Honeymoon, Destruction And Tribulation part one

Honeymoon, Destruction And Tribulation

Part One

Jesus fulfilled the Spring Feast, Jesus will fulfill the fall feast. The rapture, The destruction of Babylon, and the Tribulation Period that will both last seven years but will all begin in a startling ten-day period. These Fall Feast events will start the parallel of two separate great events that will happen at the same time, lasting seven years……

The Honeymoon Ceremony and the Tribulation Period.

Jesus will fulfill the fulfilled the Spring Feast in His First Coming, so Jesus will fulfill the Fall feast in His Second Coming,  in the Consummation of His Bride.

Honeymoon, Destruction And Tribulation – Tying it together

First Event; Day one The Feast Of Rosh haShanah also called (The Last Trump), Jesus will take his Bride, (The Rapture ) on the Honeymoon to His Fathers House. This  is just as the way “God the Father” gave the instruction on exactly how a Jewish People were to perform the betrothal period in the Ancient Jewish Wedding, the Wedding and the Honeymoon ending with the Wedding Supper. Jesus said in this famous scripture below clearly is Jewish Wedding terminology.

John 14:2-4
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. KJV

I don’t know that in my understanding, that Jesus was ever quoted saying more in just a few words, than in the few Word’s in the verses above, these are very powerful Word’s that clearly show and teach us so many things.

So when we become Believers In Christ, we are then betrothed to Christ. But the Honeymoon Ceremony or the Wedding Consummation  has not Yet taken place yet. To Be Very Specific, we see that this will all happen according to the Fall Feast.

For some reason unknown to me, we seem to think here in America that when the Bible uses Wedding Terminology such as Honeymoon, The Bride or when referring to Wedding Supper, that it going to be like an Modern American Wedding. The instruction that God gave the Hebrews on just how to perform the ancient Jewish Wedding, is quite different from what we practice here in America. Now please know that we do not teach Gentiles Churches to keep or to observe the Jewish Feast and Festivals. But we should truly learn about the Feast and their themes to better understand better the coming events that we see in prophecy. We especially need to be willing to labor in the Word to learn about the Jewish Feast that were appointed by God that clearly rehearsals in regard to the Ancient Jewish Wedding. This truly concerns me as a bible teacher in America, I feel that Churches have Americanized the Word of God. We cannot see clear what prophecy scriptures are pointing to, by neglecting or ignoring the customs of the people who the Word was originally written too.

Some very basic Knowledge Of The Customs of the Jewish Wedding And The Feast.

Example: When we get saved, we have become betrothed to Christ, we are then what I will call, legally married. Now what I mean by legally married is; you are then betrothed to Christ and it would then need a certificate of divorce to get out of the Marriage Contract. But note that in the original aancient Hebrew or ancient Jewish marriage, we have not been through the Honeymoon Ceremony yet. So although our marriage to Jesus is legal and binding by a marriage contract by our confession of Faith in Him as Christ, but we need to know this also; that our marriage to Jesus has NOT yet been consummated. This will take when Jesus raptures us from Earth and are taken to His Father’s House fro seven years, we will be in Heaven with him during the seven tear tribulation period. Two events great events will happen simultaneously. So what does this mean to us? Let us continue.

Understand further The Ancient Hebrew or Jewish Wedding Customs

Now when A Jewish Man would go and pay the Bride Price to her parents, just as Jesus paid the bride price at Calvary for His bride, right? So then the Bride is what I will call “Legally Married“, but they would not have “Consummated the Wedding” yet. In an American wedding, we get married and leave right away for the honeymoon, but this is not the case in an Ancient Jewish Wedding. In the Jewish Wedding the Groom would then leave or depart from the bride and leave her at “her father’s house” for two-year period. They would separate for up to two years and the Groom would then go to “his father’s house”, exactly like what Jesus says in the above scripture above “to prepare a place.” So Jesus says himself, that He must go and prepare a place first for us, that will be The Honeymoon Ceremony.

Parallel to this unfolding just as The Ancient Jewish Wedding, also are the Fall Feast that will be fulfilled by Jesus. Now this really becomes very interesting and really exciting!

So Teachers know that there is Spring Feast and Fall Feast.

Jesus fulfilled the Passover Feast, a Spring Feast when He was crucified and was then buried on the Feast Of First Fruits, then he rose again as it was said in the scripture below on the morrow after the Sabbath. Now after His resurrection when Jesus was then leaving the apostles. Now please read again in John 14:2-4, that he was going to His Fathers House where there is many mansions, to prepare a place for us.

John 14:2-4
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. KJV

Also make a mental note: Remember that the Jewish day starts in darkness and ends in light. The start of the Millennium or the last  1000 years that is written in Rev starts with tribulation period, a dark time but the will end in good or light.

A prophecy concerning Jesus that He would fulfill a spring feast.

Lev 23:11-12
11 And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
12 And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the Lord. KJV

So if Jesus fulfilled the Spring Feast, so then we also see that Jesus will almost without a doubt, is going to fulfill the Fall Feast fulfilling the prophecies of  Rapture and on to Honeymoon Ceremony and then seven years later fulfilling another Feast in His Second Coming! And all of this will happen according to the instruction By God the Father of the Ancient Jewish Wedding.

Note this: Then also followed by the Wedding Supper, on the Feast Of Sukkot, but we are not going to get to deep into the Jewish Wedding Supper in this lesson series. We have plenty to cover already, I just want to pull out what we need to see how this has unfolded in the past and see how it is clearly unfolding now concerning the Honeymoon, Destruction and Tribulation.

Why Should We Learn Bible History?

We see this in Eccl 1:9, that God told us that we can look at what He has done in the past, to see what he will do in the future.

Eccl 1:9-10
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. KJV

Revelation Knowledge in the Word and according to the Word, will make you a powerful witness to Christ.

Just like in His First Coming, in which no one man could have ever orchestrated and/or fulfilled all these Feast especially when paralleled of the Holy Wedding Ceremony! For anyone to have fulfilled all these prophecies and events at the same time, the odds are to great to number. Please realize as difficult as this is to learn, that this is reason enough to labor and learn this material inside and out from the Jewish Perspective. This knowledge in the Word will bring spiritual growth make you powerful and irrefutable witness to Christ. But this knowledge does not come without laboring.

Let’s Continue…… The Honeymoon Ceremony of the Jewish Wedding

Now the Groom would then return to take her to the place that he has prepared at His Fathers house for consummation of the Wedding. Note: The Groom would not see His Bride for two years, now here we see two years that also represents the 2000 year period that Jesus went to His Fathers House to Prepare a Place for the Honeymoon. So then Jesus will return, to Rapture or take the Bride on the Honeymoon. We see this in Rev 19:11 where the Bride will return with Christ from the Honeymoon at the end of the tribulation in the actual Second Coming of Jesus on the Feast of Yom Kippur also called (the Great Trump).

Ex 12:16
16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. KJV

Now I love the way the above scripture is worded, the First day of the week Sunday is on every calendar in the World, we start the week off  resting. And the Last Day, the Day God rested after creation and the Millennium period, the last day is the 1000 year period, last day recorded in Prophecy so far. So this time we have live on Earth has been a 6000 year period is a Holy Convocation, meaning; A Holy Wedding Rehearsal – for The Son Jesus of the Holy Father for the Seventh Day. It will become very clear to see that our time here on Earth, has paralleled a 6000 year Wedding Rehearsal.

Do not confuse this with the Second Coming Event also called (the Great Trump) with the Honeymoon Or  The Rapture of the Church Event also referred to (the Last Trump). So again the Church will be on our Honeymoon  with “Christ our Groom” while tribulation period is going on here on Earth. Then we will return here after Seven years with him. The Return Revelations. Also refer to the detailed Lesson series on Three Significant Feast

The Return Of Jesus, The Second Coming on the Feast of Yom Kippur (The Great Trump)

Rev 19:13-14
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. KJV

Now A Huge Question: What is the purpose of the Tribulation Period while we are with Christ in His Fathers House?

God the Father had already taken a Bride in Exodus at the foot of the Mountain? Does this ring a bell? They had defiled God and built a calf god to party and celebrate with and in disobedience to the Holy Father. So the Tribulation Period also seven years in time, is the time that God will reconcile the His marriage with His Chosen People.This is a time where God the Father will deliver Israel from all her enemies showing them once again that he Loves her. But this is also a She a judgement for Israel’s actions (or the Hebrews) against God. This also explains why the Jews were blinded in part, not able to see Christ as the Messiah. I will explain further.

So why were the Jews blinded in Part, what is the probably a true and simply logical reason for this? This question to myself had always bewildered me.

Know that they were already married to the Father, if they were not blinded in part and were to know that Jesus was messiah; first, the Jews would not have rejected Christ, the Jews rejecting Christ was by God’s design. Yes, it was Part of God’s Plan, this had to happen! There is a wake up call here…….  Now for the exact reasons, they  are will probably remain unknown to us, but this was clearly in God’s plan and had to happen. If Jews had received Jesus (or as we call it, become saved), then Israel or also called The Fathers Chosen People or even better The Fathers Bride, would then go with Jesus at the time of the Rapture. This cannot happen Teachers So in the teaching’s by many Messianic Rabbi’s and what I clearly see in my study, this is a separation point of the Fathers Bride and the “Church” or the “Bride of Christ” for a seven year period. Clearly two different events take place at the same time!

Now please know that some Jews had and do become believers obviously, like the Twelve Apostles and a few Jews by percentage become believers today. But just like some of the Gentiles who followed the Hebrews out of Egypt in Exodus and were of the Fathers Bride, I cannot and will not try to explain, but God clearly has a reason for everything He does. And teachers, know that those reasons are not always going to be known by man’s understanding.

But there is clearly a separation of the two Brides and of their events to happen. Yes, there are two Clearly Brides made of the Hebrews and the majority of today’s Jews that are the Fathers Bride. Now the” Church” or the “Bride of Christ” who is clearly made up of mostly Gentiles.

The more I learn, the more it becomes obvious to me how much I do not know. So I will not pretend to have all the answers, but I have a few. When you finally see this, it will take much of the confusion out of the different events and why they will happen the way they will. But by not knowing this from the Jewish Perspective, will also dilutes a very dangerous misconception of what is called “replacement theology”.  The Jews were never replaced as God’s Chosen People, that is a complete misconception born out of a lack of knowledge. And by a lack of knowledge his people shall parish.

Hos 4:6
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. KJV

And by studying scripture will bring Revelation Knowledge by the Holy Ghost in the Word Of God. This alleviates any and all  reason for jealousy over the Jews being God’s Chosen out of the picture. This is meat not milk people, so take your time here.

The Call Of God’s People Out Of Babylon Just Before She is Destroyed

What will finally cause all the Jews left here on earth to know that Jesus was the Messiah? The Answer; When the Rapture of the Church is witnessed here on Earth, those who are the Bride of the Father who were partially blinded, many of them (mostly the ones in called by God to Flee Babylon) will then see Jesus was the Son Of The Father and will become Saved instantly. The 120 thousand in Revelations, who are called the Saints who are  in Babylon and immediately called out of her (Babylon) right after the event of the Rapture. We see this in detail in Jeremiah and referenced in Revelations…….

Rev 18:4
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. KJV

Also In Great Detail

Referring to Babylon and what is about to happen to her.

Jer 50:1-6
50 The word that the Lord spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet.
2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.

The next verse In Jer. Russia, the King Of The North is called to Destroy Her.

3 For out of the north there cometh up a nation against her, which shall make her land desolate, and none shall dwell therein: they shall remove, they shall depart, both man and beast.

In the following verses in Jer. the Jews From Babylon Will Come Together With the Jews Of Israel

4 In those days, and in that time, saith the Lord, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the Lord their God.
5 They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace. KJV

Again Here In Chapter 51 Of Jeremiah..

Jer 51:45
45 My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord. KJV

Now I Create A Scenario to help understand how the events will happen according to the Feast that relevant?

You will have to read this very close, or you will miss it. Let me give just one scenario of how this could all happen. Jesus fulfilled the Spring Feast in His First Coming, of course Jesus will fulfill the Fall Feast in His Second Coming.

First read what Jesus said in the below Scripture in Mathew:

Now I am the first to admit that the older I get the more I realize I do not know. No teacher no matter how well studied can be exactly certain of exactly how this will unfold. But there is definitive events that will take place according to the fall feast. I will give an educated scenario on what I do see, this will have to apply some basic 5th grade math skills.

Jesus is Speaking of the day He will remove the Church. What we Holy Rollers refer to as the Day Of Rapture, when the Gates will open and then will close. Everything will going on as usual, until the moment of the destruction of Babylon occurs.

Matt 24:37-39
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. KJV

Let us now look at something in the flood…. I had read these scriptures about the flood for years and never caught this until Rev Mike Sawyer pointed this out to me.

When did the rain Start after God shut the door of the Ark?

Gen 7:10
0 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. KJV

Notice the word after, the Rain didn’t start for seven days, then after seven days the Earth was flood rains came. God had already shut the doors of the Ark seven days prior to the floods came. So how is that relevant here? Jesus said himself it would be as it was as in the day of Noe. So many Messianic Teachers or Believing Rabbi’s teach that the “seven days” that were given to the people before the flood rain started, was a time to repent. When God shut the door or in this case The Gate, God’s mercy still gives you time to repent, even though they were unable to enter the ark….. You will see the same here in the destruction of Babylon, but unable to escape. If this is the case, this raises many other questions that about what we are taught here in America, but we won’t get into that now.

Many Messianic Rabbi’s teach that there are two reasons God will give the people seven days after the Church removed. First after the rapture, the Jews who are called out of Babylon will then have time to seven days flee Babylon. There is some evidence of a another possible “Parting of the Sea” that may take place, or some type of miraculous mass exodus will occur from Babylon to Israel. The second reason is also for the unbelievers who remain in Babylon after the rapture, will have time to repent. Just as in the day of Noe, even though they cannot escape the wrath that is about to come. The Door or Gate is opened and shut by God.

This puts the destruction of Babylon on the Eighth Day, seven days after the Feast Of Rosh Hashanah, which has a another name, as we discussed back in Part Two. A man by the name of Rabbi Saadia Gaone who had written that paper in the First Babylon in 1000 AD, he also called Rosh Hashanah  “The Opening Of The Gates”  referring to “The Day of the Rapture.”

So there is a Ten Day period between the “Feast of Rosh haShanah and the Feast of Yom Kippur”. We know that the rapture when it happens, in what ever year and that day or what hour, that only the Father knows will happen on the Feast of Rosh haShanah. But Jesus and Paul both said we will know the times, also by the signs he told this Generation to know and watch for.  Also know that Rosh haShanah which always falls anywhere from the middle of September to the First Week of October, is when the feast starts, exactly at the sighting of the New Moon, this always begins the Jewish New Year. This Rapture Event happening on that feast, will be exactly ten days before the beginning or start of the Tribulation period.

But Now Catch This People; many Jews after the Rapture will most likely be deceived by Satan, who will always imitate what Jesus will do, also according to the Feast, but at the wrong times.

We know that Jesus, the second coming will happen on the Feast of Yom Kippur, the Great Trumpets.

So Satan will deceive many by imitating what Jesus will do by fulfilling the Fall Feast. But Satan can only deceive those who do not have a clear understanding of the Fall Feast concerning these events.

So How Exactly Could Satan Very Easily Deceive Many?

First know this, which God tells us in the scripture below, that Anti Christ will be a Jew. Satan will also do this by stepping into Power on a Feast, the Feast of Yom Kippur,  just as Jesus will do. But Satan will do it seven years before the Actual Second Coming on the Feast Of Yom Kippur. Satan will step into power on a Yom Kippur Feast Day at the beginning of the Tribulation, seven years before it is supposed to happen. Now is there scripture to support this the Anti Christ will be a Jew and is involved with Revived Roman Empire? Yes!

A Description of The Anti Christ In Zechariah

Zech 8:23
23 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. KJV

So we see that the Anti Christ will be a Jew that he will probably be born out of or at least come out of the Revived Roman Empire….

Now we will Part one here and pick this up in the Part Two The last lesson of this series.

Honeymoon, Destruction And Tribulation part two coming soon
