What is it? When is it? Do you know?  

by Molly Noble Bull

The Rapture is a future event mentioned in the Bible but not by name. It is merely described.
At the Rapture, true believers in Jesus Christi will be resurrected. Soon afterward, all believers alive on earth at that time will disappear from sight in the twinkling of an eye. And both groups will reappear in Heaven to live and reign with the Lord forever. 
Some say that the Rapture of the church will take place during one of the three fall Feasts of Israel, also called Feasts of the Lord.

The Fall Feasts are....

The Feast of Trumpets 
Also called Rosh Hashanh
Sunset Setptember 28 to Sunset September 30th 

Day of Atonment  
Also called Yom Kippur
October 8th 

Feast of Tabernacles  
Also called Feasts of Booths and Sukkot 
October 13th for seven days 

To understand what I am about to say next, you must first know that trib stands for tribulation or as some might call it—really bad times for folks living on planet earth. In the Bible, the Book of Revelation has a lot to say about the tribulation period.
But according to the Bible, nobody knows the day or the hour when the Rapture of the church will take place.
Nevertheless, some believe they know the season, and there are three possible times or seasons. They are Pre-trib, meaning the beginning of the last seven years of earth's existence, mid-trib, meaning the middle point of those last seven years, and post-trib, meaning the end of the seven last years.
At this point, I'm not sure what I believe regarding the Rapture. All I know for sure is that there will be a Rapture of the church because the Bible describes it. 
However, I just found a 4 minute video that puts a unique slant on what is called the pre-trib Rapture. I cannot say that I believe the premise on the video completely, but I can say that the findings are interesting.
The video mentions Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets, as a possible season of the year when the Rapture might take place. The Feast of Trumpets is one of seven feasts mentioned in the Book of Levities, chapter 23.
In 2011, the Feast of Trumpets began at sundown on September 28th and ended at sundown on September 30th. To learn more about the Feast of Trumpets, scroll down and read my article titled Rosh Hashanah.
And when you’ve finished, please leave a message. I want to know what you think

Nobody knows the day or the hour when the Rapture will take place. But it's fun think about it.

Hi, Molly

I'll have to wait until later to watch the video. Not sure about what to say about speculating about the rapture. I often wonder when, but try not to dwell on it.

As an aside, did you read Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye's Left Behind Series about those left behind after the rapture? I started to read that series several years ago but never finished it. I believe they used several references from the book of Revelations in that series.

I do believe in the Rapture and the calling away of the saints. I don't dwell on it much, but sometimes wonder who will take care of my dogs after I'm gone. I even keep plenty of dog food in the house that they can get to if it takes a few days for the looters to come and let them out.

I know, weird, huh? That's just how my brain works.

Thanks for writing, Cecelia and Teresa.

Molly, Your description of the three Fall Feasts is fascinating and enlightening. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I wish our pastor would address the feasts. I believe this is part of our heritege as Christians.

Dear Bonnie,
Thanks for writing. You said you wished your pastor taught on the Feasts of Israel. Why don't you suggest that topic to him? He just might do a sermon on it.
You could even provide him with the scriptures to back it up.
