Trumpets and New Moons texts with Historical applications

Trumpets and New Moons

Yet another building block in place


With these texts we are establishing the fact that the "New Moons/Beginning of each month" was also a feast unto the Lord. These feasts given to Moses were from the pattern shown him of the Heavenly thus making them "type". If there is a type there must naturally be an "anti-type". It wasn’t until I was reading "God Cares II" that I saw the 538 which I have known existed for some time in our SDA prophetic teachings but although I "knew" it I never "saw" it. Please now follow the remainder of the "feasts" come to life in our world’s history.

Numbers 10:1-10 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Make two silver trumpets; of hammered work you shall make them; and you shall use them for summoning the congregation, and for breaking camp. 3 And when both are blown, all the congregation shall gather themselves to you at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 4 But if they blow only one, then the leaders, the heads of the tribes of Israel, shall gather themselves to you. 5 When you blow an alarm, the camps that are on the east side shall set out. 6 And when you blow an alarm the second time, the camps that are on the south side shall set out. An alarm is to be blown whenever they are to set out. 7 But when the assembly is to be gathered together, you shall blow, but you shall not sound an alarm. 8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets. The trumpets shall be to you for a perpetual statute throughout your generations. 9 And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the LORD your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies. 10 On the day of your gladness also, and at your appointed feasts, and at the beginnings of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; they shall serve you for remembrance before your God: I am the LORD your God."


Psalms 81: 2 Raise a song, sound the timbrel, the sweet lyre with the harp. 3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast day. (New moon was the first silver sliver seen, i.e. 1st of Nisan, and full moon was 14-15 days later i.e. Passover)


2 Chronicles 2:4 Behold, I am about to build a house for the name of the LORD my God and dedicate it to him for the burning of incense of sweet spices before him, and for the continual offering of the showbread, and for burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths and the new moons and the appointed feasts of the LORD our God, as ordained for ever for Israel.


2 Chronicles 8:12 Then Solomon offered up burnt offerings to the LORD upon the altar of the LORD which he had built before the vestibule, 13 as the duty of each day required, offering according to the commandment of Moses for the sabbaths, the new moons, and the three annual feasts--the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of weeks, and the feast of tabernacles.


Isaiah 66:22-23 "For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before me, says the LORD; so shall your descendants and your name remain. 23 From new moon to new moon, and from sabbath to sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, says the LORD.


Daniel 2:20-22 Daniel said: "Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever. to whom belong wisdom and might. 21 He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; 22 he reveals deep and mysterious things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. God is ultimately in charge. Praise the Lord! (I have used RSV throughout)


Jeremiah 6:17-19  Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, 'Listen to the sound of the trumpet!' But they said, 'We will not listen.'  Therefore hear, you nations, And know, O congregation, what is among them.  Hear, O earth!  Behold, I will certainly bring calamity on this people--The fruit of their thoughts, Because they have not heeded My words Nor My law, but rejected it. (NKJV)

Is 44:24-28 Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb: "I am the LORD, who made all things, who stretched out the heavens alone, who spread out the earth--Who was with me? -- 25 who frustrates the omens of liars, and makes fools of diviners; who turns wise men back, and makes their knowledge foolish; 26 who confirms the word of his servant, and performs the counsel of his messengers; who says of Jerusalem, 'She shall be inhabited,' and of the cities of Judah, 'They shall be built, and I will raise up their ruins'; 27 who says to the deep, 'Be dry, I will dry up your rivers'; 28 who says of Cyrus, 'He is my shepherd, and he shall fulfil all my purpose'; saying of Jerusalem, 'She shall be built,' and of the temple, 'Your foundation shall be laid.'" RSV


Is 45:1-4 Thus says the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have grasped, to subdue nations before him and ungird the loins of kings, to open doors before him that gates may not be closed: 2 "I will go before you and level the mountains, I will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut asunder the bars of iron, 3 I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hoards in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the LORD, the God of Israel, who call you by your name. 4 For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen, I call you by your name, I surname you, though you do not know me RSV


Ezra 4: 3 But Zerub'babel, Jeshua, and the rest of the heads of fathers' houses in Israel said to them, "You have nothing to do with us in building a house to our God; but we alone will build to the LORD, the God of Israel, as King Cyrus the king of Persia has commanded us RSV

New Moon Trumpet 537-538A.D.


537/538 AD


Dan 7:7-8 7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrible and dreadful and exceedingly strong; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. 8 I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots; and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.


Dan 7:24-25 As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, and another shall arise after them; he shall be different from the former ones, and shall put down three kings.25 He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, two times, and half a time. (1260 days/years) Prophecy reaching from 537/38 to 1798.


Daniel was a prophet of God thus a "mouth piece or trumpet"

A look at history


In 476 A.D. the Western Roman Empire had been taken over by these ten nations. (Exactly and only ten)

1. The VISIGOTHS in Spain. 

2. The OSTROGOTHS in Pannonia, now called Austria. {Latter Uprooted/Destroyed} 

3. The VANDALS in North Africa with their capital in Carthage. {Latter Uprooted/Destroyed} 

4. The BURGUNDIANS in West Switzerland, the Rhone valleys and Soane or Southeast Gaul (France). 

5. The LOMBARDS/BAVARIANS in Noricum, between the Ostrogoths and the Alemanni (and later Italy). 

6. The ANGLO-SAXONS in Britain. 

7. The FRANKS in Gaul, now called France. 

8. The ALEMANNI in North Switzerland, Swabia, Alsace and Lorraine. 

9. The HURULI in Italy. {Latter Uprooted/Destroyed} 

10. The SUEVI in what is now Portugal. Source: Horae Apocalypticae by Elliott (in Roy Anderson's book pg. 91 

Three discarded horns….The Papacy did away with Heruli in 493 A.D., the Vandals in 534 A.D. and the 


Ostrogoths in 538 A.D. (Heruli, under Odoacer, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths" Horae Apocalypticae, Vol 3 pg. pg. 134 note 1 by Edward B. Elliot, quoted in Daniel and our Times by R.J.Wieland pg. 96 Similarly said in Gibbons book The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire chapter 41)


Pope Vigilius reigned as pope from 537 to 555, is considered the first pope of the Byzantine Papacy. (Vigilius was known to be one of the most evil men in history...you can look him up on the internet.  He was a totally corrupt individual)



1505-1537/38 A.D.

Martin Luther Father of the Reformation called to be a priest June 1505


1505 Jun: Luther encountered a thunderstorm, made vow for safety ("Help me, St. Anne: I will become a monk" [St. Anne was the mother of Mary, the mother of Jesus.], and came through without harm. He wrote his father that the thunderstorm and vow were the will of God.


Sep: Luther gave away his possessions and entered the monastery of the Augustinian monks at Erfurt.


33.898 + years later:


October of 1536 Matthew's Bible was published

The first English Bible

to have the king's approval


The "Injunction of September 1538"

Decreed that the Great Bible be placed in every church in England


Matthew’s Bible (1537) (Bible.org)

In 1537, Matthew’s Bible appeared. This Bible was the work of John Rogers, whose pen name was Thomas Matthew. He combined Coverdale’s OT with Tyndale’s NT.28 But Rogers also added about 2000 notes, many of them controversial, making this the first revision of Tyndale’s NT. This Bible is sometimes called the "Wife-Beater’s Bible" because the marginal note at 1 Peter 3.7 says, "If [the wife] be not obedient and healpfull unto [her husband, he] endeavoureth to beate the feare of God into her…"! 29 That the moniker ‘Wife-Beater’s Bible’ was soon given to this version at least should comfort us that many of our ancestors also thought that this little comment was inappropriate! Although not related to this note, Rogers would become, in 1555, the first martyr to be burned at the stake under Mary Tudor—or ‘Bloody Mary’—the Catholic monarch. 30


The Great Bible (1539) (Bible.org)

Matthew’s and Coverdale’s Bibles both had Henry VIII’s permission to be printed. Stimulating their popularity but also instigating their demise, in September, 1538 the king ordered an English Bible to be placed in every church. The churches began to use the Matthew Bible because it was a large folio version suitable for public reading, while Coverdale’s had come out in a significantly smaller size. The king’s edict had in fact specified that each church was to have in its possession "one book of the whole Bible of the largest volume in English"—which ruled out all but Matthew’s

1535-1537 Myles Coverdale's Bible, used Tyndale's NT along with Latin and German versions, included Apocrypha at the end of the OT (like Luther's Bible of 1534) as was done in later English versions, 1537 edition received royal license, but banned in 1546 by Henry VIII.


Christian III of Denmark decreed Lutheranism state religion of Norway and Denmark 1537-1551 Matthew Bible, by John Rogers, based on Tyndale and Coverdale received royal license but not authorized for use in public worship, numerous editions, 1551 edition contained offensive notes (based on Tyndale) 1536-1541 Michelangelo paints the Last Judgement

The Great Reformation was a preparation for the 1844 movement. It opened the door for the Bible to be preached as well as printed. It was a call to holiness and a turning away from the worldliness that prevailed Christendom. It was a time of preparation for the 1st and 2nd angels message…
