Yom Teruah is the day of the shout! The day to sound the shofars and remember that with a shout, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah will return for His people! It is the more “Biblical” term for what is more widely known as “Rosh Hashanah,” which means “Head of the year.” We celebrate a new year and we await Messiah’s return.
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep,1 Corinthians 15:51-52, TLV
but we shall all be changed—
in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,
at the last shofar.
For the shofar will sound,
and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and we will be changed.
I love to be able to share these Biblical feast days with my family, especially our children.
They love to sound the shofar and they eagerly pour honey on the apples they have freshly picked from our apple tree. Tonight, we will begin our celebration with a traditional brisket dinner.
Are you looking for an easy, delicious brisket recipe? Look no further! I have combined several recipes that have circulated recently and I think this is a real winner:
How will you celebrate this special day? Post your Rosh Hashanah pictures on our Facebook page!
Above all, may your year be sweet and the LORD be honored! Maranatha!
