BUT – 1 Thess 5:4 “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief”
BUT – In Jewish wedding tradition, it is customary to respond to a question of when the wedding will occur with “I do not know, not even the angels know but only the Father knows”. Simply because the bride’s father sets the date of the wedding when he is satisfied that all things are ready. As the big wedding day approaches all is revealed… when the Father gives the all clear, the groom comes with a shout and a trump (Yom Teruah) and takes the bride away for 7 days….
BUT – Yom Teruah – IS the Jewish Feast of which “no-one knows the day or the hour, not even the angels in heaven know “. Also called: the day of the great shout, the day of awe, the day of trumpets – “THE HIDDEN DAY” .. It is also called: The Time of Jacobs trouble, The Day of the Awakening Blast, Day of Judgment, The Opening of the Books, Opening of the Gates, Yom HaKeseh (The Hidden Day), Ha Kiddushin/Nesuin (Wedding of the Messiah) and Ha Melech (Coronation of the Messiah).
Yom Teruah is called the Hidden Day because, according to custom, God has hidden the day especially from HaSatan and his fallen angels.. The phrase “not even the angels know, nor do I” is a wedding terminology. Basically, if someone asked when the wedding will be, the traditional response is “i don’t know, not even the angels in heaven know, but only my father” simply because the Father would decide the day when he saw that everything had been prepared for the bride (“behold I go to prepare a place for you) as per the note above….. or go here for more about the wedding phrase:
Yom Teruah is unique because there is no explicit reason given in the Torah for its observance other than to “rest” and to offer sacrifice. It WAS a MYSTERY, … ONLY REVEALED IN CORINTHIANS MUCH LATER…. when Paul says, “Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet (shofar OF YOM TERUAH): for the trumpet (shofar) shall sound (YOM TERUAH – the beginning of the days of Awe), and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:51) – he is intentionally speaking about Yom Teruah.. (1 Cor 15:51-52).
Pentecost is known as the first trump, Yom Kippur is known as the GREAT TRUMP (Isaiah) and Rosh Hashanah (Yom Teruah) is known as the “Last Trump” (because it involves 100 blasts of the shofar). And then the Feast of Trumpets begins (days of awe) - I personally think the rapture (whether pre-trib or post-trib) could occur at any day during the feast of trumpets (the whole week) but MOST likely on Yom Teruah.
If pre-trib doctrine is correct then it’s possible that the 10 days of teshuvah (repentance - Yom Teruah to Yom Kippur) will lead to the 144,000 Israelites chosen out of this repentance.
REMEMBER.. the feasts are HIS Mo’edim (Appointed Times) for example:
WHATS NEXT ?? Is there a pattern here we should be aware of ??
According to the ancient HEBREW sages (teachers) there is hidden wisdom in the Tanakh (Old Testament Bible) about the coming 1000 year reign of the MESSIACH (Messiah) and WHEN it will begin.. An interesting date to watch for:
Jesus said to watch for His return of which no-one knows the day or the hour sooooooooo:
Yom Teruah – the Jewish Feast of which “no-one knows the day or the hour” . Also called: the day of the great shout, the day of awe, the day of trumpets – “THE HIDDEN DAY”

Talk about a last minute revival !! I wonder if it will occur this year ?? HOPEFULLY
Is it possible that as the Levites stood atop of the mount for the last time, all of a moment they received a final flash of prophetic revelation…?? That maybe, they sang the song of Wednesday as a prophetic insight that once again the clock for Israel’s time would once again re-start on a Wednesday (beginning the 7 years of the 70th week of Daniel’s vision). The time when all of heaven turns its eyes on Israel as the time of the Gentiles ends??? Maybe even Wednesday 28th September, 2011 (Yom Teruah)?? .. It is just as profound to note that the Jerusalem temple mount was captured on Wednesday, June 7th, 1967
Apr 15, 2014 on Passover
Oct 08, 2014 on Feast of Tabernacles
Apr 04, 2015 on Passover — and finally on
Sep 28, 2015 on Feast of Tabernacles.
The last few times this occurred there was GREAT change in Israel:
Lunar Tetrad on Jewish Feasts:
no more Lunar Tetrad for a LOOOOONNGG time..
Which brings us to the year 2018 (5778 for Hebrew Calendar) .
2018 – 1948 = 70 years from Abraham’s birth to Covenant with God
2018 – 1948 = 70 years from Israeli Statehood to Messiah
If we extrapolate that to a Nation we see that the Babylonian exile of the Jewish nation lasted exactly 70 years and that the year 5778 (2017-18 CE) will be the 70th year of the Israeli nation, formed in 5708 (1948 CE).
I just love how Abraham was born 1948 years after Adam and then Israel was 1948 after Jesus (the second Adam).. haha
The Torah reading on 24th September this year (2011) is actually a wedding announcement – Isaiah 61.10
“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”
Also I find it amazing that the Parashah reading Vayelech on 24th September is the portion where, according to Jewish tradition, that the Heavenly Voice called out to Moses, “This is your last day on earth”.. nice!!
