Feast of Trumpets


And the Lord said to Moses, “Say to the people of Israel, in the seventh month on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no laborious work; and you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord.” Leviticus 23:23-26






The feast of Trumpets began 10 days prior to the Day of Atonement:

10 x 33.898 = 338.98 years    
1844 – 338.98 = 1505 + 33.898 = 1538.89 or rather the fall of 1538.


This was my first understanding of the time frame but I have had questions in that there are 9 days of preparation from Trumpets to Atonement. I firmly believe that the 1505 date is of great import in that as you will see following 1505 gave birth to the Great Reformation by Martin Luther. If one studies more into history however one will find that in October of 1538 just 33.898 years later the Bible was officially, by decree of King Henry 8th placed in all of the churches in England. That in itself is a loud Trumpet blast is it not! Also the people were given 9 days to prepare for the Day of Atonement not 10.  I do believe that this feast of Trumpets is very special and thus have 2 events marking its beginning and the start of "The Great Awakening"
