A Charisma News post features a brief video of Jonathan Cahn and several other ministers still hyping their Shemitah myths. The post asks, “Could all these voices of judgment be wrong?”
The answer is, “Yes.” In fact, they are all wrong because their exegesis of Scripture is wrong and their theology is wrong.
How can they still be hyping this, you ask. After all, Elul 29, the so-called Shemitah “wipeout day,” came and went and nothing happened. Isn’t it time this false prophecy itself got wiped out?
Unfortunately, these types of false prophecies often carry many built-it plan-Bs and room for many rationalizations. The prognosticators will continue to point to various “signs” and “harbingers” happening all around us, and stretch out the significance of “super Shemitah” or Jubilee for the next year or so to come. Indeed, Hagee’s and Biltz’s “Blood Moon” prophecy is not even over yet—the final blood moon is yet to come on September 27–28.
Meanwhile, the secularized version proffered by Jeff Berwick, the “Dollar Vigilante,” is magnifying every conceivable negative current event across Europe in an effort to prove his “call” was accurate.
Despite the increased mileage these guys get out of their persuasive skills, all of this is uninformed and unscrupulous.

None of this is to say the United States and the west in general may not fall under God’s judgment soon. We very well may be judged for our many and great wickednesses, and it could happen soon—even in September. But if judgment comes, it will have nothing to do with blood moons or the now-abrogated Jewish calendar: it will have everything to do with our defiance of Christ and God’s standards of righteousness.
