A harbinger is a message of dire alarm of sorts to alert one to impending danger.

Author, Jonathan Cahn, has written a book entitled THE HARBINGER.  Although it is fiction the message contained within is very real.  It parallels the fall of Israel in the 8th century to the demise of America.  It is more than a good read, more than a chilling drama that keeps you on the edge of your seat.  No, what is scary about this book is that the more you read, the more you see the parallels he is drawing.  You can read for yourself in the Bible what happened to ancient Israel when she turned her back on God.  She ignored the "harbingers" that God gave to her as warnings just as America is ignoring the warnings He has sent her today.

Franklin Graham stated this today on Facebook:

"There seems to be more corruption in the news every day. Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane was just found guilty on nine criminal charges. It didn’t matter that she was the top law enforcement officer in the state. And news reports say that House leaders sent a letter asking the Department of Justice to file charges against presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Our leaders in both parties are flawed, our political system is corrupt, and our nation is in trouble.
The Word of God says, “They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved” (2 Peter 2:19). We need to pray for the future of America. Join me in praying for leaders with integrity who fear God and look to Him for wisdom."

As we listen to the news each day, the drama playing out before our very eyes is almost a replay of what played out in ancient Israel.  As Israel moved farther and father away from God, God repeatedly warned her.  Finally He removed His hand of protection and she was taken into captivity for 70 years.  She ignored all the warnings.  

God has sent American many warnings, the most significant of which was 9/11.  But, did we heed it? No.  We went about our lives with a business as usual attitude.  It did not turn us back to God.  In fact, we have been moving farther and farther away from Him almost daily.  

The election that is before us is going to play a huge role in what happens to our future as a nation.  Have we crossed the line of no return?  Have we gone too far already?  Only God knows.  But we still need to repent as nation, turn from our wicked ways, pray and seek God's face and His forgiveness while there is still time.
