Shemitah and the Economic Cycle

Many have come to me and talked about how closely the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) correlates with what Jonathan Cahn says about the year of Shemitah. Also, both ‘models’ indicate that there will be economic fireworks after the Summer of 2015.

Curiouser and curiouser.

So, I thought that I would add my own two-cents to this issue, and tell you what I think about this correlation. And yes, I DO admit that there is a correlation. But, it’s probably NOT the correlation that you think.

Also, please be careful. Judaism and Christianity do not mix. Consulting Talmud about such questions is wrong.

Shemitah and the Economic Cycle

Just to make everything clear, I have an absolutely profound love for the Jewish people – and even the Arab people. And, God has a profound love for the Jewish people, too. But, I do not like how many Christians have been consulting Talmud to understand the Bible.

I understand why Christians would want to do that. The Jews have spent thousands of years trying to understand the Old Testament, just as we have. And, the Jews are just so… well …smart about the whole thing. And, when you have a love for the Jewish people, you tend to identify with them.

Judaism Is Anti Jesus Christ

But, as much as I love the Jewish people, I also know that they have rejected Christ. And, they have spent the last almost-two thousand years reinforcing that point. Even the Jewish people have understood this.

Several years ago, when I was living in Israel, I heard one Jewish theologian remark:

95% of Judaism is the statement, “we are not Christian”

And, I completely understand that. Almost two thousand years ago, Judaism and Christianity were remarkably similar. In fact, the only thing separating Judaism and Christianity was a person:

Jesus Christ

Since the rabbis were dead set against the acceptance of Jesus, they decided to emphasize elements within Judaism that would ‘protect’ their followers from becoming Christian. And, when that wasn’t enough, they added elements and concepts to keep Christianity at bay.

Then, when the Second Temple was destroyed, Judaism found itself further twisted with even more concepts and traditions. And, all of that was codified in the Talmud.

I believe that it is a sad thing to twist a religion and culture like that, but it is their right to do so. Just as it is their right to choose to suffer for eternity in the life to come.

No One Is Half-Saved

Please understand that salvation is like being pregnant. Just as there is no such thing as being ‘almost pregnant’ or ‘kinda pregnant’, there is no such thing as being ‘kinda saved’. To put it another way:

God doesn’t have nieces and nephews

God only has sons and daughters, and I hope and pray that you are counted as one.

The rule for all Christians is this:

Anyone who does not acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and God – is not saved. Period.

And, anyone who does not conform to that rule, is:


Not THE Antichrist, but little-a-antichrist. And, we were all antichrist before we were saved. To say otherwise is to demonstrate how little we know about salvation.

Anti-Zionists Are Fools

That’s why I am always mystified by the anti-Zionists who use the Jewish people’s hatred of Christ as an excuse to hate Israel. Such fools do not understand that it is a rule that those who are not Christian will hate Christ and His followers.

And yes, I believe everyone who doesn’t understand this a fool.


Because this demonstrates such a colossal level of spiritual ignorance about the most basic tenet of Christian faith, that it leads me to put a question mark over the idea of whether such a person is truly saved. And THAT is my definition of a fool. The alternative is to admit that you are colossally ignorant and uneducated about the principles of God.

God promised to save the Jewish people in Israel one day, but until then, they will be against what WE believe. And THAT is how salvation works. To believe otherwise is to label yourself a fool or an ignoramus.

Okay. I think that I’ve gotten off track a bit, so let me get to the main point:

I haven’t talked much about Shemitah because of the connection to Judaism.

But, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t something that is worth talking about. So let me do that.

Shemitah Is Spelled Wrong

By the way, the other thing that I dislike about ‘Shemitah’ is the spelling. It just rubs me wrong to see a Hebrew word misspelled like that. The proper spelling is:


And, it is pronounced like this:


But, since everyone spells the word as s-h-e-m-i-t-a-h, I will spell it like that too. But, just know that I will grumble and grind my teeth every time I do so.

Shemitah Short-Circuits The ECM

Okay, I’m getting off track, yet again.

So, how does the year of shemitah (grr!) and the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) intersect?

My answer:

I believe that observing the year of shemitah will short-circuit the ECM.

Let me explain.

Shemitah Is Not A Law Of The Universe

First of all, the year of shemitah is not a universal constant like pi, Planck’s Constant or the Cosmological Constant. The year of Shemitah is a law imposed upon us by God.

But, God did that for a reason.

Here is what Jesus said about the Sabbath:

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:Mark 2:27

The same goes for the year of shemitah. It doesn’t matter which year you start counting from, the seventh year is the year of shemitah. The Universe doesn’t revolve around a seven day or seven year rhythm.

A Year Of Shemitah Is Good For Us

It is WE who need to live according to a seven year rhythm.

To put it another way, it is good for us to rest every seventh day and every seventh year – whichever day or year that you might choose. Otherwise, we fall apart at 8.6 year intervals (i.e., the ECM).

Of course, no one has ever rested on the seventh year. Not the Jews, not anyone. Nor have we observed a seventh year for the release of debts – which is what shmita means. So, we don’t know what life would be like if we observed a year of shemitah.

But, take a moment and think about what would happen if we released everyone’s debts on the seventh year. Think about what would happen if we took a year off from work after six years. Think about what would happen if you didn’t charge interest on debts.

For one thing, you wouldn’t have any people who were ‘super rich’. It would be difficult for anyone to take advantage of anyone else. There would be no fractional reserve banking to distort an economy.

Since We Don’t Do Shemitah, We Have The ECM

What Martin Armstrong did, when he discovered the Economic Confidence Modelor ECM – was discover an 8.6 year rhythm to human nature. For whatever reason, we human beings decide to take a part of our hard work and pitch it out the window after a little more than eight and a half years. Some obviously do it more than others, and some sectors of our economy do it more than other sectors. But, that doesn’t change the fact that – as a group – we tend to destroy a large part of our productivity every three thousand, one hundred and forty one days.

Could it be that there is something inside of us that desperately needs a sabbatical, for a year, after six years of hard work?

I think so.

Just as God gave us the sabbath to rest, for our good and not His, God also gave us a sabbath year for our good. And, I believe that we – as a society – are most vulnerable to the 8.6 year cycle described in the ECM, because we do not observe the seventh year of release and rest.

So THAT is how I see the connection between the shemitah and the Economic Confidence Model.

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

  1. This you did not do, although you came close. I MUST – conscience moving me to – come to say, we are to be careful when we make the statement which you did make, that one may count from anywhere, to get to the seventh year; seventh whatever.

    This general concensus of opinion, has the world going around in circles as drunken men and women, as they are not using the Lunisolar Calendar of the Creator, to find the weekly Sabbaths (one cannot find the correct Sabbath, on a Gregorian Calendar), and so the Jews and Christians who were forced to the Julian Calendar in the 4th Century by Constantine, have remained there, when in 1582, the Julian was changed to the Pope Gregory XIII Calendar! Please remember, the Creator’s calendar is Lunisolar, the first day of that New Month is New Moon Day, THEN 6 working days; then 8th; 15th; 22nd and 29 days are weekly Sabbaths always (It’s so easy to learn), and for all believers that Yahushua Messiah is indeed the world’s Saviour, we must go BACK to the Way of the Example, Yahushua, and how He lived the Christian Life! Thank you, love you guys, and if you do not understand, pls do not just forget-abot-it! If you MUST, email me, and we shall chat talk!

  2. Brilliant. I never would have seen a connection like that. And what a world we would have, if we did things as God intended. First and foremost, to have no kings over us, but judges, divinely appointed and led!!! Unbelievable how much grief that one has caused.

    Think about it. It completely does away with the sociopathic power lust dynamic. No one has power over anyone else, but a judge, with God’s backing, will rebuke you if you do wrong. And he/she will not be taking kickbacks from the police or the private prison system.

    Can you imagine what our legal system would be like if God picked out all the judges? And threw them out if they went rogue? If someone does you wrong, you take it to a judge, and they are divinely inspired to deliver perfect justice!!!!! One hearing, one sentence. No endless appeals on technicalities- NO LAWYERS – no one getting away with lying in court. No framing, no lynching, no falsifying evidence to improve one’s conviction rate. No police brutality, getting caught by their own dashcams beating up old ladies and STILL let go with no consequences!!!
    It would be the best deterrent to crime ever if everyone knew they weren’t going to get away with lying, stealing, etc etc. God knows all, and operates through His judges. Ananias and Sapphira.

  3. Shmita is just the sabbath . The land needs to rest for 1 year out of seven to remain holy , Just as you and I need 1 day of rest. That day is the sabbath . Thats about the only part Judaism has right. I know you know it because you lived in the land. Its restated over 100 times in my KJV not some man made obscure Jewish text. Yesuha (Jesus) followed the 4th commandment and all the Feast as an example to all of us. We need to quit worshipping the sun gods that claim our spirit on Sundays and so called holy days( Dec 25 & ham eating day). Come out of Babylon my friends the Kingdom awaits . Peace

  4. I find your comment extremely shortsighted. I read your articles and find the validity in them. I also read and find validity in Messianic writers such as Johnathan Cahn, Mark Biltz, and others. Your bias does not serve you or your readers well. This old testament-new testament division shows nothing more than a lack of understanding which renders your articles to be less than complete. You can only go so far with worldly knowledge. I end up reading your articles along with those of our messianic brothers to gain insight into what is really happening and coming in the near future. The truth is, if I find no resolution in what you write and what our Messianic brothers write, my inclination is to give greater weight to them. That is not meant to be personal. I believe the Word and the events of the world will be in agreement when the truth is reached. This convergence of the Word and worldly events brings hope and peace rather than fear!

  5. Provocative ! and very interesting John …. good stuff …we need a rest, individually, and perhaps corporately as the body of Christ. And yes, I think that the ‘Shmita’ (bonus points here) definitely trumps the ECM. Now, is the anti-Zionist or the anti-Jew the fool? The two are not the same, as you yourself are anti-Talmud and anti-fractional banking….to be anti-Zionist is to be pro-Jew! And, of course, Jesus was a Jew…though no longer known after the flesh. Now, I would truly be a fool to, as you say,… to be anti-anyone…for all can find the free saving grace of God. Our ships are sailing closer to one another John; as the mandating winds of climaxing time push our theologies aside for Christian reality. I do not hate Jews more than others…I would truly love to see more of them delivered from their bondage. Don’t forget my bonus points. Yours in Christ…. Mike

    • Hi mike,

      Okay, I GRUDGINGLY give you bonus points.

      But, to be anti-Zionist is to be against what God is doing. And, THAT is very, VERY foolish.

      There is NO WAY that you can read through the prophecies of the Last Days in the Old Testament and not see Zionism all over it. God said that He would bring Israel back the the Land, and so He has. Read Ezekiel 36 and 37.

      If you are against THAT, you are a fool, and you’re gonna’ get run over. By God.

      Be careful, Mike. I don’t wanna see God’s boot prints on your forehead.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. Boy, there’s much that can be said about Christians who cling to their Jewish roots, Jews who insist on an Hebraic roots religion, feasts, festivals, days/months/years – REALLY lots and lots, and lots.

    Just a thought or two, John.

    I suspect that the structure given to mankind by Yehovah will stand in the Millennial reign – that is 6 days of work, one of a Sabbath rest. Six years of cultivation, and a seventh year of rest for the land.

    I suspect we will celebrate the Feasts of the LORD. I’m a bit uncertain on the sacrificial/ceremonial system, but Ezekiel seems to suggest we will see animal sacrifices – whether as a memorial or reminder, who can say at this point.

    THEN, once the millennium is finished, and the last enemy (death) has been finally “put away” – there will be no more “time”, and thus no further “marking” of events of significance.

    Yehovah’s calendar and method for marking time and events is important. We may not understand why in fullness at the present, but if I just hold on to what He has given us, I think it will be OK.

    Really, really, really tricky territory here, isn’t it, John?

    I consult MESSIANIC rabbis in such areas because the whole array of time related topics is a virtual mine-field. I watch-eth where I step-eth, and still run into IEDs.

    • Hi bert,

      Glad to see that you are careful.

      I too believe that there will be a natural seven day and seven year rhythm. As to the sacrifices, I doubt that there will be animal sacrifices, since it appears that we’ll go back to the pre-Flood vegetarianism. But, I could be wrong.

      We’ll see what happens. Just stay away from ANYTHING-Talmud.

      God bless you, Bert! (And, keep watchin’ out for those Biblical IEDs)

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  7. Finally, someone who understands that to be a Christian DOESN’T mean to blindly follow every Pro Jewish sentiment. Yes, the Jews will be saved when Jesus returns but UNTIL THEN, anyone, Jews included, who have rejected the gospel over the past 2,000 years will not be saved, and I am tired of people thinking it’s serving God to BLINDLY back ANYTHING this current Jewish state does. Jesus called the Jews of His time who rejected Him the “sons of Satan”. We have to remember this applies to EVERYONE today, Jew or no, who is currently rejecting the gospel. There are many Jewish “sons of Satan” in Israel today who not only reject the God of their forefathers, but use the gullibility of the American public and our foreign Policy to be able to oppress their neighbors for their own monetary gain. To blindly follow any Israeli Policy puts us at risk of unintentionally serving these “sons of Satan”

    • Hi Mae,

      Yes, blindly following Israel might be bad.

      But, blindly following the MASSIVE smear campaigns of the media and the Palestinians would be far worse.

      As a life-long student of the Arab-Israeli conflict, you have absolutely no idea how bad the Palestinians are, and how good the Israelis are. If you knew the true nature of the conflict, you’d never say a bad word about the Israelis, ever – even though they are not without fault.

      Don’t get caught by the liars, Mae. I’ve seen the truth with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  8. John I do not even begin to think I understand a lot of these Jewish laws and traditions as a matter of fact reading through the book of Leviticus was the driest reading for me ever. The thing I have ever gotten most from it was praise God all of the conditions of salvation have been met in Christ Jesus. I know one person who has been brought along by the Hebrew Roots movement and using the Talmud they are so tangled it is simply heart wrenching to listen to it.
    And it does boil down to the fact that without Christ, ANY are utterly lost and to be pitied.
    Paul also warns in Galatians 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.

    3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.

    4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

    The relentless usury that we have seen in America and around the world is a violation of the underlying principle set forth by what the Lord laid out in the law.
    The whole of the worlds financial system is seeking to bring people under ITS control. Mostly by fear.
    Christ restored that which satan usurped at the fall of man.
    Matthew 16:9 Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

    10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

    11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

    12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

    13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

    14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.

    15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

    16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

    17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

  9. good bringing up how all were sinners until they were quickened to Christ, none are born in Christ from their mothers womb or by their own will or anothers will or something huh. ephesians 2 and john 1 are quick summations. I’ve wondered at the israel haters too, they seem to come off as if they’d always been in Christ or are by their own means in Christ or something and are somehow naturally holy and had never been blind and sinners or something. terrible group.

    Luke 18:9-14…in the natural their not like THOSE sinners…?
    rev 12, satan hates israel too, enjoys getting people to hate just like he hates, once he fails at destroying her he’ll snare them to hate any who truly follow the Lord, you’d notice it already when they turn on you for not hating or joining with them.
    Israel has sin, what nation or people outside of Christ doesn’t? romans 11:27,,take away their sins, shows that sin is indeed present and it needs be taken away, and it will. Awesome, and is the same thing that occurs when any in darkness are saved so is not hard to comprehend.

    Lots of things point to 2015 as something to watch, I wouldn’t say it’s all about the shmita either but many things together and even the lunar eclipses.

    Sometimes it seems people pick a group to hate because their beloved world (and that is a terrible thing to be “of”, john 17, james 4 and others show “of” or holding onto the world) their beloved world perishes, and loving it their angry that it perishes and so look for someone to blame. Best to flee the world in heart mind and Spirit and flee completely unto Christ, come out of the world john 15:19.
    His kingdoms isn’t shaking! :))

  10. John,

    Don’t use the wrong spelling or pronunciation just because there are people who do so.
    How are they ever going to learn the correct way if every one cow tows to the lowest common denominator & no one teaches them the correct way?

    While I understand what you are saying, I also understand that there is so much more to words
    than we know or begun to learn. Enough rambling…..

    Use the word’s father YHWH gives. If others do not understand, splain it to them & offer a prayer,
    but don’t compromise what you know ( or think you do ) as truth. ( you used not to pick on you personally but to soley point to an individual whether its physically you, me or whom ever….. 🙂 )

    Thanks for your letter each day. I miss them the day’s you don’t send…..
    ( PS: When will chapters 3, 4 5 & 6 be available on your other web site? )

    • Hi Loren Martell,

      Well, it’s a judgment call. Some battles are worth fighting. Others… not so much.

      Although, I draw the line at Hummus. It’s properly pronounced choo-MUSS (ch as in Bach) and NOT HUH-mus. I will go down FIGHTING over that pronunciation! There will be WAR. I will fight in the…

      um… okay. where was I… oh yes.

      The chapters on the ‘other site’ are going up as fast as my little fingers can push them out. Chapter Three will probably start by the end of this week.

      Thank you, Loren!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  11. “The rule for all Christians is this:

    Anyone who does not acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and God – is not saved. Period.”

    Wrong, John !! The Bible says that “Except a man be born or water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:5)

    Your “acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and God” is a watered down version of the true gospel.
    So how is a person really born again? Accepting Christ, acknowledging Christ, blinking your headlights, shaking hands with the pastor?” None of these will substitute for actual salvation.
    Peter told us how to be born again on the day of Pentecost, the day the church began, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”. (Acts 2:38). There you have it. Birth of water = baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. Birth of Spirit = receiving the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in tongues, as in vs. 4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave the utterance.’
    There is only one saving message. Be sure you are in the right, Sir.

    • Hi john varner,

      I did not say that this was ALL you needed to be saved. But, I was saying that WITHOUT this acknowledgement you could NOT be saved.

      There really is a difference.

      Please understand that I truly know that without obedience to God, a person’s faith is worthless.

      Thank you, John, for that admonition.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  12. What an excellent article John! So, at least in part, my earlier comment about these cycles being caused by man’s evil nature hold some water! Because if we obeyed God and observed shmitah it would disrupt those terrible cycles. I’m still pondering what observing this would mean. I don’t think I can fully grasp it. Everyone and everything, including the earth would get a rest. No more chemtrail spraying? The destruction of earth would stop for a year? Everyone would pull back from chasing the wind for an entire year? No debt? Wow, the bankers wouldn’t like that one!
    I actually tried for a while to observe a weekly sabbath. My thinking was that Christians talk about obeying the 10 commandments yet none give a thought to the Sabbath and have substituted Sunday meetings instead. God commanded a seventh day rest. I’m not aware of a command for Sunday. So, I embarked on this that I would not do my own job on Sabbath. I had one customer ask if I was Jewish! I embarked on this keeping in mind that Sabbath is made for man. It was impossible to stop all activity on that day. Then I started thinking that the calendar has been so screwed up do we even know really what day it is anymore in God’s view? We can cease from our own works spriritually but in this world, to have one day set aside is very difficult. The entire planet seemed to be set to ‘suicide mode’. Our condition is so desperate that even after the real trouble begins, and even when God’s judgements begin to really be poured out, scripture says ” and they did not repent”.

  13. Yes, some of us do criticize Israel for its behaviors. What I don’t understand is why those of us who do criticize Israel are vilified by those purporting to be Christian. I have posed a list of questions to many, many people about Israel and nobody, not one person is willing or able to answer a single one.

    Instead, they deflect criticism by building straw men arguments and resort to name calling – “you don’t like Israel, you must be a Nazi” “those are very anti-Semitic” “if you believe that nonsense you can’t possibly be a Christian”. They never answer the questions however. Why is that? My theory is that they have been so brainwashed that they cannot possibly imagine a world where criticism of the corporate entity called Israel is permitted. It’s intellectually dishonest to call people names in lieu of honest discussion about a given subject.

    • Hi David,

      Having studied the conflict and lived in Israel for 15 years, I can answer your questions. I just don’t have the time, or energy to do so.

      What I can say is that your view of Israel is warped by the false narrative that you are being given. Israel is NOT the aggressor that the media and the Palestinian apologists make them out to be.

      Read Ezekiel 36 and 37, David, and then tell me what God is doing there.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  14. I understand what you are saying here as well as where it comes from. However, Jonathan Cahn is a believer in Jesus our Messiah. He clearly states that we as christains are not under law. That being said, we were once a nation under GOD and have turned far from that, therefore placing ourselves under GOD ‘s laws and judgements stated in the Torah. He is sending the same message as you, in that he is telling all who have ears to hear and eyes to see to first come into the ark, (JESUS!), then to prepare for collapse of everything we have found security in, false as it is!
    Thankyou for your diligent attempt to wake the saints, who as yet, are still mostly asleep…

    • Hi Debra,

      I understand that and rejoice in this fact. However, Jonathan Cahn uses the writings of those who are antichrist, and this is not a good thing. This will lead to great error, if he does not repent of this.

      And yes, it is a sin.

      Thank you, Debra. I appreciate your points.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • John, in sincerety, I’m lost as to why you consider what Jonathan Cahn is basing his teaching on as antichrist…I truly am missing something here! I’ll go back and read again what you posted and if I’m still confused, I may need some clarification. Forgive me, I am not as young and astute as I once was!

        • Hi Debra,

          I’m not saying that Jonathan Cahn is basing all of his teaching on materials that are antichrist. I am just saying that he consults those materials on a regular basis, and this is very troubling to me.

          Talmud, by definition is antichrist. In fact, it is sometimes horrifyingly antichrist. And, I know that Jonathan consults the Talmud regularly.

          Does Jonathan Cahn give an antichrist message?

          Not at all. I deeply appreciate his desire to spread the gospel. And, I consider him to be a brother in Christ.

          But, I have long experience with the antichrist nature of the Talmud, and I do not want anyone to be caught in it.

          Please also understand that I have a profound love for the Jews and a strong desire to go back to my adopted hometown of Jerusalem. I look forward to the day when we will welcome them as brothers and sisters in Christ.

          Thank you, Debra. I hope that I cleared that Up for you.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  15. Dear Mr Little,

    I often read your posts and am thankful that you take the time to educate the public on many issues pertinent to our precarious times. Today I read this post on the Shmita/ECM issue. You indicated the following:

    The rule for all Christians is this: Anyone who does not acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord, Savior and God – is not saved. Period.
    And, anyone who does not conform to that rule, is: antichrist

    As a Christian myself, I feel it incumbent to take the gospel at face value. While at times we all struggle with bible translations and interpretations, we still need to consolidate these various interpretations to resolve intent. To my understanding, while Christ is a godly being, he never claimed to be God according to our scriptures.

    Hence, I await the return of the Son of God, our true and rightful King and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Here I stand ready to assist him in our fight against evil.

    Take care and God bless.

    • Hi Alex Crichton

      As it says in 1 John 2:23:

      Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

      I’m sorry Alex, but you have denied the Son, and so you do not have the Father. This means that you are NOT a Christian and are destined for an eternity in Hell.

      For you to deny the deity of Christ is amazing. The Book of John if FULL of pronouncements of being God.

      Will you also reject Colossians 10:9?

      I’m sorry Alex, but you have rejected Christ. You must repent and accept Christ not just as your sacrifice for sin – but as GOD.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
