Luke 4:17-21 (KJV) And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

In the synagogue they have a chair up front, and it is empty.  That chair is for the expectation of the Messiah to come.  People got mad at Jesus after He closed that book because He sat in that chair.

Jesus said,

Luke 4:18 (KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; …

That’s what He was announcing because He opened the book to Isaiah 61

Luke 4:19 (KJV) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.   

The “acceptable year of the Lord” is the year of jubilee.  Jubilee is a time where if you owed anybody anything, the debt would be cancelled.  This idea of debt cancellation was something you can see all through the scriptures.

Jesus was really saying that He was the debt canceller.  Let’s read about that in Colossians 2:12-14,

Colossians 2:12-14 (KJV) Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

Say, blotting it out.

If you have ever borrowed money, you got a loan with your name on it and you probably had to make monthly payments.

What this scripture in Colossians 2 says is when Adam sinned, he put your name on a note and Jesus came to get your name off it. 

During the time of Jesus, the merchant men who ran businesses may be borrowed money to start their business, to grow the inventory or whatever have you.  They signed a note, but they paid the note off.  They took that document and nailed it to the front of their business so the people who come will see this is a good business person, a person of honor, a person of integrity because they will pay their debt.  Now that should convince them or influence them in terms of doing business with the business owner.  Today you have the same thing, but they don’t nail this to the door of the business.  They will say this, “We have been in business since 1889.”  That is supposed to imply they are good business people and people are still doing business with them and they are in business to serve. 

I am saying here that Jesus was announcing, “I am the Jubilee.”  I am going to be nailed the Cross and when you see Me nailed, that’s because you are debt free because I’m paying your debt.

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 (MSG) At the end of every seventh year, cancel all debts. 2 This is the procedure: Everyone who has lent money to a neighbor writes it off. You must not press your neighbor or his brother for payment: All-Debts-Are-Canceled—GOD says so.

Wow!  How many of you know God has the last word?  All debts are canceled, God said so.

Now if you look in the Bible when the children of Israel came out of Egypt, noticed they had borrowed things, but they came out and the sea swallowed up Pharaoh and his army.  Debt supernaturally canceled.

Even in the New Testament a man came to the man he owed lots of money.  He said, “Forgive me of my debt,” and he forgave him.

Jesus teaching on prayer, He prayed “Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” 

I am saying to you that God is a supernatural debt cancelling God and because Jesus was nailed to the Cross, all debts are cancelled.  Now like anything else, if you don’t have faith and believe this, this is just another reading to you. 

So, you can take your bills and talk to them because I am sure they are talking back to you, even late at night.  You can say, bills, I am talking to you.  In the Name of Jesus, be paid off, dematerialize, disappear.  Probably the next thing you know, God will tell you to sow a seed and continue to sow as He directs you.  Pretty soon you will be debt free. 

Doing what I am telling you, my husband and I were able to pay off a 30-year mortgage in 3 years and 2 months.  Same with our cars, we paid them off in no time but then now we have paid for the last 2 cars with cash.  We have been out of debt for many years now and continue to sow and reap. We built a brand-new house without a mortgage. 

I am just saying, He can not only get you out of debt, but He can make you the lender.  See, you just don’t want to be out of debt, You want to make some money.  He can make you the lender and not the borrower.

Are you ready to be debt free?  Now let’s believe God. Are you ready to believe?  Do you believe that with God all things are possible? 

When we still owed on our first house mortgaged for 30 years, the Lord spoke to me and asked me when I wanted to be out of debt. The Lord gave me a choice. I said, “In six months.”  I continued to believe Him for six months and we continued to sow seed and at the very end of six months we got the harvest of the mortgage paid off.

In the Old Testament the widow came to the prophet of God and told him she was in debt and couldn’t pay it.  He told her to go and borrow some vessels, come in, shut the door and pour the little oil she had in the house into the vessels.  She did what he said, and she got debt free that quick.  He told her just one thing to do. 

I am giving you a faith assignment to do and that is to speak out loud when you will be out of debt.  You can do this because I did it and because the Word has told you, Deuteronomy 15:2 (MSG) …All-Debts-Are-Canceled—GOD says so.  So, you can say so too. The Word also tells you in Colossians 2:12-14 (KJV) when Jesus was nailed to that cross, your note was nailed to His cross and He became your Jubilee; removing all your debt.   Colossians 2:14 (KJV) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

You are out of debt!  God said so!  Now you say so!
