WASHINGTON – Everyone knows what happened to America Sept. 11, 2001.


It was the single worst attack on American soil by a foreign enemy – the  deadliest, the costliest and the most unexpected.

But what happened six days later on Sept. 17 is largely forgotten.

Sept. 17, 2001, marked the beginning of the economic calamity associated with  9/11 with the lowering of interest rates by the Fed resulting in the collapse of  the stock market.

Seven years later, on Sept. 29, 2008, the next big stock  market crash followed – bigger than the previous one – resulting in the Global Financial Crisis that continues to this day.

Both of those previous economic calamities occurred on Elul  29.

The good news is that today is not a Shmitah year on the Hebrew calendar.

On  Elul 29 on Shmitah years, the financial accounts are wiped away, debts are  canceled and the land is to be given a Sabbath rest, according to Deuteronomy  15:1-2 and Leviticus 25:3-6, with Elul 29 being the last day of the civil  calendar year.

The next Shmitah year will end Sept. 13, 2015. And, because of the  unprecedented popularity of the  No. 1 bestselling Christian book in America this year, “The Harbinger,” and the  No. 1 bestselling faith movie in America in 2012, “The Isaiah 9:10  Judgment,” some people are already marking their calendars.

Harbinger Isaiah

Jonathan Cahn, a messianic rabbi and author of “The Harbinger,” and the narrator of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” is the  person who first noticed that America’s two great financial shakings occurred on  successive Hebrew Shmitah years following the 9/11 Islamist terror attacks on  the U.S., the key to the series of limited judgments the author sees as a result  of America’s turning away from God just as ancient Israel did before the  dispersion.

Though Cahn prefers not to speculate on what, if anything, might befall  America on Sept. 13, 2015, the story of this economic shaking on a seven-year  cycle is laid out in “The Harbinger”

“A clear pattern has been established,” says Joseph Farah, producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”I don’t believe it’s a coincidence what  happened in America on Elul 29 in 2001 and 2008. It would be foolish to ignore  the possibility that a greater judgment might be in the works – especially if  America continues to move away from God and His Word.”

It’s also worth noting that Elul 29, 2015, represents the eve of the Feast of  Trumpets or Rosh Hashana at sundown.

An unusual astronomical phenomenon, a blood  red moon – or tetrad – is expected to occur that evening, according to NASA. The  Feast of Trumpets begins a period known by Jews as “the days of awe” that lasts  through Yom Kippur a week later.

Actually according to there will be a partial solar eclipse that day

Hebrew roots pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries in Washington state  noted several years ago that a cluster of tetrads will occur in 2014 and 2015 – all of them on Hebrew high holidays. Joel 2:31 says: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into  blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.” Other biblical  references can be found in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12.

“If you haven’t seen this movie yet, I urge you to get it, screen it with  your family, show it to your friends and arrange church viewings,” said Farah. “This is the most important project I have been involved in through my 35-year  media career. This is a message, I believe, God directed me to be involved with  for a time such as this.”

“A number of years ago, as I was standing at the edge of Ground Zero in New  York City, I came across the first puzzle piece of an ancient biblical mystery  and a prophetic message known as ‘The Harbinger’ that concerns the future of  America,” explains Cahn, who helped write the two-hour documentary “The Isaiah  9:10 Judgment.”

Cahn says he has since found nine harbingers that tie the problems America  has experienced beginning Sept. 11, 2001, to parallels that led to the  destruction of ancient Israel.

See the highlights of the “Isaiah 9:10 Judgment”:


“Before God judges a nation, He sends warning,” explains Cahn. “He sent  warning to ancient Israel. He even allowed its enemies to breach its borders in  a devastating strike that would traumatize the nation. It was a wake-up call,  the call to return to God.

But the nation instead of repentance, responded with defiance. God then gave  nine harbingers of judgment, nine prophetic signs, alarms and foreshadows of  what was to come. Now America is the nation in rapid departure from God’s will.  And God likewise allowed an enemy to breach its borders in a devastating strike – the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It was, likewise, a wake-up call. But  America, like Israel, has not responded with repentance, but with defiance. And  now the nine harbingers of judgment have reappeared and have done so on American  soil.”

The  WND Superstore offers an exclusive bundle that includes “The Harbinger” and “The  Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” at one low price.

Isaiah 9:10 is a verse in which Israel’s national leaders utter a vow of  defiance following an attack by Assyria. It declared that the nation would not  repent before God but would defy Him instead. Cahn reveals in “The Harbinger” – and in even more dramatic fashion in the documentarythat beginning the day after Sept. 11, 2001, American leaders began repeating  that 2,500-year-old vow, word for word.

“Having no idea what he was doing, the majority leader of the U.S. Senate  (Tom Daschle) was declaring America as under the judgment of God,” Cahn says. “It was the reenactment of an ancient mystery – and bore the most grave of  consequences.”

He continues: “According to the ancient mystery revealed in the Book of  Isaiah, if after that first calamity and warning, the nation doesn’t return to  God but responds in defiance, it will end up triggering a second calamity. It  was because of this ancient key, that, seven years after 9/11, the American  economy collapsed.

“In the days after 9/11, the Federal Reserve slashed the base interest rate  in an attempt to defy the consequences of the attacks. That action put us on the  path leading to the collapse of the American economy seven years later. In 2008,  the government made a second fatal mistake, another ill-fated financial  decision, that would trigger the collapse of the American economy. Amazingly, it  took place on the seventh anniversary of the uttering of the ancient vow on  Capitol Hill.”

World Trade Center

Cahn also reveals in “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” something that readers and  viewers universally find astonishing – that New York’s Ground Zero actually  represents more than the former financial center of the country. It represents  the exact place at which America was first consecrated to God in prayer by the  country’s new leaders.

In 1789, newly inaugurated President George Washington gave a prophetic  warning at Federal Hall in New York City. He declared that America’s prosperity  and protection were dependent upon its adherence to God.

Later, the political leaders of the young nation gathered at St. Paul’s  Chapel to commit the nation’s future to God’s purposes. That chapel is located  at Ground Zero and miraculously survived 9/11 virtually unscathed. But the  foundation of Federal Hall was ominously cracked.

All of this is covered in “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” using actual archival footage along with  narration by Cahn.

The key to decoding the harbingers, Cahn says, is found in understanding the  seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10 (King James Version), what it meant to  Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today: “The  bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: The sycamores are  cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”

These words were first uttered by leaders in Israel and in response to a  limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali – an attack the  prophet makes clear is actually part of a limited judgment by God against  apostasy. It wasn’t meant to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to  most commentaries.

But, says Cahn, Israel didn’t take the cue. Instead, the response from the  people in Isaiah 9:10 is one of defiance. The brick buildings were toppled, but  they vowed to build bigger and better. The little sycamore trees may have been  uprooted, but they vowed to plant bigger and better cedars in their place.

God, speaking through Isaiah, explains what will happen as a result of their  pride and arrogance and failure to heed the harbinger: Bigger and more potent  attacks will follow. Because neither the northern kingdom of Israel nor the  southern kingdom of Judah truly repents, the first is eventually swept away by  Assyrian invaders and the latter is carried off into captivity by the  Babylonians for 70 years.

But what does this have to do with the United States of America – particularly what the U.S. experienced on 9/11 and since? Cahn has found some  eerie parallels.

“In the aftermath of the attack, the nation was stunned,” said Cahn. “Everyone was trying to make sense of what had happened – this unprecedented  attack on America. The very next day, Sept. 12, then Senate Majority Leader Tom  Daschle presented America’s response to the world. And what did he say?”

Daschle said: “America will emerge from this tragedy as we have emerged from  all adversity – united and strong. Nothing … nothing can replace the losses of  those who have suffered. I know there is only the smallest measure of  inspiration that can be taken from this devastation. But there is a passage in  the Bible from Isaiah that speaks to all of us at times like this.”

The majority leader then went on to read Isaiah 9:10.

It might be of some significance that Daschle, one of the most powerful men  in the nation when he spoke those words, later fell into disgrace – to the point  where he couldn’t even serve in Barack Obama’s Cabinet.

That might have been the end of the story – if no other top leader in the  nation uttered those strange and obscure words after 9/11. But that’s not the  case.

On the third anniversary of the attack, Sept. 11, 2004, another powerful U.S.  senator running for vice president that year, and who would famously run for the  presidency four years later, gave a speech to the Congressional Black  Caucus.

This time, John Edwards’ entire speech was built on a foundation of Isaiah  9:10.

“Today, on this day of remembrance and mourning, we have the Lord’s Word to  get us through,” he said.

He then read Isaiah 9:10. He went on to talk about how America was doing just  that – rebuilding with hewn stone and planting cedars.

“Like Daschle, Edwards thinks he’s invoking inspirational and comforting  words from the Bible, but he’s actually inviting judgment on America,” says  Cahn. “He’s repeating the vow that provoked God to bring calamity on ancient  Israel.”

Even more astonishing, Daschle and Edwards were not alone among U.S. leaders  in making similar statements. Even Barack Obama’s Inauguration Address  in  Feb 2009 made similarly eerie allusions.
“But while our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken; though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this:  We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.”
In 2012, President visited the construction of the One World Tower and inscribing one of the steel beams that would be part of the building’s framework, Obama wrote: “We remember, we rebuild, we come back stronger!” followed by his signature.

Barack Obama, Michelle obama

Farah says events continue to unfold that seem to link directly to the  message of Isaiah 9:10 right here in the United States.

In “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,”

Cahn gives some remarkable  answers to the following questions:

  • Does a relatively obscure verse of Scripture hold the secret to the pain and  suffering America has been experiencing in increasing doses since 9/11?
  • Does Barack Obama play a role?
  • Are America’s key leaders unknowingly fulfilling a prophetic destiny of  national judgment by uttering words from the Bible they don’t comprehend?
  • Is the United States following in the footsteps of ancient Israel with a  spirit of defiance against God leading to increasingly severe judgments?
  • Is America in danger of impending judgment? And is this judgment revealed in  an ancient mystery that foretells current events down to the exact dates?
  • What can Americans learn that can prevent their nation from falling like  ancient Israel did when it failed to heed God’s warnings?
