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


Today is January 13, 2018 - in the 21 Century


January -- Janus's month

Middle English Januarie
Januarius "of Janus"
Janu(s) "Janus" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Januarius mensis "month of Janus"

Janus is the Roman god of gates and doorways, depicted with two faces looking in opposite directions. His festival month is January.

Januarius had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.


We acknowledge God’s calendar

We are now in the 10th month of God, called – Teveth, 25th day

Today’s Topic: A few verses pertaining to:

The Heart of mankind

Part 1 – the Heart


795 verses in TaNaKh, 168 verses in the Gospels and letters


Heart: lev (lav)לֵב


Here are a few concordances’ definitions:


The heart: as the most interior organ; also used (figuratively) very widely for the feelings, the will and even the intellect; likewise for the center of anything, understanding, wisdom - As a seat of courage, as a seat of emotions and passions, moral character, and so much more…


Remember, there are always good and bad hearts


Let’s start Part 1:


Our first intense of the word: Heart

Gen.6 [5] And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

[6] And it repented Yehovah that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.

A few more:

Gen.8 [21] And Yehovah smelled a sweet savour; and Yehovah said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

Exod. 28 [3] And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

[29] And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before Yehovah continually.[30] And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he goeth in before Yehovah: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before Yehovah continually.
