SUMMARY --

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 end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction – These same nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications for America’s future and end-time prophecy.

Hidden in an ancient biblical prophecy from Isaiah, the mysteries revealed in The Harbinger are so precise that they foretell recent American events down to the exact days… the 3,000-year-old mystery that revealed the exact date of the stock market collapse of 2008… the ancient prophecy that was proclaimed from the floor of the US Senate and then came true…and more. The revelations are so specific that even the most hardened skeptic will find it hard to put down. Though it sounds like the plot of a Hollywood thriller – IT’S REAL.

The prophetic mysteries are factual but revealed through a riveting narrative the reader will find hard to put down. 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.


 The Review.

I borrowed this book from a friend after a long philosophical discussion. I had told him I loved to think and question everything, which then lead him to question my religion, which I had told consisted a mixture of all different religions because I believe they all teach love, kindness, and respect.

Before anyone starts a debate or starts smashing beliefs, let's get on to the review, shall we?

I have to say I'm really pleased after having read the book because it definitely made me think of the possibilities, you know? However, it did raise questions I spoke to my friend about. For example, it says America is turning away from God, but what about those who are still turned toward Him? Do they count in some way? These are just questions, they don't need to be answered unless by the author himself.

My favorite quote within the pages happened to be the following;
Because it's not about religion; it's about love. That's the meaning of the sign, the overcoming of the infinite judgement by infinite love. The love of God.
Now, I'm not hardcore religious or by-the-books religious, but this was definitely a great read, and, as I said previously, it definitely makes you think about the possibilities. I actually had to dig up my dusty bible to see if the quotes were actually in there. Yes, the book is fiction, but it raises some amazing points and proof to back things up. I can't say I fully believe everything within the contents, but it's something to think about, y'know?

Would I recommend it? Depending on the person, I would. This book definitely isn't for everyone, that's for sure. Am I going to read the next book by Mr. Cahn? Actually, yes. After discussing everything I could about this book with my friend, he handed over the next book. Though, I won't be able to get around to it for quite some time, and I want to make sure I have the dedication to absorbing everything this next book has in store within its pages.
