Rosh Hashannah/Yom Teruah/Feast Of Trumpets 5780
Tishrei 1, September 29, the Feast of Trumpets, marks the beginning of the Jewish new year, 5780. Many believe that, some unknown year, the rapture will take place on Yom Teruah (Talmud, Rosh Hashannah 16b). Because the spring feasts fulfilled the first coming of Yeshua, it is expected that the fall feasts would be the time to fulfill the second coming. It is also considered to be Coronation Day for the King of the Universe, whom we know is Yeshua Ha Mashiach/Christ Jesus. It also marks the beginning of the Days of Awe, which are the last ten days of Teshuva/Repentance before Yom Kippur.
The Shofar Call of Messiah’s Return
Now we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who are asleep, so that you may not grieve like the rest who have no hope. For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, so with Him God will also bring those who have fallen asleep in Yeshua. For this we tell you, by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord shall in no way precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the blast of God’s shofar, and the dead in Messiah shall rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left behind, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air—and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words. ~1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Behold, I tell 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 shofar.
For the shofar will sound,
and the dead will be raised incorruptible,
and we will be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruptibility,
and this mortal must put on immortality.
But when this corruptible will have put on incorruptibility
and this mortal will have put on immortality,
then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.” ~1 Corinthians 15:51-54
