 5 6PM so everybody can simultaneously celebrated the feast of Sukkot according to the sightedmoon.
Wow ! This is happening before our eyes. This must be from YHVH. Praise to HIM , our calling is being confirmed. As Rabbi Shaul said ” run the race, overcome any obstacles that come your way.. finish the course.” This is my situation. I sacrifice my time, effort and resources for this cause of spreading the Torah revival in and around the Philippine Islands.
I have a very strong leading thou lately since it was confirmed by some of the leaders who I met over the internet social media/facebook, that I am working on a ministry tour to several key cities in the Islands of Mindanao as well as the Visayas region of the Philippines.
I was invited to teach the biblical hebrew language to a church in Cagayan de Oro City Mindanao. My strategy is to get christians to be interested in learning the basic of the Hebrew language then later on get them on board the study of the Torah. This for several years have been my way of introducing to the christian brethren the Law in a positive way. To my surprise as I was interviewing the key leaders in the Messianic Torah keepers in the city of Davao, Butuan, Zamboanga and Surigao, their torah keeping group is growing in their area. Lately, I was talking to the leader in Davao City ( where president Rudy Duterte lives) that the torah keeping group there had reach 500 believers. This is great news!
So I’m scheduled to travel to Mindanao for two weeks in the last two weeks of November 2017. My goal is get the leaders to unite for the cause of making the 7 biblical holidays a national holy days in the Philippines, which already was approved in the first reading in the House of Representative/Congress.
Also to share to them the vision about the end times and how we should be preparing. So this is a good networking trip among the torah keeping group in Mindanao that I’m planning now.
The good thing is I had a assistant torah teacher in MLTC who can teach well if I’m not around in Manila.
I’m doing the best I can to the best of my ability that YHVH gave me, to be counted worthy of my calling.
Honestly I never thought of this is going to be my destiny in life. I did not plan to be a missionary for the truth of torah, it just happen along the way as I was searching for the truth and real meaning and fulfillment in life. I now had discovered the real “purpose driven life.”
Its all about YHVH and His best plans for our lives. I believed each one of us has a big role to fulfill.
There’s nothing better than this. This end time revival for the torah is bigger than ourselves even bigger than life itself.
How amazing is YHVH. He truly deserved the honor and praise thru His son Yeshua the Messiah.
Bless your brother Joseph and your family and friends and your ministry www.sightedmoon.com

Tithe to Yourself Faithfully
We are in Israel for Sukkot this week. We are meeting friends we have not seen for years and some since last year. It is like a homecoming. Just being here is very special. Some of you may recall that last year on my way home from Israel I was bumped off my flight and had to take another to Holland and had to spend the night there. I raised a stink about this and they pacified me by giving me a free flight to anywhere EL Al flew. I just had to use it before the year expired.
So my flight to Israel this year cost me nothing. Our hostel will cost me about $35 US per night. We will also be doing just one Bus tour this year which is estimated to cost each of us about $50 US. The walking tours around Jerusalem will also be done and cost next to nothing. And then there is the food. Maybe $50 a day. So if you add it all up I will be paying about $900 for the 10 days in Jerusalem. If I had to pay for the airfare it would have been $3434, which is the highest I have ever seen it. But that might be because I am checking it just days before departure. Normally on El Al it is about $2000 and I have also flown here for just $900.
I am telling you all this so you can see it does not cost an arm and a leg. Many groups charge between $3000 and $5000 for a full guided tour. We were asking $3000 for a tour but have now canceled it and let those who are coming get their own rooms and meals.
You are commanded to tithe each year and if those tithes are too much to bring with you, to turn them into money and then come.
Deut 14:22-27 “You shall truly tithe all the increase of your grain that the field produces year by year. And you shall eat before the Lord your God, in the place where He chooses to make His name abide, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your flocks, that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always. But if the journey is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, or if the place where the Lord your God chooses to put His name is too far from you, when the Lord your God has blessed you, then you shall exchange it for money, take the money in your hand, and go to the place which the Lord your God chooses. And you shall spend that money for whatever your heart desires: for oxen or sheep, for wine or similar drink, for whatever your heart desires; you shall eat there before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. You shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no part nor inheritance with you.
Yehovah wants you to party with Him. So if you make just $30,000 a year and you take 10% of that you would have $3000 to spend on yourself at the Feast in Jerusalem each year. The question is ” Are you able to faithfully tithe 10% to yourself each year. Forget your church and that needs a new roof or a new jet aircraft or all those people telling you to tithe to them. Stop doing that. Tithe to yourself first and obey Yehovah and come to His Feast. Tithe to yourself. You just read the commandment in Deuteronomy. Go look it up in your own bible if you do not believe me.
Milk or Meat teachings.
Since 2005 we have been writing and searching for the truth on every subject. I have done this mostly for myself. I just had to know the truth no matter what. This is why I went to Noah’s Ark in Eastern Turkey to see if it was true or not. This is why I explored Jerusalem and Israel to see if the rest of the bible is true. This is why I researched many of the subjects that many of you are or have been searching for the answers on. I sought to learn the truth. I was challenged by many and I am still challenged by some today on a variety of subjects. This then forces me to go and examine my points again or correct them.
So I do my research for me. I Do not care about being politically correct because I am seeking the truth and I do not care what others think. I do not do this to gain a following or to collect tithes. I do not care about any of that. I just seek the truth for my own being.
I also do not hold your hands for very long. I expect those who do read our material and proof it to begin to teach it as if it was their own. In my research, I often find others who have already done some of the work and I quote them. I recently had a Church of God group try to shut down our website because we used a few paragraphs from their site. Talk about petty. We removed any quotes from them we had and will not refer to them ever again.
This week we are talking briefly about Milk and meat teachings. I say briefly to remind myself to keep this short. LOL.
Read what the author of Hebrews has to say.
Heb 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
How many of you are going once again to some church or some group or some home fellowship to be taught? How many years have you gone to this same fellowship? Or how many years have you been bouncing around from one to the other? Why in Yehovah’s name are you not yet teaching others? If you’re going to be a leader in the Kingdom of Yehovah, don’t you think you ought to be teaching now and practicing these things you’re going to have to know in His Kingdom?
As Hebrews says, you need the milk because you are still sucking the breast. Those on the breast do not know how to cook or how to prepare or how to gather the food they need to eat. You’re not able to take criticism or address it or prove it true or false. You are unskilled in the word of Yehovah. Why do you not use your common sense and your wisdom from the long life you have had, and the many years of study you now have, to teach others?
Start on Facebook or join some Christian group and begin to quote the scriptures to them. You will be removed or kicked out. Then find another group and do it over again. Even in the heated or mild debates will be people who will say nothing but will be watching and learning from you in their silence.
Many of you are in Churches of God groups and hiding, or you’re in some Church group and you’re hiding so they do not discover your’re learning these other truths. But you say nothing knowing you will get kicked out of that group if you should ever speak up. Shame on you. Speak up. There might even be two others doing the same thing wanting to talk to someone about what they are learning.
I say this to you as much as I say it to myself as well. I am always looking for a place to teach from or new people to teach. This is why I stay in Hostels in Israel. TO meet others who are looking for Jesus. I then get to explain some of the things I have learned to them. So far in the two days here already we have found 7 new people who had never heard of us before. There is three ladies here from Columbia. Grand Mother daughter and Grand daughter. They started to study on Sabbath on year ago. They do not know why. BUt they read to keep the Sabbath. They have no teachers or tv people teaching them. Just their own studies. So they came to Israel this year. A man I met yesterday and who joined us in the walking tour today was talking to them and then had to introduce me to them. We talked and then they wanted to learn more about the Sabbatical years which is what I teach. So Yehovah has been working with them and it was awesome to be a part of their learning process.
I do so enjoy meeting new people getting the emails from the new people as I have above and how they are racing to catch up.
And just so you know, as I am writing this I get a phone call suggesting me to teach on a weekly basis here. Yehovah is watching to see what we do, all of us.
Many of you are tired of the milk teachings you get at your local assembly or church or group. You grow bored with the same old stuff.
1 Corinthians 3:1-16 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?
Watering, Working, Warning
Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.
For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
I am pulling this next scripture out of the context in which it was given. The point that I want to make is that is high time many of you grew up. How long have you been claiming to be following Yehovah? Yet you continue to act and talk as if it was your first year in the faith. Grow up already.
1 Corinthians 14:20 Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature.
Now read Galatians with maturity and understand that Paul is again telling you to grow up.
Galatians 4:1- Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Fears for the Church
But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? You observe days and months and seasons and years. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.
Satan spoke to Yehshua when he tried to tempt Him those three times using scriptures. Yehshua responded by quoting scripture. When Satan spoke to Eve in the Garden, she tried to reason with him and was deceived.
Many of you assume you are not deceived by Satan. You assume you know it all. And yet you are still just infants in this walk. I have asked this before and I ask it again now.
Why were 6 Million Jews slaughtered in WW II? Why were they murdered and raped and stripped of all they owned during the pogroms and persecutions beginning with the Crusades in the 11th century?
Hebrews 5:11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain, because you are dull of hearing.
This past Sunday and for many, it was this past Saturday, but on Sunday we kept the day of Atonement. Why? Because you are commanded to do so? Or did you truly repent and beg for forgiveness and are sincerely trying not to repeat those same sins that you did before? Or was it just another day to practice your religion?
Why were some keeping the Day of Atonement on one day early on Saturday?
Do you remember this verse in Lev 19:17
“You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him.
And this verse in 1 John 3:15
Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
When you do not speak up, when you keep silent while you watch your brother sin then you are hating your brother who is going to die for his sin. You become the murderer of him because of your silence.
Each of you knows people who did not keep the Day of Atonement at all or on the proper day, via the sighted moon. You know many who keep the Hebrew calendar and they all keep this day of Atonement and all the Feast Days at the wrong time. This year they kept it on Saturday. Well, at least they kept it you think. but hear what Yehovah says.
Lev 23:29-30 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.
He is going to cut off anyone who works on this day or is not afflicted. They will be cut off. And when they die you will be as guilty of murder by your silence as if you had shot them yourself. Yehovah is demanding you speak up and warn them of why the Hebrew Calendar is wrong and why they need to keep the crescent moon Calendar.
You cannot do this if you’re constantly being fed and drinking milk. You must eat the meatier subjects to learn these truths and to be able to tell others who are on milk why they are in error.
Satan has changed the calendar and we have taught this many times. He has the Christians not keeping it at all. He had the Jews change it in 358 and then in the 12th century. He has the Hebrew roots people and the Churches of God people all following the changed calendar the Jews use and there is no one to warn them they are about to die.
James 2:18-20 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
Do you tremble when you have sinned? Are you afraid of being cut off by Yehovah? Do you fear when you are tempted or have sinned?
Hebrews 6:1 Therefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith in God,
Hebrews 10:32 Remember the early days that you were in the light, when you endured a great conflict in the face of suffering.
Have you forgotten how hard it was to just keep the Sabbath when you first learned about it? Do you remember how hard it was to get time off each time the Holy Days came and fell during the week when you were supposed to be at work? Have you forgotten how your family abandoned you when you started on this journey and the light of Yehovah was just starting to shine in you?
Are you still struggling with these things? Are you still in need of milk teachings? If you are new to this walk then this is fine and normal.
1 Peter 2:2 Like newborn infants, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,
But if you have been walking this walk now for some years, why are you still wrestling with the basic things? I see many new people coming in this faith and they are leap years ahead of many of us. Leap years! Their zeal is amazing and inspiring to see and they are willing to do anything to grow and learn more. I have written to you about those in the Philippines and recently in Burundi. They hunger to learn more but there are few that are ready to teach.
John 4:34-38 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, “There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. For in this the saying is true: ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap that for which you have not labored; others have labored, and you have entered into their labors.”
When you were a child your food was provided for you by others. But when you grew up you had to labour for your food and you had to buy your food each week.
As you have read in this week’s emails, many are racing to catch up and others love the strong meat we serve here. They see the difference between the milk teachings they have grown accustomed to and the meat teachings they have found in our videos and News Letters and books. Some have asked us to do a weekly live streaming of our teachings. Others want us to teach each week in a regular service.
But no one wants to buy their meat. They think it should be the same as the milk and just given to them. Again, time to mature.
We pleaded and begged you to support us in going to Burundi this Summer. You did and I thank you dearly for this.
If you want me to teach weekly on a live video stream then I need people to help. If you want deeper teachings with more meat each week mixed with milk for the newcomers then I need more time to research and prepare them. If you want more DVD teachings and we have many that we could do, then we need to be able to hire those who can make that happen. If you want more of the podcasts which take about 8 hours each to produce then again we need the time to do this for you.
James Relf, Brothers Aike and Leo in the Philippines and Bishop Telesphore and all his pastors in Burundi, as well as our News Letter editor, Laura Smith (who almost died recently) and our social media people Pauline Benjes and Judith Dennis, have all been working with me to both teach and help us get this message out and they do it for free. There are others who have come and been burnt out by the workload and left. Others we hire from time to time when we have the money.
Many of my friends who teach are forced to have their supporters give and then they get extra special teachings. Many messianic teachers share their informational teaching with only those who subscribe to them. We have not done this and have given it all away for free with no strings attached.
I work a full-time job to pay my bills. I do not burden the brethren with this. This leaves me with a couple of hours each night for both my family and answering emails and or working on the next Newsletter. Somehow I am able to squeeze out those four books and to make those DVDs available in between my job and family.
So if you want more meat then it is going to cost you. My bills do not go away. The staff that now helps me needs to be paid. A hall and office need to be rented.
If everyone on our mailing list was to spend $5 each week, we could do all of the above. A weekly live stream service more meat teachings and a variety of teachers. More DVDs teachings on specific subjects.
1 Timothy 5:17-18 Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. For the Scripture says, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain,” and, “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
So I leave this with you. We know it is the Feast time and many are away at this time. Understood. I know the amount needed to make this work; to pay those who work with us and to hire those we need to do certain things. I know how much work is going on in the Philippines and Burundi and what they need to do the work there. I also know there is much more to be done in the little time we have left to do it.
If the funds are there, consistently there each week and each month then we will go ahead and get the meat ready for you. We will get the live stream ready for you and we will get the podcasts done for you. If the funding is not there consistently each week and each month then I will have to continue to give my time to my employer in order to pay our bills.
Are you mature enough to take on this workload until the end of this age we are now in?
Do not write me and tell me what you’re going to do. Show me by your actions. I have had many people write to tell me how excited they are to learn these things. And how they would support this work. After a few weeks, I never hear from them again. Show me your faith by your works.
