Time, as established by God, was and is for His purpose to usher in the seasons as they were formatted by Him. These seasons were established to bring forth the fulfillment of that for which He had already eternally purposed. Humanity, affected by each season’s purpose, is being touched and dealt with according to that for which God has planned. In this, pro or con, mankind finds themselves in the position of choice. Humanity must choose to come into agreement with each season’s purpose or rebel under the covering of self and all selfish desires. Will we remain being our own man or will we allow God to fulfill in us His purpose for that particular season? To those who yield themselves to the ways of God a certainty exists for all overcomers. This word “certainty”, is a word from the dictionary that speaks loudly to us with this meaning, “the quality, state, or fact of being certain (fixed, settled or determined), a firm, settled belief or positiveness in the truth of something”. Thus, a people of certainty who in overcoming self. These are finding themselves moved by a higher power, possessing and manifesting God’s seasonal purpose. A knowing that God is well able to fulfill all things that He has spoken.
In this truth, time has brought another season upon humanity, a season that shall affect each vessel according to their stand in responding to the purpose revealed. Humanity, in each present tense season begins by hearing a sounding trumpet, which is the revealed word of God. These sounding trumpets bring forth a proclamation of God’s purposed activity. With the sounding of each trumpet, a necessary requirement begins to take place. (Read Ezek. 12:17-28) especially noting verses 27-28, “Son of man, look, the house of Israel [representing today’s carnal house of man’s religious activities] is saying, the vision that he sees is for many days from now, and he prophesies of times far off. Therefore, say to them, thus says the Lord God: None of my words will be postponed any more, but the word which I speak will be done, says the Lord God”.
Here God is speaking of a time to be brought forth as the results of humanity’s need for judgment. He is also speaking of a time when the uncovering of false teachings, as they are coming forth from foolish prophets and teachers, will set the captives and the prisoners free. In this a very important question to ask is, what time and season is the Christian community in today? What are the sounding trumpets from God now proclaiming? In this remember, God has promised His people a certain season, a time of rejoicing as He establishes His kingdom here on earth. The prelude to that manifesting kingdom is called the Year of Jubilee, the fiftieth year Day of Atonement, which ushers in the greater feast, which is the last of God’s three main feasts, the Feast of Tabernacles. “Prelude” is a word meaning, “anything serving as the introduction to a principal event, action, performance and opening”.
God, in establishing His ordained feasts, first promoted them as laws among the Children of Israel and is now bringing them forth in a greater fulfillment through His church ushering in God’s kingdom on earth. These feasts, established by God for increased fulfillment, releases the authority of each particular feast as they affect humankind. Even now a trumpet is sounding forth and from those dwelling in the Feast of Pentecost, God is ushering in the greater feast through God’s Day of Atonement as concerning the Year of Jubilee. What is this Year of Jubilee to accomplish where the church is concerned?
Lev. 25:8-10 declares, “And you shall count seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven time seven years; and the time of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land [your land, consider your being, the body, soul and spirit as your land]. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land [your body] to all its inhabitants [characteristics]. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession [what did we lose in Adams fall?], and each of you shall return to his family [your God given inheritance]”. This word “liberty” used in the above scripture expresses “complete freedom, release and a setting free.” This is a people that are released from the influences and effects of the sin nature.
Here, it would be well for us to remember, that the Year of Jubilee takes place in the fiftieth year, pointing to the number fifty, a number, which brings into focus the Feast of Pentecost. Pentecost, the receiving of the power of the Holy Spirit, was the feast that took place fifty days after the Passover Feast. This association of Pentecost reminds us of the anointing power of God, which brings forth the ability that is sufficient to put an end to all flesh, which is the sin nature, the carnal mind of man. This transformation from Pentecost shall bring God’s church into the glorious liberty as God’s Year of Jubilee has typed it. At the sounding of the silver trumpets (pointing to redemption), God’s purposed message is declared as it announces the greatest of all feast. This sounding out declares and manifests the return of all things to their original status according to God’s purpose.
Land (our whole bodies) are to be restored back to their created purpose, a people made in God’s likeness and image, a resurrecting back into a restored living soul. Those who have once been slaves to all types of bondage (spiritual, religious, political, corruption, etc.), but now in Christ are to be made free, each liberated to express the Christ nature from within. This is an over-shadowing of man’s makeup being reconciled back into each vessel’s original purpose in God. (Read I Peter 1:1-13) taking notice of verses 3-5, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time’.
The word “salvation” as used in the above scripture, speaks loudly of “deliverance, preservation, soundness, prosperity, happiness, rescue and general well-being”. This definition speaks of much more than the forgiveness of past sins, but points to a renewing of the complete man. This word used is both in a material, temporal sense and in a spiritual, eternal sense. This speaks of man’s spiritual well-being and a present possession looking for a fuller realization in the future.
We should note that around 6000 years ago, Adam fell and since then 119 Year of Jubilee trumpets have blown. In this light, today’s sounding trumpet of the Year of Jubilee is the announcement of its 120th blowing. This 120 is a number God uses in reference to “the end of all flesh”. Therefore, God is sounding out a message for today that declares man’s available deliverance from the bondage to sin and man’s freedom from the sin nature. This deliverance also speaks of the restoration of man’s inheritance, meaning that a total change is taking place. Here, concerning all overcomers, they enter into God’s total redemption plan.
This announced season of God is the Day of Atonement which takes place as the High Priest moves beyond the veil. This movement takes him from the Holy place and its feast into Gods Holy of Holies and its feast. The sounding of today’s trumpet is a declared message that is releasing the last of God’s three main feasts, the Feast of Tabernacles. This released feast, now coming forth from God, ushers in the manifestation of His spirit through overcoming men that appears in a life-style of unity, of righteousness, of peace and joy. It also includes the ingathering of God’s people into His rest, their restoration and the Christ appearing through the saints. With the Feast of Tabernacles being the third yearly feast and with the sounding of the 120 trumpets, we should note that the number three speaks of completion.
This act of completion corresponds with the seventh (last) trump, which announces to the whole of creation, God’s kingdom is come. Rev. 11:15, “Then the seventh angel sounded: saying, the kingdoms of the world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever”. “Kingdoms of the world” speaks to us of and describes a world system alienated from the life of God. This worldly system is opposed to God because it is under the power of God’s adversary. This is that order which works and expresses itself through all fallen men, which are those who manifest the sin nature. This last trump is the message of full salvation in Christ for all those who have overcome concerning their spirit, soul and body. (Read 1 Cor. 15:50-54).
At this time, a season of God’s purpose, the last trumpet means for humanity that a season for the “end of all flesh” is come. The word “moment” as used in those verses in I Corinthians 15:52, “In and moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed”, speaks more of man’s “atoms” being changed. This shall become a reality as God’s glory fills His many-roomed mansion, His temple, that overcoming men have become. This means that the carnality of all yesterday’s ministries of mixture shall cease and never minister in God’s temple again. Are we, as a people who are overcoming, becoming and manifesting God’s temple? In this, God’s season of change shall manifest a glory unto all God’s creation as it comes forth. Herein the knowledge of God shall cover the earth completely. Isa. 11:9, “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain [Christ and His body, God’s temple]; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea”. This effectual kingdom results as man’s fallen soul becomes a living soul again, one sanctified, resurrected and filled with the nature of Christ.
As yesterday’s season passes unto another, a new day season of God comes forth. The Apostle Paul declares that the passing order or season of the church reveals that it still sees with a mixture and ministers only an in-part order. However, with God’s new sounding trumpet, one that is declaring God’s new season, it is now revealing that mixture for what it is. 2 Thess. 2:8, “And the lawless one will be revealed [the carnal mind and the sin nature], whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth [God’s spirit and word manifesting through the body of Christ] and destroy with the brightness of His coming [His glory living and being revealed through the Christ, head and His many member body]”. In exposing carnality, God is revealing His word as it is manifest through the many member body of Christ. It is for this reason that God has supplied a scapegoat. Lev. 16:10, “But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make atonement upon it, and to let it go as a scapegoat unto the wilderness”.
This scapegoat act is a type of Christ Jesus and signifies for all overcomers the sacrifice is paid because of His death on the cross and His resurrection. In the fulfilling of the scapegoat’s purpose, it speaks of the removal of the overcoming man’s sin nature. This speaks of the overcomers who have passed through the veil of man’s corrupted flesh, his carnal mind, and the soul which this corruptible world has produced. It also speaks of a new birthing of God’s new “living soul” creation man. This birth brings forth God’s man-child, birthed to stand before God in His throne-room. This man-child is moving in and manifesting the nature of Christ for God’s entire creation to behold. This scapegoat prepares man to overcome and come to know the removal of the sin-nature and follow Jesus through the veil of our flesh into the Holy of Holies. How could this be possible but by the end of all our flesh, that which is being accomplished as the sounding of the 120 blowing silver trumpets release that authority. Heb. 11:19-20, “Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, that is, His flesh”.
Herein rest our year of certainty that God has purposed for todays saints. Each season of God has ushered in His purpose for each season and its fulfillment. Today we are hearing another sounding trumpet. The Day of Atonement during the Year of Jubilee which is now ushering in the Feast of Tabernacles. We have a sure thing in God. While darkness abounds, God has already spoken with certainty. Isa. 60:1-2, “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you and His glory will be seen upon you”. A year of certainty is upon us for today’s season. The ushering in the Kingdom of God on earth.
