Greetings Brethren, The light of Yahweh has dawned upon us that believe in Yahshua the Messiah. We hope that you are truly blessed because you believe and your lives show that you love the messiah by keeping His commandments. John 14:15 states: "If you love me, you will keep my commandments." I hope that this letter finds you in the best of health in body and spirit. Yahshua said in John 15:10, "If you keep my commandments, you shall remain in my love, even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and remain in his love." Our savior gave us a very good example to follow so let's remain in His love by loving one another and sharing this love with the world.

 

Who Shall Stand Up?

Almighty Yahweh is looking for a people who will stand up for that which is right. A people who will keep His commandments regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in. When Daniel found himself in the Babylonian captivity he still praised Almighty Yahweh for the blessings that he had received. He also recognized that it was Judah and Israel that had sinned against Yahweh and that they deserved the punishment that they were receiving. Daniel was not bitter against Yahweh for being sent into captivity he stood up for that which was right and accepted his lot. In Dan. 9:3-19

3 So I gave my attention to Yahweh Elohim to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. 4 I prayed to Yahweh my Elohim and confessed and said, "Alas, O Yahweh, the great and awesome El, who keeps His covenant and loving kindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, 5 we have sinned, committed iniquity, acted wickedly and rebelled, even turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances. 6 Moreover, we have not listened to Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings, our princes, our fathers and all the people of the land. 7"Righteousness belongs to You, O Yahweh, but to us open shame, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those who are nearby and those who are far away in all the countries to which You have driven them, because of their unfaithful deeds which they have committed against You. 8 Open shame belongs to us, O Yahweh, to our kings, our princes and our fathers, because we have sinned against You. 9 To Yahweh our Elohim belong compassion and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against Him; 10 nor have we obeyed the voice of Yahweh our Elohim, to walk in His teachings which He set before us through His servants the prophets. 11 Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of Elohim, for we have sinned against Him. 12 Thus He has confirmed His words which He had spoken against us and against our rulers who ruled us, to bring on us great calamity; for under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what was done to Jerusalem. 13 As it is written in the law of Moses, all this calamity has come on us; yet we have not sought the favor of Yahweh our Elohim by turning from our iniquity and giving attention to Your truth. 14 Therefore Yahweh has kept the calamity in store and brought it on us; for Yahweh our Elohim is righteous with respect to all His deeds which He has done, but we have not obeyed His voice. 15 "And now, O Yahweh our Elohim, who have brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand and have made a name for Yourself, as it is this day—we have sinned, we have been wicked. 16 O Yahweh, in accordance with all Your righteous acts, let now Your anger and Your wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; for because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become a reproach to all those around us. 17 So now, our Elohim, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications, and for Your sake, O Yahweh, let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary. 18 O my Elohim, incline Your ear and hear! Open Your eyes and see our desolations and the city which is called by Your name; for we are not presenting our supplications before You on account of any merits of our own, but on account of Your great compassion. 19 O Yahweh, hear! O Yahweh, forgive! O Yahweh, listen and take action! For Your own sake, O my Elohim, do not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name." Daniel stood up by accepting the will of Almighty Yahweh and was blessed for it. Many rebelled and went down to Egypt and were destroyed for their disobedience to Almighty Yahweh's judgment. Will you stand up in these last days as judgment falls on the wicked of this world who refuse to keep the commandments of our father in heaven. We must cry aloud and spare not and lift our voices like a trumpet as it says in Isaiah 58:1. If we don't stand up for Almighty Yahweh and His righteousness we will find ourselves without the mark of Yahweh.

The mark of Yahweh is given to those who sign and cry over the abominations that are being done in the earth. Abortions, Idolatry, fornication, sorceries, murders and all liars will not be found in the book of life. In contrast the mark of the beast will be given to those who accept this world and are all right with what is going on in the world. Don't allow Satan to wear you down in accepting this world of sin and regret stand up for Yahweh and show Him you love Him by rejecting the evil one and his ways. We can do this by keeping Almighty Yahweh's commandments and loving our neighbor as our selves. Yahshua the Messiah defeated the evil one not accepting any of his lies but He stood up for His Father in heaven by being obedient even to death. Can we stand up for that which is right each and every day having the evil one and his lies exposed making it easy to overcome the world.

Eyes on Israel

Chemical threat is back. Hizballah, Israel close to clash
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 8, 2012, 12:16 PM (GMT+02:00)

The first US-Turkish backed steps for creating safe havens in Syria and possible strategic bombardment of the Syrian army have brought the Middle East close to two dangerous junctures: The Syrian army's use of chemical weapons, and an outbreak of hostilities between Hizballah and Israel, DEBKAfile's military sources report. The creeping Western involvement in the Syrian conflict was not previously acknowledged and the Lebanese Shiite Hizballah rarely figured publicly as a fighting prop of the Assad regime.

hat is until the dam burst Friday and Saturday, Sept 7-8. The United States then admitted that US officials and intelligence agents were training and aiding Syrian rebels from positions on the Turkish border – and therefore directly intervening in their operations.

This admission came on the heels of the DEBKAfile disclosure of Sept. 6 that Turkish officers backed by US agents had taken command of two Syrian rebel brigades. Britain and France came next to report they were sending aid directly to the Syrian opposition, a more cautious admission than the American reference to officials and agents, but clearly on the same track, which adds up to their direct intervention in Syria for the creation of safe havens.

French and British foreign ministers attending a European Union meeting in Cyprus called Friday night for sanctions against Hizballah, meaning that mounting Western pressure on Assad has been extended to his Lebanese ally. But the big event thus portended is still to come.

It will now be up to the Syrian rebels, backed and steered by a US-led Arab-Western- European-Turkish coalition, to fight for the safe haven, purge it of forces and militias loyal to Assad and expand it for control of large tracts of territory in eastern and western Syria. Despite fairly large-scale defections, the bulk of the Syrian army still maintains its allegiance to the Syrian ruler and doesn't appear ready to turn against him. The rebels therefore face a long, arduous and hazardous haul before they can secure a substantial safe haven – unless it can be shortened by a step now under consideration in Washington, London, Paris, Ankara and at least two Arab capitals: aerial bombardment of the Syrian army's toughest backbone, the 9th Division commanded by the Syrian ruler's brother, Gen. Maher Assad.

The same treatment could be meted out to smash Hizballah bases and strategic centers. The thinking in some circles in Washington is that Russia's disengagement from its support of the Assad regime and cutoff of essential weapons, have opened the way to severing the military bonds tying Assad, Hizballah and Tehran together. As long as those bonds are viable, it will be that much harder to bring Assad to heel and subjugate his armed forces. The revelation by British military sources Friday, Sept. 7 that 150 elite officers and troops of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards had flown into Syria was intended as a warning to Tehran that the time had come to pull its hand out of the Syrian fire.

This rush of events may bring closer to reality the action feared most by Western powers, Israel, Turkey and Jordan that, as his enemies close in, Assad will bring out his chemical and biological weapons.

Consciousness of this approaching threat led Washington sources to disclose Friday that Syria's chemical arsenal was bigger and more widely scattered than suspected hitherto. It was also an admission that Washington was no longer fully apprised of the scale of this arsenal or its locations.

Last week, Israeli media were too preoccupied with the likelihood of war with Iran to notice that Israel and Hizballah had moved up to the brink of a major clash. The war alert declared by Israel's armed forces in mid-week had only partly eased by Saturday..

 

NEWS, NOTES, & NOTABLES

Looking Ahead to the Next New Moon: The new moon for the 7th scriptural month should be visible the evening of Monday, September 17, 2012. So watch.

In Genesis 1:14-18 we see the significance of the heavenly bodies. "Then Elohim said, 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;' and it was so. Then Elohim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. Elohim set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And Elohim saw that it was good." (NKJV)

Be sure to look for this new moon and report your findings to us by calling 717-383-6975.

We are commanded to pray for the sick among us in James 5:13-15 13“Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise. 14Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of Yahweh: 15 and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and Yahweh shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. Let us pray for these people who have a petition before Almighty Yahweh.
