Meaning of the Feast of Trumpets
The Bible explains that the Old Testament law was only a shadow.
The old system under the Law of Moses was only a shadow, a dim preview of the good things to come, not the good things themselves.
Hebrews 10:1 (NLT)
In other words, the laws established during the time of Moses were prophecies—including the Feast of Trumpets. For prophecy to be fulfilled, one day can equal one year (Ezekiel 4:6). Thus, the ten days of trumpet blasts represented ten years of preaching to herald the second coming of Christ.
William Miller led the Advent Movement for Jesus’ Second Coming from 1834 to 1844. For ten years—until the fulfillment of the Day of Atonement on October 22, 1844—people preached about Christ’s second coming.
Thus, God fulfills His work even using those who do not know about the feasts of God.
But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if my followers didn’t say these things, then the stones would cry out.”
Luke 19:40 (NCV)
