The trumpet will sound! The trumpet, or shofar, is the hallmark of Rosh Hashanah, which is why it is known as the Feast of Trumpets. But Rosh Hashanah and Christianity? Isn’t it a Jewish holiday? What does one have to do with the other?

“…in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”
1 Corinthians 15:52 NIV

The Trumpet Will Sound – Rosh Hashanah and Christianity?

Many people hear Rosh Hashanah and immediately identify it as a Jewish holiday. But is it? Yes it is. But it is deeper than just a “holiday”.

In actuality, it is a Biblical festival. It is a festival of the Lord with significance for both Jews and Christians.  For Jews, the Festival is part of their heritage and culture. It also has religious significance as it is tied into the Days of Awe, where atonement was made.

For Christians, it has prophetic significance and provides great insight into their faith in a Jewish Messiah. Christians should have an understanding of the roots of their faith and this day is one of such significance prophetically that I think all Christians should seek to understand it.

After all, Ephesians 2:11-13 speaks of the Gentile’s reconciliation:

Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.  But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.” NIV

Galatians 3:28 says:

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” NIV

 

They are all pictures and foreshadowings of Jesus, the plan of redemption, and the return of our King.

So, what is Rosh Hashanah exactly?

The Trumpet Will Sound – What is Rosh Hashanah?

Rosh Hashanah is known as the Jewish New Year but it is actually new year, not THE new year.

There are actually multiple new years in Israel, much like we have multiple new years here in the United States and other countries as well.

Here we have a fiscal year, a tax year, and so on.

I go into more detail about the various new years in the audio message below, as well as greater detail about the history of Rosh Hashanah and how it is the anniversary of creation, and began to be observed with The Binding of Isaac.

The Trumpet Will Sound – The Audio Message

Below is my audio message on Rosh Hashanah and the Church.

I go into the history of the festival, its significance for the believer, and how throughout history it spoke of the return of Jesus for His own!

In this audio message I will discuss what Rosh Hashanah is all about and what it means for you, the believer!


We will discuss prophetic verses, such as 1 Corinthians 15:52 and how the Talmud actually confirms this verse!

I talk about how Rosh Hashanah may be the “season” we are told to look for in scripture as it pertains to Jesus’ return.

And I also discuss what a shofar is and how it came to be used on Rosh Hashanah.

If you would like a shofar for yourself, I have linked some below!

Rosh Hashanah and Christianity are not mutually exclusive. They are, like all of scripture, a picture of God’s plan for mankind.

    This is so good! I love the parallels for the church today…God is so cool like that – He always foreshadows the things that are to come, through our roots!

    I love it when Christians take the Jewish foundations of their faith to heart. In September I will start back teaching another Messianic Bible Study, this time using Messiah in the Feasts of Israel by Sam Nadler. Each year when Rosh Hashanah approaches, I start earnestly listening for that trumpet call! I’m also studying Hebrew so I can read the Scriptures in Hebrew. Such a difference!

    Thank you for sharing this information with us, Dianne. Some of the festivals I assumed were Jewish really have significance for Christians too.

    Great post Diane. Feast of Trumpets ushers in the Fall Feasts in such a wonderful way – it gets us ready for introspection and forgiveness at the same time providing joy and celebration. God is so good!

    Shalom, I just rans across your blog and love it!* I just wanted to comment that as much as I too love to see Christians study these biblical feasts, I hate to see them then return to the pagan festivals of man as though just knowing that the festivals exist are sufficient. While it is accurate to say that without the Tabernacle or Temple we cannot truly participate in the moedim as first commanded; it says in this weeks Parsha Re’eh: “30be careful not to be trapped into imitating them after they have been destroyed before you.
