Hello, John and Doves,This is an exercise unique to each one who does not, cannot, or will not believe that
If you are honest with yourself, you find that you believe God when He says, through the writers of the Midrash, that the reason for the Jubilee is to preserve the land boundaries between the tribes of Israel.
When Messiah returns, the borders of Eretz Israel shall be set up, and the Jubilee will return, right on schedule.
For it is written,
"The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land [is] mine; for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with me." Leviticus 25:23
Did you catch that? For ever? Make sure you know that,"Forever, O LORD, thy Word is settled in Heaven." Psalm 119:89Now, if the LORD's Word cannot change, is that of any benefit to us?Yes, for it is written,
"...[Y]our promises are backed by all the honor of your name." Psalm 138:2 NLT
"Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
and gave him the name above all other names,
that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:10-11Now that we know that God's Word can be trusted above and beyond anyone else's word, just how powerful and long-reaching are the promises of God?
"Remember the former things of old: for I [am] God, and [there is] none else; [I am] God, and [there is] none like me,
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken [it], I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed [it], I will also do it.
Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that [are] far from righteousness:
I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory."
Isaiah 46:9-13You can see that God has called Barak Hussein Obama to head this country--a man who was born in the east, in Kenya.However, unlike Cyrus, BHO means not to redeem and restore Eretz Israel. Indeed, if you read some of the posts on the home page of www.fivedoves.com, you will see that Jesus is encoded in Genesis 1:1 as mankind's true Savior, not BHO.So, then, here is the challenge:Step one: List the major events of each year of the twentieth century and of the twenty-first century so far.Step two: Identify those events which punctuated the Shmita years and the Jubilee years. Remember, there are 7 years per Shmita cycle. The year of Shmita is always the seventh year of that cycle. Year one of the eighth shmita cycle is always the Year of the Tithe for Jerusalem. Thus, the Year of the Tithe for Jerusalem is always both the fiftieth year of the current Jubilee cycle, as well as the first year of the next Jubilee cycle. The Year of the Tithe for Jerusalem is the same as the Jubilee year.Step three: Find the Jubilee year in each of the last two Jubilee cycles."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 jubilee 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 jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family." Leviticus 25:8-10Step four: Jesus said," 'Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.' " Matthew 5:17Therefore, please identify, out of all the fifty years [forty-nine of the current count, plus the Jubilee, the first of the next count] of the current count, which year must be--not can be, or might be--the year of His Return.Let me give you a clue. Jesus alluded to it, but He could not say it, for it wasn't His time for vengeance upon His enemies."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 61:1-3Step five: Identify the meaning of the phrase, "and he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week."I'll give you a couple of clues. First off, please read at least this one post by John Tng, webmaster of www.fivedoves.com: http://www.fivedoves.com/rapture/2008/obama_666_part4.html. Then realize that the motto of the Good Ol' USA is "e pluribus unum." This is Latin for, "out of many, one." The standard NWO line is that it means that many states formed one union. That is all well and good as far as it goes. Dig a little deeper http://www.apollyonrising2012.com/, and you find that "e pluribus unum" means that the NWO's own choice for the antichrist [Greek: substitute Christ] will come from the United States of America. Whoa, Nellie!!! That means that even if BHO tried to confirm a covenant for a million years, under the current Constitution of the United States, he could only confirm it for eight years at one go. But wait!! Jesus is coming in 2015, so the AC had only seven years, no matter what.Step six: Identify the beginning of the last week before the Lord steps down on the Mount of Olives, from where He ascended [Acts 1:11]. If you have identified the "Acceptable year of the LORD," then it's a no-brainer. The beginning must have been on October 29, 2008.The foregoing has been a spiritual service to math-o-phobes like myself.Baruch HaShem Yeshua [Blessed be the Name, "Yeshua."],Mike C.
