About "The Israel Omen"
The winds of a great storm build to a crescendo of power as its might approaches the coast of the United States. It will drive hundreds of thousands from their homes, many never to return. An earthquake of historical destructive power suddenly strikes from an unknown fault line in California, leaving in its wake the second most costly natural disaster in U.S. history. A flood, the like of which has not been seen for 500 years, ravages the Midwest United States, ruining crops and towns. Bizarre weather afflicts multitudes of people with hundreds of tornados striking in what is described as the "worst weather in U.S. history," immediately followed by a European heat wave described as the worst in the last 250 years. Terrorists successfully strike in another "day of infamy," and the entire financial structure of the world is shaken to its core as once mighty institutions begin to crumble. All of these terrible events would appear on the surface to be random acts of God. But, were they? The Israel Omen considers a series of historically destructive events since 1991, connected by a common thread: warnings found in ancient Hebrew writings. Are these events perhaps the telling signs of an ancient omen, the same omen ignored by Egypt some 3500 years ago resulting in the famous Biblical plagues? Did this omen return with the homecoming of the Jews to the Holy Land in 1948? As the nations of the world gather to remove the restored "Promised Land" from the Jews, the international group called the "Quartet" leading the effort eerily appears to be specifically mentioned in these ancient writings. Was the financial collapse that began in 2007 the beginning of a promised curse against the nations gathered to remove the restored "Promised Land?"
