Genesis 12:7 Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.
We have been looking at the spectacular entrance by the children of Israel into the Promised land to take up their inheritance promised to them by the Lord to Abram at Shechem.
The battle of Jericho reflects the ultimate PHYSICAL JUBILEE Jubilee – the return of the slaves to their families and the return of the land to its rightful owners.
That’s why there was the LONG BLAST of the JUBILEE TRUMPETS and a GREAT SHOUT.
Have a look in the Hebrew
Joshua 6:5 5 It shall come to pass, when they make a LONG BLAST WITH THE JUBILEE HORN, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall SHOUT WITH A GREAT SHOUT; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.”

Let’s look now at the ultimate SPIRITUAL JUBILEE, when those who have become the ‘sons of Abraham’ by faith in Jesus the Messiah inherit the promises at the end of the age – Mount Zion, and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and an innumerable company of angels. (Hebrews 12:22)
Jesus is speaking to His disciples. Watch for the jubilee trumpets and the great shout.
Matthew 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And He will send HIS ANGELS WITH THE SOUND OF A TRUMPET, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST TRUMPET. For THE TRUMPET WILL SOUND, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven WITH A SHOUT, with the VOICE OF AN ARCHANGEL , and with the TRUMPET OF GOD. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Hebrews 12:18 For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and tempest,
19 and the SOUND OF A TRUMPET AND THE VOICE OF WORDS, so that those who heard it begged that the word should not be spoken to them anymore.
20 (For they could not endure what was commanded: “And if so much as a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow.”
21 And so terrifying was the sight that Moses said, “I am exceedingly afraid and trembling.”)
22 But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
23 to the general assembly and church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven, to God the Judge of all, to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Revelation 11:15 Then the SEVENTH ANGEL SOUNDED (7th trumpet): And there were LOUD VOICES in heaven, saying, “The KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD HAVE BECOME THE KINGDOMS OF OUR LORD AND OF HIS MESSIAH, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
19 Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.
Revelation 19:6 And I heard, as it were, the VOICE OF A GREAT MULTITUDE, AS THE SOUND OF MANY WATERS and AS THE SOUND OF MIGHTY THUNDERINGS, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
7 Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
The ultimate jubilee is announced by the heavenly jubilee trumpet and a great shout.
BIMSOK BA’QEREN HA YOVEL – the long blast of the Yovel horn.
Followed by TERUAH GA’DOWLAH – the great shout!
Are you ready? Are you watching? Is everything in order?
This time is approaching very quickly.
