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.
