Yovel and Omer - Comparison

Each year of the Yovel, as well as each day of the Omer, we count, as early as we can. For counting towards the Yovel, it is at the beginning of Tishrei, and for the Omer it is right after evening prayers.

When looking at history as a Yovel of Yovels, as I mentioned before, it is different:
Each Yovel is really marked at the end, as opposed to the Omer, which is marked at the beginning.
As such, the action required on the part of Am Yisrael is essentially over at the beginning of the 49th day of the Omer, for the counting is done at the beginning of the day.
To carry that parallel through, the beginning of the 49th Yovel cycle, beginning in less than 7 years, is the end of the preparation to receive.
