Jonathan Cahn’s shemitah prophecy book predicts a financial collapse or “something” like it for America possibly in 2015 because he claims it is a Sabbath year. But is it? Does the Bible say God curses in Sabbath years? My review of Cahn’s latest book exposes the flaws in his theory, why you don’t have to worry about his predictions and what the real meaning of the shemitah is according to Scripture that he missed.
“The Harbinger” novel proposes that God has sent America nine omens or warnings of judgment starting with the 9/11 attacks. These “harbingers” include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and “vows” against God supposedly made by US leaders. Rabbi Cahn claims that in all this God is following the “prophetic warning pattern” of Isaiah 9:10 that leads to economic downfall if we do not repent. But is this a message from God or even accurate to how God speaks? When you compare this theory to the real pattern of warning and judgment that is spelled out not just in one verse to Israel but throughout the entire Bible, you can see for yourself whether America is in judgment or being warned of judgment just yet.
