Cahn on Trump the Harbinger

Jonathan Cahn

Can President Trump make America great again?

This and other crucial questions about the destiny of America were asked of Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn on our television program Christ in Prophecy. Jonathan is the author of the best-selling books The Harbinger and The Book of Mysteries. He is also the spiritual leader of Beth Israel Worship Center in Wayne, New Jersey. In one of our 2013 issues of the Lamplighter magazine, we featured Jonathan on the cover as one of the prophetic voices God has anointed to warn our nation of impending judgment.

[Note: Jonathan’s answer below has been edited slightly for grammar and clarity.]

Trump the Harbinger

Jonathan Cahn: Let me tell you something that many people don’t know. I wrote my book The Harbinger a few years ago, long before Donald Trump announced he was going to run for President. In The Harbinger I was led to add that Donald Trump is himself a harbinger. People don’t realize that Trump can be found in my first book in the chapter called “The Tower.” He is part of this mystery.

Remember how in The Harbinger it describes that the people of Israel had been chastised? They had been warned. And, did they respond in repentance? No! They bragged, “We will come back stronger. We will become greater than before!” Sure, it’s fine to become greater than before, but definitely not without God.

Donald Trump echoes the very response Israel made when God disciplined them and then called the nation back to repentance. “We are going to be great by our own power because we are America!”

When we look to become great without God, we are committing the exact same sin Israel committed, and that’s the template of the harbinger. The only way America can become great again is if America returns to the God who made America great in the first place. If we don’t, we are repeating Israel’s sin.

I believe with Donald Trump that God has granted the United States a window of opportunity to repent. The question is, “What are we going to do about it as believers in Christ?” Are we going to just revel saying, “Okay, great, now Christians have a little relief?” No, if we don’t repent and promote a revival in this land, the nation is finished. Christians need to be praying for a national revival. The only way any nation becomes truly great is by turning to God.

Americans have been waiting for Trump and other leaders to lead this nation in a direction towards God, but really the culture has to take the lead, and we Christians have to impact our society by driving the culture under God’s leadership. We have to pray for and lead a revival. Jesus tasked Christians with this duty when He declared, “You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world.” America could never have gotten this dark and rotten if the Church was fully doing what Jesus commanded us to do — be salt and light.

What You Do To Israel

I believe one of the reasons God gave us this window of opportunity with President Trump is because of the way in which President Obama treated Israel and the Jewish people. The Abrahamic Covenant is an absolute promise by God. Whatever one does to Israel gets done to them.

Just a year before the 2016 Presidential elections, then President Obama tried to intervene in a sovereign election. He tried to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. During that last Israeli election, everyone thought that Netanyahu was finished. Every liberal outlet like CNN was celebrating. But then, Netanyahu won, and the Mainstream Media went dead. They blacked the news out because they didn’t want to cover his victory. Finally Netanyahu said like, “If nobody is going to announce my reelection then I’m going to announce I just won myself.”

And so, what happens when a nation intervenes in the election of Israel? Well, God will intervene in your election. He will give you a surprise by ending your legacy. So, absolutely, President Obama got what he gave.

  • that was great. past president George w Bush convinced Israel to give up the Gaza strip,and we were hit with hurricane Katrina.

  • It seems so many churches stay away from end time teaching. Thank you for sharing what God has revealed to you about the end times with us.

  • I am currently guardedly optomistic because there are more evangelical Christians in high government leadership positions than we have seen in our lifetime. This is much higher than the % which evangelicals hold in American society.
    However, REVIVAL is the key to everything. I remember when GW Bush was elected, and evangelicals breathed a sign of relief, expecting the government to safeguard the America we grew up in. And what happened? His administration betrayed Israel and I knew we were in trouble! Culturally, we have gone down the sewer more rapidly with each succeeding administration.
    So here we are at the crossroads of God’s gracious reprieve. REPENTANCE AND LEADING THE WAY TO REVIVAL should be on the forefront of every Christian’s mind and motivation. This is my prayer as well!

  • I think people need to research and listen to your 4 cd series “the PARADIGM”; it is very newsworthy
    in modern terms; it is newsworthy and cutting edge; thank you very much as for showing and exposing how wicked Bill Clinton was in allowing any and all abortion at all Federal government levels (also the Lewinsky affair IN the white house) and his wife who was possibly running all of this and power hungry and flip-flopped on so many issues. The Lord helped us in this election; all the things that Obama continued (and both claiming they were Christians and killing babies like “whack a mole”).

  • Jews And Christians Work With Israel’s Biblical Godly Prophesies To Be Saved-
    By D.K.Milgrim-Heath©2018
    Jews and Christians work with Israel’s Biblical Godly prophesies to be saved-
    Then hopefully 9/11/2001’s USA’s Biblical Harbingers will be null and waived.
    President Trump is God’s Chosen one being shown prophetically he must lead-
    America’s become more godless back to God America – wake-up to succeed.
    All world faiths choosing being with the Judeo-Christian world helping world peace to be-
    Will help Israel and America jointly towards avoiding a biblical prophetic catastrophe.

    • It’s quite interesting to me how so many “Christians” focus on abortion. Abortion is not what will bring this country down. Those who have an abortion will answer for their choice and that choice will be between her and God for only God knows the heart of each of us. It is not abortion that will be the doom of this country. It is the attitude and behavior toward EVERYTHING ungodly and impure. The other Nations of the world watch America. America is looked upon as a “Christian” nation and other nations mimic and judge the ACTIONS of our nation. The sexual improprieties and rampant porn in this country is not unlike Sodom and Gomorrah. You scream about choice but fire and brimstone brought down cities who were all about adultery, homosexuality, bisexuality… you would do well by reading the book of Jude:

      Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother of James,
      To those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ:
      2 Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.
      3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. 4 For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
      5 Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
      8 In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings. 9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” 10 Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct—as irrational animals do—will destroy them.
      11 Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error; they have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion.
      12 These people are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm—shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. 13 They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.
      14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones 15 to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” 16 These people are grumblers and faultfinders; they follow their own evil desires; they boast about themselves and flatter others for their own advantage.
      17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. 18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” 19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
      20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
      22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
      24 To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— 25 to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

      • Those who have abortions will have to deal with it on their own personal terms with God, but those that legislate it, (like Canada for their liberal government members of Parliament and to get government student summer programs) while forcing it be taught in schools; this has placed the country under satans rule. So Abortion is the key, because it is the sacrificing of children to pagan gods/satan. The USA is going in the same direction if it doesn’t repent. As for Sodom and Gomorrah, you haven’t researched properly to know the evil that was within those places. The Bible tells the story, but you’re not reading between the lines and asking the right questions. Why was it the men of the town came to Lots door “demanding” the men be sent out to have relations with them? Didn’t you think that unusual? The reason they came and ‘demanded’ because Sodom has initiated laws stipulating that any man/men who entered would be required by law to have sex with those who wanted it. They even had beds situated throughout the city. That was discovers through archaeological references found. It wasn’t just an unholy act for which the men would be accountable but it was “law” which government initiated. That’s why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and that is why Abortion is the key. Legislated unholy laws forced or promoted onto the people are a truer evil worthy of destruction, which is completely different then personal sins which people will have to be held accountable before the Lord.

  • This is a question not a challenge why did you say the yud is a y or jwhen their is no J in the Hebrew alphabet in your new book The Book Of Mysteries

  • To me we should be spending time worshiping God and God alone as opposed to be looking for signs. Jesus said I will not give you a sign because you are children of your father. Look Jesus wants us to have a revival in our souls dealing with the evil that is in us and accept the kingdom of heaven prescribed for our well being. Ahavah, looking out for the well being of others even at the expense of self. That needs to be our focus not signs.

  • (If) there are Christians in the white house and congress, why are they not praying for GOD’s help instead of following the left and Satan’s ways???

  • Jonathan Cahn used to teach pre-tribulation rapture. My husband and I attended his former congregation in Garfield, NJ from 1993-1995. I was at a service when he compared the pre-tribulation Rapture with the Hebrew wedding. I sat there so fascinated, and to this day I believe it’s an amazing comparison!

    HOWEVER, Pastor Cahn, no longer holds to this view, and I feel deeply disappointed. We learned a lot from him, but I sense he has gone beyond biblical bounds and sometimes teaches passionate prophetic speculations. It saddens me to see him on Jim Bakker’s show frequently. Mr. Bakker sells “food buckets” and other paraphernalia to “survive the tribulation.”

    In addition, one lady who attended one of my home studies on Bible prophesy was scared stiff before attending. After the meeting where we studied the prophetic timeline of the pre-tribulation view, she later told me that she visited a church where they has apocalyptic preparation and guides to “trust God” for Christians/ believers during the great tribulation.
    I was surprised when she revealed it was Jonathan Cahn’s church, The New Jerusalem Center! I live 5 miles away, but I have never attended.

    It saddens me that he won’t admit in any interview that he used to teach the rapture and now he dodges the question as to where he stands on this issue.

    Anyway, I believe he knows the Lord, but as he gained great popularity and celebrity status over the years, seems he got a bit too bold and overconfident in some of his prophetic speculations. (In my opinion)
    But, By the GRACE of God, go I!!

    I am seriously considering and praying about setting up a prophecy conference here in northern New Jersey with “Christ in Prophecy.”
    Pastor Cahn’s church is the ONLY one who teaches “prophecy,” and to hold the conference at his large church would have been a good venue. Its too bad, his views are not in agreement with your ministry.

    However, if it is God’ s will. He will provide the perfect place! We need truth and light here in New Jersey. The church as been lulled to complacency and sleep.

    God bless your ministry! You’re all wonderful, but I love Dr. Reagan’s excitement and feisty passion!😃😃😃

    In His service,

    Kim P. Simpson

  • You Christian’s who have Jonathan Cahn on your shows and fawn over him don’t realize or care that he isn’t talking about you Christian’s , he’s talking about the Jews and when their kingdom and control of this world by the Jews will come about and the world will belong to the Jews and all that is in it.
    Enjoy your fantasy.
