I have been struggling to understand why Netanyahu Government is harming Israels democracy (Judical reform). Perhaps the answer may be that Israel is preparing for a future conflict with Iran. It’s normal to limt democracy during war, that’s what may be going on.

The end of the year as it relates to the jubilee cycle and the release of slaves is at tabernacle’s

Deuteronomy 31:10-11

10Then Moses commanded them, saying, “At the end of every seven years, at the time of the year of the release of debts, at the Feast of Booths, 11when all Israel comes to appear before the LORD your God at the place which He will choose, you shall read this Law before all Israel [b]so that they hear it.

It is the turn on the year as stated in

Exodus 34:22

22And you shall celebrate the Feast of Weeks, that is, the first fruits of the wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering at the turn of the year.

What happens at that appointed time of release, see

Deuteronomy 15:1-2

“At the end of every seven years you shall [a]grant a release of debts. 2And this is the regulation for the release of debts: every creditor is to forgive what he has loaned to his neighbor; he shall not require it of his neighbor and his brother, because the LORD’S release has been proclaimed.

And what else happens? Also freedom from slavery

Deuteronomy 15:12

12“If your fellow countryman, a Hebrew man or woman, is sold to you, then he shall serve you for six years, but in the seventh year you shall set him [j]free.

The 49th year is a special year! Not only are you released of all debts, and freed from slavery/captivity, but you are also to return to your inheritance, in the 50th year, See below

Leviticus 25: 8-11

8‘You are also to count off seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven Sabbaths of years, that is, forty-nine years. 9You shall then sound a ram’s horn [b]abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall sound a horn all through your land. 10So you shall consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim [c]a release throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, [d]and each of you shall return to his own property, [e]and each of you shall return to his family. 11You shall have the fiftieth year as a jubilee

At the end of every 7 years at the end of every 7th year, a release from debt and slavery is enacted. The time of this release is at the feast of tabernacles “at the turn/end of the year”. In the 7 year at the 7th sabbatical year, it is a special year.

the 49th year is a special year. Not only is debt forgiven and slavery abolished but you may also return to your inheritance. This year is proclaimed and consecrated on the day atonement.


This is why the final message in Haggai, comes to the faithful believers of this era on the 7th day of tabernacle’s. It is Haggai 2:1-9. It marks the beginning of the final restoration of ALL things. It comes immediate preceding the year of Jubilee

Be prepared and after the events of Haggai 2:21 1/2-23 occur, read Haggai 2:1-9 it is a message for those today that comes at the turn of the year

‘I am going to shake the heavens and the earth. 22And I will overthrow the thrones of kingdoms and destroy the power of the kingdoms of the [v]nations; and I will overthrow the chariots and their riders, and the horses and their riders will go down, every one by the sword of another.’ 23‘On that day,’ declares the LORD of armies, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will make you like a [w]signet ring, for I have chosen you,’” declares the LORD of armies.

Please pray for the sick and elderly, mistreated and bullied, those who are involuntarily alone during holidays. To be forgotten while the entire world gathers to celebrates Easter is a feeling worse than death. It’s like being burried alive, it’s a feeling of insignifice, not being needed, not being loved, forgotten, have nobody to speak to, and worse. And those people are often scapegoated and blamed for their loneliness, too. That’s why we must pray for them.

Katrina posted several articles ago-
“And, I think we have, at minimum, one more seven-year cycle to go before the very last cycle. but what I think I only humbly share as a total guess, just as everyone is guessing…”

So how does that factor into this article given current events. Katrina you are equally as capable and knowledgeable! But I didn’t see anything about this potentially not being the last 7 years in this which contradicts the prior post. Maybe I didn’t read carefully enough

Taylor Stofko - February 9, 2023

Hi all! I was largely under the impression that this was likely not the last 7 year cycle anymore based on the timing of events per one of Katrina‘s previous postings.

Donn Curran - January 20, 2023

War is coming to the Middle East, later this year, very soon after Passover 2023.. Now that the state of Israel has its former PM back in office, I believe everything lies in readiness. Iran continues to be the major target but Syria and Lebanon are also included. Is it possible Tim was correct after all about the month and the day but miscalculated the year by a year (2023 instead of 2022). Does anyone else have the same intuition?

    Randy Hernandez - January 25, 2023

    I have some of the same feelings, but suggest preparing for both possibilities: that it will start this year, or that it won’t. Live your life as if you have 100 more years, but be prepared for our Lord’s return.

    Budi Christanto - January 31, 2023

    It will never be a miscalculation given the first ‘prophetic word’ says “400 days from now… “.

    But later IF that event happens at that day and month, I will treat it as a true prophetic word with intentionally 1 or 2 year(s) hidden gap, similar to the expected 2.000 years gap in Daniel’s seventy weeks prophecy. (There is a precedence for such gap.)

    Artur - January 31, 2023

    Iran just got Drone striked from Drones started from Azerbaidjan where Israel has its Military Base.
    We may soon see Irans revenge from Syria hitting targets in Israel.
    Then its on.

    Jesus Christ is Lord.


Paula Sciria - January 11, 2023

what is the date for the
last 7 sabbath year? 23-30 or 24-31? and what day does Yom Teruak 2023?
Thank You & God Bless

    Azriela - January 18, 2023

    Shalom beloved Paula,

    Yom Teruah starts on z 7th month of hebrew calendar at New Moon sliver.
    This year 2023, April is the 1st month. So October wl be the 7th month, in principal on the 15th of Gregorian Calendar at Sun Set.

Scott Duncan - January 8, 2023

As time goes by it admittedly becomes more difficult to see this cycle as the one. But things can turn very quickly. The one area in Tim’s timeline with a bit of wiggle room was this period. The timing of the ME war, timeframe for Elijah to do his thing and general time needed to prepare is based more on reason and logic. So definitely still possible. Potentially 3 and a half years to wormwood is plenty time for events to unfold

Budi Christanto - January 7, 2023

The next 7 year Sabbath year cycle according to Tim is Spring, 2024 – Spring, 2031.

    Paula Sciria - January 11, 2023

    what does the 7 sabbath year begin again according to Israel? not according to Tim

      David - February 8, 2023

      I believe This year according to Israel is the sabbath of sabbaths (49th year) ending/beginning in April 2023. The issue lies in weather or not the jubilee is observable considering that it has not been since exile and should it apply now since Israel has been re established in 1948 and should it have been observed in 1973 as well? . (LEV 25:8-13)
      This matters because the “rapture” as a whole (not the actual rapture) must begin and end in the sabbatical year cycle. An observation of jubilee (end of 49th year)would start a new cycle of seven on the 51st year instead of the 50th year. Basically the rapture would need to wait a year to begin.
      You can buy the book it’s not expensive by any means and has a road map of events which helps you to recognize if we are in it or not. Considering the 8point quake yesterday I’m curious myself if Damascus is still standing.

        Rick Horn - February 9, 2023

        David, Damascus isn’t in ruins yet!
        check out this link for the best news about the Middle East, the recent earthquakes and more:

        There is a lot of recent news bytes with visual realities of the recent devastation.

          mauricio malagon - September 4, 2023

          Hey Rick, I believed that Damascus had to be a precursor to the events of Revelation, but with the way things are going I actually think those Middle East wars may even be part of WWW3 as the end of birth pangs and the beginning of the Trumpet activity…who knows…time will tell

        Sam Hui - February 13, 2023

        Hi David, I recall that Tim stated in his book that a Jubilee year won’t add another year to the 7 years cycle. Instead the Jubilee year will overlap with 1st year of the next cycle. You may wish to look up Chapter 10, Table 3 for further explanation.

Randy Hernandez - January 6, 2023

I agree, we need to live in preparation for both possibilities. We need to keep an eye on the Middle East, leading up to Yom Teruah 2023 (as that is the day the 70th Week would begin if it is this year).
