The Lord has sent a message against Jacob; it will fall on Israel. All the people will know it" Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria"who say with pride and arrogance of heart, "The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars." - Isaiah 9:8-10 (NIV)
It is quite frankly embarrassing to have to report on things like this but as the Con man likes to point out in the video linked above, he has over 800,000 YouTube followers. Jonathan Cahn has been fleecing the flock for years now with books designed to scare believers into supporting Republican politicians. He does so in this video as well. The backstory is that Cahn put out a "mysteries" video after the Hamas attack. I say "mysteries" because that is his modus operandi. Everything is a mystery that he has unlocked for you to lap up. He even put out a video discussing the mysteries of "Barbie" after the movie came out. This all serves his dominionist masters, the true beneficiaries of his work. Anyway, the Hamas video had a small section where Cahn claims that the attack was part of a 2000-year prophecy from Jesus and the very clear inference he made was that the attack is because the Jews rejected Jesus as their Messiah.
Rolling Stone, supporting Israel, found the comments disgusting. Now, biblically Cahn may indeed have a point that Israel does not see peace because they rejected their Prince of Peace but intricate biblical truths we do not expect from the secular media. In fact, the bible says that the things of God are foolishness to those who are perishing so why is Cahn so mad at Rolling Stone? Because they quoted him. Correctly. In true Republican snowflake fashion, he petulantly put out a response video, linked above, to refute these dastardly members of the woke leftist mob. I say that because Cahn does, throughout this video making it clear this is not a defense video but more NAR dominionist propaganda when Cahn tries to make believers feel that Rolling Stone and the world hates them just because they love the bible. Except that is not exactly true in this story. Cahn is as usual, trying to con you. Let us reason once more together through the lowlights of the above video. Let us start however with the small section from the Hamas video, which Rolling Stone was referencing:
"What happened in Israel is part of a 2000-year-old prophecy. Of the Messiah. The Jewish people have been waiting for the Messiah for 2000 years but what if the Jewish Messiah already came and most of them missed it. Then they would become like sheep without a shepherd and when the wolves came to the flock, they would be helpless. When Jesus gazed out at Jerusalem He wept and he said Jerusalem, oh Jerusalem, He said your peace is hidden. And for 2000 years the Jewish people have been seeking for peace but no matter what they do they can't find it and when it looks like they are about to have peace as it did with the peace talks then something happens to take it away. Because Yeshua just happens to be their Messiah, their Prince of Peace and without Him there is no peace. Only when they turn to Him who is the hope of Israel, will they find their peace." - Jonathan Cahn's Hamas Video
Now perhaps Rabbi Con does not understand how the English language works but words have meaning. Your intent is meaningless. This entire portion was preceded with the words - "What happened in Israel is part of a 2000-year-old prophecy." That means the rest of what follows is related to the introductory line and what happened in Israel is the Hamas attack. It is perfectly reasonable and fair to read his comments as blaming the attack on the fact that Israel rejected Christ. Cahn tries his hardest to minimize it by saying this was only 3% of the video, which largely dealt with his usual "mysteries" nonsense but that is irrelevant. He said this and Rolling Stone objected. That apparently hurt the Rabbi's delicate feelings, so he is lashing out here in the usual Cahn smarminess, but his defense ends up only trying to serve his dominionist puppet masters. He claims that Rolling Stone labeled him as MAGA because they want to put Christians in a box to cancel them, more right-wing dog whistles. Cahn now quotes the article and then comments:
"In a new "prophetic" video, Cahn calls the initial Hamas attack "demonic" but insists that the massacre of some 1400 Jews has deep roots - stemming from the Israelis' stubborn refusal"to accept Jesus." - Rolling Stone
