Rosh Hashanah – The Feast of Trumpets
Once again this year, I attended the Rosh Hashanah service at a local Messianic Jew church (http://www.facebook.com/TheCongregationOfTheOneNewMan).
Rosh Hashanah is known as the Feast of Trumpets. It’s feast name is Yom Teruah. The feast has prophetic significance in that it is the feast that no one knows the day or hour of. Traditionally speaking, the feast does not begin until three witnesses all agree that they have seen the first sliver of the new moon. Depending on the weather conditions, the sighting could occur immediately or it may take several days for the moon to be visible.
Since Jesus said that no man would know the day or hour of His return, many Christians believe that the Lord will return during Rosh Hashanah.
I enjoyed my evening with the One New Man congregation. The sounding of the shofar was particularly exciting. If you have never heard one, you should go look it up, it’s quite unique. Everyone should hear it so they know what to listen for upon the Lord’s return! After the service, the entire congregation was invited to stay and eat honey and apples. This is supposed to signify blessings for the new year. The people there were very welcoming and there is a great love for our Messiah here. 🙂
