Jewish Calendar, Month Of Tishri Day 1, Year 5775
Rosh HaShanah Begins This Wednesday Evening At Sunset, And Continues Through Sunset On Friday.
Rosh HaShanah (literally, “Head of the Year”) is the Jewish New Year, which marks the beginning of a 10-day period of prayer, self-examination and repentance. This period, known as the Yamim Noraim (Days of Awe or High Holy Days), is widely observed by Jews throughout the world, many with prayer and reflection in a synagogue. There also are several holiday rituals observed at home.
Rosh HaShanah is celebrated on the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei, which—because of differences in the solar and lunar calendar—corresponds to September or October on the secular calendar. Customs associated with the holiday include sounding the shofar, eating a round challah, and tasting apples and honey to represent a sweet New Year. (From Reform Judaism.Org)
Consider The Keys Of Rosh HaShanah, Which Are”The Jews, Yeshua Yamashiach, And The Shofar.”
The Jews – God’s Chosen People
“For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
Yeshua Hamashiach – Jesus
(ham-mah-SHEE-akh) The Annointed. The Messiah (John 1:41). Occurs over 500 times in the Brit Chadashah. “The Christ” (Χριστοῦ) in Koine Greek.(From Hebrews For Christians)
At Beth Yeshua, we as Messianic Jews believe Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) is the Messiah. (From Beth Yeshua Messianic Synagogue)
John 4:22, “You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.”
John 14:6. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
The Mighty One Of Israel
The Shofar, The Trumpet – Sound The Alarm
Blow The Trumpet In Zion
1 Blow the trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; For the day of the Lord is coming, For it is at hand:
2:1–17 Joel urges “all the inhabitants of the land” (v. 1) to prepare for an imminent assault by the army of the Lord. A contrite heart among the people may bring God’s compassion and blessing (v. 14).
2:1 a trumpet. The ram’s horn (Hebrew shophar) was used in warfare and to signal danger. All trembled at the trumpet blast signaling the coming of the day of the Lord (Amos 3:6; Zeph. 1:14–16).
Zion . . . my holy mountain. Jerusalem.
15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; 16 Gather the people, Sanctify the congregation, Assemble the elders, Gather the children and ursing babes; Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber, And the bride from her dressing room.
2:15, 16 Further instructions for returning to the Lord include a fast and an assembly (v. 15), a gathering and consecration of all the people, including the elders, children, nursing infants, and even those about to marry (v. 16). The staccato quality of the Hebrew poetry in these verses emphasizes the urgency of the situation.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
4:16 the dead in Christ will rise first. For Paul, those “in Christ” constitute a subcategory of those “in Adam” (the whole human race), and comprise all who participate in the salvation of Christ (1 Cor. 15:22, 23), whether they lived before or after Christ. Therefore, this rising of the “dead in Christ” is a resurrection of all the righteous dead, and not merely of New Testament believers.
