Yom Teruah — Listening for Messiah’s Wakeup Call, part 2

Yom Teruah, called Rosh haShanah on the rabbinic calendar, is the first of God’s three fall appointments with His people. The imagery of trumpet blasts and calls to pay attention permeate the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. What is the message God wants the people near the apocalyptic Day of the LORD to hear?

Food for thought from the recorded discussion

The Bible makes frequent references to the “last trumpet” (1st Cor. 15:52). What is this trumpet? Is it a calling to judgment and trial? 

Isa. 8:3-5; Isa. 11:10 — Who is the ensign/banner?

Isa. 27:1-4,12-13; John 16:7 — Who being is judged? Is the work of the Holy Spirit completed? When will God’s sentencing take place? Will Satan live forever? What does it mean that Satan will be “ashes under your feet”? “In that day…” What does this phrase mean?

Isa. 58:1-2 — What are these people seeking? Are they seeking God or their own image? What does God want them to do?

Jer. 4:1,5 — Is our nation “putting away its abominations”? Where does the destruction come from?

Jer. 6:1 — What is north of Israel? What is the connection with Islam?

Hosea 8:1; Joel 2:1; Amos 3:1-3,6 — Is the Day of the LORD glorious and joyous? With which people does the Day of the LORD start? Is the Day of the LORD one day? How long is the Day of the LORD?

Isa. 2:12; Isa. 13:6,8-9 — What land is God focusing the Day of The LORD upon?

Isa. 34:8 — What is the minimum length of time of the Day of the Lord?

Jer. 46:10 — Who is God’s real enemy? Where do they come from?

Lam. 2:22 — Who wrote the book of Lamentations? Was Jeremiah talking about his personal pain?

Mal. 4:5-6

Other examples of the Day of the LORD: 1st Cor. 5:5; 1st Thess. 5:2; 2nd Pe. 3:10; Rev. 1:10.
