This week in Torah

Yom Teruah

Yom Teruah – Vayelech (and he went) – October 01, 2022

  • Torah: Deuteronomy 31:1-31:30
  • Haftara: Hosea 14:2-10, Micha 7:18-20, Joel 2:15-27
  • Brit Chadasha: Matthew 21:9-17

וַיֵּ֖לֶךְ מֹשֶׁ֑ה וַיְדַבֵּ֛ר אֶת־הַדְּבָרִ֥ים הָאֵ֖לֶּה אֶל־כׇּל־יִשְׂרָאֵֽל׃

Vayelech Moshe vayedaber et-hadevarim ha’eleh el-kol-Yisra’el.

Moses he went and spoke the following words to all Israel,

In this weeks parshat not only did Moshe speak but most notabily wrote a song, sang it, and taught it to the children of Israel. It is “the song of Moshe” and will be sung at the time of the final redemption, along with “a new song” the song of the prophet like Moshe Mashiach Yeshua. Yeshua will teach it to us just as Moshe taught us his song in next weeks parshat Haazinu. So as we wait for the final redemption and the words to the “new song of the lamb” we also wait for the words to Moshe’s song. We will wait one week for the words for one song, may it be also for the words to the Messiahs new song – In our days and in our time!

Yom Teruah: On the first day of the week we celebrate a “day of blowing” the Shofar or shouting. It is a day that is most commonly referred to as Rosh Hashanah (head of the year) the Jewish new year. It is also known as the head of years because it is believed that the world was created on this day, and so it is a new creation of years in that sense.

There are many other names for this day of celebration as well, all equally important in understanding the meaning and importance of this Moed “fixed or appointed time” of HaShem. It is exciting to view this and all the festivals of Adonai as a “dress rehearsal” Mikraw of what is to take place on those very days in the future. It is an opportunity to prepare ourselves for the roles we play in prophesy, and the kingdom.

Yom Ha’Zikkaron Day of rememberance – as we hear the sound of the shofar and the staccato shouts of the people we remember our Elohim, and He remembers us as we enter into the 10 days of awe. He will remember you and write your name unto His Sefrat of rememberance (Mal. 3:16-18)

This day is also known as:

The Day of the awakening blast.
The Time of Yacob’s trouble (Yermiyahu 30:7 – Zeph.1:14-16a)
Yom Kiddushin – Wedding of Mashiach
Feast of the Born again.
Yom Ha’Kiseh Hidden day
Yom Ha’Din Day of Judgement

And my favorite Yom Ha’Meleck ~ Coronation day of the kings of Israel, Psalm 8:4-6 Son of Man, Heb.2:9 Yeshua Lower than Angels crowned with glory.

May you be abundantly blessed, as you celebrate this Yom Teruah Sounding the 100 blasts on the Shofar, looking forward to the coming of our King. He is the King of Kings, the King over all the kings of the earth, and everything created! (see Festivals and Events for upcoming fall festivals)

HaRuach V’Kallah Bo – The spirit and the Bride say Come. We say may it be in our day and in our times Mashiach.
