Wipe Out Day is Coming!

Wipe Out Day is Coming!

Have you heard about this? They call it the “Shemitah.” According to those who have been following this, in Leviticus chapter 25, God commands his people to not plant the fields on the seventh year. This is to be a Sabbath Year to rest and honor God. During this year all debts are to be forgiven – a “Wipe Out Year” – slaves set free, the land is to rest, and the economy of the land will be reduced. Shemitah Years can bring down economies, kingdoms or nations that do not follow God’s will. If the people follow God’s Laws the nation is blessed at this time; if not, it can mean bad times for a nation.

I have been lightly reading about this. And, since “Wipe Out Day” is a week away, I pulled together some of the things I have been reading, so you can take a look. Here’s what they are saying …



1917- America rises to power ending World War I. The rising of the Communist State of the Soviet Union.

1917- The defeat of Germany. The fall of the Czar of Russia. The fall the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. The fall of the Turkish-Ottoman Empire.

(I’ll add that Our Lady of Fatima appeared in 1917)

1938- German Nazis attack Jewish businesses and burn Jewish Synagogues on Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass.)

1945- Nazi Germany is defeated. The Atomic bomb is dropped on Japan thus ending World War II. Japan signs peace treaty the same week of the end of the Shemitah year.

1945- The United States becomes a military super power. The U.S. dollar becomes the world standard currency. The United States is the richest country in the world, and the world’s largest lender nation.

1973- The United States Supreme Court declares that America’s can kill their unborn babies.

1973- The World Trade Center is completed which is a symbol of Americas economic strength.

1973- America loses its first war to Vietnam. Nixon takes America off the Gold standard. This sets in motion the decline of the U.S. dollar.

1980- The U.S. Supreme Court bans the posting of the Ten Commandments in Public Schools. Thus God is now completely banned from our public schools in America.

2001- The World Trade Center buildings (the symbols of Americas economic strength) are destroyed by an Islamic terrorist attack. One week later Wall Street has one of its greatest collapses on the last day of the Jewish Shemitah Year.

2008- Exactly seven years later, Wall Street suffers its largest decline. America is now the world’s largest debtor nation.

2014-2015- In Sept of 2014 we start a new Shemitah Year. This happens in connection with a Tetrad of 4 Blood Moons which all occur on Jewish feast days. As the United States has turn away from God and endorsed many sins, it is very possible that God’s judgment will fall on America during this year of the Shemitah.

(Above list from Jonathan Cahn’s book The Mystery of the Shemitah)

These things happened at the end of every seven years on Elul 29 – the day right before Rosh Hashanah on the Biblical calendar. This year, that “Wipe Out” date is September 13, 2015. Author Jonathan Cahn has correctly pointed out that we should never put God in a box. Just because something has happened in the past does not mean that it will happen again. But we should not rule anything out either.

Perhaps God is using His calendar to make a point. Cahn believes that if we are going to see something happen, it will probably occur as the Shemitah year comes to an end…

Cahn has pointed that, according to his research, the worst of the worst usually happens at the end of the Shemitah year, not at the beginning. In fact, the last day of the year, Elul 29 on the Hebrew calendar, which will occur on Sept. 13, 2015, is the most dreaded day.


The pattern revealed in “The Mystery of the Shemitah” is that the beginning of the Shemitah’s impact is often subtle, but leads to a dramatic climax.


“The beginning may mark a change in direction, even a foreshadow of what will come to a crescendo at the Shemitah’s end,” he said.

And this time around, far more people are paying attention. Back in 2001 and 2008, most Americans had absolutely no idea what a “Shemitah year” was. But now it is being talked about on some of the most prominent alternative news websites on the Internet. For example, the following is what Joseph Farah of WND has to say about the Shemitah year…

Farah believes the date Sept. 13, 2015 bears close watching – though he is quick to admit he has no idea what, if anything, will happen in America.


“A clear pattern has been established,” he says. “I don’t believe it’s a coincidence what happened in America on Elul 29 in 2001 and 2008. It would be foolish to ignore the possibility that a greater judgment might be in the works – especially if America continues to move away from God and His Word.”

The Shemitah year that we are in now does end on September 13th, 2015 – and that falls on a Sunday so the markets will be closed.

But when it comes to the Shemitah, we aren’t just looking at one particular day.

And it is very interesting to note that there will also be a solar eclipse on September 13th, 2015. Over the past century, there have only been two other times when a solar eclipse has corresponded with the end of a Shemitah year.



Jubilee years are based on the Shemitah Years which occur every 7 years. Seven Shemitahs makes a Shemitah of Shemitahs. (7×7=49 years is the Shemitah of Shemitah cycle period.) The year following the 7th Shemitah Year is a Jubilee Year. While the Jubilee year follows the 7th Shemitah Year thus becoming the 50th year, the Jubilee year is also the 1st year of the new cycle thus keeping the 49 year cycle going.

The last two jubilee years were …

1917 – Our Lady’s warning at Fatima

1966 – The explosion of decadence, immorality and debauchery, and the beginning of the steep decline of religious practice.

In September 2015 we start a new Jubilee year. The new Jubilee starts with a partial solar eclipse. It is of special note that this is 40th Jubilee Year since Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem. It is also the 70th Jubilee year since the first one was proclaimed by God.



Finally, those who have been following these things, also point to a “Tetrad of Blood Moons.”

What’s a “Blood Moon?”

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Moon passes through the Earth’s shadow. The only light reaching the Moon is sunlight which as passed through the earth’s atmosphere at a low angle. This is the same effect which makes sunsets appear red. In ancient times people referred to an eclipsed moon as appearing ‘Blood Red.’

What’s a “Tetrad of Blood Moons?”

It is possible for a Lunar Eclipse to occur twice a year when the sun and moon are 180º apart in the sky and close to the celestial equator. If a total Lunar Eclipse occurs four consecutive times in a row, it is called a Tetrad.  From year 1 until 2010 there have been 54 Tetrads. The years 2014-2015 will be the 55th Tetrad.

What is the significance of “Tetrads occurring on Jewish Feasts?”

It is somewhat rare for all four tetrad blood moons to occur each on Jewish Feast Days. Only two happened in the fourteen hundreds and the next two happened in the nineteen hundreds. When this has happened in the past important events have occurred on or near the Jewish Tetrads. A Jewish Tetrad occurred 1493-1494 and this was period of time that Jews were expelled from Spain and Columbus returned from his discovery of the New World. In 1949-1950 this happened again. Jews returned to form the country of Israel for the first time in 2000 years. The next time this occurs is the Tetrad of 1967-1968. Israel captured the city of Jerusalem in the Six Day War and for the first time Jews pray at the holy wall in the city of their ancestors. In 2014 we have started a new Tetrad of Blood Moons which all fall on Jewish Feast Days.



Coinciding with the Shemitah is the last of the Blood Moon Tetrad – which “happens” to be a Super Blood Moon – on September 27-28, 2015. In our neck of the woods, the total lunar eclipse will occur around 9:30 PM on September 27. You can look HERE to see when the lunar eclipse is occurring near you.



I don’t know, really.  As you can see, I have been lightly following this … I am a bit intrigued by it. I know there is quite a buzz about all of this in parts of the Protestant world. Frankly, I don’t know if God will choose to use dates and signs in the sky to make His point … God is free to do whatever He wants. I know this seems to be His M.O. over history. Whether He will here, only God knows. But, I do know – and I have been saying this for a while – I remain confident that God, in His great love, is about to “spank His kids” … precisely because He loves us!! Realize that we just went “full-on Sodom and Gomorrah” with the Supreme Court redefining marriage during the year of the shemitah … and we know what happened there. I know I am not panicking or anything. If God wants to correct His children, then I say, “bring it.”
