Feast of Trumpets
It is always a joy to celebrate the feasts of YHVH.
This year was unique.
It felt as though someone did not want us to celebrate.
We had to deal with some spiritual warfare.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Eph 6:12)
But it was beautiful to see the men anoint the children with oil and pray over them. We witnessed the power of the shofar as we blew them on this set apart day. We were grateful that YHVH gives the victory when we trust in Him. He is truly our Salvation, our Rock, and our Deliverer.
Once the spiritual attacks were dealt with, we had a wonderful day. The air was delightfully crisp and pleasant. We had plenty of good food. We enjoyed each other's company. The children blew paper shofars as they marched around the house. (I see a wonderful connection to Joshua here!) We also danced and spinned and played on the soft green grass.
Here are some glimpses into our day.
We hope you had a lovely Yom Teruah!
