The Purpose of Rosh Hashanah
The Lord Will Provide
Genesis 22: 13-14 Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.
We Are A COMMUNITY Designed To Support One Another, Build Up One Another, Fight For One Another
Nehemiah 4: 13-14 …And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, Do not be afraid of them.
Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.
Trust In The Lord Our God
Genesis 22:6-19 Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, Father? Yes, my son? Abraham replied. The fire and wood are here, Isaac said, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? Abraham answered, God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son. And the two of them went on together. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, Abraham! Abraham! Here I am, he replied. Do not lay a hand on the boy, he said. Do not do anything to him.
Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son. Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide…Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me
The Lord Will NEVER Leave Us NOR Forsake Us!
Hebrews 13:5-6 Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you. So we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Our Priority Is WORSHIP and Keeping The Lord In Front Of Us!
Worship is when we move our life-focus from self-centeredness to Christ-centeredness.
Psalm 113:3 From the rising of the sun to its going down, the Lord’s name is to be praised.
Worship is an event and a process
The focus of worship is Jesus Christ—His life, death, resurrection
The goal of worship is to become totally centered on the Lord
The worship process refers to discipleship
We must develop a worship life-style
Ecclesiastes 12:9-14 The Preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written was upright — words of truth. The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars are like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd. And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh.
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.
