WND: Are you serious about ‘The Harbinger Man’ movie?


World News Daily’s (WND) is promoting an upcoming new DVD movie about the failed watchman Jonathan Cahn.  Here is how its latest article began with my comments:

October 2, 2015 pm

WASHINGTON – Were you moved by ““The Harbinger”?

Yes, I was moved to denounce its inaccuracies (see also Pat Robertson declared ‘Harbinger’ author as God’s prophet; is he right about 2015?). andThe September ‘harbinger’ convergence?).

WND continued with:

Did “The Mystery of the Shemitah” rock your world?

No, I repeatedly denounced it as false (see Dow Jones up in the ‘wake of the Shemitah’? and 6000 years up and Jesus to return in 2016? and Jonathan Cahn defends ‘The Mystery of the Shemitah,’ whereas COGwriter denounces it).

WND continued with:

Are you inspired by the writings and teachings of messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn?

No, while I find the word of God inspiring, Jonathan Cahn’s inaccuracies were deplorable and his inaccurate views should not be promoted.

WND continued with:

If so, here’s some big news for you: “The Harbinger Man,” a new bio-pic on Cahn’s miraculous and compelling life story is out Monday – exclusively from the WND Superstore.

“Millions of Americans have been inspired by Jonathan Cahn’s New York Times bestselling blockbusters, but few of them know the story behind the story,” says Joseph Farah, WND founder and producer of the new film. http://www.wnd.com/2015/10/jonathan-cahn-fan-new-harbinger-man-film-is-out/#RpseU2L7dX1iuGIU.99

I would state that millions of Protestants were moved by their emotions and not the Bible. While Jonathan Cahn has correctly pointed out that the USA is moving further away from God, Jonathan Cahn was wrong about the Shemitah, aspects of his ‘harbingers,’ blood moons, and other points.

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

As I already stated, it is true that 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), and I have also warned for decades (see also Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel)– 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 disaster, a global economic meltdown was to occur last month–not only did this not happen, I denounced it in advance as wrong and irrelevant As I mentioned before, I did not agree that the Hebrew civil year that ended last month even was a Shemitah year. Some specifics on calculations related to the ‘Shemitah year’ are in the article The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance.

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 promoted the idea of a global economic collapse with them and his claimed Shemitah. While there are problems in the global economy, global collapse per se was not tied to the past four blood moons or the end of his Shemitah.

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

His contentions about a temple must be rebuilt in this age are 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).

WND also called Jonathan Cahn a ‘watchman’ (see WND claims ‘Harbinger Man’ is a ‘watchman’), but he was most certainly not God’s watchman.  However, God does use watchmen (see Go, Set a Watchman).

While I do NOT believe that Jonathan Cahn is a true Christian, I do believe that he is contributing to the fulfillment of prophecies like the following:
1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. (2 Peter 2:1-3)

Jonathan Cahn needs to publicly repent before it is too late.

Truly a lot is happening, but Jonathan Cahn’s inaccurate predictions are not something to celebrate or promote.

Some items of related interest may include:

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.
Messianic Judaism Beliefs Differ from the Continuing Church of God Both groups keep the seventh-day Sabbath, but have important differences in doctrines and practices. Here is a link to a related sermon: Messianic Jewish Beliefs.
Just What Do You Mean — Repentance? Do you know what repentance is? Have you truly repented? Repented of what? Herbert W. Armstrong wrote this as a booklet on this important subject.
When You Sin: Do You Really Repent? This is an article by Charles F. Hunting. A related sermon is Confess to God and truly repent.
The Day of Atonement–Its Christian Significance The Jews call it Yom Kippur, Christians “The Day of Atonement.” Does it have any relevance for Christians today? What is the Jubilee? Is fasting healthy?
Why is a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required? Although people like Timothy LaHaye teach a third Jewish temple is required, who is ‘the temple of God” in the New Testament? Does the Bible require a rebuilt Jewish Temple? Here is a related item in the Spanish language ¿Por qué no se requiere un templo judío en Jerusalén? Here is a link to a sermon titled The Temple, Prophecy, and the Work.
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. Some are concerned that this is a prelude to martial law and imprisonment of American political dissidents by the Obama Administration. Is there anything to this? Will the USA be one day taken captive? If so, by whom? What does the Bible teach about conspiracies like Jade Helm?
When Will the Great Tribulation Begin? 2015, 2016, or 2017? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before the Great Tribulation in the “beginning of sorrows”?

Who are the 144,000? Here is a version of the article in the Spanish language: ¿Puede comenzar la Gran Tribulación en 2014 o 2015? ¿Es el Tiempo de los Gentiles? You can also see the English language sermon video: The Great Tribulation from the Mount of Olives.
Blood Moons and Prophecy There are four ‘blood moons’ expected in 2014 and 2015. Do they signal the Day of the Lord or the return of Jesus Christ? A related YouTube video is also available: Blood Moons, Prophecy, 2014, and 2015.
Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel Are the Americans, Canadians, English, Scottish, Welsh, Australians, Anglo-Saxon (non-Dutch) Southern Africans, and New Zealanders descendants of Joseph? Where are the lost ten-tribes of Israel? Who are the lost tribes of Israel? What will happen to Jerusalem and the Jews in Israel? Will God punish the U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, and other Anglo-Saxon nations? Why might God allow them to be punished first? Here is a link to the Spanish version of this article: Anglo-América & las Tribus Perdidas de Israel. Information is also in the YouTube sermons titled Where are the Ten Lost Tribes? Why does it matter? and British are the Covenant People. A short YouTube of prophetic interest may be Barack Obama and the State of the Apocalypse.
Will the Anglo-Saxon Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves? Will the lands of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand be divided? What about Jerusalem? What does Bible prophecy teach? Are there non-biblical prophecies that support this idea? Who will divide those lands? Who will end up with the lands and the people?
