Passover is the day we received forgiveness and salvation. The feast of unleavened bread is when Christians started to believe and follow Jesus. Feast of First-fruits is when the Christians started to give the first fruit offerings to the Lord. Sabbath is when praising, the heart is overflowing with the holy spirit. Pentecost is was the beginning of the first generation church. The feast of trumpets is the sound of Jesus’ second coming, the call for Christians to witness. Yom Kippur is the day when the people repent and return to God. Sukkoth is to conquer and rule the promised land, and when faith is passed down to future generations.
When receiving salvation and forgiveness, and then believing and following Jesus, you also end up giving glory to God. When overflowing with the Holy Spirit, you also find yourself witnessing to other, and through that, there are people who will come and follow Jesus too.
Today’s word will be the feast of trumpets that signal the second coming of Jesus.
Numbers 10:1-3 “10 The Lord said to Moses: 2 “Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out. 3 When both are sounded, the whole community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting.”
The Lord commanded Moses to make and sound both of the trumpets. If Moses didn’t listen only made one trumpet and make sound of only one trumpet, then the atmosphere, the calling of community may have been broken, or less powerful.
When the weak gather, or when people come together and work together, they become one and also become stronger, more powerful.
If there was no one to blow the trumpets, then the sound of trumpets would not be made.
If we don’t witness or tell others about God’s Love and the good news, then there is no guarantee that other people who don’t believe will have a chance to learn about God’s glory and God’s love.
Romans 10:14 ”How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”
The sound of trumpets are the sound of God’s voice, God’s word, so we must obey.
If people did things on their own, if we did not obey God, then the public order will break, there will be chaos.
The sound of trumpets, they are also the sound of war. When we hear the sound of the trumpets, the sound of war, we must not be afraid and recoil, we must have faith and believe and be strong. We must trust and believe in God.
Evil spirits will try to weaken and break our relationship with God. We must strengthen our faith, trust God and believe in Him.
During the Korean War, there was a general named Baek Sun-yeop. At one point the war got into a city in Korea called Da-Boo-Dong and General Sun-Yeop, along with his fellow soldiers, won. General Sun-Yeop said that when fighting in a war when you go by the book, you will win. Just like this, when we are fighting evil spirits or our own sinful desires, we must follow God’s word and His order and follow His directions, and only then can we win our war.
In this world, there are many different noises and sounds that even when we witness, they will block the attempts and distract the people from listening and hearing God’s word and love. Then there are also Christians who hear and listen to the noise of this world and will end up becoming just Sunday Christians. That’s why not only must we just say it through our words, but we must also show it through our actions that we are Christian. Even so, be careful and do not fully rely on actions only. You need both. You must not only witness and talk and share about God’s love and the good news, but you must also show who you are as a Christian through your actions, but you must also not show only through action, but you must also talk and witness to others.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52 “51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”
Jesus’s second coming is getting closer and closer. Do not let your spirit fall asleep. We must be ready, believe, have faith, and wait for the sound of the trumpets.

Matthew 5:13 – 16 “13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
