Hananeel Fall Feast Outreach Services

Happy New Year! Yes, to many Christians this seems odd, but in the Jewish Calendar the year begins with Rosh Hashanah September 29th, 2019. The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah actually means “Head of the Year.” Jewish tradition states, "Just like the head controls the body, our actions on Rosh Hashanah have a tremendous impact on the rest of the year." As believers we know that our salvation is secure in Messiah, but if you are in need of a renewed commitment in your life to serve the Master, this is as good a time as any for "New Year Resolutions."

Traditional Rosh Hashanah prayers read on this day express the belief that each year on this day “all inhabitants of the world pass before G‑d like a flock of sheep,” and it is decreed in the heavenly court “who shall live, and who shall die ... who shall be impoverished and who shall be enriched; who shall fall and who shall rise.” This reminds us of the parable of Jesus about the sheep and the goats in Matthew 25...

 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. [Matthew 25: 31-36]

Please pray for our fall ministry outreach events as we share the Good News of Messiah to the people of Israel and the nations. Please pray for a divine "in-gathering" of precious souls that will have an impact for all eternity.

The Sounding of the Shofar

 
The Fall Feasts of the Lord are of great importance to Jewish people and have vast import for followers of Jesus the Messiah. Rosh Hashanah, the "Feast of Trumpets" is a time of great joy for Jewish people, with prayers and songs, and the sounding of the trumpeting of the shofar. This time of celebration is followed by the somber "Days of Awe" as Jewish people await the "Day of Salvation" -- Yom Kippur. As faithful students of the scriptures we see the "Feast of Trumpets" looking back on a fearful and marvelous event, the giving of the Law by God to Moses on the mount, and we also see a future fulfillment, when the trumpet will sound. 

Rosh Hashanah Service 2016 - blowing the shofar

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. - I Thessalonians 4: 16 - 18

In these days of international trouble and conflict we have great urgency in sharing the Good News of Jesus the Messiah with Jewish people, and all who are in need of a day of salvation. Perhaps some day soon "God's Trumpet" will sound and our work here will be done. Until then we labor in these fields that are ready for harvest.

Please pray as we hold our fall outreach events and invite Jewish people to enter into the joy of salvation offered by their King, and Messiah.
