What's up everyone. We are doing a contest with T.I. and we are giving away $1200 a day for the next 10 days. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.
Amos 8, Ezekiel 7, and the Feast of Trumpets!
First and foremost 🤬 said that He would do nothing unless He told His prophets beforehand what He is about to do (Amos 3:7). The biblical example is when 🤬 destroyed 🤬 and Gomorrah. Before the destruction 🤬 said this: "17And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do." (Genesis 18:17) The account goes on to tell us how 🤬 revealed to Abraham His intention to destroy 🤬 , Gomorrah, and the neighboring cities; but Abraham pleaded with 🤬 to spare the cities if He could find at least 10 righteous souls in it. Sadly only Lot and his 2 daughters could be found. Therefore we see how 🤬 operates. He reveals His plans to His servants the prophets beforehand. Thus if we diligently seek the LORD to reveal to us His secrets, He will show us things to come. Amen.
In Amos 8 we have many clues about when the day of the Lord begins! Amos 8:1-2 describes the rapture! The basket of summer fruit that Amos sees is the harvest aka the rapture. In Israel the summer harvest of fruit comes after the feast of Pentecost during the months of June, July, August, and September! See the chart on this website which shows the 3 main fruit crops of Israel (grapes, figs, and pomegranates) that are harvested in the summer
Yeshua gave us the biggest clue about the end of the age in parable form! And it was also connected to the summer, fruit, and the harvest. He told us this in Matthew 24:
"32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away."
Parables were given to hide the truth from the spiritually blind, but it was given to His disciples so that we could know the mysteries of the kingdom! Matthew 24:32 tells us that when we see the fig tree blossom we should know that summer is near! The fig tree is Israel! It started to blossom May 14, 1948! Therefore we should know that summer is near! And Amos 8:1-2 tells us that the harvest comes when the basket of summer fruit is filled during the summer season leading up to the Feast of Trumpets!
And speaking of the Feasf of Trumpets, guess what happens next? Well in Amos 8:2-3 it speaks of the destruction that comes when the LORD passes through on the cloudy day! And guess what the day of sudden destruction is connected to? The feast of trumpets! In Amos 8:5 🤬 convicts the people of wanting the new moon and the sabbath to pass so that they can go back to defrauding the poor and needy! The feast of trumpets is connected to the new moon and sabbath. Read Leviticus 23:23-25:
"23And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 24Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation. 25Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD."
This is where Hebraic roots study is crucial for The feast of trumpets is known as the hidden day in Hebraic thought. It is the day that no one knows "the day nor the hour" because it can only begin when the new moon is sighted. And a new moon only happens on the first day of the month. Thus why the feast of trumpets is scheduled for 2 days because the New moon must be sighted for it to begin. This is what a new moon looks like:
There is plenty of teaching on this. A quick Google search "feast of trumpets and hidden day" will give you a wealth of information about this feast.
But back to Amos 8. So we see in verse 5 that the feast of trumpets is connected to the context of the scripture because the sabbath and new moon is spoken about. We also should know that just as Yeshua fulfilled the spring feasts in the exact order that they are celebrated:
He was crucified on Passover
He was buried during the feast of unleavened bread
He rose on the feast of first fruits
The Holy Spirit was given on Pentecost!
Yeshua will likewise fulfill the fall feasts in order as well! Starting with the feast of trumpets, Day of atonement, and then the feast of tabernacles!
But there is even more in Amos. For look at how the people are wanting to go back to the good times of defrauding the people after the feast of trumpets is over in Amos 8:5-6
"Saying when will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?
6That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?"
In Ezekiel chapter 7, which is the prophecy of doom chapter, look at what 🤬 says in verse 12-13
"12The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof. 13For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof, which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life."
🤬 tells us that even if the people survive the day of sudden destruction, they will not go back to selling as they want to do in Amos 8:5-6! It is the day of the LORD! The rest of the chapter in Amos 8 describes how it begins. It starts at noon in Israel according to Amos 8:9 and Zephaniah 2:4! In America it will be nighttime! And just like ancient Babylon was conquered at night according to Daniel 5, so too will Babylon the Great be conquered at night!
There is much more but may you feed on this right now and have the LORD minister to your souls. Amen.
