IS THE TRUMPET ABOUT TO SOUND?
At sundown in Jerusalem on September 28th the “Feast of Trumpets” (Yom Teruah) begins and is celebrated for two days. Most of you are probably familiar with it being called Rosh Hashana instead. “So what’s the big deal? What do these feasts have to do with us? We’re not under the law of the Old Testament, we’re under grace. And besides, these are Israel’s feasts. They have nothing to do with the church.” If these are some of the questions you have, please read on as they will be answered.
The seven “Feasts of the Lord” given to the children of Israel in Leviticus 23 are all “shadows” of things to come and we would do well in gaining an understanding of them. Also, it’s important to note God says these are His feasts, not Israels.
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 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.
16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
