Rapture, Tribulation & Second Coming
July 2019
Atonement - Second Coming - 10th of Tishri - Leviticus 23:34-35

Jesus Christ returns to earth with the Saints. Israel repents and is restored (Zechariah 12:10). Then Jesus Christ defeats His foes and begins His one thousand year reign on earth.

I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he does judge and make war. And he has on his robe and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS (Revelation 19:11, 16).

- Millennial Reign - 15th-21st of Tishri - Leviticus 23:34-35

After the Tribulation, Jesus Christ will reign over all the people of earth for one thousand years. The earth is restored, sin restrained and true peace exists on earth. This is called the Day of the Lord.

They [martyred saints] lives and reigned with Christ a thousand years (Revelation 20:4).

The book of Revelation is not sequential but a spiral of parallel events that have shorter and shorter time spans until the return of Jesus Christ. The Church Age began at Pentecost and ends at the Rapture. The seals began at the merger of Church and Roman State. The trumpets began with World War I. The Tribulation begins with a seven year covenant. The seals, trumpets and Tribulation end at the Second Coming. Since we are about one hundred years into the Laodicean period, there are four horses on the run and five trumpets sounding before the Tribulation. The beginnings of three world wars are falling into place. We are so far into the End Times that we see Revelation being fulfilled.

Tishri - The Beginning & the End

21st Century Revelation's premise is that we are living in the End Times right before the Rapture. We see four horses on the run and hear five trumpets sounding during the Church Age. As the spring feasts predict redemption, the fall feasts predict return with key events of the Rapture, Tribulation and Second Coming.

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 is past. For, behold, the Lord comes out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain (Isaiah 26:19-20, 21).
Tribulation Timeline
Trumpets - Rapture - 1st-2nd of Tishri - Leviticus 23:23-25

The Church Age starts at Pentecost and ends at the Rapture. Many scholars put the Rapture at Revelation 4:1-2. However, John was called up to heaven in a vision not the Church. Revelation 12:5-6 tells the story of a woman, child and dragon. Mary gave birth to Jesus and fled with Joseph into the wilderness. Israel gave birth to Jesus and the Church which are "caught up" before she flees into the wilderness. Revelation is not sequential but a spiral of events that ends with the reigns of Jesus Christ.

Although we all go through tribulation (John 16:33), God protects His people from the seven years of Tribulation (Revelation 3:10). At the sound of the trumpet, Jesus Christ calls His children home. The dead in Christ are resurrected to life and all believers meet Jesus Christ in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17). The Rapture occurs on the 1st of Tishri, Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets in September-October. Paul used a Hebrew figure of speech "Last Trump" to refer to Trumpets. The hundredth blast of the shofar is called Tekiah Gedolah or Last Trump (1 Corinthians 15:51-52).

The Rapture is Yom Hakeseh or the Hidden Day. No one knew when the new year began until they saw the crescent new moon. No one saw Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead so we will be resurrected and raptured in hiding. When? God gave us the answer in the first verse of the Bible. On the Jewish Calendar, Tishri is the beginning and the end.

On Alpha b'Tishri, God created the heavens and earth (Genesis 1:1).
End Times: Church Age, Tribulation & Millennium
Tribulation - 3rd-9th of Tishri - Daniel 9:27

The Tribulation is seven years (Daniel 9:27) described as a bitter scroll (Revelation 10:10). God restores Israel but pours out wrath on those who reject His mercy and grace and rebel against His sovereignty over the world (Matthew 24:21). The Antichrist confirms the Israel-Palestine peace treaty that takes Judea and Samaria (West Bank of Jordan) from Israel. The covenant begins and causes the Tribulation. The days from Trumpets and Atonement are Yamin Noraim, the Days of Awe.

Israel has peace and builds the Jewish temple while ten kings (European Union) rule during the first half of the Tribulation (Revelation 17:12-13). See Daniel's Dream. The second half of the Tribulation is the Great Tribulation or "Jacob's trouble" (Jeremiah 30:7). Antichrist sits in the temple and claims to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). The Antichrist rules the Beast (world government), the False Prophet rules the second beast (world religion) and they control everything through the world economy.

During the Tribulation, God uses three End Wars to overthrow all nations and prepare for the millennial reign of Jesus Christ. Once four horses and five trumpet judgments are moved into the Church Age, three world wars occur. The Tribulation ends after armies of the nations gathering at Armageddon then attack Israel.
