Jonathan Cahn’s Latest Book Opens Up Crucial Answers for the End Times

In today’s world, so many believers are asking, “What’s going on? What do we do?”

What if there was a 3,000-year-old mystery behind the events that we have all witnessed—the Covid-19 pandemic, the storming of the US Capitol, the changing of the Supreme Court—that gives answers?

What if God is giving us a message in the events of our times?

These are the stunning questions asked and answered in Jonathan Cahn’s latest blockbuster bestseller The Josiah Manifesto: The Ancient Mystery and Guide for the End Times, released in September by Frontline Charisma Media.

“What if there was a mystery so precise from the Bible that ordains the exact times these events happened, and where it’s going?” asks Cahn. “In The Josiah Manifesto, all these things converge together to open up a key about what we need to know for what’s coming in the days ahead.”

Although Cahn has written seven other bestsellers including The Harbinger, The Paradigm and The Return of the Gods, he says this book is like no other he has written before. “In this book, almost all the other mysteries that began in my other books are coming together for an answer,” he says. “I felt very strongly that I had to write this book now, for God’s people. It’s a guide for the end times.”


One of the mysteries that Cahn opens up draws a parallel between current events and the biblical story of Esther. The Book of Esther tells how Haman planned to exterminate the Jews of Persia, but Esther and Mordecai stepped in to expose his plan and save the Jews from annihilation.

Mordecai’s plan was an ordinance of nullification that was given on the 23rd day of the Hebrew month of Sivan.

“There are actually two mysteries here,” says Cahn. “One is when Haman makes his decree that brought death and destruction to the Jews. That decree is linked to the Hebrew date Adar 13, which is the 13th day of the 12th month on the Bible’s calendar. In modern times, Roe versus Wade (the court decision that ushered in abortion on demand in America) received its hearing in the Supreme Court on December 13th—the 13th day of the 12th month. It was a decree of death and destruction, on exactly the same day as Haman’s decree.”

The second mystery, says Cahn, has to do with the Supreme Court case of Dobbs verses Jackson, the ruling that upheld the Mississippi law banning abortion after fifteen weeks, and overturned Roe verses Wade.

“The second decree—Mordecai’s decree (Esther 8:8-12)—was issued to nullify the first decree of death and destruction. The Bible gives a date when that decree of nullification went forth—it was the Hebrew date of Sivan 23. Dobbs versus Jackson went forth to the Supreme Court in the summer of 2020, one Jubilee, 50 years after Roe versus Wade went forth to the Supreme Court in the summer of 1970.

“But on the Hebrew calendar, the day that Dobbs versus Jackson went forth to the Supreme Court was Sivan 23, the day of Mordecai’s decree to nullify the decree of death and destruction. In fact, on Sivan 23, Jewish people all over the world are in prayer praying for God to nullify all evil decrees. So as they were praying, the very decree went forth to nullify Roe versus Wade. So as Jewish people were praying around the world for God to “nullify the evil decree,” the case went forth to the Supreme Court that would nullify Roe versus Wade.


“The most colossal and brazen altar of American civilization,” says Cahn, “was Roe versus Wade. On that altar, we sacrificed over 60 million children. On June 24, 2022, that altar was broken. It was the sign of the broken altar—one of the most powerful signs given in the Bible. It tells us that America is at the “Josiah Moment.” And more than anyone else, it points to the man in the Bible known as Josiah According to Cahn, the broken altar points to one man in the Bible more than any other, and that man is King Josiah.

“The last part of this book is literally the manifesto of Josiah, showing us what we need to do. In the days of Josiah, they were engaging in sexual immorality, confusing gender, and offering up their children as sacrifices to foreign gods. We’re living under the exact same time.”

And the time is late, Cahn says. “Josiah was born into an evil time. His father was evil, his grandfather was evil, most of the culture was evil. But Josiah stood for God and changed the course of Israel for an entire generation. Judgment was coming, but God said, ‘I’m going to hold the entire judgment off of the nation because of this one man.’


Cahn believes the same can happen in America. “I believe God is saying we have to be like Josiah now. He lived in a late time, near judgment. We are in a late time in America. But there was revival then, and there can be now.”

The Josiah Manifesto ends on a note of hope. “God is never finished,” says Cahn. “There is a purpose for us, and we are still to be lights to this world, to this nation. Our job is still ahead of us. That is what The Josiah Manifesto is saying. It tells us how to stand when everything looks dark, how to overcome, how to prevail and how to be a light to change our world.”
