Introducing our very first travel vlog series, Faith in the City: Fall for His Dates!
He has been faithful to guide and protect us from Dallas Fort Worth all the way to New England to visit with family and then to New York! As we drove, He impressed on me the need to creatively invite our audience to meet Him for His Appointed Times. The first episode is an invitation to Yom Teruah and Rosh Hashana or the Hebrew new year, which begins tonight! As I prayed, He confirmed that the first episode should be where most of the world witnesses the Gregorian new year - a crossroads of excitement, distraction, and noise known as Times Square. How appropriate to begin at this location to shift the focus back onto His special Times!
During Yom Teruah (or the Day of Sounding of the Trumpets) we sound the trumpets as commanded, and during Rosh Hashana we begin a new cycle of Torah readings as well as honor Him as King. It is a wonderful time for new beginnings and a powerful reminder that He is on His throne even when the world around us seems to spin out of control.
You can celebrate Rosh Hashanah - invite family and friends to a nice dinner including apples dipped in honey, other sweet foods, a round challah loaf to sybolize His crown and begin afresh the cycle of the new year as well as attend a service (we recommend a Messianic one) to hear the sound of the shofar, Scriptures read, and liturgy recited along with other believers.
Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.
Leviticus 23:24 New King James Version
68 “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel,
For He has visited and redeemed His people,
69 And has raised up a HORN OF SALVATION for us
In the house of His servant David,
70 As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets,
Who have been since the world began,
Luke 1:68-70 New King James Version (Emphasis ours.)
13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 [a]Because narrow is the gate and [b]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Matthew 7:13-14 New King James Version
