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. CONTINUE
