Welcome to Light on the Rock

The beyond-words Fall holydays have begun. Yom Teruah, Feast of Trumpets on Sabbath Sept 19. It’s a day of blasts, shouts, alarms and trumpet blasts. God’s children are shouting with joy as their redemption draws nigh (Luke 21:28) as we eagerly await his return (Heb.9:28).  I describe in my video sermon how we come back to the Mt of Olives with Christ on white chargers – and all the many, many things that happen before and after that. 

Next is the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur – or even Kippurim, plural) on Monday Sept 28.  The world is reconciled to God and all their sins are forgiven in the blood of the slain goat and all sin is pronounced on azazel – the goat of removal – as Christ takes our sin on himself (1 Peter 2:24; Heb 9:28) and then carries all the sins of the world far away (John 1:29). A day of fasting and humbling ourselves.

Then we celebrate the 7 days of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) (Oct 3-9)– a time of our gladness, as we celebrate the rule of Yeshua over the earth; a time of plenty and blessing and peace – until nearly the end. Finally the 8th day holyday (Oct 10), starting a time of unrivaled and exciting new beginnings.
