Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s
Today is December 17th, 2016
December -- the 10th month – now the 12th month
Middle English decembre
Old French decembre
Latin december "tenth month"
Latin decem "ten" + -ber (adj. suffix)
December had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in the 9th month called Chislev - day 17, of the God of Israel
Zech.7  And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of Yehovah came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chislev; לַ חֹדֶשׁ הַתְּשִׁעִי־־בְּ כִסְלֵו
A part of December 2016 / January 2017
“Tis the season to be pagan” is already around us!
I am reminded always to inform you to beware of: The false image of love, false emotions,, false feelings, false thoughts, false accusations, imaginations, loneliness, depression, financial drain, more debt, and suicide or murder.
Also be aware of the artificial false festival lights they put up. Satan really sets the stage for you.
Beware if you feel or hear a voice telling you to separate yourself from the congregation, go off on your own and read or whatever.
Scripturally speaking, there are no holy days, or holidays in the 9th month called Chislev – Pope Gregory’s December

Let’s talk a little about Chanukah
Feast of the Dedication is not the Chanukah of today.
Remember these points:
1. Chanukah in Hebrew means dedication pertaining to the Temple not a battle
2. There is no Temple (destroyed in 70 AD)
3. Wrong month, should be Adar which is Feb. / March (Winter ends March 21th) (Ezra 6:14, 15)
4. No 8 days of oil in the book of Maccabees
5. No 8 or 9 candlestick menorah in Scripture (only 7 and very important )
Scripture says: John.10  And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter  And Yeshua walked in the temple in Solomon's porch.
In the scriptures above, pertaining to Chanukah / dedication, John was talking about Solomon's temple that Ezra help rebuild.
(1 Kings 8:2; 2 Chr. 5:3) Also please read the scriptures below in Ezra, chapter 6.
Ezra.6: And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.
 And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, (our Feb. / March - cold - neither Nov. nor Dec.), which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.
 And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the rest
of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God with
 And offered at the dedication of this house of God an hundred bullocks, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs; and for a sin offering for all Israel, twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel.
Esth.3  In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar. (Feb. neither Nov. nor Dec.)
Chanukah is a Hebrew word meaning dedication because this observance marks the rededication and building of the Temple after it had been desecrated.
Also remember: The first dedication was in the 7th month, ha Ethanim, 1 Kings 8:2 - (Sept. /Oct.) neither Nov. nor Dec.
1 Kgs.8: And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month ha Ethanim, which is the seventh month.
 And Solomon offered a sacrifice of peace offerings, which he offered unto Yehovah, two and twenty thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the children of Israel "dedicated" the house of Yehovah. וַיַּחְנְכוּ
Another common made up name for this made-up feast is Hag Ha-orim, which means 'the Feast of Lights'.
It is found in the writings of Josephus, who was a first Century Jewish historian.
This second name, however, is also based upon a tradition. Supposedly, when the Jews rededicated the Temple and wanted to rekindle the lamp stand, they found only enough oil for one day. It would take 8 days to make a new supply they decided to kindle and burn the remaining oil, a miracle occurred as the oil that was enough for only one day lasted for eight days ... thus, the term representing, "the Feast of Lights”.
This is why the Chanukah menorah has eight candles, (which is unscriptural) instead of the seven candle sticks the scriptural menorah has.
****They made 8 candles to commemorate this made up miracle.
The made-up feast of today, Chanukah, is not found anywhere in the Scriptures, as it originated during the time of history “after” the Book of Malachi.
It should be remembered that none of the historical books mention this fake miracle, as it originates with the "Talmud" and not in any book of the Holy Scriptures.
The historical books that speak of the Maccabean revolt as a real event are in the uninspired "Catholic" I and 2 Maccabees and they make no mention of any miracle of 8 days of oil at all!!!!!!
I hope you can understand, it is fact that this made-up feast is recorded in rabbinic writings not found in the Holy Scriptures. I have the Talmud to prove this.
Read the Talmud - Mas. Shabbath 21b yourselves if you care
Here is purported Tradition from the net
This is what you will hear from tradition, which is neither here or there.
Around 200 BCE Jews lived as an autonomous people in the land of Israel, which at this time was controlled by the Seleucid King of Syria. The Jewish people paid taxes to Syria and accepted its legal authority, and by and large were free to follow their own faith, maintain their own jobs, and engage in trade.
By 180 BCE Antiochus IV Epiphanies ascended to the Seleucid throne. At first little changed, but under his reign Jews were gradually forced to violate the precepts of their faith. Jews rebelled at having to do this. Under the reign of Antiochus IV, the Temple in Jerusalem was looted, Jews were massacred, and Judaism was effectively outlawed.
In 167 BCE Antiochus ordered an altar to Zeus erected in the Temple. Mattathias, a Jewish priest, and his five sons John, Simon, Eleazar, Jonathan, and Judah led a rebellion against Antiochus. Judah became known as Judah Maccabe (Judah the Hammer).
By 166 BCE Mattathias had died, and Judah took his place as leader. By 165 BCE the Jewish revolt against the Seleucid monarchy was successful. The Temple was liberated and rededicated.
The festival of Chanukah was instituted by Judah Maccabee and his brothers to celebrate this event. (1 Macc. iv. 59)
After having recovered Jerusalem and the Temple, Judah ordered the Temple to be cleansed, a new altar to be built in place of the polluted one, and new holy vessels to be made. When the fire had been kindled anew upon the altar and the lamps of the candlestick lit, the dedication of the altar was celebrated for eight days amid sacrifices and songs (1 Macc. iv. 36).
No miracle of oil here!
Judah Machabee made his own feast up – sound familiar?
The First book of Maccabees is a book written in Hebrew by a Jewish author after the restoration of an independent Jewish kingdom, about the latter part of the 2nd century BC. In modern-day Judaism, the book is often of great historical interest, but has no official religious status.
The 2 Maccabees focuses on the Jews' revolt against Antiochus IV Epiphanes and concludes with the defeat of the Syrian general Nicanor in 161 BC by Judas Maccabeus, the hero of the work.
These books were not included in the Hebrew Bible, but they are part of the Apocrypha, a group of Jewish writing from this period that was preserved by the Christian Church. (Catholic)
Praying for the dead is belief held by the Catholic Church and others
2 Machabees 12 44 (For if he had not hoped that they that were slain should rise again, it would have seemed superfluous and vain to pray for the dead,)
2 Machabees 12 46 It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead , that they may be loosed from sins.
2 Machabees 12 43 And making a gathering, he sent twelve thousand drachms of silver to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be offered for the sins of the dead , thinking well and religiously concerning the resurrection, 44 (For if he had not hoped that they that were slain should rise again, it would have seemed superfluous and vain to pray for the dead,) 45 And because he considered that they who had fallen asleep with godliness, had great grace laid up for them. 46 It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead , that they may be loosed from sins .
Do you think Yeshua or Daniel quoted from these books? Never!
A number of historians believe that the reason for the eight day celebration was that the first Chanukah was in effect a belated celebration of the festival of Sukkoth, the Feast of Tabernacles (2 Macc. x. 6 and i. 9).
During the war, the Jews were not able to celebrate Sukkoth properly.
Sukkoth also lasts for eight days, and was a holy day in which the lighting of lamps played a prominent part during the Second Temple period (Suk.v. 2-4).
Lights were also kindled in the household, and the popular name of the festival was, therefore, according to Josephus (Jewish Antiquities xii. 7, § 7) the "Festival of Lights."
The Rabbis, years later commemorated this miracle that occurred, then decided to make this holiday more special so they designed a special menorah in which eight candles plus the 9th the Shamash candle were represented instead of the usual 7 candle lamp stand in the temple.
'From that came the concept of the eight days of Chanukah, which actuality is merely a copying of the Feast of Tabernacles which has 8 days.
Remember there is "NO" commandment from God to "light candles" on this made up feast or the Holy Shabbat.
If you light candles on the Shabbat or any other day, it is fine as long as you DON'T say it is a commandment.
As a further embellishment, they put this made-up feast, Chanukah at the same time the gentile children were getting presents, December 25, Xmas.
Now all the Jewish children can get presents and not feel left out.
We want the Truth
Truth brings division, a parting, disunion, dissension
Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hates you.
1 John 3  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.
 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hates you.
John 15  If the
world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 
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 word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
 But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.
 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.
 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
Stand for truth! Don’t be offended by the Word
In all aspects of your life
Look up the words “truth”, "stand" and “offend “in scripture
Here are a few verses:
1 Cor. 16  Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.  Let all your things be done with charity.
1 Cor. 2  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Phil. 4  Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
Col. 4  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Messiah, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
1 Thes. 3  For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.
2 Thes. 2  Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
2 Tim. 2  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his.
And, Let every one that nameth the name of Messiah depart from iniquity.
1 Pet. 5  By Silvanus, a faithful brother unto you, as I suppose, I have written briefly, exhorting, and testifying that this is the true grace of God wherein ye stand.
Please do not follow any made up traditions, feasts or events – that are actually embellished lies.
We are commanded by God
Learn not the way of the heathen
Jer.10  Thus saith Yehovah, Learn not the way of the heathen , and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.  For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.
 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
Jer. 16  Yehovah, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.
Shabbat Shalom – be safe
Below, Sabbath info, if needed…
I always feel I need to mention that the Sabbath is not "a service" for an hour and a half, but the Sabbath is a "whole 24 hr. day" to the God of Israel, the 4th Commandment.
The word Sabbath is "60 times" in the Gospels and letters
Luke 23:56 below, calls the Sabbath a Commandment and a rest as in the 10 Commandments - Exodus 20 and Deut. 5
Luke 23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath day according to the commandment. (In - Exodus 20 and Deut. 5)
Question: S0 why are we here today?
Answer: We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy
The Sabbath is the 4th Commandment and part of the “covenant” given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan
Ex. 20  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
 Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
 For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Lev. 23  And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.
Within your gates - in all your dwellings
Unto this day, some people are still breaking the 4th commandment each week by not keeping the Sabbath as it is described above.
