Yom T'ruah - The Day of Blowing of Trumpets (Shofarot)
A feast on the first day of the biblical 7th month when Israel was called to have a day of blowing of trumpets, and a day of remembrance. The day is a celebration of God as king and anticipates the ushering in of the kingdom of God.

Yom T’ruah – Day of Blowing

This day is traditionally called Rosh Hashanah, meaning head of the year. However, this term never appears in scriptures! In fact, Leviticus 23 verse 24 it says to remember this day on the First (1st) day of the seventh (7th) month! Remember, the first of the year begins in the month where Passover is celebrated. In Leviticus 23.4 and Exodus 12.2 the Lord calls this the start of the year.

OK, so what does it mean? Ironically, there is no other mention of what to do on this day in the scriptures. However, in Revelation there are 7 last trumpets. And in 1 Corinthians 15.52 and 1 Thessalonians 4.19 the sounding as the Lord comes back to take His Church is that of a trumpet. Also, let’s not forget that the first followers of Messiah Yeshua were all Israelites, those called Jews.

Now, let’s add the significance of the date. This is the first day of the 7th month. Seven (7) in scripture signifies God’s number. So here we have a group of Moedim, see the write-up on Feasts, beginning on the first day of the 7th month. We also call this group of celebrations the fall feasts because we celebrate a group of feasts in the spring, consisting of Passover (deliverance, death and resurrection) and Shavuot (Pentecost) representing the early harvest.

Therefore, this season begins on the first of a month representing God’s number with a trumpet blast leading into a time of celebrations representing the fall harvest. We know that harvest not only refers to crop reaping but to God’s reaping times of His harvest (His people).

The trumpet sound in the Hebrew Scriptures consisted of either the Shofar (Ram’s horn) or the silver trumpets. Whenever, the shofar sounded it specifically referred to the time Israel was to come prepared to listen to something God was about to share! For us today, it means to come prepared to listen to the prophetic voice of the Most High God for specific direction either for this season or for this time or both.

Come and join us as we prophetically act out this meeting time anticipating God’s directions for us.
