The Final Countdown: Preparing for What’s Next

Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall Down (2 of 5)

November 9, 2014 CFBC, Chester, IL Dr. Mike Fogerson, Speaker

Introduction:

A The five keys of the Shemitah (Sabbatical year) were taught last Sunday.

1 These keys are:

a 7th year

b 586 BC & the Judgement sign (490 year = 70 Shemitahs)

c Prophetic Manifestation (Econ/Financial realms)

d Secret Israel

e Tishri Connection

aa Trishri (Sept/Oct)

bb Elvl 29 {Major refresh}

2 Shemitah can be understood in two lights:

a Observance vs Prophetic sign.

aa Only Israel was required to keep the Shemitah as an observance – only applies to one nation.

bb As an observance the Shemitah is every year.

cc The Shemitah as a “prophetic sign” isn’t bound to a schedule/calendar/nation... when it does manifest it will look like the Shemitah in effect. (Econ, finances, national trouble, recession, depression, etc)

b Since we are not Israel, our concern is on the prophetic sign of the Shemitah.

aa It operates/affects our economy/finances.

bb We are not dealing with the observance but the prophetic sign, we shouldn’t expect the Shemitah to occur on a regular basis. (Every 7 years) but a unique phenomenon... it’s not simple formulaic... fingerprints, yes!

B In 586 BC, the Shemitah appears as a prophetic sign against Ancient Israel; a nation in moral/spiritual apostasy from God.

1 America & Ancient Israel have a unique connection.

a Established/patterned after Ancient Israel.

b Our nations are spiritually related.

2 Shemitah is linked to national judgement and national blessing.

a If the nation is on it’s foundation - Blessing!

b If the nation has turned away from God - judgment!

T.S. Using what we know so far we’re going backstage - looking behind the curtain at the greatest economic/financial collapses of modern times - we’ll see fingerprints of the Shemitah.

I What happens when Shemitah hits wall st?

A We’re going to look at the great long-term stock market in history, through the Shemitah.

1 The crash of 2000-2001 (.com crash & 9/11)

a The first Shemitah of the new millennium fell in 2000-2001.

aa Stock market lost 37% of it’s value.

bb Busting of the .com bubble (pets.com, books-amillion)

cc 9/ll attacks

b The effects were felt for months... this collapse overlaps 100& with the Shemitah year.

2 The crash of 1916 -1917 (WWI, 40% market wiped out.)

a The Shemitah began on Sept. 16th and two months later the stock market collapsed.

b The overlap of this crash is over 80%.

3 The crash of 1973 (45% market wiped out; 60% overlapped with Shemitah)

4 The crash of 1901-1903 (46% wiped out - 100% over Shemitah)

5 The crash of 1937-1938 (The day after Shemitah began, by June 1938 4 million people unemployed - Shemitah’s prophetic sign)

6 The crash of 2007-2008 (Great recession, worst financial crisis since the great depression; within 30 days of the start of the Shemitah in 2007, the SM collapsed.)
