(ThyBlackMan.com) Yeshua, His name meaning “Yehovah is our salvation”, fulfilled the four Spring feasts when He came to Earth the first time. That was four feasts fulfilled in one trip, however the remaining three feasts will occur centuries apart. Concerning Yeshua, His own arm (Isaiah 63:5) brought salvation to mankind. How does one obtain that salvation? You do so by either obeying the directive given by Peter (Acts 2:38, the first altar call), or repeating the example given by Paul (Acts 19:4-6). The church is very much structured like the house of Israel. Jacob was the head, and all his offspring were called the “children of Israel”. Yet each offspring was identified by having lineage to one of Jacob’s twelve sons, known as the “12 Tribes of Israel”. In order to become of the house of Israel, you either were born of one of the tribes, or were converted by choice, known as being a proselyte. Some tribes carried more prestige than some others.
While the twelve apostles whom Yeshua taught were living, they persuaded other Jews to become part of the Church of Yeshua. The apostle Paul mainly preached to gentiles, converting them from sinner to saint. Some of the early saints compared their spiritual lineage to each other, such as can be found in 1 Corinthians 1:12. While later, including the rest of us, are mere proselytes, being drawn to and accepting the new birth. We do not follow Yeshua
The book of Acts tells us how to be saved. The twenty-two epistles, written by the Apostles to those who were already saved, tell us how to live a life of holiness, looking forward to the occurrence of only one of two things. Either we die to end this life, or Yeshua comes to change our mortal bodies into glorified bodies, and takes us to heaven…, for 1,000 years. This brings us to another
point that is generally not understood.
For centuries, false and ignorant teachers have been misleading people, saying that the rapture will
come before the time of the tribulation. There also have been plenty of “rapture predicting” ministers,
causing a lot of chaos, basing their beliefs on wishful thinking at best, or intentional deceiving at
worse. Read the following:
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
The “failing away” is a translation error. It should be interpreted as “rebellious stand”. The evil beast will make a rebellious stand, declaring himself to be “God”, about the time the new Temple is completed on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Now, if you have issues with what Paul said, let’s examine what Yeshua said:
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Let’s add to that the words written by John:
And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
Yes, a series of trumpets will sound. Let’s go back to Paul:
1 Corinthians 15:52
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.
Paul said that the rapture will not come until after the LAST trump. That means after the seventh trumpet. Therefore at least eight trumpets have to sound, and the anti-Christ has to be revealed FIRST, before the rapture. Not only that, but the revealing of the anti-Christ, the mark of the beast, and the flying locusts with long hair and teeth like lions, will be tormenting mankind for five months. All of this occurs before the sixth trumpet sounds, leaving the seventh and eighth trumpet being yet to sound. Can you see how ridiculous the “pre-tribulation rapture” fairytale is?
While this is going on, the last three and a half years of the great tribulation is upon the Earth. Simultaneously, Enoch, and Elijah will be prophesying against the beast, also known as the anti-Christ. This (I believe) is when the new Temple will begin construction on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. For 42 months, before they are slain, the two witnesses will carry on their testimony, before the rapture of the saints occurs.
Here is where the fifth feast, the first feast of the Autumn, comes into play, being the Day of Trumpets. By knowing that two witnesses have to report the Moon sighting to the high priest, it should be expected that the two witnesses will resurrect at the sighting of the renewed Moon in Jerusalem, and be taken to Heaven to give their report to the High Priest, namely Yeshua, before the last trumpet is sounded.
There are least three things that must occur first. The man of sin revealed, the two witnesses resurrected, and the eighth trumpet must sound. Why teach anything else concerning the rapture? It would not surprise me if the eighth trumpet sounded, signifying the start of the Day of Trumpets.
When will it happen? Again, I would not be surprised if it’s in the September/October time frame of a certain year. I am of the opinion that the sign of Comet Shoemaker/Levi-9 was given to mankind by Yehovah. There were 21 impacts by a fragmented comet in a formation never seen before by mankind. It was nearly a straight line of twenty-three bodies, impossible to have been (accidently) created by nature. For seven days, twenty-one of the fragments hit Jupiter an average of 18 hours apart. Two of the fragments (witnesses?) were lost tract of.
The seven days of twenty-one impacts began on the pagan date of July 16, 1994. Yet on Yehovah’s calendar given to Israel, it was the ninth day of the fifth month (9th of AV). The ninth day of AV, twenty-one years after Shoemaker/Levi-9, was July 26 2015. If something major begins on the Temple Mount (and elsewhere) in the January/February timeframe of 2019, then we know certain developments will follow. If not, I have no clue, and will have to wait and see if I live to endure the “last days”.
Finally, before the rapture takes place, the armies of the anti-Christ shall gather in Armageddon to make war against Yeshua and His angels. Read Matthew 24, and Revelation 19. The anti-Christ, and the false prophet (pretending to be Jesus?) shall be the first ones cast into the Lake of Fire. Next, Satan is bound and put in the pit, to stay for 1,000 years. So now, we have more than six things that will occur before the rapture takes place. One, the two witnesses will come back to Earth about the time that the new Temple is being constructed. Two, close to the feast of dedication of the Temple, the anti-Christ will make his rebellious stand. Three, the “mark of the beast” will come into play. Four, the false prophet will deceive many with his “miracles”.
Five, the two witnesses will be killed by the anti-Christ, and will rise from being dead and laying exposed in the street for 84 hours, and return to Yeshua in Heaven. Six, Yeshua will return to Earth with His angels to fight the first war in Armageddon. And seven, Satan will be imprisoned, and will remain so for the next 1,000 years. Then, after all of that, the dead in Christ shall rise, and along with the still living saints, their bodies will be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST Trumpet.
This occurs around the Day of Trumpets. The day of Atonement and the Feast of Tabernacles are centuries later, covered in Part 7G.
