The Harbinger – an Ancient Mystery Holding Secrets of America’s Future?
New York Times best seller, The Harbinger is solidly based on Biblical fact and recent U.S. History. It is told as a story rather than just piecing together random historical data by the author, Jonathan Cahn. He has done a masterful job of tying together current events with a significant prophecy from Isaiah.
Webster’s Dictionary defines “harbinger” as “something that presages or foreshadows what is to come.” The word “presage” means omen, foreboding and/or warning. The Harbinger provides a series of warnings or omens, God provided His chosen nation, Israel. These came just 10-20 years before its complete destruction. This work correlates Israel’s sins with the similar now being committed by the U.S.A. (2011-2021 A.D.)
Mr. Cahn’s thesis shows God warned Israel with harbingers to turn from their sin or they would be destroyed. These were given in Isaiah, chapter 9, starting with verse 8. He says the USA was given nine identical harbingers beginning with the 9-11 attacks on New York City’s Twin Towers. God is telling the U.S.A. (once a Christian Nation) to turn from their national sins or face destruction!
The Bible Harbinger
In particular Mr. Cahn refers to Isaiah 9:10-11 which states: The bricks have fallen down, But we will rebuild with hewn stones; The sycamores are cut down, But we will replace them with cedars.” In an effort to encourage the nation, these words were repeated in Washington D.C. speeches by VP Candidate, John Edwards and Tom Daschle, then Senate Majority Leader.
What none recognized was – Israel didn’t beg for God’s forgiveness nor promise to change their ways, they defiantly stated “we will.” In effect this scripture defied God saying, they didn’t need God. Now, the U.S. is being defiant by saying the exact same thing! Our leaders all 7 years after 9-11 came another collapse – this time financial. Trillions of dollars were lost during the collapse of Fannie Mae, Freddy Mac and Lehman Brothers. Banks and businesses across the nation went bankrupt. What was the answer from President Obama to the nation in his historic inauguration address? “We will rebuild!” (Those defiant words again.) However, 4 years later we’re still stuck in a recession!
At one time the U.S. trusted in the 2 great oceans for protection. Now, our “hedge of protection” is gone; invaders easily cross our borders to create havoc and our economic system is a mess!
God’s Harbingers revealed to Rabbi Cahn
a) The bricks are compared to the 9-11-01 Twin Towers disaster
b) Hewn stones – a 20-ton granite stone cut from the Adirondack’s is at Ground Zero
c) Sycamores – a sycamore was killed on Ground Zero
d) Cedars – A conifer was relocated to Ground Zero
e) The spoken words by our elected leaders (We The People): “We will Rebuild” – stated by NYC mayor; NY Governor; U.S. VP Candidate; Senate Majority Leader and President Barak Obama
What should our nation do? Mr. Cahn points to God’s words in 2 Chronicles 7:14: IF My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND HEAL THEIR LAND.
So, who are MY people? It’s us, We the People – both Christian and Jew! Denominations must stop arguing about who’s right, but turn from our wicked paths – begin praying and seeking God’s face. We need to follow God’s commandments, for they are not suggestions. Mark says go into all the world and preach the gospel. Where’s “all the world?” Start with your neighborhood, then city, then – – – . God loves you, but is not obligated to help those who reject his rules with immorality, thievery, abortion, etc., etc., etc.
I heartily recommend The Harbinger published by Front Line. It will leave you riveted as you anticipate each turn of the page while leaving you with greater knowledge of the U.S.A.’s future.
