Updated: Earth rests from man as Man rests from work

The land enjoyed its sabbath rests; all the time of its desolation it rested, until the seventy years were completed in fulfillment of the word of the LORD spoken by Jeremiah. 2Chron. 36:21

Earth gets some rest from mankind just as the Bible predicted.

Borders are closing. Everyone — “shut up” — just as the Bible predicted.

“The land is enjoying its Sabbath rest”!

(See “Venice” and “The Weather Network” for images.)

Posts were written over the years about all that is now happening. And while there were several possibilities for when this would happen  — the late winter of 2020 was undoubtedly one of them. And as time drew closer, so did the specifics on what soon followed. Two predictions merged to become one — the Coronavirus and the Stock Market.

(It happens that the very first post on 1260d.com touched on this subject, including the below article written five years ago. Recall this diagram from the spring of 2015. It relates to the “5 plus 5 years” from 2015 to 2020 and 2025 — a ten-year “Shmita“!)

The Ten Virgins and their lamps

And speaking of the above two lamps — recall the parable by Jesus about “The ten virgins.” “Five were wise” ( = 2015 to 2020), “and five were foolish” (= 2020 to 2025), Matt. 25.

Five had oil; five did not. It was too late, now, to buy oil at the store.

Let’s check the current price of oil as I write this: Down 20% so far today and has fallen 250% since Feb. 20th. The day before that marked the end of the 11-year Bull Market — on “Shebat 24th” just as the Bible predicted. At one point today, all gains in the Stock Market since Trump took office were wiped out

And speaking about “oil” — What’s in the news right now? (See image at left.)

If you have not been hearing from God the past five years, then you are in confusion now — especially with all the lying pillow prophets out there telling people just what they want to hear.

Before the creation of the 1260d.com website, there were older websites. Many articles were written at that time about the year 2025 and the Royal Jubilees (490 years) counting from when Israel entered the Promised Land in 1406 BC until now — and “the 5 plus 5 years” that precedes 2025.

The Bible Predicted this day

The Bible predicted this day and year 1290 +1335 years ago (Dan 12).

Excerpts from articles over the past 25 years will be supplied after the following summary.

“As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest…” (Last verse in the book of Daniel)

Quick Summary

“Times of the Gentiles,” 606 BC

The prophetic book of Daniel begins in 606 BC when Daniel is exiled, (or 605 BC). Jeremiah prophesies that the land would enjoy its “rest” for the next 70 years while Israel is in forced exile, and so it was, (Jer. 25:11; 29:10; Dan. 9:2; 2Chron. 36:21; Lev. 25:4; 26:34).

When these 70 years were about to expire, God reveals more about Jeremiah’s prophecy about the “70 years” (Dan. 9).  God explicitly affirms to Daniel what He only alluded to Jeremiah, namely that ‘Israel would rest 1/7th of a 490-year period’, which equals “70 years” (6 x 70, plus 70 = 490).

And so, the land enjoyed its missing Sabbath-years”, (2Chron. 36:21).

Royal Jubilees (490 years)

At that time, God showed Daniel that the 490-years come in cycles. (Jeremiah’s “70 years” must belong to the previous cycle to make sense mathematically.)

In previous posts, I refer to cycles of “490-years” as “Royal Jubilees” because they are ten-times a regular jubilee of 49 years.

The jubilees commanded by God first began when Israel entered the Promised Land in 1406 BC. It happens that seven Royal Jubilees later comes to the spring of 2025. Therefore, less half-a-year (.5 years) equals the start of the year of jubilee in autumn 2024.

However, on the said, “times-ten” level — the end of this 7th “Royal Jubilee,” therefore begins around the spring of 2020 — NOW! (Spring of 2025, less five years = 2020.)

Daniel is also shown that a day can equal a year. (Also see Ezek. 4). (In Dan.9, “490 years” in Hebrew is, “seventy weeks” (of years). The Book of Enoch utilizes the same structure. Also, see the book of Jubilees.)

606 BC, less the first 70 years is 536 BC

In 536 BC, Daniel received a further revelation, this time about “1290” and “1335 days”. Then Daniel is told that he will “rest נוּחַ” and arise “at the end of days.” ( is revealed to Daniel in the spring of 536 BC, and this is 70 years after the said 606 BC.)

Without elaborating here (because this was already explained in detail),  the said: “606 BC “(when the “times of the Gentiles” began), plus “1290” plus “1335” years, brings us to NOW  — the spring of 2020. (Recall that “a day is as a year.”)

Quotes from the past

I will add the quotes from the past throughout today.

God wants me to rest too!

This Sunday, I begin a new contract at work, part of which I will be paid to rest (a “Night Sleep” contract) — one day a week — either on Saturday or Sunday. This should allow me more time to write articles.


To start with, 490d.com is my personal webpage about forgiveness, unchanged from when I purchased it for ten years in 2015. I don’t say a lot on that page other than quote some Bible, but I do say this:

“Daniel 9, Rev. 12. (490 days “seventy weeks” and 1260 days)

www.1260d.com (First article posted: www.1260d.com/temple-time.pdf. And note 10-year shmita!)”

If you still have doubts, you can read the same short page at 490d.com at the independent Archive.org. This snapshot was taken “Jan 6, 2016”. web.archive.org/web/20160109065741/http://490d.com/

It’s also interesting that exactly five priestly years later (5 x 336) is March 14th when I wrote the main post about the Stock Market crash:

“Coronavirus and the Dragon image that foretold Stock Market crash.”

The following was written almost exactly five years ago:

Jubilees and Royal Jubilees

Biblical timeframes work in multiples of 10. (Endnote ii). For example, both 7 and 70 are similar in meaning, as are 49 and 490, (Dan 9).

A Jubilee is 7-times-7 years (49 years).

A Royal Jubilee, therefore, is 490 years, (Dan. 9:24-26).

We reach a pivotal 70th Jubilee (7 Royal Jubilees) in AD 2025.

The Jubilee begins from the year that Israel entered the Promised Land. This was in 1406 BC, or 1455 BC according to the idealistic chronology of the kings of Judah. But because these two dates happen to be a Jubilee apart; therefore, the Year of Jubilee remains unchanged either way.

The time-lines seen in our temple charts are also ten-times larger than our normal frame of reference. Unrelated, but in agreement with the actual year of Jubilee, it just happens that the next ten years become just one long ‘ten-year’ Jubilee according to temple time, (2015 to 2025)! (Endnote iii)

And ‘2015’ just happens to be the “Shmita” year (Endnote iv) used by Jews today, (i.e., the repeating “Seventh” year of “release”).

First post on 1260d.com

Because God graciously delayed judgment 15 years, from 2010 to 2025, just as He did for King Hezekiah. (I spoke about this delay in detail back in 2009.) This delay was accompanied by a sign to do with the Sun back then, too, (Isa. 38:5-8). “Five” is the number of grace. Therefore, “15 years” is  5*3, ‘grace’ ‘competed’. Hezekiah died at 55 years of age.

For example, from the Creation of Adam, 4115t BC (see note at end of article), unto AD 2010, are 5*5*5 jubilees; but because there are 70 jubilees from Creation to the death of Hezekiah, this means that from Hezekiah’s death in 686 BC, to 2010 are 55 jubilees. (5*5*5 = 125 and 125 = 70+55.)

Also, from when Israel entered Egypt in 1876 BC to 2010 are 555*7 yrs, which is the same as 1260+1290+1335 yrs. This 15-year delay was explained back in 2009. Moreover, on the Jewish calendar, 2010-2017 are the years 5770-5777, etc.

That’s why the Stock Market did not completely crash in 2015! That’s why Trump!

It’s all about ‘delay’ – until the cup of the Amorites is full. (Gen 15:16And whose to say that He won’t delay again?

“… and [he] swore by him who lives forever and ever… that there would be no more delay, but that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, the mystery of God would be fulfilled, (Rev. 10:6-7).

Part two of the same post:
God can delay longer than 15 years!

The gracious 15-year delay that I wrote about in 2009 is nearing the first stage of what could be its end. (We explain how the numeric is tied to Hezekiah’s 15 years later. Generally, the 15 years spanned from 2010 to 2025, but then there is the possible seven years before or after that, etc.

As said back in 2009, and so I say again: God also made it explicitly clear that if He chooses, He may delay another 15 or 30 years. But incontrovertibly, 2025 is the great bows-eye numerically speaking, spanning back, dare I say, hundreds of thousands of years – back to obscure ages. On this scale, 30 or 60 years is but a month or two – like a mere leap month. Notice in the chart that if cycles of 70 continue from the Creation 4175t BC, one arrives at 2055t-2056 AD. But then again, on a times-ten level, half 70 is 35, and Jesus said that the coming of the End would be “shortened” (Matt 24:21-22). Thus, 2055/2056 less 35 equals 2020/2021???

(That’s why the ten-plus-ten years between the eclipses of 2014 to 2024 to 2034, too. These ‘ten-plus-ten’ years on this scale are like the 49th and 50th year of a jubilee, in this case, 7*490 (as 7*49) from the Conquest of 1406 BC…

My point is this: we cannot be dogmatic as to when the end will be. Just be ready and watching.

Click to enlarge. All Jubilee and Shmita cycles originate from the Creation in perfect precision. Notice that the “ten-times” Shmita is included in this chart as ’60 + 10 years’. (Posted in 2017.)

  1. [KJV] “In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.”
    Jehoiakim’s reign has been deduced by scholars to begin in 609BC.
    It is mentioned in the Bible Timelines in the Southern Kingdom of Judah’s King list section, which details the reigns of Hebrew Kings. 606 or 605BC are the dates of the First Exile.
    External online sources back this up.

    [KJV] “And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.”
    Daniel is brought into the service of the king of Babylon at this time.

    This 1st Captivity began the “times of the gentiles” (Nations).

    • Hi David. “The times of the Gentiles” can also be dated from 609 or 606/605 BC, depending on the definition. However, 606 BC is commonly used. Thus, in a sense, the 70 years were both 609 to 539 and 606 to 536 BC. But that’s a detail found in earlier articles.
