Today in America we currently have the United Nations General 71st Assembly going on in NYC. It started on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and will finish Tuesday, September 20, 2016. It should be noted we also currently have Bombings or should I say things that are "exploding and blowing out windows" going on in NYC and NJ but some leaders can't seem to utter the word bomb! It also should be noted President Obama spoke at the United Nations for the last time during his presidency at the United General Assembly.
Over the past few months our nation had headlines such as LGBTQ, Oppression Concerns, Racism, Old Glory National Anthem, Bombing Attacks in our Cities, & BDS/Israel.
I've noticed related consequences America has experienced in her past that seem to mirror issues we face today.
- The Vietnam War occurred on the heels of a sexual revolution.
- The 911 Attacks 2001 was a day when terrorists organizations were successful attacking the two greatest symbols of America, wealth and power.
- Hurricane Katrina occurred August 23, 2005. It started when the United States FORCED Israel to get out of the Gaza Strip August 15 to 22, 2005, Katrina formed suddenly in the Gulf of Mexico on the very last day of the Gaza withdrawal which the U.S. ordered bulldozers destroying the Jewish homes in the Gaza Strip.
- Tuesday September 16, 2008 Israel Prime Minister Olmert essentially agreed to forgo sovereignty of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Judaism’s holiest site, and proposed that in the framework of a peace agreement, the area containing the religious sites in Jerusalem would be managed by a special committee consisting of representatives from five nations: Saudia Arabia, Jordan, Palestine, the United States and Israel.
- To read how this story ended click here......in the end no peace deal was signed between Israel and the Palestinians despite Olmert’s far-reaching offer. Stock Market Crash September 29, 2008 occurred on the eve of Rosh Hashanah and the market fell 777 points. Those who study the Bible know that 777 is a symbol of God. It was as if God signed the crash. I am so glad my husband saw the market crash coming and took all our money out of the market many months before it happened!

What does any of this mean for America's future? The only thing we do know is keep your eyes & ears on the Obama Administration and what Washington is doing towards Israel in the next few weeks. We have patterns we can look back on such as Hurricanes and Stock Market Crashes all related to consequences of our government putting pressure on Israel.
- Teaching regarding The Biblical Feast "appointed times" can be found in Leviticus 23. The Feast which are ordained by God are yearly cycles of appointments or Mo'adims that every Christian should be aware of and take the time to "meet" with God in this very special way.
- Each of the Feasts teaches a different aspect of the nature of God and His plan for the world. Through these appointments or mo’adim we see prophetic glimpses of a later redemption that would come through the Messiah during His earthly ministry and upon His return.
- A wonderful ministry that my husband & I have been partners with for years is called Jewish Voice Ministries. Jewish Voice is a wonderful ministry and has been doing amazing medical missions in extremely remote places all over the world. I remember what a blessing it was for Ken & I the first time we met Johnathan Bernis at a conference in Florida. We have always learn so much from his biblical teachings and we have set a goal to serve on one of his foreign medical mission projects to impoverished Jewish communities in Africa and India.
Since The Biblical Feast are right around the corner it would be profitable to study the Fall Feast and take time to evaluate your own personal spiritual health as it relates to America's spiritual crises.
