"To Lisa Taylor re
rapture on Feast of Tabernacles."
Lisa, I just can't thank you enough for that
amazing article. I hope you don't mind but I posted the
link to it on my Facebook. We have been without a
church home for a long time and so I constantly find myself
hungry to learn something and your letter was
amazing! I learned so much!!! I loved
the information on Jonah as I had never heard it before, and
found myself all teary when reading the part about Jesus' birth
even obeying the command to dwell in a temporary
dwelling. I will be re-reading it many times today
and you have given me much to think about and share with my
I have one question I hope you don't mind answering. I am
not sure I can even adequately put it into words but I'll
try. I have this sense that if the feasts are to be
signs to us (and they are of course), then the only way to make
sense of them would be if they happened in order of the events
they are a type of. So if we have Jesus death,
resurrection, and the birth of the church being foretold in the
spring feasts (in order), then the rapture, tribulation, and
second coming could be foretold in the fall feasts.
But the Last Trump would be the last day of the feast and it
seems that the rapture should happen at the beginning of the
week, have the week be symbolic of the tribulation and the Last
day of the feast be symbolic of the second coming.
Not sure if that makes sense or not. So when I read
your letter and it makes SOOOOO much sense, I am left wondering
how the other events surrounding his second coming are
symbolized in the feasts.
Thank you again for that amazing article, words can't describe
how much joy I got from it! I LOVE seeing how the
scriptures fit together like that. God bless you!
Your sister in Christ,
