– A Double Holiday
At sundown the first of the fall holy days begins. Because it begins the month on the Hebrew calendar it is always a double feast day.
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.
This is the only one of the Lord’s holy days that is ALWAYS celebrated on the “beginning of the month (also called: Rosh Hodesh or New Moon.) For that reason trumpets (not shofars) are blown.
Numbers 10:2, 10
“Make two silver trumpets for yourself; you shall make them of hammered work; you shall use them for calling the congregation and for directing the movement of the camps…. Also in the day of your gladness, in your appointed feasts, and at the beginning of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; and they shall be a memorial for you before your God: I am the Lord your God.”
The silver trumpets were used to:
- Call the assembly
- Advance to war
- Sound a warning
- To coronate the king
PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM AND PRAY ISRAEL WAKES UP TO THE URGENT SOUND OF THE TRUMPET
