The French Connection

The day of the Shemitah [1] came and went. Skeptics feel justified in their skepticism, that life goes on just as it did before. Or in Bible language "For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation." 2 Peter 3:4 Maybe one needs to look in the right place for events associated with the Shemitah, which according to Jonathan Cahn was Sept 13, 2015. While the focus of the Shemitah warnings were given to America, perhaps we should also look at Israel.

Al Aqsa Mosque - ITV

ITV REPORT 13 September 2015 at 9:12am [2]

Violence breaks out at al-Aqsa mosque as Israeli forces storm building in search of Palestinian suspects

I have to admit that's not the shaking I expected, in fact Israeli/Palestine conflicts don't seem unusual. What happened next? Due to the violence, a month later France proposed the UN place "international observers" on the Temple Mount - World Bulletin [3]. You can read a more cynical take on France's proposal in this article entitled "This Time Peacekeepers Won’t Rape Anyone, We Promise" - PreOccupied Territory [4]. The proposal did not pass the UN. And Israel opposed it. United With Israel [5] characterized the proposal with the headline "France stabs Israel in the back". It appears France is assuming Israel is the guilty party.

This isn't the first move France has taken against Israel at the UN. In Dec 2014, France supported establishing "the State of Palestine" and requiring Israel to return land captured in the 1967 war - RT News [6]. In fact the French Parliament had already recognized Palestine earlier.

On Tuesday evening, the French National Assembly came out in favor of recognition of “Palestine” as a state. The decision, one of largely symbolic value, is further compounded by the fact that in recent months Spain, Britain, Ireland and Sweden have also made similar proclamations, indicative of the growing international polarization over the conflict. Dec 3, 2014 - United With Israel [7]

And the Palestinians? Their goal is to destroy Israel. Here is what Mahmoud Abbas said on Sept 16, 2015, three days after violence erupted on the day of the Shemitah.

The Al Aqsa mosque is ours and they (Jews) have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to do so. We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every martyr will reach paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. MEMRI TV [8]
 In short, Allah will bless you for your violence (against Israel). And this is no surprise, remember that the HAMAS charter really does call for the destruction of Israel - Hamas in the Bible [9].

As You Do To Israel

Israel's West Bank
Israel has been dealing with hostile neighbors from its second beginning in 1948. Acts of terrorism and threats of terrorism are ever present dangers for them. But there is a reciprocity effect also in play. Way back before Jews or Palestinians existed, God said to Abraham, "And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed." Gen 12:3. Those who try to harm Israel will themselves be harmed, probably in like manner. Those who tried to take land from Israel lost theirs instead, twice. Here is how one commentor put it.

Try to destroy Israel, you will be destroyed. Try to divide Jerusalem, you will be cut to pieces. Curse Israel, you will be cursed. Reject Israel, you will be rejected. God made a promise to Israel, this World combined are too weak and powerless to change that. Russel Lang - Times of Israel [10]

The Eiffel Tower has gone dark following 
the attack on the City of Light. 

France too has been dealing with terrorist incidents, most infamous are the Charlie Hebdo and Kosher Market [11] killings Jan 7, 2015, and the November 13 2015 Paris [12] attacks. Smaller terror attacks are recorded at Wikipedia [13]. Note the pattern that one month after France recognizes the "State of Palestine" is the Charlie Hebdo attack. One month after proposing UN peacekeepers on the Temple Mount is the November Paris attack (and that was a response to the Day of Shemitah violence in Jerusalem). Curse Israel, and be cursed yourself.

Where is the terror coming from?

Historically, the Assyrians are the fathers of terror. According to The Ancient History Encyclopedia  [14]

"By these methods of siege and horror, technology and terror, the Assyrians became the unrivalled masters of the Near East for five centuries". 

Here's how Jonathan Cahn described them.
The Assyrians made terror into a science. They systematized it, perfected it, and employed it as no other people or kingdom had ever done before. They burned cities to the ground, mutilated their prisoners, flayed alive those who rebelled against them, and nailed their skins to the wall for public display. The Assyrians were the masters of terror.” The Harbinger [15]

While there is some disagreement on this point, but the consensus is that the descendants of ancient Assyria live in Iraq and Syria today. ISIS means Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Ancient Assyria terrorized ancient Israel and Judah, their descendants are doing the same to Israel, France, the USA, Germany, Sweden, and more today. Ancient Assyria used public beheadings to terrorize, ISIS uses the internet to publicize their beheadings.

The French Connection

Syrian Refugees in Europe CNN
It may sound alarmist to link two terrorist attacks in France to the actions of France towards Israel, after all it's not much of a pattern. However, William Koenig [16] in his book "Eye To Eye, Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel" [17] documented 89 events and catastrophes in the United States between 1991 and 2005. These are natural disasters like floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes; and unnatural disasters like terror attacks, downed airplanes, anthrax scares. The catastrophes have not stopped since the book was published, and seem to have intensified since the day of the Shemitah. Every one of the events and catastrophes in Koenig's book can be tied to a US action against Israel, most notably pressuring Israel to trade "land for peace".

Koenig documented US disasters only, but consider terror attacks in London, Madrid, and now Paris. Could they be the direct result of siding against Israel, pressuring Israel to trade land for peace? Cahn describes the terror as a return of the second harbinger. You can watch his analysis here - Shocking France and Harbinger Connections [18]. If the concern over terror attacks seem exaggerated, consider that there have been 27,649 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11/2001, not counting rapes. Twenty seven thousand!!! The Religion of Peace [19]

How to Heal the Land

A nation that turns its back on God, and tries to curse Israel, can only expect God to return the favor. The only answer is repentance on a national scale. Whether the nation repents or not, individuals can.

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished. Proverbs 22:3 and Proverbs 27:12
If my people, which are called by my name (Christians), shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chron 7:14
