WHY PENTECOST IS TIED TO THE RAPTURE


 In this short article, I’m going to present several reasons why Pentecost or Shavuot, which is between June 3rd and 8th in 2014 depending on the calendar, is better tied to the Rapture than the Feast of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah. First of all, Pentecost or Shavuot was the day that Moses received the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai just after the mass Israelite Exodus from Egypt. This is when Yahweh God came down upon the Mountain in a cloud of smoke, lightning, thunder, and fire, and spoke with a voice that sounded like a Trumpet. See Exodus, Chapter 19 in your Bible to read about that glorious past day.

On that first Pentecost of significance, God’s voice was tied to the Trumpet blasts. In addition, God’s Trumpet-like Voice was meant to be a sign that all of Israel should present themselves before God at the foot of the Mountain to be set apart as a nation of priests! Many thanks to Gina Lollar McCray for bringing the Trumpet of the first Pentecost to my attention again. Here is a link to the great article she wrote about it:

SCRIPTURALLY, THE RAPTURE’S “TRUMPET CALL
OF GOD” APPEARS TO BE ON SHAVUOT/PENTECOST!

Likewise, in the Catching Away described by Paul, we will hear the Trumpet call of God and be caught up by holy angels to meet Yahshua in the air:
“For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
At the time of the Rapture, we will become a nation of priests and kings with Christ, and will serve with Him for a thousand years on Earth after the Great Tribulation. This shows that there is a direct correlation between the events of the Rapture and the events on the first biblically significant Pentecost in the lives of the Israelites.

In addition, God later required in His Law that all the men of Israel should present themselves before God three times a year. One of those times was on Shavuot or Pentecost, along with Pesach or Passover, and on the first day of the Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles. As such, Pentecost is tied to the action of being presented before God as His righteous servant, which those who are taken in the Rapture will surely be!

Another fascinating analogy tying the Rapture to Pentecost can be found in that, if Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets is the beginning of the Jewish Civil Year, it is the not the last but the FIRST Trumpet of the year, while Pentecost or Shavuot is the last feast day before then. Therefore, the Trumpet blown on Pentecost is the REAL LAST TRUMPET of the year, which Paul mentioned in 1 Thessalonians 4 in relation to the Catching Away or Rapture!

Now, Jewish legends and the Book of the Secrets of Enoch state that the righteous man, prophet and patriarch/king named Enoch in the Pre-Flood line of Seth was caught up to Heaven in a whirlwind by Yahweh God on Shavuot or Pentecost. At the time that he experienced this Rapture-like event, Enoch did not experience death, but was brought into the presence of Yahweh - most likely meaning the Pre-incarnate Yahshua - to dwell in a heavenly Paradise and to serve God as His “Scribe of Righteousness”. Likewise, the repentant robber that was crucified with Christ was promised to be with Yahshua in Paradise on the very day of their deaths in another allusion to the Rapture.

There are therefore many clear reasons why Pentecost is better tied to the Rapture than the Feast of Trumpets, aka Rosh Hashanah. To see even more fascinating and deep reasons why the Rapture may be better tied to Pentecost than the Feast of Trumpets, see my recent article linked to below:

The Case For A Mid-Tribulation Rapture

Since we are now in the period of the Blood Moon Tetrad on Jewish Feasts marking 2014 and 2015 as highly significant to both Houses of Israel (i.e. Judah and Ephraim, or the Church), this could very well be the year of the Rapture! So keep looking up, especially over this next seven days through to June 8th or Pentecost, for it could very well be the time of the fulfillment of Our Blessed Hope, which is to be together in the presence of Yahshua forever! (See Titus 2:12-14)

In the meantime, if you are not sure about the truth of the Rapture, I recommend reading a past blog article I wrote in its defense, which also links to another article defending the doctrine of the Catching Away or Rapture. Here is the Title and link to it:

Scripture Supports A Rapture Before The Great Tribulation!

MARANATHA! 
Yahshua our beloved Messiah is coming very soon,
maybe even sometime this week! Hallelu-Yah! :-D
