I’d like to share an article that I wrote last year in anticipation of the APEC conference that was held in Hawaii. This relates to our ongoing research into the nature and identity of the Queen of Babylon. Yesterday here in Hawaii we celebrated our statehood day. This occurred on August 21, 1959, and is celebrated annually every third Friday in August. We were the fiftieth state to join the union. “Fifty” is the number of Jubilee. In the Old Testament this was the year of liberty and debt relief and the “year of the Lord’s favor” referred to by Jesus in Luke 4:18-19,
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
This is the revolutionary motto that I now refer to as the “Jesus Manifesto.” It is the battle-cry of the global insurrection that Jesus began against the “powers of this world.” This great planetary INSURRECTION was subsequently confirmed by Jesus’ RESURRECTION, and was then empowered and released through the outpouring of the Holy Ghost at Pentecost, which literally means “fiftieth day.”
We, the Church of Jesus Christ, are the authentic carriers of FREEDOM in the world today, yet this world is also inundated with many concepts of freedom that are carnal and spurious. Much of these false promises of freedom are intertwined with the political agenda known as “free market globalization.”
I am convinced that the call to “Come out of her, my people!” found in Revelation 18:4 will involve the Church demonstrating the distinction between the heavenly and the carnal definitions of FREEDOM. As we come out of Babylon the true people of God will embrace our primary task of declaring and releasing Heaven’s Jubilee.
