Bible Prophesy / Pre Tribulation Rapture / Jewish Wedding / Feast of Trumpets / Mark of the Beast
 
The Gospel & Salvation Message (my 'statement of faith' from the King James Bible)

[Rom 5:8] But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
[1John 1:8] If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
[1John 1:9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
[Rom 10:9] That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
[Rom 10:10] For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
[Mat 10:32] Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

I built this website to better understand and teach Bible Prophesy and it now contains over 100 internal url web pages.  Almost all of them are linked to from this index page.  I am not affiliated with any religous organization.  No King but Jesus!  You, the readers, who email me scripture, keep me on my toes and accountable.  [Prov 27:17] "Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."  I also use prayer.  So, if you take issue with anything presented in these pages, PLEASE email me the scriptures that you think I need to know.    --Jason  8-)

I started my studies with The Mark of the Beast (666) [likely to be a biochip implant!] linking over 100 other webpages.
I also did a study on The Seal of God [maybe as Holy Spirit manifestations?]:

Please [2Tim 2:15] "Study to shew thyself approved unto God..." and be like the Bereans who [Acts 17:11] "...searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."

The Bible tells you how to interpret Bible Prophesy: (1) Stories & parallels are prophesies. (2) There are multiple fulfillments and unmentioned time gaps.
The sabbath days & Jewish Festivals are a shadow & prophesy of things to come!
[Col 2:16] Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, 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.

  10. Pseudo-Ephraem's Pre Tribulation Rapture Statement (c. 374-627) All the saints and elect of God are gathered together before the tribulation, which is to come, and are taken to the Lord, in order that they may not see at any time the confusion which overwhelms the world because of our sins.

The scriptures define a marriage as being a week long event.  (Bridal week) = (Tribulation week)
Regardless of when the feast is in these verses (not at the end), the time of intimacy (the bride being with the bridegroom sealed away in the bridal chamber) begins at the start of the bridal week, and this is what we look forward to in the pre tribulation rapture. And if you read these accounts, you will see that deception in the stories probably would not have happened if the feast were held at the end of the week.

Judges 14:1-18 ...And Samson made a feast there, as was customary for bridegrooms. ...If you can give me the answer within the seven days of the feast... She cried the whole seven days of the feast.

Genesis 29:22-28 So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. ... Finish this daughter's bridal week 


Not everybody is the bride. Not all are even friends of the bridegroom. Some are invited guests to the marriage supper of the wedding.

[John 3:29] He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

[Mat 11:11] Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

[Rev 19:9] And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 


Summary of reasons why Christians expect to see
the rapture happen on the Feast of Trumpets / Rosh Hashanna.

1.  All the Spring Feasts were fulfilled at Christ's first coming, and on the exact day of the feast.  All the Fall Feasts picture the second advent, and the Feast of Trumpets is the first of the fall feasts.
2.  The Feast of Trumpets is when the "last trump" of 1 Cor 15 is blown.
3.  It is known as the Wedding of the Messiah, and the Church is the Bride of Christ, and the rapture is when the Church is caught up to heaven to be wed with Christ.
4.  Feast of Trumpets happens on the "new moon", which is 29.5 days after the last one, meaning it might occur on the 29th or 30th day, no body knows for sure.  "Of that day or hour no man knows" is an expression referring to this feast.
5.  "Of that day or hour no man knows, but my Father only" is an expression used by a groom when asked when his wedding will be.  He says this because it is his Father that will tell him when his preparations on the bridal chamber are completed and it is time.
6.  The "Open Door" of the rapture in Matt 25, and Rev. 4:1 is a symbol of the Feast of Trumpets.  [Ezek 46:1] "Thus says the Lord GOD: The gate of the inner court that faces east shall be shut on the six working days; but on the sabbath day it shall be opened and on the day of the new moon it shall be opened.
7.  We are directly told that this Feast of Trumpets new moon festival is a shadow of Christ's return in Col 2:16,17
8.  There are seven days of awe in between the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement.  These picture the seven years of tribulation.  Atonement pictures Satan being defeated and cast away at the end of tribulaion.  If you add the two day Trumpets feast, and the day of atonement, the 7 days of awe are "ten days of tribulation" as in Rev. 2:10.
9.  In the Jewish Wedding, a marriage takes place over a period of time known as the "bridal week".  During the bridal week, the groom and bride have sex in the bridal chamber.  At the end of the week, there is a marriage supper.  Compare Judges 14, Rev. 19, and Gen. Genesis 29:22-28  This bridal week will be the tribulation week on earth, while the bride of Christ is in heaven.
10. In the Jewish Wedding, the groom comes for his bride "like a thief in the night" to take her away and into the bridal chamber for the bridal week at his father's house.
11.  The Feast of Trumpets is also known as the coronation of the Messiah, when he will start reigning as king, thus the beginning of the "Day of the Lord", which includes the tribulation.
12.  It is also time for the bema judgment, or the judgement of the works of the righteous, and judgement must begin at the house of the Lord.

[2Cor 11:2] For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

    The return of the Jews to modern Day Isreal from Russia and the whole world is a fulfillment of Bible Prophesy:
    [Jer 23:7.11] Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
    [Jer 23:8] But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
    [Isa 43:5] Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
    [Isa 43:6] I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
    [Deut 30:3] That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

    Why do I quote so many scriptures, and say so little?

    [Prov 17:27.7] He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.

    [Prov 1:6.2] To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. [Prov 1:7] The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

    If a person or the Holy Spirit shows me something, I go straight to the Book and open an online Bible to research it; go to

    http://goon.stg.brown.edu/bible_browser/pbform.shtml
    and under "Consider each search string to be:" check either box:
    a substring (e.g., iful)
    a regular expression (e.g., beaut(y|iful))
    Then select Retrieve from: King James Version
    Finally, type in words on the subject you want to research; mark, gold, prayer, etc.
    That's how you can do do your part to fulfill prophesy;

    [Daniel 12:4] But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

  • Here are scriptures about the Holy Spirit as found in the Bible

    These "eagles" claim to be modern-day prophets of God I find much of their work edifying, exhorting, corrective. As always, check everything said by scripture.

    [Acts 17:11.23] These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

    And don't read too much junk on the web at the neglect of reading scripture (I'm guilty of this most times myself), after all

    [Ecclesiastes 12:12] And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

    Over 112 different websites all about what "online" Prophets are saying. Most are saying that Jesus is coming back soon (some saying later this year before y2k?!) and He is flooding his people with the Holy Spirit again, and will continue to pour out His Holy Spirit like a flood on all His people both to santify His Bride, but also to witness to the ends of the earth. The main call, the main message is that Jesus Christ is seeking intimacy, a deep love from his people, searching people's hearts, calling all to turn to Him instead of focusing on the troubles or pleasures of the world. This fits with scripture;

    [Mat 22:37.15] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [Mat 22:38] This is the first and great commandment. [Mat 22:39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [Mat 22:40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    [Mark 12:30.12] And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.[Mark 12:31] And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

    [Luke 10:27.15] And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

    I never wanted to write on any topic when I first made this webpage. All I wanted to do was quote the Bible, and other people's webpages.

    Gold: I think its market-manipulated low price must continue to decline as long as the current world monetary system is in place. In a collapse, it is the only real money, and I think it is likely that the AntiChrist will use it as the basis for his 666 mark of the beast system. Thus, during the era of chaos that the AntiChrist steps into, gold might be used for commerce, it is the Biblically approved form of money, but, in and of itself, will not provide an escape the 666 system that will swiftly move into place to trap all men during the Great Tribulation. The dollar, and all fiat currencies are an abomination of accurate weights and measures, and embody dishonesty and fraud at their core. Gold, is, indeed, a corruptable thing.

    The last piece of advice the Lord Jesus Christ gave to the lukewarm Loadician Church before the rapture was:

    [Rev 3:18] I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

    I agree that there is a profund spiritural truth there; to seek the Holy Spirit and the Blood of Christ above all things, but I can't help but realize the literal truth to the statement as well, when you consider the information in the essay "Gold Price under differing scenarios".
