Throughout history, only two nations have been tied together by covenants with God.
"God made a covenant with Israel, but America made a covenant with God," says Rev. Kevin Jessip, founder and president of the Global Strategic Alliance and co-founder of "The Return." "America has broken the covenant made by our forefathers. As we know, from the Bible, God takes covenants very seriously. This has brought our once blessed nation under the judgments of God.
"The Renewal is uniting leaders who believe America is in a spiritual battle for the soul of our nation. Therefore, it must be won in the spiritual realm lead by God according to His Word. We must pray, then take a step of bold faith to re-establish America's covenant with God and plead for His mercy as we seek to restore our foundational values based on God's Word, the everlasting covenant, the Bible."
