Hello friends and may God bless you. There have been perilous times lately but we know that God holds us in His hands. Friday night we celebrated the Feast of Trumpets early with our best friends Hannah & James. The real time starts tonight (Sept 16th) at sun down in Israel and goes through Sept 18th. I believe an extra day was added because no one is sure when the actual day of the feast is. As I explain the feast, enjoy the pics from our celebration.

Here’s more info on the Feast of Trumpets (a.k.a. Rosh Hashanah/ Yom Teruah):
We enjoyed our own feast at Ruby Tuesdays before heading to our house. Pic of Olivia and Michael
Jesus Christ fulfilled the Spring Feasts. He was/is the Passover Lamb, he was buried during the feast of Unleavened Bread, and He rose on First Fruits. The Holy Spirit was sent on Pentecost. Many (including me) believe Jesus was born in the fall during Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles).

So the two feasts left on God’s timeline are Trumpets and Yom Kippur (day of atonement). Many believe the rapture will happen during Trumpets since it is often called the unknown day and hour. People did not know the time of the feast until the rabbi blew the Shofar (Ram’s horn). Also it is said that the last trump in 1 Corinthians 15:52 is the last trumpet (shofar) sounded at the end of Trumpets. Also as you read in the article, Trumpets draws a picture of the Groom coming for his Bride which lines up with the Marriage supper of the Lamb. People believe that Yom Kippur will be fulfilled on Judgement Day. Decide for yourself what you believe.

Like Chris’ new look? He has a pony tail now 🙂
We celebrate the feasts to remember what God has done and to look forward to what He is going to do. The fall season is my favorite time and I LOVE Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles). Of course, the feasts have nothing to do with salvation. Salvation only comes by Jesus Christ. The feasts were/are shadows and pictures of God’s plan for humanity shown through Jesus Christ.
Mmmmmm dessert 🙂
Will Jesus return on Trumpets some day? We will just have to find out. As you can see, it’s hard to know the actual time of the feast. Also the calendars have changed so much. We do know that Christ WILL return one day for His church. So we must always be watching and waiting. We must shine the light in this world while we remain.

The most important thing is do YOU know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Please don’t put it off. This decision will change your life. Links below with more info. My prayers are with you all! God bless & remember the High King lives & He will return!
