SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MODERN JEWISH CALENDAR
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MODERN JEWISH CALENDAR
I’m on my second reading of Jonathan Cahn’s great end-time book, The Harbinger. I decided to check out the Shemitah relationship between 2001 and 723 BCE, when the 10 northern tribe nation of Israel was destroyed by the Assyrians. Elul 29, 2001, or Jewish year 5761 minus Elul 29, 723 BCE, or Jewish year 3038 equal 2,723 years. 2,723 years divided by 7 equal 389 Sabbatical cycles, exactly! I’ve only been studying the Hebrew calendar, Jubilees and Shemitahs for about 6 ½ years now, and found that none of the discovered Sabbatical or Jubilee years in antiquity correlated to the modern Jewish calendar. The modern Jewish calendar seems to be off by a few years. But, after reading Mr. Cahn’s book and watching his Harbinger DVD, I clap my hand over my mouth. If Yahweh is judging America, Great Britain and modern Israel according to the modern Jewish calendar, who am I to argue with Yahweh? Romans 9:4 convinced me that the recognized Jewish authorities have authority with Yahweh on earth to set the calendar and Feasts, etc. “Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of Yahweh, and the promises.” The best chronology researchers and scholars believe Israel was destroyed in 723 BCE. Mr. Cahn’s revelation confirms that year to me. I’m speechless.
Friends, America and Great Britain are tied to ancient Israel, whether or not you believe it, it’s a true fact of life. We may not be in the land of Israel, but Yahweh still expects His people to obey His commandments and statutes. He enjoys fellowshipping with His people on Sabbath and the Feast days. To follow Sabbath and Sabbatical year principles is to walk in the blessing of Yahweh. To not follow Yahweh’s Feasts and Sabbatical laws is to walk in the curse. America and Great Britain have thrown Yahweh out of their national public life. We are walking in defiance of His laws, commandments, and statutes. America is now walking in defiance of Yahweh’s warning sign judgments since September 11, 2001. Unknowingly, and unfortunately, our national leaders have spoken the vow of defiance of Isaiah 9:10, repeatedly, since 9/11. Without repentance, America and Great Britain are finished.
George Washington, as the first president of the United States of America, after his inaugural address on April 30, 1789, walked with his cabinet, and first Congress to St. Paul’s Chapel, in New York City, where they prayed and dedicated America to Yahweh. St. Paul’s Chapel is the only building on Ground Zero in New York City that survived destruction and damage on 9/11. But, Yahweh’s judgment returned to America’s consecration ground, Ground Zero. Yahweh has been trying to get America’s attention and wake her up for eleven years now. He is calling us to repentance as a nation.
Yahweh promised to heal our land, if His people would humble themselves, pray, seek Yahweh, and repent. 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Yahweh’s promise is still valid, but are Yahweh’s people listening? Some in Christianity are trying to merge Christianity with Islam. Are some Christians stupid, or what? The god of Islam is Allah, a little fat demon. Bible translation companies are trying to eliminate phrases from the Scriptures that show the relationship between Yahweh the Father and Jesus His Son, so they don’t offend Muslims. Are some Christians stupid, or what? Gender neutral Bibles, homosexual Bibles, are some Christians stupid, or what? Christianity and Islam are polar opposites, there is no relation between the two. One group is trying to take over the world for the Creator of the universe, the other group is trying to take over the world for a demon. When a Muslim group comes into a Christian church to worship, they dedicate that church to Satan, through their god Allah, a demon. Islam sees itself as dominant and superior over all other faiths in the world. Does that not remind you of someone you know? Isaiah 14:10-16, “All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? 11Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. 12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Yahweh: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;” I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation; there’s Chrislam in a nut shell, straight from the pit of hell, conceived in the mind of Satan himself. Are some Christians stupid, or what?
George Washington unknowingly gave a short 26-word prophecy in his inaugural speech, on April 30, 1789, “the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” Forgive us, Goeorge, for letting you down. Father, forgive us for casting you out of our national scene. Forgive us for our arrogant, defiant spirit that is plunging us into national idolatry. Father, forgive us for murdering our future generations through abortion. Forgive us for loving money and the ways of the world more than loving You and Your ways. Father, forgive us our sin debt as we forgive those who continuously sin against us. Father, forgive us our personal financial debts and national financial debts, as we learn to walk in your Sabbaths, Sabbatical years, and Jubilees, that have debt forgiveness BUILT IN to your Law!
America, repent, because we are tied to ancient Israel by spirit, by Sabbatical Cycles, and by Yahweh’s law. The ancient kingdom of Israel did not repent and was destroyed by the Assyrians in 723 BCE. In the early sixth century BCE, the ancient kingdom of Judah did not repent from not observing the Shemitah years, and spent 70 years in captivity in Babylon, one year for each Sabbatical year they had not observed in the Promised Land. Father, I break the foolish, defiant vows our national leaders have spoken in ignorance over the last 11 years. We are your humble servants, save us oh Lord, we pray, for Yeshua’s sake, and for your glory.
Since 1789, America should have observed 31 Sabbatical years. Since 1776, America should have observed 33 Sabbatical years. Since 1607, when Jamestown, VA, was founded, America should have observed 57 Sabbatical years. Since 1066, Great Britain should have observed 135 Sabbatical years. Trust me, America’s days are numbered, and so far, we are found very wanting. It’s past time to repent, one by one and nationally. You don’t have to like Jews, you don’t have to like their modern Jewish calendar, you don’t have to like the modern nation of Israel, you just have to bless them, or be cursed by Yahweh. Genesis 12:3, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Trust me, you want to be blessed by Yahweh.
Even so, come Master Yeshua,
