What a blessing the Lord has bestowed upon us, His Bride, His Children, His Faithful Flock – the Spirit of Discernment of these Last Days. It’s hard to keep up these days but as a End-Time Watchman on the Wall, keeping up is what we do, right? We can clearly see, events of the day are not playing out as we have been taught…they are going the way we and the world are waiting for them to play-out and this unfortunately, is causing many to feel confused, bewildered and ultimately, standing scratching their heads. We can no longer wait for what we think is the “proper order” of things to come – we must however open our spiritual eyes, ears and hearts to God inside of us, His Holy Spirit who is our PERSONAL TEACHER! We must trust in our love, faith and belief in the Lord and truly, truly LISTEN to what He is leading us to – the Truth…His Truth, not man’s truth that has been tainted, changed and misunderstood generation after generation. Why is this so important? Because where we are now, today in world events or what we Christians like to call “Last Day Events” as they will not line up to our generational teachings (from man) and many, will miss the signs and timing of what the Lord has promised, what He has spoken from the beginning until now.
We are currently in the time of “Wars and Rumors of Wars”. This is then followed by “Peace and Security” which is for Israel and will shortly play out for all to see. What I cannot believe we missed is the upcoming Jubilee for the Jews and it’s timing! During this time, they will be living in unwalled borders, their supernatural “dome” will be lifted and they will be exposed but to them, they will be living their days in peace and security. Now we know that a Jubilee period is for one year but this agreement that is agreed upon, will only last 9 months as it will be broken by the other side allthewhile leaving Israel openly exposed but at least they will have 9 months of happiness…right. I cannot fathom why we did not see this before – this time of peace DURING THE JUBILEE when the land is returned to the original land owner (God) and the importance of God’s Jubilee period, especially the timing of this one…it follows a Shemitah year!
“At the end of seven years you will make a release. And this is the manner of the release: to release the hand of every creditor from what he lent his friend; he shall not exact from his friend or his brother, because the time of the release for the L-rd has arrived” —Deuteronomy 15:1-2
The Shemitah year waives all outstanding debts between Jewish debtors and creditors.
[Nowadays, a halachic mechanism called pruzbul circumvents this loan amnesty. See Loan Amnesty for more information on the pruzbul.]
This aspect of Shemitah observance is known as shmitat kesafim, “release of money [debts].”
Take a Break from Farming
For six years you shall sow your field, and for six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather in its produce, but in the seventh year, the land shall have a complete rest, a Sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field, you shall not prune your vineyard, nor shall you reap the aftergrowth of your harvest . . . And [the produce of] the Sabbath of the land shall be yours to eat for you, for your male and female servants, and for your hired worker and resident who live with you… — Leviticus 25:3-6.
During the Shemitah year, the residents of the Land of Israel must completely desist from cultivating their fields. They also relinquish personal ownership of their fields; whatever produce grows on its own is considered communal property, free for anyone to take.
This aspect of the Shemitah year is known as shmitat karka, “release of the land.”

Year of Jubilee happens in 50 year cycles, following the 7th year of Shemita. In Jubilee, all debts are supposed to be cancelled, all land is supposed to be returned to its original owner. Liberty is proclaimed throughout the land. 1916 was a year of Shemita. The FOLLOWING year, Jerusalem was liberated from the Turks. 1965 was a year of Shemita, 49 years after the 1916 Shemita. The FOLLOWING year, Jerusalem was re-liberated from the Arabs.
We are currently in the 70th Jubilee cycle since the very first Jubilee, which occurred when Joshua led the children of Israel into the promised land and liberated it from the Canaanites. The beginning of that liberation was heralded with the blowing of the Yobel rams horns. The word “Jubilee” comes from Yobel. At the blowing of the seventh trumpet, the walls of Jericho collapsed.
From the following website http://onereturn.wordpress.com/2013/06/01/blood-moons-lunar-tetrad-the-jubilee-year/ :
“A Sabbatical year is every seven years. The Sabbatical years fall into a cycle of seven. After every seven Sabbatical years, forty nine years or 7×7, the first year of the new cycle, or the fiftieth year, is a Jubilee year unto the Jews. A Jubilee year happens every 50 years. However, the Jewish nation no longer celebrates the Jubilee year due to the fact that they do not have all that is required from the house of Israel, including their temple and red heifer, but, they still observe the Sabbatical years. So, in this manner we can still know when God’s Jubilee year for the Jewish nation is to begin.
The next Sabbatical year begins Sept. 2014 – Sept. 2015. That means the following year beginning Sept. 2015 – 2016 is God’s Jubilee year for the Jewish nation. Counting backwards we find the last Jubilee year was Sept. 1966 – Sept. 1967. Do you know what happened in 1967 for the Jewish nation? After the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Israel was declared a nation by the 1949 Armistice Agreements. However, it wasn’t until the Six Day War that they regained control of Jerusalem. In 1967!
Do you know what else happened in 1967? In 1967 there began what is called a Lunar Tetrad. A Lunar Tetrad is when there are four consecutive total lunar eclipses. Before 1967 the last tetrad began in 1949. Year sound familiar?? Even more interesting is that in both of these years the total lunar eclipses fell on Jewish Holy Feast days. The last time that happened began in 1493 during the Spanish Inquisition when the Jews were told to convert to Catholicism or leave Spain.
Leviticus 25:3-11 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the Lord: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land. And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee. And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat. And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.
This past March, 2014 at the Prophecy Conference in Orlando, Florida, I sat in the audience and listened to Jonathan Cahn speak with such excitement concerning the upcoming Shemita year (Sabbatical year) and Israel’s Jubilee that follows. Wow, was I blown away by what he was saying and yes, it all made sense. I advise everyone to research Mr. Cahn’s book The Harbinger and also view his You Tube videos where he himself teaches all that God has shown him and what he believes is ahead for the United States, Israel and the world and how it all relates to the Shemita and Jubilee years/period. I promise, it will blow you away! Below is some information taken from Jonathan Cahn’s study and book that was posted on “Why Circle” at whycircle.com. (http://www.why-circle.com/jonathan-cahns-harbinger-points-to-a-shemitah-date-in-2015/)
If you have read Jonathan Cahn’s Book, you’ll come across the segments about “The Mystery Of The Shemitah”. He points out how the two largest stock market crashes in 2001 and 2008 occurred exactly on the same day as Elul 29, which marked the end of “Sabbatical Years” – which, by the way, occur every seven Jewish years. Given the astounding accuracy of these dates, this really deserves some attention.
Indeed, let’s take a look at some facts: The nearly 700 point drop in the DJIA (just over 7%) on 9/17/2001 and 777.7 point drop in the DJIA on 9/29/2008 (just below 7%) were two of the three largest Dow point drops in U.S. history.
These drops occurred on the last day of the Sabbatical Years that occurred between 2000 and 2001 and between 2007 and 2008. This last day of the Sabbatical Year is when debts are to be forgiven per Jewish tradition:
The sabbath year, in Hebrew shmita (Hebrew: שמיטה, literally “release”), also called the Sabbatical Year, is the seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah for the Land of Israel, and still observed in contemporary Judaism.
During Shmita, the land is left to lie fallow and all agricultural activity (including plowing, planting, pruning and harvesting) is forbidden by Torah law. Other cultivation techniques (such as watering, fertilizing, weeding, spraying, trimming and mowing) may be performed as a preventative measure only, not to improve the growth of trees or plants. Additionally, any fruits which grow of their own accord are deemed hefker (ownerless) and may be picked by anyone. A variety of laws also apply to the sale, consumption and disposal of Shmita produce. A second aspect of Shmita concerns debts and loans. When the Shmita year ends, personal debts which are due during that year are considered nullified and forgiven. The Book of Leviticus promises bountiful harvests to those who observe the shmita and makes observance a test of religious faith.
Thus, in the last 15 years, there’s only been two days when the Sabbatical Year ended, i.e., 9/17/2001 and 9/29/2008, and on these days two of the three largest point declines in the DJIA in U.S. history occurred. What are the odds of that? And what does this “mean”?
The Sabbatical Year ends on Elul 29, the last day on the Hebrew calendar before the Rosh Hashanah and the Jewish new year. Over the last three decades, Sabbatical Years ended on the following days:
September 23rd, 1987 = Elul 29, 5747 September 5th, 1994 = Elul 29, 5754 September 17, 2001 = Elul 29, 5761 September 29, 2008 = Elul 29, 5769
All years were marked by major reversals in the stock market with acute declines in the autumn period: 1987, 1994, 2001, 2008.
The next date occurs on 15 September 2015. “
