Dow Closes Below 13000 Mark

Bookmark and Share
The DJIA fell one percent today closing below the psychologically important 13000 mark:

If the recent high was the completion of the Primary Wave 2 rebound from the March 2009 low under the tenets of the Elliott Wave Principle, then Primary Wave 3 is underway....what I've been warning could be the "Apocalypse Wave".

As explained in past blogs, breaking below the psychologically important 13K mark in the DJIA may be a prelude to negative historical events.

Notably, shots were fired from Syria into Turkey today that could mean Syria is about to go ballistic in response to Turkish, and in association NATO, military intervention.

This could result in a chemical SCUD missile attack on Israel and subsequent regional and then global war as I foresaw in February 1991.

Also, one might keep an eye on China and Korea since North Korea might soon provoke a conflict just as political instability is purportedly occurring in Beijing.

Again, these sorts of geopolitical developments toward an East-West conflict are consistent with a swing into mass depression as described by my Global Bipolar Hypothesis.

Of course, the most likely possibility is that the stock market will levitate back above Dow 13000 based upon the American motto, 'In Mammon We Trust'. Let's falsely hope so!

The Truth About Jesus Christ's "Second Coming"

Bookmark and Share
My life to-date has been a lesson in futility, and I don't see an end to the pattern. The best possibility is that I'm insane and delusional. So be it. I'm at my wit's end in trying to tell this world 'the truth'.

The truth is I sincerely believe I'm the reincarnation of Jesus of Nazareth, but so what? What value do I bring to the world this time around? A bunch of fear-mongering, apocalyptic rantings? How's that going to save the world?

I feel like a zero not a hero, and I'm hardly even a good Christian as far as that's concerned. Honestly, I've been a tempermental, often depressed, self-destructive alcoholic raging at my Creator for most of my life, and it's seemingly gotten me no where. I've been mostly jobless for the past four years, never found time for a wife and family, been ostracized by family and friends, am effectively homeless, been shut out of virtually every forum I've joined, own little of 'value' and will soon go bankrupt. As my buddy Rob says, maybe God did choose me, but He made a bad choice and would be much better off selecting someone else. I'm just no good at this world savior bit, so, please God, find someone else!

The historical reality is that a personality cult developed around the man I was 2000 years ago that has morphed into a myth filled with magical thinking and persuasive lore much the same as the Santa Claus fable. And if anyone is going to fall short of expectations regarding Christ's return to this world, that'd be me.

Consider that there really was a Saint Nicholas:

Saint Nicholas (Greek: Ἅγιος Νικόλαος, Hagios ["Saint", literally "Holy", Latin: Sanctus] Nicolaos ["victory of the people"]) (270 – 6 December 343), also called Nikolaos of Myra, was a historic 4th-century saint and Greek Bishop of Myra (Demre, part of modern-day Turkey) in Lycia....He had a reputation for secret gift-giving, such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, and thus became the model for Santa Claus, whose modern name comes from the Dutch Sinterklaas, itself from a series of elisions and corruptions of the transliteration of "Saint Nikolaos". [Wiki]

Imagine what Saint Nick would think if he returned to the world today and found his "followers", in all seriousness, expecting him to live at the North Pole with toy-making elves, and fly in a sleigh drawn by eight tiny reindeer, led by one with a red shiny nose, to deliver presents to all the "good kids" on Christmas Eve?

The major difference between the Santa fable and the myths that comprise much of modern Christian doctrine is at least kids stop 'make believing' the fable they were taught by 10-years-old-or-so because the preponderance of historical evidence proves inconsistent with their unrealistic worldview.

[Do bear in mind that I deem this universe and human HIStory as a form of subjective fiction (of my story?). IMHO, ultimately all that's eternal and "real" is the meaning of God's love around which our story is wrapped. Believe it or not!]

The truth is I'm a man not a myth; a deeply flawed creature, not some fantastic, all-powerful demigod. (After all, Who do you think Jesus was praying to 2000 years ago? As for "immaculate conception" and God being Christ's biological father, this is a fabrication put in place to attract pagans to 'Christianity' in ancient times.) If it's a man-god you want, then there's tyrants out there ready to fulfill your misled slave-wishes:

As an American, I personally prefer people think for themselves and engage in responsible self-governance. What's more, as a realist, I can say I won't be showing up on clouds with great arrogance any time soon for the sake of fable adherents. Such a haughty, ostentatious presentation is not God's humble style. It's man's style.

As it stands, I'm having a hard enough time taking care of myself, never mind saving the world. So what's the use of keeping at this anymore? Especially given that I'm getting no help whatsoever in saving humankind from itself. This fallacy must end, and I need to get on with my own life, what's left of it at least.

Those interested in the Christian myth rather than Christ the man will likely be relieved by my crisis of 'personal faith'....that is, until the Antichrist makes his move to steal God's throne.

I just hope I'm truly deluded, because, if not, I just don't see how there's any hope at all. The Author seems to have written me into Mission Impossible as the lead character.

Happy Easter?!

BTW, "resurrection" does occur for human beings, but Jesus Christ didn't have a monopoly on life after death. Resurrection is reincarnation after one dies and goes to "heaven" IMHO. (Which happens, I believe, for even the likes of Christopher Hitchens.)

I think it's no coincidence that the "Talpiot Tomb" of Jesus and family was recently found:

I believe the ossuary for "Jesus son of Joseph" likely contains the bones of my body from 2000 years ago. (Although the Knights Templars might have discovered the ossuary of Jesus in Jerusalem, took the bones and buried them in France as examined from 19:45 in this BBC documentary.)

What's more relevant for true beliefs is that near-death experiences and past-life "memories" are real phenomenon worthy of intense investigation by science and religion alike.

However, the 'heaven or hell' model presented in the context of "organized Christianity" is mostly fanciful poppycock relative to evident reality used as a control mechanism....and that's why modern church "authorities" insist on blind faith and condemn Christ followers under their control looking up from their Bibles at the actual universe the Creator is authoring each and every day (in which we all are co-authors, by definition, in authoring our own life stories while here). [Also see how "scriptural" references to reincarnation were either banned or misconstrued by the church long ago.]

What's amazing is that reincarnation, in the form of the "Second Coming", is the centerpiece of establishing Christ's resurrection and nullifying belief in "death". Furthermore, this serves to establish God's sovereign AUTHORity in writing human HIStory. (At least we all better hope so.)

Yet, here I am typing away apparently to no avail as usual, but maybe that's somehow still best at this juncture.

Oh well, like with Santa Claus, the 'myth' ultimately serves God's loving purpose. How exactly so given a coming Apocalypse remains to be seen, but why not add one more far-fetched angle to this unbelievable story unfolding around us?

Denial of Service Attack Targets Epoch Times

Bookmark and Share
BLOGGER'S NOTE: This may be historically unprecedented. If this story is correct, then Chinese authorities are engaging in cyber warfare against the U.S. to effectively censor an American-based news web site run by Chinese dissidents. It's one thing if China wants to censor its netizens at home, but it is a completely different matter when Beijing governing authorities want to apply their censorship policies in the U.S. where freedom of speech and press are prized features of American sovereignty.

Denial of Service Attack Targets Epoch Times - Elements in Chinese Communist regime suspected

By Matthew Robertson

Technology » Cyber Security

The Epoch Times was hit with a series of cyber attacks beginning on March 29, with an unsuccessful distributed denial of service attack first targeting, before follow-up sorties on connected servers on the morning of April 1. The English website,, was also targeted in the second round of attacks, suffering what appeared to be a denial of service attack.

The first attack on the evening of March 29 targeted the front end of, the Chinese-language website, but was soon repelled, according to Jan Jekielek, website chief editor of

Then on the morning of April 1, from approximately 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. EDT, attackers went after’s Domain Name System, or DNS, server. DNS is a way of translating a website, as written in English like “,” into an Internet protocol address, like “” The attackers used what is called a “DNS query flood” to disrupt the server hosting that system, which would have caused users attempting to visit to find the page unable to load.

The attacking IP addresses, numbering over 10, were added to a blacklist, stopping the attack. The IP addresses used may have been compromised computer systems, or they may have been spoofed by the attackers, according to Jekielek.

A concurrent attack on April 1 was aimed at, the English-language website, which resides on a different server. “Basically our server was saturated,” Jekielek said. That took place between 8:40 a.m. and 10 a.m. EDT. “It was consistent with what a DOS attack looks like. Your ports are flooded,” he said.

The attack was such that huge numbers of queries are made to multiple ports on the server, which prevents the server from functioning properly. “They’re taking up the whole pipe, but they’re not reading. The server is being hit repeatedly for information from a whole ton of the same computers,” Jekielek said. “Our pipe was maxed out.” The server did not crash during the attack.

The Epoch Times email, content management, voice, and text chat servers were also targeted.

Jekielek said that the attacks were still being analyzed.

Traffic to from mainland China has increased dramatically in recent months. “Right after Wang Lijun escaped on Feb 6, unique view counts on The Epoch Times increased by 3.4 times,” said Changlei Xiong, a member of the technical staff.

After March 15, when the removal of former Chongqing Party chief Bo Xilai was announced, Xiong said that the unique view counts on again tripled from the February increase, making the traffic to the website far outstrip that to other overseas Chinese media outlets, according to statistics compiled by Alexa, an Internet traffic measurement company.

From the technical information that is able to be gathered on the attacks, it is not possible to tell where they ultimately originated from, or whether they were the work of a state or non-state actor.

The attack on the Epoch Times website occurs within the context of a power struggle in Beijing on which The Epoch Times has reported extensively. Analysts say that one side, the faction headed by Party chief Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao, wants at least some information about human rights abuses to flow more freely, while the faction headed by former regime leader Jiang Zemin wants to keep information restricted.

Beginning around March 21, searches on the Chinese Internet for sensitive terms that had previously been blocked were possible. Analysts said that searches for terms such as “June 4,” referring to the Tiananmen Square Massacre, or “live harvest,” referring to the atrocity of forced, live organ harvesting, put the Jiang Zemin faction at a disadvantage. Jiang is closely tied to the Tiananmen Square massacre and his faction, in particular Bo Xilai and domestic security czar Zhou Yongkang, are believed to be heavily implicated in forced, live organ harvesting. The Epoch Times has long reported on Zhou’s connection to human rights violations in China.

Analysts believe a crackdown on the use of popular microblogging platforms in China on March 31 was inspired by Zhou Yongkang, who was thought to be fighting back against Hu and Wen.

According to a Wikileaks cable from May 18, 2009, Zhou Yongkang was involved in the oversight of Chinese hacking against Google. Google cited the persistent hacking campaign, by actors thought to be associated with the Chinese Communist Party, as one of the reasons it would wind back its operations in China.

The recent attack on The Epoch Times servers was clearly coordinated and required a certain degree of technical expertise and computer and human resources, Jekielek said. The attackers were also determined to cause a disruption in access to the site, as they mounted one attack after the first failed, he said, also pointing out that there is no obvious economic incentive for rogue actors to perform such an attack.

“Who else,” asked Jekielek rhetorically, “but the Chinese Communist Party, would have an interest in mounting an attack of this sort? And who in the Chinese Communist Party is more interested in silencing the Epoch Times’ reporting on the situation in China than Zhou Yongkang?”

Jonathan Cahn: The Harbinger

Bookmark and Share

9/22/14 UPDATE: Jonathan Cahn, The Coming Shemitah Year & God's Judgment

Must see documentaries and interviews of Jonathan Cahn regarding parallels between the last days of ancient Israel and current events for America centered around the prophecy of Isaiah 9:10:

“The bricks have fallen down,
but we will rebuild with dressed stone;
the fig trees have been felled,
but we will replace them with cedars.”

One of Cahn's most revealing points is that the "foundation" of the American Republic symbolically cracked on 9/11:

"....the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained; and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people." - George Washington, First Inaugural Address, New York City, April 30, 1789

Washington's inaugural address was made at Federal Hall after which America's governing representatives worshiped at nearby St. Paul's Chapel. These buildings are near ground zero in lower Manhattan, and on 9/11 the foundation of Federal Hall, where the American republic was 'founded', literally cracked.

There's some other points that the author seems to have overlooked.

Note how former Senator John Edwards is credited with making the "utterance" that seals America's judgment.

Cahn fails to note that Edwards shares the name of Jonathan Edwards, arguably the founding father of American Christianity:

Wiki: Jonathan Edwards (October 5, 1703 – March 22, 1758) was a Christian preacher and theologian. Edwards "is widely acknowledged to be America's most important and original philosophical theologian," and one of America's greatest theologians.

"Men must be governed by God or they will be ruled by tyrants." - William Penn

“Right is right, even if everyone is against it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it.” - William Penn

RELATED BLOG: God's Judgment nears...


Here's something really interesting.

In the segments about "The Mystery Of The Shemitah", Cahn points out how the two largest stock market crashes (in terms of Dow points) in 2001 and 2008 occurred on the same day on the Hebrew calendar: Elul 29, which marked the end of the last two "Sabbatical Years" (which occur every seven years). Given my own research findings regarding autumn panics based upon the Hebrew calendar, this really struck a chord.

Indeed, let's start with a simple probability analysis.

The nearly 700 point drop in the DJIA (just over 7%) on 9/17/2001 and 777.7 point drop in the DJIA on 9/29/2008 (just below 7%) were two of the three largest Dow point drops in U.S. history:

These drops occurred on the last day of the Sabbatical Years that occurred between 2000 and 2001 and between 2007 and 2008. This last day of the Sabbatical Year is when debts are to be forgiven per Jewish tradition:
The sabbath year, in Hebrew shmita (Hebrew: שמיטה‎, literally "release"), also called the Sabbatical Year, is the seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah for the Land of Israel, and still observed in contemporary Judaism.

During Shmita, the land is left to lie fallow and all agricultural activity (including plowing, planting, pruning and harvesting) is forbidden by Torah law. Other cultivation techniques (such as watering, fertilizing, weeding, spraying, trimming and mowing) may be performed as a preventative measure only, not to improve the growth of trees or plants. Additionally, any fruits which grow of their own accord are deemed hefker (ownerless) and may be picked by anyone. A variety of laws also apply to the sale, consumption and disposal of Shmita produce. A second aspect of Shmita concerns debts and loans. When the Shmita year ends, personal debts which are due during that year are considered nullified and forgiven. The Book of Leviticus promises bountiful harvests to those who observe the shmita and makes observance a test of religious faith.
Thus, in the last 15 years, there's only been two days when the Sabbatical Year ended, i.e., 9/17/2001 and 9/29/2008, and on these days two of the three largest point declines in the DJIA in U.S. history occurred. What are the odds of that?

Given 250 trading days per year, seven years entails 3500 possible days in 14 years. As for the last day of the Sabbatical Year, this occurs once every seven years. Since there were two of three days of significance, the odds of Elul 29, 5761 coinciding with one of the three worst point loss days is 1 in 1166. This would be the odds for the second hit as well, i.e., Elul 29, 5769, occurring on one of the three possible days. Thus, the odds for a coincidence of the last day in the Sabbatical Year in 2001 and 2008 both occurring on one of the three largest point declines in stock market history is the multiple of the two probabilities, i.e., one chance in 1361889. (It's actually more significant than this combinatorially since the three largest point declines could be measured against all U.S. stock trading days, but this analysis gives one a good idea of how unlikely such a "coincidence" is.)

So what does this "mean"?

The Sabbatical Year ends on Elul 29, the last day on the Hebrew calendar before the Rosh Hashanah and the Jewish new year. Over the last three decades, Sabbatical Years ended on the following days:

September 23rd, 1987 = Elul 29, 5747
September 5th, 1994 = Elul 29, 5754
September 17, 2001 = Elul 29, 5761
September 29, 2008 = Elul 29, 5769

All years were marked by major reversals in the stock market with acute declines in the autumn period:





On a long-term historical chart, a 7-year "Sabbatical Cycle" appears:

[One might also note the 1973 Yom Kippur Arab surprise attack on Israel soon after the Sabbatical Cycle Year ended that time around.]

What is the nature of this cycle?

While my thesis highlights the manic-depressive character of these historical cycles, what Jonathan Cahn is helping to reveal is the cycles are also about sin and redemption, which is a key feature of the Judeo-Christian saga spelled out in the Bible.

The bottom line is this IMO. 'Forgiveness of debts' can be achieved one way or another. If those who claim to be doing "god's work" are serving Mammon contrary to God's will for mankind, then this will ultimately be corrected.
History as His Story

Covenant theology presents the Bible’s own framework for salvation, because like the Bible it unfolds the person and work of Jesus Christ. When Paul wrote, “For all the promises of God find their Yes in him” (2 Cor. 1:20), he was pointing to God’s covenant promises. What has God promised as His gift of grace? The answer is found in His covenants, which offer life, preservation, a land of promise, a glorious people, a ministering priest, a righteous king, and an atoning lamb. These promises are all Yes and Amen only as we trust in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, the Christ of the covenants. The Bible history taught by covenant theology is truly His story, so that we might find the fullness of God’s grace in Jesus Christ alone.

Obama vows "we remember, we rebuild" at World Trade Center

NEW YORK | Thu Jun 14, 2012 7:46pm EDT

(Reuters) - President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on Thursday toured the soaring skyscraper being built to replace the twin towers destroyed on September 11, 2001, in a poignant visit to mark a new chapter of recovery from the traumatic attack.

Inscribing one of the steel beams that will be part of the building's framework, Obama wrote: "We remember, we rebuild, we come back stronger!" followed by his signature.
