Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s,

Happy New Year 2021, that is the Gregorian New Year


Today is January 2, 2021 in the 21th century (peculiar date 1/2/2021)  J

January - Janus's month

Middle English Januarie
Latin Januarius "of Janus"
Latin Janu(s) "Janus" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Latin Januarius mensis "month of Janus"



Janus is the Roman god of gates and doorways, depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions. His festival month is January. Januarius had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.


Yehovah God has His own calendar, which is deleted from the world 


We are now in the tenth month called Teveth or Tevet, day 17

Esth.2 [16] So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.  טֵבֵת

Part 2

Some things we have learned and observe over these 19 years (in no certain order):


We realized more this year that “few there be that find it, the truth- that want to change


We met many people with strange doctrines to avoid


Amazingly, we learned how that “one bible” can have millions of false doctrines and mistranslation that people sadly believe and follow


We started reading the Scriptures for the beginning, Genesis to the end, Revelation

Learned more about make of holidays… Chanukah, Xmas, Halloween, others etc…

Went over Yehovah Holy Days VS Pagan Holidays

How to understand the letters with a Torah mindset

Went over:

TNK is an acronym for:

T = Torah (law, teachings) - first 5 books of Moses

N = Navieem or prophets (pl. sounds like - Na vi eem)

K = Ke'tuvim or writings (psalms etc.)

At this point, there were neither gospels nor letters.

Not to add or diminish from the Word

More on righteous judgment (God’s Judgment)

The Sabbath - the 7th day - the 4th Commandment

Watch for the New Moon on the 29th or 30th day

God’s calendar - Learned right names of the months

Observed Judaism’s wrong made-up names for some months

The 3 feasts and appointed days (being together in the congregation) not 7 feasts

Things Not To Do At A Passover Seder

What to do and not do on the feast of unleavened bread and feast of tabernacles

The 7 Sabbaths in the 3 feasts and appointed days

More on clean and unclean – food, people, places…

All unclean things out of your house (like some pets…)

Food Laws, other laws

More on being Holy – in talk, dress, actions…

More on Sin – ignorant and presumptuous (on purpose)

Beware of people that sin presumptuously and then say they have a relationship with God, God will forgive them, God understands. Wrong!

No sin, spot, or blemish, wrinkle…

More about being Perfect

More about being of one mind, on accord…

No rapture

Who was taken first? The tares first, the children of the wicked one

Messiah is coming in the clouds, not returning to build the third temple

No reincarnation, die once, then the Judgment

More on all of Paul and others, their lists of things not to do…

World is not ending until we see the Anti-Messiah in the third Temple proclaiming himself as god

Stand only on the Scriptures, no other book

Many new false bible versions

Verified the King James Version Bible is best English accurate bible translation with the least errors

We follow no books of Enoch, Jasher, no Talmud, or any Judaism book, no Pseudo Christianity, Protestant or Catholic books…

Call no person Rabbi, Messianic Rabbi or Holy Father

Messiah is the Word of God, which is God, made flesh (of Israel)

No more animal sacrifices for sin

More depth on all the commandments, statues etc…

More on the difference between nice people and holy people

Watch for:


The false image of Love

False imaginations

False ministers, brothers, sisters, any people

False feelings and emotions

False doctrines, bibles, religions, philosophies…

False science

Pseudo Jewish philosophies

False news

False data, false histories, false pagan holidays, false drugs, prescriptions, remedies, false situations, false trinkets, propaganda, misinformation, disinformation, forged documents, fabrications, and misdirection, which are all lies!

Beware of People that are kinder than God, more loving than God, more forgiving than God more merciful than God, and so on.


Many say they are the New Testament church – wrong term


They are wrong - Acts were all Jews for every country to keep the Feast of weeks - Pentecost

Acts 2 [5] And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven…


Many say - in the New Testament / Covenant? Wrong term again 

The New Testament is not a set of books - The old and new testaments are not two “dividing” books, not two Gods, not two understandings.

Let’s read:

Heb. 8:8 -12: For finding fault with them, he says, Behold, the days come, says Yehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, says Yehovah.

Who was the New Testament / Covenant given to, GentilesNo

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yehovah; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.


This all comes from:


Jer. 31:31-37: Behold, the days come, says Yehovah, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, says YehovahBut this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says Yehovah, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor and every man his brother, saying, Know Yehovah: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says Yehovah; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Thus says Yehovah, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; Yehovah of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, says Yehovah, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever.



Pseudo gentile churches replaced Israel? Never!


Thus says YehovahIf heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says Yehovah.



Many use the wrong term - In the Old Testament / Covenant?


The Old Testament is not a set of books - Wrong term


The Old Testament or covenant pertains to the Levitical priesthood (part of the Law) and all its sacrifices (animal blood…), priest’s services and temple services, etc...


Exod.24 [8] And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which Yehovah hath made with you concerning all these words.



Many use the wrong term, the Renewed Covenant… - Not renewed, but new!

Let’s learn some Hebrew and then some Hebrew grammar please

Renew is not New. 


The word “renew” is a verb and the word “new” is an adjective.


In Hebrew, the adjective agree with the noun in genderבְּרִית חֲדָשָׁה ־    feminine form

בְּרִית  covenant is a feminine noun and needs a feminine verb


Many people use the word Christian today (which they are not)

What was the original meaning of the word Christian?

Remember, there was neither Protestants before 1500 AD nor Catholics at the time of Messiah Yeshua.


Messiah - מְשִיחַ


The English word Christian below means Messiah followers, not Protestants or Catholics.


Messiah followers: מְשִׁיחִי מְשִׁיחִיִּים


3 verses for the word Christian:


Acts 11[26] …and when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.


Acts 26 28] Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost you persuade me to be a Christian.


1Pet.4 [16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.


Some say the name Jesus means Zeus and is pagan?  Wrong!

The name Jesus does not come from the name Zeus. These two words do not even sound alike.


etymology: The origin and historical development of a linguistic form as shown by determining its basic elements, earliest known use, and changes in form and meaning, tracing its transmission from one language to another, identifying its cognates in other languages, and reconstructing its ancestral form where possible


As you can see, there is no etymological relationship between these two words.


It is clearly seen that different letters are used in the spelling of these two words.


Here are the English, Greek, then English transliterations and sounds


Yeshua -  Ιησους - Iisous pronounced ee-ay-sooce


Zeus -  Ζευς - Zeys pronounced Zeys


I suggest you learn some Greek before you make this foolish argument



The words The (the) LORD / GOD - should be YHVH / Yehovah, sometimes Yah


Many say Yeshua changed all things?

Yeshua said - Matt.5 [17] Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

[18] For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.


Some say, so I will be least in the kingdom of heaven if I sin, who cares?

Matt.5 19Whosoever therefore shall "break" one of these least commandments, and shall "teach" men so, he shall be "called" the least "in”, “(by them in) the kingdom of heaven ": but "whosoever shall do (commandments) and teach them", the same shall be "called great in (by them in) the kingdom of heaven. 

Scripture tells us NO sin shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven; read it for yourself.

The word in, is the Greek word “en” which means in, by or with etc.


Some say Christ is the “end” of the law? No, it means the goal of the law

Rom.10 [4] For Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.


Christ / Messiah is our GOAL


Greek word:


τελος telos -  tel'-os - From a primary word τελλω tello (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly the point aimed at as a limit, the result


Some say God loves the sinner and hates the sin, wrong

Too any verses for this subject, here are 2 verses:

Pss.5 [5] the foolish shall not stand in thy sight: You hate all workers of iniquity

Pss.7 [11] God judges the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day


Some say there are Generational curses?

No generational curses in scripture

No one pays for the sins of someone else

Read chapters 3, 18, 33 of Ezek.

Ezek. 18 [23] Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die, says the Lord Yehovahand not that he should return from his ways, and live?

[32] For I have no pleasure in the death of him that diessays the Lord Yehovahwherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.


Homosexual Rabbi, Pastor, simple believer? Wrong!

Here are a few verses:

Deut.23 [17] 
There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.

קְדֵשָׁה  fem. Gender

קָדֵשׁ  masGender


Both words above can take on the meaning of men or women with multiple partners of men, women, animals, or all.

Gen. 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before Yehovah exceedingly.

Lev.18 [22] You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev.20 [13] If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Exod. 22:19 Whosoever lies with a beast shall surely be put to death.

Deut.22 [5] The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto Yehovah thy God.


Judaism says the mother has to be Jewish to be Jewish - wrong

Rehoboam’s mother was Naamah an Ammonitess, and he was a King!

1Kgs.14 [21] And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which Yehovah did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess.

[22] And Judah did evil in the sight of Yehovah, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.[23] For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.
[24] And there were also sodomites in the 
land : and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which Yehovah cast out before the children of Israel.


1 Kgs.15 [12] And he (Asatook away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

1 Kgs.22 (Jehoshaphat) [46And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.

2Kgs.23 [7And he (Josiah) brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of Yehovah, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

קָדֵשׁ qadesh kaw-dashe' - A person, that is, (technically) a male prostitute, licentious idolatry: - sodomite, unclean.

Total KJV Occurrences: 6

sodomites, 4 - 1Kings 14:24 , 1Ki_15:12 , 1Kings 22:46, 2Kings 23:7

sodomite, 1 – Deut. 23:17  - unclean, 1 – Job 36:14

Sodomy was a crime - Etymology: Anglo-French sodomie - sexual intercourse between men, from Old French, from Late Latin, Sodoma, Sodom, from the supposed homosexual practices of the men of the city in Genesis 19:1-11…

sod·om·ize / transitive verb


1 Cor.6 [9] Know ye not ( Did you know) that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate , nor abusers of themselves with mankind,[ 10] Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortionersshall inherit the kingdom of God.


malakos μαλακος  effeminate

Scripture calls Homosexuality, lesbianism and being effeminate Sin.

Homosexuality, Sexual orientation to persons of the same sex, Sexual activity with another of the same sex

Lesbianism - Sexual orientation of women with women

Rom.1:[21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
[22] Professing 
themselves to be wise, they became fools,
[23] And changed the glory of the 
incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
[24] Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to 
dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

[26] For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (lesbianism)

[27] And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. (Homosexuality between men)

[28] And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

[29] Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
[30] Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
[31] Without understanding, 
covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
[32] Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

1Tim. 1[9] Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,[10] For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for men stealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine…

We learned more about how to treat your brothers and sisters


In closing for now:

This is a good recap of the Torah, TaNaK

These are some of the things we have learned, there are more to come in 2021


Shabbat Shalom
