Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of “The Harbinger,” the million-plus bestseller about 9/11 and its stunning connection to biblical prophecy, and featured in the No. 1 Amazon.com faith film, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” (WND Films), has welcomed the author of “The 9/11 Prophecy,” James F. Fitzgerald, to his church in Wayne, N.J.
Cahn introduced Fitzgerald during a special service at the Jerusalem Center where the messianic Jewish rabbi told his congregation about the amazing history behind the Ground Zero property.
While Cahn’s book is fiction, his novel is based on the extraordinary true events that followed the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, nine mysteries precisely mirroring the prophetic details and circumstances of God’s judgment on Israel described in Isaiah 9:10.
One of these mysteries has to do with Ground Zero itself – the World Trade Center property and the adjacent church property of St. Paul’’ Chapel – that served as a representation of the consecration of the nation at the founding of America. As Cahn writes in his novel, this is exactly where judgment falls on a nation that has turned away from God.
Incredibly, author Fitzgerald’s wife’s family owned that property for nearly a century at the founding of the New York City. Dey Street, which was partially covered over by the Twin Towers, was named after her ancestor in the city. St Paul’s Chapel also stood on their former land. This information is clearly recorded and documented in deeds and written history.
More incredibly, as Fitzgerald testifies in “The 9/11 Prophecy”, he and his wife Betty were sent to New York with their team 14 months before 9/11 with a warning of a surprise attack “in a single hour” that would be a sign pointing to prophetic events in the book of Revelation.
They had just finished the first word-for-word production of “The Book of Revelation” in history. It was being released in Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York at a secular film festival.
Then, the week before they left for New York, the Lord suddenly revealed to Fitzgerald through His word and providence why He had opened this door for them in the media capital of the world.
The message was that the Lord would speak to the city through their production of His word about an imminent judgment reflecting the events of chapter 18 in Revelation…a devastating surprise attack with enormous prophetic significance for the world.
Fitzgerald was stunned and could hardly conceive of a surprise attack upon New York City at a time when America was the world’s sole superpower.
But exactly 430 days later, 9/11 struck the city “in a single hour.” The first building to collapse fell just 56 minutes after being struck.
It was nearly inconceivable. Yet, it was exactly what God had led them to believe would happen when He sent them to the city with His warning.
Furthermore, when 9/11 struck New York, it didn’t hit just anywhere. It hit the very land his wife’s family had owned at city’s founding.
The attack’s location was an astonishing confirmation and witness to their warning.
Not only had the Lord revealed to Fitzgerald what would happen and sent him with His warning (Amos 3:6-7), when it struck it hit upon the property his wife’s family had owned at the city’s origin – the land that figures so importantly in Cahn’s “The Harbinger.”
None of this was fiction or a novel. None of it could be made up. Fitzgerald’s name and production had been posted on the marquee of Madison Square Garden during the film festival. Trinity Church in New York had used his wife’s family’s deeds and lease as later proof of their subsequent ownership of the Ground Zero properties.
When Joseph Farah, founder and editor of WND.com and WND Books, learned of Fitzgerald’s manuscript, he told the author he was skeptical. But that night he read “The 9/11 Prophecy” from cover to cover and couldn’t put it down. He sent a publishing contract the next week.
The book was released in August and has been consistently ranking at Amazon.com ever since.
When Cahn began reading Fitzgerald’s book, he contacted him to ask for research about the Dey property and his wife’s family connection to augment his study. Later, when he introduced the Fitzgeralds to his church while sharing the results of his own astonishing research, the congregation applauded and gasped with amazement.
Cahn had previously written to Fitzgerald: “It’s fascinating how you were led, from the warning presentation, the number of days, the link between your wife and the actual ground! I was also intrigued as I read of the other links, i.e. the Sycamore in your past, etc.”
When they spoke on the phone for 90 minutes, Cahn wrote afterwards: “Again, Jim, it was incredible to talk with you. How the Lord has woven our lives and His purposes! Keep up the good work for His glory.”
Fitzgerald wrote back that both the Old Testament and the New Testament refer to the principle that, “By the mouth of two or three witnesses, the matter shall be established.” (Deuteronomy 19:15; 2 Corinthians 13:1).
In this case, he said the Lord has raised up two completely different voices declaring that 9/11 was a prophetic judgment on America and a sober call for national repentance.
Cahn, a Jewish Christian, has written in his novel that 9/11 was a harbinger of further judgment on a nation without repentance. Fitzgerald, a gentile Christian, has written an actual account of how the Lord sent him and his small team to New York prior to the attack with a deliberate warning of God’s prophetic judgment on the city.
As Fitzgerald writes in “The 9/11 Prophecy,” “What about our witness and warning in July 2000 of an attack on New York City that would point to the destruction of Mystery Babylon in the book of Revelation? Wasn’t the attack on 9/11 a reflection of the Scripture in chapter 18, in multiple ways, just as the Lord had led me to believe it would be?”
Because Fitzgerald’s book is non-fiction, it is filled with 32 pages of photos related directly to the story, including the photo of the marquee of Madison Square Garden shot on July 9, 2000, when the Lord spoke to the city through His word.
For those who would question this means and method of God’s warning, His warning to Israel prior to His judgment in Isaiah 9:10 is recorded in Isaiah 9:8.
Ironically, it says there: “The Lord sent a word against Jacob; and it has fallen on Israel” (Isaiah 9:8).
This is exactly what happened with New York before 9/11.
“The Lord sent a word” against New York City – namely “The Book of Revelation,” “and it has fallen” on the city – precisely what occurred on September 11. The two tallest towers in the world’s preeminent city fell after being struck in a surprise attack.
Furthermore, chapter 18 in Revelation is specifically a prophecy about “the fall” of the great city of mystery – Babylon. Amazingly, the word “fall” is the same word that Isaiah used in describing what would happen in his warning to Israel and is just what took place on 9/11.
Without question, “The 9/11 Prophecy,” along with “The Harbinger” and its companion documentary, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” is a must-read for every person and family who wants to understand what God is doing to call America back from it dangerous path.
