The 120th Jubilee

I recently watched a very interesting video by Dewey Bruton discussing Daniel’s timeline for the return of the Messiah. There were several problems with it since it sets dates for events associated with the Tribulation implying we are already in the 70th week of Daniel. This is certainly not the case because the Antichrist has not been revealed by confirming a 7-year covenant with Israel (Daniel 9:27). But the Bruton presentation was very instructive about feasts of Israel and it did include some details that deserve closer study…

Bruton pointed out in his video that we are coming up on the 120th Year of Jubilee. Isaiah 46:10 says that God has declared, “the end from the beginning” (NKJ) and so we should expect to find clues about the end of the age in Genesis. The Hebrew sages expect there to be 6,000 years of mankind’s struggle followed by 1,000 years of rest with the Messiah. This is reflected in their calendar which starts at when they believe was the beginning of creation. The current Hebrew year is 5770 so even by the Jewish calendar, we are coming up on 6,000 years of history. Of course God did not make it possible for us to determine the exact year of creation so there is sure to be some years missing in the Hebrew estimate of when creation happened.

It is reasonable to expect there to be 7,000 years of history based on the pattern God established in the Creation… “For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day” (Exodus 20:11). This is especially significant when you consider that “with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8).

Genesis 6:3 provides the timing of God pouring out His wrath in judgment of the earth, “the LORD said, ‘My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.’” While this is understood to refer to the flood, it may also establish a pattern that has meaning for God’s next judgment of the earth. Bruton applies this 120-year period to the cycle of Jubilees that God established. The Year of Jubilee occurred every 50 years and involved the land of Israel being returned to the original owners that God established. If we are coming up on 6,000 years of history, it is interesting to note that we are also coming up on the 120th Jubilee (120 x 50 = 6,000 years).

Bruton believes that the 120th Jubilee will occur in 2017. He bases that on a pattern of the key events that established Israel. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 ended the centuries-long rule of the Ottoman Empire over the land of Israel and laid the foundation for establishing “a national home for the Jewish people” which became the state of Israel. Fifty years later in 1967, Israel took over control of Jerusalem as a result of the Six-Day War. The fact that this war was concluded in six days attests to God being involved since it is tied to God’s work of creation.

So if 1917 and 1967 were the 118th and 119th Jubilees, then the 120th is coming up soon in 2017. This is amazingly close to the 2018 year I had come up with from two other completely different approaches to estimating the end of the age; see my blog on Date Setting Coincidences.

Unlike Burton who doesn’t appear to have a pre-Tribulation view of the Rapture, I’m excited about the seven-year Tribulation ending in 2017 or 2018. This means that the Tribulation could begin this year or next and thus we are on the very threshold of the Rapture. Let’s see, Rosh HaShanah in 2010 will start on Thursday, the 9th of September… be ready, we are in the zone!


  1. 1 day = 24 hours

    6 days = 144 hours

    A day for a year in prophecy would then show:

    6,000 years (days) = 144,000 hours

    It's time - Great post by the way - We must begin thinking like the Centurion NOW in Matthew 8.

  2. I discovered some shocking things on 3/12/2010 while exploring earthquake faults on Google maps (satellite)-view the screen shot, then go to maps and look for your self. God wrote it everywhere.

    Bear, ram, and Goat of the book of Daniel and revelation, right next to each other.

    Your thoughts are welcome:

  3. Here is the best teaching I have seen on this subject, on youtube for all who are seeking to find. It's called Daniel's Time Line.

    Bless You my brothers, Your Sister Cynthia

  4. Scott do you have any more to say on the subject? Greatly enjoy your blogs.


  5. Hello.
    The 6000 years will end year 2028.

    These 6000 years are divided into 2000-2000-2000
    or 40 jubiles- 40- 40

    The last 2000 years or 40 jubilees started when Messiah read from Isaiah 61 -the jubilee sermon.

    Many have understood the 6000 years or 120 jubilees ,but many are to early with the end of them.

    The Kingdom will come after 6000 years and Yeshua will rule from the literal Jerusalem

  6. I personally do not prescribe to a Pre-Tribulation Rapture (I just don't see it anywhere ins scripture) but on my birthday Jan 9, 2014, I was awaken at 4:00 am with a voice saying "Find out when the Woman in Revelation 12 - Clothed with he sun, the moon at her feet and crown of 12 stars can bee seen in the heavens. Well i git to work and others apparently have found this, This sign appears over Jerusalem in the constellation Virgo the day after the Feast of Trumpets Sept 23, 2017.

    Many are equating this to a rapture but I am saying this is the Birthing of Messiah in his remnant - the true bridge. See Isaiah 7:14, Micah 5, Zech 3, Isaiah 66; Joel 2:28+, Hosea 6:1-3...

    1260 day exactly from this date is the Special Sabbath of Parah (Red Heifer Sacrifice to purify the priests) March 5, 2021. The two witness (two olive trees and two candlesticks) end their testimony and are cover come. Who are the prists being purfied? Maybe those who will rule and reign with Jesus Christ?

  7. The 6000 years will end year 2028.

    The 120 jubilees are divided into 40-40-40

    Its important to have the correct jubileecycle.

  8. The 6000 years will end year 2028.

    It is important to understand the correct jubileecycle.

  9. The 6000 years will end year 2028.
    The last 2000 years or 40 jubilees started when Yeshua read from Isaiah 61 - the jubileesermon.

  10. The 6000 years will end year 2028.

    It is 2000 years from Yeshua read from Isaiah 61 , in a jubilee.


    Irs important to understand the correct jubileecycle.

    Year 2028 is 6000 years from Adam.

    1. The year of the Messiah’s birth was in the year -2 or 3bc with a conjunction of Jupiter and Regulus on the second day of the seventh month. The actual birthday of the Messiah was fourteen days before at the conjunction of Venus and Mercury. The Magi from the East observed all these signs and visited the child about the time of the conjunction of Regulus and Jupiter.
      The Messiah began his ministry in a 4000 th Jubile year Luke4:16-21 in the year 28ad at the age of thirty. The year -2 plus 30 is 28ad.
      Go back 4000 years from 28ad to the year -3972 or 3973bc, to the first day New Moon of the seventh Hebrew month which begins a Civil year. On this day there is an amazing sign with the Sun and Jupiter on the horizon as viewed approximately from the spot where Saul was blinded on the road to Damascus. The sign is seen with the Sun and Jupiter having hold of the left arm of a scorpion in the constellation of Scorpio. This year follows what would be a Jubile and is the first day of fifty years, and the day before the first week of the first month begins.
      Going forward 1656 years from the year-3972 to the year of the flood in -2316 the second month, 17 th day the Sun eclipses Jupiter as viewed from Jerusalem. The following day the Moon is showered by water being poured out of a vase in Aquarius.
      Going forward in time 794 years to the year -1522 or 1523bc is a Jubile year that began in the year -1523, or 1524bc. On Nissan 16 the morning of the Israelites marching out of Egypt, at the third hour of the day the Sun and Jupiter conjunct. On the last day of Unleavened bread which was the 21 st day the Israelites were encamped on Nuweiba Beach on the shore of the Gulf of Aquaba. That night when the 10mile wide sea was parted and the Israelites crossed on dry ground the whole night the Moon entered the mouth of a fish. While the Israelites were crossing on the sea bed the Moon travelled in the gut of the fish. Immediately the Moon passed the end of the gut shortly after first light the sea returned to normal.
      Going forward three and a half years past 28ad to 35ad in the first month on the 14 th day was the Passover which also happened to be April the 14 th. On the morning of the 14 day at the 3 rd hour when the Messiah was nailed to the cross, the Moon approached the scales of Libra and turned a full blood red right on the cross of the scales. The eclipse occurred from the third hour till the sixth hour midday. This blood moon remained unbeknown to all who witnessed the crucifixion that day for the moon was well below the horizon. The sign was not for them but for us who are living at the end of time! Note, The Passover occurs on a Monday on the Papal calendar, that makes the Sabbath to occur on a Tuesday, but the true Sabbath can only be found on the Lunar Solar Calendar determined by the two lights in heaven, the Sun and Moon.
      The wonder in the heavens mentioned in Revelation 12 which occurs on September 23 2017 occurs on the Second day of the seventh month, not a Jubile year nor a land rest. The child was born fourteen days before, represented by Jupiter in the belly of the woman in the constellation of Virgo. The gestation period was exactly 294 days, 42 weeks. The fourteen days allows for the child to be circumcised on the eighth day with six days for the wound to heal.
      Going forward from 28ad add 2000 years which is forty Jubile’s to the year 2028, the six thousandth year and a Jubile. In the seventh month on the 10 th day of the month is the day of Atonement On this day in last minutes of the day at sunset, the Sun and Jupiter representing the Father and the Son are exactly in alignment with the heart of the woman as she prepares herself for the marriage of the Messiah with his bride, purifying herself in readiness for the wedding feast.
      The above signs may be seen when using the program Stellarium, Ideally use the version 0.12.4 recommended.

  12. A good study. We can know much more as the promised book of truth is open here at the end of time. HE's coming shortly and I pray that many will repent and come to the LORD. is written by the servant of Matt 24:46
