What is all the buzz surrounding September 23rd, 2015? For starters, this is YOM KIPPUR or better known as the Day of Atonement…

It is the HOLIEST day in Israel..the Sabbath of Sabbaths..

And according to Sir Issac Newton, the Father of Physics, and a bible scholar, a very important day indeed has approached our generation almost completely unnoticed by the world and Israel.

What did Newton Discover?…Gravity…and this:

Sir Isaac Newton, who lived some 300 years ago (1642-1727), was one of the greatest geniuses in all history, with perhaps the highest I.Q of anyone in history. He is called “the father of modern science” and “the father of the industrial revolution.” He discovered many scientific laws. God chose Isaac Newton to impart many of His deepest secrets andisaac newtonriddles          .

There is strong evidence that God gave Newton the most mysterious secret and riddle of all — the timing and the events of the end of the age!

Newton was a devout believer in Christ and Bible scholar, fluent in ancient languages, and who translated directly from the Hebrew and Greek. He was unusually drawn to the prophet Daniel, which he began studying at age 12 and continued until he died at age 85. In fact,The Columbia History of the World, a secular history book, remarks, “At the end of his days he spent more time studying and writing about the prophecies in the Book of Daniel than he did in charting the heavens.”  Apparently, God Himself put in Newton’s heart this burning desire to study Daniel, then gave him the key to the timing of Christ’s return.

Could this be the final profound secret the Lord revealed to this godly genius near the end of his life — a secret “accidentally” discovered in the Library of Congress and republished just in the last few years — a secret so simple that most have missed it?

If Newton was correct in his interpretation of Daniel, the prophet to whom God gave specific timing, then the return of the Lord Jesus Christ will be very, very soon, indeed!

Newton’s understanding of one key passage in Daniel chapter 9 is fundamentally different from that of most common interpretations. In about 550 B.C., God gave the prophet Daniel a view of history to the end. From Daniel 9:25, scholars usually add the “seven weeks (of years, or 49 years) and 62 weeks (434 years)” to get 483 years and calculate the time of Messiah’s First Coming. However, Newton says there is no linguistic basis for adding those two numbers (49 and 434), and to do so is “doing violence to the language of Daniel.” Newton says the two numbers separately speak of both the First and Second Coming, both being counted from the “going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem.” Some commentators agree.

Newton says the “62 weeks,” or 434-year part was fulfilled at the First Coming, and the “seven weeks,” or 49-year part will apply to the Second Coming. And three centuries ago he saw in the Scriptures and wrote about the rebirth of Israel at a time when such a thought was preposterous. Amazingly by faith and understanding of the Scriptures, he foresaw a “friendly kingdom” someday again issuing the “commandment to restore and build Jerusalem.” Now, centuries later, that “friendly kingdom” may have been the United Nations, which decreed Israel’s rebirth in November, 1947, causing Israel to be reborn in May, 1948.

The above is taken from my essay on Newton written in the mid-1990s shortly after obtaining a copy of Newton’s commentary on Daniel from the doctor who discovered Thomas Jefferson’s personal and initialed copy of it in the Library of Congress, and who then got permission to reprint it in the original, difficult-to-read olde English script. 

The essay is athttp://choicesforliving.com/spirit/part3/newton.htm. However, my speculations back then wrongly assumed the final 49-year count began when Israel was born in 1948.  At the time, I thought we were so close to the Lord’s return it did not occur to me that the count should probably begin on June 7, 1967, when Israel captured Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

Now, Sid Roth of Messianic Vision ministry is promoting a new book on the subject,Newton’s Riddle by Neill G. Russell, which contains additional information about Newton and his understanding of the end times.

Sid says, “Before his death in 1727, Sir Isaac Newton, the famous physicist, concealed a prophetic script in one of his journals. This mysteriously coded script detailed crucial future events involving Israel and the return of Jesus. Incorporating Sir Isaac Newton’s extensive research, Bible prophecy, and the bond that exists between America and Israel during the final days of planet earth, Newton’s Riddle by Neill Russell is a captivating, suspenseful tale ripped from tomorrow’s headlines. I have never read such a current, prophetic book.Newton’s Riddle is a ‘now’ book for the most critical juncture in human history. You will not be able to put this biblical thriller down.”

Sid quotes from the book where it explains Newton’s calculations of adding 49 years to the June 1967 date.  Based on “Newton’s riddle” the book says, “Messiah’s possible return to earth will be on or before the year 2016.”

However, that is apparently based on using modern (365-day) years in the calculation.  As I pointed out in my e-mail dated February 20, 2008, if you use exactly 49 Jewish (360-day, prophetic) years from the day Israel captured the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967, you get 49 X 360 = 17640 days, which amazingly takes one exactly to

September 23, 2015, the Day of Atonement 2015…

Do I have your attention now?

There’s more…

It is on THIS day, September 23rd, 2015, that the 266th Pope will meet with President Obama on the 265th day of the year..in the White House…before speaking to Congress on the very next day.

It is the first time in the History of the Vatican that the Pope shall speak to Congress in such a formal way. According to the Vatican’s Website, and Cardinal Maradiaga the Pope will speak to Congress regarding:

Welcome immigrants:

Maradiaga reiterated that Francis would have liked to enter the U.S. by crossing the border with Mexico to make a point about welcoming immigrants, not building walls to keep them out. He said that while time did not allow for a border stopover, the pontiff was certain to raise the issue on Capitol Hill.

“Even here, the desert cannot be a tomb or a cemetery,” he said, referring to the migrants who often die trying to cross into Arizona or Texas.

Battle economic inequality:

“Capitalism is not a god. It is not a divinity. It is not a system that is perfect and does not need any modification,” he said during a luncheon meeting. “This system is fostering tremendous inequalities.”

A just economy means strong families:

Maradiaga indicated that promoting an economy that helps the struggling middle class and the poor in particular will also be key to the pope’s message of support for the family:

“The (free) market economy is not complete. We need a social market economy. This is the big contribution of the Catholic faith to the system — to try to have this social component that will bring more justice to the system,” he said. “It is not fair that a system that is producing so much richness could walk side by side with so much poverty.”

Protect the environment:

Francis is going to publish a major teaching document on the environment ahead of his U.S. visit, and observers expect the encyclical to accept the reality of climate change and mankind’s role in it, and to call for action to address the dangers:

“Do not expect statistics or numbers or theories” in the encyclical, Maradiaga said. “He will go directly to the responsibility of all the baptized, especially with creation. Because all of us have responsibility.

“I am clear. We cannot continue playing with creation and contaminating” the Earth, Maradiaga said. The pope seems to agree with him and will raise the issue in September — much to the consternation of many conservatives who have been trying to blunt the document’s impact even before it is published.

Fight partisanship:

“For many Catholics, first is the political party, then is the church,” Maradiaga said.

“I see this in some attitudes of citizens who are first Republicans or Democrats. Then comes Catholicism. This is a big problem. Because we have to put everything in order. God is first, then all other human institutions.”

Promote dialogue, not ideology:

“One of the conditions for a true dialogue is to have peace in your soul, peace in your personality, to be persons of peace. But when you are in the trenches, trying to defend ideologies, you’re not capable of a true dialogue,” Maradiaga said.

“Even the congresspeople can listen to other voices, to counsels, to advisers. It’s a human attitude that we have to develop. The one who receives advice commits less errors and is not mistaken. The one who does not like to listen to advice will have a lot of trouble. So I think the Congress will receive very well the advice (of the pope) — even if there are some things that will not be comfortable.”

Indeed, Maradiaga said both he and the pope are aware of the opposition he faces from many activists and pundits in the U.S., even as polls show that he is enormously popular with Catholics and the wider public, and across the political spectrum. (end of article)

Because the Pope is so well received in the USA, we believe that this speech will directly impact Congress’s decision to allow the deal with Iran to remain intact. Rome would like nothing more than to have COMPLETE control of Jerusalem….and this can only be accomplished if the State of Israel is divided.

We see how this Pope already refers to the PLO as the State of Palestine, and has also signed a treaty WITH the governing body representing Abbas and the PLO.

In addition, after the Pope speaks to Congress, there is another scheduled stop at The United Nations. Here, the Pope will broaden his one world agenda regarding equality for all.

The most significant prophecy however of all of this, is the day Issac Newton arrived at, and what is taking place on that day….and that day is September 23rd, 2015. This is the day and the year Issac Newton declares will be the beginning of Daniels 70th week.

This is also a Jubilee Year, commencing on September 13th, 2015. During the Jubilee year, should the day of Atonement land within that year, then the entire year is considered a Sabbatical year. Israel has approximately 10 days starting on September 23, to confess her sins before God…What happens if she doesnt?

As we have seen Elul 29 which fell on September 13th this year.

Just because that was the last day of the Shemitah does not necessarily mean that everything crashes on or around that day.  The whole summer season has been replete with economic disasters and financial catastrophes, regional wars and social cataclysms.

The bankruptcies of Greece and Puerto Rico are obvious examples.  The stock market crash in China was as bad as the crash of 1929.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average also saw a mini crash during August.  The U.S. national debt steadily approaches $19 trillion while the European Union is on the brink of fiscal collapse.  All of these events are manifestations of the Shemitah.

There can be no doubt that such a seven year cycle has been in effect for centuries, if not millennia.  Thus far the summer of 2015 has confirmed that and yet there are still other major happenings in store for this September and October.  In other words, the manifestation of the Shemitah has really only just begun.  In years past Shemitah events occurred in August, September and October, as well as before and after this specific time frame.
The 2015/2016 Time Frame is Unique and Different from Previous Shemitah Years

First of all, this past Shemitah year, which ended on September 13th, is followed by a Year of Jubilee, also known as the Super Shemitah. That in and of itself is a VERY big deal.  For the Jubilee overshadows the normal Shemitah events and creates a whole new calendrical dynamic.

Secondly, this Biblical Shemitah Jubilee, which begins on September 23rd, the Day of Atonement (aka Yom Kippur) has been identified as both the 70th and the 120th Jubilee, depending on the source.  In both instances, a very serious case can be made for an even more highly charged Jubilee year which begins on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015.

The following article presents a strong legalistic argument as to why Elul 29 did not manifest the expected Shemitah effects in the financial and economic realms.  While it offers a good explanation for this past Elul 29 non-event, it stays strictly within the narrow context of Judaic scriptures and the Hebrew calendar.  In that particular vein the authors of this essay are commended for providing an authoritative analysis.

Biblical Shemitah Jubilee Begins On 9/23/15, Anything Goes During The Super Shemitah

However, and it is a very big HOWEVER ….

The upcoming Super Shemitah is converging with other major calendrical predictions and scriptural prophecies from other religious and cultural traditions.  For instance, because the current race of humanity is experiencing the twilight of the Kali Yuga, these extremely powerful energies are also operative right now around the globe.  Conversely, the Mayan Long Count Calendar is also ending (or ended or will end shortly?) so those influences are operating at full tilt, especially if you correctly understand the nature of the Universal Creation Cycle of Mayan Cosmogony.

The Christian faith has a particularly well-defined End Time narrative as delineated by the Book of Revelation.  Likewise, the Buddhist and the Islamic religions have their own take on what might occur on Earth just prior to the coming of Maitreya and the Mahdi, respectively.

The critical point here is that such a convergence of so many diverse sources of prophecy has only served to intensify the collective outcomes across the entire planet.  In other words, it is NOT just the Judeo-Christian world with large Christian and Jewish populations that will be effected by the Super Shemitah.  Given the aforementioned confluence of so many calendrical predictions and scriptural prophecies, the entire civilization will be similarly affected.

What’s the real point here?

The whole world has been hardwired according to a number of different modern-era paradigms.  Virtually all of them are fatally flawed.

These represent the most basic foundational blueprints for both the infrastructure and superstructure of the current planetary civilization.  Whether one considers the hydrocarbon fuel paradigm (BP Gulf oil spill) or the nuclear power generation paradigm (Fukushima nuclear disaster), it is easy to see how defective and dangerous they both are.

Of course, on the financial and economic fronts the aforementioned link lays bare how dollar-denominated debt has positioned the planet on the cusp of the 2nd Great Depression.

Not only is the Almighty Dollar not so invincible, the USA is heavily burdened with a national debt fast approaching $19 trillion.  Because the Global Economic & Financial System has utilized the petrodollar as its reserve currency, the whole monetary order is now in very serious jeopardy.

CAVEAT About Debt:
The critical point made in the “Biblical Shemitah Jubilee” article linked above is that debt has been used as a weapon by the Judeo-Christian countries of the world.  Nations big and small, societies rich and poor have been systematically indebted by those who run the worldwide fractional reserve banking system.  These money changers have stealthily replaced all asset-backed currencies with worthless fiat money.  Often known as banksters for their unscrupulous practices, they have created a sovereign and corporate and personal debt crisis of truly epic proportions.  Because the two previous Shemitah cycles saw a substantial deepening of this global debt crisis, the present cycle must deal with it in a decisive way.  Rather than fixing this debt problem, the controllers made it considerably worse since the turn of the millennium.  Kicking the can down the road is no longer an option; hence, the day of reckoning is fast upon us … for the nation, for Western society, for the planetary civilization.

Because the Obama Administration and the FED, Germany and the ECB, the IMF and the World Bank, and other involved parties refuse to deal with this demanding and festering problem, it will be dealt with by way of divine intervention.

This particular predicament is at the very crux of the outworking of the Super Shemitah. Because the U.S. Dollar still remains the world’s reserve currency, its destiny will affect every nation that is dependent upon it.  Likewise, all the banks and brokerage houses, hedge funds and pension funds that have placed their faith in dollar-denominated assets and liabilities will go the way of the greenback.  This basically means all of Western Civilization.

The real problem with this international state of affairs is that the whole GE&FS has proven itself to be unsustainable.  Completely unrealistic revenue targets and income goals based on the expectations of continuous year-over-year growth are inherently flawed.  The capitalistic economic model that demands perpetual growth is likewise deficient and unsound.  Hence, the current corporate approach toward maximizing short-term earnings at the expense of more important long-term objectives is coming to an end.  So is the present form of predatory capitalism which is absolutely necessary for ever-increasing growth rates.  This is precisely why the USA requires a perpetual war economy to maintain the status quo.

Given this background, it is now easy to see that the global financial architecture is operating under great stress, just as the worldwide economic foundation is revealing cracks which only grow in depth and breadth.  These two realities point directly to an unavoidable breakdown.  The BRICS-allied nations are well aware of this eventuality and have been taking various precautionary measures.  The more quickly that BRICS moves away from the U.S. Dollar, the more this process will hasten the collapse of the current incarnation of the Global Economic & Financial System, which began with the Bretton Woods Agreement.


Putin says dump the dollar

No matter where you look in any sphere of life, there is an alarming degree of breakdown and degradation.  As a matter of fact, the entire planet is experiencing a phenomenon known as “technospheric breakdown”.  Every sector of society that utilizes antiquated or worn out technology is experiencing slow-motion disintegration. This pervasive and persistent deterioration will inevitably manifest as a whole host of industrial accidents and transportation mishaps, system failures and infrastructure breakdown.  Sometimes an outright collapse can occur much like the Twin Towers fell into their own footprint on 9/11 (an omen, yes?), although that was a perfectly controlled demolition executed by the U.S. Government.

That’s exactly where humanity sits right now.  The Super Shemitah is merely the temporal doorway through which the civilization is now passing.  Kind of like trying to pass through the eye of a needle.  Whatever doesn’t work — and there is a LOT that doesn’t — will be discarded.  Only in this way will there be sufficient space made for the new and necessary replacement paradigms of the new era.


The timing of the Super Shemitah is not coincidental; it was divinely ordained for this moment in time.  The innate power of the Super Shemitah guarantees that what must come to pass will do so … right on schedule.  Hence, all the Shemitah naysayers are speaking far too soon, for the grand finale has yet to begin as of this date.

As a matter of fact, because both the letter and spirit of the Shemitah “law” have been violated, the upcoming year will unfold in a manner that will make straight what is now quite crooked.  The Super Shemitah will likely come like a thief in the night, both literally and figuratively.  Therefore, it behooves the wise and the righteous to sleep with one eye open for the next year.

There are other things which can be done on a spiritual level which can significantly mitigate the personal effects of this highly consequential period.  Those spiritual practices which have always borne fruit ought to be engaged on a regular basis.  Prayer and meditation, fasting and repentance, self inquiry and contemplating scripture, selfless service and giving of alms*, are just a few of the daily practices which can serve to protect one’s mind and body, as well as safeguard one’s home and property.

*The Day of Atonement (Evening of September 22nd thru the 23rd) was especially reserved for these spiritual practices. 

At the end of the day, it is how we face our trials and tribulations which matters the most. What happens in our life is mostly determined by destiny, and therefore cannot be changed.  However, we can always alter our attitude in such a way so that we meet our challenges with resolve and dispassion.  Truly, it is equanimity and equipoise that will best serve us in the days ahead.

“Courage is grace under pressure.”
