I recently watched A video on YouTube from Mark Biltz When Will the Tribulation Begin? Where are we on the BIBLICAL calendar? It is extremely informative and a MUST watch. I will try to sum up what he has taught in the video on the Shemitah year and cycles. I still recommend that you watch it, because I cannot go into as much detail as he did in this blog.
The Shemitah year is a Sabbath year, every 7th year is a Shemitah or Sabbath year where God commanded the Israelite’s to rest the land. Every 7 years is a Shemitah cycle. God told Israel that the land that they were to inherit needed to rest every 7 years because it was holy.
I don’t know how many of my readers have heard about the Temple Institute in Israel. The Temple Institute is an organization that is working on building the 3rd Temple. They have already made the vessels and instruments that will go inside the Temple, they have built the stone alter for sacrifices and are actually practicing sacrifices for the time when the Temple is built. What is extremely exciting is they have at least 4 (as of this moment of writing) candidates of RED HEIFERS!!!!
