Inductive Torah Study: The Feast of Trumpets – Day Five
Today we will look at more references of blowing the “trumpet” for more insight into when it was to be blown. You probably are already seeing that our study into the Feast of Trumpets is also a study in part of Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles. All of the Feasts are interconnected and lead into the next as YHVH’s redemption is being played out. You may have also seen and noted that many of the scriptures studied contain a form of the statement “because YHVH brought you out of Egypt”, which is the beginning of His redemptive process and what the Feasts are about!
Today we will continue to pull the “thread” of trumpets and see how it is woven through His Word and how He reveals His redemptive plan through it.
Begin with PRAYER. If you like personalize and pray Psalm 27 to The Father!
1. There is a lot of references to the singular form “trumpet” that give us insight into WHO, WHEN, WHERE, WHY and HOW they were blown. OBSERVE each verse and list your insights on each. Don’t forget to continue your list of OBSERVATIONS on what you learn about YHVH and how He works. Also, note, as well, as your insights, any connections and recurring themes, prophetic, you see in the scripture that we are studying. This will help “bring it all together”. Not any questions you have, for further study.

In verses where the reference is in a certain “month” on a certain “day” is given, note what happened/or is to happen on a “calendar” chart (see “calendar chart” provided).
