Chag Sameach and a Happy New Year! (Oct. 2-4, 2016)
Feast of Trumpets
Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’”
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord. – Isaiah 54:17
Isaiah 40:3: “Prepare the way of the Lord [Yahweh]; make straight in the desert a highway for our God [Elohim].” This verse was written 800 years before the birth of Jesus / Yeshua as a prophecy in reference to John the Baptist preparing for the coming of Messiah (as confirmed in John 1:23) and represents one of the strongest affirmations of Yeshua’s deity in the Old Testament.
