The Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh Hashanah is a celebration of creation, it marks the “head of the year”. On the Feast of Trumpets, 100 ritual trumpet blasts signify the issuance of revelation and a call for Israel to gather for God’s word of redemption. The feast also symbolizes the Lord’s final harvest of souls. More people need to choose Jesus, to believe, receive, and praise God for His salvation plan so I support ministries that promote the Gospel as God values those who wins souls. According to the Mazzaroth Jewish calendar October 7-9 is the correct date for the Feast of Trumpets. Whatever date, even as my soul grieves by what I see in the world, I trust God will preserve my soul. Jesus is in control and so I rest in Him. To not be anxious, and to keep fear and worry rooted out, I choose to guard my heart by turning off the news. Philippians 4:6-8 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” AMEN How brilliant that our Father has kept us from knowing exactly when He will dispatch Jesus to snatch up His church! Surprise is always good, but His way of not telling us the day or hour keeps us humble and obedient as we wait on our Lord! We are certain that all of His promises will be fulfilled, and therefore we are wise to examine our hearts and keep lamps full of oil as we continue to use the gifts He gave us. Messianic Bible Scholars believe that the Feast of Trumpets signifies the Coming of Christ for His church.
The “harpazo” or rapture of the church is pictured in this feast and some believe it may actually take place at this time, although the Bible says no man knows the day or hour and we can’t set a date for that event. The atmosphere in Israel this week is tinged with lively expectancy, despite the drama of political posturing and military threats of Iran. Around the country, preparations are underway for Yom Teruah (Day or Feast of Trumpets) on September 6, 2021.
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) follows ten days later; and in October the Jews celebrate Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). Collectively, these three appointed times are known as the Levitical fall feasts. They are God’s appointed times to meet in holy love with His people in special way. To be sure, these feasts can be observed as preparatory foreshadowings of Messiah’s return. The Feast of Trumpets could well be fulfilled at the “catching up” or rapture of the Church and onset of God’s judgment of Israel and the nations. (1 Cor. 15:51-52 + 1 Thess. 4:16-17 + Mat. 25:31-46). We are called to keep watch with joyful expectancy. The world will mock us, and like Noah we are ridiculed, but in the twinkling of an eye, we will be raptured, and those left behind will then consider what we have warned about the great tribulation. Jesus will meet all those servants in the clouds who have been using their talents for His glory. We need to be faithful with what talent He gave us. “Well done good and faithful servant” Listen to Pastor Jimmy Evans detail the Feast of Trumpets, and as I am a subscriber, you can read more of Jimmy’s commentary in the comment section about this Jewish holiday.
“We do not know the day or the hour”, however, it is prudent to get ready for the Rapture by examining your heart and confessing your sins. The Feast of Trumpets lasts for two days, and it begins at sundown on Sept 6, 2021 to Sundown on Sept 8, 2021 in Israel. It could be this year, or next that we get snatched up in a twinkling of an eye!
