Rapture September 2016?

The Possibilities Behind the Rapture September 2016!

The following is the most logical explanation for the Rapture of the Church or the Groom coming for His Bride during or just before the Feast of Yom Teruah/Yom Kippur of 2016.  Please view the image titled, Age of Messiah to the Age of Life, compliments of TorahCalendar.com.


Age of Messiah to Age of Life!

This diagram shows the critical one year period of time that being September 2015 to September 2016.  If my logic and intuition are correct, then we can expect a break down of society starting from Yom Teruah 2015, with Yom Kippur being the official Appointed Feast (Mow’ed) of tribulation.

Notice how Torah Calendar shows the Gregorian date of September 2014 as being the start of the Day of יהוה .”  That phrase is used to signify judgment from the Almighty that has been appointed (Appointed Feast) to fall on Yom Kippur.  The context of this phrase comes from the 58th & 61st chapters of Isaiah.  “…Do you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to יהוה?” (Isaiah 58:5)(read the entire chapter for context).  This identifies the “Great Day” of Yom Kippur while, “to proclaim the acceptable year of יהוה, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim” (Isaiah 61:2) describes the Day being Yom Kippur and the Year being the 50th Year of Jubilee.

It should be clear that judgment did not begin Yom Kippur 2014 as Torah Calendar is off exactly one year as the year 6,000 will begin September 2015 with the year 6,001 (the beginning of the 7th Millennium) beginning September 2016 as being the most logical date for the Rapture September 2016.  For those of you not familiar with my logic of the tribulation beginning in September 2015, then I would recommend reading my recent article titled, the Final Shmitah Connection to 2021.  This article lays a good foundation of this concept as well as a good foundation for my book, September 2021.

Using the corrected start date of the Day of יהוה as being Yom Kippur 2015 and ending on the eve of Yom Kippur 2016, then we can view this diagram once more in a new understanding.  It is my belief and understanding that the Groom comes for his Bride from a period of time from Yom Teruah to Yom Kippur 2016 as they indicate, “Marriage of the Lamb” and “Resurrection of the Righteous” at this time.  Notice that the civil calendar year 6,001 will finalize the “Age of Messiah” and is a critical point until the “Age of Life,” which represents the Messianic Kingdom in this case as the Bride is taken into heaven who will then return back to Earth with Yahshua to establish His Kingdom on Earth while the inhabitants of the earth are judged.

I am not one who believes in a pre-tribulation rapture, but rather believes that the Body of Messiah (the Church) must be refined by the refiner’s fire of tribulation for at least one year in order for purification.  This makes the most sense to me and seems to line up with the beginning of the 7th millennium, that being Yom Teruah to Yom Kippur 6,001 and the Rapture September 2016.  Please notice the “Resurrection of the Righteous by this Time” on the Graph.

Please take note that this  idea or theory is simply my observation and perspective along with the perspective from Torah Calendar and may not represent actual events coming to past as described!


  1. Hi Phil,

    Thanks for your excellent website!

    Some months ago I read Daniel 9 : 25. Suddenly I saw what I never saw before in my Dutch translation: The Messiah coming back after 7 weeks and also after 62 weeks. After 62 weeks we know, for that has been Jesus. But after 7 weeks we missed until now.

    Because this is not my mother language I cannot explain it better in more details. I am sorry.

    In verse 25 a Messiah is named, but also in verse 26. So that made clear to me that there are two comings of the Lord, othierwise it is not logical.

    So I put it on my website in Dutch and got a lot of reactions. After some weeks I discovered that I was not the only one who did see it this way. 300 years ago one of the most famous scientists did also discover it: Sir Isaac Newton.

    He also saw the coming of the Lord for us 7 weeks after the commandment to restore Jerusalem. But in Newton’s time Israel did not live in its God given country and had nothing to do with Jerusalem.

    So I think the rapture is 7 weeks after the commandment to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, that means on September 23, 2015!

      Much like yourself, I believe that the 7 weeks from Daniel 9:25 clearly identifies the Messiah’s arrival the first time and a second time with regard to Daniel’s prophecy. I believe that Daniel’s 7 weeks (49 years or 7 Shmitahs) identify either this 10 days of Awe in 2015 or 2016 with the feasts of Yom Kippur identifying this event especially considering that the 49 years ends on September 23rd/24th. There seems to be many verses that speak of being saved on that Day of Wrath and is often attributed to the Feast’s of Tishri. My intuition tells me that the Bride needs one year to purify herself and is why I am reserving September 2016 as possibly being this time. Thanks you your comment!
