Year of Jubilee



The return of Jesus Christ as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is looked forward to occuring on a future year of Jubilee.  How appropriate that the year the prisoners are set free, the One who sets all men free will establish His millennial kingdom. 

There is some controversay over what current years are now the year of Jubilee.  Bonnie Gaunt has put together a calculation showing 2015 AD as a year of Jubilee, counting from before Jesus Christ was born:

Consider the significant events that occured during the last two Jubilee's:

Sept 17, 1917 - Sept 7, 1918 - 50th Jubilee - British General Allanby Captures Jerusalem and enters the city on foot, December 11, 1917

Sept 15, 1966 - Oct 5, 1967 - 51st Jubilee - Israel Captures Jerusalem, enters the city, and secures it on June 7, 1967

Bringing up the next Jubilee:

Sept 14, 2015 - Oct 3, 2016 - 52nd Jubilee - Jesus Christ possibly comes in Spirit on September 23, 2015, hidden as with His conception, then comes in Body and reveals Himself as with His birth, setting down on the Mount of Olives on June 4, 2016

Most people are very aware of June 7, 1967 but less people are aware of the prophetic significance of General Allenby.  Quoting from "The Times of the Gentiles", by Joseph Hubbard, Tisdale, Canada, Feb 15 1919, page 36:

In 1898 A.D., when the Kaiser of Germany visited the holy land, a beautiful highway was specially built from Joppa to Jerusalem, for him to ride over in the state carriages of Germany, which had been brought by steamer for this occasion.  When he, and his State Officers, and Ladies of State were entering the holy city, the young Turks were greatly excited exclaiming:  "Here comes the deliverer of Palestine and the Jews."  An aged Turk hearing their exclamations of terror remarked:  "This is not the man."  Then, he repeated an old, old Moslem prophecy; that the deliverer of Jerusalem and the Jews, would enter the city on foot, and his name would be a combination of the name of God, and of the prophet.  Gen. Allanby was regarded by Moslems as such a combination of the name of their God and their prophet.  The Arabic name for God is Alla, represented by the first syllable of the General's name.  The Arabic for prophet is Nebi, this is the second syllable.  Vast numbers of Moslems have been familiar for generations with this prophecy, and are now firmly convinced that it has been fulfilled.

Note that we have:

Lion - During the 50th Jubilee, on 12/11/1917, England, their symbol being the Lion, takes over the "throne" of Jerusalem
Judah - During the 51st Jubilee, on 6/7/1967, the nation of Israel made up currently of just the tribe of Judah, the "Jews", takes over the "throne" of Jerusalem
Future Speculation and Analogy:  The Lion of Judah - During the 52nd Jubilee, on 9/23/2015, Shiloh, the Lion of Judah, takes over the "throne" of Jerusalem for the millenium in fulfillment of Genesis 49:8-10?

Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.  Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?  The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.  Genesis 49:8, 9, 10

(Shiloh is a synonym for Messiah and means tranquil or peaceful.  And He shall rule during the thousand years of peace, of rest, from Jerusalem, the city of Peace.)

And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.  And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.  And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.   Revelation 5:3, 4, 5

Shalom for Jeru"shalom", the city of Peace,
