Why is 2015 CE important?
If Jonathan Cahn’s 2001-2008-2015 Shemitah theory (seven year rest) is correct and let’s assume Mark Biltz is correct that 2016-2017 will bring a Jubilee Year (forty-nine year rest) and a huge event. Then why is 2015 relevant? Why wouldn’t Yahushua return 2,000 years from his birth in 3 BCE, or 2,000 years from his resurrection in 30 CE? Could there be a Pattern?The historical Hebraic connections:
Babylonian Jews in 200-500 CE wrote: R. Alexandri said: R. Joshua b. Levi pointed out a contradiction. it is written, in its time [will the Messiah come], whilst it is also written, I [the Lord] will hasten it!33 — if they are worthy, I will hasten it: if not, [he will come] at the due time. R. Alexandri said: R. Joshua opposed two verses: it is written, And behold, one like the son of man came with the clouds of heaven34 whilst [elsewhere] it is written, [behold, thy king cometh unto thee … ] lowly, and riding upon an ass!35 — if they are meritorious, [he will come] with the clouds of heaven;36 if not, lowly and riding upon an ass. King Shapur [I] said to Samuel, 'Ye maintain that the Messiah will come upon an ass: I will rather send him a white horse of mine.'37 He replied, 'Have you a hundred-hued steed?'38 (Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Sanhedrin, Folio 98a)The Jews wanted a Messiah from the seed of David to defeat Rome. We know that same Messiah as the “Suffering Servant,” more like Joseph. He is both. What do these three men share in common?
The Bible emphasizes an interesting detail about Joseph and David: It’s possible they both entered into a time of “Tribulation” at age 17. Let’s prove it. (Watch for the seven year good years and seven bad years implication too.)And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in the land of Canaan. These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father's wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him. Genesis 37:1-4 (KJV)
At what age did Joseph rule second only to Pharaoh [the father]? Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt: And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; …And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt. Genesis 41:29, 46 (KJV)If we can deduce that David was anointed at age fifteen, and Saul exiled him at age seventeen; we know David ruled in Hebron at age thirty, then, David reigned forty years overall. In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah. II Samuel 2:4-5 (KJV)
Citing “The Bethlehem Star” by F A Larson, if one interprets that Jesus was born in 3 BCE and died in 30 CE, then he was 17 in 15 CE. Is that when his father died? Frankly, we don’t know. I’m proposing that his time of tribulation began when he turned 17 and if you add two thousand years to 15 CE you have 2015 CE, according to Hosea 6:1-2, for when Israel is resurrected. Then add in Jonathan Cahn’s and Mark Biltz’ research and you have a plausible end time’s scenario.

Fast forward: On August 18, 2012 a young man named Chris was asked by God to drop by my church to warn the pastors of impending doom for the USA. He stated, “Snow and a broom will occur after Sukkot (October 10) 2012, but before the end of October” as God’s judgment on the USA. He warned that the Third Seal of Revelation opened around Av 9 (summer) 2012. His prophecy was interpreted by another man months later, referring to I Kings 12, where Jeroboam divided the nation into Northern and Southern Tribes, and he created a False Sukkot Festival that would fall exactly one month later than the Holy Sukkot Festival On godless Halloween, October 31, 2012, Hurricane Sandy landed. Seven days later, a divided nation would re-elect a flawed leader, and on the eighth day, the second storm hit the East Coast.Judgment will begin in the USA, and then spread to the whole world. Watch for the tribulation to begin in late 2015. It could happen, and now it has meaning.
Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and for our salvation.Come, let us return to Adonai; for he has torn, and he will heal us; he has struck, and he will bind our wounds. After two days [two thousand years], he will revive us; on the third day, he will raise us up; and we will live in his presence. Hosea 6:1-2 (CJB)
