There is much that I have been thinking about regarding the past few days of murders, peaceful gatherings, non-peaceful gatherings, and altercations. All hell is breaking loose, literally,all hell is breaking loose. Why? Because, as a country, we have left God out of almost everything. Prayer brings more changes than protesting does. What if, instead of a peaceful march down 94, it would have been hundreds praying on I-94?
How many lives need to be lost until we are obedient to the word of God? We repeat 2 Chronicles 7:14, so why are things not changing? It is easy to repeat scripture. Is it difficult to live it? To do what is mandated? Please read all of chapter 7. You will find that God told Solomon that because of the disobedience of the people, he was going to close up heaven and there would be no rain...
Closing up heaven means the land would no longer receive the blessings of God, but, we would receive his wrath....He would send locusts to devour the land, or pestilence...BUT THAT, this wrath would be withheld if God's people, not just any people, God's people, those who profess him as their Savior, would stop being prideful,would pray, would stop their wicked behavior, yes, Christian's can be wicked, then, God would forgive them and heal their land.
What is going to change the course of evil, or present day wrath? It will take living 2 Chronicles 7:14, not just giving it mental assent.
