“Build Back Better”?

Jonathan Cahn’s The Harbinger came in for a considerable amount of criticism from within Christian circles, especially by some self-appointed guardians of Bible truth within the arena of discernment. His was a novel based on Bible prophecy that had much of America’s history, future, and sins linked in a creative and spiritual way to Israel’s history, sins, and fate.

I, myself, along with some colleagues in prophecy ministries, was questioned for not condemning the author’s fictional yet somehow eerily factual presentation. His character—the prophet—gave a declaration that 2 Chronicles 7:14 was not only for the children of Israel, but for all of God’s people. I’m totally in agreement with that belief.

If God’s people, who are called by His Name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways, He will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

How anyone can read that declaration by the Creator of mankind and not see that He is speaking to all of the creation that can truly call Him “Father” is beyond me. And yes, God made a covenant with only one nation, I’m fully aware. But He made a covenant much more comprehensive. His Word, the Bible, declares that all who call on His Name will be saved. These are all people called by His Name. They are in God’s family, forever.

Getting back to Jonathan Cahn’s novel, its premise is, in large part, that America has turned from God and that judgment is on the way if repentance isn’t forthcoming. He presents in his story that what happened following the 9/11 attack on New York City, the World Trade Center Towers, and the Pentagon harbored some of the same sorts of judgments as Israel faced in ancient days.

This is, I believe Cahn’s novelistic approach indicates, because God doesn’t change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. To turn from Him and seek other gods—whether material wealth or any other—is to invite His holy judgment. In the interim—between unrepented-of sins and the time of ultimate judgment and wrath—the Lord implements corrective or remedial/restorative actions.

The prophet character explains throughout The Harbinger the similarities between what faced ancient Israel and what faces America today. He also points out the same mistakes made by leadership and the people of Israel of old and what was taking place following the 9/11 disaster.

The storyline is based primarily on the following scriptural presentation.

The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars. Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. (Isaiah 9:8–12)

The prophet in the story reminds the protagonist that a similar declaration was made by President George W. Bush following the 9/11 attack. He said in promising to wage war on terror, “We will rebuild New York.” Then the prophet points out that, during the great financial crisis of 2009, President Barack Obama—regarding the financial disaster that faced the nation—declared in his inaugural address on January 24, 2009, “We will rebuild.”

Cahn’s prophet character lets the protagonist come to the epiphany that both presidents had inadvertently declared the same thing as the leaders of ancient Israel. They would, in effect, build bigger and better. George W. Bush promised to build back the skyscrapers—the bricks that had fallen—bigger and better. Obama declared simply that he intended to build all of America bigger and better.

At any rate, the prophet puts forth the warning. There can be no restoration apart from invoking the Holy Name of God and earnestly seeking Him in the matter of forgiveness of sins, either personally or nationally.

Now we come to the apparent winners of the fraudulent presidential election. The Democrats have, for the record, deliberately not allowed God’s Name to be used in party platform matters. Their supposed successful candidates have as their political slogan “Build Back Better.” The challenge, in my view, to the God of Heaven could not be made more blatant.

The following excerpt makes manifest how the entire globalist, anti-God cabal—the wickedness in high places of Ephesians 6:12—has embraced or perhaps originated the slogan “Build Back Better.” It also seems to prove the insidious nature of the cabal in their ability to co-opt, thus, as in Paul’s perilous-times forewarnings, make traitors of those they control—President Trump’s supposed friend, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, for example.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has dashed hopes that 2021 will be any better than 2020 by tweeting his support of the Great Reset.

Proud that the UK is taking over the 2021 Presidency of the G7 today. Hosting both the G7 Summit and @COP26 will make this a hugely important year for Global Britain and I look forward to welcoming our friends and allies as we beat COVID and build back better from the pandemic.

“Build back better” is, as Johnson is perfectly well aware, the slogan of the World Economic Forum’s deeply sinister Fourth Industrial Revolution — aka “the Great Reset” – whose aims include the deliberate crashing of the world economy, the crushing and destruction of small businesses, and the creation of a new cash-free society in which no one (save the technocratic elite) owns private property.

Unfortunately for Johnson, people have started wising up to what Build Back Better actually means.

Here are some of the comments which greeted his New Year message:

YOU C**** !!! You deliberately destroyed things for your WEF/China masters !! Build Back Better Bollox !!

Could y’all please stop scaring us with the “build back better” joke? Thank you.

“Build back better” is the slogan of progressive technocracy. Why don’t you come clean with people and let them know what it is you want? You market yourself as a conservative, which is preposterous given the policies you promote.”

“More fascism, more taxes, more authoritarianism. Rot In Hell!”(“Delingpole: Bojo Tweets Praise for the Great Reset. Strap in Everyone, 2021 is Going to be a Wild Ride,” Breitbart.com, RR News, January 2, 2021)

Building Back Better? The building project—the Re-Set—is destined to suffer the same, deserved fate as that effort of Genesis chapter 11. The neo-Tower of Babel building project will seem to succeed for a time. But all who are complicit in constructing that evil edifice will suffer the consequences of Psalms chapter 2.

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure… Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. (Psalm 2:5, 9)

Take comfort. Something big is up with the Lord. So keep looking up! (Luke 21: 28)

    Some highly educated and respected bible teachers recommend Jonathan Cahn and I trust them implicitly, it is a stunning book. I have come to the conclusion that those who vilify Cahn are plain jealous such a godly emotion in a Christian don’t you think?

  2. Julia Pomeroy says:

    I forgot to add that I am deeply embarrassed to be British and very grateful that the Lord called my beloved and me away from that country nearly nine years ago.
    The article was really good, by the way Terry.

  3. Faye says:

    I have read The Harbinger and am re-reading it so that I can read Harbinger II. It is a stunning book and states very clearly what happens when we think we don’t need God. I’m just sorry that the OLD Democratic leadership in Congress won’t be around long enough to “enjoy” the disaster they are dragging us all into!

    Wow!!!! Terry this is so incredibly correct. Johnathan Khan has been remarkably on the ball.
    There is a worldwide conspiracy which is now, out in the open. The WEF and all of the players linked to it have sold out their souls to the evil one.
    Just a few moments ago I was following a link from The Times. It has an article about Prince Charles and mentions ”his” 10 point Terra Carter/Earth Charter. I followed the links; One planet summit, Natural Capital investment, Mirova, Nataxis Investment Managers SA, Block chaining, bitcoin,

    This thus lead me to worldwide control of finance and of course our individual ability to buy and sell.

    There is much mention of cyber security and how ”we would have the comfort of knowing that ”our” finance nd everyday activities would be safe and secure. HMM

    There are those who will have administrative access to all of thes aspects and therfore the ability to identify those who do not conform and therefore keep us dear brethren, supposedly, under ”their” control.

    This will require a chief executive and I have no doubt where this Godless individual will come from.

    BUT GOD!!! He is in control and he has allowed the evil one to devise and construct this evil plan.

    We continue to declare Him, Jesus Christ of Nazareth as Lord, Saviour and King, I do belive He is coming very soon to establish His Kingdom after the Great Tribulation. We know that prior to this He will call His Bride home first. Maranatha.

    I found The Harbinger insightful and yet convicting of a world spun out of control. The Harbinger II conveys a similar feeling for me. Found that “we the people” deserve to know and serve a God who sees us as much more than the term the left uses, deplorables. Thank you for this article.
