World unhinged? Does Bible have a clue?
Does it seem like the world is a little more unhinged than usual?

  • Stock market going wild;
  • Global currency crisis;
  • Wars and rumors of wars;
  • Terrorists unstoppable;
  • Death of kings and national upheaval;
  • Governments have no answers.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. What’s it all about? Is there a common denominator linked to these crises and more? Yes, says Jonathan Cahn, the messianic rabbi and New York Times bestselling author of “The Harbinger,” the bestselling Christian book of 2012 and 2013. And the answer, he says, comes in his new book with shocking conclusions – “The Mystery of the Shemitah.” What is “the Shemitah”? It’s a biblical, seven-year cycle that culminates in a year of rest, release, economic leveling, the rise and fall of empires and more. The Shemitah comes once every seven years. In biblical Israel it brought a canceling of debts, a resting of the land from sowing and reaping, and a resetting of financial accounts. The seven-year Shemitah cycle was meant as a blessing as long as the Israelites followed God and observed his ways, but it could manifest as judgment if the nation turned to its own devices and removed God from its culture and legal system. What Cahn found in researching the Shemitah throughout the world’s history is that it not only impacts Israel and the Jewish people. It affects everything, as he puts it. The specific avenues of potential judgment Cahn is watching now are the economy and the rise of ISIS as a new terrorist threat to America. The last two Shemitah years – 2000-2001 and 2007-2008 – brought the 9/11 attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and the historic stock market crashes of September 2001 and 2008. More
