Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500ís,
July 25, 2015
July -- Julius Caesar's month
Latin Julius "Julius"
Latin Julius mensis "month of Julius"
Latin quintilis mensis "fifth month"
Quintilis (and later Julius) has always had 31 days.
Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.
We acknowledge Godís calendar
We are now in the 5th month, 8st day - no name in scripture
Judaism calls it Av. Not scriptural.

Part 2 - Messianic Prophecies of Messiah Yeshua
We will explore a little more today the credentials of the Messiah
How Messiah was very aware of fulfilling scripture
Messiah's testimony in the Gospels bare witness that He fulfilled all the TaNaKh prophecies pertaining Himself
This is an amazing miracle in itself. There is no parallel in the literature of the world.
John 5  Search the scriptures; (TaNaKh) for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
John.8  Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Yeshua said unto them, Verily,verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
John 5  For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. (in TaNaKh)
 And Yeshua taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.
 And Yeshua came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. (As we do today)
 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, Isa. 61
 The Spirit of Yehovah is upon me (Messiah), because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
 To preach the acceptable year of Yehovah.
 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.
The woman of Samaria was clearly a devout readers of TaNaKh, she knew all about Messiah - as were the Apostles and Disciples
 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Messiah: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Yeshua saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
 And upon this came his
disciples, and marvelled that
he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou?
or, Why talkest thou with her?
 The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Messiah?
 When Yeshua came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Messiah, the Son of the living God.
 And Yeshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Yeshua, by taking the title "Son of God", Yeshua identified Himself with that Messianic title used in the second Psalm.
Pss.2  I will declare the decree: Yehovah hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Almost everything Messiah said or did had some connection with the TaNakh prophecies.
Some of Messiah's miracles were in fulfillment in TaNakh's predictions in Isa. 35
 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of Yehovah, and the excellency of our God.
 Strengthen ye the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
 And the ransomed of Yehovah shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Messiah's ministry was in accord with what Isaiah had predicted concerning Him (Isa. 42:1-4, Isa. 61:1-3)
 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
 The Spirit of the Lord Yehovah is upon me; because Yehovah hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
 To proclaim the acceptable year of Yehovah, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Yehovah, that he might be glorified.
 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
Messiahís sufferings and death at Jerusalem were all in accordance with what had been foretold in Psa. 22 and Isa. 53.
When speaking of John the Baptist, Messiah called attention to the fact that John was His forerunner, even as they was predicted in Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1.
 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of Yehovah,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
 And the glory of Yehovah shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of Yehovah hath spoken it.
Also Messiah had to come before the 2nd Temple was destroyed
 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to this temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith Yehovah of hosts.
Matt.11  For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Mark.1  As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Luke.7  This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
Always fulfilling scripture
As Yeshua drew near to the end, He said to His disciples:
Luke 18  Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished.
Luke.22  For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: Isa.53:9 - for the things concerning me have an end.
In Matt.26 we read Messiah is always quoting the Scriptures where His credentials are prewritten.
Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.
 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
 And forthwith he came to Yeshua, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
 And Yeshua said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Yeshua, and took him.
 And, behold, one of them which were with Yeshua stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.
Then said Yeshua unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all
they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
 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.
 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
Mark.14  And Yeshua saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
Zech.13  Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith Yehovah of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
After His resurrection, He spoke to two of His disciples by the village called Emmaus.
And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which
was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.
 And they talked together of all these things which had happened.
 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Yeshua himself drew near, and went with them.
 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.
 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
 And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass therein these days?
 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Yeshua of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:
 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.
 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.
 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the
prophets have spoken:
 Ought not Messiah to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though
he would have gone further.
 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? TaNaKh
And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven
gathered together, and them that were with them,
 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.
 And as they thus spake, Yeshua himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
 And he took it, and did eat before them.
 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be
fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in
the psalms, concerning me.
 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, TaNaKh
And said unto them, Thus it is written, and
thus it behoved
Messiah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Pss.40  Sacrifice and offering thou
didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering
hast thou not required.  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book
it is written of me,
 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of
the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year
continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.
 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yeshua Messiah once for all.
Back to Luke 24
And ye are witnesses of these things.
 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:
 And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God.
John 10Öthe scripture cannot be broken
Credentials are testimonials, evidence, written proofs, such as letters of commendation or legal documents, proving the bearerís right to office or position.
Yeshua fulfilled them all!
He is the Messiah
Always remember a few important points to prove the real Messiah:
Point 1 Ė The Messiah must come before the tribe of Judah lost its tribal identity
Gen.49  The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Point 2 - The Messiah had to come while the second temple was still standing
Hag.2  And I will shake all nations,
and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with
glory, saith Yehovah of hosts.  The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith Yehovah of
 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith Yehovah of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith Yehovah of hosts.
Mal.3  Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to this temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith Yehovah of hosts.
Pss.118  The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone
of the corner.
 This is Yehovah's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
 This is the day which Yehovah hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
 Save now, I beseech thee Yehovah, Yehovah, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.
 Blessed be HE (Messiah) that cometh in the name of Yehovah: we have blessed you out of the house of Yehovah.
 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So
they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
 And Yehovah said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of Yehovah. (the second Temple)
 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
Messiah had to come 483 years after a specific date in Danielís time. We will explore next week, Lord willing.
So any Messiah coming now in 2015 or in the future, could not fulfill these verses above.
Two reasons are that Judahís tribal identity and the Temple were both destroyed in 70 A.D.
The real Messiah had to come almost 2,000 years ago, before God had the temple destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Roman general, Titus.
