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 Appointed Times, (Moa’ed #4150) and for Days,(yom #3117) and Years,(shanah #8141).” Genesis 1:14
The 1st Day of the 7th Biblical 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 or Tumult made by the Blowing a Trumpet, Ram’s Horn, or Shofar.
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 that leaves room for speculations so beware of those who ignore YHVH’s instructions not to add or take away from what He commands, Deuteronomy 4:2.
For example, Rosh Hashana, (Head of the Year) was added to Yom Teruah. Jesus also warned us not to teach our opinions/doctrines as commands of God: Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7; Isaiah 29:13; Deuteronomy 12:32; Proverbs 30:6…
How To Observe and Keep the Day of Trumpets
On the Seventh New Moon, חֹדֶשׁ, Chodesh, a name that comes from the verb to Renew, (חָדַשׁ Chadash), each new month the dark moon, יָרֵחַ Yarach, is renewed by an observable sliver of light, called the waxing crescent, beginning on it’s right to bottom side.
On this day the Assembly, (Miqra) of those who are Set-apart, (קָדוֹשׁ Qadosh) will stop all their servile/bondage work and make a loud Tumult, (Teruah).
YHVH’s Appointed Times are to be kept like dress rehearsals by His Set-apart ones, those who knows His Commandments are Spirit and Truth, John 4:24.
“in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:52
“And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other,” Matthew 24:31
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will be the first to rise.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16
“And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and they were given seven trumpets,” Revelation 8:2
Jesus did not come to abolish, but to fulfill the Torah, Prophets and Writings. His words match up to YHVH’s plumb-line of Truth, Matthew 5:18
Keep in mind that Yom Teruah is a Sign beginning the 10 day count to Yom Kippur, Day of Atonement.
