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

The date is Sept. 24, 2022 (in the 21 Century)


September - the seventh month – now the ninth month

Middle English septembre
Latin September
septem "seven" + -ber (adj. suffix)
september mensis "seventh month"

September had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 30 days long.



The God of Israel has His own Calendar:

We are now in the 6th month of God called Elul  אֱל֑וּל, day 27

Neh.6 [15] So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, 

Neh.7 [73] So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the 
Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.

My wife and I have been doing these Holy days for 21 years:


The start of the coming fall Feast and Holy Days of Yehovah, 2022 - ha Ethanim, the seventh month of God is coming in 4 days again


All these days start the evening before:


הָאֵתָנִים - ha Ethanim – 1Kings 8:2 - the 7th month

Blowing of Trumpets, a Sabbath - 28 of September

The Day of Atonement, a Sabbath - 7th of October

The feast of Tabernacles - 2 Sabbaths - 12th to the 19th of October


Again - Just 4 more days

Lev.23 [24] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall you have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.


You know the fall feast and holidays that we do in rehearsal point to the second coming of our Lord Yeshua in some one’s lifetime in the future.

Today’s Topic:


Waiting for the Messiah


I noticed a while back there are many references to the return of Yeshua some day in the future.


Here are a few to ponder


Paul to the Gentiles, nations:

1 Thes.1 [9] For they themselves show of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; [10] …to wait for the Fathers’s Son from heaven, whom the Father raised from the dead, even Yeshua, which delivered us from the wrath to come.


Matt.16 [28] Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, until they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.


I know we read this chapter many times, however it is talking about the return of Yeshua one day.


[1] And Yeshua went out, and departed from the temple:

and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.

[2] And Yeshua said unto them, See you not all these things?

verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

[3] And as he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying,

Tell us, when shall these things be?

and what shall be the sign of your coming,

and of the end of the world?

[4] And Yeshua answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
[5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and shall deceive many.
[6] And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
[7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

[8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.

[9] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

[10] And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
[11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
[12] And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

[13] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

[14] And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations;

and then shall the end come.

[15] When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand(ing) in the holy place, (the 3rd Temple) (whoso reads, let him understand:)

[16] Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
[17] Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:
[18] Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

[19] And woe unto them that are with child,

 and to them that give suck in those days!

[20] But pray you that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the Sabbath day:

[21] For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

[22] And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
[23] Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Messiah, or there; believe it not.
[24] For there shall arise false Messiah, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

[25] Behold, I have told you before.

[26] Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

[27] For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shins even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

[28] For where ever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

[29] Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

[30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven:

and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,

and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

[31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

[32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is nigh:[33] So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

[34] Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

[36] But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

[37] But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

[42] Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord doth come.

[43] But know this that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

[44] Therefore be you also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man cometh.

[45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?[46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.[47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

[48] But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delays his coming;
[49] And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
[50] The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looks not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
[51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Similar accounts in Mark and Luke


Matt.26 [64] Yeshua said unto him, you have said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall you see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.


Mark 14 [61] …. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed? [62] And Yeshua said, I am (the Messiah):

 and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.



1 Cor.1

[4] I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Yeshua the Messiah;
[5] That in everything you are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
[6] Even as the testimony of Messiah was confirmed in you:
[7] So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah: [8] Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.


1 Thes.3

[11] Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.
[12] And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
[13] To the end he may establish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah with all his saints.


1 Thes.4

[15] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent, go before them which are asleep.

[16] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first:
[17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
[18] Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


1 Thes.5 [23] … the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.



[1] Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and by our gathering together unto him,
[2] That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Messiah is at hand.
[3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
[4] Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
[5] Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
[6] And now you know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time.
[7] For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way.
[8] And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
[9] Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
[10] And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
[11] And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
[12] That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
[13] But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
[14] Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
[15] Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
[16] Now our Lord Yeshua the Messiah himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
[17] Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.



[7] Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.[8] Be you also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws nigh.



[1] This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
[2] That you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior:

[3] Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

[4] And saying, where is the promise of his coming?

for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

[5] For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and (then) in the water:
[6] Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

[8] But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
[9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

[10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

[11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
[12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

[13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.
[14] Wherefore, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

[15] And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;[16] As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
[17] You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.

[18] But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Yeshua the Messiah.

To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen.


A few verses pertaining to the different ways of looking at “judging and judgment”:


A few in Torah

A breastplate of judgment


[1] You shall not raise a false report: put not your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
2] You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shall you speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
3] Neither shall you countenance a poor man in his cause.
4] If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again.

[5] If you see the ass of him that hates thee lying under his burden, and would forbear to help him, you shall surely help with him.

[6] You shall not wrest the judgment of your poor in his cause.

[7] Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay you not: for I will not justify the wicked.
8] And you shall take no gift: for the gift blinds the wise, and perverts the words of the righteous.
9] Also you shall not oppress a stranger: for you know the heart of a stranger, seeing you were strangers in the land of Egypt.


[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.


[15] You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: you shall not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.

[35] You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

[37] Therefore shall you observe all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: I am the LORD.



[1] Thus said Yehovah, Keep you judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.


Some Gospels and Letters

Matt.5 [21] You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: [22] But / and I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother or sister without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother or sister, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, you fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.



[1] Judge not, that you be not judged.

[2] For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.

[3] And why do you behold the mote that is in your brother's or sister’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?
4] Or how will you say to your brother or sister, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye?
5] You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's or sister’s eye..


[12] And when you come into a house, salute it.
[13] And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you.
[14] And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when you depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.
[15] Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment than for that city.



[23] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!

for you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone.


John 5

[22]For the Father judges no man, but had committed all judgment unto the Son:

[23] That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which had sent him.

[24] Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

[25] Verily, verily, I say unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

[26] For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27] And had given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

[28] Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
[29] And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

[30] I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.



[1] Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whosoever you are that judges: for wherein you judge  another, you condemn yourself; for you that judge does the same things.
2] But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
3] And do you think this O man, that judges them which do such things, and doest the same, that you shall escape the judgment of God?


John 9

[39] And Yeshua said, for judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

John 12

[31] Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.



[10] Now I beseech you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.



[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.


John 7

[24] Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.



[27] And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:


James 2

[13] For he shall have judgment without mercy, that had showed no mercy; and mercy rejoices against judgment.
