4 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

John 14

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 4

2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling [rapture] away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

2 Thessalonians 2

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me;

Thank you @jasonacts177. It is good to hear from a sober and reasoned teacher like Dr. Woods. So many things are not in scripture at all. Some things are there but not clear on the face. When presenting it the way he did in this video, he shows that is a very important point. If we are basing our view of the Rapture, assuming the Tribulation immediately follows then we may be very far off base. Doesn’t mean the Rapture may not be within weeks or even months or days. It may well be, but it has always been that way since Jesus went to the right hand of God. But since we have no indication that the Tribulation immediately follows the Rapture or not, if we base our assumption on what we may think to be the timing of the end of Tribulation period then we may well be basing our view of the Rapture timing on information we have absolutely no clue to. Thank you so much for sharing this video.


Thanks Jason. Love Andy. I believe what might be hopeful in this is that we are looking at the rapture coming perrhaps sooner than too much clearer detail unfolds “looking” like a tribulation proper startup time. Andy holds that seal 2 is Ez 38. I agree with him there. I would say the rapture likely occurs right before the Ez 38 war. And that war extol: 1 Thes 5:3 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety ; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."

I would percieve what separates the rapture and trib is Ez 38. I have the Frankenstien view of the ttrib starting on S3, and “Peace and Safety being S1.” I would not think though that the rapture would be years before the tribulation because I guess i’m not all about neo escatological twister like as i am witth S1. In some respects i’m still very old school. Like thinking the rapture would be to lift people off earth from the tribulation. If we have a couple of new generations in between, I don’t know…that kind of kills the romance in it for me. :{ But that is my old fashioned “only hold hands” while dating perspective.

I believe though on the other hand…the notion that we don’t need to see enough occur for a more probable rapture some where way down the street from us, that from the looks of my S1 take, we are right there pretty much now…lol…potentially. So it could be any day, minute, second. Its alreading rolling. In me think–eese. Blessing.s


Pastor JD referred to Lahaina’s fire as the product of demonic posessed people who are destroying the world. Then he referenced this to Rev 11 which js set in the Trib and it states all the evil people who destroyed the world, will be
destroyed! Also emphaszining the destructio of world has begun with the covid vaxx poison killing milliond and now the horrific intentional and very much planned several years ago. Lahaona fire.
We know we are close to the Trib, so the rapture is even closer than we think.
Please, those who comment need to listen to JD;s update.


Since I learned of the Rapture not that many years ago, I’ve gone through a quick trip from denial to acceptance to trust that it’s going to happen and before the Tribulation starts. I’ve seldomly but not unwantingly thought about why no one knows the day or hour outside of why we’re told. I’ve had the thought process of two reasons.

  • Satan would try to either cancel it or make us so confused and lost in worldly issues that we wouldn’t be ready for it.

  • People would wait till that final few seconds to come to Christ all while living it up as a worldly carnal wicked person.

I don’t know about anyone else but to me, the latter makes far more sense.


Yes, the DPC’s ( demon possessed conspirators), sure are busy hurting people with their destruction! It’s so encouraging to hear the good rapture news from Pastor JD each week! I’m really glad that he addressed “getting people’s hopes up” like he did. I’ve been waiting for Jesus’appearing for 9 years now, since I really started learning about bible prophecy. He’s right, hope and longing only grow! I mean how can anybody love Jesus, but not be excited about seeing Him? Idk. I’ve shared the gospel with everyone i know, painted rocks and made little cards sharing the gospel and other scriptures and leave them on shelves at stores, at the park etc to quell the urgency that i feel daily, not to mention prayer. When it’s been another year or season or feast that goes by and the rapture hasn’t happened, it just takes it up a notch i think. What about you?


“But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.” Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

1 Peter 4:7-11


I really hope so even to the last second … it can be disheartening when you know time is short, but yet it seems like it falls on deaf ears. “But enough of my problems” Praying for many But God stories in Heaven!!


Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
James 4:7

In 2023, it will begin on the evening of Friday, September 15, and end at sundown on Sunday, September 17.

The Feast of Trumpets points to the Rapture – the last great harvest!

:open_book: Leviticus 23:23-25 : The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites: ‘On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts.

Beginning in the spring, the seven Jewish feasts are Passover (Pesach), the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Firstfruits, the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost), the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh HaShanah), the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), and the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot).

The Jewish feasts are closely related to Israel’s spring and fall harvests and agricultural seasons. They were to remind the Israelites each year of God’s ongoing protection and provision. But, even more importantly, they foreshadowed the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Not only did they play significant roles in Christ’s earthly ministry but they also symbolize the complete redemptive story of Christ, beginning with His death on the cross as the Passover Lamb and ending with His second coming after which He will “tabernacle” or dwell with His people forever.

While the four spring feasts look back at what Christ fulfilled at His first coming, the three fall feasts point us toward the glory of the second coming. The spring feasts are the source of our hope in Christ—His finished work of atonement for sins—and the fall feasts are the promise of what is to come—eternity with Christ. Understanding the significance of these God-appointed Jewish festivals helps us to better see and understand the complete picture and plan of redemption found in Scripture.

The next unfulfilled feast is the Feast of Trumpets!!

:open_book:Numbers 29:1 : On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the trumpets.

:pushpin:Jewish names and themes for this feast include:

1.Rosh HaShanah – ‘Head of the year’ / Tishrei 1 is the first day of the Jewish new year in their civil calendar. It is the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve.

2.Yom Teruah – ‘Day of Awakening Blast’ / Jewish belief is that the resurrection of the dead will occur on the feast of Trumpets.

3.The Last Trumpet – On this day, there are 100 trumpet blasts. The final, long, and most significant trumpet blast is called ‘the last trump’.

4.Yom Zikaron – ‘Day of Remembrance’ / A day on which the chosen people remember God, and God remembers them.

5.Yom Hadin – ‘Day of Judgment’ / God opens the books on that day and judges the righteous and the wicked according to what they had done.

6.Yom Hamelech – the Day of the Coronation of the King.

7.The time of Jacob’s trouble – There shall be great tribulation in Israel such as never was since there was a nation.

8.Yom Hakeseh – The Hidden Day / It was ‘hidden’ because they didn’t know the exact day it would begin due to the fact that it is the only feast that starts on a new moon. Thus it was a two day feast because they didn’t want to celebrate it on the wrong day. Concerning Rosh HaShanah, the Jews would typically say “Of that day and hour no one knows.”

9.The Opening of the Gates of Heaven / The Gate of Heaven is opened on Rosh HaShanah so the righteous nation may enter.

10.The Wedding of Messiah / The blowing of the heavenly trumpet is a call for the entire, true, bride of God to assemble together.

:open_book:Now, let’s review some scripture that corresponds to these names of the Feast of Trumpets…

1.Rosh HaShanah – ‘Head of the year’
:open_book:Psalm 89:15-18 : Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all day long,
And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength,
And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
For our shield belongs to the Lord,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.

2.Yom Teruah – ‘Day of Awakening Blast’
:open_book:Ephesians 5:14 : Therefore it is said: Get up, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and the Messiah will shine on you.

:open_book:Isaiah 26:19 :*Your dead will live; their bodies will rise.
Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust!
For you will be covered with the morning dew,
and the earth will bring out the departed spirits.

3.The Last Trumpet
:open_book:1 Corinthians 15:50-52 : I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.*

4.Yom Zikaron – ‘Day of Remembrance’
:open_book:Malachi 3:16-17: Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord
And who meditate on His name.

“They shall be Mine,” says the Lord of hosts,
“On the day that I make them My jewels.
And I will spare them
As a man spares his own son who serves him.”

5.Yom Hadin – ‘Day of Judgment’
:open_book:Revelation 17:8: The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up from the abyss and go to destruction. Those who live on the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast that was, and is not, and will be present again.

6.Yom Hamelech – the Day of the Coronation of the King
:open_book:Revelation 5

7.The time of Jacob’s trouble
:open_book:Matthew 24:3-8

8.Yom Hakeseh – The Hidden Day
:open_book:Psalm 27:5 : For in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock.

9.The Opening of the Gates of Heaven
Psalm 118:19-20 : Open the gates of righteousness for me;
I will enter through them
and give thanks to the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord;
the righteous will enter through it.

After this I looked, and there in heaven was an open door. The first voice that I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.”

:open_book:Revelation 4:1-3 *Immediately I was in the Spirit, and a throne was set there in heaven. One was seated on the throne, and the One seated looked like jasper and carnelian stone. A rainbow that looked like an emerald surrounded the throne.

10.The Wedding of Messiah
:open_book:1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 : According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord,will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

The Feast of Trumpets points to the Rapture – the last great harvest!!

Are we approaching the time when the heavenly trumpet will be heard?

Are you ready?

As this dispensation of the church age (The Age Of Grace) draws to an end, it’s time for us to take our stand as Children of the Light(1 Thessalonians) and tell a lost and dying world that it’s time to repent, believe the Gospel, and be converted to a new life in Jesus Christ today! Explain to them with simplicity (Not Religion) the gospel of our salvation (1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 10:9-10)!

Here is the article on my website…THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS!

As bro Chad( Watchman on the wall 88) always says…
Let us not cease to teach and preach that Jesus is at the door, !

God bless you
Watchman in the wilderness


I do not share the same prophetic scenario that Pastor Andy Woods has suggested and here is why:

“Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God”- Ezekiel 39:29.

The context revealed here is the aftermath of the Gog/Magog invasion. This outpouring of the Spirit of God on the House of Israel coincides with what the Prophet Joel records:

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit”.

"And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come. - Joel 2:28-31.

This outpouring of the Spirit of God upon Israel precedes the Time of Wrath and is the obvious transition from the Church to Israel to fulfill the prophecy recorded by the Prophet Daniel:

“Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy”- Daniel 9:24.

Knowing that this transition does not occur until the aftermath of the Gog/Magog invasion it further identifies the Church will be here to witness it’s fulfillment. It is clear that our bodily translation will coincide with this outpouring on Israel.

The Rapture or our “Snatching Away” will precede this great and terrible day of the Lord. Like Lot was told by the angels that the wrath upon the cities of the Plain could not be poured out until he and his family was removed from the city. How long was this wrath delayed? It was immediate.


Thank you Pastor J D Faraq, this was a phenomenal prophecy update and may you and your family be blessed as you have blessed those who did hear this message.


But I always thought that the rapture was compared to the Jewish wedding. If so, the bride is only hidden away in the bridal chamber for 7 days. Meaning that the gap between rapture and tribulation can’t be more than a year. I can see days or even a few months, but more than that takes away from the analogy.
