Today, we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s,
today is March 20, 2021 – first day of Spring
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.
The Gregorian calendar
When did January 1 become the first day of the New Year?
March was the original beginning of the year in some previous calendars.
January 1 had become the first day of the New Year when Julius Caesar (100 B.C.E.-44 B.C.E.) reorganized the Roman calendar and made it solar rather than lunar in the year 45 B.C.E. and moved the beginning of the year to January 1.
When the Gregorian calendar was introduced in 1582, January 1 continued to be recognized as the first day of the year in most places.
However, in England and the American colonies, March 25, intended to represent the spring equinox, was the beginning of their year. Under this system, March 24, 1700, was followed by March 25, 1701.
In 1752, the British government changed the beginning date of the year to January 1.
Then we have Judaism’s made up New Year’s Babylonian month … Tishri (in the Judaism calendar) the first month of the civil year and seventh of the religious year, usually coinciding with parts of September and October of the Gregorian calendar.
Yehovah God has His own calendar, which is deleted from the world
We are now in the 1st month in the scriptures called ha Aviv or Nisan
Exod.13  This day came you out in the month Abib. – ha Aviv
Esth.3  In the first month, that is, the month Nisan…

Finally, we need to finish our work for God
Finish: Διανύω - dianuō - dee-an-oo'-o : to effect; “to accomplish thoroughly”.
 … 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 sows 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 sows 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.
 And it came to pass, that when Yeshua had finished these parables, he departed thence.
… it came to pass, that when Yeshua had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan;  And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there.
 … it came to pass, when Yeshua had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,  Ye know that after two days is the feast of the Passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sits not down first, and counts the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?  Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,  Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.
 Or what king, going to
make war against another king, sits not down first, and consults whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against
him with twenty thousand?
 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends an ambassage, (embassage, embassies, the business or message of an envoy, ambassador.) and desires conditions of peace.
 So likewise, whosoever there is of you that forsake not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
 In the mean while his
disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that you know not of.
 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
 Yeshua said unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
 … I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.
John 17 - Yeshua’s prayer to the Father while He was on earth
 These words spoke Yeshua, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father,
the hour is come; glorify your Son, that your Son also may glorify you:
 As you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him.
 And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah, whom you have sent.
 I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do.
 And now, O Father,
glorify you me with your own self with the glory which I had with you before
the world was.
 I have manifested your name unto the men which you gave me out of the world: yours they were, and you gave them me; and they have kept your word.
 Now they have known that all things whatsoever you have given me are of you.
 For I have given unto them the words which you gave me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from you, and they have believed that you didst send me.
 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which you have given me; for they are yours.
 And all mine are your, and your are mine; and I am glorified in them.
 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you have given me that they may be one, as we are.
 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name: those that you gave me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
 And now come I to you; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
 I have given them your word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
 I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil.
 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
 Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth.
 As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
 That they all may be one; as you, Father, art in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me.
 And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
 I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me.
 Father, I will that they also, whom you have given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which you have given me: for you loved me before the foundation of the world.
 O righteous Father, the world hath not known you: but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me.
 And I have declared unto them your name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
 When Yeshua therefore had received the vinegar, he said, it is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
 … when they were come to
him, Paul said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia,
after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
 Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:
 And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have showed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,
 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
 And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:
 Save that the Holy Ghost witnesses in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.
 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Yeshua, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
 And now, behold, I know
that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my
face no more.
 Wherefore I take you to record this day that I am pure from the blood of all men.
 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over that which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.  Therefore watch…
 And when we had finished our course from Tyre, we came to Ptolemais, and saluted the brethren, and abode with them one day.
 For Yeshua will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.
2 Tim. 4
 I Paul have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:  henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
 …. the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
 Looking unto Yeshua the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.
 Let no man say when he
is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither
tempts he any man:
 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
 Then when lust hath conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings forth death.
 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as He hath declared to his servants the prophets.
 … I will give power unto
my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore
days, clothed in sackcloth.
 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
 These have power to shut heaven that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
 And their dead bodies shall lie in
the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt,
where also our Lord was crucified.
 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Finally: λοιπόν loipon loy-pon' : something remaining (adverb): - besides, finally, furthermore, (from) henceforth, moreover, now, + it remains, then.
 Finally, brethren, farewell.
Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
 Greet one another with an holy kiss.
 All the saints salute you.
 The grace of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
 Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
 But that you also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that you might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Yeshua the Messiah in sincerity. Amen.
Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the
Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous
but for you it is safe.
 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, and beware of the concision.
 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in the Messiah Yeshua, and have no confidence in the flesh.
 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinks that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more:
Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin,
an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for the Messiah.
 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellence knowledge of the Messiah Yeshua my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win the Messiah,
 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of the Messiah, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of the Messiah Yeshua.
 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in the Messiah Yeshua.
 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing you be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as you have us for an ensample.
 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of the Messiah:
 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Yeshua the Messiah:
 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
 Finally, brethren (and sisters), whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
 Those things, which you have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein you were also careful, but you lacked opportunity.
 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
 I know both how to be abased, and I
know how to abound: everywhere and in all things I am instructed both to be
full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
 I can do all things through the Messiah which strengthens me.
 Notwithstanding you have well done, that you did communicate with my affliction.
 Now you Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but you only.
 For even in Thessalonica you sent once and again unto my necessity.
 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God.
 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by the Messiah Yeshua.
 Now unto God and our Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.
 Salute every saint in the Messiah Yeshua. The brethren who are with me greet you.
 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
 The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with you all. Amen.
Finally, brethren, pray for us, that
the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with
 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
 But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.
 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you that you both do and will do the things which we command you.
 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for the Messiah.
 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
 For yourselves know how you ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
 Neither did we eat any man's bread for naught; but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
 But you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
 And if any man obeys not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
 The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
 The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with you all. Amen.
 Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that you are thereunto called, that you should inherit a blessing.
 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
 And who is he that will harm you, if you be followers of that which is good?
 But and if you suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are you: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in the Messiah.
 For it is better, if the will of God
be so, that you suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.
 For the Messiah also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah:
 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
End - Τέλος telos tel'-os:From a primary word τέλλω tellō (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly the point aimed at as a limit, that is, (by implication) the conclusion of an act or state, result – finally.
us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his
commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
