from Messiahs Mandate:
Last night began Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. It is a joyous time where we here in Israel greet each other with Shana Tova and Ketiva VaChatima Tova—Happy New Year and May you be inscribed for a good year. Here is the problem. According to the Bible, Rosh Hashanah comes on the first day of the seventh month!
The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. Do no regular work, but present a food offering to the Lord.’” (Lev. 23:23-25).
The first day of the seventh month is actually as far as you can be from a New Year. Furthermore, there isn’t even a hint in the passage that it is a New Year. The words Rosh Hashanah are nowhere to be found. It is hard to imagine that God expected us to celebrate a New Year that doesn’t exist. In truth the name of the holiday that is to be celebrated on the first day of the seventh month is Yom Teruah or, the Day of Blasting Shofars, Feast of Trumpets!
