The L-RD Himself delivered His message to His Ekklesia through John the apostle on the L-RD’s Day in Revelation 1:10-3:20, which we believe that this Day is Yom Teruah. In this study, we examine the clues as to why it is so and we will also discuss the commendations that are pleasant in His eyes and the commandments.
1. Rev 1:18 pertains to resurrection of Yeshua and Rosh HaShanah blowing of shofar pertains to resurrection;
2. Rev 1:20 refers to 7 candlestick, 7 ekklesia (congregations) and 7 stars while Rosh
HaShanah is in the 7th month;
3. There are seven word “repent” in the book of Revelation and all found in the letters to the ekklesia. Repenting is the theme not only of Teshuvah but of Rosh Hashanah.
4. Rev 3:4 refers to those who will endure will walk in white garment, which is alluding to Yom Kippur. It is believed that judgment is given on Rosh HaShanah and verdict is given on Yom Kippur and the wearing of white on Yom Kippur points to those who were given a new life.
5. Rev 3:5 speaks about the Book of Life and one of the symbolism in Rosh HaShana is the
Book of Life.
6. Rev 3:11 speaks about a crown. Rosh HaShanah pertains to the crowning of kings during
the monarchial period of Israel.
7. Rev 3:14 speaks about Adonai Yeshua being the true witness of the Creation of G-D and it is believed that the world was created on Rosh HaShanah.
8. Rev 3:18 speaks about the nakedness of some and to get clothing from Him to cover their nakedness. It has been a practice by many Jews to do a mikveh (baptism) on Rosh
HaShanah naked but do it in their privacy, of course.
9. Rev 3:20 stated that Adonai Yeshua is standing at the door and knock. James 5:7-9, which pertains to the L-RD’s coming, declared that the Judge is at the door. James gave an example that the farmer waits patiently for the crop in autumn, alluding to Rosh HaShanah, which is in autumn also.
10. The whole scene of the letters to the seven ekklesia pertains to judgment, which is the
whole concept and theme of Rosh Hashanah or Yom Teruah.
