When you talk to your friends there seems to be an understanding that something is on its way. Something is going to be different very soon. Things are changing.
Those feelings might not be too far off. There’s a calendar that’s been running silently since Jews settled in the Holy land and westerners are just now beginning to pick up on it.
This calendar is called the Shemittah. The Jewish people started counting and observing seven-year cycles. Each cycle would culminate in a Sabbatical year,2 known as Shemittah,3 literally: “to release.” In short this is a practice where debts are forgiven every seven years. But for countries it can also mean a resetting.
For America this has been a sign of God’s judgement on our country. September 11, 2001 happened on a Shemittah year. Seven years after that was September, 2008, the day of the single greatest market crash in American history. In each of these occurrences Americans have had the arrogance to say “We will rebuild,” instead of being humbled into repentance.
Jonathan Cahn is a Messianic Jew who has been studying all these things, to better grasp Biblical prophecy.
If these things have been happening every seven years on the exact same date, then should we be looking to September 13, 2015 as a day of some sort of event happening?
Mr. Cahn isn’t saying something will definitely happen on this date, but that it would be unwise to think otherwise. We can definitely see a trend of things happening on these dates in years past so logic would tell us to be aware of this date this year.
September 13, is the end of the Shemitah
September 14, is the Festival of Trumpets or Rosh Hashanah
September 23, The Day of Atonement
September 28, The last Blood Moon and Feast of Tabernacles.
This is the time to live for God.
