Prophecy Chart 2, click: Moedim
This chart features:
- What has happened, so far, according to the Moedim (appointed times), including the seven Jewish feasts, their prophetic meanings, and when/where/how they are observed and have been fulfilled by Jesus Christ.
- What Moedim have yet to be fulfilled, their meanings, and how they also refer to Jesus’ fulfillment–at some future point.
When will the remaining three prophecies that align with the Moedim be fulfilled and what will they look like? Many believe at least the next one, Yom Teruah, Day of Trumpets, will soon be revealed as the Rapture*. But whether it is this year, next, or an appointed time yet to come, we can only conjecture just now. In the meantime, this encouragement:
For still the vision awaits its appointed time (moed, singular of Moedim–appointed time, place, festival, feast…); it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay (Habakkuk 2:3). (emphasis, mine)
Claire and I encourage the reader to “do your own homework” like the Bereans who were praised for their close study of the Scriptures.
We also encourage you to resist the “normalcy bias” of believing things will always go on as they have always gone on.
If our God knows “the end from the beginning,” the thoughtful student of prophecy will consider that there are “ends” to epochs and eras in the spiritual realm even as such are evidenced in the natural realm.
May God bless and inspire you.
May we also impress upon you that the time may be very short until Jesus returns. If you have not yet received Him as your personal Lord and Savior, the time is right, now, for you. Ask Him into your life and your heart today.
*Note: the Rapture teaching is quite controversial in some quarters of Christendom; however, it is not a teaching that ought to raise anger, which serves no one. And whether or not one aligns with this teaching, it is not tantamount to a loss of salvation if one doesn’t. We will at length understand what we need to understand as God continues another of His patterns observed and experienced throughout history, that of deliverance from evil both beforehand and in the midst. Indeed, our hope in an event such as the Rapture, whatever its nature, is expressed as a hopeful event:
