Num 29: 1-6; Lev 23:23-25
First day of the seventh month (Tisri) denoted by the appearance of the new moon.
Designated a sabbath.
A “holy convocation”.
“…no servile work”
“Memorial” blowing of the trumpets.
Two Shofar Horns.
Additional Burnt Offering and Sin Offering.
It was declared a Sabbath, a holy convocation
It required burnt and sin offerings in addition to the monthly and daily offerings
The additional burnt offerings caused additional blowing of trumpets
The trumpets had to be blown over the Burnt offering and the Peace offering for a specific purpose-“that they may be to you for a memorial before your God”. “For a memorial…” The phrase virtually interprets itself, but there is no doubt whatsoever as to its meaning when we note the contents of the previous verse. There we find the command to the priests to blow an alarm with the trumpets “if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you”, with the added promise, “and ye shall be remembered before the Lord your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies”. The juxtaposition of the two ordinances is most enlightening: in each case an appeal was made to God to be mindful of His people, in the one because of their struggle against a literal oppressor, in the other because of their strife with a more sinister foe still, namely, Sin-the literal being once again the sign and symbol of the spiritual. In both cases Israel called upon God to save them, as His children, from the common enemy (Num 10:9-10). This they had to do through the priests, because the latter so naturally served as an objective representation of the whole Priestly People.” (Law and Grace, Barling)
“We beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him” (2 Thess 2:1). He thus taught that there will be a gathering of saints at the coming of the Lord “Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice” (Psa 50:5).
“…the celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the head of the New Year, set forth in the Law, was not to the Hebrews a time of ribald revelry as it is to the Gentiles, but a celebration of deepest, most solemn, religious import. The solemnity with which it was viewed may be gauged with the solemnity with which believers anticipate the coming of the Lord.”
“…the dead assembled for judgment are men and women in the flesh recovered from the grave, reproduced, and made to “stand again” (anastasis) in the presence of their Lord and Judge, to have it determined whether they are worthy of receiving the “hidden manna” of eternal life, for which they are all candidates, or deserving of reconsignment to corruption and death, under the special solemn circumstance of rejection by him who is “altogether lovely”…
those who bear the tidings are a
great host.” (Psa 68:11)
* Christ returns in a Jubilee year (see Heb. 11:3; Lev. 25:8–11; Isa. 61:1–3).
* The Millennium commences—50 years later (Ezek. 40:1; cp. Lev. 25:8–11).
* This period divided into:
10 years’ personal and national judgment culminating at Armageddon. (Based on the ten days from the sounding of the trumpet on the 1st of the 7th month to the Day of Atonement—See Lev. 23:23–32; 1 Thess. 4:16; Rev. 15:8).
40 Years’ restoration and rebuilding of Israel (Mic. 7:15–20). This period divided into the Conversion of Judah (Zech. 12:7–14), and the ultimatum to the nations (Psa. 2:10–12; Isa. 14:32; Rev. 10:11; 14:7–10); a suggested period of 10 years.
Thirty years subjection of Catholic countries (Rev. 14:8–10; 17:12–14) and restoration of all the tribes.
THE MILLENNIUM comprises one thousand years of peace (Rev. 20:6). It will commence when all nations have been brought into subjection to Christ, and Israel has been completely restored. The Temple in Jerusalem will then be opened for worship for the first time (Ezekiel 43).
