The Fall Feasts are honored and celebrated as “dress rehearsals” so our hearts are in sync with the Lord’s redemption plan.  So what happens when the Feast of Trumpets goes “live” after the sound of the trumpet?

“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 (1 Thes. 4:16).

One of the most remarkable signs that will happen when this Feast is fulfilled is that the dead in Christ will rise from the grave.  Most Christians assume ALL those who are believers that have died will rise at this resurrection. But after studying scriptures, I see a different pattern to examine as we define the purpose of the two resurrections the Bible refers to:

“Blessed and holy is he who has a part in the FIRST resurrection.  Over such the SECOND death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with Him a thousand years” (Rev. 20:6).

The fact that the scripture indicates there is a first resurrection mandates that there is a second. God has a trumpet call for two occasions, and it is clear from Rev. 20 that the FIRST is for those who will reign with Him during the Millennium.

Let’s go back in the Bible and find the purpose of the blowing of the silver trumpets and see how it ties into these two resurrections.  In Numbers 10, God instructed Moses to make two trumpets from hammered silver: 

“Make two silver trumpets for yourself; you shall make them of hammered work; you shall use them for calling the congregation and for directing the movement of the camps.  When they blow both of these, all the congregation shall gather before you at the door of the tabernacle of meeting.  But if they blow only one, then the leaders, the heads of the divisions of Israel, shall gather to you”(Numbers 10:2-4).

Notice that when the Lord said to blow ONE trumpet, He was calling forth the HEADS (those chosen for rulership) to the door of the tabernacle of meeting. But when the two trumpets were blown, it was to gather ALL.

1 Cor. 15:51,52 shares scriptures that reveal some details of Christ’s return, and the unfolding events after the trumpet is sounded:

“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

Notice the scripture above doesn’t say trumpets.  This is because the purpose of this first resurrection is to call forth those who have been chosen as “HEADS” to reign with Christ in the Millennium.   This is also confirmed in 1 Thes. 4:16.  Both scripture references say one trumpet is blown when the dead in Christ rise.  Therefore, all those who are dead in Christ won’t arise in this first resurrection.  Those who remain dead will rise and get their glorified bodies in the second resurrection.

The bible makes it clear that God has set aside a “remnant” of 144,000 who are chosen to reign with Him in the Millennium.  This number is not actual, but symbolic, and makes it clear that ALL aren’t chosen to reign with Him.

“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads”(Rev. 14:1).

In John 5:28,29, Jesus did however talk about a general resurrection in which ALL who were dead, both good and evildoers, will be raised at the same time and hear His voice – NOT just those who are “dead in Christ” as the previous scriptures indicated.  

“Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which ALL who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth-those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation”(John 5:28,29).

The above scripture is a picture of the SECOND resurrection that includes both believers and unbelievers.

Looking at all these scriptures, it is safe to say that the FIRST resurrection is NOT the time for the resurrection of salvation. The first resurrection marks the time Jesus is coming back, with the 144,000, to rule over the nations and to secure and establish His governmental authority in the earth.  

The issue of salvation is the purpose of the SECOND resurrection, which is explained in Rev. 20:

“And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened.  And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.  And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books (The law).  

And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them.  And they were judged, each one according to his works.  

Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.  This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire” (Rev. 20:12-15).

In taking all these scriptures into account, we can conclude that the sole purpose of the FIRST is to call forth those believers who are “rewarded” with the responsibility to reign with Christ for 1,000 years (Gen. 14:18-20; Heb. 7; Rev. 20:6).

When talking to the disciples about the rewards of leaving all to follow Him, Jesus said to the disciples that they would be repaid at the “resurrection of the just.” We can further conclude that Christ is referring to the FIRST resurrection since there is no reference of the second, and the “just” can ONLY signify believers since no one outside of faith in Christ alone are “just” (Rom. 5:1).

“And you (disciples who gave ALL) will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just (Luke 14:14).

The reward given at the FIRST resurrection that Christ was referring to doesn’t equate to be a more “powerful or important position” in the body of Christ. That kind of thinking is what our world thinks, so it’s hard to grasp that this doesn’t mean a person chosen that is “special” or “better than” other Christians.

On the contrary, these who are rewarded are “bondservants of Christ” like our example of the Apostles Paul and Peter, who laid their lives down to serve Christ (Rom. 1:1). 

“For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake” (2Cor. 4:5).

In humility of heart, these bondservants followed His voice out of obedience to serve and faithfully steward the talents God had given them. “Bondservants” of Christ have allowed the sanctification process to crucify their flesh so that they think and act like Christ. Christ can then entrust them with His authority of rulership, which is His reward:

“For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works” (Matt. 16:27).

In the letters to the 7 Churches in the Book of Revelation, God first praises and acknowledges each Church for the things they were doing well. But He goes on to chastise each Church in the areas they were in error or had veered off course. In every letter the Lord addresses, He states that those who had an ear to hear would be rewarded when He returned for following His instruction.  These would be known as His “Overcomers;” the ones who embraced the sanctification process. Here is a list of rewards for those who OVERCOME:

  1. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  To him who overcomes,I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God”(Rev. 2:7).
  2. “He who overcomesshall not be hurt by the second death” (Rev. 20:2:11).
  3. “He who overcomes Iwill give some of the hidden manna to eat.  And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it”(Rev. 2:17).
  4. “And he who overcomes,and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations- He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’- as I also have received from My Father; and I will give him the morning star”(Rev. 2:26-28).
  5. “He who overcomesshall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels”(Rev. 3:5).
  6. “He who overcomes,I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more.  I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the NEW Jerusalem which comes down out of heaven from My God.  And I will write on him My new name”(Rev. 3:12).
  7. “To him who overcomes,I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne”(Rev. 3:21).

If you read the entire chapters of Rev. 2 and 3, the Lord makes a distinction between those Christians who will overcome, and those who don’t repent but continue following their own ways.  It is important to emphasize that becoming an “overcomer” has nothing to do with salvation, for the letters were addressed to ALL who were saved by grace.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast (Eph. 2:8,9).

But Christ does lay out the rewards for those who overcome through this sanctification process.  They enter into the FIRST resurrection, while the others continue on with the sanctification process until the SECOND resurrection.

In the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25:14-30, Jesus shares how rewards, concerning the kingdom of heaven, have to do with rulership. The man traveling to a far country in this parable is symbolic of Jesus.  He gives to each servant (Christians) talents according to their ability to steward them until He comes back.  What does He say to the servant who gained from the talents given:

“Well done good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things; I will make you RULER over many things.  Enter into the joy of the Lord” (Matt. 25:21).

Rulership is a product of faith, obedience, and the sacrifice of self. No one bi-passes this sanctification process.   Even Christ couldn’t bi-pass the process that led Him to the cross.  But there are a “firstfruits” remnant whose hearts will be ready first at the time of Christ’s return.

Think about the difference between King Saul and King David.  Both kings served the Lord.  Both weren’t perfect leaders, nor perfectly obeyed the Lord’s commandments.  But Saul never fully surrendered his heart to the Lord. Instead, he was led more by his own ambitions, needs, and pride. David however was on his knees asking for the Lord’s help. David was one in whom God could entrust with His anointing of rulership.

Kingships “rewards” are a product of our choices whether we lean into God’s voice as Moses did, in obedience to His commandments, or run away and do our own thing.  Those who have learned obedience by the things they suffer will find their reward as Christ did (Heb. 5:8).

“And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with Me, to give to every man according to his work” (Rev. 22:12).



“Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, At the full moon, on our solemn feast day”(Psalm 81:3).

So what is the significance of the Feast of Trumpets? The literal Hebrew translation is “a memorial of blasts.” In Hebrew, this Feast is called “Yom Teruah.”  Yom means day, but Teruah doesn’t mean trumpets.  It means a shout or blast of war, alarm or joy. So literally translated, this is a Feast that is a “Day of Blasting or Shouting.”

The Feast of Trumpets is the ONLY Feast that is celebrated on Firstfruits; tying it’s meaning with “firsts” and making this day the “grand daddy” of all Firstfruits celebrations. It is believed by biblical historians that Adam was born on this day, along with Jesus as well when He was born of the Virgin Mary.  It has also been known as the “Anniversary of Creation.”

The Feast of Trumpets is celebrated in the Hebrew month of Tishri. Tishrei was originally recognized as the first month of the calendar the Hebrews followed due to these epic beginnings I just described.

However, in God’s master plan for redemption, He needed to create a separate, but intimate calendar with a people He was in covenant with so that they could become His SIGN to the nations that He was the one true God. 

This special covenant calendar was purposed to establish a pattern, purpose, timing, and union with God that set the Israelites apart from all other nations. But it also was a witness of the SIGN of the “Coming One” (Jesus), as God would use the calendar to fulfill His prophetic promises.

The Hebrew Covenant Calendar was created when God spoke to Moses and Aaron in Ex. 12:2:

“This month (Nisan) shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first of the year to you” (Ex. 12:2). God followed this commandment with His the instructions for Passover.  Afterwards, He declared, “So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations.  You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance”(Ex. 12:14).

Later on when the children of Israel arrived at Mt. Sinai, God gave instruction for all 7 Feasts after He sealed His Covenant with them and set them apart from all the other nations. The month of Tishri was now changed to be the seventh month in the Hebrew calendar, and the first day of the harvest (blessed) season and the month in which all the Fall Feasts were celebrated.

“Therefore all the men of Israel assembled with King Solomon at the feast in the month of Ethanim (Tishrei), which is the seventh month” (1 Kings 8:2).

There is much confusion today since the Hebrew Covenant calendar starts in the Spring, yet the Jewish civil year begins in fall on the first day of Tishri. Jews incorporate celebrating the first day of Tishri as Rosh Hashanah; translated as “the ‘head/first’ of the year,” and that is what most of our world understands this celebration to be; the Jewish New Year.  But if God said that Nisan was to be the first of the year, why are the two calendars still recognized by the Jews?

To find the answers as to why this is, we can go back to biblical history when the twelve tribes of Israel were split into two kingdoms after King Solomon’s reign (1 Kings 11).  Subsequently, the Israelites were divided into the Southern Kingdom, also known as the House of Judah; and Northern Kingdom, also known as the House of Israel (1 Kings 11). The House of Judah consisted of the two tribes, one being the tribe of Judah where the Jews originated.

After the Babylonian captivity, the House of Judah picked up the Jewish Civil year again in the first and second century because of the writings that were compiled in what is known as the “Mishnah.” Sometime between the finality of the writing of the Torah by Ezra, and the creation and codification of the Mishnah, the autumn New Year gained acceptance, and transformed into a major celebration, and the Nisan New Year was left as a marker of the months and festivals in the calendar year.

The Northern Kingdom (House of Israel), made up of the remaining ten tribes, originally kept the Ecclesiastical (Priest) year that God commanded them to follow in Ex. 12 as well…. Somewhat.  But when the House of Israel was captured by the Assyrians and scattered all over the nations, they lost their heritage, name, and blueprint of Covenant, including following the Hebrew Covenant Calendar.  They weren’t even around when the Mishnah was created and it’s writings executed as ” Jewish tradition.”

Technically, both calendars are correct, because both calendars existed.  But God commanded Moses to follow His new calendar in Exodus 12 because this new calendar was going to be used as HIS SIGN of the Redeemer, and for those wanting to recognize, honor, and be a part of the redemption process that God determined, honoring the Hebrew Covenant Calendar should have, and continue to, trump any calendar, including the Gregorian calendar our world revolves around today.

The school calendar versus Gregorian calendar is a parallel example of two calendars followed during the same time, but the Gregorian begins on January 1st, while the school calendar starts in September.  The Gregorian calendar is for all the world to follow, while the school calendar is for a specified people who are signed up for education, which is their high priority.

Because the Jews returned to including the Jewish Civil calendar into their Feast celebrations, it brought about confusion and has diminished the significance of the Hebrew Covenant Calendar that was “set apart” from the world.   Perhaps this is one reason why the Jews couldn’t see and accept Christ as the Savior when He began His ministry, because the adoption of honoring the two calendars caused them to look for a conquering king FIRST rather a sacrificial lamb.

God created the Covenant Calendar in Ex. 12 to “set apart” His Covenant promises of how Christ would become our High Priest FIRST, and our King of kings second when He returned to the earth.

“You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; For You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth” (Rev. 4:9,10).

So let’s now get back to the simplicity of the purpose of the Feast of Trumpets, which is to awaken us with a blast of the trumpet.  What are we awaking to?

The trumpet has many significant meanings in the Bible.  

The trumpet was blown to signal war against the adversary (Josh. 6:5; Jer. 51:27; 1 Cor. 14:8) 

“When you go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the Lord your God, and you will be saved from your enemies (Numbers 10:9).

It was also used to announce the king (2 Kings 9:13; 11:14).

“Then Zadok the priest took a horn of oil from the tabernacle and anointed Solomon.  And they blew the horn, and all the people said, “Long live King Solomon!” (1 Kings 1:39).

The trumpet was the sound to wake up the Church (Rev. 1:10).

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet.”

All of these reasons (and there are many more) of why the trumpet is used are all united together on the Feast of Trumpets. This “dress rehearsal” shares it’s purpose of becoming the signal (/sign/proclamation/alarm/shout) to awaken us, to announce war against the adversary, to announce the return of the King, and to summon God’s people who are IN covenant with Him.  And when this Feast goes “LIVE,” it will mark the beginning of the Millennium.




Our next firstfruits is September 29th, celebrating the seventh month of the Hebrew covenant Calendar known as Tishrei.  This Firstfruits marks the beginning of the fall harvest season as well as the Fall Feasts.

Tishrei is a month of joyful celebration!  This month is associated with the tribe of Ephraim, who’s name means “fruitful” or “multiply.”  Ephraim was Joseph’s son who Jacob grafted into the family inheritance.  Because Joseph’s trials brought him through a difficult pathway, yet produced many blessings (becoming governor of Egypt, reunited with his family, and saving them from the famine), Joseph named his son Ephraim.

“For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction” (Gen. 42:52). 

God’s heart and purpose in creating man is known in Gen. 1:28, which bears witness to Ephraim’s name:

“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

It is interesting that this declaration was given first to Adam, and it continues to bear fruit thousands of years later.  Jewish historians and Rabbi’s declare that the first of Tishrei is said to be the anniversary of creation and the birthday of Adam.  It is also believed by biblical scholars that Jesus was born this month as well.  Creation, the “Adamic” race, and JESUS continue to be fruitful and multiply.

Joshua was from the tribe of Ephraim, and was one of the greatest military leaders of the bible.  He conquered ALL the kings in the Promised Land, and under his leadership, the children of Israel were fruitful and blessed.

Joshua encourages us even today as believers about how to be fruitful as he speaks to the Israelites to obey the Lord:

 Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:14,15).

Tishrei Firstfruits is unique as it is also intersects with the Feast called the “Feast of Trumpets.”  The shofar is first blown to acknowledge the new moon and signaling the time to give the Lord a Firstfruits offering.  Firstfruits reminds us of Jehovah Jireh – the Lord who Provides,  remembering the story of how God provided a ram to sacrifice on the altar instead of Abraham’s son, Isaac:

“Then Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns.  So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.  And Abraham called the name of the place, ‘The-Lord-Will-Provide,’ as it is said to this day, “In the Moutn of the Lord it shall be provided” (Gen. 22:13,14).

The trumpet is blown next to signify the “Feast of Trumpets,” which is also known as “Day of Awakening blasts.”  This trumpet blast is a rehearsal to the body of Christ to awaken and to be ready, for the King of kings is coming.  It also signifies as a reminder that one day, when Christ returns, the Millennium will begin with the sound of the trumpet, and the transformation of the remnant to reign with Christ will commence.

” Behold, I tell you a mystery:  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed – in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Cor. 15:51,52).

I asked my friend Athena, to paint a picture of the heart of this month.  This is what she said about the inspiration of her painting:


“This watercolor painting was truly a “labor” of love.  A JOY of co-creating with Him in surrender and trust. It represents a birthing of joy in our souls as we blindly walk in obedience to our Father’s call to come with Him to the places unknown . . . to the abundant places He prepared for us before the foundations of the world. We follow His patterns holding onto the hope we have only in Him truly internalizing that “The Joy of The Lord is Our Strength”.

We dance! We sing! We celebrate what has been, what is and what will be in His will.  We blindly walk in faith worshiping our Lord for “the joy that is set before us”. (Hebrews 12:2) 

We are “flourishing” in the Father’s hands no matter what we walk through with Him.  We rejoice and celebrate in the hope that He is doing immeasurably more than all we ask think or imagine for His Glory.

 As you reflect on this painting entitled “Joy Immeasurable”, let the these scriptures sink deep in your soul and spirit bouncing up through your heart with hands lifted high in praise and gratefulness to our Heavenly Father . . . King of all creation:

“O my strength, I sing with joy your praises. O my stronghold, I sing with joy your song! O my Savior, I sing with joy the lyrics of your faithful love for me!” (Psalms‬ ‭59:17‬ ‭TPT‬‬)

“God’s glory is all around me! His wrap-around presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life-giving strength” (Psalm 62:7 TPT).

“But as for me, your strength shall be my song of joy. At each and every sunrise, my lyrics of your love will fill the air! For you have been my glory-fortress, a stronghold in my day of distress.” (Psalms‬ ‭59:16‬ ‭TPT‬‬)”

I love how Athena captured the heart of this month: JOY AND CELEBRATION! Praying you take time to Feast with Him!



There are three Fall Feasts that are celebrated in the seventh month of the Hebrew Covenant Calendar known as Tishrei, which begin this year on the eve of September 29th.  They are: Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles.

Jesus fulfilled the Spring Feasts when he became our “sacrificial lamb,” died and rose 3 days later, and presented Himself as the “firstfruits” offering to God.  Fifty days later, He sent the Holy Spirit so that His redemption for mankind would multiply.  Today, we continue to honor these Feasts days to remember what Jesus did on the cross.

The Fall Feasts are to be celebrated not as remembrances to honor what Christ did, but as “dress rehearsals” until Jesus returns because they have yet to be fulfilled. Since these Feasts are a prophetic blueprint of God’s redemption plan, God instructs us to honor these divine appointments and to understand their meaning so our hearts are ready for His return.

Simply defined, the Feast of Trumpets sounds the alarm that the harvest season has begun, and an awakening blast reminds us to prepare for the coming King.   Ten days later, the Day of Atonement is celebrated, anticipating the day of decision when the body of Christ is judged or rewarded to enter into the promises of Jubilee. Lastly, the Feast of Tabernacles is a joyful corporate gathering to celebrate the desired union with our Lord eternally in our glorified bodies.

We look forward to the time when these Fall Feasts go live as it will mark the beginning of the Millennium.  Jesus will then return to establish His Dominion (Kingdom) here on the earth as it is in heaven (Matt 6:6-9).  During His 1,000-year reign, Christ will utilize His “Firstfruits” remnant to establish His righteousness in the earth (Rev.5:9,10). 

Many people believe the Feasts were established as a commandment for the Israelites in the Old Testament, prior to Christ’s death and resurrection.  But the scriptures indicate that God will use the “Feasts of Tabernacles” as a SIGN to distinguish those nations in the Millennium that are with him and those who aren’t:

“And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep theFeast of Tabernacles. And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain.  If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles”(Zech. 14:16-19).

In the above scripture reference, Egypt is symbolic of the world, or “anti-Christ” government and idolatry that opposes the Lord and His ways (Heb. 11:26).   When the Lord delivered the Israelites out of Egypt and brought them to Mt. Sinai, God offered the nation a “proposal of marriage” that they accepted (Ex. 19).  By honoring God’s Covenant, they were supposed to be a SIGN to the other nations of the one true God, and to show them His ways.

“Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths (weekly and yearly Feasts “holy days”) you shall keep, for it is a SIGN between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you” (Ex. 31:13).

Honoring the Feasts was God’s witness, His SIGN, that He was the one true God.  In like manner, these corporate Fall Feasts, specifically Tabernacles, will unify the nations with the Lord’s headship.

“For I will cast out the nations before you and enlarge your borders; neither will any man covet your land when you go up to appear before the Lord your God three times in the year” (Ex. 34:24).

Because the Israelites failed to keep their promise to God, it didn’t take much time until they did not reflect God’s SIGN at all. It would take God Himself to keep His promise to the nation regardless of their shortcomings.  And so….Christ came… fulfilled the Spring Feasts, redeemed the Abrahamic Covenant, and made way for the SEAL/SIGN once again.  We who receive Christ enter into this Covenant promise.

“Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ” (Gal. 3:16).

The Gospels also describe the nations accepting or rejecting the Kingship of Christ in the earth during the Millennium are differentiated between the “sheep and the goats.”

“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left”(Matt. 25:31-33).

Christ will comes again and fulfill the pattern and purpose of the Fall Feasts very soon.  He will judge the nations with His “Firstfruits” remnant at His side and establish righteousness in the earth. The nations who are with Him will become HIS CORPORATE SEAL/SIGN in the earth.

Tabernacles is one of three Feasts that God desires for His people to gather corporately.  For those to whom God is revealing this pattern of His Holy Days to, they too have an opportunity to participate in being a witness to God’s SIGN in the earth by taking time to gather and honor this Feast.  As hearts unite to honor the Redeemer in unity of worship and prayer on HIS appointed time, God’s glory will be revealed in the earth.


Sanhedrin to Resume Animal Sacrifices in Israel

There are a lot of events happening around the world to alert us to the changes coming up ahead and the signs of the times we live in to prepare our hearts and to warn us to be prepared for Lord’s return.  But I wanted to share these two links that have captured my heart.

The first one is the event happening on September 25-27th, 2019.  The emerging “Organization of 70 Nations” are being invited to join the Sanhedrin on Mount Olives to reinstate the animal sacrifices and to adhere to the “Noahic laws.”

Our eyes should be watching what is happening with this for sure as it is a sign God warned us about before His return. If the nations join and agree to this reinstating the animal sacrifices, it will be the nations rejection of what Jesus did to redeem ALL of God’s Covenant’s for man and creation through His sacrifice on the cross.

The spirit of anti-christ is always looking for ways to nullify the work on the cross.  But most importantly for today, that spirit of anti-christ is working to gather nations to reject the cornerstone of Christianity because Christ is coming back to judge the nations.  Satan is working hard to get nations to align with his strategy through the ideology of unity, peace, and acceptance of all religions.


The second link is a prophetic sign of encouragement to the remnant God has been preparing who will receive their glorified bodies and reign with Christ in the Millennium. This article seems to be SIGN that we are getting closer to that day.

Here is a lot of the article written on “Breaking Israel News” website:

“Now let me return to our walking tour through the City of David. We listened to AnaRina Heymann give an insightful and eye-opening message about the City of David on Monday morning. She shared that the City of David as it remains today is literally “outside” the Old City walls and it can speak to us to “think outside the box”.  There has been a 2800 year disconnect from this place for the Ten Tribes/Northern Kingdom/House of Israel and a 2,000-year disconnect for the Jews/Southern Kingdom/House of Judah. 

The city of David was built on a Tel close to a water source, the Gihon spring. In ancient times, there was a secret tunnel leading to this fortified pool/cistern, which was the City of David’s main water source. This water source (Gihon spring) was OUTSIDE of the walls of the city of David, so the underground tunnel allowed residents access to the water even if they were under enemy attack.J

Anna and I took the “dry route” of Hezekiah’s tunnel that led to this “outside the city walls secret cistern of life giving water.


When we finally came all the way through the downward descent of this tunnel, we came out into a neighborhood, and we completed our walk by ending up at the pool of Siloam:

We sat on the stone steps of the pool for some time, cooling down from the long walk in the heat of the day.

We then walked down to the end of the pool and a man approached us. Little did I know that this was truly a divine appointment orchestrated by the God of Israel!

He spoke to us. It turned out that he has been a tour guide of Jerusalem for more than 20 years and he was on a “break”. He showed us some murals that had been painted showing what the pool might have looked like when fully functioning and restored:

He explained to us that this was the pool where the people would come to “mikvah” (or immerse) before ascending to the Temple for Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot!Then the real hidden treasure and mystery was revealed to us. The tour guide pointed out some stone steps to our left. He said, “You see those stone steps? They lead right up to the Temple Mount. After the people would mikvah here at the pool of Siloam, they would then ascend these stone steps up to the Temple.”

He went on to explain that the Jews had been excavating these steps for many years and that the steps would soon be open to the public in a few months…….In the excavating of these stone steps leading up to the Temple, there seems to me to be a revealing of a deeper spiritual truth…..   Perhaps God’s hand is making a way to birth a greater vision for a restored Temple…even in the hearts of Christians throughout the Nations.


This find by the archeologists was revealed at God’s appointed time.  It is not a coincidence it has been hidden all these years.  God wants to establish it as His prophetic sign of what He will do up ahead when Jesus returns.  The remnant’s temple (body) will be cleansed and set free from sin and death, then go up “Jacob’s Ladder (stairs)” to stand before the throne and meet the Lord.

Something to look forward to!
