Jewish Calendar

 


Unfortunately when American Forefathers established America, they forgot to Ordain Days of Remembrance that point us back to our God and Creator.  Over a period of time, several non-christian holidays were picked up from sources whose origin was not to glorify god (Christmas, Easter and other activities on the American Calendar have pagan origins, pagan symbolisms and pagan meanings).   Yes, Springtime is a time to Celebrate Passover and The Resurrection of Jesus Christ, but without the rabbits and Easter eggs please.  Yes, December is a time to Celebrate Chanukah and the Birth of Jesus Christ, but without praying to a false god named santa for gifts and blessings please.  Messianic Jews Observe Days of Remembrance that point us back to The Word of our God and Creator.  Jesus was Jewish and Celebrated many of the same Jewish Holidays, He and His Father are personally represented in many of the Ordinances.  Our challenge to you is that you will take the time to consider the Jewish Calendar and to study it, reflecting upon their meanings to you as a Believer in Jesus Christ, a Jewish Carpenter, our Lord and Savior.  Our challenge to you is that you will also begin to question some of the ‘holidays’ and ‘calendar of events’ that our currently on the America Calendar, asking questions such as which ‘religion’ did those activities originate from?  Should you as a Christian continue to participate in those activities?  Halloween belongs to the Wicca Religion… is that something you want to celebrate?  Are those spirits and curses that you want to welcome into your home and force upon the next generation?

To find out more about the Jewish Calendar and to keep up with their dates as they change from year to year, contact your local ‘Jewish Federation’ for a ‘Calendar of Jewish Holidays’.  To find out more information about the specific details of each Jewish Holiday being celebrated and observed, contact ‘The Friends of Israel’ for pamphlets from their ‘Holiday Series’.

Number 10:8-10 – “The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets.  This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come.  When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets.  Then you will be remembered by the Lord your God and rescued from your enemies.  Also at your times of rejoicing, your appointed feasts and new moon festivals, you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God.  I am the Lord your God”.

Prayer:  May God Bless you with the understanding that you were created to worship him in Spirit and in Truth.  May God put within you a desire to know Him in all things and to Seek Him and to Glorify Him in all that we see, say and do, In Jesus Name, Amen.
