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

Today is April 24, 2021


April -- Aphrodite's month

Old English April(is)
Aphro, short for Aphrodite.

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

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love and beauty. She is identified with the Roman goddess Venus.

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


We are now in the second month called Ziv, day 11

Ziv - "brightness" - זִו

1Kgs.6 [1] And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Ziv, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of Yehovah.

[37] In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of Yehovah laid, in the month Ziv...

This is our third Sabbath of the seven week journey again, spiritually speaking, we were told to count:


In this journey we again observe in memorial, spiritually to meet God to receive the commandments and to receive the (Baptism) Spirit of God.

From slaves in Egypt (our last lives of sin) to the people of God


Remember: We were told to count "Sabbaths" in:

Lev.23 [15And you shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:[16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.


Not to count omers like many people are doing which sounds ridiculous and unscriptural.

An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley - עמר omer  - A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)



Hag Sh'vu-ot - חַג שָׁבֻעֹת Feasts of Weeks / Harvest / Pentecost, a Sabbath “Offering time” - Sunday May 23, 2021


Today’s Topic

The mind


The mind: of Yehovah /Yeshua and all of us


In this short study, we will learn about the mind


Too my surprise, the word, mind in Hebrew and Greek are many different words, too many to list for today.


The word, remember has to do with the mind, maybe next time a look into that word will be done.


For now, the mind

The word mind is used many different ways in scripture; I listed a few ways for us to think about (some maybe duplicate)

Isa. 26:3  I re-phased -  God will keep him / her in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on God: because you trust in God.

Here is a list

Most of these terms can be used for good or evil:

Grief of mind

Some people speak their minds

Some people are steadfastly minded to…

You can set or not set your mind on

Be minded of their own freewill to go up to…

You may be minded to repair the house of Yehovah

You may bring it again to mind

You can be chafed in minds of people…

(chafed : angry, bitter (-ly, -ness), discontented…)

A mind to work

You may change your mind

Despiteful minds

Having a fervent mind

A willing mind

ready mind

Some minds are hardened in pride

You can be forgotten as David said – as a dead man out of mind

Some people may not be mindful of God’s wonders that He did among them (and us today)

Don’t make your minds evil affected against anyone

Doing them, things or not doing them of you own mind

Your mind may be for or against a person, a place, an event or whatever…

Some are vainly puffed up by their fleshly minds

Watch what comes into your mind by Satan, the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience…

Cast in your mind what manner of salutation (greeting) you give people…

Receiving the word with all readiness of mind, searched the scriptures daily

Don’t be shaken in mind

Watch, your mind and conscience can be defiled

A sound mind

Sober minded

A double minded man or woman maybe unstable in all their ways.

Most people have an alienated mind from God…

Otherwise (differently) minded…

For consider Yeshua that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest you be wearied and faint in your minds.

Some have corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

You may recall to your mind (God), therefore having hope

May we always be in a right mind

Always try to call to mind the words that Yeshua spoke…

Always be fully persuaded in your own mind of the truth of the scriptures

Pure minds

Serve the Lord Yeshua with all humility of mind

A mind which hath wisdom


Many people’s minds are blinded from the truth

2 Cor.4 [4] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Messiah, who is the image of God, should shine unto them


God knows what comes into your minds:

Ezek.11 [5] And the Spirit of Yehovah fell upon me, and said unto me, Speak; Thus says Yehovah; Thus have you said, O house of Israel: for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them. If you don’t do what Yehovah wants you to do, Yehovah can give you a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind

God always will be ever be mindful of His covenant (s)

Make sure you don’t forget the God of your salvation, and have not been mindful of the rock of your strength…

Rom.1 [28] If you don’t like to retain God in your knowledge, God can turn you over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient…

Peter said:

Gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah


Let’s examine in other verses the mind, our mind, God’s mind:

Pss.115 [12] Yehovah hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.

Prov.21 [27] The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind?

Prov.29 [11] A fool utters all his mind: but a wise man keeps it in until afterwards.


Job 23 tells us:

[13] …He is in one mind, and who can turn Him? And what His soul desires, even that He does.
[14] For He performs the thing that is appointed for me: and many such things are with Him.
[15] Therefore am
I troubled at His presence: when I consider, I am afraid of Him.
[16] For God makes my heart soft, and the Almighty troubles me:

Pss.8 - Messiah

[1Yehovah our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! Who had set your glory above the heavens.
[2] Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings had You ordained strength because of your enemies, that You might still the enemy and the avenger.

[3] When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You had ordained;

[4What is man, that You Father are mindful of himAnd the son of man, that You visit Him?

[5] For You had made Him, Messiah a little lower than the angels, and had crowned Him Messiah with glory and honor.
[6] You made HimMessiah to have dominion over the works of Your hands Father; You had put all things under His feet:
[7] All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
[8] The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas.
[9Yehovah our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!



[10] And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
[11] And the Israelitish woman's
son blasphemed the name of Yehovah, and cursed.

And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)

[12] And they put him in ward, that the mind of Yehovah might be showed them.

[13] And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying,
[14] Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.

[15] And you shall speak unto the children of Israel, saying, whosoever curses his God shall bear his sin.

[16] And he that blasphemes the name of Yehovah, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemes the name of Yehovah, shall be put to death.


1Chr.16 [15] Be mindful always of God’s covenant; the word which He commanded to a thousand generations; [16] Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
[17] And did confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
Saying, unto you will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
[19] When you were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.
[20] And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;
[21] He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, God reproved kings for their sakes,
[22] Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.


1Chr.22 [7] And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build a house unto the name of Yehovah my God: 

[8] But the word of Yehovah came to me, saying, you had shed blood abundantly, and had made great wars: you shall not build a house unto my name, because you had shed much blood upon the earth in my sight.

[9] Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.

[10] He shall build a house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever.


A willing mind – God understands all the imaginations of the thoughts


[9] And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for Yehovah searches all hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts: if you seek Him, He will be found of thee; but if you forsake Him, He will cast thee off for ever.



[37Yeshua said unto him, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.



[30] …Yehovah God of Israel said:

 [35]… I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in Mine heart and in My mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before Mine anointed forever.



[22] … Yeshua said unto His disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat; neither for the body, what you shall put on.

[23] The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

[24] Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them: how much more are you better than the fowls?

[25] And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

[26] If you then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take you thought for the rest?

[27] Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

[28] If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith?

[29] … seek not what you shall eat, or what you shall drink, neither be you of doubtful mind.
[30] For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knows that you have need of these things.
[31] But rather seek you the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

[32] Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.



[17] For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. [18] But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
[19] And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.


Saul writes to the Ephesians

Watch: fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind


[1] …you had He quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
[2] Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according
to Satan - the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:
[3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh
, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

[4] But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us,

[5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Messiah, (by grace ye are saved )
[6] And had raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua:
[7] That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Messiah Yeshua.


[17] This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord Yeshua, that you henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

[18] Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

[20] But you have not so learned Messiah;
[21] If so be that you have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Yeshua:
[22] That you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
[23] And 
be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
[24] And that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
[25] Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.


Saul reports to the Romans:


[23] But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. [24] O wretched man that I am! 

Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

[25] I thank God through Yeshua the Messiah our Lord.

So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.



[2]… be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

[16] Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate.

Be not wise in your own conceits.



We should [6] That we may - with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

Saul tells the Corinthians:

1 Cor.1

[10] Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

2 Cor.11

[3] But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Messiah.


Back to the letter to the Romans


[1] There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Messiah Yeshua, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

[2] For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yeshua hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

[3] For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
[4] That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

[5] For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

[6] For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

[7] Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

[8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

[9] But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any person, have not the Spirit of Messiah, they are none of God’s.

[10] And if Messiah be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

[11] But if the Spirit of the Father that raised up Yeshua from the dead dwell in you, The Father that rose up Messiah from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you.



[34] For who hath known the mind of the Lord Yehovah /Yeshua

or who hath been His counselor?

[35] Or who hath first given to Him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

[36For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen.

1Cor.2 [16] For who hath known the mind of Yehovah, that he / she may instruct Him?

But we have the mind of Messiah


In closing:

Finally, be you all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous…

Be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah Yeshua

Please stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel

2Cor.13 [11] Finally, brethren (and sisters), farewell.

Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

Next week will be, Lord willing, the 4th Sabbath of the seven we were told to count.

Remember, soon:
