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

The date is April 30, 2022 (in the 21 Century)

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.


The God of Israel has His own Calendar:

We are now in the first month of God called ha Aviv / Nisan, day 28

Exod.12 [1] … Yehovah spoke unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,
[2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 

Exod. 13 [3] And Moses said unto the people, Remember this dayin which you came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yehovah brought you out from this place: There shall no leavened bread be eaten[4] This day came you out in the month ha Aviv - ha Aviv

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

Coming Feast:

Feast of Weeks - June 12, Sunday a Sabbath - Hag Sh'vu-ot - חַג שָׁבֻעֹת

Feast of Harvest Hag ha katseer - חַג הַקָּצִיר

Pentecost πεντηκοστή - pentēkoste

New moon Tuesday, May 3, 2022 - Zif

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.

[37] In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of Yehovah laid, in the month Zif:

[38] And in the eleventh year, in the month Bool, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.


Today’s Topic:

Our seven week journey

Let’s read again what our ancestors did many years ago after the Passover, the feast of unleavened bread and the GREAT deliverances God showed Israel.


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 omers.


 An "omer" is a "sheaf" of barley

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


Lev.23 [15And 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.


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


How will you be behaving these 50 days? (Physically and Spiritually)

Don't murmur

Exod. 15

[1] Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto Yehovah, and spoke, saying, I will sing unto Yehovah, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

[20] And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
[21] And Miriam answered them, Sing you to 
Yehovah, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Check this, right after triumphing gloriously:

[22] So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

[23] And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah   מָּרָה = bitter


[24] And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

 לוּן  lûn    לין  ̂yn = murmur


[25] And he cried unto Yehovah; and Yehovah showed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
[26] And said, If you will diligently hearken to the voice of Yehovah God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am Yehovah that heals you.


[27] And they came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the “waters”.


“From no water in verse 22, to waters in verse 27” - trust God!



[1] And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto 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 hath 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.
[15] And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for 
they did not know what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which Yehovah hath 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.

[20Notwithstanding 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 hath 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 todayfor today is a Sabbath unto Yehovahtoday 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?


[29See, for that Yehovah hath 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.

[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 journed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of Yehovah, and pitched in Rephidimand 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 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 you 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 be almost ready to stone me.


[5] And Yehovah said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with you of the elders of Israel; and your rod, wherewith you smote the river, take in your hand, and go.
[6] Behold, 
I will stand before you 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?



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 our examples


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


Num. 11[4And “the mixed 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 garlick:
[6] But our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

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 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 your gods, O Israel, which brought you 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.

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.


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


Back to 1 Cor. 10


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


Num. 11[1And when the people complained, 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 yout 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


[11] Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

[12] Wherefore let him that thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.

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


Phil. 2 [14Do all things without murmurings and disputings: [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;

In closing:


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 lust

Don’t be an idolater

Don’t commit fornication

Neither let us tempt Messiah

Watch the mixed multitude that may try to sneak in among you to pollute your group or congregation with false doctrines
