I had never heard of Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn until a friend called me late last year and told me about an interview he was doing on Sid Roth's show regarding a book he had written, creating a parallel between the fate of ancient Israel and America. Intrigued, I watched it, astounded at the evidence he gave. I knew I had to read his book. And I finally got my chance the other day.
It wasn't a non-fiction book as I had expected. Rabbi Cahn wrote it in the form of a story to make it an easier read for those who have a hard time making it through non-fiction. Don't pick this up expecting a great novel--there is no characterization, little scene movement, and the writing isn't brilliant. Most of the book is dialogue (much untagged), but then Rabbi Cahn isn't a novelist. He's a messenger with a very important message. Personally, I didn't have any problem getting through the book, and finished it in two days--the mind-boggling revelations drove me onward.
Every American should read The Harbinger. It's hard to think of 9/11 as a Divine judgement and warning, but as Rabbi Cahn compares the tragedy to Scripture and the last days of ancient Israel, the evidence becomes clear, shedding new light on America's frightening response, and the economic troubles that followed. I learned something new about our country's beginnings. Did you know that New York City was our nation's first capital (not D.C.), and the little church at Ground Zero was the place where this nation was first consecrated to God as George Washington's first act as the first President of the United States? The place where the twin towers came down really is symbolic and full of meaning in a way that no one realizes, and this is only one detail out of many presented in The Harbinger.
So does America have a future? Is there hope? Not without God. We need to heed God's warning, repent, and turn back to Him as a nation. Only then will He restore the hedge of protection that has kept America safe and propserous all these years. If we don't . . . I'm moving to Australia. (Hehe, had to end on a light note. :-)
"If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." --2 Chronicles 7:14
