OUR COVER:  We have chosen the cover picture in order to highlight the article entitled “Without Hands” beginning on page 15. We hope that this article will enable you to see more into the spiritual background of the Melchizedek Priesthood. We understand that there may be some, or even many who may become somewhat upset with the reasoning employed, but we have presented plenty of Scriptures to back up what we have written. We truly hope that it will be an educational experience, but we do understand that we will receive a good number of negative comments. So be it. We are not performing this ministry to please everyone. That is an impossible task. We seek to search out and publish the truth and we are happy that Yahweh has blessed us with the mean to do so. We will await comments, both positive and negative.

For comments or inquiries please write to YEA, P. O. Box 31, Atlanta, TX 75551.

  Interesting things are taking place in today’s world that should be a warning to all. There is a series of movies that began with the title The Terminator. It is a movie about super androids being created by mankind that turn on their very creators and seek to destroy all human life. It’s kind of like the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde or the Frankenstein movies. The androids are practically indestructible and can rejuvenate themselves when damaged. Of course there are the good androids and the evil ones. But the truth of the matter is that the true character of man is basically portrayed in the fact that we are always seeking to destroy ourselves and everything that truly should matter to us. Our forefather Adam was told that he pretty much had free reign in the Garden of Eden, but only one thing was forbidden to him and as long as he did what he was supposed to do there would be no problem. But in the day that he partook of that which is forbidden, he would begin a process of sin and corruption that would lead to his own death. We know the story. We and the creation are still suffering from the consequences of his actions as well as our own.

  It is the same story over and over, again and again. We have a Creator Who gives us His instruction book, but we cast it behind as valueless and continue to walk in paths that lead to so much hurt, pain, grief, sorrow and eventually, death.

  Did you know that when the scientists completed the Manhattan Project and tested the first atomic bomb, they didn’t really know what kind of action that would result? Did you know that they feared that their act of splitting an atom might lead to a chain reaction that would destroy the whole creation? What if their fears are realized, not now, but sometime in the future just as Adam’s action caused his death, but not immediate, rather sometime in the distant future. There is a science that is being explored wherein an action in one place in the universe also causes the same action somewhere else.

  Peter writes, “But the day of Yahweh will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and righteousness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of Yahweh, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?”

  The Greek word for “elements” is stoicheion, which is defined as, something orderly in arrangement, fundamental or basic. It is the atomic world that is orderly in arrangement and the basis or fundamental things of which everything is made. “Dissolved” also had to do with breaking up. The scientists talk about the big bang that created everything. Of course that was the power of the word of creation spoken by Yahshua. According to the Scriptures, the creation is also going to be dissolved, broken up, or fly apart with a great noise and fervent heat. What Peter is describing is the greatest of all nuclear explosions that will destroy both the heavens and the earth. If the breaking of one atom can cause such destruction as we saw on Japan, what kind of explosion would it be when all atoms break apart?

  In these last days, we have developed weapons that can break apart the atomic structure. In these last days, the scientists have developed “terminator seeds” so that the seed crops will not reproduce. In these last days, homosexuality is becoming rampant, which “terminates” the original relationship and purpose for the man and woman so that they could bring forth seed, children on the earth. In these last days, people’s hearts have grown so cold that they can’t even love their offspring. They “terminate” pregnancies through abortion and even murder. How can a people who have grown so cold in their feelings toward their own offspring find favor with the great Creator? What if He decides to terminate it all because there is no longer any profit to it?

  We are born into a world that is terminal. We are terminal. We are in the process of terminating ourselves, our children, the seeds, relationships, atoms, the creation, etc.

  Yahweh terminated almost all flesh once before by water because of the great wickedness that was being committed. It is going to be terminated the second time by fire. But before that time, Yahweh promises to send one in the spirit of EliYah to turn the hearts of the children to the fathers and the hearts of the fathers to the children.

  We are at the end (termination) of the age. Yahweh is soon going to send His Son Yahshua the Messiah to this earth to put down all the rule and authority of man and to establish the kingdom of heaven. It is our only hope for salvation to be worked on this earth because man has failed to work salvation. Man terminates. Man destroys. Yahshua is going to bring forth eternal life, the opposite of termination and death. Yahshua is going to build the earth so that it will bring forth the fruits of peace and rest for a change rather than the ravages of violence and war.

  His kingdom is desperately needed in this world. Are you getting prepared for it, or are you doing your part to destroy?

  We encourage all to repent while they can. Did you know that a time is coming when the door to repentance will be closed and men will scream and cry and curse the Elohim of the heavens because of the plagues that will be poured out upon them, but they will not repent? Seek Yahweh now while He may be found. The time may be coming soon when you will seek and will not be able to find Him.

  Let’s destroy the TERMINATOR by turning to He Who is able to forgive, bless, heal and bring forth life eternal life. That’s life, not termination. One day soon the TERMINATOR will be no more. HalleluYah!!!  JH

   We have found the close interrelation between the number seven and the seventh day Sabbath, but Genesis chapter twenty one reveals more interesting ideas and concepts concerning the number seven.

  In verse 22 Abimelech and his chief captain Phicol approach Abraham in order to get him to swear an oath, “And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, Elohim is with thee in all that thou doest: Now therefore swear unto me here by Elohim that thou wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son: but according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned. And Abraham said, I will swear. And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away. And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day. And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant. And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves? And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well. Wherefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they sware both of them. Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines. And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of Yahweh the everlasting El (El Olam). (vv. 22-33)

  The first thing to notice here is the word “swear.” It is translated from the Hebrew word shaba, which is defined as; a primitive root; properly to be complete, but used only as a denominative from 7651; to seven oneself, i.e. swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times). (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Hebrew Lexicon, #7650) It is generally translated as; adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear. (IBID)

  Abraham set aside seven ewe lambs. Seven is translated from the Hebrew word sheba, which is defined as; from #7650; a primitive cardinal number; seven (as the sacred full one); also (adverbially) seven times; by implication, a week. Wow! #7650, shaba, is a denominative from #7650 (sheba) and #7650 sheba comes from #7651 shaba! Both words are so closely interrelated that it is difficult, if not impossible, to separate the two. (Like trying to separate the Father and the Son?)

  Furthermore, we find in this dissertation that both of these words are also associated with a COVENANT! Remember the perpetual covenant concerning the seventh day Sabbath?

  Further still, the number seven is a witness! The Hebrew word for “witness” is edah, which is defined as; feminine of 5707 in its technical sense; testimony. #5707 is the masculine version, ed, which is defined as; contracted from 5749; concretely, a witness; abstractly, testimony; specifically, a recorder, i.e. prince. #5749 is the Hebrew word uwd, which is defined as; a primitive root; to duplicate or repeat; by implication, to protest, testify (as by reiteration); intensively, to encompass, restore (as a sort of reduplication).

  What a witness! The ultimate Hebrew root word for witness has to do with duplicating, repeating, restoring, etc.


   We are supposed to be living by the cycles that Yahweh ordained, not Caesar. The first cycle that we live by is the daily cycle. Yahweh established the daily cycle to be observed from sunset to sunset (approximately). Caesar changed it to midnight.

  The second cycle is the seven day weekly cycle that is ordained to end with the Sabbath. We are to count from the first day of the week to the seventh and then rest in accordance with Yahweh’s commandment on that seventh day. Caesar changed this cycle to begin a mystic count from day seven backward to day one and declared the day of Solis Invicti (the unconquered sun) to be the day of holy convocation and rest.

  The third cycle that Yahweh ordained is the lunar or monthly cycle. We are supposed to look for the new moon crescent and when it is sighted, begin the monthly count. The word for “month” comes directly from the word “moon” in the English, Greek and Hebrew languages. But here again, Caesar instituted his own monthly count apart from the moon cycles.

  Then there is the annual cycle, which is primarily determined by the moon, sun and stars. The new year, according to Yahweh’s calendar, is to begin with the new moon of Abib. Abib means green ears, which tells us that it occurs during the spring with the new moon closest to the equinox. (This is when the green ears of plants begin to shoot forth in a type of resurrection and/or birth.) Caesar changed it to take place in the dead of winter taking place on January 1st.

  This is quite interesting indeed! Caesar worshipped the sun as god. December 25th is appointed as the birthday of the unconquered sun (solis invicti). A Hebrew child was to be circumcised on the eighth day. January 1st is the eighth day from December 25th. This would be the day when the baby sun-god would have been circumcised.

  The month of Abib begins several important counts, which we need to focus on.


   The first count of the month of Abib has to do with the count to Passover. On the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover. Yahweh informed Moses, “And Yahweh spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening,” Ex. 12:1-6.

  The fourteenth day is two times seven! It was on the fourteenth day of the moon/month Abib that Israel slew the Passover lambs, which saved them from the death angel, while the Egyptian’s firstborn males, both men and animals, perished.

  We know that this took place in the month Abib because Yahweh again informed Moses, “And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying, Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine. And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yahweh brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten. This day came ye out in the month Abib,” Ex. 13:1-4.

  This Passover lamb was a forerunner and type of Yahshua our Passover for Paul writes, “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even the Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us,” 1 Cor. 5:7.

  Just as Caesar has changed the calendar from Yahweh’s to his own appointed calendar, he has also instituted his own form of Passover called Easter! Easter is derived from Ishtar of the Babylonians and her son/lover/husband Tammuz. Tammuz was a vegetation god who annually died and was resurrected. Most of the world follows after Caesar’s commands and not the commands of Yahweh. Therefore, they have been deceived to follow a false calendar and a false messiah! We will get into more detail on this later.


   On the fifteenth day of the first month, the day after the Passover lamb was slain, another count of seven began, “And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto Yahweh: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yahweh seven days: in the seventh day is an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein,” Lev. 23:6-8.

  This unleavened bread is a type of Yahshua the Messiah, the true bread from heaven who did no sin! Leaven is a type of sin. We become “unleavened” (cleansed of our sins) through the true Messiah Yahshua.

  Sin is the transgression of the law (1 Jn. 3:4). The law of Yahweh is based primarily on the Ten Commandments. To break the commandments in one point is to break them all, “If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all,” Jas. 2:8-10.

  The Apostle Peter writes, “For even hereunto were ye called: because the Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously,” 1 Pet. 2:21-23.

  Yahshua told the people of His day, “Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath Yahweh the Father sealed. Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of Elohim? Yahshua answered and said unto them, This is the work of Elohim, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. Then Yahshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of Elohim is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world…Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Yahshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him,” Jn. 6:27-33, 49-56.

  Yahshua is the true bread from heaven. We are commanded to eat unleavened bread for seven days. (There’s that number seven again, which stands for rest, witness, covenant, to swear, to complete, etc.) The first day is an annual holy day and the seventh day is an annual holy day. This means that it begins and ends in holiness. The final day of unleavened bread is the 21st day of the month or 3 x 7.

  Caesar led his followers into Carnival (Mardi Gras), Lent, Easter, bunny rabbits and Easter eggs. Once again, these are symbols of the false messiah, not the true Messiah Yahshua.


   During the days of unleavened bread another count of sevens begins. Anciently, the people were to bring what is called in the KJV English, a wavesheaf of firstfruits to be waved as an offering before Yahweh on the day after the Sabbath. (Lev. 23:9-17). The Hebrew would be omer reyshiyth. An omer is a measure while reyshiyth also means beginning.

  To “wave” has to do with vibrating or quivering. This typified the resurrected Messiah as the “firstfruits from the dead” (Col. 1:18). A dead body simply can’t move of itself, but when brought back to life, there would be a vibrating or quivering effect. Yahshua ascended before the Father Yahweh to be accepted as the “firstfruits from the dead” on the first day of the week (the day after the regular Sabbath) during the feast of unleavened bread. (Jn. 20:17)

  The offering of this omer reyshiyth (sheaf of firstfruits) began a count of seven times seven (7 x 7) weeks or seven times seven Sabbaths until the morrow or day after the seventh Sabbath. This day is commonly called the feast of “shavout” by Rabbinic Judaism, and the feast of Pentecost (count 50) by most New Testament believers.

  It was on this very day that the Holy Spirit was poured out on the New Testament Assembly raising up Yahshua’s spiritual bride (Acts 2). Fifty symbolizes jubilee, liberty, restoration, restitution, etc. The New Testament Assembly received the wondrous Spirit of liberty, the promise of jubilee, restoration and restitution at Yahweh’s appointed time in the future. Thus, we have seven times seven Sabbaths, that is, seven times seven periods of rest, plus one day, which yields liberty, jubilee, restoration and restitution.

  On this fiftieth day, the Aaronic priesthood was to bring forth two wave loaves baked with leaven. This witnesses the present state and condition of the New Testament Assembly. While we are given the firstfruits of the Spirit, an earnest of the promised inheritance to come (Eph. 1:10-14), the simple fact of the matter is that we must continue to live in this word with a “law of sin in our members.” (Ro. 7) We are still mortal and corruptible (1 Cor. 15:42-53).

  The New Testament Assembly was raised up to do a work of declaring the truth about Yahshua and His kingdom of rest, restoration, restitution to the world. That is the work that we must continue to undertake in this day and age until the glorious appearing of Yahshua the Messiah. This work was begun in the apostles and must be completed in this day and age before His coming.

  With the observance of Pentecost, the spring portion of the annual holy days is complete. There are three annual holy days which take place in the spring. The rest of the holy days take place in the fall.


   Abib begins another important countdown. In accordance with Yahweh’s calendar, we are to count six moons or months, which will bring us to the seventh new moon and/or month. Importantly, the seventh month contains the last four of seven annual holy days. This makes the seventh month a most important period of time.

  The very first day, new moon day of the seventh month, is the Feast of Trumpets, another annual holy day, the fourth annual high day. There is so much significance to this day that it simply can’t all be presented here in this dissertation. The blowing of trumpets signified many things to the Hebrews anciently. They were utilized to sound war, call an assembly, announce the coronation of a king, announce a wedding, etc.

  The Feast of Trumpets signifies the time when the kingdoms of this world will be overthrown and the kingdom of heaven will begin its rule. It also signifies the resurrection and gathering of the saints to Yahshua in Jerusalem, “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Yahshua died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Yahshua will Yahweh bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of Yahweh, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Sovereign shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Sovereign himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of Elohim: and the dead in the Messiah shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Sovereign in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Sovereign. Wherefore comfort one another with these words,” 1 Thes. 4:13-18.

  Again, Paul writes, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Elohim; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” 1 Cor. 15:50-55.

  This new moon day of the seventh month represents the end of this age and the beginning of another. Peter wrote that one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day to Yahweh (2 Pet. 3:8). Isn’t that interesting? The seven day week is a type of a seven thousand year period.

  The Feast of Trumpets is the fourth annual Holy Day. During creation week Yahweh brought forth the sun, moon and stars. The sun, moon and stars were utilized to represent Jacob, Leah and the twelve sons of Israel in Joseph’s dream (Gen. 37:9-10).

  In Revelation chapter twelve a woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet with a crown of twelve stars is revealed. Those who repent and are baptized in the name of Yahshua the Messiah are clothed with Him (Gal. 3:27; Ro. 13:14). This woman is the true representative of the true Israel (the twelve stars) who is clothed with Yahshua (typified by the sun); she is His bride (typified by the moon). In other words, Yahshua, the man, the husband, will be revealed with His bride, the assembly, and Israel (typified by twelve stars), the saved, on the Day of Trumpets! This truly is something to blow trumpets of joy about.

  The assembly, true Israel, will be resurrected (the dead), or changed (the living) and married to her Husband Yahshua on the Day of Trumpets. Yahshua will begin to make war against the kingdoms of this world on the Day of Trumpets. He will be crowned King of kings and Sovereign and sovereigns on this very day. The kingdom of heaven will begin its rule over the earth on this day.


   The Book of Revelation contains many important sevens in its content. It begins with Yahshua and the seven lamps with their seven messengers. Then in chapter five a scroll is brought forth, sealed with seven seals. The only One Who can strip off the seals is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, Who is also the Lamb as it had been slain. This Lamb has seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits.

  The seven seals are stripped off bringing forth each of their revealed plagues. The seventh seal consists of seven trumpet plagues to be poured out. It is at the sound of the seventh trumpet that the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of Yahweh and His Messiah (Anointed). It is at the seventh trump (the last trump) that the saints are resurrected and/or changed.

  The seventh trumpet also consists of seven vials of wrath which are to be poured out upon the earth, especially the beast and his worshippers.


   The fifth annual holy day also occurs within the period of the seventh month. The day of  atonement represents the day when Satan will be bound and cast alive into the abyss for a period of one thousand years (Rev. 20:1-3).

  It also represents the day of liberty and freedom. It is during the seventh month that another special count of sevens begins. The Israelites were to count six years and in the seventh year there would be a land Sabbath or rest (Lev. 25:1-7).

  Just as in the spring there was a count of seven Sabbaths or forty nine days, plus one for Pentecost, in the fall they were to count seven times seven years or forty nine years, plus one and they were to celebrate the Jubilee (Lev. 25:8-10).

  This fiftieth year was proclaimed to be the year of liberty. Every man was to be restored to his possession. In other words, if they had fallen on hard times and were forced to sell their property, or borrow money, etc., the fiftieth year was the year when the land was restored to the original owner and his family. All debts were cancelled.

  The year in which Yahshua returns will be a year of Jubilee. The disciples/apostles understood that Yahshua had come in order to bring about the conditions for the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Master, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth,” Acts 1:6-8.

  The resurrection and restoration of Israel to life from the grave is specifically prophesied in the book of Ezekiel chapter thirty seven. This is the time spoken of by the Apostle Peter in the book of Acts, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of Yahweh; And he shall send Yahshua the Messiah, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Yahweh hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began,” Acts 3:19-21.

  “Refreshing” is translated from the Greek word anapsuxis , which is defined as; a recovery of breath, i.e. (figuratively) revival. What is so amazing is that this event occurs in the seventh month, a type of the seventh millennium! It is represented by the fifth annual holy day. In the scheme of the spiritual significance of numbers, five is the number for grace!

  Please understand! The salvation of the whole world depended primarily upon the resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah. But the salvation of the whole world depends secondarily on the resurrection and restoration of the whole house of Israel. The Apostle Paul revealed, “Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, Yahweh hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? Yahweh forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles (non-Hebrews), for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches. And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if Yahweh spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of Yahweh: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for Yahweh is able to graff them in again. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away unrighteousness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of Yahweh are without repentance” Ro. 11:5-23.

  Do you really understand what Paul has written here? Yahweh purposely blinded and cast the houses of Israel away so that He might be able to extend His grace to the non-Hebrews. They were sacrificed for the good of the rest of the world and that sacrifice continues to this day.


   The next annual holy day that takes place during the seventh month, is the sixth holy day called the Feast of Tabernacles or Ingathering. It is another festival that takes place for seven days. The first day is a holy day, but the other days are regarded as common days, albeit they are part of the festival.

  This feast typifies the rule of the kingdom of heaven on the earth, “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Yahshua, and for the word of Yahweh, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with the Messiah a thousand years,” Rev. 20:4.

  This thousand years spoken of here in Revelation chapter twenty is Yahweh’s rest prophesied by the prophets, “The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more,” Isa. 2:1-4. (See also Micah 4:1-4).

  When he says that all nations shall “flow” unto it, the Hebrew word utilized is nahar, which is defined as; a primitive root; to sparkle, i.e. (figuratively) be cheerful; hence (from the sheen of a running stream) to flow, i.e. (figuratively) assemble. Isn’t it interesting that we have concocted a “United Nations” in today’s world in order to being about peace and rest? The “United Nations” is a counterfeit of that which is to come. The term “all nations” in Hebrew is kol goyim. This Hebrew term would be utilized for the term “United Nations” because that is what the supposed effort of the United Nations is, to unite all nations of the world into one peaceful, ruling body. The United Nations has failed, of course, because it is being administered by men who do not have the Spirit of Yahweh, neither is their leader Yahshua the Messiah. The United Nations is doomed to failure as has already been experienced.

  In the day of the rule of the Anointed (Messiah) Yahshua, there will be no more war. The nations of the world will be blessed. They will truly sparkle with cheerfulness, joy, peace and rest that has never been experienced since the Garden of Eden.

  Again, Isaiah writes, “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of Yahweh shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of Yahweh: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yahweh, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious,” Isa. 11:1-10.

  This is the seventh millennium, which is the time of refreshing spoken of by the Apostle Peter, “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of Yahweh; And he shall send Yahshua the Messiah, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Yahweh hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began,” Acts 3:19-21.

  While the “restitution” is portrayed by the day of Atonement, the times of refreshing has to do with the number seven, especially the seventh day Sabbath of rest, wherein the souls (nephesh-im) will be refreshed (naphash).


  Before this study is finalized, we must focus on the other seventh day, which was introduced by Constantine the Great, who was one of the primary heads of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire is the fourth kingdom of Daniel chapter two as well as the fourth beast of Daniel chapter seven. In both chapters, the fourth kingdom and beast, once it is raised up, continues in power and authority until the kingdom of heaven is established (See Dan. 2:34-35, 44-45; 7:9-14, 21-27).

  While all of the Roman kingdoms have been overcome and destroyed from time to time, the simple fact of the matter is that its successors simply go through a metamorphosis and the kingdom appears in another form. This was prophesied in Daniel chapter two verse forty, “And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.”

  In other words, the kingdom of iron is so strong that it breaks asunder all kingdoms with which it seeks to overpower, but it also will break in pieces and bruise. This has certainly been the history of the Roman Empire.

  Constantine the Great, the head of the Roman Empire, the fourth kingdom of Daniel two and the fourth beast of Daniel seven, feigned repentance, entered into the corrupted remnants of the New Testament Assembly, took over as its Pontifex Maximus (High Priest) and dictated a new seventh day, Sunday, the day of the unconquered sun.

  Constantine’s forerunner or type is found in the Macedonian/Greek Kingdom, in the rulers of the Seleucids and Ptolemies. Both kingdoms fought each other for supremacy. Antiochus Ephphanes entered Jerusalem, enforcing the Greek system and ways on the Hebrews who were residing in the land. He forbade Sabbath observance, circumcision, anything Hebrew.

  Here is what the book of Second Maccabees records, “Shortly afterwards, the king sent an old man from Athens to compel the Jews to abandon their ancestral customs and live no longer by the laws of [Yahweh]; and to profane the Temple in Jerusalem and dedicate it to Olympian Zeus, and that on Mount Gerizim to Zeus, patron of strangers, as the inhabitants had requested. The imposition of this evil was oppressive and altogether intolerable. The Temple was filled with reveling and debauchery by the pagans, who took their pleasure with prostitutes and had intercourse with women in the sacred precincts, introducing other indecencies besides. The altar of sacrifice was loaded with victims proscribed by laws as unclean. A man might neither keep the Sabbath nor observe the traditional feasts, nor so much as admit to being a Jew. People were driven by harsh compulsion to eat the sacrificial entrails at the monthly celebration of the king’s birthday; and when a feast of Dionysus occurred they were forced to wear ivy wreaths and walk in the Dionysiac procession. A decree was issued at the instance of the people of Ptolemais for the neighbouring Greek cities, enforcing the same conduct on the Jews there, obliging them to share in the sacrificial meals, and ordering the execution of those who would not voluntarily conform to Greek customs,” 6:1-9.

  Constantine, in the same manner, enforced Sunday worship, overthrew the commandments of Yahweh altogether, issued an edict that if any Hebrew writings were found in a person’s possession, that person was to be tortured to death and the documents destroyed, etc.

  Constantine’s primary god was Mithras whose birthday was December 25th, and whose special day of the week was Sunday. But he also gave honor to the Greek god Zeus by changing the name of the Savior from the Hebrew Yahshua to that of Hesus or Yesus. Constantine understood “dark sentences” (Dan. 8:23, which also means “to hide under a false appearance,” “to put on a false appearance,” “conceal facts, intentions, or feelings under some pretence).


   This author has been able to identify the little horn of Daniel chapter eight to be Constantine and his successors (his dynasty in the office of Augustus and Caesar/Kaiser/Czar/Tsar).

  It is interesting and important to note that the events in Daniel seven, eight and nine are successive for a purpose (which there is not room to go into in this treatise). Daniel nine has been misunderstood and misinterpreted by many.

  Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate,” Dan. 9:24-27.

  Notice the sevens of this prophecy. The Messiah the Prince comes and is cut off after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple. He comes and is cut off after seven weeks and sixty two weeks of years, or 69 weeks of years altogether.

  Then another prince comes who destroys the city and the sanctuary. This prince confirms a covenant with the people for one week. What does this mean?

  The prince who destroyed the city and the sanctuary was the Roman prince Titus who became Caesar and Augustus. One stood up in his place later, about 312 CE, who made a covenant of promise with the people. That prince was Constantine the Great who instituted his covenant week. Constantine counted backward from the seventh day Sabbath in order to come to the first day of the week, which instituted the covenant week of his supposedly unconquered sun god Mithras.


   Albert Pike, a 33rd degree Mason, reveals the true meanings of Sunday worship in his book, Morals and Dogma: “We learn from Celsus, in Origen; who says that the symbolical image of the passage among the Stars, used in the Mithraic Mysteries, was a ladder, reaching from earth to Heaven, divided into seven steps or stages, to each of which was a gate, and at the summit an eighth, that of the fixed stars. The first gate says Celsus, was that of Saturn, and of lead, by the heavy nature whereof his dull slow progress was symbolized. The second of tin, was that of Venus, symbolizing her soft splendor and easy flexibility. The third of brass, was that of Jupiter, emblem of his solidity and dry nature. The fourth of iron was that of Mercury, expressing his indefatigable activity and sagacity. The fifth of copper, was that of Mars, expressing his inequalities and variable nature. The sixth, of silver, was that of the Moon: and the seventh, of gold, that of the sun, This order is not the real order of these Planets; but a mysterious one, like that of the days of the week consecrated to them, commencing with Saturday, and retrograding to Sunday. It was dictated, Celsus says, of certain harmonic relations, those of the fourth.” (p. 414)

  To retrograde means, to go backward, to retire or retreat, inverse or reverse: said of order, going back or tending to go back to an earlier, especially worse condition, retrogressive, to become worse, to deteriorate, to degenerate.

  Constantine and the rest of the kings, rulers and leaders of the people truly have fulfilled and are fulfilling Psalms chapter two which says, “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh, and against His Anointed (Messiah), saying, ‘Let us break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from us’,” vv. 1-3.

  Notice it! The kings, rulers and the people take counsel AGAINST (in retrograde) Yahweh and His Messiah (Yahshua). They go against, in retrograde to, the established order of Yahweh, which is His commandments. One of those commandments is the seventh day Sabbath command. Another command is the annual feasts, which contain seven annual high days or holy days. The kings, rulers and leaders of the people are quite willing to go against Yahweh, because if they truly were obedient to Him, then they fear that their powers would be diminished. Therefore, they are quite willing to exercise the power of the deceptive serpent in order to keep the people under their power and authority. They promise their own covenant of salvation, which is, in reality, abomination, desolation, destruction.

  At this juncture, it is our duty to cry out to all who read this treatise to REPENT!!!! of walking in a way that is opposed and contrary to the direct commands of Yahweh. Turn and embrace His ways and you will receive His blessings.


   The seventh annual holy or high day has its own meaning during the seventh millennium. While it carries the distinction of being the seventh annual high day, it is also the eighth day in the count of the Feast of Tabernacles. The Feast of Tabernacles begins as a holy day on the fifteenth day of the seventh month. It was to be observed for seven days. The last six days of the Feast of tabernacles are common days in which work could be done. Thus, the seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles, unlike the Feast of Unleavened Bread, is not an annual high day.

  This day (the eighth) is the last high day of Yahweh’s annual calendar; the seventh annual high day. Remember the meanings of the number seven. It is the day that is spoken of in John 7:37-37, “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Yahshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because that Yahshua was not yet glorified.)”

  This day is the period of judgment spoken of in Rev 20:11-15. This is the final day of salvation in Yahweh’s plan. It is the day when the greatest preponderance of peoples who have ever lived will receive salvation coming under the covenant of Almighty Yahweh through Yahshua the Messiah. This is the period spoken of by the Prophet Joel, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of Yahweh come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of Yahweh shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as Yahweh hath said, and in the remnant whom Yahweh shall call,” 2:28-32.

  The book of Hebrews witnesses, “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. For when Yahweh made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein Yahweh, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for Yahweh to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Yahshua, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec,” 6:12-20.

  Do you now understand? In the beginning Yahweh sware by bringing in a seventh day of rest. His covenant and promise to His creation was and is that when it comes to chaos, confusion, destruction, that He will fulfill His promise by restoring His creation to its original purity. All things that offend will be purged. The creation will be cleansed by fire so that nothing impure will remain. His creation will be sustained by the power of His Word, which never fails! He has promised from the beginning and we will see the fulfillment of that promise at the end. Thus Yahweh, on this seventh annual holy day, will bring His whole creation under His covenant.

  It is at this time that another wondrous event will take place because He will bring forth a NEW HEAVENS AND NEW EARTH, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from Yahweh out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of Yahweh is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and Yahweh himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim. And Yahweh shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful,” Rev. 21:1-5.

  The number eight also typifies a NEW BEGINNING! Thus, the very last annual holy day is the seventh and last annual holy day, but it is also an eighth day because the sixth annual holy day, the first day of the feast of tabernacles, begins a seven day feast. This makes the Last Great Day an eighth day representing a new beginning and the seventh annual holy day to represent Yahweh’s promise to restore His creation. May that day come soon so that His whole creation may rejoice and sing of His wondrous power, His works and His salvation. Yahweh has sworn. He has sevened Himself. We can truly count on His promises. HalleluYah!!!
