Posted on 02/15/2013 11:49:55 PM PST by Yosemitest
This is an excerpt to wet your desire for an interesting book.
They had no idea what was coming.
They thought it would all go on as it always had, as if it would never change.
They had no idea what was about to happen or what it was all leading to.
Everything they had ever known, up to that point, their entire world, would vanish.
An ancient people an ancient kingdom.
Israel, the northern kingdom, eighth century B.C.
They should have known.
It was all there from the beginning, but they forgot.
Their purpose, their foundation, that which made them unique.
No other nation had been called into being for the will of God or dedicated to His purposes from conception.
No other people had been given a covenant.
But the covenant had a condition.
If they followed the ways of God, they would become the most blessed of nations.
But if they fell away and turned against His ways, then their blessings would be removed and replaced by calamity, as they did, and as it was.
But why would they turn away if they were given so much?
Its a mystery, said the prophet, a kind of spiritual amnesia.
When it began, they were still using Gods name, but with less and less meaning behind it.
Then they started merging Him, confusing Him with the gods of the nations.
And then they began turning against Himsubtly at first, then outright, then brazenlydriving Him out of their national life and bringing in idols to fill the void.
The land became covered with idols and altars to foreign gods.
They rejected their covenant, abandoned their standards, and exchanged the values they had always lived by for those they had never known
A key for the appointed time, for the word to be given and for the message to go forth, but not for an ancient nation.
Then for what for what nation?
He was silent.
I asked him again, Then for what nation?
It was only then that he voiced it.
America, he said. Now for America.
With that, he got up from the bench and walked over toward the water.
I couldnt let it go at that. I followed him there.
All this has to do with America?
So its the appointed time for America?
For a mystery to be revealed and a message to be given to America?
But what does America have to do with ancient Israel?
Israel was unique among nations in that it was conceived and dedicated at its foundation for the purposes of God.
But there was one othera civilization also conceived and dedicated to the will of God from its conception America.
In fact, those who laid its foundations
The Founding Fathers.
No, long before the Founding Fathers.
Those who laid Americas foundations saw it as a new Israel, an Israel of the New World.
And as with ancient Israel, they saw it as in covenant with God.
Meaning its rise or fall would be dependent on its relationship with God.
If it followed His ways, America would become the most blessed, prosperous, and powerful nation on earth.
From the very beginning they foretold it.
And what they foretold would come true.
America would rise to heights no other nation had ever known.
Not that it was ever without fault or sin, but it would aspire to fulfill its calling.
To be a vessel of redemption, an instrument of Gods purposes, a light to the world.
It would give refuge to the worlds poor and needy, and hope to its oppressed.
It would stand against tyranny.
It would fight, more than once, against the dark movements of the modern world that threatened to engulf the earth.
It would liberate millions.
And, as much as it fulfilled its calling or aspired to, it would become the most blessed, the most prosperous, the most powerful, and the most revered nation on the earthjust as its founders had prophesied.
But theres a but coming, isnt there?
Yes, he replied.
There was always another side to the covenant.
If ancient Israel fell away from God and turned against His ways, its blessings would be removed and replaced with curses.
But wasnt Israel surrounded by nations far worse, I asked, with no concept of God or moral code?
So why would Israel be judged?
Because to whom much is given, much is required.
And no nation had ever been given so much.
None had been so spiritually blessed.
So the standards were higher, the stakes greater, and the judgment, when it came, more severe.
And America I said.
And America has done much good.
And theres no shortage of nations far exceeding any of its faults or sins.
But no nation in the modern world has ever been given so much.
None has been so blessed.
To whom much is given, much is required.
If a nation so blessed by God should turn away from Him, what then?
Its blessings will be replaced with curses?
And has America turned away from God? I asked.
It has turned, and is turning.
In the same way Israel turned.
It started with a spiritual complacency, then spiritual confusion, then the merging of God with idols, and then, ultimately, the rejection of His ways.
Just as with ancient Israel, America began ruling God out of its life, turning, step by step, against His ways, at first subtly, and then, more and more, brazenly.
When? I asked. When did it start?
Theres no one simple answer.
In Americas greatest moments there was always sin, and in its worst moments, greatness.
But there are critical junctures.
In the middle of the twentieth century America began officially removing God from its national life.
It abolished prayer and Scripture in its public schools.
As ancient Israel had removed the Ten Commandments from its national consciousness,
He didnt respond.
Is America in danger of judgment? I asked.
Again he was silent.
Tell me is America in danger of judgment?
Are you sure you want to know the answer?
The answer to your question is yes Yes.
America is in danger of judgment.
I didnt respond immediately.
I was trying to come up with a defense.
Finally I said, It cant be as bad as it was in ancient Israel.
They came against the prophets.
But if God sent a message today to America, calling it back, people would listen.
How do you know?
Because theyve deafened their ears to those voices.
So as with ancient Israel, the alarm would have to grow louder and the calling more severe.
Which means what?
Which means that America would enter a new stage.
Of what happened to Israel, he answered.
The removal of the nations hedge of protection.
And what would it mean if something like that would happen?
There was a long pause before he answered that.
It already has.
What do you mean?
Americas hedge has already been removed, and the Nine Harbingers have been manifested.
The Nine Harbingers?
The Nine Harbingers that manifested in ancient Israel in the nations last days.
Each one was a sign.
Each one was a warning of judgment of their end the Nine Harbingers of judgment.
I dont understand.
Its all happening again according to the same pattern, according to the judgment of ancient Israel.
The Nine Harbingers that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel are now appearing in America.
Appearing in America?
Each one manifesting on American soil. Each one containing a prophetic message.
And upon these, the future of the nation hangs.
I dont understand
You dont have to understand. It will all be revealed.
He asked me if I had the seal.
I did. I removed it from my pocket and handed it to him.
He then opened up his other hand to reveal another seal, the same one he was holding the day we met.
He placed it in my hand.
Nine seals, one for each Harbinger, one for each mystery.
And this one? I asked.
This is the seal of the First Harbinger.
And the one I gave you?
That was your seal.
But as for the seals of the Harbingers, there are eight more.
Youll keep each seal until we meet again, at which time youll return it to me to receive the next seal and the next revelation.
Youll only have one seal at a time, the security deposit of a coming mystery.
And you trust me to give it back to you? I asked.
But how do you know youll ever see me again?
Youre the one seeking, and you wont stop until you find.
In any case, I have my own security deposit, dont I?
He paused and then slightly nodding his head said, Until then, Nouriel.
And he began to walk away. And my seal? I shouted after him.
Youll get it back when were finished, he replied without stopping or turning his head
And when will we meet again? I asked.
When its time to speak of the First Harbinger.
At the appointed place, he replied.
How will I know?
How did you know to come here in the first place? he asked.
So you wont know again, and yet youll be there.
And then he was gone.
Not that it was ever without fault or sin, but it would aspire to fulfill its calling.bbrbr
That sounds like the beginning of a story, not a chapter 3.
America, One Nation Under GOD

I AM AN AMERICAN. That is the beginning and the end of it. Not a hyphenated American. Born here. Reared here. And I do love my country so very much that nothing, and I MEAN NOTHING, rises above it except for GOD Almighty, and an unwavering belief that this same GOD has given us all the weapons we need to stop this abomination. We have the brains. What has happened to our guts?
This isn’t about some damn government. Government, by its very nature, exists for its own perpetuity and becomes, to a man and woman, mad. One need only glance over at what Great Britain’s hysterical plunge into this insanity has wrought.
Doesn’t anyone see the poison in their latest “law” to charge Brits with a felony for showing the soles of their shoes in public? Doesn’t ANYONE realize that the whole thing is *sharia by any other name? It is a terrible insult to *islam to show them the soles of your shoes, you stupid *brits. Without *sharia as the impetus, it makes no sense whatever to legislate against it.
You cannot seek sanity from the insane. There is no safety in our having elected “officials” because we had little, if any, choice of who was in the running. Little by little, they made sure we had no voice, and the few faint voices left were silenced by nefarious means. Those elected then APPOINTED thereby eradicating the need for further elections.
The young generation of true American Patriots has been sent out away from us to fight a war that will give rise to yet another *islamic state.* They have been told, and they believe, that they are defenders of OUR freedom.
In reality, while they are cannon fodder for rival anti-life freaks of nature, their country, which they love so much, and all that it stands for, is being sold right out from under them to the highest bidder and *sharia states within states have already been built in our midst.
The price they, we, and the rest of the world, pay is far too high and we need them to take up OUR arms and defend THIS country from the elitest monied, appointed, and “official” tyranny which has infested us with the plague of globalism from the innermost chambers of a lunatic political class, to paid propagandists hiding behind storefronts in our neighborhoods, in our arts, schools, and communities.
Make no mistake. We see one face and call it Communism. We see the other and we call it Capitalism. We see another and call it Wahabism. Yet another, and we call it Socialism. Still others, and we call them Environmentalism, Extremism, Fascism, Racism.
In reality, all of these faces have one real face and it is ONE effort by the world’s most powermad and evil plunderers to steal not just what WE have built, but everything else that exists in the world built by others, to serve their own purposes which they do not even know, except they BELIEVE it MUST be theirs.
The overseers of this empire will be those who have the most experience at slavery and brutality. They BELIEVE they will control our genius though they did not, and could not ever begin, to create it again. It is nothing but an entry in the runoff competition because they will forever war amongst themselves for final control.
As I stated earlier. Do not expect sanity from this kind of madness. What they most desire is a world without freedom. Period. And they are well on their way, at long last, to achieving it.
It was this very fact that our Biblical Forefathers understood. IF there MUST be one world power, it MUST be ONE GOD Itself. No man, or group of men, should ever, EVER be granted such power. So we went into freedom AWAY from a government that claimed to be godlike. Our Founding Fathers fully grasped this concept.
No government gives man his power, but they do aim to control the men whose power they wrongfully claim for themselves.
If being a Hebrew has taught me nothing else, it has taught me that when we allow others to decide our ultimate fate without conscience or wisdom, it will always be to steal our souls and enslave us, and NONE of them care about ME. None care about freedom. Individual thought will be punished.
I care about my freedom. Me only. I will fight the entire world for it. ONE GOD IS FREEDOM from the tyranny of men.
We Hebrews are the ultimate lesson to all of mankind that even though OUR ancestors KNEW how irrevokably foolish it was to follow even the most wrongheaded and illogical paths of those they chose, follow they did. By these mistakes we are known.
WE ARE THE TEACHERS OF THE LESSON CARRIED FORWARD THROUGHOUT GENERATIONS. We did not play by the wisdom of our own rules. We did NOT choose freedom when it was there within our grasp. We had so little faith or trust in our own independent intelligence and decency, that we allowed others to measure it for us and were found wanting. We became the measurement by which all of humanity judges its own self.
Even then, KNOWING the truth, we allowed those with NO understanding to walk among us and we empowered them in the mistaken belief that if only we waited for those without understanding to learn, everyone would be risen up in time. We divided amongst ourselves, against ourselves, and what should have been the ultimate uplifting of humanity was diluted by what we accepted from without.
Instead, OUR numbers dwindled away. OUR original understanding was lost. Those without understanding hated the few who held on to it. It did not have the strength to stand and was dashed into what we are seeing now...the exponential expansion of insanity into every fabric of every culture known to man.
The enemy of my enemy is never my friend. It is my enemy’s enemy, and once my enemy is gone, my enemy’s enemy will turn on me.
America! Beware what YOU have become. The founders of this country wrote with great eloquence and vast wisdom. I marvel that such a handful of truly wise men would appear on earth at the same time and in the same place to bring forth the full GOD DOCTRINE to you.
YOU became the CHOSEN PEOPLE because key in ALL of this...is FREEDOM.
And they warned you, even as our ancient Commandments warned us, that freedom is indeed HOLY and must REMAIN holy against any and all odds. These men had no desire to rule over you. Just as Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew, Moses also knew that he was not supposed to RULE over the Hebrews.
Mind, knowledge, respect, honor, and wisdom was to be the way forward without fear of theft or deception by other men. Freedom is not to be bartered, bargained with, sold, or given away, and most assuredly, it is not to be stolen without a vigorous defense because once lost, who is left to know what was lost?
Will YOU end up a postage stamp on some barren wilderness flying a flag, saluting a symbol, your fathers died for without understanding it? Do you not yet understand that The Old Testament is just as much your history and just as much your prophecy as ever it was ours?
Isn’t the downfall of Solomen and the saga of liasons between questionable allies close enough in proximity for you to see that ignoring the most basic moral and ethical tenets of your land in the quest for political expediency, though enriching you in the short term, brings the darkness, hastens your demise, and ends the age?
And isn’t the true lesson here that no matter how long you survive, no matter how smart you think you are, acceptance of small evils, small losses of freedom “for the greater good,” does no body no good not ever?
America is as unique among nations as Hebrews were unique among peoples. Can’t you see the irony? Don’t you understand the hatred from the world that wants to BE you, but can’t?
Don’t you understand the jealousy that disquiets the mob so that if it can’t BE you, it will mindlessly destroy all that you have ever built and believed in? It will attempt to smash you into scattered fragments of history so that if you are remembered at all, all the nations arising after you will wonder who you really were and it will never be right.
There will be lies about your origins. There will be monuments to your downfall if you allow your age to fall to predatory conquerors unless you use every weapon at your disposal to eradicate this pandemic of insanity.
If ever there was a time to rise up, it is now. If ever freedom was important enough to fight FOR, it is now. Do not follow corrupt “leaders.” They have betrayed us all.
The entire world is at risk. It is not simply one group of people, but look around you. America is truly the full blown sculpture of Noah’s Ark come to life. On this ark are some of every living thing. Peoples, plants, animals, topography, and knowledge from, or similar to, every country and island nation on earth. America has the very shape of an ark with deck, stem, and stern.
It is ours to lose, and we are losing it. Just as Israel was lost and Hebrews have been hunted and hated ever since anywhere they have ever been, so AMERICANS have been singled out for the same fate...and by the VERY SAME people who came for us Hebrews millenia ago. Same play, much bigger stage.
If you do not act now, how many millenia will pass before SOMEBODY is screaming to their people with all the strength they possess NOT to let this happen again?
Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it...perhaps on yet a bigger stage with ever so much more to lose.
If the author was serious about the message, he would post the book in its entirety online and ask for donations to support his calling.
Kind of like how Jim runs Free Republic...
Its too late/early for me to digest all this.
The thing is this book was written in 2011. My article was written in 2009.
Is the United States of America in Bible Prophecy? Is the United States in Bible Prohecy?
Gen 41:32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

And from post 77:
America is what it is, and at this late stage most have decided - base on understanding as deep as Belshazzar's - that there's nothing to see.
GOD as a doctrine needs to be understood, even by atheists. It is the thing outside of ourselves, outside of government, that forbids enslavement of the mind, body, and soul by tyranny.
The Founders knew this. Within certain moral parameters, FREEDOM belongs to the individual and it can only be so if we adhere to the notion that FREEDOM was granted to us by a power that exists outside of the realm of man. Therefore, it can not be tampered with by men.
This is the moral imperative that government and the hard left in this country is trying to destroy. If they succeed, we are doomed.

GOD gave us a plan. In the Bible, it is known as Exodus. The Commandments were handed down there, and FREEDOM was ours for the choosing. We chose wrongly. We chose earthly kings instead of freedom. We have been paying the price for that ever since.
GOD will not redeem us FOR us. We MUST redeem ourselves first.

There is no mystery to it. Within Isaiah is the ONE prophecy which up until today had never been fulfilled. We are seeing it being fulfilled NOW.
He also made his sons and daughters "pass through the fire", that is, making them into human sacrifices.
This is where we are lurching as a nation and will shortly encounter if we do not repent as a nation, turning away from Evil and returning to the Lord our God.
Sending Pregnant Women into Combat.
Marrying Gays in the Military.
Making us pay for Abortions, Sterilizations and Abortifacients (blood of the innocents upon us).
All these point to the fact that the time for Repentance is short or our nation will be no more. Most likely carried back to slavery in 'Egypt' by our massive Chinese debt.
Over and over.
>>>America is what it is, and at this late stage most have decided - base on understanding as deep as Belshazzar's - that there's nothing to see. <<<
Meanwhile, over at Ezekiel 37...
Or how about literal upon literal...

15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

Actually, the author, Rabbi Cahn has given hour long lectures on his book and its meaning for America. All you have to do is look up the word Harbinger on YouTube and take your pick. All of his interviews, sermons and lectures are free.
