Worship returns after silence spanning 150 years

“The Harbinger Man” Jonathan Cahn’s message has been delivered to Washington and in Washington multiple times. It’s been handed out in Congress and it’s been thundered from a podium in Statuary Hall.
It’s been directed at senators, representatives, lawyers on the Supreme Court and even Barack Obama.
And it’s even triggered the return of worship services to the Capitol where they were routine during the early generations of the nation’s life, and then disappeared.
The “Jefferson Gathering” are meetings now held by Pastor Dan Cummins, who moved to Washington with his family after hearing the challenge in the message from Cahn to America: Repent and return to God.
Before it’s too late.
“There’s now weekly worship in the Capitol,” Cummins said. “After an absence of 150 years.”
Cummins relates the story of his call to action after hearing Cahn, and his move to Washington to start weekly worship services, in the newly released “The Harbinger Man.”
The subject of the documentary movie, which is surging on Amazon, is Cahn, his life, and his message.
Summarizing Cahn’s message, Joseph Farah, chief of WND Films, which produced the movie version of “The Harbinger,” called “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” says: “If God’s people, called by His name, would humble themselves and pray and seek His face, He would do these things: hear their prayers, forgive their sin, and heal their land. In other words, God was not expecting or demanding everyone to follow Him, just His kids, just His children, just the believers. Therefore, it is the believers who have this special responsibility. It is they who hold the key to the healing of our land.
“That’s the really good news Jonathan Cahn brings to us. It’s up to us; it’s up to believers to do this and do it now. Is that too much to expect?”
Washington and “The Harbinger” seemed destined to cross paths. The original book spoke of warnings being delivered to America, in parallel to the warnings given to the nation of Israel thousands of years ago.
Israel refused to heed God’s warnings, and fell into collapse. Cahn’s warnings are intended to set America on a different path.
Will it work?
That remains to be seen. After all, the Old Testament records when Israel was warned by God, the response was “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
In other words, we’ll do it ourselves.
When 9/11 happened, then-Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle stated, “America will emerge from this tragedy as we have emerged from all adversity – united and strong … 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.”
Then he read Isaiah 9:10: “The bricks are fallen down …”
Cahn explained when the parallel was revealed. “Daschle has no idea what he is doing here. He thinks he’s offering comforting words to a grief-stricken people, but he is actually embracing the spiritually defiant and arrogant words of the children of Israel…”
Who picked up that theme a short time later?
Sen. John Edwards. He preached on that very theme.
And who else?
On Feb. 24, 2009, Barack Obama said, “I want every American to know this: We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.”

Cahn admits in “The Harbinger Man” that his message seems destined for Washington.
He said the leaders represent the nation, and God’s warnings are given to them, too.
He personally delivered some just this year. It was at the Washington: A Man of Prayer event set up by Cummins.
It came just before the Supreme Court ruled to trash God’s definition of marriage and supplant it with one that includes same-sex duos.
WND reported then that Cahn “smacked down the Supreme Court’s assumption that it has the authority to redefine marrijage.
“The justices of the Supreme Court took up their seats [in a hearing] on whether they should strike down the biblical and historic definition of marriage,” he said. “That the event should even take place is a sign this is America of [George] Washington’s warning … a nation at war against its own foundation.”
Washington warned the smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation “that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself hath ordained.”
Cahn noted the Supreme Court opens sessions with the words, “God save the United States and this honorable court.”
“If this court should overrule the word of God and strike down the eternal rules of order and right that heaven itself ordained, how then will God save it?” he asked. “Justices, can you judge the ways of God? There is another court and there another judge, where all men and all judges will give account.
“If a nation’s high court should pass judgment on the Almighty, should you then be surprised God will pass judgment on the court and that nation? We are doing that which Israel did on the altars of Baal,” he said.
