Gods Holy Feast Days

All Gods Holy Feast Days have a three-fold meaning revolving around the past, present and future. There is so much to learn within the feast days Im sure entire books have been written.
The feast days are a blueprint for Gods plan. The Holy Days not only reveal God's plan of salvation for all humanity but show the plan of salvation is universal, as are the Holy Days. They progressively provide hope for all humans as God's boundless love is made available through their fulfillment. Leviticus 23:4: "These are the feasts of the Lord," not just the feasts of Israel.
We must add to this the Sabbath day of Rest for we are commanded to keep it Holy
Its hard to express all the teachings within the feasts for both Jew and Christian.

Of the 7 Holy Feasts the Spring Feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread and First Fruits and Pentecost
While having a past partial fulfilment of coming out of Egypt etc. also had a final fulfillment in Christ's First coming
being fulfilled by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.

Fifty days later at Shavuot or Pentecost, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to fill and baptize his followers.

The three Fall Feasts of The Feast of Trumpets, The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and The Feast of Tabernacles
Will have their final fulfillment in the second coming. Christ's return is expected on some future Feast of Trumpts

Feast of Trumpets

In ancient Israel, trumpets were blown to assemble the congregation when it went to war, on feast days and on other special occasions (Numbers 10:1-10). The blowing of trumpets could signal a time of alarm or a time of joy and rejoicing. The Feast of Trumpets marked the beginning of the great fall harvest in ancient Israel, a commanded time of rejoicing and thanksgiving before God.

In the New Testament, the sounding of trumpets marks a time of great contrasts. On the one hand, the seven trumpet plagues are poured out on the unrepentant inhabitants of the earth (Revelation 8:6, Revelation 9:21). And on the other hand, the sounding of the seventh trumpet marks the completion of the mystery of God (Revelation 10:7).

Paul explains the mystery: "Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed" (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).
So the sounding of trumpets in the New Testament parallels that of the Old Testament. Trumpets may be a time of great travail or a time of great victory.
