We have been looking into the Rapture of the Church. This is the third post in this series. Time is of the essence as this series comes to refute the, soon coming, date set. I am not lending any credence to date setting or this date. These posts are not complete in themselves rather pave the way to this end. No post, in this series is a complete study or written as an Academic Paper. In the process many links are given for research as well as resources given for a study layout. We are not intending to write a Dissertation on the Rapture rather covering the main points related to the teaching, soon to be unpacked, discussed and refuted.
Having laid out the idea of the Rapture of the Church and declaring three main texts in the last two post, we laid out a study using those three texts. We focused in on the Trump of God and the Last Trump, even a word study centering on Trump/Trumpet.
In this series conclusions await the final post. In this post we cover the first leg of the teaching in view, not yet presented. We move from a Trump to the Feast of Trumpets.
Feast of Trumpets
“Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.” –Leviticus 23:24 (KJV); (Hebrew); Cf. Leviticus 23 (AC) (NET) (BLB) (Bible Hub, KJV+S)
blowing of trumpets: 8643. teruah
Within the Jewish Holidays the seven feasts can be found. Rosh Hashana (Yom Teruah) mark the start of the High Holidays ending with Yom Kippur. This is ten days, the time between known as the Days of Awe.
Time to close. This has added to the last post Trumpets. Next post we will consider the Shmita and Jubilee (Yovel) Cycles. I am not a Jew or a Historian and have not had Jewish Studies although have attended Torah Class. I am not a Judaizers but Christian have visited Israel and studied their culture to aid understanding the Scriptures. I have found this limited study to be rather fascinating.
Listen to the two podcasts about Rosh Hashana at The Jewish Roads very good.
