Then the Lord (Yahwe) spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’”
God spoke to Moses and the nation of Israel, giving them the command to celebrate this feast, as well as clear instructions on how they are to celebrate it.
A memorial of blowing trumpets — a holy convocation
The Lord is saying there is no work to be done on this day, and the only thing that is to be done and heard in the land is the blowing of trumpets.
Interestingly enough, for Day of Atonement, or for Feast of Tabernacles, God gives a very specific explanation on why the trumpets are to be blown and what they actually signify, as opposed to the Feast of Trumpets which is almost completely covered by a veil of mystery, and it is up to us to dig deeper and discover God’s profound significance of this memorial, why and how we are to celebrate it.
The great privilege of living in New Testament times, especially end times, is that we have access to all the answers if we seek them. The book of Revelations gives us a powerful insight into the true importance and meaning of the Trumpet blow. We read time and time again about angels blowing the trumpets, and even God Himself is said to blow the trumpet when the time comes.
There are powerful and deep messages connected to the sound of blowing trumpets and what that means.
In the next video, I will share with you all about these prophetic messages, as well as the amazing vision God gave me in a dream that changed my life.
