a journey through God's Word
Rosh Hashanah is another name for Yom Teruah, or the Feast
of Trumpets. It literally means “the head of the year” and marks the beginning of the Jewish civil year. It falls in the month of Tishri, which is the seventh month on the Jewish religious calendar, and the first month of their civil calendar. It falls in Sept/Oct of the calendar we use, the Gregorian calendar.
The Feast of Trumpets was the first of a trio of the autumn Feasts of the Lord, sometimes collectively referred to as the Feast of Tabernacles and including the all important Day of Atonement, also called Yom Kippur.
The main purpose of the Feast of Trumpets was to announce the arrival of the seventh month and herald the final season of the Lord’s Feasts. Like a judge hammers his gavel to call attention to the beginning of a session of court, at the end of which a verdict will be announced, the Feast of Trumpets announced that in a matter of days it would be time for the Day of Atonement, so get ready! The trial is beginning, and in ten days, on the Day of Atonement, the verdict will be announced. This feast season would be the last time the Jewish males would be required to travel to Jerusalem until the following year at Passover.
