A frequent question that individuals ask themselves and to believers is, “How do you know the Bible is true?” One of the most convincing ways to prove that this is the word of God is by prophecies. Isaiah 42:9 “Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you …
As a believer in Christ we should do our best to live after his foot steps and his words. John 8:31 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;” See also 1st Peters 2:21. Before Christ suffered for us he was celebrating the Passover with the …
Today is widely recognized as Saint Valentines Day and many will be purchasing gifts for their amorous interests. Unfortunately there is not enough love. Are you going to continue wasting your resources? Contrary to popular belief the origins of this day does not have anything to do with celebrating the death of a saint that married couples. Even if it was so that is still idolatrous; Deuteronomy 26:14 “I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away ought thereof for any unclean use, nor given ought thereof for the dead: but I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, and have done according to all that thou hast commanded me.” As the History Channel’s website declares clearly it is an effort to so call Christianize the pagan celebration of Lupercalia. It further explains that Pope Gelasus ended the celebration of Lupercalia by imposing another celebration that had nothing to do with love.
If there is true love there will be no need to buy an expensive gift. Romans 13:8 “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” The way you show love to any, especially your woman or love interest is by keeping the laws towards her. Don’t treat her like a cheap whore, but owe her your love all the days of your life. Song of Solomon 1:2 “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.” A real sister that is a woman of virtue understands that your love is better than a wine and dine. Unlike these pagans that have weird rituals, or the women today that might celebrate this year with Donald and next year with another chump; Proverbs 28:19 “He that tilleth his land shall have plenty of bread: but he that followeth after vain persons shall have poverty enough.”
Today I was fortunate to be home while it was a snowy day in NYC. Lately I have been meditating on a few ideas to record about but the one that stood out is the recent weather conditions. Don’t worry this podcast is not about any forecast, I’m not a meteorologist. Instead is about some simple facts that we might know and overlook that could make a difference at how we continue living.
This week a few changes happened quietly. 1 Thessalonians 4:11 “And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;” Verse 12: “That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.” While being sick we were able …
Shalam (Peace) Brothers and Sisters,
The first thing that comes to mind when we think of the Laws of Tabernacles is building of tents. The only requirement of this law is that the tents must be made of wood. Leviticus 23:40 “And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs [thick branches] of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.” Verse 41: “And ye shall keep it a feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.” Verse 42: “Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths:” Verse 43: “That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.”
However this podcast is not regarding the building of the tent. Instead is a continuation to the previous podcast. There is a little known law that Moses commanded our forefathers to keep every seven years in the feast of Tabernacles. That if we apply yearly, would build us up and create righteous habits. Below is a picture that was shared years ago of an example of the shell of a tent. To give younger brothers an idea for Tabernacles made of wood; how to connect the wood. Remember you could build many different ways, with this shell a tarp would be used for the walls, or wood planks on the sides drilled in. Bamboo could be used on the top for a roof.

Experiences in a “Latin” American country would remind you how much zeal our people have for their religion. Most in Latin American countries are Roman Catholics, which profess to believe in the Bible. Romans 10:1 “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God FOR ISRAEL [the so called Blacks, Hispanics, and Native American Indians] is, that they might be saved.” …
scribe to those that are conscious:
I have met brothers and sisters that make an effort to be conscious but they ignore history. One example that is vivid in my mind was when I was told by a brother that the Bible is the white man’s book. Before asking him for any proof of his statement (You just cant allow for someone to make a statement as fact without showing proof! See, 1st Thessalonians 5:21). I asked him why then was our people forbidden from reading the Bible during chattel slavery?He had no response. If we were to really examine, it is the same reason that a movie like “The Birth of a Nation” of 2016 is censored from our people, because it will bring scriptures to light that you never thought existed.
I proceeded to tell the brother that the Bible is not the white man’s book instead it is our history. From within the pages of the Holy Scriptures we read together prophecies that spoke of transatlantic slave trade. More importantly, the reason that slavery was brought upon our people. For it is often a question that so called Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans Indians ask themselves. Why did these things happen to us or Why do we suffer these things? Our experiences shape us to who we become. At times this builds unfounded bias against what could be beneficial to us. This is why we must approach our history with what we know first to be fact before we could truly learn our own greatness.
scribe to those that love THEIR history at ALL times:
Our people have the ability to be trendsetters when it comes to fashion, music, slang, etc.. However for what is important they follow trends. Droves will search the internet for “Black History Month” or something related. Memes (which means to imitate) will be posted on Facebook and other social websites associated to “Black” historical facts, but why now? One obvious reason is because this society dictates to them when they could discuss and share their own history. Although several governments recognize the month of February as Black History Month and use it as a tool for propaganda; criticism and debates are often the results of discussing black history.
Naturally that would be; since this generation is the offspring of a global society that suppressed black history. This fact is the reason why in the early 1900’s a historian by the name of Carter G. Woodson realized how difficult it was to learn about Black History, giving him the idea to start Negro History Week. Today our people are often reminded that they were in Slavery. Although they are so close to the key that will open a door of a history that is rich; corporations and governments are invested in keeping their history obscure. Thus as the historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson stated “The Mis-Education of the Negro” is the purpose present for Black History Month. If there is fake news and they are making a big deal out of it, you know there is fake history being used as a weapon against our people. If you know that Slavery was at least true, use this as a starting point to learning your true history.
A week from now the masses will be celebrating a pagan holiday that existed long before Christ. Have you ever questioned if Christmas is actually based on Christ or the Bible? You should since as child you were taught a custom that is based on a lie. Apocrypha Ecclesiasticus 34:4 “Of an unclean thing what can be cleansed? and from that thing which is false what truth can come?” There was NO Santa Claus! Remember that feeling you had when you found out the truth? What makes you think the rest is true and why then promote something that will cause your children to lose trust in you, also possibly enable them to become liars? I think its time you find out the full truth about Christmas…
When tragic deaths of oppression happen, those affected seek for answers. Isaiah 60:2 “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” Unfortunately there is gross darkness upon our people therefore they do not receive answers. Moreover their actions remain the same receiving the same results. No judgment and no justice.
See, Isaiah 59:6-10 and Isaiah 50:2.
The pictured Police badge (above) shows the origins of this profession. It’s main purpose was to enforce the laws of slavery. The majority of our people are unaware of this fact therefore they are surprised by the brutality shown today by Police. A depiction of slavery in films show this fact; like the video below from the TV show “Underground”. But if we listen to some entertainers like Snoop Dogg or Nick Cannon some of our people that do not pick up books will never learn this.
Proverbs 19:2 “Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good…” Hence when entertainers who are not properly educated teach our people to be ignorant about their history and their solution is to stand next to those that oppress them or march. They are leading you to that which is not good. It is fact that a person that is ignorant of their history will commit the same mistakes as their ancestors. Pick up the Bible and you will see that this has happened to us as a people! In other cultures instead of omitting the degrading atrocities suffered, they use them to educate themselves and others. This could be very empowering because it will give direction and hope as the podcast lesson explains. Once we learn that this is nothing new; Ecclesiastes 3:15 “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.” Then we will be able to speak clearly of the time periods that we reigned as Kings and Queens and aspire to return there. Shalam!
On July 4th (a week ago) many of our people participated in celebrating Independence Day without regard to their history. How soon they were reminded of their past! With the death of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile our people were brought back to the reality that has existed for centuries. Ironically anyone that doesn’t ignore history would have known the fact that July 4th 1776 is not the date that congress Declared their independence. Slavery began in the late 1500’s in this land that would become known as United States of America. Slavery is so deeply rooted that in the birth of this nation the authors of their document of “liberty” rejected to denounce the slave trade. Why would any descendant of slaves participate in the Satanic revelings of this nation? We know some of our people do it out of ignorance but look around, can’t you tell this is not your rest? Why do they hate you so much? You need to wake up and find out who you are and why these things are happening. Read the Slavery Flyer to start you on the right path towards peace.

In this picture you could see in the background how guns were always used against our people by those upholding the “laws” of the land. Most do not know that laws were written against our people to this very day. Slavery is still legal according to the Constitution of America. The caption below shows how the scripture said a Fugitive slave should have been treated (Deuteronomy 23:15-16) also how they do not uphold their own laws such as how slavery was a contradiction to the Declaration of Independence.
Shalam (Peace) unto you brothers and sisters: The Sabbath Day which the most High God commanded as a day for our people to gather themselves as a holy assembly is approaching. In this modern era many neglect to “physically” fellowship with Israelite believers. Hebrews 10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting …
Shalam brothers and sisters,
As we seek to break away from our distractions to gain daily improvement we must replace that idleness with discipline. Do not let the word discipline make you feel like it’s going to be an over bearing burden. Since one of the basic principles that we should of learned as babes in this truth is to pick up your Bible and read at least one chapter a day. Isaiah 34:16 “Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.” If you do not have a Bible at home of course you could read from our online King James Version. Last year we posted a message about this resource for you. As we suggested, if you took the time to read a chapter a day by now you would have finished reading a third of the Bible. Although you have this resource you should always have a hard copy with you at all times especially since the internet is not always accessible.
Think of how much free time you really have to read, on the train/bus towards work and returning home. Not to mention during lunch time, and especially when you get home instead of spending hours in front of a TV you could be reading or fellowshipping. No matter how long you been in the Truth or reading the Bible this is something you do not diminish doing. Often I come across brothers and sisters that feel that they have gain enough knowledge that they do not need to continue feeding their souls. They must of skipped over 1st Corinthians 8:1 “…Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.” Verse 2: “And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.” Most people do not realize that 1 out 4 Israelites fall off this truth and one of the causes is the cares of the world.
Yesterday we suggested that you take some time away from your schedule to listen to the radio station as we are uploading classes daily (except for the Sabbath). Earlier today in the afternoon we kept our word. Note we will be introducing music again to the radio station some time in the near future. Finally we wanted to let you know of the Spanish online Bible. Therefore if you have any brothers and sisters that are more comfortable in this language you could forward them to this resource. Be encouraged to renew yourself daily. 2nd Corinthians 4:16 “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.” Shalam!
