Yom Teruah – Yoel Halevi

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’” – Leviticus 23:23-25

    A day of remembering!

    We remember that we are Israel and that our Elohim is YHVH and he brought us out of Egypt with a high hand. Exodus 13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place.

    We make mention of his name and proclaim his praises throughout the nations. Yah reminds us of his covenant.
    Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

    We remember YHVH is with us against our enemies in our land. Numbers 10:9
    And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

    It is a day for Tzitzit and remembering of commandments. Numbers 15:39
    And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them ; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

    We remember the days of darkenss. Ecclesiastes 11:8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.

    We remember his intersession for us. Jeremiah 18:20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and to turn away thy wrath from them.

    We remember we broke Yah’s heart in our exile. Ezekiel 6:9
    And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.

    We remember our evil ways. Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

    We remember the salvation of the nations. Psalm 22:27 All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

    The day of remembering with shouts of trumpets and exclamations of joy proclaiming the good news that unto us a son is born and a child is given and the government is upon his shoulders. We remember the son and his bride. We make preparation of the wedding that is imminent. 1 Samuel 1:11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

    This day YHVH remembers everything he has sworn to remember and we remember everything he has commanded us to remember and call to mind. A day of rainbows. Genesis 9:15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between Elohim and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

    Remembering Yah is forgetting and forsaking all others, its wedding language.

    Most of all we remember the words of Yehsua. John 16:4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
    This scripture I love for day of remembering. Psalm 45
    My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
    Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.
    Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.
    And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.
    Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.
    Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.
    Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
    All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
    Kings’ daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.
    Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;
    So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.
    And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.
    The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.
    She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.
    With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.
    Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.
    I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

    Remembering the name of Yahweh and making mention of his name and forgetting and forsaking all others.

    The tribute that Steven wrote to Yahweh is touching, I’m writing it down to share with my family next year.

  4. Ester says

    Toda Raba! Can’t get enough of the shofar sounds!
    And Yoel’s Hebrew is so beautiful to listen to..
    And pointing us to Psalm 47 for Yom Teruah, love it!
    Thank you, Jono.

  5. Yoel Ben Shlomo says

    I agree with Kenny.
