Clinton Gathering 2010 The Fall Feasts Trumpets Atonement Tabernacles
The Feast of Trumpets Num 29: 1-6; Lev 23:23-25
Feasts of Trumpets First day of the seventh month (Tisri) denoted by the appearance of the new moon. Duration=1 day. Designated a sabbath. A “holy convocation”.
Feasts of Trumpets “…no servile work” “Memorial” blowing of the trumpets. Two Shofar Horns. Additional Burnt Offering and Sin Offering.
Bro. Thomas, Eureka, vol 2, pg. 291 • These new heavens will “declare the glory of Ail; and their firmament, or aerial, His handiwork. Day unto day will utter speech; and night unto night shall show knowledge: and there will be no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their rule will go out through all the earth, and Their words to the end of the world…”
Three Unique Aspects It was declared a Sabbath, a holy convocation It required burnt and sin offerings in addition to the monthly and daily offerings The additional burnt offerings caused additional blowing of trumpets
“And ye shall be remembered…” The trumpets had to be blown over the Burnt offering and the Peace offering for a specific purpose-“that they may be to you for a memorial before your God”. “For a memorial…” The phrase virtually interprets itself, but there is no doubt whatsoever as to its meaning when we note the contents of the previous verse. There we find the command to the priests to blow an alarm with the trumpets “if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you”, with the added promise, “and ye shall be remembered before the Lord your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies”. The juxtaposition of the two ordinances is most enlightening: in each case an appeal was made to God to be mindful of His people, in the one because of their struggle against a literal oppressor, in the other because of their strife with a more sinister foe still, namely, Sin-the literal being once again the sign and symbol of the spiritual. In both cases Israel called upon God to save them, as His children, from the common enemy (Num 10:9-10). This they had to do through the priests, because the latter so naturally served as an objective representation of the whole Priestly People.” (Law and Grace, Barling)
Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound; they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance. In thy name shall they rejoice all the day; and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted. For thou art the glory of their strength; and in thy favor our horn shall be exalted (Psalm 89:15-17).
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth; make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise, sing unto the Lord with the harp; with the harp and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King (Psalm 98:4-6).
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things. But they have not all obeyed the Gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. But I say, have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world (Romans 10:15-18).
The Gathering of the Saints “We beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him” (2 Thess 2:1). He thus taught that there will be a gathering of saints at the coming of the Lord “Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice” (Psa 50:5).
The Leviticus Expositor, HPM “…the celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the head of the New Year, set forth in the Law, was not to the Hebrews a time of ribald revelry as it is to the Gentiles, but a celebration of deepest, most solemn, religious import. The solemnity with which it was viewed may be gauged with the solemnity with which believers anticipate the coming of the Lord.”
Robert Roberts “…the dead assembled for judgment are men and women in the flesh recovered from the grave, reproduced, and made to “stand again” (anastasis) in the presence of their Lord and Judge, to have it determined whether they are worthy of receiving the “hidden manna” of eternal life, for which they are all candidates, or deserving of reconsignment to corruption and death, under the special solemn circumstance of rejection by him who is “altogether lovely”…
“Adonai will give the word; those who bear the tidings are a great host.” (Psa 68:11)
DIVISION OF THE TIME PERIOD FROM CHRIST’S RETURN TO THE MILLENNIUM * Christ returns in a Jubilee year (see Heb. 11:3; Lev. 25:8–11; Isa. 61:1–3). * The Millennium commences—50 years later (Ezek. 40:1; cp. Lev. 25:8–11). * This period divided into: 10 years’ personal and national judgment culminating at Armageddon. (Based on the ten days from the sounding of the trumpet on the 1st of the 7th month to the Day of Atonement—See Lev. 23:23–32; 1 Thess. 4:16; Rev. 15:8). 40 Years’ restoration and rebuilding of Israel (Mic. 7:15–20). This period divided into the Conversion of Judah (Zech. 12:7–14), and the ultimatum to the nations (Psa. 2:10–12; Isa. 14:32; Rev. 10:11; 14:7–10); a suggested period of 10 years. Thirty years subjection of Catholic countries (Rev. 14:8–10; 17:12–14) and restoration of all the tribes. THE MILLENNIUM comprises one thousand years of peace (Rev. 20:6). It will commence when all nations have been brought into subjection to Christ, and Israel has been completely restored. The Temple in Jerusalem will then be opened for worship for the first time (Ezekiel 43).
