I am presenting critical information that I am hoping will be helpful to the “people of the 1844”. Many have been led into the error that we are at the conclusion of what in Hebrew is called the “shemitah” year. For those who are not aware of its meaning, shemitah means “release”. To be clear, the year of release refers to the time when those serving in the households of the Israelites were released from their work contracts.
But when these release years begin and when they end is the question we must ask when we seek to calculate these times. I can tell you with certainty that the bible does not declare the shemitah year through the sighting of "Blood Moons", catastrophic financial collapses or other geopolitical events. What I can say with certainty is that the first shemitah that can be calculated took place when Israel fought 6 years against the Canaanites who occupied both sides of the Jordan river. This took place in the year 1398 BC, “So Joshua took the entire land, just as the LORD had directed Moses, and he gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their tribal divisions. Then the land had rest from war”. (Joshua 11:23).
The timing of the first shemitah year also corresponds to the 85th year of Caleb’s life "Now then, just as the LORD promised, he has kept me alive forty-five years since the time he said this to Moses, while Israel moved about in the desert. So here I am today, eighty-five years old…Then the land had rest from war” (Joshua 14:15).
To help you determine what year this conquest had taken place I have gone through 25 years of astronomical data. With the aid of the writings of Moses, it tells us very clearly the actual position of the Moon which corresponds to the very day of the week each of these events (identified on top) occurred on. From this data, there can be no question that the through the repetition of the seven year cycles from the time Israel entered Canaan, that the shemitah year begin this year during the time of the fall festivals. They conclude the following year. I will present more detailed information later.
