The Rise and Fall of the United States of America

I usually post on Mondays but I had to get this out NOW.


There are those where I pastored and where I have preached since that say God has given me great revelations. I appreciate that and I humbly receive whatever God gives me, as I know I am not smart enough to figure it out on my own.

That being said, I feel burdened to share with you something I did not receive myself but rather heard it from, what I believe, to be a last-days Jewish Prophet, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. Before any great judgment, God has always raised up prophets to warn us.

You may be aware of Rabbi Cahn’s book, The Harbinger. Rabbi Cahn has had a revelation regarding the cycle of the Sabbath Year or Shmita (Pronounced-Shmee-tah) which rolls around every seven years.

Read on for the possible future of America…

Shmita means -release, fall, collapse, or shaking.

Every Sabbath Year, that is every seventh year, there would be a rest called the Shmita. There is no sewing or reaping of the land and on the last of the Shmita, Elul 29th on the Hebrew calendar, all debt is wiped away, the financial accounts of the nation are wiped clean.

This was to be a blessing but when Israel turns away from God, the Shmita comes back as a sign of judgment on a nation that is driving God out of it’s life.

The defeat by King Nebuchadnezzar and the exile in Babylon was timed according to how many Shmitas Israel broke.

(Note: 2 Chron. 36:21. God made the sabbath a key part of creation. To recognize God’s ownership of everything, the seventh day is holy to Him. Breaking the Sabbath day is a serious sin because it denies God’s sovereignty. The Sabbath rest is so important that God applied it to creation itself. Every seventh year, the land was to lay fallow. The Israelites were not to sow or reap. Whatever grew on its own could be eaten, but the land was not to be farmed. As a symbol of God’s ownership, it was to rest Lev. 25:1-7. God promised an abundant crop in the sixth year, so no one would go hungry during the following Shmita. Lev. 25:20-22.

God basically said, “If you will not recognize My ownership and give the land its rest, I’ll do it Myself, because it is that important to Me.” So the Israelites had to leave, and the land rested for 70 years. How the people must have wished they had recognized God’s ownership and kept his Sabbaths! A lesson for us?)

It not only wipes away financial accounts, it wipes away cities and nations.

Look at the last 40 years of our nation from an economic standpoint. There have been 5 major economic collapses.

  1. 1973
  2. 1980
  3. 1987
  4. 2000
  5. 2007

What do these years have in common? They are seven years apart and every one is during the year of the Shmita. 100%.

Going back farther, the 3rd greatest crash in history – 1937-1938. When was the Shmita during that time? 1937-1938. In fact the day after Shmita begins, Wall Street collapsed.

What about the great recession we all remember in 2007-2008? When was the last Shmita? 2007-2008. In fact, on Elul 29th, the day appointed to wipe out financial accounts, the stock market collapsed.

Right after this peak day of the Shmita in 1929, the greatest crash in American history occurs, the Great Depression.

The mystery of the Tower.

The Hebrew word for Tower is Migdal, which comes from the word Godel meaning Greatness. So there is a link between towers being built and a nation’s greatness, it’s pride, it’s glory. The first example of this comes from the Tower of Babel. They said, “Let us make a name for ourselves”- Gen. 11:4.

Do the rising of towers mark the rising of a nation’s power? From the Middle Ages, the largest towers on earth were in Europe, and Europe was the center of world power. In 1870, a change took place. The largest tower was built in a new land, the United States of America. The next year, America becomes the strongest economic power on earth. From then on, America keeps building the largest towers on earth, as it’s power keeps growing and growing.

In 1945 at the end of WWII, at the height of American power, there is a plan to build a new tower that will represent America’s greatness, the World Trade Center.

  • The World Trade Center towers were conceived and designed in 1945, the year of the Shmita.
  • Construction begins in 1966, the year of the Shmita.
  • It is completed in 1973, the year of the Shmita.
  • It is destroyed in 2001, the year of the Shmita.

Towers are about rising.

The Shmita is about falling.

The towers are about the glory of man.

The Shmita is about humbling the pride of man or the pride of a nation.

The Shmita wipes out accounts that are built up, it also wipes out realities that are built up. The Twin Towers of the Word Trade Center are destroyed, as the Shmita is coming up on it’s peak time, the last week of the Shmita, approaching Elul 29 when accounts are wiped out. The collapse of the tower causes the collapse of Wall Street. So the pride of the nation and the financial prosperity of the nation both collapse during the Shmita.

So if the rise of a tower speaks of the rise of a nation, what does the fall of a tower speak of?

The new World Trade Center building was conceived during the year of the Shmita with a vow of defiance on Capital Hill.

Could the Shmita hold the key to the rise and fall of nations?

In 1917, the year of the Shmita, there is a collapse on Wall Street but there is also a shaking of the nations called World War One. Four empires collapsed as a result of this war: German, Hungarian, Russian, and Ottoman. It is also the year that America begins it’s rise as a serious world power.

Four Shmitas later, 28 years, there is another global shaking called WWII. In fact, Adolph Hitler began his attacks in 1938, the year of the Shmita. Go seven years later to 1945, WWII ends during the peak of Shmita when the day of “wiping out” or “nullifying” takes place. The greatest wiping out of all time comes during this time called the Atomic Bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. The war ends on the last week of the Shmita, in fact the allies have a victory celebration in Berlin on the day of the end of the Shmita, September 7th, 1945. This catapults America as a world super power.

The Shmita can also point to the fall of a nation. Four Shmitas later, 1973, America legalizes the killing of unborn children. This is also the same year America loses it’s first war, Viet Nam, on the same day, August 15th, that America won the last war during the Shmita. 1973 was also the same year the World Trade Center was completed. Two conflicting symbols, the rising and the falling. Does this mean we have a choice of which path to take? Does this mean we were at a crossroads? Could we repent, turn back to God and stop judgment?


When is the next Shmita? It begins this year on September 25th and goes through September 13th, 2015.

The pattern has been that not much happens near the beginning of the Shmita, but toward the end, toward the crescendo leading up to the day of Elul 29th when all accounts were to be wiped out, that’s when things have typically happened.

It seems the mystery is becoming more precise and intense. During the last two Shmitas, the greatest stock market crash in history happened in 2001 on the day of Elul 29th. Seven years later, 2008, the other greatest stock market crash, worse than 2001, took place again on Elul 29th.

Does this intensifying mean we are progressing toward judgment?

Obviously God does not HAVE to do anything during this next Shmita…but I would still be aware and ready.

As a side note, the Blood Moons are occurring during this time, as well. It is like a convergence of warnings. There is also a solar eclipse that will take place on September 13th, 2015. When did I tell you this next Shmita will end? September 13th, 2015. The last time a solar eclipse happened on Elul 29 was in 1987 which was followed shortly thereafter by “Black Monday”, a huge stock market crash.

Are you familiar with the year of Jubilee? Jubilee rolls around every seven shmitas, or 49 years, a year after the 7th Shmita.

Leviticus 25:8-13 tells us, And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.

Jubilee is about restoration, getting back your land, getting back your inheritance. 2000 years ago, Israel lost it’s inheritance, lost the Promised Land.

In 1917, the year after the Shmita, the Balfour Declaration is signed, giving the land back to Israel.

7 Shmitas later (the year after, being Jubilee), in 1967, Jerusalem is restored to the Jewish people.

The next Jubilee will be after the next Shmita. The next Shmita is 2015 which means the next Jubilee will be 2016.

Could this next be the wrap up of everything? No man knows the day or the hour but He did tell us to watch and be aware.

I felt I needed to share.
