The Biblical Year of Jubilee and Financial Collapse

The Hebrew Year of Shemittah:

SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 BY PASTOR TIM SWANSON
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
