We as God’s Melchi Zedek priests are called to bring the Truth of God’s Word, for the Salvation of God’s Jewish people!
Yeshua told us in John 8:32, “You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.”
Israel, the Messianic Body, and Christian believers in Yeshua world wide celebrate this 5th Feast of the 7 Feasts of the LORD given to the Jewish people in Leviticus 23:24 and Numbers 29:1. It was first called Zichron Teruah, and later called Yom Teruah, but it is more commonly known today as the Feast of Trumpets!
Israel has called this Feast Rosh HaShanah, Israel’s New Year!
But according to God’s Word there was never a biblical feast known as Rosh HaShanah. The 1st day of the 7th month is not the New Year!
This great deception has been perpetuated for almost 2000 years.
God spoke to Moses in terms like … the 14th day of the 1st month, the 7th month on the 1st day of the month. The Hebrew names for months all came out of Babylon. The term Rosh HaShanah, which means head of the year was taken from Babylonian teachings about their new year, celebrated twice a year on their months of Nisan & Tishrei. Israel used these names while in captivity in Babylon in the 5th Century, B.C.E. Babylon’s month Tishrei meant beginnings. This was Bablyon’s New Year. This name was later adopted by religious Jews, appearing first in early rabbinical Jewish writings in the Mishnah about 200 A.D. Next it appeared in the rabbinic writings in the Talmud in the 3rd Century.
God clearly told Israel when they left Egypt which month was to be their first month, the beginning of their year, their New Year. Exodus 12:2 The month they kept the Passover was their 1st month.
Of the 7 Feasts of the LORD, the 5th Feast is truly the mystery
Feast of the whole Bible. This 5th Feast is called Zichron Teruah.
It follows the 4th biblical Feast of Shavuot, when God came down on Mount Sinai sounding the Shofar, Exodus 19, & later when the Holy Spirit fell on the 120 believers of Yeshua in the Upper Room.
Leviticus 23:23-25 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath rest, Zichron Teruah, (a memorial to the first blowing of the Teruah), a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.’ ”
Numbers 29:1 ‘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 Yom Teruah (a day of blowing of the trumpets). This Feast is also called the Feast of Trumpets.
This mystery fifth Feast of the 7 Feasts of the LORD, called Zichron Teruah, is a memorial, in commemoration of the Teruah sounded on Shavuot, when God Yeshua first used His voice as a Shofar from above Mount Sinai, to begin calling forth His Bride from the earth, from both Jews and Gentiles. This first Shofar call of Yeshua is known as the First Trump! Exodus 19:13, refers to it as a Jubal, Israel’s first Jubilee, held 50 days after leaving Egypt. The word shofar was used twice, in Exodus 19:16 and 19:19. God verbally gave Israel the ten Commandments (Exodus 20:18).
But God also entered into a Marriage Betrothal Covenant there with Israel + a mixed multitude of Gentiles, who had come out of Egypt with God’s people Israel. (Exodus 24:1-11)
But the real origins of Zichron Teruah go all the way back to Genesis 22:1-18, when God called Abraham to offer Isaac on Mount Moriah. There God spared Isaac with a ram caught in the thicket by both of its horns. God used that ram as the substitution for Isaac, so that the nation of Israel could be born. But those two horns would also represent the two times that Yeshua would use His voice as a Shofar to call forth His Bride to be with Him!
This fourth Feast of the LORD, Shavuot, was at Mount Sinai, when God gave Israel the Ten Commandments and His Torah. Here Yeshua sounded His Teruah, the Shofar call for His Bride. God then entered into a Marriage Betrothal Covenant with Israel and the nations. Later God would divorce Israel because of adultery. (Jeremiah 3:8) But God still cried out, “return … Israel … for I am married to you.” Jeremiah 3:11, 14
Around 1500 years later, also on Shavuot, God gave Israel the New Covenant, and placed the Torah deep into their hearts along with the Holy Spirit of Truth. God once again entered into a Marriage Betrothal with Israel and with the nations. This was only after Yeshua had poured out His Blood and had died for us and gone to Heaven, that the Holy Spirit fell on the 120 disciples of Yeshua in the Upper Room in Jerusalem, around 33 A.D.
Exodus 19:5, 6 “‘Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My Covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a Kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”
Exodus 19:13 “When the Jubal (Jubilee) sounds long, they shall come near the mountain.” 16 Then it came to pass on the third day, in the morning, that there were thunderings and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain; & the sound of the Shofar was very loud, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. 18 Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked greatly. 19 And when the blast of the Shofar sounded long and became louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by voice.
Exodus 20:18, 19 Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the Shofar, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. Then they said to Moses, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.”
God entered a Marriage Betrothal with Israel + a mixed multitude at Mount Sinai. God was the Bridegroom and Israel was His Bride. “I will take you as My People, and I will be your God.” Exodus 6:7
The Torah given by God was like a Marriage contract, or Ketubah. Israel entered into a Marriage Betrothal with God at Mount Sinai, “…. and they stood at the foot of the Mountain.” Exodus 19:17
God’s Jewish and Gentile Bride then agreed to this Ketubah.
Exodus 24:3, 7 So Moses came and told the people all the Words of the LORD and all the judgments. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the Words which the LORD has said we will do.” And he (Moses) took the Book of the Covenant (Torah), and read it in the audience of the people; and they said, “All that the LORD has said we will do, and be obedient.”
Deuteronomy 29:10-15 “All of you stand today before the LORD your God: your leaders and your tribes and your elders and your officers, all the men of Israel, your little ones and your wives, also the stranger who is in your camp, from the one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water, that you may enter into Covenant with the LORD your God, and into His oath, which the LORD your God makes with you today, that He may establish you today as a people for Himself, and that He may be God to you, just as He has spoken to you, and just as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. “I make this Covenant and this oath, not with you alone, but with him who stands here with us today (the Gentiles) before the LORD our God, as well as with him who is not here with us today …”
Isaiah 54:5 “For your Maker is your Husband, the LORD of hosts is His name; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth!”
Nehemiah 8:1, 2 “Now all the people gathered together as one man in the open square that was in front of the Water Gate; and they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded Israel. So Ezra the priest brought the Torah before the assembly of men and women and all who could hear with understanding on the first day of the seventh month.”
(Notice this Jerusalem gathering was held on the Feast of Zichron Teruah, or Yom Teruah, after coming out of Babylon; also notice that no Babylonian names for the months were being used then.)
So what really is this Mystery of the 5th Feast of the LORD? It’s the Marriage of the Lamb Yeshua to His Bride in Heaven!
The 6th Feast of the LORD, Yom Kippur, is when Yeshua returns to earth with His Wife and with the rest of His armies, on the Day of the LORD, the Day of final Judgment of the earth, the Day of Battle, when Yeshua destroys all His enemies. This Day is also when Yeshua will again use His voice as a Shofar, known as the Last Trump, and also called the Great Trump! When this last Shofar sounds, then all Yeshua’s Body will be gathered unto Him in the heavens, both those on the earth and those from Heaven. This Last Trump will be sounded by Yeshua on the Year of Jubilee!
Yeshua’s last Shofar call can be seen in seven different Scriptures: Zechariah 9:14; Matthew 24:27-31; Mark 13:24-27; Isaiah 27:13; 1st Thesallonians 4:16, 17; 1st Corinthians 15:51, 52; Leviticus 25:9
Zechariah 9:14 “Then the LORD will be seen over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning. The Lord GOD (King Yeshua) will blow the Shofar, and go with whirlwinds from the south.”
Jeremiah 31:31-34 “Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will make a New Covenant with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah, not according to the Covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My Covenant which they broke, though I was a Husband to them, says the LORD.
After the New Covenant was inaugurated on Shavuot, Yeshua then again entered into a Marriage Betrothal with Israel (and with the nations) with the outpouring of His Spirit in the Upper Room in Jerusalem. However there must soon come a time when the fullness of Yeshua’s Bride has to come to Heaven for Yeshua’s Wedding with His Bride (His Wife), which will be held on the first day of the seventh month, on the Feast of Zichron Teruah.
John 3:29 “He who has the bride is the Bridegroom …”
Matthew 25:6 “And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘Behold, the Bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!’
25:10 … the Bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with Him to the Wedding; and the door was shut.”
Revelation 10:1 I saw still another Mighty Messenger (Yeshua) coming from Heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on His head, His face was like the Sun, and His feet like pillars of fire. 10:2 He had a little book open in His hand. And He set His right foot on the sea and His left foot on the land, 10:3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a Lion roars. 10:6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer, 10:7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the Mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.
Revelation 11:15 Then the seventh angel sounded, and there were loud voices in Heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Messiah, and He shall Reign forever and ever! 11:18 … and that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great …”
Revelation 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the Marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Wife has made herself ready.” 19:8 To her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen clean & bright, for the fine linen is righteous acts of the saints. There is no Pre or Mid or Post Trib Rapture of Yeshua’s Bride. Yeshua’s remnant Bride will be taken out at the Midnight Hour, just as Yeshua told us in Matthew 25:6. So when is this Midnight Hour? It will be very late in the Great Tribulation years.
Yeshua’s Bride are His best soldiers on the planet, always ready to carry out the most difficult assignments for their Bridegroom King. The Church is not Yeshua’s Bride. The Church is Yeshua’s Body! Ephesians 1:22, 23; 4:16; Colossians 1:24; 1st Corinthians 12:27 But within Yeshua’s Body is His hidden mystery Bride.
For almost 2000 years all true believers who have died have gone to Heaven. And many of those believers in Heaven today are members of Yeshua’s Bride. But there must soon come a time when all the remaining members of Yeshua’s Bride will be taken to Heaven in preparation for the Wedding, the Marriage of the Lamb Yeshua with (His Wife) His beloved Bride.
Most Church theories are missing the biblical keys about the Rapture of Yeshua’s Bride; and so they use the Shofar Scriptures for the Rapture, thinking that these Scriptures relate to Yeshua’s Bride going to Heaven. But the Shofar Scriptures are all about Yeshua’s return with His Bride from Heaven on Yom Kippur.
John 18:37 Yeshua answered, “You say rightly that I am a King. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the Truth! Everyone who is of the Truth hears My voice.” Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”
Deuteronomy 4:2 “You shall not add to the Word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the Commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”
Proverbs 30:6 “Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”
Leviticus 23:2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, ‘The Feasts (moedim) of the LORD, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My Feasts!”
The beginning of the fall Feasts of the LORD is the time of year when thousands of people are wishing each other, “Shanah Tova,” or “Happy New Year!” This may be a nice Jewish tradition, but it has nothing to do with reality, or with any biblical truths. It comes from pagan religious beliefs which have been perpetuated by our Jewish people for almost 2000 years, and which the enemy of our souls has used to hide from us the real Truth and the real meaning of God’s fifth biblical Feast of Leviticus 23:24, Zichron Teruah.
All these revelations are from the Holy Spirit.
