Now that we are at Resurrection Sunday it is time to speak of the ‘Big Event”; and to celebrate the Jubile by anticipating the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.But what is Jubile and why should I Care? The answer may well be tied to the purpose of this whole “Pandemic”.The virus brings death to mankind, but the love of YHWH brings life!
In our previous study we have seen the importance of keeping the Sabbath Day Holy by doing no work.Now let us see the Master’s plan for HIS people;
‘And the LORD spake unto MOSES in Mount Sinai, saying Speak to the children of Israel, and say unto them; When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto the Lord. Six years thou shall sow thy field, and six years thou shall prune thy vineyard and gather in the fruit thereof; but in the seventh year shall be a Sabbath rest unto the land, a Sabbath for the Lord; thou shall neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.” Leviticus 25:1-4
The land is promised to produce three times as much produce in the sixth year to supply plenty for the people and the animals until production restarts in the eighth and ninth years. This was to be a year of rest for the land and the people! It gets better! after seven cycles of seven years- there was to be in the fiftieth year a JUBILE; “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 his posession, and ye shall return every man unto his family”Leviticus 25:10. The reality was that ; 1- All slaves were set free; 2- All debts canceled;3- All property returned to its original owners. No work was to be done to the land for the whole year and the people were to keep three feasts unto the Lord.But, amazingly, they did not do that for long. The result was the Babylonian captivity of seventy years. At the end of that time Daniel saw that the time had been fulfilled and that the people were to soon be released to go home.Daniel Chapter 9:2 ;” In the first year of his reign Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.”.
The people were freed and returned to rebuild Jerusalem. G-D’s mercy is great and yet His plan is not complete. Just as the Sabbath rest is one day in seven(the Shabbat), and the Sabbath of the land is one year in seven (kept to this day by believing Jews in Israel), so also is to be a great Thousand Year Reign at the return of the Messiah- Jesus Christ to this earth. He will rule and reign from Jerusalem and there will be a great Millenial Kingdom at the end of six thousand years of mankind’s bondage to slavery and sin as the result of Adam’s fall in the garden.
Now that he whole earth is “Locked Down” into permanent Shabbat where everyone must remain in their homes and do no work; it is obvious that the almighty G-D is making His presence known by forcing mankind to observe the Sabbath of the Land, to help the earth recover her balance after so many years of abuse. But does not the Ruler of heaven and earth care more for people than for the land? Yes he does!
It seems clear that a “Paradigm Shift” is upon us as man’s wicked Babylonian system is collapsing, and with it the debt-based economic system of men.Can the Jubilee be far behind all this? Is it not time for the RISEN LORD JESUS CHRIST, the Messiah and HOLY ONE of ISRAEL to return and to “Set the Captives Free?”
Pray unto the Lord for forgiveness and for His Glorious return to “Take us Home out of Babylon!” It makes me want to shout when I see that the events of this present world are a perfect invitation for Jesus the Messiah to return for His people. Be encouraged my brothers and sisters; Jesus is coming back soon.He has not given up on us yet! There is still time for repentance. For those who don’t yet know Him, now is the time to invite Him into your heart, that He may come and dine with you and to save you from your sins and the coming judgement of this world.
HIS mercy He is about to bestow on us once again. Jesus the Messiah is coming back soon to reign for One Thousand Years; THE ULTIMATE SHABBAT IS COMING. Amen.
