Shabbat Shalom to the Royal Family of Yehovah,
Letting your Light Shine
Last week we wrote to you about the events going on in Burundi and our goal to set James up there for 6 months teaching across the entire country.
At the same time, I had also received an update about the evangelistic campaign Aike did in across the Philippines which Sightedmoon.com sponsored and promoted through various ad campaigns. But I did not want to add it to last weeks News Letter and have given its own place here.
What you are witnessing is the fact that despite a lack of funding we are going forward and doing the best we can with what we have. We are not a mega church rolling in the tithes of the parishioners that support that church. Who teach the law is done away but the only law from the Old Testament they keep is the law of tithing. Ironic isn’t it?
It is ironic how those who do away with the law, tithe faithfully to their false church and those who keep the law don’t tithe to anyone.
For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
We are indeed a small group.
There are billions who claim to be Catholics. Multiple Millions who claim to be Christian. Just a few million who keep the Sabbath and Holy Days. And from this group thousands who keep the Crescent moon to start the month and the Barley to begin the year. And we are scattered around the world.
Psalm 16:11 You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.
Isaiah 35:8 And there will be a highway called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not travel it, only those who walk in that Way–and fools will not stray onto it.
Matthew 7:13 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
A Tree and Its Fruit
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.
I Never Knew You
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
After Aikes report I am going to share with you a letter from someone you may not know nor of heard from before.
I meet people from all over the world and many yearn for groups they can attend and fellowship with. Some people have this, and others attend groups they do not agree with but enjoy the fellowship. Whenever I hear of people complaining about being alone in this walk I think of Mathew 5. I too am guilty of yearning for fellowship.
Mat 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
The time is coming when all of our lights will be gathered and placed in one spot. This will be during the Great Tribulation. But when all the lights are in one place in Moab during that Tribulation the rest of the world is in darkness and destroying each other.
This past Sabbath the crew I work with began to work Saturday. The men are all excited about getting the overtime pay. On Thursday and Friday, they all asked me why I would not be working on Saturday. I told them it was my Holy Day. The roughest and toughest of the whole group and the one I like the most, came up to me and asked me;
Does the bible not say Sunday is the Day of rest?
As briefly as possible and in terms, he could understand, I told him that the Catholic Church of which he belonged to was the one to change the day of rest from Saturday to Sunday in 328 C.E. And all churches today follow the Catholic lead on this. Jesus kept the Sabbath as did all the apostles. And this is also why I keep the Passover season and take off certain days then and why I take off certain days like I just did to go to Israel just a few weeks ago.
Again on Friday many of them commented that I would not be working because it was my day of rest. So I am being a light right here in my own work area and at home, as the neighbors, all see I do not cut the grass or do chores around the house on Saturdays.
Do notice that a light does not make any noise, but is seen by everyone. When that light is about to go out it begins to flicker and makes noises.
Work at being obedient to Yehovah. Let your light shine in that dark area of the world you live in. Let those who have no hope, see your hope and change their ways. Because soon your light will be taken out of the way and they will only have the darkness. So let your light shine while you can.
Here is Brother Aikes report from the Philippines
Update from the Philippines
October 18, 2018
Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila
Dear Sightedmoon brothers and sisters,
Finally, I had the time to write my latest report on the hectic one month Torah evangelistic missions last Sept. 3 to Oct. 1 in Mindanao Islands, Philippines, more specifically, Davao City and nearby cities. The Main mission was to encourage several new groups of believers to learn, understand and celebrate the Fall feasts of Leviticus 23 on their appointed times. Overall the mission was a success. The thought of expanding the message of pure Torah in an unconquered territory seems very exciting. You know, imbedded within man, is our inherent nature to conquer. Yes, man since long time ago love to conquer territories where it for a cause or benefit. But this time, its just a different avenue, mind you, what amazed until this very moment that, I have not known anyone in the Philippines yet that had a very successful Torah ministry. Quite a very challenging task, but because it’s YHVH plan and purpose, somehow this will be succeed in the end, if we just hold on and help and support each other. So, I’m forever thankful to YHVH, that he chose somehow for this very unique task of teaching the Torah to the filipinos in my country.
This reminds me of my pledge or vow before YHVH that I made at the temple wailing wall in Jerusalem In sukkot October 2006. After my periodic prayer and fasting, YHVH led to me to go to the Land of Israel in 2006 for two months (60 days). I felt a very strong sense that YHVH had a great plan for me, It’s just I wasn’t able to fully grasp the magnitude of it yet. This passion for Torah that YHVH had put in my heart never stops, just like our heartbeats that never stops. I remember my special prayer in the temple mount on Sukkot 2006, I told YHVH if he wants to learn, understand and teach Torah to my countrymen in the Philippines, He better make it easy on me or otherwise I will be discouraged.
Before I will tell you about the details of the successes that we have in recent Mindanao Torah missions , I would like to share with you my spiritual journey. You know, I was a typical Sunday keeping Christian back then for 13 Years in a conservative Pentecostal church in the Philippines whose international affiliation were in the United States of America. I wasn’t a pastor or a layman or Sunday school teacher, I was a plain Christian guy who is kinda serious with my spiritual walk. But after 13 years ( 1992-2005) in that particular Pentecostal church, one day on Sunday service, tears won’t flow from my eyes anymore. What I mean, after 13 years in one church, for the first time I felt, that I don’t feel blessed anymore. I had to leave and search for my next level of spirituality. So I move on to find another church. I’ll never forget one Sunday morning on this new church I’m into, I went to talk to one of the elders and ask if the church had a bible school, since I feel led to be more seriously studying the word of God back then. Then the church elder, ask me just one question “ he said, brother, how long have you been in this church, I said, about two months, the elder quickly replied and suggested that, I must return to the basic Sunday school. That answer leave me very disappointed about the system of that church. In my spirit, I wanted to sour high, but because of the traditional old system that the church had, it’s like I wanted to go to college and they suggested that I had to return to high school studies. Huh? Then a pastor friend of mine came to invite me to join their long prayer and fasting for ministers in another church. That time I had never fasted for more than one day. But because we were about 25 individuals. I went on rigorous fasting and praying for weeks and periodic intervals for days. I thought back then, for once in my life, I will try this thing called prayer and fasting. In August 2005 I was invited by a friend on my first erev shabbat. It was a small group of Christians lovers of Israel ( what they identify themselves) who meets every Friday night. I kinda like the idea, TGIF thank God its friday. Then after awhile the Holy Spirit led me to some websites on the internet that teaches Torah. I was kinda amazed about the new information that I’m learning about my faith connection with the the Land, the jewish people and the Hebrew Scritpures of Israel. I was kinda hooked on studying the bible for weeks and months, I was literally glued to my personal computer and just the studying the Scriptures on my own. For the first time in my life, this new experience of studying the bible from a Torah based perspective kinda revolutionizes my whole being. I had come to realized that I’m more spiritually productive seating on the computer learning the Scriptures from it’s original Hebraic context that sitting in the church for two hours watching other Christian leaders perform their duties. For the first time I had been learning to keep and observe the sabbath day holy by not working my secular job as a salesman and marketing guy. I stayed at home with my wife during shabbat and would had bible study with my loyal disciple, my wife. My wife, Florence got instantly healed from severe arthritis by forsaking the unclean diet the she used to love like eating shellfish and crabs. Then soon, I have come to learn about the (7) seven annual holy days of Leviticus 23. We would invite Christian friends to our home and prepare clean food and as usual me brother aike, would share and teach principles derived from the Torah. As weeks and months come along, more and more people are coming to our shabbat meeting at our home. Then, I was obliged to study more so I wont run out of topic to share. Little did I realized that, I had this gift of studying to teach the Word of God. Miraculously, since my first shabbat experienced in 2005, I had never missed a single sabbath day without me teaching and sharing the Word of God, more specifically the Holy Torah. Never not once for the record. I’m called by YHVH to keep his Sabbaths. In 2007 I started Messiah the Living Torah Center (MLTC) out of a vision that Yeshua was the Living Torah personified. He came to fulfill, live out, teach and show how us perfectly how to walked the Torah, the word of truth. You know I had problems with what they call “inferiority complex.” I wasn’t a shy person but I’m not a public person. I hate being the center of attention, that’s what I mean. My personality is, I’m not a people person, I’m not charismatic. But YHVH had gave me an obvious gift that you and I can do, that is the gift of reading, studying the Scriptures and share it to others. From week to week, month to month and year to year since august 2005, Torah study and keeping had become my lifestyle. This I’m forever grated and thankful to YHVH.
Like most of us who had studied the Torah for years, the more you study Torah the more you realized the little that you know. Huh ? In September 2015, I was introduced to Joseph Dumond of www.sightedmoon.com by sister corete buri, a filipina who lives in Bangkok, Thailand. Since 2013, I came across teachings in the internet about keeping the annual holidays based on the sightedmoon in Jerusalem, but I have never fully understand the technicalities of it.
During the fall feast of 2015 Joseph Dumond came to the Philippines and with him is the message of curses. Yes, Joseph is an expert in teaching the curses of Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28. LOL. What a message, If the filipino people will not obey YHVH by keeping His feasts, we will not be blessed! Back then I had never organized events outside of MLTC. It was a challenging task of bring Joseph Dumond to different venues. I fasted and prayed for three days because I don’t want to be a failure. Faith in YHVH is what keeps me going. But here’s the complete report and see what have transpired during a team up with me and Joseph Dumond in the fall feast events on 2015.
and here’s the the compete diary from what transpired on Joseph second trip to the Philippines in March till April 2018.
As you can clearly see, we didn’t manipulate these things to happen. Joseph and I did our best to reach out and declare YHVH’s message. You who contributed and financially donated to the ministerial work. And the results are obviously clear that there is an ongoing Torah revival and awakening in the Philippine Islands.
There’s not place that we went in the Philippines that didn’t bear fruits. Its all fruitful, as Joseph had told me, bringing people to Torah in the places we go, is just like shooting fish in with a barrel, can’t missed it. It’s just keep hitting it right.
Pastor Pike Group in Laguna and Cavite Provinces. Attendance in the feast of trumpets have doubled.
A signboard of the new Torah bible study center in Dasmarinas, Cavite where Ptr. Pike and I regularly teach.
For the first time people in Davao city are keeping the fall feast days 2018.
Davao city Intercessors Group keep the feast of Trumpets on Sept. 11, 2018 for the first time. The day the moon was sighted in Jerusalem. The Leader sis. Ema Yasa attended Joseph Dumond seminar last April 2018.
Davao City Camacop Church in Mintal province, celebrated Feast of Trumpets on Sept. 11, 2018 afternoon for the first time. The leaders decided to this every year from now on.
Camiguin church headed by Pastor Mark Yu, celebrated the Feast of Sukkot on Sept. 26, 2018 evening according to the sighted moon calendar.
General Santos City, headed by Ptr. Jonathan and Imelda Gawan celebrated the Feast of Sukkot on Sept. 27, 2018. They Decided to do this every year from then on. Halleluyah !
Holy mountain ecumenical movement, group of catholics, evangelical protestants and muslim alike who gathers themselves by the tens of thousands on this mountain. I have influence the leader initially and see to it that the feasts will be celebrated in this Christian-muslim area in Mlang south Cotabato province.
We have initially launch our Torah learning radio program in Davao Del sur.
Watch it live in facebook :
With the Christian groups currently there are thousands who celebrated the fall feasts 2018 in the Philippines. Truly an awakening. Intercessory for the Philippines is composed of representatives of 5000 different Christians churches in and around the Philippine Islands.
The evidences clearly shows one sure thing. Truly the islands are longing for the Torah.
Feast of Shavuot report 2018.
In the Christian scene recently in Davao city, thousands are being converted to faith, surely this is a evidence of the strong work of the Holy Spirit in this region and its just the beginning of the great harvest.
It’s an exhausting work but never discouraging. Our hearts are burning with passion to follow the Torah of YHVH.
If we see the pattern in the book Joshua. Entering the promisedland by the Israelites led by Yehoshua prophetically points to the final entry of Torah observant people through the millennial kingdom, where the faithful saints rule and reign with YHVH to make His Torah the constitution for all mankind.
Now is our dress rehearsal, holy convocation (Leviticus 23. 1-2).
Just as it is written, “ Pro 29:18 Where there is no vision, the people are let loose, But blessed is he who guards the Torah.
Are you catching the vision, my brothers and sisters?
Here’s a first hand witness ross boraan (facebook) a 70 year old Canadian who went with me to Mindanao to witness what’s going on. Read his eyewitness account:
We need to train more teachers. Our financial resources are very limited. I must admit. We need help in terms of your will donation of tithes and offerings to the ministry of www.sightedmoon.com who in turn is supporting us here in the Philippines. Radio shows cost money. Travel cost money. Lodging etc. all cost money. I myself is a volunteer. I know my reward will be great in the Millennial kingdom. And So is for you who are convicted in your hearts and spirit to support the work here in the Philippines. Much work is to be done.
If you have old second hand workable laptops you may donate it as well. We will be giving this to pastors so they comfortably and effectively study Torah teachings right from their laptops. You may send old laptops to Unit 4403 Summit tower, no. 530 shaw bvld. Mandaluyong city, Philippines 1550 c/o brother aike.
By the end of this month of October, our team is scheduled to go to Mindoro Islands. Few hundreds kilometers south of Manila. I believed somewhere in this area is the future site of our Goshen, place of refuge for the coming tribulations in 2030, last sabbatical cycle.
Meanwhile in the Political scene. While the Philippines congress is currently pushing house bill 6312 making the 7 feasts a national holiday in the Philippines. Israel getting closer to the Philippine government as ever.
Our senate recently had made it official that Philippines and Israel are two countries that have real friendships and ties.
Meanwhile President Rodrigo Duterte just last week makes prophetic history to be the first filipino president to visit the holy land of Israel since 1957.
In this video President Duterte had told Israel’s Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu that indeed his first wife Elizabeth Zimmerman is jewish and his daughter Davao City mayor Sarah simerman Duterte is of jewish descent.
Duterte Meets Israel President Reuven Rivlin.
Genesis 12:3 YHVH said to Abraham “ I will bless those who bless you , in you all the nations will be blessed.”
I believed this is just the beginning of an era that we have never seen before. Exciting times ahead of us to see how biblical prophecies comes to become a reality.
Of President Duterte recent visit to the Holy land have generated investments opportunites by Israeli companies in the Philippines.
In the near future, by the blessings of YHVH Israel technology will drill oil in the Philippine soil, blessings us from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
Pray for us beloved brethren. YHVH bless us all. We are one family jew and gentile , One Israel (Gal. 6:16) . Amen.

Update from Cambodia
First of all, I need to say I am not pressuring this man in any way nor are we claiming that we have a ministry in Cambodia. But Ross has been sharing our posts and writing me privately for a while now. Whether or not Yehovah is using him in Cambodia remains to be seen. But I do ask that you all add this country and Ross to your prayers. They do need help and right now the only person I know of there is Ross.
There are a few things I would like to share today. First, thank you James for your Burundi reports these past two weeks. You confirm what I experienced in the Philippines; the Spirit IS BEING POURED OUT in these LAST DAYS and prophecy IS BEING FULFILLED.
Prophecies of the curses being fulfilled are disturbing, to say the least but, knowing that Yehovah is fulfilling His promises of blessings and restoration of Torah is very encouraging for me. It speaks for the upside of Prophecy!
And thank you for the outline of your teaching plan. I have no background in teaching but I want to learn. I have been living in Cambodia for the past 12 years. It is here that I came to begin learning Truth. So, it is here that I feel that I should share what I have been learning. Your plan may just be the curriculum I need to follow IF Yehovah is indeed calling me to work.
Upon my return after a month in the Philippines where I celebrated the Fall Feasts, I was struck by the drastically different culture here in Cambodia. I had to wait 3 days in the city before I could find a car to take me home. All the people had stopped working to go celebrate the most important religious holidays of the year,- Hungry Ghosts Festival. This is a 15 day event where food is offered to statues, and then eaten by monks. The offerings are supposed to provide merit for souls of ancestors trapped in hell.
Cambodia is a Buddhist country. The people practice Theyuvedic traditions mixed with Animism and magic. There are lavish Temples everywhere with both Buddhist and Hindu statues.
Orange-robed monks go door to door seeking alms daily. People put money in their baskets and kneel before them, bowing their heads to the ground to be prayed over. These same monks can be seen going into brothels at days end.
In the morning people place food in front of statues in their homes and in the evening they burn incense.
Every form of unclean food is eaten; pigs, snakes, cats & dogs, rats, insects and feces-fed crawdads & shrimp.
People take no measures toward safety. Instead, they tie a red string around their wrist for good luck! When they drive they NEVER look sideways. Rearview mirrors are set so they can see their own faces. I can’t help but think of the term “stiff-necked people” when I see how they drive. Every car & motorcycle, rickshaw & bicycle attempts to be first, cutting off any other vehicle, regardless of its speed or size. When an accident happens, it’s “bad luck”. Traffic lights and signs are ignored as are lanes and speed limits, as if these are mere suggestions.
Children as young as 7 can sometimes be seen driving motorcycles. 5 people on one motorcycle is common. Helmet use is low. Vehicle maintenance considered unnecessary.
It’s not uncommon to see 4 or 5 cyclists riding abreast,- forcing traffic to slow down. And people drive home-made vehicles, thrown together from junked parts.
And, there is a consistent refusal to change the way things have been done for centuries. Old, ineffective ways are adhered to above practical modern methods. Example; I once bought a wheelbarrow so that my in-laws would not have to carry baskets of sand and gravel during the construction of our house. My brother in law filled it one time, at my insistence, and then he pushed it about 10 feet, letting it topple over. The contents spilled out onto the ground and it was never used again. It lay there for months until it was finally nothing but rust and rot.
Billions of dollars are poured into the country as aid every year, but very little of it goes to the needy. Aid workers’ expensive cars can be seen parked outside nightclubs.
The disparity between the rich and poor is astounding. I see more Lexus cars here in one day than I might see in Vancouver over a month. The rich abuse the poor. The poor abuse the poorer. Prostitution is everywhere. Whole families survive on it. Alcohol abuse is rampant.
The history of these people, attests to how cursed their lives have been. Repeated wars, enslavement by foreign powers and extreme poverty, famines and sickness. In these modern times, nothing much has changed. It has just taken a different form. How I would love to see the blessings seen in the Philippines come to Cambodia!
While in the Philippines I was asked to return and work with Torah keepers. My career used to be in Natural Health Care. So, the opportunity to do the work I love was exciting. I was grateful for the offers yet, I could not commit to return because my heart is here among these people. I need to know what, if anything, Yehovah wants me to do. I feel that I must try to reach out to these people. Besides, if I don’t, it may just be that their blood will be in my hands.
They have a word in Khmer for weekend. It’s “sabadaa”. And a word for life. It’s “ruah”. I keep asking, “Who are these people? Are they somehow the stiff-necked people spoken of in Scripture?” If I could show them how they are connected to Scripture, they might listen to teachings about Yehovah. If ever a people were in need of Yehovah, they are here.
So, as a first step, tomorrow I will do something that I thought I would never do again: go to church on Sunday! Please pray for me that Yehovah guide me and lead me to those who He has called.
Thank you, Joseph for encouraging me. As usual, you seem to know what to say (or not say) and when to say it.
Also, thank you for your teaching on Golgotha. I feel like I’ve been given secret knowledge that only a few are privileged to learn. I pray that I may be able to see it for myself one day.
Finally, I want to comment on last week’s newsletter. It was moving at a deeply personal level. I have not followed the path of faith and obedience as you have done. Until lately, my life has been mostly about seeking my own gratification. So, I have never lost anyone because of the Word. My losses of family and friends have been the result of my own irresponsible behaviour; following the example of my childhood teachers.
So, what you share about the way Yehovah has prepared you for this work is a wonderful example and lesson for me. In fact, every time you share your personal experiences and struggles, I am blessed because of the good example it provides; something I have craved all my life. This, to me, is what ‘pastoral care’ is all about!
Blessings and Shalom to all who have been called.
The Great Deception of Mankind
In Genesis, we are told how Satan deceived Eve with a lie and this caused her and Adam to choose the tree of knowledge of good and evil over the tree of life.
Gen 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.
Today in 2018, Satan is hard at work. But how many of you see him at work and are aware of the lies he is putting forward?
Let me help you to see what he is doing.
Top 20 Most Destructive Hurricanes
Here are the 20 most destructive storms to hit the United States. Notice that 17 of them have occurred since 2000. That’s further proof of the worsening impact of climate change.
Not on this list is the most recent Hurricane to hit the USA on Oct 8, 2018.
Hurricane Michael is a Category 4 storm that hit the Florida Panhandle on October 10. The area had never seen a hurricane of this magnitude. As of October 12, the death toll was 17. It brought a 7.7 foot storm surge in some areas. There was between $3 billion to $5 billion in wind and surge damage. More than 1 million customers lost power. It hit Georgia that evening as a Category 3 storm.
It was the first hurricane of that strength since the Georgia Hurricane of 1898. The storm had enough forward momentum to dump 4 to 6 inches of rain on the Carolinas. Those areas still hadn’t recovered from Hurricane Florence.
Not sure if you saw this sly comment that you just read over.
That’s further proof of the worsening impact of climate change.
We read in Genesis how Satan is the most subtle of Yehovah’s creation. And here he is planting in the minds of the world that these Hurricanes were caused by climate change. Maybe even some of you think this.
All of the above hurricanes took place in this current Jubilee cycle. The two that did not, Hugo and Andrew, I was standing on the door of both of them as they went by me when I was keeping the Feast in the Bahamas for Hugo and in St. Petersburg when Andrew came there and then went back to come ashore further south of us. The last Jubilee Cycle began in 1996 and it is the time of Jacobs Trouble.
Let’s take a look at wildfires for a second.
Dramatic images of out-of-control wildfires in western North American forests have appeared on our television and computer screens with increasing regularity in recent decades, while costs of fire suppression have soared. In 2015, federal spending on suppression exceeded US$2 billion, just 15 years after first exceeding $1 billion. Something has been changing our fire seasons.
There are competing explanations for why wildfires have been increasing, particularly in our forests. I’ve been studying the science of climate and wildfires for more than 15 yearsand the take-home message from our research is that, while our management of the landscape can influence wildfire in many different ways, it is a warming climate that is drying out western U.S. forests and leading to more, larger wildfires and a longer wildfire season.
The sharp increase in the amount of land being burned in recent decades across all vegetation types is not just due to more wildfires.
In fact, the total number of reported wildfire ignitions does not appear to have gone up. However, the number of large (greater than 1,000 acres or 400 hectares) wildfires has been growing since the 1980s, and the area burned in these fires has grown even more. Wildfires, in other words, are growing in size.
The length of the fire season has also grown throughout the last four decades, with large fires igniting earlier in the spring and later in the autumn than previously, and burning for longer. In the period between 2003 and 2012, the average burn time for individual fires was 52 days. In the 1973-1982 period, it was just six days.
Did you see it? Again the subtleness of repeated suggestions.
it is a warming climate
Let me now share the alarming report from CNN in March of 2018
(CNN)Sea level rise is happening now, and the rate at which it is rising is increasing every year, according to a study released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Continuous emissions of greenhouse gases are warming the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans and melting its ice, causing the rate of sea level rise to increase.
“This acceleration, driven mainly by accelerated melting in Greenland and Antarctica, has the potential to double the total sea level rise by 2100 as compared to projections that assume a constant rate, to more than 60 centimeters instead of about 30,” said Nerem, who is also a fellow with the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Science.
That projection agrees perfectly with climate models used in the latest International Panel on Climate Change report, which show sea level rise to be between 52 and 98 centimeters by 2100 for a “business as usual” scenario (in which greenhouse emissions continue without reduction).
Therefore, scientists now have observed evidence validating climate model projections, as well as providing policy-makers with a “data-driven assessment of sea level change that does not depend on the climate models,” Nerem said.
Sea level rise of 65 centimeters, or roughly 2 feet, would cause significant problems for coastal cities around the world. Extreme water levels, such as high tides and surges from strong storms, would be made exponentially worse.
Consider the record set in Boston Harbor during January’s “bomb cyclone” or the inundation regularly experienced in Miami during the King tides; these are occurring with sea levels that have risen about a foot in the past 100 years.
Now, researchers say we could add another 2 feet by the end of this century.
Nerem and his team took into account natural changes in sea level thanks to cycles such as El Niño/La Niña and even events such as the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo, which altered sea levels worldwide for several years.
The result is a “climate-change-driven” acceleration: the amount the sea levels are rising because of the warming caused by manmade global warming.
You can see it now, can’t you?

And here is a key report from Australia this year.
Climate change is likely making drought conditions in southwest and southeast Australia worse. ›
Climate change has contributed to a southward shift in weather systems that typically bring cool season rainfall to southern Australia. Since the 1970s late autumn and early winter rainfall has decreased by 15 percent in southeast Australia, and Western Australia’s southwest region has experienced a 15 percent decline in cool season rainfall. ›
Climate change is also driving an increase in the intensity and frequency of hot days and heatwaves in Australia, exacerbating drought conditions. ›
Queensland and New South Wales are currently in the grip of severe drought, with drought declared for 16.4 percent of New South Wales and 57.6 percent of Queensland. ›
Current drought conditions come after a 2016/2017 summer characterized by record breaking temperatures, followed by a record dry winter. Rainfall over southern Australia during autumn 2018 was the second lowest on record. ›
Time spent in drought is projected to increase in the future across southern Australia. Future drying trends in Australia will be most pronounced over southwest Western Australia, with total reductions in autumn and winter precipitation potentially as high as 50 percent by the late 21st century.
Climate change, climate change, climate change. Global warming, sustainable development, carbon tax, carbon footprint and the list of titles and the various names used are endless. All of this comes from Satan. Do you see it yet?
Let’s share with you what Wiki says about Sustainable development.
Sustainable development is the organizing principle for meeting human development goals while at the same time sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services upon which the economy and society depend. The desired result is a state of society where living conditions and resource use continue to meet human needs without undermining the integrity and stability of the natural system. Sustainable development can be classified as development that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations.
While the modern concept of sustainable development is derived mostly from the 1987 Brundtland Report, it is also rooted in earlier ideas about sustainable forest management and twentieth century environmental concerns.
You have to see what is the Brundtland Report to understand where this is coming from.
Formerly known as the World Life Issues on Environment and Development (WCED), the mission of the Brundtland Commission is to unite countries to pursue sustainable development together. The Chairperson of the Commission, Gro Harlem Brundtland, was appointed by United Nations Secretary-General Javier Pérez de Cuéllar in December 1983. At the time, the UN General Assembly realized that there was a heavy deterioration of the human environment and natural resources. To rally countries to work and pursue sustainable development together, the UN decided to establish the Brundtland Commission.
It is the UN that has sponsored this Brundtland report. The only way anyone gets paid by the UN is if they come up with reports that the UN likes and can use. If they come up with reports that show the opposite view to what the agenda of teh UN is then they will not get paid nor used again for another report. Telling your boss they are wrong will get you fired, so they keep telling the boss just how good they are and they are always right in the things they are saying. The UN is the boss and they are the ones sponsoring these reports for THEIR OWN AGENDA!
I am wondering if you have heard of the Carbon Tax? Let me briefly explain it using wiki.
A carbon tax is a tax levied on the carbon content of fuels. It is a form of carbon pricing. Revenue obtained via the tax is however not always used to compensate the carbon emissions on which the tax is levied (see implementation). Carbon is present in every hydrocarbon fuel (coal, petroleum, and natural gas) and converted to carbon dioxide (CO
2) and other products when combusted. In contrast, non-combustion energy sources—wind, sunlight, geothermal, hydro power, and nuclear—do not convert hydrocarbons to CO
2 is a heat-trapping “greenhouse” gas which represents a negative externality on the climate system (see scientific opinion on global warming).Since GHG emissions caused by the combustion of fossil fuels are closely related to the carbon content of the respective fuels, a tax on these emissions can be levied by taxing the carbon content of fossil fuels at any point in the product cycle of the fuel.
Carbon tax offers social and economic benefits. It is a tax that increases revenue without significantly altering the economy while simultaneously promoting objectives of climate change policy. The objective of a carbon tax is to reduce the harmful and unfavorable levels of carbon dioxide emissions, thereby decelerating climate change and its negative effects on the environment and human health.
Carbon taxes offer a potentially cost-effective means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. From an economic perspective, carbon taxes are a type of Pigovian tax. They help to address the problem of emitters of greenhouse gases not facing the full social cost of their actions. Carbon taxes can be a regressive tax, in that they may directly or indirectly affect low-income groups disproportionately. The regressive impact of carbon taxes could be addressed by using tax revenues to favour low-income groups.
A number of countries have implemented carbon taxes or energy taxes that are related to carbon content. Most environmentally related taxes with implications for greenhouse gas emissions in OECD countries are levied on energy products and motor vehicles, rather than on CO
2 emissions directly.
CO2 and global warming
Carbon dioxide is one of several heat-trapping greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted by humans (anthropogenic GHGs).:6 The scientific consensus is that human-induced greenhouse gas emissions are the primary cause of global warming, and that carbon dioxide is the most important of the anthropogenic GHGs. Worldwide, 27 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide are produced by human activity annually. The physical effect of CO2 in the atmosphere can be measured as a change in the Earth-atmosphere system’s energy balance – the radiative forcing of CO2. Carbon taxes are one of the policies available to governments to reduce GHG emissions.
In the Kyoto Protocol (an international treaty), CO2 emissions are regulated along with other GHGs. Different GHGs have different physical properties: the global warming potential is an internationally accepted scale of equivalence for other greenhouse gases in units of tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
And in Canada right now the nightly news is talking about scrapping the Cap and Trade Tax. What is this? Again from Wiki.
Carbon taxes compared to cap-and-trade
See also: Cap-and-trade
An alternative government policy to a carbon tax is a cap on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Emission levels of GHGs are capped and permits to pollute are freely allocated (called “grandfathering”) or auctioned to polluters. Auctioning permits has significant economic advantages over grandfathering. In particular, auctioning raises revenues that can be used to reduce distortionary taxes and improve overall efficiency. A market may be allowed for these emission permits so that polluters can trade some or all of their permits with others (cap-and-trade). A hybrid instrument of a cap and carbon tax can be made by creating a price-floor and price-ceiling for emission permits. A carbon tax can also be implemented concurrently with a cap.
Unlike a cap system with grandfathered permits, a carbon tax raises revenues. If the revenues are used to reduce other distortionary taxes, this can improve the efficiency of the tax. On the other hand, a cap with grandfathered permits can have an efficiency advantage of being applied to all industries. This provides an equal incentive at the margin for all polluters to reduce their emissions. This is an advantage over a tax that exempts or has reduced rates for certain sectors.
Both carbon taxes and permit systems (Cap and Trade) aim to reduce the total quantity of carbon emissions by creating a price for emitting CO2 pollution, but they achieve this goal in distinctly separate ways. While carbon taxes dictate the price that will be paid for each unit of pollution, permit systems set a specific quantity of CO2 that all applicable entities will be held to and divides this total amount into tradable permits. In the absence of uncertainty these two systems will achieve the same effect and result in the efficient market quantity of CO2 and price charged per unit of CO2 emitted. In the case of environmental uncertainty, that is when the environmental damages of each unit of CO2 cannot be accurately calculated, a permit system may be more advantageous in order to limit total quantity and thus potential damages. In the case of uncertainty regarding the costs of CO2 abatement for firms, a tax is preferable. The abatement uncertainty issue was illustrated in 2005 by the first phase of the European Union Emissions Trading System (cap and trade). In this program, the initial allocation of permits was too great as the EU did not accurately assess the CO2 reduction capabilities of the various firms it regulated, and thus firms simply reduced their emissions to their allotted quantity without the purchase of any additional permits. This drove the permit prices to nearly zero two years after the program began, crashing the system and commanding reform and permit allocation refinement that would eventually manifest itself in the current European Union Emissions Trading System (Phase 3)
Here are now two charts showing who is implementing this carbon tax and how much of the Green House Gases are now covered by this Tax.
This excerpt from Carbon Brief’s “Paris Climate Pledge Tracker” shows the INDC’s for the world’s four largest GHG emitters. The reader is urged to view or download the World Bank’s latest (2018) State and Trends of Carbon Pricing report, for its comprehensive overview on carbon taxes and cap-and-trade systems in place or under consideration around the world, along with national and subnational particulars. Please also note Carbon Brief’s Paris climate pledge tracker, an evolving on-line spreadsheet that summarizes 190 nations’ INDC’s (individual nationally-determined commitments) that constitute the Paris climate agreement. The Carbon Brief document also shows each nation’s share of world 2012 greenhouse gas emissions.
The three graphics directly below are from the World Bank’s 2016 report (to be updated shortly to the 2018 report; we also show them slightly out of order).
Can you see Satan at work yet? Today in 2018 everyone is very busy with the Carbon Tax or the Cap and Trade Tax or whatever it is called by in each individual country. Now read this report from 2012.

UN Urges Countries To Impose Global Taxes, Raise $400 Billion
UN proposes carbon, billionaires, currency taxes
UN says more money needed for aid, global challenges
UN has no authority or mechanism to enforce taxes
UNITED NATIONS, July 5 (Reuters) – The United Nations on Thursday urged countries to impose international taxes to raise more than $400 billion a year, such as a carbon tax, a currency transaction tax and a billionaires tax, to offset cutbacks in aid by many countries amid global economic turmoil.
The U.N. World Economic and Social Survey found the needs of developing countries were not being met, more money was needed to fight challenges like climate change and new taxes would help “donor countries overcome their record of broken promises.”
The United Nations has no authority or mechanisms to enforce an international tax and can only urge its 193 members to do so. The world body plays a marginal role in economic issues, which is the realm of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
“Donor countries have fallen well short of their aid commitments and development assistance declined last year because of budget cuts, increasing the shortfall to $167 billion,” the survey’s author, Rob Vos, said in a statement.
“We are suggesting various ways to tap resources through international mechanisms, such as coordinated taxes on carbon emissions, air traffic, and financial and currency transactions,” he said.
As of right now, they have not implemented the taxes on billionaires nor currency transaction.
In 2017 I went to Burundi Africa and I spoke with the Vice President of Burundi on two occasions on that weekend trip. We spoke face to face and talked about what was going on with the UN, the EU and Burundi. These billions of dollars that are collected in these Carbon Taxes and Cap and Trade taxes are to made available for use in the poorest countries of the world. Burundi is amongst the poorest of all nations. But Burundi gets nothing. They are so poor they cannot send an ambassador to the UN to represent that nation.
Canada is boasting of how they take the Carbon Tax money to support other nations in clean energy development.
Canada is pleased to present its 7th National Communication and 3rd Biennial Report on Climate Change to meet its reporting requirements under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Canada has prepared these reports in accordance with adopted guidelines and other guidance for National Communications and Biennial Reports.
Canada has taken significant steps to address climate change since its last report to the UNFCCC. In addition to being one of the first Parties to the UNFCCC to sign and ratify the Paris Agreement, Canada has followed through on its Paris commitments by developing a new national plan to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, enhance resilience to the impacts of climate change, and transition to a clean growth economy.
Less than 90 days after Paris Climate Change Conference in December 2015, the Prime Minister of Canada met with all Provincial and Territorial Premiers (collectively referred to as First Ministers) to adopt the Vancouver Declaration on Clean Growth and Climate Change. In the Vancouver Declaration, First Ministers agreed to work together to take ambitious action in support of meeting or exceeding Canada’s commitment to reduce GHG emissions by 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.
Canada is committed to supporting developing countries to obtain clean and reliable sources of energy and enhance resilience, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable countries, in their fight to adapt to the impacts of climate change.
Recently, Canada significantly increased its financial contribution to support developing countries’ transition to low carbon economies. In 2015, Canada pledged $2.65 billion over five years for this initiative and began delivering on this pledge in 2016. Over the last two years, Canada has announced an additional $353 million for assistance to developing countries.
Over 50 developing countries are benefitting directly from recent Canadian climate change support, and a much larger number of countries are also benefitting from contributions made by Canada to other multilateral funds.
Before I explain this let me now share with you the most recent news from the United Nations that came out during Sukkot this year in 2018. October 7 INCHEON, South Korea — A landmark report from the United Nations.
Keep in mind who wrote this report. The report, issued on Monday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists convened by the United Nations to guide world leaders. Again if they do not produce a report that confirms the agenda of the UN then they will all be out of a job. If that report does not incite the masses to pay their carbon taxes then the UN will not have the money to carry on doing what it does.
UN warns we have 12 years to curb climate change
EVEN half degree of extra warming will affect hundreds of millions of people, destroy corals and power heat extremes, a UN report shows.
PREVENTING an extra single degree of heat could make a life or death difference in the next few decades for multitudes of people and ecosystems on this fast-warming planet, an international panel of scientists reported.
But they provide little hope the world will rise to the challenge.
The Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued its gloomy report at a meeting in Incheon, South Korea, on Sunday.
In the 728-page document, the UN organization detailed how Earth’s weather, health and ecosystems would be in better shape if the world’s leaders could somehow limit future human-caused warming to just 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit (a half degree Celsius) from now, instead of the globally agreed-upon goal of 1.8 degrees F (1 degree C).
To limit warming to the lower temperature goal, the world needs “rapid and far-reaching” changes in energy systems, land use, city and industrial design, transportation and building use, the report said.
Annual carbon dioxide pollution levels that are still rising now would have to drop by about half by 2030 and then be near zero by 2050.
Emissions of other greenhouse gases, such as methane, also will have to drop.
Switching away rapidly from fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas to do this could be more expensive than the less ambitious goal, but it would clean the air of other pollutants.
And that would have the side benefit of avoiding more than 100 million premature deaths through this century, the report said.
“Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security and economic growth are projected to increase with global warming” the report said, adding that the world’s poor are more likely to get hit hardest.
Among other things the report also found:
— Half as many people would suffer from lack of water;
— There would be fewer deaths and illnesses from heat, smog and infectious diseases;
— Seas would rise nearly 4 inches (0.1 meters) less;
— Half as many animals with back bones and plants would lose the majority of their habitats;
— There would be substantially fewer heatwaves, downpours and droughts;
— The West Antarctic ice sheet might not kick into irreversible melting;
— And it just may be enough to save most of the world’s coral reefs from dying.
“For some people this is a life or death situation without a doubt,” said Cornell University climate scientist Natalie Mahowald, a lead author on the report.
Limiting warming to 0.9 degrees from now means the world can keep “a semblance” of the ecosystems we have.
Adding another 0.9 degrees on top of that — the looser global goal — essentially means a different and more challenging Earth for people and species, said another of the report’s lead authors, Ove Hoegh- Guldberg, director of the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland, Australia.
But meeting the more ambitious goal of slightly less warming would require immediate, draconian cuts in emissions of heat-trapping gases and dramatic changes in the energy field. While the UN panel says technically that’s possible, it saw little chance of the needed adjustments happening.
In 2010, international negotiators adopted a goal of limiting warming to 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F) since pre-industrial times. It’s called the 2-degree goal.
In 2015, when the nations of the world agreed to the historic Paris climate agreement, they set dual goals: 2 degrees C and a more demanding target of 1.5 degrees C from pre-industrial times.
The 1.5 was at the urging of vulnerable countries that called 2 degrees a death sentence.
The world has already warmed 1 degree C since pre-industrial times, so the talk is really about the difference of another half-degree C or 0.9 degrees F from now.
“There is no definitive way to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 above pre-industrial levels,” the UN-requested report said.
More than 90 scientists wrote the report, which is based on more than 6000 peer reviews. “Global warming is likely to reach 1.5 degrees C between 2030 and 2052 if it continues to increase at the current rate,” the report states.
Deep in the report, scientists say less than 2 per cent of 529 of their calculated possible future scenarios kept warming below the 1.5 goal without the temperature going above that and somehow coming back down in the future.
The pledges nations made in the Paris agreement in 2015 are “clearly insufficient to limit warming to 1.5 in any way,” one of the study’s lead authors, Joerj Roeglj of the Imperial College in London, said.
“I just don’t see the possibility of doing the one and a half” and even 2 degrees looks unlikely, said Appalachian State University environmental scientist Gregg Marland, who isn’t part of the UN panel but has tracked global emissions for decades for the US Energy Department.
He likened the report to an academic exercise wondering what would happen if a frog had wings. Yet report authors said they remain optimistic.
Limiting warming to the lower goal is “not impossible but will require unprecedented changes,” UN panel chief Hoesung Lee said in a news conference in which scientists repeatedly declined to spell out just how feasible that goal is.
They said it is up to governments to decide whether those unprecedented changes are acted upon.
“We have a monumental task in front of us, but it is not impossible,” Mahowald said earlier. “This is our chance to decide what the world is going to look like.”
Princeton University climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer said extreme weather, especially heatwaves, will be deadlier if the lower goal is passed.
Meeting the tougher-to-reach goal “could result in around 420 million fewer people being frequently exposed to extreme heatwaves, and about 65 million fewer people being exposed to exceptional heatwaves,” the report said.
The deadly heatwaves that hit India and Pakistan in 2015 will become practically yearly events if the world reaches the hotter of the two goals, the report said.
Coral and other ecosystems are also at risk.
The report said warmer water coral reefs “will largely disappear.”
The outcome will determine whether “my grandchildren would get to see beautiful coral reefs,” Princeton’s Oppenheimer said.
For scientists there is a bit of “wishful thinking” that the report will spur governments and people to act quickly and strongly, one of the panel’s leaders, German biologist Hans-Otto Portner, said.
“If action is not taken it will take the planet into an unprecedented climate future.”
So 12 years from now, 2018, brings us to the year 2030. What is to happen in 2030. According to the 2300 Days of Hell book, I have written, that is the start of the 3 1/2 years of tribulation.
Have you considered the implications of what we are told in Rev 7:1
After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow on earth or sea or against any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the rising of the sun, with the seal of the living God, and he called with a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm earth and sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:
We have seen the destructive power of typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines a few years ago, and just this year of Hurricane Florence and of Michael wiping away whole blocks of houses. Monstrous winds that are growing stronger with each punishment that Yehovah sends upon us.
And what are we to make of Rev 9:1
And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit. He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. Then from the smoke came locusts on the earth, and they were given power like the power of scorpions of the earth. They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any green plant or any tree, but only those people who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not to kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them.
It would seem that even the demons are adhering to the United Nations to protect the environment.
Now watch as President Trumps explains his views on this report from the UN that he did with 60 Minutes. You only need to watch the first couple of minutes.
Now before I forget let me show you what the United Nations plan is to solve the Carbon footprint. As we have shared above with you it is the new Carbon Tax.
What will it take to keep the planet habitable?
According to some eco-warriors, all that’s necessary is to end capitalism—the one economic system that has lifted billions from poverty and suffering.
The latest United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report led Eric Holthaus, a Grist writer, to tweet enthusiastically, “The world’s top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism as a key requirement to maintaining civilization and a habitable planet.”
The sentiment is not new. Three years ago, while pushing for the Paris Climate Accord, U.N. climate official Christiana Figueres described the strategy this way:
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”
To accomplish such a feat, the new report proposes an energy tax of epic proportions. It claims that, to keep warming in check, by 2030 we’ll need to impose a tax of between $135 and $5,500 on every ton of carbon emitted.
And that’s just for starters. By the end of the century, the authors say, we’ll have to jack the tax up to as much as $27,000 per ton.
How would that play out in the real world, where conventional carbon-emitting fuels currently generate about 80 percent of all energy consumed? Carbon taxes of the magnitude suggested in the report would bankrupt families and businesses and trigger a global economic disaster.
Using the same model as the federal government’s Energy Information Administration, Heritage Foundation analysts estimated the economic impacts of a $37 per ton carbon tax—less than a third of the panel’s lowest recommendation.
The model indicates that, at $37 per ton, the tax would reduce U.S. aggregate gross domestic product by more than $2.5 trillion over the next 17 years. That translates to more than $21,000 in lost income, per family. It would also destroy more than a million jobs, half of them in energy-intensive manufacturing sectors.
The higher the tax goes, the greater the economic damage. At $135 per ton, the model crashes. These costs are far higher than most Americans are willing to pay.
And it’s bound to be doubly discouraging when they consider that these polls failed to mention that, while high taxes would destroy the globe’s economic system, they would produce virtually no “climate benefit” at all.
In the developing world, more than 1.4 billion people still suffer from energy poverty. The U.N. report means nothing to them. Their priority is gaining access to energy and the economic growth it allows. They will continue to increase their greenhouse gas emissions, no matter how loudly the U.N. sirens blare.
Yes, developing countries are spending money on green technologies, but they’re also building a lot of new coal plants. The current and projected use of fossil fuels, including coal, almost certainly guarantees that the report’s reduction targets won’t be met through some massive energy overhaul.
Yes Brethren, the Carbon Tax is nothing but a money grab and at the same time, it is going to destroy our economy. This is why Canada has begun to implement it.
The IPCC’s report on Monday, October 8, 2018, was three years in the making and is a direct result of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. In the Paris accord, 193 countries agreed to the goal of holding global temperatures “well below” 2 degrees C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees C. There are 193 nation in the world. So 193, or 100% of the world’s nations signed up for the Paris Accord. Once President Elect Trump won the race for President, the then sitting President of the USA, President Obama rushed to sign this Paris Accord before President-Elect Trump could take office in Jan of 2016. The United States was initially in the agreement, but President Donald Trump pulled the country out June 1, 2017, claiming it was unfair to the country.
In respect to this new report Al Gore said the following.
“Today the world’s leading scientific experts collectively reinforced what mother nature has made clear — that we need to undergo an urgent and rapid transformation to a global clean energy economy,” former US Vice President Al Gore said.
“Unfortunately, the Trump administration has become a rogue outlier in its shortsighted attempt to prop up the dirty fossil fuel industries of the past. The administration is in direct conflict with American businesses, states, cities and citizens leading the transformation.”
The Covenant Made with Many-The Great Deception of Mankind
Why does this IPCC report upset me so much? What is wrong with trying to protect the environment?
Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,
United Nations Environment Programme
5 June 1972
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is an agency of United Nations and coordinates its environmental activities, assisting developing countries in implementing environmentally sound policies and practices. It was founded by Maurice Strong, its first director, as a result of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (Stockholm Conference) in June 1972 and has overall responsibility for environmental problems among United Nations agencies but international talks on specialized issues, such as addressing climate change or combating desertification, are overseen by other UN organizations, like the Bonn-based Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification. UN Environment activities cover a wide range of issues regarding the atmosphere, marine and terrestrial ecosystems, environmental governance and green economy. It has played a significant role in developing international environmental conventions, promoting environmental science and information and illustrating the way those can be implemented in conjunction with policy, working on the development and implementation of policy with national governments, regional institutions in conjunction with environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs). UN Environment has also been active in funding and implementing environment related development projects.
UN Environment has aided in the formulation of guidelines and treaties on issues such as the international trade in potentially harmful chemicals, transboundary air pollution, and contamination of international waterways. Relevant documents, including scientific papers, are available via the UNEP Document Repository.
The World Meteorological Organization and UN Environment established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988.
This UNEP that began June 16, 1972, was followed by another Called Rio plus 20 which took place 20 years later and formed Agenda 21 initiatives. These all led to the Paris Accord on the Environment.
In 1972 there were 113 nations that agreed to it and in 2016 we had 193 out of 193 nations sign one to it.
The UNEP which today is known as the Paris Accord is the covenant made with many spoke of in Daniel 9:27.
What is wrong with Saving the environment. Nothing. But in this agreement are some things that are not kosher.
Here are the 26 principles of the UNEP that were ratified by the signing parties.
The meeting agreed upon a Declaration containing 26 principles concerning the environment and development; an Action Plan with 109 recommendations, and a Resolution.
Principles of the Stockholm Declaration:
1 Human rights must be asserted, apartheid and colonialism condemned
2 Natural resources must be safeguarded
3 The Earth’s capacity to produce renewable resources must be maintained
4 Wildlife must be safeguarded
5 Non-renewable resources must be shared and not exhausted
6 Pollution must not exceed the environment’s capacity to clean itself
7 Damaging oceanic pollution must be prevented
8 Development is needed to improve the environment
9 Developing countries therefore need assistance
10 Developing countries need reasonable prices for exports to carry out environmental management
11 Environment policy must not hamper development
12 Developing countries need money to develop environmental safeguards
13 Integrated development planning is needed
14 Rational planning should resolve conflicts between environment and development
15 Human settlements must be planned to eliminate environmental problems
16 Governments should plan their own appropriate population policies
17 National institutions must plan development of states’ natural resources
18 Science and technology must be used to improve the environment
19 Environmental education is essential
20 Environmental research must be promoted, particularly in developing countries
21 States may exploit their resources as they wish but must not endanger others
22 Compensation is due to states thus endangered
23 Each nation must establish its own standards
24 There must be cooperation on international issues
25 International organizations should help to improve the environment
26 Weapons of mass destruction must be eliminated
When I see this the very first thing that leaps off the page at me in the very first principle about Human rights. What do Human rights have to do with saving the blue whale or the panda bear? The answer is nothing. But do not forget who is behind this movement. We said from the beginning we are going to show you where Satan is at work.
Notice how the first principle is now used and changed at the UN.
In April 2003, Brazil presented a resolution prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, however in the ensuing debates the Commission voted to postpone discussions on the resolution until 2004.
In December 2006, the discussions expanded to include gender identity, when Norway presented a joint statement on human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity at the Commission on Human Rights on behalf of 54 states. This was followed by a joint statement presented at the General Assembly by Argentina on behalf of 66 states in December 2008. The 2008 statement in support of LGBT rights in the General Assembly prompted a statement backed by the Arab League and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation in opposition to LGBT rights. Both statements remain open for signature, and neither has been officially adopted by the General Assembly.
On June 17, 2011, South Africa led a resolution at the UNHRC requesting that the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights draft a report “documenting discriminatory laws and practices and acts of violence against individuals based on their sexual orientation and gender identity” to follow up and implementation of the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action. The resolution passed with 23 votes in favour to 19 against, with 3 abstentions. It was the first such resolution and was hailed as “historic”.
The report, which came out in December 2011, documented violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity, including hate crimes, criminalization of homosexuality, and discrimination. High Commissioner Navi Pillay called for equitable ages of consent; comprehensive laws against discrimination based on sexual orientation; prompt investigation and recording of hate crime incidents; the repeal of laws criminalizing homosexuality; and other measures to ensure the protection of the rights of LGBT persons. The text of the report from the UNHRC is dated on 17 November 2011.
After 2011 when Heads of Western nations went to other countries whenever they spoke about Human Rights, they were, in fact, talking about LGBT rights which were now enshrined in the Human Rights law which was the very first principle of the UNEP. And the Paris Accord also enshrined these rights as agreed to by all 193 co-signers of this agreement.
Before President Elect Trump took office in Jan 2017 Then sitting President Obama rushed to sign the Treaty and locked in the USA to the Paris Accord for a minimum of 4 years. President Trump vowed to exit from the Paris Accord.
According to the rules of the Paris agreement, nations wishing to exit must first submit a document to the United Nations specifying their intent to withdraw. However, this is permitted only after three years have passed since the agreement entered into force — and that date was Nov. 4, 2016. This means that the U.S. can submit its written notice Nov. 4, 2019, at the earliest. After that, the rules specify that the official withdrawal will take effect exactly one year later at the earliest, or potentially on a later date of the party’s choosing.
Altogether, if Trump acted as quickly as possible to withdraw from the agreement, the process could be completed Nov. 4, 2020, at the earliest. That’s the day after the next presidential election.
Look again at Daniel 9
Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,
Here is the meaning of the word week.
H7620 sha^bu^a? sha^bu^a? shebu^?a^h
shaw-boo’-ah, shaw-boo’-ah, sheb-oo-aw’
Properly passive participle of H7650 as a denominative of H7651; literally sevened, that is, a week (specifically of years): – seven, week.
A primitive root; properly to be complete, but used only as a denominative from H7651; to seven oneself, that is, swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times): – adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full [by mistake for H7646], take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear.
H7651 sheba? shib?a^h
From H7650; a primitive cardinal number; seven (as the sacred full one); also (adverbially) seven times; by implication a week; by extension an indefinite number: – (+ by) seven ([-fold], -s, [-teen, -teenth], -th, times). Compare H7658.

Exodus 34:22 has this same word weeks as Shebua and is talking about the Feast of “weeks” Shebua or Shavuot for plural.
You shall observe the Feast of Weeks, the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the year’s end.
Again in Numbers 28:26
“On the day of the firstfruits, when you offer a grain offering of new grain to the Lord at your Feast of Weeks, you shall have a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work,
And in Deut 16:16
“Three times a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God at the place that he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Booths. They shall not appear before the Lord empty-handed.
This same word Shubua is that used in Daniel 9 is used in 2 Chronicles and again is talking about the Feast of Weeks.
2 Chro 8:13 as the duty of each day required, offering according to the commandment of Moses for the Sabbaths, the new moons, and the three annual feasts—the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks, and the Feast of Booths.
Each of the 5 times Daniel 9 uses the word “weeks he is, in fact, talking about the Feast of Weeks, the 49 days or the 7 Sabbath that lead up to the 50th day of Shavuot also called Pentecost. These 7 weeks are the sevening of our oath to keep the Mount Sinai covenant that was agreed to when Israel was at Mount Sinai. Now those same people have grown into some of the most powerful and most blessed nations on the earth and they too have entered into this covenant of death with Satan and rebelled against the covenant they made with Yehovah.
What did Balaam say was the only way to take down this mighty nation of Israel when he was called to curse them.
The last time Balaam took a full view of Israel’s camp, he exclaimed “How goodly are thy tents, 0 Jacob, thy dwellings, 0 Israel! As valleys stretch out, as gardens by the river-side; as aloes planted of the L-rd, as cedars beside the waters. Water shall flow from his branches, and his seed shall be in many waters; and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted. G?d who brought him forth out of Egypt is for him like the lofty horns of the wild-ox; he shall eat up the nations that are his adversaries, and shall break their bones in pieces, and pierce them through with his arrows. He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a lioness; who shall rouse him up? Blessed be every one that blesseth thee, and cursed be every one that curseth thee.”
Now Balak was really angry, and he ordered Balaam to return home. Before he left, however, Balaam told Balak that the only way to harm the people of Israel was to seduce them into sin. For only then would G?d punish His people.
The kings of Moab and Midian acted upon this shrewd advice of Balaam. They arranged a big feast in honor of their idols and invited the children of Israel to participate in the ceremonies. Many of the Jewish people fell for this ruse and participated in these heathen celebrations. Amongst them was Zimri, a prince of the family of Simeon, who was not ashamed to let the entire Jewish community witness his evil conduct.
This covenant, this Paris Accord that the entire world has signed up for and agreed to is an agreement to support and encourage Baal Peor worship. Peor is the god of holes. This is the god of oral and annal sex, or sex with animals, or children. Satan is whispering in the ears of the entire world that men having sex with men is good. Of men having sex anally is great whether with a man or a woman or a child. Satan is telling people to accept whatever sexuality a person claims to be. He is telling you that pedophilia is just another sexual preference and that it too is going to be permissible.
Satan is telling you that as long as they keep it to themselves and it doesn’t harm you it is OK. Really, is that right?
We are right now about to end the 6th millennial day of mankind and begin the 7th Millennium. The 7th Millennium of rest spoken of in Hebrews. And in the exact same way that Israel was taken captive by Baal Peor just before they entered the promised land so are we today being taken captive by this covenant the world has signed with Satan through the UN Paris Accord in the worship of Baal Peor LGBTQ human rights.
We are in the year 2018 right now at this posting. The year 2044 is the 49th year of the 120th Jubilee cycle and then the 7th Millennium begins. but before it begins all these end-time prophecies must conclude.
Count the years from June 1972 when the UNEP was made into a soft law. Count out 49 of them as that is what Daniel 9 is telling you. That this covenant would last one week, one shabua, one 49 year period of time. That brings you to the year 2020. Jume 2020 is Shavuot.
So while Satan has the whole world playing the climate change game, and causing them to think it is man-made, Satan has caused you to take your eyes off of Yehovah and not realize that it is Yehovah who is sending all of these disasters, the hurricanes, the typhoons, the earthquakes and tsunamis, the droughts and the wildfires. Yehovah is sending them as a warning to turn back to Him or things will get worse. but because we think these are man-made disasters no one is looking at Yehovah. They are deceived by Satan and think Yehovah is not doing anything. This is just mother nature acting out because of our carbon footprints. The amount of fossil fuel we are using.
Fire fell from heaven and destroyed Job’s flocks (Job 1:16). This was a direct attack from Satan, but, as the earlier part of Job 1 explains, Satan was acting with the permission of Yehovah (verse 12). It was a tragedy allowed by Yehovah and, in the end, bringing glory to Yehovah. On the other side of his trials, Job was blessed with even larger flocks (Job 42:12).
Fire coming down from heaven was also a means of Yehovah’s judgment. Fire in the form of burning sulfur rained from the heavens and destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19:24; Luke 17:29). Yehovah also used fire from heaven to judge the soldiers sent by the wicked king Ahaziah to arrest Elijah—twice, fire descended from heaven to consume a group of fifty soldiers sent on the king’s business (2 Kings 1:10, 12).

Who controls the winds? Yehovah does!
Brethren do not forget what you are told in Mat 24 do not be led astray by this carbon tax nor by the UN Paris Accord. The Great Tribulation comes after Passover 2030. 12 years from now. And unless those days were cut short no one would survive. So the extreme weather event will be so severe, but Yehovah is the one sending them. Satan is going to destroy everyone. But we must not forget who is sending them and why. So that we turn back to Yehovah. If we think it is just mother nature we are deceived. If we think it is mankind and fossil fuels we are deceived still. It is Yehovah and He alone.
:4 And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
The Abomination of Desolation
“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.
The USA Withdraws from Nuclear Treaty with Russia
This past weekend of October 20-21, 2018 saw the announcement by President Trump that the USA was going to withdraw from the INF, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces, or INF
Konstatin Kosachev, head of the foreign affairs committee in Russia’s upper house of parliament, said that a US withdrawal from the treaty would mean “mankind is facing full chaos in the nuclear weapons sphere”.
“Washington’s desire to turn back politics cannot be supported. Not only Russia, but also all who cherish the world, especially a world without nuclear weapons, must declare this,” Mr Gorbachev said.
British defence secretary Gavin Williamson said the UK stands “absolutely resolute” with Washington on the issue and called on the Kremlin to “get its house in order”. German foreign minister Heiko Maas said Mr Trump’s announcement “raises difficult questions for us and Europe”, but noted that Russia has not cleared up allegations of violating the treaty. The prospect of withdrawing from the INF adds to the substantial tensions between Washington and Moscow,
According to the Russians, President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) treaty will bring the world closer to the nuclear apocalypse. “Mankind is facing full chaos in the nuclear weapons sphere,” one high-ranking Russian lawmaker said.
The last time the issue of arms control was this dramatic was during the era of the Betamax, Cabbage Patch Kids and Ronald Reagan. But before you sign up for that peace march, you might want to consider the context of Trump’s decision.
The INF treaty was supposed to eliminate all missiles with a range of about 300 to 3,500 miles. When Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed that agreement in 1987, they ended a dangerous standoff in Europe, where both sides had deployed hundreds of nuclear-tipped weapons.
For 21 years, it worked. The U.S. stopped producing intermediate-range missiles, and so did the Russians. But in 2008, the same year Russia invaded Georgia, Moscow began to cheat. That’s when Russia began testing “a ground-launched cruise missile that flies to ranges banned by the treaty,” said Rose Gottemoeller, President Barack Obama’s undersecretary of State for arms control and international security, in a 2015 interview. The U.S. began calling out Russia on those tests in 2013, she said, and the two nations have “been butting heads ever since.”
More recently, the Russians have become even bolder. In 2017, Gen. Paul Selva, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress that the Russians had deployed that missile, known as the 9M729, “in order to pose a threat to NATO and to facilities within the NATO area of responsibility.”
Faced with these facts, Trump had to make choices. He could continue to do what the Obama administration had done, and try to shame the Russians into compliance. He could have sought to renegotiate the INF Treaty to account for the new Russian deployments. Or he could do what he just did, and withdraw from a treaty to which only America adhered.
Trump made the right choice. Again, it’s worth recalling the lead up to the original INF Treaty. In the early 1980s, Reagan was under enormous pressure from western European allies to hold off on deploying the Pershing II missiles to counter the Soviet SS-20s. He resisted, and the Pershing II missiles were deployed.
That chess move paid off. The deployment was one factor that helped persuade the Soviets to negotiate seriously for the INF Treaty in 1987. The lesson: Some short-term proliferation may be necessary for long-term arms control.
Trump is taking a similar approach today. He has said he is open to a new INF Treaty — one that Russia honors which China joins. (An estimated 95 percent of China’s missiles would be prohibited by the INF Treaty, to which China is not currently a party.) As it now stands, the U.S. is the only great power keeping to the terms of the 31-year-old treaty.
For Russia and other Western arms-control enthusiasts, Trump’s withdrawal is a dangerous gamble. But it’s a gamble worth taking. What’s the point of upholding an arms-control treaty that only constrains America? Better to pull out now in the hopes of getting a real treaty later.
What does This Mean?
Again according to Daniel 9 we read
:26 And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.
And this is what is said in in verse 27
and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one that maketh desolate; and even unto the full end, and that determined, shall wrath be poured out upon the desolate.
So from the going forth of the command which was when Yehovah told Moses to go and get the people which led to the Exodus you count 69 Jubilee cycles and this brings you to the year 1996. So after 1996 The Anointed shall be cut off and be as if they never were. The Anointed are the 12 tribes of Israel. They are the ones to be cut off after 1996. We are in the final Jubilee cycle now. Again look at the chart above.
Then in verse 27, we are told that in the midst of the final Jubilee cycle this end is to come. The middle of this Jubilee cycle is the year 2020. That year of 2020 the first six months is when the primaries for the next US election begin and the next president will be elected by Nov 3, 2020.
But right now across the USA, we are witnessing something we have never seen before.
Here is a link with many of the death threats against the President calling for his assassination. There was a time when just mentioning it got you a jail term. But not today. Even on the Ellen Degeneris show, it was joked about openly and the audience laughs at it. You can watch it here. Even Madona made a threat against the white house and no one did anything to her.
The Democrats are openly harassing those associated with The Trump team in restaurants and in boycotting those restaurants who host any of the Republicans. This is sounding more like it is building up to a civil war between those on the left and those on the right.
Then this week also we heard on the news how pipe bombs were sent to former President Obama and Hilary Clinton and others that were all critics of President Trump. Pipe Bombs. This is getting out of hand.
We need to be praying for our leaders. We are in the most dangerous time in the history of mankind. We are fast coming up on the middle of this current Jubilee cycle.
There is an ongoing smuggling business that brings people over from the Middle East to Brazil and then ships them up through central American and then into the southern border of the USA. You can read about it in this article and also on October 24, 2018, President Jimmy Morales of Guatemala stated that
his administration has captured “close to 100 people completely linked to terrorist issues, with ISIS and that not only have we arrested them within our territory, but they have been deported to their countries of origin.”
I have wondered for years how Yehovah was going to bring down the mighty USA.
Hosea 5:9 Ephraim shall become a desolation in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be. The princes of Judah are like them that remove the landmark: I will pour out my wrath upon them like water. Ephraim is oppressed, he is crushed in judgment; because he was content to walk after man’s command. Therefore am I unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness. When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to Assyria, and sent to king Jareb: but he is not able to heal you, neither will he cure you of your wound. For I will be unto Ephraim as a lion, and as a young lion to the house of Judah: I, even I, will tear and go away; I will carry off, and there shall be none to deliver.
I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me earnestly.
The USA and the UK have an incurable wound that no one will heal and no one will come to their aid. Again read what Yehovah says.
Jeremiah 30:9 But they shall serve the Lord their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.
“Then fear not, O Jacob my servant, declares the Lord,
nor be dismayed, O Israel;
for behold, I will save you from far away,
and your offspring from the land of their captivity.
Jacob shall return and have quiet and ease,
and none shall make him afraid.
For I am with you to save you,
declares the Lord;
I will make a full end of all the nations
among whom I scattered you,
but of you I will not make a full end.
I will discipline you in just measure,
and I will by no means leave you unpunished.
“For thus says the Lord:
Your hurt is incurable,
and your wound is grievous.
There is none to uphold your cause,
no medicine for your wound,
no healing for you.
All your lovers have forgotten you;
they care nothing for you;
for I have dealt you the blow of an enemy,
the punishment of a merciless foe,
because your guilt is great,
because your sins are flagrant.
Why do you cry out over your hurt?
Your pain is incurable.
Because your guilt is great,
because your sins are flagrant,
I have done these things to you.
Therefore all who devour you shall be devoured,
and all your foes, every one of them, shall go into captivity;
those who plunder you shall be plundered,
and all who prey on you I will make a prey.
For I will restore health to you,
and your wounds I will heal,
declares the Lord,
because they have called you an outcast:
It is Zion, for whom no one cares!’
These 14,000 and growing Latinos marching on the USA are political dynamite to President Trump. Back in April-MAy 2018, 80 asylum seekers marched to the USA border and crossed over and were detained. If these 14,000 get across the border then there will be millions more in the next march. The USA will not be able to employ 1 million people and they will become a severe drain on the welfare system and will turn to crime to support themselves. This is a deadly wound that is growing worse.
Hello Grandpa Joe,
Shalom from The Great Mountain.
Here you wrote the following “Count the years from June 1972 when the UNEP was made into a soft law. Count out 49 of them as that is what Daniel 9 is telling you. That this covenant would last one week, one shabua, one 49 year period of time. That brings you to the year 2020. June 2020 is Shavuot.”
Each time I add 49 years to the year 1972 I always come to the year 2021 and not the year 2020.
Could you please explain
Shabbat Shalom George the key that you missed is that I told you to count, not add. When you do the actual counting from 1972 counting that year inclusively you arrive at 2020. But when you add 49 to 1972 you will always end up at 2021. You must do the actual counting. Use the charts we have of the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles and count from 1972. 1972 is then the first year as you are counting. Hope that helps.
Thank You Joe for your reply to my question.
Fully understood what you mean about the difference of counting to and the adding to.
I am going to expand on this very informative newsletter you wrote, and I will send it to all those on my email list of which some of them are leaders of the so called Church of God. Unfortunately so far my messages fell on deaf ears and blind eyes.
Bless you Joe for your weekly informative and uplifting newsletters.
George Nicknamed “The SpitFire”
For the “completion” of a period of time, one must remember to include the the initial time period. Think of it like counting the days in a week from Sunday to Saturday. You instinctively know that it is 7 days by counting inclusively. However, if you mathematically subtract Day 1 (Sunday) from from Day 7 (Saturday), then you would mistakenly have a math problem of 7 – 1 = 6 instead of a seven day week.
Mathematically, this is the counting “zero” issue, as I’ll attempt to show below:
10 – 0 = 10
However counting inclusively from zero instead, there are 11 numbers:
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
2020 – 1972 = 48
However, counting inclusively from the original year, there are 49 years:
1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978,
1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985,
1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992,
1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999,
2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006,
2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013,
2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020
Greetings Sightedmoon family,
What an intence week we have had for prophesy in the news. I was very inspired by it. Not that I like to see people suffer during war or because of weather events or from UN policy. No it is because again this week Yehovah has led me to study the very things covered in this Newsleter. That is the very thing that helps me coninue in this path. These are the very truths we need to use to reach out to those whom Yehovah puts in our paths as everyone is talking about these prophetic events whether they understand why yet or not. Gave me chills reading the chatter on the MeWe sightedmoon group seeing I was not the only one to mention this sort of thing this week. Yehovah is unifying us in mind and spirit. Amazing and inspiring.
Amo 3:1 Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying,
Amo 3:2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
Amo 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
Amo 3:4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?
Amo 3:5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?
Amo 3:6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Amo 3:8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
Just want mewntion and thank Pauline and Jan for their work I been seeing on the social media sites. Everyone should really join in the conversation as it been a fun time.
Thanks always to Mr. Dumond for another great article, and James and his Burindi counterparts lol, Aike and everyone that helps them do the work they are doing so selflessly. You are real examples of what we all need to be doing in our lives. Putting Yehovah first.
Love out to all the brethren from Truro, NS, Canada,
Shabbat Shalom all
Excellent newsletter and thanks for including so many things for reference. Times are getting scary. Comfort in these verses knowing their plans will not succeed as they think. In fact, it will be fun to see how Yehovah upsets all their plans, which began with Hillary’s defeat. They scheme, plot, lie, destroy, manufacture crisis, and no longer hide what they do and yet half of the population is blind to it.
Glenn Beck had a program in 2010 about Cap & Trade, another name for the Carbon Tax. It was mind blowing to see the political connections in which then Senator Obama was actively involved in giving Illinois taxpayer grant money to the organizations who worked to get it passed and then no surprise the DNC lifted him up as President. It was so good I spent all day drawing the chart of connections. Only part 1 is still on u-tube. Have to subscribe to see the full program now. As often as these organizations change names and spawn a dozen more, the money trail will be even more convoluted then it was then. I should photocopy it for you.
