As America Spirals into Chaos, Faith Leaders Summon Christians to ‘The Return’

Pastor Jessip: ‘Our Lord Always Has Remedy for a World in Chaos’

NEW YORK — Faith leaders are calling Americans toward nationwide prayer and repentance as the country spirals downward in a crisis characterized by the desecration of the traditional family, disregard for the sanctity of life, and pornography addiction.

America’s crisis long preceded the coronavirus pandemic, according to Pastor Kevin Jessip and New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Cahn, co-chairs of a grassroots church movement known as “The Return: National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance.”

America has compounded her sins for decades, evidenced by an economy that adds $100 million of debt every hour, a culture that witnesses 40% of babies being born to unwed mothers, and 68% of Christian men viewing pornography on a regular basis, Jessip and Cahn write.

Jessip says “The Return” is the American church’s opportunity to humble herself in light of the desperate situation the United States and the world are facing.

“Our Lord always has a remedy for a world in chaos, a remedy he has used for generations to wake up his church, and it is simply this: God raises up chosen men and women,” Jessip said.

“In times such as these, our Lord uses individuals to respond to a world in crisis. He touches his servants in a supernatural way, transforming them and then calling them to a life of total submission to his will.”

Thousands of Christians and several hundred churches and parachurch organizations have booked travel to converge on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on September 26 for a landmark gathering of “The Return” movement.

“The Return” is the American church’s moment to consecrate herself through personal repentance and to position herself to be used as God purifies the bride of Christ, Jessip says.

“When God chooses someone to be set apart for a special, redeeming work, he gives that servant a call — and how the servant responds determines the power and intensity of God’s touch in his life,” Jessip continued. “This is the call to ‘come up,’ and it summons us out of the activities of life and into an unshackled pursuit of God’s presence.”

The call to believers across America and the globe resembles the Lord’s command of Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they may worship me”’” (Exodus 9:1).

Jessip says now is the time for Christ-followers to answer this call, just as Moses did.

“Moses prized the presence of God in his life, as have many Christians who have experienced this call — this divine urge to commune with the Lord,” Jessip said. “The Lord is asking you to ‘come up,’ to meet him on the mount and let him fill you anew with his presence.”

“The Return” is for all believers who love the Lord from all denominations and backgrounds. Leaders already on board with “The Return” include Jonathan Cahn and Kevin Jessip (co-chairs), Mike Lindell, Michele Bachmann, Pat Boone, Dr. James Dobson, Mark Gonzales, Robert Morris, Marcus Lamb, John Kilpatrick, Pierre Bynum, Gen. William Boykin, Carter Conlon, Bishop Harry Jackson, Alveda King, Anne Graham Lotz, Pat and Gordon Robertson, Kevin and Sam Sorbo, Stephen E. Strang, E. W. Jackson and many more supporters listed at thereturn.org/faith-leaders/.

Co-chairs of “The Return” Jonathan Cahn and Kevin Jessip have recorded a special video about the event, which already has over a million views. Watch here.

“The Return” is set for 40 days before the presidential election, and on the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower, in the days of America’s founding and dedication to God. Surrounding the “The Day of Return” on Sept. 26 at the Washington Mall will be 10 days, known from ancient times as the Days of Awe, to be set as a special time of prayer and repentance from Sept. 18-28.

Coordinated events within “The Return” movement will also take place throughout America’s cities, towns, houses of worship and homes, as well as in multiple countries around the world, as many believe the nation has been given a critical window of opportunity to repent and return to God.

OUTRAGEOUS: Supreme Court denies Calvary Chapel church in Nevada its Constitutional rights in 5-4 decision. Religious freedom increasingly at risk.

by joelcrosenberg

SupremeCourt(Washington, D.C.) — When Americans vote in November to elect the President, Senate and House of Representatives, the future of religious freedom is going to be a major issue on the ballot.

The next President is likely to have at least one, and possibly two, seats to fill on the Supreme Court. Will they be filled by liberals or conservatives? The freedom of Christians, Jews, Muslims and others to maintain their Constitutional rights to freely practice their faith increasingly appears to hang in the balance.

Consider the latest outrageous decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. It denied a Calvary Chapel evangelical church in Nevada to have more than 50 people meet together for worship and Bible teaching, even though gambling casinos in the state are allowed to welcome many more than 50 people into their establishments.

How is that possible?

“A sharply divided U.S. Supreme Court denied a rural Nevada church’s request late Friday to strike down as unconstitutional a 50-person cap on worship services as part of the state’s ongoing response to the coronavirus,” reported the Associated Press.

“In a 5-4 decision, the high court refused to grant the request from the Christian church east of Reno to be subjected to the same COVID-19 restrictions in Nevada that allow casinos, restaurants and other businesses to operate at 50% of capacity with proper social distancing,” noted the AP. “Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley argued that the hard cap on religious gatherings was an unconstitutional violation of its parishioners’ First Amendment rights to express and exercise their beliefs.”

Four brave Justices dissented from the ridiculous decision, siding with the Calvary Chapel. They included Gorsuch, Alito, Thomas and Kavanaugh.

Justice Alito was absolutely right when he wrote, “The Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion. It says nothing about the freedom to play craps, or blackjack, [or] feed tokens into a slot machine.”

Likewise, Justice Gorsuch was dead on correct when he wrote, “The world we inhabit today, with a pandemic upon us, poses unusual challenges. But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesar Palace over Calvary Chapel.”
