The Feast of Trumpets pictures many events to happen when the Last Trump is blown. One of those events is the beginning of the Second Exodus, when God will deliver the remnant of the descendants of Israel being held in captivity from around the world to bring them to the Holy Land. This event shows God's great love and mercy toward His people as well as His faithfulness to His promises and prophecies.
