One in Messiah Congregation
קָּהָל אֶחָד בְּמָּשִׁיחַ
A part of the Congregation of Israel
Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s,
December -- the tenth month
Middle English decembre
Old French decembre
Latin december "tenth month"
Latin decem "ten" + -ber (adj. suffix)
December had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.
Yehovah has His own calendar
We are now in the 10 month, 7th day of God called Tevet טֵבֵת
Esth.2  So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign.

Yeshua said Saul is a chosen vessel unto Him
Saul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Yeshua the Messiah
Our beloved brother Saul, known as Paul
I have been hearing some people think Saul, known as Paul is a false prophet. They obviously don’t know what they are saying.
They are unlearned, unstable with no understanding, they wrest, pervert Saul’s words.
Beware when you talk against a chosen vessel of God!
The 9th Commandment
 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
 And Miriam and Aaron spake against
Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an
 And they said, Hath Yehovah indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And Yehovah heard it.
 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
 And Yehovah
spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto
Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the
congregation. And they three came out.
 And Yehovah came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth.
 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I Yehovah will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.
 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of Yehovah shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
 And the anger of Yehovah
was kindled against them; and he departed.
 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
Brother Peter acknowledges Saul a beloved brother, why don’t you?
This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up
your pure minds by way of remembrance:
 That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord
as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,
and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works
that are therein shall be burned up.
 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
 As also in all Paul’s epistles, letters, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, pervert as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also,
being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
Saul’s life in scripture
 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul.
 And Saul,
yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against
the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined
round about him a light from heaven:
 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Yeshua whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.
 And Saul arose from the earth;
and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and
brought him into Damascus.
 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.
 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.
 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street
which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth,
 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have
heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at
 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.
 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he, Saul is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:
 For I will shew Saul how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.
 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Yeshua, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been
scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened.
Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.
 And straightway he preached Messiah in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Messiah.
 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:
 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.
 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.
 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
 But Barnabas took Saul, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Yeshua.
 And Saul was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem.
 And Saul spake boldly in the name of the Lord Yeshua, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.
 Which when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus.
 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.
Other references of Saul in Acts
Acts 11  Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul:
 And when he had found Saul, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Messiahians first in Antioch.
Acts 12  But the word of God grew and multiplied. And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.
Saul, know as Paul knows scripture
Now there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and teachers;
as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius
of Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with
Herod the tetrarch, and Saul.
 As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.
 And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
 So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.
 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus:
 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.
 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.
 Now when Paul and his company loosed from Paphos, they came to Perga in Pamphylia: and John departing from them returned to Jerusalem.
 But when they departed from Perga, they came to Antioch in Pisidia, and went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and sat down.
 And after the reading of the law and the prophets the rulers of the synagogue sent unto them, saying, Ye men and brethren, if ye have any word of exhortation for the people, say on.
 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with his hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God, give audience.

 When John had first preached before his coming the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
 And as John fulfilled his course, he said, Whom think ye that I am? I am not he. But, behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.
 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.
 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.
 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.
 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre.
 But God raised him from the dead:
 And he was seen many days of them which came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are his witnesses unto the people.
 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers,
 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yeshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the sure mercies of David.
 Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
 But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.
 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath.
 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God.
 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming.
 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.
 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
 And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region.
 But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.
 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.
 And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.
Saul sent by Yeshua to the Gentiles, nations
Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Thou art permitted to speak for thyself. Then Paul
stretched forth the hand, and answered for himself:
 I think myself happy, king Agrippa, because I shall answer for myself this day before thee touching all the things whereof I am accused of the Jews:
 Especially because I know thee to be expert in all customs and questions which are among the Jews: wherefore I beseech thee to hear me patiently.
 My manner of life from my youth, which was at the first among mine own nation at Jerusalem, know all the Jews;
 Which knew me from the beginning, if they would testify, that after the most straitest sect of our religion I lived a Pharisee.
 And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers:
 Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews.
 Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?
 I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
 Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.
 And I punished them oft in every synagogue, and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly mad against them, I persecuted them even unto strange cities.
 Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests,
 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
 And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.
 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
 Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:
 But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.
 For these causes the Jews caught me in the temple, and went about to kill me.
 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:
 That Messiah should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.
 And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
 But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.
 For the king knoweth of these things, before whom also I speak freely: for I am persuaded that none of these things are hidden from him; for this thing was not done in a corner.
 King Agrippa, believest thou the prophets? I know that thou believest.
 Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
And Paul said, I would to God, that not only thou, but also all that hear me
this day, were both almost, and altogether such as I am, except
 And when he had thus spoken, the king rose up, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them:
 And when they were gone aside, they talked between themselves, saying, This man doeth nothing worthy of death or of bonds.
 Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Caesar.
Read all the rest of Acts pertaining to Saul, known as Paul
 And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and
received all that came in unto him,
 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.
Saul was sent to the Gentiles, nations, here are the letters – Saul was called to be an apostle
End means = goal
Christ / Messiah is our GOAL
τελος telos tel'-os From a primary word τελλω tello (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly the point aimed at as a limit, the result. Most people think Paul is saying the law is ended, wrong!
What he is saying is Messiah’s sacrifice is the goal of all the sacrifices in Torah, which were shadows, our schoolmaster which brought us to faith in His blood for true atonement.
Shadows of “things to come”
The feasts and holy days of Yehovah are all about the 1st and 2nd coming of the Messiah
Saul is cautioning the Colossians about evil men that might enter the congregation and try to get you to break torah.
How do people get out of this verse, “don’t judge me brother”?
 And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.
 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
2:16: Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday , or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17: Which are a shadow of "things to come" (future tense); but the body is of Messiah / Christ.
 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
Let's go over a few words here in Greek:
judge - κρινω krino: to try to condemn, to separate, put asunder, to pick out, to be of opinion, judge, to pronounce an opinion concerning right and wrong, to contend, to dispute
holyday - εορτη heorte -heh-or-tay' - a festival: - feast, holyday.
shadow - σκια skia : shadow, an image cast by an object and representing the form of that object, a sketch, outline
new moon -noumēnia νουμηνία - noo-may-nee'-ah - the new moon
meat - βρῶσις brōsis - that which is eaten, clean food
Sabbath days - sabbaton - σάββατον - sab'-bat-on - the Sabbath or day of weekly repose from secular avocations - sabbath days during the holydays or feasts.
Wherefore were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Saul?
Tis’ the season to be pagan
Beware of the "false image" of love
Beware of "false feelings and emotions"
These pagan feasts bring on false loneliness, depression, suicide and oh yes, debt.
