Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,

This is my 4th time at writing this article. I had it complete last Friday. But it keeps disappearing on me. I guess Yehovah wanted to do it over and over until I got it right.

The Philippines Foundation

Last Sunday, June 14, 2020, marked our first business meeting in which sightedmoon.com along with MLTC of the Philippines began to draw together in a legally functioning entity,  doing the work of Yehovah in the Philippines and throughout Asia. It is through this foundation and or corporation that we seek to teach Torah to the nations and raise up qualified Torah teachers to send to those nations. We also seek to create and operate farms and aquaponic projects in accordance with biblical principles and understanding, (ie the Sabbatical years of rest).

It is by understanding the Jubilee Cycles and where we are in that cycle that shows us just how much or just how little time is left. And in understanding this we must also understand that when the Two Witnesses begin their work there will not be any rain for 3 1/2 years anywhere on the earth. Part of our mandate will also be to prepare those who will listen and obey, how to have water during this time.

Our goal is to bless and help the Philippine people and those other nations of Asia and Africa that will turn to and begin to obey Yehovah.

From this meeting, those who attended presented a brief resume of themselves so we could all get to know each other and who had what skills. Sightedmoon.com has grown beyond my ability to manage it effectively and to do this work at the same time. Even now as we approach the deadline for this Newsletter, the meetings we have had and the many discussions I have had with various members about this, has taken up most of my time.

After this meeting, I began to ask certain people to begin to help organize our efforts and streamline us into a proper foundation and or corporation so that we can function effectively in the Philippines and then branch out to all of Asia and Africa. They are currently working on having a business plan drawn up for us.

I have also asked others during the week to take on certain projects and begin to work on them immediately. If I have not yet asked you to take on a project, we probably will be speaking to you soon. If you want to be a part of this effort, please contact me and we will add you to a team.

We sometimes have some differences of opinion, and that is healthy. However, we are looking for mature brothers and sisters to help with the work of discipling our brethren, in the Father’s plan for us each to have the testimony of the Messiah, and keep the Torah (See Revelation 12:17 and 14:12). So, here is what we are asking, if you want to help Sightedmoon.com and MLTC in our mission, we can definitely use your help. But time is short and there is no time for strife among us. We are teaching the biblical timeline, the sabbatical cycles, the Jubilee years, and the connection between the Messiah and the Mosaic covenant. We do not need that focus divided with otherworldly news and information, no matter how true it may, or may not, be. So, if you choose to join the team, these are the only things we will be discussing and working towards teaching until time is up. If you are called to something greater than the discipleship of all people before the return of Messiah, just tell us, we will send you out with prayer and blessing to pursue your own calling. We love you, but we are out of time for distractions.

I would like to share with you the rough outline of our ten-year plan.

2020

We must prepare now for the global events that are coming starting in 2026. We need a place to do this work, Isaiah suggests the Philippines and to hide and collect the remnant of Israel during the next 6 year.

2021

2022

2023

2024

2025

2026

Two witnesses begin to avenge the death of the Saints who have been slaughtered for the past 6 years. Water & food provisions must be in place by this date.

2027

Drought begins to set in, animals and crops begin to fail, famines begin to increase. This is the start of 1.7 Billion people dying.

2028

Need to prepare to collect the remnant of Israel and the gold and silver.

2029

The world gives up the remnant of Israel. The Philippines collect this remnant and brings them to Israel before Passover 2030. They also bring the gold and silver to make the wave sheaf offering of the remnant of Israel. Philippines people should be ready to function as High Priest for the offering.

2030

Two Witnesses are Killed Passover 2030. The Remnant flees to Moab where they are hidden as a shadow in the night for 3 1/2 year tribulation.

 


 

Solar Eclipse June 21, 2020

This Sunday, June 21, there will be a Solar Eclipse over much of Asia. You can view all the details at this link.

I also want to remind you of the things we have been sharing now for a few weeks. Please go back to read our Newsletter of just last week under the section The World Has Gone Crazy. We shared with you the following and I quote;

According to Cyrus, we are now about to enter the 4th part of this crazy cycle over the next two weeks.

  • Phase IV = June 14 – July 4. How much = 75%.

We then went on to tell you about the tensions with China. Now looking back since our last News Letter…

June 10, 2020, the Stock market plunged from a high on June 10, 2020 (The 17th of the 4th month when many of us fasted) and fell again on Thursday and still more on Friday, June 12, 2020 (the 40 days since May 3 when we kept Shavuot and another day I fasted on) and did not begin to climb back up until Monday, June 15, 2020, after hitting a low o 24,868. A 2462 point drop in a matter of days.

Saturday, June 13, 2020, Protesters shut down a major highway in Atlanta on Saturday and burned down a Wendy’s restaurant where a black man was shot dead by police as he tried to escape arrest, an incident likely to fuel more nationwide tensions over race and police tactics. The Police officer was fired and the Chief of Police resigned immediately.

Then North Korea blows up the South Korean liaison office on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. The media reported that the North’s KCNA said the nation had cut off all communication between the two countries. North Korea had previously cut a key hotline with the South and had threatened to shut down all communication with its neighbour to the South.

Tuesday, June 16, 2020, 20 Indian soldiers killed in a confrontation with China in the Himalayas. One report I read said they were not shot but they were all beaten to death with clubs.

Since 2005 we have been warning you about the year 2020 being in the middle of the 70th week or 70th Jubilee Cycle according to Daniel 9:24-27. We also warned you that it lined up with the 4th curse of Lev 26.

Lev 26:23  And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will still walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:24  then I will walk contrary to you and will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:25  And I will bring a sword on you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant. And when you are gathered inside your cities, I will send the plague among you. And you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

Lev 26:26  When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight. And you shall eat and not be satisfied.

Lev 26:27  And if you will not for all of this listen to Me, but will walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:28  then I will walk contrary to you also in fury. And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

Lev 26:29  And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat.

WHO declared a worldwide Pandemic on the very same day we kept Passover on March 10, 2020. I could not have planned for Passover to be moved ahead one month. Yehovah had the barley found that was ripe one month before we expected it this year. Yehovah changed the date for Passover. We obeyed Him. Then the week before Shavuot on May 3, 2020, the UN warned of biblical famines coming in three months’ time. That is this summer. At the same time as COVID 19 raced around the world a biblical sized famine struck East Africa, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Eastern China.

Then we had the riots which began May 25, 2020. All these years we were telling you Shavuot was going to be May 31, 2020. Now Black Lives Matter is calling for defunding of the Police and Government agencies are bowing down to these protesters’ demands.

We also have the Stock markets drop from a high on the DOW of 29,551 Feb 12, 2020, down to 18,591 on March 23, 2020. A fall of 10,960 points in just a few days. Millions were laid off work at this time. Rents and mortgage deferred for 3 months. This means they will have to begin to pay those rents come July and August. And many are still not back to work nor will be going back as their jobs and companies have gone.

We have told you for 15 years now that the end of the USA and UK nations would begin in the midst of 2020. Some accuse us of being a false prophet because the USA and UK are not destroyed this year already. It has begun. It is coming. Wait for it.

Hab 2:2  And Jehovah answered me and said, Write the vision, and make it plain on the tablets, that he who reads it may run.

Hab 2:3  For the vision is still for an appointed time, but it speaks to the end, and it does not lie. Though it lingers, wait for it; because it will surely come. It will not tarry.

 


New Moon of the 5th Month

We are expected the New Moon to be seen in Israel this coming Monday night, June 22, 2020. We hope you all will go out and try and sight the moon with your families and see who can see the moon first. There is a reason for doing this. By doing this one simple act of sighting the moon each month you will be teaching your children and those with you why no man can know the day or the hour. And that day and hour is a feast day and is just 2 months away from now.

You can leave a comment at the end of this News Letter letting us know who saw the moon, when and where you were.

 


Sim Shalom

Each day as I go through the Amida, I read the 18th blessing. And it was not until the last couple of days that it occurred to me. Sometimes I am very slow to understand.

Sim Shalom

Grant peace, goodness, blessing, grace, kindness, and compassion upon us and upon all of Your people Israel. Bless us, our Father, all of us as one, with the light of Your face, for with the light of Your face You gave to us, Yehovah our God, the Torah of life and love of kindness, righteousness, blessing, compassion, life, and peace. And may it be good in Your eyes to bless Your people Israel at every time and at every hour with Your peace. Blessed art You, Yehovah, Who blesses His people Israel with peace.

This past week I have written this newsletter three times. And three times it has been deleted. I got very mad at James and blamed him but it was not him. Originally I was going to write to you and explain the race riots now going on across the USA and the world. I had written about each of them all the way back to the 1900s. I was going to explain to you about white privilege that is now being used to shame people and what is the truth.

Read what you are told in Deuteronomy 28.

Deu 28:15 And it shall be, if you will not listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, to observe and to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, all these curses shall come on you and overtake you.

Deu 28:16 You shall be cursed in the city, and cursed in the field.

Deu 28:17 Your basket and your store shall be cursed.

Deu 28:18 The fruit of your body shall be cursed, and the fruit of your land, the increase of your cows, and the flocks of your sheep.

Deu 28:19 You shall be cursed when you come in, and cursed when you go out.

Deu 28:20 Jehovah shall send on you cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed, and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings by which you have forsaken Me.

This has come upon us because we have removed Yehovah from our lives. We have not kept the Covenant of Mount Sinai. We have forsaken Him. So read some more.

Deu 28:21 Jehovah shall make the plague cling to you until He has consumed you from off the land where you go to possess it.

Deu 28:22 Jehovah shall strike you with lung disease and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew. And they shall pursue you until you perish.

In case you were not aware, the USA now has 2,263,651 cases of COVID 19 and 120,688 deaths as of June 18, 2020.

Again Lev 26 warns us these things were coming.

Lev 26:23  And if you will not be reformed by Me by these things, but will still walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:24  then I will walk contrary to you and will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:25  And I will bring a sword on you that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant. And when you are gathered inside your cities, I will send the plague among you. And you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

Lev 26:26  When I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight. And you shall eat and not be satisfied.

Lev 26:27  And if you will not for all of this listen to Me, but will walk contrary to Me,

Lev 26:28  then I will walk contrary to you also in fury. And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

Lev 26:29  And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat.

Going back to Deuteronomy, I want you to recall that before COVID 19 we had an extreme drought and biblical sized wildfire across Australia and Western USA.

Deu 28:23  And your heavens over your head shall be bronze, and the earth that is under you iron.

Deu 28:24  Jehovah shall make the rain of your land powder and dust. It shall come down from the heavens on you until you are destroyed.

You can read all of Deut 28, but here is the point I wanted to share with you.

Deu 28:43  The stranger within you shall get up above you very high, and you shall come down very low.

Deu 28:44  He shall loan to you, and you shall not loan to him. He shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

Deu 28:45  And all these curses shall come on you, and shall pursue you and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you.

Deu 28:46  And they shall be on you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed forever.

Deu 28:47  Because you did not serve Jehovah your God with joyfulness and with gladness of heart for the abundance of all things;

Deu 28:48  therefore you shall serve your enemies which Jehovah shall send against you, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in the lack of all things. And he shall put a yoke of iron on your neck until he has destroyed you.

We are told in Genesis,

Gen 18:18  And Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the persons of the earth shall be blessed in him?

Gen 18:19  For I know him, that he will command his sons and his house after him, and they shall keep the way of Jehovah, to do justice and judgment, that Jehovah may bring upon Abraham that which He has spoken of him.

And again we are told,

Gen 12:2  And I will make you a great nation. And I will bless you and make your name great. And you shall be a blessing.

Gen 12:3  And I will bless those that bless you and curse the one who curses you. And in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Yehovah chose Abraham who was the least of all nations to make him a blessing to all nations. That was our calling. That was the calling of all of Israel.

Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Luke 24:47 and in His name repentance and forgiveness of sins will be proclaimed to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem.

Why are we to do this? Why are those of us who are of the nation of Israel, whether grafted in or native-born to go and teach the nations? It has nothing to do with race or supremacy or any of those things now being taunted on the nightly news.

Israel, the descendants of Abraham, whether they know it or not have been blessed above all nations just as Yehovah promised Abraham. They did not get those blessings because of anything they did or did not do. Yehovah kept a promise He made to Abraham. I do not call this white privilege. I do it call it an awesome responsibility. One in which Israel has dropped the ball.

Think for a moment about what you are told in Proverbs.

Pro 6:20 My son, keep your father’s commandments, and do not forsake the law of your mother;

Pro 6:21 bind them upon your heart forever, tie them around your neck.

Pro 6:22 When you go, it shall lead you; when you sleep, it shall keep you; and when you awake, it shall talk with you.

Pro 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life;

“the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light” We are to exemplify the Torah by our living and in so doing be a light to the nations about this way of life.

Mat 5:13  You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its savor, with what shall it be salted? It is no longer good for anything, but to be thrown out and to be trodden underfoot by men.

Mat 5:14  You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Mat 5:15  Nor do men light a lamp and put it under the grain-measure, but on a lampstand. And it gives light to all who are in the house.

Mat 5:16  Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.

The Israelite nations, have lost their savor and are in the process of being thrown out. Both the USA, and the State of Israel have claimed to be that light to the nations but they are not being a light.

In his writings and speeches, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion (1886–1973) emphasized his vision of the state of Israel as a moral and social beacon to the whole world, and by that, in his view, it shall implement the vision of the prophets.[6] The selection of the Menorah as the Emblem of Israel was derived from the image of the state of Israel as a “Light Unto the Nations”.[citation needed]

Israel’s vision of “Light Unto the Nations” was reflected in the words of the current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in his address at the 2010 Herzliya Conference:

“You are dealing with our people’s fate because it is clear today that the fate of the Jewish people is the fate of the Jewish state. There is no demographic or practical existence for the Jewish people without a Jewish state. This doesn’t mean that the Jewish state does not face tremendous challenges, but our existence, our future, is here. The greatest change that came with the establishment of the Jewish state was that Jews became more than just a collection of individuals, communities and fragments of communities. They became a sovereign collective in their own territory. Our ability as a collective to determine our own destiny is what grants us the tools to shape our future—no longer as a ruled people, defeated and persecuted, but as a proud people with a magnificent country and one which always aspires to serve as ‘Light Unto the Nations’.”[7]
Benjamin Netanyahu in his 2017 UN speech quoted Isaiah again that the state of Israel is “a light unto the nations, bringing salvation to the ends of the earth”. [8]

In February 2018, President Donald Trump referred to the United States as a “light to all nations” at the Christian National Prayer Breakfast

Then as I searched this more, as I searched for more information about being a light to the nations, I was led to Isaiah 49. Now pay attention to what is being said in the following quotes from Isaiah. The servant is not Yehshua, but it is Israel. Israel is the servant of Yehovah.

The Lord’s Chosen Servant

Isa 42:1  Behold My Servant, whom I uphold; My Elect, in whom My soul delights. I have put My Spirit on Him; He shall bring out judgment to the nations.

Isa 42:2  He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.

Isa 42:3  A bruised reed He shall not break, and a smoking wick He shall not quench; He shall bring out judgment to truth.

Isa 42:4  He shall not fail nor be discouraged until He has set judgment in the earth; and the coasts shall wait for His Law.

I was not looking for the coasts, which is a reference to the Philippines which are waiting for His laws as I write.

Isa 42:5  So says Jehovah God, He who created the heavens and stretched them out, spreading out the earth and its offspring; He who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it.

Isa 42:6  I Jehovah have called You in righteousness, and will hold Your hand, and will keep You, and give You for a covenant of the people, for a Light of the nations;

Israel has failed to do this. I was reading this as if Israel was going to be that nation to be given as a covenant of the people for a light of the nations. But it is not Israel that waits for the Torah. It is the coasts that are waiting for the Torah.

Isa 42:7  to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness out of the prison house.

Isa 42:8  I am Jehovah; that is My name; and My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to graven images.

Isa 42:9  Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they happen, I cause you to hear.

I assume I was reading this incorrectly and kept looking for scriptures with light to the nations in them. But the very next verse I see when I read the whole section is blowing me away. Yehovah is talking to the Coastlands and telling them to pay attention.

Isa 49:1  Listen, O coastlands, to Me; and listen, lend your ear, peoples from afar; Jehovah has called Me from the womb; He has made mention of My name from My mother’s bowels.

Isa 49:2  And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me, and made Me a polished shaft. He has hidden Me in His quiver,

Isa 49:3  and said to Me, You are My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

Here again, Yehovah is telling us Israel is His servant but they have not taken the Torah to all the nations. In fact, in these last days, they have done away with the covenant.

Isa 49:4  Then I said, I have labored in vain; I have spent My strength for nothing, and in vain; yet surely My judgment is with Jehovah, and My work with My God.

Isa 49:5  And now, says Jehovah who formed Me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob again to Him, Though Israel is not gathered, yet I shall be glorious in the eyes of Jehovah, and My God shall be My strength.

Isa 49:6  And He said, It is but a little thing that You should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to bring back the preserved ones of Israel; I will also give You for a light to the nations, to be My salvation to the end of the earth.

Isa 49:7  So says Jehovah, the Redeemer of Israel, His Holy One, to Him whom man despises, to Him whom the nation hates, the servant of rulers: Kings shall see and arise, rulers also shall worship, because of Jehovah who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, and He shall choose You.

Who is Yehovah talking to here? He is talking to that person who is going to gather the tribes of Israel and those preserved and this person will be a light to the nations at the same time.

The capital “H” in him whom man despises and him whom the nations hate the servant of rulers. There are no capitals in Hebrew. This is a translator’s interpretation. Yehovah is not a servant, Yehshua is not a servant. So again who is this talking about? Who is going to be despised and hated in these last days?

Rev 11:3  And I will give power to My two witnesses, and they will prophesy a thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

Rev 11:4  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth.

Rev 11:5  And if anyone will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone will hurt them, so it is right for him to be killed.

Rev 11:6  These have authority to shut up the heaven, that it may not rain in the days of their prophecy. And they have authority over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.

Rev 11:7  And when they complete their testimony, the beast coming up out of the abyss will make war against them and will overcome them and kill them.

Rev 11:8  And their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

Rev 11:9  And many of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will see their dead bodies three days and a half, and they will not allow their dead bodies to be put in tombs.

Rev 11:10  And the ones who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, and will make merry, and will send one another gifts, because these two prophets tormented those living on the earth.

Are you listening Filipinos to what Yehovah is saying? You have a major role in these last days. Are you listening? Are you double-checking what I am showing you here?

Then I went to the next verse about being a light to the nations. Again look at what I found.

Isa 51:1  Listen to me, pursuers of righteousness; seekers of Jehovah: Look to the rock from which you were cut, and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.

Isa 51:2  Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

Isa 51:3  For Jehovah shall comfort Zion; He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of Jehovah. Joy and gladness shall be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody.

Isa 51:4  Listen to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, O My nation; for a law shall go out from Me, and I will make My judgment to rest for a light of peoples.

Isa 51:5  My righteousness is near; My salvation has gone out, and My arms shall judge peoples; the coastlands shall wait on Me, and on My arm they shall trust.

Isa 51:6  Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall become old like a garment; and its inhabitants shall die in the same way. But My salvation shall be forever, and My righteousness shall not be broken.

Isa 51:7  Listen to me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My Law; do not fear the reproach of men, nor be afraid of their revilings.

Isa 51:8  For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool; but My righteousness shall be forever, and My salvation from generation to generation.

Isa 51:9  Awake! awake! Put on strength, O arm of Jehovah. Awake! as in the days of old, in the generations of old. Was it not You who cut Rahab into pieces, piercing the sea-monster?

Isa 51:10  Was it not You who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep; who made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?

Isa 51:11  Therefore the redeemed of Jehovah shall return and come with singing into Zion; and everlasting joy shall be on their head. Gladness and joy shall overtake them; sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

Isa 51:12  I, I, am He who comforts you. Who are you, that you should fear a man. He shall die, or from the son of man? He shall be made as grass?

Isa 51:13  And you forget Jehovah your Maker, who has stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. And you dread continually, every day, because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy. And where is the fury of the oppressor?

Isa 51:14  Bowed he hurries to be freed, and not that he should die in the pit, nor that he lack his bread.

Isa 51:15  But I am Jehovah your God, who divided the sea, and its waves roared; Jehovah of Hosts is His name.

Isa 51:16  And I have put My Words in your mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the heavens and lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, You are My people.

Again Isaiah is telling us the Coastland will wait upon Yehovah. And again the Law and His judgments will be the light to the peoples or a light to the nations.

 

The Future Glory of Israel

Isa 60:1  Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Jehovah has risen on you.

Isa 60:2  For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah shall rise on you, and His glory shall be seen on you.

Isa 60:3  And the nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawning.

Isa 60:4  Lift up your eyes all around, and see. All of them gather themselves; they come to you. Your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.

Isa 60:5  Then you shall fear and become bright, and your heart shall throb and swell for joy; because the abundance of the sea shall turn to you, the wealth of the nations will come to you.

Isa 60:6  A host of camels shall cover you, the camels of Midian and Ephah. All of them from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall proclaim the praises of Jehovah.

The Queen of Sheba as we have explained in our other teachings on the Philippines is in Hebrew bf. The shine and the bet could easily be pronounced Cebu.

Isa 60:7  All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you; the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you. They shall come up on My altar pleasing Me, and I will glorify the house of My glory.

The word Kedar deserves you looking it up.

H6938   (Strong)
קֵדָר

qêdâr

kay-dawr’

From H6937; dusky (of the skin or the tent); Kedar, a son of Ishmael; also (collectively) bedawin (as his descendants or representatives): – Kedar.

The Philippine people have dusky or ashy coloured skin.

Isa 60:8  Who are these who fly like a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

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

Here again, as we look for the light of the nations I have found it in relationship with the People of the Philippines, the coastland who wait for His Torah. The same place where the ships of Tarshish once came with the Queen of Cebu or Sheba. I was not looking for this nor expected it.

Isa 60:10  And the sons of strangers will build up your walls, and their kings will serve you; for in My wrath I struck you, but in My favor I had mercy on you.

Isa 60:11  Therefore your gates will always be open; they will not be shut day nor night, to bring to you the wealth of the nations, and their kings may be led.

Isa 60:12  For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you will perish. Yes, those nations will be completely wasted.

Isa 60:13  The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box tree together, to beautify the place of My sanctuary; and I will make the place of My feet glorious.

Isa 60:14  Also the sons of your afflicters shall come bowing to you; and all your despisers will bow down at the soles of your feet. And they will call you, The city of Jehovah, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

Isa 60:15  Instead of being forsaken and hated, so that no one passes through, I will make you for everlasting majesty, a joy of many generations.

Isa 60:16  You will also suck the milk of nations, and suck the breast of kings; and you will know that I Jehovah am your Savior and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

Isa 60:17  For bronze I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver; and for wood I will bring bronze, and for stones, iron. I will also make your overseers to be peace, and your rulers to be righteousness.

Isa 60:18  Violence will no more be heard in your land, wasting nor ruin within your borders; but you will call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.

Isa 60:19  The sun will no more be your light by day; nor the brightness of the moon give light to you; but Jehovah will be to you for everlasting light, and your God your glory.

Isa 60:20  Your sun will no more go down, nor your moon withdraw; for Jehovah will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be ended.

Isa 60:21  Your people also will all be righteous; they will inherit the land forever, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, so that I may be glorified.

Isa 60:22  A little one will become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I Jehovah will hasten it in its time.

Israel did not bring the Torah to the Nations. They did not teach them the Laws of Yehovah. They did not become that light to the nations that they claimed they were. Now Yehovah is taking away His protection and His blessings that He gave them and this is happening right before our very eyes.

Jer 7:22  For I did not speak to your fathers, nor command them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.

Jer 7:23  But I commanded them this thing, saying, Obey My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people; and walk in all the ways that I have commanded you, so that it may be well with you.

Jer 7:24  But they did not listen, nor bow their ear, but walked in their own plans, in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward.

Jer 7:25  Since the day that your fathers came out of the land of Egypt until this day I have even sent to you all My servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending.

Jer 7:26  Yet they did not listen to Me, nor bow down their ear, but hardened their neck. They did worse than their fathers.

Jer 7:27  So you shall speak all these words to them, but they will not listen to you; you shall also call to them, but they will not answer you.

Jer 7:28  But you shall say to them, This is a nation which does not obey the voice of Jehovah their God, nor receives instruction; truth has perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

Jer 7:29  Cut off your hair and throw it away, and take up a weeping on the high places. For Jehovah has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.

Jer 6:16  So says Jehovah, Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where the good way is, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it.

Jer 6:17  Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Listen to the sound of the ram’s horn. But they said, We will not listen.

Jer 6:18  Therefore hear, nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.

Jer 6:19  Hear, O earth; behold, I will bring evil on this people, the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not listened to My Words, nor to My Law, but have rejected it.

Jer 6:20  Why does frankincense come to Me from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? Your burnt offerings are not pleasing, nor your sacrifices sweet to Me.

Let me close with one more verse from Isaiah. Yehovah is going to take those from the coastlands and is going to use them to bring back Israel. And when He does this He will then take those from the coastlands and make them a priest and levitical priests. Have you ever heard of anyone having this honour?

Isa 66:18  For I know their works and their thoughts; it comes to gather all the nations and the tongues; and they will come and see My glory.

Isa 66:19  And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those who escape from them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, drawers of the bow; to Tubal, and Javan, to the far away coasts that have not heard My fame, nor have seen My glory. And they will declare My glory among the nations.

Isa 66:20  And they will bring all your brothers for an offering to Jehovah out of all nations on horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and on mules, and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem, says Jehovah, as the sons of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of Jehovah.

Isa 66:21  And I will also take some of them for priests and for Levites, says Jehovah.

Isa 66:22  For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make stand before Me, says Jehovah, so will your seed and your name stand.

Conclusions

We started off with our daily prayer.

Sim Shalom

Grant peace, goodness, blessing, grace, kindness, and compassion upon us and upon all of Your people Israel. Bless us, our Father, all of us as one, with the light of Your face, for with the light of Your face You gave to us, Yehovah our God, the Torah of life and love of kindness, righteousness, blessing, compassion, life, and peace. And may it be good in Your eyes to bless Your people Israel at every time and at every hour with Your peace. Blessed art You, Yehovah, Who blesses His people Israel with peace.

With the light of His face, He gave us the Torah.

Pro 6:20 My son, keep your father’s commandments, and do not forsake the law of your mother;

Pro 6:21 bind them upon your heart forever, tie them around your neck.

Pro 6:22 When you go, it shall lead you; when you sleep, it shall keep you; and when you awake, it shall talk with you.

Pro 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life;

The commandments and the Torah are light.

Isa 60:2  For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah shall rise on you, and His glory shall be seen on you.

Isa 60:3  And the nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawning.

When we keep the Torah, when we obey and teach others to obey the commandments, they make us shine, and they reflect the glory of Yehovah through us.

I was wanting to teach you about the riots and why Israel was being destroyed. Instead, Yehovah led me to teach you about the Philippines in these last days once again. At the same time as we are working hard to create a foundation and corporation to handle the legal duties involved going forward. We need your help. We need your skills.

You have proven the Jubilee Cycles to be correct and that we are now in the 120th one. You have proven the 70 weeks of Daniel to be talking about 70 Jubilee cycles from the time of Moses being told by Yehovah to go and get the people. And you know that the middle of this 70th Jubilee cycle is the year 2020. You have seen this Pandemic being declared on Passover. You have seen the UN warn of biblical famines just before Shavuot and on May 31st you have seen what could be the start of wars in the USA. You have also seen biblical size locust spread across east African Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and China. You have seen the most powerful economy in the world shattered in a matter of days by the plague. It is going to take years to recover from this great depression. The only thing you have not yet seen is the Middle East attack Europe and Europe to invade and destroy the Middle East and then the USA.

Though it lingers, wait for it; because it will surely come. It will not tarry.”

    Wonderful newsletter Joe and very encouraging Scripture regarding the Philippines. I don’t often look at Gamatria, but decided to do so today for the name “Sheba”, which is the Philippines today.

    Sheba is Shin (300) Bet (2) Aleph (1) = 303.
    Sheba has TWO three’s in it and whether it be 3, 30, 300, or 3000, numbers mean things. They reveal patterns.

    Here is Scripture with the number 300 in it. Is it relevant towards our future in the Philippines? I don’t know, but it is very encouraging. I found it interesting regarding the gold and silver since gold is in Sheba and the 300 people found suitable to send into war with Gideon.

    Gen_5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

    Gen_5:23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

    Gen_6:15 And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.

    Num_26:25 These are the families of Issachar according to those that were numbered of them, threescore and four thousand and three hundred.

    Num_31:36 And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred sheep:

    Jdg_7:6 And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.

    Jdg_7:7 And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the other people go every man unto his place.

    Jdg_7:8 So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all the rest of Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley.

    Jdg_7:16 And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man’s hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers.

    Jdg_7:22 And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man’s sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, and to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath.

    1Sa_11:8 And when he numbered them in Bezek, the children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand.

    2Sa_2:31 But the servants of David had smitten of Benjamin, and of Abner’s men, so that three hundred and threescore men died.

    1Ki_5:16 Beside the chief of Solomon’s officers which were over the work, three thousand and three hundred, which ruled over the people that wrought in the work.

    1Ki_10:17 And he made three hundred shields of beaten gold; three pound of gold went to one shield: and the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon.

    2Ch_9:16 And three hundred shields made he of beaten gold: three hundred shekels of gold went to one shield. And the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon.

    2Ch_17:14 And these are the numbers of them according to the house of their fathers: Of Judah, the captains of thousands; Adnah the chief, and with him mighty men of valour three hundred thousand.

    2Ch_25:5 Moreover Amaziah gathered Judah together, and made them captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, according to the houses of their fathers, throughout all Judah and Benjamin: and he numbered them from twenty years old and above, and found them three hundred thousand choice men, able to go forth to war, that could handle spear and shield.

    2Ch_26:13 And under their hand was an army, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred, that made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy.

    Eze_4:5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.

    Dan_8:14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

    Joh_12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?

    Jan…in our Hebrew the gimel is number 3 ..it is formed by the leaning Vav ( the number for man..the connection between earth and Yehovah) ..and is supported by the Yud..symbolic of Yehovah’s hand….the gimel Is known as associated with ‘burden’….but it is Yehovah that bears the burden….for man…YEHOVAH is our strong support. So in each of these verses you’ve cited…we see the Hand of YHVH …our support ….thanks for all the references

    Shalom brother Joseph, I have a question for you. Let me first say, I can agree with the premise that the Philippines may be the coastlands and the land of the queen of Sheba. I can see that people’s will come from those places to Israel proper at some later point. Many have tried to flee to Israel to bypass the troubles ahead, most have failed at that endeavor. Now my question; where are the verses that say we are to actively flee by our own strength to these ‘coastlands’ ?

    Reply
    • Joseph F. Dumond

      Good question.
      Isa 60:9 Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of Jehovah your God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because He has glorified you.
      The word wait is H6960 (Strong)

      קָוָה

      qâvâh

      kaw-vaw’

      A primitive root; to bind together (perhaps by twisting), that is, collect; (figuratively) to expect: – gather (together), look, patiently, tarry, wait (for, on, upon).

      If they are waiting then there is an expectation that someone is going to bring it to them.

      We are told the same thing in Isaiah 42:4 (MKJV)

      4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged until He has set judgment in the earth; and the coasts shall wait for His Law.

      We are also told in Psalms that the Philippines will come bearing gifts.
      Psa 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents; the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
      And you have already read in the teaching how they will bring back the nation of Israel to the land.

      We are also told Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter into your rooms and shut your doors around you; hide for a little moment, until the fury has passed by.

      Our Father is warning us that He is about to go ape. That is He is about to become FURIOUS.

      Lev 26:27 And if you will not for all of this listen to Me, but will walk contrary to Me,
      Lev 26:28 then I will walk contrary to you also in fury. And I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
      Lev 26:29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you shall eat.

      SO we can help bring the Torah to the whole nation and all of Asia through the Philippines. We would be out of the line of fire as Ephraim and Manasseh along with the other Israelite nations are being punished. And we could be part of those who gathered and brought back to the land of Israel in 2030.

      This is a very big decision. Do I risk staying and dealing with the problems of war at home? Do I go and deal with being a refugee in a foreign country? And have I really understood these things correctly?

        An honest answer, thank you. I have the same questions. I pray that we will each understand the path we are to follow. Shalom

    I am sorry but not all God’s people will be making their way to the Philippines. It’s just not a practical reality as of June 2020.

    Maybe in 2026.

    So those Scriptures are simply guiding us as to what will happen NOT pointing us to up and move.

    The two witnesses are Judah and Israel.
