    Me tooooo.. it is a whole new room in which the Lord lays out our salvation, it is His strategy war room. I have found many blessing by studying in this place where the Lord's feasts are kept.

    During the Feast of Trumpets, you will have watchmen who will give out the trumpet
    warning, the heralding of the news, and the announcements of what is soon to come to pass.
    These watchmen on the wall of Zion are the two witnesses of Revelation.

    So it will be when the two witnesses, in Revelation, prophesy to the world, they will open
    the eyes of the world as to what is going on in God’s world. They will also show what is
    going on and going to happen in our world as we near the end of earth’s history.

    When studying the feasts, I found I needed to learn more about all the other things that are involved.
    The ram's horn that was blown on the tenth day of the seventh month was also blown during a jubilee year. Jubilee points to the future perfect freedom. This Jubilee coming up will be the Jubilee of Jubilees or better known as the Millennium.

    The Bible commands us to blow the trumpets on the Feast of Trumpets as a memorial, ten
    days to remember but what? It does not tell us why the trumpets need to be blown. Nothing, no explanation, no meanings divulged or even hinted at. Various attempts have been made to explain the festival. By searching through the Scriptures for references to trumpets blasts we find they were used for a variety of purposes. Each purpose gives us a different reason to remember and highlights a unique aspect of the festival. Each remembrance is a key facet to this feast.

    One of the first things would be for us to remember our sins and repent. God wants the people who seek after him daily and are delighted to know the way that God wants them to live and the way that things should be. These people who are willing to approach Him for all the truth will not forsake anything that is of God. They have found delight, truth, righteousness, justification, and sanctification in all of God’s ordained ministries and services.

    It is our delight to seek God daily and know His ways, and do His ways as they are His righteousness and not turn our back on His Laws, for we know it is the sanctified way of approaching God.

    There is also the aspect of the coming of the Day of Atonement and the need for repentance. Feast of Trumpets marks the beginning of a ten day countdown to the Day of Atonement. Because the Day of Atonement is judgment day, the trumpet is sounded as a reminder that judgment is very near and the time for repentance is short.

    Our God is gracious and merciful, full of forgiveness, very slow to anger, even repents Himself of the
    justice the sinner deserves if they would just tear open their heart and start a new life in Him. Many have heard Joel 2:13 over and over again, but this time read it with the understanding the kingdom of heaven is truly at hand. We are at the door of eternity. We are soon to be at the end of this earth’s history. We are soon to see Yeshua come in the clouds of glory with the entire Heavenly Host with Him.

    Have you learned what Yeshua meant by learning the difference between mercy and sacrifice. Many have sacrificed their whole lives, living the cloistered life, the celibate life, and did all these works in the name of their religion but have never come to Yeshua, though they call out His name often. They sing His name, they pray His name, and they worship any image they have of what they think he looks like. They do not live the repentant life where in they are under the sanctifying influence of the Holy Spirit, and will follow Yeshua where ever He leads, even if it is away from what they thought was truth.

    The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
    Ezekiel 18:30
    Joel 2:13
    Matthew 3:2

    This is why studying the Bible to see if it is so, and praying for godly direction for the
    believer to walk in is so important in your relationship with God and men.

    Matthew 9:13 But go you and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not
    sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

    In Temple times, the priesthood sounded three trumpet blasts every morning to announce the opening of the Temple gates. So too, it is believed, that the first trumpet blasts of the Feast of Trumpets announce the opening of the gates of Heaven.

    This is traditional Feast of Trumpets image is fully employed in Revelation 4:1. After this I looked, and, behold a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.

    In this tradition, the gates of Heaven are opened to receive our prayers of repentance and remain open until the conclusion of the Day of Atonement. This will be our opportunity to be shown the things which must be hereafter, the soon to come to pass in the last hours of earth’s history. Those things that we need to know and understand to be able to stand in the last days. The Day of Atonement service is concluded with one long trumpet blast which announces that the gates of heaven have closed and judgement is complete.

    Therefore, the sound of the trumpet on Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance of the need to repent before judgement is made. Since the two witnesses are preaching repentance, it would not be surprising that they start at Jerusalem. Luke 24:47

    True repentance, deep thorough and sincere will bring a gift from God. It is one of the prized gifts that a believer can receive and it is the gift of the Holy Spirit, so necessary in its fulness in the last days of earth’s history. Keep on repenting until the Lord blesses you with this gift.

    It will be worth it, for it will such a refreshing experience after living in this sinful world, to have a taste of heaven, to experience Holiness, to eat of the Hidden manna, and there is no sin worth keeping in comparison to the blessings provided if you would just give up those favorite sins. Repent you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.

    Acts 3:19

    Trumpets were also used for Coronation Ceremonies. In the Scriptures, the trumpet is sounded at the coronation of a king. The trumpet announces the newly crowned King and proclaims his ascent to sovereignty. It is well illustrated in the coronation contest for David's throne. So it wouldn’t surprise me that this is when the Yeshua is crowned in Heaven as our King.

    Zadok the priest took the horn of oil from the sacred tent and anointed Solomon. Then they sounded the trumpet and all the people shouted, "Long live King Solomon!" Only the King of Kings can take The Book out of the Hand of God. As one of the elders told John the Revelator, the Lion out of the tribe of Judah, and the root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. He came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

    So the coronation of the King of the Universe, our Lord Yeshua could occur during the Feast of Trumpets or on the Day of Atonement when He is handed all dominions. The last message pure and swift riding and striking the heart with arrows of convictions dead on the mark by the one who has been given the crown.

    1 Kings 1:39
    Revelation 5:7
    Psalm 47:5; Psalm 98:6
    Revelation 6:2

    According to ancient Jewish tradition, the first day of the seventh month is the yearly anniversary of God's completion of creation. As such, it is also the New Year's Day of the Biblical Calendar. This New Year's Day aspect is reflected in the festival's common Hebrew name: Rosh Hashanah. The first day of the seventh month marks and remembers the anniversary of the completion of creation as well as the day that Yeshua becomes King over the new creation in us. Yeshua never denied that He was the King of the Jews or the Universe.

    Therefore, the sound of the trumpet on the Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance of the coronation of the King of the Universe, and it symbolizes our acceptance of God as King.

    As with any Kingdom, the law of the land is pronounced and proclaimed throughout the kingdom and to all the citizens. The day will come when God will reveal His Kingdom and its laws by which all nations on earth will be judged. It will be a hard day for those who have rebelled against God’s Law, but it will be a day of rejoicing for those who have believed in God and in His Kingdom coming.

    It was at Mount Sinai when God descended upon the mount in Exodus 19, that there was a heavenly trumpet sounding loud and long. The sound of the trumpet at Sinai was one of the miraculous signs that accompanied the giving of the Ten Commandments and the invitation to covenant with God.

    Matthew 27:11;
    Matthew 27:37;
    Hebrews 12:2;
    2 Peter 1:11
    Nehemiah 8:1-3,8,11-12

    Therefore, the sound of the trumpet on Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance of that day at Mount Sinai when Israel accepted her covenant with God. Later when Joshua came to the Promised Land, it was lead by the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant with seven trumpets blowing. Joshua 6:6

    Trumpets were used to give warnings. In ancient Israel, a watchman blew a trumpet to
    sound an alarm when danger was approaching; just the way civil defense sirens are used in
    our modern world for natural disasters like tornados approaching and invasions. When the
    Israelite heard the sound of the trumpet, he knew to take note of some imminent danger.
    Ezekiel employs this image by comparing the words of the prophets to the sound of the
    trumpet warning. These warning in the form of trumpets from God are not to be trifled
    with. It will be on your own head for not taking warning seriously.

    If a person heard the words of the prophet but did not take warning from them, it will be
    his own fault when the trouble comes. The sound of the trumpet on Feast of Trumpets is a
    remembrance of the need to take warning from the words of the prophets.

    Ezekiel 33:4

    The Feast of Trumpets is usually now observed on not one but on two consecutive days.
    The (Jewish) day begins at sundown and ends just before sundown the next day. Similarly,
    the months were calculated from the New Moon. The only Feast of Trumpets is the only
    feast that is set apart based the time of the new moon. Since Feast of Trumpets is the only
    appointed feast that begins on the first day of the month that makes it easy to know. As we
    are trying to narrow the field as to when is the soon return of Yeshua, it is important to
    remember what Yeshua said, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in
    heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”

    The next verse tells us He is speaking about the day of His coming. No one knew for sure
    whether the New Moon (the first day of the new month) would fall at the end of the 30th
    day or the 31st day. They had to wait until they saw the moon's crescent. We know that the
    Lord's coming will be signaled by a trumpet blast, the sound of a ram's horn. In the same
    way, the sound of the ram's horn ushers in the Feast of Trumpets. This is why this festival
    is celebrated for two days because of the uncertainty of the correct calendar day. Each new
    month was solemnly proclaimed to begin by the priests only after two witnesses testified to
    the appearance of the crescent of the moon.

    Matt 24:36
    Revelation 11:3

    The trumpet was blown as a battle cry during sieges and assaults. When the soldiers heard
    the trumpet, they knew to initiate the attack. The prophets invoke the battle cry of the
    trumpet as they repeatedly warn of the impending destruction of Jerusalem and the
    Temple. One of the most famous was the fall of the wall at Jericho and the seven trumpets

    There is to be another time that the trumpet will sound and it is coming upon us here in the
    near future. Disaster following disaster, until the whole world will lie in ruins, all human
    shelters will be gone. Wars and rumors of wars will keep it from ever being peace
    anywhere in the world. The sealing of destiny are illustrated and announced with
    trumpets. There were trumpets that were made out of the horn of a ram. The most
    famous ram in the Bible is the ram of Genesis 22 which was sacrificed in Isaac's place.
    These that were sealed under the fifth seal, and told to wait for their brethren, could easily
    be waiting for holy city tread under foot forty and two months. Remember we are in the
    middle of a war here and the dragon, old Satan himself knows his time is short and will go
    after those who believe and live what they believe. These people are not a organization but
    individuals who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Yeshua.

    Jeremiah 4:19-21;
    Revelation 6:4, 9
    Revelation 11:2
    Revelation 12:17

    Watchmen are people who stood on the wall and are guarding the truth, the people from
    danger. They speak up and it is called blowing a trumpet to sound an alarm when danger
    was approaching a city. When the city inhabitants heard the sound of the trumpet, they
    were frightened of what unknown danger might be about to befall them. Amos employs
    this image of the fear inspired by the trumpet blast when he says, “If a trumpet is blown in
    a city, will not the people tremble?”

    The danger which approaches on Feast of Trumpets is God himself as he readies the
    heavenly court for judgement. In Jewish observance, the intervening days between the
    Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement are called the "Awesome Days."

    On the Day of Atonement, there will be the coming of the Lord to His temple, your mind.
    The second coming, and the coming of the Lord to His temple, is distinct and separate
    events. The Day of Atonement is the coming to His temple and the Feast of Tabernacles is
    the second coming. The coming of the Lord to His temple, Malachi foretells as the
    judgment. Before the Lord comes to the temple, he will send “my messenger” to prepare
    the way just as John, the Baptist prepared the way with a call to repentance before Yeshua
    began His ministry.

    Amos 3:6

    Malachi with these words prophetically pointed out that this coming will be harder to
    abide by for some. It will be for the believers, the messenger of the covenant that they have
    waited for: “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me:
    and the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of
    the covenant, whom you delight in: behold, he shall come, said the LORD of hosts. But
    who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is
    like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of
    silver: and he shall purify, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the
    LORD an offering in righteousness. Then shall the offering be pleasant unto the LORD, as
    in the days of old, and as in former years. And I will come near to you to judgment; and I
    will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false
    swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the
    fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, said the LORD
    of hosts. For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed.
    Even from the days of your fathers you are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not
    kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, said the LORD of hosts.

    They are to be days of intense soul searching and repentance and even fear as we prepare
    to enter the presence of the judge of all creation. Amos reminds us to fear the judgement of
    God as we would tremble at the sound of the watchman's trumpet.

    Therefore, the sound of the trumpet on Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance to fear God. As Zephaniah says it will be a day of wrath, darkness, gloom and alarm.

    Because the Feast of Trumpets is the New Year's Day (that is the anniversary of the completion of creation) it is also towards the end of the heavenly fiscal year. As at the end of our calendar year, New Years Day is the day when the ledgers must be settled. On the Feast of Trumpets, the books of judgement are opened and all the deeds of each person are reviewed by the heavenly court for judgement. Ten days later, on Day of Atonement, everyone's name will be written and sealed for final judgement in either the Book of Life or Book of Dead.

    This imagery is reflected in Revelation where John sees the ultimate and final Day of Judgment which will be after the one thousand years. On the Day of Judgment, Day of Atonement, the righteous are written in the Book of Life. The wicked are written in the Book of Death. The intervening days between Feast of Trumpets and Day of Atonement are traditionally regarded as prime-time to sway the heavenly court's decision through serious prayer, repentance and acts of charity.

    Zephaniah 1:14-16
    Revelation 7:1
    Revelation 20:15
    Revelation 7:14

    Therefore, the sound of the trumpet on the Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance of Judgement at the hands of heaven. One of the most famous trumpet reference out of all the prophets is “And it will be on that day when a great trumpet will be blown, the perishing in the land will come, and they will worship before the LORD on the Holy Mountain in Jerusalem.”

    This verse is a prophecy of the great Ingathering from all over. This Ingathering is to commence with the believers gathering together for the anticipated return of Christ. “But you are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the first born, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.”

    Because on the Day of Atonement is the day when sins are blotted out of the Books of Life. By this time, hopefully you are the temple of God through which the Holy Spirit operates and the image of God is once again indwelling in humans. It will be the time of restitution of all things back to God promised since the world began Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

    Isaiah 27:13.
    Heb 12:22-23;
    Acts 3:19;
    Eph 2:22 357
    Acts 3:21

    We can see that this gathering to the temple of God will be the most glorious experience for the believers, than that which has ever been experienced before. The Day of Atonement is the 21st day of the seventh month of God’s calendar and as God said “don’t worry about it….., The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, said the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, said the LORD of hosts.”

    He was speaking of Solomon’s Temple where there was a manifest presence of God in the former house. He is also speaking of the latter house being more glorious. We are to be the latter house which His Holy Spirit works at perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. It is for the maturing of the saints. Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

    Sound the great trumpet for our freedom; lift up a banner to gather us together from the four corners of the earth. Blessed are you, LORD, who gathers in the exiled of his people. The banner under which we are all to gather is the God given banner. So let us be patient waiting for the precious fruit of the Holy Spirit working in us. Let us be patient until we receive the early and latter rain.363 It is in our overcoming that we gain.

    Therefore, the sound of the trumpet on Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance of the
    ultimate ingathering in the seventh month of God’s calendar.

    Remember Ephesians chapter 4 where it says this will not happen till we come together as a
    perfect man. Who do you suppose that one man is in type? They came together in type in
    the seventh month as one man and they began to build. Seventh month is when the Feast of
    Trumpets begins to sound. Another reason given for the blowing of the trumpet on the
    Feast of Trumpets is for to remember the resurrection of the dead. Understand the words
    of Isaiah 18:3 to be a prophecy directed to the dead. "As a banner is lifted on the
    mountains, you will see, and as a trumpet is sounded, you will hear." This was understood
    to mean that when the final trumpet will be blown, the dead would rise and see and hear
    again. One of the soon to come to pass events that we need to remember. The coming of
    Yeshua includes a great trumpet blast which wakes up those sleeping in the dust.

    Ezra 3:1
    1Cor 15:52

    In his letter to the believers at Colossians, Paul states that all of the Biblical Festivals are
    "shadows of things to come, the substance of Christ." From the above list, it is obvious
    that the fall feasts are about the things to come. The list of remembrances reads like a
    synopsis of Jewish and Christian apocalyptic expectations in their proper order. The
    warning of impending judgment, the call to repentance, the fear of the Day of the LORD,
    the Ingathering of Israel, the rebuilding of the Temple, the final judgment, the resurrection
    of the dead and the coronation of the King are all familiar prophetic themes which both
    Jewish and Christian communities associate with the coming of Christ. It is clear that the
    Festival is ripe with end-times implications.

    In view of Paul's statement that the festivals are "shadows of things to come," and in view
    of the ways in which the Spring Festivals of Unleavened Bread and Pentecost received a
    Messianic fulfillment within the events of the first coming of the Christ, Yeshua, one can
    hardly be surprised to find that the Fall Festivals speak to Christ's return. Yeshua himself
    invokes Feast of Trumpets imagery when he says, “They will see the Son of Man coming on
    the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a
    great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of
    the sky to the other.”

    I lean more towards the seventh trumpet sounding long and hard throughout the last days
    from the Feast of Trumpets, through the Day of Atonement, and on through the Feast of
    Tabernacles right up to the eighth day.

    Colossians 2:16,17
    Matthew 24:30,

    The mystery of God as declared by the Prophets will be finished at the seventh trumpet. “And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.”

    The Feast of Trumpets is a remembrance of things yet to come. Revelation trumpets are a foretaste of the things to come in full blast when there is no more repentence. It is a memorial of things that have not happened yet. Only with God can something be remembered before it has occurred! The Feast of Trumpets remembers the future work of Christ. Perhaps it is the obscurity of the future which accounts for the Bible's silence regarding the festival's meaning. The Feast of Trumpets's final fulfillments is still shrouded in the future. If so, then the sound of the trumpet on Feast of Trumpets reminds us to listen for the sound of the trumpet in Revelation.

    I studied the trumpets because

    1. It is a new year, a new event, a new understanding, a new message, and a new beginning.

    2. Revelation talks about the seven trumpets as events that are to shake people of this
    world up and try getting them to see differently enough to understand the need to repent.

    3. The Feast of Trumpets is designed for a purpose...preparing the people for the Day of

    So many people are spiritually asleep. Awake sleeper. “Watch you therefore: for you know
    not when the master of the house cometh, at even or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or
    in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping, and what I day unto you I say
    unto all, watch.”

    So what are we to wake up for “when you shall see these things come to pass, know that it
    is nigh, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you that, this generation shall not pass, till all
    these thing be done. What are we to understand? When you shall see the abomination of
    Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not..."

    There was two stories that Yeshua told, one regarding marriage, and one about the king
    returning to His kingdom. It is in these parables that we are to see Yeshua as the
    Bridegroom and soon to be wed and the other as the crowned King returning to claim
    what is His.

    Mark 13:35,14,28,36
    Matt 22:2-14

    Let us go over the Ten Virgins Parable “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto
    ten virgins which took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”

    Now the difference in the two groups is that one group had kept their lamps full, in
    preparation for this event, the others had not. Compare this parable with the one about the
    wedding guest that was not dressed and see the similarity there.

    Oil in the Word is used in a variety of ways but the most Holy was in the Temple is where
    the golden candlestick stood. We can see in heaven in Revelation to fullness of the meaning
    of the lamp stand and that it is the Holy Spirit (or seven-fold spirit) of God. The oil in the
    bridesmaids lamps is representative of this seven-fold spirit whom we must ask daily to fill
    us so that we may walk with him in truth and in the right path, so that we will not be the
    subject to the verdict "Depart from me, I never knew you" Amen..

    Oh this is getting exciting. There are seven messages from God represented by the seven
    churches and seven spirits which is the perfect number. We must need to walk in
    spiritual truth is a daily growth in knowledge, acceptance, and birth of a new lifestyle
    based upon that new wisdom from God.

    Let the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon you, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. Do you not know that all things are ready for God’s people to come unto the marriage? “But they made light of it and went their ways"

    How many people today make light of the Day of Atonement and not see the wedding. Even when the feast of trumpets should have woken them up to the event? So it is very important to be ready Rev 3:20 "and you yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately." Why would they open unto him immediately? I will tell you why. It is because they were expecting him, looking forward to this moment, and knew what to expect when he arrives.

    As Yeshua said “Blessed are those servants, whom the Lord when he cometh shall find watching" verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants."

    This is a special time when the Lord is dishing out meat, the big juicy stuff that would take mature believers to swallow.

    We have yet to see "the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand) then let them that are in Judaea flee to the mountains."

    Daniel, himself, wanted to know but the Lord told him that the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

    John the Revelator did see that time when the book is opened and it was sweet as honey and as soon as it was eaten bitter to the belly.

    This occurs in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets. When the high priest stood before God on the Day of Atonement, he was said to be "face to face" with God. Because of this, the Day of Atonement became known by the phrase "face to face." "Face to face" is a terminology used in: “For we know in part; and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass,
    darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am
    known .”

    There was another time when there was a “face to face” encounter. Joshua had entered into the Promise Land, but they hadn’t taken any of it yet. Yeshua is face to face, talking with Joshua as the Captain of the Host.

    Jericho is going to fall in just a few hours. Joshua with ill-trained troops was about to embark on an impossible task of destroying this double wall fortified city, Jericho then but for us it is the spiritual Babylon that is about to fall.384 Early in the morning, Joshua gets up early to see what the Lord has in store for them, and to discuss with the Lord how this all will come to pass. He sees this man with a sword drawn all the way out in a vision.

    This is a picture of Yeshua with the Word of God, sword fully drawn and plain for all to see. Not half way out but all the way out and totally revealed. It will be cutting, dividing the truth from the dross. Joshua sees it all and it gives Joshua the confidence to go and take the city. Seeing all of the Word of God in its true light will give you all the confidence you need to go and take the city promised. It is time for the whole book to be seen in its true light of Yeshua.

    At this point, the devil is bound up. He can’t come in or go out. The walls of lies come down, the truth is revealed, and there is no one to stop it this time. There is no one to twist it around and confuse the matter. With the marching around Jericho with the trumpets blaring and being lead by the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant. Joshua is a type of Yeshua. They walked six days around this fortified city and they blew the trumpets.

    There is something else very interesting about this story. Joshua, as a type of Yeshua, has
    not told His believers why until the seventh day. He has known for all this time but it was
    not until the morning of the seventh day that He tells them. We are approaching the
    morning of the seventh day?

    Let’s read what he said. “And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into yours
    hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. And you shall compass
    the city, all you men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt you do six days
    you will go around the city and it says, and seven priests shall bear before the ark seven
    trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day you shall compass the city seven times, and
    the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a
    long blast with the ram's horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people
    shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people
    shall ascend up every man straight before him.

    Notice that it is one shout, a great shout. Everybody will shout together. This is when the
    people shall ascend up with Him. There is a taking of the land next which will be when we
    return with Yeshua descending down in the City of God. There is a rising up in spirit that
    must take place before you can take the land. Joshua knew this but the people didn’t know
    it and yet seven times they encompass the city.

    That is the light of the dawning of the seventh day and the end of the sixth. The end of the
    sixth day is now. At the end of the sixth day, we are going to do more in one day than all of the six thousands years before. We are going to be totally involved in the finished work in one day.

    As it was in the days of Joshua many will not know it till the end of the sixth day and the beginning of the seventh what was about to happen. The world has been walking around for six thousand years wondering what believers are doing this for. But, praise God, at the dawning of the seventh day, Yeshua our Joshua stands up and says, "Shout; for the Lord has given you the city!"

    You may have heard this before but, this clear sounding trumpet blows and you will hear it from your Heavenly Father. You are now going to know exactly how defeated the devil is and how you will rise up and Jericho will fall all in one day. When is that day? In Revelation 4, John never left the earth but the Bible said he heard a truth and it was a voice speaking to him. You know what that voice said? “Come up hither.” He never left the earth. He left in spirit and came up and went higher until he saw a throne and one seated on that throne. That is the revelation we must see. We must see Yeshua on the throne high
    and lifted up. It has to do with coming into the marriage, Day of Atonement.

    And five of them were wise, and five were foolish, they that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

    Lamps need constant care to keep burning, the filling up with oil is to me like digging for gems of wisdom and knowledge in the word of God, there is always more that is needed, always more that the Lord is showing me, and always more that will come to light. We are to be the lamps of which the Holy Spirit shines through. This constant growth is spiritual enriching and a blessing for all circumstances. “And it will come to pass, when the priests come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD.” You are to be the part of this priesthood, coming out from the greatest spiritual experience God is ever going to give His children on earth. When did the glory come? The glory is the Lord coming suddenly to His Temple in the seventh month.

    The Day of Atonement is in the seventh month, this is when the High Priest is to minister in the most Holy Place “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, behold the bridegroom ometh; go out to meet him.” We know that the time will come when the shockers of shockers will wake up the spiritual world into a reality of the prophecies are real again. The "Abomination of Desolation" most have no clue what that is. And we really do need to know. It needs to be studied more in depth now more than ever.

    In Genesis the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. The name "Ararat" means "the curse is reversed". In each of these examples, you can see the Lord working according to His appointed time, and in these cases it is always in the seventh month. If we are wise we would realize that it is going to happen again right during the time of no buy or sell.

    Those that are prepared for the day when it happens will recognize what they are to do about it. Those that are not prepared, are scrabbling to find out, they are even asking those that they refused to listen to before to tell them, but time has run out. It is interesting that they are told to go buy from them that sell at this time. Does this not place it at the time when you can not go out and buy or sell unless you have the mark? As scripture says “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. “I can see that at the same time, another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea to hurt not until we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads." This will be the time when "there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribe of Israel" and "a great multitude that no man can number" clothed with white robes."

    Afterwards came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said; “verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor hour wherein the son of man cometh.”

    So what where does God come in preparing His people but to their mind. "Rise up and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein." All those outside in the outer court are treading on the Holy City and the two witnesses are now upon the scene giving them a taste of the plaques to see if there is any who will yet repent.

    There is a time when there is a coming of the Lord to His Temple is you and your mind. There is only one time that the High Priest goes into the most holy. So be silent before God, for the day will come when He will dwell in your mind in all His awesome glory.

    Silence was kept by the congregation on Day of Atonement during to time when the High Priest was in the most holy. Here we see a reference to silence during the time when God is raised up in the Most Holy Place to wed/choose/receive the inheritance/bride/believers that which is perfect in Christ. This time of silence is the very time when the New/Eternal Covenant is ratified and we wait until King Yeshua emerges to claim His inheritance.

    The reason we are most familiar with it is that it is on this day that Divine Justice is soon to be meted out to all individuals and to all nations. It is the date on which the cases of all of G-d's creatures come up before the Heavenly Court for a ten-day "trial" beginning on Feast of Trumpets, which is the first day of the Ten Days of Repentance, and climaxing on the Tenth of Tishrei with the Day of Atonement, Day of Atonement, when the fate of each one is sealed. These ten days could be like the test that Daniel experienced as he continued to live as God wanted in the face of Babylon ways.

    Day of Atonement, the Sabbath of Sabbaths, is observed the tenth day of the Hebrew month of Tishri, or as we understand it, somewhere between September and early October in the secular calendar. The Holy of Holies was never entered into except for this one day out of the entire year. In the Holy of Holies was the Ark of the Covenant and enthroned between the Cherubim on the Ark was the manifest presence of God. God was in that room! Somehow the Almighty, Infinite God, the King of Universe himself had taken up residence inside that room. To enter was to literally be in the presence of God. Once a year, on the holiest day of the year, the holiest man in the world had to enter the holiest place in the world. He had to enter into the presence of the Holy, Holy, Holy, and Lord of Hosts. He had to enter in order to make atonement for Israel, for the Holy of Holies, for the Tabernacle and for the altar. Because these things were continually in the presence of God, they needed to be atoned for.

    I wonder if an eldest first born male going up to visit with honor 3 times a yr would have found ten days each time?

    Would they of recognized the lesser light on the 4th day..

    Or would they betray the day star as one of 12 had with silver prices. While yhdh had ignored The Holy Torah and east gate. Did they look east while sitting for six days and become arrogant with a lack of patience.
    With 3s a 4s I've noticed a current leading to the 5th day.
    Where 2 or 3 minyans(congregations) are gathered..
