Let Us Not Forget the Inheritance Released at Rosh Hashanah
Many Believers are not aware of the promises of inheritance released during Rosh Hashanah. Without knowing how Rosh Hashanah ushers in the hope of great plans for the biblical new year, you are left disconnected from this portion of your spiritual heritage.
Rosh Hashanah ushers in anticipation and hope of God’s great plans for you in the next season.
God never intended for you to live disconnected from your roots. He grafted you into the commonwealth of Israel and wants you to fully embrace your new spiritual heritage (Ephesians 2:12, Romans 11:17).
We understand the feeling of disconnection. However, as we began to embrace the promises of God’s covenants, He led us to observe His appointed time of Rosh Hashanah.
“The Best Is Yet to Come…”
Read Roger’s testimonial of what he discovered as he anticipated Rosh Hashanah.
- “By bringing things to the Courts of Heaven, praying, reading scriptures, and hearing encouraging words, I have more God-confidence. [During this time] I have received some much-needed corrective instruction from [listening to] Curt Landry. He said Rosh Hashanah is a time for cleansing, preparation, repentance, and growth. This was my focus going into Rosh Hashanah. I didn’t focus on worry and anxiety, otherwise, my time of preparing would have been wasted. I would’ve had a wrong attitude. I did not want to miss the best that is to come in the new year!”—Roger, Illinois
The Benefits of Rosh Hashanah | The Hope of the New Year
Celebrating Rosh Hashana rings in a New Year of hope. Rosh Hashanah is referred to as Yom Teruah in the Bible, which means ‘day of shouting and blasting.’ This is why it is also referred to as the Feast of Trumpets.
Trumpets, or shofars, are blasted during Rosh Hashanah to awaken us to God’s everlasting presence in our lives. Though He might feel far away at times, Rosh Hashanah is a time on God’s calendar for us to remember…
- He is near no matter our circumstances
“The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.”—Psalm 145:18
- He saves and delivers you
“…‘Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.’”—Exodus 14:13-14
- He made you into a new creation
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”—2 Corinthians 5:17
- His mercies are new every day
“Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”—Lamentations 3:22-23
Meditating on covenant promises as part of your inheritance aligns you with Lord for the year ahead.
Let us step into our assignment to be the head we are called to be during Rosh Hashanah.
“And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.”—Deuteronomy 28:13 (emphasis added)
