The shemittah and financial collapse.

Let’s see if I can try and put this together.
Wednesday evening we watched part 2 of Isaiah 9:10 – Judgment. This final installment had some eye-opening information.
Rabbi Cahn shared with us about the shemittah or the release. Two things would happen.
Every seven years Hebrews were required by Torah to let the land have a Sabbath rest; in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to the Lord. You shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. Lev 25:4
And at the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts. 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. Deut 15:1-2
This release always takes place on the Hebrew calendar of Elul 29.
In 2001 that day fell on September 17th, just 6 days after 9/11.
The stock market fell dramatically around the world. On this day at the end of this 7 year period, the US Dow dropped 7 percent!
It was one of the biggest drops in US history since the Great Depression.
Meanwhile in Israel they were releasing (shemittah) their debts.
7 years later, it is another Elul 29 – September 29, 2009 on the Gregorian calendar.
That month the financial trouble of the US was very evident, but on that particular day it plummeted to a loss of 777 points.
Meanwhile in Israel they were releasing (shemittah) their debts.
The Rabbi believes that this is part of the judgment against us and that our finances were “released” or allowed that Sabbath rest.
I find this very fascinating.
Just a quick fact, the Hebrew calendar is based on a lunar cycle so the months are 29 days in length; so every month begins with a new moon and the full moon will always fall on the 15th of any given month.
The day after Elul 29 is Tishrei 1 or Rosh Hashanah  – New Year. I usually refer to it by the celebration that takes place on that day, Yom Teruah – Feast of Trumpets.
If 2008 ended the 7-year period then the next 7-year period will be on Elul 29 in 2015, which is September 13 (which has a partial eclipse of the sun).
This is in the final phase of a tetrad, a succession of 4 total lunar eclipses. A tetrad is not an uncommon thing; the last one took place in 1967-68, when Jerusalem was reclaimed in the Six Day War.
The one before that was in 1949-50, right after Israel became a nation but during those years Israel had its first election for a Prime Minister and had several campaigns to return Jews back to Israel from other nations.
The interesting thing about these next “blood” moon eclipses is they all take place on Jewish Holydays. In the mix will be some solar eclipses, including an annular, a total, and a partial. This has happened before but when it did something significant happened with the Hebrew people or with Israel.

April 15, 2014 total moon Passover
April 29 2014 annular sun
Oct 8, 2014 total moon Feast of Tabernacles
Oct 23 2014 partial sun
Mar 20 2015 total sun
April 4 2015 total moon Passover
Sept 13 2015 partial sun Yom Teruah
Sep 28 2015 total moon Feast of Tabernacles

Now I’m not making any claims as to what will or will not happen.
However, Jesus gives us the best advice to live by in these changing times; Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. Luke 21:28

  1. The leaders rejected the ….?? you know the story. The only one who can stop this madness/mess is the ordained “seed” not egg(just buying time) of his people. Few know or will believe who that people actually is, some think they are lost or dissappeared of the planet. Try buried in the constitution. The only and yes only way is for the world ( major perpetraters-Germany,Italy,France and last but not least Spain, Africa, America ) to Repeent,Atone and pay Reparations(it must equal the weight of the crime) to the African Americans(Incl. Jamaicans,Brazilians,Hatians,ETC.) ThThen they must install a true representative of the TRUE ONE(from his SEED and not egg)dont try and fool the just one. Dont procrastinate to long because time is timed. Soon the above Victims of the crime will “will” and cast enough mental lots to give the true one enough authority to enter this realm on our behalf then its too late. Dont try and change because your about to lose everything beacause then everything you have will be taken and given to the offspring of guess who?? I know their are some leaders who still have something burning inside of them and maybe and just maybe they will have the essence to do the right thing for the sake of thhe children,women,and families. If not welcome to the “abomination of the desolation”. It’s show time. Only the truth just one will save us all!!!

  2. Something else to consider in the future…1947 (UN formally creates the State of Israel) + 70 = 2017

    Is not a generation 70 maybe 80 years according to the Word? Jesus said, “This generation shall all not pass away before the Son of Man returns. Will he find faith upon the earth?”

    So will he?????

  3. Reblogged this on shaynroby and commented:
    This post by Pastor Tim Swanson mentions the correlation between financial collapse in the United States and the 29th day of the month of Elul in the Hebrew calendar that is explained in the movie, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgement”. I recommend reading “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn as well. It contains much of the same material.

  4. Recently, Pastor Hagee detailed these 4 blood moons coming on the dates you have in your article in a three sermon series. One thing he mentioned that I take serious notice of. The blood moons are warnings for Israel while the solar eclipse is a warning to the world (when it comes to the prophectical rhealm). With all that Rabbi Cahn and Bill Salus have been blessed with to help us understand the harbingers related to U.S. (us as in us as a nation), and the coming war between Israel and her neighboring Islamic States according to Psalm 83 that bill Salus writes about, there’s something extreme coming, I believe. If one reads Rabbis Cahn’s books (The Harbinger and the Companion Book), the first ‘shaking’ of U.S. occurred on 9/11 for the bricks to fall – the towers, and the sycamore hewn (both the physical one AND its uprooting to take place on the very ground that George Washington and the first Congress went out to directly after his inauguration at the then capital city of our nation in New York City where he prayed that heaven’s smiles upon the new nation would not be taken away except that the nation turn from God). It’s fascinating on the one hand that the physical sycamore at the corner of ground zero and the cracking of federal halls’ foundation with the NYSE collapse occurred on 29 Elul 2001 which was Sept 17th while the very chapel remained standing on the same ground. Yet, apparently, on the other hand it’s STILL not enough to wake U.S. up! Then, the second shaking on Elul 29, 2008 (Sept 29) which was the second NYSE collapse of 777 points (and no bell rung because it somehow refused to that day) and is exactly 7 years 7 months and a drop of 7 % just as the shemitah is based on 7’s! NOW comes the additional warning signs in the heavens of the tetrad four blood moons with a solar eclipse in the middle that lead up to the next shemitah of Elul 29 2015 which is on Sept 13th! What’s it gotta take folks? A THIRD ‘shaking’ WITH heavenly billboarded signage just about amounting to a fireworks display to get your attention?! What I’m really getting at here is the following. With all the above occurring, meanwhile, back in the middle-east, Psalm 83’s prophecy of Israel’s having enough of threats made against her to the point that Israel kicks some serious rear end possibly to the point of nuking Damascus (if one reads Bill Salus’ book ‘Psalm 83) somewhere in there…..all this leading up to Ezekial 38 and 39 (ARMAGEDDON)! PEOPLE…WAKE UP!!! God’s on the main line and YOU’RE NOT LISTENING!!! Jesus IS LORD!!! Being ‘ready’ to head to the hills where your ‘doomsday prepper’ survival ‘fortress of solitude’ is located won’t amount to anything more than the hill of beans you’ve got stored there when THIS ONE coming directly from the throne of God himself is hurled at Earth!!! The way I see it, YOU have three choices: 1. Be rapture-ready if you are already saved. 2. Remain ignorant (or defiant) and face the tribulation as a martyr IF you finally accept Jesus Christ as YOUR PERSONAL LORD AND SAVIOUR in that terrible time, OR 3. Defiantly remain ignorant and end up being tossed in the lake of fire!!! The choice is yours….pray for forgiveness and YOUR salvation, pray for America, and pray for Israel! The TIME IS SHORT AND THE FINAL SECONDS ARE TICKING AWAY! ACCEPT Christ’s FREE GIFT of salvation or be destroyed and that’s about as simple as it gets!

  5. Hi, I’m a SouthAfrican believer in Jesus Christ and have such an urgency in me that people must wake up and turn back to God and accept Jesus as ther Lord and Saviour! Time is running short!

    There are NO reparations in Shemitta. That’s the point… It’s about FORGIVENESS of debt.

    If, by the end, of the end of 29 Elul, you are still holding a debt on your books… Well… May G/d have mercy upon you.

  7. The Lord is your place of safety. All who call on the name of the Lord will be saved. The warnings have come again and again. The choice is yours. We all have free will. Choose you this day who you will serve.

    Zechariah 11:17.
    Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

    Zechariah 12:3
    New King James Version (NKJV)
    3 And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.

  8. Well done recapping Rabbi Cahn’s teaching and warning.

    I want to be a nit-picker here and point out one small mistake in your post – Tishrei 1 (the New Year) is called “Rosh Hashanah”.

    Yom Kippur, the Day Of Atonement, happens 8 days afterwards.


  9. So, since Peter quoted Joel (Acts 2:20) on the Day of Pentecost, the Church Age began with a reference to the blood moons. Might it also end with those same blood moons?

  10. Acts2:20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

  12. I have begun to understand the importance of the Hebrew calendar, the blood moons(the last of the tetrad will be a supermoon), the Festival dates, and the history of events that have taken place on the Hebrew calendar. I am looking for as much research material as I can find (that is how I found your article) and I want to learn as much as possible. The next two years are going to be very significant, and I am wanting to help others who have ears to hear.

  13. Many national central bankers claim complete and total innocence to any international catastrophes such as war are a natural consequence of their policies. They say and write that their fractional reserve banking philosophies are sound and honest dealing with money. Then, why do they get so upset when some one like Abraham Lincoln or John F. Kennedy suggest that some other solution might work better and try to implement it? Like a no debt currency directed by central bankers. If they really believe in what they are doing why not let another philosophy be tried for once in the modern world? Letting others finance nations could prove eventually that only central bankers know what is best. Is it not a fact that these two American presidents were murdered because international bankers are really gangsters in disguise. I think the Hebrew prophet Jeremiah would not have anything nice to say to New York and London bankers in the 20 and 21 centuries. Judgment of the Hebrew God is over these evil men, they will get theirs in spades.

  14. What makes this Tetrad special…one thing might be that the 4 blood moon tetrad on 4 “Jewish Feast Days” began in the Chinese Year-of-the-Horse…(keep in mind the world recognizes that the Chinese have chronicled notable events of the Sun,Moon,Stars for centuries…may also be the ‘Kings of the East”)
    Ergo, the beginning of this significant Tetrad in the Year-of-the-Horse might be the connection we need to link the 4 blood moons to the appearance of the 4 horsemen found in Revelations which signals the start of the Time of Jacobs Troubles/early Birth Pangs/ Beginning of Sorrows/Tribulation/Great Tribulation… all of which follows the Signs in the Heavens (year of the Horse, root wood, 2014-2015)

    I don’t suppose the White horse rider (April 15th 2014 blood moon) will appear any time soon as the Caliph & the Caliphate have not yet arrived in the geo-political scene as yet
    And will not Appear until midway of the final week

    the 2nd Red horse & rider will be the 2nd blood-moon of 8 Oct 2014, so expect war, combat, etc. … the red horse rider comes to assist in establishing the re-born Caliphate

    the 3rd & 4th Blood-Moons correspond to the Black horse & Pale horse of the 4 horsemen

    I am still connecting the dots, and seeking the timeline….

  15. StUdio Musi, a quote from Wiki “This Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant was declared on 29 June 2014.” You might just be on to something here…

  16. The shmita year 2000-01 began quietly on rosh hashanah September 28 2000, and if it were not for Ariel Sharon visiting Josephs tomb on Temple Mount that day, it would have passed without ever being noticed. But instead, it was responsible for sparking what became known as the intifadah. Six weeks after that a general election took place that saw George W. Bush installed to the presidency, not by the electoral college but by the supreme court, months after the election took place.

    That very same shmita year ended September 18, 2001. Look carefully at the date. This is seven days after 9\11. If we use this as a template then we can expect this shmita year to start ‘relatively’ quietly on rosh hashanah this September and build to something much greater next fall.

    I have spent my whole adult life watching, waiting, and studying any and all materials that I thought would help in my studies and even though I feel prepared for what is coming, it still scares me seeing it all come to pass like this !! Even so, come quickly Lord, Amen.

  17. A great blog entry, Tim. Keep up the good work!

    Nothing at all to be afraid of – we are going to see our Lord Jesus in heaven! What a wonder! No need to fear, we have a great high priest named Jesus (Yeshua), and we are instructed to go boldly before the throne of grace. Grace, unmerited favour – you can’t earn His forgiveness or do anything to deserve it, or even keep it. He gives it to us as free gift.

    By the way, the final “blood (red) moon” will be centered over Jerusalem! And it will be a Harvest Moon, the largest of the year. It will be unmistakable to the people of Israel. They are still God’s covenanted people. Read Genesis 17, God Himself made a everlasting promise to bless Abraham’s physical descendants. Everlasting covenants made by God never come to an end, nor are they transferred to another group of people, not to the church, and not to Britain and America).

    God saw before the creation of the world the timing of events that would lead His people to recognize His soon coming. Anyone who refuses to seek Him will suffer a great delusion.

  18. I feel God`s presence. I don’t completely understand but I see the signs. I was born during the last tetrad of 1968, my legs swelled up on 10-04-13 and I haven’t worked but God has provided for me. This is also the date I married now divorced (10-04-97), the day my legs swelled is also the day I ran out of savings that I was living on. Since my divorce in 2012 I have been sick, have lack of money, but God has given me just enough to get by on Praise God, and I am alone physically n praying for provision in abundance, healing and my helper comparable to me (Gen 2:18). Since this is Shemittah I believe God is getting ready to provide and restore all these things back to me. I am in amazement how all these signs relate to Shemittah, the 4 blood moons and the Jewish holidays. Wow I do believe miracles are just about to take place for me and all my loved ones as well as all of Gods chosen people. I do pray for the peace of Jeruselum and I do believe the world will turn back to God and I do believe God forgives us and will grant us more time on earth because of our national repentance. I pray history will repeat itself and we all go back to a more moral time and be allowed to carry on a long time before the rapture and then the 7 year tribulation. Life abundantly is a gift from God, He doesnt want to take it from us, but we have to turn back to Him or He will have no choice but to take it away through Judgement. Hallelujah!!

    GREAT TRIBULATION !!! { Sept.13,2015/ partial solar eclipse/Elul 29 Shemitah end/50th Jubilee}

  20. And sure enough, within a few months of the Shmitah beginning, oil crashed by 50%. Already God has erased trillions in debt, which is our paper currency. It is not money, it is a promise to pay, therefore it is debt.
    J.P. Morgan himself said it best; “Gold and silver are money, everything else is credit.”

  21. to Mr. Yates who believes that the fall in oil prices is the much anticipated release: If you watch carefully what is happening to the prices of base metals, precious metals and most other commodities, we are witnessing economic engineering at its most cynical and worst. For a brief period we see producers of any given commodity force down prices by over-producing, but watch how markets react. At the retail level prices fall back as well but not as much as the raw price, widening the price gap between what producers pay and what you and I pay. I can prove this.

    Several years ago the price of oil spiked at $147 per barrel. At the retail outlets gasoline was selling for one dollar and fourty seven cents per litre. This means that one liter of gasoline sold for one percent of the price of a barrel of oil. Since then however the price of oil has fallen to about $50 per barrel. By my reckoning a liter of gas should fall to 50 cents, but it has only fallen to 80 cents per liter. Now within the last week the producer price of oil is starting to recover, from a low of $47 (retail should be .47) to $51 (retail should be .51) a difference of $4 per barrel (.04) but the price at the pump has risen 8 cents per liter or twice as fast as the price per barrel.

    However, part of the reasoning for flooding the world with cheap oil and forcing the price reduction is to bankrupt (or at least cause financial distress ) to their non-opec competitors. Saudis consider Canada a threat to them because of our oil sands and our proximity to the US market. The US would rather deal with Canada because we are generally regarded as friendly.

    So I believe that Mr. Yates is wrong when he says the release is the drop in the price of oil. But rather I think the release will come after the shemita is completed on September 13, 2015
    most likely before the last blood moon on october 28,2015.

    Many biblical scholars regard a lunar eclipse as a warning for Israel and a solar eclipse as a warning to the nations. This coming March, there will be a total eclipse of the sun. If the scholars are right it is warning to america , God help America for turning her back on Him. Even so come quickly Lord!

  22. Live in righteousness and you shall not fear. Biblical prophesies and superstitions will have no effect on you. Live your life well and true. Whether you are an atheist or believe in some dogma or religion you will feel calm and strong if you live your life thinking and doing the right and decent things. If you are constantly doing the wrong things and hurting people and the planet you will live in fear.

    Peace be with you all.

  23. Thankyou for that, I am a Seventh day Adventist Christian and I find all of this very interesting, I heard the pope will be visiting the white house Sept. 22-27, please be aware of the Jesuit agenda may God be with us.

  24. Eli Stanley Jones wrote a book in 1935 with these ideas in mind, it was “Christ’s Alternative to Communism”. A man read that book then several years later on television in 1969 quoted Christ’s words from Isaiah 61 into Luke 4. Jesus promised and prophesied a world wide debt cancelling JUBILEE at the end of the Age of Pisces, the Fish. That is the Shemitah from Rosh ha Shanah September 13, 2015 to yom Kippur October 11, 2016 then the Jubilee from October 11, 2016 to Rosh ha Shanah 2017 in September. Exact Hebrew holy days are difficult to nail down, it does not matter. The Old World Order from Venice to London to New York city is about to die. The New World Order is yet future. Evangelize the world for Jesus, our kinsman redeemer and savior of our souls.

  25. In regard to your concluding sentence, I couldn’t agree with you more, Dennis. Living through this time is so amazing, seeing Israel flourish, and hearing of Muslims having dreams and visions of our Lord Jesus.

    I’d never heard of the author or his book. Or, of course, the subsequent prediction by someone else on the TV. I know that this was back in 1969, so if you don’t remember anymore details, it’s understandable. But I’m curious as to how this fellow on TV determined the date of the end of the Age of Pisces? Apparently, in astronomical terms, it won’t end until 2597, so we have a way to go! As far as astrology is concerned, there’s no real consensus as to when it concluded (or is yet to end). Quite a few say that it was 2012, but there are many others who give other widely varying dates. Here’s a great article on the issue;

    How did he determine that the transition was related to the Shemitah up coming on Sept.13th, 2015? Perhaps it was a leading of the HS that caused him to pick that date. That could well be because there have been similar instances in the past, such as the early 1980’s where Christians all over Europe were hearing in advance that there would be a great new exodus of Jews from Russia. There were books written on it, well before anyone had a clue that the USSR would collapse. And then it happened in 1990 or so.

    In Jesus’ name …. Dave

  26. Great reseach. Just one interesting point, every one of the solar/lunar events you listed above is on a jewish holiday. In addtion, the blue moon that happened last friday also happened on Shabbat Nachamu, which is a sabbath of comfort and the first of seven in preparation for Rosh Hashana. It is unheard of to have so many rare astronomical events happening on jewish holidays. Something very big is coming.

  29. I’ve been reading The Harbinger, and this is all VERY fascinating. Interesting that Elul 29 falls on a Sunday this year. It probably won’t be a Wall Street crash again, since Wall Street won’t be trading. But whatever does or does not happen, I’m just going to find peace, hope and joy in the fact that I’ve trusted in the Lord and that I’ll be in a God-loving, bible-preaching, devil-hating, missions-supporting Christian church on that day! Thanks for the article Pastor Tim!

  30. We have seen the blood moons come and go, but don’t forget this is the jubilee year which happens after 7 shmitah cycles. This Christmas occurred on a rare full moon, it has been 38 years since the last (1977), but are you aware of the fact that there will be another full moon this year on Good Friday! The only other recognized Christian holiday? These are just as rare, but what makes this event so unusual is that they are occurring in succession during the jubilee year! Statisticians couldn’t possibly calculate the probabilities of these seven, yes I said seven, events happening in order like this.

    Two blood moons, a total eclipse of the sun, two more blood moons and two full moons on Christian holidays? These are more than mere co-incidents.

    We have been waiting for financial collapse, well, congress just passed another temporary spending bill that will expire in September, and at about the same time The Fed announced the first of 4 planned increases in interest rates to occur at 3 month intervals. To me this sounds like a good recipe for disaster.

    Not setting dates but I do plan on keeping my head down and reading the bible while it’s down there. Merry Christmas everyone and God bless us all in the New Year !
