STREAMS OF WORSHIP & WEALTH FLOWING OUT OF 5776
As we were approaching last year’s day of atonement, the Lord began to speak to me about worshipping and honoring the Lord with finances. The Lord revealed that He was releasing financial glory for the church to offer the greatest offering of worship in wealth which we have ever offered. There are many forms of worship, many of which are performed unto the Lord through the ways we live our lives intentionally unto him, in obedience out of love for Jesus. This goes up as a beautiful offering of praise and worship unto the Lord, because now we are the temples. The altar is our life, the sacrifice made willingly with our hearts, offered up according to his grace, by the strength of his faith, propelling us into kingdom blessing in this life! Wealth is one of our offerings of worship unto the Lord.
This word began to come to me as we were ending the Jubilee of Jubilees in the year 5776 on the jewish calendar last year. Pertaining to this revelation of worship and finance, the Lord spoke to me about the origins of Jubilee, even found in the son of Lamech named “Jubal”, a close descendant to Enoch, talked about in (Gen.4).
19 “Then Lamech took for himself two wives: the name of one was Adah, and the name of the second was Zillah.
20 And Adah bore Jabal. He was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock.
21 His brother’s name was was Jubal. He was the father of all those who play the harp and the flute.”
Jubal shares a similar root word meaning to his brother’s name “Jabal”, which means “to conduct”. One was the first conductor of real estate and commerce represented in tents and livestock. The other was the first conductor of worship and music. Here you see that worship and wealth are in the same family, that as you conduct your resources you can also seamlessly conduct your honor and worship unto the Lord. As it is written in (Prov.3:9), “Honor (glorify, worship) the Lord with your substance (possessions, material wealth), and with the first fruits of your increase.” It is of kingdom order to conduct wealth and worship together as you continually offer your life to the Lord, a living sacrifice, which is holy and acceptable to him (Rom.12:1).
Jubal’s full name meaning is “stream”. As John the Revelator revealed in (Rev.22:1) there is a river proceeding from the throne of God always. Flowing rivers and streams reveal the nature of the kingdom, constantly moving with life and power. Worship is constantly streaming from heaven, as well as from the earth, as people continually call upon the name of the Lord. Prayer is constantly flowing. Wealth, finance, and creative value are constantly flowing as well. These streams are beginning to flow together in the life of the church at an accelerated rate, to strengthen us in God’s glory for the new day! This current Jubilee of Jubilees momentum that we’re in is accelerating this work of glory in the earth! Many have heard of the worship and prayer movement that’s in the earth, but few have put as much value on the stream of worship which has been flowing from the prosperity movement over the past few decades. But it’s all one in the same movement. It’s a move of strength and glory which has come from God!
Most scholars which I’ve read from, speaking about the origins of the word “jubilee” found in the bible, concur that the root word is most likely from this biblical character named Jubal (1). Jubilee is literally translated as “ram’s horn” or the shofar in jewish culture. As the sounds of worship are conducted before the throne, the freedom, liberty, and life of the Spirit come streaming from God. The life of worship and jubilation before God is a life of freedom, blessing, deliverance from debt, rest, and peace in God! The sound of a special Jubilee began to be released in the earth in 2016! God is announcing a new day of freedom, liberty, and life for all!
JUBILEE OF JUBILEES, SIGNS IN THE POLITICAL MOUNTAIN
Last year, when we were coming into 2016, as we were observing the promises of God in the midst of the tightening U.S. election, we were observing in the midst of the jewish year 5776. 5776 was significant because it was the 70th Jubilee cycle since Joshua and Caleb crossed over into the promised land to begin to possess their inheritance. It was also the 40th Jubilee since Jesus came and received the inheritance on behalf of the church! Forty and seventy are both biblical numbers representing a generation (2).
William Branham received his angelic commissioning on May 7th 1946 (the Jewish year of 5706) which launched the voice of healing movement through which the ministries of Billy Graham, Oral Roberts, T.L. Osborn, Kenneth Hagin, and many other world shakers were released. Similar to 5706, 5776 was a year in which a massive gate was opened to the church and the nations for a new move of God’s glory!
Just after Branham’s commissioning, the following month in June of 1946, Donald Trump was born. Bill Clinton and George W. Bush followed him being born in the months of July & August of 1946, and then in September of 1946 the jewish year turned to 5707. All three of these U.S. presidents turned 70 in the jewish year of 5776 (2016), the Jubilee of Jubilees. Trump will be 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old on his first full day in office in the jewish year of 5777.
Seven is a number of completeness and biblical perfection. There is definately a completeness to a season and a level of perfected beauty in God’s creative will and purpose that is coming forth in the earth. God gave the time cycles based off of the sun, the moon, and the stars not just for days and years, but for “signs and seasons” (Gen.1:14). These time cycles are definitely speaking of a shift in the seasons, and it’s a good shift that’s occurring, which I believe speaks of an alignment of nations for the return of Christ, for the tangible advance of his kingdom!
There is definately a changing of the guard, a passing from one generation to another. With this some new generals from the emerging generation are being revealed. Some from the older generation are going home to be with the Lord, and some are coming to their full maturity, represented in this number 70. Crossing over for the children of Israel meant that some had already gone home who were a part of that wilderness generation. But it meant for others, like Joshua and Caleb, a maturity in leadership. It meant leading a whole nation into the inheritance of God! Our time now is being marked by this word: IT IS TIME FOR THE CHURCH TO ENTER INTO THE FULLNESS OF THEIR INHERITANCE IN CHRIST, EVEN IN THE NATIONS!
I’m especially intrigued by the amount of prophetic signs surrounding political leadership at this time. I don’t remember there ever being such signs and wonders around this company of people. But it is indeed happening, and Jesus will receive his full reward as King in the earth, even in the highest places of the political mountain! To me this is a sign that Christ, even through his body which is the fullness of him in the earth, is beginning to fully apprehend the mantle of Christ in the earth, which goes beyond the priestly robes. The fullness of Christ’s mantle restores the kingly oil, and restores the mandate of Adam when God told him to “take dominion” (Gen.2:28). The church will exercise more influence politically in the new day, and where previous generations could not get past their religious hangups to bring the kingdom, we will go beyond their exploits influencing the political mountain with the grace and glory of Christ! Our influence in the political mountain will come from a purer manifestation of Christ’s kingship, released through lovers who are in union with him. They will bring heaven’s political policy, heaven’s economic ideals, and heaven’s justice for the new day. This is what I perceive when I see the signs coming from the political mountain in this hour.
DOUBLE PORTION INHERITANCE COMING FORTH
When Abram purchased his cave for burial in (Gen.23) the name of the cave was “Machpelah” which means “double portion” in Hebrew. There is a double portion blessing over the passing from one generation to another, and we’re in the midst of that passing right now, as we come into 2017 and continue on into this most interesting jewish new year 5777. For those who understand the prophetic nature of God and how this is illustrated over and over again through symbology and numerology in the bible, you know that for a year to have three 7’s in it is significant. We came out of the 70th jubilee cycle since the children of Israel took their inheritance, and Jubilee is the 7th cycle of 7 sabbath rests in the land. When the Jubilee horn was blown (the trump) they began to enjoy the blessings and benefits which came with Jubilee detailed in Leviticus 25. Yes there’s freedom, liberty, safety, righteousness, and justice, all included in the proclamation of Jubilee. But the most mentioned blessing pertaining to Jubilee was financial blessing, as the Lord spoke over and over again about restoring land, real estate, lost possessions, releasing those who had been sold into slavery, even setting the markets according to the Jubilee cycle (Lev.25:15-16).
I believe this is why God has been speaking so much about financial glory, and why the momentum of this Jubilee of Jubilees which we’re in, is so important. The principal gate of finance must be possessed through the kingly oil of the church in order for us to be strengthened to fully complete our mandate and commission in the earth. Heaven’s projects of glory in the earth will be strengthened in the stream of finance, why the enemies plans will be choked off and weakened! I believe Donald Trump is a sign of the church beginning to possess this gate. Trump is not just a political giant, but he is a financial giant as well. His financial anointing made way for his kingly anointing. The church’s increase in the financial anointing is making way for her kingly anointing in the earth!
What would happen if God took the revealed biblical blessing of Jubilee, which is available through the inheritance of Christ for the nations, and released the manifestation of it in the nations by a move of great grace and greater glory! You would see not only the greatest move of liberty, freedom, safety, justice, and righteousness; you would see the greatest move of financial glory and restoration for the nations! We’ve been praying it, “Let your kingdom come, let your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt.6:10). What does it look like for that promise to come, as God says to the church like He said to Joshua 70 Jubilee cycles ago, “Go in and possess your inheritance”; like He said to our Lord 40 Jubilee cycles ago, “Go in and possess their inheritance for them”?!! I think we’re going to see it in 2017!
