The Year of Jubilee

 

Numbers 10:10 ďAlso in the time when you rejoice, such as on your appointed festivals or at the beginnings of your months, you must blow with your trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings, so that they may become a memorial for you before your God: I am the Lord your God.Ē

What is the Year of Jubilee. It was proclaimed in the Old Testament in the book of Leviticus. It was a year of canceling all debts and wrongs.

Lev 25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

If you read the entire chapter of Lev. 25 you will see all that is covered. It was a year of complete freedom from all debt and all possessions returned to them.

In Isaiah it is prophesied of Jesus that he would be our Jubilee.


Isa 61:1-11 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
 

To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
 

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
 

And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolationís, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolationís of many generations and strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.


For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.


Isa 61:11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Then when Jesus came He stood the first time He ever spoke any where and said the following.
 

Luke 4:18-21 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

We donít have to wait for every fifty years as they did in the old Testament. Our year of Jubilee is now. Every day we can claim Jubilee because of what Jesus said here.
What has he promised us?

1) That He preaches the Gospel to the poor! Let the Poor say I am rich!

2 Cr 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

2) He came to heal the broken hearted. No more sorrow.

Isa 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

3) Preach deliverance to the captives. We have been set free from all oppression. All bondage that the devil would try to put us in. We are free!!
 

Gal 3:13-14 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
 

Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
 

4) To give sight to the blind. Both physically and spiritually. We see the manifestation of the physical healing of the blind throughout the Gospels.
 

Mat 11:5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
And he also took away Spiritual blindness.
 

Mat 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
 

John 16:7-13 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
 

The Holy Spirit is here to open blind eyes to the truth of the Word of God
 

5) To Set at liberty them that are bruised
 

Isa 42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

2 Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.


He wants us whole. He doesnít want us bruised or hurting in any way.


Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
 

6) He preached the acceptable year of the Lord
 

Isa 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages
 

2 Cr 6:2 For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
 

When is the Acceptable year of the Lord! Now! Now we have Jubilee. Now we have freedom! We just need to accept it and live in the freedom that Jesus has possessed for us. No longer in bondage to the world and the world system. God is our source and He will see us through!
 

Jesus is our Jubilee! He has pardoned all our debt and transgressions. He has replaced it with Prosperity, Health, Wholeness of Spirit Soul and Body. Anything we need to live in Victory.
 

2 Pe 1:2-4 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
 

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
This is the beginning of a Jubilee year for us all!!
