שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם


Today is May 9, 2020 – in the 21 century

May -- Maia's month

Old French Mai
Old English 
Maius "of Maia"
Maius mensis "month of Maia"

Maius has always had 31 days.

Maia (meaning "the great one") is the Italic goddess of spring, the daughter of Faunus, and wife of Vulcan.

We acknowledge Yehovah’s calendar:

We are now in the 2nd month called Ziv – day 15

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 Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the house of Yehovah.

The 2nd month is not Iyyar (made – up, a lie) as Judaism states; it is Ziv as scriptures states.

It is now the 4th Sabbath of the 7 Sabbaths we were told to count.

We are on our way to the Feast of Weeks.

How are you doing?

Today’s Topic:

We are supposed to be New Creatures

2Cor.5 [17] Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.



[1] If you then be raised with Messiah, seek those things which are above, where Messiah sits on the right hand of God.

[2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

[3] For you are dead, and your life is hid with Messiah in God.
[4] When Messiah, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.

[5] Mortify: εκρω nekroo {nek-ro'-o} Meaning:  1) to make dead, to put to death, slay –


[5] Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

Concupiscence - πιθυμα epithumia {ep-ee-thoo-mee'-ah} Meaning:  1) desire, craving, longing, desire for what is forbidden, lust


[6] For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

[7] In which you also walked some time, when you lived in them.

[8] But now you also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

[9] Lie not one to another, seeing that you have put off the old man with his deeds;

[10] And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

[11] Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Messiah is all, and in all.

[12] Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Messiah forgave you, so also do you.

[14] And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.

[15] And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you are called in one body; and be you, thankful.

[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 Yehovah.

[17] And whatsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Yeshua, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.

[23] And whatsoever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;[24] Knowing that of Lord Yeshua you shall receive the reward of the inheritance:

for you serve the Lord Messiah.

[25] But he or she that does wrong shall receive for the wrong which they have done: and there is no respect of persons.


Yehovah hates these things:

Prov.6 [16] These six things doth Yehovah hate:

Yea, seven are an abomination unto Him:

[17] A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18] An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19] A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren.

Prov.13 [5] A righteous man hates lying: but a wicked man is loathsome, and cometh to shame.

Prov.17 [7] excellent speech becomes not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince.

Prov.19 [22] the desire of a man is his kindness: and a poor man is better than a liar.

Prov.30 [6] Add you not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and you be found a liar.

Prov.12 [19] the lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

Prov.21 [6] the getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death.

Prov.26 [28] a lying tongue hates those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth works ruin.

David says:

Pss.31 [6] I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in Yehovah.

[18] Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

Pss.59 [12] For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.

[13] Consume them in wrath; consume them that they may not be: and let them know that God rules in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

[16] But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for you hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
[17] Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.

Pss.120 [2] Deliver my soul, Yehovah, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.

Pss.52 [1] Why do you boast yourself thyself in mischief, O mighty man?

The goodness of God endures continually.

[2] Your tongue devises mischiefs; like a sharp razor, working deceitfully.
[3] You love evil more than good; and
lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

[4] You love all devouring words, O you deceitful tongue.

[5] God shall likewise destroy thee forever, he shall take thee away, and pluck you out of thy dwelling place, and root thee out of the land of the living. Selah.

[6] The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:
[7] Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength;
but trusts in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness.

[8] But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever.
[9] I will praise thee forever, because You hast done it: and I will wait on Your name; for it is good before thy saints.

Pss.119 [29] Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.

[163] I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.


Book of Jonah - Jonah 2 [8] they that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.


Yeshua said:


[33] The scribes and Pharisees answered Him,Yeshua, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest you, Ye shall be made free?

[34] Yeshua answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you; Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin.

[35] And the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

[36] If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed.

[37] I know that you are Abraham's seed; but you seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.

[38] I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and you do that which you have seen with your father. Satan, the devil

[39] They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Yeshua saith unto them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham.

[40] But now you seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

[41] Ye do the deeds of your father. Satan, the devil

Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

[42] Yeshua said unto them, if God were your Father, you would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but He, the Father sent me.

[43] Why do you not understand my speech? Even because you cannot hear My word.

[44] Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

[45] And because I tell you the truth, you believe me not.
[46] Which of you convinces me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do you not believe me?
[47] He that is of God hears God's words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God.

[48] Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that you art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?

[49] Yeshua answered, I have not a devil; but I honor my Father, and you do dishonor me.

[50] And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeks and judges.

[51] Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

[52] Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that you hast a devil.

Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and you sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.

[53] Art you greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom do you make thyself?

[54] Yeshua answered, If I honor myself, my honor is nothing: it is my Father that honors me; of whom you say, that he is your God:
[55] Yet you have not known him;

but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.

[56] Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
[57] Then said the Jews unto him, you are not yet fifty years old, and hast you seen Abraham?

[58] Yeshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am.


Sad to say, most people think they are getting away with their sin…

Ecc.8 [11] because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

Sentence: פִּתְגָם pithgam {pith-gawm'} Meaning:  1) edict, decree, (seems like judgment)


Num.32 [23]…your have sinned against Yehovah: and be sure your sin will

find you out.

Saul’s lessons, take heed!

1 Corth: 6

[9] Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

Be not deceived:

Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
[10] Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

[11] And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Yeshua, and by the Spirit of our God.

Gal. 5 [19]

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,[20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,[21] Envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

[22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
[23] Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Temperance - γκρτεια egkrateia {eng-krat'-i-ah}

Meaning:  1) self-control (the virtue of one who masters his desires and passions, esp. his sensual appetites)

[24] And they that are Messiah's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

[25] If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

[26] Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.


[1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

[2] And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

[3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

[4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

[5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

[6] And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
[7] He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
[8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and
all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

[27] And there shall in no wise enter into it (the holy city, new Jerusalem) anything that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

In closing for now: remember

Prov.28 [13] He that covers his sins shall not prosper: covers - כָּסָה kacah {kaw-saw'} Meaning:  1) to cover, conceal, hide

but whoso confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy.

John.5 [14] …Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto you.

John.8 [11] … And Yeshua said unto her, neither do I condemn you go,

and sin no more.

Shabbat Shalom
