Feast of Trumpets 2019 – Jesus Returns to the Earth

Feast of Trumpets Jesus Returns to the Earth

Feast of Trumpets – Jesus Returns to the Earth                    September 30, 2019

We are here to celebrate a few things today:

  • One of war and
  • The return of Jesus to the earth, to be King and Priest
  • A Time of Judgment and Justice
  • Our change to Spirit Bodies

This day is very exciting for us, the Saints and Elect. We will be changed to Spirit Beings, with a new body and rule with and under our Lord Jesus.

On this day when Lord Jesus returns to take complete control of the earth and start the 1000 rule, the Millennium.  He will then establish the Kingdom of God forever.

First month of the year, Trumpets takes place on the first day of Tishri,

  • which was the seventh month on the God’s religious calendar;
  • but the first month on the civil calendar.

A different name on this day has come to be known in modern times as Rosh Hashanah, which means “Head of the year” is the Jewish New Year.


The biblical Judaism by name for this holiday is Yom Teruah, literally “day of shouting or blasting” and in Christianity is called the Feast of Trumpets.

It is one of the Jewish High Holy Days mention by Leviticus 23:23. 

Interesting, the timing of this feast;  Feast of Trumpets is the only feast that occurs on the first day of the month, at the new Moon, when the moon is dark and the shape is that of a thin crescent.   Pending doom for evil.

All the other Feast Days occur later in their respective months when the moon is shining brightly.

What does the Scriptures tells us about the Feast of Trumpets?

Leviticus 23:23-24 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, (24) “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.

Notice, the word, trumpets is plural and not singular

This is where we find the name of this feast day. It is from this ceremony that the Feast of Trumpets draws its name.

There is a great deal of symbolic meaning tied in with the blowing of these trumpets, especially with regard to the end time in which we’re living.

We read before where trumpets were blown to:

  1. Announce God’s solemn feasts, as well as
  2. Call God’s people to assemble, as an
  3. Alarm of invading armies and
  4. Impending warfare.

The bottom line, Feast of Trumpets pictures this time of climactic world war and the establishment of the Government of Lord Jesus upon this earth!

The tribulation will be ongoing, why is it cut short? 

Matthew 24:21-22 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. (22) And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Just short of the 6000 years allotted to Satan, rest of the time later.

This last minute intervention by Jesus when He returns in the power and glory of His Kingdom with the final trumpet announcing God’s war with the earth to end all wars; will be sounded.

Lord Jesus will send forth His angels 

Matthew 24:31 And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.


Paul says who will be coming with Lord Jesus

1 Thessalonians 3:13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all His holy ones.

It would seem reasonable that if Lord Jesus will be returning in His glory,   and We will be with Him and be like Him in the clouds, 

*Paul said in Colossians: we also will appear with him in glory.  When Christ, who is your life, appears, and then you also will appear with him in glory. Colossians 3:4

So, when Lord Jesus deals with human beings, He clothes Himself with the clouds, allowing mankind to continue existing.

Zechariah 14:12 This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths. {rot – consumed away}

Most prophecy buffs says this will be a nuclear war in the future.  But what if Jesus removes the cloud from Himself to destroy those who decided to fight against Jerusalem, to see His face.  The Glory of God. Would this statement explain what happens.  Just wondering.  Think about Moses example.

Prophecy says time before Lord Jesus returns, will be a dark day that will be upon the earth.  remember, Dark Moon of the 1st day of the month.

Amos 5:20  Is not the day of the LORD darkness, and not light? Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it?

*Joel also said: The sun shall be turned into darkness, Before the coming of day of the LORD.  Joel 2:31 NKJV The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.

Like a candle in a dark room.

Is this why all will see Jesus return to the earth? When Jesus spoke to His disciples of the day of His return He said that His sign will appear in the sky, on the Clouds of HeavenDark day, light shines out to all.

Matthew 24:30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

*In Matthew, Luke, Revelation and Mark listed: see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. “At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.  Mark 13:26

Then what happens?

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. (17) Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:50-52 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. (51) Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed; (52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

We will be change from physical human flesh to spiritual immortal life.

What is going to happen to us?

Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests {and kings – Rev 1:6} of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

This first resurrection occurs at the Last Trumpet.

I believe most individuals desire to live forever.  And yet, without God, that’s not going to happen. We are all going to die at least once.

But God is going to resurrect those people who are willing to follow Him to an eternal life. And for those who, in this lifetime, have lived and died with God, that resurrection comes when Christ returns

What happens now, a dramatic battle between good and evil after Jesus returns to Earth.  This is the time of the 2nd Coming when Jesus will return to the earth to fulfill His promises and fulfill the prophecies made about Him.

Revelation 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.

The 2nd Coming of Christ is our hope and confidence that God is in control of all things and is faithful to His Word and His promises

*Paul said in Titus: looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ: looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, Titus 2:13

The important of the 2nd Coming is because the world needs a Righteous King to put to end of the evil that is on the earth.  Day of justice for all of the innocent blood that has been spilled on the earth Do we really believe in the 2nd Coming?

2 Thessalonians 2:1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,

We know the Scriptures tell us that no one knows when Jesus will return.

  • This verse refers to Jesus bringing judgment against evil in the world after he returns to Earth.
  • The white horse that Jesus rides symbolically depicts the holy and pure power that Jesus has to overcome evil with good. 

Revelation 19:12-14 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. (13) He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. (14) And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.

Saints dressed in white linen that symbolizes holiness will fight against this evil and will emerge victorious from the battle.

Revelation 19:15-16 (15) Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (16) And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

This expresses Lord Jesus ultimate authority

Now an angel standing in the sun makes an announcement:

Revelation 19:17-18 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, (18) that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”

Now comes the battle that occurs between Lord Jesus and His Holy Forces and the Antichrist and his evil forces, resulting in the destruction of evil and victory for good.  Yes, God (Jesus} wins in the end.

Revelation 19:19-21  And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. (20) Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.

These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. (21) And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

Jude 1:14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,    {Saints and Angels} 

Now the Millennium starts the 1000 years rule of Jesus on the earth, Satan is locked up, we will then start to rule under Jesus to enforce the Kingdom of God on the earth.  This is what is covered in the Feast of Tabernacles.

Ever wonder why a horse.  Read

Job 39:19-24  “Have you given the horse strength? Have you clothed his neck with thunder? (20) Can you frighten him like a locust? His majestic snorting strikes terror. (21) He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He gallops into the clash of arms. (22) He mocks at fear, and is not frightened; Nor does he turn back from the sword. (23) The quiver rattles against him, The glittering spear and javelin. (24) He devours the distance with fierceness and rage; Nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded.

God’s Festival of Trumpets is both a sad day and a time of rejoicing.

On the one hand, it pictures terrifying world events ending in warfare that could destroy all life on earth.

But, on the other hand, to those firstfruits who have voluntarily placed themselves under the government of God in God’s Church now, this is also a day of great rejoicing.

At the sound of the seventh trumpet, when Jesus Christ returns, the saints – the first-fruits of God’s plan – will be born into the Family of God! God will then have reaped the smaller spiritual harvest of human beings into His Family.

They will then begin to help Christ rule the earth and reap the much greater spiritual harvest during and after the Millennium.

Finally, Again, as I said at the first, The Feast of Trumpets represents the return of Jesus Christ to the earth as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and to establish the Kingdom of God forever and we will be with Lord Jesus when He returns.

It is a time of rejoicing foe us without ceasing.
