The 7th Shemita is here

Recommended Posts

"In The Mystery of the Shemitah, he (Jonathan Cahn) revealed the pattern with exact times and dates when these things may occur. Since this involves exact times and dates, Cahn has always added a caution that people don't put their main focus on dates, but rather on getting right with God, and a reminder that God is sovereign and cannot be put into a box and believers must not become overly dogmatic as to the timing of when these things are to take place."

 

Its just another method to be a date setter. :(

The Jews did not keep the sabbath years or jubilees.   The 70 years exile was so that the land could have fer sabbaths which it had not had  previously.   2 Chron.36:21  To fulfil 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 fulfil threescore and ten years.

Seventy years sabbaths are sabbaths of 490 years, 70 weeks of years, that takes it back to the time of Solomon.

There is one possible sabbath and jubilee recorded.   2 Kings 19:29  And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.

Psalm 91

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

IF something bad was gonna happen, and that is a big IF, God will provide a way. We could never stock up enough, nor be prepared enough, for things that you have placed before us. It is doom and gloom gospelizing in this thread. Yes things will get bad sinwise, but remember what Jesus said in the gospels? They will still be marrying and giving in marriage when the Son of man comes. Sounds like good days to me.

Reminds me of a theme park that has just opened here a day or two ago, called DISMAL Land.  

Visitors are met by a steward with a dismal countenance and MM ears who says "Welcome to Dismal Land" in a doleful voice. And the word on her back DISMAL..

"The following are strictly prohibited in the park – spray paint, marker pens, knives and legal representatives of the Walt Disney Corporation."

1 Timothy 5:8

Do you have enough faith?

That's not referring to stockpiling for a doomsday scenario.

If we are going to look to the one with faith, who has more faith, the one who trusts God to provide their daily bread or the one who builds bigger barns to stockpile more and more?

Mormons must have great faith because that "Christian denomination" teaches the necessity of stockpiling. Every Mormon family is expected to have a minimum of one months supplies stocked away. The preferred, and pushed for amount of stockpiling is for each family to have one year of supplies (or more!) stocked away.

They believe a great downfall is coming to America, a Mormon leader will restore America (something both Romney and Beck believe) and Mormons will be the largest group of survivors because of their vast stockpiles of supplies.

Many Christians dismiss the sermon on the mount  where Jesus Himself teaches contrary to the philosophy of most Christian doomsday preppers.

Well, I don't think there is anything wrong with having something put away for emergencies. Its common sense. Now, certainly our trust is first in the Lord, but it's, well, rather like when one has an injury. If you cut off a finger, certainly your trust is in the Lord, but you're STILL going to go see a doctor. My wife and I generally see to our own health issues-I once cut halfway 'round my pinky with a food processor blade, to the bone, spewed blood across the wall. My wife looked at me, said, "I just cleaned that wall!" then gave me some paper towels and told me to sit down and put pressure on it till it stopped bleeding. I said "I might need to go to the hospital for this", and she replied, "You know what they'll do there? Tell you to keep pressure on it til it stops bleeding! Now go sit down."  When the bleeding stopped, she cheked it, cleaned it, put gauze over it and duct taped it. It healed just fine, no infections, and virtually no scar.

However, when she fell and passed out and began to bleed profusely from her body, I called an ambulance and she went to the doctor. Neither time did I NOT have faith in the Lord to care for us, but this one time, we needed some additional earthly assistance.

This is how I see the storage issue-just because I store a week or a month's worth of foodstuffs and some ammunition for a gun or two, doesn't mean I don't trust the Lord, any more than a farmer who goes and sows his field and waters it and cares for it, doesn't trust the Lord. Sometimes the Lord, I believe, expects us to be proactive and preparative in life. Like Joseph in Egypt-were they crazy preppers? Why didn't Joseph just tell Pharaoh to trust God? Could God provide? Sure! He could have rained down manna for seven years and fed the entire nation, but instead He told them to be prepared. Why would it be wrong for us? I trust God, but I don't sit and twiddle my thumbs and wait for Him to do all the work-if I can add my eoofrts to my prayers, I do so-maybe God answers througyh giving us the wisdom to see the times and make wise preparations.

I don't think there is anything wrong with someone storing some supplies if they feel the Lord leading them to do so. The problem is, in telling others "the big ones coming soon and if you don't stockpile now you are worse than an infidel".

It's also contrary to Scripture to tell your brothers/sisters in Christ that if they come to you for help in an emergency they won't help them.

Doomsday Christians in America tend to be little different than their non-Christian counter-parts. They plan to stockpile as much as they can, then hoard it all to themselves no matter who might come by in need of help. Many not only plan to hoard their supplies to themselves, turning brothers/sisters in Christ away to starve, but are more than willing to shoot to kill those seeking help.

Meanwhile we read in Scripture of the early Christians willing to suffer the loss of all for the sake of Christ. We read of those who had their goods taken from them and yet rejoiced and were willing to give to others out of the little they had left.

If anything, if disaster strikes, rather than hunkering down hoarding our bounty and turning others away (or killing them!), we are called to be going forth sharing the Gospel and helping those we are able.

Our lives are to be a witness for Christ, not a witness of self-preservation; and especially not the witness of self-preservation at the expense of turning away brothers/sisters in Christ needing help.
