“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising” (Isaiah 60:1-3).
No, I’m not getting religious on you (photo by Pixabay). I’m showing you a truth. Great light always arises during times of great darkness. You have nothing to fear when you’re on the right side of things so keep your peace (if you’re on the right side of things).
I know. Don’t go hatin’ on me. I haven’t written for awhile, but there’s a reason. I needed you to go back and re-read everything, study, find what's right for you, financially speaking. I gave you all the information you needed to make wise decisions, and I wanted you to do exactly that.
The stock markets around the world seem to be imploding. From Greece to China to the US, there’s quite a shaking going on. Is it over? Now remember. I predicted the Royals were going to win the World Series last year. They didn’t. (I may have been a year premature, but I digress.) That said, I’m telling you what I think may happen based upon both research and prayer.
All kinds of financial people laughed at us when my family said we were getting out of the stock market and investing in whole life insurance. We got out right before the DOW dropped from its high of 18,300 to its low of roughly 15,300. It bounced back to about 16,600 then dropped today to around 16,000. Will it go lower?
We’re in a Jewish Shemitah year. You know that. A Shemitah year is like a Sabbath day (the 7th day of the week), but it’s the 7th year. It’s a year of shaking; rising and falling. Elul 29 (Sunday, September 13), is the final day of the Shemitah year. Everything climaxes on Elul 29. The following day is Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year).
The top 5 US stock market crashes happened on or around Elul 29. The 3rd largest single day crash happened on Elul 29, 2001 (a Shemitah year). The largest single day crash occurred on Elul 29, 2008 (a Shemitah year). Interestingly, the opening bell didn’t ring that day.
On September 13, 2015 (Elul 29), there will be a partial solar eclipse. On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, the Fed will meet to discuss raising the interest rates. Not only do I believe they will do so, but I believe they will make that decision known days in advance. That, in my estimation, will be the shot heard around the world.
To top it off, we will witness the 4th and final Super Blood Moon on September 28, 2015 (the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles).
Some people are really negative about what’s going on. I believe it’s the mercy of God. Plain and simple. You cannot print money out of thin air, pump it into the markets and not create a huge bubble that will inevitably burst. This shaking will bring things back to normalcy.
Life is shining bright in the midst of dense darkness. If you’ve studied, prayed, you’ll be fine. If not, start now.
