Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery in which is the hidden secret of America's future? Is it possible that this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11, to the war in Iraq, to the American housing bubble and its bursting, to the crash of Wall Street and the global economy, to the Great Recession, and much more—even the president of the United States?
It might sound like the plot of a science fiction or Indiana Jones movie—but it’s real. One more question: Is it possible that God is now sending a prophetic word to America, a word of warning that the nation lies in danger, and unless it returns to Him is heading for impending judgment?
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. My friend Sid Roth asked if I could give you, his Mishpochah (family), some exclusive insight into the mystery of
The Nine Harbingers of Judgment
Before God judges a nation, He sends warning. 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 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 has 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. Four harbingers have manifested at Ground Zero, two harbingers in Washington, D.C., and several involving the highest of American leaders—each harbinger containing a prophetic message and warning. There isn’t space here to even begin to cover all the mysteries—but I’ll touch on one of the Nine Harbingers and three of the mysteries.
The Word that Pronounced Judgment on America
As the dust settled on ancient Israel after the first attack and calamity, the nation’s leaders uttered a specific series of words. The words formed a vow of defiance (see Isaiah 9:10). It would seal their fate. It would declare that they would not repent before God, but would defy Him instead. It was the Ninth Harbinger. It would seal their fate as a nation and lead to their destruction.
On the very morning after Sept. 11, 2001, the Ninth Harbinger now manifested in America. It happened in Washington. On that day, from Capitol Hill, out of the mouth of the Senate Majority Leader, proceeded the exact same words uttered by the leaders of ancient Israel 2,500 years before, in the last days of that nation’s judgment (Isaiah 9:10).
Having no idea what he was doing, the majority leader was declaring America as under the judgment of God. It was the reenactment of an ancient mystery—and bore the most grave of consequences.
