I just completed listening to the Harbinger on audiobook.
Some have criticized Cahn’s book, but their criticism makes it clear they have not thoroughly read the book or listened to the author’s explanation of it. I have yet to find a solid criticism, and instead have only seen circumstantial and knee jerk attacks by those who are trying to hock their wares.
I strive to be someone who is very picky about what I read and quick to point out the rampant apostasy, false prophets, and misinformation that clouds the truth. I did not get the least impression that this book was trying convince anyone of replacement theology.
Cahn, himself a Jew and Messianic Rabbi, has stressed several times both in the book and in interviews that he does not believe in replacement theology (that America, the church, or anything else has replaced Israel) or that the Isaiah 9:10 is a prophecy written just for America or anything of the sort.
What he is uncovering is that there was a pattern in Israel’s judgement that seems to be repeating itself in actual recorded events surrounding 9/11 (and yes, they are all verifiable in news stories, pictures, and video of actual events).
While I agree that the fictional backdrop might cause confusion for some, the point was to arouse people to investigate further for themselves, repent, and turn to God — not make a “thus says the Lord” declaration.
(NOTE: I don’t receive anything for my comments on this book)
