I feel very strongly that we are so vulnerable to being deceived these days, and The Harbinger, is one book that many Christians are buying into today and getting really excited about these so-called mystery revelations that the author Jonathan Cahn has been given from God. Below is a quote from The Berean Call’s website.
“In The Harbinger: Fact or Fiction? author David James exhaustively documents and responds to the serious flaws found throughout the New York Times best-seller from Charisma Media, The Harbinger . Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn believes he has discovered an “ancient mystery” in Isaiah:9:10. (the bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.) that “explains everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy.” As Cahn states at the beginning of his book “What you are about to read is presented in the form of a story, but what is contained within the story is real.” Many have accepted Cahn’s message as being genuinely from God. However, David James has clearly demonstrated that The Harbinger falls far short of meeting the biblical requirements for such a message from God, being based on the mishandling of Scripture, faulty theology, misleading statements, the selective use of historical facts, and unsupported speculation.”

It has come to my attention that the book, “The Harbinger,” by Jonathan Cahn has a lot of false teaching in it. Today we have access to so much information in the form of books, television, news, internet, and many other sources. We need to be careful what we read and listen too. We need discernment to know if the message is Biblical, or if it goes against the Bible. These are the only two possibilities, and we have to be extra careful today. If you will click on the link below, it will take you to an article by Christine Pack called, “A Commentary on the Harbinger: A Warning About the Harbinger — Worldview Weekend. This article explains what is wrong with this teaching.
Perhaps you have read this book and got all excited thinking the author is really on to something. What we find is that he has added extra-Biblical teaching to it.

Another good review is by Tim Challies. He is a wonderful Christian and reviews many books to help us with our discernment.

Would you be comfortable signing up for a program with Rick Warren that was influenced by New Age teachings? That is exactly what he has asked thousands of Christians around the country to do. That is more than a little scary to me.
Our churches are very weak in general and every kind of false teaching can enter because the people lack discernment. Real Bible Study has gone out the window over the years and people just don’t know how to discern between true and false teaching. It is a shame and makes me want to cry like Jeremiah the prophet.
Rick Warren asked three well-known doctors to put together a health and wellness plan for 52 weeks for his followers.
The three doctors are: Dr. Amen, who says he is a Christian, (but I’m wondering about that.) He practices and teaches meditation called Kirtan Knya. This is not Biblical meditation where you ponder scripture, but is an Eastern practice which alters one’s state of consciousness. This is totally against Bible teaching.
Now I’m sure most of you have heard of Dr. Oz. He was promoted by Oprah Winfrey on her shows a few years ago and ended up with a show of his own. Perhaps you watch his daily show. He promotes meditation and hypnosis on his show along with other New Age practices. His faith is Muslim. He promotes something called Swedenborgism, and Reiki. Reiki is a meditative state where one channels evil spirits. This is not good!
Dr. Hyman is a Jew. He promotes yoga. Another New Ager.
I don’t know what Rick Warren is thinking! People need to be aware of this false teaching and flee from it.
Below is a wonderful article by Marsha West who explains much more about these doctors and how the New Age influence is contained in Rick Warren’s Daniel Plan.

Pastor Rick Warren continues to work at “fulfilling people’s needs.” His latest endeavor is “The Daniel Plan,” a 52-week health and fitness program. Pastor Rick has decided it’s high time to lose 90 pounds. But there’s more to his health plan than meets the eye. click here to read more.
