10-4-2016 “Rosh Hashanah”

God commanded Moses “On the first day of the first month you shall set up the tabernacle of the tent of meeting” (Exodus 40:2 NKJV).  This first “Rosh Hashanah” began Jewish religious worship obeying Moses’ Law.  The New Testament teaches: “It was symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience– concerned only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation. But Christ came as High Priest of the good things to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is, not of this creation” (Hebrews 9:9-11 NKJV).  Everyone celebrating “Rosh Hashanah” today is celebrating a people, worship, and law that Jesus Christ has removed.  “Rosh Hashanah” denies the Priesthood of Jesus Christ!
