Feast of Trumpets

“Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord.’” Leviticus 23:23-25

The Feast of Trumpets is the first of the fall feasts. It is representative of the second coming of Christ. It is known as Teshuvah (repentance), Yom Hazikkeron (memorial), Yom Hadin (day of judgment), and others. The fact that it is known by so many names shows the multiple fulfillments this ‘day’ will have. Is this the day when the Israelites will recognize the ‘one they have pierced’? Keep in mind that this cannot happen until those who actually pierced Jesus’ side are returned from the dead. “I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.” Zechariah 12:10

Trumpets signifies the opening of books of judgment where every man shall repent to his brother before the Day of Atonement. After this point, second death will be in operation as no man will have excuse.
