Why Jonathan Cahn and His Revelations Must be Ignored

Jonathan CahnWhy Jonathan Cahn, His Mysteries, Keys and Revelations Must be Ignored

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has been bothering me with his “The Harbinger” and now “The Mystery of the Shemitah” ‘revelations‘. Who is he exactly?  Is he a born again Christian or is far worse than just your plain run of the mill false teacher?

He calls himself a Rabbi yet the bible says:

Matthew 23:8  “8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.”

He has been labelled a modern day prophet as he brings a prophetic message with The Harbinger where he blatantly implies that America is treading the same path for judgment as ancient Israel and connects Isaiah 9:10 to America.  The Harbinger was published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House which used to be known as Strang Communications run by Steve Strang who is part of the New Apostolic Reformation.

Israel and a New World…

The main problem with The Harbinger is that Jonathan Cahn equates America to be a replacement of Israel, a New Israel.  He says in his book:

The Prophet: “But there was one other-a civilization also conceived and dedicated to the will of God from its conception . . . America. In fact, those who laid its foundations . . .”

Noriel Kaplan: “The Founding Fathers.”

The Prophet: “No, long before the Founding Fathers. Those who laid America’s foundations saw it as the new Israel, an Israel of the New World. And as it was with ancient Israel, they saw it as in covenant with God.

This is unbiblical.  Jonathan Cahn is claiming that the Pilgrims (America’s founders who were Puritans – Calvinists) constituted America to be in a covenant relationship with God like Israel is in a covenant with God.  This is of course a lie, but they believed it never the less.  He claims that America replaces Israel as the new Israel for a New World…Order.   Israel is the only nation in a covenant relationship with God that was established through Abraham.

Here he says it again on Glen Becks show.  Glen Beck is a Mormon.  Why would a christian like Jonathan Cahn appear on a Mormon’s show?

2 Corinthians 6:14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

Jonathan Cahn On Glenn Beck’s TV show (A Mormon)

Another country who also believes they are the New Israel is Britain, with the British Royal Family believing that they are descendants of King David.  This is of course a lie. But they believe it never the less. This is called British Israelism (also called Anglo-Israelism).

Freemasons, other occultists and unbelievers can’t stand the fact that Israel is God’s chosen nation and will do anything to replace Israel, literally and spiritually.

The King Solomon connection

Jonathan Cahn says in The Harbinger:

The Key to Solomons KeyKaplan: “Some link between this city and the ancient vow,” I said. “Somehow Isaiah 9:10  has to be connected to Washington DC.” (p.61)

 George Washington Freemason

George Washington – Freemason

The Prophet: “Solomon was the king of Israel. Washington was the first president of the United States. There was something in the linking of ancient Israel and America, as with all the other mysteries.”(p.109)

King Solomon was appointed by God Himself to be king.  George Washington was elected via vote to be President.  There is a big difference between the two. George Washington was also a Freemason. When George Washington spoke of God, he was referring to Lucifer, not the God of the bible.  Freemasons are besotted with claiming Israel for themselves. The Pilgrims who proclaimed a false covenant with God were most likely Freemasons as well hence they could come up with such nonsense as to claim America to be the New Israel.

Freemasons also worship King Solomon who they believed to be the greatest magus (sorcerer) of all time. Is that why Jonathan Cahn connects King Solomon to George Washington because it’s a satanic connection?

“The purpose of Masonry’s veneration of Solomon is not to advance an alternate view of history, but to present, however subtly, the archetype of the future human being — men and women who truly possess Solomon’s Key — the power to master our own demons and redirect their destructive energy to build the Temple of our own evolving soul.” Lon Milo DuQuette, The Key to King Solomons Keys – Is this the lost symbol of Masonry, Second Edition

So who is Jonathan Cahn then and what does he believe?

Well if you go to his website it says:

Jonathan Cahn“Jonathan Cahn is President of Hope of the World ministries, Senior Pastor and Messianic Rabbi of the the Jerusalem Center/ Beth Israel in Wayne, New Jersey. He is also the author of the best selling book ‘The Harbinger‘. His teachings are broadcast daily over hundreds of radio stations throughout the United States and the world and on television.  He ministers, as did the first Jewish messengers of the Gospel, sharing the message of Messiah to Jew and Gentile, Israel, and the nations.  He has ministered before mass gatherings in India, Nigeria, Cuba, Mizoram, Honduras, Haiti, & throughout the world.  His teachings are widely known for revealing the deep mysteries of God’s word and for the restoring of the new covenant message to its original biblically Jewish richness and power.”  [Emphasis added] http://www.bethisraelworshipcenter.org/aboutjonathan.htm

That is very interesting.  So Jonathan Cahn knows the deep mysteries of God’s Word that Christians don’t know? And only Jonathan Cahn can reveal these mysteries to us?  Jonathan Cahn’s plan is also to restore the message that Jesus Christ preaches to it’s original Jewish richness and power.  So until Jonathan Cahn came along all born again believers for the last 2000+ years that have been reading the Scriptures were reading a bible that had no value and no authority what-so-ever.  Isn’t that nice, that Jonathan Cahn came to save the day.

What does he mean by all ‘richness and power’?  Does he mean that we need to infuse the Bible with Kaballah mysticism in order to understand it properly?

Here is another version of his biography that was on his website but the link has now been removed:

“Jonathan Cahn is President of Hope of the World ministries….Descended of the line of Aaron, he has been asked to sound the Jubilee trumpet and minister among the nations, a prophetic ministry of and to the Jew and the Gentile in the last days. His teachings include the revealing of ancient mysteries, the depth and wonders of God’s Word, and the restoration of the Gospel message in its original Biblically Jewish context, richness, and power.”

Who asked him to sound the Jubilee trumpet? And what does that mean exactly?  Here he states that his ministry is a prophetic ministry.  As Christians we know that there is no such thing as a prophetic ministry.  People will only begin to prophesy again in the last days (during the Tribulation):

Acts 2:17-18 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:” 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:”  (Joel 2:28)

There is a movement called the  ‘Hebrew Roots Movement’ where they believe that you cannot understand the bible unless you go back to your Hebrew ways (become like the Jews) and read extra biblical sources such as the Midrash,  Zohar and the Talmud etc., to gain a higher enlightenment of the Scriptures.

The Berean Call says:

“The late Jewish scholar and researcher of first century life in Israel, David Flusser, said rightly; “Jesus was a Jew in every way” ( Jewish Sources in Early Christianity , Adama Books, New York, 1987, p.7). There is absolutely no denying that Jesus was born a Jew and lived an observant Jewish life. He did this to fulfill completely every demand of the law, He did it for us (Romans:8:1-4), and He continues to do it in us if we are true believers.

So if we want to be like Jesus, does that mean that we must become observant Jews, as some allege? Is that what being like Jesus really means? Should Gentile believers try to be Messianic Jews? Can they? Should Gentiles don a yarmulke, worship in a synagogue, blow a shofar, wear a prayer shawl, call Jesus Yeshua or Yeshu, keep the Old Testament feasts and dietary laws, and give their pastors the title of Rabbi, even though Matthew:23:8 says otherwise? Are Jewish ceremonies and practices efficacious?

Do we need to restore first century or later Jewish practices to really be good Christians? The Pharisees practiced all the ceremonies, but theirs is a cautionary tale since Jesus told them that they did these things in vain (Matthew:15:7-9, See also Matthew 23).

So, is Jewishness next to godliness? One very modern movement would answer the question with a loud-“yes, more or less!” This growing movement is called the Hebrew Roots Movement (HRM). Unfortunately, it lacks a shared, coherent, consistent theology, an internal mechanism of doctrinal control, and it is filled with mavericks who seem to be making it up as they go along in terms of attachment to Jewish accoutrements.”  Continue to read this article:  Bewitching Believers Through the Hebrew Roots Movement

Did the Zohar greatly shaped Jonathan Cahn’s writings?

10 Sephirot – Zohar – Kaballah

10 Sephirot – Zohar – Kaballah

I had no idea we needed to be taught NEW revelations from Gnostics books such as the Zohar (part of the Kabbalah).  In this video below we see Jonathan Cahn preaching new revelations about the Bible from an extra-biblical source the Zohar.

The Zohar (Hebrew: זֹהַר, lit. “Splendor” or “Radiance”) is the foundational work in the literature of Jewish mystical thought known as Kabbalah.[1] It is a group of books including commentary on the mystical aspects of the Torah (the five books of Moses) and scriptural interpretations as well as material on mysticism, mythical cosmogony, and mystical psychology. The Zohar contains discussions of the nature of God, the origin and structure of the universe, the nature of souls, redemption, the relationship of Ego to Darkness and “true self” to “The Light of God”. Its scriptural exegesis can be considered an esoteric form of the Rabbinic literature known as Midrash, which elaborates on the Torah.  — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zohar

Watch Jonathan Cahn: Zohar – Golgotha (1)

Jonathan Cahn’s response regarding his quoting the Zohar (Q&A from here):

Question:  It is stated that Jonathan Cahn “says that Zohar, an extra biblical, mystical source from which the occult and mystical Kabbalah is derived, greatly influenced his writing.”

Answer:  “Unfortunately this kind of statements represents some of the extreme and bizarre opposition to The Harbinger – It is an extreme false accusation.  No. I have never in my life said that the Zohar has greatly influenced my writing – nor has it ever.  What this accusation is taken from and twisted out of recognition from – Is that I have in some special teachings shared quotes found in the rabbinic writings which unwittingly bear witness of the truth of the Gospel – things that most Jewish people have no idea of – such as Isaiah 53 being about the Messiah, or God being Three in One, Messiah dying for our sins [DTW Note: Isaiah 53 in our Bible clearly describes the suffering of Jesus Christ.  Why does Cahn need to appeal to occult, mystic Jewish documents like the Zohar/Kabbalah  to get Jewish people to listen? Isn’t reading the Bible itself sufficient for Cahn?], or a connection made between the mercy of God and the word “Golgotha.”  These things can be used to share the Gospel.  This has been a standard method of apologetics and evangelism for ages.  Rabbinical writings, mystical or otherwise, have been quoted for ages, in Bible commentaries, apologetics, works such as The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, etc. To take this and then present it as if I or any Christian pastor or scholar is a secret follower of such things because they used a quote to bear witness of the Gospel is, as, one minister friend of mine would say – shameful at best. It should not have even appeared in print.

The apostle Paul actually quoted from a pagan hymn to Zeus in order to share the truth of the Gospel at Mars Hill.  [DTW Note: This argument has used by many heretics to justify their quoting Catholics, Buddhists, etc.] If we were to then to accuse him of being into Zeus worship, or that pagan writings were behind the epistles, or accuse of him of being secretly pagan – I would think we would need to repent.  It’s called bearing false witness.”

Sorry, for me the logic does not follow. If Cahn is the born again Christian that he claims, he should condemn the ungodly, occult Zohar/Kaballah. He should not quote it, except in condemnation of its passages.

Let’s look at it another way – would a born again, biblically sound Christian:

… quote from a Catholic document to evangelize Catholics because it seemed to contain some Christian thoughts?
… quote from a Mormon document to evangelize Mormons because it seemed to contain some Christian thoughts?
… quote from a Jehovah’s Witnesses document to evangelize Jehovah’s Witnesses because it seemed to contain some Christian thoughts?
… quote from a New Age document to evangelize New Agers because it seemed to contain some Christian thoughts?
… quote from a Wiccan document to evangelize Wiccans because it seemed to contain some Christian thoughts?
… quote from a Satanic document to evangelize Satanists because it seemed to contain some Christian thoughts?

The answer is an emphatic NO, a born again Christians does not use and does not need extra biblical sources to preach the gospel.

Is Jonathan Cahn possibly a Freemason?

Who do we as Christian know that delve into Gnostic teachings such as the Kabbalah etc?  Freemasons of course.  Is Jonathan Cahn a Freemason?  A picture is worth a thousand words:

Jonathan Cahn - Freemason

Do you need some more proof? The picture below shows Jonathan Cahn showing the Hebrew letter for Shin ( ש) hand sign in Kabbalah, made popular by Dr Spok in Star Trek also known as the Vulcan salute.  See here as Nelson Mandela does the same Freemason hand sign.

The Hebrew letter ש Shin is the twenty-first letter of the Kabbalistic alphabet

The Shemitah 2015

The Berean Call says:

This imposed Shemitah judgment was very specific and involved  only the nation of Israel . Since no Gentile nations were ever obligated to keep the Shemitah, there is no scriptural basis for suggesting that any other nation would ever experience an imposed Shemitah judgment. Yet, this is precisely what Jonathan Cahn suggests that America has experienced.

Cahn also wrongly implies that the Shemitah is essentially a universal  principle  that is somehow integrated into the order of the universe. Cahn makes the following assertion in his book:

[KAPLAN] “Seven years-the biblical period of time that concerns a nation’s financial and economic realms.” [This and all quotes are taken from: Jonathan Cahn,  The Harbinger  (Lake Mary, FL: Frontline, Charisma Media/Charisma House Book Group, 2011)]

Although Israel was on a seven-year economic cycle, no biblical passages support Cahn’s idea that natural economic cycles of seven years exist for nations in general. Furthermore, financial experts have not identified any seven-year economic cycle. http://www.thebereancall.org/content/october-2014-extra-shemitah

If anything happens during The Shemitah (September 2015), it’s not because of God and a connection to Isaiah 9:10, it’s because the Freemasons who control this world are pushing the buttons and they are making things happen (in cycles of 7 as it’s a ‘magic’ number) for their own purposes to further the progress of a New World Order.

Here is Christine Lagarde from the IMF who tells us that the Illuminati are also very interested in the number 7 and cycles of 7.

Jonathan Cahn is using these Harbinger and Shemitah fables to catch millions of unsuspecting Christians into thinking that it’s God’s timing and God’s hand at work, when in fact it’s Satan’s timing, and Satan’s hand at work.

Occult Teachings:

Title:  Jonathan Cahn on TBN:  God of all Nations  

Why would a Christian like Jonathan Cahn appear on the Vatican’s television channel called TBN?

God is not God of all nations, he is not God of this world.   Satan is god of this world.

2 Corinthians 4:4  “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

Satan is the prince of this world:

John 12:31 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”

We read that Satan influences the unsaved people of this world, he influences unbeliever’s hopes, dreams, ideals and opinions etc.

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

So then who is the God of all nations? None other than Satan of course.

2 Kings 17:29 “Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt.”

For Jonathan Cahn who claims to be a Christian to not know who the god of this world is, is shocking to say the least.  His god is Satan, and his god is ruling this world.


I have chosen below a couple of videos from this list on Cahn’s website and found the corresponding video on Youtube where Jonathan teaches occult teachings:

Title: The Alpha Light

Message Number: 1932
Date: 2014-12-21
Summary:  From the beginning of creation to the incarnation and the resurrection – it all begins with light. And not just light, but the alpha light. It is the alpha light that has the power to change everything. Learn the secret of using the Alpha Light in every circumstance to change everything.  [Emphasis added]

So who is this Alpha light Jonathan Cahn is speaking about? The Bible says about God, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.” (Revelation 22:13)  It does not say I am the Alpha light.  Cahn also  says “From the beginning of creation to the incarnation and the resurrection, it all begins with light”  This is a lie, it all began with the Word.  The bible says,

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet.  In modern usage it would mean “from A to Z”. By combining the two, Alpha and Omega it signifies completeness.  In reference to Jesus Christ it signifies His completeness and demonstrates Him to be the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  Jesus is complete. He was with God in the beginning and He will be with God in the end. Jesus is the beginning and the ending.

Who then is this Alpha light who was at the beginning according to Jonathan Cahn.  The bible refers to Satan as being an “angel of light” in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15.  Lucifer is a Latin word that means “light bearer”. It comes from the translation of Isaiah 14:12 where Satan is called (hay-lale’) in hebrew meaning “the morning-star” (in the sense of brightness) and it’s root word means “to shine”.  So as we can see Satan is seen as someone who gives light.   Satan tried to usurp God’s throne, the bible says:

Isaiah 14:13-14  “13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

Now we can see why Satan in Luciferianism refers to himself as the Alpha light because he is still trying to be higher than God.  Jonathan Cahn says, “Learn the secret of using the Alpha Light in every circumstance to change everything”.  What he is saying is this, learn to use Satan the Alpha light, instead of Jesus Christ – the way, the truth and the life.

Let’s hear what Freemasons have to say:


“Lucifer, the Light-bearer!  Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness!  Lucifer, the Son of the Morning!  Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls?  Doubt it not!”  [Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff; Red Emphasis added]

What a revelation!  From the first degree, the first Initiation, the Mason is urged mightily to “seek the Light“!  The average Mason is continually saying that he is “seeking the Light”, and will spend his entire life “moving toward the Light”.  Almost every person in Western Civilization will assume that this “Light” is the revelation of the God of the Bible; indeed, this statement is held up continuously to try to convince us that Masonry is Christian.  Yet, here, Albert Pike is saying that Lucifer is the One who bears the Light of Freemasonry!  Lucifer is the Light-bearer of Freemasonry http://www.cuttingedge.org/free11.html

Title: The State of Onement

Message Number: 1918
Date: 2014-10-05
Summary: The Mystery of Yom Kippur and the Bible itself is about becoming one with God. Most believers never enter it, but you can. How to live in the state of Onement.  [Emphasis added]

A state on onement?  Jonathan Cahn says: “…the bible itself is about becoming one with God. Most believers never enter it, but you can”  This is clearly a higher level of spirituality of some kind, because until now only some Christians have attained it. Jonathan Cahn will give you the secret on how you can enter into a state of becoming one with God.  Occultists like to take the word “atonement” and break it down to another word “at-one-ment”.A truly born again child of God does not need to become “at-one-ment” or figure out how to find the “state of onement” with God because Jesus said,

John 14:20   “In that day [His resurrection] you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.”

When you come born again, He made us one with Himself, His (our) Father and the Holy Spirit.   You don’t have to figure out how to become at-one with God and neither do you become a god because of this.

New Agers believe that “you are not separate from God; every person is born a piece of God.”  In order to be “at-one-ment” with God you need to meditate and believe that God is in everyone and everything including yourself.  A “state of oneness” means that you need to find the Christ within, and become a God.

Jonathan Cahn teaches that he will give you the keys on how to enter in becoming one with God after you are saved – those who teach that people need to become one with God are proclaiming another Gospel, another Jesus and another spirit.

Please read this article that explains more about At-one-ment or Oneness theory:  Guilt by Association


Jonathan Cahn is a Freemason leading million of Christians astray with his new revelations, keys and mysteries.  He appears on every false teachers TV show and tickles peoples ears with this false teachings.  People need to ignore this man and his teachings.  We are living in the last of the last days and I believe there are going to be more men like Jonathan Cahn (possibly from a messianic stand point) coming to the forefront however they will be even more charismatic and even more deceiving, so much so that if it were possible even the Elect would be deceived.  Please note, he does not believe in the Rapture and believes Christians are going to go through the Tribulation.

Matthew 24:24  “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

Loves Jesus. You seem unsympathetic to those who are being deceived by false prophets and teachers. I suggest that you repent of your evil if you really “Love Jesus.”



Oh my gosh – what arrogance and smug “we are the true believers” rubbish from Uncle Tom & Aunty Deborah – the self-proclaimed true discerners ( thereby relegating the Holy Spirit altogether).
May I remind you that the only UNFORGIVABLE SIN is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit….

Tom Lessing (Discerning the World)

Kevin, Ah, so, now suddenly when you contend earnestly for the faith and expose false teachers and their doctrines you are blaspheming the Holy Spirit.

May I remind you.

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:9-11)



[DELETED by DTW – Has Jonathan Cahn hired people to spam this website with useless comments who praise him and decry us? I’m wondering because you all seem to say the exact same nonsense.]


Just found your site while I was researching Jonathan Cahn. I never cared much for Cahn…pretty leery of him, but your writing has a bad tone in it. It didn’t accomplish what you wanted it to with me. In fact you seem trite and superficial, and are probably doing more harm than good. I won’t be back.

Thanks for going.

Your assumptions about Masons are not true at all. I stopped reading right there. I love Jonathan Cahn’s teachings. And yes, Christians should be in touch with the Jewishness of. Christianity. Jesus, or more accurately, Yeshua, was a Jew and He kept all the feasts and laws. You need to read the history of Christianity. All of Yeshua’s followers were observant Jews. After Constantine converted to Christianity he westernized it taking all the Jewishness away. Now, many Christians are realizing the richness of their faith by studying the roots of our faith. Paul speaks much about being grafted in. It’s a sign of the end times that Jews are turning to belief in their Messiah Yeshua and becoming Messianic Jews and Christians are returning to their Jewish roots. You seriously need to educate yourself more in many areas before you trash Rabbi Cahn.

Tom (Discerning the World)

Gayle Wheat.

So, if you do not keep the laws and the feasts you are going to hell? (Amos 5:21). I am not so sure you really know Jesus Christ of the Bible as your Savior. Paul says: “Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.” (laws). (Gal 3:24-25). You have abandoned Jesus Christ to place yourself again under a schoolmaster (the law). The craze to return to your Hebrew roots (laws, feasts, practices) is akin to wanting to return to something that no longer exists.

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Gal 3:26-29).

The return to your Hebrew roots is indeed a return to Pharisee-ism.

Tom (Discerning the World)

Gayle Wheat.

You said, Jesus kept the laws. That’s not true. He fulfilled them.

And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him? How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him? And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath. (Mark 2:23-28).

Those who are in Christ (truly saved) have no need to keep the laws and the feasts because they are IN the Lord of the Sabbath who has already fulfilled them all. To try and keep the laws and the feasts is a denial that Christ’s fulfillment of them all is insufficient. It is NOT faith.

Yes there will be a Rapture, But “when” is the question. There is one repeated statement from Jesus in His messages to the seven churches in Revelation (KJV-Rev Ch 2 thru 3). He said to “Overcome” in each of the seven messages. What do you suppose he meant by that? in (KJV) Rev 14:12 it says, “And here are the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God (this would be the Jews), and the faith of Jesus (this would be the Christians). Now (KJV) Rev 13:7 ” And it was given unto him (this would be the Antichrist) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations”. That sounds like all of us. If the saints are told to overcome and the Antichrist is to make war with the saints, sounds like we all just might go thru some or maybe all of the Tribulation period. If I believe in the Pre Trib Rapture, but I’ve been mislead by well meaning preachers, AND THEY UNKNOWINGLY TAUGHT ME WRONG, and I have to go thru the Tribulation – WILL I BE SPIRITUALLY STRONG ENOUGH TO OVERCOME AND NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST? You have to take the mark of the beast to buy or sell (KJV-Rev 13:17) – this would be tough, if I don’t want to starve, or see my Grandchildren starve. Think deeply on this, and Prepare yourself for the worst.

renTom (Discerning the World)

Do you always make a difference between Jewish believers and Gentile believers? Are Jews saved by keeping the commandments and Gentiles by faith? Revelation 14:12 does not say “And here are the patience of the Jewish saints (those who keep the commandments) and the Gentile saints (those who live by faith).”: It starts off by simply saying in the very beginning “And here are the patience of the SAINTS” and then, after the grammatical colon, amplifies the meaning of “saints” – those who are obedient to God’s commands through faith in Chris Jesus.” The command to which this section refers is to be patient amidst grave persecution and to remain faithful to Christ Jesus unto death. The meaning of “patience” here is to wait with watchful endurance for God to fulfill his promises in the direst of circumstances. Your very subtle accusation that the Pretrib Rapture is a bogus belief because it fails to prepare the saints for the seven-year tribulation is an old accusation that holds no water and is completely false.

No amount or degree of preparation by any other interpretation of the Rapture – Midtrib. Prewrath or Posttrib, including Pretrib – can prepare you for the seven-year tribulation or any other kind of tribulation. If you are not already prepared now, this moment, for any kind of persecution in your home, your work place, among you friends etc. by exercising patience with your mind stayed on Jesus and his promises (and NOT the teaching of men) you will not be prepared for the worst persecution that is ever going to hit the world. The fact that you don’t want your children or grandchildren to suffer as Christians shows me that you are not prepared yet. If you were you would’ve obeyed Jesus’ words in Matthew 10,

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. (Matthew 10:37)

Carolyn Barton

I was asked to review your site/ blog. There are several red flags on this site. Scriptures are quoted out of
context on a continual basis. The original Hebrew texts are not used. The translation that is used, is one that does not accurately translate Hebrew words correctly. The scriptures that are used to validate a point, are always used incorrectly and uses the language of the King of England. It has been widely documented this translation was heavily influenced by Roman Catholicism under the supreme rule of the Pope. A man that insists, he is the one that intercedes between G-D and man. That is blasphemy! Yeshua is the only intercession between man and Adonai. The Hebrew Scriptures are the original inspired word of G-D. In this presentation, there is an absolute lack of knowledge of Jewish history and culture. The book of Acts is an accurate record of Messianic Jews presenting the gospel of the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua and the building of Messiah’s communities, ( they are not called churches and there are no denominations), which resulted in many people being saved, and therefore, being ingrafted into the family of the G-d of Israel. These people known as Messianic Christians. Adonai established Israel, the Jewish people, culture, and laws, Torah. And HE designed the temple and instructed HIS people according to HIS ways, on their dress, temple protocol, instructed them of all the festivals, and High Holy Days. Adonai does use numbers, heavenly signs, and the Hebrew calendar to communicate to HIS people. There is a distinct ignorance, which causes everything written about Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, to be tainted and used as an attempt to mislead those who are not yet equipped so see the large holes in this debate/argument. So to those reading articles on this site, be advised these individuals are not qualified to declare who is and who is not a false prophet.

Hi Carolyn Barton.

One question. Have you ever been to the Ohel (Chabad-Lubavitch) in New York City?

In your entire comment of about 318 words you did not once mention or refer to “salvation,” “redemption” or “faith.” That says it all. You are so utterly bamboozled by the Jewish Roots movement and especially the very dangerous occult Kabbalah that your eyes are blinded by Jewish culture, laws, the Torah, the temple, their dress, temple protocol, festivals, High and Holy Days, numerology, signs and Hebrew Calendar that you miss true salvation. Let me remind you of what God says in his Word about tradition and festivals.

He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. (Mark 7:6-9)

I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. (Amos 5:21)

You wrote that the assemblies of Christians were not supposed to be called churches. The word “ekklesia” (called out ones) appears in 79 verses in the New Testament and simply means an “assembly of Christians” which most English translations refer to as “church.” Is your Jewish Kabbalah rendition of “Messiah communities” more holy than mere “church” so that your view of it leads to heaven and the KJV view leads to hell? My dear, it is actually you and your Kabbalah friends who are not qualified to discern the dangers in Cahn’s Kabbalah.



I don’t even know how I got here! Finally someone with discernment is calling out the FRAUD!!! OUTSTANDING article…BRAVO! You just got saved to my “Favorites” – Praise Jesus Christ!

I believe the Jesus/Yeshua/Yahshua is LOVE, that’s what he taught His deciples, love and compassion. Secondly I believe that He said that the greatest commandment is to love God/Yahweh with all your heart and soul…. and your neighbour as yourself and on these two commandments hang all the Laws and the prophets. And I beleive that the only way to know one who loves God, is by the feast days they hold. You christians say you believe but every holiday you bless are feast days of ancient false prophets. How can you understand people who keep the worship of Eternel Heavenly Father when you are lost in pagan worship. Oh, yes, I forgot God understands. The question is, do you love the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, do you believe that He sent His only son to die for our sins and if you do why are you not uncomfortable blessing all this pagan days. And you all know very well that they are pagan days full of Sun worship. And all books are good to read, it’s not bad to know what the enemy is thinking but you have to know yourself before entering the area of the enemy. We live in the last days, we all agree on that, well it is written that daughters will dream dreams, sons prophecy etc etc now, how can they do that when they are all raptured. Matt22:37 -40.

Tom lessing admin, you should read Isaiah 56 very very carefully, 56::3 says ” Neither let the son of the stranger that have joined himself to YHWH speak saying YHWH hath utterly separated me from His people neither let the eunuch say behold I am a dry tree 4. For thus saith YHWH unto the eunuch THAT KEEP MY SABBATHS and choose the things that please me and take hold of my covernant 5 Even to them will I give in my house and within my walls A PLACE AND A NAME better than sons and daughters I will give them an EVERLASTING name that shall not be cut off 6 Also the sons of the stranger that join themselves to YHWH to serve Him and to love the Name of YHWH to be His servant EVERYONE THAT KEEPETH THE SABBATH FROM POLLUTING IT AND TAKETH HOLD OF MY COVERNANT 7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer their burnt offering and sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar for mine house shall be a house of prayer for all people.(caps by me)
So Tom Lessing, the sabbaths and ordonances are of importance.
I observe that you don’t answer on the subject of these pagan holidays. Jonathan Cahn is one man and there are many christian pastors with erroneous teaching in America.
I pray the sunday worshippers will see truth, the day was changed and they boasted about it put YHWH’s change will be decisive. Shalom

Hi Sharon. I have one question for you. Do you strictly adhere to keeping the SABBATH and why? And while you at it, would you mind telling us how you were saved?

I have a friend who just loves this guys teachings. He swears by them. I myself have read some of his stuff and it was interesting. The idea that everything is a mystery and so forth just bugs me. I believe God gave us the bible to understand. There something very off. I love learning biblical stuff, but i just cant watch this guy or listen to him.The gospel is for sale by these rock star preachers. Christian tv promotes many false profits, and he is on every ones shows, selling these mysteries, from bakker to copeland. maybe its just me, could be

False prophet Jonathan Cahn and New Apostolic Reformation heavyweight Kevin Jessip co- chairs of the upcoming national and global false revival have been working with global and national “spiritual” leaders in preparation for The Return, National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance, National Mall, September 26, 2020



I have listened to Jonathan Cahn and read several of his books, and nowhere does Rabbi Cahn quote from the Zohar or preach Kabbalah, and if holding one’s chin makes you a Freemason, then I guess that I, and billions of people around the world have unknowingly joined Freemasonry!
What Rabbi Cahn does preach is that Yeshua (Jesus Christ) is the Messiah and the Savior of the world, and that by His sacrifice, we are redeemed.

As a former Evangelical who became very tired of “Christian Nightclubs”, that is Christian churches who are more concerned with “social justice” and entertaining their congregations, rather than preaching the word of God, I found that Messianic congregations hold fast to the word of Our Lord and Savior, and continue to preach sin and repentance.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
