Thankfully, “Jeremy” the ex-32nd degree Freemason has been well. We have not heard from him since last July. If you are not sure who that is, please refer to this link: https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2020/09/11/words-of-warning-from-ex-32nd-degree-freemason/. He has moved to another state in an area south of the Appalachians, and has been enjoying God’s provision, providence and life-changing power in his life. We praise the Lord for this, and are excited to finally hear from Mr. Jeremy again, for he indeed, is highly valued and very much prayed for.
In the video below more is confirmed concerning the dangers of drinking from the municipal tap water supply in cities and towns. Furthermore, he encourages the listeners to keep any prepping they’ve done a secret for their and their family’s safety. Dangerous days are ahead, and people are going to get desperate. After all, desperate people do crazy things, especially starving people.
Though he does not mention the “hope” of the rapture in this video, I know in the past he has stated that though he “hopes” the rapture will happen, he does not expect it. What he does expect are hard times, including persecution. This is why he prompts people to be physically prepared with food, ways of getting water and ways to purify water, books on using God’s creation for medicinal purposes, etc.
As for Holy Light Ministries, the hope of the rapture is very real and very immanent. That being said, being prepped for any type of natural disaster with some food and water is always wise. Nevertheless, regarding the very end of days in which we are living, Jesus did not teach us to prep, but rather, to trust. Jesus encouraged His disciples to not be consumed with their need for food, daily necessities, clothes, etc. like those who are without Him (Matthew 6:25-34; Luke 12:22-34). Instead, Jesus tells His followers to approach God in faith, praying “give us THIS DAY our DAILY bread” (Matthew 6; Luke 11 — the Lord’s Prayer) and makes it clear that we are not to worry about tomorrow in regards to anything. After all, if God takes care of the ravens and the flowers, will He not all the more take care of us who are His children? (Luke 12:24 and Job 38:41).
Furthermore, Jesus said that when believers see end times events taking place one right after the other that we are to “lift up our eyes for our redemption is drawing nigh” (Luke 21:28). He could have at that point said, “you all had better prep” or “you all need to lay up food and have ways to access water” or “make sure you have a grab bag with dried goods,” but He did not.
If perchance we do go through some hard times ahead just before He calls us home, let us remember this encouragement from Psalm 33 (also found in Psalm 37:19):
“18Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, 19To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.
20Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. 21For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. 22Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.”
Thus, it is wise to have some extra food on hand or even a water purification system, but we encourage everyone to remember what Jesus said in Matthew 6, “31“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” And most importantly, Luke 21, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”
Jesus is coming soon, and our blessed hope is in Him! (Titus 2:13)
It has been said time and again by Church leadership, specifically under the umbrella of the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation, also called Third Wave) that modern prophets are learning, and that even if their prophecies are incorrect this does not make them false prophets. And on top of this, these same leaders predict better days are coming for America. However, what does God say?
In Jeremiah 28 an interesting story unfolds. Before a group of people and priests, a prophet named Hananiah dramatically prophesied that God was going to break the Babylonian yoke of slavery off of the Jews. To make this more vivid, he placed a wooden yoke on Jeremiah, then took it off him and broke it. The prophet Jeremiah agreed, saying, “Amen: the LORD do so: the LORD perform thy words which thou hast prophesied,” (Jeremiah 28:6). However, he also added, “Nevertheless, hear thou now this word…the prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him,” (Jeremiah 28:7a, 9). Jeremiah agreed with him, but gave the disclaimer that everyone would know if the prophecy was true if it came to pass. Thus, he referred them back to Deuteronomy 18:20-22 which states, “And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?” (Deuteronomy 18:21). And God answers that if the prophecy does not come to pass, then the prophet has “spoken presumptuously” and the people are not to respect that person as a prophet. First John 4:1 agrees with this when it says that we are “not to believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” Many false prophets. Many.
The story in Jeremiah then takes a twist. God speaks to Jeremiah at home, telling him to go back to Hananiah to tell him the yoke is made of unbreakable iron. “Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now Hananiah, the LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust a lie…this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the LORD. And Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month” (Jeremiah 28:15,16b-17).
So, let’s get this straight. Hananiah had thought he was right. “I am sure this prophetic word was well received by the people. It brought edification and comfort. It promised blessings and restoration. It spoke kindly to those who had suffered loss and assured the fulfillment of God’s promises. Most likely the people were praising God and some even weeping for joy” (John Bevere, “Thus Saith The Lord?” pg. 100). It did not seem even slightly false…………but…….. it was NOT a word from the Lord!
Not only was it NOT a word from the Lord, it taught the people to rebel against what God had said. For in Jeremiah 27, Jeremiah prophesied that the Jews were to serve Babylon and not resist. But they did not want to hear that! That certainly could not be a word from the Lord! After all, why would God say that they were to submit to a tyrant? Why would God want His people enslaved to Babylon? But, when Hananiah spoke, certainly that was the word of the Lord for it promised good and not evil, liberty and not captivity! The Jews were God’s chosen people, not slaves. The Messiah was to come through them, specifically through the line of Judah. God surely must be sending this deliverance and not chains. Thus, Hananiah’s arrogant words led the people to believe a lie and to rebel against what God really had said.
But then, perhaps, Hananiah had not been prophesying long. Couldn’t he have just gotten it wrong and yet not be a false prophet? He meant well, right? Perhaps he and all those dreamers just needed to be a part of a “school of the prophets.”
Here then is the real question. Is prophecy of the Holy Spirit or of man? If it is of man, then error is quite possible. But, if it is truly of the Spirit, then error is out of the question. God does not make mistakes.
It says in 1 Corinthians 12 that prophecy is amanifestation of the Holy Spirit. This means, that it is the Holy Spirit speaking through the person that is prophesying. Can the Holy Spirit get it wrong????? “The Holy Spirit is not in training, and He only speaks the true and the pure. The error comes when we speak when He has not or we are silent when He is speaking…Samuel, when he was only a boy, gave a pure and fully accurate prophecy his first time (1 Samuel 3:11-19). He did not have to “grow in the gift”.” (John Bevere, Thus Saith The Lord? pg 98).
The Holy Spirit DOES NOT EVER GET IT WRONG!
“In the latter days you will understand it clearly. I did not send the prophets, yet they ran; I did not speak to them, yet they prophesied” (Jeremiah 23:20b-21). God goes on to say that He is “against those who prophesy lying dreams…and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them” (Jeremiah 23:32). Truly, “They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word,” Ezekiel 13:6. Wrong prophecy is divination, plain and simple. “Simply put, these prophets speak their own oracles as though they were God’s. Yet the words are not God’s but their own. This is another way of describing the imitation or counterfeit of the true prophetic word of the Lord” (John Bevere, Thus Saith The Lord? pg 90).
The Hananiahs, false prophets of a false hope, are not gone, but are living and well today. And there are many of them. There are modern day Hananiahs who prophesy with great fervor and emotion, and more often than not they are wrong. Dead wrong. Yet they have no fear of death, for they say that God does not judge them based on the O.T. any longer.
But….. God does not change, and He honors His word above His name (Psalm 138:2). Thus, “Concerning the prophets: My heart is broken within me; all my bones shake…because of the LORD and because of His holy words. For the land is full of adulterers; because of the curse the land mourns, and the pastures of the wilderness are dried up…both prophet and priest are ungodly; even in my house I have found their evil, declares the LORD. Therefore their way shall be to them like slippery paths in the darkness, into which they shall be driven and fall, for I will bring disaster upon them in the year of their punishment, declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 23:9a,c 10a, 11-12).
And indeed, the nations of the world have rejected God, and His judgment is descending like a tidal wave, even upon America. The rot goes deep. The filth is rampant. The degradation horrific. For it is not merely among the unsaved, but also the saved. But few see it. According to the film “Before the Wrath” only 18% of western Christians believe that Jesus will come back in their lifetime, and only 15% believe in core Christian tenants. The Laodicean church of the west thinks they have need of nothing, that they are safe — but they are not safe and must repent. “17Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.” (Revelation 3)
For over 40 years all together the prophet Jeremiah prophesied, warning the people that Babylon would invade, kill, and take them captive, and then continued to prophesy after the invasion, calling the people to live peaceably under Babylonian captivity. But, ever step of the way the Jews rejected God’s word to them — first to repent and then to live blessed lives while in captivity. They firmly believed those who prophesied good things, that Judah would be made great again, that better times were coming, and that God would preserve them because of the Temple (Jeremiah 7:4). They were after all, God’s people. He would not abandon them. But God told them point blank, “…I do unto this house, which is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh,” (Jeremiah 7:14).
So, what happened to Shiloh? Psalm 78 tells us. “56Yet they tested and provoked the Most High God, And did not keep His testimonies,57But turned back and acted unfaithfully like their fathers; They were turned aside like a deceitful bow.58For they provoked Him to anger with their high places, And moved Him to jealousy with their carved images.59When God heard this, He was furious, And greatly abhorred Israel,60So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh,The tent He had placed among men,61And delivered His strength into captivity,And His glory into the enemy’s hand.62He also gave His people over to the sword,And was furious with His inheritance.63The fire consumed their young men, And their maidens were not given in marriage.64Their priests fell by the sword, And their widows made no lamentation.” And 1 Samuel 4 adds that 30,000 (vs 10) plus 4,000 (vs 2) died that day, including Eli’s sons, and the ark of the covenant was taken by the Philistines (vs 11).
What had God’s people done to warrant this? According to Jeremiah 7, they had oppressed the orphan, stranger, and widow, been unjust to one another, shed innocent blood, burned incense to Baal and followed after other gods, were a den of robbers, murders and adulterers, and felt they were justified in doing so because God’s Temple was in their midst.
Do you think that the Church is any different today? Do you think that idolatry is not rampant simply because we do not have idols made out of wood and covered with gold or silver? Are we not the most litigious society in the history of the world, dragging one another to court constantly? Are not the defenseless and poor oppressed? And what shall we say about the greed of both the poor and the rich, for no one is ever satisfied? Indeed, was not Baal the god of prosperity? And what of adultery? How many have divorced and remarried not taking into account what both Jesus and the Apostle Paul stated regarding this matter? What about sexual immorality, from couples having sex before marriage, to those living together before marriage, pornography, watching movies with sex scenes and/or nudity while excusing it by calling it art or it’s just what Hollywood produces, and the list goes on and on? And are not the blood of the innocent shed daily in our cities and towns, even in the name of scientific research and vaccines — and most of us have had one vaccine or another that has aborted fetal tissue in it? And still others have voted for and elected politicians who defended killing babies without even blinking an eye.
And while the Titanic of America sinks into the frigid, icy ocean, Christians continue planning their vacations and job promotions or retirement, and hopes for tomorrow. Like Judah, they are in denial, and fully persuaded by an indomitable hopefulness that America will be spared God’s judgment, that somehow our grave evil will be overlooked because of the goodness of our past. But Shiloh was not spared. Judah was not spared.
As the darkness deepens, the false prophets of the NAR prophesy a false hope to the cancer ridden, dying nation of America are trusting “…in lying words, that cannot profit,” (Jeremiah 7:8). Just as Jeremiah spoke boldly to a his own dying nation of believers who did not want to hear such hard truth, even so American Christians do not want to hear that this nation once “under God” is falling under His judgment in their lifetime. The Constitution has already fallen, and everything else is about to fall: the economy, the American dream, the glory of America . . . And judgment starts first at the Lord’s sanctuary (Ezekiel 9:6).
Jesus is coming soon. It is time to wake up. It is time to repent. it is time to pray. It is time to be ready.
This past Sunday was Pentecost Sunday. It seems these days that too few churches even mention the name or even come close to celebrating it. But the day, or rather two days of Pentecost, are incredibly special and underappreciated. It ought to be observed by every church the world over, even as Christmas and Resurrection Sunday are. After all, it is the day that God sent His Spirit to empower believers for the propagation of the Gospel. It is the day that the new covenant was enacted publicly, and the Church was born. Without it, we would not be here.
Remember, God has ordained holidays, and His holidays were performed as dress rehearsals, foreshadows and pictures of His promises yet to be fulfilled. He desired them to be celebrated year after year to prepare the people for their final culmination in Christ. Four of them have been fulfilled. Passover (Jesus was our spotless, sacrificial Lamb), Unleavened Bread (Jesus was buried as one without sin), First Fruits (Jesus was resurrected and promises resurrection to all who believe in Him), and Pentecost (the birthday of the Church).
So, when was the first Pentecost? Did it all begin with the 120 who were gathered in the upper room in Acts 1 and 2? No. This was not the first Pentecost. The first Pentecost, also known as Shavuot, was initially observed three months following the exodus from Egypt. It is called the feast of “weeks” because it comes seven weeks after God’s holy feast of First Fruits, now called Resurrection Sunday. So, seven weeks after the Hebrews crossed the Red Sea, they encamped at Sinai where the first Pentecost unfolded.
The First Pentecost
Exodus 19:1, 16-20 relates the first Pentecost story:
“In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai… And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.20 And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.”
God Came Down
In this incredible scene, God came down to meet the people. In the verses we did not read, God told them to get washed up to meet Him. And so, for three days they prepared for God’s arrival. Take note of the details we just read. It happened in the morning. There was a loud noise called the “voice of the trumpet,” which was God’s voice, for it has been noted in other parts of Scripture that God’s voice is like trumpet (1 Thessalonians 4:16; Revelation 1:10). And there was fire, smoke, thunder and lightning. It was so amazing that the people, including Moses, trembled at the sights and sounds and feelings. It has been said by several sources, that God with His trumpet voice, spoke forth the law into seventy languages. Then over the course of forty days and in the presence of Moses alone, He wrote the law on stone with His own finger (Exodus 31:18).
But, why did God come down on Mt. Sinai? He came to initiate the Hebrews as a nation and as the members of a covenant. Now, a covenant always involves blood that essentially seals the deal. In Hebrew the word covenant comes from a root word meaning “to cut,” for there was the cutting of an animal and the shedding of blood sealed the deal. Without the blood there was no covenant.
And so, the LORD presented the covenant to them, and they accepted, thus becoming His covenant people, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation (Exodus 19:5-6; 24:3,7). “And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning these words…” (Exodus 24:8). The Hebrews were initiated as God’s covenant nation on the day of first Pentecost at Mount Sinai.
The Ascension and the Promised Return
In Acts 1 ten days before Pentecost commenced, we read that Jesus had just ascended into heaven. “9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.” In this we find our eternal hope of Christ’s promised return. To this we cling when all looks bleak, the color of the world dims from gray to black, disasters increase and both world wars and spiritual wars insatiably spread and concerns for our families overwhelm our hearts and minds. Jesus is coming back! Even as He promised to come, He has promised to return. Even as He ascended up into the clouds forty days after His resurrection, He will come back with the clouds of heaven.
In the Meantime…
In the meantime, Jesus knew exactly what, or shall I say Who, we would need. For until that awesome hoped for day, He has promised to empower us with the baptism of the Holy Spirit. In Acts 1 we read, “4 And, being assembled together with them, [Jesus] commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.8…ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost 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.12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem… These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren… (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)…”
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine. But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Exodus 19 and Acts 2
Just as in Exodus 19 God came down in the morning to initiate the Hebrews to His covenant and nationhood, even so in Acts 2 Peter confirms that it was 9:00am in the morning when God came down again. Just as in Exodus 19 there were loud noises of thunder, even the trumpet of God, in Acts 2 there also was the loud sound of a mighty, rushing wind. Even as there was much fire upon Mount Sinai, in Acts 2 the Holy Spirit descended in what appeared to be tongues of fire. As some scholars believe that God on that first Pentecost spoke forth the law into the 70 languages of the world, even so the Holy Spirit in Acts 2 declared the wonders of God in the languages of the world through the believers who had tarried in Jerusalem. And that day, God fulfilled His promise by writing His word upon the hearts of those who believed instead of on tablets of stone (2 Corinthians 3:3). Even as the Hebrews had been brought into a covenant with God and were sprinkled with the blood of sacrificial animals, Acts 2 saw the ceremony of a new covenant in Christ’s blood brought to the believers, forming and empowering them as a holy nation. Though Acts 2 was not the first Pentecost it was the incredible fulfillment of what God had promised for it brought about an interminable and indomitable Pentecost.
After all, the first Pentecost at Sinai was but a foreshadowing of a better covenant through the shed blood of the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the initiation of Christians as a holy nation. As it says in 1 Peter 2:9-10, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”
And so that remarkable day of Pentecost God brought to pass what He had always intended. Fifty days after Jesus’ resurrection, the rushing wind of the Most High God swept through that room as the Holy Spirit baptised the believers with tongues of fire as they were immersed into a new covenant of Christ’s holy blood. They were made a new nation of priests and kings empowered here as ambassadors, spokespersons of the heavenly kingdom and of it’s eternal, almighty King.
While we await the day of Christ’s return, He has promised to empower us with His Holy Spirit of Truth (John 14:15-31 and Acts 1). Jesus says in John 7:38-39, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)”
Today Jesus is glorified and is seated at the right hand of the Father on high, and believers are still promised this empowering of the Holy Spirit of the Living God, and true sign and seal of the new covenant established in Christ’s blood.
We conclude today with Hebrews 12:18-24.
18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest, 19 and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore. 20 (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.” 21 And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”) 22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels, 23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. 25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.”
As we remember Pentecost, let us also live in Pentecost. Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Mark Biltz, “The Feasts of Israel,” DVD series. Note: Mark Biltz has recently come under the influence of Yitzhak Shapira who says he is a Messianic Jew, but is really a Kabbalist in disguise and a member of the Chabad Lubavitch sect of Judaism. Though he claims conversion, there are terms and phrases that he uses that should not only give one pause but give one reason to distrust him. Others are also being deceived by Shapira, such as Jonathan Bernis of Jewish Voice. Mark Biltz produced this video on the feasts of Israel before his association with Shapira. And I also must say that are elements within the video that are based in rabbinic tradition, and must be weighed heavily with Scripture. I do not take everything Biltz says at face value, and I encourage everyone to be good Bereans.
