Everlasting Kingdom: Unraveling the Bible’s Secrets

JUBILEE: 2028 AD

When Will Yeshua (Jesus) Return?

The Great Judgment Day
INDEX

Back Next Chapter 15, Part 2 Preview: Will Yeshua (Jesus) return during the next Jubilee year, fulfilling numerous symbolisms associated with the year of release? Yeshua presented a very unusual “mission statement” at the very beginning of His ministry. Immediately after the account of His immersion (baptism) and the account of Satan tempting Him, is a reference to some of His first recorded words. These words have JUBILEE stamped all over them! Part 2 continues providing multiple indications that the next Jubilee will literally shake the earth. The prophesied countdowns apparently all converge at that momentous point.

The Next Benchmark

Yehovah will also fulfill a prophetic “work” toward the end of the sixth millennial “day”, in preparation for the long awaited seventh millennium, the millennial Sabbath. The Two Witnesses, who will prepare the way for the Kingdom of Yehovah (Jehovah) highlight the transition from mankind’s world dominance to Yehovah’s dominion. Specifically, they will be informing those who will listen why these earth shaking events are occurring. There is significance to the fact that “three days and three nights” was the only sign given that Yeshua was the Messiah. It indicates that three more millennial “days” were remaining in Yehovah’s master plan. Then “on the THIRD DAY He will raise us up, so that we can live in His sight!” (Hosea 6:2) That “third day” begins the final “day”—the Sabbatical 1,000 year period. The “bad” news is that Their return, as I understand it, can not occur before the Jubilee year of 2028 AD, as will be shown.

Revelation 11:1-7 Then I, John, was given a measuring reed like a staff, and the messenger stood and said, “Get up and measure the Temple of Yehovah [Jehovah] and the altar and those who worship there. 2 But don’t measure the courtyard outside of the Temple. Leave it out, because it has been given to the heathens, and they’ll trample the kadosh city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 I’ll commission My Two Witnesses. They’ll prophesy for 1,260 days, wearing sackcloth. 4 They are the two olive trees and the two menorahs standing in the presence of the Aloha of the earth. 5 If anyone wants to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies—if anyone wants to harm them they must be killed in the same way. 6 These Witnesses have the power to shut up the sky, to keep rain from falling during those days [Gr. “of prophecy”], and they have power over bodies of water to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with any disaster as often as they want. 7 When they have finished witnessing, the predatory beast [Aramaic “a beast of the tooth”] that came up from the abyss will wage war against them and kill them. —The Gabriel Bible

The Two Witnesses actually typify both the Father and His Son ruling in the Kingdom, from Jerusalem, with power and authority! Notice that the Two Witnesses will “finish their testimony” just before the beast is allowed to make war against them. When the Beast kills them, then Yehovah will declare war on those who celebrate their death.

Revelation 11:10 Those who live on the earth will rejoice over them, and will be merry, and will send presents to each another because those two prophets tormented the people who live on earth.

They will have had 1,260 days to explain to the modern descendants of Israel the reason for the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. The Dragon, knowing that after 1,260 days the Witnesses will no longer be invincible will immediately have them murdered. After all, he has read the Scriptures and is quite willing to fulfill that prophecy. After this “victory”, the beast, still in a delusional rage will have trampled Jerusalem for 1,260 days. This was the second 1,260 day period: 42 months of 30 days is 1,260 days. 3.5 + 3.5 = 7, this fulfills the final “week” of the seventy “weeks” prophecy. It also ends the “second woe” of the Great Tribulation (Revelation 11:14).

Haggai Chapters 1 & 2 describes how Joshua and Zerubbabel constructed the former temple. In a similar manner, their latter day counterparts, the Two Witnesses, will build the latter temple—on schedule! This will be something to watch for shortly before in the next Jubilee.

Zechariah 4:3-10 And there are two olive trees by it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on the left. 4 I said to the Messenger who was speaking with me, “Master, what are these?” 5 Then the Messenger who was speaking with me replied, “Don’t you know what these are?” I replied, “No, Master.” 6 Then He said, “This is the Word of Yehovah to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says Yehovah the Commander. 7 Who are you, great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you’ll become a plain. He’ll bring out the Capstone [1] with shouts of ‘favorite’, He’s our favorite!” 8 The Word of Yehovah came to me. He said, 9 “Zerubbabel’s hands have laid the foundation of this Temple, and his hands will finish it. Then you’ll know that Yehovah the Commander has sent me to you. 10 Who despises the day of small things? These seven will celebrate when they see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand. They are the eyes of Yehovah, that quickly traverse the entire earth.”

[1] The “cornerstone” of Ephestians 2:20 must be the same stone as the “capstone”:

Psalm 118:22 The stone that the builders rejected has become the uppermost cornerstone. [Also Matthew 21:42, Mark 12:10, Luke 20:17, Acts 4:11, 1 Peter 2:7]

There is a breakdown of the seven aspects of Yeshua’s Mission Statement that He said pertained to “the acceptable year of the Lord” that is synonymous with the “Jubilee”! More on that later.

Luke recorded the circumstances concerning Yeshua’s mission statement:

Luke 4:16-19, 21 He went to Nazareth where He had been raised, and He went into the synagogue, as usual, on the Sabbath and stood up to read. 17 He was handed the scroll of Isaiah the prophet. Yeshua unrolled the scroll and found the place where it says: 18 “The spirit of YHVH is on Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim Good News to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the oppressed and to herald release from bondage to the captives, to give the blind vision, to assure the penitent by liberating them from their sins, 19 and TO ANNOUNCE THE ACCEPTABLY YEAR OF YEHOVAH[Jehovah]. ... 21 Then He told them, “Today this Scripture you just heard read has been fulfilled.”

I’d like to expand on these objectives because they are exceedingly important.

Mission #1

“The spirit of YHVH is on Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim Good News to the poor”: The kadosh (holy) spirit literally descended on Yeshua (Luke 3:22). Yeshua’s Good News message was in reality the beginning of the fulfillment of many prophecies.His message, like the messages of all of the prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures He quoted from so frequently concerned the coming Kingdom of Elohim (God) and the rescue (salvation) of humanity. That is the very purpose for the creation of the Kingdom, as well as the bad news of the events that must precede that wonderful time.

The Two Witnesses will sound the alarm that the nations of Israel will go into captivity under the direction of the Beast, but the response will be negligible until they are given “power”. This is a vital part of the “gospel” truth. Yet some of us can miss out on much of the destruction unleashed by the Beast, as well as the destruction that Yehovah Himself promised in Zechariah: “When I bring a sword on a land”.

Zechariah 14:2 I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem...

Just as an ordinary elected watchmen are responsible for the lives of people, the watchmen that Yehovah will send will warn modern Israel that their very lives are at stake:

Ezekiel 33:2-8 Human son, speak to your ‘countrymen’ and tell them, “If I bring the sword on a land, and the people of the land select one of their men and appoint him as their watchman, 3 and if he sees the sword coming on the land, and he blows the shofar, and warns the people, 4 then if anyone hears the sound of the shofar, and doesn’t take warning, their shed blood will be ‘their own fault’ when the sword comes and takes them out, 5 since they heard the sound of the shofar, and ignored the warning. Their shed blood will be their ‘own fault’. But if they had heeded the warning, they could have saved their lives. 6 But if the watchman sees swordsmen coming, and doesn’t blow the shofar, and the people aren’t warned, and the swordsmen come, and ‘kills’ any one of them, they are being punished for their own sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their shed blood.’ 7 As for you, human son, I’ve appointed you as a watchman for the ‘nation’ of Israel, so listen to what I say and give them a warning from Me. 8 When I announce that the wicked will surely die, and you don’t warn the wicked about their ways, those wicked people will die in their sins, but you’ll be responsible for the blood on your hands. 9 But if you warn the wicked to turn from their ways, and they don’t turn, they’ll die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.

When military guards are found sleeping while on duty they may be put to death for not being prepared to warn their “brothers”! Today’s “shepherds” (political and religious leaders) are asleep, not able to warn the sleeping flock of the devastation to come. Most are no more aware of the trials to come than they are aware that Elohin will send His Two Witnesses to announce the solution to the predicament. Yet some men who have heard the early warning from others who have some knowledge are attacking the warning. These are the kind of people who would have scorned Noah.

It’s no wonder the question is posed:

Luke 18:8 I tell you, He’ll give them justice quickly. Yet when the Human Son comes, will He find faith on the earth?”

When we also “herald the Good News to the poor” as Yeshua taught us to do, we are really referring to the spiritually poor. Lacking physical possessions in this age has little to do with our need to understand this message, except for the fact that when someone is destitute they have fewer physical distractions than when they are totally preoccupied by the cares of this world. MODERN ISRAEL HAS BEEN SPIRITUALLY MAROONED IN A SEA OF PHYSICAL WEALTH!

Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, don’t refrain, lift up your voice like a shofar, and announce to My people their disobedience, and to the house of Jacob their sins.

Both good and bad news was announced by various soundings of shofars:

Leviticus 25:9 THEN you must sound shofars loudly [U] [Literally “shofar shofar”, not Jubilee] on the tenth day of the seventh month, on the Day of Atonements you must sound shofars loudly thruout your entire land.

When Jubilee number 120 arrives the blowing of shofars (trumpets) will return. (6,000 years divided by 50 years = 120).

Revelation 11:15 The seventh messenger blew his shofar, and there were voices [the Greek adds “in heaven”] and thunder that said, “The kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of YHVH and of His Messiah, and They will reign forever and ever.”

Yehovah has reserved for His own purpose, the final year of the 6,000 year period to make His transition to power. The Day of Atonement of that year, will announce the time when Israel is at one with Yehovah, with a betrothal of the Lamb to the multitude that fled from captivity (Revelation 19:5-9). Of more interest to the kadishea (saints) is this:

1 Corinthians 15:52 In the smallest possible fraction of a second [Gr. atomos], while the last [seventh] shofar is sounding, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be transformed!

During this year the primary fulfillment of the Day of Trumpets will be realized, as will be the fulfillment of all of Israel’s 7 Apocalyptic Days!

Matthew 24:31 Then He’ll send out His spirit messengers with a loud shofar blast and they’ll gather together His selected people from the four winds [north, south, east and west], from one farthermost bound of the horizon [heaven] to the other.

It would be nice if the Bible just came out and said: This is what the Day of Trumpets represents, and this prophecy fulfills the meaning of the Jubilee, but you have to research it! The reality is that Yehovah has hidden things a little bit. That’s why even many Sabbatarians are unaware of the Biblical “Feast” Days. I really want to be there for the fulfillment of this Jubilee of Jubilees!

Mission Statement Part #2

“And has sent Me to heal the downtrodden: For over three years, Yeshua personally fulfilled His objective to begin healing the downtrodden. Most significant perhaps was His literal healing of the afflicted. He was the perfect, positive example, so much so that He never disregarded His Father’s Torah even once, setting a wrong example for another person. Still, only a few people on a small part of the earth were able to benefit from Yeshua’s actions. After Shavuot (Pentecost) of 31 AD, many more people started helping to heal the downtrodden. And during the 120th Jubilee, thousands more spirit born individuals, who will then be beyond sinning, will be powerfully representing their Elohim and righteousness, as older brothers. The traumatic dangers of the end time will be over.

Leviticus 25:13, 19 In this Year of Jubilee each of you can return to your ancestral property. ... 19 Then the land will yield its crops, and you’ll have plenty of food, and live there in security.

A tremendous cause of being brokenhearted today is oppression—man’s inhumanity to man. Again, in the Jubilee Chapter, Leviticus 25, the solution is given.

Leviticus 25:17 You must never take advantage of each other, but you must fear your Elohim, because I am Yehovah your Elohim.

When people cease to sin against each other by obeying the Ten Commandments, most of the trials that trouble us will vanish. Any “would be oppressors” will be swiftly dealt with when the next Jubilee brings in the “New World Order”. Another cause of broken heartedness that will be eliminated beginning within the next Jubilee, is that all forms of natural disasters will cease. The resulting poverty is a significant cause of being brokenhearted.

Leviticus 25:35-37 If a countryman of yours becomes poor, and cannot support himself, you are to support him as a foreigner or temporary resident, and allow him to live beside you. 36 Take no interest or profit from him, but fear your Elohim, so that your countryman can live among you. 37 You must not lend him your silver at interest, or sell your food at a profit.

Mission Statement Part #3

“To herald release from bondage to the captives”: To my knowledge, Yeshua didn’t “liberate” any alleged criminals from a prison. He didn’t free any political prisoners of war from their camps nor did He end slavery during His human ministry. Yet Yeshua began fulfilling this Scripture! Again, this was His “mission statement”. Many wonderful verses could be used to illustrate this. Everyone alive during His ministry was under the strong influence of Satan. Everyone was a slave to sin and was on death row before Yeshua became our Passover Lamb. After all, “The wages of sin is death”. (Romans 6:23) With Yeshua’s anointing in 27 AD, His promise of freedom from mental and spiritual incarceration began fulfillment. The many captives who needed to be released were all captives of Satan. Of course a much greater physical and spiritual fulfillment will occur during the Second Exodus that immediately precedes the Everlasting Kingdom—again, the part of Isaiah’s prophecy that Yeshua did not fulfill yet—perhaps because He was killed! And because He was killed, week number 70 of The Mysterious Seventy “Weeks” Prophecy of Daniel had to be postponed for two millennia!

Prior to the Second Exodus, Israel will have become like “a foreigner or temporary resident”. When Israel goes into captivity they will cry out for Jubilee and Yehovah will make it possible for His people to live in a new Promised Land!

Mission Statement Part #4

“And recovery of sight to the blind”: Of course this has both physical and spiritual fulfillment, referring obviously to the several instances when Yeshua healed the blind. This should have been a clue for the spiritually blind religious leaders of the day. The lasting significance is of course explained in John 9. This entire chapter deals with the healing of blindness of one man. This chapter also clearly sheds “light” on the spiritual significance that Yeshua later explained to that same man:

John 9:39-41 Yeshua said, “I came into the world for judgment, so that those who are blind can see, and so that those who can see will become blind. 40 Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these things and they asked Him, “Are we blind too?” 41 Yeshua told them, “If you were blind, your sins wouldn’t “stick”, but now you say, “We see”, so your sin is confirmed.”

He also said:

John 5:25 I tell you with absolute certainty that the time is coming, and now is [at the time of this writing], when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of YHVH, and those who hear it will live.

This very generation had the privilege of hearing the actual “voice of the Son of Aloha”, enabling them to obtain eternal life.

Mission Statement Part #5

“and to assure the penitent by LIBERATING them from their sins: Yeshua announced the spiritual liberation beginning at His anointing in 27 AD. Actually the plan dates back to at least “the foundation of the world”.

The kadosh (holy) spirit, that came to comfort the kadishea gives us “liberty”:

2 Corinthians 3:15-17 To this day when Moses [Torah] is read, the veil is still standing in their minds. 16 Yet when one of them is converted to the Master, the veil that completely surrounds them is taken away. 17 Now the Master Himself is the spirit. And where the spirit of the Master is there is liberty.

James 1:25 But anyone who looks into the perfect Torah of liberty, and doesn’t forsake it, isn’t someone who hears something only to forget it. Instead, they act on the Word and they’re blessed in their work.

James 2:12 So speak and act like people who are going to be judged by the Torah of liberty.

Those who are “oppressed” by “the devil” now have help to keep him at bay.

Acts 10:38 how YHVH anointed Yeshua of Nazareth with the kadosh spirit and with power. He is the One who traveled around healing those who were oppressed by evil, because YHVH was with Him.

Mission Statement Part #6

The liberty from oppression that the kadishea have now is only a foretaste of what will come when there is truly “liberty thruout the land” following the next Jubilee year—the Second Exodus!

Leviticus 25:10 You must dedicate the fiftieth year, and proclaim [or read] liberty thruout the land to everyone who lives there. It will be your Jubilee. Each of you can return to your own property, and each of you can return to your own clan.

“AND TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF YEHOVAH”:

This is the part that no one believes! It’s not that the meaning is obscured, but that the literal truth continues to be spiritualized away! Even the writer of the commentary in my old Bible is aware of the literal meaning of this phrase. He stated that this phrase is:

“an allusion to Jubilee. This was every fiftieth year, in which all debt was forgiven, slaves were given their freedom, and ancestral lands were given back to their original family. The year of Jubilee allowed for a new start. (See Leviticus 25:10) Yeshua offers a total cancellation of spiritual debt and a new beginning for those who respond to His message.”

Of course these “scholars” say, when asked, that Yeshua was strictly speaking of spiritual things or that He was merely speaking figuratively or some other such fluff. Yet the crowd tried to kill Yeshua immediately after He finished His comments! You don’t risk your life over fluff. Again, this was His “mission statement”, Yeshua proclaimed, announced, declared and disclosed the significance of the Jubilee year! Only when Yeshua began to proclaim His “Good News” before the “acceptable year” of 28 AD, were the spiritual freedoms of the Jubilee begun. It’s not likely that Elohim’s (Yehovah’s) people could ever institute many of the physical requirements of the Jubilee. That requires a civil government—something that won’t happen until the restoration of the twelve tribes of Israel! However, the ability to more deeply understand the seven millennium long plan of Yehovah is important. In the millennium, “land Sabbatarians” won’t be able to go to a store and buy freshly harvested food provided by “land Sabbath breakers”, as everyone will almost immediately be participating in Biblical agriculture, once they learn about it at the Feast of Tabernacles. This prophecy concerns “My servant’s” amazing destiny:

Isaiah 49:6-10 He asks, “It is too small of a thing for you to be My servant to reestablish the tribes of Jacob, and to bring back the Israelites who werespared?’ I’ll make you a light to the nations, so that you can bring My message of deliverance to the remotest parts of the earth.” 7 This is what Yehovah says, the Redeemer of Israel, and ‘their’ Kadosh One, to the One who man despises, to the One who the nation abhors, to the Servant of rulers: Kings will see You and rise, and leaders will bow down, because of Yehovah who is faithful, the Kadosh One of Israel, who has chosen You. 8 This is what Yehovah says: In a favorable time have I answered You, and in a day of deliverance I have helped You. I’ll protect You [the Messiah: Barnes] and give You to the people as a covenant [the covenantee], to restore the land, and to repossess its desolate heritage. 9 You will say to the prisoners, “Come out” and to those who are in darkness, “Show yourselves”! They’ll be My sheep, grazing along the roads and finding pastures on all the high places that had been bare. 10 They won’t hunger or thirst, nor will the heat or sun beat down on them, because the One who has mercy on them will lead them. He’ll guide them to springs of water.

The “acceptable time” spoken of here is “an illusion to” the acceptable Jubilee year when Yeshua and His Father will return! It is a rescue operation that has a lot to do with releasing prisoners, and with the environment. It affects pastures, highways, and springs of water, even the intensity of the sun.

Mission Statement Conclusion

Luke 4:20-21 He rolled up the scroll and gave it to the attendant and sat down. Everyone in the synagogue was gazing at Him. 21 Then He told them, “Today this Scripture you just heard read has been fulfilled.”

The Messiah’s Mission Statement was completed once He applied those six statements to that very day. If anyone had hearing ears, He was saying that He was the Messiah!

For three and a half years Yeshua incrementally began making known Yehovah’s plan, ultimately revealing that He was the Messiah and was to become the Passover lamb. However it wasn’t until Pentecost of 31 AD, that His own disciples began to fully comprehend it! It is of paramount importance to notice that He only chose to quote for a few seconds. This makes what little He did say of all the more importance! “No prophet is accepted in his own country”, He told them. (v.24). He stated in advance that they would reject Him. Next Yeshua gave a sobering comparison of the three year famine that Yehovah brought thru Elijah, to His three year mission. Only one widow believed Elijah. Yeshua also had precious little credibility. (Luke 4:25-26) Then they tried to “throw Him down over a cliff”! (v.29) Again referring to the original quote from Isaiah, it is important to notice that He quit quoting in the middle of a sentence! Had He finished the sentence He would have quoted, “and the day of vengeance of our Aloha...” (Isaiah 61:2) Once we can determine which year is “the acceptable year of Yehovah”, we can also determine when the next phase of the kadosh plan begins—the “Day of Yehovah”. This chapter then lists many other occurrences describing the millennium. Yeshua’s earthly ministry began the fulfillment of these jubilant objectives. Following Satan’s wrath there will be a Jubilee year of tremendous importance. This will take place exactly forty Jubilee cycles after Yeshua proceeded to “proclaim the acceptable year of Yehovah”. Remember that the last year of this actual millennium is a Jubilee. (6000 is divisible by 50). The year 6001 since Adam begins the seventh millennium. All of the tremendous meanings of all seven Feast Days will have begun a latter fulfillment within the time frame of one special Jubilee year, including “the Last Day, that Great Day of the Feast” that portrays eternal life being made available to “anyone” who “thirsts” (John 7:37). After the captivity of Israel is over, there will be a lot of “thirsty” survivors!

Isaiah said that even the fasting of the people is for “wickedness”. He continued commenting about Atonement and the “acceptable day”.

Isaiah 58:5-7 Is this the kind of fast that I’ve chosen? Isn’t this a day for people to humble themselves? Shouldn’t you bow your heads down like reeds, spreading sackcloth and ashes to lie on? Would you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to Yehovah? 6 Isn’t this the fast that I’ve chosen: to release the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? 7 Isn’t it to share your bread with the hungry, and bring the wandering poor into your house? And cover he naked with clothes when you see them, rather than hide from your own ‘relatives’?

There is a direct connection between the Day of Atonements and the objectives of the Jubilee year! Mankind thinks that today we are acceptable to Yehovah, “just as we are”. To Yehovah, the “acceptable day” (Atonements) of the “acceptable year” (Jubilee year) will require, among other things, the widespread application of the blessings just mentioned. When this day comes then:

Isaiah 58:12 Some of your people will rebuild the ancient ruins, you’ll raise up the foundations of many generations. You’ll be called ‘those who’ repair broken walls and restore the streets where people live.”

Here is an entirely separate reason to believe that we must wait a full 2,000 years until the time when “He will come to us”! The context of this refers to both the original fall of Israel and quite specifically, to the soon to occur fall of the Israelite nations!

Hosea 5:6-6:3 They’ll go with their flocks and their herds to seek Yehovah, but they won’t find Him. He has withdrawn Himself from them. 7 They are unfaithful to Yehovah, because they’ve borne illegitimate children. Now within a month [?] [literally a new moon] they’ll be devoured, along with their fields. 8 Blow the cornet in Gibeah, and the ancient trumpet in Ramah! Sound a battle cry in Beth Aven, behind you, Benjamin! 9 Ephraim will become a desolation in the day of reprimand. Among the tribes of Israel, I’ve revealed what will surely be. 10 The leaders of Judah are like those who remove a landmark. I’ll pour out My wrath on them like water. 11 Ephraim is oppressed, he is crushed in judgment, because he is intent in his pursuit of idols. 12 So to Ephraim I’m like a moth, and to the tribe of Judah like rottenness. 13 When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his wound, then Ephraim went to Assyria, and sent to king Jareb, but he isn’t able to heal you, nor will he cure you of your wound. 14 Because I’ll be to Ephraim like a lion, and like a young lion to the tribe of Judah. I will tear them in pieces and go away. I’ll carry them off, and there will be no one to save them. 15 Then I [Yeshua] will go away, returning to My place [Heaven] until they admit their guilt and seek My ‘presence’. In their tribulation they’ll earnestly search for Me. (Ignore the chapter break.) 6:1 So come, let’s return to Yehovah, because He has torn us to pieces, but He’ll heal us. He’s wounded us, but He’ll bandage our wounds. 2 He’ll revive [resurrect] us after two [millennial] days. On the third [millennial] day He’ll raise us up, so we can live in His presence. 3 We should acknowledge Yehovah. We must press on to know Him. As surely as the sun rises, His arrival is firmly established. He’ll come to us like the rain, like the ‘spring rains’ that water the earth.

Yehovah will “cut short” Satan’s reign during the Jubilee year. If the timing of the phrase “After two days He’ll revive us” is a reference to the re-establishment of the monarchy of Israel after the captivity and oppression that will occur at the close of the “second millennial day”, then wouldn’t it also refer to the first resurrection that is at the very end of “two” millennial “days” (2028 AD), when the “third” millennial “day” is about to dawn? The beginning of the next millennium appears to be “ON the third ‘day’”. The word “days” is meaningless in this context to anyone not familiar with the “day for a year principle”.

Daniel 12 is entirely about three separate countdowns that all culminate in “the fulfillment of these wonders” when “all these things will be finished”. Specifically, Daniel was told that he “and arise to your compensation, at the end of the days [age]” (v.13). Understanding when “the end of the days” or “countdowns” takes place should certainly be intriguing to the kadishea (saints). Following Daniel 12:13 below is a commentary on how all of these dates are likely to apply prior to the Jubilee.

Daniel 12:1-10 AT THAT TIME, Michael will take a stand, the great leader who stands for your ‘countrymen’, and there will be a time of trouble [the great Tribulation], such as there has never been since the first nation up until that time, AND AT THAT TIME [during the “time of the end!”] your people will be rescued, everyone whose names are still found {niphal} recorded in the Book [of Life]. 2 Multitudes of people sleeping in the dust of the earth will awaken, some of them to everlasting life, and the others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. 4 But Daniel, keep this message a secret, and put a seal on the book until the time of the end. Many will travel around quickly, and knowledge will greatly increase [Hebrew shoot!] 5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and there were two others standing there. One was on the bank of the river on this side, and one on the opposite bank of the river. 6 One asked the man dressed in linen, who was hovering above the river water, “How long will it be until the end of these miracles?” 7 I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the water of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by the One who lives forever that it will be for a time, [a year], times [2 years], and half a time [1/2 a year], and when they’ve made an end of breaking in pieces the power of the kadosh people, all of these things will be finished. 8 I heard, but I didn’t understand, so I asked, “Master, what will be the end result of these miracles?” 9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the matter is secret and sealed until the end times. 10 Many will purify and refine themselves, but the wicked will continue to be wicked, and none of the wicked will understand, but those with discernment will understand.

Daniel will arise at the end of these countdowns!

(During the “time of trouble” a faithful remnant will be protected in Yehovah’s “Tabernacle” until the time of the first resurrection.)

Psalm 27:5 In the time of trouble He’ll protect me secretly in His pavilion. In the secret place of His tabernacle He’ll hide me. He’ll set me high on a ROCK. [See New Jerusalem, a Place of Safety!—Surviving the Great Tribulation.]

The 1,260 Day Message

The “Two Witnesses Chapter” tells us plainly what the 1,260 day period is. Keep in mind that prophetic months are always 30 days:

Revelation 11:2-3 But don’t measure the courtyard outside of the Temple. Leave it out, because it has been given to the heathens, and they’ll trample the kadosh city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 I’ll commission My Two Witnesses. They’ll prophesy for 1,260 days, wearing sackcloth.

Their incredible message that lasts precisely 1,260 days (Revelation 11:3-15) is revealed to Israel beginning on day one of the Great Tribulation (Revelation 11:3, 7-11,15). These forty-two months, or three and one half years, are the second half of a seven year long period. Together, these periods comprise the final week of the seventy weeks prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27). The final horrible period begins with the invasion of foreign kings into Jerusalem in what I expect will be 2024 AD!

What might be the first mighty sign performed by the Two Witnesses? Has 42 months ever been a 1,260 day period? Not since the seventh century BC! This is addressed in THE YEAR OF 360 DAYS. Because Yehovah gave us the exact number of days of the Great Tribulation and said that this was the equivalent of 42 months, it seems likely that the Two Witnesses are going to fix the heavenly clock as a miraculous sign, either that or they might predict a fantastic event, such as a close encounter of the earth with a comet or meteorite! Daniel, being precise, indicated that there was a 3½ year countdown associated with the 1,290 day countdown (Daniel 12:7-12). The earth will speed up and make its circuit around the sun in 360 days, correcting the five day discrepancy (5/365) of twelve perfect 30 day months. That in itself would impress thinking people, but a much more impressive “sign” accompanying that sign would be the institution of the different orbit of the “two great lights”. With only a five degree adjustment we would have total monthly lunar eclipses marking every New Moon (the other 5/360 fractional adjustment). Full monthly solar eclipses, accompanying thirty day lunar cycles would shock the world. As Yehovah said:

Genesis 1:14-15 Then Yehovah said, “There should be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, they should be for signs [of things to come], and Appointed Festivals [not seasons], days and years, 15 to serve as lights in the expanse of sky to provide light on the earth.” And it was so.

The Hebrew word for “signs” often means “miraculous signs”. Sure we understand that the sun and moon and stars are for marking “days”, “years” and “seasons”, but what about the first reference to “signs”! Miraculous signs in the heavens occur when the heavenly bodies stop doing what is “normal”!

The 1,290 day countdown indicates that another important event occurs thirty days prior to the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Here is what that event is:

Daniel 12:11 From the time that the continuous burnt ze’bakim [sacrifices] are abolished, and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days.

This event is so specific and the timing is so sure that some of the wise will be able to positively discern that they must flee immediately. They must pray that their flight won’t be during “winter” (Matthew 28:20) because, under these trying times, a thirty day delay is going to present a serious challenge! Among other things a serious multi national military threat will wipe out those lacking the faith to proceed. It may be reminiscent of when Israel was between the Egyptian army and the Red Sea. Those escaping will likely be severely tested at this time.

There is no direct explanation for the last period of time, but there are two major clues:

Daniel 12:12-13 Blessed are those who wait for and attain the 1,335 days [1]. 13 But go your way until the end, because you will remain resting, and arise to your compensation, at the end of the days [age].

[1] On the surface the end of the days” appears to mean that Daniel would arise at the end of the 1,335 days. But that flatly contradicts Matthew 24. It doesn’t mean that. (Interestingly, the other place usually translated as “the end of the days” refers to the end of the seven year period when Nebuchadnezzar lived as a wild beast, Daniel 4:34.) Actually, the phrase “the end of the days” used in this context means the same thing that all eight instances of the “last days” refer to in the Bible, and all eleven references to the “latter days” means “the end of the age.

The clues that we have for this countdown are that some are “blessed” and that they “wait”. This indicates that there are indeed two departure times for those who are to escape, as other Scriptures indicate, to gather the “wise” remnant of Israel to a place of safety. One group has to fly madly like a bat out of, um, a cave, to escape. The other group, having 45 days more advance notice, are indeed fortunate because they will leisurely depart, blessed with time, among other things! They will be able to wait in a secure place for the gathering storm to pass!

Isaiah 52:9-12 Break out into shouts of joy, you ruined places of Jerusalem, because Yehovah has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem. 10 Yehovah has bared His kadosh arm [for battle: Barnes] within view of all the nations, and all of the remotest parts of the earth have seen the deliverance of our Elohim. 11 Leave! Leave, get away from there! Touch nothing unclean! Get out of her ‘presence’! Cleanse yourselves, you who bear the vessels of Yehovah. 12 You won’t go out in a hurry, nor will you go as fugitives, because Yehovah will go before you, and the Elohim of Israel will be your rear guard.

This does not apply to the Daniel 12:12 above. This is a reference to the regathering of Israel, the second exodus, this time from modern Babylon at the end of the Tribulation “but righteous people are rescued by KNOWLEDGE.” (Proverbs 11:9)

The Two Witnesses will have warned the remaining kadishea (meaning Israelites and/or true Believers) to watch for the invasion of Jerusalem in 45 days. These kadishea will certainly by then understand the seven year countdown, the likely twelve year countdown (See: The Beast of 2015 AD), as well as the 2,000 year countdown!

Following these countdowns brings us to the point of Revelation 14 where the 144,000 stand “before Yehovah’s throne”, completing all of the countdowns. Our 1,260 days in the wilderness is over. Yehovah is now here with an agenda! “Babylon is fallen”, but the beast is still alive, “If anyone worships the beast...” (v.9). Other people are waking up, but it is also a time of martyrdom. “Blessed are the dead who die in Yehovah from now on.”

Jubilee Conditions Will Soon Take Humanity by Surprise!

Here is an observation from the book of Joshua that I heard from a friend. The point was to show a possible link between Yeshua’s resurrection and His return about two thousand years later. Perhaps it is not coincidental that the phrase “after three days” is mentioned fourteen times in reference to Yeshua’s resurrection. After three days He reminded His followers of the importance the mission that He had just finished in a most remarkable manner. Perhaps the modern day Levites will have possession of the ark of the covenant for three days or three years prior to the Beast defiling the temple.

Joshua 3:1-13 Joshua got up early in the morning, and he and all the Israelites left Acacia Grove and went to the Jordan. They camped there before crossing over. 2 Then after three days, the officers went thru the camp, 3 and they commanded the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of Yehovah your Elohim and the priests and the Levites carrying it, you must break camp and follow them. 4 You must keep a space between you and them of about 2,000 cubits in length. Don’t come near them to find out which way to go, because you haven’t passed this way before.” 5 Joshua told to the people, “Dedicate yourselves, because tomorrow Yehovah will do amazing things among you.” 6 Joshua said to the priests, “Pick up the ark of the covenant, and cross over ahead of the people.” So they picked up the ark of the covenant and left ahead of them. 7 Yehovah told Joshua, “Today I’ll begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, so that they’ll know that I’m with you, just like I was with Moses. 8 Order the priests who carry the ark of the covenant: ‘When you reach the banks of the Jordan River, go and stand in the river.’”

9 Joshua told the Israelites, “Come here, and listen to the words of Yehovah your Elohim.” 10 Joshua said, “Here is how you’ll really know that the living Elohim is among you, and that He’ll force out the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, and the Jebusites ahead of you. 11 Watch the ark of the covenant of the Sovereign of the entire earth as it crosses over before you into the Jordan! 12 Now choose twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one from each tribe. 13 Once the priests who carry the ark of Yehovah, the Sovereign of the entire earth, set foot in the water of the Jordan, the flow of water of the Jordan will be cut off and the water flowing from upstream will stop and stand up like a wall.”

Might “the soles of the feet” of the priests above have to do with Yeshua standing on the Mount of Olives again—two thousand years after the fulfillment of the first sixty nine “weeks” of the seventy weeks prophecy, Satan’s advance will be stopped like the Jordan river was.

Joshua 3:17 The priests bearing the ark of the covenant of Yehovah stood firmly on dry ground in the middle of the Jordan as all Israel crossed over on dry ground until the entire nation had finished crossing the Jordan.

The ark of the covenant definitely has something to do with end time prophecy:

Revelation 11:19 The Temple of YHVH in the sky was opened, and the ark of His covenant was visible inside His Temple. There was lightning and thunder and voices, an earthquake and huge hail.

While the earthly ark may vanish, the heavenly original is where Yehovah resides!

Isaiah 37:16 Yehovah the Commander, the Elohim of Israel, the One who is enthroned among the cherubim, You alone are the Elohim of all the kingdoms of the earth. You’ve made heaven and earth.

There are other possible clues relating to “two thousand” in the following two Scriptures:

1 Kings 7:25-26 ‘The sea’ stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, three facing west, three facing toward the south, and three facing east. The sea was set on top of them, and their hindquarters faced the center. 26 It was a handbreadth thick, and its brim was fashioned like the brim of a cup or a lily flower. It held two thousand baths [11,000 gallons].

Numbers 35:1-5 Yehovah spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan opposite Jericho. He said, 2 “Command the Israelites to give the Levites some of the property they’ll inherit for towns to live in and the pastureland surrounding them. 3 The towns will be for them to live in, and their pasturelands will be for their herds, flocks, and all their other livestock. 4 The pasturelands surrounding the towns that you give to the Levites will extend a thousand cubits [1,500 feet] from the town walls in every direction. 5 Measure outside of town on the east side two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand cubits, and on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side two thousand cubits, with the town in the center. This will belong to them as ‘agricultural land’ [Gill’s] for their towns.

If even some of these understandings are right, then prepare to “Proclaim the acceptable YEAR of Yehovah”!

Chapter 16 is Will the Universe Be Destroyed?  Chapters

I was astonished (in 2017) to find this decades old analysis of end time prophecy by Ernest Martin, his last work. But I was surprised that he did not use Luke 4, the very backbone of my Jubilee 2028 chapter that also concludes this age in 2028 as my relative (?, I’m feelin’ some kinship) did, who I've linked to for years!
