Publisher's 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.

This will make you think

This book offers real possibilities but in a fiction style format. If you are a believer of end times and/or feel we may just be in them or close, then this is a must listen. I am a Christian and end times prophecy has interested me since the Left Behind series was released and I found this book, which combines a fiction story with biblical research, and current events a great addition to my library.

A fascinating prediction....right out of the bible

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.

Chilling

Would you consider the audio edition of The Harbinger to be better than the print version?

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.

Any additional comments?

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.

Makes you think...

Any additional comments?

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.<br/>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.<br/>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!<br/><br/>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.

Great Story, Average Narration

What made the experience of listening to The Harbinger the most enjoyable?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Harbinger?

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.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

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.

God's Providence or Fantasy: Believe It or Not!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Harbinger to be better than the print version?

Yes, I would rather listen than try to read, however I end up buying the book so I can review parts and make notes.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

Hearing the voice.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cahn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

Although Isaiah 9:10 may or may not apply to the United States it presents some facts that are startling and thought provoking.

Challenge your Choices in Life

Any additional comments?

This book made me think hard about not only the state of my life choices but those of my County, State, Nation, and even the world in which we all live. It had me feeling our life choices matter, even down to the choices of everyone: in every home, in every neighborhood. If we don't rethink, then choose to actively readjust our way of life, we are all going to experience the very negative consequences of our own behavior. It made me remember that to NOT make a choice IS to make a choice. If you dare to push the envelope of your comfort zone, dare to really be challenged to THINK and to FEEL, listen to the message within this book. You may never be the same again. Hopefully for the rest of your life.

Just a Fabulous Book!!!

Although I don't buy the "official" story of 9/11 this book connects the dots in an amazing fashion. As a Pastor I've always believed that the OT is a reflection of what is going on in America today. This book perfectly follows my line of thought.
Jonathan Cahn does an incredible job of narrating his book and keeping the listener/reader's attention the entire time. This is one of my favorite books! Easily worth 2 credits! I highly recommend it to Christians and Non-Christians that are looking for some explanation of what is going on in America.

This book itself is a "calamity"

What disappointed you about The Harbinger?

The fact that it is a story about someone telling a story, which violates the first rule of story telling of show, not tell. If I was listening to a sermon or someone teaching about prophetic parallels with Israel and America it would have been ok, but instead this is trying to pass off as fiction and as such is not compelling. <br/><br/>I wasn't sure if he was trying for sorkin-eske dialogue with his repetition or if he just felt the need to repeat almost every idea. If he didn't repeat so much, the time I spent on this book could have been cut in half.

What could Jonathan Cahn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Found another word to use instead of calamity. Just told the story as it was happening, instead of telling the story of someone telling a story. Not repeat EVERYTHING.

What three words best describe Jonathan Cahn’s voice?

Soothing. Interesting. The best part of the experience.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger. I found myself yelling in the car... I GET IT ALREADY, MOVE ON!

Not what I expected - much better by far

I have just listened to The Harbinger from start to finish. I have not had the time to read many books over the past few years and decided that I could perhaps work through a book if it were read through my loud speaker system. I intended to press play between calls, emails and the like but as soon as I started The Harbinger I dropped all and sat back enthralled. I had no idea that a single book could have me riveted to my chair with complete abandonment of the rest of affairs - that was the power of it. This book has so impacted on my daily life-style as to have changed my life forever - it's that good and a must read or listen whatever floats your boat. By the way the twist at the end will sure rock your boat if not sink it!

The past, present & future revealed

This is an incredible revelation of biblical prophecy presented excellently without being weighed down by classic Bible narrative. Jonathan Cahn relates this ancient warning to a nation chosen by God against disobedience to present conditions not only in America but the rest of our global existence in a very realistic and surreal manner. A compelling read to everyone who has questions about where mankind is presently at and how it could pan out in the future.

Unusual book. Superb performance.

This is a gripping tale, though the weaving of fact into the narrative is so extensive that at times it feels a little like proper-gander , however I am glad to have heard this tale, and it does make me more mindful of some of the events of the 21st century.

Amway or Hoover salesman.

At the end of the first chapter I felt the writing style came from that of a serious salesman; Amway or what are hoovers you can only buy from door to door sales persons. To be true I knew then I'd never finish this book. The script was unbelievable , made up. Somewhat like a Lassie movie where the kid talking to the dog seems to explain long orations from just a couple of barks. I don't like fiction; not my thing. I began checking things out and began to see holes and thought," I'm being lied to. 3 hrs in I returned the book. Thank goodness for the returns policy. Moving on....

Perfection cover to cover

Audio book, From I started until I finished and now all my spare time I listen to this. To say it is brilliant does not do this book justice.
Every person on earth should have access to this book, this is what should be read in schools, community centres and Hospitals etc.

Thank you so much.

A mysterious and gripping account

This was a very compelling read. I'd highly recommend especially due to the references to real world events which throw you right into the middle of the story.

The performance was well executed, the narrator has a good speaking voice which is to be expected because it's the author who is also a public speaker!

A great book I'd encourage everyone to read.

A must read for spirit filled believers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The Harbinger shows us where we have been and where we are going - some amazing end time curses that have been set in motion by Presidents past and present

What did you like best about this story?

How end time prophecies are being revealed

What does Jonathan Cahn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Listening is so much easier for me - Johnathon gives light and shade to the narrative

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was astonished by much of what I heard

Great story.
Rabbi Jonathan's narration of the story brings the Scriptures into the forefront of our lives.
He expound it in a way that the reality of God's Word becomes compelling and challenges me to dig deeper into it.
Well done and quite excellent.

Good story but very repetitive😴😴😴

I feel like every sentence is repeated unnecessarily, it seems like it's to fill in time. Also the two characters have similar voices which gets tiresome. However Great concept and interesting novel.
