THE NEW TESTAMENT SABBATH

Excerpt from Book # A10, Chapter 17

Lev 25:9-10

What is the great significance of the New Testament Sabbath?

To understand the wonder Jesus proclaimed when He said that the Sabbath was for the man, we must see that it points to that jubilee spoken of in LEV 25:9-10. "Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the Day of Atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family."

The jubilee stands for the proclaiming of liberty of those Jews who had sold themselves to be servants. In the jubilee they were to be set free.

The jubilee points to the resurrection of Christ. When Christ came out of the grave, the great jubilee was proclaimed. All God’s dear children who had been sold in Adam as servants of sin were set free. Where? They were set free in the resurrection of Christ. They were delivered from all that servitude of sin; this is what we see in the Sabbath. It is a day for us to be set free from all the secular things of the world. The Sabbath is our free day to serve the Lord.

This is where the New Testament Sabbath was changed to the first day of the week. Let’s look at how the jubilee points to the New Testament Sabbath. LEV 25:8 says, "And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years." Every seventh year was a Sabbath year. Seven means full. Every seventh year would be a Sabbath for forty-nine years.

The atonement was made on the forty-ninth year.

Then the fiftieth year, i.e., two Sabbaths in a row, points to the great jubilee after the atonement, or the resurrection of Christ. These two Sabbaths, one after the other, made the transition from the Old Testament Sabbath to the New Testament Sabbath on the first day of the week.

The forty-ninth year was the year of atonement. The fiftieth year was the year of the jubilee. Christ was crucified, and He laid in the grave over the Old Testament Sabbath. On the first day of the week was the great jubilee.

Now the New Testament Sabbath points to this jubilee and the setting free of His church. He gained victory over death and the grave. He was brought up out of the grave, and He brought forth the jubilee demonstrated in the Old Testament. This is the transition from the seventh day to the first day of the week.

The fiftieth year was the second Sabbath in a row; it points to the jubilee or the resurrection of Christ. There were two Sabbaths, one right behind the other. The atonement was on the forty-ninth, and the jubilee was on the fiftieth.

The Lord will always bestow honor upon His own institutions. Before the atonement it was Jesus’ custom to honor the seventh day with His presence. He went to the temple on the seventh day. LUK 4:16 says, "And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read." His custom was to come into the synagogue on the seventh day of the week. This was the Old Testament Sabbath. That was His custom up to the time of His atonement. He honors His own institutions with His presence; after the atonement, He honoured the first day of the week as the New Testament Sabbath.

Scripture is void of any reference to Jesus honoring the seventh day with His presence after His resurrection. After His resurrection, there is no place in Scripture where the Lord Jesus Christ followed His custom of going into the synagogue on the seventh day.

After Christ’s resurrection He honored the first day of the week with His presence. Let’s observe how this carried through. MAR 16:9 says, "Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils." He not only arose, but also made His appearance on the first day.

Jesus appeared to the two on the way to Emmaus on the first day of the week. LUK 24:13-15 says, "And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them."

Christ appeared to His disciples on the first day of the week. JOH 20:19 says, "Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you." The Lord Jesus is now honoring the first day of the week with His presence.

Sometimes I struggle and labor all week long. I labour in prayer and study the Word, and then the Lord honors His institution. In the house of prayer on His day, all is made plain. He honors His holy day with His presence.

The disciples gathered on the first day of the week after the day of Pentecost. ACT 20:7 says, "And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight." The New Testament church came together on the first day of the week.

The apostle Paul spoke of the gathering of the New Testament church on the first day of the week in 1CO 16:1, "Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come."

The Lord gave special honor to the first day of the week by fulfilling "that which was spoken by the prophet Joel," ACT 2:16, sending the promise of the Father on the day of Pentecost, V:33. On the first day of the week, the Lord sent His Spirit. This is most significant! He honored the first day of the week being the day of Pentecost.

If the Lord was still retaining the old seventh day Sabbath, He would have sent the Holy Spirit on the seventh day. He honored His day by sending the Holy Spirit on the first day. ACT 2:32-33 says, "This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear." That was on the first day of the week.

The New Testament Sabbath remains to be the emblem of our eternal rest. The word rest in HEB 4:9 is taken from the Greek word sabbatismose, which means: "The repose of Christianity as a type of heaven: The sabbath, or day of weekly repose from secular avocations."

In HEB 4:9-11 we read, "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief."

Amen.

The three main feast days of Israel are each associated with a different harvest.  The barley ripens first around the time of Passover; the wheat ripens next around the time of Pentecost; and the grapes ripen last in the fall around the time of Tabernacles.

These three crops depict three classes of people.  The barley represents the overcomers; the wheat represents the rest of the believers; and the grapes represent the unbelievers.

The Barley Wave-Sheaf Offering

The wave-sheaf offering shortly after Passover was the firstfruits of the ripened barley that the priest offered to God in the early Spring.  It was always waved “on the morrow OF (NOT “after”) the Sabbath” at Passover (Lev 23:10-14).  This day is sometimes called the Feast of Firstfruits.  The Ascension of Jesus “on the morrow OF the Sabbath” is symbolized by the wave-sheaf offering. 

Seventh-day Sabbaths, AND Feast Day “Sabbaths” such as Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles, began at sundown the evening before.  Jesus was crucified on Friday.  He died at 3:00 P.M. and His body was taken down off the Cross and placed into the tomb BEFORE sundown.  Sundown was the beginning of the Seventh-Day Sabbath, The Lord’s Day (Mark 2:28).

The “morrow OF the Sabbath” was the continuation of the Sabbath (that began on Friday night at sundown) meant the actual full day of the Seventh-day Sabbath, what we now term Saturday. 

The women came to the tomb on the morning OF the Sabbath (sabbaton – Sabbath - Saturday) and the tomb was already empty!  (See literal translation of these resurrection texts in “Was Jesus Really Resurrected on Sunday?” at www.goodnewsaboutgod.com)  Jesus had already been resurrected.  He then appeared to Mary Magdalene in the area of the Garden Tomb on Sabbath (Saturday) morning, just before He was to ascend to His Father.  For Jesus told Mary Magdalene, “Do not detain Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father.” (John 20:17)

Barley was the first crop to ripen in the Spring in Canaan and Egypt.  In fact, the Hebrew month of Abib (“green ears”) has direct reference to the ripening of barley in that month.

The 7th plague was that of hail, which destroyed the barley and flax, but not the wheat and rye.  (This took place just prior to the Passover, which was the 10th plague.)  We read about the effects of the hail upon the barley in Egypt in Exodus 9:31,32.

And the flax and the barley were smitten, for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was boiled.  But the wheat and rye were not smitten; for they were not grown up.

Overcomers are referred to as “Barley”

The three feasts of Israel, Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles represent the three stages of salvation from justification to sanctification to glorification.

They also appear to reveal the nature and scope of the resurrections from the dead.  “Each crop represents a different class of people.  The barley, which ripens first, represents the overcomers of the first resurrection; the wheat, which ripens at Pentecost, represents the rest of the believers in general; and the grapes, which are trodden down at the end of the growing season, represent the unbelievers who are judged according to their works.”  The Barley Overcomers, by Stephen Jones, pg 10.

The Value of Barley

The first Scripture relevant to any study of barley is Leviticus 27:16.  It reads,

            “. . . an homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.”

This is the value of barley in the eyes of God.  Fifty is the number of Pentecost and Jubilee.  Pentecost was to be celebrated on the 50th day; Jubilee in the 50th year.  Both are revelations of the outpouring of the Spirit of God.  Pentecost is the time when the earnest of the Spirit was poured out (Eph 1:14; 2 Cor 1:22 and 5:5).  The Jubilee signifies a greater outpouring, that is, the fullness of the Spirit. 

Thus, while Pentecost is a down payment of a Jubilee, or the promise of a Jubilee, both are depicted by the number 50.  The barley is valued at 50 shekels of silver, and this associates the barley with the outpouring of the Spirit, both in its earnest and its fullness.

This is consistent with the revelation of the overcomers who attain to the firsts resurrection; or, if they are alive at the end of the age, their “change” (transfiguration) without dying.  It is also consistent with the revelation of the “unleavened bread” at Passover and the flax (white linen – of righteousness) ripening at the same time, which is used in the priestly garments.  All of these details point to the fact that the barley company is raised first among God’s creatures.  James 1:18 says,

Of His own will begat He us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures (“creation”).

In the book of Revelation, we are told of the 144,000 who sing a new song before the throne of God.  In Rev. 14:4, these are called “the Firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb”.  Firstfruits imply that a greater harvest is yet to come.”  Ibid. pg 11

Gideon; the Cake of Barley

Israel had been forced to pay tribute to the Midianites for 7 years.  When Israel finally repented and cried out to God for deliverance, God commissioned Gideon as a judge, or deliverer, to save Israel.  (Judges 6:8-10)

When Gideon finally mustered his army of 300 against the host of the Midianites, he wanted confirmation that this was not just his own carnal plan.  After all, the situation seemed hopeless.  So God told him to spy out the enemy camp to receive his confirmation.  Judges 7:13,13 says,

And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along.

And his fellow answered and said, this is nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel; for into his hand hath God delivered Midian and all the host.

Thus, Gideon and his army represent the barley company, the overcomers who will inherit the promise of God at the end of this present age.  The manner in which Gideon’s army defeated the enemy tells us how the overcomers of today will receive the promise.

Each of the men in Gideon’s army was given a trumpet and a torch inside an earthen jar, or pitcher.  With little oxygen in the jar, the torches could only glow.  At the signal, they blew their trumpets and broke the jars, holding up the torches in the air, causing them to burst into flames.

The trumpet signifies the first resurrection of the dead at the Feast of Trumpets.  The torches within the pitchers signify the presence of God in our bodies, which are the earthen vessels.  At the appointed time, after blowing the trumpet for the first resurrection, these bodies of death will be broken, and the glory of God will burst into view, even as Jesus was transfigured before His disciples.

When Paul was expounding upon the transfiguration of Moses (2 Cor 3 & 4), he made reference to this battle of Gideon by saying in 2 Cor 4:6,7:

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Elisha Overcomes Death with Barley

Barley is a hardy plant that can withstand drought and extreme heat and cold.  So when the Scriptures talk of grain or meal in time of drought, it generally refers to barley, for wheat cannot grow under such severe conditions.  In this way barley is a very good symbol of the overcomer, who will flourish in “times of drought” in between revivals when the Spirit of God does not appear to be moving.

In contrast, the wheat company languishes when God seems to hide His face for a time.  Like Israel under Moses, they tested God by saying, “Is the Lord among us or not?” (Ex 17:7)  They do not understand that our faith is not tested while God is moving miraculously, but in those times when He is silent.  Thus, in the time of drought, the wheat dies.

There was a drought in the days of Elisha that teaches us more about the spiritual principles of barley.  2 Kings 4:38-41 says,

And Elisha came again to Gilgal; and there was a dearth (drought) in the land; and the sons of the prophets were sitting before him; and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot and seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets.

And one went out into the field to gather herbs and found a wild vine and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full and came and shred them into the pot of pottage; for they knew them not.

So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out and said, O thou man of God, there is DEATH in the pot.  And they could not eat thereof.

But He said, Then bring MEAL.  And he (Elisha) cast it into the pot, and he said, Pour out for the people that they may eat.  And he cast it into the pot, and he said, Pour out for the people that they may eat.  And there was no harm in the pot.

Since this event occurred in a time of drought, the “meal” which they used was no doubt BARLEY.  (Wheat cannot withstand drought.)  And so the barley was used to overcome death.  It pictures resurrection of the dead.

Jesus Feeds the Multitude with Barley

In John, Chapter 6, Jesus fed the multitude with “five barley loaves and two small fishes.”  (John 6:9)

Vs 12  When they were filled, He said unto His disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost!

Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves that remained over and above them that had eaten.

The overcomers will inherit the first resurrection.  But first, they are the barley bread in Jesus’ hands that must be broken to feed the multitude.  It is not time to be victorious yet.  It is the time to die.  It is not yet time to enjoy a good reputation among the brethren, but to be made “of no reputation”  (Phil 2:7), following the path Jesus trod. 

The barley call is not only a call to righteousness, but to brokenness.  It is not a call, as yet, to victory, but to the despair of death.  It is not a call to the throne, but to the dungeon and the wilderness.  And when all self-righteousness is gone, when all impatience has run its course, then is death conquered by Life!

IMPRESIONANTE CONEXION 11 DE SEPTIEMBRE DEL 2001, 11 DE MARZO DEL 2004 Y 7 DE JULIO DEL 2004 CON EL 22 DE DICIEMBRE DEL 2012

Hay una impresionante interrelacion KAVALISTICA DEL 911 con el SALMO 119 y obviamente con la INDEPENDENCIA DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS. Entre el 11 de Septiembre del 2001 hasta el 11 de Marzo del 2004 tenemos exactamente 911 (anagrama de 119) dias y desde el 11 de Marzo 2004 hasta el 7 de Julio (LONDRES 2004) tenemos nuevamente el numero 119 interrelacionado con los dias. Si sumamos 911+119, osea 1030, tenemos la cantidad de dias en el PERIODO 11/9/2001 hasta el 7/7/2004. Si multiplicamos este ultimo numero por la cifra de 4 tenemos 4120 dias que es la CANTIDAD DE DIAS QUE HAY ENTRE EL 11 DE SEPTIEMBRE DEL 2001 HASTA EL 22/12/2012. AMIGO, KAVALISTICAMENTE, HAY UNA INTERRELACION MATEMATICA, INSISTO, ENTRE EL 911 CON EL FIN DEL CALENDARIO MAYA EN FUNCION AL SALMO 119 MUY INTERRELACIONADO CON LA INDEPENDENCIA DE LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS, QUE ES EL SALMO MAS LARGO DE LA TORA, EL SALMO DE LA LEY. CUANDO NUESTRO SEÑOR JESUCRISTO EXPRESO EN JUAN 8:32 "QUE LA VERDAD OS HARA LIBRE", JUSTAMENTE ESTABA EXPRESANDO ESTE MISMO SALMO QUE TIENE UN FUERTE NEXO con el NUMERO 8 en funcion a que el mismo esta en funcion a las 22 letras hebrea. ESTE SALMO CONTIENE 22X8=176 VERSICULOS. OBSERVEN LAS MATEMATICAS

 EL NOMBRE JESUS, EN EL CONTEXTO AL NUMERO 8, es una REFERENCIA A LA CIRCUNCISION DE CRISTO Y UN OBVIO NEXO CON LA RESURRECCION EN SU CONTEXTO A SU PRIMERA APARICION A SU ESPOSA, NUESTRA MADRE, MARIA MAGDALENA. ESE ES EL SECRETO DETRAS DEL DOMINGO CATOLICO (PRIMER Y OCTAVO DIA). EL OCHO TAMBIEN ES UNA REFERENCIA AL JUBILEO (SIETE AÑOS SABATICOS Y EL OCTAVO QUE EN TOTAL TAMBIEN SUMAN OCHO).
LOS ESTADOS UNIDOS, EN EL CONTEXTO A SU INTERRELACION CON EL NUMERO 50, EN FUNCION A LA CANTIDAD DE ESTADOS QUE TIENE e incluso a su fuerte nexo KAVALISTICO CON EL OCHO y con el 119 es ALTAMENTE PROBABLE QUE SE HAYAN INDEPENDIZADO EN JUBILEO. ESTE ES EL SECRETO ESOTERICO DEL PORQUE LOS EEUU SON EL ESTADO QUE TIENE MAS NEXO CON LA LIBERTAD. USTED NAVEGUE EN INTERNET Y NO HAY NACION ADONDE HAYA MAS MATERIAL DE TEOLOGIA RADICAL QUE LOS EEUU, nos guste o no nos guste. LOS YANQUIS TIENEN MUCHOS DEFECTOS PERO NO HAY DUDAS QUE ES EL PAIS ADONDE EXISTE MAS LIBERTAD Y PROSPERIDAD EN EL MUNDO. CREO QUE ES POR ESO EL NEXO TEOLOGICO DEL JUBILEO (LEVITICO 25) CON LA INDEPENDENCIA DE EEUU. EN MATERIAL DEL GRIAL Y POR EJEMPLO Y DEL VERDADERO CALENDARIO LUNI-SOLAR HEBREO, NO HAY MATERIAL FUERA DE LOS YANQUIS. LA POBREZA EN NUESTROS PAISES LATINOAMERICANOS es en parte POR NUESTRA FALTA DE LIBERTAD. VIVIMOS EN EL MEDIO EVO TODAVIA Y ES POR ESO QUE TENEMOS SEÑORES FEUDALES. EL PROBLEMA LATINO ES QUE NOSOTROS MISMOS NO QUEREMOS VIVIR EN LIBERTAD. DEJEMOS DE BUSCAR SIEMPRE CULPABLES EXTERNOS Y EMPEZEMOS A MIRARNOS A NOSOTROS MISMOS. Volviendo con el 911 y su conexion con LONDRES, en contexto al numero 1030, tenemos un NEXO CON EL NUMERO 77 en funcion a la diferencia 180-77=103. La interrelacion WASHINGTON, PENTAGONO CON EL NUMERO 77 ESCONDE SECRETAMENTE ESTE MENSAJE. EL 5 ES EL NUMERO DE LA ALQUIMIA (CUADRATURA DEL CIRCULO=SANTO GRIAL).

EN APOCALIPSIS JUSTAMENE SE INTERRELACIONA A FILADELFIA CON LA "LLAVE DE DAVID". EN EL SANTORAL CATOLICO, BETZABE, LA MADRE DE SALOMON Y ESPOSA DE DAVID, EL 4 DE JULIO ES SU DIA. ESTO EXPLICA TAMBIEN INCLUSO EL FUERTE NEXO INDEPENDENCIA DE EEUU CON FILADELFIA/PHILADELPHIA. EL VATICANO MISMO ESTA DISEÑADO EN FUNCION A LA LLAVE DE DAVID E INCLUSO A LAS PLEYADES POR SUS SIETE COLINAS.
EL MENSAJE ES OBVIO, EN TODO ESTE CONTEXTO, QUE LA REFERENCIA ES EL SANTO GRIAL, OSEA EL LINAJE DE NUESTRO SEÑOR JESUCRISTO Y NUESTRA SEÑORA MADRE MARIA MAGDALENA. EN LA RESURRECCION DE NUESTRO SEÑOR, JUSTAMENTE EL MENSAJE EN EL CONTEXTO AL NUMERO 8, ES UN OBVIO NEXO CON EL NUEVO JARDIN DEL EDEN. Esto explica del porque el NEXO DE APOCALIPSIS 1:10 "DIA DEL SEÑOR" con JUAN 20 "RESURRECCION DE CRISTO". ES UN OBVIO NEXO CON EL JUBILEO y es por eso que aparecen las trompetas en APOCALIPSIS 1:10 E incluso con el SALMO 119 CUANDO NUESTRO SEÑOR AFIRMA SER EL ALFA Y EL OMEGA.

Jubilee and the Sabbath Year

Not only is there a weekly Sabbath, there is an annual Sabbath every seven years, and every fifty years there is a Jubilee Sabbath. Let us take a look at the Jubilee and Sabbatical Years.

Land Sabbath Law Similar to the Weekly Sabbath

In Exodus 23:10-12, we are told that the purpose of the seventh year is so that the poor and the animals shall eat. This applies also to the vineyard and olive trees. The law has no limit to a specific time or a specific land. It is not limited to Palestine. The Land Sabbath Law would be in force along with the weekly Sabbath.

Fruit Trees Have Slightly

Different Statutes

Leviticus 19:23-25

shows that the first three year's fruit shall be considered "uncircumcised," and not eaten. The fruit of the fourth year is all holy to the Eternal. You may eat the fruit in the fifth year.

The

Land Must Keep a Sabbath

Leviticus 25:1-7

describes the Land Sabbath. Sowing is not permitted in the seventh year, neither is pruning of the vineyard. You cannot reap nor gather to store up that which grows of itself. Yet you can consume fresh anything that grows of itself for the Sabbath of the land shall be meat for you, your servants, the stranger and the beasts and cattle. It is a year of rest for the land (not for you).

If we observe the seventh year, God promises we will dwell in the land safely, and have plenty of food to eat, Leviticus 25:18-19. God promises a blessing in the sixth year, Leviticus 25:20-22.

Seventh Year Also Called

"Year of Release"

In Deuteronomy 15:1-18, the seventh year is called the LORD'S release, and all debts are to be forgiven. The reason for this law is to relieve the poor.

Exodus 21:1-6

describes how Hebrew servants were to be released in the seventh year, unless they voluntarily desired to be lifelong servants.

Deuteronomy 31:9-13

says that the Law is to be read at the end of the seventh year, at the Feast of Tabernacles. This would ensure that former debtors and servants were properly taught God's Law so they might not have to become poor again.

The Fiftieth Year is the Jubilee

Leviticus 25:8-55

describes the fiftieth, or Jubilee, year. "Jubilee" means "liberty." God owns the land, and in the Jubilee, He wants the return of every man to his possession. The land must be redeemed. Men must be returned to their land, their family. Beginning on the Day of Atonement with the sound of a trumpet, the Jubilee is a "holy" year, verse 12. Leviticus 27:14-34 describes the redemption of gifts and tithes, which are calculated based on the number of years to Jubilee.

Numbers 36:1-9

says that the purpose of Jubilee is to keep the inheritances separate, preventing dispossession.

Ezekiel 46:16-18

states that even the prince of Israel is not to dispossess people of their inheritance. Gifts from the prince shall revert back to the family of the prince at the year of liberty.

Why Did Israel Go Into Captivity?

Leviticus 26:23-24, 32-35, 43

tell us plainly that one of the main reasons Israel went into captivity was for not letting the land rest.

Jeremiah 34:8-17

informs us that because Israel reneged and did not free their Hebrew servants, God would proclaim "liberty" unto these cruel taskmasters to the sword, pestilence, famine and captivity.

II Chronicles 36:14-21

describes how Judah mocked God's prophets and so were carried away captive to Babylon, until the land had enjoyed her Sabbaths. Israel rested seventy years before the Jews returned from captivity.

The Ministry of Jesus Christ

and Jubilee

Isaiah 61:1-11

compares the Millennium with the Sabbatical or Jubilee years. See also Isaiah 58:6. In Luke 4:16-21, the Savior began His ministry by preaching a "Jubilee" message. Although some have erroneously said that this sermon was on Pentecost as claimed by proponents of the "Sabbaton Theory," the Jubilee message, and not a Pentecost message, was clearly given. Since Jubilee began on the Day of Atonement, it is most likely the Sabbath on which this message was given, was Atonement, and not Pentecost. True liberty can only be had by accepting our Savior as Master and Lord. Since it is likely that Jesus gave this sermon in A.D. 27 some have concluded thereby that A.D. 27 was a Jubilee year.

A Sign of Modern Israel

Cast in the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia is a part of the Jubilee call: " . . . Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof." On July 8th, 1776, the bell rang out summoning the people to hear the reading of the Declaration of Independence. Our nation did not obey the Law of Jubilee, and about fifty years after the War of Independence, the bell cracked and has not been rung since! Periodic depressions have occurred about every fifty years -- from The Digest of Divine Law, pages 109-110.

Josephus Mentions Sabbatical Year and Jubilee

In Josephus' book, Antiquities of the Jews, 3:12:3, he describes Biblical laws relative to the Sabbatical year and Jubilee. Antiochus besieged Judas Maccabeus and the Temple during a Sabbatical year, 12:9:5. During the war between Ptolomy and Hyercanus, it was a sabbatical year, 13:8:1. Taxes were not paid to Caesar during the seventh year, 14:10:6. In 15:1:2, Josephus says when Herod the Great plundered the wealthy and even robbed the dead for silver and gold to give to Anthony, that it was a Sabbatical year. In the thirteenth year of Herod the Great, there was a great famine and pestilence (15:9:1). In Whiston's footnotes to Josephus, he says this famine was worse than the famine of the days of Ahab, and even worse than the days of Jacob, and that this was a Sabbatical or Jubilee year.

Meaning of Sabbatical and Jubilee Year

The significance of the Sabbatical and Jubilee year is not limited to the rest of the land and rejuvenation of the soil. It is to remind us, as does the weekly Sabbath, that the Eternal is the Creator. Just as it took faith for Israelites not to farm on the Sabbatical and Jubilee years, so today it takes faith to trust Him for sustenance. Man is not the sole owner of the soil, and he does not hold property in perpetuity but only under the Almighty's trust, Leviticus 25:23. We own nothing by inherent right, for like the children of Israel, we were slaves in spiritual "Egypt," Deuteronomy 15:15. Out of gratitude to the Eternal for our liberation, we must extend liberty to our debtors and servants.

The word translated "release" in Deuteronomy 15:1 can also mean "dropping." The seventh year is a year of dropping, or cancellation, of debts. What better time than the seventh year to settle old scores with people, to "bury the hatchet." We were on spiritual death row, waiting for execution in the lake of fire. Then, the Almighty in His great mercy, called us and forgave us. Through His Son the Messiah, all charges were dropped against us. This should be a cause for rejoicing.

If our nation observed the Sabbatical and Jubilee years, it would be tremendously blessed, instead of cursed like it is now. There would be no crushing debt nor an imbalance of the very rich and the very poor. Land values would be relatively stable, and inflation and depressions would not occur. The Law of God would be taught in detail every seventh year, which would result in good government and prosperity. But we will have to wait for the millennium for the good results of national obedience to the Almighty's laws.

When

Is the Jubilee Year?

According to William Whiston's footnotes to Josephus, 24 B.C. was a Sabbatical year, and 23 B.C. was a Jubilee year. This would mean that A.D. 27 was a Sabbatical year, and A.D. 28 was a Jubilee year. If this is true, then 1977 was a Sabbatical year and 1978 a Jubilee year. Sabbatical years would occur in 1985, 1992, 1999, 2006, 2013, 2020 and 2027, with the next Jubilee in 2028.

The Jews today are in confusion as to Sabbatical years and Jubilee years. True fifty-year Jubilee years were only counted during Temple times. Some Jews believe that every 15th and 65th years of the world era are Jubilee years. Thus, 1955 and 2005 would be Jubilee years. And 1976 and 1983 would have been Sabbatical years. The year A.D. 1979 equals 5739 A.M. (anno mundi, year of the world, Jewish year computation) or 3,760 years difference. However, Sabbatical years are counted from 3829 A.M. on, the year of the destruction of the Second Temple which was a Sabbatical year (A.D. 69). Whiston's schedule would have A.D. 70 as a Sabbatical year. This means that the Jewish shemittah is every seventh year, without a separate 50th year. The year 1980 would be a seventh year (5740 divides evenly by 7).

Why are the Jews confused?

Because they did not obey God. They admit that when the First Temple stood, full fifty-year cycles were used. The next year after the Jubilee was the first year of the next fifty-year cycle of seven seven-year cycles. Because the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half of Manasseh were exiled, tradition says, the Jubilee was no longer in effect, because it was for " . . . all the inhabitants thereof," Leviticus 25:10. The Jubilees were not properly calculated, and a 49-year cycle was instituted where the "Jubilee" year was also the beginning year of the next seven year cycle. Jubilee is counted by the Jews exactly as they count Pentecost. Hence, Jews observe Sivan 6 as Pentecost (see Encyclopedia Judaica, article "Sabbatical Year and Jubilee," pages 579-580).

Around 153-105 B.C., an apocryphal book, the Book of Jubilees, was written. It divides the history of the world into "Jubilees" of 49-year periods, seven weeks of years. The biblical idea of the Jubilee year, the 50th year following the seven weeks of years (Leviticus 25:8-12) is ignored. Thus, the Jews accepted this erroneous idea and are confused as to the true Jubilee. As the Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible (Abingdon Press, Nashville, 1962), article "Jubilee, Year of," admits, the so-called Book of Jubilees completely disregards the original and true Jubilee Year:

. . . in the official count of Sabbatical Years in the Maccabean and post-Maccabean periods the Jubilee Year was omitted entirely and the Sabbatical Years followed each other in uninterrupted succession every seven years. Moreover, certain later, rabbinic authorities likewise reckoned a Jubilee period as of only forty-nine years, although a majority adhered, quite naturally, to the biblical reckoning of the period as of fifty years.

Jews began to believe that the Law of Jubilee did not apply to them, because the land of Israel was not fully occupied by them. Today, Rabbis have relaxed the Sabbatical year because of "economic hardship." Land is "sold" to Moslems, and leased back. It is observed only ceremonially, not in reality, in order to perpetuate the memory of the Sabbatical year.

Yet Jews believe the Son of David will come on the last Jubilee. "The precept of the Jubilee is often regarded as one of the basic precepts of the Torah! There are seven basic precepts: offerings, tithes, shemittot, Jubilees, circumcision, honor of father and mother, and study of the Torah (Judaica, page 582)."

An article written by an unknown Radio Church of God author in the 1950's agrees with the Jewish concept, that Jubilee years cannot be kept, because upon the Jews' return from captivity, there was no divinely appointed inheritance. Jews were living on land of other tribes which never returned from captivity. The article states that Jeremiah 34:1, 8-16, shows that October 586 B.C. to October 585 was a Sabbatical year. The author states that the seven-year cycles were observed after the return, with no intervening 50th Jubilee year. The year A.D. 69 was said to be a seventh year. And 1952, 1959, 1966, 1973, 1980, 1987, 1994 and 2001 were thought to be Sabbatical years. You can examine various sources, and see that there are different ideas of when the Sabbatical and Jubilee years occur.

The third tithe year depends upon the seven year cycle, Deuteronomy 14:28-29. The Church's administration, or more properly, adaptation, of the third tithe law is pragmatic, not Biblical. They said that since we cannot determine when the Biblical Sabbatical year occurs, then each member was to figure his seven-year cycles from the Feast of Tabernacles (or Feast of Unleavened Bread) nearest his baptism. The third and sixth years in each seven-year cycle would be third tithe years. I was baptized in March of 1969, and figure my seven-year cycles from the Feast of Tabernacles of 1968. For me, then, the years (beginning at the Feast of Tabernacles) of 1974, 1981, 1988, 1995, and 2002 would be Sabbatical years. A person baptized at some other time would have a different seven-year cycle.

In the early 1970s, the Worldwide Church of God excused most people from paying third tithe, saying that their taxes paid for government welfare programs which are intended to alleviate the poor. Likewise, in 1973, the Worldwide Church of God issued a policy on Land Sabbath, stating that it is only a principle. Their new teaching is that the Land Sabbath is not a binding law for which the transgression is sin. Thus, they acceded to the Jewish idea of watering down the Land Sabbath. Jewish Rabbis have abrogated the land rest law. Worldwide Church leaders have loosed members from obeying this law.

When

is the Jubilee year? When is the Sabbatical year? The issue is of major importance. Israel went into captivity for not obeying this law. This is a major area Herbert W. Armstrong never understood. Neither do we understand when we are to begin the Jubilee count. If God will send modern Israel into captivity for the same reason as ancient Israel, knowledge must be increased, and Israel must be warned, Amos 3:7, Daniel 12:4, John 7:17. We look forward to the time when we will understand, and witness the fulfillment, of the Land Sabbath and Jubilee year.

    Presents July 4, 1776

    How many people know that July 4, 1776, was a benchmark not only in secular world history but in Biblical history? Did you know that it was the exact fulfillment of Bible prophecy?

    It began with the covenant God made with His people at Mt. Sinai, and the conditions were these:

    Leviticus 26:3
    If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
    ... then great national blessings would follow, vs. 4-13.
    Leviticus 26:14
    But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;
    ... then great national cursings would follow, vs. 15-22, including a punishment for "seven times".
    Leviticus 26:23
    And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me;

    [24] Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.

    God stated that He would punish His people for "seven times" (a time is 360 years, so seven times would be 2520 years) and would scatter them among the nations if they did not follow His laws and statutes, which they did follow for awhile but then turned away. Space in this article does not permit an in-depth study of the migrations of the tribes of Israel, a subject for another time, but surely it is a foundational study essential to understanding Biblical prophecy.

    You see, it is very easy to document that England represents Ephraim, a company of nations, and the United States represents Manasseh, a great people (Gen. 48). God made a covenant with Abraham that his offspring would become as numerous as the stars of the sky and they would inherit great national wealth and blessings. Those Birthright Blessings were eventually split between Joseph's two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh.

    *Note: If you do not know who the so-called lost 10 tribes of the House of Israel are and where they dwell today, then contact Artisan Publishers at www.artisanpublishers.com and purchase the little booklet The Abrahamic Covenant, by E. Raymond Capt.) or log unto pamphlets #1064 and #1020 on this web site. It will get you started in the right direction... back home to your heritage!
     

    God then repeated that He would chastise His people seven times in vs. 28:

    Leviticus 26:28
    Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

    Leviticus 26:33
    And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

    This is where it truly gets exciting! The 2520 years would commence with the captivity of each of the tribes of Israel. Challenge anyone on this! Look up the date of the captivity of the tribe of Manasseh by the king of Assyria!  Again, E. Raymond Capt's booklet "The Abrahamic Covenant" or the "Missing Links Discovered in Assyrian Tablets", will give you a good start.

    You will find that Tiglath-pileser III in 745 BC records the conquest of Israel and mentions the exact area where Manasseh had been settled. When you add 2520 years to this date, remembering that there is no year "0", you arrive at 1776 (and I will add "July 4th" for the reasons disclosed later in this study.) Coincidence? Not a chance! God's plan and His timetable are perfect.

    I have often said that the Industrial Revolution could not, and did not, occur until the American Revolution had occurred. Why? The 2520 years had to expire and begin the time when true Israel would no longer be the "tail", but would become the "head" of the nations. Who is the head, the superpower of superpowers today?

    Now let's look closely and, if we can "see", we will see God's divine "stamp" on the date July 4th, 1776.

    One of the significances of this date are found in the remarkable "coincidences" surrounding the deaths of our 2nd and 3rd Presidents, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. The following quotations are from Funk & Wagnalls Special Edition entitled "The Presidents", published by The Curtis Publishing Company, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46202:

    "John Adams died on July 4, 1826, the same day as Thomas Jefferson. The following comment on the significance of this coincidence appeared in the July 8, 1826, issue of the Post: "A gentleman arrived from the Eastward, last evening, informs, that the venerable JOHN ADAMS, died at his seat at Quincy, near Boston, on the fourth of July, about five o'clock, P.M. but a few hours after the sage of Monticello!-United in the grand political concerns of life, thus in death they are not divided! The last words of John Adams were said to have been, "Thomas Jefferson still survives..." not knowing that Jefferson had preceded him in death by a few hours."
    Just before he expired, John Adams remarked "Thomas Jefferson still survives". One Early American History textbook calls it, "an extraordinary statement".

    Concerning Thomas Jefferson, "The Presidents" volume continues...

    "On July 4, 1826 he died on the same day as John Adams, and exactly 50 years (emphasize ours) after he had written the Declaration of Independence. The death notices of the two friends appeared side-by-side in the July 8, 1826, issue of the Post. Jefferson's read: The venerable patriarch and sage, the immortal author of the Declaration of Independence, THOMAS JEFFERSON, Esq. expired at his seat, at Monticello, on the fourth of July, at ten minutes before one o'clock, just fifty years since the promulgation, in the Halls of Congress, of the Liberties of this country. His death had been looked for two or three days before it took place, as he was confined to his bed during that time by severe indisposition. He was sensible of his approaching dissolution, and prescribed the mode of his interment. Well might he have exclaimed in the language of the psalmist, "Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word, for my eyes have seen thy salvation."..."
    Thomas Jefferson apparently "knew" two or three days ahead of time that he was going to die on July 4, 1826. Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on July 4, 1826, exactly 50 years from the signing of the Declaration of Independence, within a few hours of each other! Coincidence? Not in this case.

    The number 50 in Biblical numerics denotes a "Jubilee" and is comprised of 5 (the number of grace) times 10 (the number of law). Reference appendix 10 if you have a Companion Bible. The Jubilee year was the year in which all debts public and private are released and liberty is proclaimed throughout the land.

    Leviticus 25:10
    And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
    From this verse, Leviticus 25:10, which declares the 50th year of the Jubilee, the words "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof" are taken and inscribed on our LIBERTY BELL. It is most fitting that a quote from the Book of Leviticus be inscribed on our most precious symbol of liberty. For it is in this great book, through the adherence to the laws and statutes contained therein, that TRUE LIBERTY is granted.

    And so every 50 years the Liberty Bell was to be rung, i.e. the Scripture was to be fulfilled, the law from Lev. 25:10 inscribed on the Bell was to be obeyed, and "liberty was to be proclaimed throughout the land". But guess what? It wasn't proclaimed and 20 years after it should have been, it "cracked" for the second time, and the expansion of that crack rendered the Bell "Unringable". And believe it or not, it occurred on Washington's Birthday in 1846, just a few months short of the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence! For those who have "eyes to see", the number 70 in Biblical Numerics denotes the "Restoration of Israel".

    Did you know that at one time in this great nation in order to be a judge you had to thoroughly know both the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Today the judges must make sure that they are NOT TAUGHT in our schools nor mentioned in their courtrooms. Of course the streets of our cities are not safe to walk at night, and our schools must be equipped with metal detectors and police, and so the liberties of the people have been given over to the ungodly and they "Proclaim Fear Throughout the Land".

    Continuing now with the deaths of Adams and Jefferson, it also is no coincidence that John Adam's last dying words were "Thomas Jefferson still survives"... indeed a strange saying for a dying man. Why? Well, since it is not at all uncommon for those in the transition of dying to claim they see or recognize a loved one, there is little doubt that John Adams saw Thomas Jefferson in his room and together they departed for "home", mission accomplished. What was the comment published in the Post in the July 8th, 1826 edition that we read? "Thus in death they are not divided." And so they were not!

    That these two great men were used by our Father to help lay the foundation of this "One nation under God" is without question or dispute.  God truly blesses America, and John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were among those Presidents who certainly proved to be a blessing to this nation. Their "coincidental" death on the First Jubilee of our nation was no coincidence, for the hand of God was upon these two. For you see, the history of our great country is but a continuation of the History of the people of the Bible.

    So on President's Day let us give thanks for the blessings and freedoms that we still have in this One Nation Under God and let us remember the great men who served as her President.

    One more interesting note: James Monroe, the 5th President of the United States, also died on July 4th. Three of the first five Presidents of this great nation died on the 4th of July. Isn't that amazing?

    HISTORY OF THE LIBERTY BELL

    Author David Kimball noted, "The Liberty Bell is not only our nation's most famous and venerated object, it has become a world-wide symbol of freedom."1 The Bell heralded freedom from tyranny, oppression, and slavery. Its inscription, "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants Thereof" prescribed in 1751, was considered a prediction of America's Declaration of Independence.

    "Perhaps the secret behind this famous Bell lies in the nature of the 'liberties' for which it stands, and which its motto "Proclaim Liberty throughout the Land," has represented. For throughout the history of the Bell there have been three basic liberties embraced: the religious liberty of William Penn's colony; the political liberty of young America; and the liberty of Blacks from slavery. In total, these liberties include men and women of all creeds, all parties and all races. Their dreams and aspirations may differ, but the underlying freedom which makes them possible is forged into this one Bell, a symbol not only for Americans but for all the peoples of the world."2

    "It is the most famous bell in the world …the most widely traveled bell in the world …the most duplicated and scale reproduced bell on the planet." 2

    1. The Story of Liberty, David Kimball - Eastern National, 1989
    2. Ring in Jubilee, Charles Michael Boland - Chatham Press, 1973

    1751 The Pennsylvania Assembly celebrates 50 years of civil and religious liberty under Wm. Penn's 1701 Charter of Priviledges (Penn's insights are later praised by both Franklin and Jefferson). Philadelphia's rapid growth demands a larger Assembly bell. Assembly Speaker Issac Norris promotes the inscription, "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants Thereof," probably at the suggestion of Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was already working on his "Plan of Union" and was certainly aware of Wm. Penn's 1681 prediction about the area and form of goverment, "God, I believe, will bless and make it the seed of a nation."3 The bell is referred to as the Providence Bell.4 The order for the bell is placed with the Whitechapel Bell Foundry of London England.
    1752 The bell arrives in Philadelphia on September 1st. Shortly after unloading the bell, the sound is tried, and the bell cracks. Lesson: Ringing the bell by tying a rope to the 44 lb. clapper can far exceed the force applied by normal operation, i.e. swinging the bell and allowing the clapper to strike naturally.
    1753 The bell is recast twice, once for repair, and once to improve the tone of the repaired bell.
    1776 The bell is rung for the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence
    1777 The bell is rung wildly to celebrate the first year of Independence. In September, the bell is moved to a church in Allentown to hide it from the British who would melt it for cannon and shot.
    1778 The bell is returned to Philadelphia.
    1831 The symbol of the Liberty Bell provides a theme for several anti-slavery pamphlets. Samuel Francis Smith writes the song America with the words "Sweet Land of Liberty …Author of Liberty …From Every Mountainside, Let Freedom Ring."5
    1835 The bell cracks while tolling the death of Chief Justice John Marshall on July 8th. There are earlier occasions when the bell was said to have cracked, each could have been extensions of a hairline crack beginning at the lip of the bell and eventually extending past the date on the face of the bell.
    1846 The bell cracks while ringing for George Washington's Birthday (the bell's last full ring). By an act of the Pennsylavania Legislature, the bell was to ring throughout the day. Prior to the day's events, there was concern about the hairline crack, i.e. vibration from ringing could worsen the situation. The crack was filed out to prevent the vibration, and rivets were added. The bell gave out clear loud notes until noon when the crack extended beyond the filed area and put the bell completely out of tune.3 Eventaully a brace was added inside the bell to add strength. After this, the bell would only be tapped ceremonily.
    1885 Over the next 30 years the Liberty Bell went on several national tours, playing a signifcant role in rebuilding of national unity after the devastation of the Civil War.
    1900 Over the next 20 years the Liberty Bell was used symbolically to support voting rights for women.
    1915 The Liberty Bell is sounded as part of the first coast to coast telephone call.
    1926 The Liberty Bell is sounded over the radio for the 150th birthday of the United States.
    1944 The Liberty Bell is sounded over the radio on June 6th D-Day.
    1963 "Let Freedom Ring" is a motto of the Civil Rights Movement - quoted by Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.5
    1976 and Beyond - The Liberty Bell is sounded ceremonially each year on July 4th.

    HOW WAS THE LIBERTY BELL MADE?

    1. Small bricks are made of clay and two secret ingredients. The bricks are stacked in the shape of a bell. This is used as the base or inside form for the bell shape, referred to as a false bell.

    2. The brick form is coated with the same clay material until a smooth bell shape is formed. This is allowed to dry and is touched up as needed.

    3. The outer form for the bell consists of a large metal shell, which must be coated on the inside with the same clay material. While the clay in this outer form is still pliable, letter stamps are used to stamp in the words and numbers that will appear on the outside of the actual bell.

    4. When both of the forms are ready, the outer form is placed over the inner form, and the two are clamped together.

    5. The foundry melts copper and tin to create the liquid bronze that will be poured into the top of the bell forms. After the pouring is complete, the forms are allowed to cool over several days.

    6. The outside and the inner forms are separated, and the blackened clay material that adheres to the bell is cleaned off.

    7. When the bell has passed inspection, the yoke and clapper are added to complete the bell.

    The secret ingredients in the clay are horse manure and goat hair; this helps to reduce shrinkage and cracking in the clay. As a result, the forms are less fragile and surface of the bell is improved.

    July 4th, 1776

    Not many people in our land know that July 4, 1776, was truly a benchmark in Biblical history and that it was the exact fulfillment of Bible prophecy. They are also amazed when they discover that both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the 2nd and 3rd Presidents respectively, died on July 4th, 1826, exactly 50 years to the day from the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the event we celebrate today.

    Here is another fact that many people are not aware of and that is that our Liberty Bell is inscribed with scripture from God's Word, the Bible! The scripture is from Leviticus 25:10, "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof".

You see, to liberals and anti-Christian groups it is much more dangerous to civilization for a student to carry a Bible than to carry a gun. But guess what? You may go ahead read God's Word and you don't need permission or sanction from any group, church, religious organization, or government agency.

    So let's lay some foundation from the Book of Leviticus and see what our Father has to say regarding His laws. Then we will go to secular history and discover some remarkable "coincidences" surrounding Independence Day.

    First, it is written in the Book of Leviticus that God made a covenant with His people* at Mt. Sinai in the wilderness and the conditions of the covenant were these:

    Leviticus 26:3
    If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
    ... then great national blessings would follow, vs. 4-13.
    Leviticus 26:14
    But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;
    ... then great national cursings would follow, vs. 15-23.

    * Many preachers, pastors, ministers, etc., teach that the people who were gathered at Mt. Sinai, i.e. God's people, were all "Jews". Do not fall victim to teachings void of both Biblical and historical accuracy regarding Hebrews, Israelites, and Jews. Write or e-mail us at the addresses given at the end of this study and request the booklet "The Abrahamic Covenant", by E. Raymond Capt. In this booklet you will discover exactly who the so-called Lost Tribes of Israel really are and where they dwell this very day!

    Furthermore, God stated that if His people "would not hearken unto Him" that He would chastise them for "seven times" and would scatter them among the nations. A "time" is a solar year of 360 days, just as the "time, times, and half a time" of Dan. 12:7 is the same as 1260 days in Revelation. So twice 3 1/2 times, or 7 times, would be 2520 days. Then we learn from the great prophet Ezekiel in chapter 4, vs. 6, that when the subject is Israel's punishment then a day is given to represent one year. So "seven times" would be 7 x 360 years or 2520 years. Here is the prophecy announcing that period of chastisement:

    Leviticus 26:28
    Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

    Leviticus 26:33
    And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

    This is where it truly gets exciting! The 2520 years would commence with the captivity of each of the tribes of Israel. Unfortunately, space here does not permit an in-depth study of the migrations of the tribes of Israel, a subject for another time, and surely a foundation essential to understanding prophecy. But you will find that the Birthright Blessings contained in the covenant that God made with Abraham were eventually split between Joseph's two sons Ephraim and Manasseh. It is very easy to document that England represents Ephraim, a company of nations, and the United States represents Manasseh, who literally became 13th tribe of Israel, a great people, (Gen 48).  That is why the number 13 is stamped on our nation's history, i.e. 13 original colonies, 13 original states, etc.

    Now challenge anyone on this! Look up the date of the captivity of the tribe of Manasseh by the king of Assyria!  E. Raymond Capt's book "Missing Links Discovered in Assyrian Tablets", pg. 67, Artisan Sales, Calif. will give you a good head start.

    You will find that Tiglath-pileser III in 745 BC records the conquest of Israel and mentions the exact area where Manasseh had been settled. When you add 2520 years to this date, you arrive at July 4th, 1776. Coincidence? Not a chance! God's plan and His timetable are perfect.

    I have often said that the Industrial Revolution could not, and did not, occur until the American Revolution had occurred. Why? The 2520 years had to expire and begin the time when true Israel would no longer be the "tail", but would become the "head" of nations, which is to say the superpower of superpowers.

    Now let's look closely and, if you can open your eyes to "see", you will see God's divine "stamp" on the date July 4th, 1776.

    Evidence of the significance of this date are found in the remarkable "coincidences" surrounding the deaths of our 2nd and 3rd Presidents, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. The following quotations are from Funk & Wagnalls Special Edition entitled "The Presidents", published by The Curtis Publishing Company, Indianapolis, Indiana, 46202:

    "John Adams died on July 4, 1826, the same day as Thomas Jefferson. The following comment on the significance of this coincidence appeared in the July 8, 1826, issue of the Post: "A gentleman arrived from the Eastward, last evening, informs, that the venerable JOHN ADAMS, died at his seat at Quincy, near Boston, on the fourth of July, about five o'clock, P.M. but a few hours after the sage of Monticello!-United in the grand political concerns of life, thus in death they are not divided! The last words of John Adams were said to have been, "Thomas Jefferson still survives..." not knowing that Jefferson had preceded him in death by a few hours."
    Just before he expired, John Adams remarked "Thomas Jefferson still survives". One Early American History textbook calls it, "an extraordinary statement".

    Concerning Thomas Jefferson, "The Presidents" volume continues...

    "On July 4, 1826 he died on the same day as John Adams, and exactly 50 years (emphasize ours) after he had written the Declaration of Independence. The death notices of the two friends appeared side-by-side in the July 8, 1826, issue of the Post. Jefferson's read: The venerable patriarch and sage, the immortal author of the Declaration of Independence, THOMAS JEFFERSON, Esq. expired at his seat, at Monticello, on the fourth of July, at ten minutes before one o'clock, just fifty years since the promulgation, in the Halls of Congress, of the Liberties of this country. His death had been looked for two or three days before it took place, as he was confined to his bed during that time by severe indisposition. He was sensible of his approaching dissolution, and prescribed the mode of his interment. Well might he have exclaimed in the language of the psalmist, "Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word, for my eyes have seen thy salvation..."
    Thomas Jefferson apparently "knew" two or three days ahead of time that he was going to die on July 4, 1826. And both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died on that same day, July 4, 1826, exactly 50 years from the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Remarkably, they died within a few hours of each other! Coincidence? I think not!

    The number 50 in Biblical numerics denotes a "Jubilee", the year in which all debts public and private are released and once again liberty is proclaimed throughout the land.

    Leviticus 25:10
    And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
    And so every 50 years the Liberty Bell was to be rung, i.e. the Scripture was to be fulfilled, the law was to be obeyed, and "liberty was to be proclaimed throughout the land". But guess what? It was NOT proclaimed and 20 years after it should have been, the bell "cracked", and the expansion of that crack rendered the Bell unringable. Folks, it occurred on Washington's Birthday in 1846, just a few months short of the 70th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence! Oh, and by the way, 70 in what is called "Biblical Numerics" denotes the "restoration of Israel".

    The number 50, however, is the Jubilee number which we just read of, and it is comprised of 5, the number of grace, times 10, the number of law as in the 10 Commandments.

    Note: There is an appendix in back of the Companion Bible, by Kregel Publishers, which explains Biblical Numerics, i.e. the significance of numbers in scripture. An example is the number 40 which denotes trial, testing or probation, and every time it is used it is connected with trial, testing or probation. It rained 40 days and 40 nights at the flood of Noah, Israel wandered in the wilderness 40 years, Christ was tempted 40 days, etc, etc. Pretty amazing, isn't it? Ask the scoffers and skeptics, "How did all the different authors of the books of the Bible know to use the same number code?")

    Now, it is no coincidence that John Adam's last dying words were "Thomas Jefferson still survives"... indeed a seemingly extraordinary saying for this dying man. Why? Since many doctors and ministers will confirm that it is not at all uncommon for those in the transition of dying to claim they see or recognize a loved one, there is little doubt that John Adams saw Thomas Jefferson in his room and together they departed for "home", mission accomplished. Read again the comment published in the Post in the July 8th, 1826 edition! "Thus in death they are not divided." And so they were not divided in death!

    That these two great men were used by our Father to help lay the foundation of this "One nation under God" is without dispute.  God truly blesses America! And John Adams and Thomas Jefferson certainly proved to be a blessing to this nation. Their "coincidental" death on the First Jubilee of our nation, the land of the free and the home of the brave, was no coincidence, for the hand of God was upon these two.  We thank our Father for them.

    One more interesting note: James Monroe, the 5th President of the United States, also died on July 4th. That's right! Three of the first five Presidents of this great nation died on the 4th of July. Isn't that amazing?

    Please feel free to share this study with all your friends and relatives this July 4th holiday and have a great Independence Day as we celebrate the miracle of the birth of the United States of America, to whom we pledge our allegiance, One Nation Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

    July 4th, 1776

    Not many people in our land know that July 4, 1776, was truly a benchmark in Biblical history and that it was the exact fulfillment of Bible prophecy. They are also amazed when they discover that both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the 2nd and 3rd Presidents respectively, died on July 4th, 1826, exactly 50 years to the day from the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the event we celebrate today.

    Here is another fact that many people are not aware of and that is that our Liberty Bell is inscribed with scripture from God's Word, the Bible! The scripture is from Leviticus 25:10, "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof".

    Click on the link above to read the rich history of this most famous of bells.

    It is most fitting that a quote from the Book of Leviticus be inscribed on our most precious symbol of liberty, for it is in this great book through the adherence to the laws and ordinances contained therein that true liberty is granted. Did you know that at one time in this great nation in order to be a judge you had to know both the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Today the judges must make sure that they are not taught in our schools nor even mentioned in their courtrooms. Of course the streets of our cities are not safe to walk at night, and our schools must be equipped with metal detectors and police, and so the liberties of the people have been given over to the ungodly and they "proclaim fear throughout the land". You see, to liberals and anti-Christian groups it is much more dangerous to civilization for a student to carry a Bible than to carry a gun. But guess what? You may go ahead read God's Word and you don't need permission or sanction from any group, church, religious organization, or government agency.

    Leviticus 26:14
    But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;
    ... then great national cursings would follow, vs. 15-23.

    * Many preachers, pastors, ministers, etc., teach that the people who were gathered at Mt. Sinai, i.e. God's people, were all "Jews".

So "seven times" would be 7 x 360 years or 2520 years. Here is the prophecy announcing that period of chastisement:
