Feast of Yom Teruah (Trumpets)
The fall feasts begin with the Feast of Trumpets, also known as Yom Teruah and by the Jews as Rosh Hashanah. The name Rosh Hashanah means “head of the year” or “new year” which is an erroneous description of Yom Teruah. It is a result of the pagan influence the Jews picked up in Babylon when they began using pagan names for months. The scriptural beginning of the year is Abiv 1 and occurs in the spring.
According to Jewish tradition, Yom Teruah begins a 10 day period (days of awe) of repentance and forgiveness culminating on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. However, scripture only specifies one day for Yom Teruah and one for Yom Kippur. There is no special scriptural significance given to the 8 days between them. This is another reason that we should not follow Jewish tradition, but to study these things for ourselves.
This memorial of shouting and trumpets begins on the first day of the 7th month. It is the only New Month festival. It is a day for a miqra qodesh (Holy convocation), a day in which no servile work is to be done.
Num 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.
This festival is observed by the Jews, according to their tradition, for two days because of the difficulty in ascertaining exactly when the new moon is occurring. It is the only festival that is observed for two days in (Israel). It is often referred to as the day only the Father knows. However, according to scripture Yom Teruah.
Yom Teruah is the day of the awakening blast. Teruah means to shout, clamor, a blowing of the trumpets. It will be the time when YAHUSHA will return with a shout at the last blowing of the shofar on Yom Teruah.
1Th 4:16 For YAHUSHA himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of YAHUAH: and the dead in the Messiah shall rise first:
This is when the graves will be opened and the resurrection of the just takes place. The resurrection is not just a New Testament theme; it is also found in the Tanakh (Old Testament). See Isa. 26:19; Dan 12:2 and Eze. 37:12.
The Jews admit that the Torah does not specify the purpose of Yom Teruah, only that teruah means to shout in a loud voice or in unison. Could this be the time when the Jews cry out in a loud voice “Baruch Haba Be’Shem YAHUAH” or “Blessed is he who comes in the name of YAHUAH? (Mat 23:39)
The following is another example of Jewish tradition concerning the period from Yom Teruah to Yom Kippur which is not found in Torah. This is all purely Jewish speculation and imagination.
Jewish belief is that the gates of heaven are opened on this day and will stay open for the 10 day period ending on Yom Kippur. A review is made of all mankind at this time. Three sets of books are opened and men are inscribed into one of those three books during this period. The books are the book of the righteous, the book of the wicked and the book of remembrance or memorial. The righteous are inscribed in the book of righteousness, the wicked are written into the book of the wicked and those that are in between are written into the book of remembrance. They are given another year to repent. The gates of heaven are closed on Yom Kippur and the books are closed. This is why it is a time of repentance and to right all wrongs. Jews will call upon their neighbors during this period to ensure that all is well between them. If it isn’t, it is a time to ask forgiveness and to forgive any wrongs, perceived or otherwise.
Jewish tradition also states that it was on Yom Teruah that Adam was created. They come to that conclusion by rearranging the letters of the first word in Genesis “Bereshith” to read “Alef b’ Tishri” or the first of Tishri.
Using the Zadokite-Enochian Based Priestly Calendar As Found in the Dead Sea Scrolls The Feast of Yom Teruah (Trumpets) is the 1st DAY of 7th MONTH and lands on the Gregorian date of September 18th 2019.
They are Seven Annual Sabbaths
If you thought that The Eternal only had weekly Sabbath Days then you would be mistaken.
There are SEVEN Annual Holy Sabbaths that occur once every year.
The Feast of Yom Teruah (Trumpets) is one of those SEVEN Annual or (High Sabbath’s) Also.
