Happy New Year!

We have so much to give God praise for.  We all can testify as those of old and say, "When I think about the Goodness of Jesus and all that he has done for me, my very soul cries out HALLELUJAH, I thank God for saving me!"

2017 is a very special year for us.  This is our 50th year.  That means Jubilee is in the air.
Remember it was when the children of Israel cried out to their God for deliverance. God not only delivered them from bondage in Egypt, but He also established a system that would continue to provide deliverance again and again every fifty years by declaring a Jubilee in the land. Timothy, we can shout because this is our year of Jubilee. Jubilee is significant because every 50 years the people of God get to experience it.

With the Jubilee, each generation could be delivered, and with that deliverance came seven amazing promises that should be very significant to each of us today.  During our Jubilee let's claim them today and thought this year:

1. Liberty
"And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family" Leviticus 25:10. Bondage is a cruel master. Bondage is not of God. Today, too many people are in financial bondage. When you borrow money, you are in bondage to the lender. God is getting ready to set the captives free supernaturally. Liberty is coming because it is our Jubilee!

2. Possession
"In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession" Leviticus 25:13.During Old Testament times, the owners of slaves were not allowed to go home. But during the Jubilee, all were allowed to return to their homes, families, and possessions. It is time that believers receive every possession God has promised. He has promised healing, deliverance, and prosperity. The enemy of your soul has held you back too long, for he comes to "steal, and to kill, and to destroy," but Jesus Christ came that you can have "life...more abundantly" John 10:10. Satan wants keep you from God's best. He will do everything to keep you from doing God's will. He wants to stop you from going back to your possessions and having all that God desires for you. The time is coming for you to return to your possessions!

3. Total Restoration to Your Family
"Ye shall return every man unto his family" Leviticus 25:10.  As part of returning to possessions, people were able to return to the family. Homes were restored during the Jubilee. Your family may be splintered. You may have children who have strayed away from God and are imprisoned by the evil one. Things are going to change. During the coming time of Jubilee, God is going to bring families back together supernaturally.

4. Increase from the Field
"For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field" Leviticus 25:12. Slave owners ate the finest from the field-the increase. Slaves ate the leftovers. That is about to change. Increase of the fields refers to prosperity. You are going to get all of it, not the scraps! God wants to move supernaturally during the coming Jubilee season.

5. Freedom from Oppression
"If thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another" Leviticus 25:14. When God pours out supernatural blessing during the coming Jubilee season, the devil will no longer be able to oppress you. People will no longer oppress you. You will get out of trouble and debt! Financial oppression will be history for believers who understand and act on what is coming!

6. Safety
"Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety" Leviticus 25:18. God is going to protect your finances, despite what continues to happen among the uncertain economic challenges. During recent months, the world has lost billions of dollars. The stock market has been chaotic. Many banks have failed. Corporations that once seemed ironclad have gone bankrupt. People who were rich one day have discovered that all their money has vanished. Believers who understand and act during the coming season of Jubilee will be protected supernaturally!

7. Triple Blessings
"Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years" Leviticus 25:21. Start claiming these seven blessings for you and your loved ones. Then watch what God does!  

Happy Jubilee!

Please read, mediate and reflect on the following two scriptures:
Luke 1:38  and  Luke 2:19.
What are these scriptures saying to you? Will your life be changed? If so, how?  After reading and reflecting, submit a short paragraph to me on your reflections by  February 4th at 6:00 pm . I will review and select a few to be posted in the Feb. PV.

It is a New Year....When we reflect on 2016 I must honestly say that we

experienced disappointments, heartaches, and losses. I must also acknowledge He has proven to be our Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rapha, and our Jehovah Shalom. Without Him, we would not have made it this far. Join me as I remember and reflect on the song written by
Andre Crouch "Through it All:" 

Yes, I can I've had many tears and sorrows
 I've had questions for tomorrow
 There've been times I didn't know right from wrong
 But in every situation God gave blessed consolation
 That my trials only come to make me strong.

Chorus:
 Through it all, through it all
 Through it all, through it all
 I've learned to trust in Jesus
 I've learned to trust in God
 Through it all, through it all
 Through it all, through it all
 I've learned to depend upon His Word.
 
I am expecting great things this year of Jubilee! No one can do it all. No man or woman is an island unto him or herself. We need each other to survive. I need you to STEP UP! If you are between the ages of 15 to 40 I need you to begin to take your rightful place. I need young men and women who are willing to say "Here am I."
 
This is the year we want to use our past to motivate and propel us into the future, not to anchor us to the past. This is the year when all debts are free and new beginnings burst forth. This is the year of the abundance of rain. This is the time to sow bountifully so you will reap a bountiful harvest. Remember 2 Corinthians 9:6: "Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously."
 
Can I count on you?
