It is not in the Bible, but have you heard about Rabbi Judah ben Samuel’s “Prophecy of Ten Jubilees?”
I saw a reference to it in a video that someone sent to me and decided that I should check out. I discovered that it is either an incredibly accurate prophecy or a false prophecy that was written after the fact.
In the March 2008 edition of Israel Today magazine there was an article about it.
On Nov. 14, 2012, World Net Daily published an Exclusive Report about it.
Jack Van Impe, John Hagee, Perry Stone and “Prophecy in the News” have mentioned it in videos.
Understand that one Jubilee is 50 years.
Anyway, in 1215, Rabbi Judah ben Samuel was allegedly visited by the prophet Elijah who told him, “When the Ottomans (Turks) conquer Jerusalem they (the Turks) will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees (8 X 50 = 400 years).”
“Afterward (after the 400 years) Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee (50 yrs.), and then in the ninth jubilee (at the end of the ninth jubilee) it (Jerusalem) will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”
This is what history says:
- In 1217, the Rabbi Judah ben Samuel died.
- In 1517 (6 Jubilees or 6 X 50 = 300 years later), the Turks captured Jerusalem and the “Prophecy of Ten Jubilees” started.
- In 1917 (8 Jubilees or 8 X 50 = 400 years later), the British captured Jerusalem and the rule of the Turks ended. This was exactly what the alleged prophecy said.
- During the next 50 years, Jerusalem was no-man’s land under the control of the League of Nations, the United Nations and Jordan. This was exactly what the alleged prophecy said.
- In 1967 (1 Jubilee or 1 X 50 = 50 years later), Israel captured East Jerusalem. This was exactly what the alleged prophecy said.
- In 2017 (1 Jubilee or 1 X 50 = 50 years later), the Ten Jubilees will end (on Sept. 23, 2017), Israel will possess Jerusalem and the Messianic end times will begin.
I Googled “Messianic end times” and learned that it refers to the time when Elijah will appear and the age of peace will begin.
Next, I remembered that God said: “I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord” (Malachi 4:5).
Then, it occurred to me that Rabbi Judah ben Samuel allegedly said this prophecy came from Elijah.
And I don’t know what he will do, but there is the possibility that President Trump will move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem this year (in 2017).
One more thing: On Mar. 14, 2017, it was reported that Israel has budgeted $550,000 a year to research and strengthen the connection between Israel and the Temple Mount.
This means that the Israeli government has now officially recognized that the Temple Mount is a Jewish site (not a Palestinian site).
And it is interesting that this has happened in the 10th Jubilee of Rabbi Juda ben Samuel’s “Prophecy of Ten Jubilees.”
Each person should decide whether to believe this prophecy is true or a fake. But if the world is close to the great and dreadful day of the Lord, a powerful miracle-working prophet could soon appear.
