Shalom to All of Our Friends and Brethren in Yahweh,

It is always a special occasion when brethren gather together to worship Yahweh Most High and His Son, Yahshua Messiah.

The writer of the epistle to the Hebrews admonishes us by saying, “Do not forsake the assembling of ourselves together,”Hebrews 10:25. This admonition applies not only to the weekly Sabbath, but also to Yahweh’s other Feast and Holy Days. Yahweh’s people are organized for worship with all things being done decently and in order. They are prepared to welcome the Holy Spirit by their acts of faith just as the Apostles and disciples of Yahshua did in Acts 2.

You will notice a modest and humble attitude among the brethren, ready to learn more of Yahweh’s way of life and what to expect for the future. Yahweh will never let us down, holding true to His promises. “So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising Yahweh and having favor with all the people. And Yahweh added to the congregation daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:46-47: NKJV)

The history of creation, the fall of man, and a great promise to the descendents of Abraham reassure us of an eventual recovery of harmony with Yahweh in an earth made new. Yahshua our Creator (Hebrews 1:1-2) and Saviour, emphasizes a greater spiritual aspect to all believers: he offers life to those who would implement His Father’s Laws and write them upon their hearts and in their minds (Jeremiah 31:31-33).

From the book of Acts we draw illustrations of those “called out of this world,” to assist us with problems we face daily. Today the book of Acts continues as we carry the message of salvation, just as our forefathers did. This message brings comfort and hope to the meek.

As prophecy unfolds, we are excited to read current world news events fulfilling Scripture. Yahweh’s Word does not return to Him void. News reports show an increase of instability affecting this tottering world. Disasters such as famines, pestilences, earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts, and warfare weaken the global economy. These are all signs of change for this earth. Signs that Yahshua warned about are found in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21.

Yahweh is revealing things to us, preparing us for the awesome time ahead. Our “Eyes on Israel” section shows the fulfilment of His people returning to the Holy Land and the trouble that will ensue. Brethren we must remain especially watchful and vigilant as the traps of the Adversary could soon shut suddenly. War is looming in the Middle East and again, it will be sudden like a flash of lightening striking with little advance notice.

Our interest on Israel is because our Saviour will return and establish his rule from this part of the world; he will save His people, when all appears lost. Pentecost reminded us that Yahweh is still calling His people to continue the work Yahshua left His disciples. That work must be done by each and every one of us. The time is urgent for us to fulfil the book of Acts. The Elect, or First fruits, which we were reminded of at Pentecost, will be in the First Resurrection (Revelation 20:6). Our mission is to be a light (Torah) to the world, to walk in Yahshua’s footsteps.

An important question to each of us is: Do we recognize that Satan is out to destroy us and our families? World events prove his time is short and that he is waging war on Yahweh’s people, Revelation 12:17. Let us use every opportunity to draw closer to Yahweh, pray constantly, and allow the Comforter to motivate all our daily activities. We are battling the forces of Evil. The Spirit of Yahweh and obedience to Yahweh’s Law will strengthen and encourage all who place their trust in Him. YPTC appreciates all the regular help given by the brethren through tithes and offerings. We hope to keep publishing more of Yahweh’s Truth as light in this dark world of unbelief, warning those who should be saved.

Thank you again for your loyalty, dedication, and faithfulness to Yahweh our Father, Yahshua our Saviour, and all of us who proclaim Yahweh’s Truth!

  • Fourth Month New Crescent Confirmed. A number of people sighted the visible crescent of the fourth month new moon. This moon was seen on the evening of July 4, which makes July 5 new moon day. . Much of eastern U.S. had cloud cover and rain. As always call in or email us with your findings.
  • Fifth Month New Moon. The fifth month new moon should be visible on the evening of August 2, 2008. This new moon should be easily seen in most of the world as long as weather conditions permit.
  • Feast of Weeks General Report. The brethren of YPTC came together to observe the Feast of Weeks in several locations. The feast was held at eight sites in the U.S., Trinidad, West Indies., Kenya Africa, and the U.K. As commanded in Psalm 81:1-4, "Sing aloud to Elohim our strength: Make a joyful noise to the Elohim of Jacob. Raise a song, and bring here the timbrel, The pleasant harp with the psaltery. Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast day. For it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the Elohim of Jacob."

    We rejoiced in Yahweh by hearing the law of Yahweh read, and praised him for his Holy Spirit. In Acts 2:38-39 Peter said, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahshua the Messiah to the remission of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For to you is the promise, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as Yahweh our Elohim shall call to him.” We were all in our appointed places in unity with the Spirit of our Father as He commanded us. Our zeal remains high as we pray for each other and this dynamic ministry of the last days. The brethren of YPTC were strengthened by our observation of this sacred time, praising Almighty Yahweh in Yahshua's name. Have a great summer as we begin to prepare for the next holy season.

  • Remember to Pray. Each time this newsletter is sent out, we always take the time to remind our readers to pray. The daily time that we spend in prayer helps bring us closer to Yahweh and Yahshua. Prayer changes things. It is an important way of expressing our love to Yahweh and of showing our love for our neighbor. We see how Peter and John in Acts 3:1-8 showed love for a lame man, “Now Peter and John were going up into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man that was lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the door of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked to receive an alms. And Peter fastening his eyes upon him, with John said, Look on us. And he gave heed to them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, ‘Silver and gold have I none; but what I have, that I give you. In the name of Yahshua the Messiah of Nazareth, walk.’ And he took him by the right hand, and raised him up: and immediately his feet and his ankle-bones received strength. And Leaping up, he stood, and began to walk; and he entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising Yahweh.” We thank Almighty Yahweh for his healing power, and we know that it comes to us through prayer. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective, Jacob 5:16.

    Please remember to pray for this ministry and those who are in need of prayer.
  • Yahweh’s Healing Power Witnessed. The power of Yahweh to heal His people has recently been seen through the healing of a dear brother, Winston Hosfelt. For those who have not heard, Winston was recently diagnosed with Lymphatic cancer. The doctors decided to remove some of the tumors while the rest would be treated through chemotherapy and radiation. The doctors did not give Brother Winston much hope for recovery, saying only that the cancer was so far advanced that the prognosis did not look very good.

    The call was put forth for all to pray and fast for our brother so that, if it was according to Yahweh’s will, Winston would be spared. Well, all thanks and praise be to Almighty Yahweh for healing our dear brother. Winston went for a checkup two weeks ago, and the doctor said that there was no sign of cancer. He said that they will continue to monitor Winston, but the future looks very good. Sister Cheryl Hosfelt (Winston’s sister-in-law) has informed us that Winston will soon visit a natural doctor in order to begin treatment to remove the chemo and radiation from his body. Although the conventional doctors believe the treatments they use work, many times the treatments also cause much harm to the body. By seeing a natural doctor, Winston will be able to use natural herbs to start the removal of the dangerous and harmful chemicals the other doctors have exposed his body to. We will give Almighty Yahweh all thanks and praise for the healing of our dear brother and for all others who have received a healing or blessing of any type, HalleluYAH!
  • Beginning Preparations for 7th Month Feast Days. There is a spiritual and a prophetic significance to be found in the observance of the seventh month feast days. The Feast of Trumpets signals Yahweh’s people to begin the ten days of introspection and repentance that conclude on the Day of Atonement. During this time, we look into the deep recesses of our hearts and minds, to discover and purge any hidden sin, and make sure that Yahweh’s Covenant Law abides within us. As commanded, we observe the Day of Atonement with a total fast, as we remember the atoning sacrifice of our Savior, Yahshua. However, when the marriage supper of the Lamb occurs, the awesomeness of this most holy day shall be turned into joy and the prophetic significance (the at-one-ment with Yahweh) shall be fulfilled. Yahshua referenced this prophetic event when He stated to His disciples at the last Passover observance that He would not drink the fruit of the vine until Yahweh’s Kingdom comes (Luke 22:18). That will be fulfilled at the marriage supper of the Lamb. “Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: ‘Hallelujah! For our Sovereign El Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!’ For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear. (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.) Then the angel said to me, ‘Write: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ And he added, ‘These are the true words of Yahweh.’” (Revelation 19:6-9; NIV)

    With the sounding of the trumpet heralding the end of the Day of Atonement, our attention turns to the Feast of Tabernacles observance (Numbers 10:8-10; Leviticus 25:9). This magnificent feast is observed for seven days and represents the coming Kingdom of Yahweh (Leviticus 23:39-43). This is immediately followed by the high holy day known as the “Last Great Day,” an eighth day observance that points toward the period described in Revelation 21-22. This feast points to a glorious new beginning, when Yahweh’s tabernacle is with men. How wonderful it is that we are blessed with the privilege of celebrating these feast days now in anticipation of their ultimate fulfillment to come.

    With the sanctification of the Feast of Trumpets new moon, the feast days of the seventh scriptural month are anticipated to be as follows:

    Feast of Trumpets ………………………………………………………………October 1, 2008
    Day of Atonement ………………………………………………………….….October 10, 2008
    1st High Day of Feast of Tabernacles ……………………….………………October 15, 2008
    Last Great Day …………………………….……………………………..……October 22, 2008

    We invite all sincere believers of Yahweh’s Truth to observe His commanded holy days. If you are considering keeping these holy days with YPTC, please contact us immediately for more information.

    We are planning to go back to Cherokee, North Carolina, for FOT. We will publish the information for you to make a reservation in our next newsletter.

YPTC Position on Tassels

After much discussion, prayer and searching the Scriptures, the elders of YPTC have arrived at the following position regarding tassels.

YPTC Position on the Wearing of Tassels Commandment

It is YPTC’s intention is to teach a balanced view concerning this commandment

of Yahweh, enabling all to worship Him in harmony together.

Many groups teach the law literally, while other groups spiritualize the law. We find that the tassels commandments of Numbers 15 and Deuteronomy 22 are to be fulfilled literally and spiritually.

The Israelites generally obeyed the commandments literally for the wrong reasons. Their minds were hardened, and they had never placed the commandments on their hearts (Jeremiah 31:31-33).

Today many groups claim the law to be “done away with,” nailed to the tree (Psalm 119:126 & Romans 3:31). We understand the Law to be good and holy, including the law of the tassels (Deuteronomy 6:24).

By way of the Spirit of the law and the letter of the law working together inwardly and outwardly, each True Believer is able to gain a greater portion of the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:32). We believe that the Holy Spirit compliments the tassel commandment since Yahshua stated, “But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, it will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you” (John 14:26), and leads us closer to Yahweh through the Spirit of the law.

The Scriptures make it clear that while this commandment was given to the nation of Israel as a whole, this is an individual commandment between Yahweh and each person, and as such only Yahweh judges accordingly. We as individuals should not be looking to judge those who may or may not be wearing the tassels.

We believe that the individual who wears tassels must be the one that decides how they will be constructed and where they should be attached. Those who choose to wear the tassels should be careful not to make them too long so as not to be guilty of doing as the Pharisees (Matthew 23:5).

Yahshua the Messiah fulfilled all righteousness by keeping every commandment. Let us do the same. This will allow Yahshua to send the Comforter (Yahweh’s Holy Spirit) in His Name to guide us into all Truth.

Salute to Israel, June 30, 2008. Israel’s 60th Anniversary of Independence

We were blessed to have a number of brethren attend the 60th anniversary march held in London, England, on June 30, 2008. Here is a brief report of this important event and some pictures of the festivities.

“What tremendous celebrations ensued as the Salute to Israel March, 2008, began from Green Park central London, England. The march distanced but a few miles, but every step was one of joy. Finally reaching Trafalgar Square the home of Nelson’s Column and the Canadian Embassy.

“A total attendance for both marches was around 46,000 men, women and children. We were all loyal supporters of the State of Israel and the rebirth of a new generation. Jubilant celebrations included thousands of elated people, each contributing their gift of joy for what Yahweh has done for them as a people, for all His rich blessings! Singing and dancing was part of this blissful celebration as we made the most of this time of solidarity. This was truly a time to be happy!

“As we all gathered into the square at Trafalgar, we were entertained by professional musicians and dancers. The Jewish people have been blessed with some of the most outstanding talent in the world today. Israel has accomplished so much in so little time. This day little Israel was recognized for its true values and contributions to the world.

“The Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks delivered an excellent discourse, providing encouragement and hope for all Israelites, even their enemies. The Jewish people have a great advantage since they were entrusted with the oracles of Yahweh. ‘Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be accomplished,’ Matthew 24:34.

“How wonderful it was to be around the Jewish people who love Yahweh and Torah. How our hearts turn to them in love that we might in some way lead them to Yahshua Messiah our Savior, Yahweh’s Word made flesh.

“Were we witnessing the generation that Yahshua was speaking of? That is up to Yahweh, and for us to remain faithful to the end.

“Let us continue to support Israel and stand on the promises Yahweh has made with her. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the coming of Meshiach, HalleluYah!

“Yahweh bless us and Israel!”

Eyes On Israel

In our last issue of this newsletter we read about the “Bush Scroll” and the possible consequences for the U.S. if the warning to President Bush is ignored. The judgment described in that document will apply to any nation or ruler who meddles in the affairs of Israel. Consider the following news report.

France, BEWARE!

As can be seen from the news article that follows, the French President Nicolas Sarkozy (who ironically is of Jewish descent) is now putting pressure on Israel to give up land and divide Israel. The same warning goes for him as for any other person who burdens themselves with Jerusalem, "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” (Zechariah 12:3; KJV)

France will take over the top position of the European Union on July 1st. Could we be seeing the beast of Revelation 13:1? “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea , having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” (KJV)

The following quotes come from the Jerusalem Post and y.net news.com.

“In stating the case for an independent Palestinian state, Sarkozy refused to answer personal questions, despite being asked about his family origins, about his Jewish grandfather who converted to Christianity and about his influence in terms of the president's attitude towards Israel (Sarkozy is also catholic).

"Even Sarkozy's closest friends admit that it is impossible to tell when he will ‘explode’. The sixth president of the Fifth Republic of France is known to be short-tempered and highly impulsive and to express himself in an undiplomatic manner. This may be the reason why his advisors insisted on a written interview."

Could this be the man who enters into an agreement for a cycle of seven and in the middle changes his mind and sets himself up as elohim? With every passing day there are more and more signs being given to the nations and us individually as to the coming of Yahshua. Yahshua said watch, are you?

Sarkozy is also trying to initiate a new Mediterranean Union on July 13th. All of these actions are not coincidences. There appears to be something at work here that none of us can put our finger directly on at this time. Could this be the Beast rising up out of the sea? What John saw was exactly that—a beast rising out of the Mediterranean Sea!

There will be much more news on Mr. Sarkozy in the coming months and you should check back as often as possible.

Now is not the time to fall asleep but rather to awaken and begin to show works worthy of repentance. Repent while there is still time.

Sarkozy: "Move Jews Out of Judea and Samaria"
by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) French President Nicolas Sarkozy asked the Knesset on Monday to recognize that "France will always be Israel's friend" - and promptly called for the division of Jerusalem and for the expulsion of the Jews from Judea and Samaria.

Speaking in French from the Knesset podium at a special session held in his honor, Sarkozy said, "Israel will always be every Jewish person's sanctuary. It is the only place where Jews will always be safe." He also called on the Palestinians to stop terrorism against Israel.

Your browser may not support display of this image.Your browser may not support display of this image.Having received a red-carpet welcome from the Israeli government, Sarkozy vowed, "France will always be Israel's friend and will always stand in the way of those calling to destroy it."

Stop Construction, Deport Jews, Divide Jerusalem.

He emphasized, however, that there will never be peace in the Middle East until Israel stops building in Judea and Samaria, and said that the Knesset should pass a law to compensate and deport all the Jews currently living there.

Sarkozy further said that Jerusalem must be divided into two capitals, including one for a future Palestinian state.

The speech was the first by a French president in the Knesset since Francois Mitterrand addressed the plenum in 1982.

Responses

In response, Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik warned that terror has no boundaries, and that both Iranian nuclear power and Islamist terrorism "will reach Paris after Jerusalem and Tel Aviv."

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, in his greetings to the French president, said, "We thank you for your courage, for your principles and for your friendship. On behalf of the Israeli people and the State of Israel, I salute you… Israel is now hoping for just one more miracle – the miracle of peace. We believe it will come."

Opposition leader and Likud party chairman MK Binyamin Netanyahu said, in his address at the session, that Israel would never agree to cede the Golan Heights or divide Jerusalem. Calling Sarkozy a "true friend of Israel," Netanyahu said, nevertheless that "Jerusalem will never be divided, just as no person would ever think of dividing any European state. We will never return to the 1967 borders and we will never withdraw from the Golan Heights."

Arab MKs jeered the Likud lawmaker as he addressed the Knesset, forcing the Speaker to threaten the hecklers that she would expel them from the legislative chamber if they continued to interrupt the speech. "This is very unpleasant," she rebuked them.

Orlev: French President Needs Lessons in History, Geography

MK Zevulun Orlev, Chairman of the National Religious Party, said afterwards, "Sarkozy should stay here a bit longer in order to learn some history, namely, that Jerusalem never belonged to Islam, but only to the Jews. He should also take a geography lesson, and visit Sderot and the transient camps of the Gush Katif expellees before he proposes another [Jewish] expulsion and retreat to the 1967 borders."

"His friendship with Israel must be based on those two lessons," Orlev said.

MK Benny Elon (National Union) said he agrees that there should be two states, but with slight differences than Sarkozy's proposal: "One state should be Jordan, on the east bank of the Jordan River, and Israel on the west side. No other state should be established between them. If Sarkozy agrees with me about these borders, we'll be able to come to an agreement on the rest."

MK Ruby Rivlin (Likud) said, "Dividing Jerusalem into two entities will not bring peace, but will rather eternalize the conflict - and the settlements are not an obstacle to peace, but rather that which helped give the Jewish People a permanent presence in its land."

Sarkozy's Schedule

President Sarkozy visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum Monday morning, accompanied by President Shimon Peres. The distinguished visitor is also scheduled to meet with the parents of kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit, who are French citizens, and with MK Netanyahu. Sarkozy will also meet with Palestinian Authority Chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas before wrapping up his three-day visit on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Olmert's spokesman Mark Regev said that diplomatic talks between France and Israel will focus on Iran's nuclear program and on the newly-revived Israeli-Syrian peace talks. Olmert initiated resumption of indirect talks with Syria through Turkish mediators in Ankara several weeks ago. Arab media report that he allowed the issue of ceding the Golan Heights to be placed on the negotiating table.

On July 13, Sarkozy will host a conference in Paris where he hopes to bring together Prime Minister Olmert and Syrian President Bashar Assad.

8/8/08 @ 8:08 P.M.

The number eight has been related to some interesting events that will occur in the near future. It is interesting to note how numbers can many times show significance in life situations. The subject of spiritual significance of numbers is examined by Dr. Bulinger in his renowned work, The Companion Bible. There we find in Appendix Ten the following quotes:

“Numbers are used in Scripture, not merely as in Nature, with supernatural design, but with spiritual significance, which may be summarized as follows:--… Eight. Denotes resurrection, regeneration,; a new beginning or commencement . . .”

With this thought in mind, let’s consider the following contemplations. Over the last month there have been nearly 400 earthquakes of a magnitude of four or greater that have literally shaken our world. For those who do not know, the massive earthquake that recently shook China measured eight on the Richter scale. This was an average measurement from all recording stations.

The China quake happened 88 days before the Olympics are scheduled to start on 8-8-08 at 8:08 pm. The modern Olympics is steeped in the paganism of ancient Greece. Most people are unaware that the Olympics are still dedicated to Zeus, and that the eternal flame is ignited on top of Mt. Olympus by using a magnifying glass to concentrate the sun’s rays to start the fire. That flame is then kept burning until it reaches its destination. They use a series of runners to carry the torch that bears the eternal flame. All of this comes straight out of paganism.

When one speaks of a “new beginning,” our mind usually draws up pictures of good. However, as we continue to see the evil of this world growing greater and greater, we question if perhaps the next “new beginning” will be the time spoken of by the prophet Joel.

“Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of Yahweh is coming; Surely it is near, A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness. As the dawn is spread over the mountains, So there is a great and mighty people; There has never been anything like it, Nor will there be again after it To the years of many generations. A fire consumes before them And behind them a flame burns. The land is like the garden of Eden before them But a desolate wilderness behind them, And nothing at all escapes them. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses; And like war horses, so they run. With a noise as of chariots, They leap on the tops of the mountains, Like the crackling of a flame of fire consuming the stubble, Like a mighty people arranged for battle. Before them the people are in anguish; All faces turn pale. They run like mighty men, They climb the wall like soldiers; And they each march in line, Nor do they deviate from their paths. They do not crowd each other, They march everyone in his path; When they burst through the defenses, They do not break ranks. They rush on the city, They run on the wall; They climb into the houses, They enter through the windows like a thief. Before them the earth quakes, The heavens tremble, The sun and the moon grow dark And the stars lose their brightness. Yahweh utters His voice before His army; Surely His camp is very great, For strong is he who carries out His word. The day of Yahweh is indeed great and very awesome, And who can endure it? ‘Yet even now’ declares Yahweh ‘Return to Me with all your heart, And with fasting, weeping and mourning; And rend your heart and not your garments.’ Now return to Yahweh your Elohim, For He is gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, abounding in loving-kindness And relenting of evil. Who knows whether He will not turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him, Even a grain offering and a drink offering For Yahweh your Elohim? Blow a trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, proclaim a solemn assembly, Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and the nursing infants. Let the bridegroom come out of his room and the bride out of her bridal chamber. Let the priests, Yahweh’s ministers, Weep between the porch and the altar, And let them say, ‘Spare Your people, O Yahweh, and do not make Your inheritance a reproach, A byword among the nations. Why should they among the peoples say, “Where is their Elohim?”’” (Joel 2:1-17; NASU)

This will be a time of great trouble. It is the coming birth pains of the Messiah. “Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know full well that the day of Yahweh will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, ‘Peace and safety!’ then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-4; NASU)

The birth pains have begun, can you feel them? “For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.” (Romans 8:22-23; NASU)

The earth is groaning with pain. Yahweh’s physical people, those of Israel and Judah, have forsaken His law and have corrupted themselves just as in the days of Sodom. The prophet Joel is calling the people to repent, just as John the Baptist did in his ministry. “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, ‘Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Prepare ye the way of Yahweh, make his paths straight.”’” (Matthew 3:1-3; KJV)

This is also the message of this ministry: Repent, for the Kingdom of Yahweh is at hand! The people of this world are headed for a terrible day when there will be no food, no transportation, when the Beast system will require each person to worship it and take the mark that it shall decide to place upon those whom it chooses. The scriptures state plainly that those who do not accept the mark of the Beast will be put to death. The civil liberties as we know them now will soon be a thing of the past. The next few world events could bring all the world’s governments to an end. Then a one world government would be set up, which would bring about the end.

Is it possible that the “new beginning” will be a time of great upheaval? You must look at the signs that are occurring daily and come to the conclusion that, yes, it is a time of great trouble. We know that the Olympics are done as a memorial to pagan sun worship and that Yahweh hates it with all His might. Yet the entire world is looking to China with eyes of joy. Will you sit and watch this abomination as it unfolds upon your television? To do so is to give your vote of approval to these detestable games. Could the “new beginning” be the end of the world as we know and the beginning of the upheavals spoken of through the prophets? Whether there is significance to this year’s Olympics and the number eight remains to be seen. However, we must wait for Yahweh to show us what all of this means.

Will you be ready? Now is the time to call upon Yahweh and ask Him to forgive you of your sins. Sin is defined in 1 John 3:4 as follows: “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.” (KJV)

We must all turn away from this evil and adulterous generation. It is not too late to turn and repent. Just as we are told in Matthew 25:1-8: "Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. But at midnight there was a shout, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps.” (NASU)

We are putting forth this message with the hope that you will heed this call and repent. Please notice that all the virgins slept but, when the call went forth only the wise were accepted. You can be among those wise ones if you act now. Tomorrow may be too late, so why wait.

Closing Thoughts

“…Take heed to the ministry you have received in Yahweh that you fulfil it.” (Colossians 4:17)

By the time this newsletter reaches you, it will probably be the beginning of the 4th scriptural month. Remember the new moon is a commanded time of worship by Almighty Yahweh.

The brethren from around the various countries of the world have communicated their love and concern for you, that you remain steadfast and unmovable in the faith of Yahshua Messiah.

Already we are planning Yahweh’s upcoming Holy Days: Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacles. As each Holy Day ends, we eagerly anticipate the next, living for the worship of Yahweh. Our daily priorities are based around His Word, giving us encouragement and strength to enjoy life to the full, hope and confidence for the future.

The Bible warnings are being preached more fervently by Yahweh’s ministers. Why is this? If we are strong in faith and steadfastly remain His servants we will not be caught unawares. The stronger our teaching and warnings, the more active hate will be thrown at us! World lawlessness (breaking His Law) is out of control; evil practice is not only condoned but encouraged.

The manipulators don’t realize that they are being manipulated; they are blind but not speechless. We must be resilient and vigilant to the ploys of this world.

Let us not be caught unawares, but cling to every Word that Yahweh breathes.We may lose some battles in life, but ultimately Yahweh will gain the victory through Yahshua His Messiah. HalleluYah!

The world economy props up Satan’s system; you need only to review global financial reports to realize it is poised for collapse. Money will be worthless!

“But watch you at every season, making supplication, that you may prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man”. (Luke 21:36)

“Take heed brethren, lest there shall be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living Elohim: but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called Today; lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin…”. (Hebrews 3:12,13)

Let us continue to pray continually for one another and for our King’s return, allowing Yahweh’s Spirit and Law to have free course in our lives.

May Almighty Yahweh Bless All of His People,

Your Brethren in Yahweh’s Truth!
