Feast Of Trumpets


    “Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.  Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

Leviticus 23:24, 25         

     And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.”

Numbers 29:1  

     The feast of trumpets started ten days before the Day of Atonement.  This was when the people were alerted, and it was kept before their mind that the Day of Judgment was at hand.  

     William Miller preached the soon coming of Jesus for ten years before the day of Atonement on October 22, 1844, sounding the trumpet of warning of the coming judgment, when Jesus went from the Holy Place to the Most Holy Place of the sanctuary. This was after the cross.  

     Just before Jesus second coming, He will step out of the sanctuary on the Day of Atonement.  The world will have been ALARMED IN TRUMPET TONES, with the Loud Cry Message, THAT THE END IS UPON US.  We are now looking for this final moment, we are yet in this world. 

     “At the time of the feast of trumpets, when many were gathered at the holy city, the people assembled in the street that was before the water gate; "and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded to Israel. And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month. And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday. . . . And the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law."
