The Great Jubilee
There is an abundance of historical and Scriptural evidence that the Jubilee years given to Israel by the Lord God Himself in Leviticus 25:8-54 have fallen each 50 years in this present dispensation on those years designated as “17-18” and “67-68.” In other words, portions of the years 1717-18, 1767-68, 1817-18, 1867-68, 1917-18, 1967-68, etc. were Jubilee years. This is taking the inspired Word of God as literal truth, and is in perfect harmony with what is stated about the Jubilee in Leviticus 25. The reason that the Jubilee year consumes portions of two of our Gentile years is because the Jewish calendar year is based on the cycles of the Moon, and not on the solar year of the Gentiles.
When each 49th year is completed and the 50th year arrives “the trumpet of the Jubilee” is “to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement,” Leviticus 25:9. These instructions are set forth so clearly that only someone who is mentally deficient or a “willingly ignorant” [2 Peter 3:3-5] unbelieving “religionist” could possibly misunderstand them. This then means that the next 50th Jubilee year in the 49 year cycle leading up to the Jubilee from 1967-68 will then begin on the day of atonement, Yom Kippur, September 30, 2017. This is the exact date the next Jubilee year will begin in the Jewish year, 5777, clearly indicating that the Great Jubilee year will occur in the Jewish years, 5777-78. On our Gentile calendar this will be in the years 2017-18.
THIS INFORMATION IS IMPORTANT! PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO IT!
The number of days involved in the Tribulation Period
Any serious student of Bible prophecy KNOWS that the Tribulation period is 2,520 days in length. This is 7 years of 360 days to the year. 360 days to the year is the length of time involved in a “prophetic year.” Whether some want to believe it or not, it will also be the literal and actual number of days in each of the next seven years of the Tribulation, for the Lord is preparing to shake this whole earth causing the revolutions of the earth on its axis to revert to a year of exactly 360 days to the year.
All that is necessary to arrive at this figure for the length of the Tribulation is for a true Bible believer to add the 1,260 days of the ministry of God’s Two Witnesses in the
first half of the Tribulation to the 42 months [1,260 days] in which “the holy city shall” be “tread under foot” by the Antichrist and his followers in the last half of the Tribulation, Revelation 11:1-3. The total obtained by adding the two periods of 1,260 days each is 2,520 days. My! Isn’t that hard to figure out? It must be! For only those of God’s people who take the Word of God as literal truth, understand how to “rightly divide the Word of truth,” [2 Timothy 2:15] and receive the 100 percent true Biblical teaching of the Pre-tribulation rapture, appear to have the spiritual understanding and intelligence to figure it out. If we are going by the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth of God’s Word, then the Tribulation is 2,520 days in length.
However, there is another period of thirty days added to this 2,520 days of trouble in Daniel 12:11. The starting point for this additional 30 days is explicitly stated in the verse to be “from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up,” therefore we know from comparing Scripture with Scripture that the starting point for this count begins in close proximity to the middle of the Tribulation and extends 30 days beyond the end of the Tribulation.
I personally suspect that this 30 day extension will be a “mopping up” time following the literal, bodily, visible, return of the Lord to the earth, when He puts down and disposes of all of His enemies and the enemies of Israel that have survived the Tribulation. I personally relate it to the Judgment of the Nations following His return to the earth in Matthew 25:31-46. However, identifying the exact what or why of this extra 30 days is not the burden of this study.
The point here is that the extra 30 days have to be added to the 2,520 days for a total time period of 2,550 days which have to be taken into consideration. All 2,550 of these days MUST PRECEDE THE GREAT JUBILEE. Why? Because when the trumpet of the Jubilee sounds “ye shall….. proclaim
throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof,” Leviticus 25:10. At that time “ye shall return every man unto his possession [inheritance], and ye shall return every man unto his family.” That time will be the first year of the LIBERTY of Christ upon the earth. All slaves will be set free, all debts will be cancelled, and there will FINALLY be absolute and perfect “ Millennial Kingdom EARTH.” Those who have survived the Tribulation who enter that glorious time “will learn war no more,” Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 4:1-4. Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! Therefore……. PEACE ON
Let’s count Backwards…..
The Great Jubilee Trumpet will sound on SEPTEMBER 30, 2017. This is the Jewish Day of Atonement in the 7th month of Tishri in the Jewish year, 5777. Now let’s count BACKWARDS from that exact date. Here is my own count using the Perpetual Calendar set forth in the World Almanac to determine accuracy. Count it for yourself!
Right or wrong, I began my count BACKWARDS by counting September 30, 2017, the Jewish Day of Atonement, as the first day of the count. This results in the following day counts…….
The Count of Days
2017 273 Days
2016 366 “
2015 365 “
2014 365 “
2013 365 “
2012 366 “
2011 365 “
2010 85 “
This means that the final day of this count from the day of the sounding of the trumpet on the Day of Atonement on September 30, 2017, which will begin the
, COUNTING BACKWARDS ends OCTOBER 8, 2010. Hello! Have we just learned something? Great Jubilee Millennial Kingdom
There is only one “possible” variable in this entire calculation, and it sure isn’t engraved in stone. The ONLY “possible” variable that I can detect in this entire calculation is determining the exact day WHEN the daily sacrifice is taken away and the abomination of desolation is “set up,” Daniel 11:11. In other words, does Daniel 9:27 literally mean the exact middle of the Tribulation, or does “in the midst of the week” leave room for the prophecy to vary a few days one way or the other to either side of the exact middle of the Tribulation? I DO NOT KNOW! Is this stated clearly enough?
I DO KNOW that the prophecies given by the Lord in Matthew 24:15 and in Revelation 13:14-15 DO NOT give enough help to be “dogmatic” on this question. However, each of these passages, right along with Daniel 12:1-2, makes it clear that the exact time for the taking away of the daily sacrifice and the setting up of the abomination of desolation, at the very most, could only be variable BY A FEW DAYS.
Logical and Scriptural Conclusions
In view of these Scriptural truths, then my BACKWARDS count from the sounding of the Jubilee Trumpet on the Day of Atonement in 2017 can also only be variable BY A FEW DAYS. So what truth is now set before us…???
My BACKWARDS count ends on October 8, 2010. What would the implications then be if my count is PERFECTLY CORRECT…?? Think people! Use your brain! It would mean that AS OF TODAY, September 23, 2010, there is ONLY SIXTEEN DAYS LEFT [16 days] left before the Tribulation period MUST BEGIN in order to have
it all completed and over with by the sounding of the Great Jubilee Trumpet on the Jewish Day of Atonement in 2017. If the variable pointed out does come into play, and my calculations are not absolutely correct, then there is still only A FEW DAYS OF VARIATION.
Therefore sometime in these next 16 days the resurrection and Pre-tribulation rapture of the Lord’s New Testament believers WILL occur, with only a “possible” variation of not more than 30 days as I have set forth in this study. Glory to God! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Thank you sweet Jesus!
This means that our precious Lord and Savior and Heavenly Bridegroom could come for His New Testament believers NOW at any minute, of any hour, of any day. Hallelujah! Folks, keep your heart on the Lord Jesus Christ and your eyes on the Heavens! Stay in His Word and stay in prayer!
Never mind those in the ranks of Christianity who will mock and scoff at this study. I DID NOT WRITE IT FOR THEM! I wrote it for those of God’s people who truly believe and know the truth, and who have the intelligence to logically study this out for themselves. That DOES NOT include the mockers and scoffers who blatantly deny the reality of the rapture and make the Lord Jesus Christ Himself out to be A LIAR, John 14;1-3; Revelation 3:10. Let the mockers and scoffers “pick and choose” what parts of the Word they want to believe and pay the consequences of their own wicked unbelief. It is their choice! Read 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12.
I made my choice long ago to believe ALL THE WORDS of our Lord Jesus Christ [Matthew 4:4] and ONLY AND ALL of the inspired Word of Almighty God, 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21. This is why in this study I specifically and explicitly called for the attention of true New Testament believers who believe in the Pre-tribulation rapture of God’s people. Whether the mockers and scoffers realize it or not, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has been using THIS VERY TRUTH to separate “the chaff from the wheat” in the ranks of Christianity for the past 22 years. Read Habakkuk 2:2-4 and Hebrews 10:35-39 and ask the Lord in humble and sincere prayer to impart to you the full truth of these passages. If anyone who reads this is on the WRONG SIDE of the issue, I can only pray God’s mercy on your soul, for at any minute now if you are “left behind” at the rapture you are going to desperately need His mercy.
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth,” 3rd John 4.
