Before reading this post, please read God Parts the Red Sea on Nisan 17. Otherwise, this will not make sense.
God has revealed a worldwide market crash will occur on Nisan 17, but when is that? Nisan is the first month of the Hebrew year, but there are two Hebrew calendars. Sometimes they are off by a few days, other times by a whole month, especially during leap years like 2016. Using the Biblical Hebrew calendar, Nisan 17 starts at sunset on Saturday March 26 and ends at sunset on Sunday March 27. Using the modern Hebrew calendar, Nisan 17 begins at sunset on Sunday April 24 and ends at sunset on Monday April 25. So to know the timing of the crash, we have to know which calendar God is using.
Ancient Israel based their calendar on observations of the moon with each new moon marking the beginning of a new month. Today, a remnant of devoted Jews still rely on this practice to identify their holy days, but most have adopted the modern Hebrew calendar, which is inaccurate by design, moving certain holy days so they don’t occur on certain days of the week, like the Sabbath (Source: Wikipedia).
In 2016, the modern calendar is so far off it has Passover happening one month after Easter, which is impossible since Jesus ate the Passover meal three days prior to His resurrection. Yet, the modern calendar puts Easter on March 27 and Passover beginning at sunset on April 22.
Even though the Biblical calendar more accurately identifies the holy days, the modern calendar is more widely used. As I was researching these dates, almost every site I visited uses the modern calendar. It was much harder to find sites using the Biblical calendar.
To identify the timing of the market crash it really doesn’t matter which calendar is more accurate or more popular because the only thing that matters is which one is God using. The following provides five reasons why I believe God is using the modern calendar.
1 ) God Loves People
We know God cares about accuracy because He created the universe with amazing precision. Yet, He overlooks the inaccuracy of the modern calendar because He also cares about people and far more people use the modern calendar than the Biblical one. So I believe God reveals Himself through events like this in the hopes that people will recognize Him and turn to Him. Hardly anyone would if He followed the Biblical calendar.
He does the same thing with the Gregorian calendar, which is also inaccurate because it identifies the start of each new year on January 1, which is not even close to God’s new year. Yet, for as long as any of us can remember, He has honored our new year celebrations by imparting revelation and vision for the coming year through His prophets.
The Apostle Paul did the same thing, as he wrote, “I have become all things to all men, so that I may by all means save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22) The love of God compelled him to see beyond cultural differences, speaking to them in ways they could understand, so he could show them the way to God.
God does everything He can to warn us and spare us from calamity, even if it means using our flawed calendars. He takes no pleasure in bringing judgment, which is why He gives so many advance warnings. When He relented from bringing destruction upon ancient Nineveh, He told Jonah He was not only concerned about the people, but also the animals (Jonah 4:11). So God uses the modern calendar in the hopes of rescuing more people from destruction.
2 ) Historical Precedents
Historically, major market crashes have coincided with Jewish feast days. Businessman and market investor Aaron Brickman discovered the major crashes of the last hundred years have aligned with the modern Hebrew calendar, but not the Biblical calendar. He shared the following statement:
“In the 1929 crash, there was a discrepancy between the Biblical and modern Hebrew calendars, but the crash dates aligned with the modern calendar, not the Biblical one. In the 1987 crash, both calendars were aligned. In the 2008 crash, the calendars were out of sync again, but again the crash aligned with the modern calendar, not the Biblical one.”
I believe the coming crash will also align with this historical precedent.
3 ) Five Prophetic Revelations
Five prophetic warnings all reveal the timing of the market crash will be based on the modern calendar (April 25) rather than the Biblical calendar (March 27).
First, the dates given to James Jansen and Louie McGeorge coincide on the modern calendar, but not on the Biblical calendar.
Second, Phanuel received two warning dreams about the crash, one on April 25 2014 and the other on January 17 2016, the 25th and 1/17. Again, his dreams reveal the timing of the crash will follow the modern calendar, not the Biblical calendar.
Third, yesterday I saw a graph showing the Dow Jones Index moving up sharply as it completes the final leg of the W-pattern. Then it dropped down sharply afterwards. Then it leveled off and started moving back up, but not as fast as the other movements. It moved up more gradually and formed a rounded top that was not nearly as high as the first top. Then it started sloping gently back down. That was all I saw. The point is it would be impossible for the market to complete this pattern in one week because there just isn’t enough time. I believe it will be fulfilled by April 25, aligned with the modern Hebrew calendar.
Fourth, Michelle Alena Lovejoy posted the following comment on Z3 on March 18 regarding a dream her husband had the night before.
Blessings James and all z3 readers!!! My husband is 73 years old, and I don’t bother trying to tell him all the things/prophetic words and dreams that are coming….because he can’t remember them!!! He told me just know that Holy Spirit woke him up last night (3/17/16) at 1 am and said…..’THE CRASH IS GOING TO START IN GERMANY AND YOU HAVE ONE MONTH.”
The one-month timing from March 17 fits with the modern Hebrew calendar, but not the Biblical calendar.
Fifth, Elizabeth Marie posted the following comment on Z3 on March 18 sharing a dream she had on January 30 2016.
On January 30th of this year, while sleeping I heard a VERY strong voice saying:
‘Three months, three months, three months’
I do receive dreams, visions and words at night from the LORD. However, I have never heard one quite like this. It was an actual strong, male’s voice, instead of the ‘download’ to my spirit that I usually get.
After praying about it for awhile and not receiving anything more, the LORD led me, through Scripture, about the Passover and the barley harvest. Sure enough, the ‘Three months’ comes at Passover, right around April 23rd to April 30th!
Three months from January 30 fits perfectly with Nisan 17 on the modern calendar, April 25.
4 ) Technical Analysis
Technical analysis by Aaron Brickman shows major historical crashes have followed a very similar pattern with 39 to 44 trading days from the final market top to the panic low. If the market is currently moving up and reaching new highs, a crash on March 27 would be unprecedented because it would contradict the pattern of every previous crash. If the market reaches a top next week (March 21-25), this would fit the historical pattern for a crash to begin on April 25. The market would then likely hit a panic low as soon as May 6 or as late as May 20 if it follows historical patterns.
Another amazing finding is the market makes a major turn every 1800 trading days (plus or minus 15 trading days). 1800 trading days equates to a seven-year cycle. For the past year, the markets have continued to follow the 1800-day cycle as it relates to the 2008 bear market, which ended on March 9, 2009. Adding 1800 trading days to that low shows we are due for a major turn in the markets during the last week of April through mid-May 2016. So technical analysis supports the modern Hebrew calendar, not the Biblical calendar.
5 ) Markets Are Closed on March 25-27
The stock market would have to be open to crash. The modern calendar passes this test because the markets will be open on Monday April 25. However, the Hebrew calendar fails this test because Nisan 17 occurs on Sunday March 27, which means the markets will be closed.
Even if we assume the crash happens on Friday March 25 to fit the warning received by Louie McGeorge regarding a crash in Germany on the 25th, which would be Nisan 15 according to the Biblical calendar, that does not work either because the markets are closed that day for Good Friday. It would also be impossible for Germany to crash that day because the German markets are also closed, including the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
No matter how we look at it, scripturally, historically, prophetically, and technically, all indicators point to April 25 as the date God has chosen for Nisan 17. I believe He has chosen to send a message of judgment to the world based on the modern Hebrew calendar because it is the one most people use. Besides, the markets are all closed on the dates revealed by the Biblical calendar.
