Our Current Sabbatical Cycle
Our Current Sabbatical Cycle
Will it be our last?
I just finished reading an excellent article in Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry magazine, Restoration Times, Nov.-Dec. 2016, titled “Neglected Truths in the Sabbaticals and Jubilees”, by the late Donald R. Mansager. I encourage you to ask them for a copy of their great magazine.
I believe the brothers at Yahweh’s Restoration Ministry understand the correct sabbatical cycles. They claim we just ended the sabbatical year of 2015-2016 at the recently observed Day of Atonement, 2016. I agree. They state that the next Sabbatical year is 2022-2023 AD. I agree.
What my brothers failed to mention in the article is that the next sabbatical year of 2022-2023 AD is the 49th year of the 7th Septennate in the current Jubilee Cycle, as pinpointed by the prophet Ezekiel in Eze. 1:1-3, “And it happened in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth of the month, as I was among the captives by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Yehovah. 2On the fifth of the month, the fifth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin the king, 3coming the Word of Yehovah existing, came to pass to Ezekiel, the son of Buzi, the priest, in the land of the Chaldeans, by the river Chebar. And there the hand of Yehovah was on him.” Ezekiel wrote these verses in the summer of 594 BC, in the thirtieth year of the Jubilee Cycle, which began in the fall of 595 BC. This Scripture passage ties Ezekiel to the 19th Jubilee since Joshua and the Israelites entered the Promised Land. Ezekiel’s Jubilee occurred in 576-575 BC. This Jubilee year is synchronized and verified by Ezekiel 40:1, “In the twenty fifth year of our exile, in the beginning of the year (Rosh Hashanah in the Hebrew, only time mentioned in Scripture!!), in the tenth of the month (Day of Atonement), in the fourteenth year after the city was struck (Jerusalem fell in the summer of 589 BC!!), on that same day the hand of Yehovah was on me, and He brought me there.” By synchronizing Ezekiel 1:1-3 and 40:1, we see that Ezekiel is announcing the Jubilee Year of 576-575 BC! These passages are the only ones in Scripture that announce, synchronize, and confirm the ancient Jubilee Cycles of the Hebrews.
Well, if you add 53 Jubilees to that 19th Jubilee in 576-575 BC, you will come to the 72nd Jubilee in 2022-2023 AD!! You can verify my numbers yourself, the next Jubilee should be announced on the Day of Atonement in 2022 AD, the 7th year of this Sabbatical cycle, and 49th year of this Jubilee cycle. Ezekiel’s Jubilee ended on the Day of Atonement in 575 BC. Add 2022 + 575 = 2,597 years. 2,597 / 7 = 371 sabbatical cycles from 576-575 BC to 2022/23 AD. 2,597 / 49 = 53 Jubilee cycles from 576/575 BC to 2022-23 AD. 53 * 7 = 371. The 19th Jubilee + 53 Jubilees = 72nd Jubilee in 2022-23 AD. Folks, we may have just entered Daniel’s 70th Week! It is possible that Yeshua could return in the year 2022-23 AD! It is possible.
Here’s where I believe we are on the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles:
2016 = year 1 of Sabbatical cycle and year 43 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 484th
2017 = year 2 of Sabbatical cycle and year 44 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 485th
2018 = year 3 of Sabbatical cycle and year 45 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 486th
2019 = year 4 of Sabbatical cycle and year 46 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 487th
2020 = year 5 of Sabbatical cycle and year 47 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 488th
2021 = year 6 of Sabbatical cycle and year 48 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 489th
2022 = year 7 of Sabbatical cycle and year 49 of 72nd Jubilee cycle, Daniel’s 490th
2023 = year 8 (1) of Sabbatical cycle and year 50 (1) of 72nd (73rd) Jubilee cycle, Yeshua Advent 2.0
8 is the number of new beginnings! The Yeshua Advent 2.0 could occur anywhere from Day of Trumpets in 2022 to Day of Atonement in 2023 AD. Yeshua is in no way obligated to fulfill my schedule or calendar, but He is obligated to fulfill His own promise prophecies. He is coming to earth soon, hope you all are ready to meet Him face to face!
