The Feast of Pentecost

The Feast of Trumpets

Welcome to the Feast of Trumpets Focus Study! In this Focus Study, we will explore the historical observance and significance of this Holy Day. The Feast of Trumpets, one of God’s seven annual Holy Days, pictures a time of catastrophic and amazing events prophesied to happen at the end of the age. Students will take this opportunity to learn about the symbolism and usage of trumpets in the Bible, the meaning of each of the trumpet blasts in Revelation, and the subsequent events foretold to take place. At the seventh and final trumpet blast, Jesus Christ will return to the earth, overthrow Satan as ruler, and claim the title and role as the King of kings over all nations. With final the trumpet sound the announcement will be made, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever” (Revelation 11:15). 

 This Focus Study will serve as a guide for students who would like to engage in an in-depth study on the Feast of Trumpets. The seven final trumpet blasts signify a time when God will establish the reign of Jesus Christ as supreme ruler over the earth. His resurrected saints will help govern and transform a devastated world, which will require much-needed healing and guidance, by teaching all nations the true way to peace through God’s perfect law of liberty. The Feast of trumpets reminds us to look forward to the sound of the last trump when the saints will be raised incorruptible and Satan will be dethroned, in preparation for the millennial reign of Christ, and the establishment of the Kingdom of God.

The Biblical Passover

The death of Jesus of Nazareth, the Lamb of God, occurred in the afternoon of the daylight portion of Wednesday, Nisan 14th. Christ kept the Passover with His disciples on the evening before, as He had commanded the Israelites approximately 1,500 years earlier. On Wednesday morning, a contingent of Roman soldiers escorted Jesus to Golgotha where they crucified Him about 9:00 a.m., on a hillock just opposite Jerusalem. He died on the cross about 3:00 p.m., bleeding to death after being pierced in the side by a soldier’s spear. As Christ breathed His last breath, across the valley, in the temple, the high priest was sacrificing Passover lambs, according to the custom of many, though not all, of the Jews during Christ’s time. As Wednesday, Passover day, the 14th of Nisan, drew to a close, this pivotal event set the stage for the next exciting step in God’s plan for mankind.
