Jesus is Jubilee!


September brought in Jubilee, but this was no ordinary Juiblee. It was the 70th Jubilee since Joshua led the children of Israel into the promised land. It marked a time of celebration for the Jews because God gave them their long awaited inheritance. God established four special provisions of Jubilee. They are rest, release from debt, freedom from slavery (liberty), and restoration. God instituted Jubilee for His people, to provide these special blessings and Jubilee only rolled around every 50 years.

When I re-readed Luke 4:18, I saw these same provisions and I was so amazed. "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor (salvation), He hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted (rest), to preach deliverance to the captives (release), and recovering of sight to the blind (restoration), to set at liberty (freedom/release) them that are bruised," This is the scripture that Jesus read in the temple when He began His earthly ministry, at age 12. It hit me like a ton of brick, JESUS IS JUBILEE!
