Im still looking foward to the rapture to happen before the gates of heaven close on Yom Kippur, but i dont know the day or hour so im looking at other clues for consideration.
I found this interesting and wanted to share.
The Festival of Sukkot,
originally associated with gathering into storage of grain and new wine.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. ( strongs 1092= a husbandman , tiller of the soil, a vine dresser )
If Jesus is the head of the church and the church is the body of Christ, and since Jesus refers Hinself as the
vine the body is the representation of grapes.
Sukkot and New Wine could be a clue to the rapture timing.
The wedding in Cana of Galilee where water was made to new wine on the spot by Jesus and
this was the beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and He manifested His glory.
this first miracle was new wine which is a clue, to our Wedding when theres new wine, on a Feast day of new wine on Sukkot
And the 2nd clue,
Matthew 26:29 (King James Version)
But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
When is it possible to drink new wine on Sukkot.
Deuteronomy 16:13 (King James Version)
Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:
New King James"You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and from your winepress".
After gathering the grapes and cruhing them, new wine is made, just in time to celebrate Sukkot with new wine, jesus said he will return to drink new wine, when is this possible only on Sukkot.
Genesis 40:11 (King James Version)
And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.
Its my understanding that on the first two nights of Sukkot a blessing is said for dwelling in the tabernacle, and its to be recited over a cup of wine in the Tabernacle. This is the Blessing that is said over the wine.
"Blessed are You, Lord, our God, King of the universe, Who creates the fruit of the vine."
Jesus just might drink the new wine in Our wedding Day to the Lamb on the Feast of Tabernaces.
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. ( strongs 1092= a husbandman , tiller of the soil, a vine dresser )
2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
James 5:7 (King James Version)
Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.
Behold, the husbandman ( strongs 1092= a husbandman , tiller of the soil, a vine dresser )
waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
2 Timothy 2:6-7 (King James Version)
6The husbandman ( strongs 1092= a husbandman , tiller of the soil, a vine dresser )
that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits. ( Grapes? )
7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
