Signs and How you react to them

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Feast of Trumpets 2017

This coming Thursday evening Sept 21 is the day and hour no man can know. And if it is not this evening then it will be the next one. We just do not know the day or the hour the moon will be sighted.

This then means that the Feast of Trumpets begins or Thursday night and Friday day or it begins Friday Night and Saturday day.

In Mathew 24:3 the Apostles said to Yehshua;

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Many Christians will quote the answer Yehshua gave them, but they will never understand what Yehshua actually said because you gain understanding when you obey Yehovah. It is by keeping the Holy Days at the proper time that you gain this understanding and knowledge. Then once you have obeyed and gain this understanding then wisdom comes to those who obey. And it is they who will understand what Yehshua meant when He said no one can know the day or the hour. Read what He said starting in ver 36-44.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

So you need to be ready to keep Thursday night and Friday day as a Holy Day. We just will not know until about 12 PM on Thursday when the moon might be sighted in Jerusalem. So we must wait and watch to see if in fact it is seen. If it is not seen then Sabbath will be the 1st Day of the 7th Month, The Feast of Shouting, the day the Messiah was born on and the day He will come back on.

When I look at Judaism 101 and ask the question why do the Jews keep Rosh Hashanah for two days instead of one we have the following answer from them.

You may notice that the number of days of some holidays do not accord with what the Bible specifies. In most cases, we celebrate one more day than the Bible requires. There is an interesting reason for this additional day.

The Jewish calendar is lunar, with each month beginning on the new moon. The new months used to be determined by observation. When the new moon was observed, the Sanhedrin declared the beginning of a new month and sent out messengers to tell people when the month began. People in distant communities could not always be notified of the new moon (and therefore, of the first day of the month), so they did not know the correct day to celebrate. They knew that the old month would be either 29 or 30 days, so if they didn’t get notice of the new moon, they celebrated holidays on both possible days.

This practice of celebrating an extra day was maintained as a custom even after we adopted a precise mathematical calendar, because it was the custom of our ancestors. This extra day is not celebrated by Israelis, regardless of whether they are in Israel at the time of the holiday, because it is not the custom of their ancestors, but it is celebrated by everybody else, even if they are visiting Israel at the time of the holiday.

Rosh Hashanah is celebrated as two days everywhere (in Israel and outside Israel), because it occurs on the first day of a month. Messengers were not dispatched on the holiday, so even people in Israel did not know whether a new moon had been observed, and everybody celebrated two days. The practice was also maintained as a custom after the mathematical calendar was adopted.

Please do note that this year of 2017, the Feast of Trumpets according to the Jewish calendar will be Wednesday night and Thursday day regardless of the sighting of the moon.  The reason is they have applied the postponement rules which prevent the fall Holy Days from landing beside the weekly Sabbath. There is no instruction or commandment in the Torah to do this. Yet they do it each and every year.

Having shared the above with you about the proper time to keep the Feast and then how the Jews acknowledge the proper time and yet keep these fall Feasts on the wrong days, now let me ask you a question.

Proverbs 16:20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good,
And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.

Yehshua also said;

Luke 11:28 But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”

If by keeping the Holy Days and the Sabbath we are to be blessed, then why were 6 Million Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust in WW II and why have they been persecuted and run out of many cities in Europe and Russia in pogroms?

The answer to that question has been explained above. If you continue to keep the Holy Days, the appointed times of Yehovah, HIs moeds or moedeems, at any other time other than those specific dates He has commanded us to keep them at in Lev 23, then you will be rebelling against the Most High and will not be in His protection when evil comes.

This year in Israel we are going to tour to one of the signal hills where they lit the bon fires to let others in other nations know the Moon has been sighted. They did this for hundreds of years. Now they have TV and Cell Phones. I wonder why they are not obeying Yehovah now. What excuses they will give for not obeying. Read the next section and keep it in mind along with what you have just read.

Before we move on let me share with you some things from the Mishneh.

Start of the month

We know from the historical records that Judaism still used the sighting of the new moon during the Second Temple period. We also have proof that this practice continued even after the Romans destroyed the second temple. A group of Jewish scholars, Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai and his disciples, fled from Jerusalem before the destruction. They settled themselves in a town called Yavneh (Yavne, Yabneh or Jamnia). Rabbi Yochanan established a Sanhedrin there that could instruct the scattered communities. This instruction included the setting of the date for new months. Rabbi Yochanan was the leader of the council from around 70 to 80 C.E. He was succeeded by Gamliel II.3

We know from the recordings in the Mishnah, that Rabbi Yochanan still used the sighting of the moon to determine the start of the month. His rulings made some changes to the halacha to allow for the destruction of the temple. Here is one such an example that illustrates this point.

Rosh Hashanah 4:4
E When the Temple was destroyed, Rabban Yohanan b. Zakkai made the rule that they should [once more] receive testimony about the new moon all day long.
F Said R. Joshua b. Qorha, “This rule too did Rabban Yohanan b. Zakkai make:
G “Even if the head of the court is located somewhere else, the witnesses should come only to the location of the council [to give testimony, and not to the location of the head of the court].”1
We see from this passage in the Mishnah that they still received the witnesses to the new moon in Yahneh.

Originally, they used beacon fires to signal the start of the new month. Due to the fact that the Samaritans lit fires on wrong days to confuse them, they started sending our messengers. This was done in the time of Rabbi Judah I. He lived from 135 to 220 C.E and was the first of Hillel’s successors to be called “Nasi.” In the Jerusalem Talmud he is most often referred to simply as “Rabbi.” In this passage from the Jerusalem Talmud we see that he had stopped the beacon fires. 4

y. Rosh Hashanah 2:1, III.1.C–M
[C] Who discontinued the beacon fires?
[D] Rabbi discontinued the beacon fires, and he permitted the murderer [to testify concerning the new moon], and he permitted hearsay testimony in the same matter, and he permitted them to go out on at twilight at the end of the twenty-ninth day of the lunar month or the night that marks the commencement of the thirtieth day while it was still evening, in the assumption that the new month would be sanctified the next day.
[E] R. Abbahu said, “Even though you say that they discontinued the beacon fires, they did not discontinue those from the Sea of Tiberias.”
[F] R. Zeira asked before R. Abbahu, “Regarding those that we see at Safed. why do they light beacons?”
[G] He said to him, “Rabbi discontinued the beacon fires. So with regard to Safed, why does it light beacons?”
[H] “It is only for the sake of declaring the matter, to make sure that they. know.”
[I] They do not raise up [beacons to signal] the night of its proper time [the thirtieth day of the lunar month], but rather [to signal] the night of its intercalation.
[J] They do not raise up [beacons to signal] the night of its proper time because of the Festival day, but they raise them up the night of its intercalation.
[K] They do not raise up [beacons] except for the new moons which are established in their proper time, because of the Festival that happens to fall on the Eve of the Sabbath. [Goldman: in this way no confusion would develop when the fire was seen on the Saturday night following a New Year that began on Thursday night. Potentially, the same confusion might otherwise also develop in any case where a defective month would end on Thursday evening. In such cases the beacons were lit on the night that began the thirty-second day.] [L] They do not raise up [beacons] the night of its proper time because of festival day. They do not raise up [beacons] the night of its intercalation because of honoring the Sabbath.
[M] Now if you say to raise them up whether for the New Moons which are established in their proper time, or whether for intercalated months which are not established in their proper time, if you say thus, they would think perhaps the Court had ruled to intercalate and they become disordered. 5
This required that messengers had to be sent to all the communities. So what happens if the new moon is sighted on a sabbath? Are the messengers allowed to go out?

m. Rosh Hashanah 1:4
A On the occasion of two new moons [witnesses to the new moon] violate [the prohibitions of] the Sabbath:
B at Nisan and at Tishre.
C For on these occasions the messengers go forth to Syria.1
We know that it would not be possible for messengers to travel fast enough to get the message to all Jewish communities in the diaspora. This lead to the fact that the the Jews in the diaspora had to celebrate feasts for two days. This is most likely the reason why the calculated calendar became more popular.


Are You Just Watching World Events or are you taking action?

Your world continues to convulse with earthshaking events. Friday, Sept. 8 Mexico was jolted by an 8.2 magnitude earthquake that, so far, has killed dozens of people. It was the STRONGEST earthquake to hit Mexico in at least 100 years. Add this to the long list of “once-in-a-century” disasters we’ve experienced in recent months. This earthquake took place on the west coast of Mexicos panhandle. One of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded in Mexico and a raging hurricane dealt a devastating one-two punch to the country, killing at least 61 people as workers scrambled to respond to the twin national emergencies.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center reported Katia’s maximum sustained winds had dropped to 75 mph (120 kph) when it made landfall. And it rapidly weakened even further over land into a tropical storm. The centre said Katia was stalling over Mexico’s Sierra Madre mountains, where it could bring 10 to 15 inches (25 to 37 centimeters ) of rain to a region with a history of deadly mudslides and flooding.

Hurricane Irma has destroyed the Caribbean island and Florida. It has been called the most powerful Atlantic storm in history. A Nuclear Hurricane. The storm has already ravaged several Caribbean Islands, killing at least 24, and leaving many areas uninhabitable for months. Reports from Barbuda and St. Martin say that more than 90 percent of buildings have been damaged. Right now, the storm is projected to smash into Miami Saturday night. Today, the National Hurricane Center downgraded the storm to a Category 4, with maximum sustained winds at around 150 mph. William Long, the head of FEMA, says this storm will “devastate the United States, either Florida or some of the southeastern states.”

Miami, a city of almost half a million people, is becoming eerily deserted. An estimated 1.4 million people are under mandatory evacuations in Florida and Georgia, sitting in traffic jams for hours as they try to head north. Some reporters are saying this is one of the largest mass exoduses in history.

And this all comes while some buildings are still underwater in and around Houston, Texas, where Hurricane Harvey broke all-time continental U.S. tropical cyclone rain records. The storm and flooding killed more than 70 people from August 25–30, displacing more than a million, and inflicting an estimated $75 billion in damage.

Meanwhile, on America’s West Coast, California just concluded its hottest summer ON RECORD. In fact, it’s still in the midst of a brutal heat wave. Over the last two weeks, firefighters in the Golden State have been combatting 15 large-scale blazes. Last weekend, the city of Los Angeles had its worst wildfire in history. Washington, Oregon, California, Montanna, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming are all suffering from wildfires. And so is British Columbia in Canada

Fires in one region, flooding in another. Would you believe that this exact scenario was described thousands of years ago? This is exactly what the Book of Amos prophesied for the last days (Amos 4:7).

Amos 4:6-5:15 “Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities.
And lack of bread in all your places;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.

“I also withheld rain from you,
When there were still three months to the harvest.
I made it rain on one city,
I withheld rain from another city.
One part was rained upon,
And where it did not rain the part withered.
So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water,
But they were not satisfied;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.
“I blasted you with blight and mildew.
When your gardens increased,
Your vineyards,
Your fig trees,
And your olive trees,
The locust devoured them;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.
“I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt;
Your young men I killed with a sword,
Along with your captive horses;
I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.
“I overthrew some of you,
As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.
“Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel;
Because I will do this to you,
Prepare to meet your God, O Israel!”
For behold,
He who forms mountains,
And creates the wind,
Who declares to man what his thought is,
And makes the morning darkness,
Who treads the high places of the earth—
The Lord God of hosts is His name.
Chapter 5
A Lament for Israel
Hear this word which I take up against you, a lamentation, O house of Israel:
The virgin of Israel has fallen;
She will rise no more.
She lies forsaken on her land;
There is no one to raise her up.
For thus says the Lord God:
“The city that goes out by a thousand
Shall have a hundred left,
And that which goes out by a hundred
Shall have ten left to the house of Israel.”
A Call to Repentance
For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel:
“Seek Me and live;
But do not seek Bethel,
Nor enter Gilgal,
Nor pass over to Beersheba;
For Gilgal shall surely go into captivity,
And Bethel shall come to nothing.
Seek the Lord and live,
Lest He break out like fire in the house of Joseph,
And devour it,
With no one to quench it in Bethel—
You who turn justice to wormwood,
And lay righteousness to rest in the earth!”
He made the Pleiades and Orion;
He turns the shadow of death into morning
And makes the day dark as night;
He calls for the waters of the sea
And pours them out on the face of the earth;
The Lord is His name.
He rains ruin upon the strong,
So that fury comes upon the fortress.
They hate the one who rebukes in the gate,
And they abhor the one who speaks uprightly.
Therefore, because you tread down the poor
And take grain taxes from him,
Though you have built houses of hewn stone,
Yet you shall not dwell in them;
You have planted pleasant vineyards,
But you shall not drink wine from them.
For I know your manifold transgressions
And your mighty sins:
Afflicting the just and taking bribes;
Diverting the poor from justice at the gate.
Therefore the prudent keep silent at that time,
For it is an evil time.
Seek good and not evil,
That you may live;
So the Lord God of hosts will be with you,
As you have spoken.
Hate evil, love good;
Establish justice in the gate.
It may be that the Lord God of hosts
Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.

In spite of all of these things that we see now and that Amos wrote about, we as a people, as a nation, and as individuals, have not and will not return to Yehovah.

I was sent this prayer that was conducted at the White House. This was conducted Sept 1, 2017 as a national day of Prayer for the Hurricane Harvey victims.

But let us actually read what they were supposedly quoting.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

I do hope you all caught what the pastor left out of his prayer. The very thing that might have caused Yehovah to actually hear his prayer. They want the blessings but they will not turn from their wicked ways. They will not repent.

When you see such horrific problems like the many wild Fires out west, then Hurricane Harvey, and now Irma and soon Jose you have to ask yourself, is God blessing America? We sing the song “God Bless America” all the time in this nation. But is God hearing our prayers? Is He healing our land? Or is it the OPPOSITE?

Yehovah is not even listening.

Pro 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be an abomination.

Zec 7:13-14 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith Yehovah of hosts:
But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.

Isaiah 1:15-20 When you spread out your hands,  I will hide My eyes from you; Even though you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow. “Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land;
But if you refuse and rebel, You shall be devoured by the sword”; For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Jermiah 11:7-14 For I earnestly exhorted your fathers in the day I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, until this day, rising early and exhorting, saying, “Obey My voice.” Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but everyone followed the dictates of his evil heart; therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but which they have not done.’ ”
And the Lord said to me, “A conspiracy has been found among the men of Judah and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They have turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers who refused to hear My words, and they have gone after other gods to serve them; the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken My covenant which I made with their fathers.”
Therefore thus says the Lord: “Behold, I will surely bring calamity on them which they will not be able to escape; and though they cry out to Me, I will not listen to them. Then the cities of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem will go and cry out to the gods to whom they offer incense, but they will not save them at all in the time of their trouble. For according to the number of your cities were your gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem you have set up altars to that shameful thing, altars to burn incense to Baal.
“So do not pray for this people, or lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not hear them in the time that they cry out to Me because of their trouble.

Jermiah 14:10-16 Thus says the Lord to this people:
“Thus they have loved to wander; They have not restrained their feet. Therefore the Lord does not accept them; He will remember their iniquity now, And punish their sins.”
Then the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for this people, for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I will not accept them. But I will consume them by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.”
Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, the prophets say to them, ‘You shall not see the sword, nor shall you have famine, but I will give you assured peace in this place.’ ”
And the Lord said to me, “The prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision, divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name, whom I did not send, and who say, “Sword and famine shall not be in this land’—‘By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed! And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; they will have no one to bury them—them nor their wives, their sons nor their daughters—for I will pour their wickedness on them.’

Micah 3:4 Then they will cry to the Lord, But He will not hear them; He will even hide His face from them at that time, Because they have been evil in their deeds.

To read all of this is so very depressing to understand. Why? Read 2 Chronicles again.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Words are cheap but actions speak volumes. Yehovah does not want to hear your prayers if you’re not going to obey. But if you turn from disobeying, if stop being evil by not obeying His commandments, IF HE SEES YOUR ACTIONS ACTUALLY TURN, then He will answer you and HEAL your land.

Yehovah is waiting to see your act. To see you actually move your feet and do those things He has said to do. This year the LGBT Pride parades were big time events in all those places that have been hit hard this year. Coincidental you say, providential I say. To act would be to not have those parades next year and to stop them right now. That is action. You keeping the Holy Days at the proper time would be action. Nations keeping the Feasts with one accord would be action.


Look at how Burundi is taking action?

Keep in mind all that we have shared above as you now read our report about our recent visit to Burundi Africa.

Across North America, for the past 10 years, it has been difficult to get more than 20 people to come out to hear our message about the Holy Days and the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. None of the established Church of God groups wants to hear it. None of the Messianic Groups want to hear it. None of the Jewish Groups want to hear it. I think the best showing might have been Abilene Texas Ocala Florida and Detroit with fewer than 100. In contrast, when I went to the Philippines in 2015, we had about 300 come out and they continue to have large showings there and continue to add more each month.

North America has been the most blessed of nations around the world. Canada and the USA are the most blessed and at the same time the most irreligious. When I went to the Philippines we showed them the curses of Lev 26 and we showed them the many curses they had suffered. They were then and they are now still ready to turn and repent and start to obey Yehovah. This is why whole groups are now changing from Sunday worship to return and start to keep the Sabbath and Holy Days.

It is like shooting fish in a barrel once they have been humbled as it says in 2 Chronicles.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Notice we must humble ourselves or He will humble us through these “natural” disasters. No, they are Yehovah sent disasters to humble us and to turn us back to Him. But as we read in Amos, we would not turn back to Him. So he sent most evil upon us.

Again read Lev 26:14

“But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments,
and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant,
I also will do this to you:
I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart.
And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies.
Those who hate you shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you.

In the wild fire areas of the Western USA and in Western Canada as well as Spain, massive evacuations take place at a moments notice of whole towns fleeing the raging wild fires that race towards their communities. Last week we also saw 1 Million Cubans fled their homes and in Florida from the Keys to Savanah Georgia people were fleeing with commanded evacuation notices in front of the coming Hurricane Irma and Jose. Over 6 Million fled and yet no one pursued them.

After Hurricane Irma passed through the Caribbean Island of Barbuda and St Martin those who had stayed now had nothing left to go back to. Many of them were then evacuated to other places.  Now once again I urge you to read Ezekiel 20. Read it all and then slow down and consider the following verses.

Ezekiel 20: 33-38 “As I live,” says the Lord God, “surely with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out, I will rule over you. I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out. And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face. Just as I pleaded My case with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will plead My case with you,” says the Lord God.
“I will make you pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant; I will purge the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the country where they dwell, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

Many in Houston have lost their homes from the flooding. They have to gut them to get rid of the mold that grows in the walls after the flooding. Many in the Caribbean lost their houses altogether. And the storm was furious as it blew past them. Just as Yehovah said He will deal with them in FURY.

But I also want you to notice two other things.

The second curse of Lev 26 begins in verse 18-20

“And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
I will break the pride of your power;
I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze.
And your strength shall be spent in vain;
for your land shall not yield its produce, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.

This is extreme weather and extreme heat. Both of which have caused the wild fires and the worst Hurricane in History, now called Irma.

The 3rd curse is pestilence and the fourth curse is war.

“And if by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me,
then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
And I will bring a sword against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant;
when you are gathered together within your cities I will send pestilence among you;
and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

In Ezekiel, we read about how Yehovah would make us pass under the rod. In Isaiah 10:5 we read who that rod is that we will pass under.

“Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger
And the staff in whose hand is My indignation.

When you pass under the rod, is an expression of counting out the tithe. Every tenth one is sent to Yehovah. The rest are sent to slaughter.

After that 4th curse of the sword passing through your land comes another curse in Lev 26. Cannibalism.

“And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me,
then I also will walk contrary to you in fury;
and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.

This is a result of war and not being able to grow crops or not being able to harvest crops due to the severe and extreme weather. It could also be because you are homeless and on the run to find shelter. What ever it is, that has caused these conditions people will resort to eating other human beings and even to eating their own sons and daughters.

All of this because they would not turn back to Yehovah and take action to show Him their repentance. Words without action are nothing. Humble your selves now while you can and repent and return to Him with your whole being. Keep His Sabbaths, and His Holy Days as told to you in Lev 23 at the proper times and get ready to keep the Sabbatical year in 2023-2024. These are His sign upon your hand and upon your head that you are His.  To keep them at the wrong time or not at all will lead to your deaths and destruction.

The fury in the weather is an example of the fury in the sword that is about to come.

Since the first of Elul, the 6th month, which came two days after the solar eclipse that crossed the entire USA there have been many co-incidences. Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia, the 8.2 earthquakes in Mexico. As well there has been the ratcheting up each week of war rhetoric between the USA and North Korea, with the North launching missiles that can reach as far as New York City and then the testing of Nuclear H- bombs that can be put on those missiles. Both China and Russia are saying that if North Korea launches they will not intervene if the USA strikes back. This, of course, will lead to the destruction of South Korea and possibly Japan, both allies of the USA and there by enemies of North Korea. Then on the Sabbath Sept 9, I received news of the IDF striking a Syrian chemical plant under the nose of the Russians and run by the Iranians.

The 40th day of the forty days of Repentance began with the 1st of Elul on August 24 at sunset the night before. They end on the 40th day which is the day of Atonement, which should be October 2 beginning at sunset the night before.

Yes, I am fully aware of the fact that the planet Jupiter leaves the womb of Virgo on Sept 23. What does this mean? I will leave it to the Rapture people and the Christians to teach you. As you all know they will not repent and they will not return to Yehovah and keep the Sabbath or Holy Days. And because they will not obey, I have to ask you why you even follow them or their teachings let alone their so called prophecies.

The theme of this News letter is humbling your heart to obey Yehovah. I have two assignments for you to do. First of all, I want you to stop here and go and read these two News Letters about the day of Atonement. Should we Fast on the day of Atonement & Afflicting our Soul Part 1 Balaams Ass.

It is the afflicting of our souls, the humbling of our hearts that is the greatest problem we have. Toooooo Many of you think you’re already righteous. Taking on a Hebrew name and speaking in broken English mixed with Hebrew words does not make you righteous. Please do read the two articles above before you continue.

When you afflict your soul you are face down grovelling in the dirt begging for your very life. You are that sorry for what you have done before the King of all Kings.


Now that you know what humble is;

James Relf was a man I met in Israel on one of the tours I co hosted with Avi Ben Mordechai. James lived not far from me and when my web site was highjacked and I was being extorted to get it back, James came to my rescue and stealthily got the site back up and running before any of you knew it was off line. That was in 2013. He has been working with me since then and has become a trusted friend and sounding board for the things I have come to understand.

In 2005 James went to Australia to speak at a conference and do some work for Bradley Hay a close friend of his. At this conference, he by accident met Bishop Telesphore Ntashimikiro and the man who would become the President of Burundi Pierre Nkurunziza. Telesphore and James would keep writing to each other over the years.

In January of 2015, James wanted to send to Telesphore my books and DVD’s. I was not too sure about doing this as the man was a Bishop for some Christian group. My prejudice almost prevented the miracle that was to happen from happening. But James insisted and even said he would pay for the shipping cost, which was over $300 to send the books and DVD’s to Africa.

We would later get a picture of Telesphore in his Bishops attire teaching about the books to the many churches he was shepherding.


Telesphore asked us to come and teach these truths to him and all his pastors in 2015. At the same time, we had the opportunity to go to the Philippines and teach there for sukkot. Telesphore advised us the cost to host in Burundi would be about $36,000 US. The cost for us to take a camera man and spend three weeks in the Philippines was going to be about $15,000. There was no way we could do both and we could not even afford to go to the Philippines let alone Burundi.  So Burundi was on their own.

I went to the Philippines in 2015 and then in 2016 James and Telesphore found a way for James to go there without it costing us a fortune. James was to go to Burundi for two weeks before Sukkot and then meet with me in Israel for Sukkot. James got sick while in Burundi and was sick for most of the time in Israel. We determined it was due to the Malaria pills he had to take in order not to get Malaria.

I had wanted James to determine if this Bishop was for real or faking us out in order to get funding from us. James already knew Telesphore and was going to confirm what he knew to be the facts. This trip of James was so successful that in 2017 it was decided to send James again for an entire month. I could not afford to go. James spent the month traveling to many of the churches and teaching them the Sabbath and Holy Days. He was very excited about the growth and the many open doors shown to him. James even met with the Vice President and explained our message to him. The Vice President was genuinely interested.

At the end of this trip, the Vice President wanted to meet James and this time me also and said we would then meet with the President. And He arranged for this to take place on Sept. 2 weekend. So James came home for those three weeks in between and we prepared to go again to Burundi. This meant more Malaria pills and for me to get my Yellow Fever shot and have all my medical documentation ready to present at customs when I got to Burundi.

We also received a letter from the Vice President;



-His Excellency Mr. President of the Republic, with the Assurance of my Highest Consideration;

We also received a letter of invitation from the Vice President.







It is my honour and pleasure to extend to you an invitation by His Excellency Mr. Gaston Sindimwo, Senior Vice President of the Republic of Burundi, who wishes that you should come to Burundi to discuss the business affairs that currently exist in our country.

The date was set for Sept 1 and Sept 2 that we would be speaking with the Vice President and the President. James booked the tickets with Ethiopian Airlines. It was a 13-hour flight from Toronto Canada to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with a 4-1/2 hour lay over and then a 2-1/2 hour flight to Bujumbura Burundi.

Our return flight was from Bujumbura to Goma, the Democratic Republic of the Congo,  a 1/2 hour flight with a one-hour layover while we pick up passengers. Then a 2 1/2 hour flight from Goma to Addis Ababa Ethiopia with a 4-hour wait there. And what a crush of people trying to get through the security there all to catch flights leaving at the same time. It was pandemonium. From Addi Ababa, we then flew to Dublin Ireland, an 8-hour flight with one hour waiting on board the plane before we would then fly the final 7-1/2 hour flight back to Toronto. Then we had a 1-hour wait for our luggage and 2 1/2 hour drive home after landing. In all, we were up Monday and then flying for a total of about 32 hours before we got home on Tuesday. It is not all glamour doing this work for Yehovah. Much of the time it is spent alone in airports traveling and in lineups to board planes.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Upon arrival in Bujumbura, the Vice President sent his senior assistant Amahorroh and Telesphore and Pastor Daimon, to escort us through customs via a VIP door, by passing all the crowds. After a long and tiring trip to Burundi, I was beginning to feel very welcomed and wanted. At the same time, my nose had begun to run for some unknown reason and my eczema was flaring up all over my face due to the stress of traveling and of the meetings we were about to have. And the unknown. We did not know what the schedule was.

Telesphore was going to let us rest in our rooms and I told him we could rest when we got back to Canada. We only had a few days and we had better make the most of the time we had. Telesphore then went and got about 10 of his pastors to come and meet with James and I at the hotel that Wednesday afternoon. I ended up giving them a teaching on the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles. I would find out later some of these same pastors were sitting on the fence about the Sabbath and Holy Days.

 The pastors all had to leave before sunset. I would soon find out why. The electricity for the town of Bujumbura is shut off for the night about 7 PM. It is then turned on for about an hour in the morning at about 8 AM. Then turned off for the day and back on about 6-8 PM but you never know for how long in the evenings it is on. After that, some places fire up diesel powered generators or small electric ones. I quickly learned to power up my phone and battery lamp every chance I had. I took many a shower and shave by lamp light. We ate chicken and chips and a salad for supper.

We ate chicken and chips and a salad for supper. We had this almost every night because it did not have pork in it. We had to eat before sunset to avoid the mosquitoes that come out after dusk. And we wanted to avoid the possibility of being bitten and contracting malaria. I kept my windows closed at night and I searched and killed any mosquitoes that were inside my netting that enveloped the bed. With no electricity, the air conditioners did not work. It did not work when the hydro was on either. So I slept in my long johns with a turtle neck sweater and socks on my feet inside my mosquito netting each night with no window open and no air conditioner. I did get very warm at night. Stifling at times., but I was determined not to get bitten.

Then in the morning, I would go to the washroom with my battery lamp and as I sat there, each and every morning I would hear that annoying buzz around my head and then catch a glimpse of one of two mosquito in the washroom. This would happen each and every morning. I did manage to kill one but by the end of our stay, two more had moved in. And they would always fly up from behind me as I sat there. I made it a habit to always have my hands rubbing my thighs as I sat each morning. You may laugh now, but at the time, I was very concerned about contracting one of the many diseases that mosquitoes host.

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Having now traveled from Toronto to Bujumbura and gotten very little sleep on the plane since Tuesday when we left and then again not sleeping very much due to the heat at night both James and I were picked up by Telesphore in a rented car with a driver and Pastor Daimon. We were off to see the Prime Minister at his home in the country.

Because of the fact they have no electricity in Bujumbura, everything is cooked on coals. Morning and evening. In the country side, the people burn the trees to turn them into coal branches which are then taken by bicycle and brought into the city each day and sold. Although Bujumbura is surrounded by mountains I could not see them for the constant haze that is over the city. My eyes burned each day and there was this taste at the back of your throat that is always there and tastes bitter. James had warned me but I thought he exaggerated things. He did not.

As we climbed up into the mountains I expected the air to clear. It did not as we were in the area where they burnt the trees to make the charcoal. The road was straight for about 100 yards if that, then it turned left or right and then up or down and you could never see that far ahead. Our driver thought he was an Indi 500 racer and we raced through the mountains around bends and passing people, bicycles, and lorries at break neck speeds. Both James and I had to hold the handle on the roof to keep from falling over into each other. When they pass here they blow the horn to let you know they are passing and once they get the front of the vehicle past the other they then cut you off. It did not matter if other cars were coming or people were on the road or bicycles. It was a white knuckle ride. And I travel the 400 highways in Toronto each day. They are between 6 and 20 lanes wide and jammed with cars, but this ride out does the 400 Hwys.

On the side of the road is ditch about 2-4 feet deep to take away the rain water. Going around two of the hundreds of bends were two lorries that had cut the corner too sharp and fallen into the ditch and then flipped over. The warning system they use to let drivers know there is an accident ahead is to throw small tree branches on the road leading up to the accident.

The people all walk on the side of the road while the cars go flying past. They are all HIV thin or Famine thin. The women all dressed in colorful dresses and the men in trousers. Those on bikes are either being helped to push the loaded bike up the mountain or they are racing down the mountain at break neck speeds with them fully loaded. Everything is transported on their heads or on bicycles. The ditches are cleaned and rebuilt by everyone in the area. Men women and children. You can see one of the work crews in this picture.

Here is a picture of the road along side one of the many villages we raced through. I am not being critical of the way of life they are living…. No, I am showing you just how poor this nation is and what they have to do to survive.

We would often see bicycles hitching a ride on the back of a lorry going up the mountains. Sometimes we saw as many as 6 across the back all holding on until they got to their destination.

We drove for a couple of hours and then arrived at the Vice Presidents home. There were strategically placed Army personnel on trucks with Machine Guns. We drove down a laneway and then after we were granted permission to enter we were all searched and our bags opened to inspection. I had expected to have a 20-minute meeting with Vice President Gaston Sindimwo. Instead, we talked for about 3 hours before we departed.

This is James Relf, The Vice President Gaston Sindimwo, myself, and  Bishop Telepshore Ntashimikiro

He was genuinely interested to know about the Jubilee cycles and Daniel 9 and what was coming. When we began to talk about the UN whore he told us that the UN had cut off all their funding in retaliation for the failed coup in 2015. This coup in 2015 was sponsored by the UN in an effort to remove President Pierre Nkurunziza who had just won 98% of the popular vote for a third term in office.

The UN wanted him out of office because he would not submit to the demands of the UN charter which is now called the Paris Treaty on the Environment. The same one President Trump has vowed to get out of, which President Obama signed into law immediately after Trump won the elections in November 2016. In this charter, the UN pushes for human right to help save the environment. But the only human right they are pushing for is the right of the LGBTQ. Burundi is one husband and one wife lifestyle. They do not tolerate any of this LGBT stuff. And it is because of this intolerance for the PRIDE agenda that Burundi is being penalized today by the UN and her member nations.

The UN is supposed to be doing, that is collecting the money from the rich nations and giving it to the poor ones to develop their infrastructure to lower the pollution that they generate like Burundi does from burning charcoal. In Canada, we pay a carbon tax on all our energy we consume. That tax then goes to the UN and it is to go to help these poor nations. But the carbon tax is still collected but it does not go to the poor nations. A small portion might, but here in Burundi, the poorest nation on earth, they get nothing because they do not accept LGBTQ in their nation.

The UN is such a whore!!!! And I can see it so plainly now. It is described in Revelation 13, 17, and 18. The UN, EU Germany combination is this great whore spoken of in your bible and here in Burundi, we can see her at work promoting her evil propaganda.

James and I and Telesphore all thought this meeting went very well. Exceptionally well.

After this, I was under the impression we were going to meet the President who was further up country. Two weeks before we were to arrive here, we were asked if we could change everything and come on Sept 8 and 9th. We could not change our flights and work schedules at this late date. The President had meetings with his entire cabinet this weekend and he was about to bless the nation which I did not realize.

When we arrived I could see we had just come to a very big event, but I did not know what it was at this time. We were greeted by the assistant to the Prime Minister and ushered to the front row of the dignitaries section. Beside me was the Cardinal from the Catholic Church. And he had the most VIP seat. James Telesphore and I sat beside him. Just a few feet away from him was where the President would sit. As soon as we sat down the video cameras and news cameras began to take pictures of us before during and after the ceremonies. I did not know what was going on until Telesphore told me.

The President twice a year, Sept and December, blesses the nation of Burundi. HIs entire cabinet comes out and all the dignitaries of whom we were now part of. But the thing that impressed me the most was not that some Priest of Pastor does all the talking and then the President says a few words. No, here the President conducts the whole service.

This man that I had considered a tyrant, which the media in the west had told me he was; this man who would not allow his nation to turn into another LGBT nation; this President who was leading the prayer service and reading from the Bible; this leader who let 450 Million be withheld from his annual budget in order to stand up for the moral rights of his people; this President who was voted in by 98%  of the population was teaching the over 5000 people in attendance about obeying God so they could be blessed by God.

As I listened and watched, my views of this “Tyrant” totally changed and I realized I had been hoodwinked by the media and the UN once again. Let me now share with you a bunch of short videos from this day.

Here is a series of short videos about 30 seconds to 5 minutes long each. They will give you the flavor of the day as the President blessed the people and the Burundi Drums which are world famous. This was quite the day.

We did not get to meet the President as I thought we were supposed to. But I do understand. After this day the President was with the Prime Minister and saw the books we had left him. The President took the books so he could read them. We received a call asking if we had any more books to give to the Prime Minister which we did and we would see him again on Monday before we left.

The following picture was at the end of the Presidential Blessing as we were leaving. This is part of the 5000, as far as you can see, even climbing up in the church windows and trees to get a better view. They stood there shoulder to shoulder for about 3 hours and never moved. It was something to behold. I do hope you are able to get the feeling of the day from the many videos I have posted here.


After this, we then drove back in the dark over those mountainous roads. Again with people crossing them and our driving going as if in the Daytona 500.

Friday, September 1, 2017

This is Edmond my interpreter and we are speaking in front of about 350 people and it is Friday morning. We can’t get 20 people to come out on the Sabbath in North America but here on a week day, we have 350 people who want to learn and understand. James and I were to split the speaking this day and on Sabbath. But James came down with something and just before the meeting asked me to take over. I started with his notes and then began to go off the cuff.

We started to explain the Holy Days one at a time and I kept asking them questions. As they gave me the Christian answers we then would go into the scriptures and get the truth. The one that amazed many of them was to find out the reason they kept Sunday was found in  Lev 23. The wave sheaf or Ascension Sunday and Pentecost Sunday. We then showed them how the scriptures teach them Yehshua was in the grave 3 days a and 3 nights. That He did not die on Good Friday. This was very exciting to see them learn this and so many light bulbs went off in their heads.

Afterwards, one lady sitting in the dignitary section stood up to say just how exciting it was for her to learn these things and how she would like to learn more.

Afterwards, Telesphore told me she was the daughter of the founder of Burundi whom the Belgium Gov had killed. His name was Tutsi Prince Louis Rwagasore and she was in charge of one of the Government agencies. I would have liked to have had more time to talk to her.

We stopped for lunch and James had to go back to the Hotel because he was getting worse. I had planned to finish the teaching James had in the afternoon. We had only covered the Spring Feasts and I wanted to get the fall ones done this day as well.

As I Set up for the afternoon session, Telesphore came to me and asked if we could not have an afternoon teaching. He said it was the Preparation day and many of the brethren had to go home and prepare for the Sabbath. They did not have fridges and stoves or dependable electricity. So they actually had to prepare for the Sabbath. Something I had not considered. I usually just go to the fridge and get left overs or make a sandwich. And suddenly I was humbled beyond words by the actions of these people. They are seriously trying to obey.

So we canceled the afternoon session so they could prepare for the Sabbath before sunset. We stopped by a sandwich place and got some things for lunch tomorrow.

Let me say right here that although this report is speaking of the people of Burundi in glowing terms and affection, I am by no mean unaware of the history of this place and the many horrors that took place here. You can read about them in this article and or this one. And this is the most recent one I have found on Burundi from the UN.


Saturday, Sept 2, 2017

Just before we were to leave to go back to the hall, we get a phone call from Telesphore. There has been a slight change in the day’s events. We would not be able to host from the same air-conditioned hall where I taught the day before. There was not enough room for all the people coming. The hall held about 500. So they had moved it outside. This meant I would not be able to use the charts I had posted on the walls. Nor could I use the projector I had planned to use. Now I was scrambling to figure out how to teach them through an interpreter with no charts or drawings.

When we arrived there were about 1000 people outside sitting in the hot sun trying to find shade anywhere they could. they had encircled the courtyard and had speakers set up and many groups singing and dancing before I even got up to speak. I was just stupefied. I had never had that big a crowd to speak to in any meeting in North America. Even the Philippines paled in comparison.

Just look at the videos I have posted here of the crowds and the dancing and singing. There are many videos in this series that will load one after another. But when you get to the Burundi Sabbath #7 I want you to look at the little boy in the yellow pull over. This group at the end of the day wanted a picture with me. SO I told them to gather around. Then, I saw the little boy walking by and he was crying. So I put my arms to him to see if he would let me pick him up. He did so the people started to take pictures as I did this. And the group was gathering around me. I grabbed the little boy and sat him on my knee as I knelt with one knee down and one up. After I placed the little boy on my knee and as the pictures were being snapped, I then placed my two hands on the boy’s thighs to steady him from falling off my knee. Again the pictures are going all the time. It was only then when I grabbed his thighs did I realize why he was crying. He had wet his pants and was soaking wet and I had both my hands right on it and kept thinking to keep smiling, but could hardly wait to get his little soaking but off my knee. LOL. Yes, I had to go wash my hands. That was a special moment. LOL.

Here are a few pictures of me teaching in this huge courtyard.


Sunday Sept 3, 2017

James is still sick and today telesphore takes me to two churches to preach to them. They are still sitting on the fence about the Sabbath.

The one thing I kept repeating over and over at all these groups was this. The sign of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over and to then expect a different result each time. They keep Sunday and pray and sing to Jesus and yet they are the poorest nation on earth.

We read the blessings to each group. Not one person was able to count any blessings that they had received. When we then read Lev 26 and I asked them to count the curses they all said they had all the curses mentioned. I would then again say to them The sign of Insanity. We did this over and over.

Then I went on to explain the mark of Satan, 666 and how it was Sunday and all the other holidays not found in Lev 23. I then showed them the mark of Yehovah which is the Sabbath and the Holy Days.

After this I showed them how Ascension Sunday and Pentecost Sunday, the two reason they keep Sunday as the sabbath, are found in Lev 23 and if they are found there then why are they not keeping the other Holy Days?

Before I share the report from Telesphore about his take on this week’s events let me just share with you about our last day in Burundi and our meeting with the Vice President. We met him in his home in Bujumbura and I began to explain to him about the soil and how they needed to feed the worms in order to get the worm poop to make the food grow better. I then went out back to his farm and showed him the cow manure and then the composting grass he had. He may have thought I was crazy but he did understand about the benefits of the worms.

We presented the Vice President with another set of books because the President had taken the first set we gave to him.

Once we got the airport James was almost 100% better. We talked about this and wondered why he got sick during the time he was here and not before and not now as we left. It was very curious.

I am out of time to write more about this past weekend. If I have not already said so let me now say it. I want to thank all of those who stepped up to support our efforts to get to Burundi and to help Telesphore share this message. You too will reap the reward that awaits us for doing this work in these last days. I do thank you for your letter and financial support. But we are not yet done. We continue to support Aike in the Philippines and we are now going to support Telesphore in Burundi.

You will see some pictures below of the clinic Telesphore looks after. He also has an orphanage. The two nurses have not been paid for the past three months and yet they continue to do their work treating people with HIV and malaria and Dengue Fever as well as Cholera.

The next picture is the reception area just inside the front door.


This is the Doctors office or examining room. The Doctor comes by twice a week to check on the patients.

To help combat HIV they dispense free condoms to who ever wants one. Many of the children here never know who the father is. Some of the brethren grew up this way and they are very zealous to end this visciou cycle.

Saveron shows us the sign which tells us all the things they treat at this clinic. We are just about 10 minutes from our hotel but this part of town is very poor and in great need of help.


Here is the report from Telesphore on how this weekend went.

Day 1 : 6 Sept. arrival of Joseph and James with Ethiopian Airlines and taken down to the downtown hotel in Bujmbura.
Meeting : Meeting with few church leaders at the hotel who have some questions. Joseph briefed them about what they came to teach under the request of the Bishops and the Prime Vice-President he accepted the invitation to visit for a teaching as many were thirsty for the teaching.
Day 2 : 7 September : Joseph and James were taken by Bishop Telesphore to meet with the Prime Vice-President outside of the capital city, after long discussion with the Prime Vice -President, he asked Joseph to attend the crusade of thanksgiving upcountry organized by the President of the Republic of Burundi himself. The President was prepared to meet Joe and hear Joseph and James, unfortunately the time was too short. A package of Books written by Joseph Dumond have been given to the President and his Prime Vice-President of the Burundi Republic. Both were really enjoyed to the message from the books after reading some chapters.
During the crusade Joseph Dumond was so much happy to see the President of the Republic of Burundi worshiping our Yehovah and blessing the people of Burundi and the Nation.
Day 3.  8 Sept.  A training made of Bishops, church leaders, government officials and many from different denominations were present to hear the message from Joseph in a conference hall. Many choirs and groups of praise and worship made of good symphony like that of heavenly  Seraphs. When Joseph started to teach those gathered in the hall, everybody in the room was listening carefully the teaching especially understanding the Sabbath, Sabbatical year and Jubilee year and cycles, the observation of the true Sabbath of Yahweh according to the Hebrew translation, the reading of the Torah and teaching that the New Testament did not come to remove the Torah but to fulfill what what was said in the Torah, keeping the 7 Feasts of Yahweh  ect….in conclusion he said: all these are our source of curses and blessing from Yahweh as mentioned in the Book of Leviticus. Many have been persuaded by the teaching and found themselves new in the Bible that they have been teaching for many years.
Day 4: Sunday 10th : Joseph taught 1h 30 min in the Parish of Rweza in the morning.We realized that many members left the church because of the new teaching. But in now-days, they start returning after reading their whole Bible Old and New Testament. They have found everything taught was from their Bible. They were used to read the new Testament only.
Joseph encouraged the attendees to be ready to face negativism which will give us blessing if we keep teaching this truth of Yahweh without adding or reducing in the word of Yahweh.
Sunday 10th PM : Joseph taught in the other congregation, Sunday afternoon and all the congregation decided to join Bishop Telesphore ‘s team who teach this truth in Burundi, Rwanda, Congo, Uganda and Tanzania. Everybody was enthusiastic.
Bishops, government officers, pastors, church leaders and all attendees from different beliefs, faith and denominations were happy to hear this teaching and convinced and changed the way of reading the Bible. As we teach the Bible let them read the Bible themselves , they are very enthusiastic about this truth from our Bible we read day and night. Most of them are joining us to observe the true  Sabbath on Saturday. Some are still observing both Saturday and Sunday but Sunday is slowly defeated. Many will join us to teach this truth without ceasing.
Every Burundian who got chance to hear and read the Sabbatical and Jubilee Year Calendar , The Blood and Dark Moons From Adam, are still asking questions because they have realized that is 100  % truth according the Bible Scriptures which is not easy to understand.
Church leaders who are teaming with us are asking the leading team to continue to go to them to teach this message all over the country and to different churches. Even Rwanda, Congo, Uganda, Tanzania and East Africa countries are claiming the same teachings. The opportunity is there, the harvest is ripe but we are financially limited. We would like to start a Torah Center Translation. We need to pray for logistics and Yahweh will provide if we pray, keep and obey his commandment.
Joseph visited our  Health Clinic  Center and has seen a big needs such as drugs in the pharmacy, medical equipment and supplies, staff salaries which is from $ 50 to $ 100 a month.
Emergency need in our health clinic:
1. Drugs in the pharmacy
2. Staff salary
3. Spectrometer in the laboratory
4. Machine a numeration
5. Ultra system machine
6. Centrifuge
7. Small surgery equipment
May Yahweh protect and bless Joseph Dumond and James Relf who used all the funds in their bank  account to sponsor this teachings such as flight tickets, accommodation, transport for Burundi Bishops and pastors, renting a conference hall, rent cars to go in countryside, fuel, books, brochures, supporting the the leading team led by Bishop Telesphore to take this message to Rwanda, DRC, Uganda and Tanzania. Be advised that the country of Burundi among the 4 poorest countries in the World. As we start to keep and obey the Torah, the curses will be removed on our country.

    The report on your trip was amazing. What struck me was the stand of President Pierre Nkurunziza to refuse the UN funding in 2015 on moral ground. Now, in 2017 Burundi is being blessed with the revelation of Torah truth in soil which is fertile.
    How, humbling to be part of God’s plan for this part of His world.
    And , wow video 12, isn’t like any Shabbat l’ve been to 🙂
