America’s history // Ancient Israel’s history …

“America is uniquely paralleled to ancient Israel in many ways. From its very conception it was built upon a biblical foundation  and dedication for God’s purposes, as was Israel …

“Now, as with ancient Israel, it is falling away from that foundation.”

— Jonathan Cahn

 

The divine revelation and insight given to Jonathan Cahn — as explained in his books — begins with ancient history.  Amazingly, God’s relationship with direct descendants of a man named Abraham and his wife Sarah, known as Israelites, is connected in an amazing way with modern-day American.

FACTS:

ISRAEL was founded on principles given to them by the Lord God to keep them physically, mentally, and spiritually safe from wickedness.

 

The Hebrew Torah (the first 5 books of the Bible’s Old Testament) was written to remind THE NATION OF ISRAEL of the boundaries set by God. In return for their faithfulness, God promised to provide A SUPERNATURAL HEDGE OF PROTECTION around His people.

 

The Pilgrims and Puritans intended to establish A NATION GOVERNED BY THE PRINCIPLES GIVEN TO ISRAEL BY GOD.   

When George Washington was inaugurated President of the United States, in the first capitol city of New York, he led members of the first Congress to  ST. PAUL’S CHURCH  where he prayed for God’s HEDGE OF PROTECTION around the fledgling nation..

 

God called the Israelites “a stiff-necked people” BECAUSE THEY BECAME DEFIANT and insisted on following their own desires rather than adhering to the principles that God had given to keep them safe from wickedness.

The Lord God spoke to Israel through His prophets, who foretold that THE NATION WOULD CHOOSE to worship false gods. ISRAEL would resent GOD’s HEDGE OF PROTECTION and fall away from Him.

 

For centuries, Americans (collectively) sought to establish and adhere to laws of governance based on the principles given by God to His chosen people, Israel. Their leaders looked to the Lord God for supernatural protection during times of attack from nations who demonstrated aggression and DEFIANCE.

But eventually individuals began to fall away, resenting and abusing God-given laws of governance.

 

In response to ISRAEL’S DEFIANCE, the Lord God allowed TERRORISTS FROM ASSYRIA to breach His  hedge of divine protection and attack the nation.

In 732 B.C., the northern kingdom of ISRAEL was attacked by ASSYRIAN TERRORISTS.  The majority of the direct descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were captured and dispersed throughout the known world.

 

The remaining descendants — primarily the tribes of Judah and Benjamin — could have humbled themselves and enjoyed God’s protection once again. But they CHOSE TO BE DEFIANT,  Saying “with pride in their hearts”:

The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild … ; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them”  (with stronger stone and sturdier trees).

In response to the DEFIANCE OF AMERICA’S LEADERS, the Lord God allowed DESCENDANTS OF THE ANCIENT ASSYRIANS to breach His hedge of divine protection and attack the nation.

On September 11, 2001, descendants of ancient ASSYRIAN TERRORISTS (who spoke the same language) attacked America’s original capitol and DESTROYED THE TOWERS that symbolized America’s rise as a superpower.

 

At one corner of Ground Zero, sits a little,  old chapel — St. Paul’s Church — where America’s first President and members of Congress prayed for divine protection. As the bricks and towers around it fell, St. Paul’s church was protected by an adjacent sycamore tree (a type of “fig tree”).

On September 12, 2001, America’s Congress gathered in Washington D.C. (the second capitol city) to issue a formal response concerning the devastating 9/11 attacks that had dramatically changed the lives of Americans forever. Unaware of the ancient prophecy, Senator Tom Daschle said in part ;

“There is a passage in the Bible, from Isaiah, that I think speaks to all of us at times like this. ‘The bricks have fallen down, BUT WE WILL REBUILD with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.’ … That is what we will do. WE WILL REBUILD and WE WILL RECOVER.”.

 

“It was the reenactment of an ancient mystery — 

and bore the most grave of consequences.”

— Jonathan Cahn

“The Harbinger” and 9/11/2001…

Shortly after September 11, 2001 …

Jonathan Cahn was led in prayer to read about THE ASSYRIAN STRIKE ON ANCIENT ISRAEL (2 Kings 18) in 732 B.C.

As he was reading Isaiah 9, a single verse stood out to him:

“The bricks have fallen down,
    but we will rebuild with dressed stone;
the fig trees have been felled,
    but we will replace them with cedars.” (Is. 9:10)

That verse quoted the Jewish leaders who spoke as they were looking over the ruins of King Solomon’s Temple, DESTROYED BY THE ASSYRIANS who had captured the the Northern Kingdom of Israel (the “lost ten tribes”) and scattered the people, in fulfillment of their prophets’ warnings.

Isaiah 9:10 became the inspiration for Jonathan’s divinely inspired book, The Harbinger.  (ISBN 978-1-61638-610-8)

The Harbinger is written in such a way that it reveals spiritual truths to a broad audience. It is likely to be read by non-believers because of its fictional format. But the prophetic elements revealed have solid TRUTH behind them.

Jonathan finished the book in four months, writing in his spare time! He claims the words would stream onto his computer whenever he sat down to write, as though they existed before he typed them.

But he had never written a book before and had no idea how to go about getting it published. However, he was absolutely certain the book was from God, so he committed his dilemma to the Lord. 

Less than a week later, Jonathan was on his way to speak at a Christian gathering in Dallas, Texas. During a lay-over in Charlotte,N.C., he bowed his head to pray that the hand of God would intercede for His purpose and glory. When he opened his eyes a man sitting next to him started a conversation, then his demeanor changed.

The man began prophesying, saying that Jonathan was writing a book that would was “of the Lord. He foretold that everything in Johnathan’s life was about to change, and he would be known across the land. The man’s words paralleled a a scene he had written in The Harbinger concerning a writer who was told by a stranger that he would write a book about warning of  judgment falling on America.

The man said his name was Hubie Synn. He is the same man who prophesied to David Tyree before the 2008 Super Bowl game between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots, saying that David would have an extraordinary platform for sharing the gospel.  David went on to make a startling play that became known as the greatest in all of Super Bowl history up to that time.

You can read the details in The Harbinger Companion (ISBN 978-1-62136-245-6). Here is the reason that story is important:

Hubie Synn had a connection with Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media, publisher of Frontline Books. Hubie put in a word for the book that he had been divinely told Jonathan was writing. Because of bad weather, Hubie’s flight had been postponed several times, until he finally found himself seated beside a Jewish man whose head was bowed in prayer.

A meeting was arranged between Jonathan and Steve Strang, who read The Harbinger and decided to publish it. Within the first week following its release in 2012, the obscure book became a national best seller.

So how does this all tie into the 9/11 tragedy? Well, the verse that Jonathan was led to read — Isaiah 9:10 — became the focal point of the prophecies revealed in The Harbinger. In the next file, I will begin sharing the details of each prophesy (one per file) and its 9/11 connection.

 

Remembering “The Harbinger” and its author …

In 2013 the Holy Spirit led me to a book that was a “red pill” for me. If you have watched “The Matrix” you know that taking a “blue pill” means you are satisfied with things as they are — no questions asked. Choosing to take the “red pill” means that you desire to go deeper and explore beneath the surface of what most people consider “normal.”
The blue pill causes one to view the world as we’ve been taught to understand it.
The red pill reveals the world as it truly is behind smoke screens and mirrored reflections. 
The Harbinger by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn is for those who choose to be “red-pilled.” It’s for those who may sense the presence of God but have difficulty describing it. It is miraculous storytelling with many twists of truth.
First let’s get to know the author …

Jonathan attended synagogue from an early age, but he discerned a disconnect between what was being taught and what he observed in modern life. 

At age 8, Jonathan decided that God does not exist. At age 13, he became disillusioned with atheism and started searching for answers to his questions.

After a long search, Jonathan concluded that Yeshua, Jesus, is the only person who fulfilled ancient prophecies that foretold the coming of the Jewish Messiah. But his search was intellectual rather than based on a heart-changing decision to know the Son of God.

Jonathan understood that if he were to die, he would be on “the wrong side of judgment. He knew he needed to make a committed decision to follow Jesus, but he DIDN’T WANT TO DO THAT.

SO HE MADE A DEAL WITH GOD … IF God would grant him a long life, Jonathan would turn himself over when he was about to die … in other words, on his deathbed.

Shortly after that his car swerved out of control into oncoming traffic. He should have been killed, but was not injured. It seemed a miracle had occurred.

Then there was a second accident.  His car (with him in it) was completely destroyed when hit by a train. This time he called out to God. And he walked away without so much as a scratch!

SO JONATHAN NEGOTIATED WITH GOD. He promised that he would become a disciple of Christ … on his 20th birthday (about 8 months in the future).  On that day, he drove up a mountain overlooking the Hudson Reiver in New York, knelt and committed his life to following Jesus.

While in college majoring in history, Jonathan studied the scriptures and realized he was being called into full time ministry. After graduation, he prayed for a job that would be like something Jesus would have done. He was awarded a job working with disabled children. One thing led to another until he was chosen to lead The Jerusalem Center / Beth Israel in Wayne New Jersey, as well as the international ministries of Hope of the World.

Please continue reading about Jonathan Cahn in the next “file folder” titled, The Harbingers and 9/11.

P.S. I just realized something. There was a book that stood out to Jonathan Cahn in 1995, which began his journey into Bible prophecy. That book was THE LATE, GREAT PLANET EARTH by Hal Lindsey. In January of 1995, I was in a bookstore and had the same thing happen to me … the book I noticed was the same book! And it is what began my prophecy journey. Praise God! (2/4/19)
