Rev.13:16-18 are telling about the false prophet causing the earth dwellers that will be left behind after the rapture - And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 * (bondage) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
The Hebrew slave was to serve SIX years. --- For SIX years the land was to be sown and worked then to rest during the seventh year, the Sabbatical year.
There is no record of the Sabbatical year and the year of Jubilee ever being kept.
Not only did God promise blessing if His Word was obeyed, but He warned of judgment if it was not. If they walked contrary to Him, He would walk contrary to them.
Lev. 26:33- 35 tells what would happen if the Israelites did not let the land keep the Sabbaths. — That is, lay out with out tending this ground every seventh year; they were to let it rest. The people were to work six days and rest the seventh, the Sabbath day, their day of worship.—moreover the land was also to rest the seventh day.
Leviticus 26: 33-35 And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. 34Then shall the land enjoy her Sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her Sabbaths. 35As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your Sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.
LISTEN--For approximately 490 years the sabbatical year was not kept—that is seventy Sabbaths had been neglected. Therefore God said through Jeremiah that for seventy years they will live in a strange country (Babylon) while their land has its rest.
Then after the last sabbatical years have been made up, Israel will be permitted to return to the land.
I want us to notice, God don’t always pay off on Friday afternoon, but He always pays off.
Jer. 25:11-12 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years. 12And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity,---and may I say, Israel’s worst days are yet ahead in the Tribulation, as well as the land that is called Babylon.
Also in Jer.29:10 For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.
Dan 9:2 also tells the actual desolation is said to be seventy years, the land was to have rested one year in every seven.
When God is dealing with the nation of Israel, He deals with the calendar. He spells out time in relation to their history. When God deals with the church, He does not give any dates or times. Therefore you and I are not able to say when the Lord Jesus is coming, but we can plainly see the end time signs with us and therefore we don’t believe it is very far away.
We read in;
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Listen, the very fact that Jesus said the Father only knows the day and hour tells us without any doubt that He has a certain day and hour set, also realize that because He is God He knows exactly how many people that will be in the Lord Jesus True church and it surely must be nearing completion, I am of the opinion that when that certain number is met that will be the time that the Church will be caught away.
Listen, the church age, this grace dispensation, begin on the day of Pentecost, over 2000 years ago, it’s now 2011, the next dispensation is the dispensation of the Kingdom, man has been on this earth for over 6000 years, that means the next 1000 years will be the 1000 year reign of King Jesus on this earth, seven is the number of “perfection and completion”
