America is in turmoil. As the country sorts through the 2022 midterm elections, many Americans perceive even more unrest as a radical, "progressive" agenda is overtaking American culture. As society becomes disgracefully saturated with unbiblical ideologies, many Christians are asking how this downward spiral began. How did America become so broken?

Bestselling author Jonathan Cahn's latest book, "The Return of the Gods," outlines America's turning away from God and identifies the dark entities that are at work at this very moment to transform the nation and Western civilization. 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.

In the book, Cahn reveals that the gods that have come into the modern world have transformed America from a Christian nation to a pagan one, and are the same evil gods that were part of the apostacy and falling away of ancient Israel. The Bible reveals that behind these gods were entities known in Hebrew as the shedim or spirits, and in the New Testament as the daimonian, the root of the English word "demon."

"The gods of old now dwell among us," Cahn writes. "They inhabit our institutions, walk the halls of our governments, cast votes in our legislatures, guide our corporations, gaze out from our skyscrapers, perform on our stages and teach in our universities. They saturate our media, direct our news cycles, inspire our entertainments and give voices to our songs. They incite new movements and ideologies and convert others to their ends. They instruct our children and initiate them into their ways. They incite the multitudes. They drive otherwise rational people into irrationality and some into frenzies, just as they had done in ancient times. They demand our worship, our veneration, our submission and our sacrifices."

Cahn warns that these gods never die; it was the entrance of Christianity over 2,000 years ago that overcame their reign of terror and sent them into exile. It was the message of the gospel, of God's love and forgiveness, that caused the polytheism and pantheism of the Greco-Roman world to give way to the belief in one God, and activated the spell of the gods to be broken.

America's continual denial of God opens the door for these malevolent entities to return. The signs are everywhere—part of an ancient mystery that Cahn clearly outlines in "The Return of the Gods." In "The Return of the Gods," Cahn begins to identify these ancient gods and how America opened the door to their return. He outlines the timing of events that gave birth to the LGBTQ movement; how the use of the rainbow goes back to the tablets of ancient Babylon and how it contains a specific mystery that will surprise and shock readers; how the mysteries have even determined the rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court and the exact dates the rulings had to be handed down.

"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. His ministry can be contacted at HopeoftheWorld.org and on his Facebook.
