(Numbers 29:1) ‘Now in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall also have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. It will be to you a day for blowing horns יוֹם תְּרוּעָה.
God tells us to come together, blow horns and make some noise.
(Leviticus 23:23-25) Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘In the seventh month on the first of the month you shall have a rest, a reminder by blowing of horns, a holy convocation. You shall not do any laborious work, but you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord.’”
Reminder of blowing of horns – זִכְרוֹן תְּרוּעָה
(TLB) … it is a time of remembrance, and is to be announced by loud blowing of trumpets.
God calls us to blow horns and this is to announce something He wants us to remember. What is it that God wants us to remember?
(Rosh Hashanah Prayer) … May it (the shofar) direct our thoughts to [cause us to remember] the day when the Shofar will sound for the redemption of all mankind.
(Weekday Amidah) “Sound the great shofar for our freedom, raise the banner to gather our exiles and gather us together from the four corners of the earth.”
(Matthew 24:30-31) And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great shofar and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
(1 Thessalonians 4:16) For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the shofar of God. Shout – תְּרוּעָה
Yeshua will return with His angels to redeem people from Israel and every nation who belong to Him. There will be a teruah; a shout and blast of the great shofar. God calls us to meet yearly to blow the shofar and shout so that we’ll be very familiar with these sounds and recognize them instantly when Yeshua returns.
