TODAY'S MANNA  for Thursday  May 17, 2018
Are you called by His name?
 
      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 will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14              New International Version
 
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
    First I want you all to notice who God is talking about here.  His people, Christians, not the people of the world who are still lost & without hope & without God. He’s not talking to the religious fanatics who call themselves Christians, not cult churches who try to lead you to believe they are Christians, not the homosexuals and lesbians and LGBTs that call themselves ‘gay’.  They couldn't even humble themselves and pray even if they wanted to - they don't know how and they don't have the fellowship yet with God for Him to hear their prayers.  Besides why should they care, they don’t believe in God.
    Our country's moral ethics are at the lowest I've ever seen, and they are still in a downward spiral. They must be approaching that which was in the days of Noah! Oh, remember Sodom and Gomorrah? We’re headed to the same end as they had. And that can only mean we are very near the end of time as we know it.
    Along with the morals being in such a decadent state look at our economic situation.  And even now our government is trying to turn us into a socialist country. Corrupt presidential elections, the 2008 and 2012 elections were rigged and fixed so that the democrats won, regardless of how the general public really voted, not what the people wanted! More like an election in some South Africa countries I have visited where they just bulldoze the opposition!
    Let us not forget what God did to the world in the days of Noah, or what He did at Sodom and Gomorrah, He can do it again.  Not by water, but maybe by fire!  Are we about to see a cleansing of the earth again? And that can only mean we are very near the end.
    Let us, as children of the Most High God, get before our God and ask His forgiveness for this once great country, He said My people - not the worldly, cults, or religious people.
    Humility is not our culture's biggest asset or our most desired character quality.  But humility is what is demanded by God not so much because it's commanded (though that would be enough), but because without it he doesn't even hear our prayers.  Every year brings another wave of major failures in morality, character, and spirituality to this nation (and the rest of the world.)   Rather than progressing as a culture, we find ourselves regressing, though most do not think so.    Everyday the news is full of more stories that show our morality is in deep decay, it is in a death spiral going down.  Child molestation, incest, adultery, homosexual and lesbian activity and all the other types of immorality that does NOT belong in this people let alone in His Church.   And that can only mean we are very near the end.
    It is time that those who are called by His name (those who are really true Christians), humble themselves before Him, ask forgiveness through prayer, and then really do change.  Being humble is not being poor and weak.  Being humble is knowing when and how to get on your face before God and cry out to Him for help, knowing that you cannot do anything for yourself without Him.  So let's get humble and call upon the Lord for help for this nation (your nation, the world) and not only ours but all nations! It’s time that we as Christians are heard just as loud as those who are trying intimidate us and make us embrace and do their ways! We have just as much right to our beliefs as they do theirs, in fact even more since ours are (should be anyway) God’s beliefs!
    I ask all who read this to truly search your hearts and then with all your heart to pray this prayer from your heart both for yourself and for this country of ours and especially for all of our Military members wherever they may be today.  Without our military being where they are and doing what they are doing this nation would NOT be free today!
 
MY PRAYER...
            Holy and Almighty Father God, Your deeds are awesome, Your faithfulness is overwhelming, and Your mercy and grace are unwarranted yet very welcome.  I come to You knowing that You hear me,  despite the incredible distance between You and I, between Your worth and holiness and my lack.  I confess that I, and my culture and the country around me have made a mess of what You so wonderfully blessed us with.  I come humbly asking that You reassert Yourself in our nation and in our land in clearly recognizable ways.   That You would heal our land as you said you  would.  That you would show those who are without You who You are and how they are wrong. 
Father, that You place Your Holy angels around our military and that You show them things to come before they happen.  That you would foil the enemy's plans against our military and expose them on every front.  Lord and Father I pray that You would send laborers into the harvest while the harvest is still ripe.  That You give us strength where we are weak and make us strong through Jesus to be what You would have us to be and to do what You would have us to do.  I ask this in faith through Jesus Christ my Lord.
Amen
