WHEN IS THE “ACCEPTABLE YEAR?
THE YEAR OF JUBILEE IS THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR.
God established a law that every 7 years there’d be a JUBILEE year.
The earth was given REST.
No planting & no crops. And anyone who was a slave was SET FREE!
The priest rode through the land & sounded the trumpet.
Every slave was FREE to go back to his loved ones & he didn’t have to pay anything.
What a beautiful type of those
who’ve SOLD THEMSELVES to sin.
They’ve become SLAVES
to the devil.
You can’t FREE yourself.
No matter how much they try to UNITE PEOPLE, it takes God!
Jesus Christ ALONE can make you free!
AS LONG AS IT’S JUST MAN,
IT WILL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING!

W M B ~ Now, Jesus was prophesied, by Isaiah, “to preach THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR.”
That’s what we want to deal on, tonight, now. Now, “THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR,” was this, that, in during the time, between so many years. Acceptable year is the year called, in the Old Writings, “THE YEAR OF JUBILEE.”
It come every…I believe it was either…Every seven years was a jubilee year.
And EVERY SEVEN YEARS they let the ground rest. They growed NO FRUIT on it, or no…planted NO CROPS. They let their crops, in the field, REST, every seven years; and at that time was a JUBILEE.
And every time that there was a slave that had been sold, or a Hebrew, a man had sold his children for slavery…
Now, that sounds like a horrible thing, but I stood a few nights ago and watched the same thing take place.
When, men would bring their daughters, young women, put them up in the slave market, and strip them down, and sell them there for slaves.
One of the fellows that was in, not in our party, but had joined up with us there, bought a lovely young lady, for the sum of thirty-five dollars, and got a—a writing in law, just like you get a title to a car.
Some sold for ten dollars. Some was just give away. And how that, in any place where the Name of Jesus Christ isn’t respect, human being and women become no more than animals.
And HOW WE OUGHT TO PRAISE GOD FOR THE COUNTRY THAT WE LIVE IN, for the morals and things.
IT’S A SHAME HOW WE TREAT THE THINGS THAT WE DO HAVE, THE FREEDOMS OF GOD.
Now, they would sell a slave. Then this—this girl here, now, she can go out and be a wife, or she can be a handmaid.
They sell her; look at her teeth, see how strong she is, whether she can work or not, or if she’s a virgin or not, and so forth.
And you can buy them, get as many as you want, many as you can take care of, many as you can pay for.
And, now, the same thing was in the days of the Lord, when they took a slave and sold it.
Then, every seven years there was a jubilee year come by. Now, this was a great time, and it has a great significance to the people of today. Great time!
Now, the slaves would be in the field, or wherever they was, at work, and then maybe bent down under the load of the taskmaster, the owner.
And he was full lord and master over them, because he had a legal paper that showed that this slave belonged to him. He would treat it like a horse, or whatever he wanted to. It was his slave.
But, then, every seven years, it was the law of God, that there was a jubilee year.
And when this jubilee year come by, then the priest rode the land, SOUNDING THE TRUMPET, and every slave that had been bought with a price, and become a servant, was given the privilege to be made free, go back home again, back to his loved one.
He was redeemed back, by grace. He didn’t have to pay anything. His loved ones didn’t have to pay anything. IT WAS AN ACT OF GOD. What a BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATION!
Today, that men and women, in our country and everywhere else, has SOLD THEIRSELF OUT TO SIN, drinking, gambling, carousing, doing things that they ought not to do, and become SLAVES TO THE DEVIL. Some…
I met a young lady, here not long ago. She said, “Brother Branham, I’d give anything if I could only break this band of whiskey.”
She said, “I started when I was a little girl, went with a boy that drank. We started mixing drinks, and I become a perfect slave to it. If I don’t have it,” she says, “I just go wild. IF I COULD ONLY GET RID OF THIS!”
I said, “You can’t do it yourself, but I know Someone Who can break it for you. The Lord JESUS CHRIST HAS COME TO MAKE YOU FREE.”
Now, if you’ll notice, in symbol, THAT JUBILEE YEAR REPEATS now again.
Every so often there is a revival strikes the land; just, the great Welsh revival, it closed not long ago.
The people…we might go and have Billy Grahams and Oral Robertses all over the land, everywhere.
And no matter how much we try, how great we try to ORGANIZE our people TOGETHER, and BAND THEM, IT TAKES GOD to bring a revival. No matter…
We’re trying to have a Christian Business Men’s organization. That’s good. Now they’re trying to have a—a interdenominational ministers’ association. That’s all good.
But, brother, AS LONG AS IT’S JUST MAN, IT’LL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING. But it takes the SPIRIT OF GOD to get among the people!
