Daily manna from the Torah by Dr Ketriel Blad


BeHar 32-7

On the mount

Leviticus 25:47 – 26:2

You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the LORD.

Lev. 26:2 NIV

When will the seventh millennium start?

The Eternal says that the seventh day, Shabbat, is His. The Sabbath is the day of the Lord. The seven days of the week are a prophetic sign about the history of the world.

The Talmud teaches (Sanhedrin 97a, 97b), based on Hosea 6:2, Zechariah 14:9, Psalm 90:4 and Psalm 92:0, that the world's history is divided in 2000 years in desolation, 2000 years with Torah,  2000 years of the Messianic age and 1000 years of remission after which the world will be renewed.

This gives us cause for thinking that the Messiah will come 2000 years after his first appearance. When he came for the first time, the world had already been through 4 days of the week, that is, 4000 years. Then, another two days, or 2000 years, were still missing for the day of rest, until the Messianic kingdom Millennium. There is a difference between the Messianic age and the Messianic kingdom.

In Psalm 90:4 and 2 Peter 3:8 it's written: "For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night."Š "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." (NIV)

The first resurrection of the dead will happen after two days, that is, 2000 years after the first coming of the Messiah, as it is written in Hosea 6:2: "After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence." (NIV)

When Yeshua started preaching, around year 27 C.E. (Daniel 9:25-26) he said that the time had come (Mark 1:15, Galatians 4:4). I think he was talking about the 4000 years from Adam and the beginning of the Messianic age.

On November 24 of year 29 C.E. (3790) there was a total eclipse in Israel and soon after that, on December 9 the same year, there was a partial lunar eclipse in which half of the moon turned into blood. Two days of thousand years, that is, 2000 years we come to year 2029 (5790), which corresponds to the year of jubilee, according to the calculations we mentioned in Manna 32-1.

According to prophet Joel 2:30-31 the sun will have to turn dark and the moon turn to blood before the day of the Eternal comes.

With help of astronomical calculation programs we can find future solar eclipses followed by lunar eclipses in which the moon turns red, all visible in Israel. The first one will happen on August 2 of year 2027 (5787) around 1 PM. It will be a total eclipse that will be seen in Morocco, Spain, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Somalia. It will be seen in part, in Africa, Europe, Middle East, Western and Southern Asia. It will be almost total in Jerusalem. The sun will turn to darkness. In that moment, there will be 2000 years since Yeshua started his public service.

Then, there will be three consecutive lunar eclipses visible in Israel. The first one will be on July 6 of year 2028 (5788). It will be barely seen in Jerusalem.

However, on the following year, which will be a sabbatical year, there will be two lunar eclipses in Israel. Around 7 PM on December 31 of year 2028 (5789) there will be a total eclipse seen in Jerusalem in which the moon will turn completely blood-red. On June 26 of year 2029 (5789) there will be an almost total lunar eclipse, the moon will be almost totally turned to blood.

       

The prophet said that the day of the Eternal would come after this phenomenon. This fact also points to year 2029 (5790).

If this calculation is correct it is possible the year 2029 (5790) is the year 6001 after Adam, when the Messianic kingdom will be established on earth.

According to the rabbinical year count it would be on the year 5790, which gives us a difference of 211 years. This difference in years is due to the fact that Rabbis count 210 years of the sons and daughters of Israel in Egypt while the Torah speaks of 430 years (Exodus 12:40), which yields a difference of 220 years (430 – 210 = 220). Besides, the calculation of the period of the Persian Empire is uncertain.

The Jewish year 5790 will begin on September 10 of year 2029.

Will that be the moment of the Messiah's return? I don't know. It's possible that he returns before that to make arrangements for the establishment of the kingdom on that date. The interesting part is that with the counting of the years of jubilee, and the last two millennia since the first coming of the Messiah together with the signs of the sun and the moon, we have three witnesses that speak of the same. They all point to year 2029.

It is also possible that these witnesses don't speak of the beginning of the seventh millennium. That's why I give each one of you the freedom to believe it or not, and the responsibility to keep researching on the truth of these facts.
