If Yom Kippur in 2017 is when the year of Jubilee is declared by The Messiah/Christ, we can backtrack to when the final cycle will begin. The last of the seven of the seven year cycles will begin as of Yom Kippur in 2010. If Jubilee year is declared on Yom Kippur, so are the other years of the Sabbatical cycles? Might this be a momentous day in 2010? If this is a leap year in the 19 year cycle and the Hillel calendar is off one month, as Alison Bowden believes it is, then according to the new moon declared at conjunction, The Feast of Trumpets is 10-7 to 8 and Yom Kippur is 10-16 to 17. On the Hillel calendar, 10-17 to 18 is Cheshvan 10. This day for the family Noah was The Day of The Separation. The door or gangplank was closed on the ark. The Bridegroom will close the door! He is also called The Door! Paul also called Yom Kippur The Day.
In his book The Temple, Alfred Edersheim noted, on page 146 that the Sabbatical cycle was observed in the times of The Messiah. The Sabbatical year was strictly enforced. On page 152 he noted that Yom Kippur was called "a Sabbath of Sabbatism." Apart from days in the 70th Week of Daniel of 2520 or 2550, the marker in space and time of Yom Kippur for declaration and beginning of a year in a Sabbatical cycle may be very important.
For those who believe in His Second Coming in 2014 or 2015, that would be several years short of Jubilee. Isn't it more logical that He returns then He declares the Jubilee? In the year of Jubilee, "the acceptable year of the Lord", all major issues would be resolved like the absolving of debts, freeing of slaves, declaration of total freedom, the Sheep and Goats Judgment, and the absolute spiritual clean slate. Jubilee year would be a great and premiere symbol for the inauguration of His matchless rule and reign for a thousand years! Why delay it for several years? The final Sabbatical cycle before Jubilee in 2017 to 2018 is plausible for 2010 to 2017. May we eagerly WATCH for the Beloved to arrive.
With Love and Shalom,
