I now believe that the October 13 God was referring to was 2015, and I now believe that the significance was that God was pointing me to the new moon and the timing of the Holy Days on HIS calendar, not man's, and that the Shemitah and the Jubilee will conclude and commence, (respectively) in late October and the Fall Feast Days will conclude by November 5 (see the previous post).
"Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand." (Daniel 12:9-10)
"Now on the topic of times and seasons, brothers and sisters, you have no need for anything to be written to you. For you know quite well that the day of Yahusha will come in the same way as a thief in the night. Now when they are saying, "There is peace and security," then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will surely not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in the darkness for the day to overtake you like a thief would. For you all are sons of the light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of the darkness. So then we must not sleep as the rest, but must stay alert and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But since we are of the day, we must stay sober by putting on the breastplate of faith and love and as a helmet our hope for salvation." (1 Thessalonians 5:1-8).
MUST READ: NO MORE DRESS REHEARSAL, THE FALL FEASTS ARE GOING LIVE!!!
Yom Teru'ah (a.k.a. Rosh Hashanah) "Day of the Awakening Blast"
w/ info on The Association of the Trumpet Blast With the Appearance of Yahuwah in the Old Testament; The Association of the Trumpet Blast with the Return of Messiah in the New Testament; Jesus' parabolic statement / riddle ""No One Knows the Day or Hour;" and Daniel's Prophecy of the Resurrection
The appointed day of the teruah has been a mystery for centuries - yea - millennia. We have discovered that this day was to be a rehearsal or foreshadowing of the great day when, at the blowing of trumpets and with a loud shout (teruah), Yahusha the Messiah is to come down from heaven and resurrect all those who have died after faithfully serving him in covenant relationship.

WITH THE FALL-FEAST SEASON STILL UPON US,* I thought it would be fun/edifying to do a few posts featuring the reasons some consider the Feast of Tabernacles a prime candidate for the Rapture. As always, such info is submitted merely as food for thought.
REASON #1—RAPTURED SAINTS WITH PALM BRANCHES IN THEIR HANDS:
Revelation 7 pictures the just-raptured saints rejoicing before the Lord with palm branches in their hands:
“After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude… standing before the throne and before the Lamb…holding palm branches in their hands” (Rev. 7:9).
The only feast ordained by God as a time to rejoice before the Lord with “palm branches” is the Feast of Tabernacles:
“[At the Feast of Tabernacles], when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land...ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees…and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days” (Lev. 23:39-40).
REASON #2—THE THIRD DAY:
Scripture depicts the “third day” as a time of resurrection:
“After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence” (Hos. 6:2).
“He [Jesus] was buried, and… rose again the third day…” (1 Cor. 15:4).
In view of the notion that the “third day” is a time of resurrection, it’s interesting to note that the Feast of Tabernacles is the THIRD of the fall feasts. The Feast of Tabernacles is also the THIRD of the only three feasts God identifies as the times when every man must appear before Him in Jerusalem:
“Three times a year all your men must appear before the Lord your God in the place he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles” (Deut. 16:16).
REASON #3—FIRST STOP: SUKKOT:
When the Children of Israel first left Egypt in the Exodus (a prophetic picture of God’s people leaving “the world”), their first camping place was “Sukkot,” the Hebrew designation for the Feast of Tabernacles: **
“Then the sons of Israel journeyed from Rameses, and camped in Sukkot” (Num. 33:5).
More to come in following posts!
Again, the purpose of posts like this is not to fuel expectation around a certain date, or dates, but simply to keep focus on the fact that we are in that season. That things have, so far, not unfolded as many expected them to in no way diminishes the reality of where we are on God’s calendar—namely in a jubilee year.
For this reason, I believe it’s wise to keep an open mind with respect to the feasts. The fact that the Rapture and Second Coming occur at opposite ends of the Tribulation opens the door to possible multiple fulfillments or twists and turns perhaps not so obvious, before the fact. In other words, while the Lord has indeed given us the “roadmap,” we know that not every minor bend, dip, or rise in a road shows up on a map. smile emoticon
