The Last Trump

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Zoom Meeting

There are many people in need of fellowship and who are sitting at home on the Sabbath with no one to talk to or debate with. I want to encourage all of you to join us on Shabbat, and to invite others to come and join us as well. If the time is not convenient then you can listen to the teaching and the midrash after on our youtube channel.

What are we doing and why do we teach this way?

We are going to discuss both sides of an issue and then let you choose. It is the work of the Ruach (Spirit) to direct and to teach you.

The medieval commentator Rashi wrote that the Hebrew word for wrestle (avek) implies that Jacob was “tied”, for the same word is used to describe knotted fringes in a Jewish prayer shawl, the tzitzityot. Rashi says, “thus is the manner of two people who struggle to overthrow each other, that one embraces the other and knots him with his arms”.

Our intellectual wrestling has been replaced by a different kind of struggle. We are Wrestling with Yehovah as we grapple with His Word. It is an intimate act, symbolizing a relationship in which Yehovah and I and you are bound together. My wrestling is a struggle to discover what Yehovah expects of us, and we are “tied” to the One who assists us in that struggle.

Today, many say Israel means “Champion of God”, or better — the “Wrestler of God”.

Our Torah sessions each Shabbat teach you and encouraged you to constantly challenge, question, argue against, as well as view alternative views and explanations of the Word. In other words, we are to “wrestle with the Word” to get to the truth. Jews worldwide believe that you need to wrestle with the Word and constantly challenge Dogma, Theology, and views or else you will never get to the Truth.

We are not like most churches where “The preacher talks and everyone listens.” We encourage everyone to participate, to question and to contribute what they know on the subject being discussed. We want you to be a champion wrestler of the Word of Yehovah. We want you to wear the title of Israel, knowing that you not only know but are capable to explain why you know the Torah to be true with logic and facts.

We have a few rules though. Let others talk and listen. There is no discussion about UFO’s Nephilim, Vaccines or conspiracy-type subjects. We have people from around the world with different world views. Not everyone cares who is the President of any particular country. Treat each other with respect as Fellow wrestlers of the word. Some of our subjects are hard to understand and require you to be mature and if you do not know, then listen to gain knowledge and understanding and hopefully wisdom. The very things you are commanded to ask Yehovah for and He gives to those who ask.

Jas 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and with no reproach, and it shall be given to him.

We hope you can invite those who want to keep Torah to come and join us by hitting the link below. It is almost like a Torah teaching fellowship talk show with people from around the world taking part and sharing their insights and understandings.

We start off with some music and then some prayers and it’s as though you were sitting around the kitchen back in Newfoundland having a cup of coffee and all of us enjoying each other’s company. I hope you will grace us with your company someday.

Sabbath July 10, 2021, will be at 1 PM Eastern for our afternoon service. 

We look forward to you joining our family and getting to know us as we get to know you.

Joseph Dumond is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Septennial Torah Portion

If you go to Torah Portion at our archived section, you can then go to the 5th year which is the 5th year of the Sabbatical Cycle, the one we are in now, as we state at the top of every News Letter. There you can scroll down to July 10, 2021, and see that this Shabbat we could very well be midrashing about

Genesis 44

2 Samuel 17-18

Psalm 88

Luke 7

If you missed last week’s exciting discoveries as we studied that section you can go and watch past Shabbats on our media section.

 


New Moon of the 6th Month

This Shabbat will be the 29th day of the 5th month. The New Moon is not going to be seen in Israel as it will be too low on the horizon. It may be seen in North America but we all know and understand that if one of the Two Witnesses were to see the New Crescent moon they would have to report to the Temple and bring testimony to the High Priest. Therefore we wait for witnesses to sight the crescent moon from Jerusalem or the rest of Israel.

The first day of the 6th month will be Sunday night and Monday Day by default. Each month can only be 29 or 30 days and Sunday will be the 30th day of the 5th month.


 

The Fall Feast Dates 2021

Now that we are about to begin the 6th Month, it is time to consider just how close we are to the fall Holy Day Season.

August 10, 2021, will be the Feast of Trumpets. ALREADY!!!

Then ten days later will be the Day of Atonement on August 19, 2021.

August 24th will be the first day of the Feast of Sukkot for 7 days.

And August 31, 2021, will be the 8th Day Feast.

ALL HOLY DAYS BEGIN THE EVENING BEFORE AT SUNSET!

The Last Trump

I am taking my article from 2014 to show you what the Last Trump is. We are just one month away from the Holy Day of the Feast of Trumpets also called Yom Teruah, The Feast of Shouting.

It amazes me to know the Jews do not know the meaning of this day. And at the same time, Christians do not have any clues about what this day means. Does the expression The Last Trump refer to the Feast of Trumpets just because of the word Trump?

If we read Exodus 19 you should know better, but many do not think about this.

Exo 19:16  And it happened on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain. And the voice of the trumpet was exceedingly loud, so that all the people in the camp trembled.

Exo 19:17  And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God. And they stood at the lower part of the mountain.

Exo 19:18  And Mount Sinai was smoking, all of it, because Jehovah came down upon it in fire. And the smoke of it went up like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly.

Exo 19:19  And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and became very strong, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice.

Exo 19:20  And Jehovah came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain. And Jehovah called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.

This was not the Feast of Trumpets.

The following comes from our article on Heaven we quote the following;

The fact that Yehshua was resurrected as a forerunner of the future resurrection of His followers is understood by many Bible readers. What is not so clear to many is that the Bible describes more than one resurrection.

In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul writes:

“But now, Christ is risen from the dead, the first-fruit of those who have fallen asleep . . . For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order; Christ the first-fruits, then those who belong to Christ at his appearing. And then the end, when he shall hand over his kingdom to God his Father” (verses 20-24, Montgomery New Testament).

The reference to first fruits indicates that other fruits are to follow—Yehshua here followed by those who are His at His return. Paul specifies that Yehovah has set an order in His plan by which He will bring up everyone—”all,” as it says—in a resurrection. And in this order, not everyone will be resurrected at the same time.

Notice that Yehshua is here called the first fruits. Yet His followers are elsewhere called firstfruits themselves—and firstborn (James:1:18; Revelation:14:4; Hebrews:12:23). Thus Yehshua is the first of the first fruits. The implication is that yet others will follow as later fruits—at “the end,” as we saw in 1 Corinthians:15:24. And other scriptures confirm that, as we will see.

Those who believe that people go to heaven or hell at death have been troubled at the indications they see in Scripture that comparatively few will be saved. They frequently base this assumption on such passages as Matthew:7:13-14:

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

In these verses, Yehshua explains what happens in “this present evil age” (Galatians:1:4), in which Yehovah is not calling everyone to be converted now. We read in Revelation:12:9 that Satan “deceives the whole world.” John writes,

“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (1 John:5:19).

Mankind as a whole is deceived— for the time being. Yehshua states,

“No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day” (John:6:44).

Yehshua plainly indicates here that only certain ones will be in the resurrection to which He refers—those who are specifically called by Yehovah. The Bible teaches that in this particular age—the age preceding the 7th millennium—Yehovah is calling only a small portion of mankind to enter and partake of His Kingdom.

We saw part of this in the first wave offering in our study about Yehovah dwelling with us when we looked at The Days of Unleavened Bread.

I would like you all to now go and read our article from 2005 titled Pentecost’s Hidden Meaning.

Having now read Pentecost’s Hidden Meaning consider the purpose of this day of Shavuot.

In Exodus 19 and 20, it is the day Yehovah gave Israel the Ten Commandments from His own voice. This was the very day Israel saw the cloud on the Mountain of Sinai and heard Yehovah speak these words Himself. This is also the very same day that the Holy Spirit was given to the Apostles in the book of Acts.

If you have read the article on Pentecost as I have asked you to, then you will also understand that on this day is the second wave offering which represents when all those who turned back to Yehovah in keeping His commandments, from the Apostles down to us today who will be alive at that time, will be raised back to life or changed to spirit beings. We are the wheat in that bread that is waved before Yehovah.

Now consider the following verses in chronological order.

We read of the first Passover Yehshua went up to Jerusalem in John.

Joh 2:13 And the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Joh 2:23 And as He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, at the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the miracles which He did.

After Passover comes Shavuot or Pentecost. And it was as this Feast day approached that Yehshua stated the following, warning HIs apostles not to look at the harvest of Sukkot which was 4 months away, but to look to the harvest at hand, the Wheat harvest of Shavuot.

Joh 4:35 Do you not say, It is yet four months, and the harvest comes? Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, for they are white to harvest already.

Again before Yehshua said that He was talking to a woman at the well about water.

Joh 4:13  Jesus answered and said to her, Whoever drinks of this water shall thirst again, 14  but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

But He was giving us a veiled hint at the meaning of the Feast of Shavuot, which came to pass just 3 years later when the Apostles were given this Holy Spirit on Shavuot.

Water is a symbol, a “type,” of the spirit of Yehovah, and is often used analogously to represent the holy spirit. In Scripture, Yehovah is also known as “the Holy Spirit”, the “spring of living waters.”

Jer 2:13  For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me, the Fountain of living waters, to hew out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.

Isa 44:3  For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground. I will pour My spirit on your seed, and My blessing on your offspring; 4and they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water-courses.

After Yehshua spoke with the women at the well we read of this Feast that Yehshua went up to Jerusalem to keep.

Joh 5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

John 6:35 is a key verse in the record, and it reads:

“Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.’”

In John 7, he proved it by referring to the Old Testament, of which he himself is the subject. The promised Messiah was Yehovah, the eternal fountain, the spring of living water, sent to give drink to a dying world. And what is that “liquid” refreshment? As verse 39 emphasizes, it is the holy spirit, again analogously referred to as water. But this time, it is at the end of Sukkot and just as the Feast of the Eighth Day was about to begin.

Joh 7:37  And in the last day of the great feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38  He who believes on Me, as the Scripture has said, “Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” 39  (But He spoke this about the Spirit, which they who believed on Him should receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

That Holy Spirit was given as promised on the Feast day of Shavuot in 31 C.E.

Act 2:1  And in the fulfilling of the day of Pentecost, they were all with one accord in one place. 2  And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven as borne along by the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3  And tongues as of fire appeared to them, being distributed; and it sat upon each of them. 4  And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Act 2:33  Therefore being exalted to the right of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured out this which you now see and hear.

When John the Baptist came as a forerunner to the Messiah, many people asked him if he was the Messiah. Look closely at his reply:

Luk 3:15  And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts concerning John, lest perhaps he was the Christ, 16  John answered all, saying, I indeed baptize you with water, but He who is mightier than I comes, the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to loose. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire, 17  whose fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly purge His floor and will gather the wheat into His storehouse. But He will burn the chaff with unquenchable fire.

When each of us is baptized into the family of Yehovah by complete immersion in running or living water, we are in fact stating publicly our death to the flesh or the old man, and our rebirth or impregnating of the Holy Spirit in us. We are not yet spiritual beings but we are growing in spiritual knowledge and understanding the same way a fetus grows but is not yet born.

The Holy Spirit, like water, is used to wash us of our sins, of our uncleanness.

Hebrews 9:10 mentions “various ceremonial washings” in the Law, and the Greek word for “washings” there is “baptisms.” Yehovah could have easily used one of several other Greek words, such as pluno, which is used of washing inanimate things; nipto, used of washing a part of the body; or louo, which means “to bathe” or “to wash the entire body.” Instead, He chose “baptisms” to refer to the Old Testament washings.

Exodus 30:17-21 mentions the bronze basin that was placed between the door of the Tabernacle and the altar so the priests could wash their hands and feet, thus ceremonially purifying themselves so they would not die in the presence of God. Water baptism under the Law was also representative of the one baptized going down into the grave and then being re-born unto life.

According to Exodus 40:12, Aaron and his sons were brought to the Tabernacle and washed with water. When Solomon built the Temple in Jerusalem, he had a basin cast of bronze that was so large the Bible calls it “the Sea.” Scholars estimate that it held about 12,000 gallons of water and was a source of water for bathing, which was sometimes done by pouring the water over the man, and sometimes by putting it in a different container (2 Chron. 4:6).

The Mosaic Law was full of regulations about washing. There were many different things that a person could do that would make him unclean, and often the Law said that he then had to wash in water in order to re-enter the congregation. Compare Leviticus 14:9; 15:7,8,11,13,21,22,27; 16:26,28, and note the following similar verses:

(Lev 17:15) And any soul that eats a dead body, or a torn thing, whether a native or a stranger, he shall both wash his clothes and bathe in water, and be unclean until the evening. Then he shall be clean.16But if he does not wash, nor bathe his flesh, then he shall bear his iniquity.

Now that we understand the relationship of water and the Holy Spirit from the scriptures let us get back to those things Yehshua was saying in John leading up to Shavuot. In John 5 this mysterious Feast of the Jews is Shavuot which was approaching.

Joh 5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Now listen carefully to what Yehshua was saying. This is huge, especially now in hindsight. Especially now because we know what took place at Passover on the first wave sheaf day. Shavuot is the next time or the completion of the second wave sheaf which began to be counted from the first wave sheaf during Passover.

Joh 5:25 Truly, truly, I say to you, The hour is coming and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and they who hear shall live. 26 For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has given to the Son to have life within Himself, 27 and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. 28 Do not marvel at this, for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves shall hear His voice, 29 and shall come forth, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have practiced evil to the resurrection of condemnation.

A few short years later Yehshua would rise up from the grave and lead a host of captives with Him at Passover.

Eph 4:8  Therefore He says, “When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive and gave gifts to men.”

Psa 68:18  You have gone up on high; You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts for men, yes, for the rebellious also, that You might dwell among them, O Jehovah God.

1Co 15:20  But now Christ has risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruit of those who slept. 21For since death is through man, the resurrection of the dead also is through a Man. 22For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own order: Christ the first-fruit, and afterward they who are Christ’s at His coming; 24then is the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He makes to cease all rule and all authority and power.

Again these first fruits were raised from the grave when Yehshua rose during Passover 31 C.E. Before that date no man had gone to heaven except the son of man who came down from heaven. Those captives are those held captive by the grave which is what Satan had control over until that time.

2Ti 2:26  and that they awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.

Being a servant of Satan is sin, which leads to death and captivity.

Those 24 Elders or ancestors in revelation were raised up at that time with Yehshua. They were part of that wave offering done Sunday Morning which is also when the count to Shavuot begins from.

Mat 27:52  and the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep arose, 53 and coming out of the tomb after His resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.

Again returning to the Apostle John about this Feast of the Jews we now know that this is the Feast of Shavuot. Another thing that Yehshua says at this time about this Feast is that only those whom the Father is calling will be raised up at this special time.

Joh 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who has sent Me draw him, and I will raise him up at the last day.

That last day is the last day of the counting of the Omer, the 50th day, Shavuot. It is on this day of Shavuot that those of us who are alive and all of those who have lived and died believing in the Messiah and Yehovah. They are the same person! All those who died since Passover 31 C.E. up until this time, (Which I believe to be 2033 in our near future), will be changed and or raised up in a twinkle of an eye.

1Co 15:51  Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we shall not all fall asleep, but we shall all be changed; 52  in a moment, in a glance of an eye, at the last trumpet. For a trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed. 53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

It is at this time and this time only that you will be born again as a spirit being as Paul has just told you. Only then do you put on immortality.

This is the Last Trump. It is not the Feast of Trumpets as the uneducated assume.

Isa 12:1  And in that day you shall say, O Jehovah, I will praise You; though You were angry with me, turn away Your anger, and You shall comfort me. 2  Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also has become my salvation. 3  And with joy you shall draw water out of the wells of salvation. 4  And in that day you shall say, Praise Jehovah! Call on His name; declare His doings among the people, make mention that His name is exalted. 5  Sing to Jehovah; for He has done excellent things; this is known in all the earth. 6  Cry out and shout, O dweller of Zion; for great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst.

Remember what we showed you in John 7. Yehovah is salvation and Yehshua is Salvation. He is the wells of Salvation. Salvation in Hebrew is Yehshua.

Joh 7:37  And in the last day of the great feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38  He who believes on Me, as the Scripture has said, “Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” 39  (But He spoke this about the Spirit, which they who believed on Him should receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Now we just read in 1 Corinthians about being raised at the last trumpet and many just assume this to be speaking of the Feast of Trumpets. But the Feast of trumpets does not teach us about us being raised from the dead. Instead, it teaches us about the coming of Yehshua’s birth in 3 BC and of His coming at the end of the 7th Millennium just before the 8th one is to begin. So what is Corinthians telling us?

Look at the examples of Trumpets on Shavuot that we already have.

Exo 19:16  And it happened on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mountain. And the voice of the trumpet was exceedingly loud, so that all the people in the camp trembled. 17  And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet with God. And they stood at the lower part of the mountain. 18  And Mount Sinai was smoking, all of it, because Jehovah came down upon it in fire. And the smoke of it went up like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly. 19  And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and became very strong, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice. 20  And Jehovah came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain.

Act 2:1  And in the fulfilling of the day of Pentecost, they were all with one accord in one place. 2  And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven as borne along by the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3  And tongues as of fire appeared to them, being distributed; and it sat upon each of them. 4  And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Eze 43:2  And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. And His voice was like the sound of many waters. And the earth shone with His glory.

Psa 93:4  Jehovah on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea.

Rev 19:1  And after these things I heard a great sound of a numerous crowd in Heaven, saying, Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and honor and the power to the Lord our God! 2  For true and righteous are His judgments. For He has judged the great harlot who defiled the earth with her fornication, and He has avenged the blood of His servants out of her hand. 3  And secondly they said, Hallelujah! And her smoke rose up forever and ever. 4  And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God sitting on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah! 5  And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all His servants, and the ones fearing Him, the small and great. 6  And I heard as the sound of a great multitude, and as the sound of many waters, and as the sound of strong thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For the Lord God omnipotent reigns! 7  Let us be glad and rejoice and we will give glory to Him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has prepared herself.

Whenever the King or the Queen is about to enter there is the blasting of Trumpets and the crowds shouting out. This earthly act is the same as when Yehovah is going to come and each time He has come to earth there were loud long blasts as we have just read.

The Feast of Shavuot is when we will be changed to spirit beings. So, how is this all tied into the Eighth Day Feast?

First of all, it is showing us the second phase of Yehovah’s Plan of Salvation. Phase one was when the Saints were raised to life during the first wave offering. The second phase is when the rest of the Saints up to that time, when this happens in a few short years, will be changed to spirit beings. The third phase is on the Eighth Day and we have yet to talk about it and will not at this time.

The Feast of Shavuot is the 8th Sabbath.

Lev 23:15  And you shall count to you from the next day after the sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete. 16 To the next day after the seventh sabbath you shall number fifty days. And you shall offer a new food offering to Jehovah.

This is the exact same thing for the Jubilee year which is also the eighth Sabbatical year.

Lev 25:8  And you shall number seven sabbaths of years to you, seven times seven years. And the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be forty-nine years to you. 9Then you shall cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth of the seventh month; in the day of atonement, the trumpet shall sound throughout all your land. 10And you shall make the fiftieth year holy, one year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee to you, and you shall return each man to his possession, and you shall return each man to his family. 11  That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee to you. You shall not sow, neither reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather in it of your undressed vine. 12For it is the jubilee. It shall be holy to you. You shall eat the increase of it out of the field.

When we examine the word Jubilee we learn a few more things about it. Notice that the word for Jubilee is Teruah. This is the same word used for the Feast of Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets. Also notice these Teruah are used for both joy and a battle cry.

H3104      ???    ????     yo?be?l  yo?be?l    yo-bale’, yo-bale’

Apparently from H2986; the blast of a horn (from its continuous sound); specifically the signal of the silver trumpets; hence the instrument itself and the festival thus introduced: – jubile, ram’s horn, trumpet.

H2986     ???     ya?bal     yaw-bal’

The Feast of Trumpets and the Jubilee year are an announcement. But not just any announcement. They are announcing the arrival of THE KING, of Yehovah. This is beyond my ability to adjectively say how huge this is. But the Feast of Sukkot is symbolic of what is to come just before the Eighth Day Feast. It is at the end of the 7th Millennium that the Jubilee year will announce the coming of the GREAT KING YEHOVAH in that 8th Millennium.

We are commanded to keep Sukkot with Joyfulness. It is known as the Feast of Joy.

Deu 16:13  You shall keep the Feast of Tabernacles seven days after you have gathered in your grain floor and your wine press. 14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your male slave, and your slave-girl, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow inside your gates. 15 Seven days you shall keep a solemn feast to Jehovah your God in the place which Jehovah shall choose. Because Jehovah your God shall bless you in all your increase, and in all the works of your hands, therefore you shall surely rejoice.

It is the Feast of Trumpets that warns us of war and judgment leading into the 10 days of Awe and concluding on the Day of Atonement. These are the Trumpets of battle cries. But those trumpets of Shavuot and leading up to the Eighth Day are not battle cries but ones of Joy. We will cover more in upcoming articles on the Eighth Day and the great meaning it represents in Yehovah’s plan of Salvation for all mankind.

Num 10:1  And Jehovah spoke to Moses saying, 2  Make two trumpets of silver for yourself. You shall make them of beaten work. And they shall be used for the calling of the assembly and for causing the camps to go forward. 3  And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall gather themselves to you at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4  And if they blow with one, then the rulers who are heads of the thousands of Israel shall gather themselves to you. 5  When you blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall pull up stakes. 6  When you blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall pull up stakes. They shall blow an alarm for their journeys. 7  But when the congregation is to be gathered, you shall blow, but you shall not sound an alarm. 8  And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets. And they shall be to you for an ordinance forever throughout your generations. 9  And if you go to war in your land against the enemy who fights against you, then you shall blow with the trumpets. And you shall be remembered before Jehovah your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies. 10  Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, you shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings. And they shall be to you for a memorial before Jehovah. I am Jehovah your God.

The Feast of Shavuot, the Feast of Pentecost is when the Last Trump is sounded. The Feast of Trumpets is the Feast of Shouting in anticipation of the coming King. As we approach this special time of year, it is important that you understand this. With this understanding, you can look at the Trumpet blast in Revelation with a clearer understanding.

    hmm, I have learned a lot here. I never knew. I’m stumped by how some are keeping Shavuot this weekend – and then you give the verse pointing to Sukkot being 4 months hence. Seeing the patterns of the first fruit of the spiritual Harvest – the resurrections, I had never even thought of that. I love how you bring out the patterns. thank you.

    Heavy duty. I am grateful to being learning this and have learnt it and am doing it. Question, there are lots of different views on God. To those who do not view Yehovah as Yehshua, they say the SON is God but lower then the FATHER. And many other things they say. Like Psalm 110, the Lord said to my Lord sit at my right hand. This is a confusing verse. There are others in NT.
    At the Tomb, He said, I go to my Father and your Father, to My God and your God.

    These people say what is being taught here as ONENESS theory or MODE-ISM. How can I deal with that? I believe Yehovah is Yehshua.

    I understand the Father and Son terminology through 2 Samuel 7 where Yehovah promises an everlasting throne, kingdom, and house to David. David’s son who take the throne Yehovah will call them His SON and He will be their FATHER.

    This is the context of the NT and it is in reference to the House of David.

    To those who believe in the Trinity, such a statement is blasphemy. To those who believe in the Father and the Son but not the Spirit as an entity, also do not recognize these facts. They claim Jesus is a type of David king but God but lower then the Father.

    Have you already written an article on the ONENESS of Yehovah? And what about the different modes? It seems to me, He can do whatever the heck He wants to do at anytime it is just we humans who put limits on God.

      You are correct. Do not limit Yehovah.
      There are indeed difficult scriptures.

      Why would Yehovah put manna out on the Sabbath? If He did not want them to go then do not put it out there for them to sin. It was put there to test them.

      Exo 16:4 Then Jehovah said to Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from the heavens for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain amount every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My Law or not.

      I say these scriptures are there again to test us. We are to weigh them against this other scripture we say all the time.

      Deu 6:4 Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.

      So is Yehovah two or is He three? Yehovah elohineu, Yehovah Echad. He is one Yehovah.

      I do not have an answer about every single scripture that is written. Some are hard and some very hard. But when I look at Lev 16 and realize that the Goat that was to be killed represented Yehovah it humbles me. Yes, the Goat represented Yehovah, not a substitute, not the Holy Spirit. That goat that was to die for us as an atonement was representing Yehovah who was telling us He was going to die for us. Yehovah HImself!!!!! Think about how great HIs love is for us. I cried when I got this.

      Lev 16:7 And he shall take the two he-goats and present them before Jehovah at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
      Lev 16:8 And Aaron shall cast lots on the two he-goats; one lot for Jehovah and the other lot for a complete removal. Azazel.

      Lev 16:15 Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering that is for the people, and bring its blood inside the veil. And he shall do with that blood as he did with the blood of the young bull, and sprinkle it on the mercy-seat and before the mercy-seat.
      Lev 16:16 And he shall atone for the sanctuary, because of the uncleannesses of the sons of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins. And so he shall do for the tabernacle of the congregation which remains with them in the midst of their uncleannesses.

      So yes there are difficult scriptures in the New Testament for those who know Yehovah is the only God. But those who have God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit they have difficulty with the following scriptures and I do not.

      Isa 43:3 For I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for you.

      I am your Savior I am your Yehshua.

      Isa 43:11 I, I am Jehovah; and there is none to save besides Me.

      Isa 44:6 So says Jehovah, the King of Israel, and His redeemer Jehovah of Hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides Me there is no God.

      Isa 44:8 Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you and made you hear since then? So you are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Yea, there is none. I have not known a Rock.

      Isa 45:5 I am Jehovah, and there is none else, no God besides Me; I clothed you, though you have not known Me;
      Isa 45:6 that they may know from the rising of the sun, and to the sunset, that there is none besides Me. I am Jehovah, and there is none else;

      Isa 46:9 Remember former things from forever; for I am God, and no other is God, even none like Me,

      Now read Isaiah 12:2 and look at the word Salvation. Yehovah is Salvation.

      Isa 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also has become my salvation.

      Salvation is Strongs 3444. Read it and understand.
