Jonathan Cahn’s Runaway Bestseller ‘The Harbinger II: The Return’ Dramatically Unmasks the Ancient Mystery Behind 2020’s ‘Year of Shakings’

With a Mere 15 Days to Go Before the Presidential Election, People Are Fretting: What Will Happen to America?

NEW YORK — When the year of 2020 kicked off, few people imagined what would befall us this year. Few foresaw a vicious virus that would keep Americans at home and close businesses, schools, churches, and synagogues; deaths that would provoke violent protests in our streets along with calls to “defund” our police departments; the passing of a Supreme Court justice and the selection of a potential new justice amid a contentious election season; and wildfires and hurricanes that would disrupt thousands in our nation.

Yet by closely studying the biblical template of the judgment of a nation, as well as prophecies, for clues, suggestions, hints, and intimations, Jonathan Cahn discovered that a dramatic series of events was in store for America this year. In an utterly compelling narrative, Cahn exposes these mysteries in his New York Times bestseller, “The Harbinger II: The Return.”

The book is a follow-up to Cahn’s “The Harbinger,” which first brought him sweeping acclaim. An excerpt from the new bestseller demonstrates why sales of Cahn’s latest book have beaten out sales of all of his previous books and earned “The Harbinger II”the double distinction of landing on the bestseller lists of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Cahn calls 2020 a year of “shakings.”

The “nation” that “stands in danger of judgment” is the one whose people “turned against the ways of God,” Cahn writes in his dramatic narrative. “God called them, sent prophets and messengers to warn and plead with them to come back. But they wouldn’t return; they wouldn’t listen. They hardened their hearts to the point where the only way to reach them was through a shaking.”

He also writes, “Seven years after 9/11 came the shaking of the American and world economy. But there isn’t to be only one shaking. There will come others, other calamities, greater than the first. When we first spoke of these things, you asked me what form the shakings and calamities would take.”

Now that the “shakings” are happening in front of our very eyes, the question on the lips of many Americans is this: “How much time is left for us?” “The Harbinger II” provides prophetic, biblical answers.

“It was nineteen years [in ancient Israel] after Babylon’s first invasion of the land that the judgment fell … nineteen years after the initial invasion of the land that destruction came. Nineteen years … the time span of judgment,” Cahn writes in “The Harbinger II: The Return.”

“Nineteen years from 9/11, from 2001, the first shaking, comes out to 2020, the year of shaking, the year that the plague came to America, the year of the coronavirus … the year of disorder, of collapse, the year of greater shakings,” Cahn continues ominously.

Since its release on Sept. 1, 2020, “The Harbinger II” has dominated major bestsellers lists and brought Cahn many thousands of new fans and followers. His book is available for purchase online and everywhere.

Cahn shares a revealing insight into his latest narrative that occurred many months before its release: “I spoke to Beth Israel, the congregation I lead in Wayne, New Jersey, and told them of 2020 being a year of shakings, dark events, and the Lord’s roaring—and that we were to prepare and pray for revival as never before, as it would be the only hope.”

The numbers connected to this new book tell their own dramatic story. “The Harbinger II” made the Amazon Bestsellers Top Ten lists of all books in the world and garnered three of the top ten spots on Amazon’s Christian Books for print, Kindle, and audio—each charting as a Top Ten Bestseller, including #1 Christian Prophecy and #1 Christian Prophecies. It also put Cahn’s other books back onto bestseller lists, including “The Oracle,” “The Paradigm,” and “The Harbinger.” Half of the top ten Christian prophecies were Cahn’s books.

The author has made multiple media appearances, including on CBN’s “700 Club,” TBN’s “Praise,” and “Family Talk” with Dr. James Dobson. Cahn is continuing to do TV and radio interviews throughout the fall.

Jonathan Cahn’s first book, “The Harbinger,” became an instant New York Times bestseller when it was published in 2012 and brought him national and international acclaim. His next four books were also New York Times bestsellers: “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” “The Book of Mysteries,” “The Paradigm,” and “The Oracle.” Along with Billy Graham and Keith Greene, Cahn was named one of the top 40 spiritual leaders of the past 40 years who has radically impacted the world.

Called the prophetic voice of this generation, Cahn has spoken on Capitol Hill, at the United Nations, and to millions of people around the world. Cahn is known for opening the deep mysteries of Scripture and bringing forth messages of prophetic import. He leads Hope of the World ministry, an international outreach of teaching, evangelism, and compassion projects for the world’s neediest. He also leads the Jerusalem Center/Beth Israel, a worship center made up of Jews and Gentiles, and people of all backgrounds, just outside New York City in Wayne, New Jersey. His ministry can be contacted at and on Jonathan Cahn Facebook.
