Yom Teruah or Feast of Trumpets

Yom Teruah or Feast of Trumpets or Day of Shouting

Are we to remember and celebrate this feast?

There is another celebration coming up! A Feast of The Lord! I know that God wants us to remember and celebrate His Feasts.  How do I know that? Because; The Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.  In Leviticus 23 we’re told 5 times about the LORD’s Feasts, that

 it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in 
 all your dwellings.

Yom Teruah

Yom Teruah is celebrated on September 15 this year (if moon is sighted on September 14, according to Karaite Judaism).

 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, 
in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, 
a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. 
Ye shall do no servile work therein: 
but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

The Bible tells us on the day of Yom Teruah to make a noise, no work and an offering of fire.

There are Jewish traditions which celebrate Yom Teruah as the Jewish New Year. This is not a Biblical but a Rabbinical tradition. How Yom Teruah became Rosh Hashanah is best explained by Nehemia Gordon. It is undeniable and recognised by the Rabbi’s that Exodus 12:2 states, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months:  it shall be the first month of the year to you.  This reference is made when the Feast of Unleavened Bread takes place and this would be the Biblical New Year, not around Yom Teruah. Nehemia explains very well how Rosh Hashanah came about due to pagan Babylonian influences.

How to celebrate Yom Teruah?

More information on how to celebrate Yom Teruah can be found in the Book of Numbers 29.

The main thing to understand is; Noise-No work-offering and that Yom Teruah is ten days before Yom Kippur. And we are supposed to be contemplating during this period of time if we are living the life God intends for us. According to Jewish tradition these coming ten days we are to repent of our sins and ask to be forgiven so that God will include his true followers in the Book of Life.

The Feast of Yom Teruah reminds us to examine our actions to see if we are worthy of the promise of eternal life.

Many churches and believers think that the ‘Feasts have been done away with.’
However these Feasts are called ‘Feasts of the Lord to be kept throughout your generations in all your dwellings.’

These Feasts are not called Feasts of the Jewish people nor Feasts of the Christian people. No, these Feasts are called ‘Feasts of the Lord to be kept forever.’

I am accepting the invite; what about you?
