An Urban Prophet's Translation of II Chronicles 7:14 for America Today

"If my people which are called by My Name, will stop worrying about government providing for them and taking thought about provision, I have already promised them and begin to walk in and stand for righteousness, I have already given them, then, I will forgive them of their insecurity, I will repair their broken economy, I will restore their prosperity, and heal their land." God appoints leaders based on the proper response from His people to His charge in II Chronicles 7:14, the emphasis being on "if." It's the church's mandate and responsibility to be properly positioned to invoke the favor and blessing from the Father in the land where they dwell. What's going in the White House reflects what's going on in God's House. If you don't like what's going on in the White House, there must be a serious problem in God's House and that's where you have to first look to solve the problem.

God has done everything possible to get the Church to respond to the II Chronicles 7:14 mandate and to discern the times and seasons. This present administration just doesn't only support, but aggressively advocates the systematic child killing Abortion Industry, which has resulted in a genocidal effect on the Black Community. Over 21 million African-Americans have been mutilated and killed in the wombs of their mothers since Roe vs. Wade. As well, this same administration has determined that clergy, such as myself, are bigots for not performing same-sex marriages and recommends we should renounce our allegiance and loyalty to the Judeo-Christian Ethic bowing to a central government.

Then there is the insidious healthcare plan which declares the state now trumps faith and conscience. This legislation demands that religion must come under its regulation or else face the wrath of the state. Refusing to kill a child in the womb is no longer your prerogative; you must capitulate and assist in the process. One can hear the Angels in Heaven saying, "Surely there will be an outcry from the Church now." But this was not so... Only a few of its members, mostly Catholic, were moved to protest this outrageous legislation. And if that wasn't enough, the president of the United States approved a platform that would take the name of God out of the Democrat's National Convention Platform and denounce Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. With such blatant disregard for the Almighty, and the obvious pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood, you would think there would be an alarm sounded of such magnitude that every Protestant Denomination, the Catholic Church, and Jewish Synagogue would flee from this madness and withdraw their blind allegiance. But no... Most still went to the polls and pulled the lever voting for the very platform that booed God and Jerusalem as Israel's Capitol completely ignoring God.

As the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King prophetically spoke at the Second Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan on February 28th, 1954, in a Sermon he entitled, "Rediscovering Lost Values," "America must rediscover lost values and remember there is a God in the process." I beg of you, read this message in its entirety, but to whet your appetite, here are a few excerpts from the prophet which timelessly speak so clearly to us today.
