From Barack Obama’s statement “We are no longer a Christian nation” to the new mandatory payments by citizens for abortion behemoth Planned Parenthood and homosexuals openly serving in the military ranks, something seems to have changed since the 18th and 19th centuries, when Christian worship services were held in the U.S. Capitol.
It wasn’t that long ago, either, when presidents were calling the nation to pray in the face of the ominous advance of Naziism and Fascism. And even as recently as a few decades ago, the major problems in school were chewing gum and talking.
No longer, and the foresight of Thomas Jefferson, who wrote, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever,” could become reality.
That is the premise of the book “The Harbinger” and the No. 1 faith film in the country, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” which have taken the nation by storm.
They both tell the story of Isaiah 9:10 and give evidence that warnings similar to those God gave the nation of Israel before it was taken into captivity are being presented to the United States.
Now there’s a forum set up at WND that allows you to share your perspective on the state of the nation and whether it is being warned by God to clean up its act.
Since its release in March, the film treatment of author Jonathan Cahn’s message in the No. 1 bestselling faith movie or TV show of 2012, while “The Harbinger” has held the No. 1 position on the Amazon charts for 20 straight weeks, as well as remaining among the top five or six documentaries of any kind during that same period.
The book and the movie show the uncanny parallels between events prior to the dispersion of Israel and events taking place in the U.S. today. In fact, the events have continued to unfold even after their release.
The events have all taken place since Sept. 11, 2001, and they all connect to one obscure verse in the Bible – Isaiah 9:10.
“The ancient vow begins with these words: ‘The bricks have fallen, but we will rebuild with hewn stone,’” explains Cahn. “The vow declares Israel’s defiance of God, in the face of a devastating strike on the land. The hewn stone, which begins the rebuilding, symbolizes the nation’s intention to come back stronger than before. The book then reveals the parallel to proclamations by Barack Obama in his first State of the Union message, then Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle the day after 9/11 to a joint session of Congress and former senator and vice presidential candidate John Edwards on the third anniversary of 9/11.”
Cahn also reveals in “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” something that readers and viewers universally find astonishing – that New York’s Ground Zero actually represents more than the former financial center of the country. It represents the exact place at which America was first consecrated to God in prayer by the country’s new leaders.
“When judgment came to Israel, the calamity returned the people’s attention to the place where the nation had been consecrated to God – the Temple Mount,” says Cahn.
“God was calling the nation back to Himself. What about 9/11? Could there be, in the American calamity, as well, a mystery of return? Could there be a prophetic message hidden in the place where it happened? There is a place where America was consecrated to God in prayer. It is also a place linked to a prophetic warning given on that same day – uttered by the nation’s first president – now coming to pass.”
In 1789, newly inaugurated President George Washington gave a prophetic warning at Federal Hall in New York City. He declared that America’s prosperity and protection were dependent upon its adherence to God. Later, the political leaders of the young nation gathered at St. Paul’s Chapel to commit the nation’s future to God’s purposes. That chapel is located at Ground Zero and miraculously survived 9/11 virtually unscathed.
Cahn, the pastor of the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, N.J., says America is uncannily re-enacting ancient Israel’s behavior prior to its judgment and eventual fall. He found a sympathetic ear for his message in WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah, who produced “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” as a follow-up to “The Harbinger.”
“I had a chance to hear Jonathan Cahn’s message last fall,” said Farah. “Then I had an opportunity to read an early manuscript of ‘The Harbinger’ before it was released in January. I was determined to produce this video documentary, ‘The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,’ because I believe its message is the most important one for Americans at this moment in history. In fact, I believe this project may be the most important one of my life. That’s how strongly I feel about it.”
From an uncanny parallel between the destruction – and restoration – of trees to the location of the events that transpired, the documentary explains that God may be giving America a chance to return to Him.
