The mystery of ancient Israel is now gonna replay in modern America. Isaiah 9:10 was included that day in every version for the 16 years prior to 9/11. The Eight Harbinger: The Utterance. To draw any sort of parallel, then, between the fact that the response of the ancient Israelites is recorded in Isaiah 9:10 and the fact that Tom Daschle’s speech is recorded in the Congressional Record, is unacceptable. This has been shown to be WRONG. These "harbingers" include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and "vows" against God supposedly made by … The Sixth Harbinger and Seventh Harbingers: THE SYCAMORE AND THE EREZ TREE, Cahn’s “Ancient, Ancient Mystery of the Shemitah“, http://www.wnd.com/2012/01/harbinger-a-christian-book-phenomenon/, https://truthinmydays.com/on-the-merits-of-the-septuagint-a-response-to-floyd-nolen-jones-the-chronology-of-the-old-testament/, http://www.theconcreteproducer.com/highstrength-concrete/freedom-tower–new-york-city.aspx, http://rew-online.com/1-wtc-rising-on-super-concrete/, http://gothamist.com/2006/04/27/freedom_tower_c.php, http://www.holybibleprophecy.org/2011/09/11/911-10th-anniversary-the-lords-word-in-september-11th-by-elliott-nesch/, http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/us_gdp_history, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_daily_changes_in_the_Dow_Jones_Industrial_Average, Isaiah 9:10 was a pronouncement of doom to Israel unless they repent, There are nine “harbingers” (signs that warn of coming judgment) in Isaiah 9:10, These harbingers have been repeated in the recent history of the United States as a “first shaking”, Since the U.S. has not turned back to God, they have been given a “second shaking”, If America does not repent, she will face God’s judgment, just as Israel did in ancient times. It is the Constitution that actually defines the “principles” and organization of this nation. Does it eerily echo the decline of the United States? Mindful of 2 Corinthians 13:1b – “By the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established” – Cahn wants to find two or three American leaders repeating the statement of Isaiah 9:10. In fact, there seems to be no objective, independent basis for the claim that Isaiah 9:10 is programmatic; this assertion seems to be based on nothing more than the fact that Cahn thinks he has identified a number of parallels between the historical details in Isaiah 9:10 and what is happening in modern-day America. Sycamores are not mentioned. The most obvious is this: what possible justification is there for appealing to Ezekiel 13:14 here? Now, in some detail, it is explained that the same nine harbingers are currently being manifested to America, who faces the same choice Israel had: repent or ignore the harbingers and suffer God’s wrath. Jonathan Cahn’s massive hit book has shocked nearly all readers who have anxiously flipped through its pages. The harbinger had to manifest and so it did, on the very day after the calamity: the ninth harbinger. If we want to look only at record-breaking drops, the pattern looks like this: 1987/10/26 – (58 years) – 1929/10/28 – (30 years) – 1899/12/18. the sixth and seventh harbinger together … happened because they have to happen, they have to be manifest. Ridiculous; defiance by definition requires intent. He does, however, say that there is a prophetic warning for America in Isaiah 9:10, in the form of the nine harbingers. Biblical passages prophecy against the nation that defies God. By September 11, 2004, every object mentioned in the prophecy of Isaiah 9:10 … When did the so-called “second shaking,” which was actually the final destruction of Israel, happen? Isaiah 9:11 is a prophecy of future calamity. Now, one can search carefully through Isaiah 9:10, but he will not find these specifications in the actual text of that passage. One wonders how exactly Cahn’s legions of admirers have missed this painfully obvious fact. If one expression is resisted, another must be found.”. It’s gonna foretell the course of America before it happens and it’s gonna become part of the national record. How is “becom[ing] part of the national record” equivalent to “speaking prophetically”? The entire nation was involved in this existential struggle, through, inter alia, conscription and rationing. But Jonathan Cahn Nevertheless, no matter how much we may want Cahn’s case to be true, we need to examine it carefully. For Israel, Isaiah 9:10 was a prophecy from God as to what would happen to Israel. The rise that began in 2004 and 2005 did not correlate with the “war on terror”; it was due to increasing demand from emerging economies in China and India, and not due to the “war on terror.”. It happened because it had to happen. New York: Basic Books, 2009. We're going to rebuild stronger. Furthermore, defiance cannot be unintentional. It’s a foreshadowing and so it’s limited but it is a wake-up call. had to happen; the harbinger had to manifest. It has never applied to the U.S. or to any other nation. In reality, divine anger is retributive. Really? All nine harbingers manifested in precision, in exactness, harbingers of judgment. This is not the result for which we had hoped. A simple enunciation of your plan as to what you are going to do is not a “prophecy.” To say that American leaders are speaking “prophetically” because they say that “we will rebuild” is unsustainable. The Second Harbinger: The Terrorist – An invented harbinger, as the Assyrians were not terrorists, and certainly not in any way comparable to Al-Qaeda. Someone who has been carried along with Cahn’s case thus far and has not noticed the multitude of errors in it may accept Cahn’s claims here in passing, but if one thinks about it, they are seen to be ridiculous. But that is not the end of the matter; the nine harbingers are followed by what Cahn calls “the second shaking.” We now turn our attention to this following phenomenon. And the “Shemitah” was a specific principle given to ancient Israel, and the nation and the principle have both long since ceased to exist. It gets worse. But like Israel, America has departed and is departing from God and His ways.. Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria— America has been the world’s greatest economic, financial superpower of the past century, but what is the foundation of that superpower that could be laid bare in the time of judgment and that could be linked to 9/11? While nothing more need be said, it can be pointed out that neither is it clear that “fallen bricks” are in fact the “central image” of the 9/11 attack over all other images, and also that there is no mention of “fallen bricks” in the Biblical records of the subjugation and subsequent fall of Jerusalem. And the case Cahn makes does seem very convincing. Now, it is a fact that America did not repent subsequent to the initial strike on the land and yet, unlike ancient Israel, it was not destroyed (by the date of this writing, at least). Cahn’s orientation, however, is diametrically opposed to Brown’s. Leviticus 25:1-4), “At the end of every seven years you shall grant a release of debts. And here ends Cahn’s case. They invented it, they created it, they mastered it, they perfected it, which is to use terror as a strategy to accomplish an end,” which, Cahn says, is the exact strategy of Al-Qaeda. So if you didn’t have 9/11, this would not have happened. The law of witnesses concerned judicial inquiries to discover the truth about what had happened in a past event; it had nothing to do with three people speaking in order to make something true. They invented it, they created it, they mastered it, they perfected it, which is to use terror as a strategy to accomplish an end. so the Shemitah also holds the key to the timing of the judgment on a nation. One need only look at the two foundational documents of the United States, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, to see this. America was dedicated to God on the corner of Ground Zero … America’s consecration ground is Ground Zero. The Harbinger has been enthusiastically received by many who are convinced that the harbingers are not just the product of imagination but are an accurate understanding of what the Bible teaches in this passage. So the eighth harbinger, the vow, the utterance, is manifested in Washington D.C. Let us proceed to examine these putative parallels and see the truth about them. the exact Biblical day specifically ordained to touch a nation’s financial accounts … the exact Biblical day that is a judgment to the nation that has driven God out of its life, the exact Biblical day specifically ordained to touch a nation’s financial accounts. The Second Harbinger: The Terrorist. to them most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ELEVEN YEARS. The remainder of us will spend eternity with the most high. (If Cahn would try to argue that the Babylonians were also terrorists, he would only nullify the supposed “second harbinger,” for, if the “sign of the terrorist” is fulfilled only by proclaiming every attacking nation a terrorist, whether it was or not, then it is no sign at all.). The ancient Israelites reacted to the fallen bricks not with repentance but with a determination to “rebuild with hewn (Hebrew: gazit) stones.” America is doing precisely the same thing: a hewn block of granite was laid on July 4, 2004, as the cornerstone for the Freedom Tower. God’s protective hand over Israel is removed and judgment for Israel’s wickedness and defiance begins. However, a pattern cannot be established on the basis of two samples (any more than a curve can be plotted from two points, which always and only can yield a straight line). So he gets up to speak, and he has no idea what he’s about to do. Cahn’s first pillar, then, fails utterly. that the “worst” stock market crash happened on Elul 29, and the previous “worst” stock market crash happened on Elul 29, exactly seven Hebrew years earlier. Cahn no doubt expects his audience to find this impressive, but it is anything but. One sign of judgment is the laying bare of foundations, the exposing of a nation’s foundations.  “”HARBINGER’ A CHRISTIAN BOOK PHENOMENON: Hits NYT bestsellers list for 2nd week as publisher orders 250,000 more copies.” Posted on January 22, 2012, at http://www.wnd.com/2012/01/harbinger-a-christian-book-phenomenon/,  The New York Times Book Review. This, too, is a harbinger, according to Cahn, and this, too, was fulfilled in America. God’s perfect plan gives every soul who has or will live, exactly what they want – their choice fulfilled. Only it didn’t. On the contrary, the document begins: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. The principle is “one and done.” And Cahn certainly seemed to understand this, as earlier he told us this: The first harbinger of judgment is the breach of the nation’s hedge of protection. And that did, in fact, happen; an ancient tree in a church yard near the World Trade Center was cut down by flying debris when the buildings collapsed – and that ancient tree was a sycamore. The sycamores are cut down, And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the LORD’s release.” (Deuteronomy 15:1-2). "The Harbinger" novel proposes that God has sent America nine omens or warnings of judgment starting with the 9/11 attacks. It is destruction, not a financial shaking, and that is what happened to ancient Israel, in 721 BC. The bricks [03:46 inaudible]. Steve Strang, for example, whose company published the book, writes, Rabbi Cahn’s best-selling book, The Harbinger, has served as a national wake-up call. FIRST, Cahn lists the effects of the “War on Terror,” as follows: All these things which will hurt America, it’ll be another manifestation of this Isaiah 9:10 effect that’s gonna bring about the collapse of the American economy, and it happened just a few days after 9/11. Do understand the significance of this: not even one “harbinger” that “had to manifest” according to Cahn actually manifested in the judgment upon the only other covenant nation in history, Judah. Note: This review is an abridged version of a book of the same title. The final, ultimate sign of judgment was when the calamity, the destruction, touched that temple mount, that same place where the nation had been consecrated, the nation’s consecration ground, its ground of prayer and its ground of dedication. And many agree. Although God gave a prophetic word to Israel as a warning of judgment, Cahn also believes that Isaiah's words have become a sign to warn America of impending judgment. In fact. But we will plant cedars in their place. Again, Isaiah 9 promises final destruction, not a financial shaking, in the absence of repentance. It’s imetiaprve that more people make this exact point. A Runaway Success It takes a special kind of audacity to call this “the Isaiah 9:10 effect” or to say that “the mystery of ancient Israel is now gonna replay in modern America” in reference to an economic shaking, when ancient Israel did not receive an economic shaking but total destruction.  Cahn’s description applies to the Shemitah simpliciter, regardless of whether or not it is being a sign of judgment. cit., p. 18,  The popular belief among the upper classes in this era that, while there must be a God who created the world and set it in motion, he is not a personal God who intervenes any further in the operation of his world. Cahn asserts that September 29, 2008 was an end of a seven-year cycle so there should be another event seven years before that began in the financial realm. New Yorkers come to see the sycamore without realizing that it is an ancient harbinger of judgment. The stock market surges, the effect spreads around the globe. Furthermore, if the 9/11 attack and the 2008 were meant to be “a warning of the, of the final destruction that will come if that nation does not turn back,” did America turn back? When did the “breach,” the first strike, befall ancient Israel? Ironically, the only “harbinger” mentioned is a “breach” (in Jeremiah 39:2), but unlike Cahn’s harbinger, this is not an “initial strike on the land” that is limited in scope and temporary in duration, but is part of the final destruction of Judah. Utterly. "The Harbinger" novel proposes that God has sent America nine omens or warnings of judgment starting with the 9/11 attacks. So he gets up to speak, and he has no idea what he’s about to do … He doesn’t realize ’cause no one would say this if they knew what it was … he proclaims it without knowing it. In “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the focal point of this vow of judgment is the tower rising up out of the ruins of Ground Zero. Let us look again at the relevant passage in Isaiah. an ancient mystery that foretells America’s future, the mystery of ancient Israel is now gonna replay in modern America, second shaking … that’s gonna touch America in its economic power, its financial foundation, extreme slashing of the nation’s interest rates. A sycamore must be struck down and must be connected with the [9/11] attack. Jonathan Cahn’s massive hit book has shocked nearly all readers who have anxiously flipped through its pages. As the following chart shows, the deficit in 2002 was lower than the deficit in 2000. So how exactly does “America’s first action of ‘We will rebuild’” begin nine months before the 9/11 attacks?
