‘The Harbinger’ Author Updates His Warning
Jonathan Cahn is a messianic Jewish Rabbi and author of the book The Harbinger in which the USA and the events of 9/11 are compared with Old Testament prophecies about Israel. I posted my thoughts about this book (I didn’t find it convincing) at http://www.bubblews.com/news/596653-my-thoughts-on-the-book-quotthe-harbingerquot-by-jonathan-cahn.
After the 9/11 attack an evergreen tree was planted by St. Paul’s Chapel to replace the sycamore tree that was there. Cahn refers to the evergreen as the erez tree, and believes it is the fulfillment of an Old Testament prophecy (Is 9:10). In his book the tree was the seventh of nine harbingers (warnings or omens) of God’s judgment which is to be poured out on America. It is worth noting that The Harbinger, according to Cahn, is a work of fiction.
According to a recent announcement by Cahn, the tree died and was removed and destroyed. Cahn also claims that the tree will not be replaced because of his book. The only sales count I could find placed sales at just over a million copies as of February 2013 so you can draw your own conclusions about how influential his book is.
Cahn says that the tree’s removal is an indication that America is even closer to experiencing God’s judgment.
