Rabbi Jonathan Cahn shared his salvation story when he addressed the Charisma Conference over the weekend.
Cahn, the author of best-selling books such as The Harbinger, The Mystery of the Shemitah, The Book of Mysteries and The Paradigm, said it took a train hitting him to wake up spiritually.
“I would not be saved if I was not hit literally by a literal locomotive train,” Cahn said. He knew then he better get saved.
Going off his Hebrew background, Cahn knew Moses met God on a mountaintop, so the rabbi decided to do the same.
“So I found a mountain. I didn’t know where it was, I just found a mountain in the dark and went up to the top of the mountain,” Cahn says. “I found a rock, I kneeled down and I gave my life to the Lord.”
Years later, the Lord led Cahn back to the mountain, and he brought his Bible, a prayer shawl, a flash light and a shofar. He found the same rock and “I had a great time with God.”
The next day, Cahn was preaching at a conference when he met a woman who knew all about the mountain. She gave him a picture of a man standing on a mountain with a prayer shawl and a Bible.
“I said, ‘That’s strange, because that was me last night,'” Cahn says.
Cahn told the woman all about the mountain when she said, “I know the mountain. … That mountain is dedicated to Satan.”
Cahn was shocked, but told her his salvation story.
“On top of it? That’s where they gather together,” Cahn says the woman said.
“Well, I got saved. There’s this rock I kneeled down on,” Cahn told the woman.
“That’s the altar!” She said.
“And that kind of explains my walk,” Cahn says. “It has not been normal from the very beginning.”
