Today is May 2, 2020 – in the 21 century
May -- Maia's month
Old French Mai
Old English Maius
Latin Maius "of Maia"
Latin Maius mensis "month of Maia"
Maius has always had 31 days.
Maia (meaning "the great one") is the Italic goddess of spring, the daughter of Faunus, and wife of Vulcan.
We acknowledge Yehovah’s calendar:
We are now in the 2nd month called Ziv – day 8
1Kgs.6 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.
The 2nd month is not Iyyar (made – up) as Judaism states;
it is Ziv as scriptures states.
It is now the 3rd Sabbath of the 7 Sabbaths we were told to count. We are on our way to the Feast of Weeks. How are you doing?
Life is a short journey, Fear God
Beware of sin!
Ecc.9  Wisdom is better than weapons of war: but one sinner destroys much good.
Num. 32  …you have sinned against Yehovah: and be sure your sin will find you out.
Scripture says of our time here:
 The days of our years are threescore years and ten 70; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years 80, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
 O remember that my life is wind…
 The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: your eyes are upon me, and I am not.
 As the cloud is consumed and vanishes away: so he that goes down to the grave shall come up no more.
 He shall return no more to his house; neither shall his place know him any more
 For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow…
 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
 Go to now, you that say, today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
 Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow.
For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.
 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?
 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
 And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
 Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be cloth?
 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek :) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
 But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Prov.15  the way of life is above to the wise that he may depart from hell beneath.
Col.3 - Saul says:
 If you then be raised with
Messiah, seek those things which are above, where Messiah sits on the right hand of God.
 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
 For you are dead, and your life is hid with Messiah in God.
 When Messiah, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
1Chr.29 … our days on the earth are as a shadow…
Heb.9  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment…
A short review of Ecclesiastes:
From Late Latin - Greek ekklēsiastḗs - assemblyman, preacher
Ecclesiastic - noun - a member of the clergy or other person in religious orders
c.1300 – A name given to one of the Old Testament books / TaNaKh, traditionally ascribed to Solomon, from Greek ekklesiastes
(see ecclesiastic), to render Hebrew qoheleth "one who addresses an assembly," from qahal "an assembly."
The title is technically the designation of the speaker, but that word throughout is usually rendered into English as "The Preacher".
קֹהֶלֶת - preacher
Vanity of vanities
hâval - A primitive root; to be vain in act, word, or expectation; specifically to lead astray: - be (become, make) vain.
2 - Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher / Koheleth; vanity of vanities, all is vanity.
הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים אָמַר קֹהֶלֶת, הֲבֵל הֲבָלִים הַכֹּל הָבֶל
 One generation passes away, and another generation comes: but the earth (seems like it) abides forever.
 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
 I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem. Solomon
 And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be exercised therewith.
 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
 That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
 I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
 For in much wisdom is much grief:
and he that increases knowledge increases sorrow.
 Then said I in my heart, As it happens to the fool, so it happens even to me; and why was I then more wise? Then I said in my heart, that this also is vanity.
 For there is no remembrance of the wise more than of the fool for ever; seeing that which now is in the days to come shall all be forgotten.
And how dies the wise man? As the fool…
 Therefore I hated life; because the work that is wrought under the sun is grievous unto me: for all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
 Yea, I hated all my labor which I had taken under the sun: because I should leave it unto the man that shall be after me.
 And who knows whether he shall be a wise man or a fool? Yet shall he have rule over all my labor wherein I have labored, and wherein I have showed myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity.
 There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
 For God gives to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy:
but to the sinner he gives travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.
Ecc.3  To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
 A time to be born, and a time to die… and all the rest
 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
 For that which befalls the sons of men befalls beasts; even one thing befalls them: as the one dies, so dies the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
 Who knows the spirit of man that goes upward, and the spirit of the beast that gosh downward to the earth?
 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
 There is an evil which
I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:
 A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honor, so that he wants nothing for his soul of all that he desire, yet God gives him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eats it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.
 If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.
 For he comes in with vanity, and departs in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.
 Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known any thing: this hath more rest than the other.
 Yea, though he lives a thousand years twice told, yet hath he seen no good: do not all go to one place? – The grave
 A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.
 It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.
 It is good that you should take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not your hand: for he that fears God shall come forth of them all.
 Who is as the wise man? And who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man's wisdom makes his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.
 I counsel thee to keep the king's commandment, and that in regard of the oath of God.
 Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleases him.
 Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What are you doing?
 Whoso keeps the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerns both time and judgment.
 Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of man is great upon him.
 For he knows not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
 And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.
 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged,
Yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:
 But it shall not be well with the wicked; neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he fears not before God.
 Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labor the days of his life, which God gives him under the sun.
 All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrifices, and to him that sacrifices not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that swears, as he that fears an oath.
 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
 For the living knows that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun.
 Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepts thy works.
 Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.
 Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labor which you take under the sun.
 Whatsoever thy hand finds to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither you go.
 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happens to them all.
 For man also knows not his time:
As the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.
 Remember now thy
Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years
draw nigh, when you shall say,
I have no pleasure in them;
 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,
 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought low;
 Also when they shall be afraid of that, which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail:
Because man goes to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:
 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
 Vanity of vanities, says the preacher; all is vanity.
 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.
 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
 And further, by these, my son,(and daughter) be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
 Let 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 is good, or whether it is evil.
A short review of some books mentioned in the Scriptures, we don't have today
Num. 21  Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of Yehovah, What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,
Josh. 10  And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
2 Sam. 1  Also he bade them teach the children of Judah the use of the bow: behold, it is written in the book of Jasher.
1Kgs.11  And the rest of the acts of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wisdom, are they not written in the book of the acts of Solomon? ;
1 Chr.29  Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer…
2 Chr.9 [ 29] Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer against Jeroboam the son of Nebat ?
2 Chr.12  Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, are they not written in the book of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer concerning genealogies? And there were wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.
2 Chr.20  Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel.
Ezra.4  that search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shall thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed.
Notice, in the letter from Jude:
Jude 1  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord Yeshua comes with ten thousands of his saints,
(The letters never says “a book of Enoch”)
In closing for now:
The Bible’s nomenclature is wrong.
Nomenclature (A system of names assigned to objects or items in a particular way)
The TaNaKh, pseudo – Christians call the Old Testament and the Gospels and letters they call the New Testament, which is wrong, therefore causing many problems.
My thoughts on this are that the TaNaKh and the Gospels and letters should have never been put together as one book.
For whatever reason, we never see dates in the Gospels and letters.
Time seems to just getaway. It makes it hard to be exact in dating anything.
We can just see only a small assortment of places for believers to attend.
In the Gospels and letters the word Yehovah is totally missing, even in the Greek.
There are no exact ages of most people in the Gospels and letters.
There is no mention of the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD and it seems that all the letters and Revelation must have been written before the destruction or they would have mentioned it.
Just food for thought…
