 שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם


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

Today is February 20th, 2021

February -- month of Februa

Latin dies februatus "day of purification"

Februarius had 28 days, until 450 BC when it had 23 or 24 days on some of every second year, until Julius when it had 29 days on every fourth year and 28 days otherwise.

This month had 27 days until the month was abolished by Julius.

Februa is the Roman festival of purification held on February fifteenth. It is possibly of Sabine origin.

Sabine, member of an ancient Italic tribe located in the mountainous country east of the Tiber River. They were known for their religious practices and beliefs, and several Roman institutions were said to have derived from them. 


Yehovah God has His own calendar, which is deleted from the world 

We are now in the 12th month in the scriptures called Adar, day 7

Esth.3 [7] ….the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar = “glorious”   אֲדָר  

דָר means to dwell, live

I see by this word Adar, when broken down, can convey a message that the "invisible, glorious God" wants to dwell among us and in us.


Soon we then will read the Book of Esther. Purim is coming…   


In the Book of Esther, the Hebrew the word "Esther" means "star" but the root of the word "Esther" is "satarand means "hidden".

The words, God and Lord do not appear in the book of Esther, they are "hidden or silent".

Deut.13[6] If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend, which is as your own soul, entice you secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known, you, nor your fathers; [7] Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto you, or far off from you, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;
[8] You shall not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him:
[9] But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
[10] And you shall stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust you away from Yehovah your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
[11] And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.


Deut.27 [15] Cursed be the man that makes any graven or molten image, an abomination unto Yehovah, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and puts it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.

[24] Cursed be he that smites his neighbor secretly. And all the people shall say, Amen.


Deut.29 [29] the secret things belong unto Yehovah our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.


Judg.13 [2] And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. [3] And the angel of Yehovah appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, you are barren, and bear not: but you shall conceive, and bear a son. Samson

[18] And the angel of Yehovah said unto him, why ask you thus after my name, seeing it is secret?

2 Kgs.17 [9]… the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against Yehovah their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city. [10] And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree:
[11] And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom Yehovah carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke Yehovah to anger:
[12] For they served idols, whereof Yehovah had said unto them, You shall not do this thing.


Job 4 [12] Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof. [13] In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on men,
[14] Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.
[15] Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:
[16] It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,
[17] Shall mortal man be more just then God? Shall a man be more pure than his maker?
[18] Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:
[19] How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?
[20] They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it.
[21] Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? They die, even without wisdom.


Job 11 [1] Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said,
[2] Should not the multitude of words be answered? And should a man full of talk be justified?
[3] Should your lies make men hold their peace? And when you mock, shall no man make you ashamed?
[4] For you have said, my doctrine is pure, and I am clean in your eyes.
[5] But oh that God would speak, and open his lips against you;

[6] And that he would show you the secrets of wisdom that they are double to that which is!

Know therefore that God exacts of you less than your iniquity deserves.


Job 13 [10] He, God will surely reprove you, if you do secretly accept persons.


Some Psalms and Proverbs

Pss. 19 [12] Who can understand his errors? Cleanse You me from secret faults. [13] Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
[14] Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in your sight, Yehovah, my strength, and my redeemer.


Pss. 25 [14] The secret of Yehovah is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Pss. [1] Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
[2] Hide me from
the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
[3] Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
[4] That
they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
[5] They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, who shall see them?
[6] They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

[7] But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
[8] So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.
[9] And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
[10] The righteous shall be glad in Yehovah, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.

[1] He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
[2] I will say of Yehovah, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
[3] Surely he shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
[4] He shall cover you with his feathers, and under his wings shall you trust: his truth shall be your shield and buckler.
[5] You shall not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flies by day;
[6] Nor for the pestilence that walks in darkness; nor for the destruction that wastes at noonday.
[7] A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come nigh you.
[8] Only with your eyes shall you behold and see the reward of the wicked.
[9] Because you have made Yehovah, which is my refuge, even the most High, your habitation;
[10] There shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling.
[11] For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
[12] They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.
[13] You shall tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall you trample under feet.
[14] Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

[16] With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

Now, some Gospels and letters:


Κρυπτός - kruptos - kroop-tos'- From G2928; concealed, that is, private

Κρύπτω - kruptō - kroop'-to - A primary verb; to conceal , hide (self), keep secret, secret [-ly].



ἐλεημοσύνη - eleēmosunē - el-eh-ay-mos-oo'-nay - compassionateness, that is, (as exercised towards the poor) beneficence, or (concretely) a benefaction: - alms - compassion (human or divine, especially active): - (+ tender) mercy.



[1] Take heed that you do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise you have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
[2] Therefore when you do your alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
[3] But when you doest alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand doeth:
[4] That your alms may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly.

[5] And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
[6] But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which is in secret; and your Father which sees in secret shall reward you openly.

[7] But when you pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
[8] Be not you therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask him.
[9] After this manner therefore pray you: Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name.
[10] Your kingdom come. Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
[11] Give us this day our daily bread.
[12] And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
[13] And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For your is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

[14] For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
[15] But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

[16] Moreover when you fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.
[17] But you, when you fastest, anoint your head, and wash your face;
[18] That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto your Father which is in secret: and your Father, which sees in secret, shall reward you openly


Matt.13 [34] All these things spoke Yeshua unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spoke he not unto them: [35] That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet (David), saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.


[1] Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
[2] I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
[3] Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
[4] We will not hide them from their children, showing to the generation to come the praises of Yehovah, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.

Mark.4 [21] And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed, and not to be set on a candlestick? [22] For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was anything kept secret, but that it should come abroad.

Luke.8 [16] No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed; but sets it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. [17] For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Rom.2 [14] For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
[15] Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
[16] In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Yeshua the Messiah according to my gospel.

Rom.16 [25] Now to Him that is of power to establish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Yeshua the Messiah, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, [26] But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
[27] To God only wise, be glory through Yeshua the Messiah forever. Amen.


In closing for today:

There are many other verses in the Scriptures pertaining to the word secret, this will suffice for today.



To veil from sight, that is, conceal (literally or figuratively): - any ways, blind, dissembler, hide (self), secret (thing).

Ess.12 [12] And further, by these, my son or daughter, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

[13] Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:

Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.[14] For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Shabbat Shalom
