Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Jubilee from the Atonement”
Text: Leviticus 25:9
“Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land.”
“The Jubilee from the Atonement” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
On the 49th year of seven Sabbath years, the Trumpets were sounded on the 50th year on the Day of Atonement, announcing the Jubilee!
All debts were forgiven and all property and land was restored to the debtor.
What a thrilling picture this is of Resurrection Sunday!
Our Commander Jesus Christ, The Perfect Atonement Who paid and cancelled our sin debt with His Life - Triumphantly rose from the grave and Heavens trumpets of Jubilee sounded “The Jubilee From The Atonement,” The Way of Salvation had been established forever:
“But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,
from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.
For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.”(Heb.10:12-14)
At the beginning of His ministry as Son of Man, Jesus announced this in the synagogue in Nazareth:
“So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.
And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:
“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty those who are oppressed;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”(Luke 4:16-19).
“The acceptable year of the LORD” was The Jubilee from The Atonement.
This Jubilee was a double Sabbath rest of two years of trusting God to provide food for Israel for four years! Today, this Jubilee from The Atonement is celebrated every day by Faithful Warriors as you and I Trust in our Commander and King Jesus Christ to provide “all things pertaining to life and godliness,” to us each and every day.(2Pet.1:2-4).
How do you and I enter this Sabbath rest of Jubilee today?
As Jesus rested from His labor and sits at the right hand of God the Father - so you and I His Warriors rest from our works of human effort, and depend upon His life working in our surrendered life:
“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.”(Heb.4:9-10).
Hallelujah! This is The Jubliee from The Atonement that the Warrior should celebrate and rest in today! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
