Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s
Today is April 28, 2018 - in the 21 Century
April -- Aphrodite's month
Old English April(is)
Greek Aphro, short for Aphrodite.
Aprilis had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.
Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She is identified with the Roman goddess Venus.
We acknowledge Yehovah’s calendar
We are now in the second month called Ziv /Zif – 11th day
Ziv = Brightness – (figuratively) the month of flowers
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.
בְּחֹדֶשׁ זִו, הוּא הַחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי
 In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the Yehovah laid, in the month Zif…
Part of April / May 2018
***Make sure you change your Judaism calendars – The 2nd month is not Iyyar as Judaism states, it is Ziv as scriptures states.

Our seven week journey again, spiritually speaking
Our seven week journey we observe, in memorial to meet God again on Mt. Sinai to receive the commandments and receive the Spirit of God.
From slaves in Egypt (our last lives of sin) to the people of God
The giving of the Law (10 commandments) and the giving of the Holy Spirit
A short review of the soon coming Spring Feasts and Holy Days
Remember: We were told to count "Sabbaths" not omers.
An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley
עמר omer - A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)
Lev.23  And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:
 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.
Moving forward: We started our 7 week journey again towards Feast of Weeks – Pentecost - the Feast of Harvest – the wheat harvest in Sivan
May 27, Sunday - a Sabbath
Esth.8  Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan…
Exod.34  And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest…
Exod.23  And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field…
In the 3rd month Sivan, day 20

Messiah, The true light of the world
The True Light, Image
John.8 Then spake Yeshua again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 9  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
1 John 1  … God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Out of darkness, death cometh the light, life
Gen.1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
And the evening and the morning were the first day.
 And God said,
Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the
day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days,
 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
 And God made two great lights;
the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also.
 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth,
 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
We are children of Light, Life – the Resurrection
 Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,
 Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto
us, If any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that
his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
 There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.
 And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.
 And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.
 Last of all the woman died also.
 Therefore in the resurrection (which they don’t believe) whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
 And Yeshua answering said unto them, The children of
this world marry, and are given in marriage:
 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
 Now that the dead are raised, even
Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth
the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
 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.
 the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil : whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God…
 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
 In the
beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 The same was in the beginning with God.
 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
 In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
 He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew him
 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
 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:
 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
 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.
 And as Moses lifted up the serpent
in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
 But He that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the
voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
Even John - He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
John 11  Yeshua answered, Are there not twelve hours in
the day (time)? If any man walk
in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this
 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.
 Then Yeshua said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light
 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
1Pet.2  …ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
 Which in time past were not a
people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now
have obtained mercy.
 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles…
2Pet.1  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts…
We are lights of this world
Matt.5  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all at are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Messiah - Luke.1  To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace
Messiah - Luke.2  A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
Luke.11  No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
Which are you above?
 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
The artificial light, false image is engulfing the world
The artificial image
The topic pertaining to false images not to worship is a vast topic.
Here are a few verses:
False images are everywhere!
And God spake all these words, saying,
 I am Yehovah thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Yehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
The last false Image
 And I saw another angel fly
in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that
dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice,
If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
 The same
shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without
mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire
and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the
 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Yeshua.
 And I saw another sign in heaven,
great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven
last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
 And I heard a great voice out of
the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of
the wrath of God upon the earth.
 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.
Rev.19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
Satan - angel of "artificial" light
Satan’s ministers – false ministers of righteousness
Angels of “artificial” light
2 Cor. 11 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if Satan’s ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works.
