Hi Doves,
Jesus said, "...I am the Resurrection..." (John 11:25)
The Word also says,
"...Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the First-fruits [that is, the Resurrection] of those who have fallen asleep." (1Cor.15:20)
This plainly tells us that WHEN ever the resurrection and translation of the saints occurs, it will be on the Day of First-fruits!
Now consider the following:
The Lord said,
"Whoever eats My flesh [the bread] and drinks my blood [the wine] has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the Last Day." (John 6:54)
The "Last Day" in the above verse, is the Day of first-fruits! [16th of Nisan]
It will be 3 Days after we observe the Lord's Supper as He told us to!
For we read,
"...and when He [the Lord] had given thanks He broke it [that is, the bread] and said,
"Take eat, this is My body which is broken for you; do this [on the 14th of Nisan] in remembrance of Me."
In the same manner He also took the cup after Supper, saying,
"This cup is the new covenant in my My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, [on the 14th of Nisan] in remembrance of Me
For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes.
I believe "till He comes" in the above verse is referring to the Lord's coming on the Day of First-fruits!
On the 16th of Nisan 33 AD,
"...the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection..." [Matt.27:52,53]
I believe that the resurrection of these saints, on the Day of first-fruits, is a foretaste, a preview, if you will, of the rapture to occur, on the Day of first-fruits at the End of the Christian Church Age.
I believe we are to observe the Lord's Supper on Wednesday the 27th of March 2013 [14th of Nisan], and then expect the Lord to come for us, 3 days later on Friday the 29th of March 2013 [16th of Nisan]!
This is why we read,
"After two days [the 14th and 15th of Nisan] He [that is, the Lord Jesus Christ] will revive us; On the third day [16th of Nisan] He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight [that is, in heaven with Him]." [Hos.6:2]
The Day of first-fruits is the Last Day.
The Day of first-fruits is the Third Day.
The Day of first-fruits is the Day of the Resurrection and Translation of the saints.
Let us continue to watch, with great anticipation, for the Lord's coming on First-fruits!
