Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500ís.
Today is June 29, 2013
June -- Juno's month
Junius had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.
Juno is the principle goddess of the Roman Pantheon.
She is the goddess of marriage and the well-being of women.
She is the wife and sister of Jupiter.
She is identified with the Greek goddess Hera.
Hera is the queen of the gods. Hera is the wife and one of three sisters of Zeus in the Olympian pantheon of Greek mythology and religion.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in the 4th month, 19th day (this month has no name)
Judaism calls the 4 month Tammuz which is made up, not in the Hebrew Scriptures
The only verse for Tammuz in the Scriptures is:
Ezek.8[ 14] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Yehovah's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz - ( a pagan deity ) מְבַכּוֹת אֶת־הַ תַּמּוּז †-- a Sumerian deity of food or vegetation, a Phoenician deity

Before we start this Sabbath study, I need to mention that the Sabbath is not "a service" for an hour and a half.
The Sabbath is a whole 24 hour period, a day to study and reflect on the words of the God of Israel.
The Sabbath is just one of Godís commandments; donít make Sabbath a god or a queen, as some have done in the past.
So I ask this question again: S0 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 ďcovenantĒ given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan
Ex. 20  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
 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.
Lev. 23  And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.
Within your gates - in all your dwellings
Holy Ė no unclean thing around you
Unto this day in 2013, some people are still breaking the 4th commandment each week by not keeping the Sabbath as it is described above.
Some people think breaking the Sabbath is no big deal; they just break it, and then go on their way as if nothing happened, but it has happened, they sinned presumptuously, knowingly!
Some peopleís only hope at that point is that they have not come to the knowledge of the truth, maybe there will be forgiveness. I advised that you donít try this at home.
You never know when you will meet the God of Israel. You donít have to be old; you donít have to be sick when your time is up to meet God.
I hear every day; even healthy people by some type of accident or any unforeseen event go out to meet God.
The book of Ecclesiastes states:
Ecc. 8 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
 For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
 All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.
 And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.
 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:
 But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.
As you read verse 11 above, some people think theyíre getting away with every sin because judgment is not executed right at the moment of their sin, they are deceived.
Exod.31 Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death:
for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Yehovah: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Heb.10 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
 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 the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
I shall again define a few Hebrew words:
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.
מקרא miqra: convocation, convoking, reading, a calling together, sacred assembly, something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal
קדשׁ kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness Ė no unclean thing around you
משׁב/מושׁב ††môshâv - seat, assembly, dwelling-place, dwelling, your† situation, location, (at) time of dwelling
Adding and diminishing from Godís word
This is a salvation issue!
First I will mention a few things to beware of:
False image of Love
False feelings and emotions
Beware of People that are kinder than God, more loving than God, more forgiving than God more merciful than God, and so on.
Beware of people that sin presumptuously and then say they have a relationship with God, God will forgive them, God understands.
They are deceived.
I always wonder, if God destroyed many of his own chosen people, the Israelites, why do the Gentiles think they have a free pass to do anything they wish at any time and get away with it?
I see these people have never read the letter that Paul wrote to the Romans:
Rom.11  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 God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: 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 God 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?
Adding and diminishing from Godís word
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.
לֹא תֹסִפוּ, עַל־הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם, וְלֹא תִגְרְעוּ, מִמֶּנּוּ־־לִשְׁמֹר, אֶת־מִצְוֹת יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם, אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי, מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם
Deut.12  What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
אֵת כָּל־הַדָּבָר, אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם־־אֹתוֹ תִשְׁמְרוּ, לַעֲשׂוֹת: לֹא־תֹסֵף עָלָיו, וְלֹא תִגְרַע מִמֶּנּוּ
Prov.30  Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
When I speak to some people, they think itís no big deal if people make things up, preach heresy, change dates in Godís feasts, sell the word of God, sell corrupt Bibles, sell trinkets that are not from Scripture and then they have the nerve to make excuses for them.
Paul tells the Galatians:
Gal.5  Now the works of the
flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness,
 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Paul tells the Corinthians:
1Cor.6  Know ye not 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,
 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
John tells us:
Rev.21 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
We do not want this attitude - to be ďRight in our own eyes"
Some people just want to serve God their own way, not Godís way.
Letís read some Scripture
Num. 15  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:†
 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.
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.
Judg. 21  In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
Prov. 3  Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear Yehovah, and depart from evil.
Prov. 12  The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Prov. 16  All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but Yehovah weigheth the spirits.
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!
Question - What was a job of a King of Israel?
Answer: he shall write him a copy of this lawÖ
 When thou art come unto the land which Yehovah thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;
 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom Yehovah thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as Yehovah hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.
 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:
 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear Yehovah his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:
 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.
Judg.17  In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
Where did they go wrong? Right here, they say:
ďMake us a king to judge us like all the nationsĒ
1 Sam. 8
 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that
he made his sons judges over Israel.
 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beer-sheba.
 And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.
 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.
 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto Yehovah.
 And Yehovah said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
 And Samuel told all the words of Yehovah unto the people that asked of him a king.
 And he said, This will be the manner of the
king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for
himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before
 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and Yehovah will not hear you in that day.
 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;
 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of Yehovah.
 And Yehovah said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.
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.
We are to be judges, priests and Kings now
Read and learn the word of God. Study; prove all things, like the Kings were supposed to do of old and most of them did it not.
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.
God says "don't be like all the nations:
Jer.10[ 2] Thus saith Yehovah, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. [3 ] For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. [ 4] They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
Jer.6 Thus saith Yehovah, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths , where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein . ( like most of the world today )
Jer.18[ 15] Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths , in a way not cast up;[16 ] To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head.
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.
Colossians 4:6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
1 Pet. 3  But sanctify Yehovah God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
Colossians 3:16: Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to Yehovah.
2 Peter 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
Rom. 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Prov. 14  The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
All we need are the Scriptures for truth, correction, righteous judgment, faith, encouragement and so on.
Study, learn, obey and apply in your life. Donít be right in your own eyes, fear God and keep his commandments.
Ecc.12 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this 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.
