Bible-based Market Timing?

08 Jan

The following video is an “infomercial”–a “commercial”.  It’s commercial nature causes me to distrust it.  Even so, it offers an interesting approach to timing markets based on Biblical “cycles”.  Although it’s an “info-mercial” there’s a lot more “info” than “mercial”.  You might learn something from this video.

Again, I don’t necessarily trust this system of timing markets.  Why?

First, because, in regard to End Times, I understand the Bible to declare that no man knows the precise date.  This video isn’t telling us the exact date for End Times to begin or for the Messiah’s return.  Still, I am habitually wary of anyone who claims to have read the Bible to reveal an “exact date” that anything will happen in End Times.

Second, because, as I hear this video for the first time, the timing is based on cycles of various lengths (which is not necessarily unreasonable)–but the choice of the day on which those cycles begin seem to me to be somewhat arbitrary.

Yes, whichever date is being used to start a relatively recent cycle corresponds with some fact of apparent Biblical significance.  But the problem is that you can find something that’s Biblically “significant” on lots of days.  That gives the person making these calculations a lot of leeway in terms of choosing cycle-start days.  That leeway casts some doubt on whether the cycle start-date truly reflects Biblical “prophecy” or human contrivance.

Similarly,the cycle end-dates are potentially suspicious in that no matter what cycle end-date is prophesied (or selected), something “important” happened that date.  For example, as I heard this video, most of the video is directed to using the cycle start- and end-days to determine when US stock markets (and perhaps the gold markets) will begin to go up or down.  Nevertheless, the Biblical start- and/or end-dates of the relevant cycles can relate to events in Israel. That’s not necessarily wrong.

Still, it seems to me that if we’re going to apply cycle-based predictions to US markets, the cycle start- and end-dates might be more convincing if they were all found in the context of the US events rather than those of Israel.

I’m not saying that this use of alleged Bible-based cycles is right or wrong.  I am saying that it’s not yet totally convincing–at least not for me.

But.  The authors claim to have made some persistently remarkable investment predictions by using their system.  If their claims are legitimate, there’s something here that’s worth considering.

More, the authors’ proposed system of several, Bible-based cycles is interesting.  I haven’t heard this one before.  Maybe it’s right, maybe it’s wrong.  Maybe it’s 70% and 30% wrong.  But it’s news (to me), therefore interesting (to me) and might therefore also be worth your consideration.

Incidentally, I’m not associated with this infomercial’s promoters.  I don’t know anything about him/them.  I make no recommendation as to whether you should pay to subscribe to their product or leave it along. I don’t stand to profit or lose based on your decision.  All I’m saying is that this “system” strikes me as “interesting”.  Other than that, caveat emptor.

    Yes, Jonathan Cahn or “Con” – your choice. His book, “The Harbinger”, very good, though.

    Anything for a buck!

    By the way, who is true Israel today? Even Christ refused the title “rabbi”.

    this video is powerful as prediction ,even if not biblical.

    All the more reason to believe strongly in Bible truths, and distrust the so-called progressive sophistication of mere intellectuals.

    The true Israel today depends on the camp of eschatology a person has been schooled in, from denominational books, bible commentaries, and preachers that are in one camp or the other camp. Churches that teach ‘replacement theology’ substitute the church for Israel in the New Testament and some of the Old Testament. The other camp view sees the 1948 regathering of the Jewish people to the ancient homeland, Israel, as Israel on the earth, God’s chosen people back in the land as non believers and Zionists. 1800’s America, with the post Reformation formation of Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, and Seventh Day Adventists, which all sprang from Freemasonry fed replacement theology. Replacement theology seemed certain because of the 1900 year diaspora of the Jewish people. These churches were all in for the church as replacement but not prepared for the regathering of the Jews, although the entire bible, most of the Minor and major prophets clearly outlined the end time scenario of physical Israel back in the land. Spiritual Israel seems to include Old testament believers in Messiah although they did not see Him, and the church, the Body of Christ. Israel in the flesh is Israel, Jesus brethren according to the flesh, the place Christ returns to, the physical place He saves from the Antichrist and the armies of nations destroying it at His return. I can become diligent with scriptural references but it is sometimes easier to go with just plain language.

    Shametah is a tool in the cycle work indicator tool box. Just be careful not to use just one indicator. The Shemitah 7 x 6 is supportive of the Shemitah concept;
    Years of monetary panic:

    1764 + 42 = 1806
    1806 + 42 = 1848
    1848 + 42 = 1890
    1890 + 42 = 1932
    1932 + 42 = 1974
    1974 + 42 = 2016

    The 42 year cycle is derived from the 7 year cycle and is evidenced as supporting that we are once again at a crossroad.

    Biblical timing is one thing, but advice from a man or women enlightened with wisdom from the Most High is better. One is more than likely to find that wisdom here at Adask.
    There are a lot of danger signals in the markets at present—– junk bonds are experiencing drops in —- 3 montH LIBOR has been in a parabolic move up for over 12 months– the canary in the coal mine and early heads up that 10 year and 30 year gov. paper may be in the early stages of significant rate increases. This is a big negative for the markets worldwide. Interest rates have been dropping for over 30 years, this is coming to an end and it wont be pleasant for most.
    The markets have been dropping quite sharply since the first of the year, yet I do not see panic. Strength in Jap Yen is bad for the markets, the Yen is strong. If we were near to a short term bottom there would be more fear, there is not, only complacency.
    We are not anywhere close to a bottom. In technical terms we may only be in wave 1 of an Elliott wave 5 wave trend sequence to the downside, hang on!
    As it says in Matthew 24:22 “the Lord would shorten the days”, this will magnify any market move, as there will seem to be less time to establish a safe position for the assets. The Lord is doing this for the benefit of His remnant, and to the detriment to the serpents. We know WHO they are…
    “He led the children of Israel out with silver and gold and not a one of them stumbled” Psalms 105:37

    One must never rely on just one indicator and/or trust any one persons opinion.
    Just wanted to be a second witness to the Shemitah concept— Deuteronomy 19:15

    elliot 5 waves are up moves; down waves are a/b/c (three legs)….

    Elliott wave principle is comprised of a 5 wave sequence within a complete trend. This applies to uptrends and downtrends. 1,3, and 5 waves are impulse waves in the direction of the trend– wave 2 and 4 are corrective waves within the trend. Within the wave sequence it is my experience there are abc patterns within wave 4 extentions. This may deviate from textbook illustrations, one must interpret and style it according to and/or close to what works from use and experience. I believe we are in the first wave down (1) in the indexes at present.

    Always believed the word quite thought-provoking and strange: IS (Isis), RA (Ra), EL (El)
    Each part meaning “God” or a name of a “God” or goddess, or “Lord”, or supreme being.
    Just seems a bit arrogant and egotistical, even antithesis to our heavenly Father and His true children of faith and obedience.

      Israel is the name given to Jacob during his encounter with God at river Jabbok. Genesis 32:28. The parents of Jacob were Issac and Rebekah, grandparents Abraham and Sarah. Israel was first used collectively in Genesis 34:7.

    Perhaps the change of name better represented Jacob as such: IS (from father’s name “Is sac”)
    Ra (from mother’s name “Re bekah”) EL (as in little Lord or prince of Issac and Rebekah). I like that idea better than a connection to idolatry, ie. Isis and Ra.

      Yes, that is good. I like that much better also.

    in ancient Palestine, and preceding the scattering over the world, God said he would give Israel a new name— The Lord Yahweh shall call his servants by another name– Isaiah 65:15, Hos 2:17. They would bear Isaac’s name– ‘In isaac shall thy name be called” Romans 9:7, Sons of Isaac, Isaac-sons, Saxons.

    Oh my dear Dog-move, the history revisionists want that fact kept under wraps. We are supposed to detest our grand heritage. We are supposed to call ourselves “cauc-asians”. We are supposed to denigrate our own racial heritage and engage in promoting the falsehood of the anti-christ pretenders to the throne of “messiahship” over the entire planet.
