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.

August 23, 2008


Shabbat Shalom Brethren,

A hearty welcome to those who are just receiving this News Letter for the very first time. With this News Letter and the web site we show you how the Jubilee and Sabbatical years show you exactly where we are in Prophecy. We show you how the Holy Days and Sabbatical years are to be apart of your life in the same way the Sabbath is to be a part of your life.

Once again this week Rabbi Ray Maccabee has played the DVD of the Chronological order of Prophecies in the Jubilee, on his radio show. For the second time it received a huge audience. The largest he has had. He has never had so many calls come in for one show before this one and all of them thanking him for sharing this message. We talked the day after and he again told me to send him some mp3 teachings which he is going to air on a regular basis twice a week or more.

You can view this DVD for free on the web site. Just look under Movies: Jubilee

This Radio stuff is all new to me and I will go through this wide open door starting now. So please do keep me in your prayers. This radio station goes out around the world to Messianic Jewish and Orthodox Jewish brethren.

I have also just checked the hit counter. On a normal day we are getting about 500 to 700 hits a day now. When I send out the News Letter it goes up to over 1500. I have not yet sent this letter out and we are already over 2400. I must credit this to the radio show.

I tell you this so you too can share with me the amazing things Yahweh is doing with this web site and News Letter. I am not smart enough or clever enough to make these things happen. It is all His doing and to His glory. Please share with your family and friends and brethren this web site and this News Letter and very soon this radio prod cast. Help them to get ready for the plague that is soon to be here.

Here is a note from a new reader in Australia.



Thank you so much for sending me your newsletter. I have been having a feast on some of the back issues.

I do not have the facilities to hear audio on my computer, neither am I able to listen to DVD’s. Do you have any text for the content of those
items on audio and DVD, please?

How can I give to you please? I am in Australia. Can I send a cheque or give via PayPal?

Thanking you,


Last week was my sons wedding. I tell you ladies, it was the most beautiful thing I have seen. His bride, my new daughter, was stunning. I became weepy many times during the day and evening. As tough as I think I am, in reality I am just a big marshmallow. I wanted to include a picture, and well do so later when I get the good ones.

In our small group where we meet, the host Ron Buhler has shown us over a period of time the importance of our diet. As we enter the time of Pestilence which is just around the corner, he has again reminded me that we need to get in good shape in order to avoid some of the illnesses that are coming.

Then this week in the news here in Ontario there is an outbreak. Three people in Ontario have died from listeriosis and a fourth death is still under investigation, the Public Health Agency of Canada confirmed Friday afternoon. 17 across the country are infected. The cause of the outbreak is tainted meat.

Last weeks News letter made some of the readers very upset as we challenged them to obey. They still resist and need your prayers to help them to see the error of their ways.

This weeks News Letter is not one I like to send out. It confronts me and causes me to have to think about change. No one wants to admit they might be wrong and few still want to change. But, I have conducted some experiments with my diet and must say I find that what is said below to be true. I have a few other DVDs you should look up on line or at Ron’s web site.

You can ask Ron about the DVD called the Mad Cowboy, and Cancer can be beaten, which just blew me away. Please do contact him on this subject as it is something he is very knowledgeable about.




We read in the Bible the importance of foundations. In Matthew 7:24-27, we read: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”

Obviously, from the above text, Jesus was referring to two foundations upon which one can build a house -“ one is “rock”, and the other is “sand”. In this text, the house built on “sand” was not able to withstanding the storms that came its way and fell. Whereas, the house which was built on “rock” endured the storms!

In the above text, Jesus was talking about spiritual foundations. I want to use this same scripture as a springboard text to talk about a physical foundation, the very foundation upon which The Hallelujah Diet is based.

Hallelujah Acres is founded upon a single verse found in the Bible in Genesis 1:29.

The verse tells of a diet God gave Adam immediately after He had created him.

My objective in this article is to establish that the diet Hallelujah Acres teaches was not a diet limited to Adam and his time in the garden, but was meant by God to be the diet of mankind for as long as man walked this earth.

As I write this, I am fully cognizant of the fact that if Hallelujah Acres does not have the proper foundations, it too, like that house built upon the sand, will fall.

But if Hallelujah Acres and The Hallelujah Diet we believe and teach are built upon a rock, it will stand against all the storms that may come against it.

Ever since Rhonda and I established Hallelujah Acres 16-years ago, the storms have raged against us, or should I say against The Hallelujah Diet we proclaim. Most of the storms have come from the Christian community and preachers in particular, as they vehemently protest our teaching against the eating of animal flesh.

They say that what we are teaching here at Hallelujah Acres is not biblical. Oh, they acknowledge that the Genesis 1:29 diet excluded meat, but tell us we need to read the rest of the bible, and that it is OK to eat animal flesh today.

When we started Hallelujah Acres on February 12, 1992, it was just Rhonda and I and no one wanted the Health Message we were proclaiming! But against great opposition we continued to proclaim God’s original Genesis 1:29 diet that had brought physical healing to each of us. Gradually a few people did listen, applied what we were teaching, got well, and could not keep their mouth shut.

Today, we estimate there are over two million people worldwide following The Hallelujah Diet, while tens-of-thousands have written to tell us that they too, after applying the biblical diet principles we were teaching, also got well from all their physical problems. In fact, these tens-of-thousands have reported recovering from over 170 different physical problems after adopting this Hallelujah Diet.

So what is it that Hallelujah Acres believes and teaches? What is the biblical foundation upon which Hallelujah Acres, and the diet we teach, rest?


I personally believe that from the beginning, from the very creation of the human race, it was not God’s will or plan that we humans ever become sick! So God, in His infinite wisdom took this human creation and placed it in a garden. A garden this Creator God had spent the first 4-days of creation laying the groundwork for (Genesis 1:1-19), a garden God was preparing to receive His human creation after He had created him: “And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.” (Genesis 2:8)

So after God had finished creating this gorgeous garden, He creates man on the sixth day (Genesis 1:26-27) and places him in this garden the Bible calls “Eden”.

And what does God tell His human creation? He tells Adam that all the food needed to properly nourish his physical body was to be provided by the plants in that garden. You can read exactly what that diet consisted of in Genesis 1:29: “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed (vegetable), which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat (food).”

This diet, which was devoid of all animal source foods, I believe was not only the diet that God, the Creator of man, in His infinite wisdom knew would properly nourish Adam and then Eve, but would also be the very diet that would properly nourish and sustain human physical life as long as man walked this earth. I believe God also knew this diet was the very diet that would prevent His human creation from ever becoming sick.

How can we know this to be true? Because in Genesis 1:31 we read: “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”

From the very beginning, sickness was not part of God’s plan for his human creation because God said that everything He had created was “very good.” God would not have called the “food” in the garden He had told man to eat in Genesis 1:29 “very good” if it would cause sickness in His human creation.

Interestingly, in the New Testament, thousands of years later, we learn that it was still not God’s will that man be sick. Listen to what the Bible says in 3 John 1:2: “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospered.”

If we are supposed to “be in health”, why do people get sick, and why do people suffer with so many debilitating diseases?

The obvious answer is that the Genesis 1:29 diet, the diet God gave Adam, was intended by God to be the exclusive diet of mankind forever. But sin entered the human race, and man was banished from the garden. However, being banished from the garden did not bring sickness, nor was it the end of the Genesis 1:29 diet, because this same Genesis 1:29 diet continued to be the exclusive diet of mankind for the next 1,700 years – right up till the flood.

That’s right after Adam and Eve were banished from the garden, the Genesis 1:29 diet continued to be the diet of mankind right up until the time of the flood, which we read about in Genesis chapters 7 and 8.

During those 1,700 years preceding the flood, on this Genesis 1:29 diet, there is not a single recorded instance of sickness, and man lived to an average age of 912 (average age of the  patriarchs at death).



In Genesis chapters 7 and 8 we read about a flood that covered all the earth, a flood that had also covered all the gardens, which contained the foods God had told his human creation to consume in Genesis 1:29, the very foods man had subsisted on for the previous 1,700 years: “And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.” (Genesis 7:19) And so God, in His infinite wisdom, in Genesis 9:3, because all plant source foods had been destroyed by flood waters, gives man permission to consume the flesh of the clean animals that were on the ark – I believe for survival purposes: “Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat (food) for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.”

The verse critics of The Hallelujah Diet use against us more than any other is Genesis 9:3. They tell us that God gave man permission to consume animal flesh right here in Genesis 9:3, and thus there is nothing wrong with eating animal flesh. But once man got a taste of flesh, he could not leave it alone.

Interestingly, you will not find the word “glutton” or “gluttonous” used prior to the introduction of flesh into the human diet.

And when God was bringing the Israelites out of Egypt, what was the one thing they longed for? “And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots. . .” (Exodus16:3).



During the 40-years of wilderness wandering, when God was the dietitian, what did God provide them for food? Was it not “manna,” a pure vegan loaf made from coriander seed? “And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat.” (Exodus

Were the Israelites happy with this pure vegetarian loaf made from coriander seed? No, they demanded flesh. Listen to Moses as he talks to the Lord concerning the Israelites demand for flesh: “Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? For they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.” (Numbers 11:13)

And God gave them flesh in the form of quail: And there went forth a wind from the Lord, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp . . . and they gathered the quails . . . And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people and the Lord smote the people with a very great plague.” (Numbers 11:31-33)



What few people understand today, is that animal source foods are the root cause of almost every physical problem man experiences. If man would stop consuming animal source foods, he could almost totally eliminate any fear of ever having a heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, arthritis, osteoporosis, heartburn, acid stomach problems, and the list goes on and on and on.

There is nothing more dangerous to our health than animal source foods! And yet, there is nothing Hallelujah Acres is criticized for more, than our attempt to warn Christians of the inherent dangers found in these animal source foods. Sadly, these same animal source foods are the root cause of almost every physical problem we ask God in prayer to remove in our individual prayers and the group prayers offered up in our churches.

No wonder, the bible tells us in Hosea 4:6: “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because thou hast rejected knowledge . . ” And what could that knowledge possibly be? “Be not deceived, God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth (eateth), that shall he also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

The average person never associates the physical problems they are experiencing with the foods they eat. Christians seem to think that all they have to do is pray a spiritual prayer over something they are about to put into their mouth, and that spiritual prayer is going to remove any harmful effects that substance can have on their body.



In the first chapter of Daniel we learn that Daniel, along with the 3 Hebrew children were taken into the king’s palace to be prepared for service to the king. They were to be nourished with the foods that came from the king’s table.

In Daniel chapter 1:8 we read: “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”

Daniel requested that he and his companions not be required to eat the meat, but rather be given only “pulse” (veggies and water). The eunuch protested, saying that if he gave them only veggies and water, they would not be as healthy as those eating the king’s food. Daniel responded: “Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse (veggies) to eat, and water to drink.” (Daniel 1:12)

The eunuch granted their wish. This was the first double blind study ever conducted. And what were the results?

“And at the end of the ten days their countenances appeared fairer and fatter in flesh than all the children which did eat the portion of the king’s meat!” (Daniel 1:15)


Friends, “If the foundations (upon which our bodies were designed to be nourished) be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3)

We can get sick – OR – we can return to eating the foods God designed these physical bodies to be nourished with and “be in health!” The Hallelujah Diet is based on that very diet God gave Adam in Genesis 1:29! And what is so amazing to me, is that when a person returns to that Genesis 1:29 diet, the very diet that God, our Creator, gave Adam, and through Adam all mankind, thousands of years ago, almost everyone who applies God’s original diet to their body, gets well from almost every physical problem they were experiencing. And they usually just don’t get sick anymore, and they die of old age, rather than disease! With regard to a proper spiritual foundation, I will leave you with these verses from the Bible: “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. . . But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.” (I Corinthians 3:11 & 10)

If you are not already on The Hallelujah Diet, may I encourage you to give it a try! Hallelujah Acres is a Christian Ministry that teaches health from a Biblical perspective! Hallelujah Acres is trying to help the Christian community (as well as anyone else who will listen) realize that God’s ORIGINAL diet, as given by God in the Bible, in Genesis 1:29, was God’s perfect plan for the proper nourishment of His human creation. Multitudes have made this diet change that we teach here at Hallelujah Acres, and experienced normalization of weight, as well as the elimination of almost all their physical problems.
