(THE BLAZE) — On Tuesday evening, Glenn Beck hosted Jonathan Cahn, author of the provocative book, “The Harbinger,“ to discuss what is being called a work ”framed in fiction“ but based on ”fact.“ The premise of the book is that an ancient mystery harbors ”the secret of America’s future” and offers the world a a precognition of events that have recently come to pass. The book has become controversial for its claims.
Cahn, Senior Pastor and Messianic Rabbi of the the Jerusalem Center, Beth Israel, frequently appears on radio and television broadcasts around the country. According to his bio, his teachings are “widely known for revealing the deep mysteries of God’s word and for the restoring of the new covenant message to its original biblically Jewish richness and power.”
The ancient mystery, according to Cahn, explains everything from the September 11 attacks to the financial collapse of 2008 and beyond. The author posits that God is sending the U.S. a “prophetic message” of what is yet to come, just as he did once in ancient Israel. Thus, according to the book, these same “Nine Harbingers” are now manifesting themselves here on U.S. soil.
“The scary thing is these same nine harbingers are happening on American soil,” Cahn told Beck during the interview.
