THE HARBINGER MYSTERY PORTENDS AMERICA’S FUTURE

Oct
11

There exists an ancient mystery in which is hidden the secret of America’s future. This mystery lies behind everything from the 9/11 attacks, to the War in Iraq, to the American housing bubble and its bursting, to the crash of Wall Street and the global economy, to the Great Recession and much more, even the President of the United States, according to eschatology expert and biblical scholar Rabbi Jonathan Cahn.

THE HARBINGERS OF JUDGMENT

Before God judges a nation, He sends warning. He sent warning to ancient Israel. He even allowed its enemies to breach its borders in a devastating strike that would traumatize the nation. It was a wake-up call, the call to return to God. But the nation responded with defiance. God then gave Nine Harbingers of Judgment, nine prophetic signs, alarms, and foreshadows of what was to come. Now America is the nation in rapid departure from God’s will. And God has likewise allowed an enemy to breach its borders in a devastating strike, the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. It was, likewise, a wake-up call. But America, like Israel, has not responded with repentance but with defiance. And now the Nine Harbingers of Judgment have reappeared and have done so on American soil. Four harbingers have manifested at Ground Zero, two harbingers in Washington, D.C., and several involving the highest of American leaders, each harbinger containing a prophetic message and warning.

THE WORD OF JUDGMENT ON AMERICA

As the dust settled on ancient Israel after the first attack and calamity, the nation’s leaders uttered a specific series of words. The words formed a vow of defiance (read Isaiah 9:10). It would seal their fate. It would declare that they would not repent before God, but would defy Him instead. It was the Ninth Harbinger. It would seal their fate as a nation and lead to their destruction. The Ninth Harbinger now manifested in America on the very morning after September 11th. It happened in Washington, D.C. On that day, from Capitol Hill, out of the mouth of the Senate Majority Leader, proceeded the exact same words uttered by the leaders of ancient Israel 2,500 years before, in the last days of that nation’s judgment (Isaiah 9:10). Having no idea what he was doing, the Majority Leader was declaring America as under the judgment of God. It was the reenactment of an ancient mystery, and bore the most grave of consequences.

THE BIBLICAL EXPLANATION FOR AMERICA’S ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

According to the ancient mystery revealed in the Book of Isaiah, if after that first calamity and warning, the nation doesn’t return to God but responds in defiance, it will end up triggering a second calamity. It was because of this ancient key, that, seven years after 9/11, the American economy collapsed. In the days after 9/11, the Federal Reserve slashed the base interest rate in an attempt to defy the consequences of the attacks. That action put us on the path leading to the collapse of the American economy seven years later. In 2008, the government made a second fatal mistake, another ill-fated financial decision, which would trigger the collapse of the American economy. Amazingly, it took place on the seventh anniversary of the uttering of the ancient vow on Capitol Hill.

THE WALL STREET SHEMITAH MYSTERY

As the prophets gazed out at the ruins of ancient Israel, they realized that there was a mystery to the timing of God’s judgment. That mystery centered on the biblical Shemitah. Every seventh year, the Shemitah, or Sabbath Year, would cause the land to rest, when sowing and reaping, buying and selling, would come to a standstill. The Shemitah was unique in that it specifically affected the nation’s economic and financial realms, wiping out all accounts of credit and debt. For the nation that departs from God, the Shemitah becomes a sign of judgment. The year of Shemitah reaches its culmination on the last day of the Hebrew year. In September of 2008 came the greatest stock market point crash in American history. This event happened on the biblical day of the Shemitah, the very day when credit and debt, the accounts of the financial realm, are wiped away. Seven years earlier was the second largest crash in American history, it was the one caused by 9/11. The crash took place on the day of the Shemitah. Thus the two greatest financial collapses in American history both happened on the exact same Hebrew day — the day of the Shemitah, the sign of a nation departed from God. And the night after each of America’s stock market crashes came the Feast of Trumpets, the sounding of the shofar, the other biblical sign of judgment.

THE AMERICAN MYSTERY GROUND

When judgment came to Israel, the calamity returned the people’s attention to the place where the nation had been consecrated to God, the Temple Mount. God was calling the nation back to Himself. What about 9/11? Could there be, in the American calamity, as well, a mystery of return? Could there be a prophetic message hidden in the place where it happened? There is a place, where America was consecrated to God in prayer. It is also a place linked to a prophetic warning given on that same day, uttered by the nation’s first President, now coming to pass. The place is Ground Zero. In 1789, newly inaugurated President, George Washington, gave a prophetic warning at Federal Hall in New York City. He declared that America’s prosperity and protection were dependent upon its adherence to God. Later, the political leaders of this young nation gathered at St. Paul’s Chapel to commit the nation’s future to God’s purposes. That Chapel is located at Ground Zero and survived 9/11 virtually unscathed.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT?

Within the Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures, eschatology experts see a specific se

ven-year pattern and progression of God’s blessings and judgments on ancient Israel. God meant this pattern to be a blessing, but because of Israel’s disobedience, it turned into a curse. This same pattern is progressing rapidly in America! We see it in 2001 and 2008. What will happen based on these biblical patterns in 2015? Many prophecy teachers believe another major economic collapse will occur during the next Shemitah year beginning in 25 September 2014 and ending in 13 September 2015.
