Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are aware that on September 22, 1827, Moroni delivered the gold plates to Joseph Smith. What many members may not know is this day was also the Feast of Trumpets, an ancient Jewish feast celebrated for thousands of years. Messages of Christ’s latest video explains this feast and its connection to the second coming of Christ.  

Throughout the scriptures, we read of various uses for the trumpet, including the announcement of the gathering of Israel. This 8-minute video will help members of the Church see that Moroni’s deliverance of the records that would become the Book of Mormon did not occur on a random date. Understanding the Feast of Trumpets will remind us when we see a statue of Moroni with a trumpet in hand, that now is the time to spiritually prepare for when Jesus Christ comes again.
