Reader Question: Where do you get that Sept. 23, 2015 is Jubilee (of Jerusalem)?

Flickr_Slichot_Prayer_shofarReader Question: Where do you get that Sept. 23, 2015 is Jubilee (of Jerusalem)? Great question.

First of all, it is important to know that God is not working on our Gregorian calendar but He is rather fulfilling His Word according to the calendar that He established, which is a 360 day year (as opposed to our 365 day year).

In order to understand His times and seasons, we need to be aligned with His calendar. That having been said, when we look at the Jubilee in Leviticus 25:8, it states,

"You shall count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years, so that the time of the seven weeks of years shall give you forty-nine years.

49 years multiplied by 360 days equals 17,640 days, a full Jubilee cycle.

While we cannot exactly calculate the Jubilee of the world, we can calculate the Jubilee of Jerusalem because we know that it was miraculously recaptured by Israel on June 7, 1967.

You can see on the prophetic calendar I put together, that September 23, 2015 is marked a pivotal date. That day marks exactly 17,640 days from the date June 1967. Not only does September 23, 2015 mark the Jubilee of Jerusalem but also falls on the holiest day of the Jewish year, Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement)!

Normally the trumpet is blown on the Feast of Trumpets, but if we continue reading in Leviticus, we can see that on the Jubilee year, the trumpet is ALSO to be sounded on Yom Kippur!

(Lev 25:9) Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land.

(Lev 25:10) And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, when each of you shall return to his property and each of you shall return to his clan.

WOW. God's word is inerrant. His timing is perfect. There is none like our God, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob and His Son Yeshua our soon coming Redeemer. If you don't yet have a shofar, better order yours now… better yet, come buy one HERE IN THE LAND! :)

  1. Aren't you forgetting Jewish leap years. His word says how many years it will be, not how many days, and leap years have more days in them than other years. So, it's forty-nine years until the year of Jubilee begins, but some of those years have to be leap years and so have more than 360 days. (Which puts the Jews calendar roughly back on track with the Gregorian once you start covering a broad number of years. It would have to stay one track with the Gregorian or Spring months would eventually wind up in the fall. It's just that the Jews put more days back in and use fewer leap years to do it.)

    • God's years are based on the lunar cycle, while the Gregorian calendar is based on a solar calendar.

      A lunar year has 354.37 days. A solar year has 365.24 days. Amazingly when you average them together it comes to almost 360 days perfectly.

      The leap years or the extra month that is added to the Biblical calendar every few years is added to a 354 day cycle, to align itself with the solar calendar, thus works perfectly with God's prophetic calendar of 360 days.

      I hope this answers your question.

      • So, you're saying you have factored all the appropriate leap years into the Jewish calendar in your equation — that your number of days come from counting 49 years including all of the Jewish leap years during the past 49 years with all their extra days to come up with September 23? If so, that answers my question. If you haven't counted the ACTUAL number of years, including the actual leap years, to arrive at Sept. 23, then I wouldn't put much faith in that date.

        It would seem to me that a better way than counting days would be to simply use the actual Jewish calendar that Jews currently use for the start date (since I think it is the true Jewish calendar that is based on the way they have always tracked years) and see what date is 49 years out on the Jewish calendar from the day Jerusalem was captured. Certainly Jews, in counting the years based on Leviticus to find the start of the year of Jubilee for Jerusalem, would just count the 49 actual Jewish years that have passed to arrive at the same Jewish day on the calendar when Jerusalem was taken by the Israelis.

        In other words, on what Jewish day in 1967 was Jerusalem taken? Flip the Jewish calendar through the actual 49 Jewish years that have been recorded since then by Jewish rabbis, and find that same Jewish day. That Jewish day is the true Jubilee for Jerusalem (if a Jubilee for Jerusalem even means anything, as I don't remember any prophecy that indicates anything will happen on Jerusalem's Jubilee, so that it just speculation that the day of its Jubilee will be prophetically significant — not that I would be surprised to find that it DOES turn out to be prophetically significant).

        • The problem is the Hebrew calendar that "modern day" Jewish people use is standardized to a 360-Day cycle instead of the Lunar Cycle which the Bible uses. So if you wanted to go back counting the actual Jewish day, you'd also have to figure out which months had 29 days, and which had 30 days. However, God's prophetic year is always 360 days — so we know what date the Jewish people retook Jerusalem — June 7, 1967. When you calculate the exact number of days in a Jubilee cycle, you will see it coincides perfectly.

          As far as Jerusalem's Jubilee is concerned, this is from "Observations on Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John written by Issac Newton. The same Issac Newton who discovered gravity!

          "Now while such a return from
          captivity was the expectation of Israel, even before the times of
          Daniel, I know not why Daniel should omit it in his Prophecy. This part
          of the Prophecy being therefore not yet fulfilled, I shall not attempt a
          particular interpretation of it, but content myself with observing, that as
          the seventy and the sixty two weeks were Jewish weeks, ending with
          sabbatical years; so the seven weeks are the compass of a Jubilee, and
          begin and end with actions proper for a Jubilee, and of the highest
          nature for which a Jubilee can be kept: and that since the commandment
          to return and to build Jerusalem, precedes the Messiah the Prince 49
          years; it may perhaps come forth not from the Jews themselves, but from
          some other kingdom friendly to them, and precede their return from
          captivity, and give occasion to it; and lastly, that this rebuilding of
          Jerusalem and the waste places of Judah is predicted in Micah vii.
          11. Amos ix. 11, 14. Ezek. xxxvi. 33, 35, 36, 38. Isa. liv. 3, 11,
          12. lv. 12. lxi. 4. lxv. 18, 21,22. and Tobit xiv. 5. and that the return
          from captivity and coming of the Messiah and his kingdom are described in
          Daniel vii. Rev. xix. Acts i. Mat. xxiv. Joel iii. Ezek. xxxvi.
          xxxvii. Isa. lx. lxii. lxiii. lxv. and lxvi. and many other places of
          scripture. The manner I know not. Let time be the Interpreter."

          As you read the entire book, you see that Issac Newton believed the passage in Daniel 9 to describe BOTH comings of Jesus — centered on Jerusalem and aligned with Jubilee cycles.

    • From a Biblical perspective, we read in Revelation 11:2-3 but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months. And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth."

      So from a Biblical perspective, we can see the connection to 42-months to 1260 days in Revelation or a 30 day month / 360 day Prophetic year. We see this same correlation of time in Genesis, Esther and Daniel. There may be others, but these are the ones that come to the top of my mind.

  2. George White is right!!!
    In 1997 God told me to count 49 biblical years and I would land on a Jewish Feast day. That date was Sept-23rd-2015.

    We are about to see Jubilee proclaimed through out the entire world. The prisoners are about to go free and the blind are about to see. World wide revival is about to commence.

    War is about to break out in Israel at the same time.
    See you in September when the sky's are gray. I will be in Jerusalem at the Western wall on September 23rd 2015.
    This fall in Jerusalem!!!
