The Trumpet Blast is a website dedicated to showing you how the biblical calendar works.  I never knew what a biblical calendar was until I started studying God’s feast (appointment times) a few years ago.  I was only familiar with the Gregorian calendar, which features the months of January through December.  Boy, was I amazed when I realized God has a totally different calendar of his own.  This is the calendar he has used since the creation of the world!  Just because the world doesn’t use it doesn’t mean he stopped using it!  When the Lord set apart a people for himself, he made sure they were well aware of his calendar.  His people were expected to meet with him on these special “dates”.  These appointment times are listed in Leviticus 23.

God’s calendar was also important for tuning into agricultural seasons, and seasons of repentance.  The biblical calendar also reminded the people when to rest, and when to mourn or rejoice.   The history of God’s people can be seen clearly in the biblical calendar.  As you study the happenings of history, you start to notice that certain events take place on important dates of the biblical calendar.   God uses his calendar to remind us of his past and future promises.

Through monthly blogs, my goal is to teach you what I have learned about the biblical calendar, and how you can apply it to your life.  This is not to be legalistic!  That is not my goal.  Following, or being aware of the biblical calendar, simply opens your eyes to God’s amazing plan for this world, and for both Christians and Jewish people alike.  The Gentiles and Jews are on the same branch of the olive tree and God’s calendar is for both of them.   As you start delving into God’s calendar you will see the past, present and future come to life.  You will see how God orders things.

The calendar we are on right now is created by man.  But God created this one.  So why not take a look at it.  I guarantee it will open your eyes!!!!

Why the name the TRUMPET BLAST????  The trumpet, or shofar blast, is used in the Bible to wake up God’s people.   It was used as an alarm and as a call to repentance.  It was used to usher in the Sabbath, as well as the Lord’s feasts (appointments).  One day it will usher in the return of Christ for his Bride, as well as his Second Coming.  If you are on God’s calendar, you will be wide awake when he returns.  I’m not saying you will know the exact date- no one knows this but the Father in heaven.  But, you will be aware of the season and it won’t take you by surprise.

STATEMENT OF FAITH:

I believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God.   God’s word is infallible and without error.   The Bible is the final authority on how we should live and behave, and it is the final authority when it comes to faith.

I believe God is the Creator of all things and he exists in three persons:  Father, Son and the Holy Spirit (Trinity).

I believe Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God and he came to Earth through a great miracle known as the virgin birth.  Jesus became a man and endured the hardships of being human on Earth.  Even though he was human, he was sinless.   Jesus became a man, but at the same time he was also God.  He came to Earth to reveal God to us, and to die on the cross for the sins of the world.  He became the perfect, unblemished lamb who was slain.  He became the sacrifice for us on the cross, and bore the curses of mankind.  After he died on the cross, he was buried, but he rose on the third day.   He defeated sin and death!   He is now exalted at the right hand of the Father in heaven.

Jesus defeated sin through his death, burial and resurrection.  He gives a gift to all those who receive him as Messiah.   This gift is the Holy Spirit and it dwells within all those who put their faith and trust in Jesus.  The Holy Spirit ministers to believers and convicts them of sin.  He encourages them and gives spiritual gifts to be used in the Kingdom of God.  The Holy Spirit is the believer’s seal in Christ Jesus.

Salvation is given to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  This is made possible through Jesus’ blood, shed on the cross.  A new birth occurs when a believer receives Christ and they are now set apart for the work of his Kingdom.

Jesus will return to the Earth and fully redeem it.   This time is set by the Father in Heaven.  The Bride of Christ awaits his glorious return, but until then we are to finish the race (work) that is set before us.  Maranatha!  Come, Lord Jesus Come.

 

If you are interested in having me speak at your church or small group, you can send me a message through the contact page, or you can email me directly at arodriguezusa@gmail.com.   I can present an engaging power point and interactive teaching on any of these topics:   The Feasts of the Lord, which include Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles.  Other feasts I can teach about are Hanukkah and Purim, as well as some of the minor feast days such as Tu B Shevat, or Tu B Av.  My goal in teaching these feasts is to show how Christ is clearly foreshadowed within the feasts themselves.   They are shadows of what he has done, and what he will do.  I also have teachings on Psalm 91, which is an amazing psalm of protection. In addition, I enjoy teaching biblical allegories which show archetypes of Christ, such as the story of Joseph, Jericho and the story of Boaz and Ruth, to name a few.

I have another website, which goes into prophecy and current events in Israel and the United States, called 67owls.com.  You can also contact me through that website.
