Rosh Hashanah.

The Jewish New Year began Monday. Rosh Hashanah is a time of preparation and remembrance for the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. It is not only time to think about what you have done this past year. But to think about your sins against God. Jesus went out to the River Jordan to be baptized by John the Baptist. Jewish people were going out to be baptized and repent of their sins. John told Jesus that he needed to be baptized by Him. But Jesus told John that He needed to be baptized to fulfill scripture. There are 3 festivals that Jews must participate each year. The first is the festival of Trumpet/Tabernacles, (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur). The second is the festival of Passover. And last but not least, is the festival of Pentecost. Everything goes with fasting and food. Eating a meal together bonds people together. There is nothing like it. Whether you are Jewish or not, it is a good time to remember who you are in God, to repent of your sins and praise Him as Lord of all, King of kings.
