Sukkot & Blood Moons

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 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Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle.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 encouraged 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 September 4, 2021, the room will be open at 12:30 PM Eastern with singing and prayers until about 1:15 PM. You are all welcome to join and watch. It is not recorded. We will have our afternoon service after this. You are welcome to come and join us before during and after we are off the air.

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

Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Septennial Torah Portion

If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 5th year which is the 5th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to September 4, 2021, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about

Exodus 2

1 Kings 5-6

Psalm 106

Luke 16-17

If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.

New Moon

The Israeli New Moon Society has given us this picture to look for the new moon to begin the 8th month.

Torah Calendar provides this picture of the next crescent moon to be seen Wednesday Evening after sunset marking the start of the 8th month.

While most other groups will be keeping this next month as the 7th month, we respect them for keeping the Holy Days as best they can.

You and I know that the barley was Aviv at the end of February which is why we kept Passover on March 11, 2021. We then had the FIRST of the first fruits of wheat just as we were about to keep Shavuot. April 8, 2021. We had our second witness for this year.

When it came to the 5th month we again had another witness come forward with the start of the grape harvest. But this is not the end. Then we have another witness come forward showing us that the figs and the pomegranates were ready to begin the 7th month. And the Olives and Dates also came in at the start of the 7th month. We have this article from the Jerusalem Post about the dates being harvested on August 24, 2021.

I say all of this not to cause confusion or a fight. The confusion comes from those who are not aligned with Yehovah. They first point the finger at others and claim they are causing this confusion when in fact they need to stop and look at themselves. Yes, it is possible they got it wrong. And to keep the Sabbath or Holy Days at the wrong time is sin.

When we first learned that keeping Christmas and Easter was a sin we repented and it was a big deal to walk away from our families who would not give it up at that time. We then began to follow the Hillel calendar until we learned about the Barley and the Crescent moon. Once again we had to walk away from our assemblies and synagogues to continue to obey Yehovah and all He was showing us.

In 2016, I had my first split with the Barley group and even then Nehemia himself confirmed the barley was indeed Aviv when we kept it a full month before the rest. Last year in 2020 and again this year in 2021, we have been separated from the rest of the Barely Calendar people. This year Yehovah Himself showed us through all the FIRSTFRUITS of the land of Israel that we were in sync with Him, and He comforted us.

We now watch for rain in Israel in this, the 8th month, which most others consider their 7th month. So brethren, please help others to see these things in love and help them to understand. Do not barge into their feast celebrations screaming they are wrong. But in love and patience show them when the time is right why you kept the Feasts a month before them. You did not keep them early. You kept them right on time. But they are a month late.

The Feast of Sukkot 2021

Isaiah 60:9 Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of Jehovah your God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because He has glorified you.

I believe this next picture is from Pastor Raphael’s group also in Davou Mindanao.


The Blood Moons

During the past couple of weeks, there is a great deal we could write to you about. The USA pull-out of Afghanistan, the flash flood that swept through central Tenessee, Hurricane Ida striking Louisianna or about the flash flood that just struck Pennsylvania and New York City, from the remnant of Ida.

What I want to talk about with you are the Blood Moons. I have during this 7th month seen blood moons almost every single day I looked for the moon. Yes every day.

On the first day of the 7th month, I could not see the moon due to clouds. but on the next day, I could and it was a dark red-orange colour and I thought that was beautiful and strange for it to be that colour as I looked to the west. I thought the moon would be changed to red as the light from the sun was refracted and only the red colour got through to shine on the moon and I also thought that only happened during a lunar eclipse.

We have written a book about the Blood Moons back in 2014, which is only available as an e-book and we did a video teaching on it as well which you can watch at this link here.

The e-book has much more information than the video does so I do hope you get and study it.

My place faces the east so I did not pay any more attention to the moon after sunset as it was in the west. But then I began to notice that the moon was Blood Red three days before Sukkot.

I am just using my iPhone so the pictures are not the best.

I then noticed the 3 more moons leading up to what is the Blue Moon that they were blood moons each night. I began to post these on FaceBook. And Pauline also reported a very dark yellow moon from Australia.


With Sukkot now upon us, I saw my 4th Blood Moon in 5 days. One day I was not able to see it due to clouds. And since the start of Sukkot, I have seen a blood-coloured moon every night except for one due to clouds. We have the new moon day in 4 days’ time. And I will try to get up to witness the moon rise in its final stages before it reaches conjunction.

What does all of this mean?

Until now I thought the blood moons only referred to lunar eclipses as explained by Mark Biltz who first discovered the tetrads he was referring to. We go far beyond that in our video and book taking you all the way back to Adam. And we show you the blood moons before the events take place unlike Mr. Biltz and Pastor John Hagee who show you blood moons after the events because they are using the Hillel Calendar and not the Barley and Crescent moon calendar.

A blood moon comes from Jewish Mythology and many times throughout their history they saw blood moons before war struck them. A dark moon is not the conjunction moon but the dark yellow moon of a near lunar eclipse. And they became know as coming before famines did. And that is how the myth began to grow.

With so many blood-coloured moons people began to doubt my reports saying it was due to all the fires and smoke coming from the many wildfires in the west. And yet the skies here were crystal clear.

Then the idiots began to attack me. So I am again removing Tares and blocking them.

This does not change what I am seeing and taking pictures of. They are not the best pictures but they are what I have been seeing. So then I went and read Joel to see if I had missed anything. And indeed I had.

It is amazing to me how we all, myself included can start to believe a theology because someone else states it first.

Your homework it to now read all of Joel and then stop and go and read it all a second time. It is just a short three chapters.

Yehovah is talking about two things in this first section of Joel. The locust is an army and the land is all dried up from a drought.

Joe 1:1  The Word of Jehovah that came to Joel, the son of Pethuel.

An Invasion of Locusts

Joe 1:2  Hear this, you old men, and give ear, all dwellers of the land. Has this been in your days or even in the days of your fathers?

Joe 1:3  Tell your sons of it, and let your sons tell their sons, and their sons another generation.

Joe 1:4  That which the creeping locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten. And that which the swarming locust has left, the locust larvae has eaten. And that which the locust larvae has left, the stripping locust has eaten.

Joe 1:5  Awake, drunkards, and weep; and howl, all drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth.

Joe 1:6  For a nation has come up on My land, strong and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he has the jaw teeth of a lioness.

Joe 1:7  He has laid My vine waste and splintered My fig tree. He has stripped it and cast it away; its branches grow white.

Joe 1:8  Weep like a virgin clothed with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

Joe 1:9  The food offering and the drink offering are cut off from the house of Jehovah; the priests, Jehovah’s ministers, mourn.

Joe 1:10  The field is wasted; the land mourns, for the grain is wasted. The new wine is dried up; the oil tree droops.

Joe 1:11  Be ashamed, husbandmen; howl, vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field has perished.

Joe 1:12  The vine is dried up, and the fig tree droops, the pomegranate and the palm tree, and the apple tree; all the trees of the field are dried up, because joy has dried up from the sons of men.

As you read Joel keep this 120th as well as the 70th Jubilee cycle in front of you. This chart also has the blood moons of 2014, 2015 and 2016. As well as the one in 2020 and the ones expected in 2024-2026 and 2031 and 2032. There are also some to come in 2023 having just checked once again.

Do not neglect the severe drought out west this year and last and the year before.

You are called to repent. But few of you will.

A Call to Repentance

Joe 1:13  Gird up and lament, priests; howl, ministers of the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, ministers of my God. For the food offering and the drink offering are held back from the house of your God.

Joe 1:14  Set apart a fast; call a solemn gathering; gather the elders and all the people of the land into the house of Jehovah your God, and cry to the Lord,

Joe 1:15  Alas for the day! For the day of Jehovah is at hand, and it shall come as a ruin from the Almighty.

Joe 1:16  Is not the food cut off before our eyes, and joy and gladness from the house of our God?

Joe 1:17  The seed is rotten under their clods; the storage bins are laid waste; the barns are broken down, for the grain has dried up.

Joe 1:18  How the beasts groan! The herds of cattle are troubled because they have no pasture. Yes, the flocks of sheep are destroyed.

Joe 1:19  O Jehovah, to You will I cry; for the fire has burned up the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame has burned all the trees of the field.

Joe 1:20  The beasts of the field also cry to You; for the rivers of water are dried up, and the fire has burned up the pastures of the wilderness.

This section confirms the severity of the drought and calls for us to repent.

We have been asking out loud and in our prayers for understanding about the year 2024. We shared with you the teaching about the 10 Days of Awe and how the 7 Trumpets, plagues, seals and bowls seemed to fill in those days between each of the holy days/years of 2024, 2030 and 2033.

We believe the Day of the Lord is the Feast of Trumpets. The Feast of Trumpets is represented on our chart above by the year 2024.

The Day of the Lord

Joe 2:1  Blow a ram’s horn in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble. For the day of Jehovah comes, for it is near at hand;

Joe 2:2  a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread on the mountains; a great people and a strong people; there has not been ever the like, nor shall there ever be again, even to the years of many generations.

Joe 2:3  A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns. The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness. Yes, and nothing shall escape them.

Joe 2:4  As the appearance of horses is its appearance; and as war horses, so they run.

Joe 2:5  They shall leap like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, like a strong people set in battle order.

Joe 2:6  Before their face the people shall be much pained; all faces shall gather blackness.

Joe 2:7  They shall run like mighty ones. They shall climb the wall like men of war, and they shall march each one on his way, and they shall not break their ranks.

Joe 2:8  And each one shall not press his brother; they each go in his paths. And if they fall behind their weapons, they shall not be cut off.

Joe 2:9  They shall rush on the city; they shall run on the wall; they shall climb up on the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

Joe 2:10  The earth shall tremble before them; the heavens shall shake. The sun and the moon shall grow dark, and the stars shall gather in their light.

Joe 2:11  And Jehovah shall utter His voice before His army; for His camp is very great; for strong is He who does His Word. For the day of Jehovah is great and very terrible; and who can stand it?

Blowing the Rams horn and a thief in the night are both references to the Feast of Trumpets.

Return to the Lord

Joe 2:12  Yet even now, says Jehovah, turn to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning.

Joe 2:13  Yes, tear your heart and not your robes, and turn to Jehovah your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He pities because of the evil.

Joe 2:14  Who knows if He will turn and have pity and leave a blessing behind Him, a food offering and a drink offering to Jehovah your God?

Joe 2:15  Blow a trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn gathering.

Joe 2:16  Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, gather the elders, gather the children and those who suck the breasts. Let the bridegroom go forth out of his chamber, and the bride out of her room.

Joe 2:17  Let the priests, the ministers of Jehovah, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Have pity on Your people, O Jehovah, and give not Your inheritance to shame, for a proverb among those of the nations. Why should they say among the people, Where is their God?

Here again, is the Feast of Trumpets followed by the Day of Atonement and then Sukkot.

The Lord Had Pity

Joe 2:18  Then Jehovah will be jealous for His land and pity His people.

Joe 2:19  Yes, Jehovah will answer and say to His people, Behold, I will send you grain, and wine, and oil, and you shall be satisfied with it. And I will no more make you a curse among the nations.

Joe 2:20  But I will remove the northern army far from you, and will drive him into a barren and deserted land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his rear toward the western sea. And his stench shall come up, and his ill odor shall come up, because he was doing great things.

Joe 2:21  Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice. For Jehovah will do great things.

Joe 2:22  Do not be afraid, beasts of the field; for the pastures of the wilderness grow green; for the tree bears its fruit, and the fig tree and the vine yield their strength.

Joe 2:23  Be glad then, sons of Zion, and rejoice in Jehovah your God. For He has given you the former rain according to righteousness, and He will cause the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain in the first month.

Joe 2:24  And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.

Joe 2:25  And I will restore to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten, the locust larvae, and the stripping locust, and the cutting locust, My great army which I sent among you.

Joe 2:26  And you shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of Jehovah your God, who has dealt with you wonderfully; and My people shall never be ashamed.

Joe 2:27  And you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am Jehovah your God, and no one else; and My people shall never be ashamed.


The Lord Will Pour Out His Spirit

Joe 2:28  And it shall be afterward, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams; your young men shall see visions.

Joe 2:29  And also I will pour out My Spirit on the slaves and on the slave women in those days.

Joe 2:30  And I will show wonders in the heavens, and in the earth, blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

Verse 30 is what I was considering as I watched the heavens in amazement at the moon being consistently red every time I looked up at it. And on the news has been this massive flooding come so quickly last week in Tennessee and this week in New York City. We have wildfires out west that have exceeded all previous records and the smoke from those wildfires goes up in pillars.

Joe 2:31  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of Jehovah.

This next picture is from Oregon on Sept 9, 2020, at noon. You can see many other pictures at the link. You will notice this does not say anything about lunar eclipses. It does not say only on a full moon nor just at Sukkot or Passover. What the prophet Joel does say is that the moon will be turned into blood. And the verse before says that pillars of smoke precede those blood moons.

And this 7th month I am witness to the moon being turned into blood on every day I was able to see it and look for it.

Joe 2:32  And it shall be, whoever shall call on the name of Jehovah shall be saved; for salvation shall be in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, as Jehovah has said, and in the remnant whom Jehovah shall call.

You are about to read about the valley of judgment which is the Kidron Valley next to the City of David.

The Lord Judges the Nations

Joe 3:1  For, behold, in those days and in that time, when I will bring again the exiles of Judah and Jerusalem,

Joe 3:2  I will also gather all nations and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will fight with them there for My people and for My inheritance Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and divided My land.

Joe 3:3  And they have cast lots for My people, and have given a boy for a prostitute, and sold a girl for wine, so that they might drink.

Joe 3:4  Yea, and what have you to do with Me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the borders of Philistia? Will you give Me a reward? And if you reward Me, swiftly and speedily I will turn your reward on your own head,

Joe 3:5  because you have taken My silver and My gold, and have carried My good treasures into your temples.

Joe 3:6  You have also sold the sons of Judah and the sons of Jerusalem to the sons of the Greeks, that you might remove them far from their border.

Joe 3:7  Behold, I am raising them out of the place where you have sold them, and will turn your reward on your own head.

Joe 3:8  And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the sons of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off; for Jehovah has spoken it.

Joe 3:9  Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up.

Joe 3:10  Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, I amstrong.

Joe 3:11  Gather yourselves and come, all you nations, and gather yourselves together all around; cause Your mighty ones to come down there, O Jehovah.

Joe 3:12  Let the nations be awakened and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the nations all around.

Joe 3:13  Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, come down; for the press is full; the vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.

Joe 3:14  Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of Jehovah is near in the valley of decision!

Joe 3:15  The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall gather in their light.

Joe 3:16  Jehovah shall also roar out of Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem. And the heavens and the earth shall shake. But Jehovah will be the hope of His people and the strength of the sons of Israel.

The Glorious Future of Judah

Joe 3:17  So you shall know that I am Jehovah your God dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. And Jerusalem shall be a holy thing, and no aliens shall pass through her any more.

Joe 3:18  And it shall be, in that day the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters; and a fountain shall come forth from the house of Jehovah, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

Joe 3:19  Egypt shall be a ruin, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, from violence done to the sons of Judah, whose innocent blood they poured out in their land.

Joe 3:20  But Judah will dwell forever, and Jerusalem to generation and generation.

Joe 3:21  And I will cleanse their blood which I did not cleanse; and Jehovah is dwelling in Zion.

2024 is just a few years away. What are you spending all your time on? Are you promoting Yehovah and His Torah and His Jubilee Cycles? Are you bringing more people to the website?

We have shown you the Jubilee Cycles. We have shown you the 70 weeks of Daniel and exactly where we are in this 6th millennial day. We have shown you when the 7th Millennium of rest begins. We have shown you how the curses of Lev 26 line up with this 120th Jubilee Cycle. Recently we explained to you about the 10 Days of Awe and the 7 curses of Revelation. We have shown you how the blood moons were there on the High Holy Days before Adam died and many of the other patriarchs. We have walked you through the complexities of the calendars and how to prove which one is the proper one. We have explained the Holy Days to you in detail and this year how the first fruits lined up with those Holy Days.

We have shown you many things over the past 16 years here at So I was just wondering why you do not share them with others. We have Newsletters, videos and books that you can use to help teach those in your circles.

In the Philippines, I do see them teaching and sharing the many things they learn here. And I understand why Yehovah says in Isaiah 60 that the coastlands wait for His Torah. How they yearn for Him.



  1. Mike Hogan

    Hello Joseph. Those videos of the Philippinos celebrating Sukkot and the 8th day were great! To see all those happy faces and truly a spirit of rejoicing was wonderful. If only our fellowship could muster up the same enthusiasm. But who knows, maybe this year. We are on the Hillel calendar but hopefully for the last time. I talked to our group about going by the sighted moon starting in Spring 2022, most all are receptive to that. Anyway, thanks for all the time, effort and heart you have put in brining Torah to the people of the Philippines. Many lives have been touched as a result. Be blessed.

    • Joseph F Dumond

      Shabbat Shalom Mike, I am pleased to hear you are going to weigh all the facts this coming year to determine when the Holy Days are. Let me suggest you go to our library and click on the archives section and then on each of the calendar issues and begin to study each one now and not wait until the week before the barley is declared Aviv. You and the brethren need to know why you are doing what you are going to do. You and they must each judge the various reports from all the witnesses in the land and then make a judgment. But if you do not know the various aspects to the law and the calendar then many will not be able to judge and will once again rely on what others say.

  2. Michelle

    But there have been no blood Moons anywhere else in the world, except once in Israel?

    • Joseph F Dumond

      Others did see the blood moon in Western Canada and the USA and Australia. But it seems only I have been looking every night and seeing what i have found.

      • Jake Harmina

        Hello Brother Joe and all.
        I hope everyone is having a great Sabbath! I just want to add that I saw a blood moon on Aug 20th from Ontario, Canada. I do believe they are a warning to the nation of Israel, spiritual Israelites too.
        May our Father Yahweh protect us all in these concerning times.

  3. Ezra Ruduban

    The end is nigh! Brother Joe is one of the Two Witnesses and will be martyred for Yehovah’s sake! Your corpse will be seen worldwide! But take heart Brother Jow for you will be resurrected on the Last Day and be given all power and authority in Yehovah’s Kingdom!! Prsise Yehovah!!!!@

    • Joseph F Dumond

      Shabbat Shalom Ezra, I do not make any claims to be one of the Two Witnesses. Nor do I look forward to being martyred. But when they do come will we recognize them and help them, or will we be arguing with them and defending our current positions?

    • Julia Sempio

      Re the blood moon, I saw them a couple of times. On the night my friend saw what appeared as an “egg” shaped moon I went to look, but what I saw made chills run through my body.

      Instead of seeing the moon I saw two clouds. The larger cloud covered the moon, a smaller cloud was beneath it.

      First the smaller cloud…it was shaped like a sideways W, not quite a Sheen but close enough.

      The larger cloud covering the moon was shaped like a “rocket or missile”. Both of these images was pointed directly to the EAST, then the word WAR came to mind.

      This was a few days after the renewed moon. Since then I’ve heard 3 different spiritual leaders speaking of war. Now we have Iran on the Israeli borders.

      May we all be prepared spiritually for whatever may come.

      Julia S.

    Thank you for this letter. Hope every one enjoyed Sukkot. My testimony on finding the Barley/Sighted Moon calendar happened as I prayed sincerely for wisdom to Yehovah for about one month and then suddenly I saw the book online about the Sabbath years and the 2300 days of hell. It did not take long to read’em and weep.

    Interesting comparing that time span to when I first came out of the Sunday churches. That process was much longer, months probably 6 to 8 months of knowing I seriously needed to hear from Yehovah as to what He will is for my life because I was not getting sound answers from the local churches, just motivational speeches.

    I was destined for this. In my heart, I desired to have His peace guiding my life, daily and yearly, I had a void until He filled. God knows, I try to share it with others. Its out of my hands and my current struggle is to believe in the sovereignty of Yehovah over all the bad news.

    Hello to you all.

    thankyou again for all the work you and the others put in to teach us what Yehovah wants us to know. I had the Feast at home this year in “lock down” . Could not go any where. Its been cold and wet but could celebrate with my God at home. Looking forward to the resurrection so as to meet all of you, and to get to know all my brothers and sisters. Love you all. Phyllis Mannering.

    Shabbat Shalom everyone
    I live in eastern Canada and I can witness I seen a partial blood moon or maybe even famine/dark moon over Sukkot while the moon was full. Although it only stayed dark as it was rising for a short time just as Sukkot started and I am even further from the fires than Joseph is so he was not the only one seeing them over Sukkot. There was another night the moon had a crazy look to it but it brightened up pretty fast so wasn’t sure what I was looking at but was beautifully bright afterward so was obvious it was something
    Shalom from NS Canada

    Hi Joseph
    We have kept the Holy days at the same time as you this year. However, one of my sons and his family believe that the barley would not have been ready within walking distance of the temple in Jerusalem. This is because the fields in the higher altitude around Jerusalem are known to ripen later than in other parts of the country where the barley is first found. If it was not ready within walking distance of the temple site, how could the priests/nation celebrate the feast? What can I say that will help them?

    • Joseph

      Ask your sons if their fields were ripening before Jerusalems, then what would they do? If the fields they own were to reseed before the fields in Jerusalem they would lose their entire crop. What would they do? This year the fields that were first had reseeded before those used by the other groups. So who offered first fruits to Yehovah? Those who waited were offering second crops or leftovers to the Creator of the Universe.

      This year the barley was ripe in the Galilee area. That is 126 KM from Jerusalem. Yesterday I walked 10 KM in an hour and a half. So I could have walked from Galilee to Jerusalem in about 16 hours at my old man’s pace. I also know people who used to walk from the Galilee to keep the Feasts. And then walk back. They concur with what I am saying.
      If you were to walk from Gaza to Jerusalem it is about 76 KM which is the other area known to have barley early.
