Seven Days Left?

Has the Final Countdown for the Church’s Big Event Already Started?

First of all let me establish one important fact; I’m convinced the next thing for the church is the Rapture which could take place at any time! What I’m not convinced of is it taking place on September 21, 2017.

There is a great deal of speculation floating around on the web concerning September, 21st and 23rd of 2017. It focuses on some wording in Revelation 12, the alignment of the stars and planets and the possibility of this next Feast of Trumpets signaling the calling home of the church and the end of the Church Age on September 21, 2017.

On August 22, 2017 I wrote on this subject in some detail in my essay, Big Changes for September?. I concluded it with a Timeline for Unfulfilled Prophecy which I saw no need to revise based on current speculation. While I join with those who long for the Lord’s return for his church I have difficulty reconciling the timing of the Rapture with the various signs cited by those promoting September 21st and 23rd as significant dates for prophetic fulfillment.

The only thing that would make me happier than the Lord’s return for his church on the 21st would be his return on the 14th of September. While I know any of that is possible I will add that I am mailing in my quarterly tax payment for September.

I concluded that essay by saying we didn’t have long to wait to see what the Lord may have planned for The Feast of Trumpets, September 21, 2017; now we have even less time left, seven days and counting. Should the Lord tarry I’ll plan on sending out a prayer of praise and rejoicing to the Lord for all of God’s children on September 25th.

Update 9-17-2017

Now we have this which I noticed on Fox News yesterday:

Biblical prophecy claims the world will end on Sept. 23, Christian numerologists claim

The article concludes with the following quote:

“According to the Express, author Jonathan Sarfati wrote that the same planetary coincidence previously happened four times in the last millennium.

“As usual with any astrology (or Christian adaptations of it), one cherry-picks the stars that fit the desired conclusion,” Sarfati wrote, according to the Express. “There is nothing to suggest that 23 September is a momentous date for biblical prophecy, and Christians need to be careful about being drawn into such sensationalist claims.”

As I have written before I am confident the Bible tells us the earth has at least 1,007 years to go before “the end.” Although I am not familiar with the works of author Jonathan Sarfati I do agree with his conclusions in this matter.
