2018 ST Message Eleven

Week 11

The Jubilee (2)

Opening Word of the Prophesying Meeting

Reading the verses in each day.

Reading the main points in the outlines.

Pray-reading the verses:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,…those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee”—Luke 4:18-19

For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death—Rom. 8:2

Word of Appetizer

God’s salvation causes us to have real freedom, how can we be released and have real freedom?

We can be released and have real freedom only by enjoying Christ as the life-giving Spirit; only those who enjoy God do not commit sin and are really free, living a life of liberty, release, and freedom from bondage. A Christian should not live by the power of his will but by the power

of the inner law of the Spirit of resurrection life in his spirit; this law possesses the greatest power; it overcomes death, transcends death, and is not bound by death.

Spiritual Burden

God’s salvation causes us to have real freedom; our possession is God, and our freedom comes from our enjoyment of God; the law of the Spirit of life has freed us in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death; this is the freedom of Christ as the jubilee; We can cooperate with the installed and inner operating law of the Spirit of life by exercising our spirit to “switch on” this law so that we can enjoy Christ as the freedom and living of the jubilee.

We need to be today’s ministers and witnesses by living and proclaiming the gospel—Christ as the jubilee of grace—for the accomplishing of God’s eternal economy.

Concluding Word of the Prophesying Meeting

The Revelation of the Truth

Announcing the gospel to the poor, proclaiming release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, and sending away in release those who are oppressed are the freedoms and blessings of the jubilee.

God’s salvation causes us to have real freedom; our possession is God, and our freedom comes from our enjoyment of God.

Paul’s desperate cry in Romans 7:24 is answered in Romans 8:2, which says that the law of the Spirit of life has freed us in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death; this is the freedom of

Christ as the jubilee.

The living of the jubilee is a living in the enjoyment of Christ, a living of enjoying God as our inheritance and real freedom.

The Experience of Life

The divine birth has transferred us into a new realm, the realm of the divine life with its law in our spirit, a realm in which there is no sin, world, or flesh; In this realm all victories are spontaneous, automatic, unconscious, and effortless because the law of the Spirit of life is upholding us, not our

own will; We have the law of the Spirit of life indwelling our spirit as the presence of God, the speaking of God, the meeting with God, and the dispensing of God.

Practice and Application

We can cooperate with the installed and inner operating law of the Spirit of life by exercising our spirit to “switch on” this law so that we can enjoy Christ as the freedom and living of the jubilee;

The best way to switch on the divine and mystical “current” of the flowing Spirit in our spirit is to call on the name of the Lord Jesus.

By setting our mind on the spirit, we enjoy Christ as the jubilee—“the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace”.

Using Key Verses to Have a Bird’s-Eye View over the Whole Outline

Key Verses (1)

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,…those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee”—Luke 4:18-19

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free—John 8:32

Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin—John 8:34

If therefore the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed—John 8:36

God’s salvation causes us to have real freedom; our possession is God, and our freedom comes from our enjoyment of God

I Announcing the gospel to the poor, proclaiming release to thecaptives and recovery of sight to the blind, and sending away inrelease those who are oppressed are the freedoms and blessings of the jubilee.

  • The proclaiming of liberty in the New Testament jubilee to all the sinners sold under sin that they may return to God and God’s family, the household of God, and may rejoice with shouting in the New Testament enjoyment of God’s salvation.
  • Our preaching of the gospel is our blowing of the trumpet of redemption to proclaim to the world, “Behold, now is the well-acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation,” the year of jubilee.

II God’s salvation causes us to have real freedom; our possession isGod, and our freedom comes from our enjoyment of God:

  • If man does not enjoy God, he cannot have real freedom; freedom means release, to be freed from all bondage, all heavy burden, all oppression, and all enslavement.
  • Everything in our life can be a bondage to us, and we can be slaves under any matter.

Key Verses (2)

For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death—Rom. 8:2

That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit—Rom. 8:4

For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace—Rom. 8:6

The law of the Spirit of life has freed us in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death

We can be released and have real freedom only by enjoying Christ as the life-giving Spirit; only those who enjoy God do not commit sin and are really free, living a life of liberty, release, and freedom from bondage.

Paul made a great discovery in receiving the revelation of the Triune God being processed through incarnation, human living, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension to become the law of the Spirit of life installed in our spirit.

The law of the Spirit of life is the automatic principle and spontaneous power of the divine life; it is the natural characteristic and the innate, automatic function of the divine life.

We can cooperate with the installed and inner operating law of the Spirit of life by exercising our spirit to “switch on” this law so that we can enjoy Christ as the freedom and living of the jubilee.

By setting our mind on the spirit, we enjoy Christ as the jubilee—“the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace”.

Key Verses (3)

To open their eyes, to turn them from darkness to light and from the authority of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me—Acts 26:18

If therefore the Son  a sets you free, you shall be free indeed—John 8:36

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice—Phil. 4:4

The living of the jubilee is a living in the enjoyment of Christ, a living of enjoying God as our inheritance and real freedom

To be in the jubilee is to eat the Lord Jesus as the real produce of the good land, take Him as our dwelling place for our rest, and be freed from the slavery of sin and from the bondage of law and religion.

The only way to be released from the three kinds of labor in human life—the labor to be a good person, the labor of anxiety, and the labor of suffering—is to take Christ as our enjoyment, satisfaction, and rest.

The Christian life should be a life full of enjoying the Lord, a life full of joy and praises; when we enjoy the Lord fully, He becomes our jubilee.

The living of the jubilee is a life in which we take God Himself, Christ Himself, in every situation.

We need to be today’s ministers and witnesses by living and proclaiming the gospel—Christ as the jubilee of grace—for the accomplishing of God’s eternal economy.
