Harbinger Update - NY Governor Cuomo: "We don't just rebuild, we rebuild better"

Bookmark and Share
For those who are familiar with "The Harbinger" by messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn, there's been a repeat of a defiant "utterance" to 'rebuild better' that parallels the prophecy of Isaiah 9:10 which foretold the destruction of ancient Israel.

This time Superstorm Sandy, a name that means "defending men", flooded out the Ground Zero memorial (hint, hint?!), and in response New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, declared: "I believe we don't just rebuild, we rebuild better."

From Anderson Cooper's blog:
Tonight, for the first time since the storm, the lights on One World Trade will turn on and construction will begin again. "I believe we don't just rebuild, we rebuild better. And that's what this site is all about, and that's what New York is all about," says Cuomo.
Here's the report that aired on CNN last night:

Governor Cuomo made the same sort of remarks toward the end of the following ABC News interview with Diane Sawyer while surveying the storm's damage at Ground Zero:
"It was the magic of this site and what it stands for; this is a monument to New York resilience. We're gonna build back and we're gonna build back better, and we did on this site and we will once again."

Governor Cuomo's comments eerily parallel the inscription placed by President Obama on one of the steel beams  that was made a symbolic part the framework of the new One World Trade Center tower set to replace the Twin Towers:

Again, this all echoes the attitude of ancient Israel to God's judgment in yesteryear prior to the complete destruction of that nation by the Assyrians as spelled out in Isaiah 9:10:

"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."

Notably absent from Governor Cuomo's CNN and ABC interviews was discussion that God's wrath on America might be playing out for loving money and denying God - something symbolized by Ground Zero - such that we as a people are called upon to accept our Creator's role in the American story and plead forgiveness for turning away from Him if we are to truly rebuild on a firm foundation.

Here's my prior, related blogs on "The Harbinger":

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. [2 Chronicles 7:14]
