Wisdom Wednesday

 L'Shana Tova!




The fear of Adonai is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: - Psa 111:10a

One day, I fell to my knees and cried out to G-d.  I asked for HIS wisdom...not the wisdom of the church to which I belonged....and certainly not the wisdom of the world.  I wanted HIS wisdom and I began to seek it diligently.


My search led me to Messianic Judaism and to joy and wisdom like I'd never, ever known before.  I've been blessed beyond measure and my joy continues to increase along with my wisdom. I 'm sure you've heard the saying "What Would Jesus Do?"  Well, dear readers, He would have celebrated Rosh Hashanah because he was Jewish.

This evening at sundown, Rosh Hashanah will begin - also known as Yom Teruah - the Day of Trumpets. The Holy Scriptures command observance of this holy day:

Leviticus 23:24-25  
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.

I am happy that my Wisdom Wednesday series is beginning with this holy day.  I invite you to learn about Rosh Hashanah from previous posts I've done on that subject (on the left side bar under labels).

I pray for you, dear Gail-Friend, to experience the joys that Yeshua (Jesus) experienced in the Feasts and Festivals...in the study of the Torah...and of Judaism.

Since my next post will be during the Ten Days of Awe, I will not post on September 11.  This is a season of quiet reflection, of seeking the face of Adonai, and of teshuvah (repentence).  I look forward to time alone with Him.  If you are visiting during that time, please learn more about the High Holy Days by clicking on that subject on the left side bar under "Labels".   I will return on Wednesday, September 18.

Rosh Hashanah is also the beginning of the new year on the Jewish calendar.  That's why I started my post with L'Shana Tova, which is Hebrew for Happy New Year!  We wish you and your families Shana Tova U'mtuka – a sweet year filled with possibilities and blessings.

Since these days ahead are about repentence, I share this song, which is profound.  I pray you will receive the message it declares:
