What does that mean? The Jubilee year is a year of redemption and liberty...redemption and liberty for some, hell on earth for others.
Lev 25:8And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 9Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. 11A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. 12For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.
Why should we as Christians care about the Jubilee year for Israel? The entire book of Revelation is centered around Israel and we are watching the unfolding of the prophesies of that book all around us. How so?
Consider the position this world finds itself in today. It was just revealed in the past couple days that Deutsche Bank could declare bankruptcy any day now. That would be the equivalent of a financial weapon of mass destruction going off in Europe. Between the euro problems, Deutsche Bank problems, immigrant problems, Germany the stalwart fortress/support of Europe is not doing so well these days.
What else do we see? 4 Blood moon tetrad completes its display in the heavens and despite the best attempts of the deniers that the blood moons weren't "red enough" to qualify as blood moons, what is Israel's situation at the end of the tetrad? Temple mount tensions are escalating by the day. Russia has just formed a new beachhead in Syria where it is pouring in tanks, troops and aircraft. The rest of the middle east has been completely destabilized thanks to the "expert" strategies of our dear leader here in the United States. What is the net result? Today the middle east is a completely destabilized area of the world full of armies with more weapons, troops and planes arriving every day.
Interest rates are right now at 5,000 year lows. Yes, you read that correctly, 5,000 year lows. That by any definition you might want to throw at it is the bubble of all bubbles ready to pop. The bond market will explode soon, and remember the bond market is much larger than the stock market so when it tanks, it is going to hurt. Who will it hurt first? Governments. The governments of this world are under pressure unlike anything they imagined for themselves. The people the world over have had it with corrupt, bought off career robber baron politicians. Thus we have the popularity of trump. Added to the distaste for today's politicians the economies of the governments these politicians run are collapsing. Add to this demographic problems, then add to this natural disaster problems, then add to this societal tension (divided along every line imaginable, me first mentality) and what you have is a powder keg.
So what? So, about now people are looking for a savior.......
2 Thess 2:7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Is this world ready for the man of sin with his accompanying power, signs and lying wonders? You bet they are. They rejected the truth (The Lord Jesus Christ/The Word) so they will get a lie and they will love it to their undoing.
Massive changes are coming. We have discussed some of the changes on the horizon but consider this one as well. This world is having a love affair with Islam. The Muslim can do no wrong anywhere it seems. They are a preffered people untouchable by the governments of the west where they are quickly establishing bases of power to work out their own agenda (this too is the hand of our Lord working out judgement). So? Where does the massive change come in? In a world gone crazy for Islam, Israel will get her temple back. Everyone who has said there will be no rebuilt temple has been proven to be false. My word is worth nothing, what does the Word say?
Mark 13:14“When you see the abomination that causes desolationa standing where itb does not belong—let the reader understand—then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15Let no one on the housetop go down or enter the house to take anything out. 16Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. 17How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! 18Pray that this will not take place in winter, 19because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now—and never to be equaled again.
Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.
Notice the Words "when you see." Obviously the Lord is telling people to look for something they can see. It also mentions Judea, not the rest of the world, not the United States, not Canada, not Germany JUDEA where people are supposed to take a very specific action: flee to the mountains. The daily sacrifice is to be taken away, that means the daily sacrifice must be started again IN JUDEA.
The people who have tried to spiritualize this to make it say whatever they wanted it to say have been proven wrong again and again and again.
There will be a rebuilt temple, PERIOD. That is what the Word of God says at face value without twisting it, turning it, or spiritualizing it, that is what it says. How will this happen in a world in love with Islam? Massive changes have to take place first. Absolutely MASSIVE changes. What is the biggest catalyst for change we know of? War. In 6 days in 1967, Israel transformed the situation in the middle east. Not 6 years, 6 DAYS.
The year of Jubilee in 1967 gave Jerusalem back to Israel. This Jubilee year, what will Israel win back? Watch and see.
Massive changes are upon us and the impression I get from the Spirit is we should not fear. We should trust, we should hope, we should pray, rejoice, give thanks, praise and worship but we should not fear. The Lord our God is at work, can you see it? All glory and honor and power be to our God, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. May He be forever praise. AMEN.
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
