Jews in Jerusalem and around the world are celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year

Listen to Today's Program Play

Rosh Hashanah, the new year for the Jewish people marks 5774 on the Jewish calendar and is one of the seven Jewish feast days that the Jews celebrate on a yearly basis. It is a feast also known as the Feast of Trumpets, a holy day that is very family oriented in the Jewish community.

The Jews believe that it was 5774 years ago when God created the heavens, the earth and all that in them is, a fact that lends itself to the belief that we are living on a young earth.

Rosh Hashanah not only marks the new year for the Jewish people, but it is also the day that Jesus Christ will return to the earth, that is according to Bible prophecy.

As hundreds of shofars, the ram's horn were blown in Jerusalem at the Western Wall, Jews marked the first of the three fall feast days the Feast of Trumpets known also as Rosh Hashanah or the new year. Jews celebrate 5774 as their new year. Jews also believe that 5774 years ago the Lord created the heavens, the earth, and all that in them is. God's chosen people also believe that the act of creation took place on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem which orthodox Jewish scholarship believes is the original site of the Garden of Eden, Isaiah 51:3 and Ezekiel 36:35.

According to the record of Scripture, Jesus Christ fulfilled the prophetic significance of the four spring Jewish feasts. Jesus Christ was crucified on Passover, buried on Unleavened Bread, He resurrected on First Fruits, and the Holy Spirit came to Jerusalem on the Feast of Pentecost as the Lord had promised. Looking back through history, you can see that Jesus Christ fulfilled these first four feasts of the seven Jewish feast days in the proper day sequences, thus to be consistent, Jesus Christ must fulfill the last three feasts, the fall feasts also in the proper day sequences.

The next feast to be fulfilled will be the Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah and that happens when Jesus Christ comes back to the earth. Now, I am not talking about the Rapture of the Church, but the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and that is the time when Jesus will tell the angel to blow the trumpet and call a solemn assembly, Matthew 24:31.

This Rosh Hashanah, the new year for the Jewish people, the Feast of Trumpets is indeed a reminder that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
