Rosh HaShanah-Shanah Tovah Umetukah

Rosh HaShanah begins tonight at sundown in Israel. It is the beginning of their calendar year 5771. Today is the first day of the seventh month of Tishri. In Leviticus 23:24, God says the first day shall be a Shabbat or Sabbath ushered in with the blowing of trumpets or shofars. Yom Teruah (Day of Blowing). Many Israelis will be blessing each other with the greeting, Shanah Tovah Umetukah- A Good and Sweet Year. It is also the first day of the 10 Days of Awe in which many Jews will examine their hearts and ask for forgiveness for any wrong doings they've committed during the past year in preparation for Yom Kippur.
Shanah Tovah Umetukah...May the Lord Bless Israel this coming year with prosperity and peace!

Baruch atem b'Shem, Yeshua

We are commanded in Psalm 122:6b to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Please do so...that the Lord might grant His blessings on Israel and the Jewish people during what may be the most critical time in their history.

Amen...this is probably THE most important time ever...
Thank You, Lord, that You are in control and Your word will come to pass concerning Your people.

It's so sad that many people (perhaps most) are either not aware, or they don't care, or they don't understand the significance of this most holy time for Israel. It's "ho-hum" - even for most Christians.

The day is coming when eyes will be opened.
