2nd Chronicles 7:14
By David J. Stewart
The world became so apostate and wicked in Noah's time that God destroyed the world by flood in Genesis Chapter 6. Despite Noah's gospel preaching for 120-years, NO ONE got saved, and so the end came for the wicked. Jesus plainly taught that the End Times would become apostate once again is it was in the days of Noah. Matthew 24:37-39, “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark. And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” They were eating, drinking, marrying, and partying. The truth meant nothing to them.
This describes American society today. People are much more concerned about entertainment than they are about Biblical doctrine and truth. Consequently, our nation is being transformed into a Police State. The only hope is if enough people rise up against the tyranny to make a difference. 2nd Chronicles 7:14 is the answer, “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. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.”
In view of what is happening to the United States today, it is plain to see that we are not obeying this Scripture as God commands. The key phrase in this verse is “seek my face.” Throughout the Old Testament we read about God's face being against those who do evil; but God's face is toward the righteous...
Psalm 27:9, “HIDE NOT THY FACE far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.”
Psalm 27:8, “When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, THY FACE, LORD, WILL I SEEK.”
Genesis 33:10, “And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen thy face, as though I HAD SEEN THE FACE OF GOD, AND THOU WAST PLEASED WITH ME.”
Is God pleased with you? God's face is against evildoers. When a person doesn't pray or read the Bible they are saying, “I can do it by myself God. I don't need your help.” 2nd Chronicles 7:14 speaks of seeking God's face, as king David did in Psalm 27:8 and Jacob did in Genesis 33:10. The way to seek God's face is given in 2nd Chronicles 7:14, i.e., to humble ourselves, pray, and turn from our wicked ways. The average American couldn't care less about the blatant crimes and tyranny happening in Washington D.C.! If good men do nothing, then evil thrives. Sin always undermines a nation's character, making people indifferent and careless. Genesis 33:10 teaches that God's face is toward those who please Him.
God's face is against “SIN CITY” Las Vegas and all who go there to sin. God's face is against Hollywood and all the sexual smut, violence, homosexuality, and cursing in God's name that they promote in movies. God's face is against all the adulterous and sexually promiscuous MTV and CMT (Country Music television) videos. God's face is against the abortion industry and all who support such wickedness. God's face is against the rebellious feminist movement. God's face is against those who break their marriage vows and file for divorce. God's face is against those who bow to statues in the Catholic religion and confess their sins to a priest instead of directly to God.
God's face is against the criminals in Washington D.C. and on Wall Street who have stolen trillions-of-dollars from U.S. citizens. God's face is against the Rock and Pop music industry. God's face is against the homosexual community and their vile “gay agenda.” God's face is against all forms of pornography, whether it be hard core porn or the lewd smut used by advertisers today and sold in every grocery store. God's face is against the lies of Evolution and all who indoctrinate children with such doctrines of devils. God's face is against prime-time television, soap operas, and all the filthy garbage from the networks. God's face is against casino gambling and everyone involved. God's face is against the booze cartel and the truck driver who delivers liquid devil across America, destroying homes and lives.
God's face is against those who live to party, and party to live, selfishly doing their own thing. God's face is against women who dress immodestly. God's face is against all the liars, cheats, and con-artists. God's face is against people who love violence, war, and pride themselves in killing another human being. God's face is against people who are abusive to animals. God's face is against false prophets who corrupt the simplicity of the gospel. God's face is against Communism that robs working men of the fruits of their labours. God's face is against tyranny, oppression, and the taking of men's property and freedom. God's face is against the thieving bankers who hire lawyers to steal men's houses, confiscating people's homes for an unpaid $362 water bill. God's face is against thug police who arrest a 70-year old woman for not watering her lawn. God's face is against thug police. God's face is against mercenaries who kill innocent people, steal their natural resources, and do the dirty-work of evil men. God's face is against all evildoers and workers of iniquity.
I could go on-and-on for 25-pages. America has forgotten the God of the Bible. God's face is against the Supreme Court for legalizing abortion, taking away father's rights over their own child in the mother's womb, and murdering the innocent. God's face is against the dishonest federal income-tax that robs Americans of their wealth, giving billions-upon-billions of dollars away to Israel and foreign nations. It is evil and God's face is against all of them. Hell will be hot enough!
2nd Chronicle 7:14 is not just some cute Scripture to put on a bookmark in your Bible. It's not just a saying to hang on your living room wall. 2nd Chronicles 7:14 is God's answer to the mess that America's in today. The answer is not at 1600 Pennsylvania Street (The White House). The answer is not in Congress. The answer is not in the Senate. The answer is not in the Supreme Court. The answer is not in politics. The answer is not in the Libertarian party. The answer is not in Tea Parties. The answer is not in educating the public. The answer is SEEKING GOD'S FACE!!! God PROMISED that He would heal the land. The criminals in Washington D.C. will never be brought to justice until we as a nation get right with God.
God has given us over to our tormentors, to punish us with tyranny and oppression for our disobedience. Those who will not be controlled by God will be ruled by tyrants! We have brought this evil upon ourselves. Americans today are so saturated with hellish movies, carnal music, obese gluttony, sinful indulgence, reckless spending, idolatrous celebrity worship, and the stench of booze that God's face is totally against them.
People are not humble today. They are arrogant, self-willed, and full of sinful pride. Hardly anyone prays these days, evidenced by all the stress, worry, and panicking in society (Philippians 4:6-7). Half of the American people are taking psychotropic prescription drugs for stress and anxiety. Everybody is worried about their financial future. Jesus said not to worry (Matthew 6:25). You cannot trust God and worry at the same time. If you take time out and really think about it, we treat God so horrible. Look at all the ways in which Americans live their lives completely empty of God. SIN CITY Las Vegas is the biggest insult to God in America. I would not want to be in the shoes of that wicked city. Salem, Massachusetts brags and draws tourists by advertising their city as “The Witch City.” Shame on them!
New Orleans, Louisiana is known for their hellish MARDI GRAS, a demonic orgy of debauchery and wickedness. Hollywood is ground zero for homosexuality and sexual decadence. San FranSICKO has nothing on HollyWEIRD when it comes to homosexuality and blasphemy against God. Judgment is coming, but the judgment coming to America is nothing in comparison to the judgment that awaits the wicked in eternity (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). If you don't fear God... YOU WILL!!! If you are not afraid... YOU WILL BE!!! Hebrews 10:31, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
Christian people who love God care. If more Americans cared then we could stop the wickedness and crimes in Washington D.C., but the heathen lying newsmedia is far more powerful than all of America's churches combined today. This is a sad commentary about America's churches.
The newsmedia is filled with paid professional liars. Literally, most of them don't believe anything they're saying, but they get paid millions of dollars a year to say what they're told. They go to college to learn how to present an argument and sway an audience, even though they don't believe a word of what they are saying. God hates a lying tongue (Proverb 6:16-19). The mainstream newsmedia are a bunch of paid professional liars!
America is going to Hell because not enough people care. If enough Christians in America would seek God's face, then our nation would be healed. Most pastors have their heads buried in the sand, totally ignorant about the New World Order that is enslaving America. Instead of fighting against the evil, they are part of the problem. Every 501C3 church is a State-licensed business. You don't need a license to have a New Testament Church. Where two or more are gathered in Jesus' name, He is in the midst. There's your genuine Church. Most people think of a church only in terms of a fancy building with stain-glassed windows, et cetera. That's a building, not a church. America is overrun with religious buildings; but genuine churches are rare these days.
2nd Chronicles 7:14 is profoundly simple; yet few people care enough about God to obey Him. It is tragic when one thinks about all the people who died in the flood. Jesus said that they were too busy eating, drinking, having sex, and partying to care (Matthew 24:37-38). When the flood came they didn't know what hit them. It was over before it began, and they all went to Hell for ever to burn. The Bible is so accurate about everything in this life. The more I search the Scriptures, the more I realize just how real it all is. Heaven is real. Hell is real.
If I weren't a Christian for the Bible's sake, then I would become a Christian just because of all the occultism, Satanism, and worship of the beast I see in the world today. I mean, how much more proof do you need that the Bible is truthful in everything it says? Look at all these people who flash Satan signs (video). That alone makes me want to obey God and draw closer to His Word. Maybe you don't believe the Bible; but I'll tell you what, those people in the video I just shared with you all believe in the Devil. Don't be a fool, make sure you've been born-again.
