But the Lord has spoken specifically about the feast of

trumpets to Moses,

“Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of

agony of my heart! My heart pounds within me, I cannot keep

silent. For I have heard the sound of the trumpet; I have heard

the battle cry. Disaster follows disaster; the whole land lies in

ruins. In an instant my tents are destroyed, my shelter in a

sound of the trumpet”

(Jer. 4:19-21)?

“Lift up a banner in the land! Blow the trumpet among the

horrific end time event. It describes the coming battle of Arma-
