What's so special about the number 7? Seven is God's number:
In the Hebrew, seven ([b'v, - Sheh'-bah) is from a root word meaning to be complete or full. This can be clearly seen from the first time a varient of this word is used in the Bible.
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. [Genesis 2:1-3]
God rested on the seventh day because his work of creation was complete, entire, perfect. Thus seven represents this perfect completeness and also it represents rest, as in the rest that is taken from work. It is from this same word that the Sabbath, the day of rest comes. But as well as this spiritual perfection, seven seems also to be used in another way in scripture.
Patterns of sevens run through the scripture more abundantly than any other number. Where patterns of other numbers run through a scripture it is often symbolic of something to do with that number, however patterns of seven about all through scripture to the extent that it could be seen as being a part of God's seal that the writing is indeed scripture. Thus seven might also be known as the number of God's seal. (SOURCE)
Importantly, I believe the Grand Supercycle crash that is now unfolding has everything to do with the opening of the 7th seal from the Bible's Book of Revelation.
On this note, please watch the videos below from Prophecy In The News regarding the 7 year sabbatical cycle (NOTE: There is an updated video on their web site). The pastors contend that the prophetic tribulation period might be starting with Rosh Hashanah and the new Jewish year of 5769, which started after sundown Monday:
A PRIMER ON THE SABBATICAL YEAR
2008-2015 SABBATICAL CYCLE - JEWISH PROPHECIES
[Also on YouTube: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3]
(Note that the authors predicate their emphasis on the current sabbatical cycle for the tribulation period based upon a rare 'tetrad' of solar and lunar eclipses that line up with the major Jewish holidays in the year 2015, when the next sabbatical cycle begins, suggesting this is when the Kingdom Of God ruled by Christ is realized. No tetrads occurred between the 16th and 19th centuries, but in the 20th century they occurred in 1948 and 1967 precisely matching the rebirth of Israel and the recapture of Jerusalem by the Jewish people, respectively.

Are we entering the 70th week of Daniel as they say?
Maybe....I'm fairly certain this is 'The Crash' getting underway. And it was in seeking to discern what 'The Crash' was all about that I had a related prophetic vision, i.e., an outbreak of all-out war in the Middle East that would result in global nuclear war. This war is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies of the 'Apocalypse', which literally means revelation. By revealing the truth of man's wrongdoing so that it can no longer be denied, humanity will learn to heed God's Will such that His Kingdom can be established on earth completing this cycle of world history in the process of Creation. Thus, a millenial 'day of rest', where peace on earth and social harmony prevails, can begin.
