‘The Return of the Gods’ hit New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Publishers Weekly bestsellers lists
October 17, 2022
NEW YORK— The inflation rate in America peaked at over 9% earlier this year, forcing many Americans to reexamine their personal finances and investments to make ends meet. As the country laments the loss of the previous financial freedom, New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Cahn has uncovered a deeper, darker mystery behind America’s economy.
On September 6, 2022, Jonathan Cahn’s latest groundbreaking book, “The Return of the Gods,” hit shelves across the world. Critics and fans alike are still reeling over the jaw-dropping revelations in the book. 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.
The book identifies three key ancient entities who previously have been the catalysts for some of the most prevalent unbiblical movements in America — the Dark Trinity. These same deities are the gods of old that ancient civilizations falsely worshipped and tempted Israel from the one true God. After many years lying dormant, the gods have returned — to the detriment of America.
The leader of the Dark Trinity is the Possessor. He was the god of fertility and prosperity, and his worshippers prayed to him to make fertile the soil and cause their crops to grow. As the lord of rains and fertility, he represented increase, gain, and profit. One of the Possessor’s preeminent symbols was the bull, which embodied his power and his connection to fertility. His idols often came in the form of a bull of metal or clay.
The lure of the Possessor has always been a present danger in American culture, Cahn writes. “For any nation so blessed with material prosperity as was America, there would always be the risk that its prosperity would become an idol and that it would turn to the god of increase and gain,” he says. “But with America’s departure from God in the late twentieth century, the spirit of the Possessor became ascendant.”
It was America’s financial realm, and Wall Street in particular, that epitomized the unadulterated pursuit of money. “The prosperity of the stock market had long been tied to the prosperity of America as a whole,” Cahn writes. “It was therefore striking that the symbol that embodied the prosperity of the stock market and America was the bull.” If the American stock market appeared to be heading toward increase, gain, and prosperity, it was called a bull market.
“The site of the materialization of the Possessor was the financial district of New York City, just outside the Stock Exchange on Wall Street,” Cahn says. “It appeared in December of 1989. It was massive, eleven feet tall and sixteen feet long. It weighed seventy-one hundred pounds. It was a molten image in the form of a bull — the sign of the Possessor.”
This massive bull was the American incarnation of the Possessor. It was the American version of the golden calf, the ancient biblical sign of a nation that had once known God and had fallen away, and that another god had mastered it.
With such clear signs of American apostasy, what should the Church of Christ do?
“The only way to live is by the power of God,” writes Cahn. “It is only by His power that one can stand against the gods. It is only by His love that one can overcome all hatred. Only by His grace can one overcome all sin. Only by His hand can one break the chains of all bondage. And only by His light can one overcome the darkness of the age. In days of darkness the light must not waver or weaken but must grow stronger. And if the dark grows darker still, then the light must shine all the more brightly into it. And those who will not give up will, in the end, prevail.”
While Cahn is known for revealing the stunning mysteries, many from ancient times that lie behind the events of modern times, “The Return of the Gods” takes the revelations to an entirely new level and dimension, and explains why laws are encroaching upon Christianity, its worship, churches and ministries in America today — and in the days to come.
“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.
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.
