THE  MYSTERY  OF  THE  SHEMITAH


by  Jonathan  Cahn

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

Joel 1:15-20 warns us that the Last Days will usher in economic catastrophes. "The Day of the Lord is near...The seeds   ' are shriveled beneath the clods. The storehouses are in ruins, the granaries have been broken down, for the grain has     J dried up..." (Joel 1:15-17). In this timely article, biblical expert Jonathan Cahn helps us understand the prophesied economic disasters—and prepare. "For in the days ahead, "he writes, "it is crucial that we become all the more steadfast and immoveable, rooted and grounded upon Him who will not be moved and who can never be shaken."


Is  it  possible  that  there  exists  a  mystery  over  three  thousand  years  old,  a  mystery  that  begins  in  the  sands  of  Sinai,  and  which  lies  behind  the  fall  of  Wall  Street,  the  collapse  of  the  American  and  world  economies,  the  attack  of  9/11,  the  rise  of  nations,  the  fall  of  nations,  and  events  which  have  not  yet  happened  but  are  yet  to  take  place?  Is  it  possible  that  this  mystery  has  pinpointed  the  exact  time,  down  to  dates  and  hours  of  some  of  the  most  critical  events  of  modern  times?  And  does  this  mystery  hold  the  secret  to  what  is  coming  on  America  and  the  world?


THE  MYSTERY  GROWS  EVEN  BIGGER


The mystery of the Shemitah first appeared as one of the fourteen mysteries of The Harbinger. Ever since its publication, I've been deluged with questions as to when the next Shemitah will take place and what will happen when it does. That time has now come.


Only in the last few months have I realized how incredibly cataclysmic and world-changing this mystery is. Long before 9/11, the mystery of the Shemitah was at work—affecting virtually everything. The ancient mystery lies behind everything from the First World War, the collapse of empires, the Second World War, the Holocaust, the Cold War, the rise of America, 9/11, and things yet to come—including the potential fall of America and the American age. It has affected the bank accounts of everyone reading this article—and it will affect their future.


THE SEVEN-YEAR SHAKING


The mystery of the Shemitah began on Mt. Sinai. The Shemitah took place every seven years. It was the year of "release" or "rest," the Sabbath Year. During the Shemitah, all work on the land came to an end, all buying or selling of the fruits of the land would cease. It was an economic cessation. On the last day of the Sabbath Year would come the climax—on the Hebrew day of Elul 29—when all the nations debts would be wiped out, a massive financial nullification.


The Shemitah was meant to be a blessing. But as Israel turned away from God, the Shemitah would turn from blessing to a sign of judgment against a nation that had driven God out of its life. That sign is now manifesting in America. The mystery determined the exact timing of 9/11. In 2001, it ordained the timing of the greatest stock market crash in American history, as Wall Street collapsed, and financial accounts were wiped clean on Elul 29, the Shemitah's last and climactic Day of Nullification, when according to the ancient biblical command, a nations financial accounts are to be wiped clean. Seven years later—seven Hebrew years to the day, the hour, even the minute—Wall Street collapsed again—on the same biblical day—the Day of Nullification —determined by the Shemitah. The precision of this ancient biblical mystery is beyond stunning. And yet even this is only the beginning.


FROM MT. SINAI TO THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE


The mystery is even bigger. In the past forty years, there have been five major long-term financial and economic collapses. Are any of them linked to the mystery of the Shemitah? The answer is—100 percent of them are joined to the mystery. Of the greatest long-term collapses in American history, the majority are linked to the ancient mystery. Of the top ten percentage crashes in Wall Street, the majority are linked to the ancient mystery. Of the top five greatest stock market point crashes, 100 percent of them are linked to the mystery of the Shemitah.


THE TOWERS, THE KINGDOMS, AND THE END


And the mystery grows even bigger. One of the revelations in my new book, The Shemitah, is "The Mystery of the Towers," a mystery that marks the rise of America and foreshadows its fall. Another, entitled "The Rise and Fall of Nations," reveals how the ancient biblical mystery ushered in the collapse of Empires, the Atomic Age, the Cold War, and what's happening right now. Yet another concerns the Seventh Shemitah, a mystery that goes back to the Temple's destruction in 70 A.D., lies behind the greatest events of the End Times, and is potentially coming soon.


THE SHEMITAH AND WHAT LIES AHEAD


What will the present year of the Shemitah bring? On one hand, we must be careful about putting God in a box. He doesn't have to do anything during this time or when we think He must. On the other hand, we should be altogether ready. It is worthy of note that the remaining time of blood moons converges with the year of the Shemitah, even climaxing in the same month. If something of significance is going to take place in the year of the Shemitah, the general pattern is that it will likely take place toward the latter part, the time of its climactic "Day of Nullification,'' which will take place September 13, 2015.


Whether it happens during the Shemitah or beyond it, I believe a great shaking is coming to this nation and to the world, a shaking that will involve the financial realm, the economic realm, and more. Interestingly, the word Shemitah can be translated as "the shaking," "the fall," "the overthrow" "the nullification," and "the collapse." For this reason I wrote The Mystery of the Shemitah, that those who would hear would be ready and prepared.


For in the days ahead, it is crucial that we become all the more steadfast and immoveable, rooted and grounded upon Him who will not be moved and who can never be shaken.

I  HAVE  GIVEN  YOU  THE  FULL  ARTICLE  AS  IT  APPEARED  IN  "JEWISH  VOICE  TODAY"  November/December  2014.


First:  I  have  debunked  the  author's  The  Harbinger  on  my  website,  showing  he  does  not  understand  the  section  of  Jeremiah  he  uses,  and  that  his  ideas  of  9/11  being  in  Bible  prophecy,  are  false,  silly,  and  very  misguided.


Second: Notice  in  this  article  he  allows  that  what  he  has  written  in  his  new  book,  may  not  happen  before  Sept. 13th  2015.  So  his  so-called  "date  setting"  he  has  already  disallowed  for;  meaning  he  may  not  have  what  he  expounds  to  you  in  his  new  book,  correct.  And  I  can  tell  you  he  DOES  NOT have  it  correct.  This  7  year  time  cycle  and  a  Sabbath  7th  year [which  for  him  and  others  we  are  now  into]  has  no  part  in  Bible  prophecy.  It  is  just  NOT  in  the  Bible;  it  is  not  one  of  the  signs  Jesus  said  we  are  to  watch  for  to  bring  us  to  the  end  of  this  age  and  His  return.  Paul  does  not  mention  it  in  his  prophecies;  John  does  not  mention  it  in  the  book  of  Revelation.  Jesus  sure  did  not  talk  about  it.  This  idea  of  "shemitah"  is  a  man-made  idea,  drummed  up  by  the  imagination  of  a  men's  minds.


Third:  The  downfall  of  America [which  one  day  will  come,  with  most  of  the  Western  world]  is  not  a  downfall  through  "economics"  -  the  book  of  Ezekiel  makes  it  very  clear  as  to  how  the  House  of  Israel  and  House  of  Judah,  will  fall  in  the  last  days [see  my  study  expounding  the  book  of  Ezekiel]  and  it  will  have  nothing  to  do  with  some  first  collapse  with  economy,  as  Cahn  wants  you  to  believe.


Fourth:  Cahn  and  anyone  can  sit  down  and  figure  all  kinds  of  past  world  events  and  tie  them  in  to  some  man-made  grid  of  dates.  Date  setting  for  this  and  that  is  nothing  new;  it  has  been  done  by  others  down  through  the  centuries;  they  had  a  big  date  setting  time  in  1844,  revivals  were  held  about  it.  The  band  wagon  was  rolling;  it  all  came  to  a  crashing  false  doctrine.  the  blind  leading  the  blind.


Fifth: Cahn  has  got  tens  of  thousands  hooked  on  his  The  Harbinger  book;  so  why  not  follow  it  up  with  another,  as  a  supposedly  7th  liberty  year [again  man-made  with  the  series  of  7  years  by  Cahn  and  others]  is  what  we  are  told  we  are  entering.  Hence  going  back  in  SEVENS  you  can  find  some  event  that  happened,  if  you  are  really  wanting  to  find  it;  so  adding  what  weight  it  gives  to  have  thousands  buying  his  book  once  more.


IT  FILLS  HIS  BANK  ACCOUNT,  OR  AS  THEY  SAY,  HE  IS  LAUGHING  ALL  THE  WAY  TO  THE  BANK  WITH  YOUR  MONEY.


NOW  I'LL  GIVE  YOU  A  PROPHECY:  NOTHING  THAT  CAHN  TEACHES  WILL  HAPPEN  THIS  COMING  INVENTED  7TH  YEAR  OF  LIBERTY.  ALL  THE  WAY  TO  SEPT.  13TH  2015  WILL  BE  A  REGULAR  YEAR.....WITH  WARS,  EARTHQUAKES,  DRAUGHTS,  FAMINE,  RELIGIOUS  DECEPTIONS,  WILD  PROPHETIC  IDEAS  SHOUTED  OUT,  AND  THE  USA  WILL  HAVE  NO  "ECONOMIC"  BLOW-OUT.


Sixth:  The  prophecy  of  Joel  1:15-20  that  the  above  article  starts  with,  is  to  do  with  the  "DAY  OF  THE  LORD"  -  and  people  like  Cahn  have  no  clue  as  to  how  to  put  together  the  verses  on  the  "Great  Tribulation"  the  "Heavenly  Signs"  and  the  "Day  of  the  Lord."

The  USA  AND  OTHER  WESTERN  NATIONS  will  have  ALREADY  been  destroyed  by  the  time  of  the  DAY  OF  THE  LORD  arrives.  And  that  destruction  will  NOT  be  by  some  "economic"  meltdown.  Of  course  there  will  be  NO  economics  for  those  nations  destroyed.  But  they  will  not  be  destroyed  by  an  economic  bust.


THESE  "CHRISTIAN"  JEWS, AND  THE  FUNDAMENTAL  PROTESTANT  PROPHETS,  JUST  DO  NOT  KNOW  WHAT  THEY  ARE  TALKING  ABOUT  WHEN  IT  COMES  TO  BIBLE  END  TIME  PROPHECIES.
