Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s
Today is Sept. 17, 2016
September -- the seventh month
September had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in the sixth month of God called Elul, 15th day
These 2 verses below indicated to us Elul must be the 6th month
Neh. 6  So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, אֱלוּל in fifty and two days.
Neh. 7  So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.

We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath like they did in the Book of Acts.
Acts: 13  And after the reading of the law and the prophets…
Luke 24  And Yeshua said unto them, These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
The Word of God - Torah, Prophets and Writings (psalms)
Ta Na Kk is an acronym for:
T = Torah (law, teachings) - first 5 books of Moses
N = Navi' eem or prophets (pl. sounds like - Na vi eem)
K = Ke'tuvim or writings (psalms etc.)
At this point, there were neither gospels nor letters.
Why are we here today?
We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy
The 4th Commandment is a part of the covenant given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan
We read from law and the prophets every Sabbath.
60 times in the Gospels and letters it uses the word Sabbath
Ex. 20  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Today's topic: Bible 101 terms
Today I will give scripture references and you will have to read them in depth.
Adding and diminishing from God’s word
This is a salvation issue!
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.
Some things we have to be aware of:
The false image of Love
False ministers, brothers, sisters, any people
False feelings and emotions
False doctrines, bibles, religions, philosophies
Pseudo Jewish philosophies
False data, false histories, false pagan holidays, false drugs, prescriptions, remedies, false situations, propaganda, misinformation, disinformation, forged documents, fabrications, and misdirection, simply out, lies!
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?
When I speak to some people, they think it’s no big deal if people make things up, preach heresy, change dates in God’s feasts, sell the word of God, sell corrupt Bibles, sell trinkets that are not from Scripture. Then they have the nerve to make excuses for them.
Some wrong terms people use in the pseudo religious and secular world
Many say they are the New Testament church
They are wrong - Acts 2 were all Jews for every country to keep the Feast of weeks - Pentecost
Acts 2  And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
Many say - in the New Testament / Covenant?
The New Testament is not a set of books - The old and new testaments are not two “dividing” books, not two Gods, not two understandings.
Heb. 8:8 -12: For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
Who was the New Testament / Covenant given to, Gentiles? No, Israel
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith Yehovah; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Jer. 31:31-37: Behold, the days come, saith Yehovah, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith Yehovah: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith Yehovah, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yehovah: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith Yehovah; for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Thus saith Yehovah, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; Yehovah of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith Yehovah, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
Pseudo gentile church replaced Israel? Never!
Thus saith Yehovah; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith Yehovah.
No more animal blood needed
Luke 22:20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. Now Messiah’s blood
Many say - In the Old Testament / Covenant?
The Old Testament is not a set of books
The Old Testament or covenant pertains to the Levitical priesthood (part of the Law) and all its sacrifices (animal blood), priest’s services and temple services, etc...
Exod.24  And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which Yehovah hath made with you concerning all these words.
Many say the Renewed Covenant
Not renewed, but new!
Learn some Hebrew and then some Hebrew grammar please
Renew is not New.
The word “renew” is a verb and the word “new” is an adjective.
In Hebrew, the adjective agree with the noun in gender. בְּרִית חֲדָשָׁה ־ feminine form
בְּרִית - covenant is a feminine noun and needs a feminine adjective. חֲדָשָׁה
If you know Hebrew a bit, the word renew has a patach ( _ ) under the first letter, chet and a tzareh ( .. ) under the second letter, dalet. חַדֵּשׁ
The word new in Hebrew has a kamatz (like a T -חָדָשׁ ) under both the chet and dalet.
Renew – a verb
חַדֵּשׁ chadash khaw-dash' - A primitive root; a verb - to rebuild: - renew, repair.
Many use the word Christian today?
What was the original meaning of the word Christian?
Remember, there was neither Protestants before 1500 AD nor Catholics at the time of Messiah Yeshua.
Messiah - מְשִיחַ
The English word Christian below means Messiah followers, not Protestants or Catholics.
Messiah followers: מְשִׁיחִ י מְשִׁיחִיִּים
Acts 11[ 26] And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Acts 26 [ 28] Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
1Pet.4  Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
Name Yeshua means Zeus and is pagan?
The name Yeshua does not come from the name Zeus. These two words do not sound alike.
etymology: The origin and historical development of a linguistic form as shown by determining its basic elements, earliest known use, and changes in form and meaning, tracing its transmission from one language to another, identifying its cognates in other languages, and reconstructing its ancestral form where possible
As you can see, there is no etymological relationship between these two words.
It is clearly seen that different letters are used in the spelling of these two words.
Here are the English, Greek, then English transliterations and sounds
Yeshua - Ιησους Iisous pronounced ee-ay-sooce
Zeus - Ζευς Zeys pronounced Zeys
In short, I suggest you learn some Greek before you make this foolish argument
The LORD / GOD - should be YHVH / Yehovah, sometimes Yah
Many say Yeshua changed all things?
Yeshua said - Matt.5  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Some say, so I will be least in the kingdom of heaven if I sin, who cares?
Matt.5 19] Whosoever therefore shall "break" one of these least commandments, and shall "teach" men so, he shall be "called" the least"
"in (by them in) the kingdom of heaven ": but "whosoever shall do ( commandments ) and teach them", the same shall be "called great in (by them in) the kingdom of heaven .
Scripture tells us NO sin shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven; read it for yourself.
The Greek word “en” means in, by or with etc.
Some say Christ is the “end” of the law? No, the goal of the law
Rom.10  For Messiah is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.
Christ / Messiah is our GOAL
τελος telos - tel'-os
From a primary word τελλω tello (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly the point aimed at as a limit, the result
Some say God loves the sinner and hates the sin, wrong
Too any verses for this subject, here are 2 verses:
Pss.5  The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Some say there are Generational curses?
No generational curses in scripture
No one pays for the sins of someone else
Ezek. 18  Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord Yehovah: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth,
saith the Lord Yehovah: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
Deut. 24  The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers:every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
2 Kgs. 14  But the children of the murderers he slew not: according unto that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, wherein Yehovah commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
2 Chr. 25  But he slew not their children, but did as it is written in the law in the book of Moses (Deut. 24:16), where Yehovah commanded, saying, The fathers shall not die for the children, neither shall the children die for the fathers, but every man shall die for his own sin.
Read Ezek. Chapters 3, 18 and 33
Ezek. 18 - (No generational curses)
 The word of Yehovah
came unto me again, saying,
 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge?
 As I live, saith the Lord Yehovah, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.
 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
 And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,
 And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment;
 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man,
 Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord Yehovah.
 If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that doeth the like to any one of these things,
 And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife,
 Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath committed abomination,
 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him.
 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like,
 That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's wife,
 Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,
 That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.
 As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.
 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father?
When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.
 The soul that sinneth, it shall die.
The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:
the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.
 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.
 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord Yehovah: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?
 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live?
All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?
 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done shall he die.
 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
 Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of Yehovah is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?
 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord Yehovah. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
 For I have no pleasure in the
death of him that dieth, saith the Lord Yehovah: wherefore
turn yourselves, and live ye.
Many say, don’t judge me brother / sister
We are Gods – meaning we are God’s judges to use God’s word to judge all things righteously.
We do not judge matters by ourselves
Again, we are gods, judges with God's Word to judge righteously
Yeshua said: John 7  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Lev. 19  Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
There are many other verses
Most pseudo Christians and Messianics mistranslate Rom. 14 and Col. 2:16
These scriptures below Paul is warning the Colossians and us today to "watch out for evil men" outside the body of true believers trying to change God’s word.
 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;
 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;
 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
 And this I
say, lest any man should beguile you with
 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Messiah.
 As ye have
therefore received Messiah Yeshua the Lord, so walk
ye in him:
 Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Messiah.
 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Messiah:
 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Let no man (outside the body of Messiah) therefore
judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new
moon, or of the sabbath days:
 Which are a shadow of things to come; (future tense) but the body is of Messiah.
 Let no man (outside the body of Messiah) beguile you of your reward in a
voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which
he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
 And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.
 Wherefore if ye be dead with Messiah from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,
 (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
 Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?
 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.
These scriptures below have nothing to do with the Sabbath. These scriptures are talking about food, the clean and unclean, also fasting.
No Sabbath issue here.
These Scriptures below are NOT talking about the 4th Commandment, the Sabbath.
Rom.14 -  Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.
 For none
of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself.
 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
 For to this end Messiah both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Messiah.
 For it is
written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every
tongue shall confess to God.
 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Yeshua, that there is nothing unclean of itself (of the foods God told us to eat): but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean.
 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Messiah died.
 Let not then
your good be evil spoken of:
 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
 For he that in these things serveth Messiah is acceptable to God, and approved of men.
 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence.
 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Many say let’s go to church? No, church is not a building
εκκλησια ekklesia - ek-klay-see'-ah
Total KJV Occurrences: 116
church, 77 - churches, 36 - assembly, 3
A calling out, a public meeting of believers in Messiah Yeshua – assembly
An assembly of the people convened for worship in a religious meeting
The whole body of believers scattered throughout the earth.
In the past - Who was taken first and left?
The “left behind” books, series is wrong
At the end - Who will be taken first and who went after?
Gen. 5, 6 - The world was taken, Noah and his family was left.
Matt.24  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,[ 39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away ; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Matt.13  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
 Then Yeshua sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Here is some news from June 23, 2015
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A San Francisco high school may be the first in the country to offer an LGBT studies course.
The course will cover terminology, and the broad history of LGBT issues.
“We’ll look at what it’s been like for gay men, what it’s been like for lesbian women, what it’s been like for transgender people,” Ruth Asawa High School Social Studies teacher Lyndsey Schlax said.
Schlax has been working with human rights activist Cleve Jones, who was mentored by San Francisco’s Harvey Milk. The curriculum stretches back to ancient times.
****“Twenty eight percent of our students identify as LGBTQ,” Schlax said. The class begins this fall.
Here is some news from June 26, 2015
GAY DAY: SUPREMES APPROVE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE
Does this change God’s word? NO!
Can there be homosexual or transgender / trans-sexual priests, ministers or rabbis or anyone for that matter?
First, Yeshua said call NO ONE rabbi which means master, not teacher
Scripture says: Homosexuality - effeminate, lesbianism and bestiality are Sins.
In 2016 , there are endless debates about transvestite bathrooms. You can look them up on the net.
Not scriptural, evil
Deut.23  There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.
לֹא־תִהְיֶה קְדֵשָׁה , מִבְּנוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל
קְדֵשָׁה fem. Gender
קָדֵשׁ mas. Gender
Both words above can take on the meaning of men or women with multiple partners of men, women, animals, or all.
Gen. 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before Yehovah exceedingly.
Lev.18  Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Lev.20  If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Exod. 22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
Deut.22  The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto Yehovah thy God.
By the way, Rehoboam’s mother was Naamah an Ammonitess, and he was a King!
1Kgs.14  And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which Yehovah did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess.
 And Judah did evil in the sight of Yehovah, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.
 For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.

Rom.1: Because that, when they knew God, they
glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their
imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (lesbianism)
 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (Homosexuality between men)
 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
 Being filled with
all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full
of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
1Tim. 1 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
In use since the 1990s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB, which itself started replacing the term gay when in reference to the LGBT community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s as many felt the term gay community did not accurately represent all those to whom it referred.
The initialism has become main stream as a self-designation and has been adopted by the majority of sexuality and gender identity-based community centers and media in the United States and some other English-speaking countries.
The phrase is also used in some other countries, in whose languages the initialism is meaningful, such as France and Argentina.
The initialism LGBT is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures and is sometimes used to refer to anyone who is non-heterosexual or non-cisgender instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.
To recognize this inclusion, a popular variant adds the letter Q for those who identify as queer or are questioning their sexual identity as LGBTQ, recorded since 1996.
Some intersex people who want to be included in LGBT groups suggest an extended initialism LGBTI, and this initialism is used in all parts of "The Activist's Guide" of the Yogyakarta Principles in Action .
Some people combine the two acronyms and use the term LGBTIQ. Furthermore, the initialism LGBTIH has seen use in India to encompass the hijra identity and related subculture.
More recently, the catch-all terms GSM ("Gender & Sexual Minorities"), or "Gender and Sex/uality Minorities" for those who include intersexuality), GSRM ("Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities”) and GSD ("Gender and Sexual Diversity") have been proposed.
Whether or not LGBT people openly identify themselves may depend on whether they live in, as they put it, a discriminatory environment, as well as on the status of LGBT rights where they live.
