Oct 3, 2014 The date of the start of the 70th week of Daniel’s prophecy

There are very well thought trains of thought in this article about the Shemitah and Jonathan Cahn. The observation about the Messiah will be cut off in Daniels prophecy at the end of the 69 weeks of years is the reason I always thought that the last week of years would start where it left off in Passover crucifixion day.

It could be that the punishment was for the not keeping the Shemitah law and the punishment of the 70 weeks of years follows a Passover chronology. There can be no doubt that the first 69 concurrent weeks of years had to follow a Passover chronology due to the indisputable timing of the date where the 69th week of years ended (Passover). So in conclusion the seventieth year of weeks should start in Passover but due to the many hundreds of years in between it could be chosen by God at another date.

My Shemitah Problem

By Daymond Duck

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has written a new book called The Mystery of the Shemitah. Many don’t understand it and some are asking questions so the purpose of this article is to try to explain some things. But before I do, I want to say that I haven’t read the book. I have only read articles about the book so what I have read could be wrong or I could misunderstand it.

God made a covenant to give all of the Promised Land to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants forever (Gen. 17:7-8, 18-21; Gen. 28:13; 35:10-12). But before they entered the Promised Land, God told Moses to:

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, ‘When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. 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’” (Lev.25:2-4).

Before the Jews entered the Promised Land, God asked them to let the land go through a seven-year cycle (called a Shemitah cycle). He wanted them to plant and harvest crops for six years and to let the land rest during the seventh year (called a Sabbath year or a Shemitah year). Notice, two things: 1) a Shemitah cycle (a seven-year cycle) and 2) a Shemitah year (the seventh year of a Shemitah cycle).

If the Jews would obey God by keeping the Shemitah cycle including the Shemitah year, He would bless them in many ways (Lev. 25:4-13). But if the Jews didn’t obey Him by keeping the Shemitah cycle, including the Shemitah year, He would walk contrary to them in fury and they would suffer in many ways (Lev. 26:27-35).

If they ignored the Shemitah year by planting and harvesting crops, He would remove them from the land one year for every year they did that (Lev. 26:35). And He would punish them seven times more than that for the other sins they committed during the Shemitah cycle over and above not letting the land rest (Lev. 26:28).

To make a long story short, the Jews eventually stopped observing the Shemitah cycle and the Shemitah year by planting and harvesting crops in the seventh year. And God let them get away with that for 70 Shemitah cycles (70 cycles X 7 years/cycle = 490 years).

During these 70 Shemitah cycles, they planted and   harvested a   forbidden crop every seventh year until they had planted and harvested 70 forbidden crops (1 forbidden crop in 7 years, 2 in 14 years, 3in 21 years, etc. until they had planted and harvested 70 forbidden crops in 490 years).

After the Jews planted and harvested their seventieth forbidden crop, God used Babylon to remove them from the land for 70 years. He punished them 70 years for planting and harvesting 70 forbidden crops (Jer. 25:8-13; 29:10). But He still needed to punish them seven times more (7 X70 = 490 years or 70 Shemitah cycles) for the other sins they committed during the 70 Shemitah cycles (Lev. 26:28).

Daniel was fasting and praying about this when the angel Gabriel appeared and told him the Jews still had to be punished for seventy weeks of years (70 Shemitah cycles for their other sins; Dan. 9:24). Gabriel said starting with a command to restore and to build Jerusalem seven weeks of years (7 Shemitah cycles) and 62 weeks of years (62 Shemitah cycles) will pass and Messiah the Prince would appear (Dan. 9:25). Then, Gabriel mentioned one final week of years (one final Shemitah cycle that some call the Tribulation period).

Now, as I understand it every new Shemitah cycle begins on the first day after a Shemitah year (the first day after the seventh year of a cycle) and every Shemitah cycle ends on the last day of a Shemitah year (the last day of the seventh year). Thus, we are being told that the seventieth Shemitah cycle will begin on the first day after a Sabbath year. And we are being told that because the seventieth Shemitah cycle is the Tribulation period (which appears to be wrong), we are being told the Tribulation period will begin on the first day after a Sabbath year.

The Jewish civil year always begins on Rosh Hashanah which means “the beginning of the year” (New Year’s Day). The seventh year (Shemitah year) of the present Shemitah cycle began on Sept. 25, 2014 and it will end on Sept. 13, 2015. The next Shemitah cycle will begin the next day on Sept. 14, 2015 (Rosh Hashanah of next year) and we are being told that could be the beginning of the Tribulation period. So we are being told if the Tribulation period doesn’t begin on Sept. 14, 2015, it won’t begin until Rosh Hashanah 2022 (the next Shemitah cycle), or Rosh Hashanah 2027 (the next Shemitah cycle), etc.

Now here is the problem I am having with this: The 70 weeks of Daniel are 70 seven-year cycles, but they don’t appear to line-up with the Shemitah cycle. The first 69 weeks of Daniel didn’t end in the fall on the last day of a Shemitah year (on the day before Rosh Hashanah). They ended in the spring on Nisan 10 (Palm Sunday; Ex. 12:1-6; Jn. 12:1, 12) and Jesus was cut off or crucified a few days later in the spring on Passover Day (Matt. 26:2).

So if the seventieth week of Daniel (the Tribulation period) is a continuation of the first 69 weeks the Tribulation period will begin in the spring, it won’t line up with the Shemitah year and won’t begin on Rosh Hashanah. If the Tribulation period does begin on Rosh Hashanah it won’t be a continuation of the first 69 weeks of Daniel (first 69 cycles). Either I am missing something or else something doesn’t fit.

Having said this, thanks to my good friend, Mike Hile, I am finding some very interesting things about economic issues. This article will be too long if I go into all of them, but I want to mention just one.

On 9/11 [Sept. 11. 2001] planes were flown into the WTC towers. President Bush shut down the banks for 6 days. They were closed on the day before Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 16, 2001). But they reopened the next day on Rosh Hashanah, Sept. 17, 2001, and the stock market dropped more than 700 points. So that large decline in the Stock Market happened on Rosh Hashanah in 2001 which was the beginning of the next seven-year cycle.

Seven years later on Sept 29, 2008, the day before Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 30, 2008) the Stock Market dropped 777 points. That was the largest one-day decline in the history of the Market and it triggered the current Great Recession. So this happened on the day before Rosh Hashanah 2008.

The current seven-year cycle will end on Sept. 13, 2015 the day before Rosh Hashanah. Jonathan Cahn is not predicting an economic collapse on Sept. 13, 2015, but he is alerting people to this trend. He claims to be getting calls from financial analysts that are watching this. He says the state of Israel is funding a study of it. He believes it is time for people to put their spiritual house in order.

The Bible does predict a Global economic collapse and Jonathan’s information on these economic issues bear watching.

Oct 3, 2014 The Rapture and the movie Left Behind starting today with Nicolas Cage

Let me start this post with the passages in the Bible that cover the Rapture.

1 Corinthians 15

I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”h

1 Thessalonians 4

Believers Who Have Died

13Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words.

The Left Behind Movie with Nicholas Cage comes out today and the main plot of the movie is the Rapture and those that did not go the left behind people. Shortly after the Rapture the seven years of Apocalypse starts and after the seven years the start of the Millenium Kingdom at Jesus Christ second coming.

If you ask the Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage why he took the lead role of “Rayford Steele” in the upcoming biblical thriller “Left Behind,” he’ll likely cite his admiration for the script and the opportunity to work again with director Vic Armstrong.

But the Hollywood star has also revealed a more personal motivation.

“My brother, Marc, is a Christian pastor, and he was very excited about this,” Cage told reporters in a press conference touting the film’s Oct. 3 debut. “He said, you know, Nicky, you’ve really got to do this.

“I’d already wanted to make the movie because I thought it was such a great script and an opportunity again to do something challenging,” Cage continued, “but when I saw how passionate [Marc] was, I thought, well, yeah, I want to make this movie for my brother, too.”

Cage made similar comments in a Facebook video, where he says his brother “inspired me to look at [‘Left Behind’].”

Cage’s brother, Marc “The Cope” Coppola, is perhaps better known as an actor and classic rock DJ on New York City’s WAXQ-Radio.

Jordin Sparks, the “American Idol” winner who plays airplane passenger “Shasta Carvell” in the movie, told reporters she was inspired to join the cast by reading as a teen the “Left Behind” books that form the basis of the film.

“I just remember being so affected by the thought of, wow, what if my closest friends just disappeared one day? What if they just weren’t here?” she said. “As a kid that’s definitely very scary. … [You might think], ‘It’s just in a book,’ but you know, when you read the Bible and you take those things to be truth, you know it is definitely something that you can think of and go, ‘Wow, that could actually happen.’”

Sparks also said this version of “Left Behind” is delivering a message relevant to audiences of all faiths.

“The great thing about this movie … because of the people that they have brought into the film, they have the ability to have people from all over come in and see the movie whether they are believers, whether they’re non-believers,” she said. “Whether they are agnostic, whether they don’t believe in anything, it doesn’t even matter. … I think everybody can relate to imagining, ‘What if somebody that I loved wasn’t around anymore, in an instant?’ It can definitely happen, whether it is through being taken up in the Rapture or a tragic accident. Life isn’t promised to us here; tomorrow is not promised.”

Cage similarly was drawn to the movie’s universal themes.

“I was very taken by the family dynamic that plays out in this script,” Cage said. “That’s what I want … to come across, that people realize we all make mistakes, but in a moment of crisis what we really want, what we really go back to is the love we have for our families.”

He continued, “Ray Steele gets back to his true need for family through this extraordinary experience and understands the value of family and just wants to get back to that no matter what happens. Just to be able to get back on the phone with his daughter [and] say, ‘I’m sorry,’ and say, ‘I love you.’ And I think it’s as simple as that. I think that is heart-wrenching. And if you have a heart, I don’t think it’s possible to see the movie and not get a little verklempt. I mean it: There’s some very poignant, emotional moments.”

But why remake the movie at all? A series of “Left Behind” films was made in 2000 starring popular Christian actor Kirk Cameron.

In an exclusive interview with WND, the producer and writer for both “Left Behind” projects, Paul Lalonde, explained the rebooted story is aiming for a much bigger splash with bigger stars, a bigger budget and a much bigger ambition.

“We did three movies back in the early 2000s starring Kirk Cameron,” Lalonde said. “They were extremely successful but didn’t really fulfill my dream as a filmmaker.

“I’ve found Bible prophecy to be a great way to reach out to people who may not necessarily be open to evangelism, so we were excited about [the first] ‘Left Behind’ and how it did, but ever since then I wanted to do something bigger,” he continued. “I wanted to put Bible prophecy on the big screen rather than just on videos, to put the message of Bible prophecy in front of a much broader audience, and not just church-goers. That’s something we’ve tried to do with this new ‘Left Behind’ movie and this new approach of a bigger film with A-list actors.”

Lalonde also told WND not to expect this “Left Behind” to be a rehash of the previous film series.

“This is a very different script,” he said. “The first movie covered the entire first book in the ‘Left Behind’ series, a lot of events taking place, dozens of plot points. In the first movie, we didn’t really have time to focus or to really get to know the characters because of the pace of the events. This movie, on the other hand, the entire movie, is about the day of the Rapture, so really only the first chapter of the first book. This really doesn’t bear any resemblance to the first movie.”

But as more mainstream actors find their way into the film, WND asked, did the biblical content get pushed out?

“This movie focuses on the day of the Rapture, so there really isn’t any huge opportunity for anyone to do evangelizing, but the Christian worldview is there,” Lalonde said. “The message is there. Everybody who is watching knows it was the Rapture; they know where those people went; they know why those people left and why those who were left behind were left behind, so there is no attempt to hide the biblical theme of the movie.

“Yet it’s not in-your-face evangelism, because that’s specifically something I was trying to temper for a more mainstream audience,” he continued. “We wanted to hold true to the source material of the ‘Left Behind’ books, ultimately to hold true to the Scriptures and make sure we didn’t change any of the biblical realities.

“We didn’t do a ‘Noah’ on the script,” he insisted. “What I want is when people walk out of the theater, they’re asking, ‘Is that really in the Bible?’ And unlike ‘Noah,’ the answer is yes.”

For Lalonde, the ultimate goal is to reveal how imminent and relevant biblical prophecy is to all audiences, regardless of their religious background.

“What I like about ‘Left Behind’ is that it is a Bible-based movie, it’s a biblical story, it’s a true story – it just hasn’t happened yet,” Lalonde told WND. “It is a biblical movie like ‘Noah’ or ‘Son of God’ or ‘Exodus,’ but nobody’s in sandals. This is the modern world. This is today. And the great thing about the Rapture and about the immanency of the Rapture is this could literally happen this afternoon.

“So that’s a great takeaway for people,” he concluded. “We’re not talking about something that happened 4,000 years ago or 2,000 years ago; this is very relevant to today. Plus, you’ve got sort of a ‘Twilight Zone’ theme going on here with people disappearing – I think it will be very eye-opening to people who are outside of that core Christian audience to see that this is something prophesied in the Bible and worth looking into.”

Oct 3, 2014 Is the dollar about to loose its position in the world?

Unless you are a knowledgeable stock market follower and financial analyst the article below should be new to you. It is something that will affect the economy of the world big time. Please read the links also. Thanks to http://www.raptureready.com for providing the link. Remember that this year 2014-2015 is a Shemitah year see more on this blog. A reset called for in the article will have the effect of bring down the value of the dollar as its value has been artificially kept high by the controlling banks to keep stealing the money they print.

Imagine you own a property and you want to sell it and that the buyer wants to pay you with a paper currency that he has been printing from his house and that the only guarantee that it is as valuable as your property is his word. That is what has been going on in the world till now, but things will change drastically when the reset takes effect.

China will use gold and gold pricing to force global currency reset

October 1, 2014 12:22 PM MST

Gold inventories on the Comex

On Sept. 30, statistician and economist Dr. Jim Willie was a guest on the Caravan to Midnight radio show to talk about current financial, economic, and geo-political events. During his three hour interview, Dr. Willie stated that one of the purposes behind China‘s creation of the new Shanghai gold exchange is to eventually take over global price controls for the monetary metal away from the Comex, and then force a global currency reset by raising the price of gold to its true or actual value.

The way this will come about in the near future according to Dr. Willie, is that China will re-price gold to near or above twice the current price, which will have a devastating effect on derivatives and ongoing use of the Comex futures market to suppress gold prices, and protect the dollar. And based upon supply details for the Comex over the past two years, America’s primary gold exchange no longer settles their contracts through the delivery of physical gold, but instead settles in cash payments or through the hedging of gold using derivatives. Subsequently, once this failure to deliver takes place, then China, through the Shanghai gold exchange, will become the default market for price discovery, and at that point will re-adjust gold to its true value, instantly causing massive chaos in the fiat currency markets and leaving the world little alternative but to implement a complete currency reset.

Dr. Jim Willie: When we get this next global currency reset, it’s going to be a complete reset. It apparently will happen predominantly in the gold world. They are going to change the price of gold, and jam it down the U.S.’s throat.

Take a look at the Comex. Since the middle of 2012 or so, they’ve been forcing gold contracts to settle not in metal, but in cash. And if you don’t like it, they’ll ban you from the Comex. There’s been very little if any settlement of gold futures contracts for two years in gold metal. They’re not a gold market anymore, they’re a derivative market for gold instruments.

So, in late September… about a week ago, Shanghai started offering a gold and futures contract, and they’re settling in metal. And this is rabidly threatening the United States and London. And interestingly, you will notice shortly after this new exchange opened there are now uprisings in Hong Kong.

But this is the final phase… the end game of the next reset. They are going to do this in Shanghai and with their global gold contracts, with the real big event that’s going to create mass disruptions in the currency markets. And those disruptions will be from the Asians declaring what the gold price is, and with the Asians delivering and supplying physical metals at that gold price. – Caravan to Midnight, Sept. 30

Several economic analysts, including John Williams, Peter Schiff, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, and Gerald Celente all gave predictions earlier this year that a global currency reset event was going to take place in 2014, with most believing it would come before the end of summer. However, with the U.S. not on board with the rest of the world, and instead seeking military conflicts to delay the end of the petro-dollar system, both Russia and China have had to accelerate their efforts to create infrastructures that will allow a more fluid transition for global trade once a currency reset actually takes place.

Over the past several weeks, the dollar has grown in strength at the same time the rest of the world’s currencies have been collapsing. And because of this, global accumulation of physical gold at depressed levels is running at or near historic highs in an attempt to hedge sovereign currencies that have run out of muster from years of low interest rates and slow money velocities. And as several global financial indicators begin to reach a nexus, and threaten once again to bring the world into another economic crisis, China is recognizing that physical gold is the ultimate catalyst to force an end to the domination of purely fiat finance, and that by revaluing gold to its rightful price will have the effect of both protecting their own currency, and wresting financial control away from the West and the system of dollar hegemony.
