How important are these days the Shamat-release and the Shemittah-release of the Yovel-Jubilee? Following are the examples from scriptures of how important this Torah is to YHVH. The reading of Yirmeyahu-Jeremiah chapter 25 tells us that there is going to be a punishment on Yisrael-Judah and in Divre Hayamin Bet-Second Chronicles 36:21, to fulfill the word of YHVH in the mouth of Yirmeyahu-Jeremiah until had enjoyed the land, the Shabbats all the days of the desolation it kept the Shabbats until were fulfilled seventy years. Judah-Yisrael went into captivity because they did not keep these days the land Shabbat Shabbaton, Shamat-release and Yovel-Jubilee. YHVH is great of patience and mercy Divre Hayamin Bet-Second Chronicles 36:15-16, And sent YHVH the Elohim of there fathers to them by the hand of His messengers rising early and sending, for He had pity on His people and on His dwelling place, but they mocked my messengers of Elohim. The wording of scripture implies by circumstances that Yisrael-Judah have at times kept the Sabbatical year and the Yovel-Jubilee. One example, Yeshayahu-Isaiah 37:30 and Melechim Bet-Second Kings 19:27, both of these scriptures are of the same event, and concerns Sennacherib, the king of Assyria. Verse 30, this shall be a sign to you-Judah, you shall eat this year (the year of release) what grows of itself and the second year (the Yovel-Jubilee) what springs of itself.
When Yisrael comes to this time in the land called the Yovel-Jubilee, Hebrew 3104-the blowing of the two silver trumpets signal the beginning of the Yovel-Jubilee the 50th year on Yom Kippurim. The shophar brings in the seventh day, the year of release on Yom Kippurim. The Yovel means literally, the blowing of the silver trumpets, following the shophar blowing at the moed of Yom Kippurim. Yisrael and the nations have arrived at the Yovel-Jubilee by counting the seven sevens of years -seven years of release equal 49 years plus one and brings Yisrael and all nations to the Yovel-Jubilee, the 50th year. The eighth-day, 50th year, the year of release-shemittah, Hebrew 8059 remission of debts and suspension of labor, release, the prime root shamat H8058 to fling down, to begin to let alone, desist, remit, discontinue, release. Devarim-Deuteronomy 15:1-2-3-9 and 31:10 explains the release-shemittah of individual debts and this word shemittah is recorded in these scriptures only and is YHVH's Shemittah. Shemot-Exodus 23:10, six years you may sow your land and gather its produce, verse 11 And the seventh you shall let it rest-shamat H8058 prime root, and lie fallow and the needy of your people shall eat what grows of its own, and what they leave the animals of the land may eat. Vayiqra-Leviticus 25:18-22, verse 18 if we keep these Torah we will dwell in the land in safety, 19 the land will yield its fruit and you will eat your fill and dwell there in safety, verse 20 and if you say, “What shall we eat in the seventh year, since we shall not sow nor gather in our produce?” Verse 21 Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years. Verse 22 And you shall sow in the eighth year and eat old produce until the ninth year; until its produce comes in, you shall eat the old. This verse is saying plant in the eighth year, this is possible for the Hebrew year is from Aviv to Adar and the Yovel is from Yom Kippurim to Yom Kippurim, the ending at Yom Kippurim leaves time in the fall, after the Chag-Festival Of Sukkot for the planting of the winter grain or small grain such as barley and winter wheat and they would be harvested in the spring of the ninth year. And the regular planting then for spring would take place with a harvest before the following Chag. Vayiqra-Leviticus 25:1-7 expands on this seventh year-a Shabbat Shabbaton for the land. Verse 8 then begins to explain the blowing of the silver trumpets-Yovel-Jubilee the 50th year (the eighth day), and verse 10 is the first time Yovel is used. The translators have improperly translated two words in verse 9. The word “trumpet” has been mistranslated and should be shophar, likewise, Jubilee should be teruah a loud rejoicing. Verse 10 contains a most astonishing passage: every man shall return to his possession (esp. of land) and each of you shall turn back to his family.
It is possible that the years of release and the Yovel maybe traced by the events recorded in scripture, such as Nehemiah 5, where the land had been sold and the Yisraelite brothers were paying usury (Shemot-Ex 22:25 not to be done) to other Yisraelite brothers. Along with this we read also that the land was in a famine, and if these Torah-instructions had been kept, this would not have occurred. Each time there is recorded an instance of famine in the eretz-land; the people were not keeping the year of release-Shamat. Certainly therefore the Yovel was not being kept. There is indication in some historical writings that certain areas of the land were keeping this Torah, for they had grain and rain. These events take place on the Yovel: The shemittah-release of the sowing of the land. The shemittah-release of harvesting. The shemittah-release of debts to the people and those who have joined themselves to Yisrael. Yisrael will lead the nations into complying with this shemittah-release, which will cause the end of the banking system and the buying and selling of land and houses, “with exception,” according to scripture. Vayiqra-Leviticus 25:10, and you shall Kadosh the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a Yovel unto you; and you shall return every man unto his possession, H.272 especially of land, and every man shall return to his family. Devarim-Deuteronomy 32:8 when the Most High divided the inheritance to the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam: He set up the boundaries of the peoples according to the heavenly Malachim-Messenger of (YHVH) Elohim. This is according to the LXX and the Dead Sea Scrolls, for certainly Yisrael was not, this time is (pre-flood). Yeshayahu-Isaiah 13:14 and it shall be as a gazelle banished (or driven away and as in migration) and none collect or assemble every man to his people and they each one shall look in flight fleeing to his land. Yirmeyahu-Jeremiah 50:16 Says the same with the addition of cutting of the sower of Babylon-teachers of religions. Who are left ? Only the teachers of Torah from Moshe.
Since the duration is one year in the Yovel, many will not return to the places where they were at the time of the sounding of the silver trumpets. This I don’t believe will happen until Yisrael is established in the land according to Yechezkel-Ezekiel 39:21-29. The nations will see and the Torah will spread and be honorable in all lands Yoel-Joel 2:26-27. Think of what will happen to all the systems of commerce in this world and the social systems that have developed, they will fall in a heap as people return to their families and the land is divided accorded to Elohim. YHVH has not forced His Torah on any peoples, so man will in the end have to choose to become like Elohim or be a part of the nations of the adamah-red clay.
Now a look at Yoel-Joel 1:11 this whole chapter implies that Yisrael has forgotten the Torah of the Shamat-release and Shemittah-Jubilee for the grain has failed in the land. This chapter relates to the time of Yisrael back in the land after the days of vengeances. The forgetting of the land Shabbats and the Yovel bring on Yisrael the Yom of YHVH-Day of YHVH, for no longer will Yisrael profane My Kadosh Name anymore Yechezkel-Ezekiel 39:7, Vayqra-Leviticus 25:17-18 if we keep Torah, but if not?
In this time of the Rabbis, it would be very hard upon the Jewish Yisraelites to have two years of rest for the land the Shamat-release and Shemittah-Yovel. One other false teaching of the Rabbis, is that it would be to hard on the people to pay three tithes every third year. In both of these Torah instructions Devarim-Deuteronomy 14:22 first tithe and verse 23 second tithe and verses 28-29 third tithe this verse 29 assures us that YHVH will not leave us without the ability to keep these Torah instructions. And concerning the Yovel in Vayiqra-Leviticus 25:20 And when you say what shall we eat in the seventh year for we may not sow nor gather our increase. Then I have commanded (it has already been done for us) my blessing on you in the sixth year and it will make the increase for three years and you shall sow in the eighth and shall eat of the old crop until the ninth year until the coming of its crop you shall eat of the old. (reference Interlinear) And Shemot-Exodus 34:23-24, three times in the year shall all your males appear before the face of the Adonai YHVH Elohim Yisrael, also Devarim-Deuteronomy 16:16. For I will dispossess nations from before you and you will make broad your territory and no one shall covet your land as you go up before the face of YHVH your Elohim three times in the year.
Shemot-Exodus 34:26 The first of your first fruits of your ground you shall bring to the house of YHVH your Elohim. And shall say Devarim-Deuteronomy 26:1-11 and verses 12-15 When you finish the first and second tithes then the third year and the sixth year have a third tithe in each of the seven years, the seventh year is the year of Release and the land Shabbat. The land Shabbat, the seventh year of each of the seven, sevens plus one equales fifty-50 the year of the Yovel these are all to be land Shabbats and the fiftieth when every man returns to his land or nation. These land Shabbats are so important that YHVH has called the disreguard for them, "to profane My Name". So important are these land Shabbaths that the understanding by examples are recorded for our "understanding" in Yirmeyahu-Jeremiah 34:8, read through verse :22, and in Yehchezkel-Ezekiel 39:7 in both of these scriptures the word in Hebrew is "chalal H2490 to disolve", translated as pollute or profane. This would mean that in the seventh year of the week of days when Yisrael is back in the land dwelling in peace, they profane YHVH's Name by not keeping this Torah instruction of the seventh year of release-liberty to all, in the land. Read the rest of Yehchezkel-Ezekiel 39 and one other scripture Yehchezkel-Ezekiel 24:13 confirms to us when YHVH will at last dwell among His people Yisrael.
These things have to happen because of the Yovel: Yeshayahu-Isaiah 2:4, All weapons are beaten into plowshares and Yisrael returns to the things of creation learning the kadosh way. Joel 3:10, if tools of farming are made into swords and spears and they ride on horses,Yechezkel-Ezekiel 38:15-39:9,and on camels, Zecharyah-Zechariah 14:15, then mechanized transportation and weapons would have disappeared, 2nd Schmuel-2nd Samuel 1:27, Micha 5:16 and Yeshayahu-Isaiah 43:17.
