What is the Final Shmitah Connection 2021?
For those of you interested in knowing what my new book, SEPTEMBER 2021 is all about, then continue reading as I lay out a very good foundation of some of the key points that are made on this website and that are reflected in the book. This article is being written in an attempt to make a connection to the final Shmitah & the Connection to 2021 with the final seven year period of time being: Yom Teruah 2014 to Yom Kippur 2021.
How does Daniel Chapter 12 Line up with Bible Prophecy?
The final Shmitah connection 2021 begins with the understanding of the 12th chapter of Daniel and the 1260, 1290 and 1335 days. These are actual three periods of time that are being fulfilled Now in the latter days. These days do not represent some type of allegory, but a specific road map that identifies a very specific period of time. Often times there are double prophetic fulfillments of Bible prophecy that I have discovered while researching for facts. There are some who hold to the belief that these periods are actually years and that these periods of time in years have been fulfilled, which might be true to a certain extent, especially when one realizes the connection of the 1,260 Years to certain events that have happened in the past.
My focus in this article will to be to highlight the final Shmitah connection 2021 with a laser sharp focus on the final 2550 (1260+1290) days from Yom Teruah 2014 to Yom Kippur 2021!
Daniel Chapter 12 for Context!
Because the 12th chapter of the Book of Daniel is so critical in understand the latter days, I have included the entire chapter below highlighting the important points in bold with regard to our time and what will be covered in this article. The period of time from Yom Teruah 2014 to Yom Kippur 2021 will start to make sense and hopefully you will make some of the connections to the 12th chapter as well as to the final Shmitah connection to 2021. The translation of the bible that I use is ISR98, so some of the names may appear different than what you are use to.
1“Now at that time Miḵa’ĕl shall stand up, the great head who is standing over the sons of your people. And there shall be a time of distress, such as never was since there was a nation, until that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book,
2and many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth wake up, some to everlasting life, and some to reproaches, everlasting abhorrence.
3“And those who have insight shall shine like the brightness of the expanse, and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.
4“But you, Dani’ĕl, hide the words, and seal the book until the time of the end. Many shall diligently search and knowledge shall increase.”
5Then I, Dani’ĕl, looked and saw two others standing, one on this bank of the river and the other on that bank.
6And one said to the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long until the end of these wonders?”
7And I heard the man dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, and he held up his right hand and his left hand to the heavens, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it would be for a time, times, and half a time. And when they have ended scattering the power of the set-apart people, then all these shall be completed.
8And I heard, but I did not understand, so I said, “My master, what is the latter end of these matters?”
9And he said, “Go, Dani’ĕl, for the words are hidden and sealed till the time of the end.
10“Many shall be cleansed and made white, and refined. But the wrong shall do wrong – and none of the wrong shall understand, but those who have insight shall understand.
11“And from the time that which is continual is taken away, and the abomination that lays waste is set up, is one thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12“Blessed is he who is waiting earnestly, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
13“But you, go your way till the end. And rest, and arise to your lot at the end of the days.” Daniel 12 (ISR98, Emphasis in bold)
The opening verse points to a period of time identified as a “time of distress, such as never was since there was a nation, until that time.” This is identifying the time of Jacob’s trouble more accurately identified as the time of Israel’s trouble. The focus is on Israel and this is where the tribulation seems to start or initiate from, whereas the whole world will be effected as Jerusalem will become a burdensome stone, “And in that day it shall be that I make Yerushalayim a very heavy stone for all peoples – all lifting it are severely injured. And all the nations of the earth shall be gathered against it.” Zechariah 12:3
More than likely it will be the representative of Russia, who will “chair” the role as “President” of the United Nations Security Council, who will vote along with 15 other powerful nations to allow Palestine to be recognized as a nation this coming September 2015. Last year, as some of you may know, it was a representative from the United States who chaired as “President” of the UNSC, whereas a covenant was confirmed between the same 15 powerful nations on the eve of Yom Teruah. Something to definitely keep an eye on for sure.
Verse two identifies the Bridegroom coming for His Bride, “And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book, and many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth wake up, some to everlasting life, and some to reproaches, everlasting abhorrence.” Since these events have not happened, it is my understanding that these verses identify a period of time we are quickly approaching! Learn how the Ancient Jewish Wedding will be fulfilled through the Messiah.
Verses 7, 11 and 12 address these three periods of time namely the 1260 (a time, times, and half a time), 1290 and 1335 days. The “a time, times, and half a time” is an ancient way of saying 1 year + 2 years + 1/2 year or ((360 +720 + 180) = 1,260 days).
The Book of Daniel & the Connection to the Feast Days!
Did you know that that chapter 12 identifies the Feast Days of YHVH? It does, but just not directly! I will show you what I mean.
When you incorporate the Feast Days of Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur and Shavuot, Bible prophecy opens up and brings clarity to what is written especially with regard to the latter days. View the image below titled, Daniel Chapter 12…
As you can see from the image, 2550 days, the addition of 1260 +1290, results in an amazing fulfillment of bible prophecy. Adding 2550 days from Tishri 1 of Yom Teruah, brings the future date to Tishri 10 of Yom Kippur. In addition, if that were not remarkable enough, adding 1335 days from Yom Teruah, brings the future date to Shavuot. This is what I call a double confirmation or a second witness that point to the Feast Days of YHVH.
The Connection to the Metonic Lunar Moon Cycle!
The graph above is straight forward and easy to understand and comprehend with regard to these days lining up with the feast days. It gets more complicated when one accounts for the metonic lunar moon cycle.
Since the Jewish Calendar is a lunar based calendar system, there is a need to balance the moon cycles with the seasons of the solar year. This is done through what is known as intercalation or the addition of an additional moon cycle known as an Adar II or a 13th month once every two or three years. This cycle of adding a leap month or Adar II comes from the application of using the Metonic lunar moon cycle. According to this cycle, an Adar II is added to the Jewish calendar every 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17 and 19 years of a 19 year cycle. This is based upon the Metonic cycle that I discovered after visiting Gavin Finley’s website where he discuss’ the importance of incorporating intercalation to Daniel’s Prophecy.
To help explain the 2,550 days and how they relate to today, I must show you a graph from Gavin Finley’s website that will bring this into laser focus. Please view his graph titled, The Fall Feasts of Israel...
As you might have noticed, the 2,550 days fit precisely between Tishri 1 to Tishri 10. Other ways of saying 2,550 days might be…
- 86 moon + 10 days
- 7 Biblical Years + 30 days
- (7 x 360-Day Cycles) + 30 days
- 2,520 + 30 days ( One Shmitah is 2,520 days)
- It is not, However, the 70th week + 30 days
- 1260 + 1260 + 30 days
- 1260 + 1290 days
All of these make absolutely perfect sense to me and I hope to you as well or will by the end of this article. With regard to the 70th week + 30 days, the assumption is that the final week known as Daniel’s final 70th week, begins the 2,550 days. I show why this is not the case as I explain my theory at the end of this article.
As can be seen, the 1260 and 1290 days of Daniel’s prophecy is present and fits between Tishri 1 and Tishri 10 precisely. Now, lets discover what period of time this represents.
Daniel Chapter 12: the Years 2014 to 2021!
So, what do we do with this information! How do we fit it in to our time and especially the final Shmitah connection 2021? The answer is the Metonic Lunar Moon Cycle and Torah Calendar.
The image below is from Gavin Finley’s website and shows this period of 2,550 days starting on Yom Teruah of the years 2012 to 2021. He uses the phrase, “Qualifies for the 70th week” which is not the case as previously discussed; however, it does “Qualify for the 2,550 Days.”
This graph is based upon the Metonic Moon Cycles that incorporate an additional Adar II or 13th month every two or three years. You can view more on the Metonic Lunar Cycle on Wikipedia. See the image below…
What you will notice from this image that there are certain start years that either qualify for the 2,550 days or do not qualify for the 2,550 days. The start years that do qualify are 2014, 2017 and 2019. The remaining years highlighted in grey would not qualify for the start of the 2,550 days and thus would not qualify for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy as it relates to the Fall Feast Days. Of course, the assumption is that the Feast days of YHVH will be fulfilled, which is less of an assumption and more of a fact especially when one considers the amazing connections to the eve of major fall feast days.
You will notice, the period of time highlighted in yellow is a period of time from Tishri 1, 2014 to Tishri 10, 2021. As you may recall from the Daniel Chapter 12 image, this is the exact period of time for the qualification of the 2,550 days as it lines up with the Metonic lunar Moon Cycle. This alone does not prove that it lines up with the year 2014 which leads me to ask the question, “what about the year 2017 or 2019?”
The next thing would be to see how this lines up with Torah Calendar. My research points to the three periods of time that would qualify (YT is Yom Teruah and YK is Yom Kippur). They are…
- YT (9/24/2014) +2,550 days = YK (9/17/2021)
- YT (9/20/2017) +2,550 days = YK (9/13/2024)
- YT (9/17/2020) +2,550 days = YK (9/19/2029)
This is a result of using timeanddate.com to find the Gregorian dates and using Torah Calendar to determine the feast days.
As you may have noticed, there seems to be a slight conflict with Torah Calendar and the Metonic lunar moon cycle. The Metonic lunar cycle from YT 2019 to YK 2026 does not line up with Torah Calendar, while YK 2020 to YK 2029 does line up with Torah Calendar, but is not reflected in the Metonic Lunar cycle.
I believe the difference is as a result of how Torah Calendar calculates the moon phases as these calculations might be slightly different from the Metonic lunar cycle. Torah Calendar uses the most advanced lunar and solar data from Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and other reliable sources that have an accuracy of + – 30 minutes in 4,000 years, according to their website. Torah Calendar also accounts for the Spring Equinox lining up on the Feast of Unleavened Bread or after.
In any event, you can clearly see at least two dates line up with both Torah Calendar and the Metonic lunar cycle and as a result act as a type of double confirmation:
- YT (9/24/2014) +2,550 days = YK (9/17/2021)
- YT (9/20/2017) +2,550 days = YK (9/13/2024)
Daniel Chapter 12 and the 1,335 Days!
To recap, If we begin on Yom Teruah of any given year and count out 1,335 days, we will come to Shavuot. When we account for intercalation, we will come to the Feast of Shavuot in some years, while not in other years. Again, the Metonic lunar cycle would play into this. By using timeanddate.com and Torah Calendar, we see how the intercalation of the 13th month will effect the 1,335 days from either falling on Shavuot or falling one month behind this feast day. On the Creator’s Calendar, the 1,335 days will either fall on the 5th/6th of the second month or the 5th/6th of the third month. In order for the 1,335 days to land on the feast day of Shavuot, it must fall within the third month of the spiritual year. I have double checked the years from 2014 to 2019 on Torah Calendar to determine possible future fulfillment’s of this prophecy. See the following:
- YT 9/24/2014 + 1,335 days = Shavuot 5/21/2018 (3rd month)(May 2018?)
- YT 9/14/2015 + 1,335 days = Shavuot 5/11/2019 (3rd month)
- YT 9/1/2016 + 1,335 days = 4/28/2020 (NOT Shavuot) (2nd month)
- YT 9/20/2017 + 1,335 days = Shavuot 5/17/2021 (3rd month)
- YT 9/9/2018 + 1,335 days = 5/6/2022 (NOT Shavuot) (2nd month)
- YT 8/30/2019 + 1,335 days = 4/26/2023 (NOT Shavuot) (2nd month)
So, as you might have noticed the 1,335 day prophecy points exactly from Yom Teruah to Shavuot, while the (1,260 +1,290) day prophecy point exactly from Yom Teruah to Yom Kippur. It is logical to believe that the 2,550 days and 1,335 days tie together through their common bond of Yom Teruah. Those years, as identified, would be only two within the next 6 years. Those two years in common would be:
- The Eve of Yom Teruah 2014 (9/24/2014)
- The Eve of Yom Teruah 2017 (9/20/2017)
Logically, it seems that the chances are rather high that either this past YT 2014 or the future YT 2017 will play into the start of the 2,550 day count down. See the graph below for a better understanding of these two dates.
The Book of Daniel chapter 12 points to the start of the 2,550 days happening either on Yom Teruah 2014 or 2017.
The Start of the Final 2,550 Days: 2014 or 2017?
There are really five major events or reasons why the start of the final 2,550 days began on the eve of Yom Teruah 2014. They are listed as follows:
- The 2017 mid-tribulation sign
- The Shmitah week and the Covenant with the many
- The ending of the 49th year of the Creator’s Jubilee
- The Divine Confirmations
- THE RICHARDSON THEORY
1. The 2017 Mid-Tribulation Sign!
This mid-tribulation sign is more of a reason why the final 2,550 can’t start on Yom Teruah 2017 and that is because that is when the mid-tribulation sign will appear in the heavens. This great sign takes place in the 12th chapter of the Book of Revelation. It seems that the Book of Revelation was written in chronological order. If this is the case, which it seems to be, then it is in chapter 6 where we have the loosening of the seals and a great loss of life with each seal.
Logically, it makes sense that the beginning of the final 2,550 days would take place at least two years before this great sign.
2. The Shmitah week and the Covenant with the Many!
The weeks found in Daniel chapter 9 are Shmitah weeks or 2,520 day periods of time. It is the Shmitah that is intimately tied into the jubilees. See the Creator’s Jubilee image for a visual. When “he made a Covenant with the many” on the eve of Yom Teruah 2014 (September 24, 2014), I knew it would be significant for exactly this reason, that reason being the beginning of the final 2,550 days on man’s rule on this planet. View more on this covenant by clicking on the link above.
3. The Ending of the 49th Year of the Creator’s Jubilee!
As I was saying, the Shmitah and the Jubilee are intimately tied together and can’t be separated. These Shmitah cycles have been revealed from Heaven and they show an exact period of time of 2,520 days. See the Shmitah Release Day image for this revelation made famous by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. For an added confirmation of these Shmitah cycles, view the Shmitah Peace Talks image.
The image below shows the divine connection of the Creator’s Jubilee that began on June 7th, 1967 and will end on the eve of Yom Kippur 2015. The next day is Yom Kippur, and according to scripture, that is when the 50th Year of Jubilee begins. You will notice that there are seven Shmitah cycles of 2,520 days represented with the final 70th week beginning on Yom Kippur 2015 as well. The 70th week is the final 2,520 days that will be cut short one 360-day cycle. This is why I made reference that the start of the 2,550 days is not the beginning of Daniel’s final 2,520 days simply because the start of the 2,550 days began Yom Teruah 2014, while the start of Daniel’s Final week will begin on Yom Kippur 2015. See the Creator’s Jubilee September 2015 article for more information!
4. The Divine Confirmations
One of the most important confirmations is what I have called the Divine Confirmations. See the image titled, the Divine Confirmations below…
This is a double Divine Confirmation of two highly significant start dates. June 7th, 1967 was the exact day when Israel reclaimed Jerusalem and September 24th, 2014 was the day when “he” made a covenant with the many per Daniel 9:27. These two dates point to two other highly significant dates of Yom Kippur 2021 & Tabernacles 2021!
In conclusion, we find two confirmations of two highly significant dates in the year 2021. If we take the two key dates of September 24, 2014 and June 7, 1967 and apply simple math to them, we come out to two amazing connections to the 6th and 7th feasts of Yom Kippur and Tabernacles 2021 as being the final Shmitah connection 2021.
- September 24, 2014 + 2,550 days = the eve of Yom Kippur 2021
- June 7, 1967 + 19,830 days = the eve of Tabernacles 2021
The 6th Feast of Yom Kippur highlights the 7th Feast Feast of Tabernacles.
5. The RICHARDSON THEORY
The Richardson Theory essentially is placing all of the pieces of Bible Prophecy together and basically covers a period of time from Yom Teruah 2014 to Yom Kippur 2021.
The final Shmitah connection 2021 goes deeper than what is presented in this article. For a fuller understanding and what September 2021 signifies, please click on the RICHARDSON THEORY. Visit that link for more information!
