Yom Teruah — Day of Blowing Trumpets, Beginning of Season of Rest

Judaism calls the first day of the seventh lunar month from the spring equinox Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew for "head of the year" or new year). The Bible calls it the "day of blowing trumpets" (Num. 29:1). It does begin the fall harvest festivals described in the Bible, which are associated with the coming of God to set up His kingdom on earth, otherwise known as the "Day of the LORD" (Zech. 14:16-19). However, as Richard Agee explains, it also is the start of the cycles of seven found throughout the Bible referring to "rest" (the Hebrew words for both "rest" and "seven" are similar): seventh day of the week is the day of rest, the Shabbat (Gen. 2:3; Ex. 20:8-10); every seventh year the land must rest (Ex. 23:11); seventh group of seven years, or the Jubilee (Lev. 25).

These two sets of moedim foreshadow and remind us of the work of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). Continue reading Fall 2007 appointments with God
