One Week Till Jesus Comes?

yom-teruah

That blog title is what is known as clickbait. However, I do have a point. The Fall Feasts of Yehovah start next Monday night on the Jewish calendar, although Biblically it could be the next day or so and not necessarily at sundown.

Confused? Because of several references to Jesus coming at the sounding of the trumpets, I believe it refers to that specific time on God’s calendar. The first Fall Feast is known as Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of trumpets). It is also Rosh Hashana, the new year, 5782.

When Jesus was talking to His disciples about His return, He made an intriguing statement.

“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” Matthew 24:36 NLT

Most interpret that verse as an absolute conclusion that there is no clue when He will come. However, the Jewish culture at the time of Jesus had a saying about Yom Teruah starting as “No man knows the day or hour.” That is because it starts Biblically at the actual physical sighting of the new moon from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. If it was cloudy you might not see it till midnight or later, or may not until the next night. Thus the saying.

Now, I am not stating a doctrine, just a little food for thought. So, what if Jesus used that common Jewish phrase as a hint, a clue, that He would return during the sounding of the trumpets on Yom Teruah? Even Jesus did not know at that time what the weather would be at His return, but we can know the season.

“…in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:52

I could be wrong, and we should be ready to meet him every day. But, I must say it is just a little more exciting at this time of year. And wouldn’t this be a great year for Him to come? Next week?!

This year also happens to be a Shmita year; when observant Israelis leave their fields fallow (one year every seven) to allow the land to rest and restore its nutrients for better crops the other six years. Some even believe it is a Jubilee year, (although it seems like somebody says that every year).

With all the shaking in the whole earth, wouldn’t this be a good time? Are you ready to meet Him? If it is not, then we we will carry on with His business until He comes.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and rain for Israel.
