CAUTION: THERE ARE GRAPHIC IMAGES ON THIS PAGE TOWARD THE END!!!
In Part One I promised that I would present to you: “In Part II I will tell you the sin that has brought on these curses and also the time frames for you to begin your measuring of the passing of each 7 year period. I will let you know where we as a nation are in this cycle and how much time remains.” So, with that being said, my purpose is not to try to convince anyone of anything. I am merely trying to present to you what I have learned, which you indicated you wanted to hear. If I try to use theology or my own understanding of YHWH’s Word, I will fail. But if I present to you the facts and you then in turn research them for yourselves and commit it to prayer, you can then make up your own mind. If I try to argue theology I won’t have enough time to present the facts. So, I am giving you the opportunity to become your own theologian. Ultimately, it is each of us that will pay the price for what we believe and have done. That is my theology statement.
I know many of you will say, “All of this sounds mighty Jewish.” Well, you are wrong because 90% or more of Jews don’t want to hear this either. Most people do not want to hear or accept bad news. If you get it and accept you are a member of a small fraternity of believers.
The Sin, is it really that serious?
I am sure that by now you must be asking yourself, “What can be so bad or evil in YHWH’s eyes that not only would He destroy a nation but allow such bad things happen to His people?” Right? Well, the answer is very simple and is contained in the very same scripture I have already given you. Let’s look at it.
Leviticus 26:34, “Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest and enjoy her sabbaths.
Did you know that the land was supposed to rest? Why should the land rest? Where does it say that the land must rest? Is there any evidence that this judgement has happened in the past? Are these some of the questions that you have? If so, let’s now look for the answers.
Look just one chapter prior to 26, chapter 25 and let’s start in verse one (1) and read to verse four (4): “And the Lord spake unto Moses in Mount Sinai saying, (2) Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them, When ye shall come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the Lord. (3) Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; (4) but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the Lord: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.”
Oops! We are commanded to let the land rest. I guess that was in the fine print. Now, in all fairness to the educational system in the 50’s and 60’s we were taught that you should rotate your fields allowing the land to rest. This came from the teachings of agricultural experts that were trying to break the cycle of dust storms during the Dust Bowl era. We were also taught to plant trees along the fence lines to slow the wind down. I was taught to divide my fields into seven equal parts and to rotate them so that one part of the field was resting per year. Even this was wrong.
Now, I know some of you looked at this scripture and said: (1) That is the Old Testament and doesn’t apply to us, (2) It refers to the children of Israel and we aren’t the children of Israel, (3) When you come into the land refers to the land of Israel and we live in America so it doesn’t apply. Did I leave any excuses out?
I have looked for years and I have never found an “Expiration Date” on the Old Testament. I cannot even find a “Best When Used By” date anywhere in the Bible. All I see are phrases that refer to “a perpetual statute”, “everlasting covenant”, “a statute forever in your generations”, et al. Here is a New Testament reference you might want to think about: Revelation 11:18. He is going to destroy them that destroy His earth (creation).
Now, without getting into a theological dispute, I will refer the answering of number (2) to a man far more eloquent than I am let you read what he says on the subject. Please read Romans Chapter 11 and see what Paul says on the subject and either believe or not. That is all I have to say on the subject.
As for number (3) I will refer you back to Romans 11 again, but I also want to point out Jonathon Cahn’s excellent book “The Harbinger”. It would take an article as long as his book to provide you with the essential history of this nation so that you could understand that this nation was consecrated to YHWH. Now, before anyone says anything about his theology, I do not know his theology and furthermore I do not care. What I care about is the content and accuracy of the facts contained in the book. PERIOD!
Has this judgement ever happened before?
Undeniably, YES! Go to II Chronicles 36:14-21. Our primary focus is found in verses 19, 20 and 21 but read from 14 to get a little background if you are not familiar with this passage. In this passage you see that YHWH’s Holy city of Jerusalem is sacked, men, women and children killed or carried off into captivity and also the walls of Jerusalem are torn down and the Temple of YHWH is burned and all the vessels of service in the temple are carried off. Why? Look at verse 21.
“To fulfill the Word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed her sabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept sabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.” Now, go back and compare this to Leviticus 26:34 “Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest and enjoy her sabbaths.”
Do you see the connection? Do you see the fact that YHWH did not spare His Holy City, His Holy Temple and His Holy people, who are we to think He will spare us? Judgement is coming and it is just around the corner. This concludes the easy part, next is the difficult part, Biblical math.
How YHWH Counts – Biblical Math 101
I know, I know, you hate math. So do I. Remember, I grew up in a generation where our calculator was called a slide rule. Every culture or society has its own numeral system. Some are five (5) base, some ten (10) base, and some twelve (12) base systems. And, there are a variety of others but I think almost all of us are familiar with the 3 that I named. Th Roman numeral system is a pretty good example of a 5 base system. Our currency, our decimal system of weights, height, distance, and volume are common examples of a 10 (decimal) system. A carpenter’s tape measure is a good example of a 12 base system of counting, with 12 inches to the foot.
But YHWH’s system of counting is very different and it just takes a little investigation to discover what that system is and how to use it. Our first example of YHWH’s system of counting is found in Genesis chapter 1 through chapter 2 verse 4. (Gen. 1:1-2:4). By reading this passage you see that YHWH built the whole of Creation in 6 days and rested on the seventh. He blessed it and set it apart from all other days. There are many times in the Scripture that we see examples of the use of seven but let me focus on just a couple. Turn to Leviticus 23 and if you read this entire scripture passage you will see numerous times where we are told to count by 7. But, let’s concentrate on verses 15 & 16.
[Lev 23:15-16 KJV] 15 “And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: 16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.”
It sounds complicated but it isn’t, you count 7×7=49 plus the next day is 50. Now once again we could debate symbolism, shadows, and many other things but let me try to illustrate this to make it easier, hopefully.
I call this the Shavuot system of counting (named after the feast YHWH by the same name, research it-Lev. 23:15-16 et al.). You see 7 sets of 7 days (or Years) plus the first day or year of the next set is the Fiftieth or Jubilee year, in the case of years. Yes, I had to print it up, scan it and import it that way because I want to remain ignorant of a lot of things in the computer world. I know you geeks are laughing right now.) Please note: each grid of 7×7=49 years I call a Shabua. This is a revolution of time called a week in English but it is more than that and I will discuss it in a later article.
Years 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, and 49 are sabbatical years. These are the years mentioned in Lev. 25:4-8 and we are commanded to keep them as special years. We cannot plow, plant, harvest or prune our crops, we have to eat of whatever is growing of its own accord, we must let our neighbors, and even foreigners, eat of the voluntary produce. We must also let the animals eat of the voluntary growth as well. Do you see why farmers don’t do this? Because they would not make any money at all from their crops in a sabbatical year or so they think.
Now, you can gather milk from cows, goats, sheep or any livestock that you would normally milk, you can butcher animals and you can still fish. This scripture refers to letting the land rest and marvelous things happen when the land rests.
Here is another very important thing to remember about a sabbatical year; you must forgive your countrymen their debts to you. Whoa! Do you see why this is not the law of the land here in America anymore. Was it ever? Yes, it was prior to 1914. In 1913 the Federal Reserve Act was passed and in 1914 it was established. Prior to this time you could not borrow money for a period of time greater than 7 years. Slowly, and incrementally, the Federal Reserve has raised the time limits for home mortgage loans and even car loans. The scriptural point of view is that if you owe someone money you are a slave to the lender.
The are many things in these scriptures that we could spend days and even weeks on but I am trying to give you a foundation on which to build. We now know that to NOT allow the land to rest is a serious sin in YHWH’s kingdom, one so serious He will destroy even His chosen people. So if this sin is this big why has no one brought it to our attention? There are several reasons and most of them revolve around making money. And the next one is power, which usually goes hand in hand with money.
So when did all this change? Mostly, in the fourth century A.D. when the Vatican changed the calendar, the order of worship. Most of it was codified at the Council of Laodicea. It made it illegal to keep the seventh day sabbath and outlawed “astrology”. Now the outlawing of astrology does not sound too bad but it meant astronomy and to know YHWH’s calendar you had to observe the moon. ((See DANIEL 7:25 (this is a prophecy that a ruler or leader will seek to change times and YHWH’s laws, think about this) Isaiah 66:23, Psalms 81:3, Ezekiel 46:1, Amos 8:5 et. al.) Here is a side note, if you are not familiar with http://www.blueletterbible.org check it out.
Here is one of the things that amazes me; read Revelation 3:14-22. Does Laodicea sound like the place you want to be? If the Council of Laodicea changed the day of YHWH’s Holy Day and changed the commandments do we really want to align ourselves with “Church” of Laodicea? Just thought I would ask.
Right here I am going to make some statements but will not provide proof until in a later article.
In Part III I will give you my sabbatical/Jubilee chart that covers every sabbatical/jubilee year since Adam and will show you how to prove it to yourself and others if you feel up to the challenge.
Where are we as a Nation and how do we count the years?
Here is statement number 1; the last Jubilee cycle to occur was 1996. Remember, that the Jubilee year is the first year of the next cycle. So having said that let me itemize the 7 year cycles, what is in them and what is in store fore us. (Remember that the word “times” in Leviticus can mean “to multiply”. So each preceding 7 year cycle is “multiplied” to the next.)
- Cycle one is 1996-2002
- Cycle two is 2003-2009
- Cycle three is 2010-2016
- Cycle four is 2017-2023
- Cycle five is 2024-2030
I will stop here and break down these 5 cycles. Yes, there are two more.
Cycle Number One is categorized by Terror as mentioned in Part I. Look to Leviticus 26:16. Cycle Number Two is categorized by drought and famine. Cycle number Three is the Pestilence Cycle. Cycle Number Four is the War Cycle. And, Cycle Number Five is categorized by captivity and starvation.
As I stated Cycle number One began in 1996 so research “the year Osama bin Laden declared war on America” and see what you come up with. If that is not enough 1998 was the repeal of the Glass-Steagal Bill and that has created more havoc than OBL could have ever imagined. But 1996 is the beginning of the cycle so let’s begin there. Note that the time period for Cycle Number One coincides with 9/11/01 and the beginning of the Afghan and Iraq wars.
Cycle Number Two is the cycle of famine and drought. Please look at the chart below (I apologize for it being out of focus, once again the geeks are laughing) but you will see that the warmest years on record occurred during Cycle Number Two.
Cycle Number Three is the Pestilence Cycle and is categorized by plagues, destruction of cattle, make you few in number, wild beasts shall rob you of your children and earthquakes in divers places. Now look to Google or other search engines and see how geologically active this period of time is. Also look and see when some of the most damaging earthquakes have occurred and you will see that they match Cycle Number Three.
Cycle Number Four is categorized by war and once again pestilence, in the YOUR nation, and we shall be given over to captivity (Lev. 26:25).
And then Cycle Number Five is categorized by EXTREME hunger so serious you will eat your own children and grandchildren. After that you will go into slavery. Your wives, daughters, granddaughters and even sons and grandsons will be raped and then murdered. For the proof of what is coming you have no further to look than what is happening in Iraq, Syria and Kurdistan today. We, NSA in the 1970’s and ’80’s, spied on the Jordanian Diplomatic Corps and on numerous occasions heard the words of thanks for the King providing homosexual “escorts” for the visiting dignitaries, primarily Tunisian and Moroccan but dignitaries from all Arab countries. This is the way of the world outside the boundaries of the United States.
Okay, this is the end of Part II. In Part III I will give you a tool to verify the fact that it is possible to know when the exact sabbatical and Jubilee years are plus some research material. I know what i have outlines so far is not a pretty sight but it is fact.
