Tonight at local sunset begins
the Feast of Trumpets. AKA, Yom Teruah, Rosh Hashanah, etc. This feast launches
the 21 day cycle of the Fall feasts. Think about this in relation to Yeshua's
2nd coming: It is the only feast that takes place on the first day of the month.As such
no one knows the exact day it will arrive.
ancient times, the new month began with the announcement of the sighting of the
new moon. So it wasn't known which of two or possibly three days that it would
happen. Since it is a high Sabbath, preparations must be made ahead of time.Food is prepared and the table is made ready
for family and invited guests. But if the new moon is not sighted, then the
Feast is put off for one more day.
Feast, the shofar (Ram's horn) is blown 100 times at the announcement of the
start of the Feast. The last blast of the shofar was known as the "last
trump" and no one knew the exact day or hour that the shofar, and therefore
the "last trump" would be blown.In light of this custom in place at the time
of Yeshua, and practiced for 1500 years since the time of Moses, read again
this scripture: 1Co 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed." Now this and other such scriptures make sense!
We do not
know the day or hour of His return, but we do know the season. He has given us
His Feasts, His moedim to discern the seasons. Yeshua fulfilled the Spring
Feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits and the Feast of Weeks in
His first coming to the day and the hour. His second coming is foretold is the
fall feasts of Trumpets, the Day of Atonements, and Tabernacles. He will
fulfill these as well to the day and the hour!
