Jonathan Cahn Uncovers New Biblical Mysteries

Author Jonathan Cahn discusses his new book that takes readers on an adventure through Scripture to reveal spiritual truths, end time prophecies, and the secrets of life. Read Transcript

Well, our next guest is a biblical scholar

and a real prophet.

I was fascinated some several years ago

when he began to unfold what is called "The Harbinger."

And he talked about the fulfillment of prophecy

and how it had been brought forth in exquisite detail.

That book sold over a million copies.

It was very popular, and then he came up

with another one, called "The Mystery of the Shemitah."

And people have looked, and they've

seen the flux of economic events taking place in our world that

tracks the Jewish calendar.

And now in 2015, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

gave a prophetic warning to America regarding Bael or Baal.

A year later, that word has become a reality.

Take a look at this.

NARRATOR: Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

is known for his bestselling novel, "The Harbinger."

He compared the United States to the destruction

of ancient Israel.

His teachings, which are known for revealing

the deep mysteries of God's word,

are broadcast around the world.

In his devotional, "The Book of Mysteries,"

Jonathan takes you on a one-year journey to mountaintops,

caverns, and the oil-lit chambers of scrolls

to uncover secrets that he says will change your life.

Well, it's a pleasure to welcome back

a dear friend of "The 700 Club," Jonathan Cahn.

Jonathan, God bless you.

God bless you, Pat.

It's so good to see you.

A blessing to be here.

Thank you.

Thank you.

What is this Bael thing?

Or is it Baal, Bael?

Yeah, well, the template of "The Harbinger"

is that Israel is warned and gets the signs,

but they get worse.

And they progress.

We're watching, and I shared about how these things have

manifested in America.

Well, we're also going on this path as a culture.

We're defying God.

Well, in the last days of ancient Israel,

when the harbingers were happening,

they were worshipping the god, Baal, or Bael.

And then somehow they lifted up their children in sacrifices.

They called evil good.

They hunted down the righteous, Elijah.

And so could the sign of Bael also manifest in America

since the harbingers are a sign of a nation that has once

known God but has fallen away?

Well, in the last month, what's happened, Pat?

It did.

It has manifested in New York City.



They erected the Arch of Bael.

The arch that the worshippers of Bael

went through to worship Bael in Palmyra, Syria,

they put it up on American soil.

I was there.

The woman who spoke said, we're doing

this is an act of defiance.

This is a sign of a nation that has turned from God,

once knew God.

Is that it I'm looking at?

That's it.

And she said, it's an act of defiance?

We are doing this as an act of defiance.

This is Bael, I mean, of all things,

identifying the nation that that is an apostasy from God.

And it actually says, the arch of the Temple of Bael,

right there.

And we watch this.

And the weird thing was that about a year and a half

ago, I was on Capitol Hill.

And it was the day after the Supreme Court was

hearing the case on marriage.

And I was led to give a warning.

And I'm saying, and the lord said, Elijah.

So that we're standing between Bael and God.

Choose you this day.

And it looks like it's Bael.

That's the scary thing.

Well, Elijah killed about 500 of them as I recall.

We're not gonna do that.

Well, maybe, he said.

But if the Lord be God, let him be God.

And God answered these prayers.

He said, oh, God, show these people that I've

done this at your word.

And suddenly the fire from heaven fell.

Do you think we're going to see something like that?

I hope for it because that's the only hope I see.

I mean, the only way I see is revival.

That's it.

I mean, no matter what happens in the political realm,

we've got to pray for revival.

That's it.

Well, talking about that, you know,

I have studied this name that the Muslims use,

you know, of their God.

They call him Allah.

I thought it was Hubal, the moon god of Mecca.

But you look up the books, and they

say, well, it's a derivation of Bael,

that they take it from the Phoenician god,

that that's where they get this God they serve.

Yeah, well, one of the things is

that this arch is a reproduction of what was in Syria actually.

And the thing is, in "The Harbinger," you remember,

Pat, when ancient Israel is rebuilding,

they're rebuilding what the Assyrians destroyed.

Well, it was ISIS, who are the modern-day descendants

of Assyria, who destroyed the Arch of Bael.

So now we're actually rebuilding exactly what happened,

what the Assyrians destroyed.

I mean, it's eerie, and it's actually happening, yeah.

Where is it placed in New York?

It was placed in city hall, and actually I

was going to share this.

But we said, OK, if the arch is here,

where is the Temple of Bael?

So we charted it out, where it would

have been in New York City.

It led us exactly to ground zero.

Come on.


Yes, I have that.

I have the map, and it led us exactly to ground zero, yeah.

Unbelievable, all right, well, let's

talk about this "Book of Mysteries."

Tell us about it.

This is kind of a day-to-day devotional

about this fictional character who leads us through this.

Tell us what it's about.

If "The Harbinger" is the opening up of a mystery,

"The Book of Mysteries" is the opening up

of hundreds of mysteries, from mysteries of heaven,

mysteries of the end times, mysteries of the rabbis.

And it is revealed in a way as in "The Harbinger."

A man goes into the desert.

A man called the teacher takes him on this one-year journey.

And every day on the mountaintops and caves,

he opens up a mystery of God.

So the reader is taken into that journey.

And so every day, you are seeing another mystery.

So you could you read it right through,

but it also could be done as a devotional.

But every day, there's a mystery, and not just that,

not just to be blown away, but to take it and apply it

to your life.

Let's take a few of the mysteries.

You've got one, the mystery of God's name.

Yes, yes.

Well, in this, the teacher says to the disciple,

do you know the name of God?

And the disciple says, I don't know.

He says, you say it all the time.

Every time-- if I say, I'm Jonathan, you say, I'm Pat.

Before you say it, you must say the name of God, I am.

I am Jonathan.

I am Pat.

Before you can speak about ourselves,

we have to put God's name when we

talk about ourselves because our existence comes

from his existence.

Even if I say, I'm sad, well, it's I am is with me.

If I say, I am alone, well, I am is with me when I say that.

Even if I say, I'm in sin, I am-- you know,

this is Jesus-- I am becomes one with our sin.

So there's so much here, but just that.

And the thing is that one of the secrets

is, you know, we live for God.

We're to live to God.

But one of the mysteries is to live from God,

that every moment, because our existence,

every moment is from God.

And so to take it, to live in his living,

to love from his loving, and to live from I am,

we are all saying it.

Well, now, the next one is "The Shemitah."

You wrote a book about that mystery.

About the Shemitah, but this is the mystery of the Smicha,

a little different.

Oh, I'm sorry, Smicha.

All right, I'm sorry.

It's a little different.

There's so much that people don't know yet.

Here's the thing.

In order for the sacrifice to be lifted up,

they had to perform something called the Smicha.

The sacrifice had to be taken to the priest.

The priest would have to lay their palms

on the head of the sacrifice, called the Smicha, become one

with it, confess their sins on top of the sacrifice,

then it could be offered up.

If Messiah Jesus is the sin offering, which he is,

could this have happened?

Well, yes, he was taken to the priests.

The Sanhedrin were the priests, and what did they do?

The Bible says that the palms have to touch.

Well, it says that they buffeted him.

They touched his head.

They touched his face.

The Greek says it was the palms of their hands

when they beat him.

That's the Smicha, and they had to confess the sin over him.

Well, the high priest said, he is guilty of blasphemy.

That wasn't his sin.

They said, that's their sin.

They're confessing it over, blasphemy,

which is the sin of all of us, blasphemy.

And so, Pat, [INAUDIBLE] even if you people never

heard of it, when you get saved, you're performing the Smicha.

You're saying, Jesus, you died for my sins.

So most people thought they just

slapped him, like in the flap, but it wasn't that flap.

Well, they did.

But it was a palm.

It literally says they buffeted him

with the palms of their hands in the Greek.

Literally, that's the Smicha.

The Smicha, it's amazing, and we're actually performing it.

And it's to take your life and touch him with it,

and that's when you get changed.

Another mystery, ladies and gentlemen, this

is a fabulous thing you can go through here.

But the next one is the bride and groom.

Oh, I love this.

This is the Hebrew wedding.

And this takes place where the teacher shows them--

they're tent, desert dwellers, and they're

living like the Bible times.

So throughout the book, you have a stream of mystery

where they're actually seeing a wedding take place

that concludes at the end.

Here's the thing.

In the time of the Bible, the wedding went like this.

For there to be a marriage, the bridegroom

had to make a journey from the house of the bridegroom

to the house of the bride.

He had to do it.

And there he would pledge himself, consecrate his life,

offer a gift called the mohar to set her free.

If she said yes, they were considered married.

But then he had to leave her.

They were separated for over a year.

She'd prepare for the wedding.

She'd prepare to leave her house.

He'd prepare a home for her, and then comes the big wedding day.

He's dressed as a king with a crown.

He comes with torches and men and a great procession.

Second journey, this time comes to take her home.

So this time, they are lifted up.

They see each other face to face.

They're lifted up on a sedan chair,

carried in a great procession, where finally she

sees the house of the bridegroom that has been prepared for her.

They enter in.

They become one.

Well, the mystery is this.

God is the bridegroom.

We are the bride.

According to the mystery, he has to make a journey.

2,000 years ago the bridegroom God

makes the journey from the house of the bridegroom to the house

of the bride, to Earth.

He comes to our life.

He offers the gift, which is his life.

He has to leave.

He says, I have to go back.

They have to go back.

Then he says, I'm preparing a place for you.

So he's preparing a place now.

We're supposed to be preparing ourselves to get ready.

And whether we live to that day when he comes

or when we leave this life, he's going to take us home.

They were already married, though,

when they confess to each other.

That's right.

Well, in the moment, they are considered husband and wife.

That's right, even though they don't

see each other until that.

And then finally it's consummated when he

comes again, dressed as a king.

He comes in glory, and we're going to see that.

And finally, we will see the house that's prepared for us,

and finally we'll be home.

It's so awesome.

And that's the mystery of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Yeah, the whole Bible is that mystery.

All right, let's try another one.

This is fantastic.

How long did it take you to come up with these things?

This is fantastic.

Well, I think it's been, like, 30 years of coming up with it.

But I wrote it at night.

Like, from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock

in the morning this year, I just said,

I just want to strengthen God's people because I

believe we have to be strong.

All right, eight day.

Eight day, one of the most mysterious days in the Bible.

And that is God says at the very end of this sacred year,

it's called the eighth day.

What's the eighth day?

Even the rabbis don't know what this is.

Well, if the seventh day is the day of the end,

the eighth day is what happens beyond the end.

So when you look at the end of the Bible, Revelation,

you see seven, seven, seven trumpets.

Everything is ending.

Then the last two chapters are the eighth day.

It's the day of eternity and the day that breaks the bounds.

Jesus, he rose not just on Sunday,

the first day of the week.

He rose on the eighth day of the week.

It's the day that breaks the barriers.

You know, and we worship on Sunday, many believers.

And so we are children of the eighth day.

There's a way to actually enter the day of eternity

even now, heaven now.

Jonathan, is fantastic.

Ladies and gentlemen, this book-- where can they get it?

It's everywhere. "The Book of Mysteries"

is everywhere from online, Amazon,

to Walmart, everywhere, everywhere.

It looks like one of the books that the teacher shows,

these ancient books that he shows.

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen,

"The Book of Mysteries."

Isn't this fascinating?

Every day, there's another unfolding

of the mysteries of God.

It will enrich your spiritual life.

I just love your writing, brother.

God bless you.

Thank you.

Thank you so much.

Thank you so much.

You are such a blessing.

And I'm reminding you, I came to the Lord

when I was watching "The 700 Club."


Thank you.

You're a trophy that I am proud to claim.

God bless you, Rabbi Cahn.

Ladies and gentlemen, "The Book of Mysteries."
