Was Yeshua born on Yom Teruah/Trumpets?

Every once in awhile, we encounter people who insist that Yeshua was born on Yom Teruah/Trumpets.  But we urge people to please think about this logically:

YHWH doesn't do anything "out of sequence." This means, Yeshua HAD to be born before he could die and rise and fulfill all the feasts in sequence that lead up to his return.

Let’s check it out:

According to what we can see in the "New Testament," he was born on Sukkot/Tabernacles (remember, he was only here on earth temporarily and the Sukkot booths/sheds are just temporary dwellings), and he died on Passover (thus also fulfilling Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits and Shavuot).

The NEXT feast to be fulfilled after Shavuot (the giving of the Ruach haKodesh/Holy Spirit), is Yom Teruah/Trumpets, when YHWH calls His people together - who will then atone on the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur. After that comes the millennium, where he "tabernacles" among us for a thousand years...

Now, take a look at this: As you know, there are TWO Jewish new years. One falls on Yom Teruah/Rosh haShana, and the other on Passover (when Yeshua died).
Here's what I'm getting at:

Exodus 12: 1 ADONAI spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt; he said, 2 "You are to begin your calendar with this month; it will be the first month of the year for you.

In Exodus 12:1-2, Yahweh tells Moshe that the year from then on will begin "this month", but it is not for the purpose of counting years; rather, it is in commemoration of the momentous transformation, from slavery to physical liberation from Egypt!

WHO delivered us from the slavery of sin and debt? Yeshua, who was born on Sukkot, died on Passover and will return at the next Feast to be fulfilled, which is Yom Teruah (where YHWH calls His people together with a loud trump – which results in the "catching up" of believers - 1 Corinthians 6:14; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17).

So … If Yeshua was born on Yom Teruah, then how could he have fulfilled Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement, because he hadn't died yet! EVERYTHING would have been out of sequence, and YHWH doesn't work like that….
