Apprising Ministries has told you about Jonathan Cahn and The Harbinger, his book dabbling in Jewish gnosticism, in pieces like The Harbinger: Prophetic Fact Or Fickle Fiction; and brought you what others are saying in Discerning Reviewers Of “The Harbinger”.

Gary Gilley sums up my own opinion very well when he writes:

Cahn determines that Isaiah 9:10-11 contains a hidden second prophecy directed not to ancient Israel but to modern America.  At this point the author massages Scripture and current events in an attempt to prove that God’s judgment on the United States has been hiding in these verses from the day they were given by Isaiah, but have now been unlocked by the careful investigation of Cahn.

Nothing could be further from the truth and, even more importantly, once someone decides they can cherry-pick verses at will, change the meaning of these texts to fit his theories and use random hermeneutical methods, anything can be “proven.”

Bottomline: The Harbinger…does not in reality discover a mysterious Old Testament prophecy about America…Read as a prophecy, it is dangerous. (source)

Unfortunately, as I showed you in Jonathan Cahn Harbinger Of Discernment Gone Wild this book is now even straining friendships and causing a serious rift within the camp of those of us involved with online apologetics and discernment ministry, which is rather sad.

With this in mind then, I’ll point you to the below audio clip from a recent Fighting for the Faith program where Christian apologist Chris Rosebrough of Pirate Christian Radio meticulously strips away the superstitions surrounding Jonathan Cahn’s fables.
