Jonathan Cahn Sheds Light on Mysterious Connection Between King Ahab and Our Modern Western Culture

by | Oct 20, 2017 | Culture

In his latest New York Times best-seller The Paradigm, Jonathan Cahn unveils how today’s politicians demonstrate alarmingly similar behaviors as leaders from the Bible.

Cahn writes on 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. 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 says.

He emphasizes the impact that leaders have on a nation and how their actions carry great weight for 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 then reveals 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 Clinton was especially connected to the blood of the innocent…. 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,” Cahn writes.

He 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. 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,” Cahn says.

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 Bible is the Word of God,” Cahn affirms, “So much that its patterns, keys and templates reveal, illuminate, foretell, if not determine even the events and details of the present day.”

In The Paradigm, Cahn uses these revelations to educate readers on the dangers of having leaders who rebel against God’s ways.

He expounds on how Clinton and Ahab had both “broken the ground and breached moral parameters that had never before been breached. And because of these breaches, the repercussions would be far-reaching, not only into the future but into other lands.”

The Paradigm refers to an ancient blueprint that reveals secrets to modern-day events. In his signature descriptive and precise writing, Cahn exposes shocking parallels between ancient Middle Eastern palaces and the White House, biblical leaders and today’s political figures, scandals from 3,000 years ago and the current controversies on American soil. The Paradigm was released on Sept. 19, 2017 and is published by Frontline, an imprint of Charisma House. Learn more at www.TheParadigmMystery.com.
