(Leviticus 23:23-25) Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “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
This week we celebrate Yom Truah, now known as Rosh Hashanah. We are entering the biblical new year of 5779. Yom Truah (Rosh Hashanah) falls on the first day of the 7th month. The 7th Month is set apart as is the 7th day of each week and every 7th year. Our Rosh HaShannah Service is Sunday September 29 at 7:30PM. All of our Services are at Beth Messiah Fruitville.
It is exciting to recognize we are in a new season preparing to move to our own building in Bradenton; even as we move into the new year! Mark the recent time of being stretched as a chance for a new beginning, a new opportunity, to move into a higher level in your relationship with God. His invitation is open to you to draw closer to Him. He is the answer to every question you have.
The Sabbath that falls between Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur is called the Sabbath of Return. Again, it is an invitation from God to return back to Him. He wants to have an intimate relationship with you. This is a great season to leave anything in the old season behind that held you back and expect God to make next year better for you.
It is all about God and it’s all about the Messiah.
Stay focused on the All!
As always, all are invited to our free services to share in the invitation of our God.
