The Isaiah 9:10 Harbinger



The Harbinger - Isaiah 9:10


Isaiah 9:10 (NASB)

 “The bricks have fallen down,
But we will rebuild with smooth stones;
The sycamores have been cut down,
But we will replace them with cedars.”


Isaiah 9:10 - The Harbinger


Have you read this book or seen this movie?  That are your thoughts?  It makes a lot of sense to me.

The basic recap is this:

Isaiah recounts the defiance of the 10 Northern Tribes (Israel) in 700+bc after the Assyrians come and attack.  Instead of humility they announce their defiance.  You Assyrians have knocked down our weak mud bricks.  We'll rebuild with solid rock.  You have cut down our weak sycamores.  We'll replant might cedars (the word is pinecea = pine).

Israel was ultimately destroyed because of their lack of repentance.

The authors parallel the events since 9/11 with that of Israel.  After 9/11 this same verse (Isaiah 9:10 was quoted by the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate and similarly by the President of the USA).

Across the street from the North Tower is St. Paul's Chapel.  In 1789 during the drafting of the constitution George Washington, the house and senate took a break from their deliberations to pray at this church for God's grace as we sought to follow Him.

In the yard of this church was a sycamore.  A tree that was split in half by the collapse of the tower.  The tree died and was preserved and made into a monument.

It was replaced with a cedar.

For a cornerstone a 20 ton Adirondack cornerstone was laid.

Also exactly seven years apart on the Hebrew calendar the DOW Jones fell exactly 777 points.

In between we had Katrina and have since had fires, floods, earthquakes, economic trouble, hatred, divisiveness and a growing hatred of God and His people.

Interesting to me that 15 million hectares of North American pine trees have been killed by drought and the mountain pine beetle.

This is roughly 37 million acres or 50,000 square miles (sections).  Roughly equivalent to all the trees in Texas.

Now we have three dozen wildfires + floods in the upper midwest and in Florida/Georgia.

  1. Although the Lord may well judge this nation very soon or is already - there is another side to this story. The Harbinger is not what it purports to be.

  2. What is the other side to the story? In what way does The Harbinger fail to
    deliver what it purports to be? I am very interested in your response because I have read the book and fail to see where you are coming from.

  3. I agree. I read the book and I don't see where the author has strayed from its stated purpose. All the points made at biblicalintegrity.org are weak and simply a commentator's opinion.
