The Harbingers of Judgment
The Harbingers of Judgment
Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn of Beth Israel Worship Center in Wayne, New Jersey has a series about the harbingers of judgment taken from Isaiah 9:10, “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with hewn stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will replace them with cedars.” You can listen to his 5-part teaching here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-1Next79yY His church website is at: http://www.bethisraelworshipcenter.org Mister Cahn ties the attacks of September 11, 2001, to this Scripture. You owe it to yourself and to your Mighty One and country to listen to Mr. Cahn’s sermon. Amazingly, on Sept. 12, 2001, Tom Daschle, then Democratic Senate Majority Leader, spoke to a joint session of Congress and quoted Isaiah 9:10. Soon after, he fell into disrepute. Several years later Senator John Edwards spoke words from Isaiah 9:10 and soon after fell from grace. In his first speech to a joint session of Congress in February, 2009, President Obama spoke the words, “we will rebuild”, again a quote from Isaiah 9:10. None of these men probably realized what they were saying, but the spirit of defiance from which they spoke is why America will continue to face the judgment of Yahweh. America could repent and receive another great spiritual awakening from the Spirit of Yahweh. Pray that we do, but don’t forget we have to fulfill Revelation 17 and 18.
You all may already know these things, but I did not remember from my American history classes that the first capital of America was New York City, not Washington D.C. President George Washington’s inaugural address was made at the Federal Hall in New York City on April 30, 1789. You may read the text of his address here: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/american_originals/inaugtxt.html Afterwards he and other leaders went to St. Paul’s Chapel to pray. President Washington dedicated America to Yahweh at the corner of Ground Zero, New York City. Here’s his prayer: “”Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large.
And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”” St. Paul’s Chapel was the only building at the corner of Ground Zero that was not damaged on 9-11. A steel beam blown out from the North Tower struck the sycomore tree at St. Paul’s Chapel and was destroyed, instead of the building. The foundation of America’s foundation was cracked, the foundation of Federal Hall, on 9-11. The attacks were a harbinger, a warning judgment to America to wake up. Some did, most did not.
Seven years later, the Stock Market crash happened at the end of the 6th month of the Hebrew calendar, September 29, 2008, which was Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar. Seven years from 2008 will bring us to the fall of 2015. What will happen then? Will we see another warning judgment from Yahweh? Will we make it to 2015? Will it kick off the final 7-year tribulation? 2015 is 21 years after the comet Shoemaker-Levy broke into 21 pieces and exploded into Jupiter, beginning on Av 9, 1994. Many eclipses will occur on Yahweh’s Feast days in 2015. Will we wake up in time and repent of our national and individual sins, or will we perish under the hand of Yahweh’s judgment? Will the judgments get worse and affect more people?
What most people don’t realize is that these warning judgments are following Yahweh’s Feast and Sabbatical Year calendars. He is always orderly, and He plans on bringing His Kingdom to this earth, sooner, rather than later. For some reason the Jews celebrate the Sabbatical year one year earlier than the historical Sabbatical years used to be celebrated. I believe that came about during the Jewish Sabbatical year debate begun in 1889. The historical Sabbatical began on Yom Kippur, 1889, whereas modern Jews would claim that the Sabbatical year would have just ended in the fall of 1889.
The Shoemaker-Levy comet broke up just before the historical Sabbatical year began in 1994, or during the Jews’ Sabbatical year. 9-11-2001 occurred just before the historical Sabbatical year began, or just at the end of the Jewish Sabbatical year, when debts should have been released. The Stock Market crash of 2008 occurred just before the historical Sabbatical year began, or just at the end of the Jewish Sabbatical year. I don’t dare try to predict what Yahweh will do in 2015, if we don’t repent, but I would guess that the judgments will be worse than what we’ve seen so far. Now for the scary news, according to Dr. Stephen E. Jones, blessed years for nations is 490 years (10 Jubilee Cycles), cursed years for nations is 414 years. If you consider America to have begun on May 14, 1607, with the founding of Jamestown, Virginia, then 2021 is 414 years later. Fall 2021 begins the Jewish Sabbatical year, the historical Sabbatical begins one year later in 2022. If America does not repent before 2021 CE, I would state with much confidence that we will not survive the year 2021 as a nation. I love the America that Yahweh created. I want to see another national revival, or Great Spiritual Awakening, in America. My heart breaks when I consider that it may not happen. I want to see people turn to Yeshua for salvation and forgiveness of their sins. But there is a strong spirit of defiance in America, as shown in Isaiah 9:10, and declared publicly and repeatedly by America’s leaders. Father, I ask you to break this spirit of defiance off of America today, right now, through the power and authority of Yeshua HaMashiach, our Master and Savior. Agree with me and believe and pray for revival and spiritual awakening in America and around our world.
And what about the historical Sabbatical year of 2029-2030? That’s exactly 2,000 years from Yeshua’s death, burial, resurrection, and ascension!!! And what about the historical Sabbatical year of 2036-2037? Well, that brings us to the 70th Feast of Weeks of Daniel 9:24-27, since Israel recaptured the Temple Mount in 1967!!! You see, there is nothing but exciting events ahead of us, until Yeshua decides to return to us!!!
You know the Middle East is about to explode in war, again, but check out the geologic happenings around the Canary Islands on the west side of Africa, which are DUE EAST OF FLORIDA. Residents of the Canary Islands are under evacuation orders RIGHT NOW. A recent earthquake CRACKED the earth’s crust, the EARTH’S CRUST, not some whole wheat pizza crust. Geologists expect the volcano to erupt anytime. The resulting tsunami would be 20 stories high, that’s about 200 feet high, and would WIPE OUT THE EAST COAST OF AMERICA AND CANADA!!! Watch the youtube video, including a computer simulation of the tsunami here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytdXOSW89gk&feature=related Could this be our 2015 or 2021-22 appointment with destiny? You east coast Americans may want to add scuba gear to your disaster preparedness list. Do not get caught up in the fear of the moment, but learn now to trust Yeshua with your life. We are living in perilous times.
It’s time to repent, seek Yahweh and His Kingdom, seek righteousness and humility. Zephaniah 2:3, “Seek Yahweh, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of Yahweh’s anger.” Is that not what Yeshua desires for us, and why He will rapture us out of here before the final 7 years of Great Tribulation? Luke 21:36, “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Rough times are coming to planet earth, I hope and pray that you are buckling down in your discipleship with Yeshua.
