In case you have not yet read "The Harbinger" by Jonathan Cahn, here is a quick summary of what the book is about:
In this article it says:
Cahn also reveals in “The Harbinger” and “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” something that readers and viewers universally find astonishing – that New York’s Ground Zero actually represents more than the former financial center of the country. It represents the exact place at which America was first consecrated to God in prayer by the country’s new leaders.
“When judgment came to Israel, the calamity returned the people’s attention to the place where the nation had been consecrated to God – the Temple Mount,” says Cahn. “God was calling the nation back to Himself. What about 9/11? Could there be, in the American calamity, as well, a mystery of return? Could there be a prophetic message hidden in the place where it happened? There is a place where America was consecrated to God in prayer. It is also a place linked to a prophetic warning given on that same day – uttered by the nation’s first president – now coming to pass.”
In 1789, newly inaugurated President George Washington gave a prophetic warning at Federal Hall in New York City. He declared that America’s prosperity and protection were dependent upon its adherence to God. Later, the political leaders of the young nation gathered at St. Paul’s Chapel to commit the nation’s future to God’s purposes. That chapel is located at Ground Zero and miraculously survived 9/11 virtually unscathed.
I believe that what took place on August 2, 2012, is part of the fulfillment of the abomination that causes desolation being set up. During his visit earlier this summer, the President toured the rising skyscraper, greeted construction workers and signed the steel beam. In red marker, the President wrote: "We remember. We rebuild. We come back stronger!" The beam signed by President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama was installed at One World Trade Center in New York, N.Y., August 2, 2012. This abomination that was once again written and confirmed by President Obama was SET UP on August 2, 2012, exactly 1290 days after Obama became the US President. By the way, this was already August 3 in many parts of the world and was the beginning of the Tu B'Av festival that the Lord was pointing many watchman to. What took place on this date was the fulfillment of the prophecy in Daniel 12:11: "And from the time the daily shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be 1290 days." I believe what this is saying is that between the time that the Antichrist raises himself up to or exalts himself into the presidential office through lawlessness and unrighteousness and the time that the abomination (that causes desolation to come upon the people of his nation) is SET UP, there will be 1290 days. Please watch these 2 videos for a study on what these verses are actually pointing to:
RED ALERT - Abomination of Desolation is PLACED IN THE HOLY PLACE
1290 - 1335 REVEALED! The daily of Daniel - MUST SEE
In her study, the lady from the videos explains how the Lord led her to see that the "daily being taken away" refers to the Antichrist raising himself up to or exalting himself to the presidential office through lawlessness and unrighteousness (Daniel 8:11-14). What makes this first video so incredible is that the Lord showed this to her 2 weeks before the abomination was set up. She did not even know what was going to happen on August 2/3, 2012, only that it would be the end of the 1290 day count from when Obama was sworn into office. What took place on August 2, 2012, was definitely an abomination that was set up, and the final straw that seals America's judgment, destruction, and desolation.
However, I also want to say that I believe this is only a PART of the fulfillment of these prophecies. I believe the judgment is against America, as the nation on earth that was supposed to represent Christ to the world. It is also against Israel, as the nation that was also supposed to represent God to the world. I believe this prophecy will find, and is finding, fulfillment in the land of Israel, which will also come under God's judgment as the "Gentiles" begin to trample on the Holy City for 42 months. Both the Christians and the Jews are the 2 witnesses to the earth, and they will repent (sackcloth and ashes) for 42 months after the destruction comes to both nations and many Christians are left-behind at the time of the Rapture.
In Israel, what we see happening is that the Jews are being forbidden to pray (sacrifice) at the Temple Mount. Here are a few recent articles of interest:
What we see happening is that Jews are not allowed to offer any type of prayer at the Temple Mount, their holiest site, and if they are caught doing so, they can be arrested. So we are seeing a DOUBLE fulfillment of the prophecies. The abomination has been set up in the US at one of our "holy sites", where America was first consecrated to God in prayer by the country’s new leaders. And we also see the holy place in Israel being desecrated, which is being allowed to happen by the leaders of Israel, and is also an abomination to God.
Immediately after Daniel tells us when the abomination will be set up (1290 days after Obama takes over the presidency), he tells us that we are blessed if we wait for and reach the end of the 1335 day count, which ends on the Feast of Trumpets 2012.
If you have not yet read "The Harbinger", I would strongly encourage you to read the book in order to get a better and deeper understanding of what happened on August 2, 2012, and why it was such an abomination to the Lord. I believe very strongly that the Lord is telling us that August 2/3, 2012, Tu B'Av, was the final cry that the Bridegroom is coming, the last warning to prepare ourselves for what is about to take place in September. The seals of Revelation 6 are about to open at any minute and most of the Church is sleeping. It's time to wake up and to wake those up who are still asleep! Our Bridegroom is coming!
