"Make yourself two trumpets of silver, of hammered work you shall make them; you shall use them for summoning the congregation and for having the camps set out. When both are blown, all the congregation shall gather themselves to you at the doorway of the tent of meeting. "If only one is blown, then the leaders, the heads of the divisions of Israel, shall assemble before you.  When you blow an alarm, the camps...shall set out.... When convening the assembly, however, you shall blow without sounding an alarm. The priestly sons of Aaron shall blow the trumpets; and this shall be for you a perpetual statute throughout your generations.  When you go to war in your land against the adversary who attacks you, you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before YAHUWAH your YHWH" (Num 10:1-10).

  Yom Teruah, the "Day of Blowing," is sometimes called The Feast of Trumpets. And, at least in part, it is a feast that we, Messiah's Body, are called to fulfill!  But, if so, then to be part of that fulfillment, will be like living in Bible times! Born on Sukkot (Tabernacles), our Messiah became our Passover Lamb, was raised as the First of First Fruits, poured out His Spirit on His people at Shavuot (Pentecost), and, it is believed by many that He will return to rule and reign, as the Judge of the whole earth, on Yom Kippur, the day of Atonement (At One with יְהוָה , if you will).  Then, He will forevermore Tabernacle here on Earth with His people, Israel.   But this leaves out Yom Teruah. What is its purpose?  How is it fulfilled? Our Father is reuniting the two sticks of "Ephraim and Manasseh and Judah," making "both the houses of Israel" "one stick in His Hand" (Isa 8:14; Ezek 37:15-28).

 
  According to Jewish tradition, this day is called Rosh Hashanah, because, after Judah was taken captive to Babylon-like the Babylonians among whom they were forced to dwell-Judah began to call this day the Head of the Year. However, our Father told us, "This month [Abib, which corresponds to March-April] shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you" (Exodus 12:2). Many say Rosh Hashanah is but a "civil" year celebration.  However, at this time, the rabbis begin anew their yearly cycle of Torah readings- which surely indicates a "spiritual" calendar. Realizing that "both houses" have "stumbled" and thus erred, as Ephraim and Manasseh seeks to return to his roots, he would do well to be careful to embrace only "Biblical" roots. Let him not trade in "Roman mistakes" for "Babylonian blunders." Ephraim and Manasseh needs to see that the Father wants him-the formerly "wild" olive branch-to provoke Judah-to make them want what they have-that being a living relationship with the Messiah of Israel (Jer 11:10,16; 2:18,21; Rom 11). This is even more true when Ephraim and Manasseh and Judah are reunited! Their collective testimony has even more power! However, Ephraim and Manasseh must realize that he will not provoke Judah by becoming "more Jewish than the Jew."  Instead, Ephraim and Manasseh needs to catch a vision.  He needs to see that he yet has a great role to play, by better understanding Torah, and in latter-day celebrations of the "feasts of Israel."

                                       EPHRAIM'S and Manasseh's CALL

  The Father's plan of salvation for "all Israel" is to have Ephraim and Manasseh provoke Judah to "envy."  But instead, in many cases, Ephraim and Manasseh are "jealous" of Judah (Rom 11:11; Isa 11:13).  But in this last day, this order will be reversed.  Ephraim's and Manasseh's jealousy of Judah "will depart" when Ephraim and Manasseh learns of his own Israelite roots (Jer 31:18,19). How the Father plans to make Judah want to emulate Ephraim and are revealed in the parable of the prodigal:  As stated in the Herald, From Orphans To Heirs, the way the "returning prodigal" (Ephraim) made the older son (Judah) jealous, was by "celebrating and rejoicing."   "Making merry" made jealous. Legalism and religion will not provoke Judah.  Celebration will.  This is why so many non-Jews are feeling an unexplainable urge to "celebrate the Feasts of Israel."  So how might we celebrate this  Day of Blowing? If you can't afford to make a major investment in two silver trumpets, you might go to a "Christmas" store and buy two of their long brass colored "trumpets," spray paint them silver, and have "Judah and Ephraim" sound them when you gather together.  Then, based on Numbers 10:1-10, issue the clarion call:  "Let the twin voices of Ephraim and Manasseh and
Judah be heard in this place!"

                                  The Purposes of The Two Trumpets

  To celebrate Yom Teruah, YAHUWAH said to make "two trumpets of silver hammered work."  He also said that "priests" were to blow them to summon "all the congregation," or, "to have the camps set out."  Also, they were to be sounded "when we go to war in our land," so we will "be remembered before YAHUWAH our YHWH," and, by Him, "be saved from our enemies" (Num 10:1-10). It is the unified sound of these two trumpets that serves to gather "all" Israel.


                                          The Two Trumpets Depict...

  Two trumpets. Two houses. Judah and Ephraim. Trumpets depict "voices," and historically, there have been only two people groups in the Earth who have been giving voice to a good testimony about the "יְהוָה of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob." Those two people groups are, "Christians and Jews."  They are the only two major people groups who both claim that He is "their יְהוָה ." This is not to imply that everyone who claims to be part of either group is acceptable to the Father.   It is simply to state that, both claim to believe in Him, and for centuries on end, both have been giving "testimony" about Him. In the Earth, they have been "two witnesses" for the יְהוָה of Israel.  And, the Father said of the people of Israel,"You are My witnesses" (Isa 43:10).  And, He divided the twelve tribes of Israel into two houses (2 Chr 11:4).  Further, He declared that all things must be confirmed by, "two or more" before it can be "established," confirmed, believed (Num 35:30; Deu 17:6; 19:15; John 8:17; 2 Cor 13:1). The problem is that, in many ways the voices of these two people groups have not been sounding in "unison."  Instead, they deny one another. The twin trumpets of Teruah forecast two latter-day voices that speak in perfect harmony.  They foretell the latter-day voices of "two witnesses" who finally serve their purpose-they confirm the Father's truth in the Earth.  And their unified voices will be used to gather "all" Israel!

                                           Hammered Until We Repent

  These trumpets are made of "hammered silver."  Silver speaks of redemption (Gen 20:16; Lev 5:15; 27:3,6; Num 18:16), and it symbolizes refinement (Psa 12:6; 66:10; Isa 48:10; Eze 22:22; Mal 3:3).   And, YAHUWAH says of His two witnesses: "Behold, I will refine them....in order to refine, purge, and make them pure, until the end time.... I will...refine them as silver...and ...they will call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, `They are My people,' and they will say, `The L-rd is my יְהוָה '....As a purifier of silver, He will purify ...and refine...that they may present to the L-rd offerings in righteousness" (Jer 9:7; Dan 11:35; Zech 13:9; Hosea 1:10; Mal 3:3). "Hammered" trumpets speak of His molding us through affliction.   His "hammered ones" have taken their proverbial trip to the "wilderness."  There, as promised, the Father has dealt with them, "face to face" (Ezek 20:35). This foretells a people who have seen the face of the Holy One-and it has forever changed them

.
They are the purged and fully pardoned company of Jacob: "Through this Jacob's iniquity will be forgiven; and this will be the full price of the pardoning of his sin: When he makes all the altar stones like pulverized chalk stones; when Asherim and incense altars will not stand" (Isa 27:9). Through both of the houses of Israel, the Holy One has been trying to "hammer" out a twofold message. It is, the twin truths of Law and Grace.  And, as His two witnesses, Ephraim and Manasseh and Judah must come to a place of unity concerning His Holy Word, from Genesis to Revelation.  Only then, will we have served our true purpose as His "two witnesses."  Further, we can rest assured that the Holy One will continue to "hammer" us until we get it right!  And, some will get it right!  (Rom 11:4).

                                            Yom Teruah and You!

  In this last day, the Father would like to count on us!  He would have us catch a vision!  He wants us to see that, the clear sound of the two Yom Teruah trumpets signals the beginning of the ten days between Teruah and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

                                      Yom Teruah and the Ten Rich Days

Yom Teruah marks the beginning of a "ten day" period.  In Hebrew, ten is `eser.  Like the English number ten, it speaks of, accumulation of digits (i.e., seven-teen).  However, this word comes from the same root as that of `ashar, which means to accumulate; chiefly, to make rich. Speaking of a day when Judah is no longer blinded to the Messiah, the apostle Paul says: "Now if their transgression is riches for the world and their failure is riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their fulfillment be!" (Rom 11:12). The sound of these unified voices marks the beginning of a time of great richness-meaning- a richness of our Father's power and presence. Also, the Father speaks of a day when "a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for impurity."  It is a day wherein He removes "the idols from the land...and...the prophets and the unclean spirit...."  However, "`Two parts in it will be cut off and perish; but the third will be left in it.  And I will bring the third part through the fire, refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, `They are My people,' And they will say, `YAHUWAH is my יְהוָה .'  Behold, a day is coming for YAHUWAH when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you..." (Zech 13:1-14:1).

 
  The phrase, "ten days," is mentioned ten times in Scripture. We see it in   Daniel's request that he and his friends be tested for ten days:  "Test your servants for ten days..." he asked (Dan 1:12-14).  Also, Malki Tzedik YEHOWSHUA said to the assembly/ekklesia of Smyrna:  "Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, so that you will be tested, and you will have tribulation for ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life" (Rev 2:10).  In addition, Malki Tzedik YEHOWSHUA says to this ekklesia: "And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: The first and the last, who was dead, and has come to life, says this: `I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews/Mormans and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan'" (Rev 2:8,9). Those having their riches restored will have to battle those who claim to be "Jews," but are in truth of Satan himself (Phil 3:3).  Truly, we have to watch out for both Roman and Babylonian snares, and for those who tout their errant teachings. Traditionally, Yom Teruah begins a time when Israelites are called to make peace with their brother (but not at the price of compromise of truth.)  Often called the Ten Days of Awe, they mark a time for self-examination and repentance, a time for men to make peace with their brethren, and so to prepare their hearts for Yom Kippur. Time is short Patria/Family.  And we have an awesome message to declare.  As "priests" of the Most High, we need to encourage all Israel.  We need to call out:  It is time for "all the camps to set out!"  We need to cry out, "The cloud is moving!  And let us move with it!  We also must sound the alarm for war against all that would oppress/hinder that which the Father would do in us at this hour.  We must war for our promised Land (Isa 11:13-14)! However, like our forefathers who were in bond-age in Egypt, so we too will only be delivered when we have a heart-felt desire for deliverance! (Exo 2:23-25).  Again, these trumpets are made of silver, or keh'sef.  This word comes from kawsaf'; a primal root that can be translated as longing: "My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the L-rd..." (Psalm 84:2). Those who go into the furnace of affliction, and so are tried as silver-those who truly long for deliverance from bondage to this world system -those who yearn for the restoration of YAHUWAH's Kingdom over all Israel-they will yet sing a new song.  For He has sworn:  "I will gather those who grieve about the appointed feasts-They came from you, O Zion; the reproach of exile is a burden on them" (Zeph 3:18).  Yes, we will yet sing "the song of Moses"! (Rev 15:3). There are Believers from both Ephraim and Manasseh and Judah in the reunited house of Messianic Israel. And this means, Israel is once more sounding the twin trumpets of Teruah! In the past, each house has had only one voice, one trumpet. And Scripture reveals that, if only "one" is blown, all you get is "leaders."  So it is that in church and synagogue alike, we have far too many "leaders" when Messiah called us to be "servants"!  (Mark 9:35). These trumpets are to be sounded by "priests."  And we who are being called forth by Malki Tzedik YEHOWSHUA are, "A chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to יְהוָה , that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light" (1 Pet 2:9). These trumpets are to be sounded that "we may be remembered before the L-rd our יְהוָה ," that by Him, we might be "saved from our enemies." Both exciting and hard times lie just ahead.  Before long, our enemies may well be "those of our own households" (Matt 10:35). Speaking of the destruction of enemy Babylon, Father says: "`At that time... the sons of Israel will come, both they and the sons of Judah as well; they will go along weeping as they go, and it will  be YAHUWAH their יְהוָה they will seek.  They will ask for the way to Zion [The City of Truth], turning their faces in its direction; they will come that they may join themselves to YAHUWAH in an everlasting covenant that will not be forgotten.  In those days and at that time... search will be made for the iniquity of Israel, but there will be none; and for the sins of Judah, but they will not be found"  (Jer 50:4-5,20). There is coming a sinless Israel that speaks with a united voice.   And,  "How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!" (Psa 89:15).   "Happy is the people who know he joyful shout..." (Tanakh).  "Blessed are the people who know the festal shout..." (RSV).  "Blessed-happy, fortunate [to be envied]-are those who know the joyful sound [understand and appreciate the spiritual blessings symbolized by the feasts]" (TAB). The word translated sound, or shout, is teruah!  It speaks of the sound of the trumpets!  And blessed are those who hear its call! So let us hear the call!  Let all Israel/BOTH HOUSES now go forth in victory............SELAH
