Israel / Middle East, Prophetic Portents

Poured Out

The Curse

Daniel 9:11 – “Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him.”

The word translated curse, is the Hebrew word, alah (אָלָה H423) which means: to put under a curse, either from God or from men. In English this word would be spelled “Allah”. In other words, scripture tells us that Allah is going to be poured out upon all Israel. All Israel, Biblically speaking, is both the natural and wild olive branches combined, or both Jew and Gentile together!

Today we are seeing this curse poured out upon all nations, especially the European nations which for many years have been predominantly settled by those who profess faith in Yeshua. Even Syria, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern nations have fallen to this curse. Yahweh’s prophecies are being literally fulfilled before our very eyes.

The Ascension
Isaiah 14:13-14 – “But you said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High’.”

The word translated ascend, is the Hebrew word, alah, (עָלָה H5927) which means: to ascend, to mount, to go up over, or to extend one’s boundary. That Islam, under the direct influence of Satan (Allah), is currently putting forth extreme efforts to become the one-world religion, political ruler (caliphate), and moral code (Sharia Law), should not be surprising. Today we are seeing this ascension poured out upon all nations, especially the European nations as well as in several Middle Eastern nations. Even Western nations are seeing an influx of peoples who are bringing Islam (or Allah) with them and who refuse to assimilate into the nation’s prevailing culture. Yahweh’s prophecies are being literally fulfilled before our very eyes.

The Shemitah

Leviticus 25:4 – “But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.”

In his research, Jonathan Cahn has found patterns throughout the history of America and the world that line up with the Shemitah. Cahn reveals the shocking discovery that the five great economic crashes of the last 40 years – 1973, 1980, 1987, 2001 and 2008 – have all occurred in Shemitah years – those God set apart as Sabbath years.

After the last year of Shemitah in 2008, between 2009 and 2015 the stock markets continued to rise. In the spring of the Shemitah cycle, 2015, the markets reversed and began a long term descent for the rest of the Shemitah year. The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 started to collapse in May, and at the peak in mid summer, the NASDAQ and the Russell 2000 Index collapsed. Below are some of the statistics about this latest Shemitah year for you consideration:

How Severe Were The Collapses?
As the end of the Shemitah year approached its final phase, the stock market and its descent grew increasingly and dramatically volatile. Black Monday would trigger the collapse of stock markets throughout the world.

  • 20% Of The Worst Stock Market Crashes Occurred In 2015
  • The German Market Lost 25%
  • The Chinese Market Lost 43%
  • The Baltic Dry Index Lost 80% (2000 Pts To 400pts)
  • The Indian Market Lost 4,000 Points
  • The Brazilian Market Lost 12,000 Points
  • The American Market Lost Two Trillion Dollars
  • The World Markets Lost A Combined Eleven Trillion Dollars
  • Yahweh’s prophecies are being literally fulfilled before our very eyes.

The Rise and Fall of Nations
The collapse of China’s financial realm constituted one of the greatest long-term stock market crashes in history and, by itself, would make 2015 one of the most significant of Shemitahs. The amount wiped out from the Shanghai Exchange, in the space of just a few months was over 40 percent. However, one major effect of this year’s Shemitah was the transfer of economic superiority from west to east:

  • United States Economic Superiority Began In 1871, When The British Superiority Fell.
  • In 2015, The US Economic Superiority Transferred To China, which itself collapsed on the Day of Nullification, Elul 29, 2015.
  • Yahweh’s prophecies are being literally fulfilled before our very eyes.

Many were expecting a major collapse of world economies on the first day of the Shemitah year, but history has shown a year long cycle of economic reversals.   Once again, this mysterious phenomenon has been recorded, and once again, being quite economically illiterate and challenged, I am unable to wrap my brain around it! Perhaps you feel the same, or perhaps this all makes sense to you.

Yahweh, who declares the end from the beginning, has given us all of the hints we need to understand our current season! And, because we live today, all of those “hidden” scriptures of Genesis, Isaiah, and Daniel are now becoming understandable, as was prophesied. Yahweh’s prophecies are being literally fulfilled before our very eyes.

Final Thought
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew Prophets. Today we are one day closer to the return of Yeshua than we were yesterday and tomorrow we will be even one day closer. For almost two thousand years the Jews would proclaim “Next year in Jerusalem!” I now proclaim “Next Yom Teruah in the clouds!” Time is short – Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
