Rabbi Cahn Tell Americans to "Prepare"

I believe one thing that we can all agree on is that America has become complacent and apathetic. We simply can't imagine a time when we won't be the world's super-power, can print our own money and in our wildest dreams can't believe we will ever be at a place where we have to wait in line at a grocery store hoping to find some they are doing in Venezuela as we speak.

But if world history is any indicator and if one reads and believes Bible history...America appears to be heading for calamity, chaos and judgment....and Rabbi Cahn (a Christian, Jewish Rabbi) tells us that we should be preparing our hearts, minds and food shelves for what may be coming sooner than most people realize.

Author and Bible teacher Jonathan Cahn says he has been so swamped with questions and concerns about the looming end of the Shemitah year on Sept. 13 that he can’t answer them all.

“We have been deluged with people calling, emailing, asking questions from all over the country, wanting to know what’s happening. So we decided to put out a video,” Cahn told WND via email.

In the message, posted to YouTube, Cahn calls for a period of national prayer and repentance leading up to the pivotal month of September.

He also issued a new warning about a “desecration” that often precedes judgment and is already present in American society. He calls for Christians to prepare for persecution and get ready to stand for God in a coming period of strife that will increasingly be devoid of “gray areas” or middle ground.

In the video, he says his main theme continues to be that of judgment visiting America. This will bring a “shaking” in the financial and economic realms. These tremors may spread beyond the economic realm.

Watch U.S.-Israel relations

The harbingers of coming judgment that Cahn first wrote about in 2012 in his New York Times-best-seller, “The Harbinger,” have continued long past the writing of that story, he said. The Tree of Hope, a spruce or cedar that in the Bible symbolizes a nation’s strength, was planted at Ground Zero in New York following 9/11 but it withered and died. It was finally uprooted on Passover 2014.

The new office tower built to replace the Twin Towers opened earlier this year only to have the first tenants overrun by an infestation of vermin.

But one of the most critical harbingers for America is its relationship with Israel, Cahn said.

“The relations between America and Israel are at its worst. This is a dangerous sign for America. America is now pressing for a deal that Israel says will put Israel in danger. That is also ominous,” Cahn said. “All these things: Israel, the harbingers, the apostasy, the Shemitah, all these things are converging, and we need to take heed now.”

Pope Francis, the 266th pope, is also coming to the United States to meet with President Obama on Sept. 23, the 266th day of the year. He will address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24 and then deliver a keynote speech Sept. 25 at the United Nations in New York. The pope, who has already called for the need for global government to fight climate change and poverty, is expected to give a ringing endorsement to the U.N.’s new global agenda titled “Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” This document was created by a 27-person “high level panel” that consisted of only one American – John Podesta, a member of the elite Trilateral Commission and the former climate-change czar for President Obama.

The Senate is also under a deadline to approve the Iran nuclear deal by the end of September.

Focus on dates, miss the big picture

Cahn implores those concerned about the Shemitah not to focus on dates but on getting their own houses in order. He offers practical advice on how to prepare for the coming “shaking,” both physically and spiritually.

He said he gave dates in his book, “The Mystery of the Shemitah” to show that God often works, especially in economic matters, according to the seven-year cycle given to Moses as Mount Sinai and recorded in Deuteronomy.

While this is something “to be aware of the signs of the times,” the bigger issue for America is that judgment is imminent. The U.S. clearly “crossed a line,” he said, with the Supreme Court decisions on abortion, removing prayer from schools and most recently in its arrogant redefinition of the God-given covenant of marriage.

“The first caution is, God doesn’t have to do anything. He is sovereign. He doesn’t have to work according to our understanding, He is beyond our understanding. Nothing has to happen in September or the autumn. It could be very uneventful,” Cahn said. “And if nothing happens, well then, what will we do? We will praise God, we will be bold for the Lord, we will spread the gospel, we will stand as witnesses for God and we will glorify His name.”

God hasn’t given him any secret knowledge as to what, if anything, will happen on or near the date of Sept. 13 or Elul 29, the once-every-seven years biblical day of reckoning when all debts and credits were wiped clean.

“Either way, I believe a great shaking is coming and it is wise that we be aware,” he said.

"So I am calling for prayer, repentance, to commit this time for seeking God, in your life, seeking God individually, seeking God as a church, seeking God as a Bible study, seeking God as a movement, but devoting this time to be in prayer every day, in special prayer, of repentance, to get right, to get out of your life that which needs to be out and get in what has to be in."

Cahn is also joining WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah in promoting the third annual 9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance.

Farah encourages pastors to open their churches on Friday, Sept. 11, to allow both their community of members and their communities at large to gather and pray. There will also be three national repentance conference calls that day, with details at Readers can go to the website and sign up to pray. They are also encouraged to let their pastors, congregations, and friends know about this event.

'We are in critical times'

In the Old Testament, which often provides clues or spiritual foreshadowing of things to come under the New Testament, the priests of God had to first get things right in their own lives before they could minister on behalf of others. They would ritually cleanse themselves with water. Only then could they enter the Holy of Holies and intercede for the nation.

"Get to that higher ground, to bless God. This is our time to be ready, no matter what comes in September, autumn, or not," Cahn told his listeners.

"The fact is America is in danger here," he continued. "America is progressing on a dangerous course away from God. And we are in critical times. We are at a crossroads in every way. For the society, the culture, the civilization, the church, to be praying for this time. And to declare we will make up our minds we will not bow down to Baal, we will not compromise, we will not give in to political correctness. No matter what, we will not turn away from God, no matter what anybody says. We will follow the Lord, and His ways, only."


We have been saying for the last 7-8 years that Christians aren't supposed to go dig a cave in Montana and wait for the end of the about going out and buying cans of chili, peaches, freeze-dried milk,  and some boxes of Bisquick so that if a major disruption DOES come to America before Jesus comes for us that we can be a blessing to our neighbors and friends who WILL BE standing around clueless and confused.

We can see the writing on the wall (read Daniel if you don't know where this saying comes from) let's all ask God how he wants us EACH to be SALT AND LIGHT in our own unique way as we continue to lift up our heads and wonder if our "redemption is drawing near."
