Feast of Trumpets - Rosh haShanah

And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you. (Numbers 29:1)  On the first day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation—a day of blowing of trumpets, in which no servile work shall be done.


Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets {Shofars}, an holy convocation. (Leviticus 23:24) The kind of trumpets and their use are referred to in (Numbers 10:1-10).  They were silver and there were two of them. The blowing was not throughout all Israel, but only over the sacrifices at the tabernacle.


On Rosh haShanah, this was different.  The Shofar is the primary trumpet! According to Leviticus 23:24 and Numbers 29, Rosh HaShanah is the day of the blowing of the trumpets. The original name is Yom (Day) Teruah (The staccato sound of the horn, which also means “Shout”).  According to the Mishnah (Rosh HaShanah 16a, 3:3), the trumpet used for this purpose is the ram's horn, not trumpets made of metal as in Numbers 10. On Rosh HaShanah,
 A Shofar delivers the first blast, a
silver trumpet the second, and then the Shofar the third.


Today, since the temple does not exist, the use of the silver trumpet is almost unknown.  In its place, the Yemenite horn is used in many congregations as a call to worship. The only evidence we can present that God honors its use is that He visits us with His presence when the Yemenite Shofars are blown!

7 G-dly Feast of Israel

  • Passover is Yeshua is the Lamb of G-d offered as a sacrifice for our sin.
    Unleavened Bread; represent Yeshua as sin of lamb. He has no sin in Him, lying in the tomb.
    First-fruit is when Yeshua rose from the dead and appeared to His disciples like Thomas; touch Me, for a I am raised. Paul said: "He is the First-fruit of the resurrection"
    Pentecost is the Birth of the Church in Acts 2; (120 People as 120 in the time of Nehemiah 120 Elders)
    Trumpets / Rosh HaShanah is a picture of the "rapture". {The great assembly of the uncompromising righteous saints}
    Atonement is a picture of tribulation.
    Tabernacles is a picture of the future Kingdom of G-d. {The 1,000 Years reign of Yeshua on Earth}
