Yom Teruah – The Day of Shouting

In this segment of Feasts of the Seventh Month, we will talk about Yom Teruah (the Feast of Trumpets), more accurately known as the Day of Shouting or the Day of Shofar Blasts. We are going to talk about why the timing of Yahweh’s feasts is so important, the correct definitions of aviv [barley], and what ‘teruah’ actually means. Then, in the second half of this segment, we will talk about the Ancient-Hebrew wedding ceremony and the spiritual significance of Yom Teruah.

Timing of Yom Teruah and Yahweh’s moedim

To begin, we need to understand why the timing of Yom Teruah (and all of Yahweh’s feasts) matters. We will see that Yahweh’s Moedim (or appointed times) are the times that He has appointed for us to gather together to worship Him, to spend time with Him, and to be with Him. His Moedim are like actual dates He plans with His people. Dates that we want to get right and not miss or be late for! We will see that Yahweh is seeking a bride for His Son Yeshua, and that we hope to be that bride.

The timing of the feasts is very important. There has been a tremendous amount of bad teachings on the feasts over the years, so there is going to be a tremendous amount of unlearning for many people to do. We are going to talk about all that, as well as when the correct timing is for Yom Teruah.

Yom Teruah, a special type of Rosh Chodesh

One of the most basic of all Yahweh’s Moedim is the New Moon Day (Rosh Chodesh) the beginning of each Hebrew month. We will talk about the significance of each new moon day. And we will also see that each Hebrew year has two very special New Moon Days. The first of which is Rosh HaShanah (the beginning of the Hebrew year), and the second being Yom Teruah, the head of the seventh Hebrew month. We will talk about what makes each of these days so special from other Rosh Chodesh, and why these days are important for the timing of Yahweh’s feasts.

The equinox, the harvest, and bad calendars

In order to make sure we are keeping Yahweh’s feasts at His appointed times, it is important to first establish the Head of the Year (Rosh HaShanah) at the correct time, so that everything else aligns correctly. We will talk about some of the wrong teachings that exists, which leads many believers to keep Yahweh’s feasts at the incorrect time. And if you would like more details, we encourage you to check out the study Establishing the Head of the Year.

Ancient Hebrew Wedding Ceremony

Once we understand what Yom Teruah is and about the timing of Yom Teruah, we will then take a deeper look and see how Yom Teruah fits in the Ancient Hebrew Wedding model.

Many people do not know about the Ancient Hebrew Wedding Ceremony, much less how it corresponds with Yahweh’s feasts and His plan for His people. But if we understand about the two-houses and also the Ancient-Hebrew wedding ceremony, this will give us a big-picture perspective of what Yahweh is doing. Once we understand these things, we will understand much more of Scripture, what it is about, and the big-picture perspective of how everything fits together.

We will see why this special day is called The Day of Trumpets, The Day of Shouting, and the Day of Shofar blasts. And once we understand the symbolism in Yom Teruah, we will undertsand why the shouts we give on Yom Teruah are not only alarms for battle, but also shouts of joy!

Prophetic symbolism of Yom Teruah in Revelation

Lastly, but no less important, we will talk about how the parable of the wise virgins spoken about in Mattityahu (Matthew) 25, and how traditionally, the bridegroom returns for His bride around midnight on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), ten days after Yom Teruah (the Day of Shouting/Trumpets). We will see the correspondence between Yom Teruah and the sounding of the seven trumpets in the book of Revelation, and how the feasts each point to Yeshua. And with this understanding, we will see how important it is for Yeshua’s bride to not only keep His Father’s feasts, but to keep them at the correct time.
