For years, I’d been intrigued with the concept of Jubilee—the large scale debt release, re-start, and inheritance restoration which is scheduled to happen every 49 years (Leviticus 25).
So, it was with great joy that I learned we had entered a physical Jubilee year in September 2015! (Based on the Hebrew calendar when the “beginning” of the year is the fall.)
In our day, the Lord has made it clear that He is restoring our homes (our families) and our lands (our resources). Physical lands and homes can follow!
We believe this by faith. Faith requires response, an action, on our part.
I asked the Lord “what are the action steps we can take to “enter” the Jubilee promise?”
He directed me to a dream in which He had already provided the answer!
Through a dream several years ago, the Lord revealed an ancient key which, when used, will unlock the door for our inheritance (family and resources) to be restored.
The backstory is that my grandmother and I enjoyed a good relationship. She always had time for me and made me feel important. She also gave me a thorough knowledge, and love, of family history. On her birthday that year, I published an article honoring her life story in the newspaper. She loved it—it spoke her language.
Afterwards, I dreamed Grandmother’s mother flew to restore a castle that her grandmother’s family built. She was overwhelmed by the amount of work it would take to restore, and was not able to do this job alone as she had hoped. She did, however, place two valuable items in the castle.
I was thrilled, knowing that the castle represented good spiritual inheritance in the family line. Yet my spirit sensed there was something more, so I asked the Lord.
He replied, “He (she) who honors his parents and grandparents gets the generational blessing.”
Honor is going above and beyond to note and to celebrate the good, the true, and the noble. It lands best when it’s given in a language that the recipient “speaks.”
Please hear this!
Those who are setting aside their own desires to care for aging parents are practicing a high-level lifestyle of honor. As are those who work to keep steady while ministering, the best they can, to parents who don't know the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, this ancient key works at any time. However, we are in a Kairos moment, an opportune time which is a moment that can yield great results if it is acted in, due to the Jubilee year. So, this is an opportune time to use the ancient key to unlock the door in your family line for restoration.
However, a strategy of the Father’s ancient enemy is to create such deep wounds in people during childhood that it is feels too painful to honor the parents and grandparents.
To combat that strategy, first, recognize that is the strategy. Most wounds to children were caused by the unhealed places in parents that they received from the unhealed places in their parents. But, behind that, was a plot to steal life (honor parents, first commandment with a blessing) and inheritance.
Second, use the ancient key! Ask Father for a creative way to honor your parents or grandparents. If they are already deceased, thank the Father for them, and speak of their good points to your children (or out loud). If they lived a toxic life, with not much to honor, you are not left out! Father sent you specifically to your family line with a purpose. He saw something good in your family line. So, honor your parents for giving you life, and for Father’s plan in the family line.
Father, thank You for choosing my family line and sending me to earth at a time in which I could make maximum impact. Thank You for my parents and grandparents. I yield my heart to the forgiveness of the Lord Jesus Christ for their shortcomings. I renounce every judgment I made against them. Likewise, I yield my heart to Your forgiveness for acting in these very same shortcomings toward my children, thus repeating the cycle. Please release me and my family from due consequences, and grant us freedom from criticizing and being criticized by washing our hearts with Your unconditional love.
Father, please download creative ways to honor my parents and grandparents in a way that will speak their language. If they are with You already, I choose to release honor to You for their lives. Thank You for all the times they stood faithfully for Your sake in their generation, and held the line to prepare a place for me and subsequent generations. Show me how I can specifically use this ancient key to unlock the generational inheritance which they fought to secure.
Father, please grant me eyes to see and a heart to understand that when I honor my parents and grandparents, I’m honoring You. Please release to me and my family the generational blessings to flow to us which have been backlogged. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
