REVIEW: THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is a compelling documentary narrated by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn that shows the parallels between the fall of Israel and current events in the United States. This movie is in two parts, entitled The First and the Second Shaking.
In the first part, Rabbi Cahn goes through the nine harbingers or signs that God gave to Ancient Israel as reported in Isaiah 9. These signs were not intended to condemn Israel but to wake them up so they turned back to God and away from pagan self-centered behavior. Rabbi Cahn shows that America is in the same pagan condition today that Israel was.
The first sign was the breech in 732 B.C. of Israel’s walls by the vicious, mean-spirited, terrorist Assyrians. This breach is mirrored in 9/11. The second sign was terrorist attacks by the Assyrians on Israel, mirrored by the terrorist attacks on the U.S. today.
It’s worth watching The First Shaking, because each one of these nine signs is mirrored in events in the United States. For instance, a sycamore tree is uprooted literally on Ground Zero in New York City. It’s replaced literally by a cedar tree. Furthermore, there are three utterances by political leaders in Congress and the White House claiming that they will rebuild but ignoring the need to repent and turn back to God.
The movie’s second half, called The Second Shaking, links the nine harbingers with America’s financial collapse in September 2008. The collapse occurred seven years to the day of 9/11 and its follow-up. On Sept. 11, 2011, the terrorists struck down the World Trade Center. The following day, Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle overtly mentioned Isaiah 9:10 and, like the prideful leaders of Ancient Israel, declared that America “will rebuild.” The second half also links these modern day events to President George Washington’s inauguration in New York City in 1789, including his consecration of office, which took place right next to Ground Zero. The only way for America to remove these harbingers of its total destruction is to repent and turn back to God, says Rabbi Cahn.
The second half of THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is a little bit more repetitious than the first half. Even so, the information presented in both halves is extraordinary. Even better, both halves present Jesus Christ as the answer, which is quite incredible.
Documentaries are usually not as dramatic as feature films. The first half of this documentary is very dramatic. The second half could have been improved with some judicious editing. Even so, THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is well worth watching. It must be noted that the illustration of Rabbi Cahn’s points is excellent. The filmmakers should be strongly congratulated.

SUMMARY: THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is a compelling documentary narrated by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn that shows the parallels between the fall of Israel and current events in the United States. The events include 9/11 and America’s financial collapse seven years later exactly. THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is an important call for repentance and revival.
THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is a compelling documentary narrated by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. Based on Cahn’s book THE HARBINGER, it shows the parallels between the fall of Ancient Israel and current events in the United States. The documentary is divided into two parts called The First and Second Shaking. In the first part, Rabbi Cahn goes through the nine harbingers or signs that God gave to Ancient Israel as reported in Isaiah 9. These signs were not intended to condemn Israel but to wake them up so they turned back to God and away from self-centered pagan behavior. Rabbi Cahn shows America is in the same pagan condition today that Israel was. The second part links the nine harbingers to America’s financial collapse seven years after 9/11, in September 2008. It also links them to the founding of America and the first inauguration of President George Washington in New York City in 1789.
The second half of THE ISAIAH 9:10 JUDGMENT is slightly more repetitious than the first half, but the information presented in both halves is extraordinary. Even better, both halves present repentance and Jesus Christ as the answer.
