New York City Beware!

Bookmark and Share

There's good reason to take the recent threats of Islamic terrorism against New York City very seriously IMHO.

ISIS plotting ‘imminent’ attacks on subways in US, Paris: Iraq’s PM

I believe there might have been an important reason for the following that traces back to the autumn 2001 Anthrax mailings:

New York City Conducts Largest Ever Surprise Bioterror Response Drill

As highlighted in the PBS Frontline episode, The Anthrax Files, the odds are the FBI never really caught the 2001 Anthrax mailer. The true culprit could still be at large. If so, let's all hope and pray he isn't connected to ISIS!

The NYPD and FBI might be on top of this, but, if past performance is a reliable indicator, then...

UPDATE: I just learned that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is scheduled to speak at the U.N. tomorrow.

Anyone living or working in New York City should have a two-week supply of a broad-spectrum antibiotic on-hand IMHO. NYC authorities should have seen to this years ago, but I guess New Yorkers prefer not to think in these terms.

At the least, might I suggest New Yorkers avoid the subway system Monday and maybe next week altogether if they can at all do so?

I pray to my heavenly Father that my concern is unwarranted, and I apologize if so. Better safe than sorry. Beware New York City...

Elul 29 & The End Of The Age

Bookmark and Share

Tomorrow is Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, the last day of the Jewish year 5774.  Starting Thursday (actually at sunset tomorrow), a new Sabbatical year, the Jewish "Shemitah", will begin.  Is this the 'End of the Age'?


Pastor Jonathan Cahn, a messianic Jewish Rabbi who leads Hope of the World ministries in New Jersey, just released a new book, The Mystery of the Shemitah, which focuses on the historical relationships between the Jewish "Shemitah", the Sabbatical year of rest that recurs every seven years on the Hebrew calendar, and economic and geopolitical crises.

Of particular note were the last two Shemitahs from September 30, 2000 to September 17, 2001 and from September 13, 2007 to September 29, 2008 (the Hebrew calendar year is based upon a lunar year).  Both of these periods saw substantial reversals in the stock market and economy that were capped by major crashes on the very last day of the Jewish year, Elul 29.

Elul 29 has special significance to Jewish believers in the Sabbatical year:
At the end of seven years you will make a release. And this is the manner of the release: to release the hand of every creditor from what he lent his friend; he shall not exact from his friend or his brother, because the time of the release for the Lord has arrived. (Deuteronomy 15:1–2)
Personal debts are considered forgiven at sunset on the 29th of Elul. Since this aspect of shmita is not dependent on the land, it applies to Jews both in Israel and elsewhere. (Wiki)
As noted in my September 2012 blog on the topic:
....there is an intriguing phenomenon surrounding the date of Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar.  As Rabbi Cahn discovered and spelled out in his book, The Harbinger, on this last day on the Jewish calendar in the last two Sabbatical Years, 2001 and 2008 (Sabbatical Years occur every seven years under Jewish tradition), two of the three largest point drops in the DJIA in stock market history occurred: 

The plunge of just over 7 percent or nearly 700 points on 9/17/01, or 29 Elul 5761 on the Hebrew calendar, occurred in response to the 9/11 attacks.  The drop of 777.7 points or 7 percent on 9/29/08, or 29 Elul 5768 on the Hebrew calendar, took place in reaction to the U.S. Congress failing to approve the first vote for a Wall Street bailout during the financial crisis that year. 
As pointed out in the section of my April (2012) blog dubbed, "The Mystery Of The Shmita & The Septennial Sabbatical Cycle", it's an incredible coincidence that two of the three largest point drops in the Dow struck on the last day of the seven-year Jewish Sabbatical cycle.  In fact, statistically the odds of this occurring are more than a million to one. 
So maybe God's trying to make a point with us.  What point could that be?
To be continued...

Jonathan Cahn, The Coming Shemitah Year & God's Judgment

Bookmark and Share

This week will see the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah and the beginning of a new "Shemitah" year. Will this be the year of God's Judgment of this world? There's compelling reason to believe so.
