Week 8 Day 6
The Jubilee Year was a year of liberty--
freedom from debts
freedom from servitude
The Jubilee Year was holy--
You have to trust God to provide!
The Jubilee Year indicates that land belongs to God--
God gave land for the good of all
to be allotted equally
with no hoarding
When the Israelites entered Canaan
each of the twelve families, or tribes
received an allotment of land
The land was a gift from God for their use
therefore in future years that land
could never be permanently bought or sold
every 50 years was the Jubilee Year
when all land reverted back to the original family.
YOU GOTTA TRUST ME
Don't sow crops on the Sabbath or in Jubilee years.
2"When you come into the land which I give you, then theland shall keep a sabbath to the Lord. 3Six years you shall sowyour field, prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit; 4but theseventh year shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land.Neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. 6What growsof its own accord you shall not reap, nor gather the grapes ofyour untended vine, for it is a year of rest for the land. 8"You shall count seven sabbaths of years. 9Then on thetenth day of the seventh month, on the Day of Atonement youshall sound the trumpet throughout all the land. 10Consecratethe fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land toall its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you: and each of youshall return to his possession, and each of you shall return tohis family. 11You shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes. 12For it is the Jubilee,it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field. 13"In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to hispossession. 14 If you sell anything or buy from your neighbor,you shall not oppress one another. 15According to the numberof years after the Jubilee you shall buy from your neighbor;according to the number of years of crops he shall sell to you.16 Increase its price, or diminish its price; according to the number of the years of the crops. 17Therefore, you shall notoppress one another, but fear your God; for I am the Lordyour God. 18"Observe My statutes and keep My judgments, andperform them; and you will dwell in the land in safety.19Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill.20 If you say, 'What shall we eat in the seventh year, sincewe shall not sow nor gather in our produce?' 21Then I willcommand My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it willbring forth produce enough for three years. 23"The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land isMine; and you are strangers and sojourners with Me. 24 In all the land you shall grant redemption of the land. 39 If one of your brethren becomes poor, and sells himself to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a slave. 40As a hired servant and sojourner he shall serve you until the Year of Jubilee. 41Then he shall depart from you--he and his children with him--ands hall return to his own family, to the possession of his fathers."
