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.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
