The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future


The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's futureThe Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future by Jonathan Cahn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Jonathan Chan over-all premise is correct. God's blessings are not longer on America. However, I do not buy the detailed account of Isaiah 9:10 applying to the current situation and historical founding of our nation. The book is interesting to read. If you enjoy novels and are a student of American history you will enjoy this book. It is basically a dialogue between two men and then one of the men relaying the conversation to a lady. The following quotes from the book were informative to me. I trust you will enjoy reading them.

The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself hath ordained.  ~George Washington's First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789

Redemption comes not only apart from calamity ... but also through it.

That which God designs, in smiting us, is to turn us to Himself and to set us seeking Him,; and, if this point be not gained by lesser judgments, greater may be expected ...  ~"Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible," vol. 4, Isiah to Malachi, 61

God's will is that none should perish. Judgment isn't His desire ... but His necessity. The good must bring evil to an end, or else it would cease to be good. And yet His mercy is still greater then judgment. His heart always wills for redemption. And therein lies the hope.

What should concern us more [speaking of the repentance of the people of Nineveh] that judgment didn't happen as proclaimed or that thousands of lives were saved? You see, the one who wills for judgment is man, not God. The heart of God wills for salvation. Greater than His judgments are His compassions.
