Today few people remember the biblical name of Yom Teruah and instead it is widely known as "Rosh Hashanah" which literally means "head of the year" and hence also "New Years". The transformation of Yom Teruah (Day of Shouting) into Rosh Hashanah (New Years) is the result of pagan Babylonian influence upon the Jewish nation.

On the 1st day of the Seventh month (Tishrei) the Torah commands us to observe the holy day of Yom Teruah which means "Day of Shouting" (Lev 23:23-25; Nu 29:1-6). Yom Teruah is a day of rest on which work is forbidden. One of the unique things about Yom Teruah is that the Torah does not say what the purpose of this holy day is.

Yom Teruah is mentioned in the following biblical passages:

Lev 23:23-25 "And YHVH spoke unto Moses saying, Speak to the Children of Israel saying, In the Seventh month on the first of the month will be a day of rest (Shabbaton) for you, a Remembrance Shouting, a holy convocation. You shall do no work and you will bring a fire sacrifice to YHVH."

Nu 29:1-6 "And in the Seventh month on the first of the month will be a holy convocation for you; you shall do no work, it will be a Day of Shouting for you. [List of Sacrifices for Yom Teruah]."

  1. So the REAL beginning of Gods new year is at the new moon in the spring? Like what the Protestants used to celebrate until the catholic’s called them April fools? God must be laughing at us, with our “Gregorian” SOLAR calendar, our day (sun 1st) to night-24 hour day, we don’t even know what the real year is anymore…lol

  2. Your teaching is for sure a blessing. I knew this already, but I like to listen to the truth again and again spoken by many people. Thanks and be blessed.

    • 1:1 A There are four new years:
      B (1) the first day of Nisan is the new year for kings and festivals;
      C (2) the first day of Elul is the new year for tithing cattle.
      D R. Eleazar and R. Simeon say, “It is on the first day of Tishre.”
      E (3) The first day of Tishre is the new year for the reckoning of years, for Sabbatical years, and for Jubilees,
      F for planting [trees] and for vegetables;
      G (4) the first day of Shebat is the new year for trees, in accord with the opinion of the House of Shammai.
      H The House of Hillel say, “On the fifteenth day of that month [is the new year for trees].”
      1:2 A At four seasons of the year the world is judged:
      B at Passover for grain;
      C at Pentecost for fruit of the tree;
      D at the New Year all who enter the world pass before Him like troops,
      E since it is said, He who fashions the hearts of them all, who considers all their works (Ps. 33:15);
      F and on the Festival [of Tabernacles] they are judged in regard to water.

    • I did not want MAN MADE new Years BUT Biblical New Year ,Has in Exodus Exodus 12:2 This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. = ABIB .

    • How do you sanctify the Shabbat? How do you “bind these words as a sign on your arm and on your head?” How do you properly slaughter an animal for meat “just as the Lord thy God commanded thee?” The Bible alone simply does not give enough details to answer every question. Do you use an English translation for the Torah? That was composed by man.

    • Exodus is when the “sacred calendar” begins with Nisan 1, which is the 7th month on the civil calendar.
      The best way I’ve ever heard this explained is ~ ‘we, too have a civil & a sacred calendar. ‘
      When we are born into this earth (created) BEGINS our civil calendar ~ creation. (Originally Genesis 1, Tishri 1)
      When we are “born again,” or except Y’shua our sacred calendar BEGINS. A picture of redemption as Y-H delivered Israel out of Egypt, and spoke, ‘this month shall be a new beginning for you. ~ Nisan 1. (salvation)(Pesach/ Passover ~ Nisan 14)
      So every other scripture after Exodus 12:1-2, is calculated from Yah-ew’s sacred or redemptive calendar, i, e, “In the eleventh month of the twelfth year, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me…”(Ezek. 26:1) One can figure it’s the 11th month on Y-A’s sacred/redemptive calendar is Shevat.
      This is how we begin to discern His ways; times/seasons. (Genesis 1; Luke 12)
      I think it’s AWESOME just how much He wants us to know Him!
      Shabbat Shalom 👏👑

    • What about this command: [This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.] Exodus 12v2 speaking of the passover month.

  5. Today 21st August 2017 is the eclipse and I believe that eclipses were made for signs in the sky and they announce the 1st month in spring and the 7 month on fall, announcing the great Shabbats of the year on those month. Today is Yon Teruah, today the falls season starts. Fallow Hashem and He’s creation, not the science and men’s tradition. By the way thank you for this video.
