Readers and listeners of mine have known for the better part of a year about Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s “The Harbinger” and its urgent message for America. The bestselling book has spread like wildfire throughout the nation, even to our very Capitol. Rabbi Cahn has brought the message before leaders and thrones, the most explosive example of which was at the Inaugural prayer breakfast on January 21 of this year. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZA9zrzAB8w) This new movie I have been honored with reviewing reveals many things, including the fact that the speech that day was on 1 hour sleep and Jonathan was very sick. So many Americans including myself felt such a spiritual SHAKING on 9/11 but could not quite put a finger on WHY and where in the Bible would this possibly be mentioned? A Jewish disciple of Jesus Christ was chosen to tell us. Everything about the Harbinger and its going forth to the nation has been directly orchestrated by God. The Lord’s Spirit is Moving, do you have ears to hear?
“I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel.” Isa. 5:5-7
“So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD”. Ezek. 13:14
The brand new official DVD “The Harbinger Decoded” begins in highly dramatic fashion – appropriately so – recounting the attack of 9/11 and juxtaposing it with the Assyrian attack on ancient Israel in the 8th century BC. My only real criticism of the one-hour film is immediately apparent; the music soundtrack is outstanding, but it is too high in the audio mix; it is difficult at times to clearly hear the words spoken by the narrator or Jonathan Cahn. Cahn is present throughout, explaining in detail the 9 Harbingers in the book presented in the narrative as clay seals given by “The Prophet” to protagonist “Nouriel”. If you are unfamiliar with them, the 9 Harbingers of Judgment on House of Israel and America detailed in Isa. 9:10 are as follows:
1. The Breach (hedge of protection removed, the attack of the Assyrians and 9/11 itself)
2. The Terrorist (the perpetrators) – 9/11 led us to war in Iraq. Iraq is the land of ancient Assyria.
3. The Fallen Bricks (collapsed walls in Israel, collapsed World Trade Center)
4. The Tower (rebuilding in defiance – “freedom tower”. Septuagint renders Isa. 9:10 “let us build ourselves a Tower”)
5. The Gazit Stone (rebuilding in defiance “stronger than before” with giant stone quarried from a mountain – laid as the foundation of “freedom tower” on July 4, 2004)
6. The Sycamore (Tree uprooted at ground zero protected St. Paul’s Chapel)
7. The Erez Tree (Tree of defiance planted to replace Sycamore – “tree of hope”)
8. The Utterance (public defiance by leaders, made Sept. 11, 2004 by Senator John Edwards, quoted Isa. 9:10)
9. The Prophecy (public defiance by leaders, future tense, asking for Judgment, made Sept. 12, 2001 by Senator Tom Daschle, quoted Isa. 9:10)
As in the book, the revelations don’t end there. Among other things, the Sabbatical year (“Shemita”) is detailed. Just as in ancient Israel, the Shemita is Economic judgment to an unrepentant nation. On the Biblical day of Elul 29: Sept. 17, 2001, because of 9/11, the dow jones was down 7%; exactly 7 Biblical years later on Sept. 29, 2008, the bell of Wall Street refused to ring and again it crashed down 7%, specifically 777 points. (I would advise that you take heed that the next Elul 29 in the cycle is Sept. 13, 2015)
The account of the miracle catch by David Tyree in the Super Bowl of 2008, and a prophet named Hubie Synn is well worth your time to research as it was the catalyst for The Harbinger’s release to the public. The way God sees to the smallest detail in His Plan is enough to fill us with Faith for a lifetime.
As if all this weren’t enough, there is one final mystery that brought me and many others to tears. It is the “Consecration Ground”. Our first President George Washington was inaugurated at Federal Hall in New York City in 1789. In his first address, he stood in the hall (across the street from the NY Stock Exchange today) and prophesied that the blessings of heaven will be removed if America ever left God. Then he walked down the street with the entire government to a church called St. Paul’s chapel and they prayed – they dedicated this new nation to God and Jesus Christ that day; we were consecrated on April 30th. That little old church was the only building saved at Ground Zero on 9/11. Yes friends, just as with ancient Israel, the Judgment of God returned to the VERY SAME GROUND of its foundation. Not only is that church a living witness, but the literal foundation of Federal Hall was CRACKED as the Towers came down that day. God is real, and He is not happy.
The film concludes with an admonition that the Harbingers are continuing. For example, President Obama has visited Ground Zero and signed the crowing Beam with…Isa. 9:10. Our tower of babel is complete. Interesting to note the photo of that moment shows a “One World” banner: http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/imagecache/embedded_img_full/image/image_file/p061412ck-0581.jpg?itok=yGqkaP7j
Indeed, the Tower of old was meant to unite the world against God. The time is soon coming when one world government will rise. Will you resist? Also of note, the Erez “tree of hope” planted to replace the Sycamore is now dying. Where do you place your hope? Rabbi Cahn addresses what the future holds if we continue to defy God and His Word. More judgment: to our infrastructure, economy, military; natural and manmade disasters etc. But he reminds us that there is one solitary Hope. This is the Call of the Church. Our only salvation is “Yeshua” – Jesus. Cahn says, “The Time is late, growing darker. We have to shine brighter – MORE RADICAL. Live ALL OUT for God. The call is on YOU. You are the Watchman, Blow the Trumpet.”
Also included in this DVD are 8 sections of fantastic Bonus content. From the most often asked questions about The Harbinger, to the testimony of Cahn’s individual salvation “Atheists and Trains”, to the role of America in the End Times, they are not to be missed. You need to own this documentary and SHARE IT with all in your circle of influence. Those who won’t read books or don’t care about the Bible etc. will watch it and learn. I wanted to end this review with the words of Jonathan Cahn from one of the Bonus sections, “The call for God’s people living in the end times is you have to BE STRONG. Don’t get distracted. Stay strong in the Word and His presence every day. Whatever God asks you to do, DO IT. When the dark is there, it’s a time for God’s people to be the greatest they ever have been. It’s a call to Greatness.”
Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?
“Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.” Isa. 9:14-17
