Imagine you are building a house and the foundation is cracked. Would you continue building the house by going to the next level & ignoring the cracks or would you stop and fix the cracks? The answer is the latter. We want to work on the foundation, taking our time, and filling in those cracks in the foundation, before we move on and build the rest of the house. A building is only as solid and strong as its foundation. Are you building your house on earth like a foolish man or on a rock like a wise man (Matthew 7:21-29 & Luke 6:46-49)? If your house is built on the wrong foundation or no foundation, it will not be able to stand, when violent storms come. There will be trials and tribulations over the course of our life. You will only make it through the storm because your life was founded on the Word of God, obeying the Word of God and knowing and trusting Jesus Christ/Yeshua, as a result of a strong, solid foundation. Jesus Christ/Yeshua “the Son of the living God” is the foundation and cornerstone and each believer is a stone. Since many will stumble over him, Jesus Christ/Yeshua is referred to as “a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence” because they reject him or refuse to believe who He is (1 Peter 2:5-8). There can be no foundation other than Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11). He is the foundation of our life. Are your congregation building their lives on God’s values or on “worldly pleasures” (1 John 2:15-17)?
During the 50 Days event, we are spend 2 weeks on the adults, because many of them have no or weak foundations. Once the adults have their own “personal spiritual awakening” by aligning their lives with the Word of God with a renewed mind and heart, then it will take on a ripple effect. It will cause healing and transformation in their children, families, communities, churches/synagogues & in their national leaders.
WHY? International Spiritual Awakening is a God-sent Spiritual Awakening given to Letitia Peters. On October 10, 2010 called her to start America's Spiritual Revival. Due to the state of the whole world, God recently asked her to change the name of the America's Spiritual Revival to the International Spiritual Awakening. International Spiritual Awakening Ministries is following the principles of 2 Chronicles 7:14. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) 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." Many pastors have been quoting this scripture, but are they ready to take action? It is time to walk the walk.
The spiritual and morale state of this world is spiraling downward and while many people in the Christian Church are watching and talking about it. We want people to experience their own personal spiritual awakening by developing a personal relationship with God. God wants a relationship with every person. By being a true follower of God, it is not a religion, but a relationship with Him. It is time for us to use the Power of the Blood of Jesus Christ/Yeshua of Nazareth and the Word of God to turn our situation around in America and the world. In other words, we must put our spiritual abilities to work!
America’s foundation is based upon Judea-Christian principles. On April 30th, 2012 America celebrated the 223rd anniversary of the inauguration of the first President of the United States, George Washington. At his inauguration, seven distinctly religious activities were included in this first presidential inauguration that have been repeated in whole or part in every subsequent inauguration: (1) the use of the Bible to administer the oath; (2) solemnifying the oath with multiple religious expressions (placing a hand on the Bible, saying “So help me God,” and then kissing the Bible); (3) prayers offered by the president himself; (4) religious content in the inaugural address; (5) the president calling on the people to pray or acknowledge God; (6) church inaugural worship services; and (7) clergy-led prayers as stated in Dave Barton’s (www.wallbuilders.com) article states in his article “America’s Religious Heritage as Demonstrated in Presidential Inaugurations”. Dennis Kucinich, United States Congressman from Cleveland, Ohio wrote a very touching “Prayer for America”, which can be found at http://www.raven1.net/mcf/prayer-for-america.htm.
(This section was obtained from the article WND EXCLUSIVE 'The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment': U.S. in crosshairs Messianic rabbi reveals striking parallels between fall of ancient Israel, America You can view the entire article online at the above website http://www.wnd.com/2012/02/the-isaiah-910-judgment-u-s-in-crosshairs/)
“In Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s book, The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future” “(www.theharbingerwebsite.com), he states that America’s Leaders have uttered the words of Isaiah 9:10 “the bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.” It is amazing how these few verses collate with what has happened at Ground Zero.
He compares this to the sycamore tree that was felled that day on 9/11. He says that a type of cedar tree was brought in to replace it. He quotes many journalists who described the scene as a pile of bricks. He also speaks of the huge hewn cornerstone which was quarried out of the Adirondack Mountains in New York and brought to Ground Zero as a cornerstone. Rabbi Cahn goes on to explain: “These words were first uttered by leaders in Israel and in response to a limited strike by Assyria on the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali – an attack the prophet makes clear is actually part of a limited judgment by God against apostasy. It wasn’t meant to destroy the nation, but to awaken it, according to most commentaries.”
He reveals other striking comparisons to what happened during the days of Isaiah against the Hebrew nation to that of what is happening to the American nation today. He says the scripture told of the early destruction of both nations. He feels that this scripture reveals what he calls “An ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future and the collapse of the global economy.” Rabbi Jonathan Cahn states, “Before its destruction as a nation, ancient Israel received nine harbingers, prophetic omens of warning,” he says. “The same nine harbingers are now manifesting in America with immediate ramifications for end-time prophecy. We are witnessing the rapid slight of American and western civilization away from God, away from its Judeo-Christian foundation, and away from God’s word and ways. And it’s not only the word “God” – but the words “under God” which are under attack. That’s also very significant – It’s a sign of a nation removing itself from any accountability, any responsibility, and any relationship to God or His Word”.
But, says Cahn, Israel didn’t take the cue. Instead, the response from the people in Isaiah 9:10 is one of defiance. The brick buildings were toppled, but they vowed to build bigger and better. The little sycamore trees may have been uprooted, but they vowed to plant bigger and better cedars in their place. They were defiant against God.
In an effort to bring the nation hope and reassurance on September 12, 2001, after the bombing of the World Trade Center Towers, former U.S. Senator Tom Daschle read from the Isaiah 9:10 passage. His career ended in a disaster. Rabbi Cahn says, “Daschle has no idea what he is doing here. He thinks he’s offering comforting words to a grief-stricken people, but he is actually embracing the spiritually defiant and arrogant words of the children of Israel, proclaiming the ancient and ominous vow of the leaders of that nation. He doesn’t realize it, but he is actually inviting more judgment on the nation.”
Then on the third anniversary of the explosion of the tower in 2004, John Edwards read the same passage – and he ended his career in disgrace. Rabbi Cahn says in his book, that Senators Daschle and Edwards did not have a clear understanding of what they were reading or doing. “

Here is the comment Shadow, President Obama gave in his first speech to a joint session of Congress in 2009:
"While our economy may be weakened and our confidence shaken, though we are living through difficult and uncertain times, tonight I want every American to know this,” Mr. Obama said. “We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.”
In other words, Cahn says the nation is a defiant posture toward God. We will rebuild "without" God. Even if we have been humbled, we, in our pride, will make things better and become stronger.
"President Obama's declaration that we will rebuild, we will recover did NOT acknowledge "with God's grace" as many predecessors had done in making similar declarations - but it is in the same spirit of "self-will" as the speeches that directly cited the Isaiah passage."
Is America under judgment because of the prophetic words spoken by 3 America’s Leaders, where 2 have already fallen from grace? Is it a coincident that all 3 leaders are Democrats? They may not have known what they were reading and doing, but did the speech writers know? The Word of God has SUPERNATURAL POWER. Those prophetic words that were spoken should be renounced and reversed in Jesus’ name in a public setting by several America’s Leaders in Washington, DC and New York City before it is too late. Is this Heal Our Nations By W.R.A.P.P.I.N.G. Event and Rabbi Jonathan Cahn book, “The Harbinger: The Ancient Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future” a wake-up call for America and for all nations to either turn to God or turn back towards God before the “hedge of protection” is removed by Him? In Rabbi Cahn’s book, he discussed that Ancient Israel’s pride and failure to heed the harbinger caused them to have bigger and more potent attacks until they were destroyed. America had warnings up until now, but if Americans don’t humble themselves, submit to God, confess and repent of their sin, and turn towards Jesus Christ by faith then God will remove the “hedge of protection” and America could be destroyed just like ancient Israel. Is there a remnant of faithful God's people who want to see America transformed back to God-centered values by committing to take “The Heal Our Nations Promise”?

WHY 50 DAYS? In the Bible, 50 is the number of power, celebration, jubilee or deliverance. During this time, we are expecting the Holy Spirit to let loose worldwide. We are expecting to see transformation in individuals, families, communities, churches/synagogues, and nations. Here are our 12 expectations:
· Increase in the number of people who will experience their own personal spiritual awakening by developing a personal relationship with God, seeking Him first by humbling themselves, submitting themselves to God, meditating and studying the Bible daily, obeying the Word of God and praying without ceasing;
· Increase in the number of people who will learn how to free from their own sins, as well as, from their generational curses/iniquities;
· Increase in the number of healings from all manner of sickness and disease;
· Increase in the number of families and relationships that are reconciled;
· Increase in the number of families making a commitment to spend more "family devotion time" together;
· Increase in the number of people who are renewing their dreams;
· Increase in the invitations for people of all ages and from all walks of life who will confess with their mouths and believe in their hearts that Jesus Christ/Yeshua is the son of God/Yahweh and that Jesus Christ/Yeshua rose from the dead in 3 days and who will confess with their mouths that Jesus Christ/ Yeshua is their Lord and Savior over their lives;
· Increase in the number of nations that will show signs of restoration, healing, and turning back to God;
· Increase in the number of Jewish and Gentiles church/synagogue leaders who will put their differences aside and unite together as one because Jesus Christ is their Lord and Savior;
· Increase in the number of Jewish and Gentiles church/synagogue leaders who will preach and teach on the full Gospel of God's Kingdom including the subjects of sin, casting out demons and raising people the dead even at the expense of making some of their congregation squirm. As a result, many false teachers, false preachers, and false doctrines will be exposed worldwide.
· Increase in the number of people who are working together in one accord to improve their communities and
· Increase in the number of churches/synagogues holding spiritual awakenings/revivals worldwide.
If we take the first step by doing everything that God requires us, God will hear our prayers and heal our nations.
