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

Today is December 29, 2018 - in the 21 Century

3 days left to 2018

 December -- the tenth month - now the 12 month

Middle English decembre
Old French
december "tenth month"
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 10th month Tevet – 21th day

Esth.2 [16] 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. טֵבֵת

A few verse to think about:


Gen.8 [22] While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.


Pss.74 [17] Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.


Job 26 [10] He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.


Ecc.1 [4] One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but (it seems like) the earth abideth for ever.


Prov.23 [18] For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.



Today’s Topic:


Prov.29 [18] Where there is no vision, the people perish:

but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.


My vision in the past was to have a school, camp, even music classes.


After 17 years, I see the world is not conducive to our doctrinal teachings.


There are just too many Jesus’, gospels, spirits, bibles, internet teachings to deal with.


The 21 century would even baffle Paul and the rest of the Apostles.


My new vision starts like this:


Come and learn about topics never discussed in your church or synagogue like this:

The calendar of God

The feasts of Yehovah

The 7th day Sabbath


Clean and unclean, and many more…


Have questions?  Come, let us reason together.

We at One in Messiah Congregation are part of the Israel of God.


We are connecting people around the world for true fellowship in Messiah.


Let us know where you live, perhaps we know people there so you can fellowship with them.


We desire to have a One in Messiah Congregation all around the world so people can fellowship in Messiah Yeshua.


Come and praise the Messiah with us!

I hear some people say,

Where I live, no one believes in the Sabbath, Feasts of Yehovah, etc.


I don't know where to go for services. I am all alone.


Have you ever wondered?


Does anyone know of true believers in my city?


Maybe we can connect you to someone in your city


I would love to have a congregation to attend where I live, how do I find one?


Why don't the believers in Messiah have their own community with like-minded people?


Where can I find true fellowship in Messiah?


Where can I go for the Sabbath?


Where can I learn the Scriptures?


Where can my children go to school?


I have so many questions, where can I seek scriptural counsel on these matters?


I want to tithe but don't know who to partner with.


I need answers from the scriptures on how to prove who is the Messiah.


The list of questions goes on and on…


Contact me any time at 615 712-3931


Please join us with your prayers, fasting, dedication and finances.


Please call us if you would like to help at 615 712-3931.


All of us together as, One in Messiah Congregation, we shall see these


Godly desires turn into Godly realities.


Join us to learn about the Messiah from the Hebrew Scriptures


To study Scripture


To learn how to answer anti-missionaries


For a full Messianic education


For prayer time and fasting


To learn about the Sabbath


To learn about the Feasts of Yehovah


For introduction to the Hebrew language


To learn your connection to the Israel of God


Please bring all questions -  We are teachers

Congregation Vision Statement


The One in Messiah Congregation is going on 18 years old this year, 2019.


We, at our congregation have a Bible school that builds an integrated model on "Biblical" education, which encourages and facilitates family involvement and lifelong learning.


We embrace diversity of backgrounds as we seek to celebrate our common bonds of Messianic identity: intellectually, spiritually, and culturally.


All of our values are taught from a biblical perspective; all decisions are made within the framework of biblical thought.


We seek to increase biblical knowledge in the many of our disciplines in the areas of Hebrew, History, Social Justice, and all areas of everyday life …with the Bible as our anchor.


We seek to strengthen the relevance of believers in the Messiah as the foundation of everyday living.


We pray to find families that delight in meaningful biblical exploration in informal, yet structured environments.


We encourage all to seek the knowledge of God in scriptural readings, praying, fasting, writing, discussion, liturgical expression and non-traditional (play, art, music, acting, and nature) realms.


We strive for biblical enrichment in the home, and any other environment you may encounter. (In school, at work we should be testimonies for God)


We believe God for a faculty that promotes Godly education.


After a few years of attending our congregation you should be able to teach others.


Our teachers should have child- centered focus, embody professionalism, knowledge, dedication, commitment, enthusiasm, creativity, integrity, patience, and accountability.


They must share their time to ensure the continuation of biblical growth and development, with their own biblical education as a priority.


Our biblical congregation is a home away from home, a holy place.


Our passion for the scriptures pervades our curriculum, celebrations, surroundings, behaviors, attitudes, and approaches.


We believe at One in Messiah in living the sacred values we teach.


We teach God's kindness, compassion, fear He deserves, His truths, His righteousness.


We feel compelled to see those values in our congregation – school classrooms, offices, playgrounds and all aspects of a believer's life.

We want to come together to celebrate the joys of the Messiah and His observances, as we create a safe haven for behavior and involvement.


We believe that education occurs both inside and outside of our congregation.


The Bible is a way of life and therefore needs to be encountered through a variety of experiences.


We take these thoughts very seriously.


As a result, the following programs are included as part of our biblical educational program.


We plan to have a family education at One in Messiah Congregation designed to promote Messianic and biblical practices as a way of life.


Our programs will help our families to become more involved in a "biblical life" and in school.


Parents who also attend our biblical studies should demonstrate to their children that biblical learning is a lifelong and family centered process.


All parents are encouraged to participate in the studies.


Some subjects will involve exploring ways to observe the yearly holy days and Shabbat with scriptural source background.


We would love to have other likeminded professionals join us.


We will look into many concerns of society, culture, and religion from a variety of different scriptural perspectives.


Our curriculum, studies will be designed to teach our children about the Feasts of Yehovah and observances that are part of biblical requirements.


We realize that these "Feasts of Yehovah" should be practiced and observed.


It is of great importance for families to experience these feasts of Yehovah and the Sabbaths in an individual as well as communal setting.


We encourage you to engage in these observances in your home and to join the One in Messiah family when we celebrate together the Feasts of Yehovah.


We would love, one day to organize a trip to Israel.


A Biblical summer experience offers an intensive exposure to the ideals and values of the Messianic community in a unique setting.


We will encourage all children to take advantage of these fine programs.


Financial assistance, we pray, will be available through the offerings we receive.


As you can see, we believe God for many things.


He is a BIG GOD.


I say again, please join us with your prayers, fasting, dedication and finances.


Please call us with all and any ideas you may have at 615 712-3931.


In One in Messiah Congregation, we hope to see these Godly desires turn into Godly realities.


Prov.11 [30] The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.


Praise Yah!


One in Messiah Congregation


Acts 20

[1] And after the uproar was ceased, Paul called unto him the disciples, and embraced them, and departed for to go into Macedonia.
[2] And when he had gone over those parts, and had given them much exhortation, he came into Greece,
[3] And there abode three months. And when the Jews laid wait for him, as he was about to sail into Syria, he purposed to return through Macedonia.
[4] And there accompanied him into Asia Sopater of Berea; and of the Thessalonians, Aristarchus and Secundus; and Gaius of Derbe, and Timotheus; and of Asia, Tychicus and Trophimus.
[5] These going before tarried for us at Troas.
[6] And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.
[7] And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
[8] And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
[9] And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
[10] And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
[11] When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.
[12] And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted.
[13] And we went before to ship, and sailed unto Assos, there intending to take in Paul: for so had he appointed, minding himself to go afoot.
[14] And when he met with us at Assos, we took him in, and came to Mitylene.
[15] And we sailed thence, and came the next day over against Chios; and the next day we arrived at Samos, and tarried at Trogyllium; and the next day we came to Miletus.
[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.
[17] And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.

[18] And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
[19] Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:
[20] And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,
[21] Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
[22] And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:
[23] Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.

[24] But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

[25] And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.

[26] Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.
[27] For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

[28] Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

[29] For I know this, that after my departing
shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

[30] Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

[31] Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.
[32] And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
[33] I have coveted no man's silver, or gold, or apparel.
[34] Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
[35] I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
[36] And when he had thus spoken, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all.
[37] And they all wept sore, and fell on Paul's neck, and kissed him,
[38] Sorrowing most of all for the words which he spake, that they should see his face no more. And they accompanied him unto the ship.

Acts 28: [30] And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, [31] Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.


In closing:

None of these evil things move us. We shall continue on!

I pray as this new Gregorian New Years, 2019 begins; it will bring us people that want to learn the ways of Yehovah.

All that do come, we will preach the kingdom of God, and teach those things which concern the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.


Shabbat Shalom

See you next year, Lord wiling J
