Shemitah, Schlemazel: Operating In False Prophecy

Shemitah, Schlemazel: Operating In False Prophecy

After reading a post titled, “The Shemitah and the Shaking to Come” I realized many disturbing things about this contrived Shemitah “prophecy.” First, and most disturbing is Jonathan Cahn has now set himself up as a prophet. If you actually study the Bible you would know prophets were chosen by the Most High, they did not choose themselves.


I have said that I believe America is rapidly advancing toward calamity – that we have crossed the line in our apostasy and defiance of God. I’ve warned that if America continues in its present course, if there’s no return to God, its crown as head of nations will be removed and that I believe a great shaking is coming to this nation and the world.

Jonathan Cahn


Cahn (and I refuse to call Him Rabbi: Matthew 23:8) is now warning people America is going to be judged. He has now appointed himself as a prophet where he is warning people (through book sales) a “great shaking” is coming. Let’s make sure we understand something people, when the Most High chose a prophet EVERYTHING they DISTINCTLY prophesied happened or will happen.

They did not prophecize with an escape clause where they said things like judgement is coming or . . .  nothing might happen. That is not the Holy Spirit talking but a man with an agenda talking so he can build a book empire.  Cahn has now set the table where anyone can claim they are a prophet and make vague prophecies that can be reset to span into the next book. Can you say, “A sucker is born everyday?”



I notice how Cahn does not connect America as the subject of Isaiah 47. As if we needed him to put the pieces together for us while Isaiah has not only told us how America operates but how America will be destroyed. We must remember Isaiah (a real prophet) prophesied and did not try to sell his prophecy. ANYONE selling the Word of the Most High is in fact a MONEY CHANGER in the Temple.

We all know this is the ONLY time Christ displayed righteous anger at men who profited off Temple teachings . . . this included the Pharisees who were getting kickbacks. I see the foundation of a book empire built on vague prophecy. I have never seen a prophecy like this where it can potentially be never ending! How do you think Christ would react to Cahn’s teachings?



There is a phrase, “Birds of a feather flock together” which means like minded people find each other. Let’s take a look at who Cahn has been known to “flock” with in the name of Yeshua. I do not know if many of you have weened yourselves off of Benny Hinn but he is one of the most crooked deceptive preachers on the earth. Cahn has flocked with Benny Hinn in the name of Yeshua.

He should be repudiating men like Hinn but Cahn’s agenda is to promote himself . . . by any means necessary. Cahn, by using his Play-Doh prophecy has basically rubbed elbows with extreme MONEY CHANGERS like: Benny Hinn, Jim Bakker, and other “anointed” men peddling “pray water” for $19.95. If you cannot see this is a BUSINESS well you are trapped in a state of delusion. Cahn has tailored his view of America to paint a picture America’s doom is based on recent or present behaviors away from the Most High.

He leaves out America has been practicing witchcraft and sorcery (drugs) on a global scale. The Most High has already judged America from outside the time space continuum. There is no back peddling out of this by America. Cahn, is either ignorant to this are purposely not calling America what she really is spiritually . . . a dirty witch who has used witchcraft to become a super power.



Cahn is perpetuated the false notion America can pray its way out of judgement. A true prophet like Isaiah has told us “Mystery Babylon” will in fact fall and this has nothing to do with a Shemitah cycle. The Most High is going to drop it like its hot when He is ready . . . not a Shemitah cycle with a date range. The only thing that needs to happen for false prophecy to prevail is for men who know the truth, to do nothing.


This should be called the “Home Shopping Network for Christ”


Please note how this so called prophet is oblivious to the fact America has been infiltrated and most likely fell when President Kennedy was murdered. The whole moral fabric shifted after his death. What Cahn has done without being challenged or peer reviewed (because he is not a prophet) is psychologically planted seeds of a new way to prophesize. Here is the Cahn prophetic formula:

Cahn Shemitah Prophecy = Something BIG Happens + Nothing Will Happen + Something Big Will Happen in the Future/Book Sales

As you can see by this formula he really has not said anything of substance except read my next book and the formula will continue. Cahn, is psycho-babbler where he sets you up with his prophecy while telling you not to be concerned with dates. Then he segues into all the key times and events of past Shemitah! He even goes on to say, “We cannot be dogmatic about timing, and that nothing has to take place on a particular date or season, or according to any set calendar, or even as God has done before.”


Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God. (2 Corinthians 2:17)


My question after reading this is: “Why are you even talking then?” Cahn, is targeting people who are not Bible savvy and cannot see the fallacy in this whole Cahn book profit generation marketing campaign. You realize Cahn just told you NOTHING has to add up or even happen based on Biblical precedence! Meaning Cahn is now the master of the prophecy. Cahn is making up his own rules as he goes which makes him a false prophet.



Can you imagine Ezekiel or Jeremiah prophesying like this? The Most High is DIRECT and means what He says. His prophets would accurately say what exactly would happen. Can you imagine if Cahn filled in for Moses? The people would still be slaves because Pharaoh would say, “Even my seers are more accurate than you! I am supposed to wait around to see the POWER of your God?” Cahn, has made a mockery of true prophetic behavior and integrity.

Cahn, is correct people need to get right with the Most High but what are his solutions for this? Anybody can make a sound bite but is he really teaching what the people need to do? America has already been judged outside the time/space continuum and to the Most High this means it already happened! Remember, this is a Supreme Being who lives simultaneously in the past, present, and future.

Please note how Cahn does not tell America to tear down her many idols or to turn away from witchcraft and sorcery. Since Cahn is not doing this, what is his real purpose? His real purpose is to sell: books, DVDs, and other forms of wealth generation. Remember who Cahn flocks with and you will see these men created huge fortunes by speaking the name of Christ. This is really about money.



I am flabbergasted on why Cahn believes the Most High is going to inject His Holy Spirit into the stock market. Now the Lord is supposed to be manipulating the stock market when we all know it is the Federal Reserve (Rothschild Bank) which is doing this. Again, he paints the same fear-porn picture America is in danger of judgement when New York City is the home the largest Pagan statue Ishtar; when She has been an apostasy to the Most High. The same America which has turned the Super Bowl concert into a mega ritual stealing the energy of over 100 million people.


That God expects or will impose a Shemitah upon any nation other than Israel has no scriptural basis.



In his book “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” Cahn shares biblical patterns which, at times, he claims have stunningly precise manifestations. However, the expectation the Most High will impose a Shemitah upon any nation other than Israel has no scriptural basis. So, Cahn has taken liberties to apply the Shemitah as he sees fit. Ironically, he applies the Shemitah to America home of witchcraft and sorcery! Does that even make sense?

The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end? (Jeremiah 5:31)

Cahn also paints a picture where he believes the Most High shows His POWER through a “massive stock market day crash” on September 13, 2015. OMG! A DAY CRASH!!! What is next a TWO DAY crash? Couldn’t the Most High bring everything down? Isaiah (again a true prophet) tells us when the Most High brings America down it will be in 60 minutes. So who is right here? Isaiah a true Biblical prophet? Or Cahn who flocks with Benny Hinn and Jim Bakker? These men are known MONEY CHANGERS in the Temple and shamelessly peddle solutions based off their fear porn. These men are the peers of Cahn.


Jonathan Cahn peddles his scripturally unsound book with the King of the Snakes


Cahn supplements his false Shemitah application to America with fluffy words and even claims to be sounding the trumpet for America to repent. Cahn does not even admit 9/11 was an inside job but claims it was “God’s Judgment” when it was a mega-ritual blood sacrifice orchestrated by the elite. How can Cahn say it was the Lord who was responsible for 9/11? Many of us have come to the research conclusion the elite orchestrated 9/11 for the right to invade the Middle East and steal large sums of money.

Cahn does not address this element at all. He only paints a picture to support his false application of the Shemitah cycle to America. When Matthew 5:45 tells us, “so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” This sounds like a spiritual law meaning the Most High is behind everything even what is perceived to be evil.

Cahn has now given himself carte blanche to apply the Shemitah cycle to any nation he chooses now! The problem in a nutshell is most people do not study their Bibles enough to understand false prophecy. These false prophets are profiting off man-made conjecture just like the man-made doctrine of the Pharisees. Yeshua was repulsed by the hypocrisy of the Pharisees in His time and I feel sorry for them all when He returns.



Cahn, said, “The collapse of China’s financial realm alone constituted one of the greatest long-term stock market crashes in history and, by itself, would make 2015 one of the most significant of Shemitahs.” Please note spell checker does not even recognize the plural form of the word Shemitahs! Do you see what I am saying now? Let’s recap the Shemitah is originally and only for Israel.

Now Cahn has applied it to America and now China that America did not have a “great shaking.” Iceland is not part of the Shemitah because they kicked all of the criminal bankers out so they are “Shemitah” proof. Cahn is clearly conning people on the true subject of the Shemitah not this cookie cutter approach he uses. He even takes the liberty of pluralizing Shemitah to Shemitahs like boxing promoter Don King who coins his own words. These are all unscriptural rumblings from Cahn’s need to turn his books into annuities.
There is absolutely no scriptural basis to identify America and China in a Shemitah.

The real crime here and what Yeshua demonstrated in the Temple is that the presence of the money changers corrupted and detoured you from understanding spiritual teachings and laws. Christ was not concerned with the economic landscape of the Roman Empire. He did not teach His Disciples to obsess over economies or to be fearful of eating. Yeshua taught you how to obtain all things by using the spiritual laws. This is why He used the example of the birds and we are even more important to the Father.

Christ also taught, “Give to Caesar to what is Caesar’s and to God with is God’s. He made a distinct separation between the two and an attempt to merge them together is antichrist. Yeshua showed us His Father’s Kingdom has nothing to do with the kingdoms of this world. To direct our attention to a “mystery” wrapped up in worldly affairs is not what our Great Teacher taught us.


Then Jesus said to them, "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." And they were amazed at him. (Mark 12:17)


What makes Cahn any different from the men he flocks with to peddle the Lord’s Word for his own financial gain? Cahn’s mere presence on the Benny Hinn show is a confirmation they share feathers and are of the same flock. Paul also drew a distinction between the Disciples and those people who use the Word to make profit; you see this represents a conflict of interest. It shows these men’s intentions are divided by two desires. One is to prophet and the other is to profit. The proverbial writing is on the wall, but people are so desperate for a spiritual tutor because they stopped reading the Bible itself; which warns us how these very people operate.

No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. (2 Timothy 2:4)

If you really think about prophecy (which is history written before it happens) you would come to the conclusion it has already been inscribed in the Bible! If prophecy has already been written what is the purpose of a vague prophecy like Cahn’s Schlemazel? This is a prophecy that can be applied to any country at his whim. I do not know about you but milk and gas prices certainly have not changed in my town.

Why people are desperate for the “end” to come these peddlers of the Word are certainly not; and plotting on their next book by now. You see these books will never end until the people wise up. Cahn practices double speak which is the art of deliberately disguising, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. Cahn, tells people to repent and turn to God and then goes on to tell you everything you need to be worrying about. When none of it happens you must ask the question who benefited from this?

Certainly, the author of the book but who else? As a guest on a “Christian” show, Cahn peddled his Schlemazel in conjunction with a product sold as a Schlemazel solution. This is called a mutually beneficial business arrangement which took planning between both parties. So as the men/women feigned interest in the Schlemazel, the sales report was the real interest. It may even go deeper than this and Cahn has financial interest in the market where he benefited. This would another conflict of interest if true!/p>

What exactly does any of this have to with what Yeshua taught us and demonstrated to us? How does any concern over the Schlemazel push us forward spiritually? I had a colleague share with me his grandparents pulled all their money from the stock market as a result of Cahn’s Schlemazel. They took short losses because of a fear of total loss, yet the market is still going despite the “great shaking” Cahn claimed in his Schlemazel.



The most important lesson in this Schlemazel is there was great expectation of doom based on it. The whole spiritual thought process is a deviation from the teachings Yeshua shared on where our minds should be. Yeshua who is a Divine Being was not interested in Roman issues He came to teach the way to master spirit. People should think long and hard about this because the Schlemazel will be back soon with a new interpretation and spin. Remember, be careful who you flock with because I can tell you who you are by your friend’s feathers.
