I have been excited about this season of 24/7 prayer at Crossroads ever since I first heard that we were doing it, and since it has been underway I have been involved helping out with the blog and leading open worship on Saturday nights. I want to share a little of what God has been doing in my heart during this season.

As I have been contemplating Isaiah 61 and dwelling in the words of this passage, I realized one simple fact about God’s Jubilee… it WILL happen. Take a close look at the language that is used.

In verses 1-3, Isaiah is sent to proclaim what God will do.

In verses 4 – 7 the word “Shall” is used 10 times (once per line)

In verses 8 – 9 the word “Shall” is used 2 more times and the phrase “I Will” is used 2 times.

And lastly in verses 10b – 11 God declares:

“As a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God WILL cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.”

There are no conditional phrases in this whole chapter. The certainty of this Jubilee is apparent in the words of Isaiah; God’s Jubilee Will happen regardless of anything or anyone else.

As I was reading this chapter I realized that God doesn’t need me in order to accomplish His Jubilee, yet I also realized that He will use me if I let Him.

It’s like a wave… sweeping across all generations and all nations

I have a choice to make. I’m either riding the wave of God’s Jubilee or I will be buried by it, but one thing is for sure, it can’t be stopped.
