Sinai Trumpet

 

image

Trumpets are usually associated with the Feast of Trumpets, or the 7 Trumpets of Judgment in Revelation.

Also, the “last trump” is predicted, but when is the first trump?

A trumpet was also heard at Sinai, on Pentecost, after the Hebrews were told to prepare for 2 days. Would this be the first trump we will hear?

** There will always be other interpretations of the last trump. Some say it is the last of the 7 trumpets of judgment. But that would be another post.

At Mt. Sinai, God gave the 10 commandments to the Hebrew people. Since it occurred 50 days after the Passover, it is also called Pentecost.

God’s sequence of events:

2 days of preparation:

Exd 19:10 ¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes,

Exd 19:11   And be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

Thunder lightnings, fire, smoke, on the third day

Exd 19:16 ¶ And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that [was] in the camp trembled.

Exd 19:18   And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

The long sound of the voice of the trumpet- the trumpet is God’s voice

Exd 19:19   And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice.

Exd 20:18 ¶ And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw [it], they removed, and stood afar off.

There is a similarity between the events at Sinai and what is described for the end times in the New Testament.

This is why I think the Sinai “trumpet” could be our final signal to prepare for the tribulation.

The earth shakes, as it did at Sinai and Calvary, and there is a voice of the trumpet.

1. At the crucifixion:

Mat 27:51 Just then the temple curtain was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks were split apart.

Heb 12:26 Then his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “I will once more shake not only the earth but heaven too.”

2. For the last days:

Rev 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day when I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet

Rev 4:1 After these things I looked, and there was a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said: “Come up here so that I can show you what must happen after these things.”

I Cor 15:52 in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Rev 11:13 Just then a major earthquake took place and a tenth of the city collapsed; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

The First Trump – to prepare and purify

From the story at Sinai, there was a “2 day” preparation and purification for the encounter with God.

On the third day, there was a long blast of the trumpet, on the day of Pentecost.

It is possible that the first trump in the last days will sound when the saints are given the signal that they have only 2 years (“2 days”) left to prepare for the tribulation.

Amo 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.

The Lord is merciful – to give a final warning to prepare, and an encouragement that He is really coming back to help us.

The question is who will hear it?

Only those who are His sheep, and are actually listening.

It is possible to be one of God’s own, and not be paying attention at all. So these people would be unprepared.

The last trump – resurrection of the dead, and the meeting in the air

Many feel that the Lord will return at the Feast of Trumpets, at the last trumpet, but how does the feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) tie in with this?

Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets) occurs on the first and second days of Tishri.

The name “Rosh Hashanah” is not used in the Bible to discuss this holiday.

The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar).

The holiday is instituted in Leviticus 23:24-25.

The last trump is mentioned in Corinthians.

1Cr 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Tribulation may begin at Passover time?

For the bible to mention the last trump as the signal for the resurrection of the dead, and the meeting of the saints in the air with Jesus, implies that there was also a “first trump” earlier.

When would we hear this first trump?

First I assumed that the first trumpet would be on the first day, and the last trumpet would fall on the second (last) day of the Feast of Trumpets, since they sound the shofar for 2 days.

But the more I think of it, the first trumpet could also be sounded on the feast of Shavuot (Pentecost), and then the last Trumpet should be heard several years later on the second day of Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets).

Remember, Pentecost is 50 days (or almost 2 months after Passover).

There are 84 days (12 weeks) between Shavuot (Pentecost) and Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets). This is 4 months. The other 3 years consists of the time between the first day of Trumpets and the final appearance of Messiah.

Putting this all together:

I think the first trump will sound, or has sounded, to signal that there is a 2 year (“2 day”) preparation period for the tribulation to come.

I think the tribulation might start right at Passover, as the antichrist stops the Passover sacrifice in the temple, and places himself there as a point of worship instead.

If this is correct, then the time frame would look like this:

 

time and feasts of tribulation3

** 1260 days = 50 + 4 months + 3 years + 10 days

 

Notes:

There is also the viewpoint that the last trump occurs before the tribulation, instead at the end of it. I am not presenting that view here.

There is a different theory I have about what sacrifice is stopped at this time, and if there is a complete temple. For this see here:

https://heavenawaits.wordpress.com/wings-and-sacrifices-of-the-temple/

So, what do you think?

 

Will there be a warning trumpet before the Tribulation begins?

 

Or has it sounded already?

  1. […] here for […]

  2. My thoughts are:(rather I am writing out my thoughts in hopes of piecing it all together…)

    Nov 2008-Obama elected “it has begun” ( this is an ABSOLUTE for me) 🙂
    You and 2 others (that we know of) heard a trumpet in May? 2010
    2 days later would be May 2012….and Re-election year 2012
    ????Mayan prophecy 12/21/2012 ????
    3 days later-G-D “coming down from the mountain” would be May 2013
    Solar/lunar eclipses on Jewish Holy days September 2014/2015

    Are we sure the 2 day preparation is BEFORE the tribulation…because the final Solar/Lunar eclipses of the 21st century being on Jewish HOly days in 2014/2015 are throwing me off…..

    • check your math

      my way:

      2010 trumpet…… + 2 years = 2012

      2012 = Trib starts

      2012 + 3 1/2 years = 2015+ (not 2013)

      _____

      it has begun:

      Nov 2008 + 3 1/2 years = may 2012 pentecost trumpet before trib starts.

      different paths to the same time frame.

      • My math will always need a double check….this is very interesting…..so that would put His return on Sept 2015 Feast of Trumpets (last Trump)(Solar/Lunar)…and BEFORE the Great and Terrible day of the Lord..)

  3. Lets say for “theory” sake, that the Tribulation began in November 2008….(week of trouble=7 years)…3.5 years later (mid-week) is May 2012…which would be “2 days” after you heard the trumpet…the 3rd day would be May 2013 (G-D descending from the mountain BEFORE Solar/lunar eclipse on Jewish HOly day Sept 2014/2015)…I can’t figure this out on my own…will need divine revelation!!

    • do not get ahead of yourself…….”it” has begun does not necessarily mean that “it” = “tribulation”

      I think he meant that the season has started…there is no turning back now.

      “it” = “the season of the tribulation” which includes the build up to it, all players are in place now. All 4 horses of the Apocalypse are ready to ride.

  4. Agreed. That which restrains only has to be removed for the Anti-Christ to show himself in a world gone nuts.

    Perhaps, that which restrains is removed when Christ calls his Church before G-d pours his wrath on this earth.

    • YOU ARE RIGHT! I can’t believe I forgot about that…with all the debates about the pre, mid and post trib, I cannot believe that I forgot about the FACT that the HS has to be removed! I remember my mom telling me this when I was younger…she said the “restrainer” who is the HS had to be removed first…which of course would include all those baptized in with the HS infilling them…thus, the “catching away”…”in a blink of an eye”…

      • Just read this…had no idea that Michael had anything to do with this…learning sometin new every day: “I don’t think it’s coincidence that Michael is specifically mentioned as standing up right before the antichrist is revealed and we’re told in the New Testament that the restrainer must stop before the antichrist can be revealed. The restrainer is not the Holy Spirit, but Michael the archangel, the prince that stands for Israel. He is restraining the antichrist now until God’s timing. Then the antichrist will be allowed to reveal himself.”

        http://www.watchmanbiblestudy.com/BibleStudies/Definitions/Def_Restrainer.htm

        • it makes some sense….look at REv 12…..Michael and the angels are fighting off SAtan, in a war in heaven…finally he is defeated and cast down to earth….then the devil goes after the woman, after the CHild ( Church) is in heaven.

          • In another post..I think it was James? who said that Satan was cast our years ago as evident by the way the trees fell and the jewels that were found…I think it was somewhere outside of russia…it can get so confusing. I was taught that Satan had already been cast out and was roaming the earth to and fro….and I thought the restrainer was the HS and now I learn that Michael is the restrainer and that Satan is still in heaven?! WOW!

  5. Hi Lyndsey,
    You are confusing the Tunguska meteor strike in 1908 with the fall from Satan from heaven in 33AD (when Christ ascended) .They are totally unrelated. The meteor was just a rock falling to earth. Nobody believes it heralded the beginning of anything. Especially not me.
    Minor meteors and eclipses are far to common to be used to herald a great event from God.
    It’s got to be something HUGE!

    • That was it…the Tunguska Meteor in 1908…can’t remember who said it was Satan’s fall…

      Hope this isn’t too off topic…now that I have James’ attention…LOL…..I have been wondering what could actually occur to our earth’s atmosphere that would give the appearance of “a scroll rolling up” Rev 6:14
      The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

      I have wondered what in the world…or rather, astral world could cause our sky to do that…a near miss planet? Bigger than life Meteor?

    • good video…I never thought that the “peace and safety” came after we left…or that everything would return to “normal”

    http://www.prophecyupdate.com/

  7. ok…I am getting bits and pieces here and there….can someone give me a “list” of what is to happen and its order?

  8. just pretty much need to know when “our flight takes off” Laughing…:)

    • Lindsey, according to the Bible there is no one who knows when but God. There is really no way to estimate the exact time either except that the signs happening around the world Jesus said. But now there had been reports of ” trumpet ” sounds from the sky in many parts of the world from late 2011 to early this year. I am sure that these are the trumpet sounds of the Angels calling all to make sure you are prepared to meet your maker, GOD HIMSELF. These are my thoughts on the matter. I also believe that further significant signs will happen in 2014 and 2015 in the sky and on the earth.

  9. Lyndsey;
    You’re really cute. You make me smile. You have the faith of a little child. I think Marianne wants you to dig into scripture and get the answers for yourself. That’s what studying is all about. A year ago I had my faith shaken. I started to question everything I was ever taught because I was exposing myself to all the different groups in Christianity, but I went back and reviewed what I believed and found it to be true. A web site that helped me was
    http://www.rapturesolution.com/
    http://www.rapturesolution.com/beechick/Expanded.htm

    Actually, someone on this blog shared it with us. It won’t give you the dates, but it will help you with the sequence of events and he debates: pre-trib, mid-trib, post-trip and preterists. preterits was a totally new group Christian group to me. He’s only discussing the 7 years tribulation not Ezechiel 38. Silvan on the IDF page was arguing for it to happen at the end of the Tribulation, not before. A lot of Christians believe it will precede the 7 year tribulation. I have a tendency to go along with him now. I have Jon Courson’s commentary and I noticed that both him and Chuck Missler (on the video of the Rapture on the https://heavenawaits.wordpress.com/how-does-gog-and-magog-relate-to-armageddon/#comment-24611 was referring to the 10 virgins as the believers. We aren’t the virgins, we’re “The Bride” Those are the tribulation saints. I learned something new. I need to ask my pastor about that now. This web site is actually a book. It goes into a lot of detail. It won’t give you any dates. I’ve been a Christian long enough to know it’s bad to set dates. So many people have done that and then we get scoffed at and ridiculed. These people gave a lot of good reasons, why they believed the way they did. One interesting thing this writer makes on this web site is if you are in the tribulation you can calculate the exact date from the Abomination of Desolation to when Christ will return. It is possible. But for those of us who believe in the Rapture, we won’t be here, so it’s not important. I hope that helps you.

    • Thanks Kitti! See, you can write and well! 🙂

      My faith was shaken badly when my father died in February. It was the strangest thing and totally unexpected to lose faith like that. It felt like G-D was suddenly silent and I couldn’t “sense” him anymore. I also thought about when Christ was on the cross and he cried “why have you forsaken me”..that turning away or something. Events after that led me to Mariannes’ site and here we are-full speed ahead-Faith stronger than ever!

      And from being here, and being led to different scripture such as Zachariah 14 etc…I am realizing that maybe I wasn’t told everything all those years sitting in the pews at our Southern Baptist Church! Ha!-go figure…I should’ve known something was missing out of those sermons when I received the Baptism in the HS!! 🙂 Now Wouldn’t that just shake em up!

  10. Hmmm…2 days equalling 2 years? I’ve always interpreted this as literal days and/or 2000 years. (It could also be 2 years, I just haven’t looked at it that way). With the theory of each day equally a 1000 years (2 Pet.3:8), the 3rd day would be the day of Yah’s return, judgment, and 1000 year reign. You have the 6 days of creation (6000 years) and day of Sabbath rest (1000 year millenium). There are many other 2 day and 3 day references that could support this idea–generally they seem to imply 2000 years of the time of the gentiles and then on the third day Judah returns and believes in Yahshua. Here’s a couple: Hosea 6:2 “After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence”;John 4: 1 – 42, story of the Samaritan (gentile) woman at the well…specifially verses 40 and 43. V. 40: So when the Samartians came to him, they urged him to stay with them, and he stayed two days. V. 43,45: After the two days he left for Galilee (Judah)…When he arrived in Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him. I do believe the trumpet will sound to signal Yahshua’s return, and that it will certainly be on one of the feasts of Yahweh (which we ought to start keeping..I did this past year and it’s so amazing how it increases my faith and scriptural understanding), most likely Yom Teruah, then after his judgement will be the Feast of Tabernacles (Wedding feast). Let’s be ready, it should be soon!

    • hi Liz

      Your point is valid. The 2 day = 2 years is a little bubble in my head, since I do not wish to wait 2000 years for the Messiah to show up. I was just speculating.

      I do still see some connection with the Sinai trumpet and the return of Christ, since we are to prepare and purify ourselves, and make ourselves ready.

      Maybe the 2 day analogy means we should have been doing this for the past 2000 years.

      • Hi Marianne…most definitely I think it refers to the past 2000 years since Yahshua’s time here and resurrection (not sure exactly at what point the 2000 years would start), where you have mostly gentiles (and Israel/Ephraim) believing in him, and then after that, on the 3rd day, he will lift the blinders from Judah (Jews) and they will repent and believe. But, while Judah has neglected faith in Yahshua, the “church” has neglected YHWH’s Torah…Yahshua did not come to abolish the law…and fulfilling it does not mean we are not supposed to obey it (not for salvation of course, but to love and obey our Father’s rules for living). This may elicit all kinds of comments, and I don’t really want to enter this debate…but I do suggest people simply seek in prayer regarding Saturday sabbath keeping to start, just ask HIM if He wants you to keep it as the holy /set apart day for him rather than Sunday (and to really KEEP it, meaning not to work/spend money etc, and do more time in study and prayer). It has been so incredible to be able to REST for a full 24 hours each week and seek HIM, I love it! Bless you!

      • Years ago I was thinking about the 3 days that Christ was buried and then rose again…I was doing the math in my head (scary) and remembering that a 1000 years is as a day…now its 2010-two thousand and 10 years since Jesus rose and was ascended….perhaps/hopefully we are in the 3rd day? And after reading your post concerning the 2 day preparation G-D instructed Moses to tell everyone and then on the 3rd day G-D descended….now that I am writing this, perhaps what happened at Mt sinai was a preview of Jesus-3 days- and on the 3rd day he rose again,,,,but Jesus stayed here 40 days before ascending…hmmm….and then that being a preview of present day…2000 years (2 day preparation) and then now in 2010 we are in the 3rd day awaiting His arrival…coming down from Mt Sinai-Heaven-metaphorically speaking.

        Marianne, I have a question…when you heard the trumpet…was it on the same Jewish Holiday that ascended into heaven?…between the day that Jesus arose, 40 days he stayed here and then ascended…? Am I making sense?

  11. Meant to write “was it on the same Jewish Holiday that Jesus ascended into heaven?…”

  12. Ps.50:3 Our God cometh, and doth not keep silence; (=with sound of the trumpets breaking the silence, inflicting the panic)
    a fire devoureth before Him, and round about Him it stormeth mightily.

    Josh. 6:4 And seven priests shall bear seven rams’ horns before the ark; and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the horns.

  13. Shalom Gavriel.

    Now I recognize who you are. cool!

  14. We did not blow the Shofar on the last day of Elul, the morning before Rosh HaShanah, in order to “confuse the Satan.” Perhaps this means that the Satan would think that “they’re finished blowing, and have nothing left for the Day of Judgment.” But we say “Ashrei HaAm Yod’ei Teruah!” “Fortunate is the People who understand the power of the Shofar!”

    http://www.ou.org/chagim/yomkippur/ykshofar.htm

    Isn’t 7th millenium (1,000 years of Christ’s Reign) supposed to be like 10 Days of Awe between Rosh Ha’Shanah and Yom Kippur?

    So, Satan is CONFUSED on 1st day, while he has NO power whatsoever on the tenth day (Yom Kippur);

  15. I bought a video a few mths back at a christian bookstore regarding the search for Mt Sinai. They found it in Saudi Arabia and it is completely fenced warning others of trespassing. The altar for the golden calf is still there! What I did notice in the video was the top of Mt sinai the rocks are black. G-D descending upon the mountain in fire and smoke would explain why the rocks were black. The people in the video (a family) had sneeked over the fence and were walking on the mountain! They also showed the split rock of Hebron and the 12 pillars…very interesting to say the least. Anyway, I remembered the video when you wrote that G-D had descended upon the mountain on the 3rd day…now I know why the top of the mountain/the rocks are black!

  16. Here is a clip of the movie I was talking about…Mountain of Fire Part 2….at 7:55 they start talking about the black rocks on top of the mountain…

  17. My fav

  18. Many people in Israel start to have dreams and visions regarding the battle of Gog and Magog;

    Especially privileged, are revealed regarding the identity of Mashiach, especially Hassidim and Orthodox Jews, which got them shocked!

    Please, let me know if for last period religious Jews attacked Jesus or Christianity? I bet not!

    Miracles are happening and no one notices. Rav Kaduri year before his death revealed name of Messiah, and no one got excited, why???

    I tell Christians and Jews that I have been given a vision from God 3 years ago regarding identity of Messiah…everyone seem sceptical!

    I want to hear opinion of the Christians here?

    Do you beleive that someone, especially Jewish person, can be given supernatural vision from God (like Biblical Prophets) regarding identity of Messiah?

    I’m not saying I’m saint or a prophet…I’m very regular person…yet, I had this vision, which I think was a gift from God!

    • I believe your vision. 🙂

    • Don’t we already know who the Messiah is? His name was Jesus, or are you seeing someone elce?

      • LEatherneck.

        Gavriel started out as a traditional, but atheist, Jew. The identity of Jesus was revealed to him in a vision during a severe illness, and he converted.

    • Absolutely Gavriel! I would love to hear of your vision. At risk of making me sound completely insane (what else is new, ha!) for what it is worth, 20+ years ago, G-D “took” me to the site of the crucifixion!!! I don’t care what anyone says, for I know that somehow, however G-D did it, I was there! All senses were aware of everything and everyone! So, yes, absolutely I believe that G-D reveals Himself to whomever he chooses and however he chooses! My experience/dream/vision was a direct answer to a prayer request of desperately wanting to UNDERSTAND what Christ did- I had become so desensitized to it….well, needless to say, never again will I ever ever ever take what Christ did for granted!

      • I am interested, because I have sources that The Lord is revealing Himself to many others in Israel through visions and dreams…He is preparing His army for the End of Days battle…

        @Marianne – I know:)

        @Leatherneck – was someone else crucified 2,000 years ago on Golgotha for sins of mankind? No.

        @lyndsey – It’s incredible, because my vision began by some kind of guide, which I beleive was an angel (HS whispers, but doesn’t take you in different times and places) took me to the site of Golgotha – I saw Roman soldiers, I saw crowd possessed by Satan, I saw weeping women…I saw everything! (Sorry, but Catholics seem to be right, THE CROSS looks just exactly like a cross!) We daily crucify Lord by crucifying our divine souls on three dimensions of material world – without ransom of Jesus we’d have no hope…then crucified and nailed hands of The Saviour appeared as Him spreading His hands in eternal love towards mankind, and finally His hands appeared covering heads of angels (probably cherubim, but I didn’t see them) – at this point He was in a sitting position on His throne – revealing His true identity!
        I also saw Armageddon – which is a direct result of what mankind has done upon Golgotha…I felt so sad for people losing their eternal souls by their own will…it was terrible…people are stupid for accusing Creator of being a dictator, I recognized who the real tyrant was! it’s a privilege to be chastised by God!

        • My bad dude. I thought as a Jewish fellow you were seeing someone elce as Christ, so I asked the question. I was curious.

          I agree G-d shows himself in different ways to people. In a sleet/snow storm while on duty moving nuke weapons in Scotland, I felt the love of G-d as a spirit in the storm letting me know my prayers are heard. It was really a cool event in the middle of the night.

          Of course, I am still not perfect. Living in this strong, and good looking American male body is a struggle sometimes.

          • I was in a coma…if i’d die then, God forbid, I’d face certain hell (the worst part is, that your soul, more than anyone else agrees that you deserve hell), but I was “returned” on a condition, to properly fulfill my mission and help certain people out…I felt so ashamed of previously accusing God of tyranny (its in the devil), feeling His eternal love…I’m still on my way…

            • We all deserve hell, I just admit it. I do not deserve hell more than anyone elce. At least, I hope not.

          • I know its rough leatherneck :)! I’ll pray for you…laughing….

            • Living in this strong, and good looking American male body is a struggle sometimes….ur funny 🙂

        • That is incredible Gavriel! I remember the crowds and the noise and the gray, stormy clouds gathering. I had gone to sleep that night and “woke up” at the crucifixion site. I saw a man laying on a piece of wood in front of me on the ground. 2 roman soldiers came over..1 soldier held his arm and hand down while the other drove the nail…its hard for me to even write it. The interesting thing was that the nail was put in his wrist, NOT his hand. This is what I took with me as ‘proof”. When I saw the blood shooting upward I ran over to “this man” who was being murdered in front of me and with the dress I was wearing I took part of it and applied it to his wound so as to stop the bleeding. Then He turned his head to look at me ( I was on his right side) and when I looked into his eyes it was at this moment that his identity was revealed! I was shocked! I was kneeling right next to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I remember my heart leaping out of my chest as I gasped! I continued to try to save Him and while looking into his eyes he said, ” every ounce of blood counts” and that I had to let him die. I don’t remember his face, only his eyes and that he exuded beauty, love, authority, gentleness…I was captivated and heartbroken all at once. I remember making the decision to remove my hand from applying pressure on the wound and walking backwards while still looking at him laying there I woke up. I have never never never been the same since. I can’t even bring myself to participate in the Easter plays-shortly after this moment with Christ divinely organized by G-D, I would become so angry and upset at these churches that would put on the passion plays. I know they were trying to get across the same thing that G-d showed me but it was just too painful to see and experience again.

          • And I thought it was interesting that while I was trying desperately to save Him, that He was all along Saving Me! Every ounce of blood counted….

  19. greetings, just found your site …would like to know if you have more info
    on mountain of fire… nice site

  20. on youtube , in 3 diffrent countrys a loud “trumpet” noice was heard..could this be the last 1?

    • hi chelaine

      I am not sure but this trumpet has been heard for several years now.

      https://heavenawaits.wordpress.com/first-trump/

      see comments, where people write in also.

      2009/07/16 at 3:45 am was the first time I am aware of that someone heard the trumpet. And it was heard by a deaf woman.

      If these warning trumpets are “scheduled for 3 1/2 years, which is just a guess, the final one will be in the fall of 2012, or early 2013.

      These should not be confused with the 7 trumpets of judgment in Revelation.

  21. The author of this post wrote: “It is possible that the first trump in the last days will sound when the saints are given the signal that they have only 2 years (“2 days”) left to prepare for the tribulation…I think the first trump will sound, or has sounded, to signal that there is a 2 year (“2 day”) preparation period for the tribulation to come.”

    When I consider your thoughts within these two sentences – and I consider the signs in the heavens (Rev 12), which occurred on Feasts of Trumpets 2011 (a two day feast with the sounding of the shofar), then I add “two years of preparation” from that date the answer is 2013.

    That does fit within what I’ve come to understand – that the sign in the heavens as displayed above on Feasts of Trumpets 2011 was a warning – prepare your vessel and your lamp. I think that the Great Tribulation begins the day after winter and the day before Sabbath, 2013.

    We may be gathered together to meet Him in the air at the sounding of the 7th and last trumpet blast as written in Rev 11.

    In my opinion (not real sure about this opinion) the sound of the “rapture” Shofar may be heard on the Feasts of Trumpets 2016 or Day of Atonement of that year.

    “The seventh angel then blew [his] trumpet, and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion (kingdom, sovereignty, rule) of the world has now come into the possession and become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ (the Messiah), and He shall reign forever and ever (for the eternities of the eternities)!

    Then the twenty-four elders [of the heavenly Sanhedrin], who sit on their thrones before God, prostrated themselves before Him and worshiped, exclaiming, To You we give thanks, Lord God Omnipotent, [the One] Who is and [ever] was, for assuming the high sovereignty and the great power that are Yours and for beginning to reign” (Rev 11:15-17, AMP).

      It is interesting that Jesus told the disciples to pray that the abomination of desolation would not occur in the winter or on the sabbath.

      since that is the mid point, the tribulation could actually start on both winter and the sabbath.

      if we are watching, we will figure this one out.

  22. Yes and Daniel’s time line pins that date down very judiciously. The days within the 7 years of Daniel’s time line come to a midpoint – the day after winter and the day before Sabbath, 2013. It is worth the time to watch again – as we are only 9 months away.

    This is a 2 hour long presentation produced in 2006 after 20 years of study.

    This is not setting a date or the hour of “the rapture” but applying the words of the Lord in Matthew along with Daniel’s time line to establish this date.

    I believe there is an event that biings a “cry” that awakes the virgins from their sleep (Matthew 25). Then, the Great Tribulation, the final 3.5 years of this age begins.

    What event would cause a cry to be heard? An alarming, stunning realization, that the Anti-Christ is walking the earth and that the Lord will be coming very soon thereafter.

    The Lord says to his disciples (followers) –

    “So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place—let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [this]…Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now—no, and never will be [again]. And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect (God’s chosen ones) those days will be shortened…See, I have warned you beforehand” (Matthew 24:15-25, AMP).

    I can smell the coffee brewing. It is almost time for the virgins to wake up!
