In Matthew 24, Jesus indicated that the rapture event is when the fig tree is bloomed.  He said this in verses 32 and 33, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree:  When its branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that SUMMER (caps mine) is near; So likewise when ye see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors."  (KJV)  No mention of the Fall season here.

This seems to militate against a Rosh Hashana rapture inasmuch as this day is in the FALL.

Further, a RHH rapture would occur on an expected day.  However, we are told that "in an hour that ye think not the Son of Man cometh" (Matt 24:44).  I think August 21/22 is an excellent hour when we think not.   And IT IS in the summertime.

I further I suspect that Israel may act before September's strangle hold on her destiny by the U. N. in her own self-defense.  This may mean action this month.

I am really taken by the twice count of 234 days, from Jan 1 to August 21/22 and Aug 21/22 to the rise of the A/C on April 11/12, 2012.  It seems to bracket a two day period.  This is neat!

But as always, we will see.
