Harbinger Storm

“Israel was unique among nations in that it was conceived and dedicated at its foundation for the purposes of God…But there was one other—a civilization also conceived and dedicated to the will of God from its conception, America.”

The above passage of dialogue from The Harbinger, the huge best seller by Jonathan Cahn, is at the heart of the criticism the author received for his book, unduly so, in my view.

The harsh words of condemnation flowed from some I respect. Nonetheless, the criticism was wrong, and I am quite disappointed in them and question their discernment in leveling the charges, because they should be much more aware of exactly what Cahn was saying than they demonstrated. The critics clearly had not read his book in its entirety. The author’s words, as well as his book in its entirety, pointed out that America was, like Israel, dedicated at its birth to godly principles.

Jonathan Cahn Answers Dr. Ice

In Dr. Thomas Ice’s “A Critical Look At The Harbinger” he states that Jonathan Cahn “appears to be a strongly committed Christian and zealous in his work for the Lord.” This mention is appreciated and is an example of civility and respect which is not always so apparent in some of the attacks launched against The Harbinger in recent days. It is also one of the few parts of the article I can agree with. But before going onto that, I want to return the recognition to note that I believe Ice is also a strongly committed believer, sincere, and zealous for the Lord and for His coming. I don’t know a lot about his work, but I’m sure I would respect it. We are all on the same side in seeking to advance the Lord’s kingdom in light of His return. But sincere believers and teachers can also misunderstand, misperceive, and make major errors in their assessments. This is the case here as it has been with a number of others.
