Will You Help Save our Country from Evil and Sin?
The answer to the massive amounts of evil and corruption we see in the world today lies with the church.
It is up to us, God's people to 'humble themselves, pray and seek (His) face, and turn from their wicked ways'.
SHALLOWATER, TX - God's people are more sensitive to the questions of good and evil than the secular world, due to the Word of God, the awareness of Christ and the Holy Spirit.
This awareness and sensitivity of the Church and God's people to the Lord results in various actions and organizations, and sometimes lawsuits, as God's people attempt to fulfill the Word through various outreaches, charities, orphanages, teaching, hospitals, prison ministries and other works.
While not everyone can participate in all of the above ministries, one of the biggest realms in which every person can impact the earth is through prayer. Not everyone has the ability or means to be a missionary, or run an outreach, but all can pray.
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. II Chronicles 7:14 KJV
In that verse there is no mention of the heathen, the wicked, or the secular.it is simply, 'if my people, God knows the amount of evil going on throughout the earth. Yet it is up to God's people to 'humble themselves, pray and seek (His) face, and turn from their wicked ways'.
The fact is, throughout the Old Testament, it was when Israel had turned from the Lord, and gone astray, that their enemies began to have the ascendancy. When the nation returned to God in repentance, they were able to defeat the enemies.
That is a lesson for today. As the church repents and turns back to the Lord, as it seeks His face, as it turns from its wicked ways, the promise is, 'then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.'
God knows the amount of evil going on throughout the earth. It is reported on day and night in the news. We see all sorts of evil and outrage against morality and the laws of God. The answer, the final solution, for God healing this nation, or any nation, is the church seeking the Lord, following II Chronicles 7:14.
