“Sabbath year” is at hand! Jew & Gentile “One new Man”

This article is not an attempt to predict when Christ will return. It's about the convergence of jubilees in 2025.

The two seemingly contradictory views of how and from when the jubilees (and shmitas) were run in the past converge in 2025. Moreover, Israel will be 77 years a nation in 2025.

This remarkable convergence suggests that 2025 is foreordained as the year of reconciliation and redemption, the granddaddy of all jubilees. How all this plays out is yet to be seen, but one can be sure that the next seven years will be remarkable, with 2025 the bullseye.

Expect mighty signs on earth and in heaven. Waves of ‘sevens’ are now sweeping over the earth and building towards a great crescendo. “Sevens” of days, weeks, months, years, tens of years, even thousands of years are at this time piling upon one another. God can delay, but either way, 2025 is the summit of this age.

For the importance of sevens in the Bible, please see the below six-minute video put out by The Bible Project.

(If you wish, skim over the subsequent images. They are not the main point of this post but are related.)

Click here for the full image. Fractal of the “Throne Room.” The Bible Projects illustration of circles of sevens placed around the Lord at the center is the same design as the fractals. It, too, is based upon multiples of ‘7 x 70’ and is also made up of circles sculpted by fractal mathematics. It shows that the sevens that produce this fractal are intuitively buried in the Bible, which is why the artists of the Bible Project ‘thought’ of it. (Unless they got their idea from this site, which is doubtful.) The lightning that flashes to the left and right from the foot of the throne represents AD 65, which is the 30th jubilee from 1406 BC. The entire image is lodged within the heart of God, as seen in the lower fractal image.

Especially compare this last frame in the Bible Projects video on the “Sabbath” with the below main Bible fractal. Both place the inner seven circles of the kingdom within the heart of God, with larger circles behind.

The middle of this image corresponds to 70006 BC. The foot of the throne (located here within the tiny circle at his heart) is 6 BC (70,000 years later). The huge circle over the belly of the Lord spans 96040 years (49 x 49 x 40 years). The Lord stands from 122075 AD to 262086 BC from head to foot. The center of the smaller circle at the heart (where lightning flashes to the right and left) is AD 65, the 30th jubilee (1470 years) from 1406 BC. Thus, for example, from 122075 AD to 2025 AD is 49 x 49 x 50 years — an interesting time frame related to what is discussed in this post.

The Jewish shmita begins Sept. 6th, 2021

The Jewish shmita begins about a month from now, on the evening of September 6th, 2021. It lasts one full year. The shmita is the seventh year — the Sabbath year.

A few months ago, I posted an important article called:

Reconciling time with the key of 23“.

Among other things, I demonstrate that Jewish and Gentile chronologies are reconcilable. They are like the two sides of one coin. In this discussion, we focus on the jubilees of Biblical and rabbinic jubilees.

God is a God of reconciliation

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity. Eph 2:14-16

He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. Col. 2:14

Col. 2:14 refers to “legal indebtedness.” Debts were canceled in the “shmita” year and especially in the year of jubilee.

The “shmita” is the seventh year of sabbatical rest commanded in the Bible. The jubilee is an extension of this. The jubilee occurred in the 7th cycle of the shmita (49 years).

I have already written many posts about these things. Therefore I refrain from repeating myself. Moreover, all your questions, including dates, are found in these three Wikipedia articles. They will answer your questions and verify what I say from an independent source.

Reconciling actual and rabbinic jubilees

After reading the above two Wikipedia articles, one might think it impossible to reconcile these two conflicting views.

Is the jubilee 49 or 50 years?

Did Israel enter the Promised Land in 1406 or 1273 BC?

There is no doubt in my mind that the jubilee methodology held by most scholars is the correct one and that the rabbinic understanding is grossly wrong, both in dates and logic. It is the result of human tradition that refused to yield to the evidence.

Sadly, it also appears to have been an attempt to repoint Daniel’s prophecy of “490 years” away from Jesus Christ to, instead, the destruction of the second temple in “AD 68”. (Jerusalem actually fell in AD 70).

But what if God, because of His great love and unconditional promises made to their forefathers, has chosen to make straight that which is crooked by engrafting the Jewish chronology, even with its wrong dates, back into the genealogical “olive tree”? (Romans 11:11-24.)

Indeed, this is exactly what God has done.

As you will see, about a generation after Christ — shortly after the fall of Jerusalem — the rabbis ultimately devised a system to turn hearts away from Jesus Christ. However, providentially they chose figures and themes that reconnect to the true vine later in history, like a detour in the road that later rejoins the main path that leads home. The next seven years is that juncture.

Yes, Israel turned to crooked paths. But God has turned it around for good, “to save many souls.”

But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. Gen. 50:19-20.

Jubilee’s of 49 and 50 years

This will be explained simplistically. I want everyone to understand, not just those mathematically inclined. Please see the three Wikipedia articles for details.

The Jewish shmita begins about a month from now, on the evening of September 6th, 2021. It lasts one full year, which is the seventh year of rest. Observant Jews will not work the land for one year. The rabbis began their count of seven-year cycles from the fall of Jerusalem (wrongly) thought to be in AD 68 or 69. (Jerusalem actually fell in AD 70.) Jubilees were not kept during this time.

They forged a plan to redirect Daniel’s prophecy of “490 years unto Messiah” away from the Messiah (lit., “the anointed”), but instead to the anointed temple. (As said, I am simplifying this.) And in a way, they were right about the temple. After all, Jesus prophesied the destruction of the temple and compared its destruction to his own death!

Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” 

They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” But the temple he had spoken of was his body. John 2:19-20

Footnote: Jesus said this at the start of His ministry. He died three years later and rose three days later, which, therefore, equals 49 years from when Herod's temple began to be built. ("46" + 3 = 49.) It happens that "49 years" is a jubilee.

Moreover, "46" is a 23-number. It converts to 50 priestly years (336 x 50 days), which is in this sense, the jubilee of the priests. See "Reconciling time with the key of 23". Jesus' prophecy is a numeric riddle that is today explained in this post.
A crooked chronology made straight by the cross of Christ

The Rabbis adjusted dates to conform to their interpretation of Daniel 9. They said that the fall of Jerusalem (and destruction of the temple) by the Babylonians (when Jeremiah went into captivity) unto the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans is “490 years”. Because they believed the fall of Jerusalem was in AD 68, therefore 490 years before this is the summer of 423 BC. (Note: the actual dates for the fall of Jerusalem are 587/6 BC and AD 70.)

Strangely, their entire scheme was based upon a prophecy of “490 years,”, which according to the very text is divided into “49” + (49 x 9) = “490 years”, that is, ten jubilees (Dan. 9:24-27; also, see Book of Enoch and Book of Jubilees). Thus, to decree that ten jubilees are actually 500 years and not 490 is inconsistent with their own numeric foundation!

Yet, because of God’s great love, a numeric miracle happened!

By rearranging “times and laws” (Dan. 7:5) to produce the desired outcome, the rabbis faced the daunting task of reconciling their figures to true dates and earlier traditions, such as the “17 jubilees unto Ezekiel’s temple-vision” (Ezek. 40).

Their human effort to reconcile the irreconcilable had a fascinating effect, as discussed next.

The rabbinic shmita of 2021 begins the 4th and 5th cycle of “490 years” from the two times the temple was destroyed

Seder Olam Rabbah Jewish Chronology based upon the MT. For more about this chart, see  “Reconciling time with the key of 23.”
MT Chronology. Creation to Moses in the Bible. For more about this chart, see  “Reconciling time with the key of 23.”

The rabbis were by no means unanimous about the length of a jubilee. However, many believed that it repeats itself in cycles of 49 years (the correct understanding).

But according to the prevailing view, 423 BC to AD 68 are the “490 years” of Daniel 9. However, Daniel 9 assumes cycles of 490 because the entire prophecy is based upon the fulfillment of “70 years of exile”, which, therefore, must belong to a previous 490-year cycle. (The land rested “70 years” to reclaim the missed sabbath years the preceding 490 years inclusive.) Moreover, Daniel 9:24-27 tells us that the last seven years (“shmita”) of a 490-year cycle (“70 x 7”) is especially significant.

Sept. of 423 BC, plus 5 x 490 = Sept. of 2028, less one shmita (7 years) is Sept. of 2021.

Sept. of 68 AD, plus 4 x 490 = Sept. of 2028, less one shmita (7 years) is Sept. of 2021.

Moreover, “5 x 490” from the destruction of the first temple (according to the date of the rabbis) is 2450 years. As seen in the Book of Jubilees, this is a significant time frame. It means that if a jubilee is held to be 49 years, then 2450 years marks the 50th jubilee (49 x 50).

However, if a jubilee is (incorrectly) held to be “50 years”, then “2450” amounts to 49 jubilees (50 x 49). Either way, Sept. 2028 (Tishri 10th) is the 49th or 50th jubilee from the decree of Daniel 9 (in 423 BC as per the rabbis). Tishri 1oth, 2028, happens to be half-seven years from the 70th jubilee in 2025, counting from the actual year when Israel entered the Promised Land in 1406 BC, Nisan 10th.

Thus, the last “3.5 years plus 3.5 years” of the “70 x 7” years of Daniel 9:24-27 intersect in the middle of this last seven years, counting from 1406 BC and 423 BC.

This partly reconciles the jubilees of Daniel 9 when using actual dates with rabbinic dates. Moreover, the contrary length of a jubilee is also reconciled, as discussed next.

Footnote: All this is also true of 1273 BC as well, the date used by the rabbis for when Israel entered the Promised Land. As we shall see, oddly they say that the jubilees count was delayed 14 years from 1273, that is, the jubilee count began 1259 BC, not 1273. 

Curiously, 1259 BC is three jubilees (3 x 49) from 1406 BC! Thus there are 67 x 49 to Nisan 10th, 2025! This is explained later. 

Note: "1273 BC" is the traditional Jewish date. However, some adjust it ahead a year to ultimately conform to what we now know to be the actual date for the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70. The three Wikipedia articles, thus, inconsistently refer to both 1273/1259 and 1272/1258 BC.

The actual date of the Conquest versus rabbinic tradition, 1406 and 1273 BC

The date of the Exodus and Conquest of Canaan is the spring of 1446 and 1406 BC. (See the said Wikipedia articles and the above charts.) This means that the seven-year cycles (shmitas) and jubilees began in September, Tishri 1st, 1407 BC. The next shmita year, therefore, ran from Sept. 1400 to Sept. 1399 BC. (It took six years to conquer the land. In the seventh year, “the land rested from war.”)

It happens that 490 shmitas from 1406 BC is AD 2025, which is also 70 jubilees. As we shall see, this also intersects in every way with the rabbinic dates and jubilee methodology by dividing the final seven years (shmita) in half per Daniel’s prophecy. This includes the further breakdown into “a time, times, and half-a-time” (Dan. 7:25; 9:24-27).

This forms a prophetic lock and key.

49 leap months in 133 years

According to rabbinic tradition, the Exodus and Conquest occurred not in 1446 and 1406 BC but 133 years later in 1313 and 1273 BC. Thus, the shmitas and jubilees commence their count from half a year before, that is, in Sept. 1274 BC. (Some move the date forward a year to 1272 BC to adjust to AD 70, the actual year that Jerusalem fell. But the majority set the dates as 1313 and 1273 BC.)

This means a 133-year difference between 1406 BC (the actual date) and 1273 BC (the rabbinic date). This is interesting because 133 is 7 x 19. This means that the shmitas from 1406 BC run into the 1273 BC date for the conquest of the rabbis. It happens that 19 years is an important time frame in Jewish calendar keeping (and Babylonian). There are seven leap months every 19 years. Thus, in 7 x 19 years, 49 leap months are added (7 x 7) — harmonious dates considering that a jubilee is also 49 years.

To harmonize their flawed chronology, the rabbis had to add another 14 years from when Israel entered the Promised Land, and the jubilees began.

March of 1273 BC less 14 years equals 1259 BC. (Thus, also Sept. 1274 to Sept. 1260 BC.)

This is fascinating for two reasons.

133 + 14 = 147, i.e., three jubilees

Firstly, 133 + 14 years to when the jubilees really began (according to rabbinic tradition) equals exactly 147 years, which is three jubilees of 49 years!

Thus, both the shmitas and the jubilees remain in harmony no matter what date one uses, either the actual of 1406 BC or the rabbinic tradition of 1259 BC!

And like seven, “three” is a perfect number. Thus, 3 x 7 x 7 = 147 years, which was also the length of the life of Jacob/Israel, whose two names loosely mean: “The crooked one — made straight by God.”

It is hard to believe that this is a mere chance. It is far more likely that this difference of “147 years” results from the rabbis attempting to reconcile actual dates and times with their own peculiar view of Daniel 9. Moreover, 490 less 147 equals 7 x 7 x 7, and as said, there are 7 x 490 years from 1406 BC to AD 2025.

If this confluence of timeframes halted here, this would be striking enough. But it does not.

Footnote: Jacob lived "147 years" (literally from 2006-1859 BC). He worked for his two wives 7 + 7 years, beginning 490 (less 7 years) to the Exodus. 1470 years (3 x 490) after Jacob was born is 536 BC, the actual year that the angel gave Daniel the prophecy concerning the "490". It is also, therefore, 3x3x3 x 7x7 from Jacob's death when he prophesied concerning their future.
1274 and 1260 years to Messiah

Secondly, Sept. 1274 (when they entered the Promised Land) and Sept. 1260 BC (when the jubilees are counted) are both important for another reason.

In the Bible and the Book of Enoch, half of a seven-year period contains 1260 days (3.5 x 360). And in the Book of Enoch, this is said to be the same as 1274 days (3.5 x 364). The 360 and 364-day years are explained in detail elsewhere on 1260d.com.

This means that according to the traditional Jewish dates of 1274 and 1260 BC, Jesus Christ was born (according to tradition) in the 1274th and 1260th years from when they entered the land — two witnesses that Jesus is the Christ. (Jesus was circumcised and named on Jan. 1st, AD 1 — according to the tradition upon which our modern Gregorian calendar is based.)

Moreover, 1274 years is also 26 jubilees of 49 years. In gematria, to the rabbis, 26 is a very sacred number. The sacred covenantal name of God is YHWH יהוה, which adds up to 26 in gematria and “7 x 7” symbolizes total perfection.

However, the Jews began to view the jubilee as 50 years in succession and not 49.

It happens that “26 x 50” (1300) from 1274 Tishri 10th (Sept.) is AD 27, thereby making AD 26, Tishri 10th the 26th jubilee according to Jewish reckoning and according to their own date. Jesus began his ministry on this very day, Tishri 10th, 26 AD (according to many scholars) by quoting Isaiah the prophet from a passage that announced that He was the fulfillment of the Jubilee. (See The Bible Project video, “Sabbath.” Coincidentally, this article was posted 40 days before the eve of the Day of Atonement, the likely anniversary of when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan as per Luke 4.)

Jesus is the great יהוה “I AM,” come to pay our debt of sin and restore all things.

Jesus began His ministry after coming out of the wilderness where the devil tempted him for 40 days. 40 jubilees later (that is, 2000 years) brings us to the year 2026, Tishri 10th. This is examined next.

What happens when we calculate according to the 50-year jubilee of the rabbis?

The rabbis were not all in agreement that the counting of the jubilees should be delayed 14 years from when Israel entered the Promised Land, nor how the jubilees should be counted — as 49 or 50. Perhaps the added “14 years” was a ploy to avoid AD 26 as that eminent “26th jubilee”?

However, as per most of the rabbis, let us pretend that a jubilee is 50 years in succession. (See Wikipedia article.)

According to the rabbis, let us start from when they entered the Promised Land in the autumn of 1274 and spring of 1273 BC.

According to their method of reckoning, if the jubilees continued until this day (surely God keeps track!), then Sept. of 2025 would begin the 7th shmita cycle using the 50-year jubilee. Thus, Sept. 2026 would be the 66th jubilee (2000 years after Christ), which begins the “50th year” ending Sept. 2027.

Thus, from when they entered the Promised Land (according to the rabbinic date), there elapsed 3300 years from when they entered the Promised land in spring of 1273 BC (Nisan 1oth) until the spring of 2029, Nisan 10th, (66 x 50 = 3300 years).

Recall that there are 70 jubilees of 49 years from 1406 BC unto 2025 (and thus, 67 jubilees of 49 years from 1273 BC).

  • “66” is the number of man; man was created on the sixth day.
  • “70” is the number of completion; God rested on the seventh day.

Thus, Mankind is finished! This has both good and bad connotations.

This means that the next seven years are divided in half and then further subdivided into “A time, times, and a half a time,” as stated three times in the Bible, Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Rev. 12:14.

“A time, times, and a half a time” (One year, two years, and half-a-year)

“A time” (a year)

Sept. 2024 (Tishri 10th, Day of Atonement) begins the 70th (& 67th) jubilee of the correct 49-year cycles.

Sept. 2025 ends the year of jubilee, which is the 70th from 1406 (& 67th).

“…Times” (two years)

However, the 50-year methodology of the Jews means that the land lays fallow two full years, plus half a year more until sowing season begins early the next spring.

Sept. 2025 (Tishri 10th, Day of Atonement) begins the shmita cycle (if jubilees were kept from when they entered the Promised Land in Sept. 1274 BC).

Sept. 2026 begins the jubilee year so that the land lays fallow until Sept 2027.

Thus, the two fallow years of the 50-year jubilee system span from Sept. 2025 unto Sept. 2027.

“…and half a time” (and half a year)

In the spring of 2028, the time of sowing resumes, which on Nisan 10th is exactly 3300 (66 x 50) years from Nisan 10th when they crossed the Jordan and entered the Promised Land in 1273 BC.

Thus, from Tishri 10th, 2024 unto Nisan 10th, 2029 are exactly 3.5 years (half-seven years) and is divided precisely into “A time, times, and half-a-time” in agreement with the prophecy of Daniel 9.

And so what men meant for harm, God turned around for good.

And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. Dan. 7:25

Also in synchronization is the modern shmita, which dates back to AD 68

Of course, these figures assume that God is tracking the actual jubilees using the two methodologies from the two dates for when they entered the Promised Land.

However, amazingly, even using the actual shmita year that is based upon the AD 68 date as explained earlier, even it intersects with all this, as said, from Sept. of 2021 unto Sept. of 2028, which is 490 x 4 and 490 x 5 from the two times the temple was destroyed, as per the interpretation of the rabbis concerning Dan. 9.

We are witnessing a coming together of all jubilee systems to point to a specific seven-year period that is broken down into all the biblical components. And this seven-years happens to the starting in just one month from now, Sept. 6, 2021.

The date overlapped in the middle of all this is the year 2025, which is 77 years from when Israel became a nation. Both “77” and “70 x 7” are numbers that symbolize reconciliation and redemption.

The time has come to be reconciled with God!

Repent and believe the good news!

Jesus Christ is Lord!

For the advanced student: Observe that the Day of Atonement this year on the Jewish calendar, 2021, can symbolize the day-year 1259 BC. 

14 day-years before this, therefore, is as 1273 BC, which corresponds to Elul 25th, 2021 (Neh. 6:14; Neh. 8) the anniversary of when Nehemiah completed the walls of Jerusalem in fulfillment of the decree prophesied in Dan. 9.

The last seven years of Daniel’s 490

The prophecy of Daniel 9 presents the last seven years in the grand 490-year cycle as pivotal.

Subtract seven years from 2024t and you get 2017t. This makes 2017t the start of the 490th Shmita. (Technically, 2017t begins the 489th or 490th Shmita year because the land on the east side of the Jordan rested from war seven years prior, {Deut. 3:20; Josh 11:23}. But this does not affect the actual Shmita year or Jubilee cycles, only the possibility of one additional missed Shmita for several tribes of Israel.)

How the well-known 2014-2015 Lunar-Tetrad Eclipses and the Solar in 2017 are superbly linked

Both the lunar and solar eclipses occur on a Shmita

The year 2014t was the total Lunar Shmita Eclipse, about which I devoted a full year of research and wrote extensively. It was part of a unique tetrad, that is, four total lunar eclipses, each half-a-year apart, each landing on Passover or Tabernacles in both 2014 and 2015 – and is very rare.

Thus, God marked the 2014t Shmita with the lunar eclipse. But because the original Shmita begins from Creation itself (4115t), and it is in alignment with the Conquest (1406), the 70-year exile that includes the 49 years from the fall of Jerusalem to the return (587-538), it is therefore the dominate cycle. As the dominate Shmita, God has marked 2017 by this total Solar eclipse.

Note the divine order: although the sun (solar) dominates the moon (lunar), yet the night precedes the day. So it is with the function and timing of the eclipses.

“And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, …and the evening and the morning were the fourth day” (Gen 1:16,19).

And it is the pattern of Creation itself: God created everything in six days; three days of forming in parallel to the next three days of filling, (Gen 1). Thus, light was created on the first day, but the sun and moon three days later. (Deut 14:28 is based upon this pattern. Also see Dan 9:27, “the middle of the week”.)
Moreover, Jesus rose the third day. He is the Light before Sunlight. His seven-year ministry cut short in the middle. When Jesus hung on the cross, the Sun shone three hours, then Light abnormally darkened three hours – “A darkness that could be felt,” (Ex 10:21-23). But in three days the Sun rose, preceded by the Morningstar, (Matt 27:45; 28:1; Rev 22:16). Ponder this to understand what eclipses mean.

We will not go into detail in this blog, but both Shmitas (2014 and 2017) ultimately have their origin in Creation. See below charts if you wish to know how that works. It’s important if one wants to understand how God calculates jubilees and missed jubilees – to be explained later.

(Click to enlarge images.) All Jubilee and Shmita cycles originate from the Creation in perfect precision.

NOTE: Due to the extra half-year at Moses, the book of Genesis places the Creation at 4115t or 4114n. Moses was already 80 at the burning bush (1447t, Exo 7:7; Num 33:39; Exo 12:2), and hence 80.5 at the Exodus (1446n) when God in effect said, ‘From now on, Spring will be the New Year for you’—thus adding half-a-year. (The amazing effects of Acts 6 await a future blog. And see above charts.)

Moreover, when counting jubilees from Creation, be sure to add one full year because the Shmita and Jubilee are announced at the end of six full years, not seven. That’s why Adam died at 930 –the 19th jubilee of his life.

When does the Jubilee begin?

Jewish scholars (and the Talmud) insist that the jubilee cannot restart until all 12 tribes return to the Land. So, when we speak of the jubilee, we refer to the original one that began 1406 BC. As it is written…

“When ye come into the land which I give you (1406 BC), then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto the LORD… In the seventh year shall be a Sabbath,” (Lev. 25:2,4 KJV).

As we will show, although men no longer keep the jubilee (and collectively, Israel never kept it anyway), yet God still tracks it!
Why does God track it?

Because it symbolizes and proclaims the First and Second Comings of Jesus Christ. “HE IS OUR SABBATH REST”! (Hebrews 3-4).

Important side note for the advanced student: the modern Jewish year from Creation (3761t BC), which is based upon faulty chronology, is nevertheless perfectly aligned. Not long after Christ, in an attempt to appropriate known facts, yet force the terminus ad quem of Dan 9 to be AD 70 (68), someone determined the Conquest as c.1273 BC, and eventually the date stuck.
But the effect was providential!

The Conquest date of 1273 BC simply shifted forward seven Metonic cycles (133 years) from its true date of 1406, with the effect that 1273 now aligned with the jubilees from the actual Creation date of 4115t, (and with 930, 734, 685, 587, 538 BC (i.e., 931t et al).

On the other hand, (to agree with Ezek 40:1) they invented a 14-year delay from the Conquest until when, allegedly, the jubilees officially began. This meant that according to their reckoning the first jubilee began in 1259 BC. However, the effect of this was to shift the jubilee three cycles ahead of the correct date of 1406 BC!

(1406 less 49*3 = 1259 BC, plus 14 years is 1273.)

In other words, according to Jewish reckoning, (which is the very datum used in Israel today), 2024t-2025t is the 67th jubilee (had they never gone into exile), but really it is the 70th. Either way, it’s the same jubilee cycle.

Jubilees are not 50-year cycles, but 49-year cycles

As most bible-students know, a jubilee does not occur in 50-year cycles, but 49-year cycles. The “50th year”, is counted either inclusive or exclusive of the 49th year. (Scholars are divided on the issue.) But either inclusive or exclusive, the consensus view is that the seven-year Shmita cycle remains in synchronization with the 49-year jubilee cycle.

It’s sad that a few still calculate jubilees as if 50+50+50, etc. Both biblical (Lev 25) and extra biblical evidence refutes this, (e.g., Book of Jubilees, Book of Enoch, Dead Sea Scrolls, Samaritan jubilee cycles).

1406n BC is the Date of the Conquest

(Entry to Promised Land, with the harvest New Year commencing 1407t)

1406 BC is the consensus date of modern evangelical scholarship, and confirmed by Talmudic tradition in regard to jubilees, (e.g., Ezekiel’s vision in 574t, or 573n, said to be on the ‘17th jubilee’). It is the date most frequently found in bibles, books, and scholarly articles. Exceptions to this are typically due to the failure to account for overlapping reigns in the chronology of the kings of Judah. The overlap of certain father-and-son kings of Judah is apparent when compared to the kings of Israel. (Or it is the failure to take 1Kgs 6:1 literally.)

Do you believe in coincidences?

If you add up the overlapped years of the Kings of Judah, they amount to exactly 49 years and 10 days (or 50 years and 10 days, depending on whether one takes the fall of Jerusalem to be 586 or 587 BC). This is exactly the number of years in a jubilee –to the very day. It also takes in both the “inclusive” and “exclusive” spans of a jubilee, (Tishri 1 to Tishri 10th, plus the 49, or 50 years).

So then, amazingly, one can even ignore modern evangelical scholarship and the Jewish Talmud and still agree that 2024t is the year of Jubilee!

In conclusion, to the traditionalist Jew 2024t is the 67th jubilee.
To the old-school Christian chronologist, it’s the 71st.
But to the vast majority –and the actual one –it’s the 70th.
My friend, that’s a very large swath of agreement!

The eclipse is in America, what about the rest of the world?
I’m a Canadian. I am fully aware that America does not represent the whole world. But America has been a light to the world. If its light goes out – watch out!


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 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. Also note the rare metonic/draconic total solar eclipses on the Spring Equinox in 2015 and 2034 to precisely mark this 7th cycle of 70*7-years of Dan 9.)

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

Part One: Why Solar Eclipse of 2017 Launches 490th “Shmita-Cycle”

(Because, 70 jubilees elapse from the Conquest to AD 2025)

(To Part Two)

Jesus said, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21:25)

God commanded every seventh year to be a Sabbath year –the year of the Shmita. Messianic Rabbi Johnathan Cahn has popularized the Hebrew word “Shmita” among Christians, and we will use the same word in this article. (As we shall see, the modern Shmita occurs three years before the one in 2017. We will explain. But in order to quickly get to the heart of the matter, some anticipated questions will be answered in the next blog.)

“Shmita” in Hebrew means “release”—the “release” from servitude or indebtedness, and to desist one year from field work.  (Lev 25; 26:33-43; Deut 15; Jer 25:11; 29:10; Dan 9; Ezra 1; Neh 10:31; Zech 1:12; 7:5.)

Why does the modern Shmita occur three years before the Shmita of 2017t to 2018?

There is no contradiction!

The last Shmita kept by modern Israel was 2014t to 2015. (The “t” stands for the month of Tishri, roughly our September.)

However, the modern Shemitah does not claim to be related to the original one, which began when Israel entered the Promised Land (1406 BC). The contemporary Shmita is based upon the return from Babylonian Exile. (It very likely commenced 444t BC; compare Neh 8:14-18; 10:31; with Deut 31:10 and Dan 9.)

Therefore there runs two parallel seven-year cycles, separated by three years. Jews today follow the cycle that began at the return of the exile led by Ezra (and Nehemiah), but God also still keeps track of the original one because of its eternal prophetic importance.

Why is the 70th jubilee (2024t to 2025) important?

  • Because the jubilee is comprised of sevens, (7*7).  (In the bible, seven is the number of completion.)

 

  • Because 70 jubilees is the same as seven cycles of 490 years, (the period mentioned in Dan. 9, which also has to do with missed Shmitas)

 

  • Because 70 jubilees amount to 490 missed Shmitas (70*7*7, Dan. 9)

 

  • Because Israel turns 77 years old from its birth as a nation in 1948 to 2025, and Jesus directly links the number “77” to “70*7” in Matt 18:22. (Because, the Greek can read either as 77 or 70*7.)

 

  • 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 15:16) And who’s 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).

Thomas Noss has laid out the importance of the 70th jubilee in a less congested style. God bless him for that.

The eclipse of 2017 marks the last seven-year cycle before the 70th jubilee

 

  • God has used solar eclipses as signs before. The following is lengthy — but extremely important. It shows that God has used eclipses in the past to communicate His plans and can be expected to do so again. Jesus said, “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” (Luke 21:25). Around July of 1406 BC, the same year the jubilee count begins, Joshua commanded the sun and moon to stand still while Israel defeated the Amorites, (Josh 10:12). However, there was another celestial sign left unrecorded that occurred about the same time.

On July 14, 1406 BC, at the front paws of the constellation (stars) of Leo, an actual total solar eclipse occurred. Compare the similarity of location of the two eclipses. (Click to enlarge.)

1406 BC, July 14. Total Solar Eclipse as seen from Rome .
Aug 21, 2017. Total Solar Eclipse as seen from Salem, US.

Thus, the 1406 BC eclipse is the same location as our 2017 eclipse. To understand the eclipse at the start of the jubilees is to understand the 2017 eclipse at the end, nearly 70 jubilees later. Therefore, ponder the following carefully!

On July 14, 1406 BC, as Israel fought the Amorites, the path of the moon’s narrow shadow ominously crossed key demonic high places in one long curved line. It began near the place Columbus would later sail home after discovering America, passed through Spain, then over the seven hills of Rome, then the Greek gods of Mt. Olympus, Island of Patmos along with the seven churches of the Book of Revelation, Tarsus, then along the southern side of the northern border of Israel (thus visible by warring Israel, Josh 10). This includes Mt. Hermon of Bashan where the watcher-angels rebelled. It then continued along the Euphrates river to Babylon, Ur and Eridu (Tower of Babel), then out the mouth of the Euphrates (the eastern-most border that God promised to Israel), and Susa (of Persia), and then finally ends at Bombay India, the great Hindu metropolis.

The further back in time, the greater the uncertainty regarding the exact path of an eclipse, but the above map is the mean location.)

More about the Fallen Angels:

Moses prophesied the day he died “at 120 years of age” (i.e., 120.5) concerning the future of the 12 tribes of Israel. That day happened to have been exactly six months before the July 14, 1406 eclipse, (Deut 1:3; 34:7-8). Moreover, there just happened to have been an annular eclipse occurring elsewhere in the world on this very day! On this same day, Moses prophesied about two tribes in particular that when overlapped like the sun and moon foretold the eclipse of July 14, 1406 BC… The tribes of Dan and Manasseh (Joseph).

(Manasseh inherited Mt Hermon of Bashan, the land of the Giants, [Deut 3:11; Jos 12:4; 13:12; Num 32:33]. Dan leaped toward that direction and later relocated near there. The book of Enoch [and other sources] inform us that Mt Hermon is where the angels “sons of God” descended from “heaven”, Gen 6:2, but were judged and sent to the “deep”. Recall that this eclipse occurred in the heavens where the crouching lion (Leo) leaps upon the prey of the “sun” and “moon” overlapped by the eclipse. Compare all this to the key elements of the prophecy to Joseph and Dan.

“And of Joseph he said, Blessed of Jehovah be his land, For the precious things of heaven, for the dew, And for the deep that crouches [like a lion] beneath, And for the precious things of the fruits of the sun, And for the precious things of the growth of the moons…”
“And of Dan he said, “Dan is a lion’s cub that leaps from Bashan.”(Deut 33:14,22).

Yet another total solar eclipse occurred 40 years earlier on the very day that God said, “This month to you will be the first of the month”. This was the very New Year inaugurated by Moses at the Exodus (1446n). (As with the 360- calendar, there may have been a leap-month that year, if so, then the eclipse fell on 2Adar). This total solar eclipse passed over the source of the Nile River (recall the first plague), at Lake Victoria, and was thus visible from Upper Egypt.

(Click to enlarge.) NASA 20-years of  eclipses from 1460 to 1441 BC

Moreover, the Exodus eclipse occurred at the bands of Pisces (Fishes), next to the women in chains (Andromeda).  The bands of Pisces have long symbolized the slavery of Israel in Egypt.

This eclipse on the New Year of the Exodus was also likely at, or very near the same time God that supernaturally brought “darkness over all the land of Egypt three days”, (Ex 10:21-23). (It was the 9th plague, and thus about two weeks before the Exodus, Ex 11:8-12:3).

Six months before this total solar eclipse, which is when the plagues upon Egypt began, there was an annular solar eclipse over southern Africa. Thus, the six (or 7) months of the ten plagues began and ended with a solar eclipse in Africa; the first one upon the former autumn New Year, and the second one upon the newly commanded spring New Year!

“I’ll execute judgments on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD,” (Exod 12:12).

Thus, God marked His territory with eclipses! (God marks the southern border about 70 jubilees later, as discussed in Part Two.)

(Click to enlarge.) God marks an “X” over the southern boundary promised to Abraham that reaches along the Nile River to the Euphrates, while blotting out Mecca and Medina.

 

  • The 2017 total solar eclipse over America has similar meaning. To many, North America is the equivalent of the Promised Land. As a matter of fact, the very day Columbus left port and discovered America, Jews were exiled from Spain. God claims America as His.

 

  • This eclipse divides America in half, and symbolizes a divided nation. (Isn’t this what America has become politically?)“Mene, Mene, Tekel, Uparsin”, “…your kingdom is divided…” (Dan 5). (From the fall of Babylon in 539t BC, unto 2017t are 2555 years. (A solar year is 365 days, and “2555” equals 7 x 365, and therefore is also in alignment with the Shmitas).

 

  • The first major city that the eclipse passes through is Salem, Oregon, which is another name for Jerusalem, meaning “Peace”. Peace is removed from America.“In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion… At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep… Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven”, (Psalm 76:2,6,8). Salem is therefore symbolic of Jerusalem.

 

  • Salem was visited by another total solar eclipse exactly 38.5 years ago. It is very rare for a city to be visited by two total solar eclipses within 40 years. But the 39 years between these two eclipses means that 1979 (Feb.) was 70 jubilees (less seven years) from when God intended Israel to enter the Promised Land, that is, from when they left Mt Sinai one year after the Exodus, (1446/5 BC).

Thus God highlights Salem as a simply play on words to remind us that North America was dedicated to God just as Jeru’salem’ and the real Promised Land was back in 1406 BC.


I will explain everything soon, but as a sneak preview:

(In the following, I have condensed the information for the sake of simplicity and brevity. But we are talking exact years in every way.)

Both 1492-3 (when America was discovered, i.e., “The New Promised Land”), and 1947-8 (when Israel returned to the actual Promised Land) are Shmita years (65*7 apart). And from 1492 to the Salem eclipse of 1979-1986 is one-seventh of the full 490*7 from the Exodus, accounting for the missed Shimitas. And from 1492t to 2024t are 76 missed Shmitas, which in turn span from 1948-2024. And from 1948 to 2025 are 77 years, and thus 11 missed Sabbaths back to 2014t.

This creates a narrowing residual effect like birth pangs, thereby reversing the effects of Leviticus 26:18. Thus, 1492, 1948 and 2014 are all starting points for birth pangs — counting down to the final two years of jubilee (2024t-2026t). Moreover, each of these starting points were marked by rare Passover/Tabernacles Tetrad Lunar Eclipses.

(Click to enlarge.) All Tetrad Lunar Eclipses that land on Passover and Tabernacles up to the present time.

In other words, God is counting missed Shmitas from 1492, just as He did for Israel of old from 1445/1406 BC, (Lev 26:34; 2Chr 36:21; Jer 34:17). The two “Promised Lands” (1406 BC and 1492 AD) are synchronized by one-seventh in the same way that the 1000-year reign of Christ’s (Sabbath-Rest) on earth when He returns will be one-seventh the total years from Creation. (Rounded: 6000 + 1000 = 7000 years. Notice that 3430/3500 yrs are also in synchronicity.) Thus, just as Israel went into captivity according to the years they missed their Sabbaths, so will North America. (We will explain all this in detail later.) Like Babylon of old (539 BC), the fall of the one will mark the restoration of the other.

All numeric patterns in the bible are self-similar because they are a fractal. The first image on the home page of 1260d.com is a small part of this massive fractal, created by these jubilees. It is my joy to eventually explain all this in future blogs.

(Click to enlarge.) The same math that creates patterns throughout the bible and history also creates this language: a supernatural bible fractal of God’s throne room. (It’s one of those images that’s hard to make out until someone explains it; then it’s easy! Also, the colors shift so as to emphasize different aspects of the image, but here it is static.)

  • Every year, all Israel was commanded to go to (Jeru)Salem to celebrate the feast of Tabernacles. However, during the Shmita year they also had the book of Deuteronomy read to them, (Deut 31:10). It happens that just two days before the eclipse (Aug 19-21), as part of the assigned reading to Jews throughout the world, the passage to be read happens to be from Deut 11:26-16:17. It concerns the Shmita and the feast of Tabernacles! Some Messianic synagogues include with this portion John 9-10 that begins with Jesus stating that He is “the light of the world”, and that we should ‘walk while you have the light’. Therefore, to Christians God says, “Make use of the time you have now. Judgement will not delay forever. Unnatural darkness is coming.Jesus said:

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light (Sun) of the world,” (John 9:4-5).

 

  • God keeps track of the regular Jewish (luni-solar) calendar, our Gregorian Solar calendar, and the prophetic 360 calendar. On the 360 calendar of the prophets, “the 7th month, 15th day” (i.e., Tabernacles) falls on the exact day of the eclipse. The 360 calendar facilitated predictions about world events far in advance, such as the date that Saddam Hussein, king of Babylon/Iraq, would hang, and the exact minute of the great Joplin tornado of 2011 that divided their city. Moreover, the Shmita Lunar Eclipse of 2014 fell on Tishri 14th, but which on the 360 calendar that year was the 17th of the seventh month. Therefore, on the 360 calendar, both the Shmita lunar eclipse of 2014 and the Shmita solar eclipse of 2017 occurred on Tabernacles. Recall the scripture:

“At the end of every seven years, in the set time of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles, …read this law before all Israel,” (Deut 31:10-11).

Exactly one month after the 2017 eclipse is the regular Jewish New Year – the official start of the 490th seven-year cycle.

(Note: Providentially, this article was  published July 23-24 (incorrectly shows as June 22), 2017, with one  month left to the eclipse. This is the exact anniversary of the same day and month that Israel mourned for their first high-priest, Aaron, when he died exactly-to-the-day 70-jubilees ago, less  the seven years. [Aaron died 70 days before the Day of Atonement, the day when the jubilee was proclaimed retroactively, Lev 25:8-10. A day for each jubilee till now -- 30 of mourning until Christ, plus 40 till now. Moses repeats the same pattern six months later -- except 70 days to when Israel crossed the Jordan into the Promised Land). The death of the high priest has a similar meaning as the jubilee, for on the day that he dies those who had fled to a city of refuge could return home. Josh 20:6; Num 20:29; 33:39.)
