It is April 30, 1789, the day on which George Washington was inaugurated as the first president of the United States, when America became a fully constituted nation. And that did, in fact, happen; an ancient tree in a church yard near the World Trade Center was cut down by flying debris when the buildings collapsed – and that ancient tree was a sycamore. On this basis, then, Cahn maintains that the erez tree harbinger has been manifested in America. It is the, the ancient vow. the mystery of ancient Israel is now gonna replay in modern America. It should not be necessary to go any further. Even if we ignore the preceding point and proceed to consider each supposed harbinger on its own merits, with its supposed parallel in today’s America, we see that, contra Cahn’s case, the parallels either do not exist or are so general as to be meaningless. That is what we will do. Cahn believes that this is a principle, saying. If not, why should 9/11 and 2008 be considered the Isaiah 9:10 effect if the Great Depression and Pearl Harbor are not? In Stock. Yet it happened while, according to Cahn, America was under God’s hedge of protection. The greatest stock market crash before that came on September 17, 2001, seven years before, and also on 29 Elul. That what is being suggested about Isaiah 9:10 sounds more like a sort of mystical incantation than a prophecy is reinforced when the author introduces the idea of "The Isaiah 9:10 Effect" later in chapter 15. Immediately following these claims, none of which is correct, Cahn says. (Isaiah 9:8-12a). Yes, such a cornerstone was unveiled on July 4, 2004, but it was subsequently removed before construction began. The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn No single event in recent history has shaken the foundation of America quite like the events that occurred on 9/11. What was ancient Israel’s ground of consecration? The $1.3 trillion deficits mentioned by Cahn did not start until eight years after the beginning of the “war on terror,” when the Obama administration took office and began spending wildly on various social programs.  Cahn claims that “This collapse [of September 2008] that comes on the American economy weakens the American economy and hastens the end of the era of America’s reign over the economic global order.” Yet almost five years later, America’s economy remains the world’s largest by far, the U.S dollar remains the world’s reserve currency, and most of the innovation still happens there. (Isaiah 9:11-12a). As the following chart shows, the deficit in 2002 was lower than the deficit in 2000. He does, however, say that there is a prophetic warning for America in Isaiah 9:10, in the form of the nine harbingers. The only new thing that has to be said is in regard to Cahn’s new introductory spin, in which he has again misunderstood the Bible. Isaiah 9:10a makes mention that “The bricks have fallen down,” a vivid image of the destruction wrought upon Israel by the Assyrian attack. Sunday, April 7, 2013 we return to The Harbinger – Part 2 and will take a close look at the Isaiah 9:10 effect on Ancient Israel. Most people would not consider an economic collapse to be a blessing. He asserts that: The backdrop is that of an ancient nation, founded on the Word of God and dedicated to His purposes. Now, what is not mentioned in any of these accounts of the judgment of God on Judah? The Harbinger became a New York Times best-seller the first week of its release in early 2012 and has been circulated on Capitol Hill. This is an attitude of defiance, says Cahn, is being directly replicated by America, who is actually building a new tower, the Freedom Tower, at Ground Zero.

This determination is indicated by the promise to “rebuild with hewn (Hebrew: gazit) stones” in place of the weaker bricks. But if there was, it was breached long before 9/11. The LXX reads: The bricks are fallen down, but come, let us hew stones and cut down sycamores and cedars, and let us build for ourselves a tower. After all, according to the nameless “commentaries” to which Cahn appeals, “if one expression [of divine anger] is resisted, another must be found.” So why would the same manifestation be replayed in 2001 and 2008? America has been the world’s greatest economic, financial superpower of the past century, but what is the foundation of that superpower that could be laid bare in the time of judgment and that could be linked to 9/11? And what sort of tree is a buttonwood tree? And then, with Napoleon finally vanquished, British regulars joined the fray. The Isaiah 9:10 effect: there’s gonna be a second shaking … that’s gonna touch America in its economic power, its financial foundation. The message of this book is clear and anyone that wants to pick it apart is unfortunately missing the point. The harbinger had to manifest and so it did, on the very day after the calamity: the ninth harbinger. Now, one can search carefully through Isaiah 9:10, but he will not find these specifications in the actual text of that passage.
