6. Day That No One Knows
The Feast of Trumpets can occur after the 29th or 30th day of Elul, so no one knows the day or hour until the crescent moon appears in the afternoon sky. Jesus uses a Jewish figure of speech to tell us the day of the Rapture is the Feast of Trumpets.
But of that day and hour knows no man (Matthew 24:36).
7. Day That Is Hidden
The Rapture is Yom Hakeseh or the Hidden Day. The day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. No one saw Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead so we will be resurrected and raptured in hiding.
Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast (Isaiah 26:19-20, 21).
On September 16, 2023, there is an occultation as the Moon covers Mars. The astronomical event is hidden from view since the brightnesss of the Sun outshines the crescent Moon and Mars blends into the sunrise and sunset.
8. Day of the Marriage Feast of the Lamb
The Feast of Trumpets is the traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. Both Jacob and Samson's weddings last one week (Genesis 29:26-28
, Judges 14:12
). Christ and His Church's ceremony lasts seven years.
In my Father's house are many [rooms]: 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 you may be also (John 14:2-3
God tells us what is going to happen before it happens and when. He describes the Rapture by Jewish traditions on the Feast of Trumpets, the Jewish New Year. Since God revealed to us the days of the Rapture but not the year, Daniel's dream
, four horses
, five trumpets
and other prophesies describe important events that occur before the Tribulation.
