God is very precise in everything He does. When he created the heavens and earth, He also created lights in the sky to “…serve as signs to mark seasons, and days and years,…” (Genesis 1:14). He also dictated to Moses in Leviticus 23 the appointed feasts, which are still followed today by many.
The Bible is filled with prophetic appointed times as well. The prophet Daniel and Apostle John for example were given very specific times for events that will occur. It’s no coincidence that prophetic events that have occurred also followed His appointed times.
In 1967, which many believe to be a Jubilee Year as prescribed in Leviticus 25, Israel for the first time in 2000 years claims back the Temple Mount (Mt. Zion) in Jerusalem. Interestingly in only 6 days of war with the 7th day for “…rest, a day of sacred assembly.” (Leviticus 23:3). This liberation also took place just two days before the Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost (June 13th – 15th 1967).
This year (2017 Gregorian, 5777 Hebrew) is also believed by many (including myself) to be a Jubilee year. It also marks the 50th (Jubilee) anniversary of Israel’s possession of their given land. Feast of Weeks 2017 will be May 30th – June 1st, just 3 days before the anniversary of the 6 day war (also of note, the Gregorian calendar lines up June 2017 day dates exactly with 1967). There’s even more…
In a previous post I mentioned the current House Bill to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Av-iv to Jerusalem (S.11 – “To recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, to relocate to Jerusalem the United States Embassy in Israel, and for other purposes’). While there has not been much in the media about this as of late, there is a reason that some may not know about. On December 1, 2016 former President Obama signed the ‘Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995’ which has been signed by each president going back to it’s origin in an effort to postpone relocating the US Embassy every 6 months. This last waiver will expire on May 31, right during this year’s Feast of Weeks and just prior to the anniversary of reunification of Jerusalem in Israel. Let’s remember one of God’s decrees for the year of Jubilee: “…each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan.” (Leviticus 25:10).
This is a major convergence of events folks so keep an eye. Appointed times, anniversaries, current end time events that are happening all around us as we approach the return of our Lord Christ Jesus.
As written in Matthew 25 be ready when the bridegroom arrives like the wise ones who kept extra oil for their lamps. Stay in the Word, stay close to Jesus through the Holy Spirit, spread the good news of The Gospel to everyone you can and “…keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” (Matthew 25:13).
