Shabbat Shalom Loved One!

Do remember as we will soon be adding the newest DVD/CD about the times and seasons approaching as we watch for the barley Abiv to determine whether or not there will be an added 30 days (Adar Bet) as this could well determine if rockets fly in September or October 2010. Check out the newsletters at:

Last week we were reminded of YHWH’s right rulings, His Moedim- Appointed Times, and how magic is detestable to Him! Last week we were again warned that the Sabbath is His commanded rest and is the first of the Feasts of YHWH Note also that YHWH commands we not appear at His commanded Feasts (Moedim-rehearsals/appointments with Him) without our tithe/offerings. Let’s look again briefly as a review; (Exo 23:12) “Six days you are to do your work, and on the seventh day you rest, in order that your ox and your donkey might rest, and the son of your female servant and the sojourner be refreshed. (Exo 23:13) “And in all that I have said to you take heed. And make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, let it not be heard from your mouth. (Exo 23:14) “Three1 times in the year you are to observe a festival to me: Footnote: 1The Festivals (Feasts- Moedim- Appointed Times) of יהוה are grouped in three, for three different times of the year. (Exo 23:15) “Guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread. Seven days you eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month of Aḇiḇ – for in it you came out of Mitsrayim – and do not appear before Me empty-handed; (Comment: apparently the tithes and offerings are to be used for helping others keep His commanded Moedim- Feasts-His Appointed Times) (Exo 23:16) and the Festival of the Harvest, the first-fruits of your labors which you have sown in the field; and the Festival of the Ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labors from the field. (Exo 23:17) “Three times in the year all your males are to appear before the Master יהוה. (Exo 23:18) “Do not offer the blood of my slaughtering with leavened bread, and the fat of my offering shall not remain until morning. (Exo 23:19) “Bring the first of the first-fruits of your land into the House of יהוה your Elohim.

We also remember how YHWH is going to judge the Harry Potter witchcraft magic- makers of today. (He’s ultimately still in charge of the results for this activity!)-(Exo 22:18) “Do not allow practicers of witchcraft to live. (Exo 22:19) “Anyone lying with a beast shall certainly be put to death. (Exo 22:20) “He who slaughters to a mighty one, except to יהוה only, is put under the ban. (Exo 22:21) “Do not tread down a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Mitsrayim. (Exo 22:22) “Do not afflict any widow or fatherless child. (Exo 22:23) “If you do afflict them at all – if they cry out to Me at all, I shall certainly hear their cry, (Exo 22:24) and My wrath shall burn and I shall slay you with the sword, your wives shall be widows and your children fatherless. (Exo 22:25) “If you do lend silver to any of my people, the poor among you, you are not to be like one that lends on interest to him. Do not lay interest on him. (Exo 22:26) “If you take your neighbor’s garment as a pledge at all, you are to return it to him before the sun goes down. (Exo 22:27) “For that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin. What does he sleep in? And it shall be that when he cries to Me, I shall hear, for I show favor. (Exo 22:28) “Do not revile Elohim, nor curse a ruler of your people. We also remembered about the narrow way YHWQH expects us to walk in and that most the HUGE MAJORITY are headed toward destruction thinking all is ok!-(Mat 7:13) “Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. (Mat 7:14) “Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed1 which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Footnote: 1Or the way is afflicted. (Mat 7:15) “But beware of the false prophets,1 who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves. Footnote: 1See v. 23

(Exo 25:20) “And the keruḇim shall be spreading out their wings above, covering the lid of atonement with their wings, with their faces toward each other, the faces of the keruḇim turned toward the lid of atonement. (Exo 25:21) “And you shall put the lid of atonement on top of the ark, and put into the ark the Witness which I give you. (Exo 25:22) “And I shall meet with you there, and from above the lid of atonement, from between the two keruḇim which are on the ark of the Witness, I shall speak to you all that which I command you concerning the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Exo 25:23) “And you shall make a table of acacia wood two cubits long, a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high. (Exo 25:24) “And you shall overlay it with clean gold, and shall make a molding of gold all around, (Exo 25:25) and shall make for it a rim of a handbreadth all around, and shall make a gold molding for the rim all around. (Exo 25:26) “And you shall make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings on the four corners that are at its four legs. (Exo 25:27) “The rings are close to the rim, as holders for the poles to lift the table. (Exo 25:28) “And you shall make the poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, and the table shall be lifted with them.

(Exo 25:37) “And you shall make seven lamps for it, and they shall mount its lamps so that they give light in front of it. (Exo 25:38) “And its snuffers and their trays are of clean gold. (Exo 25:39) “It is made of a talent of clean gold, with all these utensils. (Exo 25:40) “So see, and do according to the pattern which was shown to you on the mountain.

There are several videos from Michael Rood available at: ( and Wyatt Museum ( that tell about the pattern of the Ark and finding of dried blood on the Mercy Seat where the Ark of the Covenant was allegedly found many years ago- directly underneath the cross holes.

(Exo 26:1) “And make the Dwelling Place with ten curtains of fine woven linen and blue and purple and scarlet material. Make them, with keruḇim, the work of a skilled workman. (Exo 26:2) “The length of each curtain is twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, all the curtains having one measure. (Exo 26:3) “Five curtains are joined to each other, and five curtains are joined to each other.

(Exo 26:29) “And overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of gold as holders for the bars, and overlay the bars with gold. (Exo 26:30) “And you shall raise up the Dwelling Place according to its pattern which you were shown on the mountain.

(Exo 26:33) “And you shall hang the veil from the hooks, and shall bring the ark of the Witness there, behind the veil. And the veil shall make a separation for you between the Set-apart and the Most Set-apart Place. (Exo 26:34) “And you shall put the lid of atonement upon the ark of the Witness in the Most Set-apart Place.

(Exo 27:4) “And you shall make a grating for it, a bronze network, and shall make on the network four bronze rings at its four corners, (Exo 27:5) and shall put it under the rim of the altar beneath, so that the network is halfway up the altar.

Note that Solomon gained WISDOM from YHWH! (Pro 4:5) Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. (Pro 4:6) Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. (Pro 4:7) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

(1Ki 5:12) And יהוה gave Shelomoh wisdom, as He promised him. And there was peace between Ḥiram and Shelomoh, and the two of them made a covenant. (1Ki 5:13) And Sovereign Shelomoh rose up compulsory labor out of all Yisra’ĕl. And the compulsory labor was thirty thousand men. (1Ki 5:14) And he sent them to Leḇanon, ten thousand a month by courses – they were one month in Leḇanon, two months at home. And Aḏoniram was over the compulsory labor. (1Ki 5:15) And Shelomoh had seventy thousand bearing burdens, and eighty thousand hewing stone in the mountains, (1Ki 5:16) besides three thousand three hundred from the chiefs of Shelomoh’s deputies who were over the work, those ruling over the people who labored in the work. (1Ki 5:17) And the sovereign commanded, and they brought large stones, precious stones, to lay the foundation of the House with hewn stones. (1Ki 5:18) And Shelomoh’s builders, and Ḥiram’s builders, and the men of Geḇal did hew, and prepared timber and stones to build the House. (1Ki 6:1) And it came to be, in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Yisra’ĕl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, in the fourth year of the reign of Shelomoh over Yisra’ĕl, in the month of Ziw, which is the second month that he began to build the House of יהוה. (1Ki 6:2) And the house which Sovereign Shelomoh built for יהוה was sixty cubits long, and twenty wide, and thirty cubits high. (1Ki 6:3) And the porch at the front of the hĕḵal of the House was twenty cubits long, according to the breadth of the House, and its width ten cubits, from the front of the House. (1Ki 6:4) And he made for the House windows with narrowed frames. (1Ki 6:5) And against the wall of the House he built rooms all around, against the walls of the House, all around the hĕḵal and the Speaking Place. Thus he made side rooms all around. (1Ki 6:6) The lowest side room was five cubits wide, and the middle one was six cubits wide, and the third one was seven cubits wide; for he made narrow ledges around the outside of the House, so as not to lay hold on the walls of the House. (1Ki 6:7) And the House, when it was being built, was built with finished stone made ready beforehand, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the House while it was being built. (1Ki 6:8) The doorway for the middle side room was on the right side of the House. And they went up by stairs to the middle side rooms and from the middle to the third. (1Ki 6:9) So he built the House and completed it, and he paneled the House with beams and boards of cedar. (1Ki 6:10) And he built the side rooms of the structure against the entire House, each five cubits high, and they were fastened to the House with cedar beams. (1Ki 6:11) And the word of יהוה came to Shelomoh, saying, (1Ki 6:12) “This House which you are building – if you walk in My laws, and do My right-rulings, and shall guard all My commands and walk in them, then I shall confirm My word with you, which I spoke to your father Dawiḏ, (1Ki 6:13) and shall dwell in the midst of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and not forsake My people Yisra’ĕl.”

Here’s wisdom for those who have an ear to hear and eyes to see!

(Mat 5:17) “Do not think that I came to destroy (abolish-do away with) the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures. (Mat 5:18) “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17. (Mat 5:19) “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. (Mat 5:20) “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees,1 you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens. Footnote: 1Mt. 15:3-9, Mk. 7:7-13, John 7:19, Acts 7:53, Rom. 2:23-27, Gal. 6:13. (Mat 5:21) “You heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,’ and whoever murders shall be liable to judgment. (Mat 5:22) “But I say to you that whoever is wroth with his brother without a cause shall be liable to judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raka!’ shall be liable to the Sanhedrin. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be liable to fire of Gehenna. (Mat 5:23) “If, then, you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother holds whatever against you, (Mat 5:24) leave your gift there before the altar, and go, first make peace with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. (Mat 5:25) “Be well-minded with your opponent, promptly, while you are on the way with him, lest your opponent deliver you to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. (Mat 5:26) “Truly, I say to you, you shall by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny. (Mat 5:27) “You heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ (Mat 5:28) “But I say to you that everyone looking at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Mat 5:29) “And if your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. It is better for you that one of your members perishes, than for your entire body to be thrown into Gehenna. (Mat 5:30) “And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. It is better for you that one of your members perishes, than for your entire body to be thrown into Gehenna. (Mat 5:31) “And it has been said, ‘Whoever puts away his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ (Mat 5:32) “But I say to you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the matter of whoring,1 makes her commit adultery. And whoever marries a woman who has been put away commits adultery. Footnote: 1Mt. 19:9, Dt. 24:1. (Mat 5:33) “Again, you heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to יהוה.’ (Mat 5:34) “But I say to you, do not swear at all, neither by the heaven, because it is Elohim’s throne; (Mat 5:35) nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Yerushalayim, for it is the city of the great Sovereign; (Mat 5:36) nor swear by your head, because you are not able to make one hair white or black. (Mat 5:37) “But let your word ‘Yea’ be ‘Yea,’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ And what goes beyond these is from the wicked one.

Sha’ul anointed King!

(1Sa 10:1) And Shemu’ĕl took a flask of oil and poured it on his head, and kissed him and said, “Is it not because יהוה has anointed you leader over His inheritance? (1Sa 10:2) “When you leave me today, you shall find two men by Raḥĕl’s tomb in the border of Binyamin at Tseltsaḥ, and they shall say to you, ‘The donkeys which you went to look for have been found. And see, your father has left the matters of the donkeys and is worrying about you, saying, “What shall I do for my son?” ’ (1Sa 10:3) “You shall pass on from there, and beyond, and shall come to the terebinth tree of Taḇor. And three men going up to Elohim at Bĕyth Ěl shall find you there, one bearing three young goats, another bearing three loaves of bread, and another bearing a skin of wine. (1Sa 10:4) “And they shall greet you and give you two loaves of bread, which you shall accept from their hand. (1Sa 10:5) “After that; go to the hill of Elohim where the Philistine watch-post is. And it shall be, when you have come there to the city that you shall meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with a stringed instrument, and a tambourine, and a flute, and a lyre before them, and they are prophesying. (1Sa 10:6) “And the Spirit of יהוה shall come upon you, and you shall prophesy with them and be turned into another man. (1Sa 10:7) “And it shall be, when these signs come to you, do for yourself as your hand finds to do, for Elohim is with you. (1Sa 10:8) “And you shall go down before me to Gilgal. And see, I am coming down to you to slaughter burnt offerings and make peace offerings. Wait seven days; till I come to you, then I shall make known to you what you should do.” (1Sa 10:9) And it came to be, when he had turned his back to go from Shemu’ĕl, that Elohim gave him another heart. And all those signs came on that day. (1Sa 10:10) And they came there to the hill and saw a group of prophets, to meet him. And the Spirit of Elohim came upon him, and he prophesied in their midst. (1Sa 10:11) And it came to be, all who knew him formerly looked and saw that he prophesied among the prophets. So the people said to each other, “What is this that has come upon the son of Qish? Is Sha’ul also among the prophets?” (1Sa 10:12) And a man there answered and said, “And who is their father?” That is why it became a proverb, “Is Sha’ul also among the prophets?” (1Sa 10:13) And when he stopped prophesying, he went to the high place. (1Sa 10:14) And the uncle of Sha’ul asked him and his servant, “Where did you go?” And he said, “To look for the donkeys. And when we saw that they were nowhere to be found, we went to Shemu’ĕl.” (1Sa 10:15) And the uncle of Sha’ul said, “Please inform me what Shemu’ĕl said to you.” (1Sa 10:16) And Sha’ul said to his uncle, “He informed us plainly that the donkeys had been found.” But he did not disclose to him about the matter of the reign, what Shemu’ĕl had said. (1Sa 10:17) And Shemu’ĕl called the people together to יהוה at Mitspah, (1Sa 10:18) and said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, “Thus said יהוה, the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I have brought Yisra’ĕl up out of Mitsrayim, and delivered you from the hand of the Mitsrites and from the hand of all reigns and from those who oppressed you.’ (1Sa 10:19) “And today you have rejected your Elohim, who Himself saved you out of all your evils and your distresses. And you have said to Him, ‘No, but set a sovereign over us!’ And now, present yourselves before יהוה by your tribes and by your clans.” (1Sa 10:20) And Shemu’ĕl brought near all the tribes of Yisra’ĕl, and the tribe of Binyamin was taken. (1Sa 10:21) Then he brought near the tribe of Binyamin, by their clans, and the clan of Matri was taken, and Sha’ul son of Qish was taken. And when they sought him, he could not be found. (1Sa 10:22) And they asked again of יהוה, “Has the man come here yet?” And יהוה answered, “See, he has hidden by the baggage.” (1Sa 10:23) And they ran and brought him from there. And he stood in the midst of the people, and he was taller than any of the people, from his shoulders and upwards. (1Sa 10:24) And Shemu’ĕl said to all the people, “Do you see him whom יהוה has chosen, that there is no one like him among all the people?” And all the people shouted and said, “Let the sovereign live!” (1Sa 10:25) And Shemu’ĕl declared to the people the rulings of the reign, and wrote it in a book and placed it before יהוה. And Shemu’ĕl sent all the people away, each to his house. (1Sa 10:26) And Sha’ul went to his house too, to Giḇʽah. And with him went brave men whose hearts Elohim had touched. (1Sa 10:27) But the sons of Beliyaʽal said, “What! Does this one save us?” And they despised him, and brought him no presents. But he kept silent.

These Ammonites sound much like the Palestinians today- following hate and murderous spirits!

(1Sa 11:1) And Naḥash the Ammonite came up and camped against Yaḇĕsh Gilʽaḏ. And all the men of Yaḇĕsh said to Naḥash, “Make a covenant with us, and we shall serve you.” (1Sa 11:2) Then Naḥash the Ammonite answered them, “For this I make a covenant with you, that I dig out all your right eyes, and I shall bring reproach on all Yisra’ĕl.” (1Sa 11:3) And the elders of Yaḇĕsh said to him, “Leave us alone for seven days, so that we send messengers to all the borders of Yisra’ĕl. And then, if there is no one to save us, we shall come out to you.” (1Sa 11:4) And the messengers came to Giḇʽah of Sha’ul and spoke the words in the hearing of the people. And all the people lifted up their voices and wept. (1Sa 11:5) And look, Sha’ul was coming behind the herd from the field. And Sha’ul said, “Why are the people weeping?” And they related to him the words of the men of Yaḇĕsh. (1Sa 11:6) And the Spirit of Elohim came upon Sha’ul mightily as he heard these words, and his displeasure burned greatly. (1Sa 11:7) And he took a yoke of cattle and cut them in pieces, and sent them throughout all the border of Yisra’ĕl by the hands of messengers, saying, “Whoever does not go out with Sha’ul and Shemu’ĕl to battle, let this be done to his cattle.” And the fear of יהוה fell on the people, and they came out as one man. (1Sa 11:8) And he mustered them in Bezeq, and the children of Yisra’ĕl were three hundred thousand, and the men of Yehuḏah thirty thousand. (1Sa 11:9) And they said to the messengers who came, “Say this to the men of Yaḇĕsh Gilʽaḏ, ‘Tomorrow, by the time the sun is hot, you shall have help.’ ” Then the messengers came and informed the men of Yaḇĕsh, and they rejoiced. (1Sa 11:10) So the men of Yaḇĕsh said, “Tomorrow we come out to you, and you shall do to us whatever seems good to you.” (1Sa 11:11) And it came to be, on the next day, that Sha’ul put the people in three companies. And they came into the midst of the camp in the morning watch and smote Ammon until the heat of the day. And it came to be that those left were scattered, so that no two of them were left together. (1Sa 11:12) And the people said to Shemu’ĕl, “Who said, ‘shall Sha’ul reign over us?’ Bring the men, so that we put them to death.” (1Sa 11:13) But Sha’ul said, “No man is put to death this day, for today יהוה has wrought deliverance in Yisra’ĕl.” (1Sa 11:14) And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “Come, and let us go to Gilgal and renew the reign there.” (1Sa 11:15) And all the people went to Gilgal, and there they set up Sha’ul to reign before יהוה in Gilgal, and there they made slaughterings of peace offerings before יהוה. And there Sha’ul rejoiced, and all the men of Yisra’ĕl, greatly. (1Sa 12:1) And Shemu’ĕl said to all Yisra’ĕl, “Look, I have listened to your voice in all that you said to me, and have set a sovereign over you. (1Sa 12:2) “And now, look, the sovereign is walking before you. And I am old and grey, and look, my sons are with you. And I have walked before you from my youth to this day. (1Sa 12:3) “Look, here I am. Witness against me before יהוה and before His anointed: Whose ox have I taken, or whose donkey have I taken, or whom have I oppressed? Whom have I abused, or from whose hand have I received any bribe with which to blind my eyes? – then I restore it to you.” (1Sa 12:4) And they said, “You have not oppressed us or abused us, nor have you taken any bribe from anyone’s hand.” (1Sa 12:5) So he said to them, “יהוה is witness against you, and His anointed is witness today, that you have found naught in my hand.” And they answered, “He is witness.” (1Sa 12:6) And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “It is יהוה who appointed Mosheh and Aharon, and who brought your fathers up from the land of Mitsrayim. (1Sa 12:7) “And now, stand still, so that I judge you before יהוה concerning all the righteous acts of יהוה which He did to you and your fathers: (1Sa 12:8) “When Yaʽaqoḇ had come to Mitsrayim, and your fathers cried out to יהוה, then יהוה sent Mosheh and Aharon, who brought your fathers out of Mitsrayim and made them dwell in this place. (1Sa 12:9) “But they forgot יהוה their Elohim, so He sold them into the hand of Sisera, commander of the army of Ḥatsor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the sovereign of Mo’aḇ. And they fought against them.

Trouble comes – Baal’s and Easter (Ashtaroth) sex goddesses served!

(1Sa 12:10) “And they cried out to יהוה, and said, ‘We have sinned, because we have forsaken יהוה and served the Baʽals and the Ashtaroth. And now, deliver us from the hand of our enemies, and we serve you.’ (1Sa 12:11) “And יהוה sent Yerubbaʽal, and Beḏan, and Yiphtaḥ, and Shemu’ĕl, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies round about, and you dwelt in safety. (1Sa 12:12) “And when you saw that Naḥash sovereign of the children of Ammon came against you, you said to me, ‘No, but let a sovereign reign over us,’ when יהוה your Elohim was your sovereign. (1Sa 12:13) “And now, here is the sovereign whom you have chosen and whom you have asked. And see, יהוה has set a sovereign over you. (1Sa 12:14) “If you fear יהוה, and shall serve Him and obey His voice, and not rebel against the command of יהוה, then both you and the sovereign who reigns over you shall follow יהוה your Elohim. (1Sa 12:15) “But if you do not obey the voice of יהוה, and shall rebel against the command of יהוה, then the hand of יהוה shall be against you, as it was against your fathers. (1Sa 12:16) “And now, stand and see this great matter which יהוה does before your eyes: (1Sa 12:17) “Is today not the wheat harvest? Let me call to יהוה, so that He sends thunder and rain – know then and see that your evil is great, which you have done in the eyes of יהוה, in asking for yourselves a sovereign.” (1Sa 12:18) And Shemu’ĕl called to יהוה, and יהוה sent thunder and rain that day. And all the people greatly feared יהוה and Shemu’ĕl. (1Sa 12:19) And all the people said to Shemu’ĕl, “Pray for your servants to יהוה your Elohim, that we do not die, for we have added to all our sins this evil of asking for ourselves a sovereign.” (1Sa 12:20) And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this evil. Only, do not turn aside from following יהוה. And you shall serve יהוה with all your heart, (1Sa 12:21) and do not turn aside after worthless matters which do not profit or deliver, for they are worthless. (1Sa 12:22) “For יהוה would not cast away His people, for His great Name’s sake, seeing it has pleased יהוה to make you His people.

Fear YHWH is the warning for the day and hour! Obey Him or be consumed you and your obama-nation!

(1Sa 12:23) “Also, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against יהוה in ceasing to pray for you, but I shall teach you the good and straight way. (1Sa 12:24) “Only fear יהוה, and you shall serve Him in truth with all your heart, for consider what marvels He has done for you. (1Sa 12:25) “But if you persist in doing evil, both you and your sovereign (king-president) are consumed.”

May YHWH bless you and prepare, provide, protect and direct you and your loved ones in these days. Over the next few weeks I should have a new CD and possibly a new DVD about the times and seasons and the prophetic times approaching Planet Earth. This year (2010) will be a year of awakening starting around Aviv one and judgment 6 months later at the Feast of Trumpets 2010 for the harlot church who will not come apart from the paganism we have inherited; as He judges His church first- those that claim they love Him but will not obey Him! The following scriptures address our scattering all over the earth and YHWH’s plans to restore us to His plan and place. (Jer 16:14) “Therefore see, the days are coming,” declares יהוה, “when it is no longer said, ‘יהוה lives who brought up the children of Yisra’ĕl from the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt),’ (Jer 16:15) but, ‘יהוה lives who brought up the children of Yisra’ĕl from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I shall bring them back into their land I gave to their fathers. (Jer 16:16) “See, I am sending for many fishermen,” declares יהוה, “and they shall fish them. And after that I shall send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks. (Jer 16:17) “For my eyes are on all their ways; they have not been hidden from my face, nor has their crookedness been hidden from my eyes. (Jer 16:18) “And first I shall repay double for their crookedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the dead bodies of their disgusting matters, and have filled my inheritance with their abominations.” (Jer 16:19) O יהוה, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress (Jacob’s not the Jew’s only- Troubles) the gentiles shall come to you from the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers have inherited only falsehood (lies), futility, and there is no value in them.”1 Footnote: 1See Ps. 147:19, Isa. 2:3, Isa. 60:2-3, John 4:22, Rom. 2:20, Rom. 3:2, Rom. 9:4.

Since we all inherited lies and pagan traditions we can come apart from them or partake in her plagues! (Rev 18:2) And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Rev 18:3) All nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (Rev 18:4) And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. (Rev 18:5) Her sins have reached unto heaven, and YHWH has remembered her iniquities.

Let’s make ourselves ready as Yahshua has paid for the harlot bride once who was doing pagan harlotries and He is coming this time for a bride who has made herself ready, one who comes apart from the pagan traditions that got us judged and scattered all over the earth.

Shalom to your home Loved One,

Remember! Do remember as we will soon be adding the newest DVD and CD about the times and seasons approaching as we watch for the barley Abiv to determine whether or not there will be an added 30 days (Adar Bet) as this could well determine if rockets fly in Sept/Oct 2010. See the newsletters at:
