Main Text: Leviticus 25:10 10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
The key to the Jubilee was the people responding to it in unity – throughout all the land and unto all the inhabitants (Leviticus 25:10). Disunity, greed, selfishness, etc. will deny as the joy of the Jubilee.
In the Jubilee, we must be united in three ways to possess our possessions. 1. RESPONSE Everybody responded. It is dangerous for some people to refuse to respond the Jubilee. We must think the same way, speak the same words, feel the same way and sing the same songs. The walls of resistance collapse only when we respond together at once (Joshua 6:5). 2. RESPONSIBILITY We must act decisively together at once. There must be no delayed execution of actions (Joshua 6:5). People with undecided minds must tune their minds to the broader vision. 3. RESTORATION In the Jubilee, every man returned to his possession and his family. Their properties were restored to them. It is possible for everybody in a family, church or society to have their blessings restored to them (1 Samuel 30:22-25).
The early Church was not only united in word and in Spirit but also in possession – none of them lacked anything (Acts 4:32-35). We must be united to enter into our Jubilee.
Prayer: Pray for unity in your local church and in the Body of Christ.

THE WORD SIROCCO Saturday, May 16, 2020 Month Theme: The Sons of Oil Topic: The Two Witnesses Scripture Reading: Revelation 11:1-13 Main Text: Revelation 11:3 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. During the great tribulation, the two witnesses of the Book of Revelation will operate together, thereby making it difficult for their enemies to destroy them. The Book of Revelation does not mention the names of the two witnesses. I agree with the notion that these two witnesses are Elijah and Moses but I won’t engage in a debate with anyone who believes otherwise. The identities of the two witnesses are not as important as the fact that they operated together. Although they were individually anointed, they operated together. When we align our anointings with other people’s, we become more anointed to execute our purposes. The two witnesses will be given power to prophesy for one thousand,
THE WORD SIROCCO Sunday, May 17, 2020 Month Theme: The Sons of Oil Topic: Reason for Two - Two for Work Scripture Reading: Genesis 2:15-25 Main Text: Zechariah 4:14 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth. The Bible presents TWO sons of oil, NOT ONE (Zechariah 4:11-14). The Hebrew word for “two” in the above scripture reference is shenayim meaning two, second, double, couple and twofold. The word shenayim means more than the number two – it speaks about the union of two ie double, couple, twofold. Agreement is implied. The two sons of oil in Zechariah 4:14 operated together. God designed human beings to operate in twos for good reasons, one of which is for work. God created Adam to “dress and keep” the Garden of Eden and gave him Eve as a “help meet” partly for that purpose (Genesis 2:15). The word "alone" is the Hebrew word lèbaddō. It is comparable with a castle with high walls which prevent someone from seeing the nice bu
