Could the recent stock market collapse be a sign of the End Times? Jonathan Cahn unlocks the 3,000 year old “mystery of the Shemitah." Read Transcript


Gordon: FROM 9/11 TO

THE FINANCIAL CRISIS, WERE

THESE EVENTS FORETOLD IN

THE BIBLE?

AND WHAT DO ITS PAGES TELL

US ABOUT WHAT'S TO COME?

JONATHAN CAHN REVEALS THE

MYSTERY OF THE SHEMITAH.

ON TODAY'S "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

WELL, WELCOME TO THIS

SHOW.

IN SEPTEMBER 2001 THE

STOCK MARKET POSTED ITS

BIGGEST ONE-DAY DROP OF

ALL TIME.

AND THEN IN 2008, WHAT WE

THOUGHT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN

HAPPENED AGAIN, AND THIS

SEPTEMBER MARKS YET

ANOTHER SEVEN YEARS SINCE

THE LAST CRASH.

SO WHAT WILL WE WORLD

HEALTWITNESS?WILL WE WITNESS ANOTHER

COLLAPSE?

JONATHAN CAHN BELIEVES

SOMETHING IS GOING TO

HAPPEN, AND IT HAS BEEN

FORETOLD IN THE BIBLE.

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT

THERE EXISTS AN ANCIENT

MYSTERY THAT LIES BEHIND

THE EVENTS OF MODERN TIMES

THAT DETERMINES THE RISE

AND THE FALL OF THE STOCK

MARKET AND THE ECONOMY,

THE RISE AND COLLAPSE OF

NATIONS, THE DESTRUCTION

OF EMPIRES AND SUPER

POWERS, A MYSTERY MORE

THAN 3,000 YEARS OLD?

AND YET IT DETERMINES

GLOBAL CATACLYSMS, THE

TIMING OF WORLD WARS, THE

ATOMIC AGE, THE COLD WAR,

THE ATTACK OF 9/11, AND

MORE.

COULD A MYSTERY VEELD I REVEALED

IN MIDDLE EASTERN AREAS

REVEAL WHAT COULD BE THIS

COMING FALL.

COULD THIS BE SO PRECISE

IT HAS ORDAINED AND HAS

THE TIMING OF THE GREATEST

COLLAPSE IN WALL STREET

HISTORY, DOWN TO THE DATE,

THE YEARS, THE MONTHS, AND

THE HOURS?

WHAT IF WE COULD KNOW THE

HISTORY, THAT HAS BEEN

MOLDING OUR LIVES FROM THE

DAYS WE WERE BORN, FROM

THE EVENTS OF GLOBAL

PROPORTIONS, TO THE STATE

OF OUR BANK ACCOUNTS, OUR

PAST, OUR PRESENT AND THE

FUTURE, AND WHAT DOES IT

FORETELL CONCERNING WHAT

IS YET TO COME?

WHAT IS THIS MYSTERY?

IT'S CALLED THE MYSTERY OF

THE SHEMITAH.

Gordon: WELL, WELCOME

BACK TO "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

AND LET'S GET TO THE

QUESTION, WHAT IS THE

MYSTERY OF THE SHEMITAH?

EVERY SEVENTH DAY WAS A

SABBATH DAY, BUT EVERY

SEVENTH YEAR WAS THE

SABBATH YEAR, WHICH WAS

CALLED THE SHEMITAH.

DURING THAT SEVENTH YEAR,

THE LAND RESTS.

THERE IS NO BUYING OR

SELLING OF ANYTHING.

TOTAL SABBATH.

ON THE LAST DAY OF THE

SABBATH YEAR, ALUL 29 ON

THE HEBREW CALENDAR, THE

FINANCIAL REALM GETS WIPED

OUT.

ALL DEBT IS WIPED CLEAN.

ALL CREDIT IS WIPED CLEAN.

EVERYTHING.

THIS IS TO BE A BLESSING.

Gordon: IT LEADS TO

THE JUBILEE.

THE SEVENTH ONE LEADS

TO THE JUBILEE.

BUT WHEN ISRAEL TURNED

AWAY FROM GOD, THE

BLESSING OF THE SHEMITAH

TURNS INTO A SIGN OF

JUDGMENT.

IN THE DAYS OF JEREMIAH,

THE LAND RESTS FOR 70

YEARS, FOR THE SEVEN

SABBATHS OR SHEMITAHS.

SO THE QUESTION IS: COULD

THIS STILL HAPPEN AGAIN?

IT STRIKES THE FINANCIAL

REALM, THE ECONOMIC REALM,

AND THE REALM OF BLESSING.

AND THE ANSWER IS AN

AMAZING YES.

I'LL GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE:

IN THE LAST 40 YEARS,

THERE HAVE BEEN FIVE MAJOR

COLLAPSES, LONG-TERM

COLLAPSES IN THE STOCK

MARKET.

THE YEARS ARE 1973, '80,

'87, 2000, AND 2007.

AND EVERY ONE OF THEM IS

CONNECTED TO THE YEAR

BEFORE.

AND IN 1984 YOU HAD THE

GREATEST BOND MARKET

COLLAPSE.

SO YOU HAVE A COLLAPSE

EVERY TIME.

IT IS NOT JUST A SEVEN

YEAR CYCLE, BUT IT IS

ACTUALLY THE SEVENTH YEAR

OF THE BIBLICAL SHEMITAH,

WHICH CAN MEAN COLLAPSE,

WHEN YOU HAVE THESE THINGS

HAPPEN.

IN 2001 AND 2008, THE LAST

TWO, NOT ONLY DID YOU HAVE

A COLLAPSE, BUT YOU HAD

THE GREATEST STOCK MARKET

DAY CRASH IN HISTORY

HAPPEN ON THE EXACT ALUL

29 DAY THAT GOD APPOINTED

TO WIPE AWAY THE FINANCIAL

REALM.

SEVEN YEARS LATER, THE END

OF THE NEXT SHEMITAH, ALUL

29, COMES THE OTHER

GREATEST COLLAPSE ON THE

EXACT DAY THAT GOD

APPOINTED.

YOU HAVE SEVEN -- BETWEEN

THE TWO GREATEST

COLLAPSES, YOU HAVE A

SEVEN-YEAR HEBREW PERIOD,

DOWN TO THE DAY, THE HOUR,

THE MINUTE OF THE CLOSING

BELL.

IT IS MIND-BOGGLING.

YOU CAN'T PUT GOD IN A

BOX -- HE'LL GET OUT.

YOU CAN'T GET DOGMATIC

ABOUT IT.

IT IS QUITE AMAZING.

NOT ONLY THE ECONOMIC

REALM, BUT IT LINKS TO THE

RISE AND FALL OF NATIONS.

ISRAEL FELL DURING THE

SHEMITAH, AND BABYLON

ROSE.

AND IT MARKS THE GREATEST

CATACLYSMS IN MODERN

HISTORY.

IT MARKS WORLD WARS, 9/11

HAPPENED ACCORDING TO IT.

NATIONS RISE AND FALL.

IN FACT, AMERICA'S RISE IS

TIED TO A SHEMITAH THAT

COMES.

ACTUALLY MORE THAN ONE.

SO THE QUESTION IS, COULD

IT BE LINKED ALSO TO THE

FALL?

AND COULD THERE BE A

CHANGE?

THIS PRESENT SHEMITAH --

AMERICA HAS BEEN THE

STRONGEST ECONOMIC POWER

ON EARTH SINCE 1871, THE

AMERICAN AGE.

WELL, THAT ENDED WHEN THE

SHEMITAH BEGAN.

AND AMERICA HAS BEEN

DETHRONED BY CHINA.

SO IT HAS HAPPENED REALLY

PRECISELY, AND I'M NOT

SAYING IT ALWAYS HAD TO

BE, BUT AMERICA, I

BELIEVE, IS RACING TOWARDS

JUDGMENT.

THESE ARE DANGER PERIODS

THERE.

AND THEN WE HAVE THIS

PRESENT ONE AS WELL.

Gordon: WHAT'S THE --

FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW

THE DAY, WHAT'S THE DATE

THIS YEAR?

THE DATE -- RIGHT NOW

WE'RE IN THE WAKE PERIOD.

IN OTHER WORDS, ALUL 29

COMES WITH A FEAST OF

TRUMPETS.

WE'RE RIGHT NOW IN THE

DAYS OF AWE.

AND THE INTERESTING THING

ABOUT THIS ONE IS THAT --

TWO OF THE SMEET TAS YOU SHEMITAHS YOU

HAVE THE COLLAPSE ON THE

EXACT DAY.

BUT THE STOCK MARKET

REACHES ITS PEAK AND THEN

IT BEGINS A LONG-TERM

COLLAPSE OR A LONG-TERM

PLUNGE.

THAT HAPPENED THIS TIME AS

WELL.

THE STOCK MARKET HAS BEEN

GOING UP, UP, UP, UNTIL

THE SUMMER.

AND IT'S BEEN GOING DOWN.

IN THE BOOK, THERE ARE

SEVERAL PATTERNS.

ONE WAS IN 1987, WHERE IN

THE SUMMER IT STARTS

TANKING.

THAT'S WHAT IS HAPPENING

WITH THIS ONE, FOLLOWING A

PATTERN.

THE SHEMITAH HAS ALREADY

WIPED AWAY $2 TRILLION

FROM WALL STREET ALREADY.

Gordon: IT LOPPED OFF

40% OFF THE CHINESE

MARKET.

AMAZING.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Gordon: PEOPLE HAVE

FLED IT.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Gordon: AND IT'S

CERTAINLY IN A PANIC.

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

THEY TOLD ME IT HAS BEEN

$5 TRILLION FROM THE

WORLD.

SO IT ALREADY HAS FOLLOWED

THE PATTERN.

BUT ONE OF THE THINGS

ABOUT IT IS THAT THE

PATTERN HAS BEEN ALSO --

WE CAN'T BE DOGMATIC, BUT

THEN YOU HAVE THE AUTUMN

WAKE PERIOD, WHICH IS

WHERE WE ARE NOW.

THAT'S USUALLY THE TIME

THAT WITNESSES THE

GREATEST COLLAPSES BECAUSE

IN THE BIBLICAL TIME YOU

HAVE THIS WIPEOUT TIME.

AND THEN YOU HAVE IT

MANIFESTED IN THIS TIME.

THE INTERESTING THING,

GORDON -- I'M SURE YOU

KNOW THIS, BUT PEOPLE IN

THE FINANCIAL WORLD HAVE

BEEN MYSTIFIED WHY DO THE

GREATEST CRASHES TEND TO

TAKE PLACE AT ONE TIME OF

THE YEAR.

Gordon: OCTOBER.

THE AUTUMN PERIOD.

AND THEY TRIED TO FIGURE

OUT WHAT IT WAS.

AND NOTHING REALLY

ANSWERED THAT.

BUT THE BIBLE ANSWERS IT

BECAUSE THAT IS THE EXACT

PERIOD, SEPTEMBER,

OCTOBER, IS THE MONTH OF

ALUL TISHERY.

THAT'S THE TIME THAT GOD

APPOINTED IN THE BIBLE FOR

THE WIPEOUT, FOR THE

NULLIFICATION OR WIPING

CLEAN OF THE FINANCIAL

REALM.

THE MAJORITY OF THE

GREATEST PERCENTAGE

CRASHES IN HISTORY HAVE

HAPPENED IN THAT LITTLE

TIME PERIOD.

WITHIN TWO AND A HALF

WEEKS ON THE HEBREW

CALENDAR.

THE MAJORITY OF THEM.

IT IS KIND OF A DANGEROUS

PERIOD IN THAT SENSE.

SO YOU LOOK AT THE -- AND

THE GREATEST POINT CRASHES

ALL CLUSTER AROUND ALUL

29.

THE TOP FIVE ALL HAPPENED

AROUND THE TIME OF ALUL 29

OF THE SHEMITAH.

SO YOU'VE GOT ALL OF THESE

THINGS.

I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO

FEAR, BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO

KNOW GOD IS ON THE THRONE.

GOD IS IN CHARGE OF

EVERYTHING.

EVERYTHING, INCLUDING THE

STOCK MARKET.

NOT THAT WE JUDGE OUR

FINANCES ON IT, BUT HE IS

IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING.

AND THERE IS THE SUPER

SHEMITAH, OR THE SEVENTH

SHEMITAH, WHICH IS THE

JUBILEE.

AND THERE IS A WHOLE

MYSTERY IN THAT THAT EVERY

SEVENTH SHEMITAH, THE

49th YEAR, USHERS IN

WHAT WE CALL THE SUPER

JUBILEE.

EVERYTHING GETS RELEASED,

AND IT SAYS EVERYONE WILL

BE RESTORED TO THE LAND

THEY LOST.

2000 YEARS AGO, ISRAEL

LOST ITS LAND.

IT WAS DRIVEN OUT.

COULD THIS MYSTERY OF THIS

JUBILEE THING, COULD THIS

ACTUALLY GIVE US THE

TIMING OF WHEN ISRAEL IS

RESTORED AND WHEN END-TIME

EVENTS HAPPEN?

AND THE AMAZING ANSWER IS

YES.

IN THE BOOK, IT IS CALLED

THE MYSTERY OF THE SEVENTH

SHEMITAH.

WE DON'T KNOW WHEN THE

JUBILEE IS FROM ANCIENT

RECORDS.

BUT WE DO KNOW WHEN THEY

CELEBRATED THE SHEET TA.

SHEMITAH.

THE JUBILEE HAS TO HAPPEN

AFTER THE SHEMITAH BECAUSE

IT IS THE 49th YEAR.

1917 IS THE YEAR OF THE

SHEMITAH.

THE LAND OF ISRAEL HAS

BEEN UNDER ISLAMIC RULE

FOR CENTURIES.

SO 1917, THE OTTOMAN

EMPIRE BEGINS TO COLLAPSE,

IN THAT SHEMITAH.

THE BRITISH ARMY STARTS

MARCHING INTO THE MIDDLE

EAST, AND JERUSALEM FALLS,

AND ISRAEL GOES INTO THE

HANDS OF THE BRITISH

EMPIRE.

AND THE BRITISH EMPIRE IS

JUST THE BAL

BALFOREDECLARATION.

ANBALFORE

BALFOREDECLARATION.

BALFOREP.IF YOU

FAST FORWARD TO THE NEXT

SEVENTH SHEMITAH, IT TAKES

YOU TO 1960, AND THE

PERIOD ORDAINED BY THE

SHEMITAH IS SEPTEMBER 1966

TO SEPTEMBER 1967, THAT

WOULD BE THE YEAR

FOLLOWING THE SHEMITAH.

ISRAELI SOLDIERS GET TO

THE GATES OF JERUSALEM,

AND JERUSALEM IS RESTORED

AGAIN.

AGAIN, EVERYONE SHALL BE

RESTORED.

THE FIRST THING THAT

HAPPENED DURING THE

JUBILEE IS YOU SOUND THE

SHOFAR.

THE FIRST THING THAT

HAPPENS WHEN THEY GET TO

THE TEMPLE MOUNTAIN IS THE

SHOFAR IS SOUNDED.

HE IS 50 YEARS OLD, AND HE

SOUNDED THE JUBILEE.

THIS ALL HAPPENED

ACCORDINGLY.

Gordon: AND 50 YEARS

LATER, IT IS 2017.

NOT EXACTLY.

THERE ARE TWO THINGS: ONE

IS BECAUSE THE JUBILEE

GOES BY ACTUALLY -- THE

SEVENTH SHEMITAH -- ONE IS

A 50-YEAR PERIOD AND ONE

IS A 49 JEE 49-YEAR PERIOD.

FROM ANCIENT TIMES, WHAT

THEY DID, THE YEAR THE

JUBILEE COMES, IT IS

COUNTED AS THE FIRST YEAR

OF THE NEXT SHEMITAH.

IT IS 50 YEARS, BUT IT IS

ALSO 49 YEARS.

THE NEXT SEVENTH SHEMITAH,

FROM '55 TO '56, AND IT

COMES TO SEPTEMBER -- IT

IS 2015, THE PERIOD

FOLLOWING THE JUBILEE

PERIOD WOULD BE SEPTEMBER

SEPTEMBER 2015 TO

SEPTEMBER 2016.

SO WE'RE COMING TO IT

RIGHT NOW.

I'M NOT SAYING GOD HAS TO

DO WHAT HE DID, BUT IF IT

FOLLOWS THE PATTERN OR

THIS SUPER CYCLE, THERE

WOULD BE WAR, WAR IN THE

MIDDLE EAST -- EVERY TIME

IT HAS BEEN -- AND

RESULTING IN A PROPHETIC

END-TIME RESTORATION.

NOT THAT HE HAS TO, BUT

THOSE ARE THE PARAMETERS.

Gordon: WE'RE GOING

TO TAKE A BREAK, BUT

COMING UP, WE'RE GOING TO

HEAR ABOUT THE PERFECT

STORM COMING ON THE

HORIZON, AND WE'RE GOING

TO FIND OUT WHAT THAT IS

GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

ALL OF THAT WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Gordon: WELCOME BACK,

WE'RE TALKING TO JONATHAN

CAHN, THE BEST-SELLING

AUTHOR OF "THE HARBINGER,"

AND "THE MYSTERY OF THE

SHEMITAH."

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE

PERFECT STORM.

WITH THE CAVEAT GOD

DOESN'T HAVE TO FOLLOW OUR

SCHEDULE.

THERE IS SO MUCH

CONVERGING.

WE HAVE THE SHEMITAH, AND

YOU HAVE A SUPER CYCLE OF

THIS THAT WE JUST SPOKE

ABOUT.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, WE

HAVE THE APOSTASY OF

AMERICA.

AMERICA IS RACING AWAY

FROM GOD.

YOU HAVE, FOR INSTANCE,

JUST RECENTLY YOU HAD THE

SUPREME COURT STRIKE DOWN

MARRIAGE AS WE KNOW IT.

THIS IS MAJOR.

WE CROSSED A MAJOR LINE

HERE.

AT THE SAME TIME, THERE IS

A BIBLICAL PRINCIPLE THAT

BEFORE JUDGMENT COMES AN

ACT OF DISCRATION. DESECRATION.

YOU HAVE IT IN BABYLON.

WELL, MARRIAGE IS A SACRED

VESSEL OF GOD.

IF YOU TURN IT AGAINST ITS

PURPOSES, THIS IS A

DESECRATION.

AND THIS IS CELEBRATED

ACROSS AMERICA WITH THE

SIGN OF THE RAINBOW.

THE RAINBOW IS NOT OF A

MOVEMENT.

IT IS OF GOD.

Gordon: A COVENANT.

IT IS HIS VESSEL.

SO IT IS LIKE A DOUBLE

DESECRATION.

A RAINBOW IS ABOUT

JUDGMENT AND MERCY.

THE PRESIDENT, THAT NIGHT,

HE CAUSES THE WHITE HOUSE

TO BE LIT UP IN THE COLORS

OF THE RAINBOW.

THIS IS THE HIGHEST HOUSE

OF THE LAND.

THIS IS A TRIPLE

DESECRATION GOING ON.

THIS IS A MAJOR, MAJOR

THING THAT WE JUST

CROSSED.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, WE

HAVE -- AT THE SAME TIME,

WE HAVE ISRAEL, AMERICA

AND ISRAEL.

ONE OF THE SAVING GRACES

HAS BEEN THAT AMERICA HAS

BLESSED ISRAEL.

THE COVENANT SAYS IF YOU

BLESS ISRAEL, YOU WILL BE

BLESSED.

THAT IS NOT AN ACCIDENT.

NOW WE'RE WITNESSING AT

THE SAME TIME AMERICA IS

FALLING RAPIDLY AWAY FROM

GOD, IT IS ALSO FALLING

AWAY FROM ISRAEL.

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND

AMERICA, IT IS THE WORST

RELATIONSHIP EVER.

YOU NEVER HAD THEM BOTH AT

THE SAME TIME.

WE'RE WATCHING THAT AT THE

SAME TIME.

WE'RE APPROACHING THE

AUTUMN.

AND THE JUBILEE WE SPOKE

ABOUT BEGINS ON YOM

KIPPUR, SEPTEMBER 23rd,

AND THAT STARTS THE

ONE-YEAR PERIOD.

SO YOU HAVE ALL OF THESE

THINGS HAPPENING AT ONCE.

WE -- ON TOP OF IT ALL,

YOU ALSO HAVE THE

HARBINGERS.

THEY HAVE NOT STOPPED.

I'VE SPOKEN WITH PAT ABOUT

THAT.

SINCE THE BOOK CAME OUT,

THEY HAVE CONTINUED ON.

ONE OF THEM IS THE TOWER

AT GROUND ZERO.

Gordon: WE WILL

REBUILD.

WE WILL REBUILD.

AND IT IS THE EMBODIMENT

OF DEFIANCE.

IT WAS BIRTHED WHEN TOM

DASCHLE ON CAPITOL HILL

PROCLAIMED ISAIAH 9: 10.

SO THIS HAS CONTINUED ON.

IT IS ALMOST AS IT GOES

UP, AMERICA HAS BEEN

FALLING MORE AND MORE

AWAY.

THE THING IS OBAMA --

AFTER I WROTE THE BOOK,

"THE HARBINGER," OBAMA

WROTE WORDS ON THE TOP OF

THE TOWER.

HE CAN WRITE ANYTHING HE

WANTS.

WHAT HE WROTE WAS

BASICALLY IN AMERICAN

PROSE, HE WROTE ISAIAH 9:

10.

HE WROTE THE VOW OF

JUDGMENT AND DEFIANCE ON

TOP OF THAT TOWER OF

DEFIANCE.

IN ISRAEL, IT WAS EIGHT

HEBREW WORDS THAT BROUGHT

JUDGMENT.

HE WRITES EIGHT WORDS ON

THE TOWER THAT MATCH THE

HEBREW.

AND THE TOWER HAS JUST

REACHED ITS COMPLETION

NOW.

JUST RECENTLY THEY OPENED

UP THE TOP OF IT.

TWO DAYS LATER A SUDDEN

STORM CAME OVER NEW YORK

CITY AND STRUCK THE TOWER,

THREE TIMES WITH

LIGHTNING.

AND THEN CAME THE SUPREME

COURT DECISION.

THERE ARE SOME THINGS IN

THE BIBLE THAT GOD CALLS

ABOMINATIONS THAT BRING

JUDGMENT.

AND ONE OF THEM IS WHEN

ISRAEL OFFERED UP ITS

CHILDREN.

HE SAID, I WILL JUDGE THE

LAND FOR THIS.

YOU CAN'T COMPARE AMERICA.

ISRAEL OFFERED UP

THOUSANDS, AND WE OFFERED

UP MILLIONS.

AND NOW IT COMES OUT WE'RE

SELLING --

Gordon: BODY PARTS.

WHICH ISRAEL NEVER DID.

SO YOU HAVE THAT.

AND THEN YOU HAVE SEXUAL

IMMORTALITY.

WE SPOKE ABOUT THAT AND

THE SUPREME COURT.

THAT'S ANOTHER SIN THAT

GOD SPECIFICALLY SAYS IN

THE BIBLE, IT IS AN

ABOMINATION AND HE JUDGES

ON IT.

AND THEN THERE IS A THIRD.

IT SAYS THAT -- GOD SAID,

THE IDOLS.

IN HEBREW, THE WORD FOR

IDOL IS SHACUTZ, AND THAT

MEANS ABOMINATION.

IN THE END TIMES, IT WILL

BE ABOMINATION DESOLATION.

IN HEBREW, IT GOES

TOGETHER.

IT SAYS, IDOLS WILL APPEAR

ON THE LAND.

WHEN A NATION DRIVES OUT

GOD, IDOLS COME IN.

IN AMERICA WE DON'T CALL

THEM IDOLS AND GODS, BUT

THEY ARE, NEVERTHELESS.

Gordon: THERE ARE

LITERAL IDOLS.

DETROIT PUT UP A LITERAL

IDOL.

AND YOU HAVE A SHOW,

"AMERICAN IDOL."

BUT WE TRY TO DOWN PLAY

THAT.

BUT IN THE LAST DAYS OF

ISRAEL, THE IMAGES OF THE

GODS CAME UP.

A FASCINATING THING, THIS

SUMMER IN AUGUST, AN IMAGE

WAS PUT UP ON THE EMPIRE

STATE BUILDING.

THAT IMAGE, GORDON, IS THE

IMAGE OF A FOREIGN GOD ON

THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING.

THAT IMAGE IS THE GOD

CALI.

IT WAS PUT UP THERE.

AND IT IS PROPERLY THE

LARGEST IMAGE OF A FALSE

GOD IN THE HISTORY OF THE

PLANET.

Gordon: WHY DID THEY

DO THAT?

THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT

GLOBAL WARMING AND THEY'RE

GOING TO APPOINT CALI TO

BE THE PROTECTOR.

Gordon: THAT'S THE

GOD IS PANTHEON?

EXACTLY, AND THE GOD OF

DARKNESS.

I THINK OF IT -- THEY HAD

ALL OF THESE PROJECTORS

PROJECTING MASSIVE LIGHT

TO PROJECT THE GOD OF

DARKNESS.

IT IS EXACTLY -- CALI IS

THE GODDESS OF DEATH AND

DESTRUCTION, EXACTLY THAT,

OVER NEW YORK CITY.

SO YOU HAVE -- WE'VE NEVER

HAD THAT BEFORE.

I WAS LOOKING AT A PICTURE

FROM THE 1950s, AND YOU

HAD ACTUALLY COURTHOUSES CROSSS

PROJECTED ON TO THAT.

I BELIEVE WE'RE AT A VERY

DANGEROUS PERIOD.

Gordon: WHAT SHOULD

CHRISTIANS DO?

NUMBER ONE,

CHRISTIANS -- PEOPLE SAY,

WHAT'S THE SAFEST PLACE TO

BE.

Gordon: ISRAEL.

WELL, YEAH.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE READY TO

FIGHT THERE.

AND OUTSIDE OF THAT, THERE

IS A SAFE PLACE CALLED THE

WILL OF GOD.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE

YOU ARE, IF YOU'RE IN THE

WILL OF GOD.

IF THERE IS ANYTHING IN

YOUR LIFE THAT IS NOT

RIGHT, NOW IS THE TIME TO

GET RIGHT.

NOW.

START BECOMING THAT PERSON

OF PRAYER.

DON'T SAY TOMORROW.

IF PEOPLE ARE WATCHING

THIS WHO DON'T KNOW THE

LORD AND THEY SAY HOW DO I

BE SAVED, A HEBREW WORD

THAT YOU ARE WELL AWARE

OF, USHUAIA.

AND USHUAIA IS JESUS.

GET IN JESUS.

THAT'S THE ONLY SAFE

PLACE.

PEOPLE ASK ME IS THERE

GOING TO BE JUDGMENT OR

REVIVAL?

MY ANSWER IS I BELIEVE

THERE IS GOING TO BE BOTH.

I BELIEVE AMERICA HAS

GROWN SO HARDENED TO GOD

IT IS GOING TO TAKE

SHAKING.

MANY OF US CAME TO THE

LORD BY BEING SHAKEN.

I WAS LITERALLY HIT BY A

LOCOMOTIVE TRAIN.

THAT'S HOW I GOT SAVED.

I BELIEVE GOD HAS TO

SHOUT.

AND I BELIEVE THAT THROUGH

SHAKING CAN COME REVIVAL.

GOD'S HEART IS REVIVAL.

GOD'S HEART IS THAT NONE

SHOULD PERISH.

BUT IF THE DARK IS GETTING

DARKER, THE LIGHTS HAVE TO

GET BRIGHTER.

Gordon: LET'S

REMEMBER THE WORDS OF

JESUS, WHEN YOU SEE THESE

SIGNS LOOK TO THE HEAVENS

BECAUSE OUR REDEMPTION

DRAWS NONE.

JONATHAN CAHN, THANK YOU

FOR SHARING.

HIS BOOK IS CALLED "THE

MYSTERY OF THE SHEMITAH,"

AND IT IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

AND I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET

IT.

I ENCOURAGE YOU NOW IS THE

TIME TO WATCH AND PRAY.

WHEN JESUS RETURNS, THERE

IS A TEST: ARE YOU

PRAYING?

ARE YOU WATCHING FOR IT?

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR THE

SIGNS?

AND THE OTHER SIGN, AND

THIS IS THE ONE THAT WE

HAVE UP ON OUR BUILDING

HERE AT CBN, THIS GOSPEL

OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE

PREACHED IN ALL OF THE

WORLD AS A WITNESS, AND

THEN THE END WILL COME.

SO LET US NOT GO INTO OUR

HOMES AND HUN KEKER DOWN.

LET'S GET OUT AND PREACH

THE GOSPEL BECAUSE PEOPLE

ARE GOING TO BE WONDERING

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING

ON?

AND WE HAVE THE ANSWER FOR

THEM.

AND THE ANSWER IS JESUS.

JESSICA, OVER TO YOU.

WELL, GORDON, THE SCOPE

OF THE REFUGEE CRISIS IN

THE MIDDLE EAST IS

STAGGERING WITH NO END IN

SIGHT.

WE'RE GOING TO TACKLE THIS

TOPIC AND PRAY FOR THE

REFUGEES WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Gordon: IRAQI

CHRISTIANS WERE FLEEING

ISLAM.

INSTEAD OF BEING WELCOMED

AS REFUGEES, THEY WERE

ARRESTED AND SENT TO A

PRISON IN SAN DIEGO.

GARY LANE BRINGS US THEIR

STORY.

Reporter: LAST YEAR

300,000 IMMIGRANTS FROM

MUSLIM COUNTRIES WERE

WELCOME INTO THE UNITED

STATES.

MOST CAME SEEKING A BETTER

LIFE.

BUT WHAT ABOUT CHRISTIANS

ESCAPING ISIS?

OUR BORDER IS OPEN TO

EVERYONE SKETCH

CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: THIS MAN

RECENTLY PRAYED WITH

FELLOW IRAQI QUESTIONS

OUTSIDE SAN DIEGO'S OTAY'S

DETENTION FACILITY.

THEY GATHERED IN PROTEST

AND SUPPORT FOR THOSE

DETAINED INSIDE.

FOR NEARLY SIX MONTHS NOW

THE U.S. IMMIGRATION

SERVICE HAS IMPRISONED 20

CALDEAN CATHOLICS, FOR

ATTEMPTING TO ENTER THE

UNITED STATES FROM MEXICO

WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL.

AROBO SAYS THE I.N.S. DID

TELL THE FAMILIES IT

LACKED SUFFICIENT

RESOURCES TO GO THROUGH

INDIVIDUAL CASE FILES, TO

PROVIDE THEM WITH AN

EXPLANATION.

HE SUGGESTS THE FAMILIES

DESERVE BETTER.

SO WE'RE GOING TO

PROTEST.

WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE

OFFICIALS TO OPEN UP THEIR

HEARTS AND MINDS TO

VICTIMS OF GENOCIDE.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO STOP.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HOLD

THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

Reporter: THIS IRAQI

CHRISTIAN SERVED AS AN

TREARPTD FOINTERPRETER DURING THE

ISLAMIC STATE WAR.

HE WORKED FOR THE

AMERICANS, AND NOW HE IS

LIVING IN SAN DIEGO.

HE PRAYS THAT HIS

26-YEAR-OLD COUSIN, ZIAD,

WILL SOON BE ABLE TO JOIN

HIM.

HE WAS TAKEN INTO U.S.

CUSTODY.

HE WONDERS WHY HIS COUSIN

IS STILL DETAINED.

HE IS NOT AN ISLAMIC

TERRORIST, HE EXPLAINED,

BUT A KIND CHRISTIAN WHO

WOULD NOT HURT ANYONE.

ZIAD WOULD NOT BE

HARMFUL TO THIS COUNTRY.

LET HIM GO LIVE WITH HIS

FAMILY.

HE IS YOUNG.

HE CAN WORK.

HE CAN PAY TAXES.

HE CAN BE HAPPY AROUND HIS

FAMILY.

HIS FAMILY COULD SPONSOR

HIM.

Reporter: IN JUST

MOMENTS BEFORE THIS PRAYER

VIGIL, WORD CAME THAT THE

MOTHER OF ONE OF THE

DETAINEES INSIDE HAD DIED

OF CANCER.

THE DETAINEE HAD REQUESTED

A RELEASE FOR A DAY OR TWO

TO GO SEE HER MOTHER FOR A

DAY OR TWO AND THAT

REQUEST WAS DENIED.

THEY SAY THAT IS JUST AN

EXAMPLE OF A BROKEN

SYSTEM.

AND MANY BELIEVE AMERICA'S

EARLY TROOP WITHDRAWAL

FROM IRAN IS THE BLAME FOR

THE RISE OF ISIS.

THEY FORCE CHRISTIANS TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM, LEAVE,

OR DIE.

THEY DID NOT FINISH THE

MISSION.

AND WE CAN'T GET PAPERS TO

STAY IN AMERICA.

WHERE SHOULD WE GO?

WHEN DID THE SYMBOL OF

AMERICA BECOME A GATED

FENCE AS OPPOSED TO THE

STATUE OF LIBERTY.

GIVE ME YOUR POOR, YOUR

HUDDLED MASSES, YEARNING

TO THE FREE.

THESE ARE THOSE

CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS, SAN DIEGO.

Gordon: WE NEED TO

PRAY FOR THE CHRISTIANS OF

IRAQ.

OF ALL OF THE PEOPLE TO

WELCOME WITH OPEN ARMS, IT

WOULD BE THE IRAQI

CHRISTIANS THAT WERE

DRIVEN OUT.

REALIZE THIS IS A

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY THAT

GOES BACK 1900 YEARS.

IT IS ONE OF THE MORE

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITIES IN THE WORLD,

THE BABYLONIANS, THE

CALDEAN CHRISTIANS -- WE

NEED TO SHELTER THEM AND

FIND A WAY TO PROTECT

THEM.

LET'S OPEN OUR ARMS TO

THEM.

> MANY OF YOU ARE

TALKING ABOUT THE REFUGEE

CRISIS ON Facebook.

FOR MORE ON THAT, LET'S GO

OVER TO JESSICA.

GORDON, AARON WRITES,

"I'M ONE OF THE IRAQI

CHRISTIANS WHO WAS

FORCIBLY DISPLACED FROM

OUR TOWN.

WE HAD NO WAY TO FIGHT AN

ARMY WHO HAS THE MOST

POWERFUL AND ADVANCED

WEAPONS.

THEY ARE TAKING WOMEN AS

SEXUAL SLAVES.

IT IS SUICIDE TO STAY.

MY WIFE AND I ARE NOW IN

LEBANON."

GORDON, IT SEEMS NOT

EVERYONE WANTS TO HELP THE

REFUGEES.

PENNY WRITES, "WHEN ISIS

SAYS THEY'RE GOING TO PUT

THEIR FIGHTERS IN WITH THE

REFUGEES, YOU BETTER

BELIEVE WHAT THEY SAY.

THEY'RE LAUGHING AT THE

BLEEDING HEARTS WHO

WELCOME THEM."

OVER 75% OF THESE REFUGEES

ARE HEALTHY YOUNG MEN OF

FIGHTING AGE.

AND HERE IS A QUESTION

FROM TRACY: "OUR CHURCH IN

TEXAS JUST HAD A PRAYER

TIME ABOUT THE CRISIS, AND

OUR PASTOR REMINDED US

JESUS AND HIS PARENTS HAD

TO FLEE AS REFUGEES, TOO.

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THIS

WHOLE SITUATION IN SYRIA

IS GOD'S HAND MOVING AND

BRINGING THESE PEOPLE TO A

PLACE WHERE THEY WILL

ENCOUNTER THE LOVE OF

CHRIST AND COME TO ACCEPT

HIM AS THEIR SAVIOR?"

GORDON?

Gordon: I AGREE THIS

IS THE TIME TO BE

PREACHING THE GOSPEL TO

THE MIDDLE EAST, AND CBN

IS DOING THAT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T

KNOW, WE'RE THE LARGEST

SUPPLIER OF CHRISTIAN

ARABIC LANGUAGE

PROGRAMMING IN THE WORLD.

AND WE'RE DOING IT IN

FARSI AND TURKISH AND

CABILE, BERBER.

SO WHETHER IT IS EGYPTIAN,

SAUDI ARABIAN, WE WANT TO

PREACH IN THEIR HEART

LANGUAGE.

AND WE'RE DOING IT IN YOUR

NAME IF YOU'RE A MEMBER OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

AND WE SEEN HAVE

"SUPERBOOK" NOW, THE

STORIES OF THE BIBLE, IN

ALL OF THESE LANGUAGES.

ALL OF THEM BEING

BROADCAST.

AND MY HEART WAS REALLY

WARMED THE OTHER DAY.

WE GOT A PICTURE FROM A

REFUGEE CAMP ON THE BORDER

OF LEBANON AND SYRIA, AND

THERE WAS "SUPERBOOK"

BEING DRAWN BY A YOUNG

REFUGEE WHO HAD BEEN

WATCHING THE CARTOONS ON

TELEVISION.

WELL, IF YOU'D LIKE TO DO

SOMETHING TANGIBLE TO HELP

THE REFUGEE CRISIS,

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

REACHING SYRIAN REFUGEES

IN PLACES LIKE HUNGARY, AS

WELL AS JORDAN, AS WELL AS

THE BORDER OF SYRIA AND

JORDAN.

TOUCHED BY THIS STORY AND

YOU WANT TO SEE GOD MOVE

IN THESE REFUGEE CAMPS,

JOIN WITH US.

WE'RE GOING TO BELIEVE IN

THE POWER OF PRAYER.

HEAVENLY FATHER, WE JUST

COME TO YOU RIGHT NOW WITH

THIS SITUATION.

FATHER, OUR HEARTS ARE

BURDENED FOR THE REFUGEES.

LORD, WE WORSHIP YOU AND

PRAISE YOU FOR THE

REFUGEES WHO ARE COMING TO

KNOW YOU.

WE'VE HEARD IT THROUGH

"SUPERBOOK" AND "OPERATION

BLESSING."

FATHER, WE ASK FOR MORE OF

THAT.

FATHER, WE PRAY THAT YOUR

CHURCH, YOUR HANDS, YOUR

FEET WILL GO OUT AND BE

THE HANDS OF CHRIST TO

THESE PEOPLE.

THAT THEY THERE ENCOUNTER

YOU WITH DREAMS AND

VISIONS, LORD.

FATHER, WE PRAY THAT IN

THE MIDST OF THIS TRAGEDY,

THAT IT WOULD BRING GLORY

TO YOUR NAME, THAT THEY

WILL NOT JUST GET THE

PHYSICAL AND MATERIAL

RELIEF THAT THEY NEED, BUT

THEY WILL COME TO KNOW YOU

AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR.

IN JESUS' NAME WE PRAY.

AMEN.

GORDON?

Gordon: THAT'S ALL OF

THE TIME WE HAVE.

BE SURE TO PRAY FOR THE

PERSECUTED CHURCH.

BE SURE TO PRAY FOR PEOPLE

IN NEED.

HERE IT IS FROM PSALM 9:

"THE LORD IS A SHELTER FOR

THE OPPRESSED, A REFUGE IN

TIMES OF TROUBLE."

FOR ALL OF US HERE, GOD

BLESS YOU, AND WE'LL SEE

YOU AGAIN TOMORROW.
