OUR NATION IS IN TROUBLE!
Where is THE CALLED?
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)
God is listening for the voice of “The Called”. His ears are attentive to their cry….
God says, “My people have complained, but they have not truly prayed!”
Only “the called” will be able to touch God’s heart and cause him to incline His ear once more. “They” only can initiate true change in the world. Many people are speaking but only certain, chosen of God, can sincerely reach Him. “My people” denotes a specific and certain type of people God is listening for and to; yet truly the ones he is listening for are not the ones that are speaking!
YOU have been called to prayer as your first assignment, especially for this nation and country. Seek the Kingdom of God, first! Make God happy, and in turn we shall be happy! Many of us have been blissfully carried away as into captivity by the lust of this world. God has caused the seasons to turn and the times to become evil even in the fact to cause His people to cry out to Him. Yes there is oppression in the land, depression, obsession, and much more! Yet, God stipulates that the people called by “ My Name”, for such a time as this, can turn my heart and save the land. It doesn’t take many, but the right (chosen) ones! You have been chosen by God.
If my people, whom I created and called for such a time as this, would humble themselves…We have become exalted and high-minded even within ourselves to think that God should just change the world without praying and repenting….We have left the true God of our Fathers and became a vile and wicked nation…..But the chosen, elect of God have power with God to touch His heart and turn it; even to cause Him to repent of the evil concerning us as a entire nation.
There are many people praying… but to whom or what?
The charge is given to the true believers. It is not about the world but about “The Called!” Out of all the people that could pray… even the stranger or foreign captive…God solicits the heart of His people and asks us to turn back to Him. It is not that He doesn’t care about everyone…But WE have become His heart!
DO YOU KNOW HOW IT REALLY FEELS TO HAVE A BROKEN HEART?
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, hat we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not because it knew him not, Beloved now are we the sons of God…” I John 3:1,2a KJV
YOU HAVE BEEN ADOPTED INTO THE ROYAL FAMILY AS A SON, THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST…
NOW ZION, WHAT IS WRONG? PUT ON YOUR STRENGTH AND PUT AWAY THE SOILED GARMENTS. YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A GARMENT OF PRAISE…WALK IN YOUR GARMENT AND USE THE POWER GOD HAS GIVEN THEE AS HEIRS UNTO THE THRONE.
We have been called for this hour and placed as watchmen on the wall and to the gate; and we are failing to report what we see/hear to God. He desires to heal the land and forgive our sins…but we fail to turn and repent in humbleness…Yet we wonder with all the people who proclaim liberty and profess hope….Why is there only a few elect that God will hear? How can such a great nation with so many places to worship be yet so troubled or powerless with few changes; even fighting for its identity as a nation to worship freely their God.
WE HAVEN’T REALLY GOTTEN INTO POSITION AND TO THE HEART OF GOD! HE IS WAITING FAITHFULLY ON US…WITH HIS ARM STRETCHED OPEN STILL. Let us rush to God before it is too late! Seek Him early and seek Him
NOW! For He will not be ignored without consequence…We as the called, know it is destruction determined for the ungodly and the nation that forgets God. WHY DO WE YET TEMPT THE LORD OUR GOD?
UNTO OUR NATION…
But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life;
Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west. I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am He: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. (Isaiah 43:1,4-7,10 KJV)
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)
