Behold, A Revelation Jubilee

liberty-bell Behold, a revelation jubilee

In what is called by some the Torah, and by others the Pentateuch, instruction is given for what is called “the year of jubilee,” described in Leviticus 25. It was scheduled to occur once every 50 years.

Behold, a revelation jubilee

In the year of jubilee, debts were forgiven. In the year of jubilee, Israelite slaves were freed. In the year of jubilee, families returned to the land they lived on 50 years ago. This law emphasized that ownership was a temporary phenomenon. This law would prevent the multi-generational concentration of wealth in certain families.

Behold, a revelation jubilee. I have been told that the year of Jubilee was observed during the period of the first temple (10th century BC to 587 BC). It is still considered to be an inspired idea by many. The founders of America had a verse from Leviticus cast on what is now known as the Liberty Bell; “Proclaim liberty throughout the land, and to all the inhabitants thereof.” (Leviticus 25:10, King James Version)

Behold, a revelation jubilee. I mention this to share my answer to one of the questions that was asked at the recent 2016 Encampment of the New Message from God. After listening to the revelation “The Requirements of the Messenger,” we pondered the question “What could the emergence of a New Messenger mean for you, for others, and for the world?” The words that rang and sang inside me were “a religious jubilee.”

Behold, a revelation jubilee. What is involved in this religious jubilee? Certain debts are being forgiven. The debt of Buddhists seeking to escape the world they came to serve. The debt of Christians threatening hell and damnation when God’s plan is to save everyone. The debt of Muslims engaging in war and violence in the name of Islam.

Behold, a revelation jubilee. The year of jubilee could be thought of as a “reset,” a fresh start, a chance to recover from the errors of the past and go forward with greater wisdom. I consider the emergence of the New Message from God to be just such a jubilee.
