The Last Great Day

Holy Days:
Last Great Day
by Martin G. Collins
Forerunner, "Bible Study," September-October 1996

This study concludes the series on God's annual holy days. We have seen that Passover, the first festival, memorializes Jesus' sacrifice for man. The Days of Unleavened Bread instruct Christ's disciples in holy conduct. Pentecost pictures God's Holy Spirit given to His church. The Feast of Trumpets warns mankind of impending war and the return of Jesus Christ. Atonement depicts Satan being restrained and man finally becoming one with God. The Feast of Tabernacles pictures Christ's thousand-year reign of unprecedented peace and prosperity.

The final festival is the Last Great Day. It looks forward to a time after the Millennium when an awesomely wonderful period of salvation will take place. During this time the majority of mankind—rich and poor, young and old, men and women—will be resurrected and have an opportunity to inherit eternal life. Billions will qualify to enter the God Family! On the other hand, those who will not repent, who will not submit to God and His way, will be cast into the Lake of Fire and die the second—eternal—death. What a fair and merciful God we have!

Muslim confiscates Christian Bible on Temple Mount

Jewish guards prevent Christians and Jews from exercising their religious right to pray on the Temple Mount? That's right! Only Muslims have unlimited access to Judaism's most holy site. Only the Koran is permitted within. The Tanach (Jewish Scripture, known to much of the world as the "Old Testament") and Christian Scriptures (the New Testament) are forbidden. Yet Israel claims to respect the religious rights of all people.

Worldwide Church of God Feast of Tabernacles

The first time I visited Israel was with the Worldwide Church of God in 1980 to celebrate Sukkot -- the biblical Feast of Tabernacles. (Some Christians understand that Israel's harvest festival foreshadows the peace and prosperity that everyone will soon enjoy under the Messiah's golden rule). But that whirlwind experience only whet my appetite...

Holidays or Holy Days - Does it Matter Which Days We Observe?

Table of Contents

Crucial Questions
Many people are shocked to discover the origins of our most popular religious holidays. They are also surprised to find that the days God commands us to observe in the Bible—the same days Jesus Christ and the apostles kept—are almost universally ignored. Why? Also, why are today's supposedly Christian holidays observed with so many rituals and customs that are not sanctioned anywhere in the Bible? In this booklet you'll discover detailed answers to these questions.

Christmas: The Untold Story
Christmas is one of the world's most popular holidays, celebrated by people of many faiths. Yet the holiday has a strange and convoluted past, one hinted at in such puzzling symbols as decorated trees, holly wreaths and mistletoe.

Christmas vs. the Bible

Biblical Evidence Shows Jesus Wasn't Born on December 25

Easter: Masking a Biblical Truth

Many millions of people believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday morning. But do the Scriptures tell a different story? And how did rabbits and colored eggs come to be associated with Christ's resurrection?

The Resurrection Connection

Fertility Symbols: Beneath the Dignity of God

The Chronology of Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection

Halloween: A Celebration of Evil
Why would anyone celebrate a holiday emphasizing the morbid and macabre? Where did such strange customs originate?

What About Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Purim?
An important distinction between acceptable holidays and those rooted in paganism (like Christmas and Easter) is that they do not alter, replace or distort the meaning of a festival of God or other biblical truths.

God's Days of Worship
Many are surprised to learn that the Bible nowhere encourages us to celebrate Easter and Christmas. It does, however, show that God revealed a series of festivals that teach mankind about His great plan for all of us!

God's Festivals in the New Testament

Does It Matter to God?
History shows that religious authorities systematically set aside the Bible's days of worship and substituted other practices and celebrations with distinctly non-Christian origins. Is God pleased and honored with such worship?

Yom Kippur at Sdot Yam

Tradition - even empty, hollow, shallow - has assisted Jewry to preserve this Day, however imperfectly; yet I also couldn't help but think of God & Kahane who might dismiss such "worship" as vain and such "devotions" as void. Liberal, Hellenist, humanists who have nothing to do with God and are ignorant of or deny His Word as a general rule, as hypocritical & unacceptable as professing Christianity on the pagan days of Christmas and Easter...

Are We CURSING Our Land?

Good News
December 1960
Vol. IX, Number 12 

                    Are We CURSING Our Land?

Today we have severe drought in some areas -- unexpected floods in others.  It has not always been this way.  Why the change? Read who is responsible!

                        by J. W. Robinson

   LARGE portions of the United States, Australia, South Africa, which were once productive, are now drought stricken or ravaged by floods.  Streams and springs are drying up in many areas! Much of the topsoil is eroding.  Hurricanes are sweeping inland farther, and with greater frequency, than ever before! 

   Why all this distress?  Is it a NATURALLY CAUSED situation which can be explained away?  OR IS IT PUNISHMENT FOR SIN?

   If it is punishment, for whose sin are YOU being punished?

   Here certainly is a question not only our brethren on the farm need to understand, but all of us everywhere!

Why Climatic Rampage?

   Here is the answer --

   When God gave Israel the law in Mount Sinai, He told them to cultivate the land and harvest its fruit for six years (Ex. 23:10-11).  But He also included this little-known, though vitally important statute: "THE SEVENTH YEAR YOU SHALL LET IT REST AND LIE STILL ... In like manner shall you deal with your vineyard and your oliveyard."

   God made this law a part of His overall law of love.  He knows that the land needs a rest every seventh year.

   God did not say, "Do it if you WANT to."  He made it a definite command FOR OUR OWN GOOD!

   But why the increase in floods, in drought, in blowing topsoil and in tornadoes?  And why the coming war and captivity of this whole people?  What have the people done to merit such devastation?

   Let Leviticus 26:34-35 tell us.  "Then [in the near future] shall the land enjoy her sabbaths AS LONG AS IT LIES DESOLATE, AND YOU BE IN YOUR ENEMIES' LAND; then shall the land rest, AND ENJOY HER SABBATHS.  As long as it lies desolate it shall rest; BECAUSE IT DID NOT REST IN YOUR SABBATHS, WHEN YOU DWELT UPON IT."

   It is all very clear.  The land becomes desolate BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN ALLOWED TO REST AND KEEP ITS SABBATHS!

   Some who call themselves Christians show a great lack of concern for God's sabbatical year.  Does THAT show an attitude of SUBMISSION?  No, it typifies the indifference of this modern age!

   Don't think for a minute that you are on a band wagon with an easy ticket into the Kingdom of God.  YOU MUST OBEY GOD! Otherwise you will suffer with the nation when it pays in full for its sins.

   In the Scriptures God isn't speaking just to your neighbor. HE IS SPEAKING TO YOU!

God's Conditional Promises

   Are you occasionally plagued by disease among your livestock, by insect pest, or by drought?  If so, you may have been neglecting to DESERVE God's promised blessings.  God promises the obedient that He will "... satisfy your soul in drought ... and you shall be like an irrigated garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not" (Isa. 58:11).

   God commands us, in Exodus 23:25-26, "And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.  There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land."

   Again, in II Chronicles 7:13-14 God promised us, "When I shut up the heavens that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, IF My PEOPLE [Christians today] who are called by My NAME HUMBLE THEMSELVES and PRAY and SEEK My face, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and HEAL their land."

   There it is!  God's people must obey God -- and that includes the keeping of the Sabbath year.  Now is the time we need to learn TO PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER, "Casting all your cares upon Him; for He cares for you" (I Pet. 5:7).

Punishment for Disobedience

   Notice what happened once before when the people refused to obey this law.  We have a record of this in II Chronicles 36:20-21: "And them that had escaped from the sword carried he [Nebuchadnezzar] away to Babylon; where they were servants of him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia: TO FULFILL THE WORD of the Eternal by the mouth of Jeremiah, UNTIL THE LAND HAD ENJOYED HER SABBATHS: for as long as she [the land] lay desolate SHE KEPT SABBATH, to fulfill threescore and ten years." Every sabbatical year unkept meant a year in captivity for Judah! God's corrective measures are sure -- Israel, too, WILL be desolate and the land will soon ENJOY her Sabbaths because the people refuse to turn to God and keep His sabbatical years.

   God warned Israel in Leviticus 26:14-35 what would happen IF THEY DISOBEYED this law.  Israel was to receive severe punishments in four progressively worsening stages unless the nation repented.

   Some have thought this prophecy apples only to Israel's first punishment, and isn't for us today.  They quote verse 22: "I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you FEW in number; and your ways [roads] shall be desolate."

   Those who are scoffers will say, "That is no concern of ours: there are not enough wild beasts in this nation to do any serious damage."  Don't you believe it!  We are already getting a foretaste of this condition. Rabies and other diseases that are spread by animals are becoming increasingly more destructive, especially to our children.  A typical report which illustrates this point is the following news item from Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "Red foxes are bringing an EPIDEMIC OF RABIES into heavily populated southern Ontario ... SCHOOL CHILDREN in Grey County recently began carrying clubs while waiting for school busses after one girl drove off an attacking fox ... Anti-rabies vaccine has been given to 400 persons so far this year, compared to 200 for ALL 1957 ... CATTLE have been hit by the disease" (quoted from the "Dallas Times Herald," Nov. 1, 1958).

   Besides the rabies that is being spread far and wide by foxes, skunks, mice, bats, and dogs, there are many more diseases that are bringing great destruction to our children and cattle. Diseases, however, are not the only source of trouble from animals.  Man has so abused his natural surroundings that wildlife populations and their food supplies are becoming unbalanced.  When a species becomes too numerous, or its natural food supply runs low, it is likely to cause abnormal destruction due to sheer hunger madness.  Consider the following report from TRUE MAGAZINE, March, 1960:

   "There are twice as many rats in the world as people -- about five billion (400 million rats in the U. S.). EVERY 12TH FARM IN THE WORLD PRODUCES FOOD ONLY TO FEED RATS; a total of about two million average sized modern farms! ..."  Wild animals are destined to become even more destructive THROUGHOUT the world BECAUSE MEN HAVE SEVERELY ABUSED THE LAND.

How to Keep the Sabbath Year

   We know that "all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in RIGHTEOUSNESS" (II Tim. 3:16).  We know also that we are COMMANDED to keep the Sabbath year and that "ALL {GOD'S} COMMANDMENTS are RIGHTEOUSNESS (Ps. 119:172)."  Therefore let us look into the Scriptures for instruction in the keeping of the Sabbath year.

   God's instructions, in Leviticus 25:3-7, for the Sabbath year are very thorough and complete and are easily understood.  [I quote from the Moffatt translation here because it is more easily understood than is the King James Version.  The meaning, however, is identical in both].

   "For six years you may sow your field, for six years you may prune your vineyard, and gather in the produce; but the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of ENTIRE rest FOR THE LAND, a Sabbath in honor of the Eternal, on which you must neither sow a field nor prune a vineyard, on which you must not even gather the after growth of your harvest nor grapes from your undressed vines honor of the Eternal, on which you must neither sow a field nor prune a vineyard, on which you must not even gather the after growth of your harvest nor grapes from your undressed vines produce of the land shall serve as food for you, for yourself and your slaves, male and female, for your hired servant and any outsiders staying with you, furnishing food also for your cattle and livestock!

   READ THESE VERSES AGAIN VERY CAREFULLY.  THEY ARE IMPORTANT. Notice that the sabbatical year is a year of ENTIRE rest FOR THE LAND.  Verse five tells you that you must not gather your crops or fruit for commercial use or to store up in that year.  They must, in general, be allowed to return to the soil.  Yet verse six tells you that the NATURAL produce of the land -- that which grows voluntarily -- in the sabbatical year shall serve as food for you, your servants, and strangers or guests that are with you.

   Some people are temporarily confused when reading these two verses, thinking YOU must not harvest the produce of the land in order to sell it.  Neither are you to store up the produce of the Sabbath year for future use.  You may use the voluntary produce for day-to-day needs.  God wants you to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables when they are in season, even in the Sabbath year.

   The natural produce of the land in that year will also furnish food for your cattle and other livestock which may graze on the land (verse 7).  This clearly shows that it is permissible to allow cattle to graze the fields in addition to the pasture in the Sabbath year.  To take advantage of this liberty it is permissible to allow your cattle herd to increase while they are grazing the whole farm.  One man, WHO DID NOT STUDY THESE SCRIPTURES, mistakenly assumed he should sell all of his cattle the Sabbath year!

   Definite proof that we should not plant a garden in our sabbatical year, nor harvest or can its produce, is found in Leviticus 25:20-21: "And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year?  behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our increase ..."  Notice that God is making provision for those who will be concerned about what they are going to eat during the year in which their land is resting.  If we could plant a vegetable garden in the sabbatical year, no one would wonder where his food is coming from, because a well-managed garden can be depended upon to provide an abundance of fresh food.  Under such a condition, there would be no test of the faith of the individual.

God's Blessings Promised

   Some are sure to say, "How can we make a living in the Sabbath year?  A little fresh fruit and vegetables will not support my family.  I need a cash crop.  I THINK God wants us to use our minds and learn to draw our own conclusions; and I THINK we should let one-seventh of the farm lie idle each year."  This looks good to the natural reasoning of some people, but WHAT DOES GOD SAY ABOUT IT?

   God DOES want you to use your minds.  And if you use them properly, you will come to the conclusion that EVERYONE must learn God's point of view and live by it.  The only other recourse is to follow human reasoning, independent of the Scriptures, which leads only to heartaches, sorrows, and wretchedness.  Therefore, let us turn to God's Word so that He will tell us HOW to keep the Sabbath year.

   God tells us in Leviticus 25:20-22, "And if you shall say, 'What shall we eat the seventh year?  Behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase.'  Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year; and it shall bring forth produce for three years.  And you shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old produce until the ninth year; until her produce comes in you shall eat of the old produce."

   There you see a definite command that one particular year should be set aside in which the WHOLE FARM should rest by being uncultivated.  Also you see a VERY DISTINCT PROMISE that God will so abundantly bless you in the sixth year that your produce will last until the fall crops are harvested in the end of the eighth year to give you food for the ninth year.

   You should be diligent in your work, but not overly concerned with such matters as your physical needs, because there is very little that YOU can do about it.  MAKING YOUR CROPS GROW IS ONE OF GOD'S JOBS.  Strive for greater spiritual growth and God will supply your needs.  "For your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him" (Mat. 6:8).

   "Take no thought, saying, 'What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, With what shall we be clothed?' -- for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you" (Mat. 6:25-34).

   What about shrubbery and flowers?  How should you care for them in the Sabbath year?  The answer is that you should keep the house and its surroundings neat with whatever lawn and hedge trimming may be necessary.  God would not want you to let your home become run-down and dilapidated looking.  The law of the sabbatical year involves ONLY THAT LAND FROM WHICH CROPS ARE HARVESTED, REMOVED, SOLD OR STORED.  It does not include your pasture or the lawn, shrubbery, and flowers around your home.

How to Figure Your Sabbath Year

   The Sabbath year is counted according to the Old Testament from about one Feast of Tabernacles to the next, beginning and ending in the autumn of the year.  In ancient Israel the sabbatical years included the Jubilee every 50th year.  The Jubilee is reckoned ONLY WHEN THERE IS A GOD-GIVEN PERMANENT INHERITANCE.

   After the Jews returned from captivity under Ezra and Nehemiah they were not given any permanent inheritance.  Therefore God did not require them to keep a jubilee -- but only the sabbatical years every seventh year.

   After the Jews returned from the Babylonian captivity they reckoned sabbatical years, without Jubilees, from the time they REOCCUPIED the land.  WE ARE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION TODAY.

   We have no permanent inheritance.  It is apparent that God intends us to use a personal, and not a national, system.  YOUR SABBATH YEAR WOULD BE THE SEVENTH YEAR from the time that this knowledge comes to you -- or from YOUR CONVERSION, COUNTED FROM ONE FEAST OF TABERNACLES TO THE NEXT.  Count the year of your conversion as your first year if it is more than half a year.

Is This Your Problem?

   Someone is sure to ask, "Should renters, as well as landowners, keep the Sabbath year?"  The answer is an emphatic "yes."

   There may be landowners who will not allow their renters to let the whole land rest for a year.  Renters do not have the authority to force the issue in this case but must submit to the demands of the owner.  In this case the renter should let a portion rest each year until it has all rested.  Through this method the land will at least have its recuperative rest.

   The exact year that the land rests is not of primary importance because CHRISTIANS ARE NOT NOW AN ORGANIZED COMMUNITY. THEY DO NOT ALL HAVE THE SAME SABBATH YEAR ANYWAY.

   Since renters do not own the land, they must not insist that the owners obey God.  Instead, they may have to find, work and a farm elsewhere.

   Actually, all land renters who are obeying God should, AFTER WISE COUNSEL, aim to become landowners so that they will have full authority to farm according to God's principles.  (But don't buy a farm in a drought-stricken area!)

   If you are obeying God, you, like Abraham, must be willing to leave the locality in which your ancestors lived.  But BEFORE you move into a new area, MAKE SURE YOU CAN MAKE A LIVING THERE.  God is not obligated to supply your needs if you move into a desolate, drought-stricken area, or if you grow up in such an area and stay there.  You should start your farming venture in an area that is not yet suffering.

   Then, AFTER YOU HAVE FULFILLED YOUR NORMAL OBLIGATIONS AND ARE OBEYING AND TRUSTING GOD TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY, GOD WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS!  Of this, you have His SURE PROMISE in Deuteronomy 28:1-6, 11-12 and Matthew 6:25-34.  Read these scriptures carefully.

Land Left Fallow Every 2nd or 3rd Year?

   There may arise the question, "What should be done with land that is already being left idle every second, third, or fourth year?  How should it be handled in order to conform to God's Sabbath year?

   Three general types of land are being managed in this manner. The first type to be considered is GOOD, PRODUCTIVE LAND that is periodically being left idle, usually being seeded to a winter legume or other soil builder.  Such a practice builds the soil up to a richer, more productive capacity and should in no way be discouraged.  However, this should be IN ADDITION to the sabbatical rest.

   In some Plains States areas there is fertile soil that must be SUMMER FALLOWED every other year because it receives so little rainfall that it will not produce yearly crops.  In such an area, it would be permissible to summer fallow in a sabbatical year so that the land will not be sapped of all its surface water, which is needed for the following year's crop.  Some in dry areas have not summer fallowed their land, letting weeds grow to maturity. They did not raise a crop in the eighth year.  But in each succeeding year the production has steadily increased WELL BEYOND ANY PREVIOUS YEARLY AVERAGE.

   If you were to summer fallow during your sabbatical year, you should allow some growth to spring up, but disk it into the soil while it is young and tender enough to decompose rapidly.  In the Jewish translation of the Old Testament, the word "rest" is translated by "lie fallow."

   Another grade of soil is occasionally left idle because it is too poor to produce crops any more often.  Such soil is gradually wasting away and is so thin that it should not be cultivated in the first place.  Rather, it ought to be seeded to a good pasture grass AND TURNED INTO PERMANENT PASTURE.

   It is VITALLY IMPORTANT, however, that you DO NOT OVERGRAZE YOUR LAND!  One cause of the present distress in our Western states is that much of the land has been overgrazed in the interest of TEMPORARY higher profits.

   If too many cattle are on the land they will nibble the grass SO SHORT that it will afford no PROTECTIVE COVERING for the soil. The land will then dry up -- the grass will starve -- the topsoil will be blown away.

   Some land is overgrazed even under the best grazing arrangement.  Such land has already been worn out and should be left to nature so that shrubs and trees may take over and enrich the soil and, at the same time, produce a tree crop for future generations.  Do not think of PRESENT PROFITS ONLY.  Think of future generations who will reclaim this land after the captivity -- after the land shall have kept its Sabbaths.

What Work Should One Do in the Sabbath Year?

   Some will want to know, "What should I do on the Sabbath year? I know I shouldn't become idle.  Should I get a job in town?"

   Considering the purpose of the Sabbath year, you should not get a job UNTIL YOU HAVE PUT YOUR FARM IN GOOD REPAIR.  The Sabbath year does for your land what the Sabbath day does for your physical body.  One rejuvenates the physical body; the other rejuvenates and improves the land.  Surely you have buildings and fences that need repairing.  Do you need new fences?  Then build them.  Digging post holes will not be a violation of the principle of letting the land rest.  The Sabbath year is A SABBATH FOR THE LAND.  It's the year you work for the land instead of the land working for you.

   Possibly your home needs remodeling and painting.  Take time to renovate it thoroughly in your seventh year.  That will be the best opportunity you will have to make of it the kind of home you want.  Overhaul or repair all of your machinery -- make sure that everything is in good condition before the beginning of the eighth year.

   After all this is accomplished, why not take an EDUCATIONAL VACATION?  Go to the cities' libraries and museums to study and broaden your understanding of the world around you.  You might also visit some of the nation's beautiful parks or attend concerts that would be inaccessible in the other six years. 
   When you have done all of these things that you CAN AFFORD -- go ahead and set a job for the remainder of the year!  IT IS GOOD TO STAY BUSY, and the extra money can certainly be useful.

Trust God

   Remember that the Sabbath year is a time for rejoicing, created for the benefit of man.  If you OBEY God and TRUST Him, in FAITH, He will fully supply all your needs.  In Deuteronomy 11:13-15 God promises you that if you OBEY Him, He will send you rain at the right season so that your fields will produce abundant crops and your pastures plenty of grass "... that you may eat and be satisfied."

   Do you think it would be difficult for God to punish the nation WITHOUT INJURING YOU?  Turn to Psalm 91:7-10 and read God's answer to this question: "A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.  Only with your eyes shall you see the reward of the wicked.  Because you have made the Eternal, who is my refuge, and the Most High, your habitation; there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come near your dwelling."

   Turn to Amos 4:7, also, and read: "I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered." This definitely PROVES that God can give YOU rain while your neighbor suffers from drought.  If you doubt that this refers to our day, read carefully verses 6-12.  The statement, "Prepare to meet your God, O Israel" at the end of verse 12 shows that this Scripture is for our day -- just before the return of Christ.

   Could you want stronger promises?  What could be stronger than these assurances taken directly from God's inspired word?  Do you believe God?  If you do not, you have a very wretched life ahead of you! Anyone can see that conditions are worsening the world over.  Human scheming certainly cannot save you from the rapidly approaching chaos and ruin.  Are you going to continue disobeying God like the world around you and suffer for it?  Or will you OBEY Him so that He can heap HIS BLESSINGS upon you?

Just keep the 10 Commandments?

Just keep the 10 Commandments?

Recently several of my senior neighbors and I were discussing religious differences. I commented whether Methodist, Catholic or Baptist, they all believe in the same basic beliefs: the Babylonian Mystery religious doctrines of "going to Heaven or Hell," Sunday over Sabbath, Christmas, Easter. They agreed everybody should "just keep the 10 Commandments."

Jesus did say we should keep the commandments, in spirit and in truth (Matthew 19:16-17). But neither Catholics or Protestants keep the commandments! They reject the plain truth of the Bible to keep their idolatrous traditions.

I asked my friends (who said we should "just keep the 10 Commandments") whether they were ready to stop keeping Sunday and start keeping the Sabbath - to "remember the Sabbath to keep it holy."   Apparently the question caught them off guard as neither replied. How about you? Will you keep the commandments, so help you God, including the Fourth Commandment?

Sodom in Prophecy

The debate over same-sex “marriage” is merely a symptom of a society that has already cast off moral restraint.

Those who defend same-sex “marriage” often argue that whether homosexuals marry or not has absolutely no impact on traditional families—that is, the rest of society. But they miss the point—as do most opponents of same-sex “marriage”: The homosexual cause has already impacted our society. A debate over homosexual “marriage” would only be possible in a society that has already cast off moral restraint.

"One shall say, I am the LORD’S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel"

Who and What is a Jew

DavidBenAriel says:

pagan man-god myths - Shy Guy

Your stereotypes sadly enslave and blind you. I don't believe Yeshua was divine when he was in the flesh and reject the accursed trinity doctrine.

"The Gentilized Israelites (many Catholics and Protestants) must confess and forsake our baptized paganism, our whitewashed heathen customs that Roman wolves have polluted the world with and misled the masses, and Judaism must reject its Babylonian relics of astrology, amulets, "hell" and other religious lies, as Zechariah proves Judah isn't perfect either. Gentilized Jews, assimilated Jews, must remember their Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities and act accordingly."
- Israel and Judah Must Get House in Order Before King Messiah Arrives


Insecure Jews begrudge I exercised my prerogative to legally change my name to a Hebrew name, while secure Jews respect it and admire it (knowing the list of Jews who have taken "Christian" names is endless). Ironically, I doubt "Yamit" or "Shy Guy" are legal surnames, while they obsess over mine. Regardless, "One shall say, I am the LORD’S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel" (Isa. 44:5).

The real truth about David Pack and Ron Weinland

When David Pack said something to the effect that the Global Church of God was not for me, I asked him why he invited me then and he then acknowledged he only invited me along with the others because he felt they were good candidates for membership. In other words, he was being deceitful.

Ron Weinland is drunk on his delusions...
Ron Weinland is a FALSE PROPHET and illegitimately claims to be one of the Two Witnesses.

Is it safe to read PCG literature?

As a former member of the Philadelphia Church of God (PCG), some have asked what I think about their literature, their Philadelphia Trumpet magazine and their pastor general Gerald Flurry.

I would prayerfully read the Philadelphia Church of God (PCG) literature with a grain of salt, like all religious literature in light of the Word of God, gleaning from it, but would avoid their organization like the plague since they’re too cultist with egomaniac Gerald Flurry.

Check out Living Church of God or United Church of God. Here's also a list of Church of God Web Site Links (for better and for worse).

Great observations

Encouraging email received:

Dear David,
Just found your sites today and really like what you have to say, you have a lot of great observations. I don't know who would have the courage to speak out against interracial marriage, well put. I'll be honest though---I'm a little skeptical about Herbert W. Armstrong but your info is a wealth of knowledge. Did I read in one of your posts that you have AIDS? How did that happen? What would you suggest for someone to do who wants to grow in truth, knowledge and grace?
Well, keep up the great work!

David Ben-Ariel refutes false accusations on Israpundit

 Christians at it again! Giant Brazilian Temple Replica Panned as 'Mockery'

DavidBenAriel says:

…ron my apologies to you but not to David Hoover (DavidBenAriel) who failed attempting to blow up the Dome of the Rock and was caught and kicked out of Israel and banned from returning. Failure has it’s price. -Yamit

Yamit, the failure is all your own. Why do you refuse to let the plain truth set you free? Why did you fail to document what you hatefully allege? Put up or shut up. I love Jerusalem, Jews and Israel, despite ignorant and prejudiced people like you (not representative of Jews or Israelis), and corrupt Israeli officials. Zion shall be redeemed with justice.

The Israeli police knew they didn’t have a shred of evidence against me other than some hateful letter filled with false accusations that misled them.

I was born David A. Hoover. However, I legally changed my name to David Ben-Ariel (with the help of my Jewish lawyer) during the Spring of 1989, as related in God-given names (otherwise you wouldn’t know about my former name).

Furthermore, this Christian Zionist doesn’t believe in the trinity, keeps Sabbath rather than Sunday, the biblical festivals (not holidays of pagan origin), the dietary laws, etc.

Most Israelites aren't Jews!

Feedback from Tom:

Reading your last commentary [The Triumph Of Jewish Survival] has reminded me you are a complete moron. You think America and England are Jews? LOL. You fool, read history, in fact, read the Bible. Your actions will come to bear you out when stand before Him. Think before you do.

You have been fooled to think this, you need to get on your knees and ask God to show this to you. There is just too much information on this matter. Nothing else to say about this.

Response to Tom:

How foolish you appear since you still don't recognize the difference between Jews (Judah) and Israel (the "lost 10 Tribes). Such ignorance is inexcusable. Satan hates this plain truth and works hard to keep folks in the dark. God knows I'm doing what I can to help spread the light about how God is faithful to Joseph and Judah and can also be trusted for His other prophecies to come true.

Congressman at Town Hall: ‘The Federal Government Can Do Most Anything in This Country’

The United States is in the terrible situation we are today, where the Constitution is trampled daily, because the voters permitted it to get this way with the steady erosion of our Constitutional rights. As Chuck Baldwin proves in many disturbing articles, both Democrats and Republicans are to blame. 

 It appears we are under a curse, our Republic sick and dying,  and the German-dominated United States of Europe will deal us the death blow before the King of the Jews, the King of Israel, comes and saves us from ourselves and our enemies and establishes the Kingdom of God.

The Triumph Of Jewish Survival

The Triumph Of Jewish Survival
God promised to preserve all Twelve Tribes of Israel throughout the generations because of His love for Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - not because of our righteousness. Furthermore, not all 12 Tribes are Jewish - most aren't Jewish. The prophecies concerning Joseph's sons Ephraim and Manasseh are fulfilled in the British-Israelites - the British Commonwealth and the United States.

The NAACP is out of order!

Re: Michelle Obama Encourages Blacks To "Increase Intensity"


Before I understood the Israelite origins of the West, our Hebrew roots, I considered myself a Gentile and I thanked God for opening up salvation to "us Gentiles." I didn't get angry at Him or Jews and call them or Him racist or have some inferiority complex or double standards where everybody can have "black pride" or "brown pride" and mention their color in their many race-conscious groups and organizations (BET, Miss Black America, Black Congressional Caucus, United Negro College Fund, NAACP, The Black Pages, the BlackMarketPlace, Brown Pride Forum), but don't you dare mention anything about the color white or proper white pride, heritage or integrity!
- The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites

It's past time white Israelites reclaim the United States and remove those who clearly don't belong here, who are out of place (some more than others), who are out of order, who prove it's unnatural for them to remain among us by their treacherous talk and militant hatred for people of white color - a threat to themselves and others, a menace to mankind.

Black Hypocrites: Move to Africa!

 Whitewashing Black Racism
By Michelle Malkin
Why haven’t national media outlets reported on the vile and violent rants of the New Black Panther Party thugs whose 2008 voter intimidation tactics got a pass from the Obama administration? Simple: Radical black racism doesn'’t fit the Hope and Change narrative.


Such black fools fulfill many stereotypes about black people. If they hate people of white color so much, then let them return to Africa where they belong; let them stop wearing clothes made possible by white inventions and using electricity and running water and driving cars or taking buses or listening to the radio or television, etc. Their dark hearts and mindsets are already primitive, so let them stop being such hypocrites and go all the way and live in huts and wear grass skirts and fight other black African tribes like they have gangs here. Good riddance!

Speaking of Colossians 2:16

It's ironic that those who would foolishly condemn keeping the biblical festivals are steeped in the whitewashed paganism of the Babylonian Mystery Religion (with its baptized paganism, its hollow daze) and refuse to see anything wrong with their spiritual adultery and idolatry!

"[Paul] warned the brethren not to be intimidated by some who were questioning their manner of keeping God's feasts, as well as the Sabbaths, new moons, and eating and drinking. He said, "So let no one judge [criticize or condemn] you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come . . . Let no one cheat you of your reward ..." (Colossians 2:16-18).

Paul was combating a group of ascetics who were introducing several strange doctrines, including worshiping angels (verse 18) and abstaining from wholesome food and drink (verse 21). He told the brethren to ignore them and continue observing what he had taught (and he certainly taught keeping the Passover, as we have seen). Regrettably, the Colossian brethren had been cowed by these self-righteous intruders and were starting to shy away from observing these feasts.

So Paul mentions how important they are, as foreshadowing coming events in God's plan for mankind. These events have not been completely accomplished so far, and many are still in the future."

Ideally, being an American would be predominately based upon these factors:

Renew America by Restoring White Dominance

Obama's driven to destroy America

"Whom God would destroy, He first sends mad." The United States elected a lie, clearly under strong delusion, and are now suffering the consequences for refusing to hear or believe the plain truth about the light-skinned soap opera black (that New Age Oprah cast her spell for over her touchy-feely audience and cursed America by promoting Obama's books - undoubtedly ghost-written - and now many are crying).

It was a sin to vote for Obama. In light of the dark days the United States has experienced under the president usurper, the fraud and foreigner, the con man from Kenya, the bastard from Africa - Obama/Soetoro/Obama -enabled by conservative cowards to occupy the Oval Office and pollute the White House, it's befitting to review and reflect upon the self-evident truths BLACK DAY IN AMERICA: Obama Wins, America Loses -

What nation in its right mind, after 9/11, after Osama (at least his collaboration with the powers that be on it), after our alleged war on terrorism, would elect a questionable and dark character who is pro-Muslim, raised during his influential years in Muslim countries, has attended a hateful Afro-racist congregation that preaches anti-American and anti-white sermons typical of Black Liberation Theology, is endorsed by avowed Black racists and rabid Nazi Muslims, etc. would let Barack Hussein Obama even entertain the notion of running for president for a second? It certainly appears America is under a curse and those who treacherously voted for that fraud and foreigner are helping to make Marxist Jeremiah Wright’s wish come true that God damn America. Shame!

Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson and others all represent the curse of reverse discrimination, the tail wagging the dog, the animals running the farm, the serious consequences for White Israelite disobedience to God.

Deuteronomy 28:43
43 “The alien [Gentile] who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower.

Deuteronomy 17:15
...you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses; one from among your [white Israelite] brethren you shall set as king over you; you may not set a foreigner over you, who is not your brother.

We've failed to learn from history and have an illegitimate president elect; we've been deaf, dumb and blind to the two witnesses of raped Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe ruins) and besieged South Africa (that testify against our madness); and we've rejected common sense. Now we'll have hell to pay for it! God save us all!

"I will say, then, that I AM NOT NOR HAVE EVER BEEN in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the black and white races---that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and black races which will ever FORBID the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race."

Why do blacks destroy and devour?

“I have given my life to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There is something that all White men who have lived here like I have must learn and know: these individuals are a sub-race. They have neither the mental or emotional abilities to equate or share equally with White men in any functions of our civilization. I have given my life to try to bring them unto them the advantages which our civilization must offer, but I have become well aware that we must retain this status: White the superior, and they the inferior. For whenever a White man seeks to live among them as their equals, they will destroy and devour him, and they will destroy all his work. And so for any existing relationship or any benefit to this people, let White men, from anywhere in the world, who would come to help Africa, remember that you must maintain this status: you the master and they the inferior, like children whom you would help or teach. Never fraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as your social equals or they will devour you. They will destroy you”

Attributed to Albert Schweitzer (I couldn't find any definite quote or source to confirm this quote, only a vehement denial by Dr Lachlan Forrow, President of the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship).

Regardless of who said it, it contains too much truth for those indoctrinated in the humanist politically correct dogma to handle. Any objective review of African history proves people of white color built up those areas they colonized (as prophesied) and people of black color tore it down when left to themselves. Raped Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe ruins) and beleaguered South Africa testify against their dangerous denial.

However, this quote from Abraham Lincoln is confirmed:

"I will say, then, that I AM NOT NOR HAVE EVER BEEN in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the black and white races---that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with White people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the White and black races which will ever FORBID the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the White race."

The White Man and Western Civilization

 The White Man's Burden: Rudyard Kipling was Right
Replace “White Man” with “Western Civilization” and Kipling is as right today as he was in 1899
by Bill Levinson


Rudyard would be considered racist by today’s perverse standards, and so what? The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites have civilized the Gentile world, as prophesied. I’m gladly as racist as the ethnocentric Bible (with its focus on the family of Jacob) teaches me to be and wholeheartedly support Israel in the Isles – regardless if that’s condemned by lesser peoples as “racist,” “colonialism,” “imperialistic,” etc.
God save South Africans and raped Rhodesia, Zimbabwe ruins, from the primitive Gentiles.

Why invoke that liberal Jewish-pimped fraud, that adulterer, that plagiarizer Michael Luther King as if he is something worthy to emulate? He’s a forged hero created by godless Jews like the terrorist Nelson Mandela – why aid and support their BIG LIE? That’s a politically correct form of racism.

Have you heard the Gospel?

Have you heard?

Recently I told someone that my doctor said I was definitely in "decline" (I have AIDS).

He said, "Can I preach the gospel to your unconverted family and friends at your funeral?" I said, "No" (for many reasons). I also said I wasn't going to have any funeral and plan on being cremated. I commented my family and friends already heard the gospel. I said, "Everybody in America has heard the gospel," and he said he wasn't so sure about that. His doubts notwithstanding, anybody who knows me knows how outspoken I am about my beliefs and how I've written extensively about them in many articles and within my book, Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall.

Beyond Babylon fulfills the need to proclaim the gospel and warn the world; it includes the truth about our Hebrew roots and responsibility (the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic peoples are an important part of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, the Tribe of Joseph specifically); about God's Sabbath and "Jewish" (biblical) Holy Days versus Satan's counterfeit Sunday and whitewashed pagan holidays like Christmas and Easter that God hates; about Israel's demise and Europe's rise - these are foundational truths.

Have you heard the gospel of the Kingdom of God is that we can be forgiven any sin we confess and forsake, so help us God, receiving the pardon and the power, that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ has got us covered; the good news of the Kingdom of God is that God is a Kingdom-Family into which we may be born again at the resurrection - born again as literal God-Beings! The good news is that the Kingdom-Family of God will be a literal government of God-Beings that will establish justice and righteousness from Jerusalem and save the earth and mankind from complete destruction and annihilation. If you hadn't heard this GOOD NEWS before, you have now!

Rapture nonsense refuted!

Don't Fall for the Rapture!
We meet the returning Christ in the air and RETURN TO EARTH - to the Mount of Olives - and reign with but under Him, composing the Kingdom of God: just like the Bible clearly says once we remove traditional blinders.

The Rapture or Place of Safety?
We know those who are accounted worthy to escape WWIII, those with a prayerful attitude and watchful spirit, growing and overcoming and sensitive to the lead of the Holy Spirit (Luke 21:34-36), will be more than provided for in "Her Place," as our gracious Lord of Hosts has promised (Revelation 12:14).

The REAL JESUS Can't Return Until...
Prophecy clearly reveals that the REAL JESUS CHRIST will not return to Earth from Heaven (in full view of all mankind -- not from some secret EU or Vatican chamber or desert cave) until after Jerusalem has suffered under a Gentile EU occupation for three and one half years

All About Water Baptism

IS WATER baptism essential to salvation? What about the "thief on the cross"? Was he saved without it? What is the proper form, or mode -- sprinkling, pouring or immersion? Should babies and children be baptized? Suppose you were baptized by a minister you have since lost confidence in. Should you be baptized over again? Suppose you were baptized "in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost [Spirit]." Should you be baptized again "in the name of Jesus" only? Should one be baptized IMMEDIATELY, or only "after a six months' probation"? Must the ordinance be performed by an ordained minister?

Not All Twelve Tribes of Israel are Jewish?
Some, in clear contradiction of the Holy Bible, pretend that all Twelve Tribes of Israel are Jewish. Such woefully ignorant or deceptive people deny the biblical distinctions between the 12 Tribes and pretend there's only one tribe: Judah.

Herbert W. Armstrong Was Ahead of His Time!
Mr. Armstrong was ahead of his time. The principles of prophecy he spoke of remain absolutely true: a final revival of the unholy Roman Empire is prophesied and the EU is forging ahead with that Frankenstein Monster now.

The Plain Truth about the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel
In order to warn Israel about the many prophecies that preview our coming captivity (due to our idolatry and immorality), it was first necessary for God to restore our identity. God has now restored our identity, He's again warning our nations, and it's up to us what will happen next.

David Pack & the Restored Church of God

When you're out and about, notice all the signs inviting you to SUNday services, offering you a welcome this SUNday, but none saying "SUNday is for pagans - we've repented and now keep the Sabbath" or "Never on a Sunday! Jesus kept the Sabbath and so do we!"

Either the ministers of those professing Christian churches are ignorant of the Scriptures and history (that only sanction the seventh day Sabbath) or they're just plain dishonest with themselves and their poor flock (that have been robbed of the plain truth).

There's no excuse for Sunday! Jesus, his disciples - the apostles - and the entire early Church of God composed of converted Jews, Israelites and Gentiles kept the seventh day Sabbath! The original faith once delivered to Jerusalem (that included the observance of the seventh day Sabbath) became corrupted by Gentilizers, Romanizers, false converts who misled folks to keep Sunday, cleverly keeping both the Sabbath and Sunday at first until they gained enough power and influence to oppose the biblical Sabbath for their traditional Sunday.

Question your minister if he's a Sunday keeper and ask your friends why folks are keeping Sunday - the first day of the week - when the Sabbath is the seventh day. Most have never thought about it, sheeple to the slaughter, but now God is bringing it to the attention of many and expects us to repent of keeping Sunday and start keeping the Sabbath that is holy to Him.

"Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy." - Exodus 20:8

"There remains therefore a rest [keeping of the Sabbath] for the people of God." - Hebrews 4:10

"Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent." - Acts 17:30

Which day is the Christian Sabbath?

Roman Catholic and Protestant Confessions about Sunday
The vast majority of Christian churches today teach the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, as a time for rest and worship. Yet it is generally known and freely admitted that the early Christians observed the seventh day as the Sabbath. How did this change come about?

Remember the Sabbath
Did you ever stop to think why Christians keep Sunday? Did they get it from the Bible? Is there a clear-cut command that says, "Thou shalt keep Sunday?" Why did Jesus worship on Saturday? Was it only because He was a good Jew? Or does it go beyond that?

God has marked the American people as his chosen nation

The man who coined the term, journalist John L. O'Sullivan, insisted that it was "by the right of our manifest destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which providence has given us for the great experiment of liberty and federated self-government." Decades later, after the closing of the frontier, writer Robert Ellis Thompson penned a study of The Hand of God in American History, which likewise proclaimed that from the time of the first settlements to the Spanish-American War God had "shaped the course of our national history for his own ends." It was a sentiment amplified by statesman-historian Albert J. Beveridge in a speech before the U.S. Senate in which he voiced unambiguous support for American annexation of the Philippines. As far as Senator Beveridge was concerned, God

has given us the spirit of progress to overwhelm the forces of reaction throughout the earth. He has made us adept at government that we may administer government among savage and senile peoples. Were it not for such a force as this the world would relapse into barbarism and night. And of all our race he has marked the American people as his chosen nation to finally lead in the redemption of the world.

Gentilized Jews, assimilated Jews, must remember their Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities and act accordingly.
