Today, we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s,
Today is April 3, 2021
April -- Aphrodite's month
Old English April(is)
Greek Aphro, short for Aphrodite.
Aprilis had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.
Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She is identified with the Roman goddess Venus.
Yehovah God has His own calendar, which is deleted from the world

Tomorrow is Sunday, the last day of the feast of unleavened bread and resurrection day! Not Easter
Almost the end of the feast of unleavened bread
So let brotherly and sisterly love continue… J
 Let love be without dissimulation. (To disguise or hide true feelings, thoughts, or intentions)
Abhor, hate that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
 Be kindly affectionate one to another with brotherly love; in honors preferring one another;
 Not slothful
in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
 If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.
 … no man go beyond and defraud (to be covetous, that is, (by implication) to over reach: - get an advantage, make a gain.) his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.
 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
 He therefore that despises despises not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his Holy Spirit.
 But as touching brotherly love you need not that I write unto you: for you yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
 And indeed you do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia:
but we beseech you, brethren and sisters, that you increase more and more;
 And that you
study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own
hands, as we commanded you;
 That you may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that you may have lack of nothing.  But as touching brotherly love you need not that I write unto you: for you yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
 Simon Peter, a
servant and an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah, to them that
have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and
our Savior Yeshua the Messiah:
 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Yeshua our Lord,
 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
 And beside
this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that you shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
 But he that lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall…
Charity – Agape: Love, affection, benevolence
Dictionary: noun: Generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless something given to a person or persons in need; alms
A charitable act or work - a charitable fund, foundation, or institution
Benevolent feeling, especially toward those in need or in disfavor
Leniency in using bad judging of others; forbearance
 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but charity edifies.
 Though I speak
with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as
sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profits me nothing.
 Charity suffers long, and is kind;
Charity envies not;
Charity vaunts not itself, is not puffed up,
 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil;
 Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;
 Bears all things,
Believes all things,
Hopes all things,
Endures all things
 Charity never fails:
… whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
 When I was a child, I spoke as a child; I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
 And now abides faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
 Let all your things be done with charity.
 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Messiah forgave you, so also do you.
 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
 Now the end (result) of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;  Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
 Be you angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:  Neither give place to the devil.
 … if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
 Yeshua said unto him, I say not unto
thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.
 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed
him ten thousand talents.
 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made.
 The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, which owed him an hundred
pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me
that you owe.
 And his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
 So when his fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done.
 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O you wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because you desires me:
 Should not you also have had compassion on your fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?
 And his lord was wroth and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him.
 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if you from your hearts forgive not everyone his brother their trespasses.
Love your neighbor (brother and sister) as yourself
 You shall not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as thyself: I am Yehovah.
And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
 And he said unto him, why do you call good? There is none good but one, that is, God: but if you will enter into life, keep the commandments.
 He said unto him, which?
Yeshua said, You shall do no murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness,
 Honor your father and your mother: and, You shall love your neighbor as thyself.
 The young man said unto him, all these things have I kept from my youth up: what do I lack yet?
 Yeshua said unto him, if you will be perfect:
go and sell that you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
 Then said Yeshua unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, that a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
 And again I say unto you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, who then can be saved?
 But Yeshua beheld them, and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
 Yeshua said unto him,
You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your (entire) mind.
 This is the first and great commandment.
 And the
second is like unto it, you shall love your neighbor as thyself.
 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him,
Which is the first commandment of all?
 And Yeshua answered him,
The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment.
 And the second is like, namely this, you shall love your neighbor as thyself.
There is none other commandment greater than these.
 for, brethren, you have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this;
You shall love your neighbor as thyself.
 But if you bite and devour one another, take heed that you are not consumed one of another.
 This I say
then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that you cannot do the things that you would.
 But if you be led of the Spirit, you are not under the law.
 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings (a carousal - a wild, drunken party or celebration l (letting loose): rioting.), 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.
 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
 And they that are Messiah's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
 If we live in
the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
 If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, you shall love your neighbor as thyself, you do well:
 But if you have respect to persons, you commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
 For he that said, do not commit adultery, said also, do not kill. Now if you commit no adultery, yet if you kill, you are become a transgressor of the law.
 So speak you, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
 For He (God) shall have judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoices against judgment.
1 John 4
 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
 Hereby know you the Spirit of God:
Every spirit that confesses that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh(of Israel) is of God:
 And every spirit that confesses not that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them.
 We are of God: he that knows God hears us; he that is not of God hears not us.
Hereby we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God.
 He that loves not knows not God; for God is love.
 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.
 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwells in us, and his love is perfected in us.
 Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.
 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.
 Whosoever shall confess that Yeshua is the Son of God, God dwells in him, and he in God.
 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwells in love dwells in God, and God in him.
 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
 There is no fear (of the world) in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear hath torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.
 We love Him, because He first loved us.
 If a man say, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that loves not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
 And this commandment has we from Him, that he who loves God love his brother and sister also.
 Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loves another hath fulfilled the law.
 For this, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, You shall not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, You shall love your neighbor as thyself.
 Love works no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
 But put you on the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
In closing for today:
See you - Lord willing J tomorrow
