Bipartisan thanks for 'Isaiah 9:10 Judgment'

WASHINGTON – Who says there’s no more bipartisanship in the nation’s Capitol anymore?
There’s at least one point of agreement.
Democrats and Republicans, House members and senators, all are expressing thanks for free gifts sent to each and every one – copies of “The Harbinger,” the No. 1 Christian book of 2012, and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the No. 1 faith video in America for the last 31 weeks.
The latest member of Congress to send thanks to WND for the gifts is Democratic Rep. Charles A. Gonzales of Texas.
He joins Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Texas; Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah; Democrat Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii; Sen. Michael Enzi, R-Wyo., Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss.; and Sen Dan Coates, R-Ind., along with Reps. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., Nick Rahall II, R-W.V.; Lamar Smith, R-Texas; Joe Wilson, R-S.C., and Ben Quayle, R-Ariz.
“I was pleasantly surprised that we received so quickly so many letters of thanks and encouragement for the gifts,” said Joseph Farah, producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” who donated 535 copies of the movie for the cause. “I believe we’ll see even more in the days ahead as more members get a chance to read ‘The Harbinger’ and watch the movie.”
But this isn’t light reading and entertainment. The book and the documentary are dire warnings of God’s judgment impacting America right now following a pattern observed in the Bible toward ancient Israel.
The giveaway was the brainchild of Joe Esposito who traveled across the country with volunteers to hand-deliver the books and movies to each office in the House and Senate.
Esposito, who previously put the message in the hands of every member of the Oklahoma state legislature, personally visited every congressional office to deliver the DVDs and books, to explain why they are vital to understanding America’s plight.
The books were donated by Charisma House, the publisher of “The Harbinger.” The movies were donated by WND, which produced “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
The expenses of the volunteer team were being paid by WND with help from WND viewers and those who believe the powerful message of Jonathan Cahn’s sensational findings about the parallels between the judgment of ancient Israel and the U.S. are worth sharing with public officials around the country.
Now, he said, they’ve been warned.
He compared his delivery to the warning that came to the biblical city of Ninevah from Jonah.
The people in that ancient city were living in sin, but when Jonah took the warning from God to their leaders, they listened, repented and broadcast the news.
The king, in those days, Esposito told WND, caused the message to be proclaimed and published throughout Ninevah.
“They repented, and they were spared,” he said.
“My call to the Congress is to do the same thing,” he said. “A call from the Congress needs to go out to every city, to every inhabitant. There needs to be a proclamation.”
It was in January when “The Harbinger” skyrocketed to the top of the New York Times bestsellers list and stayed there by suggesting America is following in the footsteps of a defiant ancient Israel as recorded in Isaiah 9:10. This week it is No. 6 on the New York Times list.
“If you’ve seen ‘The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment’ and read ‘The Harbinger,’ you know the power of this message to change lives and to focus Americans’ attention on what is at the root of our nation’s problems,” said Farah. “If you haven’t yet seen the film or read the book, you should do that immediately.
“We would like to continue this campaign to distribute the book and movie to elected officials in states across the U.S.,” said Farah, producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.” “But that will require raising some money for subsidizing the cost of books, DVDs and travel and housing for the volunteers. If you believe in the powerful message of this book and movie, please contribute to the campaign.” You can contribute any amount – from $5 to $1,000 – to this campaign.
It was in April when Esposito of Owasso, Okla., picked up his copy of “The Harbinger” and was so stunned by the parallels between the fall of ancient Israel and America’s current struggles that he knew his state’s leaders needed a wake-up call. Three weeks later, having purchased 152 copies of the book out of his own pocket, he delivered them to all members of the Oklahoma legislature.
Isaiah records that Israel had known God and yet turned away from Him. Following a devastating attack by Assyria, rather than returning to God, the leaders declared “with pride and arrogance of heart” a defiant pledge: “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” (Isaiah 9:10 KJV).
The book and movie reveal the startling reality that beginning the day after 9/11, several American leaders began repeating that 2,500-year-old vow, word for word, in speeches in the Capitol. In the film, viewers get to see and hear the actual speeches.
“Having no idea what he was doing, the majority leader of the U.S. Senate [Tom Daschle] was declaring America as under the judgment of God,” Cahn gives as just one example. “It was the reenactment of an ancient mystery – and bore the most grave of consequences.”
In March, WND Films released “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” as a documentary follow-up to Cahn’s stunning research revealing the eerie parallels between the reaction of ancient Israel and the national leaders in the U.S.
Esposito told WND he knew that after the nation’s leaders had repeated the ancient words of defiance over and over again, what is truly needed now is a public declaration of repentance.
After distributing the book in Oklahoma, Esposito got a personal phone call a week later from Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb.
“He was real grateful for my efforts,” Esposito told WND. “We visited, and I made the comment that it’s important the Legislature comes up with resolution or statement referring to ‘The Harbinger’ and the prayer of 2 Chronicles.”
Esposito already has lined up coordinators to do the same thing in the legislatures of Colorado, Ohio, and Tennessee after blanketing the Capitol in Washington.
Help subsidize this campaign with donations now.
The reaction from the reading public has established the significance of the work:
