The Bible is supernatural. It contains prophecies in the Old Testament concerning the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ that were fulfilled to the letter in the New Testament verifying that He is the Son of God. No other book on the planet can claim that uniqueness. Spiritual Leader and Rabbi Jonathan Cahn was on the show Sid Roth’s radio program Messianic Vision and mentioned this incredible allegorical link to 9/11 in the Bible. This passage from Isaiah 9 is fulfilled word for word on 9/11, Jonathan Cahn explains:
God gives a very clear pattern for judgment and warning on a nation, when it enters this critical period - before the point of no return but just right at the door . . .9/11 was the beginning of judgment on one hand and the signs, and warnings, and wake-up calls of ultimate judgment on the other . . .The key scripture here is in Isaiah 9 where the people of the northern kingdom [of ancient Israel] had gone so much into sin, God let the enemy come in and make his initial attack. And then instead of repenting, what Isaiah records in 9:8, he says, “The people said in arrogance the bricks have fallen but we will rebuild with quarried stones: the sycamores have been cut down but we will replace them with cedars.” Now, in that alone there are about eight signs . . .America, instead of repenting said, “We’re going to build stronger and higher,” just like they did in Israel, and they began the rebuilding with the sign of the quarried stone.
The next sign linked to the beginning dawning judgment on a nation is the cutting down, the falling sycamore tree . . . A freak event happened on September 11th, in the destruction, a steel beam from the North Tower was hurled from the sky, through the sky and struck down a near-by object, it was a [sycamore] tree. . .
The biblical cedar . . . refers to a pine tree, it’s of the Conifer family, it’s also called the Panacea tree . . .Two years after September 11th, at the end of 2003, a strange site over Ground Zero: an object is being lowered from the sky into the place, into the hole where the sycamore tree had been struck down, on the very same site. That object that was coming down was a tree. What kind of tree? It was a panacea [cedar] tree, the same exact tree mentioned in the bible.
“The Lord sent a word against Jacob, and it has fallen upon Israel. All the people shall know– even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria– who say in pride and arrogance of heart: “The bricks are fallen down. But we will rebuild with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will replace them into cedars.”
Isaiah 9:8-10 (NIV)
September 11th, 2001, St. Paul’s Chapel was a place where police, firefighters and volunteers at Ground Zero could go for hope and prayer. It was saved from the collapsing buildings by one giant sycamore tree that was uprooted by debris (‘The Little Chapel That Could. - St. Paul’s Chapel, Manhattan.’ Episcopal News Service).
Nathan Brockman reports in the Trinity News, “The Tree of Hope was planted to replace a sycamore on chapel property that was felled by debris on 9/11.” A crane on Church Street was used to lift the new tree over the fence and into the northwest corner of St. Paul’s churchyard (‘The Tree that Saved St. Paul’s’).
Governor George Pataki, at the ceremony three years after 9/11, said, “Today we take 20 tons of Adirondack granite – the bedrock of our state – and place it as the foundation, the bedrock of a new symbol of American strength and confidence.” That was the first stone in rebuilding the Freedom Tower which will replace the twin towers at 1,776 feet tall (‘New York Lays Cornerstone For Freedom Tower.’ CNN). This was the hewn or cut stone in rebuilding the nation. Rabbi Jonathan Cahn explains even further:
That would be enough but there’s more. The ultimate sign here of the scripture is that Israel, when it had been chastened by the Lord, when He allowed that attack to come, their response was to defy Him. It took the form of the leader saying, “Listen, the Lord may have struck down the bricks but we’re going to rebuild stronger with a quarried stone. He may have struck down the sycamore tree but we’re going to rebuild stronger with the cedar tree.”
Well, the actual sign is from the leaders themselves making this vow, they made it right after the Assyrian army had come in . . . After 9/11, the next day, it was September 12th . . .the government issued its first response, that morning, it was . . . Democratic Majority Leader Tom Daschle and he said . . .as it was done 3,000 years ago in Israel . . . “‘The bricks have fallen down but we will rebuild . . . The sycamore have been felled but we will replace them with cedars.’ This is what we will do. We will rebuild.” Here, out of the mouth of the government, out of the Senate Majority Leader are the actual words. He thought they were words of encouragement; he didn’t realize what he was doing . . .He didn’t realize that this is the sign of a nation when it’s at the dawn of its judgment. And unfortunately, it’s the sign of the nation saying, “We are not going to return.” Actually, it was repeated by John Edwards, who was running for Vice President, and just on the anniversary of 9/11 last year he used the same scripture . . .without realizing he was pronouncing judgment on America.
Solomon dedicated the Temple of Jerusalem. He prayed with the leaders, he interceded and he spoke about future times when the nation would depart from God but if they would come back to Him then He would have mercy . . . There is another principle to understand: when judgment comes, it will come to the ground where the nation has been dedicated . . .to God. That happened to Israel; judgment ultimately came to the temple. The ultimate sign of the judgment of God was that the temple was destroyed . . .
George Washington was inaugurated, and in the same way, there was a call to dedicate America, there was a call that day for prayer. And Washington gave his speech, the first ever presidential speech, and in it he gave a warning. He said, and I’m paraphrasing, he said, “No nation can expect the favor of God . . .if it turns away from God’s ways” . . . Then he took all the leaders there, the House of Representatives, the Senate, all that, all of them together went on foot from the place of the inaugural and they went to a little church, a little chapel. They spent two hours dedicating America in prayer to God . . .Where was America dedicated to God? Where did it begin? Well, the capital then was not Washington D.C. and it wasn’t Philadelphia, it was New York City . . .And that place [St. Paul’s Chapel] is the corner of Ground Zero . . . All around Ground Zero, every building was in some way shattered . . .every single one except for one. There was one building that was not damaged . . . That was the chapel where America was dedicated to God.
Here are the exact words from Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle in his floor statement,
Nothing can replace the losses that have been suffered. I know there is only the smallest measure of inspiration that can be taken from this devastation. But there is a passage in the Bible, from Isaiah, that I think speaks to all of us at times like this. “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.” That is what we will do. We will rebuild and we will recover.
After I heard of this amazing symbolism in Isaiah written thousands of years before September 11, 2001, I began searching the Internet to see what other links there might be to 9/11 and God’s Word. I came across a website called www.greaterthings.com and found the following Scriptures below. I found the link between Samson’s suicide very interesting because he sacrifices his own life like the supposed terrorists in order to kill three thousand people, about the same number of people who perished in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“Now the lords of the Philistines gathered together to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice, and they said: ‘Our god has delivered into our hands Samson our enemy!’ When the people saw him they praised their god; for they said: ‘Our god has delivered into our hands our enemy, The destroyer of our land, And the one who multiplied our dead.’ So it happened when their hearts were merry, that they said, ‘Call for Samson, that he may perform for us.’ So they called for Samson from the prison, and he performed for them. And they stationed him between two pillars. Then Samson said to the lad who held him by the hand, ‘Let me feel the pillars which support the temple, so that I can lean on them.’ Now the temple was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there–about three thousand men and women on the roof watching while Samson preformed. Then Samson called to the LORD saying, ‘O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!’ And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars which supported the temple, and he braced himself against them, one on his right and the other on his left. Then Samson said, ‘Let me die with the Philistines!’ And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead that he killed at his death were more that he had killed in his life.”
Judges 16:23-30 (NKJV)
“There will be on every high mountain and on every high hill Rivers and streams of waters, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.”
Isaiah 30:25 (NKJV)
Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near. We are running out of time America! Turn from your sins and come to Jesus Christ. Those of us that are Christians must pray that God gives the leaders of our government wisdom concerning these last days of our country and world. Pray that George Bush will rededicate his life to Jesus and change his ways and the ways of this country. Just as Solomon dedicated the Temple for Israel, his words apply for us today:
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7: 14 (NKJV)
Humble yourself. Pray and seek the Lord or 9/11 is just the beginning of judgment upon this country.
