Tonight at dark, the Feast of Trumpets begins. It’s the official beginning of the new year, according to the Word of God. It’s the trumpet call, or 100 blasts of the Shofar, and represents a time for each one of us to repent, seek forgiveness from those we’ve wronged, and return items we’ve borrowed, etc.
Those who’ve accepted Jesus as their Savior are Israel; we’ve been adopted in, but some are natural branches who are of Jewish descent. We are no longer Gentiles but sons and daughters of the Most High God.
And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the LORD.” Leviticus 23:23-25
I find it very interesting that this year it begins on Labor Day, a day when many people have the day off. I pray that during this year's high holiday festivals, the Lord makes good on his promises to hold to account the enemy who has tormented us for thousands of years. Will this year be the day of reckoning? Will Jesus return for the harvest? Only God knows, but I pray it’s during this season. A girl can dream, but God can fulfill that dream. Make this evening a solemn event, and follow through with the requirements of the upcoming feast.
