Every Seventh Year in the Sacred Calendar of the Hebrews is what we farmers would call a “fallow year”.
The land is to lay fallow. The vineyards are to rest. People, too, and are instructed to store up for the Shemitah so that they can rest and the poor may be taken care of in the year without harvest.
The last day of the Shemitah Year falls on the last day of Elul, the 29th day of the sixth month in the Sacred Calendar.
This last day of the Shemitah Year is called “The Day of Remission” or “The Day of Nullification”.
On this day, all truly Orthodox Jews are required to cancel out all credits and debts and start over fresh.
This means they lose claim to all the credit they accumulated in the last seven years and forgive all the debts owed to them. It is a complete “reset”. A financial Ground Zero. The slate is wiped clean and the game begins again the next day, Tishri 1, which begins the Festival of Trumpets and the most Holy month in the whole Hebrew Calendar.
The ramifications of this reset are always hard to deal with. The guys that used to have all the money have lost their liquidity. On the other hand, the other guys who were carrying all the debt, are relieved. Society gets reshuffled. Fortunes are lost and fortunes are made, and another seven years begins.
A Rabbi from New Jersey has established a very plausible and indeed, frightening, statistical correlation between the Shemitah and larger scale financial disasters and cataclysms, including 9/11. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn also notes a frightening correlation between what is happening in America today and what happened in Israel just prior to the Babylonian Captivity in 586 BC.
The Kingdom of Judah was given a warning of Judgment, a short incursion by the Assyrians that caused relatively minor destruction. The Prophet Jeremiah warned them to repent, but instead, they were haughty. They defiantly declared that they would rebuild with their own hands and make it better than ever. They forgot their reliance on God, first and foremost.
And eerily, so did the members of Congress do the same thing following 9/11. Without as much as lip-service to the Great Architect, they defiantly declared that they would rebuild bigger and better than ever. From there, everything has followed in lock-step, right down to replacing Sycamore Trees with other trees, just as King Zechariah did 2,600 years ago.
The Kingdom of Judah had also begun following after the foreign gods of the Babylonians and participating in idolatry and the horrific practice of child sacrifice to the Babylonian gods. Rabbi Cahn notes that just as in Judah then, carnality, selfishness, materialism, and criminality are steadily on the rise here, and millions of babies are now being sacrificed here, as a result of legalized abortion—all with the same effect: judgment.
Are we in the cross-hairs of Divine Judgment?
Jesus said, when you see the Great Abomination standing where it shouldn’t be standing, you will know that the time of reckoning is near.
And what is the Great Abomination? It’s a woman. A Babylonian goddess. She has many names— Semiramis, Ashtoreth, Astarte, Isis, Cybele, Columbia….as in District of? She is also known as the Mother of All Harlots.
Ashtoreth invented money and idolatry in general. She created her own religion— sacred groves, sex as a sacrament, ritual child sacrifice. Sound familiar? She is always shown as a beautiful woman with rays of light coming from her head…..yes, just like the “Statue of Liberty” standing in New York Harbor.
There she is, the Great Abomination, standing where she shouldn’t be standing. Jesus told us 2,000 years ago, and there she is.
We might as well paint a red-and-white target on New York City.
The Rabbi has some very important insights published in his two books, The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah, but there is just one thing…… he makes the common mistake throughout of talking about “America” when what he is really talking about is the federal United States.
Like nearly everyone else, he has been bamboozled into thinking that the federal United States is America, when it isn’t. There are two distinct nations here— one that is apostate, one that is faithful.
And this time, it is of vital importance that the faithful override the Babylonians, repent our sloth and gullibility, and do what has to be done to create a moral, spiritual, and cultural rebirth, beginning with turning our faces to our Father, with tears and trust.
The Jews of Jeremiah’s time left him to stand alone, just one young prophet to face off the weak and venal King.
When millions upon millions of Americans stand up and demand change, the US may indeed go down in flames, but America –-the actual America— will place its faith where it belongs in our Father and Eternal King. We will not be disappointed in our Holy One.
Remember Joshua. Remember Caleb. Remember Elijah. Remember Jeremiah. Remember Yeshua most of all.
Those who have been contemplating setting up more monuments to Ashtoreth and her consort, Satan, need to think again. Just like those who are busily eroding families and redefining marriage need to think again.
Just like those proposing to set up “Fellatio Bars” where a guy can buy a cup of coffee and a blowjob for $60, need to think again. Just like those sneaking around participating in nasty old Babylonian and Druid child sacrifices need to think again.
We are coming and we aren’t coming alone. The Angels of the Truth are coming with us.
~Something to ponder – seriously….
