vision for this 10th Annual Jubilee 2000AD Congress
was that the delegates would actually experience
the Grace of the Jubilee in their lives personally.
God honored that vision as the Congress unfolded
over five days of inspired preaching and
a real Ram's Horn proclaiming the Jubilee during
his opening Rally at the Congress.

his opening message Eddie told a packed auditorium
that Jesus had declared that the prophecy of Isaiah
61:1-3 was fulfilled in Nazareth 2000 years ago
when he revealed the Day of Jubilee in Luke 4:18-21
saying, Today this scripture passage is
fulfilled in your hearing.
Eddie pointed out that they, of all people,
should have known what it meant and rejoiced.
However, rather than rejoicing, the people tried to
Leading the delegates back to the Old
Testament Jubilee in Leviticus 25, they were asked
to imagine the scene leading up to the
trumpet-blast after fifty years of bondage, slavery
Taking it step by step from the 49th year,
then to the 7th month and to the 10th day and then,
to the very moment of the sound of Yobel, the
congregation began to participate in the
anticipation and joy that must have been
experienced by the whole nation of Israel at that

into a resounding version of Blow the

He then began to take them through the life
of Jesus. Through the crucifixion, death,
resurrection and the ascension right up to

after the resurrection.

This time it also included a powerful sound of
wind as the congregation heard that the Hebrew word
for 50th is, Pentecost!

blast was not that of a mans breath passing
through a (dead) rams horn, but the
Breath of the Word of God blowing through the mouth
of his Son; the living Lamb of God declaring
freedom and liberation to all!
Eddie went on to say, The sign that the
Day of Jubilee is in place, is that the Church was
established! The sign that the Jubilee Day is over
is when the Church is taken up from the earth when
Christ returns again in Glory!
The Jubilee is no longer a period of
Eddie declared, But
a person! Jesus is, The Jubilee!
As the congregation stood once more chanting
Jubilee! Jubilee! and rejoicing again
in powerful, vibrant praise, Pentecost seemed to be
manifest in the auditorium. This set the pace for
the entire Congress over the next few days.

It was a blessing for us to have Rev. Sage
preaching again at this Jubilee Congress after a
few years absence. Russell had preached our first
Congress in 1990 and was our special guest for
several years, so it was good to share in ministry
with him again.
"When Jesus was in the
house, it had such power, such an anointing in it,
that it changed people's lives. And that's what
this congress is all about: It's about setting

moves amongst the crowd to make a point during a
workshop on "Freedom in the Messiah Anointing".
As Rev. Sage
expressed God's idea of freedom he pointed out that
many people who look the same, act the same, dress
the same, speak the same will tell you that they
are free, but they are not. They are bound up in
the conformity of their group identities and take
on a persona that can be identified by similar
groups anywhere around the world.
Russell explained that when you come to
Jesus he sets you free from the enslavement of
group pressures and the sameness that makes us
mediocre. He pointed out that God had made us free
by creating us in his own image and likeness, that
we should be like him and not conform to the
"What is truth?" Russell asked. "Is it the
truth you read in the Sunday Times tomorrow
morning? The truth you read in your Time Magazine
or your Bulletin, or what you've heard on TV or the
Radio? That kind of truth? No! What kind of truth?"
Russell said. "You'll know the truth, and that
truth will set you free! What is free?" Russell
continued. "It means to be under no compulsion or
restraint. No enslavement or bondage. No
obstruction, to be unchained and loose. It is to
set at liberty! This is what Jesus came to give".
This session flowing from his workshop on
the "Messiah anointing" earlier in the day and
built on the overall Jubilee message with force as
Russell showed that enslavement was often passed on
through generation to generation. Pointing out that
many addictions such as alcohol, drugs and
promiscuous lifestyles like prostitution can run in
families, Russell offered a way out for those who
would take it. The response was immediate and
obvious as people went up to the podium for prayer
and ministry. The blessings flowed and many were
