Jonathan Cahn: “The Harbinger Making Waves on Capitol Hill”


Believe this is the third post on the topic of Jonathan Cahn and his book The Harbinger, but I’m playing ‘catch-up’ folks, not having heard of either the man nor book until a few days ago.

From Brian Tashman

Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has become a superstar among televangelists and conservative commentators like Glenn Beck and Joseph Farah thanks to his book, The Harbinger. According to Cahn, the country’s presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama are part of a biblical prophecy about America’s rise and fall. He argues that Obama and other leaders are bringing about God’s judgment and that God allowed the September 11th attacks and the 2008 economic crash to occur as a warning to the country.

Cahn appeared on the Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Praise the Lord last week where he revealed that multiple senators and members of Congress have contacted him about The Harbinger and asked how the U.S. can escape God’s judgment.

Cahn told the host, the Christian singer Carman, that,

“The Harbinger is reaching Capitol Hill and we have gotten word that about fifteen Senators and members of Congress are reading The Harbinger, they are reading the book.”

He said that one “extremely famous” member of Congress,

“called us up and said, ‘we’re reading this, we have to do something, America is in trouble, we have to pray, there has to be repentance.’

“This person came to New York, we prayed at all the sites right here,” Cahn continued, “then we went to Washington and we prayed outside the Capitol and all those places, so there is a movement among believes on Capitol Hill.”

IF this man is being truthful, I for one find it disturbing that our elected officials in Washington are giving serious heed to this man and the contents of his book.

  1. Actually, most, if not all of the “sins” of “our nation” that Rabbi Cahn and others like him continually carp about grate on me as well. I REALLY DO wish that we were a nation of faithful believers with repentant hearts seeking after God. But that is NOT going to happen by following Israel’s seriously flawed example OR by the result of any misguided legislation his book might inspire. “Fixing” the problem through legislation reflects the same “bullying” mentality as does the ill conceived threats of a copyright suit against anyone who dares to cross them. After all, it is very clear that the REAL reason for the copyright threat is a lot more about power and control than it is about any supposed copyright violation. Just as big businesses and lawyers use IP to tax and control competition, these people are using IP to silence anyone who would seriously question their un-biblical worldview and doctrinal positions. After all, who can you question someone’s doctrinal stance if you can’t quote them? Copyright becomes a perfect solution for silencing any opposition. And of course, they would like to extend that power as much as possible through even more draconian legislation. But how can one criticize those who are advocating righteousness? Because the kind of external works based righteousness these people are advocating is NOT the kind of internal grace based righteousness that Christ taught. Real righteousness is a gift from God based on the teachings of the historic church from antquity, not something derived from political action based on a ouija board interpretation of the Bible.

    • the kind of external works based righteousness these people are advocating is NOT the kind of internal grace based righteousness that Christ taught.

  2. We have never been a “Christian” nation and God, in this gospel age, does not judge nations as in countries. All men stand in condemnation before they are born again, so what judgment are they speaking about? I do not doubt that some elected goofballs are inquiring about the book since America is their idol and the level of spirituality within the halls of congress is vaccuous.

    Have you read the book ?
    Or are just making judgement on it based on what is being said about the book?
    He is probably full of malarkey ( I have not read the book either)
    But if you take Romans 1 to be God’s word, God may not have passed judgement on us but most likely has given this country over to the depraved minds which seem to be prevalent in this country, and judgement will come..

    • I don’t need to read the entire book from page one to the end or the accompanying study guide to know what is in it is unbiblical jim. Many trusted Christian websites have posted extensive excerpts, after reading it, for those not wanting to waste their money purchasing it.

      Such as,

      The Berean Call: part one and part two

      If you’d like, i can provide a more comprehensive list?

  4. Great comment, George. Great points. Cuts to the root issues. Thank you.
    Victoria

  5. Yeah George, I agree with Victoria on that comment. And Rick’s too!! And I haven’t read the book but I did listen to the full prayer/preachment gotcha Cahn did at the Capitol building during the inagurational festivities and he made reference reading excerpts from his book and besides those things I came away with him being a pitch man for his work without a humble broken heart for the sins of a decieved nation!

  6. I thought of Georges comment yesterday, especially the last part, when watching a PBS program about prohibition.

    Prohibition is a good example of the failure to change people’s desires, in this instance for alcoholic beverages, by political action. It didn’t stop people from drinking alcohol and instead made it more desirable TO drink it. It also introduced America to the likes of Al Capone and the whole “mob era”.

    In the end what good did the Christians behind this crusade accomplish? None as far as i can see. But that’s what happens whenever we (Christians) resort to depending upon the arm of the flesh to bring about long lasting change.
