In the next 30 days the world will see the greatest convergence of God’s Appointed Times, His High Holy Feasts the world has seen yet. Why? Twenty days from now on September 13 is the End of the last month of the Biblical Calendar for this Biblical year 5775, Elul 29. The next day in the blink of an eye is Rosh Hashanah, The Head of the Year. This is the day when God takes the record of every one living and sees what good they have done for the previous year. Have they furthured the Kingdom of God or have they been a detriment. Are they hot for Jesus or lookwarm. Rabbi’s have taught this is the time when God determines whether you will die or live in the New Year. Jewish people are taught to make things right in every area of their lives. The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is the time of turning and repenting.
Never before has this time been seen in the history of man. This Appointed time is the end of Shemitah Year at Rosh Hashannah (the blowing of Trumpets), The fourth of the four blood moons starting last year at the Feasts of Passover and Feast of Tabernacles, with the last one ending during this Feast of Tabernacles this year. The Year of Jubilee this September and Yom Kippur. Forty days before Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) Israel would blow the rams horn preparing all of the people for this day. Rosh Hashanah means “rams horn” or the turning in repentance. Then Yom Kippur is the culmination of the sheding of blood in the Holy Holies. In ancient times once you heard the rams horn, it was time to focus on salvation. If you heard it, then you were to blow it so your neighbor could hear it. It would be blown from household to household so that all of Israel would know the time and season and no one miss out.
Not only is this the time turning away from the old in repentance, but it also the time when God determines the blessings you will walk in the the new year. Debbie and I have been blowing our rams horn. Listen to what Numbers 10: 9-10 says, ““When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the LORD your God, and you will be saved from your enemies. 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.”
Did you get that? When you blow your trumpet you will be remembered by God and He will save you from your enemies. And you shall be a memorial before the Lord. Does blowing a rams horn have any supernatural significance in your life? Well, does water baptism have any? Or the laying on of hands for healing? The answer is yes, Becasue God said so. Three times a year God ask us to remember Him so He can bless us. Let me ask a simple question, is God available to us 24/7? Yes He is. But just like the Sun always shines 365 days a year. Here in Texas it is 110 degrees but in January it will be 30 or 40 degrees. Same Sun still shining. So with God he is always available to us, but three times a year He is nearest to bless His covenant with those who have an ear and hear what He is saying. I am sad to say that 99% of the church does not understand the season and times we are drawing near to. Only 1% understand that this Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur is the Mother or Father of all times for those who have and ear and hear what the Spirit is saying.
In Jerusalem during Yom Kippur the High Priest would sprinkle the blood and water on the Altar. Blood represented redemption and forgivness and the water represented Favor and Blessings. All of Israel would come to Jerusalem to bring their offering at this Feast and to see if their sins were forgiven and they could walk in favor and blessings another year. Because the multitude of crowds was so great people could not see this ceremony. So when the High Priest was finished sprinkling the blood and water, he would raise his hands with palms facing the crowd and yell, “It is Finished.” Then like a dominoe effect people would turn around and yell down the line of the crowd, “It is Finished” until all had heard. At the Cross when Jesus hung on the tree, it was actually Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement the very second and minute this ceremony was taking place. The Greek new testament actually translated His last words wrong. In Aramaric Jesus Actually said, not “It is Finished”, but “It has Fortified.” What he was saying to the world. “Father you have FORTIFIED Me for this time so that Your people can walk in salvation, favor and blessing. Go BLOW YOUR TRUMPET!
