‘Isaiah 9:10 Judgment’ still on top of the sales charts
WASHINGTON – “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” a two-hour documentary released last March that illustrates the striking parallels between ancient Israel’s fall and the decline of America since 9/11 – remains the No. 1 faith movie in the country for an unprecedented 40 weeks.
It has also been ranked near the top 10 of all documentaries in that time period.
Producer Joseph Farah said he is immensely pleased with the performance of the movie, which is a documentary treatment of the message found in the best-selling book “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn, which has been on the top-10 New York Times list every week since last year when it was released in January.
“We put our money into the production of what we saw as a very worthwhile movie and couldn’t budget any more for marketing – but this film appears to be marketing itself,” he said.
In January, “The Harbinger,” by Cahn, a messianic rabbi from New Jersey, exploded onto the publishing scene, immediately becoming a surprise New York Times bestseller, already read by hundreds of thousands nationwide.
One week after “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” was released last March it rocketed to the No. 1 position, only dropping down to as low as No. 3 for a brief time during the Christmas season, replaced by movies about the birth of Jesus.
“A number of years ago, as I was standing at the edge of Ground Zero in New York City, I came across the first puzzle piece of an ancient biblical mystery and a prophetic message known as ‘The Harbinger’ that concerns the future of America,” explains Cahn, who helped write the two-hour documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment” and narrates it.
Cahn says he has found nine harbingers that tie the problems America has experienced beginning Sept. 11, 2001, with parallels that led to the destruction of ancient Israel.
