I The 9/11 Shemitah
A In 2000, the U.S. was enjoying an expanding economy, but out national departure from God has also expanded, progress.
1 The Shemitah began in Sept. 2000 & our market begins to decline... not yet recession.
a Recession is dined by several factors: employment, sales, & production.
aa In the spring fo 2001 we see things like GNP, employment, stock market beginning to collapse together.
bb Remember the Shemitah causes production to decline. (No crops in field)
b Shemitah begins almost unnoticeably until the climax of Elul 29 - The day of nullification/remission... fall (September 2001)
2 Typically before God judges a nation/people group, he gives them a warning, alarm, harbinger.
a It’s hedge of protection is removed, enemy allowed to strike.
aa Strike is limited in scope, duration... shaking.
bb The nation is then given a grace period to either turn back to God or continue down their road of destruction.
b 9/11/01: God gave America a warning.
aa Hedge removed, limited attack, shaking, wake up call.
bb Like Ancient Israel... America refused to return to YHWH. (Maybe even more defiant than pre 9/11)
cc There was no revival, repentance, with without repentance there could be no renewal.
dd We slashed interest rates, stimulus packages all in an effort to help our economy/finances... the seed of one collapse would bring the next collapse.
c 9/11 didn’t happen just any ol year - It was a Shemitah year!
B Shemitah primarily impacts a nations economic/financial realm... so did 9/11.
1 The places struck lower Manhattan. (Financial district, Wall Street)
a When the jets hit the WTC, it forced the NY stock exchange to shut down for nearly a week. (Tuesday 9/11 - Monday 9/17)
aa When the NYSE opened on 9/17, it plunged 684 points - the greatest one day crash in U.S. history, up to that day.
bb 9/17/01 was Elul 29 of the Shemitah.
b The greatest financial collapse in the U.S. history up until that day took place on the very day given in the bible to wipe away the financial accounts of a nation.
2 The 19 hijackers, 4 planes, triggered more than just a new American war in the Middle East... it made the NYSE closed for a week/frozen.
a When the market opened up on 9/17, it opened at the same number that appeared on 9/11 when the calamity began... As far as the NYSE was concerned, there was no space between 9/11 and 9/17.
b What’s even more remarkable is that right year later (on Elul 29) the market opened at the same number it did on 9/11 & 9/17.
C There is a link between 9/11 and Elul 29.
1 9/11 is usually measured/remembered for the horrific loss of life, villainist of the terrorists.
a Without the events of 9/11... no stock market crash on 9/17.
aa No crash, no shaking economy/finances.
bb No connection between Wall St. & Tishri.
b The timing of 9/11 had to be perfect to be part of the Shemitah.
2 The timing of Ancient Israel’s judgement in 586BC was locked in the mystery of the Shemitah... so was 9/11.
a Shemitah touches every realm of life, entire world, alters course of history.
b It’s not of natural/explainable origin - supernatural.
II The great recession that shook the world. (2008)
A The next Shemitah after 9/11/01 began in September 2007... the next month the stock market, that had been recovering began to collapse.
1 As we left 2007 & entered 2008 (Sept/Elul 29)
a Exactly 7 years to the day from the greatest loss in our economy (9/17/01 - 09/29/08) the accounts cancelled, wiped clean, debt/credit erased.
b 3,000 years ago a domino fell that triggered national judgement on Ancient Israel... and determined the timing of 9/11/01 and 9/29/08. (Shemitah’s finger prints)
2 In the last 100 years only two “stock market crashes in history” have born the title of greatest - Both took place during a Shemitah year... on Elul 29.
a In the Ancient Shemitah, the time period in between Shemitahs are exactly 2,569 days. (7 years)
b The number of days between 9/17/01 to 9/29/08 - 2,569 days.
B The amount of things that could go wrong - do so in sync. (Not caused by buying/selling/interest rates/stimulus packages)
1 These two events are linked by the Shemitah.
a These two events changed and transformed our world.
b Our retirement, 401K, work hours.
2 The Shemitah is like an unseen hand that wrecks/wreaks havoc on a nation/global.
C We know that our recent national disasters are from God’s hands because they’re too precise to be anything else.
