Maybe some of you are aware that the 24th September is the start of the Rosh Hashanah Festival, according to the biblical calendar, so in Israel today all over Israel all of the people are now preparing for the sunset that evening, because the sunset will start the new year celebrations, this is the Rosh Hashanah, and that is not the new year celebration according to the gregorian calendar, that is the new year’s celebration according to the biblical calendar which God himself gave to the Jewish People in the old testament.
They celebrate the beginning or the birthday of the world, as they say it, and together with it they celebrate life, according to the ancient Jewish understanding and biblical wisdom, the Saturday, Sunday and Monday 24th 25th and 26th is the Rosh Hashanah, and they celebrate the beginning of the world and they celebrate life, as I said. Now, why do I mention that? I believe we need to celebrate life, we need to choose life, we need to speak life over one another and over ourselves. Life is an amazing, amazing blessing God gave us, we live in a world which is plagued by all kinds of ideas and all kinds of demonic practices that comes to the whole idea of life, killing and murdering is now celebrated today, almost all the movies are celebrating and promoting the idea of harming other people killing other people, murdering other people, stealing, these are all the works of the devil.
Life is the work of God, and we must celebrate life, we must choose life we must speak life over one another no matter what and how difficult the situation is, choose life! I want to read to you one of our favorite verses in the bible that is summarizing this which is Psalm 27: 13, I will have lost heart unless I had believed that I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, verse 14, wait on the Lord be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart, wait I say on the Lord. Now, this is the I believe this is the key to live a life full of God’s grace and mercy throughout our years in this world!
The world’s agenda is to take life away, Satan’s agenda is to decrease the quality of life and encourage humankind to harm one another. These are all demonic, but God’s idea is to give life, life is a blessing choose life this is Rosh Hashanah weekend. Rosh Hashanah, according to many bible prophecies, is also a biblical festival that symbolizes the rapture of the church one day a year.
Will it happen this year? Will it happen next year? We don’t know, but it might happen at any moment. The Bible says be ready anytime, so my friends God bless you keep your eyes on Jesus, choose life speak life bless one another with life, life in fullness, one more thing, The Bible says Jesus came to give life, life in fullness, John chapter 10, God sent his son Jesus to die on the cross so that he can give us life, life in fullness, so choose life my friends, God bless you.
