August 27, 2015 Brethren Letter
The fall Holy Day season is approaching very quickly. We’ll be observing the Feast of Trumpets on Monday, September 14th. That’s just two weeks away.
23 ”Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation” (Leviticus 23:23-24 NKJV).
This specific annual High Sabbath Day reveals an event that will astound all of humanity. The Feast of Trumpets pictures the dramatic return of Jesus Christ to this earth, to establish the Kingdom of God. “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:27). Christ’s second coming will not happen secretly or clandestinely. There is no secret rapture ahead! “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).
God shows us in the book of Isaiah what will take place at Christ’s return.
6 “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7).
That is what God has revealed within the pages of our Bibles.
Have a wonderful Sabbath!
Your Brother in Christ,
