 Letís pray

Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500ís.

Today is July 6, 2013

July -- Julius Caesar's month

Middle English Julie
Latin Julius "Julius"
Latin Julius mensis "month of Julius"
Latin quintilis mensis "fifth month"

Quintilis (and later Julius) has always had 31 days.

Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.

----------------------------------------------------

Yehovah has His own calendar

We are now in the 4th month, 26th day (this month has no name)

Judaism calls the 4 month Tammuz which is made up Ė adding to the Word

The only verse for Tammuz in the Scriptures is:

Ezek.8[ 14] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Yehovah's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz - ( a pagan deity ) מְבַכּוֹת אֶת־הַ תַּמּוּז - a Sumerian deity of food or vegetation, a Phoenician deity

--------------------

Tuesday evening is the new moon, the 5th month of God will begin which has no name. Wednesday is the 1st †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Judaism made up the name AV (father?) and they say they have a civil year and religious year. They say AV is the eleventh month of the civil year, and fifth month of the religious year. Wrong!

 

The fifth month has "No Name" in Scripture


Yehovah only has "ONE CALENDAR".

 

Deut. 11 [12] A land which Yehovah thy God careth for: the eyes of Yehovah thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

-----------------------------

 

Today's Topic: Let's get back to the beginning

 

No lies, just truth

John.1[1] In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

 

Yeshua said:

 

John 8 [25] Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Yeshua / Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.

[44] Ye (the scribes and Pharisees) are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.

He (the devil) was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him (the devil).

When he (the devil) speaketh a lie, he (the devil) speaketh of his own: for he (the devil) is a liar, and the father of it.

 

1 John 3 [8]

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. [11] For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.

-----------

Col. 3 ] Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

--------

Judaism made up the name AV and is a lie

Prov. 30 [6] Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Should we call the 5th month AV? No!

 

Adding to Godís Word is a lie

1 John 2 [21] I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that

no lie is of the truth.

------------

 

We want to "convert" back to "The truth" and get away from lies

 

Rom. 9 [1] I say the truth in Messiah, I lie not...

 

Dan. 10 - [21] But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth:

------------

Hos. 4 - [1] Hear the word of Yehovah, ye children of Israel: for Yehovah hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

------------

As I stated in last weekís study:

You shall not add unto the word, neither shall you diminish ought from it.

--

Deut. 4 [2] Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of Yehovah your God which I command you.

 

Deut. 12 [32] What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

 

Deut. 5 [22] These words Yehovah spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.

 

Prov. 30 [6] Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

 

Rev. 22

[18] For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book,

If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

[19] And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
------------

Lies are told every day in so many ways and are subliminally placed into your mind.

BEWARE!

------------

The truth

You can't come to the Father without the Real Messiah

and

you can't come to the Messiah without the Real Father

 

John 6 [44] Yeshua said... No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him:

John 14 [6] Yeshua said... no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

------------

John. 14 [6] Yeshua / Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:

 Josh.24 - [14 ] 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.

1Sam.12 - [24 ] Only fear Yehovah, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.

------------

Who is a liar?

John 8 [44] Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

 

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

[22] Who is a liar but he that denieth that Yeshua is the Messiah? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

 

1 John 4 [20] If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

All liars

Rev. 21 [8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

------------

The changing of times and laws

--------

God has His own months of the year and His own New Year

Num. 28 [14] And their drink offerings shall be half an hin of wine unto a bullock, and the third part of an hin unto a ram, and a fourth part of an hin unto a lamb: this is the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year.

Deut. 11 [12] A land which Yehovah thy God careth for: the eyes of Yehovah thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

1 Chr. 27 [1] Now the children of Israel after their number, to wit, the chief fathers and captains of thousands and hundreds, and their officers that served the king in any matter of the courses, which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year , of every course were twenty and four thousand.

--------

People ask me for a calendar from the scriptures all the time.

Jewish calendars have many wrong names for some months.

The Gregorian calendar (Pope Gregory from the 1500's, we use every day) is wrong.

--------

Letís clear up the calendar lies

Letís go over the names of the months from scripture.

 

All months are approximate, may overlap with the next one

 

God's Months

Beginning of the year

The "REAL" and only one - Rosh Ha Shanah

רֹאשׁ הַשָּׁנָה

Yehovah only has "ONE NEW YEAR"

The First month, Ha Aviv - Nisan

 

New Year - in Spring when all things are "new" again

1st month - Ha Aviv (the newness) - Nisan

Exod. 12 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

[2] This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

Exod. 13

[1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,
[2] Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
[3] And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yehovah brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.

[4] This day came ye out in the month (ha Aviv) Abib.

(Around March - Spring)


Esth. 3 [7] In the first month, that is, the month Nisan

------------

 2nd month - Ziv

1 Kgs. 6 [1] And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of Yehovah.

(Around April)

------------

3rd month - Sivan

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

 

(no scripture for the 4th, 5th and 6th months to show their names)

(Around May)

------------

4th month - Tammuz ? No!

Ezek. 8 [14] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Yehovah's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz - ( pagan deity ) a Sumerian deity of food or vegetation, a Phoenician deity

(Around June)

------------

5th month - Ab / Av? wrong - No name!

(Around July)

------------

6th month - Elul Ė not named in scripture, however it seems correct

Elul, seems like it is the name of the sixth month by the two verses below:

Neh.6 [15] So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days.

Neh.7[73] So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.

(Around August)

------------

7th month - Ha Ethanim

1 Kgs. 8 [2] And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.

(Around Sept)

------------

8th month - Bool

1 Kgs. 6 [38] And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month,

was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.

(Around Oct.)

------------

9th month - Chislev

Zech. 7 [1] 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 Chisleu;

(Around Nov.)

------------

10th month - Te'veth

Esth. 2 [16] So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign

(Around Dec.)

------------

11th month - She' bat

Zech. 1 [1] In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of Yehovah unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, [7] Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat

(Around Jan.)

------------

12th month - Adar

Esth. 3 [7] 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.

(Around Feb.)

--------------

 

We should ask for the old (everlasting) paths from the beginning

 

Jer. 6 [16] Thus saith Yehovah, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

 

Jer. 18 [15] Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the "ancient paths", to walk in paths, in a way not cast up; (not esteemed highly, not of God)

------------

"Be converted - return back to the God of Israel"

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.

---------------

Luke. 22 [32] But I (Yeshua) have prayed for thee (Peter), that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

 Pss. 51

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

 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 the Lord;

[20] And he 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. 

 

Col. 1 [12] Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 

[13] Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Delivered us - translated us

Ask for the old (everlasting) paths

 

If you want to know the end, read the beginning

 

Isa. 46 [10] Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

------------

Here are some interesting Hebrew word thoughts

We read:

Pss. 138 [2] I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

The Word

is above all thy name

 

then we see

Theבְּ is larger than the other letters in the Hebrew Text in Gen. 1:

In the beginning

We can see, it seems to say - the Word - בְּ ††(or the Son) is present

-------------

In the beginning

בְּרֵאשִׁית

Also every 3rd letter we see

א

ת

The first and the last letters of the Hebrew aleph bet

 

Are you with me? J

-----------------

The wordבְּרֵאשִׁית has 6 letters as also there are 6 days of creation

Gen. 1 [1] In the beginning Godאֱלֹהִים created the heaven and the earth.

בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ

The word אֱלֹהִים for God is in the absolute plural tense (meaning Gods)

-------------------

Chapter 2 has "Yehovah God" or YHVH Elohim in it

 

Godís Word, which is God created all things

 

Gen. 2

[4] These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Yehovah God יְהוָה אֱלֹהִים made the earth and the heavens,


[5] And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for Yehovah God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

-------------------------------

 

My point - in the beginning was the Word

John 1

[1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
[2] The same was in the beginning with God.
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.

[4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
[5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
[6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
[7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
[8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
[9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
[10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
[11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
[12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
[13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
[14] And
the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Heb.1 [10] And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

 

The Word - God - The Son all the same

Col. 1

[12] Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
[13] Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his
dear Son:
[14] In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

[15] Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
[16] For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:


[17] And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.


[18] And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
[19] For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;


[20] And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

-----------

So let's go back to the beginning

 

Gen. 1 [1] In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Num. 10 [10] Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am Yehovah your God.

Num. 28 [11] And in the beginnings of your months ye shall offer a burnt offering unto Yehovah; two young bullocks, and one ram, seven lambs of the first year without spot;

--------------

Have you ever noticed, everyone spoke in their discourses - from the beginning

 

Matt. 19 [8] He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.

---------

Mark 10 [6] But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

---------

Mark 13 [19] For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

---------

Luke 1 [2] Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;

---------

John 6 [64] But there are some of you that believe not. For Yeshua / Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

---------

Acts 11 [4] But Peter rehearsed the matter from the beginning, and expounded it by order unto them, saying,

---------

Acts 15 [18] Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

---------

Eph.3 [9] And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

---------

2 Thes. 2 [13] But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

---------

2 Pet. 3 [4] And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

---------

1 John 1 [1] That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

---------

1 John 2 [7] Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

[13] I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

[14] I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

[24] Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

------------

In conclusion again:

 

2 John 1 [5] And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

[6] And this is love,

that we walk after his commandments.

This is the commandment,

that, as ye have heard from the beginning,

ye should walk in it.

---

Ecc. 12 [13] Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

14] For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

 

Remember

Jas. 3 [14] ...lie not against the truth.

 

Get back to the Word from the beginning

Shabbat Shalom
