Prosperity of the Lord # 6
We’re going to continue to be teaching on “The Prosperity of the Lord.” And what I want to deal with today is an aspect of our “Triple Harvest;” How to tap into it and we’re going to begin with Jubilee. Actually from the Jewish calendar were in Jubilee right now, until October. But in studying this out the Lord always moves with Israel first and then it comes to the church.
I) The church is about ready to enter in to Jubilee. But as I ministered on this the few months ago the Lord began to reveal something to me about a PERMANENT JUBILEE and A TRIPLE HARVEST.
A) Turn with me to Psalms 89.
1) The JUBILEE ACTUALLY MEANS, “RAMS HORN or TRUMPET” but it also refers to “HEARING THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET.”
a) Jubilee would actually begin after seven times seven years, 49 years. Jubilee would begin in the 50th year.
b) When that 50th year of would draw near people that have lost their land would stand on the border of that land waiting for the trumpet to sound.
(i) When they heard the sound of the trumpet they would say, “I’m returning to my family and regaining my possessions.”
(ii) There was debt cancellation; slaves were set free. It was a brand-new start in life.
(iii) Some of you are going to get a hold of this message and begin to see your debt counseled. The bondages that held you captive will be broken and some of you are going to get a brand-new start in life.
2) For these things to come to pass you’re going to have to hear the sound of the trumpet.
3) I believe, and I think the spirit to God bears this out, that today THE GOSPEL IS THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET.
a) And that you’re salvation (the full meaning of salvation) is your ticket to Jubilee.
4) Psalms 89:15a.
a) The words “JOYFUL SOUND” in this verse refers to THE SOUND OF THE TRUMPET.
(i) Salvation and the Gospel (good news) is the sound of that trumpet.
(ii) Did you know JESUS IS OUR ALL IN ALL. All the benefits, anointings, and blessings of God are found in Jesus.
(iii) Our salvation is not Jesus plus something else. It’s all found in Jesus.
b) To go back to Psalms 85:15 and notice the Word “KNOW.”
(i) You have to know some things about salvation and what belongs to us because we are found in Jesus before you’re going to be able to walk down the street and people will look at you and say you are blessed.
B) Leviticus 25:8-13. (The trumpet of Jubilee to sound is that joyful sound)
1) The Gospel is the Jubilee.
a) Paul said in (1st Thessalonians 1:5) that he didn’t come to preach the Gospel unto them in Word only BUT IN POWER, IN THE HOLY GHOST and IN MUCH ASSURANCE.
(i) That’s the type of Gospel that you need to hear and that’s the type of Gospel that will take you into Jubilee.
(ii) When the Gospel is preached in power, preached in the anointing, and preached in the Holy Ghost.
2) Now in this year of Jubilee they were not allowed to sow anything (plant seed) and they were not allowed to reap from the field (harvest).
a) What he was doing was developing them in His faithfulness.
(i) In other words he was saying, “I want you to trust me for these 12 months.”
(ii) “I don’t want you to sow seed and I don’t want you to reap of that seed. I want you to totally depend upon me, to trust me.”
b) Now he said to them that he didn’t want them to reap of the field or sow seed in the year.
(i) IF THEY DIDN’T SOW SEED IN THAT YEAR THEY WEREN’T GOING HAVE A HARVEST THE NEXT YEAR.
3) Look at Leviticus 25:18-20.
a) What God was getting them to do was to develop their faith in His faithfulness.
b) If a person really doesn’t know the faithfulness of God your faith is not working at its full potential.
(i) When you know that God is not a man that he should lie, if you know that God would never let you down, your faith can be strong; you’ll be fully persuaded.
c) So God wanted to teach them how to trust His faithfulness.
(i) Just like what it says in (Proverbs 3:5) “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not to thine own understanding.”
4) Now look at the 21st verse that’s really THE TRIPLE HARVEST. (Leviticus 25:21).
a) You know what God was trying to do hear. He was saying if I tell you to do something even though it may not look right do it and I will take care of you. Triple harvest.
II) Turn to Romans 1:16.
A) Many in the body of Christ have missed this. “SALVATION” is not the same as “THE NEW BIRTH.”
1) The new birth is an aspect of salvation, but salvation means a whole lot more.
a) We receive the new birth and prepared to go to heaven.
b) Salvation is really your Jubilee.
(i) Salvation means new birth but also means soundness, safety, healing, deliverance, it means the blessings of God that’s your Jubilee.
(ii) Salvation is your trumpet of Jubilee. We don’t have to wait to hear trumpet. The next trumpet we hear were out of here.
(iii) So many in the body of Christ are not tapping into their salvation and the full meaning of it and therefore they’re missing their Jubilee.
(iv) The Lord wants you to have a Jubilee every day of your life.
2) Hebrews 2:1-3a. (Escape poverty, sickness and disease, early death, despair, all pressure and, depression. How shall we escape these things if we neglect so great salvation?
a) You’re not just born-again and a child of God waiting to go to heaven.
b) But you’re a child of God that should be walking in this great salvation.
B) Turn to Luke chapter 4. Jesus was touching on some things about a permanent Jubilee. Jesus is the fulfillment of the believers Jubilee. And he released the Jubilee anointing.
1) Now look at Luke 4:18-19. (Preach the Gospel; preach your Jubilee)
a) The acceptable year of the Lord is your Jubilee.
2) Turn to Deuteronomy 28:1-14.
a) How do you begin to walk in their Jubilee?
b) 1st of all Jesus has to be your Lord and savior.
c) 2nd you have to know the Jesus is your Jubilee.
d) 3rd you have to BELIEVE that God wants you blessed.
e) And 4th whatever God says to do, do it.
3) Jesus is your Jubilee and he came to declare unto you that YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE POOR KNOW MORE. YOU HAVE TO BE SICK ANY LONGER. YOU HAVE TO BE TORMENTED ANYMORE. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE IN BONDAGE ANYMORE.
4) But he came to declare that prosperity is yours. Healing is yours. Deliverance is yours. Freedom and Liberty are yours. And Victory is yours.
a) YOU’RE IN A COVENANT WITH ALMIGHTY GOD and every blessing that God has in heaven has already been commanded to come on you and overtake you if you’ll do what God says to do and you’ll believe what he says, in his Word, belongs to you.
