THE BIBLICAL FALL FEASTS – PART 4
FEAST OF TRUMPETS/ROSH HA SHANAH
 
Today is the full day (until sundown) of Rosh Ha Shanah, better known to us as Feast of Trumpets. It is the Jewish civil New Year’s Day. While we celebrate January 1 (New Year’s Day) as a joyous occasion, it is quite the opposite for them, a very somber time.
 
Everyone desires to start out a new year “on the right foot.” For those of us in Western culture, we traditionally make resolutions to change something for the better or we set new goals. For the Jews, it is a time for introspection, a time to evaluate your standing with God, a time for repentance and good works. It is the first day of the “ten days of awe” that culminates with the Day of Atonement on the 10th of the month of Tishri.
 
On Rosh Ha Shanah, various animals are sacrificed (in the former times) as a burnt offering to God including a young goat (kid) as a sin offering.   They hold religious services (assemblies summoned by the shofar). During the lengthy services, the shofar is blown 100 times in a sequence that uses four distinctly different blast patterns. Their focus is on repentance. 
 
The next eight days (Tishri 2-9) between the two feast days is a period where they focus on making things “right” to gain God’s favor so that He will inscribe their name in His Book of Life for one more year.
 
The orthodox view is that on the Day of Atonement (Tishri 10) God will weigh them on the balance scale of good versus bad. If good, their name will be written down for a favorable year of health, prosperity, and the “good graces” of God. If it balances bad, their name will not be written in the Book for the new year. They will be outside God’s graces.
 
A messianic Jew in ministry who lives today in Israel wrote this about what it is like during the eight-day interval called “The days of Awe” or “the days of admitting”: 
 
"Everyone you know will most likely call you and make sure everything is all right with you and them. They will ask you to forgive them for anything they may have done during the year that may have offended you. There seems to be more nice people in Israel during these days.”
 
We should also be attentive in this way…year round. The big difference for us as Christians is that we are forgiven by God’s grace of all our sins based on Messiah’s (Jesus’) shed blood. We are not “weighed on the scales of balance” to determine our destiny. We are clothed in the righteousness of Christ.
 
Because of their “need” for good works to balance the scales, the Jews as a whole, tend to be one of the most benevolent cultures in the world. They send aid wherever it is needed in the world. They also help their fellow Jews in ways not seen in our own country.  This is one reason they have survived 3,500 years which is much longer than any other ethnic group in the world. Although they have not yet accepted Jesus, they are still God’s covenant “chosen” people.

THE SUFFERING SIDE OF CHRISTIANITY
 
There has been a false teaching in the body of Christ, that when you get saved that you will not have any more problems, and that your new life will be pain free! This is absolutely not true. We only need to look at the lives of the disciples and know that this is a wrong teaching. The scriptures tell us in Psalm 34:19, “many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers us out of them all”
 
Yes, there will be many trials and tribulations, but God is with us. We have access to his promises, but there is a fight of faith to receive everything that God has provided.  The reason there are problems is sin— in a sin-sick world.   
 
When we come to know Christ, we have a new, born again spirit, but it has not been developed. It develops by faith. Faith comes as we hear God’s word, and his promises. This causes us to “believe” and then “receive”. That is why it is so important that we, as Christians, share our testimony with those that do not know God. No one evolves into a Christian. Each of us has to be born spiritually into Christianity.  Then we need to be taught. 
 
Just like it takes time for a newborn babe to learn how to eat, and speak, and walk, there will be many days that it will be hard. Have you ever watched a baby try to walk? They have to be encouraged to take the first step, but often they fall right away.  A good parent picks them up and encourages them to try again, until they are able to stand on their own two feet and walk without assistance. Just like skinned knees and “ouchies” that come for that baby, there will be afflictions for the believer. 
 
We need to teach others that not everything will be “easy”. A Christian life is not a “fast food” life. It takes time to grow and to know what is necessary to be all that God wants us to be. Be encouraged my friends that as you go along in your walk that even though things will happen to discourage you, this is “NORMAL”. 
 
Don’t give up! I honestly believe that most people that have given up would be surprised if they saw the future and how close they were to victory. Encourage one another. Build each other up. Be there for each other, and you will see that the walk is easier when you help someone in their walk. No fear! God will help us through as we go! Be blessed to be a blessing
