We declare as Almighty God is our witness and Judge that God wants His people to have Wisdom. Truth and Knowledge are also a part of Wisdom. All three are necessary to receive Healing and Salvation.
Don't deny the Truth of God. Ask and ye shall receive. Reject Truth and suffer a fate of No Return.
Peace and Love,

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 10: SOLOMON PRAYS: GOD WILL HEAL THE LAND
(2 CHRONICLES 7:14 & 1-22)
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
Wisdom is a very important element in an on-going relationship with God. Solomon became the wisest man too ever live by the grace and power of Almighty God. Solomon was the third and last king of united Israel. He was the second son of David and Bathsheba the former wife of Uriah the Hittie.
The Bible records that when he was born the Lord loved him. The Prophet Nathan called the child Jediadah at birth, which means "beloved of the Lord.” However, his love for women became one of his greatest weaknesses. His wives and concubines affected his loyalty to God. While his father David was disobedient to God, he repented early in life. But Solomon who also excessively taxed the people did not learn the lesson of repentance until later in life.
2 Chronicles 7:14. "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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin, and will heal the land."
In the previous chapter of 2 Chronicles Solomon blesses the people and knells in prayer before God. He renders a prayer of dedication for the Temple that has been completed. Thus, an established place has been noted to worship God. The record also shows that God does not need a physical structure to live in. Therefore you can praise and worship God at any time and at any place.
In chapter 6 Solomon prays, he asks God to provide for the people when they sin. God answered with four conditions for forgiveness:
1. Humble yourself by admitting your sins.
2. Pray to God, asking for forgiveness
3. Seek God continually.
4. Turn from sinful behavior.
True repentance is action and not just talk. When one repents there is a change in behavior. If we follow, the previously mentioned four steps to forgiveness God will grant forgiveness. God answers a sincere prayer.
2 Chronicles 6:37-39
6:37 "Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, we have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly;"
Solomon made a prediction that came to pass. Here Solomon predicts the captivity of the people of Israel by the Babylonians. However he asks God to forgive them as they ask for forgiveness through prayer. In Psalms 137 we see another scripture reference to this prophecy.
Ezekiel 37:11 and 1-28.
"Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off from our parts."
Israel was in Babylonian captivity during the time the scripture in Ezekiel was recorded. Thus, it was actual history. This predicted historical event became a fulfilled prophecy. God heard the groaning of the people and brought them out.
Meanwhile Ezekiel as a servant of God is given the interpretation of the symbols noted in this verse. In this chapter Ezekiel will see a vision of things that are about to happen. The dry bones represent the children of Israel in Babylonian captivity. However the Lord tells us that He will give them breath and restore them to a living condition. Therefore, they will be returned to their land and united under our king.
As the contemporary church continues to move from God with their acceptance of the world, God is still able. Thus, He can also restore any church. Therefore, true believers must continue to pray for God to renew the church.
37:14. "And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoke it, and performed it, saith the Lord."
It is for sure that all Christians that truly walk with God should hope and pray that God will put His spirit in the church. God is calling His people back to God. Through God's messages and prayer by the believers a dead church can become alive with the spirit of God.
