Timing of the Rapture

There are a lot of debates about the scriptures concerning when the Rapture will occur – to some, if at all. Thanks to Perry Stone’s observations I offer my version.

God, “Declaring the end from the beginning…” Isa 46:10a

Genesis 8 – Outpouring of the Holy Spirit (dove) – Last Days pour out Spirit

Genesis 7 – Shaking of the Earth – Earthquakes in divers places

Genesis 6 – Signs of the Days of Noah – violence and evil therefore the love of many grow cold

Genesis 5 – Rapture of Enoch – Rapture of the church

Genesis 4 – Marking of Cain – Marking of God’s 144,000 and Mark of the Beast for the rest

Genesis 3 – Satan won over man 3:15 – Satan loses over a Man, Rev 20:2

Genesis 2 – Perfect Paradise – Reve 22 Perfect Paradise

Genesis 1 –

  • Time Begins – Time Ends;
  • God walked with man – God walks with man;
  • Tree of Life – Tree of Life heals the nations;
  • Adam and Eve – Jesus and His Bride;
  • No sickness or death – No more sickness or death;
  • Eternity Past – Eternity Future

First two chapters of the word of God are perfect. Alef; Alpha
Last two chapters of the word of God are perfect. Tav; Omega

Genesis – Nimrod one world government; tower of Babel
Revelation – Antichrist one world government; mystery Babylon; Babylon is destroyed

Isaiah 46:9-10 (KJV)
Remember the former things of old: for I [am] God, and [there is] none else; [I am] God, and [there is] none like me,  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Revelation 22:13 (KJV)
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

John 1:1-5 (KJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:1-5 (KJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Bread of Life

Bread of Life – לחם החיים

Interestingly, “bread” first appears in Gen 3:19 as part of the curse. In fact, the word bread (lechem לחם) when pronounced lecham (לחם) means to battle, to war, to fight, and to eat food. The Hebrew letters mean control/to/from, separation/fenced/wall, chaos/waters – When water and flour are mixed, they’re kneaded into bread and put into the fire. Control the separation of chaos or control the separation of waters. Hunger is chaos both of the stomach and to the spirit. To eat brings waters, salivating, stomach acids which wars against the elements to become energy (fire). The value of bread is 78.

The in Hebrew is simply the addition of the letter hey ה. It is the 5th letter in Hebrew and has a meaning of behold/window/revelation/grace. It’s value is 5.

Life in Hebrew is חיים literally “lives”. חיים letter meanings are separation/fenced/wall, work/deed/arm & hand, work/deed/arm & hand, chaos/waters.

To understand this, you must see what the word blood is in Hebrew which is דם and the letters mean door/path, chaos/waters. Our body’s paths (veins) hold water (blood) which is the life, Gen 9:4. So life, חיים means fenced, work, deed, water. Our life is in the blood just as the word of God says and is contained within us. By it we work and do.

The Bread of Life wars for us, satisfies us, by the shedding of His blood, His life poured out for us. So that by His work/deed, we have life! While we know this from word, the letters spell it out too. Every nuance points to Jesus in one way or another.

Here’s the first time praise is used:

Genesis 29:35 (KJV)
And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the LORD: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.​

So let’s look at praiseידה is yada in Hebrew and means to shoot arrows, to cast, to throw down, to laud, to give thanks, to confess sins. It also means hand.

Its letters mean:
י – arm and hand/deed/work – value of 10
ד – door/pathway – value of 4
ה – grace/revelation/window – value of 5

Total: 19 (a prime number)

So praise is to use your arms and hands (Psa 134:2; 1 Tim 2:8) which opens a doorway to grace and revelation. The idea also is the movements of the hand enables work in the flesh and in the spirit. We raise our hands like a child asking for help, throw up our hands in surrender to a superior Force, in praise to give thanks and glory to God, and cast our cares and sins to His faithful judgement.

Judah – יהודה – is the tribe that always went up first to battle. We should praise before battle! If you remove the ד(Door – John 10:9 :) ) from the word you have יהוה which is the name God gave to Moses! Indeed, the Door from the tribe of Judah (Praise) is the Pathway (John 14:6) to the Father through confession and praise (Rom 10:9)!

Glory to God how His word is so entwined like a gorgeous tapestry revealing Your Son with every pulled thread!!

All Powerful God – Waiting

A thought: The Father knows not only the end from the beginning but all the possible choices we all make and all the possible outcomes. This is how we get to the “many are called, few are chosen”. He chooses those that would accept His calling, just like God knew Pharaoh would do evil, so God chose him to fulfill God’s will, then hardened Pharaoh’s heart to expedite the desired outcome – to give God the glory. Sort of like the police using already bad people to do their bidding for a greater good – catch the bigger criminal. Everyone still has the choice to choose. If the little criminal or Pharaoh had repented and said “I’m done with that life” there’s nothing the police or God could do. The police and God would find someone else to do their bidding. This also gives us the understanding why it takes an Omniscient and Omnipotent God time to get things done when we pray – He’s waiting for an obedient servant. Think about all the supernatural events recorded in the scriptures and notice how many are through the hands of simple obedient humans, all using God’s power He instructed them to use in the first place.

Jesus the Gift

Proverbs 30:4-7 (KJV)

Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell? Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:


Proverbs 30:4-7 (HEBm)

מי עלה שמים וירד מי אסף רוח בחפניו מי צרר מים בשמלה מי הקים כל אפסי ארץ מה שמו ומה שם בנו כי תדע׃ כל אמרת אלוה צרופה מגן הוא לחסים בו׃ אל תוסף על דבריו פן יוכיח בך ונכזבת׃ שתים שאלתי מאתך אל תמנע ממני בטרם אמות׃

שי as the whole word appears 3 times in the scriptures:

Psalms 68:28-29 (KJV)

Thy God hath commanded thy strength: strengthen, O God, that which thou hast wrought for us. Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.

Psalms 76:11 (KJV)

Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared.

Isaiah 18:7 (KJV)

In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.


Jesus, talking to the Samaritan woman said:

John 4:10 (KJV)

Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.


Ephesians 2:8 (KJV)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

The word “the” here in the Greek is a word form that reflects a person, which we don’t have an equivalent in English. Like “the Adam” or “the Jesus”.

Behold the Blood of Jesus

Leviticus 21:10 (KJV)

And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;


והכהן הגדול מאחיו אשר יוצק על ראשו שמן המשחה ומלא את ידו ללבש את הבגדים את ראשו לא יפרע ובגדיו לא יפרם׃

Jesus is in every letter

Isaiah 53:8-10 (KJV)

He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.​


Isaiah 53:8-10 (HEBm)


מעצר וממשפט לקח ואת דורו מי ישוחח כי נגזר מארץ חיים מפשע עמי נגע למו׃ ויתן את רשעים קברו ואת עשיר במתיו על לא חמס עשה ולא מרמה בפיו׃ ויהוה חפץ דכאו החלי אם תשים אשם נפשו יראה זרע יאריך ימים וחפץ יהוה בידו יצלח׃​
ישוע שמי = Jesus my Name


Starting with “He shall prolong” in verse 10, prolong is יאריך count to the right and then up, every 20th letter it spells out Yeshua Shmi or, Jesus My Name.

Syria Bombing and Seven

The Syrian airport bombing occurred at 2:40 am local time on 7 Apr 2017, (8:40 pm DC 6 Apr 2017), just 77 days after Pres. Trump being sworn in.

Trump was born 700 days before Israel. 14 Jun 1946 to 14 May 1948 = 700 days. On this day in DC, Apr 6, there were 3 official and 2 unofficial very weak tornadoes and 2 funnel clouds (7 that day) in the DC area. The first tornados in DC in 15 years.

Donald Trump Election and Seven

Here are some interesting facts.

The date on the Hebrew calendar for the US election was Heshvan 7, 5777.

Trump will be sworn in on 20 Jan 2017, and the serial day number for that date is 24,57774. (SDN is also known as the Julian Day Number, defined as noon Universal Time (UT) Monday, January 1, 4713 BC in the Julian calendar.)

On that day, Trump will be 70 years old, 7 months, and 7 days old (in Israel, 6 in the USA), which is 7 hours ahead of DC time, making it the next day. In the US, it’ll be noon, 7 pm in Israel. You can use your Windows calculator and verify for yourself. Born, Jun 14, 1946 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump), the Windows calculator will allow you to see that in NYC and DC on 20 January 2017, he will be 70 years old, 7 months, and 6 days. At noon that day, he’ll be sworn in as President of the United States. In Israel at that moment, it’ll be 7pm to next day, making him 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old.

I do not purport to interpret the significance of all these sevens, but in the KJV, all the variations of “seven” (i.e. seven, sevens, seventy…) total 562 times. The meaning of seven leans towards God’s involvement or complete. A few examples of sevens, and by no means exhaustive, are:

  • Seven days in a week
  • Seventh Day a Sabbath
  • Enoch – Seventh from Adam – was Raptured
  • Sabbatical Year – 7th year (after which is the Jubilee which is 7 x 7 + 1)
  • Counting the Omer (Seven Sabbaths after Passover to Pentecost)
  • Seven lamps on the Menorah
  • Seven Spirits of God
  • Seven Eyes of God
  • Jacob’s years for Rachel (Seven tricked years, Seven for Rachel, Seven for animals)
  • Seven years of plenty and seven years of famine
  • Seven days of Feast of Unleavened Bread
  • The Passover on the 14th Day of the Month ( 14 = 7 + 7)
  • The Feast of Trumpets during the seventh month with the seven lambs
  • Seven lambs on the Day of Atonement in the seventh month
  • Seven bulls and fourteen lambs on the seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles in the seventh month which lasts for seven days
  • Joshua’s march of Seven priests, seven trumpets, seventh day, march seven times
  • All the myriad of sevens in the book of Revelation including seven churches

Genesis 1:1, mathematically, is an amazing, truly a miracle, as a signature of God.

  • The number of Hebrew words = 7
  • The number of letters equals 28 (7×4 = 28)
  • The first 3 Hebrew words translated “In the beginning God created” have 14 letters (7×2 = 14)
  • The last four Hebrew words “the heavens and the earth” have 14 letters (7×2 = 14)
  • The Hebrew letter sum – the number to be associated with the complete verse – is 2701, or 37 x 73, a palindrome and an equilateral triangle (http://www.whatabeginning.com/Misc/Wonders/P.htm)
  • The 37, and 73 have geometrical pattern as shown in the image below:

Seven in Hebrew is שבע (sheba – not like the queen which is spelled differently) but it also means oath. Literally to seven oneself. A common practice was to make seven declarations when making an oath. Not only does each Hebrew letter substituted to a number, but each has its own meaning. שבע has a meaning of consumed, in, experience, which is the end of the week. You’re week is consumed in experience.

With that said, I wonder what all these sevens mean concerning Donald Trump (טראמפ דונלד). It is interesting that the letter meaning for his last name Trump, mean, surrounding, man, strength, waters, mouth. I read it as his strength/weakness is the words from his mouth that surround him. His mouth is a blessing and a curse to people and to himself.

1 Tishri – Feast of Trumpets

Feast of Trumpets
In Hebrew called Yom Teruah – יום תרועה– Day of Blowing

God gave us an appointment book, and called them feasts. It is very important to know them.

Leviticus 23:1-2 (KJV)
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, [Concerning] the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim [to be] holy convocations, [even] these [are] my feasts.

The word feast is actually the word mo’ed (מועד) meaning appointed time. The first time this is used is in Genesis 1:14 where in the KJV it’s translated seasons, it’s literally appointed times. Speaking of the sun and moon, God said, “…and let them be for signs, and for appointed times, and for days, and years”. Seasons, spring, summer, fall, winter, didn’t even exist until after the fall, maybe even after the flood! Islam uses just the lunar cycle for their calendar, the West uses only the solar cycle for their calendar, but the Jews still follow the instructions of God and use both the solar and lunar cycles for their calendar. Yet, they still missed His signs!

These feasts are to be proclaimed forever because they speak of the Lord Jesus, a dress rehearsal (the meaning of the word convocation is literally dress rehearsal!) of His life, so all can recognize Him.

The seven appointed times are:

  • Jesus was born on the Feast of Tabernacles, 15 Tishri
  • Jesus died on Passover, 14 Nisan
  • Jesus was buried on Feast of Unleavened Bread, 15 Nisan
  • Jesus rose from the dead on the Feast of First Fruits, 17 Nisan
  • God gave the Law to Moses and the Holy Spirit to the church on Pentecost, 6 Sivan

There are two feasts left, Feast of Trumpets, 1 Tishri and Day of Atonement, 10 Tishri. The Day of Atonement is when Jesus will do according to the meaning of the word: the reconciliation between God and man, and lift the curse and set up His kingdom on earth for 1000 years, Revelation 20:6. So what is the Feast of Trumpets?

Tishri is the name of the seventh month – originally was the first month until the Exodus when God changed the first month to Nisan, Exodus 12:2. Tishri 1 is when the calendar year changes number. It is not connected to any historical event, even after Jesus’ time on earth. The same is said for the Day of Atonement. Tishri 1 is also known as “the day in which no man can know the day or the hour” because it must be proclaimed. A hint from Jesus’ own words perhaps, Matthew 24:36. First, two witnesses need to see the new moon. Then the council will determine if the day (1 Tishri) falls on a Sabbath or causes any other feast day to fall on a Sabbath. If so, it is postponed until the next day or even a second day. Hence the reason no one can know the day or the hour! Now 1 Tishri, because of the diaspora, dispersing of the Jews to Babylon, this day is also called the One Long Day because they’d light fires to notify the next hill who’d like a fire to the next hill, all the way to Babylon. As such, no one knows the day or the hour in which it started. Even the devil doesn’t know when it begins, 1 Corinthians 2:8.

Leviticus 23:23-25 (KJV)
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first [day] of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work [therein]: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

The trumpet wasn’t the brass ones you see today, but a ram’s horn. Four distinct sounds, or calls, were made with it. The first one is called Tekiah, the Blast, and means Awake and to Praise God with the Tekiah, Numbers 10:3. The next one is called the Shevarim, three blasts, meaning Broken, as in True Repentance, Broken before God, Numbers 10:5. The third one is called Teruah and means Alarm, Numbers 10:9. The sound is intended to alert the hearer to danger or an event. The fourth sound is called the Tekiah haGadolah and means the Great Blast, and is to be blown until out of breath, the long blast, Exodus 19:16, 19. You can hear them here http://abdicate.net/shofar.mp4 . The shofar is blow 100 times. The three sounds are blown and repeated 3 times making a series of 9 blasts. This is repeated 11 times, making 99 and the end, the 100th is the Great Blast, blown with a full breath until it cannot be blown any more, and it is also known as the Last Trump! The last trump is Rosh haShanah, the First Trump is known as Pentecost, and the Great Trump is on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) because it is when the Year of Jubilee is declared with the silver trumpets, not the ram’s horn.

Notice the progression of the types of trumps: Awake, Repent, Pay Attention, Event! This is also the meaning of these three fall feast:

  • 1 Tishri, Repent
  • 10 Tishri, Redeem
  • 15 Tishri, Rejoice!

1 Tishri has many names:

  • Rosh haShanah – Head of the Year
  • Yom Teruah – Day of Blowing
  • Yom haDin – the Day of Judgment
  • Yom haKeseh – the Hidden Day
  • Yom haKiddushin – Wedding Day
  • Yom haMelech – Day of the King
  • Yom Ziccaron Teruah – Day of Remembrance Blast
  • Opening of the Books
  • Opening of the Gates
  • Day of the Awakening Blast
  • Feast of Trumpets

No reason is given for this feast. Apparently, the reason was self-evident. In his book The Jewish Festivals, Rabbi S. M. Lehrman notes that Rosh haShanah is “…the picture of a Day of Judgment on which all mortals pass before the Heavenly Throne to give an account of their deeds and to receive the promise of mercy.” Just like the bailiff cries out “Hear ye! Hear ye! The Honorable Judge of the Universe presiding,” and beginning the ten days of trial. After which, man is reconciled to God, then God dwells with man! However, whereas this day is holy for His people, it is a gloomy day for those that reject God, Joel 2:1-2! Also check out Joel 1:15, Zeph 1:14-15, Amos 5:18.

For those that are His people, let’s look at the usage of the shofar (ram’s horn trumpet) in the scriptures:

Exodus 19:10-13 (KJV)
And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, [that ye] go [not] up into the mount, or touch the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death: There shall not an hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether [it be] beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.

Exodus 19:16-19 (KJV)
And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that [was] in the camp trembled. And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

In Joshua, we see that the city of Jericho was shut up and Israel could not possess the land.

Joshua 6:2-5 (KJV)
And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, [and] the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all [ye] men of war, [and] go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long [blast] with the ram’s horn, [and] when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.

What an amazing picture these verses depict! Notice where else the shout and trumpet is used:

1 Corinthians 15:52-53 (KJV)
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal [must] put on immortality.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (KJV)
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 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 them which are asleep. 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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

What a comfort!!! Paul is quoting this verse:

Psalms 47:5-9 (KJV)
God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises. For God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding. God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness. The princes of the people are gathered together, [even] the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth [belong] unto God: he is greatly exalted.

Shout: Teruah! Trumpet: Shofar! Last trump is called Tekiah haGadolah and is played only on 1 Tishri! Notice this:

Zechariah 9:14 (KJV)
And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.

Psalms 89:15 (KJV)
Blessed [is] the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.

Sound in Hebrew is the word Teruah! The signal, the alarm! Those that are His will hear it and know!

1 Corinthians 14:8 (KJV)
For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?

But when this day of trumpet arrives for the lost, it is a day of judgment:

Zephaniah 1:14-16 (KJV)
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. That day [is] a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

A day of the trumpet and alarm: Yom Shofar and Teruah! Here’s Jesus’ parable of the Ten Virgins in the Hebrew Scriptures is found in Daniel 12:1-3 and in Matthew 24:7-8, the Greek word here for sorrows is birth pangs. So the day of the Lord is not a good day for those that do not know God, Amos 5:20.

Notice in Revelation 17:5 the woman is the mother of harlots. Speaking of the Antichrist Daniel 11:32 says he will corrupt the covenant with flatteries but the people of God will be strong and do exploits. Proverbs 7:1-3 says we’re to keep the teachings of God in our heart. Torah means teaching, not Law, and literally means to hit the mark. Sin literally means tomiss the mark. Now look at the rest, Proverbs 7:4-10, where it says it’ll keep you from the strange woman with flattering words! Also notice that the simpleton goes to her house in the black and dark night, the time of Jacob’s trouble, and met the woman dressed as a harlot. Now look at verses Proverbs 7:13-15 where she’s a religious person having finished her vows and sought after the simpleton.

Now look at Mark 13:34 where Jesus is like One on a long far away journey. In Matthew 25:14-15, where the kingdom of heaven is like as a man traveling into a far country, giving His servants money and authority. Matthew 20 shows where Jesus is the householder, the good Man of the house. Go back to Proverbs 7:18-20 and see what it says:

Proverbs 7:18-20 (KJV)
Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. For the goodman [is] not at home, he is gone a long journey: He hath taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the day appointed.

Everyone is trying to figure out the times, yet here it is for all to see who wish to see. The devil has already changed the times (Daniel 7:25) by leading us to follow the Pope Gregory’s calendar – Gregorian calendar, (before that Julian and before that Roman calendars) rather than the Scriptural calendar where we can see the day appointed.

The words day appointed in Proverbs is Yom Kece meaning the day of the full moon. What feasts fall on the day of the full moon? The feast of the full moon, 15 Nisan, is when Jesus was buried. The other feast of the full moon is 15 Tishri, Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus’ birthday! In other words, Proverbs 7:20 states that when Jesus returns, He’ll set up His kingdom on 15 Tishri, the day appointed, feast of the full moon!

But, you say, Jesus comes as a thief in the night. I say not to those watching and alive in Christ, but only to those dead in the church. Revelation 3:1-3 states that if the dead church does not watch, I will come unto you as a thief! The same warning to the church of Laodicea who don’t even know they are poor, blind, naked and miserable! Jesus warns again:

Revelation 16:15 (KJV)
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed [is] he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

In the Jewish tradition, the High Priest was called the one that would come as a thief in the night because he’d sneak up to the night watchman and if he found them asleep, he would go and get coals and set their garments on fire, they’d wake up and throw off their garments and run away naked!

Now read Matthew 25:8-13 and Luke 12:37-48! Peter asked if this was for the world or for them. Jesus plainly states it’s for the Man’s servant who is not watching! Matthew 16:3 shows that the Jews didn’t see the signs nor understand them, Luke 19:44. 1 Chronicles 12:32 shows that Issachar knew the times. Seeing all these links, now read what Paul says to the faithful!

1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 (KJV)
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

We as Christians are to help the Jews see these appointed times, Ezekiel 33; Jeremiah 6:10, Acts 7:51.

Isaiah 58:1 (KJV)
Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

Remember the old paths, the appointed times.

Jeremiah 6:16-17 (KJV)
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where [is] the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk [therein]. Also I set watchmen over you, [saying], Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.

The rest of the chapter talks about the tribulation period!

Notice what happens to the faithful, those that are watching and waiting:

Daniel 12:2 (KJV)
And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame [and] everlasting contempt.

Isaiah 26:19-21 (KJV)
Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

If that’s not understood as the Rapture, then you just don’t want to believe the scriptures.

Psalms 98:4-9 (KJV)
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King. Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap [their] hands: let the hills be joyful together before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

So let’s go back to the beginning where God set up His schedule:

Genesis 1:14 (KJV)
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

The first thing the sun, moon and stars are for is for signs. This word signs can be translated sign, signal, a distinguishing mark, banner, remembrance, miraculous sign, omen, warning, token, ensign, standard, miracle, and proof. Do not think for a moment this is astrology (interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world) but only for what God has said signs.

1 Tishri also marks the beginning of the Sabbatical year (shemita) and the year of Jubilee, and the trumpet is sounded on 10 Tishri, Leviticus 25:8-9, mark that that year is the year of Jubilee. And in Jewish tradition 1 Tishri was the day in which Abraham bound up Isaac to sacrifice him. When Abraham proved himself to God, God provided a ram who was caught by its HORN!! The shofar is a ram’s horn! Who is Isaac a symbol of? Jesus! So when the shofar is blown on 1 Tishri it’s to remind God of the promise (which the Jews missed) and to us of the finished work of Jesus as He moves from the seat of judgment to the seat of mercy, Numbers 10:10; Isaiah 44:23-24; Psalms 32:10-11; Psalms 47:1-9!

Note an interesting word. The first word of the scriptures is בראשׁית and means in the beginning, and literally means in head [of time] mark, as in Genesis, in beginning, in source, in onset, in inception. Like when NASA says, “Start the countdown, mark!” Rearrange the letters and you get תשׁרי בא, Tishri Come! If you put a space after the tav (ת), you have Mark [and] Abide [the] Coming! Philippians 1:24 and 1 John 2:24-25! Tav (ת) is what God said in Ezekiel 9:4 would be what is used to mark the worthy, Revelation 7:3 and 9:4! Tav is also the symbol that is portrayed when the lamb’s blood is put on the sides and lintel of the door!

We know this day is also the day when the Lord comes to rule the earth because on a 30-day monthly calendar, from Passover to Feast of Trumpets is 1260 days! Jesus died on Passover, so too will the Antichrist kill the Two Witnesses, and execute the abomination of desolation on Passover, and then in 1260 days Jesus returns to rule for 1000 years. The Two Witness preach for 1260 days, Revelation 11:3, and Israel is to flee to the mountains and abide there 1260 days, Revelation 12:6. Add the two together and you get 7 years. 2520 days after the arrival of the Two Witnesses, Jesus returns. 1 Tishri is a dual meaning day!

Psalms 102:13 (KJV)
Thou shalt arise, [and] have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

Time in this verse is mo’ed, Appointed Times.

Psalms 102:18 (KJV)
This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.

The words generation to come is literally last generation.

Job 24:1 (KJV)
Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?

Whether the Lord comes on this day or not, always look up! Maranatha – Come Lord! :)

Luke 21:28 (KJV)
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
