We know the day Jesus is NOT coming! by Pat Franklin

Are you expecting Jesus to come back for us (Christians) this year?  Someone has predicted a May date, so that is one day He definitely will NOT come, because no man will know the day nor the hour.

 

Having said that, there is a Jewish feast, the Feast of Trumpets, which at the time Jesus was on earth was called by the Jews ‘No one knows the day nor the hour.’  That feast was a ‘moveable feast’ because it depended on when the new moon appeared and if it can be seen, because overcast skies might hide the moon that night.  In that case the feast would be delayed one or two days until the High Priest decided the time was right. The feast began with a trumpet blast.

We believe that the seven Jewish feasts are a prophetic timeline of human history.  The first three were literally fulfilled in Jesus’ day.  These were:  Passover (fulfilled when the Lamb of God was sacrificed at Calvary); Unleavened Bread (leaven is always a symbol of sin, and Christ was the unleavened bread, because only He had no sin); and First Fruits (fulfilled at the Resurrection, when Jesus was the first fruits, the first to rise from the dead).  The fourth feast, Pentecost, was 50 days later, on a Sunday, when the Holy Spirit came and the church was born.

 

Those are the spring feasts in Israel. Then there is a long, hot summer (which typifies the church age).  This ends with the three autumn feasts, still unfulfilled in history.  They begin with the Feast of Trumpets, which we believe represents the Rapture of the church, when we meet Jesus in the air and go with Him to Heaven for seven years.  While we are away, all hell breaks out on earth in the Great Tribulation, and there is a most important feast to be fulfilled – the Day of Atonement, which is when the remnant of the Jewish people  will mourn and finally recognize the Lord Jesus as their Messiah.

 

The final feast is the Feast of Tabernacles, which represents the 1000 year millennial reign of Jesus Christ on this earth, when we return with Him to a renewed and restored earth. 

 

These wonderful truths have been lost to most churches, but it is high time we all got clued up on them!  Start learning about them by reading Lev 23, and get the teachings of Dr Arnold Fruchtenbaum, Jewish Bible teacher of Ariel Ministries, San Antonio, Texas.  He came to England years ago and that is when  I first heard this great message.  If you love Jesus, you must be a disciple, and that means you must study and learn more. There is always more to learn.  The Christian life never gets boring! 

 So, the point is – Jesus IS coming;  He is at the very door. Are you ready to meet Him in the air?

Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry. (Idol - anything or anyone who is prayed to or given the reverence due to God alone. Idolatry - giving excessive honor to a person or thing and ascribing them with godlike power.)
Acts of the Apostles 17:16
