Q. I wanted to know if you have been receiving questions that a possible major “event” would take place between September 16-18 2012, Rosh Hashanah. I’ve seen many articles and blogs where people identifying themselves as “watchers” believe these dates will be very significant. I’ve read everything from the Rapture,to the invasion of Syria and even an extraterrestrial event speculated for this time. Any thoughts or feelings about these new dates?
Q. Re: The Last Eight Days, Part 3: In the paragraph regarding Sunday, 17 Nisan. The Resurrection, The Feast of First Fruits – I was wondering why there is a celebration of First Fruits of a harvest when it is spring and we normally think of a harvest happening in the fall. What is the sample of the harvest that the priest is bringing to the Temple to be dedicated?
Q. I know we’ve chatted before about the Rapture occurring on Pentecost, and I’ve read the great article you wrote on the subject. But I still think the Lord showed me the Rapture will happen on Pentecost. I continue to agree with you that the Rapture may be a number-specific event not tied to a Feast, but it seems to me that there’s some unfinished business with Pentecost.
Q. When and why did Jewish rabbis start celebrating the Passover Seder after sundown on 15 Nisan, which is the Feast of Unleavened Bread?
Q. I believe you are correct in that when a certain number is saved the rapture will take place. A lot of events have taken place on feast days. Why couldn’t the rapture happen on a feast day? God would know when the number would come up and make sure it would happen on a feast day.

In 2011 Passover was celebrated beginning at sunset on April 18. On the Hebrew calendar sunset marked the beginning of the 14th day of Nisan. No matter what day of the week it happens to be, Passover always comes on the 14th of Nisan. It’s like Christmas in that regard, which always comes on the 25th of December no matter what day of the week. “What’s that got to do with Pentecost?” you ask.
Q. I’ve read your article titled ‘No One knows the Day or the Hour’ and I agree that they refer to the Second Coming and I also understand that 2018 is neither a day or an hour. But what I was wondering is what exactly is Rosh Hashanah and why do you think it will be when Christ will return? Also, is we can predict the day that Rosh Hashanah will fall in 2018, wouldn’t that mean we would know that day of His return? I simply want to get the clear picture so I can be a better witness.
Q. I agree with you concerning the day of the Lord’s death on the Cross was Thursday. My question is, why do we call Friday, “Good Friday?” Even if the day of death was Friday, why would it be called good?

Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey (Zechariah 9:9).
Q. I have been trying to understand the timing of the Feasts of First Fruits and Pentecost. Reading Leviticus 23 has confused me since they seem to be related more to harvest times than specific dates. Did they float around depending on the harvests or did they come at specific times on the calendar?
