Msg #1336 Dual Trumpets
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
This year Yom Kippur, on the 10th day of the month Tishri (called Ethanim in 1Kins8:2) will be on Friday the 13th. That made last Wednesday the first day of the Hebrew seventh month and the Holy Bible says “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein...” (Lev23:24-25) Every Christian should know better, but one said this week was “filled with stupid Jewish Holidays.” I was ashamed and prayed that God would forgive our vain ignorance of His holy days. The feast trumpet is revelation. “Make the two trumpets of silver; of a whole peace shalt thou make them: that thous mayest use them for the calling of the assembly...” (Num10:1-2) The Sabbath day, the blowing of trumpets and the holy convocation observed on the first day of the old Hebrew's seventh month is prophetic of their regathering, (Isa18:3, 27:13, 58) ergo it is also prophetic of Christs gathering of His Church as well. (Ithes4:16-18) Be careful not to go all Roman and allegorical here, there are indeed two literal gatherings portrayed in this feast of trumpets. Christians are ever looking up and listening for one trumpet, a trumpet that will call together his Church into one called out and gathered together body of believers. Consider anew Revelations 4, “After this I looked and behold a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither...” There will be a trumpet which calls to regather all Israel, but abut seven years prior there will be one that raptures the Church. These Hebrew holy days are important to Christians.
