It's amazing how a book, the Holy Bible, written around 2000 years
ago and earlier, can so accurately describe the world we are living in today, as well as some of the things that are
forecast in the news as coming up in the future. This is a site you can use to look up the scriptures in this post:
There is a good possibility, not a certainty, that the
Rapture could occur during the days of Awe this year but also including Sukkot in October, the best possibility
being during Rosh Hashanah. Whether it happens this year or not, it certainly will occur in the near future.
Evangelist Perry Stone believes that the Rapture will occur during Rosh Hashanah, year unknown, because it's the Feast of
Trumpets, and also because of three Jewish themes involved with Rosh Hashanah, the resurrection of the righteous, the
Kingship of the Lord, and the marriage of the King, all these themes are also involved in the Rapture of the church.
It does make sense, but Yom Kippur, having to do with atonement, forgiveness, and purification, and Sukkot, representing living
in temporary dwelling places while moving toward the Promised Land also seem to be good candidates. These are moeds
(an appointment, i.e. a fixed time or season; specifically, a festival), and many bible prophecy teachers teach the Rapture
will happen on a moed, or Jewish festival day. How people refuse to believe in God, when we see in the news every day
things occuring that were prophesied in a book around 2000 years ago and earlier, is beyond belief to me.
These are the reasons I believe the Rapture could possibly be during Rosh Hashanah this year:
1. The Bible tells us Jesus will
return to take us home (the Rapture, not the Second Coming when he comes to stay and reign).
1 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 NKJV 15 For this we say to you
by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those
who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend
from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And
thus we shall always be with the Lord.
2. Prophecy fullfilled.
Jews came home. Isaiah, Jeremiah, and
Ezekiel all speak of the Jewish return to the land.
a nation again on May 14, 1948, a nation was (re)born in a day. Isaiah 66:7-8
June 7, 1967 Israel regained control of Jerusalem. Luke 21:24
Israel has developed methods to grow crops in the dessert. Isaiah 35:1
The Hebrew language has been revived. Zephaniah
Israel is being threatened to be cut off as a nation.
Warning: Nations turning 'against Israel'
On December 23, (2016) the United Nations Security
Council passed Resolution 2334 — which criticizes Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories, and
calls for all parties to prevent incitement and terrorism — by a 14–0 vote, with the United States
the lone abstention. https://arcdigital.media/the-nations-united-against-israel-d3fa8eda209
3. We're living in the days that were prophecied about
in the old and new testaments.
and Knowledge surges - Daniel 12:4
ungrateful, unholy, self loving people - 2 Timothy 3
earthquakes, pestilences, terror, etc. - Luke 21:10-17
diminishing of the gospel message - 2 Timothy 4:3
*Skeptics and scoffers -
2 Peter 3:3-4
4. A few prophetic events in the works.
nations of the Exekiel 38 and 39 Battle of Gog and Magog (which has not happened in history yet) are forming alliances.

society and the "Mark of the Beast" Revelation
13:15-17; Revelation 14:9-11; Revelation 15:2
If you are here after the Rapture don't worship the
beast (Antichrist) or take his mark or there is no more hope of eternal life, but according to Revelation 15:2
there is for those who are victorious over the beast, his image, his name, and his mark.
*Jews believe the Messiah is coming soon.
Of course they don't believe the Messiah they are waiting for is Jesus,
but Christians believe he is the Messiah and He's coming again, first in the Rapture, and second to defeat the enemies of
Israel and to rule and reign in Jerusalem.

5. Prophecies of Rabbai Judah
I first heard about Rabbai Judah Ben Samuel on YouTube
from a sermon by Pastor John Hagee. He lived in the end of the 12th to the beginning of the 13th century.
He predicted the Ottoman Turks would rule over Jerusalem for 8 jubilees (a jubilee is 50 years), they took control in 1517
and ruled till 1917, eight jubilees, he predicted it 300 years before it happened; he then predicted that Jerusalem would
become a no man's land for one jubilee, "in 1917, the Ottoman Turks were conquered by the British. The League of Nations
conferred the Mandate for the Holy Land and Jerusalem to the British. Thus, from 1917, under international law, Jerusalem
was no-man’s land."; he predicted that in the 9th jubilee the Jewish nation would regain control of Jerusalem,
in 1967-which would signal the beginning of the Messianic end-times, during the 6 day war the Jews regained control of Jerusalem,
and have possesion to this day. We are now at the end of the 10th Jubilee, 2017, 50 years after the Jews regained Jerusalem.
The bible declares that the generation that saw that happen would not pass away till all the end-time prophecies are
fulfilled. Matthew 24:34 and whole chapter for context.
6. All those
Luke 21:11 And great earthquakes
shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and
in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Blood moons, solar eclipses, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc., and on September 23, 2017 an alignment of the
sun, moon, planets and stars which seems to match Revelation 12:1,2.
7. The International Day of Peace
In 1981 the General Assembly of the ungodly, Israel hating, United Nations, declared September 21
The International Day of Peace, this year it happens to fall during Rosh Hashanah. It wouldn't surprise me if Jesus
doesn't come to take Christians out of here, leaving the UN members scratching their heads about what happened.
The Seven Year Tribulation following the Rapture is mainly to give Jews
the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their true Messiah, but Gentiles can also accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and
Savior, but there will be many terrifying things that will happen. It would be better to accept Him now and not be here
