Feast Of Trumpets

The Feast Of Trumpets Holy Day

Every nation observes their own national or patriotic holidays. These special days are reminders of important events in a country’s history. They provide continuity between a nation’s past and the present. Usually citizens can understand and explain at least some of the significance of these celebrations. Yet paradoxically, those same citizens very seldomly understand much about the days on which they worship and honor their own Creator Yahweh. The nonbiblical, pagan roots of the man-made and traditional holidays like Easter and Christmas are much celebrated and revered in so many parts of the world. As a result, people usually assume these holidays serve as true representations of the themes of the Holy Scripture. Yet the Bible nowhere commands their observance, nor does it record these holidays being observed by the early New Testament Church or Assembly. However, our Father in heaven Yahweh does truly command other, rarely noticed, festivals in His Word (Bible). In today’s message, we are going to share with you the Feast of Trumpets holy day, one of the seven feasts day of the Almighty Yahweh which pictures His plan on the earth and its citizens. This is one Christian holy day that you must know!

To start off, the first three of Yahweh’s commanded Festivals (Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Pentecost) come in the spring. They all picture spiritual aspects of the plan of Yahweh. The last four Festivals (Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, Last Great Day) all come in the late summer and fall. They all picture the finality and completion of the Creator Yahweh’s plan in all of His created human beings and things. Today, we are going to focus on the Feast of Trumpets, also known as the Festival of Trumpets. With the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit of Yahweh, we are going to explore and discuss with you, based on Bible, the true significant meanings of this Holy Day. Why the symbolism of the trumpets? What’s the amplification of the meaning of trumpets? What is Yahshua the Messiah’s prophetic teaching about it? What does the book of Revelation in the Bible say about it? What are the unprecedented events that are associated with the Feast of Trumpets? These vital questions we will answer for you all throughout this message.

The Holy Day of Feast of Trumpets depicts nothing less than the return of the Savior of mankind, Yahshua the Messiah, to the earth to establish the Kingdom of Yahweh! Trumpets, whether metal instruments or rams’ horns, were used in the Bible for several purposes. The New Testament clearly shows that at what is called the first resurrection, with the blowing of a great trumpet, “the Master Himself (Yahshua the Messiah) will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Elohim. And the dead in Messiah will rise first” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). In 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 the apostle Paul writes, “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” Another key Bible verse states: “Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Sovereign and of His Messiah, and He shall reign for ever and ever” (Revelation 11:15).

Moreover, the Feast of Trumpets pictures the time when Yahshua the Messiah steps into this world and imposes His Kingdom in place of every human government. Again it pictures the resurrection of what is called in the Bible the “dead in Messiah” (1 Thessalonians 4:16) and the change to a glorified spirit life—becoming spirit beings in the family of Yahweh. Yahshua the Messiah stated that He Himself would raise His followers at this future time (John 6:44). The Bible further shows us that Yahshua’s return will not be welcomed by the armies and the leaders of this world. In fact, the coming of Yahshua is accompanied by a time of war. The “kingdom of the world” will not willingly yield nor submit to Yahshua the Messiah. There is a reason the Lamb of Yahweh with a robe dipped in blood and wielding a sword will “strike the nations” (Revelation 19:13-15). The kingdom of the world is currently controlled by a powerful spirit being called Satan the devil. This evil being is the real culprit and power behind the scenes of all human folly, as he is “a thief that has come to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” (John 10:10) and “he is the god of this world” who has blinded the minds of people who don’t believe in the light of the gospel and glory of Messiah, who is the image of Yahweh…(2 Corinthians 4:4). Yes, the Bible clearly says Satan is the god of the world! And yes, there are scoffers out there that are inspired by Satan that tells people the Feasts of Yahweh are only for Jews, and worse, teaching and preaching to others that they’re all done away with, which is a big fat lie! Peoples, please beware of Bible scoffers in the last days! (2 Peter 3:3-7).

Before we conclude, it is vital for you to know the events that accompany the later harvest of humanity in Yahweh’s system of salvation are represented in the festivals of Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles and the Last Great Day, or Eighth Day. Introducing this is the Feast of Trumpets (Leviticus 23:23-25). A blowing of trumpets by a watchman in Old Testament times warned of an approaching army and imminent war (Ezekiel 33:2-4). The Feast of Trumpets looks ahead to Yahweh’s intervention in human affairs, without which we would otherwise annihilate ourselves (Matthew 24:21-22). The fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets will include a number of major events: the Day of Yahweh, when angels will blow trumpets followed by cataclysmic upheaval (Revelation 8-9); the crowning of Yahshua the Messiah as King of Kings and His return to save mankind from annihilation (Revelation 11:15; Matthew 24:22); the resurrection at the last trumpet of the righteous who have lived and died before this time, immediately followed by the change of the living Saints to precious immortality (1 Corinthians 15:50-52; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17); and the pouring out of the seven last plagues, which will include the destruction of murderous leaders and their military powers (Revelation 15-16). Yes, the Savior of mankind, Yahshua, will return to earth and wage war on “lawless” people to save humanity from itself. He’ll “destroy those who destroy the earth” (Revelation 11:18). All wicked peoples, including the Ten Commandments breakers couldn’t escape and they wouldn’t be spared of this soon-coming judgement of Almighty Yahweh! Why? Because the Saints, or true Christians “keep the commandments of Yahweh and the faith of Yahshua” (Revelation 14:12).

In closing, Trumpets were used in the Bible for several purposes. They were used to call the people of Yahweh to assembly (Numbers 10:1-10). They were also used to announce the beginning of this Holy Day (Leviticus 23:24). And trumpets were also used to announce the coronation of a king (1 Kings 1:39-40). Interestingly, it was around this time of year of the Feast of Trumpets that Yahshua the Messiah was born and came in the flesh to earth—not in the dead of winter as so many was taught and are led to believe! For although the Feast of Trumpets pictures the horrifying upsets and wars and plagues at the end of this human civilization, it also pictures the glorious divine intervention of the Creator Yahweh who will finally restore order and bring genuine peace and joy to a chastened humanity that is finally ready to “listen” to the Father in heaven Yahweh and follow His righteous ways. Yahshua the Messiah will return to earth to raise His followers from death and establish Almighty Yahweh’s perfect rule over the earth. Therefore, to all the peoples and nations of the earth, we proclaim to all of you that this is the wonderful, inspiring meaning of the Feast of Trumpets. The Messiah Yahshua taught us to pray to the Father, “Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). How very urgently the Saints, or true Christians in ancient and modern times need the answer to that prayer! May this true and faithful Kingdom teaching opens your eyes, your heart and your mind to the significance of this vital truth about the Feast of Trumpets holy day. May Yahweh bless you and keep you. Love and peace to all, especially to our brethren in faith. We earnestly ask and pray these things in the name of Yahshua the Messiah, Amen. Halleluyah, Shalom!
