Jonathan Cahn, Author of ‘The Harbinger II: The Return,’ Urges Prayer for America to Save Our Nation

Best-Selling Author Reveals the Biblical Prophecy of Past Calamities—and the Key for America in these Critical Times

NEW YORK — In the final days of ancient Israel, ominous signs of judgment appeared—and that’s exactly what’s happening right now in America in 2020, explains Jonathan Cahn, who is known around the world as the author of one of this year’s most dramatic publishing successes, “The Harbinger II: The Return.”


Cahn, in his eye-opening “The Harbinger II: The Return,” reveals in vivid detail the prophetic, biblical explanations for America’s coming “judgment.”


In the U.S. this year, Cahn says, “We’ve been replaying the ancient biblical mystery of judgment. And ever since ‘The Harbinger’ came out, the mystery has only increased, the template has continued, and America now stands in much greater danger in the years since that time.”


One of the danger signs of a nation heading to judgement is division. America is more divided now than at any other time since the Civil War. And it is in this parallel that Cahn reveals his answer.


Adds Cahn, “In his second Inaugural Address, Lincoln said the Civil War was the judgment of God on the nation’s sin of slavery. In the same way, our nation is facing judgment today because of the sin of abortion and the blood of children. Lincoln was talking about the blood of slavery.”


Cahn then shares the “stunning turning point” that occurred in 1863: “The North was losing badly, to the point that there was a danger of letting go of the South. But at that moment in Washington, there was a stirring,” says Cahn. “On April 30, Lincoln declared a National Day of Prayer. The proclamation ended in the hope of three blessings: that the nation’s prayers would be ‘heard on high,’ that God would grant ‘the pardon of our national sins,’ and that there would begin a ‘restoration of our now divided and suffering country.’”


In a recent interview with Shannon Scholten on “Voice of Truth,” Cahn noted that “those were the exact three blessings” as promised in Scripture: “‘If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land,’” said Cahn, citing 2 Chronicles 7:14. “In the darkest days of that war, Lincoln called the nation to prayer and repentance before God, based on 2 Chronicles 7:14.”


Everything changed after that, beginning on May 1, 1863, explained Cahn, just one day after Lincoln’s National Day of Prayer—and “America as we know it would not exist today if not for that day of prayer. Think of the ramifications. America wouldn’t have existed to stop Hitler, or stop communism, or many other things. It all began with the prayers of God’s people.”


And it is why, he urges, “We need to pray and repent, now more than ever,” in order to save our nation.


With the release of “The Harbinger II: The Return, on Sept. 1, 2020, thousands of new fans from all over the globe have embraced Jonathan Cahn’s messages and prophesies. The book, available for purchase online and everywhere, made the Amazon Bestsellers Top Ten lists of all books in the world and took 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. “The Harbinger II” also catapulted Cahn’s earlier books back onto bestseller lists, including “The Oracle,” “The Paradigm,” and “The Harbinger.”


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 this fall.


Jonathan 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 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 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, outside New York City in Wayne, New Jersey. His ministry can be contacted at HopeoftheWorld.org and on Jonathan Cahn Facebook.

Responding to ongoing election conflict: Three biblical steps to our “upward call”

  • My father’s decision to serve his country
  • Was the election rigged?
  • The “lesser goal” we must beware

My father died on this day in 1979.

When America became involved in World War II, he enlisted in the US Army. Because he could type, he was made a radio operator and stationed with three hundred other soldiers on an island in the South Pacific. Only seventeen survived.

My father gave up his aspirations for a medical career to serve his country. While stationed on that island, he contracted a skin disease that he battled for the rest of his life. He suffered a massive heart attack in his early thirties and died of a second heart attack at the age of fifty-five. I have long wondered if the horrific stress of his wartime service contributed to his health issues.

Yet my father never complained about what he had suffered for our country. Not once. He was proud to be an American and proud to have defended his nation. He considered ours to be the greatest country on earth, one worthy of his sacrifice and, if necessary, his life.

I wanted to begin today’s article with this tribute to my father for two reasons. One is to express publicly my profound admiration for his patriotism and sacrifice. The second is to seek to emulate his love for our country in responding to the current state of our nation.

Closing a state capitol

When the Electoral College met in Michigan yesterday, the state House and Senate office buildings were closed due to security concerns. The state Capitol was also closed to the public.

Violence erupted Saturday evening in Washington, DC, following clashes between Trump supporters and counter-protesters. Eight police officers were injured and four people were stabbed.

That same evening, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson was about to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas with her four-year-old son when a crowd of “Stop the Steal” protesters with American flags and guns gathered around her home. They stood outside accusing her of ignoring widespread voter fraud until they were dispersed by police.

The news brought to mind a call two years ago by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters for her supporters to publicly harass members of the Trump administration “in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station.”

Was the election rigged?

As I’m sure you know, the Electoral College certified Joe Biden’s election yesterday. But this is not the end of the story.

Unsurprisingly, 100 percent of those who voted for Joe Biden in the November election said in a recent poll that he was the legitimate winner; only 2 percent said President Trump should continue to contest the election. By contrast, 82 percent of those who voted for President Trump said that they do not consider Mr. Biden’s election to be legitimate; 79 percent said the election should continue to be contested.

To that end, an effort is underway to challenge the election results on January 6 when Congress convenes to officially tally the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden as the president-elect.

As I noted last week, 68 percent of Republicans and 28 percent of all Americans said they were concerned that the election was “rigged” for Joe Biden. Regardless of whether this in fact occurred or would even be possible, note this fact: a large percentage of our country believes that Mr. Biden, or at least his supporters, would have done so if they could.

Similarly, even after a report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia in the 2016 election, 48 percent of respondents to a Reuters/Ipsos poll said they believed “Trump or someone from his campaign worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election.” Whether he did or could have done so, they clearly believe the president, or at least his supporters, would have acted in this way if possible.

As another indication of our political gap, 97 percent of Biden voters said the mainstream media reported the election results accurately; 86 percent of Trump voters said it reported the results inaccurately.

What keeps us from our goal?

In a culture plagued with such partisan divides and distrust, is there a way forward? Let’s consider three biblical imperatives.

First, concerns regarding voter fraud should be investigated. A constitutional republic depends on the credibility of its voting systems. With all the technological and cultural changes of recent years, it is understandable that a system as old as ours should be examined occasionally and made as efficient as possible. This should not be a partisan issue—all Americans should want an electoral process that all Americans can trust.

The Bible calls us to “seek justice, correct oppression” (Isaiah 1:17). God testifies, “I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong” (Isaiah 61:8). It seems to me that a bipartisan, unbiased study of our electoral system is an appropriate response to the recent election.

We should ask of our political engagement: Is this just for all?

Second, in our political engagement we are to “speak the truth to one another” (Zechariah 8:16; cf. Ephesians 4:25). After praying for God to “lead [us] in your truth” (Psalm 25:5), we measure our opinions and those of others by biblical revelation, reason, and accountability to the community of faith.

We should ask of our political engagement: Are we “speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15)? 

Third, in all we say and do, we should seek to honor our Father and draw others to him. Scripture is clear: “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). Jesus said we would “be” his witnesses (Acts 1:8), a calling that encompasses our private and public lives.

We should ask of our political engagement: Will this honor Jesus and lead others to him? 

The writer Robert Brault noted, “We are kept from our goal, not by obstacles but by a clear path to a lesser goal.” By contrast, Paul testified, “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).
