In my previous post I showed how God's feast called the Feast of Firstfruits had the symbolism within it of the lifting up and waving before God the sheaf of barley which represented Jesus being presented before God the Father on the Feast of Firstfruits at the same time the priest would be lifting up and waving the sheaf.
I then stated that pentecost has the 2 loaves being lifted up and waved which I believe is the church being presented before God
Now I want to look at the trumpet of God from Mt Sinai
First 2 articles I copied. You could also read an article I posted today that piggybacks Pineman's article on the last trump that he posted 2 days ago.
Q. I’m having difficulty verifying the mention of the Trumpet of God in Exodus 19. The only place I can find the phrase ‘trumpet of God’ is I Thes. 4. In Ex. 19, I see a ‘very loud trumpet blast’ in v. 16, and a ‘the sound of the trumpet’, in v. 19. Am I missing the ‘trumpet of God’? Is that in the Hebrew instead of the English?
A. You have to put a couple of details together to conclude that the Trumpet in Exodus 19 is the Trumpet of God. First, Exodus 19 doesn’t mention anyone on Earth blowing the trumpet. Second it only mentions God descending to the top of Mt. Sinai. So if the sound of the trumpet is coming from where God is and if He’s the only one there, then it must be the trumpet of God. Finally, the first time the trumpet is mentioned (Ex. 19:13) the Hebrew text contains a word that’s only translated trumpet in this verse. Normally either “terah”, as in Yom Terah (Feast of Trumpets) or shofar, as in ram’s horn, would be used. But in this verse we find a word that usually means jubilee. Put it all together and you have a good circumstantial case for the trumpet of Exodus 19 being the Trumpet of God.
The first time that "Jubilee" (Heb. yobel) is used in Scripture is in Exodus 19:13, where it is translated "trumpet." It is the day of Pentecost, the day when God spoke the Ten Commandments to the people on that first Pentecost at Sinai. So there is a peculiar connection between Pentecost and the Jubilee, hidden by the English translation of yobel as "trumpet."
So 2 points. First God sounded the trump at the giving of the Law on Pentecost. You could say it was the Trump of God. Second, the word for the trumpet is unique-it is the word jubilee. It is not the word terah or shophar - synonimous with the feast of trumpets.
Why would God use the word jubilee for His trumpet at the giving of the Law unless it was symbolic of a future jubilee tumpet sounded on a future Pentecost. Act 2 does not list the sound of the trumpet being blown when the Holy Spirit was given. So it must still be a future pentecost.
1 Thess 4:16-17 is talking about the Trump of God and meeting the Lord in the air. This is talking about the rapture. The same trumpet of God that He sounded on Mt Sinai on Pentecost.
The symbolism is all in pentecost. That is our rapture day. It is not the feast of trumpets. However Christ will return to earth on the feast of trumpets in 2015.
