...1... Your tachlis (purpose) and mitzvos (good deeds) have
already been prepared by Hashem. "Thy people also shall be all of them tzaddikim; they shall inherit the Eretz
l?olam (Land forever), the Netzer (shoot, branch) of My
planting, the ma'aseh (work) of My hands, that I may be glorified." (Yeshayah
60:21) There is a connection here with the Jewish Calendar

You need to stop here and test your Moshiach literacy.
Did you know that Moshiach is also called the Netzer?
Let's examine the question Messianically.
Let's look at some of the raw data.
...2... The six most important words you will ever read you must believe B'CHOL L'VAHV-CHA (with all your heart) OO-V'CHOL NAHF-SH'CHA (and with all your soul) OO-V'CHOL M'OH-DEH-CHA (and with all your might). LOOK AT THE SIX MOST IMPORTANT WORDS YOU WILL EVER READ
...3... Moshiach's Name has been given in the Torah and the Nevi'im--the only Name given among men whereby we must come to Yeshuat Eloheinu (the Salvation of our G-d). LOOK AT MOSHIACH'S NAME IN THE TORAH AND THE NEVI'IM

Think about becoming a participant in our virtual messianic yeshiva. Or download some of its curriculum.
Or acquire or bookmark THE ORTHODOX JEWISH BIBLE.
Or join with us as a "William Carey" or a "Hudson Taylor" in reaching out to the last Mt.28:19-20 frontier, the ultra-Orthodox Yiddish-speaking 1,000,000 (so say 15 year projected population estimates). Take a look at part of Romans 3:12-24 in Yiddish that we are translating and preparing for "Shulchan Arukh" ultra-Orthodox. Also see a sample of our messianic Russian or Ladino or Spanish or French or Modern Hebrew. By contributing to this ministry you are doing the work of a "final frontier pioneer" in end-times world outreach. Hasidim are located in Jerusalem, Israel; Benei Berak, Israel; Antwerp Belgium, London and Manchester, Paris, Sydney, Melbourne, Los Angeles, Lakewood New Jersey, Postville Iowa, Williamsburg and Boro Park and Crown Heights in Brooklyn (where we are). When you send your contributions to Artists For Israel International this forgotten yet all-important cause is what you are aiding. These are the ones like the one "advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers" (Gal 1:14). What would the salvation of 1,000,000 Hasidim and another 14 million Jewish people be but "life from the dead" (Romans 11:15)? These are some of the things you can do.
Or what about the unreached 1.2 billion Muslims?
Or you can start synchronizing your calendar with Hashem's by reading the ORTHODOX JEWISH BIBLE according to the relevant Biblical materials. Set your watch according to Hashem's prophetic clock which is located on pages page 730 and page 731 and page 732 and page 733 and page 734 and page 735 and page 736 and page 737 and page 738 and page 739 and page 740 and page 741 and page 742 and page 743 and page 744 and page 745 and page 746
