Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashanah/Day of Trumpets
Yom Teruah (The Feast of Trumpets) celebrates the return of Jesus Christ to earth to establish the Kingdom of God! In the book of Revelation we read about events that describe angels sounding a series of seven trumpet blasts. The seventh angel’s sounding of the last trumpet signifies that “the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ” (Revelation 11:15).
Leviticus 23 calls the blowing of trumpets a memorial and many believe it is a memorial of God’s grace to Abraham (Genesis 22). Yom Teruah is signaled in by the blowing of the Shofar (Leviticus 23:24, 1Chronicles 15:24 and Psalms 81:3). Yom Teruah begins the 10 Days of Awe bringing us into Yom Kippur.
The Feast of Trumpets also marks the future fulfillment of the many Old Testament prophecies that speak of a Messiah coming as a king who will rule with power and authority. The concept of a conquering Messiah was on the minds of the apostles immediately after Jesus’ resurrection. When He appeared to them in those early days, they asked questions such as: “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6).
