The first feast of Yah’s fall Holy Days is the Feast of Trumpets. This year it begins at even on 9/12/2015. The Feast of Trumpets begins on the first day of the Hebrew seventh month, making this feast both an annual holy day as well as a monthly one. This is because the first day of the Hebrew month is also a New Moon. The Feast of Trumpets is a Sabbath and represents a calling of the assemblies, particularly the prophetic calling of the Hebrews before Yah’s Day of wrath.
Zephaniah 1:14-16″ “14 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. 15 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, 16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.”
Joel 2: “1Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; 2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.”
FEAST OF TRUMPETS
Numbers 29: 1-6
In the Old Testament, trumpets were used to assemble the people together [as in a holy convocation] and trumpets were used to also assemble the people to prepare for war. The Feast of Trumpets is a solemn time of self-evaluation. Written within the old Negro/Hebrew spirituals is the spiritual understanding that the trumpets are heavenly ‘voices’ who will gather the elect by the call of your name. [“Where will you be when the trumpet sounds? Hush, Somebody’s Calling My Name”. Or, as sung in Steal Away….”He calls me by the thunder, the trumpet sounds within my soul”]. In Numbers 29:1-11, God instructed the Hebrews to observe a holy convocation [day of worship and cessation from work] on the first day of the seventh month by blowing the trumpet and making offerings by fire [A FEAST] to the Lord.
And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more. Heb 12:19
- I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Rev 1:10
- 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, Rev 4:1
- And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound! Rev 8:13
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. Rev 11:15
