Faith; Your Ticket to Jubilee

Luke 4:16 And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. 17 And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”

Amp – the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly
Nlt – that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.
Mess – God’s year to act

THE YEAR OF JUBILEE. (Every 50th yr) – (Atonement)

20 And He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him.
21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

22 And all were speaking well of Him, and wondering at the gracious words which were falling from His lips; and they were saying, “Is this not Joseph’s son?” 23 And He said to them, “No doubt you will quote this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we heard was done at Capernaum, do here in your hometown as well.’” 24 And He said, “Truly I say to you, no prophet is welcome in his hometown.

MARK 6 “In His home town

25 But I say to you in truth, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the sky was shut up for three years and six months, when a great famine came over all the land; 26 and yet Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.
27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”

WE SEE HEALING IN JUBILEE

Gal 3:13-14… Redeemed from curse!
In Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come upon the gentile

Duet 28 – Sickness… anything not even mentioned in the law!

2 Cor 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich. (PROVISION)

Matt 8:17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “He Himself took our infirmities and carried away our diseases.”

Isaiah 53:4 Surely our Sicknesses He Himself bore, And our pains He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being (PEACE) fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.

PROVISION AND HEALING ARE PROVIDED IN JUBILEE!
(3 John 2)
(Psalm 105:37 “Brought them out w silver & gold – no sick)

Mark 5 WOMAN WITH ISSUE OF BLOOD!

Psalm 107:20 “He sent his Word and healed me and delievered me”

Luke 5:17 “Seeing their faith said, man your sins are forgiven”

23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins have been forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 24 But, so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,”—He said to the paralytic—“I say to you, get up, and pick up your stretcher and go home.”

Other people’s failure to receive never reveals God’s character!
