Shemittah and jubilee-shadows of the rest, redemption and freedom we have different ways to make money in messiah

Johnathan cahn and others were instrumental in introducing shemitah to different ways to make money mainstream christianity and hebrew roots communities.Certain self-proclaimed hebrew roots and messianic teachers and preachers have, over the last several years, successfully made “a dollar and a cent” peddling their books and DVD’s on this subject. These preachers and teachers turned successful authors and religious celebrities different ways to make money have hijacked torah. They have, in effect, repackaged and snazzy’d up the instructions on shemitah and jubilee to appeal different ways to make money to a primarily traditional christian audience. Their erroneous contentions are that the western world is subject different ways to make money to the judgments inherent in not keeping shemitah and jubilee. [I would recommend in addition to this discussion on shemitah, my previous post entitled, “ feast pilgrimages to israel–messianic lessons learned from shemitah.”] members misapplying the instructions on the shemitah and jubilee

Other members of our faith community have misapplied the regulations different ways to make money tied to shemitah and jubilee to their personal vocations and different ways to make money businesses. The members who have misrepresented and misapplied shemitah and jubilee different ways to make money have generally been hebrew roots and messianic congregation and fellowship different ways to make money leaders. They teach false doctrine surrounding shemitah and jubilee that prompt different ways to make money their members to give resources and moneys to their organizations. The dates for shemitah and jubilee have been lost

However, the rabbis did take it upon themselves to establish the different ways to make money first shemitah in the modern state of israel in 1951-52. The last rabbinic-directed shemitah on record was 2014-15. Consequently, many farmers in the land of israel observe the shemitah, although the commandments surrounding shemitah and jubilee are not universally different ways to make money accepted by the jews of the modern state of israel. So what should we make of the shemitah and jubilee different ways to make money as torah observant disciples of messiah?

I believe the reason we have so many physically and different ways to make money spiritually oppressed people in our faith community today is because different ways to make money they have not truly embraced their royal and priestly identities different ways to make money nor have they recognized their redemptive status in messiah. These do not walk in the power and might of different ways to make money the creator’s precious holy spirit. Thus, they’re chronically ill; have never-ending financial problems; undergo continuous turmoil in their lives; are miserable individuals; and I could go on forever. The sh’mittah/shemitah/sabbatical year—allowing the land to rest

Shemittah offered us the opportunity to exercise our faith for different ways to make money that year. If we were faithful in keeping the sabbatical year regulation, father promised an abundant harvest that would cover us from different ways to make money the 6th year’s harvest (ie., the very last possible planting season before shemittah began) and last us up the time that the 8th year’s harvest came in (25:20-22). This was not only faith in action, but also father’s miraculous provision manifested. Jubilee (yovel) freedom

Father described the time as a year of freedom (aka, liberty). In the jubilee, all land property must revert back to its original owner. Beyond land property, slaves and servants were to be released or freed from different ways to make money their servitude and obligation. Any outstanding debts were to be eliminated and treated as different ways to make money having been paid in full by the creditor.

The “right of redemption” provided for that at anytime after someone sells their property different ways to make money to a buyer, they or their next-of-kin could redeem the sold property at an amortized price different ways to make money (25:25-28). Otherwise, the property automatically reverted back to the original owner in different ways to make money the jubilee year without cost to the owner. Themes—shadow pictures—prophesies embedded in shemitah and jubilee

Many messianic jewish congregations throughout the world incorporate into their different ways to make money torah—haftarah readings on shabbat, related readings from the new testament (aka, the brit H’dashah). For this week’s torah reading, luke’s account of the events surrounding Y’shua reading from isaiah 61 in a nazareth synagogue seems different ways to make money most fitting for our discussion.

“for I consider that the sufferings of this present time different ways to make money are not worth comparing with the glory that is going different ways to make money to be revealed to us. For the creation eagerly waits with anticipation for god’s sons to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to futility (frustration)—not willingly, but because of him who subjected it—in the hope that the creation itself will also be different ways to make money set free from the bondage of corruption into the glorious different ways to make money freedom of god’s children” (rom. 8:18-21; CSB).

“if you continue in my word, then you are my disciples indeed. You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free. Then some of the prushim retored, ‘we are avraham’s seed! We were never in bondage to any man, so how can you say, ‘you shall be set free?’’ Y’shua answered them, ‘truth, I say to you, whoever willfully commits sin is the slave of sin. The servant does not abide in the house forever, but the son abides forever. Therefore, if the son sets you free from sin, you shall indeed be free to abide in the house” (john 8:31-36; rood’s chronology). Freedom from sin

In being freed from the bondage of sin, it becomes our responsibility to not sin. For once we willingly submit ourselves to the tug and different ways to make money pull of sin, we become slaves to sin. Y’shua’s work has alerted us to this danger and has different ways to make money provided us the wherewithal to resist and overcome our sinful different ways to make money nature. It is the gift of the holy spirit that works different ways to make money within us to help us overcome our sinful nature. In living a life absent of sin, we abide with the father in wonderful harmony; freedom; and rest.

2. As yeshua-focused torah-keepers, our focus should not be rote, mechanical obedience to man-made traditions that some claim are based on torah. This does not mean we abandon the fundamentals of torah. Torah serves as our baseline for living in accordance to different ways to make money the way father would have us live as his beloved different ways to make money children. It is father’s house-rules for acceptable godly living.

4. As yeshua-focused torah-keepers, we find rest and peace in father’s and master’s teachings.

We live as people of faith and trust father to different ways to make money provide and guide and deliver us from problems when necessary. Just as was portrayed in our letting the land rest different ways to make money every 7th year, father provided, prospered and protected us in the land.
