GLOBAL  IMPACT  STUDIES

If you find the truth, will you believe it?

If any man desires to do God's will, he will have the needed illumination to recognize, and can tell for himself whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking from myself and on my own accord.  John 7:17 

 

When Will Yahushua Return?

Part 1 

Jubilee Years 

Charts 1 & 2 

 

"Return, O Lord, how long?" (Psalm 90:13, emphasis added). "We see not our sign: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long?" (Psalm 74:9, emphasis added). At the age of 69 (June 2017), I still have an inquisitive mind, and when I see questions like the preceeding ones, I have to ask myself those same questions. And when we ask ourselves those questions we come up without the answser just as the disciples did with Yahushua. "Then said some of His disciples among themselves, What is this that He saith unto us, A little while, and you shall not see Me: and again, a little while, and you shall see Me: and, Because I go to My Father? They said therefore, What is this that He saith, A little while? we cannot tell what He saith. Now Yahushua knew that they were desirous to ask Him, and said unto them, Do you enquire among yourselves of that I said, A little while, and you shall not see Me: and again, a little while, and you shall see Me again?" (John 16:17-19, emphasis added). And then He went on to tell the disciples what He meant. 

We are no different than those disciples. We ask questions among ourselves and come up empty, when if we would go to Yahushua or His Father and ask Them for the answer, They would gladly give the answer to us. How long before Yahushua returns? "Ask, and it shall be given unto you" (Matthew 7:7; Luke 11:9). "And the Word of Yahuwah was precious in those days; there was no open vision" (1 Samuel 3:1). Today, to my knowledge there is no open vision and Yahuwah's Word is indeed precious to us. It is the means by which the Spirit of Elohim communicates to us (John 16:13). Can we know when Yahushua will return? "Ask, and it shall be given unto you" (Matthew 7:7; Luke 11:9). My heavenly Father loves showing me things from His Word when I take the time to spend with Him. "Be still, and know that I am Elohim" (Psalm 46:10). Sometimes it takes a while for Him to get through to us, but in the end He assures us that we will receive what we ask for. He will not give us a stone if we ask for a loaf of bread or a serpent if we ask for a fish (Matthew 7:9-10). 

Forty-four years ago I became a Christian and was told that Yahushua was coming "soon." Do you think forty-four years ago is "soon?" Does forty-four years seem like it was "soon" to you? I am afraid we say or hear many things that are not carefully thought through after given much study. I can remember hearing a sermon over ten years ago where the minister said he believed that the return of Yahushua could be only months away and here it is more than ten years and still Yahushua has not returned. I fear many are giving voice to devil. When we are told something and it just never happens we can get discouraged and give up. I believe Yahushua will return, but I do not believe that on unfounded speculation but because Yahushua said He will return and I believe what He tells us as recorded in the Bible.

Unfortunately many have done as the little boy who hollered "wolf, wolf" when there was no wolf. After hearing the little boy yelling it for so long and so many times, people began to ignore him and when the wolf finally did come no one paid any attention to the boy's cries. So I believe it is the same thing with what people are saying about the return of Yahushua. We become numb to what is being declared without having evidence to support their message when what is predicted does not occur. After a while people that are giving such a message not based on sound Biblical proof lose credibility with the people. I have found few, if any, that have given serious study to determine when Yahushua is returning. This study is a series of personal studies I have done to determine when Yahushua shall return.

In the pursuit of truth, some subjects seem to be off limits for our consideration and some subjects have never been fully considered because the time for the understanding them was not at hand. Elohim works on a need to know basis and when the time comes for those subjects to be understood, Elohim moves upon His people to study them out. Portions of Daniel were not to be understood until we should come "to the time of the end" (Daniel 12:4). "And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand" (Daniel 12:9-10). 

"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased" (Daniel 12:4). The term "run to and fro" was at the time of the writing of Daniel a Hebrew idiom for "thinking upon time." So Daniel 12:4 could read "Many shall think upon time and knowledge regarding that time will increase." The knowledge of the time to be increased would be the times mentioned here in Daniel 12 and I would include the knowledge of the time mentioned Daniel 8:14.

Many when they read what this article is about will cry the day and the hour of Yahushua's (Jesus') return knoweth no man. "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, not the angels which are heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is" (Mark 13:32-33; Matthew 24:36, 25:13). Luke is a little more specific and says "at an hour when you think not" (Luke 12:39, 40, 46). Luke limits it to just the hour not being known when Yahushua will return and we will even examine if that is true or not and why that is. 

Yahushua told His disciples on the night before He was crucified "I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now. Howbeit when He, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will will show you things to come. He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall show it unto you" (John 16:12-14, emphasis added). So evidently from what we read here in John Yahushua did not show His disciples all things that He would have wanted to because they would not be able to receive them at that point in time. He further told His disciples in Acts 1:7, "It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in His Own power" (emphasis added). It was not necessary for the disciples to understand the "times or the seasons" because they did not pertain to the times in which they lived. Is it necessary for us to understand the "times or the seasons?" According to what is written in Daniel 12 it is. Knowledge regarding the times of the end ("times or the seasons") will be be made known to the "wise." It is no fun walking in the dark and when Elohim makes light (truth) available to His children is it not prudent to at least investigate what is being made available to us at this time and see if it passes the Biblical test for validity? "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isaiah 8:20, emphasis added). 

I only ask you to be as noble as the Bereans were in their dealings with the Apostle Paul. "These [the believers from Berea] were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11). They were willing to listen to what Paul had to say to them and then they would examine the Scriptures to see if what he was saying agreed with the Scriptures (Isaiah 8:20). Some people will shut their minds to everything that differs in the least from their understanding of the Scriptures. That is called bigotry which is defined by Webster's Dictionary as "someone obstinately and intolerantly devoted to his own beliefs, creed or party [denomination]." Truth is not stagnant, but it is always growing in clarity. Luke 5:36-39. 

Having said that, in Leviticus 25, Elohim set up what has come to be known as the Jubilee Calendar.  “And thou shalt number seven Sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year . . . it shall be a jubilee unto you” (Leviticus 25:8-10,emphasis added). 

There has been some confusion over the actual length of the Jubilee Calendar over the years as to whether it should be 49 years or 50 years.  Hopefully by looking at the following Scriptures and the following two charts there can be some clarification on this matter.   

Let us first look at the book of Jeremiah.  “And this whole land shall be a desolation, an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.”  “For thus saith Yahuwah, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform My good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place” (Jeremiah 25:11, 29:10, emphasis added). 

Where did Jeremiah come up with seventy years for Israel to be brought into Babylonian captivity?  In Leviticus 26, Elohim told Israel what He would do to them if they walked in His ways (Leviticus 26:3-13).  Furthermore in Leviticus 26, Elohim told Israel what He would to do them if they would not hearken unto Him “and will not do all these commandments” (Leviticus 26:14-46).  There were conditions on which Elohim based His promises and depending on whether they obeyed or disobeyed Elohim, certain things were to come to pass. 

One of those conditions, with the subsequent promise of Elohim, is found in the following verses:  “And if you will not for all this hearken unto Me, but walk contrary unto Me; then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.  And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast out your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and My soul shall abhor you.  And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours. And I will bring the land into desolation:  and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.  And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you:  and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. Then shall the land enjoy her Sabbaths [her every seventh year was a Sabbath year], as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her Sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your Sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it” (Leviticus 26: 27-35, emphasis added).   

Elohim told them that if they did not give their land rest during the Sabbath years (Every seventh year of a seven year cycle.), of which there were seven Sabbath years in each Jubilee cycle, and the land was to rest on the Jubilee year as well, then He would drive them out of the land, and their land would have its rest. 

How do we know how many Sabbaths and Jubilees they violated?  “To fulfill the word of Yahuwah by the mouth of Jeremiah [Jeremiah 25:11; 29:10], until the land had enjoyed her Sabbaths:  for as long as she (The land of Israel) lay desolate [70 years] she (The land of Israel) kept Sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten (70) years” (2 Chronicles 36:21).  Israel and Judah had evidently violated 70 Sabbatical (Rest) years.   

Over how many years of time does it take to violate 70 Sabbatical years?  In the book of Ezekiel, Elohim gives Ezekiel some peculiar directions to follow.  “Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it:  according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity. For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days:  so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.  And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days:  I have appointed thee each day for a year” (Ezekiel 4:4-6, emphasis added). 

We see in these three verses that Ezekiel was to lie on his left side for 390 days and his right side for 40 days. A total of 430 days.  Did Israel and Judah violate 70 Sabbatical years over a period of 430 years? 

The following two charts will hopefully clarify the confusion that has existed over the Jubilee calendar.  In the first chart and the second chart are laid out 430 years.  The first chart uses 49 years as the Jubilee cycle.  In this cycle the first year of the following Jubilee cycle is the Jubilee year and is noted in pink.  It starts out with year number one being a Jubilee year.  The following Sabbaticals (Sabbath or Jubilee) each have a number in parentheses which indicates its order in the sequence reaching to 70.    The 5th Yearly Sabbath of the 8th Jubilee cycle is shown to be the 70th Sabbatical, thus showing that 70 Sabbaticals fit into the scenario given to Ezekiel when using 49 years as the Jubilee calendar. 

In Chart 2, we use a fifty year cycle where the Jubilee year (50th) is the last year of each Jubilee cycle. The thing to be noted when using this model for the Jubilee cycle is that the 70 Sabbaticals do not fit into the 430 years as given to the Prophet Ezekiel.  Only 68 Sabbaticals fit into the 430 years of the vision given to Ezekiel when using 50 years as the Jubilee calendar.  Therefore, we believe this is good evidence that a 49 year cycle is the correct number of years contained in the Jubilee calendar. 

What does it matter which cycle is correct?  In Part 3 of this study pertaining to the length of time from when Adam was created to our day, you will see that it does matter.  In Part 2 of this study there are a number of interesting facts as seen in those charts relating to the significant years in the line of time prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation.  The Jubilee Calendar shows the close relationship between what Jeremiah was shown for the Jews to be in Babylonian captivity for 70 years; what Ezekiel was shown pertaining to the 430 years; and what Elohim told the children of Israel through Moses would happen if they violated the Sabbaticals.  Nothing is just happenstance with Elohim.  There are principles to be discovered that are of Divine origin which Elohim would have us understand in these last days of earth’s history and show us where we stand in reference to the close of time before Yahushua returns.
