שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם


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

The date is October 9, 2021


October - the eighth month - (now the 10th month)

Middle English octobre
Latin October
octo "eight" + -ber (adj. suffix)
october mensis "eighth month" - October has always had 31 days.


Yehovah has His own calendar which is deleted from the world 

We are in the eighth month of God called Bul /Bool   בּוּל  day 2

1Kgs.6 [38]… in the month Bul, which is the eighth month

not Heshvan or Mar Heshvan – as Judaism states falsely

Marheshvan - Heshvan are names of the 8th month found in the Talmud not the Hebrew Bible…

Today’s topic:


Let’s meet in our Congregation, church or synagogue


A short review of meeting and assemblage places in scripture.


I noticed some were good for our God and our people and some were bad, evil.


This is a short important study for today – Let’s meet at the right place!


We shall start:

57 matches

Assemble (for many different reasons) some for our God, some for pagan gods’ pagan activities.

Here are a few:

Assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation

Assembled together at Shiloh

 Assembled themselves together, and encamped in Mizpeh

Assembled themselves, and they came to the battle

Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.

All the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month Ethanim, which is the seventh month.

David assembled the children of Aaron, and the Levites

David assembled all the princes of Israel, the princes of the tribes, and the captains of the companies that ministered to the king by course, and the captains over the thousands, and captains over the hundreds, and the stewards over all the substance and possession of the king, and of his sons, with the officers, and with the mighty men, and with all the valiant men, unto Jerusalem.

There assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great congregation.

Assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.

Assembled with fasting, and with sack clothes, and earth upon them

The Jews that were at Shushan assembled together on the thirteenth day thereof; and on the fourteenth thereof; and on the fifteenth day of the same they rested, and made it a day of feasting and gladness.

Thus said the Lord Yehovah; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

I God will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel…

I God may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

Yeshua being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, said he, you have heard of me.

[17]… beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues [18] And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.


[9] And when he Yeshua was departed thence, he went into their synagogue: [10] And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered.

they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath days? that they might accuse him. [11] And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the Sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
[12] How much then is a man better than a sheep?

Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the Sabbath days.



[54] … when he Yeshua was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?


Mark 1

[23] … there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, [24] Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Yeshua of Nazareth? Are you come to destroy us? I know you who thou are, the Holy One of God.
25] And Yeshua rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
26] And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

Acts.7 - the church in the wilderness

[37] This is that Moses,

which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. [38] This is He, Moses that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel (Word of God) which spoke to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us… [39] To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt,[40] Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we don’t know  what is become of him.



[22] Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem:



[1] Paul, a prisoner of Yeshua The Messiah, and Timothy our brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellow laborer,[2] And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in your house…



[1] I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:
[2] That you receive her in the Lord, as becomes saints, and that you assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a scourer of many, and of myself also.
[3] Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Messiah Yeshua:
[4] Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all
the churches of the Gentiles.
[5] Likewise greet
the church that is in their house. Salute my well beloved Epaenetus, who is the first fruits of Achaia unto Messiah.



[19] The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.

Col.4 [15] Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house.


Acts.13 [1] Now there were in the church that was at Antioch


Rom.16[16] Salute one another with a holy kiss. The churches of Messiah salute you.


2 Cor.8 [1] Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia…


Col.4 [15] Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house


1Pet.5 [13] The church that is at Babylon…


Matt.6 what the hypocrites do in their synagogues

[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 thee, 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 thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
[4] That your alms may be in secret: and thy Father which sees in secret himself shall reward thee 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 thy closet, and when you hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which sees in secret shall reward thee 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 know what things you have need of, before you ask him.

[9] After this manner therefore pray you: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
[10] Thy 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 thy face;
[18] That you appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which sees in secret, shall reward thee openly.

[19] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
[20] But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
[21] For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

[22] The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
[23] But if your eye
be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

[24] No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.

[25] Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what shall you put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

[26] Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?

[27] Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

[28] And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
[29] And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

[30] Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

[31] Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

[32] (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.

[33] But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

[34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.



[16] I Yeshua have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.

I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

[17] And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come.

And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.


In closing for today, Oct. 9, 2021:

Heb.10 [23] Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised)
[24] And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: [25] not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

[26] For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more sacrifice for sins,
[27] But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

[28] He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
[29] Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
[30] For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, said Yehovah.

And again, Yehovah shall judge his people.

[31] It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

[38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man drawback, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
[39] But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.


Remember, tis the season to be pagan” is coming, and already in some stores!

I am reminded again to inform you to beware of the false image of love, false emotions, loneliness, depression, financial drain, suicide and the artificial false festival lights they put up. Satan really sets the stage for you.

Some Pagan religions are having classes at their facilities to address these (false) issues.

Beware if you feel or hear a voice telling you to separate yourself from the congregation, go off on your own and read or whatever…


If people would look this up:

The origin of Halloween is the Celtic Festival of Samhain, lord of death and evil spirits.


Once upon a time, Halloween was banned - Halloween was not celebrated in this country until 1845

Some do made up Fallfest, Fall Festival, look it up, you will be surprised



Once upon a time, Christmas was banned in 1659 in the new land know as America


 Please do not follow any made up false stories (as facts), traditions, feasts, events, places or people.


Let us meet at the right place with God!


Shabbat Shalom
