Feast of Trumpets

Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets)  is a day for the sounding of the shofar. It is a day of making joyful noise unto the Lord (Psalm 81:1-4). After the spring festivals of Passover, First Fruits, and Shavuot, The Feast of Trumpets marks the beginning of the three fall festivals, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. The spring festivals have already been fulfilled by Yeshua. The fall festivals, Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot will be fulfilled when Yeshua returns to rule as King, Mashiach ben David.  

Yom Teruah

Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.

Leviticus 23:24
