News Letter 5844-050
18th day of the Eleventh month 5844 years after creation
February 14, 2009
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,
Before we get started with this week’s teaching, you can listen to the radio broadcast on your phone, by dialing 712-432-7220 and tune in at 10:30 AM Mountain Time on Tuesdays. You will hear this message with all my enthusiasm as I bring you the same message you are now reading. This is another tool brought to us by KMLS-FM 101.9 radio. The Kosher Messianic Orthodox Jewish Radio Station.
Once again we have on the nightly news tragedies that relate to the curses of Lev. 26. I do not need to tell you of the horrific forest fires in Australia. I have a letter from a friend down under and I will share it with you. Here is a video of someone right after they lost their homes in the mist of the fires. We need to pray for them.
Shalom Brother Joseph,
I hope all in Canada is well.
I hope your little girl is enjoying her time over here.
Just make sure that she is on her guard when not with her friends as in Australia is the same as anywhere else these days.
Gone are the days when we could run ourselves ragged all day anywhere we wanted to and still be perfectly safe. Our parents did not have to worry one little bit.
If we were over the top a friendly elder of the community would pull us into line in a nice way and if the local police sergeant spotted young scallywags up to mischief, a good old boot up the rear section followed, you were taken home and situation explained whereupon your dear old Dad would also reciprocate with a less than gentle boot up the clacker again !! Bless them all !!!
Well, you asked me to let you know what the situation is over here regarding the climate changes and the impact on people.
Jo, I am sad to say that the extremes are hitting people pretty badly.
Here in Queensland, we had over the last few weeks a few cyclones in the North and other depressions producing excessive rains.
The interior of the continent is mostly flat country and as you may imagine the place can get flooded very badly.
A week or so ago I read in the Brisbane “Courier Mail” that 60% of the interior was at that time under water, causing distress to many communities spread over vast areas of the state.
People were stranded in their houses in towns and on properties (farms or cattle stations) and The Emergency Services people were very busy rescuing many and dropping in food supplies where needed.
This suffering was on top of the severe droughts we have been subjected to for the last few years, as I am sure you are aware.
And, yes, most sadly of all, families, even some, who have lived on the same farms for generations the same as in Canada, have been forced to walk off the farm with nothing and start anew in the cities and towns.
Many farmers had been so badly broken that these proud Aussies have felt it necessary to take their own lives. The figures are not published, but I would estimate it personally as being quite a number. There has been no back up or counselling for these proud men, accustomed to holding their own on the land, overcoming drought, floods, pestilence, governments, Greenies, multinational corporations who claim that every plant on the face of the Earth is theirs and who hound and persecute farmers who have not the resources to fight them in court. If it is so hard for these men then look out everyone for the coming times of Jacob’s Troubles.
The extremes are such that in Victoria, in the hilly country out and around Melbourne, with the combination of the dry from the drought added to the fact that the Greenies have prevented the out of season back-burning of combustible material in the Bush, there have been and are huge fires in course and once again the country people and the poor old Rural Fire Brigade of Victoria and volunteers to help from other states are facing a huge task.
The latest figures indicate that over 750 properties have been destroyed, whole little towns decimated and over 100 lives lost to date.(the number is now over 200) There are 21 victims rescued in hospital in Melbourne at the moment and 9 of these people are on “Life-Support”.
Not only do the Greenies get the Parliaments to pass seriously restrictive laws designed to destroy our industries related to forestation and the livelihoods of the families there, but the misguided and mis-informed do-gooders plant trees in the middle of the “fire-trails” blocking the way for the fire-fighters to get to blazes in time and in some cases over the recent years causing the fire-fighters to be burnt to death.
Greenies hold the balance of power between the Australian Labour Party and the Australian Liberal Party/Australian National Party Coalition, so these weak kneed lilly-livered pollies, there are other words to describe them to my mind, but I will not write this in any media. The major parties in Australia will do anything to get the Greenies to support them in Parliament.
The Queensland poetess, Judith Wrigh summed up this land of Australia or Sinim in a poem of hers :
“I love a sunburnt country
Of drought and flooding rains”
Also regarding the Hate Legislation you have been speaking about, you bet we have it here and the groups who deny the name of our Elohim and call him a liar do indeed have their own lawyers and do go after anyone speaking in terms of scripture.
Yes, sermons and teachings have caused a ruckus in courts and matters setteld out of court.
You can very well guess that the group is religious and worships other than the Elohim of Israel and is pent on the destruction of Israel.
Nothing on Earth can convince me that they know very well who we actually are Jo.
Their hatred of us is just amazing.
There is a beautiful beach side suburb in Sydney, called Cronulla, well known for its surf-carnivals etc between the various surf-clubs from Australia and around the world.
Common incidents are such that Aussie families will be on the beach, surfing, barbecuing etc as normal, and as you may imagine the girls like to wear their bikinis as usual.
The other lot come on with their women all wrapped up, in burkas or veils etc and shout obscenities at our girls for the way that they dress and call them what you may imagine. This causes serious fights all the times. These same, shall we say men of Middle Eastern origin, go after our girls and rape them as if they will get a blessing for the act. The Imams in many cases said that it is OK to do so to these ##### type of women.
Last year there were riots in that suburb and surrounding areas, when Aussie men, fed up with the years of abuse and the unwillingness of our Police to do much (ham-strung by legislation as per usual – including the anti-discrimination and hate legislation etc), took matters into their own hands and belted the hell out of the men from the afore-stated community in retaliation (I think that there had been a specific incident that triggered it off). Ohhh the poor mis-understood MIddle Eastern community was up in arms at the abuse etc, you could tell from the delivery by some of the reporters and people on the scene that they must have felt it was time to put a stop to the abuse by the said groups.
Two Aussie girls were just travelling, on a train I think at around the same time, and a group of youths, from the same shall we say community, attacked the girls and raped them.
When caught they reported that they had acted in accord with what their Imam had told them in a sermon at the local mosque.
The young offenders are in jail for the offences and will serve a major part of their lives as a result of the loud public outcry from the PUBLIC. I bet they would have gotten much lighter sentences if there had not been such an outcry !!
The family of several brothers involved are trying to get them exonerated as they had not done anything really wrong and were model citizens !!
I think I remember one male of this middle eastern religion stating that they will OWN THIS COUNTRY and will kick us out or get rid of us at some time in the future.
Problem is apart from the religious one, is that these people come societies run by totalitarian strong-men (including clerics) and do not respect anything to do with democracy as such. They and the other groups, such as greenies, worm away at our originally scripturally based legal structure until it is nothing but a poor limp sham !
They do what they like.
“The man of lawlessness” in essence is here already and in fact I am sure that the actual individual is himself here in the flesh right now.
Of interest, regarding climate, in Tasmania, where my Dad’s family is from, the usually green land is suffering under a severe drought for many years now.
There is a huge hole in the ozone layer over Tassie and has been there for many years.
The occurrences of cancer have shot up through the roof of the years.
We are also waiting to see what happens in Detroit etc at the moment, regarding the US automobile industry, as it can seriously hurt the Australian economy.
Mitsubishi has pulled out of Australia, despite very generous assistance from the Federal Government.
If GM goes under, will GM Holden in Australia continue since it makes a good return, especially on export sales. You may know the two-door coupe Pontiac GTOs over there, they are actually a GM “Holden Monaro” or “HSV Coupe” here in Australia.
There is a guy that the government does not want to listen to, despite showing ministers and experts what he has done to actually reverse the problem and return the land to lush productive pastures with plenty of water etc.
The major river system in the eastern part of Australia is the called The Murray-Darling System, and is in the course of dying. The Murry, Darling and Murrumidgee Rivers run from the north of Queensland down through New South Wales and down into Victoria and South Australia.
Bad farming practices, lack of action by governments and ill-advised action has caused the problems.
This Peter Andrews has the answers and I am sure you will be impressed as I was, being a country boy from Tassie.
Peter has written two books and travels the country lecturing to all who will listen.
His results speak for themselves. He has turned virtual desert into beautiful country and is helping all the people who will listen. He has indeed turned things around for these people.
His books are “Back from The Brink” and “Beyond The Brink”. They are published by the ABC Books and wing of Australian Broadcasting Commission, the government station that runs Channel 2 throughout Australia.
You may be able to get hold of the books from the Australian Broadcasting Commission website http://www.abc.net.au/ under the ABC Shop http://shop.abc.net.au/ .
I have both of them and recommend them to all.
The DVD that I have is from this source and is from a documentary series called Australian Story, which week to week presents interesting stories of real Australians and matters of concern to the community.
Well, that is all for now, but as we all know the process is marching on relentlessly.
Yours in Yahweh,

Map of the Murray-Darling Basin
Brethren, I would ask you to pray for the fire fighters and the people in this area. My own Nephew leaves this weekend to go from Canada to assist the Australians in this fight against the fires. His name is Michael Sugg.

The Murray-Darling Basin is 3,375 km long, drains one-seventh of the Australian land mass, and is currently by far the most significant agricultural area in Australia. The name of the basin is derived from its two major rivers, the Murray River and the Darling River.
Most of the 1,061,469 kmÂ² basin is flat, low-lying and far inland, and receives little rainfall. The many rivers it contains tend to be long and slow-flowing, and carry a volume of water that is large only by Australian standards.
Although the Murray-Darling Basin receives 6% of Australia’s annual rainfall, a very large proportion of Australia’s irrigation resources are concentrated there. It contains 42% of the nation’s farmland and produces 75% of the nation’s food.
The basin drains roughly three-quarters of New South Wales (including all of the A.C.T.), half of Victoria, a substantial portion of southern Queensland, and a small part of eastern South Australia. In the drought throughout much of Australia during the early years of the 2000s, many people complained that upriver dams were stopping too much of the water flow in the lower parts of the river system.
In general, the climate is hot and dry in summer and mild in winter. Much of the terrain is semi-arid and nearly all of it is only a few tens of metres above sea level. Typically, tree-lined watercourses meander slowly through mulga or mallee scrub, grasslands or chenopod shrublands. Rainfall is unpredictable and varies from place to place, as well as year to year, but is typically 250 to 300 mm a year (10 to 12 inches).
In the south-east, average temperatures are lower, it 500 mm (20 inches) a year is representative, most of it falling in winter and spring. Along the southern and eastern borders of the basin are the inland slopes of the Great Dividing Range. It is here that most of the water in the rivers of the basin originates either as rainfall or, in the case of the Australian Alps which straddle the New South Wales-Victoria border, as winter snowfall.
In April 2007 the former Australian prime minister John Howard announced that the region was facing an “unprecedentedly dangerous” water shortage and that water might have to be reserved for “critical urban” water supplies. He commented that “We should all pray for rain because the situation for the farmers of Australia in the irrigation area, the Murray-Darling Basin, is critical” amid concerns about the impact of the drought on Australian agriculture.
In other news;
Terry Cochrane, caretaker of the Lake Pillsbury Resort in Northern California, stands on the dock Thursday. During a normal wet year, the water would be approximately 30 to 40 feet deep at the dock. Department Director Lester Snow said the results indicate California could be heading for a third dry year.
“We may be at the start of the worst California drought in modern history,” Snow said in a statement. “It’s imperative for Californians to conserve water immediately at home and in their businesses.”
Levels were 49% of normal in the northern Sierra and about 63% of normal in the central region and 68% of normal in the southern region.
This year’s drought has already significantly damaged California’s economy. Agricultural crops are being plowed under, housing and business projects are being delayed, and regional water authorities are instituting mandatory water rationing to a reliable water supply. Due to California’s water shortages, thousands of jobs are lost and construction projects are on hold because a water supply cannot be guaranteed. In addition, drought conditions have created a situation of extreme fire danger, already the worst fire season in the State’s history.

Brethren some of you still do not believe me that Yahweh is pouring out his curses on man as I write. Some of you still think these curses only apply to Israel when they are in the land of Canaan. I am going to give you a link to a bunch of current videos. Please watch them. If your computer will not play them go to the library and watch them. I am showing you things and telling you what the scriptures say. Now watch the nightly news cast and listen to what they are saying.
Here is another important link to the current world wide drought. Please read it. No You must read this and be aware of just how potentially dangerous the world situation is. http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=DEC20090210&articleId=12252
And on top of this consider the following and think of the implications this has on your family. From http://www.marketskeptics.com/2009/02/does-chinas-60-million-tons-of-wheat.html
My reaction: This is a really scary idea. What if China’s 60 million tons of wheat reserves don’t actually exists?
1) The Chinese wheat crop is the single largest wheat crop in the world, roughly equal to the entire US and Russian wheat crops put together.
2) A serious crop failure in China would have major global implications, if China’s wheat reserve don’t actually exist.
3) Considering it (theoretically) has an amount of wheat roughly equal to the anticipated entire US 2009 production in state reserves, the Chinese government is making an extreme effort to save its crops (spending $12.69 billion in drought-hit areas).
4) There was a huge scandal in China not that long ago when it was discovered that storekeepers were getting paid by the government to store grain that wasn’t actually there.
5) China’s 60mmt wheat reserves could be a giant Madoff-style grain storage scheme.
6) China imported wheat last month.
Conclusion: If this is even remotely true, 2009 is going to be a really interesting year.
Some observers are anticipating “competitive currency devaluations” in addition to deflation for 2009 (nations devalue their currencies to help their export sector). The coming global food shortage makes this highly unlikely. Depreciating their currency in the current environment will produce the unwanted consequence of boosting exports’of food. Even with export restrictions like those in China, currency depreciation would cause the outflow of significant quantities of grain via the black market.
Instead of “competitive currency devaluations”, spiking food prices will likely cause competitive currency appreciation in 2009. Foreign exchange reserves exist for just this type of emergency . Central banks around the world will lower domestic food prices by either directly selling off their reserves to appreciate their currencies or by using them to purchase grain on the world market.
Appreciating a currency is the fastest way to control food inflation. A more valuable currency allows a nation to monopolize more global resources (ie: the overvalued dollar allows the US to consume 25% of the world’s oil despite having only 4% of the world’s population). If China were to sell off its US reserves, its enormous population would start sucking up the world’s food supply like the US has been doing with oil.
On the flip side, when a nation appreciates its currency and starts consuming more of the world’s resources, it leaves less for everyone else. So when china appreciates the yuan, food shortages worldwide will increase and prices everywhere else will jump upwards. As there is nothing that breeds social unrest like soaring food prices, nations around the world, from Russia, to the EU, to Saudi Arabia, to India, will sell off their foreign reserves to appreciate their currencies and reduce the cost of food imports. In response to this, China will sell even more of its reserves and so on. That is competitive currency appreciation.
When faced with competitive currency appreciation, you do NOT want to be the world’s reserve currency. The dollar is likely to do very poorly as central banks liquidate trillions in US holdings to buy food and appreciate their currencies.
I was not going to send out this report but I will do so even though I am not sure it is 100% correct. It concerns the Dry Bulk Index and how it is a measurement of things to come. http://www.etftrends.com/2008/12/what-baltic-dry-index-says-about-economy-and-etfs.html
I am also as strongly as possible suggesting that each of you build a cistern and get it ready as quickly as possible. Building it during this Sabbatical year would be a good thing. I will be building them in my yard this summer. It is going to be a life or death situation.
Many of you are stocking up food in keeping with the law to store food for the Sabbatical year which begins Aviv 2009, expected to be around March 28th or 29th of 2009. I applaud you, but suggest you store more for the next year as well based on the reports from the videos I have shown you above.
A couple of sites for you to visit are

In other news from around the USA, Augusta Region (Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina) are still in drought in spite of the rain that has fallen all around the area. And this is the rainy season.
Then on Tuesday a rare February tornado touched down. But what got me was the comments made afterwards.
‘It may take months, even years, before the community of about 4,600 fully recovers, but Henry said state residents have “become very good at responding to disaster.”
“Oklahomans have gone through this kind of disaster before,” he said. “We know what we are doing. We will rebuild.”
Sheriff’s Deputy David Gilley said between 100 and 150 homes were destroyed in the town, located about 100 miles south of Oklahoma City.
Residents apparently had good warning of the approaching twister. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning, meaning a tornado is imminent and residents should take shelter, at 6:50 p.m. for Carter County. Another was issued at 7:15 p.m. when the actual tornado was spotted. The tornado hit Lone Grove at 7:25 p.m.
The Lone Grove tornado was the third to cause multiple fatalities in the state since March 2007, when a Panhandle couple became the state’s first tornado deaths in almost six years.
The storm took many by surprise because even in tornado-prone Oklahoma, February twisters are rare. According to the weather service, 44 have touched down in the state during the month of February since 1950. ‘
He said Oklahomans have gone through this kind of disaster before,” he said. “We know what we are doing. I have got to say NO THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING! If you keep on getting hit by these disasters do you not think you aught to turn to Yahweh and repent. Repent of what they will ask. Then tell them from not keeping the Sabbath, from not keeping the Holy Days, and from not keeping the Sabbatical years. From not keeping the ten commandments!
If they did just that, just that and nothing else any different than what they are doing now, these tornados would drop in intensity over night and disappear. Yahweh would then begin to bless and protect them. Brethren it is that simple.
As well Californians are also very concerned about the Asian citrus psyllid. California and Arizona growers are bracing for a fight they say is potentially more damaging than the Mediterranean fruit fly because entire groves, not just fruit, are at risk.
Already, Asian citrus psyllid has hurt citrus production in parts of China and infested millions of dead and dying trees in Florida and Brazil.
This past week I have had a number of pastors write me to complain about the message being given here. I want to thank those of you who are giving this news letter to your pastors and telling them to watch the DVD. They are watching, but with a hardened heart. They watch to criticize and not to learn.
One pastor wrote me and said I have found what you are doing particularly disturbing. He went on to say you seem insistent on creating panic among people–and in particular the People of God.
Brethren, if what I am saying is scaring the tar out of you, then you know that it is you who is out of step with Yahweh.
I am showing you the nightly news and the headlines of the papers from around the world. Many of you send them to me. You do this because you too see how scriptures are lining up, in particular Lev 26 and the curses of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. These pastors and religious leaders do not want you to know this. They prefer it when you remain asleep. You are easier to manipulate.
Please wake and up and tell the others in your own congregation to WAKE UP. It is now your job to warn them. As we have just read in Australia many went and warned their neighbors, but the fires came too fast. Many died. I am warning you that this fire of drought and famine is coming, you too must warn others. Soon it will be upon us and too late for many and they will die.
Tell people like Lou Dobbs and other news castors to watch the DVD. The more of you who write these people the better the chance that they will look at it. Just like these pastors are now doing, even though they do not like it.
Yahweh has called you to know these truths at this time. Do not be afraid. He is testing you to see if you will obey or not. If you refuse to obey, well then yes you do have reason to be afraid. But I make no apology for being one of a very few who are willing to take the ridicule in order to shout out this warning. Tell me how many others are teaching you about the curses as found in Lev 26? Who else is showing you how they line up with the nightly news?
Certainly not the pastors that are complaining about being scared because they do not obey Yahweh, teaching their flocks that the law is done away and all you have to do is love. They do not actually teach the law is done away, just the 4th commandment is done away.
So for those of you who are scared and for those who only want to love, here is what Yahweh says on the matter, because yours and my opinion does not matter or count.
Ex 20:6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
De 5:10 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
De 7:9 Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;
De 11:1 “Therefore you shall love the Lord your God, and keep His charge, His statutes, His judgments, and His commandments always.
I hope these pastors read this and let it sink into their heads. This is how you love Yahweh, by keeping the commandments. As I said it is just that simple. Let’s read some more though just to prove the point.
De 11:13 ‘And it shall be that if you earnestly obey My commandments which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul,
De 11:22 “For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to do–to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him–
De 19:9 and if you keep all these commandments and do them, which I command you today, to love the Lord your God and to walk always in His ways, then you shall add three more cities for yourself besides these three,
De 30:16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.
Jos 22:5 But take careful heed to do the commandment and the law which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, to keep His commandments, to hold fast to Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”
Ne 1:5 And I said: “I pray, Lord God of heaven, O great and awesome God, You who keep Your covenant and mercy with those who love You and observe Your commandments,
Ps 119:47 And I will delight myself in Your commandments, Which I love.
Ps 119:48 My hands also I will lift up to Your commandments, Which I love, And I will meditate on Your statutes.
Ps 119:127 Therefore I love Your commandments More than gold, yes, than fine gold!
Da 9:4 And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments,
Joh 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.
Joh 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”
Joh 15:10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
Ro 13:9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
1Jo 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments.
1Jo 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
Why do these wolves who pose as shepherds not get it? In order to love Yahweh and to love Yahshua you must keep the commandments. I have just quoted it 21 times. These are not my words yet they say I am scaring people who do not keep the law. They need to be scared, they need to be terrified. They are going against Yahweh. That would terrify me.
Jas 2:19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe–and tremble!
Once Yahweh has set in motion the terrible things you see on the news right now and the things to come, you only have one hope. I have quoted it twice above.
Ex 20:6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
De 5:10 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments
He will show mercy to you and protect you and keep you from the fiery trial
1 Peter 4: 18 Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”
Things are going to get tough. Those who obey will be saved, but just barely. Those who do not ought to be terrified as this pastor has said. For who in their right mind would want to hear the following words from our Messiah
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ 24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
1Jo 3:4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness.
Psalm 119:172 My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness.
Ezekiel 14: 12 The word of the Lord came again to me, saying: 13 “Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. 14 Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord God. 15 “If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they empty it, and make it so desolate that no man may pass through because of the beasts, 16 even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters; only they would be delivered, and the land would be desolate. 17 “Or if I bring a sword on that land, and say, ‘Sword, go through the land,’ and I cut off man and beast from it, 18 even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but only they themselves would be delivered. 19 “Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast, 20 even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.” 21 For thus says the Lord God: “How much more it shall be when I send My four severe judgments on Jerusalem–the sword and famine and wild beasts and pestilence–to cut off man and beast from it? 22 Yet behold, there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out, both sons and daughters; surely they will come out to you, and you will see their ways and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, all that I have brought upon it. 23 And they will comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings; and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it,” says the Lord God.
Yes brethren if you do not keep the commandments you have sinned. If you remain in your sin you will be told â€˜I never Knew Youâ€ and because of our sins this land, and this world are suffering the curses of Lev 26 which are again told to us in Ezekiel 14.
Yes these pastors do need to be afraid and do need to reread the scriptures.
But does it not say that Satan is attacking those who KEEP the commands of Yahweh? Why is he not attacking those who do not keep the commandments? Is it not because they are already deceived as these pastors are?
It is now just past the full moon. In two months time we will begin to celebrate Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread. We read in Mt 24:45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?
So with the Passover season approaching and with many new people learning the Torah and wanting to keep the Holy Days we shall begin now to teach on these.
Once again I am telling you to turn off Oprah and Dr. Phil and to start to read you bible. There is nothing on TV worth watching. Many of you are sharing this News letter and encouraging others to read it and to prove those things said here true or false. I do thank you. But in reality it is those who have come here and learnt the truth that are thanking you. You have saved their lives.
But once you have been turned on to the truth, do not just read what is written here. Search other sites and other groups and learn also from them, what is true and what is not true.
I keep telling you how little time is left and so I am trying to give you as much information as I can without you being over whelmed. Turn off the TV and this will help.
We now have just two months to Passover.
Immediately after the Passover comes a festival that shows us the next step in the plan of Yahweh. After Yahshua is sacrificed as the Passover Lamb, and we have been forgiven for our sins, how do we continue to avoid sin, since we must go on living in newness of life? How do we live as Yahweh’s redeemed people? We find the remarkable answer in the symbolism of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
When Yahweh freed Israel from slavery in Egypt, He told His people that for “seven days you shall eat unleavened bread” (Exodus 12:15). Verse 39 further explains: “And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait, nor had they prepared provisions for themselves.”
The leavening process, which makes bread rise, takes time. The Israelites had no time to spare when they left Egypt, so they baked and ate flat bread. What started out as a necessity continued for a week. Yahweh appropriately named this time the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6), or Days of Unleavened Bread (Acts 12:3).
When Yeshua came to earth as a human, He observed this seven-day festival’ sometimes called the Feast of Passover by the Jews because of the proximity of the Passover to the Days of Unleavened Bread. Yeshua kept it as a child and later as an adult (Luke 2:41; Matthew 26:17). The early Church, kept it as well.
Yahweh gave His earliest instructions concerning this festival to the Israelites as they prepared to leave Egypt. “This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD’ a lasting ordinance. For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for everyone to eat-that is all you may do” (Exodus 12:14-16, New International Version).
This is where we get the expression of spring cleaning from De leavening our homes.
Each year as the Israelites observed this feast, it reminded them of Yahweh’s deliverance of their forefathers from Egypt. The Creator instructed, “Celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I brought your divisions out of Egypt” (verse 17, NIV). The exodus from Egypt remains as a foundational reason for observing this feast today. Just as Yahweh delivered ancient Israel, He delivers us from our sins and difficulties.
Now notice Yeshua’s teaching about leaven, which expands the meaning of this feast.
During Yahshua’s ministry He performed two miracles in which a few fish and loaves of bread fed thousands of people. After one of these incidents, when His disciples had gone around the Sea of Galilee, they forgot to bring bread with them. So Yeshua told them, “Watch out and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
The disciples thought Yeshua was referring to their lack of bread. However, He was using the occasion to teach them by calling on the symbolism of leaven. Yeshua asked them, “How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Then the disciples “understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees” (Matthew 16:5-12, NASB).
Some of the members of the religious establishment of Yeshua’s day appeared to be righteous, yet they secretly practiced sinful behavior. Yeshua let them know He knew their hearts. They may have appeared righteous to other people, “but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness” (Matthew 23:28).
The Days of Unleavened Bread remind us that with Yahweh’s help we must remove and avoid all types of sin “symbolized by leaven” in all areas of our life.
Symbolically we do this by cleaning our homes and our places of business and our cars and removing any bread or bread products that contain leaven or yeast from them.
During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the apostle Paul taught the same spiritual lessons as Yeshua, invoking the comparison of sin to leaven. In the context of reprimanding the Corinthian congregation for its divisions, jealousies and tolerance of sexual misconduct, Paul wrote: “Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Yeshua, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians 5:6-8).
The church at Corinth was obviously and unmistakably keeping the Feast of Unleavened Bread, to which Paul repeatedly alluded. However, Paul used the Corinthians’ faithful obedience in keeping the feast physically (removing leaven from their homes) as a basis to encourage them to celebrate this feast with proper understanding of its spiritual intent.
Today removing leaven from our homes for seven days reminds us that we, too, through prayer and Yahweh’s help and understanding, must recognize, expel and avoid sin. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is thus a time of personal reflection. We should meditate on our attitudes and conduct and ask Yahweh to help us recognize and overcome our shortcomings.
Paul spoke of this much-needed self-reflection in 2 Corinthians 13:5 when he told the Corinthian church: “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, unless indeed you are disqualified.”
Paul explained the significance of the phrase “Yeshua the Messiah is in you” in Galatians 2:20: “I have been crucified with Yeshua; it is no longer I who live, but Yeshua lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of Yahweh, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
These seven days of self-examination prove invaluable in helping us to devote our lives to Yahweh and Yeshua. This week-long period also pictures our eventual triumph over sin. As Yahweh delivered the ancient Israelites from enslavement to Egypt, so He delivers us from our enslavement to sin (Romans 6:12-18).
We learn by doing. We learn spiritual lessons by doing physical things. Performing the task of deleavening our homes reminds us to vigilantly watch for sinful thoughts and actions so we can avoid them. Yahweh knows that, in spite of our good intentions, we all sin.
Many years after his conversion, Paul described the powerful human tendency to sin. “I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of Yahweh according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank Yahweh-through Yeshua the Messiah! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of Yahweh, but with the flesh the law of sin” (Romans 7:21-25).
Paul knew life itself is a battle with sin. The Bible speaks of “the sin which so easily ensnares us” (Hebrews 12:1). We have our own part to play in struggling to overcome sin. Yet, paradoxically, we must rely on Yahweh to help us. Paul explained this to the Philippians by telling them to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is Yahweh who works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:12-13, King James Version).
Our observance of the Days of Unleavened Bread helps us realize our need for Yeshua’s help in overcoming our weaknesses. Yet this feast is certainly a time for rejoicing because Yeshua freely gives us the help we need. Yeshua, the Lamb of Yahweh, was sacrificed for the forgiveness of our sins, thus unleavening, or cleansing, our lives. He continues to help us live obediently through Yahweh’s Spirit dwelling in us.
Paul tells us in Ro 2:13 (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified;
James tells us it is the doers of the law who will be justified. Jas 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
Let’s read what James also has to say about doing things.
James 2:14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your F6 works, and I will show you my faith by my F7 works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe–and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? F8 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” F9 And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Some brethren do not believe we should keep the days of Unleaveded bread. Some do but they say you do not have to remove the leaven from your homes.
The bible says we do have to keep this time for ever, and that you do have to remove the leaven, and that by doing so you are acting out your faith by your works.
I am sharing this message now with you, so that you have time to begin to clean one room or two a week before the Days arrive in about two months time. You will see as you move your frig and stove how the crud has piled up over time and how hard it is to remove. This is the same as sin sneaking in to your lives and you not knowing it until one day it is exposed. Then you see how hard it is to remove or correct that sin. It is not easy.
You will learn by doing. Please consider doing the necessary work in cleaning your home so that you will be ready for the Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread.
Always remember that as you move closer to Yahweh, He moves closer to you. When you stop so does He and he waits for you to make the next move.
The more you learn and practice the more that will be revealed to you. But if you do nothing you learn nothing.
So may your spring cleaning be bountiful in teaching you many lessons from the scriptures.
