    Jonathan Cahn teaches from the Kabbalah (Zohar).  The Kabbalah (Zohar) is Jewish mysticism....not inspired Scriptures!
    You will have to follow the youtube link for the comments.

    First of all, Israel is not the Church and the Church is not Israel.  The Shemitah was part of the Mosaic Law.  Are you under the Mosaic Law, Eric?  The Law was given to Israel, not the Church or the Gentile nations (Psalms 147:19-20)  Are you an Israeli?  The year of release was for Israelis living in Israel during the dispensation of the Mosaic Law, not the Gentile nations or the Church.
    From the Berean Call radio broadcast Search The Scriptures 24/7 (9-26-2014):
    "Well, the Hebrew word Shemitah actually means “release,” and so what happened is just as in the law God set aside the seventh day of the week as the day of rest, He also set aside the seventh year as a year of rest for the land, so there was not to be any planting or harvesting during the seventh year. And in preparation for that, it was actually a year of blessing, because in the sixth year He caused the land to produce three times what it normally would so that it would carry them through the seventh year and then on into the eighth year until the harvest came. So another thing that happened was that at the last day of that seventh year, debtors were to be released from the debts that they owed to their creditors, whoever they had borrowed from was to wipe the slate clean, and so they were released. That’s where the word Shemitah comes from: they were released from their debt. And so that began to be applied to that day, and then applied to the whole year, that seventh year. So when we talk about Shemitah, we’re actually talking about the Sabbath year, one year every seven years when the land would rest and debts would be wiped clean."  (David James )
    So, who did you "release" from work when the "shemita" came?  Did you cancel all debts also?
    Better to stick to the Scriptures rather than Jonathan Cahn.  Jonathan Cahn also uses the Kabbalah (Zohar) for some of his "false" prophecies.
    Here are the 4 Scripture verses (all in Deuteronomy) where the "Shemitah" is found:
    Deuteronomy 15:1 At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. (shemitah)
    Deuteronomy 15:2 And this is the manner of the release: (shemitah)  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. (shemitah)
    Deuteronomy 15:9 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, (shemitah) is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
    Deuteronomy 31:10 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, (shemitah) in the feast of tabernacles,

    Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
    Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
    Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
    Get right or get left (behind).  The Rapture/"catching up"/"harpazo" is imminent.  It can happen at any time.  No prophetic signs need to occur in order for the Church to be "caught up to meet the Lord in the air" (1 Thess. 4:16-17)  We need to be looking for "that blessed hope", not for any Shemitah to happen.  Shemitah is for Israel....rapture is for the Church/the Body of Christ.

    The public school system is corrupt, therefore homeschooling is probably the only option for parents who want their children educated "in the way they should go". (Proverbs 22:6)
    Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

    You might have to know someone on the "inside" of Freemasonry to get any Masonic writings of Albert Pike or Manly P. Hall...
    Here's a website with general information about Albert Pike
    Here's one on Manly P. Hall: The Manly P. Hall Archives

    There is a link to the site Ex-Masons for Jesus on that might answer your questions about Freemasonry and the Order of the Eastern Star.
  7. LindaR added a post in a topic Holman KJV Bible   

    Freemasonry is a cult.  They don't even believe in the Jesus of the Bible.  Their "god" is a universal "god" (G. A. O. T. U. = Great Architect Of The Universe)
  8. LindaR added a post in a topic Holman KJV Bible   

    Yes!  My late husband's sister-in-law is the Grand Secretary of the Order of the Eastern Star of the State of Mississippi (since 2009).  Her late husband was a 33rd degree Mason (Shriner).  The symbols on the five pointed star are Masonic.  The OES stands for Order of the Eastern Star.  The star itself is an occultic symbol for baphomet (the goat of Mendes).  Before putting another cover on the bible, I would check it out inside.  It could be loaded with Masonic notes.

    I agree with Saintnow. 
    It really doesn't matter what our "opinions" are about atheists and atheism.  God's definition of who they are is what matters.  God defines them as "fools" (Psalms 14:1; 53:1).
  10. LindaR added a post in a topic Opinions On Atheists?   

    That response means that you have to believe in God. The word "universe" is made up of two parts...."uni" meaning ONE and "verse" meaning TO SPEAK.  If there is a universe, it came from ONE SPOKEN WORD.  Only an Intelligent Being can speak...that Intelligent Being is none other than God Himself.
  11. LindaR added a post in a topic Opinions On Atheists?   

    Since an atheist "claims" to deny the existence of God and since those who "claim" to be atheists believe in the existence of the some type of "spiritual" being, those persons are not "true" atheists and neither are those persons "false" atheists.  They are non-atheists making false claims about God and the Bible. The existence of God is proven in the Bible and creation (Psalms 19:1).  Even the devils believe in God AND tremble:

    James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

    Professor_Physika, do you believe in a universe?
  12. LindaR added a post in a topic Opinions On Atheists?   

    This is what I believe about atheists:  I don't believe there is such a person as a true atheist.  The reason why is in the God's Word (Romans 1:18-23).

    I didn't expect that you would agree with the article by Dave Hunt.  Just because you disagree with the content does not mean that you are correct or that the content is wrong.  Your critique is simply your own opinion.   You will find out how worthless opinions are when you die and face God, your Creator.  If you believe that this life is all there is, you are in for a great big surprise.  Believe it or not, you are not going to be annihilated.

    Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
    Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
    Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
    Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
    Revelation 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    Biblical Answers to Challenging Questions
    Must I Believe God Exists Before I Seek Him?
    Question: In my daily Bible reading, I came across a verse that really puzzles me: “Without faith it is impossible to please him [God]; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews:11:6). Rather than God revealing Him-self to a seeking heart, it sounds as though one must already believe in God before seeking Him. How can that be the case?
    Response:  Would someone seek God if he didn’t already believe He existed? It would be a waste of time. In fact, everyone, including you, knows that God exists.
    The true story is told of a London street preacher who announced to his audience that every atheist was a fool because the Bible said so. A well-known atheist in the crowd shouted back at him that it was a slanderous insult, which he took personally, and that he would sue the preacher for damages. The preacher responded, “It’s not slander to tell the truth.”
    The atheist countered, “And it’s not truth unless you can prove it! You’ll have to prove in court that I’m a fool, or I’ll take every pound you’ve got!”
    “I don’t have to go to court to prove it,” said the preacher calmly. “You say you’re an atheist?”
    “Yes, and not just a casual one. I’ve spent my life proving God doesn’t exist. It’s a pernicious myth!”
    “Spent your life proving God doesn’t exist, have you?” replied the preacher. “Tell me this: if a man who spends his life fighting against something that doesn’t exist isn’t a fool, who is?”
    Likewise, one would have to be a fool to spend any time at all seeking to know a God without being convinced that He exists. God expects every person, as the first step in knowing Him, to admit the obvious fact that He exists. Furthermore, God expects each person coming to Him to have a proper concept of who He is. He won’t honor prayers to an idol or to some “force” or “higher power.” Each person is accountable on the basis of the evidence to come to a proper understanding of God and not to be seeking some false god. God also requires that those who come to Him truly believe that He is not a God of caprice or trickery but a God who “rewards those who diligently seek Him.”
    What is it that any sincere seeker should already have concluded about the God he wants to know? Reason and evidence dictate the following: To create the universe, God must be all-powerful (omnipotent) and all-knowing (omniscient) and in touch with every part of the universe at once (omnipresent). He would have to be at least as personal a Being as we are in order to create us. He would need to perfectly embody all that we recognize as the highest qualities to which mankind could aspire—love, truth, justice, patience, kindness, compassion, etc.—or there would be no explanation for our admiration of such attributes. Furthermore, He would have to know the future consequences of every action in His universe. Otherwise, He could make some terrible blunders. And of course He must have existed eternally as God. He certainly couldn’t have evolved or developed out of something or someone that was less than God.
    The true God must also be able to create everything out of  nothing  and not just build or manufacture His universe out of materials already available. Not energy, not matter, not gravity or electricity, but  God alone  must be self-existent in order to be the cause of all. Finally, He must be perfectly good and just, or there would be no explanation for the common recognition of right and wrong written in the conscience of all mankind all over this earth. These are the minimum qualifications of the true God, without which we couldn’t trust and worship and love Him.
    Although we can understand the necessity of the above abilities, it is also completely beyond our capacity to comprehend such a Being: a God who has  always  existed and thus is without beginning or end; who not only created everything out of nothing but in order not to lose control of His creation must know where every subatomic particle in every atom ever was or ever will be; who must also know what every person who ever lived or ever will live has ever thought or ever will think or say or do, etc. Obviously, such a God is beyond our ability to fully comprehend.
    At the same time that God is beyond our comprehension, however, we have seen that both reason and evidence demand such a God as the only explanation for our own existence and that of the universe around us. To deny this God, though He is incomprehensible, would fly in the face of reason and common sense. It is both impossible and unreasonable for there to have been a time when nothing existed and to have everything, including God, somehow arise out of that void of nothingness. It is totally unreasonable to suggest that life and intelligence sprang unaided from dead, empty space and thereafter evolved by chance.
    Having come to these conclusions about God on the basis of the evidence all around him and in his own conscience, the seeker is now in a position to cry out to this true God to reveal Himself. The precise steps and circumstances and inner convictions through which God will reveal Himself vary with each individual. It is through His Word, however, that the fullest and clearest revelation of God comes. And in this Word, God has revealed Himself in Jesus Christ, who declared, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John:14:9). Jesus also said, “No man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John:14:6). Whoever wants to know God must get to know Jesus. He is revealed in God’s Word, and He reveals Himself to those who open their hearts to Him. As He said, “Behold, I stand at the door [of every human heart] and knock; if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation:3:20).

    Why do atheists try so hard to prove the non-existence of God if they believe God doesn't exist?  Kind of a fruitless endeavor, isn't it?
    Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
    Romans 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
    Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
    Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
    Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
    Romans 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    These verses in Romans 1:18-23 prove that there is no such a person as a true atheist.  God calls those who deny the existence of God, fools.
    Psalms 14:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
    Psalms 53:1 To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
