There is a strong possibility that God has scheduled annihilation for America between 9/10/2029 and 9/21/2036 -- unless we reform, and that includes observing His Sabbaths. I believe America is in the middle of a 35-year eviction process, which was signaled by 9/11.
By Lee Clark
Watching what is happening in America can be unnerving, because it appears as though we could collapse at any moment. But it is some consolation to know that God is completely in control of events on the planet, and that in fact He has a schedule and does things right on time. He has a purpose and a reason for everything He does, and offers protection to the repentant.
So before going into further explanation, I invite you to study the timetable below and ask yourself if we are not right on schedule for some very serious and devastating events which would be virtually impossible to recover from should we let them transpire. The more we let things slide, the more difficult it will be to reverse the trend.
Five phases of curses of Leviticus 26 for America and proposed dates of fulfillment
Following is a proposed list of the five seven-year curses of Leviticus 26 and their fulfillment in America. Each seven year cycle ends with a Land Sabbath, a year where God commands that the land lie fallow and that all debts are to be forgiven. Scripture is from the Amplified Bible.
Phase 1: Terror, Tyranny, Loss of Liberties
Leviticus 26:14-17 Sept 18, 2001 - Sept 29, 2008
If you do not obey Me and do not [obediently] do all these commandments, if, instead, you reject My statutes, and if your soul rejects My ordinances, so that you will not [obediently] do all My commandments, and in this way break My covenant, I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you sudden terror [9/11 Twin Towers fall], consumption, and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to languish also. And you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat what you plant. I will set My face against you so that you will be struck down before your enemies; those who hate you will rule over you [Patriot Act, TSA, Obama campaign], and you will flee when no one is pursuing you.
Phase 2: Obama-Nation & Great Recession
Leviticus 26:18-20 Sept 30, 2008 - Sept 13, 2015
If in spite of all this you still will not listen to Me and be obedient, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. I will break your pride in your power [Evisceration of Military, LGTB Pride Month, Obama-Nation, NDAA], and I will make your sky like iron ... and your ground like bronze .... Your strength will be spent uselessly, for your land will not yield its produce and the trees of the land will not yield their fruit [Mortgage meltdown, Great Recession].
Phase 3: Immigration Invasion & Military Occupation
Leviticus 26:21-22 Sept 14, 2015 - Sept 25, 2022
If then, you act with hostility toward Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times in accordance with your sins. I will let loose the [wild] animals of the field among you [unchecked immigration invasion, Trump Derangement Syndrome], which will bereave you of your children and destroy your livestock and make you so few in number that your roads will lie deserted and desolate [military occupation].
Phase 4: Four Horsemen: Conquest, War, Famine, Disease, and Death
Leviticus 26:23-26 Sept 26, 2022 - Sept 9, 2029
And if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I also will act with hostility against you, and I will strike you seven times for your sins. I will bring a sword [war and death] on you that will execute vengeance for [breaking] the covenant; and when you gather together in your cities, I will send pestilence (virulent disease) among you, and you shall be handed over to the enemy [conquest]. When I break your staff of bread [that is, cut off your supply of food] [famine], ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will ration your bread; and you will eat and not be satisfied.
Phase 5: Nuclear Annihilation, Exile for Survivors, Rest for the Deserted Land
Leviticus 26:27-39 Sept 10, 2029 - Sept 21, 2036
Yet if in spite of this you will not [attentively] listen to Me but act with hostility against me, then I will act with hostility against you in wrath, and I also will punish you seven times for your sins. You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters. I will destroy your high places [devoted to idolatrous worship], and cut down your incense altars, and heap your dead bodies upon the [crushed] bodies of your idols, and My soul will detest you [with deep and unutterable loathing]. I will lay waste your cities as well and will make your sanctuaries desolate, and I will not smell your sweet and soothing aromas [of offerings by fire]. I will make the land desolate, and your enemies who settle in it will be appalled at it. I will scatter you among the nations and draw out the sword [of your enemies] after you; your land will become desolate and your cities will become ruins.
Then the land [of Israel] will enjoy its Sabbaths as long as it lies desolate, while you are in your enemies’ land; then the land will rest and enjoy its Sabbaths. As long as it lies desolate, it will have rest, the rest it did not have on your Sabbaths, while you were living on it. As for those who are left of you, I will bring despair (lack of courage, weakness) into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; the sound of a scattered leaf will put them to flight, and they will flee as if [running] from the sword, and will fall even when no one is chasing them. They shall stumble over one another as if to escape from a sword when no one is chasing them; and you will have no power to stand before your enemies. You will perish among the nations; the land of your enemies will consume you. Those of you who are left will rot away because of their wickedness in the lands of your enemies; also because of the wickedness of their forefathers they will rot away like them.
Some Good News: We did have a Jubilee Year
Trump Campaign Train & Return to Common-Law Land Jurisdiction
Leviticus 25:8-10 Sept 23, 2015 - Oct 11, 2016
You are also to count off seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven Sabbaths of years, namely, forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the ram’s horn everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month ... on the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout your land [Trump Train]. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim freedom [for the slaves] throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee (year of remission) for you, and each of you shall return to his own [ancestral] property [that was sold to another because of poverty], and each of you shall return to his family [from whom he was separated by bondage] [exodus from commercial sea jurisdiction and return to common law land jurisdiction].
Leviticus 26 helps us understand what is happening in America, and when, and why
The Blessing and Cursing Chapter of Leviticus 26 is absolutely key for understanding how and why God is bringing judgment on America, and the solution. After pondering 9/11 and its consequences, and wondering what is going to happen next and when, I’m ready to suggest the schedule outlined in the chart above. Let me say that it could be wrong, and time will tell, and if we repent as a nation, God may lift the sanctions, and I am more than willing to look like a fool if He does. But there is too much water under the bridge and the stakes are too high to just sit around and speculate anymore. The time is very short.
9/11/2001 kicked off a thirty-five year series of events that, unless we as a nation repent, will result in annihilation, very likely nuclear, and then exile and captivity for the survivors. Leviticus 26 is like God's eviction notice to America. We have had this schedule sitting right in front of us for well over three millennia, and we have no excuse to be ignorant of what He is doing. America is under severe judgment.
God is emphasizing the 2nd and 4th Commandments
The specific sins that God focuses on in this scenario are the 2nd and 4th Commandments. God is not only upset about the violation of the weekly Sabbath (Exodus 31), but also the Annual Sabbaths (Leviticus 23), the Land Sabbath every seven years, and the Jubilee every forty-nine years (Leviticus 25)! Keeping the weekly Sabbath is the key to coming into alignment with God’s will, and in so doing learning about and observing the rest of the Commandments. The overlooked 2nd Commandment -- to not worship idols or images -- is of particular concern because we are up to our eyeballs in images: TV, movies, Internet, print media, smartphones! Do you get the picture?
The Good News here is that Jesus Christ, who is the Eternal Creator of the Old Testament, offers forgiveness of our past sins and eternal salvation to each individual. And he even offers relief from these curses on our nation if we would repent.
Some of you may be familiar the concepts underlying the above schedule. But if this is new territory for you, let's briefly touch on some of these concepts.
America is the most prominent end-time descendant of Ancient Israel
The scriptures in Leviticus 26 apply to America because we were founded by descendants of the tribe of Manasseh, son of Joseph, son of Israel. Israel adopted Joseph’s two sons Ephraim (British Empire) and Manasseh (USA) and placed his name on them (Genesis 48). Many of the Old Testament prophecies about Israel apply directly to America and the British Empire, because we are the most prominent of the Israelitish nations. The Jewish people and the modern nation of Israel in the Middle East are more often referred to in the Old Testament as Judah. One of the leading experts on this subject is Steven M. Collins. To get properly oriented, check out his article The United States of America in Biblical Prophecy.
God’s seven-year cycle ends with the Land Sabbath
This is so obvious that it is “hidden in plain sight.” In Leviticus 25, immediately preceding the Blessing and Cursing chapter of Leviticus 26, God reveals the Land Sabbath, wherein every seventh year we are commanded to let our agricultural land lie fallow (Lev. 25:1-7), and forgive debts (Deut. 15:1-6). Do you see any banks forgiving debts every seven years? Debt forgiveness would go a long way in solving our economic problems. Incidentally, God also prohibits usury -- charging interest -- to fellow Israelites. Please visit my article, Scriptural Instructions for an Economic Reboot/Reset: Debt Release, Jubilees, No Usury.
After seven Land Sabbaths is an additional Land Sabbath called the Jubilee. It is because of their failure to observe the Land Sabbaths that the ancient nation of Judah went into captivity for seventy years. They owed the land seventy years of rest as they had failed to observe the Land Sabbath and the Jubilee for evidently about four centuries. The book of Ezekiel indicates that it may have been 430 years of neglect. Incidentally, Jamestown, Virginia was settled for seven years beginning in 1607, and the Mayflower landed at Cape Cod in 1620, roughly four centuries ago.
Notice that God’s retribution to Israel comes in seven-year cycles, or “weeks of years.” God is testing us to see if we are going to observe the Land Sabbath! If not, the next wave lasts for “seven times.” A “time” can be equivalent to one year in Scripture. But “seven times” can also be interpreted to mean “a seven-fold increase in intensity”! That is a frightening proposition. Also, just because one seven-year cycle of curses is complete, does not mean that those curses are going to be lifted. They may continue on into the next cycle and intensify seven-fold! Do you see why God says that we should fear Him?
How do we know exactly in what years the Land Sabbath and the Jubilee occur?
That’s an excellent question, and I can only say that I have built my perspective on circumstantial evidence, then confirmed it with Scriptural evidence. But the ultimate proof is confirmed by the date of Jesus Christ's crucifixion. First of all, there are many Jewish scholars who confirm my dates for the Sabbatical or “Shemita” years. I believe that the last one started on Tishri 1, the Feast of Trumpets, 2014, and ended in 2015. The next year was a Jubilee which began on Tishri 10, The Day of Atonement, 2015 and ended in 2016.
Leviticus 25 is very clear that the Jubilee occurs every 49 -- and not 50 -- years. It is only fifty years if you count inclusively. The circumstantial evidence is that the modern Middle Eastern nation of Israel (Judah) regained significant amounts of territory during the two previous Jubilees. During the Jubilee which ran from 1966-1967, Israel doubled in size as a result of the Six-Day War in June 1967. 49 years before that, 1917-1918, Israel transitioned from Turkish to British control when General Allenby marched into Jerusalem in November 1917.
If we assume that Jesus was crucified in 31 AD, and apply Daniel’s prophecy that the Messiah would be "cut off ... in the midst of the week,” then we can prove what years the surrounding Land Sabbaths and Jubilees were. The math is simple. We can calculate the 31 AD date from Daniel 9:25: “ … from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks.” If we assume that Cyrus gave the command to rebuild the Temple in 457 BC, we just add 69 weeks of years, which is 483 years, which would bring us to 27 AD. Jesus began his ministry during the Fall Festival season, when he would have turned 30 years old. His ministry lasted for three and one-half years, and so he would have been sacrificed on the Passover of 31 AD.
The calculation of the Land Sabbaths and the Jubilees is based on Daniel 9:26-27: “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself … and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease.” Again, assuming that both these passages are referring to the Messiah, He would be sacrificed in the middle of the week. We know that He was sacrificed the afternoon of the Passover, Nisan 14, and that three days later, He was resurrected on the afternoon of the weekly Sabbath. Therefore the Passover fell on a Wednesday, the middle day of the week, that year.
But the context of this prophecy involves both “weeks of years” and “weeks of weeks of years” as well! So if the year was 31 AD, then the surrounding Land Sabbaths began on Tishri 1, 26 AD, and Tishri 1, 33 AD. And if expand out, we can calculate that the surrounding Jubilees began on Tishri 10, 6 AD, and Tishri 10, 55 AD. If we jump ahead 40 Jubilees, we end up at Tishri 10, 2015. So Jesus was not only sacrificed in the middle of the week, but also in the middle of a “week of years,” and a “week of weeks of years.” God is very thorough.
There are many other indicators, including the dramatic Blood Moon Tetrad of 2014-2015, that point to these dates. You can check out the following page for more consideration: Events of the Seventh Shemitah Year. For two excellent studies on the importance of the Shemita and how it regulates our relationship with the land, read “Walk With Me”: What Do the Curses in Leviticus 26 Mean for Us Today?, and Shmita: The Purpose of Sinai by Rabbi David Seidenberg.
This is the bottom line. We have been in an ongoing national emergency since 9/11, and we need to place a 911 call to the Creator and get this issue straightened out like, yesterday!
