The Day of Trumpets

Yom Teruah, commonly known as the Day of Trumpets, is one of the biblical feasts mentioned in the Torah. While it is traditionally observed by Jews, many Messianic Christians also honor this day, recognizing its significance and its connection to Yeshua (Jesus). This article delves into the meaning of Yom Teruah and its profound relationship with the Messiah.

What is Yom Teruah?

Yom Teruah, which translates to “Day of Shouting” or “Day of Trumpets,” is observed on the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei. It is one of the seven annual appointed times (moedim) mentioned in the Torah. The primary commandment associated with Yom Teruah is to hear the sounding of the shofar (ram’s horn) as mentioned in Numbers 29:1: “On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the trumpets.”


The blowing of the shofar is a call to attention, a wake-up call for spiritual introspection, and a heralding of God’s sovereignty. It is a day of rest, reflection, and renewal.

Yom Teruah and Yeshua (Jesus)

For Messianic Christians, the biblical feasts are not just historical or traditional observances but are also prophetic in nature, pointing to the work and mission of Yeshua. Here’s how Yom Teruah connects with Him:

The Return of the Messiah:

The New Testament speaks of a future event when Yeshua will return, and this event will be heralded by the sound of a great trumpet. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, it says, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.” The sounding of the shofar on Yom Teruah is reminiscent of this prophetic event.

Awakening and Resurrection:

The shofar’s blast is also symbolic of resurrection. As Yeshua was the first to rise from the dead, the trumpet’s sound reminds believers of the future resurrection at His return. 1 Corinthians 15:52 says, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”

Call to Repentance:

Yom Teruah also marks the beginning of the Ten Days of Repentance leading up to Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The trumpet’s sound is a call to repentance, reminding believers of Yeshua’s message to turn from sin and embrace the Kingdom of God.

For Messianic Christians, Yom Teruah is not just a Jewish tradition but a significant day that points to the work and return of Yeshua. By observing this feast, believers are reminded of God’s faithfulness, the promise of Yeshua’s return, and the call to live a life of repentance and anticipation for the Kingdom of God.
