Greetings Brethren, Almighty Yahweh is still looking for a people to fulfill His purpose in these last days. Are you up for the challenge? Are you willing and obedient when it comes to keeping His Holy word. We have been called according to His purpose not according to our own. This is why we have received the blessing of the Holy Spirit in our lives so we can live for Him who called us. The warmth of this summer is upon us and we seek to go and visit the brethren throughout the US and stir them up for the kingdom of Yahweh. Almighty Yahweh commands us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in Ps. 122:6. This is how we receive our blessings by blessing Israel, brethren. I hope and pray that you love one another from the heart and continue to keep the faith.

 

Yahweh Is Near

In Psalm 145:18 we se that Almighty Yahweh is near to all them that call upon His name. We must call upon His name in truth and He will fulfill the desires of all them that fear Him. It is imperative that we teach and preach Yahweh to the ends of the earth as soon as possible so Yahshua can return. We have been called for such a purpose as this. Our hearts must be ready to receive the blessings from on high so we can share them with all that we come in contact with who ask of the hope that is in us. Psalm 145:19 also states: "He also will hear their cry, and will save them", Almighty Yahweh will not hear the cry of sinners but the repentant sinners He will hear. He also will preserve all them that love Him. Almighty Yahweh is near to all that call upon Him in truth brethren. Do you fear Almighty Yahweh, He is looking for a people who will keep His covenant law and do what He requires of us. Almighty Yahweh our Elohim will draw you near Him as you strive to keep all His commandments. It states in Deut.4:6-8 Observe them carefully, for this will show your wisdom and understanding to the nations, who will hear about all these decrees and say, "Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people." 7 What other nation is so great as to have their elohim near them the way the Yahweh our Elohim is near us whenever we pray to him? 8 And what other nation is so great as to have such righteous decrees and laws as this body of laws I am setting before you today. This passage shows us that Almighty Yahweh is near to His people that have entered into a covenant with Him. Can you understand what a blessing it is to have an Elohim so close to you whenever you call on Him.

Almighty Yahweh is also near to them that do evil to destroy them from off the face of the earth. In Numburs 16 we see the Korah rebellion taking place in the scriptures. Two hundred and fifty princes of the congregation rose up against Moses and Aaron, and these were men of renown. They said to Moses and Aaron "you take too much upon yourselves, since all the congregation are holy, everyone of them, and Yahweh is among them: why then do you lift yourselves up above the assembly of Yahweh?" Moses when he heard it he fell on his face: and he spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, "in the morning Yahweh will show who are his, and him who is holy, and will cause him to come near to him." In verse 25-30 it states: 25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. 26 And he spoke to the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins. 27 So they got away from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood at the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little ones. 28 And Moses said, by this you shall know that Yahweh has sent me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own mind. 29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then Yahweh has not sent me. 30 But if Yahweh make a new thing, and the ground open its mouth, and swallow them up, with all that pertain unto them, and they go down alive into Sheol; then you shall understand that these men have despised Yahweh. Korah, Dathan and Abiram felt they were very near to Yahweh but they like many others thought to highly of themselves because Yahweh is Holy and chooses who He wills to approach unto Him. Yahweh is near to all that are humble before Him like Moses and Aaron.

Is Almighty Yahweh near to you brethren? Do you have a relationship with Him that would cause Him to be close to you and to protect you when you call upon Him. Our sin seperates us from Almighty Yahweh and until we repent can we renew the relationship with Almighty Yahweh. In Isa. 59:1-2 it states: Behold, Yahweh's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 but your iniquities have separated between you and your Elohim, and your sins have hid his face from you, so that he will not hear. Are your prayers being heard or are you being neglected by our Father in heaven because you are still in your sin. We must separate ourselves from our sin and draw closer to Almighty Yahweh with the love He has shown us through the sacrifice of our savior Yahshua the Messiah. Almighty Yahweh is near all those that call upon Him in spirit and truth. Let us forsake all and turn to the mighty one of Israel, the one and only true Elohim. Let us keep all His Torah and draw near to Him as a people who love Him from the heart.

 

KENYA

Shalom brethren,

We had a very interesting feast of Pentecost here. First we were privileged to have a brother who had traveled from very far. He hails somewhere in the border of DR Congo and Uganda. We expected him to come with a handful of other brethren but instead he arrived here alone later to be joined by two relatives who study in Nairobi. It was very interesting and inspiring to hear that he had only learnt the sacred names from the internet and now had traveled to see and hear people who actually worship Yahweh in truth and spirit. He was so moved such that he would occasionally break into tears seeing the reality. We spent two days together studying the scriptures and on the Sabbath day he was immersed in the name of Yahshua the messiah. We also spent the Pentecost together at Limuru. On Monday we escorted him to board a bus back home having fulfilled his purpose here. He promised to either sent others here or we also go to preach and baptize there. We have now realized that the field is ripe with harvest but the workers are few. It's our prayer that Yahweh would revive his people to take the task. About twenty brethren observed the feast at Limuru and thirty at Bomet.

Yahweh bless you.
Mumir

Feast of Pentecost Report 19/5/2013

halom and greetings to everyone in the name of Almighty Yahweh, our father in heaven and in the name of his son, our beloved savior, Yahshua the Messiah. I pray that all the brethren are in good health and that Yahweh continues to bless us as we strive to do his will.

It is with joy that I write this report as Yahweh has blessed us with a very inspiring Feast and it is my hope that this report will uplift the spirits of the brethren. The brethren in Trinidad dwelt together for two day to observe the weekly Sabbath and the Feast of Weeks. This gave us enough time to fellowship and interact and a closer bond was formed among us for which we thank and praise Almighty Yahweh. The services were conducted by Deacons Quincy George and Theo Gabriel. The messages that were preached were as follows:

Deacon Quincy George:
  1. Forward Ever, Backward Never
  2. The Spirit and the Covenant
Deacon Theo Gabriel:
  1. Betrothed to Yahshua
  2. Walking by the Spirit, Becoming Spiritual Grains

These messages gave us many things to consider and ponder as we do our best to serve Yahweh Elohim. Our small congregation of 17 were joined by 13 visitors for services. We pray that Yahweh will add his blessings to the work we are trying to accomplish in Trinidad. May Yahweh bless all the brethren around the world.

Shalom, Deacon Quincy George

Violent Ramadan ahead: Egypt's army chief says no to dialogue with Brotherhood.
Assad nixes ceasefire
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 9, 2013, 10:14 AM (IDT)

Muslim Brotherhood casualties in Cairo gunfire

The holy Muslim month of Ramadan beginning in the Middle East Tuesday, July 9, heralds more, rather than less, bloodshed. After at least 51 deaths in a Cairo shootout Monday, Egypt's military chief Gen. Abdel Fattah El-Sisi rebuffed US diplomatic efforts to bring the various political forces in the country around the table for dialogue. The high military council is divided on this: One faction urges a relentless crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood and its deposed president; a second, led by Gen. El-Sisi, says they mustn't be cowed by the backlash to Monday's incident, but should keep the political process for a new and stable government on track In line with this perception, Provisional President Justice Adli Mansour issued a decree Tuesday for elections to a new parliament in February 2014, followed immediately by voting for a new president. He did not fix a precise date. No one expects this decree to tranquilize the turmoil in the country or deter the Brothers from an uprising (intifada) declared against the powers that unseated them after Egyptian soldiers shot dead at least 51 of their supporters. They were accused by the army of trying to storm the Republican Guards Club in Cairo where deposed president Mohamed Morsi is held. The Brothers claimed they were just holding a peaceful sit-in.

The generals have geared up to meet this threat, which appears to have been kicked off Monday with attacks on strategic targets across Egypt - carried out, according to DEBKAfile's military sources, by the Brotherhood's armed underground, Al-Gihas al-Sirri. In parallel, the military is also deploying for a major offensive to curb the armed Salafi Bedouin rampant in Sinai and now harnessed to the Brotherhoods uprising. The generals believe this center of revolt must be nipped in the bud without delay for the sake of confining the MB uprising to mainland Egypt. To this end, heavy military reinforcements were seen pouring into Sinai in the early hours of Tuesday. The urgency of cutting down the Brotherhood's capabilities for making trouble was attested to by the risk the Egyptian army took by withdrawing substantial military strength from the Suez Canal towns of Port Said, Ismailia and Suez and redeploying them in Sinai. They acted on the assumption that, in the short term, the Brothers would concentrate their defiance on street protests and clashes with the army to Cairo. Our military sources report that Maj. Gen. Ahmad Wasfi, head of the Second Army, arrived Monday in the northern Sinai town of El Arish to set up a command center for the forthcoming campaign against the Islamist opposition and its allies, the Salafist networks linked to al Qaeda and the radical Palestinian Hamas. The outbreaks in Egypt this week overshadowed the disastrous situation in Syria.

DEBKAfile's military sources report that alongside thrusts on other fronts, such as Homs, the Syrian army and Hizballah are in the final stages of preparations for their big push to liquidate rebel strongholds in Aleppo and recapture Syria's second city.

Syrian President Bashar Assad decided to go ahead with this offensive despite the onset of Ramadan, during which Muslims fast from sunup to sundown for a month. Iran and Moscow are speeding extra military and arms supplies to aid this effort by airlift. Refusing to brook any further delays in the battle for Aleppo, Assad turned down a proposal by UN Secretary Ban Ki-moon's and the new Syrian opposition president Ahmad Jabra to declare a bilateral ceasefire for the month of Ramadan.

 

NEWS, NOTES, & NOTABLES

Looking Ahead to the Next New Moon:The new moon for the 5th scriptural month should be visible the evening of Tuesday, July 09, 2013. 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.
