The Father is releasing into this year His Word and fresh depths of revelation that carries His authority to deliver and act on new things.
This period will establish the rhythm for the decade to come, and the light of His revealing what will follow.
Can Christians Celebrate Rosh HaShanah, The Feast of Trumpets?
OF COURSE! After all, they were observed with great enthusiasm by Jesus, His apostles, His disciples and nearly all first century and second century believers! 🕎 ✝️
We can learn a great deal from the celebration and its message!
The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are known as the Days of Awe when Jewish people intensify their reflection and focus on repentance and making amends with others.
It’s really beneficial to examine ourselves before The LORD, asking Him to search our hearts and bring us to a place where we doe heartfelt repentance for doing wrong to others and wrong to God.
Rosh Hashanah provides a special time to focus our hearts in this way.
We freely reflect on our lives and seek to honor God more completely in the coming year than we did during the previous one.
We rejoice over the prospect of another year to grow closer in fellowship with God and bring more honor to Him in our lives.
Whenever a believer accepts Christ and His sacrifice and believes in the reparing/ restoring that takes place through Christ for an offense or injury for sin, Jesus becomes the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets!
There was a time when these holidays were celebrated by Christians, but then they stopped being “relevant”.
What happened long after Jesus’ death, Resurrection, the destruction of the Temple or even hundreds of years later that caused believers to abandon these biblical “Feasts of The LORD” in favor of new traditions?
And since we read about them coming back in focuswhen we see them in biblical versed prophecies about the Coming Kingdom, why don’t we know more about them or observe them today?
Jesus said in John 5:26-29 that the Father has given Him authority to judge everyone:
“For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son also to have life in Himself. And He has given Him authority to execute judgment, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear His voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.”
2 Timothy 4:1 states that Jesus will judge the living and the dead. And Jesus told His followers in John 5:24:
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears My Word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.”
This day also illustrates a time when faithful Christians will be resurrected to eternal life at the time of the seventh trumpet to reign with Jesus Christ for 1,000 years, the time of His Second Coming.
1 Corinthians 15:52 says, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
Everyone in Jesus’ Coming Kingdom will be observing the solemn Feasts of The LORD. As followers of Jesus, we might want to show a little more curiosity about them and recognize their significance!
In His Shadow,
