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


Today is November 28, 2020 in the 21th century

November -- the ninth month – Now the eleventh month J

Middle English Novembre
Latin November
Novembris mensis "nineth month"

Novembris had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 daysuntil Julius when it became 30 days long.

Counting today, only 3 days left to this month.


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


We are now in the 9th month of God called Kislev / Chislev - day 12

Zech.7 [1] And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of Yehovah  came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu \ Chislev \ Kislev  כִסְלֵו

These made-up feasts bring on loneliness, depression, suicide and oh yes, debt.

[1] Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy.
[2] In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar.
[3] And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the 
fat that covereth the inwards,
[4] And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the 
caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away:
[5] And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto 
Yehovah: it is a trespass offering.
[6] Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy.
[7] As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that 
maketh atonement therewith shall have it.
[8] And the priest that 
offereth any man's burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered.
[9] And all the meat offering that is 
baken in the oven, and all that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offereth it.
[10] And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.
[11] And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto 

[12] If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried.

[13] Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.
[14] And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for 
an heave offering unto Yehovah, and it shall be the priest's that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings.

[15] And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning.

[16] But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice: and on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:
[17] But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.
[18] And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be 
accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.
[19] And the flesh that 
toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be clean shall eat thereof.
[20] But the soul that 
eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain unto Yehovah, having his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
[21] Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain unto 
Yehovah, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.


[1] Judge me, Yehoveh; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in Yehovah; therefore I shall not slide.
[2] Examine me, 
Yehoveh and prove me; try my reins and my heart.
[3] For thy 
loving kindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.
[4] I have not sat with vain 
persons; neither will I go in with dissemblers.
[5] I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.
[6] I will wash mine hands in 
innocency: so will I compass your altar, O Yehovah:

[7] That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

[8Yehovah, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where your honor dwells.
[9] Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men
[10] In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.
[11] But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.
[12] My foot 
standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless Yehovah.


[1] The mighty God, even Yehovah, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
[2] Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
[3] Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about him.
[4] He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
[6] And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
[7] Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O 
Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.

[8] I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
[9] I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.
[10] For every beast of the forest 
is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
[11] I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field 
are mine.
[12] If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: 
for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

[13] Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?

[14Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: [15And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

[16But unto the wicked God says, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?
[17] Seeing thou 
hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.
[18] When thou 
sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.
[19] Thou 
givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit.
[20] Thou 
sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest your own mother's son.
[21] These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou 
thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before your eyes.
Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

[23Whoso offers praise glorify me: and to him that orders his conversation aright will I show the salvation of God.


[30] I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.

[31] This also shall please Yehovah better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.


[1] O come, let us sing unto Yehovah: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
[2] Let us come before his presence 
with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
[3] For 
Yehovah is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

[4] In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
[5] The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
[6] O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before 
Yehovah our maker.
[7] For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. 
To day if ye will hear his voice,
[8] Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
[9] When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.
[10] Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
[11] Unto whom I 
sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.


[1] Make a joyful noise unto Yehovah, all ye lands.
[2] Serve 
Yehovah with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
[3] Know 
ye that Yehovah he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
[4] Enter into his gates 
with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
[5] For 
Yehovah is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.


[1] O give thanks unto Yehovah, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
[2] Let the redeemed of 
Yehovah say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
[3] And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
[4] They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in
[5] Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
] Then they cried unto Yehovah in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

[7] And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
[8] Oh 
that men would praise Yehovah for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
[9] For he 
satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
[10] Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;
[11] Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:
[12] Therefore he brought down their heart with 
labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.
[13] Then they cried unto 
Yehovah in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.
[14] He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and 
brake their bands in sunder.
[15] Oh 
that men would praise Yehovah for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
[16] For 
he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.
[17] Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.
[18] Their soul 
abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.
[19] Then they cry unto 
Yehovah in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.
[20] He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
[21] Oh 
that men would praise Yehovah for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

[22] And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

[23] They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;
[24] These see the works of 
Yehovah, and his wonders in the deep.
[25] For he 
commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
[26] They mount up to the 
heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
[27] They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
[28] Then they cry unto 
Yehovah in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
[29] He 
maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
[30] Then are they glad because they 
be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
[31] Oh 
that men would praise Yehovah for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!
[32] Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
[33] He 
turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
[34] A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
[35] He 
turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.
[36] And there he 
maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;
[37] And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.
[38] He 
blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.
[39] Again, they are 
minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.
[40] He 
poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.
[41] Yet 
setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.
[42] The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.
[43] Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the 
lovingkindness of Yehovah.


[1] I love Yehovah, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
[2] Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I 
[3] The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
[4] Then called I upon the name of 
Yehovah; O Yehovah, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
[5] Gracious is 
Yehovah, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
Yehovah preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
[7] Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for 
Yehovah hath dealt bountifully with thee.
[8] For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
[9] I will walk before 
Yehovah in the land of the living.
[10] I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted
[11] I said in my haste, All men are liars.
[12] What shall I render unto 
Yehovah for all his benefits toward me?
[13] I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of 
[14] I will pay my vows unto 
Yehovah now in the presence of all his people.
[15] Precious in the sight of 
Yehovah is the death of his saints.
Yehovah, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of your handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
[17] I will offer to thee 
the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Yehovah.
[18] I will pay my vows unto 
Yehovah now in the presence of all his people,
[19] In the courts of 
Yehovah's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise Yah.


[1] Praise ye Yehovah: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
Yehovah doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.
[3] He 
healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
[4] He 
telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
[5] Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
Yehovah lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
[7] Sing unto 
Yehovah with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
[8] Who 
covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
[9] He 
giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
[10] He 
delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.
Yehovah taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
[12] Praise 
Yehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
[13] For 
he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee.
[14] He 
maketh peace in thy borders, and filleth thee with the finest of the wheat.
[15] He 
sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
[16] He 
giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
[17] He 
casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
[18] He 
sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
[19] He 
sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
[20] He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise 
ye Yah.


Jonah tells us:

Jonah 2

[1] Then Jonah prayed unto Yehovah his God out of the fish's belly,
[2] And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto 
Yehovah, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.
[3] For thou 
hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.
[4] Then I said, I am cast out of thy sight; yet I will look again toward thy holy temple.
[5] The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round 
about, the weeds were wrapped about my head.
[6] I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me 
for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, YEHOVAH my God.
[7] When my soul fainted within me I remembered 
Yehovah: and my prayer came in unto thee, into your holy temple.
[8] They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.

[9] But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of Yehovah.

וַאֲנִי, בְּקוֹל תּוֹדָה אֶזְבְּחָה-לָּךְ

[10] And Yehovah spake unto the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.



[6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.


[1] For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;
[2] That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Messiah;
[3] In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
[4] And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
[5] For though I 
be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the steadfastness of your faith in Messiah.
[6] As ye have therefore received 
Messiah Yeshua our Lord, so walk ye in him:
[7] Rooted and built up in him, and 
stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.


[1] And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
[2] And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea
[3] Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

[4] And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.


[5] Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

[6] Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

[7] Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

[8] Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

[9] After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
[10] And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which 
sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

[11] And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

[12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

[13] And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

[14] And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

[15] Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
[16] They shall hunger no more, neither thirst 
any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

[17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.


Pss.136 [1] O give thanks unto the Yehovah; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

הוֹדוּ לַיהוָה כִּי-טוֹב:    כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ.

 [2] O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.

 הוֹדוּ, לֵאלֹהֵי הָאֱלֹהִים:    כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ.

[3] O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.

הוֹדוּ, לַאֲדֹנֵי הָאֲדֹנִים:    כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ.

[26] O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.

הוֹדוּ, לְאֵל הַשָּׁמָיִם:    כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ.

In closing for now:

In this short study, I hope you see, it is a good thing to “thank Yehovah” all the time, in every situation or place.


Once upon a time, Christmas, X mass was banned in 1659 in America


Beware of the "false image" of love

Beware of "false feelings and emotions"

These pagan feasts bring on loneliness, depression, suicide and oh yes, debt.


Wicked Awesome commercials are all here L 

Watch out for feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fatigue and loss of energy, impaired concentration, loss of interest in almost all activity, insomnia and recurring thoughts of death or suicide.

Shabbat Shalom
