Nashville Jubilee 2000 Many Cried To The Lord In Lostness

The jubilee was, and remained, a religious affair, for the atonement of sin. Nashville Jubilee 2000 speaks of "jubilate." Everyone likes to get away from the job God gave us and have some fun. Second, Jubilee speaks of liberation and we all just wish our oppressors would go away. Don't blame us for seeking Christ out in the desert. but He isn't there. He is, with His kingdom, in the human heart where change agents dare not go. A short page on the web declares that "Jesus will proclaim a Jubilee at His Coming." This is the magical appeal.

"Whatever form its social ramifications may have taken, the jubilee was, and remained, a religious affair, for the atonement of sin (see Lev. XXV, 9)."

Rubel Shelly Sermon Reviews

Nashville Jubilee 2000 will use the popular theme: "They Cried to the Lord." However, it will not be a repentance but a catchy theme which, as always, totally perverts the Word and message of God. This is undoubtedly part of the ongoing Navigating the Winds of Change method of always introducing something to upset the equilibrium of the "resistnicks" so they can throw in some more deliberately-misused Word of God. They are safe because they have relegated the Doctrine to the trash-heap of modern religion as they move on to Post Modern or Post Denomination paganism.

When the always-faithless and idolaterous Israelites lost faith in the Word of God they "called an assembly" and cried to the Lord:

And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Exodus 14:10

Their "cried to the Lord assembly" was a fatal rejection of faith and the demand for a direct operation of God. Cried is the Hebrew:

Caaq (h6817) tsaw-ak'; a prim. root; to shriek; (by impl.) to proclaim (an assembly): - * at all, call together, cry (out), gather (selves) (together).

Nashville Jubilee 2000 "they Cried to the Lord" is based on the Second Incarnation it speaks of the "Now but Not Yet Kingdon." It is part of a wide-spread belief system that Jesus Christ will not be able to restore His kingdom as a earthly kingdom without the aid of preselected men as spiritual warriors who already using secular means. For instance, the word "weaopn" in Hebrew is the same as that for a musical instrument. Instruments assuredly assault the flesh and the drug-high is sold as jubilattion or "exhilaration" or enrapture which means "rape."

This "cried to the Lord" assemblies was specificially anti-God and therefore Lord Jesus Christ would demand that "we not go out" because the Kingdom of God is within you. Of Jesus it was prophesied:

BEHOLD my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. Isaiah 42:1

This spirit was not a younger "family member" or kinfolk riding on the shoulders of Jesus the "secon" person of the Godhead. Rather, Isaiah 11:2 said that it would be the spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, fear of the Lord and quick understanding.

He shall not cry, nor lift up (magnify Himself as keynoter), nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. Isaiah 42:2

A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. Isaiah 42:3

He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. Isaiah 42:4

As long as self-seekers, self-promoters of Nashville Jubilee 2000 are calling assemblies and crying out to the Lord they are not imitating Christ. Rather than Christ-O-Centric they are in effect anti-christ because they want His "person" to enflate their own wineskin but they have no room for His Doctrine or teachings. They cried to the Lord, "Lord, Lord" but they didn't obey Christ's laws or commandments.

After rejecting faith and God's designated prophet,

And Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. Exodus 14:13

"The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace." Exodus 14:14

They cried to the Lord but this was positive proof that they rejected His commandments (doctrine) and depended on their crying out. Not even Moses understood that faith must become an active verb or it repudiates the Word of God. Therefore, in contrast to Jubilee 2000.

And the Lord said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. Exodus 14:15

And obey my commandments: Jubilee 2000, Jubilee 2000,

But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea. Exodus 14:16

At Sinai, the people would again reject the Book of The Covenant, fall back into the sensible worship of Osiris the god worshiped with music around the form of the visible agent, Apis the golden calf. Their worship was in effect celebrating the Jubilee before they had victory. They cried to the Lord but it was not Yahweh.

In the New Testament, when Peter rejected the Words of Christ and lost his faith he cried to the Lord:

But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. Matthew 14:30

Others cried to the lord. However, it was not the theme of a hypocritical called assembly; it was the lost cry of a loving mother.

And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. Matthew 15:22

When the Jubilee 2000 people "cried to the Lord" there is ample proof that they do not have concern for the lost "daughters" of the world who will listen to the "gospel" but will be diverted from spiritual truth with carnal weapons or as Paul would say, "lifeless instruments."

When hundreds of thousands of dollars are squandered to teach people how to "lift holy hands" or to "lay on of hands" we really do want to cry out: "Lord, has insanity been visited on us for rejecting your Word?" After all, Paul identified musical prophesying as insanity of madness.

Or how about "prayer concerts" where a prayer quartet prays as a public performance in the "called out assembly" to which Jesus would never go?

Oh, God, You prophesied that women and children would rule over us!

The Prophecy was that Jesus would not have Cried Out To the Lord by calling or attending a public assembly.

And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites (performing actors) are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. Matthew 6:5

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:6

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Matthew 6:7

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. Matthew 6:8

Jubilee 99 and Nashville Jubilee 2000 sells itself as the promulgator of a new Willow Creek form of worship and church take-over by musical worship teams. It has as keynoters those who promote the use of Nazi-like mind altering techniques to Navigage the New Winds of Doctrine rather than to repudiate them. It has a speaker who claims the same inspiration for his book as the Bible claimes for the Holy Spirit. Its swaggar and even blasphemous jokes about the Godhead; its promotion of wine drinking through the New Wineskin dogma and other self-elivating techniques proves that it is not calling an assembly to cry out to the Lord because it believes that it is lost beyond redemption. -- but this may be the supernatural sign as musical worship was both the cause of rejecting the Word of God (Job 21, Amos 5; 6; 8; Isaiah 5 and Ezekiel 33).

Rather, its disciples claim to be Post Modern which accepts only the Core that Jesus "did it" but then rejects His Doctrines and those He as Spirit inspired through men like Paul.

When Jesus Cried Out While Paying the Price for the Sins of the Mockers they did, and would today, feed Him Vinegar or Wine.

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour Matthew 27:45

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Matthew 27:46

Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. Matthew 27:47

And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. Matthew 27:48

The Psalmist always cried to the Lord because he violated every Law of God and could never feel the presence of God's Spirit.

Nashville Jubilee 2000 carries many secret messages. First, it means, like the Catholic Jubilee and many pagan religions, if you come to the centray sanctuary and watch the rituals performed by the God manipulators the thrill you felt proved that the gods were no longer angry and you had your sins forgiven.

Next, Jubilee 2000 implies that people in the old "deliterious and decadent and rural" churches need some superior power to set them free.

Then, the "lands" or the church buildings are literally wrestled away from those who legally bought them and given to the new Jubilators. Those who paid the bills are out in the cold to meet in the high school gym.

This "restoration" of the first but incomplete "restoration" or second incarnation will be demonstrated in physical things even if Jesus said that His kingdom was in the heart and not of this world.

They Cried To the Lord To Redeem the World

Only when the church has experience the second incarnation and has restored the physical kingdom is Christ even remotely competent to come and restore the spiritual kingdom.

"At the Jubilee, all the debts were canceled, all the slaves were set free, all the land returned to its rightful owner. This is a physical example of the spiritual truths that are fulfilled in Jesus Christ, and will be finished at His Second Coming. The debt of sin will be canceled, the slaves of sin will be set free, and the rulership of the earth will return to Jesus Christ and His Bride forever."

Jubilee's start on the Day of Atonement. Jubilee 2000,

"(Atonement, AT-ONE-MENT, AT ONE WITH GOD, when God and humanity come together. When Jesus Christ returns for His Bride, there will be AT-ONE-MENT.)

"A Jubilee occurs every 50 years. The 6,000 years of man will exactly complete 120 Jubilees. The root 12 in the number 120 is significant in that the number 12 denotes a completion number for man. There were 12 children of Israel, creating 12 tribes of Israel; and 12 disciples of Jesus.

But didn't Jesus come to proclaim the final and effective Jubilee?

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2) to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, Isaiah 61:1-2 (NIV)

The premillenial theme is that not now but perhaps later. We have to travel to Nashville or Jerusalem to hope that the Lord Jesus Christ will finally do what He apparently failed to do the first time!

Describing Caneridge, Conkin notes that people look for external effects to prove the "at-one-ment" with God and the urge for the second incarnation in which Christ is resurrected just so that we might die with Him again ad a continuous form of Jubilee:

"Sinners dropping down on every hand, shrieking, groaning, crying for mercy, convoluted; professors of religion praying, agonizing, fainting, falling down in distress, for sinners, or in raptures of joy! Some singing, some shouting, clapping their hands, hugging and even kissing, laughing; others talking to the distressed, to one another, or to opposers of the work, and all this at once--no spectacle can recite a stronger sensation.

And with what is doing, the darkness of the night, the solemnity of the place, and of the occasion, and conscious guilt, all conspire to make terror thrill through every power of the soul, and rouse it to awful attention." (Letter quoted by Conkin, Cane Ridge, p. 93-94).

"Soon the sheer confusion practically subverted the outdoor preaching. Small groups joined in prayer or in loud hymn singing, with singing the most enjoyable group activity and the one that often most affected an audience... More conventional shouts and groans joined with a near babble of speech, some incoherent, some later distinguished as holy laughter or singing." (Conkin, p. 94).

"They do bear comparison to the ring shouts and dancing so often observed in black religious services, which were probably a survival of African religious practices. Indeed, black religion in the South may have had some influence on expected or sanctioned ways of giving bent to religious ecstasy at Cane Ridge.

"What the exercises revealed were religiously serious people who, in a powerfully suggestive environment, chose,

or were forced, to reenact the drama of Jesus' passion and the ever-recurring drama of their own tortured quest for salvation.

These mutually reinforcing dramas forced people toward experiential poles--on one hand the extreme of personal revulsion and self-doubt, on the other that of exaltation and joy." (Conkin, Cane Ridge, p. 104).

Shelly/Harris speak of the kingdom as in the fermenting process before Jesus came but it did not complete fermentation. Therefore, we must open the church to include even more foreign leaven so that it will ferment with exuberance. The history of all such movements show that in the end the new wine will exhilarate for a time but will then turn to vinegar. A common sign as an exhilarating worship service as the new wine ferments but becomes more toxic.

The Star of 2000 By Jay Gary

"Ed. Note: Because Tabernacles is encompassed by Jubilee, the celebrations in the two seem to become one in this statement. Even in the opening praises of the book, Eagle's Nest Pastor Clarice Fluitt declares,

"This is an incredibly prophetic book. Jay Gary has peered into the spirit realm and drawn from God's secret place. He declares that the church must prepare a celebration, a festival for, about and with Jesus, our honored guest and royal Bridegroom. The Star of 2000 is infused with a biblical revelation of fullness, sonship, maturity,

and perfection of the glorious triumphant church - the Feast of Tabernacles. Read the book."

"The annual calendar of Israel was built around three major festivals: Passover, Pentecost and Tabernacles. These celebrations in Jerusalem were anything but boring. There was dancing, singing and exuberant celebration before the living God.

"The Year of Jubilee encompassed these three festivals, only raised to a higher power.

"The clear call of God across the millennia is that we are invited to come into His presence and feast on Him. "On the last and greatest day of the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus "stood and said in a loud voice, 'If anyone is thirsty, let him come and drink' (John 7:37). Then as well as today, Jesus calls us to experience His jubilee." ( Jay Gary JUBILEE, p. 84-85)

However, except for premillenialism and other Messianic groups, Christ came to fulfill these festivals. He is our Passover. Furthermore, Jesus refused to go to the Feast of Tabernacles until the outrages were over and perhaps he could teach. Those who had just finished their "jubilee" with singing, dancing, instrumental music, book fairs, pathetic sermons and poems, were on the prowl to find their Messiah! If we have experienced the Atonement we will simply not feel the need for someone to work miracles on us with wine out of the wineskin and musical women.

Rubel Shelly and Randy Harris deny that the Church is the full kingdom as it is to come. For the kingdom to come revivals such as Jubilee 2000 must manufacture a new wineskin which will hold then now-fermenting kingdom and gospel. However,

"Tied up with this belief of a last-days revival and a great harvest of souls is the supposition that

the church will establish God's kingdom HERE ON EARTH.

According to those who promote this belief, after we take dominion of the earth again we are to set up righteous rulers and begin to prepare the kingdom so that Christ can return to earth again and rule the kingdom that WE have prepared for Him. Lee Grady "believes that God is establishing His Kingdom on earth THROUGH the diligent and gradual WORK OF THE GODLY...."(22) Thomas F. Reid declares: "We must make ready the world for Christ's coming. The Ayatollah could not return to Iran until his followers had sufficiently prepared for his return. In a profoundly deeper way, THE CHURCH MUST PREPARE THE EARTH FOR THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST." Yet another promoter of this Kingdom Now / Reconstructionist theory is Earl Paulk. He writes: "In Matthew 24:14, Jesus clearly says that

HE CANNOT RETURN for His Bride UNTIL she has demonstrated the Gospel of the Kingdom to all the nations of the earth.

Until the church can demonstrate the alternative Kingdom, JESUS CANNOT COME AGAIN.

God no longer has the authority to send Christ back to earth, because He will not circumvent His eternal plan. While no man knows the day or the hour, I can say with the authority of God that

CHRIST CANNOT AND WILL NOT COME BACK UNTIL we have demonstrated the Gospel of the Kingdom to the nations of the earth. That task demands a mature church, which will have become an alternative to the kingdoms of the world. That is what the church is all about and JESUS CHRIST'S RETURN IS UP TO US."(23)

Because the laughing exercises flow from the same mind manipulation as "bringing the worshiper into the presence of God" with musical facilitators (manipulators), the Jubilee 2000 people are closely in bed with Promise Keepers in hoping in vain that breaking down the walls will permit God to establish the kingdom because He was defeated by Satan the first time:

"To achieve this kingdom on earth, these proponents claim that we must all come together as one united whole. Herein lies the problem.

"Because denominational differences fade under the influence of the laughing phenomena,

it will be very useful in bringing about the restoration of a united Church as well as supplying the manpower to handle the coming harvest."(24)

In other words, the laughing revival will play a prominent role in uniting peoples of different faiths and religions to help bring in the one world church that the New Age movement is working for.

"Sadly, the laughing (Musical Worship Teams or manipulators) revival is leading us towards the one world religion

where Scriptural doctrines and beliefs are ignored for the sake of "unity."

"You probably already know that when sheep are lead to the slaughter, there is a goat (called a "Judas goat") that goes before them to lead them to their death. After the goat has guided them to their destination, he turns aside while the sheep blindly are led to destruction. I'm afraid that the so-called "Christian" leaders in many cases today are leading the people as sheep to the slaughter.

"Remember how the animals noises such as lions, eagles, oxens, etc. have been manifesting in the meetings? Also, as was mentioned in my last article, Rodney Howard-Browne calls himself the "Holy Ghost bartender" (from new wineskins) and claims he is serving "new wine." Charles and Frances Hunter refer to this as "'Joel's Bar' where the drinks are free and there is no hangover!" (28) Howard-Browne encourages people to: "Take another drink...the bar is open....Be filled! We loose the power! Have another drink!" (29) With all this in mind, listen to the words of Jeremiah:

"They shall ROAR TOGETHER LIKE LIONS: they shall yell as lions' whelps. In their heat I will make their feasts, and I will MAKE THEM DRUNKEN,

THAT THEY MAY REJOICE, and sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith the LORD. I will BRING THEM DOWN LIKE LAMBS TO THE SLAUGHTER, like rams with he goats" (Jeremiah 51:38-40). This is an amazing prophecy when you consider what is taking place with the holy laughter movement.

"As Christians we should have no part in this movement. "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" (Matthew 15:14 ).
