WAS JOHN NELSON DARBY INFLUENCED BY THE OCCULT?


 Dispensationalism: Occult Roots
In this series the term "Dispensationalism" refers to the theological system invented in the 1830's by Plymouth Brethren founder, John Nelson Darby (Nov. 18, 1800 — April 29, 1882). While there may be controversy over whether he was the first person to conceive of the pre-tribulation rapture and two distinct peoples of God doctrines, it is certain he played a huge role in systematizing and promoting dispensational theology. His doctrines are found in C. I. Scofield's Old Scofield Study Bible—copyright 1909 and 1917 and are the foundation for other dispensational works.
This series of charts and articles is published to make you aware that J.N. Darby marked his bible translation, The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby, and his theological writings with Theosophical/occult vocabulary and doctrines.

The Zohar and Orthodox Judaism: A Homo-Erotic Culture




                                                          
                                                        

ABOVE: JONATHAN CAHN TEACHING FROM THE ZOHAR
THE PREMIER TEXT OF OCCULTIC KNOWLEDGE

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    




Question: "What is the Zohar?"

Answer: 
The Zohar is a commentary on the Hebrew Scriptures and the primary source of the beliefs of Kabbalah, a mystical form of Judaism. According to Kabbalah, this text was written in the 2nd century AD by Shimon bar Yochai. Supposedly, bar Yochai was inspired by visions from the angel Gabriel to record secret, powerful knowledge about interpreting the Torah. Unlike other Jewish commentaries on the Torah, known as the Mishnah or Midrash, the Zohar is heavily mystical and   occultic- or witchcraft-based approach to spirituality. Kabbalists believe that Jewish leadership during the Roman era considered such knowledge to be too powerful for the common man, and so they suppressed it.

According to the Zohar, God’s message in the Torah is meant to be understood at four levels: literal, allegorical, Rabbinic, and secretive. In other words, the more powerful and truthful purpose of the Torah is only accessible to those with special knowledge and insight, per Kabbalah. This places the Zohar and Kabbalah firmly in the sphere ofGnosticism and mysticism.

The text of the Zohar was unknown until first published in the 13th century by Moses de León. De León claimed the writings to be traditions passed down from Shimon bar Yochai many centuries before. However, most modern scholars, Jewish and otherwise, believe that de León himself actually composed the Zohar’s content. De León’s publication came from a place and era when Gnostic concepts were in fashion. Also, no mention is made of the Zohar or its contents in any midrash known prior to de León’s publication of the Zohar.

Mainstream Christianity considers the Zohar and Kabbalah to be false teachings in the same vein as other Gnostic and mystical cults. The same is true of all major sects of mainstream Judaism, although some Jewish scholars see the Zohar as useful for gaining insight into Jewish thinking, and some use the Zohar to provide additional opinions on the meaning of the Torah.


The Zohar and Orthodox Judaism: A Homo-Erotic Culture

There are many aspects of Orthodox Judaism that have homosexual features, including male-only, nude ritual baths and episodic segregation from women. Since generations of adult Judaic males were molested as infants by the mohel, they are marked for darkness through this heinous act, just as surely as the Christian is marked for light by baptism. Prior to the modern era, every Orthodox Judaic male was molested as an infant, and then as a child growing up and as an adult he witnessed a series of ritual molestations at subsequent circumcisions. Quite naturally, the sight of repeated acts of fellatio perpetrated by adult males on baby boys leads to the creation of a subtle homosexual culture that permeates the whole of Orthodox Judaism. Subsequent homosexual acts as adults, in particular involving rabbis, are covered up, as required, as stipulated in BT Mo'ed Katan 17a and the halackos of lashon hara (laws against "evil speech"). Orthodox Judaism is a single-sex society, immersed in a milieu of homosexuality, or as the Judaic homosexual journalist Jay Michaelson terms it, homo-eroticism: "The minor Jewish holiday of Lag B'Omer, the 33rd day after the beginning of Passover, is traditionally observed as the yahrzeit 824 of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai, to whom has been ascribed the authorship of the Zohar, masterpiece of Kabbalah... Up to 30,000 people converge on his tomb and dance through the night and throughout the entire next day. Given that the tomb complex itself is only the size of an average suburban house, the crowding is intense... Of course, the hordes are separated -men on one side, women on the other. And so for the entire time I was there, I was sandwiched between a moving mass of male humanity. There was no personal space whatsoever; every part of my body, except my head, was in full contact with a part of someone else's body. There were rare instances where I stumbled into a gap in the crowd. But most of the time, I had to surrender to its ebbs and flows, pushing through the sea of flesh to get where I wanted to go. The full body contact in an undulating, dancing, ecstatic, sweaty, loud, and extremely excited crowd of men was only the beginning. Men were dancing with each other, embracing one another, laughing and celebrating, singing at the top of their lungs. Bonfires were burning. And the dancing was erotic, sensual. Two men, captured on video by a friend of mine performed sensual yichudim (unifications) using each other's bodies as the medium for the Divine. They ran their hands a few inches from one another's bodies - imagine the hand-gestures a sailor might make to show the outline of a curvaceous woman, except the woman is actually there, except the woman is actually a man. "The two men made eye contact, slid around one another like a pair of belly-dancers, with seductive expressions on their faces. Had I not seen it myself, I would not have believed it. This was not the deracinated 'simcha dancing' popular in more moderate Orthodox circles. This was ecstatic, erotic.. Now, these were haredi men living in a virtually all-male environment, seeing their wives only a few hours each day and avoiding conversations with all other women. They had been educated in single-sex yeshivas. "There is a longstanding Jewish custom to immerse in the mikva, the ritual bath, before the sabbath and holidays. Some hasidic men do it every morning before prayer or study. According to halacha, only women are required to immerse in the mikva, after menstruation, as a purification rite. But it is a custom which has become widespread. The mikva, is seen as purifying one from an array of sins - but most importantly, that of shichvat zera,, or spilled seed. Jewish law is very concerned with the discharges of the body, chiefly blood and semen, both of which were believed to contain the life-energy of a person... "In Mea Shearim, the oldest haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem, the pre-sabbath mikva has been expanded to a wild extreme. I visited a complex with a traditional schvitz (steam room) combined with three mikvas (warm, hot, and scalding) and group showers. Old men, young men, adolescents, and boys filled the complex, with far more personal body contact than I saw even in the Turkish bathhouses of Europe. In the schvitz, it was not unusual for a man to bend over, hand the man behind him the traditional platza branches, and ask him to whip him with it - or, as an alternative, to hand the man a soapy rag and ask for a massage. I have no interest in S&M (sado-masochism), and so have only seen it practiced a few times... There was, as far as I could see, little phenomenological difference between what I saw there and what I saw at the Mea Shearim schvitz. Again, no 'sex.' But the whipping sound, followed by passionate sighs from the man being whipped. The occasional grunts of men, HARDER! THE SMELLS OF NAKED MEN.

ANOTHER BOOK ABOUT ESOTERIC MYSTERIES BY RABBI MYSTERIO & PROPHETIC FRAUD JONATHAN CAHN

jonathan-cahn-false-teacherJONATHAN CAHN:  JEWISH MYSTICISM , EXTRA-BIBLICAL SOURCES,                            America's False Prophet AND REVEALER OF BOGUS MYSTERIES

VIDEO #1 trailer



Jonathan Cahn: What is the Book of Mysteries?

VIDEO #2 trailer



IMPORTANT UPDATE:

THE VIDEO BELOW WAS RELEASED BY JONATHAN CAHN ON APRIL 17th 2017. AFTER YOU'RE DONE WATCHING THIS VIDEO,  I  PRESENT INDISPUTABLE EVIDENCE REFUTING HIS CLAIMS ABOUT HIS BOOK "THE BOOK OF MYSTERIES".
ALSO IN THIS VIDEO,   JONATHAN CAHN ATTEMPS  TO JUSTIFY HIS USE OF OCCULTIC RABBINICAL WRITINGS  BY CLAIMING THAT HE WAS FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ONE OF THE APOSTLES(PAUL) WHEN HE(CAHN) USED OCCULTIC WRITINGS (i.e.THE ZOHAR & BABYLONIAN TALMUD) AS A BRIDGE BUILDER TO SHARE THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH, AND IT SHOULD BE DULY NOTED BY ALL CHRISTIANS ESPECIALLY MINISTERS OF THE GOSPEL THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SCRIPTURAL BASIS TO SUPPORT MR. CAHN'S CLAIMS; THAT THE APOSTLE PAUL RESORTED TO OCCULTIC PAGAN WRITINGS AS A BRIDGE BUILDER FOR APOLOGETICS PURPOSES IN ORDER TO SHARE THE GOOD NEWS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AT ATHENS GREECE. GO TO THE FOLLOWING LINK BELOW FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATION REFUTING MR. CAHN'S ERRONEOUS THEOLOGICAL VIEWS:

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



Jonathan Cahn Addresses 'Book of Mysteries', Kabbalah & Issues



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                      

Apparently, the time has come for the false Jewish prophets of Mystery Schools that are prevalent in some Messianic Jewish circles to come out of the closet and take a bow. Now that Christians have been trained to search for hidden messages in their Bibles, Jonathan Cahn has come out with his third book; "The Book of Mysteries." Does the Bible contain "mysteries," hidden codes and dates for Christians to distract themselves searching out? Absolutely not! God never intended for His word to be a book of mysteries to be unlocked. That is  thoroughly  based on Gnostic teaching.

First we were presented with The Harbinger. Then the Mystery of the Shemitah. Both were proven to be bogus mysteries by Bible Scholars from around the country. And now once again we are presented with  Jonathan Cahn's latest gimmick " THE BOOK OF MYSTERIES". Jonathan Cahn has portrayed himself to the world as a modern day Old Testament Prophet who supposedly receives revelations from God, and has the ability to UNLOCK MYSTERIES FROM THE BIBLE LIKE NO OTHER HUMAN BEING HAS DONE SINCE THE DAWN OF MANKIND, THROUGH DREAMS AND VISIONS AND OTHER WORLDLY ORACLES. MAN GIVE ME A BREAK! NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. THAT MEANS THAT KING SOLOMON, THE PROPHET DANIEL, THE APOSTLE PAUL AND EVEN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF COULD NOT MATCH UP TO JONATHAN CAHN BECAUSE THEY JUST DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT. BY BIBLICAL DEFINITION, THIS GUY JUST FITS THE BILL OF A FALSE PROPHET, WHO HAS DUPED MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORLD WHILE CASHING IN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM PROFIT SALES. AND HIS LATEST BOOK  IS JUST ANOTHER PLOY TO COVER UP THAT FACT.  It is my personal belief that Jonathan Cahn is suffering from delusions of grandeur and that usually is a sign that this person may be an egomaniac and not even realize it.

"The book begins by taking Jonathan Cahn and his initiates to a desert place where students live as the people of old did, in caves or small dwellings with no modern conveniences such as electricity or the Internet, this is obviously the caves of the Qumran where a Jewish sect known as the Essenes lived and eventually the Dead Sea Scrolls were later discovered. The Qumran Caves were not entirely barren. There were carefully maintained gardens of trees, plants, vines, and flowers. The Essenes lived on the shores of lakes and rivers, away from cities and towns, and practiced a communal way of life, sharing equally in everything. They were mainly agriculturists and arboriculturists, having a vast knowledge of crops, soil and climatic conditions which enabled them to grow a great variety of fruits and vegetables in comparatively desert areas and with a minimum of labor."
The teacher taught concepts to his students one at a time, during any time of day, while the student was working or resting, and sometimes it was in response to a question the student asked" .

(NOTE: THE INTERNAL EVIDENCE PROVIDED IN THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH CAN BE FOUND IN THE CHAPTER TITLED" IN THE BEGINNING".  It clearly shows how Jonathan Cahn very subtly used the Essenes  cult as a template in order to introduce his readers to this odyssey).

Another interesting observation I made is the official trailer video above in video #1. You can very easily see in fragment forms of what appears to be  the ESSENE'S  BOOK OF MYSTERIES FOUND AMONG THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS, AN ELDERLY MAN  IN A CAVE PLAYING THE ROLE  OF TEACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS,  QUMRAN CAVES IN THE DESERT,  OTHER ANCIENT BOOKS FOUND IN THE  QUMRAN CAVES etc, etc.  KNOWING JONATHAN CAHN'S  APOLOGETICS APPROACH, THE OTHER ANCIENT BOOKS BEING ALLUDED TO IN THIS VIDEO #1 TRAILER ARE  EXTRA BIBLICAL SOURCES, THE BABYLONIAN TALMUD WRITTEN BY NEW AGE RABBINICAL SAGES.  Also in video #2 at approximately time frame 25 seconds, Jonathan Cahn clearly makes reference to the MYSTERIES OF THE RABBIS AND THEIR WRITINGS  REFERRING TO NEW AGE RABBINICAL SAGES.

The Book of Mysteries and the way it is constructed closely resembles another unnamed wisdom book found among the Dead Sea Scrolls, variously called The Secret of the Way Things Are or the Sapiential Work. In both texts, the term raz occurs frequently. Raz means "mystery" or "secret", and is defined as a type of wisdom or knowledge that is known by God and can only be known by humans by divine revelation. This word often occurs in the phrase raz nihyeh, which can be translated as "the secret of the way things are". The assumption behind The Book of Mysteries is that revelation, not reason, is the key to wisdom. According to a Jewish legend, one of the Essenes, named Menachem, had passed at least some of his mystical knowledge to the Talmudic mystic Nehunya ben HaKanah, to whom the Kabbalistic tradition attributes Sefer HaBahir and, by some opinions, Sefer HaKanah, Sefer HaPeliah, and Sefer HaTemunah. Some Essene rituals, such as daily immersion in the mikveh, coincide with contemporary Hasidic practices; some historians have also suggested that the name "Essene" is a Hellenized form of the word "Hasidim" or "Hasid".


It is interesting to note that the Essenes were also the authors of SEVERAL HOROSCOPES, 4Q186,4Q534, & 4Q561. HOROSCOPES FALL UNDER THE KNOWLEDGE BRANCH OF THE OCCULT. This is equivalent to DIVINATION which is unlocking secret knowledge/MYSTERIES. The Essenes also utilized a system of GEMATRIA/NUMEROLOGY. By applying the various forms of Kabbalistic gematria and numerology to the Bible, entirely heretical meanings can be promoted as also is demonstrated with the process of Temura or permutation of the Scriptures. The Essenes also believed in REINCARNATION. The Essenes were a monastic order of Jews in New Testament times whose doctrines was an EXTREME FORM OF PHARISAISM.  This Jewish monastic order, as their records now disclose, recognized as their head a "TEACHER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS" who had revealed to them secret mysteries of rules for life.


The Pharisees are the ancestors of modern day ORTHODOX JUDAISM WITH THEIR OCCULTIC WRITINGS i.e. THE ZOHAR, THE BABYLONIAN AND PALESTINIAN TALMUD. Rabbinic/Orthodox Judaism is an anti-biblical religion of racism, self worship,superstition, and deceit.

JONATHAN CAHN'S book makes reference to an unnamed ESSENE TEACHER(perhaps alluding to himself as the main character) who claims to be the recipient of such a revelation and is passing it along to his initiates. It is under this  setting or paradigm that Jonathan Cahn takes his readers on a mystical journey.

Why end times FANTASY WRITER JONATHAN CAHN'S book failed the acid test:

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 BUT NOT TO THEM cf Mathew 13:11. Clearly then Mathew 13 does not support but rather argues against esotericism".

Jesus held to a literal not a esoteric method of interpreting scripture and is clear in that he literally interpreted the creation account of Adam and Eve cf Mathew 13:35,25:34,Mark 10:6, the account of Noah's Ark and the Flood cf Mathew 24:38-39,Luke 17:26-27, the account of Jonah and the Whale
cf Mathew 12:39-41, the account of Sodom and Gomorrah cf Mathew 10:15, and the account of Lot and his Wife cf Luke 17: 28-29.

In her commentary on The Harbinger, Christine Pack wrote:

"(The apostle) Paul does talk about the mystery of Gentiles and Jews being united together in a common church and common faith (something that could have scarcely been imagined in Old Testament times). There is also the mystery of Jesus Christ, who was dimly glimpsed through types and shadows in the Old Testament, but Who was gloriously revealed in his fullness as our Savior in the New Testament. But these are mysteries which are laid open for all to see and know and understand and respond to, and not clues on a Mysterious Journey to Somewhere (which is really the more western understanding of the word "mystery")."
  • Secrets and Mysteries
Many false prophets claim to have received messages and / or visions from God that are to be kept secret from other people, sometimes until a specified time.
Beware of this as it actually elevates the false prophet since it makes him / her special, with privy to “secret” information. This is not the way of God.
I can think of only one place in the Bible where something like this occurred. In Revelation 10:1-4 John is told by an angel to not reveal that which the seven peals of thunder had spoken. It is obvious from the scriptures that this was done not to elevate John, but for purposes that only God knows. In addition, this account occurs in the Bible, which we know to be the inspired Word of God.
In addition to secrets, there are those who include mysteries in their prophecies. These take the form of mysterious words, phrases, connotations, numerical puzzles, and riddles that leave the reader either mystified or confused.
Again, this brings elevation to the false prophet since he supposedly received these things and it implies that he is the one to whom God has chosen to know the mystery. The words “mystery” and “mysteries” appear 26 times in the New Testament (New American Standard Version). In all cases the mystery is revealed to the believers. Only the unbelievers are left mystified, and it is no wonder, since they are unable to see the truth that is in Christ. Satan is the author of mysteries that are given to men for elevation.

On Gnosticism:

"Gnosticism is a very old heresy that teaches that the truth has to be decoded, uncovered, unlocked, unveiled, discovered".

Secret Knowledge = Gnosticism

Gnosticism is a heresy because, according to God, we are given all that we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3) in God's word. We don't need to decode secret mysteries, unravel sealed up messages, decipher clues, or pull back the veil on hidden things. All that we need, all that God wants us to know, is contained in the Bible.

Going back for a minute to Cahn's original work "The Harbinger," let's look at the title. The word,"Harbinger" is kind of an old fashioned word referring to someone or something that foreshadows an upcoming event. But it's use tells us something about the beliefs of the writer Mr. Cahn, just as the use of certain terminology by John Nelson Darby makes his association with Theosophy clear. Interestingly, Helena Blavatsky frequently used the term "Harbinger," in relation to Lucifer. (Thanks go out to DeAnne for bringing this to my attention):

"It is but natural - even from the dead letter standpoint - to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the "Harbinger of Light," bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; and he who was the first to whisper: "in the day ye eat thereof ye shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil" - can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour." - Wandering Jew (Vol. 2, p. 243).

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky was a Russian occultist, spirit medium, and author who co-founded the Theosophical Society in 1875. The Theosophical Society is a LUCIFER IAN OCCULT RELIGION.

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. ANYONE WHO DOES SO IS DABBLING WITH THE OCCULT AND SHAKING HANDS WITH THE DEVIL.  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).

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).  


 Jonathan Cahn in his book The Harbinger claims that his teachings and sermons are known for their prophetic significance and their revealing of deep mysteries of God’s Word. 

From the back cover of the Harbinger paragraph 2...."THESE SAME NINE HARBINGERS ARE NOW MANIFESTING IN AMERICA WITH PROFOUND RAMIFICATIONS FOR AMERICA'S FUTURE AND END TIME PROPHECY"(ESCHATOLOGY).

A quotation from The Harbinger page 129 the Prophet to Nouriel:

"It all goes back to the PROPHECY....EVERYTHING-the collapse of Wall St, the rise and fall of the credit market, the war in Iraq, the collapse of the housing market, the foreclosures, the defaults, the bankruptcies, the government takeovers, EVERYTHING- politics, foreign policy world history-EVERYTHING that happened after. It ALL GOES BACK TO THE PROPHECY AND TO THE ANCIENT MYSTERY".

Also Jonathan Cahn in his book T.H.claims that Isaiah 9:10 FORETOLD PROPHETICALLY ALL THE EVENTS FROM SEPT 11TH 2001-SEPT 2008 INCLUDING GLOBAL EVENTS? 

THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH: Jonathan Cahn’s nine harbingers  were after-the-fact analysis or opinions of his own personal doing. They are not really prophecies. It was all an elaborate fabrication which duped millions of Christians around the world.  It is a literary work based on EISEGESIS.  What do I mean by that? Eisegesis involves 1) imagination: what ideas do I want to present? 2) exploration: what Scripture passage seems to fit with my ideas? and 3) application: what does my idea mean? In eisegesis there is  no cross-referencing with related passages of scripture, and no real desire to understand the actual meaning of the sacred text in it's entire context as the biblical author originally intended for his readers. Scripture serves only as a prop to the interpreter’s idea. I know these things because I read the book myself. Also I was present at his Church Beth Israel as a former member and witnessed first hand the evolution of the Harbinger as a continuing series of sermons before it was finally put into print.

seraphimre.blogspot.com/.../a-book-based-on-prophetic-speculation.html

There is so much to connect Mr. Cahn to New Age Rabbinical  Sages and their MAN MADE DOCTRINAL SYSTEM,  first and most obviously; THE ZOHAR the premier text of occultic knowledge, The Babylonian Talmud,  all having a direct correlation to Babylonian Paganism, Freemasonry, Kabbalah, Theosophy and Gnosticism.  Mr. Cahn before coming to Messiah was once involved with the occult  at some point 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.  A number of years ago, Mr. Cahn produced an 8 volume teaching series "A GUIDE TO THE JEWISH WORLD". In this teaching series Mr. Cahn quotes several times from the Zohar and Babylonian Talmud to supplement his teaching. I (Kris Kringle) personally was at one time exposed to his mystical teachings, since I was once a member of his church Beth Israel. 
    Mr. Cahn over a period of many years has been tapping into these extra-biblical sources mentioned above, written by NEW AGE RABBINICAL SAGES in order to concoct many of his bogus mysteries which obviously has now been put into  book format. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND WATCH THIS VIDEO VERIFYING MY STATEMENT:  In this video he mentions to his host, Pat Robertson, that some of his sources came from ANCIENT JEWISH WRITINGS.  Knowing Mr. Cahn's Apologetic Methods, be assured that the Jewish Writings alluded to here are none other than EXTRA-BIBLICAL SOURCES within the HEBREW STRANDS OF JEWISH TRADITION AND HAVE A DIRECT CORRELATION TO OCCULT JUDAISM.
REMEMBER THE MYSTERY OF THE SHEMITAH WHICH SUPPOSEDLY WAS TO TAKE EFFECT ELUL 29, 2015/ SEPT 13TH, 2015? DID THE U.S.A. AND GLOBAL ECONOMY COLLAPSE LIKE MR. CAHN PREDICTED? THE ANSWER IS A BIG NO! It was an elaborate HOAX. And it eventually fizzled out like the Y2K hoax. The only people who benefited the most from this BIG MULTI MILLION $ HOAX WAS MR. CAHN AND HIS NETWORK OF RELIGIOUS JOKERS. And let's not forget his publisher.

WHILE THIS CONVERGENCE WAS TAKING PLACE AMONG THEM 3 THINGS WERE UNFOLDING SIMULTANEOUSLY: 1)THE TALK SHOW HOSTS WERE BOOSTING THEIR TELEVISION RATINGS 2)THEY WERE RAKING IN MILLIONS OF $ FROM GULLIBLE CHRISTIANS IN THE FORM OF DONATIONS, AND 3)JONATHAN CAHN AND HIS PUBLISHER WERE MAKING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN BOOK SALES AND OTHER PRODUCTS ASSOCIATED WITH HIS MYSTERIES. THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY AN INDUSTRY OF RELIGIOUS PROFESSIONAL FRAUDS.  FOR MORE DETAILS WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW EXPOSING JONATHAN CAHN'S SHEMITAH SCAM.
 As we had seen previously with the blood moons, many made a profit through misapplying scripture and intentionally misleading others to the meaning of what was taking place.






Some Biblical quotes for the reader to ponder:

Deuteronomy 13:1-5

Worshiping Other Gods

13 [a]If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. That prophet or dreamer must be put to death for inciting rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. That prophet or dreamer tried to turn you from the way the Lord your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.

"But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the LORD has not spoken?’— when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word that the LORD has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need not be afraid of him." (Deuteronomy 18:20-22)

The warning in the above scriptural passages is urgently needed for today. Some of God's people are so enamored by the supernatural that they are ready to receive anyone who demonstrates supernatural power or divine revelation knowledge as necessarily being a true servant of God. But the passages quoted above indicates that this attitude is UN SCRIPTURAL & DANGEROUS.

To get the full picture we need to combine the above two passages( Deuteronomy 13:1-5 &  Deuteronomy 18: 20-22)  that clearly show us how to identify a false prophet like Jonathan Cahn.  

The first passage warns us  against a prophet who gives us a supernatural sign that is fulfilled, but at the same time teaches disobedience or disloyalty towards God. The second passage warns that a prophet who makes some supernatural prediction  that is not fulfilled is a false prophet. 

By induction we  arrive at the following conclusion: A TRUE PROPHET OF GOD IS ONE WHO GIVES A SUPERNATURAL SIGN OR MAKES A PREDICTION THAT IS FULFILLED, BUT WHO ALSO TEACHES LOYALTY TO GOD AND HIS WORD.  JONATHAN CAHN'S HARBINGER OF THE SHEMITAH NEVER CAME TO FRUITION. THEREFORE BY BIBLICAL DEFINITION JONATHAN CAHN IS A FALSE PROPHET!
 
Another method the false prophets use to keep their following after the time for the prophecy has come and gone, is to say that the precise timing of the prophecy can change (even though they previously put a date on it). They say the event will still happen but of course it never does unless its fulfillment in time is obvious. If gullible people are going to believe these type of excuses then how can any prophet ever be proven false?  

If a professing christian gives a supernatural sign or prophetic prediction that is not fulfilled, he/she needs to immediately take the following steps:

1)Publicly acknowledge that  the sign or prediction is totally false

2) Ask forgiveness from all Christians that were deceived 

3) If people who were deceived  suffered loss or damages, do everything possible to make amends and   restitution 

AS OF THE TIME OF THIS POSTING JONATHAN CAHN HAS  NOT  SATISFIED THE ABOVE 3 CONDITIONS.

Here is a segment from an article by Berit Kjos about Jonathan Cahn.

Criticism: "It is stated that Jonathan Cahn `says that Zohar, an extra biblical, mystical source from which the occultic and mystical Kabbalah is derived, greatly influenced his writing.'"

Cahn's 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, in Bible commentaries, apologetics, works such as The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah," etc....

I MAKE THE FOLLOWING QUOTATION FROM TED W. PIKE'S BOOK "ISRAEL OUR DUTY OUR DELIMMA" FROM PAGE 103: " The Kabbalah at this time was a Babylonian brew which included such occult features as REINCARNATION, NECROMANCY, CONJURATION, ASTRAL PROJECTION, COOPERATION WITH DEMONS, ASTROLOGY, NUMEROLOGY, AND A VAST SYSTEM FOR THE USE OF CHARMS, AMULETS & INCANTATIONS". In short, most of what was distinctive of BABYLONIAN & EGYPTIAN SORCERY WAS INCLUDED IN THE ZOHAR! Even today virtually all occult systems (especially THEOSOPHICAL ONES) and practices, including WITCHCRAFT & SATANISM, borrow heavily from the KABBALAH(AS PRESERVED IN THE ZOHAR) in their rituals and symbolism".

Writings — There are always some extra-Biblical writings which are considered equal to or superior to the Bible. The Mormons have their Pearl of Great Price. The Children of God look to the letters of their founder, Moses David (David Berg). The prophetic proclamations of Herbert W. Armstrong are revered as scripture by many Armstrongites. The Jehovah’s Witnesses have their own eccentric “translation” of the Scriptures. It is actually a version that simply rewords all the verses that conflict with their theology.  And Jonathan Cahn has The Zohar and The Babylonian Talmud as his extra-biblical writings to unlock bogus mysteries.

Many cult leaders claim to have a direct pipeline to God. The teachings of cult leaders often change and, hence, they need new revelations to justify such changes. In view of this deluge of prophetic counterfeits, believers have an unparalleled need for a deeper understanding of authentic Christianity. For it is impossible to recognize a prophetic fraud unless we have an understanding of what is prophetically genuine. Error can only be correctly measured over against the truth of God's inerrant word.

The fact is, cult leaders are NOTORIOUS SCRIPTURE TWISTERS. When dealing with cults, one must keep in mind that they are always built not upon what the bible teaches, but upon what the FOUNDERS/LEADERS OF THE RESPECTIVE CULTS SAY THE BIBLE TEACHES! And such is the case with many of Jonathan Cahn's bogus mysteries and apologetics.

DEAR CHRISTIAN VIEWER: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. JEWISH GNOSTICISM IS BEING SUBTLY IMPORTED INTO MAINSTREAM CHRISTIANITY. DON'T ALLOW YOUR ETERNAL DESTINY TO BE PLACED IN JEOPARDY!


I FOUND THESE TWO WEBSITES WHICH I BELIEVE SHEDS MORE LIGHT ON HOW JONATHAN CAHN DEVELOPED HIS CONCEPT TO HIS NEW BOOK:

Book of Mysteries
Ancient  text found among the Dead Sea Scrolls from the mysterious Essene cult...
