News Letter 5846-008
9th day of the 2nd month 5846 years after creation
The 2nd Month in of the first year of the third Sabbatical Year
The Third Sabbatical Year of the 119th Jubilee Cycle
It is now the now the 21st day of Counting the Omer which began on Sunday April 4, 2010
April 24, 2010

Shabbat Shalom Brethren,

Earlier this week we asked for donations for our Pentecost offering. Some of you had problems with the directions. If it is easier to make your donation through pay pal on my site then go ahead and do it this way and we will send the funds along. Just click on the Pay pal button on the right hand side.

Also many of you have already made donatians and we want to thank you for your effort. May Yahovah Bless each one of you for your help.

It is now the 21st day of Counting the Omer which began on Sunday April 4, 2010. From the 15th day until this the 21st day represented the seven years which we are now in, in this Sabbatical cycle. The curse of the third Sabbatical cycle for not keeping the Sabbatical year which was from Aviv 2009 to Aviv 2010 is told to us in Lev 26 and is Pestilences and famines. Yahshua expanded on this in Mathew 24 when He said in verse 7 “For nation shall rise against nation, and reign against reign. And there shall be scarcities of food, and deadly diseases, and earthquakes in places”

Starting on Sunday the first day of the week April 25, is the 22nd day of counting the Omer and from the 22nd to the 28th day represents the 4th Sabbatical cycle of war, which I explain in great detail in The Prophecies of Abraham from scripture and it is coming to the USA and the UK and how they will lose this war.

The week of May 2nd begins the 5th week of counting the Omer and represents the 5th Sabbatical cycle of when Israel, the USA and the UK and the State of Israel will be in captivity. Yahshua cannot bring you out of Captivity into the Promised Land unless first of all you go into captivity. And this captivity will not be pleasant as some would imagine. Famine, war, slavery, sexual abuses, cannibalism, cold and inhumanity; Last week I asked you to watch the Video on Bergen Belsen. This time it is going to be Israel’s turn, that is the USA and the UK to feel the wrath for not obeying Yahovah and for not keeping His Torah.

In the news this past week is the ash cloud over Europe. It is interesting how the same week Israel remembers those killed in the Holocaust Europe is covered in ash. I would like you all to consider the implications of this in relation to the last days. Will airplanes be able to fly? Will you be able to escape by air at this time? Will nations be able to attack with war planes, or will they be able to defend themselves? Will nations be able to see from the sky anymore?

Deuteronomy 28:1 “And it shall be, if you diligently obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands which I command you today, that יהוה your Elohim shall set you high above all nations of the earth.

Notice here in verse one that Yahovah is speaking to you as a nation. So when we get to verse 28 you need to understand that He is talking to you still as a nation.

28 “יהוה shall smite you with madness and blindness and bewilderment of heart. 29 “And you shall be groping at noon, as a blind man gropes in darkness, and not prosper in your ways. And you shall be only oppressed and plundered all the days, with no one to save you.

We have here in Iceland and over Europe a possible indication of what Yahovah is about to do to the USA. He is already doing it in part to Britain, both of whom are the head of the Lost Ten Tribes if Israel. They are biblically known and prophetically known today as Israel. When the Scriptures speak of Israel this is whom they are talking about.

How could the mighty USA be plundered continuously? Take away its eye in the sky and remove its electronic army so that they must rely on ground units only and combine this with the lack of a will to fight. Now add to this an attack by missiles and you have a scenario which needs to be considered. Watch how this ash cloud plays out over Europe and consider how you will escape once it is no longer feasible to fly from your home.

But there is one other thing to consider. For some time I have warned you that in this the first year of this the third Sabbatical cycle to look for famines as shown to us in the prophecies of Abraham. Up to this moment I thought I was going to have to admit I was wrong on this. But I said this based on what I had learned from the scriptures and not from my own thoughts.

So now read what one sister has shown me this week. http://www.kwintessential.co.uk/articles/article/Iceland/Laki-Volcano-Eruption-Iceland/529
Iceland is a country of volcanoes and one of the greatest eruptions has been via the Laki volcano in 1783.

Iceland is an island of volcanoes spreading right across its landscape and even extending beneath the sea. Many of the volcanoes of Iceland have erupted and been active during its history. In Iceland’s most recent history the massive eruption of the Laki volcano in 1783 caused one of the greatest disasters in living history.

The Laki volcano eruption occurred in the June of 1783 in Iceland killing many thousands and spreading a massive haze that covered most of Europe and parts of North America. This cloud was even reported to have extended into Asia and North Africa.
In its wake, the Laki Volcano eruption, although beginning in Iceland created widespread famine across Europe when the weather pattern changed so dramatically that it affected vital crops in the summer months and saw the loss of livestock.

The meteorological impact of the Laki Volcano eruption in Iceland brought unprecedented weather patterns with violent thunderstorms and hailstorms, killing cattle in the fields and destroying crops.

In reference to the Laki volcano eruption in Iceland, Benjamin Franklin during a lecture in 1784 made the following comments ‘….when the effect of the sun’s rays to heat the earth in these northern regions should have been greater, there existed a constant fog over all Europe, and a great part of North America…’

The Laki volcano eruption in Iceland therefore, effectively eradicated the summer of that year. The sun was obscured by the vast cloud caused by the Laki eruption and, what should have been a warm summer in the northern hemisphere, took on winter proportions, not just in Iceland, but all over Europe. It was reported that the sun either remained as a pale ghost or took on a strange, blood red colour in the volcanic haze.

The repercussions of the Laki Volcano eruption in Iceland resonated throughout Europe for the next few years. The summer of 1783, having been turned to winter was followed by an extreme, harsh winter in 1784, even in North America where it was reported as one of the coldest on record.

The Laki Volcano eruption in Iceland can also be said to have contributed significantly to the French Revolution. After several years of extreme weather in Europe caused by the Laki eruption, the ensuing destruction of crops and livestock brought famine and poverty that built up in France, triggering the Revolution which began in 1789.

In spite of this major historical event in Iceland that changed the path of history, the Laki Volcano eruption in 1783 was not comparable to previous reported eruptions in Iceland, such as the Edlgja eruption of 934 AD which was even greater.

There were others throughout Iceland’s 500 years of recorded history and Iceland itself was born out of volcanic activity, Laki being only one of many volcanoes on the Island.

The question now is well this cause disruption to the food supply in Europe? I found this very in depth article on past famines at Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famine When a famine hits, consider just how devastating it is and for how long, as you read this article.

Then one brother sent me the following article from http://agriculture.imva.info/?p=12

Behold A Black Horse - Agricultural Apocalypse 2010?
http://agriculture.imva.info/
I urge you all to go to this site and read the many other articles about the growing Danger in our food supply world wide.
________________________________________
When a large segment of the population is facing a drastic cut in income in the face of escalating food prices we have a catastrophic problem in the making. Today we have the simultaneous events of income deflation and food inflation; two high-speed express trains coming down that tracks at each other, a financial crisis colliding with staggering crop losses, which are cutting deeply into available planetary food reserves. Prices of food are again beginning to soar again just as millions are losing the ability to afford a reasonable diet, though little of this is being observed or reported. But soon even the blind will see.

From corn to crude, prices for a wide range of commodities are on the rise across the globe. In recent months, global food prices have been growing at a rate that rivals some of the wildest monthsof 2008, when food riots erupted across the developing world. - January 9th Wall Street Journal

The cold is again freezing oranges in Florida. Temperatures in Miami dropped to 36F; beating the record 37F set in 1938. Officials are saying that hundreds of millions of dollars of food perished. Vegetables were among the hardest hit. At least one major tomato grower, Ag-Mart Produce, has already declared that most of its Florida crop is “useless due to the freeze.” Other vegetable farms were expected to lose their entire crop, and wholesale prices have already increased. “Tomatoes were down around $14 for a 25-pound box; now they are up over $20,” said Gene McAvoy, an agriculture expert with the University Florida, who predicted $100 million in vegetable losses. “Peppers — just after New Year’s they were $8 a box; now they’re up around $18.”

White sugar climbed to the highest price in at least two decades in London on speculation that India, Pakistan and other importers will purchase more of the sweetener as a supply deficit looms. Excess rains in Brazil and a weak monsoon in India hurt sugar-cane output from the world’s two biggest growers. - January 20, 2010

The world faces “mass starvation” following North America’s next major crop failure. And it could even happen before year’s end. So says Chicago-based Don Coxe, who is one of the world’s leading experts on agricultural commodities, so much so that Canada’s renowned BMO Financial Group named the fund after him. A crop failure in North America will have particularly dire consequences for major overseas markets that are highly reliant on U.S. crop imports.

Scientists in England are warning that a “perfect storm” of food shortages and water scarcity now threatens to unleash public unrest and conflict, the government’s chief scientist, Professor John Beddington, has warned. “People do not quite realise the scale of the issue,” said Professor Mike Bevan. “This is one of the most serious problems that science has ever faced.” In Britain the lives of hundreds of thousands of people will be threatened by food shortages. The repercussions of food shortages for any society are devastating. The world faces “mass starvation” following more major crop failures in the United States and other places around the globe.

We are facing a problem that literally has never been faced in human history. Surging population and food demand, food inflation, diminishing world food stocks, drought, flooding, cold, diminished credit, infestations, soil erosion, industrial farming, factory farm pollution, aquifers/wells going dry, relocation of produce for energy production are all slamming into a global financial and economic crisis. And in some places like the United States they don’t have enough farmers. Then on top of everything else we have desertification, which is one of the world’s most pressing environmental issues. New deserts are growing at a rate of 20,000 square miles (51,800 square kilometers) a year. Desertification leads to famine, mass starvation and human migration.

According to Eric de Carbonnel, “There is overwhelming, undeniable evidence that the world will run out of food next year. The 2010 Food Crisis is going to be different. It is the crisis that will make all doomsday scenarios come true. Early in 2009, the supply and demand in agricultural markets went badly out of balance. The world experienced a catastrophic fall in food production as a result of the financial crisis (low commodity prices and lack of credit) and adverse weather on a global scale. Normally food prices should have already shot higher months ago, leading to lower food consumption and bringing the global food supply/demand situation back into balance. This never happened because the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), instead of adjusting production estimates down to reflect decreased production, adjusted estimates upwards to match increasing demand from china. In this way, the USDA has brought supply and demand back into balance (on paper) and temporarily delayed a rise in food prices by ensuring a catastrophe in 2010.”

According to the United States Department of Agriculture U.S. farmers produced the largest corn and soybean crops on record in 2009. And there are people who believe that anyone who believes government figures on anything concerning the economy or anything else is out to lunch.

Very few people in the US have given any serious consideration to the question of food security. This essay should convince people that its time to start. For the most part, we’re not aware of the problem but if we look hard at the ‘hidden’ news we see that the handwriting is on the wall for an unimaginable crisis that will come on us as early as this year.

More than 2.1 million hectares of grain have been destroyed by drought in 2009 in Russia, Agriculture Minister Yelena Skrynnik said. A total of 616,000 hectares have been destroyed in the region, or 70% of the total amount planted.

“The world is blissfully unaware that the greatest economic, financial and political crisis ever is a few months away. It takes only the tiniest bit of research to realize something is going critically wrong in the agricultural market. All someone needs to do to know the world is headed for food crisis is to stop reading USDA’s crop reports predicting a record soybean and corn harvests and listen to what else the USDA is saying.

Specifically, the USDA has declared half the counties in the Midwest to be primary disaster areas, including 274 counties in the last 30 days alone. These designations are based on the criteria of a minimum of 30 percent loss in the value of at least one crop in the county,” continues de Carbonnel.

Brethren I continue to receive request for help from people around the world asking for the DVD and for the book The Prophecies of Abraham. With each request that I send it cost me between $50 and $75 to purchase the book and mail it to them. I could sure use some help to offset the cost of this.
Dear Mr. Dumond,

Thanks for your newsletter and articles. Your materials and inputs are being shared to our local church and fellowship. We also follow the new moon sightings to start the months. Your email newsletter does help us.

Moreover, if not too burdensome on your part, may we request, if possible, to have a copy of your book about the prophecies of Abraham and the Jubilee DVD for our local congregation since we do not have much of the financial means to buy as offered in your website. We believe we will learn much in these materials for the church’s growth here in the Philippines.

Hope our request can be considered.

With brotherly love,

Philippines

A number of you have read the book and have written to express how stunned you were after reading it. How blown away you were and how the book cleared up so many misconceptions that you had.

Online now and growing more and more support each day are those teachers who are using Daniels timeline to base their prophecy predictions. These are popular teachers like Michael Rood and Monte Judah and Eddy Chumny and there are many others I could name. I do not want to name these men because they do have much in the way that is good and they are anointed by Yahovah to do His work. But I have to say this and I regret I have to name these respected teachers.

Daniels timeline as shown to you at Dewey Bruton’s Website http://www.danielstimeline.com/gallery1.htm is based on the following chronology.

He has assumed that the Jubilee year was in 1917 when the Balfour Declaration (dated 2 November 1917) was a formal statement of policy by the British government stating that
“His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

Daniels time line then adds 50 years on to the 1917 and comes to 1967 and The Six-Day War of June 5–10, 1967. By this Dewey and many of these leading Messianic leaders insist and presume that this proves that Yahovah Himself is showing them when the Jubilee years are.

They then go on to add 50 more years on to 1967 and this brings you to 2017 and this year of 2017 must then be the final and last Jubilee year when the Messiah is to come. And all of their followers jump up and praise Yahovah and sing halleluiah, come lord Jesus, come. Michael Rood’s Jonah code is based on this teaching and he has said that the missiles will begin in 2010.

This week I listened to Monte Judah on GLC and he showed the audience the 70 year prophecy of Daniel which goes like this according to Monte.

Israel became a nation in 1948. In November 1947, the United Nations voted in favor of the partition of Palestine, proposing the creation of a Jewish state, an Arab state, and a UN-administered Jerusalem. Partition was accepted by Zionist leaders but rejected by Arab leaders, leading to civil war. Israel declared independence on 14 May 1948 and neighboring Arab states attacked the next day.

Then according to Daniel 9:25 “Know, then, and understand: from the going forth of the command to restore and build Yerushalayim until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again, with streets and a trench, but in times of affliction. 26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught. And the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. And the end of it is with a flood. And wastes are decreed, and fighting until the end. 27 “And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering. And on the wing of abominations he shall lay waste, even until the complete end and that which is decreed is poured out on the one who lays waste

From this scripture many of these teachers are now saying that the 62 years since Jerusalem was given the command is from 1948 plus 62 is 2010. And they are saying something of huge proportions is to take place at Shavuot 2010. But then there is the other 7 years here which is the completion of the 70 year prophecy and this will bring you to 2017.

This is their two witnesses. The 50 year Jubilee cycle lands in 2017 and the 70 years prophecy of Daniel also lands in 2017.
In Mathew 24 we read about the last generation. 32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near–at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

Most people take this and apply it to the state of Israel in 1948. How they arrive at this is pure speculation. They have no base and scriptural reference to do this.

Brethren you are warned by Yahshua Himself in Mathew 24: 23 “If anyone then says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe. 24 “For false messiahs and false prophets shall arise, and they shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones. 25 “See, I have forewarned you.

So ask yourself this question. You being one of the select or one of the chosen ones, how would it be possible for some person to lead you astray? You are supposed to know your scriptures so how are they going to do it? How can they deceive you? They will do it by misapplying scriptures which you should know but you do not.

So where has all of this gone astray? I show you this in the DVD which you can watch for free at http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=251 and I show you from history where each Sabbatical year was recorded and where the bible says each of the Jubilee years were. Once you know this you can count from one Sabbatical year to another all the way down through history until our own day. Aviv 2016 - Aviv 2017 is in fact a Sabbatical year but it is not the Jubilee year. 2017-2018 will be the first year of the Sabbatical cycle for war.

You can order the charts or the book The Prophecies of Abraham which shows these very things. The charts are on line at http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=250 Print this off and make a copy for yourself. I do not care how many do this but learn the truth.

As we count the Omer, we are told in Lev 23: 11 ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before יהוה, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it.

15 ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. 16 ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to יהוה.

The 50th day as you count it will be on the 1st day of the week. The fiftieth day is also the first day of the week. So is the Jubilee year. The fiftieth year is also the first year of the next count. So you never count by 50s when you count a jubilee cycle, it is always by 49s. You can check this from history and from Lev 25 when Joshua entered the Promised Land it was the 50th year and it was also the first year in the count to the next Jubilee year. You need to look at the charts to see this clearly. For the lives of your own family go and do this, check the charts.

So when these Leaders whom I greatly respect count by 50 to arrive at their conclusions they are gravely in error and as such are leading you astray. You can review what I have to say on this subject at The Seventy Shabuwa, The Seventy Weeks of Daniel 9 http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=259 and How Many of the Messianic Brethren are about to be Deceived http://www.sightedmoonnl.com/?page_id=495

I have another question for you all to think about. If 2017 is a Jubilee year as all of these leaders are saying, why are none of them teaching you how to get ready for the 49th Sabbatical year which would be, according to them in 2016. And if this is correct why did none of them also teach you to keep the Sabbatical year in 2008-2009. And why did those who are living in the land of Israel not keep it, as some say you only keep in if you’re in the land.

Here at www.sightedmoon.com I and many of those who read this News letter kept the Sabbatical year from Aviv 2009 to Aviv 2010 as proven to us from all historical and biblical knowledge which any of you can access. We were obedient. If these leaders are so sure about the Jubilee being 2017 then why are they not also keeping the 49th Sabbatical year before hand?

Be careful what you swallow, it could cost you and your family your lives. Prove all things, hold fast what is true. Please compare what I am saying to what they are saying. Prove it and once you do take what I have shown you and show them before it is to late.

Each time I try to explain this on Facebook I am deleted. When I try to tell others they do not want to listen. Those of you who have read the book, The Prophecies of Abraham; those of you who watched the DVD about the Jubilee years; those of you who have proven these things to be true; by the commandment of Yahovah you are to raise up and warn these people who are racing to be deceived. You must warn them, as I have been trying to do these past 5 years. If you continue to sit idly by and let the job fall to me and a very few others, then when they die, and they will die, their blood will be on your hands, as we are told of the watchman who saw and said nothing. You must speak up and you must do it on all your facebook, myspace and ning networks. By whatever means you have let them know they are about to be lead astray and then show them how.

We are this week into the 6th week of our Triennial Torah schedule which you can download at http://www.sightedmoon.com/files/TriennialCycleBeginningAviv.pdf

This week Date is 24/04/2010 Gen 6 Josh 15 Ps 10-12 Mat 9

Genesis 6
1 And it came to be, when men began to increase on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of Elohim saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. 3 And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”

I have to focus on the 120 years part here for a moment. The word year used here is from the Strongs # 8141 and can also mean a revolution of time. It is commonly used as a year but can also mean a period of time.

Since men do not normally live to 120 years of age then is this what Yahovah meant? When He said it men lived for hundreds of years; Up to over 900. Today we live about 70 some odd years. So this must be an average from all ages. No it is not.

In the DVD the Chronological Order of Prophecies which I did on 2008 I teach that this means the time for man is 120 periods of time or 120 Jubilee cycles with each of the six days of man being 20 Jubilee cycles each. You can watch the DVD at http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=251 for free or you can order your own copy by clicking on the link on the main page.

I prove this understanding to be the correct one in the DVD.

Many people come to verse 4 about the giants and get all bent out of shape and fall prey to the many conspiracy teachings now floated as facts. These mighty men of renown are just famous men who rose to a high position. Do not read any more into this than what is there. Yes I have seen the pictures of Giant skeletons found around the earth. And Yes I do believe there were giants or extremely tall men at that time. If you read some of the additional readings I have added for Joshua you will learn more about the Giants when you read about the Olmecs.

For Pentecost in 2007 I went to see Noah’s Ark in Eastern Turkey and I have written a few articles on the subject. In chapter 6 we are talking about the length and height and width of the Ark Noah was to build and it was to be made from Gopher wood. I actually measured Noah’s Ark and would like share some details I have written about this at http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=159 My trip to Noah’s Ark from the beginning; http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=160 Description of Noah’s Ark and the Length and width. What is a cubit? The Golden section or Ratio; http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=161 Noah’s Ark the Height Ziggurats and Volume; http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=163 What exactly is Gopher wood? Easter Eggs and Doves and the relationship to Noah’s Ark

This is a lot of reading for you this week, but I am sure many of you will be blessed by these studies and especially those who are home schooling.

Joshua 15

This chapter tells of the land of Judah and of Calebs conquest.

I would like to place in here a comment from http://derek4messiah.wordpress.com/2010/01/06/idealism-and-reality-in-joshua/

Does the Book of Joshua Present a False Picture?

A common claim is that Joshua depicts the Conquest as rapid and complete. Judges contradicts that account by mentioning the unclaimed territory and the Canaanite enclaves left in Israel to harass the Israelites.

It is easy on a careless reading of Joshua to think this is true. Compare, for example this excerpt from Joshua with this one from Judges:
Joshua 11:16-18, So Joshua took all that land, the hill country and all the Negeb and all the land of Goshen and the lowland and the Arabah and the hill country of Israel and its lowland from Mount Halak, that rises toward Seir, as far as Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon. And he took all their kings, and smote them, and put them to death. Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.

Judges 3:1-6, Now these are the nations which the Lord left, to test Israel by them, that is, all in Israel who had no experience of any war in Canaan; it was only that the generations of the people of Israel might know war, that he might teach war to such at least as had not known it before. These are the nations: the five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites who dwelt on Mount Lebanon, from Mount Baal-hermon as far as the entrance of Hamath. They were for the testing of Israel, to know whether Israel would obey the commandments of the Lord, which he commanded their fathers by Moses. So the people of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and they took their daughters to themselves for wives, and their own daughters they gave to their sons; and they served their gods.

But, if you read Joshua closely, you notice many areas were unconquered, many conquered cities were then taken back by the Canaanites who were defeated in battle, and many Canaanites remained after Joshua’s sweep through the land. Joshua presents a military campaign, an initial assault.

If you read even more closely you will find that this is all about idealism versus reality and is a deliberate literary strategy.
Consider the multitude of evidence in Joshua that the conquest was slow, incomplete, and prone to losing territory once gained:
Joshua 11:22
There was none of the Anakim left in the land of the people of Israel; only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, did some remain.
Joshua 13:13
Yet the people of Israel did not drive out the Geshurites or the Ma-acathites; but Geshur and Maacath dwell in the midst of Israel to this day.
Joshua 15:13
According to the commandment of the Lord to Joshua, he gave to Caleb the son of Jephunneh a portion among the people of Judah, Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron (Arba was the father of Anak).
Joshua 15:63
But the Jebusites, the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the people of Judah could not drive out; so the Jebusites dwell with the people of Judah at Jerusalem to this day.
Joshua 16:10
However they did not drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: so the Canaanites have dwelt in the midst of Ephraim to this day but have become slaves to do forced labor.
Joshua 18:3
So Joshua said to the people of Israel, “How long will you be slack to go in and take possession of the land, which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?
Joshua 23:13
know assuredly that the Lord your God will not continue to drive out these nations before you; but they shall be a snare and a trap for you, a scourge on your sides, and thorns in your eyes, till you perish from off this good land which the Lord your God has given you.

K. Lawson Younger on Idealism in Joshua
In Eerdman’s Commentary on the Bible (ed., Dunn and Rogers, 2003), Younger writes the chapter on Joshua. His introduction to the book is interesting.

He sees two idealistic pictures in Joshua. One is the “land that remains,” a concept made clear in Joshua 13:1-7. The other is “Euphraitic Israel,” from 1:4, the notion that Israel’s territory should go up into Lebanon and Syria all the way to where the Euphrates empties into the Mediterranean.

The difference between actuality and idealism he calls “ironic tension.” It’s purpose is to “instill the book of Joshua with the flavor of unredeemed promise.” These are “hopeful indications of greater future land blessings to Israel.”

In contrast with those who dismiss Joshua as mere fiction, Younger’s interpretation helps us see that the gap between reality and idealism is deliberate. Judges will deal more with reality. Joshua deals more with idealism. Both portraits are necessary.

With this now in mind you can read about how Caleb took his possession from http://www.gospelway.com/commentary/joshua/joshua15.pdf

As recorded in 14:6-15, Joshua had agreed that Caleb could receive Hebron as his inheritance. This had formerly been named Kirjath-Arba, after the great Anakim leader named Arba, father of Anak.

Caleb and his family were successful in capturing Hebron, driving out in the process three Anak warriors named Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai. This would be no small feat, since these men were giants and great warriors that had so frightened Israel’s spies when they first came to Canaan. As discussed in chap. 14, the chronology here is not clear, but the most likely explanation is that Israel had earlier defeated Hebron driving out the Anakim, but more had returned and had to be driven out at this time by Caleb.

Caleb and his family then went to another nearby city named Kirjath Sepher. This was later renamed Debir. This city too was captured according to chap. 10:38,39. So again some people must have returned in the meanwhile.

Caleb offered to give his daughter Achsah as wife to whomever would attack and capture Debir. This challenge was taken up by Othniel, Caleb’s nephew (son of Caleb’s brother Kenaz). He attacked and captured Debir, so Caleb gave him his daughter Achsah as promised.

After the victory, Achsah and Othniel agreed to ask Caleb to also give them a field including springs for water. This request was made and Caleb agreed giving her upper and lower springs.

This event is also recorded in Judges 1:11-15. It is obviously the same story, so it cannot have happened both times. Perhaps the story occurred in Joshua’s day as recorded in Joshua 15 but is included in Judges 1 for completeness to explain in some detail the victories of Judah and to introduce Othniel who later became a judge. (Or vice-versa, it may have occurred later as recorded in Judges 1, but for completeness it was recorded in the book of Joshua by the one who later wrote the story. But it would seem that would make Caleb a very old man here, since Joshua had already died.)

This same Othniel, Caleb’s nephew, later became a judge of Israel as recorded in Judges 3:7-11.
This event is also discussed in Judges 1:11-15

I would also like to share with you a few teachings at this time about who some of the Canaanites were and where they went and by what name they are known as today. I am sure you will also be surprised in this study as well. http://www.hope-of-israel.org/algonqun.htm The Story of the Algonquin Indians. Note (in the article when it says 844 years after the flood this is in fact the year 2500 which is exactly when Joshua entered the land of Canaan. You can look at this in your charts at the back of the book The Prophecies of Abraham. The Flood was in 1656 + 844 = 2500 which is a Jubilee year and the first year of the next cycle.)

Mat 9
There is so much here to comment on. Wow. And I have already given you much to read in the previous sections we have looked at.

So I want to speak about two things. Yahshua called Mathew to come and follow Him in this chapter and then we read how Yahshua was seating with tax collectors and sinners.

10 And it came to be, as יהושע sat at the table in the house, that see, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His taught ones. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His taught ones, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 And יהושע hearing this, said to them, “Those who are strong have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 “But go and learn what this means, ‘I desire compassion and not offering.’ For I did not come to call the righteous to repentance, but sinners.”

Throughout the rest of this chapter we read how Yahshua healed the many sick and dead and then the chapter concludes with;

35 And יהושע went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their congregations, and proclaiming the Good News of the reign, and healing every disease and every bodily weakness among the people. 36 And having seen the crowds, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His taught ones, “The harvest truly is great, but the workers are few. 38 “Pray then that the Master of the harvest would send out workers to His harvest.”

Many of you go around in your safe circles of friends and like some on facebook you quote to your friends a scripture and have a nice talk about it. This is nice and it is safe and you never get hurt doing this because you’re all in the same boat.

Is this what Yahshua was doing. No, He was going to those who were not part of the society. He went to the sick and healed them. He was found amongst those who were known to be sinners. Why? He tells us that it is the sick that need the Doctor and not the healthy.

So why are you dealing with those who already know the truths. Why are you singing to the Choir? You already are all in agreement. Go instead to those groups of Christians who have no clue about Torah. Go and teach them and show them what sin is and what the mark of Satan is and what the Mark of Yahovah is. Show them the difference. When I do this is when I get so much hate mail or get kicked off of advertising sites. Go to those Christians who are currently lost and have no way of learning the truth unless you go there and teach them.

I had one lady write me last week who was doing this exact thing. The article The Mark of the Beast can be read on my site at http://www.sightedmoon.com/?page_id=17

Shalom Joseph,

I pray all is well in your quest in spreading the truth to others. YHWH surely has blessed you. I have been going to a Bible study on Friday nights. They have been studying Revelations. There are times I cannot make it to these studies, but I did last night and last week as well. I gave them a copy of Mark Of The Beast. I believe it is going to rub them the wrong way. The reason I say that is because as I was sitting there and they were throwing all kinds of ideas in the air on how events are going take place, ( thats not looking at what I have gave them yet) I kept thinking to myself it is right there in the Bible. The reason I don’t say anything is that I cannot answer them when I know they will attack me. I say attack for the reason that they sit in a world that is comfortable to them with believes that this world churches have taught them. I do not do well when cornered. Also this attack will be not from them but Satan himself, I know he does not want them to know the truth. This is much like what happens to you, but with me it is very minor. I am still learning so I do not know if I could stand up to an attack. It is my prayer that your literature will spark an awakening in them. In all this I do know at this time I am suppose to be going to this Bible study. So Joseph stay strong.

Darlene

This brethren, is exactly what Mathew is talking about. This woman is going to the sick and giving them an answer to something they need to hear. In this case it is ‘What is the Mark of the Beast’. For absolutely sure this will cause many of them to get upset. But who knows maybe one or more might begin to study out the truth.

We all know how bad Buckley’s cough syrup taste and yet we all know it works. When you go and confront those who are teaching falsely and are not using torah as their base it is going to upset them just as I most likely have in the beginning of this News letter. We all know this because that is how we once were. I still remember the program that made me mad enough to check into the bible and those people who knocked on my door.

Each of you must make yourself a one person witness and go and find those who do not know the truth. Do not try and gather together all of those who think the same as you do and preach to them. What good is that? Go to those who are lost and teach them.

35 And יהושע went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their congregations, and proclaiming the Good News of the reign, and healing every disease and every bodily weakness among the people. 36 And having seen the crowds, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, as sheep having no shepherd. 37 Then He said to His taught ones, “The harvest truly is great, but the workers are few. 38 “Pray then that the Master of the harvest would send out workers to His harvest.”

From just my News Letters I am able to see so many who are so tired of the false teachers they have grown up with. They are ready for the truth. They are seeing the world events and wondering what it all means. They are ready now to receive the truth. But too many of you are hiding behind you fears; your fear to confront the evil that presides over many people.

You know the saying ‘Evil Flourishes when good men do nothing”. What are you doing? The Harvest is so ripe and is so big but we have so few people to do the work and so few who are willing to help the work.

I have told you before and I do so again now; if you do not have it in you to confront those who are teaching wrong, give them a copy of one of my teachings and then tell them to write to me and I will show them for you. This is why it is here on the web site. Use it. If you want to use another approach use the articles about Noah’s Ark to get them to look again at the bible from a Torah perspective. The thing is to be pro active and doing something, anything but to be out there doing our Fathers business. James tells us to be doers of the law; that means you need to be doing something. It means you have to get off your…..couch.

We have also asked for you help by asking for money so that we can go ahead and do some of the projects we are trying to accomplish in Israel on behalf of all of us. By all of us banding together we can have a huge impact, but only if we support the efforts in a unified method. We do need your help. Not all of us can be on the front line. Some are the support system without which nothing else will happen.

Ephesians 4: 7 But to each one of us favour was given according to the measure of the gift of Messiah.
11And He Himself gave some as emissaries, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as shepherds and teachers 12 for the perfecting of the set-apart ones, to the work of service to a building up of the body of the Messiah, 13 until we all come to the unity of the belief and of the knowledge of the Son of Elohim, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the completeness of Messiah,

One guy sent the following email after our request for your help this week.

You sound like those Jesus charlatans ( begging ) for money, when; if you were truly living bt the word of The Father, you would be receiving from His storehouse, not begging man!. You really should be aware of the danger you are putting your soul in, degradating YAHWEH’S character by begging men. Have a blessed day Brother Joseph.
Mesha Amnon Yisrael

Apparently Mesha has not read Exodus 25:1 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, that they take up a contribution for Me. From everyone whose heart moves him you shall take up My contribution. 3 “And this is the contribution which you take up from them: gold, and silver, and bronze, 4 and blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, 5 and rams’ skins dyed red, and fine leather, and acacia wood, 6 oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense, 7 shoham stones, and stones to be set in the shoulder garment and in the breastplate. 8 “And they shall make Me a Set-apart Place, and I shall dwell in their midst.

Nor has Mesha read Deuteronomy 16:16 “Three times a year all your males appear before יהוה your Elohim in the place which He chooses: at the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and at the Festival of Weeks, and at the Festival of Booths. And none should appear before יהוה empty-handed, 17 but each one with the gift of his hand, according to the blessing of יהוה your Elohim which He has given you.

Moses was told to ask the people for donations to build the Tabernacle. Yahovah Himself said not to come at the three Festivals empty handed.

We have asked for your help to make a donation at the second of these three Festivals, at Shavuot. This gift is to be made to a Charity in Israel on behalf of Those tribes who have not yet been allowed back in the land.

Again all of you can tell people to sign up for this news letter and they can learn of this Torah at their own pace. Have you signed up your friends and family and those at work?

Remember what we just read in a recent study Mathew 7: 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. 22 “Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ 23 “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!

Did we not just study last week the laws where it says # 27 do not stand idly by when human life is in danger? Taken from Lev 19:16 ‘Do not go slandering among your people. Do not stand against the blood of your neighbour. I am יהוה.

Brethren, if you have been reading any of the News Letters for any length of time or if you have read the Prophecies of Abraham you will know just how close we are to when all human life is in great danger. How can you stand idly by and not do anything to help? Are you not then contributing to the works of lawlessness by doing nothing?

We also showed you in two recent studies about the wedding invitation that is sent out and how many would not accept it. Those who have read The Prophecies of Abraham know we have just seven years to get this done, before the war comes to the USA and the UK. Just seven years. Don’t leave this job any longer. Share the message while you can.

We again go to http://www.jewfaq.org/613.htm for our next 7 laws from the 613 laws.

36. To rebuke the sinner (Lev. 19:17) (CCA72).
17 ‘Do not hate your brother in your heart. Reprove your neighbour, for certain, and bear no sin because of him.
I find this most interesting especially now after reading the study in Mathew 9. We are not to stand by and let sin go unchallenged as we have just been explaining. Stand with us and take the truth to those who are lost. Stop singing to the choir and go to those who need to hear the truth.

37. To relieve a neighbor of his burden and help to unload his beast (Ex. 23:5) (CCA70). See Love and Brotherhood.
5 “When you see the donkey of him who hates you lying under its burden, you shall refrain from leaving it to him, you shall certainly help him.

38. To assist in replacing the load upon a neighbor’s beast (Deut. 22:4) (CCA71). See Love and Brotherhood.
4 “When you see your brother’s donkey or his ox fall down on the way, you shall not hide yourself from them. Help him raise them without fail.

39. Not to leave a beast, that has fallen down beneath its burden, unaided (Deut. 22:4) (CCN183). See Love and Brotherhood.
4 “When you see your brother’s donkey or his ox fall down on the way, you shall not hide yourself from them. Help him raise them without fail.

The Poor and Unfortunate
40. Not to afflict an orphan or a widow (Ex. 22:22) (CCN51).
22 “Do not afflict any widow or fatherless child.

41. Not to reap the entire field (Lev. 19:9; Lev. 23:22) (negative) (CCI6).
9 ‘And when you reap the harvest of your land, do not completely reap the corners of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest
22 ‘And when you reap the harvest of your land do not completely reap the corners of your field when you reap, and do not gather any gleaning from your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ”

42. To leave the unreaped corner of the field or orchard for the poor (Lev. 19:9) (affirmative) (CCI1).
9 ‘And when you reap the harvest of your land, do not completely reap the corners of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest
