Shabbat Shalom to The Royal Family of Yehovah,
“The Shemitah year of 2016”
We are now in the 9th month of the year. Have you noticed that the Gregorian calendar calls this month the month of November? In Latin Novem means 9th. December has the Latin name Decem in it which is for the 10th month. September has Septem in it from the Latin which means 7 and October has Octo from the Latin for the 8th Month.
Originally all of the months were just called by the order they came, 1 through 12 in our bibles. With the controversy this year we are stating this to be the 9th month while most others state it to be the 8th month. Yet even in the Gregorian calendar the order of the months matches up with the time of the year Yehovah has shown us.
It is so very important for each of us to keep the Sabbath and Holy Days at the proper time in order to meet with Yehovah when He said to meet with Him. The Sabbath begins at sunset Friday. It is setting earlier now. Some of you will have to leave work early. Work through lunch or stay late on some of the other days of the week.
Some are trying to tell you the Sabbath is only the day part in order for them to justify working late on Friday or going out clubbing or shopping Friday night. Do not fall for the lies.
If it is not important that we keep the Sabbath Holy or at the right time or that we keep the Holy Days at the right time, then we all might as well go back to keeping Sunday. If it is important to Yehovah, then you should make it important to yourself.
Next year will once again quite possibly prove to be a controversial year for many who follow Yehovah.
Yehovah also said we are to keep this year as the 7th Year of rest. We are in the 9th month of this Sabbatical year. It is not over yet. In the Southern Hemisphere, planting season has begun but it is still the Sabbatical year. There are no exceptions in Lev 25, whether you live in the northern or southern hemisphere. You either obey and keep it or you disobey and plant before the month of Aviv and risk the curses of Lev 26.
The Sabbatical year ends when Aviv begins. Will that be Feb 27, 2017 or will it be March 28, 2017?
In the coming weeks we will once again walk through all of these teachings so that you yourself will know and not have to rely on following me or anyone else. After all, if you are going to be a King in the Kingdom of Yehovah, you will be expected to lead in this understanding as well. If you’re going to be a Priest in the Kingdom, then you are going to have to teach this, so you need to learn it and understand it.
We read the Torah out loud in Jerusalem this year. We posted the video to give you some of the highlights of us doing it. Yet I am very disappointed that I have not heard of anyone, anywhere else reading the Torah as we are commanded. Not one report of anyone else having done so at any of the Feast sites you went to.
Again I am going to share with you the commandments for the Sabbatical year, maybe each week until you have it memorized. The Sabbatical year began with the sighting of the moon on the evening of March 10, 2016.
1) Do not plant
2) Do not harvest
Lev 25:3 You shall sow your field six years, and you shall prune your vineyard six years, and gather in the fruit of it. 4 But in the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of rest to the land, a Sabbath for Jehovah. You shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard. 5 You shall not reap that which grows of its own accord of your harvest, neither gather the grapes of your undressed vine. It is a year of rest to the land.
3) You can eat what grows on it’s own.
Lev 25:6 And the Sabbath of the land shall be food for you, for you and for your servant, and for your slave woman and for your hired servant, and for your stranger who stays with you, 7 and for your cattle, and for the beast that is in your land, shall all the increase of it be for food.
4) Stock up on food in the 6th year.
Lev 25:20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our increase! 21 Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
5) Forgive any debts people owed to you by Sukkot.
Deut 15:1 At the end of every seven years you shall make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release. Every man who has a loan to his neighbor shall release it. He shall not exact it from his neighbor, or from his brother, because it is called Jehovah’s release. 3 You may exact it from a foreigner, but your hand shall release that which is yours with your brother,
6) Read the Torah out loud at Sukkot so all can hear it being read. Basically what you need to read is Deuteronomy. I would then read Exodus 19- to the end. And Lev 23 and 25.
We have linked you to the News Letter with the laws you are to read just by clicking the link above.
Deut 31:10 And Moses commanded them, saying: At the end of seven years, at the set time of the year of release, in the Feast of Tabernacles, 11 when all Israel has come to appear before Jehovah your God in the place which He shall choose, you shall read this Law before all Israel in their hearing. 12 Gather the people, men and women and the little ones, and your stranger who is within your gates, so that they may hear and that they may learn and fear Jehovah your God, and be careful to do all the words of this Law, 13and that their sons who have not known may hear and learn to fear Jehovah your God, as long as you live in the land where you go over Jordan to possess it.
And by now you should also have completed all your obligations to the widows, orphan, and Levites from your tithes for the 6th year that is now past.
Deut 14:28 At the end of three years you shall bring forth all the tithe of your increase the same year, and shall lay it up inside your gates. 29 And the Levite, because he has no part nor inheritance with you, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, who are inside your gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied, so that Jehovah your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.
Ask Yehovah to bless you for having completed this task and then ask Him to bless your efforts as you keep the Sabbatical year and keep your food safe from decay or flood or hydro blackouts and from scavengers like rodents. Ask Him to protect it and to bless you for keeping His commandments.
Deu 26:12 When you have made an end of tithing all the tithes of your increase the third year, the year of tithing, and have given it to the Levite, the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow (that they may eat inside your gates and be filled), 13 then you shall say before Jehovah your God, I have brought away the holy things out of my house, and also have given them to the Levite, and to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all Your commandments which You have commanded me. I have not broken Your commandments, neither have I forgotten. 14 I have not eaten of it in my mourning, neither have I put any of it away for unclean use, nor have I given of it for the dead. I have listened to the voice of Jehovah my God, and have done according to all that You have commanded me. 15 Look down from Your holy dwelling, from Heaven, and bless Your people Israel and the land which You have given us, as You swore to our fathers, a land that flows with milk and honey. 16 Today Jehovah your God has commanded you to do these statutes and judgments. You therefore shall keep and do them with all your heart and with all your soul. 17 You have today said that Jehovah is your God, and that you would walk in His ways, and keep His statutes and His commandments and His judgments, and listen to His voice. 18 And Jehovah has taken you today to be His peculiar people, as He has promised you, and to keep all His commandments, 19 and to make you high above all nations which He has made, in praise and in name and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to Jehovah your God, even as He has spoken.
May Yehovah bless each and every one of you for keeping the Sabbatical year commandment and breaking the curses that are upon our nations because we have not kept them in the past.
“In the Mail this week”
So thankful to see your news letter back once again. Was very excited to see it when I checked my email today.
The election was crazy. I felt a very heavy feeling watching things come to pass. Keeps me wanting to stay close to Yhvh and the truth.
The link you shared with me about the Constellations was awesome. Amazing to have that knowledge. I know that will come in so handy when sharing this information with others. Thank you.
Have a wonderful Sabbath

You were missed.
Greetings, I visited Israel last month during Sukkot, trip organized by Don Esposito. I don’t know if you know him, he is the Overseer of Congregation of Yahweh Jerusalem. I am happy that he welcomed me and hosted me for 10 days, but we didn’t visit many places and I realized there are various fake places posing to be true.
I am interested in visiting again and I would like to join your team next year.
I also would like to meet you so that I can know much about your ministry. I am interested in learning a lot.
May YHWH bless you and the work you are doing at this end time.
lovely to hear your thoughts again. Herding cats may look good on Resume.
In my prayers for strength and financing and for a calendar that pleases Elohim to be found amongst brethren to the bringing of peace and love of the Kingdom in pure worship and not doctrines of men however well meaning.
May we have loving forbearance as all are gathered into greater and greater understanding of the Love for Elohim.
Fiona BHi Joe,
It was great reading your new newsletter and hearing from you again. Your day by day journal of our trip was wonderful. I relived all the wonderful memories of our trip together. It was an amazing time and you did an awesome job leading our group. We learned so much and are now passing it on to others. Each member of our family was changed because of our trip to Israel. Your knowledge of both the Scriptures and history are amazing and we were blessed by seeing it all come to life in Israel. This is a trip none of us will ever forget.Daniel is already talking about trying to go on your trip in March. I would love to go too.
Blessings of Shalom
“Draining the Swamp”
Last week I wrote to you and mentioned the Trump win in the US elections. We said:
World events continue to race towards the end of this age, and most are still playing religion and religious games. You need to read The 2300 Days of Hell especially now after the recent US elections.
The Liberal voice was heard loud and clear this election. They carried the popular vote but lost the election. The majority of the people of the US voted liberal. They voted for more Islamic immigration, more abortion, more LGBTQ rights and more of the same way of life they have come to know. And the Liberal nations around the world hated the fact that Trump won. Why? What is going on? This too we will share with you in the weeks to come.
I then went on to say the following in the article, as I began last week’s News Letter:
Your teachers have had enough of the lack of civility that is no longer shown to one another. You can see it so plainly in the U.S. election, the lack of respect they have for each other and for letting others voice their views. The Americans now have the President they deserve.
In response to this one person wrote:
Hello. The president we deserve?
There is a huge difference between Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump and while Mr. Trump may have had a potty mouth in his past he does not exude evil as Mrs. Clinton does. Had she been elected I would’ve been preparing myself for the guillotine.
Trump has surrounded himself with Christians. In my lifetime – 53 years – I have never seen a US president be so bold. On many fronts. He is taking on the global forces that did away with JFK. He may get rid of the Federal Reserve and do away with their printing press.
He just came out and said he wants to get rid of abortion – completely. And while I don’t trust a church that clutches the paperwork for it’s 501(C)3 tax exempt status tighter than it’s Bible, which is most churches in this country, Trump has said he will get rid of that device invented by LBJ in the 60s to control the pulpit and shut them up. Unfortunately it worked. I guess the pastors have been serving mammon. That’s giving them the benefit of the doubt, my other thought is that they are knowingly serving the kingdom of darkness, which makes me sick.
Trump’s election is apparent evidence from Yahuwah that He has provided the US with a stay of execution, a delay in judgment. Hopefully those of us who have been praying won’t get all comfortable and completely relax.
I know you have a different opinion and honestly I haven’t been able to figure out your reasoning of how you arrived at these dates. I’m sure it’s too complicated to explain it to me in a few paragraphs. I am not afraid and would actually be honored to join the fifth seal martyrs should that happen in the next few years.
I appreciate what you do and regardless whether things unfold as you’ve said will give you a hug on the other side of eternity. But if you look past all the rhetoric and noise I can assure you there is a huge difference between the two flawed candidates.
May YHWH bless you and keep you,
First of all this election is prophetic and we will get to that in a moment.
One of the biggest things about this election that I heard over and over from the start was that the US citizens did not have a good leader to choose from. They had to choose from two leaders that most people disdained.
They had to choose from Mrs. Clinton, who was a continuation of the Obama legacy and all the liberal mainstream dogma that is destroying the United States and the world, or they could choose from a bombastic man that had no political track record. Yet Donald Trump spoke those things that the people were thinking, but were prevented from saying out loud due to political correctness.
For the record, I liked Mr. Trump because he was not politically correct. He said what needed to be said and damned the torpedoes.
Most Americans, and most Christians, believe that when they go to vote in elections they are actually determining who their leaders will be.
The problem with that notion is that biblically nothing could be further from the truth. They have forgotten what the word of Yehovah says.
Pro 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of Jehovah as the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He will.
Pro 16:9 A man’s heart plans his way, but Jehovah directs his steps.
Isa 46:9 Remember former things from forever; for I am God, and no other is God, even none like Me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from the past things which were not done, saying, My purpose shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure;
Psa_47:7 For God is King of all the earth; sing praises with understanding.
Psa_74:12 For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth,
Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject to the higher authorities. For there is no authority but of God; the authorities that exist are ordained by God. 2 So that the one resisting the authority resists the ordinance of God; and the ones who resist will receive judgment to themselves. 3 For the rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the bad. And do you desire to be not afraid of the authority? Do the good, and you shall have praise from it.
John 19:11 Jesus answered, You could have no authority against Me unless it were given to you from above. Therefore he who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.
Pro 8:15 By me kings reign and princes decree justice. 16 Princes rule by me, and nobles, all the judges of the earth.
Dan 2:20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. 21 And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding. 22 He reveals the deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.
Act 13:21 And afterward they asked for a king. And God gave them Saul the son of Kish, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, for forty years. 22 And when He had removed him, He raised up David to them to be their king; to whom He also witnessed and said, I have found David the son of Jesse to be a man after My own heart, who shall fulfill all My will.
Psa 75:6 For lifting up comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge; He puts down one and sets up another.
Dan 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones, so that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He will, and sets up over it the lowest of men.
Those of you who understand the scriptures will then know and understand that it was Yehovah who brought down Hilary Clinton and raised up Donald Trump against all odds, against all the lack of support of the Republican party, against all the liberal-slanted media naysayers, against the LGBTQ and pro choice groups, against the Black Lives Matter groups and the illegal aliens in the USA. It was Yehovah who appointed Mr. Trump to the Presidency of the United States of America, not the people of those states.
And to all of those conspiracy teaching idiots, who stated and claimed and argued that Mr. Obama was the anti-christ and going to create martial law and stay in power, wake up. Stop reading the crap that is leading you away from the truth of the Torah. Once again I have been proven right and your false teachings that you have been sharing and telling others about have shown you to be a false witness. So wake up and stop sharing or reading the Alex Jones posts and others like him.
Uh oh, have I stepped into a cow paddy here? Did Donald Trump tweet Alex Jones after the November elections? Does Alex Jones have Donald Trump’s ear? It would appear so. So now you have a president who listens to conspiracy teachings and those who put out those lies, which means he too can be swayed to make decisions based on faulty and non-factual information. Yes, the USA has now gotten the President they deserve, not the one that they need to return to Yehovah. This same story has played out in the bible a few times.
1Sa 8:1 And it happened when Samuel was old, he made his sons judges over Israel. 2 And the name of his first-born was Joel, and the name of his second was Abiah, judges in Beer-sheba. 3 And his sons did not walk in his ways, but turned aside after ill gain and took bribes and perverted judgment. 4 And all the elders of Israel gathered themselves and came to Samuel to Ramah. 5 And they said to him, Behold, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. 6 But the thing was evil in the eyes of Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed to Jehovah. 7 And Jehovah said to Samuel, Listen to the voice of the people in all that they say to you. For they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even until this day, works with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods, so they do also to you. 9 And now listen to their voice. Only, you shall surely protest solemnly to them, and show them the kind of king who shall reign over them. 1 And there was a man of Benjamin, and his name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power. 2 And he had a son named Saul, a young and handsome one. And there was not a man among the sons of Israel more handsome than he, being taller than any of the people from his shoulder and upward.
Today people have chosen a man to lead them based on the appearance, in the same way Israel did when they chose Saul to be King over them. They did not consult Yehovah, no… they rejected Yehovah then as they are again doing today. President Trump is not going to save you.
1Sa 9:15 And Jehovah had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying, 16 Tomorrow about this time I will send you a man out of the land of Benjamin. And you shall anoint him to be leader over My people Israel, so that he may save My people out of the hand of the Philistines. For I have looked on My people because their cry has come to Me.
When you accept the truth of what the Scriptures teach on Yehovah’s sovereignty over the earth, you will come to two conclusions as a citizen:
Your civic duty is to be obedient to Yehovah no matter what the outcome, since He is sovereign over the outcome anyway.
We get the very leaders we deserve.
About 86 percent of Americans claim to be Christians. Yet pornography generates more revenue a year than all the teams in the NFL, NBA and MLB combined. Yet 3,000 babies are slaughtered at the abortion mills every day.
Our leaders in the USA and Canada and many other countries are also actively promoting the UNEP agenda of supporting the LGBTQ and this year it was transgendered washrooms.
Now we’re getting the very leader we deserve.
The popular vote for all intents and purposes was dead even. 62,972,226 for Trump and 62,277,750 for Clinton. Half the population supports abortion or pro-choice, and half is pro-life. Half support LGBTQ and all the antics of this minority group, and half do not support them. Half support open doors for any immigrant to come and stay, and half want the borders reinstalled. And yet 86% of America claim to be Christians.
“The Daniel Timeline Lie still being promoted”
This week I have watched and heard from many of the “prophets” all claiming what the Trump victory means for Israel and the world, and how it is the start of the coming or return of Jesus.
Was Barack Obama not heralded as the messiah when he first took office way back in 2008? Then, shortly thereafter he was vilified as the anti-christ by many of the conspiracy teachers and their followers.
Let me remind you of a false teaching that is still being promoted, even though they no longer mention the title.
It is the Daniel Timeline teaching taught by Dewy Burton in 2005. It was then made into a video by Dewy Burton back in Oct 31, 2012. Monte Judah and others follow this teaching, which has 2010 as the last 7 years of this age and 2013 to 2017 as the great tribulation or last 3 1/2 years.
They have based this teaching on the following facts:
In 1917 the Balfour declaration was written giving the Jews rights in Palestine. The Daniel Timeline then goes on to say that the war of 1967 in which Israel won back Jerusalem, The Golan Heights, Gaza and Sinai Peninsula. Because these two historical events are 50 years apart, the Daniel Timeline theory assumes that the end of the age is then 50 years later in 2017. And 2017 is also 70 years after the state of Israel was declared in 1947. Some of these “prophets” are using Jeremiah 29:10 and mixing it with Daniel 9:24’s 70 weeks. Go and read these two scriptures and see if you can see what they are saying. You have to twist them out of context so hard.
First of all, we have shown you that a Jubilee cycle is not 50 years. It is 49 years with the 50th year and the 1st year being the same year. We have also proven beyond all doubt from your own bible, that the last Jubilee year was 1996. The next one will be 2045. We have also proven beyond all doubt that this current Jubilee cycle from 1996-2045 is the 120th Jubilee cycle. The last one for this age. Just look at 2 Kings 19:29 and know that this took place in 701 and 700 B.C. Now just count from those years.
The Daniel Timeline is a false teaching. It made sense to those who taught it at the time because they did not know nor understand the Jubilee cycles which are clearly understood by anyone who is willing to look at them today. Yet many brethren still expect 2017 to be the Jubilee year and the return of Jesus.
I have heard Monte’s latest prophecy update:
President Trump is going to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
President Trump along with President Putin are going to support the building of the altar on the Temple Mount.
President Trump is a strong supporter of Israel and is not going to cave in to UN laws against Israel.
Some are even saying that Trump is fulfilling the role of Cyrus in Isaiah 45 because Trump is the 45th President.
Even though many of these people believe that 2017 is the Jubilee year without facts to support them, they did not keep the 49th year as a Sabbatical year, which according them would have been 2016.
And now they are claiming the tribulation begins in 2017 and goes for 3 1/2 years which ironically brings them to the summer of 2020. Shavuot 2020 is when I have been showing people that the sword is to come. But this is not the tribulation and not even close to it. Our understanding is that the tribulation begins in 2030-2033.
Another prophecy group is telling us that Trump matches the Ezekiel 38 prophecy and for a gift of $30-$100 you too can learn this unheard of information that only they have. As I read these things, I cannot help but think of the many people who will not…they absolutely will not obey the commandments of Yehovah and yet they speculate about His coming. Most do not keep the Sabbath, many of those who do keep the Sabbath do not keep the Holy Days. Most of those who keep the Holy Days do so according to man’s schedule and not Yehovah’s. And of these that do keep the Holy Days most of them do not keep the Sabbatical year, nor even try, whether they be in the land of Israel or not. Because they do not have a love for the truth of Yehovah, Yehovah will give them over to the delusional conspiracy lies they have come to love.
2Th 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, 9 whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, 12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.
“Looking at the Facts”
So let us now stop reading all the conspiracy theorists and let’s just look at the headline news. Let’s take a step back and just look at what the world is doing or saying now that President Elect Trump is just over one month from taking the reigns of power in one of the most powerful nations on earth.
On June 23, 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave Europe in a stunning upset vote. No one thought it could happen, but it did. Now Britain is leaving Europe. The people of Britain wanted to stop the flood of immigrants to their land. Yet the EU was telling them to take more and then Germany invited all those millions of Muslims to come on up and live with them and all of Europe.
Britain said enough and wanted to have control over its army and its money. Germany, as the leading powerhouse in the EU, was upset with Britain and with the EU as well. Now read what the Germans are saying about the election of President-elect Trump.
European leaders hate Donald Trump. So much so that across the Continent, they broke with protocol and involved themselves in another nation’s election — in order to condemn him.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, they love. Her husband was awarded the Charlemagne Prize for his contribution to European unity. The two Clintons were both strong supporters in the breakup of Yugoslavia initiated by Germany and the Vatican.
Mr. Trump’s election was met with shock, and then muted congratulations. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Europe’s de facto leader, offered only conditional cooperation. She listed the values that she said bound America together: “democracy, freedom, respect for the law and for human dignity, regardless of ancestry, skin color, religion, gender, sexual orientation or political leanings.”
“On the basis of these values, I offer the future president of the United States of America, Donald Trump, close cooperation,” she said.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier was a little less diplomatic:
“We hope that we are not facing greater instability in international politics. During his campaign, Trump was critical not just of Europe, but also of Germany. I believe we must prepare for American foreign policy becoming less predictable. We must prepare for a situation in which America will be tempted to make decisions on its own more often.
I don’t want to sugarcoat it: Nothing will be easier and much will be more difficult.
Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel warned: “Trump is a warning to us as well. He is the harbinger of a new authoritarian and chauvinistic international movement.”
Justice Minister Heiko Maas was even blunter: “The world won’t end. It will only get crazier.”
The chairman of Germany’s parliamentary Committee on Foreign Policy Norbert Röttgen said Mr. Trump was “completely inadequate” to be president. “That Trump’s election could lead to the worst estrangement between America and Europe since the Vietnam War would be the least of the damage,” he said.
European officials also made their displeasure clear. “I’m not happy about it,” European Parliament President Martin Schultz said. “But on the other hand, I also believe that the political system in the U.S. is strong enough to be able to deal with a president like Trump.”
Europe’s leaders fear that America’s foreign policy could change radically under President Trump, leaving Europe in a precarious situation. “Americans didn’t just choose a divisive new president-elect on Tuesday, they voted out the old world order,” wrote Mark Mackinnon, reporting from London for the Globe and Mail.
“The certainties that underpin our current global system—the one in place since the end of the Second World War—are no longer guaranteed after the electoral earthquake in the United States.”
“He’s totally unpredictable,” said András Simonyi, former Hungarian ambassador to the U.S. and expert on transatlantic relations at John Hopkins University. “He has zero experience in foreign policy, and we don’t know who he’s listening to. I know several of his advisers, and I don’t know who he really listens to.”
The Wall Street Journal described the reason for the unease in an article titled “Trump’s Victory Shakes Europe’s Geopolitical Order”:
For the second time in less than five months, European leaders have woken up to a vote that has shaken the Continent’s geopolitical order.
If anything, the election of Donald Trump was more shattering than Britain’s decision to leave the European Union.
The votes in two of the world’s most open and market-oriented economies both suggested dissatisfaction with globalization and economic integration. Mr. Trump’s election has raised questions about whether the U.S. will continue to extend the unconditional security guarantee that has underpinned European prosperity since World War II…
In his campaign speeches, Mr. Trump has provoked nervousness in Central and Eastern Europe by calling into question American support for the Western alliance and with his embrace of Russian leader Vladimir Putin. He has suggested he favors increasing trade barriers to protect American industries…
Another worry is that economic uncertainty generated by his election could threaten Europe’s still-faltering recovery…
Mr. Trump’s success, like the Brexit vote, has been widely interpreted in Europe as a victory for the politics of cultural identity. Ahead of elections next year in France, Germany and the Netherlands, European governments are looking over their shoulders at their own anti-establishment parties.
Among the first to congratulate Mr. Trump was presidential contender Marine Le Pen of France’s National Front…
The Wall Street Journal pointed out another problem:
… In seeking to navigate relations with the new administration, European leaders face another challenge: They don’t know the president-elect or his entourage.
They have been suspicious of his rhetoric and have held Mr. Trump at arm’s length during the campaign. Mr. Trump’s sudden emergence into the political arena also means he doesn’t have a team of well-known Republicans to whom they can reach out—though that may change as he builds a foreign-policy team.
Europe has relied on America for its protection since World War II. The foundation of its security and prosperity is called into question at the same time that the eurozone seems to be falling apart. No wonder Europe’s leaders are panicking. And they are turning to Germany.
“With the U.S. election results, the pressure on Germany has increased dramatically,” freelance expert on international affairs Olaf Boehnke told the Local.
“There is a need of leadership, and if the U.S. will not be the leader for the time being, then everybody looks to other leading nations or those with the potential,” he said. “It is up to Merkel and to Berlin to step up at least for the European crowd and take on much more responsibility than she already has.”
One of the biggest ways Europe now looks to Germany for leadership is in the military.
German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said that Mr. Trump’s victory was a “deep shock.” “Europe has to prepare for the fact that it must provide for itself,” she said—noting that that would mean spending more money on defense.
Germany-Foreign-Policy.com noted, “Demands from within Berlin’s foreign policy establishment that Germany enhance its position within the framework of the transatlantic alliance have become louder over the past few days and weeks”—even before Trump’s election.
Let me now share with you another news article, albeit it is from last year. I am going to let you read it and then we will begin to share our thoughts.

Citing wasted tax dollars and attacks on the constitutionally guaranteed liberties of the American people, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.; shown) introduced a bill to restore U.S. sovereignty and withdraw from the United Nations. The effort to de-fund and exit the UN comes amid growing scrutiny of the global organization, often ridiculed as the “dictators club,” and myriad mega-scandals swirling around it. However, despite ever-growing support in Congress for restoring U.S. sovereignty by withdrawing from the UN over the years, the legislation still faces an uphill battle.
In a statement last week announcing the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2015 (H.R. 1205), Rep. Rogers noted that many of his constituents in East Alabama would likely agree with his position that U.S. government participation in the UN should end immediately. “The U.N. continues to prove it’s an inefficient bureaucracy and a complete waste of American tax dollars,” the congressman said, echoing widespread concerns about the international outfit expressed across America and worldwide.
“Why should the American taxpayer bankroll an international organization that works against America’s interests around the world?” asked Rep. Rogers. “The time is now to restore and protect American sovereignty and get out of the United Nations.” He cited attacks on U.S. liberties as a key motivation for the legislation.
Several other liberty-minded congressmen have also sponsored the legislation including constitutionalist Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), Rep. John Duncan (R-Tenn.), Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.), and Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.). A previous bill to withdraw from the UN introduced in the last Congress by then-Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) garnered nine co-sponsors. With the regime ruling Communist China increasingly taking a leading role at the UN, among numerous other concerns, opposition to the global body is expected to continue growing.
If approved, the legislation would repeal the UN Participation Act of 1945 and shutter the U.S. government’s mission to the outfit. It would also “terminate all membership by the United States in the United Nations, and in any organ, specialized agency, commission, or other formally affiliated body of the United Nations.” That specifically includes UNESCO, which President Ronald Reagan withdrew from, along with the World Health Organization, the UN Environment Program (UNEP), and more. It would end all U.S. involvement in all UN conventions and agreements, too.
The proposed law, introduced in numerous legislative session of Congress in recent decades, would also end all funding to the UN and all of its agencies — with the estimated savings to taxpayers reaching into the billions per year, and potentially even more. The legislation also aims to end all U.S. military involvement in UN military “peacekeeping” schemes and ban U.S. troops from serving under UN command. Finally, the bill would seek to evict the UN and its dictator-infested headquarters from U.S. soil. It would also ban any use of American government facilities by the global outfit, while stripping UN bureaucrats and dignitaries of diplomatic immunity.
Rep. Rogers pointed to a wide range of reasons why the U.S. should dump the UN. “Although the United States makes up almost a quarter of the U.N.’s annual budget, the U.N. has attempted a number of actions that attack our rights as U.S. citizens,” he explained. “To name a few, these initiatives include actions like the Law of the Sea Treaty, which would subject our country to internationally-based environmental mandates, costing American businesses more money, or the U.N.’s work to re-establish an international regulation regime on global warming which would heavily target our fossil fuels.”
Indeed, especially in recent years, the UN has become increasingly brazen in attacking the rights of Americans, and even the U.S. Constitution that enshrines those unalienable rights. From attacks on free speech and gun rights to assaults on America’s federalist system of government and states’ rights, the UN and its member regimes have become increasingly aggressive. Now, the UN is working on a series of major schemes that would undermine even the principles upon which the United States was founded, much of it under the guise of promoting pseudo-human rights and pseudo-environmentalism.
Rep. Rogers took special aim at a UN gun treaty that has become a lightning rod for bipartisan opposition across America. “The U.N. has also offered a potential Arms Trade Treaty which would threaten our Second Amendment rights and impose regulations on our gun manufacturers, who are already facing regulations and pressure from the Obama Administration,” Rogers explained. That treaty, ATT for short, would purport to require gun registration and eventually strict controls, with the ultimate aim of disarming civilians.
The UN’s perceived anti-Israel bias, which some critics have even dubbed systemic anti-Semitism, also attracted criticism from Rep. Rogers. “Lastly, the U.N. does not support Israel and voted to grant the Palestinian Authority ‘non-member state’ permanent observer status,” he argued. “Anyone who is not a friend to our ally Israel, is not a friend to the United States.” Even some globalist neo-con senators such as Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have threatened the UN over its apparent hostility to Israel, and the outrage continues to grow.
For the reasons cited above, “among others,” Rep. Rogers said, he introduced the American Sovereignty Restoration Act. By introducing the bill in this session, the congressman from Alabama continues the long and valiant effort by lawmakers to get the U.S. government out of the UN. Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), a GOP presidential candidate last election and a hero of many liberty-minded and constitutionalist Americans, first introduced the bill in 1997, when it garnered 54 supporters. The next time it was voted on, support had drastically increased.
While anti-UN sentiment is fierce and growing across much of America, in Alabama, where the legislation’s lead sponsor comes from, that animosity is especially pronounced. In 2012, for example, both houses of the state legislature voted unanimously to ban the deeply controversial UN “sustainable development” program known as Agenda 21 in what was hailed as a major victory for property rights and sovereignty. Since then, UN meddling in American affairs has accelerated dramatically, sparking even more outrage about the global organization across Alabama and beyond.
In the U.S. Senate, pro-sovereignty sentiment is also growing. Earlier this year, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a leading contender for the 2016 nomination, blasted the UN and suggested it should be dismantled. “I dislike paying for something that two-bit Third World countries with no freedom attack us and complain about the United States,” explained the senator, who is also Ron Paul’s son. “There’s a lot of reasons why I don’t like the UN, and I think I’d be happy to dissolve it.”
The American public generally shares those sentiments, with a 2014 Gallup poll showing that a staggering 57 percent of Americans believed the UN was doing a “bad job,” versus 37 percent who thought it was doing a “good job.” More than two thirds of Americans were upset with the UN, and independents were also overwhelmingly opposed. But even among Democrats, half thought the UN was doing a bad job. The Obama administration, meanwhile, apparently out of step with the American people, has called for drastically expanding and empowering the UN and its scandal-plagued military forces.
The legislation to withdraw U.S. participation in the UN is currently sitting in the House Foreign Affairs Committee chaired by Rep. Edward “Ed” Royce (R-Calif.), who will play a key role in deciding whether it moves on to the full House for a vote by the American people’s elected representatives. Americans who support U.S. sovereignty and the U.S. Constitution should urge their representatives to take action.
As efforts to fully restore U.S. sovereignty proceed, though, the Republican Congress should completely de-fund the UN in the meantime. Without action, the increasingly powerful and lawless UN will continue seeking to further empower itself at American expense — trampling on liberty and sovereignty in the process.

Let’s just look at what President Elect Trump has said and what would happen if he follows through with them.
President Trump has called for other NATO countries to step up and pay their fair share of the NATO bill. The USA may even pull out of NATO.
The U.S. share is calculated on the basis of gross national income — the total domestic and foreign output claimed by residents of a country — and adjusted regularly. Currently that would be about 22 percent, compared to about 15 percent for Germany, 11 percent for France, 10 percent for the United Kingdom, 8 percent for Italy, 7 percent for Canada, and so forth.
“Common funding includes both annual funding for NATO civilian and military expenses (the latter includes spending on very few NATO owned assets and is a few billion a year) and any operational military expenses, which get voted on whenever the operation is authorized,” said Ivo Daalder, a former U.S. ambassador to NATO who is president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “This includes fuel for NATO AWACS aircraft, some headquarter costs, etc.”
Here’s the full breakdown for the 2016-2017 budget period. (NSIP, one of three elements listed, refers to the NATO Security Investment Program). In 2012, the Congressional Research Service produced a report that looked at direct funding in detail. Despite Trump’s claim that the United States is spending “billions and billions” on NATO, Defense Department budget documents show the annual direct contribution is under $500 million a year.
NATO documents show that a majority of NATO members fail to meet NATO’s guideline, established in 2006, that defense expenditures should amount to 2 percent of each country’s gross domestic product. The median spending in 2015 is just 1.18 percent of GDP, compared to 3.7 percent for the United States, NATO says. Just four other countries currently exceed the 2 percent guideline.
“The volume of the US defense expenditure effectively represents 73 per cent of the defense spending of the Alliance as a whole,” NATO says in a discussion of indirect funding. “This does not mean that the United States covers 73 per cent of the costs involved in the operational running of NATO as an organization, including its headquarters in Brussels and its subordinate military commands, but it does mean that there is an over-reliance by the Alliance as a whole on the United States for the provision of essential capabilities, including for instance, in regard to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; air-to-air refueling; ballistic missile defense; and airborne electronic warfare.”
NATO concedes this imbalance has been an issue since the start of the alliance: “The combined wealth of the non-US Allies, measured in GDP, exceeds that of the United States. However, non-US Allies together spend less than half of what the United States spends on defense.”
What would happen to the world if Mr Trump and the USA pulled out of NATO? Europe and Germany would be forced to develop their own military and strategic defenses, and supply their own armaments. All of this points us to the King of the North joining with the King of the South and then jointly attacking the USA. [Daniel 11]
I am referring to the prophecy in Genesis in which the archers are missile launchers.
Gen 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful son, a fruitful son by a well, whose branches run over the wall. 23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and an archer lurks for him.
The article above about the USA pulling out of the UN is stunning. Just imagine if the USA does this. The USA pays 3 Billion a year to fund the UN. With 197 nations in the world, the money the USA spends on the UN is more than 185 other nations combined. And yet the UN is trying to dictate to the USA what the laws of the land should be.
In my understanding of Torah and prophecy, the UN is a German EU led reincarnation of the Holy Roman Empire and is about to rise up for the final time. A scripture that rings loud in my hearing when I see the things above is found in Revelation.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that you may not be partakers of her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues.
The Great Whore of Revelation is the UN, and the EU along with German power. In order to come out of her the USA must leave. The UN is also the driving force behind the LGBTQ movement since it was added to the Human Rights laws and then added to the UNEP (United Nations Environmental Program). And this brings us to the next things that President Trump has said.
President Trump has said he would leave the UN Paris agreement and not be involved in it. This is stuntacular. Yiiippppeeeee….. YAAHHHOOOO!! Sorry I have forgotten myself for a moment.
The Paris agreement has 197 nations of the possible 197 nations in the world all agreeing to this covenant. Yes, it is the covenant made with many spoken of in Daniel 9:27. It is the one that pushes the Human rights issues on the world under the guise of environmental protection. It is a Satanic con and the world has fallen for it. Satan who deceives the whole world. [Rev 12:9]
Just before Israel was to enter the promised land. Right near the end of their 40 years in the wilderness, Israel began to fornicate with the Moabite women.
Num 25:1 And Israel lived in Shittim, and the people began to fornicate with the daughters of Moab. 2 And they called the people to the sacrifices of their gods. And the people ate and bowed down to their gods. 3 And Israel joined himself to Baal-peor. And the anger of Jehovah was kindled against Israel.
When you look up what this god Baal-Peor was you then get an insight as to what the men of Israel were up to. The god Baal-Peor was the god of holes. Any hole you could find was okay to use for sexual gratification. Oral or anal. Men on men, men on women, men on children, and men on animals. Any hole, whether the womb or the anus or the mouth, could be used to satisfy the self lust of the man. Is this not the very same thing that is going on right now with the LGBTQ? And is it not the UN that is promoting it and forcing the nations of the world to accept this part of their laws under the guise of Human Rights?
The Great Whore, the UN is today the very same as the Moabite women. Israel has once again, at the end of this age, fallen for the Curse of Balaam. What is that curse? Get Israel to sin so grievously that Yehovah Himself will come down and destroy them. 50% of the USA supports the LGBTQ Human Rights along with Pro Choice or in other words, abortion of the unborn child no matterwhat stage of development the infant is.
President Elect Trump has already upset the liberal world. You have read the comments from the European and the German, just about his getting elected to the Presidency. Can you even imagine how upset they will be when he pulls out the financial rug that the USA has been from NATO and from the UN?
This will undoubtedly lead to war.
Let me share a few more things you may not be aware of.
This Summer, Medina was attacked and bombed. It is the Holiest of muslim sites.
On October 28, 2016, while many of you were at the second Feast this year,Yemen’s Houthi rebels targeted Saudi Arabia’s holy city of Mecca by launching a long-range ballistic missile from 500km over the border. Brethren, this was a flippen scud missile, just like what Saddam Hussein fired at Israel not that long ago. The scud missile was supplied by none other than Iran. The same country that the USA worked out a nuclear agreement with.
In the game of real world chess, Iran has almost surrounded Saudi Arabia and been able to cut off it’s supply of oil at the two choke points Iran is now in control of.
We have said for a long time that the prophecy in the 7 years of plenty and 7 years of famine was for our time in front of us. In that prophecy we said that the baker and the cup holder are the two major religions of the world. The cup holder is the Catholic church and the baker is Islam. We have said that Islam is going to do something to Rome before they are completely defeated. This will cause the Pope to have to move to Jerusalem.
We have repeatedly said that the covenant made with many from Daniel 9:27 was the UNEP created in June 1972. That one week spoken of in Daniel ends in June 2020. Is this when the USA ends the Paris agreement? Is it when they pull out of the UN or NATO as well? We shall soon see. Another part of Daniels prophecy states that in the middle of the 70th week, which have proven undoubtedly to be speaking of the 70th Jubilee cycle since Yehovah commanded Moses to go and get His people from Israel, to be the year 2020. It is in the middle of this Jubilee cycle that Israel, the 12 tribes will be cut off and be as if they did not exist.
We have said, and believe it is written in The Prophecies of Abraham that the USA would have weak presidents followed by a Hawk President. And this now seems to have taken place. But judgment has already taken place over Israel. The curse of the sword is still coming. Could a Jonah event take place and the USA repent with ashes and mean it, like Ninevah? I doubt it.
President Trump is going to anger the EU and the UN, and NATO and Germany, the powerhouse of the EU, UN and NATO. The EU along with NATO and Germany will destroy the King of the South, Islam and then combined together will attack and enslave and rape the USA and the UK and her commonwealth nations for 7 years starting in 2020. Then the two witnesses begin to work in 2026 for 3 1/2 years until they are killed at Passover 2030, which then is the time when the woman flees into the wilderness for 3 1/2 years while the Great Tribulation takes place.
Since 2005 we have been speaking out about the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles and what they reveal in prophecy. We have published these teachings in our 4 books, The Prophecies of Abraham, Remembering the Sabbatical year of 2016, The 2300 Days of Hell, and The Blood Moons-The Elephant in the Room.
We have not had to change our teachings because they are based on Torah. With each passing year as we draw closer to the end of this age, we are proven correct over and over again. This past week we again saw violent earthquakes in New Zealand along with flooding. Will you now order these books and read them? When you order them from our web site you help us to be able to share this warning message with others.
I pray each of you, and I mean each and every one of you will copy this week’s News letter and send it by registered mail to President Trump. I would very much like to explain these things to him.
Yehovah be with each of you.
