The Unfolding of the Mystery
I have noticed when people recommend or gift you a book; it’s a book they like; not one you will necessarily enjoy.
As in most statements, there are exceptions — my wife being one. She recommended a book, “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn. I got hooked in the first chapter of this 262-page book. “The Harbinger opens with the appearance of a man burdened with a series of messages he has received in the form of nine seals. Each seal unveils a prophetic mystery concerning America and its future that takes you on an amazing journey.”
When you read this book, you’ll recognize the similarity of the history of the Israelite nation and modern-day America. It’s a wake-up call as we approach the return of Jesus. But as Scripture reveals; No one knows the day or hour.
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken, and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken, and the other left. Watch, therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Matthew 24:36–44, NKJV)
I wouldn’t mind if the entire world read more books, but I know that can’t be. Readership studies show that last year somewhere between 600,000 and 1,000,000 books were published in the US alone. Those 75 and older read the most, with an average of 51 minutes per day.
“The Harbinger” is for avid and casual readers. The unfolding of the mystery will hold your interest.
Now I‘m waiting for a book recommendation, so I can prepare myself for a new posting.
