The Worldnutdaily is selling yet another crazy book — and publishing a fake “article” intended solely to sell the product. This time it’s about the alleged parallels between ancient Israel and modern America. And the “reasoning” is quite amusing.
A messianic rabbi from New Jersey is stunning audiences nationwide by revealing the striking parallels between the fall of ancient Israel and what he suggests are God’s early judgments of America.
Jonathan Cahn of the Jerusalem Center-Beth Israel Congregation in Wayne, N.J., says an otherwise obscure passage in the Book of Isaiah is since Sept. 11, 2001, being uncannily re-enacted in the U.S. just the way it originally played out in the time of the great prophet of Israel leading to the nation’s captivity and dispersions.
Ooh. We’re “uncannily reenacting” what the Bible says happened to Israel. Just wait till you see how closely we’re doing so:
“Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy.”
The key to decoding the harbingers, he says, is found in understanding the seemingly innocuous words of Isaiah 9:10 (King James Version), what it meant to Israel and how the history seems to be repeating itself in America today.
“The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
These words were first uttered by leaders in Israel and in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali – an attack the prophet makes clear is actually part of a limited judgment by God against apostasy. It wasn’t meant to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries.
But, says Cahn, Israel didn’t take the cue. Instead, the response from the people in Isaiah 9:10 is one of defiance. The brick buildings were toppled, but they vowed to build bigger and better. The little sycamore trees may have been uprooted, but they vowed to plant bigger and better cedars in their place…
“In the aftermath of the attack, the nation was stunned,” said Cahn, “Everyone was trying to make sense of what had happened – this unprecedented attack on America. The very next day, September 12, then Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle presented America’s response to the world. And what did he say?”
Daschle said: “America will emerge from this tragedy as we have emerged from all adversity – united and strong. Nothing … nothing can replace the losses of those who have suffered. I know there is only the smallest measure of inspiration that can be taken from this devastation. But there is a passage in the Bible from Isaiah that speaks to all of us at times like this.”
Wow! The ancient Israelites showed determination in the face of tragedy and so are we. What an incredible parallel! I’m sure you skeptics and scoffers will point out that it’s a parallel with pretty much every country that has ever experienced a disaster of any kind. That would be just like you heathen unbelievers, doubting the word of God! And Joseph Farah gives you what you’ve got coming:
“The parallels are truly stunning,” says Joseph Farah, founder of WND, who is producing a video documentary about Cahn’s findings. “They are too numerous and too powerful to relate in news story form. In fact, they are overwhelming in their number and their exactitude. I am persuaded God is trying to tell America something and Rabbi Cahn has found the key to unlocking the message.”
And I’m sure the fact that you’re making money by selling the book to your credulous followers is purely coincidental.
As usual at the Worldnutdaily, it’s the comment section where the fun really begins. Did you know Obama is possessed by demons?
As a Canadian, I’ve been watching this practiced fraud Obama very carefully, even before his election. Beyond narcissism, he is demonically-possessed… make no doubt about it. He continues to hypnotize the media, the elect and the majority of voters despite his systematic destruction of all that is good in America. He may well win again as the majority are still dumbed-down. Basically what Hitler did to Germans. Obama uses Double-Speak as in Orwell’s 1984. Bait and Switch. People swoon and go back to sleep. Despite his muslim upbringing and now pretending to be Christian, he is definitely atheist.
Well as long as you’re being rational about this.
