American Family Association: ‘May God Have Mercy on Our Nation’
Nation Desperate for a ‘Spiritual Awakening’ Amidst Threats of Armed Protests Ahead of Inauguration Day
TUPELO, Miss.— With Inauguration Day approaching on January 20th, there have been major concerns about national security in Washington D.C., and even in state capitals due to violence. President Trump released a video after the impeachment vote, condemning all the violence. The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement, saying “Now is the time to come together as one nation, united in the peaceful pursuit of our common democratic purpose.” In addition, National Guard troops in and around the US Capitol in D.C. will be armed beyond the protective gear they have been carrying; and the Secret Service has been organizing this massive effort to protect the city of D.C. between now and Inauguration Day.
“Our nation is clearly in deep trouble,” said Ed Vitagliano, executive vice president of the American Family Association (AFA, www.AFA.net). “As we saw during 2020, some of our largest cities were beset by peaceful protests as well as mindless, opportunistic violence and the destruction of property.
“The same appears to have happened at the United States Capitol. Many people are very, very angry, not only about politics, but even worse, with each other. But lawlessness from either end of the political spectrum is not the answer. Jesus warned that in times of lawlessness, people’s hearts grow cold (Matthew 24:12). Right now, the only thing that will soften people’s hearts is the Gospel.
“We encourage Christians to reach out to their neighbors with the hope found in Jesus Christ. We are in desperate need of a spiritual awakening. One of our nation’s mottos, E pluribus unum, means ‘Out of many, one.’ If we do not turn our hearts to God, the opposite will happen: the one will be torn into many. May God have mercy on our nation.”

Jonathan Cahn of ‘The Harbinger II: The Return’ Asks: ‘Has America Passed the Point of No Return?’
Noted Author of Prophetic Narratives Warns of a Coming Judgment for the U.S.A.
NEW YORK — Jonathan Cahn is known the world over for his latest book, “The Harbinger II: The Return as well as for his previous narratives of biblical prophecy and power—several of which are right now appearing simultaneously on the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) Bestsellers list, as well as on other prominent bestseller lists.
Cahn is greatly concerned for the future of our country. In his original “The Harbinger,” he posed the ominous question: Is America heading to judgment at a time of great “shakings”—and what lies ahead? Now, his sequel, “The Harbinger II: The Return provides prophetic, biblical answers to these and other worries at a time when Americans—exhausted by the COVID pandemic, pulled apart by political disagreement, and struggling to emerge from economic hardship—seek, above all, safety, security, and stability.
Cahn originally wrote about the ancient template of national judgment that appeared in biblical times before the destruction of a nation. “In the last days of ancient Israel,” he says, “nine harbingers of warning—prophetic signs—appeared in the land. They were warning of judgment and destruction to come.”
Adds Cahn ominously, “Now, those same nine harbingers have appeared on American soil.”
As revealed in the original “The Harbinger,” the first sign of warning was that the nation’s hedge of protection would be lifted—and an enemy would strike the land. That terrible wake-up call occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. The book goes on to reveal all nine harbingers that occurred after that.
But those didn’t signal an end to the mystery. Instead, the signs indicated that the template of judgment was just beginning. “The Harbinger II: The Return unveils many more secrets, revealing the mystery still continues.
Says Cahn, “According to the template, what happens next is that a nation under judgment is given a window of time to turn back—a period of grace and relief—to come back to God for revival. But if it continues to defy God, then it is headed to judgment. Since 9/11, America has departed even more from God and warred against Him. And that’s exactly what ancient Israel did. It’s following the same template.”
Cahn adds with urgency, “The ‘shakings’ I refer to may include economic disintegration—we’ve been experiencing that. Disorder—it’s happening now. Military defeat—not yet but wait. The division of the nation, the collapse of infrastructure, calamities that are both manmade and from nature—these are all happening now.”
This is why, Cahn points out, so many Americans are asking: “How much time is left for us? Or are we past the point of no return?” His compelling new book shares the prophetic answers.
With the release of “The Harbinger II: The Return” in September 2020, thousands of new fans have embraced Jonathan Cahn’s compelling messages and prophesies. His new 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.
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.
