In the Book of Exodus, Chapter 19, the first blast of a horn was heard from God at Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:16-19). God spoke to the People of Israel and established what is now known as the Mosaic Covenant (Exodus 19:3-6, 7-13). It was through the blast of the horn that God called the attention of the People of Israel.
He had them examine themselves so that they could be purified before coming towards His presence. However, we later come to learn that it was too hard for all of the People of Israel to keep the Mosaic Covenant, so God would introduce a “new covenant” (Jeremiah 31:3-17). Essentially the new covenant would be fully enabling through the redeeming work of Jesus (Ephesians 3:3-7).
For many years know, Yom Teruah has been observed by people from around the world. God continues to call the attention of the People of Israel but both believers and sinners as well. He calls them from looking at themselves and their “world-view” to looking at Him and through “Heaven’s Eyes”. He calls them into repentance, forgiveness, embracing, and adoption into His family (Romans 8:14-17). God desires His best for all people who submit to His Son, Jesus. He desires for all of them to be ready for the last trumpet call so that He may take them home to be with Him for eternity.
Today, where ever you are, pause for a moment, and examine yourself. Is there something that is getting in the way of your relationship with God through Jesus? Whatever that thing may be, work with His Spirit, so that it may be brought into the light. Now, with a sincere heart, bring it to the feet of Jesus and ask Him for forgiveness. Allow the Holy Spirit to renew you into the righteousness of Jesus, by which we can all come into the presence of God. Now simply thank Him and Praise Him at this time.
Rich Blessings and Peace to You
