As we enter the days of awe, (the ten days between Rosh Hashanah & Day of Atonement) I believe it's a time of turnaround. A time to transition from things as they are to things as they should be. A time to make amends to those you have wronged and to seek forgiveness! Rosh Hashanah is also known as Yom Teruah which means to shout or make a loud noise. In the Jewish culture, this holy day begins with the blowing of the shofar or rams horn. The new year 5779 is a year of transition or change, a time of NOW! Let's forgive one another! Let's change from things as usual to things becoming blessed beyond measure or understanding. The word in all of this is "make this day one instead of one day! "THE TIME IS NOW" GENESIS 50:20 "But as for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to make happen, as it IS this day..."...NOW ...DAY ONE!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
