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 HopeoftheWorld.org and on Jonathan Cahn Facebook.

As President Donald Trump ‘Rallies’ After COVID-19 Diagnosis, Author Stephen E. Strang Praises Him as a ‘Strong Leader During Unprecedented Times’

Author of ‘God, Trump, and COVID-19’ Weighs In on the Latest Developments; Election Is Just Three Weeks Away
 

ORLANDO, FLA.— No wonder so many people have affectionately called President Donald Trump the “Energizer Bunny” since his 2016 election. The president, who recently tested positive for the coronavirus, is not only back at the White House after his treatment for COVID-19—first at Walter Reed National Medical Center, then continuing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—he was ready to debate Democrat challenger Joe Biden in person again.

This week’s debate was scheduled for Oct. 15, but according to the New York Times, Oct. 22 is the official date of the next debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. The Commission on Presidential Debates wanted a virtual debate but the president rejected that idea, saying he would not participate unless the debate was restored to its original, in-person format. With the election just three weeks away, Trump is also geared up to restart the campaign rallies that are so popular with his supporters and that allow Trump to speak directly to Americans. Recently, the president’s doctor explained Trump had “completed his course of therapy” for COVID-19 and could move again into the public sphere.  

Stephen E. Strangfounder of Charisma Media and author of the compelling new book “God, Trump, and COVID-19,” declares that in an already dramatic election season, “all eyes have rightly been focused on the president’s health. Not only is the nation still praying for his and the first lady’s continued strong recovery, but the American people are thrilled to see him raring to go as usual. They want him to keep representing their interests and our country.”

Adds Strang, “This president is a hardworking, highly determined individual. He has survived every other attack, and now he’s survived an attack on his health. He’s showing the nation that this virus can be survived—and that we must not live in fear nor shut down the nation.”

Strang also says, “Trump is a strong leader during these unprecedented times. And it’s time for him to get out his message as the election approaches—the most important election of my lifetime.”

Importantly, Strang—who has written authoritatively about this president for years—also notes that Trump and those in the White House have been taking the coronavirus as seriously as they should, given what we know about this virus and its progression. But “the virus is not going to stop this president from working for the American people,” says Strang“He’s a true leader—and as such, he knows he has to be out in front.”

Stephen Strang’s newest book is “God, Trump, and COVID-19,”a dynamic follow-up to his earlier book, “God, Trump and the 2020 Election.” The new book, in addition to sharing important insider information about China and the virus, addresses a key question for Christians: “Where is God in all this?”

“God, Trump, and COVID-19” is published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach, and equip Christians. The book is available in hardcover, paperback and e-book formats at www.stevestrangbooks.com.

Stephen E. Strang is an award-winning journalist who founded Charisma magazine, the only national evangelical magazine to endorse President Donald Trump. He is also the bestselling author of “God and Donald Trump.”

Voted by Time magazine as one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America, Strang has interviewed four U.S. presidents—including President Trump—and has been featured on many media outlets, including Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, and CBN.

President Donald Trump Has an ‘Undeniable Faith’ in Our American Freedoms—and a Kentucky Teen Saw This Early On

Stephen Strang, Author of ‘God, Trump, and COVID-19,’ Strongly Backs Trump’s 2020 Reelection, as Does Nicholas Sandmann, the Pro-Life Advocate Just Hired by Sen. Mitch McConnell

ORLANDO, FLA.— At the Republican National Convention this year, young Nicholas Sandmann was among those who gave rousing remarks in defense of free speech, of life, and of President Donald Trump’s reelection. The Covington Catholic High School graduate called out the media for its “anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-Donald Trump” bias—and Sandmann himself, the victim of unfair bias last year during a pro-life event in Washington, D.C., sued major outlets for defamation (two cases have been settled so far, for undisclosed sums). 

Said Sandmann at the RNC, “Our president, Donald Trump, has distinguished himself as one of the most pro-life presidents in the history of our country.” The Kentucky teen stressed that we “must unite around a president who calls the media out” and “we must all embrace our First Amendment rights … This is worth fighting for. This is worth voting for. This is what Donald Trump stands for.”

Now, the campaign of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has hired Sandmann as a grassroots director to help the senator’s own reelection bid in November.

Stephen E. Strangfounder of Charisma Media and author of the compelling new book “God, Trump, and COVID-19,”  agrees with young Sandmann and strongly backs Trump’s 2020 reelection bid. “This election is so important for Christians and for people of all faiths,” says Strang. “He is a champion for our belief in God and for returning us to the foundation of our freedoms in this country. And he displays true leadership, authority, strength, and experience.”

Adds Strang, “Donald Trump believes America remains a great country even though we’ve drifted away from the clear vision of the Founders. He possesses an undeniable faith in America, and a big reason for that is his own lifelong faith in God.”

Yet if the Democrats wind up winning in November, Strang believes a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration “would stand for the removal of God from the public square and the erasure of our faith history.” In this election, Strang vows to do “all in my power to support President Donald Trump, someone who backs Americans of faith—and who displays true leadership, authority, strength, and experience.”

Under Trump’s guidance, the U.S. is climbing out of the clutches of the China virus. America’s borders are more secure, the military is strong, Americans’ religious freedom is intact—and the economy is steadily improving.

“Donald Trump is a leader, and at this point in American history we need a real leader who can get private enterprise and government—even the Democrats—to work together to take us through this crisis and find a vaccine for the deadly coronavirus,” Strang notes in his book “God, Trump, and COVID-19.”

Strang has been writing with authority and conviction about President Donald Trump for years. “God, Trump, and COVID-19”is a dynamic follow-up to Strang’s earlier book, “God, Trump and the 2020 Election.” The new book shares insider information about China and the virus—and conveys the high stakes of this 2020 presidential election.

It also addresses a key question for Christians: “Where is God in all this?”

“God, Trump, and COVID-19” is published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach, and equip Christians. The book is available in hardcover, paperback and e-book formats at www.stevestrangbooks.com.

Biden’s Startling Slight Against Christians—and Why Trump Will Triumph in November 2020

Stephen E. Strang, Author of ‘God, Trump, and COVID-19,’ Calls Out the Democrat Candidates for Their Blatant ‘Affront’ to Faithful Believers: ‘Shame on Them’

ORLANDO, FLA.—Stuck in his basement bunker, Democrat Joe Biden was already late and scrambling with his announcement last week of a pick for the VP slot on his ticket.

Then, when he finally announced his choice of the ultra-liberal Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)—Biden blew it badly.

“Shame on them,” says Stephen E. Strangnoted founder of Charisma Media and the author of the revealing new book “God, Trump, and COVID-19”. With one of the most important decisions any presidential candidate can make, Biden delivered “an affront to Christian believers in our country,” says Strang.

“Both Biden and Harris have crossed every red line that we as Christian believers have,” adds Strang. “Harris displayed her blatant anti-Christian bigotry for all the world to see when she publicly insulted the faith of then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh during his nomination hearing for the Supreme Court.

“Harris also opposed the Hobby Lobby case to try to overthrow the Religious Freedom Authorization Act, and she supported infanticide to allow the killing of a precious baby even after birth,” says Strang. “Plus, she supported the restoration of the Iran nuclear deal, which threatens Israel. And that is just the start.

“A Biden-Harris administration would stand for the removal of God from the public square and the erasure of our faith history,” asserts Strang. “Shame on them both for thinking they can get away with insulting the 80 percent of Americans for whom faith is the most important thing in our lives.”

In this year’s election, Strang says he will do “all in my power to support President Donald Trump, someone who backs Americans of faith—and who displays true leadership, authority, strength, and experience.”

The United States of America—led strongly by Trump for the past four years—is climbing out of the clutches of the China virus. Our borders are more secure than ever, our military is strong, our religious freedom is intact—and the country’s economic signs indicate new promise every week.

“Donald Trump is a leader, and at this point in American history we need a real leader who can get private enterprise and government—even the Democrats—to work together to take us through this crisis and find a vaccine for the deadly coronavirus,” Strang notes in his book “God, Trump, and COVID-19.” 

To protect America early on, “Trump decisively closed travel from China and Europe, even though liberals accused him of overreacting,” adds Strang. Biden, by contrast, would have left our borders open and exposed—and the Democrat made weak, desperate charges of “xenophobia” and “fear-mongering.” “Yet Trump’s decisions not only proved right,” notes Strang, “but may have been a determining factor as to why the United States did not see the kind of numbers of those infected with COVID-19 the original models were projecting.”

Strang has been writing authoritatively about President Donald Trump for years.

“God, Trump, and COVID-19”is a dynamic and cutting-edge follow-up to Strang’s earlier book, “God, Trump and the 2020 Election.” The new book shares insider information about China and the virus—and conveys the high stakes of this year’s presidential election.

It also answers an important question for faith-focused Christians: “Where is God in all this?”

“God, Trump, and COVID-19” is published by FrontLine, an imprint of Charisma House, which publishes books that challenge, encourage, teach, and equip Christians.

What Will Christians Do About November?

God, Trump, and the 2020 Election’ Author Stephen E. Strang Writes About the Urgency of Christians’ Actions on So Many Aspects of Culture

(Stephen E. Strang is an award-winning journalist, Charisma founder and author of the best-seller “God and Donald Trump.” This content was excerpted from his new book, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election.”)

By Stephen E. Strang

As the pause button is pressed on aspects of American life today, what does this mean for November’s election?

Regardless, it seems our nation has been divided into voting blocs, and Christians, especially Evangelicals, are an influential one. But our strength is in our numbers, and too many conservative Christians are tempted to disengage on Election Day. The fact is, whether liberal or conservative, not all Christians vote, and even conservative Christians who do go to the polls don’t always vote based on biblical principles.

Historian David Barton watches Christian voting trends with interest and says no one can know precisely what the actual numbers are; they are based only on generally identified percentages in the United States. There will be regions where these numbers will be higher or lower, but they all combine to form a national general picture.

  • The current U.S. population is 329.4 million.
  • The number of eligible voters (those at least 18 years old) is 255.7 million (which is 77.6% of the total population).
  • Professing Christians are 70.6% of the population, or 180.8 million eligible voters.
  • 33.1% of eligible voters are not registered to vote, including 59.8 million Christians.
  • 36% of professing Christians are considered Evangelical, so 21.5 million Evangelicals are unregistered.

Short story: about 59.8 million professing Christians are not registered to vote, of whom about 21.5 million are professing Evangelicals also not registered to vote. In my book, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election,” I discuss how both Republicans and Democrats are trying to get more people to register who they believe will vote for their candidates. If we are concerned, as I am, that people “vote biblically,” the situation becomes more complicated.

“Getting church people to register to vote will not necessarily result in improved candidates,” Barton said. For example, despite efforts to get Christians to register and vote in the 2016 presidential election, 57% of all first-time voters supported Hillary Clinton. “That is one of the highest levels of support she received from any group,” Barton said. “Thus, just because church people get registered to vote does not mean they will vote in a biblical or conservative manner.”

Barton points to statistics that show only a small percentage of Christians have a biblical worldview, a fraction read the Bible on a daily basis, and many American pastors are unwilling to preach on issues they deem too political. So if Christians are not taught to view current issues through a biblical worldview, we should not be surprised if they do not necessarily vote according to Christian values. Barton told me, however, Christians do get involved in political activities if their pastors are talking about what the Bible says about current moral and cultural issues.

Likewise, prayer network organizer, Pastor Frank Amedia, told me God is doing mighty things in the nation right now, but he believes the church must again become aware of the power of God. He tells the story of a well-known Korean pastor who visited the U.S. at the request of one of the biggest denominations. When the pastor came to America, he was disheartened at the lack of zeal for the Lord. Just before he left to return to Korea, he told the pastors who invited him that the American church has a form of godliness but no power.

“I think we need to be a voice calling the body of Christ to get hot, to get on fire and not to be complacent or live on the laurels of an election that was won a couple years ago when we’re losing so many battles day by day in the earth today,” Amedia said.

Charismatic prayer leader and Bible teacher Dutch Sheets believe there will be a revival around the world. Dutch believes this revival will be “like the Jesus movement of the late 1960s-70s, except on steroids.” He’s been traveling the country announcing that God is “birthing the future,” adding, “we’ve been having some of the most powerful, significant gatherings I have ever participated in. And it’s not because there is a great explosion of power; it’s because there is such incredible depth that has come to the remnant church—the praying church. In the past 25 years, millions have prayed and fasted, and we are seeing those prayers answered. It’s been encouraging.”

But at the same time, Dutch, like other leaders, is aware of the vitriolic hate and the attacks against Trump, which are exposing the Left for who they really are and what they really believe.

“I believe it’s all demonically motivated because I believe the powers of darkness are so angry to be seeing the momentum they had gained for the last 40 to 50 years being reversed,” Dutch said. “Because if America becomes weak and loses these markers and loses our strength, we can no longer be the basis for [spreading] the gospel around the world that we need to be. The awakening that’s coming in is going to impact America, but it’s going to be around the world.”

One of the most articulate spokesmen for Christian values is Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church of Dallas. He’s a regular on Lou Dobbs’ show on the Fox Business Network, and Dobbs asked him almost two years before the election to prognosticate on the political situation in this country.

“The Left has been doing everything they can to try to delegitimize this president since day one,” Jeffress said. “First it was the ‘collusion illusion.’ That hasn’t worked out. And now they created what I call the myth of the midterm massacre—this idea that somehow the GOP lost massive amounts because of Trump’s unpopularity. That is complete fiction. First of all, President Trump did not have the shellacking that Obama did in losing sixty House seats and six Senate seats. Instead he had minimal losses in the House and picked up three Senate seats.”

Let me pause to say I agree with Jeffress, and I believe the president came out ahead in the midterms because the senators from swing states who opposed him about Kavanaugh are gone. I can’t say that surprises me. The debacle surrounding Kavanaugh was one of the most despicable things in Congress I’ve ever seen.

Jeffress continued: “I’m going to make this prediction … that the House flipping and being under the leadership of Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi is going to give President Trump an even larger reelection majority win in 2020. This is all going to work for good … I believe there is great momentum and support behind this president because he’s focusing on results, and we are seeing those results every day of every week.”

Lou asked him who will win in 2020, and Jeffress answered loud and clear: “Donald J. Trump.”

What happens if Jeffress is wrong and Trump loses? What is at stake? Everything. That’s why people must pray. There’s an old axiom that says we need to pray as if everything depends upon God and act as if everything depends upon us—because it does! Never has this been truer than at this critical hour when our nation’s future hangs in the balance. Because we know this is a spiritual battle, prayer is absolutely critical in winning the fight. But it won’t mean much if you don’t vote. If any of the current Democratic presidential candidates wins the election this November, America as we know it is certain to pass away in our lifetime.

As Christian Americans, you and I have enjoyed the traditions of freedom and religious liberty that we’ve inherited from generations before us—values that have defined the United States from its inception. President Trump has vowed that under his watch, we will continue to reap these blessings in our nation. He has vowed that America will never become a socialist country. He has vowed that we will be a nation that believes in the power of prayer. And he has vowed that we will remain one nation under God.

As people of faith, we cannot stand by and allow these rights and privileges to be erased. We must stand up and be counted, casting votes that protect the values we hold most dear. It is the only way we will preserve those rights and freedoms for the generations that follow.

Is Donald Trump Foreshadowed in the Bible?

(Stephen E. Strang is an award-winning journalist, Charisma founder and author of the best-seller “God and Donald Trump.” This content was excerpted from his new book, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election.”)

By Stephen E. Strang

Evangelical Christians believe the Bible is God’s plan for mankind. But is it possible that ancient figures in Scripture foreshadow leaders of our own day—revealing what they do and when they rise and fall, even down to the exact timing of dates?

I can’t say for certain, but the evidence I gathered from Christian leaders while writing my new book, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election” may give us a peek into the spiritual dimension of what is happening in our day.

I was surprised when during the 2016 presidential campaign I began hearing comparisons between this political outsider named Donald Trump and Cyrus the ancient Persian king who, although never a true follower of the Hebrew God, declared that the Lord God of heaven charged him to build Him a house in Jerusalem—the temple. In other words, God used a pagan king to accomplish His purposes.

Can the same be said of Donald Trump? Did God raise him up as He did King Cyrus to accomplish His purposes?

I’ve been following politics for a long time. I still remember going with my dad to see Richard Nixon speak at a rally in Tampa, Florida, during his 1968 presidential campaign. Years later, I saw Jimmy Carter visit the newspaper where I worked in Orlando, and I was in the room when Reagan gave his famous “evil empire” speech at the National Association of Evangelicals conference in 1983. Yet in all the years I’ve been observing politics, I’ve never heard of any political candidates—Republican or Democratic—being compared to biblical figures. The one exception is Harry Truman, who referred to himself as Cyrus during a speech to a Jewish group after the United States recognized Israel as a sovereign nation. But since his election Donald Trump has been compared to several biblical figures, not only to Cyrus. Why?

To understand whether God has raised up President Trump, you must first believe in God. Then you must understand that He has ruled over all the earth since the beginning of time and that He reveals Himself to mankind in His holy Word, which we call the Bible.

In the Bible and its stories of ancient people, there are mysteries that help unlock an understanding of how God is working. Of course, this isn’t always easy to see. There’s a New Testament scripture that even says, “Now we see through a glass, darkly,” meaning we don’t always understand what we can’t clearly see. But as I saw more and more parallels between Trump and certain biblical figures, I began to see more clearly their significance.

It was helpful to me to hear other leaders use Cyrus, the pagan Persian king, as an example of how God raised up a nonbeliever to accomplish His plans and purposes in the Old Testament. One of those leaders was Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who likened the U.S. president to Cyrus in 2019 before meeting Trump in the Oval Office. In fact Netanyahu has made several statements associating Trump with King Cyrus.

Jonathan Cahn, the author of “The Harbinger,” also sees a connection. He said, “Trump’s proclamation concerning Jerusalem holds striking parallels to the decree of the Persian king Cyrus as recorded in the Bible.” He went on to explain that “each proclamation recognizes the right of the Jewish people to the land of Israel. The result of Cyrus’ decree was the rebuilding of Jerusalem after 70 years. The result of Trump’s decree was the inauguration of the American embassy in Jerusalem after 70 years of Israel’s existence—to the exact day.”

Cahn also sees significance in Trump becoming president at age 70. Many Christians perceive meaning in the pattern of the number 70 in Trump’s presidency that correlates to scriptural passages. In his latest book, “The Oracle,” Cahn explains that Donald Trump moved the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem exactly 70 years from when the Jewish state was formed. Seventy years was also the length of the Jewish exile foretold by Jeremiah, who wrote: “For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will … perform My good word toward you, and cause you to return.”

The prophecy was fulfilled when Cyrus became king of Persia exactly 70 years after the exile. And according to Cahn, the separation of the newborn Jewish state from Jerusalem and the world’s refusal to grant Israel legal recognition of its ancient capital was a type of exile ended by Trump. As I mentioned previously, President Harry Truman, who recognized Israel soon after its birth was announced in 1948, even referred to himself as Cyrus because he encouraged the Jewish diaspora to return home. Raised going to Sunday school, Truman knew the prophecies that the Jewish people would one day return to their homeland. So if Trump is also like Cyrus, the two Cyruses frame the 70 years of Israel’s existence.

In “The Oracle,” Cahn elaborates:

“And when [President Trump] issued that declaration, he made special mention of another president. He spoke of the other Cyrus, Harry Truman. And his declaration contained the phrase that would link the modern declaration to the ancient—the phrase 70 years. He said this: ‘It was 70 years ago that the United States, under President Truman, recognized the State of Israel.’ So the proclamation itself makes note that the proclamation is itself going forth at the end of a 70-year period.”

I’m proud to call Cahn a close friend and to also be his publisher. “The Harbinger” has been the best-selling book my company has ever published, and it has spawned other popular books, including “The Paradigm.” Here, Cahn found in the Old Testament comparisons between contemporary and ancient leaders, including between two couples: the wicked King Ahab and his pagan wife, Jezebel, and Bill and Hillary Clinton. In Christian prophetic circles, preachers like to use Jezebel to represent any evil, but never before “The Paradigm” had anyone shown the parallels between Ahab and Jezebel and Bill and Hillary Clinton in such a detailed way.

But Cahn does not stop there. He goes on to show parallels between Bible characters and other leaders, including Barack Obama. The Clintons and Obama won’t be running against Trump in 2020, so you might be asking yourself why this matters in a book about the upcoming election. It matters because the timing of each leader’s emergence on the national stage and his or her rise to prominence matches the parallels from Israel’s history that Cahn uncovers in his book.

And all of it leads up to Donald Trump.
