Feast of Trumpets

Shalom: It is a wonderful week for there is a double blessing in this week, the Holyday Sabbath, Feast of Trumpets and of the weekly Sabbath.

The weekly Sabbath is a great reminder that we created by an awesome God and are in His hand and therefore always under His Loving Authority.

The Feast of Trumpets to me is a reminder to be alert for the day or hour we don’t know when Christ, Yeshua/Jesus will return. For this Feast is the only Feast day that is on a new moon and not knowing the day or the hour, Israel would set watchmen to keep an eye out for the sighting of the sliver of the moon. When spotted the people would hear a Trumpet sound know that the feast has started.

Look how Yeshua/Jesus uses this phrase in the parable of the ten virgins, Matthew 25:13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.  See how it is tied the Feast of Trumpets, how they had to be alert watching for the appearance and the trumpet sound.

Paul also teach us about the resurrection at the return of Yeshua that ties also to the Trumpets sounds. 1 Cor 15:51-53 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.

This day is full of rejoicing in hope for through faith we wait with anticipation of the Return of Our Messiah, for we will see him as he really is, for we will be like him fully. What a glorious day, to be finally with Him forever and ever.

What a WONDERFUL and GREAT a PROMISE we have to look forward as believers. Therefore let us never forget by continuing to always be alert and be prepared and always remember that we have a Loving Father in Heaven and teacher of ways that are full of life. Shalom
