What does Hamas mean?

Leviticus 25:23

  • “The land must not be sold permanently because the land is Mine, and you reside in the land as foreigners and strangers.”
  • This has direct relevance to the conflict in Palestine today.
  • We weep for both sides.

What does Hamas mean?

  • HAMAS = violence or violent men
  • Psalm 140: Deliver me, on Jehovah from evil men. Deliver me from Hamas…

Charter of Hamas, founded 1998

  • To obliterate the Jews.
  • We have to weep for both sides, but we have to understand both agendas.
  • There is nothing in their charter about caring for their own people.

 

 

Luke 4:19

  • “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor; to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”
  • This is the Year of the Lord’s favour.

Leviticus 25

  • A Sabbath year of rest for the land (every seventh year).
  • A Jubilee year of rest (every 50th year). (The Year of the Lord’s favour.)
    • Returning
    • Resting
    • Coming home
  • In Leviticus, it’s talking about land. In Luke, it is applied to us. To forgiveness of our sins.
    • Returning to God. Return to dignity. Return to innocence.
    • Resting – you don’t have to work to get God’s favour.
    • Coming home – acceptable to God.
  • In this Jubilee season we live in now, means the God is looking after us.
  • “This tragedy occurred, but God did this…”
  • Our Shield of Faith won’t prevent every tragedy, but means God can work to turn your mourning into dancing again.

 


 

I declare the Lord’s favour is on me!
