Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s,
December 27, 2014
December -- the tenth month (now the 12th month)
Middle English decembre
Old French decembre
Latin december "tenth month"
Latin decem "ten" + -ber (adj. suffix)
December had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in 10th month of God called Tevet, 4th day
Esth.2  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.

Just a reminder:
Beware of "false images" of love
Beware of "false feelings and emotions"
All pagan, unscriptural feasts bring on loneliness, depression, suicide, violence and oh yes, debt.
Just for the record:
Started 2 days ago - Kwanzaa - Ron Karenga (aka Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga) invented the seven-day feast, Dec. 26-Jan. 1, in 1966, branding it a black alternative to Christmas.
The idea was to celebrate the end of what he considered the pseudo Christmas-season exploitation of African Americans.
Just another made up holiday to cause division
Question: Why are we here today?
Answer: We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy
The 4th Commandment is a part of the covenant given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan
We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath.
60 times in the Gospels and letters it uses the word Sabbath
Ex. 20  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
זכר zâkar - zaw-kar' - A primitive root; properly to mark (so as to be recognized), that is, to remember; by implication to mention; make mention of, be mindful, recount, record (-er), remember, make to be remembered, bring (call, come, keep, put) to (in) remembrance, still, think on, well.
back to Ex. 20
 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
 For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Rev.1  I was in the Spirit on the Yehovah's Day - (The Sabbath)
Lev. 23  Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, a "holy convocation"; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.
The Sabbath is a "holy convocation"

קדשׁ kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness
Paul tells us: in Colossians 2:16,
Col. 2:16: Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:
17: Which are a shadow of "things to come"; (future tense) but the body is of Messiah.
Judge - κρινω krino: to try to condemn, to separate, put asunder, to pick out, to be of opinion, judge, to pronounce an opinion concerning right and wrong, to contend, to dispute

New moon - νουμηνία - noumēnia - noo-may-nee'-ah - new moon
Sabbath days - σάββατον - sabbaton sab'-bat-on Of Hebrew origin - the Sabbath, 7th day of week, repose from secular avocations;
Also there are 7 Sabbaths in the feasts of Yehovah which are commands to keep from God.
Shadow - σκια skia : shadow, an image cast by an object and representing the form of that object, a sketch, outline
מושׁב moshav - seat, assembly, dwelling-place, dwelling, your situation, location, (at) time of dwelling
Well, made up Christmas and Chanukah are over again.
Soon we will have made up New Year, in winter
What a made up life we have if we let it
Do your research, the truth is out there
Watch and be aware of the life you so-call live, always check for:
False data, false people, false doctrine, false histories, false pagan holidays, false drugs, prescriptions, remedies, false situations, propaganda, misinformation, disinformation, forged documents, fabrications, and misdirection, simply out, lies!
Don’t just follow the crowd
Don’t Add and diminish from God’s word
People playing with our lives, feeding us false information
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.
The celebration of the New Year on January 1st is a relatively new phenomenon.
The earliest recording of a New Year celebration is believed to have been in Mesopotamia, c. 2000 B.C. and was celebrated around the time of the vernal equinox, in mid-March. A variety of other dates tied to the seasons were also used by various ancient cultures.
The Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Persians began their new year with the fall equinox, and the Greeks celebrated it on the winter solstice.
The early Roman calendar designated March 1 as the New Year. The calendar had just ten months, beginning with March. That the New Year once began with the month of March is still reflected in some of the names of the months. September through December, our ninth through twelfth months, were originally positioned as the seventh through tenth months (septem is Latin for "seven," octo is "eight," novem is "nine," and decem is "ten.")
The first time the New Year was celebrated on January 1st was in Rome in 153 B.C.
In fact, the month of January did not even exist until around 700 B.C., when the second king of Rome, Numa Pontilius, added the months of January and February.
The new year was moved from March to January because that was the beginning of the civil year, the month that the two newly elected Roman consuls—the highest officials in the Roman republic—began their one-year tenure. But this New Year date was not always strictly and widely observed, and the New Year was still sometimes celebrated on March 1.
In 46 B.C. Julius Caesar introduced a new, solar-based calendar that was a vast improvement on the ancient Roman calendar, which was a lunar system that had become wildly inaccurate over the years. The Julian calendar decreed that the New Year would occur with January 1, and within the Roman world, January 1 became the consistently observed start of the New Year.
In medieval Europe, however, the celebrations accompanying the New Year were considered pagan and un- pseudo Christian like, and in 567 the Council of Tours abolished January 1 as the beginning of the year. At various times and in various places throughout medieval pseudo Christian Europe,
the New Year was celebrated on:
Dec. 25, the birth of Yeshua (NOT)
March 25 the Feast of the Annunciation
Looks like the Catholics took over above
In 1582, the Gregorian calendar reform restored January 1 as New Year’s Day. Although most Catholic countries adopted the Gregorian calendar almost immediately, it was only gradually adopted among Protestant countries. The British, for example, did not adopt the reformed calendar until 1752.
Until then, the British Empire —and their American colonies— still celebrated the New Year in March.
When Julius Caesar (100-44 B.C.) crafted the Julian calendar in 46 B.C., he moved the beginning of the year to January 1. Even after the introduction of the Gregorian calendar in 1582, January 1 continued to be recognized as the first day of the year in most places.
However, up until 1752, England and its American colonies started the New Year with March 25, representing the spring equinox.
The equinox which occurs each spring and fall, is the date on which the sun shines most directly on the equator and day and night are of roughly equal length.
Under this system, March 24, 1700, was followed by March 25, 1701.
Notice only 25 days per month at that time
In 1752, the British government declared that January 1 would begin the New Year.

A Judaism source
In 46 B.C.E. the Roman emperor Julius Caesar first established January 1 as New Year’s Day. Janus was the Roman god of doors and gates, and had two faces, one looking forward and one back.
Caesar felt that the month named after this god (“January”) would be the appropriate “door” to the year. Caesar celebrated the first January 1 New Year by ordering the violent routing of revolutionary Jewish forces in the Galilee.
Eyewitnesses say blood flowed in the streets. In later years, Roman pagans observed the New Year by engaging in drunken orgies—a ritual they believed constituted a personal re-enacting of the chaotic world that existed before the cosmos was ordered by the gods.
As pseudo Christianity spread, pagan holidays were either incorporated into the pseudo Christian calendar or abandoned altogether.
By the early medieval period most of pseudo Christian Europe regarded Annunciation Day (March 25) as the beginning of the year. (According to Catholic tradition, Annunciation Day commemorates the angel Gabriel’s announcement to Mary that she would be impregnated by G-d and conceives a son to be called Yeshua.)
After William the Conqueror (AKA “William the Bastard” and “William of Normandy”) became King of England on December 25, 1066, he decreed that the English return to the date established by the Roman pagans, January 1.
This move ensured that the commemoration of Yeshua’ birthday (December 25) would align with William’s coronation, and the commemoration of Yeshua’ circumcision (January 1) would start the new year - thus rooting the English and Christian calendars and his own Coronation).
William’s innovation was eventually rejected, and England rejoined the rest of the pseudo Christian world and returned to celebrating New Years Day on March 25.
About five hundred years later, in 1582, Pope Gregory XIII (AKA “Ugo Boncompagni”, 1502-1585) abandoned the traditional Julian calendar.
By the Julian reckoning, the solar year comprised 365.25 days, and the intercalation of a “leap day” every four years was intended to maintain correspondence between the calendar and the seasons.
Really, however there was a slight inaccuracy in the Julian measurement (the solar year is actually 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46 seconds = 365.2422 days).
This slight inaccuracy caused the Julian calendar to slip behind the seasons about one day per century.
Although this regression had amounted to 14 days by Pope Gregory’s time, he based his reform on restoration of the vernal equinox, then falling on March 11, to the date had 1,257 years earlier when Council of Nicaea was convened (March 21, 325 C.E.).
Pope Gregory made the correction by advancing the calendar 10 days. The change was made the day after October 4, 1582, and that following day was established as October 15, 1582.
The Gregorian calendar differs from the Julian in three ways:
(1) No century year is a leap year unless it is exactly divisible by 400 (e.g., 1600, 2000, etc.);
(2) Years divisible by 4000 are common (not leap) years;
(3) Once again the New Year would begin with the date set by the early pagans, the first day of the month of Janus - January 1.
On New Year Day 1577 Pope Gregory XIII decreed that all Roman Jews, under pain of death, must listen attentively to the compulsory Catholic conversion sermon given in Roman synagogues after Friday night services.
On New Year Day 1578 Gregory signed into law a tax forcing Jews to pay for the support of a “House of Conversion” to convert Jews to pseudo Christianity.
On New Year 1581 Gregory ordered his troops to confiscate all sacred literature from the Roman Jewish community. Thousands of Jews were murdered in the campaign.
Throughout the medieval and post-medieval periods, January 1 - supposedly the day on which Yeshua’ circumcision initiated the reign of pseudo Christianity and the death of Judaism - was reserved for anti-Jewish activities: synagogue and book burnings, public tortures, and simple murder.
The Israeli term for New Year’s night celebrations, “Sylvester,” was the name of the “Saint” and Roman Pope who reigned during the Council of Nicaea (325 C.E.).
The year before the Council of Nicaea convened, Sylvester convinced Constantine to prohibit Jews from living in Jerusalem. At the Council of Nicaea, Sylvester arranged for the passage of a host of viciously anti-Semitic legislation.
All Catholic “Saints” are awarded a day on which pseudo Christians celebrate and pay tribute to that Saint’s memory. December 31 is Saint Sylvester Day - hence celebrations on the night of December 31 are dedicated to Sylvester’s memory.
What a mess above
Why not just look in scripture and see when God’s New Year started and then follow God?
Exod.12 Just before Passover, in spring
 And Yehovah 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.
Exod.13  This day came ye out in the month ha aviv. (Abib)
Adding and diminishing from the Word of God causes all the problems
Deut. 4  Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of Yehovah your God which I command you.
Deut. 12  What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
Prov. 30  Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
In our lives, we don’t want this attitude - to be “Right in our own eyes"
 And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
They were so evil; they needed something to “remember”
 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and “remember” all the commandments of Yehovah, and do them;
and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
*** That ye may “remember”, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
 I am Yehovah your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Yehovah your God.
Tit.1 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
2Pet.2  But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
Deut.12  Ye shall not do after all the things that we do here this day, every man whatsoever is right in his own eyes.
Judg. 17  In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.

Prov. 12  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Prov. 21  Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but Yehovah pondereth the hearts.
Prov. 30  There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
Isa. 5  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
We are to be judges, priests and Kings now
Exod. 19  And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
1 Pet. 2  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:  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.
Please always prove all things
1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew "thyself approved" unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Prov. 14  The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
Which counsel are you listening to, Godly counsel or ungodly counsel?
Seek Godly counsel
Pss. 55  We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
Prov. 1  A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
Prov. 11  Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.
Prov. 12  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Prov. 15  Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.
Prov. 19  Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
Prov. 20  Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
Prov. 24  For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellers there is safety.
Prov. 27  Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
Pss. 33  The counsel of Yehovah standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.
The counsel of the ungodly
Pss. 1  Blessed is the man (or woman) that: walketh
not in the counsel of the ungodly
nor standeth in the way of sinners
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
 But his delight is in the law of Yehovah; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
 For Yehovah knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Pss. 33  Yehovah bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
Don't separate yourself from the flock where the wolf cometh
 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which
shall devour the adversaries.
 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith Yehovah. And again, The Lord (the Word) shall judge his people.
 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Seek Godly counsel in all things
2 Chr. 20 ... Believe in Yehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.
In every generation, I believe, there are always a few chosen people of God that try to restore God's laws, commandments and feasts before He comes back.
All we need are the Scriptures for truth, correction, righteous judgment, faith, encouragement and so on.
We do not need made-up religions, gifts, philosophies, feasts or holidays to feel good.
We are told who to follow in scripture, Yeshua, the apostles and Paul which all observed the Sabbath and holy days of God in scripture.
After Yeshua and the apostles die unto our time it has been approximately 1900 years again without the God of Israel, God's Laws, Sabbaths, Calendar and feasts.
Again, most of the world is blinded to all these things of God as of 2014 15
In 2014 -15, let us do our best to restore God's forgotten Sabbath, laws, commandments, feasts, etc...
And further, by these, my sons (and daughters), (in
2012 and the rest of your lives) be admonished: of making many books
there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep his commandments:
is the whole duty of man.
 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Keep far away from any false matter
