Three Historical Patterns Point to Passover 2016 As Major Turning Point


The Jewish feast of Passover is known as a time of major turning points in history. Three historical patterns are now indicating another major turning point is coming during Passover 2016.

King Solomon discovered there is an appointed time, a set time for everything and for every event under heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Nothing just happens randomly. Everything happens at a set time following patterns, seasons of time, which are as predictable as sunrise and sunset.

Applying this insight to the global marketplace goes beyond the limits of our understanding, but history reveals predictable patterns govern the markets just like everything else. Seemingly random actions throughout the world are actually following God’s calendar with amazing accuracy, always arriving at major turning points precisely on Jewish holy days. Major market crashes have often occurred near Passover in the spring or the Feast of Tabernacles in the fall. As pointed out in my previous post, the third day of Passover, Nisan 17, has marked major turning points throughout history.

Analyzing these historical patterns can help predict what is coming. Long-term and short-term cycles are now converging during Passover 2016, indicating we are about to see another major turning point. This post shows how a 224-year cycle, 7-year cycle, and the recent triple-top reversal pattern are all pointing to big changes coming around Passover 2016. These patterns were shared by businessman and market investor Aaron Brickman. His knowledge of historical patterns helped him to successfully trade the market crashes in 2001 and 2008.

End of 224-Year Cycle:

An amazing 224-year cycle connects the coming events in 2016 to the first financial crisis in United States history, which occurred during Passover in 1792 (Source: Duke University). This crash marked a major turning point because our financial system was birthed by it. In the aftermath of the crash, 24 stockbrokers met on May 17 1792 outside on Wall Street under a Buttonwood tree to sign an agreement, called the Buttonwood Agreement, which became known as the New York Stock and Exchange Board, which was later renamed to the New York Stock Exchange (Source: Wikipedia).

The pattern of major crashes occurring during Jewish holy days has continued ever since, but 1792 was the last one to occur during Passover. This amazing pattern reveals the magnitude of what is beginning this year could be greater than every crash since 1792. Every market crash since 1792 has occurred during the Feast of Tabernacles, including the crashes of 1929, 1987, 2001, and 2008. So a crash during Passover 2016 would be the first since 1792, which presents an interesting picture of 1792 and 2016 as the front and back covers of a book marking the beginning and ending of our financial system. God appears to have reserved the more significant turning points for Passover with the less significant turning points occurring during the fall Feast of Tabernacles.

This 224-year cycle does not mean we should expect to see our financial system come to an end during Passover 2016. It just means it could be a very significant long-term turning point, the beginning of a series of crashes leading to the end of the dollar and our entire financial system.

The 224-year period from Passover 1792 to Passover 2016 fits perfectly with the 224-year cycles identified by cycle analyst Martin Armstrong.

“I have written about the 224-year cycle. These turning points have marked major changes in political trends. Sometimes society survives mostly intact because we blink such as the replacement of monarchy in Britain or the overthrow of the king in Rome giving birth to the Republic in 509 BC and the birth of Democracy in Athens the following year in a sweeping contagion of political change.

If we add 72 years to the Mississippi and South Sea Bubbles of 1720, we arrive at 1792 (1720 + 72), which was also the first Panic in the United States real estate market. Now add 224 years to that and we come to a Event Horizon in 2016. Now take gold which appears headed like a magnet moving into two 8.6 year cycles back-to-back from the 1999 low (17.2 years), which also brings us to 2016. Add 26 years to the Japan Bubble Top 1989.95 and we also arrive at 2016. Add 31.4 years to 1985, which was the birth of the G5 (Plaza Accord) organized attempt to manipulate the world currency markets and we also arrive at 2016.” (Source: Armstrong Economics)

So according to Martin Armstrong, 1792 and 2016 mark significant turning points, which fits with being the only two market crashes occurring on Passover. Specifically, the third day of Passover, Nisan 17, is a day that represents new beginnings all throughout the Bible, as documented in my previous post. In 2016, Passover begins this year at sunset on April 22 and ends at sunset on Saturday April 30, so a crash beginning on April 25 is not only Passover, but also Nisan 17. (Source:

End of 7-Year Cycle:

Passover 2016 also marks the end of a seven-year cycle, which started on the Jewish holy day of Purim 2009. On that day, March 9 2009, the markets finally reached the bottom after the 2008 financial crisis. Purim started at sunset on the same day, just a few hours after the markets closed. The original Purim occurred during Passover and also marked a significant turning point when Queen Esther went before the king to plead for her people on Nisan 17 (Esther 2:12, 3:3-8, 5:1). The tables were turned so instead of the Jewish people being destroyed, their lives were spared and their enemies were destroyed.

Even though the original Purim occurred during Passover, the celebration of Passover in 2009 was not until four weeks later on April 8 due to discrepancies between the Hebrew calendar and the Gregorian calendar, which occur often. For example, in 2016 we celebrated Easter on March 27, but we won’t be celebrating Passover until nearly a month later starting at sunset on April 22, which is out of order because Jesus ate the Passover meal with His disciples before He was crucified and raised from the dead.

For the past seven years, the markets have enjoyed a time of grace and an illusion of prosperity, but that period ends at Passover 2016. If this seven-year pattern repeats, this could be the start of a new seven-year season of judgment.

God has a long history of orchestrating events into seven-year increments, including the seven years of plenty followed by the seven years of famine in ancient Egypt (Genesis 41:14-37) and the message given to the prophet Daniel regarding the seventy sevens, which were 70 seven-year increments (Daniel 9:24-27). So the seven-year increment from Passover 2009 to Passover 2016 is consistent with God’s pattern.

Another amazing pattern reveals exactly seven years, seven months, and seven days between the event that ignited the 2008 collapse, which was the bankruptcy filing of Lehman Brothers on September 15 2008, to the start of Passover on Friday April 22 2016. Only God could orchestrate global markets with such precision to cause these major turning points to align precisely with His holy days. I believe He does this to show the world He is real and involved in everything that happens here.

God aligns these events to reveal Himself to the world, which is the same pattern He has followed for thousands of years, performing great signs and wonders so the world would know He alone is God.

The Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the sons of Israel from their midst. (Exodus 7:5)

23 For the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed, just as the Lord your God had done to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed;
24 that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, so that you may fear the Lord your God forever.” (Joshua 4:23-24)

W-Pattern Reveals Major Cycle Turning Points

The triple-top reversal pattern, which started forming a giant W-shape in July 2015, reveals three symmetrical patterns all pointing to a major turning point near Passover 2016. These patterns appear in the Dow Jones Index, the S&P, and the Nasdaq.

In the Dow, the market made major turns on May 19 2015 and November 3 2015, both marking highs. These turning points were separated by 118 trading days. If this pattern repeats, the next major turning point would occur on Friday April 22 2016, as shown in the chart below. Click image for closer view.

In the S&P, the pattern is very similar to the Dow with only one-day difference with major turns on May 20 2015 and November 3 2015, which were separated by 117 trading days. If this pattern repeats, the next major turning point would occur on Thursday April 21 2016, as shown in the chart below. Click image for closer view.


The Nasdaq reached major turning points on July 20 2015 and December 2 2015, both highs, separated by 96 trading days. If this pattern repeats, the next major turning point would occur on Wednesday April 20 2016, as shown in the chart below. Click image for closer view.


Putting these three patterns together indicates the next major turning point would occur approximately between April 20-22 2016. This conclusion is validated by the amazing symmetry demonstrated in the W-pattern during the past ten months, as shown in the chart below. Click image for closer view.


However, technical analysts are not expecting this pattern to continue beyond Passover because the final leg has completed and a new pattern is expected to begin, which fits the prophetic revelation of a shift beginning at Passover.


Like the first Passover and many that followed afterwards, I believe Passover 2016 will be remembered as a major turning point, not just for the global economy, but for our lives. The three historical patterns documented in this post confirm it is just ahead.

Everything is not going to change overnight, but a new pattern is expected to begin, likely resembling previous market crashes which have taken months to unfold. Another post is coming soon to show what we can expect to see in the months ahead based on historical patterns of previous market crashes, which have been amazingly consistent.

Note: Thanks to Z3 reader Patrick for sharing the finding about seven years, seven months, and seven days from the Lehman bankruptcy to Passover 2016.

“April 20-22”. That was a *major* turning point in the charts–precisely!

Hi Guys, Sorry, I was oblique with that, but it’s complicated. You asked, so you’ll need to do a little work to see the answer. Get out an /SI (silver futures) chart for 30 days 2 hour interval. The dream comes in three parts. I’m the pitcher. The ball is clearly white. In my dreams, “white” is baseball, and when I see a white baseball I’m confident I’m dealing with silver (pattern from over the years). There is a sequence of three batters. The first pitch is tight and inside, not hit. Go to March 7, when silver is at 15.70. 15.70 is the pitcher’s mound. The pitch is the pattern going lower to 15.25 (March 9), and the throw back to the pitcher is back to 15.70 (March 11). The second batter takes the pitch and hits the ball to me in the air slightly over my head. It lands and I run over and tag the batter out rounding first on the way to second. The base running is an indicator of the length of the silver run, which is the same as the hit that goes over my head. So, the new pitch brings us from 15.70 back down to 15.50 (March 15), but there’s a hit. The hit causes silver to go from 15.70 up 16.15 on March 18. So, a move that goes around first gets us to 16.15. He is tagged out, so we come back down to 15.70 again (March 23-April 8,there was an additional short dip, this stuff is not perfect). So, I know rounding first is 15.25 to 16.15, with the pitch being 15.25 to 15.70. That leaves the base running equal to 15.70 to 16.15, or around 45 cents. If I add two more bases to this, I need to… Read more »

I think there’s going to be an Umpires’ conference on the pitcher’s mound and rule that the player rounding third base was safe. Hopefully the runner won’t trip on the way to home plate, but it’s too early to tell.

But Silver is looking strong in the Asian market tonight, hitting a high of 17.235.

But it’s a long game, and with a hugely high number of commercial shorts, volatility is the only guarantee. If the usual occurs (like the last 5 years of the silver bear market) silver gets whacked by next FED meeting next week. But, a short squeeze like the many that occurred during the bull market is also a possibility and would be a great marker for the trend change from bull to bear.

Just charts. Nothing prophetic.

Had a dream last night of ice skating very fast with an empty metal shopping basket. Ice skating has been developed over the years as successfully trading short silver (silver blade on skates navigating a water surface). I have entered one layer of short silver positions today. Just reporting something I have confidence in. J

I had a dream about silver running around the bases. It passes third and is tagged out on the third base line. I think the triple is nearly complete. My math is 17.2. When that happens, or near, the runner will be tagged out, which means it gives up all the gains. I speculate this happens with the equity drop. I’ve seen silver going back to the floor support, so this could be the start. We also see a significant fall in oil. It appears like all risk assets are impacted negatively. Discern strategies as the Lord leads. It’s always possible I’m in error, but this is my best understanding. J

Dear Brother James, I thank God for connecting me to this website. My deepest appreciation to all your effort’s in helping the people. God bless you Prophet Sir for your true humility( desire to see other people prosper), following God’s will( I really liked when you said “I don’t follow prophet’s but i follow the leading of the Holy Spirit”) and faithfulness(even though you don’t have money to manage the website you stepped out in faith) I am very late to this prophetic portal. It’s been only like 2 months. In the first month i was going through the articles not related to Finance as led by the Holy Spirit. Then the Holy Spirit led me to read all the articles listed under section’s Finance and Forex. I wondered why because i am not much into stuff related to Finance and investment anytime before. In fact i never bought any stocks till now and i have zero knowledge about trading. Then few weeks back i got a dream. I never had the dream like this before. Below is the dream and my way of interpretation. I am not an expert in interpreting dream’s but i tried interpreting to a certain extent: Dream: I was going home in a bus. I realized i have only one baggage. Time has come to get down at my bus stop. When i got down from the bus, i realized all of a sudden that i have many baggage multiplied instead of one. I just wondered how come i have so many baggages. Then all the people in the bus started getting down to help me carry the baggages to a pedestrain sidewalk paving the way for the bus to go forward freely. I am pondering how to carry all the baggages to my home… Read more »

A Silver Sign…
Silver Closed at $17.01 a $0.71 change in price.
Line up those numbers it creates the same sequence frontwards and backwards.
This was also one of the best days in Silver in a long time…. What is the Lord telling us?!?!

Didn’t someone post on a warning about Monsanto and IBM? Monsanto is being investigated as of last month and CNBC headline of IBM down 6% today.

It came from Ali Winters I believe… I could be wrong though. I vaguely remember this prophecy.

In post : God Reveals Timing of Market Top it was stated…….
“The market is going to close at a new high. Then it will open the next trading day at another new high.”

On 4/18/2016 DOW closed at 18004 On 4/19/2016 the DOW opened at 18012

A comment about number 11. I’ve often dreamed of the number eleven or wake up at 11:11, or find eleven cents on the ground. It turns out that Rick Joyner said it is one of the most asked question, about all those elevens! Here’s what Rick Joyner had to say;

Rick Joyner:
Isaiah 11:11: God Promises to Restore Israel to Their Land a Second Time
In that day the Lord will reach out His hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of His people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean. Isaiah 11:11

Since we are studying how to know God’s voice and the prophetic gifts that He has given to His Church, I want to begin by sharing what may be one of the most prolific messages God’s people have been receiving. The question I may be asked more than any other is what 11-11 means. Whether seeing it repeatedly on their clocks or in other ways, many people have been receiving this for years. New Year’s Day was 1/1/11 or 1-1-11. This usually speaks of a second chance, which is the message of Isaiah 11:11 because it is here that God promises to restore Israel to their land a second time.

Interesting article just came out claiming current rally is because of “fear of missing out”
and not because of any real data.
