What is Yom Teruah?
Yom Teruah is the first fall feast – it marks the start of the fall feast season. Teruah means to make a loud noise, which is why Yom Teruah is also called the “Day of Trumpets” or even “Day of Shouting.”
What Does It Mean?
Because we don’t know for sure when the first sliver of the new moon will be sighted, we have to be completely ready for Yom Teruah before it comes; it’s a rehearsal for the ultimate Yom Teruah when Yeshua returns.
When Did Yom Teruah Originate?
The Bible tells us it is a memorial of blowing of trumpets. The event this reference is one we are told many times not to forget – the day the Almighty shouted down the 10 commandments to the people from atop Mount Sinai in the desert after delivering them from slavery in Egypt.
It also heralds the Messiah’s second coming in prophecy (during which he will fulfill all the fall feasts just as he fulfilled the spring feasts at his first coming).
