Fall Holy Day Season Begins Wednesday Evening

The Fall holy day season is almost upon us. Wednesday at sunset begins the month of Tishri, and the first day of this month is observed by the Living Church of God as the Feast of Trumpets.

Jews also have an observation, but they normally use the term Rosh Hoshanah.

We in the Living Church of God believe that the holy days on the Old Testament all have applications for Christians in the New Testament.

There is partial agreement of this even amongst Catholic and Protestant theologians as they accept that Christ was the Passover lamb and that Christians are to be unleavened (which is what the Bible teaches in 1 Corinthians 5:7). They also accept that God gave the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4).

These dates occur in the Spring.

However, many of Catholic and Protestant theologians seem to have a different view of the Fall holy days. And most fail to grasp the prophetic significance of them.

But all do realize that the New Testament is full of references to trumpets being blown.

We in the Living Church of God believe that two of the many things that the Feast of Trumpets pictures is the return of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of His people when the last trumpet is blown.

Notice the following scriptures:

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words
(1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed– 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (1 Corinthians 15:50-52).

These verses will be fulfilled. And they reflect doctrines that the Christian observance of the Feast of Trumpets teaches.
