It Is Past Time

 

Presented by Pastor Randy Capote

Our society has changed greatly in my lifetime! Some would say we have progressed, but I would say we have declined in many areas, especially in the area of morality. So, if true, where does the finger of responsibility point? Politicians? Media? Liberal educators? Hollywood? NO!! The responsibility rests with us- the church of Jesus Christ, because the only reason darkness prevails is because the light has stopped shining! It is time for the church in America to look within and then look to God for the solution. Join me as we consider a familiar passage in 2 Chronicles 7:11-15.

(11)Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD and the king’s palace, and successfully completed all that he had planned on doing in the house of the LORD and in his palace. (12)Then the LORD appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. (13)“If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, (14)and 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, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (15)“Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
