They’re saying we can expect “something big,” a financial meltdown, social chaos, perhaps even the return of Christ—and the keep saying “September 2015”! They sound very persuasive, and even Christians with sound doctrine are asking me if there’s anything to it. Since there is so much alarm and confusion (and so little time!), I have decided to put together this free report on the subject in collaboration with some well-informed friends of American Vision. Settle the issue for yourself, your family, and your friends with our FREE report today.
From the Foreword:
There is currently an explosion of interest in the Old Testament religious law of “Shemitah” thanks to books like Jonathan Cahn’s The Harbinger. This wildly popular book makes startling claims about catastrophic judgments and financial chaos allegedly backed by convincing historical evidences. Coupled with the alleged coincidence of the Jewish Shemitah years as well as the alleged “Blood Moon” phenomena which have also recently been hyped, this message has unnecessarily confused and alarmed even many level-headed Christians. In fact, with the inclusion of historical evidences, even non-religious forecasters are joining the prediction circuit, resulting in the shock and alarm of many in the secular world as well, especially the financial industry.
The excellent paper which follows—and which I am proud to bring to you from a friend of mine—addresses the “Shemitah” and “Blood Moon” issue specifically from historical, astronomical, and financial perspectives. While I let the main paper do most of the discussion for itself, in the brief Foreword I make a few important observations on the religious side of the equation, as well as how this phenomenon has also recently been secularized and leveraged primarily, it appears, for personal financial gain. It is my concern to prevent Christians and many in the young libertarian audience as well from being duped into sales pitches with fears built on religious fantasy.
It is my conclusion that The Harbinger, the Blood Moons materials, and the particular use they make of the Shemitah are unfortunately very misleading, although The Harbinger in particular is presented in an engaging “mystery” format very similar to The DaVinci Code. Now that I think of it, the Harbinger is written in the same literary genre—fiction. As to accuracy in regard to Christianity, however, the two deserve the same assessment.
