Book review by Terry James

By happenstance (is there any such word in God’s vocabulary?), I was sipping my coffee at a very early hour recently when my good friend Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s voice caught my ear. (I’m blind, as many know, so I get my TV through the ear gate rather than the eye gate these days.)

Jonathan was talking to the program’s host about his newest book, THE RETURN OF THE GODS. He was saying something to the effect: “I was absolutely blown away…”

Jonathan is, I believe, often given special insight by the Holy Spirit. Not that he is given new revelation in the sense of that given to prophets in the Old and New Testaments, but like insights given believers who are spiritually attuned in a special way.

So when I heard him say that he was “blown away” by something in the book being discussed, my own spiritual senses became fully engaged. I have kept up with my friend’s many efforts to bring God’s truth to this generation during these times so near Christ’s return. Everything he has written since THE HARBINGER has, I believe, been something especially commissioned by the Lord for these times.

His book, THE RETURN OF THE GODS, is no exception. As a matter of fact, after listening to that program and hearing Jonathan’s dissection of what is going on, it validated in my spirit what I sensed I was given to write a few days earlier. The article I wrote for my personal blog,, is “The Second Greatest Prophetic Signal”.

Here is what I wrote, in part, for that article posted August 15, 2022.

“Most every Bible prophecy student is fairly certain that the number-one signal of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline is centered within the modern nation of Israel. There can be no ending to this great, eternal drama if God’s chosen nation isn’t a major actor within the scenes to unfold as the play reaches its climax…

“So, to the true prophecy student, there is no doubt. Israel is the number-one signal of where things stand when the Tribulation closes in and the triumphant return of Jesus Christ nears…

“As history will attest, most every civilization that has been on earth has perpetrated the worse kind of perverseness and wickedness against children in its final throes of its existence. Even in the case of Israel, we know they made their little ones to pass through the white-hot hands of the idol Moloch. The Greek and Roman Empires each had the grossest forms of pedophilia, even within the top levels of government, in days leading up to their demise.

“Today, the murder of millions of babies in their mothers’ wombs makes our time like those days when the idol-god Moloch was used to burn children alive.

We would appreciate your donation.

“All of the other things mentioned above–the signals we have discussed in this forum over the years—now seem to have at this advanced date of the age coalesced. The luciferically-spawned wickedness has brought the world to the point of totally depraved activity against children…

“Like in the days of Noah, the minds of men are almost always on evil continually. There seems nothing left to be done by Heaven’s governance than to institute God’s judgment and wrath.

“So I believe a case can be made that this worldwide movement to inflict Satan’s murderous intentions upon the most helpless among humankind–the children—constitutes the second greatest signal of how near is the Tribulation and God’s wrath.

THE RETURN OF THE GODS by Jonathan Cahn is a stunning, spiritual eye-opener to be sure! The author, through research for which he has a special gift, leads the reader in a breakdown expose’ of the insane evil we have been enduring lately. He informs in stark terms how the demonic wickedness of antiquity is as relevant, as contemporary, as our hourly news cycles.”

Here are some of Jonathan Cahn’s thoughts as he contemplated the release of his thought-provoking book.

“What I am about to release will be the most explosive book I have ever written—it is called The Return of the Gods. It is so explosive that I have no idea what will happen when it goes forth.  But we must speak the truth regardless–and let the chips fall where they fall.

The Mystery 

  • The mystery that The Return of the Gods will open will be of an entirely other dimension, one in which lies virtually everything now taking place in our culture. 
  • Is it possible that behind what is happening to America and the world lies a mystery hidden in inscriptions of ancient Mesopotamia?
  • Could the ancient entities known to the nations as the “gods” be more than just fiction and myth – but actually possess an independent reality?
  • Is it possible that they have returned to our world?  Could these entities lie behind what we see on our television screens and computer monitors, what our children are being taught in their classrooms, current events, news, and the movements of our times—behind what is even now influencing our lives without our realizing it?   Could this mystery be the explanation behind all the strange transformations happening to our culture in our own day?
  • Is it possible that one of these ancient entities actually entered the streets of New York City and started a cultural revolution that is still transforming our world?
  • Could there be a mystery that lies behind the sign of the rainbow and why it is now saturating our culture—a mystery that goes back to the tablets of ancient Sumer? 
  • Could the mystery of the gods actually have determined the outcome and timing of Supreme Court rulings down to their exact days?
  • Is it possible that the dynamics of ancient mythology have played out in our public squares in city streets in real time?
  • What is it all leading to? And what do we need to know in dealing with them – and in view of the future.  This is the mystery The Return of the Gods will reveal…

To this reviewer, this new book truly explains the extremely troubling, blasphemous machinations being carried on in cultures and societies at this late moment in human history. Don’t miss this one!
