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
This is a well known and quoted verse within the Chistian community. I was recently reminded that the context of the verse is never mention which is so relevant today.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 14 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.
Verse 13-14 is one sentence and needs to be taken together to maintain the contex and proper meaning. God stated that if he did anyone of three things and his people repented that he would heal their land. Today God has brought all three judgments upon the earth.

Today the United States is divided 50/50 and a nation divided cannot stand. There is no middle ground, no center, the war is approaching its final battle if those who are call by God's name fail to repent, pray, and seek God's face, turning from their wicked ways, then the blessing of America shall cease and we will loose the light of God's libery.
My fear is that Christians today are so ignorant of God's word they will not know what they have to repent of. They have fallen prey to many false doctrines as being able to lose your salvation, obtaining it or maintaining it by works, or being predestitated to one or the other. The Churches are nest of fornication and adulty all aproved and santified by the spiritual leaders whom many are guilty of the same.
How many Christians are actually looking for and desiring the return of our Lord and Saviour. To most it is a dreaded day, one step closer to having to stand before the judgment seat of Christ and answer for the life they lived.
2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
September 26 has been designated a national day of pray and repentence. You can find information about it at "thereturn.org". I may not agree with some of the doctrinal teachings of the board of advisors but I agree that America is at the end of its rope and God's people need to repent and seek him in truth. I would call upon all who have trusted in the shed blood of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins by faith in his death and resurrection to join in the prayer and repentence for out peace, our safety, our liberty and most importantly for God's glory.
