WHAT IS THE RETURN?
A movement, an appointed time, and a specific day set apart for one purpose – the return to God, that there be a coming before His presence in humility, in sincerity in prayer and repentance, that there be intercession for America, for each other, and for oneself, for God’s mercy, for salvation, for healing, for revival, for restoration, and for the fulfillment of God’s purposes for America and all who dwell within it.
America has in great measure departed from God and His ways. We have forgotten the Rock upon which we were founded. And we have removed Him from our public squares, our culture, and our lives. It is written in the Scriptures that righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people and, further, that the ways of unrighteousness lead to judgment. But the Scriptures also set forth that God is love and abounding in mercy and that all who come before Him to seek for His mercy will find it – and that in repentance and return will come forgiveness, salvation, healing, revival, and restoration. It is upon that foundation that this promise is given: ‘If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their sinful ways, I will hear from heaven, I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.”
As a movement of prayer, repentance, and return, it begins from this moment forward.
As a time and season, it will be focused on the biblical ten-day period beginning with the Feast of Trumpets and ending with the Day of Atonement, (September 18-28) the time known as the Days of Repentance. This will also coincide with the four hundredth anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower.
As a day, it will center on Saturday, September 26, 2020. This will fall near the end of the ten-day period. In the time left in that period, it will be sealed with the prayers of God’s people in their houses of worship and individually before the Lord.
The day following the event, Sunday, will be set for sealing what has been done and praying for the nation and revival in houses of worship throughout the land.
And from then on it will continue in whatever fruits and ramifications are therein birthed.
It will take place throughout the nation in prayer and repentance offered up in houses of worship, state capitals, public squares, in home and households, in events and gatherings, wherever and however, and, individually, in every place and in every heart that is so led.
And on the central day of Saturday, September 26, in addition to the above, it will as well focus on Washington, D.C. in the form of a central event and gathering of prayer and repentance in the nation’s capital on the National Mall in an event also to be known as ‘The Return.’ The gathering will follow the course and purpose of the sacred assemblies as recorded in Scripture.
The Return is for all who know God to draw near in His presence in prayer and intercession, for all who have known God to return, and for all who have not known God but who will now come seeking His presence, and for a nation to return to the Rock of its foundation – for all who will come before His presence according to the purposes stated herein.
