This end times prophecy deception is about Jesus words regarding His return,
“But of that day and hour no one knows.” Matthew 24:36
Read literally, it’s understandable why people think it’s a heresy to claim to know when Jesus will return. And Satan doesn’t want Christians to understand it.
Ironically, Jesus spoke those words to tell spirit-led believers when He would return.
Christians over the centuries have separated themselves from the teachings about God’s appointed Holy Feast days, causing them to not understand their importance in regard to Jesus second coming.
Jesus said “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.” Matthew 15:17
The word “Feast” is translated from the Hebrew word “moed”, which means appointment.
Passover pointed to the Messiah as our Passover lamb whose blood was shed for our sins.
Unleavened Bread pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible).
First Fruits pointed to the Messiah’s resurrection as the first fruits of the righteous. (1 Cor. 15:20)
Pentecost represented God pouring out His Holy Spirit on Jesus disciples.
Trumpets represents Jesus return for His bride, where trumpets are blown and the elect are taken up.
Atonement occurs ten days after the Feast of Trumpets, when Christ will judge His Church.
Tabernacles occurs fifteen days after the Feast of Trumpets, when we celebrate the wedding feast.
The first four feast days were fulfilled by Jesus at the exact times that God foretold. For example, on Passover:
God commanded the sacrificial lamb to be inspected for several days, to verify it was blemish-free;
Jesus was inspected by the Jewish leaders, Pilate and Herod, and no blemish was found.
God commanded the sheep to be brought into the temple courtyard on the early morning of Passover;
In the early morning of Passover, Jesus was brought into the temple courtyard;
God commanded the sheep to be bound at 9am, for preparation for their sacrifice;
Jesus was bound to the cross at 9am.
God commanded the priest to sacrifice the lamb at 3pm and say “It is finished”;
Jesus took His last breath at 3pm and said “It is finished.”
Praise Jesus that He is fulfilling the appointed feasts in exacting detail.
Knowing that Jesus is exact in His fulfillment of prophecy, and knowing that the Feast of Trumpets represents Jesus return for His bride, we know the context of Jesus return.
“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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 Corinthians 15:51-52
“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: 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 4:16-17
Is it not logical that Jesus will return during the Feast of Trumpets?
To validate that, let’s look at what Jesus told us in Matthew 24:36.
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”
He was using a common Jewish expression which referred to a specific Feast of the Lord. In essence He was saying, “I am coming on the Feast of Trumpets!”
This idiom was used by a groom when asked when his wedding would be. So the groom after finding a woman to marry, would then arrive at his father’s estate, in which it could take up to two years to build.
Then it was his father that would tell him when his preparations on the bridal chamber were completed and it was time. They then would go and retrieve the bride around the fall, which is know as “The Time of Return.”
Every fall, the men from battle would return home with their King, as well as the farmers. This Jewish Idiom was said hundreds of years before Jesus used it, as it was a popular saying that meant,
“Prepare for a wedding feast and to be called out of the house to meet the groom.”
So this idiom is telling us that our Messiah will return for His bride on the Feast of Trumpets.
The Feast of Trumpets is the only Holy Feast Day (appointed time) that no man knew exactly when it would accrue.
The Feast of Trumpets occurs on the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishri, which is based on the lunar cycle.
Because a New Moon occurs every 29.5 days, the starting day of the Feast of Trumpets changes every year.
The Jewish priests had to observe the skies each day to confirm the new moon.
The illuminated part of the moon decreases in size until it’s not visible. Then a “new moon” occurs, which then increases to a full moon.
The Israelite priests had no way to know which hour it was officially considered “new.”
Just as Jesus said, NO ONE knew the exact moment that the new moon occurs.
To play it safe, the priests made it a 2-day event to be sure that the new moon occurs on one of the two days.
It could occur in a late hour of the first day or an early hour of the second day, so by making the feast two days, they’re sure it happens on one of the days.
Does it make sense that Christians should celebrate the three remaining feasts?
Do you see anything that’s not biblical about this explanation about Jesus return on the Feast of Trumpets?
Do you see that it’s not a heresy to know what day Jesus said that He would return?
We celebrate Jesus birth and His death on the cross and resurrection, so we should definitely celebrate the feast that represents His return for His bride.
Since the Feast of Atonement occurs 10 days after the Feast of Trumpets, we should fast and pray, so that we are pure and holy, and dressed in white.
Since the Feast of Tabernacles occurs 15 days after the Feast of Trumpets, we should celebrate the day that we will be united to Jesus forever.
You can see that the wedding feast does not occur until Jesus second coming, so that invalidates the teaching from some Pastors that Christians will be raptured before the supposed 7 year tribulation, and will celebrate the wedding feast, while the world is under great tribulation.
