Daniel 9:26-27 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Isaiah 28:14-19 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.
Feast of Trumpets. September 18-20, 2020. The Feast of Trumpets points to the Rapture – the last great harvest. 1st Fall Feast. “Of that day and hour no one knows.”
While the four spring feasts look back at what Christ fulfilled at His first coming, the three fall feasts point us toward the glory of the second coming. The spring feasts are the source of our hope in Christ—His finished work of atonement for sins—and the fall feasts are the promise of what is to come—eternity with Christ. Understanding the significance of these God-appointed Jewish festivals helps us to better see and understand the complete picture and plan of redemption found in Scripture.
The next unfulfilled feast is the Feast of Trumpets. The Hidden Day / It was ‘hidden’ because they didn’t know the exact day it would begin due to the fact that it is the only feast that starts on a new moon. Thus it was a two day feast because they didn’t want to celebrate it on the wrong day. Concerning Rosh HaShanah, the Jews would typically say “Of that day and hour no one knows.”
The Feast of Trumpets points to the Rapture (and the ‘confirmation’ of a 7 year false covenant of ‘peace and security’) – and the last great harvest.
Are we approaching the time when the confirmation of the covenant is made AND the heavenly trumpet will be heard?
World Events Happening During Feast of Trumpets; Trump administration ‘doubling down’ on its claim that Saudi Arabia / MbS is lining up to confirm their / his normalization with Jacob. Five (5) more nations set to embrace Jewish state. What have I been teaching about the number five (5) for the past three (3) years?
James Rothwell The Telegraph•September 18, 2020
Five more countries are seriously considering peace deals with Israel, the White House has announced, as a close confidant to the King of Bahrain claimed Gulf states (plural) now regard the Jewish state as their most important ally in the region.
Mark Meadows, the White House Chief of Staff, told reporters on Air Force One that five countries hoped to follow the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in normalising their relations with Israel, but did not name them.
He was likely referring to Oman and Saudi Arabia in the Gulf region, while there is also intense speculation that Sudan in North Africa is close to taking that historic step.
It came as a special advisor to the King of Bahrain said in an interview with the Telegraph that the Gulf states believe Israel could be better suited than Washington in helping them achieve their regional goals.
“I think perhaps there is the beginning of a reduction in the dependency on the US and a shift over to Israel now,” said Marc Schneier, who was appointed to the role in 2018.
“It’s so much more accessible, to turn to an ally, a regional partner, if there are any concerns – whether it’s from a military point of view or an economic point of view. And I think you’re now going to see that shift.”
Mr Schneier, an American Rabbi, added that it was a question of “if, not when” Saudi Arabia would join Bahrain and the UAE in embracing Israel.
Though Saudi Arabia is a key ally of the United States and in recent years grown closer to Israel, the Kingdom’s leadership says it is not ready yet to sign a peace deal.
But President Donald Trump spoke optimistically about Saudi Arabia changing its mind earlier this week, along with up to nine other countries.
“We’re going to have a lot of other countries joining us, including the big ones,” Mr Trump said.
Israeli media reports have also pointed to Oman as the next country that is likely to embrace Israel, though many other countries in the Middle East have condemned the emerging, US-led alliance.
Turkey has warned that “history and people of the region will never forget and will never forgive the hypocritical behavior of the United Arab Emirates,” while President Recep Tayyip Erdogan initially threatened to cut ties with the Gulf state.
Iran has condemned the peace deals as an “act of strategic stupidity,” though analysts point out that both the UAE and Bahrain have shared concerns about the regime’s growing influence in the region.
Under the terms of the so-called Abraham Accords signed on Tuesday, the UAE and Bahrain have agreed to establish embassies, introduce direct flights and increase cooperation on security and trade.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Trump hailed a “new dawn” for the Middle East, while Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The blessings of the peace we make today will be enormous.”
The timing of the agreements was particularly auspicious for Mr Netanyahu, who is grappling with mass protests against his leadership, a corruption trial and a severe second wave of coronavirus which forced ministers to place Israel under a second nationwide lockdown on Friday.
The deals have also consolidated Mr Trump’s popularity with the Republican Right and evangelical Christians ahead of elections in November.
