Year of Jubilee
December 31, 2005
And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family.
Sanctify the fiftieth year; make it a holy year. Proclaim freedom all over the land to everyone who lives in it--a Jubilee for you: Each person will go back to his family’s property and reunite with his extended family. – Message Bible
A command that God gave the Israelites was the keeping of the year of jubilee.
The English word jubilee comes from the Hebrew word “Yobel” meaning a trumpet or ram’s horn.
2006 is the biblical year of the trumpet
Trumpets were sounded throughout the land of Israel and two amazing things will happened:
Ø All Hebrew slaves were set free.
o Romans 8:2 - For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
o Romans 8:21 - that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
o Galatians 5:1 - It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
o In 2006, People that were slaves to sin will be set free. It is up to us to witness to them again and reap the harvest of souls.
Ø All land returned to its original owners or owner’s family.
o Zechariah 9:11-12 - As for you also, Because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. Return to the stronghold, You prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.
o Because of the blood! What can take away my sin? What can make me whole again? What allows me to take part in these promises found in the word of God = The Blood!!!!!!
o Jeremiah 30:17 - For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,’ says the LORD, "Because they called you an outcast saying: "This is Zion; No one seeks her."’
o During this year, the enemy must return the things taken from God’s chosen people!
§ What has the enemy taken from you? Your joy? Your health? Your family? Pray the prayer of faith over these lost possessions and have them returned!
