Jonathan Cahn: The Gods Have Returned
Reading time: 6 minutes, 37 seconds
Is it possible that behind what is currently happening in America and around the world lies a mystery hidden in the inscriptions of ancient Mesopotamia?
Could the ancient entities known to the nations as “gods” be more than fiction and myth, and actually possess an independent reality?
Is it possible that these gods have returned to our world and are behind what is happening in our culture today?
These chilling questions and more are examined in Jonathan Cahn’s latest bestseller, “Return of the Gods,” published by Charisma Media in September 2022.
In what people are calling his most explosive book of all time, Cahn reveals a mind-boggling mystery behind the changes now sweeping America and the West – how ancient gods, spirits or entities are now at work in our culture, initiating social and cultural upheaval. revolutions, embodying our politics and transforming our world – and even our lives.
“Return of the Gods” opens up the meaning and significance of it all, explaining what it will lead to and what we need to know and do in light of it.
gods in exile
According to Cahn, these gods or entities transform America from a Christian nation into a pagan nation. In the Hebrew Scriptures, the entities were called the Shedim. In the New Testament they are called the daimonia.
Cahn warns that these gods never die. It was the entry of Christianity over two thousand years ago that defeated their reign of terror and sent them into exile. It was the message of the gospel, of God’s love and forgiveness, that made the polytheism and pantheism of the Greco-Roman world give way to belief in one God, breaking the spell of the gods.
But Cahn reveals how America’s turning away from God opened the door for the return of the gods. To discover the keys to this return, Cahn opens an ancient parable given by Jesus concerning the departure and the return of the spirits:
“When an unclean spirit comes out of a man, he walks through arid places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house where I came from. And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept and tidied up. So he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of this man is worse than the first. this wicked generation” (Matthew 12:43-45, NKJV).
Cahn warns that when we apply this parable to the modern world, it reveals an ominous warning: “If ever this civilization should turn away from God, from His Word, from the gospel, from Christianity, from Jesus, then what drove the the spirits will no longer be present to protect him against their return. And the civilization that was delivered from the spirits will be taken over by them.
If the gods have returned, then what gods? Cahn cites three in particular from ancient times that are at work right now to transform America and Western civilization.
The first god of the dark trinity was known as the Possessor. Thousands of years ago this god made war on the God of Israel. In the middle of the 20th century, this god set out to transform America from a Christian nation into a pagan nation. Signs and symptoms of this metamorphosis can be seen in all aspects of our culture today.
The second god was the Enchantress. She was the goddess of sexuality and sexual immorality. With the return of this ancient goddess, Cahn says we would expect a revolution to take place in the realm of sexuality – and that’s exactly what happened in the 60s. Pornography was also born with this goddess. In mythology, she fights against male authority, and we see this happening in our culture of radical feminism. She was also a spellcaster, so with a sexual revolution we saw a revival in the practice of the occult.
Cahn identifies the third god of the dark trinity as the Destroyer. He was the god of human sacrifices, and in particular child sacrifices. The Destroyer is behind the murder of children in legalized abortion. “Human sacrifice, and in particular child sacrifice, was one of the most common practices of pagan civilization,” Cahn explains. “As America and the West turned away from God and Christianity, they began to embrace the ancient pagan practice of child sacrifice and offered millions in abortions.”
Identifying these ancient gods and how America opened the door to their return is just the beginning of the mysteries Cahn reveals in “Return of the Gods.”.” It describes everything from the timing of current events to how the mysteries even determined the rulings of the United States Supreme Court and the exact dates when the rulings were due.
where is it all going
Cahn’s purpose in writing “Return of the Gods” is to expose darkness, break down walls and barriers, free captives, and bring revival and redemption for a time like this.
How does Cahn advise us to live in a time when the civilization around us has become a house of spirits? How can we stand against the gods?
“We cannot oppose the gods and serve them at the same time,” says Cahn. “We must remember – what we serve most, dwell on most, rejoice most in, and live for most – that is our god. And if we serve one of the gods, we cannot oppose them. We must renounce all gods and any hold they have on our lives.
We might ask ourselves, “If we are surrounded by these gods in our culture, and even our leaders are ruled by them, how are we doing? Cahn points out that there is only one power strong enough to resist them; there is only one antidote. “The only answer to the gods is God,” he says. “The powers of the gods can only be defeated by the power of God.”
Cahn continues: “The answer is even more specific. When the pagan world was freed from its bondage to the gods, it was freed by a specific name, the name of Yeshua, Jesus,” he says. “In Hebrew, it means ‘the Lord is salvation.’ For the pagan world, this meant that there was only one God and only one who could really bring freedom and bring redemption.
Cahn reminds us that the gospel message that came to the Gentile world was that through the death of Jesus of Nazareth there is forgiveness for sin – every sin – redemption for every life, and an end to all separation. from with God. And by his resurrection from death there is restoration of all brokenness, removal of all curses, and eternal life to all who will receive it.
“There is no life so far from God that his mercy cannot reach it,” says Cahn. “There is no sin anyone has committed that is so great that his forgiveness is not greater; no bondage, no dependence, no chain so strong that she could resist his power to break her; no past so stained, so full of guilt and shame, that His power to redeem it is not greater; and no darkness so dark that his love is not yet deeper. Her arms are still open and her love is calling her. Just say yes to receive it, to receive it.
Offering hope to all, Cahn writes that it’s as simple as opening your heart and life to God’s love – giving your sins and burdens to Him, receiving Him into your life, and letting go. his presence enter your heart.
“It’s letting His light in the darkness, His forgiveness, His cleansing, His Word, His peace, His Spirit in every part of your life,” Cahn says, “to turn from all darkness, from all sin, from all idols and of all gods; put your faith in Yeshua, Jesus, as your Lord and Saviour, and begin to follow Him as His disciple all the days of your life. It is as simple as making the one who is the only Lord the true Lord of your life, and of him who is the only true God the true God of your life.
