"Pentecost Rapture Date"

Read the article at the following link (a brief excerpt is attached):
"Israel's calendar was also clearly designated for prophetic purposes. It was typical of special events in dispensational time as well. Therefore, it was not merely a calendar for the yearly cycle, but was primarily for the dispensational cycle as has been proven in the process of events at the close of the Law Age.

"The moment the Apostle Paul, by Divine inspiration, expressed the truths of the Rapture of the Church in terms of the Pentecostal Feast of Firstfruits typology (Rom. 8:11,23; 15:15,16; I Cor. 15:20-23), he assigned a Date for the Rapture of the Church! This is because a major ingredient emphasized in the Feast of Firstfruits (Pentecost) is the "countdown" from the Wave Sheaf at Passover to the date of its observance at Pentecost with the Wave Loaves of the "New Grain Offering."

I am becoming a proponent of the raptures outlined by Eliane B. The article above incorrectly predicted the Pentecost in 1998 as the date for the rapture. However, the Pentecost day appears to be the correct reasoning to me
