2 Chronicles 7.14

This post is only for my Christian brothers and sisters. Seriously – if you’re an atheist, agnostic, or something else, then this post isn’t for you. It’s only for those who see themselves as followers of Jesus Christ.

Here’s my question: Is 2 Chronicles 7.14 true or not?

“if my people, who are called by my name, will 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.”

I honestly believe that neither the Republicans or the Democrats have the answers we truly need in these times. The only person who can solve our problems is Jesus Christ. The promise is clear: If God’s people – not everyone – just the people of God – if they humble themselves, pray, seek God’s face and repent of their sins, he will hear, forgive our sin and heal our land. Our land needs healing.

Do you see the connection between your personal holiness and the core purposes of your life and our societal circumstances?

Christians needs to take seriously our responsibility to repent of our sins and turn our attention to God. We’re the ones who are supposed to be regenerated and have a new nature, but most of the time, we appear to be people who are anything but what we claim to be.

The time is now. Will you get on board?

One thought on “2 Chronicles 7.14”

  1. I don’t disagree that our land needs healing, but isn’t the context of this verse about praying towards God’s temple and directly addressed to the people of Israel? That’s not to say that God doesn’t want us to humbly seek him and turn from sin and live holy lives, but I’m just not sure we can claim this promise for our specific time and place.
