Chag Sameach Yom Teruah (Happy Feast of Trumpets) Everyone from Marion Camp!
Today was an absolute gorgeous day and the sun was shining beautifully all day. I slept in today and then prepared for our 2:30 service. It was just me and Juan. We had a great feast and topped it off with a homemade Butterfinger cheesecake that a guy makes here at the camp; it’s as good as anything I’ve had at any restaurant! Then we dove into Genesis 21 and talked about the story of Isaac being weaned and then shot over to 1 Samuel 1 and discussed the birth of Samuel and him being dedicated after he was weaned. Then I made the connection for him that both Isaac and Samuel, two incredible men of Yahweh, were dedicated to God after they were weaned and their whole lives changed after that moment. For Isaac, there was a great celebration in his name to commemorate the event and then Ishmael was removed from his house. For Samuel, he was brought to the Temple by Hannah and his ministry as a prophet of Israel began. In both scenarios, there was a tremendous transition that happened after the time of weaning.
For us today, Rosh Hashanah represents that time where there is a major transition from the old to the new, going from children to adulthood. It’s the time where kings of Israel were coronated and a transition of power took place. All of the heavens are moving during this time and this is when judgments are handed out. For the righteous it will be a time of restoration and great blessings as the fall feasts arrive and those blessings are realized. For the wicked, their transitions will also start to manifest in the earth realm as the hand of God becomes stiffer and stiffer against them until they repent. For the people of the King, this is the time of celebration after a lengthy time of teshuvah (returning and repentance). This is the time where the caterpillar that was hidden transforms into what it was created to be and this is the moment where the children of the Most High begin to become the kings and queens in His Kingdom! It’s the time where the sweetness of the honey covers over the apple from the Garden and when the trumpets of the angels call out to His people everywhere to cross the threshold of yesterday and into the new wine.
