“Does ANYONE ELSE out there know the significance of September 13?”
September 13, 2015 marks the last day of the latest, year-long, Shemitah (God’s seven year cycles that go back to the Old Testament.) See Leviticus 25:1-4 and Deut. 15:1-2. Shemitahs are a sign of judgment based on the covenant (and relationship) with God. If the people of Israel turned from God, then their blessings would be removed. Hmmm… has not America turned from God? Galatians 6:7 says God cannot be mocked! “A man [nation] reaps what he sows.” Then, Deuteronomy 28:15-68 – “if you do not heed my words…” Match these verses from Deuteronomy with what is happening NOW! Then consider these proven facts:
1) Look at the last two Shamitahs (2001 and 2008) – both experienced an economic down-spiral. Don’t be surprised if the next one makes the Great Depression look like a party with balloons and confetti! We’ve turned our backs on God (abortion, economic, racial division, political unrest, eliminating prayer from school and courts, immorality, etc.) so how can we possibly expect His blessing? Remember, however, that it’s all dependent on God’s timetable – not ours! 2 Peter 3:9
2) Each and every Christian celebration / important date throughout history has lined up exactly with a Jewish festival.
3) Another Tetrad won’t happen again for another 400 years.
The 2014-2015 Tetrad Blood Moons:
Blood Moon – April 15, 2014 – lined up with Passover
Blood Moon – Oct. 8, 2014 – lined up with Feast of Tabernacles
Solar Eclipse – March 20, 2015 – lined up with Dedication of Moses’ Tabernacle
Blood Moon – April 4, 2015 – lined up with Passover
Blood Moon (the last for this tetrad) occurs on September 28, 2015 lines up with the Feast of Tabernacles.
God is Sovereign (absolute power / absolute authority) and is absolutely precise down to the very last detail. He never makes mistakes. He has a plan and we’re a part of it. Again, 2 Peter 3:9.
Not setting dates but it’s exciting to see how the pieces are RAPIDLY falling in place. 1 Thess. 5:4-11 / Rev. 1:1-3 To many of you reading this, this will mean nothing. To believers, it’s a wake-up call. BTW, I’m not talking Doom’s Day or a Zombie Apocalypse. I’m talking God’s time table as laid out in Scripture. And, I’m not a fanatic or some weird person obsessed with prophecy! I’m just stating the facts! It’s up to you whether you choose to believe, or not. In fact, don’t take my word for it. Study the Word for yourselves! Matthew 24, Luke 21, Mark 13, Daniel, Revelation, etc. It’s all there! Might I also suggest these books, The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn and One Second After by William R. Forstchen, and his new book, One Year After which was just released. There’s so many more books and resources I could recommend and some of them you’ll find on this website. Also, definitely check out Rabbi Cahn’s YouTube videos. Seriously, the time to get ready is now, although I fear it may be already too late for most. Don’t take my word for it, God said it in Luke 21:28, “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” You certainly can’t deny that we live in a very unstable world and it’s getting worse by the minute.
Sadly, even Christians (believers in Christ) are skeptic, saying “We don’t know the hour and day.” You’re right, in part, but many have not thoroughly studied the full Word of God and the Jewish feasts and festivals, the history of the Jewish people and the land of Israel, the elements of the Jewish wedding, or the warnings given throughout the Bible. It’s easier to dismiss the headlines by saying “it can’t happen here”, or not knowing the signs of Matthew 24, and not recognizing the stories of Noah and Joseph as pertinent for today. According to Scripture, we KNOW we are the generation that will see the return of Christ, so why can’t it be now rather than later? Read all of Matthew 24, especially verse 34: “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.” Dear friends, we have already passed through the portal of Matthew 24. Read also, Mark 13:30 and Luke 21:32. How many more times does God have to tell us or warn us to get our attention? The “generation time clock” began the day Israel became a nation in 1948 and it’s on a countdown! Matthew 24:32 Israel is represented by the fig tree and it became a nation in 1948. This is a whole different discussion!
Another argument for believers: “I plan to go up in the pre-trib rapture!” Really? We may and I hope we do, but show me Scripture that guarantees a pre-trib rapture and I’ll show you others that say we are going to go through a period of wrath that point to a mid-trib rapture. Most likely, the church will go through unforeseen persecution and in some parts of the world it already is. (Remember, the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation will be the greatest horrific wrath, and that is what – I believe – God will save us from.) Still, there are others firmly grounded in the idea that believers will go through the entire tribulation and their “argument” is pretty persuasive. ONLY GOD KNOWS but it’s easy to imagine that “His hand is on the doorknob” ready to tell His Son “Go! Bring My children home.” Read 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 and pay special attention to verses 4 and 5. I could go on and on. But bottom line, the absolute most important #1 reason to be ready for whatever happens is eternal. Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior? If you don’t, none of this is going to matter, but I urge you to seek God and His Son, Jesus, with everything that is in you. This is your only hope for everlasting life in Heaven. John 14:6 says, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. NO ONE comes to the Father except through me.'” And Romans 10:9 says, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” If you haven’t already, receive Him into your heart and trust Him to be your Savior today!
I’ve been thinking about something lately. Whether you are a believer or nonbeliever and have little children or babies, your little ones will be taken up in the Rapture because they are younger than the “age of accountability.” (Reference: accountability// children) To the nonbeliever, imagine your horror to realize that your young children are gone in a flash, in the “twinkling of the eye” and you have no idea what just happened. It will be one of the most horrific, desperate moments of your entire life to see your children missing without warning. But a word of warning to you, do not do anything desperate like suicide or take the mark of the beast (666.) If you do, you’ll never see your kids again – ever – because you refused to invite Jesus into your life and repent of your sins. Mightily pray for God to reveal Himself to you and His plan of Salvation. If you are sincere when you invite Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior, you can have the assurance of eternal life. But do it because you want Jesus in your heart and follow Him and for no other reason. You will probably still go through the Tribulation but never deny your relationship with Him and know that God wins in the end! The absolute best decision of your life. Also remember, God sees what’s in your heart and His grace and mercy are beyond our understanding.
Pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib, or just the horrific state of the world, I want to be ready for whatever life might bring. We should hope for the best but ready ourselves for the worse. Stock up on food, necessities, and use other suggestions on this website. Seriously, what do you have to lose? This is the greatest time in the history of the world. Ask the Holy Spirit to work through you to share the Gospel with a lost world. In John 4:35, Jesus says, “Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” The time is NOW!
