Jonathan Cahn's Extra Biblical Sources Exposed

PART 1

jonathan-cahn-false-teacherJONATHAN CAHN-  Jewish Mysticism / Extra-Biblical Sources/ Prophetic Fraud/ And Revealer of Bogus Mysteries


THE FOLLOWING EXCERPT WAS TAKEN FROM CHARISMA MAGAZINE 
AUGUST 2015 ON AN ARTICLE THAT WAS WRITTEN ABOUT JONATHAN CAHN:

"After a search that took him(Jonathan Cahn) through the OCCULT, UFOs and NOSTRADAMUS".....
                                                                TROY ANDERSON page 58      


FIRST LET US EXAMINE MISLEADING STATEMENTS OF DENIAL WHICH 
JONATHAN CAHN MADE ON JUNE 2012 @STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH .COM

Question: Does Rabbi Cahn draw from extra-biblical, mystical writings as his sources?
Answer:  No.  I only draw on one source for spiritual truth – the Bible. I only believe the Bible is the Word of God.  One may use quotes in writing from a variety of sources – but this is not to be confused with relying on any source for spiritual truth – apart from the Bible.

Question:  It is stated that Jonathan Cahn “says that Zohar, an extrabiblical, mystical source from which the occultic and mystical Kabbalah is derived, greatly influenced his writing.
Answer:  Unfortunately this kind of statements represents some of the extreme and bizarre opposition to The Harbinger – It is an extreme false accusation.
No. I have never in my life said that the Zohar has greatly influenced my writing – nor has it ever.
Rabbinical writings, mystical or otherwise, have been quoted for ages,

NOW FOR THE EVIDENCE PROVING THAT JONATHAN CAHN'S INTELLECTUAL ROOTS AND APOLOGETICS HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY JEWISH MYSTICISM & OCCULTIC WRITINGS WRITTEN BY NEW AGE RABBINICAL SAGES 

Exposing the Zohar





Paul’s Purpose at Athens and the Problem of "Common Ground …


IS IT WRONG FOR CHRISTIANS TO CONSULT THE ZOHAR FOR APOLOGETICS PURPOSES?




The passage which Jose J. Bernal is quoting from at time frame 11:55-12:00 is as follows:
"And the King Messiah will be revealed and all the nations of the world will gather around King Messiah, and the verse will be f
Just because a "Jew" claims to be messianic means nothing.

The Chabad Lubavitch movement was messianic and their messiah was Rabbi Schneerson, not Jesus. they even called him "Yeshua" aka savior.

They practise Kabbalah which is jewish satanism and witchcraft.
The 6 pointed star on the Israeli flag is the star of Moloch
It clearly tells you who they serve!

PART 2

Evil Teachings of Kabballah/The Zohar/The Talmud

Torah Restoration Ministries - Evangelist Daniel John Lee

www.spiritandtorah.com/evilteachings_renewedcov.htm.

First, I want to apologize for not writing this article sooner.  It is long overdue, and I am grieved at the many Messianics and Hebrew-Christians who, upon entering into the Truth of Torah-keeping, are quickly overcome by the wicked one in falling into a deception as old as babylon.
In fact, it was in Ancient Babylon, while the Jews were captive during their 70 year exile, that the Kabballah was first introduced into Jewish culture.
Kabballah, Talmud and the Zohar continued to grow once the Jews returned to Israel and completely infested the Pharisees and Sadducees of the 1st century.
By the 13th century, Kabballah/Zohar and the Talmud had become so complicated and bloated, it threatened to destroy the Jewish people.  Fortunately, even some Jews who had not yet come to Messiah, began to finally see how satanic the teachings first brought from ancient babylon were.
Avi Ben Mordechai and James Trimm, respected "elders" in the Messianic movement, both teach and support kabballah.  Kabballah is a so called "way to interpret the Torah using mystic Jewish understanding" and its supporters claim they are led by the Ruach ha Kadosh.
In fact, as someone once commented to me, Kabballah is merely a replacement for the Ruach itself.
Kabballah teaches, among other things, that eventually you can become so godlike, so close to YHVH that you no longer need Torah.  That you no longer need to obey YHVH.  That you can basically be YHVH yourself.  Utter blasphemy.
It is no coincidence that satanists, witches, warlocks and other pagans love kabballah and use its teachings and incantations often.
There was even a Messianic pastor in southern California, tutored and instructed by Avi Ben Mordechai, who became so wrapped up in Kabballah, Talmud and the Zohar, that he began using wands, casting spells and even erected a mirrored pentagram in the main sanctuary.  YHVH struck this pastor with cancer and he perished, but Avi Ben Mordechai continues to peddle his black-magic teachings cloaked in the guise of Hebrew-roots and Torah teaching.
I suppose it is inevitable that Satan, desperate to stop the rising surge and tide of Truth, would pull out his darkest and most evil strategy -- reviving the kabballah.
The Talmud, which has now been codified, contains so many blasphemous instructions, so many rules AGAINST the written Torah -- NO ONE should ever study it.  The kabballah is FAR WORSE than the Talmud.  The Zohar is just as bad as the kabballah.
Many Messianics and Hebrew-Christians, along with other Israelites and other Torah-keeping movements, think it is beneficial to study the Talmud.  Wrong.  Talmud is wholly darkness and ought not to be learned.
While there are some Jewish traditions which are harmless -- such as observing Hanukkah or placing a seat for Elijah at Passover -- most of them are so steeped in satanism, witchcraft and darkness that no one should ever even read the Talmud.
If you have a Talmud, any books on kabballah (such as those written by Avi Ben Mordechai), or any reference to the Zohar -- you should BURN THEM.  They will lead you into perdition.
To the Torah and the Prophets should have been the rallying call of the Messianic movement.  Unfortunately, those who do not even bother to keep Torah, but are merely watered-down versions of pagan christian churches, have lost their savor.  My former congregation -- Rehoboth -- was Laodicean to the core.  However, those who are serious about keeping Torah tend to get trapped in Talmud, the Zohar and kabballah.  Nathan Lawrence has committed this error and made a shipwreck of his faith and his congregation (which I visited during my time at Rehoboth).
It is time to return to ONLY the Torah and the Prophets.  They are breathed with the Ruach and, as the ReNEWed Covenant authors did, can be used to understand our Messiah YahShua even more.
Child Sex in Talmud
As an addendum to my article on Kabballah, I would like to prove that the Talmud is wicked.
The link below proves that the Talmud allows sex between adults and children as young as 3 years old.  Utter wickedness.  The Jews often refer to this wicked Talmud as the Torah.
The Jews did the SAME thing in the 1st century, referring to their man-made, wicked Talmud as the Torah.  Torah has NOTHING to do with Talmud.
Now, NO Messianic or anyone else who desires to keep Torah can justify studying the Talmud.  It is completely evil.

Jose J. Bernal


MR. CAHN'S EXTRA-BIBLICAL THEOLOGY EXPOSED: A TRUE FULL DISCLOSURE BY A FORMER MEMBER OF BETH ISRAEL"
http://seraphimre.blogspot.com/

JOSE J. BERNAL A MINISTER UNDER THE PASTORAL LEADERSHIP OF JONATHAN CAHN BELIEVES IT'S OKAY FOR CHRISTIAN BIBLE SCHOLARS(INCLUDING HIMSELF & JONATHAN CAHN) TO USE THE ZOHAR, A JEWISH MYSTICAL SATANIC BIBLE TO SUPPLEMENT THEIR APOLOGETICS.

Jose J. Bernal said:
"Isn't it amazing how God uses Paul in Acts 17 to teach the pagans from their own writings on Mar's Hill and how in Apologetics even the Book of Zohar unwittingly supports the Gospel because it has been used by faithful witness Apologists as a "hostile witness" of the Gospel? Only God can do such things; turn something like the Book of Zohar into a tool that bears witness that Jesus is the Messiah! Thank you." 

"The only thing that I would use the Zohar for and the Baybylonian Talmud would be for the same use that eminent Messianic Jews such as Dr. Arnold G. Fruchtenbaum, Dr. Michael Rygelnik, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Mitch Glazer, and many more, such as Pastor and Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn would use such works for; to affirm from them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is called in Apologetics "the fair use of a hostile witness" to affirm a specific matter".

In Dave James newly released book "The Harbinger: Fact or Fiction", in chapter 17 "The Tenth Seal", Mr. James discusses very profoundly the mystical qualities of Mr. Cahn's kabbalistic theology. I make the following quote from page 198 of the same chapter:

" In the July 3, 2012 interview when Brannon Howse expressed his deep concern about Cahn using mystical sources for his messages, Cahn tried to justify his practice by noting that the Apostle Paul also referred to the teaching of pagan philosophers in his address to the Athenians(Acts 17:22-31). He went on to suggest that Paul would have been"crucified" by discernment ministries for using a hymn to Zeus and because of his associations.(WHAT ASSOCIATIONS? THAT PAUL BELIEVED THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND GREEK MYTHOLOGY HAVE A COMMON GROUND FOR SHARING THE WORD OF GOD?)
That is a red herring. The two situations are completely different. Paul's approach is nothing like Cahn's. Cahn refers to the mystical rabbinical writings POSITIVELY, saying that because God had inspired them his church should "listen to the rabbis". He presents the Zohar as something that can be studied and it's depths plumbed for hidden mysteries like he had just revealed for the first time. 
In stark contrast, Paul immediately tells his audience that what they have been taught by their poets about the unknown god they worship is completely wrong. He does not suggest that their sayings contain hidden mysteries that were inspired by God and that he had just discovered for the first time. Paul never implies that the Athenians should listen to these men. Rather he refers to a single point of agreement(we all come from God) to denounce their idols. From Romans we understand that the knowledge of that truth is not a hidden mystery but has rather been made plain to everyone through both the conscience and the creation(Romans 1:18-2:16).

The above theological statement is further substantiated from the Apostle Paul's letters to his Greek converts in the following biblical passages: 
1 Corinthians 1:17- 31, 1 Corinthians 2:1-16 & Colossians 2:8 NKJV.
FOR A MORE IN DEPTH STUDY OF ACTS 17:22-31 READ THE ARTICLE WRITTEN BY 
R.K. McGREGOR WRIGHT, TH.M.,PH.D. "PAUL'S PURPOSE AT ATHENS AND THE PROBLEM OF COMMON GROUND" PARTS
The Link is as follows:
http://www.dtl.org/apologetics/wright/athens-1.htm

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERPT FROM THE BACK COVER OF THE HARBINGER:
"Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and OMENS of national destruction – These same nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications for America's future and end-time prophecy".
Anyone who believes that the Harbinger is based solely on the inerrant word of God will be subjected to a great delusion. Mr. Cahn introduces the concept of JEWISH MYSTICAL THOUGHT WITHIN THE HARBINGER to his readers vaguely under the following pages: 11, 40,97,240,& 242. THIS CONCEPT HAS A DIRECT BEARING ON MR. CAHN'S EXTRA-BIBLICAL THEOLOGY.  THE WORD HARBINGER ALSO MEANS OMEN.  IT IS FORBIDDEN IN GOD'S WORD TO INTERPRET OMENS. IT IS AN ILLEGITIMATE MEANS OF TRYING TO DETERMINE THE WILL OF GOD!  SEE PASSAGE BELOW:  


“When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to IMITATE the detestable things of those nations.  There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or ONE WHO INTERPRETS OMENS, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead" (Deuteronomy 18:9-11).
 
 I am here to expose the fact that Jonathan Cahn for many years has been utilizing mystical Hebrew writings such as the Zohar and the Jewish  Babylonian Talmud to supplement and substantiate some of his teachings and sermons.

  Mr. Cahn before coming to Messiah was once involved with the occult  sometime during his late teen years in search of  spiritual truth. Unfortunately this has continued to influence his critical thinking which is reflective in his Apologetics and theology. I personally was at one time exposed to his mystical teachings  as a former member of his church Beth Israel.  

Omens are closely tied with fortune-telling and divination, as the omen must be “read” or “divined” by someone who knows how. Throughout the ancient world, omens (also referred to as signs and portents) were believed, divined, and obeyed. For example, in ancient Assyria if the king received an evil omen, he would go into hiding and the Assyrians would place a decoy king on the throne in anticipation that the evil event would befall the false king instead of the true one. 

However, the Bible expressly forbids divination of any kind: “Let no one be found among you who . . . interprets omens. . . . Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord” (Deuteronomy 18:10–12). We do not live by superstition, and we should not be searching for good or evil omens. Our understanding of the spiritual world does not come through the occult. God has given us the ultimate sign of His goodness, love, and grace in Jesus Christ (1 John 4:9). The Bible is our source for spiritual insight (2 Peter 1:19–21).

THE ZOHAR MEANS "RADIANCE or SPLENDOR". IT IS THE PREMIER TEXT OF OCCULTIC KNOWLEDGE WITHIN THE KABBALAH and a basis for laws instituted by NEW AGE RABBINICAL SAGES. The Zohar is a synthesis of the OCCULT GNOSIS of PHARAONIC EGYPT & ANCIENT BABYLON. And he MR. CAHN claims that there is absolutely nothing wrong with quoting from the Zohar. That many apologists, bible commentators etc do this(see standupforthetruth.com on his most recent interview question #6 June 2012). 

Ofcourse they do. ONLY professing christian kabbalists and christian gnostics WHO ARE SHAKING HANDS WITH THE DEVIL use the Zohar as a reference manual in their QUEST FOR ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE by decoding the past like Mr. Cahn does; in search of so called biblical mysteries which just don't exist within the sacred text. 
The Zohar is the MYSTICAL CLASSICAL TEXT USED BY THE KABBALISTS. This practice by Jonathan Cahn is the equivalent of many christians who today attempt to interpret bible prophecies by using the Quatrains of Nostradamus. I was there one night at Beth Israel several years ago, when he preached that sermon "the Zohar Speaks". I heard and saw him say 2 times to the congregation, that he believed these new age rabbinical sages who wrote the Zohar(Rabbi Simeon bar Yochai and Rabbi Moses De Leon etc) and writings were put there by the Holy Spirit . BUT THE INERRANT WORD OF GOD THROUGH HIS SPIRIT PLAINLY STATES THAT SUCH MEN WILL ARISE IN THE LAST DAYS SEE 1 TIMOTHY 4:1 & GALATIANS 1:8-9.

In standupforthetruth.com, Mr. Cahn in question#5 was aked: "One critic said that since The Harbinger speaks of MYSTERIES being revealed-does this have to do with GNOSTIC beliefs?
ANSWERE: A very confused view. Unless we want to call the Apostle Paul a gnostic, SINCE HE ALSO SPOKE OF MYSTERIES. It's precisely the opposite. The Gnostics believed in knowledge that was to be kept secret, to stay a mystery. God is the one who reveals mysteries. THE HARBINGER DOES LIKEWISE-IT REVEALS MYSTERIES. If there are no mysteries, then we know everything there is to know. But we don't. And God, by his Spirit, is to lead us to continual insight, and show us things we don't know.

REBUTTAL: I make the following quotation from the book "CORRECTING THE CULTS" 
from pages 108-109(authors Norman L. Geisler & Ron Rhodes apologist)
Mathew 13:10-11: DID JESUS TEACH THAT WE NEED TO SEEK A HIDDEN, SECONDARY(esoteric) MEANING IN SCRIPTURE, AS NEW AGERS SAY?
Misinterpretation: Some New Agers appeal to Mathew 13:10-11 in an attempt to show that we should seek secret and hidden(esoteric) meaning in scripture. Jesus is portrayed being in front of a multitude composed of both believers and unbelievers. He did not attempt to separate the believers from the unbelievers and then instruct only the believers. Rather, he constructed his teaching in such a way that believers would understand what he said but unbelievers would not-by using parables. Then, after teaching one such parable, a disciple asked Jesus: "Why do you speak to the people in parables"? (see Mathew 13:10). Jesus answered: "THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SECRETS(OR MYSTERIES) OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOU(believers) BUT NOT TO THEM(unbelievers)
Mathew 13:11. 
IN OTHER WORDS, JESUS IS CLEARLY STATING THE MYSTERIES OF GOD'S KINGDOM AND OF HUMAN HISTORY PAST, PRESENT, & FUTURE HAVE ALREADY BEEN REVEALED BY GOD'S INERRANT WORD! NOT BY SEEKING HIDDEN, SECONDARY OR ESOTERIC MEANING IN SCRIPTURE LIKE MR. JONATHAN CAHN DOES IN THE HARBINGER AND THROUGH HIS EXTRA-BIBLICAL THEOLOGY.

The Zohar falls under the category of pseudepigrapha (see JEWISHENCYCLOPEDIA.com). The Zohar is a pseudepigraphic work which PRETENDS to be a REVELATION FROM GOD communicated through Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai to the latter's select disciples in the form of a COMMENTARY on the first 5 books of Moses/Torah. I qoute the following definition from Dr. Randall Price's book " Searching for the Original Bible" page 136 the following: "the term pseudepigrapha literally means falsely entitled. It refers to a collection of some 63 documents written between 250BC-200AD by hellenistic jews. Each book was written under a psuedonym whose work was not part of the canonical hebrew bible. No psuedepigrapha texts are CITED or EXPLICITLY referred to by any biblical authors of the New Testament(and I will add neither by Jesus himself)".

I also make the following quote from Bob Larson's book "WORLD RELIGIONS & ALTERNATIVE SPIRITUALITY" pages 291-292 in regards to the Zohar & the Kabbalah: 
"At the core of jewish myticism is the practice of ESOTERIC DISCIPLINES that tap into the secret wisdom that can involve ascent to and unitive experiences with the divine realm. Contemporary teachers of the ZOHAR/KABBALAH say the emphasis of Kabbalah should be on putting it's principles into action rather than worrying about theology and the nature of GOD. And as is often the case with New Age religions, the emphasis is on what is in it for us. In the case of the Zohar/Kabbalah, it's promoters claim it will bring people peace,joy and fulfillment without any worries about moral codes like the 10 Commandments" end of quote.

With regards to Mr. Cahn's use of the Jewish Talmud, what exactly is so HERETICAL about it which is never disclosed? It is considered HOLY WRIT for the Jews. The Talmud SUPERCEDES the OLD TESTAMENT in authority for the Jews. And the Talmud is the MOST RACIST, HATE MONGERING, BLASPHEMOUS BOOK the world has ever known! The Satanic verses of the Talmud can be classified into 3 categories: 1) JEWISH SUPREMACY 2)HATRED TOWARDS THE GOYS(GENTILES) & 
3) BLASPHEMIES AGAINST JESUS CHRIST, THE VIRGIN MARY & ALL CHRISTIANS.

But the Messiah Yeshua(Jesus) censored the ORAL LAW(TALMUD) when he said
"BY THE TRADITIONS OF YOUR ELDERS(PHARISEES) YOU MAKE VOID THE WORD OF GOD MATHEW 15. 
For a more indepth study of the Jewish Talmud go to the following link:
www.realjewnews.com and look up the article "SATANIC VERSES OF THE JEWISH TALMUD" by Brother Nathanael Kapner.

1 Thes: 5:21 & Acts 17:11 commands us to test all things. This is not an option. Blind acceptance of any theological view, simply because it was set forth by a respected brother or minister is very dangerous and detrimental to the Body of Christ to say the least.

Paul in Galatians 1:8 exhorts the Body of Christ as follows: NOW EVEN IF WE OR AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN SHOULD DECLARE TO YOU ANOTHER GOSPEL OUTSIDE OF WHAT WE HAVE DECLARED TO YOU, HE WILL BE CURSED.
If the body of Christ is ready to EMBRACE ANOTHER GOSPEL CORRUPTED WITH JEWISH MYSTICISM, THEY CAN HAVE IT. After spending more than 7 years at Beth Israel, I have no doubt that the MESSIANIC JEWISH MOVEMENT are involved with DOCTRINES & RELIGIOUS PRACTICES that are INCONSISTENT with God's Word and are CONTRARY to HIS WILL FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST. Any entity that believes in Yeshua(JESUS), that uses the term, `Judaism' will grow into a Judaism of sorts. And that's exactly what we have seen in the last 50 years of Messianic Judaism. It's one part Orthodox Judaism, one part Kabbalah, one part Talmud, one part Church, and four parts corrupted.
Log onto the following link: http://jesus-messiah.com and read the article "DANGERS OF THE FALSE MESSIANIC MOVEMENT by Dr. G. RECKART- PASTOR. Also read: GOODBYE MESSIANIC JUDAISM BY AVRAM YEHOSHUA @ www.SEEDOFABRAHAM.NET.

Everything that is being shared with you ultimately led to my resignation as a member from Beth Israel. If you want to ignore my warnings, feel free to do so at your own peril. 

It is advisable for Mr. Jonathan Cahn and any other staff member within his ministry who are in possesion of these OCCULTIC WORKS OF LITERATURE( i.e. Mr. JOSE J. BERNAL THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK: THE TRUTH ABOUT THE HARBINGER- RELEASE DATE OCT 1, 2013) to follow the example of the EPHESIANS in ACTS 19:19 and burn your occultic books in a BONFIRE instead of trying to justify your heretical doctrines in the name of APOLOGETICS. Galatians 5: 19 "FOR THE WORKS OF THE FLESH ARE WELL KNOWN.....VERSE 20....HERESIES.....VERSE 21.....AS I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE AND I SAY TO YOU NOW, THOSE WHO PRACTICE SUCH THINGS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

"It is not for nothing that the authoritative edition of the Talmud is known as the Babylonian Talmud. As Christians misled by their Judaizing preachers & popes are increasingly consulting Jewish rabbinical sources for a "PURER" understanding of the Old Testament, they are unknowningly consulting the OCCULT. 
Judaism is the religion of the Pharisees and the patrimony of Babylon from where the Talmudic & Kabbalistic traditions of Judaism ultimately derive. Orthodox Judaism's other sacred book, the Kabbalah( THE ZOHAR BEING IT'S PREMIER TEXT OF OCCULT KNOWLEDGE) is filled with astrological teachings, fortune telling, gematria, necromancy & DEMONOLOGY.
Orthodox Rabbis place curses, cast spells & imagine they have powers greater than God, derived from their study of the Sefer Yezriah(a book of Kabbalistic Magic). Christians are TRAFFICKING in Babylonian Paganism when they DEFER to the Rabbis of Judaism "MICHAEL HOFFMAN".

Every christian across America who have read Mr. Cahn's book and concluded that it is a PROPHETIC WORD from God to this nation, need to seriously re-examine your beliefs. Jewish Gnosticism is being IMPORTED very SUBTLELY into mainstream Christianity. YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY MAY BE IN JEOPARDY!
