No. 1 Christian book, video both carry same message

WASHINGTON – The No. 1 Christian book in America and the No. 1 Christian video in America both carry the same message: “The God of Israel is speaking to America through an ancient prophecy.”
It’s not surprising that millions of Christians are picking up on these messages. But the secular world has not only missed the messages, it has missed the phenomenon of record interest in them by Christians.
  • Will You Boldly Proclaim"I am a Christian"? Sign the pledge now!
That’s what WND founder Joseph Farah has to say about the undeniable success of two ventures – “The Harbinger,” a book by Jonathan Cahn, and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” a video documentary about the same revelations Cahn writes about in the book.
Here are some facts:
  • The No. 1 faith video in America today, according to, is“The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
  • The No. 1 book at is “The Harbinger.”
  • The No. 1 fiction book in the Christian Book Association is “The Harbinger.”
  • “The Harbinger” has been on the New York Times bestsellers list all 10 weeks of 2012.
“Somehow, the secular media world picked up on the astronomical success of Rick Warren’s “Purpose-Driven Life” a few years ago and gave the book plenty of attention,” says Farah. “But there has not been a single story in the American secular press about amazing success of “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” the documentary it inspired. And there’s much more newsworthy in the content of these works than there was in Warren’s book.”
Farah should know. He’s the producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment”who has worked closely with author Jonathan Cahn on the project and helped market “The Harbinger.”
“The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” shot to the top of the bestsellers among faith films a week after its release on DVD. Yet it has only been promoted at WND.
It is also soared to the No. 2 most popular documentary of any kind at Amazon.
In January, “The Harbinger,” by Cahn, a messianic rabbi from New Jersey, exploded onto the publishing scene, immediately becoming a surprise New York Times bestseller, already read by hundreds of thousands nationwide.
Last week, a video documentary exploring the central message of Cahn’s thesis – that ancient Israel’s experience described in Isaiah 9:10 is being relived by the United States today – was released nationwide by WND Videos.
“A number of years ago, as I was standing at the edge of Ground Zero in New York City, I came across the first puzzle piece of an ancient biblical mystery and a prophetic message known as ‘The Harbinger’ that concerns the future of America,” explains Cahn, who helped write the two-hour documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment.”
Cahn say he has since found nine harbingers that tie the problems America has experienced beginning Sept. 11, 2001, with parallels that led to the destruction of ancient Israel.
“Before God judges a nation, He sends warning,” explains Cahn. “He sent warning to ancient Israel. He even allowed its enemies to breach its borders in a devastating strike that would traumatize the nation. It was a wake-up call, the call to return to God. But the nation responded with defiance. God then gave nine harbingers of judgment, nine prophetic signs, alarms and foreshadows of what was to come. Now America is the nation in rapid departure from God’s will. And God likewise allowed an enemy to breach its borders in a devastating strike – the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It was, likewise, a wake-up call. But America, like Israel, has not responded with repentance, but with defiance. And now the nine harbingers of judgment have reappeared and have done so on American soil.”
“I had a chance to hear Jonathan Cahn’s message last fall,” said Farah. “Then I had an opportunity to read an early manuscript of ‘The Harbinger’ before it was released in January. I was determined to produce this video documentary, ‘The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,’ because I believe its message is the most important one for Americans at this moment in history. In fact, I believe this project may be the most important one of my life. That’s how strongly I feel about it.”
