Shalom and many blessings to you. My Family and I celebrated Yom Teruah (The Day of Trumpets), or as it is known to the secular or Jewish world as Rosh Hashanah (Evening of 15th to evening of the 16th). Despite which day you celebrate the Feast of Yahweh based on your calendar observance, I hope and pray that it was a blessed event.
Yom Teruah marks the “biblical” month of Tishrei. It is the First month of the “Jewish” calendar and marks the Jewish new year. For Hebrew roots followers, and for anyone acquainted with the Scriptures or Bible, it is recorded as the seventh month as established by Yahweh and Mosheh (Aviv/Abib or Nisan is the First Biblical month according to the Book of Shemoth/Exodus). It officially kicks of the “Fall Feast” season – Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), Yom Ha Kippurim (Yom Kippur/ Feast of Atonement), and Sukkot (Feast of End-gathering/ Feast of Tabernacles/ Feast of Booths).
Why do we celebrate this you may ask? Yahweh, in His infinite wisdom, said His feast were to celebrated throughout our generations:
Wayyikra(Leviticus) 23:23-25: (23)And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (24)“Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering. (25)‘You do no servile work…… ”
Yahushua the Messiah reiterated the Words of the Father very simply in the Brit Chadashah (New Testament):
Mattityahu (Matthew) 5:18:“For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot (Yod/yud) or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.
Luços (Luke) 16:17: “And it is easier for the heaven and the earth to pass away than for one tittle of the Torah to fall.”
