The Feast of Trumpets, also known as Rosh Hashanah, celebrates the new year in Christ. It is believed that God created the world during this time. On this day, a shofar or trumpet is blown to mark the beginning of ten days called the “High Holy Days” or “Days of Awe”. The blowing of the trumpet serves as a “wake-up” call to honor God as King, to remember His goodness and His faithfulness to His people, and to reveal and awaken the conscience and soul of His people. The High Holy Days consist of 10 days of repentance, reflection, and restoration. This period ends on the Day of Atonement.
The Day of Atonement is considered the holiest day of the year. Known as the Day of Redemption, this is the day that believers stand before Almighty God and confess their mistakes and sins. Participating in this day helps the believer to recognize that sin has been forgiven through the blood of Jesus Christ. As believers confess their sins and recognize their dependence on God, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross frees them of all unrighteousness. In Christ,we have a future and a hope!
The Feast of Tabernacles is the climax of the Fall Feasts and the most celebrative. It is God’s appointed time for believers to come into His presence and celebrate His glory, provision,protection, and deliverance through Jesus Christ. Leviticus 23:40 says to “Rejoice before theLord your God for seven days.” Deuteronomy 16:14-15 says to “Be joyful at your Feast for theLord your God will bless you and your joy will be complete.”
