The Shemitah is not going away, nor is it waning. God’s 3000-year-old promise is still true today.
The Shemitah is a cycle. It is predictable and unchanging. As this current Shemitah progresses, remember that God is a God of organization and purpose. Everything He does is for a reason.
We must not think that America is the only country being affected by the happenings of the Shemitah. Pray for other countries as they go through the Sabbath year of release and rest.
It is not bound by anything. The Shemitah permeates everything humanity has built and created. It shows that there is nothing we have that is not under God’s dominion.



Stock market tumbles, Ebola comes to U.S., ISIS on move in Iraq


Blood moons, plummeting stock markets and a growing Ebola pandemic dominated the headlines this past week.
If that’s not enough cause for concern, there’s an army of Islamic terrorists bearing down on the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
None of this should come as a surprise to those who have read “The Mystery of the Shemitah” by Jonathan Cahn, a messianic rabbi and Bible teacher from New Jersey who also authored the best-selling Christian book “The Harbinger” in 2012.

Without a doubt, the Shemitah year, which kicked off on Sept. 25, has begun with a blast of bad news.
Cahn predicted in “The Harbinger” that America would come under judgment in the wake of the 9/11 attacks because, rather than being humbled and repentant, the nation doubled down on abortions, pornography and the removal of prayer and all things Christian from the public square.
In the “Shemitah,” he reveals that judgment comes to a backslidden nation in accordance with a seven-year cycle that correlates with the Hebrew calendar. In Leviticus 25, God commanded the Israelites to observe a Sabbath year once every seven years in which they would let their land lie fallow, while in Deuteronomy 15 He instructed them to cancel debts in line with this same seven-year timetable.
Cahn explains that the seven-year cycles can manifest as blessings as long as a nation follows the will of God. But for those that started out under God only to later stray, the Shemitah can bring a series of ever harsher judgments, usually striking in the financial realm and spilling over into the political and military arenas.

“In The Mystery of the Shemitah – I show how the Shemitah has caused financial and economic collapse throughout modern times,” Cahn told WND. “And the phenomenon has been intensifying – with the last two Shemitahs manifesting the phenomenon with uncanny precision.”
The two previous Shemitah years occurred in 2000-2001 and 2007-2008.
Before the ultimate judgment comes, God often sends a series of warnings or “shakings” meant to get the attention of believers and nonbelievers alike.
The Shemitah year was also called the year of “release” in biblical times because the land was allowed to rest and the financial accounts were wiped clean once every seven years.
Only two weeks into the new Shemitah year of 2014-2015, the U.S. stock market has already shed hundreds of points.

Theresa Yarosh, founder and president of Macro Wealth Management LLC in Paramus, New Jersey, said she has reviewed the accuracy of the patterns laid out in Cahn’s book, “The Mystery of the Shemitah.”
“It is accurate based on underlying market patterns and economics,” Yarosh said. “I traced the pattern all the way back to 1916. Jonathan had the question as to why some of the (seven-year) cycles are more powerful than others and that’s because you have to apply the debt cycle and some (Shemitahs) have more debt to be worked out than others.”
She said the financial meltdowns of 2001 and 2008, as bad as they were, did not fully correct the debt bubbles that had built up.
“Now we’re in another one. Where his book is strong is in the (Shemitah’s) need for a full release of the debts. The last two recessions did not correct that,” Yarosh said.

Similarities to 1930s Depression
Yarosh sees a debt cycle peak being built up similar to that of 1933. The initial market crash occurred in 1929 and then came the deleveraging of the 1930s with a secondary downturn in the market in 1938.
That’s when the financial reckoning was completed.
“The period we’re in now is almost like the Roaring Twenties with a build up of enormous margin debt,” Yarosh said. “My advice would be to balance out things that have guarantees with things that don’t. It’s like the story of the tortoise and the hare.   Slow and steady wins the race with a focus on risk management.”
Because of the conservative economic model Yarosh works with, she is not concerned with where the market is headed.
“I have clients that have a lot of cash, who are very liquid,” she said. “So, I would say, have sufficient liquidity, at least three to six months of living expenses in cash, and about 50 percent of your gross income should be liquid. That’s a high amount of liquidity. Most investors don’t have that.”
Billionaires investors like Warren Buffet, Marc Faber, Donald Trump, Peter Schiff and others have all made statements recently that they see a major market correction coming and that it could be worse than 2008. Faber warns of “massive wealth destruction” coming to America in which he predicts “well-to-do people will lose up to 50 percent of their wealth.”
Yarosh sees another troubling sign that smaller investors might want to pay attention to: The ultra wealthy are hording cash.

According to the new Billionaire Census from Wealth-X and UBS, the world’s billionaires are holding an average of $600 million in cash — greater than the gross domestic product of Dominica. That marks a jump of $60 million from a year ago and translates into billionaires’ holding an average of 19 percent of their net worth in cash.   This increased liquidity signals that many billionaires are keeping their money on the sidelines and waiting for the optimal moment to make further investments.
“These are people who know what’s going on, who see things on a very big level, and it’s not good,” Yarosh said.

Yarosh said she has studied economics and economic patterns for more than 20 years but Cahn’s research has shed light on a lot of questions.

“There has always been something to the ‘autumn phenomenon,’” she said, referring to the long-held suspicion among investors that crashes tend to happen in September and October. “And people for years have wondered why that is. I think Jonathan has tied it to the Hebrew calendar and the Bible.”
And that message is getting out to more and more readers.

According to Publisher’s Weekly’s ranking all paperbacks fiction and nonfiction, “The Mystery of the Shemitah” is ranked fifth in the world in sales.

The New York Times recently began a new best seller list for religious titles, which had Oprah Winfrey’s latest book ranked as number one,  followed by Cahn’s “Shemitah” book.
Signs of things to come for U.S. economy?
Cahn told WND that the loss of more than 260 points in the Dow Jones Industrials on the very first day of the Shemitah year could be the “first fruits” of more market mayhem over the next 12 months.The market lost another 449 points over a two-day period, Oct. 9-10, coinciding with the opening of the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles.

But the shakings brought on by the Shemitah are not limited to the financial realm.
On the first day of the Shemitah year, Sept. 25, the first case of Ebola was diagnosed on U.S. soil, when Thomas Eric Duncan checked into a hospital in Dallas, Texas. Duncan died on Oct. 8, the day that a blood moon appeared in the sky, the second of a rare series of four lunar eclipses that will occur on Jewish High Holy Days between autumn of 2014 and autumn of 2015.

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.

In the Shemitah of 2000-20001, the beginning marked a sudden downturn of production. Its culmination came in the second week of September, 2001, the week that saw the calamity of 9/11 and the greatest stock market collapse in history to that date.
In the Shemitah of 2007-2008, it’s beginning saw a stock market that had been rising for years, suddenly reverse course and begin to descend. The culmination came in September 2008 with the global financial implosion, the collapse of Wall Street on Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, marking the greatest one day crash in stock market history, followed by the Great Recession.
“In the book I’ve marked out the Shemitah’s beginning – and many were watching to see if anything significant would take place,” Cahn told WND. “What happened with this Shemitah was even more dramatic than in the past. Within two days of the Shemitah’s start, the stock market began to descend. On the Shemitah’s very first day, Wall Street plunged over 260 points. It was the event that marked the beginning.

“The Mystery of the Shemitah would say this: What we have witnessed on Wall Street would appear to be either the beginning of a phenomenon that will reach its crescendo in the Shemitah’s latter part or end, or an early phenomenon and foreshadow of what will come at the end.”

The Shemitah, Financial Collapse, and You Most of the worst terrorist attacks and financial collapses in American history are tied to the Shemitah. But the pinpoint connections between all of these events are incredible. In the video below, Jonathan Cahn—Messianic rabbi and New York Timesbest-selling author of the runaway best-sellers The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah—details the amazing line of events from the past century tied to this phenomenon.
As we enter the next Shemitah year, discover for yourself how supernaturally precise this centuries-long prophetic pattern is, and what it could mean for your family, for America, and for the world.

The love of God and His salvation will not fall, nor collapse, nor fail, but will remain forever. The only thing that will matter is whether we sought Him, found Him, and became right with Him.

Tishri is the most holy month in the Hebrew calendar. It is the seventh month of the year, whereas the Shemitah is the seventh year. The themes of the month match those of the Shemitah. Both speak of God’s sovereignty and His judgment. Both call the nation back to God.
The fourth key to understanding the Shemitah is America’s connection with Israel. Our country is joined to the pattern of Israel and is now going through what the ancient nation went through before its destruction.

CHARISMA NEWS EXCLUSIVE~ The Mystery of the Shemitah Revealed (JONATHAN CAHN 9/30/14)

It is well known that, for the nation of Israel, every seventh day was called "the Sabbath." The Sabbath was unique among days. The Israelites were commanded to keep it separate and distinct from the other six days of the week. It was holy. It was the Lord's Day. On the Sabbath all regular work and all worldly endeavors were to cease. The Sabbath was the day of rest, to be devoted solely to the Lord.
But what is not well known is that the Sabbath was not only a day but also a year. As every seventh day was the Sabbath day, so every seventh year was the Sabbath year.
The Sabbath year was likewise to be kept separate and distinct from the six years that preceded it. It was to be a holy year, a year specially devoted to the Lord. During the Sabbath year there was to be no working of the land. All sowing and reaping, all plowing and planting, all gathering and harvesting had to cease by the end of the sixth year.
During the Sabbath year it was not only for the people to rest, but also the land. The fields would lie fallow, the vineyards untended, and the groves unkept. The land itself would observe its own Sabbath to the Lord.
During the Sabbath year the people of Israel were to leave their fields, vineyards, and groves open for the poor. For the duration of the year the land belonged, in effect, to everyone. And whatever grew of its own accord was called hefker, meaning, "without an owner." So during the Sabbath year the land, in effect, belonged to everyone and no one at the same time.
Just as striking as what happened to the land during the Sabbath year was what happened to the people on the last day of that year:
"At the end of every seven years" refers to the last day of the Sabbath year. Elul was the last month of the Hebrew civil year, and the twenty-ninth day was the last day of Elul. So on Elul 29,
the very last day of the Sabbath year, a sweeping transformation took place in the nation's financial realm. Everyone who owed a debt was released. And every creditor had to release the debt owed. So on Elul 29 all credit was erased and all debt was wiped away. The nation's financial accounts were, in effect, wiped clean. It was Israel's day of financial nullification and remission.
In the Hebrew reckoning of time, each day begins not with the morning but with the night. This goes back to Genesis 1, when the account of Creation records that there was first darkness, night, and then the day. So every Hebrew day begins with the night before the day. And since night begins with sunset, every Hebrew day begins at sunset. Therefore the moment that all debts had to be reckoned as wiped away was the sunset of Elul 29.
In English, the Elul 29 command ordains that every creditor shall "grant a release." But the original Hebrew commands every creditor to make a "shemitah." In those first two verses of Deuteronomy 15 the word shemitah appears no fewer than four times. At the end of the second verse it is written, "Because it is called the Lord's release." In Hebrew it is called the Lord's "Shemitah."
The word shemitah is most often translated as "the release" or "the remission." The English word remission is defined as "the cancellation or reduction of a debt or penalty." The Shemitah of ancient Israel refers not only to the releasing of the land but also to the nullification of debt and credit ordained by God and performed on a massive nationwide scale.
Shemitah became the name of the last day of the Sabbath year, Elul 29, the Day of Remission. But it also became the name of the Sabbath year in its entirety. The seventh year would become known as the Year of the Shemitah, or simply, the Shemitah. The Year of the Shemitah would begin with the releasing of the land and end with the Day of Remission, when the people would themselves be released.
So the word shemitah covers both the seventh year and the last day of that year. There's a reason for that. That last day of Elul 29 is the year's crescendo, its peak and culmination— the remission of the Year of Remission. In a sense, everything about the Shemitah year builds up to that final day, when everything is released, remitted, and wiped away in one day—or, more specifically—to the eve of that day, to the final sunset.

Dear Friend, 

A few months ago, I wrote to you about a massive transformation taking place in America - the  
same which took place in ancient Israel in its last days - a nation calling evil ‘good.’ But what  
happens when a nation calls evil ‘good’? It will begin to call good ‘evil’....

Word for the Month & for Wednesday, Oct. 1
Scripture: Gen. 2:21-24
See Messages: The Dark Trinity

In the days of Elijah, the nation that had once known God metamorphosed. The people turned away from the God of their fathers and turned to Baal. They promoted sexual immorality. They lifted up their children as sacrifices. They called evil 'good,' -- and then good 'evil.' The prophets of Baal, who had once been viewed with disfavor, now were placed in positions of power. They turned their fury and vengeance on those who had remained faithful to the God of Israel, the prophets and the righteous. They persecuted, hunted, and drove them into hiding.
America had also once known God. And America is likewise undergoing a metamorphosis. It is rapidly turning from the God of its founders. It is likewise promoting sexual immorality. It is likewise spilling the blood of its unborn children. And those who oppose God's Word are increasingly lifted up as heroes, icons, leaders, and placed in positions of power and influence. The result is a growing persecution of those who remain faithful to the God of the Bible. What has been called "tolerance" worked only in one direction -- tolerance for that which is against the Bible.
Not long ago, most Americans believed in and upheld the standard and definition of marriage as between a man and a woman. But at breakneck speed, those who believe what has always been believed, and what the majority believed until recently -- are now the targets of witch hunts.
One of the most public of these witch hunts involved the CEO of Mozilla, developer of the Firefox browser, Brendan Eich. Shortly after assuming his position in his company, a firestorm broke out over his past. What had he done? A criminal act? An act of immorality? He had, years before, contributed to a campaign to uphold the biblical definition of marriage. Because of this contribution, because of upholding the definition of marriage as in the Bible and as in the thousands of years of human history, members of gay advocacy groups demanded he be punished and lose his job.
His company, the company he, himself had helped to create, apparently promptly went along with the cries for retribution -- and announced Eich's "resignation" soon after, offering profuse apologies for not, in effect, firing him even faster.
How did these groups know of Eich's private contribution? Members of the United States government had leaked the names of those who had contributed to the purpose of upholding marriage as it has always been known.
And, if you haven't been aware, these incidents are becoming increasingly common. The head of Chick-fil-a, found his entire franchise boycotted, blacklisted, and vilified for simply saying he was in favor of traditional marriage. Recently, Phil Robertson of the television show Duck Dynasty, was promptly suspended from his own series for the crime of saying that he didn't believe in homosexuality.
If someone from America's past was told that one day people who believed that marriage was between a man and a woman would be punished for that belief -- they would find it unbelievable and apocalyptic. But it's real.
How will you respond in the time of your testing? Will you hide your faith? Or hold back? That would be the true sin. If the dark is growing darker, the lights must shine brighter. What did Elijah do? He stood in boldness, in truth, in courage, in God. And God blessed Him, anointed Him, and mightily used Him. You , my friend, do the same. Be strong this month and live without compromise. And may God greatly bless you as you do!

Your brother and co-laborer in His love and service,
