The concept of the seventh-year sabbath of the land is not familiar to many Christians. The sabbath of the land is explained in Exodus 23:10-11. Chapter 17 of "The Harbringer" by Johnathan Cahn tells of the relationship of Sept., 11, 2001, to the seventh-year sabbath of the land and to the year of release. "10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof: 11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and with thy olive yard." The year of release also is quite simple. In the seventh year before the end of the sabbath of the land, all debts were to be released or forgiven.
