Time

Some have set a date for the Rapture. That date is September 26, 2022. As the clock ticks toward that day I must finish this Series. This coming Monday is that day. I’m not lending credence to date setting or proposing that day. The purpose of the series is to refute the main point of their theory. I wanted to lay out a study of the Rapture and cover topics used to refine the time. We looked at three texts and extracted two topics The Trump of God and The Last Trump.

The first point is that the Feast of Trumpets points to the Rapture. The seven Jewish Festivals lay out God’s plan. The Spring and Summer Festivals have been fulfilled. The Fall Festivals have not yet been fulfilled and the Feast of Trumpets is next in line. Furthermore the Last Trump equates to the final, 100th, blast of the Feast of Trumpets. I do see the imagery in the festivals and fulfillment in Christ. However the Trump of God is sounded by God not men. This article, from Leader University on the Trump of God, points that out.

The second point is the Fig Tree represents the rebirth of Israel on May 14,1948. I interpret the Fig Tree as relating to the signs of Christ’s Second Coming. The writer of this article seems to agree and lays it out. (cf. The Parable of the Fig Tree) Furthermore the prophecy is that all the Promises Land be occupied by all Twelve Tribes each living in there allotted places. These articles points out that most Jews don’t celebrate Jubilee because they have not yet been gathered to the Land. they also explained the The Shemittah/Yovel cycle and The Fiftieth Year. A Jubilee (Yovel) can only be declared on a Shemitah (Shmita) year. The year 5782 since creation (September 7, 2021 – September 25, 2022) is a Shemitah (Shmita) year.

Third they claim we are the Fig Tree Generation. The generation that will not pass away until all these things take place. A Generation is a maximum of 80 years. See the link above that agrees with my interpretation of what Generation is in view.

Fourth the have a 3 day plan. 1 day is a 1000 years. 2 days= a 2000 year Church age and 1 day for the Millennium. Hear is there Timeline Chart or this one.

Well gonna close it up here for now. I’m not a fan of the date setters even those settling a two day Feast period and a year. The spirit of it all is to be ready anytime for you never know when He’ll return for his Bride! It would seem as the pains are coming in smaller intervals. Surly we are close to that Blessed Hope, Maranatha!

Festivals

Beloved,

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

BLB: TOOLS; Lev 23:24; h8643
EBD-T; EBD-F; ISBE
Nave’s; Torrey’s; Smith’s
HTA: The Sabbatical Year; Year of Jubilee

Dr. Constable

The Blowing of Trumpets; The Two Silver Trumpets; Provisions and Commands


The Feast of Trumpets is one of the Seven Festivals instituted by God in Leviticus 23 and Numbers 29. Particularly in Leviticus 23:23-25 and Numbers 29:1-6.

Jews have two calendar cycles agricultural and civil. 1 Tishrei is the first day of the seventh month but is the Jewish New Year. It is commonly known as Rosh Hashana, Yom 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.

Trumpets

The Trump of God and The Last Trump

(1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 15:52)

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” –1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17 (KJV); (Greek); Cf. 1 Thessalonians 4 (TR) (NET) (BLB) (Bible Hub, KJV+S)

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”-1 Corinthians 15:52 (KJV); (Greek); Cf. 1 Corinthians 15 (TR) (NET) (BLB) (Bible Hub, KJV+S)


Beloved,
The last post, Rapture, introduced the topic in view. Within that topic we now come to Trumpets. At this point The Trump of God and The Last Trump are in view.

The Trump of God: (cf. 1Th 4:16) 4536. salpigx; 2316. theos

The Last Trump: (cf. 1Co 15:52) 2078. eschatos; 4536. salpigx

Extra, no cost…
of a Trumpet: (cf. Mat 24:31) (TOOLS) (Mat 24 Bible Hub KJV+S)


Trump/Trumpet: 4536. salpigx (to sound a trumpet: 4537. salpizó) BLB: (Vine’s) (Nave’s) (Torrey’s)

Trumpet: 60 Occurrences; Trump: 2 Occurrences; G4536: 11 Occurrences; G4537: 12 Occurrences. One might ask what other Heb/Gr words have been translated as trumpet?


In Bibleology there are three people groups in view. The Nation of Israel, the Gentiles and the Church. In the Pauline epistles, again, three people groups are in view. The Spiritual Man, the Carnal Man and the Natural Man. In Eschatology we have two vantage points earth and Heaven, two perspectives God’s and man’s and two main people groups Saved and lost. In God’s prophetic plan we have three people groups The nation of Israel, the Nations and the Church. In Bible study we have two main focuses Interpretation and Application. In the consideration of any text there is only one interpretation. In application we apply the truths of Scripture. Many times principles found in one text can be applied to another text in the Application process. So it is that in some Scripture having interpretation as to the Second Coming we find Application to Scripture having interpretation as to the Rapture.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. –Psalm 119:105

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. –2 Timothy 2:15

Please see: The Gospel and Foolishness.

As time has faded away I must close having only laid out the study as the last post laid out the Rapture study. In closing the last post I promised to unpack teaching from the Date Setters as to Tishrei (Tishri) 5783 (September 26, 27 2022) and discus the trumpet of the Lord, the last trump and the Olivet Discourse. I’ll leave you with a Hymn, “When The Trumpet Of The Lord Shall Sound” Hymnary, “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder” and a spiritual song, “Ivan Parker – Midnight Cry (Live)” Lyrics, “Gold City-Midnight CryLive.

Rapture

“Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”-1 Thessalonians 4:17 (KJV)


caught up: G726 ἁρπάζω (harpazó) 14 Occurrences

harpagēsometha: ἁρπαγησόμεθα (will be caught away)

Rapture: from Rapere, The Latin Vulgate — Rapiemur


“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” –context (cf.2 Thessalonians 2:3-7; 1 Corinthians 15:52)

I believe Jesus will return for His Bride [the Church]. Those who are alive will be caught up in a twinkling of an eye at the last trump. In short, I’m a Pre-tribulation Dispensationalist. But, I didn’t write this to persuade anyone of anything.

There has been a lot of noise lately from the Date Setters as to Tishrei (Tishri) 5783 (September 26 2022). I’m not giving credence to date setting. The teaching led down some interesting rabbit holes. I enjoyed learning about Jewish costumes, faith and practice. The 7 feasts, as celebrated, are quit interesting. While enjoying the Rabbit trails I’m not buying this teaching, date setting aside. They get to Tishrei by way of last trump of Feast of Trumpets (cf. Leviticus 23; Numbers 29). They get to 2022 by two paths one is 3 day theory (3000 years) and the second is the 80 year theory. In upcoming posts I will unpack this and discus the trumpet of the Lord, the last trump and the Olivet Discourse.

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.” –1 Corinthians 1:18King James Version (KJV)

“For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” –1 Corinthians 1:21King James Version (KJV)

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.” –1 Corinthians 3:19King James Version (KJV)


The Message of the Cross

For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will thwart the cleverness of the intelligent.” Where is the wise man? Where is the expert in the Mosaic law? Where is the debater of this age? Has God not made the wisdom of the world foolish? For since in the wisdom of God the world by its wisdom did not know God, God was pleased to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching. For Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks ask for wisdom, but we preach about a crucified Christ, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles. But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. 1 Corinthians 2:18-25 (Net)

THE GOSPEL AS A CONTRADICTION TO HUMAN WISDOM 1:18—2:5

Paul set up a contrast between cleverness of speech (impressive oratory) and the Cross in verse 17. Next he developed this contrast with a series of arguments. Boasting in men impacts the nature of the gospel. He pointed out that the gospel is not a form of sophia (human wisdom). Its message of a crucified Messiah does not appeal to human wisdom (1:18-25). Second, its recipients are not especially wise in the eyes of humanity (1:26-31). Third, Paul’s preaching was not impressive in its human wisdom, but it bore powerful results (2:1-5). –Dr. Thomas L. Constable

Wisdom from God

Now we do speak wisdom among the mature, but not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are perishing. Instead we speak the wisdom of God, hidden in a mystery, that God determined before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood it. If they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But just as it is written, “Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him.” God has revealed these to us by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who among men knows the things of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So too, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God. And we speak about these things, not with words taught us by human wisdom, but with those taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual things to spiritual people. The unbeliever does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The one who is spiritual discerns all things, yet he himself is understood by no one. For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to advise him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 (Net)

THE SPIRIT’S MINISTRY OF REVEALING GOD’S WISDOM 2:6-16

Paul’s reference to the Holy Spirit’s power (vv. 4-5) led him to elaborate on the Spirit’s ministry in enlightening the minds of believers and unbelievers alike. The Corinthians needed to view ministry differently. The key to this change would be the Holy Spirit’s illumination of their thinking. People who are pursuing true wisdom (sophia) can not perceive it except as the Holy Spirit enlightens them.

Paul constructed his argument in this section with three contrasts that overlap slightly. The first contrast is between those who receive God’s wisdom and those who do not (vv. 6-10a), and the second one is the Spirit of God and the spirit of the world (vv. 10b-13). The third contrast is the “natural” person and the “spiritual” person (vv. 14-16).

(v. 14) The “natural man” is any person who does not possess the Holy Spirit, namely: unbelievers. Every human being is a natural man until he or she trusts in Christ and receives the Spirit. Paul called this type of person a “natural (Gr. psychikos) man” because he or she is only “natural” and is spiritually dead, without God. He has no supernatural Person indwelling him, and his viewpoints and ideas are exclusively the natural, human kind. He “cannot” accept (“understand”) all that God has revealed, because he does not possess the indwelling Spirit of God, who enables believers to understand spiritual matters, “that are spiritually appraised (evaluated, discerned).”

The natural person can, of course, understand the gospel and experience salvation but only when the Holy Spirit illuminates his or her understanding. Paul did not mean that an unbeliever is mentally or intellectually incapable of understanding the words of Scripture. However, an unbeliever rejects, and does not accept, everything that God wants him or her to have. One of these things is eternal life through faith in His Son. It is as though God is speaking in a language that the unbeliever does not understand (“it is foolishness to him”); he or she fails to respond properly. He or she needs an interpreter. That is a ministry that only the Holy Spirit can perform. –Dr. Thomas L. Constable

Paul said the Gospel is the power of God unto Salvation; Christ is the power of God, and the wisdom of God; and that it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. As faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God, I believe, reading and studying as well as hearing the Word can lead to both faith and edification. Human intellect can understand what is written or heard and one will either come to faith or regard it as foolishness.

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30

HE IS RISEN

And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulcher.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

And they remembered his words, Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. Then went in also that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. Then the disciples went away again unto their own home. But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre, And seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him. And when she had thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing, and knew not that it was Jesus. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

I’ll Rise Again — Dallas Holm


Someone rolled the stone away, was it a thief?
No, it was an angel.
Mary said, “He lives again.  Do you believe?”
Yes, He is my Savior.

He is risen.  Yes, my Lord is risen today.
There are linens with bloodstains,
That is all that remains
There’s no body left in that grave.

Father forgive them for they know not what they do

Each person in the story of redemption has their own perspective of what happened. However, one thing that is undeniable is that Jesus was and is the son of God. Today is a day that we remember the great sacrifice of Jesus Christ and how because of it we are saved and redeemed for ever. We are not bewildered like the disciples as we know Easter Sunday is coming! Must Read!

Gospel road 66

The night Jesus was betrayed from Peters perspective
My eyes were so heavy, a spiritual darkness had descended on the land, I could not even stay awake. I saw my Lord agonising in the garden, even sweating drops of blood! He asked me only to keep watch and I failed my task! The night was deep and thick darkness was upon us. Jesus knew what was coming.
That betrayer arrived and gave Jesus a “friendly kiss”, Jesus still called him friend! Well, he was no friend of mine to do such a thing! The guards were armed but I took out my sword and struck one of them, cutting off his ear. My Lord told me to put my sword away, “those who live by the sword will die by the sword”, then he healed the man’s ear! I was scared, we all were, no fighting back… we were…

JESUS ENTERS JERUSALEM: MORE THAN A CONQUERER

And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto the mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them.All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.” (1 Corinthians 15:1-6) Blue Letter Bible (KJV)
