Are fruit trees excluded from the Sabbatical year command?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Sabbatical Year

After our previous article about preparing for the Sabbatical year, a very thought and study provoking question was asked by a friend. The question prompted us to want to investigate if fruit trees were included in the Sabbatical year commandment, specifically regarding pruning and harvesting. The answer to this would also affect if we could buy fruit during this time.

We understand, after this study that fruit trees are included in the sense that we are not to prune our fruit trees or harvest fruit during the Sabbatical year. Let us present you our findings.

In the previous article, we have shared with you why the land must be left to lie fallow. YHVH is the owner of the land; we are the stewards and are to do what He commands. Apart from that, we have learned how the land benefits from keeping this commandment by rejuvenating and regenerating itself. We then benefit from the crops that are produced. Without letting the land rest; the soil eventually dies and becomes barren. YHVH has another reason for us to keep this commandment, a very important reason, it is about debt and poverty.

The next sabbatical year is in 2016; have you thought about how you are going to keep it? Keeping the Sabbatical year is generally dismissed as something that we can’t do because we don’t live in the land. YHVH instructed us to keep this commandment, and we would like to show you why it is for all to keep, even us in the nations. We also want to share the other common objections with you and why these are not built on truth.

We shall also show you what the consequences would be if we don’t keep it and some practical ideas on how we can keep it.
