Jonathan Cahn on His Books

>>The best-selling book called
“The Harbinger” proved to be very popular with the general
public, but among Bible prophecy experts, it caused a
storm of controversy. The author, Jonathan Cahn, has now
published a second book called “The Mystery of the Shemitah”
which is also proving to be controversial. To hear what
the controversy is all about and to hear Jonathan Cahn’s
response to it, stay tuned.>>[music]>>Lamb and Lion
Ministries presents Christ in Prophecy, a program that
focuses on the fundamentals of Bible prophecy, showing how
current events in the news relate to Biblical predictions
of end time events and the soon return of Jesus. Now,
here’s your host, Dr. David Reagan.>>Greetings in the
name of Jesus, our Blessed Hope and welcome to Christ in
Prophecy. My colleague, Nathan Jones, and I are delighted to
have back with us as our special guest for the second
week, Jonathan Cahn, who is the author of the best-selling
book, “The Harbinger”. If you missed our program last week
when we discussed with Jonathan the ominous message
for America that God has given him, you can find the program
on our website at Welcome back to
our program, Jonathan.>>Great to be here.>>Glad to have
you.>>Great to have you back on.>>Great to be here.>>Now,
Jonathan is the spiritual leader of the Beth Israel
Worship Center in Wayne, New Jersey. In one of our issues
this is a 2013 “Lamplighter Magazine” we featured Jonathan
here on the cover, and Dr. Reagan labeled him as one of
the prophetic voices God has anointed to warn our nation of
impending judgment. And as always has been the case
anyone who historically speaks out in prophetic manner,
calling people to repentance, Jonathan has been severely
attacked for doing so. Now, Jonathan if you could let’s
talk first about your first book “The Harbinger” maybe you
could summarize the main point and then give us probably the
number one criticism of it.>>OK, yeah. “The Harbinger” is
an ancient mystery from the Bible in the template of
judgment that God gave to ancient Israel. When Israel
was in its last days, the Northern Kingdom, there were
nine harbingers identified that appeared in the land; and
they reject them and they are destroyed. Well the eerie
thing, or the stunning thing, or the scary thing, those same
harbingers are now reappearing to America. And some of them
have appeared in New York City, some have appeared in
Washington but they are happening with precision. It
is so precise that it actually gives the words that American
leaders speak before they say them. It gives exact dates
when things happen. I mean down to the seconds. So it is
happening and it is affecting all of us, it has affected.
And since the book came out it has not stopped it has
continued, the harbingers have continued to manifest as
America has continued on a course of danger as it heads
away from God. So we are heading to judgment and that’s
what it is.>>Now, the whole book revolves around one
particular verse right, Isaiah 9:10 which reads, “The bricks
have fallen but we will rebuild with cut stones. The
sycamores have been cut down but we will replace them with
cedars. Now that verse actually expresses an
attitude, right?>>Yes. That was–Isaiah records what the
people said in Israel when they got their first warning
strike which was–the context is the Assyrians had come in,
God allowed it years before the destruction as a warning
for the nation to wake up. But instead of saying, “Hey, yeah,
we are going to return to God.” They make that
statement, saying even though the bricks fell we are coming
back stronger. Even though the trees have been cut down we
are going to bloom and blossom without God. So, they are
giving defiance so Isaiah is recording this and then God
says because of this, then the next part is the destruction
of the nation. So, because they defied all the warnings
this happens to them. In that verse are explicitly or
implicitly the nine harbinger of judgment; I mean the
sycamore is one, the stone is another, the utterance is
another, and every single one of them has manifested in
America.>>And we had people, leaders in America who
actually quoted this verse.>>It’s amazing because this
verse is a verse of judgment pronouncing judgment on a
nation, and yet–and listen when this started Dave, you
know the Lord led me right to that Scripture. But I didn’t
know that this had been said at that moment. I didn’t know
one day I was on the computer and I’m typing in Isaiah
9:10–>>Boom there it is.>>It was the Annals of
Congress, I had no idea. So the very response after 9/11
Tom Daschle gets up you know the Senate Majority Leader
gives America’s response the day after 9/11 and out of his
mouth he says, “But we have this word,” and out of his
mouth he pronounces Isaiah 9:10 without knowing what it
means–>>Poor choice.>>I mean out of all– I means it’s
obscure. And he’s talking about the harbingers and they
are actually manifesting. He says it and then nobody
knows–you have the entire government hearing this and
nobody knows what it means. And yet it is going to come
true. He says at the end this is what America will do and
they have all manifested.>>Ok, now I would say that the
number one, now you can correct me on this, but I
would say the number one criticism of “The Harbinger”
that I’ve heard is people saying, “Well that was a
prophecy that God gave to Israel and it has absolutely
nothing to do with the United States of America. First of
all it’s not a prophecy.>>Yes, that’s right.>>It’s
their response.>>That’s right. It is the prophetic
word of what happened. Yeah.>>If we can’t apply verses to
us.>>Yeah, then forget all preaching.>>Well we might as
well forget the Bible because the book of Colossians was
written to the church at Colossae, it doesn’t apply to
us.>>Absolutely.>>Philippians doesn’t apply to
us.>>Nothing does. Yeah. Nothing does unless it says
America, you know. So absolutely I mean then you
have–>>This is a spiritual principle.>>Yeah you have to
cut down all prophecy, yeah. So the thing is “The
Harbinger” never says this was a prophecy about America. What
it says is exactly what you said this was template, this
is what God did. God is consistent. God is able. First
of all God when He acts He judges, He warns and He will
do it in a biblical way as He does it. Not only that He is
also able to use the Scripture, or use a template
to speak to a nation. Where you can say, “Well, wow this
is all there and it identifying where we are right
now as a nation.”>>Yeah.>>Well, if we could just back
up a little bit. I was confused at first because the
title harbinger, what is a harbinger?>>I didn’t realize
that.>>Yeah.>>A lot of people don’t know. Well get to
the Shemitah and nobody knows.>>How do you pronounce that?
>>Yeah, the harbinger, harbinger means a foreshadow
or a sign of something to come it could be good; but it
usually it is an ominous warning of judgment.>>Ok. And
that’s what we’re seeing through Israel as a model for
any nation including the United States.>>It’s got to,
this was written for our instruction. And the eerie
thing is it is not only like a general principle God is
sovereign over history. I mean listen when you talk about how
do the leaders say that? He wasn’t the only leader. Then
three years later John Edwards on the anniversary of 9/11
says the same thing and he builds his entire speech
around Isaiah 9:10. So it keeps coming up. So, I believe
the Lord is–I mean how does He warn a nation? He uses His
Word.>>And it is a statement of arrogance and pride.
>>Defiance and all that, yes.>>Defiance, we don’t care what
you’ve done here we are going to rebuild and we are–>>And
that is exactly it. And that is exactly what America did
and the leaders did. In fact one of them there it says, “We
will rebuild with this stone.” This is in Hebrew it is called
the gazit stone. Well after 9/11 they do the same thing
they take this stone and they put it at Ground Zero and they
have a ceremony around the stone. And the Governor of New
York says, “We are doing this in the spirit of defiance.” He
literally says it. So the point is if we were there
Dave, if we were there on Capitol Hill and we saw this,
I mean when it happened I didn’t realize it you know
when Daschle said that. But the thing is that if we were
there we would say, wait a minute you know this is a bad
thing there’s not going to be this revival at that point;
and there wasn’t. And it was kind of a foreshadow that
America would grow much further away from God.>>Ok,
now what are some other major attacks on you concerning this
book?>>Ok, let me just put it into context, it is generally
in a small group of people.>>Yes, I know.>>But they
speak loud. Most has not, most have held it. But yeah.>>I
refer to them as the junkyard dogs of Christianity and that
they are just snarling and growling and always looking
for someone to attack.>>Well, yeah, well, there I was and
they came. I came into the junkyard.>>And boy did they
attack.>>I came into the junkyard and I didn’t realize
it said beware of the dogs. Another one was–the first one
was actually Replacement Theology; he’s preaching that
God is finished with Israel classic replacement. He’s
replacing Israel. Well you know listen–>>Are you going
to replace yourself?>>Yeah, I’m Jewish. I’m a Jew how can
I? I literally have to replace myself with myself because I’m
saved. So with replacement. I can’t do that. I’m totally
pro-Israel. The name of the ministry is Beth Israel. I
mean that is crazy. They mistook what–again most
people by the way most of these people did not even read
the book.>>And they accused you of saying that America has
a covenant with God.>>That’s the number one that when
people write in and they reject your book they say that
America is under the same covenant relationship as
Israel, that’s not true.>>I never said that.>>But you’re
book never says that.>>It never says that. And first of
all by the way you know you need that, no you don’t that
doesn’t even have to part of it God can judge any nation
and use His usual template.>>That’s right.>>But the fact
is that what I bring up is that especially is pertinent
to America that America was founded after the pattern of
Israel; it’s there. The Puritans covenanted with God
it doesn’t mean that you know, we don’t know what God did.
But did He honor it? It seems like He did.>>Yes.>>But
that’s not the same as the covenant made with Israel when
God made it.>>That’s right.>>There is only one nation
that has that covenant. But there is something about
America that is very special that is dedicated to God. And
there were principles that are in effect, so that’s it. So
you don’t need–you know there is nothing saying that and you
know that’s it.>>Yeah, I never thought you said that we
were in a covenant relationship.>>No, no and yet
God can honor prayers. But even without you don’t need
that the fact is He’s doing it. And then on top of that, I
mean I could throw out the Mormon, he’s a Mormon.>>Yeah,
they accused you of being a Mason.>>Mason, yeah.>>Why?
Why? I mean I don’t understand that.>>I shared I was
involved with Masonry once I was in the Jackie Mason Show.
So that was it but then I repented of it, so no more
Jackie Mason. So, another one was Free Masonry, Mormonism,
Kabbalah, I mean you name it it’s there.>>Yeah, you read
the Kabbalah one a lot.>>And because of–>>Respond to that
because that is a major argument that you’re involved
in the Kabbalah and all this is Kabbalah and so forth.
>>Explain what Kabbalah is before you answer that.
>>Yeah, this is like Joseph McCarthy. Basically Kabbalah
is Jewish mystical writings. And if anybody comes up to me
I say, no I wouldn’t read it unless you are doing research
or using for apologetics. I did a series once on what the
rabbi said about the Messiah at Beth Israel and it is
classic apologetics. The rabbi’s actually in their
writings they say that the Messiah would die for our
sins. Well that is great to use for Jewish people.
>>That’s right.>>So they say because he does that he is
saying therefore he’s endorsing all this. Listen if
you do that I don’t care what they say Paul went to Mars
Hill.>>Yes.>>He used pagan hymns to Zeus on Mars Hill to
speak to the pagans of the Gospel. If he was alive today
and they were there he would be crucified for being a
Jupiter a Zeus worshipper. I mean crazy. All crazy. It has
nothing to do with harmony.>>What about people that write
in and say that you are word of faith prosperity preacher.
That if we repent then all the financial blessings will flow
back into the United States again.>>Yeah, that’s me.>>I
loved your response to that when you said your photograph
was made at Sears.>>Sears budget photos, budget photos,
budget photos. Also most of my clothes were Salvation Army
until my wife forced me to move up. So we made a deal I
went to Sears, and Walmart. I mean that’s crazy. I mean I am
against those. You know that’s a half Gospel.>>It just shows
you how desperate people are to attack.>>Yeah. Well a lot
of ministries live on that. And the other thing is that
they project with whatever they are going against on
whatever they are going to attack. I mean that has
nothing to do with “The Harbinger”. And I hate
prosperity the harbinger, saying God warning of judgment
that’s real prosperity. I mean you know?>>That is what
really bothers me is that when people question your heart.
And we get this at the ministry all the time, “Well
you’re all in it just to sell books.” No we’re not it’s
about the message to change people’s lives. Now you wrote
this book to get a nation to repent, right?>>Yeah, the
book is a call to repentance. And I wasn’t looking for it. I
mean we live across the river from Ground Zero. Matter of
fact my wife was supposed to be at the towers at the
moment. At the last moment her plans were changed.>>Really?
>>And so I am watching that and I’m praying. Then I
started being led to that Isaiah 9:10. I was standing at
Ground Zero and I saw the tree and something said, there’s
something there. So I was led like one step, I wasn’t
looking for it. I was led one step to the next, to the next,
to the next, to the next and it kept on getting bigger, and
bigger and bigger. I wasn’t going to do any book. I shared
it with the congregation and everyone was blown away and
said this has got to go to the nation. I didn’t do anything.
Then finally I was led to write a book and you know this
thing wrote itself, it happened rapid fire and then
it has always been spreading by itself. I mean it just
goes, and goes, and goes. I don’t take any credit for “The
Harbinger”. I mean if I tried to reproduce how I could not
do it. The point is it’s gone forth. God warns. He’ll do it
through enemies. He’ll do it through a donkey. He’ll do it
through anyone. And it has gone forth. So that is exactly
that, I believe God is warning America. That’s what He does.
He has a heart because He wants to save. We are in
danger of judgment and it’s happening precisely.>>Well
one thing that I’ve appreciated is the fact that
you have not responded to these people in the kind of
manner in which they have attacked you. That you’ve
dealt with it with humor and mainly have ignored it and
moved on your way.>>You have to.>>You have a good friend
who has written a book in defense of this.>>Oh, yeah,
you have to.>>But you can’t get involved in all of this.
>>You can’t and when I first went I went to the publisher
and I said, “What do we do? You know they won’t listen.”
They said, “What are you kidding? This is good.” Well
I’m not saying it’s good. But the point is nothing has
stopped, nothing has stopped, slowed the going forth of this
warning. And God keeps opening the doors. You know several
presidential candidates are reading “The Harbinger” are
lifting it up, several of them. It doesn’t stop anything
of God’s. So you can’t–you know this is true, listen with
any believer, you can’t get lost if you’re serving God.
You just move forward and keep your eyes on God and do not
get lost in all the junk. You know just keep on moving
forward and God will keep blessing.>>Well I know when
we began this ministry I knew that teaching Bible prophecy
was going to be very controversial.>>Yeah.>>And
the moment I started writing and speaking I was getting
constantly, I want to debate you, I want to do this, I want
to do that. And I just didn’t have time for that. And
further more I just said, “Lord you’ve called me to this
I am going to let you defend me. I’m not going to spend
time defending myself.”>>Yeah, yeah. And it’s not
that we don’t ever answer. The point is you can’t get lost in
it. You know you’ve got to look ahead, you can’t look
back. You do God’s thing and God will lift you up and God
will take care of it. And He does. He does.>>Well I just
hope and pray that this message that you are putting
out here will be one that will continue to spread because
this nation desperately needs to hear it. Desperately. Most
people believe that America is just not subject to the
discipline of God.>>Just like ancient Israel.>>Yeah. And
that is exactly what they said and we are moving forward. And
you know as we talk–listen one thing we are watching for
instance the redefinition of marriage sweep, just in the
last few days here. But on top of it, and one of the things I
said, one of the thing that is in “The Harbinger,” and the
“Shemitah” and one of the things I’ve said is that if
America doesn’t turn back one of the first things we can
expect to see is the crown, America’s crown as head of
nations to be removed. Just yesterday morning it came out,
this is historic, China has surpassed America as the
strongest economic power on earth.>>That’s right.>>This
is from 1870, we have been the strongest economic power after
we surpassed the British Empire 1871 this is a
momentous thing; but it’s a part prophecy. I mean, and you
know people say well look at prophecy you don’t see America
as the head. Well “The Harbinger” and “The Shemitah,”
is kind of like filling in the middle of that, but that is
what’s happening. So it is happening as we turn from God
this is happening, it’s coming.>>Well you mentioned
“The Shemitah” that’s a new book that you have just come
out with.>>Yes.>>So, we’ll take a little pause here and
come back and ask you to tell us what in the world is a
Shemitah? And what is the thesis of your book?>>[music]>>Welcome back to Christ in Prophecy and our interview
with Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Rabbi from New
Jersey who has been anointed to proclaim a message of
warning our nation. Now, Jonathan, let’s turn to your
second book called, “The Mystery of the Shemitah”
Shemitah, right. Could you define what Shemitah means?
>>Shemitah was the Sabbath year. Every seven years God
said you shall rest, Sabbath year. There is no buying, no
selling of the fruits of the land, no reaping, none of
that. The whole land would rest. And on the last day of
the Shemitah there was a special day called in Hebrew
Elul 29 that was the 29th day of the month of Elul. On that
day something really extraordinary happened; all
debts are wiped out, all credits wiped out, the
financial realm is wiped clean every seven years.>>Wow.
>>This was to be a blessing. But the thing is that as
Israel turned away from God the Shemitah comes back at
them not as a blessing but as a sign of judgment on a nation
that has known God, driven God away and now comes back
strikes their sustenance, their economics, their
financial realm. And it comes back in 586 BC. Remember when
the judgment came on Israel Babylon comes in, they are
taken out into captivity for 70 years. And they say, why 70
years? God says because the land will now rest for 70
years for the 70 Sabbaths, or the Shemitahs that they didn’t
observe. It says that even in the Torah it says that this
will come about as a sign of judgment on you. So, it
actually becomes a sign of judgment now. And that’s where
we get into, that’s where the link is with the harbinger.
>>And that’s stretches back to Leviticus 25:5, “You are not
to reap what grows by itself from your crop, or harvest the
grapes of your intended vines. It must be a year of complete
rest for the land.” So every seven years then the Jews
weren’t supposed to farm. They were supposed to forgive all
debt. How did they live?>>Well God said, “I will bless
you on the sixth year. I will bless you with extra if you do
this.” In fact in Israel today they are actually observing
it.>>Do they?>>I mean sometimes they have loopholes.
>>They have big loopholes like hiring Arabs to run their
land.>>Yeah, or they actually sell their land to non-Jews
and then they can work it and then they buy it back at the
end. I mean it’s typical. But actually they have said those
who have actually done it, observed it they have
testimonies that they were blessed. But the point is
yeah. So that’s the beginning of it, but it’s not– the
Shemitah some people have confused that. I am not saying
America is to do this anymore then with the harbinger, or
that it is about the law of the Shemitah. It is the
Shemitah as a prophetic sign.>>Ok, well let’s get into that
for a moment. One of the criticisms that has already
been made of the book is how in the world can you take a
law that God gave to the Jewish nation and apply it to
Gentile nations?>>Right exactly. Well first of all
again starting with the other things we spoke about “The
Harbinger” everything in the Bible is for us as well. It
doesn’t mean we are under something. But there is
meaning to it. Secondly, it’s not the Shemitah as a
observing it, I never said that. I’ve seen some things
that says Jonathan said that. Absolutely not. Not at all. It
is the Shemitah as a prophetic sign. When the Shemitah came
as a prophetic sign of judgment on Israel when they
were 70 years, God says it exactly this is the timing of
the Sabbath of the land that they didn’t observe, now the
land is going to rest. Well that involved Babylon. The
rise of Babylon had to happen according to that timing. They
had to fall and Persia had to rise up so that the 70 years
would be the 70 years and then they could go back to the
land, so it affects, so even world history is affected.
>>Yeah, but I don’t see how that applies to Gentile
nations. I mean were not supposed to let the land rest.
We are not commanded to let the land rest so why in the
world would this apply to us?>>It’s not about–ok I am not
telling people to observe the Shemitah that’s not what this
is about.>>Alright.>>It’s saying that God can use, just
as He used the Shemitah as a sign of judgment on Israel a
nation that had turned away from God. The message of the
Shemitah is that all your blessings come from God. If
you go away from God that therefore the blessings will
be removed. Now the point is and same with the harbinger is
that God can use a sign from the Bible to speak. Now let me
give you an example with this. One of the things is that you
have the day Elul 29, that is the day when all debts and
credit is wiped out. Well here you have America and we talk
about the warning before that if America turns away from God
its blessings will be removed. Well, you have on 2001 you
have 9/11, on several days later you have the greatest
collapse of the financial realm Wall Street it
collapses. Wall Street collapses on September 17th
the greatest collapse. When did that take place? It
happens on the day appointed in the Bible, Elul 29 that
says the day of wiping away financial accounts, wiping
away the financial realm happens on the exact day down
to the hour. Then not just the day, not just Elul 29 once a
year, it is the once in seven year time, exactly it is one
day and seven years. Then fast forward to 2008 we just had
the great recession you have the greatest collapse happens
on September 29th that is the greatest collapse to this day,
it surpassed the one in 2001. It happens on September 29th,
when? On the exact same day appointed in the Bible as the
day of Elul 29, happens exactly according to the
mystery of the Shemitah it happens exactly seven years
apart the two greatest crashes down to the day, down to the
minute, down to the second the two greatest crashes on the
same day that happens to be that. On top of that, Dave, on
top of that and this is after and this begins in the
harbinger. When I looked there is a pattern that goes beyond
that that when you look at the greatest collapses in Wall
Street history all of them, last 40 years every one of the
greatest long term collapses happens clustered around the
year of the Shemitah. Every single one of them. They are
seven years apart even from the one before, the one after,
you can go down the list. It is a continual pattern. In
fact Wall Street, people on Wall Street have always been
mystified why do these greatest crashes generally
happen around autumn, if you know. Well they all cluster,
the majority of the greatest day crashes cluster around the
Hebrew month of Tishrei that is September/October. That’s
the very time in the Bible that is linked to the Shemitah
when God says this happens.>>Well one of the problems I
have with this as you well know, the Jewish calendar is a
mess. It’s a mess. I mean it’s lacking about 250 years that
should be in there because the sages short termed the Persian
rule. They put it down for about 52 years and it was over
200 years so the whole calendar is off. They don’t
know when the Jubilee years are. How do they know when the
Shemitahs are?>>Well it is interesting because Jubilee is
part of this thing too.>>You never explained that in your
book.>>Yeah.>>As to how they determine that these years are
the Shemitahs?>>Well first of all, the first thing is that
we know that the Shemitahs were observed, the Jubilees
were not–there is a gap as far as their observance in the
time of the Messiah, so it is very hard to figure out
anything with the Jubilee. But there is a mystery here, but
the other thing is that with the Shemitahs though they were
observed in the time of Messiah, they were observed,
they are recorded by Josephus, they are recorded in the
rabbinical writings, they are recorded. And simply so what
they did was simply taking the observances which were there
in the times in Bible times they continue out and they
fall on these exact times.>>Well I would argue this. I
would say that the Shemitahs were nonobservant during the
years, the 1,800 years that the Jews were out of the land.
>>Absolutely.>>That they only apply to the Jews being in the
land. The Jews repossessed the land in 1948 that’s when the
Shemitah count should begin, 1948, that’s when the
possessed the land Jonathan.>>First off let me say
something–>>That would make it 2010 and 2017.>>So the
first one would be ’54-’55.>>Well actually that’s,
actually that’s when you have nationhood, but the fact is
that as soon as they started returning in the 19th Century
that is when they started farming the land.>>Nah, they
didn’t possess it.>>Listen, ok in any case that is when
they went to the rabbis and said, “How do we do this?”
That’s when they started observing.>>Well I just think
this is very arbitrary, Jonathan.>>Well it is
actually very specific. Nobody can come up with it. Matter of
fact all around the world they are observing it at this time.
From the time of the First Temple and the fact is, and
here is the thing Dave the fact is regardless of that
here are the times, it is universal I mean as far as
when it is done here. It happens on the sign.
Regardless of what one thinks go back the fact is on these
exact times all these things happen. And if you look again
Wall Street, look back it is happening according to it.
It’s like saying even with the Sabbath God wove the Sabbath
into–>>Well, I think the saving grace of your book is
right at the end when you say, “Well looking back we have to
admit that things do not always happen on the
Shemitah.”>>Oh, no, from the–here’s another
interesting thing about this–>>Otherwise I’d–>>It’s ok.
Well listen we will see what happens. But here’s the thing,
Dave, the other thing is this I’ve had economists come to
me. I’ve had financial guys from Wall Street because we
are not far from there come to me and say, “You know what,
this is there.” They had no idea about the Shemitah. But
after I wrote the book all these– they have the seven
year cycle and guess what the seven year cycle comes on each
time the years that they identify without realizing it
they don’t know about the rabbis, they’re not looking at
the calendar. They are all identifying the seven years
are happening the crashes on the time of the Shemitah. Plus
another economist came to me and said, “You know what?”
They showed me the debt cycle, and the fact is when the debt
cycle is the highest and remember this is linked to
debt in the Bible that’s when this phenomenon is the
strongest. And when the debt is the lowest in a cycle
that’s when it is weaker. But the fact is right now we have
the most astronomical debt on earth. So let me just say
something here it’s not about observing it and I’m not
interested in what people observe. People write to me,
how should observe? It’s not about that. It’s about that
God is able to use anything in His Word as a warning, as a
sign to say this is My hand. You know when you mentioned
before you said that crash, and you noticed wait a minute
777, well yeah. But you know what Dave, you know that was
also the day of the seventh year in the Bible. That was
the exact day. And not only that how much was wiped out?
Seven percent was wiped out. How much the other time? Seven
percent. On the exact day down to the minute, Dave. So, the
fact is you say God puts His fingerprints. Is it something
about the seven? No it’s His fingerprints saying that I’m
warning you. The ultimate message of the Shemitah is our
blessings come from God. If the nation ever turns away
from God which it is doing those blessings will be
removed. That is what happened to Israel. And that is
happening now.>>And that is a good message.>>[music]>>Welcome back to Christ in Prophecy and our interview
with Jonathan Cahn the author of “The Harbinger” and his
other book called, “The Mystery of the Shemitah.”
Jonathan how can people get in touch with you if they want to
ask a question?>>They can go to that’s
our outreach ministry it has all the teachings that this
comes from so is probably
good. And they can get “The Harbinger” and “The Shemitah”
everywhere in the universe from Walmart to Amazon it’s
everywhere.>>Ok.>>Well Jonathan, I just praise God
for the mighty way in which He is using you to speak out to
this nation and call it to repentance. And I just pray
that people will hear the message and that they will
come to repentance. Well folks that is our program for this
week I hope it has been a blessing to you and I hope you
will be back with us next week the Lord willing. Until then
this is Dave Reagan speaking for myself and for my
colleague Nathan Jones saying, look up, be watchful for our
redemption is drawing near.”>>[Music]>>For more detailed
information about America in prophecy, order a copy of Dr.
Reagan’s book, “America the Beautiful?”. It has been very

Reagan, who was formerly a professor of international
relations, outlines all the spiritual principles that
govern God’s relationship with the nations of the world, and
presents ancient Israel as the prophetic type of modern day
America. This book can be yours for a gift of $15 or

  • All the Jews NEVER left the land sir…  Even in the time when Israel was driven out in the Diaspora there has always been a presence of Jews in the land, in fact in those days the majority of inhabitants in Jerusalem were Jews…and they also occupied mostly the land central and north of Jerusalem…

    They have always observed the Law of the Land, because remember this Land of Israel ALWAYS belonged to the Lord YHWH…and the Jewish People have always belonged to the Lord YHWH…therefore those who remained behind remained connected in this way through the Laws of the Lord YHWH.   

    Thank you for this wonderful presentation with Rabbi Jonathan Cahn  (you may or may not know that he is also a "Cohen" from the Lineage of Aaron, and therefore the Word of YAH which went forth through him, went through the 'Priestly Caste' of Ancient Israel…   😀

  • Dr. Reagan does not believe some of Rabbi Jonathan's judgment regarding the Jewish calender. Weeks ago when I first heard about the Shemitah, my eyes glazed over a little, thinking that this doesn't apply to the New Testament, but I'm beginning to think that both the Shemitah and his book The Harbinger are true. I could be wrong. 

  • Paul says that gentile believers are grafted into Israel.  He also says that gentiles are part of the commonwealth of Israel or that gentiles (Ephesians 2) are citizens of Israel.  Our citizenship as Americans must be as that of those of Ephesus.  Therefore, it seems as those these principles could apply here . . . unless we don't want to be part of Israel. It is easy to forget what the sign on Jesus' cross said . . . Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews.  America (believers) is either part of the commonwealth or not.  We get to choose.  The true church is Israel or as Paul said the Israel of God (Gal 6).  The birth of the Israel of God was in Jerusalem at Shavout (Pentecost).  We say the church was born then but the Israel of God was "born" then.  3000 Hebrews died on the first Shavout (Pentecost) when the 10 commandments  were given and 3000 were added again on the Shavout (Pentecost) in Acts 2.  There is only the Israel of God.  The church as separate from this Israel of God is a creation of Satan through the Orthodox Catholic communities, especially Rome.  Read John 10:16 and look up for the redemption of the Israel of God draws nigh . . . Remember also, the letter to the church at Ephesus.  It was in danger of losing it's lampstand because it failed to obey the greatest (first) commandment, Deuteronomy 6:5 etc, "To love Yahweh or Jehovah" if you prefer.  How do American churches love Yah?  Yah is the god of all flesh, Jeremiah 32:27 not just the Hebrews or Jews.

  • The old man is ignorant.. Shemitah book is absolutely amazing..but not all people can understand..same like the Pharisees in the first coming

  • Praise be to the Lord who through the Jews as time-keepers has preserved the Lord's times and dates for the latter generations. Thank you Abba!!!

  • Well, I admit it I was wrong. All of these insights by the Hebrew Roots movement has been a waste of time. We should have been studying the "Olivet Discourse" instead of all this prognosticating and stargazing. I for one can see that I was easily swayed. But frankly, I was new to the Hebrew Roots movement, or Messianic Judaism, or whatever you wish to call it. It's amazing how quickly we all follow the shiny new thing. Blood moons, red heifers, Sabbaths, etc. I for one know I owe Dr. Reagan an apology for doubting him. He loves the Lord, and I admire him for putting up with Jonathan Cahn's nonsense for as long as he did.

  • I really love Johnathan Cahn, he is a holy man of God and I ask we all pray for Elohim's blessings of protection and continuously boldness in Elohim's truth, in Yehosua's name.amen
