The Entanglements, Attachments, and Bondages of American Politics

I think many people who hear about the Shemitah view it with much fear. But never forget God is good, kind, and gentle and He only increases the hardship on people when they refuse to acknowledge Him. (Tweet that!) Then He turns up the pressure in order to get their attention and bring them to Himself, which is a further manifestation of His goodness, kindness, and gentleness. (Tweet that!)

Another manifestation of a Shemitah judgment in America author Jonathan Cahn gives in his book, The Mystery of the Shemitah (page 241) is this:
"The judgment will release entanglements, attachments, and bondages within the nation and among the nations."

How might this look in America? The first thing that comes to my mind is our Politics.

In American, politics have become so convoluted they can no longer function. Over the years, some politicians have become so entrench that we will never be able to get them removed. Part of this includes the favors owed to them and the favors they owe. One example is the votes they have promised to give or get on certain issues. This why we can get nothing good done. (Tweet that!)

Many politicians, (dare I say most?) no longer vote for what is good for America or what is best for their constituents. Rather they vote on who owes who favors. It's the trading of "political capital" meaning political power.

What if all this owing and paying was wiped away?  Would this not be a good thing?

Don't misunderstand. I'm not saying it wouldn't be painful for our country. But to wipe clean entanglements, attachments, and bondages within nations would give us a chance to start fresh. And hopefully not make the same mistakes of "borrowing" and "owing" political power. (Tweet that!)

Related to that, at least in my mind, author Jonathan Cahn also notes on page 242 that a Shemitah judgment would...
"…wipe away structure of culture, of systems, of civilization."

I think of our structure of political culture, our political system, and it seems to be to be so entrenched in corruption now that, even though we have good people trying to make inroads, perhaps nothing will be able to make an impact soon enough unless it is wiped clean. (Tweet that!)

What if… God created a hard reset? What if it was time to start over? (Tweet that!)
