What a year this has been thus far! We must be in the time of Matthew 24 with nation rising against nation…and kingdom against kingdom…wars and rumors of wars…famine, pestilence…earthquakes…a lot of rocking and reeling in the earth. We’ve also had some of the coldest and hottest weather in the U.S. this year…many fires…flooding…more shark attacks…more airplanes falling out of the sky than I ever remember. Our government has agreed to allow Iran to build nuclear weapons…while pretending they are choosing a peaceful means of settlement. The Church worldwide has more persecution than ever seen in all of history…very possibly the greatest holocaust ever. This is the world scene!
On our national scene…we have people trying to re-write history…like this nation never split into to countries and fought each other. There were things going on on both sides that I would not have been in favor of. Slavery was not only in the south…but also in the north…as well as sweat shots and child labor and tenant farming. There were white people on both sides of the argument…because there was only a very small percentage of any other color here at that time…and only white had a voice. Women could not vote…and I’m glad we do now…but that issue was fought by men on both side of the argument as women did not have a voice.
It has been so wonderful here in Georgia where we have Confederate soldiers and president carved on Stone Mountain…to hear black young adults saying…”You can’t change what happened…You can’t re-write the history books.” These young people know what the Jews know. We can’t let people forget wrong-doing in history…or we might just repeat it. Slavery is not something we want to return to…nor the sweat shops…nor the child labor…nor the treatment of the Chinese who built our railroads…nor the treatment of the Native Americans.
The worst going on here in the U.S. is the changing of our government. We no longer have checks and balances of our three branches of government. Our elected officials no longer make the laws. If they do, and the president doesn’t like it…he writes an executive order to cast it down…or if they won’t pass legislation…he writes an executive order to pass whatever he pleases. Our Supreme Court passed law for the third major time that I know of this summer. It changed the Constitutional definition of marriage. In 1963…the Supreme Court took prayer out of school though there is prayer every day in the National Congress…both houses…and in each state. In 1973 it took the right to live from the unborn baby…not an egg or a sperm…but the zygote…the 1st cell of a person…that only needs food and time to grow into one of us…well now we have murdered over 60 million. We also have federally funded Planned Parenthood with our tax money…which has now been proven to have sold body parts for profit…and there is good reason to believe Wicca is the religion of several of the Planned Parenthood people.
Now, on the home scene…I don’t know about you but much has happened to our family of recent days. Our prayer list is long…many people struggling…sickness, distress, despair, loss of job…and more.
Did you read Harbinger or have you listened to Jonathan Cahn the Messianic Jew who wrote it? It is about warnings. Every Shemitah year…7th year of a 7-year pattern…God gives the opportunity to His people to Rest…Old Testament was planting…not sure all the Jews consider now. In the U.S. and in the Church…planting is not what we all do…but we do busy ourselves…and much of our business is not God-pleasing.
I hear Cindy Jacobs mention that 2015 was a year to recalibrate…to change, turn, about face. If I put this with the harbinger and the time for this Shemitah to end…September 13, 2015…as that is the end of and beginning of a Shemitah cycle of 7 years. Shemitah is a year like the Sabbath is a day…both for rest.
I’ve decided that since this is the year of Jubilee…the 49th year…the 7th year of a 49 year cycle…and that it actually is a symbol of not only rest from work but forgiveness…all debts are blotted out during a Jubilee year.
All of this has made me look closely at my life. Do I have any debts to pay? Not just financial…but do I need to ask anyone to forgive me? And, if I have those who have harmed me…do I need to make sure that I walk in total forgiveness.
I am a Believer…and I do believe my Messiah is returning soon. I know that the LORD told Hezekiah to get his life…his home…in order. I’m hearing the LORD tell me to do the same. I’m also hearing Him tell me to warn all that hear my voice the same thing!
We all sense the atmosphere going on around us! We all know the hour is late and it’s time to allow the LORD to correct His children while there is still time!
LORD I give You all the Glory for what You have given me this day to say…in Jesus’ Name…Amen and Amen.Tweet
