Over the many years of writing for this website and others, I’ve often contemplated Christ’s return during the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah. This morning, I did a quick search of this site’s archives for articles I’ve written on the Rapture of the Church, and I discovered that my first online publication on the topic was in 2004–seven years ago.
What I ask of you at this moment in time is to consider the very real possibility that Christ will return for His Bride at any moment…and that this month could be His scheduled return. Now, if you’re saying to yourself right now that ‘no man can know the day or the hour’, then you’re right. I’m not predicting the exact day or hour–I’m merely saying that we can know the season.
This month is when Jews around the world celebrate the beginning of the world and the creation of Adam. Rosh Hashanah means the ‘head of the year’, and it is said that on this day, the Lord God Almighty fashioned a new creation called Adam and instilled that new man with His own breath, granting him life and the unique property of being ‘in God’s own image’.
Six thousand or so years have passed since that amazing moment in time. During those millennia, mankind has proven again and again just how depraved we can be–but God still loved us so much that He sent His Son, Yeshua ha Meshiach (Jesus the Christ in Greek), to provide the living sacrifice for you and for me–for all who accept Him–so that we will live with our Father for eternity rather than suffer eternal DEATH in Hell.
Perhaps, you know Christ as your Savior already, but if you do not, I implore you to consider Christ today. Tomorrow may be too late for you. We all have an expiration date–is yours coming soon? Christ IS returning for His Bride, perhaps this month on Rosh Hashanah–are you ready to go with Him?
