Jonathan Cahn Reveals the 3,000‐Year‐Old Mystery That Holds the Secret to America's Future

Jonathan Cahn (Charisma News archives)
It was 2014 when Jonathan Cahn first released his book The Mystery of the Shemitah, the stunning follow-up to his blockbuster best-seller, The Harbinger, which shook the world. Readers around the globe learned that the Shemitah (shmee‐TA), or Sabbath year, is the seventh year of the seven‐year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah for the land of Israel.

They also learned that understanding this seven‐year pattern is essential for understanding the prophecy and mysteries of the Bible that are still applicable today.

But there was more.

In 2018, Cahn released an updated version of The Mystery of the Shemitah. This new version expands on the key revelations he shared in the original, and contains updated information with five new chapters that cast new light on the ongoing biblical patterns and cycles happening today. It is an absolutely riveting read.

How the Shemitah Applies Today

In the dynamic updated edition of The Mystery of the Shemitah, Cahn reveals new insight on current events such as:

  • How the Great Depression, and other economic events fit into the Shemitah

  • How the pattern of sevens predicted 9/11 to the exact hour

  • How the World Trade Center was conceived, started, finished, and destroyed in Shemitah years

  • How the rise—and possibly the fall—of America can be linked to the year of the Shemitah.

  • How stock market crashes in 2015 were linked to the period of nullification at the end of the Shemitah.

In this electrifying book, Cahn asks and answers the sobering question: could God be sending a warning to people and nations of the modern world, just as He did to people and nations in ancient times? The answer is a resounding yes.

He writes that the Bible reveals a clear pattern: before judgment, God warns. In the days of ancient Israel God sent warning of impending national judgment through varied means, through visions, through dreams, through audible voices, through prophetic utterances, through signs, through the written word, through prophetic acts, through supernatural occurrences, and through the outworking of natural events.

The Bible states that God does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We must therefore conclude that not only can God send a prophetic warning into the modern world, but also, where judgment is concerned, He will send warning. So in the case of a nation standing in danger of impending calamity or destruction, we can expect that such warning will be given, and in a way consistent with those given in biblical times.

Who Is Jonathan Cahn, and Why Should We Pay Heed to His Words?

So, should we listen to Jonathan Cahn about what's happening in today's world? You decide.

His explosive first book, The Harbinger, published in 2012, caused a worldwide stir and became an instant New York Times best seller. It outlined nine harbingers of warning that revealed an ancient mystery behind everything from 9/11, to the economy . . . from the housing boom, to the war in Iraq to the crisis on Wall Street. Everything in precise detail.

God used The Harbinger to send a prophetic message on which America's future hangs. All of his books since then, including his newest book, The Harbinger II: The Return, are biblically-based and have proven time and again that the mystery has never stopped—it is still coming to fulfillment today.

The Harbinger II: The Return stunned the publishing world, with unprecedented book sales in the first week that surpassed all of his previous books, and achieved a double-ranking on New York Times bestseller lists. The content of that remarkable book is fascinating and truly mind-blowing.

But long before he wrote any books, Cahn was 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 needy. He also leads the Jerusalem Center/Beth Israel, a worship center made up of Jews and Gentiles, people of all backgrounds, just outside New York City, in Wayne, New Jersey. He is a much sought‐after speaker and has been called the prophetic voice of our generation. He has spoken at the United Nations, on Capitol Hill and to millions of people around the world.

Cahn is revered as an expert by many religious leaders. World-famous TV personality Sid Roth, host of the It's Supernatural television show, says this: "Rabbi Jonathan Cahn is a Jewish prophet who has been chosen to reveal end-time mysteries—vital material to put the last-days puzzle together!"

And Roth is not the only person singing Cahn's praises. Founder and President of the Daystar Network, Marcus Lamb, says, "The Mystery of the Shemitah is a detailed, compelling and provocative book for anyone seeking answers to the future of America and the world."

Joseph Farah, founder of World Net Daily, adds, "The Mystery of the Shemitah is the most amazing thing I have ever read! Brilliant and stunning ... sobering ... humbling ... it is undeniable truth. It is one of the most important books of our lifetime!"

For biblically accurate, up-to-date revelation straight from the throne of God, you need look no further than Jonathan Cahn's books and videos.
