The Sound Of The Shofar Blowing In Jerusalem For Rosh Hashana Marks The Start Of The Most Prophetic Month In Bible Prophecy

The Feast of Tabernacles which falls right on September 23rd, is perhaps the most important of all the feast days, and it is the main one connected with the first and second advents of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ

The Feast of Tabernacles which falls right on September 23rd, is perhaps the most important of all the feast days in this month, and it is the main one connected with the first and second advents of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ

September is a very special month both in Israel and in the lives of the Jewish people. In it we have the Feast of Trumpets, commonly celebrated as the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashana, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles, or Succoth. Today marks the beginning of the first one, the Feast of Trumpets.

“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. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.” Leviticus 23:24,25 (KJV)

In the days leading up to Rosh Hashana this year, Jews gathered in Jerusalem from all over the world to say selichot prayers, or prayers of forgiveness to God and ask for His mercy as the Jewish people enter into their season of repentance. On September 18th they will celebrate Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, and on the 23rd they will celebrate the Feast Of Tabernacles. These three events together are what the Jews call their ‘High Holy Days’, and as you will see, for a very good reason.

The Feast of Tabernacles not only coincides with the day where Jesus began His earthly ministry, it is also a feast day that will be commanded to be celebrated throughout the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ as well. And if any person or nation won’t observe the Feast of Tabernacles, their is a punishment associated with do that. What is it that is so important about the Feast of Tabernacles? Let’s take a listen to what the prophet Zechariah has to say about it.

“And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.” Zechariah 14:16-19 (KJV)

In our calendar, September is the ninth month, but not so in the Jewish calendar

The Jewish calendar is different from ours, but the clues are right in the names of the months themselves. In our calendar, September is the ninth month, but the word “sept” means 7. We call October the tenth month, but “oct” means 8. November for us is 11, but “nov” means 9. December is 12 for us, but “dec” means 10. The seventh month for the Jewish people is one of the most important on their calendar, if not the most important out of all of them.

Even though our calendars are different, God still works it out so our ninth month is the Jews seventh month, and it’s even right there in the name of the thing. How amazing is that?

The Feast of Tabernacles which falls right on September 23rd, is perhaps the most important of all the feast days in this month, and it is the main one connected with the first and second advents of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ. Contrary to Roman Catholic myth, Jesus was not born anytime in December and certainly not on the 25th. December 25th was the pagan Roman celebration known as Saturnalia, and has nothing to do with Jesus Christ or the Bible.

Jesus Christ appeared to the world at His birth in the end of September, on or near the 23rd, on the Feast of Tabernacles. When He was transfigured in glory and has Moses and Elijah appear with him as a witness to the disciples who were gathered there, what very telling word does Peter blurt out? See for yourself.

And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them. And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus. And Peter answered and said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. For he wist not what to say; for they were sore afraid.” Mark 9:2-6 (KJV)

Peter said let’s make some TABERNACLES! Why do you think he said that? The gospels said he had no idea what he was really saying, and in fact, Peter was prophesying. What will be the main feast day for a thousand years in the Millennium? Zechariah has already shown us that it will be the Feast of Tabernacles.

Interestingly, the passage has the events of the Mount of Transfiguration taking place “after 6 days”, have you ever noticed that when you read it? Matthew’s gospel backs up Mark’s and again mentions that Jesus appears in His glory after “6 days”.

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.” Matthew 17:1-4 (KJV)

What’s the importance of “after 6 days”? How about 6,000 years of human history, the Rapture of the Church, the time of Jacob’s trouble and then the Second Coming which sets up the thousand year reign of King Jesus in the 7,000th year of human history? Matthew has a huge prophecy time clue  on display for all the world to see, and yet somehow the vast majority of the bible “scholars” seem to miss it every time.

If I had to pick a date for the return of Jesus Christ at the Second Coming, care to guess what it would be? Yep, I would pick the Feast of Tabernacles at the end of the 7th month. So we can clearly see how the 3 major feasts days for the Jewish people which happen in the seventh month are connected with the first and second advents of the Messiah, as well as the Thousand Year Reign. The main thread that runs through all of them is the Feast of Tabernacles.

Lastly, in case you think we are overstating the importance of the Feast of Tabernacles and the word “tabernacles” itself in connection with Jesus, then take a look at this very important verse from John’s gospel about that.

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 (KJV)

The word “dwelt” in the passage comes from the Greek word σκηνόω, transliterated as “skēnoō” and what does that word mean? Oh, I think you already know the answer to that one, but here it is anyway.

σκηνόω skēnóō: “to fix one’s tabernacle, have one’s tabernacle, abide (or live) in a tabernacle (or tent), tabernacle, to dwell” source

Jesus appeared the first time and “dwelt among” His people for 33 years, He will return at the Second Coming to again “dwell among” His people this time for a thousand years. And every year for a thousand years the main feast that He will order to be celebrated will be the Feast of Tabernacles.

For this and for all the reasons previously stated in this article, we are able connect Jesus’ first coming, His second coming and the entire Millennial Reign with the Feast of Tabernacles. Now what about the Church?

Prophetic events connected with the Church take place in the springtime.

“My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” Song Of Solomon 2:10-13 (KJV)

The Church of Jesus Christ is taken off the Earth before the time of Jacob’s trouble for a whole variety of reasons, but mostly because it’s JACOB’S TROUBLE, which has nothing to do with the Church. Replacement theologists, who are always stealing Israel’s blessings, also try stealing their curses by putting the Church in the Tribulation but that will not work.

Many prophecy “experts” mistakenly try and put the Rapture of the Church in the Fall at the Feast of Trumpets, but that will not work. The Church is connected to the Feast of Firstfruits which takes place at the time of year when Spring is melding into Summer. Remember, the Rapture of the Church kicks off with a VOICE “as of a trumpet”, not an actual trumpet itself. The blowing of actual trumpets, as in the Feast of Trumpets, is connected to Israel.

“After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.” Revelation 4:1 (KJV)

 I will bless them that bless thee

So pray for the Jewish people during these incredibly important Biblical feast days, for they herald world-changing events that have already taken place and that will take place soon in the days after of the Rapture of the Church. Genesis 12:3 is still in full effect.

“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3 (KJV)

Now you know a little more about how end times prophecy connects with events taking place in Israel right now.

When Was The Last Time You Can Recall There Being So Many Powerful And Prominent Princes On The World Stage At The Same Time?

Published

on

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

For some strange reason, we have a plethora of very powerful princes all on the world stage at the same time, who all seem to be working towards the same goal. Could one of them be the ‘prince of the covenant’?

In the book of Daniel, talking about the soon-coming end times, we read about the Antichrist, the covenant and the prince of the covenant that form the mainframe of the time of Jacob’s trouble. Paul says that the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church will take place when the man of sin is revealed, so we have that. We have the Abraham Accords, which in my opinion is either the covenant from 9:27 or will lead directly to that covenant, so we have that. Then we have the ‘mystery man’ the Bible calls the prince of the covenant. In an amazing coincidence, we have an abundance of rich, powerful princes on the world stage right now. Go figure. No, really, let’s go figure this out.

“And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant. And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.” Daniel 11:22,23 (KJB)

I’m sure it’s just a coincidence, but the Abraham Accords is the most transformative agreement between nations as related to Israel, and it was created in large part by Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed from the United Arab Emirates, who many call the most powerful man in the Middle East. Then we have Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from Saudi Arabia, who is very vocal about ‘peace in the Middle East’ between Israel and the Palestinians. Bringing up the rear, we have Prince Charles who any day now is about to assume the throne of England as its king. Fun fact, Prince Charles is on record calling for trillions of dollars and full military power be given to an unnamed person who needs to have those things to save the world. Whew, that’s a lot of princes, a lot of power, and it all swirls around a lot of Bible prophecy.

“Here we need a vast military style campaign to marsh the strength of the global private sector, with trillions at his disposal far beyond global GDP, and with the greatest respect, beyond even the governments of the world’s leaders.” – Prince Charles, COP26

The Bible does not say who the prince of the covenant is, but we know this much. He starts out in a league with the Antichrist, and then at some point after he outlives his usefulness, is ‘broken’  by the Antichrist along with the covenant. All 3 of the princes in this article are in favor of the Great Reset, in favor of supporting Climate Change, and are in favor of creating peace between Israel and the Palestinians by dividing the land of Israel. My point is simply this, the Abraham Accords was the game changer in the Middle East, and that would not be possible without the help of Prince Mohamed bin Zayed. The same man is also the ‘point man’ for the Vatican in getting Islamic leaders to sign off on the Declaration of Human Fraternity, itself a covenant that’s simply pregnant with end times possibilities. Everywhere you look since 2020, a prince has been popping up and helping to advance the end times timeline. And one of these princes stands out noticeably from the other two.

My own personal guess for which of these men would make a good ‘prince of the covenant’ would be, hands down, Mohamed bin Zayed, no question about it. Due to his involvement in both the Abraham Accords and with Chrislam, he is already more than halfway there. Now, if we could only find a connection between Mohamed bin Zayed and Emmanuel Macron, we would really have something to talk about. Oh, silly me, we already do and here it is.

Here are some articles that will greatly expand on what I am saying, and we highly recommend you read them, and compare what you read to what is in your King James Bible.

Jesus Of Nazareth For The Past Two Thousand Years Has Been Building A City Called New Jerusalem That Will Be The Forever Home Of The Born Again Believer

The Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the New Jerusalem where God will once again and for all eternity “dwell with man”. God’s glory will be forever made manifest in the thing for which He shed His own blood – the Church of Jesus Christ.

Those John:14 mansions that Jesus the Carpenter of Nazareth has been building for the last 2,000 years is New Jerusalem, that holy city that comes down from God out of Heaven

Have you ever watched any of those pet shows on channels like The Dodo where they talk about people adopting pets and bringing them to their new ‘forever home’? Your King James Bible talks about that as well, only it’s you who gets adopted, and your forever Home is a place called the New Jerusalem. New Jerusalem is the mansions from John 14, that Jesus the carpenter of Nazareth, has been building for us for the past two thousand years. Born again believers in the Church Age are placed into the Body of Christ and we are the Bride of Christ.

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:1-3 (KJB)

“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2 (KJB)

The forever Home of the Christian, Jew or Gentile, will be not Heaven but New Jerusalem, which comes down from God out of Heaven, it’s not in Heaven, and it will be the dwelling place for the Lamb’s wife, which is the redeemed Church. Please note the following about the Lamb’s wife:

  • She is engaged to the Lord Jesus Christ: “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.” 2 Corinthians 11:2 (KJB). In the context of this passage, to whom is Paul speaking? He is speaking to the Church at Corinth that is made up of born again Christians.
  • She makes herself ready for marriage: “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.” Revelation 19:7 (KJB). Here we see the Body of Christ, the Church, having now gone through the Judgement Seat of Christ, all set and ready to be forever joined to her Beloved, the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • She is now taken to her forever Home: “And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” Revelation 21:9 (KJB). So why is New Jerusalem referred to as a bride? Because that beautiful City is filled to overflowing with a blood-bought Bride, that’s why. The City is not the Bride, it houses the Bride.

Our apostle Paul tells us in Galatians 3:29 that if we are saved we are counted with faithful Abraham, who was not a Jew, and faithful Abraham did some things that all Christians ought to be doing. First, Hebrews 11:8 shows us that when God called him, Abraham followed not knowing exactly where God was leading him. That’s how all Christians should follow after God. Secondly, after Abraham got to following God, he lost his love for the things of this world, and started looking for an heavenly city, whose “builder and maker was God” in Hebrews 11:10. Where is that City? It is New Jerusalem, of course.

The Church is the body of Christ, the bride of Christ, and the New Jerusalem where God will once again and for all eternity “dwell with man”. God’s glory will be forever made manifest in the thing for which He shed His own blood – the Church of Jesus Christ. When a man falls in love, he becomes engaged, gets married, and then takes her to live with him in her new home. This three-step process is clearly seen in scripture in relation to Jesus and His Bride, which is the Church.

“Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:” Colossians 1:24 (KJB)

What Is More Important To You Than The Book, The Blood And The Soon-Coming Blessed Hope Of Flight #777 On Titus213 Airlines?

My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is? This is why we place such importance on having the right Bible, things that are different are not the same, and where the word of a King is, there is power.

My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is?

I do some of my best thinking while driving, and yesterday I had about 18 hours of “thinking time” whilst driving all the way from Florida up to North Jersey, where I was born and raised. While driving, I started thinking about all the times in the 31 years since I got saved, that the Lord got me through, made a way when there was no way, and did things for me that I was in no wise worthy to receive. I thought about where my walk with the Lord started, and it started with that Book.

“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” Psalm 138:2 (KJB)

How well I still remember that night on March 14th, 1991, when I opened that King James Bible for the the very first time, and I read what Jesus did for me on the cross. God loved me so much, that He died in my place on the cross. Jesus took on Himself the punishment that I so rightly deserved. All I had to do to be saved was make that Heavenly transaction, my sins for His righteousness. Alone in my room, with no Christian friends, never having been to a Christian church (I was a Catholic), I bowed my head, got on my knees and asked God to save me. My entrance into the kingdom of God didn’t start with the shed blood of Jesus Christ, it started with a Book telling me about the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Now do you see how important that Book is?

This is why we place such importance on having the right Bible, things that are different are not the same, and where the word of a King is, there is power. This is why we put such emphasis on our Free Bible and Gospel Tract Program, what is more important than putting God’s preserved word in the hands of people who want it but can’t afford it?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 (KJB)

As I drove all day and all night yesterday, I thought about the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ, how amazingly easy it is to get saved. The Bible tells you that you owe a debt that you cannot pay, and that Jesus paid a debt that He did not owe. Take that free payment and live for life everlasting, reject that payment and you pay for your sins for eternity in the Lake of Fire. What is more simple than that? You don’t wind up in Hell for any sin you commit, you wind up in Hell because you rejected the payment for the sin you commit. Want to go to Heaven? Trust Jesus Christ. Want to go to Hell? Trust anything else, and you’ll get there.

I love our twice-weekly King James Bible studies, and I love it when the Lord takes us deep and shows us some stuff, but let me tell you something. Sometimes it’s really good to pull off the to side and just do a little private shouting to the Lord for His mercy, grace and goodness in letting you get saved. Understanding the deep things of Bible prophecy is great, but so is remembering His great love for you on the cross, and the job He left you here to do!

Only ONE life, ’twill SOON be past, and ONLY what’s done for JESUS CHRIST will last!
