Bakker And Cahn: God Will Judge US For Rebuilding At Ground Zero

Televangelist Jim Bakker invited messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn onto his program yesterday to discuss Cahn’s assertion that a major disaster will (or possibly won’t) strike America in September, which also happened to be a great opportunity for Bakker to hawk his massive buckets of survival food.

“Something is happening,” Bakker said, “too many prophesies are coming together, too many warnings, too many signs in the heavens, too many dates, too much altogether. Have you ever studied any time where there’s any more pieces coming together in one time in history?”

Cahn replied that he had not, saying “it’s almost like every factor, everything pointing to judgment, pointing to shaking, is happening now,” including “America’s gigantic accelerating apostasy,” the Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage, the U.S. being “on the verge of abandoning Israel,” and the beginning of the “Shemitah” year in the Jewish calendar, which Cahn has linked to any number of events in world history.

The “last harbinger,” he said, is the completion of One World Trade Center at the site of the collapsed Twin Towers, which he called the “embodiment of defiance” against God, because the September 11 attacks were a divine warning that America ignored.

“It was like, we’re not going to listen to God, we’re going to be bigger, we’re going to be better, and we’re not going to listen to God’s warning,” Bakker agreed.

Bakker urged viewers to buy Cahn’s book, “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” because “something big is happening,” evidence of which he got during a stop in New York on the way to tour Israel with Cahn last year.

Bakker explained how he happened to get a hotel room in New Jersey with a direct view of One World Trade Center on the very day it opened for occupancy, which was a clear sign that “God had me there in destiny.”

Cahn agreed that there are “no accidents at all,” before sharing his theory that the fact that some of the offices in the tower had become infested with rats was a warning of God’s imminent judgment on America.

“I believe God always warns before he judges,” he said. “And the point of this is this was to get out before what is coming, before what is coming. God’s people can prepare and those who are not God’s people can look afterwards and say, ‘God is calling us, we need to get back to God.’”

Glenn Beck And Jonathan Cahn Agree That God's Judgment Is Imminent ... Maybe

Glenn Beck spent an entire hour of his radio program today interviewing Jonathan Cahn about his "Mystery of the Shemitah" theory, which postulates that some massive calamity — possibly an economic meltdown, possibly a terrorist attack, possibly a natural disaster — is going to strike the United States on September 13.

Unsurprisingly, Cahn was in complete agreement with Beck's own prophetic vision that America has reached a "tipping point" and that God is giving us one last warning before judgment and destruction befall us. After once again carefully hedging his bets by asserting that it's entirely possible that nothing at all will happen in September, Cahn warned that we are in a very "dangerous period" thanks especially to the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.

"I'm not going to be politically correct," he said. "It wasn't long ago that we crossed another line and Supreme Court struck down the biblical definition of marriage. That is major."

Saying that the decision was "an act of desecration," Cahn warned that "marriage is a sacred vessel of God. We cannot change that. We have done something major. We have crossed the line not long ago and now we are heading to the climax of this period. So, yeah, I totally agree. We are at a dangerous period where we are war with the very things that founded this nation."

Cahn: America Should Prepare For God's Judgment For Gay Marriage In September

Jonathan Cahn released a video today warning viewers to prepare for God's judgment for the nation's growing "apostasy" to fall upon America in September in the form of economic collapse, natural disaster, or a terrorist attack.

Or maybe not ... as Cahn was careful to hedge his bets by also asserting that possibly nothing at all will happen because God "is sovereign and He doesn't have to work according to our schedule or understanding." But even if nothing happens, Cahn said, America still deserves God's judgment because of things like the legalization of gay marriage.

"I believe a great shaking is coming to America and the world," he said. "We have watched the apostasy of America continue, it has continued and it accelerating. The harbingers have not stopped, they have continued to manifest, which are indications of a nation progressing to judgment."

"How does judgment come?" Cahn continued. "It can come in the form of collapse economically, financially, the nation's blessing, sustenance being removed. It can also come in the form of natural disaster, earthquakes, famines, other things, many ways in the natural realm. It can also come in the form of man-made disaster, as in terrorism, war, as in 9/11."

And America is ripe for such judgment because of the recent Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide, he said.

"This summer, America crossed the line," he warned. "This was a tectonic event, a seismic change with ramifications not just about marriage but about the future of the culture, of society, of religious freedom, of persecution and, I believe, judgment."

Os Hillman: You Too Can Profit From God's Coming Judgment

If you’re trying to make plans for the Last Days, Religious Right commentators are making it a little hard to pick a date. As Brian noted this morning, WND news editor Leo Hohmann focused on various prophecies suggesting something cataclysmic is in store for September 23, 2015. But he also mentioned another sign in the heavens: “The Shemitah year comes to a climax on the Hebrew calendar date of Elul 29, which is Sept. 13 on the Gregorian calendar.”

If the reference to a Shemitah year has you scratching your head, Dominionist Os Hillman comes to the rescue via Charisma News with a question that has certainly been on our minds: “Are We Entering a Modern-Day Amorite Judgment?”

Hillman, who just last week was suggesting that God is using Donald Trump to wake up America, draws on the teaching of Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, the end-times author who says the 9/11 attacks are part of God’s judgment on America. In his book the Harbinger, Cahn said America’s current perils were foretold in the Old Testament. Hillman reports that Cahn has also written a book about The Mystery of the Shemitah.

The premise of the book is that in Jewish history and custom there was something called the Year of Jubilee. Every 49 years and every seventh year the people of Israel were to forgive their debts and allow their land to rest. The word Shemitah is most often translated as "the release" or "the remission." The English word remission is defined as "the cancellation or reduction of a debt or penalty."…

When people do not voluntarily release debt, God causes a forced debt release through a financial collapse. However, people lose their assets in this involuntary debt purge which leads to recessions, depressions, foreclosures and bankruptcies….

OK, it gets a little dense here, but let’s follow along:

Shemitah became the name of the last day of the seventh year, whereas Elul 29, became known as the Day of Remission. But it also became the name of the Sabbath year in its entirety. The seventh year would become known as the year of the Shemitah….So the word Shemitah covers both the seventh year and the last day of that 7th year. There's a reason for that. That last day of Elul 29 is the year's crescendo, it's peak and combination-the Remission of the Year for Remission.

In a sense, everything about the Shemitah year builds up to that final day, when everything is released, remitted and wiped away in one day—or, more specifically, to the eve of that day, to the final sunset.

Let’s get to next month’s cataclysm:

Rabbi Cahn has documented when the last seven major stock market crashes have taken place. He cites each of these have taken place in a Shemitah year: the seventh year of a seven-year cycle.

The 2007-2008 financial crash took place in a Shemitah year. 2015 is the seventh year of a seven-year Shemitah period.

The final day of the Shemitah year will be Sunday, September 13, 2015 which is also Elul 29, the last day of the Shemitah seventh year. The last open day of the markets will fall on Sept. 11, 2015 two days before Elul 29. The greatest stock market crashes have all been on these Elul 29 days, the last day of a Shemitah year.

Consider the following, arranged by the Shemitah years, the event, and the percentage the stock market crashed:

  • 1901-1902, Northern Pacific Crisis, 46 percent
  • 1916-1917, 1st World War, 40 percent
  • 1930-1932, Great Depression, 86 percent
  • 1937-1938, Great Depression, 50 percent
  • 1973-1974, Oil Crisis, 45 percent
  • 2000-2001, 911 attacks, dot.com crash 37 percent
  • 2007-2008, Mortgage Crisis, 50 percent
  • Now: 2015 Shemitah year—Sept. 13, Elul 29, last day of Shemitah year

But who are the Amorites? Well, it’s complicated.

In many ways I see the current crisis as a time of coming into a maturity of a judgment from God on mammon and greed in society worldwide. It is similar to the time when God caused the people of Israel to be freed while at the same time they went into the promised land to judge the Amorites. The iniquity of the Amorites had come to maturity and God was now judging the Amorites through the nation of Israel.

For clarification, “judging the Amorites” meant slaughtering them. So if we are in for an “Amorite judgment,” that doesn’t sound so good. But there is an upside: Hillman says that whatever “shaking” God has in store will open the door to needed revival.

Could we now be entering a modern-day version of the Amorite judgment in the world whereby God will accomplish two things again—exercise judgment while bringing a much-needed spiritual awakening? Genesis 15 describes the judgment of the Amorites when God told Abraham that his seed would go into exile in Egypt for 400 years, and then would come out, with God's help, and possess the land.

Have we come to a point in world history where God is saying, "Enough is enough" and He is now judging the financial systems of the world similar to the 400-year time with Amorites? I am not a prophet, but we certainly see a shaking throughout the world. The judgment of the Amorites ushered in the people of God to take the land. Regardless of whether this is true, I do believe this is ushering in a time when the church can make the greatest impact on the culture if we press into God during this season. The church has been in much prayer over the last decade asking God for revival….

Unlike other nations, there is a call of God on America. We had a spiritual birth as a nation. God will not allow His children and His nation to wander without reproofing sin as a good Father should. If there is no shaking then we have no hope for us. It is the only way to revival.

Ever the optimist, or ever the businessman, Hillman says believers can profit if they prepare:

How can believers take advantage of this season? If we are prepared this could be the greatest wealth transfer we have ever seen in our lifetime, or it can be a devastating time if you are not prepared.

Hillman asks for readers’ email address in order to get his preparation tips.

Let’s assume a major financial crash might happen as a result of the Shemitah year. What should you do now? Here are some steps I have taken along with many others I know who have taken them. Keep in mind that you must be directed by the Holy Spirit in your own preparation. God told Jeremiah to buy a piece of land when he knew his nation was going to be invaded by Babylon. Obeying God is not always logical.

  1. Get out of debt if you can. Now is not the time to purchase a major purchase like a home.
  2. Get out of the stock market – we expect a correction of at least 50% of its current value.
  3. Diversify – keep your funds in different places. Major banks may not be safe during this time. Smaller community banks tend to be safer.
  4. Cash – have some cash on hand in a safe place in your home or other location.
  5. Risk capital – use your risk capital to invest in things that may actually go up during a downturn in the stock market. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) might be a consideration. Talk to your investment adviser.
  6. Sell your home – this might seem radical, but if you do not plan to stay in your home for a very long time, it would be a good time to sell and use those proceeds to buy a home much cheaper during the downturn. You could purchase a home for 30-60% less if what we think happens actually happens.
  7. Cash Investments – Oversees there are banks and bonds that are paying a negative interest rank to depositors. Why would anyone do that? It is because they are looking for a safe haven because they believe what is coming could cause them to lose those funds if not placed in a safe place. US Treasury Bills are a safe investment for sums of cash right now. Go to http://www.treasurydirect.gov to learn more.

If there is a significant downturn and people are thrust into adversity, then this will be an opportunity for those who plan well to minister to those who did not. It is not a strategy to hoard or prepare out of fear, but a strategy to be a blessing to others should such an event occur. It is a strategy to benefit for yourself and others through wise planning.

 

Jonathan Cahn: God Will Judge America For Rainbow Lights On White House, World Trade Center

Back in April, the day after the Supreme Court heard arguments on the constitutionality of state gay-marriage bans, End Times rabbi Jonathan Cahn spoke to members of Congress gathered at an event in the Capitol and told them that a ruling in favor of marriage equality would cause God to pass judgment on America .

Speaking at a conference in Pennsylvania this weekend, Cahn repeated the warning he had given to members of Congress, saying that following the Supreme Court’s ruling, we are “watching a civilization approaching judgment” as we witness “the apostasy, the falling of America.”

Cahn was particularly concerned by the decision to project rainbow colors on the White House following the marriage equality ruling. “Just a few days ago, the highest house in the land, representing the American government, was bathed in colors representing not the American flag but of another flag representing the celebration of what the Bible calls evil,” he said. This, he added, was an attempt to “desecrate” the name of God.

Cahn also tied the decision to light One World Trade Center in rainbow colors to his somewhat convoluted theory that an inscription President Obama left on a beam of the building in 2012 was in fact an invitation for God’s judgment on America.

“God is long suffering and merciful,” he said, “but God is not mocked.”

Cahn also predicted that Christians in America will soon face persecution on par with that faced by victims of violent religious persecution in the Middle East.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 5/11/15

  • Want to spend 24 hours on the National Mall singing the National Anthem with various Religious Right activists? You are in luck!
  • Franklin Graham says that if the Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage bans, it "sets the stage for persecution of believers committed to living by the truth of God’s Holy Word."
  • Some bad news from Jonathan Cahn: "[D]o I believe that we can avoid God's judgment, the hand of His shaking? No—not any more than could ancient Israel. No nation, so blessed with God's blessings, can so blatantly war against the God of its blessings and expect those blessings to continue. I believe a great shaking is coming to this nation."
  • Bryan Fischer says homosexuality "is a worse form of sexual sin because it deviates even further from God’s design for sexual union than adultery does."
  • Finally, apparently using the abbreviations B.C.E and C.E instead of B.C and A.D is a form of anti-Christian persecution: "On the surface it is peaceful and silent, but underneath just as deadly as the physical kind sans the torture, beheadings, and refugees."

Capitol Prayer Service: God Will Punish America For Legalizing Gay Marriage

Last night, dozens of members of Congress gathered with Religious Right activists in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall  for the annual "Washington: A Man of Prayer" event, a two-hour prayer service meant to honor the anniversary of George Washington's first presidential inauguration.

Most of the members of Congress who participated this year prayed for God's guidance as they carry out their duties as elected officials and for His protection over America, while some offered more pointed prayers, such as Rep. Joe Pitts, who lamented that we have become "spiritual and moral dwarfs," Rep. Doug  LaMalfa, who worried about the "seemingly godless times" in which this nation finds itself as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on marriage equality, and Rep. Bill Flores, who complained that "we are truly a troubled nation" in which Christians are being ridiculed and persecuted for defending the family and their faith:

End Times rabbi Jonathan Cahn spoke near the end of the prayer service and specifically warned the Supreme Court that it would bring God's judgment upon this nation if it strikes down state marriage bans.

"The Supreme Court opens its sessions with the words 'God save the United States and this honorable court,'" Cahn declared. "But if this honorable court should overrule the word of God and strike down the eternal rules of order that Heaven itself hath ordained, how then will God save it? Supreme Court justices, can you judge the ways of God? Can you, with man-made verdicts, overrule the eternal laws of God? There is another court and there is another judge and before him, all men and all judges will give account. If the nation's high court should pass judgement on the Almighty, should you then be surprised that the Almighty should then pass judgment on the court and that nation?"

End Times Preacher: Gay Marriage Victory Will Lead To God's Wrath

End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn believes that if the Supreme Court strikes down the remaining state bans on same-sex marriage, America will experience tremendous calamities.

Cahn, a messianic rabbi who has linked gay rights to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacksfascism and the End Times, told WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah in an interview at the National Religious Broadcasters convention posted online today that the court could usher in a series of divine punishments just as it did with the 1973 ruling on abortion rights, Roe v. Wade.

“Within one month of Roe v. Wade, that Supreme Court decision with abortion, the financial realm collapsed, led to a global recession, the same year America lost its first war in modern history or ever in Vietnam,” he said.

He added that the upcoming marriage case is “a very cataclysmic, moral, spiritual thing. What’s that going to do in the rest of the realm? Well I believe it is all coming together.”

Five Moments From 2014 That Definitely Were A Sign Of The End Times

What better way to criticize your political opponents than by accusing them of creating an oppressive government that will lead to the coming of the Antichrist and fulfill biblical prophecy on the Last Days?

Warning about the imminent end of the world may seem extreme, but it is a great way for media personalities, politicians and activists to rile up and instill fear in their base. Whether such arguments are purely cynical or genuine, in 2014 many conservative pundits cited the End Times to back up their denunciations of everything from gay rights to the so-called ‘War on Christmas.’

The Obama Presidency

After leaving Congress, Michele Bachmann hopes to become a major conservative voice on foreign policy issues. Among her qualifications, apparently, is her knowledge of the End Times. Bachmann has warned that the Bible prophesied the president’s foreign policy decisions, arguing that Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are “calling for actual war and economic war against Israel, or at least suggesting it as such.”

“The nations of the world will come against Israel, and the scripture very specifically says all nations. Now for the United States, we don’t have that experience until recently under President Obama with the United States not standing with Israel,” Bachmann said in an interview with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, adding that the Jewish community “sold out Israel” in order to “support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president.”

Pat Robertson became so concerned with Obama’s term in office that he called on “700 Club” viewers to “pray to be delivered from this president,” warning that America will face “serious decline unless something dramatic is done about it.” Televangelist Matthew Hagee feared that Obamacare would condition people to accept “the kind of global dictatorship that is described in the End Times” and take on the Mark of the Beast.

Pastor Franklin Graham suggested that God will bless Russia thanks to Vladimir Putin’s leadership while removing His favor from America as a result of administration policies that are “pushing the gay-lesbian agenda.” “Our president and his attorney general have turned their backs on God and His standards, and many in the Congress are following the administration’s lead,” Graham said.

Pastor Mark Creech, who is affiliated with the American Family Association, wrote a column for the Christian Post implying that Obama is the Antichrist who will surface “in the last days – the day before Christ's return.”

Radio host Rick Wiles dedicated an entire show with Jonathan Wright to discussing how the “Bible Code” proves Obama is the Antichrist and even offered the strongest evidence yet that Obama is either the Antichrist or his forerunner: a fly once landed on him.

Ebola

Following the lead of Republican politicians who cynically turned the Ebola outbreak in West Africa into a campaign issue, only to have their incendiary rhetoric about Ebola (and Ebola-tainted urine) subside after the Fall election, many conservative pundits and pastors used Ebola to stoke fear about imminent dictatorship, divine punishment and the end of the world as we know it.

Televangelist John Hagee told viewers that the Ebola virus is God’s way of showing his anger with President Obama’s foreign policies, while his son Matthew Hagee suggested that the Bible pointed to Ebola as a sign of the End Times. Another televangelist, Jim Bakker, offered a special discount on survival food items, including desserts, in case Ebola and other calamities bring down the country.

The doomsday prophet Glenn Beck — who raised fears about Nigerian prison guards possibly spreading Ebola to Texas and suggested that Obama doesn’t mind Texans contracting Ebola since it is a conservative state — was pretty sure that the Ebola outbreak is the beginning of God’s judgment on the country and America’s imminent collapse.

Several GOP members of Congress issued claims that Obama will intentionally infect Americans with the virus, while others made completely baseless allegations that Ebola-infected immigrants are descending upon America.

WorldNetDaily, a bastion of right-wing conspiracy theories, at different times alleged that Obama wanted Ebola to spread throughout the country in order to justify his purported plans to establish gulags, lock Americans in FEMA camps and declare martial law.

Far-right radio hosts alleged that Obama wanted to “round up patriots,” ban churches and aid Ebola-infected ISIS fighters, and one Fox News personality said Obama hoped to use Ebola to make America “suffer” while helping his African brethren. One prominent right-wing radio broadcaster, Janet Parshall, said God used Ebola as a “warning” because “he is a gentleman.”

Of course, gay people were also to blame. “Trunews” host Rick Wiles said God will use Ebola to give gays and others an “attitude adjustment,” and pastor Ron Baity, who worked with the Family Research Council to champion his state’s ban on marriage equality, said homosexuality is responsible for the Ebola outbreak since it is “bringing the judgment of God on this nation.”

Gays Rights Victories

Ebola, it turns out, was just one way that gay people, along with supporters of gay rights, tried to usher in the global calamities leading up to the End Times.

Deryl Edwards of Liberty Counsel pointed to growing acceptance of gay Christians as a sign that we are “in the Last Days.” Mission America’s Linda Harvey claimed marriage equality is one reason why “we’re heading into the End Times, and it sure looks like we may be, or the end of America — or both.” Michael Bresciani of the Christian Post said God will use terrorist attacks to punish the country for accepting gay rights. Pastor Flip Benham maintained that homosexuality “destroys those who practice it and nations that approve of it.” Rick Wiles predicted that gay rights will lead to an all-out nuclear war.

Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Dwight McKissic said athlete Michael Sam’s decision to come out of the closet shows that “the spirit of Sodom would be prevalent and prominent in the end time,” since, McKissic claims, “the Anti-Christ would be a homosexual, or certainly unmarried.”

“This is the moral issue of the End Times,” pastor Scott Lively said of homosexuality, lamenting in a radio show interview that “it’s just astonishing how rapidly they are proceeding in homosexualizing the whole world.”

Addressing the National Organization for Marriage’s Washington D.C. rally, Mike Huckabee said that “there is no doubt in my mind” that the U.S. “will feel His hand of judgment” if the courts strike down bans on same-sex marriage. Another speaker at the event, pastor and Pennsylvania politician Sam Rohrer, predicted that the legalization of same-sex marriage will “destroy the very fabric of our nation,” “invite God’s judgment” and “remove His blessing from our nation.”

Televangelist Pat Robertson — who had a banner year of blasting gay people as “terrorists” and demonic — marked Thanksgiving by warning that gay rights are “sowing the seeds” of America’s “destruction.”

Abortion Rights

Not only did we learn this year that the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade was responsible for America’s withdrawal from Vietnam, but the landmark ruling is also apparently paving the way for the Last Days.

“The Response: Louisiana,” the upcoming Baton Rouge prayer rally hosted by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and sponsored by the American Family Association, republished materials from its 2012 Houston event featuring Texas Gov. Rick Perry that blamed abortion rights and homosexuality for natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and for contributing to America’s “ultimate destruction.” (After the materials caused controversy, organizers removed them from their website). Mike Huckabee similarly warned in a speech reflecting on the Holocaust that abortion rights and marriage equality will lead to the collapse of civilization.

Michael Bresciani assured Christian Post readers that the deleterious effects of climate change actually have nothing to do with the environment at all. Instead, Bresciani writes, incidents of extreme weather are just “‘birth pangs’ for a planet about to meet its creator” as legal abortion, along with homosexuality, brings “the antichrist to his short lived rule over a reprobate and dying world.”

In a column published on BarbWire, Bresciani claimed that “gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature,” warning that the “Bible says that when a nation chooses to ignore its sinfulness, God will not only allow them to go reprobate, but will empower them with rulers who will enable them to succeed in their drive to destruction.”

End Times preacher Jonathan Cahn linked abortion rights and same-sex marriage to the September 11 terrorist attacks and a looming “great shaking” from God, and the Oak Initiative said legal abortion led to “the alien invasion” on America’s southern border as “a sign of divine judgment.”

Joel Rosenberg, a prominent Religious Right author who focuses his work on End Times scenarios, told Pat Robertson that legal abortion has turned the U.S. into a worse country than Nazi Germany, warning viewers: “We know the judgment that came on Nazi Germany, and we feel like it was correct, it was just. What do we think is going to happen?”


The War on Christmas

Conservative activists often celebrate Christmas by claiming that they are being persecuted by store clerks and neighbors who dare to say “Happy Holidays” as part of the annual "War on Christmas."

A distraught Franklin Graham warned “the war on Christmas is a war on Christ and His followers” and described it as a satanic plot that may one day lead to violent anti-Christian persecution.

A Renew America columnist said the “war on Christmas” and “the growing disrespect and outright mocking of one of Christianity’s holiest days” is linked to biblical prophecies about the End Times: “While Christians in other nations like Iraq, China, and Iran are being murdered in the most gruesome of ways for their faith in Jesus Christ, America allows Him to be mocked and ridiculed. What kind of people have we become to allow this travesty? God's Word says that ‘in the Last Days, scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires.’ (2 Pe. 3:3 NLT).”

“Friends, what we are seeing is the reason America is not mentioned as a world power in Bible end times prophecy,” writes J.P. Sloane in the far-right outlet BarbWire. “As America continues to travel down the Paganistic heathen slope of perversions—and atheists attacking Christians and Jews—while Muslims are celebrating their holidays in the very capital of our country—yes in our very own White House—Christmas—a legal American holiday—is under attack on a regular annual basis!”

Christian Anti-Defamation Commission President Gary Cass told radio host Jerry Newcombe of Truth in Action Ministries that “the spirit of Antichrist” is behind the mythical War on Christmas.

End Times Preacher's Chanukah Message: Gay Rights & Harry Potter Lead To Fascism

Messianic End Times rabbi Jonathan Cahn, a favorite doomsday preacher among right-wing activists, told WorldNetDaily in an interview today that Chanukah is a time for Americans to reflect on the purported dangers of books like Harry Potter, as well as gay rights laws, which he warned will outlaw the Bible.

According to Cahn, the struggle of the Maccabees is seen today in American society among those who oppose secular government, LGBT equality, the so-called War on Christmas and the country’s transformation into “a post-Christian society” that will ultimately “produce a Hitler or a Stalin, and the antichrist.”

Cahn urged WND readers to become modern-day Maccabees who will fight gay rights and Harry Potter even “if it costs us our life.”

“We are living in such times,” Cahn said. “Believers, if you are a true believer, you’re going to be a thorn in the side of the world. We are already witnessing it. There is a spirit of antichrist in the world.”

Suddenly Christmas becomes taboo. It gets changed to a winter recess. Manger scenes spark lawsuits by atheists, and courts rule in favor of the atheists.

“Did anyone think years ago a manger scene would be controversial?” Cahn asks. “And things that were considered abominations are no longer controversial.”



“So there’s a war going on against anything that’s linked to God, particularly Messiah. There’s a spirit of antichrist that wars against anything, any tradition of the natural order,” Cahn said. “Amazing really.”

“What has been recognized for thousands of years, as long as man’s recorded history, all of a sudden in the last few years man is changing it,” he continued. “Like marriage, like male and female, of course. This is the spirit of antichrist.”

He sees America as morphing into a replica of Europe, which is a post-Christian society. “What happened in Europe is happening here, that a nation that existed only because of God is now changing and trying to eradicate God,” Cahn said.



“A pre-Christian society will produce someone like an Alexander the Great or a Caesar,” Cahn said. “A post-Christian society will produce a Hitler or a Stalin, and the antichrist.”

The spirit of antichrist seeks to remove God from every corner of the culture. The Bible and prayer were removed from schools in 1960s. The Ten Commandments were later removed from courthouses, a process that continues. “Hate laws” have been passed in many cities making it a crime to say anything that paints homosexuality in a negative light.

“What that means is that the Bible then becomes a criminal offense,” Cahn said. “They’re not daring to enforce the implications of these laws but it’s there, it’s just the beginning, but they will.”



More recent Hollywood productions targeting young people are likely to feature blatantly unbiblical themes.

“What is the biggest thing in youth movies? It’s ‘Harry Potter.’ There are many youth who have gone into the occult because of ‘Harry Potter,’” Cahn said. “But the other thing about it, there is no God there. It’s a godless universe filled with witchcraft and man nullifying God.”

This is the kind of cultural rot that the Maccabees resisted.



So Hanukkah unlocks a mystery here because it gives the end time picture of a spirit behind the age, links it to Zeus, which is the same god or spirit behind the origin of Europe, the same god that was behind the war against Israel in Hanukkah, the war against the saints in Revelation, the same god that desecrated the temple – Zeus.

“Of course it’s not Zeus, he doesn’t exist,” Cahn said. “It’s a deeper spirit of another god the bible says the god of this world, who appears in many forms, whose name is Satan.” It’s this same satanic spirit that will war against the saints in the end times.

The culture of the Greeks at the time of the Maccabees was a culture filled with sexual perversity, Cahn said.

This crept into Israel. The culture of the end times will be no different, with the same sins creeping into the church.



The Maccabees fought with that same spirit.

“They said, ‘You know what, we don’t care about protecting ourselves anymore. We care about God’s way, and we’re going to live or die nobly. We’re going to go for it no matter what happens. We’re not going to compromise,’” Cahn said. “If it costs us our life, fine. We’re going to be free now. No fear! That’s the way you have to live.

'And So It Begins': Glenn Beck, The Shemitah, And The End Of America

As a general rule, whatever movie or book that Glenn Beck has recently seen or read is absolutely amazing and contains all of the answers that America needs at this moment and so everyone should see or read it immediately!

As Beck is currently reading Jonathan Cahn's "The Mystery of the Shemitah: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America's Future, the World's Future, and Your Future!," naturally he is convinced that it is the most important book currently in print and so he is talking about it a lot on his radio and television shows and lecturing his staff about it, as he did during yesterday's televised staff meeting.

This book is a follow-up to Cahn's "The Harbinger," which was quite possibly one of the stupidest books ever written, purporting to explain how the 9/11 terrorist attacks were foretold in the Book of Isaiah and how the subsequent construction of the Freedom Tower was an act of defiance against God that will lead to further judgment.

The Shemittah is a Sabbath year on the Jewish calendar during which fields are to be left fallow, no agriculture is to take place, and debts are to be forgiven. It began last month and, according to Cahn's new book, these requirements are going to be imposed upon America in the coming year by God whether we like it or not.

Beck is, of course, entirely convinced that this is true, telling his staff that because America made an "Abrahamic covenant with God" upon the nation's founding, we are being held to the obligations of the Shemitah year and "it is wiping us out" because "God is warning us."

"I don't think it ends the way we want it to end," Beck said. "But we've entered a new period. I can feel it. We've entered a new period. And so it begins":

For those who may not know, "and so it begins" is Beck's shorthand phrase for his belief that everything he's been warning about for the last several years is now all coming true.

Jonathan Cahn Links Legal Abortion To Vietnam War, 9/11

Jonathan Cahn, a messianic rabbi and End Times prophet who is a favorite among Religious Right activists and politicians , claimed in an interview last week that America’s defeat in the Vietnam War and the September 11 attacks were both the result of divine judgment linked to the legalization of abortion in 1973’s Roe v. Wade.

Cahn’s theories are based on the idea that major world events occur on “Shemitah” years, which fall every seven years on the Hebrew calendar, and are either positive or negative depending on God’s opinion of a nation at any given time. He has explained, for instance, that the September 11 attacks and the 2008 financial collapse both happened in “Shemitah” years, and that God allowed them to occur to send a warning to the United States about legal abortion and same-sex marriage.

In an interview on the show “Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural” last week, Cahn expounded on his theory that 9/11 was a punishment from God, and added a new idea: that America’s withdrawal from Vietnam was a warning from God about Roe v. Wade.

End Times Preacher Seeks Support From Top Republicans

Jonathan Cahn recently started boasting that members of Congress have been reading his End Times book, "The Harbinger," about how God used the September 11th attacks and the 2008 economic crash to punish America for its support of abortion rights and gay marriage.

WorldNetDaily, which has heavily promoted Cahn’s book and a film based on his work, is out with a story today on Republican figures including Speaker John Boehner, Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee are cozying up to the messianic rabbi.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s runaway bestseller “The Harbinger” has been gaining the attention of America’s top lawmakers.

At a recent event on Capitol Hill commemorating George Washington’s prayer meeting after his inauguration, Cahn spoke to a hall filled with government officials, members of Congress including Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., justices and other influential citizens.



Speaking about reading “Harbinger,” Gov. Mike Huckabee said, “If you have not read this remarkable book, it’s one of the most soul-stirring, and stunning, spell-binding books I think I have ever, ever, read.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, has also received a copy of “The Harbinger.”



“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy.”

End Times Rabbi: 'There Is A Great Shaking Coming'

In a rambling three-part broadcast of James Dobson’s “Family Talk” earlier this month, End Times author and messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn outlined America’s impending doom, which he blamed in part on growing support for marriage equality.

Cahn’s book, The Harbinger, contends that there is a wealth of evidence supporting the idea that the destruction of the United States is imminent. The “pattern of our collapse” has already been outlined in the Bible, he says, warning that if American culture continues to “move away from God,” we will suffer the same fate as ancient Israel.

His claim is anchored by two catastrophic events – the terror attacks of September 11 and the economic collapse of 2008 – which he believes are two “warnings” sent by God.

However, Cahn says the country crossed the line in 2012, “when America reached this majority for the redefinition of marriage and the president.” “I believe a great shaking is coming and I believe that God will seek to work through that shaking for revival, it’s either revival or judgment,” Cahn said. “We cannot go down this path and expect the smiles of heaven to remain on this land.”

Cahn drove the point home when he suggested that Americans didn’t learn the lesson of the September 11 attacks and continued to defy God on issues like abortion and same-sex marriage: “As a nation, from 9/11 till now, culturally, morally, we have rapidly gone against the ways of God.”

“We have destroyed marriage essentially, or we are well on the road toward that, and we’re continuing to kill babies,” Dobson said. “And make Christians pay for them,” Cahn replied.

“When you rewrite marriage, when you say we don’t care about what God said, that is defiance of God. This is all part of the big picture. The same thing happened in ancient Israel.”

'Washington - A Man Of Prayer': Highlights From The Religious Right Prayer Event Inside The US Capitol

Last night, members of Congress and Religious Right activists gathered in Statuary Hall inside the US Capitol for an annual event called "Washington: A Man of Prayer" at which they honored George Washington by collectively praying that God would protect and defend the United States of America.

Hosted by Mike Huckabee, the two hour event featured a variety of elected leaders, such as Rep. Tim Huelskamp and Rep. Steve King, who spoke together from the podium. Huelskamp asserted that God is at the heart of America because there is a small chapel located literally in the very center of the continent in Kansas, while King proclaimed that America was established by God.

"When He moved the Founding Fathers around like men on a chessboard," King said, "it was preordained. He guided them." Asserting that both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written with "divine guidance," King declared that, as such, Americans must be "very aware of how God brought forth this nation":

Among the other speakers at the event was Jonathan Cahn, author of "The Harbinger" which claims that 9/11 was God's judgment upon America and that rebuilding the Freedom Tower without properly humbling ourselves before God was an act of utter defiance.

During his remarks, Cahn made this same case, saying that America is calling good evil and evil good and passing "laws that war against the laws of the almighty" which is why this nation experienced the wrath of God at Ground Zero just as ancient Israel did:

Cahn was followed by Robert Jeffress, who asserted that while some issues such as taxes or immigration reform ought to be rightly debated by the government, other issues like abortion and gay marriage "are beyond debate, for the judge of the universe has already rendered his opinion":

Jim Garlow made a similar point during his remarks, saying that there is no way that this nation can expect God's blessings is abortion remains legal and gay marriage is accepted.

"Can we actually expect the blessing of God when we violate the ways of God?," Garlow asked. "He's God, we're not. We really need him!"

Right Wing Round-Up - 4/28/14

Cahn: Gay Marriage And Obama's Re-Election Are Signs Of The End Of America

Author Jonathan Cahn has become a star in Religious Right circles over his new book, The Harbinger, which basically claims that biblical prophecy regarding ancient Israel applies to the United States today. Cahn states that the September 11 attacks were a warning from God to repent and prophesied in the Bible. Instead of repenting, however, America is increasingly rebelling against God and Cahn predicts that such defiance will lead to the country’s ultimate destruction.

He appeared on Washington Watch with Tony Perkins yesterday to mark the anniversary of 9/11 and discuss a recent prayer gathering in the Capitol, where Michele Bachmann delivered a Cahn-like speech about how 9/11 and the Benghazi attack represented divine judgment. Cahn also spoke at the event.

After Perkins asked Cahn if the US is “responding to these warning signs of the Lord” appropriately, since Cahn of course knows exactly how God views America, Cahn responded that while America is in spiritual decline, the good news is that lots of people are buying his book!

The End Times author reiterated his claim that members of Congress are reading The Harbinger, including members he met at the Capitol prayer summit.

Unfortunately, America is still going downhill thanks to gay marriage and the re-election of Obama, so we may all be doomed anyway.

What I’ve experienced is there’s a lot of people—The Harbinger’s been spreading across the country, it’s even been reaching Capitol Hill. You and I were there on that night of prayer and several congressmen came up to me about it, so it’s been spreading on one hand. So we’re seeing prayers, we’re seeing repentance; we’re seeing much of that. But, on the other hand, as a nation since The Harbinger came out, America has continued its descent, its moral descent, rapidly. And this has affected the church. I believe, when I look back at it, it came out in 2012 and 2013, this is a real tipping point time where for the first time you have more Americans in favor of gay marriage, you have a president who was re-elected after declaring this, you have states coming forward, you have so many tipping points. I think there’s a reason why The Harbinger came out at that time because it’s a warning and it’s a wakeup call. What happens with a tipping point is things accelerate, unless there’s an intervention of God, things accelerate and I believe we’re really watching an acceleration; the Supreme Court just came out with its decision, I mean so much.

The Real Lesson of 9/11: Ban Same-Sex Marriage

End Times author Jonathan Cahn appeared alongside televangelist Joni Lamb on Daystar last month to promote his new book, The Harbinger, which uses biblical prophecy about ancient Israel to argue that God used the September 11 attacks and the 2008 economic crash to send “a wakeup call” to America.

After Cahn and Lamb explained that God “allowed” 9/11 to take place because the country’s sins “brought a crack into the foundation” and removed America’s “hedge of protection,” Lamb asked Cahn to “comment on all of the same-sex marriage that we’re just being inundated with across America.”

Cahn explained that if “we go this route” towards legalizing same-sex marriage, then it shows that Americans did not receive God’s message from 9/11 and are continuing to “depart from God.”

“We’re watching rapidly since 9/11, America depart from God and it’s becoming, just like Israel did, it became almost like a pagan nation, we America are forgetting our foundation and it’s becoming almost the same as a pagan nation.” Cahn said. “But to whom much is given, much is required; so if we go this route, God is warning and God is calling.”

Watch:

In his January message, Cahn said that the 2012 election, which saw President Obama re-elected and marriage equality affirmed at ballot box, will “accelerate” divine judgment on America… unless people begin reading Cahn’s book!

Dear Friend, Shalom and blessings! I pray all is well and that you are growing in His great peace and grace. Many believers sense we are living in a critical time. It's not just a sense.In the realm of physics, the tipping point is the point at which an object changes from a state of stable equilibrium into a different state. In sociology, the tipping point is the event of a previously rare phenomenon becoming rapidly and dramatically more common. In other usages, the tipping point is the critical moment in an evolving situation that leads to a new an irreversible reality.

This past election represented a tipping point concerning the future of America. The issue isn't political, but spiritual, concenting the future of America. It was not only what happened on a national level; the election for the first time, of a candidate who openly came against the biblical defination of marriage on top of an all endorsement of abortion. The ending of human life and biblical morality was enough to bring about the judgment and destruction of ancient Israel. But what was even more revealing was what happened on the state level.

Until 2012, the proposal to end the biblical definition of marriage had never won a popular vote. Every time the issue had been raised in an election, the biblical definition of marriage had been upheld, 32 out of 32 times. That all changed in early November 2012. And the change didn't happen in one state, but in four states at once. By popular vote, the biblical definition of marriage had either not been protected or over turned - a tipping point. In Minnesota, for the first time, voters failed to protect marriage as the union of man and woman. In Maine, Maryland and Washington, the majority of the electorate voted to end the biblical definition of marriage and inaugurate gay marriage - another first. It was not only a tipping point for America, but for each state as the numbers revealed: in Minnesota it was 51% who opposed the protection of marriage. In Maine, it was 53% vs. 47%. In Maryland, it was 52% vs. 48% and in Washington, it was 52% vs. 48%. For the first time in America's history the majority of Americans declared their opposition to the biblical definition of marriage.

In the wake of the election, articles came out with such quotes as "The GOP's Last Stand Against Gay Marriage," why evangelicals are in for an even more diminished role in Republican politics," "the American electorate as a whole is slowly but surely turning more secular," "its historic Tipping Point likely to influence other states and possibly even the Supreme Court."

It's hard not to agree that this was a huge turning point, a tipping point of a year. I don't believe it's an accident that it was in this same year, 2012, the year of this tipping point in America's departure from God, that The Harbinger was released. The word of warning continues to go forth, and is coming true.

Though recent developments stunned many believers, it should not have caught us by surprise. Without prayer, without revival, and without the intervention of God, the nation's course is clear. And once a tipping point has been reached, the momentum changes, and the speed of change accelerates. This month, let us all the more commit to pray, to shine as lights, and to live all the more against the direction of the day, and all the more all out for God.

Televangelist Jim Bakker invited messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn onto his program yesterday to discuss Cahn’s assertion that a major disaster will (or possibly won’t) strike America in September, which also happened to be a great opportunity for Bakker to hawk his massive buckets of survival food. “Something is happening,” Bakker said, “too many prophesies are coming together, too many warnings, too many signs in the heavens, too many dates, too much altogether.

Unsurprisingly, Cahn was in complete agreement with Beck's own prophetic vision that America has reached a "tipping point" and that God is giving us one last warning before judgment and destruction befall us.

Jonathan Cahn released a video today warning viewers to prepare for God's judgment for the nation's growing "apostasy" to fall upon America in September in the form of economic collapse, natural disaster, or a terrorist attack. Or maybe not ... as Cahn was careful to hedge his bets by also asserting that possibly nothing at all will happen because God "is sovereign and He doesn't have to work according to our schedule or understanding." But even if nothing happens, Cahn said, America still deserves God's judgment because of things like the legalization of... MORE >
