The word jubile can mean, ‘the sound of a trumpet,’ ‘a trumpet-blast of liberty’ and/or ‘a shout of joy’. A Trumpet is commanded to sound in the Jubilee Year as signal of the year of release for all the people who will hear the sound and come to the ingathering of the congregation. It is a day of great rejoicing for the House of Israel, a Day of Atonement, salvation, liberty, restoration and comfort. In days of ole, the Jubilee year was announced by a blast on a shofar, an instrument made from a ram’s horn, during that year’s Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement.
The Trumpet of Jubilee
“And you shall number seven sabbaths of years unto you, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto you forty and nine years. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And you 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 you shall return every man unto his possession and you shall return every man unto his family.”Moses, Leviticus 25:8-10
Blow the Trumpet in Zion
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My Holy Mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the Day of the LORD comes, for it is near at hand…
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation…”
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all people; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy… And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the Name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in [New] Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD has said, and in the Remnant whom the LORD shall call.”Joel 2
‘The Anointed One’ of God
The word Messiah is a Hebrew word meaning ‘Anointed One’. The word Christ is the Greek word that means the same. From days of old, priests and kings have been anointed with oil or chrism symbolizing the Holy Spirit of God being placed upon them.
In the Gospel of Luke we find there was delivered to Jesus the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
‘The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the gospel/good tidings to the poor/meek; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised/oppressed. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord…’
He closed the book, gave it again to the minister and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the congregation were fastened on him. He began to say to them, ‘This day this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.’Jesus, Luke 4:17-21
This Scripture fulfilled? What Scripture? How? Why did he stop in the middle of the sentence while two more components remained? Here is what he was reading from in chapter 61 of the book of Isaiah:
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison (“salvation from sin”) to them that are bound. To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD…
Jesus stopped there, but Isaiah’s prophecy goes on to say:
the Day of vengeance of our God; to Comfort all that mourn.
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called Trees of Righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified…
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.”Isaiah 61
This Day this Scripture is fulfilled in your eyes and ears. Who has ears to hear let him hear.
Concerning the Trumpet
“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”Paul, 1 Corinthians 15:50-53
The Voice of the Archangel as the Trumpet
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel (“Chief Messenger”), and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet (as with the ‘called out ones’) the Lord in the air/breath/spirit: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”Paul, 1 Thessalonians 4:16
Some purport this is the doctrine of Rapture. But this idea is nothing more than the vain imagination of man.
“Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD returns the captives of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.”Psalms 14:7
“And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of My Mountain: and My Elect shall inherit it and My servants shall dwell there. And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for My people that have sought Me.”
But you are they that forsake the LORD, that forget My Holy Mountain… Therefore I will number you to the sword, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but did evil before My eyes, and did not choose that wherein I delight. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, ‘Behold, My servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry. My servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty. My servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed.
For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”Isaiah 65:9-17
A New Heaven and Earth
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away… And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is made up of people and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people; God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. He said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.”John, Revelation 21:1-5
The Law is a Shadow
“For the law having a shadow of good things to come and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered?
…For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins… For every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God. From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.”Barnabas, Hebrews 10:1, 4, 12-13
The Promise of God
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before that great and dreadful/terrible Day of the LORD…”Malachi 4
“For Moses truly said to the fathers, ‘A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me: him shall you hear in all things whatsoever he shall say to you…”Acts of the Apostles 3:22; Deuteronomy 18:15-19
“But the Comforter, which is of the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance whatsoever I have said to you.”Jesus, Gospel of John 14:26
“His disciples asked him saying, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must first come? And Jesus answered and said to them, Elijah truly first shall come and restore all things. But I say unto you, he has come already…”Jesus, Gospel of Matthew 17:10-12
The Great Sound of a Trumpet
“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his Elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”Jesus, Matthew 24:31
“Then shall the Righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Who has ears to hear let him hear.’Jesus, Matthew 13:43
“Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, from the day that the foundation of the LORD’S temple was laid, consider it. Is the seed yet in the barn? Yes, as yet the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree, has not brought forth: from this day will I bless you.”Haggai 2:18-19
The Truth shall set you Free
Jesus is the High Priest who made the Atonement offering, the acceptable offering to God for the forgiveness of sin for the children of Israel. With his dying breath he said, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” He said to his disciples, “If you continue in my word, you will be my disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” Moses told Israel that in the end times their enemies would be found to be liars unto them. So again, we must have discernment to know the truth from the lies. Those who lead you cause you to go astray with their lies and their love of money. God says, “Return unto Me, and I will return unto you.” The time is now to come out from among the liars and return to the truth of God’s Word.
Why is there such tribulation upon the earth? Because this is a nation that does not obey the voice of the LORD their God, nor receives correction: truth is perished and is cut off from their mouth. There is no truth in them. Therefore, they suffer Great Tribulation at the hand of their enemies. The year of Jubilee is the time of release and return. Let him who has ears to hear, hear.
