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

August 8, 2015

August -- Augustus Caesar's month

Latin Augustus "Augustus"
Latin Augustus
mensis "month of Augustus"
Latin
sextilis mensis "sixth month"

Sextilis had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.

Augustus Caesar clarified and completed the calendar reform of Julius Caesar. In the process, he also renamed this month after himself.

We acknowledge Godís calendar

We are now in the 5th month, 22 day - no name in scripture

Judaism calls it Av. Not scriptural.

Letís start:

Gen.22

[1] And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.
[2] And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
[3] And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
[4] Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
[5] And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you,
[6] And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
[7] And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
[8] And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
[9] And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
[10] And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
[11] And the angel of Yehovah called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
[12] And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
[13] And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
[14] And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of Yehovah it shall be seen.
[15] And the angel of Yehovah called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
[16] And said, By myself have I sworn, saith Yehovah, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
[17] That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
[18] And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Gen.26

[1] And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.
[2] And Yehovah appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
[3] Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
[4] And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
[5] Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

Exod.19

[1] In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
[2] For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.
[3] And Moses went up unto God, and Yehovah called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;
[4] Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

[5] Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
[6] And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Exod.23

[20] Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
[21] Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.

[22] But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

Deut.4

[30] When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to Yehovah thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
[31] (For Yehovah thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

Deut.11

[26] Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
[27] A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of Yehovah your God, which I command you this day:
[28] And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of Yehovah your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

Deut.13 [4] Ye shall walk after Yehovah your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

Deut.27 [10] Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of Yehovah thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.

Deut.30

[1] And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither Yehovah thy God hath driven thee,

[2] And shalt return unto Yehovah thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

[3] That then Yehovah thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither Yehovah thy God hath scattered thee.

[4] If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will Yehovah thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:

[5] And Yehovah thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.

[6] And Yehovah thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love Yehovah thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

[7] And Yehovah thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.

[8] And thou shalt return and obey the voice of Yehovah, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.

[9] And Yehovah thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for Yehovah will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:

[10] If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Yehovah thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto Yehovah thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

[11] For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

[12] It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
[13] Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
[14] But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

[15] See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

[16] In that I command thee this day to love Yehovah thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and Yehovah thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

[17] But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
[18] I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

[19] I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

[20] That thou mayest love Yehovah thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which Yehovah sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.

Josh.24

[19] And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve Yehovah: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.

[20] If ye forsake Yehovah, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.

[21] And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve Yehovah.
[22] And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you Yehovah, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.

[23] Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto Yehovah God of Israel.

[24] And the people said unto Joshua, Yehovah our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.

[25] So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.

[26] And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of Yehovah.

[27] And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of Yehovah which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.

Job.36

[11] If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

[12] But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.

Isa.1

[18] Come now, and let us reason together, saith Yehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

[19] If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

[20] But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of Yehovah hath spoken it.

Jer.7

[22] For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices:

[23] But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

[24] But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

[25] Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:
[26] Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.

[27] Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee.
[28] But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of Yehovah their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
[29] Cut off thine hair, O Jerusalem, and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on high places; for Yehovah hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath.
[30] For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith Yehovah: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to pollute it.
[31] And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.
[32] Therefore, behold, the days come, saith Yehovah, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.
[33] And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.
[34] Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.í

Jer.26 [13] Therefore now amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of Yehovah your God; and Yehovah will repent him of the evil that he hath pronounced against you.

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

There are to0 many verses that say they did not obey the voice of the Yehovah their God

Here are a few; you may read the whole chapters later

Deut.28 [62] And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of Yehovah thy God.

Josh.5 [6] For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of Yehovah: unto whom Yehovah sware that he would not shew them the land, which Yehovah sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

Judg.2 [2] And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?

[17] And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of Yehovah; but they did not so.

1Sam.15 [19] Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of Yehovah, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of Yehovah?

[20] And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of Yehovah, and have gone the way which Yehovah sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

[21] But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto Yehovah thy God in Gilgal.

[22] And Samuel said, Hath Yehovah as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Yehovah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

[23] For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.

Because thou hast rejected the word of Yehovah, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

[24] And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of Yehovah, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.

1Sam.28 [18] Because thou obeyedst not the voice of Yehovah, nor executedst his fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath Yehovah done this thing unto thee this day.

1Kgs.20 [36] Then said he unto him, Because thou hast not obeyed the voice of Yehovah, behold, as soon as thou art departed from me, a lion shall slay thee. And as soon as he was departed from him, a lion found him, and slew him.

2Kgs.18 [12] Because they obeyed not the voice of Yehovah their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of Yehovah commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.

Neh.9 [17] And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage:

but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.

Isa.42 [24] Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not Yehovah, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law.

Jer.3 [13] Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against Yehovah thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith Yehovah.

[25] We lie down in our shame, and our confusion covereth us: for we have sinned against Yehovah our God, we and our fathers, from our youth even unto this day, and have not obeyed the voice of Yehovah our God.

Jer.7 [23] But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

[28] But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of Yehovah their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.

Jer.9 [13] And Yehovah saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;

Jer.11[3] And say thou unto them, Thus saith Yehovah God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,

[4] Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God:

[7] For I earnestly protested unto your fathers in the day that I brought them up out of the land of Egypt, even unto this day, rising early and protesting, saying, Obey my voice.

[8] Yet they obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, but walked every one in the imagination of their evil heart: therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do; but they did them not.

Jer.12 [17] But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith Yehovah.

Jer.17 [23] But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction.

Jer.18 [10] If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

Jer.22 [21] I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.

Jer.32 [23] And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:

Jer.42 [13] But if ye say, We will not dwell in this land, neither obey the voice of Yehovah your God,

[21] And now I have this day declared it to you; but ye have not obeyed the voice of Yehovah your God, nor any thing for the which he hath sent me unto you.

Jer.43 [4] So Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces, and all the people, obeyed not the voice of Yehovah, to dwell in the land of Judah.

[7] So they came into the land of Egypt: for they obeyed not the voice of Yehovah: thus came they even to Tahpanhes.

Jer.44 [23] Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against Yehovah, and have not obeyed the voice of Yehovah, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.

Dan.9 [10] Neither have we obeyed the voice of Yehovah our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets.

[11] Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him.

[14] Therefore hath Yehovah watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for Yehovah our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.

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

Then there is Yeshua the Messiah

Matt.8 [27] But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Mark 1 [27] And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.

Mark 4 [41] And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

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

Remember:

2 Cor.10

[3] For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
[4] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
[5] Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Messiah;
[6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

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

In closing:

Remember

Hath Yehovah as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,

as in obeying the voice of Yehovah?

Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,

and to hearken than the fat of rams.

 

Shabbat Shalom
