Mark 13:33 Take heed, watch and pray, for ye have not known when the time is; 34 as a man who is gone abroad, having left his house, and given to his servants the authority, and to each one his work, did command also the porter that he may watch; 35 watch ye, therefore, for ye have not known when the lord of the house doth come, at even, or at midnight, or at cock-crowing, or at the morning; 36 lest, having come suddenly, he may find you sleeping; 37 and what I say to you, I say to all, Watch.'
What happens to the people who have decided they don't need to watch? Dunno, things probably not gonna go well for them, but thats just my guess.
Matt 24:36 36 'And concerning that day and the hour no one hath known -- not even the messengers of the heavens -- except my Father only; 37 and as the days of Noah -- so shall be also the presence of the Son of Man;
The key here is the DIRECT LINK between the unknown day and hour, and the days of Noah.
What happened in the days of Noah? Noah was taken to safety in an Ark, while the wicked were left to perish. We should expect something directly along those lines for the unknown day and hour we are WATCHING for now.
The unknown day and hour is another name for the feast of trumpets
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
Luke 12:39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
Revelation 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee
Did you know that God physically fulfilled Israel’s first four spring feasts of Israel to the exact day?
Jesus was crucified on the exact day of the Feast Of Passover and was buried (placed in the tomb) before sundown, the end of that day. He remained in the ground for three days fulfilling the Feast of Unleavenbread, and He resurrected from the dead on the day of the Feast of First Fruits. Fifty days later the Holy Spirit came just as Jesus had promised He would. The Holy Spirit came upon believers on the exact day of the fourth major feast, the Feast Of Weeks, which we know as Pentecost.
the fifth major feast which is The Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh HaShanah
How many more clues could the Lord possible give us? The feast of TRUMPETS? YEA, TRUMPETS.
in 1 Cor. 15:52 and 1 Thes 4:16, said believers would be raptured at THE SOUNDING OF A TRUMPET, hmmm coincidence?
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. Leviticus 23:23-25
No man, in any given year, can know the exact day or hour for the beginning of the Feast Of Trumpets which is celebrated in Israel even today. The commemoration will begin on one day or the other, (the first or the second day of the seventh month of Tishri) and at some unknown hour on one of those two days.
I can tell you, that if the rapture does not occur on the feast of trumpets (whichever year it happens) I'll be shocked. This year, the feast of trumpets is 17 days away. Could the rapture occur then? Yea, it could. Will I be watching for it? YES. Will you?
We are commanded to watch and pray. We are taught to be ready, unlike the unwise virgins who were'nt ready. Things are getting ready to turn upside down for this world.
The end of this month, many who are not even believers things are going to "get hot" for the world, that's means things get REALLY bad. Especially here in the US. Remove the salt and light from the world, remove the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit, and you get hell on earth. The day of the rapture and every day after that for 7 years will be really really bad days. I suggest you go look at Luke 21:36 and paste it to your foreheads. Pray that you may be counted worthy. grace and peace
