Rabbi Jonathan Cahn wrote, “The Shemitah’s opening can mark the beginning of change and the shifting of momentum. At the same time, if a change or shifting should take place at this point, more often than not it tends to constitute a firstfruit, a foreshadow of what lies ahead, a subtle trace in comparison to what comes at the end. If there is a change at this point, its coming may or may not be noticeable at first. The general pattern is this: As the Shemitah progresses, and particularly, as it nears its end, its intensity increases.” (The Mystery of the Shemitah, Johnathan Cahn, Front Line Books, pg 238)

This current Shemitah Year (7 year land rest of Leviticus 25:4) began last week, September 24 at sundown and will continue until September 13, 2015. The last 2 Shemitah years ( 9/30/2000 – 9/17/2001  and  9/13/2007 – 9/28/2008) on the Hebraic calendar have ended with incredible loss of the stock market value in Wall Street. The last day of the Shemitah Year in 2001 saw a stock market loss of 684 points and the last day of the Shemitah Year in 2008 closed with a 777 point loss. The 2008 loss began the Great Recession and has shook the world’s economies with not one nation left untouched financially .

I would like to highlight the incredible first week of this current Shemitah Year:

  • Day 1- September 25, US Attorney General Eric Holder resigned.
  • Day 2- September 26, Liberian tourist to American goes to Dallas hospital with Ebola symptoms- sent home with antibiotics
  • Day 2 – September 26, Moore OK, man beheads woman with a knife
  • Day 4 – September 28, First case of Ebola in the US reported in Dallas, TX
  • Day 5 – September 29, PM Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to General Assembly at United Nations
  • Day 6 – September 30, Congress grills Secret Service Director, Julia Pierson on security breaches, with a major breach exposed following the hearing
  • Day 7 – October 1, PM Benjamin Netanyahu met with President Obama in the White House
  • Day 7 – October 1, Secret Service Director, Julia Pierson resigns following full details of security breaches for the White House and President
  • Day 7 – October 1, The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 238.19 points, or 1.4%, to 16,804.71. The S&P 500 dropped 26.13 points, or 1.3%, to 1946.16 and the Nasdaq composite skidded 71.30 points, or 1.6%, to 4422.09. October also makes investors uneasy, as it is a month known for major stock market crashes in 1929 and 1987.

It looks to me that the Shemitah Year is beginning with a change, shifting and uncovering of things hidden in the darkness. Keep looking up!

Blood Moon October 8 – 4am CST
