It was about this time of day, around lunchtime here in England,13 years ago when a consultant at the office where I worked gasped at what she saw on her pc monitor – the first video footage of the horror that had happened about an hour ago in New York. An aircraft ploughing into one of the twin towers in New York. If I remember correctly, it was soon followed by live news feed of the second adjacent atrocity. You know the rest in that day of world-changing infamy.
My readers may have read Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s novel The Harbinger. I trust those who are unfamiliar with it will bear with me in not summarising it. Some are of the opinion there’s a need to be aware of possible inaccuracies as far as scripture’s concerned, as advised in a couple of supposedly ‘discerning’ reviews here and here. Yet facts prove a theory, as born out for Cahn’s unusual message.
Although I haven’t yet read his book I must convey interesting points he made in a God TV programme I’d recorded and was catching up with.
I’d missed the beginning of The Harbinger Continued but it caught my attention because friends we’d seen on holiday had recommended the book. Rabbi Cahn spoke about the replacement to the Twin Towers in connection with Isaiah 9:10 judgement. The new one is to be higher and stronger than before and to show the world, as an embodiment of America, that it stands defiant. The new tower became controversial and its completion got delayed until after Cahn’s book was published. (For photos see NY Daily News.)
It was fascinating to learn about the background to this book, and a lot of confirmatory material and the way it turned up.
In The Harbinger a date is given to the ‘mystery’ of Ground Zero – April 30th. In fact, it’s the day the tower broke the height ‘barrier’. That mystery, claims Cahn, continues and is linked to various American issues he names. Furthermore, he later realised the Isa 9:10 passage, or ‘Harbinger Scripture’ was linked to Genesis 11’s Tower of Babel.
After his book was out he learned that a photographer had found a Bible buried in the rubble of Ground Zero. Blown apart and charred with only one page showing, the man took a photo before being whisked out of danger. Later, upon looking at the picture he broke down weeping, for this is what he read that was buried in those remains:
‘Come let us build for ourselves a tower.’
Then 7 months after publication something came out in the news causing people who’d read the book to gasp, including himself Cahn claims. And he says he didn’t believe it, “No that’s too much, too much!”. He describes what he’d seen on TV reports:
“President Obama, the leader of America – remember leaders are important in this ‘mystery of national judgement’ – he goes down to Ground Zero. He is shown the tower – the last of ‘The Harbinger’ is going up.
“They present him with a beam from the tower that’s going to be the highest beam on the tower. The final beam that’s going to crown all the nine ‘harbingers’. It will mark the highest elevation of ‘the harbinger’. And that beam is significant, as the tower’s all about the height – and this was to be the crown of it all, of the vow: ‘we will rebuild’.
“(Obama) came there to write words on the beam of the tower to crown the tower. He can write anything he wants. What he writes in modern American prose is the ancient ‘vow of destruction’ of Isaiah 9:10…on the crowning beam as the highest words in America…The president writes…
‘We remember, we rebuild, we come back stronger’.
“It repeats the ancient defiant vow that ascends to heaven that led to ancient Israel’s destruction.
“AND although not written in future tense as the Hebrew was, and as in his first major speech to Congress, but done in the present tense, America is doing it…(explains Hebrew)
“And Obama adds two extra words at the start, which makes it the same length of eight words in the Hebrew – yet in both the fourth word is ‘rebuild’, all done in the president’s ignorance of scripture!
“So now the words are on ‘The Tower of America’.”
Daily Bible Readings
Particular points I wish to ponder lie in what he said about the date itself, which are not in the book. Jonathan Cahn calls it ‘the third manifestation’ and he had no idea at all about it when writing the book.
He mentions that God used various supernatural ways of getting his and warnings to Israel’s leaders. Apparently the origin of Cahn’s was in a stranger’s prophetic word, “The Word goes forth”. Now he asks,
“Is it possible that God was actually sending this word, that it would fall upon the nation (as at the start of in Isaiah 9)?
“Is it possible that God was sending this word and this connection between Isaiah 9:10 and September 11th, to fall upon America in a massive way that had nothing to do with The Harbinger – even taking place before it became a book?
“Is it possible that He wanted this connection to go forth on a massive scale?
He goes on to refer to the popular One-year Bible, which is available in every version of the Bible.
“For every day there is an appointed scripture so that in one year you’ll read through the whole Bible. If you go to the One-Year Bible – any version – open up to the scripture of ‘the harbingers’; Isaiah 9:10 – the scripture that identifies the beginning strike of judgement upon a nation – you will look and you will see a date above that scripture.
“The date above Isaiah 9:10 is September 11th – in every One-Year Bible – for every year!
“The Bible itself is marking the beginning of national judgement as September 11th!
“It’s identifying the attack as September 11th!”
Now consider what a Greek lady who acted as amanuensis, or scribe, to Jesus wrote in 1991 – like Apostle John had been in writing to seven churches in Revelation 2&3.
Forewarning of Sept 11th 1991
On that date 10 years to the day before the Twin Towers attack in New York, Vassula Ryden was with the Lord. She records in The Foundations of the Earth Will Rock:
Jesus suddenly changed tone and, after waiting a few seconds, with a tone very grave that left me in awe said:
“…the earth will shiver and shake – and every evil built into Towers will collapse into a heap of rubble and be buried in the dust of sin! above, the Heavens will shake and the foundations of the earth will rock!”
This profound, prophetic word closes with Jesus’ call to
“…repent and ask the Father to relent; soon, very soon now, the Heavens will open and I shall make you see,”
Signed, “The Judge”.
Please note that, following the New York attack, Vassula adds,
“I want people to be careful how they interpret this message. Interpreting prophecy is not easy, unless it is given through the light of the Holy Spirit. This apocalyptic message should be interpreted in the following way:…” (as in the letter’s footnote 2).
May the Holy Spirit be with you in this…
