The Feast of Trumpets

The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. (Leviticus 23:23-25)

I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:50-52)

According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord,will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18)

We have seen that prophetic analysis can narrow down the Rapture to the year 2017:

* The creation of Adam around 3,983 BC. plus 6,000 years = 2018 (there is no “year zero” from B.C. to A.D.) The next 1,000 years is the Millennium, the Day of the Lord.

* 2017 is the Grand Jubilee: 2017 is 50 years (a full jubilee cycle) from 1967 (conquest of Jerusalem), 100 years (two complete jubilee cycles) from 1917 (Balfour declaration), and 120 years (see Genesis 6:3) from 1897 (First Zionist Congress, the first Jewish government since 70 AD).

* 70 years (the last generation) from 1947 (decree to reestablish Israel).

* Ben Samuel’s prophecy that 2017 is the year of Messiah.

* The prophecy in the Psalms, with Psalm 117 = 2017. Psalm 117 is the call to universal praise, is in the middle of the Bible, and is also the shortest book in the Bible.

* The Super-Signs: 1917 – A National Home for the Jewish People, Jerusalem freed from the Ottoman Empire, 1967 – The Jews return to Jerusalem, 2017 – Levitical Sacrifices and the rebuilding of a Third Temple begins.

* The Hallel prophetic countdown (Psalms 113 – 118) showing the Rapture in 2017, and the 7 year Tribulation beginning in 2018.

* The Great American Eclipses starting in 2017 and ending in 2024, corresponding to the 7 Tribulation years.

* Current events, including the Trump Arab-Israel “ultimate deal” peace plan, the rise of the Beast (Erdogan of Turkey), the rise of the False Prophet (Pope Francis), the revival of the Roman Empire (the Federal Union of European States), the Sanhedrin call for the Third Temple, and many more signs.

Now, we can use prophetic analysis to try to narrow down the Rapture to the appropriate Jewish feast.

And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. (Genesis 1:14-16)

sun-moon

Our Sun-Moon system is very special. The sun’s diameter is about 400 times larger than that of the moon – but the sun is also about 400 times farther from Earth. The two therefore look the same size in the sky – a unique situation among our solar system’s eight planets and 166 known moons. Science calls it a remarkable coincidence, but as Christians, we know that the precision of the Lord is 100% design, from an omnipotent Being.

The Lord designed the 7 major Jewish feasts around a lunisolar calendar. A lunisolar calendar is a calendar in many cultures whose date indicates both the moon phase and the time of the solar year.

The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘These are my appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of the Lord, which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies. (Leviticus 23:1-2)

Feasts

Beginning in the spring, the seven Jewish feasts are Passover (Pesach), the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Firstfruits, the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh HaShanah), the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot).

The Jewish feasts are closely related to Israel’s spring and fall harvests and agricultural seasons. They were to remind the Israelites each year of God’s ongoing protection and provision. But, even more importantly, they foreshadowed the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Not only did they play significant roles in Christ’s earthly ministry but they also symbolize the complete redemptive story of Christ, beginning with His death on the cross as the Passover Lamb and ending with His second coming after which He will “tabernacle” or dwell with His people forever.

feasts-menorah

While the four spring feasts look back at what Christ fulfilled at His first coming, the three fall feasts point us toward the glory of His Rapture and the second coming. The spring feasts are the source of our hope in Christ—His finished work of atonement for sins—and the fall feasts are the promise of what is to come—eternity with Christ. Understanding the significance of these God-appointed Jewish festivals helps us to better see and understand the complete picture and plan of redemption found in Scripture.

The next unfulfilled feast is the Feast of Trumpets.

Feast-Of-Trumpets

On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the trumpets. (Numbers 29:1)

Jewish names and themes for this feast include:

Rosh HaShanah – ‘Head of the year’ / Tishrei 1 is the first day of the Jewish new year in their civil calendar. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve.

Yom Teruah – ‘Day of Awakening Blast’ / Jewish belief is that the resurrection of the dead will occur on the feast of Trumpets.

The Last Trump – On this day, there are 100 trumpet blasts. The final, long, and most significant trumpet blast is called ‘the last trump’.

Yom Zikaron – ‘Day of Remembrance’ / A day on which the chosen people remember God, and God remembers them.

Yom Hadin – ‘Day of Judgment’ / God opens the books on that day and judges the righteous and the wicked according to what they had done.

Yom Hamelech – the Day of the Coronation of the King.

The time of Jacob’s trouble – There shall be great tribulation in Israel such as never was since there was a nation.

Yom Hakeseh – The Hidden Day / It was ‘hidden’ because they didn’t know the exact day it would begin due to the fact that it is the only feast that starts on a new moon. Thus it was a two day feast because they didn’t want to celebrate it on the wrong day. Concerning Rosh HaShanah, the Jews would typically say “Of that day and hour no one knows.”

The Opening of the Gates of Heaven / The Gate of Heaven is opened on Rosh HaShanah so the righteous nation may enter.

The Wedding of Messiah / The blowing of the heavenly trumpet is a call for the entire, true, bride of God to assemble together.

Now, let’s review some scripture that corresponds to these names of the Feast of Trumpets:

Rosh HaShanah – ‘Head of the year’

Rosh-HaShanah-2017

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength,
And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
For our shield belongs to the Lord,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel. (Psalm 89:15-18)

Yom Teruah – ‘Day of Awakening Blast’

shofar-sounds

Therefore it is said: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you. (Ephesians 5:14)

Your dead will live; their bodies will rise.
Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust!
For you will be covered with the morning dew,
and the earth will bring out the departed spirits. (Isaiah 26:19)

The Last Trump

I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:50-52)

Yom Zikaron – ‘Day of Remembrance’

zikaron

Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.

“They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.” (Malachi 3:16-17)

Yom Hadin – ‘Day of Judgment’

prepare_judgement1

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up from the abyss and go to destruction. Those who live on the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast that was, and is not, and will be present again. (Revelation 17:8)

Yom Hamelech – the Day of the Coronation of the King

Coronation of the King

Then I saw in the right hand of the One seated on the throne a scroll with writing on the inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. I also saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or even to look in it. And I cried and cried because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or even to look in it.

Then one of the elders said to me, “Stop crying. Look! The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has been victorious so that He may open the scroll and its seven seals.” Then I saw One like a slaughtered lamb standing between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders. He had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent into all the earth. He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of the One seated on the throne.

When He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the 24 elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and gold bowls filled with incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song:

You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because You were slaughtered,
and You redeemed people
for God by Your blood
from every tribe and language
and people and nation.
You made them a kingdom
and priests to our God,
and they will reign on the earth.

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels around the throne, and also of the living creatures and of the elders. Their number was countless thousands, plus thousands of thousands. They said with a loud voice:

The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy

to receive power and riches
and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and blessing!

I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth, on the sea, and everything in them say:

Blessing and honor and glory and dominion
to the One seated on the throne,
and to the Lamb, forever and ever!

The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

(Revelation 5)

The time of Jacob’s trouble

The time of Jacob's trouble

While He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached Him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?”

Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains. (Matthew 24:3-8)

Yom Hakeseh – The Hidden Day

new-moon

For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock. (Psalm 27:5)

The Opening of the Gates of Heaven

an open door

Open the gates of righteousness for me;
I will enter through them
and give thanks to the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord;
the righteous will enter through it. (Psalm 118:19-20)

After this I looked, and there in heaven was an open door. The first voice that I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

Immediately I was in the Spirit, and a throne was set there in heaven. One was seated on the throne, and the One seated looked like jasper and carnelian stone. A rainbow that looked like an emerald surrounded the throne. (Revelation 4:1-3)

The Wedding of Messiah

According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord,will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18)

Scripture shows that the Rapture is intimately tied to the Feast of Trumpets. The next Rosh Hashanah begins on the sunset of Wednesday, September 20, 2017, and ends the nightfall of Friday, September 22, 2017. Are we approaching the time when the heavenly trumpet will be heard? Are you ready?

  1. Great info good work, many thanks. Maybe you could put a question mark after Erdogans name there. He’s a top candidate for sure, but along with Putin, Macron, pope Francis or even a resurrected Nimrod in my humble opinion.

  2. I agree with this prophetic insight and it helped me to fully understand the Feast of Trumpet. And I also would like to put a question mark after Erdogans of Turkey and his designation as the False Prophet spoken of in Revelations. I tend to think this unique character will actually be from Israel and therefore a Jewish nobleman among the political landscape. The Antichrist will be a Gentile for sure and probably of Arab descent, perhaps Turkey but I think Syria would be the key nation. But this article is excellent in laying out Trumpets associated with the Rapture.
