Hey Charles !
Loved your post ! I cracked
up with your opening line “I admit I almost fainted when the feast
of trumpets was over and I was still here!”
While I am always on the watch and
alert, I didn’t get my expectations too high this time
around in spite of the absolute theories why the Rapture
just HAD to be this year on Feast of Trumpets.
I’ve been there, done that !! Every year for the
past 4-5 yrs I have been putting on my high rapture
alert cap in September. Of course then came
the Day of Atonement and now the Feast of
Tabernacles.....and last but not least October 21 which
most people are keeping their lips zipped. (For
those who might not know, Camping had stated the only
other possible ‘rapture’ date was October 21 if May 21
One of the other comments of your
post that grabbed me was what you wrote “I discovered is
watching is to be our life by being grounded in the word
and praying for his return we can see his nearness of
coming and the things of this world properly.”
Being Rooted and Grounded in the
Word of God, staying in His Presence, watching and
praying for the church to become more sanctified, for
souls to enter into the Kingdom of God and praying for
His imminent return is how I get through the ‘high
rapture alert’ days. I too have repented for being
lax at times.
I don’t know if we’ll be here for
Oct 31, but if we are, I will continue to do what I have
been doing every year for the last 3 yrs. I write
scriptures on index cards and I place them in the treat
bags along w/a piece of candy. I write scriptures
for the little ones and ‘deeper’ ones for the older
kids. I have to start at least 1 week ahead before
the 31st ! I pray over them and the kids when they
come to my door. One pre-teen read his as he was
leaving and turned around to thank me and tell me how
cool it was ! Praise be to the LORD!
As for the time we are in, Feasts
or not, His Return is imminent ! I don’t see us being
here in 2-3 more years ! Earlier this year when
Egypt’s people rose up which then spread, word got
around, it would come to the U.S. Well,
well. It sure has !
It may be the fulfillment of the
FoT, Yom Kippur, Feast of Tabernacles may indeed be for
the JEWS...not for the church ??? Don’t
What is certain is God’s promise
to us, that the generation in which Israel is re-born
would be the generation Jesus would return for us.
WE are THAT generation !
So...Come LORD Jesus. We love You and long to
Behold Your Beauty face to FACE.
Yours in Christ,
