Feast of Trumpets

Leviticus 23:24-25

[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. [25] Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

 

Numbers 29:1-6

[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. [2] And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without blemish: [3] And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram, [4] And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs: [5] And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you: [6] Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

†††† As I will make the point throughout most if not all of these Holy Day sermons is that though Christians may try in whatever way they want to discredit, do away with or just straight out refuse to acknowledge that these days which The Almighty has made for His people (All those that profess to follow Him) somehow just donít mean anything anymore is saddening. Our Creator that provides us with what we need and has allowed His son to be sacrificed for us, Christians somehow place themselves in Godís position and do away with what He has made for us to enjoy.

†††† The Day of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) has great significance because it also symbolizes the return of Christ. Both 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 and the Trumpets mentioned in Revelation (especially the last trumpet) are the fulfillment of the Day of Trumpets. We look forward to the coming establishment of Godís Kingdom down here. Iím quite sure even both God and His son look forward to that time. This day is a Sabbath unto us a time to take off and enjoy with the LORD and to look ahead to things to come and be thankful for what will be.

†††† The beauty of the Holy Days is exactly that, that we know for a surety what God will do for u and that He has made these days to enjoy and to give Him praise for all that He has done and will do, now and in the world to come. Let us truly take the time to enjoy these Holy Days and to fellowship and appreciate all that The Almighty has done for us.
