Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashana

Tonight we are participating in our second annual observance of the Feast of Trumpets wave to celebrate the reign of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and to look for His return.  It was a lot of fun last year and I expect we will have a lot of fun this year.  In a rather ironic twist it is homecoming night for the Langdon Football game, so we will probably go by there after we are done at the church.  I would be far more excited to have our own homecoming with the Lord instead.  Who knows what may happen.

51Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)

Click the video above to hear the Last Trump as it has been blown for over 3500 years (it is the long loud blast at the end).

For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

May you draw encouragement from the fact that our Lord is faithful and will do what He has promised.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (1 Peter 3:9)

Come quickly, Lord Jesus!

  1. Jeff,

    Thanks so much for posting this. I think what we in the west lack is more of a real-world understanding of Jewish rituals. They, in so many cases, unlock certain things in the Bible.

    This was great. Please post more things like this as you come across them.

    I’ll look NE if you look SW.
    WooHoo

  3. Eric,
    Shouldn’t we both be looking to the East? 🙂

    Joe,
    I am finding that the more I study of Jewish roots teaching and Jewish insights into Scripture that parallel many of the things the New Testament in fact says as well, I do understand better what they were trying to say as well. I think a lot of believers would be stunned to hear that the “last trump” has been blown for around 3500 years, every year on the same day. I know that I was.
