"At the end of [every] seven years thou shalt make a release. And this [is] the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth [ought] unto his neighbour shall release [it]; he shall not exact [it] of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release" (Deut. 15.1-2).
The year of release from debt is called a shmittah (shmita) year. The release always takes place on Elul 29, the last day of the civil calendar, one day before Feast of Trumpets. Look at this picture to see the amazing events that took place on Elul 29, Sept. 17, 2001 after the stock market closed for 6 days because of the 911 attack on the Twin Towers. The DJIA dropped 685 points that day (largest point drop ever at the time). A major release or give back. Then 7 years later the 777 point drop in the DJIA again on Elul 29, Sept. 29, 2008 (largest single day drop ever).
7 years hence brings us to Elul 29 again which is the day before Feast of Trumpets Sept. 14, 2015 the day of the first rapture according to readiness for overcomer believers alive at that time and martyred saints from the past 20 centuries (5th Seal). The Tribulation runs for 2,520 days from Sept. 14, 2015 to Tisha B'Av Aug. 7, 2022, the day the 1st and 2nd Temples were destroyed, and the day Jesus steps down on the mount of olives when He returns (Zech. 14.4, Acts 1.22, Rev. 1.7).
The great earthquake has already happened either Haiti 2010 that killed 320,000 souls or Japan 2011 that was the 4th greatest anywhere in human record at 9.5 on the Richter magnitude scale. Combined year over year, nothing on record has occurred like this.
Some are looking for a great earthquake when it has already happened. They are not being watchful so they will not be included in the first rapture Feast of Trumpets Sept. 14, 2015 even if they are born-again.
As Rev. 6.12 continues the rarest of all solar eclipses is Nov. 3, 2013. Then follows the feast Total Lunar Tetrad 2014/15.
There are seven sets of seven from June 7, 1967 or 17,640 days to Sept. 23, 2015 the Day of Atonement.
