Feast of Trumpets 6003

Today is New Moon Day of the seventh month of the year 6003s.c. Today is also the Feast of Trumpets or ื™ื•ื ืชืจื•ืขื” (Yom Teruah). The only feast commanded that falls on New Moon Day.

[23] And ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) spoke unto Mosheh, saying, [24] Speak unto the children of Yisra'el, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Shabbat, a memorial of blowing of shofars, a holy assemly. [25] Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH).

Vayiqra (Leviticus) 23:23-25 [eth-Cepher]

[23] ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) spoke to Mosheh, saying, [24] "Speak to the children of Yisra'el, saying, 'In the seventh new moon, on the first day of the new moon, shall be a solemn rest to you, a memorial of soundings, a set-apart rehearsal. [25] You shall do no servile work; and you shall offer an offering made by first to ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH).'"

Vayiqra (Leviticus) 23:23-25 [SQV]

The Feast of Trumpets is ten days before the Day of Atonement. In preparation for this day, we should reflect and look into ourselves how we have lived. Confess our sins, and reconcile with those we offended and made enemies of.

There is no better way to do it but by studying, absorbing, and embracing the Ten Commandments of ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH). Today, I submit that we meditate on the first three commandments.

[1] And Aluahim spoke all these words, saying, [2] "I am ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) your Aluahim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery. [3] You shall have no other elohim before Me.

[4] "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heavens above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. [5] You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I, ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) your Aluahim, am a jealous Al, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me, [6] but showing loving-kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.

[7] "You shall not bring the Name of ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) your Aluahim to naught, for ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) will not leave him unpunished who brings His Name to naught.

Shemot (Exodus) 20:1-7 [SQV]

[1] And Elohim spoke ๐ค€๐ค• eth all these words, saying, [2] I am ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) ELOHAYKA, which have brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage. [3] You shall have no other elohiym before me. [4] You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: [5] You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) ELOHAYKA am a jealous EL, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; [6] And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and guard my commandments. [7] You shall not take ๐ค€๐ค• eth-the name of ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) ELOHAYKA in vain; for ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) will not hold him guiltless ๐ค€๐ค• eth that takes ๐ค€๐ค• eth-his name in vain.

Meditation

How did we live for the past days, weeks, and months? Were we aware that He brought us out of bondage? Out of darkness and into his marvelous light? Or have we forgotten it and lived like our old selves? That ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) is our one and only Aluah/Eloah?

How about graven images? It does not have to be an idol of some god. It could be a person at home or in the office that we glorified and idolised. Or during the election campaign period, we championed someone and put him high above the rest. Are we guilty of breaking the this commandment?

The third commandment, equally important, is our use of the name of our Abba, our only Father ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH). Did we use His name as a curse? Or did we use His name to curse someone? Simple, innocent phrases like oh my god turned into oh my ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH)?

In these first three commandments, where do we stand? Are we guilty of violating these three commandments? Then let's meditate about it today and tonight. Confess our sins, ask for forgiveness. Seek Him, and knock. For our Abba ๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) is merciful and forgiving to those who asks Him and are genuine.

๐ค‰๐ค„๐ค…๐ค„ (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) will help us. He has been helping us all these days, and weeks, and months, we are too busy and too worldly that we failed to noticed His helping hand.

Shalom, my brethren.
