In 1999, I predicted a Rapture for Sept. 10-11th, the Feast of Trumpets. Below is a cut and paste from my index page on Sept. 13, 1999 left in full, with nothing altered. All the links are also working. Here is my formal apology:

For all those who are reading this for the first time, I was one of the loudest voices on the newsgroups speaking about a "Rapture on Feast of Trumpets" this for Sept. 1999.

I'm sorry. I was wrong. I was a prideful idiot. I deceived myself. I have spoken presumptuously and deserve death under the Law according to Deuteronomy... And I deceived others who believed me. I lusted after the promise of the Kingdom, and through my pride and arrogance, I thought I could divine the time, and/or that I was worthy enough to be given divine revelation. Obviously, I was preaching out of my vain imagination, because I came to the wrong conclusions. Nothing happened! I was wrong! I'm sorry!

Do you want to know what happened? My thoughts on how I went so wrong?

All the scriptures that will be fulfilled if there is a rapture on  Rosh HaShana. (5760, Sept. 11th, 1999:)

No man knows the day or hour scriptures.
The theif in the night scriptures.
All the bride of christ references.

The "last trump" verse.
All the "open door" references.
The tribulation ten days verse.
The confirmation of two witnesses verses.

In addition, there are many prophetic visions, and bible codes, and other interesting scriptural numbering coincidences that support this date, that can be found all over the web, at the following locations:

www.watch.org --bible codes
www.fivedoves.com --visions

"Tishri 1" is 1999 if you take a day as a year.

Here are the rapture parallels to be found in our own new year's celebration:
1. People stay "awake" for the celebration.
2. "End of the world" type countdown
3. Loud "trumpet"-like noisemakers & people "shout".
4. Finding that special someone to kiss, as in the "marriage".
5. The heart of the celebration comes in the "twinkling of an eye" at "the midnight cry".
6. It represents a "new birth" of "baby new year"
7. There is an old tradition that says it might be the 'end of the world'
8. It's also a time known where you get to completely start over, totally afresh, as the people raptured will be "made perfect" at that time, and also "born again" as they enter the Kingdom.

Now, this date, Sept. 11th, is the JEWISH NEW YEAR! and has many of the same themes, but the parallels are more clear, and more relavant. Instead of finding someone to kiss, it's known as the "wedding festival", which stands for the marriage of the Bride of Christ, etc.

Also, there are some rapture parallels between traditional weddings as well:
The woman wears a white, spotless clean robe.
She is carried through the open door of the threshold of the house by the man.
She is hidden from the groom until the ceremony.
There is a honeymoon where the bride and groom get away from the world afterwards.

Rev. 12 will be fulfilled literally by the placement of the stars, moon, and sun on Sept. 11th, 1999.  It has appeared three times before, in each preceeding year on this date, and will be the last and final time it will appear all together, and then will not appear again for 29,000 years.

add 576 = 18 = 666
third day & 6 days = 666
666 is Satan's mark, as in "On your mark, get set, go!" in that when the rapture happens, he will no longer be restrained according to 2 Thess, and the AntiChrist can be revealed.

In early fall, 30 days before Rosh Ha'Shanah, the season of Teshuvah begins; teshuvah means to
return or repent (during this period the people are to examine their lives and repent before it is too
late).

From http://aplus-software.com/thglory/rapture2.htm

Thus, the eclipse on Aug. 11th, heralds the 30 days prior to Sept. 11th, in fulfillment of "before the coming of the Son of Man the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give it's light"

Behold!  The Bridegroom Cometh!

Since Yom Teruah is on Rosh Chodesh (first day of the month), and since, the sun will be darkened, this implies a solar eclipse as the moon is always between the sun and the moon at Rosh Chodesh

Preparation for Rosh Hashana should include - in addition to the daily shofar blast, the 27th Psalm, penitential prayers, visiting the cemetery and dispensing charity - an intensive study of the Rosh Hashana Machzor.

Scripture clearly states, "no man knows the day or the hour", and this is true of the start of Rosh Hashanna, Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets.  It might be Sept 10th or 11th, 1999, or Trishi 1, 5760.

The day is determined by two witnesses.  The two witnesses of Revelation begin their 3.5 year testimony at the start of the 7 year tribulation, which begins after the rapture/wedding.

Scripture says, you will arise at the sound of the last trump, and the last trump is sounded at this Jewish festival.

It is the end of 6 days since the creation of man.

It is the end of 2 days since Christ.

It is the end of the 50th year, the Jubilee of Isreal becomming a nation in 1948.

another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/2175/chap7.html  All About the Feast of Trumpets and the Jewish Wedding Ceremony

In the Jewish Tradition, the groom comes for the bride like a theif in the night, at a time when she knows not.  And when he came, he came with an awaking shout, with the blowing of a trumpet.  This, after leaving to prepare a room for the bride in his father's house.

They stay in the wedding chamber for 7 days, (during the 7 year tribulation)

Blood on the white sheets was proof of virginity, and is a symbol of white robes being the blood of Jesus.

The marriage supper takes place after the week, as seen in Rev 19 & 20.

[Lev 23:22] And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when
thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am
the LORD your God.

[Lev 23:23] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

[Lev 23:24.3] 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.
 

[Num 29:1.3] And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile
work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.

A trumpet blast signifies the arrival and crowing of a King.  The rapture is both the arrival of the King of Kings, and of the time of the crowing of his bride, who is to reign as King with Christ in Heaven.

And if you go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresses you, then you shall blow an alarm with the trumpets
("veharei'otem b'hatzotzrot"); and you shall be remembered ("veniz'kartem") before the Lord your God, and you shall be saved
from your enemies
 
 

"On this day our hearts are full of fear and trembling."

[Phil 2:12] Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
