Harbingers are signs that God has put in His Word to warn a nation of impending destruction (Isaiah 9:10). Some people respond to destruction with arrogance against God and make plans of their own to rebuild. A harbinger is not to bring fear, it’s to bring a nation to repentance, so that destruction is averted. If the people don’t wake up they are heading to destruction. God has to lift His protective hand and the Nation has to be shaken. There is a pattern that God uses to warn His people because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
God desires for Israel to come back but if they do not come back then they will respond in defiance. The prophet Isaiah records what they said.
Isaiah 9: 9-12 “8The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. 9And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, 10The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into 11Therefore the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; 12The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.”
According to expert Jonathan Cahn there are Nine Harbingers or Nine Prophetic Signs that have already occurred in America that took place during the days of ancient Israel. The exact same nine harbingers that were recorded in Isaiah 9: 10-12 that happened to Israel have all now appeared on the United States of America soil. It makes sense since America and Israel are the only countries in World history that were completely founded upon the Word of God.
Harbinger One: The Breach, a break in protection.
In ancient Israel the Assyrian army invaded Israel, specifically Jerusalem. This was during the days of the prophet Elijah. In the USA, terrorists attacked the twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001. The US leaders responded the exact same way the ancient Israel leaders responded.
Harbinger Two: Terrorists attack.
In ancient Israel, Assyria conquered Israel, while crushing the military, and capturing the king and its citizens. All terrorism originated from one people in the Bible and that was the Assyrians. They made this one strike on the land and then the terror was over. In the USA, terrorists flew kidnapped airplanes into the twin towers and brought destruction. The terrorist who came to America on 9/11 came from the same region of the ancient Assyrians and spoke the language of Acadia, which is presently dead, but the sister language is Arabic and this is the language that was spoken while the attack went on. America came into this through Iraq, which is ancient Assyria.
Harbinger Three: Bricks have fallen.
In ancient Israel, the city walls of protection fell. Their building had collapsed and there were ruin heaps. In the USA, the twin towers fell. There was a scripture found at Ground Zero, which was Matthew 7:27 (great was its fall). What marked the attack of 9/11 was that the bricks have fallen. God does not act without warning. God is calling His people back to Him.
Harbinger Four: The tower (Hebrew word for pride is also tower).
In ancient Israel, they determined to rebuild for themselves a bigger and better tower. Hewn stone means that one can build bigger also meaning we are not going to humble ourselves. In the USA, Governmental leaders say they will defiantly build a tower without God. A second scripture found at Ground Zero: Genesis 11:4, Come let us build for ourselves a tower. Political leaders in the USA said the exact same thing as those in ancient Israel. These political leaders said that we will rebuild a tower that will be defiant. It is never okay to build without God. Isaiah 9:9 speaks of pride and stoutness of heart which comes from the Hebrew word godel and this word also means “tower.” It means pride same as it did Babylon. There was also a scripture hidden in ground zero that a photographer made and it was Isaiah 9:10. This was also found in the same location where the next tower was to go up.
Harbinger Five: Hewn stone—stone of judgment—stone of their defiance.
In ancient Israel, they set up a quarried stone that was a symbol that they planned to rebuild bigger and better. Isaiah 9: 10, the stone is referring to a Gazit stone that is a massive rectangular quarried stone that is neither brick or clay. This is a symbol to say we are coming back bigger. A stone of judgment or a stone of defiance. In the USA, the people of New York had a twenty ton quarried stone brought to Ground Zero where the leaders pronounced words of defiance. It is exactly like the Gazit stone in Isaiah 9. They had a ceremony around the stone just like ancient Israel with political officials saying and speaking defiance over the stone in the same spirit of defiance. The governor of New York literally said “we are doing this in the spirit of defiance.”
Harbinger Six: The sycamore tree has fallen.
In ancient Israel, Assyrians devastated buildings and trees. The Assyrians left the land in devastation. The falling down of trees in the bible is a warning of judgment. In the USA, the sycamore tree was struck down by a beam from the falling second tower. People displayed the tree in a glass case thinking it was a good thing. They were unaware this was a sign of God’s judgment. In the root of the fallen sycamore tree was a fallen brick.
Harbinger Seven: A cedar (erez) tree, indicating strength, was planted in place of the fallen sycamore tree.
In ancient Israel, they planted a stronger tree to replace the sycamore tree. This is another act of defiance. The Hebrew word literally means a cedar, a pine, an evergreen tree. The Hebrew word literally means strength. This is a ritual act that says to God in the same place where the other tree fell we are placing this new tree. In the USA, a helicopter lowered a cedar tree into the hole where the sycamore had been. Two years after 9/11 a tree appears out of the sky and is planted in the same place at the sycamore tree location. This is an ancient Israel ceremony of replacing one tree with another. They call this new tree a sign of hope. They didn’t replace the tree with another sycamore tree but they replaced it with a Pine tree, which is a conifer tree and is also an erez tree. This is the exact same type of tree that Israel used in Isaiah 9.
Harbinger Eight: The Utterance—the official vow made by a national leader on behalf of the nation.
In ancient Israel, Isaiah chronicles the nation’s defiance (Isaiah 9:9-10). This is reflected with Samaria being a capital city. In the USA it is chronicled through Senator John Edwards’ speech three years after 9/11. Senator John Edwards actually uttered Isaiah 9: 10. He just picked a verse of scripture from the bible and had no foreknowledge about the harbingers. He didn’t know what he was doing. Interestingly enough, having no foreknowledge of the Harbingers, his whole speech is built on the context of Isaiah 9: 10. A similar event is recorded during the time of crucifixion of Jesus in John 11: 50-51 with the scripture sharing how Caiaphas was speaking things and he didn’t necessarily know what he was saying but it was in complete accordance with the scripture. He shared that it was necessary for one man to die so that the whole nation not perish. It had to be spoken through him because he held the office of High Priest. When He said this as High Priest it made it official. Senator Edwards meant it one way but God is meaning it another way.
Harbinger Nine: The Prophecy.
In ancient Israel, the Prophet Isaiah spoke a prophecy of God for judgment in Isaiah 9. In the USA, Tom Daschle’s speech on 9/12 begins with “this is what we will do,” and President Obama’s speech announced, “We will rebuild and come back stronger,” and he read Isaiah 9:10.
The day after 9/11 the leaders gathered on capital hill and the person with the authority to do this is the leader of the senate. The Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle’s speech says at the crescendo of his speech ‘that there is a passage in Isaiah that speaks to all of us at times like this. The bricks have fallen and we will rebuild with dress stones.’
He begins to name the Harbingers. He speaks about the tree which they discover the sycamore on that day. He talks about the stone that is going to be put up which happens three years later. He speaks of replacing the one tree with the other tree. He is speaking prophetically and it is recorded in the annals of congress. He refers to Isaiah 9: 10 and says ‘this is what we will do.’ This is what led America to further defiance and shakings.
When God gives a prophecy many times He gives the prophetic address of who it is for. For example in Tom Daschle speech he says there is a passage that speaks to us. Another example is Senator John Edwards says ‘that at this time we (America) have this Word from God to bring us through…’ They identify this message is for us and it is from God. The first major speech that Obama gave to congress as president. President Obama says ‘we will rebuild and we will come back stronger than before.’ President Obama’s word literally replaced word for word the leader of ancient Israel in Isaiah 9.
God says in II Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” It is necessary to call America to pray and humble herself and it is necessary for believers to pray for leaders to take offices that humble themselves before God. What is critical for the upcoming judgments to be averted upon this great country is for a person who holds a national political office to publicly repent before God on behalf of this great nation.
