Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s,
March 5, 2016
March -- Mars' month
Middle English March(e)
Old English Martius
Latin Martius "of Mars"
Latin Marti(s) "Mars" + -us (adj. suffix)
Latin Martius mensis "month of Mars"
Martius has always had 31 days.
March was the original beginning of the year, and the time for the resumption of war.
Mars is the Roman god of war. He is identified with the Greek god Ares.
Yehovah has His own calendar

Choices, decisions we make
Our lives are full of choices.
What school to attend
What job, business or career to have
What bank, food mart, gas station
What travels to go on
What religion to be a part of
What to eat
Who to marry
Who to associate with
What house, apartment, city, state to reside in.
What clothing to wear
What hobbies to have
What recreational activities to participate in
And all the rest I did not list - J
The scriptures are full of choices people have made, from the time of Adam and Eve, Noah, Samuel, Kings, Judges, the Prophets and all the writings.
We see the consequences that we are left with.
The Scriptures have many examples of what to do and not to do.
Again choices we must decide.
John_13:15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
1Ti_4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
Heb_4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
1Pe 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
1Co_10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
All choices and decisions we make have consequences, some good and some bad.
The choices we made in the past led us to where we are today whether you like it or not, know it or don’t know.
We all can say at this time: If only we had the wisdom of an older person when we were younger to decide, choose.
Parents were supposed to help with our decisions, choices.
Sad to say, most families are without the God of Israel and His Words, the scriptures.
The family unit is just about gone. No longer two parents.
In these days, one parent, mostly the mother is left who works and tries to raise the children. Most fathers are gone.
In these days two females or two males raise the kids. L
Most children are left to daycare centers all day, too many children, no discipline; kids are left to decide, make choices on their own.
I hear in the news, kids are threatening the teachers in schools which is a bid problem. Drugs, alcohol, peer pressure, bullies, vulgar language, sexual activities and the rest are always there to help kids make the wrong choices.
Some websites, television shows, magazines don’t help people in the choices of how to dress, talk and carry themselves.
I wonder what guidance counselors are doing in schools, there are to help.
Sometimes you may be talked into a choice, pressured or left with no other option. Ask counsel.
However you made the choice, there are still ramifications, consequences which we will have to deal with.
Godly counsel may help in your decisions, choices.
Soon you will have to choose a new president.
Look up counsel in the scriptures, there are many verses to help you decide, choose.
Here are a few:
Exo_18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:
Jdg_18:5 And they said unto him, Ask counsel, we pray thee, of God, that we may know whether our way which we go shall be prosperous.
Pro_11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Pro_12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Pro_15:22 Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established.
Pro_19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
Pro_20:18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
Pro_24:6 For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy war: and in multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Pro_27:9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
Ecc_8:2 I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.
There are so many verses where Yehovah chooses.
Here are a few:

Deu_21:5 And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them Yehovah thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the name of Yehovah; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried:
1Ki_11:32 (But he shall have one tribe for my servant David's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel:)
1Ki_11:36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.
1Ch_15:2 Then David said, None ought to carry the ark of God but the Levites: for them hath Yehovah chosen to carry the ark of God, and to minister unto him for ever.

Jos_24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve Yehovah, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve Yehovah.

11 For when David was up in the morning, the word of Yehovah came unto the prophet Gad, David's seer, saying,
12 Go and say unto David, Thus saith Yehovah, I offer thee three things; choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.
13 So Gad came to David, and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days' pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.
14 And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let us fall now into the hand of Yehovah; for his mercies are great: and let me not fall into the hand of man.
15 So Yehovah sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba seventy thousand men.

5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to Yehovah, to serve him, and to love the name of Yehovah, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

Joh_15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Remember: the choices we make today, will decide our future
