Shabbat Shalom שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם
Today is the Shabbat, God’s Time
Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s.
Today is February 8th, 2014
February -- month of Februa
Latin dies februatus "day of purification"
Februarius had 28 days, until circa 450 BC when it had 23 or 24 days on some of every second year, until Julius when it had 29 days on every fourth year and 28 days otherwise.
Februa is the Roman festival of purification held on February fifteenth. It is possibly of Sabine origin.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in the 12th month, which is the month called Adar, 7th day
Adar = “glorious”- אדר

We discontinued our account on Facebook, it seems to be a waste of time.
Are their people that have died in heaven or hell now, today?
To all, please don’t follow rabbis, Judaism or messianics that follow rabbis, Judaism nor follow gentile Protestants ministers that went messianic that follow rabbis – quite a mouth full J
2Cor.5  We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Simply put: you therefore do greatly error - God is, not will be the God of the Living
Mark.12  And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
Gen.26 And Yehovah appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.
Gen.31 I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.
Exod.3 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
All the verses about sleeping in the dust are talking about your flesh when you die, spirits don’t sleep, hover in dust J
The flesh will be change into incorruptible flesh at the “last day”
1Cor.15  It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
Heaven and Hell are spiritual places
Yes there are People that have died, in Heaven & Hell today, even now as you read this!
We are not talking about people in the flesh that are alive
1Cor.15  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
When we are alive on earth we are called a living soul. (with a spirit)
When we die we are called quickening spirits.
Gen.2 And Yehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
1Cor.15 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam (after he dies) was made a quickening spirit.
Ecc.12 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
1Pet.3  By which also he (Yeshua) went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
Hell has other references as prison, the pit
Being with God has many references as Heaven, Abraham’s bosom, paradise
Hell now while the earth abides then the Lake of Fire at the very end
Rev.20 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Moses and Elias – their spirits are not sleeping in the dust, they appeared!
And after six days Yeshua taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,
 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him.
 Then answered Peter, and said unto Yeshua, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
As you read Luke 16, just think these people are still there today
Luke.16  There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom:
the rich man also died, and was buried;
 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue;
for I am tormented in this flame.
 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things:
but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my
 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them,
lest they also come into this place of torment.
Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the
prophets; let them hear them.
 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
Isa.14  Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Matt.25  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
Here are other references of people in heaven
Yeshua said there are people in heaven now:
Matt.11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. (John)
Luke.7 28] For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
Matt.5  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least " in ", (which means by, among ) kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great " in ", (which means by, among ) the kingdom of heaven.
Enoch – Where did he go? He is with God
Gen.5 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Here is a reference to a man that was about to die as Yeshua died on the tree / cross
Luke.23  And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on
him, saying, If thou be Messiah, save thyself and us.
 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
 And he said unto Yeshua, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
 And Yeshua said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Elijah into heaven
2Kgs.2 And it came to pass, when Yehovah would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.  And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
Many verses say God is in heaven, I am not going to mention them all. Angeles, God’s army etc., are all in heaven now.
Ecclesiastes 5:2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter anything before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.
Yeshua taught his disciples to pray:
Matt 6  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Pss.11 The LORD is in his holy temple, Yehovah's throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
 Then said Yeshua unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
 Then when Yeshua came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:
 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Yeshua was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
 Then said Martha unto Yeshua, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
 Yeshua saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
 Yeshua said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Much people in heaven
Rev.19  And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
Many pseudo ministers misinterpret these verses
Let's break down this scripture, John 3:13
John.3  And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven , even the Son of man which is in heaven.
1 - And no man hath ascended up to heaven,
2 - but he that came down from heaven,
3 - even the Son of man which is in heaven.
1 - John.3  And no man hath ascended up to heaven,
No mere man, as you Nicodemus, "came from heaven" or hath ascended to heaven to bring from heaven the knowledge and mysteries of God ( heavenly things - verse 12 ) and then return to earth to teach men what he knew, as I, Yeshua had done. That is what he is saying.
Prophets have had visions of what Yehovah has wanted them to reveal to the people, but they have never actually been in heaven and seen the God Almighty in all His power (No man has seen God at any time - John 1:18, 4:12). However God showed up many time and in many places in other forms, manifestations speaking to them all through the scriptures.
Here is another example
David did not go to heaven to get this understanding then but it was revealed to him at that time.
Acts.2- For David is not ascended into the heavens: but
he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
***Please do not confuse this with "there is no one in heaven now"*** as some do!
God is a God of the 'Living", not the dead. (Mark.12  He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.)
Nicodemus had acknowledged Messiah Yeshua to be a teacher come from God:
John.3 [2 ] The same came to Yeshua by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Yeshua knew He was come of God
John.13 [3 ] Yeshua . Yeshua knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he, Yeshua was come from God, and went to God;
Most pastors and church people do not understand this scripture.
If you break the commandments or teach men so, you will not be in heaven.
The people in heaven will call you the "least", worst on this earth.
Matt.5  Whosoever therefore shall " break " one of these least commandments,
and shall "teach " men so,
he shall be "called" the least"
"in the kingdom of heaven": but
"whosoever shall do (commandments) and teach them",
the same shall be "called great in the kingdom of heaven ".
Scripture tells us NO sin shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven
Rev.21  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.
Eph.5 That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Scripture tells us if you teach people to break the commandments and serve other gods, then:
Deut.13: If there arise among
you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yehovah your God proveth you, to know whether ye love Yehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
 Ye shall walk after Yehovah your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from Yehovah your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which Yehovah thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.
 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;
 Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;
 Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:
 But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
 And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from Yehovah thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.
 If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which Yehovah thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying, Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; Then shalt thou inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for Yehovah thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again. And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that Yehovah may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers; When thou shalt hearken to the voice of Yehovah thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of Yehovah thy God.

1Kgs.8 And hearken thou to the supplication of thy servant, and of thy people Israel, when they shall pray toward this place: and hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place: and when thou hearest, forgive.
 Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)
