‘Warning Signs of America’s Destruction – Jonathan Cahn’


Jonathan Cahn, a favorite ‘prophet’ of many American evangelicals is again spouting inaccuracies and has an upcoming movie with them:

Warning Signs of America’s Destruction – Jonathan Cahn

According to Cahn’s new upcoming movie called “The Harbingers of Things to Come,” we can turn it around, but it’s going to take repentance, prayer, faith and God to do it.  Cahn explains, “The harbinger is revealing the Biblical template of national judgment that begins with a strike on the land.  It happened in ancient Israel.  It’s a wake-up call, calling the nation back.  The nation is then given a span of time, years, to come back to God.  It’s mercy.  The same harbingers or warning signs that happened in the last days of Israel have now happened or have all appeared in America.  So, the warning is now for us.  Ancient Israel did not turn back.  It actually got worse, and that is exactly what happened.  In America, the strike came on 9/11, and all the harbingers, nine harbingers, all appeared starting with 9/11.  They were warning America of judgment.  We have followed the course of ancient Israel. . . . One of the things that ancient Israel did was lifted up its children on the alters of Baal and Moloch, and they killed their children.  Israel killed thousands, and we killed millions.  Therefore, this puts us in danger of judgment.”

So, how long do we have before God’s judgment starts?  Cahn says, “19 years before judgment.  When did it happen for America?  It was 9.11.2001.  Could it be the 19th year would be when great shakings would start coming on the land?  What’s the year?  It pinpoints the year 2020.  2020 is the year that the shakings come on.  The plague comes on.  Cities are burning.  We are still dealing with Covid.  We have been shaken and locked up, and all these things to this day. . . . In Jeramiah, he said a plague would come on the land in Israel.  We have a plague, and on the 19th year, the plague came.  What’s the name of this plague?  They call it Covid and then the number 19. …”

So, is the recent Supreme Court decision to limit abortion something that can help save America from Gods judgement? Cahn says, “It’s definitely a step in the right direction, but who knows? 05/07/22 https://usawatchdog.com/warning-signs-of-americas-destruction-jonathan-cahn/

Jonathan Cahn is a Messianic Jew who is known for promoting his well-selling books. But he is not known for being prophetically accurate.

Yet, World Net Daily, Pat Robertson, TBN, and others have improperly promoted him over the past eight or so years.

As far as Johnathan Cahn’s “who knows” response about America’s direction, God knows. The biblical reality is, without massive national repentance, the USA is doomed. Even if Roe v. Wade is overturned, there are still many states in the USA that will perform abortions.

Related to Jonathan Cahn’s comments, let me state that he has a history of asserting certain connections are biblical when they are not.

Furthermore consider, if his 19-year time of judgment was accurate, it would have ended in September 2020, which is 19 years after 9-11-2001. But there were more COVID deaths in 2021 than 2020, to mention one point. And as far as “shaking” happening after that, it was prior to September 2020 that there were the BLM/Antifa riots that burned buildings, etc. Hence his own logic is clearly flawed as he has contradicted himself.

As far as his history goes, in 2015, he said that would be the end of a so-called end of the Shemitah year. He says we are NOW in a Shemitah year. However, I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT WE ARE IN THE SHEMITAH YEAR, thus I believe any claims he or others make based upon that are irrelevant. I suspect that the last Shemitah year ran from sunset September 18, 2020 through sunset September 6, 2021. This coincided a bit with the COVID situation, as well as the debacle in Afghanistan.

Notice the following, that I posted on September 1, 2015 related to Jonathan Cahn:

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?).

Some specifics on calculations related to the ‘Shemitah year’ are in the article The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance.

Sometime back, I saw an interview on CBN by Pat Robertson of Jonathan Cahn that was first broadcast 02/05/2013.

The interview screen at one point showed something that resembled two Power Point slides, apparently from Jonathan Cahn or one of his books. The first slide had the following information:




So, the above is a prediction of a possible global collapse at the end of a year that is NOT the Shemitah year.

The second had the following information:




Now if by tribulation, Jonathan Cahn meant the Great Tribulation, then it is not at all possible to begin then. I have gone over this before in various articles and videos, and I have directly debunked the ‘Blood Moon’ hypotheses of the Great Tribulation beginning in 2014 or 2015 (see Blood Moons and Prophecy and/or watch Blood Moons, Prophecy, 2014, and 2015).

Near the end of the interview Pat Robertson said:

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). …

Truly a lot is happening in September 2015. But the end is not yet (cf. Matthew 24:6). (Thiel B. The September ‘harbinger’ convergence? COGwriter, September 1, 2015)

Some, however, attempted to claim Jonathan Cahn was right about the Shemitah. Notice something also from 2015:

Over the weekend I saw the following at World News Daily (WND):

Markets tumbling in Shemitah’s wake

September 19, 2015

Before rushing to write off the effects of the biblical Shemitah cycle on the nation’s economy, critics might want to step back and take a look at what has already happened and the direction things are heading.

August brought a gut-wrenching correction to the stock market, with billions of dollars lost in a 10 percent drop-off in value.

The first two weeks of September saw a mild upswing as Elul 29, the day of reckoning on the Hebrew calendar, came and went with nary a jolt being felt.

But as Shemitah researcher Jonathan Cahn has pointed out, the real damage of the Shemitah often occurs in its “wake,” in the Hebrew month of Tishrei. The U.S. market took another big hit Friday, falling 290 points to close at 16,385. http://www.wnd.com/2015/09/markets-tumbling-in-shemitahs-wake/#M70lTa8lfhfK93xU.99

Was there devastation in the ‘wake of the Shemitah?


First, this, in my view, was not a Shemitah year.

Second, as far as financial destruction to the stock market in the claimed Shemitah year by Jonathan Cahn, let me again state that the DOW Jones Industrial Average opening at the start of their claimed Shemitah year was 17,033.93 and the DOW Jones Industrial Average close today was 16,510.19. A reduction of about 3%.

Since the Dow Jones for the last trading day of this claimed Shemitah year (9/11/15) was 16,433.09, we have seen a slight rise so far in the ‘wake’ of the claimed Shemitah year.

While we could see drops the next week, I do not believe it is related to this claimed Shemitah (some specifics on calculations related to the ‘Shemitah year’ are in the article The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance).

Notice also something posted today at WND:


Learn the significance of the Shemitah cycle

Exclusive: Sid Roth interviews prophetic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has spent years studying the signs God revealed in the Bible so His people would not be caught unawares. The “harbingers” (warning signs) for ancient Israel are also happening here in America. http://www.wnd.com/2015/09/learn-the-significance-of-the-shemitah-cycle/#ZUA1jRTxvLDwUeJd.99

Jesus laid out a variety of signs which have not happened (cf. Matthew 24:9-20). Jesus said nothing about the ‘Shemitah’ being an important factor.

Here is, however, what Jesus taught would be the final signs:

5 And Jesus, answering them, began to say: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 6 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many. 7 But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. 8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows.

9 “But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you up to councils, and you will be beaten in the synagogues. You will be brought before rulers and kings for My sake, for a testimony to them. 10 And the gospel must first be preached to all the nations. 11 But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

14 “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 15 Let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house, nor enter to take anything out of his house. 16 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 17 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 18 And pray that your flight may not be in winter. 19 For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be.m (Mark 13:5-19)

While prophetically important matters occur regularly, the falsely identified ‘Shemitah year’ was NOT, of itself, something of biblical import.

Jonathan Cahn is a Messianic Jew and is NOT a true prophet of God. Jonathan Cahn hyped a period of time that did not need that type of prophetic hype.

He is probably best known for his book The Harbinger, which while it gets some items right, is partially-based on certain misunderstandings of prophecy that Jonathan Cahn has. (Thiel B. Dow Jones up in the ‘wake of the Shemitah’? COGwriter, September 15, 2015.

That all being said, Jonathan Cahn and others have pushed the idea that we are now in a Shemitah year (I disagree). Related to that the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put out the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


2022-2023 Shemitahs: Destruction/Reset?

Modern Jews claim that the period of time from sunset September 6, 2021 through sunset September 25, 2022 is a ‘Shemitah year.’ Some claim that this and the year that begins when this one ends (the claimed ‘jubilee’ is being called a ‘super shemitah”) and runs through 2023 may cause destruction or the Great Reset. Is this possible? Is Messianic Jew, Jonathan Cahn (of the Harbinger fame) a prophet of God as Pat Robertson has said or a false prophet? Was he right about the financial collapse of the USA in 2015? Are the Jews right about their Shemitah year being year 5982, or is 5991 closer? What about the beginning of sorrows? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

Here is a link to our video: 2022-2023 Shemitahs: Destruction/Reset?

We in the Continuing Church of God strive to always rely on God and the Bible for our prophetic positions: “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts” (2 Peter 1:19, KJV).

Messianics, like Jonathan Cahn, do not.
