Modern-day Prophet Clarifies the Unfolding Shemitah Phenomenon of 2015
Rarely, if ever, is a prophet accepted in his home town.

If, during the years leading up to 9/11, there were books written about a scheme to take down the Twin Towers via a controlled demolition, would the false flag operation still have been executed? If the internet was abuzz with conspiracy theories — before September 11, 2001 — about a cruise missile from the U.S. military arsenal being fired at the Pentagon, would the perpetrators still have followed through. If the modern-day prophets and televangelists, rabbis and ministers were warning the people of a grave event that would close the stock market for a week and shut down the airline industry, would the conspiracy proceed as planned? The point is that the September Shemitah is very much a manmade event that would only have proceeded if there was no likelihood of exposure. If those who conceive and coordinate the 7 year Shemitah crashes and collapses don’t want to be known, would they still implement their conspiratorial plot? Particularly during the month of September of 2015 — the prognosticated “biggest month of the millennium”, why would they dangerously give themselves away?
What’s the point? It ought to be obvious to everyone who has followed this story that the perps were forced to postpone their plans for their 7 year crash/collapse. Everyone on the internet has been watching their every move since 2015 began. However, that doesn’t mean that they have abandoned their Shemitah project.
Whereas the Shemitah events of the past 100 years were obviously manmade, they could be carried out with utmost secrecy … until now. It is quite incredible that the past two Shemitah events even took place in such a dramatic and momentous way given that the internet was operational. While many had premonitions of a 9/11 happenings, no one had the historical perspective or proper context to understand their visions and/or precognitions.
The real controllers of the Global Economic & Financial System could effectuate their Shemitah plans, without any threat of exposure, because of how secret and surreptitious their planning has always been. That’s all changed in the Internet Age. The world is truly a different place. Yes, it is still carrying a lot of baggage from the past, but that’s only because the Super Shemitah has yet to occur.
Very few truly understand the difference between the Shemitah and the Super Shemitah, and yet the difference is as great as black and white. Whereas the Shemitah has been a human-directed affair, the Super Shemitah unfolds by way of divine ordination. Especially a Super Shemitah on the order of this years, are the upcoming events as unstoppable as they are earth-shaking.
In other words there is simply no stopping the Super Shemitah just as the seven pillars of the MOEDIM cannot be altered by man or angel, deity or god. They will come to pass as surely as they were preordained by the Most High. Furthermore, because those concerned nations have failed to observe the letter or respect the spirit of the law of the Shemitah, the Super Shemitah will proceed as a great leveling.
When Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of The Mystery of the Shemitah, talks of a great shaking, he is also talking about the great leveling which occurs in its wake. Just because people don’t believe in biblical prophets anymore does not mean they are not living among us. Each nation, each society, each race of humanity, each civilization has its own gifted seers and soothsayers. When those blessed prophets serve as divine oracles, the people had better listen, and respond appropriately … … … or else.
It behooves everyone — under the sun — to hear and understand what the modern-day prophets are telling us. To ridicule them because the September Shemitah events were not as serious as expected is utter folly. There was an excellent essay written that was reproduced HERE, which authoritatively addressed why the whole place did not collapse in September. The yearlong Super Shemitah, which just began on September 23, the Day of Atonement, establishes all future milestones since it is divinely aligned with the inviolable MOEDIM. It ought to be understood that the 70th Biblical Shemitah Jubilee will be much greater in its impacts than the regular Shemitah year. This has been the consistent message from those who are in the know. And, by the way, anyone can be in the know if they just take the time to deeply contemplate the planetary predicament. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that what goes up (like the stock market) must come down. Nor does it take a biblical scholar to apprehend the depth and the breadth of the moral decay in American society. In other words, everyone who has eyes to see and ears to hear is now a prophet in their own land. Their heightened awareness and expanded consciousness regarding these weighty matters qualifies them as the local oracle. The key caveat concerns the tendency to shrink from prophetic duties in the face of inevitable persecution, since “no prophet is accepted in his home town”.
With this introduction, the following studied explanation by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn of the ongoing evolution of the 2015 Shemitah phenomenon is highly recommended. Although it is fraught with biblical imagery and scriptural language from the Judeo-Christian belief system, it truly speaks to the heart of every truth-seeker. The Cosmic Convergence Research Group is made up of folks from various religious faiths and spiritual traditions. We come with both Western mindsets and from Eastern philosophies and have found this dynamic exegesis to be as relevant as it is poignant. Above all, it is the sacred TRUTH and therefore must be carefully considered under the light of the divine illumination. Only the Lord Almighty can assist with such a revelatory process.

Jonathan Cahn: The Shemitah That Was and the Shaking to Come
I believe it is important to give an update.
I have given warning concerning judgment. I have said that I believe America is rapidly advancing toward calamity—that we have crossed the line in our apostasy and defiance of God. I’ve warned that if America continues in its present course, if there’s no return to God, its crown as head of nations will be removed and that I believe a great shaking is coming to this nation and the world.
As for when these things are to take place, I have from the beginning always issued a strong caution, in spoken word and in writing, from The Mystery of the Shemitah itself onward—specifically that we cannot be dogmatic about timing, and that nothing has to take place on a particular date or season, or according to any set calendar, or even as God has done before.
I have ministered that it is wise to be aware of the signs and seasons of the times, and that though such things can take place on biblically relevant times or dates, nothing has to happen on any particular date, whether within the parameters of the Shemitah or in its wake. Our focus must be not on dates but on God and getting right with Him.
At the same time, we remain in a dangerous period—and one of the reasons I’ve always cautioned regarding dates is that I never wanted such focus to obscure or minimize the larger picture: that regardless of what does or does not happen a particular date, America is racing toward judgment.
In The Mystery of the Shemitah, I share of biblical patterns which, at times, have had stunningly precise manifestations. Each of the last two Shemitahs has climaxed with the greatest stock market point crashes in history on the same exact biblical day—a once-in-seven-year day that happens to be appointed in the Bible for the effecting of financial remission and nullification. It remains a stunningly and eerily precise historical reality.
And precisely because it is so precise and because it happened in the last two of the Shemitah’s cycles, many saw it as an absolute that a massive stock market day crash had to take place on the next such day, September 13. Thus we have cautioned repeatedly that this particular manifestation and any particular manifestation does not have to occur in every or any one of the Shemitah’s cycles.
At the same time … having said and having said again all these things—there are a number of very large and significant facts to be noted:
The Shemitah of 2015 has, in fact, followed the most prevalent of the Shemitah’s templates.
What was missed by most in focusing on only one day, was that the largest and most prevalent of the Shemitah’s templates has, in fact, manifested. The Elul 29 day crash is only one of several manifestations, an exception and a minority template. In each of the last seven of the Shemitahs there has been a collapse—but only two of those seven collapses have involved an Elul 29 day crash. The majority have taken place according to a much larger template.
The larger and, by far, the predominant of the Shemitah’s templates is that of a long-term collapse, a collapse taking place over the course of several months, or one in which a rising stock market comes to an end, peaks within the Shemitah year, reverses its momentum, and begins a continuous descent. This descent may, at times, involve increasing volatility and dramatic day crashes, particularly in proximity to the Shemitah climax. And this is exactly what occurred in the Shemitah of 2015.
*The 2015 Shemitah has followed this larger and predominant of the Shemitah’s patterns, a template that appears in the book repeatedly.
Following the Shemitah’s pattern…
– The Shemitah of 2015 ended a rising stock market on May 19, a market that then reversed its overall momentum and began a long-term descent for the rest of the Shemitah year.
– As it approached its final phase, the stock market and its descent grew increasingly and dramatically volatile.
– Nearing its conclusion in late August, the Shemitah produced some of the most dramatic days in stock market history—most notably what would be called Black Monday—and which would trigger the collapse of stock markets throughout the world.
– The Shemitah of 2015 produced the greatest stock market intraday collapse in world history, a crash of over 1000 points.
– It would usher in the dramatic financial collapse of the world’s new economic engine—China.
– The collapse of China’s financial realm alone constituted one of the greatest long-term stock market crashes in history and, by itself, would make 2015 one of the most significant of Shemitahs.
– The amount wiped out from the Shanghai Exchange, in the space of just a few months was over 40 percent.
– The amount wiped out by the Shemitah of 2015, from the U.S. market, from its peak to Elul 29, would approach 2 trillion dollars!
– The amount wiped out from international markets in the same period would exceed 5 trillion dollars!
In many of the Shemitah years, the turbulence and collapse continue and may intensify past Elul 29, into the period of the Shemitah’s wake. In others, they do not. But whatever happens from this point forward, the Shemitah has already and again powerfully manifested.
Other key manifestations that have marked 2015 as an especially significant Shemitah year:
– The Mystery of the Shemitah chronicles how the Shemitah has marked the shifting of world power. So it was again. The American Age began in 1871, when it became the strongest economic power on earth. Within the parameters of the Shemitah of 2015, that era has officially come to its end.
– The Shemitah of 1973 became a milestone in America’s moral and spiritual collapse as the Supreme Court legalized the killing of the unborn. The Shemitah of 2015 was no less a milestone in this fall—as it was the year that the nation’s hedges protecting the biblical definition of marriage collapsed across the land, and were then, by the Supreme Court, conclusively struck down.
I have said that I believe it is wisdom to be prepared and that regardless of what happens, it is always wise to have essentials on hand—and yet that each needs to be led by the Lord in such things. For you who have done so, I believe you’ve been wise and are prepared and better off than you would have been otherwise. Regardless of what the future holds, it is a wise insurance that can always be used. And of course the most important preparation one can do is to be right with God.
I have said and repeat now that we stand as a nation in danger of judgment. The Shemitah is one template by which judgment may be manifested. Whether or not what is yet to come will be joined to what has happened in the most recent Shemitah, I believe that this nation is in and approaches days both critical and perilous. I see ahead, apart from the hand of God, days of apostasy and persecution, and, by the hand of God, a great shaking.
At the same time, God’s heart is salvation. And the purpose of shaking is to bring to repentance, salvation, and revival to those who will come. At this point I believe it is only through shaking that a true and great revival can come.
For you who would seek safety, the word for safety in Hebrew is Yeshua. And Yeshua is the name of Jesus. Thus the only way to be safe is to be in Jesus, Yeshua. As for you who are in Yeshua, the safest place to be is in the will of God. Make sure that’s where you are.
Know that in all things, God remains absolutely on the throne. And the one who lives in His will, lives and stands on the winning side. Now is not the time to be silent, fearful, or compromised, but to be all the more strong and all the more bold. When the night comes and the dark grows even darker, it is then time, for the lights of God to shine even more brightly. Be strong and of good courage. Proclaim the good news of Messiah. And pray for revival but don’t only pray for revival—Live in revival.
And as the apostasy progresses, as America races to judgment, as the biblical signs, principles, and harbingers of judgment continue to manifest, and as the events of the last days continue to unfold, I will, and we must, continue to sound the trumpet and the alarm, to call to repentance those who will come, and to draw the lost to Messiah Jesus, Yeshua, who remains the same yesterday, today, and forever and the only answer, the only way, and the only hope America has and all have, to be saved.
