"Getting Ready for the Next Date: Trumpets"
Dear Doves,
We have witnessed the coming and going of Pentecost, both June 8 and July 31 this year and now realize that our predictions were a product of human thought and not Divine. It is another reminder that we are human and liable to error when we seek to interpret God's Word. If Pentecost is the correct date then we will have to wait for another year to see.
Let us now however move on to watch for Jesus to return on the next most widely held favorite for the rapture date: the Feast of Trumpets, the first of the three fall feasts of the Lord described in Exodus 23. This Feast has been the choice of many over the years and can easily be shown to make a lot of sense as the rapture date. Of course, some are proposing TuBAv and other dates before Trumpets, and we may be surprised.
Jesus did fulfill each and every one of the springtime feasts on the very day given in the book of Exodus. We can therefore expect that, if He is consistent, that He will do the same for the Fall feasts. However, this year may not be the correct year, so it may not work out any more than Pentecost did this year.
How can we go about getting ready for watching on the Feast of Trumpets. As it turns out, there are several excellent videos that we can view and learn much from about that day. The video by the Messianic Jew Zola Levitt was one of the best I have ever seen, he is so familiar with all of the details, as he would be since he is a rabbi.
All of the videos listed above from YouTube provide a wealth of information that can help us all as we watch and wait for the Lord to appear, whether this year or on some other year. Pentecost this year was not the correct day for His return for the Church. Hopefully, the Feast of Trumpets this year (Sept. 29) may be the day we have all been waiting for, amny of us for several years.
