September 23, 2015 Part 2

I have been asking the Lord about September, 2015.  I asked Him about this September 23, 2015 date "is anything going to happen?"  I do not think I received a direct answer but what He did share left me in amazement.

Bottom line up front:  There is a link between the day of atonement, Jubilee and the tribulation.

Today I stumbled across a brother Jonathan video from 3 years (roughly) ago.  Thanks to brother Jonathan and some commentary from the Spirit of the Lord during and after watching that video I believe I have more of an answer than I had before about this September.

What are the pieces of the puzzle we need to put together to get the big picture?

The Jubilee year begins on the day of atonement.  Why does a festive year like Jubilee start with the most solemn day of the Hebrew calendar?  You cannot get to the joy and celebration without going through the atonement and reconciliation for sin.  Sin must be dealt with first, then when we are right with the Lord we can all celebrate but first things first.

So here is what brother Cahn did, he typed in the words associated with day of atonement/Jubilee and searched the Bible for those words.  The words are "sin, iniquity, transgression" from Leviticus 16 (the scapegoat and the day of atonement."  When he typed those words into the search there was only one return.  Here it is:

Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place."

And there it is, a direct link between the day of atonement, the Jubilee year and the tribulation (Daniel's seventieth week).  But the Lord was not finished with this, there is more.....

What do we know about the Shemitah?

Leviticus 25 teaches there is a Shemitah year, a sabbath year of rest after every 6 years.  Israel stopped observing the Lord's command to rest the land every 7th year so what resulted was the Babylonian captivity.  Israel was to remain captive in Babylon for 70 years, 1 year for every Shemitah year that was not observed.

 Jer 25: 8“Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, ‘Because you have not obeyed My words, 9behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,’ declares the LORD, ‘and I will send to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land and against its inhabitants and against all these nations round about; and I will utterly destroy them and make them a horror and a hissing, and an everlasting desolation. 10‘Moreover, I will take from them the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones and the light of the lamp. 11‘This whole land will be a desolation and a horror, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years.

2 Chroni 36:21to fulfill the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed its sabbaths. All the days of its desolation it kept sabbath until seventy years were complete.

So?  What does that have to do with today?  The financial markets of the world have been a witness to the re-established Shemitah cycle.  Brother Cahn wrote a best selling book about this cycle.  Why has the Shemitah cycle come back to life?  What happened in June of 1967?  The reunification of Jerusalem after about 2000 years......Add the Shemitah cycles up from 1967 to this year and what do you get?  1967+49=? 2016.  When does 2016 start according to the Hebrew calendar?  This September.  Rosh Hashanah falls on 9/13/15 making Yom Kippur, day of atonement in the new year...2016.

So, if Israel has not been observing the Shemitah for the past 49 years (7 Shemitah cycles), according to the Lords judgement in the Babylonian captivity what could be next?  The Lord will force a sabbath rest (just as He did before) of one year for every Shemitah cycle that has not been observed.   One Shemitah cycle every 7 years divided by the total number of years (49 years-from June 1967, with provable market impacts every 7th year=verification of Shemitah years) not observed gives us a 7 year period of forced observance of the Shemitah cycle.

A 7 year period of forced Shemitah observance?  Daniel's seventieth week...To take all this to the next level we can realize the purpose of the sabbath day of rest and year of rest were to put worldly things aside for that time and focus on our relationship with the Lord.  If they will not do it willingly, it will be forced just as it was before.  Truly amazing.

An interesting fact to add to all this is the Pope will be in Washington DC to make some kind of announcement from the capitol on 9/24.

Time is short.  There will not be another Jubilee year for 50 more years.  There will not be another lunar tetrad on the feast days for hundreds of years (or something like that).  The point is we have every warning sign conceivable staring us in the face right now today.  Whatever happens in the days ahead, we cannot say we were not warned.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
