You shall count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years, so that the time of the seven weeks of years shall give you forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, when each of you shall return to his property and each of you shall return to his clan. That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of itself nor gather the grapes from the undressed vines. For it is a jubilee. It shall be holy to you. You may eat the produce of the field. Leviticus 25:8-12
This will be about the prophetic significance of the numbers associated with past and future Jubilee years. Every 50th year the Jubilee was to be celebrated where nobody was to work the land and debts are forgiven. It was a time for liberty and forgiveness for all inhabitants. The number patterns we are dealing with are intentional and have meaning. Nothing in Yahweh’s created order is without implication.
Jubilee cycles have significance in the overall prophetic timeline. In studying these cycles I’ve come across some interesting patterns that tend to coincide with specific dates. Many of these dates converge with each other although belonging to number patterns distinct from one another. If one is serious about uncovering the truth they must pay attention to these number sequences that clearly point to sovereign design. The numbers we will focus on regarding the number of Jubilee cycles as well as exact years are 120, 70 and 50. Some of these Jubilee cycles are not agreed upon by all scholars but in my research they appear to be the most reasonable time frames one can conclude using the biblical historical accounts along with archaeological data.
I’m not going to defend how many have arrived at these numbers and while some might vary by a few Jubilees (50-150 years) there seems to be agreement on the following: 50 Jubilees from creation to exodus, 70 from exodus to present day and therefore 120 in total since creation. What is most compelling to me is when you begin applying the biblical meanings of these numbers along with the numerical patterns of our last 120 years of history as it relates to Israel. Keep in mind that even if we are off by up to 50 years we can still be in the same Jubilee cycle. In other words, there is a small room for error but my intention here is to point towards the prophetic meaning and interpretation of these numbers assuming they are correct. If you doubt the accuracy of this Jubilee count I encourage you attempt to arrive at a more reasonable conclusion.
50 (Creation to Exodus)
The number 50 means deliverance or freedom from bondage. It is the year of rest in a Jubilee cycle when debts are forgiven and slaves are set free. It is also the number of grace (5) times the number of completeness (10). Yahweh created the earth and through His grace set His people free from the bondage of the Egyptians. This was the ultimate Jubilee at that time. It was the Jubilee of the Jubilee cycles. The 50th representing the literal deliverance from bondage at the hands of pharaoh.
70 (Exodus to Present Day/2017)
The number of perfection (7) times the number of completion (10).
70 sevens in Daniel (490 years)
The temple was destroyed in 70 A.D.
120 (Creation to Present Day/2017)
Represents the divinely appointed waiting period. Genesis 6:3 states, And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” Some interpret this to mean that Yahweh placed an expiration date on man. Excluding environmental factors, disease, war and the like it can be reasonably assumed that the human body could live 120 years. I believe this interpretation to be accurate but I contend there are additional levels to this meaning. The Torah has a way of saying much with little and having layers of meaning which does not contradict itself. I believe Yahweh meant 120 years of life for individuals but possibly 120 Jubilee cycles creation as well.
If we consider the first Zionist Congress of 1897 the parallel to creation as the micro version of this smaller bookend of history we begin to see an interesting symmetry. As you may recall from my previous Revelation 12 Virgo article about 2017 many prophetic events converge. The events beginning with 1897 up to 2018 are all interconnected by 120, 70 and 50. Take any date and see how it will connect to another by one of these intervals in an unmistakable way. The probability of this connectivity is beyond man made coincidence.
- 1897 = 50 years to UN resolution recognizing Israel as a state (1947)
- 1897 = 70 years to 6 day war reclaiming Jerusalem (1967)
- 1897 = 120 years to Revelation 12 Virgo sign (2017)
- 1917 = 50 years to 6 day war reclaiming Jerusalem (1967)
- 1917 = 100 years to Revelation 12 Virgo sign (2017)
- 1947 = 70 years to Revelation 12 Virgo sign (2017)
- 1948 = 70 years to Temple being rebuilt (2018)
- 1967 = 50 years to Revelation 12 Virgo sign (2017)
The temple was destroyed in 70 AD and 1,948 (1948 Israel) years after this date is 2018. Also, it’s important to note that the time span between the 3 blood moons that separated 1948, 1967 and our current 2014-15 lunar tetrads is 19 years and 48 years respectively. The connecting time frames from all these significant dates in Jewish history is undeniable. If Israel was founded in 1949 or 1950 the whole thing is thrown off. If the first Zionist Congress was established one year later in 1898 the whole thing falls apart. Seemingly held together by a thread this web of intricacy is a testament to the sovereign hand at work. Yahweh’s covenant with His people being fulfilled before our eyes yet few have the clarity to see.
Putting it Together
My Spirit shall not always strive with man…. we have the 120 “years” from creation but also the 120 year starting gun which began in 1897 as we approach the 120th Jubilee cycle since creation.
“But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8
There were six days of creation followed by one day of rest. It is 6,000 years of creation followed by 1,000 years of rest in the Millennium. My role is not to present or defend doctrine but rather to point out patterns. We have clear patterns in Yahweh’s order and whether or not the majority of humanity recognizes this truth does not change its reality.
50 is the number of grace of times perfect order. Yahweh’s grace rescued His people out of Egypt during the 50th Jubilee cycle. In the upcoming years we approach the 70th Jubilee cycle from this period. The divine number 7 times perfect order (10) is represented in this soon approaching Jubilee. Not only is this a 70th Jubilee but it is also a 120th Jubilee counted from creation. Through His perfect order in the completion of His divine waiting period He will restore all things as predestined by His sovereign will.
