Shabbat Zoom Meeting
There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our youtube channel.
We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.
We start off with some music and then some prayers and its as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.
Sabbath April 24, 2021, will be at 1PM Eastern for our afternoon service.
We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.
Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Septennial Torah Portion
If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 5th year which is the 5th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to April 24, 2021, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about
1 Samuel 22-24
If you missed last weeks exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.
New Video Teachings
Two Weeks ago on Friday April 9, 2021 we launched our Shavuot message created by the Espinosa Family on our Doodely channel. It did real well over that next week hitting 300 views. Then on the 15th and 16th of April we began to redo this same video in a number of languages.
I wanted to test the markets and see what other nationalities would be interested in those things we are teaching. I also know that many of you speak those other languages and can help share these videos and help Sightedmoon.com enter those other language markets.
Please click on this link for the English Video and share this with your Christian friends. This is the French Video you can share with those in Quebec, France, and various African nations. Here is the Italian Video and the Portuguese Video and the German Video and the Spanish Video and the Dutch Video and the Chinese Video.
We also began to redo some of our first videos in various languages, again in an effort to test the markets. But to get a good sense if anyone is interested, I need to get these videos into groups where the people in those groups speak that language. I need your help. If you can share these videos in groups that speak these languages then please do help spread the word.
A Major Monster Stirred Away
Two weeks ago, we also showed you the work we are involved in and supporting in East Africa and the Philippines. Just before Shavuot Henry told us that construction on the office building in Kenya had come to a stop due to the funds being used up. We have sent him more funds to help cover the cost to get the building done.
Brother Aike is also asking for more help to try and get the work done on the Torah School in Antipolo in the Philippines, before the rainy season, or Typhoon seasons gets going.
Last week the strongest Typhoon on record brushed by the Philippines during Shavuot. It had sustained winds of 190 MPH and had it hit the Philippines it would have covered the entire 7000 islands and would have been very close to Aikes area. We do thank those of you who knew and prayed. It stayed at sea with the outer bands hitting the eastern islands. But….
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center put Surigae’s peak 1-minute average winds at 190 mph, making it the strongest typhoon so early in the year,
Astonishingly, only four tropical cyclones worldwide have been *reliably measured* with higher 1-minute average wind speeds:
Hurricane Patricia (2016), 215 mph winds, 872 mb pressure. Made landfall in Mexico with 150 mph winds.
Please do take note just how big a disaster was avoided this past Shavuot. Each of the other three Typhoons, in the top four all hit the Philippines in the past with devastating results. I have added wiki links so you can see what each storm did.
Super Typhoon Goni (2020), 195 mph winds, 894 mb pressure. Made landfall in the Philippines with 195 mph winds.
Super Typhoon Haiyan (2013), 195 mph winds, 895 mb pressure. Made landfall in the Philippines with 190 mph winds.
Super Typhoon Meranti (2016), 195 mph winds, 890 mb pressure. Made landfall in the Philippines with 190 mph winds, then in China with 100 mph winds, killing 47 people.
What caused this Super Typhoon to change and go to the north?
When I was in the Philippines in 2015 and again in 2018, I told all those who heard me that they did not need to endure more of these catastrophes each and every year. They did not need to suffer through more devastating earthquakes and mud slides and floods. What they had to do was obey Yehovah. Period. Simple end of discussion.
Yehovah is angry. He is mad that after 6000 years mankind still does not and will not obey Him and keep the Sabbath and Holy Days and Shemitah year. Israel was supposed to teach the Torah to the Nations. They did not do that. In fact they even stopped keeping those commandments. Which now brings us to the end of this 6th Millennium. Israel is about to be punished severely. And then the rest of the world.
The bottom line is either we obey or we will suffer these extreme super cell storms all over the world. The world says they are caused by Global warming. By doing that they deny Yehovah.
Yehovah has demonstrated His power by sending this COVID-19. He warned you by sending SARS, MERS, H1N1, H1N5, and other scary plagues that never took off. But we did not listen nor repent. He then sent COVID and the world is being humbled. But still even though now over 3 million have died, the world does not repent. In fact many around the world are rejecting the Government mandates to stay home and to wear a mask to help stop the spread.
And many of you like the rest of the world are also rebelling against complying to these simple demands to help protect everyone else. And you still deny this is from Yehovah.
It has touched my own family and this week two families on our sightedmoon.com leadership team, have also been infected and come down with COVID.
So to answer my question, What Caused this Super Typhoon to change course?
In the past 300 years, the Philippines has been ruled and followed the Catholic Faith diligently believing that God was in the statues they worshiped. Disasters followed disasters. But now there are people who are starting to keep Torah. And more so they are keeping it at the proper time. I cannot help but ponder the disaster had they been keeping it at the wrong time. Yehovah may not have heard their prayers.
I was in Florida with my family at Sukkot when Hurricane Floyd was barreling down on the West coast of Florida. We were camped by the ocean on a lagoon with the Hurricane coming ashore that day at some point. We had rented an RV for Sukkot and were about 6 feet above sea level. At this time I had no idea how bad Hurricanes could be. Nor did I know anything about tidal surges. We were from Canada and I had never experienced a Hurricane. I just had no clue.
My wife would not come with me to the Conference center. There, 6000 Church of God Members prayed for God to stay the storm.
I know, I should not have left my wife. I should have vacated my family and headed inland to make them safe. I know, I know. But at this time I did not know. I was really that naïve about just how powerful a Hurricane was.
1Co 1:24 But to them, the called-out ones, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
1Co 1:25 Because the foolish thing of God is wiser than men, and the weak thing of God is stronger than men.
1Co 1:26 For you see your calling, brothers, that not many wise men according to the flesh are called, not many mighty, not many noble.
1Co 1:27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28 and God has chosen the base things of the world, and things which are despised, and things which are not, in order to bring to nothing things that are;
1Co 1:29 so that no flesh should glory in His presence.
1Co 1:30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption;
1Co 1:31 so that, according as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”
When we came out after services the sun was out. And before we left the Pastor told us how he had just gotten news the Hurricane had changed direction from going north towards us, and had turned towards southern Florida and then the next day came ashore and hit south of Miami.
Note the dates of the storm below and what it was doing. And compare them to the dates we were keeping Sukkot in St. Petersburg area at the same time. Sukkot 1987 was from October 7 to October 14. It was on the 12th that we all prayed and then it turned and went across to Miami.
A broad area of low pressure organized into a tropical depression off the coast of Nicaragua on October 9. After drifting to the southeast, it turned to the north-northwest and organized into a tropical storm on October 10. Subsequent to crossing western Cuba, Floyd accelerated to the northeast, and attained hurricane status late on October 12. It passed through the Florida Keys before entraining cooler, drier air from a stationary frontal boundary. Its convection became very disorganized, and Floyd weakened back to a tropical storm early on October 13 to the southeast of Miami;
I thought that was really cool. We prayed and the hurricane turned. I came back to the RV to tell my wife who was steaming, what just happened. She was not impressed. The Feast ended a couple days later and she had that long drive back to Canada to cool down. LOL. It was a quite drive home.
Then again in my desire to show my wife how we could keep the Feasts and travel which many times were during our anniversary of October 7, I would look for more exotic places to go. So in 1989, I picked out the Bahamas for the Feast in order to please her. Sukkot was from October 13, to October 20. We were at this time doing it according to the Hillel Calendar. But we went early so we could stay longer and enjoy ourselves by traveling around
Hurricane Hugo in 1989, was just going by the Bahamas. Again I had not idea what the dangers were. The clouds were menacingly dark and billowing on our first day there. Hugo was just going by us. Then I turned on the news and saw what happened when it hit South Carolina the next day. We had not prayed for protection. We had no clue. It would not be until Hurricane Katrina in 2005 that I was only being shown and understanding the finger of Yehovah and His anger at us.
He had kept me from danger even before I knew or really got to know Him and the timing of His moedim and Shmetah cycles.
The reason I shared this is to show you that Yehovah is the one who sends the severe winds. Notice this in Ezekiel;
Eze 13:6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, Jehovah says. And Jehovah has not sent them; but they hoped to confirm their word.
Eze 13:7 Did you not see a vain vision, and speak a lying divination? Yet you say, Jehovah says; although I have not spoken?
Eze 13:8 Therefore so says the Lord Jehovah: Because you have spoken vanity and seen a lie, therefore, behold, I am against you, says the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 13:9 And My hand shall be against the prophets who see vanity and who divine a lie. They shall not be in the council of My people, nor shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord Jehovah.
Eze 13:10 Because, even because they made My people go astray, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and he builds a wall, and lo, others daubed it with lime.
Eze 13:11 Say to those who daub with lime, yes, it shall fall; there will be a flooding rain; and you, O hailstones, shall fall, and a stormy wind will break.
Eze 13:12 And, behold, when the wall has fallen, shall it not be said to you, Where is the daubing with which you have daubed?
Eze 13:13 Therefore so says the Lord Jehovah: I will even break it with a stormy wind in My fury. And there shall be a flooding rain in My anger, and hailstones in fury to destroy it.
Eze 13:14 And I will break down the wall that you have daubed with lime, and touch it to the ground; yea, I will bare its base. And it shall fall, and you shall be destroyed in her midst; and you shall know that I am Jehovah.
Eze 13:15 And I will fulfill My wrath on the wall and on those who daubed it with lime. And I will say to you, The wall is no more; and, Those who daubed are no more;
Eze 13:16 the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, says Jehovah.
Yehovah is in control. HE also stilled the winds on the Sea of Galilee.
Rev 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth so that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
But we must obey. We must. It is that simple and that obvious.
Now look what was going on in the Philippines this past weekend when this Super Typhoon Surigae was threatening to come into the Philippines. You will see Dennis and our brethren passing out rice food and treats for Shavuot, that al of youl at Sightedmoon.com sent to them for a gift.
And this is just part of the work we are striving to do which all of you make possible by your support in what ever way you help us.
Give Thanks in all things for the protection Yehovah gives us whether we know it or not.
Last week I told you about the third wave of this pandemic that is now hitting many parts of the world.
India is now being overwhelmed with astounding new daily numbers of COVID. And here in Canada flights from India are still taking place. They are not being stopped.
The country of India has a population of 1.4 billion people and is now reporting over 250,000 new Covid-19 cases daily which experts worry may lead to the development of other variants of the virus that may go undetected until they spread into other countries.
While this plague continues to ravage the world, as this new variant starts to spread, more and more regular hospital operations such as heart attacks or regular procedures are forced to be dropped due to the critical lack of beds. This then will cause further deaths.
Right now the Indian variant is labeled B1.617 and is known as a Double Variant. It has come about as a result of combining the California Variant known as the L452R with the E844Q variant which is the one from the UK and it was similar to the one from South Africa known as the E484K.
The B.1.617 or “double mutant” Indian variant carries two mutations including the L452R and E484Q which have been seen separately before in other variants but never together in one variant.
The L425R mutation which has been spotted in fast-spreading variants in California can reportedly increase the binding power of the virus’ spike proteins with human cells, making it more transmissible and can also potentially increase viral replication.
The E484Q is reportedly similar to the E484K mutation found in the U.K. and South African variants of the coronavirus which have shown to lower the effectiveness of antibodies generated by a vaccine or a previous bout of Covid-19.
Experts in India have expressed concern about the purported high transmissibility of double mutant variant as almost 60%of all positive cases in India’s Covid-19 epicenter, Maharashtra, have been caused by the B.1.617 variant.
The concerning variant has now also been detected in several countries including the U.K., U.S., Israel, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and several others prompting travel bans and or advisories.
Israel on Tuesday registered eight cases caused by the Indian variant—mostly among people arriving from abroad—and reported that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine “has efficacy against it, albeit a reduced efficacy,” Reuters reported.
I know almost all of you have very biased and prejudiced views about what is going on today. Most of it derived from alternative news sources that know more about what is good for you than the scientific leaders we have trained up. I know many of you have been influenced by propaganda and today have great difficulty knowing or understanding facts when they are in front of you. I know you cannot trust any Government source as they are all out to depopulate the world.
Many of you will not and would not wear a mask to help stop the spread of COVID. Many of you would not and will not get a vaccine shot to help stop the spread of COVID. Many of you protest and scream bloody murder when you are told to stay home and the economy is shut down to help stop the spread of COVID.
And because I do not agree with those anti-vaccers I am attacked and harassed for having my own opinion.
So here are the results of those countries who went hard against this plague and are now opening up their economies and borders, while almost all other countries continue to fail to defeat this plague. Please do not sound off, before you stop and think about what they have done successfully.
Israel may have achieved herd immunity against Covid-19
By Abigail Klein Leichman APRIL 7, 2021, 2:13 PM
With 56% of citizens vaccinated and another 15% recovered, Israel may be the first country where people who are immune protect those who aren’t.
Israel may have reached herd immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, say experts from its largest hospital, Sheba Medical Center.
Herd immunity happens when a sufficient percentage of a population has immunity – through vaccination or having recovered from the disease — and gives indirect protection to those who aren’t immune.
The immunity level needed for herd immunity is calculated based on the transmission rate of the virus. For SARS-CoV-2 it’s estimated at 65-70 percent, says Dr. Eyal Leshem, director of Sheba’s Institute for Travel & Tropical Medicine.
Approximately 56% of Israel’s 9.2 million citizens are vaccinated and another 15% (approximately 700,000 people) recovered from Covid-19, putting Israel comfortably in the expected herd immunity range.
“We’re seeing a decline in the number of cases now despite the return to mass gatherings and schools following the third lockdown, because most of the people the infected person will meet are immune by now,” Leshem tells ISRAEL21c.
“Compared with the last two lockdowns, after which we saw an increase in cases, we see a decline even after lockdown.”
Could emerging variants of the virus affect Israel’s presumed herd immunity?
“We don’t know yet,” Leshem says. “From what we know, the Pfizer vaccine is quite effective against different variants in prevention of disease and prevention of infection, though it may be slightly less effective against the South African variant, at least in the lab.”
Currently, Israel’s borders are closed to non-citizens except for first-degree relatives of citizens.
When general tourism resumes, says Leshem, “Israel is expected to be a very safe place for travelers because of our lower risk of transmission. The CDC and other public health agencies think that for fully vaccinated people travel is a very low risk especially if they have a PCR test before boarding the plane.”
He says that resuming travel with precautions is “a reasonable risk-benefit balance, provided people are vaccinated or get tested before and after travel and maintain quarantine.”
Leshem says the real challenge is children and adults who are unvaccinated. The vaccine has only been given to people 16 and older. Vaccinations in the 12- to 15 age range are to begin in a few months in Israel, following Pfizer clinical studies in that population.
“There are no magic tricks here,” says Leshem. “If unvaccinated people travel without full quarantine and testing, we will increase the risk of reintroducing the disease to Israel.”
Australia and New Zealand to start quarantine-free travel
Published 6 April
Australian and New Zealand residents will be able to travel between the two nations without having to quarantine from 19 April.
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the move on Tuesday.
Since October, New Zealand travelers have been allowed to enter most Australian states without quarantine, though this had not been reciprocated.
Both nations have since contained Covid outbreaks and kept infection rates near zero.
The countries shut their borders in March last year and brought in compulsory quarantine for returning nationals.
When outbreaks have emerged, both Australia and New Zealand have instated snap lockdowns to halt the virus from spreading.
Ms Ardern praised such aggressive responses as key to opening the travel bubble.
“I cannot see or point to any countries in the world that are maintaining a strategy of keeping their countries completely Covid-free, whilst opening up to international travel between each other,” she said.
“That means that, in a way, you know, we are world-leading.”
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison welcomed Ms Ardern’s decision, while noting that his country’s border had been open to New Zealanders for close to six months already.
“We have ensured that both our countries have… not suffered the same types of virus impacts that we have seen in so many other countries,” he said.
“The fact that we can now combine again will mean more jobs, will mean people reunited.”
Australia has recorded 909 deaths since the pandemic began, while New Zealand has reported 25.
Here in Canada, the major concern is that hospitals are now being over run with COVID cases. Staff are maxed out and stressed to the limit. Some are now deciding which people are treated and which are left to fend for themselves. We are at a critical point here.
The Sabbatical Years
We have been covering the Sabbath and the Holy Days and how to know when to keep them. It is of the utmost importance that you understand these basic commands as they reveal the plan of Yehovah to those who obey. They reveal the heart of Yehovah to those who obey and keep them. It is how you get to Know Him and this is the very thing He says to the foolish virgins. I never Knew you.
Rom 2:12 For as many as sinned without Law will also perish without Law. And as many as have sinned within Law shall be judged through Law.
Rom 2:13 For it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified.
Rom 2:14 For when the nations, who do not have the Law, do by nature the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law unto themselves;
It is the doers of the law that will be justified.
Even those people and nations who say you shall not kill or you shall not steal or you shall not commit adultery admit to the whole law because they keep this part of the law which they would not have known about except for the 10 commandments. And as such will be judge according to the whole law because they have only kept part of it.
But these people and these nations refuse to keep the Sabbath and the Holy Days and the Sabbatical & Jubilee Years. All of this is part of the 4th commandment.
Exo 31:13 Speak also to the sons of Israel, saying, Truly you shall keep My sabbaths. For it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I am Jehovah who sanctifies you.
By keeping the Sabbath, by keeping the Holy Days at the proper time, and by keeping the Sabbatical and Jubilee Years, we put a sign upon us. This sign says we are His. It is a sign between Yehovah and us. In the same way gangs wear bandanas of various colours to show what gang they are from, we have the Sabbath as our sign that we belong to the Yehovah Gang.
By doing this He will fight for us.
Eze 20:12And also I gave them My sabbaths to be a sign between Me and them, that they might know that I am Jehovah who sets them apart.
Eze 20:13But the house of Israel rebelled against Me in the wilderness; they did not walk in My statutes, and they despised My judgments, which if a man does, he shall even live in them. And they greatly profaned My sabbaths. And I said, I will pour out My fury on them in the wilderness to destroy them.
Eze 20:14 But I worked for My name’s sake, so that it should not be profaned before the nations in whose sight I brought them out.
Eze 20:15 And also I lifted up My hand to them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey; it is the glory of all lands;
Eze 20:16 because they despised My judgments and walked not in My sabbaths; and they profaned My sabbaths; for their heart went after their idols.
Eze 20:17 But My eye spared them from destroying them, nor did I make an end of them in the wilderness.
Eze 20:18 But I said to their sons in the wilderness, Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, nor observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols.
Eze 20:19 I am Jehovah your God. Walk in My statutes, and keep My judgments, and do them,
Eze 20:20 and keep My sabbaths holy; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am Jehovah your God.
Eze 20:21 But the sons rebelled against Me. They did not walk in My statutes, nor kept My judgments to do them; the judgments which, if a man do, he shall even live in them; they profaned My sabbaths and I said I would pour out My fury on them, to fulfill My anger against them in the wilderness.
Eze 20:22 But I withdrew My hand and worked for My name’s sake, that it should not be profaned in the eyes of the nations, from whom I brought them out in their eyes.
Eze 20:23 I also lifted up My hand to them in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the nations and scatter them through the lands,
Eze 20:24 because they had not done My judgments, but had despised My sabbaths and had profaned My sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers’ idols.
The Sabbaths are our special sign between us and Yehovah. Each of us needs to grab on to this and hold on to it for all we are worth. It is special and it is priceless.
Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being priest to Me. Since you have forgotten the Law of your God, I will also forget your sons, even I.
When we do not keep these Sabbaths, we loose knowledge of His ways and of Him. And as you know our society today, out of which all of us have come, rejects this knowledge. And because of this our Children and the children of our nations are going to be destroyed unless they repent and turn back to Yehovah.
Now that you understand and have read how the Sabbath, which includes the Holy Days at the proper time and the Sabbatical Years at the proper time, are the Mark of Yehovah upon us, then you should be able to understand exactly what is the Mark of Satan which the Bible speaks about.
Many have come up with all sorts of amazing and stupid ideas as to what this mark is.
Rev 13:12 And it exercises all the authority of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and those dwelling in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev 13:13 And it does great wonders, so that it makes fire come down from the heaven onto the earth in the sight of men.
Rev 13:14 And it deceives those dwelling on the earth, because of the miracles which were given to it to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth that they should make an image to the beast who had the wound by a sword and lived.
Rev 13:15 And there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might both speak, and might cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Rev 13:16 And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads,
Rev 13:17 even that not any might buy or sell except those having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name.
Rev 13:18 Here is the wisdom. Let him having reason count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. And its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
Just stop and think. What does the mark on your right hand mean? It is what you use to earn a living. It is how you live. Satans mark is to work on every day. Satan mark is to rest on any day BUT the Sabbath. Yehovah mark is for you to cease work on the Sabbath. To have your hand rest.
The Mark on your head…. is to have you thinking and doing things that keep you preoccupied Anything but study the word of Yehovah. Yehovah says to let your head rest and learn about Him on the Sabbath. Not to be gossiping, or planning for work or spending your time involved in sports events. Satan wants you to do all of these and more so you do not have time to think about Yehovah.
The Mark of the Beast, of Satan is to keep any other day holy other than those days Yehovah has said to keep Holy. You can also go and read our article on the Bismillah which is also another way of understanding this mark of Satan.
Scroll down in our article on The Bismillah which we cannot post are we risk being removed from facebook, until you see the picture of Day 41 of counting the Omer. You can begin to read there about this mark of the beast. I do strongly urge you to know this article.
Dan 7:25 And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and plot to change times and laws. And they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and one-half time.
You have just read in Ezekiel how upset Yehovah was with Israel when they did not keep the Sabbaths while they were in the land. Ezekiel was part of the captivity that was taken by Babylon in 586 BC. Go and read all of Ezekiel 20 and understand the importance to this point. In Yehovah’s Eyes It IS HUGE.
Now read how ignorance of the Sabbatical years resulted in the whole nation of Judah being kicked out of the land and notice exactly for how long.
Jer 25:12 And it shall be, when seventy years are fulfilled I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, and the land of the Chaldeans, says Jehovah, for their iniquity, and I will make it an everlasting ruin.
Jer 29:10 For so says Jehovah, When according to My Word seventy years have been fulfilled for Babylon, I will visit you and confirm My good Word to you, to bring you back to this place.
2Ch 36:20 And the ones who had escaped from the sword he carried away to Babylon, where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia,
2Ch 36:21 to fulfill the Word of Jehovah in the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its sabbaths. All the days of the desolation it kept the sabbath, to the full measure of seventy years.
2Ch 36:22 And in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, so that the Word of Jehovah in the mouth of Jeremiah might be done, Jehovah stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also in writing, saying,
2Ch 36:23 So says Cyrus king of Persia, All the kingdoms of the earth have been given to me by Jehovah God. And He has commanded me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May Jehovah his God be with him, and let him go up.
Judah was removed from the land for not keeping the Sabbatical and Jubilee year 70 times. If you do the math this takes you all the way back to the time of David and if David did keep them, then it then takes you back to the time of the judges. This is stunning to understand that they did not keep the Sabbatical years for that length of time.
The captivity began in 609 BC and ended in 539 BC with the defeat of Babylon. Nehemia would not come back to begin restoration until after Ezra arrived in 458 and Nehemiah in 445 BC. The exact dates they came back is disputed. But we do know that the year they read the entire Torah was a 49th and a 50th year Jubilee.
Neh 8:1And all the people gathered themselves as one man into the street before the water gate. And they spoke to Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses, which Jehovah had commanded to Israel.
Neh 8:2And Ezra the priest brought the Law before the congregation, both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.
Neh 8:3And he read in it before the street in front of the Water Gate from the morning until noon, in front of the men and the women, and those who could understand. And the ears of all the people listened to the Book of the Law.
Neh 8:4And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood which they had made for the purpose. And beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam.
Neh 8:5And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was above all the people. And when he opened it, all the people stood up.
Neh 8:6And Ezra blessed Jehovah, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, amen, lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped Jehovah with their faces to the ground.
Neh 8:7And Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the Law. And the people were in their place.
Neh 8:8And they read in the Book of the Law of God, clearly. And they gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.
Neh 8:9And Nehemiah, the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who taught the people, said to all the people, This day isholy to Jehovah your God. Do not mourn or weep. For all the people wept when they heard the words of the Law.
Neh 8:10Then he said to them, Go eat the fat and drink the sweet, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared. For this day is holy to our LORD. And do not be sorry, for the joy of Jehovah is your strength.
Neh 8:11And the Levites quieted all the people, saying, Be quiet, for the day is holy. And do not be grieved.
Neh 8:12And all the people went to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great rejoicing, because they had understood the words which were declared to them.
Neh 8:13And on the second day the chief of the fathers of all the people, the priests, and the Levites, were gathered to Ezra the scribe, even to understand the words of the Law.
Neh 8:14And they found written in the Law which Jehovah had commanded by Moses, that the sons of Israel should dwell in booths in the feast of the seventh month,
Neh 8:15and that they should publish and proclaim in all their cities, and in Jerusalem, saying, Go forth to the mountain and bring olive branches and pine branches and myrtle branches and palm branches, and branches of thick trees, to make booths, as it is written.
Neh 8:16And the people went out and brought in, and made themselves booths, each one upon his roof, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the Water Gate, and in the street of the Gate of Ephraim.
Neh 8:17And all the congregation of those who had come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths. For since the days of Joshua the son of Nun until that day, the sons of Israel had not done so. And there was very great gladness.
Neh 8:18Also day by day, from the first day until the last day, he read in the Book of the Law of God. And they kept the feast seven days, and on the eighth was an assembly, according to the Law.
Did you see that. They had not done this since the time of the judges. This is the first time and yet they were given an opportunity back in 2 Kings to keep this Sabbatical year. I want you to read about this historic day. It is an extremely well documented day in history.

All renown archeologist and chronologists agree that the event took place in the year 701 BC.
Sennacherib’s Annals are the annals of the Assyrian king Sennacherib. They are found inscribed on a number of artifacts, and the final versions were found in three clay prisms inscribed with the same text: the Taylor Prism is in the British Museum, the Oriental Institute Prism in the Oriental Institute of Chicago, and the Jerusalem Prism is in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
The Taylor Prism is one of the earliest cuneiform artifacts analyzed in modern Assyriology, having been found a few years before the modern deciphering of cuneiform.
The annals themselves are notable for describing Sennacherib’s siege of Jerusalem during the reign of king Hezekiah. This event is recorded in several books contained in the Bible including Isaiah chapters 36 and 37; 2 Kings 18:17; 2 Chronicles 32:9. The invasion is mentioned by Herodotus, who does not refer to Judea and says the invasion ended at Pelusium on the edge of the Nile Delta.
This event took place in 701 BC. The Assyrian Emmu list of Kings authenticates this fact.
After the Assyrian king Sennacherib came to the throne in 705 B.C., he struggled to put down resistance to his and Assyrian rule. The peoples of Syria and Palestine had counted on Egyptian help to throw off the Assyrian yoke, but Sennacherib brought them all under control. In 701 B.C., he laid siege to Jerusalem, seat of the Kingdom of Judah, then ruled by King Hezekiah, who was confined “like a bird in a cage.”
Now consider what you now have in your possession.
2Ki 19:29 And this shall be a sign to you: you shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springs up of the same. And in the third year, sow and reap and plant vineyards and eat the fruits of them.
The year that Sennacherib comes against Jerusalem is the first year of 701 when Yehovah says to Hezekiah ” you shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves”
Yehovah then says “and in the second year that which springs up of the same.” the second year is the year 700 BC.
And then Yehovah says again, “And in the third year, sow and reap and plant vineyards and eat the fruits of them.”
The first year of 701 BC is the 49th year. the second year when they cannot plant or harvest is the Jubilee year of 700 BC. And the third year of 699 is the 2nd year of the Jubilee Cycle.
And with just this one scripture you can now count by 7 and land on every Sabbatical year through out history. And then by counting by 49 from the year 700 you can also land on every Jubilee year throughout history. This one verse reveals all of this to you, the bible student.
It is absolutely stunning when you consider it.
Knowing this one verse and understanding that the only other Jubilee year mentioned in the entire bible is in Lev 25:2. The one during Nehemia you do not know until you figure this all out.
Yes there are only two places in the entire bible that give you a date when the Jubilee years are. And you already know when the Sabbatical year are as disclosed in 2 Kings 19:29. With just that little bit of info, you should be able to figure out where we are in the 6 Millennial Days of Mankind.
But even if you can’t, I have done the work for you and you can study this in our book Remembering the Sabbatical year of 2016. Now you should have no excuse as to why you cannot keep the Sign that marks you as Yehovahs. You know when the weekly Sabbath is and you also now know when to keep the Holy Days according to the Barley being Aviv and the Crescent moon being sighted to begin the month. You have just over 1 years to get ready for the Sabbatical year which goes from Aviv 2023 to Aviv 2024. Yes we prove this in the book for you as well. Actually the MacCabees prove this for you.
So start to get ready. Start to plan how many meals you will need so that you do not harvest or plant during the Sabbatical year. And remember this is your sign on your head and on your right hand. It identifies you as Yehovahs. Don’t change your sign for a false one.
