isaiah 9:10 harbinger

Discover the signs and manifestations that have appeared in America and the world up to this very moment--and what they reveal about the future. The ancient Israelites vowed to rebuild with hewn stones, not just to put one hewn stone on temporary display. The Syrians before and the Philistines behind; Prima facie this all may seem astounding, but a closer look reveals that Cahn’s case here, too, is far off the mark. To draw any sort of parallel, then, between the fact that the response of the ancient Israelites is recorded in Isaiah 9:10 and the fact that Tom Daschle’s speech is recorded in the Congressional Record, is unacceptable. He claims to discover yet another principle in the Bible: (The impossibility of proving a principle on the basis of one example seems to continue to escape Cahn’s notice.) Topics include: Antichrist, Armageddon, 666, Tribulation, Rapture, Millennium, Israel, Second Coming, Mark of the Beast, Revelation, Daniel, and much more! Terrorists are not mentioned. Antithetically, the Constitution makes it crystal clear who is the motive force for this new nation: “We the People.”  Blessings are not the result of obedience to God’s word; rather it is something Americans gain for “ourselves.”  Good government, justice, tranquillity, protection, liberty, success – none of these come as a result of following “God and His ways” but are gained by Americans for themselves by means of their “Constitution,” a Constitution that carefully omits any reference to God. Cahn provides the following graphic in his own DVD presentation: What this graphic clearly shows is that the “extreme slashing of the nation’s interest rates” began in January of 2001, nine months before the 9/11 attacks. The greatest stock market crash before that came on September 17, 2001, seven years before, and also on 29 Elul. 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. On this basis, then, Cahn maintains that the erez tree harbinger has been manifested in America. And this is prophetic in so many ways … He’s proclaiming judgment on the nation from Capitol Hill on the very day after 9/11, that there would not be national revival in the wake of 9/11 but there would be national defiance, and this is an ominous, ominous thing. In “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the focal point of this vow of judgment is the tower rising up out of the ruins of Ground Zero. How Cahn’s readers can swallow this claim and forget all about Pearl Harbor is difficult to understand. We want it to be true. Then, because the words of Daschle’s speech are recorded in the Congressional Record, Cahn says. No, it doesn’t. Rabbi Cahn: Well, in The Harbinger, it speaks to the nine Harbingers, and one of them is this tree. Order 5 DVDs of Any 1 Title & Get 33% off! I know there is only the smallest measure of inspiration that can be taken from this devastation. (8.50 per DVD) Cahn goes on to identify this foundation as the New York Stock Exchange, and goes on to point out that the NY Stock Exchange was originally called the Buttonwood Association, formed by the Buttonwood Agreement, so named because it was signed under a buttonwood tree. So that was the genesis of the Isaiah 9: 10 Judgment. The harbinger had to manifest and so it did, on the very day after the calamity: the ninth harbinger. The harbinger had to manifest and so it did, on the very day after the calamity: the ninth harbinger. So there is no basis for trying to link the Shemitah to America. America chose defiance rather than repentance, says Cahn, and “without repentence [sic] there comes a second shaking.”  Cahn calls this “The Isaiah 9:10 Effect,” which he defines thus: The attempt of a nation to defy the course of its judgment apart from repentance will instead set in motion a chain of events that will bring about the very calamity it seeks to avert. If what happened in Isaiah 9 is replaced with claims from commentaries (and erroneous claims, at that), this can no longer be described as an “Isaiah 9:10 effect.”  We have indeed now wandered far from the Bible. It is not the cost of the “war on terror,” then, that is causing problems for the American economy. if you didn’t have 9/11, this would not have happened. While the latter seeks to discredit the Bible, Cahn wants people to believe the Bible, and, specifically, warnings of judgment that is to come upon the United States of America. However, the magnitude of the stakes makes it of prime importance to. All Rights Reserved. The account is told in 2 Kings 24-25, 2 Chronicles 36, and Jeremiah 39. U.S. soldiers undoubtedly came into contact with actual descendants of the ancient Assyrians of Isaiah 9:10 when they went to war in Iraq. The number of parallels he has adduced between ancient Israel and modern America seem stunning. Someone who has been carried along with Cahn’s case thus far and has not noticed the multitude of errors in it may accept Cahn’s claims here in passing, but if one thinks about it, they are seen to be ridiculous. Who say in pride and arrogance of heart: Cahn tells us, Buttonwood is another way of saying “the sycamore tree.”. But if there was, it was breached long before 9/11. Ancient Israel was required to live according to the very specific Mosaic law by covenant, they were refusing to live according to it and they knew it, and they had been warned specifically by prophets of God that destruction would come upon them for this. No matter how it’s looked at, Cahn’s analysis simply does not fit the facts. Edwards and other American political leaders (or, more likely, their speechwriters) cast about in the Bible for some verse that could be used to address a situation in which “bricks have fallen,” and Isaiah 9:10 was the obvious – indeed, the only – choice. that the “worst” stock market crash happened on Elul 29, and the previous “worst” stock market crash happened on Elul 29, exactly seven Hebrew years earlier. Again, he is wrong, as the following chart[19] shows: As can be seen from the chart, oil prices did not skyrocket after 9/11; in fact, they did not duplicate the historic high of 1981 until 2005 (and, in real terms, not until 2008). the greatest stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. Sycamores are not mentioned. Yet it happened while, according to Cahn, America was under God’s hedge of protection. He says. Judah was conquered by the Babylonians, not the Assyrians, so the “sign of the terrorist” was not fulfilled in this case. For this harbinger to manifest, the vow would have to be spoken in the nation’s capital by a national leader, as it had been in ancient Israel. (Or can we appeal to the “ancient mystery” of Matthew 20:16 – “So the last will be first, and the first last” – to get around this problem?). Isaiah 9:10 is a symbol of the nation of Israel’s defiance to the calamities that befell her and rather than repenting before God, Israelite leaders boasted that they would rebuild to … The Third Harbinger: The Bricks – Fallen bricks are a universal feature of military attacks upon cities and therefore any one case can carry no special significance. The founders are justifying this new nation in “the opinions of mankind” rather claiming it is the will of God. And this is the form of the release: Every creditor who has lent anything to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not require it of his neighbor or his brother, because it is called the LORD’s release.” (Deuteronomy 15:1-2). This harbinger is also verbal, but it is not about what is, but what is to come; a prophecy. These "harbingers" include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and "vows" against God supposedly made by … God’s perfect plan gives every soul who has or will live, exactly what they want – their choice fulfilled. Key Verses: Isaiah 9:9-10 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, "The bricks are fallen down, but we had to happen; the harbinger had to manifest. Just as ancient Israel was attacked by terrorists, then, so too was America. There are no “harbingers” in Isaiah 9:10. How much time passed between 732 BC and 721 BC? These signs as applying to America and their amazing fulfillments are listed in the book "The Harbinger" by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. The Third Harbinger: The Fallen Bricks. The harbingers begin with a breach in a nation’s security and a vow of defiance that brought destruction to ancient Israel (Isaiah 9:10) Is The Harbinger fiction or nonfiction, a story or real? Cahn’s purpose in writing this book was not to entertain, but to wake America up to the danger it faces: I wrote The Harbinger as a book of hope – a call to salvation, repentance and revival. What he’s saying is America’s policy now, America’s course, will be Isaiah 9:10. In “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the focal point of this vow of judgment is the tower rising up out of the ruins of Ground Zero. [2]  The book is The Harbinger,[3] written by Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn. These "harbingers" include the Great Recession seven years after 9/11 along with several surprising coincidences at Ground Zero and "vows" against God supposedly made by … In the absence of a clear word in Scripture about this matter, how can we know whether Isaiah 9:10 is programmatic or not? Biblical passages prophecy against the nation that defies God. Moving from the risible to the ludicrous, Cahn turns to what he calls “the mystery of the Shemitah.”  He rightly says. There is no “ancient, ancient mystery of the Shemitah.”  Q.E.D. Let us move on to examine his claims regarding this “second shaking.”. the greatest economic disaster since the Great Depression. Three years after the terrorist attack[9], a Norway spruce tree was planted in the exact spot in which the sycamore had once stood, at the corner of Ground Zero. This is the “second shaking”. The Ninth Harbinger: The Prophecy – No prophecy – as defined in the Bible – was uttered, and the text of Daschle’s speech cannot fairly be construed as a proclamation of defiance. The proclamation by Israel in Isaiah 9:10 is both a vow and a prophecy. And yet we wonder about those amazing parallels between ancient Israel and modern America. And spur his enemies on, Gazit stones are not mentioned, nor stones of any sort. 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. Granted, we have a very limited data set, as there has only ever been one covenant nation in history, and that is Israel. corrective, which can only be brought out by repentance] are brought out,” it follows that “divine anger” must always result in repentance, and that is patently not so. The fact that the covenant between God and Israel was made at God’s initiative, not man’s, runs throughout the Old Testament. Yet again, there are a plethora of problems with Cahn’s putative ninth harbinger. Isaiah 9:10 was included that day in every version for the 16 years prior to 9/11. the sixth and seventh harbinger together … happened because they have to happen, they have to be manifest. This idea rests on the following two pillars: The nine harbingers Cahn identifies are the following: The Fifth Harbinger:      The Gazit Stone, Only four of these items are explicitly mentioned in Isaiah 9:10, viz. There remains still one more problem with Cahn’s case for the “ancient, ancient mystery of the Shemitah.”  It is the most obvious problem, one that utterly destroys Cahn’s argument, even without any of the previous problems. Isaiah 9:10 is programmatic of how God deals with rebellious nations. In sum, then, none of the economic problems attributed to the “war on terror” by Cahn is actually a product of the “war on terror.”  Yet he now goes on to claim that the financial downturn of 2008 is also a result of 9/11. Finally, while the details of this situation may meet the arbitrary, ad hoc standards set by Cahn for his eighth harbinger, the fact is that Edwards is just one senator among many; he is not the President or the entire senate, and to suggest that his personal remarks in such a low level meeting as the Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast, which in no way speaks on behalf of the American government or people, can be taken as a vow on behalf of America, thus “transforming” “the ancient vow” “now into America’s vow” is ridiculous. On November 11, 1813, 900 Canadians defeated 4,000 Americans at the Battle of Crysler’s Farm, ending the Americans’ St. Lawrence Campaign. Cahn sums it up: both crashes took place on Elul 29. the day when a nation’s financial accounts are wiped away. In fact, America was founded originally by the Puritans to be a second Israel,” complete with its own consecration day corresponding to Solomon’s dedication of the temple; Washington, like a latter-day Solomon, speaking of God’s providence and warning against turning away; and prayer and consecration by the new government. Nor was the September 17, 2001 crash the worst before that. Frankly, the hermeneutics here is embarrassing. In the Book of Isaiah, an obscure passage describes the demise of ancient Israel. If not, why should 9/11 and 2008 be considered the Isaiah 9:10 effect if the Great Depression and Pearl Harbor are not? He claims: The extreme rates open up an era of easy money, causes unprecedented, uh, borrowing and lending, credit bubbles, uh, housing bubbles. And then comes the attempt to dragoon the Shemitah into the case against America: When did the economic collapse of America happen? For Israel, Isaiah 9:10 was a prophecy from God as to what would happen to Israel. Isaiah 9:10 is programmatic of how God deals with rebellious nations; in other words, there is a specific pattern of events, or harbingers, that is followed as God moves from warning to final judgment. The one leads into the other. It seems more like special pleading. brutal, violent, vicious people … the Nazis of the ancient world. Since 1985, millions of Americans had been reading this verse on Sept. 11 for 16 years before 2001! It takes a special kind of audacity to call this “the Isaiah 9:10 effect” or to say that “the mystery of ancient Israel is now gonna replay in modern America” in reference to an economic shaking, when ancient Israel did not receive an economic shaking but total destruction. Yes, the ancient Israelites in 732 BC made a decision to replace the sycamores that had been cut down with cedars, but does it really follow from that that every time a nation is judged, it must involve an actual sycamore being cut down and an actual cedar being planted in its place? In fact, there is no such basis. Now, Cahn mentioned the Great Depression, and this surfaces yet another problem with his case. Fill in fields below to receive the gifts: An obscure passage in the Book of Isaiah describing the fall of ancient Israel has, since September 11, 2001, been eerily re-enacted in the United States exactly as it originally occurred in the time of the great prophet of Israel leading to the nation’s demise. Seven separate cuts reduced the rate from 6.5% to 3.5%, all before 9/11. The bricks are fallen down Houses made of bricks, which were without the cities besieged and destroyed by the Assyrians; of which the haughty Israelites made no account, looking upon such a desolation as little, or no loss at all: but we will build with hewn stone, so that the houses will be better and stronger, more beautiful, and more durable: the sycamores are cut down; But the amazing thing is, it happened. How is it (The Harbinger) doing in the marketplace? There is more, as we have seen. The mystery of ancient Israel is now gonna replay in modern America. Furthermore, evangelicals are rightly dismayed at the path America has been taking away from its founding values for a long time now, and if only there could be a clear warning to show the American people, a warning so clear that it could not be ignored, then, perhaps, they would change their ways. The harbinger of the sycamore appears in America, the sign of uprooting for a nation – the sixth harbinger. The Isaiah 9:10 effect: there’s gonna be a second shaking … that’s gonna touch America in its economic power, its financial foundation. Modern-day terrorism as practiced by Al-Qaeda (and others, including the PLO and the now-defunct Tamil Tigers) is a form of asymmetric warfare used by a nearly impotent group against a vastly superior power that it cannot confront militarily. So he gets up to speak, and he has no idea what he’s about to do … He doesn’t realize ’cause no one would say this if they knew what it was … he proclaims it without knowing it. Now, what is not mentioned in any of these accounts of the judgment of God on Judah? In this stunning new documentary The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment, Rabbi Cahn unravels the mystery behind this seemingly innocuous Biblical verse, and shows that ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America, just as they once did in Israel. The average deficit during the first six years of the “war on terror” was $281 billion. will not cease until its purposes [i.e. Yet, for those enamored with The Harbinger and still not convinced of its serious biblical problems, consider a few of the harbingers themselves (there’s not enough space here to evaluate all of them). "It makes the case that the devastating attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, represented the same kind of limited judgment by God experienced by ancient Israel as reflected in the Book of Isaiah. [20] Sowell, Thomas. It is also interesting to note that the top nine all happened while, according to Cahn, America was still under God’s “hedge of protection.”  How does Cahn explain that a stock market crash that is supposed to be a manifestation of God’s judgment after He has removed His hedge of protection from America is not as bad as nine previous crashes that happened while America was under God’s hedge of protection? “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” is a WND documentary adaption of Jonathan Cahn’s “The Harbinger. Is this not making the Bible fit events, rather than seeing whether events fit what the Bible says? It’s imetiaprve that more people make this exact point. Have North American Evangelicals decided 1 Thessalonians 5:21 is no longer important? We will rebuild and we will recover.”  “That is what we will do” – he’s referring to Isaiah 9:10, he just said it, so what, this is mind boggling. When judgment came upon ancient Israel in Isaiah 9, the very passage on which Cahn builds his entire case, did it strike Jerusalem? They were foretelling the nation’s course of defiance and judgment and it becomes part of the prophetic record of the Bible, because Isaiah quotes it as a comment on it from God’s judgment on the vow, so it also becomes a prophetic utterance in that respect.
