Leviticus 25:8ff says:
Count off seven sabbath years—seven times seven years—so that the seven sabbath years amount to a period of forty-nine years. Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land. Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines. For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you…
This year, 2017, is the year of Jubilee. Not only in the spiritual sense, but as a matter of fact. The last year of Jubilee was in 1967, when Jerusalem fell into the hands of the Jewish people after the Six Day War.
It is incredibly significant that I’m now living through a year of Jubilee. But it is also significant that Peter Tsukahira from Israel is coming to Perth to speak on the subject of “Jubilee for You”.
And I am so privileged to be part of the amazing worship team for the conference with musicians and singers from different congregations around Perth:

Here are the details:
I’m just brushing up on all the Messianic songs now. It will be a blast!
