Jonathan Cahn, a “messianic rabbi” (read: Christian), has a long track record of being wrong about biblical “prophecies,” but that doesn’t stop him from claiming that Donald Trump’s rise to the presidency was foretold in the Bible, along with the Clintons and Obama too.
During a recent appearance on “It’s Supernatural with Sid Roth,” Cahn told guest host Michael Brown that the elections of Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Donald Trump had all been foretold in the Bible, specifically, in a handful of chapters out of 1 & 2 Kings.
As Cahn explained, Bill and Hillary Clinton are the modern day versions of the ancient king and queen of Israel, Ahab and Jezebel.
“We are replaying an ancient mystery, where we are right now, and it is amazing and it’s true and it’s real,” Cahn said. “In the Bible, there is a king who rises up and he is the first one who pioneers, who is pushing, Baal worship. And the name is Ahab … He is the first one to actually champion from the throne Baal worship, which is the offering up of children. Now, could there be parallel? Well, there is. There is a man who rises as president, he is Bill Clinton, he is going to follow the template of Ahab.”Cahn said that just as Ahab’s wife, Jezebel, was “a champion of Baal worship,” so too was Hillary Clinton “an advocate of female power and advocate of abortion.”
Of course, this is the same charlatan who wrote a book declaring that 2015 was a “shemitah” year and that America would be hit by a massive calamity on September 13th of that year. Nothing happened. But on Planet Wingnuttia, being wrong never results in being taken less seriously. They just move on to the next ridiculous conspiracy theory or false prediction. That’s why people like Alex Jones and Jim Bakker continue to have audiences.
In a rational world, people would have noticed that nothing they ever predict actually happens and they would stop listening to them and recognize them as the con artists they are. But rationality is in very short supply in that particular group, to say the very least.
