God's Feast Days: Yom Teruah-The Feast of Trumpets 2013

 Today is Yom Teruah, the Day of the Blowing of the Trumpets. Yom Teruah is the Fifth Feast Day, and the First Feast that marks the Fall Feast Days, on YHVH God's Calendar.




 Here's more information on Yom Teruah; an excerpt from LightofMoshiach.org,



YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. ‘You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to YHVH.’" Leviticus 23:23-25
Yom Teruah basically means a day of noise/blasts. Yom Teruah is known as the Feast of Trumpets in Christianity and is better known as Rosh Hashannah (the new year) in modern Judaism. But Yom Teruah isn't really the 'Jewish New Year,' in fact, it falls on the first day of Etanim, (also known traditionally as Tishri) which is the seventh month in YHVH's calendar. The real 'new year' is in Aviv (also known traditionally as Nisan) when Pesakh/Passover occurs.

Yom Teruah begins a ten-day period leading up to the holiest day of YHVH's calendar, Yom Kippur -- the "Day Of Atonement." These ten days are called the 'Days of Awe' in modern Judaism. In fact, modern Judaism also includes the preceding month of Elul also as a time to prepare for the upcoming Fall moedim (appointed times). The sounding of the shofar on Yom Teruah is a wake-up blast -- a reminder that the time is near for the Day of Atonement. It is time to teshuvah (repent, turn back to YHVH). Traditionally, these ten days are ones of heart searching and self examination -- the shofar warns us we need to examine our lives and make amends with all those we have wronged in the previous year, and to ask forgiveness for any vows we may have broken. So a main theme of the Fall Holy Days is repentance.




Next, this video from BeyondToday.TV, explains more about The Feast of Trumpets; how it relates to God's plan for mankind, and His plan for salvation, through Messiah Yahshua/Jesus Christ. In fact, all of the Feast Days point to Yahshua and God's plan of Salvation. Watch this very well-orchestrated video. (Although it's entitiled "Prophetic Holy Days in the Bible", it really zones in on The Feast of Trumpets). Great study!






The next video is a collaboration I put together last year, and wanted to share. Hope you enjoy!
