My observation is that God judges based on our faithfulness, or lack thereof, and determines His judgments based on timeframes of X years, determined on His Moedim (festivals). God’s judgments are always designed to bring Israel to repentance, but they look different before and after the Messiah. This is an update on these patterns.Prior to the Messiah, all judgments pertained only to Israel, and the fierce nations appointed by God to encourage repentance. Over the last two thousand years, the sequences seem to have been divided into East vs. West skirmishes, with the fulcrum being Turkey, divided into four hundred year or four hundred ninety year intervals, with multiple patterns of dominance based on Jubilee cycles; setting up for a final conflict in the end of days destined to focus on Turkey. The hint: ALL of the Revelation Cities were in Turkey.
[Pre-Messiah Patterns] Now I have given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, my servant, and I have given him also the beasts of the field to serve him. All the nations shall serve him and his son and his grandson, until the time of his own land comes. Then many nations and great kings shall make him their slave. Jeremiah 27:7-8 (ESV) [and] This entire land will become a ruin, a waste; and these nations will serve the king of Bavel for seventy years. But when the seventy years are over, I will punish the king of Bavel and that nation for their sin,’ says Adonai, ‘and I will turn the land of the Kasdim into everlasting ruins. Jeremiah 25:11-12 (CJB) [became] Thus was fulfilled the word of ADONAI spoken by Yirmeyahu, "until the land has been paid her Shabbats"-for as long as it lay desolate, it kept Shabbat, until seventy years had passed. II Chronicles 36:21 (CJB) [and] in the first year of his reign, I, Dani’el, was reading the Scriptures and thinking about the number of years which Adonai had told Yirmeyah the prophet would be the period of Yerushalayim’s desolation, seventy years Daniel 9:2 (CJB) [and] Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; Isaiah 45:1 (CJB) [Meaning: Cyrus was appointed Messiah by Isaiah in 700 BC to replace Nebuchadnezzar after exactly seventy years of captivity 606 BC to 536 BC.][Post-Messiah Pattern] And aviv [Jacob] refused, and said, I know it, beni (my son), I know it; he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly achiv hakaton [younger brother] shall be greater than he, and his zera [seed] shall become a multitude of Goyim. Genesis 48:19 (CJB) [became] For I do not want you to be unaware, Achim b’Moshiach, of this raz (mystery), lest you be wise in your own estimation, that a hardening in part has come over Yisroel, until the full number of the Goyim has come in; Romans 11:25 (OJB) [Meaning: the end of days will occur when the full number of Gentiles come to faith.]
Yearly, Shemitah, and Jubilee judgments: Every year during the ten days from Rosh Hashanah to Yom Kippur, divine individual decisions are determined and meted out after the holiest day of the year. A greater family judgment event occurs every Shemitah or seventh year, as certain items, such as debts or slaves are settled or returned, and the land rests based on Torah. An even greater national event occurs every Jubilee or fiftieth year, only in Israel, as land is returned to the rightful owner; which I argue isn’t a human, for we only rent Israel’s land from God.When should we expect the next appointed event; on a Jubilee Year? Based on an obscure and highly accurate Prophecy of the Last Ten Jubilees by R. Judah ben Samuel, “When the Ottomans conquer Jerusalem, they will rule over Jerusalem for eight Jubilees. Afterwards, Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one Jubilee, and then in the ninth Jubilee it will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.” …any time after the real New Year Aviv/Nisan 1, 5777 (3.28.17) to Adar 29, 5778 (3.16.18), God may redeem the Temple Mount or eretz (land) Israel—setting off end time’s signs affecting Gentiles too—based on Torah and historic Jewish customs. I assume He will hasten the process after Yom Kippur 9.30.17.
“Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, occurs on the 10th day of Tishrei, 10 days after Rosh Hashanah. Jewish tradition believes that on this day God places a seal upon the Divine decrees affecting each person for the coming year. In other words, decisions of life and death, peace and prosperity have all been decided and are now sealed. The Book of Life is closing on this day.The sequence of events in the cycle of the Jewish year starts with Rosh Hashanah and continues through the next 10 days to culminate with Yom Kippur. Divine decisions are made on Rosh Hashanah, when all of humanity stands in judgment. These decrees are sealed on Yom Kippur and the intervening 8-day period, the Ten Days of Repentance, are the window of opportunity for the human dynamic to influence the Divine decrees. On Yom Kippur we make our final plea to God.”
[The rules of the Jubilee redemption are:] “If a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, he may redeem it within a year of its sale. For a full year he shall have the right of redemption. If it is not redeemed within a full year, then the house in the walled city shall belong in perpetuity to the buyer, throughout his generations; it shall not be released in the jubilee. But the houses of the villages that have no wall around them shall be classified with the fields of the land. They may be redeemed, and they shall be released in the jubilee. As for the cities of the Levites, the Levites may redeem at any time the houses in the cities they possess. And if one of the Levites exercises his right of redemption, then the house that was sold in a city they possess shall be released in the jubilee. For the houses in the cities of the Levites are their possession among the people of Israel. But the fields of pastureland belonging to their cities may not be sold, for that is their possession forever. Leviticus 25:29-34“But no devoted thing that a man devotes to the Lord, of anything that he has, whether man or beast, or of his inherited field, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy to the Lord. No one devoted, who is to be devoted for destruction from mankind [Yeshua], shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to death. Lev 27: 28-29
[Is Israel in God’s eyes considered “Walled or Unwalled?”] Thus says the Lord God: On that day, thoughts will come into your mind, and you will devise an evil scheme and say, ‘I will go up against the land of unwalled villages. I will fall upon the quiet people who dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having no bars or gates,’ to seize spoil and carry off plunder, to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and the people who were gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell at the center of the earth. Ez 38:10-12[God is Israel’s Firewall!] And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand! Then I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length.” And behold, the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him and said to him, “Run, say to that young man, ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of people and livestock in it. And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst.’” Up! Up! Flee from the land of the north, declares the Lord. For I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heavens, declares the Lord. 7Up! Escape to Zion, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon. Zechariah 2:1-7
Who Conquered Jerusalem in 1967: God or Man? “It was clearly a case of divine will, hitoruta d’la’ila (awakening from above). The entire war came at us against our will, but the battle for Jerusalem even more so. Everyone who fought in the war saw this,” Rabbi Begon said. “From the outset, the war moved forward so fast, not like a normal war that moves along slowly, according to the plans of generals. There were plans, but the battle ran ahead of that. After 2,000 years of longing, it took three days. Before we knew it, we were on the Temple Mount, feeling like we were dreaming.”The Mystery of the Lost Jubilee: Part XX – 6000 Years Old?
On June 7, 1967, [Iyyar 28, 5727] IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City toward the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, bringing Jerusalem’s holiest site under Jewish control for the first time in 2000 years. There are sound recordings of the scene, as the commander of the brigade,Lt. General Mordechai (Motta) Gur, approaches the Old City and announces to his company commanders, “We’re sitting right now on the ridge and we’re seeing the Old City. Shortly we’re going to go in to the Old City of Jerusalem, that all generations have dreamed about. We will be the first to enter the Old City...” and shortly afterwards, “The Temple Mount is in our hands! I repeat, the Temple Mount is in our hands!”United Nations resolution 181, passed fifty years later on November 29, 1947, [Kislev 16, 5708]
[Allenby] elected to make his entrance through Jaffa Gate instead of by horse or vehicles to show his great respect for the holy place on foot. After capturing Gaza, Allenby moved north, eventually defeating the Ottomans and capturing Jerusalem on the first day of Chanuka, December 9, 1917 [Kislev 24, 5678].First Zionist Congress August 29 to August 31, 1897 [Elul 1, 5657]: was the inaugural congress of the Zionist Organization (ZO) (to become the World Zionist Organization (WZO) in 1960) held in Basel (Basle). “At Basel I founded the Jewish State. If I said this out loud today l would be greeted by universal laughter. In five years perhaps, and certainly in fifty years, everyone will recognize it.” (Theodor Herzl)
In 1867, a team from the Royal Engineers, led by Lieutenant Charles Warren and financed by the Palestine Exploration Fund (P.E.F.), discovered a series of underground tunnels near the Temple Mount. Warren secretly  excavated some tunnels near the Temple Mount walls and was the first one to document their lower courses. Warren also conducted some small scale excavations inside the Temple Mount, by removing rubble that blocked passages leading from the Double Gate chamber.Sir Captain (later General) Charles Warren (1840-1927) was sent by the PEF (Palestine Exploration Fund) in 1867 to excavate the Land of Israel and Jerusalem. He was a Second Lieutenant in the Royal Engineers corps and an engineer by education. He later served as Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police in London. His work in Jerusalem took place in the areas surrounding the Temple Mount, as excavation of the Temple Mount itself was banned by the Ottoman authorities. Following this decree, he conducted an excavation of the area south of the Temple Mount and uncovered a massive fortification, which led him to explore the hill at the foot of the Temple Mount, known today as the City of David hill. In October 1867 [Tishrei 5628], he entered the Gihon Spring and began to investigate the underground tunnels surrounding the spring. There he discovered a vertical shaft that led to a manmade tunnel connecting the spring, at the foot of the hill, to the hill’s peak. He proposed that the system was intended to connect the city’s residents with the spring, and the water was drawn from this shaft.
In early 1516, the Ottoman Turks, wary of the danger of an alliance between the Mamluks and the Persian Safavids, started a campaign of conquest against the Mamluk sultanate. On 21 September, the Mamluk governor of Damascus fled the city, and on 2 October the khutba in the Umayyad mosque was pronounced in the name of Selim I. The day after, the victorious sultan entered the city, staying for three months. On 15 December, he left Damascus by Bab al-Jabiya, intent on the conquest of Egypt. Little appeared to have changed in the city: one army had simply replaced another. However, on his return in October 1517 [Tishrei 5278], the sultan ordered the construction of a mosque, taqiyya and mausoleum at the shrine of Shaikh Muhi al-Din ibn Arabi in Salihiyya. This was to be the first of Damascus' great Ottoman monuments.Sultan al-Ashraf Aqnouk al-Ghuri (1513-1516) was the last Memluk ruler. In a crucial battle outside Cairo in 1515, he was defeated by Sultan Selim I of the Ottoman dynasty effectively bringing the end of 250 years of Memluk rule. In December 1516, Sultan Selim arrived outside Jerusalem. The leaders of the Muslim, Christian and Jewish communities welcomed him with opened arms. Hence, there was no bloodshed nor forceful conquest. In reality, the people of Jerusalem were greatly relieved to see the Turks and gladly handed the sultan the keys to the city.. Being a pious man, it is said that upon seeing the El-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, Selim jumped off his horse, got on his knees and shouted "Thank be to Gog! I am the possessor of the sanctuary of the first Qiblah (House of God)!" (Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation October 31, 1517)
Fall 67AD/Tishrei 3827: Vespasian takes Judaean cities of Jamnia and Azotus. Titus returns to Caesarea. Titus moves from Gischala to Caesarea. Vespasian marches from Caesarea to subdue Jamnia and Azotus and then returns to Caesarea with a large number who had surrendered under treaty. (4.3.130)

70 AD began the four-490 year timeframes until the Messianic Age. By 560 AD Rome was collapsing, as Justinian 1, the last Roman, died finally in 565. After wars centered in and around Turkey, peace was declared in 567 AD, a Jubilee Year, which lasted nearly 490 years.“503-557 AD Persian-Roman Wars- Between 503 and 557 A.D., three successive wars -- interrupted by periods of peace -- are fought between the Persian Empire and the Eastern Roman Empire. All have the same basic cause -- an inability to define the borders and the relationship between the two empires. In 567 [Jubilee Year] a 'definitive' peace was reached. Under its terms, Rome agreed to pay the Persians 30,000 pieces of gold annually. The borders between the empire were reaffirmed, Christian worship was to be protected in the Persian Empire, and regulation of trade and diplomatic relations were laid out.”
The Council of 867 AD [Jubilee Year] led to the Schism of 1050 [490 year]-1054 caused the Seljuq Turks to invade Asia Minor [Turkey] in 1067 [Jubilee Year] which caused the Crusades of 1096-1291.The Ottoman [Turkey] Conquest of 1517 [Jubilee] by Selim 1 caused Jerusalem’s streets and walls to be rebuilt in 1539-1540 [490 year] by Suleiman, his son.
The end of war in 1917 [defeating Turkey] will affect the war of 2017 [Jubilee], which will affect the Messianic Age by 2030 [490 year]To understand the biblical chronology of this period it is necessary to consider the key issues relating to this period: see www.cogwriter.com/six_thousand_year_plan_6000.htm for the chronology dating creation at 3983 B.C.
From Exodus (1483 B.C.) to 2017 : 70 Jubilees (3500 years)
So, 50 Jubilees (Creation to Exodus) + 70 Jubilees (Exodus to 2017) = 120 JUBILEES.
120 Jubilee’s x 50 years = 6000 years
I hope you noticed the pattern of Israel being the fulcrum pre-Messiah, and Turkey being the fulcrum the last two thousand years. Yes, Turkey has been quiet since 1917, but they have a tragic history. I expect Gog (Obama) to create Turkish (Magog) acrimony with Russia to start his war.
Russia, Turkey and the US: between the terrible and the catastrophic Russia and Turkey are headed by two of the most brash, abrasive and swashbuckling leaders in the modern world.Turkey’s Ottoman Empire ruled over Eastern Orthodox Slavs in the Balkans from the 15th century until its final dissolution less than a century ago. Turks still see themselves as the guardians of Muslims, reflected in their admirable willingness to host over one-and-a-half million refugees fleeing the Syrian War. The Russians historically considered themselves the protector of the Balkans' Orthodox Christians and often fought wars with the Ottomans, notably in the Turkish-Russo War of 1877-1878.
