“I have ministered that it is wise to be aware of the signs and seasons of the times, and that though such things can take place on biblically relevant times or dates, but again,
that nothing has to happen on any particular date, whether within the parameters of the Shemitah or in its wake,
and that our focus must be not dates but God and getting right with Him.
At the same time, we remain in a dangerous period – and one of the reasons I’ve always cautioned regarding dates is that I never wanted such focus to obscure or minimize the larger picture:
that regardless of what does or does not happen on a particular date, America is racing toward judgment.”
— Rabbi Jonathan Cahn (2015)
