For those of you who keep YHWH’s calendar, Welcome to the sabbatical Year of Cycle 3! Whether you kept Abib in March or April you are now firmly in the sabbatical year. I hope that all of your preparations have been made or are nearly so.
Why did I title this article the way I did? Simple, I want everyone to be aware that we are in the sabbatical year of Cycle 3, which is the cycle for pestilences, famines and earthquakes. Seems like everyone is asking why there are so many earthquakes. The answer is: we are at the culmination of the cycle that is defined by plagues, pestilences, famines and earthquakes. This includes volcanic activity. And, I do not anticipate that it will diminish over the next 2 cycles ((14 years)), war next and slavery following.
I have had a lot of folks ask me why I quit writing “prepping” articles and switched instead to “religious” articles. The answer to the question is that if you are not prepared spiritually for what is about to happen, no physical preparations will save you. I never really thought of my articles as “prepping” articles even though I may have used the word. Instead, I felt that the articles were about living an independent lifestyle. How to live in the 21st century world and not be a part of it. But even this is taken from the Scripture, found in Romans 12:2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. All I tried to do was to transform your view of the world.
How silly can a person be to believe in an archaic book about a Jewish deity and think that it has any relevance to the world today. If you haven’t, I have heard this many, many times. I think there are even some comments in the comment section of my various articles about the sabbatical years that echo this very emotion. First, the Scriptures are very old but the age of the Scriptures does in no way diminish their relevance in today’s world. If anything, since we are nearly at the end of the 120 cycles the Scriptures become even more relevant because through the Scriptures we see what is going to happen in the immediate future. Second, YHWH is not a Jewish deity. Judaism only represents the beliefs of one of the 12 tribes of Israel, Judah. It is correct to say that the Creator is a Hebrew god or deity but not correct to say He is a Jewish god. Third, as I mentioned in part one above, the Scriptures are more relevant today, for the 21st century, than at any time since Yeshua walked the Earth with His Apostles.
In August 2014, how many of you disagreed with me when I mentioned that ISIS would come here to America and begin doing the same things here as they do in the Middle East? Now, we have had one slaughter attributed to them since I wrote that warning. There have been numerous incidents in this country that were probably directly attributable to ISIS but the media or government or both wouldn’t do so.
Remember in August of 2014 when I wrote that any nation that had considered itself a Christian nation would suffer from the atrocities of ISIS? Seen anything in the news about that in Europe? Maybe in France or Belgium or Sweden, perhaps? ISIS is coming to America to kill as many as they can, rape your wives, sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, etc. Sweden is now called the rape capital of the world. Rape is exploding in Germany and most other nations in Europe. Soon, it will be in a city near you. What will the government do to stop it? NOTHING!!! Who do you think brought them here?
Where can you run to in order to escape the judgment that is coming to America? Nowhere!!! As I have mentioned in previous articles, the judgment this time is on the world not just America. I have been invited to Japan, Fiji, Uruguay, and a half dozen other countries to get away from what is about to befall America. There will be no escape. Sure, you might be able to hide for a few years, time enough to let you smaller children grow up, maybe. But there will be no hiding this time. You hear so much about globalism in this day and age, who would have thought that this would also apply to the coming judgment.
Am I trying to scare you? Maybe! Has it worked yet? I don’t want you to be afraid but rather confident in your faith in the Father and His Messiah, Yeshua. For me, it is coming up on His Passover and during His Passover I want to remember not only what Yeshua did to restore us to a relationship with the Father, but also, what the Father did, out of His love for us, to restore us to a relationship with Him.
As I have mentioned before, in previous articles, I believe that by 2030 or 2033 there will be less than 3.2 million Americans left alive in this country. Ninety percent will die during the cycle of war (Cycle 4) and then 90% of the remainder will die during the cycle of slavery (Cycle 5). You have NO guarantee that you or your family will be apart of so small a remnant.
“What about the rapture?” you ask. You do not want to be a part of any so-called rapture. The Scripture clearly tells you why. Look at Matt. 24:27 & 28. The whole world will see the coming of the Son of Adam (Man). Look at verse 28. Doesn’t it look out of place? Where is this verse mentioned again in context? Look to Luke 17:34-36. Sounds like the rapture right? Look at verse 37 and what do you see, that same verse from Matthew 24 in context. The ones that were taken were taken to their death, i.e. destruction. Do we see any other evidence of this in Scripture? Yes, from Yeshua Himself in Matt: 13:25-40. Who is the wheat? We are!! That is why the Feast of Shavuot should be so important to you. That is the Feast of the Wheat Harvest. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is the feast of the barley harvest. Big deal you say? Yes, it is. Yeshua is the barley. He is the bread in which there is no leaven, no sin. Shavuot is the feast that the modern church calls Pentecost. Why? Because from the Festival of First Fruits to Shavuot you count the Omer. In other words you count 50 days. The Greeks didn’t understand this when they translated the Scripture so they just called it 50.
“Hey, Codger, the Old Testament is dead, over, done, kaput, right?” Not hardly. If you understood the importance and relevance of the so-called “Old Testament” it would make your jaw drop. Go back to my article on the covenant and read it again. Instead of me trying to convince you that Torah, the first 5 books of the Bible, is still relevant to your life today by reading Torah let me take a different approach. Turn to Revelation, the last book in the Scriptures. Read Revelation 12 and read verse 17.
Rev. 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Now read chapter 14:
Rev. 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. Now turn to the last chapter:
Rev. 22:14 Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Do you see how important keeping YHWH’s commands can be? You cannot eat of the fruit of the Tree of Life or enter into the New Jerusalem if you do not keep YHWH’s commands. To me, this sounds very important. Now look at one more thing that is very important, Revelation 1:1
Rev 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
Do you see what this says? It was God ((YHWH is His Name)) that gave the revelation to Yeshua to give to John. It was NOT Yeshua’s revelation but the one given to Him by His Father. This is very consistent with Mark 13:32:
Mar. 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
What am I saying? Give credit where credit is due. The Father sent this revelation so that His children would have the additional knowledge necessary to discern the end of the age and the return of Yeshua.
To answer a question that I get from time to time; “Why do you refer to the Bible as Scriptures?” The word for Bible comes from the Greek word biblios which simply means a list. The word Scripture means a sacred writing. See the difference. I don’t see the Scriptures as a list of writings but rather view them as the sacred writings of YHWH’s Word.
Num 6:22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 6:23 “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ĕl. Say to them:
Num 6:24 “יהוה bless you and guard you;
Num 6:25 יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
Num 6:26 יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.”
Num 6:27 “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ĕl, and I Myself shall bless them.”
