Sabbatical and Jubilee years

The Land Sabbath & Jubilee years.

Lately I’ve heard people urgue the validity of these most ignored appointment s YHVH gave mankind. They say they are not known when and if they should be kept.
We need to peruse biblical history to be enlightened.
Our emphases should been the book of Kings.
II kgs.18:1,”Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign”.
It was in The third year or Hoshea king of Israel that Hezekiah became king of Judah.By now Jacob’s postility is two different kingdoms. The northern being Samaria (Israel) and Judah in the south.
Hezekiah was put in leadership by Shalmanesser king of Assyria.
II kgs.17:1-3,” In the twelfth year of Ahaz king of Judah began Hoshea the son of Elah to reign in Samaria over Israel nine years.
2 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, but not as the kings of Israel that were before him.
3 Against him came up Shalmaneser king of Assyria; and Hoshea became his servant, and gave him presents”.
This was after Hoshea became unfaithful to Assyria by seeking alliance with Egypt. Egypt was great enemy of Assyria. Cp: II kgs.17:4-7,”And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.
5 Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years.
6 In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.
7 For so it was, that the children of Israel had sinned against the LORD their God, which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods”,
Why was the northern kingdom being under foreigners?Vs.9-13 tels us they were being punished for disobeying the law of YHVH,”And the children of Israel did secretly those things that were not right against the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.
10 And they set them up images and groves in every high hill, and under every green tree: 11 And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger:
12 For they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing.
13 Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets”.
They had disobeyed the Law,Statutes and the ordinances of YHVH.
It worthy noting the early manuscripts read ‘my statutes’.
What are Statutes?
Strong’s is #2708- chaqqah – enactments as described ie the decrees as prescribed in Ex.12,Lev.23 and 25(New moons,weekly Sabbaths, Feasts,sabbatical and jubilee cycles)
As a result of their herdeness the Almighty was wrathful with Israel- IIkgs.17:18-23,” Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.

19 Also Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made.

20 And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.

21 For he rent Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king: and Jeroboam drave Israel from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin.

22 For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they departed not from them;

23 Until the LORD removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day(Even as you read this article the northern kingdom is still scattered abroad having lost their identity).
And the king of Assyria replaced the captured with Samaritans.
On Judah we read,”Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign.
2 Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah.
3 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.
4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those

days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.
5 He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.
6 For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.
7 And the LORD was with him; and he prospered whithersoever he went forth: and he rebelled against the king of Assyria, and served him not”.
9 And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Shalmaneser king of Assyria came up against Samaria, and besieged it”.
This is the second attack of Israel by Assyrians.
Vs.10 And at the end of three years they took it: even in the sixth year of Hezekiah, that is the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken.

11 And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes:

12 Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them”.
By now Shalmanesser is dead and Sargon is the new king. Let’s cp. II kgs.17:4-5,”And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.
5 Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years”.This was between 723-721 BC.
Going back to chapter 18:13-24, we hear further of some emissaries sent to the king of Judah; “Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only.
19 Also Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made.
20 And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.
21 For he rent Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king: and Jeroboam drave Israel from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin.
22 For the children of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he did; they departed not from them;
23 Until the LORD removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out of their own land to Assyria unto this day.
24 And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof”.
Let’s hear the Great words in reply to Hezekiah from YHVH through the Assyrian Rabushakeh detailing which will later be a spelling when the sabbatical and Jubilee years will commence.
II kgs 18:28-33,”Then Rabshakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews’ language, and spake, saying, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria:
29 Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand:
30 Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.
31 Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present,

and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his cistern:
32 Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuadeth you, saying, The LORD will deliver us. note
33 Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered at all his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?”
37 Then came Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh”.
Hearing those words Hezekiah tore his clothes and set to seek help from YHVH.
II kgs.19:1,”And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD”
Through the prophet Isaiah YHVH replied, in verse 2-7,”And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.
3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
4 It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.
5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.
6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.
7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land”.
But by this time Assyria was in war with Egyptian king of Ethiopian origen.
II kgs.19:8-11,”So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.
9 And when he heard say of Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,
10 Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.
11 Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered?
14 And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.
15 And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.
16 LORD, bow down thine ear, and hear: open, LORD, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the living God.
17 Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands”,
Then the prophet had this for Hezekiah, “Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.
21 This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.
22 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.
23 By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders, and into the forest of his Carmel.
24 I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.
25 Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.
26 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.
27 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me. -Vs 20-27.

In verse 28 of II kgs. 19,”Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest”.
Then the Almighty continues to reaffirm, vs.28-30,”And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.

30 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward”.
These words must should a warning to those who ignore to their peril the statutes of YHVH claiming jubilees and sabbaticals cannot be observed since little is written in the in the scriptures. But brethren,here it is in Torah in black and white.What more evidence is needs for you blind guides.Elohim has given the timeline.
Hezekiah was given the sign as signature that Sargon is coming.Assyria surely attacked in 701 BC which was a sabbatical year(7×7=49) followed by the jubilee year celebration in 700 BC.
Note to know then the biblical jubilees as sabbaticals you need to count by 7s by 7 with the 50th being the 1st year of the next count.
Even one prominent Rabbi seem blind on sabbatical/jubilee cycle.
I’ve said severally the spirit of Elijah must be doing a word in thses last moment of rampart rebellion as stated in Torah Gen.6:3.,”And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
Many lot of mighty men of Nimrod’s stature are Assembling innocent Sheep. Not for eternal life but hell fire.
Many will say they are not following an individual but are there because of faith.
Brethren,faith is not enough without works.Jacob Ben Joseph said so in the book of james.
Spirit of Elijah? Yes!
Mal.4:4-6,’ “Remember the Torah of Mosheh, My servant, which I commanded him in Ḥorĕḇ for all Yisra’ĕl – laws and right-rulings.
5 “See, I am sending you Ěliyah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of יהוה.
6 “And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with utter destruction.”
Now I see many Nephilims raising with fists high to fight.
Gen.6:4 Now,”The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.
5 And יהוה saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And יהוה was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
7 And יהוה said, “I am going to wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the ground, both man and beast, creeping creature and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
8 But Noaḥ found favour in the eyes of יהוה.
Time is limited for this.Less than 25 years to d-day. We read in Moshe that manhas been allowed to do his will for 5880 years since Adam (120×49=5880)=2044 AD. Very soon than you think.
If then 2044 is sabbatical year(2045 is Jubilee year).Then going back to our period,2045 AD-49=1996 AD which was jubilee and it happened to be the start of the last of 120 cycles.
Again if 2044 AD(5880 AM) will be sabbatical), then the following years needs your attention or else you meet what Israel and Judah faced in their rebellion and subsequent deportation to Assyria and Babylon.These years are sabbaticals if you care.2044 AD-7=2037 AD-7=2030-7=2023.And now because we are in 2019,we are in the 4th year of the 120th jubilee cycle and on the 3rd year of the 7th year of a sabbatical in the 6th millennial day.
We read in 2 Peter 3:8,”But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day”.
The clock on the wall clicks to midnight.
Ps.90:4,”
For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night”.
Hear a song of the degrees,Ps.126:1-5,”When יהוה turns back the captivity of Tsiyon, We shall be like dreamers.
2 Then our mouth shall be filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing, Then shall they say among the nations, “יהוה has done great deeds for them.”
3 The YHVH hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4 Turn back our captivity, O יהוה, Like the streams in the South.
5 Those sowing in tears, shall reap with songs of joy”.
That song should be telling you something.Even if you lead the biggest congregation, change and lead then to see and not to loose eternal life.No one will lough at you.Please show deep care to the flock you’re leading who may not be aware the path you are on leads to hell.
Don’t fear to say as David, Ps.120:5,”Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech,

that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!”
Mesech and Kedar are two typically cruel people where Israel was exiled. Mesech are people from the north of eretz Israel and Kedar are Ishmaelites-the bedwins=>meaning blackish,and ashy in colour.
Why were some songs called the song of degrees?
If you have a Companion Bible look at appendix 67 and let Dr.Thirtle call your attention from his work ‘The Old Testament Problems’ published in 1907.
The same was remarked by Dr.John Lightfoot in his book “Old Testament Chronology”who lived between 1602-1675 AD.
When Hezekiah recovered from his sickness ,he said in Is.38:20,” “יהוה, come to save me! And let us sing my songs with stringed instruments all the days of our life in the House of יהוה.” Hezekiah had many of the occurrences that he mentioned in Tanach. That’s why some songs of David reflected the anguish Israel had faced because of their head hardness.
We read in Is.37:30,” “And this shall be the sign for you: This year you eat such as grows of itself, and the second year what springs from that, and in the third year sow and reap, plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them”.
This important sign that helps to know when to celebrate jubilee and sabbatical years was given to Hezekiah that Israel wiil be be attacked.
We must take clear look from verse 28-31 that a remnant will remain to take root and sprout.

II kgs.19:28-30,”Because your rage against Me and your pride have come up to My ears, I shall put My hook in your nose and My bridle in your lips, and I shall turn you back by the way which you came.
29 And this is the sign for you: This year you eat what grows of itself, and in the second year what springs from that, and in the third year sow and reap and plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
30 And the remnant who have escaped of the house of Yehuḏah shall again take root downward, and be fruitful.
31 For out of Yerushalayim comes forth a remnant, and those who escape from Mount Tsiyon – the ardour of יהוה does this.’
Continue on verse and hear YHVH 32-34,”Therefore thus said יהוה concerning the sovereign of Ashshur, ‘He does not come into this city, nor does he shoot an arrow there, nor does he come before it with shield, nor does he build a siege mound against it.

33 By the way that he came, by the same he turns back. And he does not come into this city,’ declares יהוה.

34 And I shall defend this city, to save it for My own sake and for the sake of Dawiḏ My servant.’ ”
When teachers of the law ignore such verses that show how to continue important timelines they are doing a lot of disservice to the flock.
Why don’t they. Because they don’t know.
Somewhere in the study I quoted Malach 4 on the spirit of Elijah being in work today.
One ardent Torah teacher has been pointing Chidren back to the Almighty since early 2000.That man is @Joseph Dumond of sightedmoon.com
Talk to him and you will not be the same again. He teaches Torah as Yehovah said devoid of traditional increnations .
Yehovah gave a biblical calendar for our good starting with the crescent moon.
Ex.12:1-2,”And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying,
2 “This new moon is the beginning of new moons for you, it is the first new moon of the year for you”.
That’s why yehshua warned the Nimrods of our time in Matt.23:23 saying,”Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you tithe the mint and the anise and the cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the Torah: the right-ruling and the compassion and the belief. These need to have been done, without neglecting the others”.
Thank you for your time.
