(By Ron Allen) A small comet, 21-P/Giancobini-Zinner, will make its closest approach to Earth during the week of the Feast of Trumpets. The Hebrew Feast of Trumpets occurs on the first day of the seventh month of the religious year. It is also the first day of the Hebrew secular year and is also known as Rosh Hashanah, meaning “the head of the year”. For the Christians, the feast of trumpets is one of the seven feasts of Israel, with the three spring feasts showing Christ’s coming, the Feast of Pentecost showing the coming of the Church, and the three fall feasts showing Christ’s Second Coming.

The Feast of Trumpets is a prophetic representation of the trumpet call of God and the Second Coming of Christ (1 Cor. 15:52 and 1 Thess. 4:16). Like the Hebrew feasts, the way in the heavens declaring the glory of God (Ps. 19:1-4), which we call the Star Bible, moves from the advent of Christ through the Church Age to the Second Coming of Christ. The portion of the Star Bible corresponding to the Feast of Trumpets is the constellation Taurus (The Bull) which pictures a bull, the ancient symbol of power. In Hebrew, the constellation name means “coming”, and in Egyptian it meant “who saves.” READ MORE
