A prophetic look at Israel, Pentecost and the Last day outpouring; an outline.
Pentecost was the 50th day after the Father raised his firstborn from the dead, namely Jesus.
One key feature of this is that 50 days after the first born was raised, He poured out His Spirit on the Church.
The Jubilee is a celebration to take place on the 50th year after Israel came into the Land.
The Jubilee Year for the Nation of Israel is 1997. The state of Israel came into being in 1948, 1998 will be the 50th anniversary but 1997 is the 50th year, the Year of Jubilee!. Figuratively speaking, The Lord raised Israel, also His firstborn, from the dead in 1948.
If you observe the Jewish calendar, the Year of Jubilee will begin September 14 of 1996! This makes 1996/97 The Jubilee Year.
So that 50 years after the first born was raised, He will be pouring out His Spirit on the Church again! The prophetic element in this must include the fact that this leaves a 3 and one half ; year interval till the spring (Passover) of the year 2000. The year that many look for his return, and that many missions agencies target for completion of the Great Commission.
Other points of Interest on the 1996/97 Jubilee Year:
The 1996/97 jubilee year is when Israel is celebrating Jerusalem 3000, commemorating the 3000th year since David took the city. Consider David as a type of Messiah and Jerusalem as a type of the Church and this speaks of Christ coming to His Church. It is a foreshadowing of revival. And Jubilee is a type of revival!
The 1996/97 jubilee year is also the 2000th anniversary of the Birth of Jesus, given the most probable date of 5 B. C.; on the feast of tabernacles or there about.
The 1996/97 jubilee year must also mark the beginning of the new millenium. It is the start of the 7th thousand year period in God's creation. It is the 7th day of his week, spoken prophetically as the 7th day and also as the 3rd day. The 3rd day since Jesus birth.
The 1996/97 jubilee year had been hailed by the prophets. Several major prophetic voices have indicated that God is doing something special for 1997; Bob Jones, Bill Hamon, and Larry Randolph.
The passage quoted below from Leviticus 25 is often taken to mean that God instructed Israel to celebrate a Jubilee every 50 years. It could just as well be interpreted to mean that God instructed Israel to celebrate the Jubilee only once. Only on the 50th year after entering the Land, were they to celebrate. The bible does not record any occasion where Israel actually obeyed this statute in her history.
The 1996/97 jubilee year could well be the single fulfillment of the Jubilee statute.
