Title: If My People…
We have heard this passage spoken from the halls of Washington to conversations across our dinner table. Our land needs healing. This passage holds the key, but it may hold more than we may have even considered.
“Thus Solomon finished the house of the Lord and the king’s house. All that Solomon had planned to do in the house of the Lord and in his own house he successfully accomplished. Then the Lord appeared to Solomon in the night and said to him: “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name 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. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place.”
2 Chronicles 7:11-15 ESV
7- This is the number that marks where God is doing something by his spirit apart from any other source. It is the number that marks his rest and he rules over all things created. Seven is perfection of Spirit.
14- It is the number that points to or stands as a witness to God’s spirit moving or made manifest. It has to do with God’s Spirit perfecting something and the drastic measures He will take to make something right. God may be saying I warned you of this happening.
“Numbers that Preach” Troy Brewer
First, I want you to pray – to seek my face.
Second, I want you to repent – to turn.
