Shana Tova

Shana Tova,

I hope the new year has found everyone in good physical and spiritual health. We are in the ten days of awe between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Remember, Rosh Hashanah coincides with the Feast of Trumpets. Since the spring feasts and Shavu'ot were prophetic, the hope is that the fall feasts are prophetic also. That is my hope and understanding.

If they are prophetic, will the rapture of the true body of the Meshiach be, as Paul says, at the last trump. If so, then this surely points to Rosh Hashanah and the Feast of Trumpets as the best possible future date of the rapture. My hope is that it can be any day, as we don't know the true day of his coming. However, we are told to recognize the signs of the times.

The purpose of Yom Kippur is to bring about reconciliation between us and other individuals and G-d. According to Jewish tradition, it is also the day when God decides the fate of each human being. Could this coincide with the future throne judgement. That is why I often say to my friends and family upon saying goodbye, "I'll meet you at the southern gate". Why the southern gate? Because the judgment throne of God will sit at the western gate. Those that belong to G-d will be at his right side, the southern gate.

Prophetic or not, we should use these days to recognize and become familiar with the plan of G-d and how we fit into it. Shun the ways of man and cling to the one and only G-d.

Shalom and I will see you, the b'nai Elohim, at the southern gate.
