Shabbat Shalom שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם

Today is the Shabbat, Godís Time

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

 Letís pray

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

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

Today is February 22, 2014

 

February -- month of Februa

Latin dies februatus "day of purification"

Februarius had 28 days, until circa 450 BC when it had 23 or 24 days on some of every second year, until Julius when it had 29 days on every fourth year and 28 days otherwise.

Februa is the Roman festival of purification held on February fifteenth. It is possibly of Sabine origin.

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

Yehovah has His own calendar

We are now in the 12th month, which is the month called Adar, 21th day

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.

Adar = ďgloriousĒ- אדר

Corresponding to modern Feb. / March

Todayís Topic:

A little information pertaining to Saul / Paul

The Bible has 21 letters, epistles

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

Paulís Ministry in includes: Syria, Israel, Asia Minor to Greece, Italy to Rome and all the other cities as the letters are entitled below.

Acts 7 [58] And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.

Acts 8

[1] And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles.
[2] And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him.
[3] As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison.

Paulís conversion

Acts 9 [1] And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,

[4] And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

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

Greek name applied - Paul

Acts 13 [9] Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,

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

Saul - Paul is not a Gentile nor is he against the Jews, he is a Jew!

Rom. 9: [1] I say the truth in Messiah, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,
[2] That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
[3] For I could wish that myself were accursed from Messiah for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:

[4] Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises;[5] Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Messiah came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

Rom. 10 [1] Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.


Rom. 11 [1] I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.[2] God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew.

Phil. 3: [5] 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;[6] Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

Tarsus -a city in Asia Minor


Acts 21 [39] But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia,

Acts 22 [3] I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day.

Acts 26 [5] Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.

Acts 23 [6] But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.

1 Corth. 5 [9] I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

1Cor.7[6] But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.

Paul never married - [8] I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.

[12] But to the rest speak I, not the Lord:

[25] Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that hath obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.

[35] And this I speak for your own profit;

[40] But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.

2 Cor. 8 [10] And herein I give my advice: for this is expedient for you, who have begun before, not only to do, but also to be forward a year ago.

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

Paul had a sister and her son warned Paul

Acts 23 [16] And when Paul's sister's son heard of their lying in wait, he went and entered into the castle, and told Paul.

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

Paul preaches

Acts. 18 Paul [19] And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.

Acts. 19 [8 ] And he Paul, went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God .

Acts.9 [20 ] And straightway he ( Paul ) preached Messiah in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.

Acts.13 [ 1] Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
[2] As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
[3] And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
[4] So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.

[13] Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.[14 ] But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.

[15] And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.

[42] And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.

Acts.14 [1 ] And it came to pass in Iconium, that they went both together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake, that a great multitude both of the Jews and also of the Greeks believed.

Acts.15 [21 ] For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.

Acts.17 [1 ] Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

[10] And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

[17] Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.

Acts.18 Paul

[4] And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.

[19] And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.

[24] And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
[25] This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
[26] And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue : whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.

Acts.19

[1] And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth , Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
[2] He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
[3] And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.
[4] Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Messiah Yeshua.
[5] When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Yeshua.
[6] And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.
[7] And all the men were about twelve.

[8] And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God.

Acts.22 [19 ] And I said, Lord, they know that I imprisoned and beat in every synagogue them that believed on thee :

Acts.24 [12 ] And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:

Letís read the last chapter of Acts to conclude Paulís life

Acts 28

[1] And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
[2] And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
[3] And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
[4] And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
[5] And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
[6] Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
[7] In the same quarters were possessions of the chief man of the island, whose name was Publius; who received us, and lodged us three days courteously.
[8] And it came to pass, that the father of Publius lay sick of a fever and of a bloody flux: to whom Paul entered in, and prayed, and laid his hands on him, and healed him.
[9] So when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and were healed:
[10] Who also honoured us with many honours; and when we departed, they laded us with such things as were necessary.
[11] And after three months we departed in a ship of Alexandria, which had wintered in the isle, whose sign was Castor and Pollux.
[12] And landing at Syracuse, we tarried there three days.
[13] And from thence we fetched a compass, and came to Rhegium: and after one day the south wind blew, and we came the next day to Puteoli:
[14] Where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days: and so we went toward Rome.
[15] And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appiiforum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took courage.
[16] And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him.
[17] And it came to pass, that after three days Paul called the chief of the Jews together: and when they were come together, he said unto them, Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into the hands of the Romans.
[18] Who, when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there was no cause of death in me.
[19] But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal unto Caesar; not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.
[20] For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to speak with you: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.
[21] And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came shewed or spake any harm of thee.
[22] But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.
[23] And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Yeshua, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.
[24] And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.
[25] And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers,
[26] Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:
[27] For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
[28] Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.
[29] And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.
[30] And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him,
[31] Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

 

Amen

Shabbat Shalom
