Jonathan Cahn of ‘The Harbinger II: The Return’: Is There a Cure for America’s Spiritual Disease?

Best-Selling Author and Prophetic Voice of a Generation Reveals a Mystery for Our Nation—and Why Jesus Is the Only Answer

NEW YORK — The 2021 New Year has begun far more dramatically than most people envisioned. As millions of Americans worry for our country after the lawlessness that occurred last week at the U.S. Capitol, best-selling author Jonathan Cahn, creator of one of 2020’s biggest publishing successes, “The Harbinger II: The Return,” poses vital concerns: Does America have a spiritual disease? And what is the cure?

He also shares, with equal conviction, that there are prophetic, biblical explanations for the “shakings” we’ve experienced—and calls attention to the mystery behind the withered tree at Ground Zero.

In his newest book“The Harbinger II: The Return,” Cahn reveals how the ancient mystery of the harbinger has continued to the present day. His book goes behind the pandemic, behind the current economic collapse, and behind the current disorder to reveal that there is far more to the story.

Cahn said of “The Harbinger II: The Return,”  “the mystery has never stopped. What I first shared back in ‘The Harbinger’ was the beginning—not the end. This sequel is about what could not be unlocked before. It’s about the mysteries that couldn’t be revealed until the present time, the manifestations that have taken place since that first book came out and up to the present, and the mysteries yet to come.”

In the new book, Cahn reveals more about the seventh harbinger—the erez tree—which was planted at Ground Zero several years after 9/11 to replace the sycamore tree that fell on that terrible day. He explains it was to fulfill the prophecy in Isaiah 9:10: “The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”

New York City leaders named the erez tree the “Tree of Hope.”

“The erez tree represented a strong America, coming back from the devastation of 9/11,” Cahn said. “But then a transformation took place, a biblical metamorphosis—which became a sign in itself. The ancient sign of national judgment was manifested at Ground Zero when the erez tree, the symbol of America, began to wither away.”

Cahn noted, “God speaks again and again of withering. He says, ‘For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb’ (Psalm 37:2). Isaiah says, ‘You will perish like a withered tree or a garden without water’ (1:30 TLB). Messiah spoke to the fig tree (Mark 11:21)—and it withered.”

“Withering is a sign of national judgment,” he continued. 

And it is why, Cahn says, he believes our nation “is withering from its very core. If it keeps doing that, it’s not going to be able to stand. The withering is happening from the inside—and eventually the tree won’t make it if it doesn’t get healed.” 

Cahn also emphasized, “We cannot cure a spiritual disease with a political cure or a physical cure. Only a spiritual answer can heal a spiritual disease. The only one who can cure it is Jesus.”

With the release of “The Harbinger II: The Return, on Sept. 1, 2020, thousands of new fans all around the world have embraced Jonathan Cahn’s messages and prophesies.
