Today is the celebration of the creation of the world and all that is in it

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Explain Rosh Hashanah and then Trumpets.

SH: Sure Jimmy I’d be glad to do that. Rosh Hashanah is the civil New Year. Israel has two New Years, 2 main ones anyways. The religious New Year which falls at Passover and the civil New Year which falls out on the seventh month. For your listeners you know when school year starts in August or September that’s a new year even though it’s not January. And if an account has his fiscal year in July that’s different and that’s exactly the way it is for the Jewish people and the Jewish calendar.

Rosh Hashanah is the head of the year. And Jimmy for Jewish people celebrating Rosh Hashanah 5,780 it is believed traditionally that that’s the exact date that God created Adam and Eve, the creation. While most Jewish people would not recognize a young Earth scientifically they would divide themselves scientifically from religiously because according to Jewish tradition the Earth is less than 5,780 years old. That was the way I was raised Jimmy and I believe it. I believe the Earth is less than 10,000 years and I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if it’s less than 6,000 years. But either way Jewish people understand that’s the year that they have for Rosh Hashanah.

It is Feast of Trumpets as well as outlined in the book of Leviticus. For your listeners that would be the book in their Bible probably where the pages are still stuck together. But we want to open them up don’t we Jimmy. And Leviticus 23 outlines the 7 Biblical Feasts that is so important in the calendar and I think applicable to the church of Jesus Christ.

JD: Steve Herzig explaining how today is the celebration day of the creation of the Earth and all that is in it and also Rosh Hashanah.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As Steve reported Jews believe that God created all things in this world in a week of creation some 5,780 years ago. Rosh Hashanah which is the Jewish New Year 5,780 marks that celebration. You could debate that creation week was exactly 5,780 years ago but it had to be in that approximate time period. For sure creation took place in six 24-hour days since the Bible says six times in Genesis chapter 1 the night and the day, that’s 24-hour days. By any definition we must understand Biblical creation if we are to understand Bible prophecy. They are both absolute in all their details. God created everything and he is coming again.
