2 Chronicles 7:12-16, “Yehovah appeared to Solomon by night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer, and I have chosen this place for myself as a temple of sacrifice. 13Suppose that I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send disease among my people, 14then if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 15Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers that are made in this place. 16For I have now chosen and set apart this temple that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there every day.”

Today, we are the temple of Yehovah on this planet. According to these verses, He’s ready to meet with us in prayer. He wants us to seek Him, seek to live in His presence, seek His face. If you want to see your nation or country turn around and place itself in a place to be blessed by Yehovah, there’s only four things that Yehovah needs us to do. First, we need to humble ourselves before Him. Second, we need to pray continuously. Third we need to seek His face, His presence, His countenance, His favor, His mercy. Fourth, we must absolutely repent of our wickedness, turn around from walking on this wicked path that we’re on, and run back to Yehovah’s loving arms. We must repent, or turn around our behavior, or Yehovah has no reason to forgive us or heal our land or bless us. If we don’t repent, we are still under the curse of the wrath of Yehovah.

We continue to hear preachers talk about some great end time revival. It will never happen short of Yehovah’s people repenting of their sins. Without repentance, there is nothing to look forward to but the guaranteed wrath and judgment of Yehovah, without mercy! It seems that believers in America have deceived themselves into thinking Yehovah just winks at our sin and continues to bless us. Folks, we’re not being blessed, we’re being set up for sever judgment.

Many prophecy teachers believe Revelation 18 is describing the destruction of America. This would be a good time to read that chapter. Maybe read chapter 17 first. We cannot continue to shed innocent blood, through abortions and other daily murders. What are believers doing to shut down abortion clinics in your city? What are you doing? I’ve been arrested for my pro-life efforts, how about you? Are you willing to pay the price necessary to see America turn around? Are we willing to lay our life down for the innocent unborn babies? Their blood is crying out to our Father in Heaven. He’s listening to them. Is He listening to you?

Psalm 7:12, “If a person does not repent, the Almighty will sharpen his sword and will prepare his bow for battle.”

Jeremiah 5:3, “Yehovah, do your eyes not look for faithfulness? You struck the people, but they do not feel pain. You have completely defeated them, but they still refuse to receive discipline. They make their faces harder than rock, for they refuse to repent.”

There was a letter written back about 96 AD by Yeshua to the 21st Century messianic congregations of Yehovah. It’s found in Revelation 3:14-22, ““To the pastor of the messianic congregation in Laodicea write: ’These are the words of the Amen, the reliable and true witness, the ruler over Yehovah’s creation. 15“I know what you have done, and that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish that you were either cold or hot! 16So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I am about to vomit you out of my mouth. 17For you say, ‘I am rich, I have had many material possessions, and I need nothing.’ But you do not know that you are most miserable, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. 18Listen to my advice: Buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and brilliant white garments so you may clothe yourself and not show the shame of your nakedness, and salve to anoint your eyes so you will see. 19I train everyone whom I love like a brother, and I teach them how they should live. Therefore, be earnest and repent. 20Look, I am standing at the door and am knocking. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into his home and will eat with him, and he with me. 21The one who conquers, I will give him the right to sit down with me on my throne, just as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22Let the one who has an ear listen to what the Ruach is saying to the messianic congregations.””’

Remember the parable of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16? Here’s a portion of it: 16:29-31, “But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them listen to them.’ 30The rich man replied, ‘No, Father Abraham, but if someone would go to them from the dead ones, they will repent.’ 31But Abraham said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead ones.’” Well, Yeshua rose from among the dead ones, and people still reject Him. It’s mind boggling to me. Both Moses and Yeshua taught us how to love Yehovah and to love our neighbor as ourselves, but we still can’t seem to do it. Even those who claim to know Yehovah, those who claim to be full of Ruach ha’Kodesh, still can’t love Yehovah or their neighbor. Neither do they know how to repent, or are unwilling to repent of their pet sins. That is why judgment is about to fall upon this world. I hope you are ready to meet your Maker!

The Lord just gave me this verse in the middle of the night. Revelation 13:3, “One of the beast’s heads appeared to have been killed, but its fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast.” Now the point is, if there is this great revival of faithful believers at the end of time, why is every human on earth declared to be admiring, worshiping, and following after the Beast, the Anti-messiah, the Devil himself? That word for whole means all, 100% of the human population of the earth will be bowing down to the Beast, so how can you say there is a revival or great spiritual awakening during the tribulation? All I can say to this verse is that I hope we have been resurrected/raptured by this point, because that is what appears to be assumed by this verse. That is not a revival, that is 100% rebellion, defiance against Yehovah. That is why Judgment Day cometh. No one on earth at that time will repent and be saved.


Read on in chapter 13, Revelation 13:4-10, “They also worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast. They worshiped the beast, too, and kept saying, “Who is like the beast?” and “Who can fight against it?” 5The beast was given a mouth that could speak proud words and blasphemies. It was permitted to exercise authority for forty-two months. 6So the beast opened its mouth to speak blasphemies against Yehovah: Blaspheming his name, the place where he lives, and those who live in heaven. 7The beast was permitted to wage war with the believers and to conquer them. Also, authority was given to it over every tribe, people, and ethno-linguistic nation. 8All who live on the earth will worship it, everyone whose name was not written, since the creation of the world, in The Book of Life, which belongs to the Lamb, who had been slaughtered. 9If anyone has an ear, let him listen. 10If anyone is to be taken into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with a sword, with a sword he will be killed. Here is a call for patient endurance and faith for those who are set apart.”

Like Tim McHyde has said for many years, if you’re still on this planet when the mark of the Beast arrives, it’s too late for you. Everyone still alive will be suckered into taking the mark, dooming themselves to the Lake of Fire.


Dedication of the Altar

Dedication of the Altar

Last day of Hanukkah, Tevet 2, 5779, Jewish, Dec. 10, 2018 AD, 7572 Solar

Deuteronomy 27:4-8, “When you have passed over the Jordan, set up these stones that I am commanding you about today, on Mount Ebal, and plaster them with plaster. 5There you must build an altar to Yahuwah your Almighty, an altar of stones; but you must raise no iron tool to work the stones. 6You must build the altar of Yahuwah your Almighty of unworked stones; you must offer burnt offerings on it to Yahuwah your Almighty, 7and you will sacrifice fellowship offerings and will eat there; you will rejoice before Yahuwah your Almighty. 8You will write on the stones all the words of this Torah very plainly.

By now you all have seen or heard about the Sanhedrin’s dedication of the altar on the last day of Hanukkah. I’ve seen and heard a lot of opinions about it, most opinions have been valid but put forth from emotion, many miss the point of what the Jews are doing. Of course it was a mockery of Yahuwah and his Torah. Yes, it was outright blasphemy against the blood of Yahusha. We all know that only Yahusha’s blood atones for sin. We don’t need the ceremonial rituals of the Torah done by the Aaronic priesthood anymore. Those Torah ceremonial laws have been fulfilled in Yahusha. We know that, they don’t know that, or they outright deny Yahusha’s sacrifice for them. But we’re not here to judge brother Judah, we’re here to watch for signs of the end times. Folks, this was a sign of the end times. An end-time clock may have just started, mark your calendars and start counting days.

Sure they are violating the Word. The following are some Scriptures that James Smith showed on his live video of the dedication service. Hear Isaiah equate Judah and Israel with Sodom and Gomorrah in Isaiah 1:10-15, “Hear the word of Yahuwah, you rulers of Sodom; listen to the Torah of our Almighty, you people of Gomorrah: 11“What is the multitude of your sacrifices to me?” says Yahuwah. “I have had enough of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fatted beasts; and in the blood of bulls, lambs, or goats I do not delight. 12When you come to appear before me, who has required this of you, to trample my courts? 13Bring no more meaningless offerings; incense is an abomination to me; your new moon and Sabbath assemblies, I cannot tolerate these wicked assemblies. 14I hate your new moons and your appointment calendar festivals; they are a burden to me; I am tired of enduring them. 15So when you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even though you offer many prayers, I will not listen; your hands are full of blood (includes abortion).”

Hosea 6:6, “For I desire faithfulness and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of the Almighty more than burnt offerings.”

Amos 5:22, “Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them, neither will I look at the fellowship offerings of your fattened animals.”

The mockery, the ritual, the blasphemy, is not the point. Of course they’re not pleasing Yahuwah, they’re pagan Jews. They have not studied Torah in over 2,200 years! They study Rabbis, they study each other. They’re total humanists. What do you expect from lost people? The Jews doing right or righteousness is not the point. What we want to take away from what the Jews did on Monday, the last day of Hanukkah, by dedicating their altar, is that they are now fulfilling prophecy, and getting Israel ready to fulfill more prophecy. That’s the POINT!

What we want to see now is for the Jews to begin and continue the twice-daily offerings on that altar, somewhere in Jerusalem, hopefully in the old City of David, Old Jerusalem, south of the so-called Temple Mount. Like one video host said, if they try to do this stuff on the so-called Temple Mount, the Muslims will start all out war against Israel. They would be wise to contact Bob Cornuke over at and learn where their Temple should be built, according to Scripture. If you haven’t already, I’d recommend you buy Bob’s book, “Temple”. He has lots of Scripture proving where the original 2 Temples stood in the Old City of Jerusalem, the City of David, Zion!! For example, read 2 Chronicles 3:1, “Then Solomon began to build the temple of Yahuwah at Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where Yahuwah had appeared to David his father. He prepared the place that David had planned for it, at the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.” Folks, that is not up on the so-called Temple Mount, that’s 600-1,000 feet down south of the so-called Temple mount in the Old City of David, close to the Gihon Spring, where they can get running water. There is no free-flowing spring up on the so-called Temple Mount. The Old City of David is now the Walls of Jerusalem National Park today. The Jews could build their Temple there today, without having to ask the Muslims for any permission. They already own the real Temple site!! Pray that they have their eyes open to this truth, so they can get on with fulfilling more prophecy. BUT, there is not one Scripture passage that mandates a third Temple to be built to fulfill end-time prophecy. If there was, I’d show it to you right now, right here, but there isn’t one. They only need a dedicated altar, which they now have. That’s the take away from the dedicated service from Monday. The final clock may now be ticking.

I posted a blog a few years ago based on Bob Cornuke’s research into the Temple’s actual, real, geographic location. You can look on our blog for it, titled, “The Temple’s Location.” Or, just email me and ask for a copy, or just buy Bob’s book. There’s plenty of Scripture to show that most of the Jewish world, most of the Christian world, even most of the Messianic world is looking at the so-called Temple Mount as the real location, but it’s only the grounds of the old Roman Fort Antonia. It was enemy ground then, it is still enemy ground today. Yahusha said there would be a lot of deception in the end times, he’s right again. Pray that the Jews’ eyes will be opened, as well as the Christian and Messianic eyes to be opened to what is really going on in Israel this week. It is a prophetic moment in history.

A Third Temple may or may not be built, but it is not required according to Scripture. We only need a dedicated altar in a sanctified area, so we can see the ultimate Abomination of Desolation prophecy fulfilled for the last time. Daniel 11:31, “His forces will rise up and profane the fortress sanctuary. They will take away the regular burnt offering, and they will set up the abomination that causes desolation.”

1 Maccabees 1:54, “On the fifteenth day of Chislev in the year 145 (Seleucid, c. 167 BC) the king built the appalling abomination on top of the altar of burnt offering; and altars were built in the surrounding towns of Judah.”

Daniel 8:11-12, “It made itself to be as great as the commander of the military force. It took away from him the regular burnt offering, and the place of his sanctuary was polluted. 12Because of rebellion, the military force will be given over to the goat’s horn, and the burnt offering will be stopped. The horn will throw truth down to the ground, and it will succeed in what it does.

Daniel 12:11-12, “From the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that causes complete desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. 12Blessed is the one who waits until the end of the 1,335 days.”

Matthew 24:15, “Therefore, when you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the most set-apart place (let the reader understand),”

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no one deceive you in any way, for the falling away comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction. 4This is he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called Yahuwah or that is worshiped. As a result, he as Yahuwah sits in the temple of Yahuwah and exhibits himself as Yahuwah.” That’s the Scripture that gets us excited about a Third Temple being built, but it’s not a commandment.

Folks, that reference in 1st Maccabees is the beginning of the story that ends with the lamp oil miracle of Hanukkah, where the Jewish festival comes from. And by the way, the only place where that festival is spoken about in the Scriptures is in the New Covenant, in John 10, where we see Yahusha walking in Solomon’s portico, during the Feast of Dedication, Hanukkah!! John 10:22-23, “Then it was time for the Festival of Chanukah (Hanukkah, Dedication) in Jerusalem. 23It was winter, and Yahusha was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon.” Yahusha declared himself to be the light of the world, a direct reference to Hanukkah and a fulfillment of it. I hope you had a great Hanukkah and I hope you enjoy your Savior and light of your spirit, Yahusha ha’Mashiach.

Keep watching and praying!

Exodus 13:14-16, “When your son asks you later, ‘What does this mean?’ then you are to tell him, ’It was by a strong hand that Yahuwah brought us out from Egypt, from the house of slavery. 15When Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us go, Yahuwah killed all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of people and the firstborn of animals. That is why I sacrifice to Yahuwah the firstborn male of every animal, and why I buy back the firstborn of my sons. 16This will become a reminder on your hands, and a reminder on your forehead, for it was by a strong hand Yahuwah brought us out of Egypt.

Deuteronomy 6:1-9, “Now these are the commandments, statutes, and decrees that Yahuwah your Almighty has commanded me to teach you, so that you might keep them in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess; 2so that you might honor Yahuwah your Almighty, so as to keep all his statutes and commandments that I am commanding you, you, your sons, and your sons’ sons, all the days of your lives, so that your days may be prolonged. 3Therefore, listen to them, Israel, and keep them, so that it may go well with you, so that you may greatly multiply in a land flowing with milk and honey, as Yahuwah, the Almighty of your fathers, has promised you would do. 4Listen Israel: Yahuwah is our Almighty, Yahuwah alone. 5You will love Yahuwah your Almighty with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. 6The words that I am commanding you today will be in your heart; 7and you will diligently teach them to your children; you will talk about them when you sit in your house, when you walk on the road, when you lie down, and when you get up. 8You will tie them as a sign upon your hand, and they will serve as frontlets between your eyes. 9You will write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”


Deuteronomy 11:16-20,Pay attention to yourselves so that your heart is not deceived, and you turn aside and worship other gods and bow down to them; 17so that the anger of Yahuwah is not kindled against you; and so that he does not shut up the heavens so that there will be no rain, and the land will not yield its fruit, and so that you perish quickly from off the good land that Yahuwah is giving you. 18Therefore, lay up these words of mine in your heart and soul, bind them as a sign on your hand, and let them be as frontlets between your eyes. 19You will teach them to your children and talk about them when you sit in your house, when you walk on the road, when you lie down, and when you get up. 20You will write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates,”


Revelation 13:15-17, “It [the SECOND BEAST] was permitted to give breath to the beast’s image so that the image would even speak and cause all who refused to worship the beast to be killed. 16It also forced everyone, unimportant and mighty, rich and poor, free and slave, in order to give them a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. 17It was impossible for anyone to buy, sell, trade, or barter, unless he had the mark of the beast, that is, the number representing its name.”

Whose label, whose mark is on your heart and mind? We are the proverbial frog in the kettle of water with the temperature being slowly turned up hotter and hotter, and we are about to be boiled to death. Why? Because of our lusts, greed, covetousness, materialism, and consumerism. We want the world more than we want Yahuwah and his life-giving Word. We don’t want to live by his statutes and commandments. We think and believe we are smarter than the devil. We think we can get through this life without living righteously. Well think again.

Do you understand that Yahuwah did not mean for the Hebrews to literally write little Scripture passages and put them in phylacteries and hang them on their foreheads, he meant for them to read, study, and learn to internalize his word and ways so we can teach our children and then we can all live with him and for him in his Kingdom. He doesn’t care whether or not you have a little mezuzah nailed to your front doorpost. He wants you to have his word nailed into your heart and mind, so you can live in righteousness, now, today, in this evil world.

Please read all of Exodus 13, Deuteronomy 6 and 11 and Revelation 13. Get the context, for all these passages are related. Exodus and Deuteronomy help us interpret Revelation 13. John the Revelator may not only mean a physical chip implanted into your hand or forehead. He may mean you are simply agreeing to all the terms and conditions and corporate policies of the world’s beast system in order to buy your junk and groceries. The FIRST AND SECOND BEAST WANT YOUR CONSENT!!! People, we are already chipped up with Debit and Credit cards, even driver’s licenses. I haven’t seen student ID cards, Veterans ID cards, health cards, etc., but I bet they’re moving towards chip-based systems of tracking.

Do you understand that the physical chips are not the main issue? When the Bible talks about statutes and commandments, it’s talking about reading, studying, learning, and agreeing to submit to and obey our Almighty Divine One, Yahuwah, from our hearts and minds. The hands represent the doing of righteous acts, from our hearts and minds. Yahuwah wants your consent to submit to and obey Him, to follow him, to die to your own selfish self. You have to agree to His covenant to enter into his covenant. It is voluntary. He won’t force you. The Beast system won’t force you either! It is just a simple choice of your will.

When you sign up to another social media website, or banking website, or stock trading website, you are agreeing to all their policies, terms, and conditions of operation. You are giving your consent. You are agreeing to submit to and obey their authority over you in regard to that company. So, what about your Driver’s License? My isn’t chipped yet, I’m just a hologram so far. A national ID is coming, that will lead to an International ID numbered and chipped card, or just a chip implant. What about your Social Security Number? What about your birth certificate number? Your immigration and citizenship certificate numbers? Folks we are numbered, papered, tracked, processed, and controlled by an evil Beast system today. We have already been sucked into the beast system, and we may get sucked in further to the Antimessiah’s Beast system, if we don’t wake up and begin to elevate Yahuwah’s word, commandments, statutes, and ordinances in our life today.

The heart issue is whether or not we will agree with, consent to, submit to, and obey the Devil himself as he is revealed to us in this Antimessiah Beast System that is closing in on us every nanosecond of every day. If we are already deceived spiritually and being totally mind-controlled and manipulated by a worldly beastly system today, what are we going to do next year, in 2019, when the stuff really hits the fan (SHTF)? What will be your red line? What will cause you NOT TO TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST? Do you live by Master Yahusha’s Word, or the world’s system words? The Mark of the Beast that is coming will be so easy, so simple, so extremely convenient, who will resist? Do you know why would you want to? Do you know how to? Do you have the inner strength to resist? There will be a great APP for the coming Beast System, that will take you straight to hell, and you will enjoy the ride with your personal AI assistant leading you by your stupid smartphone, until you are plopped right into the middle of the Lake of Fire and are exterminated for all eternity. Well, at least you won’t be numbered or tracked anymore. Happy Unholy Days.

Just saying,

Wicked People Destroyed

Wicked people deceive themselves into believing that they will be all right for eternity, but their destruction is guaranteed, as an answer to King David’s prayer:

Psalm 58:1-11, “Do you rulers speak righteousness? Do you judge uprightly, you people? 2No, you commit wickedness in your heart; you distribute violence throughout the land with your hands. 3The wicked go astray even when they were in the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies. 4Their poison is like a snake’s poison; they are like a deaf adder that stops up its ears, 5that pays no attention to the voice of charmers, no matter how skillful they are. 6Break their teeth in their mouths, Almighty One; break out the great teeth of the young lions, Yehovah. 7Let them melt away as water that runs off; when they shoot their arrows, let them be as though they had no points. 8Let them be like a snail that melts and passes away, like the untimely-born child of a woman that never sees the sunlight. 9Before your pots can feel the thorn’s burning heat, he will take them away with a whirlwind, the green thorns and the burning thorns alike. 10The righteous will rejoice when he sees Yehovah’s vengeance; he will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked, 11so that men will say, “Truly, there is a reward for the righteous person; truly there is an Almighty One who judges the earth.”



Psalm 37:38, “Sinners will be totally destroyed; the future for the wicked man is cut off.

Proverbs 14:11, “The house of wicked people will be destroyed, but the tent of upright people will flourish.

Psalm 94:23, “He will bring on them their own iniquity and will cut them off in their own wickedness. Yehovah our Almighty will cut them off.

Psalm 28:3-5, “Do not drag me away with the wicked, those who do iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors but have evil in their hearts. 4Give them what their deeds deserve and repay them what their wickedness demands, repay them for the work of their hands and render to them their due. 5Because they do not understand the deeds of Yehovah or the work of his hands, he will tear them down and never rebuild them.

Psalm 73:19, “How they become a wilderness in a moment! They come to an end and are finished in awful terrors.

Psalm 92:7, “When the wicked sprout like the grass, and even when all the evildoers thrive, still they are doomed to eternal destruction.

2 Peter 3:6, “and that through these things, the world of that time was destroyed, being flooded with water.

Proverbs 10:29, “The way of Yehovah protects those who have integrity, but it is destruction for the wicked.

Ezekiel 13:14, “For I will tear down the wall that you have covered with whitewash, and I will demolish it to the ground and lay bare its foundations. So it will fall, and you will be annihilated in the middle of it all. Then you will know that I am Yehovah.

Hosea 7:13, “Woe to them! For they have strayed from me. Devastation is coming to them! They have rebelled against me! I would have rescued them, but they spoke lies against me.

Daniel 8:25, “By his craftiness he will make deceit prosper under his hand. He will become great in his own mind. He will unexpectedly destroy many people. He will even rise up against the King of kings, and he will be broken, but not by any human hand.

Philippians 1:28, “And do not be frightened in any respect by those who are your opponents. This is a sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and this from Yehovah.

1 Timothy 6:9, “Now those who want to become wealthy fall into temptation, into a trap. They fall into many foolish and harmful passions, and into whatever else makes people sink into ruin and destruction.

Romans 9:22, “What if Yehovah, who is willing to show his wrath and to make his power known, endured with much patience containers of wrath prepared for destruction?

Philippians 3:19, “Their destiny is destruction. For their god is their stomach, and their pride is in their shame. They think about earthly things.

2 Thessalonians 1:9, “They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power.

2 Timothy 2:14, “Keep reminding them of these things. Warn them before Yehovah not to quarrel about words. Because of this there is nothing useful. Because of this there is destruction for those who listen.

2 Peter 2:3, “With greediness they will make a profit off of you with deceptive words. Their condemnation does not delay for long; their destruction does not sleep.

2 Peter 2:12, “But these mindless animals are naturally made for capture and destruction. They do not know what they insult. They will be destroyed.

2 Peter 3:7, “But now the heavens and the earth are reserved for fire by that same command. They are reserved for the day of judgment and the destruction of the ungodly people.

Jude 1:10, “But these people bring slanders against whatever they do not understand. And what they do understand, what unreasoning animals know by instinct, these are what destroyed them.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12, “Then the Torahless one will be revealed, whom Lord Yeshua will kill with the Ruach of his mouth. The Lord will bring him to nothing by the manifestation of his coming. 9The lawless one’s coming will be due to the work of Satan with all power, signs, and false wonders, 10and with all deceit of unrighteousness. These things will be for those who are perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth for them to be saved. 11For this reason Yehovah is sending them a work of error so that they would believe a lie. 12The result is that they will all be judged, those who did not believe the truth but instead took pleasure in unrighteousness.”

The King is coming back to earth to reign over his people for all eternity. Are you ready to meet him face to face? Will you stand in righteousness before him?


2 Thessalonians 2:13-17 “But we should always give thanks to Yehovah for you, brothers loved by the Lord. For Yehovah chose you as the firstfruits for salvation in sanctification of the Ruach and belief in the truth. 14This is what he called you to through our gospel to obtain the glory of our Lord Yeshua Messiah. 15So then, brothers, stand firm. Grasp the traditions that you were taught, whether by word or by our letter. 16Now may our Lord Yeshua Messiah himself, and Yehovah our Father who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good confidence for the future through grace, 17comfort and establish your hearts in every good work and word.”


Turn from your wicked ways today and turn your life over to Yeshua HaMashiach. Ask him to forgive you and to wash you clean in his own blood that he shed for you. You may not have another chance to get your soul saved. Ask him to save you today.

You all know the promises of Yeshua. He’s in the heavenly realm right now preparing a home for his bride and a beautiful marriage feast, the marriage supper of the Lamb, or is it the Lion? Well, while Yeshua is preparing for his bride, Yehovah is also preparing a feast. Yehovah is preparing a feast for the birds and beasts, to feast upon the rebels who dare to come against him, his people, and his city of Jerusalem.

Revelation 19:17-18, “I saw an angel standing in the sun. He called out in a loud voice to all the birds flying overhead, “Come, gather together for the great feast of Yehovah. 18Come eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of commanders, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of cavalry, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, the unimportant and the powerful.

Ezekiel 39:17-21, “Now to you, son of man, Lord Yehovah says this: Say to all the winged birds and all the wild beasts in the fields, ’Gather together and come. Gather from all around to the sacrifice that I myself am making for you, a large sacrifice on the mountains of Israel, so that you may consume flesh and drink blood. 18You will consume the flesh of warriors and drink the blood of the princes of the earth; they will be rams, lambs, goats, and bulls, they were all fattened in Bashan. 19Then you will eat fat to your satisfaction; you will drink blood until drunkenness; this will be the sacrifice that I will slaughter for you. 20You will be satisfied at my table with horses, charioteers, mighty men, and all the warriors, Lord Yehovah declares.’ 21I will set my glory among the ethno-linguistic nations, and all the ethno-linguistic nations will see my judgment that I perform and my hand that I have set against them.”

So, when Yeshua says some will be taken and some will be left behind, who is he talking about? He said his coming would be like in the days of Noah. Was Noah taken, or was he left alive to stand on the earth? Matthew 24:37-42, “As the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38For as in those days before The Flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark,39and they knew nothing until The Flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 40Then two men will be in a field, one will be taken, and one will be left. 41Two women will be grinding with a mill, one will be taken, and one will be left. 42Therefore, be on your guard, for you do not know at what hour your Lord will come.” Notice that it was the wicked lost folks who were taken away in judgment. This teaching is repeated in Luke 17:34-37, “I tell you, in that night there will be two people in one bed. One will be taken, and the other will be left. 35There will be two women grinding together. One will be taken, and the other will be left. 36There will be two in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 37They asked him, “Where to, Lord?” And he said to them, “Where there is a body, there will the vultures also be gathered together.””

Right here in Luke 17:37, Yeshua gives us the answer to where those go who are taken in judgment. They are executed and feasted upon by the birds of the sky and the wild beasts of the earth. Yeshua was alluding to his Father Yehovah’s end time feast he’s preparing for the animals of the earth.

What we conclude from the Master’s teaching in these passages is that the ones taken are taken to death in judgment. The wicked will be taken to final death in the lake of fire. People, you want to be left behind. These passages are not talking about a rapture, but about the great end time harvest of the wicked to final judgment in the lake of fire. You don’t want to be taken in judgment.

I want you to know that what we are about to discuss is good news. We are soon to see the really bad news, but after the bad news comes the good news of the Kingdom of Yehovah. Rejoice remnant saints, he’s about to give you the Kingdom!

Matthew 24:36-39, “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37As the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38For as in those days before The Flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39and they knew nothing until The Flood came and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

Yeshua told us to look into Noah and the Great Flood for insights on the end times. So, let’s go back about 5,000 years and check out an interesting point or two.

Genesis 7:11-12, “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second lunar month, on the seventeenth day of the lunar month, on the same day, all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12The rain began and fell on the earth for forty days and forty nights.”

Two keys to understanding the end times are revealed in these two verses. First, let’s get our time frame in mind. Yeshua said no one would know the day or hour of his return, but we can certainly know the season. Yeshua fulfilled the Spring Feasts at his first coming; he will fulfill the Fall Feasts at his second coming. Now take a look at the time of year when Noah’s Flood occurred: the second lunar month, on the 17th day of the second lunar month, in approximately 3122 BC. Yehovah did not give Moses our current religious biblical lunar calendar until the year of the Exodus, some 1,638 years AFTER Noah’s Flood, in 1484 BC. The ancient Hebrews in Noah’s day were using a Tishri reckoned lunar calendar. In other words, the first lunar month of the original Hebrew calendar year was Tishri, not Nisan. Yehovah told Moses to begin his year on Nisan, or Abib 1. So, when we see Noah going into the Ark in the 2nd lunar month on the 17th day of the 2nd lunar month, Noah meant the lunar month AFTER Tishri in the fall of the year, not the 2nd month in the spring of the year. What we know as the 8th month of our religious Hebrew biblical lunar calendar year, the month of Cheshvan (or Bul), on a Nisan reckoning, Noah knew as the 2nd lunar month of his perfect 360-day lunar year, Tishri reckoning. So, what am I saying? Yeshua, in Matthew 24:36-39, is pointing us to the season of his return, in the fall of the year!

So, what is the second key found in Genesis 7:12? THE RAIN BEGAN!! What rain falls in the autumn of the year in Israel? The former rain! You hear many preachers and teachers talking about how they expect a great revival in the end times, they expect another outpouring of the latter rain, but the latter rain refers to the spring of the year. It’s major fulfillment already happened at Pentecost in 30 AD. Of course, Shavuot had been happening every year for about 1,500 years by the time Yeshua resurrected, but in Acts 2:16-21, Peter made it clear that Pentecost 30 AD was a fulfillment of Joel 2:28-32. It could happen again, but I don’t believe that’s on the end times agenda. What is on the end times agenda is the former rain, the judgment rain of Noah! Final death and total destruction of rebellious mankind.

The only revival, or spiritual awakening, that I see happening in the end times, is the awakening of Yeshua’s brethren, the Jews, the Hebrews. Read all of Zechariah 12, but let’s focus on verse 10 right now, “But I will pour out a spirit of compassion and pleading on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so they will look on me, the one they have pierced. They will mourn for me, as one mourns for an only son; they will bitterly lament for him like those who lament the death of a firstborn son.”

The Jews are going to see Yeshua in person when he returns, and many of them will recognize him as their Messiah and get saved at that moment. Did not Paul say there is still hope for the salvation of the Jews? Please read all of Romans chapters 9, 10, and 11, but let’s look especially at chapter 11, verse 26, “Thus in this manner (by grace through faith in Yeshua) all Israel will be saved, just as it is written: “Out of Zion will come the Deliverer. He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.” There is your end time revival, or spiritual awakening. Now, look back at verses 21-22, “For if Yehovah did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 22Look, then, at the kind actions and the severity of Yehovah. On the one hand, severity came on the Jews who fell. But on the other hand, Yehovah’s kindness comes on you, if you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.” How many non-Jewish people are continuing in Yehovah’s kindness by obeying Yehovah’s commandments, laws, and Torah instructions regarding the 7th-day Sabbath, or His annual Feasts? How can you believe you are walking in Yehovah’s kindness when you are in outright rebellion against His very Word? You are self-deceived. As a non-Jewish wild-olive branch you can be broken off, just like the Jews were broken off their very own natural olive tree. If you want to see revival, a spiritual awakening, repent right now, today, of your wicked ways and rebellion against Yehovah’s Torah. Yehovah promised healing if his people will repent, 2 Chronicles 7:13-15, “Suppose that I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send disease among my people, 14then if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land. 15Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers that are made in this place.” Yehovah will honor his promise if we will honor him by repenting of our wickedness and evil rebellion against him and his word.

Oh, there is a harvest coming alright, it’s a harvest of the wicked grapes into the winepress of Yehovah’s wrath! I hope you’re not one of the rebel grapes. Revelation 14:14-20, “I looked, and there was a white cloud. Seated on the cloud was one like a Son Of Man. He had a golden crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15Then another angel came out of the temple and called with a loud voice to the one sitting on the cloud: “Take your sickle and start to reap. For the time to reap has come, since the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16Then the one who was sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested. 17Another angel came out from the temple in heaven; he also had a sharp sickle. 18Still another angel came out from the incense altar, who had authority over lightning. He called out with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sickle and gather in the clusters of grapes from the vines of the earth, for their grapes are now ripe.” 19The angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth. He threw it into the great wine vat of Yehovah’s wrath. 20The winepress was stomped outside the city, and blood poured out from it up to the height of a horse’s bridle, for 300 kilometers.”

Verses 15 and 16 reveal the harvesting of the saints, the wheat company believers, into Yehovah’s barn of salvation. Verses 18 and 19 reveal the harvest of the lost, the damned, the rebellious sinners, the grape company of unbelievers. They face a horrible end in the Lake of Fire, where they will be annihilated, exterminated, caused to go extinct from life, for eternity. The fire burns forever, but the lost are totally destroyed to nothingness, like with a bug zapper. No chance at eternal life after that.


Read all of chapters 14 and 19, but it is stated again in 19:15, “Out of his mouth goes a sharp sword with which he strikes down the ethno-linguistic nations, and he will rule them with an iron rod. He tramples in the winepress of the fury of the wrath of Yehovah Almighty.”


A terrible end is coming for the lost, rebellious humans of this world. Yehovah is sick of sin and is ready to make an end of it. Unfortunately for sinners, they go to hellfire with their sin, but their final destruction is instantaneous annihilation, extermination, and extinction. The end of life total destruction of your spirit, soul, and body lasts forever. Repent today of your sins and do not be a partaker of the judgment of the grape company of rebels. Your only chance at eternal life is to make the right choice now, today, by turning to Yeshua as your Savior, before he returns to send sinners into the Lake of Fire. You may not be tormented for all eternity, but you will give up your opportunity for life eternal in the presence of your Creator. Just the thought of being sentenced to non-existence for all eternity should put the fear of the Almighty in your spirit right now. That thought should cause you to run to the feet of Yeshua and beg his forgiveness and ask him to save you today.

Feast of Trumpets – 2018

Feast of Trumpets

(Zikron Teruah, memorial of blowing)

Yom Teruah

(Day of Blowing)

From Batya Wootten’s book, Israel’s Feasts and their Fullness

All Scripture taken from the Son Of Man Bible, SOMB.bblx e-Sword module. Original work at

Part 1

John 1:14-18, “And the Word became flesh and lived among us. We have seen his glory, glory as of the one and only born of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified about him and cried out, saying, “This was the one of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is more than me, for he was before me.’” 16 For from his fullness we have all received grace after grace. 17 For the Torah was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Yeshua Messiah. 18 No one has seen Yehovah at any time. The only begotten Son, who is at the side of the Father, he has made him known.

Yehovah told Moses on the mountain in Exodus 33:20, “… “You may not see my face, for no one can see me and live.””

Paul said it this way in 1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see indirectly in a mirror, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I have been fully known.

The Feast of Trumpets is going to introduce an age where we will see Yeshua, our Messiah, face to face and live to tell about it. Listen to what Yeshua says about it in John 14, “Do not let your heart be troubled. You believe in Yehovah, believe also in me. 2 In the house of my Father are many rooms. If it were not so, I would have told you, for I am going to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come once more and receive you to myself, so that where I am you will also be. 4 You know the way to where I am going. 5 Thomas said to Yeshua, “Lord, we do not know where you are going, how can we know the way?” 6 Yeshua said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you know him and have seen him. 8 Philip said to Yeshua, “Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.” 9 Yeshua said to him, “I have been with you for so long and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak from my own authority, but the Father living in me is doing his work. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me, or else believe because of the works themselves. 12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will do the works that I do, and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, so that the Father will be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. 15 If you love me, you will keep my commandments. (Exo. 20:6) 16 And I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor so that he will be with you forever, 17 the Ruach of truth. The world cannot receive him, because it does not see him or know him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you alone; I will come back to you. 19 Yet a short amount of time and the world will no longer see me, but you see me. Because I live, you will also live. 20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and that you are in me, and that I am in you. 21 He who has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me, and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and I will show myself to him. 22 Judas, not Iscariot, said to Yeshua, “Lord, why is it that you will show yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Yeshua answered and said to him, If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and we will make our home with him. 24 He who does not love me does not keep my words. The word that you hear is not from me but from the Father who sent me. 25 I have said these things to you, while I am staying with you. 26 However, the Counselor, Ruach ha’Kodesh, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything and he will remind you of everything that I said to you. 27 I leave you peace; I give you my peace. I do not give it as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid. 28 You heard that I said to you, I am going away, and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I am. 29 Now I have told you before it happens so that, when it happens, you will believe. 30 I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me, 31 but in order that the world will know that I love the Father, I do just as the Father commanded me. Let us get up and go from here.

The Feast of Trumpets is described in a few scriptures, one of the main ones is Numbers 10:1-10, “Yehovah spoke to Moses. He said, 2 “Make two silver trumpets. Hammer the silver to make them. You must use the trumpets to call the messianic congregation together and to call the messianic congregation to move their camps. 3 The priests must blow the trumpets to call all the messianic congregation together in front of you at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 4 If the priests blow only one trumpet, then the leaders, the heads of the clans of Israel, must gather to you. 5 When you blow a loud signal, the camps on the east side must begin their journey. 6 When you blow a loud signal the second time, the camps on the south side must begin their journey. They must blow a loud signal for their journeys. 7 When the messianic congregation gathers together, blow the trumpets, but not loudly. 8 The sons of Aaron, the priests, must blow the trumpets. This will always be a regulation for you throughout your people’s generations. 9 When you go to war in your land against an adversary who oppresses you, then you must sound an alarm with the trumpets. I, Yehovah your Almighty, will call you to mind and save you from your enemies. 10 Also, at the times of celebration, both your appointment calendar festivals and at the beginning of the lunar months, you must blow the trumpets in honor of your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices for your fellowship offerings. These will act as a reminder of you to me, your Almighty. I am Yehovah your Almighty.””

The word for trumpet here is H2689



By reduplication from H2690; a trumpet (from its sundered or quavering note):—trumpet (-er).

I’ve found it quite interesting that in Numbers 10, the word for blowing, teruah, is not used at all, even though that is the name of the feast according to the Jews. The word teruah is used in other passages related to this feast, as you will see.

In verses 3 through 8 and in verse 10 the word for blow is H8628


A primitive root; to clatter, that is, slap (the hands together), clang (an instrument); by analogy to drive (a nail or tent pin, a dart, etc.); by implication to become bondsman (by handclasping):—

In verse 9 the word for blow is H7321



A primitive root; to mar (especially by breaking); figuratively to split the ears (with sound), that is, shout (for alarm or joy):

If you want Yehovah to hear, you need to make an earsplitting sound with your trumpets.

How we honor our Heavenly Father on this day according to Numbers 10: Children of Israel must make two trumpets of silver hammered work. Priests blow these trumpets. Their united sound calls all Israel (vs 2), to move out the camps (vs. 5). Two trumpets were blown when going to war (vs 9) – that we would be remembered before our Divine One, and then He would save us from our enemies. In verse 10, the trumpets are used to celebrate the feasts.

1 – The sound of the trumpets signals the beginning of the fall feasts.

2 – The trumpets also signaled the beginning of the ten days before Yom HaKippurim, Day of Coverings or Atonement.

3 – The FOCUS of this non-agricultural feast of trumpets is to prepare man to meet his Maker face to face on the Day of Judgment. REPENT!

4 – Addresses our need to make it right with our fellow man.

Matthew 5:22-26, “But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother without cause will be in danger of the judgment; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You worthless person!’ will be in danger of the Sanhedrin; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. 23 Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has anything against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar, and go on your way. First be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your accuser quickly while you are with him on the way to court, or your accuser may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I say to you, you will never come out from there until you have paid the last bit of money you owe.

1 John 4:20, “If anyone says, “I divinely selflessly love Yehovah” but hates his brother, he is a liar. For the one who does not divinely selflessly love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot divinely selflessly love Yehovah, whom he has not seen.

5 – Warns us that someday we will have to give an account of our actions. Terms of accounting – our life’s transactions are being recorded in the King’s books of account. The only thing that can balance our evil acts is the blood of Yeshua, by the grace and mercy of our Father.

Numbers 29:1, “In the seventh lunar month, on the first of the lunar month, you must have a holy assembly to honor Yehovah. You must not do regular work on that day. It will be a day when you blow (silver) trumpets (not animal horns).” The word trumpets is not in the Hebrew here, but from Numbers 10:10 we know it is silver trumpets, not shofars on the first of the lunar month. The word for blowing here is teruah, which means H8643


From H7321; clamor, that is, acclamation of joy or a battle cry; especially clangor of trumpets, as an alarum:—alarm, blow (-ing) (of, the) (trumpets), joy, jubilee, loud noise, rejoicing, shout (-ing), (high, joyful) sound (-ing).

Leviticus 23:24, “Speak to the people of Israel and say, In the seventh lunar month, the first of the lunar month will be a solemn rest for you, a memorial with the blowing of trumpets, and a holy assembly.

Sabbath-rest here is shabbathon, a high holy day, from Strong’s number:


From H7676; a sabbatism or special holiday:—rest, sabbath.

This is a special memorial day as seen from the Strong’s number:


From H2142; a memento (or memorable thing, day or writing):—memorial, record.

It’s an accounting day, a day to record things we need to repent of, people we need to be reconciled to, things we need to make right with our brethren. We’re looking forward to the day of reckoning with our Divine One and Father, Yehovah.

This is a day to make a joyful noise unto Yehovah, as seen in the word blowing or teruah:


From H7321; clamor, that is, acclamation of joy or a battle cry; especially clangor of trumpets, as an alarum:—

We should blow our horns, shout and sing to Yehovah today!! It’s a party day for believers. It’s a day of alarm in the sense that it won’t be long before we meet our Maker face to face on Judgment Day. Make sure your life is right with Him. The word trumpets is not in the Hebrew text there in Leviticus 23. I believe Yehovah showed me to acquire bugles to sound the alarm to his people. The U.S. Cavalry has used bugles for more than 150 years to rally the troops. I’m an American, so I believe I should blow a bugle! You blow whatever Yehovah shows you to blow.

This is a holy or sacred day as seen in Strong’s word number:


From H6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstractly sanctity:—

It’s a day set apart to begin getting our lives in order, between us and our Divine One and between us and our fellow humans.

We are called by the trumpets to come together in a public meeting as seen in the word convocation:


From H7121; something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal:—

We are to set ourselves apart from our worldly pursuits today and come together to rehearse the beginning of Judgment Day. Warn and call each other to repentance. This is the day to sound the alarm on His holy mountain! Judgment begins with the house of Yehovah. We should also rehearse our Lord’s return and our greeting to our Great King!

6 – Yom Teruah happens in the seventh month, Tishri, in September/October. This year the 7th month should begin on Monday sunset, September 10th. I believe we should begin celebrating at sundown on Monday the 10th, the children can look for the new moon; we need to spend the whole day together. We could meet here at home at our regular time, then go to someone’s house to be together the rest of the day. It’s a high party and feast day!!

Seven is a sacred number to us; it represents the term completion.

Philippians 1:6, “I am confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Yeshua Messiah.

We want to be as complete, or mature, as possible for when Yeshua returns and for Judgment Day. This feast was designed to help us get there.

The Feast of Trumpets symbolizes our:

  • Call to warfare

  • To intercession

  • To listening for the Father’s voice

  • To absolute obedience

  • To true unity with our brethren

7 – The Feast as seen in ancient Israel:

Ezra 3:1-6, It was the seventh lunar month after the people of Israel came back to their cities, when they gathered together as one man in Jerusalem. 2 Yehoshua son of Jozadak and his brothers the priests, and Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and his brothers rose up and built the altar of the Almighty of Israel to offer burnt offerings as commanded in the Torah of Moses, the man of the Almighty. 3 Then they established the altar on its stand, for dread was on them because of the people of the land. They offered burnt offerings to Yehovah at dawn and evening. 4 They also observed the Feast of Tabernacles as it is written and offered burnt offerings day by day according to the decree, each day’s duty on its day. 5 Accordingly, there were daily burnt offerings and on the new moons and offerings for all the appointment calendar festivals of Yehovah, along with all the freewill offerings. 6 They began to offer up burnt offerings to Yehovah on the first day of the seventh lunar month, although the temple had not been founded.

Nehemiah 7:73-8:13, So the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, some of the people, the temple servants, and all Israel lived in their cities. By the seventh lunar month the people of Israel were settled in their cities. . . 1 All the people gathered as one man in the open area in front of the Water Gate. They asked Ezra the scribe to bring The Book of the Torah of Moses, which Yehovah had commanded Israel. 2 On the first day of the seventh lunar month (Festival of Trumpets), Ezra the priest brought the Torah before the messianic congregation, both men and women, and all who could hear and understand. 3 He faced the open area in front of the Water Gate, and he read from it from early morning until midday, before men and women, and any who could understand, and all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Torah. 4 Then Ezra the scribe stood on a high wooden platform which the people had made for the purpose. Standing beside him were Mattithiah, Shema, Anaiah, Uriah, Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right side; and Pedaiah, Mishael, Malchijah, Hashum, Hashbaddanah, Zechariah, and Meshullam were standing on his left side. 5 Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was standing above the people, and when he opened it all the people stood up. 6 Ezra gave thanks to Yehovah, the great Almighty, and all the people lifted up their hands and answered, “Amen! Amen!” Then they bowed their heads and worshiped Yehovah with their faces to the ground. 7 Also Yehoshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, the Levites, helped the people understand the Torah, while the people remained in their place. 8 They read in the book, the Torah of the Almighty, making it clear with interpretation and giving the meaning so the people understood the reading. 9 Nehemiah the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were interpreting to the people said to all the people, “This day is holy to Yehovah your Almighty. Do not mourn or weep.” For all the people wept when they heard the words of the Torah. 10 Then Nehemiah said to them, Go your way, eat the fat and have something sweet to drink, and send some of it to one who has nothing prepared, for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of Yehovah is your strength.” 11 So the Levites made the people be quiet, saying, “Hush! For this day is holy. Do not be grieved.” 12 Then all the people went their way to eat and to drink and to share food and to celebrate with great joy because they had understood the words that were made known to them. 13 On the second day the leaders of the ancestors’ families from all the people, the priests and the Levites, came together to Ezra the scribe to gain insight from the words of the Torah. (Men’s Bible study together – for the rest of the ten days!)

2 Chronicles 29:27-28, “Hezekiah commanded them to offer the burnt offering on the altar. When the burnt offering began, the song of Yehovah began also (the Hallel, Psalms 113-119), with the (silver) trumpets, together with the instruments of David, king of Israel. 28 All the messianic congregation worshiped, the singers sang, and the trumpeters played; all this continued until the burnt offering was finished.

The song of Yehovah: 2 Chronicles 7:3, All the people of Israel looked on when the fire came down and the glory of Yehovah was on the temple. They bowed with their faces to the ground on the stone pavement, worshiped, and gave thanks to Yehovah. They said, For he is good, for his covenant loyalty endures forever.”

2 Chronicles 20:21,When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to Yehovah and give him praise for his holy glory, as they went out preceding the military force, and say, Give thanks to Yehovah, for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.”

2 Chronicles 23:18,Jehoiada appointed officers for the temple of

Yehovah under the hand of the priests, who were Levites, whom

David had assigned to the temple of Yehovah, to offer the burnt

offerings to Yehovah, as it was written in the Torah of Moses,

together with rejoicing and singing, as David had given direction.

Psalms 136:1, “Oh, give thanks to Yehovah; for he is good, for his

covenant faithfulness endures forever.

Psalms 137:3-4, “There our captors required songs from us, and

those who mocked us required us to be happy, saying, “Sing us one

of the songs of Zion.” 4 How could we sing a song about Yehovah in

a foreign land?

Psalms 89:15, Blessed are the people who worship you! Yehovah,

they walk in the light of your face.

Traditionally, the rabbinical Jews celebrate this day on Rosh

HaShanah, the Head of the Year, since the month of Tishri marks

the beginning of their civil year.

The silver trumpets were described in The Writings of Flavius

Josephus, “Antiquities of the Jews”, “Antiquities.3.12.6.

Moreover, Moses was the inventor of the form of their trumpet,

which was made of silver. Its description is this: – In length it was

little less than a cubit. It was composed of a narrow tube,

somewhat thicker than a flute, but with so much breadth as was

sufficient for admission of the breath of a man’s mouth: it ended

in the form of a bell, like common trumpets. Its sound was called

in the Hebrew tongue Asosra. Two of these being made, one of

them was sounded when they required the multitude to come

together to congregations. When the first of them gave a signal,

the heads of the tribes were to assemble, and consult about the

affairs to them properly belonging; but when they gave the signal

by both of them, they called the multitude together.

8 Some believe Messiah will return on Yom Teruah, some believe he will return on Yom HaKippurim. The feast of trumpets is yet to be fulfilled. Some believe that the Feast of Trumpets is the two houses coming back together as one united voice announcing the Messiah’s return. I believe these two Messianic voices will witness for 10 days until all Judah is saved by grace through faith in Yeshua Messiah on Yom HaKippurim, because they will see Whom they have pierced and will finally appropriate the atoning blood of Yeshua for themselves.

Revelation 1:10, “I was in the Ruach on the Lord’s day. I heard

behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,

Isaiah 58:1, “Cry loudly; do not hold back. Lift up your voice like a

trumpet (cornet). Confront my people with their rebellion, and the

house of Jacob with their sins.

9 It could be that Christians and Jews are the “two witnesses”. Yehovah told the children of Israel in Isaiah 43:10a ““You are My witnesses,” says Yehovah…” Yehovah divided the 12 tribes into two houses in 2 Chronicles 11:4a, “Yehovah says this, “You must not attack or make war against your brothers. Everyone must return to his own house, for I have caused this to happen.”’ Heavenly Father has two witnesses, but we still deny each other and have never sounded our voices in unison. It is only the two unified voices that will summon all Israel. So Yom Teruah foretells the day when the two voices speak in perfect harmony. It foretells the day when “two witnesses” will fulfill their true purpose of confirming the truth of Yehovah’s Word – Genesis to Revelation.

10 Two hammered silver trumpets. The fire of Yehovah refines the silver of our lives before Him. Jeremiah 9:7a, “So Yehovah of the heavenly armed forces says this, “See, I am about to test them. I will examine them.”” Daniel 11:35, “Some of the wise will stumble so that refining will happen to them, and cleansing, and purifying, until the time of the end. For the appointed time is still to come.” Zechariah 13:9, “I will bring that third through the fire and refine them as silver is refined; I will test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them and say, ‘This is my people!’ and they will say, ‘Yehovah is my Almighty!’” Hosea 1:10-11,Yet the number of the people of Israel will be like the sand of the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. It will be that where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ it will be said to them, ‘You are people of the living Divine One.’ 11 The people of Judah and the people of Israel will be gathered together. They will appoint one leader for themselves, and they will go up from the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel. Malachai 3:3,He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi. He will refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings of righteousness to Yehovah.

Our refining or affliction is only for a season. Isaiah 64:12, “How can you still hold back, Yehovah? How can you remain silent and continue to humiliate us?” 2 Thessalonians 1:1-10, “Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, to the messianic congregation of the Thessalonians in Yehovah our Father and Lord Yeshua Messiah. 2 May grace be to you and peace from Yehovah our Father and Lord Yeshua Messiah. 3 We should always give thanks to Yehovah for you, brothers. For this is appropriate, because your faith is growing very much, and the love of each of you abounds for one another. 4 So we ourselves speak proudly about you among the messianic congregations of Yehovah. We talk about your patience and faith in all your persecutions. We talk about the afflictions that you endure. 5 This is a sign of Yehovah’s righteous judgment. The result is that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of Yehovah for which you suffer. 6 It is righteous for Yehovah to return affliction to those who afflict you, 7 and relief to you who are afflicted with us. He will do this at the appearing of Lord Yeshua from heaven with the angels of his power. 8 In flaming fire he will take vengeance on those who do not know Yehovah and on those who do not respond to the gospel of our Lord Yeshua. 9 They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power. 10 He will do this when he comes on that day to be glorified by his people and to be marveled at by all those who believed. For our testimony to you was believed.Daniel 7:18,22, “18But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom, and they will possess it forever and ever. 22until the Ancient of Days came, and justice was given to the holy people of the Most High. Then the time came when the holy people received the kingdom.” Daniel 12:10, “Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.

But before we receive the Kingdom, we get to hang out in the

wilderness with Yehovah. Hosea 2:14, “So I am going to win her

back. I will bring her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to

her.” Ezekiel 20:35, “Then I will bring you into the wilderness of

the ethno-linguistic nations, and there I will judge you face to

face.” By the time we’re done, we’ll be the fully purged one new

man. Isaiah 27:9, “So in this way, the iniquity of Jacob will be

atoned for, for this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:

When he will make all the altar stones as chalk and crushed to

pieces, and no Asherah poles or incense altars will remain


11 Immutable Truths – The two witnesses of Judah and Ephraim have been hammering out a twofold message – the twin truths of Law (Torah) and Grace. We must come to unity in order to fully serve our true purpose of confirming the whole Word of Yehovah to Israel. I believe this unity is found only in Messiah Yeshua. John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and lived among us. We have seen his glory, glory as of the one and only who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (Torah).”

We will come together and sing the songs of Moses and Yeshua. Zephaniah 3:18, “as on the day of the appointment calendar festivals. I will take away disaster from you; you will no longer bear any shame for it.” Revelation 15:3-4, “They were singing the song of Moses, the servant of Yehovah, the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord Yehovah, the Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ethno-linguistic nations. 4 Who will not fear you, Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All ethno-linguistic nations will come and worship before you, because your righteous deeds have been revealed.””

12 In Numbers 10:8 we’re told that the priests sound the trumpets. Well, if you’re a believer, you know what you are. 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for Yehovah’s possession, so that you would announce the wonderful actions of the one who called you out from darkness into his marvelous light.” We will not be together until all 12 tribes are together. The restoration of all the tribes is a top priority with Yehovah today. It must be our priorty also. The great day is coming. Hosea 1:11, “11The people of Judah and the people of Israel will be gathered together. They will appoint one leader for themselves, and they will go up from the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel.

13 The (Re)United House will stand. Luke 11:17, “But Yeshua knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is made desolate, and a house divided against itself falls.” Obadiah 1:18a, “The house of Jacob will be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame,” Zechariah 9:13, “for I have bent Judah as my bow. I have filled my quiver with Ephraim. I have roused your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece, and have made you, Zion, like a warrior’s sword!” Isaiah 11:13-14, “He will turn aside the envy of Ephraim, and hostilities of Judah will be cut off. Ephraim will not envy Judah, and Judah will no longer be hostile to Ephraim. 14 Instead they will swoop down on the Philistine hills on the west, and together they will plunder the people of the east. They will attack Edom and Moab, and the people of Ammon will obey them.” All Israel gathers when both trumpets are blown. Numbers 10:3, “The priests must blow the trumpets to call all the messianic congregation together in front of you at the entrance to the tent of meeting.

14 In the end, no sin is left in Israel. Jeremiah 50:4-5, 20, “In those days and at that time, declares Yehovah, the people of Israel and the people of Judah will come together to go with weeping and seek Yehovah their Almighty. 5 They will ask the way to Zion and will set off toward it, saying, we will go and join ourselves to Yehovah in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten. . . 20In those days and at that time, says Yehovah, iniquity will be looked for in Israel, but none will be found. I will inquire about the sins of Judah, but none will be found, for I will forgive the remnant that I spare. Psalm 89:15-16, “Blessed are the people who worship you! Yehovah, they walk in the light of your face. 16 They rejoice in your name all day long, and in your righteousness they exalt you. The word translated joyful sound or festal shout is teruah, meaning an alarm, signal, sound of tempest, shout, war-cry, battle-cry, and a shout of joy! We enter His very presence with this joyful noise! Numbers 10:10, “Also, at the times of celebration, both your appointment calendar festivals and at the beginning of the lunar months, you must blow the trumpets in honor of your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices for your fellowship offerings. These will act as a reminder of you to me, your Almighty. I am Yehovah your Almighty.

Now we have 10 days of prayer or awe up through Yom Kippur:

Day 1: Pray that all Israel might come to true repentance, that

they might be saved. Pray that they would put away all of their

idols and be granted a new heart and a new spirit, that they might

live and not die.

Isaiah 30:15a, “For this is what Lord Yehovah, the Holy One of Israel says, “In returning and resting you will be saved; in quietness and in trust will be your strength.

Ezekiel 18:31-32, Throw away from off yourselves all of the

transgressions that you have committed; make a new heart and a

new spirit for yourselves. For why should you die, house of Israel?

32 For I do not rejoice in the death of the one who dies, Lord

Yehovah declares, so repent and live!

Pray that salvation in Yeshua will come to all Israel.

Genesis 48:19, “His father refused and said, “I know, my son, I

know. He also will become a people, and he also will be great. Yet

his younger brother will be greater than he, and his descendants

will become a multitude of ethno-linguistic nations.”

Romans 11:25-26, For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of this mystery, in order that you will not be wise in your own thinking. This mystery is that a partial hardening has occurred in Israel, until the completion of the ethno-linguistic nations comes in. 26 Thus in this manner (by grace through faith in Yeshua) all Israel will be saved, just as it is written: “Out of Zion will come the Deliverer. He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.

Ephesians 4:15, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we are to

grow up in every way into him who is the head, that is, Messiah.

Matthew 1:21, “She will give birth to a son, and you will call his

name Yeshua, for he will save (yoshia) his people from their sins.

Pray that the veil will be lifted from the eyes of both houses of

Israel so they will see the truth of Yeshua and cease to stumble

over Him.

Isaiah 8:14, “He will become a sanctuary; but he will be a stone of striking, and a rock of stumbling, for both the houses of Israel, and he will be a trap and a snare to the people of Jerusalem.

John 2:22, “After he was raised from the dead ones, his disciples

remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture and

this statement that Yeshua had spoken.

Pray that as the “Standard,” Yeshua be lifted up in all His glory

and that the world may see Him in truth and not according to man-

made religion.

Isaiah 11:12, “He will set up a banner for the ethno-linguistic nations and will gather the outcasts of Israel and the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Part 2

1 – Have a sabbath rest, blow the trumpets, have a memorial day to record, assemble together.

Leviticus 23:24, “Speak to the people of Israel and say, ’In the

seventh lunar month, the first of the lunar month will be a solemn

rest (shabbathon, a high holy day) for you, a memorial with the

blowing of trumpets, and a holy assembly.

2 – 120 trumpets dedicated Solomon’s Temple at the feast. They sang the song of Yehovah. All assembled.

2 Chronicles 5:3, 12-14, “All the men of Israel assembled before the king at the feast, which was in the seventh lunar month. . . 12 Also the Levites who were the singers, all of them, including Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, and their sons and brothers, clothed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps, and lyres, stood at the east end of the altar. With them were 120 priests blowing trumpets. 13 It came about that the trumpeters and singers made music together, making one sound to be heard for praising and thanking Yehovah. They raised their voices with the trumpets and cymbals and other instruments, and they praised Yehovah. They sang, “For he is good, for his covenant loyalty endures forever.” Then the house, the temple of Yehovah, was filled with a cloud. 14 The priests could not stand in order to serve because of the cloud, for the glory of Yehovah filled his temple. (c. 957 BC)

3 – Ezra read the Torah on this day.

Nehemiah 7:73-8:2, “So the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, some of the people, the temple servants, and all Israel lived in their cities. By the seventh lunar month the people of Israel were settled in their cities. . . 1 All the people gathered as one man in the open area in front of the Water Gate. They asked Ezra the scribe to bring The Book of the Torah of Moses, which Yehovah had commanded Israel. 2 On the first day of the seventh lunar month (Festival of Trumpets), Ezra the priest brought the Torah before the messianic congregation, both men and women, and all who could hear and understand.

Jeremiah 31:31-33, Look, the days are coming, declares Yehovah,

when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and

the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the covenant that I

established with their fathers in the days when I took them by

their hand to bring them out from the land of Egypt. Those were

the days when they broke my covenant, although I was a husband

for them, declares Yehovah. 33 But this is the covenant that I will

establish with the house of Israel after these days, declares

Yehovah: I will place my Torah within them and will write it on

their heart, for I will be their Almighty, and they will be my


Hebrews 8:8-12, “For when Yehovah found fault with the people,

he said, “See, the days are coming, says Yehovah, when I will

make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house

of Judah. 9 It will not be like the covenant that I made with their

ancestors on the day that I took them by their hand to lead them

out of the land of Egypt. For they did not continue in my covenant,

and I disregarded them, says Yehovah. 10 For this is the covenant

that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says

Yehovah. I will put my Torah into their minds, and I will also write

it on their hearts. I will be their Almighty, and they will be my

people. 11 They will not teach each one his neighbor and each one

his brother, saying, ‘Know Yehovah.’ For all will know me, from the

least to the greatest of them. 12 For I will be merciful to their

acts of unrighteousness and their sins, and I will not remember

their lawlessness any longer.

4 – Read aloud before the assembly Numbers 10:1-10, Psalms 93-100. The Jews read Psalms 47 aloud seven times.

Psalms 47:1-6, “For the chief musician. A psalm of the sons of

Korah. Clap your hands, all you ethno-linguistic peoples; shout to

the Almighty with the sound of triumph. 2 For Yehovah Most High

is terrifying; he is a great King over all the earth. 3 He subdues

ethno-linguistic peoples under us and ethno-linguistic nations under

our feet. 4 He chooses our inheritance for us, the glory of Jacob

whom he loved. Selah. 5 The Almighty has gone up with a shout,

Yehovah with the sound of a trumpet. 6 Sing praises to the

Almighty, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises.

5 – The restored, united Israel must war for our promised land.

Isaiah 11:13-14, “He will turn aside the envy of Ephraim, and

hostilities of Judah will be cut off. Ephraim will not envy Judah,

and Judah will no longer be hostile to Ephraim. 14 Instead they

will swoop down on the Philistine hills on the west, and together

they will plunder the people of the east. They will attack Edom and

Moab, and the people of Ammon will obey them.

We must deeply desire deliverance and cry to our Father for it.

Exodus 2:23-25, “A long time later, the king of Egypt died. The

Israelites groaned because of the slave labor. They cried out for

help, and their pleas went up to the Almighty because of their

bondage. 24 When the Almighty heard their groaning, the Almighty

called to mind his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with

Jacob. 25 The Almighty saw the Israelites, and he understood

their situation.



Gene Benjamin II

August 21, 2018

Yehovah thinks very highly of his Word, the Torah, the Tanach, the Holy Bible, both the Old and New Covenant. He has submitted himself to his own word as the authority over his own life.

Psalm 138:2, “I will bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your covenant faithfulness and for your trustworthiness. You have magnified your name and your word above everything else.

Yehovah has done this magnifying, or exalting, of his word. Calling on his name can save you. Use his word to guide your life. It is the wisdom that you need. It is truth.

Yeshua is the King of kings and Lord of lords, but he has made us a kingdom of priests, Revelation 1:5-6, “and from Yeshua Messiah, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead ones, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To the one who loves us and has washed us from our sins by his blood, 6 he has made us a kingdom and priests for Yehovah his Father, to him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”


Revelation 5:10, “You made them a kingdom and priests to serve Yehovah, and they will reign on the earth.”


Daniel 7:18,But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom, and they will possess it forever and ever.”


Luke 12:31-32, “But seek Yehovah’s kingdom, and these things will be added to you. 32Do not fear, little flock, because your Father is very pleased to give you the kingdom.”

Yeshua is High Priest, after the order of Melchizedek, and King of kings. He is making us just like himself. We will be kings and priests under Yeshua.


Revelation 17:14, “They will wage war against the Lamb. But the Lamb will conquer them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and with him are the called ones, the chosen ones, and the faithful ones.”

Revelation 19:16, “He has a name written on his robe and on his thigh: “King of kings and Lord of lords.”” Once Yeshua destroys the wicked earthly kings, what kings are left for him to be King over? Us, his children who should be growing up into kings right now. So stop playing church and start growing into your new role as king under Yeshua.

Revelation 20:4d, “They came to life, and they reigned with Messiah for a thousand years.”

Revelation 20:6, “Blessed and holy is anyone who takes part in the first resurrection! Over these the second death has no power. They will be priests of Yehovah and of Messiah and will reign with him for a thousand years.”

The coming Kingdom of Messiah Yeshua will be similar to the priestly kingdom of Melchizedek. Yeshua will be above all, ruling and reigning over the whole universe as our High Priest and King, and we will reign as his subordinate kings and priests, here on this earth for 1,000 years. This is the Gospel of the Kingdom that Yeshua spoke of in his Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24:14, “This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the ethno-linguistic nations. Then the end will come.”

Yeshua came to preach the Gospel of the kingdom of Yehovah, not just to save people. Luke 4:43,But he said to them, I must also preach the gospel about the kingdom of Yehovah to many other cities, because this is the reason I was sent here.”” Luke 8:1a,It happened soon afterward that Yeshua began traveling around to different cities and villages, preaching and proclaiming the gospel about the kingdom of Yehovah.”

The gospel of salvation issue that you have to settle today is, are you in or are you out? If you want in to Yehovah’s kingdom, you must repent of your sins today and get saved today, before it’s too late. When Yeshua arrives back here on earth, it will be too late to get in to the kingdom. Your choice must be made today, before the Yeshua Advent 2.0. Yehovah’s kingdom is coming from heaven to earth, so you must decide on this side of the Yeshua Advent 2.0. You cannot wait until Yeshua arrives, for that will be too late, the division between who is in and who is out will have already been made. You can check that out for yourself in Revelation 14:14-20, Matthew 25:31-46, and Revelation 19:11-21.

When Yeshua comes back, he’s coming to destroy the wicked and to set up his righteous Kingdom on earth for 1,000 years. You must decide today whether or not you will be with him or against him. Those who choose the Mark of the Beast will have chosen against Yeshua. That will be an eternally fatal mistake. Turn from your selfishness today, turn from your wickedness today, turn from your sin today and receive Yeshua HaMashiach into your life as your Savior and Lord.

Yehovah’s calendar and clock are counting down day by day, minute by minute, second by second. When that calendar and clock finish counting down to the moment when Yeshua is commanded by the Father to return to earth, it’s too late for you lost sinners. The saved will go up into the kingdom of Yehovah in the resurrection and rapture, the lost sinners will go down to judgment and the Lake of Fire. It will only take a twinkling of an eye for the reaper angels to do their reaping thing on that day, in that nano-second of time. You need to decide for Yeshua today, right now, while you still have breath and the ability to make your choice for Yehovah’s kingdom, or for the Devil’s judgment.

Now that we have that settled, let me tell you why I have made my own copy of the Word of Yehovah called the “Son Of Man Bible”. Let’s read Deuteronomy 17:14-20, “When you have come to the land that Yehovah your Almighty gives you, and when you take possession of it and begin to live in it, and then you say, ‘I will set a king over myself, like all the ethno-linguistic nations that are round about me,’ 15then you must surely set as king over yourself someone whom Yehovah your Almighty will choose. You must set as king over yourself someone from among your brothers. You may not put a foreigner, who is not your brother, over yourself. 16But he must not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt so that he may multiply horses, for Yehovah had said to you, ‘You will never return that way again.’ 17He must not take many wives for himself, so that his heart does not turn away. He must not accumulate large amounts of silver and gold. 18When he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he must write for himself in a scroll a copy of this Torah, from the Torah that is before the priests, who are Levites. 19The scroll must be with him, and he must read in it all the days of his life, so that he may learn to honor Yehovah his Almighty, so as to keep all the words of this Torah and these statutes, to observe them. 20He must do this so that his heart is not lifted up above his brothers, and so that he does not turn away from the commandments, to the right hand or to the left; for the purpose that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he and his children, among Israel.”

This passage was actually part of the Torah portion last week. Yehovah chooses those who choose him, that’s how he operates. The kings that Yehovah will set up in his kingdom are those who have chosen to follow him, to be his disciples. We will receive positions under Yeshua, our King of kings. When he sets you up as a king under Yeshua, he wants you to focus on him and his word. He doesn’t want you to love your armed forces more than him. He doesn’t want you to love your wife or children, or pets, more than him. He doesn’t want you to love your wealth more than him or his word. He wants you to love him and love his word more than anything else in his kingdom. He wants you to have your own copy of the Torah, or Holy Scriptures. We live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Yehovah.

It is a humbling experience to make your own copy of Yehovah’s word. He just stated it’s to keep you from arrogance and pride. It is the ultimate breaking experience. Go ahead and begin making your own copy of Yehovah’s word. People will call you a blasphemer, arrogant, proud, thinking you can edit Yehovah’s word. How dare you? You actually will learn to fear Yehovah like never before. What if I screw up and make a mistake? I could be damned for all eternity! But Yehovah wants you to do it. Yehovah commands his kings to do it. Simply obey him.

Well, when I was in the working world, I did not have time to copy the Torah for myself, I never had enough time to study as much as I wanted to, and there certainly was not an easy way to copy a text back in the day. Who wanted to hand write or type the Holy Bible on a typewriter? But as soon as I retired, I began looking for an electronic copy of the Bible and finally found one over at Their Bibles are released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license, so I can legally and freely copy, edit, translate, publish, and distribute my own FREE and LEGALLY FREED Bible, which I have done for the e-Sword, mySword, The Word, Bibletime, and Xiphos Bible programs.

I’ve been told that I’m judging. Well, yes, we are to judge doctrines, teachings, theories, and theologies. Colossians 2:16-17, “So then, let no one but the body of Messiah judge you in eating or in drinking, or about an appointment calendar festival, or a new moon, or about Sabbaths. 17 These are a shadow of the things to come.” We do not have the authority to judge people, we only have authority to judge their teachings, theories, and spiritual fruit. Personally, I do not care whether or not you keep Sabbath on a lunar Sabbath schedule or calendar, or on a solar Sabbath schedule or calendar, or if you keep Sabbath at all. You and I will be judged by Yahweh and His Word. Do what you will. Yahweh’s word will either justify us or condemn us. I suggest we choose life by His Word.

So today, we’re going to look at the First Feast of Yahweh as described in Leviticus 23:1-3, Yahweh spoke to Moses: 2 “Speak to the people of Israel, and say to them, ’These are the appointment calendar festivals of Yahweh, which you must proclaim as holy assemblies; they are my appointment calendar festivals. 3 You may work for six days, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, a holy assembly. You must do no work, because it is a Sabbath for Yahweh in all the places where you live.

The seventh-day Sabbath is the first holiday, holy day, holy convocation, holy rehearsal, listed in Leviticus 23. Read verse 3 very carefully. Read verse 3 as many times as you need to. Meditate on verse 3 for as long as you need to. Again, for the umpteenth time, how does Yahweh specify we determine the Sabbath rest holiday, or rehearsal? See it? Yes, we count six days of work, then the seventh day is our Sabbath day of rest with Yahweh!! Do you see any difference between Leviticus 23:3 and Genesis 2:1-3, or Exodus 20:8-11, or Exodus 16? No, of course not. The daily 24-hour count of days, 6 days work, 7th-day is the Sabbath, has remained the same since the first week of creation.

That word Sabbath in verse 3 is Shabbath, Shabbat, Strong’s # 7676, the Sabbath, the Sabbath week, it means intermission. Take a break, folks. Give me a break, please!! That word “rest” there in verse 3 is again Shabbathown, Strong’s # 7677, the weekly Sabbath observance, a sabbatism, or special holiday. That is why Yahweh included it in Chapter 23 with all the other Feasts of Yahweh. But the way Yahweh determines the Sabbath remains the same, consistently, throughout Scripture, as a 7-day count of 24-hour days, from the first week of creation. Week in week out. Why did Yahweh place the Sabbath first in this list of Feasts? Well, let’s see, He created time, then seven days later, he created the first Sabbath. It was the first Feast, holy holiday that Yahweh created. Is that too hard to understand?

The Sabbath is like breathing in Ruach Ha’Kodesh. It’s Yahweh’s heartbeat. It should be the heartbeat of his children. Is it your heartbeat? It’s my heartbeat, but I’m heartbroken that I’ve only been following Yahweh’s Sabbath heartbeat for the last 15 years. Before that time, my heart was off-beating on the wrong day of the week. How could I have been resting on the first day of the week, when I should have been out working on that day? My life was out of sync with Yahweh for the first 30 years of my walk with Him. Is that sad or what? Please re-sync your heartbeat with Yahweh’s today. Do not delay another week without getting in step with Yahweh and his perfect will for your life. Work six days then rest on the seventh day. Don’t rest on the first day of the week, then end up working on Yahweh’s Sabbath. That is called disobedience. Your life will continue to be a muddled mess until you get sync’d up with Yahweh on his clock and biblical calendar. Just remember, the 24 hour clock was invented 3 days before the sun, moon, and stars were even created! That should be our first clue as to how to count towards the weekly Sabbath!!

So, what are we rehearsing each week on Sabbath? Eternal rest in Yahweh, that’s what. It’s one wonderful way to taste the good eternal things to come. The writer of Hebrews said it best: Hebrews 4:1-16, “Therefore, let us be very careful so that none of you might seem to have failed to reach the promise left behind for you to enter Yahweh’s rest. 2 For we were told the gospel just as they were. But that message did not benefit those who did not unite in faith with those who obeyed. 3 For we who have believed are the ones who will enter that rest, just as he said, “As I swore in my wrath, they will never enter my rest.” Even so, his created works were finished at the foundation of the world (<<< CLUE!!). 4 For he has said somewhere about the seventh day, Yahweh rested on the seventh day from all his deeds.” 5 Again he has said, “They will never enter my rest.” 6 Therefore, because it is still reserved for some to enter his rest, and since many Israelites who heard the gospel did not enter it because of disobedience, 7 Yahweh has again set a certain day called, “Today.” After many days, he spoke through David, as it was earlier said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.” 8 For if Joshua the son of Nun had given them rest, Yahweh would not have spoken later on about another day. 9 Therefore, there is still a Sabbath rest reserved for Yahweh’s people. 10 For he who enters into Yahweh’s rest has himself also rested from his deeds, just as Yahweh did from his. 11 Therefore, let us be eager to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the kind of disobedience that they did. 12 For the word of Yahweh is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword. It pierces even to the division of soul from spirit, and joints from marrow. It is able to know the heart’s thoughts and intentions. 13 Nothing created is hidden before Yahweh. Instead, everything is bare and open to the eyes of the One to whom we must give account. 14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Yeshua the Son of Yahweh, let us firmly hold to our beliefs. 15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot feel sympathy for our weaknesses. Instead, we have someone who has in all ways been tempted as we are, except that he is without sin. 16 Let us then go with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

I’m needy, we’re all needy. We need Yahweh’s seventh-day Sabbath rest.

UNIVERSE LOCKED – Evidence for a Biblical Lunar Calendar


Evidence for a Biblical Lunar Calendar

Gene Benjamin II

June 18, 2018

All Scriptures taken from the SOMB, the Son Of Man Bible, original work at I used their Unlocked Literal Bible to make the SOMB.bblx for e-Sword Bible program. Sola Scriptura, my friends, Sola Scriptura!

Let’s look at the Holy Scriptures only for our doctrine of a biblical calendar. I had never noticed the word “chadash” before. Chadash, as “new”, Strong’s number 2319 only means new, but it’s root word is also Chadash, number 2318, that also means to renew or make new, which is exactly what Chodesh is, Strong’s number 2320 (TWOT1 # 613b), and it comes from this same root Chadash. These are LUNAR or MOON renewal terms in and of themselves, in their most basic meaning and usage.

But even more exciting than these terms is the Aramaic word YERACH or YERAH, Strong’s number 3391 (TWOT1 # 913b), which in its basic, foundational, plain literal meaning is LUNATION!! Lunation means the period between successive new moons. It literally means one lunar month. Merriam-Webster Dictionary, today, defines lunation as the period of time averaging 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 2.8 seconds elapsing between two successive new moons. But we already know from Noah and his Great Flood that back in Genesis, the lunation was EXACTLY 30 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds, or a perfect 360-day lunar, and a perfect 360-day solar, year. I believe the sun and moon were perfectly synchronized at the 360-day year. The planet Mars flyby in 701 BC altered the perfect biblical calendar to what we have today, a 365 1/4 day solar year and a 354 day lunar year. (; But don’t despair, from prophecy, we know another planetary flyby or earth strike will re-adjust the earth calendar back to the perfect 360-day biblical calendar for at least the final seven year Tribulation. You can research that for yourself in Genesis, Daniel, and Revelation.

Complete or full month, or month of days, is just one phase of YERACH’S meanings, no pun intended, but this Hebrew word basicly means the complete lunar cycle, the moon’s lunation! Now here’s a word, YERACH, Strong’s number 3391, that we need to take a serious look at! Since this word is found in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance and Dictionary, that means it’s found in the Holy Scriptures. This is a word we need to investigate only in the Holy Scriptures. We need not look at outside sources at all, but only look right inside our Holy Bible! We build our teachings, beliefs, doctrines, and theology from the Holy Scriptures, not from other books or websites, no matter how intriguing they may be. Sola Scriptura!

Of course, you know one of my primary ways of studying words is to find its “first use” in the Scriptures. Using this Bible study principle can save you a lot of headaches down the road of your believing life. So, where is this word found first? How about right at Moses’ birth, 80 years (c. 1563 BC) BEFORE the Exodus (c. 1484 BC)! Exodus 2:2, “The woman (Moses’ Mom) became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he was a healthy boy, she hid him for three lunations.” Well, there it is, folks, three lunar months tracked and counted by the Hebrew slaves in Egypt. The ancient Hebrew Israelites were enslaved in a sun-god worshiping nation, and were following a LUNAR calendar, the biblical lunar calendar, eighty years BEFORE the Exodus from Egypt. Folks, that demonstrates that the Hebrew children of Israel were fiercely holding to their beliefs in Yahweh, his word, and his biblical lunar calendar! Folks, that’s about 3,580 years ago, long before the aprocryphal books were ever written.

Let’s look at another example of the use of Yerah in Deuteronomy 21:13, the law regarding marrying female captives: “Then she will take off the clothes she was wearing when she was taken captive and she will remain in your house and mourn for her father and her mother a full lunation. After that you may make love to her and be her husband, and she will be your wife.” This is that month of days meaning, a lunation of days, the full lunar cycle, one lunar month!! And notice that this is Moses teaching the Torah to the children of Israel. I believe Moses learned the biblical lunar calendar from Yahweh and his Mom.

Another example is in Deuteronomy 33:13-15, where Moses is blessing the children of Joseph, “About Joseph, Moses said: May his land be blessed by Yahweh with the precious things of heaven, with the dew, and with the deep that lies beneath. 14 May his land be blessed with the precious things of the harvest of the sun, with the precious things of the produce of the lunations, 15 with the finest things of the ancient mountains, and with the precious things of the everlasting hills.” Food plants need the sun, but it is also important for the farmer or vinedresser to know how many lunations, or months, a plant needs for its growth and life cycle. That helps to know when to plant and harvest. Moses understood the agricultural importance of the moon’s lunations in relation to the harvest of crops! We must live by an agriculturally adjusted, luni-solar calendar. I will not delve further into that topic in this video.

The word is used twice, by none other than the wisest man in all of human history, King Solomon, in 1 Kings 6:37-38, “The foundation of the temple of Yahweh was laid in the fourth year (c. 967), in the lunation (yerach) of Ziv. 38 In the eleventh year (c. 960 BC), in the lunation of Bul, which is the eighth lunar month (chodesh), the temple was finished in all its parts and conforming to all its specifications. Solomon took seven years to build the temple.” Friends, sit back and re-read this passage as many times as you need to and understand that the wisest king in all of human history FOLLOWED A LUNAR CALENDAR WHILE BUILDING THE TEMPLE OF ALMIGHTY YAHWEH!!! Notice, Solomon uses the word year and lunation in the same sentence. We know our year is defined as one complete revolution of the earth around the sun. It doesn’t really matter how many lunar months are placed inside of a solar year. You could have 12 or 13 lunar months inside of a solar year. It does not matter, because Yahweh’s Feasts are held in the First, Third, and Seventh lunar months of the year. We can easily adjust the lunar calendar by intercalating a 13th month at the end of the lunar year to keep in sync with the solar seasons of the year. Meditate on 1 Kings 6:37-38 for as long as you need to, but let it soak into your spirit and help you settle your biblical calendar theology!

Our next example is in 1 Kings 8:2, “All the men of Israel assembled before King Solomon at the feast, in the lunation (yerach) of Ethanim, which is the seventh lunar month (chodesh).” So, what does this verse reveal to us? It shows that the most-wise King Solomon celebrated the Feast of Tabernacles, one of Yahweh’s commanded feasts, ACCORDING TO THE LUNAR CALENDAR! This was the day King Solomon had the priests place the Ark of the Covenant into the new Holy of Holies, the most holy place in the inner Temple. Are you now getting a biblical lunar calendar understanding? Notice, this has nothing to do with bowing down and worshiping the moon, it’s about using the moon to mark time, as your personal and national calendar! It’s not about using the moon to prognosticate about the future, it’s about using the moon as the timepiece Yahweh created it to be, so we can CELEBRATE HIS FEASTS ON HIS BIBLICAL LUNAR CALENDAR.

Our next example is found in 2 Kings 15:13, “Shallum son of Jabesh began to reign in the thirty-ninth year (c. 752 BC) of Uzziah king of Judah, and he reigned only one lunation in Samaria.” This is another example of the lunar month of days meaning for the word yerach. Shallum only survived as king in the northern kingdom of Israel for one lunar month, 30 days. Verse 14 shows that Menahem killed him and became king of Israel in his place. Notice, this is still before the Mars flyby and several hundred years BEFORE any Pharisee or Sadducee drew his first breath. The official civil government of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel marked events of the kings of Israel according to the biblical lunar calendar. This is what the Holy Bible reveals to us, not what any outside source teaches us.

Our next example is found in Job 3:6, Job is lamenting his own birth, “As for that night, may thick darkness seize it. May it not rejoice among the days of the year; may it not come into the number of the lunations.” Job was a famous, powerful, successful and influential believer in his day. He understood that the solar year and the lunar month were timepiece measurements of the days of his life. I believe he was wishing that he had never been born. He was in a very rough time of his life. Job counted his months by the moon, plain and simple.

Our next example is found in Job 7:3 where Job continues to speak about his seemingly hopeless life, “so I have been made to endure lunations of misery; I have been given trouble-filled nights.” Job’s plight did not last just a few days, it was months and lunar months of affliction.

Our next example is found in Job 29:2-3, where he summarizes his defense, “Oh, that I were as I was in the past lunations when the Almighty cared for me, 3 when his lamp shined on my head, and when I walked through darkness by his light.” Do you see Job’s play on words? The moon gave Job light at night; just as Yahweh always had been Job’s spiritual light; he wants to believe Yahweh is still his light! Of course, Yahweh is our eternal spiritual light. Isaiah and Revelation reveal he will also be our “physical” light in the kingdom, though, on this side of eternity, we may not understand what that reality will be like.

Our next example is from Job 39:2, where Yahweh himself answers and grills Job, “Can you count the lunations that they (goats and deer) gestate? Do you know the time when they bear their young?” What a humbling experience for Job. May we all humble ourselves like Job, before our great and awesome Yahweh, our Creator and King. Do you see it? Here, YAHWEH HIMSELF speaks of his very own personal biblical lunar calendar!!! Yahweh knows Job must use the biblical lunar calendar to count the lunar months of a mammal’s gestation period. Yahweh’s biblical lunar calendar was not and is not a one-time fluke in Scripture!! It is the calendar of the Bible and of our natural world.

Now, I’m going to skip ahead to Zechariah 11:8, “In one lunation I destroyed the three shepherds, for I ran out of patience with them, and they hated me as well.” Read the whole Chapter 11, this is Yeshua speaking in the Old Covenant, which on that day, he was breaking the covenant between himself and Israel! This is not a month of days meaning, exactly. The word one is echad, so this may be saying He destroyed the three shepherds in one lunar month or in the first lunar month of the year, either translation would work.

Now, let’s go back and look at our final example in Isaiah 60:19-20, where we see the future glory of Israel, “The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon (yareach) shine on you; but Yahweh will be your everlasting light, and your Almighty your glory. 20 Your sun will no longer set, nor will your lunation wane to conjunction; for Yahweh will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be ended.”

I was so excited when I came to this verse, I couldn’t sleep! Read verse 20 carefully. Research it for yourself. I truly believe Yahweh revealed to me the final locked state of the physical universe, when He reveals Yeshua to the world. There is a day coming when the sun will no longer set and the moon will no longer go through its lunations! When Yahweh and the Lamb are the light of the world, literally fulfilled at the end of days. This appears to be after the Great White throne judgment of Revelation 20. Revelation 21:22-24, “I saw no temple in the city, for Lord Yahweh El Shaddai and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or the moon in order to shine on it, because the glory of Yahweh shone on it, and its lamp is the Lamb. 24 The ethno-linguistic nations will walk by the light of that city. The kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.”

That is the day we’re all looking for, when the universe will be locked in Yahweh’s glory forever! I chose the phrase in Isaiah 60:20, “wane to conjunction”, because the Hebrew word is “acaph” and can mean to take away, remove, withdraw, perish. When does the moon appear to do these things? When it goes into conjunction, once every lunation! One day soon, the moon’s lunations will cease. It will be locked into position for all eternity. There will be no more need for lunations, as we need now. We need the lunations now to know when to celebrate Yahweh’s feasts. Then, Yeshua himself will lead us to celebrate feasts when Yahweh desires! Until that glorious day, let’s use Yahweh’s biblical lunar calendar, so we can celebrate with him as biblically accurately as we can.

Now, for fun, let’s switch back to understanding how the Hebrews would have stated the “New Moon”. Contrary to what some teach, the Hebrews would not have said “Yareach Chadash” or “Chadash Yareach”, for New Moon. How do I know this? Well, thanks to my buddy priest and prophet Ezekiel, we know how the Hebrews stated the beginning of the New Year. Look at Ezekiel 40:1, “In the twenty-fifth year (c. 574 BC, Ezekiel’s Jubilee year) of our captivity at the beginning of the year (Rosh Hashanah) on the tenth of the lunar month, in the fourteenth year after the city was captured, on that same day, the hand of Yahweh was upon me and he took me there.” As far as I know, from my research, this is the ONLY place in the Tanach, the Old Covenant, where the phrase Rosh Hashanah is found. I found this phrase about nine years ago while doing my biblical chronology studies. This verse is locked in and synchronized with Ezekiel 1:1, the 30th year of the Jubilee Cycle! Ezekiel 40:1 reveals Ezekiel’s Jubilee year in 574 BC!

Anyway, notice Ezekiel did not write chadash hashanah, but rosh hashanah, the beginning of the year. Is it possible we could find the new moon expressed with similar language? Why YES! Yes we can! Most biblical calendar students begin their teachings with Exodus 12:2, so let’s go there first, “For you, this new moon will be the start of lunar months, the first new moon of the year to you.” That phrase, “start of lunar months” is in Hebrew, “Rosh Chodesh”!!! Whoa, is that beautiful or what!?! Moses, the great prophet like Ezekiel, uses Rosh instead of Chadash! So, is that the only example? No, we can find a couple more, at least.

Numbers 10:10, “Also, at the times of celebration, both your appointment calendar festivals and at the beginning of the lunar months, you must blow the trumpets in honor of your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices for your fellowship offerings. These will act as a reminder of you to me, your Almighty. I am Yahweh your Almighty.” Again, that is the phrase Rosh Chodesh!! The Hebrews said Rosh Chodesh, not Chadash Yareach!

Numbers 28:11, “At the beginning of each lunar month, you must offer a burnt offering to Yahweh. You must offer two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old without blemish.” Again, the phrase in Hebrew is “Rosh Chodesh”!!! You could just as easily translate these phrases as beginning of the new month(s), or beginning of the month(s), but I use lunar month(s) for emphasis. I do not see a solar calendar taught in the Scriptures as Yahweh’s biblical appointed Feasts calendar. It’s just not there in the Holy Scriptures, but a biblical lunar calendar is repeatedly taught and revealed.

Now, Psalm 104:19, makes more sense to me than it ever has: “He made the moon to mark the appointment calendar festivals; the sun knows its time for setting.” Now, this verse is a great confirmation verse to the biblical lunar calendar. Before today, to me at least, this verse stood out as a kind of oddity in the Scriptures. I had not found other Scriptures to help confirm and tie down a biblical lunar calendar. Well, I’m really convinced now, and I hope you are too. Yahweh did not have to create a moon and hang it out their in space just for us to use as a biblical calendar maker and marker, but he chose to do it, out of love for us. Is he the coolest Almighty Divine One or what? Yes, yes he is.
