The Day of Atonement is a feast that is a shadow of things to come i.e., the Second Coming

Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: 17 which are a shadow of things to come

The 7 feasts in Leviticus 23 were a shadow of things to come… literally. Jesus fulfilled the 1st 4 feasts on the 14th, 15th and 16th days of the 1st month of the Jewish year and on the Day of Pentecost. Jesus will fulfill the last 3 harvest feasts on the 1st - 10th days, 11th - 15th days and the 16th - 22nd days of the 7th month of the Jewish year.

These are the first 4 feasts that Jesus fulfilled when he was crucified & rose from the dead:

1. the Feast of the Passover - Jesus was the Passover lamb

2. the Feast of Unleavened Bread - Jesus was the sinless Unleavened Bread of life

3. the Feast of Firstfruits - Jesus was the Firstfruits of the dead

4. the Feast of Pentecost - Jesus gave the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost

These are the last 3 harvest feasts Jesus will fulfill when he comes again:

5. the Feast of Trumpets - 3 angels will warn people of the coming wrath of God

6. the Day of Atonement - Jesus returns i.e., the Second Coming

7. the Feast of Tabernacles or Booths - the holy convocation will rest in heaven

The Feast of Trumpets begins with Trumpets. Trumpets are used to “herald” a coming event. Jesus will fulfill the Feast of Trumpets with 3 angels.

The first angel will preach the everlasting gospel throughout the earth telling people to FEAR GOD and give glory to him one last time. The second angel will destroy and/or proclaim the destruction of Babylon. The third angel will pronounce judgment on all who have taken the mark of the beast.

Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, 7 saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

The Day of Atonement is a 10-day feast. It will take the angels about 10 days to make their proclamations throughout the earth.

These 10 days will mark the last 10 days of the Great Tribulation as well. The devil, knowing his time is almost up, will try to kill as many believers as he can fulfilling this scripture:

Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

The Day of Atonement is “heralded” with ONE Trumpet. Jesus will fulfill the Day of Atonement when he descends with a shout, with the trump of God. This is a 5-day feast. The Second Coming will take about 5 days to accomplish.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.

The Feast of Tabernacles or Booths is celebrated with a blood offering. Jesus is the offering once for all. Those who are alive and remain will be gathered, ie a holy convocation, and taken up to heaven where they will rest and do no servile work while they wait for the Lord to pour out his wrath and the millennial reign.

These are the upcoming dates for the Day of Atonement for the rest of the decade: 10/11/2027, 9/30/2028, 9/19/2029, 10/7/2030. None of the dates before 2027 are possible because there's no time to fulfill the events that have to take place before the Second Coming so I did not include them. Plug these dates into Pick Ur Rapture and see if any of the pre-rapture events have taken place already or find out when they may take place.

The bible says Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

The bible does not say the Second Coming is instantaneous.

What is instantaneous is... 1 Corinthians 15:51 ... We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye...

Therefore, I think the Second Coming, i.e. the Day of Lord, is a period of time that will take 5 days because that's how long the feast for the Day of Atonement is. And that feast is a shadow of things to come... i.e. the Second Coming.
