On the Possibility of the Rapture of September 2021
Disclaimer about this Theory
This rapture theory is a pre-tribulation rapture theory. As we do not believe in a pre-tribulation rapture due to the amount of basis that resides in the self-proclaimed apostle Paul's writing, we do not believe in this theory. Nevertheless, it is an interesting theory worthy of discussion, as it details some of the Jewish Feasts, explains certain idioms that Jesus used, and also provides a somewhat logical way of interpreting the number of weeks in Daniel 9 and 12. Furthermore, simply because the rapture will not occur in September 2021, does not mean that nothing will happen in that year.
The author of this theory also believes that the Kingdom of God is not here today. This is wrong, the Kingdom is here today.

Disclaimer about the Author
The author of this book has not made his finding available for free, which goes against the existence of this website. As such, we have decided to withhold his name and the name of the book from our article about his theory. This is somewhat ironic, as the author writes, "Thanks to the advent of computers, the average truth-seeker can harness the truth from the internet and in turn, begin to destroy the walls of deception that have been built around him/her and society in general." I guess the average truth-seeker also has access to nearly unlimited amount of money to throw at every potential theory that pops up.
The author also holds some other beliefs as well. Like us, he believes that false teachings and pagan celebrations have spread through the Christian faith. Unlike us, he also believes it is important to be a European or a Jew, as that means you are either from the branch of Ephraim or Judah. This is a belief that goes by the name of "BritAm." The author also believes that you must call God and Jesus by their proper names, יהוה and Yahshua. We simply used God and Jesus, as per the standard English translations.
The author also explicitly uses The Scripture 2009 as his personal Bible, but recommends the Tree of Life for "Messianic believers." We will continue to use the King James Bible instead.
Disclaimer about the Book
The book was severely disjointed. The author has a habit of writing statements, but not logically connecting them together for multiple paragraphs at a time. He expects the reader to infer the logic themselves. As such, we have carefully placed the 69,000 disjointed words of the author into a logical order for everyone's convenience. We try to keep the information the author specified in each of their seven chapters, but for some subjects this was impossible to do while maintaining cohesion and clarity.

The Feasts, the Idioms, and the Ancient Jewish Wedding
There are seven ancient Jewish feasts of note.
In the Spring, there are the feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Shavuot (Pentecost). These four spring feasts represent love, humbleness, and servitude. They perfectly depict the Messiah as a suffering and humble servant. Setting aside his power, Jesus willfully died on Passover on a Roman cross, was laid to rest just before the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and three days later was resurrected on the Feast of First Fruits, conquering death. And of course, on Shavuot, which is the same day as Pentecost, the 120 believers received the Holy Spirit.Acts 2:1-2.
In the Fall, there are the feasts of Yom Teruah (Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), and Tabernacles. These three feasts represent power and authority. The author believes that Jesus will fulfill these Fall feasts just like the Spring Feasts, but instead of love and servitude, Jesus will come as a king, with power and great authority. Before the Fall feasts, there is a season known as "Teshuvah," which can be translated as "repentance." The author never defines repentance, but in his usage he seems to use the same meaning as Jesus, which is to say that repentance means "a changing of mind."Naturally, any definition of repentance that requires sin would make God out to be a sinner, as God repents often. So it is a good sign that he is using this definition.
The author goes into deep detail about each feast and why they are important. However, this is free information, and not worth purchasing a book for. The most important things to know for the author's rapture theory is that the Spring feasts have been fulfilled, but the Fall feasts have not.
Yom Teruah (The Feast of Trumpets)
The most important feast for this theory is Yom Teruah, the Feast of Trumpets. Yom Teruah also starts the civil new year, and always starts on the day of Tishri 1 and marks the beginning of the Fall feast days. Yom Teruah starts when the crescent moon is first visible in Jerusalem, and so can vary the length of a Jewish year by one day, depending on which day it falls on.
On Yom Teruah, trumpets are blown in a very specific pattern. The 100th trumpet blast is know as the Tekiah Gedolah, or the Last Trump. These trumpets are a call to search our hearts to change our ways before Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) just 10 days later.
Until the invention of the computer, we were unable to determine whether the crescent moon would be visible in Jerusalem or not, and so "no man knew the day or hour" that Yom Teruah would start. This distinction was lost and separated from our modern Jewish calendar around 320AD, when Hillel II made a calendar system that used math to determine the years instead of the sighting of the crescent moon. As such, the author instead uses modern day mathematics to determine when Yom Teruah is visible, and also when the Jewish New Year starts.
The author holds the common pre-tribulation rapture belief that when Jesus said,
Indeed, the self-proclaimed apostle Paul wrote,
Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement)
Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year, and is the only feast day where everyone in Israel is required to fast all day to look deep within their spirit to change their ways (repent) to God's way. On Yom Kippur, Isaiah 61 is read, which happens to be the same scripture that Jesus read when he began his ministry. When he said "this has come true," he was claiming to be the Messiah.
Isaiah 58 is all about Yom Kippur, and identifies this day as a day of Judgment, and God is looking for people that are seeking forgiveness. (Isaiah 58:5.) Some people say that we can ignore this day due to Jesus's death, but the author disagrees. The author then says that Yom Kippur is supposed to be a day of liberty, and those who trust in Jesus will be given liberty.
Yom Kippur is also the start of the jubilee (a count of 50 year cycles, see Leviticus 25:8-9) every 50th Yom Kippur. The author claims that the 1967/68 year (the year Israel retook Jerusalem) was a jubilee, and this plays into his theory quite a bit.
Feast of Tabernacles
The author also talks about the Feast of Tabernacles, but it's not relevant to anything else in his book. Two tetrads of blood moons recently ended on the Feast of Tabernacles, both in 1967/68 and in 2014/15. Joel 2:31-32 likely references this. This tetrad of blood moons is incredibly rare, and there have only been 9 since Jesus was born. The last tetrad before these two was in 1493/94, when the Spanish Inquisition was causing harm to Jews.
Next, let's talk about calendars. We use the modern Gregorian calendar, which is a solar calendar based on the earth's revolutions around the sun. It is thus impossible to use this calendar with biblical prophecy, because it is based on the sun and doesn't take into account the moon at all.
The Jewish day starts at sunset, while ours starts at midnight. Thus, most people are awake when the day changes in the Jewish calendar, but not when ours changes. This also means that night always precedes the day in the Jewish calendar.
The bible only mentions the name of four lunar months. Aviv (first month), Ziv (second month), Ethanim (seventh month), Bul (eighth month). After the Babylon exile, the Bible gives a list of Babylonian names for the Jewish months. The Jewish calendar system uses these Babylonian names, such as the month of Nisan (first month) and Tishri (seventh month). The author chooses to use these Babylonian names because while it is important to call God and Jesus by foreign names, it is not important to honor what they chose to call months.
The author then goes into way too much detail on how modern Jews usually calculate their calendar, but as previously stated, he doesn't care about that, so we will just give some basics. Note, there is also a discussion on why a calendar based on barely ripening Abib/Aviv means ripening barley in Hebrew, see Exodus 13:4, 23:15, 34:18, Deuteronomy 16:1, and Leviticus 23:15 is useless. Basically, without a record of when barley ripened in the past, we cannot know what day is actually which day.
The Jewish calendar says it is 5781. On Tishri 1, 2020, Rosh Hashanah of last year, it changed to 5781. Thus, there have been 5781 years since the creation of Adam and Eve... but this is wrong! Biblical records, so say the author, place Adam and Eve closer to the 6,000 year mark.
Another important part about the Hebrew calendar is that it uses a 360 day lunar calendar, much like the contemporary Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Indians, Persians, Hindus, and Mayans. Prophetically, the Bible seems to use a 360 day calendar as well, and we'll see this when we look at Daniel Chapter 9 and 12.
Parables and "Spiritual Connections"
From here, the author talks in general about parables, saying that they reveal greater truth. However, the author does not provide a systematic method of understanding parables at all.Unlike us. See our parables page for more information. Additionally, most parables are about the Kingdom of God which exists here on earth, today. Since the author is ignorant of this fact, it is hard to believe any statement he makes regarding the Kingdom of God. It seems that the author decided to put faith in a rapture to escape death rather than simply listen to and believe Jesus.
The author makes a "spiritual connection" to 1 Thessalonians 5:1-5 for us, and translates the idioms in them for us. Apparently, these verses mean,
From here, the author goes really deep into Hebrew to prove his point. However, it is not a requirement to know and speak Hebrew (or Greek, or Latin) to know and love God, or to understand his words. Do not be fooled into thinking that if you don't know Hebrew you're just out of luck and there is no way to understand rapture theory unless you listen to this guy's work. At best, knowledge of Hebrew is helpful, at worst, it will dictate your beliefs and heighten your ego.
The Ancient Hebrew Wedding
The traditional ancient Jewish wedding had twelve individual steps.
- 1. The selection of the bride by the son's father.
- 2. The establishment of the bridal price and acceptance.
- 3. The bride and groom are betrothed to one another once the bridal price is accepted.
- 4. A written document drawn up containing the promises of the groom and the rights of the bride.
- 5. The bride's acceptance and consent.
- 6. Gifts were given to the bride and the covenant was sealed once the bride drank from the cup of wine.
- 7. The bride has her mikvah (Baptism), which is a ritual cleansing.
- 8. The bridegroom departs from her, going back to his father's house far away to prepare the bridal chamber.
- 9. The bride was "set apart" until his return typically one to two years.
- 10. The bridegroom would return for her, upon the approval from his father. He would return with a company of wedding guests, with the blowing of the shofar and with a shout, "Behold the bridegroom comes."
- 11. The bridegroom would abduct or rapture his bride, usually in the middle of the night. The expression used was as "a thief in the night."
- 12. Lastly, there would be "the marriage supper" with a host of wedding guests who had been invited by the groom's father. It would last for seven days.
The author goes through all twelve steps and relates them to Jesus's coming, but the exact details aren't relevant to the author's overall purpose of this book. As such, we skip over this portion. We are more interested in his claims regarding the rapture in September 2021, which is the purpose of his book.
The author makes a point that Jesus refused to drink the fruit of the vine in Matthew 26:29. The author states that Jesus has still not done this... however Jesus clearly drank of the fruit of the vine in John 19:29-30. So the author is actually just wrong. Instead of reading the text that is there, the author decided to do some more "spiritual connection" to these verses to determine what they actually mean, and his result is, "We see that Yahshua clearly identified this 4th cup as the cup of the renewed covenant of restoration or the b'rit chadashah applied as the 'renewed covenant in my blood.'" The author never bothers to describe what this means, or even what the b'rit chadashah is.
And with this, you can see what diving too deeply and taking verses out of context can result in. Simply because you are able to make a connection on a metaphorical level does not mean that you should make it. Instead of trying to attach old testament verses to Jesus's sayings, and thus bursting the wine sack(Mark 2:22) you should attach Jesus's sayings to Jesus's sayings. Also, the author states that if you partake of communion, a Christian tradition, you are entering into a marriage covenant. The author never stops to think why a person needs to re-enter a marriage covenant on a weekly basis.

The Latter Years & the Shemitah Pattern of Seven
Some History about Modern Israel
To fully understand the author's theory, we need to know some information about Israel. The Jews were conquered and assimilated into other tribes, then they came back together after 1800 years into Israel. As previously mentioned, the author does not believe in replacement theology
The author points out that most pre-20th century biblical scholars must have believed that any scripture related to Israel and their land must have been an allegory and not literal, as no nation has ever un-assimilated back into their homeland before. This is generally referred to as replacement theology, and used to be relatively common, now only the older branches of Christianity believe in it.
This return to the homeland sets the stage for the end times. The author goes into the history of this accomplishment, starting from the Russian and Eastern European Jews in 1905 during the Zionist movement, as well as mentioning the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which gained backing by the U.N. and the US after the holocaust.
After this, the author also talks about how Jerusalem was recaptured by Judah during the 6-Day War on 6/7/67. Try to remember this date, as it is very important for the author's theory.
Daniel Chapter 12
Daniel Chapter 12 is an important chapter as it's the one applying to us today, even though it's over 2,200 years old. The author points out verses 1, 2, 7, 11, and 12. The time of great distress spoken in verse one will, so says the author, "initiate or bring rise to the anti-Christ." This great distress will allow humanity to view this future leader as a messiah-like figure. This distress is similar to Jeremiah 30:7-8, so both are likely referencing the tribulation.
The author makes another "spiritual connection" with Daniel 12:1, translating it from a translation of a translation for us, saying that it describes a period when, "they have ended scattering the power of the set-apart people, then all these shall be completed." The author then explains for us, the set-apart people are the Jewish People. The author then states that the Jewish people will suffer, then Jesus, a messiah that they don't recognize, will save them at their greatest hour of need.
Next, the author introduces the shemitah. Seven is a special number. It's the number of perfection. It's God's number. It defines God and is synonymous with the eternal plan. It is one way that God communicates. Seven is even better because it ends six and begins seven. This number is so special, we must use a new term for it. The author chooses "shemitah." This is actually a specific unit of time, it is the seventh unit of time, and has to be preceded by six units of time. You might call this a Sabbath, but you're wrong. It's the Shemitah. (In actuality, the shemitah is the final year in a seven-year cycle of debt forgiveness and land use. See Exodus 21:2, 23:10-11, Leviticus 25:1-7, Deuteronomy 15:1-6, 31:10-13.)
The author then explains this Shemitah as the Jewish Sabbath in the longest explanation I have ever seen. Just know that the Hebrew day ends after just after sunset, and that the author believes that at this precise moment, is "the twinkle of the eye."
The Shemitah Release Day
The Shemitah Release Day is also an important concept to know. This is the day when debts and captives are supposed to be set free from their bondage. It was supposed to happen the day before Yom Teruah every 7th year.Deuteronomy 15:1. The author alleges that it is this day that is observed and identified by God in modern times.
For instance, on September 17th, 2001, (the eve of Yom Teruah) the stock market reopened and dropped 7%, the largest drop ever recorded. This happened again exactly 7 years (a shemitah) later on September 29th, 2008, when the market lost 777.7 points, 7% of the market. This also happened on the eve of Yom Teruah.
Discussing about Millennia
Also note that time begin circa 4000 BC, and it is now 2000 AD, so about 6000 years have passed. So the next 1000 years would be the shemitah millennium. Just as there is a "twinkle of the eye" at the turn of a day, so too is it there at the turn of the millennium.(Note that while we are currently around year 5781 in the Jewish calendar, the author believes based on "the biblical record" that we are actually closer to 6000.)
The important part is that it partitions time down into millennia, and there are 20 jubilee in a millennia (50 years times 20 is 1,000 years). So there are seven millennia that contain four ages. The first age is 40 jubilees, from Adam to Abraham, known as the Age of Desolation. The next age, from Abraham to Jesus was the Age of Instruction. Our current age would be the Age of Messiah, even though he is not on Earth right now. The last age only lasts 20 jubilee instead of 40, and is the millennial reign, known as the Age of Life. Just like how the sabbath is the seventh day, a day of rest, so too is the 7th millennium, which is Jesus's reign and we're right before that.
The author then describes the 1918 to 1968 solar jubilee. But first, the Jubilee year of 1917. The Balfour Declaration that, I quote, "established a Jewish State in a letter," was dated November 2, 1917. This resulted in some British General taking Jerusalem during Hanukkah on December 11, 1917.(By the way, Hanukkah is not one of the 7 spring or falls feasts, and so it is not an important feast.) On June 7, 1967, directly before the jubilee year but in the 49th year Shemitah, Israel regained control of Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights. Essentially, we can understand that things happen in a series of 50 years for Israel. The author also later claims that the tetrad of blood moons in 1967/68 are another sign that this year was a jubilee.
The 1968 to 2018 solar jubilee. Three main events took place during the 49th shemitah year (2017) and the 2018 jubilee year. First, Donald Trump was elected President despite the evil left. Second, the Revelation 12 Sign on September 23, 2017 (on the eve of Yom Teruah 2017) occurred, heralding the beginning of the 50th year of Jubilee. Third, President Trump decreed Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel on December 6, 2017, and six months later the US Consulate moved its office to Jerusalem. Clearly, the author believes these events to be as important as retaking Jerusalem for the Jews for some reason.
Also, the UN enacted resolutions during the shemitah years within a jubilee, ever since June 1967. These resolutions led to peace talks, even though they are mostly condemnations of Israel from the UNSC. However, some peace treaties took place during Shemitah periods, such as the Oslo Accords, the Camp David and Taba Summit, and the Annapolis Conference.

Messiah's Jubilee & Daniel's Seven Weeks
62 and 7 Weeks and the Cutting Off of the Messiah
From here, we see that there are 62 and 7 weeks from the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Messiah. But after 62 weeks, the Messiah shall be cut off. Credit should go to Sir Robert Anderson, d. 1918, London, English for the following interpretation. Artaxerxes Longimanus was the Persian King who reigned for 40 years from 464 to 424BC. His 20th year reign would have taken place around 444BC. Remember that we earlier said that the Bible uses 360 days in a year prophetically. Let's look at an example of that now.
Anderson places the edict as occurring on March 445BC, then he took 69 weeks * 7 days * 360 days/year to get to the number 173,880 days. This is the sixty nine years that is mentioned in Daniel. That places the time period that the Messiah is identified at 32AD. Assuming some minor errors, we can safely assume that the Messiah should have been identified between 29AD and 33AD... which is what happened. If we used 365.24 days in a year, we would have ended up in 37AD, a little too late for the Messiah correspondingly identifying himself in actual history.
So, putting it logically, From the edict to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Messiah shall be 7 and 62 weeks.
- 1 week = 7 Lunar Years (360 days) = 2520 days
- 7 weeks = 49 Lunar Years (360 days) = 17,640 days = 1 Jubilee
- 69 weeks = 173,880 Days = 483 lunar years = 476.0705 SOLAR years (365.24 days)
- 446BC = Edict was approximately given.
- 446BC - 476 Solar Years - 1 (there is no 0BC or 0AD) = 29AD
- The Messiah should be cut off at this time.
- Jesus Christ was cut off at this time.
The Prophetic Clock Stopped and the Messianic Age
But, when Jesus Christ died, the prophetic clock stopped, all the way from 29AD until 1967, roughly 1938 years. On June 7th, 1967, the governing authority of Jerusalem was released back to the nation of Israel during the 6-Day war.Fun Fact: Considering that the Israelites lost Jerusalem in 597BCE, then June 1967 marks the 2563 year anniversary since the nation of Israel had lost Jerusalem. This is when the "Church Age" ended and the "Messianic Age" begins.
We know when the prophetic clock begins again because of the clues in Daniel 9:24-27. There is a separation of 7 weeks from the 62. The only reason to separate these 7 weeks is because there is a split in there, otherwise they would have just said 69 weeks. Secondly, regarding the 70th week, many people believe that the passage saying, "he will make a covenant with the many for one week," is about the 70th week.
The Messianic Age will end on the actual physical return of Jesus, which will then begin the One Thousand Year Millennial Reign of Jesus, as documented in the Book of Revelation. As such, the Messianic Age is a precisely calculated set of days that will expire in some future month of September.
The Hidden Lunar Jubilee and the Ending of the 69th Week
However, this is a hidden lunar jubilee, which matches the exact definition of a jubilee as found in Leviticus 25:8-10, and also ends on the Day of Atonement. This hidden jubilee is 17,640 days, the same number of days as Daniel's lunar jubilee that began in 446BC. This Jubilee began on June 7th, 1967. This Jubilee is Daniel's 7 weeks. Both jubilees lasted 17,640 lunar days and contain seven sets of shemitah years, or seven sets of 2520 days.
If June 7, 1967 is day number 1 of the 63rd week, then when would the 69th week end? The answer is that it would end 17,640 days later on September 23rd, 2015, which, according to the Creator's Calendar, was the eve of Yom Kippur.
This means that Yom Kippur 2015 was the end of the 69th week on the prophetic time clock, and that it was also the exact start of the 70th week of Daniel's 70th week prophecy. If we calculate the days based on the lunar cycle, we then see that the 70th week ends on August 17, 2022.
The author uses the signs in the sky to help certify his claim. There were two tetrads of blood moons that ended on the Feast of Tabernacles, both in 1967/68 and in 2014/15 (the beginning and end of a jubilee). As we know, the one in 1967/68 brought back Jerusalem to Israel. The 2014/15 blood tetrad announced Daniel's 70th week, or so says the author.
However, the blood moon tetrad, while very rare, isn't common enough for us to agree with that claim that we are in the 70th week of Daniel. However, the author also points to the Revelation 12 sign we saw on Yom Teruah, September 23rd, 2017. We assume most readers are already familiar with this sign. The author points out that the sign occurred 1335 days after Yom Teruah 2015, and promises to explain more in the future, but that explanation does not make any sense.
However, the author argues that we should now start using the solar calendar instead of the lunar calendar at this point because "now there is a need to balance out the moon and the feasts with the solar year." The author believes that Yom Kippur 2015 connected the 2520 lunar days from Daniel 9 and the 2550 solar days from Daniel 12. The 2550 days come from the fact that there is a need to include a 13th month in the Hebrew calendar nearly once every three years. One example given is that the number of lunar cycles from the month of Tishri to the month of Tishri over a 7 year period could either be 86 (with 2 extra intercalary months) or 87 (with 3 extra intercalary) months. As such, we can see that this extra month needs to be accounted for. The author goes into a lot of rather hard to understand detail regarding this in chapter 5.) He essentially claims that this week must become lunisolar and not just lunar, and that this occurred on Yom Teruah 2014.
The 70th Week
Most people believe that Daniel's 70th week is a prophetic future seven years that will bring chaos and great distress. The author disagrees, and believes this week started on Yom Kippur 2015, and that the 7th year Shemitah of the 70th week will begin on Yom Teruah 2021. (Hence, September 2021.) On Yom Teruah 2022, he expects the Antichrist to make a covenant with "the many."
That means that
Day 1 of Year 1 of the 70th Week began Yom Kippur 2015.
Day 1 of Year 2 of the 70th Week began Yom Teruah 2016.
Day 1 of Year 3 of the 70th Week began Yom Teruah 2017.
Day 1 of Year 4 of the 70th Week began Yom Teruah 2018.
Day 1 of Year 5 of the 70th Week began Yom Teruah 2019.
Day 1 of Year 6 of the 70th Week began Yom Teruah 2020.
Day 1 of Year 7 of the 70th Week began Yom Teruah 2021.
Day 365 of Year 7 of the 70th week Ends on the eve of Yom Teruah 2022.
A Recap of Time
Since all this can be confusing, here's a recap of the information regarding dates in both this chapter and the following chapters.
- Daniel's 7 weeks and Daniel's 62 weeks = 69 weeks
- The Messiah was cut off after 62 weeks, which was in 29AD
- As such, the prophetic clock stopped in 29AD
- The Church Age began at the same time in 29AD
- Note: This age is not counted in the weeks. So 62 weeks + Church Age = 62 weeks.
- On June 6th, 1967, Israel retook Jerusalem, which means:
- The Church Age ended on that day.
- The Messianic Age began on that day.
- The Prophetic Clock began again on that day.
- Day #1 of the 63rd Week began on that day.
- The Messiah's Jubilee (also 7 weeks of years, also Daniel's 7th week) began on that day.
- The Messiah's Jubilee ended on Yom Kippur 2015 (Sept 23, 2015), which means:
- Daniels 62 and 7 weeks finalized on Yom Kippur 2015.
- The 50th year of the jubilee began on Yom Kippur 2015.
- The 70th week began on Yom Kippur 2015
- Shavuot 2018 (May 20, 2018) Jerusalem recognized as Israel's capital
- Shavuot 2021 / May 17, 2021 (1335 days after the Revelation 12 sign on September 23rd, 2017. Likely represents war [Psalm 83 or Ezekiel 38?] Maybe an expanding of territories? Peace deals with Arabs?
- Yom Teruah 2021 (Sept 8, 2021) ends the 6th year of he 70th week before twilight.
- Yom Kippur 2021 (Sept 16, 2021)
- Yom Teruah 2021 begins the 7th year of he 70th week at twilight.
- Yom Teruah 2022 (Sept 27, 2022) begins the final week (the 71st week).
- The final week (the 71st week) concludes on Yom Kippur 2029 (Sept 19, 2029).

The Fall Fests of 2015 & the Great Sign of 2017
The Harbingers in Israel and America
Messianic Rabbi Johnathan Cahn is a person that made some discoveries. The US and Israel seem to have a connection. Specifically, two points are made: The Shemitah are used as a divine tool by God for blessings or Judgements. By using this, we can observe some patterns to the northern kingdom of Israel. Specifically, in the last days of the northern kingdom of Israel, there are nine harbingers that appear in the land. These nine harbingers are: the Breach, the Terrorist, the Fallen Bricks, the Tower, the Gazit Stone, the Sycamore, the Erez Tree, the Utterance, and the Prophecy.
The author does not go into these. Enemies attacked Israel in 732BC. However, the people rejected repenting, as Isaiah described in Isaiah 9:10. The same thing happened when the two World Trade Towers fell, but we then rebuilt them into one larger World Trade Tower. This was the first harbinger, which happened on September 11th, 2001. America's national security was breached in the year of the shemitah. Why attack the towers? Because they represent pride.Isaiah 2:12, 15, 17 God even destroyed the Tower of Babel, after all. The author then says that all nine harbingers have occurred, and thus judgement is ready for America.
So why did these harbingers come? In short, the author explains that they occurred because we're not following the commandment to rest on the Sabbath. He then goes into how literally everyone, Jew and Gentile, disobeys this command as well as the jubilee command. He pulls examples from the Bible, but you should already be aware of this. One interesting fact is that Israel was in captivity with the Assyrians for 70 years, one year for every sabbath they failed to keep.2 Chronicles 36:20-21
America is Spiritually Linked to Israel
At this point, the author asks us why we are punished like Ancient Israel. He points out that Isaiah 9:10 is tied to Israel's northern kingdom and not to Judah. This northern kingdom is also known as Israel, Ephraim, and Joseph. The author then says the that white Europeans are the ten lost tribes of Israel, pointing to Genesis 48:19.For more information, go look up the Brit Am movement at britam.org.
Listen, your race does not matter, Jesus may have came for the Jews, but he said that,
America is Mystery Babylon
Anyways, the author goes on to say that the United States will play a role on the world scene as the "beast from the earth" as recorded in Revelation 13, but that this fact is not guaranteed. America, like Judas, could still turn around and repent. Regardless, the author uses Isaiah 13, 14, 18, 47; Jeremiah 50, 51; Revelation 18 to point out that America is Mystery Babylon, and he says that the Great City is New York City, because if NYC is burned, then everyone across the waters will weep.
The author later goes on to say that on 8/21/17 and 4/8/2024 there will be two solar eclipses crossing over the whole of the United States. If we trace their path over the land, it looks like it will make an 'x' near the middle of the United States, as if God is crossing out the US.
The author notes that this 70th week started with the Pope giving both houses of congress a speech, which was noted positively by many politicians, such as former president Obama. The author then says that Pope Francis is a destroyer of nation-states by way of his Sustainable Agenda for Climate Change, forcing wealthy nations to open their borders to immigrants and refuges, and his socialist policies on redistribution of wealth. The author claims that this will result in an excuse to micromanage every part of our lives for the good of the planet.

Messiah's Jubilee & the September 2021 Connection
Most of the information in this chapter was shifted to chapters 2 and 3 of this summary to help the cohesion of the theory.
Standard Pre-Tribulation Rapture Belief
The standard end times prophecy beliefs go something like this:
- Event #1 - A rapture of the Church happens during a climactic breakdown of law and order, and this starts Daniel's 70th week.
- Event #2 - The Antichrist rises to power, and negotiates a seven-year peace covenant on behalf of Israel, allowing them to rebuild their temple.
- Event #3 - The antichrist implements the mark of the beast in the first half of these seven years.
- Event #4 - The antichrist breaks the covenant with Israel in the midpoint. WWIII effectively starts, which destroys Mystery Babylon and spreading famine and death everywhere.
- Event #5 - Distress among the nations leads to persecutions of Jews and people who refused to take the Mark of the Beast.
- Event #6 - The Antichrist unleashes his wrath on the world during the last three and a half years with natural disasters.
- Event #7 - At the end of the Seven years, Jesus returns to Israel with enough force to displace every mountain, and destroys Israel's enemies.
Next the author talks about the United Nations Security Council in depth. He believes that when President Obama headed a UN Security Council meeting for a few days, that Obama briefly held a title of nobility, which the US Constitution forbids, and thus something-something-something this happened on Yom Teruah 2014, so that's an important date. Honestly, the author spent too much time making this very tenuous point, when he already provided ample and clear evidence for the ultimate point that he wanted to make: Yom Teruah (September) 2021 is the date that starts the 7th year of the 70th week of Daniel.

Lunar Calendar Symmetry & the Author's Theory
The lunar calendar details were placed into chapter 2 of this summary.
The Author's Theory
The author's self-named theory deals with the remaining appointed feasts: Yom Kippur 2021, Shavuot 2026, Yom Kippur 2029.
Essentially, the 7th Shemitah (aka 7th year of the 69th week) [ended Yom Kippur 2015], the 8th Shemitah (aka 7th year of the 70th week) beings Yom Teruah 2021 and ends Yom Teruah 2021. The 9th Shemitah begins Yom Teruah 2028 and ends Yom Teruah 2029. Both of these shemitahs are judgment shemitahs, and the last one is when God rains down wrath on the unbelieving world.
There are two groups of weeks that are important to know. The Daniel Chapter Nine Weeks, 7 sets of 2520 Lunar Days from 6/7/67 to Yom Kippur 2015 (9/23/15) and Daniel Chapter Twelve Weeks, 2 sets of 2,550 Lunisolar Days from Yom Teruah 2014 (9/23/14) to Yom Teruah 2029 (9/19/29). The 8th shemitah separates the two Messianic weeks from Yom Teruah 2021 to Yom Teruah 2022.
The 7th Shemitah is the 49th year of the Messiah's Jubilee (starting when Jerusalem was retaken). It is also the 7th year of the 69th week that started on Yom Teruah 2014 and ended on Yom Kippur 2015. It's a buffer zone from the transition of ending Daniel Chapter Nine 2520 lunar days and the 2550 lunisolar days.
The author sums up the 8th shemitah as the week of man's judgement, "the Deep State strikes back." Naturally, the author also says that the virus pandemic was planned by the deep state as well. This seems like an interesting logical step. If the shemitah is supposed to be a judgement year, as the author has previously stated, then wouldn't the "Deep State" be doing God's Will if they were in fact purposefully harming the world?
Regardless, during this time, the Antichrist will come to the world scene, and the Vatican, UN, and media will give support for them. By the end of the 8th shemitah, the "world government" should be in power and control of the world.
The 9th Shemitah judgement will showcase the Wrath of God against the people that know God is real, but reject him. The Bowls of Wrath of Revelation Chapter 15 and 16 happen here. The author also believes that an Asteroid will hit earth in April 2029, and that this asteroid is Wormwood.
A Recap on these Last Three Shemitahs
- There is a division of precisely six years between the shemitahs
- There are three distinct 360-day periods:
- The 7th Shemitah (Began Sept 23, 2015) was a transition for the Daniel 9 & 12 weeks of 2,520 days and 2,550 days.
- The 6 years preceding the 8th Shemitah are a shadow picture of the events preceding the 9th Shemitah,
- The 8th Shemitah (Begins Sept 16, 2021) represents judgment caused by man.
- The 8th Shemitah is a shadow picture of the 9th Shemitah.
- The 9th Shemitah (Begins Sept 19, 2029) represents judgment caused by God.

Preparing for September 2021 & Beyond
What to Expect in September 2021
Author's Thoughts on the Rapture
"Because of the close connection to the Feast of Yom Kippur in terms of judgment, I believe that the Rapture point beyond Yom Teruah might be plausible until Yom Kippur, but not past that point. If the Groom does not come for His Bride on the Appointed Feast of 2021, then, from my perspective, the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Theory would no longer be a legitimate Theory."The Author
Following September 2021
The author believes that following September 2021, war and conflict will bring a spiritual restoration and revival for the kingdom to come. He also believes that the US Dollar will collapse, saying the the World Bank is preparing for it to happen, and that Russia and China wants to replace the US Dollar's reserve currency status with the Chinese Yuan, and pointing out that both China and Russia has been stockpiling gold. Furthermore, there has been an increased sustained push away from paper currencies due to the virus, all of which may lead to the Mark of the Beast. The author believes that the media will explain the rapture by using aliens. The author believes that the US is Mystery Babylon.
What to Expect in September 2029
"Yahshua will return just after the 9th Judgment Shemitah that will commence just after Yom Teruah 2029. Keep in mind that the 8th Judgment Shemitah is a shadow picture of the 9th. Whereas the believers in Yahshua will escape the first judgment Shemitah, those who come to repentance after the Rapture will need to endure eight terrifying years unless the Creator has other plans."The Author
The author is talking about the ten days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur, in 2021 and 2029. "These ten days are a moed or Appointed Time where Elohim opens the Book of Life and decides if you will remain in that book or if you will be blotted out. These ten days are to be a time of soul searching with a heightened awareness just before Yom Kippur when the book is closed, and Judgment commences."The Author
