"How do I figure out when is the year of Jubilee?"

Hello, John and Doves,
How do I figure out when is the year of Jubilee?
According to the Reverend Charles Ludwidge Dodgson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Carroll, you begin at the beginning, go until you come to the end, and then stop.
So let's begin at Leviticus.
    "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.
    "Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
    "But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
    "That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: [for] it is a year of rest unto the land.
    "And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee,
    "And for thy cattle, and for the beast that [are] in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.
    "And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
    "Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth [day] of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
    "And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout [all] the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
    "A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather [the grapes] in it of thy vine undressed.
    "For it [is] the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
    "In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.
Leviticus 25:2-13  KJV
There is much more about the year of Jubilee, so that when we find out when it is, then that must be the year of Christ's return.
Witness the scripture,
"For [it is] the day of the LORD'S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
Isaiah 34:8
You are welcome to read the context of judgment and to work out the meaning of this strange passage.
Why do I call it strange?  We are used to a loving God that let's His enemies frolic about until they drop dead and go to hell.
Now, let's get back to the subject at hand.  When is the day of the LORD's vengeance?  Let me give you a clue.  Yeshua read only part of a scripture--this hinting at the two halves of His coming.  The full scripture is,
    "The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;
    "To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
    "To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified."
Isaiah 61:1-3
Jesus stopped speaking at the phrase, "the acceptable year of the LORD."  The wrath is not meant for Eretz Israel, but for her enemies.  So as not to give His countrymen false hope, nor dash their hopes, Jesus did not say outright when He would come, but gave clues only.  Even so, the clues point directly to facts in our age.
That being said, let us look at the facts.
Fact:  Daniel 9:24 predicts that the seventieth seven of shmita counts will see the anointing of the Most Holy.
Fact:  The children of Israel entered the promised land in the fall of 1415 BC, at or around Yom Kippur, the end of the grape harvest.  This would have been 2346.  According to Leviticus 25:2-13, quoted above, this is when the shmita count starts.
Fact:  1 + 49 = 50, therefore the Jubilee counts are every 49 years.
Fact:  The 70th Jubilee starts on [Must be proclaimed by Messiah Yeshua] on September 23, 2015--Yom Kippur 5776.  [2346 + (70 x 49) = 5776]  [see also Leviticus 25:2-13]
Fact:  Obama was elected (confirmed the covenant made on Oct. 29, 2008) on Nov. 4, 2008.
Fact:  7 x 360 = 2,520
Fact:  Calculation results
    From date:Wednesday, October 29, 2008

    Added 2520 days

    Resulting date: Wednesday, September 23, 2015--10 Tishrei 5776, which is Yom Kippur and the start of the 70th Jubilee from when the children of Israel entered the promised land.


End of story.
