How do we know the Shmittah (Sabbath) and Yovel (Jubilee) Year Cycle?

The Babylonian captivity (605-536 B.C.) lasted seventy years because Israel violated 70 Sabbath years. (Leviticus 26:31-35; 2 Chronicles 36:21,22) God reckoned the apostacy of Judah and Israel to be 430 years. (Ezekiel 4:5,6) The number of Sabbath years in 430 years is 70! This proves mathematically a Jubilee cycle has to be a repetition of “seven sevens” which is 49 years. God established the annual feast of Pentecost as an annual “shadow” of the Jubilee Calendar. The 50th day always fell on the first day of the week. - Wake Up America

Some will notice and question how one can get 70 Sabbath years out of 430 years. It is true, you only have 7 Sabbath years in a 49 year period, but you also have a Jubilee year (the 1st year of the 49 year cycle), which is a rest year also. Hence, there are actually 8 years in every 49 where the Land of Israel is supposed to rest, thus one cannot simply divide 430 by 7.

In his book, Know the Future p.96, Tim McHyde goes into great detail explaining why the Jubilee (Yovel) is a 49 year cycle, not a 50 year cycle. An opposing and prevailing Talmudic view (also held by many End Time scholars) is that there is a 49th, 50th, and then a separate 1st year (starting the count anew). McHyde writes:

Identifying the historic Sabbath and Jubilee year cycles is not as hard as it at first sounds. As we covered above, every Sabbath year must be a multiple of seven years from any other, just as every Jubilee year must be a multiple of 49 years (not 50) from any other. So, if you have evidence for enough Sabbath or Jubilee years across history, you can easily validate them against each other and come to a harmony that points to what the true cycles are. p.98

Qadesh La Yahweh Press is one of the few groups of chronologists that go by the 49 year cycle (continuous cycle of 7 years). In other words, instead of adding 50 to 50 to 50 and so on... they add 49 to 49 to 49. What follows is one of their more important findings:

"...the book of Nehemiah places Ezra's public reading of the Law during the Feast of Tabernacles, thereby signifying a sabbath year, in the seventh month of the twentieth Persian year of Arta-xerxes I, while Josephus, I Esdras, and the book of Ezra place it in his eighth Babylonian year. Nevertheless, both dates represent the same year, 456/455 B.C.E. The next year, 455/454 B.C.E., was a Jubilee. As we proceed with the evidence for subsequent sabbath years, it will become quite apparent that these above dates are correct and represent the original sabbath and Jubilee cycle." -The Sabbath and Jubilee Cycle, p.168.

Connecting the start of Jesus/Yehoshua's ministry to a Sabbath Year, McHyde writes:

...if 456/455 BCE was a Sabbath year, then 28/29 CE, some 69 Sabbath year cycles later, would indeed be a Sabbath year (-456 + 7 * 69 + 1 for no year zero). If Jesus proclaimed a Sabbath year to fulfill Isaiah 61 at the end of the 69th Week, then we can reasonably expect him to fulfill that prophecy fully in another Sabbath year at the end of the 70th Week. p.99

2009/2010 CE will be the next Sabbatical Year (according to this reckoning), with 2016, 2023, 2030, 2037, 2044, etc... following subsequently. Also, 2045/2046 CE will be the next known Jubilee Year based upon the findings of Yahweh.org and others (49 * 39 + 134 = 2045). 134 CE was found to have been a Jubilee Year, including several confirmed previous Jubilee years that reinforce the 134 CE dated event.

  1. I agree that the Jubilee cycles are 49 years in length, even in the face of much opposition from those who believe in 50 year cycles. There is a lot of historical evidence which supports continuous 7 and 49 year cycles, including the prophecy of Daniel 9 (70 weeks prophecy). However, there is much disagreement on WHEN exactly these cycles take place.

    I have done a lot of research into these subjects and would like to give others the opportunity to take a closer look at the Jubilee cycles as they relate to the first and second coming of Messiah. I am coming close to finishing 2 books on the subject, and on my website you will find an Excel file which gives my Jubilee Calendar going back about 6000 years into the past.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Shalom,

  2. Thank you Glenn, for sharing the link. I tried visiting it with IE7 and FireFox, and it froze the browser for both. It seems it is trying to automatically download a large video or something.

    Thank you again for sharing. May YHVH bless you and your work.

  3. I find this all very fascinating! However i have a question regarding this first quote:

    “The Babylonian captivity (605-536 B.C.) lasted seventy years because Israel violated 70 Sabbath years. (Leviticus 26:31-35; 2 Chronicles 36:21,22) God reckoned the apostacy of Judah and Israel to be 430 years. (Ezekiel 4:5,6) The number of Sabbath years in 430 years is 70! This proves mathematically a Jubilee cycle has to be a repetition of “seven sevens” which is 49 years. God established the annual feast of Pentecost as an annual “shadow” of the Jubilee Calendar. The 50th day always fell on the first day of the week.”

    He says the number of sabbath years in 430 is 70, but when I divide 430 by 7 I get 61.42. It totally makes sense what he is saying about the sabbath years always being multiples of seven and the jubilee years always being multiples of 49 with the first of 49 occuring on the 1st year of a seven year cycle, but since every Sabbath year must be a multiple of seven years from any other sabbath year then you would have to say that 7×70=490. That is the number of years equal to 70 full 7 year sabbath cycles. Isn’t it?

    Am I missing something here?

    Thanks for any clarity or help you guys can give.

  4. Hi John,

    Thank you for your input. The Wake Up America ministry came up with that number by calculating 7 Sabbath years and 1 Jubilee year for each 49 year period. So the 49th year of the cycle is a Sabbath and the next year, year 1 of the next cycle, was also like a Sabbath year where the land was suppose to rest (see Leviticus 25:11). Thus, 8 years per 49 year period where the Land wasn’t given rest. See the table below for a better visual of the calculation.

    Cycle / Years / Sabbaticals
    1        49        8
    2        49        8
    3        49        8
    4        49        8
    5        49        8
    6        49        8
    7        49        8
    8        49        8
    9        38        6
    Total / 430 / 70

    Hope that helps! Shalom Aleichem!

  5. Thanks that makes perfect sense. I didn’t even think about adding the extra jubilee years as sabbath years also.

  6. I have heard some teachings lately that say 1967 was a jubilee year. From what I understand of the above calculations 1996 would have been a jubilee year. Which if either, is correct?

  7. Yeah, 1996/1997 is what I’ve calculated as a Jubilee with the help of The Sabbath and Jubilee Cycle by R. Clover (Qadesh La Yahweh Press) . See the table of years on this page: Timeline of the Last Days – Daniel’s 3Layer Shavua Prophecy. I have their fairly evidential and historical Sabbath and Jubilee years pegged in the table with red. All the Sabbath and Jubilee years are not listed yet, but the incremental gaps can be easily filled in with a calculator and spreedsheet.

    By the way, 1967 was a Sabbath Year.

  8. If the punishment in 2 Chronicles 36:21-22 is “70 years for 70 violated Sabbaths”, then why is the punisment in Ezekiel 4:5 “390 years for 64 violated sabbaths”?

    It seems that the number of years worth of punishment told to Ezekiel is not merely for violating Sabbath years, rather (according to Ezekiel 5:6-7) for violating a plethora of Laws, statutes and judgments over a 390 year time frame.

    Likewise, why was Judah punished “40 years for 6 violated Sabbath years”? I don’t understand this, especially in light of Yah saying He would punish them “a day for a year”. It seems that they either violated 40 Sabbath years or 40 years of a plethora of Torah commands.

    Also: The math does not add up when we calculate the length of Israel’s decreed punishment (390 days) without adding Judah’s (40 days). In other words, the 430 year punishment is the total punishment for BOTH Israel AND Judah. But these two nations were violating the SAME yearly sabbaths at the SAME time, and according to “Wake Up America Ministries” account, it was a total of 70 sabbath years, not 430! If this was a total of 70 violated Sabbaths, then the punishment would have been “70 total days on Ezekiel’s side”.

    Also: Would Yah punish Israel for Judah’s crimes or Visa verse (Judah for Isreal’s)? If not, then why do we add the 390 to 40 in order to figure the Sabbaths? Afterall, Ezekiel had to switch sides. One side is apples, the other is oranges. One Israel. The other Judah.

    Somethings not adding up. Something seems fishy to me.

    Maybe I’m missing something. If I am, please send me an E-mail at:
    sprjeff@praiseyah.com

    I am also trying to figure the proper Jubilee. 49 or 50 year, I just want the proper cycle. My opinion doesn’t matter. Yah’s does.

    Thank you very mush for your time!

    Looking forward to your response.

  9. Hi Jeff,
    I don’t think there is necessarily a direct link between 10-Israel’s 390 years of Ezekiel 4 and Judah’s 70 years found in II Chronicles 36:21-22. It does indeed take 430 years to build up 70 unobserved rest years, but it may just be coincidence that we have an apparent 430 derivative in both passages… even though 430 is never mentioned in either. I try to cover some of this in the article: Understanding “Ezekiel 4″ and the 390, 40, and 430 Year Periods. I too have struggled with your whole “apples” and “oranges” conundrum (and I still do).

    I would agree that 10-Israel’s period of 390 years of transgression included more than just not observing Sabbath land rest years. Several places in I and II Kings mention the sin that Jeroboam taught the northern kingdom. It is interesting that from the time of Jeroboam (where the North and South split) to the time of the destruction of the First Temple, we have about 390 years.

    I’m completely convinced the 49 year increment is the correct one. The Jubilee is the 50th year, but the 50th year is also the 1st year of the next 49 year cycle. It is very similar to the Counting of the Omar, where Shavuot/Pentecost is both the 50th day, but also the 1st day of the next week.

    I’ll shoot you an email after posting this reply.

    Shalom shalom…

  10. Thank you for your response Sir. I do understand your opinion, and you may be right, I am not positive of whether 49 year cycle or 50. But I lean toward the 50th year. It’s hard to understand how the 1st year of the new cycle can be a “rest” year and a “work” year. But again, I admit, I don’t know for sure.

    A MAIN reason that I am leaning toward the 50 year cycle is because of: Genesis 6:3

    Genesis 6:3
    And the Yah said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years (units of time). Strongs # 8141

    What I see happening in the Scripture verse is Yah saying that man has a stubborn heart, he is stiff-necked and continually doing wrong. Yah is angry at this behavior so he declares “man will reign in his current state for 6,000 years….. then in the 7,000th, the Messiah will reign, and man will be restored to “know Yah”, when this prophecy comes to pass, “no longer will anyone need to teach others about Yah, for all will know Him, from the least even to the greatest (see Jeremiah 31:31-34, Isaiah 11:1-9, Ezekiel 37:1-14 …etc.).” This is how I understand these prophecies and this is how I see Genesis 6:3 fitting in. This is why I strongly lean toward the 50 year cycle. Quite simply, 120 jubilees (or units) of 50 years each, adds up to 6,000 years.

    Just some thoughts.

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    May Yah lead us into all truth :0)

  11. Back in October of last year I wrote a short article on that specific issue: Does Genesis 6:3 mean there will be exactly 120 Jubilees before the End of Mankind? Many people have a very strong emotional attachment to the 50 x 120 concept, as did I… until I was exposed to R. Clover’s work on The Sabbath and Jubilee Cycle. If you give the evidence time and yourself enough time to connect the dots, you’ll find that your leaning might tilt toward the 49 year increment. You should be able to download the complete pdf book from the title link above. It is very interesting how shmita and jubilee years as far back as 701 BCE and 456 BCE can be identified and plotted forward and be reconnected with shmita years near and during Yeshua’s life… and then continued all the way up into our time. There really isn’t any reason to pick obscure possible dates when so much can be connected with near certainty with all the data we have today. According to the Aviv reckoning, we just entered a Shmita year. The next Shmita will start in 2016. And the next Jubilee will be 2045/2046.

    Kind regards…

  12. Creations Jubilee book has fabulous insites and proof text that are worth looking at. Gods-kingdomministries.org. He says the jubilee counts jubillees of years as one total brings the hezekih factor into play with ten degrees on ahab sundial to answer some calculations into current timing.
    The mathamatics are briiliant.

  13. On Dec.1st, 1913 the Babylonian money system officially became the law of the land with what is commonly known as the ‘Federal Reserve Act’..This act reads as thus:
    Sixty third congress of the United States of America; at the second session, begun and held at the City of Washington on Monday, the first day of December, one thousand nine hundred and thirteen.AN ACT to provide for the establishment of Federal Reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States, and for other purposes.
    The short title is ‘Federal Reserve Act’ and it was approved on Dec22, 1913.
    Now, why am I bringing this up….well, soon there will be two jubilee cycles of time gone by. These two cycles are just the opposite of the life giving cycles of Yahweh…they are two cycles of theft and national usury, which Yahweh hates. To Him it is an abomination that truly desolates the people of the country. Our status and our identity as a people have been utterly redefined by the provisions of this act, making every human being who comes into contact with the instruments of the federal reserve system what is known as ‘chattel’. This a form of identifiable slavery. It robs the national treasury, and redefines the people as being ‘owned’ by the system. In the end the ‘banking system’ will issue a mark by which only those who receive it can do commerce. It is world wide, having deceived the whole world. It is a private industry and enslaves all governments to it. If it could it would enslave the very government of the Lord’s but He has a different system. The federal Reserve Act was signed into law by Woodrow Wilson and on his death bed he recanted having done so. I do feel sorry for him, but I feel even sorrier for us. This is not conspiracy theorizing…it is fact. This is the system that the Lord will destroy when he comes here. Those taking the mark will be seen as soldiers of this system. They will have giving their allegiance to this system. But, I guess my point here is that it has a time limit to it and it has been here for almost two of these jubilee cycles. Link this money system with the persecuting religious power of the Roman church which has murdered millions and you have the makings of a very big machine/beast that breaks into pieces whole countries. I will be thoroughly surprised if America will actually be ‘one’ country and not broken into warring factions, like the Balkans. Only Yahweh can save this country now. If He has captains and commanders who have not bowed the knee to ‘babylon and the baals’ then we have a chance of seeing the return of Messiah as a whole country. It would be an achievement of universal proportions to do that. We do not live in a vacuum, ie there are societies in this universe watching us and hoping we win. They haven’t met Messiah yet. They don’t quite understand what we know about. (This has been meant for encouragement, of myself as well).

  14. Very interesting thoughts, Shiloh2020.

    I just determined that 1911/1912 was a Shmittah year… very close to the timing of the Federal Reserve Act. The Aldrich Plan and the National Monetary Commission climaxed in 1912, both of which ultimately led to our 1913 enslavement to the banking cartel. Very intriguing timing of events.

  15. I just had a question, since I was looking to refresh my mind when the last Shmita was, and it was the year 2007/08 in Israel, though not observed as I would have hoped having studied it in Scripture.

    How then would the Shmita be this year? I’m just curious, not at all bashing or trampling your research. It’s been a while since I poked into this and fell on your site via google. Thanks for your time!

  16. Shalom Hadassah,
    First of all, the sighting of Rosh Chodesh yesterday was not the beginning of a Shmittah year, it was the beginning of the first year in the next Shmittah cycle. 2009/2010 was the last Shmittah year. It just ended. 2016/2017 will be the next Shmittah.

    If you study in detail the occurrences of Shmittah years and Jubilee years in antiquity… and then project them forward into our day, you’ll see that 2007/2008 was not a Shmittah year. I realize there are alot of well-meaning and intelligent teachers who concluded on 2007/2008, but I believe they were simply in error… largely because of their 50 year increment counting (which is actually a debate that has been going on in Rabbinic circles for ages also).

    Look over this table. All the years in red are years that have been confirmed by numerous sources to have been Shmittah and/or Jubilee years… all of which have been documented very well in this free and lengthy e-book: The Sabbath and Jubilee Cycle.

    Thank you for the comment… shalom,
    Hanok

  17. There are two tables of sabbaticals readily available online… one by a man named Zuckermann …and the other by a man named Wacholder

    The latters table is one year later than the other.

    the sabbatticals observed in Israel today are in line with the table set out by Zuckerman.

    There are those today who seem to be advocating Wacholder.

    Personally, I have accepted that Zuckerman has the correct dates.

    You will of course come to your own conclusions.

    I do agree with the 49 year basis of a Jubilee Cycle which is evidenced by the 70 week prophesy of Dan 9, of which the first 7 weeks is a jubilee period.

    Also … using Zuckermans table of dates … the Decree of Ezra 7, dated to the year 457/456 BC starts the period of the 70 weeks prophesy right at the start of a Jubilee Cycle.

    Of all the 4 decrees, this is the only one which fits the Jubilee Cycles.

    the decree in 445bc of nehemiah does not fall on a sabbatical, and neither does the decree of cyrus in 537bc

    the decree of darius in 520bc does fall on a sabbatical… but is outside the dates for a jubilee cycle.

    Hezekiahs 14th year and 15th year represent the 49th and 50th/1st years of a jubilee cycle as indicated by the years of rest for the land as described in Kings and Isaiah and lines up with the 70 week prophesy of daniel 9 starting in 457/456 bc

    this evidence was enough for me to accept Zuckerman as being correct.

  18. Shalom all,

    I agree with Norman that the Jubilee cycles are 49 and not 50 years. There is additional historical evidence to support the idea of 49 year cycles, and that comes from such historical works as Josephus, Maccabees, and even the dead sea scrolls. I have listed these in detail on my website section called “Answers to Objections” under the sub-section:

    “4. Questions on 49 Verses 50 Year Jubilee Cycles.”

    . . . and then later under the sub-section called:

    “Chart Showing Known Sabbatical Years.”

    This can all be found at: Answers to Objections You also might want to check out the detailed explanation of the Jubilee code at: The Jubilee Code

    The website has undergone extensive changes recently, just in case you have already visited it in the past.

    Shalom,

  19. Here is How Eljyah will restore all things (Matth 17:11), Before the coming of Jesus-Christ (Mal 4:5-6; Act 3:19-21) !

    (NB: All in this document is translated from French)

    God says in the Bible: “Do not keep the prophetic words of this book (the Bible) a secret, because the time is near.” (Rev 22:10).

    With the help of the Holy Spirit (Jn 14:26; 16:13-14), God shows us today, the work Elijah has to do, just before the coming of the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord!

    (A) What are the Things to be restored, according to the Bible?

    1) The Kingdom of God on the earth

    Since the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, God’s Kingdom governs no more the mankind.

    *Gen 3: 22-23: “Then the Lord God said,’ now the man has become like one of us and has knowledge of what is good and what is bad. He must not be allowed to take fruit from the tree that gives life, eat it, and live for ever. So the lord God sent him out of the garden and made him cultivate the soil from which he had been formed.”

    NB: So, God’s Kingdom has been removed from the earth after the sin of Adam; but very soon, God will restore it through His Nation which will be born in a day, like a mustard seed, after the coming of the son of man who is Elijah (Ez 2:3-5; Luke 17:22; Mal 4:5).

    *Matth 13 :31,38 : « The Kingdom of the heaven is like a mustard seed that a man takes and sows in his field…The field is the world; the good seed is the people who belong to the kingdom.”,

    *Isa 66:8: “Has anyone ever seen or heard of such a thing? Has a Nation ever been born in a day? Zion will not have to suffer long, before the Nation is born.”

    *Dan 2:44: “At the time of those rulers the God of heaven will establish a kingdom that will never end.”

    *Luke 12:32: “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the Kingdom.”

    *Matth 10:7,23: “Go and preach, ‘The Kingdom of heaven is near…you will not finish your work in all the towns of Israel before the Son of man comes.”

    NB: It’s clear here that, the Kingdom of God will come, when the Son of man, who is Elijah, will come!

    The coming of God’s Kingdom is closely linked at the coming of Elijah, who must restore all things Before the day of the Lord.

    2) One Language

    *Gen 11:1: “At first, the people of the whole world had only one language and used the same words.”, but God mixed up their language at the Tower of Babel , so that they couldn’t understand one another (V7).

    Since there, the whole world has many and many languages; but as it occurred the day of Pentecost, at the foundation of the Church of God (Act 2:1, 4), a miracle of language will happen the day the Nation of God will be born: All those of the little flock who will belong to the Nation of God, will talk only one language, the language of Millennium!:

    *1 Pet 2:9-10: “But you are the chosen race, the King’s priest, the Holy Nation, God’s own people…at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are his people.”

    *Hos 2 17: “I will remove from her mouth the names of Baal.”

    *Zep 3:9: “Then I will give to the people – it will be a change – a pure language, so that they all pray to me, and serve me by mutual consent.” (N.W.T.)

    : “On that day I will purify the lips of all the people, so ,that everyone will be able to worship the Lord together.” (N.L.T).

    3) Israel ’s kingdom or the House of David

    After the death of Solomon, son of David, Israel’s kingdom fell into two kingdoms, as God announced to the prophet Ahijah (1 Kings 11:29_36 ;12:12-19).

    However God has promised David that, at the end of the times, one of his sons (descendants) will restore his kingdom like it was long ago:

    *2 Sam 7:12-13: “When you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will make one of your sons king and will keep his kingdom strong. He will be the one to build a temple for me, and I will strengthen the throne of his kingdom for ever.”

    *2 Sam 7:18-19, 25: “Then the king David went into… Lord’s presence…and prayed: ‘…yet now you are doing even more, Sovereign Lord: you have made” promises about my descendants in the years to come…And now, Lord god, fulfil for all time the promise you made about me and my descendants, and do what you said you would.”

    *Am 9:11: “The Lord says: ‘A day is coming when I will restorer the kingdom of David , which is like a home fallen into ruins…? I will rebuild it and make it as it was long ago.”

    *Ps 89:33-35: “I will not stop loving David or fail to keep my promise to him. I will not break my covenant with him or take back even one promise I made him. Once and for all I have promised by my, holy name: I will never lie to David.”

    NB: So, the descendant of David, who will restore his kingdom at the end of the times, would only be Elijah, the son of man who will restore the kingdom of God ; because, in fact, God’s Kingdom is and will be always in the hands of David’s descendants:

    *2 Chr 13:8: “Do you really think you can stand against the Lord’s kingdom that is given to David’s descendants?”

    *1 Kings 28:5: “…He (the Lord) chose Solomon to rule over Israel , the Lord’s kingdom.”

    So, the coming of God’s kingdom is the restoring of Israel ’s kingdom, which will be ruled, for a short time by Elijah, the son of the man, a descendant of David, until the coming of Christ.

    *Zec 6:12-13: “Tell him that the Lord Almighty says, ‘Here is the man (son of man) called the Branch. He will branch out where he is and build the Temple of Lord . He will build the Lord’s Temple and receive royal honour, and will rule as a king from his throne. He will also serve as a priest from his throne, and there will be perfect harmony between the two.”

    NB: Elijah, the son of man, the descendant of David, will be both king and priest; he will hold two offices that must not get interruption:

    *Jer 33:17-18: “I, the Lord, promise that there will always be a descendant of David to be a king of Israel and that there will always be priests from the tribe of Levi to serve me…?”

    NB: The throne of David is at the present time occupied by Queen Elisabeth II of England (Ephraim), and the Stone of crowning is in Scotland .

    The Bible predicts a fourth and last reversal of this throne at the end of the times:

    *Isa 28:1-3: “Ephraim (the kingdom of Israel ) is doomed! Its glory is fading like the crowns of flowers on the heads of its drunken leaders…The Lord has someone strong and powerful…who will come like a hailstorm… The pride of those drunken leaders (of Ephraim) will be trampled underfoot.”

    *Jer 13:18: “Say to the king and his mother, ‘Come down from your thrones and sit in the dust, for your crowns will soon be snatched from your heads.”

    *Ez 21:26-27: “I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken. Take off your crown and your turban. Nothing will be the same again. Raise the poor to power! Bring down those who are ruling! Ruin, ruin! But this will not happen until the one whom I have chosen…Then I will giver it to him.”.

    NB: So, the throne of England (Ephraim), which is David’s throne, will be given for a moment to a man, Elijah (Zec 6:12-13) before Christ comes and takes it definitively (Luke 1:32-33).

    This throne of David will be snatched from England , and given to the descendant of David, Elijah, who will sit on it at the Safety Place , in the upper mountains of Galilea, especially in Mount Hermon :

    *Ez 34:11-14: “I, the Sovereign Lord, tell you that I myself will look for my sheep and take ca re of them…I will bring them back from all the places where they were scattered… I will…gather them together… I will let them graze in safety in the mountains…and in all the green pastures of the land of Israel .”

    *Ex 15:13-17: “Faithful to your promise, you led the people you had rescued…you bring them in and plant them on your mountain, the place that you, Lord, have chosen for your home…”

    *Joel 2:31-32: “…Before the great and terrible day of the Lord arrives…there will be people on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem who escape.”

    *Isa 4:5-6: “Then over Mount Zion and over all who are gathered there, the Lord will send a cloud in the daytime and smoke and bright flame at night…covering the glorious land…It will be a shelter from daytime heat and a place of safety from storms and rain.”

    *Ps 133: “How wonderful it is, how pleasant, for God’s people to live together in harmony! It is like the dew on Mount Hermon, falling on the hills of Zion . That where the Lord has promised his blessing – life that never ends.”

    *Isa 65:9: “I will arise from Jacob descendants and from Judah an heir of my mountains; and my chosen people will possess my land of mountains.”

    NB: The Bible is very clear today! God’s Nation which will be born in a day will go to the Safety Place on Mount Hermon in Galilea, before the Great Tribulation, and will be led and ruled by Elijah, a physical descendant of David, until Jesus comes and establishes the millennium Reign on earth!

    Salvation (God’s Kingdom) will be on Mount Zion , that is Mount Hermon (De 4:48), because God’s Nation will stay there; and in Jerusalem , because the Two Witnesses (Representatives of God’s Nation) will be there, during the Great Tribulation (Rev 11:3-8).

    4) The Temple of God or Church of God

    The introduction in the Church of God of pagan doctrines, especially the Trinity by false ministers, has been the main cause of dispersal in the Church of God , after the death of M. Armstrong, the messenger of Philadelphia Era (Rev 3:7).

    The Good News about the coming of God’s Kingdom on earth, has been preached by him – as testimony- (Matth 24:14).

    After his death, here is what was to happen shortly afterwards, before the coming of God’s Kingdom:

    *Matth 24:15: “You will see the abomination of desolation…standing in the Holy Place – reader, understand what this means.”

    *Ez 34:5-6: “Because the sheep had no shepherd (M. Armstrong), they were scattered…They were scattered over the face of the earth.”

    *1 Tim 4:1: “The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; they will obey lying spirits and follow the teachings of demons.”

    *2 Tim 4:3-4: “The time will come when people will not listen the sound doctrine, but will follow their own desires and will collect for themselves more and more teachers (ministers) who will tell them what they are itching to hear. They will turn away from listening to the truth and give their attention to legends (pagan myths).”

    *2 Pet 2:1-2: “False prophets appeared in the past among the people (physical Israel ), and in the same way false teachers (ministers) will appear among you ( Church of God ). They will bring in destructive, untrue doctrines…Many will follow their immoral ways; and because of what they do, others will speak evil of the way of truth.”

    *2 Thes 2:2-3: “Not to be easily confused in your thinking or upset by the claim that the day of the Lord has come…for the day will not come until the apostasy takes place.”

    NB: The rejection of what one has first believed (apostasy), was to happen in the Church of God after the death of M. Armstrong, and before the day of the Lord (2 Thes 2:2-3).

    Meanwhile, God says in the Bible that, He will sent Elijah to restore all things before the day of the Lord (Mal 4:5; Matth 17:11.

    All this shows clearly that the Temple of God (the Church), which is today lying in ruins, abandoned, after the death of M. Armstrong (Hag 1:4,9; 2:3 ;Matth 23:38-39 ;Luke 13:35), will be restored on its foundation (2 Tim 2:19 ;Hag 2:23), by Elijah, who is the son of man and the descendant of David (Zec 6:12-13 ;2 Sam 7:12-13).

    It is in that spiritual Temple rebuilt by Elijah (Luke 1:16-17), that Christ will enter in his coming and our meeting with him (Mal 3:1; 2 Thes 2:1)

    Christ cannot come today in an abandoned Temple , whose members are scattered (Hag 1:4, 9; Ez 34:5). He must remain in heaven until Elijah comes and prepares a people very ready to him (Mal 4:6; Luke 1:16-17; Act 3:20-21), that is to say, a glory church – pure and faultiness, without a spot or wrinkle or any other imperfection (Eph 5:27).

    5) Revelation of All that is hidden in the Bible

    *Rev 22:10: “Do not keep the prophetic words of this book (Bible) a secret, because the time is near.”

    *Luke 8:17: “For whatever is hidden away will be brought out into the open and whatever is covered up will be found and brought to light.”

    NB: So, everything that is sealed or secret in the Word of God must be brought to light for the last time, before the day of the Lord.

    *Isa 44:28: “When I say of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd! He will certainly do what I say. He will command that Jerusalem be rebuilt and that the Temple (the Church) be restored.”

    *Isa 45:1-3, 6: “That is what the Lord says to Cyrus, his anointed one, whose right hand he will empower…I will smash down gates…And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness – secret riches…so all the world from east to west will know there is no other God. I am the Lord, and there’s no other.”

    NB: Cyrus means = The Last time, or the Last time of God, or the Latest of God.

    So, Cyrus, who is an anointed of God, and sent in the end of the times to rebuild and restore the Temple of God (the Church), is no one else than Elijah who must come to restore all things before the day of the Lord; and so, all that is hidden or secret in the Bible will be brought to light by Elijah, who is the spiritual Cyrus, because God will open all the doors to him, and they will never be shut again (Isa 45:2 ;Rev 3:7).

    God’s secrets which are hidden in the prophetic Scriptures, will be totally revealed as God has commanded (Rev 22:10), and will be brought to all nations by Elijah, before the day of the Lord (Joel 2:1 ;Rom 16:25-26 ;Mal 4:5-6).

    (B) The Prophetic Figures (Roles) of Elijah

    The Bible says that God will send a man in this end of the times to restore all things, and fulfil all his Will (Isa 44:28); that man is Elijah, the prophet, who will hold several prophetic positions to accomplish his mission. God always works through (a mouth of) a man or son of man (Act 15:7 ;2 Sam 23:2 ;Isa 50:10 ;Mal 2:7 ;2 Pet 1:21):

    1) The Son of man (Luke 17:22)

    *Ez 7:2-3, 6-7: “Son of man, this is what the Sovereign Lord says to Israel : The end is here! Wherever you look – east, west, north, or south – your land is finished…I will unleash my anger against you…The end has come…The time has come, the day of trouble is near…”

    *Ez 2:3, 5: “Son of man he said, ‘I am sending you to the nation of Israel …And whether they listen or not…at least they will know they have had a prophet among them.”

    *Mal 4:5: “Look, I am sending you (people of Israel ) the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” (See Mal 1:1).

    NB: The son of the man, a prophet who is sent by God to the spiritual Israelites at the endtime, before the day of the Lord, and Elijah, the prophet who is also sent by God to those Israelites, are the only and the same person.

    It is why Jesus said that, Elijah who will come to restore all things, should first suffer much as the son of man, and be rejected, and die in this generation of the end (Mark 9:12; Luke 17:25; Job 14:13); then, God will raise him from the dead to the physical life, to fulfil his mission (Ps 30:2-3; 40:1-3; Matth 24:27):

    *Luke 17:24: “For when the Son of man returns (in physical life), you will know it beyond all doubt. It will be as evident as the lightning that flashes across the sky.”

    2) Cyrus (Isa 44:28)

    Cyrus, as it has been said, means the Latest of God or the Last time of God. Because, for the last time, God will restore all things and warn the whole world before his terrible day comes.

    We have seen that all things in the Bible will be brought to light by Cyrus (Isa 45:1, 3), who will also rebuilt God’s Temple (Isa 44:28). So, Cyrus is no one else than Elijah who will rebuild the spiritual Temple , in which Christ will enter at his coming –Mal 3:1; 4:5; Luke 1:17).

    3) Joshuah (Zec 3)

    *Zec 3:8: “Listen to me, O Josuah the high priest…Soon I am going to bring my servant, the Branch.”

    *Zec 6:12: “…Here is a man (son of man) called the Branch. He will branch out where he is and build the temple of the Lord.”

    NB: God will rise up and bring in the forefront, a man or son of man who will be a high priest, and will build God’s Temple . That son of man is called Josuah!

    So, the son of man, Elijah will hold the position of spiritual Josuah, the high priest who will build God’s Temple; and, as his physical namesake, who led the physical Israel across the Jordan River into Canaan (the land of promised), the spiritual Josuah who is Elijah will lead the spiritual people of God into the Safety Place in Galilea!

    4) The Descendant of David (2 Sam 7:12-13)

    We have proved above that the descendant of David, who will rebuild his kingdom (Am 9:11), is Elijah, the son of man who will restore all things and bring the kingdom of God (Matth 17:11; 10:7, 23).

    Since the kingdom of God is led by the sons of David (1 Chr 28:5 ;2 Chr 13:8), the descendant of David who will restore his kingdom, and Elijah the son of man ,who will bring the Kingdom of God, are the same and only one person!

    5) The second Blacksmith and the second Angel or Messenger (Zec 1:20-21; Rev 14:8; 18:1-2)

    The Bible clearly speaks of four (4) Blacksmiths or God’s servants, who will come at the end of the times, in order to throw down Babylon (Zec 1:20-21):

    – The First Blacksmith: is the first Angel or messenger of Revelation 14:6-7; his work corresponds to what Christ foretold to his disciples: “This Good News about the Kingdom will be preached through all the world for a witness to all mankind; and then the end will come.” (Matth 24:14).

    This first messenger of God at this endtime was M. Armstrong, the spiritual Moses (Mal 4:4), and the spiritual Zerubbabel (Zec 4:9-10), who has preached at the Philadelphia Era, as testimony, the Good News of the coming of God’s Kingdom on earth. The mission God gave him came to its end on 16th January 1986, the day he died (Rev 3:7; Isa 48:3, 6-7).

    – The Second Blacksmith: is the second Angel or Messenger of Revelation 14:8; 18:1-2).

    Since the end was to come after the mission of testimony of the first messenger, M. Armstrong (Matth 24:14), it means that the next verse (Matth 24:15), marks the beginning of that end:

    *Matth 24:15: “The time will come when you will see…the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place –reader understand what this means.”

    NB: So, after the Good News of the coming of God’s Kingdom had been preached all over the world, as testimony by M.Armstrong, pagan doctrines, whose main is the Trinity, were introduced by M. Tkach in the Church of God, which is the Holy Place (Eph 5:27); this situation caused the apostasy and the desolation which scattered God’s people (2 Thes 2:3; Ez 34:5-6).

    Before the fall of Babylon and the day of the Lord, God will send his second messenger or servant to prepare to the Lord, a people ready for him, gathered and not scattered:

    *Rev 14:8: “Then a second angel followed the first one, saying: “She has fallen! Great Babylon has fallen!” (See also Rev 18:1-2).

    *Mal 4:5: “Look, I am sending you the prophet Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the lord arrives…”

    *Luke 1:16-17: “And he will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God…he will turn disobedient people back to the way of thinking of the righteous; he will get the Lord’s people ready for him.”

    NB: So, the second Angel or messenger of Revelation 14:8 and 18:1-2, is no one else than Elijah, the son of man, who will warn people of the fall of Babylon , and ask God’s people to come out from her (Ez 7:2; Joel 2:1; Rev 18:2, 4).

    – The Third and Fourth Blacksmiths: are the Third Angel of Revelation 14:9-10. We only see one angel instead of two, because one of them (Rev 11:3-12), will be the Spokesman of the Duo, as Aaron and Moses (Ex 4:14-16; 7:1-2; Am 3:3; Ecc 4:9-12), as Theos (the Father) and Logos (Christ) – John 1:1-3. They will be the Representatives of God’s Nation during the Great Tribulation.

    In conclusion, the second Blacksmith of Zechariah 1:20-21, the second Angel of Rev.14:8 and 18:1-2, are no one else than Elijah, who will come before the Great Tribulation and the Fall of Babylon to warn the whole world and bring God’s Kingdom!

    (C) The Mission of Elijah has Two Stages

    Taking about the descendant of David who will restore his Kingdom, God has said:

    *2 Sam 7:12-15, 19: “I will raise up one of your descendants…He is the one who will build a house (a Temple) for my name…If he sins, I will punish him as a father punishes his son…But my unfailing love will not be taken from him…Sovereign Lord; you have made promises about my descendants in the years to come.”

    *Isa 57:17-18: “I was angry with them (him) because of their (his) sin and greed, and so I punished them (him) and abandoned them (him)…I have seen how they (he) acted, but I will heal them (him). I will lead them (him) and help them (him)…” – In the Bible in French, it’s a person (in the singular), and not several persons (in the plural)!

    *Ps 118:17-18: “I will not die, but I will live to tell what the Lord has done. The Lord has punished me severely, but he has not handed me over the death.”

    NB: According to the prophecy about the house of David at the end of the times, and according to the typology (foreshadowing of events to come) which is frequently woven through the Psalms of David (2 Sam 23:2,5), we are here in the face of a descendant of David that God will punish by a disease (2 Sam 7:14 ;Isa57:17), but God will heal him (Jer 33:6 ;Isa 57:18), because God supports him (2 Sam 7:15).

    But how God will heal him?

    *Job 14:13: “I wish you would hide me in the world of the dead; let me hidden until your anger is over, and then set a time to remember me.”

    *Ps 30:2-3: “I cried to you for help, O Lord my God, and you healed me; you brought me up from the grave, O Lord. I was on my way to the world of the dead, but you restored my life.”

    *Ps 40:1-3: “I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He pulled me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground (rock) and steadied me as I walked along…Many who see this will take warning and will put their trust in the Lord.”

    NB: So, God will heal the descendant of David that he has punished, by a resurrection to the physical life; this means clearly that he was died before, owing to the disease God inflicted on him!

    Job’s prayer (cry) foreshadowed the physical suffering that the descendant of David had to endure before his dead, and his return in physical life. The prayer of Job was a prophecy for the time of the end, for today!

    It’s clear that all those verses above concerning the descendant of David cannot be applied to Job, or to David himself, and nor to Jesus, another descendant of David; that is why:

    – Job healed from his disease, without passing through the death (Job 42:10)

    – David didn’t die from disease (1 Kings 2:10; 1 Chr 29:28)

    – Jesus was never sick, and didn’t die from sickness (Jn 19:17-18.)

    To sum up, the descendant of David who will restore his kingdom at the end of the times, had to suffer much like Job and die; but he will return soon in the physical life, to fulfil the second part of his mission, at the time set by God!

    The Bible shows clearly the two stages of the mission of Elijah at the end of the times, throughout the prophetic persons he will represent:

    – Primo = First stage – First appearance – First fulfilment

    – Pause = Absence in the scene

    – Segundo = Second stage – Second appearance – Last fulfilment

    1) As the Son of man

    NB: Jesus is not yet the Son of man since his resurrection from the death (Rom 1:3-4; 2 Cor 5:16; Jn 3:6; 1 Cor 15:50).

    a) – Primo: He must first suffer must, be rejected and his message scorned (Mark 9:12; Luke 17:25)

    – Pause: He must disappear for a moment (2 Thes 2:7)

    b) – Segundo: He will rise from his hiding-place (Job 14:13; Ps 30:2-3). He will be revealed (Luke 17:30), and his day (Luke 17:24) will be the starting point of a worldwide upheaval, as it was in the times of Noah and Lot (Luke 17:26-29)

    c) – Primo:

    *Undermined by the sickness, he won’t be able to warn the spiritual Israelites, but whenever God gives him a message, he loosens his tongue and lets him speak (Ez 3:26-27)

    *Because of his sickness, he must be retained in the house, so he cannot go out among the people of God (Ez 3:24-25)

    – Pause

    d) – Segundo:

    *At a day set by God, he will get back the power of speech which he had lost, and he will talk again. He wile be a sign to the people (Ez 24:26-27)

    *In this day, he will not be tied again, he will stand up, and God will send him this time, to the spiritual Israelites, and they will know that a prophet is among them (Ez 2:1-5 ;Ps 40:3 ;Isa 29:23-24).

    2) As the Spiritual Josuah

    – Primo: He is a high priest, but he wears filthy clothes of the laodicean ‘own-way’ (Zec 3:3 ;Rev 3:17); he must be striped of this condition by a physical (severe) punishment, inflicted by God (Zec 3:4 ;Isa 57:17 ;Rev 3:18 ;Ez 3:24-27), and then, he must wear new clothes of God’s understanding and Justice (Zec 3:5)

    – Pause

    – Segundo: At a day set by God, he will germinate (appear, rise from dead) with great authority to rebuild God’s Temple (Zec 6:10-13).

    3) As the Second Angel (Blacksmith-Messenger)

    – Primo: He says (preaches): “She has fallen! Great Babylon has fallen”, in an undertone, like a murmur (Rev 14:8), in contrary to the first and third angels who say (preache) their messages in a loud voice (Rev 14:7, 9)

    – Pause

    – Segundo: In Revelation 18:1-2, the angel who comes down from heaven with great authority, preaches in a loud voice, the same message that the angel of Revelation 14:8 has preached in undertone: “She has fallen! Great Babylon has fallen!”

    To sum up, we see clearly that the angel of Revelation 14, and the one of Revelation 18, are the same messenger, because they have the same message, but which is only proclaimed in two different lapses of time, and with a different density or tone: firstly in an undertone – secondly in a loud voice.

    This shows clearly that the angel of Rev 14 has disappeared at a certain moment, before coming back in the forefront with great authority (Rev 18:1-2).

    4) As the Descendant of David

    – Primo: He is a shepherd, but he is punished by God (2 Sam 7:14; Isa 57:17; Ps 118:18; Jer 17:16), and rejected by people (Ps 118:22)

    – Pause: He is hidden by God in the grave (Job 14:13; Isa 49:1-3)

    – Segundo: He is saved and healed by God (Ps ,118:14-17 ;Isa 57:18 ;Jer 33:6), who bring him back to the physical life, at a day set by him (Ps 30:2-3 ;40:1-2 ;118:23-24), so that he restores the kingdom of David (2 Sam 7:12-13 ;Am 9:11).

    5) As Cyrus (the last time)

    – Primo: He is sent by God to announce the birth of God’s Nation (Isa 44:26; 66:7-8). God gives him new revelations which are treasures hidden in the darkness (Isa 45:3; Matth 13:44; Isa 48:6-7). He passes it on the Laodiceans who are in captivity in Babylon today (Ez 11:24-25) – They reject the message and the messenger!

    – Pause

    – Segundo: The earth will open wide, so he returns in physical life; it will be like childbirth (Isa 45:8; 66:7), so that the entire world, from east to west will know there is no other God (Isa 45:6). He will rise from the dead to rebuild Jerusalem and restore the Temple ( Church of God ) – (Isa 44:28; 45:13).

    (D) From what we know now, Can we Identify Elijah today?

    1) M. Armstrong was not Elijah to come

    M. Armstrong, the first messenger or servant of God at this end of the times could not be Elijah, because:

    – He came before Laodicea Era which has brought Apostasy in the Church of God (Rev 3:10 ;2 Thes 2:3 ;1 Tim 4:1 ;2 Tim 4:3-4 ;Mathh 24:15), and caused the dispersal of God’s people, after his dead (Ez 34:5-6 ;2 Pet 2:1-2 ;Act 20:29-30).

    – He didn’t prepare to God a people ready to him, not scattered, as Elijah to come will do it (Luke 1:16-17)

    – He has revived the Church of God in Babylon (Rev 3:1-2, 7-8), but he didn’t bring it out of Babylon , as Elijah to come will do it, before the day of the Lord (Joel 2:1; Rev 18:1-4; Luke 1:16-17)

    – He didn’t restore the kingdom of David , as Elijah to come, a descendant of David will do it (2 Sam 7:12-13; Am 9:11).

    In short, M. Armstrong was not Elijah to come; on the contrary, he was the spiritual Moses who has restored the Law in the Church (Mal 4:4), the spiritual Zerubbabel who has built the spiritual Temple of God (the Church) in this end of the times (Zec 4:9-10), and the Angel or Messenger who has preached, as testimony, the Good News of the establishment of God’s Kingdom on the earth (Matth 24:14 ;Rev 14:6-7), by Elijah (Matth 17:11 ;Act 3:20-21).

    NB: Even in the Jewish Canon, Moses represents the Law, and Elijah the Prophecy. The salvation comes from the Jews (Jn 4:22).

    Moses cannot be Elijah and vice-versa; so, the endtime Moses (Mal 4:4) cannot be at the same time the endtime Elijah (Mal 4:5-6)!

    Moreover, a space of time separates their arrivals on the scene:

    - The first has come before Laodicean Era (Rev 3:7) to build the endtime Church of God (Zec 4:9-10), and to restore the law in the Church (Mal 4:4),

    - The second will come soon in this laodicean era, before the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord (Mal 4:5-6; Matth 17:11), to get the Lord’s people ready for him (Luke 1:16-17), because God’s people were scattered after the death of the spiritual Moses (HWA) –Ez 34:5.

    2) Who is Elijah today?

    Taking about Cyrus, another representation of Elijah, here what God says:

    *Isa 45:3: “…I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness – secret riches. I will do this so you may know I am the lord…who calls you by name.”

    *Isa 49:1: “…The Lord called me before my birth; from within the womb he called me by name.”

    NB: If God calls Cyrus (Elijah) by name, that name must be mentioned in the Bible!

    Taking about the Prince of Tyre, a representation of the Man of sin, who will also come before the day of the Lord (2 Thes2:2-4), God says:

    *Ez 28:1-3: “…Son of man (Elijah), give the Prince of Tyre this message from the Sovereign Lord: In your great pride you claim: ‘I am God! I sit on a divine throne…you boast that you are like a god. You think you are wiser than Daniel, that no secret can be kept from you!”

    NB: A dead cannot talk to a living (Ecc 9:5,10); so, the son of man who will talk to the man of sin or Price of Tyre, and to the spiritual Israelites (Ez 2:3-5), will be a living, after his return in physical life (Ps 30:2-3 ;40:1-2 ;Luke 17:30).His name in the Bible is Daniel (Ez 28:3).

    The prince of tyre, the man of sin, will regard himself wiser and representative than Daniel, the son of man that God will send (Ez 2:3-5; 28:2).

    So, two forces or supermen will be in the forefront before the day of the Lord: the son of man, Elijah the prophet (Ez 2:3-5; Mal 4:5), and the man of sin, prince of Tyre the false prophet (2 Thes 2:3-4):

    - The Man of the sin, the False prophet: will represent Satan, the devil (2 Thes 2:8-11 ;Rev 13:11-17)

    - The Son of man, Elijah the prophet: will represent God (Ez 2:3-5; Mal 4:5; Matth 17:11).

    Daniel, the son of man named by God, who will talk to the man of sin at this endtime, cannot be Daniel the prophet of the Old Testament, who died long time ago, and is still waiting in the grave, the resurrection of the saints (Dan 12:9,13 ;Heb 11:39-40).

    Daniel, the son of man who is Elijah, is also the descendant or son of David; his name, then, is literally: “Daniel-Son of David” or “Daniel Dawson”, as God has called him before his birth (Isa 49:1; 45:3-4).

    Jesus, another descendant of David, was also called: Jesus-Son of David ( Dawson ) – (Matth 15:22; 20:30-31; Mark 10:47-48; Luke 1:32; 18:38-39).

    So, the name of Elijah to come is DANIEL DAWSON (Judge of God-Son of David)!

    CONCLUSION

    Some people (the Jews), in the first century didn’t accept a truth that Hebrew Scriptures revealed clearly: the Identity of the Messiah. Jesus of Nazareth had complied with all criterions, fulfilled all the prophecies on him.

    However, a thickstring of lies and preconceived ideas stopped many of his compatriots understanding the Word of God (Rom 10:2-3; Eph 4:18).

    It’s the same thing today (1 Cor 10:11).The spiritual Jews of the end of the times, refuse to admit that, after the dead of M. Armstrong, Elijah who is the son of man, will come before the day of the Lord, and before the advent of Christ, to restore all things (Mal 4:5 ;Matth 17:11 ;Act 3:20-21).

    It is important to read the Bible without preconceived ideas, because as a veil, they darken the understanding and the intelligence of biblical truths (2 Cor 4:3-4)

    We must take example of the people of Berea, who listened to the message with great eagerness, and searched the scriptures day after day to see if what Paul preached was really true (Act 17:11 ;Jn 17:17 ;1 Thes 5:21).

    The Bible declares clearly that the son of man, Elijah and descendant of David who will come at the end of the times, before the day of the Lord:

    - Had to suffer much physically and be rejected (Ps 118:18, 22 ;Luke 17:25)

    - Had to die, after suffering much (Job 14:13 ;2 Thes 2:7)

    - Will return in physical life by resurrection Ps 30:2-3; 40:1-2; 118:23-24; Isa 45:6, 8; 52:10; Zec 6:12).

    But Jesus himself has predicted that, some people will remain hermetic to God’s Truths and Revelations “Even if someone were to rise from death” (Ez 2:5; Luke 16:30-31). So, when the son of man will rise from death, other people will say that he is a devil embodied (Hos 9:7; Matth 10:25).

    On the other hand, many of God’s people will wake up; when they see this miracle occurred, because they have taken seriously this warning and testimony:

    *Ps 40:3: “…Many who see this will take warning and will put their trust in the Lord.”

    *Isa 29:23-24: “When his (Jacob) sons see among them the work of my hands, they will recognize the Holiness of the Holy one of Israel . They will stand in awe of the Lord of Israel . Those in error will then believe truth, and those who constantly complain will accept instruction.” – “They will know that a prophet has been among them.” (Ez 2:5)

    So, it is urgent that we come out from our Laodicean attitude, and anoint our eyes, in order to recognize God throughout his Work (Rev 3:18).

    God doesn’t look at the flesh, he uses His Spirit to do His Work with the man that he wants and chooses (Rom 1:14; 1 Cor 12:13; Gal 3:27-29), as he has predicted before the creation of the world:

    *Isa 37:26: “Have you never heard that I planned all this long ago? And now I have carried it out…”

    *Heb 12:25: “Be careful, then, and do not refuse to hear him who speaks. Those who refused to hear the one who gave the divine message on earth did not escape.”

  20. I see that finally someone is talking about the “restoration of all things”!! Yeay!

    I did a study not to long ago on this. Here is some of my findings.

    A “strong delusion” has come over the Church and has blinded many to the truth and meaning of “The Restitution of All things”,which must happen first before the coming of the Lord and the great andterrible day of the Lord!

    Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which Godhath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

    A new season is upon the Church, a season that all of creation has groaned for, the times of refreshing is coming, and the restoration of all things is before us!

    Many do not understand what Jesus, Peter and Malachi the prophet spoke of concerningthe “restitution of all things”. We as a body have fallen short in our study and understanding the “restitution of all things” .

    Few Christians search the matters and mysteries of the scriptures…..Prov. 25:2 says,”It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honor of kings is to search out a matter. Unfortunately, the majority of the Church has chosen to follow religion and doctrines of men instead of what is written clearly in the scriptures concerning the “restitution of all things”. A strong delusion has come over the Church and has blinded many to the truth and meaning andunderstanding of “The restitution of All things”, which must happen first beforethe coming of the Lord and the great and terrible day of the Lord!

    Peter proclaims in Acts 3 and all who have ears to hear the Spirit’s voice that there is coming a time of restitution of ALL THINGS and reconciliation in whether they be things in heaven, things inearth, or things under the earth.

    Jesus Christ cannot set foot on this earth until the restoration of all things!

    20And he shall send Jesus Christ,which before was preached unto you: 21Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things Acts 3:19-21

    Also in Malachi 4:1-3 confirms there must be a “restoration of all things” before the greatand dreadful day of the Lord. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers,

    Malachi 4 Elijah the prophet must come first; the Sun of Righteous arises with Healing in his wings Mal 4: 1For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horebfor all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart ofthe children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with acurse.

    Malachi4:1-3, confirms there must be a “restoration of all things” before He sets foot on earth, before the great and dreadful day of the Lord! This verse is linked to Acts 3:19, Mark 9, Mathew 17 too, which we will examine further.

    The Hebrew word for restoration of all things is just that, restoring things to the former state before the fall of Adam! The Restitution of all things:1) restoration a) of a true theocracy b)of the perfect state before the fall From Stongs G600: ) to restore to itsformer state 2) to be in its former state.

    The verses on: Restore all things:

    · Mat 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

    · Mar 9:11, 12 and they asked him, saying, why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And he answered and told them, Eliasverily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written ofthe Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought.

    · Act 3:19 -21 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times ofrefreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, whichGod hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

    The “times of refreshing ” and “the restitution of all things must happen before the coming of the Lord, and the tribulation there MUST be a times of refreshing, this must be prior to the catching away of the bride. Acts 3:19-21

    1. Times of Refreshing shall come

    2. HE shall send Jesus Christ (after the restitution of all things)

    3. Whom the Heavens must receive until the times of restitution of all things (the former state of the Garden)

    The “Restitution of All Things” is restoring the former state before the fall of man, before he comes. Who teaches such things today? Well Jesus did,and the prophets from the beginning did! We must first understand is; God had an ultimate dream and it was that Man and Women would walk as ONE in Him with the”choice to choose good over evil. Adam and Eve fell short, and God’s dream has not been yet been fulfilled. Acts 3:21 Tell us…. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preachedunto you: Whom the heaven must receiveuntil the times of restitution of all things, whichGod hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

    The fulfillment of God’s ultimate dream is the restoring all things back to its former state, before the fall! God’s ultimate dream will be man and women walking as ONE in HIM in a type of garden relationship, choosing holiness and righteousness over evil…..Which is the fulfillment of HIS dream, which was HIS perfect plan from the foundations of the Earth! There must be an absolute fulfillment and restoring the former state of the Garden before the Coming of the Lord. The gospels as well as the prophets verify this “restoration of all things”. Acts 3:21, Math 17:11. Mal 4:5,6 this happens after the “times of refreshing”, Acts 3:20.

  21. I think I would say that “the Church” IS the strong delusion, not a victim of one.

  22. I have read most of the replies posted here… I made a graph according to the Sabbath years… 7 Sabbath years = 49 years, plus 1 for the Jubilee year (50th year), then, I started the graph over… comes out right..
    He never mentions the Jubilee year, just the Sabbath years not being observed… it adds up to 70 Sabbath years in 500 years, with 10 Jubilee years included in that time frame of 500 years… add it up yourself…
    7 years = 1 Sabbath year
    7 Sabbath years = 49 years
    +1 for the Jubilee Year= 50 years (Scripture is specific that it is the 50th year!)

    The captivity was 70 years because of 70 Sabbath years not observed.

    70 Sabbath years + 10 Jubilee years = 500 years!

    In general math 7×7 = 49… in Scripture it’s 7 x 7 + 1 = 50!!

    BTW, the 50th wedding anniversary is known as the “Golden Jubilee”. Remember?

  23. Good morning. I agree that there are 8 Sabbaticals in every Jubilee, however I’m having a hard time fitting 70 Sabbaticals in the 430 year prophecy of Ezekiel 4:4. It appears that to get to the 70 Sabbaticals the last calculation of 38 is being forced. How do you explain 38/49 of a Jubilee year? #1 thru 8 on your chart below make sense, but getting 6 Sabbaticals out of 38 years which is less than 1 Jubilee seems like squeezing a square peg into a round hole. I really want to understand this. Thanks and blessings. Ron

    Cycle / Years / Sabbaticals
    1 49 8
    2 49 8
    3 49 8
    4 49 8
    5 49 8
    6 49 8
    7 49 8
    8 49 8
    9 38 6
    Total / 430 / 70

  24. Hello again,
    Adding to my last comment, I see that in 38 years there are 5 Sabbaths representing 35 years but to get to six you would need 42. Again, I’m curious as to how you arrive at 6?
    Thanks
    Ron

  25. Hello, I’m hoping to receive a reply from you, and I’m hoping the math works. I don’t see how using Jubilee years divides evenly into the 430 years, but I hope I’m wrong.
    Blessings
    Pastor Ron

  26. I do agree with your views that a jubilee is a cycle of 49 years. To know the past jubilee/sabbatical years we need to start from the known to the unknown. We know the year of exodus was ajubilee year and also a sunday year.All the historians do agree 1437 BC was the year of exodus (i.e year israel left Egypt to Canan).Jesus begun his ministry in 27AD a sunday year and was to finish it on 33AD a sabbatical year, but was killed midway.To cut short the story,34ad was a jubilee year and the last jubilee was in the year 1994. 2014 is asabbatical year, 2015 is a sunday year and the next jubilee year will be 2042. Hope you will consider my views and comment on the same.

  27. The 49th year is followed by a Jubilee year that is the 50th.
    Judah ben Samuel in giving his prophesy in 1217 used 50 year periods.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judah_ben_Samuel_of_Regensburg

    His prophesy has been right on and has spanned 500 years.

    While there was Jubilee cycles before Israel entered the land they could not be included in the Count. 1388 bc was the start of first Jubilee cycles of 70 determined for Israel with the end of the 70th coming in 2041-42 ad. It is very refreshing to see people who understand why Daniels prophecy was broke down into 7 and 62. I am not sure whether anyone here sees the 70 7′s fulfilled in 34ad. The temple was left desolate the moment the presence of God left at the resurrection . The destruction in 70ad was prophesied by Jesus when he gave the sign of Jonah which had 2 outcomes and 2 paths. I was also wondering if anyone else suspects the 1260 days may be Sabbath days or 42 months worth of sabbath days and time,times and half time is 7 year Sabbaths.

  29. Ron
    The seventh day Sabbath was given to Israel to remind them of creation. So was the Sabbath Years and the Jubilee. The Jubilee is declared in the seventh month of the 48th year 6 or 7 months short of 49 years . Since it was God who determines the growth of the barley it is very possible that the 49th year was always a leap year which would make 7 months after the Jubilee is declared with these 7 months commemorating the 7 days of creation . The wording of the restrictions of the Jubilee does not prevent them from winter planting only. So it is very possible there could be 8 actually Sabbaths counted it is only 7 actual years of Rest for the land

    Clear math proof from scripture if u never listened to Moses.
