Welcome to Light on the Rock

We’ve marveled at our Savior through the Passover season and now count the days to Pentecost – which means “count 50”. Yes, the early believers kept the Feasts of Yah (Leviticus 23) and the new covenant “ekklesia” actually started on Pentecost, one of those divine appointments and received the gift of the Holy Spirit. The word for “Feast” in Hebrew (moed) actually means “appointed time” or appointment. We think of “feasts” as a time of plenty of food and drink – and that’s part of the meaning but the usual word used for that is “chag” (silent c) – meaning a feast day as we think of the word.

In the coming weeks we’ll focus on the first of the divine appointments – the holy weekly sabbath, instituted by God himself resting on the 7th day of the week (Genesis 2:1-3). We’ll be covering other topics as well. Please also look at the blogs for interesting and educative topics. I welcome your comments and feedback. May our loving Father bless you all. Thank you for coming to this free site. Please let others know about this website if it is blessing you.

Feast of Trumpets 2016 - Day of shouting and blasts (Teruah)

by Philip Shields

This year’s Feast of Trumpets should be a time of great joy and jubilation for God’s children. Sound the alarm, blow the trumpet, listen to the shofar blasts. But why is it called a day of clouds and gloominess? Why don’t we call it Rosh Hashanah and what is the Bible name for this day? Does the first resurrection happen on this day – or earlier in the spring, picturing those being called out now? When does Yeshua/Jesus land on the Mt of Olives? WHY is this day called a “memorial”? A day of remembrance of what?
