The Harbinger, fact or fiction

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.James 1:5 

This week-end, I have had to think about organising my time so that I can do a bit of blogging..and it seems to work.  I have been back at work for the last two weeks and I haven't had much free time. This afternoon, Steven and I went biking to Shrugborough then going through Colwich and coming back on the A51. It's been a beautiful day, warm and sunny, so we thought that we'd make the most of it.
Tonight, I was watching an interview of the author Jonathan Cahn talking about his book The Harbinger. Have you heard about it or have you read it? 
This is its promotional ad: Is it possible...
• That there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future?
• That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy?
• That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America?
• That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come?
"Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning. The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America.... 'Hidden in an ancient biblical prophecy from Isaiah, the mysteries revealed in The Harbinger are so precise that they foretold recent American events down to the exact days. ... IT’S REAL." In the days and weeks after 9/11, one could hear or see the words “God bless America” almost everywhere. And yet in the years since 9/11, the words “God” and “Under God” have increasingly been under attack or, worse, hidden away from American culture. It was not long after 9/11 that a case arose challenging the words “under God,” in the pledges of Allegiance. A federal judge in California ruled that the words “under God” in such a pledge were unconstitutional.
In more recent days, other controversies rose around the same issue. The president was addressing a Congressional Caucus and quoted from the Declaration of Independence. He stated
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that all men are created equal,
endowed with certain inalienable rights: life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
It sounded right – except for one thing – something had been taken out. Here is the actual text of the Declaration of Independence with the missing words restored in bold:
“….that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights: life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
I cannot comment on the book myself as I have not read it, as a fiction book, it seems interesting. However as Johnathan Cahn talks about facts and new prophecies, you may want to read those two websites that examine the book in the light of the Bible The Harbinger: fact or fiction and what's wrong with the Harbinger's ancient mystery
I will endeavour to post more often..Have a blessed week-end. In the name of Jesus.
