Return – Feast of Trumpets

And the Lord spoke to Moses saying,“Speak to the Children of Israel, and say to them: The Feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.” Leviticus 23:1

The Feast of Trumpets, also known as Rosh Hashanah, celebrates the new year in Christ. It is believed that God created the world during this time. On this day, a shofar or trumpet is blown to mark the beginning of ten days called the “High Holy Days” or “Days of Awe.” The blowing of the trumpet serves as a “wake-up” call to honor God as King, to remember His goodness and His faithfulness to His people, and to reveal and awaken the conscience and soul of His people. The High Holy Days consist of 10 days of repentance, reflection, and restoration. This period ends on the Day of Atonement.

More Details

The main purpose of the Feasts of Trumpets was to announce the arrival of the seventh month in order to prepare the people for the Day of Atonement, which was ten days later. The seventh month was special because it was the last month in the religious season. It was the time when God would complete his dealings with the people for that year. It was also the last time they were required to journey to Jerusalem until the following year at Passover.

The day was not marked by any special events other than the blowing of trumpets and the offering of sacrifices (see Num. 29:1-6). The Hebrews always blew trumpets on the first day of each month so everyone would know the new month had arrived (see Num.10:10). But on the Feasts of Trumpets, they blew them extra long and extra loud throughout the day.

The type of trumpet blown was the ram’s horn, for which the Hebrew word is shofar. The shofar was blown in remembrance of the ram that was sacrificed in place of Isaac (see Gen. 22;13). Jewish tradition teaches that God blew one of the ram’s horns at Mount Sinai at Pentecost and will blow the other ram’s horn at the coming of Messiah.
