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

The date is July 9, 2022 (in the 21 Century)


July -- Julius Caesar's month

Middle English Julie
Latin Julius "Julius"
Latin Julius mensis "month of Julius"
Latin quintilis mensis "fifth month"

Quintilis (and later Julius) has always had 31 days.

Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.

The God of Israel has His own Calendar:

We are now in the 4th month of God which has no scriptural name, day 9  


Today’s Topic:


Trust friends, relatives or God?

We can’t trust our parents, friends, relatives, or anyone else’s religion from the past.

We can’t worry about where they ended up.


We need to Trust God, Yehovah and His word

We meet people like this:

Paul told us:

2 Tim. 3 [1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
[4] Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.


When we try to discuss different topics form the Bible, we are not interested in people that just want to throw “letter verses” at us out of context at us.

Yeshua said:

Matt.15 [14] Let them alone:

They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.


Luke 24 [44] And Yeshua said unto them, These are the words which I spoke unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

TaNaK - Torah, Prophets and all the rest

We meet people that keep the Sabbath but are not interested in the feasts of God and their Sabbaths.


The Seventh day Sabbath is the “4th Commandment in Exod. 20, Deut. 5.

Just keeping the 4th Commandment is great, but you have to do them all.

Matt.5 [19] whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least (by them) in the kingdom of heaven… you are not going to be there

James 2 [10] For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. [11] For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, you are become a transgressor of the law. This goes for any commandment or holy day…


Some people say we can’t do the feasts because we can’t do the offerings.

If that is correct, (I speak foolishly as some say) I guess we can’t keep the Sabbath because we don’t do the offerings also.


Some people don’t like the feasts of Yehovah, God’s feasts L

Lev.23 [2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are My feasts.

  דַּבֵּ֞ר אֶל־בְּנֵ֤י יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ אֲלֵהֶ֔ם מוֹעֲדֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה אֲשֶׁר־תִּקְרְא֥וּ אֹתָ֖ם מִקְרָאֵ֣י קֹ֑דֶשׁ אֵ֥לֶּה הֵ֖ם מוֹעֲדָֽי׃


Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them the feasts, appointed times, meetings of Yehovah which you shall proclaim them holy sacred assemblies, public meetings, these are My feasts, appointed times.



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

Back to Lev.23

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

[44] And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of Yehovah.

The Sabbath is a "holy convocation, a miqra kodesh"


A Holy convocation

מקרא miqra: convocation, convoking, reading, a calling together, sacred assembly, something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal

קדשׁ kodesh - To God : a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness


A holy convocation: you shall do no servile work therein (Lev. 23:7 KJV)

  מקְרָא־קֹ֖דֶשׁ יִהְיֶ֣ה לָכֶ֑ם כָּל־מְלֶ֥אכֶת עֲבֹדָ֖ה לֹ֥א תַעֲשֽׂוּ


No Servile work melakat avodah   מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדָה

עֲבֹדָה  avodah - domestic - work of any kind: act, bondservant, labor, service, tillage, work

מְלֶאכֶת melakat – occupation - public

Buying and selling is evil on the Sabbath

Neh. 13 [16] There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the Sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem[17] Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, what evil thing is this that you do, and profane the Sabbath day?

    מָֽה־הַדָּבָ֙ר הָרָ֤ע הַזֶּה֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר אַתֶּ֣ם עֹשִׂ֔ים

What evil thing is this that you do


2 Chr.2 [4] Behold, I build an house to the name of Yehovah my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual show bread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the Sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of Yehovah our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.

Ezra.3[5] And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of Yehovah that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto Yehovah.


So we can’t keep the Sabbath? (I speak foolishly as some say)

Let’s read some past offerings for the Sabbath

Num.28 [9] And on the Sabbath day two lambs of the first year without spot, and two tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil, and the drink offering thereof:[10] This is the burnt offering of every Sabbath, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.

2 Chr.2 [4] Behold, I build an house to the name of Yehovah my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual show bread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the Sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of Yehovah our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.

2 Chr.31 [3] He appointed also the king's portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the Sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, as it is written in the law of Yehovah.

Neh.10 [33] For the show bread, and for the continual meat offering, and for the continual burnt offering, of the Sabbaths, of the new moons, for the set feasts, and for the holy things, and for the sin offerings to make an atonement for Israel, and for all the work of the house of our God.

Ezek.45 [17] And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the Sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.


Many people use the Scriptures in an unscriptural way


A person told us we know nothing as we ought to know

Then why learn anything at all (again, I speak foolishly)…

Here is what it really says in context: pertaining to Idols

1 Cor.8

[1] Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but charity edifies.
[2] And if any man think that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.

[3] But if any man love God, the same is known of him.
As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
[5] For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
[6] But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Yeshua the Messiah, by whom are all things, and we by him.
[7] Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge…read the rest


We are interested in people that desire truth.

We study and prove all things at our congregation

2 Tim.2 [15] Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

1Thes.5 [21] Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.


Part of the Law:

The service of the Levites

Sacrifice for sin

The levities, their priesthood, the service of each family,  all physical sacrifices, temple services and all the activities that go with them:

All the physical services -

The incense, perfumes - service of the ministry, and the service of the burden in the tabernacle of the congregation, service of the sanctuary, the service of the ministry, a service of gift, the cloths of service (special garments) for all instruments of all manner of service; silver also for all instruments of silver by weight, for all instruments of every kind of service…etc

All this above has served it coarse, and is completed, it fulfilled its purpose.


These are applicable for today:

Food laws

Clean and unclean laws

Commandments, all Sabbaths, feasts


Judgments - Exod.21 [1] Now these are the judgments…




Mal.4 [4] Remember you the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

Deut.29 [21] And Yehovah shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:

Deut.30 [10] If you shalt hearken unto the voice of Yehovah your God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if you turn unto Yehovah your God with all your heart, and with all your soul

Josh.1 [8] This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.

Lev.18[4] You shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am Yehovah your God.[5] You shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am Yehovah.

Deut. 4 [45] These are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Moses spoke unto the children of Israel, after they came forth out of Egypt,

Deut.6 [1] Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which Yehovah your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land whither you go to possess it:
[2] That you might fear Yehovah your God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, you, and your son, and your son's son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged.

Rom.10 [4] For Messiah is the end of the law (animal sacrifices) for righteousness to everyone that believeth.

  כִּי הַמָּשִׁיחַ סוֹף הַתּוֹרָה לִצְדָקָה לְכָל־הַמַּאֲמִין בּוֹ

 סוֹף {sof}

Meaning:  1) end, conclusion

Usage:  AV - end 3, conclusion 1, hinder part 1; 5


τέλος telos {tel'-os}

Meaning:  1) end 1a) termination, the limit at which a thing ceases to be (always of the end of some act or state, but not of the end of a period of time) 1b) the end 1b1) the last in any succession or series 1b2) eternal 1c) that by which a thing is finished, its close, issue 1d) the end to which all things relate, the aim, purpose Origin:  from a primary tello (to set out for a definite point or goal);

Usage:  AV - end 35, custom 3, uttermost 1, finally 1, ending 1, by (one's) continual + 1519 1; 42 times




What part of the law are we talking about here?

Gal.3 [19] Wherefore then serve the law?

It was added because of transgressions, [24] Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Messiah, that we might be justified by faith. (in His Blood) 25] But after that faith (Messiah) is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. (answer - Animal sacrifices)

[26] For you are all the children of God by faith in Messiah Yeshua.

A certain person told us “no one ever told me why sacrifices are gone.

The short answer is Yeshua is our sacrifice now

For a detailed answer, read the rest of this study.

Well, to answer that, one place to read is the letter to the Hebrews by Saul / Paul


[1] Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum:

We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
[2] A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

[3] For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
[4] For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:
[5] Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, said he, that you make all things according to the pattern showed to thee in the mount.
[6] But now had he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.
[7] For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
[8] For finding fault with them, he said,

Behold, the days come, said Yehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

[9] Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, said the Lord.

[10] For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, said Yehovah;

I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
[11] And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know
Yehovah: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
[12] For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

[13] In that he said, a new covenant, he had made the first old.

Now that which decays and waxes old is ready to vanish away. (Gone)

A certain person told us “no one ever told me why sacrifices are gone.

Well, to answer that, one place to read is the letter to the Hebrews by Saul / Paul



[11] If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law (of sacrifices, temple etc.),) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?

 [12] For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

[13] For he of whom these things are spoken pertains to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

[14] For it is evident that our Lord Yeshua sprang out of Judah; of which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood.

[15] And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there arises another priest,[16] Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

[17] For he testified, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

Pss.110 [4] Yehovah had sworn, and will not repent, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

[18] For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.

[19] For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

[20] And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
21] (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him,

Yehovah swore and will not repent, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)

Pss.110 [4] Yehovah had sworn, and will not repent, You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

[22] By so much was Yeshua made a surety of a better testament.

[23] And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:

[24] But this man, Yeshua because he continues ever, had an unchangeable priesthood.

[25] Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever lives to make intercession for them.

[26] For such an high priest became He for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
[27] Who needs not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's:

for this he, Yeshua did once, when he, Yeshua offered up Himself.

[28] For the law makes men high priests which have infirmity;

but the word of the oath, Pss.110 [4] - which was since the law, makes the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.



[1] Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.

[2] For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the showbread; which is called the sanctuary.
3] And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;
4] Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
5] And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.
6] Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.
7] But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:

[8] The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
9] Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
10] Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

[11] but Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
12] Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
13] For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies to the purifying of the flesh:
14] How much more shall the blood of Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

[15] And for this cause he Yeshua is the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.



[1] For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

[2] For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
[3] But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year.

[4] For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
[5] Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he said, Sacrifice and offering you would not, but a body have you prepared me:

[6] In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
[7] Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

Pss.40 [6] Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears have you opened: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required. [7] Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

[8] I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart.

[8] Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou would not, neither had pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;

[9] Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He takes away the first, that he may establish the second.  ANSWER – nor more physical sacrifices

[10] By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yeshua the Messiah once for all.


[11] And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

[12] But this man Yeshua, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God;
[13] From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.

Pss.110 [1] Yehovah said unto my Lord the Messiah Sit you at My right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.

[14] For by one offering he had perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

[15] Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
[16] This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, said Yehovah I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
[17] And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

Jer.:31:31 - Heb. 8:8

[18] Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

[19] Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Yeshua,

[20] By a new and living way,

which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;[21] And having an high priest over the house of God;

[22] Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
[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 had 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.

[32] But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
[33] Partly, whilst ye were made a gazing stock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
[34] For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
[35] Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
[36] For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
[37] For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.
[38] Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, 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.
