Lately, I have been reading two best selling books by Jonathan Cahn, who is a Messianic Jew. "The Harbringer" and "The Mystery of the Shemitah" are both about the warnings, judgement and destruction of ancient Israel, and how today America is on the very same path. There have been two recent "shakings" (warnings/discipline) that have come upon America...in 2001 the devastation of the 9/11 attack, and 7 years later in 2008, the national financial ruin of the stock market crash. If America does not repent and return to God, there will continue to be warnings before final judgement comes. It's been 7 years ("Shemitah") since the last warning in 2008 and yet America keeps getting farther and farther from God. It seems to me that the third (and probably final warning to America) has already began, the "shaking" of Islamic terrorism gets stronger every single day. The only answer for America, as these two books point out, is the return to God through repentance....let us make the journey together!!!!
