There is something very important that we should know as Christians. The Bible says that salvation is of the Jews. What does this mean? Is it that our savior Yahushua comes from the Jews? Of course yes. Now, why is it that Yahushua Mashiach himself said that salvation is for the Jews? Salvation is the word of God that changes you. The word of God is a standard for living that God gave the Jews to follow and live by it in order to avoid destruction of their own lives. Christ/Mashiach came physically and cemented it by teaching us love. He died on the cross for our sins, he rose again from the death and the one who believes is given the Holy Spirit and you are given the right to become a child of God. Christ/Mashiach is the word of God ( John 1:1-5)
We must have heard everyone saying this is a year of liberation, a year of new beginning and you would wonder what all this means. Yes indeed it is a year of liberation. How is this so?
In Leviticus 25, I will paraphrase. God gave instructions to the Jews on how to live. Every 6 years to farm the land and get produce, the 7th year to be a year of rest, a Sabbath year. Where they will not farm the land, but can harvest grapes, olives etc. just to feed themselves, nothing will be sold that year that comes from their farms. Now God told them to count 7 Sabbath years which gives 49 and then he told them that the 50th year after 7 Sabbaths years, is a year of liberation. In this year, you have to liberate your debtors. You have to give what rightly belongs to them. They can start their lives from afresh with their property that rightly belonged to them. 2015 is the 70th Jubilee after the Lord gave the Jews this instruction. From the year 2000 till this year is 40 jubilees.
Today there is a new way to be partakers of this Jubilee. When you believe, the holy Spirit is given to you and you become a member of the family of God’s Kingdom. How can this be? When you are given the Holy Spirit and when you put the word of God on your lips and write it in your hearts(live according to what the word of God says, make the word a standard for your life), then you are in union with Christ/Mashiach Yahushua , then grace is with you. When you call the name of Yahushua in any situation you will be saved, because you are part of the kingdom of God. God knows those who are his children, you cannot have the word in you and then have the fruit of sin, this are two things that cannot move hand in hand.
Yahushua is the one who fights our right for us this Jubilee. The word of God has not changed and no word from it will fail to take place. God makes us understand that so long as night and day exists, his word stands. So this Jubilee that was given still stands and this year is a Jubilee. But Christ/Mashiach is the one who fights for us now. Christ/Mashiach is the climax of righteousness to those who believe(Romans 10:4). How is he the climax of righteousness? He lived a blameless life without sin here on earth. He fights for those who take his word and put it on their lips and write it on their hearts, those who act faith with love. How can you act faith with love? When you decide to do the word of God with love, not with evil motives. For instance, you choose to help a brother or sister, with the intention that some other person should see what you are doing and giving praise to yourself, this is faith but with no love. This kind of person cuts himself from Yahushua and departs from grace (gal 5:4-6). The person who acts faith with love is the person whom the Lord will direct towards riches hidden in secret places and treasures in the dark. You will find wealth following you. You will be connected to people that matter.
There is good news this year. You will be liberated from every spiritual force that has held your plans of the will of God, if you live as true Christians or Followers of Christ. For all things in this world belongs to God and the one who is in Christ this year, Christ will fight your battle for you and give you your rights.
HERE IS MY ADVICE ON HOW TO LIVE AS A CHRISTIAN:
If you have not yet given your life to Christ/Mashiach, you repeat this prayer: Dear Lord Yahushua, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Yahushua’ name Amen
