NEW YORK (Worthy News)– The author of the "Harbinger," Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, warned the replacement of the fallen sycamore tree at Ground Zero, the "Tree of Hope" has finally been uprooted after it withered away and died. He told WND, "The ancient sign of nearing national judgment has been manifested. The erez tree has fallen. The seventh harbinger now speaks of impending judgment. The Tree of Hope, the symbol of America's resurgence…is dead."
"The keepers of the Tree of Hope did everything they could to save the withering tree. They even changed the soil in which it grew. But no matter what they did, the tree continued to wither away and die," said Cahn.
"Finally, in the spring of this year, the tree planted in the place of the fallen sycamore of Ground Zero, the symbol of a rising America, was uprooted. … The seventh harbinger is no more."
He had written in his book a prophetic word concerning America's Erez Tree, the Tree of Hope, saying, "…but when a nation such as this places its hope in its own powers to save itself, then its hope is false. Its true hope is found only in returning to God. Without that, the Tree of Hope is a harbinger of the day when its strong cedars come crashing down to the earth."
"In the Bible," said Cahn, "the felling of the cedar, or the destruction of the erez tree, is a particularly stark sign given to a nation nearing the day of its judgment. It is one of several continuing manifestations of what appears in 'The Harbinger' – coming true after the book's release. What these continuing signs signify is that America’s progression to judgment is continuing – if not accelerating. Combine this with the fact that America in indeed continuing on a rapidly accelerating course of apostasy from God and moral collapse – and it comprises an ominous warning: America is approaching a day of judgment." — Source
