No doubt that at some time in your life you have heard it said: “The Lord works in mysterious ways.” Although you will not find the word mysterious in the King James Bible, you are about to read some mysterious ways found in the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In previous chapters, you have read numerous prophecy solutions and interpretations not found in the commentaries or teachings of today.
Current day teachers tell us the Rapture could happen at any moment and that nobody can know the day or hour that it will occur; yet they are the same ones that argue about whether the Rapture will happen at the beginning, middle, or end of a seven-year tribulation period. If they teach and genuinely believe we can’t know these things, why do they even bother discussing as to when it will be? Is it not doublespeak to vehemently teach that no one can ever know the day and the hour of our Lord’s return and then debate about when it will occur?
In the previous chapter, you read why the “could happen at any moment” current day teachings are not in the least bit Biblically sound. The truth is, we can know this day and hour as they are revealed in the Feasts of the Lord and proven by the proper interpretation of Bible prophecy our Lord has provided us. Anyone that has taken the time to read through the whole Bible should know it contains example after example of our Lord telling us what He is going to do and then doing it. How many times did He remind Israel what He would do if they did not honor his commandments and stop their rebellious ways?
Remember when the wise men came to King Herod inquiring, “where is he that was born King of the Jews for we have seen His star in the east? King Herod went straight to the priests and scribes who informed him, “In Bethlehem of Judea.” The scrolls of the Old Testament prophets recorded that the Bread of Life would be born in the House of Bread, which is the English translation of the Hebrew word Bethlehem.
Previously we discussed how little attention they give to what Christ promised in John 16:13. It was not long before He ascended to the heavens that He said the Holy Spirit would show us things to come. If the Rapture and Second Coming of Christ are not two of the most important things to come, what are?
You previously read how Christ’s statement in Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” was updated by Revelation 1:1 when the Revelation of Jesus Christ was given to Him by God the Father, which was long after He ascended into heaven. And do not overlook Matthew 24:50; “The lord of that (evil) servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of.” These two verses are in complete opposition to each other, and they are only 14 verses apart. When conversely stated verse 50 would read: “The lord of that (good) servant shall come in a day when he looketh for him, and in an hour that he is aware of.” Anyone that takes the time to do an in-depth study of this portion of scripture will discover the current-day interpretation of both these verses is incorrect. The message delivered in both these verses must agree, or something is not right with your reading of one or the other or both.
We even discussed how our Lord warned us that in the last days, the teachings regarding the Rapture and Second coming of Jesus Christ would be false. You can find these warnings about our erroneous end-times teachings are not only in II Thessalonians 2:1-3, but also in Colossians 2, and Revelation 3:14-22.
Not only have many of these false teachings been exposed to you, but we also provided you with verses and original Greek and Hebrew word definitions to help you see the validity of these alternative interpretations that have been missed, misunderstood or ignored.
Among these new concepts and interpretations, we introduced to you are the Feasts of the Lord. We demonstrated and laid out to you how these feasts are God’s Master Plan for mankind. These feasts are 3 in 1 in that they are Commemorative, Prophetic and Redemptive. Not only do they spell out the pathway of salvation, but they also inform us of God’s appointed times; the times when our Lord is going to intervene in the everyday doings of humanity. They show that in the same way our Lord has laid out a pathway for personal salvation, He is implementing this same plan on a worldwide basis, thus allowing us to know when these appointed times will be. We also showed you scriptures like Colossians 2:16-17 and Acts 1:6-8, where our Lord told us the importance of His Feast Days and that we can know His appointed times.
Last, but not least, you have been told more than once that the seven-year tribulation period taught almost universally in the churches of today is wrong. There is a last seven-year period, but the Bible does not reveal it in the way we currently teach, and neither does it take place in the way or the manner our teachers currently teach. The portion of scripture it comes from is Daniel 9, and we demonstrated to you how our current day misinterpretation is entirely ridiculous. Actually, this doctrine has existed for centuries with very few ever taking the time to sit down and research it instead of leaning on what they learned in school. Because some great names in Christian theology bought this false doctrine, it became a staple in modern Bible eschatology. Please don’t misunderstand; there is no intention to take away from any of these great men of God. The Word of God tells us our Lord sealed these things until the time of the end, at which time God would pour out His Holy Spirit to show us these things. These men saw through the light which they had at that time, but now much more light is available since we have come to the end of days. Almost all of history has been acted out, and surely history and the Word of God agree with each other.
What you are about to read is accurate, convincing, and unarguable evidence that it is the Feasts of the Lord we should be paying attention to, and not the seven-year tribulation period. Not to say you can’t argue about it if you’re so inclined, but the proof is far greater than anything you can present to refute it, especially when coupled with all the other evidence we presented. What you are about to read is the Fall Feast Dates as revealed in the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Yes, all three of the remaining Fall Feasts of the Lord. We refer to the REAL non-rehearsal Feasts, which are built right into the book of Revelation. We speak of the Feast of Trumpets, (Rapture) the Feast of Atonement, (Second Coming) and the Feast of Tabernacles. Two of the feast dates are revealed by prophecies that fall directly on the Feast of Trumpets and Feast of Tabernacles in 2017. You expose the Feast of Atonement by calculating the shortest prophecy in the Bible and then counting off the days as presented. By counting the days, as shown in the book of Revelation, one can see these Feast Days fit perfectly just as our Lord laid them out to us in Leviticus 23. All 15 days, beginning with Tishri 1, the first day of the Feast of Trumpets and ending with Tishri 15, the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles. Our Lord has given us the framework and the precise schedule in which the Rapture, judgment of the wicked, Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the judgment of Babylon will be carried out. This information has been there for more than 1900 years and yet there are extremely few if any that know it is there, even though He told us it would be. Even though it has been there for more than 1900 years, there is precious little time before it occurs.
If after all the evidence you have been provided throughout this book, you still believe the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is about the events of a seven-year tribulation period; this should help you realize that what you are about to see is not just by chance. In previous chapters, we provided you with substantial evidence to determine the starting and ending dates of these prophecies which point to each of the fall feasts, and the time conversion table that determines these feast dates is consistent with the time table that solves all other prophecies in the Word of God.
The chart below lists these prophecies; where to find them in Revelation, and what they reveal.
However, there is something mysterious about the dates revealed in each of these prophecies. We can best state this mystery by saying, “If 2017 is the ending date for so many prophecies, including the revealing of all three Fall Feasts of the Lord, why wouldn’t this be the year of the REAL non-rehearsal Feasts of the Lord? Why didn’t the Rapture take place on the Feast of Trumpets in 2017, and why didn’t the Second Coming of Christ occur nine days later on the Feast of Atonement? Would not that be a logical deduction to make? The answer is not because all that you have read is in error, or that these particular events or time values are incorrect. The dates and times are entirely correct.
The answer to this is simple, but this writer must confess that there was a time he truly believed that these would be the actual dates of the events. However, even though this was in error, please don’t make the big mistake of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. There is a good reason for this, and it does not change the fact that our Lord is using the Feasts just as He set them up; just as He is using the Jewish wedding ceremony as the pattern for the Wedding of the Lamb.
First, these dates do reveal the Feasts of the Lord which have been sitting right there in front of us. They also provide another witness to demonstrate the end times will be carried out in the Feasts of the Lord framework, and not a seven-year tribulation framework. Just as all the Spring Feasts fell on the exact appointed times, so will all the Fall Feasts.
A second reason as to why these feasts did not take place on these exact dates is a rather simple one. Even though the solution to these prophecies fell on a commemorative Fall Feast Day, they were the solution to a different but specific prediction. The 3½ day prophecy of Revelation 11:9 is the 3½ years the dead bodies of God’s witnesses will be left to lie in the streets. This prophecy begins with the first crucifixion by ISIS on March 22nd, 2014, and terminates on the Feast of Trumpets in 2017. The second 3½ year prophecy appears two verses down. Revelation 11:11 says, “after 3½ days,” which one can interpret in two different ways. One can interpret it as saying after the 3½ days of verse 9 are over, or one can interpret it as an additional 3½ days, at which time the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet. It is this that signals the beginning of the Rapture of His saints.
Most people would interpret the “after 3½ days” of verse 11 to be saying after the 3½ days mentioned in verse 9, but that is not the case. There are two distinct 3½ day (year) periods that take place in Revelation 11. This mistake is avoidable because the same situation appears two chapters prior to Revelation 11. In Revelation 9, we find prophecies of 5 months mentioned twice. In Revelation 9, the length of time these prophecies are the same, but the periods they cover are entirely different.
This mistake is also avoidable if you pay close attention to every word. Revelation 11:11 does not say, “at the end of the 3½ days the spirit of life from God entered into them,” it says “after.” That entirely agrees with how Daniel tells us the end will come upon us. Keep in mind the “he” in verse 25 is the last days Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition whose identity you should realize by now is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of ISIS and last Khalifa the world of Islam will ever know.
Daniel 7:25-26 (KJV) 25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. 26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
The main characters of this prophecy are the little horn, also known as the King of Babylon cast out of the pit, and the saints of the most high. The saints of the most high are the ones delivered into the hand of ISIS until a time, and times and the dividing of time; which is similar to, but not identical to the 3½ days (years) of Revelation 11. The dividing of time can be, but does not necessarily mean ½ time or ½ year; it only states the fourth year gets divided in some way. It is suggesting a different less specific length of time than the prophecy of a time, times, and half a time; which is precisely 3½ years. These verses do not say what one would first think when reading them.
Both the lengths of time portrayed in these two verses are anything but precise by our standard. The first is the 3+ year period of time the Saints were astonished as they were delivered into the hands of ISIS by their Muslim neighbors and friends of many years. The time given for this same event in Revelation 11 appears at face value to be the same but is actually different. Revelation 11:8-9 is different in that it is a 3½ year, very specific date to a very specific date prophecy that only applies to the Saints that were being crucified by ISIS. The time involved in these two prophecies overlap, but they are not precisely the same. What we have is another example of what we see with the 1260 day and 42-month prophecies of Revelation 11. They appear to be the same length of time at first glance, but they are completely different lengths of time that describe prophecies where the times involved also overlap.
It is also true of the less specific length of time meant by “But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.” An amount of time is not given here as it correctly states Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s kingdom shall be taken away and then it will be consumed and destroyed until the time of our Lord’s return at which time He will destroy it entirely. Abu Bakr was forced to flee his kingdom in October of 2017. President Donald Trump announced on March 20th 2019 that ISIS will no longer hold any territory by the end of the day. Even though Abu Bakr had his dominion taken away and his loyal jihadists no longer hold any land, there still remains a large number of them in the area that are more than capable of regrouping and causing lots of trouble. That means they will remain a force to deal with until our Lord returns. As you can tell by this prophecy, our Lords return is very near.
Thirdly, the solving of the second 3½ day prophecy in Revelation 11 points to the last fall feast season before our Lord returns. It serves as a final warning notice before the actual events take place. It could serve as a date that marks a point of no return for mankind; similar to what happened when the sins of Judah reached the point that the Lord instructed Jeremiah not to pray for these people anymore because He would no longer hear the prayer.
There is no need for any prophecy to fall precisely on the Feast of Trumpets because it states “after.” We already know the exact day and hour the Rapture will take place, so all that is needed to know is the year when this last 3½ day/year prophecy is over. This explains why our Lord told us to watch; which you were previously informed is the same word as to be vigilant in the Greek. Our loving Lord and Heavenly Father give us example after example in His Word of how He always warns, usually again and again and again, before He judges. It could very well be the last warning to those that are His, a warning that the rest of the pagan world would never believe and a warning of which almost all of Christendom is not aware.
A fourth reason the Rapture did not happen in 2017 even though the fulfillment dates of several prophecies are in 2017 is that there is still one more prophecy in Revelation to fulfill before our Lord returns. This verse tells us it will be one of the Feasts of Trumpets after the Man of Sin wears out the saints of the Most High that our Lord will return and pronounce judgment on the Earth. You can find it in the same chapter of Revelation that informs us of the first six seals. It is the opening of the fifth seal.
Revelation 6:9-11 (KJV) 9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
There is a definite length of time that exists between the time when the Man of Sin no longer exercises his power over the saints and the time our Lord returns. It is during this period that His dominion is being consumed away until our Lord returns, just as this next verse describes it:
Revelation 17:11,14 (KJV) 11And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. (According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary, perdition means to destroy but not total destruction.) 14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Both of these verses are confirming that ISIS will be destroyed, but not with total destruction. It is at the end of this segment of time that our Lord will return. It is this point in time we find ourselves right now. ISIS and their Caliph no longer have power over the populations they once controlled, and the territory they control is now back in the hands of the previous owners. At the time of this writing (6/01/2019), the area controlled by ISIS is non-existent, but there are said to be around 20,000 ISIS fighters that remain in the surrounding area that may one day regroup as a fighting force. However, their leader still exists and is continuing to plot the deaths of people all over the world. With that said, the most important thing we need to know from Revelation 6:11 is what is meant by the words “little season.”
Interpreting the Period of a “Little Season”
There are several ways we could interpret this “little season,” but only one of them will be correct. Let’s take a look at these possibilities and see if we can come up with the correct one by using the information given us in the Word of God.
As we learned previously, the Hebrews always celebrate the Feasts of the Lord on the same appointed days on the Hebrew calendar. However, even though they always celebrate them on the same day, they are not always the same amount of time apart. The Gregorian year is 365¼ days with every fourth year having an extra day to keep the calendar in sync with the Earth’s position in its orbit around the Sun. The Hebrew year is 354 days in length with an extra month added seven times every 19 years. To keep their calendar in sync with the Earth’s position in orbit around the Sun an extra month gets added every 3rd, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 19th years. This means that in contrast to the Gregorian calendar, Hebrew years can vary in length from year to year. To demonstrate this, let’s take the dates of the Feast of Trumpets beginning in 2017 and measure them from the start of the new year on the Gregorian calendar. Remember, the Feast of Trumpets is always Tishri 1 on the Hebrew calendar so the date given on the chart after January 1st is the date of Tishri 1 on the Gregorian calendar of the corresponding year.
Because Hebrews use the lunar calendar, and one orbit of the moon around the Earth takes 29½ days, there can be quite some variance in the Gregorian calendar date the Feast of Trumpets falls on. The chart included demonstrates this. From this chart you can see that the “seasons” are not all the same; some are shorter or longer than others. By looking at this chart, you can see that the little season or shortest season here would be the Feast of Trumpets 2021. You may be thinking this is not valid because the proper description would be that the 2021 Fall Feast season is shorter and not little. That is understandable, so let’s take a look at the original Greek word used here and see what its definition is.
First, it’s important to understand that different languages and cultures do not always express things the same way. The word used for little is the Greek word “micros,” which gives us the English word Micro. According to Strong’s, it means small in size, quantity, or number. In the figurative it means least, less, little or small. From this it is apparent that the interpretation you just read is more than valid since the world little is used right in the definition itself and the Feast of Trumpets 2021 is least in size, quantity, and number.
This “little season” along with the verses in Daniel and Revelation shows us the 8th beast kingdom, the kingdom of the little horn, will be in the process of being destroyed or consumed away until our Lord returns. That would mean the solutions to the other two prophecies of time that point to 2017 are not the appointed time of Christ’s return, but rather a final warning as to the nearness of that appointed time. Instead, they mark the beginning of the end of the Man of Sin as well as the rest of sinful men. According to the writings in Revelation 11:11 and Daniel 7:25, if interpreted correctly, it would leave a little more than 3½ years before our Lord returns. It makes sense that our Lord would be a little vague about revealing the exact time of His return here because He wants us to use the knowledge we have acquired from knowing Him as Priest and King to be able to know the rest. We can demonstrate this by the fact that He has taken us through prophecy to show us the year to be watching the skies. By knowing Him as Priest we already know it will be on the Feast of Trumpets thus securing the month and day. By knowing Him as King or Lord of our lives we know the cry will go out at midnight at which time He commanded us to go ye out to meet him. If we honor the Feasts of the Lord as He commanded, He will not catch us off guard.
We can find even stronger evidence that points to the “little season” being 3½ + years in the definition of the word “season.” Remember one of the meanings of the word season, as translated in this verse, comes from the ancient Hebrew word môʿēd, which is an appointed time of the Lord. Since they translated this from Greek, and the Greek language has no word for môʿēd, how can we know for sure this is referring to appointed time of the Lord. It’s easy, just read the verse and see who they are asking and who is doing the answering. It says; “How long, O Lord, holy and true,” which tells us this is an appointed time of the Lord!
Now, how can we make the jump to defining the time value of this “little season” to be 3½ + years in length? We can do it in a couple of ways. By using the precise definition of a “little season,” we know that it is one of the shorter appointed times of the Lord. That means it should be one of the little or shorter time duration’s listed in the chart in chapter three. Or, to describe it another way; the same duration of time as one of the other prophecies in the Word of God.
It should be obvious why it can’t be the space of about half an hour since it is simply too short a length of time to consider. The same is true for an hour, which is only 15 days. There is no prophecy in scripture that uses only a day by itself, and even if there is, we are already past that length of time. The next shortest appointed time used in Bible Prophecy is found twice in Revelation 11. It is used in verse 9 to determine the amount of time the Man of Sin will be crucifying God’s witnesses and leaving their dead bodies lie in the streets. It is used again in verse 11 to determine the length of time it will be from when the practice of leaving the dead bodies lie in the streets will stop until the time when they will be caught up to be with the Lord. By process of elimination it almost has to be the after 3½ days (Years) because the next shortest prophecy is for five months, which is equal to a hundred and fifty years.
Remember back in the chapter on Deciphering Bible Prophecy; we discussed how to calculate the stranger lengths of time. We are talking about the time duration’s such as a long season and of course, that would even include a “little season.” Remember we told you the solutions to those lengths of time we can find somewhere else in the Word of God. Well this is true here because as was stated in the above paragraph, the amount of time after the dead bodies are no longer left to lie in the streets and the time they are called up to heaven which is the rapture of His saints is after 3½ days.
Revelation 11:11-12 (KJV) 11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Abu Bakr al Baghdadi was named Caliph of Islam on 6/29/2014. If you add the 3½+ years to the after 3½ years the total amount of time is 7 + years. That would place the return of our Lord to be in the Fall Feast Season of 2021.
We can establish our third and most reliable witness to our Lord returning in 2021 through the prophecy of the 70 weeks in Daniel 9. As previously discussed, the 70 weeks marked off a space in time in which our Lord was prepared to forgive Israel and release them from serving the rest of their sentence. If Israel stopped their rebellious ways, He would return to Earth and set up His Kingdom and restore Israel to the prominence she once had. This 70 weeks prophecy was divided into 7 weeks, 62 weeks and 1 week with each week being equal to 7 years. Israel did not repent, so He delayed Final judgment, and Israel was made to serve out the rest of her sentence. Since God set apart a final seven-year period then, it should come as no surprise that He would do it now since 7 is a number which shows completeness. What our Lord gave us in the last week of Daniels 70 weeks prophecy is a picture of a trial run, or as some call it a “dry run” at the end of time. If He gave a final seven-year period at the end of the First Covenant, why would He not do the same for the Second?
In addition to this, the 70th week of Daniel was divided into two 3½ year periods just as we see the two 3½ day (year) periods in Revelation 11. The beginning date of the last week of Daniels 70 weeks began with the anointing of Christ when He was baptized and began His ministry. It would only stand to reason the beginning date of the last week (7 years) of the Second Covenant starts with the anointing of this Man of Sin and Satan in the Flesh. The time when he became the final Khalifa of Islam, which was June 29, 2014.
NOTE: It also should be noted that God gave Noah a seven-day warning before the rain was to start falling. Noah knew precisely how much time was left to prepare, and when it was necessary to seek safety by entering the ark.
There is yet another prophecy that would give further credence to a final seven-year period set aside at the end of time. It comes from a place that you probably would never expect or even consider. It’s the prophecy of the “seven times” found in Daniel 4, which was covered previously in chapter 4 of this book. This prophecy warrants further consideration and investigation because it’s a prophecy that deals with the King of Babylon. The King of Babylon at the time of this prophecy was King Nebuchadnezzar, but don’t forget that Isaiah 14:19 warned us the King of Babylon is one day going to return from the grave. This future King of Babylon is going to be “cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch.” If you have any doubts as to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi being this future King of Babylon cast out of the grave, let’s take a look at a few of the similarities between these two kings.
- King Nebuchadnezzar & Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi both ruled the same land area.
- Both Kings established relationships with the beasts of the earth. Nebuchadnezzar with the literal beasts of God’s creation, and Abu Bakr with the lone wolf beasts that kill at his command. Not to forget that almost everyone left in Abu Bakr’s Babylon has taken the mark of the beast which proves they have not the love of God in their hearts.
- Both King Nebuchadnezzar and al-Baghdadi made an image that all people in their domain were forced to worship under penalty of death.
- Both Kings were guilty of killing their own people.
- Both Kings were forced to give up power over their domains.
- Neither Nebuchadnezzar or Baghdadi gave God the praise and credit He deserves because;
- Both Kings were Gods unto themselves. Nebuchadnezzar because he reveled in his accomplishments and greatness and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi because Muslims believe their Caliph to be Allah in the Flesh.
Note: There were six different kings of ancient Babylon. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is the seventh, which is the Biblical number of completeness.
So it should be concerning the third and last Babylon. Once this Man of Sin with the heart of a beast was proclaimed Caliph of Islam the antichrist, it should be seven years before Jesus Christ will destroy Babylon and take His rightful place as King of kings, and Lord of lords.
The REAL Fall Feasts as Revealed in the Book of Revelation
It is with much hope and prayer that as you read the rest of this chapter, you will see the overwhelming proof that our Heavenly Father and His son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ have not hidden anything from us. They have seen to it that we have all the information on things that are important to us. Like a good Father; He has revealed the timing of the end time Feast’s in such a way that we could not possibly know when they would occur more than seven-years in advance. No responsible father would give his children important information before they were ready for it. To do so could and probably would do their child harm. Knowing, however, that this information is needed and would indeed be beneficial to us, He provided it to us so that we may use it wisely, and in so doing bring more praise and glory to Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. Knowing this information should have an impact on all that receive it. Hopefully, it will bring joy to know that in a short amount of time you will meet our Savior, the Lord of lord’s and King of kings that gave His life so that we may live. It should bring joy to know that the evil of this world, which is already much eviler than we would have ever imagined, will soon be set right. However, you will now be held responsible for making sure that you and your house and your friends and acquaintances are aware of these events that will soon be upon us. We need to let those we share the Gospel with know that they may not have the luxury of a second chance, as once the Rapture takes place, the fate of the lost is sealed. We recommend that you reread and do the research on the Bible chapters that reveal these Appointed Times so that you are well equipped to relay the information to others.
Rest assured that what you are about to read is as REAL as REAL gets. It is not the case that these sequences of events could come around again in a few years or even a thousand years because of the way they occur. The information used to solve these feast dates is exactly what the verses are describing. They serve to verify that the Feasts of the Lord is the framework our Lord will follow (naturally) and not the man-made seven-year tribulation period as they currently teach. It is these two prophecies along with “about the space of half an hour” that reveal the Feasts of the Lord framework in the book of Revelation. The prophecies point to the appropriate feast days, which verify the appointed times, just as God told us way back in the first chapter of Genesis, even before He created us.
As the title of this chapter alludes to, the Fall Feast days are built right into the book of Revelation. If you follow the scriptures they will lead you from the Feast of Trumpets to the Feast of Atonement and on to the Feast of Tabernacles. By this, we mean that if you know the Rapture falls on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets then you know the Second Coming of Christ will occur nine days later on Tishri 10, the Feast of Atonement. If you study Revelation, you will see and be able to account for each and every one of the days from Tishri 1 to Tishri 15. One can do this because our Lord has informed us of what will happen on each one of these days!
IMPORTANT NOTE: As we discussed earlier, the prophecies about to be revealed point to the Feast Days for the year 2017. It’s rather obvious since the Rapture of His saints and the Day of the Lord did not occur in 2017, these were not the dates of Christ’s return, but rather the starting point from which the little season begins. Because the Fall Feasts of the Lord are always Tishri 1, Tishri 10, and Tishri 15, you could plug the Fall Feasts of any year into the book of Revelation, and they would fit perfectly. It is the ability to watch and understand the prophecies our Lord gave us that makes it possible to know the year. That is the purpose of Bible prophecy, it warns us of the things to come, and points to the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We will show you how these prophecies reveal the 2017 dates, but the Feast dates posted in large letters will be the Gregorian calendar dates of the year 2021 Fall Feast Season, which would seem to be when the non-rehearsal Feasts of the Lord will occur.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: While the author has researched and is quite comfortable with the information within this book; that does not mean that there is not more to be said or that there is not the possibility or error in the interpretations. Unfortunately, error is a part of the learning process. However, you should know by now that the return of our Lord is an appointed time that you should know, and while you should be convinced of the month, day, and hour our Lord will return, knowing the year is a little more difficult because you are dealing with things that have yet to happen. For this reason the author strongly suggests that Bible prophecy, as well as the Feast’s of the Lord, be studied and implemented in your life. If you seek Him earnestly, there is no end to the awesome things He will reveal to you. Since there is absolutely no doubt of the month, day, and hour He will return, it would be wise to be spiritually prepared, ready, and watching on that day each and every year until He does return. With that said, let’s look into:
The Fall Feasts of the Lord As Revealed in the Book of Revelation
FEAST OF TRUMPETS
September 21st, 2017 Rapture of the Saints Followed by day 2; “The Day of the Lord.”
Now to the good news which is soon to be upon us. We will start with the Feast of Trumpets, which is a two-day feast that corresponds to the day of the Rapture of His saints, and directly followed by the Day of the Lord. The Day of the Lord is not the Rapture, nor is it the Second Coming of Christ as many of today’s Christians seem to believe. Because the overwhelming majority of current-day churches have no idea what the Feasts of the Lord are, the teaching throughout Christendom for years has been that the Rapture will come upon everyone as a thief in the night; but that’s not at all what the Bible says. If you read 1st Thessalonians 5:2 closely you will see it is the Day of the Lord which will take everyone on earth by surprise because it comes upon them as a thief in the night. The reason this is true is that it immediately follows the Rapture. All of the Disciples of Jesus Christ that knew when to look for His sign, except the 144,000 teleported to Israel, have been gathered up by His angels. The only people left behind are unbelievers that have rejected Christ and believers that were correct in their belief that He would come upon them as a thief in the night and that He could return at any moment. Unfortunately, they did not know when that moment was, so they missed the Rapture because they had no idea when their master was returning. They did not have any idea what the Sign of the Son of Man is, nor did they fully understand what He was saying when He told them;
John 15:15 (KJV) Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
You can find the passage that points to the Feast of Trumpets in Revelation 11:7-13. We find this prophecy in the exact place one would expect to see it, in the chapter where God reveals what will happen to His witnesses. Our Lord reveals the date of this Feast of Trumpets to us is in a very subtle way. You can read verse 8, the verse that discloses it 50 times and not see the vital information that it conceals. We start with verse 7:
Revelation 11:7 (KJV) And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
Revelation 11:3 reveals the time when they shall have finished their testimony. It is the time of his witnesses, which is the 1260 days (years) that began with the setting up of the Dome of the Rock and ended with Israel becoming a nation again. It is the 1260 year period from 688 A.D. to 1948 A.D. This takes us from the early years of Islamic conquest to the last years of the Ottoman Empire when the beast (Islam) suffered a wound to the head, meaning they absolved the position of Khalifa of Islam.
As you know from reading the previous chapters, the beast that ascended up out of the bottomless pit is ISIS, which is the old Babylonian Empire returned from the grave. This wound to the head of Islam was healed on June 29, 2014 when Abu-Bakr al Baghdadi, was declared the leader or Khalifa of Islam. Abu-Bakr al Baghdadi is the head of ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, located in the same geographical area as the old Babylonian Empire. He is the one that declared war on God’s witnesses and killed them by the thousands in the most horrific ways. He is also the 4th Horseman of the Apocalypse where it is said, Hell was with Him.
Revelation 11:8 (KJV) And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
This verse contains and conceals the information needed to reveal the Feast of Trumpets of 2017. It mentions nothing of time, but it has the information you need to determine the beginning date of the 3½ day prophecy of the next verse. Please, read it over and over and see if you can find it before you read any further. There is one word in this verse that is of utmost importance, the four-letter word also. When you read this verse, your attention focuses on the meaning of Sodom and Egypt, and you don’t realize “where also our Lord was crucified” is saying the dead bodies were also crucified, just as our Lord was. The crucifying of His saints allows us to search for a specific starting date because there have not been any crucifixions for hundreds and hundreds of years. The Spring Feasts of the Lord began with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ; which occurred on the Feast of Passover. The Fall Feasts of the Lord began with the crucifixion of His servants, which as He tells us in His Word, is the same as crucifying Him. The crucifixion of these bodies is very important because of the next verse.
Revelation 11:9 (KJV) And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
This verse states that everyone on Earth will see their dead bodies for 3½ days, (Years) and will not bury them; which describes what happened precisely. The whole world watched this, but did practically nothing worth mentioning to stop it. As was explained previously, 3½ days is equal to 3½ years in prophetic time. There are 1279 days in 3½ years. This 1279 day figure is verified earlier in this same chapter by the 42-month prophecy, which is 1279 years because there are 1279 days in 42 months. This period is in months meaning each day is equal to a year. Since this prophecy is 3½ days which is equivalent to 3½ years, its real value is 1279 actual 24 hour days. Our Lord provided us with a double-check for this equation in the very same chapter of scripture!
Revelation 11:10 (KJV) And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Just as in the previous verse, the practices listed here are all Muslim practices. Islam is the only religion that currently recognizes and practices crucifixion as a means of execution. Islam is the only religion that leaves the dead bodies of the enemy it kills lie in the streets. As described in this verse, they are the only group on earth that gives gifts to each other to celebrate the death of their enemies. This shows that Islam does not honor life, it celebrates death. As you read previously, the two witnesses are not just two witnesses. They are all those of the House of Israel and the House of Judah that love the Lord their God with all their heart and love their neighbors as themselves. In other words, they are the true disciples of Jesus Christ. Christs’ witnesses torment those that are lost because of their likeness to Christ in the testimony they have. Just as Christ said, if the world hated me, they are going to hate you. (Refer back to chapter 9 of this book to see how the REAL identities of these two witnesses are determined.)
Revelation 11:11 (KJV) And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Here again, we see the 3½ days, which means 3½ years or 1279 twenty-four hour days listed again, but this is a different segment of time than the first the 3½ days mentioned in verse 9. The 3½ days mentioned in verse 9 is the length of time the Man of Sin will crucify His witnesses, and leave their bodies to lie in the streets. The “after 3½ days of verse 11” is the 3½ years plus that the bodies of His two witnesses will lie in their graves before the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet. This second 3½ year period should or would represent the time period referred to as the “little season” of Revelation 6:11. Because these two witnesses are a metaphor for all God’s witnesses, this is the resurrection of all His witnesses that have died previously.
Revelation 11:12 (KJV) And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
Here is where it all comes together, but you have to recognize that the “great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither” is revealing to us the actual Rapture of the saints. The two witnesses represent all God’s witnesses, so the voice calling from heaven saying “Come up hither” is the Rapture of all God’s witnesses that are to resurrect from the dead.
This passage is saying that the Rapture of God’s witnesses will happen 3½ days after the first 3½ days (3½ years in Biblical prophecy) of his witnesses being killed by the beast that ascended up out of the bottomless pit. That agrees with Daniel 7, which tells us the beast will have power over the saints for a time, times and dividing of time. A time is equal to one year, time’s is two years, and the dividing of time can be any fraction of a year. While it may seem less accurate than the 3½ days of Revelation, it is more accurate because it is next to impossible to place an exact date as to when ISIS lost its power over the saints, or exactly when Abu Bakr fled his domain.
To compute when the 3½ days began, we have to be able to determine a starting point, but where in Daniel or Revelation does it give us the information we need to determine the starting point. Daniel only states that it’s the time when he (little horn) shall wear out the saints of the most high. Revelation says it’s the period when the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit will kill them, and their dead bodies shall lie in the streets of that great city. So how do you determine when this period of 3½ days begins?
There are websites one can go to that show when, where, and how many have been killed by the peaceful religion of Islam way back to the turn of this century. The problem is, which event is the one where you begin counting the 3½ years; and how do you determine it? There are some days where the murdered were in the hundreds. There are so many killings that it is next to impossible to pick out one that separates it from another. It is here we see why it is so important to pay attention to every word our Lord speaks. In Revelation 11:8, He gives us what we need to know.
“And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”
This verse tells us the death we need to look at is the first person that was crucified by ISIS. The key phrase is “Where also our Lord was crucified.” It’s telling us we need to look at the bodies that were crucified as our Lord was crucified also. Knowing this, it is not hard at all to discover this date as there are only a few articles covering deaths by crucifixion. They reported the first crucifixions because the world had not seen them for such a long time because Islam went to beheading as their favorite method of execution centuries ago, even though crucifixion has always been an approved method of execution by Islam.
ISIS kicked out or beheaded the news reporters, so there is very little coverage of crucifixions after the first few, even though the numbers of them significantly increased afterward. You can find the oldest reported crucifixion by ISIS in a You-tube video dated March 28th, 2014. You can view this web page and video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tDKp7ZRieY. We want to warn you this is a graphic video that shows the actual crucifixion of a young man; so consider yourself warned! When you play the video, they tell you that the story came out of Raqqa, on March 22nd, 2014. If you add 3½ years which is 1279 days to March 22nd, 2014 at Time and Date.com the answer returned is September 21, 2017. It falls precisely on the first day of the Feast of Trumpets in 2017. If you are familiar with God’s Feast Days, you already know this day represents the date of the Rapture of His saints. You already know that the Day of the Lord follows immediately after the Rapture and that the Feast of Atonement which is the Second Coming of Christ is eight days after that. As you are about to see, Revelation will spell this out for us when we follow the timeline just as our Lord laid it out for us.
Below is a similar view of the screen you will see when you compute the dates revealed by 3½ days on https://www.timeanddate.com. You need to calculate the exact way the Bible presents it. If you add 42 months or three years and six months to 3/22/2014, you will get 9/22/2017 for the result, which is the second day of the Feast of Trumpets. (Isn’t it cool how He covers both days?) But if you follow the instructions below and calculate it just the way the Bible lays it out in days, you will see the answer falls on September 21, 2017, the first day of the Feast of Trumpets. This screenshot is very similar to the one on the website.
So how do we get from here to the Feast of Tabernacles? Just keep on reading Revelation and see where it leads.
Revelation 11:12 (KJV) And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
The great earthquake and the seven thousand men slain also takes place on the opening day of the Feast of Trumpets. Verse 13 states, “the same hour,” which makes it different from the prophetical hour of 15 days. It could even refer to a symbolic earthquake as it states “men’s hearts failing them for fear.” As you know from reading the earlier chapter on the Sign of the Son of Man, the rapture will take an entire 24 hour period or one complete rotation of the Earth.
Revelation 11:14 (KJV) The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
The second woe terminates immediately after the twenty-four hours of the Rapture is over. The second woe is past, and the next one is going to come very quickly; which is very unlike the space of time between the first and second woes.
The first woe was from the time of Mohamed to the time when the beast (Ottoman or Islamic Empire) suffered the wound to the head when they abolished the position of Khalifa of Islam. (Revelation 9:12) That covers a 1300 year segment of history.
The second woe would begin when with the next Islamic cycle, which in this case would be when the beast that was and is not is cast out of the bottomless pit. This verse tells us the second woe is over once the great earthquake hits after the Rapture meaning the second woe ends immediately upon the completion of Tishri 1 which in our example is September 7th, 2021, the first day of the Feast of Trumpets. The original Greek word used for “quickly” is “tachu.” According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary, the meaning of tachu is “without delay” or “suddenly.” Remember: The order and sequence of events will be the same no matter what the Gregorian starting date or year of the actual Feast of Trumpets. The Hebrew starting date of Tishri 1 will always be the same no matter the year. That completes the first day of:
Feast of Trumpets
September 7, 2021 1st Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 1 1st Day “Rapture of the Saints” 1st Day of 2 Day Feast
Revelation 11:15 (KJV) And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.
As you read previously, the Rapture of His saints is followed immediately by the day of the Lord. The sounding of the seventh Trumpet announces “The Day of the Lord.”
However, as was just read in verse 14, the third woe will come quickly, or without delay. But the Lord always warns before he carries out judgment, so while this trumpet immediately sounds following the Rapture of His saints, the actual woe will not begin for another 24 hours.
What happens during these 24 hours is the sealing of the 144,000; 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel. The reason for this can be found in both Revelation chapters 6 and 11. The ending of both these chapters describes the Feast of Trumpets. They both end with the Rapture and the Day of the Lord. When you read the end of chapter 11 you can see that it clearly states this, but in chapter 6 it is somewhat hidden because it describes the Rapture differently;
Revelation 6:14 (KJV) And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together” This is a visual description of the Rapture process revealed in Matthew 24:27-28, & 31. It describes how the rapture event will appear from space (the heaven departed) when His angels gather his saints from the earth’s atmosphere and carry them to the uttermost parts of the heavens. (A picture of this explanation is found in the chapter on Matthew 24 at the end of the commentary on the “Sign of the Son of Man.”)
Revelation chapter 6 ends by saying “the great day of His wrath has come; and who shall be able to stand.” This phrase is saying the Day of the Lord is now here and who is going to be able to survive. We now go to chapter 7, which begins with four angels standing on the four corners of the earth and holding the four winds of the earth so that these winds will not blow upon the earth. It will indeed, in every sense of the word, be the calm before the storm. It is then they seal the 144,000. This ends the second day of:
Feast of Trumpets “Day of the Lord”
September 8th, 2021 2nd Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 2 2nd Day “Day of the Lord” 2nd Day of 2 Day Feast
Now we come to the first verse of Revelation 8. The seventh trumpet sounded the previous day, so it is now, the very next day, the opening of the last seal is without delay.
Revelation 8:1 (KJV) And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
The seventh and last seal is now open, and our Lord tells us there will be silence in heaven for about the space of half an hour after its opening. From the Prophecy Time Chart revealed previously you saw an hour in Bible prophecy is the equivalent of 15 days. That would make half an hour to be 7½ days. However, since this verse dictates about the space of half an hour it is not 7½ days. The about is telling us it is not precisely 7½ days, but rather in the neighborhood of or proximity to 7½ days; according to Webster’s 1913 English Dictionary.
We can verify this is correct by observing the calendar of the appointed times of the Fall Feast Season. We know Tishri 1 & 2 is the Feast of Trumpets and Tishri 10 is the Feast of Atonement. The current date discussed is Sept. 9th of 2021 or Tishri 3. If we add seven days to it we come up with Sept 16th or Tishri 10, the Feast of Atonement; which is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
This half an hour provides us with a short-cut to the Second Coming of Christ, but as stated, we can also get there by accounting for each day by the information provided in Revelation.
FYI: We want to remind you of the fact that the shortest prophecy in the entire Bible is about the space of half an hour used to predict the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. That one of the greatest events in all human history is predicted by the smallest amounts of time further demonstrates the humility and meekness of our Lord and Savior.
We left off on Tishri 2 (Sept 9th, 2021) with the sealing of the 144,000. We are now on Tishri 3, which takes us to Revelation 14. This chapter starts with the Lamb on Mt Sion with the 144,000. It describes the restoring of Israel that the disciples were questioning Him about in Acts 1:6. Those sealed will teleport (for lack of a better word) to Israel. It is also the fulfillment of the prophecy in Hosea 6:1-3
Next, we have the angel flying in the midst of heaven preaching the everlasting Gospel and warning that the hour of judgment has come. The Hour expressed here is the 15 days of the Fall Feast Season. (1 prophetic hour = 15 days)
What comes next is the event our Lord warned us about in Matthew 24:51. It is this event that most of Christendom will not believe or accept but is clearly what Matthew 24:51 describes. The evil servant being cut asunder by his master. As was described to you in chapter 14 of this book, the evil servant is not the wicked unsaved servant, but the saved servant that did not know when His master would return. Why else would there need to be two harvests of the earth after the Rapture has completed?
Revelation 14:14-16 (KJV) 14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
This is followed by the second reaping which is the burning of the tares; which is the destruction of the wicked. We can make this deduction because not only do we see an angel with a sickle, but there is an angel that has power over fire.
Revelation 14:17-20 (KJV) 17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And the wine press was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the wine press, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
NOTE: It is not possible for us to come up with an exact answer as to the number of deaths this is referring to, but it is possible to come up with a reasonable approximation. If you look up the original Greek word used for furlong, it is the Greek word stadion. It is where we get the English word Stadium. Not only does it refer to the places where the Greeks would hold races and Olympic events, but there is also a unit of measurement called a stadion, which is equal to 607 feet.
We are not able to be exact here because of the inability to find the average width of a stadion or the average height of a horse bridle. There were many of these Stadions built and used during the time of the Greek Empire, but they had widths that greatly varied because they built them to accommodate different numbers of contestants. We will use an average width of these stadiums to be 130 feet. And since the height of a horse bridle can be 4 to 6 feet, we will use an average of 5 feet. As for the rest of the other figures required in this calculation, we will use the following. The average adult body uses 11 pints of blood. There are 7.481 gallons to a cubic foot, and there are 8 pints to a gallon. The diagram provided is a step by step calculation that was made to give us a rough idea at the number of deaths incurred when the hour of judgement arrives.
Please keep in mind blood calculations are those of average adults and do not take into account people of different sizes and ages. The people caught in the winepress would be a larger number than what we calculated here. Every inch we are low in the 5ft horse bridle estimation would account for another 57,243,705 deaths. Also, remember this number will not include the 1.8 billion Muslims. The vials and cups which represent the wrath of God are reserved for them. (3.5+1.8 = 5.3 Billion) The separate destruction of the Muslims, the ones that took the “mark of the beast” is spelled out in Revelation14:9-10.
Even though this is a tremendous amount of death, the figure of 5.3 billion is probably low. That is most likely because the figures used for the size of the stadion are probably too small. The current population of the world is around 7.4 billion, so the figure should probably be well over 7 billion.
Isaiah 13:12 (KJV) I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
Revelation 14:9-10 (KJV) 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
We began Tishri 3 with the seventh seal opened and silence in heaven for about the space of half an hour; which is equivalent to seven-plus days. The reason why there is silence in heaven is not that this is a time of preparation for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ as many commentaries surmise, but because those in the heavens will be looking down on the earth in complete awe as the wrath of God is poured out upon the earth. Even though there will be silence in Heaven for these seven days, it will be absolute Hell on Earth during this same seven day period. We are speaking of the seven vials filled with the wrath of God. The 3rd Woe began with the opening of the seventh seal, and now the vials will be released. That ends Tishri 3 (Sept. 9th, 2021) on the Feasts of the Lord calendar.
September 9th, 2021 3rd Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 3 Israel Reunited & Earth Reaped
Revelation 16:2 (KJV) And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and upon them which worshiped his image.
This verse is horrible news for those of the Muslim religion. Islam is the beast spoken of here, and its followers are the ones that bare this mark.
September 10th, 2021 (Vial 1) 4th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 4 Grievous Sore on those with the mark of the beast
Revelation 16:3 (KJV) And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
September 11th, 2021 (Vial 2) 5th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 5 Vial poured out upon the sea.
Revelation 16:4-6 (KJV) 4And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus. 6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
September 12th, 2021 (Vial 3) 6th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 6 Vial poured out upon the sea.
Revelation 16:8-9 (KJV) 8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
September 13th, 2021 (Vial 4) 7th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 7 Men scorched with fire
Revelation 16:10-11 (KJV) 10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, 11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
September 14th, 2021 (Vial 5) 8th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 8 Seat of the beast blacked out
Revelation 16:12-16 (KJV) 12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. 16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Note that we are given a final warning before the Second Coming of Christ. Because of the “about the space of half an hour” (7½ day) prophecy, it is a genuine possibility that there will be a repeat of the “Sign of the Son of Man” introduced to you in chapter 14 of this book. After all, it is the Sign of the Son of Man and the sign of His coming!
September 15th, 2021 (Vial 6) 9th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 9 Euphrates River dried up, Warning of Second Coming
Revelation 16:17 (KJV) 17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
The seventh angel pouring out his vial into the air is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. It is what one is supposed to deduct from the great voice out of the temple of heaven saying, “It is done.” That is because our Heavenly Father knows that all He asks of His son is as good as done because of Jesus Christ always without fail, is doing the will of His Father.
Feast of Atonement
September 16th, 2021 (Vial 7) 10th Day Fall Feast Season
Tishri 10 Second Coming of Jesus Christ
That takes us through the first ten days of the Fall Feast Season; leaving us five days with the last day being the Feast of Tabernacles. Since the last day is the actual Feast of Tabernacles, it means that Christ will have defeated all enemies and His people are dwelling safely in His presence on that day. That means that during the next four days, His enemies are in for some big surprises, and they are not going to be of the pleasant variety. A verse that gives credence to this is Revelation 16:19. This verse is found right after the seventh vile is poured into the air which as we just told you is the Second Coming of Christ with His armies. In verse 18 there is a great earthquake, the likes of which the world has never seen before. It is then that we read:
Revelation 16:19 (KJV) And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nation’s fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
This verse tells us that it is after this great earthquake that God is going to remember Babylon. By telling us this is when He is going to remember Babylon, He is telling us this is when He is going to take out His wrath upon Babylon. It is when He will serve her the cup filled with the fierceness of His wrath. That means this cup has to be different from the vials poured out previously.
According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary, a vial is a broad, shallow cup. Vine’s Expository Dictionary gives a little more clarity on its use by saying: “the word is suggestive of rapidity in the emptying of the contents.” That, in turn, provides more validity to the idea that the vials are all poured out during seven days of the Fall Feasts of the Lord and not for 3½ years of great tribulation.
A cup is the same cup you think of when you think of coffee.
Notice when using a cup is used in the figurative it speaks of lot or fate. That is precisely its meaning in Revelation 18:6, which tells of the fate in store for all those that have taken the mark of the beast. We discussed and exposed this mark in chapter 5, where we said the oldest Bible manuscripts show this to be the Muslim Bismillah which is the phrase “in the name of Allah.” It is the worshipers of Allah that have been persecuting and killing God’s witnesses to the point of extinction in the area that was once the King of Babylon’s domain.
Revelation 18:6 (KJV) Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
To double unto her double would account for four days if the reward for her works is the amount of time judgment is carried out on them. If so the equation would be 2 x 1 x 2 = 4.
These 4 days will probably be the time He fights against and defeats the foes listed in the book of Isaiah. These are found throughout chapters 13-23 and begin with the phrase “The burden of”

How this prophecy is revealed should make any Muslim that reads and understands it, go out and purchase a copy of the Bible and start reading it. Muslims believe that if they touch a Bible, they will go to Hell. However, since this prophecy along with all the others that fill the pages of this book, has been fulfilled precisely as predicted; it should convince anyone of their future destination if they don’t read and respond to what’s written in the Word of the true God.
This prophecy uses an important Islamic event recognized as the start of the modern Muslim era, which is when Mohamed left Mecca and journeyed to Medina (called the Hijra), on Sept 20th 622 A.D. It was then Mohamed began construction on the first Moslem Mosque in the city of Quba. The ending date of this prophecy is the Feast of Tabernacles on October 5th, 2017. This is most likely the day that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi fled his domain ending the 1395 years and 15 days the Muslims were prepared to kill a third of all men. The first Feast of Tabernacles after Christ’s return is significant because it is the day after Christ has been victorious over all His foes and His people are dwelling safely in His presence.
The first celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles under the first covenant after God had delivered His people from the slavery of Egypt and the pursuit of the Egyptian Army. The commemorative purpose behind it and the reason His people were commanded to celebrate it forever is to remind them of their time wondering in the desert when they lived in booths in the safety of His presence.
Since Revelation 9:20 refers to Islam as a plague, so it is only fitting that the conquering of this plaque on mankind results in the celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. The passage in scripture that reveals this prophecy is Revelation 9:13-14. We will skip most of the dialog as you may review it in chapter 8 of this book.
Revelation 9:13-14 (KJV) 13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, 14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
The voice from the altar tells the sixth angel to loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. You know from chapter 9 of this book that the four angels spoken of here are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse of Revelation 6. Here is a list of them along with some information about each one. The underlined bold dates are the dates in which the first four seals were opened:
- 1st Angel – White Horse, Mohamed – founder of Islam, and Biblical False Prophet. Made historic trip from Mecca to Medina on Sept 20, 622 AD called the Hijra which marks the beginning of the Modern Muslim Era. (Verified on Islamic Websites)
- 2nd Angel – Red Horse, Abu Bakr – 1st Caliph of Islam – June 8, 632 to August 22, 634
- 3rd Angel – Black Horse, Umar ibn al-Khattab – 2nd Caliph – August 23, 634 to November 3, 644
- 4th Angel – Pale Horse, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi- Last Caliph of Islam and current head of ISIS. – June 29, 2014, to October 5, 2017, the date he no longer has power over the saints. He is the Biblical Man of Sin, Son of Perdition, Lawless One, King of Babylon, the Assyrian and Satan in the Flesh. There will be no more Muslim Khalifahs because the time for which Islam was prepared ended on October 5, 2017 the Feast of Tabernacles.
How can we know that these Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and these four angels loosed from the great river Euphrates are the same? How can we presume to know the last day that the Man of Sin, Son of Perdition, and King of Babylon will have power over the saints? We know because of what our Lord tells us in the next verse. We know because the date calculation takes us from the beginning of the modern Muslim era to the last day for which these four angels were prepared. This date takes us from the first day of the modern Islamic era to the time of the Feast of Tabernacles in 2017.
Revelation 9:15 (KJV) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
These four angels are prepared for a precise amount of time and a very specific task. The specific task is to kill one-third of all men. That is the percentage of men God tells us these four angels will be responsible for killing. It is the same percentage given to all the havoc described in the prophecies of Revelation 8. The time values revealed here are an hour = 15 days; a day = 1000 years; a month = 30 years; a year = 365 years. Total time = 1395 years, 15 days.
If what you have read is correct and Islam is the antichrist of end times Bible prophecy, we should be able to make sense of this. If these four angels were prepared for an hour, a day, a month, and a year, to slay the third part of men, then there has to be a starting date. Believe it or not, Islam does have a starting date, and there is a tabernacle (mosque) associated with it, so it does fit into the narrative quite well. Muslims believe that Islam has always existed. They are right in the sense that Satan has always deceived man into worshiping false gods, but in the sense of there being a Quran and a false god specifically named Allah; we’re looking at a little more than 1400 years.
Mohamed had a hard time getting followers for His new cult. We won’t go into a lot of specifics here, but needless to say, it got to the point where people of Mecca wanted Mohamed dead. He got word of it, so he and his small band of followers fled Mecca. He escaped to safety at Quba on September 20th 622 A.D. He waited there a few days for others that escaped Mecca to join up with him. On September 24th they continued the short distance to Medina.
Of course the first thing Mohamed wanted to do was build a mosque to worship Allah. In front of the house where he was staying in Quba, there was a vacant lot that belonged to two orphans. Mohamed summoned them and their guardians and informed them that he wanted to buy that land. They responded by telling Mohamed that they would be happy to make that land a gift, but he refused to accept it as a gift and insisted on paying a fair price. The payment was accepted and the building of the Mosque began immediately. The story behind this first Mosque should sound familiar to Christians as this story is quite similar to one that took place 1500 years previously and recorded in II Samuel 24.
When King David sinned by forcing Joab to number Israel and God sent three days pestilence in which 70,000 people died. The destroying angel stopped at the threshing floor of Araunah. The prophet Gad then went to David and told him to build an altar unto the LORD at the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. When David offered to buy the threshing floor, Araunah offered the threshing floor as well as the sacrificial oxen for the altar as a gift. David refused by saying he would not offer anything to the Lord that was of no cost to him. This threshing floor was located on Mt. Moriah, also known as the Mount of the Congregation; the very same place they built Solomon’s Temple and the Second Temple. It is also the very same place where the Muslim “Dome of the Rock” currently sits.
This starting date of September 20th 622 A.D. is tied to the Hijra (migration) of Mohamed from Mecca to Medina. It was when Mohamed reached safety at Quba. It is the start of the modern-day Islamic era. By using September 20th 622 A.D. as our starting date and adding 1395 years and 15 days to it, our answer falls on October 5th, 2017, the Feast of Tabernacles.
Some Bible scholars claim that because of changes in the calendars over the years, it is impossible to calculate dates over long lengths of time. The switch from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar did not happen all at once, and there was 11 days difference between the two calendars. It took almost 350 years before the entire world had switched to the Gregorian calendar first introduced in 1582.
This argument does not hold water for a couple of reasons. First, all of the long term calculations in the Word of God are given in years and not days. The wording is in days, but as you very well know, the days must be converted into years before you can calculate the solution of the prophecy. When adding and subtracting years, it is not necessary to deal with the number of days. Secondly, now through the use of computers it is possible and quite easy to add, subtract, discover and convert dates in calendars of many of Earth’s civilizations dating back millenniums.
You have been introduced to the Feasts of the Lord as revealed in the book of Revelation. You have seen how the 3½ days of Revelation as well as the “time, times and the dividing of time” of Daniel 7 reveal the domain and rule of the little horn, the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pit. We showed you how the 3½ days of Revelation 11:8-9 reveal the Feast of Trumpets of the year 2017.
Next it was demonstrated how Revelation itself reveals the next feast, the Feast of Atonement, by merely following the days as they have been laid out, or by using the “about the space of half an hour prophecy.”
Finally, you just read how by interpreting the four angels that are bound in the great river Euphrates to be the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse of Revelation 6; the prophecy of an hour, a day, a month, and a year will take you from the start of the modern Muslim era and bring you to the Feast of Tabernacles 2017.
Don’t forget the REAL 7 times of Daniel 4 also reveals a prophecy with and ending date that falls in the year 2017. This prophecy started on October 12, 539 B.C. with the fall of Babylon. By multiplying 7 x 365 days, we get 2,555 days, which equals 2,555 years in Bible prophecy. Then we need to add one year when going from B.C. to A.D. giving us 2,556 years. When doing the final math equation is: -539 + 2555 + 1 = 2017.
That gives us three Bible Prophecies that end in the year 2017! An unbeliever would pass this off as mere coincidence, just a freak occurrence. But we know there is no such thing because the Lord is in complete control and all of Bible prophecy bears this out. However, what is our Lord trying to tell us by this? It should be rather evident that 2017 holds some special significance. These three prophecies say:
- Daniel 4 tells us it’s the year the 3rd and the last King of Babylon will lose his throne.
- It’s the year the Man of Sin stopped crucifying God’s witnesses according to the 3½ day prophecy of Revelation 11.
- It’s the end of the period Islam was prepared to kill the third part of all men in Revelation 9.
Could this be signaling the midway point of the last seven years? Or could this be marking the point of no return as far as the coming judgment of the Earth during the Fall Feasts of the Lord? Or is it something else?
Calendar of the 2021 Fall Feasts of the Lord
The following illustration will diagram the Fall Feasts of the Lord as they have just been laid out to you from the Book of Revelation. Again, this is diagrammed using the year 2021 because this should be the year as revealed in Bible prophecy, but even if this interpretation were to be off by a year, everything you just read happens in the same time, way and fashion no matter what the year is on the Hebrew calendar. The calendar displays them the way He asked His chosen people to commemorate these Feasts of the Lord 3500 years ago.
It is essential that you know the beginning date of the Feast of Trumpets because this is the night the rapture will occur.
This calendar shows the Feast of Trumpets begins on September 7, 2021. However, the Jewish day begins at sundown, which means September 7th (Tishri 1) begins when the sun goes down on September 6th, which is the actual night of the “New Moon” in the U.S. This will also be true no matter what year you may be considering. The “New Moon” will always be on the evening before the date of the Feast of Trumpets as shown on the western calendar. In the year 2021, the New Moon will occur on September 6th at 7:52 P.M. in the Central Time Zone. (Chicago, Dallas)
Revelation 3:10 (KJV) Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
The word temptation used in this verse means proving or adversity according to Strong’s Greek Dictionary. This verse is speaking about the Fall Feasts as established by the end of the verse, which states, “to try them that dwell upon the earth.” To try is to put one under trial which describes what is happening during the Fall Feasts of the Lord.
Also, keep in mind that in Biblical prophecy, it’s one day = one year. Now go back and read Matthew 24:36-51 and insert year where it says day and insert Fall Feast Days where it says an hour. That should explain why he said the evil servant is “not even aware of the hour.” That is so right as the Christian of today has no clue when it comes to the Feasts of the Lord. By God’s Grace and Mercy, Praise the Lord, there is at least one more that does! Please don’t let it end there. For now is the time…………………..
