    ......What Did Happen on Elul 29?


    With that background, it is time to tell what interesting things did happen on Elul 29 of this year!

    When we look at the events of Elul 29, having taken off our "financially focused lenses" and our "USA-centric lenses," several important things occurred.

    First, on Elul 29, the leader of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahri, released an audiotape that included an all-points, worldwide bulletin to young Muslim men everywhere to begin carrying out jihadi attacks in the West. Analysts say that al-Zawahri is even more persuasive among jihadis than ISIS, who had just released a video two days earlier on 9/11 called "We Are Back in America."

    Second, the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also released a video taunting America for ever saying it could defeat Iran, and promising our humiliation if we ever tried.

    Third, after a disturbance at the Al Aqsa Mosque on Elul 29, about 500 people visited the Temple Mount on Tishri 1. That situation is ripe for escalation. If these were to become big stories in the coming months—a large increase of Islamic lone-wolf attacks in the West, a whole new level of contemptuousness from Iran now that the nuclear deal is certain and worldwide conflict over Israel's handling of the Temple Mount—then we might just look back at Elul 29 as a key turning point indeed.

    Finally, in a surprising twist, on Elul 29 Iran President Hassan Rouhani, tweeted "Shana Tovah" to the Jews, just like he did once before in 2013. What that means I would rather not even attempt to guess.

    I look forward to respectful non-trolling thoughts on this. :) God Bless.

    The markets were closed on Elul 29 this time, but it's a Jubilee year. The last Jubilee saw Israel expand it's territory in the 6 day war so I'd expect something similar in the middle east especially concerning Iran and Syria.

    I don't know but is it typical for markets to be closed on a Jubilee year?

    No, they'll be open. Elul 29 just happened land on a Sunday this time that's why the markets were closed.

    Abba Father, it is my sincere prayer that our eyes would be continually upon Jesus, and the saints being about the your business Papa God.

    I love the study of prophecy but in my humble opinion it can distract and even deceive God's children.
