Jonathan Cahn Answers the Question, ‘So a Pandemic Can Be a Judgment?’

NEW YORKAfter eight years of anticipation, the prophecies that captured the world’s attention in the New York Times Bestseller The Harbinger” are finally back—and more relevant to the coronavirus-infected United States and world than ever befo In“The Harbinger II: The Return,” set for release on September 1, author Jonathan Cahn unlocks ancient mysteries by interpreting contemporary calamities through the lens of history and biblical prophecy. For example, just because a natural or manmade disaster has an earthly cause doesn’t mean it isn’t divinely appointed.


“When judgment fell upon ancient Israel, it came through evil and brutal empires,” Cahn writes. “Behind the rise of those empires were a multitude of causes, political, military, social, cultural, economic, and countless others coalescing with another multitude of turns, quirks, and twists of human events. And yet at the same time, all those factors converged to fulfill the judgments foretold by the prophets. Why did the calamity come? For all those reasons at once.”


The Bible presents God’s judgment of a nation’s sin as affecting both the righteous and unrighteous. In such cases, many innocents lie among the casualties, as often happens in war—including the American Civil War.


“The calamity was not centered on the individual,” Cahn continues. “It was the judgment of a civilization. So too when Lincoln spoke of the Civil War as a judgment from God, he was not suggesting that any individual struck down in that war was being judged, but rather that a civilization was being judged for the sin of slavery.”


As COVID-19 now threatens the world, “The Harbinger II: The Return” anticipates the question, “So a pandemic can be a judgment?”


Yes—a pandemic with a multitude of earthly causes could also have a transcendent cause, such as God’s judgment, according to Cahn.


“It can be,” Cahn writes. “And if it is, there will be signs of it. The principle is revealed throughout the pages of the Bible where judgments can, at times, manifest in the form of pestilences and plagues. Though plagues would be seen then, as now, as evils and calamities, God used them for the purposes of redemption.”
