Happy Rosh Hashanah

Happy Rosh Hashanah to our Jewish and Messianic Jewish friends! The most common form of Rosh Hashanah greeting is simply: L’Shanah Tovah Tikatevu! (“May you be inscribed (in the Book of Life) for a good year!”)

Rosh Hashanah also has prophetic significance for the Christian: The blowing of the shofar is prophetic of the rapture of the church, where those who are part of the Bride of Mashiach, the “church,” will experience everlasting transformation:

“Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet (shofar): for the trumpet (shofar) shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Cor. 15:51)

Note that the Jewish Talmud also states that on Rosh Hashanah the dead will be raised (Rosh Hashanah 16b). This corresponds to the “last trump” mentioned by the Apostle Paul (1 Cor. 15:52).
