Rosh Hashana 2020

As each year rolls around and Rosh Hashana gets closer in the fall of the year, I keep thinking that we are closer and closer to the return of our Lord Jesus.

Here is a listing of the feasts which we have talked about in the past.

Leviticus 23 outlines each of the seven feasts of Israel, and here is [what I believe to be] the prophetic significance of each:

1) Passover. This feast reveals that, just as the blood of the Passover lamb provided deliverance to the captive Israelites in Egypt, Jesus was crucified, becoming our Passover Lamb, at the same time that the lambs were slaughtered for the Passover meal during the feast (John 19:13-14). Indeed, Jesus the Messiah is our Passover Lamb (1 Corinthians 5:7), whose blood was sacrificed for our sin.

2) Unleavened Bread. In the Bible, leaven is often a picture of sin. But our Messiah was sinless, so He was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. In John 12:24, Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” Jesus was buried during this feast, the “grain of wheat” dying, then bursting forth as the “bread of life.” (Jesus declared Himself the bread of life in John 6:35.)

3) First Fruits. Jesus died on a cross for our sins, but He rose again as the First Fruits of those who are asleep! (1 Corinthians 15:20) “Those who are asleep” are believers who will be resurrected at the rapture! Jesus was the First Fruit, but we will be like Him in resurrection!

4) Pentecost. Occurring 50 days after the start of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost is the image of the harvest of souls described in Acts 2, the pouring out of the Holy Spirit, and the birth of the Church. We are currently living in the Church Age, and the prophetic calendar is about to turn the page to the fulfillment of the final three feasts!

Jesus and the Holy Spirit fulfilled the first four feasts in rapid succession in the spring of the year, but the final three have yet to be fulfilled and take place after the summer harvest in the fall of the year. Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh Hashana is the next in line for fulfillment. Pretribbers see this as an ideal place to fulfill the following scripture.

5) Feast of Trumpets. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) This feast points very clearly to the rapture of the Church! Jesus the Messiah is coming for His bride, and the trumpet of God will signal His coming!

6) Day of Atonement. The Second Coming of Christ is one event, two phases. At the rapture, believers will be “snatched away,” to meet Jesus in the air. However, following the tribulation, Jesus will come back to earth bodily and physically. Many Bible scholars believe this will be the Day of Atonement for the Jews who will finally “look upon Me [Jesus] whom they have pierced” (Zechariah 12:10) and recognize Jesus as Messiah (Romans 11:1-6, 25-36).

7) Feast of Tabernacles (Booths). During their wilderness wandering, the Israelites lived in tabernacles (booths), as they dwelt near the tabernacle of God. However, the Feast of Tabernacles points to the day when the Lord fulfills His promise to “tabernacle” once again with His people. (Micah 4:1-7) What an incredibly joyous day that will be when we rule and reign with the King of Glory!

Keep looking up! Jesus IS coming again! :grin:

My belief in the rapture of the church is strengthened by an often overlooked, prophetic passage in the book of Leviticus. It is prophetic because it completely outlines and foreshadows the life, death, resurrection and Second Coming of Jesus. It is a blueprint of the Messiah, given to God’s people centuries before Jesus was born on this earth.
These words impacted the way I view prophecy, “And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: “The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts”’” (Leviticus 23:1-2).
“My feasts,” the Lord said. Not just Jewish feasts, but feasts that God ordained and designed to tell the richest story of all time. The word feast in Hebrew is moed, meaning “a divine appointment.”¹ The Hebrew word for convocation is miqra, which means “a public meeting or dress rehearsal.”²


Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, Pentecost, Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and Tabernacles tell the story of the First and Second Coming of Jesus. That is why Paul wrote, “So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new-moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. For these rules were only shadows of the real thing, Christ Himself” (Colossians 2:16-17, NLT).
The four spring feasts rehearsed His first coming. Jesus was crucified on Passover. He was buried on the Feast of Unleavened Bread. He rose from the dead on the Feast of Firstfruits, and the Holy Spirit was poured out on the first believers on Pentecost.
The spring feasts were followed by a summer harvest, then the fall feasts were celebrated, rehearsing the Second Coming. The Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and Tabernacles are dress rehearsals for the Messiah’s return. Trumpets is also called Rosh Hashanah.


After the summer harvest, often interpreted by Christian scholars as the Church Age, the Feast of Trumpets signals the moment for all the workers to come home. “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath rest, a memorial of blowing the trumpets, a holy convocation" (Leviticus 23:24).
I love what Zola Levitt, a Jewish believer who is now with the Lord, wrote:
“The trumpet was the signal for the workers to come into the Temple. The High Priest actually stood on the southwest parapet of the Temple and blew the trumpet so that it could be heard in the surrounding fields. At that instant, the faithful would stop harvesting, even if there were crops, and leave immediately for the worship service.”³
The Feast of Trumpets foreshadows the rapture of the church!
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
The Feast of Trumpets is unique because all the other feasts are celebrated later in their respective months, when the moon is bright. Trumpets occurs on the first day of the month, at the new moon, when the moon is dark except for a thin crescent. After the Diaspora, the time when Jews were scattered throughout the world, Rosh Hashanah began to be celebrated over a two-day period, so that Jews living in different time zones could view the new moon and participate. It became known as “one long day” and the Feast of Trumpets became mysterious. Another idiom for it was the Hidden Day Feast or the Feast which you do not know the day or the hour. Sound familiar?


After the Feast of Trumpets, which foreshadows the rapture of the church, the next feast is the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, which foreshadows the Second Coming of Jesus the Messiah. The Day of Atonement recalls when Moses came down from the mountain, his face shining, and all Israel was saved. In the Second Coming, John saw Jesus appearing, His “head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire” (Revelation 1). Once again, Israel will be saved as the kingdom of heaven comes to earth.
The final Feast of Tabernacles foreshadows the millennial reign of Christ, and the people celebrate and recognize what God has always intended: to dwell—or tabernacle —with His people. There are many places in Scripture that give us evidence of the rapture, and the timing has been discussed and disputed among the best of Bible scholars and teachers. But nowhere do we see such a clear portrayal of God calling His people home as we do in the prophetic story told by the Feasts of the Lord. One of the best books I’ve read on the feasts is The Feasts of the Lord by Marvin Rosenthal and Kevin Howard who wrote, “Each feast is part of a comprehensive whole. Collectively, they tell a story.” They certainly do tell “the greatest story ever told,” the story of God’s love, redemption and promises to His people:
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet… the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall all be changed” (1 Corinthians 15:51-53).

I think we all know you feel that way, lol. :grin: You have been persistently waiting for the rapture, and it's evidenced in so many of your posts, and anyone on FP who is familiar with you is familiar with that! I quite appreciate that about you. I can see you hooping and a hollerin' wihen that day does come, Mr. G...and there ain't nothing wrong with that!

Whether here or raptured, I trust in the Lord wholly and I am trying to be much more focused on scripture and drawing close in to our Lord and Savior so that I have no need to be fearful in the sight of all these things going on around us....and also because I am a watchman and have been since 2008 when the Lord first drew me to Him and His Word. I do believe that all of these years of paying attention and learning has not been for naught. I believe that we all may be called at any time to witness and strengthen and encourage our brothers and sisters out there who have, perhaps, not really given these many scriptures concerning eschatology much thought. I want to be grounded and focused and waiting on our Father's desires of me, really now more than ever. .
