The Mystery of the Shemitah is basically a book about the Biblical Sabbath and Jubilee cycles and how they relate to socio-economic cycles in the context of a Biblical message of repentance. The author, Jonathan Cahn makes a pretty detailed case for his theory that financial and economic events of today may be influenced by these two ancient Biblical cycles. Like ripples in a pond or echoes in a canyon, one can't help but wonder if the 7 year Sabbath cycle and the 50 year Jubilee cycle still effect history today. Another way of looking at it is the famous quote by Mark Twain: "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme".
Admittedly the author sticks to a more secular aspect of the Biblical cycles as they relate to America and world financial markets, but let me tell you why I think his underlying premise has some merit. Using 7 year Sabbath cycles as Mr.Read more ›
The Mystery of the Shemitah, Jonathan Cahn’s second book, following his massive bestseller, The Harbinger, is so unique and its claims and revelations so radical that it’s hard to know where to begin. I was among a few hundred people given an advance look at the book and so have sought to put together the most important facts for a reader to know.
The first thing to note, for those who have already read The Harbinger, is that the format is different. The Harbinger brings forth non-fiction revelations through a narrative. But in The Mystery of the Shemitah, Jonathan Cahn brings forth the revelations straight out in a non-fiction format.
The second thing is the title. The word Shemitah refers to Sabbath year observed in ancient Israel, when all working of the land ceased, the land rested. This took place every seventh year. On the last day of that year, all debts were wiped away, all credit was nullified, the financial accounts of the nation were, in effect, wiped clean.
Later on, in Israel’s history, as the nation turned away from God, the Shemitah became a sign and manifestation of judgment, the kingdom’s destruction in 586 B.C. and its exile in Babylon were timed to the years of the Shemitah.
Most people had never heard of the “shemitah” before The Harbinger came out. One of its fourteen mysteries was that of the Shemitah. That was the beginning of the mystery. If you have not read The Harbinger, it’s essential to read to understanding where we are and where we’re headed. And yet even this will not quite prepare you for what is in the new book.Read more ›
"Stock market's greatest one-day point crashes"
Throughout the chapter he refer's to the "stock market" or the greatest one-day crashes on "Wall Street", but provides no index or data to reference what he is referring to. After reading further and doing a bit of research, one is able to disect that he is referring to the performance of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA). This index is made up of 30 large companies based in the United States, and is largely viewed by the investment community to be a poor representation of the entire U.S. stock market, which is made up of over 4000+ companies.
One must also note that 'point-crashes' are not the same as 'percentage-crashes,' and that data based on 'points' rather than percentages is going to skew the data to the most recent recession or collapse. If the DOW was at 10 points at any given time, a 1-point decline would be a loss of 10%. If say, after (X)-many years, the DOW has grown to 1000 points, a 1 point decline would be a loss of .1%. BIG difference. As time goes on, the DJIA (and almost every other major index) has historically increased due to inflation, economic growth, increased output, etc...Read more ›
