The Shemitah: The Biblical Pattern Which Indicates That A Financial Collapse May Be Coming In 2015

The Shemitah- Financial Collapse In 2015Does a mystery that is 3,500 years old hold the key to what is going to happen to global financial markets in 2015?  Could it be possible that the timing of major financial crashes is not just a matter of coincidence?  In previous articles on my website, I have discussed some of the major economic and financial cycle theories and their proponents.  For example, in an article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“, I examined a number of economic cycle theories that seem to indicate that the second half of this decade is going to be a nightmare economically.  But the cycle that I am going to discuss in this article is a lot more controversial than any of those.  In his most recent book, Jonathan Cahn has demonstrated that almost all of the major financial crashes in U.S. history are very closely tied to a seven year pattern that we find in the Bible known as “the Shemitah”.  Since that book was released, I have been asked about this repeatedly during radio appearances.  So in this article I am going to attempt to explain what the Shemitah is, and what this Biblical pattern seems to indicate may happen in 2015.  If you are an atheist, an agnostic, or are generally skeptical by nature, this article might prove quite challenging for you.  I would ask that you withhold judgment until you have examined the evidence.  When I first heard about these things, I had to go verify the facts for myself, because they are truly extraordinary.

So precisely what is “the Shemitah”?

In the Bible, the people of Israel were commanded to let the land lie fallow every seven years.  There would be no sowing and no reaping, and this is something that God took very seriously.  In fact, the failure to observe these Sabbath years was one of the main reasons cited in the Scriptures for why the Jewish people were exiled to Babylon in 586 BC.

But there was more to the Shemitah year than just letting the land lie fallow.

On the last day of the Shemitah year, the people of Israel were instructed to perform a releasing of debts.  We find the following in Deuteronomy chapter 15

At the end of every seven years you shall grant a relinquishing of debtsThis is the manner of the relinquishing: Every creditor that has loaned anything to his neighbor shall relinquish it. He shall not exact it of his neighbor, or of his brother, because it is called the Lord’s relinquishment.

This happened at the end of every seven years on Elul 29 – the day right before Rosh Hashanah on the Biblical calendar.

So what does this have to do with us today?

Well, if you go back to the last day of the Shemitah year in 2001, you will find that there was an absolutely horrifying stock market crash.

On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up to that time.  The Dow fell an astounding 684 points, and it was a record that held for precisely seven years until the end of the next Shemitah year.

At the end of the next Shemitah year in 2008, another horrifying stock market crash took place.  On September 29th, 2008 the Dow plummeted 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time.  It turns out that September 29th, 2008 corresponded with Elul 29 on the Jewish calendar – the precise day when the Bible calls for a releasing of debts.

So on the very last day of the last two Shemitah years, the stock market crashed so badly that it set a brand new all-time record.

And now we are in another Shemitah year.  It began last fall, and it will end next September.

Could it be possible that we will see another historic market crash?

Author Jonathan Cahn has correctly pointed out that we should never put God in a box.  Just because something has happened in the past does not mean that it will happen again.  But we should not rule anything out either.

Perhaps God is using His calendar to make a point.  Cahn believes that if we are going to see something happen, it will probably occur as the Shemitah year comes to an end

Cahn has pointed that, according to his research, the worst of the worst usually happens at the end of the Shemitah year, not at the beginning. In fact, the last day of the year, Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, which will occur on Sept. 13, 2015, is the most dreaded day.

The pattern revealed in “The Mystery of the Shemitah” is that the beginning of the Shemitah’s impact is often subtle, but leads to a dramatic climax.

“The beginning may mark a change in direction, even a foreshadow of what will come to a crescendo at the Shemitah’s end,” he said.

And this time around, far more people are paying attention.  Back in 2001 and 2008, most Americans had absolutely no idea what a “Shemitah year” was.  But now it is being talked about on some of the most prominent alternative news websites on the Internet.  For example, the following is what Joseph Farah of WND has to say about the Shemitah year…

Farah believes the date Sept. 13, 2015 bears close watching – though he is quick to admit he has no idea what, if anything, will happen in America.

“A clear pattern has been established,” he says. “I don’t believe it’s a coincidence what happened in America on Elul 29 in 2001 and 2008. It would be foolish to ignore the possibility that a greater judgment might be in the works – especially if America continues to move away from God and His Word.”

The Shemitah year that we are in now does end on September 13th, 2015 – and that falls on a Sunday so the markets will be closed.

But what it comes to the Shemitah, we aren’t just looking at one particular day.

And it is very interesting to note that there will also be a solar eclipse on September 13th, 2015.  Over the past century, there have only been two other times when a solar eclipse has corresponded with the end of a Shemitah year.  Those two times were in 1931 and 1987, and as Jonathan Cahn has told WND, those solar eclipses foreshadowed major financial disasters…

In 1931, a solar eclipse took place on Sept. 12 – the end of a “Shemitah” year. Eight days later, England abandoned the gold standard, setting off market crashes and bank failures around the world. It also ushered in the greatest monthlong stock market percentage crash in Wall Street history.

In 1987, a solar eclipse took place Sept. 23 – again the end of a “Shemitah” year. Less than 30 days later came “Black Monday” the greatest percentage crash in Wall Street history.

Is Cahn predicting doom and gloom on Sept. 13, 2015? He’s careful to avoid a prediction, saying, “In the past, this ushered in the worst collapses in Wall Street history. What will it bring this time? Again, as before, the phenomenon does not have to manifest at the next convergence. But, at the same time, and again, it is wise to take note.”

So what is going to happen this time?

We will just have to wait and see.

But without a doubt so many of the same patterns that we witnessed just prior to the financial crash of 2008 are happening again right before our very eyes.

It has been said that those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Perhaps you believe that there is something to “the Shemitah”, or perhaps you think that it is all a bunch of nonsense.

But at least now you know what everyone is talking about.  What you choose to do with this information is up to you.

  • Hello

    If people were instructed to release everyone from debt every 7 years, what would be the point in anyone even trying to pay back a debt owed when they knew it would just be cancelled after that time frame?

    • Guest

      Fifteen and 30-year mortgages are a modern thing. Loan terms used to be much, much shorter. Also, central banks that issue fiat money and enslave people to a lifetime of debt payments are a modern thing. In the Old Testament whenever you see a reference to money it’s usually silver!

        30 years is nothing.I’ve been paying rent for 41 years.I need another Great Depression 1930’s style.

    • GSOB

      You still had to eat and provide for your own and the 7 year cycle kept one free, productive, honest and able to rest, by enjoying the fruit of their labor,… which
      mostly agricultural, livestock and dwellings, when not in slavery..

      Remember

      The Sabbath came into being for man and not man for the Sabbath.

    • Lennie Pike

      In South Carolina it’s only 3 years, although not an “instructed release from debt” admittedly, but you have to stop payments to get the clock ticking – then you only have to find a way to fly under the radar for 3 years so to keep your stuff. Your credit will be destroyed of course, but it’s amazing how fast it can be repaired and be given more credit – they will gladly welcome back their runaway debt slave – then repeat. This behavior is only advisable if it is a criminal bankster to whom you are indebted – it would be immoral and wrong otherwise. It’s a way of getting back some of your money (labor) that they have stolen from you by means of their fiat money inflation enslavement scam.

      It must be nice to have the right gained through the barrel of a gun to create money out of thin air at the time a loan is made. Most of us are not willing to treat our fellow man in such a way. Thanks a lot central bankers, and go to hell.

    • Lennie Pike

      Instructed by whom? Your Master here on earth? Who would that be exactly – someone in Washington D.C. taking orders from someone on Wall Street taking orders from someone in The City of London taking orders from someone in Israel (not every one there) taking orders from someone straight from hell?..

      Take your orders from God Almighty in heaven through His Son Jesus Christ and forget the rest – then you will be o.k. with no worries – just saying.

    • stephen

      Thats the difference between the Hebrew mindset vs. the American mindset.

      In biblical times one would only loan out what could be paid back before 7 years. This resulted in less lending and debt. Also when people borrowed they did everything they could to pay back what they owed.

      something to think about

  • Robert

    For 35 years I have listened to Bible prophecies and one person after another try to stuff events into scripture. Even scripture that is addressed to the Jews. It is an industry, the prophecy thing. The common denominator with prophecy is that its meaning always came to light after the prophetic utterings. Often times centuries. Whatever happens happens. I have seen more Christians who are supposedly people of faith behave faithless by running around in a virtual panic. The simple financial truth is GET OUT OF DEBT AND STAY OUT OF DEBT. What could be more simple? Another truth is to live simply. Look at garages that people have. They cannot park their car inside because of all the stuff. America is one continuous yard sale. I somehow find it a stretch to think the Bible had the various western stockmarkets, the US dollar, the EURO etc. in mind when the scriptures were written. Yes, I am debt free and have been that way most of my life. That, people, is freedom.

    • David

      What about the fed quits creating debt. Which is mony that they don’t have but get to own the hard asset. How about they get out of debt and stay out

      • T.

        Exactly. The Fed and all the central banks of the western world continually create Debt for the people of their nation. Cui Bono – To whose benefit. Why, the International Bankster Cartel. Even Robert owes his share of the National Debt of the Nation. Like Greece – The United States of America is BANKRUPT. I will say emphatically – God is NOT the One who is causing the stock markets to Crash every 7 years per this article. It is the International Banking Cartel of the House of Rothschild (who is JEWISH). Cui Bono – To whose benefit. ALL THE MARKETS OF THE WORLD ARE TOTALLY CONTROLLED – By the Global Rothschild Banking Cabal. Again, the Banksters will CRASH the markets of the world on a day in September 2015 – You can take that to the Banksters.

        • sharonsj

          I looked up the remaining Rothschild family members (see “Business Insider”). 11 were listed. Of the 11 only 4 had anything to do with finance. Also, according to the names, some aren’t Jewish. Time to give up the crazy conspiracy theories and focus on real facts (or is that too difficult for you?).

          • T.

            Just because you do extremely POOR research – Is NO reason for any one to give up on anything.

          • therooster57

            Good. Add real assets (L2) to existing liquidity (L1) so that existing debt based liquidity (fiat) (L1) can be reduced. Bullion is now a currency. Just add assets and stir …. gently.

          • Doug Ribot

            The devil is certainly suckering a lot of people to believe lies about the nobel Rothschild name.

          • therooster57

            Want real facts ? Ignore the perceived speculation of elite intentions and focus on the axiom of capability and incapability. Real-time floating bullion values had to have a real-time measure before the bullion could have full scale liquidity. There are necessary evils written into “the script”. You cannot pour new wine into old wineskins. The information age (and real-time applications) are like a new wineskin.

        • U.

          I think you need to develop a more mature world view than the juvenile naivety of conspiratorial and anti-Semitic theories. And get over using “Banksters” – its become such a cliche’ on this blog and it no longer has the impact it once did.

            You do realize that before you call someone Anti-Semetic that you need to realize that you’re talking about more than just jews. How abourt Arabs and black people. These people are Semetic as well. Learn your own history and don’t let others tell you things to believe without research.

          • highway

            A third of all people are Semetic. Noah had three sons to which all people came from. Genesis 10.

          • Doug Ribot

            Learn the history of the word — it means people who hate hate Jews. Everyone knows what is meant by it but some people like to wrangle about words which does no good for anyone.

          The completion of the liquidity yin-yang is the completion of the light side now that the dark side is in place. That is a job for the market, not the powers-that-be. It is light that comes out of darkness now that we have real-time floating bullion values.

    • Dale

      Robert. I totally understand where you are coming from, but let me challenge your thinking regarding the ability of the Bible to address complicated, modern issues. If one believes, as I do, that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that God Himself exists outside of time, it would not be a stretch at all for his Word to address/report the full timeline of history (including current, seemingly complicated events). The EURO is not such a big deal to Someone who considers thermonuclear fusion to be child’s play (i.e., the sun).

      • Robert

        With respect Dale, there is nothing complex or complicated about greed, cheating, lying and all the other “sins” we find throughout scripture. My problem is that there is an endless stream of “interpretations” and “applications” that are questionable at best and downright misleading at worse. I suppose the fundamental issue for believers is a sovereign God’s intervention and to what degree is that intervention. I think men overstep their understanding of scriptures and pass along information that is not there nor does it help matters. Thanks for your reply.

        • Dale

          Gotcha. I think you are correct!

        • nohomehere

          Robert, it is ok to discount men and all their words , so on that note may i say that the words in the Book, ARE NOT men’s words and thus are Spirit and life ,Right! so if your honest in your belife in the Book you will notice that the directions are simple . Jesus Christ said the following , the greatest commandment is 1. Love God with all you got and 2. Love your neighbor as if he were you , that will answer all the laws and the PROPHECY’S . as you are tired of men pushing their agendas using prophecy extrapulation was a big turn off ! on a side note debt is a economic tool used from first recorded economic transactions . other wise why would God have to command a forgiveness of debt in the first place? think about it and don’t try to excuse yourself from helping others pay off debt by forgiving it of someone who owes you! I mean come on wouldnt you forgive you if you needed it?The Lords Prayer “forgive us our debts as we forgive those who are indebted to us”, we are all connected and need one another in this order God man then the rest , So simple! Or, is it? Jesus said sell all that you have and give it to the poor! eeeehhhhhhhhhh!

          • therooster57

            NoHomeHere … agree with your conclusion of God’s inclusion of debt, but does that mean the use of debt currency ? There are two aspects to the use of the word “debt”. If I lend you an asset, such as gold, you have a gold based debt to me to repay the asset. There are no systemic counter-party risks to the innocent, but if I lend you a dollar, the subsequent holders of that debt instrument are vulnerable. There can be very different uses of the word and different applications.

        • Thomas Wayne Vogt

          Thesemultitude of interpretations started when? During and since the rebellion against the chur h by martin luther and john calvin… giving rise now to… what? 35000 different interpretations of scripture… when Christ actually only started 1 church.

          • Kirsten Grant

            Christ didn’t start the church. People did – people who were interpreting what he taught.

          • Thomas Wayne Vogt

            Matthew 16-19 YES… Christ did start the church of whom he placed the apostles as leaders of that church, if you want to second guess Chriat’s decision that is your problem, but do not state lies as truth. Jesus did start the church, ‘the universal church’… the Catholic church which has been under attack from outside and inside forces influenced by Satan.

        • auskiwi

          I couldn’t agree more about the sins aspect. Cahn is very strong on the idea that the US as a nation is under judgement for various sins, one of which being the multi trillion dollar debt. I can see how essential it is for this huge debt problem to be resolved. One resolution is debt forgiveness, that being God’s preferred resolution according to the Scripture. Failing that, the debt bubble will be deflated one way or the other, and that has traditionally been achieved by a stock market crash. The seven year timing of this boom-bust cycle in my opinion is extraordinary and must be of divine origin.Of course we will see if the cycle repeats itself in September. I don’t believe debt forgiveness is an option still on the table on Wall Street, so given that many independent financial analysts are predicting a crash this year for their own reasons, I can see no reason not to have some expectation of a continuation of the Shemitah cycle.

      Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

      And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

      2Pe 3:5
      For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

      2Pe 3:6
      Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

      2Pe 3:7
      But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

          Liquidity ….we need debt-free liquidity and then debt can be purged back to its nothingness from whence it came. A liquidity yin-yang of debts and assets would do nicely. In the order of creation, isn’t it light that comes out of darkness ?

          • DJ

            Robert, Bible is VERY relevant to modern social and economic system. Although modern societies have industrial and informational industries that didn’t few thousand years back, but the most basic industrial principle of any given civilization is this: PEOPLE EAT. Agriculture is the most foundational and essential of all other industrial activities, and everything else stems from this. Don’t you know even the gas price is hugely influenced by the corn production? Although the bible doesn’t talk about when the new generation of iPad will be released or how Facebook will have affected the social structure, it INDEED discusses the most general&foundational principles of any civilization that affect EVERYTHING.

          • gfmucci

            Whether we think of God as the God of the Bible, or some all knowing extra-terrestrial from another dimension, the point is that He knows all, the beginning and the ending, the first and the last. Therefore, His principles run the gamut of everything that has happened and that will happen. Therefore, I have no doubt that He has included our present day financial market in his generic pronouncements that have to do with economics, finances, agriculture and everything else under the sun.

      • Clive

        It’s unfair to throw these scriptures at Robert. He is certainly not mocking God but simply expressing scepticism about applying God’s Word to current events. As he notes in a further post below a lot of Christians, including clergy, have been hurt when they have placed too much unquestioning trust in prophetic interpretations that appear to suit our times. Michael has written a potentially important and relevant article but it is clear that he does not expect anyone to blindly accept his viewpoint but rather seems to encourage the reader to look further into the matter or to brush it aside.

        • Youxia88

          He didn’t say that! What’s so wrong with citing Scripture?!

        • UnCommon_Sense..IsThisThingOn

          He may not be intentionally mocking God but he is definitely putting him in a box. God has been the same since the beginning of time and his word is timeless. From my observation, the past is the best indication of what’s to come.

        • Thomas Wayne Vogt

    • Orange Jean

      I could not have said it better!

      I have had years living in poverty, due to some bad choices I made when I was young…. and for a time was in debt due to trying to dig my way out of a no win situation. I eventually got a better skill set, a better paying job, but for a time I got sucked up into the notion that the way to get “ahead in my career” was to go from job to job, across country multiple times trying to pursue a better job, etc., me paying and at times going into debt to do that. Truth is, I did get some better work but it was at a cost to me (loss of friends, loss of closer contact with family, etc.)

      Once I finally broke the cycle, quit using the credit cards, decided stuff is just stuff… and only get what you really need… plus paid off ALL debt and decided I will not move again for any job unless either they pay for me to move or I use savings, I felt 100% better about my life.

      I agree it is true freedom, and for those of you who are Christian and feel that is important… I’d like to add this message as well. Once you are debt free… you are then in a position where you may feel you can *afford* to be charitable towards others. I enjoy on occasion doing something by voluntarily spreading what I have around a bit.

      Somehow the whole debt-free thing also makes me have more faith in God, because I truly believe God helps those who help themselves… to the fullest extent they are able to do so. Not everyone is in a place where they can live without help, but it does matter that we try to do our best.

      I do find also that almost of the people who are looking for a debt “forgiving” are the people who owe money, not the ones who are owed money.

Um, why can’t you acknowledge that GOD had a part in it? Oh, I know the answer, because then you’d have to account for all your actions to higher source (and standard). GOD bless you.

    • the truth

      Robert, I take it from everything you wrote that you are the kind of person who stands in front of a mirror and proclaims proudly “I am wholely and completely responsible for everything I am, have and accomplish. Those folks who claim God at work in there lives are deluding themselves and the Bible is fantasy.” Please understand my assumption is not solely aimed at you in particular for the folks in the USA for the most part continually pat themselves on their back congratulating themselves on being like you portray “free” from spiritual restrictions as having any causal responsibility for their achievements. My point is this precise attitude/perspective is what brings destruction to every aspect of a persons life through a self aggrandizement that murders not only your soul but everyone else whose life you touch. This is precisely what both the Harbinger and the Shemitah are about; the proclaiming of one’s ability to control every aspect of their being. Let me end this by saying absolutely no one, not even God Himself will force you to accept His reality and the facts set forth in the Bible but your denial will only work right up to the day you die.

      • Robert

        How in the world you managed to come up with that paragraph from what I said baffles me. I have seen some preachers tell their flocks not to worry about saving for retirement because Jesus would be returning in their lifetime. I have seen people in ministry turn down social security because of the same idea and some of them have hit retirement with nothing. What about the name it and claim it bunch on TV? The bribe God crowd and oh I will make a few bucks off u. You do not know me yet you sit in judgment of me specifically. Not unusual among Christians.

      • Doug Ribot

        I think you sit in front of a mirror and fantasize you have the Truth. Jonathan Cahn’s observation may be true about the Shemitah but the judgment in my opinion is also because of Churches such as his own Beth Israel and his weak leadership in executing the commandments of Jesus/Yeshua Christ /Messiah for a Church.

        • Doug Ribot

          But statistics often lie

      • stephen

        Seriously? So many following Cahn’s teaching on the shemitah still? The shemitah that Jonathan Cahn says applies to the U.S. because the market crashed 7% (actually the stock market dipped and later recovered). But is that the truth? Actually figure for 17 Sept 2001 was 6.98%. The other dates are rounded up and down; its unfortunate that Jonathan Cahn makes claims about a total stock market crash but the bible says the shemitah was ONLY given to Israel and there are no prophesies about it applying to any other nation.
        Interesting.

        Also interesting is the 6.98% dip in the stock market… does that mean God does not do what He says He will? Or that the U.S. is only 6.98% bad so the market only dipped that amount?

        Another interesting point – because the shemitah is a release of DEBTS but it’s not mandatory for foreigners creates a problem for Cahn too. Then there is the OPTION for Jews to release debts of foreigners – again something Cahn does not talk about even though it’s clearly shown in scripture.

        “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts. 2 And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the Lord’s release. 3 Of a foreigner you may require it; but you shall give up your claim to what is owed by your brother, 4 except when there may be no poor among you; for the Lord will greatly bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance—“ Deut 15:1-4

        BTW the shemitah is a release of debts, not stock market. If you look at the consumer and govt debt levels from 1930 to present, there is no decrease or wiping away of any debts. But what was the result of the crash… err dip in the market in 2008? There was a 700 million dollar bailout that was placed upon the backs of citizens via taxes, which resulted in more govt debt and more consumer debt. I wonder Cahn doesn’t bring up that info in his books & DVDs?

        Cahn also states the “wake” of the shemitah destroys economies and people are ravaged by the lack of food but again scripture disagrees with Cahn. Yes the 7th year is to lie fallow but look what happens in the 6th year…

        “‘And if you say, “What shall we eat in the seventh year, since we shall not sow nor gather in our produce?”21 Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years. 22 And you shall sow in the
        eighth year, and eat old produce until the ninth year; until its produce comes in, you shall eat of the old harvest.”
        Leviticus 25:20-22

        Notice that if they observe shemitah there would be no famine, hunger or lack of money because God would increase the 6th year harvest 3x its normal amount. If they disobeyed the shemitah, they would only harvest that years amount. Either way it would not wreck their society.

        I bet Cahn is already making excuses for when Sept 2015 passes and there is no total collapse.

        Be careful whom you follow – let it be no man but the Father, the Messiah and the Holy Spirit – all of which are never in conflict with the scriptures.

      Sounds like you wasted 35 years listening but not understanding?

      Psalms 49:12 Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

      Psalms 49:20 Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

      Proverbs chapter 1,Excerpt:

      Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

      She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
      How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

      Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

      Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

      But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
      I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

      When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

      • Doug Ribot

        Robert has obeyed the Lord in staying out of debt. He’s also cautious because of the many false connections of the present to Biblical events. You have a condemning attitude toward this brother.

    • timwebb1000 .

      “If the Son therefore shall set you free, ye shall be free indeed”.
      Robert has made up his own definition of freedom; as such, he is guilty of a major error in understanding.

      • Doug Ribot

        What definition n did he make up? He obeyed the Biblical admonition to stay out of debt (if possible) and he’s cautious about predictions that seem to connect to scriptural events but often don’t. Sounds wise to me.

    • Zebie

      You can never get out of debt and here is why. You are a subject from your government You are indirectly in debt because your government most certainly is in debt . In this way you are still and always will be a debt slave, unfortunatly. Like most of us. As long as this systeem exists true freedom will never exist.

      • therooster57

        There is nothing LAWFUL that prevents the individual from adding debt-free liquidity (bullion) into circulation and support the purging of existing fiat based debt.

        • Doug Ribot

          But those functioning under color of law have made the Legal Tender act and have men in uniforms with guns doing their bidding.

          • therooster57

            Of course ! The legacy system , based on debt, must be protected at all cost. That is not to say that the system, overall, is not destined to become a yin-yang of debt based liquidity and asset based liquidity, both. A hybrid is in order. Neither paradigm can be allowed to fail. As for order in the development of the yin-yang, true to creation , it is light that comes out of darkness. The free floating fiat paradigm has been a prerequiste to the freedom of bullion prices and the resurrection of real-time (floating) gold-as-currency where weight can now act as the unit of account.

      Freedom that Jesus sets you free is the BONDAGE of the LIE$ that the Greed of LUST for the LOVE of $money$ that binds you to this $inful world . Can a human live without MONEY ? answer :) yes ….. but this is the TRUE question :
      Will you give up the desire of $in that the flesh calls out for , For the TRUTH = Jesus Christ = GAVE ?

      • therooster57

        Just add assets and stir. Bullion is now a real-time currency that purges debt when it circulates. I call it 21st century fishes & loaves.

      • Doug Ribot

        Perhaps this Shemitah end will bring a time of testing!

    • therooster57

      ” Get out of debt & stay out of debt” . Not easy when we almost exclusively use debt as a currency. We need assets to actually circulate like a “liquidity yin-yang” where nothing already in place is destroyed. Just add real assets and stir …. gently. A nice charge for the market-place, don’t you think, especially now that bullion floats in value and can purge so much more debt than when it had FIXED values ? Bullion is now a real-time currency. Know it. Use it. Never forget the gifts of the Magi.

    • bert

      The shemitah is not about prophecy; it is about warning. Try to keep up.

      • Doug Ribot

        Just curious what the Shemitah does to bring attention to or locate Messiah.We all see sin increasing toward judgment and it looks like it’s reflected in the markets but the statistics are poorly if at all referenced in his book and I really doubt it stands scrutiny. A few things in the Harbinger were interesting but it too had a number of contradictions. I think any valid facts in it could have been written up in a couple of pages from the interviews I heard but I never read the books.

      • stephen

        The shemitah doesn’t apply to the U.S. – if it did, there would be prophesies about it in scripture but there are ZERO.

      Yeah,
      This guy is legit about 7 year cycles of financial valleys in our economy. Think about it 2008, 2001,1994, 1987, 1980, 1973… all the way back to the depression have been downturn cycles. There really seems to be some Biblical basis for his theory, while not predicting any specific event, but that it seems ripe for a major judgement. He is not saying panic, he’s saying prepare and yes getting out of debt is what he’s also saying. Right now the USA is trillions $$ in the red, we just flipped off God with the recent supreme court decision on marriage, getting ready to cut a nuclear deal with a sworn enemy, abortions top 57million since 1973 while selling fetal body parts and on and on it goes with the moral decay. Stand firm in the faith and watch what God does through this as we share the truth with a skeptical world.

    Mr. Cahn does a great disservice to the Bible to form a doctrine of 7 year judgment upon the word pulled so loosely from its moorings in the Bible as whole. Exegesis to shock and thrill (and sell books) is hardly the way that God desires that treat his Word. Christ is the Sabbath. The final Sabbath and all prior connections to a 7th day are now replaced with the Lord’s Day. Christ has rested because he is the only true Israel, qualified as such by having accomplished what the Jewish state of Israel failed to do–keep the law perfectly.He is the Israel predicted from earliest times, that which the old Israel only pointed to. And because he has shed his blood to accomplish this true and final Sabbath, we can rest as well. Those who are Christians should seriously examine their teachings if they propagate such lies as Cahn poses as truths,

          adopt any unwanted babies?

      • Doug Ribot

        I’m not preoccupied with abortion but it is biblically clear, children are a blessing. Destroying them is sin. The aborted baby was alive (in most cases), it is not part of the mother’s body forensically speaking proved by DNA. To kill it is taking human life.
        God gave Israel over to laws which were not good so they would be horrified by what they did and repent. Homosexuality is another precursor to judgment.

        Where does the Bible say to help the poor without judgment? If I see a brethren in need and have what they need but don’t share how can the love of God be in me? I see someone who won’t work and as far as I’m concerned they can starve and to support them is sin no matter how poor they make themselves.

    There are so many things going on in the world right now that relate to Bible prophecy with Israel being the leader. Crank in all sorts of instability in Europe, the Middle East, and the Russian/China/Iran triangle of evil, and you have so many signs showing that this age is about to end you may not know where to start. I’m not sure of what is going to happen on Sept 13th this year, but I would bet that between now and then all sorts of hell will be breaking loose around the world.

    If investors believe this is, or may be, true, they will pull their money out of the market and cause the events that are foreshadowed. Perhaps this is what happened in the past. Even though I have never heard of this doesn’t mean that the people with serious money have. Now that many people have this information, the event may be bigger than other years.

    This has nothing to do with God and everything to do with cycles. Several important books such as “The Fourth Turning” and “The Great Reckoning” say the same things: at some point everything will fall apart and ordinary people will be faced with difficulty surviving. There are plenty of signs that this is happening now. They also say what you’ve heard before: find country property away from a big city, get self-sufficient, get out of debt. If you’re in debt now, don’t expect that the government and the corporations will suddenly make that debt disappear.

    So much wrong with Cahn’s shemitah book its not even funny. Consider the following…

    The Mystery of the Shemitah is that the shemitah was ONLY given to Israel and no other nation. Its true that Cahn does get inspiration and seeks esoteric info from the Zohar (see video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAFtormiU_0 ). The problem is that Cahn, while well meaning is making up doctrine and beliefs that are not taught by any writer or prophet of the bible. NEVER do we see God telling any other nation that the shemitah is to be observed by any other nation so how can he claim America is under the curse of the shemitah?

    Simply he should not. The biggest difference between Israel and the U.S. is that God (our Elohim) made a covenant with Israel and not the U.S.

    Cahn talks about a wake of the shemitah that ruins economies but NEVER in scripture do we see this – again more false teaching. I could go on but I will leave you with the following scriptures about the secrets and mysteries of the bible.

    His book is full of “facts” that are neither foot-noted nor referenced in any way, shape or form. He massages and manipulates the truth to suit him. Ex. paraphrased: “The stock market crashed in 1929, which was not a Shemitah year, but the real effects weren’t felt until 1930-31, which dates do fit my thesis.”

    Seriously? Lets look at his stock market claims…

    “Stock market’s greatest one-day point crashes”
    Throughout the chapter he refer’s to the “stock market” or the greatest one-day crashes on “Wall Street”, but provides no index or data to reference what he is referring to. After reading further and doing a bit of research, one is able to disect that he is referring to the performance of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). This index is made up of 30 large companies based in the United States, and is largely viewed by the investment community to be a poor representation of the entire U.S. stock market, which is made up of over 4000+ companies.

    One must also note that ‘point-crashes’ are not the same as ‘percentage-crashes,’ and that data based on ‘points’ rather than percentages is going to skew the data to the most recent recession or collapse. If the DOW was at 10 points at any given time, a 1-point decline would be a loss of 10%. If say, after (X)-many years, the DOW has grown to 1000 points, a 1 point decline would be a loss of .1%. BIG difference. As time goes on, the DJIA (and almost every other major index) has historically increased due to inflation, economic growth, increased output, etc… So, when Cahn refers to the “ten largest one-day point crashes”, we almost certainly know that the majority of the 10 dates will be from the most recent financial collapse of 2008. However, Cahn does not provide the index used, let alone the specific dates, so I have gone ahead and provided them here: (From Bloomberg)
    Dow Largest One-Day Point Losses: (as of Jan 2014)
    1. 09/29/2008
    2. 10/15/2008
    3. 09/17/2001
    4. 12/01/2008
    5. 10/09/2008
    6. 08/08/2011
    7. 04/14/2000
    8. 10/27/1997
    9. 08/10/2011
    10. 10/22/2008

    On page 113, he says, “Since the year of the Shemitah comes around only once in seven years, the chances would be one in seven. There are ten crashes on the list. So the chances of any one of these crashes taking place in the year of the Shemitah is 15 percent.” So lets see, 1 divided by seven is .14286 or 14.286%. The fact that there are ten crashes on the list (which in and of itself is marred with statistical issues…large sample error, negative skew) has no bearing on the probability of a crash occuring in a year of the Shemitah. Where he gets 15% from is beyond me, unless he is just rounding up, which should tell you something about the reliability of his analysis.

    Later on pg 113 he gets to the question, “Do any of the crashes have a connection to the year of the Shemitah? The answer is yes….Over half of the greatest point crashes in Wall Street history are joined by the biblical year of Remission…60 percent.” So, 6 out of ten dates on the list (60%) occur in the year of the Shemitah, as indicated by Cahn. We can therefore see that 2008 was the year of the Shemitah, because FIVE of the SIX dates on the list above occur in 2008. Warning bells should be going off by now. The other date, seven years earlier, is in 2001. Cahn does not inform his readers of the fact that 5 of the 10 dates were from 2008, only that 6 of the 10 largest point crashes occured in the Shemitah year. I smell something fishy.

    Among the many problems with both The Harbinger and the Shemitah, the three that immediately come to the reader’s attention are…

    1) Cahn mistakenly identifies the Shemitah as a universal principle that can affect any and all nations

    2) he wrongly identifies America as being a parallel to the nation of Israel in that he says it is a nation once dedicated to God and his purposes, but which has turned from God and is therefore subject to the “mystery of the Shemitah,” and…

    3) one of the most egregious errors for a work of non-fiction, Cahn bombards the reader with a deluge of assertions and claimed facts concerning financial and economic trends, building programs, and calamitous events which he connects to the Shemitah – but does so without any footnotes or any citations of source material whatsoever.

    1. There is not the slightest biblical support – and not even a hint that God expects or will impose a Shemitah upon any nation but Israel. There are no commands nor are there any examples whatsoever in the Scriptures that this is some sort of universal principle woven into the fabric of the Creation. Beyond this, in an appearance on the Jim Bakker show in August, Jonathan Cahn stated that when he was writing The Mystery of the Shemitah, “the revelations just came” to him from God, placing him in the position of essentially claiming to receive new revelation from God such that he is functioning as a prophet (my words, not his). This is significant because he is claiming to have discovered and is now revealing a mystery that has been neither seen nor expounded before he started doing so.

    2. Any objective evaluation of America’s history will reveal that although God’s name was invoked by the Founding Fathers at various points, even to the point of some seeing America as a new Israel, it is equally true that the paganism of Freemasonry is woven into the very foundation of America – and this is evident everywhere one looks in our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C. – to the degree that in the dome of the Capitol building, George Washington is depicted as becoming deity as he is received into heaven.

    3. Initial research indicates that the present Hebrew calendar may be off by 1 to 3 years from that of Moses’ day. If further research reveals this to be true, then this basically undermines the basic premise of the entire book because that would mean that none of the events described by the author are actually connected to the biblical seventh year that was to be observed when the Law was given to Moses. However, this remains to be definitively determined.

    4. The reason that God imposed a Shemitah judgment upon Israel was because they had failed to observe the Shemitah’s / Sabbath years that He required of them. However, there is no biblical basis whatsoever to claim that God has imposed a Shemitah-type judgment upon any nation that was not obligated to keep a Shemitah in the first place. Therefore, whatever has happened to America cannot be linked in any biblical way to a Shemitah. Furthermore, Cahn’s book seems to be arguing that God has imposed a Shemitah judgment upon America repeatedly in connection with the modern Hebrew reckoning of Sabbath years. This does not at all follow the ancient pattern that he tries to use as support for his unbiblical theory.

    5. while The Harbinger was classified as a work of fiction, Jonathan Cahn stated in an interview with Brannon Howse in 2012 that The Harbinger was 90% fact and 10% fiction. One of the problems in The Harbinger is that very few of his assertions and fact-claims are documented – so a tremendous amount of primary research was needed to do fact-checking to any degree. And, as it turned out there were many problems, not the least of which was what amounted to a very selective use of historical facts and statistics in order to make his case, as I thoroughly documented in my book, The Harbinger: Fact or Fiction.

    However, The Mystery of the Shemitah is not a work of fiction to any degree – it is non-fiction. Yet, as noted earlier, the author literally bombards the reader with dozens and dozens of assertions and fact-claims, all with absolutely no documentation of sources whatsoever. Unfortunately, because of the overwhelming success of The Harbinger, very few of his readers will ever take the time to do fact-checking themselves, although if The Harbinger is any indication, there are very possibly many problems in this book, as well.

    6. The problem with all of the calculations for Sabbath years is that the rabbis do not agree, even in the Talmud, as to whether the Jubilee year was concurrent with the 7th Sabbath year – or subsequent to it. The difference between the two possibilities is the shemitah year being off by 2 years for every 100 years of history. Since no one knows when the Jubilee year is, when this is combined with the difference of opinion concerning the relationship to the Sabbath year, the bottom line is that no one knows when the Sabbath year is on God’s calendar, no matter what it is according to man’s reckoning.

    Furthermore, there are questions concerning the suspension of the Jubilee year after the Assyrian invasion and concerning the possible suspension of the sabbath year during the Babylonian Captivity.

    All of the relatively few biblical texts that might give some insight as to where certain events might have happened in relation to a sabbath year are ambiguous and the various interpretations are disputed.

    7. How it is that God has not been imposing Shemitah judgments upon Israel and the Jewish people, who are obligated in the Mosaic Law to observe the Shemitah year, while at the same time, he has been imposing various Shemitah judgments upon America over the last 100 years or so, when our nation does not have any obligation to observe the Shemitah years (as rightly affirmed by Jonathan Cahn).

    Again there is too much fluff and false teaching for the shemitah to be taken seriously. Cahn has lied saying he does not study or use kabbalah and Zohar as a reference or even preaching from it but then someone found a sermon of him quoting from the Zohar extensively.

    For those follow Cahn and call him a prophet they are wrong. On the numerous TV shows he is given the title of prophet and Cahn has NEVER corrected the TV host saying he is not. That should tell you something right there.

    BTW there are also claims that Cahn bought his way on the New York Times best seller list as have some other ‘christian’ authors have done. I wonder if Cahn used the tithes from his church to do so?

    Hmmm…

      Thanks Stephen for your detailed analysis – a good read. Even as a solid believer and follower of God and His son Jesus, I am sometimes guilty of getting caught up in the hyperbole. Even so, I remain watchful, knowing that man’s wisdom (including yours and Cahn’s) is not to be fully trusted.

    The banksters were bailed out, but not the people who actually labor for their money.We should all receive compensation from the crimes against the people in the formation of the Federal Reserve, which consolidated power to the few. Why aren’t the religious citing the following scripture,”? We don’t need to do it every 7 years, but how about now???
    Deuteronomy 15:1
    The Seventh Year
    1″At the end of every seven years you shall grant a remission of debts. 2″This is the manner of remission: every creditor shall release what he has loaned to his neighbor; he shall not exact it of his neighbor and his brother, because the LORD’S remission has been proclaimed.

    Can you imagine the positive results of allowing a debt jubilee throughout our land? One of my neighbors said this would be unfair, as some have more debt than others. This is a selfish response. I have little debt compared to most, but I would love to see struggling Americans receive relief from debt.

    There is a connection here and I’m an atheist. Let’s be clear about the term atheist for 1 minute. Atheists are often given the same treatment as religious people. I actually as an atheist agree with many things in the bible. But I don’t believe in god, doesn’t mean I don’t think he exists. Confused yet? What it means is I will live a life and do good to others, and promote peace. If that makes me in trouble down the road so be it, that is a choice I made.

    But this article to me points out something that is very clear. It’s not what I believe in that counts, it is what other people believe in. I didn’t believe in 2012 because there wasn’t enough evidence. The same can be said for Nibaru and many other things.

    What matters is there is a bunch of people who believe in this, and believe in rituals who have lots of money in stock markets around the world. They are going to sell ahead of this, and a panic will begin. That is my theory on why this will happen, I don’t believe it is because of the wrath of god. But I’ve been proved wrong before, so we will see.

    Jonathan Cahn describes a possible 7 year business cycle in his book.
    There do seem to be coincidences with respect to the business or boom-bust cycle.
    The only cycle I am aware of is the eleven year solar cycle of solar max and minimums. I’m not sure how that would relate to the 7 year economic cycles.
    Clement Juglar, a French economist first identified 7 to 11 year business cycles in 1860, although he didn’t claim it would occur with regularity.
    Perhaps the 7 year cycle Johathan Cahn has written about is a segment or variation of the 7 to 11 year business cycle first described by Clement Juglar, and is related to the eleven year solar cycle, which causes the solar output to vary somewhat as well as solar storms and sunspots.
    The solar cycle seems to be related to weather in the American Midwest, and possibly has some effect on weather in Australia as well. These relationships of the weather to the solar cycle have been investigated, but due to variability of the solar cycle, with solar changes sometimes being more intense with different cycles, they can’t be predicted with certainty.
    Cycles of economic activity also vary a great deal, so not every economic cycle will result in a recession or depression.
    Probably a more important question is if the FED has stabilized the business cycle, and brought about more stability to the economy than previous to its existence. It has been established since 1913, so there should be a lot of information about how the FED has performed in taming the business cycles.
    Certainly, business cycles or “boom-bust” cycles occur, but are difficult to predict, and probably don’t follow a calendar as much as responding to economic forces.

    Blacks and Arabs are not a Semitic people. Arabs would be outraged at the comment. I am sure a person who has NEVER lived in an Islamic or Jewish state, who possibly doesn’t speak either language or can trace there blood line back to either culture stated this untruth. And also, black who? African, Caribbean, South American would tell you no. But the blacks, I have encountered in America, would possibly tell anyone yes. But cannot even begin to trace.

    Here”s a little poem for everyone! Oh ya, this was written in1983.

    We need to understand, what is happening in our land.
    It’s been written in His Word, though many have not heard.
    They will come saying
    “ Peace and safety,”
    and many will join into their unity.
    A one world government of all,
    and by it many shall fall.
    They’ll remove our U.S. constitution, solve all our problems with a false illusion.
    They’ll introduce a new identification,
    with a computer they’ll store all information.
    There will also be a one world religion,
    those who don’t join will be under government conviction.
    A holocaust will soon take place,

    those who are not one will be eliminated from the race.
    The Bible has foretold all of this, those who read it and believe it realize this. But millions and billions will be deceived, and the new I.D. mark they’ll eagerly receive. Written in 1986

    Michael, the facts are “crazy hipped” and there are too many
    counter-arguments to the theory that God talks and acts through the
    markets. This argument about the “Shemitah” year would not be even accepted by the majority of mainstream groupings of the Jews or the Christians, and finally, this theory would be apriori rejected by any agnostics or atheists.

    The only question that stands out on the last flimsy thread is the
    question of “raw facts” that seemingly connects 1+1 = 4;
    the prophecy and the Shemitah year speaks through the market “crushes”? How is this possible?

    Since the informed majority knows very well that the
    modern markets are interdependent on the digital transition systems,
    their genetic algorithm predictions that influence the markets’
    decisions tremendously might lead to the argument that markets
    “behave” to some extent aligned with programmed computer
    systems, the question is: have actually “The Shemitah Year
    logic” been programmed into the present market systems, when the system is showing serious signs of weakness? If so, the question
    would be by whom and why? Is it the cycle based on a few dates of the greatest market crushes/changes in a recent history that have been fed into the programming systems and these patterning has become a part of the system simply because they’ve occurred on the Shemitah year dates? Or is it possible to go so far to argue that the genetic algorithms would be programmed to achieve the alignment with the belief system of the religious prophecy expressing the worldview of religions of the book? What would be a purpose of such programming?

    The political theology is one of the inherited logical systems of the
    religions of the book, and is one of the “crazy”
    possibilities that the genetic algorithms could inherit this logical feature with programming fed-in systems. Not Sure. I threw at the dark screen just one of a few flaring darts.

    Does anybody really believe that is possible to drag
    the all-powerful, all-knowing, and just God to play roulette at the
    market place? I know at least one guy; should I quote “The Mad Man,”
    Nietzsche’s “Death of God”?

    tick tock, TICK TOCK
    Only God gives signs that involve the sun, moon and stars.
    Signs that warn us to repent and return to God OR face his wrath.
    So what do you think we are going to do?
    We are going to receive God’s Judgment on America – The World.

    Now days you can pick any month you want to and disasters will happen and are happening,,,and Yes how does the stock market crash relate to relinquishing anyones debt?,,,,all hocus pocus made up by man..

  • stephen

    So the shemitah that Jonathan Cahn says applies to the U.S. because the market crashed 7% (actually the stock market dipped and later recovered). But is that the truth? Actually figure for 17 Sept 2001 was 6.98%. The other dates are rounded up and down; its unfortunate that Jonathan Cahn makes claims about a total stock market crash but the bible says the shemitah was ONLY given to Israel and there are no prophesies about it applying to any other nation.
    Interesting.

    Also interesting is the 6.98% dip in the stock market… does that mean God does not do what He says He will? Or that the U.S. is only 6.98% bad so the market only dipped that amount?

    Another interesting point – because the shemitah is a release of DEBTS but it’s not mandatory for foreigners creates a problem for Cahn too. Then there is the OPTION for Jews to release debts of foreigners – again something Cahn does not talk about even though it’s clearly shown in scripture.

    “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts. 2 And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the Lord’s release. 3 Of a foreigner you may require it; but you shall give up your claim to what is owed by your brother, 4 except when there may be no poor among you; for the Lord will greatly bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance—“ Deut 15:1-4

    BTW the shemitah is a release of debts, not stock market. If you look at the consumer and govt debt levels from 1930 to present, there is no decrease or wiping away of any debts. But what was the result of the crash… err dip in the market in 2008? There was a 700 million dollar bailout that was placed upon the backs of citizens via taxes, which resulted in more govt debt and more consumer debt. I wonder Cahn doesn’t bring up that info in his books & DVDs?

    Cahn also states the “wake” of the shemitah destroys economies and people are ravaged by the lack of food but again scripture disagrees with Cahn. Yes the 7th year is to lie fallow but look what happens in the 6th year…

    “‘And if you say, “What shall we eat in the seventh year, since we shall not sow nor gather in our produce?”21 Then I will command My blessing on you in the sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years. 22 And you shall sow in the
    eighth year, and eat old produce until the ninth year; until its produce comes in, you shall eat of the old harvest.”
    Leviticus 25:20-22

    Notice that if they observe shemitah there would be no famine, hunger or lack of money because God would increase the 6th year harvest 3x its normal amount. If they disobeyed the shemitah, they would only harvest that years amount. Either way it would not wreck their society.

    I bet Cahn is already making excuses for when Sept 2015 passes and there is no total collapse.

    Be careful whom you follow – let it be no man but the Father, the Messiah and the Holy Spirit – all of which are never in conflict with the scriptures.

    Those that cling to things like Jonathan Cahn teaches is false teaching – so many will fall away because no total collapse will happen by the end of September 2015.

    Take note and get back to what the bible really teaches.

    The Babylonian calendar with Jewish Holy Days start in September or October and repeat at the same time one year later, from one Rosh ha Shanah to another. Much detail left out. The Hebrew God prophesied a Shemitah & Jubilee would occur every 49 years, some of those periods were uneventful. October 2 or 3, 2016 may be the end of the Age of Pisces, the Fish. Big events are coming. Look at 11/1917 & 6/1967 regarding Jerusalem. The Old World Order Oligarchy will fall. Elizabeth Windsor / Papacy will be exposed for her / their evil selves.
