"Feast of Trumpets or Pentecost?"


 
Dear Doves

The official days of Feast of Trumpets 2011 are fast approaching. Some people had dreams that the rapture will even happen before the end of Septempber 2011. 

I am expecting something to happen at Feast of Trumpets 2011, but not necessarily the rapture. Without any doubt,  the fulfilment of Feast of Trumpets (as well as Day of Atonement and Tabernacles) happens when Jesus returns back to the earth, but that's NOT the rapture (except if you believe in a Post-Trib rapture)! In case that the rapture happens precisely 7 years prior to Jesus second coming, Feast of Trumpets is still a very hot candidate for the rapture.

When I first read about Pentecost being a candidate for the rapture some time in 2010, I completely rejected it. Feast of Trumpets somehow sounded good and was simple to understand. Only after I took the time to carefully study the arguments (presented by various Doves) for a rapture at Pentecost in 2011, I eventually changed my mind. The clues about a rapture at (or slightly prior to) Pentecost are even more overwhelming than the clues about a rapture at the Feast of Trumpets, but it demands you to study the Bible in much more detail to realize it.

  • A rapture at Pentecost supports a Mid-Trib rapture, as Feast of Trumpets always happens ~3.5 years after Pentecost.
  • A rapture at Feast of Trumpets supports a Pre-Trib rapture, as Feast of Trumpets happens 7years after Feast of Trumpets.
  • Let's not forget the possibility that it is neither the official date of Pentecost nor Feast of Trumpets, or that the calendars we are using are wrong and due to that we simply fail to know it.
  • There is also a possibility for two Raptures (Pre-Trib + Mid-Trib) etc...
All we can really do is: To watch, pray, work and most importantly to be ready at any time!

Watch & Pray!
Maranatha!
