WHY THE RAPTURE MAY NOT BE ON THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS!

As the graphic above states, the Ten Commandments were given on Pentecost or Shavuot as part of God's Marriage Covenant with the Israelites. But God cut a New Marriage Covenant with mankind when His Son Yahshua or Jesus, who is our Passover Lamb, died on the Cross for our sins on the eve of Passover. This Covenant will be fulfilled at the Wedding of the Lamb of God in Heaven that is mentioned in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 19. This will occur after the Rapture of the Bride of Christ and the Five Wise Virgins, who will be caught up to Heaven after they are given their incorruptible resurrected bodies.

At that time, the once Gentile, adopted Israelite Bride of Christ will marry Yahshua and symbolically be united as One New Man with the Jews who believe in Him in Holy Matrimony. After all, a wedding is the marriage of a man and a woman to become ONE FLESH in the process of procreation! So the One New Man mentioned by Paul in Ephesians, Chapter 2 is the fulfilled God/Man Yahshua and the Jews united to His PERFECT WIFE! Due to this, the Feast of Pentecost or Shavuot can be seen as the Symbol of our Betrothal to Christ via the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, which is given to all who are spiritually baptized in Christ and born again.

Due to this - and several others reasons that I will go over in a moment - I do not believe the Rapture has to be on Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets in the autumn. One of those "other reasons" is that Yahshua said that no one would know the day or hour of His return, and I do NOT believe that this is just a reference to the two days of the Feast of Trumpets, although this teaching is very popular among Messianic Jews and certain segments of the Church.

The main reasons given for thinking the Rapture, Harpazo, or Catching Away may be associated with the Feast of Trumpets alone has to do with the unpredictability of the Feast, which calls for the blowing of the shofar or ram's horn trumpet to announce a solemn assembly before God. The Feast of Trumpets, which is also known as Rosh Hashanah, falls on two days, and it is only considered to have officially arrived after the New Moon has been spotted in Jerusalem. Although these appear to be good reasons to tie the Feast of Trumpets to the Apostle Paul's reference to the "Last Trump" that will signal the time of the Rapture mentioned in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 15, the fact is that all the Jewish Feasts are considered to be more than one day, and all are connected to the cycles of the Moon. Furthermore, the priests in Jerusalem blew the shofar on all the Jewish Feasts, as well as at the New Moons, and not just on the Feast of Trumpets.

Second, Yahshua did not ascend to Heaven on Pentecost or Shavuot, but ten days prior for a REASON. I think the reason is as follows: remember that Shavuot originally commemorated the giving of the Law at Mount Sinai, when God's voice sounded like a Trumpet, and the Israelites were seen as spiritually married to God. Therefore, the Feast of Shavuot under the New Covenant could be meant to commemorate the fulfillment of the Betrothal of the Church to Christ with the Rapture to attend the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, as well as the Bride of Christ's presence at Yahshua's side during His glorious Return to conquer the wicked before His Millennial Kingdom.

Third, humanity has always viewed the month of June especially as the most auspicious Wedding month, and Shavuot or Pentecost usually falls in early to mid June. This Feast therefore ties in to the Song of Solomon's references to the Rapture. These references mention lilies and the Rose of Sharon, which begin to bloom in the late spring and early summer. Fascinatingly, the Antechamber in the Great Pyramid signifying the Tribulation period has an exit passage that opens in to the King's Chamber signifying Christ's Millennial Rule, and that exit doorway has a calendar date attached to it, which I found after being given a revelation from the Holy Spirit. This date is June 1st, 2016, which is exactly ten days before Shavuot in the Jewish Calendar year 5776 - or 2016 on the Gregorian Calendar. To find out how I came to this discovery in the Great Pyramid Antechamber, read my article linked to below:

A New Revelation Tied To The 
Great Pyramid Antechamber 

Because Pentecost or Shavuot often falls in the months when weddings are popular, it ties in to the Parable of the Ten Virgins, Yahshua's Parable that tells the story of the Bridegroom who is coming for his bride and finds her virgin attendants asleep. Despite being asleep, the Wise Virgins have enough of the oil of the Holy Spirit to have done much good for the cause of Christ, but the Foolish Virgins do not have enough oil, and this signifies their spiritual bankruptcy. Therefore, Yahshua shuts the door on the Foolish Virgins as a symbol of the fact that they will be left behind in the Rapture, while the Wise Virgins go with the Bride to Heaven for the Wedding of the Lamb.

Last year, I wrote a ministry blog article that describes more about how the Rapture is tied to Pentecost or Shavuot. Here is the title and link to it:

WHY PENTECOST IS TIED TO THE RAPTURE

There are also many clues tying the Rapture to other Jewish and Christian Feasts such as the Sunday that falls in Passover Week, which is the Christian Feast of Pascha or Easter. This is the day when Yahshua rose from the dead and ascended to Heaven to be presented before His Father as the spotless Passover Lamb and Firstfruits of the Resurrection. It is also the day that the Omer was counted for 49 days leading to the Feast of Shavuot or Pentecost, which should also always fall on a Sunday for the Jews if they counted it correctly.

I could give many more reasons why I think the Rapture could be associated with the time period between  Passover and Pentecost, but the preceding ones are probably the most compelling. So I think it is a good idea to not assume that the Rapture has to be on Rosh Hashanah, or to allow oneself to be swayed by teachers who insist it has to be. I don't believe it's right to do so. In fact, I think it is a much better idea for all believers to remain ready to meet Yahshua in the air at any time, for only God knows when the Rapture will be.

Nonetheless, if we consider that the Passover Blood Moon of April 4th, 2015 falls early in the morning on a Regular Sabbath directly before Pascha or Easter on April 5th, which is the Sunday of Passover Week that the Firstfruits Offering was made in the Temple in Jerusalem, and the SAME EXACT DAY that Yahshua rose from the dead and ascended to Heaven to be presented before the Father as the Firstfruits of the Resurrection in a Rapture-like event. Therefore, it's either an awesome coincidence or a sure Sign from Almighty God that we're going home in the Rapture very, very soon.

I personally believe it could be the latter, especially since Easter Island was discovered on April 5th, 1722, tying its discovery in to this year's celebration of Pascha or Easter on the same day - April 5th. Personally, I believe that Easter Island was a stronghold of the righteous Sethites prior to the Great Flood, and that they left monuments on the Earth like the Moai Statues on Easter Island and the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt prior to the Flood to commemorate their knowledge of God - knowledge that was gleaned from knowing the Gospel in the Stars.

So let's hope we'll be meeting Yahshua in the air sometime very soon - maybe even sometime between Passover and Pentecost this year - or next! After all, the Antechamber in the Great Pyramid does target the official anniversary of Yahshua's ascension ten days before Shavuot or Pentecost in 2016, and that also makes the same season between Passover and Pentecost in 2016 very compelling as a possible Rapture time!
