Year of Jubilee is our release from bondage

When is the Next Year of Jubilee? The 70th!

The 70th Year of Jubilee in 2024

When is the next Biblical Year of Jubilee? This article presents compelling archaeological and prophetic evidence suggesting the ram’s horn announcing the 70th Jubilee year will sound on the Day of Atonement in October 2023.

In this article you’ll learn:

  • Why the next Jubilee Year starts in March 2024
  • Evidence that 2024 is the 70th Jubilee anniversary since Israel entered the promised land
  • How the Year of Jubilee under the Mosaic covenant foreshadows its glorious spiritual fulfillment in the New Covenant
  • What are God’s 49 and 50-year cycles? How they’re both culminating right now in the 7-year period from 2017 to 2024

Yom Kippur 2023

This day will announce the 70th Year of Jubilee since Joshua led Israel to enter the promised land in 1406 BC. This 70th Year of Jubilee will celebrate our release from the toils of this world and the restoration of our ancient spiritual inheritance in God’s kingdom.

Dispelling Confusion About When a Jubilee Year Starts

Each coming Year of Jubilee should be announced by shofar blasts on Yom Kippur in the 49th year of the Jubilee cycle. Then, the Year of Jubilee starts about 6 months later, on the 1st day of the 1st month of the 50th year. (The 50th year overlaps with the 1st year of the next 49-year cycle. See diagram below.)

In the quote below, Hebrew scholar Dr. Nehemiah Gordon explains this more simply: (emphasis mine)

The Torah says the following:

“And you shall pass a shofar of blasting in the Seventh Month on the tenth of the month; on the Day of Atonement, you shall pass a shofar throughout all your land.” (Leviticus 25:9)

This verse is saying that a shofar should be used to announce the arrival of the Jubilee year, the 50th year in the Sabbatical system. It does not say that the Jubilee begins on the Day of Atonement, only that the impending arrival of the Jubilee year is announced on the Day of Atonement. The shofar is to be passed throughout the land on Yom Kippur of the 49th year, six months before the beginning of the coming Jubilee year. This interpretation is supported by the immediate context in Leviticus 25. Verse 8 says to count forty nine years, verse 9 says to pass the shofar throughout the land, and verse 10 says to proclaim the 50th year as the Jubilee. This shows that the shofar announcing the coming Jubilee in verse 9 is passed through the land before the Jubilee is actually proclaimed in verse 10.

Nehemiah’s Wall 9-18-22

This is why I stated the shofar announcing a 2024 Year of Jubilee would be sounded on Yom Kippur in 2023.

What is the Year of Jubilee?

According to Leviticus 25:8, the Biblical Year of Jubilee happens after every 49-year cycle. It’s announced on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement–the holiest day on God’s calendar when the High Priest enters God’s presence to ‘cover’ the sins of the whole nation. The Year of Jubilee is a whole year of rest for men, animals, and the land.

The Ancient Hebrew Year of Jubilee

Jubilee first appears in the book of Leviticus. God said a Jubilee year was to be celebrated after every 49 years. During this 50th Jubilee year, all debts were erased and all indentured Israelites were freed. Everyone and everything in Israel was to be restored to their original clans and families.

God told Moses to start the 49-year Jubilee cycle “when you enter the land that I am giving to you.” Also, “the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the LORD..” (Leviticus 25:2)

There’s no record of Israel ever celebrating the Year of Jubilee by complying with all its requirements to forgive debts, free slaves, etc.

Jubilee in the New Covenant

Enter Our Promised Land

Just as Israel was to celebrate Jubilee after entering their promised land under Joshua, we have a spiritual promised land to enter. What better time to enter our promised land than on the 70th Jubilee anniversary?

Jubilee Year freedom

In the New Covenant, the Year of Jubilee represents entering our promised land, when God glorifies His overcomers.

This restoration includes: complete deliverance from our sinful nature, glorification, immortality, and restoring our heavenly inheritance in God’s kingdom.

Return to Your Property and Your Clan

…consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty in the land for all its inhabitants. It shall be your Jubilee, when each of you is to return to his property and to his clan.

Leviticus 25:10
Property and Clan
Return to His Property

What property are we to return to? Before you can understand the property we’re returning to, you need to know where we came from in our past.

Warning–the following section will probably be new and strange to you, so I ask you to consider this information without preconceived bias, according to the Bible–not according to denominational theology.

Our spirits existed with God in the eon of time before Adam, but we all fell into sin, resulting in God destroying the earth, making it without form and void. Our spirits continued to exist, but sin alienated us from our holy God. The situation was hopeless–something in us died. Then, since ‘before the foundation of the earth,’ God devised a plan to reconcile us through the sacrifice of His Son, our Savior and Messiah. (Revelation 13:8, 17:8, Ephesians 1:4, Titus 1:2, Matthew 25:34)

Now, during our present eon, God reconciles Himself (and restores spiritual life) to every spirit who responds to the gospel truth. This includes everyone who receives the Father’s forgiveness through faith in our Savior and Messiah, Jesus. We are ‘begotten-again’ in a new creation. We’re sons of the ‘Second Adam.’ (see John 3:3, 1 Peter 1:3, 1:23 1 John 5:18, 2 Cor 5:17, Gal 6:15, 1 Cor 15:47)

Overcomers' Treasure Map

Therefore, Jubilee will be fulfilled when we recover our previous state of glory and joy in YHWH’s presence. Just as the Israelites returned to their ancestral allotment of land, God will restore us to our ancient spiritual position in His kingdom, completely reconciled and reinstated through His infinite grace and love.

I realize these concepts are not commonly taught, so if you’re curious to learn more about our spiritual pre-existence and God’s plan of reconciliation, refer to my free book, the Overcomers’ Treasure Map.

Return to His Clan – Spiritual Israel

What clan will we return to? When believers are grafted into Israel (Romans 11:17-21) we are grafted into one of spiritual Israel’s tribes. Within each tribe of spiritual Israel are families, or ‘mishpachah,’ which is translated ‘clans’ in Leviticus 25:10 above.

Natural Israel versus Spiritual Israel

Be careful–don’t confuse the present state of Israel, or Jewish people, with ‘spiritual Israel.’ The apostle Paul wrote:

Now Hagar stands for Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to present-day Jerusalem, because she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.

Galatians 4:26

Paul was a Jewish rabbi, and he loved his Jewish countrymen. YHWH also loves the physical descendants of Abraham, and many natural Jews will be reconciled to the Father through faith. But, YHWH has no favorite children who can disregard His rules. Yeshua is the only door to reconciliation–access to the Father is only through faith in Yeshua as our Passover and atonement sacrifice. (John 10:1-18, 1 Cor 5:7)

Spiritual Israel

So, in contrast to natural Israel, ‘spiritual’ Israel is comprised of every person (from any nation) who responds to the gospel truth–everyone who has ever been reconciled to the Father through faith in our Savior and Messiah, Jesus.

What about believers who lived before Jesus came? Spiritual Israel includes ancient saints, such as Abel, Seth, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Ruth, and all the others who looked forward to the Savior in their future. Spiritual Israel is based only on faith in YHWH’s promises, not on carnal lineage. Therefore, Spiritual Israel includes all disciples of YHWH, since Abel, who wholeheartedly trust Him and walk in His ways.

Our Clan?

Currently, most of us don’t know what tribe and clan we belong to. I expect God will reveal our clan ‘allotment’ during Jubilee’s fulfillment. From then on, we’ll possess an eternal home within one of the 12 tribes of spiritual Israel.

Your Eternal Home

Jerusalem today is divided into four quarters–Jewish, Muslim, Armenian, and Christian. And, there are ancient gates coming into each quarter. But, the New Jerusalem will come down from heaven. It has 12 gates–one for each tribe of spiritual Israel. Each gate is made of a single pearl (Revelation 21:12). If you’re a disciple, one of these gates will access your clan’s portion of the city–your eternal home in God’s capital on earth.

During the Year of Jubilee, the Land Itself Will Observe a Sabbath

…when you enter the land that I am giving to you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the LORD.

Leviticus 25:2

When YHWH fulfills Jubilee, the earth itself will enter into Sabbath rest.

All of creation eagerly awaits the manifestation of the (144,000) sons of God. When Jubilee Year comes, creation will be delivered from the bondage of decay into glorious freedom:

The creation waits in eager expectation for the revelation of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but because of the One who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

Romans 8:19-21

Not only will the overcomers return to their ancient property and clan, but YHWH will return creation to its original state in the Jubilee Year. During the Millennial Reign of Messiah the earth will be like the Garden of Eden, prosperous and peaceful.

God’s ‘Appointed Times’ Reveal God’s Plan and Sequence of Events

Sounding the shofar on the Year of Jubilee

In Leviticus chapter 23 God established 7 ‘appointed times’ for His people. These appointed times symbolically portray God’s plan of redemption and deliverance. They also reveal how God will re-establish His kingdom on the earth.

God’s Appointed Times

  1. Passover
  2. Unleavened Bread
  3. Firstfruits
  4. Pentecost
  5. Trumpets
  6. Atonement
  7. Tabernacles

Jesus fulfilled the first 4 (Passover, Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits, and Pentecost) on the exact days and times while the Jews were celebrating them.

Therefore, it’s reasonable to expect God will fulfill the remaining 3 (Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles) exactly on their annual anniversaries in our future.

The Biblical 49-Year Jubilee Cycle

Starting on the year Israel entered the ‘promised land,’ the Jubilee-year cycle occurs every 49 years.

Here are the details from Leviticus 25:

Shmitah Years – Sabbath Every 7th Year

When you enter the land that I am giving you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the LORD…For six years you may sow your field and prune your vineyard and gather its crops. But in the seventh year there shall be a Sabbath of complete rest for the land—a Sabbath to the LORD…The land must have a year of complete rest.

Leviticus 25:2,3,5

Year of Jubilee – Every 49 Years (7 Shmitah periods)

And you shall count off seven sabbaths of years—seven times seven years—so that the seven sabbaths of years amount to forty-nine years. Then you are to sound the trumpet far and wide on the tenth day of the seventh month, on the Day of Atonement. You shall sound it throughout your land. So you are to consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty in the land for all its inhabitants. It shall be your Jubilee, when each of you is to return to his property and to his clan.

Leviticus 25:8-10

The 50th Year in the 49-Year Jubilee Cycle

The Jubilee-Year cycle repeats every 49 years (7 shmitahs), but the actual Year of Jubilee is the 50th year. That is, the 50th year is the same as (it overlaps) the first year in the next 49-year cycle. Here’s a diagram to illustrate this overlap:

When is the next Year of Jubilee? Image shows 49 year Jubilee cycle. The 50th year is a Year of Jubilee.
http://endtimepilgrim.org/70wks12.htm

So, in this diagram, both year #1 and year #50 are Jubilee years.

Here’s another example: Every week has 7 days. According to the Bible, Sunday is the first day and Saturday is the seventh day. The next Sunday would be the eighth day, but it’s also the first day of the next week.

If this 49 versus 50 concept is still confusing, watch this video for a good explanation.

When is the next Year of Jubilee?

If you ask Google ‘When is the next year of Jubilee’ you’ll see there’s a lot of ignorance, disagreement, and confusion about this question. It’s a mystery.

According to Leviticus chapter 25, the Biblical Jubilee year cycle started when Israel entered the Promised Land.

Then the LORD said to Moses on Mount Sinai, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: When you enter the land that I am giving you, the land itself must observe a Sabbath to the LORD.”

Leviticus 25:1

I discovered a BibleArchaeology.org article that convincingly proves that Joshua led Israel to enter the Promised Land in 1406BC. A search on their website will provide many references to 1406BC. Here is one of them:

The commencement of the conquest can be dated exactly. With the exodus datable to 1446 BC, the conquest automatically is dated to 1406 BC, because for “40 years the sons of Israel walked in the wilderness” before entering Canaan (Josh 5:6). Since the crossing of the Jordan River transpired on the 10th day of the first month, a date of 28 April 1406 BC is fixed as the day in which the Israelites crossed into Canaan (Josh 4:19).

BibleArchaeology link

Year of Jubilee Starting in 2024?

Based on this 1406BC start date and a 49-year Jubilee cycle, the next Jubilee Year will start on Day 1 of the Biblical calendar, in the spring of 2024, and Jubilee will be formally announced by trumpet blasts on Yom Kippur, in the autumn of 2023. It will be the 70th Jubilee.

Here are my calculations:

2024AD + 1406BC = 3430 years.

3430/49=70

The pattern and dates fit exactly, just as they would if they match God’s plan.

In his 1260d.com website, Dean Coombs provides detailed corroboration that the 70th Year of Jubilee will start in 2024.

2017 and the 50-Year Cycle

In the 20th century important events happened for the Jews and the nation of Israel. Events occurred in 1917 and 1967, 50-years apart, making people wonder if something big would also happen for Israel in 2017… 50 years after 1967 and 100 years after 1917.

I enjoyed Israel’s 70th birthday in May 2018 in Jerusalem with Dr. Michael Heiser and Derek & Sharon Gilbert of Skywatch TV. As you can see in my iPhone video below, Israelis filled the streets, celebrating with overflowing joy on the day the American Embassy moved there from Tel Aviv. Being there was an awesome experience!

22 Seconds of Joyous Celebration in 2018 Jerusalem

Recognizing Israel’s Capital and Moving the US Embassy

On December 6, 2017 President Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and announced plans to move the US Embassy. But, other than the Revelation 12 Sign in the heavens, I can’t find any other ‘big’ events that happened regarding Israel in 2017… at least not on the same level as the 1917 Balfour Declaration or the 1967 Six-Day War.

The 50-Year Cycle

People naturally associate this 50-year 2017/1967/2017 cycle with Leviticus 25:11, which says, “You shall have the fiftieth year as a Jubilee.” They assume that since every fiftieth year is a Jubilee, therefore 1917 and 1967 must have been Jubilee years because God did good things for Israel on these events which were fifty years apart.

Not a Jubilee Cycle

As I’ll explain below, I do recognize this important 50-year cycle. But it’s not the Jubilee-Year cycle.

For a compelling presentation why 49 is correct for Jubilee Year calculations instead of 50, see Jubilee Year Cycle (49 or 50?)

The 50-Year Cycle – Since Creation

The 50-year cycle started at creation, approximately 3983 BC, not in 1406 BC when the Jubilee cycle started.

So, what does the 50-year cycle symbolize? The apostle Peter wrote,

Beloved, do not let this one thing escape your notice: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

2 Peter 3:8

Therefore six days represent 6000 years. Six days reminds us of the 6 days of creation before God rested on the 7th day.

Most Bible teachers believe this means mankind will have 6000 years before the ‘7th-day’ millennial reign of Christ begins. 6000 is evenly divisible by 50, resulting in 120. 6000/50 = 120

The number 120 will immediately remind Bible readers of what God said in Genesis 6:3… After 200 angels mated with human women, producing ‘Nephilim’ giants (for more about this see the Book of Enoch chapter 6), God said:

My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days shall be 120 years.

Genesis 6:3

The Perfect Resolution of the 49-Year and 50-Year Cycles

Let’s connect the dots…

50-Year Cycle

The 50-year cycle begins with the Biblical creation in Genesis, ending (after 6000 years) on its 120th anniversary in 2017.

After 6000 years, the 120th anniversary of the 50-year 1917/1967/2017 cycle coincides with the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week in 2017.

2017 starts the final 7-year shmitah cycle.

49-Year Jubilee Cycle

In contrast, the Bible reckons the 49-year Jubilee cycle from when Israel entered the promised land in 1406 BC, ending on its 70th anniversary in 2024.

The 70th anniversary of the 49-year Jubilee cycle coincides with the end of Daniel’s 70th week in 2024.

Coincidence?

The 120th and 70th anniversaries of the two cycles are symbolically significant in themselves. But for them to frame the beginning and end of the 2017-2024 period is too auspicious to ignore or discount. I cannot believe this is coincidental.

When Does Daniel’s 70th Week Start?

What event initiates Daniel’s 70th week?

Daniel 9:27 famously states, “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week“. But, who is the “he” who makes this firm covenant? And what is this ‘covenant with the many’ for one week?

  • The common view is “he” refers to the Antichrist, who will make a ‘covenant with many’ for 7 years.
  • A common assumption is the ‘covenant with many’ is a 7-year peace treaty between the Antichrist and Israel.
  • But, others believe “he” refers to Jesus, who confirmed the New Covenant in His own blood, poured out for many. (Matthew 26:28, also Mark 14:24)
  • Finally, many believe Antiochus IV Epiphanes already fulfilled many details of Daniel’s prophecies in 167-164 BC.

With so many unknowns I’m not confident we can know who “he” is, or what the ‘covenant with many’ is. As a result, we may not recognize the event that starts Daniel’s 70th week.

Conclusion – The 70th Year of Jubilee

A Bright Future

We are living at the end of the age, and the birth pangs are increasing for everyone. The good news is that God will defeat all His enemies and God’s people have nothing to worry about.

When these things begin to happen, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

Luke 21:28

There is nothing man can do to us if we are in Christ.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:

For Your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:35-39

Finally, my advice is to be watchful. Abide in God’s Spirit continuously, listening and obeying His voice. Strive to make yourself ready for the Lord’s imminent appearing.

  1. There is a very interesting book by Jonathan Cahn on this topic (“The Oracle – The Jubilean Mysteries Unveiled”). He writes in a quasi-fictional style, but his underlying facts seem solid. He points to the 50-year cycle starting in 1867 when Mark Twain visited the holy land (and it was surveyed), followed in 1917 when the British took the land from the Turks, followed in 1967 when the Jews took Jerusalem, followed in 2017 when President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. He also discusses the appointed readings from the Torah on the specific dates the events of each year occurred. While there is room for debate on the overall topic, his work seems a solid contribution.

  2. I find all of these theories compelling, and very honestly we’ve been looking at some ourselves, certainly it seems that Yeshua will return on the FOT and it seems a very near FOT at that, but having said that I’m confused about how anyone can be so certain about exact times or dates considering Messiah Himself said that nobody knows, not the angels in Heaven nor He Himself, but only the Father knows the time of His return. Perhaps we’re better off spending time seeking to do as Messiah taught us and less time trying to pin down a date known only to The Father.

    1. Michelle,
      I think I agree with everything you said. In fact, I just published a Yom Teruah (FOT) article you’ll want to read. https://standinfaith.org/yom-teruah/
      Regarding the ‘nobody knows the day or hour’ question… In the parable of the fig tree (Mt 24:32) Yeshua said His disciples should be aware of the season of His coming. And, He strongly rebuked the Jews because they did not recognize the season of their visitation (Lk 19:44). So, there is definite scriptural support that we should know what season we’re in spiritually.
      Obviously, knowing the season isn’t as specific as knowing the day or hour. But, as I wrote in my FOT article, there are reasons why we can be fairly sure (not 100%) that Yeshua will ‘rapture’ His disciples on a future FOT. But that doesn’t tell us the year, or even the day. Here’s why: I subscribe to the Zadokite solar calendar, so I celebrated the FOT on 9/21. Most Jewish and Messianic believers are on the lunar calendar, so they celebrate FOT from 9/25-27. Others follow an Enochian calendar.
      I think both solar and lunar calendar proponents have strong arguments, so I’m not settled about which calendar is correct. I wrote a detailed article about it here: https://standinfaith.org/gods-calendar/ The solar calendar makes more sense to me, but if the lunar calendar is Babylonian why didn’t Yeshua mention it? I must conclude that either the lunar calendar is correct, after all, or it didn’t matter to Him…
      While I love to dig for gold nuggets of eschatological revelation, I one-hundred percent agree with your bottom line. Our first priority is to do as Messiah taught us. If we fail there, all the head-knowledge in the world is useless.

  4. Some scholars state that 2022 is the 70th year of Jubilee as well as a Shimita (spelling?). Why is there a discrepancy?

    1. Rick,
      Bible scholars are like politicians, in that you can find one to support any idea or philosophy. But there’s only one truth.

      Until yesterday I never heard anyone say that 2022 is the 70th year of Jubilee as well as a Shmita year. Then, yesterday, in Monte Judah’s Messianic World Update (https://www.messianicworldupdate.com) for May 6, 2022 (starting at the 10:45 mark) he said he expects many evangelical teachers will be teaching that 2022 is a Jubilee year, and they’ll get many professing Christians to fervently hope in a pre-tribulation rapture before October 10th, which he says is the 2022 Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) when the 2022 Jubilee would be announced.

      In his May 6th update, Monte Judah warned that “when this doesn’t happen” there will be a “great falling away” (2 Thessalonians 2:3) among professing Christians who fervently hoped for a pre-trib rapture before 10/10/2022.

      When the disciples asked Jesus about the end times, His first statement was, “See to it that no one deceives you.” (Mt 24:4, Mk 13:5) My article above provides much evidence for a possible 2024 Jubilee year. If you know of any evidence for a 2022 Jubilee year, please feel free to provide it in a reply comment. Otherwise, unless there’s valid evidence supporting a 2022 Jubilee year, I don’t think it’s credible.

      Finally, if you’re interested in what I believe about the rapture, read https://standinfaith.org/the-first-rapture-of-the-church

      1. The civil year doesn’t start on Nissan 1. Jewish new year is on Tishrei 1 (Feast of Trumpets, Rosh Hashanah) and has been since creation.

        Nissan 1 is the first month of our spiritual calendar given on Sanai; but this isn’t how the year is calculated.

        Year 5782÷49=118

        Year 5783 Is the JUBILEE (50th)

        September 25 2022 at dusk is the start of the Jubilee year, Feast of Trumpets.

        Great article by the way! Just needs a little work.

        1. Sinai***

          Every seven days since the creation of the world has been Shabbat. Every seven years since the creation of the world has been the Shemittah.

          If the Hebrew year is divisible by seven, then it is a shemittah year. This year, for example, is 5782 which is the 826th shemittah year since the creation of the world.

          Similarly, the Jubilee is the first year of the next shemittah cycle. This has been true since creation. This year is 5782, divided by 49 equals precisely 118. So next year is the 118th Jubilee since the creation of the world.

        2. Jake,

          1. I’m familiar with the Jewish traditions about Rosh Hashanah, but you won’t find it explicitly mentioned anywhere in the Bible. Neither does the Bible ever say that a new year starts on Tishri 1. It may have some validity, but we cannot be dogmatic about it without a scriptural foundation. With that said, I personally believe there is something true about Rosh Hashanah regarding the fulfillment of Jubilee, which will be proclaimed 10 days later–on a future Yom Kippur. For an excellent summary of the facts around Rosh Hashanah (and 3 other traditional Jewish ‘new year’ days) read: https://www.hebrew4christians.com/Holidays/Fall_Holidays/Rosh_Hashannah/Biblical/biblical.html

          2. The Jewish year 5782 is not dependable as an accurate date. Again, it’s based on rabbinical tradition, and it’s widely acknowledged that it has 164 ‘missing years’. See this article for more info about this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_years_(Jewish_calendar)

          Shalom brother.

        3. Exodus 12:2. “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.” (Month of Nisan)

          Leviticus 23:23-25: Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.

          So I believe the year actually begins on Nisan 1.

          1. It does indeed begin that day. They are all screwed up on their days. God said Nisan 1 was the first day to us.

        4. Makes sense. If Jubilee will be formally announced by trumpet blasts on Yom Kippur, it makes sense the Yom Kippur war of 1973 was a Jubilee year so add 49 years and we have 2022 which is a Shemitah year.

      1. Rosemary,
        Regarding your comment I have two questions for you.
        1. In this article I provide evidence for a 1406BC start date for the Jubilee cycle, which (according to Lev 25:2) begins when Israel enters the promised land. Your Jubilee timeline starts in 1483BC. What evidence is there that Israel entered the land in 1483BC?
        2. This article goes into detail explaining why a 49-year Jubilee cycle is correct, but your timeline uses a 50-year cycle. Assuming you read my perspective and chosen to disbelieve it, why is a 50-year Jubilee cycle correct instead of a 49-year cycle?
        Shalom sister,
        Tom

  5. Mat. 24:36 Now concerning the day and hour that no one knows, not the angels, nor the Son, but only the Father.
    From my studies the seven year period begins after that day and hour. The perfect time for the lawless one to come on the scene, when those who are true believers are gone, the dead in Christ and those watching and waiting. The very fact that this 7 yr. period seems to be so close and we can see the ” writing on the wall let’s us know to look up, redemption is near, then these events happen on steroids.
    We can call it the rapture factor, whatever dates it happens to coincide with, but it’s soon, very soon. Perhaps the end of the end so to speak.
    God bless

  7. In my studies of Daniel I found that the Hebrew of 12:11&12 does not follow the English translations. The word translated “taken away” is a Hithpael perfect which is a past tense, not future. The Septuagint is better in that it is in the aorist tense. Therefore should read “was taken away.” Rough translating it: from the time that the daily sacrifice was taken away until the abomination that makes all things desolate established is 1290 periods of time (staying consistent to chapter 9, “years.”) Given it was past, the daily sacrifice was removed by Nebuchadnezzar in 601BC. This would be your starting point. The approximate year that the abomination that makes everything desolate is established on the Temple mount would be AD 689/690. Was there an abomination established then? The Dome of the Rock (Islam). Does Islam make everything desolate? Verse 12; Blessed is he that tarries and arrives at the 1335th year. Adding that to the AD 689/690 you also arrive at 2024 or the Jubilee. So the answer to Daniel’s question in 6 & 8 of when shall the end come was answered by God, but was also hidden until the end by as God says in verse 9. So the time, times, and a half is a general answer to Daniel’s question also. From the day Daniel asked the questions in 6 & 8 it has been generally 2500 years. So, we theologians have been teaching the wrong end time scenario. I began this study as a result of 911. I read a book called “The Death of the West.” Then I realized end time prophecy was mixed up. Now we all know, “The Rest of the Story!”

    1. Les, I just read your online 2015 sermon entitled “Daniel’s Clock” and I agree with you.
      You’ll be interested in my response to Barbara’s comment that I posted (in this thread) on 12/31/21, especially the link to Ellis Skolfield’s essays about the Dome of the Rock.

      I’ve recently come across some teachings that make me doubt the mainstream, traditional teachings about how Daniel’s 70th week will be fulfilled. I believe we’re in the final few years of this age, but I haven’t figured out how some of the time periods in Revelation will be fulfilled, especially Rev 11:3, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5, and 20:3. Are they literal or symbolic? For example, some believe a day represents a year. Others (like Dr. Michael Heiser) don’t believe in a literal 1000-year millennium following this age, saying 1000 years simply represents ‘a really long time.’ (I respect Dr. Heiser, but disagree with him about this.)

      I’ve also seen many explanations trying to say the Two Witnesses are symbolic; e.g., they represent Jews and Christians, the Old Testament and the New Testament, etc., but I haven’t seen one that felt right to me yet. I still believe they’re two human prophets whose televised dead bodies will literally lie in the Jerusalem streets for 3.5 days until the 7th trumpet is sounded.

      So, IF the numbers are literal, and IF we’re in the final 1260 days, THEN we should NOW be seeing the Two Witnesses, the Woman in the wilderness, the beast speaking blasphemies, etc. I think everyone can agree that we’re close to seeing the implementation of the ‘mark of the beast’ that will exclude the noncompliant from buying and selling.

      I’d be interested to hear if you have any opinions about how the time periods (listed above) in the Book of Revelation might be being fulfilled today. If you’d rather not correspond in this comments section, feel free to email me at Tom@Standinfaith.org

      Shalom brother.

  8. I definitely think 2032 is way off. We know that He frustrated then plans of the wicked and that 2030 deadline for the agenda is near.

    I would conclude that the third of the population destroyed would be prior to 2030.

    I believe the Abrahamic Family House is a precedent to the third temple- which could be done in a year.

    I believe it’s highly possible that the temple could be completed or started by the fall 2024 Jubilee.

    At this point- I believe the tribulation may have already begun. Bear with me as I’m still trying to connect the dots here.

  9. The one that is to confirm that covenant with many will break it at the halfway point, or three and a years after. That would mean , if the 70th week began in 2017, the “abomination of desolation” of the temple would have occurred sometime in 2020. There is no temple yet for that to have happened.

    1. Barbara, if popular evangelical beliefs about Daniel’s 70th Week are correct, then what you’re saying is true. There’s no physical temple and we didn’t ‘see’ the abomination of desolation that Jesus predicted in Mt 24:15, and that’s true.

      However, just as the 1st century religious leaders were totally clueless about what God was doing during Jesus’ earthly ministry–to the point where they hated and murdered their own Messiah–I suspect the popular religious teachers in modern times will be just as clueless. I believe this is why Jesus warned us not to be deceived, prophesying “the great apostasy” would occur before the man of lawlessness is revealed. ( 2 Thess 2:3)

      I’ve studied Daniel’s 70th week for many years, only to conclude that it’s a mystery and nobody can be 100% sure they understand it. In addition to traditional teachings about Daniel’s 70th Week, here are some alternative ideas worth considering:

      – We may be seeing the great apostasy in today’s carnal church, and the man of lawlessness may already be on the world stage, preparing to proclaim himself god.
      – The ‘temple of God’ for the last 1900+ years is the Body of Christ, so there’s no need for a Jewish temple.
      – What if the antecedent of “he” in Daniel 9:27 is the Messiah (Jesus) and not the Antichrist? Perhaps Daniel was prophesying the Messiah would institute the New Covenant in Daniel 9:27, where Daniel wrote “he will confirm a covenant with many for one week.”
      – If so, what does it mean that Jesus would confirm the covenant “for one week?” For one possible explanation, read Skolfield’s “Daniel’s 70th Week” essay, referenced below. If he is correct, the 70th week is already fulfilled.
      – If Jesus is the one who confirms the covenant for one week, where Daniel wrote “in the midst of the week he will put an end to sacrifice and offering” Daniel would’ve been referring to Jesus putting an end to the Mosaic animal sacrificial system by the sacrifice of Himself on the cross, after a 3 and 1/2 year earthly ministry. (Hebrews 7:27)
      – Ellis Skolfield makes a convincing argument that the Islamic Dome of the Rock fulfilled ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ on Jerusalem’s temple mount. You can read his essays at https://www.ellisskolfield.net/essays. While I don’t agree with him on everything, I recommend his thought-provoking and compelling essays on ‘Dome of the Rock’ and ‘Daniel’s 70th Week.’
      – Perhaps the 2017 anniversary (120×50) in my article doesn’t signal the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week. Instead, maybe the traditional 70th week (7 year period) will start on the 70th Jubilee anniversary in 2024?

      In summary, if 2017-2024 is to be Daniel’s 70th Week, I agree that we didn’t see the fulfillment of expected mid-term events according to traditional eschatology. But, that doesn’t invalidate the math in the article pointing to the 70th Jubilee anniversary in 2024. So, whether the 70th Jubilee anniversary is the beginning, middle, or end of Daniel’s 70th Week, I’m convinced it will be a significant milestone is the ascendency of God’s kingdom rule on the earth.
      Shalom sister.

      1. Love these conversations.
        Just thinking based on what your saying here…
        Could the abomination of desolation have something to do with the 💉? It seems to be timely when it was introduced roughly 3 1/2years after 2017.
        We are the temple of YHWH now since the new covenant through Jesus and this 💉is being shown to potentially affect our DNA that was coded with YHWHs name written into our DNA. Churches were shut down and many of them complied even allowing clinics to be set up in the church building and encouraging their people to get it…

        Just a thought

          Update. Reading lower down I see others are thinking the same thing😅

          1. I listen to Dr Stephen Pidgeon quite a bit, and recently this was brought up. The gist? In normal human DNA there are 72,000 base pairs, resulting in 144,000 total genes. If another strand of DNA is “inserted”, there are now 216,000. 600x60x6 equals 216,000.

    2. We are the temple of God. Three and a half years later corresponds perfectly with the rollout of the MRNA vaccines which are able to change our DNA. That is the abomination of desolation.

      1. Yes I totally agree that we the body of Christ are the Temple of the Holy Spirit and the MRNA vax is the abominatiom of desolation that sits in the Holy place declaring Himself to be God …the DNA changes are a re coding of our Heavenly Fathers design that being we are made in His image. the Antichrist has now re coded humans into hybrids and are no longer classed as fully human and therefore salvation is no longer available to them …they have the mark of the Beast with his re coded DNA.

    3. But if we and our bodies are considered the temple of God and Covid was released in 2020 as a bioweapons to kill us and then a vaccine introduced that changes our God-given DNA then wouldn’t that be an abomination of desolation of the temple?. Just saying……

    4. It may be possible that the temple inwhich the abomination of desolation takes place is in our human bodies. Something did happen in 2020…something that would cause the destruction of the “temple”.
      The Lord led me to the “bow” greek word Toxon carried by the first horseman. It is the only place in all of scripture where Toxon is used. The etymology of Toxon led me to discover that it means poison. In Rev. Ch. 18 near the end it says that Babylon deceived the nations of the world with her Pharmakeia. Medicine, witches brew, Drug?
      Does anything come to mind here?

  10. The Bible says in Exodus 12, that God said that the New Year would be the 1st of Nisan, so that would be spring, not Yom Kippur. When did God change the New Year?? Did man change when the year began, or did God?

    1. Good question. It’ll causing me to update my article according to my answer.
      I agree that each Biblical year starts on Nisan 1 in the springtime. In fact, I don’t believe the rabbinic ‘Rosh Hashanah’ holiday on Tishri 1 is legitimate. The only ‘head of the year’ according to the Torah is on Nisan 1.
      So the question is, “On what day does the year of Jubilee begin?” Does the ‘year of Jubilee’ coincide with Israel’s annual calendar, beginning on Nisan 1, or does the year of Jubilee start when YHWH said to “sound the shofar abroad on the 10th day of the 7th month–on the Day of Atonement”? A person can make a good argument for either interpretation, but I’m now convinced the Biblical Year of Jubilee begins every 50 years on Nisan 1. I’ll explain why below.

      The main reason I’m convinced the year of Jubilee starts on Nisan 1 is because of the prohibition against planting during the 49th and 50th years of the Jubilee cycle. (Ex 25:3-12) In each Jubilee cycle the 49th year is a Shmitah (Sabbath) year, when no planting is allowed. Obviously, the 49th year begins on Nisan 1. Then, the 50th (Jubilee) year is also a Sabbath year, where no planting is allowed. This is the issue that’s resolved in Leviticus 25:20-22, where God promises to feed Israel for 3 years if they obey His commandments to rest (and not plant) in the 49th and 50th years. Therefore, in the 50th year there’s no 7-month gap before the beginning of the Jubilee year–the 50th year begins on Nisan 1, immediately after the 49th year ends. Afterward, the shofar is sounded on the 10th day of the 7th month of the 50th year.

      Exodus 25:9 doesn’t tell us the Jubilee year starts on Tishri 10 with the blowing of the shofar. It says blowing the shofar announces the Jubilee year on Yom Kippur, but it’s strictly an assumption to say that’s when the year of Jubilee begins. The shofar could be announcing a (Jubilee) reality that has been existing for 7 months since Nisan 1.
      That said, I wonder…in our future when Jubilee is fulfilled, when will all the Jubilee restoration activities begin, such as repossessing every family’s land allotment, freeing all indentured servants, etc.? Will they begin on a future Nisan 1, or on Tishri 10 when the shofar sounds?

      Regarding Tishri 10, I can think of two reasons to support an argument for the Jubilee year beginning on Yom Kippur, Tishri 10.
      First, Ezekiel’s temple vision starts in Ezekiel 40:1 saying, ” In the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year (literally, ‘Rosh Hashanah’), on the tenth day of the month—in the fourteenth year after Jerusalem had been struck down—on that very day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and He took me there.”
      Many scholars believe Ezekiel received his temple vision (chapters 40-48) on a Jubilee anniversary, based on the specific dating information he provided. But, the question is whether he meant the 10th day was literally “the beginning of the year,” or did he simply mean to say it was in early in the month of Nisan? However, if that were the case, why would he then specify it was the 10th day of the month, which most Israelites would automatically associate with Yom Kippur in the 7th month? So, Ezekiel 40:1 may link “the head of the year” with Yom Kippur and Jubilee.

      My second reason is that it’s possible the fulfillment of the year of Jubilee will start in the future on Yom Kippur during the 50th year, but when the Jubilee is announced by God’s shofar (in our future) it will start a whole new paradigm. Jubilee year is then like the 8th day of Sukkot–it’s a new beginning, a new creation. So, if that’s the case, God may revise His calendar in the age to come to commemorate our freedom.

      Since I think the arguments for Nisan 1 are stronger, I’ll update my article to reflect that perspective. Thanks for the question!

  11. This may sound too simplistic for some. But after reading your calculations, I feel compelled to point out the difference between 2017 and 2024 is seven years. The same length of days “he” will confirm with a covenant of peace.

  12. In Dec. of 2017, Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. This was the single most important end-time event I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime, although I’m seeing some crazy things, now! So yes, 2017 was very much a significant year for Israel!

    1. Michelle, I agree with you!
      Your comment reminded me of the experience I had there in May 2018, causing me to add an iPhone video and the text below to this post. You can find it above, under the heading “2017 and the 50-Year Cycle”

      Here’s the paragraph I added:
      During Israel’s 70th birthday in May 2018 I was privileged to be in Jerusalem with Dr Michael Heiser and Derek & Sharon Gilbert of Skywatch TV. As you can see in my iPhone video, Israelis filled the streets, celebrating with unbridled joy on the day the American Embassy moved there from Tel Aviv. Being there was an awesome experience!

  13. There is another sign that we should have seen if 2017 started the 7 years, that is the two witnesses. Where are they?

    1. Lauren, the Two Witnesses will prophesy during the last 3.5 years of Daniel’s 70th week–after the abomination of desolation. We can know this because their ministry lasts 1260 days and they battle against ‘the beast who comes up from the abyss’ who eventually kills them just before the 7th Trumpet is sounded at the end of the week. (Rev 11:3-15)

  14. Hey Tom, I attempted to submit a reply to this yesterday, but it disappeared. I share your sentiment about these calculations because it’s hard to pin point the starting dates, what solar/lunar calendar to use and how to line up the timelines with present day.
    My clarifications were entirely in reference to the Jubilee period because it sounded like you were saying that the 70th Jubliee started at the beginning of 2024. If we’re assuming the Exodus marks the beginning of the Jubilee period, then, by my math, the full 70 cycle period ends in Sep. 2024 and a new one Jubilee cycle would start thereafter, which happens to also fall between two different 2550 lunar day periods that fit the criteria of Daniel’s 70th week. All this begs the question as to whether the end time period precedes or follows the conclusion of the 70 Jubilee cycles. If before, then we’d reach the half way point by this March.
    Another theory that warrants consideration in my opinion is that Exodus occurred in 1408 BC or some historical event shifted the sabbatical calendar since given that conventional sabbath cycles have been assigned conclude in 1917.. 1945.. 2001, 2008… 2022. This happens to line up with the Creation Calendar starting point of 3980 BC, concluding the 6000 year period and kicking off another 2550 lunar day period. Just a thought.

    1. All this begs the question as to whether the end time period precedes or follows the conclusion of the 70 Jubilee cycles.

      I wonder if the answer can be found to the above question in Dan.7:12

      As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but an extension of life was granted to them for an appointed period of time.

      This might indicate that the end time period follows the conclusion of the 70 Jubilee cycles.

      1. Nona,

        You raise interesting questions. We’re all searching for God’s truth, and here are a couple of alternative teachings I am considering.

        CJ Lovik:
        I recently watched a video from CJ Lovik that supports Daniel’s 70th week happening after the Jubilee, as your comment suggests. He believes the 70th Jubilee will be on Yom Kippur on October 5, 2022, which will be when the church is raptured, followed by 7 years of Jacob’s Trouble. https://youtu.be/9-j8YpZH9yk
        Here are my problems with CJ’s perspective:
        – CJ Lovik bases much of his teaching on Rosh Hashanah as a New Year date. But, as I wrote in my response to Jake above, I hesitate to depend on Rosh Hashanah’s validity because it’s not explicitly referred to in scripture. Rather, it is a rabbinical tradition that started during/after Judah’s captivity in Babylon.
        – In the fulfillment of the Year of Jubilee, all slaves will be released and all believers’ inheritances will be restored. It’s a happy time of freedom and blessing. It’s also the culmination of God’s 7-day Sabbatical pattern: the weekly 7th-day Sabbath, the annual (7×7 day) Pentecost, and the final (7×7 year) Jubilee. So, I have trouble seeing how the Jubilee can be fulfilled just before the greatest period of tribulation since creation began. (Matthew 24:21) It just doesn’t seem to fit the pattern.
        – CJ also promotes a pre-trib rapture of the church, followed by 7 years of God dealing with the Jews vs the Antichrist. I try to keep an open mind toward this doctrine, but I don’t think it’s correct.
        1. I don’t believe God has two groups of believers–the church and the Jews. Rather, I believe Ephesians 2:12 and Revelation 21 teach there is one Israel that we’re all grafted into, and Yeshua is the only door into it.
        2. I don’t believe the Father would send Jesus to the cross, and millions of His disciples to martyrdom since then, but somehow God now wants to save ‘His kids’ from persecution. Rather, I believe suffering is how believers witness to their faith. The Greek word marturos literally means ‘witness.’

        Nelson Walters:
        Nelson Walters teaches a doctrine that bridges the gap between CJ and myself. Nelson teaches that during the final 7-year Shmitah period the church will be raptured after the 6th year and ‘the Great Tribulation (with Revelation’s 7 trumpets and 7 bowls) occurs during the 7th year of Daniel’s 70th week, during which I assume Abraham’s physical descendants will come to faith in Yeshua, in fulfillment of Zechariah 12:10 and Matthew 23:39. https://youtu.be/78RW2nww0m8?list=PL6SiKFl1tbEpu0WZUOpsiHxYLghpmCNEO

  15. I figured out a way to reconcile your 2024 and 2025 calculations. The problem with your 2024 calculation is that it assumes a year 0, which doesn’t exist. Because 1 BC turns to 1 AD, we don’t technically celebrate the end of a period until the end of the 0 year i.e. 2021 starts the next decade. For this reason, you need add an extra year to the time span when calculating periods before and after the CE. Thus, the start of Daniel’s 70th week is 2018 and ends 7 years later in 2025, which is also the end of the Jubilee period, which more precisely aligns with the Tishrei 1 – Tishrei 10 period lasting for 86 moons beginning in late 2025. Hope this helps.

    1. Thanks for your input Gary. I have to confess, these date calculations make my head spin. Let me ask you…does your information mean the span from 9/22/2017 to 9/14/2024 should be 9/22/2018 to 9/14/2024 on our calendars because of the year zero? Or, are you saying Daniel’s 70th week is from 9/11/2018 to 10/3/2025 because of the year zero? If so, that’s a 2580-day duration, which is 87 moons, so that’s a problem.

  16. Thanks for the article. I learn a lot from your writing. I only have one question: Where do you get the number 200 that you wrote: “200 angels cohabited and produced the nephilim with human women”?

    God bless,

    1. Timothy,

      Good question, I’ll update the site to include this reference.

      The number 200 comes from the Book of Enoch, section II, chapter 6, verses 5-8, which reads:

      “Then they all swore together, and bound themselves mutually by a curse; and together they were two hundred. And they descended on Ardis, which is the summit of Mount Hermon; and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn on it and bound themselves mutually by a curse. And these are the names of their leaders: Semjaza, who was their leader, Urakibaremeel, Akibeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Ezekeel, Saraqujal, Asael, Armers, Batraal, Anani, Zaqebe, Samsaveel, Sartael, Turel, Jomjael, Arazjal. These are the leaders of the two hundred angels, and the others all were with them.”

  17. Great article. I’ve been following End Time Pilgrim and 2025-2032 appears to be the best candidate for the 70th week to start. If the go ahead for the third temple is given, we know how close it is. The Lord’s coming can be imminent only on a given feast of trumpets, if Jesus fulfills that feast, like He has the spring feasts. If 2025 FOT begins the 70th week, then Jesus comes on FOT 2032. Interesting stuff:)

    God bless

    1. Yes, the 70th Jubilee will be in 2025, and 70th week starts from 2025 up to 2032. The calcuation goes from the year Israli entered into the Promised Land, which took place in 1446 b.c. adding forward 70 x 49 years, the following year (the 50th) will be the Jubilee Year.

      As there is no Year 0, therefore the calculation goes -1446+70*49+1 which brings us to year 2024, and the following year 2025 will be the Jubilee Year. From 2025-2032 being the Jacob’s trouble, and second coming in 2032. Which is 2000 years apart from 32 a.d. the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the first coming.

      1. Blessed Hope,
        I think we’re in general agreement, assuming two things, (1) you meant to say Israel entered the promised land in 1406BC, not 1446BC, and (2) we recognize the 70th Year of Jubilee starts on the Hebrew calendar in 2024 and then it overlaps into 2025 on the Julian calendar.

        Regarding 1446 vs 1406, the Bible Archeology reference in the article above said, “The commencement of the conquest can be dated exactly. With the exodus datable to 1446 BC, the conquest automatically is dated to 1406 BC, because for “40 years the sons of Israel walked in the wilderness” before entering Canaan (Josh 5:6). Since the crossing of the Jordan River transpired on the 10th day of the first month, a date of 28 April 1406 BC is fixed as the day in which the Israelites crossed into Canaan (Josh 4:19).”

        While I’m confident in the conclusions this article makes about the timing of the 70th Jubilee, and I drew some conclusions about the final shmitah (Daniel’s 70th week) being between 2017-2024, you raise an interesting possibility that the 70th Jubilee may be at the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week instead of being at its conclusion.

        Most people will agree the Lord meant for the Year of Jubilee to be a happy time, when we’ll enjoy complete freedom and the return of our (spiritual) inheritance. But, if it’s at the start of Jacob’s trouble, the next 7 years will include horrors and tribulation worse than mankind has ever seen (Mt 24:23). So, if the Year of Jubilee is at the beginning of the final shmitah, will the 70th Jubilee year be the fulfillment of the Jubilee typology, and if so, what will happen on earth (during Jacob’s trouble) when it’s fulfilled? Or, if the Jubilee is not going to be fulfilled on its auspicious 70th anniversary, when do you think Jubilee will be fulfilled? Perhaps at the end of the Millennium? Shalom friend.

      2. This would signal a 2024 rapture of the church which based on my studies is what I believe. Some do not believe in the rapture. In the book of revelation it says I will keep you from the hour of temptation. In Luke it states pray you are accounted worthy to escape all these things.
