"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."(2 Chronicles 7:14)
"If my People" We have the power to change the world!! Every time the people of God acknowledged their need of God's forgiveness, He healed their land. In this passage of scripture, "land" refers to all things that involve us, the people of God. God cares about everything that involves us from A to Z. "Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance."(Ezra 8:21). If we the church believe this scripture and apply it to our lives, it will completely change our future. We are facing overwhelming challenges, insurmountable burdens and a demonic force that is trying to destroy our nation, The United States of America!! We live in a great country that allows us freedoms that other parts of the world doesn't know they exist. On a trip to a third world country, that is anything but Christian, I had the very enlightening experience of watching the Communist Party (socialism) marching in the streets!!! I know we were told that systems of thought like communism is dead but it is more alive today than ever, trying to destroy our public and personal opportunity to be successful. As I watched "The hammer and sickle communist flag", being carried by hundreds, maybe thousands in a parade, I couldn't believe my eyes. The streets were filled with poor lost hungry people marching for a philosophy of life that takes everything you own under the illusion that all things will be distributed equally by the smart people that think for us!! Question, "Should a man that is lazy and won't work, be given part of your hard earned money?", not according to the Bible!! "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat."(2 Thessalonians 3:10) Our government is taking us back from whence we came, overworked, overtaxed and supporting a group of people that would not work if you melted a job and poured it on them. We need to repent of our sins, turn from our wicked ways, ask God to restore our foundation of righteousness, work ethic and take our country back!! BTW, this is a biblical truth, not a political statement.
