Tomorrow is the Day of Trumpets or "Yom Teruah", a feast (Moed) of Elohim.
Yom Teruah is an appointed time, a moed. It’s a day to remember ADONAI with the blowing of trumpets in preparation for the upcoming day of atonement. It’s a day to bring an offering before ADONAI – both for sin and fellowship.
Leviticus 23: The Feast of Trumpets
24 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’
Offerings at the Feast of Trumpets
1‘And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work. For you it is a day of blowing the trumpets.
Ways to celebrate
Well, with all this in mind, what do we do as people who are seeking to live a Biblical lifestyle while remaining sensitive to Jewish traditions and culture? Here are some tips:
Spend some time on Yom Teruah praying and preparing your heart for the days of awe and Yom Kippur to come.
Give some kind of offering to the Lord on Yom Teruah. It can be anything – finances, time, or maybe something creative like a poem or song!
If you can’t blow a shofar as commanded in Torah, become your own “trumpet”! Lift your voice and shout praises to God!
As you continue to live out God’s Word through His Biblical Feasts, keep ONE focus through it all – keep your eyes on GOD, the King of the Universe, and He will direct your steps.
Since I don't (Yet) have a sjofar, I became a "trumpet" with this message and playing Psalm 81.
