Hello, John and Doves,
Peter, under the inspiration of
the Holy Spirit, said,
"He must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to
restore everything, as he promised
long ago through his holy prophets."
This means that Jesus can only
come in a Jubilee year. The next Jubilee scheduled
is due to be declared by Yeshua Ha Mashiach as such on Yom
Kippur, 5776, which is September 23, 2015.
Why this must be so, is
clear if we consult God's holy prophets, as strongly
suggested by Peter that we do.
We'll just look at one Holy
Prophet of the Tanakh, Daniel.
It is written that the angel
Gabriel said to Daniel,
" 'Seventy 'sevens' are
decreed for your people and your holy city to finish
transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for
wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to
seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most
holy....' " Daniel 9:24
These "seventy sevens" are to
be counted as prescribed by Scripture. For the
Israel-only scenario, refer to Daniel 9:25-27. To
get the larger picture, go back to Leviticus.
It is written,
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.' " Leviticus 25:2
The children of Israel made
a first approach to the Promised Land in the time of
grape harvest, six months after Passover, 2305.
This would have been the beginning of the civil year,
2306. This same year, 2306, is when they might
have started counting. But they lacked the faith
to obey HaShem at His Word. Forty years later,
in 2346, the children of Israel entered the Promised
Land. And according to Daniel 9:24 and Leviticus
25:2ff, the clock started ticking inexorably towards
the Second Coming of Yeshua Ha Mashiach.
The "seventy sevens," from
our end of "His Story," can be regarded as seventy
sevens of shmita counts.
If we think along these
lines, we find--to our utter astonishment--that HaShem
has apparently decreed the following, from the get go.
2346 + (70 X 49) = 2346 +
3430 = 5776. Now, the first year of the children
of Israel dwelling in the Promised Land was
2346. The fiftieth year was 2396. This was
the first Jubilee.
the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty
throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It
shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is
to return to his family property and each to
his own clan."
Here's where some people get
hopelessly lost. Follow carefully. 1 + 49
= 50. Therefore, every 49th year is the Jubilee,
which is also the first year of the next count.
Why? Because HaShem counts by sevens! When
in doubt, always refer back to clear Scriptural
teaching. Remember Exodus 20:8?
Sabbath Day, to keep it holy."
Yeshua Ha Mashiach is due to
set foot on the Mount of Olives on Yom Kippur, 10
Tishrei, 5776, to proclaim "the acceptable year of the
LORD." [Isaiah 61:2]
On a side note, that's when
the twin "mountains of Bether [Song of Songs 2:17]"
will be created, as well as the "Valley of Jehoshaphat
[Joel 3:2]." The Mount of Olives will split in
two, half to the North, and half to the South
[Zechariah 14:4]. The resulting valley will lead
straight to the Gate Beautiful, the Golden
Gate. Yeshua Ha Mashiach will say, "I
AM here." And at His Name, the rocks will fall
out of the Gate, and He will march triumphantly
through. His Name is irresistible. John
18:6 was just a foretaste.
Indeed, it is written,
same Jesus, which is taken up
from you into heaven, shall so come in like
manner as ye have seen him go into
heaven.' Then returned they unto
Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which
is from Jerusalem a Sabbath day's journey."
Incidentally, verse 7
indicates that Jesus knew that His Apostles would not
see His Second Coming in their unresurrected
bodies. After all, 55 AD was only the 30th
Jubilee out of 70!
