Shalom Brethren and Sisters, in the Majestic Names of Yahweh our Father and the True Messiah Yahshua, His Only Begotten Son

“Grace to you and peace from Yahweh our Father and the Master Yahshua the Messiah.” (Philemon 1:3). It is our delight to correspond with those we truly love in the faith of Yahshua, to reach out even to those with soft hearts.

We thank and praise the Holy One of Israel; may He be exalted for all His benefits toward us. Daily, His direction can be seen as Yahweh’s people unite in that bond of peace. In John 13:35 Yahshua reminds us, “By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.” This love must be shown at all times, especially under the assault of trials and tribulations. Have we learned to forgive one another, to continue putting up with one another, to encourage one another? Relying on the Holy Spirit unites us as a team, working together. There is no room for bitterness, regrets or grudges, only living daily with His Messiah.

With love within our hearts and minds, we are able to fulfil the Shema (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) and be united together as a body of believers with Almighty Yahweh and our Savior Yahshua. Love is the key to fulfilling the two greatest commandments (Mark 12:28-34), and to finding Yahweh’s salvation, "For Yahweh so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For Yahweh did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of Yahweh's one and only Son.” (John 3:16-18; NIV)

News, Notes & Notables

Feast Days of the Seventh Month. From now until the Feast of Tabernacles we will be reminding all our readers to make preparations to keep Yahweh’s Seventh month feast days. The dates to remember are as follows:

Feast of Trumpets—October 1, 2008 Day of Atonement—October 10, 2008 Feast of Tabernacles—October 15, 2008 Last Great Day—October 22, 2008

The Feast of Tabernacles is the one feast during the year when we unite together in a large gathering of our spiritual family. We will once again be meeting together at the Cherokee KOA in Cherokee, NC. It is the responsibility of those attending to make your reservation with the camp management. They can be contacted by phone at: 1-800-825-8352. Camping spots are still available. Anyone needing help with their arrangements can contact YPTC at 1-888-FOR-YPTC.

It is our hope and prayer that all of the brethren will be able to attend this year’s Feast of Tabernacles. With gasoline prices now at more than $4 a gallon, and probably even higher by October, this will be a major expense. Remember to be faithful in keeping back the feast tithe so that you have the money to attend the feast. Remember that we are part of Yahweh’s spiritual temple that is being built in these end days. Yahweh’s name is upon His people and we are commanded to gather with our brethren at that place to seek Yahweh.

“Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. Eat the tithe of your grain, new wine and oil, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim at the place he will choose as a dwelling for his Name, so that you may learn to revere Yahweh your Elohim always. But if that place is too distant and you have been blessed by Yahweh your Elohim and cannot carry your tithe (because the place where Yahweh will choose to put his Name is so far away), then exchange your tithe for silver, and take the silver with you and go to the place Yahweh your Elohim will choose. Use the silver to buy whatever you like: cattle, sheep, wine or other fermented drink, or anything you wish. Then you and your household shall eat there in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim and rejoice. And do not neglect the Levites living in your towns, for they have no allotment or inheritance of their own.” (Deuteronomy 14:22-27; NIV)

New Moon for the 5th Scriptural Month.

The new moon for the fifth scriptural month should be visible on the evening of Saturday, August 2, making August 3 new moon day. This new moon should be easily seen in most locations around the globe

Be sure to watch for the new moon and report what you see. Call us at: 1-888-FOR-YPTC to verify the sighting

Encouraging Signs Keep Us Focused Upon the Kingdom

There is no doubt that we are living in tremendous days, with efforts being made to establish a Palestinian State by the end of the year, the formation of a Mediterranean Union by the end of July, oil and food prices continuing to rise, the Temple Institute manufacturing priestly garments, as well as talk of a military strike against Iran by the end of the year. Strange things are already happening in this world, and we wonder if it could be possible that we are in the beginning of Daniel's seventieth week. The Feast of Trumpets and the unusual series of solar and lunar eclipses may just be another anomaly to add to the long list of prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Yahshua said to His disciples, "It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father has set within His own authority," Acts 1:7.

It is not for us to know the time of His Coming, and there are very good reasons for that. We should be ready at all times for His Coming (Matthew 24:44), and if we are ready at all times, then there is no need to set dates for His return. Subsequently, nobody should be arguing over the date of His return—we all need to be concentrating on making sure we are personally ready to meet Him in the air, were He to come today.

The fact is, Yahshua the Messiah is coming back (John 14:3). The Scriptures indicate now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). Tomorrow never comes. If Yahshua came today, would you be ready to meet Him? If not, here is what to do. Confess to Yahweh that you are a sinner, and that you deserve death because of your sins. Ask Yahweh to forgive you for your sins, and thank Him for sending His only Son Yahshua the Messiah into the world to bear the punishment your sins deserved. The Word declares that "Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Yahweh shall be saved,” Romans 10:13.

Be a Disciple, Not Just a Convert – Follow Yahshua!

There is an indication in the scriptures that rejection of Messiah as recorded in the evangels wasn't always a denial of Yahshua's Messiahship but rather an unwillingness to follow Him. Everyone wants to enjoy the harvest, but few want to be workers. The young man in Matthew 19:16 who came to Yahshua seeking eternal life was like this. He wasn't willing to become a true disciple of Yahshua’s by following and obeying Yahshua. He accepted Yahshua’s answer, but was unable to walk away from the wealth that prevented him from making a total commitment. That young man walked away without eternal life that day, and it wasn't a problem with belief—it was his own rejection of what was required. The passage in James 2:19 tell us: "the demons believe also, and tremble." Belief alone doesn't make you a disciple any more than it would make a demon a disciple.

Many believe, but never take the next step of becoming a disciple! "Therefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not everyone that says to me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Master, Master, did we not prophecy in your name, and by your name cast out demons, and by your name did many mighty works?’ And then I will profess to them, ‘I never knew you: depart from me, you that work lawlessness.’” (Matthew 7:20-23)

Those who were told to depart seemed to have believed in Yahshua, but they turned down salvation because they were unwilling to give up those things which did not allow them to be committed disciples of Yahshua.

We can't help but think that the separation of faith from obedience is a new teaching. It seems more logical that belief and obedience should always go hand in hand, as does making Yahshua the Master of one's life. The idea of "how little can I do to still be saved" is somewhat confusing. Further, note this translation ends with "lawlessness" without saying what the actual sin of the people was.... yet the actual word in the Greek is anomos that is “without torah or having no torah.” It seems the sin in their life was failing to obey Torah. These people accepted the salvation that was offered, but did not take the next logical faith step of obedience—of turning one's life over to following Yahweh’s will. It seems as if they forgot Yahshua’s words in John 14:15: "If you love me, keep my commandments."

Today is the day -- the choice is now. Let's all "walk the walk" and not just "talk the talk." Let's not be satisfied to only believe in Him, but to also follow Him completely without any reservation.

The Trumans

Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment, pt. 3

Previously in the Truman’s… A police officer came to the Truman’s house in response to their house break-in. The damage to the house had already been done, but the officer asked Mr. Truman to compile a list of stolen items and then to call to tell him. There is then a flash-back to earlier in the day where we hear a conversation between Wayne and his mom. There is then a time shift to the next day after the robbery. Mr. Truman gets a call from the officer that came to his house the evening before how the robber has been caught.

After Sam, Mr. Truman, got off the phone with Officer Greene, he called his wife to let her know about the situation, and how the person who had robbed their house was caught by the police.

“Yeah, the officer told me they caught him earlier this afternoon,” said Sam to his wife, Karen. “That’s good news, hopefully the officer was right about having a lead on our belongings,” she replied.

“Yeah, I still need to give the officer the list of all the stuff that was stolen,” he said, “I think I’ll stop down at the police station later and give him the list.”

“Why don’t you just call him up and tell him? That would be much easier,” she asked.

“Well, I just feel like stopping in,” he replied.

Suddenly Karen realized what was going on. “You just want to stop in and see the person who robbed us, don’t you?” she asked.

“Honey, it’s just that this person not only stole from us, but also took our sense of security too. I’m not going to do anything rash; I just need to see the person face to face,” he replied.

“Alright, but I’m coming with you,” she said, “And Peter will have to come too. He’ll be the only one home tonight since Phoebe had plans already to go to a friend’s house, and Matt has to work late tonight, and I don’t want to leave Peter by himself.”

“Alright, how does going at six o’clock sound?” he asked.

“That’s a good time. We’ll plan for that then,” she replied back to her husband.

At around 6:10 that evening, Mr. Truman, Mrs. Truman, and Peter arrived at the police department. Mr. Truman gave Officer Greene the list of items that were stolen, and he also asked if it was alright if he and his family could see the person who had robbed his house. The officer agreed to the request, and went with them to show them the way and also to supervise them.

They all walked to the jail cell area and saw a young man leaning on the bars of his cell. To the Truman family’s surprise though, the young man wasn’t alone but he had some company—a woman and a boy were with him too.

“Wayne?!” exclaimed Peter to the boy who was standing next to the woman, “What are you doing here?”

“I’m visiting my brother,” Wayne replied who was just as surprised to see Peter, “What are you doing here?”

“We’re here to see the person who robbed our house last night,” Peter replied back.

The young man in the cell hung his head in shame and sighed and said, “Yeah that would be me.”

Mr. Truman took a step forwards towards the young man and asked him, “What’s your name?”

“My name is Eric Hall, sir,” the young man replied looking upwards toward Mr. Truman.

“Why did you rob our house?” asked Mr. Truman, whose face looked like could have been carved from marble stone.

Eric took a deep breath and started his story, “I know what I did was wrong, and I know now that it was very stupid and foolish of me to do it too, but I’ll tell you why I did it, as stupid as it is. It all began when Wayne came home yesterday. I heard him come in the door, and was about to come out to see him since I heard him say my name, but then I heard him talking to my mom about something. I turned down the volume on the television because the conversation sounded interesting. Wayne had forgotten his jacket at, well, your house. He mentioned an address and then started talking about your family going out to a theater that evening. The conversation wasn’t as interesting as I thought it was going to be, and was about to turn the volume on the television back up, until I heard Wayne say something else. He said that you had nice things at your house; at least they were nicer than we have at our apartment. So I connected all the dots and saw that I had an opportunity to help myself to some of your stuff. I figured that since I was poor, that it wouldn’t be wrong to take a little something to help out my mom and brother. I called two of my friends on the phone and told them about the proposition I had, and they both agreed to help me. We met at your house, snuck up to the door, smashed a window, and unlocked the door. Once I was inside though, everything changed. In my mind, I pictured a family sitting down with children playing around them, and seeing myself as one of them, and then all of a sudden someone broke down my door and took all of my belongings. I pictured how I would feel if that would happen to me and how horrible it would be, and that’s when I realized that it was exactly what I was doing. I was making a terrible mistake. I was just about to call the whole thing off when everything happened so fast. Your dog woke up and started barking at us. My one friend panicked and hit your dog, while in the process knocking over a lamp. We were all scared then because we made so much noise and didn’t know if the neighbors heard us. I told them both that I didn’t care about the stuff and that we should get out of there. They both thought that we should grab something first since we were already there, but I didn’t listen to either of them. I just ran out of the house as fast as I could away from what had just happened. I turned myself in this afternoon because I just couldn’t handle the guilt of what I had done. I’m so sorry—please don’t make me stay in jail!”

“Wow,” said Mr. Truman, “I don’t know what to say.”

“Sam, we need to talk privately for a minute,” said Mrs. Truman, as she looked at her husband.

Mr. and Mrs. Truman went off in the far corner of the room and started discussing something. It was really awkward for everyone else in the room since none of them knew what to make of it. Finally after about ten minutes of discussion, Mr. and Mrs. Truman came back to the rest of group that was gathered around the jail cell.

“We talked it over, and…,” said Mrs. Truman as she looked at her husband hoping he would catch on to continue her sentence.

Mr. Truman saw the cue and said, “We talked it over and we were wondering, Officer Greene, if the charges could be dropped on Eric?”

Eric looked through his cell bars at both Mr. and Mrs. Truman in wonder and said, “Why would you ever do that for me? I mean, I broke into your house.”

Mr. Truman continued, “My wife and I have come to the decision that, although what you initially did was wrong, in the end you realized your mistake and were even willing to confess what you did wrong. You even turned yourself in to the police, which shows us that you have a conscience. Besides, you didn’t actually steal anything from us; it was your ‘friends’ that did that.”

“Wow,” said Eric, “Now I don’t know what to say.”

Even Wayne and his mom were speechless as to what to say.

“Wait a minute,” said Officer Greene who was also surprised to what he was hearing, “You mean to tell me that you are willing to let this boy off without any judgment happening to him?”

“That’s right,” replied Mrs. Truman

“But there is one thing though that we do request of Eric if we do drop the charges,” said Mr. Truman, “Eric, do you have a job?”

“No sir,” replied Eric.

“Well, you need to get one then. You won’t feel so prone to stealing if you have an income,” said Mr. Truman, “And if you have trouble finding a job, give me a call and I’ll see what I can do to help you get one.”

“Yes sir, I’ll get one as soon as I get out,” replied Eric who was smiling from ear to ear, “And thank you so much for wanting to help me. That is more than generous of you.”

“Wow, I don’t believe what I’m hearing!” exclaimed Officer Greene, “You want to let him go, and now you’re giving him advice and are willing to help him out. I’ve never seen this amount of kindness before to anyone, more or less to someone who just broke into your house. Since I’m the only one left to drop the charges, I’m going to let you go, Eric. This won’t even show on your record.”

“Wow, this is really too much,” said , as he looked down to see Officer Greene unlock his cell and open the door, “Thank you so much everyone.”

When Eric was released from his cell, he immediately went to his mom and brother and gave them both a huge hug. He then turned his attention to the Truman family.

“Thank you so much,” said Eric. almost on the point of tears, “You have no idea what this means to me.”

“You’re very welcome. By the way,” said Mr. Truman holding out his hand, “I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced. My name is Sam Truman, and this is my wife Karen, and my son Peter.”

Eric took Mr. Truman’s hand and shook it firmly, “It’s nice to meet all of you. I still can’t believe I don’t have to stay in jail. Thank you so much for your kindness to me.”

“It’s just like it says in the Bible,” replied Mr. Truman, “Mercy triumphs over judgment.”

Feast of Tabernacles 2008 Update

With the Feast of Shavuoth now past, our attention is turning towards the upcoming, and rapidly approaching, Feast of Tabernacles. We must turn our minds towards the preparation for such a wonderful and renewing spiritual time together with Yahweh and our brethren of like precious faith. What a glorious time of worship and fellowship we expect to have as we gather with brothers and sisters, some whom we have not seen in a year or more

We will once again be gathering in the beautiful Smokey Mountains of North Carolina at the Cherokee KOA. The staff there have always made us feel most welcome and have done all in their power to accommodate us. We have been informed that there has been an addition to the lodging at the campground. This consists of new units called “Lodges.” In the past there were cabins, which are small one or two room dwellings with no bath or kitchens available in them. Then there are the Kottages which consist of cabins that have a bath and kitchen. These have proven to be nice for those who must travel a long distance and are not able to bring along all that is needed for a stay of eight to ten days.

GREAT NEW LODGES AT THIS YEARS FEAST “Bring your rod and reel and prepare for great fishing when you visit the Cherokee/Great Smokies KOA. In 2008 we’ve added 8 great new-style Kamping Lodges–some with lofts–that sleep up to six. With comfortable beds, a private bathroom, kitchenette and free Wi-Fi access, it’s like having your own riverside vacation home. For even more family fun, we’ve also added 2 new teepees!”

This was taken directly from the KOA website and describes what appear to be some nice accommodations. They appear to be like the Kottages but they say they are nicer; we can only wait and see.

Each person who is planning to attend the Feast of Tabernacles with YPTC will be required to “MAKE YOUR OWN RESERVATIONS” this year. We are doing this because of the down turn in the US economy. Since we are a small organization we were forced to take a 50% deposit before the feast which meant some had to be able to send in a sizeable amount well before they arrived at the feast site. By making your own reservations you will not be required to send in that money. The only requirements that the KOA requires is a one day deposit to hold the registration.

Here are the guidelines for the reservations:

You must have called KOA no later than SEPTEMBER 1st @ 1-800-825-8352 or you will not be guaranteed a site with the group. After September 1st all sites that we have reserved will revert back to the campground and you will not be able to reserve close to YPTC people. October is one of the busiest times of the year for the mountains because people travel to see the beauty of the changing leaves. When you call you must tell them that you want to register under the sites reserved by Karl Bloodworth. When you make your reservations you must be prepared to give a ONE DAY deposit. ANY CANCELLATION MUST BE DONE BY SEPTEMBER 23rd. After that date you will forfeit your deposit. The campground has given us a 20% discount because we are returning for our third year and therefore you will NOT be given the weekly rate. The management actually figured the discount and established the fact that this saves us money by doing the cost this way. The prices that will be given below are already figured with the 20 % discount. The following prices are for nine nights, starting with the night of the 14th and ending with the night of the 22nd. Anyone staying longer or shorter must work out the cost with the campground. One room cabin……………………………… $470.52 Two Room Cab………………………………. $593.78 Off River Kottages………………………………………. $1316.05 On River Lodges………………………………………… $1316.05 On River Call the offices of KOA for information and prices on camp sites.

If you have any questions please feel free to call 1-888-FOR-YPTC and Karl will do his best to answer your questions. Thank you, and may everyone have a blessed FOT.

Eyes on Israel

It can truly be said that we are living in exciting times. As you can see from this section, there is much to report, and we are really only skimming the surface.

Reports are coming in from all over the world that drought is striking in many places, even in the land of Israel. “Thus says Yahweh of hosts, ‘Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains, bring wood and rebuild the temple, that I may be pleased with it and be glorified,’ says Yahweh. ‘You look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow it away. Why?’ declares Yahweh of hosts, ‘Because of My house which lies desolate, while each of you runs to his own house. Therefore, because of you the sky has withheld its dew and the earth has withheld its produce. I called for a drought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on men, on cattle, and on all the labor of your hands.’” (Haggai 1:7-11; NASU)

Yahweh can and does bring drought upon a sinful nation. The U.S.A. is experiencing droughts in many areas, as well as flooding which in turn also wipes out crops. A large portion of the land of Israel is desert, which has to be completely irrigated to achieve any type of growing season. The Israeli people are well known for making the desert bloom. As you travel through the land, you can see acres and acres of greenhouses. There are also large ponds in the desert that are there just for raising fish because fish is a large part of the Israeli diet. All of this growing requires millions of gallons of fresh water. What most people fail to realize is the fact that the countries of Jordan and Syria also pull a large amount of their water from the Jordan River. For this reason the water level in the Dead Sea is dropping daily. There is not enough water entering to sustain the level of the sea.

Most water in the Jordan comes from the melting snows of Mount Herman. Mount Herman is on the northern border between Israel and Syria with a large portion of Mt. Herman being in Syria. This is why it is so important for Israel to control the Golan Heights because to relinquish one inch of land back to Syria is to relinquish control over Israel's water supply. It should be noted that a country bent on Israel's destruction would not hesitate to withhold water from Israel.

Worst Water Crisis in 80 Years

(The following is a quote from IsraelNN.com)

Israel Water Authority chief Uri Shans announced this morning at a special press conference in Tel Aviv that Israel faces “the worst crisis in 80 years, since they started keeping records” in its water supply. Major sources of drinking water in Israel, including the Kinneret and the Mountain Aquifer are all below their “red lines” and the Coastal Aquifer has fallen below the “black line” indicating it will suffer rapid and possibly irreversible damage. Shani predicted that the Kinneret itself could fall below its “black line” by December 2008. “Mainly,” according to Shani,”Israel’s water need shave been met by borrowing on the future.”

To ameliorate the crisis, the Israel Water Authority has authorized the following emergency measures: water will be pumped from the sources of the Kinneret (water which should have reached the Kinneret in 2010), desalination plants will increase output and polluted wells will be purified. Water use for gardening will also be limited. The price of water will nearly double from NIS 3.90 per cubic meter to NIS 7.40. The price hike and a government NIS 1 billion investment will be used over the next five years for water infrastructure, desalination, and sewage treatment for agriculture.

Complacency Strikes Again!

As can be seen from this report, there are people who believe that all things will continue as they always have. Please do not let this attitude come into your hearts. At YPTC we are trying our best to warn the people of this world that the "Kingdom of Yahweh" is at hand. “For when they shall say, ‘Peace and safety;’ then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3; KJV)

In the time of the end the most people will have a complacent attitude that will cause them to be caught unaware and unprepared. “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for you know not when the time is.” (Mark 13:33; KJV)

Every person on the face of this planet should be taking heed to this warning. Take heed, watch and pray! Yahweh is giving us signs on the earth and in the heavens. Let us awaken from the sleep that has blinded our eyes.

Tamari: 'Water Shortage Isn't That Bad'

(The following is a quote from IsraelNN.com)

The Head of the Israel's Farmer Federation, Yoram Tamari, shed new light on Israel's current water shortage following a nationwide billboard campaign urging Israelis to cut down on water consumption.

"While the current water shortage in Israel is worrying and everyone should do their utmost to conserve water, it is not a new phenomena and doesn't merit a place in the history books."

Tamari said, "the recent proclamations that this year's drought is the worst in 80 years is not necessarily accurate. In reality, the situation was far worse throughout most of the nineties. Just like back then, people made an effort to conserve water for a number of years until we were eventually blessed with years of increased rainfall that refilled the reservoirs."

Stars Are Falling From Heaven

“Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” (Luke 21:10-11; KJV)

It should give us great encouragement to know that Yahweh can and will confuse the wise of this world. We believe that such phenomenon will increase as we see the end of the age of man drawing to a close. This passage is very significant because even with all the technology that is available, the watchers did not see this one coming. This is something that should be viewed as sign from heaven, but instead scientists and the powers that be will only be concerned that it got past their modern instruments. “Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not Yahweh made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of Yahweh the world through its wisdom did not come to know Yahweh, Yahweh was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Messiah impaled, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Messiah the power of Yahweh and the wisdom of Yahweh. Because the foolishness of Yahweh is wiser than men, and the weakness of Yahweh is stronger than men. For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but Yahweh has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and Yahweh has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised Yahweh has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before Yahweh. But by His doing you are in Messiah Yahshua, who became to us wisdom from Yahweh, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, 31 so that, just as it is written, "LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN YAHWEH." (1 Corinthians 1:20-31; NASU)

This is why we see all this as signs from Yahweh, because He has opened our eyes. HalleluYAH!

Meteor Surprises Israel

(The following is a quote from IsraelNN.com)

An unexpected meteor cut through Israel's sky from east to west last night, causing panic throughout central Israel and bafflement among astronomers who failed to predict it.

Around 8 PM, Israel Police 911 units began received alarmed calls from skyward-looking citizens citizens: "Several calls were registered in which callers described having seen a shiny trail in the Sharon district…We crosschecked with the Israel Defense Forces and its ground units, and came up with no explanation” according to the Israel Police Spokesperson.

Israeli astronomers noted that the meteor entered the atmosphere in the same direction as the Earth's rotation; this factor made is especially bright and also relatively slow as it travelled across the night sky.

Priest Being Fitted!!!

Who would have ever imagined that we would see this coming to pass in our lifetime? This is extremely significant because it could very well fulfil the prophecies of Daniel 9 and12. First the morning and evening sacrifices must be re-established on the Temple Mount.

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27; KJV)

Future Temple Jewish Priests Get Fitted For Holy Garments

(The following is from IsraelNN.com)

by Ze'ev Ben-Yechiel

As the Jewish People continue their national return to their ancestral homeland, tailors at the Temple Institute in Jerusalem’s Old City began taking measurements of Kohanim (the priestly tribe designated to run the Temple services) earlier this month in anticipation of an even bigger event -- the dedication of the Third Temple.

Yehuda Glick, director of the Temple Institute, presided over the first-ever fitting of Kohanim for their priestly garments. “Today, in this room, Kohanim are being measured for the first time in 2,000 years for the type of garments they will be wearing in the rebuilt Temple," announced Glick to an audience of rabbis, reporters and cameramen on hand to witness the historic event.

Watching…Are You watching?

As you have read this latest newsletter you have probably realized that there is urgency in our voices to prepare for what lies just ahead. So as we close let us make a few more points.

“Surely Yahweh your Elohim does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7; NASU).

Yahweh’s Word is true, and this passage will have its fulfilment in these last days. Those people who are the true disciples of Yahshua will have Yahweh’s will revealed to them. This agrees with Deuteronomy 29:29, “The secret things belong to Yahweh our Elohim, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (NKJV)

We look to Almighty Yahweh to reveal the secret things to us as we obey His covenant and keep His commandments. In order for that to take place, we must have spiritual insight and understanding by giving us eyes that see and ears that hear (shema). “But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear.” (Matthew 13:16; NKJV)

This ministry, along with other sincere bodies of believers, is seeking to have eyes to see and understand what is happening in the way of the fulfilment of prophecy. The Apostle Paul actually says that the gift of prophecy should be desired. “Pursue love, yet desire earnestly spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy. For one who speaks in a tongue [language] does not speak to men but to Yahweh; for no one understands, but in his spirit he speaks mysteries. But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation. One who speaks in a tongue [language] edifies himself; but one who prophesies edifies the congregation. Now I wish that you all spoke in tongues, but even more that you would prophesy; and greater is one who prophesies than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the congregation may receive edifying.” (1 Corinthians 14:1-5; NASU)

So let us pray that Yahweh would give us the ability to look at current events and prophecy of the coming Kingdom of Yahweh. Bible prophecy allows both the diligent and the skeptical to test the Sacred Scriptures. The Bible is Yahweh's Word, and He proves it by including many prophecies which would (and will) happen in the future. It is also Yahweh's way of warning those on Earth of the great danger which now lies ahead.

The Bible warns that a single generation will see the fulfilment of many extraordinary prophecies, beginning with Israel gathered back into her Land as a nation ... and ending with the final battle of Armageddon (which the Bible warns will be the irreversible result of a coming 'peace plan' which will one day be imposed and enforced upon the nation of Israel). We believe the generation the Bible warns about is alive today. We expect you to challenge this statement. To do so, simply learn what the Bible says, study the news, especially on www.yahwehstruth.co.uk, pray for wisdom, and then decide. Many prophecies and warnings are given so we will return to Yahweh and draw close to Him before it's too late ... for Yahweh will provide hope, comfort, and shelter for all who will sincerely receive it, through the one He sent forth—Yahshua, the promised Messiah—called “Savior” because He willingly and lovingly laid down His life for us as our sacrifice (once and for all) to save us from our sins and from the wages of sin, death. Continue to learn of Him, through daily Bible study. Please don't wait. The message found in the Bible is not trivial ...it is staggering! It is the Word of Life!

Let us make it our goal to share our knowledge and understanding of the Sovereign Yahweh’s plan and purpose for humanity with those who are interested in living their lives according to the Law of Elohim and the testimony of Yahshua, not by the dictates and traditions of men. Our secondary goal is to proclaim the coming Kingdom of Yahweh as a warning and a witness to humanity before the Messiah returns to rule this earth.

There is a greater need to work together. Since time is even shorter, an urgent request goes out to each and everyone to share the load of proclaiming the glad tidings of Yahweh’s Kingdom. “And he said to them, ‘The harvest indeed is plenteous, but the laborers are few: pray you therefore the owner of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.’” (Luke 10:12) Let us join in the effort today to labor for the Kingdom of Yahweh.

Once again we appreciate you and your interest in this ministry. We are small, but with Yahweh, all things are possible.

May Yahweh’s Blessing be upon His People,

Your Brethren In Yahweh’s Truth!
