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.

I am the most amazing version of myself that I have ever met.
The Harbinger was an entertaining listen. I understand that it has been scrutinized, both from Christians and others - mainly for the fact that Cahn supposedly takes the verse in Isaiah out of context. Regardless, the prophetic warnings, or "Harbingers", presented in Isaiah are strangely coincidental to the events of 9/11 as Cahn presents.
Regardless of your belief system, the book does cause the listener to ponder how such random events (e.g. sycamores being replaced by a conifer) seemingly follow both the invasion of Israel by the Assyrians and the attacks on the United States by the Assyrian's indirect decendents (the Taliban) to be strangely similar.
I was semi annoyed by the story Cahn uses to tell the story. I think there could have been more effective ways to present his points, but alas, I am not a NYT best selling author!
All in all, a good listen. If you're interested in Biblical history and would like to learn some interesting tidbits of how it may tie into America's future, then you'll love this book.
I am a college student that enjoys leisurely listening between studying. I most enjoy books involving mystery, conspiracy, and adventure.
The story within this book, although at some times repetitive, kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. As a college student, I have a large amount of mandatory reading. This book was a great way to spend a saturday afternoon and listen to something I actually chose myself. It's an easy listen with an excellent story and a great lesson.
Every chapter holds its own memorable moments. Every time new information was presented from history, my heart skipped a beat. I have never spent so much time pausing a book to research the topic to make sure the information was accurate. That's how "jaw-dropping" this book is.
This book is narrated by the author. This is an understandable arrangement but I would rather have had a more skilled reader to listen to. He could have done a much better job of distinguishing between the voices. There are several times where I had to think about who was talking so that I could understand what was going on.
Absolutely. I knocked off this book in an afternoon while cleaning my dorm. It's amazing how glued I was tot he story that I could practically do anything but listen to music and still be able to follow along.
Such a good story I've recommended it to family members for their weekly reading group.
In reading you can skip some of the back and forth between the publisher and the hero. It is understandable that the hero is speaking to a critical cynical person so, goes the dialogue. It is something you wish you could fast forward through when you want to hear what happens next.
This book should be listened to or read by all that love America. One thing about listening in front of your computer, tablet or on your smart phone, you can look things up that are true accounts and unexplainable events that mirror another time and another warning, like we are doing, went unheeded. This is a read/listen that should be yielded to.
I was skeptical when I bought this book, but the author has me convinced that he's parlayed the prophet Isaiah into the modern era. But, this one was a revelation of the first magnitude.
This book is a must read for every Christian and every citizen who loves this nation. The historical facts related in the book are TRUE. This is an excerpt from an internet search I did regarding George Washington and St. Paul's Chapel:
"George Washington prayed at St. Paul's Chapel after his inauguration as the first president of the United States in 1789. He continued to worship at St. Paul's until the capital of the United States moved from New York to Philadelphia in 1790."
St. Paul's Chapel's locale - across the street from ground zero! It was the only structure in the proximity left standing after the collapse of the twin towers!!
Be prepared to have a personal encounter with God, speaking through his prophet.
The story. The author walked through a narrated story of a series of life changing encounters that brought the information to life.
None. I have never read or heard a story as utterly frightening as this, that was both fiction and fact at the same time. This is a one of a kind book from my experience. There are elements of a mystery novel where you follow clues and riddles to find the truth at the end of the search. There were mystical elements of predestination and divine coincidence that leave you in amazement and wonder. Lastly, there are the underlying facts that are easily verifiable, but verification of the facts only brings more questions. Again, one of a kind.
The prophet. A man called by God to be separate and do His will. The mystery of this character along with the message he brings leaves the reader wanting more.
The Impending Judgement
I spent an entire day listening to this book. Once I started, I could not stop. I cleared my schedule, sat in front of google to verify the facts as they were presented, and was chapter by chapter hit with fact after nightmarish fact. Each one verified and more terrifying than its' predecessor. I would say unequivocally that this should be required reading for any patriotic American!
Yes, I would rather listen than try to read, however I end up buying the book so I can review parts and make notes.
Hearing the voice.
Although Isaiah 9:10 may or may not apply to the United States it presents some facts that are startling and thought provoking.
This book has been a best seller and I have been interested. The format of the book suits very well as an audio book. I wonder if it would be little better with more separation of the voices. In the beginning of the book I felt that the main character did not feel like a journalist, he was quite naive but I think the book got better later.
This book is not so much a prophetic book as it mainly gives an explonation why things has happened. Perhaps many people do not know the Bible so this can be a challange for your mind. There was new information for me and new point of view. So it is an interesting book and I recommend it.
Thought provoking, challenges the status quo
Sometimes, the repetition in the dialogue can be a bit mundane.
