The 13th Month

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 to the Royal Family of Yehovah,

They Are Trying To Impeach Me On MEWE

I want to advise you all that on MEWE Jan has begun impeachment articles against me. She has started a trial on me and the things I am teaching here. I would like to urge you all to go and join the chat sessions and learn what she is teaching everyone there.

Jan was looking for something to do and I did not know how to employ her in this work to exploit her talents and promote this work. We had just started MEWE due to the things that were happening to us on Facebook. Pauline was running our Facebook page. It was eventually shut down by the word police for us promoting President Trump.

Jan took on the MEWE challenge, although it started small and slow and now she is teaching people and pasters around the world about each of the many aspects of the Jubilee Cycles. And the numbers are growing. She does this one on one so that those who do not understand can ask and then learn. Jan has done and is doing a remarkable job and I am very proud of what she has accomplished. Jan has done this on top of sorting out all of our articles into topics so you can find everything we wrote about each topic in one place. She has also helped and contributed to the Scripture Lessons for the Kingdom Volume one. A second volume is in the works and is expected to be completed by Passover this year by our mystery writer who want to remain anonymous.

But now Jan has put me on trial and is seeking to impeach me. The trial is still in session and is about a week old. If you have doubts or questions about many of the aspects of the Calendar or the Jubilee Cycles and why the focus on the Philippines and East Africa, then Jan can help you. She also has some good friends who can also respond to your questions and help you to understand in a language that makes sense to you.

I check in every once in a while to see if she has found me guilty yet, but the trial is still ongoing. Sign up and join in the conversation.

God will provide. Go and be blessed

Most people contribute to a pension plan for most of their working careers. Then when they retire they can begin to collect the money that is built up in that fund. Those who do not contribute to a pension fund of some sort have nothing to pay themselves in their old age when they cannot work. They then become a burden on their children or on the Government. It is a sad end to a long and productive life. They just did not plan or it just did not work out in their plans.

Pro 6:6  Go to the ant, sluggard; consider her ways and be wise;

Pro 6:7  who, having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

Pro 6:8  provides her food in the summer and gathers her food in the harvest.

Pro 6:9  How long will you sleep, O sluggard? When will you arise out of your sleep?

Pro 6:10  A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to lie down;

Pro 6:11  so shall your poverty come as one who travels, and your need like an armed man.

In 2010, I was coming up from the Gihon Spring where we had just mikvehed. Michael Rood and a group had gathered to eat lunch at some tables in the square and Michael had asked me to join them so we could talk. He was watching me for a while as the conversation went around. During this time a young Orthodox Jewish man came up and I had not even noticed him. He was wearing a suit but you could tell he was sleeping in it on the street. It was dirty and a bit ragged. He was asking for money from people and when he got to this one lady, he stuck his hand out and she took his hand and shook it and then said this to him loud enough for everyone to hear it.

Silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. Be blessed in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

She said this to this Jewish young man. The man then turned and began to walk away. This lady looked at her friends giggling with the smugness of a mindless Christian thinking they had just witnessed to some Jew, and she and her friends laughed at her quick thinking. I was pissed at seeing this self-righteous b@#$ mock this young man. I do not think Michael saw what took place as someone was talking to him on the side. This lady had food and drinks in front of her, as did the others on the table, and they could not find any spare change to give this young man. Passover was to begin soon. And they only wanted to mock him and not help him.

Here is the verse she butchered to have her fun.

Act 3:1  And on the same day Peter and John went up into the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.
Act 3:2  And a certain man, who was lame from his mother’s womb, was being carried. And they laid him daily at that temple gate which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered into the temple.
Act 3:3  Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms.
Act 3:4  And fastening his eyes on him, Peter with John said, Look on us!
Act 3:5  And he paid heed to them, expecting to receive something from them.
Act 3:6  But Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!
Act 3:7  And taking him by the right hand, he lifted him up. And immediately his feet and ankle-bones received strength.
Act 3:8  And leaping up, he stood and walked and entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising God.
Act 3:9  And all the people saw him walking and praising God.

She had not healed the man. She was only mocking him. She insulted his faith in front of all of us that were there. And nobody did anything about it.

I got up from my table and went after the man. He walked very fast down the road to the Western Wall. I had to run to catch up with him, by the time he got to where the Lions are as you begin to go down the stairs to the Kotel. I stopped him and apologized to him for the woman. I then gave him what I had with me at that time, maybe 40 Shekels. Not a lot. Perhaps he prayed for me at the wall that day.

When I got back to the group this lady had left. I was still mad at what she had done. Then Michael saw me come back and decided it was time to sit with me and talk.

I have never forgotten the ignorance of this lady who was part of that group. And it still angers me today. Although she was pretty looking she was as ugly to me as anyone has ever been.

Every time I sit down here to ask you, my Brethren for help with this work, it is inevitable that some stupid person will write to me and say God will provide, go and be blessed. After I get a few like this I get mad. Because I suspect these people think I am going to go and say to James, Aike or Telesphore, ‘Go and be blessed God will provide.’

We all have read the part where Moses asks the Israelites to help build the Tabernacle.

Exo 35:4  And Moses spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel saying, This is the thing which Jehovah commanded. He said,
Exo 35:5  Take from among you an offering to Jehovah. Whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of Jehovah: gold, and silver, and bronze,
Exo 35:6  and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and bleached linen, and goats’ hair,
Exo 35:7  and rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, and acacia-wood,
Exo 35:8  and oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet incense,
Exo 35:9  and onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod and for the breast-pocket.
Exo 35:10  And every wise-hearted one among you shall come and make all that Jehovah has commanded:
Exo 35:11  the tabernacle, its tent, its covering, its clasps, and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets.
Exo 35:12  And make the ark and the staves of it, the mercy-seat, and the veil of the covering,
Exo 35:13  the table, and its staves, and all its vessels, and showbread,
Exo 35:14  also the lampstand for the light, and its vessels, and its lamp, with the oil for the light,
Exo 35:15  and the incense altar, and its staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the hanging of the door at the entering in of the tabernacle.
Exo 35:16  And make the altar of burnt offering, with its bronze grating, its staves, and all its vessels, the laver and its base,
Exo 35:17  the hangings of the court, its pillars and their sockets, and the hanging, for the door of the court,
Exo 35:18  the pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords,
Exo 35:19  the woven garments to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office.
Exo 35:20  And all the congregation of the sons of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.
Exo 35:21  And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom His spirit made willing. They brought Jehovah’s offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for all His
service, and for the holy garments.
Exo 35:22  And the men came in together with the women, as many as were willing-hearted, bringing bracelets and earrings, and rings and ornaments, all jewels of gold. And everyone who offered waved a wave offering of gold to Jehovah.
Exo 35:23  And everyone with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and bleached linen, and goats’ hair, and red skins of rams, and badgers’ skins, brought them.
Exo 35:24  Everyone lifting up an offering of silver and bronze brought Jehovah’s offering. And everyone with whom was found acacia-wood for any work of the service, brought it.
Exo 35:25  And every wise-hearted woman spun with her hands. And they brought spun yarn, blue, and purple, scarlet, and bleached linen.
Exo 35:26  And all the women whose hearts were lifted up in wisdom spun goats’ hair.
Exo 35:27  And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod and for the breast-pocket.
Exo 35:28  And they brought spice and oil, for the light and for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense.
Exo 35:29  The sons of Israel brought a willing offering to Jehovah, every man and woman whose heart made them willing to bring for all kinds of work which Jehovah had commanded to be made by the hand of Moses.

Then shortly thereafter we read how Moses had to stop the people form bringing any more.

Exo 36:1  And Bezaleel and Aholiab shall work with everyone wise of heart to whom Jehovah has given wisdom and intelligence, to know how to do every work of the service of the sanctuary, concerning all which Jehovah had commanded.
Exo 36:2  And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise-hearted man in whose heart Jehovah had put wisdom, even everyone whose heart stirred him up to come, to do the work.
Exo 36:3  And they received all the offerings from Moses, the offering which the sons of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it. And they still brought to him free offerings every morning.
Exo 36:4  And all the wise men who worked all the work of the sanctuary came, every man from his work which they made.
Exo 36:5  And they spoke to Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which Jehovah commanded to make.
Exo 36:6  And Moses commanded, and they caused it to be known throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. And the people were kept from bringing.
Exo 36:7  For the stuff which they had was enough for all the work to make it, and too much.

James and I joke that it sure would be nice to have this problem just once.

James has been telling me the web site is crashing and has been getting worse since July last year. Pauline and her husband Chris have been holding it together with bubble gum and twine. James has been McGyver-ing it with duct tape and wire. Over the past few weeks, many of you have written to let me know that certain pages were not loading up and other times you were getting error messages. I would forward those notes to James but he was fighting his depression battle so Pauline and Chris would try and fix the problem.

With each upgrade that is done to the site, problems arise with plugins that we need to run the site. The plugins are not upgraded at the same time as other upgrades. James then tries to fix those and the other problems that pop up as a result.

We have the notice still on the site that this site would be taken down if nothing happened come Shavuot 2020. And that remains there still. With all that is happening around the world, and many of you see it, many of you understand the things that are going on and you can point to the actual scriptures now and say there it is, right there. Because you can now do this, you can also see what is coming next. Most of you have learned these things at You have not learned them at other ministries or you would be following them. No, you learned it here.

Even those who strongly disagree with me keep coming back to learn what these world events mean so they can interpret them to their own liking. Sometimes they should just remain silent.

Pro 17:27  He who has knowledge uses few words; a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.
Pro 17:28  Even a fool, when he is silent, is counted wise, and he who shuts his lips is counted as a man of understanding.

Last fall, we took out an ad campaign with the NRB, the National Religious Broadcasters of America. They are hosting their large convention this month and some of the very people we have been trying to reach out to are going to be there. Dr. James Dobson and Mike Huckabee. Just so you know Dr. James Dobson’s producers acknowledged they are looking at the books I sent them about The 2300 Days of Hell and the curses in the world right now. But they have not approved me to be on the show.

I did follow up our initial letter with a couple of phone calls and then this week received this very nice rejection letter.

February 3, 2020

Dear Mr. Dumond:

Thank you for contacting the James Dobson Family Institute again.  We appreciate your interest in our ministry.

Understanding that you desire to have your book considered as the subject of an interview, we thought it might be helpful to relay a bit of additional information.  As you may be aware, there are a number of factors that go into identifying prospective content, including topic and timing (even the program-airing calendar is subject to change).  The review process can take a while in light of the day-to-day activities requiring the Broadcast team members’ attention.  In addition, even when the staff is interested in highlighting a particular book (and, we won’t know for some time whether or not that will be the case in this instance), the “when” of it can remain a question for what may feel like an extended period of time.  Consequently, the best suggestion we can offer those who have submitted their material for consideration is to leave the ball in their court, so to speak; when they determine authors’ works provide a good match for our needs and decide to proceed, they will follow up with them at that point.

Thank you for checking in with us.  We’re sorry that we are unable to be of more concrete help just now.  If we can assist you in any other way, please let us know.  Abundant blessings to you!


David Harleyson

Office of the President

Also last fall we built this large banner to put on display at this convention. We were later turned down from being able to display there. But we kept the ad campaign going in the hopes it will generate some results. Our results are topping all the other campaigns that the Multimedia manager has at this site. So this is good. Also this fall we sponsored James’s trip to Burundi and that was at the same time as we built this banner and we also sent funds to Telesphore at this same time. It all broke the piggy bank for some time as I paid for it all up front myself and then recovered the costs from the donations and books sales that came in over the next 4 or 5 months.

I must also tell you that Telesphore has fled Burundi with his family and is now in Canada. The President is trying to become the King of Burundi in order to hold on to power. It is said that a new president will take over with the elections in May. Those elections were supposed to happen last fall which was why James rushed to get there before the riots began. Edward our interpreter has also fled for Kenya. Severin has recovered from his surgery and although he is from Zambia has remained in Burundi. So this country is descending into chaos. Did I mention that if they kill the current president they also tend to do the same to those close to him? For this reason Telesphore has removed his family.

This fall along with all of the above we also sponsored two or three mission trips that Aike conducted in Mindinao of the Philippines. And each of these has been a great success.

Rev 3:7  And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts; and shuts and no one opens, says these things:
Rev 3:8  I know your works. Behold, I have given before you an open door, and no one can shut it. For you have a little strength and have kept My Word and have not denied My name.

Over the past three weeks I have been negotiating with our Multimedia ad people about running another ad campaign and targeting some large Christian groups. We got the ad for a reduced price and then James wrote me. This same Multimedia company also has a deal where we can put our ads in front of every single person who comes to the web site for 30 days after they come to our site. We get about 500 to 1,000 to our web site each day. More when the world gets crazy, as people want to know what is going on, so they come to to learn. With this ad I could put our books and teachings in front of these new people for 30 days after they first come to the site.

All of this advertising was to cost $9,500 US but we were able to get it reduced to $7,000 and extended it from 6 months to a year. And we can rotate our ads or add new ones. I was also able to get this stretched out so that it was paid over 4 months time instead of all up front.

Then James writes me at the same time as I closed this deal, and tells me the site is done. It will cost the following for this company to rebuild it.

Hourly rate: $175.00

Basic Site (about 10 pages) : $7,000.00 and we have about 2,000 pages.

Add eCommerce and Donation page: 3 – $5,000 or more
To extract all our content and remove all unnecessary code : $5,000 (approx. based on report and amount of work)
To add promotional pages for books $???

So do I close down the site now? 3 months 3 weeks and 3 days before Shavuot! If I am wrong as some of you believe then this is a sure why not. They want me off the internet anyway. Does it make sense to rebuild the site and spend this amount of money only to shut it down at Shavuot? Not at all. Not if I am wrong.

But what if I am right? I, like many of you, believe I may actually be very right. No one else is saying what we are saying nor are they accurately telling people when these things are to happen. And as you read in last weeks Newsletter, there is tons going on in the world right now. Who can keep up?

On the presumption that we are correct in our understanding Aike, I and Pauline and a number of others have been trying to plan how we are to continue doing this work after Shavuot 2020 from the Philippines. To be a licensed Ministry in the Philippines we believe we need to become an accredited Foundation through whom many can sponsor our various activities. As we mentioned Aquaponics and Hydroponic farming. We have called it for now Yehovah’s Kibbutz. A place for people to come and get settled and begin to find their way in the Philippines for the next ten years. This foundation already has connections in the Government which we will need in order not to be evicted from the country once our visitor visa expires. Aike and I have been developing these connections since I first went to the Philippines and long before I even knew this was the place to go to, because it is one of the places Israel will be brought back from out of the captivity. We have taught this before many times now.

In order to set up this foundation we must have $20,000 US in the bank to start. This past year I have gotten close a couple of times and then things happen and we have had to spend those funds on the things as I have said above.

Brethren, I believe what I am saying about Shavuot 2020 to be true and accurate. In the same way as the shot that rang out around the world began the American revolution, something is about to happen on Shavuot 2020 that begins the process of the destruction of the USA. It does not happen all at once. But it does begin. Whether or not it takes one or two years before the USA falls is to be seen.

I have no intentions of going to hide and that is why I want to conduct this ad campaign for the next year. To try and rescue some more people the same way some of you were awakened to these truths. Think about it. How did you come to know these things? And if they will not come now then they will have some things to think about while they are in captivity. That is why I want to do this ad campaign.

In the Philippines again I am not hiding. I want to teach the entire country the Torah, the Holy Days and Sabbath and the Sabbatical years and help them to understand world events and their role in these end times. Aike already has plans to run me ragged on the radio and TV shows, once I get there.

The best way to teach them many things is to create a living working Tabernacle Replica in which many tourists could come and visit to help support us while we are there. It would train the Filipinos and be an awesome conversational piece while we are there. The cost of this I have not even considered. Pauline and I have been talking about this for a few months and we are now putting together a draft to present to the authorities in Manila in the hopes of finding a sponsor and possibly having this be a part of the new Pearl Island Developments.

As you all know almost all the other ministries out there have you subscribe to them and once you do, then you are privileged to access their information. We have not done this here at We have made all our teachings available and free online. All our videos have been free online. We have sold our books and we have sold DVD’s to those who want to have the video at home or so they can give them away. And we never ask for tithes as that is for the Levites.

We are also the only Ministry teaching the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. In Fact Jan, Joli and Judith and I are putting together another book mostly from our articles listing all the Known Sabbatical years so they are all in one place. We are the only ones doing this. No one else is. And as you all know you can only understand prophecy when you understand the Jubilee cycles. From the numbers I have presented to you we need (we, not me) a minimum of $50,000 US to pay for all of this in the next month or so.

Since we lost our Facebook page I have been sending out our teachings each week through my personal page on Facebook and Twitter and Linkedin. And we get about 500 people going to the site through these means. We have over 1,000 subscribers and we get about 50% of them who open the News Letter each week. Again this is better than the average for all ministries. I would that it was higher. So in all, we are getting about 1,000 hits on each News Letter. Then our web site gets between 400 and 1,000 hits per day. I also know that about 75% of our readership is over the age of 55 with a total of 50% over 65 years old and 20% are over 35 years old. That leaves about 5% in the 18-35 year old group.

This work seems to be held up by the majority of those on a fixed income. I can also tell you that the number who contribute to this work are a whole lot less than those who come to glean our information. We have very few people actively supporting this work. Let me share with you a survey on tithing. I am not asking for tithes. But I just want you all to see what is going on in the USA.

Giving is one of the most sensitive topics in churches today if not taught and communicated in an appropriate away. Some of the people in the congregation may not fully understand it and even fight about it, thus resulting in a Generosity Gap.

The Generosity Gap is a state where a community’s giving is unfocused and leads to a lack of consistent tithing and giving across the community.

And this could be alarming especially to churches who don’t have a solid foundation of financial support. How can churches continue to make an impact and difference in the world if the amount of funds received are limiting ministry potential? It’s really a continuous struggle for many churches.

Here are a few but very alarming statistics about church tithing that clearly defines the Generosity Gap:

Tithers make up only 10-25 percent of a normal congregation. (Christianity Today)

Only 5% tithe, and 80% of Americans only give 2% of their income. (Church Development)

Christians are giving at 2.5% of income; during the Great Depression it was 3.3%. (ChurchLeaders)

Only 3-5% of Americans who give to their local church do so through regular tithing. (HRF)

When surveyed, 17% of Americans state that they regularly tithe. (HRF)

For Christian families making less than $20k/yr, 8% of them gave at least 10% in tithing. (HRF)

For families making $75k+, the church tithing figure drops to just 1%. (HRF)

3 out of 4 people who don’t go to church make donations to nonprofit organizations. (HRF)

The average giving by adults who attend US Protestant churches is about $17 a week. (HRF)

37% of regular church attendees and Evangelicals don’t give money to church. (HRF)

17% of American families have reduced the amount that they give to their local church. (HRF)

7% of churchgoers have dropped regular giving by 20% or more. (HRF)

About 10 million tithers in the US donate $50 billion yearly to church & non-profits. (HRF)

77% of those who tithe give 11%–20% or more of their income, far more than the baseline of 10% (HRF)

7 out of 10 tithers do so based on their gross and not their net income. (HRF)

As a church leader, you already know the benefits of tithing and the promised blessings behind it. How then do we close this Generosity Gap?

Now let me get back to the pension plan. Those who invested in it get to have an income from it later. Those who did not contribute will not get to benefit from it later. We are trying to do a work here right now. We are trying to prepare for this work in the very near future in the Philippines. If you are not going to invest in this work now, even though you can see that we are the only ones teaching the Sabbatical and Jubilee years and how they reveal end time prophecy and you can also see how the nightly news is exactly what I have been saying it would be since 2005, then what are you going to invest in? No one else is telling you to go to the Philippines. We are. And if you get there and you need help, when I look on our list of those who helped us to do this work even in the slightest way, will I find your name on the pension plan, those who invested in it? Or will I say what some are going to be told by Yehshua, I don’t know who you are.

Or maybe I can say to you like some of you who write to me say, God will provide. Go your way and be blessed. Do you really want me to say that when you need help during the coming trials?

Brethren I need $50,000 in the next couple of months. Or the web site will fall apart and not work. Then what are you going to do when you need to find out what to do or what has happened. I do not want those who are already carrying this load to lift any more than what you already are. I do want those of you who have not helped us in the past to now start and to do so regularly each month.

I have already taken to the bank all the promises that many have given me. The bank manager just laughed at me. He said you can’t cash a promise or an “I wanted to but”.

Set up a regular monthly donation after Sabbath and keep it going for the foreseeable future. If you do not want to do Paypal, then send a check or money order, one for each of the next 12 months. My bank manager will take those and deposit them, but the promises he gives back to me. I am looking for 500 people to step up and give $100 for the next 12 months. I already know the names of those people who have been supporting this work over the years each and every month. I know their names and I pray over them. Will I be adding your name to that list?

Mat 25:14  For it is as if a man going abroad called his own servants and gave them his goods.
Mat 25:15  And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to each according to his ability. And he went abroad at once.
Mat 25:16  And going he who had received the five talents traded with them, and made another five talents.
Mat 25:17  And likewise he who had received two, he also gained another two.
Mat 25:18  But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the earth and hid his lord’s silver.
Mat 25:19  After a long time the lord of those servants came and took account with them.
Mat 25:20  And so he who had received five talents came and brought another five talents, saying, Lord, you delivered five talents to me. Behold, I have gained five talents above them.
Mat 25:21  His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.
Mat 25:22  He also who had received two talents came and said, Lord, you delivered two talents to me. Behold, I have gained two other talents above them.
Mat 25:23  His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.
Mat 25:24  And he who had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew that you were a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter.
Mat 25:25  And I was afraid and went and hid your talent in the earth. Lo, you have yours.
Mat 25:26  His lord answered and said to him, Evil and slothful servant! You knew that I reaped where I did not sow, and gathered where I did not scatter,
Mat 25:27  then you should have put my money to the exchangers, and coming I would have received my own with interest.
Mat 25:28  Therefore take the talent from him and give it to him who has ten talents.
Mat 25:29  For to everyone who has, more shall be given, and he will abound. But from him who has not, even that which he has shall be taken away from him.
Mat 25:30  And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Passover Could Very Well Be Early This Year

Although we are talking this week about adding a 13th month this year, I have just gotten a post from Becca Biderman.


Things just became slightly exciting. Leda, my friend in J’lem, just verified for me that the almonds trees are blooming in natural settings in a few locations outside of the city. And so I checked my tree again in the garden and found this, lots of tiny buds and one open bloom on the top. As I said, things change SO quickly this time of year. However, no anemonies have been seen yet. Another interesting year is knocking at the door.

The Boudin’s flocks in Be’eri forest are still big with pregnancies. But if we get 12 months this year those mamas will have babies in a few weeks

It looks like we have anemonies in Be’eri! WOOHOO, it’s gonna be close but it’s looking possible to have a 12 month year! We have to wait on the barley to be aviv, but anemonies and almond blooms USUALLY happen a month before the barley is aviv.

Just like the almonds, I had just checked and ‘pitom ?????’ (Hebrew for suddenly) anemonies are there.

I tried to get down there today and but had a low tire this morning I needed to see about, I’m heading there early, early in the morning to get back before Shabbat.

That we have almonds on one day and anemonies the next? SUPER exciting to see what’s going to happen.

Here are some more of those photos from Be’eri (which is in the northern Negev) with barley grass. You can see that the barley is still in a very immature stage of development. I’ll be checking a little further south as well. Specifically where the barley was found to be Aviv in 2018(?). The location of the photo I use for this group. The rain has been super sparse down in that area. If the barley going to be in a more advanced stage of development it will probably be down toward B’sor.

You can tell those poppies are just now starting to show up. When they get going they will look like a red carpet. This Jewish cowboy likes his hat, lol

Thank you Abba for providing us such good photos

Adar Bet Do We or Don’t We

Last year there was another huge controversy about the Barley being Aviv either at the beginning of the 1st month or whether it was to be aviv by the wave sheaf day. Many of our friends choose to have the barely reading by the end of the 12th month.

Then there are those of us who chose the latter. That is that the Barley has to be ripe by Wave Sheaf Day. It is my belief that the only reason we look for the barley to be Aviv is so that we can make the wave sheaf offering. Last year we had many report that the barley was indeed ripe on wave sheaf day last year. And this caused a split amongst those of us who go by the crescent moon to begin the month and it grieves all of us when this happens.

We have now begun the 12th month. Will the Barley be aviv in 6 weeks time from now? I have not heard any reports from the land at this time so I do not know for sure.

I am very confident that we will be adding a 13th month this year.

You will hear people talking about the Barley being in various stages. Look at the chart below. If the barley is in the clear liquid to doughy stage then you know that in about 21 days time the barley will be ripe enough to be roasted or caramelized.

Lev 2:1  And when anyone will offer a food offering to Jehovah, his offering shall be of fine flour. And he shall pour oil on it and put frankincense on it.
Lev 2:2  And he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons, the priests. And he shall take out of it his handful of flour and its oil, with all its frankincense. And the priest shall burn the memorial of it on the altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to Jehovah.
Lev 2:3  And the rest of the food offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’, most holy of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire.
Lev 2:4  And if you bring a sacrifice of a food offering baked in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil.
Lev 2:5  And if your offering is a food offering on the griddle, your offering shall be of fine flour unleavened, mixed with oil.
Lev 2:6  You shall break it in pieces and pour oil on it. It is a food offering.
Lev 2:7  And if your offering is a food offering in the frying pan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil.
Lev 2:8  And you shall bring the food offering that is made of these things to Jehovah. And when it is presented to the priest, he shall bring it to the altar.
Lev 2:9  And the priest shall take from the food offering a memorial of it, and shall burn it on the altar. It is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to Jehovah.
Lev 2:10  And that which is left of the food offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons: it is most holy of the offerings of Jehovah made by fire.
Lev 2:11  Any food offering which you shall bring to Jehovah shall not be made with leaven. For you shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in any offering of Jehovah made by fire.
Lev 2:12  As an offering of the firstfruits, you shall bring them to Jehovah. But they shall not be burned on the altar for a sweet savor.
Lev 2:13  And every sacrifice of your food offering shall you season with salt. And you shall not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your food offering. You shall offer salt with all your offerings.
Lev 2:14  And if you bring a food offering of your firstfruits to Jehovah, green ears roasted by fire, grains of a garden, you shall bring near for a food offering your firstfruits,
Lev 2:15  And you shall put oil on it and lay frankincense on it. It is a food offering.
Lev 2:16  And the priest shall burn it as incense with its memorial offering from its grains and from its oil, besides all its frankincense, a fire offering to Jehovah.



(Note what stage the barley is when you are told that it is in the boot. See the chart above.)

Take note of the condition of the food offering. It has to be made into fine flour. Or it can be roasted by fire. IF you harvest the barley when it is in the milk stage then when you roast it to get the water out there is no grain there from which you can make flour. If it is in the dough stage you can then roast it and carmelize it to make that your offering or have it become dry enough that you can make it into fine flour for an unleavened cake offering.

Whether or not the Barley is ripe at the end of the 12th month does not matter. You are not preparing the offering at the end of the 12th month. You prepare it after the Sabbath, after the sun has set on wave sheaf day in the night time. Depending on when Wave sheaf day falls you have between 14 day and 21 days for the barley to grow and mature from the end of the 12th month.

If the barley is not going to be ripe enough by wave sheaf day then Adar bet is declared. That is a second month of Adar or a 13th month so that the barley has 30 more days to develop.


The History of the 19 year Metonic Cycle

With Adar Bet being added this year many are again saying they cannot find it in the bible, so they are not going to keep an Adar Bet. Adar Bet means 13th month or 2nd Adar.

Where do we get this notion from? Well, we are about to explain to you where your bible shows you there is a 13th month. Before I do, I want to expose the Hypocrites who say they will not keep it because they cannot find it in the bible.

Some people, many people, speak before they ever turn their brains on. Just stop and think for just a second. If you do not add a 13th month every so often then you would be keeping Passover in various months each year. The same for Sukkot and all the Feasts. You may not believe me but then look at Ramadan. The Muslim calendar does not have an extra month added to it periodically and because of that Ramadan moves from year to year.

Every year, the world’s 1.7 billion Muslims—roughly a quarter of the global population—celebrate the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, a time for fasting and extra piety to cleanse the soul and come closer to God. Ramadan is a major global event, but just when, exactly, it begins is a matter of some debate.

The month-long holiday is observed principally in Muslim-majority countries in Africa and Asia but also by the believers around the world, including the roughly 3.3 million Muslims living in the U.S. During Ramadan, from sunrise to sunset, observant Muslims (with some exceptions, mostly health related) are forbidden to eat or drink (or smoke, or engage in sexual activity) to purify their thoughts and increase their devotion to God. One of the five pillars of Islam, Ramadan is the month during which Allah is said to have revealed the first verses of the Koran, the Islamic holy book, to the Prophet Muhammad. At sunset each day, the faithful are permitted to break their fast with a meal called iftar, thus ending what can be a grueling stretch of hours without food and water—especially when Ramadan falls during the long days of summer, as it does some years.

Ramadan comes at a different time every year because it is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, a date-keeping system based on lunar cycles, unlike the Gregorian calendar (the one used by most of the world, including the U.S.), which is based on the solar year. A new month begins with the appearance of the new moon, or the crescent moon, and ends with the next appearance of a new moon.

The month of Ramadan thus moves backwards about 10 days every year relative to the Gregorian calendar.

Abraham was the Father of Ismael and Isaac. Isaac was the Father of Esau as well as Jacob. They would have been taught about sighting the Crescent moon to begin the month. And down through the ages this way of beginning the month has continued on both sides of Abraham’s family.

It was Jacob’s Descendants who were told that when the Barley was Aviv that they were to begin the year.

Exo 12:2  This month shall be to you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year to you. 3  Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth of this month they shall take to them each man a lamb for a father’s house, a lamb for a house.

This is the month of Passover when the Barley was ripening. This month, I believe, the barley will not be ripe enough to make a wave offering so we will add a 13th month. Some did this last year.

Both the Descendants of Ishmael and Esau as well as Jacob have 354 day year when you count the days in those 12 months. And as it says above, this set them back 10 days I think it is 11 actually, each year. That is why Ramadan is never at the same time each year.

With the solar year being 365 days and the Lunar year being 354 there is 11 days difference each year. After about 3 years an extra 29 day month is added. This then makes up for those 3 times when you missed 10 or 11 days.

Now fast forward to the time after the temple is destroyed. The remaining Jews are now being hounded and persecuted for searching for barley and sighting the moon and setting signal fires to let those in the diaspora know when the Holy Days would be. It was during this time that Hillel formed the calculated calendar. But it was not uniformly used until Rambam instituted it at the end of the 12th century. Not everyone did the same thing for 900 years until Rambam instituted it for all Jews everywhere.

Read this and get some history on this subject before we go on.

Hillel II (Hillel the Nasi), also known simply as Hillel held the office of Nasi of the ancient Jewish Sanhedrin between 320 and 385 CE. He was the son and successor of Judah III. He was a Jewish communal and religious authority, circa 330 – 365 CE. He is sometimes confused with Hillel the Elder, as the Talmud sometimes simply uses the name “Hillel”.

In two instances his name is quoted in connection with important decisions in Jewish law: in one, Jose ben Abin expounds to him a law; in the other, Hillel cites a mishnah to establish a law (Yer. Ber. ii. 5a; Yer. Ter. i. 41a).

He is traditionally regarded as the creator of the modern fixed Hebrew calendar. It first appears in a responsum of R. Hai Gaon (early eleventh century) cited by R. Abraham bar Hiyya in his Sefer Ha’ibbur, written in 1123. The topic of that responsum is the 19-year cycle for leap-year intercalations, so the most that can be inferred from that attribution is that Hillel was responsible for the adoption of that cycle for the regulation of the distribution of leap-years.

Actually there is in fact much more that can be inferred from this citation. The citation explicitly refers to the year that this event happened, 670 of the Seleucid era, which corresponds to 358/9 CE. The Molad of Tishrei for that year 4119 would be Sat 23 hours and 233 parts. Under the Gregorian calendar this would be Sat, Sept 20, 0358 17:12. Rosh Hashanah would have begun Friday evening but not before, according to lunar science, a very bright Old Moon will rise Friday morning at 4:11 AM, an hour and 34 minutes before sunrise. The significance of this can be found in the Talmud Rosh Hashanah 25a.

Scholars who have studied the history of the Hebrew calendar are in general agreement (and there is much evidence for this in the Talmud itself and in other rabbinic sources) that in practice, the evolution of the calendar into its present form was a gradual process spanning several centuries from the first to about the eighth or ninth century CE. The champion of the view that the calendar was developed in the eighth or ninth century CE is Sacha Stern. This quote is from page 184-5 of his book Calendar and Community.

“Of far greater importance, however, is a much later document from the Cairo Geniza: a letter of a Babylonian exilarch – one of the main leaders of the Rabbanite community – with detailed calendrical instructions for the year 835/6 CE. The letter reveals that Passover (15 Nisan) in that year was due to occur on a Tuesday; whilst according to the present-day rabbinic calendar, it should have occurred on Thursday. According to the exilarch, the setting of Passover on Tuesday was dictated by a concern to avoid visibility of the new moon before the first day of the month. This concern does not exist in the present-day rabbinic calendar. Once discovered and published in 1922, the exilarch’s letter proved beyond doubt that almost five hundred years after R.Yose and ‘Hillel the Patriarch’, then fixed calendar in its present-day form had still not been instituted.”

Rabbinic tradition ascribes to him an enactment which proved of incalculable benefit to his coreligionists of his own and of subsequent generations. The Jewish calendar is lunisolar. That is, its months are synchronized with the phases of the moon, but its average year length approximates the mean length of a solar year. The purpose of the latter is to ensure that the festivals, all of which occur on fixed dates of the lunar months, are also observed each year in the seasons designated for them in the Bible. To ensure the former, occasional intercalations of a day in a month were required; to ensure the latter, occasional intercalations of an extra month in a year were required.

These intercalations were determined at meetings of a special committee of the Sanhedrin. But Constantius II, following the precedents of Hadrian, prohibited the holding of such meetings as well as the vending of articles for distinctly Jewish purposes.

The entire Jewish community outside the land of Israel depended on the calendar sanctioned by the Judean Sanhedrin; this was necessary for the unified observance of the Jewish holidays. However, danger threatened the participants in that sanction and the messengers who communicated their decisions to distant congregations. Temporarily, to relieve the foreign congregations, Huna ben Abin once advised Rava not to wait for the official intercalation: When you are convinced that the winter quarter will extend beyond the sixteenth day of Nisan declare the year a leap year, and do not hesitate (R. H. 21a). But as the religious persecutions continued, Hillel decided to provide an authorized calendar for all time to come, though by doing so he severed the ties which united the Jews of the diaspora to their mother country and to the patriarchate.

The emperor Julian the Apostate was gracious to Hillel, whom he honored on a number of occasions. In an autograph letter to him, Julian assured him of his friendship and promised to ameliorate further the condition of the Jews. Before setting out for the war with Persia, Julian addressed to the Jewish congregations a circular letter in which he informed them that he had “committed the Jewish tax-rolls to the flames,” and that, “desiring to show them still greater favors, he has advised his brother, the venerable patriarch “Julos”, to abolish what was called the ‘send-tax’”.[1]

It was because of Constantine and Hadrian that Hillel formed the calculated calendar. Before this time as you have just read they were using the visible crescent moon to begin the month as they always had and still did right up until Rambam instituted it. Even the Tomb Stones of Zoar prove this statement true.

The problem Hillel had was to know when to add the 13th month in the Hebrew calendar because they would soon not have anyone in the land to observe the barley and whether or not it was ripe enough for the wave offering. So he turned to the mathematical works of Meton a Greek Astronomer.

For astronomy and calendar studies, the Metonic cycle or Enneadecaeteris (from Ancient Greek: “nineteen years”) is a period of very close to 19 years that is remarkable for being nearly a common multiple of the solar year and the synodic (lunar) month. The Greek astronomer Meton of Athens (fifth century BC) observed that a period of 19 years is almost exactly equal to 235 synodic months and, rounded to full days, counts 6,940 days. The difference between the two periods (of 19 years and 235 synodic months) is only a few hours, depending on the definition of the year.

Considering a year to be 1/19 of this 6,940-day cycle gives a year length of 365 + 1/4 + 1/76 days (the unrounded cycle is much more accurate), which is slightly more than 12 synodic months. To keep a 12-month lunar year in pace with the solar year, an intercalary 13th month would have to be added on seven occasions during the nineteen-year period (235 = 19 × 12 + 7). When Meton introduced the cycle around 432 BC, it was already known by Babylonian astronomers.

A mechanical computation of the cycle is built into the Antikythera mechanism. (The Antikythera mechanism is an ancient analog computer designed to predict astronomical positions and eclipses for calendrical and astrological purposes, as well as the Olympiads, the cycles of the ancient Olympic Games.)

The cycle was used in the Babylonian calendar, ancient Chinese calendar systems (the ‘Rule Cycle’) and the medieval computus (i.e. the calculation of the date of Easter). It regulates the 19-year cycle of intercalary months of the Hebrew calendar.

At the time of Meton, axial precession had not yet been discovered, and he could not distinguish between sidereal years (currently: 365.256363 days) and tropical years (currently: 365.242190 days). Most calendars, like the commonly used Gregorian calendar, are based on the tropical year and maintain the seasons at the same calendar times each year. Nineteen tropical years are about two hours shorter than 235 synodic months. The Metonic cycle’s error is, therefore, one full day every 219 years, or 12.4 parts per million.

The Metonic cycle has an error in it? Would Yehovah’s system have such an error?

Roy Hoffman of the New Moon Society, which is now sighting the moon and gathering information for the Sanhedrin for the day when they will once again revert back to the sighting of the moon, states that;

For over a thousand years, the Hebrew calendar has been fixed by calculation. Today, the Hebrew calendar does not match that fixed by observing the Moon. Even thought the gap between the two calendars continues to increase, we do not have the authority to alter the calendar until a new Sanhedrin (religious high court) is re-established and is widely recognized.

Back to the Metonic article;

Traditionally, for the Babylonians and Hebrew lunisolar calendars, the years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, and 19 are the long (13-month) years of the Metonic cycle. This cycle, which can be used to predict eclipses, forms the basis of the Greek and Hebrew calendars, and is used for the computation of the date of Easter year.

The Babylonians applied the 19-year cycle since the late sixth century BC. As they measured the moon’s motion against the stars, the 235:19 relationship may originally have referred to sidereal years, instead of tropical years as it has been used for various calendars.

Now let me quote to you how Judaism justifies this metonic cycle and at the same time show you where we are in that metonic cycle.

The lunar month on the Jewish calendar begins when the first sliver of moon becomes visible after the dark of the moon. In ancient times, the new months used to be determined by observation. When people observed the new moon, they would notify the Sanhedrin. When the Sanhedrin heard testimony from two independent, reliable eyewitnesses that the new moon occurred on a certain date, they would declare the rosh chodesh (first of the month) and send out messengers to tell people when the month began.

The problem with strictly lunar calendars is that there are approximately 12.4 lunar months in every solar year, so a 12-month lunar calendar is about 11 days shorter than a solar year and a 13-month lunar is about 19 longer than a solar year. The months drift around the seasons on such a calendar: on a 12-month lunar calendar, the month of Nissan, which is supposed to occur in the Spring, would occur 11 days earlier in the season each year, eventually occurring in the Winter, the Fall, the Summer, and then the Spring again. On a 13-month lunar calendar, the same thing would happen in the other direction, and faster.

To compensate for this drift, the Jewish calendar uses a 12-month lunar calendar with an extra month occasionally added. The month of Nissan occurs 11 days earlier each year for two or three years, and then jumps forward 30 days, balancing out the drift. In ancient times, this month was added by observation: the Sanhedrin observed the conditions of the weather, the crops and the livestock, and if these were not sufficiently advanced to be considered “spring,” then the Sanhedrin inserted an additional month into the calendar to make sure that Pesach (Passover) would occur in the spring (it is, after all, referred to in the Torah as Chag he-Aviv, the Festival of Spring!).

They used to observe the state of the barley in the exact same way we now do. Continuing….

A year with 13 months is referred to in Hebrew as Shanah Me’uberet (pronounced shah-NAH meh-oo-BEH-reht), literally: a pregnant year. In English, we commonly call it a leap year. The additional month is known as Adar I, Adar Rishon (first Adar) or Adar Alef (the Hebrew letter Alef being the numeral “1” in Hebrew). The extra month is inserted before the regular month of Adar (known in such years as Adar II, Adar Sheini or Adar Beit).

In the fourth century, Hillel II established a fixed calendar based on mathematical and astronomical calculations. This calendar, still in use, standardized the length of months and the addition of months over the course of a 19 year cycle, so that the lunar calendar realigns with the solar years. Adar I is added in the 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th and 19th years of the cycle. The current cycle began in Jewish year 5758 (the year that began October 2, 1997).

1997 was 5758 according to Judaism and this Metonic cycle began that year. The leap years or the extra month, Adar Bet is added just before Aviv the following year of 1998.

Now get out your charts that we have provided in the Prophecies of Abraham and begin to count the 19 year cycles. Aviv 1998 being year 1. When you do this 2016 is year 19 in the metonic cycle and it is a leap year. An extra month will be added just before Aviv 2016. you can also go to this link to see that yes indeed an extra month is added in March 2016.

We have been telling you for some time now that in 2016 The Hebrew Calendar and the Sighted Moon Calendar will be 30 days apart due to the fact the Barley will be ripe and Passover 2016 will be about March 24th. (this article originally written in July 2015)

There will also be a dark moon at this time and again in the fall at Sukkot. A dark moon warns us of famine coming.

We have also been telling you that the time when this calendar issue will be finally fixed is in 2030 when the two witnesses bring back the 13 tribes of Israel from their imminently impending captivity to keep Passover in Jerusalem.

But there is going to still be those who want to use the Hebrew Calendar and not the sighted moon calendar.

During WW II 6 Million Jews were slaughtered. WHY? They all used the Hebrew Calendar. They all went by the conjunction of the moon and they all went by the postponement rules. They all were keeping the Holy Days at the wrong time. It was the same as if they were keeping the Saturday Sabbath on Sunday. It is the wrong day to what Yehovah commanded them to keep.

Yes, in a recent News Letter I warned you that if you are keeping the wrong Holy Days, or using a calendar that Yehovah has not sanctioned then you will lose your salvation. Some have become very upset that I said such a thing. So they attack me. Is it my fault they are not aligned with Yehovah? NO! I have merely pointed out that they and those who do not obey Yehovah are sinning, and sinners are not found in the Kingdom.

Deu 32:15  But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked. You grew fat, thick, and satisfied. Then he forsook God who made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. And on top of this none of them were keeping the Sabbatical years.

These people esteem Yehovah lightly. In other words they do not fear Him enough to search for the truth and then OBEY HIM. It has nothing to do with me. We are laying out all the facts here. You get to choose to be a Hypocrite or a Moron should you choose to ignore these truths and return to the Hebrew Calendar or the Enoch Calendar or the Lunar Sabbath Calendar. You choose.

This word Salvation here is

H3444     yeshu??a?h       yesh-oo’-aw

Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: – deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.

H3467     ya?sha?    yaw-shah’

A primitive root; properly to be open, wide or free, that is, (by implication) to be safe; causatively to free or succor: – X at all, avenging, defend, deliver (-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save (-iour), get victory.

This Rock that makes you safe, the Rock of your Freedom, the Rock that preserves your life and keeps you safe from harm…..This is your salvation and why you should choose to obey and keep the Holy Days when your supposed to keep them. Or you can choose the next Holocaust for those who refuse to obey and that is soon to begin. Again your choice.

So Judaism was not keeping the 4th commandment and for not doing so they were punished in the Holocaust of WW II and the price for breaking the 4th commandment is death.

Exo 31:14  You shall keep the Sabbath therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone that defiles it shall surely be put to death. For whoever does any work in it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 15  Six days may work be done, but on the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Jehovah. Whoever does any work in the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16  Therefore the sons of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant. 17  It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel forever. For in six days Jehovah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.

They had broken the sign that identified them as Yehovah’s. Yes, they kept the weekly Sabbath, but not the Holy Days and not the Sabbatical years. Yes, they thought they were keeping them. Christians think they are being Holy by keeping Sunday as the Sabbath. But Yehovah never said to keep Sunday as the weekly Sabbath. Nor did He authorize us to use the Metonic cycle of arbitrarily adding a 13th month at predetermined years in a 19 year cycle invented by men.

Now let us look at what we are told in Revelation.

Rev 12:13  And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who bore the man child . 14  And two wings of a great eagle were given to the woman, so that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the serpent’s face. 15  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water like a flood after the woman, so that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. 16  And the earth helped the woman. And the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17  And the dragon was enraged over the woman, and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Here then is my question to you.

When the women flees into the wilderness where she is protected for 3 1/2 years from Satan, who are these other people that Satan now makes war with who keep the commandments and the testimony of Yehshua?

Why did they not flee with the rest of the woman into the wilderness?

I say to you that they do not go because they are following the Jewish Hebrew Calendar with the postponement rules and the Metonic cycles of added leap years without regard to the barley being aviv.

When you count out the Metonic cycle as we have now shown to you, year 2017 is year one in the metonic cycle. 2030 would then be the 14th year of this cycle and it is a forced leap year.

Passover 2030 will be about March 19 according to the Sighted moon calendar. Or at least it has the potential at this date. We will not know for sure until that very year. But because of the Metonic cycle 2030 is the 14th year and a leap year, making Passover come on April 18 of 2030.

We are given a very specific command about Passover. We are to be ready to flee and at this time Yehovah will judge.

Exo 12:11  And you shall eat of it this way, with your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in a hurry. It is Jehovah’s passover. 12  For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. And I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt. I am Jehovah.

When one group eats Passover in 2030, they will then flee to the wilderness and they will be pursued by the army of the beast. When that army is swallowed by the earth, the beast then turns to make war on those gathering in Jerusalem for the Passover on April 18.

The two witnesses are killed during this time. They have caused the world trouble for the past 3 1/2 years. It is because of this trouble that Israel is brought back to the land from captivity. But just like Jacob, it is a deception to slaughter them all once again. This is why the woman flees when she see the armies surrounding Jerusalem. But those coming late or those who do not see the armies and are going to keep the Passover according to the Hebrew calendar will be slaughtered, as Revelation warns you.

After this there will be no more calendar confusion. It will be the original sighted moon calendar based on the barley being aviv. And those in the wilderness with the Messiah at Bozrah will be keeping the Holy Days at the right time and the Sabbath and the Sabbatical years.

Many people write and say there is no 13th month in the bible so they are not going to keep it. Yet in their hypocrisy if they are keeping the Holy Days according to the Hebrew Calendar, then they are keeping a 13th month approximately every 3rd calendar year. Yet they state categorically that they are not going to keep it.

Are You Going to Follow Man’s Rules or Yehovah’s Commandments? The Choice is Yours. Remember though, you must pay the price if you are wrong.

Ezekiel’s 13th Month

How to Prove the Bible uses a 13 Month

How do we prove that the 13th month was in fact part of the normal understanding of those who kept the Torah before Yehshua was born? That is not as easy to prove as it is to state. But it is very provable.

Many will go to the Courses that David set up to run the Temple as proof that there is no 13th month.

1Ch 27:1  Now the children of Israel after their number, to wit, the chief fathers and captains of thousands and hundreds, and their officers that served the king in any matter of the courses, which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year, of every course were twenty and four thousand. 2  Over the first course for the first month was Jashobeam the son of Zabdiel: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 3  Of the children of Perez was the chief of all the captains of the host for the first month. 4  And over the course of the second month was Dodai an Ahohite, and of his course was Mikloth also the ruler: in his course likewise were twenty and four thousand. 5  The third captain of the host for the third month was Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, a chief priest: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 6  This is that Benaiah, who was mighty among the thirty, and above the thirty: and in his course was Ammizabad his son. 7  The fourth captain for the fourth month was Asahel the brother of Joab, and Zebadiah his son after him: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 8  The fifth captain for the fifth month was Shamhuth the Izrahite: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 9  The sixth captain for the sixth month was Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 10  The seventh captain for the seventh month was Helez the Pelonite, of the children of Ephraim: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 11  The eighth captain for the eighth month was Sibbecai the Hushathite, of the Zarhites: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 12  The ninth captain for the ninth month was Abiezer the Anetothite, of the Benjamites: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 13  The tenth captain for the tenth month was Maharai the Netophathite, of the Zarhites: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 14  The eleventh captain for the eleventh month was Benaiah the Pirathonite, of the children of Ephraim: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 15  The twelfth captain for the twelfth month was Heldai the Netophathite, of Othniel: and in his course were twenty and four thousand. 16  Furthermore over the tribes of Israel: the ruler of the Reubenites was Eliezer the son of Zichri: of the Simeonites, Shephatiah the son of Maachah: 17  Of the Levites, Hashabiah the son of Kemuel: of the Aaronites, Zadok: 18  Of Judah, Elihu, one of the brethren of David: of Issachar, Omri the son of Michael: 19  Of Zebulun, Ishmaiah the son of Obadiah: of Naphtali, Jerimoth the son of Azriel: 20  Of the children of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Azaziah: of the half tribe of Manasseh, Joel the son of Pedaiah: 21  Of the half tribe of Manasseh in Gilead, Iddo the son of Zechariah: of Benjamin, Jaasiel the son of Abner: 22  Of Dan, Azareel the son of Jeroham. These were the princes of the tribes of Israel.

We then have Solomon telling us about how the Kingdom was provided for each month. Each region was to take care of the needs of the Kingdom for one month. The same as David had the Priest serve for 2 weeks twice a year and he also had the army rotating each month with each tribe taking turns standing guard. Solomon also had each region serve for one month at a time.

We had recently talked about the Taskmaster and how people were paying over 20% in taxes. Back then this would work out to be 1/12 of the year each region served the King. About 10%, which is a far cry from the 30%-50% many now pay.

1Ki 4:7  And Solomon had twelve officers over all Israel, which provided victuals for the king and his household: each man his month in a year made provision. 8  And these are their names: The son of Hur, in mount Ephraim: 9  The son of Dekar, in Makaz, and in Shaalbim, and Bethshemesh, and Elonbethhanan: 10  The son of Hesed, in Aruboth; to him pertained Sochoh, and all the land of Hepher: 11  The son of Abinadab, in all the region of Dor; which had Taphath the daughter of Solomon to wife: 12  Baana the son of Ahilud; to him pertained Taanach and Megiddo, and all Bethshean, which is by Zartanah beneath Jezreel, from Bethshean to Abelmeholah, even unto the place that is beyond Jokneam: 13  The son of Geber, in Ramothgilead; to him pertained the towns of Jair the son of Manasseh, which are in Gilead; to him also pertained the region of Argob, which is in Bashan, threescore great cities with walls and brasen bars: 14  Ahinadab the son of Iddo had Mahanaim: 15  Ahimaaz was in Naphtali; he also took Basmath the daughter of Solomon to wife: 16  Baanah the son of Hushai was in Asher and in Aloth: 17  Jehoshaphat the son of Paruah, in Issachar: 18  Shimei the son of Elah, in Benjamin: 19

Geber the son of Uri was in the country of Gilead, in the country of Sihon king of the Amorites, and of Og king of Bashan; and he was the only officer which was in the land.

This verse 19 is speaking of the 13th month and it was at this time that this person served. Of this one verse in 1 Kings 4:19 we have the following commentaries.

First is from John Gill

and [he was] the only officer which [was] in the land; which is not true of Geber; for there was another officer in the land of Gilead besides him, the son of Geber before observed, unlilless it should be rendered “in that land,” in that part of the land he had; but then the same might have been observed of all the rest of the officers: the words may be rendered best, “and there was one officer in the land”; which some understand of one officer over all the rest, Azariah the son of Nathan, 1 Kings 4:5; but it seems best what other Jewish writers say {u}, that this was another officer appointed for the intercalated month; when there were thirteen months in the year, there was an officer in the land fixed for that month to make provision out of the land; perhaps any where, where he pleased, being not limited to any certain place.

The following quote is provided by my friend Nehemiah Gordon.

The second century text Sifrei Devarim 2:3 comments on the one governor who was over the land in 1 Kings 4:18. “What is this ‘one’? This is for the month of intercalation.”

Some of you will dismiss this verse because it does not come right out and tell you. You have to think. OK then we have one more article to share with you but again you will have to think. Ezekiel’s 30 Days.

There are some out there who claim the world used to be 30 days every month. It never was nor well be. But they still insist based on Daniel 12’s 1335, 1260 and 1290 and the verse in revelation.

What your about to read is going to show you that there was not 30 days months. It is going to prove to you that they were going by 29 and 30 day months. And it is going to prove to you that they had a 13th month year. In fact if you understand prophecy then you know that the 1335 days of Daniel and the 1290 days of Daniel include in both of them a 13th month. But I digress. Let us now get to the 30 Days of Ezekiel.

    Shabbat Shalom Joseph and thank you for this newsletter!
    The Septuagint translation of 1 Kings 4:19 reads much differently than the Masoretic text.
    The Masoretic (KJV) reads:
    “ “Geber the son of Uri was in the country of Gilead, in the country of Sihon king of the Amorites, and of Og king of Bashan; and he was the only officer which was in the land.”
    The Septuagint (Brenton’s) reads:
    “ Gaber son of Adai in the land of Gad, the land of Seon king of Esebon, and of Og king of Basan, and one officer in the land of Juda.”
    The Masoretic seems to connect Geber/ Gaber with being the only officer in the land. But that is not what the word of Elohim truly says. The Masoretic conceals the truth of the matter.
    The Septuagint just proved that there is, in fact a 13th officer, which would make sense only for a calendar year which had a 13th month added to it. So you see, John Gill and others do not need to make the scriptures conform to their interpretations. The Septuagint which is the text that existed 400 before Yehoshua as well as what existed during the time He walked on earth interprets itself. We have hard evidence that what you are presenting, that a 13th month was added to the biblical calendar when needed, is in fact true!

    I also noticed that in 1 Chronicles 26:2-3
    There are two distinct individuals one identified as Isboaz the son of Zabdiel for the division of the first month AND
    a nameless individual of the sons of Tharez who is also over the first month.
    So in total there are THIRTEEN individuals.
    However could it be that Isboaz is over the first month as in Adar 1, and the nameless individual would be over the other first month or Adar 2 in the event of a leap year?

    Shalom Joseph
    Thanks for the update on Severain and Telesphore and his family. Horrible stuff for Burundi. Still can’t get my head wrapped around anyone using a bible calendar being dependent on the international dateline though. It doesn’t ring true as it was inserted so late into history. And as you said yourself the Jews in China had Sabbath on different days depending on what side of the street they lived on.
    I am still thinking it must relate to the Land of Israel given as promise as all other measurements are sourced from there to inform us of time as it relates to the Bible. I am still thinking the truth goes forth from there and it is why it was so important for Satan to stuff it up.
    Still can’t chew down on any other possibility and I HAVE tried. Will go to the MeWe and see what happens there.

    Thank you Joseph Dumond for mentioning your Impeachment trial in your newsletter. Yes, I used a little marketing spiel to capture readers attention hoping I wouldn’t get a call from you about what the he** I was doing to you. lol. Thankfully, you took time to read the post before reacting over the headline. Thankfully too, it has captured attention and a few more signed up.
    In this trial I present many of the issues that the “prosecutors” or THEY say Joe is wrong about.
    I then present the “Defense” to prove what Joe says.
    If anyone is new or fuzzy on some of these matters, this is a great place to catch up on the various topics. AND DO join in with your comments.
    We’re having a lot of fun with the interactive CHAT on MeWe so check it out for yourself. You might like it.
    We also talk prophecy over on the MeWe CHAT. I frequently post headlines on the GROUP page and we’re over on CHAT discussing anything on our mind. The trial is posted here as each step is presented, but we also discuss current headlines or simply answer a question someone has on their mind. There are a lot of knowledgeable people in the group so anyone new or advanced can feel welcome to join in.
    Did you notice what happened just yesterday? I can tell you Feb 11, 2020 was a BIG DAY.
    The Philippines announced plans to back out of the US military defense alliance after 2 decades. What does this mean?
    Well, if the Philippines is Ophir and the USA won’t be around much longer to protect them, they need to develop other plans. Likewise, if we (the USA) is using THEM as a military base, then THEY could get drawn into this war causing THEM harm too. That doesn’t translate to a place of safety for us.
    Joe was way ahead of us on this.
    In 2015 Joseph Dumond went to the Philippines to teach. He spoke before the generals and army staff. They kept asking him what they should do about China and the Spratly Islands. YES! The military generals asked Joseph Dumond what they should do!!! He told them they needed to align themselves with China because they couldn’t depend on the USA anymore. He knew the USA would soon be gone. Bishop Belgica listened to all his words and he has the ear of the President.
    In 2017 or 2018, Bishop Belgica accompanied President Duterte to China to resolve the Stratly situation and build better relations.
    Now the USA alliance is ending. The USA army base will be history. The Philippines IS INDEED listening to Joseph Dumond, prophecy, and the Torah. Are you?
    Here is a January 2019 newsletter about this:
    NOW THE SECOND THING that happened is this:
    This comes from the German Foreign Ministry at this link:

    Newsletter – The Insipient Decline of the West
    (Own report) – The Chairman of the Munich Security Conference, Wolfgang Ischinger, is focusing the debate of the coming weekend’s conference on the insipient decline of the West. Whereas, in the post-Cold War era western powers enjoyed “almost uncontested freedom of military movement,” this is no longer the case today, according to this year’s “Munich Security Report,” which Ischinger presented to the public yesterday. Even the “nearly unrivaled global superiority in military technology” NATO had enjoyed for decades, is now endangered. The report quotes French President Emmanuel Macron’s comment: “We were used to an international order that had been based on Western hegemony since the 18th century. Things change.” To prevent the West’s further decline, Ischinger is calling for resolute offensives in global policy. Sectors of the elites in several western countries are now turning to an ultra-right policy. In Berlin, this debate had contributed to the demise of the CDU chairwoman yesterday.
    In presenting the Report yesterday, Ischinger not only sharply criticized the overall western policy, but particularly that of the EU and German government,
    calling on Brussels and Berlin to take a more aggressive approach in global policy.
    That western powers had not prevailed against Russia and Turkey in Syria is an “unforgivable failure,” and must be seen as “first-class irresponsibility of the European Union and all its member states.”[4] For years, the demand for Berlin to “take on more responsibility” has been raised in Germany – more often since the 2014 Munich Security Conference.[5] However, this demand threatens to become an “empty phrase.”
    As a concrete step, Ischinger is demanding that “the principle of unanimity be abandoned” in EU foreign policy. In its foreign policy decisions, Brussels must become “faster, clearer and bolder”
    [6] – meaning an option of overruling individual member states on issues of foreign policy. Particularly a “European army” only makes sense “if we really speak with one voice,” according to the Chairman of the Munich Security Conference (MSC).
    … In spite of this horrendous number of victims, not a single western government has been held accountable for waging a war of aggression in violation of international law – not even the government, of which the MSC’s Board of Advisors, member David Miliband, had been a minister in 2003. Nor has anyone been convicted of the crimes of torture and murder committed since declaring the “War on Terror” in 2001. On the contrary, some who had been involved are among the highest officials of western countries today. ( reported.[9]) They are profiting from the era of western impunity.
    This is benefiting right-wing forces, which have massively grown stronger and are even at the head of governments in several countries. The report explicitly names Hungary and the United States under the Trump administration. In addition, the report notes numerous representatives of the extreme right, who consider themselves to be the more resolute defenders of the West, in face of its enemies.

    Can you believe that? THIS is straight up what Joe has taught us about the King of the North!!! And here is the foreign minister of Germany indicating THEIR OPINION and vote is the only one that matters. They don’t have time to wait for a majority rule from the EU member states.
    They call for a more aggressive approach in global policy.
    They are demanding that “the principle of unanimity be abandoned” in EU foreign policy.
    They are associating President Trump’s USA with the far right Nazi groups in Germany that are wrecking havoc to their Democratic Socialist party.
    AND THEN I noticed this next report out of the German Foreign Ministry that was actually dated January 28, 2020 and it too shows the rising of the King of the North and their effort to destroy the USA. Does ANYONE KNOW THIS besides SightedMoon?
    DOES NO ONE remember that IRAN attacked the USA first when they attacked our embassy? Appears Germany has forgotten just as the Democrats here in the USA forgot to. They’re all use to the USA (and Israel too) sitting back and getting attacked in every manner and apparently we’re just suppose to let the terrorists run over us. How DARE GERMANY condemn President Trump for protecting our embassy and our soldiers! If WE did this to an Iranian Embassy, they would praise an Iranian retaliation against us. WE would then be charged with war crimes. Instead, the victim is charged with war crimes. BEWARE of GERMANY!!!! They are back!!!

    The International Lawbreakers
    Government advisors are warning against the growing number of US international law violations. Berlin should take a stand
    BERLIN/WASHINGTON(Own report) – In reference to the US drone-murder of Iran’s General Qassem Suleimani, German government advisors are warning against a growing number of violations of international law by the United States.
    For years, “the foreign policy of the Trump administration has demonstrated that it has been a particular strain on international law,” observes an analysis published by Berlin’s German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP).
    Suleimani’s murder suggests that Washington is now beginning to extend its “war on terror” tactics, that had already become common-place under President Barack Obama – such as drone-murders – to leading representatives of foreign nations, it considers to be “a threat.”
    In the future, “state representatives should fear for their lives, when they travel outside their country,” because “the consequences for international diplomacy are hardly predictable.” The SWP advises the German government to take a clear stand. Of course, in its attempts to implement its globalist policies over the past few decades, Berlin, too, has repeatedly violated international law, often as an accomplice of the USA. more…

    THEN the THIRD THING was this report on the Corona Virus Epidemic
    This is an audio video recording of communication between U.S. Senator Cotton, U.S. General Townsend and Admiral of the Joint Chiefs of Staff regarding the “Corona Virus,” indicating it is a catastrophe of greater scale than “Chernoble” for China.

    THEN the FOURTH THING happened today, Feb 12, 2020, the day after all these other things happened. They’re coming WAY too FAST!
    This comes from our near and dear U.N. in retaliation for the Israeli and USA call to annex Judea and Samaria. They’re fighting back using Nazi tactics.
    Here is the link from World Israel News:

    “Certain critics compared the UN blacklist to the Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany in the 1930s.
    “Working at the behest of the notorious UN Human Rights Council, the UN Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights has officially decided to endorse anti-Semitic BDS by issuing a defamatory list of companies it claims are supposedly involved in ‘settlement activity,’” charged NGO Monitor on Wednesday.
    “These companies have done nothing wrong and many are involved in providing goods and services to Palestinians pursuant to the Oslo Accords,” said NGO Monitor Legal Advisor Anne Herzberg in a statement.
    “This list was made in conjunction with pro-BDS and PFLP-linked NGOs,” she added. The PFLP is the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, designated a terrorist organization by the United States, Japan, Canada, Australia, and the European Union, as well as Israel.
    Herzberg called on countries targeted by the publication of the blacklist, particularly Israel and the United States, to “reassess their relationships with Commissioner Bachelet’s office, including cancelling all cooperation and the millions of dollars and euros provided to her each year in funding. The maligned companies should begin assessing plans to take legal action against the UN officials who prepared the list and those who will propagate its false claims.”
    On Wednesday evening, the Israeli Foreign Ministry tweeted that the UN human rights commissioner’s “announcement regarding the publication of a ‘blacklist’ of companies represents the ultimate surrender to pressure exerted by countries and organizations interested in harming Israel.”

    Everyone, I include these newsworthy articles so you can see how ALL of them tie in to the very things Joe has been teaching us since 2005. We are seeing Germany, rise up again as the King of the North! Everyone laughed at him about this. We are seeing the Philippines end a military agreement with the USA and turn to China for help laying the groundwork for a place of safety in Ophir.
    We talk about these things on MeWe to make sure everyone is seeing prophecy before their eyes.

    Today, a calendar based on the moon and the sun requires a 13th month approximately every 3 years. Most likely, originally it was not so, the lunar and solar cycles were both 360 days.
    The lunar year is 11 days shorter than the solar year meaning that after three years, the lunar cycle would be 33 days off, necessitating an additional month. The Modern Hebrews call this month Veadar (meaning “second Adar”). Ancient Hebrew calls the Adar Shaniy. A 13th month is proven from scripture in Yechezqel. Eze 1:1:
    And it happened in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth of the month, as I was among the captives by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Mighty Creator.
    Eze 1:2 On the fifth of the month, the fifth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin the king…
    So here Yechezqel received a vision from YaHuWAH on the 5th day of the fourth month, in the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity. In Eze 2:7 And you shall speak My Words to them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, for they are rebellious.
    Then in Eze 3:15 Then I came to the exiles at Tel-abib, those dwelling by the river Chebar. And I sat there where they were sitting. I also dwelt there seven days, being benumbed among them. This brings us to the 11th day of the fourth month, in the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity.
    Then, in Yechezqel 4:1-11 he is given instructions by YaHuWAH to lay on his left side 390 days and when he accomplishes this he is to then lay on his right side 40 days; equaling a total of 430 days. Eze 4:1 And you, son of man, take a brick to yourself, and lay it before you, and engrave on it a city, Jerusalem.
    Eze 4:2 And lay a siege on it, and build a fort on it, and pour out a ramp on it. And place a camp on it, and set battering rams all around on it.
    Eze 4:3 And you, take a griddle of iron to yourself, and place it as a wall of iron between you and the city. And place your face against it, and it shall be under siege, and thrust upon it. It is a sign to the house of Israel.
    Eze 4:4 And you, lie down on your left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel on it. The number of the days that you shall lie down on it, you shall bear their iniquity.
    Eze 4:5 For I have laid on you the years of their iniquity, according to the number of days: three hundred and ninety days. And you shall bear the house of Israel’s iniquity.
    Eze 4:6 And when you complete them, even lie on your right side, the second. And you shall bear the house of Judah’s iniquity forty days; a day for a year. I have set it for you, a day for a year.
    Eze 4:7 And you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and your arm bared; and you shall prophesy over it.
    Eze 4:8 And, behold, I will put cords on you, and you cannot turn from your side to your other side until you have completed the days of your siege.
    Eze 4:9 And you, take to yourself wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and spelt, and place them in a single vessel; and make them for yourself into bread, to the number of days that you are lying on your side. You shall eat it three hundred and ninety days.
    Eze 4:10 And your food which you shall eat shall be by weight: twenty shekels a day. From time to time you shall eat it.
    Eze 4:11 And you shall drink water by measure: the sixth part of a hin. From time to time you shall drink.
    Then in Eze 8:1 And it was in the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth of the month, I was sitting in my house. And the elders of Judah were sitting before me. And the hand of Yahuwah fell on me there. Here Yechezqel was sitting in his house in the sixth year (of king Jehoiachin’s captivity) on the 5th day of the sixth month.
    My friend Dauwd explains:
    This shows that Yechezqel had finished his instructions given in chapter 4 because he was sitting in his house not lying on either his left or right side. If Yechezqel was using a strictly solar calendar he could not have possibly obeyed YaHuWAH’s instructions by the time reference given in Yechezqel 8:1.
    From the 11th day of the fourth month, in the fifth year of Jehoiachin (Yechezqel 1:1-2; 2:7; 3:15) to the 5th day of the sixth month in the sixth year of Jehoiachin (Yechezqel 8:1) is only 413 days on a strictly solar calendar. This is 17 days short.
    Using 12 lunar months, this accounts for only 403 days. Which is 27 days short. If Yechezqel used only a solar calendar he disobeyed YaHuWAH. However, had this particular year consisted of 13 months (Solar and Lunar Calendar time) Yechezqel obeyed the instructions of YaHuWAH exactly as a 13th month can be 29 or 30 days long. Here it was 29 days long, giving him enough time to lay on his side for the remaining 27 days. Keep in mind that Yechezqel 4:9-10 shows that Yechezqel was told to make enough bread to last him the entire 430 days.
