Yom Teruah

The Day of Shouting heralds a 10-day period of repentance, leading to the Day of Atonement. Karaite Jews cut it back to its bare-bones Torah form, while the image below represents a Christian interpretation in the context of all seven Feasts of the Lord.

AND YE SHALL PROCLAIM ON THE SELFSAME DAY, THAT IT MAY BE AN HOLY CONVOCATION UNTO YOU

The Lord’s Feasts are His appointed times (moyadim). Some argue that Christians, being of a different dispensation or covenant, don’t need to meet these obligations. Perhaps that is so. But it is a brave person that concludes that these feasts have no prophetic significance in God’s timeline.

In this light, let us reconsider the as yet unfulfilled Fall Feasts, with their respective 2014 dates:

REPENTANCE
September 25-26: Tishri 1 – Feast of TRUMPETS (Yom Teru’ah)
Awakening to Judgement (Rosh Hashanah). And so begins a 10-day period (cf. Days of Awe) of prayer, self-examination, and repentance. Here’s a thought: could this feast be considered the “Feast that No one Knows the Day or the Hour“?

REDEMPTION
October 4: Tishri 10 – Feast of ATONEMENT (Yom Kippur)
The Holiest Day of the year and provides prophetic insight regarding the second coming of Massiach, the restoration of the nation of Israel, and the final judgement of the world. What year will He return? Some say He already has.

REJOICING
October 9-15: Tishri 15-22 – Feast of TABERNACLES (Sukkot)
A seven-day celebration coinciding with the end of the four-species harvest (Festival of Ingathering) and representing the time of restored fellowship with the Lord.

Pastor Bob at Five Doves has written a nice piece about Yom Teruah.

The 2014 Day of Repentance is fast approaching. What will the sound of its trumps bring? Safer than sorry means best to pray that you are found worthy: Hold onto your sombrero, and keep your feet on the ground.
