RAPTURE and Rosh Hashanah

Leviticus 23:23-25

King James Version

23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

24 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.

25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: 

but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.


This 26th September 2022, Israel will celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

What does the feast of trumpets have to do with the Rapture, and the salvation of Jews?

It takes a born again Jew, Amir Tsarfati, to explain the prophetic interpretation of such a feast, through this video:

"The True Meaning of Rosh Hashanah"


He turns to the Bible, to put feasts in perspective.

Colossians 2:16-17

King James Version

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:

17 Which are a shadow of things to come; 

but the body is of Christ.


Another verse comes to mind:

Hebrews 10:1-6

King James Version

10 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, 

and not the very image of the things, 

can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year 

continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? 

because that the worshippers once purged 

should have had no more conscience of sins.

3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again 

made of sins every year.

4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats 

should take away sins.

5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, 

he saith, 

Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, 

but a body hast thou prepared me:

6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin 

thou hast had no pleasure.


Tsarfati also reminds unbelieving Jews:

Zechariah 12:10

King James Version

10 And I will pour upon the house of David, 

and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, 

the spirit of grace and of supplications: 

and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, 

and they shall mourn for him, 

as one mourneth for his only son, 

and shall be in bitterness for him, 

as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.


In God's plan of salvation, a veil has been placed upon Israel.

Romans 11:8

King James Version

8 (According as it is written, 

God hath given them the spirit of slumber, 

eyes that they should not see, 

and ears that they should not hear;) 

unto this day.


Only when they believe in JESUS, will the veil be lifted.

2 Corinthians 3:14-18

King James Version

14 But their minds were blinded: 

for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away 

in the reading of the old testament; 

which vail is done away in Christ.

15 But even unto this day, 

when Moses is read, 

the vail is upon their heart.

16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 

the vail shall be taken away.

17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 

there is liberty.

18 But we all, 

with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, 

are changed into the same image from glory to glory, 

even as by the Spirit of the Lord.


GOD has a purpose for Israel's temporary blindness.

Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 For I would not, brethren, 

that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, 

lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; 

that blindness in part is happened to Israel, 

until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.


Amir Tsarfati reminds us, that we not sensationalize anything:

"The feast of trumpets is for Israel, 

and the Rapture can happen any day now."


"This September 26 is not about the Rapture, 

but Israel's celebrating the feast of trumpets."


"Let's wish them happy Rosh Hashanah, 

and pray for their salvation."


There is really only one Rabbi, one Master, one GOD, and one way to be saved.

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, the truth, and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.


Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, 

and thy house.


1 Corinthians 15:1-4

King James Version

15 Moreover, brethren, 

I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, 

which also ye have received, 

and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, 

if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, 

unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:

GOD's RAINBOW

 

Genesis 9:13

King James Version

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.


The rainbow, is GOD's rainbow.

Used, according to His purpose.

We found THREE instances wherein GOD used a rainbow:


ONE, as testimony of His covenant with Noah, and his sons.

In total contrast to how the world is using it now.

Here's what the Bible says:

Genesis 9:8-17

King James Version

8 And God spake unto Noah, 

and to his sons with him, saying,

9 And I, 

behold, 

I establish my covenant with you, 

and with your seed after you;

10 And with every living creature that is with you, 

of the fowl, 

of the cattle, 

and of every beast of the earth with you; 

from all that go out of the ark, 

to every beast of the earth.

11 And I will establish my covenant with you, 

neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; 

neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12 And God said, 

This is the token of the covenant which I make 

between me and you and every living creature that is with you, 

for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, 

when I bring a cloud over the earth, 

that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15 And I will remember my covenant, 

which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; 

and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; 

and I will look upon it, 

that I may remember the everlasting covenant 

between God and every living creature of all flesh 

that is upon the earth.

17 And God said unto Noah, 

This is the token of the covenant, 

which I have established between me 

and all flesh that is upon the earth.


TWO, in reflection of His GLORY.

As shown in prophet Ezekiel's vision:

Ezekiel 1:28

King James Version

28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud 

in the day of rain, 

so was the appearance of the brightness round about. 

This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. 

And when I saw it, 

I fell upon my face, 

and I heard a voice of one that spake.


THREE, used in manifestation of GOD's supreme power.

As shown on this third verse:

Revelation 10:1-4

King James Version

10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, 

clothed with a cloud: 

and a rainbow was upon his head, 

and his face was as it were the sun, 

and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a little book open: 

and he set his right foot upon the sea, 

and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, 

as when a lion roareth: 

and when he had cried, 

seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, 

I was about to write: 

and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, 

Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, 

and write them not.


Beware how we use the rainbow.

It cannot serve man's desecrating purpose.

The rainbow is GOD's rainbow.

It is sacred to the LORD.

Believers abide by that.

VALID questions


John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


In these curious days, it's but normal we'd ask questions.

Valid questions, that matter.

It was necessary GOD made me born again, that I may know these answers to be true:

Is the Bible true?

Who wrote the Bible?

Why is the Bible so violent?

Satan: Who is he?

Why didn't God kill or destroy Satan?

Does God send hurricanes and earthquakes?

Is baptism necessary for salvation?

What are the requirements for baptism?

Did Jesus have any brothers, sisters or siblings?

Should Christians observe the Israelite festivals?

Can a deacon be divorced?

What does the Bible say about interracial marriage?

What does God say about people who use amulets?

What is the rapture?

What does the Bible say about Muslims / Islam?

Why are there so many denominations?

Which day is the Sabbath?

Who changed the Sabbath to Sunday?

Why do Christians worship on Sunday not Saturday?

Justification by faith: what does it mean?

What must I do to be saved?

What is the mercy seat?

When will the world end?

STRAIGHT talk on SIN

 

JESUS talks straight on sin:

John 8:24

King James Version

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.


JESUS is not a diplomat.

He is a revolutionary.

He doesn't sugar-coat things.

He delivers whatever the FATHER told Him.

He told things the way they are.

About sin, and the wrath of GOD.

About the consequences of unbelief, and disobedience.

He took on the humblest existence, that He may be with the people.

He knew what ailed us.

He reached out to as many as He could, in those three years of ministry.

He was not interested in living in palaces, or receiving accolade.

More often than not, He'd ask His disciples to "tell no man" of the miracles He performed.

He came to earth, for a mission:

Luke 19:10

King James Version

10 For the Son of man is come to seek 

and to save that which was lost.


He ministers to our souls.

1 Peter 2:25

King James Version

25 For ye were as sheep going astray; 

but are now returned unto the Shepherd 

and Bishop of your souls.


He did what GOD asked Him to do:

John 6:38-40

King James Version

38 For I came down from heaven, 

not to do mine own will, 

but the will of him that sent me.

39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, 

that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, 

but should raise it up again at the last day.

40 And this is the will of him that sent me, 

that every one which seeth the Son, 

and believeth on him, 

may have everlasting life: 

and I will raise him up at the last day.


He came to tell us of the RAPTURE:

Matthew 24:38-42

King James Version

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, 

and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.


He came to tell us of the Tribulation:

Matthew 24:21

King James Version

21 For then shall be great tribulation, 

such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, 

no, nor ever shall be.


He came to warn us:

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.


If you become part of the RAPTURE, you will be saved from the Tribulation.

You can only become part of the Rapture, if you are born again.

A believer in CHRIST JESUS.

John 3:3

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.


Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, 

and thy house.


In the deepest recesses of your heart, you know what sin is.

Turn away from that now.

The future of the wicked is this:

The wicked shall perish.

TURN back to GOD, who waits for you each day.

2 Chronicles 7:14

King James Version

14 If my people, 

which are called by my name, 

shall humble themselves, 

and pray, 

and seek my face, 

and turn from their wicked ways; 

then will I hear from heaven, 

and will forgive their sin, 

and will heal their land.


Heaven waits for your repentance.

Luke 15:7

King James Version

7 I say unto you, 

that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, 

more than over ninety and nine just persons, 

which need no repentance.


Trust not your own fallible wisdom.

Proverbs 3:7

King James Version

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: 

fear the Lord, 

and depart from evil.


REPENT of your sins and TURN to JESUS now.

GOD gave Him power over EVERYTHING.

Matthew 10:28

King James Version

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul: 

but rather fear him which is able 

to destroy both soul and body in hell.


It's time to turn away from sin.

FEAR the LORD, for He hates sin.

It has cost Him His beloved SON's life.

May we be all worth it.

Every day we're still on earth, is PURE GRACE.

GOD loves us all so much, He gave us all a FAIR chance at salvation.

Let us not stretch GOD's patience.

Believers feel it is getting thin, by now.

We must turn back to GOD now.

The enemy's SECRET enemy


 Psalm 8:2

King James Version

2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings 

hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, 

that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.


I'll let you in on a little secret.

Or maybe, it's a BIG secret, after all.

Satan hates babies.

Why else all the abortions?

Why else all the programming on media?

The enemy has declared war on children.

These little souls are the enemy's SECRET enemy.

Of course, he wouldn't want you to know that.

Soon as a child's given a mobile phone, he gets fascinated by all the moving pictures, and blaring sounds.

Parents have become unaware of all that programming.

They think it's educational.

Or, at least, they were made to think that.

Unruly kids are given cellphones to keep them occupied.

What we don't know is those tiny, impressionable brains are being bombarded with programming.

They are being prepped for more, as they grow older.

Try taking the phone out of a child's hand.

He'll bawl you out.

Perhaps, there's also enough radiation to fry our brains, and eyes.

From calls, to chats, and all that viewing, or listening.

You do know that you need headphones for listening.

But the headphones act as antennas, too.

Oh boy, more fried brains.

Imagine the soft brain tissue of a child being subjected to all that.

Or his tender eyes, still trying to focus.

I've seen mothers hooked on their phones, as they nurse their child.

Or they let the kids play with phones.

Of course, we don't really know the effect of all those radio waves and microwaves, and other invisible waves.

Or, do we?

Surely, the more invisible, the more lethal.

Everything's rigged to snuff the child's life.

Or to corrupt his pure way of thinking.

Everything's rigged to snuff the child spirit, from all of us adults.

We all have that child spirit in us.

It's that very spirit Satan tries to eliminate.

And he's got many devices.

Satan hates JESUS.

He hates everything JESUS loves.

JESUS loves children:

Matthew 18:3

King James Version

3 And said, 

Verily I say unto you, 

Except ye be converted, and become as little children, 

ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.


Matthew 18:4

King James Version

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, 

the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.


Matthew 18:5

King James Version

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name 

receiveth me.


Matthew 18:6

King James Version

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, 

it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, 

and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.


Matthew 18:7

King James Version

7 Woe unto the world because of offences! 

for it must needs be that offences come; 

but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!


Matthew 18:10

King James Version

10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; 

for I say unto you, 

That in heaven their angels do always behold 

the face of my Father which is in heaven.


Matthew 21:16

King James Version

16 And said unto him, 

Hearest thou what these say? 

And Jesus saith unto them, 

Yea; have ye never read, 

Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings 

thou hast perfected praise?


We adults are responsible for every child.

We're supposed to know better.

If we're born again, we'd understand this.

If we're born again, SPIRIT will teach us how to protect children.

Satan's war, is war on the innocent.

Babies, and young children, are totally dependent on us.

Let's give them a chance to thrive, under the protection of JESUS.

CALL upon JESUS.

Watch the demons scoot.

James 2:19

King James Version

19 Thou believest that there is one God; 

thou doest well: 

the devils also believe, 

and tremble.


James 4:7

King James Version

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 

Resist the devil, 

and he will flee from you.


Folks, it's a REAL war.

An invisible, spiritual war.

Protect your children -- THROUGH Jesus.
