Dear Friends, LBM NEWSLETTER FOR SEPTEMBER 2015
As promised I am sending this newsletter out early to try to encourage you to stay up to date on God events happening this month. I never want to present prophetic events to bring fear, when we truly understand these signs, believers will look up and know their redemption draws near.This first event begins this week. It is the Jewish New Year numbered as 5776 or Rosh Hashanah, also known as Feast of Trumpets and begins at sundown Sept. 13 and goes through the 14th ending at sundown. 5776 is very significant because it is a Jubilee year and the 70th Jubilee year since Joshua and Caleb crossed the Jordan River. According to Hebrew numerology, 7 signifies perfection or completion in both spiritual and natural realms. God created all things in 7 days. Likewise the number 6 is associated with mankind and human weaknesses. It is the number of man as man was created on the 6th day.5776 will be a year for our weaknesses to be exposed, but also for God’s perfection to shine through. This is a year to surrender our weakness for His perfection of grace–that is a true Jubilee!
“When we are weak, we are strong in Him.” 2 Cor. 12:10
The Hebrew word “yovel” (Jubilee) means trumpet or ram’s horn (Shofar). Ram’s horns are blown to announce the beginning of Sabbaths and holidays, and in Biblical times they were also used at the coronation of a king, or to rally the people to battle. Also, at this special time of Jubilee, every 50 years, ram’s horns are blown on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) to announce the beginning of Jubilee. This is important because during the days of Joshua, the land of Canaan was dispersed among the families and tribes, and the land permanently belonged to that tribe or family. You can lease it, or temporarily sell it, but ultimately the land is returned to your family during the Jubilee year. The land reverts to to its original owner
When the ram’s horn was blown on the Day of Atonement, debts were released, land was returned, and men and women were released from slavery! The slate was wiped clean. Isn’t that amazing? Isn’t that profound? The Jubilee year insured Joshua and his people two things: FREEDOM AND INHERITANCE. Let’s claim those two things with our Jubilee time this September. Has your inheritance been lost or stolen? This is the year to spiritually move forward and claim that return.
This September 13 brings to an end the Shemitah year. During the last two Shemitah cycles, we witnessed record-breaking stock market crashes.
The four blood moons that have received so much press coincide with the Shemitah year 5775, and our upcoming Jubilee year 5776. A jubilee year comes after 7 sabbatical cycles of 7 years…that is 7 sets of 6 years, plus a Shemitah year…49 years, and then a Jubilee release!
This year, the last blood moon is coinciding with the end of the Shemitah year and the beginning of the Jubilee year—truly amazing. On September 13 there will be a partial solar eclipse.
On September 15, the 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this day. It is widely reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which will give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state within Israeli borders just shortly after the new session begins.
On September 17 this is the deadline for Congress to vote on Obama’s deal with Iran.
September 21 this is when the Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) is projected to begin.
September 23 is Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement
September 23 Pope Francis arrives at White House to meet with President Obama
September 28 First day of the Feast of Tabernacles. This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical Festival dates during 2014 ad 2015. This blood moon will be a “supermoon” and it will be clearly visible from the city of Jerusalem.
As you can see, this month is very special. None of these events are coincidences. God is a God of order and He is very organized. God designed the Jewish year’s seven special festivals around His prophetic calendar. Many of these festivals prophetic events were fulfilled during the life and death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus.
Best known is Passover announcing spring promising new life and harvest. At Passover, a spotless lamb was slain to apply blood on the door of the home and to be roasted for a festal meal, picturing Calvary. “Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.”(1 Cor. 5:7) The Jewish people celebrate exodus from slavery, and Christians find liberation from sin and death through the cross. We are redeemed by the “precious blood of Christ, s of a lamb without blemish (1 Peter 1:19-20)So many of the feasts were fulfilled by Christ but still have prophetic implications for us, the Church today.
Keep looking up, your redemption draws near!
You are loved and prayed for by me.
