A solemn assembly to summon together the whole body of Christ to pray for the church and our nation. Based on the text in 2 Kings 2:19-22, we believe God is calling His people to bring “the salt” which is the church to the head of the waters where the foundation of our American liberty was birthed in Philadelphia and to intercede for God to heal the land.
The people of the city said to Elisha, “Look, our lord, this town is well situated, as you can see, but the water is bad and the land is unproductive.” “Bring me a new bowl,” he said, “and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him.
Then he went out to the spring and threwz the salt into it, saying, “This is what the Lord says: ‘I have healed this water. Never again will it cause death or make the land unproductive.’” 2
And the water has remained pure to this day, according to the word Elisha had spoken. (New International Version)
When is America For Jesus?
September 28th & 29th 2012
Where is America For Jesus?
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This is where the Declaration of Independence was signed. This is the location where the Constitution of the United States was debated and then ratified after much prayer. Additionally, this spot hosted the writing of the Bill of Rights. All of these concepts were harvested from a seed planted by William Penn, a Quaker, who founded Pennsylvania’s government on principles of Freedom & Equality. In 1751 the Pennsylvania General Assembly commissioned a foundry in England to forge a bell in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of William Penn’s Constitution for Pennsylvania, the Charter of Privileges. On the bell is inscribed Leviticus 25:10 which says,
"Proclaim liberty throughout the land unto the inhabitants thereof."
Why America For Jesus?
America is in a state of emergency evidenced by the symptoms of widespread moral depravity and economic meltdown. Education, government, and man’s wisdom cannot solve this problem. There is only one remedy that truly can “heal the Land”-
2 Chronicles 7:14 states: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” God required four things of His people before he would hear them. 1) humility 2) prayer 3) seek the Lord & 4) repentance.
