WND claims ‘Harbinger Man’ is a ‘watchman’


World News Daily’s Joseph Farah is calling Jonathan Cahn a watchman:

A watchman among us
Exclusive: Joseph Farah offers readers preview of film about Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

“And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. …” Joel 2:28

Up until 2012, when Jonathan Cahn’s New York Times best-selling book “The Harbinger” came out, most people thought of me as a political guy. That’s what I wrote about in what may be the world’s only column written six days a week. Politics dominated my commentary.

Something changed dramatically in 2012…

The change in my direction was the direct result of my close encounter with Jonathan Cahn, an anointed teacher, rabbi, preacher, counselor and watchman. …

Here was Jonathan Cahn, a guy most Americans had never heard of, coming out of nowhere to deliver a powerful, controversial message just like the prophets of old. He did it with power and conviction. And he quickly emerged as one of the biggest and most courageous voices in American Christianity. Suddenly, he was being invited to speak in Washington and all over the country. There was clearly a hunger for this message.It was more than just a best-selling book. And his followup, “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” was more than just a best-selling second book. What Jonathan Cahn delivered to America was a completely new way of thinking about the direction of our country and how our problems were related to the nation’s turn from God. …

After hearing Jonathan’s core message, one I had heard and read a thousand times before, it suddenly had new meaning for me. What is that core message?

It has to do with what God said to Solomon at the dedication of the first Temple. God knew the children of Israel would stumble again, as they had so many times before. He provided a prescription in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”


There are two nations in the history of the world founded on promises from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – Israel and the United States of America.

If that prescription would work for Israel, it stands to reason it would work for America…I have produced a new movie about his life, called “The Harbinger Man.”

It is coming out in October. Our plan is for a limited theatrical release, to show it in churches and to release it simultaneously on DVD. http://www.wnd.com/2015/08/a-watchman-among-us/#wKkF96tyjUIU7jY1.99

Let me try to address some matters related to Jonathan Cahn and prophecy.

Yes, the USA is referred to as having God’s people in scripture.  And yes, short of national repentance, the USA is doomed.  Some Catholics, some Protestants, some secularists, and most in the COGs realize this.  The COG has cited 2 Chronicles 7:14 for decades and applied it to the USA (e.g. Armstrong HW. Modern Romans, 1975)  Jonathan Cahn is not unique in that way.

While Jonathan Cahn has some points right, he has several that are wrong.

Messianic Jew Jonathan Cahn is perhaps best known for his book The Harbinger.  He also popularized the so-called end of the Shemitah year.  According to him that is to happen next month.   I looked into this before and DO NOT BELIEVE THAT WE ARE IN THE SHEMITAH YEAR, thus I believe any claims based upon that are irrelevant. Some specifics on calculations related to the ‘Shemitah year’ are in the article The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance.

However, I will agree that the U.S. stock market sometimes faces crises near the time of the Fall holy days and stock markets may well face problems in September or October of 2015.  (More on September 2015 can be found in the video The ‘Harbinger’ and September 2015; more on October/November 2015 can be found in the video Alternative to the US Dollar in the Fall of 2015?).

Jonathan Cahn also was one who popularized the idea that the four blood moons of 2014 and 2015 had significant prophetic significance. Specifically related to at least one of them, Jonathan Cahn asked, “GLOBAL COLLAPSE?”  While there can always be problems, global collapse per se is not tied to the past three blood moons nor the next one.

We have had three of the four blood moons so far, and nothing as significant as Jonathan Cahn and certain others implied happened on those dates (see Blood Moons and Prophecy and/or watch Blood Moons, Prophecy, 2014, and 2015).

Earlier this year, Jonathan Cahn made a claim about the Temple:

“We know that end-time prophecy cannot be fulfilled without the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem,” Cahn, a Messianic Jewish rabbi in New Jersey, told WND. http://www.wnd.com/2015/03/holy-altar-constructed-for-third-jewish-temple/#Gs1xLRbW86qKo2Rk.99

Jonathan Cahn’s “The Harbinger” and his other book “The Mystery of the Shemitah” are flawed (here is a link with some information related to him: Pat Robertson declared ‘Harbinger’ author as God’s prophet; is he right about 2015?). Also, his contentions about a temple must be rebuilt in this age are also biblically wrong (see Why is a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required?).

In an interview Pat Robertson said of Jonathan Cahn:

God…has ordained this young man as His prophet…Jonathan…

Is Jonathan Cahn God’s prophet as Pat Robertson stated?

No, he is not.

Jonathan Cahn does not meet the New Testament criteria, plus his misunderstanding of various matters disqualifies him (to learn more about prophets, please see the article How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God and/or watch the video also titled How to determine if someone is a true prophet of God).

While the Bible tells of the moon turning to blood, this is an event that happens years AFTER the start of the Great Tribulation, which cannot possibly start before 2019 (and more likely later).  Jonathan Cahn’s ideas about the Shemitah and Temple are also wrong.  Blood moons were not a sign that the Great Tribulation could begin in 2014 or 2015. There are simply too many additional biblically-required signs that Jesus listed in Matthew 24 that cannot occur between now and then.

But it is true that there is an expected ‘blood moon’ on September 28, 2015. But that is not going to be global collapse–even if there are stock market problems in parts of the world.

As far as a watchman goes, Jonathan Cahn has some points that are wrong, that should make all wary of following him.  But God does use watchmen (see Go, Set a Watchman).

Truly a lot is happening, and some prophecy watchers see some of it, but the end is not yet (cf. Matthew 24:6).

The ‘Harbinger’ and September 2015 Are you aware of many events that are to happen in 2015? These expected events include the end of military operation Jade Helm, a claimed end to a Shemitah year by Jonathan Cahn, Pope Francis speaking before US Congress, Pope Francis speaking before the United Nations, a planned UN proposal to recognize the State of Palestine, and the fourth of four ‘blood moons’ of 2014 & 2015.

Jade Helm, Captivity, and Prophecy Jade Helm 15 is scheduled by the US Army Special Operations Command to be held from July 15 – September 15, 2015.
