Year of Jubilee: God’s Time Table

 

And you shall count seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. 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 the land. 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 (Leviticus 25:8-10).

In ancient Israel the year of Jubilee was meant to be celebrated each fiftieth year where all debt were canceled and all possessions returned to its original owner and all Hebrew slaves in Israel were set free. The Year of Jubilee (from Hebrew yobel, “ram’s horn”) is an extension of the Sabbath principle that begins with the day of rest every seventh day, extended in the Sabbatical Year fallow every seventh year, to the Jubilee. The Jubilee year following each cycle of seven 7-year periods, counting from Israel’s entry into the Promised Land. Seven of these seven-year periods (7 x 7 = 49) were to be counted, and the following year, the 50th, was to be a Jubilee year. The length of each cycle toward the year of Jubilee is fifty years. The trumpet of the Jubilee is to be sounded throughout all the land to consecrate the 50th year and to proclaim liberty to all inhabitants of the land.

The Jubilee Year, like the Sabbatical Year, was also to be a year of rest for the land, in which sowing, reaping, and harvesting were forbidden. The land had complete rest. This meant that the produce of the 48th year of each 50-year cycle would be the primary food source for that year and for a little over two years following, until the harvest of the 51st, or the year after the Jubilee.

The Jubilee was the entire year a festival of restoration, a year of liberty. The observance of it would demonstrate Israel’s faith in God and it would be a time of thanksgiving and joy in His provision. There is no indication in the Scriptures that the Year of Jubilee was observed. If Israel would have observed this commandment of the Lord, every Israelite would have been freed from permanent poverty.

It was on the tenth day of the seventh month (in the month of Tishri), on the Day of Atonement, that the curved animal horn, was sounded, proclaiming liberty throughout the land. This meant freedom for Hebrew slaves, many of whom had sold themselves because of poverty. Such release normally came in the seventh year of servitude (Exodus 21:2), but the Jubilee provided liberty for those who had served less than six years. All hereditary land possessions (houses in villages and fields of the country) that had been sold were returned. Each man returned to his family and his ancestral possession. No family was to sink into depths of perpetual poverty. God meant for every family to prosper. Even a person who squandered his substance could not forever lose his inheritance for his posterity. Though the people would occupy the land in Canaan, the ownership of the land is the Lord’s. The Israelites themselves were strangers and sojourners with the Lord (Leviticus 25:23-24). If Israel kept the law of the Lord, every one of them would have come into his possession. God would have blessed and prospered them; they would have lend to many nations, but would not have borrowed; they would have reigned over many nations, but they would not have reigned over them (Leviticus 25:8-10; Deuteronomy 15:4-5).

The Jubilee was for the people’s sake. It shall be ; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family (Leviticus 25:10b, emphasis added). Each family shall have their heritage restored according to that which their ancestors received when they entered the Promised Land. Each family shall be free as their ancestors were on the day they entered the Promised Land.

The Jubilee was a type and shadow of a better Jubilee to come, the true Jubilee that God envisaged for His people. It entails the restoration of all possessions and liberty that Adam has lost in the Garden of Eden through sin.

When God created man He gave him dominion over the earth. Adam and Eve were overflowing with heavenly peace and liberty as they ruled the Garden of Eden, their Promised Land, in the cool of the day.

When Adam fell from perfection in God he lost his freedom in God and became a slave of sin and death. He was unable to please God and incapable of bringing fulfillment to the earth. He lost everything he had in God!

Adam, through sin, lost all of his possessions to Satan. He tore the universe, which was one realm in God, into two realms. Two symbolizes separation. Sin separated Adam from God. God who is holy will not share the same domain with sinful flesh. He will not share His glory with someone that is outside of Him. Man was casted into the natural or lower realm of creation which is covered with a because of the presence of the evil one. Man, as a , found himself isolated from God, dwelling in the kingdom of the ruler of this world, the natural realm, while the remains in His abode in the Spirit. God never changed but when sin entered into man he signed all of his possessions over to Satan and lost his freedom in the Holy Spirit as he fell from light into darkness.

God in His foreknowledge provided a Jubilee for man, to regain what he had lost in Adam. Jesus is the fulfillment of the believer’s Jubilee. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He 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.” Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:17-21).

Jesus is the Anointed One, the Lamb of God without blemish. He alone could do it because the Spirit of the Lord is upon Him. He is the Anointed One, the Christ or Messiah, the prophet that was liken unto Moses to preach the gospel to the poor; to everyone that has lost his or her heritage in Adam. He came to heal the broken hearted for how shall the Lord’s people sing the songs of Zion in a strange land. He came blowing the ram’s horn, proclaiming liberty to the captives and the acceptable year of the Lord. He came to recover the sight of the blind which they lost in Adam; failing to see the kingdom of God. He came to take away the depression due to the loss of our possessions and freedom caused by the insubordination of the infidel Adam. The day Jesus read it, he declared it fulfilled. Then he made the provision valid by sealing it in His blood on the cross. Thank you Lord Jesus; for all eternity we will sing your praise!

Though the Lord forever sealed Jubilee in the New Covenant in His blood we do not yet see that we have attained bodily to the resurrection from the dead and made perfect in the soul and see all things under Him. There remains in the plan of God a .

Much was written on the restoration of all things by excellent men of God, much more spectacular than I can ever present to you, but to me was given to see in visions, dreams and revelation the time frames of the plan of God. The significance of the Year of Jubilee is far more significant than we can ever think or imagine. To see the restoration of all things without the time schedule of God is to see half a picture or a vision with little understanding.

The models of Sabbath and Jubilee contain the mystery of the time frames of God’s creation and redemption plans. The Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles of God, which He gave to the ancient Israelites as laws to keep, are types and shadows of the time frames of His creation and redemption plans. The Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles emphasize different time cycles and time frames. This marvelous mystery is hidden in the Scriptures.

How long did it take God to create the heavens and the earth? For in six days the Lord made the heavens and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day (Exodus 20:11a). Was it six 24-hour days?

Some say that each of the six days could have been a different time period which was called a creation day. Some says it was 6 year-days and others are adamant that God created the heavens and earth in six 24-hour days. What do the Scriptures say about it?

Firstly, God used His Sabbatical model in His creation plan. He created the heavens and earth in six days and on the seventh day he rested. If God created the heavens and earth in six 24-hour days God would have fulfilled His rest and His redemption plan 24 hours later. We are still on earth, waiting for Christ’s return, testifying that this view is not true. The carnal mind does not have revelation concerning the things of the Spirit.

If God created the heavens and earth in six years God would have completed His rest and redemption plan one year later. Even if God’s creation days were 1 000 year periods His rest and redemption plan would have been completed thousands of years ago. We are still walking the earth. If creation days were different time periods then the use of the word day in the creation account was used inappropriately – in such a case, a different word would have been used. The word in Genesis 1 signifies a certain fixed time period. Since nature teaches us that days are more or less equal
