If we truly want America to have revival it must first repent. If we truly want America to repent the Church must first repent.
The Church is supposed to be the spiritual and moral guide for America. If the Church is full of sin and immorality how can it guide America out of its sin and immorality?
I hear people say things like, “If the Church would rise up and vote together we would change America.” This is not a true statement because the Church is not united. The Church cannot and therefore will not rise up as one because there is too much sin and immorality in her. Therefore America cannot be changed by the Church. This is good news for the Church and America.
I’ve heard it said that, “During severe persecution the Church thrives.” This is true, therefore the continued spiritual and moral decline of America will lead to true persecution of the Church in America. This will lead to the separation of the sheep and the goats or, the true followers of Christ from the name only followers of Christ. This will cause the true followers of Christ to grow in faith, hope and love until there is revival in the Church which will lead to revival in America.
If that is not what we, the Church want then we must stop quoting 2 Chronicles 7:14 and begin believing 2 Chronicles 7:13-15, “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 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.”
If we believe that GOD’s judgment is on America then we the Church (His people) must humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, this is what repent means. Then He will hear our prayer forgive our sin and heal America. Because, we will only get His attention in a positive way if we are humble and seek Him and His Kingdom first.
