Could the Rapture happen in 2011? It's possible, considering the Rapture is imminent.
I've been talking about signs on earth, the unrest, the earthquakes in various places, the crazy weather. These might be explained away. Even the sun cycle and the supermoon can be explained away.
But could I postulate a 2011 Rapture/Trib using ONLY celestial signs and Jewish feasts?
I've brought to light the fact that Christ is fulfilling the Jewish feasts. The death of the Lamb of God (Passover), burial (Unleavened Bread), resurrection (First Fruits), Holy Spirit descends (Pentacost). What's left? Feast of Trumpets (many believe is the Rapture), Feast of Atonement (Second Coming & redemption of the Jews), Feast of Tabernacles (living forever with the Lord.)
As you learned from the videos I posted by Perry Stone, the Feast of Trumpets was the one feast governed by the new moon, and as such, no one knew the hour or the day of the start of the feast. They needed to have witnesses to watch the moon and blow the shofar the moment that sliver of the moon lit.
The fact the Apostle Paul mentions "at the last trump" for when we'll be caught up in the air to Jesus suggests there will be many "trump" blasts before the final one. Priests blow the shofar 100 times on the Feast of Trumpets. Many people believe we will be Raptured at the final trumpet of the Trib plagues, but I do not believe that is so.
When is the Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh Hoshanah, of 2011? Sept. 29/30. It's a two day feast because, as I said, "No one knows the hour or the day" of the feast. Now we can calculate the sliver of the new moon, but the significance remains the same. There is a verse in Revelation about the virgin and the beast.
1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.
A YouTuber found a celestial sign in the heavens that coincidentally fits this verse in the Bible. I happened to notice the date of the future event. September 29, 2011. Rosh Hoshanah.
Now, what does Rev. 12, verse 3-4 say again?
3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth.
Amazingly, Earth will have a spectacular meteor shower on October 8th, the Draconids. And what just "happens" to fall on October 8th, 2011? The Feast of Atonement.
Couple these amazing celestial events with the lunar tetrad in 2014-2015, that bookends Passover and Tabernacles each year, and you have the possible marker for the Abomination of Desolation. Remember, there will also be a total solar eclipse on March 20th, 2015, the first day of the Jewish new year. IF the Antichrist violates the yet-to-be-built Jewish Temple on Passover 2015 (3 1/2 years from fall of 2011, the exact mid-point of the Trib), then there would be a solar eclipse (sun as sackcloth) and a blood moon (moon as blood) before the great and terrible Day of the Lord (the last 3 1/2 years of the Trib.)
HOWEVER, and this is a big thing, that means the Jews would most likely need to begin building their Temple probably in the fall of 2011 as well. Why? It's easy to throw up a building, but the Jews would need approximately 42 months to complete the ceremonies they would need to sanctify and dedicate the Temple to God.
We know from The Temple Institute they have everything in place, already made and waiting for the Temple. We also know that a kosher red heifer, the one animal that can purify the Temple, has been born after almost 2000 years. A sign from God He wants His Temple built?
But obviously building their 3rd Temple is a sticky situation. The Muslims won't allow the Jews to build on the Temple Mount. However, many believe this is the purpose of the two witnesses of Revelation. Here is some video of Perry Stone explaining the purpose behind the two witnesses aside from preaching the Word of God in Jerusalem. The fourth and final video completes the teaching after about one minute in.
Pastor Stone believes if it takes 42 months to build the Temple, then RIGHT BEFORE the Jews can have their first sacrifice in almost 2000 years on Passover 2015 (the very day of one of the lunar tetrads, btw), the Antichrist swoops in, kills the witnesses, reclaims the Temple Mount, and defiles the brand new Temple with the Abomination of Desolation, most likely a pig sacrifice and a statue of himself in the Holy of Holies (as Antiochus Epiphanes once did, another AC figure.) It's a good hypothesis.
THIS will be the defining event that will tell the Jews once and for all this man is bad news and they will flee from Jerusalem (hence the desolation).
But do you see how it all seems to "make sense" when you look at the celestial signs alone? And I didn't even TOUCH on "nation against nation, earthquakes in diverse places, etc." Or the fact the world is pushing Israel for peace with Palestine and divide their holy city.
Oh, and when is THAT supposed to take place, by the way? September 2011.
I don't know if this year's Rosh Hoshanah is the Rapture of the Church. No man knows the day nor the hour, but we CAN know the season, so this day does not overtake US like a thief in the night... (1 Thessalonians 5:4) The Lord doesn't have to Rapture the Church on the Feast of Trumpets. It can happen any time, so be ready.
But 2011, more than any other year before it, with the signs on Earth AND the signs in the heavens, seems to be the most promising year we've ever had in looking forward to His Coming.
