Many christians claim that we can know nothing about the day that the bride will be fully removed from the planet—an event they erroneously call “THE rapture,” even though the rapture of the bride has been happening ever since Acts 2, because each time someone who has been given the covenant dies, that person is raptured into heaven. But, it’s simply untrue that we cannot know about the day on which those who are alive and remain on the earth will meet the Bridegroom in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
The reason christians think that nothing can be known about the specific day it will happen is because christianity stripped the true foundations of the faith away, which leaves christians without the keys the Father gave His children to understand the prophetic calendar, for the Father’s traditions are the means to understanding doctrine and prophecy.
When Messiah Yahoshua spoke “of that day or hour no man knows,” He was speaking of a specific day that the Jews called “the day or hour no man knows.” It is the next feast day on the prophetic calendar to be fulfilled, as Yahoshua fulfilled Passover, Unleavened Bread, and Firstfruits with His death, burial, and resurrection. And then, the Feast of Weeks was fulfilled by the giving of the Holy Spirit, whose seal is the New Covenant in the bride. That occurred 49 days after Yahoshua’s resurrection (Acts 2).
Paul spoke of the precise day when, in 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, he said it would happen at THE LAST TRUMP. The day that the Jews called “the day or hour no man knows,” they also called “the last trump.” And, they called it “the feast of the shout,” which we see referenced in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. They also called that day “the wedding of Messiah.” Now, how could there be a wedding without a bride?
What day is that speaking about? The Feast of Trumpets. And, John mentioned that trumpet in Revelation 4:1, when he saw the bride (24 elders) in heaven.
So, while it is true that one’s rapture can happen on any day (by a believer’s physical death), the last day of the spiritual barley harvest will occur on the Feast of Trumpets, and whoever of the bride remains on the earth on that day will be taken bodily to meet the Bridegroom in the air.
According to the six “days” of man’s dominion over the earth, and then the final “day” that Messiah will rule it (1000-year reign), the bride will be taken on the Feast of Trumpets (which occurs in the fall each year) sometime within the next few years.
There were two “days” (2000 years) from Adam to Abraham, and two “days” (2000 years) from Abraham to Messiah Yahoshua. Those were the “first days” of the week. What follows after that is what scripture calls “the last days.” They are the final three “days” of mankind’s time on this earth.
The “last days” began the year in which Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, and Weeks were fulfilled, which we believe was in 31 AD. Adding two “days” to that brings us to 2031, and that will be the end of the sixth day, which we know occurs on the Feast of Atonement at Armageddon. The seventh “day” will be Messiah Yahoshua’s 1000-year earthly reign from Jerusalem.
But, Messiah’s bride will be fully removed from the earth and taken to the wedding chamber ten years before that occurs (ten days from Trumpets to Atonement), so on the Feast of Trumpets sometime around the year 2021, Messiah’s bride will be fully removed from the earth to meet the Bridegroom in the air.
