There seems to be a sense among most spiritualy tuned up folks that there Christendom is on the brink of some fantastic changes and the Kingdom of God will make remarkable advances.
There seems to be some shifting of political viewpoints throughout the world as well as in America that are generaly populist in nature.
Of course, we cant forget those Myan's and their 2012 predictions of massive universal and societal change of some sort beginning this year-just saying-give them their due :)
Just curious cause I am thinking it through and appreciate help with stuff like that.
How do ya'll think the principles of the Year of Jubilee play into this? Is there any Bible Codes or Prophetic Calanders that place a time of Jubilee about now? What is the spiritual application of the Year of Jubilee in the New Covenant era?
Here are some exerpts from Wikipedia and a link to the full description of the Year of Jubilee from Wikipedia.
Thanks for any/all input.
Economist Michael Hudson maintains that the Biblical legislation of the Jubilee and Sabbatical years addressed the same problems encountered by these Babylonian kings, but the Biblical formulation of the laws presented a significant advance in justice and the rights of the people. This was due to the "clean slates" now being codified into law, rather than relying on the whim of the king. Furthermore, the regular rhythm of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years meant that everyone would know when the next release was due, thereby giving fairness and equity to both creditor and debtor. Hudson therefore maintains that not only was the Levitical legislation a significant advance over the prior attempts to deal with indebtedness, but this legislation was also eminently practical, in contradiction to many Biblical interpreters who are not economists and who have labeled it "utopian."
The Lord then spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai, saying, "Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, 'When you come into the land which I shall give you, then the land shall have a sabbath to the Lord. Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its crop, but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord…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, namely, forty-nine years. You shall then sound a ram's horn abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of atonement you shall sound a horn all through your land. You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you (Leviticus 25:1-4, 8-10, NASB).
