Hear the heart behind the week of worship taking place from 14th-18th June
Exodus 12:25 ‘When you enter the land which the Lord will give you, as He has promised’
We are entering a significant time in the life of Jubilee Church. Many years of praying and searching have led us to this moment in time. The Lord has provided a property that fits our calling as the ‘ekklesia of God’, and we are poised on the banks of the River Jordan.
The picture of God’s people temporarily ‘tabernacling’ in a tent while they journeyed through the desert on the way to Canaan has been referenced several times in the past 12 months. The Children of Israel were clinging to the promises of God made to Abraham 500 years previously. Forty years wandering in the desert may have seemed wasted time to the Hebrews but God used the opportunity to teach, train, equip and prepare His people for what they would face in the land of Canaan.
Over the next few months, we will look at the theme of ‘Enter the Promised Land’, considering how we need to prepare our hearts and arrange our lives in readiness for serving the King of Kings.
What we do in the property is of major importance but, like the Hebrews, we must not lose sight of the most fundamental lesson missed by most of Israel: we are to know who we are and whose we are. How do we prepare ourselves? Spending time with Jesus daily, praying and reading His word. We confess Jesus is Lord daily, asking Him to come into our lives and move our furniture around to suit His purposes. We offer up all we possess – skills and gifts, finance, possessions and time – available on a daily basis to see His Kingdom come.
We are entering a significant time – come and join us on the journey.
Numbers 13:30 “Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses and said, “We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.”
