We already have lots of information from YHVH’s Word on “trumpets” and yet there is still more to be mined from the treasure of His Word! Today we will look at some of the KEY WORDS that we have seen in the verses so far. We will study them a little bit more to see what they have to tell us and what relation and/or aspect they have upon the Feast of Trumpets. It may seem as we “rabbit trailing” with our study today, but at the end it will all come together to give us a complete picture of the Feast. I often use other translations as the words used can give a clearer understanding.
I use the Bible Study Tools on Crosswalk.com as an easy way to compare the translations/versions. It has many translations/versions as well as the NASB with Strongs #’s here: www.crosswalk.com , just input a word or verse or passage in the “Search the Bible” box midway on the right hand side of the page. You will then see either the verse/passage or a list of verses that contain the word searched for. You can change the version of the scriptures in the drop down box above the verse. The only two translations that are keyed with the Strong’s lexicons are the KJV and the NASB. If you choose these, and want to see the keyed words, just put a check mark in the small box for “Strong’s Numbers”. You can also check the box for “Cross References” as well. You will then be able to either hover over the highlighted number or click it to see and click on the cross-references.
Today we will continue our study with OBSERVING Cross References and related passages. We will repeat the OBSERVATION of all the related passages throughout the study using the whole counsel of the Word to determine the INTERPRETATION of the topic, book or passage we are studying. Then after INTERPRETATION phase is completed, we will APPLY what we have learned in our lives. Each day will build upon the previous and we will summarize what was OBSERVED in each. Group discussion allows you to share your insights with others who are participating in the study. Additional insight can be gleaned from the Observations of the group, so please share yours for discussion!
The Feast of Trumpets is the first of the three fall feasts. It is a memorial feast as well as a prophetic Feast Day as Yeshua has not yet fulfilled it. In this study we will inductively study the references of the Feast of Trumpets as well as trumpets to see this prophetic aspect.
Begin with PRAYER. Pray for understanding of what you will be studying and that above all that you will have a heart to seek and to know YHVH and His Ways.
The first reference to a topic gives us important context, in this case we see that the first reference to “trumpets” is the command to celebrate as a Feast. We will first OBSERVE the text and list what it says about the Feast of Trumpets.
