Jesus came to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18-19). Jesus is eternal. His time never runs out so this acceptable time is continual!
The great thing about the Jubilee was the freedom. Israelites were given back their land. What was taken from them even if it was of debt was given back to them. If they were a slave, they were set free by their masters. They were required to observe a Sabbath rest. Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath. We rest in Him and let Him work healing and restoration.
The Levites’ (Ordained priests of God in the Old Testament) cities could never be sold! They were always given the right to purchase any land they owned at any given time. Jesus as the High Priest, with His life, purchased all the land God used to own: the land humankind gave up to Satan. God owns the cattle on a 1000 hills, which is a roundabout way to say that God owns the Earth. He created it and gave it to humankind to tend. Humankind lost it but Jesus retrieved it.
The land of Eden: the garden land where everything was prepared for ahead of time, where blessings flowed, where all the work had been done, where there was abundance, where humankind was given their identity, purpose, and blessing of God, has been reclaimed by Jesus! Jesus has all authority in Heaven and Earth now. He has given us the right to exert His influence and use His name to proclaim His love. He has given us permission to live on His land, the land of Eden.
It is a joyous day! Today is the day of salvation! Today is the Jubilee where freedom reigns forevermore! Live in Eden! Choose the good portion of Jesus!
“Heavenly Father, thank You for the Jubilee. Thank You for sending Jesus to free me from the bondage of sin and death. I am free to live unencumbered and unburdened by sickness, disease, stress, worry, lack, poverty, curses, and sin! Jesus, thank You for proclaiming eternal life to me. I humbly accept You and Your good plans for my life. I have decided to live in Jesus all the days of my life. I find my identity, purpose, hope, blessing, and provision in You, Jesus. I shall proclaim Your freedom to all those around me! The world shall see Your influence in my life! Thank You Jesus! Amen.”
