Yom Teruah has passed and Yom Kippur is right around the corner. There are seven feasts or festivals of Yahweh. These feasts are to be celebrated every year at the time God specified in His word.

Rosh Hashanah is Yom Teruah, a Biblical Feast Day
With the Biblical feast days around the corner I thought it would be nice to learn a little about them, especially if you are like me and don’t know much about them. The only thing I knew when I started looking more into the Old Testament is that everything was for the Jews and it […]
The Fall Feasts of Yahweh
