All Welcome

Shabbat Shalom


Lets Pray


My ministry is to bring up topics in the Bible that have never been discussed, or mentioned in your life that God wants us to know.


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

Today is May 15, 2010


God has His own calendar

We are now in the 2nd month of God, Ziv / Zif day 30 

1 Kgs. 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.

- ziv - brightness, (figuratively) the month of flowers


***Make sure you change your Judaism calendars The 2nd month is not Iyyar as Judaism states, it is Ziv.


***New Moon this evening!

Tonight, at sundown starts the 3rd month of God, Sivan

Esth. 8 [9] Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan,


(seev) bright, splendid


God's Spring Calendar for 2010, these are the days left

 Remember: There is one extra Sabbath left, besides the 7th day Sabbath each week


This is the 6th Sabbath of the seven Sabbaths we were told to count.


We are counting the "Sabbaths" not omers

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


Lev.23 [15] And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:

 [16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.


Feast of Weeks / Pentecost is coming


Feast of Weeks, 50 - Pentecost - May 23th, 1st day of the week (Sunday), (starts sunset May 22th) 8th of Sivan, 50 days from First Fruits - a Sabbath

***This would make it 2 Sabbaths in a row


Paul observing Pentecost / Feast of Weeks

Acts 2 [1] And when the day of Pentecost / Feast of Weeks was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

 Acts 20 [16] For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost / Feast of Weeks.

 1 Cor. 16 [8] But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost / Feast of Weeks.


I explain the 4th Commandment, Sabbath, the 7th day, each week


Ex. 20 [8] Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.


My Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign

Exod. 31

[13] Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am Yehovah that doth sanctify you.

[ 14] Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death:

for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

[15] Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to Yehovah: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

[16] Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

[17 ] It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.


Exod. 35 [2] Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you an holy day, a sabbath of rest to Yehovah: whosoever doeth work therein shall be put to death.


This is how simple it is:

The Sabbath, the 7th day, is the 4th Commandment of God - NO WORK

Exod. 20 and Deut. 5

God starts His days in the evening - Gen. 1, the evening and the morning were the first day

Friday evening to Saturday evening - Lev.23 [32] ... from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath.

Sabbath is an holy convocation (holy assembly) - Lev. 23

Buying and selling is evil on the Sabbath - Neh. 13


Isa. 58 [13]

1 - not doing thine own ways,

2 - nor finding thine own pleasure,

3 - nor speaking thine own words:


60 times in the Gospels and letters it uses the word Sabbath!


Yeshua, Paul and the Apostles all observed the Sabbath:


Acts 13 [13 15, 27, 42-44], Acts 15 [21], Luke 4 [16-17], Luke. 23 [56]


Matt. 24 [20] "Sabbath in the future"

Isa. 66 22-24 A Sabbath even after there is a New Heaven and Earth

Exod. 12 [2] This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

[18] In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

[4 ] These are the feasts of Yehovah , even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

, , ,

[37 ] These are the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:

The Spring Feasts of Yehovah were fulfilled by the Messiah's first coming!

Passover - Pesach

Feast of Unleavened Bread / Hag HaMatzah

Day of Firstfruits / Bikkurim

Fifty day later:

Feast of Weeks/Shavuot- Pentecost where the Holy Spirit empowered the believers.


The "fall feast" and holy convocations represent the Second Coming of the Messiah.

The fall Feasts of Yehovah are in the "7th month called ha Ethanim not Tishri".

1Kgs.8 [2] And all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto king Solomon at the feast in the month ha Ethanim, which is the seventh month.

Blowing of the Trumpets

Day of Atonement

Feast of tabernacles

[37] These are the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations


We need to educate all people about who should participate in God's feasts

Exod. 12 [48] And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land : for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

Ezek. 44 [7] In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary , to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations. [8] And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.[9] Thus saith Yehovah GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh , shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel.

We need to educate all people about what is the new covenant.

The "church - ekklesia"

The "church" did not start in the book of Acts, as stated by many pastors.

This means no Protestant Church, denominational or non-denominational were started in the Book of Acts. (Before 70 AD)

The Judaism of today started in approx. 200 AD to 500 AD when the Talmud was put together.

Catholics started approx. 325, 350 AD

Protestants started approx. from 1500 AD


Acts 7:38 This is he (Moses), that was in the "church (ekklesia) in the wilderness" with the angel (Messiah) which spake to him in the mount Sina , and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

1 Corinthians 10:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock / Messiah that followed them: and that Rock was Messiah /Christ.

9: Neither let us tempt Messiah / Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

What was the original meaning of the word Christian?

Messiah -

The English word Christian below is Messiah followers, not Protestants or Catholics.

Messiah followers

Acts 11 [26] And when he had found him, 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 Christians first in Antioch.

Acts 26 [28] Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.

1 Pet. 4 [16] Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

"We are all from One Blood"

Acts 17:

[23] For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD ( like most churches and synagogues) . Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. (The God of Israel)

[24] God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

[25] Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

[26] And hath made of "one blood all nations of men" for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

[27] That they should seek Yehovah, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

[28] For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.



Ecc. 3 [19] one breath;

Num. 15 [16] One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

[29] Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

Num. 9 [14] And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto Yehovah; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance , both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.

Num. 15 [15] One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before Yehovah.


Gentiles ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints

Eph. 3 [6] That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body , and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel :

Eph. 2 [19 ] Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners , but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
[20] And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yeshua Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
[21] In whom all the building fitly framed together
groweth unto an holy temple in Yehovah:
[22] In whom ye also are
builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Eph. 4 [4 ] There is one body, and one Spirit , even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
[5] One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
[6] One
God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.


Gal. 3 [28] There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Yeshua.

Rom. 12 [4] For as we have many members in one body , and all members have not the same office: [ 5] So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

1 Cor. 10 [16] The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break , is it not the communion of the body of Christ?[ 17] For we being many are one bread ., and one body : for we are all partakers of that one bread .

1 Cor. 12 [12] For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. [13] For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free ; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit

[20] But now are they many members, yet but one body.

Eph. 2 [16] And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

Col. 3 [15] And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

Deut. 6 [4] Hear, O Israel: Yehovah our God is one Yehovah :

Mark 12 [29] And Yeshua answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; Yehovah our God is one Lord:

Gal. 3 [20] Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.

Mal. 2 [10] Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

Mark 12 [32] And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God ; and there is none other but he:

Rom. 3 [30] Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

1 Tim. 2 [5] For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Yeshua;

Jas. 2 [19] Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Zech. 14 [9] And Yehovah shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Yehovah and his name one.
