What I think about The Harbinger [Featured Book]

Each month I introduce to you a book that has impacted my life, or that has gotten me to think and see differently. This month I have been reading and listening to The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future by Jonathan Cahn.

Preceding the book’s table of contents, you find this statement.

“What you are about to read is presented in the form of a story, but what is contained within the story is real.”  

The Opening Lines

“An ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future.”


“What would I think?”

“Yes, what would you think?”

“I’d think it was a plot for a movie. Is that it? Is that what you’re presenting…a movie manuscript?”


“A plot for a novel?”


“Then what?”

He was silent.

“Then what?” she repeated. . .

It made me want to read more, too. You should.

Why I am Glad I am Reading It

I do not know all the statistics, but The Harbinger book became a best seller very soon after it was released in 2012. On Amazon alone it has over 4,000 five star reviews. Well, that made me just a little bit curious to know why.

The Kindle version of the book was on sale last month, so I bought a copy. From reading the opening lines, I knew this book was different and timely.

It has been eye opening for me, concerning what is happening in the world right now. I seek understanding, and sometimes that requires knowing history. That is where I have been over the last few weeks — trying to understand how what has happened in history affects us today. The crisis in the Middle East? The racial divides in our nation? Genocide? Persecution? Sickness and disease? Terrorists? What is God’s plan?  So many questions.

I am not saying this book has all the answers, but for me personally it has been God’s way of saying, “You want to understand? Start here.” He knows I take nothing at face value and will study. But already so many things I thought, have been confirmed.

Hear what the Spirit is saying.

Reading it has not made me afraid. Reading it has made me want to pray.

Why You Should Read It

The honest truth about why I believe you should read The Harbinger is because it will get you to expand your thinking. Sometimes we do not even realize how small we are, until we realize how big the world is and how big God’s plan is for the world. It would be my hope that you would recognize the scheme of the enemy to keep us distracted and desensitized, because the devil wants us to miss the whole point of life.

This book will get your attention.


The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future by Jonathan Cahn

The back cover reads, “The prophetic mysteries are factual but revealed through a riveting narrative the reader will find hard to put down. The Harbinger opens with the appearance of a man burdened with a message he has received from a mysterious figure called The Prophet. The Prophet has given him nine seals, each containing a message about America’s future. As he tells of his encounters with the Prophet, from a skyscraper in New York City, to a rural mountaintop, to Capitol Hill, to Ground Zero, the mystery behind each seal is revealed. As the story unfolds, each revelation becomes another piece in a larger and larger puzzle, the ramifications of which are, even now, altering the course of America and the world.”
