Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets Declared, 5782/2021… BTW, Quakes in Various Places, Acapulco, Mexico

The new moon has been sighted in the evening of September 8th, 2021. At least we can agree it is officially a new month. What cannot be agreed upon is whether or not it is Rosh Hashanah aka Yom Teruah aka Feast of Trumpets.

The Temple Institute and secular Jews have recognized Rosh Hashanah on September 6th based on their calculations. The modern state of Israel declares this to be their civil New Year and the beginning of their seventh month, Tishri 1.

Brother Mark Harris from http://whenisthenewmoon.com/ have a different understanding. They have proclaimed the new moon to be the sixth month of Elul.

Not that this makes it truth or accuracy, but consensus Judaism has Rosh Hashanah starting September 6th, 2021 on a western Gregorian calendar. Remember, the Gregorian calendar is solar based.

The Hebrew calendar is lunar based. Jews have utilized the following procedure every month for thousands of years. At the end of a lunar cycle, the moon is dark and is not seen for 2-3 days. The new moon can be identified during this 2-3 day period …of that day or hour no one knows…

The month begins at the sighting of the new moon. Two witnesses have to confirm the sighting. Upon agreement, the two witnesses report to the high priest. When the new moon is confirmed, the trumpet (shofar/ram’s horn) is blown.

But God says this regarding His Feast, Yom Teruah…

Numbers 29:1 ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing trumpets. See also Leviticus 23:23-25

God declares the new year to take place in the spring.

Exodus 12:1-2 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,“This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you…”

The Aleutian Islands of Alaska experienced a 6.9 magnitude quake earlier in the day.

The Sandwich Islands in the south Atlantic have been inundated with a cluster of quakes ranging up to 5.3 magnitude.

The context of Jesus’ comments above is a description of what the world would look like prior to His return. When one reads Luke 21, it is not confused with today’s headlines and current events.

There are wars, threats of more wars, kingdoms against kingdoms, plagues, famines, and earthquakes.

Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. -Jesus
