 Let’s pray


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

Today is August 10th 2013

August -- Augustus Caesar's month

Latin Augustus "Augustus"
Latin Augustus mensis "month of Augustus"
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.


Yehovah has His own calendar

We are now in the 6th month called Elul, 2nd day

These 2 verses below indicated to us Elul must be the 6th month

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

לֶ אֱלוּל   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.

It’s very nice to be back in Tennessee after a weeklong visit with my wife to New York, Brooklyn and New Jersey.

While driving through Manhattan and Brooklyn, I noticed many schools and learning institutions of various religions and beliefs.

I see everyone’s teaching, instructing and promoting their belief systems.

So I decided this morning, to do this topic entitled, “Our vision and Focus”.

Now a days, with the many formats such as Facebook, YouTube, paltalk, and so many other chat rooms that are espousing their beliefs and doctrines, I feel the need to really teach, explain, and bring understanding, for a true, unadulterated, untainted Torah mindset to as many people as possible.

Today's Topic:

Our vision and Focus

As always, all are welcome to join us and learn about topics never discussed in churches or synagogues, such as:

The Laws of God

The calendar of God

The pagan calendar we use every day

The three Feasts of Yehovah

The 7th day Sabbath

The 7 Sabbaths in the Feasts, the Holy Convocations

And many more

We are One in Messiah Congregation are just a part of the Israel of God.

We try our best to connect people from around the world for true fellowship in Messiah.

Let us know where you live, perhaps we know people around there we can inform you of, so you can fellowship with them.

We desire to have a One in Messiah Congregation all around the world so people can fellowship in Messiah Yeshua.

I hear people say all the time,

Where I live, no one believes in the Sabbath, Feasts of Yehovah, etc.

I don't know where to go for services. I am all alone.

At this moment in time, this is the best we can do and offer you.


I hear people say:

Does anyone know of true believers in my city?

I would love to have a congregation to attend where I live, how do I start one? 

Why don't the believers in Messiah have their own communities with like-minded people as other do?

Where can I find true fellowship in Messiah? 

Where can I go for the Sabbath? 

Where can I learn the Scriptures? 

Where can my children go to school? 

I have so many questions, where can I seek scriptural counsel on these matters? 

I want to tithe but don't know who to partner with 

I need answers from the scriptures on how to prove who is the true Messiah is to my friends

The list of questions goes on and on.

Religious School Vision Statement

The One in Messiah Congregation is now 11 years old this year, 2013

We have a clear vision and focus

We plan to have a Bible school that builds an integrated model on Biblical education, which encourages and facilitates family involvement and lifelong learning.

We embrace diversity of background as we seek to celebrate our common bonds of Messianic identity: intellectually, spiritually, and culturally.

All of our values are taught from a biblical perspective; all decisions are made within the framework of biblical thought.

We seek to increase biblical knowledge in the many of our disciplines in the areas of Hebrew, History, Social Justice, and all areas of everyday life …with the Bible as our anchor.

We seek to strengthen the relevance of believers in the Messiah as the foundation of everyday living.

We pray to find families that delight in meaningful biblical exploration in informal, yet structured classroom environments.

We encourage all to seek the knowledge of God in scriptural readings, praying, fasting, writing, discussion, liturgical expression and non-traditional (play, art, music, acting, and nature) realms.

We strive for biblical enrichment in the classroom, in the home, and in the world.

We believe God for a faculty that promotes Godly education.

As we attain these things, we will need teachers to volunteer. We need teachers with child- centered focus, embody professionalism, knowledge, dedication, commitment, enthusiasm, creativity, integrity, patience, and accountability.

They must share their time to ensure the continuation of biblical growth and development, with their own biblical education as a priority.

Our biblical school is a home away from home, a holy place.

Our passion for scriptures pervades our curriculum, celebrations, surroundings, behaviors, attitudes, and approaches.

We believe, at One in Messiah in living the sacred values we teach.

We teach God's kindness, compassion, fear He deserves, His truths, His righteousness.

We feel compelled to see those values in the classrooms, offices, sanctuary, chapel, and playground in all aspects of a believer's life.

We want to come together to celebrate the joys of the Messiah and His observance, as we create a safe haven for behavior and involvement.

We believe that education occurs both inside and outside the religious school.

The Bible is a way of life and therefore needs to be encountered through a variety of experiences.

We take this idea very seriously.

As a result, the following programs are included as part of our biblical educational program.

We plan to have family education at One in Messiah Congregation designed to promote Messianic and biblical practices as a way of life.

Our programs will help our families to become more involved in a "biblical life" and in our school.

Parents who also attend our biblical school should demonstrate to their children that biblical learning is a lifelong and family centered process.

All parents are encouraged to participate in the studies.

Some subjects will involve exploring ways to observe the yearly holy days and Shabbat with scriptural source background.

We would love to have community scholars and professionals join us.

This course will look into many concerns of society, culture, and religion from a variety of different scriptural perspectives.

Our curriculum will be designed to teach our children about the Feasts of Yehovah and observances that are part of biblical requirements.

We realize that these "Feasts of Yehovah" should be practiced and observed.

It is of great importance for families to experience these feasts of Yehovah  and the Sabbaths in an individual as well as communal setting.

We encourage you to engage in these observances in your home and to join the One in Messiah family when we celebrate together the Feasts of Yehovah. 

We would love to have summer camp and organize a trips to Israel if desired.

A Biblical summer experience offers an intensive exposure to the ideals and values of the Messianic community in a unique setting.

We will encourage all of our students to take advantage of these fine programs.

Financial assistance, we pray, will be available through the offerings we receive. We will have an application process and deadline for each event.


As you can see, I dream big. We believe God for many things. He is a BIG GOD.

I say again, please join us with your prayers, fasting, dedication and finances.

We need donations, properties, buildings, vehicles and finances.

Please call us with all and any ideas you may have at 615 591-9820 or 615 538-8471

Together as, One in Messiah Congregation, we shall see these Godly desires turn into Godly realities.

Come and praise the Messiah with us!

Have questions?

Come, let us reason together.
Praise Yah!

One in Messiah Congregation

***next year, 2014, Lord willing, we plan to have a summer school for teenagers, parents can attend also) who want to learn the Torah, (Genesis to Deuteronomy), from Scripture, not from commentaries. Interested? Contact us.


Quite a dream I have isn't?

Without dreams many realities may not have come into being.

So dream big and maybe you’ll fall on one of the levels below, don’t start small.


And now some Scriptures on teaching:

Exod.4[12] Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.[15] And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

Exod.18[20] And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

Exod.24[12] And Yehovah said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Lev.10[11] And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which Yehovah hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

Deut.4[1] Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which Yehovah God of your fathers giveth you.

[9] Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;

[10] Specially the day that thou stoodest before Yehovah thy God in Horeb, when Yehovah said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

[14] And Yehovah commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

Deut.5[31] But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

Deut.6[1] Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which Yehovah your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

[7] And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Deut.11[19] And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Deut.17[11] According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.

Deut.20[18] That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against Yehovah your God.

Deut.31[19] Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.

Pss.51[13] Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

Pss.8611] Teach me thy way, Yehovah; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.

Pss.90[12] So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Pss.94[10] He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

[12] Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, Yehovah, and teachest him out of thy law;

Pss.105[22] To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

Pss.119[12] Blessed art thou, Yehovah: teach me thy statutes.

 [33] Teach me, Yehovah, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.

[64] The earth, Yehovah, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.

[66] Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

[68] Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.

[108] Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, Yehovah, and teach me thy judgments.

[124] Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.

[135] Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.

Pss.132[12] If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore.

Pss.143[10] Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

Pss.144[1] Blessed be Yehovah my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:

Prov.9[9] Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

Prov.16[23] The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.

Matt.4[23] And Yeshua went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

Matt.9[35] And Yeshua went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

Matt.11[1] And it came to pass, when Yeshua had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.

Matt.21[23] And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?

Matt.22[16] And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

Matt.26[55] In that same hour said Yeshua to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

Matt.28[19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:[20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Acts.1[1] The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Yeshua began both to do and teach, [2] Until the day in which he was taken up

Acts.5[25] Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.

[28] Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.

[42] And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Yeshua Messiah.

Col.3[16] Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

1Tim.3[2] A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

Tit.2[3] The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not , teachers of good things;given to much wine

[4] That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,[12] Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;



Matt.28[19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:[20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
