Video Review: “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment”

As a child, believe it or not, on extremely rare occasions I would misbehave. And my poor stay-at-home mother would say, “You just wait until your father gets home! You’re getting an awful spanking! Part of the punishment was waiting in dread until 5:30 p.m., knowing my fate when my father came home from work. But when the spanking finally came, at least I knew I deserved it.
Personally, I feel like now it’s 5:30 p.m. in America. God has sent many faithful servants for decades to warn America to repent from our sins, such as Billy Graham, D. James Kennedy, Jerry Falwell, etc. Billy Graham’s wife once said that “If God doesn’t judge America, He will need to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah!”
Economically and politically, God has also sent many leaders to warn of our nation’s decline, thanks to the socialists who have bankrupted us. Senator Jim DeMint said, in a February 15, 2012 interview on CNBC, that “I'm afraid we’re on the verge of losing this country that so many have worked and sacrificed for and died for…I just don’t think people get the urgency. The debt is already bigger than our economy. We can’t borrow much more money.”
A small minority of citizens have heeded the warnings such as above, and tried to warn others, living for decades dreading America’s inevitable 5:30 p.m. spanking. Unfortunately, now that we are getting punished by our Heavenly Father, many Americans, especially our political leaders, are too arrogant to admit it. One would think that almost four years of the current socialist regime’s goal to destroy the country would be enough to awaken us, but apparently not. Space does not permit a review of all the problems that America now faces, which continue to worsen daily.
But if you know anyone who will not admit this, then the Christian documentary, “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” is a tremendous witnessing tool that they need to see. Produced by World Net Daily, the Christian news website, this video thoroughly documents the exact parallels between the destruction of Israel by the Assyrians and the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11 and subsequent financial decline in America. If the pure facts of our spiritual and economic decline are not enough, this video, which documents the extraordinary hand of God in our nation’s judgment, should be enough to awaken anyone. Of course, there will still be those naysayers who will think it is all just “coincidence.”
Copies of the video are selling so fast that WND can’t keep them in stock. The source for the material is Messianic Rabbi Jonathan Cahn of the Jerusalem Center/Beth Israel in Wayne, New Jersey, and New York Times best-selling author of “The Harbinger” upon which the video is based. The premise of the book centers around the verse in Isaiah 9:10, which says “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” Since stones and cedars are stronger than bricks and sycamores, the essence of this verse is that, after being struck by an initial attack from the Assyrians, Israel defiantly and unrepentantly told God that they would rebuild even stronger. Of course, eventually the Assyrians scattered the ten tribes of Israel, never to be found even to this day.
This video is so incredible that it is difficult to write a review for fear of spoiling it for the reader. For example, Manhattan is noted for its buildings, not trees. But incredibly, as the last tower fell on 9/11, some debris flew across the street and uprooted a sycamore tree on the St. Paul’s Cathedral grounds! And then the next day, Sen. Tom Daschle spoke at a national memorial service and read this same verse! It would have been virtually impossible for him to have known about the tree. Then three years later, a cedar tree was replanted in the same spot! Yet no one even understood that their acts of defiance were exactly like those of Israel, millennia before.
Rabbi Cahn lists nine harbingers that have occurred, both in the last days of Israel just before their destruction, and also in America after 9/11. The first is the breach, when an enemy is allowed to attack the land, as happened on 9/11. The second is the sign of the terrorist, who strikes fear in the hearts of the citizens. The third is the sign of the bricks, the rubble of their destruction. The fourth harbinger is the sign of the tower, or the nation rebuilding, as was done with the Twin Towers, as a sign of defiance to God to become even stronger than before. The fifth sign is the gazet stone, laid as a sign of the strength of the rebuilding, which was replicated when a granite cornerstone from the Adirondacks was laid as part of the new Twin Towers’ foundation. The sixth sign is that of the sycamore, struck down in the attack. The seventh harbinger is that of the cedar tree, planted to replace the weaker sycamore. The eighth sign is the utterance, the vow spoken on behalf of the people by its leaders. The ninth harbinger is that of the prophecy, again spoken by the nation’s leaders.
This all may sound hopeless, but Rabbi Cahn makes sure to explain that God still loves us and is trying warn us by giving us these signs. He cites the well-known verse of 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” The situation may look desperate, but there is still time for America to repent and be saved.
There are plenty more signs from God detailed in this incredible video, but I won’t ruin it for you. Please get a copy as soon as possible and show it to your friends. This excellent video could be very instrumental in waking people up to God’s power and judgment and start a revival across America. We can only trust in God to save America, not any politician.
