Cosmic "Do-Over"

My brothers and I used to play a board game as children named “Stratego”.  Recently I noticed it is still for sale in stores today, so I guess it remains popular.  The basic premise involves a war game with moving pieces comprising an imaginary military unit.  The ultimate goal is to capture your opponent’s flag while avoiding a minefield of obstacles and adversaries. 

Apparently we weren’t very good sports in my family,  If someone was getting badly beaten he or she (or more accurately me) would flip the board over and declare a “Do-Over”—or a rearranging of the pieces in another attempt to be more strategically wise in our placement of assets and flag protection. 

I was surprised to learn that God also has a “Do-over” in the Bible.  According to the scripture, he instructed the Jewish nation in the Old Testament to declare every 50th year “The Year of Jubilee”.  Sounds great doesn’t it?  Jubilee:  Joyous. Celebratory.  Well…like most everything in God’s Kingdom, it has several meanings. 

On one hand it’s a new beginning—a wiping clean of the slate.  It’s a chance to start over again and perhaps live more wisely on the next round.  A cancellation of debts.  A release of servitude and bondage.  One big joyous celebration or, for some,…a Day of Leveling:    

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim freedom for the captives
    and release from darkness for the prisoners,

2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor
    and the day of vengeance of our God,
~Isaiah 61: 1&2

Notice verse 2:  It is BOTH the year of the Lord’s favor AND the day of vengeance.

Jubilees occur after a period of seven sevens (or 49 years) when God requires a BIG reset or Sabbath.  No one knows for sure when this year occurs in modern times.  There is much speculation as to when the very first Jubilee began and what phase of a Jubilee we are experiencing right now.  It seems no two historical scholars can agree on this. 

However, one thing is for sure.  God’s commands do not change whether or not we honor them.  The only thing that changes is US.  In a previous blog (“Zero Gravitas” dated June 17th) I joked about not believing in gravity.  Do we really think the principle of gravity changes on whether or not we accept its power?  Of course not, and neither do the other principles of God.  God said there would be a Jubilee year every 50 years.  Guess what?…there WILL be a Jubilee EVERY 50 years whether we want one or believe in one.  Just like gravity: it doesn’t matter whether we choose to respect it or we deny its very existence…it simply IS.

American History offers up a perfect analogy.  In 1863 President Lincoln issued “The Emancipation Proclamation”.  He proclaimed “freedom for the captives” so to speak.  It didn’t matter whether the South agreed with the concept or not—the sovereign United States of America declared it to be so.  And so it was.  Interestingly, January 1st, 2013 will be exactly 150 years from this event.  Or perhaps we might say…three Jubilees ago.  

In his best-selling book “The Harbinger”, Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn tells of the eerie similarities playing out in modern U.S. history to the Jewish nation of Israel in the Old Testament.  Nine harbingers or omens preceded Israel’s final downfall in 722 B.C. and ultimately the destruction of that nation.  He claims that United States is “due” for a similar judgment and that all nine harbingers have already manifested in America. 

Today, what are we doing with our abundant American assets?  Are we sending billions of dollars to nations that wish to harm Americans and harm Israel?  How about “flag protection”?  There doesn’t seem to be much of that going on based on the U.S. and Israeli flag burnings throughout the world lately.  Are we willing to set the captives of Roe v. Wade free or must Sovereign God declare an “Emancipation Proclamation” against our disobedient will? 

Everyone knows this is a very significant and important election year.  Will January 2013 be a national celebration...or does God level the playing field and declare an epic “Do-Over”?

I don’t know…But this time it’s not child’s play…

It’s deadly serious.

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed
~Luke 4:18

So may your children's children at the next return of this day of jubilee, after a full century of experience under your national Constitution, celebrate it again in the full enjoyment of all the blessings recognized by you in the commemoration of this day, and of all the blessings promised to the children of Israel upon Mount Gerizim, as the reward of obedience to the law of God.
~John Quincy Adams in his 1839 address “The Jubilee of the Constitution” 

That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State,… shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free
`Abraham Lincoln (The Emancipation Proclamation of 1863)

  1. Shalom, my name is Tony. The greatest concern I have for all those that claim Yahweh as their Father both Jew and Gentile alike, is the fact that most of them don't know that the greatest gathering is at work in a people being called out or what it will take to be one (Remnant).

    Within that concern lies the very foundation of this ministry as we are doing what Yahweh has placed within our hearts and the unity of spirit to: the Call, the Beckoning, the Commission.

    To become what the Bible describes as the Overcomers, the Remnant, those that will begin the new Kingdom who Yahweh is preparing NOW, to be made fit for that Glorious Kingdom that's coming.

    How much you know about our past brothers and sisters being called the Remnant will determine your destination. You must agree that Yahweh always persevered a Remnant unto himself that was spared destruction.

    Now the question is what made THEM so special above His other Children? Why were THEY spared and others died?

    All these questions can be answered as we look into becoming that people, a people who Yahweh is gathering, who's working fruit will be shown as a testimony to all the world as judgment comes once the 2nd Greatest Exodus has completed its journey to Israel and we're all completely out of Babylon.

    Yahweh is calling His people out and the journey begins with a Remnant On the Road to Tsiyon. A ministry with total dedication to finding and gathering those who are in unity of spirit with each other and are receiving the same exact knowledge and wisdom from Yahweh through Eliyahu.

    I am personally contacting you and inviting you to FIRST seek Yahweh about this message as we're only seeking those that Yahweh is drawing, anything less then the Rauch Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) leading you here, Will Not Do.

    We are separating ourselves from this world, it's people, it's teachings, it's religious system of so called Christianity that's under Roman and Greek philosophy, and Judaism in its corrupt and binding self manmade traditions. All stench in His nostrils.

    We are returning to the old paths by learning from a man directly descended from the line of David, Eliyahu ben David, a man you'll come to know as the White Horse Rider, the one sent conquering and to conquer.

    A lot to chew on and it should get you seeking Yahweh, after all everyone in Tsiyon had to, on their own, including me.

    Please don't take anything said as though it were a grain of salt as your life in the near future WILL most definitely depend on it.

    Our testimony for our Saviour Yahshua and the acknowledgment of our Father is about to be tested and tried. Yahweh is separating the sheep from the goats, so come is the call to His sheep, come out of her, and allow Him to guide you into all truth. On the road to Tsiyon, the only way home. Come find out why it's the only way home, please, please, come.

    Hope to see you one day on the road to Tsiyon, sincerely Tony.

    1. I would be curious for you to explain this statement further:

      "We are returning to the old paths by learning from a man directly descended from the line of David, Eliyahu ben David, a man you'll come to know as the White Horse Rider, the one sent conquering and to conquer."
