Teshuvah – Day 31 (9/21/17)

Posted: September 21, 2017 in Feast of Trumpets, Holidays- Holy Days, Teshuvah 40 Day Devotional

L’ Shana Tova! Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of year 5778, counting the years since the creation of Adam. This is a two-day Feast of the LORD, because ‘no man knows the day or the hour’ when the first sliver of moon is sighted. I have found several names for this ‘fixed appointed time’ on God’s Day-timer. There are 7 Feasts of the Lord, 6 of them have historical significance, but this Feast has no history. The Feast of Trumpets point to future events.

  • Spring Feast Season (all fulfilled) (have to do with ‘personal salvation’)
    • Passover
    • Feast of Unleavened Bread
    • Feast of First Fruit
  • Summer Feast (fulfilled)
    • Pentecost
  • Fall Feast Season (yet to be fulfilled) (have to do with ‘national salvation’)
    • Feast of Trumpets
    • Day of Atonement
    • Feast of Tabernacles

The Names of the Feast of Trumpets reveal of what will be happening when this Feast is fulfilled.

  • Rosh HaShanah – Head (rosh) of the (ha) Year (shanah), when the number of the year changes
  • Yom Teruah – “blowing of trumpets” or “The Day of the Awakening Blast”
  • The Time of Jacob’s Trouble – another name for the Tribulation
  • Yom Ha-Zikaron – “Day of Remembrance” – the day to remember to blow the shofar 100 times
  • Yom HaDin / Day of Judgment / The Opening of the Books / Opening of the Gates – these names all have to do with the 3 books that are opened in heaven on this day for judgment (1) The books of the Righteous (2) The books of the Unrighteous (3) The books of those in-between. These 10 days between Feast of Trumpets and Yom Kippur is believed to be the time when judgment will be set for the next year.
  • Yom HaKeseh – “The Hidden Day”, Zeph 2:1-4, ‘…it may be you shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger’, Ps 27:5, ‘He shall hide me’
  • Ha Kiddushin / Nesuin – “Wedding of the Messiah” – Joel 2:15-16’… let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet (chuppah)’
  • Ha Melech – “Coronation of the Messiah as King of the whole earth”
