As you mentioned, there is the debate between a total of 49 or 50 years for sequential Jubilee counts. This debate has existed for at least 2,000 years. The rabbis propose two solutions, one is a repeating pattern of 7x7+1 = 50. This is the oldest recorded method. Eventually an argument for 7x7 with the first year of the next Sabbatical (7) count overlapping with the Jubilee year count, producing a sequential count of 49 years. For whatever it is worth, here is some information to consider.
1) Jubilee Count
There is no evidence in the Bible of just a 49-year sequential count. The book of Jubilees mentions a 49-year sequential count, but there are all sorts of problems with the book of Jubilees, and that would just be one of them. There is also evidence that Ezekiel may have revealed one or perhaps two Jubilee counts, but does not help prove either theory. If one subscribes to a 50-year count there are no compatibility problems with the Bible, only agreement. If one subscribes to a 49-year count, then the following prophetic occurrences and patterns in scripture are only a coincidence or accidental: 1) 140 x 50 = 7,000 2) 120 x 50 = 6,000 3) 80 x 50 = 4,000 4) 40 x 50 = 2,000 5) 46 x 50 = 2,300. Thus, there are several witnesses in the Bible evidencing the prophetic utility the 50-year sequential Jubilee count. There are no patterns or prophecies in the Bible that use a 49-year sequential count of the Jubilee. In that way, the sequential 49-year Jubilee count becomes completely prophetically useless.
For example, this is why the Messiah 2030 – Part 1 film highlights John 2:20 as valuable Biblical insight to the proper Jubilee count understanding (50 x 46 = 2300) in the context of temple restoration patterns.
2) All appointed times and prophetic units are Messianic.
That means that the two prophecies embedded in the Jubilee are also Messianic, that is “freedom” and “land restored.” The Messiah not only has to fulfill these Jubilee prophecies, but he has to also fulfill them on a Jubilee and the precise appointed Jubilee for each. The first fulfillment “freed” us from sin and death. The Messiah had to die/resurrect on the 80th Jubilee to fulfill the first requirement of the Jubilee. He did just that. The second element of the Jubilee prophecy that must be fulfilled is the restoration of land, and that must occur on the 120th Jubilee. That is still pending but coming soon.
Also, using the genealogy count to determine the year of creation would place creation well before 3,896 BCE, which is another problem only for the 49-year Jubilee count, but spot on for the 50-year Jubilee count.
3) 30 CE = Jubilee Year
Lastly, the Bible declares that the year of the Messiah’s death and resurrection was a Jubilee year, as noted that it also had to be according to the prophecy. While there is a great margin of error in backdating counts, a repeating 49-year Jubilee cycle does not appear to have the Messiah’s death and resurrection occurring on a Jubilee year. This is not only inconsistent with the Bible noting how it was indeed a Jubilee year, it is also breaking the prophetic pattern and two Messianic components of the Jubilee.
A PROPER JUBILEE COUNT TEST MUST INCLUDE:
A Jubilee count needs to agree with the pattern of the counting of omer, from Firstfruits to Shavuot, pointing to the pattern of the 8th day - Leviticus 23
A Jubilee count needs to produce two land rests in a row consistently. - Leviticus 25
A Jubilee count needs to produce 62 Sabbatical land rests and 8 Jubilee land rests in a count of 70 land rests. (The Daniel 9 Pattern Ratio of the cryptic 62/8- Connecting Back to the 70 Land Rests of 2 Chronicles 36:21)
A Jubilee count needs to be divisible by 7,000, 6,000, 4,000, 2,300, and 2,000, to produce the Biblical patterns of 140, 120, 80, 46, and 40.
The net-net of it is this. A repeating Jubilee 49-year cycle appears to have zero prophetic messianic utility with several problems, and a 50-year repeating Jubilee cycle appears to have more than several Biblical witnesses demonstrating prophetic messianic utility. One has to decide what to do with that information of course. Some are rather dead set on a repeating 49-year cycle. We simply cannot make that work, based on the assumption that the Jubilee cycle means something and not nothing.
If a Jubilee count is a repeating 49-year cycle, then the Messiah missed the 80th Jubilee in his first coming, and the 120th Jubilee in his second coming. Instead of being in the 119th Jubilee right now, we would be in the 122nd Jubilee.
In addition, a 49-year repeating Jubilee cycle does not line up with a day as a thousand years, or the “Years of Punishment Prophecy” found in Part 2 of Messiah 2030.
If one uses a repeating 49-year Jubilee cycle vs. a 50-year repeating Jubilee cycle then our presentation fails and all of these prophetic patterns and observations disclosed in the film are a meaningless coincidence. That perhaps could be the case, but we could not imagine what the statistical probabilities would be for that, and that is what the 49-year repeating Jubilee count theory would be up against. One cannot agree with our film in any capacity and still subscribe to a repeating 49-year Jubilee count, they are not compatible, for whatever that is worth.
