Speculation on the Jubilee year and the coming of Christ

While we can’t ever know the day and the hour, I believe we can know the time, the era, the years for example based on signs of the times as is described in the bible.

This below shouldn’t be taken as fact but it is very interesting speculation for the Christian interested in and fascinated by bible prophecy and how it relates to the jewish calendar and customs.

Well, the last Jubilee year occured from Sept. 24, 1966 to Oct. 13, 1967 (these dates are from atonement/yom kippur 1966 to atonement/yom kippur 1967). This entire span of time from Sept. 24, 1966 to Oct. 13, 1967 of the following year was the Jubilee year. And it was WITHIN this period of time (Jubilee) that Israel recaptured Jerusalem on June 7, 1967. So looking to the next Jubilee we count 49 years of 365.25 days, from Sept. 24, 1966 and literally end up at Sept. 22, 2015…with the next day September 23, 2015 being the START of that extra 50th Jubilee year, which would run through to Oct. 12, 2016. Perhaps this is why Rabbi’s in Israel celebrated the last Shmita (Sabbath) year from Sept 22, 2007 to Oct 8, 2008 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shmita, because the next Shmita year ocurrs 7 yrs later from Oct. 4, 2014 to Sept. 22, 2015, the next day being Jubilee from Sept. 23, 2015 to Oct. 11, 2016

Read everything with a grain of salt, weighing it against the bible through your own reading and praying (more of which I honestly need to do).  These are super cool conjectures and things to think on though and to whet your appetite for the coming of the Lord. These days we are all so blah about bible prophecy, not even sure most really believe Jesus is coming soon… The more you get into these biblical patterns though, the more you see the world through the eyes of Gods word and bible prophecy and the more interesting world news becomes.

If you’re saved, you can’t wait to get home and if you can’t wait to get home, you’ll be looking for the road signs along the way that let you know how close you are. Bible prophecy provides all the road signs. We are SO close to the exit in the history of the earth!
