Unfortunately, we watched a well-known Bible teacher the other night on TV. He tried to make a point for a pre-tribulation rapture by breaking Scripture, prophecy, and Yahuwah’s biblical solar calendar. A dispensational understanding of Scripture has ruined this man’s understanding of the end, especially the Rapture. Now I know for certain this man is a false teacher and possibly a blasphemer, for he tried to blame his nugget on Ruach ha’Kodesh. The Ruach of Yahuwah would never break Scripture, prophecy, or Yahuwah’s biblical solar calendar.
This guy’s nugget of so-called revelation involved inserting seven years of tribulation between the 1st day of the seventh month, Day of Trumpets, and the 10th day of the seventh month, Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur. Now, any grade school child can count to 10. There are only 10 days from Day of Trumpets on 7-1 to Day of Atonement on 7-10, NOT 2,520 days, or 7 years X 360 days per year. Actually, there would be 2,530 days from Day of Trumpets in one year to the Day of Atonement seven years later. Now, look at your biblical solar calendar. How many Sabbaths are there between 7-1 and 7-10 on any given year? There are usually only one Sabbath, but there could possibly be up to two Sabbaths in that 10-day period. There WILL NOT ever be anywhere close to 364 Sabbaths, the number of Sabbaths in a 7-year tribulation period. Just for illustration, I used 52 Sabbaths per year for 7 years = 364 Sabbaths. That false Bible teacher wants you to believe that you can arbitrarily stuff over 350 Sabbaths into a 10-day period, that he tried to arbitrarily and artificially expand into at least a 2,530-day period. Come on man, how stupid do you think Yahuwah’s children are?
So, before I start screaming and tear the rest of my hair out, let’s look at Yeshua’s teaching on the Rapture in Matthew 24:29-31, “But immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. 31He will send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet (1 Cor. 15:52), and they will gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.” Notice that Yeshua DID NOT say “BEFORE the tribulation of those days,” just to be clear on what the Scripture actually says.
If you read the entire chapter of Matthew 24-25:13, you see in context that Yeshua is clearly talking about the final seven year tribulation at the end of human history as we know it. But notice that Yeshua states it plainly and clearly that there is going to be a short period of time AFTER the tribulation, in which we who are still alive will experience the Rapture of our mortal bodies to immortal bodies and those who are dead in Messiah will experience the Resurrection of their bodies to immortal bodies!
Apostle Paul is in complete agreement with Yeshua: 1 Corinthians 15:50-57, “Now this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahuwah. Neither does what is perishable inherit what is imperishable. 51Look! I tell you a secret truth: We will not all die, but we will all be changed. 52We will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53For this perishable body must put on what is imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. 54But when this perishable body has put on what is imperishable, and when this mortal body has put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55“Grave, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?” 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the Torah. 57But thanks to Yahuwah, who gives us the victory through our Lord Yeshua Messiah!” Notice that Paul confirmed Yeshua’s teaching that the trumpet blown at the Rapture is the LAST TRUMPET, NOT one BEFORE the last trumpet.
Paul stated it again in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, “We do not want you to misunderstand, brothers, about those who are dead, so that you do not grieve like the rest who do not have certainty about the future. 14For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, even so Yahuwah will bring with Yeshua those who have died in him. 15For this we say to you by the word of Yahuwah, that we who are alive, who are left at the coming of Yeshua, will surely not precede those who have died. 16For Yeshua himself will descend from heaven. He will come with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of Yahuwah, and the dead in Messiah will rise first. 17Then we who are alive, who are left, will together with them be caught up in the clouds to meet Yeshua in the breathable air. In this way we will always be with the Lord. 18Therefore, comfort one another with these words.”
Notice that it was the Master Himself who gave us the necessary timing Scripture of the Rapture: AFTER the tribulation. That should be pretty plain and simple for Bible teachers to understand, and it settles the matter for me. Notice that Paul DID NOT CHANGE THE TIMING AS HAD BEEN TAUGHT BY YESHUA! Paul simply clarified at which trumpet sound we would be raptured. You see, Hebrews, Jews, Natsarim, people of the Nazarene sect of Judaism blow lots of trumpets many times on the Feast or Day of Trumpets on the 1st day of the 7th month. Paul just told us at which trumpet blast we would be rapture/resurrected, at the LAST TRUMPET. There will be NO rapture/resurrection BEFORE the LAST trumpet. Let that soak into your spirit for a minute, and I will show you how that false Bible teacher breaks Scripture and prophecy by arbitrarily and artificially inserting a 7-year tribulation between a starting Day of Trumpets and a final Day of Atonement, a little over seven years later.
For illustration purposes only, let us pick some years to try out this false teacher’s false theory. Let’s say the Rapture/Resurrection occurs on Day of Trumpets in the year 2021. Then let’s arbitrarily and artificially insert a 7-year tribulation into our timeline after that Day of Trumpets in 2021. So now we come to the fall feasts of the year 2027, they have been terrible years of tribulation, desolation, destruction, war and judgment. This teacher wants you to believe that at the Day of Atonement in 2027 is when Yahuwah will pour out his final wrath and judgment on evil mankind. BUT WAIT A SECOND! Just 10 days BEFORE that Day of Atonement in 2027, there is a DAY OF TRUMPETS on the 1st day of the 7th month in 2027, on which will be blown the LAST TRUMPET in human history as we know it!!! Do you see the problem for this false teacher? He would have you believe that the LAST TRUMPET is blown (at least) 7 years BEFORE that LAST DAY OF TRUMPETS in human history as we know it. That is an illogical, impossible, unscriptural, and false interpretation of Bible prophecy. This false teacher is breaking Yeshua’s own Scripture teaching on the timing of the Rapture; he’s breaking Yeshua’s and Paul’s prophecies on the timing of the rapture, he’s breaking Yahuwah’s own biblical solar calendar, and he wants you to buy his book, so he can profit again off of your biblical ignorance. I pray for this man that the Father will rebuke him. He has come as close to blaspheming Ruach ha’Kodesh as any person I’ve heard in recent years.
Look at this from another angle. At Yeshua’s first coming 2,000 years ago, he fulfilled the spring feasts all in about 54 days, including the Day of Pentecost, ALL in the one year of 30 AD. When he comes again, he will fulfill the three fall feasts on Yahuwah’s biblical solar calendar all in about 22 days, ALL in the one final year. The biblical pattern is that Yeshua fulfills the groups of feasts all in the same year. To arbitrarily and artificially insert a 7-year period between any two of those feasts would break Yeshua’s pattern of fulfilling the Feasts of Yahuwah. He won’t do that. In a year approaching rapidly, Yeshua will return for Rapture/Resurrection on a Day of Trumpets, then only 10 days later he will pour out his final bowls of wrath on the Day of Atonement/Judgment, and will begin his Millennial Reign with the marriage supper of the Lamb beginning on the first day of Tabernacles, only five days after Judgment Day, on the 15th of the 7th month in a final 7th year of a Sabbatical years cycle.
Not only that, folks, this false teacher would have you believe that Yeshua is coming back two more times, not just once more at the end of time. By our illustration using his false theory for EXAMPLE ONLY, Yeshua comes back on Day of Trumpets in 2021 to Rapture/Resurrect the Natsari saints AND at the Feast of Tabernacles in 2027 to begin his Millennial Reign on earth for 1,000 years. Again, this false rapture teaching breaks Scripture, for Yeshua stated in John 14:1-4, “Do not let your heart be troubled. You believe in Yahuwah, believe also in me. 2In the house of my Father are many rooms. If it were not so, I would have told you, for I am going to prepare a place for you. 3If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come ONCE MORE and receive you to myself, so that where I am you will also be. 4You know The Way to where I am going.” Folks, you want to get in The Way today. You want to be a part of the Natsari congregation of Yeshua’s saints, one of the sect of the Nazarene. Give your heart and life to Yeshua today. We are running out of time and false teachers and false congregations are running rampant around the globe. Don’t buy into their lies and deceit, and don’t buy books and DVDs or CDs that support these false teachers. Grow up and read and study your Bible for yourself.
