much-anticipated sequel by Jonathan Cahn is called “The
Mystery of the Shemitah” –
and it is certain to rock the world of financial speculators, stock
market traders and economists.
the stunning findings of the author who found jaw-dropping links
between the 9/11 terrorist attack and an otherwise obscure biblical
passage, Isaiah 9:10, is that 100 percent of the worst U.S. economic
calamities since World War II are all lined to the “Shemitah,”
the biblical Sabbath year, its wake or the biblical month of Tishri
in which the “Shemitah” falls.
Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” showed
that the economic crashes of 2001 and 2008 occurred on the last day
of the “Shemitah,” Elul 29 on the biblical calendar, the new book
examines other economic crashes of the last 60 years and finds
similar striking links to the pattern.
book, releasing Sept. 2, comes out on the eve of the next “Shemitah”
cycle, which ends Sept. 13, 2015 – a day that will also feature a
solar eclipse. The good news for Wall Street is that the date falls
on a Sunday, so the stock market will be closed.
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.
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.
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
top it off, “Shemitah” years are also grouped in sevens – with
the 50th year being a year of jubilee – or trumpet blast.
jubilee was something of a super Shemitah,” writes Cahn. “It was
the Shemitah taken to a new level. In the year of the Shemitah the
land rested – so too in the Year of Jubilee. In the year of the
Shemitah came release. But in the Year of Jubilee the release took on
new meaning. It was not simply the letting go of land or debt. In the
jubilee, slaves and prisoners were set free. It was thus the year of
formed from the Sept. 11 wreckage at Ground Zero in New York City
no one is certain when the year of jubilee is, Cahn presents evidence
that the next one may coincide with the end of the next Shemitah year
– again Sept. 13 on the Gregorian calendar. Cahn also looks at
the five greatest financial turning points of the past 40 years and
finds they are connected to the Shemitah cycle.
he puts it, “From the 40-year period beginning in 1973, every
single one of the five greatest financial and economic peaks and
collapses have converged, clustered and taken place according to the
set time of the Shemitah.”
very much more than natural is indeed going on,” concludes the
understated Cahn. “And the signs of the phenomenon all point to the
same ancient biblical mystery. If the collapse of the world’s stock
markets were an act of crime, the Shemitah would have long ago been
indicted for the evidence left at the crime scene. In its numbers,
its connections, its convergences, its percentages, its magnitude and
its consistency, the amount of fingerprints covering the financial
cataclysms of modern times is overwhelming.”
Mystery of the Shemitah” is
somewhat overwhelming, too. The economic coincidences are only part
of the story. The book also explores the rise and fall of kingdoms
and their connections with the Shemitah cycles – its connections
with World War I, World War II and the Cold War.
Cahn is careful not to predict what will happen in the coming
phenomenon may manifest in one cycle and not in another and then
again in the next,” he writes. “And the focus of the message is
not date-setting but the call of God to repentance and return. At the
same time, something of significance could take place, and it is wise
to note the times.”
