Day of Trumpets
The First Sacred Day of Fall Existed From Creation
“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for Signs, (Oth #226) and for Seasons, (moed #4150) and for Days, (yom #3117) and Years, (shanah #8141)..” Genesis 1:14
The 1st Day of the 7th Lunar Month Is Yom Teruah!
“Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a Holy/Set Apart, (Qodesh #6944) Assembly, (Miqra #4744); you shall do no servile/bondage work, (abodah #5656). It is a day for you to make a Loud Noise/Tumult, (Teruah #8643).” Numbers 29:1; Numbers 10:10
The Hebrew word Teruah is translated several different ways: a Loud Noise, a Joyful Noise, Shout, Blast, Blowing a Trumpet, Ram’s Horn, or Shofar, but my personal favorite is Tumult which embodies them all.

Teruah is described in Psalm 81, https://biblehub.com/isr/psalms/81.htm. The following verses also describe Teruah:
“Sing to Him a New, (Chadash #2319) song; Play skillfully with a Joyful Shout/Noise, (Teruah).” Psalm 33:3
“O clap your hands, All peoples;
Shout, (Teruah) to God with the voice of joy.” Psalm 47:1
“Shout, (Teruah) joyfully to God, All the earth” Psalm 66:1
“Shout, (Teruah) for joy, (or make a joyful Noise), to YHVH, All the earth.” Psalm 100:1
Yom Teruah in a Nutshell
“Again YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons (children) of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder/memorial, (zikkaron #2146) by blowing horns, (Teruah) a Holy/Set apart, (Qodesh #6944) Assembly, (Miqra #4744). 25 ‘You shall not do any servile, (adobah #5656) work, but you shall present an offering by fire to YHVH.” Leviticus 23:24-25
Unlike the other Six Sacred Festivals, there is no reason given for making a Tumult. This is an obedience we can only speculate about but be careful not to add or take away from YHVH’s instructions.
Rosh Hashana, (Head of the Year) was added by man but YHVH taught us in advance not to add or take away form His Word. His Salvation, Yeshua/Jesus also warned us not to teach our opinions as commands of God: Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7; Isaiah 29:13; Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 12:32; Proverbs 30:6…
On the Seventh reNEWed Moon, (Chadash #2319), an Assembly, (Miqra) of those who Set themselves apart, (Qodesh) will continue to cease/rest from all servile/bondage work and make a loud Tumult, (Teruah).
Why? because we know YHVH’s Commandments are Spirit and Truth, John 4:24.
Yeshua/Jesus did not come to abolish but to fulfill the Torah, Prophets and Writings matching Torah. We need to know and keep watch for His appointments until all is accomplished, Matthew 5:18
*Keep in mind that Yom Teruah is a Sign beginning the 10 day count to Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement.
