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

Today is April 10, 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 1st month of God in the scriptures called ha Aviv or Nisan - 27th day

Exod.13 [4This day came you out in the month Abib. – ha Aviv

Esth.3 [7In the first month, that is, the month Nisan…

This is the first Sabbath of the 7 Sabbaths we were told to count


The New Moon report:

April 13, 2021 Tuesday evening (all day Wednesday)


This starts Ziv, the second month

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.


Today’s Topic:

I have done this study many times. It is always good to go over…

Our seven week journey again in 2021


Spiritually speaking


As I said before, this Sabbath is the first Sabbath of the seven Sabbaths we were told to count.


Our seven week journey we observe, in memorial to meet God again on Mt. Sinai to receive the commandments and receive the Spirit of God.

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

The giving of the Law (10 commandments) and the giving of the Holy Spirit


We were told to count "Sabbaths" not the omer.

info:  An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley

עמר omer  - A dry measure of 1/10 ephah (about 2 liters)

Here is where we received our understanding to count Sabbath:

Lev.23 [15] and 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.


So again, how will you be behaving yourselves these 50 days?

(Physically and Spiritually)

Right after triumphing gloriously

Let’s read:


[1] And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

[2] And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
[3] And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of 
Yehovah in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for you have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

[4] Then said Yehovah unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

[5] And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.

[6] And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, at even, then you shall know that Yehovah had brought you out from the land of Egypt:

[7] And in the morning, then you shall see the glory of Yehovahfor that he hears your murmurings against Yehovah: and what are we that you murmur against us?

[8] And Moses said, this shall be, when Yehovah shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that Yehovah hears your murmurings which you murmur against him: and what are we? Your murmurings are not against us, but against Yehovah.

[9] And Moses spoke unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before Yehovahfor He had heard your murmurings.

[10] And it came to pass, as Aaron spoke unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of Yehovah appeared in the cloud.

[11] And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying,
I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; and you shall know that I am Yehovah your God.
[13] And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.

[14] And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

Pss.78 [22] Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
[23] Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,[24] And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
[25] Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.

Back to Exod.16

[15] And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist (did not know) what it was.

And Moses said unto them, this is the bread which Yehovah had given you to eat.

[16] This is the thing which Yehovah had commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take you every man for them which are in his tents.

[17] And the children of Israel did so, and gathered some more, some less.
[18] And when they did 
mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

[19] And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

[20] Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

[21] And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
[22] And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered 
twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.

[23] And he said unto them, This is that which Yehovah had said, Tomorrow is the rest of the holy Sabbath unto Yehovah: bake that which you will bake today, and seethe that you will seethe; and that which remains over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

[24] And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.
[25] And Moses said; eat that today; 
for today is a Sabbath unto Yehovah: today you shall not find it in the field.
[26] Six days you shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, in it there shall be none.

[27] And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

[28] And Yehovah said unto Moses, How long refuse you to keep my commandments and my laws?

[29] See, for that Yehovah had given you the Sabbath, therefore he gives you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide you every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

[30] So the people rested on the seventh day.

[31] And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.

[32] And Moses said, this is the thing which Yehovah commands fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

[33] And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of הַמָּן manna therein, and lay it up before Yehovah, to be kept for your generations.

מָן man

Meaning:  manna - the bread from Heaven that fed the Israelites for 40 years of wilderness wanderings - means 'What is it?'

[34] As Yehovah commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.
[35] And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.
[36] Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.



[1] And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of Yehovah, and pitched in Rephidim:

and there was no water for the people to drink.

[2] Wherefore the people did chide (strive, contend) with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, why chide (strive, contend) you with me? Wherefore do you tempt Yehovah?

[3] And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?

[4] And Moses cried unto Yehovah, saying, what shall I do unto this people? They are almost ready to stone me.

[5] And Yehovah said unto Moses; Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith you smote the river, take in your hand, and go.
[6] Behold, 
I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and you shall smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

[7] And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted Yehovah, saying, Is Yehovah among us, or not?

Chiding: רִיב riyb {reeb} or רִב rib {reeb} - Meaning:  1) strife, controversy, dispute 1a) strife, quarrel 1b) dispute, controversy, case (a question or problem of moral conduct; matter) at law


Let’s see what Saul (Paul) said about this

Apostle Saul instructs the Corinthians:

1 Cor. 10

[1] Moreover, brethren, I would not that you should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
[2] And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

[3] And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

[4] And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Messiah.

[5] But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

These things were for our examples

[6] Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Always watch the Mixt multitude:

 אֲסַפְסֻף  a disorderly crowd, multitude; a mob

Num. 11[4] and the “mixt multitude” that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, who shall give us flesh to eat?

[5] We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic:
[6] But our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

Terrible things too say…

Back to 1 Cor. 10

[7] Neither be you idolaters, as were some of them; as it is writtenThe people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.


Exod. 32 [1] And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not (don’t know) what is become of him.

[2] And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
[3] And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
[4] And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf:

and they said, these be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

[5] And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, tomorrow is a feast to Yehovah.

[6] And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.  L

Back to 1 Cor. 10

[8] Neither let us commit  fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

[9] Neither let us tempt Messiah, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

[10] Neither murmur you, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

הַנְּחָשִׁים הַשְּׂרָפִים  fiery serpents (or poisonous snakes)

Num. 21 [6] And Yehovah sent fiery serpents (poisonous snakes) among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

Num. 11[1] And when the people complained (murmur), it displeased Yehovah: and Yehovah heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of Yehovah burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
[33] And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, 
the wrath of Yehovah was kindled against the people, and Yehovah smote the people with a very great plague.

Back to 1 Cor. 10 

Take heed to these lessons:

[11] Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: (admonition, exhortation)

and they are written for our admonition (authoritative counsel or warning), upon whom the ends of the world are come.

**[12] Wherefore let him or her that thinks they stand, take heed, lest they  fall.

[13] There had no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:

We may all go through similar general things…

… God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it. [14] Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

This was great authoritative counsel and warning…


Num.14 [22] Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;
[23] Surely they shall not see the land which I swear unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it…

Tempted: נָסַה nacah {naw-saw'}

Meaning:  1) to test, try, prove, tempt, assay, put to the proof or test) (Piel)) to test, try) to attempt, assay, try) to test, try, prove, tempt


Phil. 2 [14] Do all things without murmurings and 

disputings: debate: - dispute, doubtful (or doubting), bad imaginations, bad reasoning, doubtful thoughts… feeling uncertain about somethings.

[15] That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom you shine as lights in the world;


Forget not God’s mighty signs, miracles and deliverances.

Don’t do any of these things physically or spiritually:

Don't murmur or complain

Don’t trust in man

Don’t lust

Don’t be an idolater

Don’t commit fornication

Neither let us tempt Messiah

נָסָה  nâsâh- A primitive root; to test; by implication to attempt: - adventure (risk), assay, prove , try

And all the rest…

Watch the mixed multitude that may try to sneak in among you to pollute you, your group, or your congregation with false doctrines, their false ways… false feelings etc..

They always look kind, nice, use a soft, pleasant voice:

Rom. 16: [17] Now I beseech you, brethren (and sisters), mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

[18] For they that are such serve not our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.


In closing for now:

Please remember: The New Moon will be April 13, 2021, Tuesday evening
