This follows the tradition of Roshashanan the head of the year and apoximately the next year of Jubalee according to the the Hebrew calendar
Since the day and hour cannot be set till the siting of the new moon over Jeruselem, we cannot know. Those who have studied scripture will be ready.
Probably I'l have dressed for the occation and be washed if at all possible. (if I make it that long)
Rosh Hashannah is actually a BAbylonian festival. it is the beginning of the BAbylonian year. the jews did tie that into the feast of trumpets but according to the calendar you are using for this post, every month, you have no idea when it will begin becasue each month would require the siteing of the new moon....
The reason also as to why hte messianics and christians in the evangelical camp say the feast of trumpets is that they believe that t only the feasts that occur in teh first half of the year were fulfilled and the fall feasts will be fulfille d in the future, since the feast of trumpets is the next one, then it must be it.
The problem with this view is that the feast itself must have some REAL tie in to the actual occurance.. in other words, the feast itself has to represent, in type or allogically, what occurs in it's fulfillment by Christ....
Well, what was the feat of trumpets biblically? A trumpet would sound, right? For how many days?
you got it.. 7 days....
There was also what was understood by the jews as the ten days of awe... The feast of trumpets was a WARNING, "sound the alarm".
But for whom?
For the jews!
Why? Because it meant impending judgement wsa to come.
And who would receive this judgement?
This judgement was received by those who had not had their sins covered by the blood of the lamb. But when would this judgement occur? at he beginning of this feast?
NO and yet pretribbers use this feast as the day of some future rapture and 7 years of trbulation to occur to follow the 7 trumpet blasts and during this time, judgement.!
That breaks the typology and pattern of this feast on so many levels, it is obvious, the ministers who teacht aht stuff have NO understanding of the bible patterns.
the jews , in the OLD TESTAMENT, would go during this time, during these ten days, to the grace sites of their deceased... What would they do?
They would pray for their deceased, that God would have mercy on them, NOT UNLIKE Judas MAcabees did during the time of Aniochus Ephihanes... (yet, many protestants will teach God raised a man up to restore the temple but somehow, this man was a heretic at the same timeby his actions, they accept hanuchah, Chrsit patterned himself during the feast of hanuchah after Judahs MAcabees but MAcabees was a heretic according to some) Besides praying for their deseased, they would ALSO ASK FOR PRAYER , interceeding for them! This was part of JUDAISM! (yet, some will say the Roman CAtholic church came up with praying to saints as if we came up with it in thin air, we have Macabees as a good example of one who did what we also do today).
The jews would also, during this time, go and make reparation for sin by goign to those they opffended AND go to the temple and offer sacrifice so their sins would be covered....
Why? Because the day of atonemnt, Yom Kipuur was coming....
And waht was Yom Kippur? the day of atonement......
On that day, the high priest would enter the temple, and have it cleansed. Cleansed of what" BLOOD. it wsa , in one manner of speaking, spring cleaning. The temple had become defiled and requiring cleansing after a full year of blood sacrifice.
I am not going to go intot he full ritual but to say that a few doves were used, (we see the vestiture of Christs garment dipped in blood when he comes at armegeddon, don't we, he is fulfilling a type pattern of the dove here), but there was the taking of the sins that had been transfered tot he altar by the blood, now transfered to the goat for azazel. This goat would be led into the wilderness to die for the sins accumulated. When Christ died for our sins, fulfilling passover, the lamb's blood TRANSFERED the sin from your head to it's head and it's blood was taken and placed on the horns of the altar. Thsi is waht is termed covered for sin. It was only a covering. This is what Chrsit's blood did.. transfer from yoru head to his, your sin. On the day of atonement, the high priests takes that same sin that wsa covered by the blood and transfered this sin to the head of the goat for azazel and this goat would die i the silerness.
When the high priest would emerge from the temple and proclaimed that all the sins had been forgiven and transfered, whose soins was he speaking of? ONLY THOSE SINS THAT HAD ALREADY been offered up in sacrifice at the temple the year before. The ten days of awe, the trumpet blasts, teh sounding the alarm wsa to awaken the jews to the fact the the judgement for sin wsa coming . If their sin was not trasnfered tot he temple altar by the time the day of atonement came, then once the goat for azel wsa sent out with those sins, it was TOO LATE to offer sacrifice, yoru sin would not have to be paid for by you and you alone!
So, Chrsit sits, offering his blood today, today is the day of atonement. The day yoru sins are no longer received for forgiveness is the day satan is thrown in the bottomless pit becasue it is that day, he receives his just reward for the corruption he was responsilbe for. Those people who have not repented would then be judged for the sins they still carried, instead of having them covered, then trasfered to satan in teh end.
THOSE ARE THE TYPES and PATTERNS.
So, Chrsit does not leave the heavenly temple til when? Til evangelization has fulfiled it's purpose... Til that time, people continue to be saved, continue to repent. When people stop repenting, the last sheep has come in, then the doors are locked. We see this during one of the bowl judgements, they repented NOT but blasphemied God.... And their kingdom became very dark, the withdrawl of the holy spirit has occured)
No early rapture, release, the day of wrath and judgement occurs whent he day of atonemnt is over.
