Rosh HaShana

Written by Leon Clymer on . Posted in Yom Teruah

Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) is the day designated for the blowing of the shofar signifying Israel's return to the land of their fathers and to their Messiah. "And it shall come to pass in that day that the great trumpet shall be blown and they shall come who were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem". (Isaiah 27:12-13)

 

Rosh Hashanah ushers in the most solemn "Days of Awe", a period of ten days of judgment by the LORD. The traditional belief is that three books are opened on Rosh Hashanah, one for the completely righteous one for the wicked and one for the average person. It is during these "Days of Awe" that one has the opportunity to turn his life around and to be written in GOD'S Book of Life.

As believers, we have the way into the LAMB's Book of Life, through the Messiah Yeshua. Only Yeshua is able to say with authority that a believer in Him "shall not come into judgment, but is passed from death into life". (John 5:24)
