For a good new year!


The Jewish new year recently occurred; it was celebrated from September 4-6, 2013. In the Bible, it is called the Feast of Trumpets. Customs include eating apples dipped in honey (for a sweet new year) and wishing one another “L’shanah tovah!” (“For a good year!”). The Ten Days of Awe follow this celebration, during which time Jews reflect on God and their lives, and prepare themselves for the New Year. Yom Kippur comes after those 10 days, and is the Day of Atonement, a time of repentance, fasting and solemnity. Then, the New Year stands ahead, ready to be lived for God!

This year also marked the 5774th year since God created the world, according to Jewish tradition.

Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done many acts; he slew two lionlike men of Moab: also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day.
~ 1 Chronicles 11:22 ~

A most intriguing Bible verse. This warrior of King David’s was truly remarkable! It just goes to show what can be accomplished in the power of the Lord.
