In his highest-debuting and latest New York Times best-seller, The Paradigm: The Ancient Blueprint That Holds the Mystery of Our Times, (TheParadigmMystery.com),Jonathan Cahn unveils how modern-day politicians demonstrate alarmingly similar behaviors as leaders from the Bible, revealing that behind modern American leaders lies an ancient mystery.
"Each are following the paradigm of an ancient leader," Cahn says, "a corresponding prototype that explains their actions, their policies, even their personalities."
For example, in The Paradigm, Cahn writes about King Ahab, whom the Bible presents as a man divided. He was at the forefront of deepening apostasy in ancient Israel, leading a spiritual, cultural and political war against the nation's biblical faith and traditional values. Cahn identifies the characteristics of such a leader and reveals how these traits set the precedent for political figures in modern Western culture.
"The king will be a divided man," Cahn says. "On one hand, he will come from a culture founded on faith in God. On the other, he will embrace and champion a culture and an ethos that wars against the God of his heritage. ... He will be a man in conflict, compromised, complicated and divided."
Cahn emphasizes the impact that leaders have on a nation and how their actions carry great weight for both good and evil. Cahn extrapolates on Ahab as a leader, detailing how he oversaw the rise of a new pagan morality and presided over its enshrinement. By embracing Baal worship, Ahab allowed his people to transfer sexuality from the private realm of marriage to the public realm of the temple cult.
Furthermore, Baal-worship involved child sacrifices. Thus, under Ahab's reign, the government endorsed the killing of innocent children. Cahn reveals in his new book how the Bible uses this paradigm of the king to foretell a modern-day leader who would also allow the murder of children, along with other acts of ungodly morality.
"As it was with King Ahab, President Bill Clinton was especially connected to the blood of the innocent," Cahn said. "As it was in the reign of King Ahab, it was in Clinton's time in office that the state now became an active agent in the nation's apostasy."
In The Paradigm, Cahn points to how Bill Clinton signed a series of executive orders that enabled abortion in America and around the world. He also writes on Clinton's act of adultery in the White House, which not only separated sex from marriage, but also placed sexual sin on the ultimate public platform. Bolstered by these parallels, Cahn underscores King Ahab and President Clinton's overall moral ambiguity.
"Though Clinton was raised with a biblical foundation, he would embrace an ethos and morality that warred against biblical morality," Cahn says. "As was his prototype, King Ahab, Clinton was a man divided. ... He would sin against the ways of God and then express repentance and sorrow—just as Ahab did."
The Paradigm details how both these leaders, one from 3,000 years ago and the other in contemporary America, exhibited a weakness of will and morality. By drawing on these similarities and even incorporating shocking parallels between timelines, Cahn demonstrates how the paradigm can provide insight for future events.
The Paradigm highlights that ancient leaders even reveal or determine the time that the modern leader will have on the national and world stage," he added. "Bill Clinton entered the national stage in 1979 when he was elected governor of Arkansas for the first time. His time on that stage lasted until January 2001, the end of his presidency—a total of 22 years. When one opens the Bible to find his ancient prototype, Ahab, it is revealed that 'Ahab, son of Omri ... reigned in Samaria for a period of 22 years.' This parallel is not only true of Bill Clinton, but ancient prototypes also reveal the mystery of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Donald Trump.
"The Bible is the Word of God," Cahn concluded, "so much that its patterns, keys and templates reveal, illuminate and foretell, if not determine, even the events and details of the present day."
The Paradigm, which was released in September and debuted in the top five of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal book charts, reveals a newly uncovered master blueprint and ancient template that foretells many events of modern history. The Paradigm also removes the veil behind the leaders, governments, events and scandals of modern times. Its disclosures are so detailed and its revelations so precise that it even speaks of events before they happen.
Cahn, who caused a stir throughout America and the globe with the release of his instant New York Times best seller The Harbinger, which sold over 2 million copies, followed that earth-shattering work with The Mystery of the Shemitah and The Book of Mysteries also New York Times best-sellers. In fact, the mysteries of the immensely popular The Harbinger continue and are intertwined with the mysteries of The Paradigm.
