Dear Doves,
Hosea 6:3
"Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. His going forth is established as the morning; HE WILL COME TO US LIKE THE RAIN, LIKE THE LATTER and former RAIN TO THE EARTH."
Joel 2:23
"Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God; For HE HAS GIVEN YOU THE FORMER RAIN FAITHFULLY, and he will cause THE RAIN TO COME DOWN FOR YOU - the former rain, and THE LATTER RAIN IN THE FIRST MONTH." (The "first-month" of the Hebrew Spiritual Year is the spring-month of Nisan.)
James 5:7
"Therefore, be patient, brethern, until THE COMING OF THE LORD.See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early AND LATTER RAIN."
These Scriptures describe the Lord as the 'latter rain" coming for us (rapture) in the "first month" which is Nisan.  Now that we know the rapture will occur in the spring-month of Nisan, we can work on determining which day it will occur. I believe that it will occur on the Day of Palms, Nisan 11, to commemorate the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the colt of a donkey, to fulfill the prophecy. and was greeted by a "great multitude" holding "palm branches". That was the 'true beginning' of the Church, even before the Day of Pentecost which we now call the 'official  beginning' of the Church.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus!
