Hi, Jesus loves you
Do you know that Christians will be held responsible for the state of their nations, whether good or bad? Man was given dominion to subdue the earth, which he lost after the fall of Adam, but was restored back through Jesus Christ and now in the hands of believing Christians. The exercise of this dominion or lack of its exercise determines the happenings around us. This post emphasizes the position of Christians in the affairs of their nations.
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 (NKJV)
And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace – Jeremiah 29:7 (NKJV)
How much have you contributed to the state of your nation? Many Christians unfortunately join the world to criticize their leaders, they talk and talk and do not exercise their dominion over the situations on ground. Some have even worsened the situation by the words of their mouth – you shall have what you say – Mark 11:23.
Some Christians are even waiting on God to do something about the situations, while God is waiting on them to do something about them. The power and authority over circumstances have been handed over to the Christians for them to establish the will of God upon their nations.
God said in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that if His people who are called by His name will humble themselves, seek Him in prayer, and turn from their wicked ways, He would hear from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their land. God is waiting on the Christians to repent and pray for His intervention in their nations. He doesn’t need the whole nation to do that, he needs just His children. The question is, are you praying?
Also, God expects you as a foreigner in a nation to pray for the peace of that nation if you are to enjoy peace in it (Jeremiah 29:7). Furthermore, in 1 Timothy 2:1-3, the Lord admonished Christians to pray for those in authority so they can live a peaceable life, and He said it is good and acceptable in His sight.Read More
