[♪ Mishkanim - "Yeshua" ♪] On July 3, 1776, the future President of the United States John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail, "The second day of July 1776 will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America." "I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival." "It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty." "It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, "guns, bells, bonfires, and illumination from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forevermore!" "You will think me transported with enthusiasm but I'm not." "I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure that it will cost us to maintain this declaration and support and defend these States." "Yet through all this gloom I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory." "I can see that the end is more than worth all the means "and that posterity will triumph in that day's transaction even although we should rue it, which I trust in God we shall not." "Yesterday, July 2, the greatest question was decided, which ever was debated in America, and a greater perhaps never was or will be decided among men." "A resolution was passed without one dissenting colony "that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States "and as such they have, and of right ought to have, full power to make war, "conclude peace, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which other States may rightfully do." "You will see in a few days a Declaration setting forth the causes "which have impelled us to this mighty revolution, and the reasons which will justify it in the sight of God and man." On July 2, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. These 3 sentences are the Declaration of Independence. "Resolved, that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, "free and independent States; "that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown; "and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain "is and ought to be totally dissolved; "that it is expedient forthwith to make the most effectual measures "for forming foreign alliances; "that a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to respective Colonies for their consideration and approbation." "And just a few days later, the Declaration setting forth the causes "which impelled us to this mighty revolution against the tyranny of rule by divine right "and the reasons which we believe justified our Declaration of Independence "from the British Crown on July 2 is this: The unanimous Declaration of the 13 United States of America." "This is the Constitution of America." "This is what constitutes us as a nation, as a people." Twelve years later, on July 21, 1788, the Constitution of the strictly limited federal government was ratified. The corporation which became known as the United States of America was born— subservient to the people, subservient to the individual states of America. But now it is a monster on the loose. It's got our heads into a noose and it just stands there watching. America, where are you now? Don't you care about your sons and daughters? Don't you know we need you now? We can't fight alone against this monster. The Christian church is asleep, dead asleep. Lukewarm would be a vast improvement. You took the Ten Commandments off your church walls; now the government is finishing the job by chiseling the commandments out of the hallowed halls of our history and our godforsaken future. This Independence Day let us remember the Creator who endowed us with rights and remember our responsibility to follow Him, not the dictates of king, pope, czars, president. Let us also remember that it is now the end of the sixth day of the week. The sun is beginning to set, and now it's time for Shabbat Night Live! [announcer] It's Shabbat Night Live from Charlotte, North Carolina, with your host, Michael Rood. Join Michael and his co-host, Chaim Goldman, as they welcome, from the Hands of Mercy in the land of Israel, Ye-shi Reinhardt. Now here he is, the "Messianic Matador" Michael Rood. Shabbat shalom, Torah fans. Good Sabbath to all the followers of Yeshua Messiah out there in cyberspace and watching via television in over 160 countries around the globe. Welcome to Shabbat Night Live. We are coming direct to you from beautiful, post-apocalyptic downtown Charlotte, North Carolina, the Messianic Disneyland of planet Earth. Here in Charlotte you can join us at our studio for Shabbat Night Live. The following morning, Arthur Bailey opens the Scriptures at the House of Israel, a leaven-free Messianic fellowship, and a veritable cornucopia of spiritual festivities awaits you here in Charlotte, North Carolina. We thank you for joining us for the leaven-free gospel of the Kingdom. No rabbinic takkanot, no Babylonian sun worship, no papal bull. This is a no man-made religion zone. We are restoring the Hebrew roots to the Christian faith, bringing back the faith once delivered to the saints when men were men, men married women, and states' rights were not being attacked by a President with an agenda to make the gross sexual perversions of pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia as socially acceptable as the sodomite health club he frequented in Chicago. Next thing you know, he'll be championing the globalist agenda of the crazed followers of a fictitious desert moon god. We are contending for the faith once delivered to the saints while the nation goes to hell in a handbasket. So welcome to our Independence Day version of Shabbat Night Live, and please welcome the producer of our internationally syndicated series from Israel, A Rood Awakening, and the executive producer of Biblical Health TV, Chaim Goldman! Chaim. >>Shabbat shalom, Michael. Shabbat shalom. >>We're definitely very independent here. You can tell. Very independent. We are swimming against the tide, against the flood that is going on. We're very excited to have all of you with us for our Independence Day festivities here. We are being broadcast to over 160 countries now around the globe on Inspiration Television. We are on, of course, live stream with the Messianic.tv high definition broadband. It starts now and goes all the way around until Monday morning when we come back into the office. So many great teachings await you. High definition. The first, the only, high definition Messianic television on planet Earth. We're also broadcasting on www.ARoodAwakening.tv. The website there has high definition video and audio only for those who do not have quite the bandwidth to be able to support the high definition. And, of course, chat is available after the program. And also iTunes downloadable podcasts in high definition, and we're also on TBN's The Church Channel, TBN's Enlace, the Spanish Christian television network broadcast to every Spanish-speaking country in the world, the Gospel Channel in Europe, Omega Television in Iceland and Scandinavian countries. And tonight on Shabbat Night Live we're going to give you an update on the astronomically and agriculturally corrected biblical Hebrew calendar. As a matter of fact, I didn't tel you this beforehand, but we have the author of that calendar with us tonight. Unbelievable. [Chaim G.] We can't seem to get rid of him on the show. We have headline news from post-Christian America, viewer mail, we have communications from cyberspace, Area 51 and beyond and our Israel update with Ariela Steagall and also our special guest from Israel, Ye-shi Reinhardt tonight. Yes. Very excited to have Ye-shi with us here. We're going to be attending the Messiah Conference in just a few days in support of the work going on in Israel with Ye-shi Reinhardt and Hands of Mercy. We'll tell you a little bit more about that later on. And tonight our teaching, From Here to Eternity: The Good News of the Apocalypse and the Demise of the New World Order. Tonight's episode: He Ain't No 8 pound 6 ounce Baby Jesus. He isn't. With eyes of fire, snow white hair, Yeshua is no longer a babe in a manger. He's taking names and kicking the masses. And so you don't want to miss this episode. And Chaim, for those who don't know, we have not only the Spanish calendario biblico Hebreo; we also have it—that's the travel version— and we have the travel version and the one that you want on your wall. Ladies and gentlemen, you need this calendar. See, we have been raised in a pagan world in which every day of the week is named after a different pagan god, every month of the year is named after a different pagan god or an emperor who became god. Days, weeks, months, and years all begin and end at completely fictitious points in time. It's as if the hands have been stripped from the face of the clock. We have no idea what time it is, but our Creator knows what time it is. And when He knows what time it is, He has given us His word and His reckoning of time. This calendar will give you the background on the restoration of the ancient calendar, the restoration work that's been done for over 20 years by the rabbinic scholars in Israel who want to bring back the ancient calendar because they know they changed it in the year 359 of the Common Era. Right in Tiberias, Israel, that's when they created a new reckoning of time and said, "We're going to use this until the Messiah comes." They said they were making takkanot. They were making a law which changed biblical law to institute a new reckoning of time. And even though you could look at it and say they had a good reason for it, Yeshua said 300 years before, "Do not follow the takkanot of the Pharisees." Okay? So Yeshua said 300 years before they made takkanot and created a new calendar, "Don't follow it." It blinds your eyes from the prophetic realities. If you want to understand the biblical prophecy, ladies and gentlemen, you can't do it from a Western Gentile perspective. You've got to get back to the Hebrew roots of the faith. You've got to understand that the first 4 gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, John— is the Messiah fulfilling the Spring Feasts of the Lord, the Book of the Revelation is the Messiah fulfilling the Fall Feasts of the Lord. If you know nothing about the Fall Feasts of the Lord, then you have joined some kind of religion in America, some kind of Gentilized version of Constantinian Churchianity, and you need to pull your head out of the sand, wake up, and come back to the faith once delivered to the saints. That's where we're going, people. Wake up! It's time! So get your calendars out there. Oh, where are we, speaking of on the calendar here? [Chaim G.] June 28 on the pagan calendar. >>June 28 on the pagan calendar. That's what we do. First of all, if we even have a slight malfunction of the neuron chains in our cranium, we can always go down the street, find a pagan, ask him what the date is. Here it is, sundown on June 28th, which means it is the 19th day of the 4th month. And at that, we are just weeks away from the great festivities coming up for the Fall Feasts. We have Yom Teruah coming up, and after Yom Teruah then we are going to be at the Feast of Hotels. >>Quite a few weeks away. Quite a few weeks away. >>They are weeks away. >>That's right, that's right. And as the Scriptures say, in Hebrews Sha'ul wrote this before the destruction of the temple. But there was already something that had transpired in the temple that they knew something was different. In the year 28 of the Common Era, that is when the scarlet ribbon that was put around the goat that was taken to Azazel— When that goat was pushed off and killed out in the wilderness, that scarlet ribbon turned white, except for beginning in the year 28, the year of Yeshua's crucifixion. The rabbis tell us it never turned white again. That miracle that happened, and recorded by the rabbis for now over 2000 years or nearly 2000 years, that very miracle never happened again. They knew something changed, and now we see the temple is destroyed, the Levitical Priesthood is in disarray, but yet Sha'ul said, "Do not forsake the assembling of yourselves together as the manner of some is, but encourage each other more and more as you see the day approaching." And he was speaking of these prophetic shadow pictures. And so the Feasts of the Lord are prophetic shadow pictures of good things to come. The Feast of Tabernacles we do not see fulfilled until the end of the Book of Revelation in the new heaven and earth. We're going to get there in the course of our From Here to Eternity series. But these are important to Yeshua. These feasts are extremely important, and that's why this year we are going to get together in Denver—Denver, Colorado. We are going to be there September 20th through the 22nd, the beginning of the Feast of Tabernacles. And of course Chaim and I, we had many great times in Israel inviting people to come to the city of Jerusalem, celebrate Sukkot. We did it for the first time together in—what year was that? >>2001. 2001, the first time that we celebrated it in Jerusalem together. And we invited people year after year. But we find that there are actually more people celebrating Sukkot and living in sukkahs in America than there are in the land of Israel. In Israel, we jokingly call it what? The Feast of Hotels. A lot of people are in sukkahs, though. But yeah— [Michael R.] That's right. The people that live there. Right. But the people that come to visit? No. They go into the hotel. Right. Israelis are in the sukkahs, and the tourists are in the hotel. So we're going to have the Feast of Hotels, and registration begins there on location September 20th at 4:00. We're going to go all through the weekend, and that is when we are releasing, ladies and gentlemen, The Chronological Gospels. And tonight at 5:00 I hit the button. It is now at the printer's. This is the last printout of it right here. Right here is what you see in my hands, ladies and gentlemen. And no, you can't get it. This is being guarded by Brink's 24 hours a day. They've got armed guards standing over this, this one manuscript of what is going to be in this format right here. And so this is going to be with us, and join us there. They tell me that here is number 1000, and by the end of this meeting tonight, this get-together, this one will be gone. This is number 1000. It'll be gone. So if you want to help us in the publishing of this and would like to donate $1000 or more, then I will give you one of the original 1000 copies. And to put this in perspective, Hemingway wrote a book, had 3000 copies; now each copy is going for $75,000. This should be worth 3 times that. Plus, Hemingway's work, the only reason he did 3000 of them was because not that many people were interested in reading it. Everyone wants this, and this is where it is. So ladies and gentlemen, by the end of this evening this will be gone. The room rate out there, first of all, we are going to make this available for a donation alone. You decide what the donation is. But if you say you're coming— >>[Chaim G.] To attend the conference. To attend the conference. To attend the conference in Denver, if you say you're coming, we are going to spend the money, we are going to plan on you being there, we'll get everything set. So if you donate $5 to get there or $5 million to get there, I don't want somebody that donates $5 million to be there that weekend not show up. Okay? I will be very offended and I will send your $5 million back. But no matter, if you give your word, we are counting on you. You can depend on us. We just don't say at the last minute, "Hey, it's a long drive. We're not going to do it." "We're not going to send our whole crew out there to do that. What was I thinking?" No. Show up if you say you're going to be there. The room rate is $85. This is at the Crowne Plaza Denver International Airport at the Convention Center. It is going to be a great time. We're going to have Mrs. Noah and Colonel Steve there for the festivities, so you don't want to miss this with your whole family. This is going to be great. Chaim, we can't wait to get at it. Here we are, headlines from post-Christian— >>[Chaim G.] Actually, no, it's America. What? >>[Chaim G.] America designed by— >>Oh! Tonight it's America: Designed by Geniuses, Run by Complete Idiots. There we go, people. I don't think more appropriate music has ever been penned by the pen of man. Beethoven couldn't come close to the appropriateness of that. Chaim, tell us, what is going on in post-Christian America? This week we're talking about marriage equality. >>[Michael R.] Marriage equality. Yes, marriage equality. That's the buzzword. [Michael R.] You're married, I'm married. That should pretty well be equal, right? Are we equal? It's amazing. The Supreme Court decision that was made this week actually was prophesied by Time magazine. Isn't that amazing that the media was able to tell what was going to happen? Or is it that the media— >>[Michael R.] It's a group of fortune tellers and soothsayers. A prognostication device unknown heretofore in history. Or is it that the media actually makes things happen by causing public opinion to shift so radically that things that were unacceptable just a short time ago— [Michael R.] And what do we have on the cover there, Chaim? This says, "Gay Marriage Already Won." "The Supreme Court hasn't made up its mind but America has." This was Time magazine April 8th of 2013. That warms my heart to see 2 ugly guys kissing. That's just a very heartwarming thing. But most likely what everybody heard is that the Supreme Court this week made a landmark decision regarding gay marriage. But the thing is is they really didn't do that. What they did is say that the states have the right to make a decision about marriage because they're the ones who issue the licenses and that the Supreme Court was not going to decide what the states should do. [Michael R.] That's a right decision. [Chaim G.] Because people don't know this and everybody should, especially believers, is that there's something called states' rights. And when the states signed on to join this Union, they were told that the US government was not going to usurp powers like this. So actually, the Supreme Court made a proper decision in doing that, in making that decision. >>Hooray, Supreme Court on that decision. But— >>[Michael R.] But!? >>But they don't just make a decision; they make commentary. And the things that were said— >>And this is where it shows the idiocy. >>Right. This is where the Supreme Court goes in that direction. This is a problem because first the media takes it and says the Supreme Court has decided that gay marriage is a constitutional right. But it did no such thing. In fact, the Supreme Court specifically did not say that gay marriage is a constitutional right. What they said is the states have a right to decide. But where this is going now is back to the states. And the battleground is now no longer in Washington; it's in the individual states. And we need to know that because the people who want this to pass know that, and the ACLU has already made an announcement, the American Civil Liberties Union has already made an announcement that they have a $10 million war chest and they are going to be spearheading a campaign to strike down state-based laws prohibiting same-sex marriage in—is it 37, 38? There are 37 states that are against it. The people of America are against it. And there are constitutional in these states that state that marriage is between a man and a woman and that there cannot be same-sex marriage. But now— >>Because that originally is based on the Scriptures. God-given rights and responsibilities, people. >>Well, and also nature. I mean, for the good of the human race you want people coming together into unions that actually procreate and cause us to move forward. So these decisions are there, but people are coming against it. And even in California they voted against it but then a court overturned it. So in California it shouldn't be but it will be. The people decided they didn't want it, but that's not good enough for the people who want it. And this is where it gets wacky, because the President of the United States, Barack Obama, is actually encouraging— >>[Michael R.] Hail to the Chief. —is actually encouraging us, the people of America, to violate states' rights. >>That's right. Listen to this. You've got to know what our fearless leader is doing. When I was growing up in Philadelphia, the age to drink liquor in Philadelphia when I was a kid was 21. In New Jersey it was 18. And so you could—I couldn't; I wasn't 18—but people drove right across the bridge— We had to drive from Michigan to Canada for the same reason. —to buy liquor, but you had to drink it legally in New Jersey. People would bring it back, but it was illegal. If you got caught bringing it back into Pennsylvania, you were arrested, you were prosecuted. So you weren't allowed to bring it back. You could drink it in New Jersey; you couldn't drink it in Pennsylvania. That was the law because you had states' rights. But Barack Obama, speaking in Africa where he now is speaking, had this to say. >>Where he's from. We're going to roll this clip of Barack Obama speaking about the fact that there are many states that don't allow gay marriage. You still have a whole bunch of states that do not recognize it. The Supreme Court continues to leave it up to the states to make these decisions, and we are going to have to go back and do a legal analysis of what that means. It's my personal belief, but I'm speaking now as a president as opposed to as a lawyer, that if you've been married in Massachusetts and you move someplace else, you're still married and that under federal law you should be able to obtain the benefits of any lawfully married couple. So what Barack Obama is saying: Go buy the liquor in New Jersey and bring it back to Pennsylvania. Go to another state, get married, come back. The US government will now recognize it. So this makes it so that the states don't really have rights because what we know will happen over time—this is allowed to happen— people will go across to whatever state, as long as we have enough states where there's one on the border, you go across, you get married, you come back, the US government says everything is there, the IRS will recognize it, and eventually states will have to say, "Everybody is getting gay marriage anyway." "For economic reasons—we're losing wedding halls and stuff— we just need to change the law." And the President of the United States is encouraging this. >>[Michael R.] That's right. It's a violation of states' rights. Send him right back to Africa where he came from. He can keep Third World countries Third World countries. By the way, the countries he's in, it's illegal, gay marriage. Homosexuality is even illegal in a lot of these countries. That's right. They execute homosexuals. >>Right. So where he's speaking it's not friendly to this whole policy. I know we need to finish this up, but what I think is crucial is that as believers we get a perspective on this that says all is not lost. We don't give up. We don't just allow Time magazine to dictate things. But what we need to realize is—and I'm taking this from the Shepherd's Press, which is just great—it says that the problem is that marriage is not state sanctioned in the first place. So the fact that we're giving it over to the states to define what marriage is and who it is between, this is not something that we should have let go in the first place and basically that we shouldn't be surprised that when we've raised our children in institutions where God has been removed from it completely, where it's not taught in history, it's not taught in science, it's not taught anywhere, that pretty soon the whole country is going to be making decisions that have nothing to do with the Almighty. And then the church turns around and wonders, "Why are we in this place?" Well, you know what? We removed it a long time ago. The church removed it when it started deciding which commandments to keep and which ones Jesus did away with, and we're in a state of moral relativism. But don't give up because 37 states still haven't passed it, and keep going for it and stand up for Him because He knows what marriage is. That's right. Don't let anyone call you a homophobe. Who's afraid of homos? I'm not afraid of a homo. They are, and Scalia, the dissenting justice on the Supreme Court, said this: "The other side is saying, 'If you're against gay marriage, then you're a hateful person, you're a bigoted person, you're not sophisticated.'" So Scalia is a godless— >>No, no. Scalia is standing up for— Right, right. He was standing up against Kennedy and what he was doing on it. Kennedy is making out anyone who would stand up for marriage means that you're against homosexuals. So you can't stand for anything that the liberals don't want without being a hateful, bigoted person. Don't let yourself be characterized like that. We need to come out boldly as believers. >>That's right. And we've got to clarify, we love homosexuals. I just keep them at arm's distance and pray for them so they can get delivered from the demonic spirits that torture them day and night. Just like the man in the tombs, two naked men in the tombs living there cutting themselves with stones, they hate themselves; at the same time, they want to have pride in their disgusting behaviors. They need Yeshua as much as we all do. >>They do. Absolutely. So that is what we're doing. We are presenting the truth to those who need deliverance. And we're going to take a stand in America to the very end. As it crashes and burns even, we are going to stand for that which is right. So we're going to take a break now, and we'll be back right after a word for our sponsors—you. [male announcer] This month, Michael and Judith would like to give you a gift of apocalyptic proportions. For your gift of $120 or more, A Rood Awakening International would like for you to receive these 3 resources. First, you'll receive Michael Rood's thought-provoking book, The Mystery of Iniquity: The Legal Prerequisites to the Return of the Messiah. In this book you'll learn the legal ramifications of Satan's rebellion, the deception that has been the dangerously false hope of the modern church, the key event that will begin the last 7-year countdown to Armageddon and much more. Then you'll receive the DVD teaching, Zechariah's Thermonuclear War. This is the DVD teaching you'll want to watch again and again. Michael explains revelation from Yehovah that reveals more of the timeline to the end of days. Isheh, fire offering. I knew this was revelation because there is no way that I could know it. There is no way that I could see it. I had nothing in front of me that would even let my mind go in that direction. But when I sat up on the edge of my bed I said, "This is not a woman; this is a fire." [announcer] Finally, Michael would like for you to receive 4 ounces of his exclusive Rood Brew coffee called Fireball Espresso, a taste that is as complex and distinctive as a thermonuclear blast, but when the smoke clears, it's sweet and never bitter. And as an added bonus this month, Michael would also like for you to receive this beautifully made scarf from The Lydia Project. These beautiful scarves from the land of Israel come in a variety of patterns and colors and remind us to pray for and assist the widows and orphans. They can be used as decoration accents around the home, worn as head coverings, shawls and so much more. Call the number on your screen or visit our website at www.ARoodAwakening.tv. Don't miss out on this exciting collection of gifts that Michael would like to send you to bless your life. Call now. Now, ladies and gentlemen, we have communications from cyberspace, Area 51 and beyond. Chaim, what are our letters from cyberspace? >>From cyberspace. Okay. CC writes, "I appreciate Shabbat Night Live so much." "I live in Southern California and have not found a congregation that keeps the holy days according to Yehovah's calendar." "So being with you on Friday nights is a bright spot in my week." "Michael, I enjoy your sense of humor. And I get it." We have somebody out there finally. >>Thank you. They get it! Someone gets your sense of humor. Remember, sarcasm is one of the fruits of the Spirit here at A Rood Awakening. The 10th fruit. And if you're offended by that joke, you definitely don't have that 10th fruit of the Spirit. >>Right. >>That's a test. You know what I'd say, CC? I don't know if she's in a congregation at all, but don't make a television ministry your congregation. It's great that you're here, it's great that you're learning, but plug in to a local body and serve there because that's for you to do ministry, not for it to just be ministering to you. And like people say, every congregation is imperfect because if you're in it as an imperfect person, you've blown it. It's shot. Completely messed it up. Yeah, gather people in your home. That's where the early believers got together. The kaheelah met in the homes. And once you get outside of that, you end up with problems because it's never designed to be more than those personal relationships in body ministry. That's where it all happens. That's why we do our men's fellowship here. It is elder led and it is body ministry. The Slater family writes, "I want to thank you for your ministry." "Your Solomon's Temple video literally changed our lives." "I also want to thank you for making your videos available for free on YouTube." "If not for that, I never would have even known I was in Babylon, let alone come out of it." "May the Lord continue to bless you as you have blessed." >>Amen. Amen. Well, it's our privilege. And thank you. We really have to thank all of our partners out there, the people that stand with us week after week after week in this ministry, because we are putting it out there free but it's not free. It is very expensive. >>[Chaim G.] It is free to them. It's free to you out there, but it's very expensive to do this. And thankfully, people's lives who have been changed are standing with us to help us get it out there, and that's why it's possible. If not for you, it doesn't happen. That's why we really need you to stand with us with the "Bring It To The World" and the things that we do here. So thank you. Thank you out there. [Chaim G.] Okay. We have a question from Jan. "Hi, Michael. I have been pleased to hear you speak things that the Lord has shown me— "things that I've heard from no one else, such as who the wise men were, that Yeshua was born on the first day of Tabernacles, etc. Great confirmations." "I found you via seeing/reading the Caldwells and Ron Wyatt's findings." "I was just wondering if you had noticed that in the timing of Yeshua's birth "that His conception would have been during the time of Hanukkah and it was at this feast that He announced"—not when He was conceived but later in His ministry—"that He was the Light of the World during Hanukkah, healed a man born blind, and showed that He was Lord of the Sabbath." So what about Yeshua being conceived on Hanukkah? This is where we get into The Chronological Gospels. Of course I have the professional version right here with the spiral wire binding, the only one on the planet here. We start with the 3rd incident, and this is the 8th day of the 3rd month, and this is the day that Gabriel's announcement took place to Zechariah in the temple burning incense on Shavuot. So he gives you the detail exactly what day of the week it was when this all transpired and in footnotes that last an entire page on this. And then incident number 4, Zechariah returns home the time that the priesthood terminates for the order of Aviah when they go back home, and then Elisheva conceives a son, the 5th incident, which is the 4th month. And then I have the detail on there that Elisheva, and later Miryam, probably conceived about 2 weeks after the new moon. It has been observed in primitive cultures where there is no artificial light or electromagnetic interference with natural environment that women commonly ovulate at the time of the full moon. Under these conditions, the time of the conception of both Elisheva and Miryam would have facilitated the delivery of their sons on the High Sabbaths of the 2 primary feasts of Yehovah—Passover and Tabernacles— as a prophetic shadow picture of good things to come. And that is from Melatonin, Menstruation and the Moon by Sari Cohen, who is a naturopathic doctor who did a lot of research on this. We bring a lot of stuff into this. And then finally, Gabriel's announcement to Miryam, last day of Hanukkah, Feast of Light, Shabbat, 2nd day of the 10th month, 3997 Saturday, December 22nd, 4 B.C. That is the date of the announcement. And so when we take a look at the astronomical details of His star and we see all the details concerning the death of Herod and the lunar eclipse that preceded that, then we can nail things down with amazing accuracy. And so she's absolutely right. Hanukkah is the time that the Light of the World was conceived. And of course we see later on He healed a man who was born blind, which proved to the Pharisees, according to their law and their expectation, that He was the Messiah. And we see that it has prophetic ramifications for the future that we'll see unfold in the Book of Revelation. So nothing happens by chance. Yeshua was clicking along on a timetable that was laid out a long time ago, even when Hanukkah wasn't—it's not a biblical feast. >>[Michael R.] That's right. But Yeshua did go up to the feast. They were trying to kill Him at Tabernacles, and yet He comes back just a couple months later because of the prophetic significance of Hanukkah. See, Hanukkah is a picture of Antiochus Epiphanes as the anti-Messiah, whereas Purim is a picture of Haman as the anti-Messiah. And so both of these then come back up not only in the Book of Daniel, which prophesied of them, but it then comes back up in the revelation. So remember, we are living in God's universe. The world in which we live is synchronized according to His calendar. And His time clock, whether we know about it, recognize it or not, makes no difference to Him. And you see the gospels unfold according to His calendar in The Chronological Gospels: The Life and 70 Week Ministry of the Messiah. So make sure that you get that. We are going to be coming back in just a moment— We've got another one? We have time for another one? [Chaim G.] One more question. Our producer, Fred de Cordova, just told us that we have just a few more moments on this. So thank you, Freddy. I thought he was dead, Fred de Cordova. Okay. We got him back. Paden says, "What does Shabbat shalom mean?" "How does the Torah and Christianity go together?" "I am not Jewish but want to learn more about Judaism and the Torah." "Would I be looked down upon if I went to a local synagogue to learn?" "What does it mean to be Jewish exactly?" Now, what that goes to show is—and I think everybody has experienced this— when you come into Hebrew roots you have a lot of questions. They just come flooding in. So where do we start on this? I think the basic question is— >>[Michael R.] "What does Shabbat shalom mean?" What does Shabbat shalom mean? It means Sabbath peace. It's a common phrase of greeting people before the Sabbath or on the Sabbath that you have a Shabbat of peace, you have a time of tranquility and peace and rest and everything that you need ministry for. [Michael R.] That's right. You grew up in a very Jewish community here in America. But when you move to Israel, as we did, you have an entire culture that Shabbat really starts halfway into Friday. The preparation— >>[Chaim G.] Or even Thursday night. People are saying Shabbat shalom when you say goodbye on Thursday. That's right, because it's such an anticipation for the whole country to shut down, and there is peace. There is peace. [Chaim G.] They don't do that in this country. It doesn't shut down like that. I miss it. "How do the Torah and Christianity go together?" You have 30 seconds. Well, the Torah is the schoolmaster to bring us to Messiah. We need to go back to the Torah to find out what the Almighty expects out of us because these commandments in the Torah are eternal. There are only 613. Most of them don't even apply to you. But the ones that do you keep with your whole heart because on these 2 commandments—"Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, your neighbor as yourself"—on those 2 commandments hang all of the commandments in the Torah. Which ones do you want to negate? Well, if you don't want to love your neighbor, if you don't want to love God, then start breaking any one you choose. You end up with your own religious system. Call it whatever you want. We've got to have 20,000 denominations out there anyway. So have at it if His commandments don't count. So keep the Torah, and that's what believers do. Because when you leave school, you don't then say, "Everything I learned, I'm throwing it out and I'm just going to do everything new now." You keep doing what your schoolmaster— 2+2 still equals 4 when you get out of school. [Chaim G.] What does it mean to be Jewish and would she be looked down on if she went to a local synagogue to learn Torah? Jewish is a bloodline. Judaism, however, is a religion. And going to a synagogue to learn the Torah is like a Christian going to church to learn about the real Yeshua. Okay. It'll take a while, maybe years, for that to soak in. But a lot of what we see are Sunday go to meeting and Sabbath go to meeting Jews and Christians. The best place where you can begin to learn about Phariseeism, the religion of Judaism, is in the introduction to The Chronological Gospels because if you do not understand the takkanot of the Pharisees, if you do not know their rules and regulations and what Yeshua is deliberately violating, repeatedly violating, adamantly violating, then you're missing the point of the gospel of the Kingdom and what Yeshua came to deliver us from. He came to set us free from religion. And that is just not Phariseeism; it's all man-made religion. Whenever men make rules and regulations or suspend rules and regulations of the Almighty, you now have a man-made religion. So it's important to know that if she does go and finds a synagogue that welcomes her in, that she is learning Torah within a context of Judaism, not just Torah, and she is learning Talmud and she is learning tradition, and there is a mixture just like in any religious system there is a mixture. And you need to know that as you go out to study that that's what you're in, and you're not there just learning this pure Torah. If you want to learn pure Torah, get with Torah teachers, read the Word yourself and let the Spirit of Truth lead you into truth and then get together with other believers who are doing the same. And this is what we're doing. We're teaching the Torah in everything we do. When we're teaching you the Brit Hadassah, the Book of Revelation, we're teaching the Torah. These are the instructions of the Almighty, okay? And Yeshua is the prophet who clarified these instructions, who lived these instructions. And the Torah tells us that this prophet we must shema, we must hear and obey. So we are going to keep studying the words of Yeshua and take them back to the Torah to put it all in context so that when you stand before the King that He'll say, "Good job." "Well done, faithful servant." We'll be back right after this word for our sponsors. [male announcer] Around the world today, people are hungry for answers. They are asking, "Who am I? Is this all that I am?" and praying to gods of wood and stone who cannot hear and will not answer. Who will help them understand? As followers of the Messiah, we know the truth, the truth that sets men free, the truth about the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob who sent His son Yeshua so that we may have eternal life with Him. "And the gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations." On November 2, 2012, A Rood Awakening International began to take the word of the Messiah to over 150 countries around the world on Inspiration TV and The Church Channel. But we need your help.

Welcome back to Shabbat Night Live. Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like it's winnowing down here. Here's one. I've had the sticker on it 2 weeks. Number 1000 of the 1000 here. This is on— What? >>I'll take it. Okay. Well, it looks like the 1000 of 1000 is gone. Okay. Ladies and gentlemen, Chaim Goldman, producer of Biblical Health TV. Chaim, what's on the agenda? I just wanted to say really quickly about Biblical Health TV, I want to invite everybody to come over to BiblicalHealth.tv after the show. We have what over there we call The Missing Gospel, which is the sanctification part. People focus on being saved and then being with Yeshua when He comes or going to heaven, but this whole process that we're on the earth we're supposed to get sanctified, we're supposed to get cleaned up. At Biblical Health TV we're really focused on that from a health standpoint— the mind, body, and spirit, the whole man— and we're doing a radio show that's now a TV show every Monday at 2 p.m. There's information on that on the website, Livestream Biblical Health, and it's on Messianic.tv now also as a TV show. This Monday at 2 p.m. we're going to be talking about the last fruit of the Spirit, which isn't sarcasm, because we've realized the Spirit we don't talk about enough. It's necessary in order to live this sanctified lifestyle and a healthy lifestyle. We're going to be focusing on that on Monday, so people should join us there on the show. >>Amen. Thanks, Chaim. We've got an update from Israel with Ariela Steagall, so we're going to go right now to Inside Israel. Ariela? Thank you, Michael. Welcome back to Inside Israel for Shabbat Night Live. I'm Ariela Steagall. A house in Israel that was destined for destruction was given a second chance. Eight-five Israeli artists transformed a doomed house in Caesarea to raise money for children's charities. The owner's daughter had a vision to use this home as exhibition space for Israeli artists to create, display, and sell their work to benefit local charities. They took advantage of something that already exists and something that was about to die and literally transformed it into a work of art. Before my parents decided to demolish their house, I begged them to come and conquer it. We've completely transformed the house, and it came from the idea of not starting from scratch and taking advantage of something that already exists and taking advantage of something that's about to die and really literally transforming it. In other news, we will take you to a piece that caters to our sports fans. June 13th and 14th, Formula 1 drivers turned Israel's capital into one of the most beautiful circuits in auto racing history. F1 is the highest class of single seater auto racing. Circuit races and Grand Prix events are popular internationally. Israel has only one professional racetrack and has never hosted Formula 1 cars on their home turf. The Jerusalem event featured Ferrari Challenge cars, drifting cars, and Grand Prix motorcycles. These F1 cars zoomed through the streets of Jerusalem against the classic background of the Old City walls, making history within the racing world. I'm Ariela Steagall. Thank you for joining me for this week's edition of Inside Israel. It's interesting watching that Ferrari go around Jerusalem, because basically, you take away the Ferrari and put that person in a Peugeot 309 and you have every Israeli driver in Jerusalem. There's really no difference. In fact, the streets were cleaned and there were barriers there generally. That's how people are driving en masse, trying to get in front of each other. And if you've been really anywhere in Israel, you know that to be true. Nice to see the streets drivable in that area. >>It is. It's the first time I've seen it without any traffic there. Well, Chaim, we have a special guest with us from Israel, Ye-shi Reinhardt. He is the director of Hands of Mercy. It was a few years ago we actually moved him down from Jerusalem right down to Sderot, which had been rocketed with over 10,000 missiles. He moved his ministry right down into the heat of battle, down there ministering as a believer, and the people in that area know it, and we are very proud to have him here, very thankful to have him here. So ladies and gentlemen, please help me welcome Ye-shi Reinhardt. Ye-shi. [Ye-shi R.] Shalom, Michael. >>Shalom, brother. That's a holy kiss. Shalom, Chaim. >>Shabbat shalom. >>Shabbat shalom. Thank you. He just kissed my microphone here. [Chaim G.] I heard it up close and personal. [Ye-shi R.] It's called a holy kiss. Ye-shi, it is good to have you here. Ye-shi, you and I really started back many years ago, even though we kind of officially met just a few years ago after 30 years being in Israel. Tell us a little bit of the story when we started together. I think the people out there in television land would be interested in how we ended up in the same world together. Which camera do I look at? >>Don't worry about it. >>Okay. There's a town in Michigan, Ionia, Michigan. We were part of a little Baptist church, and we both grew up in a farm community, and God allowed us to not meet until—only one time. [Michael R.] That's right. When I moved into the community, you were in Vietnam. I was a few years younger. I was yet to go into the Marines. And you were best friends with my foster brothers. So Michael was over at our house many, many times, and I didn't see him because I was fighting in Vietnam. I almost was killed, 70% disabled, came back from Vietnam somewhat of a hero in our community, and Michael and I met one time. And then we met— >>[Michael R.] Thirty years later. >>Maybe a little more. More than 30 years later. That's right. Yeah, much more than 30. About 40, 45 years. I hate to say that. >>You're right. I forget. We're getting that old. Forty-five years later. And you had been ministering to the war wounded veterans in Israel. Because of your experience, you moved right into that in Israel to minister to the soldiers there, right? >>[Ye-shi R.] Yes. We started ministry 11 years ago because of all the suicide terrorists and helping the most damaged, devastated individuals who suffer from the suicide attacks. And then we moved into helping people from rocket attacks because once Israel built the walls to protect them from suicide terrorists, then Islamic terrorists would shoot rockets over the walls. So we've been helping families for 11 years, bring them through compassion to let them know that they are loved and that God has not forgotten them. [Michael R.] That's right. Chaim, the man sitting right beside you, has a scar from the first female Palestinian suicide bomber, who walked into the shoe store he was standing in. She picked up the bomb, walked out, walked past me, the bomb went off, her head landed at my feet, but that bomb blew the whole front of the building away and drove things through the wall and actually cut him. Thankfully, we didn't need your ministry. >>Thank God. But there are so many people that do, and really a lot of them go underground. They're embarrassed if they're disabled, and it changes everybody's life, the devastation. Thankfully, it doesn't happen so much anymore. But I've been in Sderot and, wow, living under that is horrible. And Ye-shi, from when the siren goes off, how long do people have in your community to get under cover? Approximately 15 seconds from the time of the launch in Gaza to the time that it lands— >>[Chaim G.] Fifteen, 15. [Michael R.] Fifteen, 15 seconds. >>How far can you run in 15 seconds? >>That's right. So any time, day or night, around the clock for how many years now have people lived under that 15 second to destruction mode? For the last 12 years, the 25,000 people living in Sderot have had to suffer the trauma and the anxiety and the panic of that can happen at any second. >>Yeah. And it does. It happens around the clock too. And people say, "Why don't they leave? Why don't they move out?" Well, try selling your house. Try selling your house when you live there. You can't get any money for it. So they can't. Economically they can't leave. They're trapped. That's right. And so you're there, you're ministering. And even those who have been injured and wounded, I know we worked together with you with The Lydia Project, and you actually have put people to work in that community to make a living. [Ye-shi R.] Yes. Do you have something with you right here that is exemplary of some of these things? Yes, we started a home industry project because we found that giving people money just makes them more and more depressed because they have no control in their lives. But you give them some work for 5 hours a day and put food on the table for Shabbat and the rest of the week, it makes them feel like their lives have meaning. So we started a variety of home industry projects. This is one of them. It's called Hebrew Promise Jewelry. The Hebrew Promise Jewelry is like putting a mezuzah on your door. [Michael R.] To remind you to keep the commandments. This is on the wrist or around the neck. >>Yes. God said, "Put my word upon your doorpost, upon your forehead, upon your hand." And so we are doing that through jewelry. We have a very, very pretty necklace here and earrings. This is Hebrew Promise bracelets. We've taken 12 very, very powerful promises. Some of them are the love themes, some have healing, Aaronic blessing, "Be strong, courageous and do not fear." And so we are offering these on the website. We hope it's up on the website by now. So if you're able to put our website on the lower part of the screen, you'll see how you can be helping these precious moms— these are widowed moms, single moms, their daughters— and a few older grandpas are actually making the jewelry as well. We had about 12 young junior high guys making jewelry for their poor mothers just this last week because they got out of school. So it's a way that we can bring God's mercy into the lives of some precious moms there in Sderot. >>[Michael R.] That's right. We have this available through The Lydia Project so that people who call in, write in with a donation to The Lydia Project— And we suggest don't look at the value of this, look at the value of what you're doing. This is like a remembrance. "Hey, I gave $5000 to Hands of Mercy and I'm wearing this." "This is the token." It's not worth $5000; it's worth millions, it's worth eternity to some of these people because you are ministering to them, and they know you are a believer. There's no question about it. A follower of the Messiah who is extending mercy to these people. And so it's on Ye-shi's website, and we hope that your congregations out there will contact Ye-shi and buy these by the hundreds, by the thousands, and get them out there to help the work of Ye-shi Reinhardt, Hands of Mercy, in the land of Israel. We're going to be back in just a moment, after this Rood Review, with a little bit more from Ye-shi. So we'll see you in a moment. Hi, I'm Anny. >>And I'm Laura. And you're here in time for the Rood Review. Anny, I know you like to fish, but how do you feel about skiing? I don't think I'm coordinated enough to ski. Well, Michael spilled the beans last week during Shabbat Night Live that we're going to Denver, Colorado, for Sukkot this year. >>Denver? >>Yep, Denver. There are so many Torah fans in that part of the country that never get to join us for our events because of the distance. So we're hoping by having our event in Denver, Colorado, they'll be able to join us. I will be there, and I can't wait to meet some of the people I talk to each week live and in person. I can see it now. The Rood Review live from Denver. What can we expect from this event? We're not only celebrating Sukkot, but we're also celebrating the official release of The Chronological Gospel Bible. I talked to Michael this morning, and he has got some great ideas for the event. I think I'm going to have fun putting it together. We're doing so many new things for this event. For example, no ticket charge. It's going to be a ticket by donation. >>What? >>Absolutely. We want everyone to have the opportunity to be at this event. I've heard mention of special musical guests and so much more. Laura, this could be the largest Messianic event ever. Where can we find out all the details? Visit us online at ARoodAwakening.tv/sukkot13. There you'll find all the information on the event, including the details of ticket by donation and an incredible hotel room rate. Do we have a Chronological Gospel fundraiser update yet? We're almost there. It's been incredible! We have a few Chronological Gospels manuscripts left, so we're just asking if there are a few more people who would like to get their copy of the manuscript to give us a call or visit us online. Speaking of updates, I've got the most wonderful news about the Oklahoma fundraiser. Anny, in this day and age, we need all the good news we can get. What you got? We had a fundraiser for the Oklahoma victims of the tornado in May of 2013. We realize that it's a little over a month, but people are still trying to piece their lives together. We had people, actually partners in the area, that were putting together totes full of necessary toiletries for all of the people in need. So what A Rood Awakening has decided to do is send the donations that were raised from the fundraiser to help these families, to help the people, our partners, who are actually there helping other families in their community with love. That is wonderful, Anny. That is such a great cause. I once heard that something as simple as brushing your teeth or washing your hair can bring you comfort when you've been displaced as a result of a tragedy. So I think it's great that we're able to help them out and then fill that truck with toiletries for those victims. >>That's right. We know that we can't say thank you enough to all of our partners, but thank you for helping us, thank you for standing with us, and thank you for believing in what we do. Well, that's all for tonight. Thanks for joining us. And be sure to join us next week for the Rood Review. Welcome back to Shabbat Night Live. We are here live in the studio with Ye-shi Reinhardt, director of Hands of Mercy. His ministry is in the war-torn area of Israel, Sderot. This is one of these places that you actually see on CNN which is actually true. The rest of the land of Israel, for the most part, the sun is shining, the children are playing in the streets together, Arabs and Israelis are living together in peace and happiness, Arabs are electing their own people to the Knesset in governing, their own people. The highest standard of living, the highest education rate of all the Arab world is in Israel, but yet we've got some lunatics out there who are determined to destroy the Jewish people, and they are launching thousands and thousands of rockets against Israelis just trying to live a normal life and live according to the Torah in the south. And Ye-shi Reinhardt is right there. Ye-shi, thanks for being with us again. Thank you. It's good to be here. Ye-shi, we've got some things heating up in the land of Israel. There is no doubt with the Iranian troops that have come into the north up there with the rockets that they brought in, the big stuff that the Israelis had to go in and whack them with some big bombs to take them out in order to preempt an assault against the population of Israel. You are making provision, you are making plans for this because you know war is coming. Tell us a little bit about that. There's an estimated 100,000 rockets that the Arab nations have collected that includes those in Hezbollah, in Lebanon, Syria, and surrounding us as a nation. We're only 6.5 million Jews surrounding by 120 million Arabs, and most of them— >>[Michael R.] Six versus 120 million. And most of them want us driven into the sea. So we know that war is imminent. Any day the Syrian war can spill over into the Golan, which has already happened a few times, but, thank God, it's contained up in the north. Just in that war alone, 100,000 people have been killed in the last 25 months. It's inhumane slaughter. And now Russia is involved, America is involved. It's pulling the world into a scenario like the Gog and Magog war of Ezekiel 37. So if you have a chance, read Ezekiel 37, 38, and 39 and then pray for us. And what are you doing in the preparation for that, because people have to go underground. When these rockets, when these missiles start coming in, there's no supply of food, what you've got, you've got, and you have no idea how long you are going to be underground in a bunker. And so what is Hands of Mercy doing on that, Ye-shi? We are making thousands of bomb shelter boxes, about $125 in each box. It has survival food, meds, tape and things for the windows to seal off the windows and doors from gas. >>Yeah, chemical attack and gas attack. Israel has now supplied everyone with gas masks, and we're going through special training. But we are providing food for not only the poor people who are living with us on a daily basis but then the bomb shelter boxes will be delivered into the bomb shelters as soon as the war breaks out. Well, Ye-shi and myself, we are going to be at the Messiah Conference. Hands of Mercy will be there. This time I get to go and just to be there for Hands of Mercy, not representing A Rood Awakening. I get to be just a person in the crowd and to be there to support this brother, and I encourage you to support the Hands of Mercy mission in the land of Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, pray for the peace of all Israel and that Israel gets to know their Messiah. Amen. Ye-shi, thanks for being with us. What we're going to do now is we're going to have a short break. Actually, I want to have you join me in the Tent of Abraham for the Kiddush, for the bread and wine, and then we'll be back in post-apocalyptic Charlotte for tonight's episode, From Here to Eternity: The Good News of the Apocalypse and the Demise of the New World Order, He Ain't No 8 pound 6 ounce Baby Jesus. See you in a moment. The traditions that we have in modern-day Judaism are not what we did in the temple; they are reminders of what we used to do in the temple. But some of these traditions go back far before the Temple Period. One of these traditions: On the Sabbath when we have the bread and the wine, we have 2 loaves of bread. This reminds us of the time that the Almighty provided a double portion of manna in the wilderness to be our sustenance and that we would not have to work on the Sabbath— that He would give us what we needed if we would obey Him. Yeshua, in the last night that He was with His disciples, the evening before the Passover lambs were sacrificed, He took bread and He took wine, and He blessed the Most High with the same blessing that the Melek Tsedek blessed the Most High when He said, "Barukh atah Yehovah Eloheinu melekh ha’olam, [continues speaking Hebrew]. "Blessed are you, Yehovah, our Elohim, the King of the universe, who is the Creator of the fruit of the vine." And He took the bread and He blessed the Most High, saying, "Barukh atah Yehovah Eloheinu melekh ha’olam, ha’motzi lehem min ha-aretz." "Blessed are you, Yehovah, our Elohim, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth." Yeshua said as often as we do this, we do it in remembrance of Him because it meant, represented, and has always represented, from the time of the Melek Tsedek, that Yeshua's blood would be poured out as the sin offering, as a sin sacrifice, to pay the penalty for our transgressions and that the bread represented His broken body, which would be shed for us. As often as we do this, we do this in remembrance of Him. And so we break the bread and we remember that Yeshua is our provision. We take the wine and we know that He has paid the price and that one day at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb He is going to take a glass of wine for the first time in all these years and say, "L'chaim. To life everlasting." [♪ Steppenwolf - "MonsterSuicide/America" ♪] Please take your Chronological Gospels and turn to Section 10, The Revelation of Yeshua Messiah to Eternity. This begins in Revelation chapter 1, verse 1. "This is the revelation of Yeshua Messiah which Yehovah gave to Yeshua "to show to Yeshua's servants the things which must rapidly come to pass in the day of Yehovah." "He authenticated and sent this revelation by way of His messenger, "His bondservant"—his doulos in the Greek—"bondservant Yochanan "who bears firsthand witness of the word of Yehovah and the testimony of Yeshua Messiah and of all things that he saw." "Blessed is he who accurately knows "and those who hear and obey the words of this prophecy "and those who guard the things that are written herein at the time that their fulfillment is close at hand." "Greetings from Yochanan to the 7 kaheelah in Asia Minor." Instead of using the word churches, we are going to go back to the Hebrew, and in honor of John Wycliffe, who was burned at the stake, because the term ecclesia, which means assembly or congregation, in his English version he translated the word ecclesia as church twice. Both of those times it was in reference to a pagan temple. This did not go along well with the Roman church, and because the rest of the time he translated ecclesia as congregation or assembly, that put him in opposition to the Nicolaitan hierarchy of the church in Rome, and so that is the main reason why he was strangled and burned at the stake. And that is why we are going to take a stand with Wycliffe and we are going to go back to the Hebrew word kaheelah, which is the assembly. And so these are the 7 assemblies or kaheelot in Asia Minor. "Grace to you and peace from the one who is, and who was, and who is to come—" this is speaking of Yehovah the Father— "—and from the 7 Spirits which are before His throne." We see that these 7 Spirits before His throne, this is the nature, it is the essence of Yehovah. He is echad, He is one, but we still see that there are 7 Spirits before His throne that are sent forth into the earth. This is His nature that is before the throne, typified in the menorah. The menorah is the light in the temple, and the menorah, these 7 flames, these 7 Spirits before the throne, are typified upon the earth as a menorah, but they are an integral part of the Almighty. It is Him, it is He. "—and from Yeshua Messiah, who is the faithful witness and the firstborn from among the dead and the ruler over all the kings of the earth." "All honor to Him who loved us and washed us from our sins with His blood "and has made us to be priests and kings to Yehovah His Father; to Yeshua be glory and dominion for ever and ever. The truth." Whenever you see the word amen, in the Hebrew the expression is emet, which is truth. This is pretty much the way that we use amen as well. You know the amen corner in the church. This brother stands back there, the preacher says something he likes, he says, "Amen, brother. Amen." He's saying, "Truth, truth." "So be it. This is true." And so here it's saying this is the truth, and Yeshua is the truth. He says He is the way, He is the truth, and He is the life. I want to go into the detail of this right here because now in our notes we have verse 5: "Yeshua, who is the faithful witness and the firstborn from among the dead—" And a reference there is Psalm 16:9: "Therefore my heart was glad and my glory rejoiced: my flesh also shall rest in hope." "For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thy holy one to see corruption." See, David knew that his soul would not be left in hell. Hell is the grave. Everyone is going to hell. That's why I feel very comfortable when I tell idiots to go to hell, because everyone is going to go to hell unless their mortal body is swallowed up in immortality at the return of Yeshua. Because if you die, your body will be put in hell, in the grave, and your body will corrupt. And then there will be a resurrection, and your corrupted body will put on incorruption. The mortal who are still alive and remain until the coming of Messiah will put on immortality. There is when it is brought to pass as saying, "O death, where is your sting?" because death's sting will end. And David said that he knew that his soul would not be left in the grave, in hell. "Neither would you allow your holy one"—and he's speaking of the Messiah— "your holy one, the Messiah, to see corruption." Yeshua was in the grave. He was in hell for how long? Three days and three nights. He was raised on the third day. But yet His body did not corrupt. His body had not corrupted. Then He was the firstborn from among the dead because He then had an incorruptible body. He was raised with a body that then He would say to Miryam, "Go tell my disciples that I ascend to my Father and their Father and my God and their God." And then He ascended and took the first fruit offering as the kohen gadol, as the high priest, he took that first fruit offering, presented them before the throne in heaven, and before then we never see 24 elders in the throne room of heaven. Ezekiel never saw them. When do we see them? After Yeshua then presents the first fruits in the throne and He's back on the earth to intercept the women who had come with the burial spices. And when He accosted them on the way, He said unto them, "Yehovah saves you," it says in the Hebrew Matthew. In the Greek it says, "Peace, earthlings." That's a little Greek humor. So now the 2nd footnote here is that, "—and the ruler over all the kings of the earth." We could read the entire 2nd Psalm, but we're not going to. We're going to go to verse 7. "I will declare the decree Yehovah has said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee." See, begotten and born, different usages. As we already covered this, "this day have I begotten thee." "Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession." "Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." And this is exactly what it says here. Rulers over all the kings of the earth. He is going to dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. "Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth." "Serve Yehovah with fear, and rejoice with trembling." "Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little." "Blessed are all they who put their trust in Him." Because He will be the ruler, the prince, the king over all the kings of the earth. And then it says, "All honor to Him who loved us and washed us from our sins with His own blood." And in your Chronological Gospels you have 5 different references right here, but this is the atoning for the breaking of the blood covenant. We entered into a blood covenant at Mount Sinai. A blood covenant is whoever breaks the covenant is as dead as the animal with whose blood we were sprinkled. When Israel made a golden calf, put other gods before the Almighty, broke His commandments before Moses even returned with the tables of stone, the Almighty said, "Stand back. I'm going to kill them all." Why? We broke the blood covenant. The penalty of the broken covenant is death. And the only way the death penalty can be satisfied is by the death of the offending party, except and unless someone who never breaks the covenant could die in the place of the guilty party, thereby paying the death penalty, and then the one who died for the guilty party can renew the covenant with the guilty party, making us priests and kings again. This is exactly what it says: "And has made us to be priests and kings to Yehovah His Father." And this is what we read in Exodus chapter 19, verse 5: "Now therefore"—and this is what the Almighty said to deliver to the nation of Israel by the mouth of Moshe— "if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, "then you shall be a segulah, a precious treasure unto me above all people: because all the earth is mine. It all belongs to me." "And you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation." "These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel." See, we were offered at Mount Sinai to be His priests, to be His kings, to be His representatives to the whole world, but we violated the blood covenant. We broke it. Yeshua then has paid the price, and by His blood He's washed us from that sin because the violation of the covenant results in death. That is the curse of the law. Death is the curse of breaking the Torah. Yeshua paid the death penalty, and now He's made us priests and kings under Yehovah His Father. "To Yeshua be glory and dominion for ever and ever and ever." I hear people say, "Well, you've got to be careful." "You don't want to worship Yeshua because you're supposed to worship God." "You don't want to put Him—" You know, you just read what the exalted position of Yeshua is. I don't think you have to worry about over-glorifying Him or thinking He's too much. No. Your problem is you don't even listen to what He says, you don't obey Him! You don't do what the prophet says! You have no respect for Him! You make up your own fairy tale celestial Santa Claus Jesus. You've got your, "Oh, I like the 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus." "No, I like the 6 pound 3 ounce baby Jesus." "Oh no, I like the 4-year-old Jesus with a crown and sailing a boat and sinking all his friends' boats," from The Infancy of Christ book. People make up the most ridiculous, asinine things, and yet who is really seeing Yeshua as He is? We're going to find out, ladies and gentlemen, that like even the King James translators have it, the apostles are together and were saying, "By the hand of your holy child Jesus." Where do they get the word child? It's servant in Greek. He's not "your holy little bitty baby, 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus." No! He's a servant! And a servant is much bigger than that. Now we continue on. The next verse: "Behold, He is coming in the clouds; "every eye shall see Him, even those who pierced Him and all the families of the earth will wail because of Him." Let's go back and find out what this is saying. This is so significant, ladies and gentlemen. Daniel chapter 7, verse 13: "I saw in the night visions, "And behold, I beheld One like the Son of Man "Came with the clouds of heaven "And came to the Ancient of Days"—Yehovah. "And they brought Him near before Him "And there was given to Him glory and a kingdom "That all people, nations, and languages should serve Him." One like the Son of Man who came in the clouds. "His dominion is an everlasting dominion, "Which shall not pass away, "And His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed." This is so significant because the rabbis even question this. It talks about this in the Talmud—that the Messiah will come in the clouds. But yet it says the Messiah will come riding on a donkey. What is it? And the rabbis concluded after arguing that if we're worthy, He'll come in the clouds and if we're not worthy, He will come on a donkey. No! Wrong interpretation! He came the first time as a suffering servant to pay the atoning sin sacrifice. Then He will come in the clouds. This is the revealing of Yeshua Messiah as the King of kings, the Son that you better make up to because when He gets just a little bit hacked off, when He gets just a little bit angry, you are going to wish that you'd never been born, it says in one of the ancient texts. And then it says, "—and every eye shall see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all the families of the earth shall wail because of Him." Let's go right to Zechariah chapter 12, and in verse 9 we read, "And it shall come to pass in that day that I will seek to destroy all nations that shall come against Jerusalem." “And I will pour out upon the house of David and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; and they shall look upon Me whom they have pierced." "And they shall mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son." "They shall be in bitterness for Him as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn." "In that day there shall be great mourning in Jerusalem." We are putting it in context, ladies and gentlemen. Yochanan by revelation is telling us He is the one coming in the clouds, He is the one that they have pierced, and every eye is going to see Him and they are going to weep and they are going to wail. And I believe that this weeping and wailing is going to happen before they actually see Him. But when they see the testimony that the Almighty put in the earth when the covenant is confirmed at Yom Kippur and the Ark of the Covenant is revealed— And what happened—and I misspoke the other week— was I was speaking that the blood was on the west end of the Ark of the Covenant. No. The blood was always with the right finger sprinkled by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement on the east end of the Ark of the Covenant, on the east end. The Messiah's blood, it was reserved for the west end of the Ark of the Covenant, which is the right hand. I misspoke and, thankfully, I was corrected by one of our very observant students out there. Who was that very— Oh, Rick Titus. Thank you, Rick, for pointing that out. You never know when you're going to misspeak, and Rick is going to be there to make sure it's right by at least the next episode. So thank you, Rick. Now we're going on. "I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the ending, says Yehovah, who is and was and is to come, El Shaddai the Almighty." This is a very difficult thing to handle, ladies and gentlemen, because we see that all we have to do is go down to Revelation 1:10 where it says, "I was in the Spirit on the day of the Lord, "and heard behind me a great voice as a trumpet saying, "I am Alpha and Omega, I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the ending, the first and the last." And who is it that's speaking there? It is Yeshua, to whom all power and authority has been given. He says in Matthew 28, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." And this is what we read also in Daniel, that unto Him was given dominion and glory and kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages should serve Him. Yeshua is the focus of the adoration and the respect because of what He has done. It was given to Him. He did not come with all power and authority. He came in the Father's name, but He did not have the Father's title until that title was given unto Him. He did not have that power. He said, "There are things that only the Father knows; the Son doesn't know." But yet we see in the Book of Revelation the Father has given the Son this revelation to show to His servants. So we see that Yeshua is subservient to the Father, but He has been given the title and the authority of the Almighty. He is the judge. And in the Book of the Revelation, He is revealed as the Almighty Judge. The Father doesn't judge anything. He has put all judgment into the hands of the Son. Yeshua told this to the Pharisees. He said, "I am going to be your judge." "I am the prophet of whom Moses spoke." "You must shema me." "You must hear and obey me because you will be judged in accordance to your compliance with my words." This is what it means in the King James as it's rendered. It shall be required of Him. "I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the ending, said Yehovah, who is and was and is to come, El Shaddai the Almighty." And we go to Zechariah, as we did in our teaching at Shavuot. "It will come to pass that as everyone that is left of all the nations "that came up against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year "to worship the King Yehovah Sevaot, the Lord of Hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles." "And whosoever will not come up of all the families of earth unto Jerusalem "to worship the King Yehovah Sevaot—" And who is the King who is reigning from His throne in Jerusalem? It's Yeshua. But what is He called here? Yehovah Sevaot. Why? Because He's been given that authority. Every knee is going to bow, every tongue is going to confess. He is not on a lower level than anything except for Yehovah the Father. And so any respect given to Him is respect given to the Almighty because He's His son. I've got 4 daughters. When you show them respect—daughters, not even sons, you would think— you show them respect, you are showing me respect. That's the way it is. You cannot think too highly of my daughters. You can't do it. That's what the Almighty thinks about His son. You can't respect Him too much, you can't obey Him too much; you can't make a mistake on that line at all. And it says, "And it shall be that whosoever shall not come up "of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King Yehovah Sevaot even upon them there shall be no rain." "And if the family of Egypt doesn't go up, then they'll have no rain; "and this is the plague that Yehovah will smite the heathen that do not come up to the Feast of Tabernacles." What does he call those who do not come up to the Feast of Tabernacles? Heathen. Pagan. Sun god worshipers. The Feast of Tabernacles is important to Yeshua. And people say, "Well, do we have to keep the feast?" Do we have to keep the feast!? What kind of idiot are you!? You get to! "Do we have to keep the feast?" What kind of minimalist obedience are you looking for out there, people? The Feasts of the Lord are the most beautiful prophetic shadow pictures afforded the followers of the Messiah, and you want to keep Halloween? "Oh, well, we don't really want to do Halloween. We want to do Jesus-ween." Jesus-ween? Jesus-ween!? Easter, the bare-breasted sex goddess of Babylon, the reincarnated wife of Nimrod. You want to do an Easter egg hunt, but you don't want to keep the Feasts? Get out of your insane religious wacko stuff out there, Christian world! You're celebrating abominations. Christmas is an abomination! It's a celebration of the reincarnation of Nimrod as little baby Tammuz at the time of the winter solstice on the ancient Babylonian calendar before the procession of the equinoxes. Winter solstice, summer solstice, vernal and autumnal equinox. Get over it! Obey! Yeshua said the Feasts are important to Him. Celebrate the Feasts. Get away from this pagan sun god worship, you calf-kissing papists! May the Lord add His blessing to the reading of His holy word. Continue on. "I Yochanan"—this is verse 9—"your brother and your companion in tribulation"— and they were going through some real tribulation at this point. Yochanan at this point had been boiled in oil. This is where apple dunking started, okay? Apple dunking started where they would put these apples in boiling oil and you would have to bob for apples. If you survived it, you would be scarred for life. John's entire body was boiled in oil. This man was scarred from head to toe for the witness of Yeshua. He is. And he says, "—and also in enduring faithfulness in the kingdom of Yeshua Messiah was imprisoned on the isle of Patmos—" They not only boiled him in oil; he still would not keep his mouth shut. So they had to put him on a prison island that he couldn't get off—Patmos. "—because of the word of Yehovah and for bearing testimony of Yeshua Messiah." Man, that he would consider us brothers and companions. You know, that's where we're going. And he is now setting the stage, a man who has been tortured, on death's door, barely making it through, without skin grafts, completely scarred, now on an island, Devil's Island, Patmos, for the testimony. And now the Almighty is going to use him. Yeshua is going to give him the revelation that is going to give us hope so that we can endure unto the end with the Great Tribulation that we will all be going through if we are still alive. We're going to take a short break now. And as we do each week, this is the opportunity that we give you. As we have freely given to you and you have freely received, now this is your opportunity to turn around and freely give. If you don't, then we've seen it in the past that things go away. But if you want this to continue, if our ministry to you is of value and we are acting as Levites— Now, I know we're priests, I know we are Kohanim. Yeshua has made us priests, okay? But the Levites do the hard work. The Levites are the ones that shovel the cow dung and clean up the blood and do the flaying of the sacrifices. They're the ones that do the hard work so that the priests can enjoy things. And so we're doing the work of the Levites. And if we are doing the work of the Levite and ministering the gospel of the Kingdom and the Torah to you, then please stand with us. As it says, "The Levites not only that serve in the temple but the ones that sojourn among you, then you share and you help." And so we're here for you, and if you want us to remain here for you, then please stand with us. We give you this time. We'll be back in a moment. In Revelation 1:10 we continue. "I Yochanan was taken in the Spirit to the day of Yehovah—" See, he was not in the Spirit on the Lord's day. You can make up what the Lord's day is and you call it Sunday. That is absolutely the most ridiculous thing I ever heard. Let Jews interpret the Scriptures. The Jews have written it. At the end of the series we'll allow 5 minutes for the Gentiles to interpret all the Scriptures they have written. But this is speaking of the day of the Lord, the day of Yehovah. If it is even speaking of a day of the week, it is certainly the Sabbath because Yeshua was the Lord of the Sabbath. Sunday is the day the sun god is worshiped, the reincarnated Nimrod. It has nothing to do with the Scripture. Yeshua wasn't raised on Sunday. He was 3 days and 3 nights and raised on the 3rd day. That was the Sabbath day. When they came to the grave early the first day of the week, it was still dark and the grave was empty. It didn't say He got up the 4th night. He got up the 3rd day in time for the first fruit offering. If you don't understand the Feasts of the Lord, you'll read the gospels a lifetime and you still will be absolutely clueless what it's about. It's Yeshua fulfilling the Spring Feasts of the Lord. And if you've been raised with nothing but pagan sun god worship festivals and that's all that's been forced down your throat in your religious denomination, I'm sorry, but you're going to have to get The Chronological Gospels and come to grips with reality, okay? The Hebrew roots of the faith, not rabbinic Judaism, and certainly not Gentile Churchianity. It's time to get cleaned up. Our garments are supposed to get cleaned up in this life. You're not supposed to try to get into the Marriage Supper of the Lamb without wedding garments on because the King has already told us He's going to go around and throw everybody out of there, bind them hand and foot. In other words, you are not getting in unless you get cleaned up. And I don't care if you come up with this once saved, always saved, the fact is you're not saved yet. You'll be saved when the Captain of our salvation comes back and saves us and not until then. So quit living with all these fairy tale hyperboles that you have been raised with and let's get back to the Scripture. John—Yochanan—was taken in the Spirit to the day of Yehovah. He heard a voice behind him like the blast of a trumpet which said, "I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." "What you see"—listen up, people—"what you see, write in a scroll "and send it to the 7 kaheelot in Asia Minor; to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea." "And I Yochanan turned to see the voice that spoke to me." "And when I turned, I saw 7 golden lampstands." "In the midst of the 7 lampstands I saw"—this is a menorah— "In the midst—" What do we see in heaven? The 7 Spirits. So this is what he's seeing. "In the midst of these 7 lampstands I saw one who appeared to be the Son of Man, clothed with a haluk down to His feet—" What is a haluk? In Arabic it's jalabiya. It's what I wear on my television program, A Rood Awakening, from Israel. It's a bell-shaped garment. It's linen, goes down to the feet. This is what the Son of Man, Yeshua, was clothed with, the one that said, "I am Aleph and Tav, the beginning and the ending, the first and last." "He was clothed with a haluk down to His feet and girded about with a golden sash." The word paps, I have a note on this that I will read here. It says, "—girt about the paps with a golden girdle." That's what King James says. And then it said, "However, the sash is not worn at chest level." "The Greek mastos could have been a poor choice for the original Hebrew word," because mastos on the female side means breast; when it's male, it's nipples. That's what mastos means in Greek. And I am not under any circumstance going to imagine Yeshua with a white jalabiya with a gold bra on. I refuse to let that image of Madonna enter my head. He has got a golden sash on. I point this out. It's that, "It may have been a poor choice for the original Hebrew, which is no longer in extent." "The number of Hebrew words that remains within the Greek text "of the revelation indicates that it was most likely a Hebrew original, as was the Gospel of Matthew." We also see that I believe it was—it wasn't Epiphanius. Who was the guy, the bishop of Ceasarea, the guy that made up the whole 3½-year fairy tale in the 4th century? [audience member] Eusebius. >>Eusebius. Eusebius said that Paul wrote the Book of Hebrews in Hebrew, which, like, there's a news flash for you, writing to Messianic Jews he would write it in Hebrew. That's a no-brainer. But at least he admitted it here. So this is Yeshua. He is with a beautiful white linen haluk down to the feet, girt about with a golden sash. "His hair and beard were like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes were like a flaming fire." "His feet looked like polished brass that had been refined in a furnace, burned in a furnace"—as refined in a furnace, absolutely pure brass. And this is what you make looking glasses out of. This is what you make mirrors out of. Polished brass. And when it is pure and polished it's a pure reflection. And he looked at His feet and it was like, "Oh, he's got a great suntan." It's like you can see your reflection in these feet like polished brass. "—His voice was like the sound of roaring oceans." "In His right hand He had 7 stars; "and the words out of His mouth cut like a sharp two-edged sword—" These pictures, you know the picture of Yeshua with this big sword coming out of His mouth, and it's like, see, it's the words. When Yeshua spoke, it's like words that cut. "For the word of God is living, it's powerful, it's sharper than any two-edged sword." The words that come out of His mouth accomplish what He wants to accomplish. It is like it cuts right straight to the heart. And you can see that John falls down like a dead man when Yeshua speaks. It talks about this in Revelation 2:12. "To the messenger of the kaheelah in Pergamos, these things saith He who has the sharp sword with two edges," speaking of Yeshua. And in Revelation 19, this is at the time that Yeshua says, "Saddle up your horses. We're going to take the earth." "I saw heaven opened and behold, a white horse;"—in verse 11 of chapter 19— "He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He does judge and make war." "His eyes were like a flame of fire, on His head were many crowns; He had a name written that no man knew but He Himself." "And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of Yehovah." "And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, clean and white." "And out of His mouth went a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations." Not His tongue wagging, but He speaks a word and the nations are laid bare. Yeshua. "His face burned brighter than the strength of the sun." "And when I Yochanan saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man." Just imagine this. He sees Yeshua, His eyes on fire, white hair, He has got the stars in His hand, and he falls down like a dead man. There's no strength in him. He cannot operate. It has completely blown his mind. "And Yeshua laid His right hand upon me and said, Fear not, I am the first and the last." "I am He who was dead and is now alive; and I have the keys of death and the grave." "I have the keys to death and hell." Death and the grave. Hell is Hades. It's the grave. Hell is not a lake of fire. In the end of the Book of Revelation, Revelation chapter 20, it says that, "ha-Satan, death and hell, "and whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire." How do you cast hell into the lake of fire if hell is the lake of fire? Hell is the grave. And Yeshua has the keys to death and the grave. What He locks stays locked, what He opens will open. He has complete authority. And then He said, "Write the things which you have just seen and the things which are now and the things which shall be hereafter." And this is the outline of the Book of the Revelation. "Write the things which you have just seen." Yeshua in all of His glory and everything that is enumerated in this very thing, which is He walks among the lampstands, He is clothed down to the feet, girt about with a golden sash, His hair and His beard like wool, as white as snow, His eyes of flaming fire, His feet like polished brash refined in a furnace, His voice sounding like roaring oceans, in His right hand He has 7 stars and the words out of His mouth cutting like a two-edged sword, His face shining and burning brighter than the strength of the sun, who has the keys of death and hell. All of these things that he just saw that he's told to write are going to show up in the things which are his letters to the 7 kaheelot. And it's illustrative of things that we're going to see finally fulfilled in the end of the Book of the Revelation. "Write the things which you have just seen." Revelation chapter 1, verses 10 through 18. You have the notes in your Chronological Gospels. "—the things which are now"—and this is the letters to the 7 kaheelah exactly then, which is chapter 1, verses 20 through chapter 3, verse 22. And then "—the things which shall be hereafter"— which is then Revelation chapter 4, verses 1 through Revelation 22, verse 6. And if you will take a look at your Chronological Gospels, you will see that the very next thing, in 1:10, it is the appearance of Messiah, "—the things which you have just seen." This is the things which he has just seen, which is on page 330 in your new Bible version of the manuscript. That's what I have before me right here. And then after the letters to the 7 kaheelah, then we have on page 340 the revelation from the throne room, chapter 4, verse 1. These are the things which shall be in the future. And I will read this. "After this I looked and saw a door opened in heaven." "The first voice I heard sounded like a trumpet speaking with me, and it said, Come up here and I will show you things which shall be in the future." The one word is translated in the King James as hereafter, but it is literally, "I will show you things in the future." And so there is where we have the future. And then finally we go all the way through the Book of the Revelation. Now, ladies and gentlemen, the letters to the 7 kaheelot, the things which are now. And I begin reading, "As for the significance of the 7 stars, "which you saw in my right hand and the 7 golden lampstands, "the 7 stars are"—or represent—"the messengers to the 7 kaheelot." You'll see it says in King James angels. We covered that in one of our first segments. It is that it is angelos. Angelos is used as a messenger. It can be either human agency or divine agency. Only the context can you tell. Yochanan ben Zechariah was a messenger. He was an angelos to prepare the way of Yehovah. Was he an angel with wings singing songs? No. First of all, angels don't have wings. Angels look like men. Sometimes they're very big men. They don't have wings. Cherubs, or cherubim in Hebrew, they have wings. These living creatures have 6 wings that are surrounding the throne. But angels are never shown to have wings. Angels don't sing. At least we do not have any record of angels singing. This could very well be that we are the only ones that can sing, that this creation, what the Almighty put on the earth, we are the only ones that can sing praises to the Almighty. Just think about that. See, we have no record of angels ever singing. Oh, I know, "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing." That's a song that men sing. There's no record of angels ever singing. Ever, ever singing. So just consider this for a minute. If the Almighty is going to hear His praises sung, it's you that's got to do it. And He loves it when you do it in the shower because of all the extra reverb. So just belt it out, just belt it out in the shower. Sing praises to Him any chance that you get. I remember many years ago I was taking a shower at a truck stop. I was on the road, took a shower in the truck stop, and I went in and it was a nice hot shower in the truck stops, especially the Flying J—I'm going to give the Flying J showers a plug here. Flying J showers, really hot, really great water pressure. And so I am singing "Amazing Grace" in the shower. And then I thought, "Why am I being quiet?" "Why am I [singing quietly], amazing grace—" I was being kind of quiet. And that's not how you sing in the shower. And so I thought, "I'm behind a locked door." "There's nobody that's going to come in and beat me for singing 'Amazing Grace.'" And so I decide I'm going to sing it as loud as I can because this big shower is just great acoustics. So I'm shouting out, "Amazing grace, how sweet—" And then all these stalls of truck drivers all joined in together. There had to be 20 people, a choir of truck drivers, all singing "Amazing Grace." And then I remember the words of our fearless leader, our President, who said that the noxious chants calling for prayer to Allah, the fictitious moon god, is the most beautiful sound on earth. I think "Amazing Grace," that sound, that song is the most beautiful sound on earth. But someone calling to pray to a fictitious moon god, that's the most beautiful thing that the President of the United States has ever heard, the most beautiful sound? Man, that makes me puke. I mean, that makes my stomach turn because this is a guy who says he's a Christian and yet he is saying that he's going to have his lawyers look into how they can push forward the homosexual agenda, the very thing that the Almighty said is an abomination to Him. You know that very thing? As it says in the Scriptures, this is what Christians— See, calling this person a Christian removes all meaning for a Christian as, I guess, Nobel Prize. That's also lost all meaning as well. But it says, "Thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbor's wife to defile thyself with her." There used to be a law in America against committing adultery. But so many people wanted to do it that it's no longer illegal. "Thou shalt not let your seed pass through the fire to Molech." You don't exterminate your children. Well, now we have abortion and we have so many instances of abortion doctors and clinics murdering children who are born accidentally, and so they murder them and it's okay. They're protected now by this administration. "Neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God. I am Yehovah." "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination." It is an abomination. Of course eating pork is an abomination too and eating cats and rats and lizards is an abomination. But see, the Christian world, they don't believe the Bible; they pick and choose what they want to believe so they can make up their own religion. And so it's moral relativity. They want to divide the Torah into moral laws and civil laws, and so now you've got moral relativity that comes out of this whole thing. Where are the believers that will take a stand? "Thus saith Yehovah," and everybody who doesn't believe it can go directly to hell! Do not pass Go, don't collect $200. And if you want to think the most beautiful sound on earth is the call to prayer, the noxious chants coming out of these big speakers, out of these minarets, and in America—what do you call these mosques? Eighty percent of them have information about jihad in them or preach jihad from them. But what are we spying on? What is the Internal Revenue spying on? What is the Homeland Security spying on? It's those who are pro-Israel. They're looking at them. This is mainline news. They are analyzing them for terrorist activities. You idiots! You complete morons! You're looking at the wrong people! We love and we want to help these people, these sad worshipers of a false moon god who have no power, no reason to go on living. I mean, looking forward to 70 virgins in the afterlife, talk about sad. If that's all you've got to look forward to, you males looking forward to 70 male virgins in the afterlife, ugly male virgins in the afterlife, man, people— I'm sorry. We may have gotten off track here for a minute. But Yeshua is walking among the lampstands. And what are the lampstands? It's the assemblies, the congregations. In other words, nobody is pulling any wool over His eyes. He sees what's going on. And if you think you're going to get away with something, you can forget it because every one of these letters He starts out by citing the authority of John, by giving a praise—most of them get some kind of praise— and then there's a grievance. "You're doing this right, but we need to sit down and have a little chat "because things are about to go down in a very, very bad way unless you turn around." This is Yeshua. And this is what we're going to be going in, each one of these letters, because He is not sweet, little 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus. He has a sword that comes out of His mouth that cuts through all the haki fadi. These people that say, "Oh, I'm a Christian," you're no more a Christian, you're no more a follower of the Messiah than the President of the United States. Goodness gracious. Don't call yourself a Christian! I don't even know what that means anymore. I have no idea what it means! Does that mean you just make it up and do whatever you want to do out there? Just make it up! I was at a big Christian concert this week, and the insanity of these performers! It's like, "Where did you get your theological degree? Out of a box of Cracker Jacks?" Same place that you get your Nobel Prize nowadays? Ladies and gentlemen, Yeshua sees what's going on. He's not happy. He's throwing down the gauntlet. He is telling people to get it squared away. And if you want to find out what the Messiah is saying to the believers, then join us again next week on Shabbat Night Live. I would like to leave you with this prayer, this blessing, to the true followers of the Messiah. [speaking Hebrew] Yehovah bless you and keep you; Yehovah make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you; Yehovah lift up His countenance, His radiant, brighter than the sun countenance and give you peace. In the name of the Prince of Peace, Yeshua, our Messiah. Shabbat shalom. Shavua tov. Have a good week and we will see you next week on Shabbat Night Live. Good night.
