About the Event
Every new moon is celebrated by the Hebrews on the first day of each month, and on these evenings trumpets are blown over the peace offerings (Numbers 10:10). The priests were commanded to blow trumpets every month during times of war as well as during times of peace (Numbers 10:9).
The blowing of trumpets was a symbol of war, and for the Hebrew people, it was also a cry for help from God during warfare. During times of peace, they were to blow the trumpets on every New Moon festival and on every Day of Trumpets, as a remembrance that during times of war, Elohim hears their cries and delivers them from their enemies (Numbers 10:9-10). In other words, the trumpets were a sound of deliverance. Additionally, we see trumpets blown in Heaven as the Lamb of God breaks the seals of the Book of Life symbolising a countdown of sorts to the end of this age of sin and despair.
