The Importance to America of the Coming Shemitah Falling on a Sunday - Part 1

The Shemitah 2015 falls on
a Sunday: September 13th.
It has not escaped my notice that this coming Shemitah falls on Sunday. This surprised me for at least three reasons. But then it also got me thinking: Could this next Shemitah falling on a Sunday hold special importance for America? (Tweet that!)

Reason #1: The American Stock Market is not open on Sunday

When I looked at the calendar and saw that the Shemitah coming this next September falls on a Sunday, it surprised me because the American Stock Market is not open on Sunday. So how could another stock market crash occur like the past two Shemitahs?

Would this fact of the Shemitah falling on Sunday when the stock market is closed prevent another stock market crash on the Shemitah? (Tweet that!)

That doesn't seem likely because if judgment from God is coming, then nothing will stop it … except for repentance and turning back to God. (Tweet that!)

Repentance means the combined actions of stopping doing something that is wrong and also turning and going a different direction that is a right way to go. (Tweet that!) If America repents and turns back to God, the coming judgment can still be averted. (Tweet that!)

What would it take for America to "repent"? What would that look like? It would take a national repentance indicated by a turn of direction that is turning back to God directed by the leadership of this nation, meaning the political leaders.

Many Americans are looking forward to the next presidential election in 2016. The Shemitah, however, comes in September of 2015 – more than a year before the next presidential election. (Tweet that!)

So even the Shemitah falling on a Sunday when the stock market is closed will not and cannot avert a judgment from God if that is coming.
