The Shemitah, the Blood Moons
and the Rise and Fall of Empires
Luke 21:33-36 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
1 Thessalonians 1:10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
The Shemitah is marked by the number seven. At my Birthday Service here at the pavilion, 2014, a Shemitah year, I turned 57, Butch turned 77, we had 57 people present
and 7 asked for prayer for Salvation. Lyril recently gave a message on the number 7. God deals in numbers.
The Shemitah is in years, what the Sabbath is in days.
The Shemitah is the seventh year and its last day,
is the final day and climax of the biblical seven-year cycle.
