Q. I believe what you’ve said about the Second Coming possibly being on the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashana) in 2018 based on what Jesus said about no one knowing “the day or hour”, the darkness of the world and a lifespan being about 70 years. What I’m wondering, since the Rapture comes 7 years before that (I understand what you’ve said about the Rapture being number specific and not time specific) if it doesn’t come before the end of 2011, would we be correct in watching for it in 2012, and then the Second Coming would be in 2019, etc., etc.?
A. I believe I’ve presented a strong circumstantial case for a 2018 2nd Coming, but it’s only an opinion based on my research. And while I believe that the 2nd Coming will be the prophetic fulfillment of the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah) it’s also just an opinion. Jesus said no one will know the day or hour of His coming in advance. Where the rapture is concerned, it could happen any day now and there are still 131 opportunities for it to happen in 2011, slightly over 1/3rd of a year. I think it’s too early to start speculating about what we should do if it doesn’t.
