1945 was the end of WWII. Consider the Shemitah, the Tetrad, and 2015.

I945 was the year of the end of WWII. The killing of Jews of Israel had come to a halt. 1945 was also the year of the Shemitah. So, what’s that? Seven year cycles terminate in a year known as the Shemitah, or the year of “release” in the Sabbatical 7 year cycle. What does that mean? The Shemitah year waives all outstanding debts between Jewish debtors and creditors. Seven  7 year periods in a row, or 49 years leads us to the 50th year, or the year of Jubilee. What is the year of Jubilee? The year of Jubilee deals largely with land, property, and property rights. According to the Bible in Leviticus 25:8-13, slaves and prisoners would be freed, debts would be forgiven, and the mercies of God would be particularly manifest. (Wikipedia).

So where am I going with this? The Jubilee year is a year of correction and restoration. Consider the end of WWII and the Jews of what is now the nation of Israel. In 1948 they proclaimed the nation of Israel to be restored. That was after a 2000 year break. The Tetrad followed in 1949 and 1950. It happened again in 1967 and 1968 when the Jews took back Jerusalem in the 6 day war. Consider the Tetrad. What is that? It is 4 Blood Moons that happen and have a special importance when on Jewish holidays. A lunar eclipse occurs when the earth passes between the sun and the moon. This blocks the sun’s rays from reflecting off the moon as normal. However, some of the sun’s rays curve around the earth causing the moon to appear red during a total eclipse. Because of its vivid color, a total lunar eclipse is often referred to by NASA as a Blood Red Moon. Read more »

I was recently given a new book.

I was recently given a new book, and I got to thinking about a people who had a lot of trouble in WWII.

Prior to, and during WWII Adolf Hitler thought the Aryan race to be the superior, or the master race, and the Jews to be the most inferior, as well as the cause of all Germany’s problems to include losing WWI. The extermination of 6 million of them proves his point of view.

During the period leading up to and including WWII there were some individuals who did all they could to save the lives of the Jews. I asked the internet who were some of the individuals who rescued Jews in WWII, and a long list of names come up on a site. Corrie ten Boom is one of those names. I mention this because when in church a few days ago I was given a book titled CORRIE TEN BOOM WORLD WAR II HEROINE. The book was written by a Sam Wellman, but given to me by Pastor Leslie Hale of Tarpon Springs, Florida. Corrie ten Boom had been a friend of the pastors, and back in 1982 I heard her speak in a church service in the Calvary Temple of Denver, Colorado. At that time it was Pastors Charles and Betty Blair who introduced Corrie ten Boom to the congregation.

Again I asked the internet about the meeting in Denver, and found a site by the church’s Pastor Todd Walker. It tells us in past: “The Ten Boom family were devoted Christians who hid Jews from the Nazis during World War II. Corrie became a ringleader in the under-ground. Through their activities, the ten Boom family and their many friends saved the lives of an estimated 800 Jews.”

“February 28, 1944, the family was betrayed. The Gestapo raided their home. Casper, Corrie, Betsie, and their brother William were all arrested, but four Jews and two members of the Dutch under-ground, hidden behind a false wall in Corrie’s bedroom, were never found. Casper (84 years old) died after only 10 days in Scheveningen Prison. When Casper was asked if he knew he could die for helping Jews, he replied, “It would be an honor to give my life for God’s ancient people.” Read more »
