Pro and Con 1820
THE BROKEN HEART OF NORTH AMERICA
The pointed depths were such a surprise to me, I had to try to find out how such a thing could happen. No surface glacier could have done that.
North America has a 1200-mile Midcontinent Rift System, the Keweenawan Rift, a great complex gash that reaches from the Great Lakes to Kansas. Originally volcanic, the upwelling of molten rock left gabbro, granite and basalt. We can see basalt cliffs along the St. Croix River. A hotspot was in the Lake Superior region. Something big was taking place in Earth's interior.
After nearly splitting the continent, for some reason the rift failed, or we would have had ocean there instead of lakes. That Midcontinent Rift is the deepest healed rift yet found. It has produced between 1 and 2 million cubic kilometres of basalt, one of the world's largest deposits.
Maybe the compressional force that stopped the rift in Proterozoic North America is the Grenville Orogeny, a continent-to-continent collision.
Today, I-80, between Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska, runs over the center of the rift.
THE SETTING OF THE MIRACLE PLAY, "THE REVELATION OF JESUS
CHRIST," SEEMS TO BE TEN DAYS BEFORE THE MID-TRIB RAPTURE
By Marilyn Agee
We might be close to the First-Trump Rapture now. The Feast of Trumpets will be Sept. 25, Thu. Tishri 1, 5775, a Sabbatic Year within the last tetrad that lands on Feast days for at least 400 years. However, I checked Your Sky, and the sign of the Moon under Virgo's feet will not appear until Sat. Sept. 27. The Hebrew Calendar can be off a bit because of the Postponements introduced by Hillel II.
However, Mat 24:20 says, "But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day".
Mid-Trib is at hand in both the first and last chapters of The Revelation of Jesus Christ.
Rev_1:3 says, "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for THE TIME IS AT HAND."
Rev_22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for THE TIME IS AT HAND."
Rev 1:19 gives the outline of this miracle-play. It says, "Write the things which thou hast seen (i.e., before the First-Trump Rapture), and the things which are (at the time of the First-Trump Rapture), and the things which shall be hereafter" (after the First-Trump Rapture).
YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS
Rev 2:10 says, "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION TEN DAYS: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
Rev 22:11-21 says, "He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first (YHWH) and the last (JESUS). 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I COME QUICKLY. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
THE PREVIEW OF THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST SHOWS THAT WE ARE "IN TRIBULATION" WHEN THE RAPTURE TAKES PLACE
John was chosen to be both actor and narrator in the miracle-play, The Revelation of Jesus Christ. In the Preview, he gave us necessary information about the Rapture.
The time is set. We are "in tribulation."
The First-Trump Rapture is on the Day of Christ, which seems to be Mid-Trib.
The Last-Trump Rapture is on the Day of the Lord, the last day of the Tribulation.
Like our movie producers today, Jesus started out his dramatic miracle play with a Preview. In the Preview, John is writing to us. It looks like we are in the first half of the Tribulation now.
In Rev 1:9-11, John, meaning Jehovah is gracious, said, "I John, who also am your brother, and COMPANION IN TRIBULATION, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (i.e., the DAY OF CHRIST), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first (YHWH) and the last (Jesus)".
THE DAY OF CHRIST, THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE AT MID-TRIB
Php_1:10, says, "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till THE DAY OF CHRIST (i.e., the day of the First-Trump Rapture)".
Php_2:16, says, "Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in THE DAY OF CHRIST, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."
2Th_2:2, says, "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that THE DAY OF CHRIST is at hand."
MID-TRIB JUDGMENT SENDS JEZEBEL INTO GREAT TRIBULATION
Rev_2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her (Jezebel of Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery (i.e., join) with her into GREAT TRIBULATION, except they repent of their deeds."
Then that judgment of who to take and who to leave behind will be made MID-TRIB. When the First-trump Rapture is at hand, we are near the mid-point of the 7-year Tribulation. The Great Tribulation is the last 3.5 years, the part that is to be shortened.
Mat_24:22 says, "And except those days (i.e., the Great Tribulation, the last 3.5 years of the Tribulation) should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
Mar_13:20 says, "And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days."
THE DAY OF CHRIST, DAY OF THE LORD JESUS
THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I THESS. 4:13-18 MAY TAKE PLACE ON THE DAY OF CHRIST, ALSO CALLED THE DAY OF THE LORD JESUS, MID-TRIB
I Th 4:13-18 says, "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren (believers), concerning them which are asleep (koimai, deceased), that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent (phthano, precede) them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with THE TRUMP OF GOD: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
1Co_5:5, says, "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the DAY OF THE LORD JESUS."
2Co_1:14, says, "As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the DAY OF THE LORD JESUS."
GOD'S TWO WITNESSES, MOSES AND ELIJAH
Mal_4:5, says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful DAY OF THE LORD" (i.e., the first day of Christ's millennial rule).
Moses and Elijah witness during the last half of the Tribulation, the 1260 days between the "RISE" of Rev. 11:1, which is the same as the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1, and the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 11:12.
Rev 4:1 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, COME UP HITHER, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."
Rev 11:1 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein."
Rev 11:12 says, "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them,
COME UP HITHER, And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them."
Rev 10:11 says, "Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings." Therefore, the "Rise" of Rev. 11:1 is the same as the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1.
Zec 4:11-14 says, "Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof? 12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves? 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth."
Mar 9:2-4 says, "And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. 3 And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. 4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus."
These two anointed ones, Elijah and Moses, stood by Jesus, the Lord of the whole earth.
Mal_4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD".
Moses and Elijah will probably come at the time of the First-Trump Rapture, i.e., Mid-Trib, prophesy 1260 days, the time that is to be shortened, then ascend.
DAY OF THE LORD
THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE OF I COR 15:51-55 TAKES PLACE ON THE DAY OF THE LORD, THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, AT THE END OF THE SHORTENED GREAT TRIBULATION
1Co 15:51-55 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We (including Paul) shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMP (of God, the first trump of God is in I Thess 4:16): for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we (i.e., all the saints) shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption (i.e., at either Rapture), and this mortal must put on immortality (only after the last Rapture). 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?"
Act_2:20, says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable DAY OF THE LORD come:
1Th_5:2, says, "For yourselves know perfectly that the DAY OF THE LORD so cometh as a thief in the night.
2Pe_3:10, says, "But the DAY OF THE LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
Rev_7:14, says, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Deu 4:30,31 says, "When thou art IN TRIBULATION, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them."
These will be caught up in the Last-Trump Rapture on the Day of God's Wrath at the end of the Tribulation.
THE DAY OF THE LORD, DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, A DESTRUCTION FROM THE ALMIGHTY
Isa_2:12, says, "For the DAY OF THE LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low".
Isa_13:6, says, "Howl ye; for DAY OF THE LORD is at hand; it shall come as a DESTRUCTION from the Almighty."
Isa_13:9, 10 says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, cruel both with WRATH and fierce ANGER, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
Isa 13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil".
Isa_34:8, says, "For it is the DAY OF THE LORD'S VENGEANCE, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion (tsiyon, as a permanent capital)."
Jer_12:12 says, "The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness: for the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace."
Jer_46:10, says, "For this is the DAY OF THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS, A DAY OF VENGEANCE, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country BY THE RIVER EUPHRATES."
Jer_50:2, the verse I saw a rectangle of light on, says, "Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces."
Jer_50:23 says, "How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH cut asunder and broken! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!"
Babylon will be obliterated when Satan's home, the asteroid WORMWOOD, impacts Earth at Babylon, near the Euphrates River, in Iraq.
Jer 50:24,25 says, "I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD. 25 The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons (i.e., two asteroids, one as big as a mountain, the other Satan's dwelling place on WORMWOOD) of his indignation (ZAAM, FROTH AT THE MOUTH FURY): for this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans."
Jer_50:35 says, "A sword (i.e., the sword of the Lord) is upon the Chaldeans, saith the LORD, and upon the inhabitants of Babylon, and upon her princes, and upon her wise men."
Rev 18:21 says, "And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
Lam_2:22, says, "Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the DAY OF THE LORD'S ANGER none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed."
Eze_13:5, says, "Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the DAY OF THE LORD."
Eze_30:3, says, "For the day is near, even the DAY OF THE LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen."
Joe_1:15, says, "Alas for the day! for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."
Joe_2:1, says, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand".
Joe_2:11, says, "And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the DAY OF THE LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"
Joe_2:31, says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible DAY OF THE LORD come."
Rev 6:12,17 says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.... 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"
Joe_3:14, says, "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the DAY OF THE LORD is near in the valley of decision."
Amo_5:18, says, "Woe unto you that desire the DAY OF THE LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light."
Amo_5:20, says, "Shall not the DAY OF THE LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?"
Oba_1:15, says, "For the DAY OF THE LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head."
Zep_1:7, says, "Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the DAY OF THE LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests."
Zep_1:8, says, "And it shall come to pass in the DAY OF THE LORD'S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel."
Zep_1:14, says, "The great DAY OF THE LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the DAY OF THE LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly."
Zep_1:18, says, "Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the DAY OF THE LORD'S WRATH; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land."
Zep_2:2, 3 says, "Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the DAY OF THE LORD'S anger come upon you. 3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: IT MAY BE YE SHALL BE HID IN THE DAY OF THE LORD'S anger."
Zec_14:1, says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee."
Satan's asteroid Wormwood will hit Babylon. It will come in from the north and kindle fires in Russia.
Jer_51:48 says, "Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD."
Jer_50:46 says, "At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved, and the cry is heard among the nations."
Jer_51:37 says, "And Babylon shall become heaps, a dwellingplace for dragons, an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant."
Jer_51:42 says, "The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof."
Jer_51:49 says, "As Babylon hath caused the slain of Israel to fall, so at Babylon shall fall the slain of all the earth."
Babylon may become the Lake of Fire.
Rev 19:1-3 says, "And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever."
Rev_19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
TWO PILLARS IN FRONT OF THE TEMPLE, JACHIN AND BOAZ, STAND FOR THE SAINTS THAT WILL BE CAUGHT UP IN THE TWO RAPTURES
Rev 3:10-12 says, "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."
2Ch_3:17 says, "And he reared up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of that on the right hand Jachin (meaning whom God strengthens), and the name of that on the left Boaz (fleetness)."
Rev 3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches."
TWO PILLARS, TWO RAPTURES, NEITHER ONE AT THE SECOND ADVENT
In Rev. 3:12,13, Jesus said to the Philadelphian church, "Him that overcometh will I make a PILLAR IN THE TEMPLE of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is NEW JERUSALEM, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches".
In the Bible's wonderful symbolism, believers are to be made "a pillar in the temple of my God". Each of the pillars in front of the temple, BOAZ and JACHIN, representing the saints of the two Raptures, was crowned with an oil basin, i.e., a lamp. They looked like huge torches. This reminds me of the wise virgins that have enough oil in their vessels with their lamps. I Ki. 7:41 mentions "The two pillars, and the TWO BOWLS OF THE CHAPITERS (CAPITALS) THAT WERE ON THE TOP OF THE TWO PILLARS."
The capitals were shaped like LILIES. I Kings 7:19,21 says, "the chapiters that were upon the top of the pillars were OF LILY WORK...And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: and he set up the right pillar, and called the name thereof Jachin (he establishes, he sets up): and he set up the left pillar, and called the name thereof Boaz" (meaning LOVELY, FLEETNESS AND STRENGTH). Boaz was the kinsman redeemer to Ruth.
I think these two pillars represent the two Raptures. Israel was to grow "as the lily." Hosea 14:5 says, "I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily". It seems that the pillar Jachin represents the Rapture of the 144,000 Israelites, which, along with the great multitude that cannot be numbered, take part in the 2nd Rapture, the "last trump." The Pre-Wrath Rapture will be when Christ sets up his millennial kingdom. If the pillar Jachin represents the "last trump" (I Cor. 15:51-53), the pillar Boaz represents the first "trump of God" (I Thess. 4:16). This is the Pre-Trib Rapture, and the Bride is lovely. She is dressed in white, like a gorgeous white lily.
The Bride is called a lily in Song of Solomon 2:2,10. It says, "As the LILY among thorns, so is MY LOVE among the daughters....My beloved spake, and said unto me, RISE UP, MY LOVE, MY FAIR ONE, AND COME AWAY".
That sounds like the First-Trump Rapture to me.
Song 6:2,3 says, "My beloved (Christ) IS GONE DOWN into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to GATHER LILIES. I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine: he feedeth among the LILIES."
Song 7:2 says, Thy belly is like an heap of wheat set about with LILIES." Abundant lilies grow wild in the wheat fields. Boaz, a type of Christ, the kinsman redeemer, chose Ruth (meaning friendship, filled, satisfied), type of the Bride of Christ, for his wife during the time of winnowing barley. The marriage followed soon afterward. At the present time, we are like Ruth at the feet of Boaz, remaining faithful and waiting patiently to be chosen. We know that those with Christ at the first Rapture are "called, and chosen, and faithful" (Rev. 17:14). Even after being chosen, Ruth had to wait awhile to be married.
Rev_19:7 says, "Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready."
MY REPLY TO AN EMAIL WITH URL IN IT: http://waitingforjesus.com/jewishfeastsprophecy.html
Thanks for the counter. We may be just about to be caught up in the First-Trump Rapture. I sure hope this Feast of Trumpets is our Rapture date. I have been waiting for this day half of my life.
I am happy how my life is turning out. I said, "Yes" to Jesus and "Yes" to Ed when he asked me to marry him. Now, I will get to be with both of them forever. I can't think of anything better.
*** Passover - pictures the Death of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of Unleavened Bread - pictures the Burial of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of First Fruits - pictures the Resurrection of Christ
*** Pentecost - pictures the Descent of the Holy Spirit & the Birth of the Church
*** Feast of the Trumpets - pictures the Rapture of the Church
*** Feast of Atonement - pictures the Second Coming of Jesus Christ
*** Feast of Tabernacles - pictures the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ
Below is my list. Jesus was three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Mat_12:40 says, "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth."
Preparation of the Passover - Thursday, April 6, 30 AD (Julian) - Crucifixion, day 1
Passover - Friday - April 7 - Passover - night 1 - day 2
Saturday - April 8 - Unleavened Bread - night 2 - day 3
Sunday - April 9 - Firstfruits - Resurrection - night 3
FEASTS STILL TO BE FULFILLED
Trumpets, hopefully, First-Trump Rapture, Sept 25, 2014, 1st day of Sabbatical Year 5775
Day of Atonement, maybe the announcement of the coming Jubilee Year and Second Advent on Nisan 1, Apr 9, 2016, anniversary of resurrection of Jesus on April 9, 30 AD
Tabernacles - Time of Rejoicing - Time of living in booths for survivors, probably because every wall will fall on the Day of God's Wrath
DATES OF THE LAST TETRAD THAT FALLS ON FEAST DAYS FOR 500 YEARS
2014, April 15 [5774, Nisan 15] Feast of Unleavened Bread (Jews call it Passover)
2014, October 08 [5775, Tishrei 14] Eve of Tabernacles
2015, April 04 [5775, Nisan 15] Feast of Unleavened Bread (Jews call it Passover)
2015, September 28 [5776, Tishrei 15] Tabernacles
Lev 23:4-6 says, "These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. 5 In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S passover. 6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread."
The past is proof that important events happen near or during these special tetrads. We are between the first two dates in the last tetrad now. This Feast of Trumpets seems like an excellent time for the First-Trump Rapture.
The next Feast of Trumpets might be the Day of God's Wrath, because the Great Tribulation is to be shortened. 1st of Tishri, 5776 = Mon, 14 September 2015
There will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on the Eve of Trumpets, Sept 13, 2015. Will it usher in the great Day of God's wrath? If so, it will also usher in the Last-Trump Rapture.
Rev 6:12-17 says, "And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and THE SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR, AND THE MOON BECAME AS BLOOD; 13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; and who shall be able to stand?"
The Lord furnishes us examples.
2Sa 22:10-21 says, "He bowed the heavens also, and came down; and darkness was under his feet. 11 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind. 12 And he made darkness pavilions round about him, dark waters, and thick clouds of the skies. 13 Through the brightness before him were coals of fire kindled. 14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice. 15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them. 16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. 17 HE SENT FROM ABOVE, HE TOOK ME; he drew me out of many waters; 18 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. 19 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. 20 He brought me forth also into a large place (i.e., Heaven is a large planet): he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 21 The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. 22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God."
After the Day of God's Wrath has come, we see the 144,000 Israelites, and a great multitude so great it can't be counted, in Heaven.
Rev 7:9-15 says, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen. 13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? 14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes (i.e., then this includes the Laodiceans), and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God".
If that Feast of Trumpets is the Day of God's Wrath, the Jubilee Year will be announced on the following Day of Atonement, and Jesus should return on the following Nisan 1, 5776, the first day of the Sacred, Regnal and Jubilee years. To me, it is amazing to think that he might return on the anniversary of his resurrection, April 9. That took some planning, and he planned everything before the world began.
Lev_25:9-13 says, "Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 10 And ye shall hallow the FIFTIETH YEAR (i.e., which will start the following Nisan 1), and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. 11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. 12 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. 13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession."
