[1Cor 15:46] Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is
spiritual.

[Col 2:16] Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday [festival], or of the new moon,
or of the sabbath days:
[Col 2:17] Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Two Main Rapture Verses

[1 Corinthians 15:51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
[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.

[1 Thessalonians 4:16] 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:
[1 Thessalonians 4:17] 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 4:18] Therefore comfort one another with these words.



 

[Pss 47:5] God is gone up [ascended] with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.

[Pss 98:6] With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.

[Pss 89:15] Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
[Pss 89:17] For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.


Judgment seat of Christ/Feast of Trumpets

Note the similarities in Neh 8 to the following:

[2Cor 5:10] For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body,
according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Judgement seat means, literally, a RAISED PLATFORM

[Rom 14:10] But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the
judgment seat of Christ.

The description of the Judgement seat of Christ is completed in Daniel 7, and Revelation 4 & 5, both of which allude to the rapture,
revelations 4 starting out with it.

This is described as "proof positive" scriptural proof that the rapture will occur on the Feast of Trumpets, because the imagry of the
rehearsals and quotes from this raised platform/judement seat and quotes from the New Testament match up completely.

Apocraphal book feast of trumpet verses:

[Ezra 3:5] And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the LORD that
were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the LORD.
[Ezra 3:6] From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the LORD. But the foundation of the
temple of the LORD was not yet laid.
[Ezra 3:7] They gave money also unto the masons, and to the carpenters; and meat, and drink, and oil, unto them of Zidon, and to
them of Tyre, to bring cedar trees from Lebanon to the sea of Joppa, according to the grant that they had of Cyrus king of Persia.

weeping, and with mourning:
[Joel 2:15] Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
[Joel 2:16] Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that
suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD
shall call.

                      [Dan 12:2] And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some
                      to shame and everlasting contempt.



[Isa 57:1] The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none
                      considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

                      [Isa 57:2] He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.


                      [Isa 26:2] Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

                      [Isa 26:3] Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.



[Isa 26:19] Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell
                      in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

                      [Isa 26:20] Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were
                      for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

                      [Isa 26:21] For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:
                      the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Read daily for 30 days prior to the Feast of Trumpets:

[Pss 27:1] The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

[Pss 27:2] When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

[Pss 27:3] Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

[Pss 27:4] One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

[Pss 27:5] For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

[Pss 27:6] And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

[Pss 27:7] Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

[Pss 27:8] When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

[Pss 27:9] Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

[Pss 27:10] When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.

[Pss 27:11] Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

[Pss 27:12] Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

[Pss 27:13] I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

[Pss 27:14] Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.


There is much, much more scriptural imagry that would be fulfilled by a Rapture on the Feast of Trumpets, but all of the imagry in
the New Testament that refers to this Jewish feast is not described in full detail in the Old Testament of the Bible, it is difficult to
know and understand the imagry and symbols surrounding the Feast if you are a Gentile, or Non-Jew.  For example, I do not find
scriptures that say that this is a wedding feast, but the Jews say it is.  Well, from scripture we know that the Rapture is the wedding
of the Church, the Bride, to Christ, the bridegroom.  Further, it is the feast of trumpets that is described when the rapture is said to
happen at the "last trump".  You can find scriptures about the last trump being at the rapture, but there are no scriptures that say the
"last trump" occurs during the "Feast of Trumpets".  So, you have to rely on knowledge outside the Bible, coming from Jewish
tradition.  Of course, if it were not for Jewish counting out the years, and excluding the years of their captivity to arrive at 5760, we
probably would have never seen the significance of this upcoming Holiday.

God Bless the Jews of Isreal!
