Leviticus 23:23-25
And YHWH spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying,
‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering.
‘You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to YHWH.'”

The seventh month is simply the seventh month. Our Creator gave us a timetable, so that we could not only know the times and seasons, but we could learn of Him, obey Him, and serve Him. Nowadays, this seventh month is named Tishri. The first day of the seventh month is only a few days away now.
If this day was a work day for me, I would take off work to honor the day as instruction by my Elohim.
YHWH says it is a day of remembrance. A remembrance for what one might ask. It is the day that a HOLY Creator spoke to an entire Nation!
Do many people think about this? I mean REALLY think about this? The Creator Almighty Originator of all that is – SPOKE to a people.

The Feast of Trumpets!! Also known as Yom Teruah which means the “Day of Blowing”

Yom Teruah
Day of Trumpets
The First of the Three Fall Feasts of Yahweh
Leviticus 23:23
And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Speak to the Children of Israel, saying,
‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a
remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering.
“You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to YHWH.’”
One of the first places (if not THE first place) we see the words “blowing of the trumpets, or Ram’s horn, is in Exodus 19:16. In the following verses, we were brought to the mountain by Mosheh TO HEAR the WORDS and VOICE of YAHWEH.
16 And it came to be, on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain. And the sound of the ram’s horn was very loud, and all the people who were in the camp trembled.
17 And Mosheh brought the people out of the camp to meet with Elohim, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.
18 And Mount Sinai was in smoke, all of it, because YHWH descended upon it in fire. And its smoke went up like the smoke of a furnace, and all the mountain trembled exceedingly.
19 And when the blast of the ram’s horn sounded long and became louder and louder, Mosheh spoke, and Elohim answered him by voice.
This is the day Yahweh, our Elohim spoke to us the Ten Words, or Ten
Commands. Yahweh gave Mosheh much, much more instruction one on one,because we said that we could not hear from Yahweh like that ever again, for fear we would die.

The instruction is given again in Numbers 29:1
We are commanded by Yahweh to hold a remembrance of this day on the first day of the Seventh month. The seventh month is the month of Tishri on Yahweh’s Calendar. This time corresponds to late September to Early October on our Pagan Calendar.
The Hebrew word used for our English word ‘remember, or remembrance’ is Zikron.
From the glossary of Hebraic terms:
Teruah – A sound.
shofar An awakening blast; a loud shout. The actual Scriptural designation for the 1st day of the 7th month is literally: “the memorial day of Blasting” (Leviticus 23:24).
The word often translated “trumpets” occurs 36 times in the Hebrew Scriptures. (teru’ah),
It is actually singular, and although it can be associated with the blast of a shofar, or ram’s horn (as in Leviticus 25:9), it most literally refers to a loud noise, including a shout of a crowd or army. It does not necessarily involve the blowing of a trumpet (see, for example, 1 Samuel 4:5). It can simply mean a shout of triumph or victory, or even a cry of alarm. The context of Leviticus 23 does not make clear what is intended, though the word often does have apocalyptic connotations (as in Tzephanyah 1:16). What should not be overlooked is that the concept of a memorial is somehow also imbedded in the meaning of this holiday and the Hebrew word refers to something recalled or (zikron) remembered—either from the past, or in anticipation of the future.
Zikron – to call something from the past into the present.
In the writings of the re-newed covenant (The New Testament), Yahshua and His disciples are seen observing this feast beginning in John chapter 7. Yahshua instructs His disciples to go ahead up to Jerusalem in observance of the Feasts that begins with the Feast of Trumpets and culminates in the Feast of Tabernacles to occur 15 days later. The Feast of Trumpets is not one of the Feasts that command appearance in Jeruselam, but it is one of the 7 moedim (set apart holy days of Yahweh) that are to be observed throughout our generations.
On this day, we are to blow the Shofar, blow the trumpet, shout and proclaim in remembrance of the day that our Elohim made us holy and set-apart by giving us the Commandments, His Torah (the teachings and instructions of Yahweh.)
The Spring Feasts have all been fulfilled when Yahshua came the first time and was sacrificed.
The Fall Feasts have yet to be fulfilled, and WILL BE fulfilled when Yahshua
returns again. So here, the Fall Feasts take on a new meaning of what is yet to come. The blowing of the trumpets will usher in the Messiah at a day in the future.
Knowing about this Feasts, AND ALL THE FEASTS will help us to be prepared on the time-table of our Holy Elohim.
Yom Teruah is the only Feast that occurs on a day and hour no one knows
because it is determined by the sighting of the re-newed moon in the 7th month.
Interestingly, these exact words were used by Yahshua when he spoke of His return
Mathew 24:36 “But concerning that day and the hour no one knows, not even the messengers of the heavens, but My Father only.”
Just think about what this could mean about this Feast and what could be coming some year in the future on the 1st day of the 7th month!

You know what I and my house will be doing on Yom Teruah!! Blowing the Shofar and shouting: “The King of Israel lives!!!”
