Dan Goodwin ~ God’s Final Jubilee
2520 are the number of days in the Tribulation Period, Daniel’s 70th week. Dan’s teaching in his seminar tomorrow revolves around this topic. The theme of Revelation 4:1 is the rapture. The church is not mentioned again after Revelation 4:1. Revelation 19:11 is one of Dan’s favorite verses. This is the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the Tribulation Period, at the end of Daniel’s 70th week. Jesus rides a white horse and returns to the planet earth and to Jerusalem to set up the millennium. Christ is the first fruits. He rose bodily. The rapture is the main harvest. After that, is the gleaning. The gleaning are the saved people on earth after the Tribulation Period.
God’s Final Jubilee- The Jubilee is intertwined in the seven feasts of the Bible. The seven feasts are in Leviticus, chapter 23: 1)Passover, 2)Unleavened Bread, 3)First fruits, 4)Pentecost, 5)Feast Of Trumpets, 6)Day Of Atonement (Yom Kippur), 7)Feast Of Tabernacles (Type of the millennium). Feasts 5, 6 and 7 are yet to be fulfilled. Dan believes the Feast Of Trumpets is the rapture, to be fulfilled during the new moon in the fall. He believes Jesus will return at the end of the Tribulation Period on the Day of Atonement. The Jubilee takes place on the Day Of Atonement. This happens every 49 years, and the 50th year is a Jubilee.
There are three major Sabbaths in the Bible: 1)The seventh day Sabbath. 2)The seven year Sabbath. The Israelites were not to plant on every 7th year. Slaves were to be freed. (For 490 years, the Jews did not keep the Sabbath rest. The 70 year Babylonian captivity returned all 70 years back to God for the land to rest). 3)Jubilee- Seven of the seven year cycles made 49 years. Every 49 years there was the big Sabbath called a Jubilee. The trumpets blew, all the slaves were set free, all debts were forgiven, and all property and land went back to the original owners. The Jubilee is a reset button or a fresh start. Some Jews believe 1967 was a Jubilee year. Dan believes they may be right. That would make 1917 a Jubilee year as well. General Allenby took Jerusalem from the Muslim Turks, leading to the Balfour Declaration in 1917. The Balfour Declaration led to Israel becoming a nation in 1948. *** The Jews in Israel are the only nation to lose their sovereignty and come back! *** In 1967 Israel was blessed in the six day war. Israel received property in both 1917 and 1967. Fifty years from 1967 is 2017. Jesus Christ is coming back on a Jubilee year, on the Day Of Atonement, and taking back what is His. It could be 2016 or 2017.
Dan said he is 110% Pre Tribulation rapture in his eschatological beliefs. Jesus is coming. Harvest is in the fall.
The Jubilee started in 1500 B.C. with Moses. The next Jubilee will be the 70th Jubilee.
Dan has a real urgency about the end times and the return of Jesus Christ. In my opinion, however, he should be careful about date setting in reference to the Jubilees and other dates. False prophet Harold Camping fell into this trap in his book “1994,” whereby he proposed a similar scenario of dates, ending up with Christ’s return in the fall of the year 1994, around the Day Of Atonement. He considered 1994 to be a Jubilee of Jubilees, or the fiftieth Jubilee. He was obviously wrong.
