Feast of Trumpets

Feast days…

First we are to understand that the word Feast means appointed times. Appointed times set by God.

In Leviticus 23 God spoke to Moses about the 7 Feasts Days or the 7 Appointed times.

Four feasts occur in the spring and are connected to Jesus' first appearance on earth. They are: Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Weeks or Pentecost.

Three feasts in the fall are bunched into fifteen days. Scholars and theologians believe the symbolism of these feasts will be literally fulfilled in connection with Jesus' second coming. They are the Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and Tabernacles. 

Passover points to Jesus as the Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians 7:7). The perfect lamb's blood was spilled to protect the Hebrews from the tenth plague prior to their release from Egypt. Jesus' blood serves as our covering against the justice brought against us due to our sin. Jesus was crucified on the day the Jews slaughtered lambs in preparation for Passover the next day. 

John 7:6

6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come:

John 7:30

30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

His time was Passover


John 8:20

These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

You see Jesus was slain exactly on the Feast of Passover. Or to say the appointed time of Passover.

Then we have the Feast day or Appointment day of Unleaven Bread. When the children of Israel left Egypt they did not have time for their bread to rise. So the cooked unleaven bread.

The Unleavened Bread describes Jesus' sinless life. Leaven is symbolic of sin throughout the Bible. Jesus was without sin and therefore a blameless, spotless, perfect sacrifice for our sins. Jesus' body remained in the grave during the beginning days of this feast. He, like a planted seed, would resurrect into new life. 

When Jesus was buried he fulfilled the Feast or the Appointed day of Unleaven Bread.

First Fruits.

When the children of Israel came into the Promise land of Israel they offered the first fruits of the Spring harvest to the Priests.

Jesus was resurrected on the day of First Fruits, becoming the first to defeat death and offer us new life. This is one reason Paul refers to Jesus as the "firstfruits" of the dead (1 Corinthians 15:20).

So what we are seeing is that so far all of the Feast Days are being fulfilled on exactly their appointed times. Exactly on the same days Jesus fulfilled those feast day or appointed times.

Feast of Pentecost;

In the Old Testament Pentecost was the feast wich occorred fifty days after Passover. As the feast celebrated the exodus of the Israelites from the slavery of Egypt, so Pentecost celebrated God's gift of the Ten Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai.

Fifty days after the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread is the Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost. Several sacrifices were made during the Weeks Festival, which is tied to the theme of harvest. It was at Pentecost (Acts 2) that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit. Peter preached and about 3,000 Jews responded to his proclamation of the gospel. Pentecost is considered to be the birth of the church.

Once again we see that the Feast days are fulfilled exactly on their appointed times.

Then we have this feast day or appointed time;

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.

Once again we have a Feast day on an Appointed time just like all the others.

It is on the first day of the Seventh month exactly? No not exactly because this feast day is a little different. Not that it is not an appointed time but that it is on the first day of the month.

Back in bible days there was not a set calendar. They started their month by the sighting of the new moon. This was every month.

With Feast of Trumpets being the only Feast day or appointed time that was set on the first day of the month it started on the sighting of the new moon.

Therefore it is known as the Feast day of No man Knows the Day or the hour.

If we look at these verses of scripture we understand what Jesus meant when He said these things.

John 4

35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

When Jesus said this he was speaking of the Feast days. There is only one Feast day or appointed day that comes four months after another.

From Pentecost to Trumpets is 4 months.

Then when Paul said this in 1 Corinthians 15

52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Paul was stating exactly when the rapture of the overcomers would be. He knew that the last trump was the last trump of Feast of Trumpets.

When someone tells you that Jesus does not have an appointed time let me remind you of something.

You see even the demons know they have an appointed time.

Matthew 8

28 And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way.

29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? 

Revelation 12

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. (time is appointed)

When someone tells you that the appointed time of the rapture of the overcomers can happen at any time. Ask them why all the other feast days were on appointed times.

The appointed time of Feast of trumpets is the first day of the seventh month.
