NEW BIBLICAL MONTH & FIRSTFRUITS

Like the weekly Sabbath and the annual Feasts of the Lord, which  provide an opportunity for spiritual growth and nourishment, God  designed the observance of the first day of each  new  lunar month as part of His plan for the spiritual nourishment  of  His  people. The New Moon, which is a sign that a new lunar month has begun, was observed by God's people during  the Old Testament times and the apostolic times. From the many scriptures that refer to the New Moon observance in the Old Testament, there can be no doubt that the observance of the first day of each sacred month was an essential  and basic part of the worship system that God gave to Israel. Want to learn more about this special time of the month, as well as celebrate and pray into the new month on God’s calendar?

Join us at HTNI for a celebration of the new Biblical month. The meeting is hosted by Pastor Ruth Phillips of Arise Ministries. We begin at 2 with a time of Communion, celebration and fellowship. A light meal is served. Everyone is invited.

We will enter the fourth Biblical month, Tammuz, on the evening of June 24.  The celebration of the new month will be held on Sunday, June 25, beginning at 2 p.m., following the Cutting Edge Ministries Church services.

On the 6th Sivan, exactly 49 days after the Exodus, the LORD revealed Himself on Mount Sinai. All of Israel (600,000 heads of households and their families) heard the LORD speak the first two of the Ten Commandments. Following this initial revelation, Moses again ascended Sinai for 40 days to receive the remainder of the Torah. This date coincides exactly with the festival of Shavuot. Upon descending Mount Sinai and witnessing Israel's worship of the Golden Calf, however, Moses smashed the Tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments and burned the Golden Calf. This tragic episode corresponds with Tammuz 17, a date associated with many calamities in later Jewish history. On the Biblical calendar, the fourth month of the year (counting from Nisan) is called Tammuz.  The fast of the 17th of Tammuz marks the beginning of the "Three Weeks of Sorrow," a 21 day period of national mourning which is completed on Tishah B'Av. Since Rosh Chodesh Tammuz marks the beginning of a season of teshuvah (repentance) and the Three Weeks of Sorrow, we humbly ask the LORD to help us turn to Him with all our hearts.
