When the Israelites crossed the Jordan river into the promised land, they camped at what later became known as Gilgal which when translated means to ROLL AWAY. This place became so significant to the people of Israel in many ways. 1) Gilgal was a place of remembrance because this is where they set up a landmark of twelve stones as a memorial of Israel’s deliverance from Egypt. 2) Gilgal was a place covenant renewal because the Lord instructed Joshua to circumcise all the young men who were born in the wilderness. 3) Gilgal was the place of change of diet from manna to the produce of the land. 4) Gilgal was a place of celebration because they had their first Passover feast in the promised land. 5) Gilgal was the base of operations for all the battles they fought to possess their possessions. 6) Gilgal was a place of removal of reproaches. When the Lord said, “Today, I have rolled away the REPROACH of the slavery of Egypt from OFF YOU”, he was using JUBILEE TERMINOLOGY. The year of Jubilee (Lev. 25:8-10) was HALLOWED among the Israelites because it ushered the freedom of slaves and repossessing of lost possessions. A priest in office had to blow the trumpet in such a way that they could tell its implication. In the same Jubilee anointing I am blowing the trumpet to announce the ROLL AWAY SEASON. What you could only get once in a life time of 50 years, JESUS ROLLED IT AWAY ONCE AND FOR ALL WHEN HE DIED ON THE CROSS. In the next section we will dissect what a REPROACH is and why you need deliverance from this SATANIC CONDITION.
