2015 the Year of Acceleration, Redemption, Rest & Grace

It is amazing that this year is a season of the Shemitah, Jubilee, and Blood Moons simultaneously!  It's an exciting season prophetically and all eyes are on it with great expectation and anticipation for what God is saying and doing in the lives of His people, concerning the land of Israel, the Jewish people and the world at large. 2015 will be a year in which you will witness the fulfillment of God's Word and prophetic timetable at an accelerated pace as He watches over His Word to perform it. So, get ready because the stage has already been set, and I believe that you're going to be a witness of Bible prophecy being fulfilled in human history.

2014 was a very difficult and challenging year for many of God's people, and the battle was very intense and hard to endure. But, in spite of everything the adversary did to try and discourage God's servants and people from maintaining their faith in God's Word, he failed and a brand new season of great expectancy has emerged.

The number 20 signifies "Redemption" and "Anticipation".  The number 14 signifies "Double Perfection", and the number 15 signifies "Rest" and "Triple Grace" (3x5=15 or 5 three times).  Hence, this is a year of anticipation and expectation of the redemption plan and promises of God coming to pass in the lives of Believers. It is also a time when God shall bless His people to enter into the corridors of His Divine grace as He magnifies Himself before you.  2014 was a season in which God's people were pressed, proved, tried and tested. It was a season where God tested His people under pressure, and the adversary thought he had placed such a stronghold upon the lives of God's servants, pastors, leaders and even God's people, that could not be broken.  But, God gave you enough grace to overcome the wicked one by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, and enter into a brand new season with a greater magnitude of faith in God than you had before.  

It is important to note that the word Shemitah refers to a release, fall, collapse or shaking. On Mt. Sinai, God gave his law to Israel that every 7th year would be a Sabbath year. It would be a year of rest or the Shemitah. There would be no sowing, no reaping of the land, and on the last day of the Shemitah called Elul 29, it would be a day on the biblical calendar where all debts would be wiped away, a time when the financial accounts of the nation are wiped clean.  Interestingly, we are living at a time and period when there is great volatility within the economy and banking systems around the world. As you see gas prices dropping, and many people do not understand what is actually occurring and taking place in the financial markets. A major collapse is looming on the horizon. Top experts and financial analysts all over the world are predicting a major economic disaster in 2015, one of financial collapses, economic chaos just as we saw occur in 2001 and 2008 when the financial bubble came to an end and burst. However, as Believers our hope is in the Lord.  When what the world would know to be catastrophic seasons approach, it shall be a season of power and blessings for the people of God!! While the world systems and governments are shaking and being weighed in the balances, the Church and bride of Christ is in it's finest hour to shine for the Kingdom of our God!! According to Isaiah 60, we shall see the glory of the Lord rise upon us!!!  God is going to be magnified and glorified in the lives of His people in such a fashion where your enemies shall fall, traps and plans to destroy you will collapse and fail, and the adversary will tremble and flee as God has determined and ordered your release from all shackles, chains and bondage of the enemy in Jesus Mighty Name!!!  

Last year, an anointed psalmist and gospel recording artist released a song entitled "Break Every Chain," and I believe strongly that it heaven sent as a declaration of Divine release, deliverance and freedom for God's people, that the enemy could not bind them any longer. This is the hour and time to rejoice and praise the Lord, because your "redemption draweth nigh."  (Luke 21:28)

This is also the year of Jubilee!!! According to Leviticus 25, it is a Sabbath year of "rest", and encompasses "Shemitah."  Jubilee pertains to and signifies a season of rest, and God has set up this season on behalf of His people to give you peace, and deliver you from all that oppresses you.  In the 49th year, there were 7 sabbatical years (v. 3-4), then another jubilee, making eight such years every 50 years. The 7th sabbatical year being the 49th year of the period, and the 8th or jubilee being the 50th made it a 24 month Sabbath for the people to enjoy rest, and the land to lie untended. Please note that the number 7 signifies "Perfection", and the number 8 signifies "New Beginnings."  According to Hebrews chapter 4:3-4, God speaking through his servant said these words: 

"For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. 4 For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works."  

It is a year of rest, increase, release from bondage, debts and from oppression.  In other words, God has watched over you, even during the season and time when you were struggling, in the season when your enemies tried to destroy you, when the adversary desired to take you captive and discourage your testimony in God. But God has another plan for you, and it's His plan that shall prevail over your life, not the enemy!  God has already spoken by His word and said that every thing that has risen up to destroy you shall collapse and fall. The devil and all of his cohorts have no choice but to release you, let go and flee in Jesus Mighty Name!!!  "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee, in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord." (Isaiah 54:17, KJV)

Finally, we are still within the times and seasons of the "2014 - 2015 Blood Moons Tetrad." I encourage you to refer to the blog that I wrote regarding the subject last year to read and glean more insight on the subject.  The Bible clearly says, "Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He will reveal His secrets unto His servants the prophets."  (Amos 3:7, KJV) God is speaking loud and clear, as He is purifying and perfecting that which concerns the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are living in the last days, and I believe that the appearing of our Lord and King is sooner than when we first believed. The Bible speaks pertaining to an end-time outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the signs that shall occur in the heavenly bodies, stars, sun and moon before the return of Christ. We are actually living in the very fulfillment of what the Bible says right now, and it's amazing to watch and see what God does.

Joel 2:1-2, and verses 30-31 reads, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

In essence, the blood moons tetrad represents a time and season of great signs and wonders in the sun and moon. It pertains to a set of four consecutive lunar eclipses of the moon that will occur on the exact dates of four Jewish holidays (Passover and the Feast of Tabernacles), which will happen in both 2014 and 2015. A blood moon is a complete and total eclipse of the moon that causes it to appear bloody red.  It is an indication of the fulfillment and manifestation of Bible prophecy. Even N.A.S.A, the National Aeronautical and Space Administration has done massive research on the 4 Blood Moons Tetrad. So, it's certainly not something that "those Bible thumpers" just came up with!  It's a significant move of God in the earth realm that cannot be ignored or passed off as hearsay or something frivolous that is without merit. So, you have all of these enormous signs taking place in the same period of time which has not occurred ever before in this manner and will never occur again in this century. Since the time of Christ, there have only been four blood moons just seven times. None of the other blood moons have happened simultaneously during a year of Shemitah and Jubilee, which signifies triple grace, rest, redemption, as well as a great transfer of wealth and release from debt, but a great time of punishment or sword for the unrighteous. According to the Jewish Talmud Sukkah 29a, "when the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel. If its face is red as blood, it is a sign that the sword is coming to the world." The last of the four blood moons are set to occur this year on April 4, 2015 with the observation of the Feast of Passover, and on September 24, 2015 during the Feast of Tabernacles. In the middle of these two blood moons a partial eclipse of the sun will occur on September 13, 2015, in which Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets is observed. Please note that these feasts were to be observed throughout all generations according the Book of Exodus 12:14; Leviticus 23:2-44; Luke 2:42; John 5:1; Matthew 26:17,29; Acts 18:21). So, although we, as Believers have not been exposed to or observe the feasts as the Jews have observed them over the centuries, it will be extremely interesting to watch prayerfully and see what takes place over the course of this year.  In fact, researchers, scientist, and Bible theologians all agree on one thing for sure, and it is that what we are seeing happen will never happen again in history, and that's something to get excited about, because Bible prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes!!!

God wants for His people as Believers to be alert about what is going to take place in the earth. There are certain things which God has reserved to happen and occur in the last days that have never happened before, and will never happen again thereafter. These are significant "kairos" moments in time where governments, systems, economies, and nations will enter into great tribulation, distress, trouble and war. But, the Church will not need fear during the times of distress and trouble that shall come upon the world systems, because the Lord has already made a way of escape for the righteous, and He is coming back for a glorious Church that is looking unto His appearing. The Bible states the following in the Book of Joel, verse 11, then in verses 16-19, & 23 -32: 

"And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18 Then will the Lord be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19 Yea, the Lord will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lordyour God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.
32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

Based on what the Scriptures say, I believe there will be a final major push for souls to be saved and redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ before He returns.  I believe that we are going to witness the revelation of God's Word in real time, and people will begin to say that we're living in the Bible days because of the magnitude and rate in which things will unfold. Even skeptics both in and outside the Church will have to admit to the fact that undeniably something of a serious nature and immense proportions is taking place!  Matthew chapter 24 brings great light to the things we will see come to pass, while Luke 21:28 says, "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."

Let me encourage you to expect and anticipate great things to happen for you in this season, during 2015. Give yourselves to much prayer, fasting, and study of God's Word. Elevate and increase your praise and worship in the season as you cultivate your relationship with the Lord and commune in His presence. Your continued faithfulness, obedience, and expectation are the keys to receiving the manifestation and having a testimony of what the Lord has done for you. Grace and peace be unto you in the mighty name of our Lord, Savior and soon coming King, Jesus Christ!!!

Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

An outstanding review of both natural & supernatural timing & occurrences. Definitely a call to watch & pray. To be alert & prepared to be used as an instrument of harvest, healing & deliverance. Truly as the Good Master said "Let him who has an ear to hear hear...& be not only hearers of the Word but doers."

There is a great deal of biblical based facts and relative accounts, as it pertains to God's people in this hour, mentioned in this excellent blog. A great deal of warfare occurred in, 2014. This warfare and period of great trials for many of us was unlike anything I had personally seen or experienced,but something happened as we transitioned into 2015. The people of God started to get revelation as to why the attack was so intense, it was because we were getting ready to transition into a time of intense peace, grace, completion, and perfection. When God created us the plans and purpose for our lives were also included, like the operation instructions included in the package of a device. I truly believe that God is getting ready to unfold those instructions and read them out loud so that world may know who we are and what we were created for. The task at hand is for us to; to operate our faith, be obedient, remain in expectation, receive the manifestation, and release our testimony.

I must admit 2014 was a very trying year, but I thank God that he allowed us to make it through. Nothing prepares you better for destiny,than trials and tribulations. I heard a great man of God say Pressure proves a man, or a woman. I totally agree with todays blog that there are some great and marvalous things on the horizion for the righteous, for those who held on and didn't give up or in, despite what the devil throw against us. When God is for us, no Devil in Hell can stop us. We are Blessed, Properous, Anointed and Appointed by God. And 2015 will tell the story of, Oh How Good It Is To Trust In Jesus!!!

This month's blog written by Dr. Bethtina Williams is particularly enlightening because it reveals to us much of God's prophetic timetable. It is quite interesting that we have simultaneous blood moons during this season. These are occurrences which only happen during certain time spans and we are alive to see them. Another interesting fact is that this is the year of Jubilee when people are released from debt. Our expectancy levels should be so high because we are living during a very powerful season of grace. This year is a season of the Shemitah, Jubilee, and Blood Moons simultaneously which in itself is absolutely amazing yet that's not all! Biblical Numerology points this year out as a year of grace, the year 2015 has five fives in it. There are 4 fives in 20 and there are three 5 in 15 signifying the fact that 2015 is a year that covered by the favor from beginning to end. The church has exited a year of testing and entered a year of grace. We should be excited to no end! God is about to accelerate blessings in the lives of His people. We will move forward and see the blessings of God accelerate in our lives, and we will see the power of God revealed!

Apostle Dr. Stanley, it is always an honor read your comments on our monthly blog. Thank you for elaborating on the significance of this season of God's grace in which we can expect accelerated manifestation of His promises. It's great to know that the entire year has already been covered by God's grace!!

This blog speaks loudly to the end-time manifestation of God’s love, grace, mercy, and kindnesses released upon His righteous people. It also speaks to the judgment will God handed out to them who practice evil in His sight. I believe God sent this message out to warn and align his people. God’s very nature is one that desire that no man shall be lost, but all shall come into the knowledge of the truth. The things that are mention in this blog must come to past, because if you can find it in His word then that settles it. God is not a man He cannot lie. So I am excited because God is about to flip the script on our adversary the devil, and bring his people into a time of jubilee: rest, wealth, and debt release. Apostle may God continue to use your prophetic voice to sound the alarm to His people.
