~ What is Rosh Hashanah – Feast of Trumpets ~
Is the Lord the same Yesterday, Today & Forever? Do you believe in Divine Appointments? We need to realize the Lord fulfilled the Spring Feasts not only to the day but to the very hour. Dying as the Passover Lamb on the Feast of Passover, not on the day before nor on the day after. He was crucified at the time of the morning sacrifice, died at the time of the evening sacrifice. In the grave on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and rose on the Feast of First Fruits. First Fruits was a Feast the Jews had been celebrating for over 1,000 years before Christ ever rose! It was on the very day of the Feast of Pentecost that The Holy Spirit was poured out. Pentecost had been celebrated for over 1,000 years before the book of Acts was even written. The Jews were required by God to keep the Feast of First Fruits and the Feast of Pentecost back when the Torah was written by Moses! The word “Feast” does not mean food! The Hebrew word is “Moed” and means an Appointment. Divine Appointments of God intersecting History to accomplish His will. They were called Holy “Convocations” which in the Hebrew is “Miqura” which means an “assembly” but also implies a “Dress Rehearsal”. So for over 1,000 years, the Jews were assembling for the Spring Feasts as Divine “Dress Rehearsals” for what was to come! Being performed only on the Divinely Appointed days to the exact hour so when God intersected History we would know it was Him! Come and read how God will fulfill the Fall Feasts to the day at His Second Coming!
~ Jesus Christ (Yeshua HaMashiach) fulfills the Fall Feasts to the Day ~
All verses are from the KJV
The purpose of this is not to set the timing of the rapture — pre, mid or post and we are not setting dates! We have no idea what year. We are only explaining the divinely pre appointed days so as the good servant you’ll know when to be watching to see if what happens on that day is just another “rehearsal” or the real thing! Don’t be deceived!
1 Thess 5:1,4,6 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should over take you as a thief. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
- He only comes as thief to the dead church: Rev 3:1-3
- To the Lukewarm church: Rev 3:14-17/Rev 16:15
- As a thief to the evil servant: Matt 24:48-50
- As a thief to the foolish virgins: Matt 25:11-13
God schedules His Divine appointments with man, we don’t dictate to Him when they will fit into our schedule. Know that you can have scheduled Divine Appointments with God because He has already put them in His Daytimer, and He has revealed the days and times to all of us!
Lev 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts (Appointments) of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, (Dress Rehearsals) even these are my feasts.
These are the Lord’s Feasts! Do you belong to Him? Come and experience the dress rehearsal so you’ll know what is going on when it happens! Know the Lord’s appointed times! Be there!
Jer 8:7-9 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming ; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
The Feast of Trumpets goes by many different names, each one conveying a different aspect of this Divine Appointment. We will only cover this Feast in this brochure and the other two Fall Feasts (Yom Kippur and Feast of Tabernacles) in two other brochures.
The Feast of Trumpets is also known as Yom Teruah which literally means the “Day of Blowing”. This is the only Feast Day when the shofar is blown during the service 100 times! They are blown in a set pattern of 3 different sounds, blown 3 times each for a total of 9 blasts. This series of patterns is repeated 11 times for a total of 99 blasts. The 100th blast is set apart and this is the blast that is known as the “Last Trump”!
Lev 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. (Dress Rehearsal)
The Hebrew word for “blowing of trumpets” is “Teruah” from Strongs #8643 a battle-cry; especially a clangor of trumpets, as an alarm.
~ The Time of Jacobs Trouble ~
Also known as the Great Tribulation
Jer 30:6,7 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;
Zeph 1:14-16 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
~ Day of the Awakening Blast ~
Isa 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
1 Thess 4:16,17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (Referring to Psalm 47)
Psalm 47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. The Hebrew word for shout here is “Teruah” ! And the word trumpet is “Shofar”. This is not a manmade trumpet or it’s sound. Ps 89:15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound. Here the Hebrew word for “sound” is also “Teruah” which is why we want to hear and be able to know and discern the sound of the Shofar on Yom Teruah! From these verses we see the tribulation will start on the Feast of Trumpets and the resurrection of the dead will also occur on this Feast Day but whether they happen the same year we have no idea. Other Hebrew idioms for the Feast of Trumpets:
~ The “Opening of the Books” ~
It is taught in Judaism that it is on this day the Heavenly Court is in session every year. This begins what is known as the “10 Days of Awe” until Yom Kippur when the final judgment is meted out. God opens the books and reads the account of every individual for the previous year and they have 10 days to repent before their sentence is announced and the books are closed on Yom Kippur.
Dan 7:10,11 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
Dan 12:1-2 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
~ “Opening of the Gates/Doors” ~
Ps 24:7-10 Lift up your head, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.
Rev 4:1-2 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
~ Ha Melech (Coronation of the Messiah) ~
There are 4 parts to the enthronement ceremony of a Jewish King:
- Giving of the decree
- Ceremony of taking the throne
- The Acclamation
- Subjects come and pledge their allegiance
On the Feast of Trumpets Yeshua will be crowned King of Kings and Lord of Lords!
Ps 47:5-9 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness. The princes of the people are gathered together.
~ “Yom HaKeseh” the “Hidden Day” ~
Zeph 2:3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
Ps 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
~ Ha Kiddushin/Nesuin (Wedding of Messiah) ~
Joel 2:15-16 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
The Feast of Unleavened Bread falls on the 15th of the month of Nisan, so it’s always at the full Moon, in the middle of the lunar cycle. The Feast of Tabernacles is on the 15th in the middle of the month of Tishri, at a full moon. It’s easy to find the 15th by counting from the 1st. Because everyone was to celebrate the Feast of Trumpets and it always fell on the 1st day of the lunar month, based on the sighting of the new moon, it was known as the Feast where no one ever “knew the day or the hour” it would come. The Jews in Babylon and elsewhere were to keep it as well but it would take a day to get them the news so it was always kept for 2 days and was known as “one long day ”. It was to be a day symbolically hid from Satan so even he would not be sure of its arrival!
In Dan 7:25 the antichrist changes the “times” because he doesn’t want us to be aware of the “ appointed times and seasons” of the Lord. To Summarize: The Feast of Trumpets will be the beginning of the Tribulation and also the day of the “natzal” (rapture), but no one knows whether they will happen the same year or in different years. Read our “Yom Kippur” and “Tabernacles” tracts for what will come after the tribulation begins!
