Shout like you’re on a roller coaster! Blow the Shofar with wild expectation!
Today is the day to get all excited about the coming of Messiah Yeshua!
Because it’s Yom Teruah!
And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Speak to the children of Yisral, 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. You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה.’”
At the sighting of the new moon in Jerusalem this week (September 6? September 7?), it’s the “Day of the Noisome Blast” – Yom Teruah! And we’re commanded to keep it! It’s really special to יהוה, in fact!
It’s also the infamous “day and hour no man knows” (called that because of the variance in that new moon sighting). It’s the day folks in Jerusalem (Yes, the physical Jerusalem .. yes Jewish folks!) joyfully and expectantly, like a Bride expecting her BrideGroom to come sweep her away, go out into the evening sky and look for the new moon. Perhaps they’ll intone – “we might see it on the evening of the 6th.. or we might see it on the evening of the 7th.. we won’t know until we see it!” – The day and hour.. no man knows!
Here’s a thought provoking calendar adjusted subtly to actually align with the sighting of the new moon.
“You should know the season!” – Jesus (Yeshua) Matthew 24:44
And what does this “next feast to be fulfilled by Yeshua” portend? The Jewish Messiah’s APPEARING in the clouds to receive His own unto Himself! (Some might even say “rapture”! IF you see a difference between “appearing” and “coming” – “Day of Messiah” and “Day of YHWH”.. but I’m still studying that one!)
So it’s Yom Teruah at the sighting of the new moon in Jerusalem.. the infamous “day and hour no man knows” because there is some variance in that new moon sighting.. i.e. “we might see it on the evening of the 6th.. or we might see it on the evening of the 7th.. we won’t know until we see it!”
And what does this “next feast to be fulfilled by Yeshua” portend? His APPEARING (1 Thes. 4:15) in the clouds to receive His own unto Himself! (Some might even say “rapture”!)
All I know is this.. before THIS year? 2013? I was SO ignorant!
So here’s my little artwork note-taking on the event (with a great calendar I found!) – for the benefit of all of us! Click to see it BIG! Download it and put it on your desktop! And shout about the Savior!
Cos “When the moon (of the Jewish timing) hits your eye – like a big pizza pie – that’s AMORE (LOVE!)”
AMAZING FIRST VIDEO, especially! Please find time to watch it!
31 “And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
32 “And learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near.
33 “So you also, when you see all these, know that He is near, at the doors.
34 “Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away until all this takes place.
35 “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but My words shall by no means pass away.
36 “But concerning that day and the hour no one knows, not even the messengers of the heavens, but My Father only.
37 “And as the days of Noaḥ, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be.
38 “For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ entered into the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be.
40 “Then two shall be in the field, the one is taken and the one is left.
41 “Two shall be grinding at the mill, one is taken and one is left.
42 “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Master is coming.
43 “And know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
44 “Because of this, be ready too, for the Son of Aḏam is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.
45 “Who then is a trustworthy and wise servant, whom his master set over his household, to give them food in season?
46 “Blessed is that servant whom his master, having come, shall find so doing.
47 “Truly, I say to you that he shall set him over all his possessions.
48 “But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’
49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,
50 the master of that servant shall come on a day when he does not expect it, and at an hour he does not know,
51 and shall cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites – there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
