From Asher Intrater, Revive Israel Newsletter, Sept. 26, 2014
End Times Made Simple

There are three major events in the end times soon approaching.

They may be summarized:
2.Second Coming

The tribulation is a series of worldwide difficulties which culminate in an international attack on Israel (Matt. 24). The Second Coming occurs at the peak moment of that war when Jerusalem is about to be overwhelmed by enemy forces (Zech. 14). The Millennium is the Kingdom of God on earth for 1,000 years of peace and prosperity with Yeshua ruling as King (Rev. 20).
The term "tribulation" is connected to the time of Jacob's "trouble" in the Hebrew prophets (Jer. 30:7, Dan. 12:1). During this time there is not only difficulty but also revival, evangelism, supernatural protection, purification of the Church, and the restoration of Israel.

The Second Coming is a "last minute" intervention by Yeshua as commander of the armies of YHVH to defeat the forces of evil (Rev 19). At that time, demons will be driven out, the dead of the first resurrection raised, and true believers supernaturally "transported" to welcome Yeshua back to earth.
After this great war, the Messianic kingdom will start. Jerusalem will be the political and spiritual capital of the world. The government will be led by Yeshua and those who will rule together with Him. There will be great peace, prosperity and justice in this righteous society.

During the first century, there were also three main events Crucifixion, Resurrection and Pentecost. Those three events took place on the three spring holy days, Pesach/Passover, Bikkurim/First Fruits and Shavuot/Weeks. It would be biblically logical therefore that the events of the end times will take place on the three autumn holy days Teruah/Trumpets, Kippur/Atonement and Succoth/Tabernacles.

We could summarize the connection of the autumn holy days and the end times:
1.Trumpets = Tribulation
2.Atonement = Second Coming
3.Tabernacles = Millennium

The world political-economic-social situation is already leading up to these events. Yeshua compared this process to a woman in labor. The pains start out light with more time between them; and then they become more intense and more quickly placed (John 16:21).

It is urgent that we repent and strengthen our faith to be able to stand in victory during the times before us.
