Jonathan Cahn: Is the Church Sleeping Through God’s Prophetic Timeline?

Jonathan Cahn agrees with many fellow believers that our God is a God of mercy. But the bestselling author of “The Josiah Manifesto” also believes that He is a God of justice, and that His judgment is going to fall on America for it’s sins, including those of the church.

Many Christians in this day want to believe that the Lord is, as podcast interviewer and deliverance minister Isaiah Saldivar says, a “real cuddly, cute, real comfortable Jesus.” There is no fear or reverence of God in the American church, and many in our country and even the church have mocked God and “spit in his face,” thinking that God will be silent and not respond.

Galatians 6:7-8 reads, “Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows from the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.”

America and parts of the church within it have sown to their own flesh with corruption, murder and outright debauchery.

“Remember, it’s what we sowed, not what God sowed,” Cahn told Saldivar during the recent podcast. “This is not God’s will. God wants mercy, but He has got to oppose evil. He cannot say it’s OK. That would be evil to say it’s OK. He is saying it, and the Bible is true.

“It’s not only the time, it’s also the place. When Jeremiah spoke to the Valley of Hinnom, he said it’s going to come back to this valley because where you shed the blood, that’s where it’s coming back. Do we have a valley of Hinnom? Yes, we do, and that is New York because New York not only introduced abortion to the continent, but it’s also been the capital of abortion in America. More blood has been shed there than any other place. When the plague came to America, it came through New York and that became the focal point of that whole thing. The Bible says judgment comes to the gate. Well, what is the gate of America? It’s New York.”

Biblical prophecy is coming to pass in the United States, but a great deal of the American church is missing—or sleeping through—God’s prophetic timeline. And it’s a subject that Cahn addresses well in “The Josiah Manifesto.”

“It’s absolutely shocking to see the parallels line up,” Saldivar says. “I hate to say it because it’s cliché, but you just can’t make this stuff up. This is such a divine timeline. It makes sense of what a lot of people have tried to figure out or make sense of. We see all of the Old Testament prophets crying out for what was happening to the innocent, crying out for the people of God in bondage. Here we are again, thousands of years later, and you know God has, praise the Lord, raised you [Cahn] up as a prophetic voice in this hour to reveal what He’s doing in His plan.”

Satan is certainly not being lukewarm in his attacks on America and the church. But the church, somehow, has remained lukewarm in its response.

But now is the time, Cahn says—the defining moment—for the church to raise its voice and become unapologetic for its zeal for God. It’s time for many in the church to “break their altars,” those things in culture that have captured our attention and taken it away from our one true God.

“One of things about that I put in ‘The Josiah Manifesto’ is that Jesus was born for His time,” Cahn says. “He was actually prophesied centuries before. I’m saying He was born for His age. And that is true for us. We are born for this age and if the age is more dramatic with darkness—it’s more radical in the dark—then we’re born to be more radically light. This is the most exciting time.

“People are praying, ‘I wish I lived in Bible times.’ Congratulations. We’re in Bible times now. This is the final chapter. Rise to it because that’s what it’s all about. That’s what Josiah did and God used him. God’s doing to do it with you, too.” {eoa}
