The Feast of Trumpets / Yom Teruah is a yearly memorial of judgement, repentance and forgiveness through the mercy of Yahweh / Yah Ehyeh, by his son, Jesus /Y'shua. On the final day, a shofar (trumpet) is blown, in a unique way. The purpose of the day of blowing the shofar, is to alert and call one to repentance for past sins before Yom Kippur.
In times past, the shofar sounding was used to:
- give a signal during time of war (Judges 3:27).
- proclaim the start and end of the Jubilee year (Lev. 25:9).
- anoint a new king during coronation service (1 Kings 1:34).
- regather the outcasts of Israel (Isa. 27:13).
- warn the people of danger (Amos 3:6).
- declare the arrival of the Messiah (Zech. 9:14).
Why is this year any different?
Well, it is interesting to note that within this year, there culminates some notables occurrences.
It's the end of the 70 year generation of the present state of Israel and the Year of Jubilee. It was in 1947, that the UN passed a resolution to grant the land of Israel, to the Jews, as their homeland. According to Torah, God's Law, all possessions should return to it's rightful owner. As a side note, twenty years, after the UN Resolution to grant Israel its land, in 1967, Jerusalem was returned to it's rightful owner, Israel. That, too, was a Year of Jubilee.
On Sept. 23, 2017, for the first time in 2000 years, the astronomical signs of Revelation 12 will occur.
Could the rest of the chapter be too far away?
What does it all mean?
With the last 20 years having been the greatest timespan ever for natural and manmade disasters and wars and rumors of war, one cannot deny the possibilities, which we will note over the next 30 days.
