September and the Shemitah - ah but what year?

 Two important events will be happening this month, according to Jonathan Cahn and Mark Bilitz, and we will have to wait and see if the implications are as climactic as they think they might be.

September 9, 2015 begins another Shemitah. This seven year Biblical Sabbath cycle was made popular by Jonathan Cahn in his books The Harbinger and the Mystery of the Shemitah. These point out that crucial financial events in recent American history have coincided with the seventh year (of the Shemitah), notably the reaction to 9/11 when the greatest crash in Wall Street’s history occurred on September 17, 2001 and the financial collapse of September 29, 2008 (7 years later). Now, seven years after 2008, on September 13, 2015, we are coming into another Shemitah peak. The recent upheavals in China’s and the world’s stock market give a person pause. One of the purposes of the Shemitah is to cancel all debts and reset the Biblical economy. If you have questions, then read these books and wait and see. I have reported on them in earlier posts. Jonathan Cahn is a Messianic Jewish Rabbi - his official site is on Facebook.

On September 27, a cosmic phenomenon will take place in the heavens: It will be the fourth consecutive total solar eclipse that will take place on a Biblical festival. Such a group of four eclipses is called a Tetrad. While lunar eclipses are very common, having four in a row occurring on Biblical festivals is not. On September 27, which is Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles/Booths), the moon, which will appear 14% larger than normal, will turn a reddish color when seen from Jerusalem. This so-called Blood Moon, is seen as a harbinger of possible traumatic implications for Israel. This was first broadcast in the book Blood Moons – Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs by Mark Biltz. Previous Tetrads have occurred in the time period of the founding of the nation of Israel and the Capturing of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The month of September, 2015 is a time when the United States has seemingly lost its moral compass, and forgotten the Biblical promise that those who bless Israel will be blessed, while those who curse it will be cursed. Romans chapter 1 describes the causes and effects that happen when a nation calls evil “good” and good “evil.” (Isaiah 5:20). 

While these are fascinating books and the previous happenings have been eerily true to form, I would not want anyone to cling so hard to these events that their faith would be shaken if nothing significant happens. Even the authors have said the same. While the Shemitah is real and the Blood Moons are real, the year in question is unknown. There is even a book that is called September 2021 – The signs and Appointed Feasts of Messiah from September 2015 to September 2021 by Phil Richardson. 

I am reading a sample copy on Kindle and I certainly agree with him on the importance of the Feasts. 
Here is a listing of the chapters:

Chapter 1: The Latter Days are all about the Ancient Jewish Wedding
Chapter 2: Daniel! Seal the Book until the Time of the End!
Chapter 3: The 6,000 Years of Man’s Rule!
Chapter 4: September 2015 and the Feast of Yom Teruah
Chapter 5: September 2015 and the Feast of Yom Kippur
Chapter 6: September 2015 and the Feast of Tabernacles
Chapter 7 September 2017 and the Mid-Tribulation Sign
Chapter 8: September 2014 and the Final 2550 Days
Chapter 9: Putting It All Together; the Connection to September 2021

God has a way of doing things in unexpected ways. We have a way of making laws. He comes in as a baby and shakes the world up. We see a pattern and make a prediction.

Somewhere in it all, the truth of scripture will come through. Keep your head up and enjoy the eclipse if you can.
