“You shall count off seven Sabbaths of years, seven times seven years; and there shall be to you the days of seven Sabbaths of years, even forty-nine years. 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. You shall make the fiftieth year holy, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee to you; and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.” (Leviticus 25: 8-10)
God has provided instruction on exactly what will come to pass and what mankind needs to do to fulfill its obligation to their creator. The Jewish people have been ritually partaking in appointed Holidays that signify the prophetic events that were prophesied to be completed. This ritualistic participation is widely known to be “rehearsals” for the prophetic event that will pass. Many have heard of the Shemitah and its importance in respect to God’s instruction toward debt and inheritance and even less have evaluated the year of the Jubilee that occurs every 50 years.
The importance of these years can be seen throughout history. For example, the most recent two Jubilee years were during the years of 1917-18 and 1967-68, leaving the 2017-18 year as the newest Jubilee year. Many miss this interpretation as they anticipate the interval being every 7 years instead of considering the additional 50th year added to the equation. With this in mind, every 50 years constitutes the important year that debt is supposed to be eliminated and any property lost during the prior 49 years is to be returned to the previous owner. The criteria on how to do such transfer is laid out in the 25th chapter of Leviticus.
History has proven to mankind that if God instructs man to act, and they don’t, God will make mankind act. This is true considering the years of 1917-18 and 1967-68. On November 2, 1917 the Balfour Declaration was signed allowing the creations of an Israeli state within the land of Palestine. This declaration allowed for the creation of the State of Israel. Coincidentally, on June 5th 1967 the Six-Day War occurred. During this war, Israel defeated Egypt, Syria and Jordan in six days while inheriting East Jerusalem in the process. In both instances, the outcome is the return of property to its rightful owner, Israel. The next Jubilee year (Jewish year 5777) of 2017-18 represents the 50th anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem and the 100 Anniversary of the re-institution of the Jewish homeland.
These anniversary dates are very important to evaluate considering the rare alignment of other dates that occur within the Jubilee year of 2017-18. One such occurrence happens over the skies of the Unites States on August 21st 2017. During that day, the United States will experience a very unique solar eclipse that touches every state in the continental United States, and no other country. This has only happened one other time in history and that was in 1776. To make things more intriguing, the United States will experience another solar eclipse 7 years later. Only this solar eclipse will start in the southwest United States and head converse to the prior eclipse, thus creating a large X over the USA. Currently, the prophetic importance of this 7 year period of time is unknown but the most recognized 7 year period found within the Bible is the Great Tribulation.
Additionally, the prophetic sign of Revelation 12 will be see in the heavens on September 23rd 2017. We are told of a woman who is with child, about ready to give birth, who has a crown of 10 stars, clothed by the Sun with the Moon at her feet. This prophetic sign will be seen within the Virgo Constellation on September 23rd 2017 (for additional information…..Blood Moons and the Solar Eclipse of 2017).
Further evaluation of the association of the August 21st and September 23rd dates leads us to the book of Leviticus. Taking in consideration that the Church is regarded as the Bride of Christ, the verses found within Leviticus are very enlightening. Within chapter 12 are instructions on how women should purify their bodies after giving birth. Considering the Sign in Revelation 12 is of a woman giving birth we must know the cleansing process.
This instruction from God depicts a 33 day period that is required for a women to cleanse their body, after giving birth, prior to entering Solomon’s Temple. An additional 7 days are added when a male child is conceived. According to Revelation 12, we know that the woman will have a male child and the 40 days of cleansing will be needed. There are 33 days that separate the dates of August 21st and September 23rd. When adding the additional 7 days we come to September 30th, which is the Day of Atonement according to the Jewish calendar. The Day of Atonement is the day the Jewish High Priest would conduct the sacrifice to cleanse the Jewish people of their sins.
In other words September 30th 2017 is significant as it also represents the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah (also known as the Day of Atonement). The year of God’s blessing (Jubilee year) comes to an end and the prophetic sign found within Revelation 12 appears 7 days prior to the end of the year! Combined with the teachings found within Leviticus 12:1, the Jewish year of 5778 will be a very important year!
To add more mystery to the equation, September 23rd 2017 represents the 70 year anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel. Scripture indicates that all the prophetic signs will be witnessed by one generation, and Scripture also indicates that a generation is 70 years. God waited until the completion of the entire 70 years prior to revealing his sign in Heaven!
God is making his presence known to all who are willing to listen. We must watch and while we watch we must be willing to see. According to Scripture, all will be revealed. As so many events are unfolding around the world, combined with the prophetic signs in Heaven, it can be assumed that mankind is currently witnessing the unfolding of God’s Great Mystery!
Please continue to watch and pray. Things are about to get very interesting!
