The Harbinger Man's 'The Book of Mysteries' a must-read devotional
He has riveted believers around the country and the world with “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of The Shemitah.” As an an encore, messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s bestseller on Amazon.com, is on an entirely different scale. It’s nothing less than “hundreds of Harbingers” and spiritual secrets being revealed for the first time in history.
Rabbi Cahn described his newest work, “The Book of Mysteries,” in a recent interview with George Noory on the popular radio program “Coast to Coast.” He described the spectacular variety of the hidden biblical truths he has uncovered in his latest sensation.
“If ‘The Harbinger’ is revealing a mystery and ‘The Shemitah’ is revealing a mystery, ‘The Book of Mysteries’ is uncovering hundreds of mysteries,” he said. “Imagine, in a sense, if you were opening up this ancient chest with what I believe are some of the greatest mysteries of the ages. Mysteries of the End Times, mysteries of heaven, mysteries hidden in the writings of the rabbis, mysteries of your life even. This is a gigantic thing. And there are hundreds.”
Debuting at No. 4 on Publisher’s Weekly top hardcover section category, “The Book of Mysteries” allows the reader not only a year of remarkable biblical insight, but also the keys to unlocking mysteries that have endured for more than two millennia.
Below is an exclusive excerpt from “The Book of Mysteries”:
THE MACCABEAN BLUEPRINT
The teacher led me through the darkness to the golden menorah, which stood in the center of its chamber. He lit the first of its seven lights.
“We’ve spoken of Chanukah,” said the teacher, “the Festival of Lights, how it commemorates the victory of God’s people over evil. … But there’s more to it. Chanukah contains a mystery. It’s not only a commemoration but a prophetic shadow. It begins when an evil king sets up an idol in the holy place, the desecration of the Temple, the ‘Abomination Desolation.’ And yet Messiah speaks of an Abomination Desolation yet to come in the last days. So Chanukah contains a template, a prophetic blueprint of that which will take place at the end of the age.”
“Beyond the abomination, what else does it foretell?”
“The account begins with the apostasy of God’s people. The people who know God and who were to keep His ways, even His ministers, apostatized, turned away from God, and embraced the ways of the godless and the current spirit of the age. And so it will be in the last days. … There will be a great falling away, a great apostasy. The account goes on to document the rise of a world culture that seeks to merge all cultures into one and to compel everyone to abandon their faith. Any culture, faith, people, or person that stands in its way, it seeks to stamp out. So it will be at the end of the age … a global culture … and the persecution of God’s people … a civilization that criminalizes the ways of God, abolishes the Word of God, overturns the order of God, blasphemes the Name of God, desecrates the sacred things of God, and wars against the people of God. So it will be at the end.”
“Is there any hope in the blueprint?” I asked.
“Always,” he said. “Though most went along with the apostasy and the darkness, there was a remnant who would not go along, who held strong, and who became the resistance … the Maccabees. And God anointed them and empowered them to overcome the darkness and to usher in the light, thus, the Festival of Lights. Learn of the Maccabean Blueprint and follow its keys.” Then he handed me the oil lamp. “Go ahead,” he said, motioning for me to light the remainder of the lights of the menorah. So I did. “And this is how you overcome,” he said. “You fight the darkness by shining into it the light of God.”
The Mission: Live today by the Maccabean Blueprint. Stand with God and don’t be moved. Go against the odds. Fight the fight. Light up the darkness.
