Pride is not a great attribute.
The Bible tells us that “pride goeth before destruction.” (Proverbs 16:18) But it’s clear that the Bible is talking about pride, in this context, as a “haughty spirit.”
There’s another kind of “pride” that is perfectly healthy. It’s the feeling you get when, with God’s help, you accomplish something that brings people closer to Him and perhaps more in line with His will for their lives.
As a writer, publisher, editor and journalist, I’ve had a few moments in my life in which I got the feeling of satisfaction that I had done something to further God’s kingdom.
I have that feeling today about a new video documentary I produced called “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
Here’s the story behind it.
Last fall, I received an email from a reader telling me about a teaching by a messianic rabbi named Jonathan Cahn. I had never heard of him before. But I was directed to a hotlink that introduced me to what he had to say about a book he had completed called “The Harbinger,” which was set for release the first week of the new year. (Since its release, it has been in the top 10 of New York Times best-sellers every week.)
It’s the story of how what happened to the U.S. Sept. 11, 2001, was a warning – from God. And it provides what I believe to be overwhelming evidence to support that conclusion.
After hearing what Cahn had to say, I immediately got in touch with him and asked if he would be willing to make a video documentary on the subject.
He graciously agreed. Now normally, a video project like this would take a year, including planning, writing, shooting and editing. But I wanted to get this documentary out in a hurry, because I knew “The Harbinger” was going to be very popular – even months before it was released. So we all got right to work and completed it – including replication and shipping by last week.
The fruit of that original conversation is now available – and I’m very pleased with the way it came out, thanks in large part to the work of Cahn and award-winning director George Escobar.
There’s a reason “The Harbinger” has been so phenomenally successful – the most popular Christian book release of 2012. It resonates as truth in the souls of Americans.
I believe the “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” is, in some ways, even more powerful because of the way the material is presented. Seeing, after all, is believing. And in “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” you get to see the evidence for yourself.
If you believe in the Bible as the word of God, there’s no question in my mind you will be touched and moved by this presentation. This teaching has literally changed my life – given me new purpose and commitment and passion. And I have done my best to faithfully communicate it to you in this video documentary – the very best documentary I have ever been involved with.
I hope you agree.
In fact, my hope is that you agree so strongly that you will want to share this video with everyone you know, your friends, your Bible study partners, your church.
America is desperately in need of spiritual revival – and I believe this message could trigger it.
But it must be seen to have that effect.
If anything I have said or written over the last 15 years has been meaningful to you, I hope you will accept my invitation to get this video today and watch it with your family. Put aside two hours of uninterrupted time. Read Isaiah 9:10 before you do – and perhaps the major commentaries on the verse.
I think you will be amazed. I think you will be inspired. I think you will be grateful for listening to my advice.
