All welcome

  Let’s pray


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

 Today is June 28th, 2014

June -- Juno's month

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

Juno is the principle goddess of the Roman Pantheon.

She is the goddess of marriage and the well-being of women.

She is the wife and sister of Jupiter. She is identified with the Greek goddess Hera.


God has His own calendar


We are now in the 3rd month called Sivan, 29th day

Esth.8 [9] Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan

I would love to come and give a talk at your congregation, school or home on the Jewish / Hebrew roots of your faith from the Scriptures, not Judaism.

This evening starts the new moon; we will be in the fourth month of God which has no biblical name in scripture.


Judaism uses the name Tammuz which is not the name of the 4th month. Tammuz is a false God. We are Jews that do not follow Judaism.


Today's Topic

Only two weeks after the Feast of Weeks, Pentecost

and again

Do you really know what born again means?

Do you really know what being converted is?

 Are you born again?

This may seem like a simple study however it is one of the most important studies.

Without being born again, converted, you will not see the kingdom of God.

Exod.16 [28] And Yehovah said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?


If people don't see you as a "new, converted" creature, you probably are not a new creature but the old man or woman that you always were doing and allowing the same old things. You just want to be liked.


Let's review a few words first:


G4762 στρέφω - strephō - stref'-o - Strengthened from the base of G5157; to twist, that is, turn quite around or reverse (literally or figuratively): - convert, turn (again, back again (to a child), self, self about). To turn, turn around, to turn one’s self , metaphorically to turn one’s self from one’s course of conduct, i.e. to change one’s mind

G5157 - τροπή -  tropē - trop-ay' - From an apparently primary word τρέπω trepō (to turn); a turn (“trope”), that is, revolution - turning.


David says:

Pss. 51 [10] Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

[13] Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

שׁוּב shûv - to return, turn back, of spiritual relations (figuratively), to turn back (to God), repent, to restore, refresh, repair (figuratively), reverse


Yeshua says:

Matt. 18 [3] And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


Peter says:

1 Pet. 1 [22] Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

[23] Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Are you a new creature, new man / woman?

2 Cor. 5 [17] Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.


Eph. 4 [24] And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.


Col. 3 [10] And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

Yeshua tells Simon Peter:

Luke. 22 [31] And Yehovah said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

[32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.


Simon Peter is now converted

He says:

Acts 3 [19] Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of Yehovah;

[20] And He (the Father) shall send Yeshua the Messiah, which before was preached unto you:

[21] Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

You should be able to make a conscience list of the things you are doing in your new life.

Here is a short list:

How do you honor the God of Israel?

How do you speak to others?

How do you treat people?

Do you allow sin in your camp?

Do you make concessions and give alibis, excuses for sin?

Do you have respect of persons in God’s judgments with relatives or friends?

How do you treat your real brothers and sisters?

How do you keep Sabbath or the feasts? Are they Holy, set apart to the God of Israel?

How do you dress? What do you look like?

How do you act before others?

Where do you like to go?

What do you like to do?

What type of people do you like to be around?

What do you eat, drink or smoke?

Make your own list


Yeshua broke down the Law and the Prophets which contain the 10 Commandments as well as any other commandment in Torah like this:


How do you treat God and how do you treat your neighbors (in the God of Israel).


Mat 22: 35-40

Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
[36] Master, which is the great commandment in the law - TaNaKh?

[37] Yeshua said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
[38] This is the first and great commandment.
[39] And the second is like unto it, Thou
shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
[40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. TaNaKh

Exod.16 [4] Then said Yehovah unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

John.14 [15] If ye love me, keep my commandments.

John.15 [10] If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

Prov.3 [1] My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

Prov.4 [4] He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

Prov.7 [2] Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

1 John.2 [4] He that saith, I know Him (God), and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.


I have a few questions

Did you take hold of the Yehovah’s Covenant yet?

Have you been "joined" to Yehovah, the God of Israel yet?

Are you sojourning among the people of the God of Israel truly?


Yeshua said, (paraphrased)

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man or woman be born again, they cannot see the kingdom of God.

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man or woman be born of water and of the Spirit, they cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.


Some people desire to be teachers of the law, Torah, understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm, Saul says below.

Saul encountered much opposition:

1Tim.1 [1] Paul, an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Yeshua the Messiah, which is our hope;
[2] Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Yeshua the Messiah our Lord.
[3] As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
[4] Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
[5] Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
[6] From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
[7] Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.


Saul encountered much opposition:

Rom.16 [17] Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Eph.4 [14] That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;


1Tim.4 [1] Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2] Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
[3] Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4] For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5] For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
6] If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Yeshua the Messiah, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
7] But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.


1Tim.6 [1] Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.
2] And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.

[3] If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4] He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5] Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.


2 Pet. 2 [1] But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
[2] And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
[3] And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.


2 Tim. 4 [1] I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3] For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.


Heb.13 [9] Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.


Paul reminds us:

2 Cor. 11 [26]He was in perils among false brethren;

Gal. 2 [4] And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Messiah Yeshua, that they might bring us into bondage:

I am reminded:

1Pet.5 [8] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Matt.4 [3] And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

1Thes.3 [5] For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.


Give no place to the devil

Eph.4 [27] Neither give place to the devil.

Prince of the power of the air is a spirit

Eph.2 [2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:


The Angel of light, Satan’s ministers in congregations, beware!


2 Cor.11 [14] And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.[15] Therefore it is no great thing if his (satan's) ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;

1Pet.5 [8] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Matt.4 [3] And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

1Thes.3 [5] For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.

Num.17 [10] And Yehovah said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's rod again before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not.

Ezek.20 [38] And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am Yehovah


 The Yehovah’s covenants are like His marriage contracts – binding!


Gen.2 [20] And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

[21] And the Yehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

[22] And the rib, which the Yehovah God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

[23] And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

[24] Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.


Matt.19 [4] ...Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

[5] And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain (2) shall be one flesh?

[6] Wherefore they are no more twain (2), but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.


Jer.3 [14] Turn, O backsliding children, saith the Yehovah; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

[15] And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

[16] And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Yehovah, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the Yehovah: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

[17] At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Yehovah; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Yehovah, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

[18] In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers.

In closing:

Are you really born again?

 Are you really converted?

Or are you

Luke.22 [48], betraying thou the Son of man with a kiss?

You are so nice, NOT


Some people think that are good actors and feign themselves just men

Luke.20 [19] And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them. [20] And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor.


 Without being born again, converted, you will not see the kingdom of God.

Saved from what?

Rom.5 [9]… being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him

It is good to always examine and prove yourselves

 2 Cor. 13 [5] Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Yeshua the Messiah is in you, except ye be reprobates?

 1 Thes. 5 [21] Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.


Shabbat Shalom
