There are many who purport to know how the “end times” will play out; some think there will be no rapture of the bride, because the ENGLISH word “rapture” is not found in their ENGLISH translation of the scriptures. And, some think the rapture of the bride will happen at the end of the tribulation, and some think it will be in the midst of it.
Here’s the brutal TRUTH about such folks: if one does not thoroughly know and understand the Father’s traditions, such as the three spiritual harvests and the feast days, then one has ZERO BUSINESS claiming to have any knowledge of what is going to happen when. Yah’s calendar is presented in His traditions. If you don’t know them, you don’t know His plans.
The spiritual barley harvest began with the fulfilling of the Feast of Firstfruits, which is the first day of the barley harvest. The fulfillment was Messiah’s resurrection, and the resurrection of the Old Testament saints, who were the Firstfruits wave offering of the barley harvest performed before the Father by the new Great High Priest Yahoshua the Messiah.
We are still in the barley harvest—it is the period called “the counting of the omer” (barley is a symbol of the bride). On the final day of the barley harvest, what remains of the barley (bride) will be gathered all together at once, and the next day will begin the wheat harvest (the wheat harvest CANNOT begin until the barley harvest is complete).
The spiritual barley harvest will end on the Feast of Trumpets, which was called “the day or hour no man knows” (Matthew 24:36), “the last trump” (1 Corinthians 15:52), “the feast of the shout” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17), and “the wedding of the Messiah” (how can there be a wedding without a bride?).
Immediately after the barley harvest, the wheat harvest will begin. The wheat (tribulation saints) will be harvested mostly by beheading, and it will be during the ten years between the bride’s being taken to the wedding chamber and the end of the tribulation at Armageddon (ten days from Trumpets to Atonement).
The wheat harvest will end shortly before Armageddon, which will then begin the grape harvest, with the fulfillment of the Feast of Atonement being the winepress of the grape harvest, and then Messiah’s separating the sheep from the goats.
The sheep will enter the millennial reign for the earthly fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles, which will include the dedication of Messiah’s millennial temple. The end of the millennial reign will bring the eighth day of Tabernacles, which is the “new beginning,” and eternity in the new heaven and earth will begin.
Apart from these traditions, nobody has authority to declare what will happen during the prophetic events that are upon us now (it was announced in September 2017 with the Revelation 12:1-2 sign in the sky—the same sign that announced Messiah’s first coming—that these events are imminent).
The next prophetic event to occur on Yah’s calendar will be the fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets (which begins the Fall feasts–also called the “judgment feasts”). Those who believe they will be here during the tribulation probably will be; the bride, however, will be in the wedding chamber during that time.
Would it not behoove you to make certain you have the necessary oil in your lamp for the fulfillment of that feast? It will likely occur within the next few years, as the six days of man’s earthly rule are quickly coming to an end.
