Doomed to Fail??

Because of the content of many of my articles I am quite often asked if I am a member of the Hebrew Roots movement. My answer is normally, “No, but I am a believer who is interested in the proper context of the Scripture.” Some continue, most don’t, “Well, do you believe that the proper context is based in understanding Hebrew?” To this I normally answer, yes. Then someone will say, “That is what the Hebrew Roots movement is all about.” This is where I generally say, “No, it isn’t.” Mostly people just throw up there hands and walk away.

Back in the early 1970’s Paul Newman played Judge Roy Bean in a movie by the same name. In it the narrator correctly observed, “There is nothing worse than a ‘reformed’ anything.” This brings me to the point of this article.

The Hebrew Roots movement has been a dynamic force in recent years. It is wonderful that people are learning the inaccuracies and outright deception incorporated into the “corporate” church. This is wonderful and refreshing. But there is a troubling trend that I see happening in the movement and that is that many people in the movement have no tolerance for “corporate” Christians. In other words; “there is nothing worse than a reformed Christian.” (Messianic believer)

Maybe this, in and of itself, doesn’t sound like a big criticism, but it is. Instead of trying to use the knowledge of where they were in their walk as a “believer” to help others see the truth they oftentimes resort to name calling, condemnation and even vitriol in addressing “Christians”. Why can’t they remember back to the “approach” that helped them see the truth in the Scriptures? Why, instead of being empathetic and understanding, so many in the movement resort to wagging their fingers in peoples faces and condemning others for their stupidity. I don’t know about you but you will not convince me of anything by yelling or wagging your finger in my face except you have real emotional issues that require immediate psychiatric help.

But, this is what I have come to understand. When people within the movement begin their attack of Christians it has nothing to do with that Christian but rather they are angry at themselves for having been duped by the corporate church and they are really shouting, wagging their finger and even cursing themselves for being stupid (their word not mine) enough to believe the deception of the modern corporate church. You could not train a good class of dogs if you shouted, cursed and threatened them instead of showing love, empathy and firmness. But first, you have to know more than the dog in order to teach a dog. So, if you will treat a dog with kindness, love and affection, why won’t you treat a fellow human being, that you ostensibly care about, with love and want the best for, in the same manner as a dog?

Until leaders in the Hebrew Roots movement train and teach their membership how to treat Christians and non-Christians with love, respect, empathy and most of all, simple everyday respect, your “movement” will be doomed to failure. Wake up folks, the movement has already been co-opted. Go to 10 Hebrew Roots websites and see how much and what is for sale, i.e. Hebrew candles, tallits from Israel, olive oil from Israel (Texas has a huge and growing olive oil industry I’ll buy Texas, thank you), dirt from Israel (thank you very much, I have enough dirt around my house to last a lifetime) and you can even buy a square foot of land in Israel. Oh, really, I have size 14 feet. I can’t stand on a square foot of land without automatically trespassing on my neighbor’s land. What am I going to do with a square foot of land? Plant a potted plant?

No matter how good and righteous your message, if you will not treat others with temperance and respect, no one is going to listen to you except some sicko who likes to be abused. You don’t win people’s hearts by shouting the loudest and treating them with disrespect. If you genuinely believe that Yeshua was the Messiah then can you not believe as He tried to teach us? Mat.19:19 Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
Mat. 22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.
Mar. 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Luk. 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbor as thyself.

You say that you observe Torah but what about Leviticus 19:18? You see, I think that this is clue and the cure all rolled into one. Maybe you need to love yourself a little more so you can actually forgive yourself for being duped. Once you can do that, maybe, just maybe, you can learn to love that brother, sister, mother, father, cousin, friend or neighbor enough to teach them the love of YHWH that we see in John 3:16: “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. (ISR 1998 Scriptures)

You see, it doesn’t say that Jesus (Yeshua) for so loved the world but that Elohim so loved the world.

Do you remember where and when you realized you had been fooled? What was said, or what happened to get you to realize that you had been fooled? For me it was 40 years ago this past January when I started studying Semitic languages. I realized that the translators of the Scriptures had no knowledge of the customs of the people nor the idioms of the language. It has taken these forty years to begin filling in blanks. It is with fondness that I remember some of the people who have helped me along the way.

So, to answer my question in the title, is the Hebrew Roots movement Doomed To Fail?? If it cannot learn compassion, empathy and love, genuine love for their neighbor, yes, it will fail, die out, dry up and blow away. But you know what? I know many of the people within the movement and I have the sincerest hope that love and understanding will win out. It has to, we don’t have much time left to get the message out.

And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
“Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ĕl. Say to them: “יהוה bless you and guard you;
יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you;
יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” Numbers 6:22-26 (ISR 1998 Scriptures)

Welcome to the Sabbatical Year of Earthquakes, Pestilences and Famines!

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.”

Prepping for the Sabbatical Year: As if you needed one more reason to prep.

(((I want to dedicate this article to Brandon, Shellie, Kathy, Philip and Nadia who have asked great questions about preparing for the Sabbatical Year. Also, I dedicate it to my little sister in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) Sandra, whose efforts and excitement in preparing for the coming sabbatical year border on “awesome”.))) Continue reading

COVENANT UPDATE!!!

I just wanted to pass this along as an update to my last article about covenants.

http://www.religionnews.com/2015/07/07/pope-francis-we-can-no-longer-turn-our-backs-on-mother-earth/

It has become the primary thrust of the Pope and Barack Obama to push the global environmental agenda. Of all the threats we face in the summer of 2015, these two @#$%^&*  imbeciles have embarked on a supercilious environmental campaign only because it will lead to the total domination of every man, woman and child on the Earth. With all this said Fukushima is pumping out enough radiation to kill off the entire planet if something is not done soon but there is not one mention of this in the lame stream media. They (Obama, the Pope, United Nations, elite, etc.) do not care about the planet or the environment. They only care about control  and domination.

Shalom,

The Covenant Made With Many…It Is Not What You were Taught or Thought!

Most people in the Western world are not familiar with the idea of a covenant. There are several types of covenants but the two most common in the area now encompassing the Middle East are the salt and blood covenants. Salt is an acceptable substitute for blood and is therefore considered by many to be one in the same as a blood covenant. We see that the powerful covenant made with King David , forever, was made by means of a covenant of salt (2 Chronicles 13:5) Continue reading

The Sky is falling, The Sky is Falling! NOT!!!

Lately I have not commented on current events per se. But, this is bugging the heck out of me so I must make a comment. Greece is wanting to default on its loans, the loans made in bad faith by members, or former members of Goldman Sachs and JPM who were members of the EU and/or the then current Greek government. Greece could never in a million years repaid those loans under the conditions specified. But here is the part that irks the heck out of me. Germany, the nation that has not repaid a loan in over 100 years is insisting that Greece repay every penny. As I have already told you, Germany will join with Russia and China and the other Eastern Bloc nations for the invasion of America. But Germany has never repaid any “lawful” debt that has been placed upon the nation in over 100 years. SO, Germany wants Greece to do something that it has not done. Was Germany’s debt “lawful” after WWI and WWII? Yes, they were. Why? Because Germany agreed to them just like Greece. Every country in the world forgave German debt but now Germany will not forgive Greek debt. Sounds like something out of the New (Renewed Covenant) Testament ((Matt. 18:27-35.

This is all I have to say about that.

Daniel’s Cycle of Time. (It was never a timeline!)

It has taken me much longer to write this follow-up to the earlier post about fleeing Babylon but I have been extremely busy. For an unknown reason Von has lost the use of her right leg and we camped out at the emergency room/hospital for a few days. We are now home but we still do not know the cause of the problem, although I suspect HaSatan is involved, and we do not know a solution other than to go to the Father in prayer and ask for His Healing. So with that being said, I want to give you an explanation of what the cycle of time is and is not, that I attached to the previous article. Continue reading
