II Chronicles 7:22 GW "They will answer themselves, 'They abandoned the LORD God of their ancestors, who brought them out of Egypt. They adopted other gods, worshiped, and served them. That is why he brought this disaster on them.'"
Romans 10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
Truth or consequences. When we don't accept truth--and God is truth--we accept a lie. We do things our way and try to believe that's good enough. It isn't. All my good works, all my righteousness pales in the light of the darkness of my heart. Only submitting to the Lordship of our Savior will we know a positive outcome--life.
So it is with nations. Nations that turn away from God, from truth, with those who ridicule faith, call down upon theme the consequences of their actions.
America as a nation has turned it's back on the very One who has so blessed this nation.
We're seeing the consequences in people blinded by lies, by unrest, by degredation, by failing families, churches that don't honor God, and a hostility toward Christianity and all that is good, honorable and holy.
We have a nation de-constrcting. Can our nation be resurrected? There is only one way. As individuals and as a nation we must reurn to our foundations in Jesus
V. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
II Chronicles 7:14 GW However, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their country.
