UPDATE-Is the Feast of Trumpets – Is Rosh HaShanah 2012 the beginning of…the end times?

Is the fall Feast of Trumpets or Yom Kippur of 2012 God’s Warning to His people?.

This years Feast of Trumpets could be the biggest history making time this year.

Is the official start of the tribulation going to be during September of 2012?

God has always warned His people before He executes His judgment. During these end times we are going to see many warnings and many judgments upon the unrepentant people. God warned the people before the great Flood, and He warned Niniveh before it was ruined. The Feast of Trumpets reflects God’s desire to summon His people to repentance so they can be spared His judgment.

Rosh Hashanah or the Jewish New Year is called the Feast of Trumpets in the Bible, because it begins with the Jewish Fall Holy Days and Ten Days of Awe or Repentance. And the blowing of the shofar, The purpose of the Days of Awe are to call God’s people to repent from their sins. Thus many refer to it as the time for repentance. Rosh Hashanah is also the start of the civil New Year inIsrael. It is a solemn day of reflection. A time for accepting God’s forgiveness and repentance and remembering God’s mercy and judgments.Because a replay will be happening soon.

When is Rosh Hashanah?

Rosh Hashanah is celebrated on the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei, which this year is September 17-18..

The Feast of Trumpets is stated in the Old Testament book of Leviticus 23:23-25 and also in Numbers 29:1-6.

The Feast of Trumpets starts on the first day of Tishrei. Which this year is Sept. 17. But it does not start until the Shofar is blown. The Shofar is blown as soon as two appointed priests can see the needed signs from heaven. Thus the bible saying “No one knows the day or the hour.” Because it could start on either the first or second day of this Feast.

About Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets:

The Feast of Trumpets begins with Rosh Hashanah. The solemnizations continue for Ten Days of Repentance, culminating on Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. On this final day of the High Holy Days, Jewish tradition tells how God opens the Book of Life and studies the words, actions, and thoughts of every person whose name he has written there. If a person’s good deeds outweigh or outnumber their sinful acts, his or her name will remain inscribed in the book for another year.

So, Rosh Hashanah and the Ten Days of Repentance provide God’s people with a time for reflection, turning away from sin. It is also a time for God’s judgement

Jesus and Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is also known as the Day of Judgment. At the Final Judgment spoken of in Revelation 20:15, we read that “anyone whose name was not found recorded in the Book of Life was thrown into the lake of fire.

John 5:24tells us, Truly, truly, I say to you, He who hears My Word and believes on Him who sent Me has everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation, but has passed from death to life.

Therefore, Jesus becomes through our acceptance of his sacrifice and atonement for sin, the fulfillment of this Old Testament feast.

Over the last six thousand years almost all and we mean “almost all”, significant religious events in the world have happened on one of the Jewish Holy Days. Christ’s birth. Christ’s crucifixion, Israel’s six day war and the UN declaration of the new country of Israel all happened on one of these Holy Days. It only stands to reason that an event as significant as the second coming of our Lord would happen at this time  also. As we shall see…we are warned. 

I urge you to pray about this and prepare your soul. Please refer to An Enduring Faith catagory of posts/

God is not going to abbandon His children.

Will the tribulation start on or around the Feast of Trumpets? Very possibly. The signs and our sensed season all point toward the tribulation could be starting very, very soon. But we must always remember, none of us have ever gone through anything like this before. It is a time in human history that is a first for everyone. The best scholars can differ about much of this discussion. We are all just doing our best, hopefully led by the Holy Spirit. The ministry of The Joseph Plan isn’t setting a projected date for the start of the last big event. We won’t even try to guess at the year. But I am suggesting that we should all examine ourselves, straighten our act out and consider this September as the beginning of something very special. God’s judgements are a very serious thing.

Below you find two videos by Mark Bitz. Mark does a wonderful job explaining the Jewish Holy Days and the importance of the fall feasts as they relate to today.

Mark Bitz introduces us to the Jewish roots and understanding of the Jewish Holy days. With an emphasis on the Feast of Trumpets.


Mark Bitz teaching about the importance of understanding “The Feast of Trumpets”. A MUST WATCH!

Moses Nahmanides, explains the difference between the two feasts-Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. He states. “Rosh Hashanah is a day of judgment with mercy and Yom Kippur is a day of mercy with judgment.”

The Feast of Trumpets informs us that God will judge us with mercy, while the Day of Atonement signifies that is God alone who will atone for or redeem us from our sins with justice.

Please pray about this information. God may be speaking to you right now. It is time for all of us to make peace. Peace with God. Which can only be done through the Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, make peace with God. Surrender to Him and His ways. Then and only then will you be able to make true peace with yourself, with God’s help. That is through repentance and salvation. Then and only then you will be able to make peace with all other people, places or events in your life. We serve an Awesome God. It appears like it is time to get serious about what is going on in God’s realm.

Ezek 7:8  And I will soon pour out My fury on you, and fulfill My anger on you. And I will judge you according to your ways, and will repay you for all your abominations.

1John 4:4 You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Psalm 91:22 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

Through Him, We will overcome.

In prayer the Lord will guide you. Please give the above information good prayerful consideration.

Through An Enduring Faith and in the hands and through the mouth of a true believer mountains can truly be moved.

My friend, Are you confident where you are going to spend eternity when this all ends? There is an end for all of us some day. Some of us maybe today.

There is only one way to know and be assured– Ask our Father in heaven in Jesus Christs’ name in prayer today!

Are You Saved from damnation, the eternal fate of so many? Are you sure? Ask Him. Find out and be assured.

Rom 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that  we are the children of God.

When we ask the Lord, in Jesus Christ’s name, He assures us with His peace and understanding. If for any reason you question your salvation, go to a quiet place, alone, and talk to Jesus. Repent of your sins and commit your life to Him. Then go to a bible believing church and get baptized.

He is faithful! He always listens and always responds!

The Salvation Prayer (click here) is in the Blog in the right column of this page. You can walk without fear. Start nurturing An Enduring Faith, today.


Visit the Joseph Plan Blog and be blessed. There are scores of articles for you to enjoy.

‘Tis better to fear God now, than to miss the mark for an eternity! Thomas

May God Bless You and keep you safe from the evil one!

    Casey, We are studying the possibility of offering selected topical books and DVDs that match our biblical commitment and understandings.That is a big job however and my plate is so full right now. But it is a great idea.

    Many small ministries have a book store to help raise some needed funds and do ever need that. The Joseph Plan is a small ministry run totally by my wife and I, with the help of a few volunteers.

    you could be of great assistance today by praying for the ministry to receive about $800 a month in financial help. With just my disability income we have very poor equipment and eat an awful lot of noodle dishes. But we signed up for this and appreciate everything the Lord provides.

    If anyone has suggestions we would appreciate them. I have some favorite book and DVDs that I would love helping to promote..

    God Bless and welcome.

    Is there any dvd’ I can buy over the subjets
    Thank you
    so much info to rejoice over

    Update on the time line for the release of ” the Rapture ForeWarning Advisory”.
    It turned into a lot bigger project than we had anticipated. We will have the bugs worked out sometime this weekend, according to the men that have come to our aid with their website technology experience.

    Their help is proving to be such a blessing. It sounds simple to put something on the website that can be downloaded, but as I have found out, there is a lot more to it than I originally imagined.

    The “Rapture ForeWarning Advisory” will bless you and your family. There is a lot of information available on “surviving until then. Whenever “then” is. This deals with the more important issue of taking some time right now to put your spiritual house in order.

    The “Rapture ForeWarning Advisory” delves into the question-Who will be taken and who will be left behind. That is according to the Word of God, not necessarily according to your particular church or pastor.

    The American Christian community HAS BEEN DECEIVED.You and I don’t have to be. You can “Be Assured” that you will be on the first flight out of here. (On the Rapture flight.) By simply following the Word of God that He so freely gave us.

    This Believers Paper will absolutely be a blessing for all the regulars of this ministry. Not only your immediate family but you can use the link to the main download page to spread the word to your loved ones and friends also. . It is a call to “Examine Oneself!”

    Here is the link to send to all your family, loved ones and anyone else you can get it to.


    God Bless,
    Pastor Thomas Holm

  4. ministry says:

    Everyone I know is still a project. But that is a good thing, I guess. It’s called humility.

    Big Announcement. Tonight or tomorrow the “Rapture ForeWarning Advisory” will be available
    on the page entitled “Can a Christian be disqualified from the Rapture”?

    God’s love,
    Pastor Thomas

  5. Dan says:

    Thank you brother! I really enjoyed the videos!

    By the way….. I NVERE maik mastackes!

    I suppose it’s one of the Lord’s ways to keep us humble!

    🙂 Press on and keep looking up!

  6. ministry says:

    Thanks Dan. Once again we proved our humanness. One thing about writing on a Blog or I guess anywhere on the internet. When you make a mistake it hangs right out there for all to see.

    But thanks again Dan.

    The “Rapture ForeWarning Advisory” should be available for everyone on Thursday or Friday.

    It’s been over two months in the making. Right now it is fifteen pages and packed with biblical references.

    God Bless,

  7. Dan says:

    One of the most telling signs ( I believe ) is Matthew 24:14 where Jesus TELLS US when the end will come.
    I have had this in my heart for some time now and, knowing that the reason for all this technological explosion was to be for the spreading of the Gospel into ALL the world for a witness.
    The time is surely upon us and our redemption draweth nigh!
    How exciting and wonderful to look for that day of His appearing!
    Thank you for this site and I will surely watch the videos this week.

    I look foward to meeting you all in the air!

    Come Lord Jesus, come!

  8. Dan says:

    Interesting indeed.
    In one of your references above, you state Psalm 91:22 which is incorrect, it should be Psalm 91:2

    Come Lord Jesus, come!

  9. ministry says:

    Thank-you Barbara. A major part of our mission is the strengthening and edification of all believers. You have been included and will be contacted as soon as it is up. That will be a number of weeks however. First we need to accumulate a starting group of The Joseph Plan regulars. Secondly. with Sept 17th – 26th coming upon us so fast, I honestly don’t have the time to put it up just yet.

    But be assured. It will happen in our Lords time.

    May God Bless and keep you safe.


  10. Barbara Inglis says:

    I pray that you will be so generous as to include me in your coming special information section for regulars only. Many thanks for your wonderful site, filled with love for Jesus and encouragement for those of us who serve and worship Him! God bless you…Barbara

  11. ministry says:

    Thank-you so very much Brother Steve. You have provided the body with a wonderful testimony.

    Most of our spirits are telling us the same thing. We all know that Jesus is returning real soon. As Christians we have the inside information. We are all receiving basically the same memo from God. We are getting the final call. The Holy Spirit is leading us. The Holy Spirit is directing us. And He is confirming that, yes, Jesus is coming back…. very, very soon.

    The biblical riddle that has baffled biblical scholars for centuries can now be seen clearly.

    Us not “knowing the day or the hour” means that WE WILL KNOW the season.

    The Joseph Plan believes and proclaims that our Lord will be returning during the Feast of Trumpets. That means that the Tribulation will also be starting during this season. Does that signify the Rapture happening during the third week in September? We shall see. If it does we will meet in Abraham’s bosom or side (Luke 16:22,23, John 13:23 and Matt 8:11) very soon.

    The season is now coming upon us. Please prepare your souls everyone. Our world, as we know it, is about to change.

    Thank-you again Steve.

    God Bless,

    Steve Steinman writes:

    My Dear, Dear Brother in the Lord,

    Oh how I love you!!! Please know God almighty is using your life and ministry. I have the same warning message BURNING in my entire being. I feel like the young boy crying wolf. Jesus is coming! I truly believe AT THE APPOINTED TIME (Feast of Trumpets). I can’t see past this next feast day. I have many times thought he was coming on other Rosh ha Shana’s. I cried out in 1988, Jesus is coming! And only a small maybe. Time after time I cried out Jesus is coming! Many times I have warned about Rosh ha Shana. I know this is the correct feast. It is a matter of which one. God has used this to give each person in each generation hope of his return in their lifetime. He used the phrase “No man know’s the day or the hour” to keep our lamps full and burning. That being said, I can see no restriction upon knowing the exact Rosh ha Shana. Even if I knew the exact Feast of Trumpets, I still COULD NOT KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR. I believe with all my heart HE IS COMING NOW!

    My health and income was attacked by satan these last 3 years and God allowed it to refine and test me. Praise God! I have no desire for ANYTHING THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER. I only want to see Jesus, and to hear him say, you are the least of the well done’s, but well done good and faithful servant enter into the joy of the Lord.

    I have no money. NOTHING! I am completely broke and must depend entirely upon the Lord the meet the needs of each day. I am therefore so privileged to be allowed to become richer in faith. Please know this. I have never met you, but I love you! I will look for you on the other side most likely sooner than later.

    Stay bold in the faith!

    Oh, I asked the Lord about 1988. I spoke to the writer of the book back then after the Lord did not return. I can tell you for sure he could not understand why the Lord did not come. He later determined he had made a calculation error regarding BC/AD. Therefore he felt 1989. This man suffered so greatly for sharing the warning. I suffered from sharing the warning too. Anyway, I asked the Lord. Why? Here was my answer. This man was a type and shadow of Jeremiah.

    His warning went out with a sense of urgency and with great ridicule after the fact. 25 years later it came true. The warning was received and went out in 1987. David Flynn’s book “the Temple at the Center of Time” confirms 2012. It has been 45 years since 1967. That is how long Joshua and Caleb had to wait before they entered the promise land. After which it took 7 years to defeat the giants. Countless other signs as well. I could share with you for hours. The writer of 88 reasons was not a false prophet. The reasons then are the same reasons today. This generation was correct then and remains correct now. At time 40 years was used for a generation. However, the misunderstanding came in not clearing seeing “shall not pass away”. The greatest generation WW2 has passed away. The generation of 1947/48/49 has not passed away yet. The three score and ten, and if by strength four score. This is the life of a generation before it passes away.

    So then, if this is correct all things must be fulfilled no later than 2028. However, it says also “unless those days were shortened no life would remain” That bring me back to 2018, The Jews agree with this date being the end of the Great Tribulation and Psalms 118. We know for a fact that 1917 and 1967 were Jubilee years. That mean 2017/18 will be Jubilee. This also affirms Psalm 117 as the shortest Psalm corresponding to the Lord “shorting time”. The great earthquakes during and near the end of the tribulation flattens everything. We know that such a quake can shorten time in relationship to the rotation of the earth. It reminds me of movies when at the last second a bomb is dismantled. Likewise, man might be at the moment pushing the preverbal button. Even the slightest amount of time could be the difference.

    Great to hear from you!

    God bless you soooooooo very much.
