June 16, 2007 - Sivan 30

This evening is Rosh Chodesh - New Moon, the 4th month of God

( There are no names for the 4th, 5th and 6th months in scripture )


Judaism calls this month "Tammuz", not good.

Ezek.8[ 14] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz - ( pagan deity ) מְבַכּוֹת אֶת־הַ תַּמּוּז -- a Sumerian deity of food or vegetation, a Phoenician deity

Read these chapters pertaining to the 4th month.

2Kgs.25 [3] And on the ninth day of the fourth month the famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land. Jer.39 [2] And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.

Jer.52 [6] And in the fourth month, in the ninth day of the month, the famine was sore in the city, so that there was no bread for the people of the land.

Ezek.1 [1] Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

Zech.8 [19] Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.

Hamas: Gaza is in our hands

Hamas forces on Thursday effectively completed their conquest of the Gaza Strip when they took control of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' “presidential” compound in Gaza City. Earlier in the day, Hamas captured the Gaza headquarters of the official Palestinian Authority security forces, which are dominated by members of Abbas' Fatah movement. Nearly every senior Fatah field commander in Gaza was said to be in Hamas custody. Scores of people were killed during the intense firefights, including a large number of captured Fatah-aligned police officers that witnesses reported seeing Hamas publicly execute. As the blood-soaked day drew to a close, a Hamas leader speaking on a local Palestinian television program announced the “end of secularism and heresy in the Gaza Strip.” Abbas responded by dissolving the Palestinian government and dismissing Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. The Islamic terror group said it had no intention of honoring that decision. The chairman later declared a state of emergency and ordered his forces to arrest dozens of Hamas fighters in Judea and Samaria to prevent a repeat of the Gaza coup there.

MIAMI - Ruth Graham, 87, the wife of Billy Graham, died on Thursday after slipping into a coma.

In this study we will explore the words light, darkness,day, night and division.

the "Sun of Righteousness" שֶׁמֶשׁ צְדָקָה

Mal.4 [2] But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

God divided the light from the darkness

וַיַּבְדֵּל אֱלֹהִים, בֵּין הָאוֹר וּבֵין הַחֹשֶׁךְ

Are you diviiding the light from the darkness in the world you created for yourselves? ?

Isa.5[ 20] Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Gen.1:5 And God called the light Day , and the darkness he called Night.

וַיִּקְרָא אֱלֹהִים לָאוֹר יוֹם, וְלַחֹשֶׁךְ קָרָא לָיְלָה

בְּ רֵאשִׁית In the beginning - רֵאשִׁית ray-sheeth' -first, beginning, best, chief

Gen.1[1 ] In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.[2] And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep . And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.[ 3] And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. [4] And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.[ 5] And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. יוֹם אֶחָד [6] And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.[7] And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.[ 8] And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. יוֹם שֵׁנִי [9 ] And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.[ 10] And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.[11] And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.[12] And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.[ 13] And the evening and the morning were the third day. יוֹם שְׁלִישִׁי - Three days without the greater light ( sun ) and lesser light ( moon)

back to Gen.1
[14] And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: [15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. [16] And God made two great lights;the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. [17] And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, [18] And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. [19] And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

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

עֹד, כָּל־יְמֵי הָאָרֶץ: זֶרַע וְקָצִיר וְקֹר וָחֹם וְקַיִץ וָחֹרֶף, וְיוֹם וָלַיְלָה־־ לֹא
יִ שְׁבֹּת וּ

H7673 שׁבת shabath - to cease, desist, rest (from labour) (Qal) to keep or observe the sabbath, Part of Speech: verb

No REST until it's over, we are at WAR. Rev.12 [17] And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.


Messiah the Light brings division. Do you love darkness or light?

[12 ] Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;[13 ] And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:[ 14] That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
[15] The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;[16 ] The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

Isa.9[ 1] Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. [2] The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light : they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined

Matt.10 [34] Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. [35] For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Mic.7[6] For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.

Matt.10 [21] And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.[22 ] And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Mark.13 [12] Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.[13 ] And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Luke.21 [16] And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. [17] And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.[18 ] But there shall not an hair of your head perish.[ 19] In your patience possess ye your souls.

John.16[1] These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.

[2] They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea , the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

John.7 [43] So there was a division among the people because of Hm. .

Isa.10[ 17] And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;

Isa.42[ 6] I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee ( Messiah ) for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

Matt.5[ 14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. [15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. [ 16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matt.6[ 22] The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light . [23 ] But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Luke.1[ 67] And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,[ 68] Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people ,[69] And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;[ 70] As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:[71 ] That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;[72] To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;[ 73] The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,[74] That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,[75 ] In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.[76] And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest : for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;[ 77] To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,[78 ] Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us ,[79] To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.[80] And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel

Luke.2[ 25] And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon ; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.[26] And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Messiah / Christ. [27] And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
28] Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,[29 ] Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:[30] For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,[31] Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; [32] A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

Luke.11[ 33] No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light . [34] The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. [35 ] Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. [ 36] If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light , as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

Luke.12[ 3] Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. [35] Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

Luke.12 [49] I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled? [51] Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: [52] For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.[53] The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

John.1[1 ] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.[2 ] The same was in the beginning with God.[ 3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.[4 ] In him was life; and the life was the light of men.[5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

[6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. [7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. [8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

[9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. [10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

[14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John.3[ 19] And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. [ 20] For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light , lest his deeds should be reproved. [ 21] But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

John.5[ 35] He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light . ( John )

John.8[ 12] Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world : he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John.9[ 5] As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world

John.11[ 9] Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world . [10] But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

John.12[ 35] Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. [ 36] While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.

[44] Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.[45] And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me .[46] I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness .

1John.1[ 5] This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.[6 ] If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:[7 ] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1John.2[ 8] Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth . [9] He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. [ 10] He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.

2Cor.6[ 14] Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

2Cor.4[ 3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:[4 ] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Messiah / Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

[6] For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness , hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Eph.5[ 8] For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

Phil.2[ 15] That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

1Thes.5[ 4] But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.[5 ] Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Rev.21.[ 22] And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.[23 ] And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. [24 ] And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.[ 25] And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there[26 ] And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.[27] And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Rev.22[ 5] And there shall be no night there ; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light : and they shall reign for ever and ever.
