There are many books, videos and sermons that are causing confusion in the minds of those who really want the truth. Why has this cloud moved in to deceive and lead people astray?
I have had to deal with it myself simply because I recognized that of all the important prophecies that have been given to us concerning, the transition from this age into the Kingdom, the Jubilee is one of the most critical to understanding. It is as though the forces of the deceivers, which include both demons and fallen angels, are at work against understanding and wisdom.
I wrote in an earlier blog about the anti-Messiah, (Anti-Christ for those of you who are fond of only the Greek version). John, the Apostle, wrote that the anti-messiahs (plural) were already at work deceiving the MASSES. That is what YAHU-SHUA (“Jesus” for those of you who are fond of only the Greek version) prophesied would happen.
“Multitudes will come in My Name, and say that I am the Christ, and would deceive the MASSES.”
And that has in fact happened.
Enoch saw in his dream vision that the seventh age or “Week” would be apostate and that all its works, which would be MANY, would be apostate.
We are still buried in the debris of apostasy and poisoned by its corruption.
There are two things that millions of “believers” are looking for that have been, believe or not, in what they are drowning:
- The Apostasy
- The Anti-Christ
They are neck deep in the apostasies that have overwhelmed them as a result of the work of the “anti-christs!”
Certainly, there are troubling times ahead and increased deception, but is it not time to get cleaned up and know the truth and know that you really know it?
Truth is a rare commodity, and the teachers of falsehood are many!
There is an interesting series of rebukes against the Pharisees and the scribes in Matthew 23. But when many people read this, if they do, they miss the significance of at who the rebukes were aimed.
Most people have heard of the Pharisee, but few have grasp the historical fact that these came out of the exile in Babylon and brought with them a 5.5 million word document called the Babylonian Talmud. In the process of creating this, they, by intention, decided to take the place of the Levitical priests. The sons of Levi were assigned by covenant to be the teachers of the people.
YAHUA had decided, because of the unfaithfulness of the priests, to revoke the covenant. But He said, “They revoked it for Him!” And because of this treachery, the people would be dispersed among the gentiles. They were—in 135 AD— after an unsuccessful rebellion against the Romans led by a “messiah” named Simon Bar Kochba.
That time is the subject of the prophecy of Daniel 9, called the “70 weeks” prophecy given to Daniel by Gabriel. And Enoch also prophesied about that time as a time of blindness. Enoch also wrote, regarding that time, that the temple would be burned and the people would be dispersed!
That was the result of the treacherous work of the Pharisees.
But there was another group that came before, during and after the Pharisees that caused at least as much or even more than the Pharisees – the Scribes!
The scribes can be divided into groups:
- The faithful scribes
- Scribes that worked falsehood
- Scribes that were inept!
The work of the Hebrew scribes is legend. They were considered to be the most accurate and those that took their craft most seriously. We have seen how the oldest document of Isaiah, discovered buried near the Dead Sea, was assumed to match the Masoretic Hebrew text of our modern documents. But is that true?
Is there any proof that the scribes were totally faithful?
Or did they cave-in to the pressures of the Ba’al worshipers and corrupt the very targeted and stinging words of YAHUA?
Here is Isaiah 53:3 from the King James Version:
 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Here is the translation of the Isaiah Scroll in the style of the King James Version. From chapter 53:
 He is despised and rejected of men and man of sorrows, and he knows grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him, and despised him, and we esteemed him not.
Although this may not look significant, it really is. For example, “acquainted with grief” leads one to think that His experience with grief was only casual. But if one “knows grief” then it is very serious.
Also the passive, “he was despised” loses the sense of the Scriptures. It is like “acquainted,” and it was only a “casual” despising. But the statement, “WE … despised Him,” is what this passage is really saying. This shows our participation. “We hid; we despised; we did not esteem him.”
As I go through the prophets on the broadcast, I find that we come face to face with our serious casualness with what the Scriptures are really trying to make plain to us.
Sadly, the scribes were not careful. They yielded under the pressures of the religious leaders and tried to make subtle changes to please the unwise.
Notice this rebuke from Jeremiah 8:
Even the stork in the heavens knows her appointed times. And a turtledove, and a swallow, and a thrush guard the time of their coming. But My people do not know the right-ruling of YAHUA.
How can you say, “We are wise, and the Torah of Yahua is with us”?
But look! The false pen of the scribe has worked falsehood!
The wise shall be put to shame. They shall be broken down and caught. See! They have REJECTED the Word of YAHUA. So what wisdom do they have?
The scribes have changed the Torah! The Scribes have weakened the prophets. And the translators have enhanced the lie with their corruptible practice of making sure the translations say what is pleasing to the corrupt leaders of the religions!
In places words are added, sentences changed, words that “offend” are removed, never to be seen again!
For example, the phrase “the first of the first month” was corrupted by the translators to say, “on the NEW MOON of the first month.” That latter phrase “new moon” and others like that are not even found in the Hebrew Scriptures. The translators (scribes) submitting to the pressure of the religious leaders added the phrase “new moon.”
Consequently, even to this day, the apostasy rages on in the presentations of those who want you think they are following the Torah of YAHUA and the Prophets, when in fact, they are NOT.
They even use the Feasts and High Days when they do not understand them and how they are appointed!
For example, the Feast of Firstfruits is not on the first day of the week DURING the Feast of Unleavened Bread, as one author thinks! The Wave Sheaf offering was to take place on the first day of the week AFTER the Feast of Unleavened Bread had ended. That puts it AFTER the next weekly Sabbath after Unleavened Bread had finished.
Starting on that first day of the week and continuing for Seven complete Weeks or Sabbaths takes us to the 14th day of the 3rd month. (Enoch Calendar)
The Scriptures and the context of the Scriptures clearly show that the Feast of Firstfruits is appointed to the 15th day of the Third Month and 75 days from the start of the year. But they would not see that unless they had a correctly discerned copy of the Calendar revealed to Enoch. This Calendar, by the way, is the only Calendar revealed in Scripture. Yes, that means that the Book of Enoch (Enoch 1) is Scripture!
This is only a few example of the carelessness and lack of wisdom that seems to drive many thousands of people to make serious mistakes in prophecy and understanding the times.
Book of Jubilees has been corrupted
This past week I have been going through the Book of Jubilees, where both the scribes and translators had a field day!
In addition, the ancient scribe who wrote that book or at least edited it made it useless when it comes to understanding the Jubilee and applying it. Here is how …
The Book of Genesis carefully records the length of the lives of our fathers. The only line, of descendents from Adam for which we can know how long they lived and when they died, is the line of Seth through Enoch to Noah. Their ages at death were recorded so that we would understand.
I say this to bring to your attention the fact that the scribe or scribes who wrote or edited the Book of Jubilees, took from Genesis the number of years that each of our fathers lived, and then attempted to convert them into “Jubilees.” The problem was the scribe of the Book of Jubilees did not understand what is in the Torah, and in particular Leviticus 25.
When you look deeply into the Book of Jubilees, you will find some interesting history that helps explain events that the Bible only provides a sentence. But if you want to learn anything about the Jubilees, forget it. The book only adds confusion and makes Jubilees even more difficult to understand.
Torah provides evidence and understanding of the Year of Jubilee
On the other hand, the Torah provides sufficient information and instruction so that we can understand the “mysterious” Jubilee and how it applies to our lives today.
Here is what the 25th chapter of Leviticus provides:
- A Jubilee is a group of seven “weeks” of years.
- A “week” is group of ordered years (1 – 7).
- The 7th year in each “week” is a “Sabbath Year” during which time the land is to rest. No planting was to be done in the 7th year in each of the seven weeks.
- Therefore, the Jubilee consists of 49 years. And this is where understanding falls off the cliff.
- There is another year, the 50th year, called the Year of Jubilee that is NOT part of the Jubilee (the prior 49 years).
- During the Year of Jubilee land was to be restored to the original owner or to the family of the original owner. No planting or harvesting, including that which grew on its own, was to be done during the Year of Jubilee. Although they could eat what they found in the field.
- The coming Year of Jubilee was announced to the people on YOM KIPPOR by the sounding of the ram’s horn in the 49th year of the Jubilee.
- The 50th year is a SET-APART year, but it is not a Sabbath year.
- On the 6th year of each “week” the people would be blessed with sufficient food to carry them through the 9th year! That raises a question: Why the 9th year? The answer is because they needed that many years to get through the Year of Jubilee, when it comes: the Sabbath year (no planting or harvesting), the Year of Jubilee (no planting, no harvesting but “You may eat only the growth DIRECT from the field” In other words, “go into the field and eat what you find!”), the first year of the next Jubilee (a year of planting and harvest if possible.) [It seems the reason for the allowance to eat "direct from the field" is due to the amount of reshuffling and movement of people that will take place throughout the land.]
The Year of Jubilee, a special SET-APART year was not a rest year like years 7 in each of the weeks of the Jubilee. The Year of Jubilee was a time of restoration and returning the LAND to the families to which it was originally given. The focus is on the LAND given by both promise and by lot to the people who are the descendents of either the House of Israel (the “lost ten tribes”) or the House of Judah (currently living in the modern day state of Israel).
Here is some of the recent history regarding the Year of Jubilee and the LAND.
- Year 1867, Alaska was purchased by the United States. Canada became a nation.
- Year 1917, The British government who were holding the Land of Israel decided to make the land a state (nation) for the people of Judah. The Balfour letter was sent to Lord Rothschild to solicit his help.
- Year 1967, The Six-day War in Israel was fought around and on the time of the Feast of Weeks/Feast of Firstfruits. The result was that the people of Judah won the Golan Heights, all of Jerusalem, the portion of the land known as the “West Bank,” and all the land down to the Red Sea! The modern land of Israel was equivalent to almost as much land as Israel had during the time of the Kingdom of David and Solomon!
This restoration and returning of the land of Promise shows a pattern of 50 years between each event and is the type of outcome one ought to expect for the Year of Jubilee. If you do the math you will see the true pattern.
Here is what the Jewish Study Bible says about the Jubilee:
Jubilee (Heb yovel, perhaps “ram” from the sounding of the ram’s horn to mark the beginning of the observance) the YEAR of release for the slaves and return of ancestral land to the original owners (or decedents of the owners), to occur every fifty years (AFTER seven Sabbaths of years) ( Leviticus 25). It is a cornerstone of Priestly ideology, but it is uncertain if it was ever practiced.
Leviticus 25 becomes confused in the mind of those who follow the Babylonian derived Jewish lunar calendar that starts in the seventh month. They assume that this “false” start is revealed in Scripture, when it is not found, except in tradition and ex-scriptural documents. This is a product of the false pen of the scribes including translators.
But it makes clear sense with regard to the Enoch Calendar revealed from Heaven by the Messenger Uriel. This Calendar starts only in the spring with the observation of the equinox. The sound of the horn on Yom Kippur signals the coming of the Year of Jubilee – the 50th year that starts in the spring. Therefore the people have time to prepare and look forward to that year.
This means that an attempt to keep Sabbaths, Feasts, High Days, Year of Jubilee, and the seven Sabbaths of years, on any other calendar except the Enoch Calendar leads to uncleanness in both mind (confusion) and spirit. It is that mistake and corruption that Yahua declares that He hates!
Why do we need to understand the Year of Jubilee?
Considering the pattern of the three years above (1867, 1917, 1967) the NEXT Year of Jubilee is the spring of 2017 to the spring of 2018 of the Enoch Calendar. Furthermore, the true pattern laid down in Scripture is 49 years, followed by the 50th year, then 49 years followed by the 50th year, and so on. It has NEVER been 49 years followed by another 49 years assuming that the first year of the second 49 years is also the 50th year for the prior 49 years. That is confusion and a product of “the false pen of the scribes creating falsehood!”
Also the priests and scribes have attempted to keep a record of all the years from creation. Unfortunately, they lost track of the time when Israel was in Egypt and when they were in Babylon. However, they are only off by a couple of hundred years. At the time of this writing this is Jewish year 5771. Not really much to get excited about, is it?
Days allotted to Man
However, prior to the flood, Yahua declared, “Let the Days allowed him be 120 Years.” A puzzling statement, is it not? What is Yahua referring to “Days?” or “Years?” or something to be understood in a different context? In Genesis a “Day” has several meanings. Chapter 1 refers to the Days of Heaven and earth in the Day they were created. Two meanings. In one case the “Days” refers to a “week” of periods or eons. In the other the “Day” refers the entire time of their creation! Also Adam and Eve were told that in the Day they ate of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, in that Day they would die. Well, they ate but they were still alive on the next “day”. Again, multiple meanings. After Yahua made the statement above, men continued to live long lives of more than 900 years.
So what kind of year comprises the “Days” allowed to Man? If we take the number of counted days in the Enoch Calendar (360) and multiple that against the number of years (120) we get 43,200. What are we looking at now? Days? Or Years? That really doesn’t help, does it?
But if we look at the “Days of Man” as being Man’s time, which is a general term used to define a period where Man is in charge of his life, we find that we are now in a position to use the “120 Years” to determine something more about that time. And we have the Year of the Jubilee to help us. We know that the Year of Jubilee happens every 50 years. It is a special or set-apart year. So if we have 120 of those allowed to the Days of Man, we have 120 Year of Jubilee multiplied by 50 Years or the “Days of Man” are 6000 years, right? In other words that is almost a “Week” of thousand years periods, which are also called a Day!
What then should we expect on the very next day AFTER the 6,000 years have completed? A Sabbath of 1000 years, right? What does the book of Revelation tell us? That a period of 1000 years starts immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days!
Events have happened to the House of Israel and Judah that happened at 50 year intervals. The next time of the Year of Jubilee will be 2017-2018 on the Enoch Calendar. During that time, the last plagues will be poured out on the land and according to the prophets the House of Israel and House of Judah will be gathered back to the land. Their enemies that were around them will be no more! 1000 years of rest will allow the world to be healed, rebuilt and replanted. It will be a glorious time filled with knowledge, wisdom and understand and love beyond what we are able to grasp.
An interesting line from the movie Avatar said something very profound goes something like this, “We have two times to be born.” Jake Sully was coming to grips with the changes that had taken over his life. He had a new body that had new skills and talents. In his old body, he was sick and weak. His legs did not work. But in his new body he was part of the new world and a member of a new family that had a spiritual connection with all things living.
So it is, and so it shall be with us.
