Jews in Jerusalem and Around the World Celebrate the Jewish New Year

Jimmy DeYoungBy Jimmy DeYoung

On the Jewish calendar, the world is in the first day of the seventh month in the year 5770, the Jewish new year which also marks the sixth day of creation week - the creation of man and woman, Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden as recorded in the Bible in Genesis 1. Rosh Hashanah, the new year, marks the start of the Fall Jewish feast days which includes Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, and Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles - the last three of the seven Jewish feast days that God gave the Jewish people 3500 years ago.

This new year, the Jewish people have grown to 5.6 million in the land of their forefathers, the land of Israel, but with a Jewish state in place in the Middle East the threat to their existence continues to intensify almost on a daily basis.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

As the Jewish people celebrate the new year 5770, the student of the Bible looks back to the beginning, creation, and forward to the day that the Jewish Messiah will come.

Jews in Jerusalem, all of Israel, and in fact around the world on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, are reminded of the sixth day of creation week and God's work in bringing man and woman, Adam and Eve, into existence. That day marked the beginning of time for the Jewish people and the day upon which their calendar began 5770 years ago. Even as we celebrate the Jewish new year, the truth is made known of a young Earth and a creation story that took place in six 24 hour days less than 6000 years ago.

However, this day also marks the day that the Jewish Messiah will return to the Earth to save the Jewish people from complete annihilation and to set up the 1000 year Millennial Kingdom that the Messiah promised the Jewish people (Matthew 24:31 on His return to Earth on Rosh Hashanah and Revelation 20:4-6 on His kingdom). Each of the Jewish feast days must be fulfilled by the Messiah Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was crucified on Passover, buried on Unleavened Bread, Resurrected on First Fruits, and the Holy Spirit came on Pentecost as Jesus said He would.

Jesus will also fulfill the last three Jewish feast days on the proper day sequences. He will return to the Earth on Rosh Hashanah, go into the temple's holy of holies on Yom Kippur, and set up the kingdom on Tabernacles. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
