“It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.” George Washington
“And when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself in a book a copy of this law, approved by the Levitical priests. And it shall be with him, and he shall read in it all the days of his life, that he may learn to reverence the Lord his God by keeping all the words of this law and these statutes, and doing them, that his heart may not be lifted up above his brothers, and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, either to the right hand or to the left, so that he may continue long in his kingdom, he and his children, in Israel.” Deuteronomy 17:18-20
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” King of kings [ Matthew 5:17-20 ]
One of the most fascinating things about the entire plan of redemption that has been unfolding throughout history is the truth that YHWH revealed many of the elements of His Kingdom plan to our patriarchs, for instance, the Feasts of the Lord that were given to Moses, with specific instructions for their celebration by the Hebrews, as a foreshadowing of the development of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. They are part of the Kingdom Covenants. The festivals, originated from YHWH [ unincarnated YH[S]WH, ] were embedded into the culture of the Israeli Kingdom, the Firstborn Nation. The Spring Feasts [ Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Pentecost ] were fulfilled by YHSWH, the King of kings, at His First Coming [ incarnation, death, burial, resurrection, ascensions. ] The Fall Feasts [ Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles ] will be fulfilled, literally, in the future, as the fractal time pattern Sabbath [ “So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of YHWH, …” Hebrews 4:9 ].
The earlier Jewish believers in YH[S]WH [ our Eternal King, the Quintessential Jew, Son of David, David’s Father, blessed is He, ] along with the Gentiles who were being grafted into the Kingdom’s redemptive plan, for the first 200 to 300 years, celebrated the events of Messiah’s First Coming within the framework of the Feasts of the Lord. Part of the early believers in Messiah began to distance themselves from the Hebrew roots as early as AD 70, at the fall of Jerusalem. The 4th Century AD marked the most distinct departure of the “church” from everything related to the Jews.
Unfortunately, under the Roman Emperor Constantine, the Roman Church moved toward becoming wholly Gentile, substituting the Jewish elements and biblical understanding based on Jewish construct with pagan practices, human misinterpretation of the Sacred Texts and reality based on fabricated allegories and mere rationalization, disconnected from the Root, Truth and Light. This contributed to Anti-Semitism, never advocated by the earlier believers in YH[S]WH [ Romans 11 ] who had a clear understanding that the call of the Isaachians [ Judah and Israel ] are irrevocable, eternal. They are central to Yeshua’s development of the Sacred Center, redemptive plan, [ “I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel … It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” Jesus, The Quintessential Jew ] Although undergoing tough discipline by the Creator and Ruler, beloved Sons disciplined by the Father and King, all Covenanted Israel will be saved and fulfill their specific Kingdom Destiny. “They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption to sonship, the divine glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple worship, and the promises.” Romans 9:4
As with the celebration of the birth of Messiah, the Roman Catholic Church, in ignorance or intentionally, erred and misled many in regards to the truth about the events of the Crucifixion, Burial, Resurrection of Yeshua HaMashia [ Jesus the Messiah, the King of Israel, King of all Nations ], building and teaching untruthful traditions mixed with paganism, disconnected from the commandments of our Creator and King.
“‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men [ mere human ideas ].’ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!” Yeshua | Mark 7 ESV
I am not stating that those who believe in Yeshua [ Jesus ] and are still lost practicing false traditions won’t be saved. I do not believe that salvation hangs in the balance of the works of the law. As with Abraham, he believed in God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness, but the leadership and participation on the legitimate activity of building the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth is contingent on keeping YHWH’s charge, commandments, statutes, laws [ Genesis 26:4-5 ]. Those who trust in Yeshua [ Jesus ] but are not building on the True Foundation, Evolving Living Torah, will be saved “… but as if through the flames.” [ 1 Corinthians 3:15 ]
One of the great mistakes many have made is to misunderstand the truth that “The Eternal King Is Our Righteousness” [ Jeremiah 23; 33 ], as the Messiah will be called after the people of the Kingdom [ Ekklesia, Church, meant as the gathering of the Israelites, True Kingdom of Israel, ] will finally come to the full understanding of this truth and reality. YHSWH’s righteousness is what gives the people of the Kingdom a righteousness superior to the attempt to become righteous through the works of the law, or through altered religious teachings and practices [ e.g. the leaven of the Pharisees, Roman Catholicism’s distorted elements with salvation through false works, etc. ] Sonship can’t be earned, and the practices that develop the maturity of the Sons of the Kingdom, in reference to the Kingdom, they have to be what’s been given and are revealed by YHWH, not mere human teachings, ideas, traditions, practices, … “New” true revelation pertaining to the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, received after the TaNaK, has to be congruent with the foundation. Elements rooted on false ideas, fanaticism, mere rationalism, … such as Replacement Theology, are not in harmony with the foundational elements revealed by the Creator to our patriarchs.
We must correct the adulteration of the Biblical truths and restore all the authentic elements of the Kingdom that is rooted in and was originated from our Eternal Creator [ Father ] and King [ Ruler ]. The Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday tradition, bad math mixed with paganism, is one of the lies which must be replaced with the original pattern revealed to us by YHWH.
As with many other elements, including and most importantly, the Centrality of the Kingdom [ Matthew 13 ], Israeli Nations influenced by the distortions and deviations crystallized and spread throughout the world by the Roman Catholic Church, and churches derived from the “mother church,” have been celebrating the Crucifixion, Burial, Resurrection of Yeshua, on altered dates which do not reflect the truth. It doesn’t even amount to the three days and three nights Jesus promised as a sign: “… For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew 12:39-40
Joseph Lenard has done an excellent research on the details of the Crucifixion, Burial, Resurrection, Ascensions of Messiah, and has compiled a week chronology that is consistent with the actual account of the development of the events recorded in the Scriptures, in harmony with the fractal pattern of the Mosaic Passover given by YHWH HimSelf, with the astronomical signs displayed during the Passion Week, with YHWH’s own words revealed to the patriarchs, with YH[S]WH’s own words spoken and recorded after His incarnation, etc. Below is the chronology extracted from Joseph Lenard’s research. More details can be found and contemplated in his writings “Mysteries of Jesus’ Life Revealed—His Birth, Death, Resurrection, and Ascensions.”
Joseph Lenard was very through on his research, revealing even the details of why our resurrected Eternal King said “Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father …”, at a later point he said to Thomas “… Touch me, and see …”, and the connection between the first ascension and the Feast of First Fruits, which was before His second ascension 39 days following His resurrection.
His research is as interesting, important and enlightening, as the research done by Professor Haim Shore, from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, showing scientific metadata embedded into ancient Hebrew words; Yair Davidiy’s research on the “Israelite Origins of The Western People” and the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel; the work of George N. H. Peters on the Theocratic Kingdom; and the works of many other individuals whom, surprisingly, have made more progress on revealing important aspects of the development of the Great Plan, restoring the Kingdom’s elements and truths, than the establishments and institutions which claim to be the priests of the King of kings but which, instead, have been crystallizing deception, spreading false knowledge, keeping people in bondage to false centers of patterns, holding back on progress to advance and to restore the Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven, not illuminating with the light of true knowledge.
The individuals who’ve been advancing many elements of the development of the Kingdom are good examples of what Manasseh’s founding fathers intended when attempting to create a space and climate of freedom of religion, thought and expression, to be used responsibly to advance The Cause and to create the Order of Heaven on Earth. Freedom to increase the Light, to restore the Truth, Tikkun Olam [ Hebrew: תִּיקוּן עוֹלָם ], to repair the world, to restore Creation, not to add to the darkness that is to be eliminated from our nations and world, “Otherwise, they will teach you to follow all the detestable things they do …” Deuteronomy 20:18
“… truth will prevail over fanaticism, and the genuine doctrines of Jesus, so long perverted by His pseudo-priests, will again be restored to their original purity. This reformation will advance with the other improvements of the human mind but too late for me to witness it.” Thomas Jefferson

We must undo the adulteration, deviations, distortions, inherited from unenlightened and untruthful governments/priesthoods [ leadership ] and restore the genuine and authentic elements of the True Kingdom, in order to lead this and future generations on the Kingdom Path of Righteousness, and in keeping the Kingdom Covenants, as we continue to make progress in government, military, priesthood, sciences, technology, health, commerce, … all the interconnected areas meant to be seen as part of a whole — not disconnected from the Eternal Kingdom, nor adversely and wrongly divided within themselves and as closed centers of patterns, [ + v – ] as bipolar government, for instance, — for the continuation of the process of completing and perfecting the world originally intended to be led by the willing Covenanted Isaachians, chosen by YHWH, in unison with the Eternal Kingdom, according to the Will of Heaven. The Kingdom on Earth was meant to evolve, in biblical language, to go from “glory to glory,” as said by YHWH about the evolution of the Sacred Center, His footstool, “The future glory [ greatness ] of this Temple will be greater than its past glory [ greatness ], says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.”
“… They did not keep God’s Covenant, but refused to walk according to His instruction [ TaNaK ] …” Psalm 78:10
While Judah and the Israelites associated with him have been very slow on recognizing and acknowledging the Eternal King, not without discipline and real consequences to the Kingdom on Earth, the other Israeli Nations were quick to abandon the True Kingdom, to reject the light of true knowledge, to replace Kingdom truths with lies, to embrace false elements inserted by the enemy to mislead multitudes [ Matthew 13:28 ], also, not without real consequences to the development of the Israeli Nations, the leadership of the Kingdom on Earth.
“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on Him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.” Zechariah 12:10 “On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.” Zechariah 13:1
“And the house of Israel shall no more defile my Holy Name, neither they, nor their kings, … They have defiled my Holy Name by their abominations that they have committed, so I have consumed them in my anger. Now let them put away their whoring and the dead bodies of their kings far from me, and I will dwell in their midst forever. …” Ezekiel 43; Hosea 8:4
“I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed through the countries. In accordance with their ways and their deeds I judged them. But when they came to the nations, wherever they came, they profaned my Holy Name, in that people said of them, ‘These are the people of the LORD, and yet they had to go out of His land.’ But I had concern for my Holy Name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations to which they came. … “Thus says the Lord GOD: On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will cause the cities to be inhabited, and the waste places shall be rebuilt. And the land that was desolate shall be tilled, instead of being the desolation that it was in the sight of all who passed by. And they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ Then the nations that are left all around you shall know that I am the LORD; I have rebuilt the ruined places and replanted that which was desolate. I am the LORD; I have spoken, and I will do it.” Ezekiel 36
“… And I will make them one [ Kingdom ] on Earth, on the mountains of Israel. … My servant David shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall walk in my rules and be careful to obey my statutes. They shall dwell in the land that I gave to my servant Jacob, where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children’s children shall dwell there forever, and David my servant shall be their prince forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will set them in their land and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in their midst forever. My dwelling place shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies Israel, when my sanctuary is in their midst forever.”” Ezekiel 37
When the government of the Israeli Nations and other nations walk contrary to the Eternal Kingdom, the realms experience the negative consequences. When we move in accordance with the Divine Will and Plan, for instance, Manasseh’s involvement on the World War II to liberate the European Jews and to rebuild European Nations after destruction, a nation experiences blessings as consequence [ Jeremiah 18:6-10 ]. We ought to raise up a generation of leaders who can take the contingent path forward instead of conforming to the pattern of the continual government/leadership decline [ + v – ] as revealed to Daniel and attested by the history of nations, and start consciously restoring the Kingdom on Earth according to the patterns and Will of Heaven, as we anticipate the Second Coming of the Eternal King.
Let’s make Kingdom progress — On Earth as it is in Heaven.
