Wisdom, Pearls and Almonds

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Shalom Royal Family of Yehovah,


Shabbat Zoom Meeting

There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on the Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our YouTube channel.

What are we doing and why do we teach this way?

We are going to discuss both sides of an issue and then let you choose. It is the work of the Ruach (Spirit) to direct and to teach you.

The medieval commentator Rashi wrote that the Hebrew word for wrestle (avek) implies that Jacob was “tied”, for the same word is used to describe knotted fringes in a Jewish prayer shawl, the tzitzityot. Rashi says, “thus is the manner of two people who struggle to overthrow each other, that one embraces the other and knots him with his arms”.

Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle. We are Wrestling with Yehovah as we grapple with His Word. It is an intimate act, symbolizing a relationship in which Yehovah and I and you are bound together. My wrestling is a struggle to discover what Yehovah expects of us, and we are “tied” to the One who assists us in that struggle.

Today, many say Israel means “Champion of God”, or better — the “Wrestler of God”.

Our Torah sessions each Shabbat teach you and encouraged you to constantly challenge, question, argue against, as well as view alternative views and explanations of the Word. In other words, we are to “wrestle with the Word” to get to the truth. Jews worldwide believe that you need to wrestle with the Word and constantly challenge Dogma, Theology, and views or else you will never get to the Truth.

We are not like most churches where “The preacher talks and everyone listens.” We encourage everyone to participate, to question and to contribute what they know on the subject being discussed. We want you to be a champion wrestler of the Word of Yehovah. We want you to wear the title of Israel, knowing that you not only know but are capable to explain why you know the Torah to be true with logic and facts.

We have a few rules though. Let others talk and listen. There is no discussion about UFO’s Nephilim, Vaccines or conspiracy-type subjects. We have people from around the world with different world views. Not everyone cares who is the President of any particular country. Treat each other with respect as Fellow wrestlers of the word. Some of our subjects are hard to understand and require you to be mature and if you do not know, then listen to gain knowledge and understanding and hopefully wisdom. The very things you are commanded to ask Yehovah for and He gives to those who ask.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.

We start off with some music and then some prayers and it’s as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.

Sabbath November 6,  2021, the room will be open at 12:30 PM Eastern with singing and prayers until about 1:15 PM. You are all welcome to join and watch. It is not recorded. We will have our afternoon service after this. You are welcome to come and join us before during and after we are off the air.

We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.

Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Septennial Torah Portion

If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 5th year which is the 5th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to November 6, 2021, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about

Exodus 12

1 Kings 20

Ps 119:75-131

John 1

If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.

 


Hail & Heat

Exo 9:18  Behold! Tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as has not been in Egypt since the foundation of it even until now!

Do you ever consider just how devastating this event was and what it looks like? We can now show you. This was posted November 2, 2021, and is from South Africa.

An Eastern Cape farmer, left devastated after a lethal hailstorm killed hundreds of ostriches on his farm, is now being investigated by the NSPCA

We also have this video from Bolivia also on November 2, 2021.

A huge hail storm and heavy rains collapsed the streets and avenues of the Bolivian city of Tarija, after a strong heat wave. In a short time, 5,000 tons of ice were accumulated, reaching between 20 and 60 centimeters in height, which prevented the circulation of vehicles.

On the BBC News, last Sabbath was a news story about just how hot it is in Kuwait. Yes it gets hot in Kuwait, everyone knows that. But what they do not know is that after 2016 it has been getting above 50 degrees C and staying there for days now much more often.

I want to bring these major weather events to your attention so that you are aware of what Yehovah is doing around the world. It is not climate change nor global warming. It is Yehovah acting out in His wrath. Those who are denying these truths are denying Yehovah is doing anything,

The world is watching COP26 in Glasgow Scotland hoping the leaders of this world can come to a resolution where they will be able to keep Global warming. If all the countries are able to keep what they say they want to do and keep the rise of temperatures below the 2-degree mark then they think they can stop the more severe weather events. The red line in the chart below is if everyone stops creating Co2 today. The shaded area that goes above the 3-degree line is what we are already aiming for if nothing changes.

Do take note that all these videos are from Oct 30, 2021 or later. With all the talk at COP26, you need to understand that all the curses in Revelation are a result of climate change. Yehovah is the one sending the increase in temperatures. Yehovah is doing this to man for not obeying Him. This is the key for you to understand.

Those surviving the heat with air conditioners will be in trouble when the electricity is no longer available. Hydro-Electric damns are drying up and are not able to turn the turbines needed to generate electricity.

This next video is Sept 16, 2021.

I want you to watch the next video and keep in mind these two things. 1) Everyone wants to blame someone of something for the extreme weather, for the Camp fire and Katrina. So they blame PG&E or Climate change. But they will not and do not ever consider that the problem is them. Their actions of not obeying Yehovah and keeping His commandments IS THE CAUSE OF ALL OF THIS CLIMATE CHANGE.

2) Now consider what you are told in Ezekiel. And understand Yehovah is removing people from their homes, but the rebellious will not be brought into His land.

No one is going to take up the mantle and tell the truth that all these disasters are a result of all of us not obeying Yehovah. And there is no voice speaking out telling people this. No one except Sightedmoon.com.

Eze 20:33  As I live, says the Lord Jehovah, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, I will reign over you.

Eze 20:34  And I will bring you out from the people, and I will gather you out of the lands in which you are scattered among them, with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm and with fury poured out.

Eze 20:35  And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face.

Eze 20:36  Just as I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you, says the Lord Jehovah.

Eze 20:37  And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.

Eze 20:38  And I will purge out from among you the rebels and those who sin against Me. I will bring them out from the land where they reside, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.


In the Mail

Thanks so much, Grandpa Joe!
I’ve been watching your video “The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel: Where they went, what they are now called (Part 1 + 2)” on YouTube. You mentioned that you would be happy to send out the powerpoint presentation. I was wondering if you could please send me a copy of the powerpoint presentation and anything else that you think could be helpful.
My wife Sonia and I have really enjoyed your YouTube videos on an array of topics. We have all of your books (I think), but haven’t read them all yet. We were watching this one yesterday (about the Ten Lost Tribes), and were so excited and intrigued by all the information.
We’re grateful for all the hard work you’ve put into studying and doing presentations, and for all the hard work you’ve put into writing your books and making and sharing your videos as well.
Shalom from Down Under!
Your brother and sister in Yeshua,
Vic (the relocated “Yank” from S. Carolina) Stinson & Sonia (the Aussie) Foley

 


Wisdom and Pearls

On my last speaking tour to the Philippines in 2018, we went swimming in the ocean while at Digos City. A man came by and wanted to sell me some black pearls. I had never seen black ones before and always thought they only came in white. So we struck a deal and brought them home to my wife. Here are some rare black Tahitian pearls for you to consider.
The pearl, which has not yet been named, beats the current “world’s largest” pearl known to exist: the Pearl of Allah (sometimes called the Pearl of Lao Tze), which is valued at $35 million and weighs less than 15 pounds. That pearl was also found off Palawan in the Philippines in 1934. It is currently on exhibit in New York at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum.
Understand that the Gates to the New Jerusalem will be made out of one single pearl.
The picture above is the largest pearl in the world which was found off the coast of Palawan in the Philippines. It weighs 75 pounds and is valued in 2016 at $100 Million dollars. This one is only 26 inches long. The book of Revelation says there will be 12 gates made of one pearl each. A gate is at least 6 feet high and maybe at least as wide. And the Kingdom is going to have 12 of them. And then someone is going to cut a hole through that pearl in order to make it into a gate.

The New Jerusalem

Rev 21:9  And one of the seven angels who had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

Rev 21:10  And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God,

Rev 21:11  having the glory of God. And its light was like a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

Rev 21:12  And it had a great and high wall, with twelve gates. And on the gates were twelve angels, and having names inscribed, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel:

Rev 21:13  From the east three gates, from the north three gates, from the south three gates, and from the west three gates.

Rev 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Rev 21:15  And he who talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city and its gates and its wall.

Rev 21:16  And the city lies four-square, and the length is as large as the breadth. And he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand stadia. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

Rev 21:17  And he measured its wall, a hundred andforty-four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of an angel.

Rev 21:18  And the foundation of its wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.

Rev 21:19  And the foundations of the wall of the city had been adorned with every precious stone. The first foundation, jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald;

Rev 21:20  the fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, topaz; the tenth, chrysoprasus; the eleventh, hyacinth; the twelfth, amethyst.

Rev 21:21  And the twelve gates were twelve pearls. Respectively, each one of the gates was one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, as transparent glass.

Rev 21:22  And I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty is its temple, even the Lamb.

Rev 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it, and its lamp is the Lamb.

Rev 21:24  And the nations of those who are saved will walk in the light of it; and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.

Rev 21:25  And its gates may not be shut at all by day, for there shall be no night there.

Rev 21:26  And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.

Rev 21:27  And there shall in no way enter into it anything that defiles, or any making an abomination or a lie; but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

I would like to share this next pearl with you. But before I do, I have been considering the many things Yehovah has shown me over the past number of years about the Jubilee Cycles and how they reveal end-time prophecy. I was thinking just how rich I am and you are in understanding this. This then led me to proverbs.

Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

Pro 3:1  My son, forget not my law; but let your heart keep my commandments;

Pro 3:2  for they shall add length of days, and long life, and peace to you.

Pro 3:3  Let not mercy and truth forsake you; tie them around your neck; write them upon the tablet of your heart;

Pro 3:4  and you shall find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.

Pro 3:5  Trust in Jehovah with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding.

Pro 3:6  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Pro 3:7  Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear Jehovah and depart from evil.

Pro 3:8  Healing shall be to your navel and marrow to your bones.

Pro 3:9  Honor Jehovah with your substance, and with the firstfruits of all your increase;

Pro 3:10  and your barns shall be filled with plenty, and your presses shall burst with new wine.

Pro 3:11  My son, do not despise the chastening of Jehovah; nor be weary with His correction;

Pro 3:12  for whom Jehovah loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.

Blessed Is the One Who Finds Wisdom

Pro 3:13  Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding.

Pro 3:14  For the profit from it is better than the gain from silver, and its produce more than fine gold;

Pro 3:15  she is more precious than rubies; and all the things you can desire are not to be compared with her.

Pro 3:16  Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand, riches and honor.

Pro 3:17  Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.

Pro 3:18  She is a tree of life to those who lay hold upon her; and happy is everyone who keeps her.

Pro 3:19  Jehovah has founded the earth by wisdom; by understanding He has founded the heavens.

Pro 3:20  By His knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

Pro 3:21  My son, do not let them depart from your eyes; keep sound wisdom and judgment,

Pro 3:22  and they shall be life to your soul and grace to your neck;

Pro 3:23  then you shall walk in your way safely, and your foot shall not stumble.

Pro 3:24  When you lie down, you shall not be afraid; yea, you shall lie down, and your sleep shall be sweet.

Pro 3:25  Do not be afraid of sudden fear, nor of the destroying of the wicked, when it comes.

Pro 3:26  For Jehovah shall be your hope, and shall keep your foot from being taken.

And as I thought about these proverbs and about just how rich I am from the knowledge Yehovah has given me, I found the following about what is a rich man. Someone who decides to train his brain in the Torah, learn new things, trying to improve constantly, that, is a rich man.
Bill Gates explains why his daughter can’t marry a poor man
“A few years ago I attended a conference in the US on investment and finance. One of the speakers was Bill Gates and in the Q & A phase I asked him a question that made everyone laugh
If He, the richest man in the world could accept his daughter marrying a poor or modest man. His response turned something in me.
Billy
First, understand that wealth doesn’t mean having a busy bank account.
Wealth is first the ability to create riches.
Example: Someone who wins the lottery or games of chance. Even if he makes 100 million is not a rich man: He is a poor man with a lot of money, that’s why 90 % of lotto millionaires go back to being poor after 5 years.
You also have rich people who have no money. Example, Most entrepreneurs.
THEY are already on the road to wealth even if they don’t have money, because they are developing their financial intelligence and that’s wealth.
How rich and poor are different:
To make it simple: The rich can die to become rich, while the poor can kill to become rich.
If you see a young person who decides to train, learn new things, try to improve constantly, know that he is a rich man.
If you see a young person who thinks the problem is state, and who finds rich people are all thieves and constantly criticizing, know that he is a poor man.
The rich are convinced they just need information and training to take off, the poor think others need to give them money to take off.
In conclusion, when I say my daughter will not marry a poor man, I do not talk about money. I’m talking about this man’s ability to create wealth.
Excuse me for what I’m going to say, but most criminals are poor people. When they are in front of money they lose their minds that’s the reason they steal, robbery etc…
It’s a grace to them because they don’t know how they could make money on their own.
One day, a bank’s guard found a bag full of money, he took the bag and went to hand it over to the bank manager.
People called this gentleman an idiot, but actually this gentleman was just a rich man who had no money.
1 year later, the bank offered him a receptionist position, 3 years later he was in charge of customers and 10 years later he manages the regional management of that bank, he manages hundreds of employees and his annual bonuses exceed the amount he could have stolen.
Wealth is first a state of mind my friend.”
_Dr King House_
Let me wrap this up with this parable in Mathew

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

Mat 13:44  Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which when a man has found it, he hides it, and for the joy of it goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

Mat 13:45  Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls;

Mat 13:46  who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Brethren, we are about to release our next book, The Mystery of the Jewish Rapture 2033. When you combine the information in this book with what we shared with you in It Was  A Riddle Not A Command, in which we speak of only three Holy Days in conjunction with the Jubilee Cycles, the wealth of information in them is astounding. The Wealth of Knowledge to be gained from these books is the treasure in a field most of Christianity is looking for. When is the Rapture and when is the Messiah coming. All of this understanding comes from the wisdom of studying the Torah. With these two books, you can know exactly which calendar to use and you will have wisdom gained from understanding and knowledge. And as you will see further in this newsletter the calendar issue is about to rise up again and challenge those who do not know it.

I may not have money, but I am the richest man in the world knowing the little I do know about Yehovah and HIs Torah. I have acquired pearls of great value and have shared that wealth with all of you.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

A Father’s Wise Instruction

Pro 4:1  Sons, hear the instruction of a father, and listen in order to know understanding.

Pro 4:2  For I give you good teaching; do not forsake my law.

Pro 4:3  For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

Pro 4:4  He also taught me, and said to me, Let your heart hold fast my words, keep my commandments and live.

Pro 4:5  Get wisdom, get understanding; forget not; nor turn away from the words of my mouth.

Pro 4:6  Do not forsake her, and she shall preserve you; love her, and she shall keep you.

Pro 4:7  Wisdom is the main thing; get wisdom; and with all your getting get understanding.

Pro 4:8  Prize her, and she shall lift you up; she shall bring you to honor when you embrace her.

Pro 4:9  She shall give to your hand an ornament of grace; she shall shield you with a crown of glory.

Pro 4:10  Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of your life shall be many.

Pro 4:11  I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in the right paths.

Pro 4:12  When you go, your steps shall not be narrowed, and when you run, you shall not stumble.

Pro 4:13  Take fast hold of instruction; do not let go; keep her; for she is your life.

Do you value the pearls you have learned here at Sightedmoon.com or do you treat the things taught here as common or of little value? Stop what you are doing and just go and think on this for a bit. Who else is teaching these things?

Pro 16:18  Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

The tares grow from the same earth as the wheat. They both use the water given to them. I could say they both had the Torah and Holy Spirit, the earth and the water. But it is the wheat that produces fruit. The Tares just take up space and produce nothing.

Mat 13:26  But when the blade had sprung up and had produced fruit, then the darnel also appeared.

Mat 13:27  So the servants of the householder came and said to him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Then where have the darnel come from?

Mat 13:28  He said to them, An enemy has done this. The servants said to him, Then do you want us to go and gather them up?

Mat 13:29  But he said, No, lest while you gather up the darnel you also root up the wheat with them.

Mat 13:30  Let both grow together until the harvest. And in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather together the darnel and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my granary.

We are just a couple of years away from the time that this spiritual harvest begins. It will last for 10 years. Are you loyal to Yehovah and to His Torah? Are you filling your minds with His Truths or with other things? As we enter that period known as the 10 Days of Awe annually, it is time we continually do our repenting so that our names will be found in the Book of Life. Grab hold of that Great Pearl and do not let anything take it away from you.


The Barley In November 2021

This past week Becca Biderman reported that the Almond trees were blossoming. And then she posted some pictures of groves of almond trees in bloom. Those pictures proved to be from another year and were not current.

But then she did find some almond blossoms currently. So I decided to do a little research. But I was alarmed at first that the blossoms were out so soon. I was thinking no way we could have an even earlier Passover this year in 2022.

But as of Thursday, November 4th, 2021, the rains have not yet happened in Israel to cause the barley seeds and all the grain seeds to begin to germinate. Becca did tell me they had a 24-hour gentle rain that was on and off. The earth has not yet begun to turn green though.

It has remained dry for the most part.

I will now provide you with three charts for the average rainfall in the Jerusalem area for the month of Sept, Oct, and our current month of Nov. These are the historical averages but what I want to bring to your attention is the red line where it says NOW. You can clearly see we are below average right now.

With this in mind, it is clear that the almond tree blossoming now is unique. It is also becoming clear that the barley and dare I say anything right now, could cause us to add an Adar Bet or 13th month this year.

If we look at the Zodak Scale for grain crops we can see it takes about 90 days from emerging to ripening for the barley plant to be ready.

Now if we look at the available months in front of us.

Sunday, November 7 should be the 1st day of the 10th month. December 5th should be the 1st day of the 11th month. And January 4, 2022, the 1st day of the 12th month. February 2, 2022, will be new moon day and potentially the New Year Day.

Passover then would be on February 16, 2022, if no Adar Bet is intercalated. If we do add a 13th month then Passover would be March 16, 2022, with new moon day March 4.

I am using Torah Calendar for my dating and I can see they are going to have a 13th month this year. And they go by the equinox. In 2021 we were 30 days different than many of the Karaite brethren and 60 days from those using the equinox calendar. It could be a similar thing in 2022. Do you know and understand the calendar and why we use the barley as our determining factor with its first fruits?

If you miss the first fruits of the barley, then the second fruits will look like they are the first ones. Think about it. How many times were we told by those in the land that the sheep were eating the barley and the searchers had a difficult time finding mature barley? Well, that is because the sheep ate the first fruits leaving only the seconds.

Laugh out Loud, I was going to talk to you about the Almond Tree and I have completely been sidetracked. So I will stop here and let you all think about it and return to the study on the Almond. And I am laughing again as I review the notes on the Almond. It was the first thing I had written about to begin this week’s study and I kept coming back to it and then adding more and more to this week’s newsletter. It is now the last thing I am wrapping up with and yet it is just amazing everything I have shared although separate subjects tie into it or that all I have just said to you about the Barley segues into the Almond teaching perfectly.

The Hebrew word for almond tree comes from a root word which means “to be alert, sleepless, to be watchful, to be on the lookout.” So simple yet so profound is the parable of this “alert” and “watchful” tree. A branch that budded, blossomed and ripened almonds was chosen to represent the watchmen – Aaron and the House of Levi. Its budding and blossoming almond branches served as the pattern for the light in the holy place: a center branch producing the fruit of light with in-grafted branches also producing the fruit of light. An almond branch was used to communicate the message to Jeremiah that our Heavenly Father is watching over His Word to perform it. The attributes of the almond tree expounded proclaim the story of the Righteous Branch: watchful… first to resurrect… white garments… firstfruits… flesh withering in the heat… stricken… beaten… shaken… crushed but not destroyed… sweet, single, edible seed.

When the children of Israel were brought out of Egypt in the month Abib by a strong hand, they were led by a branch in Moses and Aaron’s hand (a branch which later resurrected into a budding and blossoming almond branch), they encamped at a place called “Almonds” (Migdol) and they were brought to a mountain in Midian known as Jabal al Lawz or Mountain of Almonds. This momentous event was to be commemorated forever. Why the emphasis on almonds, almond trees, almond branches and almond blossoms? In studying the cycle of the almond tree, it seems that the cycle of the almond tree parallels the feasts of יהוה and mark the season when the children of Israel were brought out of Egypt: from the blossoming (abib) of the almond tree which seems to herald the beginning of a new cycle, to the harvest of the firstfruits which occurs after a course of weeks from pollination, to the final harvest in the seventh month after blossoming when the seed is gathered in.

The Prodigy of the Almond Tree series attempts to bring to light the extraordinary cycle of the almond tree and awaken the branches of righteousness to its significance in these last days.

Watchful… first to resurrect… white garments… firstfruits… flesh withering in the heat…a single seed…beaten… stricken… shaken… crushed but not destroyed. Known as the watchful tree, the almond tree is known as the first of the fruit trees to awaken from slumber. There may be more significance than just a pattern for the light in the holy place. In studying the cycle of the almond tree, it seems that as the light of dawn is to the cycle of a day, so is the blossoming of the almond tree to the cycle of a year.

First month… abib… swelling… green… flourishing… nitzan… blossoms. The children of Israel were brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the month abib, a season they were to never forget. They were led out by an almond branch in Moses and Aaron’s hand, they encamped between Migdol [“Almonds”] and the sea, they were brought to a mountain in Arabia known as Jabal al Lawz or Mountain of Almonds. Part 2 reveals how the golden, budding and blossoming almond branches of the lampstand in the holy place may offer a hint of the month abib.

    I don’t know if I have enough space to say what I want to say, but here goes. I’ve only gotten through about 3 of the videos at the beginning of this week’s newsletter. You asked how much we value what Yehovah has revealed to us. Neither I nor should anyone else take that question lightly. Yehovah HAS revealed a lot to me, and I don’t have your phone number so I can’t call you. I started a letter to attach to an email at Sightedmoon, but then, I realized, maybe more people than just you need to hear what I have to say, today at least.
    You’ve taken the stance that Yehovah is the one punishing mankind with all the horrible things that are affecting our lives worldwide right now. Others have taken the stance that it is “others”, or rather, mankind doing this to us. If we were in a court of law, I would have to ask to be the judge, because a lawyer only defends the person or viewpoint being defended, whether prosecuting or defending. Today, I realized both sides are correct!!! Please don’t trash this yet. First of all, YES, YEHOVAH IS PUNISHING US WITH THESE THINGS. He said He would. Second of all, HIS punishment IS the result of mankind reaching the point of intelligence to create things and do things against all the rest of mankind and against Yehovah Himself the dastardly things that have and are taking place. And we wonder WHY we are considered in the time of BABYLON being destroyed, once and for all, possibly in our day!!! Deuteronomy 27 and 28, as well as other places, even Genesis through Leviticus, spell it out very clearly what will happen because WE do not consider and perform laws of justice towards our Creator AND our brother or sister of mankind. It is time that people STOP reading Yehovah’s Word from their mindset of former religious doctrines about what they have been taught that is says. It truly is sad that with all the knowledge increase that Yehovah told Daniel about, we have come to this end. Brilliant minds wasted on committing acts of destruction. One of the saddest parts of all is that a lot of those doing it are from the tribes of Israel. So, I guess it IS true, our enemy is those of our own household. I probably didn’t say any of this in the way it should have been said and if anyone is offended by it…. all I can say is don’t take my word for it, GO PROVE IT YOURSELF. The saddest part Joe, is that if Yehovah doesn’t intervene, there WON’T be any flesh saved alive. ALL BECAUSE OF WHAT MANKIND IS DOING TO HIS CREATION!! Shalom. Now, I will go finish the newsletter.

    So what I’m seeing as I read your newsletter is that climate change is not just about our disobedience in keeping the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. It’s a heart issue that started with Adam and Eve in the Garden. HaSatan tempted them and suggested to them that they were “not enough” as they were, they were no longer satisfied with how Yehovah made them, they were no longer satisfied with the job they were given by Him. We were told in Gen 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
    Subdue…
    1: to conquer and bring into subjection : VANQUISH
    2: to bring under control especially by an exertion of the will : CURB
    subdued my foolish fears
    3: to bring (land) under cultivation
    4: to reduce the intensity or degree of : tone down, not being satisfied with what Yehovah has provided for us.

    In the videos, it was shared that climate change had it’s beginning around the same time as the industrial revolution. I find it interesting that our nature is to change our environment around us when we are discontent, instead of seeking Yehovah and making inward changes. I feel like all of the things that man tries to create, all seem to have a negative effect on Yah’s creation. Instead of being content with Yah’s creation, we try to improve it, make it “better”. Instead of being content with the productivity level He created in each of us, we strive to make things easier and faster, so we can spend more time doing “nothing”, or trying to be more productive than we were created to be….thus causing a breakdown in our health.

    We NEED to get back to Yehovah’s way of life, and I see the 7th Millennium as our 2nd chance. Are we gonna screw it up again or are we going to finally submit to His way of life and be satisfied with what He has provided for us?

    I’m SO thankful that you have shared the pearls that Yah opened your eyes to, Joe. The Sabbatical and Jubilee years are SO overlooked in the Yah-fearing community.

      Thank you Lori-Dawn, it’s been a while since someone opened my eyes to a new truth. Reminds me of Isaiah 55:2

    P.S. I contemplated whether or not to write this and decided to just go for it! NOW I know why your Sabbatical/Jubilee calendar and charts are being SO rejected….Ancient Israel HAD that knowledge and yet did not obey the Sabbatical commandment to let the land lay fallow. We all know the consequence of that. We seem to have forgotten the lesson though. Fast forward to NOW. All the tribes of Israel are basically inhabiting every country on the face of the Earth. The Sabbatical commandment is STILL being disobeyed. Hence, EVERY nation is being expelled from their land to a great degree or another. The knowledge of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years was lost but is now restored, thanks to you obeying Yehovah. We truly are without excuse now. Yehovah’s Word has been translated into basically every language on the face of the Earth. I mean, who DOESN’T have a Bible anymore. What was once to the house of Israel is now to the whole world. How can I say that?! All of Noah’s sons knew Yehovah and had His laws too. So, no one is exempt from the commandments. There’s no excuse for anyone to not know now.

    What is happening in the world is done by men, conspiring with fallen angels and their technology, just like in the days of Noah,in judgement of a lawless earth and it is authorized by Yahuah.

    The pearl in the photo was “captured” by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation sometime in the past (2016, I guess). I just wonder how it got to where as you described it.
    I was with the group of people who held some of these pearls, and once offered a pearl larger than my head to a tai-pan, through an intermediary. It didn’t materialize because they wanted the shell (bivalve) from where it was taken. There were still some on hand, I believe, but somehow I felt the group sort of ‘hibernated.’
