Understand the Feasts of the Lord: Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is referred to as the Jewish New Year and means “beginning” or “head of the year.” It is also referred to in the Bible as Yom Teruah, which means “day of shouting and blasting,” which is why it is also known as the Feast of Trumpets. 

The Feast of Trumpets

A trumpet blast in scripture signifies a shift. Just as the walls of Jericho came down with the trumpet blast, the head of the year, Rosh Hashanah, is rung in with a trumpet blast signifying the old year has passed and a new one is here!

The Head of the Year

At the “head of the year,” refocus your heads—your mind, ears, eyes, and mouth—onto the Lord. Let Him be your guide and follow His direction in the new year.
