A Celebration Of Creation – A Look At Sabbath, Part 2
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, along with everything in them. On the seventh day God was finished with his work which he had made, so he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. God blessed the seventh day and separated it as holy; because on that day God rested from all his work which he had created, so that it itself could produce. ~Genesis 2:1-3 (CJB)
In the first part of this message I covered a lot of points of opposition toward keeping a weekly Sabbath in accordance with the Fourth Commandment from a chapter titled Is the Weekly Sabbath Established in the Genesis Creation Narrative? from the book Lying For God. The authors of this book, as mentioned previously, appear to consist primarily of former members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church and the Worldwide Church of God. The overall tone of the book seems that they are more concerned with discrediting the doctrines of the religious cult organizations they previously belonged to than looking at actual Jewish-Christian history on the subject.
To refresh some of what I touched on in Part 1, there is a peculiar word in this opening text, one that seems a bit out of place or unusual in regard to the characteristic of God. That word is “rested”. Why would the Scripture declare that God “rested” when Psalm 121:4 tells us: “Behold, the Keeper of Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps”?
On the surface this gives the impression that God was tired after He had finished creating the Earth and all life contained within it. But I don’t believe that is really the case at all. The Hebrew word that has been translated as “rested” in many English translations of the Bible is shabath (שָׁבַת) and is where the word Shabbat or Sabbath comes from. This point is contested in Lying For God, but I feel I have already properly addressed this and clearly shown that historical Jewish teaching throughout the centuries connects the Sabbath commandment in Exodus 20 with the Creation Sabbath of Genesis 2 and that the Jewish people have long regarded the Sabbath as a celebration of God’s Creation. Because, however, it is often defined in terms of rest, I feel there is a lot of misunderstanding to what the Sabbath Day really is.
Who Made God?
Once at a conference, I had a boy about ten years of age come up and ask me, “Sir, if God created us, who created God?” How do you answer that question for a young child?
Well, I said to him, “If someone made God, then you would have to have a bigger God.”
The boy replied, “Yes, sir.”
I said, “But now you have a problem—who made the bigger God? You would then need a bigger, bigger God who made the bigger God who made God.” I then went on, “Who made the bigger, bigger God? Now you would need a bigger, bigger, bigger God who made the bigger, bigger God who made the bigger God who made God.” The young boy understood.
The Creation of Man
The first Hebrew word in the Bible is Be-reisheet. This word signifies the very act of creation—God brought “being” into existence from “non-being,” something from nothing. In the beginning (Be-reisheet), the Lord God made all things perfect. Each living organism on earth was divinely planned and woven into the most remarkable fabric of creation, a living tapestry of God’s artwork. Every detail, carefully and methodically executed by the wisdom of God, for a creation without wisdom would be chaos.
Euthanasia and the Bible
In a world in which death is increasingly allowed to be voluntarily embraced, how horrid a prospect it is that those so vulnerable may find they are pressured to choose death. Their so-called autonomy, their “right to die,” may become their duty to die! Suicide, even when assisted by a physician’s lethal prescription, and euthanasia — which is just a nice word for murder with a presumably merciful motive — are not acceptable options unless we are nothing more than animals!
In 1935 the Euthanasia Society of England was formed to promote the notion of a painless death for patients with incurable diseases. A few years later the Euthanasia Society of America was formed with essentially the same goals.

Yeshua has given us the Melchi Zedek
High Priestly Prayer of John 17,
which is so much Greater!
by Richard Aaron Honorof
Feed My Sheep Jerusalem
Just hours before Yeshua’s death He gave us His last great Prayer of John 17 to help us come into God’s divine Unity with God and also with each other so that the world would know that Father God sent His only begotten Son to earth to be the Savior of the world.
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have Peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world!”
John 17:1-26 “1 Yeshua spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You! 2 As You have given Him Authority over all flesh, that He should give Eternal Life to as many as You have given Him. 3 And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent. 4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the Glory which I had with You before the world was. 6 I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours; You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your Word. 7 Now they have known that all things which You have given Me are from You. 8 For I have given to them the Words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me. 9 I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. 10 And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them. 11 Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be One as We are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My Joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Your Word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your Truth. Your Word is Truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the Truth. 20 I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be One, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be One in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the Glory which You gave Me I have given them that they may be One just as We are One! 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made Perfect in One, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. 24 Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My Glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O Righteous Father, the world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them!””
The Aaronic priestly blessing …
Numbers 6:24-27 “24 The LORD bless you and keep you; 25 The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you. 26 The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace. 27 So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
What did our Lord Yeshua see when He prayed this High Priestly Prayer over His disciples just before He went to the Cross for us? What does He now see ahead for all of us, for the Jerusalem and Israeli Messianic Body of believers of today?
This is truly the time to be praying Yeshua’s High Priestly Melchi Zedek Prayer of John 17 over Yeshua’s whole Messianic and Church Body!
Very soon now, just following the coming Gog Magog War, the newly formed Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priesthood will begin building their temple on Mount Zion hill in Jerusalem. And then they will also launch very serious persecutions against the Israeli Messianic Body here in the land. This indeed is the time to obey our Lord Yeshua by using this Prayer which He gave us from John 17, for Him to help us to come into this divine Unity.
For the Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priesthood surely knows all about most of Messianic Congregations and Churches in Jerusalem and around Israel, like your location, your size, and most likely your leadership. And they have been patiently waiting until they come into real political power to show us whom they think is really in charge in Israel.
For they definitely do not love their Messianic Jewish brothers and sisters. They have brain-washed themselves into believing that we have become traitors to the faith of our Israeli Jewish forefather’s by turning to Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel. Even though over 200 Messianic Scriptures prophesies in the Tanakh (Old Testament) proved that Yeshua is the true Messiah and Savior of Israel.
And they also really do not want to hear about the fact that God had announced in Jeremiah 31:31-34, that He would make a New Covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. And just why did God do that? Because the Aaronic priests had broken God’s Covenant with God, which God had made through Moses for all of Israel at Mount Sinai.
When the Israeli Orthodox religious Aaronic priesthood begins attacking the Messianic Body with their newly gained legal political authority and power after the Gog Magog War, and they will, then they will also immediately try to force every Messianic congregation to close down, to leave their premises, and never return. What will that mean for God’s Messianic Body in the land?
It means that now is the time for you to have all of your small groups and home groups up and fully operating, with everyone knowing their job assignments during the hard times ahead, and not just for survival and fellowship, but also being prepared for outreach in evangelism to the unsaved. Is your Congregation really prepared for what is coming?
With these Israeli Orthodox religious persecutions coming against the Messianic and Church Body in the land, everything will change overnight from your current Congregational structured meetings to your believers having to gather in secret locations.
This will also be the time when God will begin pouring out His Spirit with signs and wonders and amazing miracles in the specific location that God had prophesied in His Word here in Jerusalem, in the ben Hinnom Valley, prophesied in the last verse in the Jeremiah New Covenant chapter, in Jeremiah 31:40. And there many believers will meet together crying out to God in prayer for help during these Orthodox religious persecutions. Perhaps the ben Hinnom Valley is also the place where the Messianic Body will truly unite together and become the John 17 Body which Yeshua had prayed about and envisioned for us in His John 17 Prayer.
On June 16, 1999, while I was in north Jerusalem, high in worship at a worship center, God suddenly gave me two quick visions of this coming Great Revival, showing me the outpouring of His Holy Spirit falling on many people in the ben Hinnom Valley and in the hills surrounding this Valley, at the location just below Mount Zion hotel. The book which I have written over the last 20 years on this coming great Revival is called,
The Coming Great World Revival, The Hinnom Valley Story!
It can be downloaded free from my website:
I believe that the ben Hinnom Valley written about in Jeremiah 31:40 is also the Valley of dry bones which was prophesied by God in Ezekiel 37, where the whole house of Israel will become united together, coming alive in Yeshua, the God of Israel. Truly this location (where Abram had met Melchi Zedek in Genesis 14:18-20) is the place of this coming Great Revival!
Ezekiel 37:3-6, 9-11, 14 “3 And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord GOD, You know.” 4 Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! 5 Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD.” 9 Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. 11 Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off! 14 I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,” says the LORD.”
Matthew 22:36-40 “36 Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Yeshua said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
Mark 12:29-31 “29 Yeshua answered him, 29 “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear O Israel, the LORD our God, the LORD is One. 30 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.””
John 13:34-35 “34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 15:12-25 “12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 17 These things I command you, that you love one another. 18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My Word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’” (Psalm 69:4)
1 John 3:9-11 “9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. 10 In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest. Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. 11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another …”
1 John 4:12-21 “12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Yeshua is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. 19 We love Him because He first loved us. 20 If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.”
Now is the time for Yeshua’s Messianic believers to be regularly praying this whole John 17 Prayer, which our Messiah and Savior and Lord Yeshua gave us just before He died for us. What will God do when Yeshua’s Melchi Zedek (My King of Righteousness) High Priestly Prayer and Blessing of John 17 is prayed?
Why are the Messianic Congregations
still praying the Aaronic Benediction

John 17:3 “And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent.”
Yeshua said in John 12:32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all peoples to Myself!”
A Salvation Prayer
Salvation and Eternal Life are free gifts from God! But you must ask God for them just by accepting God’s Son Yeshua as your Lord and Savior. He paid the ultimate price, by dying in your place on the Cross for all of your sins, and by taking all of your sins upon Himself.
Whether you are one of the most religious Orthodox Jewish persons or simply a Jew who has never believed in the God of Israel, if you do not personally know Yeshua, the King and High Priest of Heaven, your Creator, as your own personal Savior then say the following prayer, meaning it with all of your heart. And you will be able to know Him and you will be saved, and also when you die, you can be assured that you will be going to Heaven. And you will experience the Love of God from Yeshua, the God of Love!
Dear Lord Yeshua, I ask You to be my Lord and Savior, my Messiah! I confess that I am a sinner, and that I have broken Your commandments and Your laws. That I need you as my Savior. I repent for all of my sins. Please forgive me of all my sins, and come and live in my heart. Fill me with Your love, and Your forgiveness, and with Your wonderful Holy Spirit! Amen.
I bless all those who curse me!
Please send this special teaching out to many of your family and friends to read.
I have written many other books and articles over the years which are all free to download from my website.
My most important book is called, ‘Yeshua, my King of Righteousness, Heaven’s King and Great High Priest, which proves that Yeshua was born from two families of the virgin, king David’s family through Miriam’s father, and the family of Zadokite high priests of Aaron through Miriam’s mother.
Also, the full Truth about Yeshua’s Eternal Blood sacrifice is not being taught today. Father God totally honored Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice because Yeshua as the Son of Man was from the family of king David through Miriam’s father and also from the (then unknown) family of Miriam’s mother.
Yeshua was born the fulfillment of the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron through Miriam’s mother!
However, Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest simply because He had no biological earthly father; but Yeshua is always from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam.

The Modern Descendants of Zara-Judah
For at least 1,500 years before the coming of the Saxons into Britain the two emblems of the Zara-Judah branch of the Israelitish Tribe of Judah were the chief emblems of the British Isles — the RED HAND in Ireland and the RAMPANT RED LION in Britain. The fact that the use of the Rampant Red Lion as a clan and family emblem is found in Scotland indicates that many of the Scottish people are descended from Zara-Judah.
When Jacob (Israel) gave his dying blessing to his twelve sons, he associated each of them with some animal, object or personal characteristic which afterwards became the emblem of the tribe descended from him. Among these the LION, the emblem of Jacob’s fourth son Judah, is of special importance. This lion, in a couchant (lying down) position, became the emblem of the tribe of Judah; then, in a passant position, it became the emblem of the Camp or Brigade of Judah. Later, with the addition of a crown, it became the emblem of the Royal House and the throne of Judah. Still later, in a rampant (standing on the hind legs with both forelegs elevated) posture and with a crown, it became the symbol of the two-tribed House and Kingdom of Judah.
Yet this lion, usually portrayed as tawny or golden in color, is not the only emblem of the descendants of Judah — or even the only lion!
Zarah and Pharez
In the last four verses of Genesis 38, we find recorded the birth of twin sons to Jacob’s fourth son Judah. Notice what these verses say:
Now it came to pass, at the time for giving birth, that behold, twins were in her womb. And so it was, when she was giving birth, that the one put out his hand; and the midwife took a scarlet thread and bound it on his hand, saying, “This one came out first.” Then it happened, as he drew back his hand, that his brother came out unexpectedly; and she said, “How did you break through? This breach be upon you!” Therefore his name was called Perez. Afterward his brother came out who had the scarlet thread on his hand. And his name was called Zerah [Zarah].
This is one of the most important events recorded in Bible history. The births of a great many other people are recorded in the Bible, but in this one case ONLY are the details given — why? Why is this particular birth singled out for such special attention?
This birth was a matter of great and special significance because Judah’s other sons could not inherit the prophetic promise that from his descendants would come the future Royal Family of the nation of Israel. This was because they were the children of a forbidden union — their mother was a Canaanite! Therefore, with the older of these two boys destined to be the ancestor of the future Royal Family of Israel, the question of which of them was born first (and therefore the heir) was a matter of very great importance. It was also, as the Bible shows, the basis or beginning of serious family trouble.
In the record of the birth, we find that the hand of Zarah (Zara) appeared first, and that the midwife tied a scarlet thread or cord around his wrist, saying: “This came out first.” We then read that the hand was withdrawn, and that the birth of Pharez ensued. Here, indeed, was the seed of family discord. Which boy was the firstborn and, therefore, the heir: Zara with the scarlet cord around his wrist and the pronouncement “This came out first” or Pharez (Perez) whose birth was completed first?
Eventually Pharez was declared the rightful heir, and from him descended the official branch of the Tribe of Judah and the Davidic Royal House.
Now how did Zara and his descendants react to what they, undoubtedly, considered a wrong decision that robbed them of their rightful inheritance?
That they did not accept this ruling and that many of them left the main body of Israel during the time of the bondage in Egypt, becomes very clear when we examine the tribal genealogies as recorded in the Old Testament. These record the main lines of descent from Pharez-Judah for a very long period of time — but the record of the descendants of Zara-Judah apparently ends with the third generation.
Since these genealogies — and especially those of the chief families in each tribe — were kept with great care, any omission would indicate that those omitted were NO LONGER in the land when the record was made. As the genealogy of Zara-Judah apparently ceases with the third generation, it naturally follows that most (if not all) of Zara’s descendants must have left the main body during the time of Israel’s captivity in Egypt — and therefore BEFORE the Exodus. With this mind WHERE, then, did they go?
Since they were descendants of Judah their emblem was a lion. It is very unlikely that they would give up this emblem of their identity and descent — even though bitterly resentful towards the rest of the Tribe of Judah. They therefore kept the lion as their emblem, but added their own variations to it to show that they were entirely separate and distinct from the Tribe of Judah in Israel. In their bitterness they would make the difference as great as possible without actually doing away with the symbol. So, instead of a tawny couchant lion, they depicted theirs as both rampant and red. As a result, the Rampant Red Lion became an emblem of the Zara branch of the Tribe of Judah.
A Scriptural introduction to angels
When we looked at the spiritual impact of the tower of Babel, we saw that there exists other lesser elohim in the spiritual realm that have influence over the nations mentioned in Genesis 10. Now we need to look a bit more into the other beings that exist in this spiritual realm.
When we look at all the different spiritual beings, we typically study three different areas of doctrine. It includes:
1. Angeology – Study of the angels of YHVH
2. Demonology – Study of the demons, evil spirits or fallen angels
3. Satanology – Study of ha satan – the accuser
In this study, we will put our attention on the firsts of these three topics. We will have a look at what the Scripture tells us about angels. In future studies, we will look at the other two areas of doctrine in more detail.
In order to understand exactly what an “angel” is, we need to turn to Scripture and see where they come from, what do they look like and also what they do. Let us start with the origin.
Will YHVH allow us to be deceived?
Will our heavenly Father allow us to be deceived?
Every one of us is subject to deception. Y’shua said even the very elect could be deceived (Matt 24:24). This was also Y’shua’s very first warning when He was asked about the end of the age. He said: “see to it that no one deceives you” (Matt 24:3-5). We have written a previous post about deception and will continue to do, because of the importance and relevance of this topic. In this study, we want to look at how certain practices can make it possible for us to be deceived. These practices can be summarized as mixed worship. This will include any practices and traditions contrary to the Word.
There are many accepted practices, among believers that are totally against YHVH’s Torah. These practices are quite varied. We are going to expound two practices that will lead to further deception. Both have their roots in idolatry. Firstly the merging of pagan or heathen worship practices or traditions with our worship of YHVH…
Mixing of threads, cattle and seed
Truth applied literally comes easier than spiritual application. It may also satisfy (being broken as we are) our performance-based relationship with YHVH. We may not even be consciously aware of it, but we may use obedience to YHVH’s instructions as a means to gain acceptance, love or blessings from Him. It is easier to see His instructions as rules we have to keep or suffer punishment than to see it as instructions by a loving Father for our benefit. When we see His instructions only as rules, we lose much of the significance of how YHVH intended it and we maintain a performace-based relationship with Him.
When we endeavour to seek also a spiritual understanding, we seek a relationship, because we have to rely on YHVH to show us what He really meant. Logic is under our control, but relationship asks of us to pray and wait and seek.
YHVH seeks worshippers. He doesn’t only seek worship, for worship can be given by pure compliance or rote routine. The word “worshipper” denotes a way of life…
Paths of Old – Ancient Paths
Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21
“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves….” (Jeremiah 6:16)
“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)
Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).
“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

Potential New Moon Sighting
This month (May), we have one Conjunction (Dark Moon). It falls on May 19th.
At sunset on Sunday, May 21, 2023 the Percent of Full illumination is calculated to be at 3% (visible). So, barring any cloud cover, rain, etc., the New Moon should be sighted.
The last New Moon was sighted in Israel was on April 21, 2023. Counting forward 29 days, we come to May 20, 2023. On May 20th we have the first cresent New Moon which has a percent of fullness of 0%. So, this New Moon will not be visible. The first visible cresent New Moon will be on May 21, 2023. A Hebrew month cannot be no less than 29 days and no more than 30 days long.

PART 16: LIES OF MEN AND GODS—Check the Children
WHY IS SKYWATCH TV RELEASING THE MULTI-EPISODE DOCUSERIES “RESCUE US” LATER THIS FALL?
For many who study America’s current direction, speculation about crossing a point of no return doesn’t seem out of the question. After all, many of the ways culture presses against the outer limits of propriety are certainly bolder than in previous generations. But, what have we embraced as a society that signals we have, indeed, gone too far?
PART 17: LIES OF MEN AND GODS—THE NORMALIZATION OF PEDOPHILIA
Sexuality has become one of the most convoluted and debated aspects of our culture, and as the topic becomes more heated, all sides have become increasingly volatile. As diversity allows for increasing polarity where sexuality is concerned, many show concern for fostering both their own rights and those of subsequent generations. As such, children slowly become entangled in the web that is self-expression, both by those who defend and exploit them.
PART 18: LIES OF MEN AND GODS—Who Is Behind These Pedophilia Agendas
One must wonder, if all involved in both sides of this issue are truly seeking the betterment of society, why things progress as they do in spite of the opposition. One church in California was vandalized after its pastor openly protested the story hour led by drag queens. The church building was marred with pentagrams scrawled in spray paint alongside “vulgar [and satanic] phrases.” These authors believe that there is a link between movements such as these and those that sexually exploit and traffic children behind the scenes.
Christians Targeted With ‘Holy Spirit Ouija Board’
Christianity has been the subject of mockery and derision since Jesus walked the earth and shared with the world that He was the hope for salvation. In today’s world, that mockery has taken the form of occult practices thinly veiled in Christian cover to deceive and cause division in its wake. A group that created the YouTube page “Holy Spirit Games” also created a “Christian” Ouija board claiming that people will be able to communicate with Christ directly. The group’s portrayal is that of a comedy troupe. The three sketches they have posted to the YouTube page are beyond parody and saturated with their disdain…
Isaac Newton’s Eerie 1704 Prophecy Has People Terrified Of Imminent Apocalypse

The United Nations is seeking vast new powers and stronger “global governance” tools to deal with international emergencies such as pandemics and economic crises, a new U.N. policy brief has revealed, and the Biden administration supports the proposal. International lawyer and former U.N. internal investigator-turned-whistleblower Peter Gallo, noted the organization’s long history of corruption, politicization, and scandal, including cases in which humanitarian aid was diverted or even weaponized for political purposes.

I have been warning for more than two years that the global beast system will be fully in place when we see the globalists succeed at implementing two key components: A global digital ID for all people and a new form of global digital money that will be designed to replace cash. On April 10, the globalists dropped a bombshell that very few news outlets have even noticed and I will take the rest of this article to lay it out for you. The Digital Currency Monetary Authority (DCMA) announced on April 10 it will be launching a…

A metallic orb that was captured by a U.S. spy plane in Mosul, Iraq, in 2016 is still being studied, according to Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office.

The Bible, the coronation and Washington's kiss

NYC Catholic Church Facing Backlash for ‘God Is Trans’ Exhibit
According to a report published Sunday by The New York Post, the Church of St. Paul the Apostle — located on Manhattan’s West Side — is known to be “very liberal.” Despite that, for some church members, the “God is Trans” display appears to be a bridge too far — or at least one that is going to require an explanation.
America's New "Woke" Religion
As Christianity has declined in the United States, other faiths have moved quickly to fill the void. In previous articles, I have written about the explosive growth that witchcraft and Satanism have both experienced in recent years. But Christianity’s main rival in the U.S. is neither one of them.

California must pay churches $1.4 million for trying to make them...
Since 2014, several churches have been resisting California administrative actions forcing all employers to cover elective abortions as “basic health care” in health insurance plans, regardless of religious or moral objections. The Trump administration threatened to withhold federal funding to California for infringing on religious freedom, but California under then-state Attorney General Xavier Becerra (now U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services) persisted, and the legal battle continued for years.

Where Is God?
As Christians, we believe in a God who is all-knowing, all-powerful, and ever-present. We know that God is present in our lives and in the world around us, but sometimes, it can feel like God is far away, and we may wonder: “Where is God?” Let’s explore what the Bible says about where God is and what we can do when we feel distant from him.

Five Heartfelt Declarations for Your Parents Before Time Runs Out
The Apostle Paul highlights ingratitude as a characteristic of the end times. Our world indeed seems less appreciative today. When did we last sincerely thank someone? The first people deserving of our gratitude are our parents. As life’s clock ticks away unpredictably, don’t delay in telling your parents ‘thank you.’
THE PLAN OF THE BEAST EXPOSED!
The plan of the beast is exposed in the Hebrew Revelation! That is to say, this was an opinion considered among the Benai Emunah Gospel Translation Team. As we know, Revelation 17:13 defines an end of day plan to destroy Yehovah’s people. What is the great plan of Revelation 17:13? “The mysteries are hidden in the Hebrew grammar”, I always say. This proved true while translating Cambridge Oo.1.16.2 and the Gaster 1616 Hebrew manuscript of Revelation 17:13.
There’s Nothing New About Worshiping Abortion, Linking Feminism To Satan
A new “church” in California just opened: The Church of Potential Life. It was established in response to the Supreme Court Dobb’s decision, MSN Insider reports. It isn’t a church to pray for the unborn, as the title could suggest, but to worship abortion and female autonomy. The founder, Jackie DesForges, said her “anger and sense of grief over the loss of abortion rights” led her to “create the provocative symbol of hope.”
We Are Living In Apocalyptic, Revelatory Times
We are living in apocalyptic, revelatory times. In a sense, all stages of history give glimpses into the apocalyptic, but contemporary phenomena are especially revealing. Apocalypsis, the Greek word from which we get “revelation,” refers to the lifting of a veil, or curtain.
