Passover Fulfilled by the Cross April 2020
Each spring, we celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. By faith in His sacrifice, we are forgiven of our sin and receive the free gift of salvation. These holy days are floating holidays on the Roman calendar that link to the Passover full moon on the Jewish calendar. When we talk about prophecy, we say we do not know the time. However before the world was created, our sovereign God had a specific plan with a specific time. God revealed that plan though His Word. See Passover.
In Daniel 2, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream. While Daniel used prophecy to glorify God, Nebuchadnezzar used prophecy for pride. He had an image made and invited all government officials to the dedication so they could worship the image of the king. See Daniel.

While enjoying the party, he called for the gold and silver goblets that King Nebuchadnezzar took from the Jewish temple. That night, they drank from the goblets and praised the gods of the Babylonians. But God had other plans to remove a king and his kingdom and set up a different king and kingdom. See Daniel.
The Feast of Trumpets: Rapture Day August/September 2021
Jewish tradition says a new month begins after two witnesses see the crescent new moon, testify before the Sanhedrin who declare the beginning of the new month. This happens about a day after the astronomical new moon. But Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of a new month and new civil year. The shofar sounds one hundred times during the Jewish service. Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets is the Rapture day. See Trumpets.

Darius (or Gobyras) was the Persian general that conquered and governed the Babylonian territory under King Cyrus. He assigned three leaders to oversee a hundred twenty rulers. Despite being a leader in the Babylonian empire, Daniel was chosen first leader because of his excellent spirit. God was still using Daniel to protect the Jews in captivity. See Daniel.
