Strong's Greek: 726 Harpazo 
While I was in prayer several nights ago, I clearly heard the Holy Spirit remind me of the fact that July 26th or 7-26 is coming up, and that this date has been associated with the Rapture for several years now because the Greek word Harpazo meaning "To Snatch Away" is the Strong's Greek Concordance number 726. The word Harpazo has the same meaning as the Latin word Rapere, which is where the word Rapture came from. In reference to this event, the word appears in Chapter 4, verse 17 of the First Epistle to the  Thessalonians written by the Apostle Paul. I've quoted it in a larger context several paragraphs below. Interestingly, July 26th falls on the 28th day of the Jewish month of Tammuz this year, which is during a three week long time of fasting and prayer that begins on the 17th day of Tammuz and ends on Tisha B'Av or the 9th of Av on the Jewish Calendar. On the solemn fast day known as Tisha B'Av, which falls on August 6th, 2022 this year, religious Jews abstain from eating and mourn over the destruction of the First and Second Temples to Yahweh in Jerusalem. 

Like July 26th, the 9th of Av this August 6th is also considered to be a High Rapture Watch time because of the Jewish belief that God will turn this sad day of mourning into a day of joyful celebration some day. This change from a day of sadness to one of joy is echoed in the Minor Jewish Feast of Tu B'Av on Friday, August 12th, 2022. Tu B'Av is akin to the celebration of Valentine's Day in the USA, when vows of love are proclaimed everywhere, and many vows of love are often solidified by announcing an engagement or upcoming wedding.

The Strong's Greek Word Harpazo, which is numbered 726, is a verb that means to "Forcefully Seize" or "Catch Away". In English Bibles, this word has been translated to mean "Caught Up" or "Snatched Away", as in a sudden and forceful way. This action is what the Apostle Paul said will happen when Yahshua returns to rescue His Born-Again Saints from His coming Wrath against the wicked, which will be unleashed during the Great Tribulation. This rescue or snatching away of the Saints up to Heaven will happen immediately after all the dead and currently living Saints are raised up with imperishable bodies. This resurrection and rescue event is described in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, where it says:

“For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord (Adonai Yahshua)) Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God (Yah). And the dead in Christ (Messiah) will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up (Harpazo) together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord (Adonai) in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord (Adonai). 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.”

This rescue from God's terrible Wrath against the wicked will occur when Yahshua our Messiah appears in the clouds above the Earth. Since the Wrath of God or the Lamb (who is Yahshua) is unleashed on the Earth when the Sixth Seal is opened, the Rapture must take place before the Trumpet and Bowl Judgments described later in the Book of Revelation take place. The Wrath of the Lamb is released, the Elites hiding in their underground shelters will tremble in fear - just as it is described in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 6, verses 15 and 16:

“And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves 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 who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

At that time, those Saints who have fallen asleep with belief in the Messiah will be raised up to everlasting life. Then the transformation of the living Saints into immortal beings will occur in the "twinkling of an eye", or very rapidly. This will happen just after a time of severe Christian and Jewish persecution or tribulation is coming to an end. I believe that this time of persecution may have ended with the relaxing of restrictions from the COVID-19 Pandemic in the Spring of 2022.  

I therefore believe it is possible that - sometime shortly after this relaxing of restrictions, in a deceptive moment of peace and calm - Yahshua['s Glory will appear in the atmosphere above the Earth in what is called the Sign of the Son of Man, which also may be tied to the Celestial Signs in the Sun, Moon and Wandering Stars or Planets. At that time, He will send His holy angels to snatch up the resurrected saints to Heaven, just as it is described in Matthew 24:29-31

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

As a Sacred Astronomer, I find it interesting that Yahshua told His followers or disciples to watch for Signs in the Heavens relating to His coming that will be visible in the movements of the Sun, Moon and Wandering Stars that we define as Planets because they do not cast their own light, but only reflect the light of the Sun. This is just as our Moon and the moons around the Planets do not emit light, but only reflect it:

Luke 21:25-27 - “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”

So it's no surprise that the Holy Spirit also prompted me to look up the Celestial Signs on July 26th this year, and - upon looking at the Heavenly Signs on July 25th, 26th and 27th - I was very intrigued by what I saw. I found it particularly intriguing that - on Tuesday, July 26th - the Moon connected to the Bride of Christ and Venus connected to Yahshua as the Bright Morning Star will nearly be in conjunction over the female Bride figure associated with the bright star Castor in the Sign of Gemini.

There are many who believe that the Bride of the Messiah refers to the entire Body of believers in Yahshua, However, I have trouble with this interpretation because there is only one Bride and one Groom in a traditional wedding ceremony. Furthermore, in Yahshua's Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins in Matthew Chapter 25, the ten Virgin maidens in the parable are not the Bride, but are her attendants that have been assigned to watch for the arrival of the Bridegroom while the Bride finishes making herself ready to be married. So it seems that the Bride and her Virgin attendants are not the same.

Fascinatingly, the Sign of Gemini the Twins has an esoteric connection to Yahshua as the promised Deliverer known in the Bible by the term "Nazarene". Although it is not widely known, the term "Nazarene", which is used prophetically in reference to Yahshua in Matthew 2:23, may be a prophetic Title for our Messiah. Though the term "Nazarene" was associated with the insignificant town of Nazareth in Judea, "Nazarene" also was used to refer to the early followers of Yahshua in Acts 24:5, and may be a mistranslation of the Hebrew phrase "Naz Seir" or "Prince of princes", which is another way of referring to Yahshua as the present and future King of kings.  

Getting back to the Signs on July 26th, the Sun and the planet Mercury will be in the neighboring Sign of Cancer, which is my Birth Sign. It is also the Sign associated with the ingathering of all the Saints in the Kingdom of Yahshua when it is established on the Earth after the Great Tribulation. It is also associated with the ingathering of all the resurrected Saints to attend the Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven, which is to commence after the Harpazo or Rapture takes place.

Moon Over Messiah's Heart, July 27th, 2022

Now, when I looked at the Signs on July 27th, I noticed that the nearly New Moon will have moved to be squarely over the heart of the male Bridegroom figure associated with the bright star Pollox in Gemini. Meanwhile, Venus will remain over the body of the female Bride figure associated with the twin star Castor. This movement in Gemini on July 26th and 27th while the Sun and Mercury are in Cancer - the constellation associated with the ingathering of the Saints to be with Yahshua - made me wonder if those who see July 26th as a potential Rapture day due to its connection to the word Harpazo numbered 726 in Strong's Greek Concordance may be on to something! 

This day leading up to the solemnity of Tisha B'Av or the 9th of Av is also interesting to me because I was born on Tisha B'Av, and it also happened to fall on August 6th in 1957, which was the year that I was born. Since Tisha B'Av is viewed as a day that will one day have a joyful meaning, it is also a potential Rapture day - and what could be more joyful than taking part in the Rapture or First Resurrection into everlasting life?

The Signs on August 6th this year are also aligned in the Signs of Cancer and Gemini, so it could be a potential day for the Rapture this year as well. So, although I do not know when the Rapture will take place, it could be very soon. In fact, the general consensus among many Saints in the Americas, the British Isles, Europe, Africa and Asia is that it is coming very soon, and it will happen on a day when many will least suspect it. This will be at a time of relative peace and calm - a time like this summer after the end of the 2020 through 2021 Corona Virus Pandemic. So let's keep looking up, and let's not lose faith that our Blessed Hope in the coming of Yahshua in the Rapture will soon take place - if not this summer, then maybe this Autumn - during the time period of the Autumn Feasts of Israel.

But there are several other possibilities this year when the Rapture could take place. In fact, earlier this year, while contemplating what to do with a new item that I bought at a store that was only three quarters full when I first opened it, I received a Word from the Holy Spirit that this was not something to be dismayed over, but that it was a Sign that something very significant to the Body of the Messiah will happen when this year is three quarters past. Since three months are equal to one quarter of the Solar Year, then the 3/4 mark will occur in September. Also, as most astronomers would agree, the true 3/4 mark of the year is the Autumn Equinox of the Sun, which will fall on September 22nd this year.

That's why I am so pleased to see that the period of the Autumn Feasts of Israel begins with the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Teruah on Monday, September 26th, 2022 (beginning on the night of September 25th). At that time, the dwarf planet  known as Ceres will be in the Sign of Leo the Lion of Judah. In addition, the Sun signifying Yahshua as the Sun of Righteousness of Malachi 4:2, the New Moon signifying the Saints and the Bride hidden in God's protective light, and Venus signifying Yahshua as the Bright Morning Star of Revelation 22:16 will be in Virgo the Virgin. Virgo signifies the birth and nurturing of the Messiah and Israel by our Heavenly Father Yahweh. 

Interestingly, directly opposite to Virgo in the Heavenly circle of the Mazzaroth is the Sign of Pisces the Fishes, which represents the Two Houses of Israel. These Houses are prophetically called Judah and Ephraim in several Old Testament prophecies. That's why it's significant that, on the east of Trumpets this year, the planets Jupiter signifying the Crucified Messiah and Neptune signifying New Testament Believers will be beneath the Ephraim Fish of Pisces. This Ephraim fish is swimming towards Aquarius the Water Bearer, which is a symbol for the glorified Messiah Yahshua pouring out the Holy Spirit upon His Saints. It is also the fish that is beneath the Sign of Pegasus, which signifies Yahshua coming again while riding on His Heavenly White Horse, as recorded in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 19.

This juxtaposition of the Wandering Stars in these Heavenly Signs connected to Israel are a Sign that something important to the Body of the Messiah may occur around this time. Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets is also known to the Jews as Rosh Hashanah, or the first day of their Civil Year. The end of the Autumn Feasts of Israel will be on the seventh day of the week long Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles, which begins on the evening of Sunday, October 9th, and ends at sunset on Sunday, October 16th this year. This entire two week period is considered to be a High Rapture Watch time - although we should always be preparing ourselves to be ready for our beloved Messiah Yahshua's soon return at any time.
