Fox News: “The White House is waging an all-out assault on religious liberty. Public schools are indoctrinating our children with the gospel of secularism. Hollywood is spewing toxins into our homes. The soundtrack of our lives is a pulsating mix of sex and violence and filth. The American family is in ruins. What was once wrong is now right and what was once right is now wrong.
Our nation stands on a precipice. Freedom hangs in the balance. We live in a postmodern and post-God nation. The perfect storm is brewing. Do not be deceived. There may be a war on religious liberty, but the true target is Christianity.”
Opinion: “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” 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Background on this powerful verse:
The two books of Chronicles were likely written between 450 and 425 B.C. and most Bible scholars agree that the author was Ezra. 1 Chronicles begins at the beginning of history with Adam. The story moves forward to the founding of the Israelite monarchy, King Saul and the kingdom of David.
2 Chronicles covers the kingdom of Judah and Israel with details of the first temple and Solomon’s role in its construction. In the last chapter, Judah is destroyed and the people taken into captivity to Babylon. In the final verses, the Persian king, Cyrus, conquers Babylon and authorizes the restoration of the Temple of Solomon and the return of the exiles from Babylon.
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, God encouraged Solomon by the promise that if His judgment should fall on the nation of Israel for their sin, they need only to turn to Him in repentance and He would forgive them and restore the nation.
That is America’s only hope.
