Shabbat Shalom שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם
Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s.
Today is May 11, 2013
May -- Maia's month - Maia is the goddess of spring, known as the great one, the daughter of Faunus, and wife of Vulcan
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now at the end of the 2nd month of God called Ziv / Zif, the 30th day
1Kgs.6 - ziv - brightness, (figuratively) the month of flowers
***I hope you changed your Judaism calendars – The 2nd month is not Iyyar as Judaism states, it is Ziv.

We were told to count the "Sabbaths" not omers
So we are counting
Today is the sixth Sabbath out of the seven Sabbaths we were told to count.
Judaism, some Messianics and some Protestant Messianics are counting the “omer”.
They still cannot follow the scriptures correctly. They follow each other.
For your information: An "omer"עמר is a "sheaf" of barley, a dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)
Here is where it says to count Sabbaths Lev.23 
Simple isn’t it?
**Remember, This coming Feast has 3 names:
Feast of Weeks, Hag Sh'vu-ot - חַג שָׁבֻעֹת
Feast of Harvest (wheat) Hag ha katseer - חַג הַקָּצִיר
Pentecost πεντηκοστή - pentēkoste
This feast is 50 days from First Fruits and the resurrection of Messiah
From slaves in Egypt to the people of God
From the receiving of Torah / Law, to the receiving the Holy Spirit
How will you behave yourselves these 50 days? (Physically and Spiritually)

 In the third month,(Sivan), when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
 For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.
 And Moses
went up unto God, and Yehovah called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus
shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;
 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.
 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people:
for all the earth is mine:
 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.
These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which Yehovah commanded him.
 And all the people answered together, and said, All that Yehovah hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto Yehovah.
 And Yehovah said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever.
And Moses told the words of the people unto Yehovah.
 And Yehovah said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,
 And be ready against the third day: for the third day Yehovah will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.
Are you ready to do this?
This book of the law is so important
 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for Yehovah thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.
 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only Yehovah thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.
 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death:
only be strong and of a good courage.
בּרית - ber-eeth, covenant
An ordinance, alliance, pledge treaty, league, agreement
And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem,
and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges,
and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith Yehovah God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.
 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.
 I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.
 And when they cried unto Yehovah, he put darkness between you and the
gyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.
 And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.
 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
And ye went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought
against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and
the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites,
the Hivites, and the Jebusites;
and I delivered them into your hand.
 And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
 Now therefore fear Yehovah, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye Yehovah.
 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.
 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake Yehovah, to serve other gods;
 For Yehovah our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:
 And Yehovah drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve Yehovah; for he is our God.
 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve Yehovah: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
 If ye forsake Yehovah, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.
 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve Yehovah.
 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you Yehovah, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.
Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods
which are among you, and incline your heart unto Yehovah God of Israel.
 And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.
 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of Yehovah.
 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of Yehovah which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.
 So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.
 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Yehovah, died, being an hundred and ten years old.
 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnath-serah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.
 And Israel served Yehovah all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of Yehovah, that he had done for Israel.
 And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.
 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a hill that pertained to Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim.
Only be strong and of a good courage
Remember: The Feast of Weeks is a Sabbath on May 19th, Sunday
