Land Rest Year and Jubilee Years. Does Yahweh consider them important? Where is Israel today.

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-010
2nd Day of the 3rd Month of the 5843 years After Creation
This is the 42nd day of the Counting of the Omer

May 19, 2007

Shabbat Shalom Family,

This past week I heard James Dobson interviewing Joel Rosenburg. I was interested in listening to it all but did not have the chance at work. When I went to order the book and CD, I was referred to the Canadian office, because I am from Canada. The Canadian office was not allowed to sell it. When I asked why I notice his resistance to answer, which caused me to dig deeper. After many questions and rephrasing it 5 times I learned that Focus on the Family Canada was not allowed to sell or give away any information which did not speak favorably about Homosexuals or Muslims. The show was about the Muslim Terror strategies for the USA, England and Canada. As I pressed the person on the phone for an answer he said he did not want to incriminate himself.

The show was of interest, but the Canadian laws forbid the discussion of it. How insane have we become. This law is called the Hate law and is also being pushed through the US legislature. Our Christian leaders are not allowed to publicly discuss the threat of the Muslim Jihad, or the threat to society of Homosexual lifestyle. If they do they could be sent to jail or fined or loose their license.
Do you realize what this means? Soon, we will have that famine of the word spoken of in the scriptures. No one will be able to speak up. They will be jailed or as scriptures also say they will be killed. Had I not heard this with my own ears I would be hard pressed to believe it could happen in this great country of Canada.

Those of you in the USA this same type of law is being pushed through your Congress. Get involved and get knowledgeable about this law or very soon you will not be able to speak up. To listen to this broadcast on the Hate Crimes legislation go to

Evil thrives when good men do nothing.

Make sure you read next weeks News Letter to learn where we are exactly in the chronological order of prophecy.
Let your family and friends and brethren know of these things and this letter. Sign them up or review the past issues at or forward this e-mail on. But let them all know some how. Get involved.

Let us now take a moment and review all we have shared as we count the omer.

Beginning with 5843-005 we shared with you how to count the Jubilee years and where in the scriptures Yahweh tells you which year is a Jubilee. We also learned that 1996 was the last Jubilee year.
Next in 5843-006 you were shown why there is a seventy six year difference between the Hebrew Calendar 5767 and the one I am claiming as 5843. You also learned when the year begins in the spring.
In 5843-007 we learned that the Messiah died on a Wed. and not a Fri. We learned that the Millennial years also prove this to be true. We also learned what happened during each of those millennial days in history and that the entrance into the Promised Land was in 2500 AC or 1337 BC, a Jubilee year.

In 5843-008 we learned when the thief on the tree went to paradise. At the same time we learned a great deal about the wave offering which began this count to fifty or Pentecost. Or in other words the First Fruits.

In 5843-009 we saw how the Eighth Day and Pentecost and the Jubilee were all related and how Satan is deceptively trying to take over from Yahweh. We also concluded what happens during the eighth Millennium.

So what does all this mean to you and me living today on this earth at this moment? Who cares? Let me show you some thing else first and then I will answer this question. The question I will answer in this News Letter is just how important is the Jubilee to Yahweh.

We first need to understand how Yahweh thinks concerning these Land Rest Years and Jubilee years.

We read in Daniel 9: 1 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, which was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans; 2 In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolation’s of Jerusalem. This year was 521 BC
This revelation that Daniel has from Jeremiah is found in Jeremiah 25:8 “Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘Because you have not heard My words, 9 behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,’ says the Lord, ‘and Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, against its inhabitants, and against these nations all around, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, a hissing, and perpetual desolation’s. 10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones and the light of the lamp. 11 And this whole land shall be a desolation and an astonishment, and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. 12 ‘Then it will come to pass, when seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldean’s, for their iniquity,’ says the Lord; ‘and I will make it a perpetual desolation.

Babylon was conquered in 537 BC. 70 years earlier was 607 BC But Jerusalem or Judah was attacked by Nebuchadnezzar, starting in 606 when Daniel was captured and the final destruction of Jerusalem taking place 586 BC on the 9th day of the fifth month.

Jeremiah again states this 70 Years in Jeremiah 29:8 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let your prophets and your diviners who are in your midst deceive you, nor listen to your dreams which you cause to be dreamed. 9 For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them, says the Lord. 10 For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.

So Daniel knows the 70 year period is coming to a close. He does not know exactly when that time ends, but he knows it is close. So the beginning of this new prophecy of 70 weeks or 70 shabuwa, (periods of 7 or seventy sevens) is to start when the decree is given out.

Most believe this to be 70 times 7 years. Their reasoning is based on 2 Chronicles 36: 20 And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the kingdom of Persia: 21 To fulfil the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her Sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept Sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.

70 Years! That is 70 broken land rest years. To get 70 land rest years, you have to have 427 years. The assumption that you need 490 years of broken Sabbaths is wrong. One Jubilee cycle times ten. This is an assumption by unlearned men. Each Sabbatical cycle has 8 land rest in them, not 7. One on each of the 7th , 14th , 21st , 28th , 35th , 42nd and 49th years, but the 50th year is also a land rest year. When you add up these years, counting until you get to 70 broken land rest years you arrive at 427 years . In the 490 years there are 80 land rest years.

When we take the time when Jerusalem fell in 586 BC, and we add 427 year to it, we arrive at 1013 BC. This would have been the time during King David’s Rule. Chronologist say that Solomon died in 930 BC after reigning 40 years. 930 plus 40 = 970 and King David ruled 40 years bringing us to 1010 BC. Very close to our date for broken land rest years.
Does Yahweh consider these Land Rest Years and Jubilee Years lightly? No, I think not. Nor should we. They are very important to Him. So much so that He removed Judah from the land for 70 years to give the land it’s rest which it had not had while Judah was on the land.

Who is this addressed too? This is important to know as most people think it is irrelevant because it only applied to Israel of old. It is addressed to Israel and to Judah. It is applicable for all time.
Who is Israel today? Israel is the United States, England, Australia and Canada, as well as Norway, Sweden, France, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Iceland, South Africa, and other countries of North Western Europe. Judah is represented by the State of Israel and the Jewish people. So this curse is applicable to these countries and these peoples.

From At the Western Wall today (March 22, 2001) and in yeshivas and synagogues and religious schools throughout Israel the sound of shofar blasts, the singing of Hebrew Psalms and cries and tears and wails of repentance were heard in response to a declaration by the Gedolei Yisrael (Great Ones of Israel) formally recognizing the beginning of the “time of Jacob’s trouble.” ‘

Thursday, March 22, 2001 (the 27th of Adar, 5761), was earlier designated the time to celebrate Rosh Chodesh Nisan, (the first day of Nisan), since the first day of Nisan actually falls on Sunday. Ordinarily Rosh Chodesh Nisan is designated a Yom Kippur Katan (a small Yom Kippur).

So over the past 24 hours the Jewish community here in Israel and throughout the world has united in prayer. What is unusual about this year’s Yom Kippur Katan is that in light of the 6-month-old Palestinian uprising which has claimed the lives of 57 Israelis, including more than 20 through the direct involvement and participation of Yasser Arafat’s Palestinian Authority, the rabbis have added the designation as “a time of Jacob’s trouble.”

Further it is signed by ALL 27 of the leading Orthodox and Chassidic sages, both the “maranan verabonon” (masters and teachers) and the “gedolei ha-Torah vehaChassidus (Torah sages among the Chassidut).”

The declaration begins and is formally designated:

Jacob is often used to denote Israel. The title of Israel was passed down to the son of Jacob, Joseph, and to his son Manasseh and Ephraim.
Some will no doubt be saying that all this Jubilee stuff and all these Holy Days and counting of the omer all belong to the those Israelites. This all has nothing to do with me.
Yahweh made the promise to Abraham and to his seed. Yahweh did not change His mind and begin to work with another group of people some where else in the world. Yahweh chose this group. Abraham’s descendants. They did not chose Him. The ten tribes of Israel disappeared and we only know of the Jews today. The Jews today are not the ten tribes of Israel.
So who is Israel and who is responsible for teaching Yahweh’s Jubilee and Holy Days.

Cutting to the chase in Yair Davidiy’s book Origin, we read; Britain is dominated by Ephraim. An “Ephrati” in Hebrew is someone from Ephraim and the name also implies aristocrat and in Britain the Aristocratic social principle still applies. The word “England” means “Angle-land” and the Angles were also known as Aegli (meaning “bull-calf” in Hebrew,) which was a nickname for Ephraim, Jeremiah 31:17,18. The English are still represented by John Bull. The word for England in French “Angleterre”, means “corner of the world” and Britain is at the end of the earth, in islands, sea-farers, did rule over other peoples (as predicted of Ephraim), and did possess strategic “gates” of international importance. Ephraim is also amongst the “daughters” of Britain such as Australia, which is the land of “Sinim” or the “Great South Land” prophesied by Isaiah 49:8. Other countries belonging to Ephraim include New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa. In addition to this many descendants of Ephraim dwell in the USA which however is dominated by Manasseh.

Manasseh’s children became known as Machir [haMahir] by the Assyrians. Later they were called Amyrgian Scyths [Amyrgio Scuthae], as well as, [Margiana, Marycaei, Maruca] during the Assyrian Captivity. As time marched on they became known as Gimirri Umurgah at around 522-486 BC by the Babylonians and after they were freed by the Babylonians and Medes. Still, later as these people migrated to northwestern Europe they were called Umerga – Amyrgio – Umerugi [Saxon Germany], Mercian Saxons [England], Maruka – Skati Maruka Abis Maurungani around 700 CE. Still, later on some were known as Ap-Meryk – Son of Machir- until in 1470 we have in ancient records Richard Ameryk and other records still with the title America – Land of Machir 1451-1512.

Taken from Yair Davidiy’s book The Tribes.

One of the meanings of “Machir” in Hebrew is selling or the principle of Capitalism. The USA is dominated by Manasseh. Ephraim was to become greater before Manasseh (Genesis 48:20) who would then become the paramount power in the world. This is hinted at in the reference of Balaam to “Unicorns” (Numbers 24:8) and the Unicorn, says a Midrash, is the symbol of Manasseh. The symbol of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh together) was a picture representing Egypt. The USA does use such a sign (the Pyramid) as an official symbol on the Great Seal of the USA. The USA through its enjoyment of mineral resources, agricultural plenty, wealth, and power fulfills the blessings promised to descendants of Joseph. By its international policies and aid to others the USA fulfills the promise of Abraham to become a great and mighty nation in order to do justice and judgement (Genesis 18:19).

France is dominated by Reuben. The symbols of France and the French include a cock, the fleur-de-lis, and the sun. These are linked to Reuben. Reuben inherited part of Israel adjoining the Euphrates River. The Ribuari (Franks) settled in Gaul. “Ribuari” means Reubeni. They were also known as the Rubi. Sons of Reuben were Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi (Genesis 49:6). These gave their names to different peoples who settled in France. The meaning of their names denotes something of the French character: Hanoch = Education, Inauguration, Ceremony. Phallu = Distinction. Hezron = Provicial Ruler, Peasant. Carmi = Vinyard. Other characteristics associated with Reuben such as romantic inclinations and impetuous instability are also attributed to the French. The French were the first to achieve greatness and fulfilled the role prophesied for Reuben.

Ireland is dominated by Simeon with many from Dan and elements of Ephriam.
Belgium is pertinent to Benjamin. Belgium received its name from Belgae. Bela was a son of Benjamin and this name in ancient Hebrew could be pronounced as ” Belagh”.
Holland pertains to Zebulon as proven by its dependance on protection from flooding with its population dwelling on the “Shores of the Sea”. The names of peoples who settled in Holland (such as “Sabalingoi”) recall Zebulon and clans of Zebulon. The traditional Symbol of Holland was a ship which wasalso the symbol of Zebulon.

Denmark is the nation of the Danes, descendants of Dan.
Norway was colonized by Naphtalite Huns and other groups of Naphtali.
Sweden was founded by Goths and Svea or Suiones. The Goths were named after Gad and the Suiones after Shuni the son of Gad. Other groups associated with Sweden and the Goths have names similar to those of clans of Gad. The Arodi of Gad became the Harudi and Hreadgoths of Scandinavia. The Areli of Gad became the Erules of Sweden.
Finland was settled by peoples from the Israelite tribes of Gad, Simeon and especially Issachar. The earliest traditions of Finland repeat the tradition that they were desceded from the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.

Switzerland is made up of Issachar as well as some of the other tribes of Israel.
To learn more in great detail I suggest you read the following site.

So this should now be very clear as to whom these blessings and curses from Leviticus apply. To the richest nation ever blessed on the face of the earth, just as Yahweh said He would to Abraham, now comes the curse that will destroy her for not following and obeying Him. These things are to be applied to the United States of America, Manasseh and to England and her colonies, Ephraim!
This will lead into another study at a later time which will show you definitively, in more detail who is Ephraim and Who is Mannaseh, as well as the other tribes of Israel. It will be during this study that I will also show you according to the bible and not speculations, who is Babylon. Many in the Messianic community have jumped on a doctrine with out checking the details of this teaching. That is that the United States is Babylon. At the same time they also say that the USA is Ephraim. This is hypocrisy. The USA can not be both. But this wrong teaching is going to lead so many to worship the false Messiah is the main reason I want to show this in detail. But we will leave this for a future study.

We have now shown you that these Jubilees are important to Yahweh. We have also shown you who these things are directed to.

Next week we will address the penalties for not Obeying.

Shalom Brethren
