FEAST of TRUMPETS
Leviticus 23:24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.
It is the only Hebrew feast to occur on a new moon. The Feast of Trumpets is specifically and biblically the first day of the month of Tishri. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Numbers 29:1 ¶ And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.
Servile , according to dictionary.com means: pertaining to a condition of servitude or property ownership in which a person is held as a slave or as partially enslaved. We can still go out and minister as Jesus did on the Sabbath, but work for no man.
The original Hebrew word that is translated as “convocation” is (pronounced) mik-raw means a called assembly. Another literal meaning of the original Hebrew word is a rehearsal – rehearsal meaning to “re-hear” what has been taught. perhaps as many do think and I am one who agrees that we are going to a wedding feast, when we will all hear all the stories of adventure, fist hand, from those who lived them. Before the Lord comes, many trumpets are blown before that day arrives. Similar to the Assembly that we are called to when we gather at the Wedding Feast.
The Spring Feast’s are Passover, Unleavened Bread and Pentecost. These days are a reminder of past events of the movement of God and His people, by His Spirit, that were fulfilled in Christ Jesus
The Fall Feasts, are yet to be fulfilled and are glorious days indeed! The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement, The Festival of Tabernacles and the Eighth Day –
A hope and a glory of the sound of His return.
Numbers 10:8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.
The word ordinance is defined at dictionary.com as: an authoritative rule or law; a decree or command.
Leviticus 23:2-3 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.
There is an eternal rest when we have finished our job here on earth. (our works) Not our works of fulfilling the law, but the works that God has purposed with-in us to fulfill His desire. This fourth commandment is the only God-commanded convocation that is weekly, rather than annual, portrays a future event, an ultimate “day of rest”
Hebrews 4:9-11 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Yahushua sat down at the right hand of the throne and entered into His rest. He is waiting for the sound of the trumpets, to begin the Wedding Feast. Anything we do here on earth, is a dry run, a rehearsal for things to come and when we stop to celebrate the Feast of the Trumpets, when we gather together in an assembly, we are also preparing ourselves for the ultimate day of rest.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
The word trump: salpigx, sal’-pinx :through the idea of quavering or reverberation); a trumpet:–trump
A meeting of a religious character as distinguished from congregation, which was more general, dealing with political and legal matters. Hence it is called an “holy convocation.” Such convocations were the Sabbaths (Lev. 23:2, 3), the Passover (Ex. 12:16; Lev. 23:7, 8; Num. 28:25), Pentecost (Lev. 23:21), the feast of Trumpets (Lev. 23:24; Num. 29:1), the feast of Weeks (Num. 28:26), and the feast of Tabernacles (Lev. 23:35, 36). The great fast, the annual day of atonement, was “the holy convocation” (Lev. 23:27; Num. 29:7).
“convocation.” Easton’s 1897 Bible Dictionary. 07 Sep. 2007. <Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/convocation>.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because He raised Christ from the dead and gave Him great glory.

And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague. And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain
