When will Jesus return? Many of us are very excited for that day, but no one knows the day or the hour. One thing we know for certain: Jesus will NOT come during the Feast of Trumpets 2022! How do we know? Because that day has come and gone!
Each Feast of Trumpets, some Christian groups get all excited, hoping it to be the day of the rapture. Because a trumpet will sound at the rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51-52), and because the timing of the seven major feasts of Israel indicates the Feast of Trumpets is next, Christians eager to know the timing of the rapture often are drawn to the idea that Christ will return during the Feast of Trumpets.
There are at least two major flaws in that theory:
- The Bible tells us no one knows the day or the hour. Since we know when the Feast of Trumpets commences each year, and because some predict that day, it pretty much eliminates His return during the Feast of Trumpets!
- The Feast of Trumpets is a Jewish feast, not a Christian one! The feasts were instituted for the Jewish people, and they are very Jewish in content and context. Yes, there are strong Biblical principles we can draw from those feasts, but the primary purpose (and thus, interpretation) of the feasts must be Jewish in context.
We don’t need to guess or predict that day….we simply need to be ready, as it could be ANY day! God does not live in a box, and we will never be successful in trying to put Him there! Every day is “available” as God sees fit to send His Son to redeem us for eternity! Come today, Lord!
