For the past three years, I have been telling anyone who listens to me to liquidate investments in the USA and to invest in real estate in Israel. Those who heeded my words made a lot of money, for the closer we get to Moshiach, the more Israeli real estate skyrockets.
The American economic bubble is about to burst. Today, the USA has a national debt of $18.5 trillion, and it is expected to become nearly $21.5 trillion buy the end of 2015. Things don't look so good for the land of baseball and apple pie. The USA can't even pay the interest on their debt, much less the principal.
Several of my good friends in the USA argue with me. They cite the oil prices, which have been cut in half in recent months. They cite the dollar, which has strengthened against other currencies. They cite Wall Street indexes, which are at an all-time high.
My response is dump your investments immediately, before the bubble bursts, especially the money you have invested in the stock market. Why?
This coming September 13, 2015, marks the end of the Shmitta, or Sabbatical Year. It is a time of abundance in the Land of Israel, especially for those who observed the laws of Shmitta, but a traditional time of economic catastrophe in the USA. Modern-day Kabbalists consider the USA as today's Rome; the Gemara tells us that when Jerusalem is up, Rome is down and vice versa.
An established pattern according to Rabbinical Law - what's known in Hebrew as a chazaka - is three consecutive times. The fact that the American economy has nose-dived at the termination of the Shemitta year is more than an established pattern. Let's see what happened at the termination of previous Shemitta years, the end of the seven-year cycle in the Hebrew calendar:
2001: Stock market collapse, 9/11 attack - Sept. 11
1987: Black Monday, stock market crash, October 19
We can go back even further and mention the 1980 Silver panic and stock market crash, the 1973 oil embargo when oil prices quadrupled and more, and the 1966 stock market collapse. Enough said?
The only thing that is better than investing in the Land of Emuna is to bring your family and to come here. Thank goodness, I don't have money invested in Wall Street (I don't even own a car for that matter, but nothing can rob me of my spiritual assets), but if I did, I'd be liquidating as quickly as possible. Don't say that you weren't warned. Meanwhile, you have my blessing to find a beautiful condo for you and your family here in our holy homeland of Israel.
