Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-029
25th day of the sixth month 5843 after creation
September 8, 2007
Shabbat Shalom Brethren,
1] This weeks news and the price of wheat
2] One group is now going to keep the Sabbath year of rest.
3] The Mark of Yahweh, and why all these past News letters are important.
1] A couple of weeks ago I told you about the wretched conditions of my poor garden. Some of you offered to give me your tomatoes which you have been watering. This was very kind.
On the News this week it was said that this summer in Southern Ontario, was the driest on record for the past 50 years. This same day we learned that a second Hurricane called Felix had reached category 5 status and was going to hit Central America. This is the first time we have had two category 5 hurricanes in the same year hit land.
This same day on the news it was also reported that India had purchased a huge amount of wheat, while Russia was considering banning exports of its wheat. Because of these two events on top of North Americas wheat production dropping 20 percent this year from drought and floods, the price of bread and wheat products was going up significantly.
I cant help but think of Revelation 6: 5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. 7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
The other scripture which came to mind as I heard these news reports was Revelation 7: 1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
Brethren, in the Jubilee article Times Up, Yahweh is showing you that the next curse which follows this one we are now in, is going to have hunger and a shortage of food, which causes the animals to attack us as they are looking for food as well. This is also the time of pestilences. This the curse that tells us our children will be taken and the streets empty because of this plague.
This will take over one quarter of the earth. That is one and one half billion people will die over the next seven years starting in 2009. Pray that I am wrong, repent if you will, but pray none the less.
There is a train wreck coming, and all of us on this train are going to get hurt unless we all repent and change. That is begin to obey Yahweh.
To read more on this grain shortage from an investors point of view please go to the forum and click on the second curse and read the latest articles on page three.
2] Yahwehs Philadelphia truth congregation has announced they are going to be keeping the Sabbatical year of rest as a group. This is great news. Two years ago I was talking to them and they were going to keep in touch, as they searched out this subject. But they did not. I have written them a number of times to see what conclusions they have come up with. Again not replies.
They have for some unknown reason decided to keep 2008 as the year of Rest. I have contacted them but they are not responding to my inquires. They give no biblical references for this time.
But I am thrilled to read they are going to keep the land rest as a group. They have some rules which I like for the most part.
If you have contact with this group please ask the elders to contact me, so we can discuss the year that the bible states is the Jubilee and Sabbatical year. You can not pick Sunday or Friday as the Sabbath when Yahweh says to keep the seventh day as the Sabbath. Same way you can not just choose any year as the Sabbatical year, when Yahweh Himself tells us which year is the actual year. See the article Times Up about the Jubilee. https://sightedmoon-archives.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=53
You can read the article from Yahwehs Philadelphia Truth Congregation at http://yahstruth.org/Newsletters/200709.php scroll down to the title Sabbatical Year 2007-2008.
At least now another group believes the Land rest years are important enough to keep them. This is great news. Some fine tuning on the other points, in time. May Yahweh bless them and all those who are keeping His Commandments.
3] I have been in your face concerning the sighted moon and the postponements and calendar issues. Some have been offended at my confrontational stance.
Others have not bothered to look, believing they already know it all. Some believe that because it did not come from head quarters it can not be true. After all they would not lead us astray. How can a dumb ditch digger know anything?
I bite my tongue!
The reason I want you all to understand the seriousness of this subject is because of the things I will now show you.
Many say that they will keep doing as they have always done and when the Messiah returns, He will tell us what one to follow and they want to let Him sort it out.
Can you, who keep the Sabbath, imagine what that sounds like if we were talking about the Sabbath and Sunday?
We will not change from Sunday because we have always kept Sunday and the Pope would not lead us astray. When Jesus comes back he will sort it out and we will do what He says then.
Of course that is ridiculous. We do our home work and each of us has proven that the Sabbath is Saturday and we now keep it as the weekly Holy Day. I do hope you have that same attitude when it comes to the calendar. That is, that you will do your home work and prove the things I say here right or wrong. That you will take them to your pastor and ask him to explain these things.
You may say – What is the difference? You are trying to obey Yahweh and that is what counts. Those who keep Sunday say the same thing. Is there a difference?
Yahweh says yes there is.
Leviticus 23:2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.
23 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’ ” 26 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 27 “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. 28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. 29 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. 30 And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 32 It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your Sabbath.”
Take special note of verse . 29 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. 30 And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.
Yahweh will cut you off if you are not afflicted on that day, and if you work on that day He shall destroy you.
Is it important to Yahweh that we keep this Holy Day? Yes! Is it also just as important to know when to keep that Holy Day? Again, you know the answer.
In the article The Mark of the Beast I show you exactly what that mark is, by showing you what Yahwehs mark is. You can read the whole article at https://sightedmoon-archives.com/sightedmoon_2015/?page_id=17
I will go straight to the point here today, assuming you will have read or will soon read that article.
In Revelation 13 we are told of another beast that causes the world to receive a mark on its hand and forehead; 11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
This other beast to me sounds like another church organization. The False Church. This church causes the mark to be on the hand and on the forehead.
In order to know what that mark is that they are going to have, we can find out only when we know what the mark of Yahweh is. This will remove all those who speculate as to what this mark of the beast is. This mark of Yahweh is described in the scriptures as follows.
We read in Exodus 13:1-10 -1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Consecrate to Me all the firstborn, whatever opens the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and beast; it is Mine.” 3 And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the Lord brought you out of this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten. 4 On this day you are going out, in the month Abib. 5 And it shall be, when the Lord brings you into the land of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, which He swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, that you shall keep this service in this month. 6 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a feast to the Lord. 7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days. And no leavened bread shall be seen among you, nor shall leaven be seen among you in all your quarters. 8 And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, â€˜This is done because of what the Lord did for me when I came up from Egypt.â€™ 9 It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that the Lordâ€™s law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the Lord has brought you out of Egypt. 10 You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
Here we have a sign that would be on our hand and a memorial in our forehead (between our eyes). What is that sign? It was the keeping of Passover in chapter 12 and here in chapter 13. It is the keeping of the days of Unleavened Bread. A sign that we are to keep from year to year.
Exodus 31:12-18 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: â€˜Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.â€™ ” 18 And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.
Deuteronomy 6:1 – “Now this is the commandment, and these are the statutes and judgments which the Lord your God has commanded to teach you, that you may observe them in the land which you are crossing over to possess, 2 that you may fear the Lord your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you, you and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged. 3 Therefore hear, O Israel, and be careful to observe it, that it may be well with you, and that you may multiply greatly as the Lord God of your fathers has promised you a land flowing with milk and honey. 4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the door posts of your house and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 11:1 – “Therefore you shall love the Lord your God, and keep His charge, His statutes, His judgments, and His commandments alwaysâ€¦â€¦â€¦.18 “Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 19 You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 20 And you shall write them on the door posts of your house and on your gates, 21 that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth. 22 “For if you carefully keep all these commandments which I command you to doâ€“to love the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Himâ€“ 23 then the Lord will drive out all these nations from before you, and you will dispossess greater and mightier nations than yourselves. 24 Every place on which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea, shall be your territory. 25 No man shall be able to stand against you; the Lord your God will put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, just as He has said to you.
Ezekiel 20:10-26 “Therefore I made them go out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness. 11 And I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments, â€˜which, if a man does, he shall live by them.â€˜12 Moreover I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, that they might know that I am the Lord who sanctifies them. 13 Yet the house of Israel rebelled against Me in the wilderness; they did not walk in My statutes; they despised My judgments, â€˜which, if a man does, he shall live by themâ€™; and they greatly defiled My Sabbaths. Then I said I would pour out My fury on them in the wilderness, to consume them. 14 But I acted for My nameâ€™s sake, that it should not be profaned before the Gentiles, in whose sight I had brought them out. 15 So I also raised My hand in an oath to them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, â€˜flowing with milk and honey, the glory of all lands, 16 because they despised My judgments and did not walk in My statutes, but profaned My Sabbaths; for their heart went after their idols. 17 Nevertheless My eye spared them from destruction. I did not make an end of them in the wilderness. 18 “But I said to their children in the wilderness, â€˜Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, nor observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols. 19 I am the Lord your God: Walk in My statutes, keep My judgments, and do them; 20 hallow My Sabbaths, and they will be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the Lord your God.â€™ 21 Notwithstanding, the children rebelled against Me; they did not walk in My statutes, and were not careful to observe My judgments, â€˜which, if a man does, he shall live by themâ€™; but they profaned My Sabbaths. Then I said I would pour out My fury on them and fulfill My anger against them in the wilderness. 22 Nevertheless I withdrew My hand and acted for My nameâ€™s sake, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the Gentiles, in whose sight I had brought them out. 23 Also I raised My hand in an oath to those in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the Gentiles and disperse them throughout the countries, 24 because they had not executed My judgments, but had despised My statutes, profaned My Sabbaths, and their eyes were fixed on their fathersâ€™ idols. 25 Therefore I also gave them up to statutes that were not good, and judgments by which they could not live; 26 and I pronounced them unclean because of their ritual gifts, in that they caused all their firstborn to pass through the fire, that I might make them desolate and that they might know that I am the Lord.” â€˜
With the preceding verses, we can easily see that the mark of Yahweh is the keeping of his laws, Sabbaths and Holy Days. Take note it is Sabbaths plural not just one. When we keep them they become a sign on our Hand and a Sign between our Eyes, or in our mind, which is also on our heart. â€˜The handâ€™ signifies the way we live-our way of life, the way we work or conduct ourselves. â€˜Between our eyesâ€™ signifies the way we think and how we will treat others. It is our heart, our innermost being, our thoughts.
Those who will not keep the laws and Sabbaths of Yahweh, have the mark of the beast as a sign on their hands and on their foreheads. It is rebelliousness or hardening of the heart.
Read this in the following verses. Re 7:3 – saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
Re 9:4 – They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads.
Re 13:16 – He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
Re 14:1 – Then I looked, and behold, a* Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Fatherâ€™s name written on their foreheads.
Re 20:4 – And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
Re 22:4 – They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.
2 Thessalonians 2:1 – Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.
3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Notice here in Thessalonians that the mystery of lawlessness (not keeping Yahwehâ€™s Laws) is at work. The lawless one is Satan performing signs and lying wonders, unrighteous deceptions on those who would not love the truth of Yahweh and keep his laws. On them Yahweh will send strong delusion that they should continue to believe a lie.
What Lie? Satan is the father of all lies.
Joh 8:44 -You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
If you are not keeping the commandments then you are a liar if you also say you obey Yahweh. 1John 2:4 – He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Now, what is the mark of the beast? I have clearly shown you using scriptures that the mark of Yahweh is the keeping of His weekly Sabbath and of keeping His annual Sabbaths at their correctly appointed times, and how it is on our HAND and BETWEEN OUR EYES or on our foreheads. So you pretty much know what I am going to say is the mark of the beast. But I needed to prove it to you without leaving any wiggle room to doubt.
The mark of the beast are those who hold as truth the keeping of any and all days as holy which are not ordained by Yahweh.
First Satan causes the world to worship on the wrong day. Any day but the true day. With this he has fooled most of the world.
To those who actually read the bible, he fools them, by confusing which day is the true days of worship. He changes the calendar so that Yahwehs children who do not check will also be mislead. This is done by worshiping on the wrong days.
Does this surprise you? It should not, as Daniel said it would happen in 7:25
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
The times are the calendar issues and the law is the Ten Commandments, and in particular the fourth one. Keep Holy The Sabbath Day. This commandment also is expanded in Leviticus 23, which tell us the annual Holy Days.
Until Satan is taken away people are going to be deceived. Until the postponement rules are put away people are going to be deceived. Until the world starts to keep the true Holy Days they will willingly be deceived.
If you do not keep the Sabbath, if you do not keep the Holy Days at the appointed times, or if you keep those holy days by postponing them, then you have the mark of the beast on your hand and between you eyes on your forehead.
If you keep the Sabbath and treat it as Holy Time and not work on it, if you keep the Day of Atonement on the day of Atonement and fast and do not eat, you will not be cut off from amongst your people as the scriptures say you will if you do not keep these days Holy.
If you say these things are not important and you will continue to do as you have always done. Then the truth is not in you and you do not know the Father and you are a liar after Satan.
Do you want to take that chance and be CUT OFF for not keeping the day of Atonement on the correct day? Do you really want Yahweh to destroy you?
The question is what will you do? To continue to be an ostrich only exposes your flank.
To those of you who hold fast to the teachings of the rabbis let me share this most inspired letter. It was written some time ago, yet it is right on the money in many ways. http://tsiyon.org/Tsiyon_to_FFOZ.pdf
