SID: So Rabbi Jonathan has pointed out when we have the Shmitahs, that’s every seven years, meant for blessing by God. But if we’re not following God’s laws, it turns into a curse. Horrible things have happened in the history of Israel. Well we’re coming into a Shmitah right now. When does it start?
JONATHAN: The Shmitah begins September 25th. I can remember. It’s my birthday, so it’s easy. September 25th and then it goes until September 13, 2015. Now let me tell you, now, a few things. One is, two cautions, God does not do anything. It doesn’t necessarily have to happen every time. However, other cautions, He can. And the thing is that, what the pattern is, is generally this. At the beginning of the Shmitah, you don’t necessarily notice it.
SID: Listen. I am, if I was God, I wouldn’t even be waiting for Shmitah. I mean what we’re doing is we’re poking our finger in God’s eyes as a nation, here in the United States. I’m glad that I’m not God. God’s got so much more mercy than me. But if you study the Bible, He does have a point of judgment.
JONATHAN: Yeah. Yeah. And that’s the dangerous thing. Because when you combine this altogether where America is going, when you combine the harbingers appearing and continuing, when you combine the Shmitah, that’s the thing. The thing is this. In the last two Shmitahs, this is 2001 and then it’s 2007 and ’08, you had, the mystery is getting more and more precise and intense. It’s a build-up, because in 2001, you have the greatest stock market collapse in history happens on the exact day appointed in the Bible, Elul 29, to wipe out the financial accounts. Seven years later, 2008, you have the other greatest crash in American history, bigger, and it happens on the exact same day appointed in the Bible. The two greatest crashes happen exactly seven Hebrew years apart down to the days, the hours, to the seconds. So the mystery is getting more intense.
SID: You know, he’s going so fast, I want you to catch it. It is so precise what he’s saying, it’s the year, the day, the second. I mean, what an awesome God we serve.
JONATHAN: Yeah. And the thing is, what this indicates, Sid, is there’s intensifying. That means that the nation we are progressing towards judgment and that’s exactly what’s happening. It’s in America. So now, again, God doesn’t have to do anything when we say, but I’d be aware.
SID: All right. Tell me the exact date it starts and it ends.
JONATHAN: September 25th, and that’s the start, this year. And usually, again, at the beginning it’s not necessarily so noticeable. But if something is chosen for this year, then it’s usually, it gets, it builds up to its peak. That’s usually when things happen. Okay. Which is September 13th of 2015. Now there’s also, you know, we’ve talked about this before, it happens to be the blood moon period as well. Because the blood moon period is a year and a half. Well we’re in that half part. But the year, what’s left is totally Shmitah. So it’s all happening at the same time, the Shmitah.
SID: It’s like a convergence of warnings.
JONATHAN: It seems. And the other thing is that, here’s another thing, Sid. In the Bible, one of the signs of judgment is the darkening of the sun. Now we’re not saying every eclipse is. However, it’s, there’s something there. Here’s the thing. Get this. When that big, that peak day comes Elud 29, it’s going to be a solar eclipse on marking that day, the great day of nullification. At the end of the Shmitah there’s going to be a solar eclipse the same day. When that, we talked about the tower, putting this all together. When that tower, they just recently put the spire to make it the tallest in America, the day they put it up was another solar eclipse. And you know, when the last time, Sid, when a solar eclipse happened on Elud 29, it was 1987, you had the greatest wipe out of Wall Street in history right after that. So I’m not saying things have to—
SID: All right. This begs the question. You have been studying this, but not just studying as a scholar, which you are, but by revelation, I want you to tell me what you think is going to happen.
JONATHAN: I believe, whether it happens in this period or not, and I’d be ready, I believe without any question a great shaking is coming to America. And the shaking will affect the economy, will affect the financial realm and could be very well more than either of those realms. But it will affect that. Something like a famine in the land. I believe even services and infrastructure will stop. So I believe in a great warning and it’s in God’s mercy. Because at this point without shaking, I don’t believe there can be revival. God’s heart is revival. But we have to be ready. Anything that can be shaken will be shaken.
SID: Okay. We only have two minutes left. What is this—
JONATHAN: Seven Shmitahs.
SID: Seven Shmitah?
JONATHAN: Okay. There’s so much and there’s so many. So just to touch on this. Okay. When you get to the seventh Shmitah, that’s seven times seven years, 49 years, it leads to the Jubilee. So even the Jubilee is linked to the mystery of the Shmitah. Jubilee is about restoring, getting back your land, getting back your home, you’re restored to your inheritance. Well 2000 years ago, Israel lost its inheritance, lost the land. Well what happened is, remember the Jubilee only comes, starts at the year after a Shmitah. Well the restoration of Israel begins 1917 with a vow for declaration when they give the land back to Israel, written. 1917 follows the year of the Shmitah. It’s the next thing. It’s like Jubilee. It’s restoration of the land. If you go seven Shmitahs later from 1917, it brings you to 1967, the restoration of Jerusalem, right after the year of the Shmitah, the restoration. And the next one is coming, the next, you go seven more Shmitahs, it comes to, the next Shmitah is 2015. The year after is 2016. I’m not saying God has to. But it’s amazing what He’s done. It’s amazing. He’s in charge of everything.
SID: So this seventh Shmitah that is coming up could be, could be the wrap up, not just for America, but everything.
JONATHAN: It could be prophetic. And again, we can’t put it on a box, but isn’t it amazing. The Shmitah holds mystery, really, of everything.
SID: But the mystery of everything has to be simple. It’s in Yeshua, Jesus…
SID: The Jewish Messiah.
SID: Repent of your sins. Ask Jesus to be your Lord, live inside of you. Start reading the Bible. And I’m telling you, if you walk in the same peace that I’ll train you to walk in that God has given me, nothing will bother you. Nothing.
