Are You Hesitant?

“Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: sexual immorality, impurity, indecent behavior, idolatry, witchcraft (pharmakia), hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God” (Galatians 5:19-21).

In Greek, pharmakia is the word for ‘sorcery’ and from where we get the word ‘pharmacy.’  Sorcerers used drugs to take people into an altered state of mind.  The modern-day sorcerer is a pharmacist who sells ‘legal drugs.’  These drugs change our body’s chemical imbalances to even worse imbalances which is evidenced in television commercials where the taking of one drug brings on worse side effects than the original physical issue. There is evidence that  more people who take legalized anti-depressants kill themselves than people who do not. Some drugs, like marijuana, once illegal, but have become legal, are now causing serious mental health problems for those that overuse it (due to the lack of THC controls). The increase in sorcery or ‘pharmakia’ is a sign of the end times and last days before the return of King Messiah.

In the book of Leviticus, there is an ordinance regarding sorcerers and ‘spirit-mediums.’ This ordinance speaks about ‘fornicating’ with mediums and sorcerers. ‘Fornicating’ is the sin of spiritual adultery, idolatry with those who are practicing sorcery with legalized drugs.

“The person who turns to spirit-mediums and sorcerers to go fornicating after them – I will set myself against him and cut him off from his people. Therefore consecrate yourselves–you people must be holy, Because I am Adonai your God” (Leviticus 20:6-7).

According to the list of flesh activities in Galatians 5, one who is a sorcerer will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This is not a kingdom one goes to when they die, but the Kingdom of the world to come, the Kingdom of King Messiah, the Kingdom of Elohim Himself. For those who understand the serious reprecussions of ‘legal drugs’ and using them to modify the human body, hesitating with anything ‘shot’ into their body should be a no-brainer. Unfortunately, for the ‘shot’ being promoted by not just pharmacies, but the governments around the world, the no-brainers are proving themselves as non-critical thinkers.

“I thank you because I am awesomely made, wonderfully; your works are wonders — I know this very well” (Psalm 139:14).

According to Scripture, each of us are fearfully and wonderfully made. This means that not only are we intricately made with the amazing eye or the ability to reproduce new humans from two tiny cells, but we also have been given an intricate immune system. This immune system has cells that will take any virus, fight it, kill it, remove it, and then remember it EVEN if it mutates! If that isn’t wonderful, what is? Those who truly put their faith in the God of Isra’el understand two things. One, their bodies produce greater immunity to everything thrown at their bodies on a daily basis than any vaccine can or ever will. Why do you think that every year there is another flu vaccine? Because the flu vaccine does not give a continued immunity to the flu! Someone isn’t an anti-vaxxer when they choose to use their own immune system that was given them by the Creator. It has proven itself superior to vaccines since Adam and Eve. Two, everyone dies. EVERYONE. Period. Death is a fact of life and no government leader or vaccine developer can stop death. Anyone can die from a virus as well as from the effects of the supposed ‘cure.’ Everyone dies from something!

Without going into details about the shot, it isn’t a vaccine. It should not even be called a ‘vaccine.’ It does nothing to ‘vaccinate’ anyone against the virus. All it does is make the person ‘asymptomatic’ while still passing the virus onto others. According to research done at the University of Florida, there was no ‘asymptomatic’ spread of the virus. None. It was purely a talking point to create fear in the masses (which is another subject). Now, however, there will be asymptomatic spread from those who chose to receive the shot to everyone and anyone. Of course, it be blamed on those who didn’t get the shot, but that is not the reality of this shot.

On a more deeper level, this shot does change the RNA of the human body. This technology has never been tried on humans before so everyone who pulls their sleeve up to receive this RNA-crown of slime becomes a test subject. EVERYONE. Yet, this isn’t the most dangerous part of this shot. The most dangerous part is that it is messing with the way God has created our bodies. It is changing the immune system in our bodies that was never meant to be changed. As biological warfare grows (and yes, this virus came from China), those who make billions from these shots will continue to make them, inject them, and take no responsibility for the side effects. As the human body receives more and more of these RNA deceptors in the body, no one knows exactly what will transpire in the future with the health of those who were injected. Those who do know, those who have studied this technology, world-renowned virologists, have been silenced and censored as conspiracy theorists! For reasons known only to those who buy and sell virus patents, ‘they’ don’t want anyone to know the whole truth AND they want this technology in every human on the planet. That should scare everyone, everywhere.

In every vaccine study, there has to be a control group, a group that is not given the test mixture. It is from this control group that virologists learn about the side effects of the drug or vaccine. Usually this is done for years and years before given to the public, but not this time due to ‘Operation Warp Speed.’

I choose to be part of the control group. I will wait to see what the long term effects will be – and some have not been so long term. There have been blood disorders, brain and heart issues, and death. It is being said that auto-immune diseases will also rise. I also know that being part of the control group will put me in the ‘vulnerable’ category: vulnerable to not being able to fly to visit my children, enter businesses, go to sporting events, and soon probably even to enter a grocery store.

The government’s way of dealing with people like me is a type of passport. Do you have your passport? No, you can’t come in here. No, you can’t eat here. No, you can’t live here. No. No. No. It seems that it’s nearing the time once again to wear an armband with a Yellow Star. Though we have cried out ‘Never Again,’ we are watching the foundation being poured for ‘Not Again.’ And, according to Biblical prophecy, the end times will not be history repeating itself; it will be something that has never come upon the world before.

Rosh Hashanah: A Shofar and a Crown

“Daughters of Zion, come out, and gaze upon King Solomon, wearing the crown with which his mother crowned him on his wedding day, his day of joy!” (Song of Solomon 3:11).

The Jewish New Year, also known as Rosh Hashanah or the ‘head of the year,’ occurs in the fall on the Gregorian calendar. It occurs on the same day as the Feast of Trumpets. The Feast of Trumpets occurs on the ‘first day of the seventh month’ of the Hebrew calendar, so how can Rosh Hashanah be the ‘new year’ when the first of months is given in Exodus 1:2 in the spring at the time of Passover?

The answer may be found in the command for the Feast of Trumpets to be celebrated on the ‘first day of the month’ on the New Moon. Since all Biblical months and Feast days are determined by the appearance of the new moon, it could be that the ‘first day of the seventh month’ starts a new year on a new month with a different purpose.

Jewish tradition teaches that the heavens and earth were created on the first day of the seventh month. Ten days later, after Adam and Eve sinned, there needed to be atonement –– the Day of Atonement. Though a similar concept works for the ‘first of months’ in the spring with the lamb being brought into the home on the ‘tenth day of the first month’ in preparation for Passover, this lamb was not slaughtered on the ‘tenth day.’ Also the Passover lamb was for individual redemption; Day of Atonement was for the entire nation of Israel.

In truth, Israel has two new year memorials. The first is referred to as the spiritual new year that begins with the events surrounding Passover and Unleavened Bread. The second is the civil new year called Rosh Hashanah.

The civil new year is used to count years. For example, every 50 years on the ‘tenth day of the seventh month,’ the shofar was sounded to begin the Year of Jubilee. Property was returned to its original owners and people went back home to their tribal lands to begin the 50-year cycle again. A similar command was given for the ‘year of release’ or shemitah. Every seven years was a shemitah when slaves would be released, debts would be dissolved, and the land would be given rest from planting. This ‘year of release’ began on Rosh Hashanah and ended before sunset the next Rosh Hashanah.

Does having a spiritual new year and a civil new year nullify the commands of God? Biblical days are still sunset to sunset, months are still new moon to new moon, ‘appointed times’ of Adonai are still celebrated in the spring and fall as outlined in Leviticus, and years are counted for the shemitah and the Jubilee. Scriptures that could be interpreted with either month as the beginning of the year were studied centuries ago and the elders in Israel established the Hebrew calendar with two new year beginnings.

A King’s Coronation

One of the most familiar types and shadows of Rosh One of the most interesting ‘shadows’ of Rosh Hashanah involves the crowning of a new king. When a king in Israel was coronated, the length of his reign was determined by Rosh Hasahanah. For example, if the man became king on the day before Rosh Hashanah, he would be considered king for one year with the arrival of the ‘first day of the seventh month.’ If he became king on the day after Rosh Hashanah, he was only king for one day. Whatever day the king was coronated, prophets, priests, and royal officials along with the people of Israel cheered and rejoiced. Shofars were blown and it was a time of great rejoicing. First Kings describes the coronation of King Solomon:

“The king has sent with him Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, the Kerethites and the Pelethites, and they have put him on the king’s mule, and Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet have anointed him king at Gihon. From there they have gone up cheering, and the city resounds with it. That’s the noise you hear. Moreover, Solomon has taken his seat on the royal throne” (1 Kings 1:44-48).

According to Jewish tradition, Kings of Judah were coronated on the new year day in the spring and Kings of Israel kings were coronated on the new year day in the fall. Yeshua was ‘crowned’ King of the Jews in the spring at Passover when he hung on the cross with the sign “King of the Jews” over his head. According to Biblical prophecy, Yeshua will return to Jerusalem to begin the Messianic Kingdom. With the blast of shofars, he will be coronated King over Israel and all the earth. His coronation as King of Kings, will occur on Feast of Trumpets on Rosh Hashanah and he will sit on David’s throne. At that moment, the dead will rise and those who are alive will be transformed into immortality. They will become Yeshua’s of royal priesthood and rule and reign with him for 1000 years (Revelation 20:4-6).

The prophetic vision of the Feast of Trumpets is blowing the shofar for an event that has not yet taken place. As of this day, Yeshua has not returned to Israel, has not been coronated King over Israel, nor has he taken up his throne in Jerusalem. The coronation of King Messiah on Rosh Hashanah is still to come.

“Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. For the Lord Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth.  …God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted” (Psalm 47).

Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah

In the past few years, Messianic gentiles have begun to reject the new year celebration of Rosh Hashanah as a ‘tradition of men’ because it’s not one of the Feasts of the LORD. This is grievous error because both celebrations have Biblical foundation and prophetic vision.

Messianic gentiles should take such a firm stand that Rosh Hashanah is a ‘tradition of men’ and should be avoided. Not all traditions nullify the commands of God (Mark 7:8-9). Paul commends the Corinthians for “holding onto the traditions” he passed onto them (1 Corinthians 11:1). Messianic gentiles should use every opportunity to make the Jewish people envious for their Messiah. Wild ‘gentile’ branches are not to be so arrogant over the natural ‘Jewish’ branches that they reject traditions they don’t understand. As foreigners, Messianic gentiles need to learn about the traditions as they may be the very traditions that bring a Jewish person to faith in Yeshua.

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Teruah are two different names for the same ‘appointed time.’ One day soon, on the ’first day of the seventh month,’ with the blasts of shofars, Yeshua will return in the clouds, be crowned King of Kings in Jerusalem, his Kingdom established, and his one-thousand-year Reign will begin.
