Jubilee Calendar Synopsis

I wish to present a synopsis of those key calendar pages from an ExcelÔ formatted Jubilee Calendar which especially highlights the fact that Yahweh (our Creator) has indeed encoded a special "Jubilee Code" in the Bible.  Yahweh does this through the genealogies from Genesis that most of us have considered some of the most boring and non-essential parts of the Bible.  Strangely, once the realization hits home that these genealogies contain some of the most fantastic codes ever known--that perception on the part of many people will quickly change.  I like to call this "HOLY MATH!"

For those who are not eager to make use of that ExcelÔ format to go through over 150 pages of the actual Jubilee Calendar, and not wishing to browse through countless pages of confusing layout, this Jubilee Calendar Synopsis gets straight down to business. While opening up and making such a document can be a daunting task, this synopsis should prove to be quite enlightening and easy to understand.  

Here are some sample pages from the Jubilee Calendar which prove beyond any doubt that Yahweh is indeed in control of our historical timeline.

First, here is an explanation to help the reader understand how to decode the Jubilee Calendar.

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 1

While this may seem unconvincing, I present this in the interest of continuity.  We have to have a starting point, and it would seem that Creation is that starting point.  How we got to this point (to be able to determine the year of Creation) is another story, best answered by reviewing my comments in this regard on the Jubilee Code page, or the answering objections page.

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 19

Here is the first of a long line of unusual alignments between the Jubilee Calendar and the Genesis Chronologies.  Who would have thought that the lives of the patriarchs (starting with Adam himself) would line up perfectly with the 49 year Jubilee cycles?

Genesis 5:5 says that Adam lived 930 years, then he died.  What many people do not realize is that when anyone lives a certain amount of years and are said to have died at age X it does not necessarily mean that they died in the year X of their life.  Adam did not live exactly 930 years, he lived 930 years plus some untold number of months.  That means he died in the year 931.

Just Do the Math. . .

931 ÷ 49 = 19

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 33

Shem is born on a year of Jubilee.  We can already suspect that this is true by the fact that Genesis 11:10 says he has a son at the age of 100, 2 years after the flood.  100 - 2 = 98 / 98 ÷ 2 = 49.  The fact that he was 2 Jubilee cycles old when the flood was completed strongly suggests that there is a connection between the flood and the 49 year cycles.

Based upon the text of Genesis, prior to the flood they used an "accession year" method of dating. For more information about accession year dating, please read my study on Dating Events in Ancient History. Genesis 7:6 plainly states that Noah was 600 years old when the flood took place. But Genesis 7:11 states that the flood took place in the 2nd month, the 17th day of the month, of the 600th year. Apparently, they were living so close to the original time of creation that the celebration of the original creation was more important than birthdays.  Therefore, they would wait until the next new year after their birth to begin the count of their years. This means that they were following the calendar to establish the length of their lives, and that before the flood they did not count their “accession year”--a method which is known to be used later by the kings of Israel. This calendar was a fall-to-fall calendar, and it began at the Creation Date. Having determined this is true, we are now able to align all dates with the calendar in their proper sequence. Since there are 1656 years plus 10 accession years between the creation and the beginning of the flood (1656 + 10 = 1666), that places the start of the flood in a 49th year (49 X 34 = 1666). That next year would be the end of the flood in the year 1667, a Jubilee year. According to Genesis 11:10, Shem was 100 years old at the birth of his son Arphaxed (which took place 2 years after the flood). That indicates the flood ended in his 98th year, which, if it were a year of Jubilee, Shem was also born on a year of Jubilee. 

Just Do the Math. . .

100 - 2 = 98

98 ÷ 49 = 2

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 34

As mentioned in our notation regarding the birth of Shem, we know based upon the text of Genesis that prior to the flood they used something like an "accession year" method of dating, which means that to determine the correct chronology we would have to add 1 year for each generation. Adam to Seth = 130, Seth to Enosh = 105, Enosh to Kenan = 90, Kenan to Mahalel = 70, Mahalel to Jared = 65, Jared to Enoch = 162, Enoch to Methusalah = 65, Methusalah to Lamech = 187, Lamech to Noah = 182, Noah to Flood = 600, (See Genesis 5, Genesis 7:11, and Genesis 8:13).  Since there are 1656 years and 10 generations, we would add 10 accession years between the creation and the beginning of the flood, that places the start of the flood in a Sabbatical year (a year 49).

Just Do the Math. . .

1666 ÷ 49 = 34

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 35

Since the flood lasted one year, you would add that additional year to 1666 and the total comes to 1667 years to the end of the flood, which would be a year of Jubilee based on 49 year cycles starting from Creation.

 Just Do the Math. . .

1666 + 1 = 1667

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 42

As we have previously noted, the flood started after 1666 years from creation (a 49th year), which is a year before a Jubilee (a 50th year).  After the flood they changed over to the standard accession year dating method.  We know this because the numbers line up correctly when no adjustment years are added.  This is the typical inclusive reckoning which is so common to the Bible.  When we consider the genealogies of the descendants of Shem after the flood, we will be able to calculate the time that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed.  The flood lasted one year and ended on a year of Jubilee in the year 1667 CD.  There are exactly 8 Jubilee cycles (49 year cycles) between the start of the flood and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which also takes place in a 49th year.

If the year when the flood ended was a Jubilee year, then the standard calculation of lifespans from the end of the flood to the birth of Isaac will yield another amazing alignment with the Jubilee cycles. The texts and the numbers which they mention are found here:

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 46

If the birth of Isaac takes place on a year of Jubilee, then we can continue our calculations to reveal another amazing alignment.  Between the birth of Isaac and the end of the seven years of famine in Egypt contains exactly 4 Jubilee cycles. The texts and the numbers which they mention are found here:

There are 60 years from the birth of Isaac to the birth of Jacob.  There are 130 years from the birth of Jacob to the 2nd year of the 7 year famine.  Add 5 more years to cover all of the 7 years of famine.  Since the 7 year famine would be expected to cover a full sabbatical cycle, and the Jubilee year should follow it, it is then simply a matter of adding one more year to the total to include that next year of Jubilee in the count.  The total comes to 196 years, which is 4 complete 49 year Jubilee cycles.  But just to make sure that the reader fully understands how all of this works, I have recently completed a chart showing exactly how these 4 Jubilee cycles line up with the Genesis record, Chart of Sabbatical Years from Isaac to End of Seven Years Famine in Egypt.
 

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 53

Exodus 12:40-41 states that the children of Israel "sojourned" for 430 years prior to the date of the Exodus. Some ancient texts even plainly state that the 430 years applies to the stay of Israel in both the land of Egypt and Canaan: “The Samaritan Pentateuch and the Septuagint add the words ‘and in the land of Canaan’ after ‘Egypt.’” (The Hebrew/Greek Key Study Bible, World Bible Publishers, p. 95.) If this is true, then this would have to be 430 years in which the children of Israel live including the date of the birth of their father, Jacob, later named Israel.  The 430 years would, under this model, begin with the birth of Israel (Jacob) himself!!  So, if we take the 430 years to indicate the actual lifespan of Jacob (later named Israel, whose children were vicariously present within his “loins”), then by starting the calculation of the 430 years at this date it brings us to the Exodus in the year of Jubilee!! 2119 CD + 430 = 2549 CD, or 1437/36 BCE!!  We have conclusive evidence that the Exodus had to have taken place sometime during the 18th Egyptian dynasty, between 1500 and 1400 BCE--which also fits with our chronology. Jacob was born 60 years after Isaac (Genesis 25:26), who we have already determined was born on a year of Jubilee. Having determined this we can now also find another important alignment. The elapsed time between the birth of Isaac and the Exodus is exactly 10 Jubilees in length.  This means the Exodus actually took place in a year of Jubilee.

Just Do the Math. . .

60 + 430 = 490

 

490 ÷ 49 = 10

I have recently completed another chart showing a more detailed and updated chronology and explanation which covers other related issues, such as the 40 years of wandering in the wilderness, the age of Moses and Aaron, and the command to initiate the start of Sabbatical and Jubilee years (Leviticus 25).  It is called  How Long Did the Children of Israel Wander in the Wilderness?

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 52

Some commentators are of the belief that (based upon the varied nature of the 10 plagues on Egypt), those plagues may have extended over a period of about a year.  Therefore, since we have already determined the Exodus took place in a year of Jubilee, it is very likely that the plagues began a year before in the 49th year, just as the flood began in the 49th year and just as Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed in the 49th year.

  Just Do the Math. . .

2549 - 1 = 2548

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 73

The decree of Artaxerxes is put into affect by Ezra as he enters into the land of Israel and begins to establish the rule of law in Jerusalem as it is also in the process of being rebuilt. 

Maimonides said that Ezra went up to the land of Israel and that such an event was called “the second entrance into the Promised Land" in which they "began a new count and declared the thirteenth year after the building of the Second Temple a Sabbatical year." (Sabbatical and Jubilee Years, chapter 10, paragraph 3.) Historically, the Jews have tended to believe that the entrance into the promised land came in a year of Jubilee. The alignment of the chronology of Seder Olam supports that view as well. While Scripture does not definitively state the idea that Israel’s entrance into the promised land actually took place in a year of Jubilee, the point is that this is what they typically believed (including Maimonides). Therefore, his statement is very interesting for us—as it becomes another testimony to the accuracy of 457 being a year of Jubilee and the fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel 9. Maimonides was wrong about the chronology of Israel, and the year that the Second Temple was built. But the key point for us to consider (that we can agree on, based upon our prior historical analysis) is that he essentially declared Ezra went into the land at the start of a Jubilee year. Ezra is known to have come into the land of Israel in the seventh year of Artaxerxes. It was (based upon our investigation) right at the start of a year of Jubilee. The 70 weeks prophecy was clearly a reference to 70 Sabbatical cycles, which would end in the 70th week with the coming of the Messiah. Evidently, Maimonides count to the next Sabbatical year (from the 7th year after the temple being finished to the 13th year) is a perfect fit! Remember, he also states that the count had been renewed. Obviously, he could only be referring to the count to the next Jubilee year—since that was the only significant count which needed to be renewed!! Since we know that the spring of 457 BCE was the time the decree was given, and 4 months latter in the fall of 457 BCE Ezra came into the land of Israel to carry out the dictates of that decree, we know that this is also (according to Maimonides) the first year of the count (which would also be a year of Jubilee). 457 BCE is plainly documented in chapter 7 of my book Discovering the Jewish Messiah to be the 7th year of Artaxerxes, the year the decree to rebuild and restore Jerusalem was given for Ezra to carry out 4 months later in the fall of that year.  Please see also my documentation of this in The Most Crucial Key to Determine Jubilee Years.

Can we 'do the math' here?  Well, there is really no need to do any math here because it is solidly documented that 457 BCE is the actual year this took place.  By concluding that this is also a year of Jubilee, we can use this year as our hinge pin to establish all other Jubilee years (whether going backwards or forwards in time from that date).  We will later see another hinge pin that will act as a second witness to this being a year of Jubilee.

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 82

According to Daniel 9:24, the Messiah was to come and confirm the covenant for one week (the 70th week of the 70 week prophecy).  We have already determined the starting date of that prophecy as 457 BCE.  69 X 7 = 483, which, when added to the 457 BCE date brings us to the year 27 CE.  That year is well known to be the "the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar," (Luke 3:1-6) which is the year that Yahushua (short form Yahshua) was baptized and began his ministry.  3 1/2 years later, he was crucified (on a Wednesday in the spring of 31 CE) which is exactly in the midst of the week, and the midst of the seventh Sabbatical week leading up to the year of Jubilee.  It all lines up perfectly with the prophecy of Daniel 9 and the Jubilee Calendar!

Just Do the Math. . .

70 X 7 = 490

3529 (457 BCE) + 490 = 4019 CD

4019 - 7 = 4012 CD

(4012 CD is equal to 27/28 CE)

 

[When calculating dates that cross over from BCE to CE,

you have to subtract 1 to make up for the lack of a "zero year"]

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 85

According to Jerome’s compilation of the Chronican of Eusebius, the Bar Kochba revolt began in the 16th year of Emperor Hadrian. The most likely way this event was dated is by the Roman method of counting the years which begins in August. Using this method, the 16th year of Hadrian would have begun in August of 132. (Die Chronik des Hieronymous. In Die griechischen christlichen Schriftsteller der ersten Jahrhunderte, Eusebius VII, by Rudolf Helm, Akademie-Verlag, Berlin, 1984.) The exact date it began is uncertain, but that revolt was in full bloom by the spring of 133 CE. We know this because of a document from that period which identified the first year of the revolt. It says: 'On the first of Iyyar, Year 1 of the redemption of Israel by Simeon Bar Kosiba, prince of Israel.' (Israel Exploration Journal, Kanael B., “Notes on the Dates Used During the Bar Kokhba Revolt,” 1971, p. 41.) Iyyar is the month which corresponds to April/May. The phrase “Year 1 of the redemption” is a significant clue which clearly indicates a Jubilee Year. The dating of events from “Year 1 of the redemption” clearly places that year in a year of Jubilee. The Jews typically were expecting the Messiah to come in a year of Jubilee--which is in contrast to the actual Messiah, who came at the start of the last Sabbatical week before a year of Jubilee, and was crucified in "the midst of the week." (Daniel 9:25-27)  While the revolt of Bar Kochba did not officially begin until the Spring of 133 CE, unofficially it probably had already begun some months earlier, late in the year 132 CE. Therefore, it started within the year 132/33 of the Fall-to-Fall Jewish civil calendar. See Wikepedia article on Simon Bar Kokhba, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_bar_Kokhba

The start of the Bar Kokba revolt (in 132/33 BCE) is another hinge pin and is our second witness to the year of Jubilee, and lines up perfectly with 457/56 BCE as another Jubilee year (based upon 49 year cycles).  All of this is documented in chapter 10 of my book Discovering the Jewish Messiah.  Sabbatical years can also be documented, from 312 BCE to 139 CE.  Please go to the Sabbatical year chart for more information and documentation regarding that aspect of the Jubilee cycles.

Once again, there is no need to do any 'math' here.  It is solidly documented that 133 CE is the start of the Bar Kokba revolt.

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 121

Like the famine in ancient Egypt (which lasted seven years, and was aligned with the last seven years of Jubilee Cycle 46), the duration of WWII (as it was later called) extended from the beginning of the last sabbatical week and ended seven years later with the use of the atomic bomb in Japan to end the war.  That bomb was used in war only a few weeks before the start of another Jubilee year (according to the evidence which I have compiled), and the date of the actual first test of that weapon is very significant (July 16, 1945).  (See Trinity Test http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_(nuclear_test) By projecting the Jubilee cycles into the future from the time of Ezra we can see that major events do indeed fall into perfect alignment with the Jubilee cycles.

The First Test of an Atomic Bomb took place at the Trinity test site in New Mexico, on July 16, 1945.

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 122

Soon after the end of WWII, the nations of the world got together to form a new alliance, with the hope of someday establishing a New World Order.  The organization which they created is called the United Nations.  It was formed in a year of Jubilee.  Remember, the first test of an atomic bomb took place just weeks before that year of Jubilee.  Now fast forward 49 years. Exactly 49 years to the very day after the atom bomb was first tested at the Trinity test site in New Mexico (July 16, 1945), comet Shoemaker-Levy struck Jupiter a reported 21 times over a period of 6 or 7 days (from July 16 to 22, 1994), only 50 days away from the start of another year of Jubilee.  These were the greatest explosions ever seen in modern times, each with the capacity to destroy our own planet if they had taken place here.  (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet_Shoemaker_Levy).  Oddly, I am not the only one to recognize this comet sign as being a sign of the end:  Please see coicesforliving.com, and theopenscroll.com.  Time Magazine put it this way: "A shattered comet is about to hit Jupiter, creating the biggest explosion ever witnessed in the solar system. Could it happen here on Earth? Yes..." (Reston, James, Jr., "Collision Course", Time Magazine, Vol. 143, No. 21, May 23, 1994, pages 54-61.)

Was it a sign from Yahweh?  What if the 21 strikes of the comet represent 21 years?  If they do represent years, then what are the odds that such an event would line up perfectly with the Jubilee Calendar, such that these signs all point to the year 2015?  There is much more evidence to confirm this timeline as it lines up with this comet and other major eclipses in a chapter of my unpublished book, The Jubilee Code.  You can read it right now from this website.  The chapter is called Comets and Eclipses:  Signs of the End.

21 strikes from comet Shoemaker Levy crashed into Jupiter over a period of 6 or 7 days, starting on July 16, 1994.

 It began on the 9th of Av and it happened 49 years to the very day after the first ever historical test of an atomic bomb at the Trinity test site in New Mexico.  Is this a cosmic "21 gun salute" from the Creator?  Is this Yahweh's warning that we have 21 years from that date to prepare for judgment?

Jubilee Calendar - Cycle 123

This is where we are now.  The Oklahoma city bombing took place in a Jubilee year with 168 dead (double the number from the same date two years prior at Waco), and the twin towers were bombed in the next Sabbatical year (2000/2001).  The year 5999 (2014/15) seems to be the year to watch what is happening in the world very closely, as that is the year that the comet (and other signs) point to as a very significant year.  5999 CD is 21 years following the 21 strikes of comet Shoemaker-Levy, and 70 years following the establishment of the United Nations.

In 2004 and 2008 the greatest modern series of catastrophic natural disasters took place in Asia--a tsunamis in Indonesia (2004) and a cyclone in Burma and earthquake in China (2008).  Please notice that both of these series of events took the lives of over 200 thousand people, and they both "line up" on the calendar along 3 1/2 and 7 year intervals in the calendar.  Even now we are feeling the affects of the start of this last sabbatical week before the year 6000, for from the fall of this year (late September, 2008) stock markets around the world have plummeted nearly 40% (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_financial_crisis_of_2008).  While we cannot be absolutely certain, it is very plausible that major catastrophic events will continue to occur at regular 3 1/2 and 7 year intervals.  That means we can expect very significant events to take place starting from the fall of 2011 to the fall of 2012 and also from the fall of 2014 to the fall of 2015. Of course, it is almost certain that the most profound life changing events will take place from 2015 to 2016 CE.  Would that mean it is the end of the world?  Well, let's just say it could be the end of the world as we know it.

  Just Do the Math. . .

1994 + 21 = 2015 CE or

5999 CD (Creation Date)

When our Messiah comes he will put an end to this vain attempt to unite the world under a man-made, despotic, New World Order, and in its place will establish his righteous dominion in Israel, with Jerusalem as its capital--and, in a sense, the capital of the world.  Many people all over the world will loose their lives, the nations of the world will fall, most of the land will become desolate and almost uninhabitable, and the few who survive of the nations will be forced to revert back to a more primitive form of existence.  Many from the remnant of the nations will come to realize that they must look to Jerusalem for salvation.  It is during this 1000 year period that the scattered and destitute survivors will seek after Yahweh through his chosen people (Israel) for wisdom, guidance, and understanding, during that great time of uncertainty.
