Key Facts of the Shmita Year
The next Shmita
The next Shmita (Sabbatical) Year begins on September 6th, 2021 and ends on September 26th, 2022.
A Shabbat of years
A Shmita Year happens every seventh year. It is a Shabbat of years instead of a Shabbat of days.
Not to plant on the 7th year
Elohim commanded Israel not to plant or sew their harvest on the 7th year in order for the land to rest, and anything that grew on its own was for the animals to eat and anyone in need of food to pick as they pleased. (Leviticus 25:1-5)
A special blessing on the 6th year
In order for the Israelites not go hungry on the Shmita Year God gave a special blessing on the 6th year. “I will order My [special] blessing for you in the sixth year, so that it will produce [sufficient] crops for three years. When you are sowing the eighth year, you can still eat old things from the crops, eating the old until the ninth year when its crop comes in.” (Leviticus 25:21-22)
All debts were forgiven on the Shmita year (Deuteronomy 15:1-11).
The penalty for not allowing the land to rest was severe as Israel experienced in the exile to Babylon. Adonai promised to sovereignly make the land rest by taking Israel out of it. (Leviticus 26:34-35, 1 Chronicles 26:21).
Since 1973, a Shmita Year, there has been a market crash and/or recession that has effected the globe every Sabbatical year since.
We should expect more natural Disasters this Shmita year as Adonai is forcing the land of the nations to rest.
We should also expect a major Economic Reset for the Shmita Year. A global reset or crash constitutes a huge cancelation of debt worldwide as it goes unpaid, is defaulted on, and is then restructured wiping billions and trillions of wealth from balance sheets.
Israel’s 10th Shmita Year
This will be Israel’s 10th Shmita Year since it’s founding in 1948.
Even if you do not own land, The Shmita Year is something that all people, not just Jews should keep. Ask the Holy Spirit what you should abstain from doing this year, or how much you should work, and in what way He would have you personally rest. Remember, he gives a triple blessing once you have decided you will abide by the Shmita year.
Be prepared for what is coming in both the natural and the Spirit this Shmita year. If you know something is coming, take precautions as best as you can to not only weather the storm, but to take advantage of the opportunities that will come.
Pay off your debts
Now is the time to pay off your debts as much as possible, but also if you are a lender to consider forgiving others of debts as well.
Spread the word
If you are prepared for what is coming, spread the word to your neighbors and the people you know and trust in order to have a community that supports one another in tough times, and is also able to help those in need who are unprepared.
Spread the Gospel
Just because this is a year of rest, it does not mean to rest from doing the work of God in spreading the Gospel of peace, but on the contrary it is a time when we are being called to be on the front lines of the people hit the hardest to bring hope, to bring Yeshua.
