Throughout human history, every great society has eventually entered a period of decline, and sadly, say the leaders of a worldwide movement called "The Return," that is happening to America as well.
This decline began long before the coronavirus pandemic that rocked the nation. Rather than a health-related or economic decline, it was moral decline—a turning away from God and his plan for America.
"It is the hope of a committed group of national leaders that a global event on September 26 called The Return will wake up the American people while there is still time," said The Return co-leader and bestselling author, Jonathan Cahn. "Our prayer is that our nation will return to the values and the principles upon which this nation was founded."
Cahn pointed to Revelation 3:1-3 (ESV): "I know your works. You have the reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you."
He and co-leader Kevin Jessip, president of the Global Strategic Alliance, say there are at least four reasons The Return is so critical—now:
- The course that America and much of the world is on.
- The upcoming election.
- The shaking of the virus.
- The need for world revival.
"Without revival, America and its future will be lost," Jessip added. "Therefore, we have a window of time we may never have again. Most of us don't want to look at the negative, but few positive glimmers here and there give a false sense of security to what is really happening in our nation."
The Return is centered around a major event on Sept. 26 in Washington, D.C.—40 days before the presidential election and on the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. Surrounding "The Day of Return" on Sept. 26 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, especially as America and much of Western civilization was founded on a biblical foundation stone but has turned away from that foundation.
Cahn and Jessip are joining with others such as Dr. James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Gordon Robertson, Anne Graham Lotz, Alveda King, Michele Bachmann, Marcus Lamb, Bishop Harry Jackson and many more, who are all helping to spread the word about The Return.
