Is America under judgment for turning away from God as ancient Israel did?
That is the provocative question addressed by a video documentary produced by WND’s Joseph Farah, edited and directed by award-winning filmmaker George Escobar and featuring messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the New York Times bestseller “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future.”
The two-hour, two-DVD documentary is based on shocking research by Cahn, who heads the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, N.J. he suggests an otherwise obscure passage in the Book of Isaiah is since Sept. 11, 2001, being uncannily re-enacted in the U.S. just the way it originally played out in the time of the great prophet of Israel leading to the nation’s captivity and dispersions.
Cahn reveals what he calls “an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future and the collapse of the global economy.”
“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy.”
The key to decoding the harbingers, he says, is found in understanding the seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10 (King James Version), what it meant to Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today.
“The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
These words were first uttered by leaders in Israel and in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali – an attack the prophet makes clear is actually part of a limited judgment by God against apostasy. It wasn’t meant to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries.
But, says Cahn, Israel didn’t take the cue. Instead, the response from the people in Isaiah 9:10 is one of defiance. The brick buildings were toppled, but they vowed to build bigger and better. The little sycamore trees may have been uprooted, but they vowed to plant bigger and better cedars in their place.
God, speaking through Isaiah explains what will happen as a result of their pride and arrogance and failure to heed the harbinger: Bigger and more potent attacks will follow. Because neither the northern kingdom of Israel or the southern kingdom of Judah truly repents, the first is eventually swept away by Assyrian invaders and the latter is carried off into captivity by the Babylonians for 70 years.
But what does this have to do with the United States of America — particularly what the U.S. experienced on 9/11 and since? Cahn has found some strikingly eerie parallels.
“The parallels are truly stunning,” says Farah. “In fact, they are overwhelming in their number and their exactitude. I am persuaded God is trying to tell America something and Rabbi Cahn has found the key to unlocking the message.”
– Does a relatively obscure verse of scripture hold the secret to the pain and suffering America has been experiencing in increasing doses since 9/11?
– Are America’s key leaders unknowingly fulfilling a prophetic destiny of national judgment by uttering words from the Bible they don’t comprehend?
– Is the United States following in the footsteps of ancient Israel with a spirit of defiance against God leading to increasingly severe judgments?
– Is America in danger of impending judgment? And is this judgment revealed in an ancient mystery that foretells current events down to the exact dates?
– What can Americans learn that can prevent their nation from falling like ancient Israel did when it failed to heed God’s warnings?
