The seventh month had arrived and among the children of Israel, a change was beginning to take place. All the activities of a normal day of life were changing as a new sound began coming forth to affect them. Suddenly, “trumpets” began to sound out that a time had arrived for them to become a holy convocation before God. This speaks of doing no customary work of the normal day, but to offer up an offering consumed by fire, unto the Lord. The blowing of this trumpet was a memorial that was to take place once every year. However, we should also note that something different would also happen after each forty-nine-year cycle, when on the fiftieth year another increased event would take place.
This increased event, coming ten days later in the same month on the fiftieth year, following the “sounding of trumpets”, was another special day called the Day of Atonement. This day was also a day when the normal day’s activities were set aside for not only a Sabbath day, but also a call that was to affect the souls of men. Here they were invited to humble themselves before God and worship Him alone. This, God’s “Day of Atonement” speaks of a time of reconciliation for the guilty by divine intervention and sacrifice. God commanded this feast for the purpose of divine forgiveness and restoration, the results of the sacrifice given.
While the children of Israel were to respond and participate in these yearly feasts, with ever seventh year being a year of Sabbath rest, another certain day was coming which would surpass all the other seventh year Day of Atonement. Again, as with the other forty-nine yearly Day of Atonement the trumpet would sound throughout the land, but now the blowing of the trumpets would sound out on the tenth day of the seventh month during this fiftieth year. Every vessel throughout the land of Israel would begin to hear this sound has they responded with joy knowing that a sound of liberty had come for all the needing inhabitants. This was a day of excitement, because the trumpets proclamation of liberty was to those who had lost their inheritance, with many becoming servants or slaves somewhere during the prior forty-nine-year period, mostly because of indebtedness and other reasons. This particular trumpet also meant that a people would be returning to their inherited lands, that which had been lost was now to be returned to them, which means a returning of the land (pointing to a time of resurrection) back to its original purpose.
Lev. 25:9-10 & 13,
“Then you shall cause the trumpet of 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. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim libertythroughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you: and each of you shall return to his possessions, and each of you shall return to his family. … In this year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possessions”.
This is speaking to us and pointing us to a time when all that man lost, because of man’s fall all the way back to Adam, is to be repossessed. This includes liberty to those enslaved with all property restored to the original owner. Included is the remitting of all debt to the indebted and rest was restored to the land. In all this, it is important for us to see clearly that this Year of Jubilee, the Day of Atonement, is but a figure of the mission of Christ, His head with His body that consist of many members.
God’s chosen priesthood ministry, as revealed through Jesus Christ, is to have its complete fulfillment in the completed Christ. The Christ which includes Jesus the Head with His many member body. Thus, a revealed understanding is given that a season of Jubilee is again sounding out for that purpose. This sounding out, even as proclaimed in Isa. 61:1-3, is pointing to a many member Christ, anointed for its complete fulfillment.
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn, to console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified”.
In this, Jesus Christ became the head of His body, which now is to include a body of people consisting of many members. These many members shall likewise follow Him into that holy priesthood of God. This people are the chosen of God and they are to become His light in the world.
1 Peter 2:9,
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light”.
Let us now consider the chain of events that take place involving the High Priest on this Day of Atonement. (Read Heb. 9:1-7). We need to see the importance of that piece of furniture in the holy place called the Altar of Incense. This Altar of Incense (the golden censer) is the article of transition, the piece of furniture that is taken from the Holy place into the Holy of Holies of the tabernacle. This is pointing to an overcoming company of sons who shall enter in corporately with Jesus our High Priest as this altar (the censer) moves beyond the veil. This moving altar is the fulfillment of the Day of Atonement, which is drawing near and is even now upon us. Here we speak of a time of complete restoration and the birthing of God’s man-child, the results of the year of Jubilee. This birthing involves a maturing process that begins in the Outer court, then a sanctification through the Holy place realm. Then, to finally know a complete birthing into the presence of God. This is a birthing, a standing in God’s Holy of Holies, His throne-room. Herein this overcoming people stand in the throne room authority of God to receive from Him the fullness of their inheritance and to know the reality of the Feast of Tabernacles.
Is this the reason that creation groans today? Are not these many sons of God even now hearing the trumpet sounding out their year of Jubilee Atonement wherein a birthing is taking place unto its completeness?
“For I consider that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly awaits the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope [the Holy place is that realm of hope], because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body”.
In all these things, the trumpets, the moving of the Altar of Incense (golden censer) and the standing before God in the Holy of Holies is drawing for us a picture of the complete fulfillment of God’s spiritual Day of Atonement and the Year of Jubilee, birthing a people into the Feast of Tabernacles. Let’s now consider the fact that Jesus Christ, the head of Christ’ many member body, has become the fulfiller of all these events. In fulfilling these events, He now sets with God in His throne room authority releasing the fulfillment of these events in and throughout His body (the Feast of Tabernacles). Thus, we have times and seasons established by God for such fulfillment. Where are we, God’s people now and what season are we in? While the Children of Israel followed and became the expression of these natural events, and with the church having received His divine order for the spiritual expression, that is those who have receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit for sanctification, what is next?
Could it not be said, that the true church is likened unto a spiritual womb and has, in union with Christ in the holy place, became pregnant and is now being brought to a time of delivery? With this being a truth, the true church is now in the season for her delivery. It is now time for her man-child, as revealed in Rev. twelfth chapter, to know its birthing. This birthing shall change the course of this world and all upon it.
God’s Year of Jubilee is the season that is again come upon us. This speaks that trumpets are beginning to sound as a people, those hearing these sounding trumpets, are responding to fulfill this event. This means for us that God’s first-fruits are becoming the fulfilled expression of this Altar of Incense. This has the meaning for us in that these first-fruits are now making the final sacrifice needed to birth such a man-child. These, freely positioned upon the altar, much like Abraham’s son Isaac, to remove the old fallen nature and move totally into the nature of the risen Christ. That is, the sacrifice that God supplies in our place, the lamb slain before the foundation of the world, has been totally accepted by God and is being fulfilled in Christ many member body.
With the trumpets now sounding throughout the earth, the Altar of Incense is now moving. Along with the High Priest, Jesus Christ, this Altar of Incense birthing moves them into the Holy of Holies, into the presence of the Almighty God. This same first-fruits company, those who have willingly died to self upon the Altar of Incense are birthed into God’s presence. This is speaking of a spiritual moving into a new dimension with God as these now stand in God’s throne room authority. A people with the nature of Christ because of resurrection’s power that replaces the fallen nature of Adam. The Christ nature in this new creation is now to minister and establish the kingdom of God unto all the earth.
The outcome of this throne room authority means that the kingdom of Babylon, which has established itself throughout the earth, is to know destruction. Who and what are these modern day Babylonian kingdoms. They are the political, economic and carnal religious kingdoms that seek to rule over all the earth. However, because of the ministry of these man-child authorities, the throne room of God dwellers, Babylon and all it is shall fall.
“And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury. And I heard another voice from heaven saying, come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities”.
The Day of Atonement and year of Jubilee has come and a sounding out of the trumpets is blowing throughout the land. Unto those who are hearing and responding to this trumpet sound, a movement is taking place. This is a movement into another realm of God, which declares and manifest that a birthing has taking place. Now this man-child, birthed unto God, moves by the Spirit into the presence of God. Herein, in God’s presence, this new creation man is becoming a people who now dwell in God’s throne room authority, which is a moving from one dimension of God into another. These are not being removed from the sight of man, but rather they are manifesting the fullness of God’s nature upon earth.
In this, they establish the kingdom of God as the Christ and His body is to now rule over all the earth. Now is the season for His appearance, as the Christ appears in and through His body of people. Unto this, we say again, a birthing into God’s presence is now come. Thus, a loud declaration is coming forth, come forth you sons come forth.
“For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the first-fruits of the Spirit [Holy place], even we ourselves groan within ourselves eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our bodies [moving into the Holy of Holies]”.
A people birthed into His throne-room presence, His kings and priest.
