How many times does someone have to make false prophecies before you can call them a false prophet? According to the Bible, the answer is “only once” (Deuteronomy 18:22). How many time does someone have to make false prophecies before Michael Brown calls them a false prophet? There doesn’t seem to be a limit.
Twenty-five months ago today, Jonathan Cahn’s The Mystery of the Shemitah prophecy failed to come to fruition. His New York Times best-selling book (it made it to #2 in prophecy, #3 in religion and #129 in books overall) claimed that America was on a seven-year cycle and that upon the Jewish “Shemitah” there would be an imminent national collapse, signaling God’s final judgment of the nation. The charismatic prophets – including Dr. Michael Brown – all nodded their heads in approval of Cahn’s thesis, with Charisma Mag writing, 10 Things that are Going to Happen Within 15 Days of the End of Shemitah. When asked on September 23, 2015 where he stood on the Shemitah (two days before it was to end), Dr. Brown said, “the jury is still out, and we will watch and see what is going to happen in the coming weeks.”
Okay, well, more than a few weeks have gone by. Two years have gone by. Cahn’s prophecies were garbage. Michael Brown is an embarrassing fool to think that the charismatic black magic of omen interpretation and astrology could predict the future. So guess what Michael Brown did yesterday…he interviewed Jonathan Cahn on Line of Fire to help him sell yet another book attempting to portend future events. Keep in mind, Cahn’s failed Shemitah prophecies followed on the heels of The Harbinger, which also contained failed prophecies.
Make no mistake about it, there are few modern day prophets with a track record more abysmal than Jonathan Cahn. But Michael Brown – who apparently does not have the Holy Spirit as evidenced by his complete and total lack of spiritual discernment – continues to provide a platform for who is a demonstrably, provably false prophet.
Cahn was wrong on The Harbinger. Cahn was wrong on The Shemitah. Cahn was wrong in his follow-up book, The Book of Mysteries. And now his new book, The Paradigm, draws absurd and logic-stretching parallels between ancient and modern events.
Shame on Michael Brown. Shame on him, and may his charismatic snake-oil selling be damned to the deepest recesses of hell where it belongs.
