Dear Doves,For your discernment, I am not setting a date just a possibility.The Word of God tells us that Jesus showed up at the Feast of Tabernacles in the MIDDLE OF THE FEAST.If Tabernacles foreshadows the "ingathering" of the saints at the rapture and parallels Jesus' arrival at the feast when the feast was HALF OVER, the 17-18 day of the seventh month is a hint as to when He shows up this year to take His Bride to Glory. We have reason to celebrate!The number "18" means perfection of order. The Bible contains eight accounts of individual resurrections, (besides the Lord or the saints), three in the Old Testament, three in the New Testament and two in the book of Acts. There are 8 songs in the Old Testament, (besides the Psalms), the eighth song, last in order to the first seven, is Isaiah 26, which declares, "My dead body shall rise, Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust." Jesus alos rose from the dead on the 18th of Nisan.Day three and a half day would be October 5 according to the Karate Korner calendar, the date based on the sighting of the new moon.These are the dates of Sukkot:Sukkot Day 1 -- October 2 (Tishri 15)Sukkot Day 2 -- October 3 (Tishri 16)Sukkot Day 3 -- October 4: MIDDLE OF THE FEAST (Tishri 17)Sukkot Day 4 -- October 5: MIDDLE OF THE FEAST (Tishri 18)Sukkot Day 5 -- October 6: (Tishri 19)Sukkot Day 6 -- October 7 (Tishri 20)Sukkot Day 7 -- October 8 (Tishri 21)Day 3 starts in Israel sundown, October 4, at 5:20 p.m.Day 3 1/2 starts at 5:20 a.m. in Israel on October 5.If a day is based on 24 hours, day 3 1/2 will be over on October 6 at 5:20 p.m. Jerusalem time.Doing the math for your own time zone, if day 3 1/2 is the date of the rapture, watch times begin in the USA:Pacific Time: 8:20 p.m. Thursday, October 4 -- 8:20 p.m. Friday, October 5.Eastern Time: 11:20 p.m. Thursday, October 4 -- 11:20 p.m. Friday, October 5Please note:THERE IS NO EIGHTH DAY OF THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES!Shemini Atzeret, celebrated on the 8th day, is NOT part of Sukkot and the laws of Sukkot do not extend to this day. The eight day is a separate holy day. The Feast of Tabernacles is a seven day feast, not an 8 day feast.
"Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, the fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for SEVEN DAYS unto the LORD. On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein" (Leviticus 23: 34 -36).
Three and a half days from the beginning of the Feast, Jesus then went to Jerusalem "not openly, but as it were in secret" (John 7:9).Will Jesus again come to the Feast of Tabernacles secretly, "as a thief in the night" for His Bride on day 3 1/2, the midst of the feast?For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle is taken down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in heaven. For indeed in this we groan, greatly desiring to be clothed with our dwelling place out of heaven. ( 2 Corinthians 5:1)Will this feast day of the seventh month day 17/18 be fulfilled by the rapture?Jewish Messiah, Yeshua of Nazareth, who died for the sins of the whole world, please come and get us now.Amen and Amen.
