Greetings Brethren, We pray Almighty Yahweh is blessing you and your family during this very pagan time of year. As we have observed the reading of the Maccabees during the most recent festival of lights we see how Almighty Yahweh delivered His people in the past from this paganism. We must cling to our savior Yahshua the messiah and the truth of the word. We must worship Almighty Yahweh only and Him shall you serve. In Exodus 22:20 states: "He that sacrifices to any Elohim, except to Yahweh only shall be utterly destroyed." We are to worship only the true Elohim and we know that all the Elohim of the nations are but idols. Let us continue to give all honor and glory to the mighty one of Israel. We are in the 6th year of the Sabbatical cycle so we need to be concerned for the widows and orphans, sojourners and Levites with our 3rd tithes. In the US the government gives money to three of the four categories listed above but we must remember them all this year.

Remember the Levites

We are commanded in Deut. 14:28-29 (NIV) 28At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year's produce and store it in your towns, 29so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that Yahweh your Elohim may bless you in all the work of your hands. The Levites today are your ministers who serve among you doing the work of Yahweh and most of them receive very little for their service. So brethren this is the year to bless them and watch the ministry flourish. I just sent a letter from one of the elders in Malawi to the brethren to show the dedication and the need for our support of the new leaders there. We will soon be travelling there to teach and preach Yahshua and baptize those who are worthy. We trust Almighty Yahweh to lead us through His spirit so we want to fulfill all that He commands us. We also know that He will provide the blessings we need to fulfill all His word. If we live by His word by taking care of the Levites we will be blessed and receive a great harvest during the 6thyear, so the seventh year we will not lack anything we need. This is based on the reciprocal blessing which was demonstrated during the drought in Israel that was called by EliYah. In 1st Kings 17:8-16 8 and the word of Yahweh came unto him, saying, 9arise, get you to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you. 10So he arose and went to Zarephath; and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks: and he called to her, and said, get me, I pray you, a little water in a vessel that I may drink. 11And as she was going to get it, he called to her, and said, bring me, I pray you, a morsel of bread in your hand. 12And she said, As Yahweh your Elohim lives, I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in the jar, and a little oil in the cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. 13And EliYah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as you have said; but make me of it a little cake first, and bring it to me, and afterward make for you and for your son. 14For thus says Yahweh, the Elohim of Israel, The jar of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that Yahweh sends rain upon the earth. 15And she went and did according to the saying of EliYah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. 16The jar of meal was not used up, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of Yahweh, which he spoke by EliYah. Why did Almighty Yahweh choose a widow to sustain EliYah? I believe that it was a 3rd or 6th year of the sabbatical cycle and He was showing how great He is that even during a time of drought He can sustain us. There is nothing too hard for Almighty Yahweh brethren. We must trust in Him at all times the good and the bad because He is the author of our lives. The place Yahweh sent EliYah to was Zerepath which is #6886 in the Strong's and it means refinement. It is from #6884 which means to cast, refine or purge away, our heavenly father is showing us we need to purge away the dross in our lives and just concentrate on Him during this 3rd tithe year. By focusing on those who qualify to receive the 3rd tithe we bless Almighty Yahweh.

In Malachi 3:1-4 we see a passage that shows EliYah the messenger of the covenant is being sent to Yahweh's people to prepare the way before Yahshua. "Behold, I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and Yahweh, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, behold, he comes, says Yahweh of hosts. 2But who can endure the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire, and like fuller's soap: 3and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer unto Yahweh offerings in righteousness. 4Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto Yahweh, as in the days of old, and as in ancient years." The term refine is used 3times in this passage in one form or another and it is from the root of the word for Zerepath #6884 in the Strong's. Who is Yahshua going to refine in this passage brethren? He is going to purify the sons of Levi or the Levites and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness. We must fulfill this passage brethren because the Levites of old are yet to return from captivity and we know in the millennium the Levites will offer the sacrifices before Yahweh and they shall teach the people the difference between the holy and the common and the clean and the unclean. Ezk. 44:23

Almighty Yahweh chose the Levites in Num. 8:5, 14-22: 14"In this manner you shall separate the Levites from among the children of Israel; and the Levites shall be mine. 15And after that shall the Levites go in to do the service of the tent of meeting: and you shall cleanse them, and offer them for a wave-offering.

16For they are wholly given to me from among the children of Israel; instead of all that opens the womb, even the first-born of all the children of Israel, have I taken them unto me. 17For all the first-born among the children of Israel are mine, both man and beast: on the day that I killed all the first-born in the land of Egypt I sanctified them for myself. 18And I have taken the Levites instead of all the first-born among the children of Israel. 19And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from among the children of Israel, to do the service of the children of Israel in the tent of meeting, and to make atonement for the children of Israel; that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come near the sanctuary. 20In this did Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the children of Israel, to the Levites: according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did the children of Israel to them. 21And the Levites purified themselves from sin, and they washed their clothes: and Aaron offered them for a wave-offering before Yahweh; and Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them. 22And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tent of meeting before Aaron, and before his sons: as Yahweh had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they to them. The Levites have been consecrated to Yahweh to serve before Him and do the work of the sanctuary so they are to be remembered during the 3rd and the 6th year of the sabbatical cycle for their work that they perform before Yahweh. Remember them in your prayers, remember during the feast and remember them that watch on behalf of your souls for your benefit.

 

MALAWI

Shalom Brother Robert.

Here is some more inspiring report from brother Hizzie.

Yahweh bless you.

Subject: News from Malawi

Beloved in Yahshua,

Shalom!! We thank Yahweh in the Name of Yahshua for His Love bestowed on us. We Have a reason to say "Thank you Almighty Yahweh" for He saw a need for Malawi to Receive His Word of truth. And His timing was the year 2013.

In October, I heard that three Kenyan men from Yahweh's Philadelphia Truth Congregation were coming to Malawi. And immediately, the name of the Organization struck my heart; why? Firstly because of the Name Yahweh And secondly the word Philadelphia. I was familiar with the Name-Yahweh because I spent many years as a member of The Congregation of Yahweh and later as one of The National ministers of the Church. However, the word, Philadelphia being used In connection with the Name-Yahweh, was totally a new concept to me? The brother Who told me about the visit knows my spiritual background and sought to know if I was at all aware of Yahweh's Philadelphia Truth Congregation group and its beliefs. I told him I had never ever heard about them. He asked me to accompany Him to a bus terminal to welcome the Kenyan visitors, and I agreed. So, when the day of their arrival came, we went to the bus terminal. There were many people And buses at the terminal, we did not know which bus they came in with, and personally I had never seen any picture of one of the visitors we went to meet, but when my eyes saw three men standing about 30 meters away, my heart leaped and was filled with joy; and I said to my friend " I have seen them, look, there, they are standing"!! Their greetings and hugs were warm and incited more joy within me. I realized my eyes were shading tears! And immediately I hid my face and wiped the tears in my eyes quietly. I recognized that these men were not Kenyan men or Kenyan visitors but Yahweh's servants sent to proclaim the truth of His Word.

These three Yahweh's humble servants were: Peter Mumira, Julius Ronoh and Edward Kikonye(correct the spelling please). All these are ordained elders of Yahweh's Philadelphia Truth Congregation in Kenya. From the bus terminal, we went straight to a nearby restaurant for drinks. Our fellowship there was great and to me it was a mind opener about Yahweh's Philadelphia Truth Congregation. The same day they traveled to Phalombe to start teaching to the groups there the following day. I remained in Blantyre after I requested them that on their way back from Phalombe they should teach to our group in Blantyre. After proclaiming the truth of Yahweh's Word in Phalombe, they came to us in Blantyre and I and my wife had the opportunity of hosting the Brethren. The group in Blantyre came together to hear the true Word of Yahweh. The teachings were just the answers to many questions that many of us had been asking for years. It was a time of Yahweh's visitation to our lives. After the Sabbath (Saturday sundown), Yahweh powerfully convicted our hearts that we should be re-baptized. Sunday morning, we walked to the dam and we were baptized. The elders anointed us with oil and prayed for us to receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit of Yahweh powerfully came upon all of us. It was a scene of the Glory of Yahweh- even the three Elders in Kenya will bear witness with me. Thus why we, here, in Malawi say we have every reason to say "Thank you Yahweh Almighty". So, therefore, we would like to thank every hand that donated towards the trip of our brethren to come to Malawi. Your donation has promoted the proclamation of the Message of the kingdom of Yahweh. The fire of the Message of Yahweh's kingdom is burning on here, and many are Being born anew through the baptism in water in the Name of Yahshua and the Holy Spirit of Yahweh is filling the lives of Yahweh's people. Pray for us, thank you And may Almighty Yahweh bless you.

Your brother in Yahshua,
Hizzie

Eyes on Israel

Is Pope Francis Laying The Groundwork For A One World Religion?
By Michael Snyder, on April 14th, 2013


Does Pope Francis intend to help the global elite achieve their goal of uniting all of the religions of the world under a single banner? Will he be instrumental in establishing a single global religion for the glorious "new age" that the global elite believe is coming? After he was elected, the cover of Time Magazine declared Pope Francis to be the "New World Pope", and since his election Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is going to make ecumenical outreach a top priority. He has spoken of his "determination to continue on the path of ecumenical dialogue", and he has already held a number of very high profile ecumenical meetings. Not only has he worked hard to reach out to leaders from various Christian traditions, he has also made it a point to try to acknowledge the mutual bonds that he feels with all other religions. For example, in one recent address he made it a point to say that he believes that Muslims worship and pray to the "one God" that he also worships. This "all roads lead to the same God" philosophy is a hallmark of the one world religion that the global elite have been slowly building toward for decades. The global elite know that even with a one world economy and a one world government, humanity will never be truly united until there is a single global religion. Unfortunately, this one world religion that they are seeking to establish is diametrically opposed to the Christianity that we find in the Bible. By throwing out Biblical truth for the sake of "friendship between men and women of different religious traditions", is Pope Francis fundamentally betraying the faith that he claims to represent?

If there is going to be a one world religion, there will have to be a bond formed between Roman Catholicism and Islam. They are the two largest religious traditions on the planet, and so any truly "global religion" would definitely require the participation of both of them.

That is one reason why what Pope Francis has already had to say about Islam is so noteworthy. The following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting...

I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.

The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions - I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions - it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.

But are "Allah" and the God of the Bible the same thing?

Of course not. For example, Christians believe that Jesus Christ is God. Muslims deny this vehemently. For much more on why "Allah" and the God of the Bible are not the same, please see this article.

So either Pope Francis is denying the divinity of Jesus Christ, or he is exhibiting a frightening ignorance of basic Christian theology, or there is some other agenda at work here.

During that same ecumenical meeting, Pope Francis also made it a point to state that he feels "close" to those that belong "to any religious tradition"...

In this, we feel close even to all those men and women who, whilst not recognizing themselves belonging to any religious tradition, feel themselves nevertheless to be in search of truth, goodness and beauty, this truth, goodness and beauty of God, and who are our precious allies in efforts to defend the dignity of man, in building a peaceful coexistence among peoples and in guarding Creation carefully.

It is one thing to love people and to seek to build friendships with them, but it is another thing entirely to throw out the most basic beliefs of the faith that you supposedly represent in order to promote a specific agenda.

And Pope Francis definitely appears to have an agenda. On another occasion, Pope Francis declared that it was time "to intensify dialogue" with other religions, and that he was "thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam."

But this affinity for Islam did not just begin recently. The truth is that Pope Francis was working hard to build bridges with Islam even when he was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires…

"His humility drew my attention," Sheik Mohsen Ali, an important Islamic leader in Argentina, told the Buenos Aires Herald. He "always showed himself a friend of the Islamic community."

And Pope Francis has a reputation for being a cleric that really "knows Islam"...

Sumer Noufouri, secretary-general of the Islamic Center of the Republic of Argentina, told the Buenos Aires Herald that the new pope is a "respectful, pro-dialogue person who knows Islam."

But of course Pope Francis is not just reaching out to the Islamic world.

He has also been working hard to "intensify dialogue" with other Christian traditions.

In particular, he seems quite interested in improving relations with the Orthodox churches of the east..

Before his address, the pope had a private meeting with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew from Istanbul, who attended Francis's inaugural Mass on Tuesday.

It was the first time the spiritual head of Orthodox Christians had attended a Roman pope's inaugural Mass since the Great Schism between western and eastern Christianity in 1054.

At Wednesday's meeting, Francis called Bartholomew "my brother Andrew," a reference to the apostle who was the brother of St. Peter and was the first bishop of the Church of Byzantium.

Francis also held a private session with Metropolitan Hilarion, the foreign minister of the Russian Orthodox Church, the largest in the Orthodox world.

It won't happen tomorrow, of course, but could Pope Francis be the Pope that brings the Roman Catholics and the Orthodox back together?

Hand of course a one world religion will not appear overnight either. There are far too many differences to overcome right now.

But as the world becomes increasingly unstable, people are going to be looking for answers. After the world is ravaged by economic collapse, food shortages, nightmarish pandemics, unprecedented natural disasters and horrifying wars, will it finally be ready for a one world religion that promises "peace and friendship" among all of the religions of the globe?

This is something to watch for in the years ahead. The global elite desperately want a single global religion, and they will keep moving things in that direction.

For now, Pope Francis just seems to be laying the groundwork for the one world religion that is coming. There is a 900-year-old prophecy that indicates that Pope Francis could be the last Pope. If that prophecy is true, then it will be very important to watch the actions of this Pope very carefully.

 

NEWS, NOTES, & NOTABLES

Looking Ahead to the Next New Moon:The new moon for the 12th scriptural month should be visible the evening of Sabbath, February 01, 2014. 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. 14 Is 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.
