JEWISH FESTIVALS-A SHADOW OF CHRIST-PART 2

Before coming to the second group of Jewish festivals signifying those events in Christian history, which are yet to occur it is pertinent to ponder…if paramount events in Christian history, such as crucifixion of Christ, pouring of the Holy Spirit on the disciples took place EXACTLY on the day of relevant Jewish festivals, will not other important future events related to Christianity take place on the days of other relevant Jewish festivals? The answer is yes. Period!

v) PROMOTION

5.FEAST OF TRUMPETS in Hebrew Language :Rosh Hashanah Leviticus 23:23-24/Numbers 29:1-6

ACTION: Display of pictures of

a) Shofar being blown/Yours truly also blows the same (especially brought from the Holy Land) in front of the congregation..ha..ha..

b) Archangel blowing the trumpet at the zero hour

c) Rapture of Christians

The Jews are summoned from the fields of work by the trumpet blast during this Festival which comes at crop harvest time after the autumn rains. Based on sighting of full moon, this festival is celebrated over a period of 2 days.

Jewish reason for celebrating

To commemorate the Creation of Adam. Chronologically, this festival, ought to have been THE FIRST, going by the historical order of events. BUT CLEARLY WE SEE, DIVINE PROVIDENCE IN PLACING THIS FESTIVAL, AT THE FIFTH SPOT, because it has to serve the purpose of highlighting , yet another landmark event in the order it would occur in CHRISTIAN HISTORY-RAPTURE!!!

Christian significance

Called from “fields of work”, by the trumpet blast of the Arch-angel (I Cor 15:51-53/I Thess 4:15-18), at this stage, there would be a New RECREATION of believers bodies’ into eternal, raptured, glorified state like the one Adam possessed BEFORE the Fall. This would also signal, the beginning of 7-year tribulation in the World minus the Church. Sadly, those Jews who have not placed their faith in Jesus Christ would be left behind to face the tribulation.

ACTION: Display of a picture of a confused man with a question mark over his head

If momentous events in Christian history, such as crucifixion of Christ, coming of the Holy Spirit on the disciples took place exactly on the day of relevant Jewish festivals, will the rapture take place on the day of yet another Jewish festival-the festival of trumpets? The answer is yes. But wait a minute doesn’t the Bible say that no one knows the date of rapture (Matt 24:36)? Yes! While, I am affirming that the rapture would certainly take place on the day of the Festival of Trumpets in the coming years, please note that I am NOT SPECIFYING THE EXACT year!!!

VI) TRANSFORMATION

6.DAY OF ATONEMENT: IN HEBREW LANGUAGE CALLED-YOM KIPPUR- LEVITICUS 16/23:26-27/NUMBERS 29:7-Seven days after the Feast of Trumpets
