Yom Teruah - The Feast of Shouting and Trumpets

Tonight we begin the Feast of Shouting and Trumpets, Yom Teruah!

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’”
Leviticus 23:23-25

And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work. For you it is a day of blowing the trumpets.
Numbers 29:1

The account in numbers goes on to detail the sacrifice for this Holy Day.  I am soooooo grateful to Yahshua that the sacrifice has been paid in full.  This enables us to approach the throne of YHWH with courage, having a PERFECT sacrifice offering. "To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation." Hebrews 9:28b

As we learn more about the appointed times YHWH put in His word, we learn how each is a prophetic vision and promise of Yahshua Ha'Mashiach, Jesus the Messiah.  Just as the spring feasts were prophetic of His first coming, as a gentle, peaceful sacrificial lamb, the fall feasts prophesy His second coming as the Lion of Judah, coming King of Kings to judge the Living and the Dead.

Yom Teruah specifically prophesies of the Coming of the King with His armies, the blast of trumpets, and shouting.  It will be a great and awesome day!

Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
Revelation 6:14-17

"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS
AND
LORD OF LORDS."
Revelation 19:11-21

Final Fantasy Artwork, looks like Yahshua to me lol

This feast also represents the opening of the Book of Life.  For the next ten days we are all called up to REPENT!!!
RETURN TO YHWH!!
TURN AWAY FROM SIN!!
TESHUVA!!

Because Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement represents the CLOSING of the Book of Life.

 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Adonai Yahshua!
The grace of our Adonai Yahshua Ha'Mashiach be with you all. Amen.
Revelation 22:12-21

PSALM 81:1-4 (GNV) 1) Sing joyfully unto Elohim our strength: sing loud unto the Elohim of Jacob. 2) Take the song and bring forth the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the viol. 3) Blow the trumpet in the new moon, even in the time appointed at our feast day. 4) For this is a statute for Israel, and a Law of the Elohim of Jacob.

  2. Nehemiah 8 (NKJV)
    8 Now all the people gathered together as one man in the open square that was in front of the Water Gate; and they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded Israel. 2 So Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly of men and women and all who could hear with understanding on the first day of the seventh month. 3 Then he read from it in the open square that was in front of the Water Gate from morning until midday, before the men and women and those who could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive to the Book of the Law.

    4 So Ezra the scribe stood on a platform of wood which they had made for the purpose; and beside him, at his right hand, stood Mattithiah, Shema, Anaiah, Urijah, Hilkiah, and Maaseiah; and at his left hand Pedaiah, Mishael, Malchijah, Hashum, Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam. 5 And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was standing above all the people; and when he opened it, all the people stood up. 6 And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God.

    Then all the people answered, “Amen, Amen!” while lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground.

    7 Also Jeshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, helped the people to understand the Law; and the people stood in their place. 8 So they read distinctly from the book, in the Law of God; and they gave the sense, and helped them to understand the reading.

    9 And Nehemiah, who was the governor,[a] Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who taught the people said to all the people, “This day is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn nor weep.” For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the Law.

    10 Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

    11 So the Levites quieted all the people, saying, “Be still, for the day is holy; do not be grieved.” 12 And all the people went their way to eat and drink, to send portions and rejoice greatly, because they understood the words that were declared to them.
