A trumpet call

A trumpet call


This is the season of the Jewish Autumn Feasts. These feasts are not just for Jewish people, they are God’s feast times and an invitation to all people to return to Him and enjoy what He wants to show us at this appointed time. We do not have to keep ritualistic traditions, which are a heavy yoke, but we are to look for the significance of these special set apart times and expect God to come into our world with His miraculous power. You can find these feasts explained in  Leviticus chapter 23 in our Old Testament. God’s day begins with the evening and then the morning.

Genesis 1 v 5

And God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.

This is why the feasts begin at sundown of the previous day.

On the evening of 29th September it was the Feast of Trumpets called Rosh HaShanah in Hebrew and it signifies the beginning of a new year or a new way. A trumpet is an alarm call, a warning to return from our old rebellious ways and return to the God of Israel, the Creator of heaven and earth. The Jewish people then have 10 days of repentance, also known as days of awe, as in fear and awe of God. This  leads to the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur, and this year it was on October 9th but began the evening before.

In ancient Israel the High Priest would enter the holiest part of the temple called the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement. This could only be accessed once a year by the High Priest who would sacrifice an unblemished animal to pay for the sins of the whole nation. This ritual represents what Jesus did for us by taking all our sin and mistakes onto Himself and then dying on the cross instead of us. He was without sin, completely unblemished and so He has paid the price for us. He is our High Priest, He went before God the Judge and took our punishment upon Himself, so we could go free. What amazing love given freely to all, even when we turn away from Him and go our own way.

On the evening of 13th October, the Feast of Tabernacles begins and lasts for 8 days. This feast commemorates the 40 year wilderness journey of the people of Israel. They build temporary shelters to remind them of how their ancestors lived in the desert. They eat and some sleep out in them during the first 7 days. In the synagogues, the Jewish people read the end of the Torah, the first five books of our Christian Bible, and then return to the beginning to read Genesis.

The number 7 means completeness and represents a complete length of time when we are wandering in the desert without fully understanding God’s ways and so we do our own thing. But because of God’s tremendous love for us, if we choose to accept Jesus’ sacrifice and turn from our old ways, God will send His Holy Spirit to lead us out of the desert and into the promised land. The number 8 means new beginnings and represents our life being joined by God. He comes and makes His home in our hearts and we become one with Him. He comes and lives with us and the miraculous power of God is released in and through us, He tabernacles or dwells with us, the power is Him, the manifest presence of God.

Now begins a new chapter when we walk with our God. All the promises in the Bible will come true once we have turned away from our past with our pride and rebellion, when we realise we can do nothing without Our Lord and King. People will be transformed through going through their own desert journey and will come into a place of abundance and joy, a place where healing and reconciliation are normal, a place where we experience God’s love personally, hear His voice, live in peace and rest from all our works and do only the works that He has destined us to do. These works will be done with ease and we will love to carry out these works because they will be tailor made for us by the God who created us and knows us better than we know ourselves.

WOW! We are called to believe and receive His promises only, He will do all the work but we have to turn from our wicked ways and believe. The fullness of this promise will be seen when Jesus physically returns to this earth and makes everything new but we can also experience a lot of this now, if only we believe and receive. We will still live in a broken world but we will live in an inner peace and joy whatever situation we might be in.

Last night as my husband and I were watching the news, a video was shown of a young boy dying of aids due to contamination of blood products, the boy was a haemophiliac. I recognised the backing track to this video as the same one used in one of my poems, it was ONE IN MESSIAH. Listen to this poem, a prophetic word for this time.

It is when we come together in unity that we will see the miracles, it is when we look with awe to God that we will see change in our countries.

Our country is in chaos and division at this time and yet God loves us and He will use this painful time to bring good.

I heard the Lord say this today, at this appointed time. Please test this as I can be wrong, all prophetic words must be tested with the truth as seen in the Bible.


I am about to pour out My love upon this earth, upon the United Kingdom. I have been very displeased with them and I have been sorely grieved. But intercession (prayer) has been made, and I have heard. I hereby remove my judgment over this land and I will bring My healing touch. Chaos and rebellion will die down as I work My miraculous power on behalf of this land. Out of the ashes, I will birth something new and I will bring back the awe and fear of the Lord.

Waves and waves of the fear and awe of God will move over this land. Hostile tongues will be stilled as those full of pride fall and make way for those I have appointed. I have spoken and I will do it.
