The vengeance of old; Jonathan Cahn’s latest bestseller, ‘The Return of the Gods,’ reveals ancient battle for the heart of America
NEW YORK — The ancient gods have returned and are wreaking havoc across America. After the rise of Christianity ousted them from their previous kingdoms, these ancient deities are seeking vengeance against those who cast them out — and it starts in America.
In his mind-blowing new book, “The Return of the Gods,” bestselling author Jonathan Cahn outlines how America’s turning away from God has opened the door to dark entities that are at work at this very moment, transforming the nation and Western civilization. Since the book’s release, “The Return of the Gods” hit No. 2 on the New York Times Bestsellers List — Cahn’s highest ranking ever — as well as No. 2 in the Hardcover Frontlist Nonfiction category on the Publishers Weekly bestsellers list, and No. 2 in nonfiction combined on the Wall Street Journal bestsellers list.
In the book, Cahn outlines how the Dark Trinity — three specific gods of old — have changed American culture and are working in all the chaos that is taking place, from initiating social upheavals and cultural revolutions to maneuvering politics and world events.
“As the gods had thrived in a pre-Christian age, they would now seek to usher in a post-Christian age,” writes Cahn. “And if the entrance of Christianity brought about the casting out of the gods from Western civilization, then upon their reentering, they would seek to bring about the casting out of Christianity from Western civilization.”
Cahn points out that these ancient gods could only return by casting out that by which they had themselves been cast out: the Spirit of God.
“As the gods had been driven out of the mainstream culture of the ancient world, they would now seek to drive God and those who followed Him out of the mainstream of modern culture,” Cahn writes. “As the gods had once been driven to the margins and shadows of their culture, they would now seek to drive Christians to the margins, to the shadows, to the closets and catacombs of modern culture.”
How would these ancient beings achieve this goal? “They would seek to gain control of the young,” Cahn writes. “And they would do so through the media, television, the internet, and the classroom. At the same time, the gods would attack the transmission of the Christian faith from parent to child and from teacher to student in Christian schools and universities. As they had once been cut off from influencing the young and cast out by a new generation, the gods would now seek to cut off the young from the Christian faith and to use the new generation to cast out the Christian faith and bring Judeo-Christian civilization to an end.”
But there is hope for those who stand strong in the Lord, according to Cahn. “All who are called by His name can take encouragement, heart, strength, hope, and courage to live unbowed in the face of the gods,” Cahn explains. “It is time to be strong and of good courage. It is time to be bold. It is time to let go of all fear and concern and to take a stand against the darkness and for the light.
“The darkness will end, but the light will be forever,” he concludes. “And so as it is written, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, for greater, much greater, is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”
“The Return of the Gods” promises to take readers on a fascinating, unforgettable, and mind-blowing journey that will leave them stunned and with the ability to see the world as they never have before.
With the release of “The Harbinger II: The Return” in September 2020, multitudes of new fans have embraced Jonathan Cahn’s compelling messages and prophecies, in addition to the millions that are already heeding the warnings and prophecies outlined in his previous books over the past decade.
The author has made multiple media appearances, including on CBN’s “700 Club,” TBN’s “Praise,” and “Family Talk” with Dr. James Dobson.
Cahn’s first book, “The Harbinger,” became an instant New York Times bestseller when it was published in 2012. 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, Cahn was named one of the top 40 spiritual leaders of the past 40 years who has radically impacted the world.
