Celebrating the biblical God-given Feast of Trumpets, while exploring the many different messages God gave us through this particular feast, we focus on the main message: THE LORD IS COMING!It’s all about the return of Yeshua. The day of the Lord!
In the New Testament, we find the explanation as to why this feast is so important and so powerfully anointed. Because every year when the people of Israel are blowing the shofar (trumpet) on Zion, they are proclaiming: “The Lord is coming!”
The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’
New Testament on the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets
When we read all about Chag HaTru’ot (Feast of Trumpets) in the Old Testament, we get a picture of a powerful feast with a strong message behind it, however, the fullness and the fulfillment of this feast can only be found in the New Testament.
Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.
Reading this scripture in the context of everything we learned about this feast in the Old Testament reveals a whole new dimension of its profound significance.
Yeshua HaMashiach — our Lord and Savior, coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory, while all the nations will see Him and recognize Him as who He truly is.
“And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet…
In Hebrew it says: HaShofar HaGadol (The Great Trumpet). But shofar isn’t just any trumpet, it is actually made out of a horn of a ram. So it isn’t a man-made trumpet, it is a God-made trumpet, from His own creation.
…and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
That is the glorious day of God’s visitation! When He will come to take His bride.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
1 Thessalonians 4:16
Paul teaches the same message, the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets.
We learned that when the people of Israel were in the wilderness, waiting for Moses to come down from the mountain, they heard a loud voice, a shout, a trumpet of God.
Father God Himself will blow His trumpet, and the whole world will hear and see what the Feast of Trumpets was teaching us all along — to prepare for the Lord’s coming.
The Feast of Trumpets was first given to the people of Israel in the desert when it was accompanied by loud voices from heaven, a big shofar blast, and a thick cloud (in Hebrew: anan kaved – heavy cloud) was descending while the trumpet sound was growing louder and louder. It was the first time the people of God were receiving commandments from Him, the Word of God accompanied by the sound of His trumpets.
God said the Feast of Trumpets is to be called: “Zich’ron Tru’ah” — remembrance of the sound of trumpet. It isn’t just about the trumpet, it is about it’s sound and what it represents.
The Feast of Trumpets is all about remembering what God has done for His people in the desert, when He delivered them from slavery, as well as remembering the Day of the Lord is near!
As we conclude Rosh Hashana, Feast of Trumpets, by blasting the shofar loudly, we are proclaiming “The Lord is coming!”
The Spirit and the bride say: “Come!”
I pray that during this season of Feast of Trumpets, God will give you divine visitations and appointed moments with the Lord, with your family and friends. Because these are special holy days for God’s miracles and the release of His joy.
Let’s rejoice in the Lord, let’s wait and expect His miracles and proclaim together the Day of the Lord!
