Some Choose to Be Blind-Others Follow Them Blindly

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.

Shabbat Shalom Royal Family of Yehovah,

The Third Tithe Year

I want to thank again those of you who have stepped forward to help fulfill the command to take care of the widows and orphans in the 3rd year. I mean that. I really do want to thank you all for doing this. Again, I do not want you to miss out on the blessing.

I want to share another letter from a sister who has been able to receive your gifts.

Bro Joe and My Beautiful Sighted Moon Family:
I just want to express my utmost thankfulness for the awareness you have given to our community of the importance of the widow’s tithe. When my husband of 42 years passed away within a month of getting his diagnosis of lung cancer, it was still a shock. Unfortunately, I always felt he would die of cancer because of the amount he smoked, but I never made any provisions or had thoughts in terms of being a widow.
I was not prepared in any way for the changes that came, mentally, physically and certainly financially. So needless to say there has been a major struggle to keep up and maintain my home and try to keep the bills paid. The following year my Mother had a stroke and I became a care giver which cost me the part time job that I had allowing debt to accumulate. Even with my Mothers passing, my health and strength is not what it used to be and getting a good job at my age and energy is not easy.
So, I pray I can convey what a blessing this has been when Joe began to teach about the widow’s tithe and those of Sighted Moon began to respond and I became a recipient. Not only has it relieved my struggle during that time, but it is a great blessing to receive from those whom Father has blessed, knowing His hand of care is in it(taking from others has not ever been an easy thing for me to do –always wanted to be the giver) Sadly, I do not know of any ministries that I have been a part of or know of that make any effort to take care of their own widows and orphans as the Scripture says to do. I sincerely thank you and those givers of Sighted Moon who hear and answer. Blessings to all and may our Father bless you a 1000 fold.
With an abundance of love and appreciation,

Are you Keeping the Third Tithe Year?

I want to remind and ask you all, have you remembered the widows and the orphans this year thus far? Many of you have and I want to thank you on their behalf. I will keep reminding you about this responsibility for the entirety of this year.

2022 is the 6th year of the 4th Sabatical cycle. And anyone who has been reading our website for any time will know how to prove beyond all doubt when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are. Once you have done that then you will know when the 3rd and the 6th year of the Sabbatical Cycles are. We are told to raise a tithe every third year for this cause.

Here is a very severe warning from Yehovah to each of us.

Exo 22:21  You shall neither vex a stranger nor oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. You shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. If you afflict them in any way, and they cry at all to Me, I will surely hear their cry. And My wrath shall become hot, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall be widows, and your sons fatherless.

We have now sent out in time for Shavuot, our second gift offering that you sent in for the widows and orphans. We have also supported a couple of other ministries that aid us in doing this work. This will fulfill the Levite part of the commandment. It was our desire to get the funds to them in time for Shavuot as we are told to do in Deuteronomy.

Deu 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.

Deu 14:29  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.

We will soon be making another gift to them. If you do not know of anyone in the faith who is a widow or orphan then you can send it to us. Make sure you write me to let me know that those funds are for the widows and I will see to it they get it. But if you do not write me then I will not know where to apply your donation.

May each one of you who has given to this cause, be blessed as Boaz was blessed by Yehovah for his generosity. May each one of be known for your support of the laws that will make the Kingdom of Yehovah strong and righteous. And may Yehovah bless you so that what you give is never missed and you never lack for your generosity towards Yehovah’s heart.

Shabbat Zoom Meeting

There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on the Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our YouTube channel.

What are we doing and why do we teach this way?

We are going to discuss both sides of an issue and then let you choose. It is the work of the Ruach (Spirit) to direct and to teach you.

The medieval commentator Rashi wrote that the Hebrew word for wrestle (avek) implies that Jacob was “tied”, for the same word is used to describe knotted fringes in a Jewish prayer shawl, the tzitzityot. Rashi says, “thus is the manner of two people who struggle to overthrow each other, that one embraces the other and knots him with his arms”.

Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle. We are Wrestling with Yehovah as we grapple with His Word. It is an intimate act, symbolizing a relationship in which Yehovah and I and you are bound together. My wrestling is a struggle to discover what Yehovah expects of us, and we are “tied” to the One who assists us in that struggle.

Today, many say Israel means “Champion of God”, or better — the “Wrestler of God”.

Our Torah sessions each Shabbat teach you and encourage you to constantly challenge, question, argue against, as well as view alternative views and explanations of the Word. In other words, we are to “wrestle with the Word” to get to the truth. Jews worldwide believe that you need to wrestle with the Word and constantly challenge Dogma, Theology, and views or else you will never get to the Truth.

We are not like most churches where “The preacher talks and everyone listens.” We encourage everyone to participate, to question and to contribute what they know on the subject being discussed. We want you to be a champion wrestler of the Word of Yehovah. We want you to wear the title of Israel, knowing that you not only know but are capable to explain why you know the Torah to be true with logic and facts.

We have a few rules though. Let others talk and listen. There is no discussion about UFO’s Nephilim, Vaccines or conspiracy-type subjects. We have people from around the world with different world views. Not everyone cares who is the President of any particular country. Treat each other with respect as Fellow wrestlers of the word. Some of our subjects are hard to understand and require you to be mature and if you do not know, then listen to gain knowledge and understanding and hopefully wisdom. The very things you are commanded to ask Yehovah for and He gives to those who ask.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.

We start off with some music and then some prayers and it’s as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.

Sabbath services begin May 14 at 12:30 PM EDT we will be doing prayers songs and teaching from this hour.

Shabbat Services will begin at 1:15 pm Eastern.

We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.

Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Moses Ascends the Mount for 40 Days

This Sabbath, today May 14, 2022,  is the 7th day after Shavuot and it is the day Moses went into the cloud and began the 40-day count with Yehovah.

Exo 24:12  And Jehovah said to Moses, Come up to Me in the mountain, and be there. And I will give you tablets of stone, and the Law, and commandments which I have written, so that you may teach them.

Exo 24:13  And Moses rose up, and his attendant Joshua. And Moses went up into the mountain of God.

Exo 24:14  And he said to the elders, You stay here for us until we come again to you. And behold, Aaron and Hur are with you. If any man has any matters to do, let him come to them.

Exo 24:15  And Moses went up into the mountain, and a cloud covered the mountain.

Exo 24:16  And the glory of Jehovah abode upon Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

Exo 24:17  And the sight of the glory of Jehovah was like devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the sons of Israel.

Exo 24:18  And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and went up into the mountain. And Moses was in the mountain forty days and forty nights.

Let me now share with you a commentary from on this subject. What is the importance of the 40 days?


After the Giving of the Torah, Moses went up Mount Sinai for 40 days. After the Golden Calf, he went up another 40 days, and then he went up the final time for yet another 40 days to secure complete forgiveness from G‑d. What’s up with the number 40?


The number 40 is actually highly symbolic in the Torah, but since you ask specifically about why Moses had to go up the mountain for 40 days and nights, I’ll address that first.

Forty Days for a Baby to Form

The Talmud explains that it takes an embryo 40 days to form in its mother’s womb.1 Thus, just as it takes 40 days of preparation for a new being to emerge, so, too, it generally takes 40 days for a new spiritual entity to come into being.2

Forty Years to Comprehend

The Talmud tells us that “one does not come to fully comprehend the knowledge of his teacher until 40 years [of study].”3 Since a day “up on high” is certainly equal to a year down below, Moses learned Torah from G‑d atop the mountain for 40 days so that he could fully comprehend the Torah.4

Other Forties: Something Deeper

If we look in the Torah, we find many other things that are associated specifically with the number 40:

In the episode of Noah and the Flood, we learn that it rained for 40 days and 40 nights.

A mikvah needs to have 40 se’ah (a measurement) of water in order to be able to purify someone. In fact, this is one of the explanations as to why, during the Flood, it rained for 40 days, corresponding to the 40 se’ah of a mikvah.

Regarding the maximum amount of lashes one could get, the Torah describes the amount as 40 (albeit in practice, one could get a maximum of 39).

According to the Talmud, it took “40 minus one”5 types of creative work to build the Mishkan (Tabernacle).

What is the common thread here? What is the symbolism of the number 40?

(The kabbalah section removed)

The Ultimate Forty

The Lubavitcher Rebbe explains that just as the first time the Jews went into the Land of Israel, it was after a “preparation” of 40 years in the desert, so, too, the number 40 is associated with the final redemption.11

In the Talmud, Rabbi Eliezer says: “The messianic era will be 40 years, as it is stated: ‘Forty years will I strive with the generation.’”12 The commentaries explain that Rabbi Eliezer was not limiting the time of the messianic era. On the contrary, what he is referring to are 40 years of the “messianic era” that will precede and prepare for the Resurrection of the Dead.13 Indeed, the Zohar states that there will be “40 years” until the Resurrection of the Dead14 (or to be more precise, as the Lubavitcher Rebbe explains, it will take 40 years until the resurrection process is completed15).

May it be speedily in our days!

By Yehuda Shurpin
A noted scholar and researcher, Rabbi Yehuda Shurpin serves as content editor at, and writes the popular weekly Ask Rabbi Y column. Rabbi Shurpin is the rabbi of the Chabad Shul in St. Louis Park, Minn., where he resides with his wife, Ester, and their children.

The one section I would like you to look at and contemplate is what was taken from the Talmud, Sanhedrin 99A.

In the Talmud, Rabbi Eliezer says: “The messianic era will be 40 years, as it is stated: ‘Forty years will I strive with the generation.’”12 The commentaries explain that Rabbi Eliezer was not limiting the time of the messianic era. On the contrary, what he is referring to are 40 years of the “messianic era” that will precede and prepare for the Resurrection of the Dead.

Consider our 120th Jubilee Cycle. It is also the 70th Jubilee cycle of the 70 weeks allotted to Israel as told to us in Daniel 9.

But also consider that from the Jubilee after the temple was destroyed, we are now in the 40th Jubilee Cycle now. What does this mean? I am not sure.

When we count from 2033, the time we believe the rapture or the resurrection of the Saints will take place, by 40 years we arrive at the year 1994. 1994 was the year I left the Worldwide Church of God and began to study on my own. I did go back to the United Church of God at 9/11 for 7 years but my studies continued.

But then if we count the messianic age as being the 40 years before 2045, or the start of the 7th millennium, then we end up in the year 2005. 2005 was the year I first learned about the Barley, crescent moon. It was also the year when I was tested at Passover to see which calendar I would adhere to, either Hillel with the Church of God or the Crescent moon and barley. Once I passed this test then that very day of Passover, Yehovah revealed to me the Sabbatical and Jubilee years and when they were.

We believe the dead will be raised up on Shavuot in 2033. Our reasons for this have been explained in detail in our recent teachings about Shavuot, so we will not do so here now again.

They said the Talmud says the Embryo takes 40 days to form.

The baby is 40 weeks from conception to full term or 280 days. If the birth of Israel is to take place at the start of the 7th Millennium then 2044 -280 (a day for a year) would bring you back to 1764 AD. If we use 2033 as the year to count back from then 2033-280 = 1753 AD.

I am just looking and this is what I see.

The First Great Awakening was a period when spirituality and religious devotion were revived. This feeling swept through the American colonies between the 1730s and 1770s. The revival of Protestant beliefs was part of a much broader movement that was taking place in England, Scotland, and Germany at that time. Many different preachers spoke the message that being truly religious meant repenting (confessing sins) and devoting oneself to God. The movement was popular in Europe, but even more popular in the American colonies. Tens of thousands of non-religious colonists were converted to Protestant beliefs. This had a huge impact on church attendance, homes, workplaces, entertainment, and colleges.

The Second Great Awakening can be divided into three phases. The first phase (1795–1810) was associated with frontier camp meetings conducted by American preachers James McGready, John McGee, and Barton W. Stone in Kentuckyand Tennessee. The second and more conservative phase of the awakening (1810–25) centred in the Congregational churches of New England under the leadership of theologians Timothy Dwight, Lyman Beecher, Nathaniel W. Taylor, and Asahel Nettleton. The third and final phase (1825–35) stemmed from the activities of evangelist Charles Grandison Finney, who began his revivalism in small towns in western New York in the 1820s but eventually conducted revival meetings in the largest cities in the United States and Britain.

The third great revival began in 1890 and went on to about 1930. We cover this in much more detail in our next book The Restoration of All Things. This book will be one of a three-part series. It is being edited now.

I would like to also quote you the following and I want you to note when they mention the year 1994 and the significant events that began then.

Since the early 20th century, different religious organizations have been teaching a belief in Jesus (called Yeshua by adherents) as mankind’s redeemer and savior from man’s own sinful nature and a lifestyle in keeping with the Torah, the Sabbath and the annual Feasts (or mo’adim, Holy Days).[citation needed] These include Messianic Judaism (to a very limited degree) in 1916, the Sacred Name Movement (SNM) in 1937, and the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) in the 1930s, and, later, the Hebrew Roots Movement.[citation needed] Thus far, the WCG has had the greatest impact on all organizations which teach these beliefs, including obedience to much of the Old Testament law, both nationally and internationally[4] until about 1994–95. Within a few years after the death of its founder, Herbert W Armstrong, in 1986, the succeeding church administration modified the denomination’s doctrines and teachings in order to be compatible with mainstream evangelical Christianity, while many members and ministers left and formed other churches that conformed to many, but, not all, of Armstrong’s teachings. Consequently, the WCG spawned numerous splinter groups,[5] with most of these new churches adopting names bearing the term “Church of God” (COG) and retaining the belief system developed by Armstrong.[6][better source needed]

In contrast, Hebrew Roots (or sometimes, Hebraic Roots) is a grassroots movement without an ecclesiastical superstructure and it does not adhere to the COG belief system, nor does it adhere to Messianic Judaism, or to the SNM, although there are commonalities. A number of its founders began teaching about the need to keep the 7th Day Sabbath, to observe annual Feasts, and to obey Old Testament commandments years before these topics were taught and accepted by some in the Christian churches. These early teachers include William Dankenbring (1964) and Dean Wheelock (1981) (both of whom had prior associations with different Churches of God), Joe Good (1978), and Brad Scott (1983). Batya Wootten’s curiosity about the Gentile majority in many Messianic Jewish congregations resulted in her first book about the two houses of Israel in 1988. This was later followed by her 1998 book entitled Who is Israel (now renamed in its 4th edition as Redeemed Israel).[6]

In 1994, Dean and Susan Wheelock received their federal trademark[7] for the term “Hebrew Roots”, after which they began publishing the Hebrew Rootsmagazine in April/May 1998, and later a website at The goal of this group is “Exploring the Hebrew Roots of the Faith Once Delivered”, “roots” which go back to not only Yeshua and the Talmidim (Disciples), but to the Nazarenes[8] of the first century and, ultimately, the original Hebrews (Ivrim), Abrahamand his offspring, who were the first to “cross over” (which is one view of what “Hebrew” means in the Hebrew language). Those who continue in this Hebraic walk seek out the history, culture, and faith of the first century believers who, like Abraham and Moses obeyed God’s voice, charge, commandments, statutes, and laws (Gen 26:5). The 41,000[9] denominations of Christianity commonly believe that such obedience (viz, to the 613 Torah commands) is no longer required. This is largely due to a number of statements by Paul the Apostle.[10]

The Hebrew Roots movement began emerging as a distinct phenomenon in the mid-1990s (1993–96).[6] In 1997, Dean Cozzens of Open Church Ministries (Colorado Springs, CO) published “The Hebrew Movement”, claiming that God had foreordained four major moves for the 20th century, Pentecostalism, faith healing, the Charismatic movement and finally the Hebrew Roots movement, the “final stage of empowerment” before Christ returns. Several Hebrew Roots ministries are now preferring to use the term Awakening instead of the term “movement” which has been used widely since the 1960s to define politically oriented movements.[6]

1994, 1995, was the end of the 69th Jubilee Cycle. It was about to usher in the start of the 70th week.

Collapse Is Happening Before Our Eyes

• Foreign central banks aren’t dumb…

• Gold isn’t volatile, the dollar is volatile…

• Gold is about preserving your wealth in the long term…

Dear Reader,

Analysts and authors, myself included, have been warning about the collapse of the dollar as the global reserve currency for years. I described this prospect in my first book, Currency Wars (2011), and in several other books in the years since.

This process can take many years. For example, the decline of sterling as the leading global reserve currency played out over 30 years from 1914 (the beginning of World War I) to 1944 (the Bretton Woods conference).

Still, events today are playing out so quickly that the collapse is happening in front of our eyes.

It’s no longer a matter of a major event on the horizon; it’s occurring in real-time. Russia has just linked the ruble to gold at a rate of 5,000 rubles to one gram of gold. China is discussing with Saudi Arabia the prospect of paying for oil in yuan.

Israel is likewise considering taking yuan in exchange for its high-tech exports. China and Russia are creating new payments systems to avoid U.S. sanctions.

You get the point.

Foreign Central Banks Aren’t Dumb

Central banks have been net buyers of physical gold since 2010. Countries all over the world are considering dumping dollars for fear that they will be next on the list to have their dollar assets frozen or seized the way the U.S. seized the dollar-denominated assets of the Central Bank of Russia.

That makes sense. What’s the point of holding dollars in your reserve positions if the U.S. can freeze those accounts on a whim? Americans tend to take dollar strength for granted, but that’s a mistake. It’s helpful at times like this to get a foreign perspective.

The U.S. uses the dollar strategically to reward friends and punish enemies. The use of the dollar as a weapon is not limited to trade wars and currency wars, although the dollar is used tactically in those disputes. The dollar is much more powerful than that.

The dollar can be used for regime change by creating hyperinflation, bank runs and domestic dissent in countries targeted by the U.S. The U.S. can depose the governments of its adversaries or at least blunt their policies without firing a shot.

U.S. financial sanctions are a kind of weaponization of the dollar, which can be turned on any country, not just Russia.

The Oldest Form of Money

As of now, there is no single global currency that’s in a good position to replace the dollar as the leading reserve currency. But there is one monetary asset that could replace the dollar in reserve positions, although it’s not one issued by a central bank.

That asset is gold.

Gold is the oldest form of money. The use of gold is the ideal way to avoid U.S. financial warfare. Gold is physical so it cannot be hacked. It is completely fungible (an element, atomic number 79) so it cannot be traced. Gold can be transported in sealed containers on airplanes so movements cannot be identified through wire transfer message traffic or satellite surveillance.

In The Mail

Brother Joseph ;

You are being proved correct and dead on ….. yet again.

As I have mentioned to you before I was taken back by your UN claim in your 2300 book – yet month by month those likely possible future scenarios you tossed out ; all appear to be lining up.

With Yehovah at your back; please don’t ever be discouraged as you are putting forth such important viewpoints and have many of us who love and believe in your work.

It is shame you did not come along some 300, 500 or 1,000 years earlier !      //.  Greg N.

Pope Francis Blames NATO

The Catholic leader can’t seem to condemn Russia’s invasion.

By The Editorial Board

May 3, 2022,

Shortly after America’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Pope Francis quoted former German Chancellor Angela Merkel while criticizing the 20-year war: “It is necessary to put an end to the irresponsible policy of intervening from outside and building democracy in other countries, ignoring the traditions of the peoples.”

The problem is that the Pope was quoting Vladimir Putin, not Mrs. Merkel. That gaffe came to mind when an Italian newspaper published an interview with the Pope Tuesday.

Francis suggested that perhaps “NATO barking at Russia’s gate” had caused Mr. Putin to invade his neighbor, which doesn’t belong to the alliance. “I have no way of telling whether his rage has been provoked,” he continued. “but I suspect it was maybe facilitated by the West’s attitude.” Asked whether it was right to send weapons so Ukraine can defend itself, the Pope said, “I don’t know,” before criticizing the global arms trade.

Since the invasion, Francis has called for an end to the war and criticized the violence, but he hasn’t directly called out Russia for starting the conflict. Now that he finally speaks, he blames NATO for accepting members that want to avoid being invaded by Russia. What a terrible moral signal to send to dictators.

The Pope said he has requested an audience with Mr. Putin but hasn’t heard back. Asked whether he’d visit Kyiv, he said he must go to Moscow first: “If Putin decided to leave the door open . . . ” This is a pattern. Recall that the Pope declined to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in 2020, at least partly because of America’s opposition to the Vatican’s egregious deal-making with the Chinese Communist Party.

This isn’t about whether the Vatican aligns perfectly with the West or the U.S. Pope John Paul II was a vociferous critic of the 2003 Iraq War but kept the respect of those who remembered his opposition to Soviet imperialism. Consistency matters.

The Pope is the spiritual leader of more than one billion Catholics, but the moral authority behind the papacy—damaged as it is—can still transcend religion from time to time. This makes Francis’s equivocating on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine all the more frustrating for those who recall how powerful a force for good a Pope can be.

In the book of Daniel, we are told of a prophecy. This prophecy is one long prophecy about all the empires which Daniel saw in other dreams but now coming down to the time of the end, verse 35.

Dan 11:35  And many of those who understand shall stumble, to refine and purge them, and to make white, to the time of the end. Because it is still for the appointed time.

So this King is near the end of the Beast Power. The Beast Power is the EU. The head of the EU in power and strength and leadership is Germany. The god of Germany was Thor and this is the god they no longer regard.

Dan 11:37  He will not regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god. For he shall magnify himself above all.

Dan 11:38  But in his place he shall honor the god of forces; and a god whom his fathers did not know, he shall honor with gold and silver, and with precious stones and desirable things.

Dan 11:39  So he shall act in the fortresses of the strongholds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge. He shall multiply in glory, and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price.

If you understand the history of religion and who Thor represents then you will know it is Cush and or Nimrod as well as Asshur. Yes, it does get confusing after 4100 years. But the god of forces is easy to understand.

The god of forces is also known as Cybele and here is how she is remembered in mythology. Do note that her consort is also her son and that her son which is her husband was castrated and reborn. This is precisely the same story we have expressed to you about Ham the son of Noah having sex with his mother. The child born from the adulterous relationship is Horus or the reborn Chaim or Canaan or Cush. We have also shown you how Cush castrated Chaim his father when we explain to you about New Year and father time and the new year baby. So we will not do so here now.

Originally a Phrygian goddess, Cybele (Greek Κυβέλη, sometimes given the etymology “she of the hair” if her name is Greek, not Phrygian) (Roman equivalent: Magna Mater or ‘Great Mother’) was the Earth Mother goddess who was worshipped in Anatolia from Neolithic times. Like Gaia or her Minoan equivalent Rhea, Cybele embodies the fertile earth, a goddess of caverns and mountains, walls and fortresses, nature, wild animals (especially lions and bees). Her title ‘Mistress of the Animals,’ which is also borne by the Minoan Great Mother, reveals her ancient Paleolithic roots. She is a life-death-rebirth deity. Her consort, whose cult was introduced later, is her son Attis.

Cybele was supposed to have been born on Mount Ida in Asia Minor; this is the source of her epithet Idaea.

Cybele’s most ecstatic followers were castrated males called Galli by the Romans, who led the people in orgiastic ceremonies with wild music, drumming and dancing and drink. She was associated with the mystery religion concerning her son, Attis, who was castrated and resurrected.

Cybele was the god of walls and fortresses because she was the one who invented bricks and built the towers and ramparts to protect the cities they built. Cybele as the Magna Mater or Great Mother then becomes the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of god.

This Beast Power conquers under the unification of the religion devoted to Mary. The ancestors knew of Cybele as Semiramis and they knew Thor as Cush or Nimrod or even as Chaim. But the god they did not know is the newest god on the block and that is Allah and Islam who came on the world scene in 700 AD.

We read about the blessing that Isaac gives to Esau which is about to come true in our day.

Gen 27:38  And Esau said to his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me, me also, my father. And Esau lifted up his voice and wept.

Gen 27:39  And Isaac his father answered and said to him, Behold! Your dwelling shall be of the fatness of the earth and of the dew of heaven from above.

Gen 27:40  And by your sword you shall live, and shall serve your brother. And it shall be when you shall have the dominion, you shall break his yoke from off your neck.

Yair Davidiy claims Esau to be Germany today. Esau married into the family of the Hittites who we have shown you along with the Assyrians become the German people today.

Gen 26:34  And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite;

Gen 26:35  who were a grief of spirit to Isaac and to Rebekah.

We then read about Esau marrying into the Ishmaelites so it is not hard to understand that the two groups can be found today in the same people. Those who hate Jacob.

Gen 28:8  and when Esau saw that the daughters of Canaan did not please Isaac his father;

Gen 28:9  then Esau went to Ishmael, and took Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebajoth, to the wives which he had for his wife.

Ishmael is believed by Islam to be the rightful heir of the promises, through Esau to this day.

I am mentioning all of this background information next so that you can see and understand what is happening from a prophetic point of view as the news is showing you that the Pope is blaming NATO for the war with Russia. This is huge in understanding what is going on. The news this week has Finland and Denmark racing to join NATO. Sweden is also considering joining NATO and this is provoking or confirming Russia’s fears of its expansion to its borders. All of this will cause Putin to feel justified in his actions.

During the war with ISIS in 2014-2015, millions of Muslims fled Syria and walked to Europe. Angela Merkel opened her arms to them and over a million alone came to Germany. We have reported here many articles about how Christians are converting to Islam, how the soap opera’s on TV are showing and endorsing the conversions to Islam. You have read in city after city where there are now, “no-go” zones where Islamic law rules and no outsiders dare go. Even the police no longer patrol these areas.

I say all of this just so I can show you what is taking place is in perfect harmony with what is told to you in your Bibles that would come. Now read Revelation.

That 8th empire is about to rise up. This war in Ukraine is causing the EU nations and NATO to unite unlike anything else in history. And when they do and become this final empire of Daniels prophecy……

Rev 17:11  And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.

Rev 17:12  And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, who have received no kingdom yet, but will receive authority as kings one hour with the beast.

Rev 17:13  These have one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

Rev 17:14  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them. For He is Lord of lords and King of kings. And those with Him are the called and elect and faithful ones.

Rev 17:15  And he says to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues,

Rev 17:16  and the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked. And they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

Rev 17:17  For God gave into their hearts to do His mind, and to act with one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast until the Words of God will be fulfilled.

Rev 17:18  And the woman whom you saw is the great city which has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.

The Pope thinks he can remove himself from NATO, and or the EU. By not condemning Russia the Pope is setting Catholicism up to be hated and destroyed by an Islamic ruling Europe and the Middle East. I know this alone does not bring that about. I am showing you the starting cracks. Watch.

‘Super blood moon’ set to amaze in total lunar eclipse

By Theresa Braine
New York May 10, 2022 at 6:00 am

On Sunday night, the moon will pass entirely through Earth’s shadow, turning blood red as our planet blocks the sunlight and lends the hue of its sunsets to our satellite.

The show will start very subtly at 9:32 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, when the moon enters the part of Earth’s shadow that only partially covers the sun, the penumbra. At 10:27 or so, it will move into the totality phase, which will last about 85 minutes, according to

“The real action begins when the moon starts to disappear as it enters the umbra at about 10:28 p.m. EDT on the 15th,” NASA says. “An hour later, entirely within the umbra, the moon is a ghostly copper color. Totality lasts for an hour and a half before the moon begins to emerge from the central shadow. Throughout the eclipse, the Moon is moving through the constellation Libra.”

The eclipse is happening when the moon is near perigee – its closest approach to Earth – making the orb appear 7% larger than normal, according to NASA.

“For 84 minutes, the Moon will cross through Earth’s shadow, making the full Moon appear a coppery red as it reflects back all of Earth’s sunrises and sunsets,” NASA says.

The spectacle will be visible across most of North America, all of South America, parts of Europe and a large portion of Africa, though in the latter locales it will already be Monday. This means up to 2.7 billion people will be able to catch at least a glimpse, according to, calling it a must-see event.

It’s a good one to see, since the moon’s proximity makes it a supermoon. Just a day and a half later the moon will be at its closest approach to Earth for the month. This will also create higher than usual tides, said.

Watching it takes something of a commitment, as Ed Krupp, director of Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, told He strongly recommends monitoring the entire event, since every lunar eclipse is different, predictions notwithstanding.

“Events in nature have extraordinary nuance, and you have to pay attention,” Krupp told Timeanddate.

Morons or Obstinate?

In this article, I am going to be addressing the things Nehemia Gordon and Michael Rood have said in a broadcast Nehemia just sent out again this week. I have the highest respect and regard for both men and have learned so much from them both.

It was at a Rood Awakening event in Lansing Michigan in the winter of 2004/05 when I first met both of them. It was at this same event that they taught me about the barley and crescent moon and the name of Yehovah. Before this event, I had never heard of any of this. And for that, I am eternally thankful to them both as it turned me onto the road I am now on, learning more about my Father and His truths every day. Not settling for staying where I am, but to study to show myself approved.

2Ti 2:14  Put them in memory of these things, charging them before the Lord not to dispute about words to no profit, to the subverting of the hearers.

2Ti 2:15  Study earnestly to present yourself approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.

2Ti 2:16  But shun profane, vain babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.

What do you call someone who chooses to remain ignorant? Who choose not to know or having been informed of truths that could make them understand, ignores the information given to them and revert back to being ignorant.

Is the word I am looking for Obstinate – perversely adhering to an opinion, purpose, or course in spite of reason, arguments, or persuasion.

Maybe this is a cognitive bias. A psychological conflict resulting from incongruous beliefs and attitudes held simultaneously.

Or maybe it is what is called the ostrich effect. Not wanting to see the truth and burying your head in the sand while your ass is flapping in the wind. Or maybe it is the three monkeys, who see nothing, hear nothing, and say nothing.

I am really struggling to understand why people whom I love and consider brilliant, and to whom I have sent thousands of people to learn from in the past, would choose to remain ignorant of truths that are readily available to anyone who wants to learn. People who say they want to draw closer to Yehovah. Who openly pray “Father open my eyes that I may see your wonderful truths.”

I just do not know why someone like Nehemia Gordon or Michael Rood, chooses not to know and to remain ignorant about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years.

This was the audio recording Nehemia sent out this week of his interview with Michael Rood talking about the Shemitah Years.

Hebrew Voices #71 – When is Shemitah (Sabbatical Year) [Rebroadcast]

In the original Torah Pearls with Jono Vandor, all three of them gave me a shout out for the work I had done on the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. That shout out is no longer there, it has been edited out.

I guess the answer as to whether a person is obstinate or not is whether they want to learn the truth or have settled for the status quo.

Are they saying, OK, I have learned enough, I have had enough changes in my life and I am not going beyond this point? At what point do we stop drawing closer to Yehovah? When do we apply the brakes and say no more? Who would want to say that at all?

Psa 119:18  Open my eyes, so that I may behold wonderful things out of Your Law.

This is a prayer Keith Johnson, Nehemia and Michael pray often in many of their broadcasts. They have brought us the truths about the barley and the crescent moon in order to keep the calendar and the Holy Days at the proper time. They have brought us the truth about how to pronounce the Father’s name as Yehovah. They have researched the historical records to find zero usages of the name Yahweh as many today want to use, and in this research, proven that Yehovah is the only name found in all the manuscripts looked at thus far. Almost 3000.

So I am beside myself, not understanding why they will not study the truths that are available to them about when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are. They do not agree with the Rabbis on many subjects but on this one subject, they revert to the Rabbinic view. Why?

Why would anyone choose to remain blind and ignorant of Yehovah’s truths?

Read this story about Yehshua healing the blind man named Bartimaeus.

Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind

Joh 9:1  And passing by, He saw a man who was blind from birth.

Joh 9:2  And His disciples asked Him, saying, Master, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?

Joh 9:3  Jesus answered, Neither has this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God might be revealed in him.

Joh 9:4  I must work the works of Him who sent Me, while it is day. Night comes when no man can work.

Joh 9:5  As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the world.

Joh 9:6  And when He had spoken these things, He spat on the ground and made clay from the spittle. And He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.

Joh 9:7  And He said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam (which translated is Sent). Therefore he went and washed and came seeing.

Joh 9:8  Then the neighbors and those who had seen him before, that he was blind, said, Is this not he who was sitting and begging?

Joh 9:9  Some said, This is he. Others said, He is like him. He said, I am he.

Joh 9:10  Then they said to him, How were your eyes opened?

Joh 9:11  He answered and said, A man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, Go to the pool of Siloam and wash. And going and washing, I received sight.

Joh 9:12  Then they said to him, Where is he? He said, I do not know.

Joh 9:13  They brought him who once was blind to the Pharisees.

Joh 9:14  And it was a sabbath when Jesus made the clay and opened his eyes.

Joh 9:15  Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said to them, He put clay upon my eyes, and I washed, and I see.

Joh 9:16  Therefore some of the Pharisees said, This man is not from God, because he does not keep the sabbath. Others said, How can a man, a sinner, do such miracles? And there was a division among them.

Joh 9:17  They said to the blind man again, What do you say about him, for he has opened your eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

Joh 9:18  But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind and had received his sight, until they called the parents of him having received sight.

Joh 9:19  And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, whom you say was born blind? How then does he now see?

Joh 9:20  His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind.

Joh 9:21  But by what means he now sees, we do not know. Or who has opened his eyes, we do not know. He is of age, ask him. He will speak for himself.

Joh 9:22  His parents spoke these things because they feared the Jews, for the Jews had already agreed that if anyone confessed that He was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue.

Joh 9:23  Therefore his parents said, He is of age, ask him.

Joh 9:24  Then a second time they called the man who was blind and said to him, Give glory to God. We know that this man is a sinner.

Joh 9:25  He answered and said, Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that being blind, now I see.

Joh 9:26  Then they said to him again, What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes?

Joh 9:27  He answered them, I have told you already, and you did not hear. Why do you want to hear it again? Do you also desire to be His disciples?

Joh 9:28  Then they reviled him and said, You are his disciple, but we are Moses’ disciples.

Joh 9:29  We know that God spoke to Moses, but we do not know from where this man is.

Joh 9:30  The man answered and said to them, Why, this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know from where He is, and He has opened my eyes.

Joh 9:31  But we know that God does not hear sinners, but if anyone is God-fearing and does His will, He hears him.

Joh 9:32  From everlasting it was not heard that anyone opened the eyes of one who was born blind.

Joh 9:33  If this One were not of God, He could do nothing.

Joh 9:34  They answered and said to him, You were altogether born in sins, and do you teach us? And they cast him out.

Joh 9:35  Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and finding him, He said to him, Do you believe on the Son of God?

Joh 9:36  And he answered and said, Who is He, Lord, that I might believe on Him?

Joh 9:37  And Jesus said to him, You have both seen Him, and it is He who is speaking with you.

Joh 9:38  And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshiped Him.

Joh 9:39  And Jesus said, I have come into this world for judgment, that they who do not see might see, and that they who see might be made blind.

Joh 9:40  And those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, Are we also blind?

Joh 9:41  Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin. But now you say, We see. Therefore your sin remains.

Pay close attention to the words Yehshua speaks in verse 39.

I have come into this world for judgment, that they who do not see might see, and that they who see might be made blind. And those of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, Are we also blind? Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you would have no sin. But now you say, We see. Therefore your sin remains.

When you break one of the commandments you are sinning. The 4th commandment covers the Sabbath, the Holy Days and the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. When you do not keep them you are sinning. You know about them, and you even know when they are and if you choose not to keep them, then you are sinning. You are willfully blind!

The Command in the Sabbatical year is not to plant, not to harvest, you are to stock up in the 6th year. Many claim this is only for in the land of Israel. But what about the forgiveness of debts and setting the slaves free? And returning back to your own land, was this also only to be applied in the land of Israel?

The Redeemer of the family land. All those teachings about the redeemer, does that only apply to the land of Israel?

Joh 8:31  Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.

Joh 8:32  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Below the audio broadcast on Nehemia’s Wall, he has posted the following tombstone from Zoar. Nehemia has talked to me a number of times about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. He knows I have the most extensive collection of tombstone information (currently 30) and that I have been able to show how they all accurately relate the proper times of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years and all of them, but one, match as to when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are.

A Jewish tombstone from Zoar at the southern end of the Dead Sea on display at the Israel Museum. The tombstone calls into question the current Rabbinical counting of the Shemitah cycle. The tombstone says in Aramaic:
הדה נפש [ברה] דמלוס דמית יום שובתה בעסרין וחמשה יומין בירח טיבת בשתה קדמיתה דשאבועה שנת תלת מא ותמנין ושת שנין לחרבן בית מקדשה שלום על ישראל
“This is the tombstone of the Son of Melos, who died on the Sabbath Day, on the twenty-fifth day of the month of Tevet, in the first year of the Sabbatical cycle, in the year three hundred eighty-six of the destruction of the Temple. Shalom upon Israel.”
Jewish sources date the destruction of the Temple to 68 CE, which would mean the tombstone probably dates to Saturday December 12, 453 CE. According to the modern Rabbinical counting of the Shemitah (Sabbatical years), that should have been the 7th year in the Shemitah cycle i.e. a Sabbatical year, whereas the tombstone clearly identifies it as the 1st year of the Shemitah cycle. Based on this tombstone, the (Rabbinical) year ending Sept. 13, 2015 was NOT the end of a Shemitah-Sabbatical year. Rather, the Shemitah year would have been August 2013 through September 2014, making the current year the 2nd year of the Shemitah cycle.
The current Rabbinical counting of the Shemitah cycle goes back to Maimonides in the 12th century who claimed that his system was the sole tradition of the Land of Israel. This tombstone from Zoar predates Maimonides by 700 years and proves that he was wrong.

Nehemia knows this and he also knows that Rambam, whom he just mentioned also tells you when the Sabbatical years are and that the current understanding of the Jews is off by 1 1/2 years because of tradition. Rambam even said so and in our interview Rambam proved that what I was saying was in fact the truth.

You can hear Nehemia try and trap me with the year that Maimonides, Rambam tells us is a Shemitah year. You can also hear Nehemia say I have more tombstone dates than he did.

But even though we have all this wealth of information and the ability to discover the truth in this age we now live in, people and teachers choose not to know. They would rather teach others that we cannot know.



The question is do you want to know. Do you want to stop being blind? Do you want to be set free, which is what the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are all about?


We show those who want to know how to figure out when every Sabbatical and Jubilee year is with just one verse in the bible.

2Ki 19:29  And this shall be a sign to you: you shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springs up of the same. And in the third year, sow and reap and plant vineyards and eat the fruits of them.

With just this one verse and understanding of when this event took place in history, anyone can know every single Sabbatical year and every single Jubilee year going forward and backward from this year of 701 BC. And when you do this, you will discover that all known Sabbatical Year, ALL OF THEM, will line up and match this counting by 7. ALL OF THEM!

We explain this to all of those who can’t figure this out in our book Remembering the Sabbatical Year of 2016. We show you how to prove it and to double-check the years with others so you know it is right. You can order your copy just by going to If you’re a widow we have a special deal for you. Just write me to find out.

You do not have to remain ignorant. You can have your eyes opened. Or maybe you like being blind and not knowing the truth.

Nehemia says that the Rabbis say that the going out of the Shemitah is confusing. The Rabbis say it was 69 AD or possibly 68 AD. We have shown this many times how Rabbi Yose, a student of Rabbi Akiva fudged the dates to build a case for Simon Bar Kochbah as the Messiah using the Daniel 9 Prophecy. And if it is confusing then why in blue blazes does no one want to figure it out? What are you afraid of?

If you want to know about this and how Rabbi Yose did this to which the Rabbis have accepted as fact then read it in The Sabbatical and Jubilee Cycle which is free on our website. It is free. You can download it today and begin to see these truths tonight. You do not have to remain ignorant. You can have your eyes opened. It will be a miracle to be able to see the Torah unlike you have ever seen before.

To just read about how Rabbis Yose did this in order to support Simon bar Kochbah as the Messiah, then just go and read this one chapter.

If you want proof, historical undeniable proof as to which year the Temple fell, whether or not it was 70, 69, or 68 AD then just read this one chapter of this book. The Jews in the years 68 and 69 were growing crops in the fields. Something they would never have done if 68 or 69 were Sabbatical years. They stored those crops in the Sabbatical year of 70 which is what the zealots burned and the fact that they had no crops in the field and resorted to cannibalism in 70 AD proves which year they were letting the land rest. All you have to do is look to understand this simple truth. They had crops in the fields in 68 and 69 as history proves.

You do not have to remain ignorant. It is a choice that people make. They choose not to know. They CHOOSE this rather than understand the truth. They choose to remain ignorant and blind.

When you know this one truth about when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are, then Yehovah opens your eyes to understand exactly how they reveal prophetic messages. You will no longer be groping in the dark guessing about end-time prophecy.

Nehemia speaks of takanot laws which also abolish the Torah. To do away  or dismiss the Sabbatical and Jubilee years or to say we can’t know when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are is a takanot.

Nehemia also said in that interview with Michael that no one knows when the Jubilee years are, because after the temple was destroyed they decided to no longer keep them. This is a common misconception that they abolished the Jubilee when the northern ten tribes went into exile and then again when the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD. This is false and easily shown just by looking at the 12 contracts in the cave of  Wadi Murabba‘. They clearly show that they were still observing the Sabbatical and Jubilee year in 133 AD and 134 AD. 12 different contracts all keeping the Sabbatical in 133 AD and the Jubilee year in 134. They did not abolish keeping the Jubilee years. THEY KNEW WHEN THEY WERE! Why don’t we? Because most want to remain blind and ignorant. It is easier that way.

In the tombstone of Zoar, they too have recorded their deaths according to the Sabbatical years and there are two if my memory serves me correctly attesting to the Jubilee year. One for sure maybe two. I forget right now.

Let’s take the debate about whether or not we need to keep it outside of the land of Israel off the table. Each of the tombstones attests to the fact that they felt they had to keep the Sabbatical and Jubilee years when they are clearly not living in the land of Israel during their time 400 years after the Temple was destroyed. But for argument’s sake, we will not even debate that here now.

The evidence is overwhelming. Anyone with the eyes to see, who want to learn, can learn when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years are. I am living proof of that. I was so ignorant and so far from Yehovah and His truths when I was called. I do not know Hebrew. I can’t speak it. I never went to any university. I barely graduated from high school. I dug ditches my whole life. I was as ignorant of all things in the Bible as anyone could be.

But I chose not to remain ignorant of the laws of Yehovah. I no longer wanted to be blind as far as Yehovah words are concerned. I began to read and to study to show myself approved.

I cried out to Yehovah to show me, to give me wisdom and understanding. In order to get wisdom, I had to learn knowledge which means I had to read to learn and then understand. I HAD TO ASK YEHOVAH TO SHOW ME. And He did.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

Look how Yehovah blessed Bezaleel with what was needed to build the Tabernacle.

Exo 31:2  Behold, I, I have called by name Bezaleel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.

Exo 31:3  And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all workmanship,

Exo 31:4  to devise designs; to work in gold, and in silver, and in bronze,

Exo 31:5  and in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all workmanship.

All you have to do, all anyone has to do, is to ask Yehovah to help you to understand. Ask Him to remove the blinders that keep you from understanding. Then get off you ass and go and study it out. Prove it for yourself. Stop saying no one can know as your justification for not know, for remaining ignorant.

Look what else Yehovah gave to these other men who were going to help Bezaleel.

Exo 31:6  And behold, I have given to him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. And I have put wisdom in the hearts of all the wise-hearted, so that they may make all that I have commanded you:

Exo 31:7  the tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy-seat that is upon it, and all the vessels of the tabernacle,

Exo 31:8  and the table and its vessels, and the pure lampstand with all its vessels, and the altar of incense,

Exo 31:9  and the altar of burnt offering with all its vessels, and the laver and its base,

Exo 31:10  and the woven garments, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office,

Exo 31:11  and the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place. According to all that I have commanded you, they shall do.

Wisdom, knowledge and understanding is a gift from Yehovah. Just ask Him for it.

Pro 2:1  My son, if you will receive my words and hide my commandments with you,

Pro 2:2  so that you attend to wisdom, you shall extend your heart to understanding;

Pro 2:3  yea, if you cry after knowledge and lift up your voice for understanding;

Pro 2:4  if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures,

Pro 2:5  then you shall understand the fear of Jehovah and find the knowledge of God.

Pro 2:6  For Jehovah gives wisdom; out of His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Pro 2:7  He lays up sound wisdom for the righteous; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly.

Pro 2:8  He keeps the paths of judgment, and guards the way of His saints.

Pro 2:9  Then you shall understand righteousness and judgment and honesty, every good path.

Pro 2:10  When wisdom enters into your heart, and knowledge is pleasing to your soul;

Pro 2:11  judgment shall keep you, understanding shall keep you,

Pro 2:12  to deliver you from the way of the evil man, from the man who speaks wicked things;

Now pay attention to this next proverb.

Pro 9:10  The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Pro 9:11  For by Me your days shall be multiplied, and the years of your life shall be increased.

Pro 9:12  If you are wise, you shall be wise for yourself; but if you scorn, you alone shall bear it.

Look at the word scorn and understand.

Are those in authority interpreting, Nehemia, Keith, Michael, and Jono mocking and deriding those of us who say we are to keep the Sabbatical and Jubilee years and that you can know when they are to be kept? That my lack of being able to speak Hebrew means I can’t know the truth?

What are you going to do now with the knowledge that is before you? Will you learn when the Sabbatical years are? Will you keep them? Will you ask Yehovah for wisdom in understanding about this?

Many refuse to obey Yehovah about the weekly Sabbath understanding. Others refuse to keep the Holy Days but they keep the Sabbath. Of those who do keep the Holy Days and do know what calendar to keep that calendar by, fewer still will obey Yehovah and keep the Sabbatical year from Aviv 2023 to Aviv 2024, having proven to themselves when you are to do so.

If I who was once blind could figure it out, then why can’t you people who have gone to University and know Hebrew as your primary language? Those men whom Yehovah has blessed with a superior understanding of the entire Torah? Why will you not look into this?

1Co 1:27  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

1Co 1:28  and God has chosen the base things of the world, and things which are despised, and things which are not, in order to bring to nothing things that are;

1Co 1:29  so that no flesh should glory in His presence.

1Co 1:30  But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption;

1Co 1:31  so that, according as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”

Isa 29:13  And Jehovah said, Because this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips honor Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the command of men;

Isa 29:14  therefore, behold, I will go on doing among this people, a wonder, even a wonder. For the wisdom of their wise ones shall perish, and the understanding of their intelligent ones shall be hidden.

By the command of the taught ones who tell the people no one can know, they keep the people from knowing Yehovah more intimately.

Isa 29:18  And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of their gloom and darkness.

Isa 29:19  And the meek shall increase joy in Jehovah, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

I have written and called Michael Rood dozens and dozens of times. I have gotten through many times. They would rather put on Shabbat Night LIve someone teaching about aliens and demonic worship, than to sit down and investigate the truth about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. The only way Michael or Nehemia or Scott Laird will change their minds, is if there is an avalanche of emails and letters demanding for me to be brought on the show to explain this each step of the way. But until that happens they will continue to host silly subjects teaching people about aliens and things about Satan that are a waste of time, instead of teaching them about how to draw closer to Yehovah.

So are you ready to begin to demand Michael and Scott Laird interview me about this? Are you going to begin to withhold your donations to them until they do? Will you keep up the letter-writing campaign for weeks and months if need be?

They do not want to let you brethren, be the jury and have both sides of the story so you can decide. Let’s put the whole truth out on the table and let all the brethren see it and then let them decide. Are you willing to get involved and start writing to these men over and over until they react like the unrighteous judge did and relent?

Yehovah knows and is watching. Is this important to you or not?

Israel’s Failure to Hear and See

Isa 42:18  Hear, deaf ones; and blind ones look to see.

Isa 42:19  Who is blind but My servant? Or deaf, as My messenger whom I sent? Who is blind as he who is perfect, and blind as Jehovah’s servant?

Isa 42:20  You see many things, but do not pay attention. Your ears are open, but not any hears.

Isa 42:21  Jehovah is well pleased for His righteousness sake; He will magnify the Law and make it honorable.

Isa 42:22  But this is a people robbed and spoiled; all of them snared in holes, and they are hidden in prison-houses; they have been taken, and none delivers them; a prize, and none says, Give back.

Isa 42:23  Who among you will hear this? He will listen and hear for the time to come?

Isa 42:24  Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to robbers? Did not Jehovah, against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, nor did they obey His Law.

Isa 42:25  So He has poured on him the fury of His anger, and the strength of battle. And it has set him on fire all around, yet he did not know; and it burned him, yet he did not lay it to heart.

You all know how close we are to the end. You also know when the Tribulation is to begin. You know. So hear what Yehovah says to the Philadelphia Church in the book of Revelation.

Rev 3:10  Because you have kept the Word of My patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which will come upon all the habitable world, to try those who dwell upon the earth.

Rev 3:11  Behold, I come quickly. Hold fast to that which you have, so that no one may take your crown.

Rev 3:12  Him who overcomes I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will go out no more. And I will write upon him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from My God, and My new name.

Rev 3:13  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.


  1. David

    If Nehemiah, Michael Rood and other have done your Jubilee numbers, checked it themselves, and can prove it does not work, then they can genuinely say none of us can know. And they can then show you/us why. Anything less is either lazy or arrogance and pride on their part.

  2. Patti H

    Thank you for laying it all out for us to consider. It may be God’s design to bring us in to agreement later for His glory. See Jeremiah 3:18
    In those days the house of Judah will walk with the house of Israel, and they will come together from the land of the north to the land that I gave your fathers as an inheritance.

  3. Phyllis Mannering

    Thankyou again Joe. It saddens me to hear that Nehemia and others will not listen. The simple will confound the mighty. Could you please send me the Jubilee charts. Phyllis Mannering.


    Dear Joseph,

    This matter clearly pains your heart, as I am sure it pains the heart of Yehovah too. In my long years in the true faith, I too have tasted this same bitter fruit of disappointment in certain ministers of renown, who were great lovers of Israel and commanded a large following. In one case the man even admitted to me that he fully understood my position about the two houses of Israel, as he had learned it all from his own mother. He even sent me some of the books on the subject that had once belonged to his mum. The sad thing was; that even though he knew the truth he dare not preach it for fear of losing his congregation and his comfortable living. I too have some history with the Michael Rood organization, and I believe the main problem is that they do not wish to publicly proclaim the truth, as they fear it may lead either to a major loss of prestige or revenue, or both. The best thing to do is to simply walk away and let them be, especially as you know you have done your best.

  5. Elaine

    I am learning so much from you Joe that i couldn’t possibly learn on my own as i have always been math illiterate, ive been drawn to learn from you, ive not been drawn to learn from these others.i thank our Abba for bringing me to His Truth thru you. and i share as best as i can, and pray others will learn that we certainly can know how to keep His Holy days at the right time, He who has ears, let him hear.
