Shabbat Shalom Royal Family of Yehovah,
Shabbat Zoom Meeting
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Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle.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 teach you and encourage 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 to explain 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 January 8, 2022, the room will be open at 12:30 PM Eastern with singing and prayers until about 1:15 PM. You are all welcome to join and watch. It is not recorded. We will have our afternoon service after this. You are welcome to come and join us before during and after we are off the air.
We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.
Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Septennial Torah Portion
If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 5th year which is the 5th 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 January 8, 2021, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about
If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.

Shalom Grandpa Joseph,Thank you for sharing information with me about the email you sent the president of Kenya and the email from pastor Noah who would like to spread this truth on the African Continent.When I started to be convicted with this truth, I went to visit as many churches as I could, especially where I used to preach and teach. The purpose of my visit was to repent and ask forgiveness for being taught heresies. Some were saying that I am depressed or crazy. I was respected by many people and they couldn’t speak in public, only whispering.For the second time, I invited first Reverends, pastors, deacons, evangelists and department leaders under my supervision. We spent 5 days teaching the Torah and the New Testament. Many questions have been raised and answers were given accordingly. During the workshop, they realized that the Torah is important. Everyone who attended that training went back convicted and that was the day they started to read the old testament and started to keep the Sabbath. From there, we started to organize many trainings with other denominations. Now we have strong core teams that teach and preach tirelessly in all the provinces of Burundi and keep the commandments.There are three teams in Democratic Republic of Congo ( Goma, Uvira and Bukavu) which I am in contact with every week as well as in Rwanda. It has been about one month since I do not hear the team in Tanzania. Maybe the network could be the issue.Now that no one can understand this hidden understanding, only those who obey His commandments. Those who started to obey, they are very happy because they understand the scriptures where they had confusion. The 120 Jubilee of Genesis 6:3 connected with the curses in Lev.26 This revelation was new for all of us.If I go through my training records, I found 86 training sessions and 32 meetings with Very Important People in the Government of Burundi, no one proved this truth wrong.Pastor Noah from Kenya has good ideas to spread this truth but first of all he needs to be coached. When he understands this hidden understanding, he has to tell his people that he was teaching them heresies. From there, he can train a strong team and send them to the villages and cities as I did.Let me tell you, if you come to know this hidden understanding and obey, there is a force that drives you to go to tell others and those who get a chance to hear you, they are changed immediately or remain in confusion because it is the whole truth. I was among the people who liked to argue but here no arguing.One of my strategies to spread this truth I am using, I am contacting the Ministers, governors and administrators of the government to discuss where the curses come from. I am starting a team in South Africa, Malawi and Mozambique. I plan to organize an East African Conference to meet with those who are involved in spreading this truth and sent three days in learning zone.Every day I am wondering why Yehovah chose me to be the first one in Africa to know this amazing truth. Lord, why? I said Lord , send me. In Burundi I have donated my two clinics to help the teams for transport to spread the truth in Burundi and travel to Congo and Rwanda.We are in the last days and we have no time to make long preparations. Now is the time to hear and act.This is the time to start contacting the Presidents of the Republic in a protocol way as you did in Kenya about the climate change and curses.This Book of The Mystery of the Jewish Rapture in 2033 is vey final. I pray that everyone can hear just a part of it. It is amazing. Glory to Yehovah.We have in Kenya Josephat, Bishop Eliphaz Mitugo, Henry Mate and the new one Noah. They need to be grounded in the truth then communicate with their relatives and friends wherever they are in the whole World. This is one of the ways to spread this truth.Again thank you Joseph for this revelation Yehovah revealed to you and enabled to spread it to save the World.The visits and trainings led by James in Burundi brought a big impacts and change in many life of the Bishops, Reverends, pastors, deacons, evangelists and some government leaders.We are proud to be one of the few who are chosen.ShalomBishop TeleshoreBurundi Torah Ministry
We also received this week, letters from Brother Aike and Brother Dennis. Two more groups which you have been helping and supporting for the past number of years. I want you to hear from them so you know what your support is doing.
January 2, 2022
Dear Sightedmoon readers,
My name as most people call me is brother aike macias aizon jr. From Antipolo City Rizal Province Philippines. I’ve been in the torah restoration movement since 2005. It has been almost 17 years since the I discovered the beauty of studying and practicing the torah. At the cour of my journey, YHVH has used me to led several hundreds of people mostly filipinos, including formerly many christian pastors to the torah. I’m very grateful to have met Joseph Dumond since 2015 and 2018 in organizing conference in different parts of Manila and province. Through Joseph and I sincere partnership, we pioneered the torah movement in Davao City in 2018. Through pastor dennis parajes and some key leaders there, the regular shabbat service attendance now has grown to close to 200 men women and children. This multiplication is indeed a blessing and very encouraging. I don’t know of anywhere else in the Philippines that this had happened. As you know it’s not easy to lead people to the truth of the torah. There are countless of opposition from the christian leaders side. But as for me who formerly work marketing field in the secular world before, I think of everything to be positive. I just tried and tried and tried my very best to influence people to follow the truth of the torah. My strenght is that I’m a very friendly person, I befriended pastors and visit their churches even preaching inside their churches. Doing this full time work since 2014 is nothing short of amazing. About how my needs were met in providing for my family and helping carrying the burden of this ministry on my shoulders.
I’m 52 years old now, and somehow had matured in practicing my faith in YHVH through His son Yeshua.
Since March 2020 during the start of the worldwide covid 19 pandemic, we were forced to vacate our rented ministry venue in the heart of the city of Mandaluyong in Metro Manila.
We moved to my farm lot in Antipolo City. By faith we started to embark in constructing what we envision to be the future and the first torah bible school in the Philippines.
We have our seed money and after 20 months we have constructed the basic structure of
our torah fellowship hall and classrooms and kitchen. Sightedmoon through Joseph Dumond has consistently help us with the financial needs of the construction. We that being said that I would like to thank all of you who had supported sightedmoon on a regular basis. I can guarantee you that when you visit the Philippines you will have a place to stay, a roof over your head and bed and blanket and breakfast :-).
Right now I’m personally task to work on “project Goshen”. Our future place of refuge. I’ve been
going in and out of the nearby islands searching for the best suitable place than can house and feed thousands of torah keepers in the future tribulation. Sightedmoon brethren are welcome with us here. I can guarantee you that. Joseph Dumond has been a very good friend and a brother, him being a humble servant of YHVH is a blessing to us by teaching as how to celebrate the Feasts days according to the Abib and sighted moon calendar as well as the calculation of the sabbatical year and knowing when the year of the tribulation will occur.
Meanwhile, I have come to have met some new group and leaders who are also spearheading the teachings of the torah to the filipinos here. Like Army general Bien Casis of Sabbath Believers Association and of course Bishop Butch Belgica of OPARA ( office of the presidential adviser for religious affairs).
On my right is Bishop Belgica and far left is General Bien Casis
Government officials such as Greco Belgica son of Bishop Belgica who is running for the May 2022 senatorial race, a close ally of president Duterte has made a vow before heaven to continue to pursue housebill 6312 declaring the feast of Leviticus 23 as national holy days in the Philippines.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdpa8dzxv_I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79aIz3zf1ig
Prophecies in the Book of Isaiah such as:
Isaiah 42:4 He shall not fail nor be crushed until He has set justice in the earth; and the islands shall wait for His Torah.
Together with the growing torah movement in the Philippines we can make a difference by helping and spreading the teachings of the torah in the 7000 islands here.
The islands of Visayas and Mindanao being mostly Idol worshippers had suffered much from the recent super typhoons.https://www.philstar.com/headlines/2022/01/01/2151217/odette-death-toll-climbs-405-82-still- missing
Filipinos were humbled because of this fate and the best way to preach the gospel of the kingdom is during this times of calamities.
This year 2022 our main goal is to set up “project goshen” which is not just for ourselves but for all sightedmoon brethren who would be coming to the Philippines in the near future.
Also to start operating our Torah bible school in Antipolo City.
Conduct various outreaches in Luzon, visayas and Mindanao Islands.
All this is is much much much work. This are all doable to the best of my knowledge. If we can percieve it we can achieve it. Together we can make it if we help each other.
Halleluyah! Glory to YHVH the one who had called us into this marvelous task. Once in a lifetime opportunity to serve Him until He sets up his soon coming Millennial Kingdom.
God bless us all.
Shalom BROTHER . .
I was a Pastor in a Born Again Sect for almost 7 years but when I started studying the Sabbatical year my obedience to Yehovah is strengthened through the help of Aike Macias and the teachings of Prophet Joseph Dumond’s sightedmoom it answer all my questions and prove things from the Torah SINCE 2018. That is the start of my deep seeking , study and prayer. And I see my self revived and restored because now through the Torah i surely know this is the truth and understand more the scripture. I started pioneering a church in Digos City Davao Del Sur and together with my wife we decided to obey fully the commandments of Yehovah. We keep the Sabbath and apply what truly the Torah teaches. At first we are just renting a house to be a gathering place but as we start obey the Torah miracles happened. Yehovah transfered us on a place that we don’t need to rent anymore. A good place for the brethren to gather, we call it the Torah Center.
Yehovah’s favor was with us and Yehovah leads us to people that has the same desire to know the truth and together with them I continue teaching the Torah and the Kingdom of God. As I continue in the Torah great signs and wonders are confirming on what I’m believing and teaching is true. The Torah Center grow and many people testifying that when they enter in this place something happened to them. They are experiencing healing , deliverance and many mighty works of Yehovah and specially they understand more now the Kingdom of God through the Torah.
Until the desire in my heart to teach the Torah all over the Philippines. I decided to go in many places to do Seminars that the only purpose is to be an eye opener to teach Torah so they may experience the Kingdom of God. One time I went to Manila and miraculously Yehovah connect me to the people who also has the desire to know the Torah. This people was first time I will meet and this is our brethrens in SJDM Bulacan. We decided to have a team-up to spread the Torah all over the Philippines. So we come up to having a Seminar that having this purpose. The name of our Seminar is “Torah meet-up”. Our very first seminar was held on Norzagaray, Bulacan on February 2021 with the help of our brethrens in Bulacan .It was a very successful event , people experienced the deliverance of Yehovah and the power of the Holy Spirit and they now living and keeping the Torah and hold fast on to it more. Yehovah proves me that there is blessing for those who obey in His Torah.
The Lord continue to move, the people who attended the seminar and ask us to have the Torah meet-up in their place because they are blessed. This people are from Mandaluyong. After a few months we organized again a seminar as per the brethren in Mandaluyong requested and many people attended it that almost 100 persons gather to hear the Torah. The seminar continue and brought it even in other places. It was continue in Quezon Province, Pampanga , Taytay second batch in Bulacan , the teaching of the sightedmoon has a big influenced and made a big impact on every people who attended the seminar. The people are open up about the Torah and people who already Torah keepers grow the connection and many of them now are helping each other in the faith and fellowship being revived and continue growing. I see the great movement of Yehovah
While in Torah Center Digos City , we undergo bible studies everyday , people enjoy the Torah and the people who attend the Sabbath gathering they are the people who requesting to share the Torah in their houses and places. People are so hungry and thirsty for the commandments of Yehovah and people here in Digos that we undergo bible studies accepting the Torah and having the eagerness to stand on the truth of Yehovah. Most of them are from the far places , and many of them are near the mountains. The brethren here that having vehicles allows it to be used for the ministry to make service and to fetch the brethren from their places to the Torah Center , some of them are fetch about a 1hr travel to reach the Torah Center.
The Community here in Digos City Davao Del Sur are growing in the Torah , we started from less than 10 people until now we are about to reach almost 150 Torah Keepers for a short period of time. And the Torah keepers we met and being connected through the Seminar are helping, encouraging and edifying one another. Some of them are having collaboration for the work for the Kingdom like feeding to the poor and also do seminars to spread the Torah with the teaching of the sigtedmoon.
In all of these I praise Yehovah’s miraculous acts so we can spread the Torah and the people to experience the Kingdom of God.
Thank you so much for your help sightedmoon. .
Rev. Dennis A. Parajes
Brethren because of your donations there are hundreds of new brethren in the Philippines learning Torah and they have a place to do so at each of the Torah centers even during COVID lockdowns. This is part of what you are contributing to.
Below is a note from Henry Mate in Kenya and the new Torah center he has almost finished. Again this is what you have helped to make happen by your monthly donations.
Shalom Joe I have managed at least to paint the building. Look how beautiful the rooms have come out. I’ve just taken the photos for you to see. It’s fully electrified. Looking forward to putting furnitures and some essential features for a Torah school. Pst.Dan is looking forward to observing sabbatical year 2023. Evans Matara is also learning very fast. My brethren also are doing wonderful teachings. They are doing great. More and more people are getting printed newsletters, articles and Torah lessons. I print and give or send them copies. Then Joe I’d kindly ask you to send me copies of the following ebooks –
Biblical Foundation lesson book The Validity of Torah
The Battle Ground Within
Thank you Joe. Happy New Month 12. Shalom.
These e-books have now been sent to Kenya.
OMICRON THE COST
On 26 November 2021,WHO designated the variant B.1.1.529 a variant of concern, named Omicron,
But shortly thereafter we were told that it did not make us sicker than Delta, it just spread really really fast. So with that people began to plan for an overdue Christmas and to get together with family. They had been cooped up long enough. They got on planes and gathered in large crowds for the Christmas holiday.
There were some warnings about how serious this could become if not taken more seriously. As we now enter the third week after Christmas, across North America and Europe we are now beginning to see what complacency looks like.
In each of the charts below from the John Hopkins COVID 19 dashboard are the stats as of January 5, 2022, when I compiled this information. The white numbers in the middle and the white chart on the right show you the number of deaths which in all cases have become steady and down from the peaks.
The red numbers and the red charts on the right show you the latest number of cases of COVID. In each of the charts for each region we are looking at, you can clearly see how the new Omicron is shooting through the roof once again even though death rates are not going through the roof at this same time.
The green numbers and the green charts show you the number of COVID vaccines that have been given. This includes the 1st, 2nd and 3rd doses. I am not going to say that the vaccines have helped to reduce the number of deaths, as the charts would indicate. I think most of you can figure that out on your own.
I am sharing this with you this week to show you what the red chart means and why those charts are the more terrifying ones to consider.
World COVID Cases January 5, 2022
USA COVID CASES JANUARY 5, 2022
UNITED KINGDOM COVID CASES JANUARY 5, 2022
CANADA COVID CASES JANUARY 5, 2022
I am going to now focus on Canada and on Toronto and Winnepeg in particular. I was told by my niece who works as an emergency nurse at a major hospital with her husband that they are severely short-staffed. Nurses used to look after four patients at a time to give them the best possible care. Now due to Omicron, the nurses are calling in sick, they are burnt out and leaving by the droves. The ratio of nurses to patients is normally 1 nurse to 4 patients, but now as of January 6, 2022, it is1 nurse to 10 patients. The halls are full of beds and patients. There is no room and no help for those who are sick.
Because of the shortage of nurses, the hospitals are declaring themselves as CODE Orange. This means that it is no longer safe for people to come to those facilities due to the shortage of staff. The Ambulances that service this same area have also declared a CODE Black which means they were down to one ambulance and or one driving per ambulance.
If someone were to call or two different calls came in, they would not be able to come to get you or send help to you. If you had a heart attack, you died. If they could come to get you with an ambulance then they could not take you to an emergency hospital because there was no staff available to treat you and again you die.
“Our members have been at this for 20 months. They’re exhausted and they continue to give and give and give, and I mean we’re going to be here until the end of this thing — but they’re definitely tired.”
“For the rest of the pandemic, we haven’t seen quarantine numbers like we’re seeing now,” Dave Wakely, the president of Peel Paramedic Union OPSEU Local 277, told CityNews Tuesday morning.
Wakely and the union said Peel Regional Paramedic Services declared the latest “code black” on Sunday, meaning there was just a single ambulance or less available to be dispatched on Sunday.
“Part of it has been call volume, part of it has been the pressures faced by our partners at the hospital and part of it has been paramedics who can’t attend work because they’re on quarantine,” he said.
Thursday, January 6, 2022, and the news this morning from Winnepeg is that due to the Omicron virus police staff are at home, sick. The Police Chief has declared a state of emergency due to the shortage. Almost 50% of the force is off sick.
With nurses and first responders as well as policemen all being off sick and our need for those very same services increasing at the same time, our whole service sector is in grave danger of collapsing from this tsunami of sickness.
Ontario and Canada are now shutting everything down once again. As this goes through our economy again, watch for supply chain disruptions to continue. We are already seeing empty shelves at the store each week we go shopping.
Here is another report from this week about the spike in the USA cases.
U.S. Logs Record 1 Million Virus Cases With Data Delay
More than 1 million people in the U.S. were diagnosed with Covid-19 on Monday as a tsunami of omicron swamps every aspect of daily American life.
The highly mutated variant drove U.S. cases to a record, the most — by a large margin — that any country has ever reported. Monday’s number is almost double the previous record of about 590,000 set just four days ago in the U.S., which itself was a doubling from the prior week.
It is also more than twice the case count seen anywhere else at any time since the pandemic began more than two years ago. The highest number outside the U.S. came during India’s delta surge, when more than 414,000 people were diagnosed on May 7, 2021.
The stratospheric numbers being posted in the U.S. come even as many Americans are relying on tests they take at home, with results that aren’t reported to official government authorities. That means the record is surely a significant under-estimate.
While surging cases haven’t yet translated into severe infections and skyrocketing deaths, their impact has been felt across the country as the newly infected isolate at home. The results are canceled flights, closed schools and offices, overwhelmed hospitals and strangled supply chains.
The data from Johns Hopkins University is complete as of midnight eastern time in Baltimore, and delays in reporting over the holidays may have played a role in the rising rates.
The surge is leading authorities to mull a revision of some measures put in place to help guide the nation through the latest phase of the outbreak. While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shortened the isolation period to five days for asymptomatic people who test positive for Covid-19, the agency may add that they should get a negative test result before venturing out again, officials said.
The outbreak is also causing companies to halt their return-to-office steps, with the likes of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. adopting the more cautious stance of encouraging staff to resume working from home at the start of the new year.
The silver lining is that deaths from Covid haven’t similarly soared. Early studies show the omicron variant spreads faster than earlier strains but causes milder symptoms.
The outlook for 2022 depends on whether the death toll follows cases and picks up in the weeks to come, or if evidence suggesting the omicron wave will be less severe holds up as more real-world data emerges.
Since 2005 Sightedmoon.com has been warning you about this very time and this plague that is now here!
We wrote about it and showed you the following information in our newsletters and then published this in our book on pages 23-32 in The Prophecies of Abraham book in 2010. Because of the many things we shared in that book, that book was nominated for a Nobel.
Here is the link to what we wrote in 2008 that led to us publishing the Prophecies of Abraham in 2010. This is News Letter 5844-008. I encourage you to read what we originally wrote way back then. We also used this same information for our first video tour with The Prophecy Club in 2008. That link is for the second half of our video which is about the third curse of pestilence. LOL I was a lot skinnier then than I am now.
Our Chronology has not changed in all this time. Our message remains the same. It has been refined as things became more clear. But it has not changed. The charts I now use were only developed in part for this speaking tour in March 2008. They were completed and published in 2009. They were refined in 2019 with us adding the count of the 70 weeks from Moses so you could see that. They are available on Amazon in a booklet form.
Let me now quote exactly what we wrote in 2010 in The Prophecies of Abraham. I have not edited this since I wrote it back then.
This Curse of Pestilence Is Added To The Previous Two
The Curse of Terror began in 1996. This is the first year in this last Jubilee Cycle. Terror was the head line news during this time. Seven years later, in the spring of 2003 at Aviv is the beginning of the next count of seven years. 2002-2003 was the Sabbath Year.
From 2003 to 2009 is the Second Curse of Drought. This has been the headline news during these years; severe weather, hurricanes wild fires, cyclones and tornadoes-all of which I discussed in my Newsletter 5844-007. This curse also continues until the end in 2033. As each year passes by, the droughts effect on our planet will be measured by the increasing famines that are already taking hold of the earth.
Pestilence is the third curse of Leviticus 26 and it will begin after 2010. Pestilence will run until the very end, again until 2033 and will be endured at the same time as Drought and Terror.
When I was working on the Jubilee message, I did a little experiment and I took the years that I believed were those years when a Pestilence would occur, such as 2010-2024. I said that it went until 2024, so that it included both the third curse from 2010-2016 and the fourth curse from 2017-2024 as it is also part of the next curse of the sword. It is also part of the last curse but I did not include those years here.
Because each curse is not a one year event, I said that it would last for 14 years because Pestilence is repeated in the Fourth Curse of Leviticus 26. I found that as I went back in history, almost all Pestilence outbreaks, such as the plague, cholera, typhus and other epidemics landed in this 14 year window. Not all, but the majority. I am referring to what I called the Israelite countries, the USA and the UK and her dominion.
Using Leviticus 26 as a guide and going back in time by 49 year cycles we get the following charts. It was not until I plotted these years of epidemics on the charts that I saw just how strong a pattern Yahweh was using in warning us. These years of epidemics are taken from Wikipedia and you can go there to confirm that I have not fudged on those years being reported as epidemics.
2010-2024 I Swine Flu and there is more to come 1961-1975 I 1960’s Cholera called El Tor

During this 14 year period of time in each of these Jubilee Cycles when the Third Curse of Pestilence was to be applied, I found that epidemics did occur during this time period. This does not preclude it from happening during other times. But during this timeframe it did take place. Just look at the charts that I have shared with you. Each of the Pestilences began in the 3rd Cycle of the Sabbatical Cycle and they all began in the first year of that Cycle.
This is why I have been warning you since I learned this in 2005. This is what you should expect starting in 2010; exactly what that Pestilence will be I am not sure.
In a conversation I had with a Doctor in December of 2009, who is also a reader of my News Letter, this Doctor (she does not want her name published) told me of a lecture she had attended at a medical seminar where one of the leading Academic Virologists expected and I quote “She explained that we must look back at history to know what will happen with pandemics in the future. A very interesting observation – in the view of what we believe now. The main issue was the fact that the medical fraternity was expecting a huge pandemic soon. It was time.”
Do you See a Pattern?
The Third Cycle is now here.
In our charts, we have been saying again since 2005 that war was going to come in the 4th Sabbatical Cycle. We expected that war to begin in 2020. COVID came in 2020, but the USA had a very divisive election and on January 6, 2021, as the newly elected President Biden was being signed into office, an insurrection took place on the capital and congress was invaded by a mob.
On January 6, 2022, the one year anniversary of that event and President Biden used patriotic rhetoric to justify the prosecution of those found guilty of this crime but also to condemn President Trump who as far I can tell is still planning on running again for President leading up to the 2024 election.
President Biden accused President Trump of fanning the flames of White Supremacy. It is obvious this was the lead attack in the next presidential campaign. This speech was given from Iowa.
The Iowa caucuses next February officially begin the nomination race. Iowa also is a swing state in presidential elections.
This is why all the Democratic presidential candidates are accusing President Trump of racist ideology. If they can do it enough it will stick.
I listened to most of President Biden’s speech. I may have missed some of it at the start and although I looked for it I could not find where President Biden condemned the Democrats who supported the taking over of cities in opposition to President Trump during his term in office. I could not find President Biden condemning the defunding of the police across America. Nor did I see President Biden condemning the BLM riots which led to burned-out cities and looting.
No, President Biden did not focus on Unity for the USA. He is focused on defeating the former President in the next election in November 2023 and all the other Democratic contenders spoke up at this same time saying similar things about President Trump.
I am a Canadian and we have a weak leader for a Prime Minister. I do not care who wins the next Presidential election. Nancy Pelosi could win for all I care, it does not matter. The end of this age is up.
My King is Yehovah. I am His Ambassador as are all of you. So make sure you do not forget that as the mayhem increases and the war of words and rhetoric escalates, who you serve. Serve your King Yehovah in all that you do. War is still coming. We have not changed our views on that. We actually think it has already begun starting in 2020 and so does the Guardian who posted this article this week.
One incident in 1861 that people refused to believe could happen, did and the results of this one event ripped the heart out of a nation. Is it happening again now. Are we already at war?
The next US civil war is already here – we just refuse to see it
January 4, 2021
The right has recognized that the system is in collapse, and it has a plan: violence and solidarity with treasonous far-right factions
10:00 UTC Tuesday, 04 January 2022
Nobody wants what’s coming, so nobody wants to see what’s coming.
On the eve of the first civil war, the most intelligent, the most informed, the most dedicated people in the United States could not see it coming. Even when Confederate soldiers began their bombardment of Fort Sumter, nobody believed that conflict was inevitable. The north was so unprepared for the war they had no weapons.
In Washington, in the winter of 1861, Henry Adams, the grandson of John Quincy Adams, declared that “not one man in America wanted the civil war or expected or intended it”. South Carolina senator James Chestnut, who did more than most to bring on the advent of the catastrophe, promised to drink all the blood spilled in the entire conflict. The common wisdom at the time was that he would have to drink “not a thimble”.
The United States today is, once again, headed for civil war, and, once again, it cannot bear to face it. The political problems are both structural and immediate, the crisis both longstanding and accelerating. The American political system has become so overwhelmed by anger that even the most basic tasks of government are increasingly impossible.
The legal system grows less legitimate by the day. Trust in government at all levels is in freefall, or, like Congress, with approval ratings hovering around 20%, cannot fall any lower. Right now, elected sheriffs openly promote resistance to federal authority. Right now, militias train and arm themselves in preparation for the fall of the Republic. Right now, doctrines of a radical, unachievable, messianic freedom spread across the internet, on talk radio, on cable television, in the malls.
The consequences of the breakdown of the American system is only now beginning to be felt. January 6 wasn’t a wake-up call; it was a rallying cry. The Capitol police have seen threats against members of Congress increase by 107%. Fred Upton, Republican representative from Michigan, recently shared a message he had received: “I hope you die. I hope everybody in your family dies.” And it’s not just politicians but anyone involved in the running of the electoral system. Death threats have become a standard aspect of the work life of election supervisors and school board members. A third of poll workers, in the aftermath of 2020, said they felt unsafe.
Under such conditions, party politics have become mostly a distraction. The parties and the people in the parties no longer matter much, one way or the other. Blaming one side or the other offers a perverse species of hope. “If only more moderate Republicans were in office, if only bipartisanship could be restored to what it was.” Such hopes are not only reckless but irresponsible. The problem is not who is in power, but the structures of power.
The United States has burned before. The Vietnam war, civil rights protests, the assassination of JFK and MLK, Watergate – all were national catastrophes which remain in living memory. But the United States has never faced an institutional crisis quite like the one it is facing now. Trust in the institutions was much higher during the 1960s. The Civil Rights Act had the broad support of both parties. JFK’s murder was mourned collectively as a national tragedy. The Watergate scandal, in hindsight, was evidence of the system working. The press reported presidential crimes; Americans took the press seriously. The political parties felt they needed to respond to the reported corruption.
You could not make one of those statements today with any confidence.
Two things are happening at the same time. Most of the American right have abandoned faith in government as such. Their politics is, increasingly, the politics of the gun. The American left is slower on the uptake, but they are starting to figure out that the system which they give the name of democracy is less deserving of the name every year.
An incipient illegitimacy crisis is under way, whoever is elected in 2022, or in 2024. According to a University of Virginia analysis of census projections, by 2040, 30% of the population will control 68% of the Senate. Eight states will contain half the population. The Senate malapportionment gives advantages overwhelmingly to white, non– college educated voters. In the near future, a Democratic candidate could win the popular vote by many millions of votes and still lose. Do the math: the federal system no longer represents the will of the American people.
The right is preparing for a breakdown of law and order, but they are also overtaking the forces of law and order. Hard right organization have now infiltrated so many police forces – the connections number in the hundreds – that they have become unreliable allies in the struggle against domestic terrorism.
Michael German, a former FBI agent who worked undercover against domestic terrorists during the 1990s, knows that the white power sympathies within police departments hamper domestic terrorism cases. “The 2015 FBI counter-terrorism guide instructs FBI agents, on white supremacist cases, to not put them on the terrorist watch list as agents normally would do,” he says. “Because the police could then look at the watchlist and determine that they are their friends.” The watchlists are among the most effective techniques of counter-terrorism, but the FBI cannot use them. The white supremacists in the United States are not a marginal force; they are inside its institutions.
Recent calls to reform or to defund the police have focused on officers’ implicit bias or policing techniques. The protesters are, in a sense, too hopeful. Activist white supremacists in positions of authority are the real threat to American order and security. “If you look at how authoritarian regimes come into power, they tacitly authorize a group of political thugs to use violence against their political enemies,” German says. “That ends up with a lot of street violence, and the general public gets upset about the street violence and says, ‘Government, you have to do something about this street violence,’ and the government says, ‘Oh my hands are tied, give me a broad enabling power and I will go after these thugs.’ And of course once that broad power is granted, it isn’t used to target the thugs. They either become a part of the official security apparatus or an auxiliary force.”
Anti-government patriots have used the reaction against Black Lives Matter effectively to build a base of support with law enforcement. “One of the best tactics was adopting the blue lives matter patch. I’m flabbergasted that police fell for that, that they actually support these groups,” German says. “It would be one thing if [anti-government patriots] had uniformly decided not to target police any more. But they haven’t. They’re still killing police. The police don’t seem to get it, that the people you’re coddling, you’re taking photographs with, are the same people who elsewhere kill.” The current state of American law enforcement reveals an extreme contradiction: the order it imposes is rife with the forces that provoke domestic terrorism.
Just consider: in 2019, 36% of active duty soldiers claimed to have witnessed “white supremacist and racist ideologies in the military”, according to the Military Times.
At this supreme moment of crisis, the left has divided into warring factions completely incapable of confronting the seriousness of the moment. There are liberals who retain an unjustifiable faith that their institutions can save them when it is utterly clear that they cannot. Then there are the woke, educational and political elites dedicated to a discourse of willed impotence. Any institution founded by the woke simply eats itself – see TimesUp, the Women’s March, etc – becoming irrelevant to any but a diminishing cadre of insiders who spend most of their time figuring out how to shred whoever’s left. They render themselves powerless faster than their enemies can.
What the American left needs now is allegiance, not allyship. It must abandon any imagined fantasies about the sanctity of governmental institutions that long ago gave up any claim to legitimacy. Stack the supreme court, end the filibuster, make Washington DC a state, and let the dogs howl, and now, before it is too late. The moment the right takes control of institutions, they will use them to overthrow democracy in its most basic forms; they are already rushing to dissolve whatever norms stand in the way of their full empowerment.
The right has recognized what the left has not: that the system is in collapse. The right has a plan: it involves violence and solidarity. They have not abjured even the Oath Keepers. The left, meanwhile, has chosen infighting as their sport.
There will be those who say that warnings of a new civil war is alarmist. All I can say is that reality has outpaced even the most alarmist predictions. Imagine going back just 10 years and explaining that a Republican president would openly support the dictatorship of North Korea. No conspiracy theorist would have dared to dream it. Anyone who foresaw, foresaw dimly. The trends were apparent; their ends were not.
It would be entirely possible for the United States to implement a modern electoral system, to restore the legitimacy of the courts, to reform its police forces, to root out domestic terrorism, to alter its tax code to address inequality, to prepare its cities and its agriculture for the effects of climate change, to regulate and to control the mechanisms of violence. All of these futures are possible. There is one hope, however, that must be rejected outright: the hope that everything will work out by itself, that America will bumble along into better times. It won’t. Americans have believed their country is an exception, a necessary nation. If history has shown us anything it’s that the world doesn’t have any necessary nations.
The United States needs to recover its revolutionary spirit, and I don’t mean that as some kind of inspirational quote. I mean that, if it is to survive, the United States will have to recover its revolutionary spirit. The crises the United States now faces in its basic governmental functions are so profound that they require starting over. The founders understood that government is supposed to work for living people, rather than for a bunch of old ghosts. And now their ghostly constitution, worshipped like a religious document, is strangling the spirit that animated their enterprise, the idea that you mold politics to suit people, not the other way around.
Does the country have the humility to acknowledge that its old orders no longer work? Does it have the courage to begin again? As it managed so spectacularly at the birth of its nationhood, the United States requires the boldness to invent a new politics for a new era. It is entirely possible that it might do so. America is, after all, a country devoted to reinvention.
Once again, as before, the hope for America is Americans. But it is time to face what the Americans of the 1850s found so difficult to face: The system is broken, all along the line. The situation is clear and the choice is basic: reinvention or fall.
“Two natures beat within my breast
The one is cursed, the one is blessed
The one I love, the one I hate.
The one I feed will dominate.”
Can you see the wisdom in this poem? Can you see that our very nature is comprised of two sides? In the Hebrew, these two sides are called the Yetzer HaRa and the Yetzer Tov. We need them both, these are two halves of a whole. We are not wholly human without both parts. So let’s look at these two halves, these two natures which need feeding.
The yetzer hara: the inclination or impulse to do evil, Yetzer HaTov is the good inclination or impulse. They are considered as an essential part of human nature and are evidence that humans have free will, free choice. Learning portion control in feeding these two natures is called Mussar in Hebrew.
The study of Mussar is the practice of learning to control the will, control that freedom of choice so that you choose not to feed that evil inclination, and choose to feed the good inclination within yourself. The book of Proverbs is a really good resource to help you in your Mussar study. The word Mussar is right there in the first lines of the book. King Solomon introduces the book he has written – or compiled – as being for the purposes of gaining Chokmah and Mussar – wisdom and instruction.
Pro 1:1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
Pro 1:2 to know wisdom and instruction; to recognize the words of understanding;
Pro 1:3 to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and uprightness;
Proverbs 1 goes on to warn us that it is foolish to despise or reject the Mussar of Yehovah
Pro 1:7 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
And likewise admonishes us to not reject or despise the Mussar of our parents.
Pro 1:8 My son, hear the instruction of your father, and forsake not the law of your mother;
Parents are the first Mussar teachers. We give our children teaching, instruction, correction, warning. We restrain them when necessary, and the purpose of it all is to teach our children to learn to restrain themselves from doing what is wrong and choosing to do what is right. Our teaching to our children starts out with much instruction and correction and eventually becomes more modelling and mentoring as they mature so that they take on that role of becoming self-disciplined without our input and they lean on Yehovah, their Heavenly Father rather than the earthly mother and father.
However, we have, in our society, bad parents, who themselves never studied Mussar and never learned to restrain themselves, to correct themselves, to choose what is right rather than following after their own hearts which lead them astray. This propagates itself into their own children and those children grow up without having been taught to self-regulate the free will which was given to them. Therefore sin abounds in the life of a person who has never been taught this practice of Mussar. But these broken earthly relationships between parent and child need not make us feel hopeless, for our Heavenly Father is always available.
Deu 6:4 Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.
Deu 6:5 And you shall love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Sh’ma Is’rael Y’hovah e’loheynu Y’hovah echad
Hear O Israel, Yehovah is your God, Yehovah is one.
V’ahavta et Yehovah, Eloheinu v’kol l’vavcha u’v’kol naf’sh’cha u’v’kol modecha.
You shall love Yehovah Your Elohim, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your resources.
We have all examined this first word, Shema – it means to hear and obey.
Strongs H8085 says to hear intelligently (often with implication of attention, obedience, etc) – attentively, call, gather together, carefully, certainly, consent, consider, to be content, declare, diligently, discern, give ear, to make a noise, to be obedient, obey, perceive, make a proclamation, publish, regard, report, shew forth, understand, witness.
In these verses, Deut 6:4-5 tells us that the way to LOVE Yehovah is to Shema Him. Relationships require this kind of listening and responding in order to develop that deep intimate trust and understanding, and our relationship with Yehovah is the ultimate relationship of our lives. Mussar is the way of living out this listening. It is the action behind the Shema.
Leviticus 26:18 tells us
 And if in spite of this you will not listen to me, then I will discipline you again sevenfold for your sins, (ESV)
Lev 26:18 And if you will not yet listen to Me for all this, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.(MKJV)
If we don’t discipline ourselves to listen and learn and do what Yehovah instructs us to do, there will be consequences, directly from Yehovah, sevenfold for our failure to heed His instructions. We can’t go back and blame our parents for failing to teach us to obey, learning to heed instruction has to come from within ourselves. If we choose to let an outside force discipline, chastise, correct us, we can expect the consequence to be sevenfold what the failure on our part was.
This word Mussar. It’s a new Hebrew word to many of us, not part of our usual Hebrew vocabulary, so let’s look at the depth of its meaning.
From Klein’s Etymological dictionary we find the following definitions:
- Mussar מיסר means founded or established or strength.
Strongs number H4148 also adds Chastisement, reproof, warning, instruction, restraint, bond, check, correction, discipline, doctrine, and rebuke.
Other related words are:
- Yasar יסר means to chasten, admonish, or discipline
- Asar אסר means to bind, imprison, bound, fettered, harnessed, arrested, forbidden, prohibit, tied, or to bind to an obligation.
- Asarah אסרה means a harness as in a horse harness
- Soor סור means to turn aside, to deport, to come to an end, ceased, removed, to stack up or heap up, separated
- Seer סיר means to visit, to tour, to reconnoiter
- Sarar סרר means to be stubborn or be rebellious
All these related words play into the meaning of what the study of Mussar is. When we discipline our will, follow instructions, harness the desires of the heart, when we bind and loose – bind the yetzer hara which curses us, and lose the yetzer hatov which blesses us; this is the value of studying Mussar and implementing its teachings into our thoughts and actions.
The study of Mussar goes back to Babylonian times. In the 10th Century, a sage named Sa’adia Ga’on published a book entitled Book of Beliefs and Opinions, with a chapter called “How a Person Ought to Behave in the World”. This is the original study of Psychology or Human Nature. In the city of Kelm, Lithuania, the Mussar emphasized the power of the mind. It emphasized taking time to be exact and unclutter the mind. In Slabodka, the emphasis was more on behaviour, to conduct ourselves as a people made in the image of God. You can see how Yeshua is an example to us in Mussar, for He is the perfected one. Yeshua is the very essence of Mussar. He shows us how to control ourselves and not feed that evil inclination.
There is no one way to study Mussar. Each one of us is an individual, therefore practicing self-discipline (Mussar) will look different for each of us.
Mussar is a practice. We may not be great at it right now. But little steps taken today to develop this self-discipline will grow in time. Daily steps will accumulate and change our outcomes over time. Going back to that poem at the beginning…
“Two natures beat within my breast
The one is cursed, the one is blessed
The one I love, the one I hate.
The one I feed will dominate.”
Which nature will you feed today? Feeding the good inclination is the harder choice. We naturally want to choose the easier path, but the harder path has the greater blessing, the long-term blessing. The evil inclination may give us the short-term blessing, but that blessing may turn into a curse, a trap.
In the morning service from the siddur is this prayer. In which we recognize our own evil inclination and ask Yehovah to help us to not fall prey to our own Yetzer Hara, nor that of another person.
- Blessed are You, Yehovah our God, King of the universe, Who removes sleep from my eyes and slumber from my eyelids. And may it be Your will, Yehovah, our God, and the God of our forefathers, that You accustom us to study Your Torah and attach us to Your commandments. Do not bring us into the power of error, nor into the power of transgression and sin, nor into the power of challenge, not into the power of scorn. Let not the Evil Inclination dominate us. Distance us from an evil person and an evil companion. Attach us to the Good inclination and to good deeds and compel our Evil Inclination to be subservient to You. Grant us today and everyday grace, kindness, and mercy in Your eyes and in the eyes of all who see us, and bestow beneficent kindnesses upon us. Blessed are You, Yehovah, Who bestows beneficent kindnesses upon His people Israel.
This prayer is immediately followed by this prayer, which recognizes that others do not always practice Mussar.
- May it be Your will, Yehovah, my God, and the God of my forefathers, that You rescue me today and every day from brazen men and from brazenness, from an evil man, an evil companion, an evil neighbour, an evil mishap, the destructive spiritual impediment, a harsh trial and a harsh opponent, whether he is a member of the covenant or whether he is not a member of the covenant.
The best time to start practicing Mussar is right now. What choices do you have to make for your day today, what is on your schedule or to do list? Are you working through your list? Do you have a list? If not, consider making one. Keep this list handy and work towards achieving the things on your list. Every time you turn away from that list, ask yourself if this distraction or interruption is feeding the Yetzer HaRa or the Yetzer Ha Tov. Take inventory today. Keep score. How many times did you feed your evil inclination over your good inclination? How many times did you choose good over bad? Can you take stock of all of this and make a personal decision that tomorrow you will do better? This is practicing Mussar.
Another way to practice Mussar is to take a specific character trait and look at your own life and see how you are exemplifying that character trait. Is there room for improvement? How have you expressed this trait in the past, how could you use self-discipline in the future to build this character trait?
Reading and studying Torah must change us. If all we do in studying the Torah is learn commandments, and perform works, those works are dead if they do not draw us into the fullness of who we are created to be. If our character is not changing and becoming more and more like Yehovah, we study for head knowledge and not heart-changing knowledge. The goal is to become a disciplined disciple who reflects to the world the character of God.
