A Golden Trumpet

The view that the Rapture will occur at the mid-point of the Tribulation is based upon 1 Corinthians 15:52 which states that the Rapture will occur at the blowing of “the last trumpet.” This Mid-Tribulation Rapture view then declares this trumpet to be the last of the seven trumpets in Revelation 11 that is blown at the mid-point of the Tribulation. Why of the 114 references to trumpets in the Scripture these two are identified as one and the same only defies sound Scriptural research! The context clearly shows the last trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15 is blown for believers whereas the seven trumpets (of judgments) of Revelation 8, 9 and 11 are sounded for unbelievers. The Revelation trumpets therefore can have no relevance for the Church!  There are many trumpets mentioned in the bible.

The Golden Trumpet! 

As the word ‘trumpet’  is mentioned as the Hebrew word “Shofar” 48 times in the Old Testament. There is one time that it is not translated to “Shofar” but is translated as “jovial”! 13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet sounded long, they shall come up to the mount. (Exodus 19:13)   The Golden trumpet: The very first time the word “trumpets” appears in the Scripture! It is not “Shofar” but “jovial”! Shofar is the Rams-horn or the antelope! Silver trumpets are trumpets too. Jovial is the same Hebrew word for: “Jubilee”! The word jovial alludes to the ‘silver trumpets’, On the year of jubilee they blown ‘silver trumpets’! The prophetic picture of the ‘Rapture’ is Exodus 19. Yahweh came down on the mountain Sinai – Moses went up! There are trumpets involved in the “Rapture”! Exodus 19 is a foreshadow or picture  of the ‘rapture’ or ‘the great assembly’! When the trumpets sounds long, they shall come to the mount Sinai! In Moses’ time it was mount Sinai, now it is heavenly Mount Zion! But ye are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the Heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, (Hebrews 12:22)

By blowing one set of trumpets and its wakes the people up and get them lined up. By blowing the ‘next’ trumpet and they start marching. If Apostle Paul said the dead will rise up by the last trumpet, then also there have to be a first!  One trumpet will “wake” you up and when the next one would sound you are “going” up! You are going to meet the Lord in the air! You can find every clue of the future hidden find in the Old Testament!

The general assembly of the…

The general assembly of the Church of the First fruits. You shall make your two silver trumpets for the calling of the assembly. First meaning is the ‘camp’ of Israel, second meaning, the trumpets are going to sound to gather an assembly on the Mount of God; Mount Zion. Specific with the Trump of God: In the Scriptures there are places when the trumpet sounded, it was actually God’s voice! For the voice of the Lord is as a trumpet! The great assembly being an event that happen every 7 years in Israel in the ancient times where the temple was. And because on that 7-th year the king showed up, the king would blow a golden trumpet. Never was the golden trumpet been used at Yon Kippur. The golden trumpet was only used by the ‘7-yearly – great assembly’!  Silver refers to or is  a middle to redemption; Gold always refers to the Divinity of God! I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, (Revelation 1:10) After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter. (Revelation 4:1)

…There is a Priest, who is a King, Who is worthy…!

The very God Himself is involved in the great assembly of the first fruit saints/ first born righteous saints! (Rapture) There is a trumpet that God has; it is a solid gold trumpet. When the silver trumpets been sound we as the great assembly of the first fruit saints/ first born righteous saints are going to be up to meet the Lord in the air! The great assembly occurred every 7 years! Including men, women and children have participation in it. When the crowd arrived ‘the king’ would ascend the “bema” (Apostle Paul refers this to that all we have to appear before the Judgment seat of Christ) He brought the Torah-scroll to the Synagogue-priest; he then gave it to the High-Priest; he then past it to ‘the king’ who stood and received the Scroll! ……Also likewise in Revelation described the King opened 7-sealed scroll and red from it…!  

The “Rapture” should be called: “The great assembly” likewise what happen in ancient time every 7 years by the Hebrew people. At the rapture He is coming for His righteous first-fruit saints, to meet them in the air and bring them in the Temple in Heaven. With His Kingdom at His second coming is with His saints, from Heaven. 

Mid-tribulation?

The view that the Rapture will occur at the mid-point of the Tribulation is based upon 1 Corinthians 15:52 which states that the Rapture will occur at the blowing of “the last trumpet.” This Mid-Tribulation Rapture view then declares this trumpet to be the last of the seven trumpets in Revelation 11 that is blown at the mid-point of the Tribulation. Why of the 114 references to trumpets in the Scripture these two are identified as one and the same only defies sound Scriptural research! The context clearly shows the last trumpet of 1 Corinthians 15 is blown for believers whereas the seven trumpets (of judgments) of Revelation 8, 9 and 11 are sounded for unbelievers. The Revelation trumpets therefore can have no relevance for the Church!

Tekyiah Gadollah!

There is a 4-th blast called the Tekyiah Gadollah (Great Tekyiah). Some consider a fourth sound but it is simply a tekyiah held as long as breath lasts or is appropriate. Some Shofar blowers can hold a note for over a minute! (which also will occur at the Rapture!)

There is a difference of opinion in the Talmud as to whether the Teruah or the Shevarim was sounded in the Temple. As usual, the Rabbis compromised and both were considered valid. On Rosh Hashanah the Shofar is sounded 100 times with all the traditional forms. This is done to make sure that the Shofar is blown often enough and with the proper sounds to satisfy God!  How easy to be caught up in legalisms! Be sensitive to the inspiration of the Ruach (Spirit) and use the horn as you would use your voice as an instrument of praise! (See more at web-page of Shofars)

Rosh Hashanah is also the coronation of the king; Shofar/Trumpets are sounded at a coronation and G-D is hailed as King on this day! The Shofar is a ram’s horn which is blown somewhat like a trumpet. One of the most important observances of this holiday is hearing the sounding of the Shofar in the synagogue. A total of 100 notes are sounded each day. There are four different types of Shofar notes: tekiah, a 3 second sustained note; shevarim, three 1-second notes rising in tone, teruah, a series of short, staccato notes extending over a period of about 3 seconds; and tekiah gedolah (literally, “big tekiah”), the final blast in a set, which lasts (I think) 10 seconds minimum. The Scripture does not indicate a specific reason for this practice. One that has been suggested is that the Shofar’s sound is a call to repentance!

The Feast of Trumpets & the Rapture!

There is a strong connection with the Feast of Trumpets (season of the Fall Feasts of the Lord) and the Rapture!

Firstly, let’s take an annual look at the Feast of Trumpets or the Feast of Shofar-blowing as the Hebrew calls it. More commonly the day is referred to as Rosh Ha Shana, the Head of the Year – the New Year. According the Biblical instruction we are to have a holy convocation on the 1st day of the 10th month.

Say to the Israelites, On the first day of the seventh month [almost October], you shall observe a day of solemn [sabbatical] rest, a memorial day announced by blowing of trumpets (Shofar blowing), a holy [called] assembly. (Leviticus 23:24)

How can the 1st day of the 10th month be the New Year?  Furthermore the Lord says that Passover time in April is the beginning of the year for Israel.  This month shall be to you the beginning of months, the first month of the year to you. (Exodus 12:2)

One of the reasons the Feast of Shofar Blowing (Yom ah Truah)  is now celebrated as Rosh Ha Shana, is that the enemy wants to conceal or mask the true relevance of this Holy Feast of the Lord.  Concerning the Feasts, G-D calls them His Feasts – His appointed times!  We believe that the Feasts of the Lord prophetically show the Lord’s plan of redemption for Israel, and those who are grafted into Israel by the Blood of Yeshua, to form the One New Man: Therefore if any person is [in grafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh {and} new has come! (2  Corinthians 5:17; Also in Ephesians 2:15)   Every major New Testament event thus far, has been precisely fulfilled on an Old Testament festival!  The next event we are waiting for is the “Rapture” or the “catching away” of the Body of Messiah!(The righteous saints)  There are people out there who don’t believe in the Rapture, but it clearly in scripture!  Many Bible teachers who have a degree of understanding about the relevance of the Feasts, believe that the Rapture will occur on the Feast of Trumpets (when you hear the last trumpet – the trumpet of God and the shout of the Arch-angel). We don’t know the year, but I believe we can know the day by knowing about the Feasts. That is to recommend you do take the time to study the Feasts of the Lord!

The simple way to celebrate Yom Ha Truah or the Feast of Trumpet is to gather together for a Holy convocation, thank the Lord for His amazing redemption plan and the soon return if Yeshua to set up the Kingdom of G-D in Jerusalem, and for sending Yeshua to be our personal Redeemer, read the Scriptures. pray, blow the Shofar of course (Tekyiah Gadollah), and share some good food together. (David Silver’s; Comment Haifa Israel; edited; permission granted)

The Rapture is a glorious event which God has promised to the Church. The promise is that someday very soon, at the blowing of a trumpet and the shout of an archangel, Yeshua will appear in the sky and take up His Church, living and dead, to Heaven. The concept of the Rapture was not revealed to the Old Testament prophets because it is a promise to the New Testament Church and not to the saints of God who lived before the establishment of the Church.

“…and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before,  “whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. (Acts 3:20-21) 

The 7 days of creation, represent also the 7 years that believers are going to be in Heaven. The Church has been living at the Feast of Pentecost. The next Feast is “Trumpets”! 100 Trumpets are sounded on the “Feast of Trumpets”! It’s called Rosh Hashanah (Rosh Hashanah means, literally, “head of the year” or “first of the year.” Rosh Hashanah is commonly known as the Jewish New Year) Jewish New Year celebration in the fall of the year, the month of Tishri.) (The Scripture refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the Shofar). The holiday is instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.)

Rosh Hashanah is also the coronation of the king; (Trumpets/Shofars are sounded at a coronation and G-D is hailed as King on this day!) and it means also: “the wedding of the King”;  “the resurrection of the dead”; by Jewish people. It shows here that there is an ‘image’ there of the rapture; the coming of Yeshua/Christ; as being in Heaven as being linked to this particular Feast! We (The Church) are now in the dispensation of the grace of God!  If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: (Ephesians 3:2 KJV)
