The return of Christ – Why is everyone talking about September?
I dont know about you, but I keep seeing September mentioned speculatively as a possible date for the return of Christ.
Lets have a look at some of the speculation and significance around this date The following 3 points of discussion (as intruiging as they are) are largely speaking observations of times and seasons that seem to correlate with notable events.
As we investigate this, lets not forget – “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father”.
Beginning of the 70th Jubilee – September 13th 2015?
The link here points to an article written in the Testimony Magazine and called “The Time Appointed”. It suggests that the 70th Jubilee could begin in September 13th, 2015, explains the methodology and significance behind this conclusion.
This link shows that there is a pattern of seven year financial cycles can be traced back to the financial collapse that led to the Great Depression of the 1930’s. Interestingly, each seven year cycle concurs with a Shemitah year on the Jewish calendar!
For example, at the end of the previous Shemitah cycle in 2008, the subprime mortgage crisis in the US caused major financial markets to lose nearly a third of their value. At the close of the Shemitah cycle before that, the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 completely shut down Wall Street for a week. When the New York Stock Exchange reopened on September 17, 2001, the market fell 684 points in one day. At the end of the first week of trading following September 11, approximately $1.4 trillion in value was lost.
Rabbi Cahn is quick to admit that he is not predicting an economic meltdown during the next Shemitah year beginning September 24, 2014, but he does warn his audience to take note of the correlation he has uncovered.
In Joel, God says there will be “wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire…the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” In Acts, the Apostle Peter repeats that verse from Joel. And the book of Revelation says that during the Great Tribulation, “the moon will become like blood.”
Blood moons appeared in April 2014, on Passover, and then again in October 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot.
The timing is the same for 2015, and wont be seen again for centuries, that is, a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days.
In the past, the rare appearance of four blood moons on these feast days have coincided with major feasts and events for Israel and the Jewish people.
Perhaps they speak of christs return, perhaps they dont! – we dont know, but they are interesting none the less.
Putting those observations aside for a minute, we only need to look to upcoming events in September to see that it could turn out to be a very significant month:
Possible Federal Reserve Interest Rate rise in September 2015
…which is scaring the living daylights out of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and other bankers & traders.

“Talk to almost any banker, investor or hedge-fund manager today and one topic is likely to dominate the conversation: It isn’t Greece, It is the lack of liquidity in the markets. The fear is that a Fed rate increase could unleash such disruptions on a grand scale”

Diplomatic attack against Israel by the United Nations in September 2015
“A diplomatic attack against Israel is expected soon that will surprise even the pessimists in Jerusalem,” a senior Western diplomat told The Jerusalem Post’
Ukranian Reports that Russia is preparing for a full scale invasion in September 2015
This date is at the very centre of Russian training program which has been stepped by 50% for the summer of this year. It has been reported by Ukranians (have to find the lost article) that Russia is using the increased training as a cover for a possible invasion.
The Pope to address the UN in September 2015
The Pope is visiting the US in September and will be adressing the UN general assembly. One of the popes most recent political goals has been the recognition of the state of palestine and this agenda has been driven largely through the United Nations. It is likely that the pope will bring this up in his speech to the UN in Sepember.
You might also recall brother Islip Colleyer noted way back in 1941 that 2015 could be the year of christs return:
Bro. Islip Colleyer on the year 2015 as possible return of christ
Quote from an article he wrote in Janurary 1941 – http://bit.ly/1CWTI5n
“…The date of this event was A.D. 755; and according to this interpretation the end will be 1,260 years later in A.D. 2015. We can almost hear the protests of readers. But does even this idea really involve delay? If the year 2015 brings the final and complete end of the Little Horn and all for which it stands, if that is the final act of subduing the nations as suggested by Revelation 16:19, then surely even the time that remains is not too long for all the work that has to be accomplished”
Jewish Rabbi “The messiah is about to return”
Published July 3rd 2015 – http://bit.ly/1IFTUwm
Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky, a leading authority in mainstream Ultra-Orthodox Judaism, has been giving clear and unequivocal messages recently that the coming of the Messiah is imminent. He is urging Jews to make Aliyah as soon as possible. Aliyah, the Hebrew verb for “going up”, refers to immigrating to Israel, which is seen as higher spiritual action that can help herald in the coming of the Messiah.
This note is not predicting the return of Christ. However, it does show that there is a few events to watch for, events which may be related to the return of Christ. September could come and go, and be as mundane as any other month. But our Lord says:
“Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning”
