Celebrating the Fall Feast Days
This coming weekend, we kick off the Fall Feasts of the LORD with the Feast of Trumpets, also known as Rosh Hashannah, the Jewish New Year. The sound of the shofar on the Feast of Trumpets signals the beginning of three weeks of festivities and the first day of the month of Tishri. Oddly enough, the Jewish New Year begins on the first day of the seventh month, not the first day of the first month. Or perhaps, not so oddly, because it is the beginning of the seventh month, The Jewish New Year and the Feast of Trumpets and the entire fall feast season echo of the seventh day Sabbath of rest. But what do these feasts have to do with the believer in Yeshua the Messiah? Aren’t these feasts Jewish feasts?
