Rabbi Jonathan Cahn: Make Sure You're Right With God and You Be the Light

The 2016 presidential race seems to have brought out the worst in America, but it's more a symptom of a larger problem. Up is down, left is right and nothing appears to make sense or follow the laws of nature.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of The Harbinger and President of Hope of the World ministries and Senior Pastor of the Beth Israel Jerusalem Center joined The Glenn Beck TV Program on Wednesday to share a message of hope.

"I think a lot of people are feeling like 'I don't see a happy way out here. I don't know if we deserve a miracle here anymore.' Because we've been passing up exits He's been providing for us. Can you leave us with any kind of happy -- should we just put up a cartoon?" Glenn asked.

Forget a happy thought, Cahn had the happy thought.

"A few things, what I would say is where there is God, there is hope because God is hope... America's hope is God," Cahn said.

These truly are the times that try men's souls, but according to Cahn -- that's what breeds greatness.

"These are biblical times. These are the times that Isaiah lived in, that Paul lived in, that Jeremiah lived in," Cahn said. "Where a whole nation was coming against God yet it didn't stop them from being a light, it didn't stop them, but it was their choice. It's a time that really tests, these can be the greatest of times, you can become great. When you look at testimonies of great people, it's when there's opposition, it's when this is happening."

You won't be popular, but Cahn says what's more important is God's approval.

"You're not going to get the applause of the society but you'll get the applause of God -- and that's what it's about. There's always hope, so people always ask 'is it going to be judgement or revival?' Sometimes I answer 'it can be both,'" Cahn said.

In what world does a former atheist who is now a rabbi accept Jesus Christ as his savior? It turns out, finding our way isn't always pleasant. Long ago, Cahn made a deal with the Lord that if he enjoyed a long life, he would accept Jesus on his death bed. God had other plans. When Cahn was hit by a train in his Ford Pinto, the car was obliterated but Cahn emerged without a scratch. Cahn realized his time to accept Jesus was at hand --- not on his terms, but on God's.

"Even revival can come through judgment. Most of us came to the Lord because he shook us in some way. Me, it was a train -- but everybody has their shaking. So we can't fear that -- we're not supposed to fear that. Make sure you're right with God and don't fear --- but be a light, be a light."

Cahn's book The Harbinger told the story of the same signs of judgement in the Old Testament appearing in America. It was written as a novel but according to Cahn, all the signs have actually appeared in our day. But the signs of judgement should not cause anyone to fear.

"I don't believe the point of a harbinger is to scare, I believe because there is hope," Cahn said. "And if America won't turn, we turn. The more we will live like the Book of Acts the more God will do it. The eyes of God search the entire earth looking for the one who's heart is completely his and He's going to show himself powerful."

Cahn not only left a message of hope, he empowered people to stand in the face of evil and stand for righteousness.

"You be that one, you be the one. Let your audience be the one. If we'll be the one, God will prove true, He never lies, He keeps His promise. We do win. The believer in God wins in the end. We have to be strong," Cahn said.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
