I wanted to share with everyone an email I got from Bro. Dr. William Schnoebelen. Understand I’m posting it in here because I couldn’t find a link to it at his site, and thus I think it’s just been shared by him, thru email, to those who subscribe to newsletters, etc, from him.
I think what he shares is so important, that all should read, weigh, and pray. Here it is:
The Shmittah and September 23 – Hype and Truth
By William Schnoebelen ©2015
As we are fast approaching the supposedly apocalyptic date of 9/23/15, I feel the RUACH (Holy Spirit) is leading me to amplify some concerns that we have previously shared about this month.
Up front, let me say that I respect Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic rabbi, for his efforts to call America and the Western world to repentance. They are calls that we – ourselves – have echoed repeatedly over the past few years. Anyone who tries to get American Believers to take their faith, their prayer life and their lifestyles more seriously is doing a good work.
That being said, there are some problems with the conclusions he shares in his books and messages (and some others also teach). First of all, the Bible is pretty clear that the Shmittah (a seven year sabbath of the land) applies only when you are in Israel. While there are a LOT of things America could be judged for (abortion, immorality, occultism, etc.), failing to keep the Shmittah is not among them.
Additionally, Cahn fails to take into account that there are a LOT of problems with the rabbinical calendar upon which he relies. For one thing, there is the minor detail that due to Papal and rabbinical flummery there are around 240 years missing from our current Gregorian calendar (named after the POPE that developed it). The rabbis say this is 5776. Actually, we are in or around the year 6016! That is a rather LARGE margin of error.
Beyond that problem, his lynchpin date of September 23 is not even the real Day of Atonement. For reasons too complex to fully explore here, it is about 5 days off. Yom Kippur is actually on 9/28 this year in the Gregorian calendar. This would be true of all the other supposed Shmittah years he cites.
The other concern is his attempt to tie the stock market dips and dives and other catastrophic events to his Shmittah hypothesis. While it is true that we had 9/11 and subsequent – understandable – stock market upsets in 2001 and the major bank crashes of 2008 (7 years apart). A bit of research reveals that there were other serious stock market dives that do not fit into this seven-year pattern.
While it is undeniable that some weird, worrisome events are fast coming upon us – the papal visit to the US and the UN, the CERN Large Hadron Collider being fired up, a possible currency crisis – these all may have nothing to do with the Shmittah or the work of Yahushua. We have already exhorted our readers to pray and intercede to protect themselves, their families and our nation from these things on several occasions.
We have said repeatedly to pray AGAINST these things and other evil workings of darkness and also to pray FOR protection, repentance and revival for our families, our churches and our nation.
While it is possible that judgment is coming to America soon, this may not be what people think. These 7-year cycles may have been set off by an entirely different source – a source from hell. Let me explain. Most informed folks understand that the American (and world) economic and stock exchanges are driven by unscrupulous bankers, traders and Illuminati plutocrats. They can pretty much crash the economy whenever they would like – usually for their own enrichment or for applied spiritual terrorism against the average middle class citizen with his 401-Ks.
Please understand this: to the Brotherhood and the Illuminati types, there is NO MORE IMPORTANT DATE than 1966. It is to them what 30 AD is to Believers – as the probably year Messiah died and the rose from the dead. Why is this for devil worshippers? This is the date of the dawn of the Age of Satan. It is when the Church of Satan (their most prominent front organization) was started. It is when the sexual revolution began in the US and also the year that their supposed “anti-christ” was born on June 6.
When I was a satanic priest, I was told that this would be Anno I in a new satanic epoch. Indeed, Satanists to this mark their calendars as such and such a year A.S. (Anno Satanas – year of Satan). Seven is not just important to heaven, it is also important to the infernal kingdom as well. Why? Because Venus, the seventh planet in the occult systems is associated most closely with Lucifer. It is the Morning Star.
Because of this, the Brotherhood set up their own counterfeit version of a seven-year cycle. Remember, old splitfoot is the ultimate counterfeiter. Though it is more subtle, you guessed it – the patterns of 2008, 2001, 1994 and back from there to 1966 fit exactly. Let me just say that we do not know who is manipulating these cycles, but it is probably NOT coming from heaven.
If something bizarre happens in the next week, it will be more likely because the Brotherhood caused it than because of the Shmittah. However, the reality is the same. America has been breaking commandments and violating the Laws of Heaven for decades and judgment is coming unless we repent and pray for a mighty move of Yahuwah in the land.
Let me say, as I have said in video teachings years ago, there is NO POWER greater than the power of prayer. The Brotherhood planned to bring down the USA on 9/11 2001 – totally. I was told this back in the seventies when I was a Satanist. However, praying Americans turned the tide! Though there was a great tragedy on 9/11, it did not grow into the vast evil cancer that the Illuminati wanted. Instead, there has been a slow creep of evil since then.
The problem with trends like Jonathan Cahn’s teachings is that – what if nothing happens in the next couple of weeks? Does all the fear-based religious enthusiasm it engendered vanish? Will people lose heart? I pray this is not the case! Judgment is coming to America – UNLESS we pray and repent.
The enemy’s plans have been repeatedly derailed both in our personal lives and in the USA and the world at large – because prayer MATTERS! But it is a Sword that must be unsheathed and wielded to be effective! The need for prayer at this time is indisputable – our nation must repent. Prayer is not the LEAST we can do – it is the MOST we can do! Join us in prayer as we intercede, pray and fast for our ministry, family, nation and friends!
