The question of how soon, or when the Rapture will be is always an intriguing question, and it's fun to speculate. So following are my best guesses on when the Rapture could be this Spring Season. If we're still here later this year (Which I hope will NOT be the case!), I'll speculate on potential Autumn and Winter dates then.
A major current event that could affect the timing of the Rapture is the fact that the United Nations is planning to vote on a Two State Solution to divide the Land of Israel between the Jews and the Palestinians. If the leaders in the United Nations do try to force Israel to be divided to form a separate Palestinian nation in the near future, this move will greatly anger God the Father, and it could cause Him to start bringing down His Wrath on the enemies of Israel. So if a plan to divide Israel is decided upon this month by the United Nations, I'd say we're looking at a late spring to early summer Rapture this year, even if Israel isn't scheduled to be divided immediately.
Even though no one knows the day or hour of the Rapture, the fulfillment of many End Time prophecies and the appearance of many heavenly and earthly signs are telling us that it is imminent. Since we know that the Rapture is coming soon by the signs that Yahshua or Jesus told us to watch for as a sign of its nearness, there are several special upcoming dates to consider.
First on the list is Passover, which begins on the evening of April 22nd, 2016. Furthermore, the Sunday after - which falls on April 24th - would correspond to Christ's Resurrection Day on the Jewish Calendar. Since Christ ascended to Heaven briefly on that day before returning to Earth to visit the Apostles that evening, it corresponds well with the Rapture, in which the Bride of Christ and the Wise Virgins will be taken up to Heaven to be presented before the Father at the Wedding of the Lamb. In fact, all of Passover Week - which is also called the Feast of Unleavened Bread - is a High Rapture Watch period, and it runs from April 22nd through the 30th this year.
40 days later marks Christ's formal Ascension Day, which ended His First Advent on the Earth. This fell ten days before the Jewish version of Pentecost called Shavuot. Ascension Day and the Feast of Shavuot itself both have strong ties to the theme of the Rapture and Resurrection since they are tied to the spring Barley harvest, and Shavuot falls on June 11th, 2016 this year. So ten days before that is June 1st, 2016.
Since all born-again saints will ascend to Heaven at the time of the Rapture, I consider these dates that are tied to Yahshua's Ascension into Heaven, and the pouring out of His Holy Spirit on Shavuot or Pentecost to have a very high potential as Rapture days. Also, coming in May of 2016, the Christian date for Pentecost will be on Sunday, May 15th. So May 5th will be the Christian date marking Yahshua's Ascension Day ten days before Pentecost. So the period from May 4th through to the day after Pentecost on May 16th is also a high Rapture Watch period.
But again, remember that no one knows exactly when the Rapture will be. We only know it's definitely the season for the Rapture due to all the Heavenly and Earthly signs that there have been. So we always need to be ready! To be sure you are ready, remember to repent from every sin, forgive everyone you need to forgive, pray for your brethren and loved ones, and be kind and loving - in so far as it is possible - to prepare your heart to meet the source of all Love - our Messiah Yahshua or Jesus.
Don't get discouraged, fellow believers! Keep looking up, for our deliverance from this wicked world draws ever nearer! Also, for more encouragement, be sure to read the following hope-filled posts on my blog:
