The Time of the Great World Revival
Three times a year, at three special Feasts of the LORD in Leviticus 23 all the men of Israel were commanded to come up to Jerusalem and celebrate before the LORD God of Israel. These three feasts were Passover during the time of barley harvest, Shavuot or Pentecost, during the time of the spring wheat harvest, and the Feast of Tabernacles, or Succoth, during the fall wheat harvest.
Exodus 23:14 “Three times you shall keep a feast to Me in the year: 23:15 You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread (you shall eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt; none shall appear before Me empty); 23:16 and the Feast of Harvest, the firstfruits of your labors which you have sown in the field; and the Feast of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labors from the field. 23:17 Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord GOD.”
Exodus 34:23 “Three times in the year all your men shall appear before the Lord, the LORD God of Israel. 34:24 For I will cast out the nations before you and enlarge your borders; neither will any man covet your land when you go up to appear before the LORD your God three times in the year.”
Deuteronomy 16:16 “Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God in the place which He chooses: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Tabernacles; and they shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed.”
Two of these three major Feasts of the LORD in Leviticus 23 have already been fulfilled. Unleavened Bread, with Yeshua’s Crucifixion at Passover. And also Shavuot during the time of the firstfruits of the spring wheat harvest. Shavuot has been fulfilled twice by God, first when God came down on Mount Sinai, and gave the children of Israel the 10 Commandments, 50 days after Moses led the 12 tribes of Israel out of Egypt; and then 50 days after Yeshua’s ascension to Heaven with the outpouring of Holy Spirit on Yeshua’s 120 disciples in the Upper Room in Jerusalem.
But the greatest of these three harvest Feasts of the LORD is still yet to be fulfilled, the Feast of Tabernacles, or Succoth!
We are heading into the season of the great End Time fall Harvest of the earth beginning with the Feasts of Trumpets, Yom Kippur, and then Tabernacles. This will then lead into the world’s Greatest Revival beginning soon from Jerusalem. This will last for a few years. More will be shared in this paper about this Revival.
The Wedding of the Lamb Yeshua and His Bride will soon take place in Heaven on a future 5th Feast of Trumpets, followed by a one year honeymoon in Heaven. Then the Lord Yeshua will return to earth with His Bride on the 6th Feast of the LORD, the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. The Feast Day of Atonement is also known as the Day of Final Judgment: it is the most Holy Day of all the 7 Feasts of the LORD for many important reasons …
The Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur is only atonement for those who have repented for all of their sins and have accepted Yeshua as their Messiah, making Him their Savior and Lord, receiving Yeshua’s Sacrifice of Him freely giving His Life and Blood in exchange for our sinful life. That Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, will also be the Day of Final Judgment for those who have refused Yeshua’s atoning Sacrifice for all their sins!
Yom Kippur is the Day of the LORD!
For on that most Holy Day, the Feast of Yom Kippur, Yeshua will be returning from Heaven with His Wife, His Bride at the end of the last year of Daniel’s 70th Week. For on that Day, Yeshua will single handedly destroy all His enemies who are still alive on earth waiting for Him to return, in order to try to destroy Him as He returns. Yeshua, the King of Heaven, the King of Glory, is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, also the LORD of hosts! (Psalm 24:10) He will burn up with fire all those evil men and all the demons, and also purify the entire planet, both the heavens and the earth as He returns, reclaiming this planet earth for mankind, which He had purchased with His death. This planet had originally been given to Adam. All this happens on the Day of the LORD! Read Isaiah 29:1-8; Isaiah 31:4,5; Joel 2:1-11; Zechariah 12:2-9; Zechariah 14:1-5;
But also as Yeshua returns from Heaven with His Bride and the rest of His believing ‘born again’ armies, He will sound the Last Trump. That last trumpet is also known as the Great Trumpet! Yeshua’s last Shofar blast is found in 7 different Scriptures in both the Old and the New Covenant: Read Zechariah 9:14; Isaiah 18:3; Isaiah 27:12, 13 (the Great Trump); Matthew 24:27-31(the Great Trumpet); Mark 13:24-27; 1st Thessalonians 4:15-17 (caught up); 1st Corinthians 15:51-54 (the Last Trumpet); and Ephesians 1:10.
That last Shofar blast will be sounded in the heavens over the earth as Yeshua returns from Heaven with His Bride and the rest of His believing armies. When He sounds that last Trump blast, it will instantly cause the gathering together of all His believers into His Presence, both those still alive on the earth with those coming with Him from Heaven, all being gathered and united together into His Presence in the heavens above the earth as He returns.
That’s the real Truth about believers who are still alive on the earth being ‘caught up’ with Yeshua in the clouds as He returns. (1st Thessalonians 4:17) There will never be believers taken off the earth in Pre Trib Rapture, simply because there’s no Pre Trib Rapture! That bible teaching is a great deception, which will soon be exposed when the anti Christ’s appears in Israel as a world Peace maker at the end of the coming Gog Magog War.
In biblical times 2000 years ago, when the Jerusalem Temple was up and functioning, the high priest of Israel on the one holy day of the year, on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, would enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple with the blood sacrifices of both a ram and a goat, which he would sprinkle on the east side of the Mercy Seat on top of the Ark of the Covenant. The high priest did this to receive God’s blessings of forgiveness for one year for his own sins, for the sins of the other Aaronic priests, and for the sins of the people of Israel.
It will be on that same Day in Heaven, the Day of Atonement, on Yom Kippur, in only just a few years from now, that Yeshua, the Great High Priest of Heaven will leave Heaven with His Wife to return to earth, and also physically save those believers who are still alive on earth, and also provide Atonement for them who have called on Yeshua to be their Lord and Savior, and to forgive them from all of their sins. He will save them on that special Day of Yom Kippur from all their enemies. It will be on that same Day that Yeshua will single handedly destroy all of His enemies on the earth as He returns with His believing armies, and all His angelic hosts.
After that He will begin to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on the earth. This will start with the celebration of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb to be held in Jerusalem on that great fall harvest festival, the Feast of Tabernacles, the Feast of Succoth!
God has told us much about Yom Kippur, the 6th biblical Feast. Leviticus 23:26 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 23:27 “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD. 23:28 And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God. 23:29 For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. 23:30 And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. 23:31 You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 23:32 It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.”
In Revelation 19:11-21, we read about our King – High Priest Yeshua returning to earth with His Wife and His armies, after His Wedding with His Wife (His Bride) who had made Herself ready. Revelation 19:7 (followed by a one year honeymoon.) This will all happen on the Day of Atonement, on Yom Kippur!
Revelation 19:11 Now I saw Heaven opened, and behold, a whitehorse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 19:12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 19:13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in Blood, and His name is called The Word of God! 19:14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 19:15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp Sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and Wrath of Almighty God. 19:16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written, King of Kings and LORD of Lords. 19:17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, 19:18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 19:20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 19:21 And the rest were killed with the Sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
When and where does the Marriage of Yeshua and His Bride happen? Their Marriage will happen in Heaven on the 5th Feast of Trumpets, seen in Revelation 19:7 and in Revelation 11:15, 18;
It happens at the beginning of the last year of Daniel’s 70th Week. This will be near the end of anti-Christ’s reign of terror on earth.
John 8:31 Then Yeshua said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. 8:32 And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.”
The seven years of Daniel’s 70th Week are divided as follows:
The first 2 ½ years will be the years of the Great World Revival and the Great End Time Harvest of souls. Then one year before the middle of the last 7 years, the 2 witnesses will begin their 3 ½ years of ministry. They will be totally untouchable by anti Christ until they finish. They will have proclaimed that King Yeshua, the Son of God is also Israel’s true Savior and Messiah. But as the Son of Man Yeshua died, offering His perfect body and His sinless Blood for all the sins of the peoples of the earth, and also for the earth itself. After they are killed and ascend up to Heaven, the anti Christ will still be reigning on the earth until his end.
These two witnesses are killed, rise from the dead, and ascend up to Heaven (Revelation 11:12) after an earthquake kills 7000 people in Jerusalem. Only then do the religious Jews in Jerusalem give Glory to the God of Heaven. More specifically, that’s when the Israeli Orthodox religious Jews in Jerusalem (Revelation 11:13) finally cry out to Yeshua, “Baruch Haba Bashem Yeshua Adonai!” That will bring the Lord’s return! “You will not see Me again till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’ ”
That happens just before the seventh angel sounds the seventh trumpet in Revelation 11:15. Those two witnesses may also be the two best men at Yeshua’s Wedding in Heaven. They minister for 3 1/2 years in Jerusalem, and then they go up to Heaven shortly after Yeshua had Roared like a Lion. (Revelation 10:3) For the remnant Bride goes up to Heaven at that Roar of the Lion (Revelation 10:3) only a few months earlier, to have completed Yeshua’s Bridal party in preparation for Yeshua’s Wedding. The Marriage of the Lamb will take place exactly as prophesied. Revelation 10:7 and 11:15.
The anti-Christ’s reign of terror will begin from Jerusalem about the middle of Daniel’s 70th Week, and will last the 3 ½ years of the Great Tribulation until Messiah returns. The two witnesses will have begun their ministry one year prior, which puts the event of the 7th trumpet of the seventh angel of Revelation 11:15, (the Wedding of Yeshua and His Wife [His Bride] in Heaven), around the beginning of the 7th year. After their Wedding, (Revelation 11:15) Yeshua and His Bride will spend a one year honeymoon in Heaven. Deuteronomy 24:5, talks about a one year honeymoon.
The same time this Wedding ceremony ends in Heaven, the Wrath of God will be released from Heaven specifically targeting the anti Christ’s Kingdom, with all his evil ones on the earth. (Revelation 11:18) That will end on the Day of the LORD! See Isaiah 34:5 “For My Sword shall be bathed in heaven; indeed it shall come down on Edom, and on the people of My curse, for judgment. 34:6 The Sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made over-flowing with fatness, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. 34:7 The wild oxen shall come down with them, and the young bulls with the mighty bulls; their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust saturated with fatness. 34:8 For it is the Day of the LORD’s Vengeance, the year of recompense for the cause of Zion!
Isaiah 63:1 Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One who is glorious in His apparel, traveling in the Greatness of His Strength? “I who speak in Righteousness, Mighty to save.” 63:2 Why is Your apparel red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress? 63:3 “I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with Me. For I have trodden them in My anger, and trampled them in My fury; Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, and I have stained all My robes. For the Day of Vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come!”
God’s Wrath will be released specifically to save God’s elect who are still alive on the earth, in order to shorten the days of the anti Christ’s murdering of God’s people on the earth. That Wrath of God ends one year later on Yom Kippur, on the 6th Feast of the LORD, when Lord Yeshua returns with His Bride and the rest of His armies from Heaven, destroying all of His enemies on the Day of the LORD, and also cleansing both the heavens above and also the whole earth from all its evil, at Yeshua’s 2nd coming.
Revelation 14:19 So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the Wrath of God. 14:20 And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.
And on that Day Yeshua will first save those believers who are still alive on the earth, who will all be instantly be caught up with Him and all the other believers in the air in the heavens, as He is returning with His Bride, His Wife, and all the other saints who have been with Him in Heaven. That happens immediately after King–High Priest Yeshua sounds that Last Trump, the Shofar Gadol, His last Great Shofar call over the earth!
That is also the exact moment in time when another one of the great Miracle’s of Yeshua will happen instantaneously, which is mentioned in four different Scriptures in John 6. This is when all the believers will receive their Glorified Bodies!
John 6:39 “This is the will of My Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 6:40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have Everlasting Life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 6:44 No one can come to Me unless My Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 6:54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My Blood has Eternal Life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
And all that will happen on God’s true Year of Jubilee!
Leviticus 25:8 “ ‘And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. 25:9 Then you shall cause the shofar of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the shofar to sound throughout all your land. 25:10 And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. 25:11 That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you!
Zechariah 12:8 In that Day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of the LORD before them. 12:9 It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. 12:10 “And I will pour on the House of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced! Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”
The Seventh Day of the LORD is God’s Day of Rest!
Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. 2:3 Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Hebrews 4:9 There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. 4:10 For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. 4:11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.
Only after Yeshua has destroyed all His enemies on the earth at His return will He then begin the preparations for the 7th Feast of the LORD, the Feast of Tabernacles, Succoth, by hosting with His Wife the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. That event is a very different event from the Marriage of the Lamb which had been previously held in Heaven. That event will be held in Jerusalem with Yeshua and His Wife and all of their special invited Guests!
Revelation 19:9 “Blessed are those (the Saved and ‘born again’ Guests) who are called to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.”
Then the Lord Yeshua will come and serve His servants whom He rescued from the earth at His return, those who had endured long and remained faithful to Him on earth until He returned.
“But he who endures to the end will be saved!” Matthew 10:22; Mathew 24:13; Mark 13:13
