I have just started to again read through the book called The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. It is a pattern in Bible prophecy that is based on Isaiah 9:10. It is specific to the nation of Israel but holds significance for America in the pattern of judgment that came to Israel. Since we in America have been founded on Judeo-Christian principles and we have been blessed by the Lord abundantly and also have been used by Him to spread the Word around the world we fit this pattern. Israel was given the same blessings and the same charge to spread the Word.
The Harbinger is not a book about doom and gloom. While that will most certainly be the case for America if we do not turn back to the Lord and repent, it is actually a call to repentance or an alarm being raised about our kingdom or the condition of our nation spiritually.
The two key verses besides Isaiah 9:10 is Jeremiah 33:3 which talks about God wanting us to call on Him and that He will answer us if we do. The second passage is in Isaiah 55:6-11 in which God tells us to seek Him while He can still be found. He wants us to return to Him! He will have compassion and mercy on us!
America needs to heed these words closely given our lack of faith and trust in Him. While God is indeed love , He is also holy and His holiness requires that sin be dealt with.
The reason this is important is backed up Scripturally in Luke 13 where Jesus says of those who much have been given, much will be required. America fits this to the letter!
The Lord has been slow to totally remove His hedge of protection from America, as there are alot of pure at heart, Bible loving, die for your faith Christians still here!
We are headed quickly towards the decline and disappearance of the American kingdom and towards the Tribulation quickly unless we repent!
Our hope is blessed! Titus tells us that event is the Rapture! But before our hope comes we need to be about reaching the lost while there is still time!
A harbinger is the revealing of a mystery. An alarm for a nation. It is so precise and clear that we can not hope to miss the message the Lord is trying to tell us!
The message of all watchmen, like the Old Testament prophets will not be meant to make you feel good, it is meant to warn you and turn you back to the one who loves you! As a watchman I am required by the book of Ezekiel to speak truth so I have.
In the coming weeks as I continue on this journey in The Harbinger I will be posting new and exciting things that I have learned and feel burdened by the Lord to share.
Keep looking up!
