The trumpets will announce the second coming of Jesus:
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. (1.Thess 4,16-17) see also 1. Corinthians 15,51-52
THE DAYS OF TESHUVAH (Return or Repentance):
On Elul 1(August or September - 6 months after Passover, which is the first
month of Abib). This starts 30 days before the Feast of Trumpets. Feast
of Trumpets is Tshri 1 (7th Month - September or October - in the 7th month.
Remember Passover is in Abib, or Nissan, the first month) The days of Teshuvah,
or days of Repentance, ends Tshri 10 - on Yom Kippur - Day of Atonement, (total
of 40 days). The 40 days of Teshuvah, is a time of returning and repenting
before The LORD. During those 40 days, and especially the last 10, and most
particularly the LAST day of Yom Kippur, we prepare our heart by seeking
forgiveness, through repentance. The last 10 days - the 10 days starting wth the
Feast of Trumpets and ending with the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, are known
as the Days of Awe.
4. DAY OR FEAST OF TRUMPETS (Rosh HaShanah or Yom
Teruach) Num 29:1; Lev 23:23-25: On Tishri 1. Rosh HaShanah means "head of
the year." According to Jewish tradition, on this day the gates of heaven are
opened, (Rev 3:7-11). Tradition has it as the anniversary of the creation of the
world and the beginning of the Kingdom of HaShem (God), Adam and Eve were
created, the flood waters dried up, Enoch was taken by the LORD; Sarah, Rachel,
and Samuel were conceived, Joseph was freed from prison by Pharaoh, forced labor
of Hebrews in Egypt ended, Job contracted leprosy, the start of sacrifices on
the altar built by Ezra. According to Jewish tradition all of those events
happened on Tishri 1. The Feast of Trumpets is celebrated by blowing trumpets
(shofar) 100 times to announce the setting up of The LORD's eternal court.
The sounding of the shofar reminds us of the binding
of Isaac by his father Abraham, and we too must be willing to make such
sacrifices. On this day we reaffirm our acceptance of The LORD as our King, and
He judges all of His human creatures on this day and decides on their fate in
the coming year. It is the first month of the new civil year. These 10 days are
called the Days of Awe or High Holy Days. This was also the time to bring all of
your tithe (10th) for the poor, widows, orphans, and the Levite priest who have
no inheritance. Over these 10 days the wheat will be brought in on the threshing
floor and separated from the chaff. This 2-day feast comes AT A DAY AND HOUR NO
MAN KNOWS and you are not required to go up to the temple on this day. a.
This is the day set up to remember the blowing of trumpets when the great sign
appeared in the heavens of the announcement of Yeshua’s birth (Lion of Judah),
which the Chaldean astronomers had been watching, and waiting for, for over four
hundred years, (Rev.12:1-2). b. Will be the announcement of Yeshua’s
second coming and the Resurrection of the Saints, (IThess 4:16,17). c.
Will be the end of Jacob’s trouble, (Jer 30:7). d. Will be the end of
first Gog Magog War at the start of the millennial reign of King Yeshua.
