And so it begins; the High Holy Days that God appointed. Tomorrow evening at sunset is the start of Rosh Hashanah, The Feast of Trumpets, a two-day festival celebrating the beginning of the biblical new year. It is a time to reflect, take a deeper look into our lives, scrutinize our behavior, repent, seek God’s forgiveness, and evaluate our relationship with him. As Christ-followers, I believe it is essential that we set aside some time to observe the appointed feasts; it’s biblical, and Jesus celebrated them. They are significant in that they are prophetic and may point to the time of Jesus’s return. Join me tomorrow evening, September 25, 2022, and set the alarm for sunset as a reminder of the beginning of The Feast of Trumpets. Spend a few moments in prayer and repentance to honor God. Though we may not celebrate in the Jewish traditions because we weren’t born into that culture, we were adopted into the family and should participate as well as we can.
The Feast of Trumpets
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the LORD.” Leviticus 23:23-25
