God is trying to wake America up.
That’s the essential message of The Harbinger, the bestselling, fascinating work of fiction by Jonathan Cahn (a Messianic Jewish pastor) that he sees as based in fact—resting on biblical prophecies from the Old Testament book of Isaiah that he believes have already happened and, especially if America continues on its present course, are about to occur.
The nine harbingers (i.e., warnings) that Cahn outlines can be divided into two distinct “shakings,” he says:
The first revolved around the 9/11 attacks and America’s response to them.
The second is a broader shaking that is touching the U.S. even now (i.e., primarily the badly damaged economy).
Cahn principally writes that these harbingers are from God to warn and “wake up” America not to abandon its original allegiance to the Creator. As a “crown” of nations, he says, the U.S. can’t keep that status without God. And without God, blessings will continue to disappear and judgment will soon follow.

Cahn, who spoke this week with Glenn Beck over a two-day series of GBTV interviews, says that he’s hopeful for America “otherwise there wouldn’t be harbingers.”
The harbingers Cahn outlines are:
These same warnings were given to ancient Israel before its collapse, and now they’re appearing on American soil. Can parallels be drawn between recent events and the stories in The Harbinger?

Here’s part 2 of the Cahn-Beck discussion. America’s post-9/11 arrogance (versus the humility it should have sought) is an important consideration, Cahn says:
Check out Glenn introducing The Harbinger to radio listeners last month:
The Harbinger opens with the appearance of a man burdened with a message he has received from a mysterious figure called The Prophet. The Prophet has given him nine seals, each containing a message about America s future. As he tells of his encounters with the Prophet, from a skyscraper in New York City, to a rural mountaintop, to Capitol Hill, to Ground Zero, the mystery behind each seal is revealed. As the story unfolds, each revelation becomes another piece in a larger and larger puzzle, the ramifications of which are, even now, altering the course of America and the world.
