Feast of Trumpets – 2018
Feast of Trumpets
(Zikron Teruah, memorial of blowing)
(Day of Blowing)
From Batya Wootten’s book, Israel’s Feasts and their Fullness
All Scripture taken from the Son Of Man Bible, SOMB.bblx e-Sword module. Original work at unfoldingword.org.
John 1:14-18, “And the Word became flesh and lived among us. We have seen his glory, glory as of the one and only born of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John testified about him and cried out, saying, “This was the one of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is more than me, for he was before me.’” 16 For from his fullness we have all received grace after grace. 17 For the Torah was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Yeshua Messiah. 18 No one has seen Yehovah at any time. The only begotten Son, who is at the side of the Father, he has made him known.”
Yehovah told Moses on the mountain in Exodus 33:20, “… “You may not see my face, for no one can see me and live.””
Paul said it this way in 1 Corinthians 13:12, “For now we see indirectly in a mirror, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I have been fully known.”
The Feast of Trumpets is going to introduce an age where we will see Yeshua, our Messiah, face to face and live to tell about it. Listen to what Yeshua says about it in John 14, “Do not let your heart be troubled. You believe in Yehovah, believe also in me. 2 In the house of my Father are many rooms. If it were not so, I would have told you, for I am going to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come once more and receive you to myself, so that where I am you will also be. 4 You know the way to where I am going.” 5 Thomas said to Yeshua, “Lord, we do not know where you are going, how can we know the way?” 6 Yeshua said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you know him and have seen him.” 8 Philip said to Yeshua, “Lord, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.” 9 Yeshua said to him, “I have been with you for so long and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak from my own authority, but the Father living in me is doing his work. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father is in me, or else believe because of the works themselves. 12 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will do the works that I do, and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, so that the Father will be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. 15 If you love me, you will keep my commandments. (Exo. 20:6) 16 And I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor so that he will be with you forever, 17 the Ruach of truth. The world cannot receive him, because it does not see him or know him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you alone; I will come back to you. 19 Yet a short amount of time and the world will no longer see me, but you see me. Because I live, you will also live. 20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and that you are in me, and that I am in you. 21 He who has my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me, and he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and I will show myself to him.” 22 Judas, not Iscariot, said to Yeshua, “Lord, why is it that you will show yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Yeshua answered and said to him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and we will make our home with him. 24 He who does not love me does not keep my words. The word that you hear is not from me but from the Father who sent me. 25 I have said these things to you, while I am staying with you. 26 However, the Counselor, Ruach ha’Kodesh, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything and he will remind you of everything that I said to you. 27 I leave you peace; I give you my peace. I do not give it as the world gives. Do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid. 28 You heard that I said to you, ‘I am going away, and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad, because I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I am. 29 Now I have told you before it happens so that, when it happens, you will believe. 30 I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me, 31 but in order that the world will know that I love the Father, I do just as the Father commanded me. Let us get up and go from here.”
The Feast of Trumpets is described in a few scriptures, one of the main ones is Numbers 10:1-10, “Yehovah spoke to Moses. He said, 2 “Make two silver trumpets. Hammer the silver to make them. You must use the trumpets to call the messianic congregation together and to call the messianic congregation to move their camps. 3 The priests must blow the trumpets to call all the messianic congregation together in front of you at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 4 If the priests blow only one trumpet, then the leaders, the heads of the clans of Israel, must gather to you. 5 When you blow a loud signal, the camps on the east side must begin their journey. 6 When you blow a loud signal the second time, the camps on the south side must begin their journey. They must blow a loud signal for their journeys. 7 When the messianic congregation gathers together, blow the trumpets, but not loudly. 8 The sons of Aaron, the priests, must blow the trumpets. This will always be a regulation for you throughout your people’s generations. 9 When you go to war in your land against an adversary who oppresses you, then you must sound an alarm with the trumpets. I, Yehovah your Almighty, will call you to mind and save you from your enemies. 10 Also, at the times of celebration, both your appointment calendar festivals and at the beginning of the lunar months, you must blow the trumpets in honor of your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices for your fellowship offerings. These will act as a reminder of you to me, your Almighty. I am Yehovah your Almighty.””
The word for trumpet here is H2689
By reduplication from H2690; a trumpet (from its sundered or quavering note):—trumpet (-er).
I’ve found it quite interesting that in Numbers 10, the word for blowing, teruah, is not used at all, even though that is the name of the feast according to the Jews. The word teruah is used in other passages related to this feast, as you will see.
In verses 3 through 8 and in verse 10 the word for blow is H8628
A primitive root; to clatter, that is, slap (the hands together), clang (an instrument); by analogy to drive (a nail or tent pin, a dart, etc.); by implication to become bondsman (by handclasping):—
In verse 9 the word for blow is H7321
A primitive root; to mar (especially by breaking); figuratively to split the ears (with sound), that is, shout (for alarm or joy):
If you want Yehovah to hear, you need to make an earsplitting sound with your trumpets.
How we honor our Heavenly Father on this day according to Numbers 10: Children of Israel must make two trumpets of silver hammered work. Priests blow these trumpets. Their united sound calls all Israel (vs 2), to move out the camps (vs. 5). Two trumpets were blown when going to war (vs 9) – that we would be remembered before our Divine One, and then He would save us from our enemies. In verse 10, the trumpets are used to celebrate the feasts.
1 – The sound of the trumpets signals the beginning of the fall feasts.
2 – The trumpets also signaled the beginning of the ten days before Yom HaKippurim, Day of Coverings or Atonement.
3 – The FOCUS of this non-agricultural feast of trumpets is to prepare man to meet his Maker face to face on the Day of Judgment. REPENT!
4 – Addresses our need to make it right with our fellow man.
Matthew 5:22-26, “But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother without cause will be in danger of the judgment; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You worthless person!’ will be in danger of the Sanhedrin; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. 23 Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has anything against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar, and go on your way. First be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Agree with your accuser quickly while you are with him on the way to court, or your accuser may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I say to you, you will never come out from there until you have paid the last bit of money you owe.”
1 John 4:20, “If anyone says, “I divinely selflessly love Yehovah” but hates his brother, he is a liar. For the one who does not divinely selflessly love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot divinely selflessly love Yehovah, whom he has not seen.”
5 – Warns us that someday we will have to give an account of our actions. Terms of accounting – our life’s transactions are being recorded in the King’s books of account. The only thing that can balance our evil acts is the blood of Yeshua, by the grace and mercy of our Father.
Numbers 29:1, “In the seventh lunar month, on the first of the lunar month, you must have a holy assembly to honor Yehovah. You must not do regular work on that day. It will be a day when you blow (silver) trumpets (not animal horns).” The word trumpets is not in the Hebrew here, but from Numbers 10:10 we know it is silver trumpets, not shofars on the first of the lunar month. The word for blowing here is teruah, which means H8643
From H7321; clamor, that is, acclamation of joy or a battle cry; especially clangor of trumpets, as an alarum:—alarm, blow (-ing) (of, the) (trumpets), joy, jubilee, loud noise, rejoicing, shout (-ing), (high, joyful) sound (-ing).
Leviticus 23:24, “Speak to the people of Israel and say, ’In the seventh lunar month, the first of the lunar month will be a solemn rest for you, a memorial with the blowing of trumpets, and a holy assembly.”
Sabbath-rest here is shabbathon, a high holy day, from Strong’s number:
From H7676; a sabbatism or special holiday:—rest, sabbath.
This is a special memorial day as seen from the Strong’s number:
From H2142; a memento (or memorable thing, day or writing):—memorial, record.
It’s an accounting day, a day to record things we need to repent of, people we need to be reconciled to, things we need to make right with our brethren. We’re looking forward to the day of reckoning with our Divine One and Father, Yehovah.
This is a day to make a joyful noise unto Yehovah, as seen in the word blowing or teruah:
From H7321; clamor, that is, acclamation of joy or a battle cry; especially clangor of trumpets, as an alarum:—
We should blow our horns, shout and sing to Yehovah today!! It’s a party day for believers. It’s a day of alarm in the sense that it won’t be long before we meet our Maker face to face on Judgment Day. Make sure your life is right with Him. The word trumpets is not in the Hebrew text there in Leviticus 23. I believe Yehovah showed me to acquire bugles to sound the alarm to his people. The U.S. Cavalry has used bugles for more than 150 years to rally the troops. I’m an American, so I believe I should blow a bugle! You blow whatever Yehovah shows you to blow.
This is a holy or sacred day as seen in Strong’s word number:
From H6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstractly sanctity:—
It’s a day set apart to begin getting our lives in order, between us and our Divine One and between us and our fellow humans.
We are called by the trumpets to come together in a public meeting as seen in the word convocation:
From H7121; something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal:—
We are to set ourselves apart from our worldly pursuits today and come together to rehearse the beginning of Judgment Day. Warn and call each other to repentance. This is the day to sound the alarm on His holy mountain! Judgment begins with the house of Yehovah. We should also rehearse our Lord’s return and our greeting to our Great King!
6 – Yom Teruah happens in the seventh month, Tishri, in September/October. This year the 7th month should begin on Monday sunset, September 10th. I believe we should begin celebrating at sundown on Monday the 10th, the children can look for the new moon; we need to spend the whole day together. We could meet here at home at our regular time, then go to someone’s house to be together the rest of the day. It’s a high party and feast day!!
Seven is a sacred number to us; it represents the term completion.
Philippians 1:6, “I am confident of this very thing, that he who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Yeshua Messiah.”
We want to be as complete, or mature, as possible for when Yeshua returns and for Judgment Day. This feast was designed to help us get there.
The Feast of Trumpets symbolizes our:
Call to warfare
To listening for the Father’s voice
To absolute obedience
To true unity with our brethren
7 – The Feast as seen in ancient Israel:
Ezra 3:1-6, “It was the seventh lunar month after the people of Israel came back to their cities, when they gathered together as one man in Jerusalem. 2 Yehoshua son of Jozadak and his brothers the priests, and Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and his brothers rose up and built the altar of the Almighty of Israel to offer burnt offerings as commanded in the Torah of Moses, the man of the Almighty. 3 Then they established the altar on its stand, for dread was on them because of the people of the land. They offered burnt offerings to Yehovah at dawn and evening. 4 They also observed the Feast of Tabernacles as it is written and offered burnt offerings day by day according to the decree, each day’s duty on its day. 5 Accordingly, there were daily burnt offerings and on the new moons and offerings for all the appointment calendar festivals of Yehovah, along with all the freewill offerings. 6 They began to offer up burnt offerings to Yehovah on the first day of the seventh lunar month, although the temple had not been founded.”
Nehemiah 7:73-8:13, “So the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, some of the people, the temple servants, and all Israel lived in their cities. By the seventh lunar month the people of Israel were settled in their cities. . . 1 All the people gathered as one man in the open area in front of the Water Gate. They asked Ezra the scribe to bring The Book of the Torah of Moses, which Yehovah had commanded Israel. 2 On the first day of the seventh lunar month (Festival of Trumpets), Ezra the priest brought the Torah before the messianic congregation, both men and women, and all who could hear and understand. 3 He faced the open area in front of the Water Gate, and he read from it from early morning until midday, before men and women, and any who could understand, and all the people listened attentively to the Book of the Torah. 4 Then Ezra the scribe stood on a high wooden platform which the people had made for the purpose. Standing beside him were Mattithiah, Shema, Anaiah, Uriah, Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right side; and Pedaiah, Mishael, Malchijah, Hashum, Hashbaddanah, Zechariah, and Meshullam were standing on his left side. 5 Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was standing above the people, and when he opened it all the people stood up. 6 Ezra gave thanks to Yehovah, the great Almighty, and all the people lifted up their hands and answered, “Amen! Amen!” Then they bowed their heads and worshiped Yehovah with their faces to the ground. 7 Also Yehoshua, Bani, Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodiah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, the Levites, helped the people understand the Torah, while the people remained in their place. 8 They read in the book, the Torah of the Almighty, making it clear with interpretation and giving the meaning so the people understood the reading. 9 Nehemiah the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe, and the Levites who were interpreting to the people said to all the people, “This day is holy to Yehovah your Almighty. Do not mourn or weep.” For all the people wept when they heard the words of the Torah. 10 Then Nehemiah said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat and have something sweet to drink, and send some of it to one who has nothing prepared, for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not be grieved, for the joy of Yehovah is your strength.” 11 So the Levites made the people be quiet, saying, “Hush! For this day is holy. Do not be grieved.” 12 Then all the people went their way to eat and to drink and to share food and to celebrate with great joy because they had understood the words that were made known to them. 13 On the second day the leaders of the ancestors’ families from all the people, the priests and the Levites, came together to Ezra the scribe to gain insight from the words of the Torah.” (Men’s Bible study together – for the rest of the ten days!)
2 Chronicles 29:27-28, “Hezekiah commanded them to offer the burnt offering on the altar. When the burnt offering began, the song of Yehovah began also (the Hallel, Psalms 113-119), with the (silver) trumpets, together with the instruments of David, king of Israel. 28 All the messianic congregation worshiped, the singers sang, and the trumpeters played; all this continued until the burnt offering was finished.”
The song of Yehovah: 2 Chronicles 7:3, “All the people of Israel looked on when the fire came down and the glory of Yehovah was on the temple. They bowed with their faces to the ground on the stone pavement, worshiped, and gave thanks to Yehovah. They said, “For he is good, for his covenant loyalty endures forever.””
2 Chronicles 20:21, “When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to Yehovah and give him praise for his holy glory, as they went out preceding the military force, and say, “Give thanks to Yehovah, for his covenant faithfulness endures forever.””
2 Chronicles 23:18, “Jehoiada appointed officers for the temple of
Yehovah under the hand of the priests, who were Levites, whom
David had assigned to the temple of Yehovah, to offer the burnt
offerings to Yehovah, as it was written in the Torah of Moses,
together with rejoicing and singing, as David had given direction.”
Psalms 136:1, “Oh, give thanks to Yehovah; for he is good, for his
covenant faithfulness endures forever.”
Psalms 137:3-4, “There our captors required songs from us, and
those who mocked us required us to be happy, saying, “Sing us one
of the songs of Zion.” 4 How could we sing a song about Yehovah in
a foreign land?”
Psalms 89:15, “Blessed are the people who worship you! Yehovah,
they walk in the light of your face.”
Traditionally, the rabbinical Jews celebrate this day on Rosh
HaShanah, the Head of the Year, since the month of Tishri marks
the beginning of their civil year.
The silver trumpets were described in The Writings of Flavius
Josephus, “Antiquities of the Jews”, “Antiquities.3.12.6.
Moreover, Moses was the inventor of the form of their trumpet,
which was made of silver. Its description is this: – In length it was
little less than a cubit. It was composed of a narrow tube,
somewhat thicker than a flute, but with so much breadth as was
sufficient for admission of the breath of a man’s mouth: it ended
in the form of a bell, like common trumpets. Its sound was called
in the Hebrew tongue Asosra. Two of these being made, one of
them was sounded when they required the multitude to come
together to congregations. When the first of them gave a signal,
the heads of the tribes were to assemble, and consult about the
affairs to them properly belonging; but when they gave the signal
by both of them, they called the multitude together.”
8 Some believe Messiah will return on Yom Teruah, some believe he will return on Yom HaKippurim. The feast of trumpets is yet to be fulfilled. Some believe that the Feast of Trumpets is the two houses coming back together as one united voice announcing the Messiah’s return. I believe these two Messianic voices will witness for 10 days until all Judah is saved by grace through faith in Yeshua Messiah on Yom HaKippurim, because they will see Whom they have pierced and will finally appropriate the atoning blood of Yeshua for themselves.
Revelation 1:10, “I was in the Ruach on the Lord’s day. I heard
behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,”
Isaiah 58:1, “Cry loudly; do not hold back. Lift up your voice like a
trumpet (cornet). Confront my people with their rebellion, and the
house of Jacob with their sins.”
9 It could be that Christians and Jews are the “two witnesses”. Yehovah told the children of Israel in Isaiah 43:10a ““You are My witnesses,” says Yehovah…” Yehovah divided the 12 tribes into two houses in 2 Chronicles 11:4a, “’Yehovah says this, “You must not attack or make war against your brothers. Everyone must return to his own house, for I have caused this to happen.”’ Heavenly Father has two witnesses, but we still deny each other and have never sounded our voices in unison. It is only the two unified voices that will summon all Israel. So Yom Teruah foretells the day when the two voices speak in perfect harmony. It foretells the day when “two witnesses” will fulfill their true purpose of confirming the truth of Yehovah’s Word – Genesis to Revelation.
10 Two hammered silver trumpets. The fire of Yehovah refines the silver of our lives before Him. Jeremiah 9:7a, “So Yehovah of the heavenly armed forces says this, “See, I am about to test them. I will examine them.”” Daniel 11:35, “Some of the wise will stumble so that refining will happen to them, and cleansing, and purifying, until the time of the end. For the appointed time is still to come.” Zechariah 13:9, “I will bring that third through the fire and refine them as silver is refined; I will test them as gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will answer them and say, ‘This is my people!’ and they will say, ‘Yehovah is my Almighty!’” Hosea 1:10-11, “Yet the number of the people of Israel will be like the sand of the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. It will be that where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ it will be said to them, ‘You are people of the living Divine One.’ 11 The people of Judah and the people of Israel will be gathered together. They will appoint one leader for themselves, and they will go up from the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel.” Malachai 3:3, “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi. He will refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings of righteousness to Yehovah.”
Our refining or affliction is only for a season. Isaiah 64:12, “How can you still hold back, Yehovah? How can you remain silent and continue to humiliate us?” 2 Thessalonians 1:1-10, “Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, to the messianic congregation of the Thessalonians in Yehovah our Father and Lord Yeshua Messiah. 2 May grace be to you and peace from Yehovah our Father and Lord Yeshua Messiah. 3 We should always give thanks to Yehovah for you, brothers. For this is appropriate, because your faith is growing very much, and the love of each of you abounds for one another. 4 So we ourselves speak proudly about you among the messianic congregations of Yehovah. We talk about your patience and faith in all your persecutions. We talk about the afflictions that you endure. 5 This is a sign of Yehovah’s righteous judgment. The result is that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of Yehovah for which you suffer. 6 It is righteous for Yehovah to return affliction to those who afflict you, 7 and relief to you who are afflicted with us. He will do this at the appearing of Lord Yeshua from heaven with the angels of his power. 8 In flaming fire he will take vengeance on those who do not know Yehovah and on those who do not respond to the gospel of our Lord Yeshua. 9 They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power. 10 He will do this when he comes on that day to be glorified by his people and to be marveled at by all those who believed. For our testimony to you was believed.” Daniel 7:18,22, “18But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom, and they will possess it forever and ever. 22until the Ancient of Days came, and justice was given to the holy people of the Most High. Then the time came when the holy people received the kingdom.” Daniel 12:10, “Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined, but the wicked will act wickedly. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand.”
But before we receive the Kingdom, we get to hang out in the
wilderness with Yehovah. Hosea 2:14, “So I am going to win her
back. I will bring her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to
her.” Ezekiel 20:35, “Then I will bring you into the wilderness of
the ethno-linguistic nations, and there I will judge you face to
face.” By the time we’re done, we’ll be the fully purged one new
man. Isaiah 27:9, “So in this way, the iniquity of Jacob will be
atoned for, for this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin:
When he will make all the altar stones as chalk and crushed to
pieces, and no Asherah poles or incense altars will remain
11 Immutable Truths – The two witnesses of Judah and Ephraim have been hammering out a twofold message – the twin truths of Law (Torah) and Grace. We must come to unity in order to fully serve our true purpose of confirming the whole Word of Yehovah to Israel. I believe this unity is found only in Messiah Yeshua. John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and lived among us. We have seen his glory, glory as of the one and only who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (Torah).”
We will come together and sing the songs of Moses and Yeshua. Zephaniah 3:18, “as on the day of the appointment calendar festivals. I will take away disaster from you; you will no longer bear any shame for it.” Revelation 15:3-4, “They were singing the song of Moses, the servant of Yehovah, the song of the Lamb: “Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord Yehovah, the Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ethno-linguistic nations. 4 Who will not fear you, Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All ethno-linguistic nations will come and worship before you, because your righteous deeds have been revealed.””
12 In Numbers 10:8 we’re told that the priests sound the trumpets. Well, if you’re a believer, you know what you are. 1 Peter 2:9, “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for Yehovah’s possession, so that you would announce the wonderful actions of the one who called you out from darkness into his marvelous light.” We will not be together until all 12 tribes are together. The restoration of all the tribes is a top priority with Yehovah today. It must be our priorty also. The great day is coming. Hosea 1:11, “11The people of Judah and the people of Israel will be gathered together. They will appoint one leader for themselves, and they will go up from the land, for great will be the day of Jezreel.”
13 The (Re)United House will stand. Luke 11:17, “But Yeshua knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is made desolate, and a house divided against itself falls.” Obadiah 1:18a, “The house of Jacob will be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame,” Zechariah 9:13, “for I have bent Judah as my bow. I have filled my quiver with Ephraim. I have roused your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece, and have made you, Zion, like a warrior’s sword!” Isaiah 11:13-14, “He will turn aside the envy of Ephraim, and hostilities of Judah will be cut off. Ephraim will not envy Judah, and Judah will no longer be hostile to Ephraim. 14 Instead they will swoop down on the Philistine hills on the west, and together they will plunder the people of the east. They will attack Edom and Moab, and the people of Ammon will obey them.” All Israel gathers when both trumpets are blown. Numbers 10:3, “The priests must blow the trumpets to call all the messianic congregation together in front of you at the entrance to the tent of meeting.”
14 In the end, no sin is left in Israel. Jeremiah 50:4-5, 20, “In those days and at that time, declares Yehovah, the people of Israel and the people of Judah will come together to go with weeping and seek Yehovah their Almighty. 5 They will ask the way to Zion and will set off toward it, saying, we will go and join ourselves to Yehovah in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten. . . 20In those days and at that time, says Yehovah, iniquity will be looked for in Israel, but none will be found. I will inquire about the sins of Judah, but none will be found, for I will forgive the remnant that I spare.” Psalm 89:15-16, “Blessed are the people who worship you! Yehovah, they walk in the light of your face. 16 They rejoice in your name all day long, and in your righteousness they exalt you.” The word translated joyful sound or festal shout is teruah, meaning an alarm, signal, sound of tempest, shout, war-cry, battle-cry, and a shout of joy! We enter His very presence with this joyful noise! Numbers 10:10, “Also, at the times of celebration, both your appointment calendar festivals and at the beginning of the lunar months, you must blow the trumpets in honor of your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices for your fellowship offerings. These will act as a reminder of you to me, your Almighty. I am Yehovah your Almighty.”
Now we have 10 days of prayer or awe up through Yom Kippur:
Day 1: Pray that all Israel might come to true repentance, that
they might be saved. Pray that they would put away all of their
idols and be granted a new heart and a new spirit, that they might
live and not die.
Isaiah 30:15a, “For this is what Lord Yehovah, the Holy One of Israel says, “In returning and resting you will be saved; in quietness and in trust will be your strength.”
Ezekiel 18:31-32, “Throw away from off yourselves all of the
transgressions that you have committed; make a new heart and a
new spirit for yourselves. For why should you die, house of Israel?
32 For I do not rejoice in the death of the one who dies, Lord
Yehovah declares, so repent and live!””
Pray that salvation in Yeshua will come to all Israel.
Genesis 48:19, “His father refused and said, “I know, my son, I
know. He also will become a people, and he also will be great. Yet
his younger brother will be greater than he, and his descendants
will become a multitude of ethno-linguistic nations.””
Romans 11:25-26, “For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of this mystery, in order that you will not be wise in your own thinking. This mystery is that a partial hardening has occurred in Israel, until the completion of the ethno-linguistic nations comes in. 26 Thus in this manner (by grace through faith in Yeshua) all Israel will be saved, just as it is written: “Out of Zion will come the Deliverer. He will remove ungodliness from Jacob.”
Ephesians 4:15, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we are to
grow up in every way into him who is the head, that is, Messiah.”
Matthew 1:21, “She will give birth to a son, and you will call his
name Yeshua, for he will save (yoshia) his people from their sins.”
Pray that the veil will be lifted from the eyes of both houses of
Israel so they will see the truth of Yeshua and cease to stumble
Isaiah 8:14, “He will become a sanctuary; but he will be a stone of striking, and a rock of stumbling, for both the houses of Israel, and he will be a trap and a snare to the people of Jerusalem.”
John 2:22, “After he was raised from the dead ones, his disciples
remembered that he said this, and they believed the Scripture and
this statement that Yeshua had spoken.”
Pray that as the “Standard,” Yeshua be lifted up in all His glory
and that the world may see Him in truth and not according to man-
Isaiah 11:12, “He will set up a banner for the ethno-linguistic nations and will gather the outcasts of Israel and the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.”
1 – Have a sabbath rest, blow the trumpets, have a memorial day to record, assemble together.
Leviticus 23:24, “Speak to the people of Israel and say, ’In the
seventh lunar month, the first of the lunar month will be a solemn
rest (shabbathon, a high holy day) for you, a memorial with the
blowing of trumpets, and a holy assembly.”
2 – 120 trumpets dedicated Solomon’s Temple at the feast. They sang the song of Yehovah. All assembled.
2 Chronicles 5:3, 12-14, “All the men of Israel assembled before the king at the feast, which was in the seventh lunar month. . . 12 Also the Levites who were the singers, all of them, including Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, and their sons and brothers, clothed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps, and lyres, stood at the east end of the altar. With them were 120 priests blowing trumpets. 13 It came about that the trumpeters and singers made music together, making one sound to be heard for praising and thanking Yehovah. They raised their voices with the trumpets and cymbals and other instruments, and they praised Yehovah. They sang, “For he is good, for his covenant loyalty endures forever.” Then the house, the temple of Yehovah, was filled with a cloud. 14 The priests could not stand in order to serve because of the cloud, for the glory of Yehovah filled his temple. (c. 957 BC)”
3 – Ezra read the Torah on this day.
Nehemiah 7:73-8:2, “So the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, some of the people, the temple servants, and all Israel lived in their cities. By the seventh lunar month the people of Israel were settled in their cities. . . 1 All the people gathered as one man in the open area in front of the Water Gate. They asked Ezra the scribe to bring The Book of the Torah of Moses, which Yehovah had commanded Israel. 2 On the first day of the seventh lunar month (Festival of Trumpets), Ezra the priest brought the Torah before the messianic congregation, both men and women, and all who could hear and understand.”
