Oh, how magnificent is our great and mighty God to speak directly from His heart and give us our theme, a direction for this year, 2016.
We find ourselves in the midst of a year of Jubilee, from September 2015 to September 2016. The shofar has already sounded and announced this year of the Jubilee which is the 50th year after seven cycles of seven years, when specific instructions about property and slavery took effect in Jewish history. The blast of the trumpet took place on the Day of Atonement, signifying a call to joy, liberation, restoration and the beginning of a year for doing justice and mercy.
Isaiah, the faithful servant of God and messianic prophet announced to the nation of Israel to: “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” (Isaiah 60:1-3)
As the darkness gets even darker, and the grays disappear, the light and brightness of God’s glory which flows from God’s people will manifest and pierce the darkness and evil in the people of all nations and worshippers of false gods. It is time to ARISE and SHINE and invite and welcome the Holy Spirit to manifest the glory of God and let His power flow out from within us to set the captive free in this Jubilee year. It is going to be a victorious year for God’s people to see and witness His glory and power with expectancy!
These are the days of Elijah and as Jonathan Kahn has said, “Let us be the Elijahs of our day.” Oh, may His church, His bride adore Him, adore Him, adore Him!!
Jesus will soon return for His faithful followers – “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. For this reason you must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.” (Matthew 24:42-44)
