“When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 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.
(2 Chronicles 7:13-14 (NIV))
On this anniversary of the atrocious acts of September 11, 2001, I have mixed emotions. We are seeing things rapidly change and most changes are not for the better.
We have allowed ourselves to become a society, or at least a government, of appeasers. Many today are afraid to call evil what it truly is. Many are afraid to speak out for their convictions. Even if people do not profess a faith in Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, we can trace our society’s foundations to the Judeo-Christian ethic. We can trace our founding father’s intentions and spiritual guidance if we will only look at what is right before us.
The very principles upon which this nation were founded are being ignored. They are being expunged from history.
Now is the time to pray. Pray like you have never prayed before!
I know that many, including myself, are tracking the events of the world in relationship to Biblical prophesy. Things are escalating rapidly.
I have a question for each of us to consider with respect to the much hoped for Rapture and Second Coming.
Did Jesus tell us that when we see the signs that we are to give up and wait?
He told us to persevere. He told us to hold fast!
The Body of Christ must unite in our prayers. We must pray. We must be bold.
One thing that I have been watching is the 2 million motorcycle ride to Washington D.C. I am sure that some are part of the Body of Christ and some are not, but what I am overjoyed about is that they are being bold for what they believe in. They don’t like the direction that our country is going. They want it to change back to the principles that made this nation what it is. If they are willing and bold enough to take a stand, why can’t the Body of Christ take a stand and humble ourselves and pray?
God blesses nations and individual people. It is time for the individuals to unite and bless God through our prayers.
