KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 4:14 ” And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.”
The Lord was angry with Moses for putting various impediments through many excuses. Why was God angry with him? Because he was abstracting his deliverance plans for His people.
The Lord showed by this action that, He is the one who is concerned about the salvation, healing and deliverance of every captive. God does not want anybody bound or under Satan’s control. God does not want you sick and helpless because of the works of the devil in your life. As he expressed the dislike for Moses unbelief and fears God is moved towards anybody lost in sin, and hurting especially in this ACCEPTABLE YEAR. In Luke 4:19, the Lord Jesus on announcing His mission statement as He read the prophecy of Isaiah said “He has come to preach the acceptable year.” The acceptable year is also called the year of Jubilee. The year of Jubilee is the fiftieth year after they went to the promised land. Leviticus 25:10″ And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.”
In the year of Jubilee, every slave must be set free. Every debtor must be relieved off the debt. It is a time of total liberty. The Lord Jesus in that great proclamation in Luke 4:18-19 said He had come to proclaim the acceptable year. What is the acceptable year in His time? The acceptable year began the moment he died and resurrected. From the moment of his resurrection till His return everyone in bondage to the devil is to be freed because He has made payments for everyone’s release. It is not just one physical year, but the whole period spanning his resurrection till he comes back for the church. No one must continue to be under Satan’s tribute. He defeated the devil through His death. It is the acceptable year for everybody. Today you can be free from whatever holds you in captivity.
We the children of God must go about telling men that we are in the year of Jubilee or the acceptable year and no one must continue to be under Satan or demonic rule. He or she can be freed.
God gets angry with us when we give Him various excuses why we can’t go. He has finished everything in Jesus: (John 19:30). Just go in His name. We are in a better time than Moses time. Moses was going to be used to set the people free, but we are supposed to go and tell the people that Jesus has already set them free and must turn to Him, to realize their deliverance and salvation.
Oh God, may your church be enlightened about the great power and glory already deposited in us, as we go about the Lord’s commission. Help the church to forsake traditional believes to take our place as saviours”. (Obadiah 1:21)
Obadiah 1:21 ” And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S.”
John 19:30 ” When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost”.
