For a few weeks, I have been pondering 2 Chronicles 7:14. The scripture begins, "If MY people which are CALLED BY MY NAME....." If we are His people and called by His name then that means the "Christians," the "SAVED" people. THEN, the scripture continues and says, "...will turn from THEIR WICKED WAYS..." Tell me, what are the "wicked ways" of the people of the Name?
The church (people of the Name) has not seriously considered this scripture and diligently sought to discover and remove whatever this wickedness may be. I'm not sure what it is, but I believe it could include the pride of life and lust of flesh. Many of "the church" have become pompous, proud, and seek to fulfill their own fleshly desires above the will of God. There are too many Pharisees in the "people of the name." 2 Corinthians 13 seemingly has been forgotten. Where is charity? Until the "people of the name" realize this, join forces in sincere prayer AND REPENT, America will continue to slide into gross immorality and become further diseased. Christians, it is our obligation to remove all wicked ways from ourselves before God will send healing to our land.
