jewish new year - Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah

Shalom and welcome to what I call the grace feasts of Yahweh (all in the bible ) and is still celebrated by the Jewish people around the world and many Christians also.

In the New Testament and the Epistles we see that Jesus with his disciples celebrated together all the Feasts of Israel. Actually as you look deeper into these feasts you will see that Jesus fulfilled them all.  Does that mean we ignore them ? Well I believe of course we are not under the law and we now live by His grace but with the Spirit of the Lord upon your heart I believe you will see the wonders and joy and reflections that these feasts bring and will enrich and bring joy to your faith in Jesus Christ - Yeshua our Messiah. 

A season is ending and a NEW SEASON is beginning Written by: Madeleine Kerzner
Rosh Hashanah

Points in Rosh Hashanah:

We Celebrate the birth of Creation....
We Celebrate our King and Father God as Lord of the whole Universe
Time of New beginnings and birthing !
We each apples and honey to bless the new year (he will bring you into a good land flowing with milk and honey)
We blow the shofar as a trumpet - to call to the heavens for our Messiah !
We blow the shofar as a trumpet to call upon Justice !
Rosh Hashanah is not just a call to repentance, but a reminder of Jesus' return. "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Messiah will rise first" (1Thessalonians 4:16).

Here is the Word God has place on my heart for this brand new Season 
(for the actual liturgy of Rosh Hashanah from the Jewish perspective just click this link)
 Rosh Hashanah Jewish Liturgy   Rosh Hashanah begins on 1 Tishrei, the first day of the Jewish year—which is also the day, according to the Hebrew calendar, that God created Adam and Eve and Abraham bound Isaac and offered him to God. 

Yes it's a time to give God your Isaac .. Letting go ! Losing your life to find it ! A time to let God shape your future ! Not my will but your will be done Lord ! 

Joshua 1:.... Be Bold and very Courageous... For the Lord is with you wherever you go.... Go before your brethren armed... that you may bring them into the land of rest which I gave you...

Habb 2:2-3.... Write the vision... make it clear to you and others...... so you may run and others may help run with this vision...... though it may tarry wait for it.... it shall surely come to pass.....

Isaiah 40: ...... the Voice on one crying in the wilderness.... Make straight a highway for our God.... Every valley shall be exalted, every mountain and hill shall be made low, every crocked place shall be made straight, every rough place shall be made smooth ..... For those who wait upon the Lord shall mount up with wings as eagles... they shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint....

Eph 3:16..... The Lord will strengthen you with might by His Spirit in your inner man....

the 10 days of awe, which are retrospective days of soul searching and change, leading onto the Day of Atonement to prepare a way for the New Year:  Isaiah 40 ; 3: The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, the crooked shall be made straight and the rough places plain. 

Yes its a time to celebrate the beginning of All things... its a time to come boldy before the throne of grace and receive Help for the coming year.... Its time to lay down all we have, that He may direct our paths in this new season...

yes our Yearly spiritual accounts:

Deut 8:7-9 For the Lord is brining you into a good year a Land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills, A land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates a land of oil olive and honey.  A land where you will eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack anything in it...

Greeting: L'shanah tovah! (For a good year!)
