How many of us realize that the Jewish people in this past year actually celebrated THE 70th Jubilee cycle since Joshua and Caleb went into the Promised Land? Dare we Gentiles include ourselves since after all, the Bible declares we are only grafted in to the vine. The vine is simply a metaphor and we Believers know that the vine is symbolic of Jesus the Messiah. So why was this last year 2018 a very significant time even for Gentiles?
Warning – interesting numerology rabbit hole ahead….What do each of the digits signify in the Hebrew? We are living in the 10 year period which scholars would say is the decade in which we learn to “see” 5 in Hebrew stands for
A little bit of Jewish history is always spiritually important regarding the United States. It my reader needs further explanation of the connection between America and Israel….I will be researching the more scholarly writings and provide a list of those resources later on.
For now, we’ll have to settle for my personal and much more simplified understanding and explanation of the similarities and divine connection between these two countries.
- America is Israel’s closest ally.
- Both nations are nations of immigrants.
- Both enjoy prosperity based on a capitalistic economic foundation.
- Both countries are strikingly entrepreneurial and leaders in innovation.
- America and Israel have similar spiritual foundations – we worship the same God of the Bible who is also the God of the Torah.
- It is a Biblical principle that any nation which defends, stands with, or otherwise protects Israel is destined to be in God’s divine favor.
- America is and was founded on Godly principles.
Now that we have laid a small foundation to establish that America and Israel are divinely covenanted, let us examine the times that we are living in. Jewish tradition still regards the Sabbath Day as holy unto the Lord. In the seventh year, they are commanded to rest (although agriculturally – its meaning is more significant) This seventh year has come to be known as the Shemitah. So every 7 SEVEN years, Israel celebrates the Shemitah as mandated by the Torah. So, we have the Sabbath and now we have the Shemitah.
However, I am more interested in the phenomenon that happens even more rarely. One caveat here, although I would love to dig into the blood moon phenomenon and how other recent signs in the sky are all inter-related, this post is already getting lengthy…so check back soon…..
We have all heard of this concept of Jubilee, however who has realized that only one generation at the most two could celebrate such an occurrence? The Jubilee occurs only every 50 years. If you haven’t heard this yet; most of 2016 coincided with the Jewish Jubilee (the Hebraic calendar year begins in our month of September so it actually started in 2015, but was less than four months of that year, therefore we consider 2016 for the spiritual parallels. That means the last Jubilee the Jewish people observed was the year 1966/1967. Hmmmm…..what happened around that time?
I began to wonder what event in the Pentateuch initiated such a tradition? What does it mean? It must have been something very significant. AT the first Jubilee they went into a WALLED CITY….what did they do…
THEY RELEASED A GREAT SHOUT!
Now, what we have to understand is that – in Christ – when Jesus announced His ministry…. He stood up and read Isaiah 61 – ….every day can be a Jubilee.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me to proclaim the acceptable, favorable year of the Lord.
Leviticus 25- what can you NOT get back in Jubilee….something that is inside a walled city……the enemy has been busy building walls around our promises…walls of regret, shame, fear – telling you sorry, you can’t get it back….Na na nana na
A TE RU WAH….IS THE SAME WORD AS JUBILEE….JUBILEE – A GREAT SHOUT!!!!
GOD IS TELLING YOU – YOU CAN AND YOU WILL POSSESS YOUR PROMISE….I LIFTED UP A JUBILEE SHOUT ON JULY 20, 2016. IT IS NO – I REPEAT NO COINCIDENCE THAT THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION WAS SCHEDULED IN CLEVELAND AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME – DONALD TRUMP WAS HEADLINER AND FORMALLY ACCEPTED THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE THE VERY NEXT DAY!
THE YEAR OF JUBILEE….MY INHERITANCE IS RELEASED UNTO ME. PERIOD.
“Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land and to all its inhabitants…..” Is engraved on the Liberty Bell,
God is proclaiming LIBERTY to all our inhabitants….
Now..What condition was this WALLED city in when the people SHOUTED the walls down?
THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN
Verse 19….Even though the city looked lovely and was very pleasant– the water was under a curse….that is keeping the city from being what it is called to be….This verse is talking about Jericho! But it was actually Joshua hundreds of years earlier and said “Whoever rebuilds this city will be cursed.” Ahel slit his oldest son’s throat and poured his blood into the foundation stone….and he did the same with his youngest to set the city of Jericho….the ground was barren…crops dying…. When Elisha was mantled he knew he was mantled to reverse the curse!
MATTHEW 11: THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS FORCEFULLY ADVANCING AND FORCEFUL MEN ARE ADVANCING IT…..I WANT TO BE ONE OF THOSE FORCEFUL MEN; ONE OF THOSE FORCEFUL WOMEN….
Psalm 2 Why do the nations rage when the King is on His throne…. GOD LAUGHS!!
We need an apostolic new mantle in this new day. If the old mantle could do the job then it would have been done…..Where is the God of Elijah? Elisha tore off his own mantle in obedience….significant when Jesus went up – His mantle came down….and what we have been given is far more powerful than Elijah’s mantle.
When Jesus ascended, He tore His mantle into 5 parts…..Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher, and Evangelist….
Stop relying on pastors to do ALL THE STUFF!
God gave these 5 GIFTS FOR????
THE EQUIPPING OF THE SAINTS…you do not have to die and have your image in a stained glass window to be considered a saint….
We are living in the only era when we as a church actually have ALL 5 FOLD ministries operating in the earth today.
Cross out of the old into the NEW! New wine HAS to have NEW wineskins….And guess what it is NOT Earthly wine…It is HEAVENLY WINE!
When you are blessed and prayed for by a pastor – you are receiving an impartation to pastor people – to love them – to care for them wherever you go…when you are blessed and prayed for by an apostle – you are mobilized to go lay foundations…..
