Why I believe the Groom May Come For His Bride on Yom Teruah 2017!
The idea behind a pre-rapture is something I battle with as there really seems to be no concrete proof behind this teaching. The so called mid-tribulation rapture makes more sense to my logical approach to the scriptures and what is presented within this site. Yet, I am reminded of the patterns of the ancient Jewish wedding, whereby, the Bridegroom comes for his Bride and takes her away into the Chuppa for 7 days before the Great Wedding Feast. Of course, he may come for his bride on any year, but I see Yom Teruah as a special time for various reasons. We will see!
There are two significant events that fall on Yom Teruah 2017. The first being the most obvious and that being the Revelation Chapter 12 Mid-Tribulation Sign in the heavens as discussed.
The second is not so obvious and that has to do with a little known prophecy of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel concerning Jerusalem.
Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel
This prophecy of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel is very promising although I am careful not to give it a lot of focus since it is not from the Bible and is hard to follow its origin past the year 1909. Here is the wikipedia page concerning his origins. The prophecy is stunning because there are sources that prove it’s authenticy from at least 1909 and over two jubilees ago. Yet, because of a lack of real manuscripts on this topic, I tend to tread on it lightly.
According to an article written by WND, Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel basically had a vision whereby he received revelation concerning Jerusalem in what is known as the 10 Jubilee Prophecy. His words have been quoted. Here is the prophecy…
Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel – “When the Ottomans (Turks) – who were already a power to be reckoned with on the Bosporus in the time of Judah Ben Samuel – conquer Jerusalem they will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees. Afterwards Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee, and then in the ninth jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
You can draw your own conclusions, but it is remarkable that it lines up with the Revelation Chapter 12 Sign in the heavens! Make sure you allow yourself to become purified nonetheless!
