Some of the days ahead of interest are the following. Day 120 since events began in the GOM on 4-20 will be 8-16. There were, some believe, 120 years for the building of the ark in the times of the Noah family. Is there a connection or link with day 120 or 121? There may be. The last day of Elul is a day the shofar is not blown. The shofar is silent. Would people be startled to hear it on this day?This will be 9-7 to 8 according to the Hillel calendar. The Feast of Trumpets is 9-8 to 9 according to the Hillel calendar. It is not a fast day. The major, and Torah commanded fast day, is 10 days later on Yom Kippur on 9-18 to 19. These dates are still in Summer. It is interesting that after Ramadan ends are three days for breaking of the fast of Ramadan, beginning on 9-10.
When we read Matthew 24: 37-40 about the family Noah and the Flood, it is about a period of eating, drinking and giving in marriage. These are activities often associated with Summer. Then is a story about two men working in a field. Next is a story about two women working at a mill. We know that the number two is symbolic of division or separation. What is the connection beyond a separation of people? Is it not about harvest of grain then taken to a mill to be ground? Or the men can be harvesting Summer fruit, rather than wheat or other grain. What grain from Israel would be that major crop, one of the 7 species or crops of Israel? We have two choices. It is barley or wheat. We are in the season after wheat harvest when the wheat would be ground at a mill! We are in the season of wheat milled and Summer fruit harvest! The two men are working. The two women are working. When would people not be working in fields or mills in Israel? No work days are weekly Sabbaths and Feasts of the Lord. This would include The Feast of Trumpets! This would include Yom Kippur. We may have clues that The Rapture will not be on a weekly Sabbath or on an additional Sabbath, like the Feast of Trumpets or Yom Kippur. It may be a routine work day. Our Master promises to come at a time you think not. When is Summer near, even at the door? The Messiah/Christ is the DOOR. There is a refrerence to figs earlier in verse 32. They come due after Summer is at the door or after it begins. Summer is near at the door also later as Summer ends! We are near the ending of the harvest of the first ripe figs and the pomegranates. The later and better grapes are coming due. We are nearing the completion, the high point of the Summer fruits harvests for Israel. The fullness is being harvested, or brought in. Only the olives are later, after the grapes. Remember Paul's phrase? The fullness of the Gentiles? Remember the Fruit of the Spirit? Do these clues from The Word signify a harvest home within days or weeks for the family of faith?
Each day now is a fine day to WATCH for the return of the Beloved Groom of Grooms. The Wedding of the Ages is before us! Bless John Tng and all the Doves!
With Love and Shalom,
