50 – Jubilee

And ye shall know the truth,

and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:32

50 in the Bible

This is a brief overview:

First mention of 50 / Fifty in the Bible:

Genesis 6:15 - And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
Nun  נ  ן  
Each month is linked to a letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Cheshvan is linked to the letter nun. 
The numeric value of the letter nun is 50. In Scripture, the number 50 is associated with the Jubilee, or year of redemption, and denotes fullness or completion.

נ NUN - Psalm 119:105-112
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. 
NUN - No darkness - Your Word is a light Unto my path like Noonday sunshine.

The Duration of the Flood was 150 years (3 sets of 50)

Genesis 7:24 - And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
Genesis 8:3 - And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

Calculation for the Feast of Firstfruits was 50 days after the wave offering of Passover

Leviticus 23:16 - Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the Lord.

Shavout - The Feast of Weeks – Pentecost

Pentecost - 4005 pentēkostḗ (from 4002 /pénte, "five") – properly fiftieth, referring to the festival of Pentecost – a one day festival celebrated at the end of the barley harvest. This was a joyous time of giving great thanks to God.
[The workers could only spare one day at this season of the year because the wheat harvest was already in process.]

pentékosté: fiftieth, Pentecost, the second of the three great Jewish feasts
Original Word: πεντηκοστή, ῆς, ἡ
Transliteration: pentékosté
Phonetic Spelling: (pen-tay-kos-tay')
Definition: fiftieth, Pentecost, the second of the three great Jewish feasts
Usage: Pentecost, a feast of the Jews, the fiftieth day after Passover.

A Jubilee is the 50th year (after 49 years, 7×7)

Leviticus 25:8, 10 - Thou shalt count for thee seven sabbaths of years, seven years seven times, and they shall be to thee seven sabbaths of years, nine and forty years, and ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and
proclaim liberty in the land to all the inhabitants 
thereof it shall be a jubilee unto you.

The Jubilee (Hebrewיובל yovel) year (every 50th year) and the Sabbatical year (every seventh year) are Biblical commandments concerning ownership of land and slaves. 

Yovel, Shofar and Freedom
"...on Yom-Kippur, you are to sound a blast on the shofar; you are to sound the shofar all through your land; and you are to consecrate the fiftieth year, proclaiming freedom throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It will be a yovel for you;" Leviticus 25:9.10

yobel: a ram, ram's horn (a wind instrument)

Hebrew Word: יוֹבֵל  Phonetic Spelling: (yo-bale')

In the biblical cycle, 50 is the yovel (jubilee) year, in which debts are released, slaves go free, the shofar of liberation is sounded, and each person returns to his or her family’s holdings.
The year 2017/5777 marked 50 years since the Six-Day War, when Israel captured East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza.

A 50th Anniversary is known as a GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.
And let him that heareth say, Come.
And let him that is athirst come.
And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
Revelation 22:17

We await the fullness of our redemption - the day of our complete release!
Deliverance / Salvation / Victory

The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 50

Fifty can be found 154 times in the Bible. Its meaning is directly related to the coming of God's Holy Spirit.
After Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene on Sunday morning, April 9 in 30 A.D., he ascended to the Father in heaven (John 20:17). His ascension, as a type of firstfruit from the dead (Revelation 1:5), occurred on the day God told the Israelites they were to wave a sheaf composed of the firstfruits of their harvest (Leviticus 23:9 - 11). It is on this day that the count of 50 days to the Feast of Pentecost begins.
In the New Testament the word Pentecost comes from the Greek word for fiftieth (Strong's Concordance #G4005). Also known as the Feast of Weeks or Firstfruits, it was on this special Holy Day that God first poured his Holy Spirit upon about 120 believers who had gathered to keep the day (Acts 1:15, 2). They became the firstfruits of God's spiritual harvest of humans.
How is the number 50 related to deliverance?
Fifty also symbolizes deliverance or freedom from a burden. God commanded ancient Israel that every 50th year, on the Day of Atonement, that a Jubilee was to be declared with the sound of a trumpet (Leviticus 25).
During the Jubilee year all debts were settled in favor of the debtor and inheritances were returned to their rightful owners. Also, those who worked as slave laborers in order to repay a debt were granted their freedom to return home to their families and land.

WEF 50th anniversary highlighted at January 2020 Forum
At the age of 50, is Davos going through a midlife crisis?
The World Economic Forum (WEF), based in Cologny-GenevaSwitzerland, is an NGO, founded in 1971. The WEF's mission is cited as "committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas". It is a membership-based organization, and membership is made up of the world's largest corporations.
The WEF hosts an annual meeting at the end of January in Davos, a mountain resort in Graubünden, in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland. The meeting brings together some 3,000 business leaders, international political leaders, economists, celebrities and journalists for up to five days to discuss global issues, across 500 public and private sessions.
The WEF was founded in 1971 by Klaus Schwab, a business professor at the University of Geneva.[5] First named the European Management Forum, it changed its name to the World Economic Forum in 1987 and sought to broaden its vision to include providing a platform for resolving international conflicts.
In the summer of 1971, Schwab invited 444 executives from Western European firms to the first European Management Symposium held in the Davos Congress Centre under the patronage of the European Commission and European industrial associations, where Schwab sought to introduce European firms to American management practices. He then founded the WEF as a nonprofit organization based in Geneva and drew European business leaders to Davos for the annual meetings each January.

Shah of Iran - Mohammad Reza Shah took the title Shahanshah ("King of Kings")[4] on 26 October 1967. He was the second and last monarch of the House of Pahlavi. Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi held several other titles, including that of Aryamehr ("Light of the Aryans") and Bozorg Arteshtaran ("Commander-in-Chief").

How Iran Threw the World's Greatest Party In a Desert -
In 1971, Iran threw an extravagant and exclusive party to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian empire. The party had a grandeur never seen before in the world's recorded history. It had delicious food from the world's best restaurant, exquisite drinks, luxurious accommodations, medieval European style decorations, and more importantly - the party had the most decorated guestlist - heads of states from 65 different countries, emperors, kings and queens, princes and princesses, sheiks, sultans, and business figures of all kinds from 5 different continents. The venue of the event was not some ancient castle or a seven-star hotel, instead, everything was organized from scratch, in the middle of a desert, by building plastic tents.
The cost of all of this? Not a million dollars; Not a billion dollars; this party almost cost a dynasty. It proved to be a stepping stone for the rise of the Iranian revolution and the fall of the Iranian Monarchy that changed the country forever.


Leviticus 25:13 - ‘In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.

Days of Elijah 

(Official Lyric Video) - Robin Mark - Integrity Music

John 1:23 
 "He [John the Baptist] said, 'I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, 
'Make straight the way of the Lord.' as Isaiah the prophet said.  
Luke 21:27  
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud
 with power and great glory.

These are the days of Elijah,

Declaring the word of the Lord

And these are the days of Your servant Moses,

Righteousness being restored.

And though these are days of great trial,

Of famine and darkness and sword,

Still, we are the voice in the desert crying

"Prepare ye the way of the Lord!"

Behold He comes riding on the clouds,

Shining like the sun at the trumpet call,
Lift your voice, it's the year of jubilee,
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes.
These are the days of Ezekiel,
The dry bones becoming as flesh,
And these are the days of Your servant David,
Rebuilding a temple of praise.
These are the days of the harvest,
The fields are as white in Your world,
And we are the labourers in Your vineyard,
Declaring the word of the Lord!
