Hi Oliver,

I concur with your calculations pointing to the Year 2016! Not only is 2016 the Jubilee Year, but it is also a 'year of perfect order'. There is NO doubt that the month of Nisan is a 'very special' month to God. It is the month of the Spring Feasts, it is the 'first month' of the Spiritual Year, and therefore the 'first month' of the Jubilee Year. The month of Nisan 5776/2016 is a very specially 'marked' month in a very specially 'marked' year.

The day of the Spring Equinox, Sunday March 20, 2016 (Nisan 10, 5776) is also Palm Sunday, and is exactly 1,290 days preceeding the Feast of Trumpets September 30, 2019. I believe this day to be a 'prime candidate' for the day that the abomination will be set up in the third temple in Jerusalem which allows for the 'great tribulation' and the second-half of the '70th Week of Daniel' to begin.

If that is the case, then 1,260 days preceeding the day of March 20, 2016 is the '8th day' of the Feast of Tabernacles October 8, 2012 which would then be a 'prime candidate' for the first day of the '70th Week of Daniel'to begin.

I believe that Scripture tells us that the '70 Week of Daniel' is seven years in length which is also also '85 Hebrew months'. Seven years is a total of 2,550 days. That is '85 Hebrew months' of 30 days each (ie. 30 X 85 = 2,550) which includes a leap year. The number of days in '43 Hebrew months is 1,290' and the number of days in '42 Hebrew months is 1,260'. Therefore the first-half (3 1/2 years) of the '70th Week' is '42 Hebrew months' long (ie. 1,260 days), and the second-half (3 1/2 years) of the 70th Week is '43 Hebrew months' in length (ie. 1,290 days).

Blessings to you and yours.
