Understand- September 13, 2015 Is Not THE DAY We See An Economic Collapse, Understand What Has Been Said
First we will look at if the bible and scholars teach the seven year, and seven day rest, a look at the Sabbath, than too clear up the issue that have many miss lead. Many are saying Jonathan Cahn said, September 13, on that day, the economy will collapse or have a big problem arise. He never said Sept. 13 that is the end of the Seven year rest, the end, not the day.
Lev 25:1 And Jehovah spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,
Lev 25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto Jehovah.
Lev 25:3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruits thereof;
Lev 25:4 but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath unto Jehovah: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
Lev 25:5 That which groweth of itself of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, and the grapes of thy undressed vine thou shalt not gather: it shall be a year of solemn rest for the land.
Lev 25:6 And the sabbath of the land shall be for food for you; for thee, and for thy servant and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant and for thy stranger, who sojourn with thee.
Lev 25:7 And for thy cattle, and for the beasts that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be for food.
This is what we have been reading about, hearing about the insight to every 7 years since the Captivity the Jews were not blessed for not giving the land a Sabbath.
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
This first verse in the bible is important, the world still debates creation or evolution. What follows in Gen is all true, non- believers think God did not create the world. It is a matter of faith, what is a need to understand, if you can not come to terms with how the world was created how many days, or were the six days a thousand years each, most theologians believe this, we simply do not know. What we do know, what the Holy Bible opens with is pivotal in everything else in the bible, simply, In the beginning God Created......That is the first words and it is the first step in our christian walk, our God Created, from the beginning.
Many reading this have no problem with the creation, but many do, so this is to you. Jehovah God created. (Elohim-The Trinity)
Gen 2:1 And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
Gen 2:2 And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
Gen 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it; because that in it he rested from all his work which God had created and made.
So we see in the very start of our Holy Bible the lord himself took a Sabbath rest, we are to take one also. It matters not what day of the week in the N.T. but one day a week is a must. Theology note, God did not need a rest, the Sabbath was not created for God, but man .
Paul tells us the difference of the covenant at Mt Sinai, and the New Covenant that is better, and sealed by the blood of Jesus.
You could argue with this, the Sabbath no longer is a must obey, meaning Saturday, its not, Paul said so, see Galatians.
This does not mean the Sabbath rest for man and the land is OK to over look. What we get from this is, it matters not what day your Sabbath is, it matters not on what day the earth gets a Sabbath, but the seven year at some point is still a valid Sabbath rest. In the Hebrew we learn it is not the Earth, or heavens , or Angles, or the Trinity, that must have a rest, but man.
This would add a new historical interest to this day above all others. We cannot say how much time it would take to make the parents of our race aware of the meaning of all these wondrous events. But there can be no reasonable doubt that he who made them in his image could convey into their minds such simple and elementary conceptions of the origin of themselves and the creatures around them as would enable them to keep even the first Sabbath with propriety.
Though the Scripture takes no notice of any significance or sacredness inherent in particular numbers, yet we cannot avoid associating them with the objects to which they are prominently applied. The number one is especially applicable to the unity of God. Two, the number of repetition, is expressive of emphasis or confirmation, as the two witnesses. Three marks the three persons or hypotheses in God. Four notes the four quarters of the world, and therefore reminds us of the physical system of things, or the cosmos. Five is the half of ten, the whole, and the basis of our decimal numeration. Seven, being composed of twice three and one, is especially suited for sacred uses; being the sum of three and four, it points to the communion of God with man. It is, therefore, the number of sacred fellowship. Twelve is the product of three and four, and points to the reconciliation of God and man: it is therefore the number of the church. Twenty-two and eleven, being the whole and the half of the Hebrew alphabet, have somewhat the same relation as ten and five. Twenty-four points to the New Testament, or completed church.
How wise is this provision! It is essentially necessary, not only to the body of man, but to all the animals employed in his service: take this away and the labor is too great, both man and beast would fail under it. Without this consecrated day religion itself would fail, and the human mind, becoming sensualized, would soon forget its origin and end. Even as a political regulation, it is one of the wisest and most beneficent in its effects of any ever instituted. Those who habitually disregard its moral obligation are, to a man, not only good for nothing, but are wretched in themselves, a curse to society, and often end their lives miserably.
As God formed both the mind and body of man on principles of activity, so he assigned him proper employment; and it is his decree that the mind shall improve by exercise, and the body find increase of vigor and health in honest labor. He who idles away his time in the six days is equally culpable in the sight of God as he who works on the seventh. The idle person is ordinarily clothed with rags, and the Sabbath-breakers frequently come to an ignominious death. Reader, beware.
Pulpit Commentary quotes Josephus;( His works can be read the link is to the left.
Profane history likewise vouches for the veracity of the statement of Josephus, that "there is not any city of the Grecians, nor any of the barbarians, nor any nation whatsoever, whither our custom of resting on the seventh day hath not come
Augustine writes at the close of his confessions: dies septimus sine vespera est nec habet occasum, quia sanctificasti eum ad permansionem sempiternam. But true as it is that the Sabbath of God has no evening, and that the σαββατισμός, to which the creature is to attain at the end of his course, will be bounded by no evening, but last for ever; we must not, without further ground, introduce this true and profound idea into the seventh creation-day
That is a profound truth concerning this issue, in glory we do not have night or day as the Sabbath has no night or day, and it points to the day in glory.
We have the bible, the scholars and the Holy Spirit to teach us. All together there is no doubt even in the New Covenant that this day, should stand, what day? To the Jew, Saturday, to the Gentile any day, but it must be A Day.
This fits perfect with what we have been hearing, watching, reading on this matter . I need to point out, I have read many places where people took what Jonathan Chan said as the set date of September 13, as being the day it hits the fan, he never said that, he said the September date was the end of the seven year Sabbath, thus he said, and means, the whole year, any time, not the September 13 date many are obsessed with. Understand reader, it is not a prediction that on the day of September 13, the financial world changes, it is any time, with September 13 the civil calendar, being the last day, of the whole year of the Sabbath.
It is all true, but I had to clarify this, as I read endless websites, see many videos, most are saying Chan said September 13 as the day, NO it is the whole year, not the end day of the year that we COULD see the collapse of the economy, I believe it will be in 2015, but we will see, all economic events and facts do point to this year, as the year we will see another economic event, or the full blown economic collapse.
