Over the weekend, Glenn read Jonathan Cahn’s bestselling book “The Harbinger: the Ancient Mystery that holds the secret of America’s Future.”
The book shows how all the warnings before Israel’s great fall in 732 BC are repeating themselves today in America.
“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning. The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America—with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy,” reads the book’s description. “Hidden in an ancient Biblical prophecy from Isaiah, the mysteries revealed in The Harbinger are so precise that they foretold recent American events down to the exact days. The revelations are so specific that even the most hardened skeptics will find hard to dismiss. It sounds like the plot of a Hollywood thriller – with one difference… it’s real.”
So many people had been telling Glenn that he had to read this book, he finally decided it was time to see what it was all about.
“I read it over the weekend and I’m doing my homework on it,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “My first impression is it’s absolutely right. But I haven’t, I haven’t done my homework on it.”
“I think it’s – I think it could be misread as, you know, God’s punishing America. No, that’s not what he’s saying,” Glenn continued. “He’s saying that we have made a covenant and we’ve broken it and God’s trying to wake is up.”
Glenn asked Pat and Stu to also read the book this weekend, so they could discuss their thoughts this morning. While both agreed it was a good read, Stu wished Cahn didn’t intertwine the facts from the Bible with a fictional story.
“The delivery system is through a story,” Stu said. “Like it’s a fictional story that tells you things that are true from the Bible… To me the fictional story aspect is distracting to me.”
Glenn still called the book “an incredible story and an incredible nine things.”
“We’re doing our homework on it because I want to talk to the author, and I’d like to do a special on it because I think those nine things are absolutely right,” Glenn said in regards to the nine harbingers Israel received before its destruction.
Ultimately, Glenn believes the book puts forth a conversation about God that we don’t otherwise talk about in this country.
“We don’t have any way in our society to have a rational conversation about God stuff. And that’s why he puts this I think that’s why this author puts it in a story line,” Glenn said. “Because you don’t have any way to have a serious conversation. Because we’ve so relegated that to crazy talk. You have to. You have to have that conversation. Have to find a way to.”
