Today is New Moon Day of the seventh month of the year 6003s.c. Today is also the Feast of Trumpets or יום תרועה (Yom Teruah). The only feast commanded that falls on New Moon Day.
 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) spoke unto Mosheh, saying,  Speak unto the children of Yisra’el, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Shabbat, a memorial of blowing of shofars, a holy assemly.  Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH).
 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) spoke to Mosheh, saying,  “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘In the seventh new moon, on the first day of the new moon, shall be a solemn rest to you, a memorial of soundings, a set-apart rehearsal.  You shall do no servile work; and you shall offer an offering made by first to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH).'”
The Feast of Trumpets is ten days before the Day of Atonement. In preparation for this day, we should reflect and look into ourselves how we have lived. Confess our sins, and reconcile with those we offended and made enemies of.
There is no better way to do it but by studying, absorbing, and embracing the Ten Commandments of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH). Today, I submit that we meditate on the first three commandments.
 And Aluahim spoke all these words, saying,  “I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) your Aluahim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery.  You shall have no other elohim before Me.
 “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heavens above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.  You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) your Aluahim, am a jealous Al, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,  but showing loving-kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.
 “You shall not bring the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) your Aluahim to naught, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) will not leave him unpunished who brings His Name to naught.
 And Elohim spoke 𐤀𐤕 eth all these words, saying,  I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) ELOHAYKA, which have brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage.  You shall have no other elohiym before me.  You shall not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:  You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) ELOHAYKA am a jealous EL, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;  And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and guard my commandments.  You shall not take 𐤀𐤕 eth-the name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) ELOHAYKA in vain; for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) will not hold him guiltless 𐤀𐤕 eth that takes 𐤀𐤕 eth-his name in vain.
How did we live for the past days, weeks, and months? Were we aware that He brought us out of bondage? Out of darkness and into his marvelous light? Or have we forgotten it and lived like our old selves? That 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) is our one and only Aluah/Eloah?
How about graven images? It does not have to be an idol of some god. It could be a person at home or in the office that we glorified and idolised. Or during the election campaign period, we championed someone and put him high above the rest. Are we guilty of breaking the this commandment?
The third commandment, equally important, is our use of the name of our Abba, our only Father 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH). Did we use His name as a curse? Or did we use His name to curse someone? Simple, innocent phrases like
oh my god turned into
oh my 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH)?
In these first three commandments, where do we stand? Are we guilty of violating these three commandments? Then let’s meditate about it today and tonight. Confess our sins, ask for forgiveness. Seek Him, and knock. For our Abba 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) is merciful and forgiving to those who asks Him and are genuine.
𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (YAHUAH/YAHUWAH) will help us. He has been helping us all these days, and weeks, and months, we are too busy and too worldly that we failed to noticed His helping hand.
Shalom, my brethren.
