5 of 5 stars *****
The uncanny coincidence of events in human history with a particular time according to the ancient Hebrew calendar is The Mystery of the Shemitah. Jonathan Cahn's Harbinger compliments this follow-up book of a 3,000-year-old instruction to the ancient Hebrews by God. Both books describe the wake-up calls and the consequences of disobedience to this instruction. The history is there, in the Bible, and the present day events are amazingly similar to that history in events, symbols, and timing.
The most telling disobedient feature that leads to judgment over blessing is the killing of innocent children. The Jews kill their children when they abandon God for the false gods of their neighbors and abortion is responsible for many more deaths of the innocent, unborn children, today.
This book drives home the point that a society without God is a doomed society led by manipulative elitists who strive to better their lives through the hard work and fortune of others. The clear message is that everything belongs to God. The Shemitah is meant to eventually forgive all debt while allowing the poor to partake in the benefits of the land that feeds and nourishes. Unfortunately, this does not occur. The flaws of mankind reveal God's judgment in the times described in this profound work by Jonathan Cahn.
