In my April blog, Jonathan Cahn: The Harbinger, I include a section dubbed "THE MYSTERY OF THE SHMITA & THE SEPTENNIAL SABBATICAL CYCLE" in which I identify what may be a 7-year cycle that has become more clearly defined in recent decades:
I believe this cycle is biblical in significance and has to do with underlying "manic-depressive" waves between sin and sin's consequences in human history described in my 2009 thesis. In this regard, the hurricanes afflicting New Orleans in recent years seems to be a profound case in point of this historical pattern.
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. [Jude 1:7]
Isaac is the third hurricane to strike New Orleans over the past decade. Katrina struck in 2005, Gustav hit in 2008 and now this storm. All three storms have occurred in the days prior to Labor Day. Notably, this is when the homosexual "Southern Decadence" festival occurs in New Orleans each year:
The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. [Nahum 1:3]
In 2005, the Southern Decadence festival was cancelled by Hurricane Katrina. Note that the name Katrina means "purity".
In 2008, the Southern Decadence celebration was cut short by Hurricance Gustav. Note that the name Gustav means 'Staff of God'.
Now, in 2012, the Southern Decadence festivities are threatened by Hurricane Isaac, a name that means "he laughs":
Repent at my rebuke!
Then I will pour out my thoughts to you,
I will make known to you my teachings.
But since you refuse to listen when I call
and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand,
since you disregard all my advice
and do not accept my rebuke,
I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you;
I will mock when calamity overtakes you—
when calamity overtakes you like a storm,
when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,
when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
Isaac, Abraham's only begotten son, was almost sacrificed by his father at God's command....a story which is considered a parallel to how God sacrificed His Son Jesus on the Cross 2000 years ago to atone for man's sins.
What this all means I can't say for certain, but I wouldn't doubt that God is authoring this story we participate in. I suggest we cooperate accordingly.
“America has been moving away from God,” said Alabama Sen. Hank Erwin, R-Montevallo. “The Lord is sending appeals to us. As harsh as it may sound, those hurricanes do say that God is real, and we have to realize sin has consequences.” [From - WND: EERIE BIBLE COINCIDENCE FOR HURRICANE ISAAC?]
