While spending quiet time in the presence of the Lord, I heard the rustle of the onion paper in my Bible flip a page, so I looked over to it and read Second Chronicles 7:3. And I pray, just as it was in the days of King Solomon, “When all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped and praised the Lord, saying; ‘For He is good, For His mercy endures forever.'” I pray this over our nation, that as the Church repents, the Lost will see the fire of God fall down upon us, and His glory surround us, and they too will fall to their knees with their faces to the ground and humbly surrender themselves to our Lord and King–Jesus Christ.
This leads me to two important questions. What fuels this fire and glory? God’s goodness and His mercy towards His people. And how do we access His goodness and mercy over our nation? First Chronicles 7:14 tells us how, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
As we can see this promise to forgive our sin and heal our land is conditional. As God’s people are we willing to meet His conditions to humble ourselves, and pray and seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways? The responsibility lies within us, but so too is the answer. There is only one way to Salvation–through the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ. But if we, God’s people refuse to live according to God’s ways, how can they? According to the Word of God, we are the salt of the earth. (See Matthew 5:13.) Just like salt enhances the flavor of food, so too are we to enhance the flavor of God’s goodness and mercy upon this earth. There isn’t anything more appealing to the spiritual appetite of the Lost than a Christian who truly walks with God, and lives according to His ways. We are called to be “Salty Christians”.
So are you willing to do whatever it takes to bring down the fire and the glory of God upon us, and cause the Lost to desire this great Redemption? I pray so.
