It should be evident to today’s believers that if they do not understand Jesus the Christ or the Apostle Paul’s Hebraic roots, then these believers never will fully comprehend many of the Rosh Hashanah (Yom Teruah or the Fall Feast of Trumpets’) idioms/expressions that Jesus the Christ and the Apostle Paul use when they speak about the “Last Days” and “End Times.” For the record, there are at least 12 or 13 traditional Rosh Hashanah idioms (ancient names and/or expressions the Jewish people used to explain the spirit or real meaning of Rosh Hashanah). Of the 12 or 13 familiar Rosh Hashanah idioms, Jesus the Christ references at least two of them when He says, “No one knows, however, when that day and hour will come neither the angels in heaven nor the Son; the Father alone knows” (Matthew 24:36, GNT)—these referenced idioms are Yom HaKeseh (Hidden Day/Day of Hiding or Day of Concealment) and Kiddushin/Nesu’in (The Messiah’s Wedding Ceremony). Now, the Lord’s Matthew 24:36 prophecy follows the verses in which Jesus the Christ is telling us that just like any Hebrew would know with certainty that the time when figs are their ripest is during the summer harvest time, which for ancient Israel was in the summer months of late August and early September (Elul and Tishri), then we New Testament believers should know with certainty the sign that would precede the Lord’s bodily Second Coming (cf. Mathew 24:32-35). This sign, believe it or not, is wrapped up, tied up, and tangled up in every one of the Jewish idioms for Rosh Hashanah!
The good news is that the end-time future of Egypt, Assyria and Israel, for example, is going to be glorious. These three nations for centuries have been enemies, but in a God-orchestrated ironic twist they all will be allies in an end time Messianic League. The bad news is that Egypt, Edom, Moab, Ammon, and every other Gentile nation that has rebelled against God is going to be punished, some before and some after Armageddon. Indeed, even though the Little Horn, ten horns, and other Tribulation nations/populations might survive the Tribulation, this good news will be trumped by the bad news that the saints will be separated from the ain’ts!
If we all are going to die one type of death or another (physical and/or spiritual), if we all are going to lose EVERYTHING that we have acquired in this life, then what is there for us to lose if we believe the Word of God for all that the Holy Bible promises us? Why not secure our eternal place in Heaven with God rather than secure our everlasting place in the Lake of Fire with Satan and his demons? Why don’t we choose this day whether we will serve God or serve Satan’s corrupt economic, political, and religious systems?
