The Passover meal was not completed and is waiting to be finished!

Important to note, there are four cups partaken during the Passover meal.

These cups are;

1)The Cup of Sanctification

2) The Cup of Judgment

3) The Cup of Redemption

4)The Cup of Praise

These four Cups represent the four expressions of deliverance promised by God Exodus 6:6-:

1)"I will bring out,"

2)"I will deliver," 

3)"I will redeem,"

4) "I will take."

There is a fifth cup, not partaken of, which is called the cup of Elijah, This cup represents that the prophet Elijah, who is expected to come one Passover future. 

Each year, the place is set at the Passover meal for Elijah who according to the Book of Malachi, will come BEFORE the great and dreadful day of the Lord:

"See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes." Malachi 4:5

Realizing the importance of these cups, shows what transpired during the Passover meal known as  "The Lord's Supper" and what it's prophetic meaning may be.

Luke 22:17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.

Luke 22: 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

The completion of the Passover meal appears to be the Rapture, wherein Yeshua will again drink and eat at His Table, with His Bride He has fetched!

The last cup that Jesus offered up was the Cup of Redemption. There is the Cup of Elijah and the Cup of Praise both still awaiting to be offered, to fulfill the Passover.

Elijah, as one of the 2 witnesses, comes and then the Rapture!

Jesus was referring to the "cup of redemption", that represented the blood of the sacrificial lamb, when he said:

"Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."

This cup of redemption was the third and last cup before He became our sacrificial Lamb! The last two cups are still pending and when they are offered/fulfilled, Passover will finally be completely finished!

Note that the pending "Cup of Praise", which may indicate the Rapture, is also considered  God's promise that , "I will take."!

The last cup, the cup of praise appears to represent the The Kiddush cup of the Jewish wedding ceremony:

The shared cup of wine is a simcha, joy, at a Jewish Wedding.  When the bride drinks from the cup after the bridegroom it is a sign that she is accepting the covenant he has signed during the Ketubah signing.

It therefore, looks like the "cup of praise" will be the Kiddush cup that Jesus said He will drink from, with us, when "the Kingdom of God comes", at the marriage supper of the Lamb!

What JOY there will be when we are Raptured and drink from that last cup, "the fruit of the vine", finally and completely sealing the Covenant of our redemption!

  1. I LOVE IT! A friend of mine and I have been searching this out and we've been back and forth with the rapture being either during Firstfruits (because of the barley harvest parallel), or Rosh Hashanah (because of the "last trumpet"). Now, it makes so much sense! Since the Revelation 12 sign (Virgo birthing the male child) appears during Rosh Hashanah 2017, it seemed the Church Rapture would HAVE to be in the Spring of 2014. Understanding the Passover symbolism, I now see where the Church rapture should occur during Passover 2014 (with the first of the four 2014-2015 blood moons occurring on Passover 2014). The Church Rapture would fulfil the 4th cup of Passover and the parallel the first fruits barley harvest. This should be the quiet in-gathering where Jesus comes as a thief in the night, takes what is valuable out of the world (His Church) without anyone realizing it until after it happens. Then the elect (Jewish 144,00) should be raptured during mid tribulation Rosh Hashanah 2017 (the very open event where everyone sees the angels gathering the elect), along with the two witnesses. . .the same time when the Virgo Revelation 12 sign comes into alignment on Rosh Hashanah (September 27-28, 2017 I believe). Your knowledge and analysis have really helped bring clarity to this! Thank you ~ Melissa
