Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s
Today is July 21, 2018 - in the 21 Century
Middle English Julie
Latin Julius "Julius"
Latin Julius mensis "month of Julius"
Latin quintilis mensis "fifth month"
Quintilis (and later Julius) has always had 31 days.
Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.
We acknowledge Yehovah’s calendar
We are now in the 5th month, day 7 – This month has no scriptural name.
It is not Av as Judaism and some Messianics say it is.
Part of July / August

Beware of the temptations of this world
Saul tells us:
1 John 2  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.
If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
This short study below is pertaining to borrowing from the heathen, people not of the Israel of God, not your brother or sister.
The way we were brought up, to be in debt (and without the God of Israel) makes this another hard study to understand and receive.
The world says, it is almost un-American not to be in debt or have a loan or a mortgage.
Should we be in debt to people not of the God of Israel? NO!
Prov. 22 ... the borrower is servant to the lender
Rom. 13  Owe no man any thing...
We are commanded by Yehovah:
Thou shalt lend unto many nations (the heathen), and thou shalt not borrow.
Deut. 15  For Yehovah thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations,but they shall not reign over thee.
Deut. 28  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Yehovah thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that Yehovah thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Yehovah thy God.
 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
 Yehovah shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
 Yehovah shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which Yehovah thy God giveth thee.
 Yehovah shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of Yehovah thy God, and walk in his ways.
 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of Yehovah; and they shall be afraid of thee.
 And Yehovah shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which Yehovah sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
 Yehovah shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand:
nd thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
 And Yehovah shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath;
if that thou hearken unto the commandments of Yehovah thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of Yehovah thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.
 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
 Yehovah shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
 Yehovah shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.
 Yehovah shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.
 Yehovah shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
 Yehovah shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.
 Yehovah will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.
 Yehovah shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:
 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.
 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.
 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.
 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand.
 The fruit of thy
land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt
be only oppressed and crushed alway:
 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
 Yehovah shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.
 Yehovah shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.
 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither Yehovah shall lead thee.
 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.
 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.
 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.
 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.
 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.
 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.
 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of Yehovah thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:
 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.
 Because thou servedst not Yehovah thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies
which Yehovah shall send against thee, in hunger, and
in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke
of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.
 Yehovah shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;
 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:
 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.
 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which Yehovah thy God hath given thee.
 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which Yehovah thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:
 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:
 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.
 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,
 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.
 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, YEHOVAH THY GOD;
 Then Yehovah will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.
 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
 Also every
sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them
will Yehovah bring upon thee, until thou be
 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of Yehovah thy God.
 And it shall come to pass, that as Yehovah rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so Yehovah will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
 And Yehovah shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.
 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but Yehovah shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:
 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:
 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
 And Yehovah shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
This happened in Nehemiah’s time and all though time
Neh. 5  And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews.
 For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many: therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live. (Very sad)
 Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.
 There were also that said,
We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon
our lands and vineyards.
 Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.
 And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.
 Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.
 And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us?
Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer.
 Also I said, It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies?
 I likewise, and my brethren, and my servants, might exact of them money and corn: I pray you, let us leave off this usury.
 Restore, I pray you, to them, even this day, their lands, their vineyards, their oliveyards, and their houses, also the the hundredth part of the money, and of the corn, the wine, and the oil, that ye exact of them.
 Then said they, We will restore them, and will require nothing of them; so will we do as thou sayest. Then I called the priests, and took an oath of them, that they should do according to this promise.
 Also I shook my lap, and said, So God shake out every man from his house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise, even thus be he shaken out, and emptied. And all the congregation said, Amen, and praised the LORD. And the people did according to this promise.
 Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor.
 But the former governors that had been before me were chargeable unto the people, and had taken of them bread and wine, beside forty shekels of silver; yea, even their servants bare rule over the people: but so did not I, because of the fear of God.
 Yea, also I continued in the work of this wall, neither bought we any land: and all my servants were gathered thither unto the work.
 Moreover there were at my table an hundred and fifty of the Jews and rulers, beside those that came unto us from among the heathen that are about us.
 Now that which was prepared for me daily was one ox and six choice sheep; also fowls were prepared for me, and once in ten days store of all sorts of wine: yet for all this required not I the bread of the governor, because the bondage was heavy upon this people.
 Think upon me, my God, for good, according to all that I have done for this people.
Pss. 37  The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.
Prov. 22  The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.
Now, a few scriptures pertaining to borrowing from your brother or sister which is a different story.
Exod.22  If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.
Lev.25  And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.
Deut.23  Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:
 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury;
but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that Yehovah thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
Deut.24  When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge. Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.  And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:
 In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before Yehovah thy God.
Pss.112  A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
We see there are many lessons to learn in scripture
Matt.19  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 callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God:
but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
 He saith unto him, Which?
Yeshua said, Thou shalt do no murder,
Thou shalt not commit adultery,
Thou shalt not steal,
Thou shalt not bear false witness,
 Honour thy father and thy mother: and,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
He knew the Torah lived in Israel; the Sabbath was a way of life there
 Yeshua said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt 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.
 Then answered Peter and said unto Yeshua,
Behold, “we have forsaken all, and followed thee”,
what shall we have therefore?
 And Yeshua said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake,
shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
