Memorial of Blowing of Trumpets 2011

Memorial of the Blowing of Trumpets

Today is a High & Holy Day to the God of Israel; it is the Memorial of the Blowing of the Trumpets. It is a very important day for followers of the Messiah, the house of Jacob, and the children of Israel.
However, many Christians do not know what this day is about; and as a supplement source, we hope to help them/you out with that. Jewish people keep this memorial under the name of Rosh Hashanah.
And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation: You shall do no manner of work; it is a day of blowing the horn unto you, Numbers 29:1.
In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns, a holy convocation, Leviticus 23:24.
To the Jewish people it is a day of blowing a horn as told by them in the Torah; but why is this done?
In Leviticus chapter 23, all of the Lord’s commanded Feast, Holy Days, and memorials are outlined.  Let’s look into this, we’ll begin in Leviticus chapter 23.

Leviticus 23

Verse 1,  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
The Lord is speaking to Moses; God always gave Moses the instructions and not Moses himself giving the instructions. Important to note.  God told Moses to command the children of Israel concerning the feast of the Lord, which they shall keep as holy gatherings; even these are the Lord’s feast, or festivals.
These are God’s celebrations, and everyone is invited, yet they are not attending His celebrations. They want not of His HolyDays, people have their own HoliDays.
But these are the feasts of the God of Israel, even these are His feast.  If the feast belongs to the God that we serve; how is it that many Christians do not attend to these High Days?
The world is all about endorsements, if Kim, Khloe, Kylie, or Kendall endorsed the Lord’s Sabbaths, maybe the attendence would improve.
But we have an even stronger endorsement for what Moses wrote. Jesus gives Moses a very fine endorsement that Christians, and all the world should keep in mind; this endorsement is found in John chapter 5; and we’ll read at verse 45:
45, Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46, For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.
47, But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
Jesus tells the people that they should not fear that He will accuse them to the Father in Heaven; the only accuser will be Moses.  Really. He was speaking to the Pharisees who put all their trust in Moses, and none in Jesus.  Then Jesus gives His endorsement of Moses.
If you believed Moses, you would have believed in me’, speaking of Himself; because Moses wrote all about Jesus.  ‘But, if you do not believe Moses’ writing, how in the world can you believe my words’, Jesus says, speaking of Himself.
Jesus clearly let’s us know, in order to believe Him, we must believe Moses.  This may be concerning news for those who do not like Moses, or do not pay attention to any of His teachings; but it is also edifying and uplifting to know and learn.
The Lord is showing you through this article that Moses is not that bad of a guy.
At any rate, we just got the strongest endorsement in the world for Moses, it wasn’t Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Barack Obama, TD Jakes, or one of the Kardashians, but it was Jesus the Messiah!
Now we can come back to Leviticus 23 and verse 23 concerning the 7th month memorial of blowing trumpets.
23, And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
25, Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
In the 7th month, on the first day of the month, we have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, and should partake in a holy gathering. Why?  Why do we have to remind ourselves of the blowing of trumpets?

Well, for it to be one of the Lord’s high and holy days, it must be important and carry a great significance.  Let’s look in the pass first – Exodus 19 v10-20, when the Lord had Moses prepare the people to meet Him on Mount Sinai the Lord came down on the mountain and it was burning with smoke and lightning’s, verse 16
16, And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightning’s, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled.
Can imagine, you hear trumpets but don’t know where it’s coming from and it’s so loud that you just want to cry.
19, And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.
These trumpets announced the coming of the King, the coming of the Lord. When ever you see these trumpets in the bible they usually represent entrance of the Lord, or a warning for the people.
In Exodus chapter 20, the people had, had enough:
18, And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.
Let’s see the foreshadowing of the trumpets in action.  In Joshua chapter 6, we get a small example of what Jesus the Christ will do on a worldwide level in the coming future.
4, And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
Seven priests, had seven trumpets, circle the city seven times, and the priest shall blow the trumpets.  This is when Israel was taking down Jericho; and the Lord was going before them.
Those priests blew the trumpets before the Lord.  This is certainly different than what we see today; before Israel went to war the priest went first, and then the soldiers.
The Lord went first and those trumpets announced the coming of the Lord.  This is why kings and presidents do this today; they are impersonating an old custom from the Lord God of Heaven. See verse 20 of Joshua chapter 6:
20, So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
The people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets and the wall fell down flat; and the people went and took the city.  This is what the Lord is going to do on the world wide level at His second coming.  This is described in detail in Revelation 8:
2, And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
John saw 7 angels bearing 7 trumpets; this sounds like Joshua chapter 6, except the angels replaced the priest.
Verse 5, And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
6, And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
Verse 5, we see thundering, lightning’s, and earthquakes – this happened before the Lord came down on the Mt Sinai.  And the 7 angels that had the 7 trumpets prepared to sound.
Every time they sounded the trumpet; something drastic happened to the earth.  This can be read in entirety, but the 7th trumpet sound is the big deal; because at the 7th trumpet here comes the Lord Jesus.
Let’s view it from Paul’s point of view.
1st Corinthians 15
Verse 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.
At the last trump, the Lord raises the dead and changes the living that are righteous, and meets them in the air, and then they all come down to the earth.
Isaiah chapter 27, verse 13, supports the blast of the last trumpet that welcomes the return of the Lord.
The trumpet announces the coming of the Lord, the coming of the King, the King is King Jesus and when He will take down this earth to conquer and colonize it, and prepare the earth for His day of Rest.
This is why this day is vitally important for the inhabitants of the earth, this is why we keep and remember the Memorial of the Blowing of Trumpets.
It is a memorial to remind us of what the Lord will do upon His return to this earth.
My hope is that you and your family consider adopting this in your church service, your belief, and practice, because it is part of the will of God.  It is good to serve the Lord fully and Holy; praise the Lord in Jesus name.
And happy Holy Day to you, the memorial of the blowing of trumpets, 2016.
