HAVE WE RUN OUR COURSE AS A NATION
By; Gary L. Rodgers
Recently I have read two books that seem to meld their messages together in such a way as to send a strong warning to the United States with regard to the events that have struck our nation on 9/11 in 2001 including other events that have happened and continue to happen since that horrific date in our nation’s history.
The second book that I have read deals with the historical changes that have occurred within the nation of Israel in the past five hundred years and by all appearances if the next four blood moon occurrence follows the pattern of the last three, another historical change may very well be on the horizon for the nation Israel and the United States in the years 2014 and 2015.
The two books that I am speaking of is “The Harbinger” written by Jonathan Cahn a Jewish Messianic Rabbi from Wayne New Jersey who brings out an ancient prophetic mystery that appears to effect the paths taken by the United States from the book of Isaiah chapter 9 and specifically verse 10 as its key verse which reads, “ The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” This was a defiant response by the nation of Israel against the judgments of God. In essence they were saying “Who cares if God judges us? Whatever is torn down, we will rebuild with something better. We have nothing to fear from what God can bring against us.”
The second book that I am speaking of is a book written by Pastor John Hagee from Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas called, “Four Blood Moons”. In addition to reading the book I also searched the NASA website to verify dates and years.
I believe that both of these books have a message for us as a people and a nation; both for the United States and Israel, two nations that have been so blessed by the Lord our God. In the second half of Luke 12:48 it says “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required:” No doubt that both of our nations have been given much.
Rather than my going into a lot of detail I would urge everyone to at least watch the video of an interview with Jonathan Cahn at the following link.
In a booklet that I recently wrote (SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS) after having read the book “FOUR BLOOD MOONS” by Pastor John Hagee I have come to believe that one startling fact remains and that fact is that September of 2015 is the close of a Shemittah or Sabbatical year. The end of the seventh year, or year of Sabbath; a year in which the land was called to rest or heal.
While this was an observance that the nation Israel was commanded to follow, the Shemittah as mentioned by Jonathan Cahn in his book and in the video has had some impact on our country since the Shemittah of 9-11-2001 and 2009.
I would be interested to hear your comments on the video and I would urge you to buy the books.
