There’s a financial crisis Every Sabbatical year: This year primed to be mother of them all, Israeli economist warns

October 6, 2021

The current Hebrew year, 5782, began on Rosh Hashanna one month ago, beginning a new shemittah (sabbatical) year. Most people believe that the shemittah has implications only for farmers based in Israel however in Biblical times, all debts, except those of foreigners, were to be remitted. One Israeli economist has chronicled a correlation between the seven-year shemittah cycle and major economic events. If his theory is correct, the world is about to enter a major crisis.

Shemittah and economic crisis

Rafi Farber, an Israeli economist and financial journalist who blogs and videos under the pen The End Game Investor, combines Torah knowledge with financial wisdom. This dual-discipline revealed a remarkable correlation.

“Every seven years on the Shemitta there is a debt reset for the entire world,” Farber explained. “This begins on Rosh Hashanna which is the New Year for the world that is marked by Jews because we are a kingdom of priests that represent the world to God. The Jewish New Year is actually Passover.”

As a student of economy, Farber noted highlights in history that were economic landmarks.

“The most famous recent landmark was 2008, 14 years ago or two shemittah cycles. This was, of course, the global financial crisis. It started with the subprime mortgage crisis and ended with the banking crisis.” https://www.israel365news.com/199962/theres-a-financial-crisis-every-sabbatical-year-this-year-primed-to-be-mother-of-them-all-israeli-economist-warns/

First of all, let me state that this is NOT the year 5782. The year is closer to 5992. 1900 years ago, the Jews intentionally distorted their calendar to try to point prophecies in Daniel chapter 9 to Simon Bar Kochba and away from Jesus the Christ.

Related to that, a few years ago, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


Jewish Year 5779 or 5990?

According to the Jewish ‘Seder Olam Rabbah’ the period from sunset 9 September 2018 to 29 September 2019 is the year 5779 Anno Mundi (age of the world). However, the Jewish Encyclopedia, secular scholars, and modern Jewish experts have all claimed that the count is off between 164 to 200 plus years. Are we closer to the year 5990 than 5779 since Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden? Why would the Seder Olam be off by so much? Does any of this have anything to do with deceit and pointing to the false ‘messiah’ Simon Bar Kochba? Was the Messiah supposed to come after 4000 or 6000 years? Does Daniel 9:26 clearly point to Jesus? Dr. Thiel refers to Jewish accepted and other sources to answer these questions? An article of related interest is available titled Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?

Here is a link to the sermonette video: Jewish Year 5779 or 5990?

Secondly, what about the so called Shemitah year?

Before answering that, let’s get some scriptural background.

The first day of the seventh month (Ethanim/Tishri) of the Hebrew calendar, which we call the Feast of Trumpets, was considered the beginning of the civil year. This is similar to how the first month (Nisan) was considered to be the beginning of God’s sacred year (cf. Exodus 12:2).

The beginning of each month for ancient Israel was to be marked with the blowing of trumpets per Numbers 10:10.

Every seven years there was a rest for the land–starting with the first year the children of Israel came into the promised land –and every seven years thereafter:

1 And the Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit; 4 but in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to the Lord. You shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. (Leviticus 25:1-5)

10 “Six years you shall sow your land and gather in its produce, 11 but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave, the beasts of the field may eat. In like manner you shall do with your vineyard and your olive grove. (Exodus 23:10-11)

The land rest helped the land become more productive as well as provided assistance to the poor.

According to many of the Jews, the claimed Shemitah year runs from sunset September 6, 2021 through sunset September 25, 2022. Which was the beginning of the Feast of Trumpets in 2021 and then ending with the next one in 2022.

However, the Jews have a problem counting years as that is NOT the year 5782, but more like approximately 5991 (see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?).

That being said, this claimed Shemita year has been accepted by the Messianic Jew Jonathan Cahn and certain other Protestants.

Some see economic and other disasters.

The idea of disasters coming from/during a Shemitah year was popularized eight or so years ago by Jonathan Cahn, who is perhaps best known for his book The Harbinger. I looked into the timing of this before and DO NOT BELIEVE THAT starting with sunset on September 6, 2021 a Shemitah year began, thus believe any claims based upon that are irrelevant.

Jonathan Cahn was wrong about what he taught would/might happen at the end of the last one (see September ‘convergence’: a harbinger of potential disaster?)

I also never accepted Jonathan Cahn’s belief that the Shemitah was from Trumpets 2014 to Trumpets 2015 (and denounced him for his inaccuracies there; e.g. 6000 years up and Jesus to return in 2016?)–but it seemingly helped him sell books.

I do NOT believe we are in a Shemitah year at this time. I suspect that the last one ran from sunset September 18, 2020 through sunset September 6, 2021. This coincided a bit with the COVID situation.

As far as Protestants go, let me report, that years ago, I saw an interview on CBN by Protestant Pat Robertson of Jonathan Cahn that was first broadcast 02/05/2013.

The interview screen at one point showed something that resembled two Power Point slides, apparently from Jonathan Cahn or one of his books. The first slide had the following information:




So, the above was a prediction of a possible global collapse at the end of a year that was likely NOT the Shemitah year.

The second had the following information:




Now if by tribulation, Jonathan Cahn meant the Great Tribulation, I wrote that it was not at all possible to begin then.

In September of 2015, he seemed to cautiously ‘double-down’ on his prediction as he stated:

I can tell you now that if Almighty God continues His pattern of judgment on the USA, the financial collapse of the US dollar, will happen on Sunday, the 13th of September 2015. http://projectavalon.net/forum4/showthread.php?73382-MARKET-CRASH-DATE-PREDICTED-In-line-with-Christine-Legarde-s–Luck-7s-..

Of course, that did not happen.

Before he was proven wrong on some of this, the well-known Protestant Pat Robertson said:

God…has ordained this young man as His prophet…Jonathan…

Is Jonathan Cahn God’s prophet as Pat Robertson stated?

No, he is not. If Jonathan Cahn is any type of a prophet, I would have to say that he is a false prophet.

Jonathan Cahn does not meet the New Testament criteria, plus his errors and misunderstanding of various matters disqualifiy him (to learn more about prophets, please see the article How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God and/or watch the video also titled How to determine if someone is a true prophet of God).

WND also called Jonathan Cahn a ‘watchman’ (see WND claims ‘Harbinger Man’ is a ‘watchman’), but he was most certainly not God’s watchman. However, God does use watchmen (see Go, Set a Watchman).

While I do NOT believe that Jonathan Cahn is a true Christian, I do believe that he is contributing to the fulfillment of prophecies like the following:
1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. (2 Peter 2:1-3)

Jonathan Cahn needs to publicly repent before it is too late. Various Protestants need to stop promoting him as a prophet.

Jonathan Cahn wrote a book on the Shemitah, then when it was, in my view quite wrong, he updated it.

The 2018 updated book is titled: The Mystery of the Shemitah Updated Edition: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future, the World’s Future…and Your Future! The back cover of the book states:

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT? … Understanding this seven-year pattern is essential for understanding the prophecy and the mysteries of the Bible that are still applicable today … the rise–and possibly the fall–of America can be linked to the year of the Shemitah.

If this was ESSENTIAL for Christians to understand prophecy, then in my view, Jesus would have so stated. Instead, He pointed to various signs in the Gospels as well as to the Book of Daniel.

It is not just Jonathan Cahn and some Jews who have pointed to a claimed Shemitah year for possible upheaval. Notice the following from State of the Nation:

2022: The Controlled Demolition of Everything

July 26, 2021

The 2022/2023 AD time window was selected decades ago as the time frame to conduct a controlled demolition of the entire Global Economic & Financial System (GE&FS). …

TPTB {The Powers That Be} have long planned to coordinate a controlled demolition of the GE&FS under the rubric of the GREAT RESET. …

The year of 2022 was specifically chosen as the beginning of the “Year of Final Collapse” for various reasons, each of which mutually supports the other. …

First and foremost, 2022 is not only a scheduled Shemitah year, it is the year of the Super Shemitah. The indisputable 7-year pattern of Shemitah years has been long established as explained here: The Actual Timing of the GREAT RESET Laid Bare. …

In all likelihood, the coming two to three years will make the First American Revolution look like a very tame Tea Party. http://stateofthenation.co/?p=75719

No, while I expect violence and a certain amount of chaos the next 2-3 years in the USA, it will NOT “make the First American Revolution look like a very tame Tea Party.”

What about the Super Shemitah? Well, if the above source was correct, then it would run from sunset September 25, 2022 or more properly sunset October 4, 2022 (the Day of Atonement) through sunset September 15th or 24th in 2023.


July 16, 2020

Make no mistake; the GREAT RESET has been planned for centuries. Yes, centuries!

The New World Order globalist banksters have essentially owned and operated planet Earth over the millennia that define the present age which began with the Mayan Long Count Calendar. That highly accurate and predictive calendar started well over 5000 years ago which means that the true end date can be any year going forward. …


It widely known that the field of banking, and particularly where it concerns the practice of charging interest, it always fell to a specific tribe which is recognized as the original international banksters. …

The Shemitah was a sacred seven year custom that was put into practice by the Hebrew communities which had the explicit purpose of forgiving all the debts that accumulated during the previous 7 years.

In this way, all members of the community were regularly relieved of their indebtedness so they could start fresh, and then the whole community rejuvenated financially. …

The 7-year Shemitah cycles and Jubilees have been proven — beyond any doubt — to directly correlate with uncanny precision to many of the major world events of the past 200 years.

Super Shemitah of 2022

Given the established timeline of every previous Shemitah calamity going back to the beginning of the 20th century, it’s clear that the upcoming Shemitah is actually the Super Shemitah. …

Which is exactly why the upcoming Super Shemitah will be the one to end all Shemitahs. Which is also why The Powers That Be are surreptitiously and conspicuously setting up the GREAT RESET.

KEY POINT: The Super Shemitah of 2022/2023 is the final Shemitah of the era that occurs after the last Shemitah Jubilee that took place in 2015. See: The Great Tribulation Of The 3rd Millennium Foreshadowed By The Shemitah Jubilee


Clearly, the defining events of the Super Shemitah, that will start some time in 2022 and continue throughout 2023, will create a sufficient level of disorder so that TPTB feel they can impose the most draconian changes as dictated by those globalist-directed governments executing the GREAT RESET. …

TPTB will attempt to do anything necessary to preserve their status quo of absolute supremacy for themselves while inexorably pushing the 99% into permanent financial ruin and unending economic hardship.

This is exactly what the GREAT RESET is all about as businesses around the world have been shut down forever as national economies have been destroyed pushing the whole world into a “Second Great Depression”. https://stateofthenation.co/?p=72645

While globalists will take steps, no, the “Great Reset” is not going to be complete in 2022 or 2023.

As far as Jubilee years go, according to the Bible, they are proclaimed on the Day of Atonement, which is nine days after the Feast of Trumpets (see also The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance). And while there have been economic troubles and cycles, claiming a super-shemitah for 2022 as the cause of them is not biblically-justifiable.

The actual “Great Reset,” meaning the rise of the Beast, will occur about the time of the start of the Great Tribulation and that will NOT be before 2025.

But, yes, changes will come–and we will see massive disasters–but they are not related to Jonathan Cahn’s or others latest ‘Shemitah year’ predictions.

Expect inflation and other economic problems over the next 12 months. This is NOT because of a claimed Shemitah year, but mainly because of sins and government mismanagement.

And as Jesus said:

37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:37)

We in the Continuing Church of God are watching as well as reporting about prophetically-related events.

We are in the beginning of sorrows and are watching what Jesus said to watch for.

Related to the recent claimed Shemitah, we put together the following video:


2022-2023 Shemitahs: Destruction/Reset?

Modern Jews claim that the period of time from sunset September 6, 2021 through sunset September 25, 2022 is a ‘Shemitah year.’ Some claim that this and the year that begins when this one ends (the claimed ‘jubilee’ is being called a ‘super shemitah”) and runs through 2023 may cause destruction or the Great Reset. Is this possible? Is Messianic Jew, Jonathan Cahn (of the Harbinger fame) a prophet of God as Pat Robertson has said or a false prophet? Was he right about the financial collapse of the USA in 2015? Are the Jews right about their Shemitah year being year 5982, or is 5991 closer? What about the beginning of sorrows? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
